A Possible Covid-19 Therapy

While doing my demographic model there seems to be a statistical anomaly in relation to elevation, and therefore air pressure and outcomes. It might be a spurious correlation, but it could suggest a possible therapy for serious patients. We know that Covid-19 damages the cells in the lungs but nobody has really detailed the mechanisms […]

Patterns of Covid 19 Strains

Since the virus first appeared in humans in China around October 2019, about 470 days ago, the numbers have probably produced 1,000 or more different variants of Coronavirus, most being trivial. It’s all dependent on linear time for development where there is a chance of a new strain developing from an old one and the […]

Coronavirus Risks 6 (SARS-CoV-2)

I’ve been following the virus for 60 weeks now now. Originally I thought that it would be very limited, but that changed about 58 weeks ago, when the numbers began to rise and we found out more about it. The infected seem to consist of a lot that are in recovery, official active cases currently […]

Assessing of Risks Generally

One of the blessings or burdens of intelligence is the assessment of risks. Animals in general are pretty poor about working out consequences, usually only able to deal with very simple action and reaction situations. When playing chess with a chimpanzee they still show some form of lateral thinking, able to chew bits off a […]

Covid-19 Vaccines and the UK

In the UK we have 15 million flu vaccinations a year, so about 290,000 a week. The plan is to administer 500,000 Covid-19 vaccinations a week on top of this, nearly doubling the number we do for flu, so existing jabs are planned to change by a factor of 3. We may have problems with […]

Is Fusion Power Viable?

As a rough guide 1 gram of antimatter produces about 40 megatons of TNT, but costs presently around $60,000,000,000,000 to make, or $1.50 per kilogram of TNT power. It may become a source of power in decades or centuries time but is not viable at the moment. So, we come down to the next source […]

The Current Covid-19 Position 22/12/2020

I’ve been analysing the figures that each country reports and there is a lot of discrepancy between what is reported and what you would normally expect the numbers to be given the progression of the disease that the virus normally takes. Some suggest that they have very long infection periods in that country, way beyond […]

Coronavirus Risks 5 (SARS-CoV-2)

I’ve been following the virus for over 50 weeks now. Originally I thought that it would be very limited, but that changed about 49 weeks ago, when the numbers began to rise and we found out more about it. The infected seem to consist of a lot that are in recovery, active cases currently 28.9% […]

The Last Supper

Today I though I would have a day of negative sanity for a change. Reality isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be, and a mental holiday is something that can keep you sane. Life’s 2 short it’s said, so I thought I would add a virtual 2 (me = life + 2) and see […]
