CDC finally revealed how long coronavirus immunity lasts – and it looks like bad news

iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

How long does coronavirus immunity last after infection? The CDC quietly published the first defined COVID-19 immunity period on its website.
The virus is too young for healthcare professionals to have an exact timeframe for protection against reinfection.
The CDC quarantine page was updated a few days ago with information that offers a minimum period of immunity.
How long does novel coronavirus immunity last? That’s a question health officials can’t answer for certain since COVID-19 hasn’t existed for long enough to tell. But it’s an answer we need not just for vaccine development, but also for the next stages of pandemic management. How long is a COVID-19 survivor protected for? How bad would a second COVID-19 bout be for people who already had it?

Scientists initially said that coronavirus immunity might match the immunity we get from the other human coronaviruses that cause common colds. That’s anywhere from six to 12 months, and that’s how long we expect vaccines to last as well. Recent data showed that neutralizing antibodies may disappear from the bloodstream within three months, but the immune system also has backup T cells that can kill the virus upon reinfection by kickstarting …

The U.S. now has a half-dozen purchasing agreements with vaccine makers. And there are enough committed doses to immunize 75% of the population in 2021—even assuming 40% of the them fall through, according to Bernstein analyst Ronny Gal.
“Even if (say) two vaccines fail/underperform in trials or manufacturing issues cause only 60% of the promised dose to be delivered, HHS [the Department of Health and Human Services] would have enough to vaccinate [about] 85% of the U.S. population on the existing commitment alone,” Gal wrote in a note on Friday.
“In short, as long as the entire field does not fail, vaccines will available for the U.S. to be immunized in 2021.”
Gal and his colleagues wrote that there appears to be enough data on timing, volumes, and prices to take a swing at modeling the Covid-19 vaccine market. So they did just that.

“Once the developed world approaches vaccination rates of 50%, demand will slow down and substantial volume will be shifted towards emerging markets,” they wrote. “Assuming volume in line with projections of companies …

Opinion | The Week QAnon Went Mainstream

iam platform login page background

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

For almost three years, I’ve wondered when the QAnon tipping point would arrive — the time when a critical mass of Americans would come to regard the sprawling pro-Trump conspiracy theory not merely as a sideshow, but as a legitimate threat to safety and even democracy.There have been plenty of potential wake-up calls. Among them: a 2018 standoff at the Hoover Dam with a QAnon believer, the 2019 murder of a Gambino crime family boss by a QAnon supporter who believed the boss was part of a deep-state cabal, an August 2019 F.B.I. report that warned that QAnon could spur domestic terrorism, a West Point report calling the movement “a security threat in the making,” and the April arrest of a QAnon follower who was found with a dozen knives while driving to “take out” Joe Biden, the former vice president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.But it seems the true tipping point came this week. First was the report from Ari Sen and Brandy Zadrozny at NBC News about an internal Facebook investigation that gives the first real glimpse into the size of QAnon’s online footprint. The investigation found millions of members across thousands of QAnon groups and …

sarah simpson column: lacy’s wild ride: social media saves the day – cowichan valley citizen

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Remember back when I wrote a few of my columns about Lucy, the leucistic hummingbird? I can’t believe it was three years ago already. Lucy vanished from the neighbhourhood at some point years ago and although it was a wild bird, I had hoped she’d stick around.
SEE RELATED: A one-in-a-million piece of good news
Recently, however, a little white bird did end up back at its home with the help of a few humans, after six days of being on the lam.
Maple Bay’s Chris Young said the family cockatiel Lacy, (not to be confused with Lucy the wild hummingbird) took off on a six-day adventure. Unbelievably, they got the bird back.
“The reason I found it so amazing was the local valley and neighbourhood network social media platforms; that’s the only reason we got Lacy back,” Young said. “There would have been no way [otherwise]. People need to sign up for these things. They need to use social media for how great it can be to leverage information quickly at the press of a button.”
Lacy, who is often permitted to fly free inside the house, escaped through an open screen door on July 28 …

European travel startups consider filing cartel complaint against Google

european travel startups consider filing cartel complaint against google

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Google is suffering from a deluge of antitrust complaints in countries ranging from the U.S., India, and even the European Union as a whole. Now, some members of the European travel industry want to add to that caseload with complaints that Google is pushing startups out of business.
In a very dense, in-depth piece, TechCrunch reported:

More than half a dozen travel startups in Germany are united in a shared complaint that Google is abusing its search dominance in a number of ways they argue are negatively impacting their businesses.
Complaints we’ve heard from multiple sources in online travel range from Google forcing its own data standards on ad partners to Google unfairly extracting partner data to power its own competing products on the cheap.
[…]
The group is considering filing a cartel complaint against Google, per its report.
One source, who did not wish to be identified for fear of retaliation against their business, told us: “Each travel partner has certain specialities in their business model but overall the strategy of Google has been the same: Grab as much data from your partners and build competing products with that data.”

Google’s search market share in the EU and its …

Brief history of search engine optimization and SEO

brief history of search engine optimization and seo

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

There are a lot of things whose existence we know of, but their history is still mysterious- the history of Search Engine Optimizations is one such mystery. We know SEOs exist, but we don’t really know where they come from. They have been around for decades- somewhat around the formation of Google. We have been using it for years on end- the least we could do is find the history of search engine optimization. Fortunately, marshmallows are medieval concoction, whereas SEO is fairly recent. A completely millennial invention, we can attribute its origin to around 1991. Interestingly, its short life has seen quite a lot of changes- similar to how the Google algorithm has changed itself overtime.
Since we all use it daily, we should get ahead and look up the history of search engine optimizations. But before we do that, we need to understand- What was the need for Search Engine Optimization? Well, in 1945 Dr. Vannevar Bush preached in The Atlantic that there should be a collection of data and records from which existing, parallel records would be drawn out at random, and newer records would be put in. This proposition can be roughly translated into the creation of …
