Leif Gram: Mr. Fix

Проблемы начинаются в семье

foxnews.com -- Jennifer Gates, the eldest daughter of Bill and Melinda Gates, has spoken out about her parents' divorce. In a statement shared to her Instagram Story on Monday, Jennifer, 25, addressed her "friends." "By now, many of you have heard the news that my parents are separating. It's been a challenging stretch of time for our whole family," Jennifer's statement begins. "I'm still learning how to best support my own process and emotions as well as family members at this time, and am grateful for the space to do so. I won't personally comment further on anything around the separation, but please know that your kind words and support mean the world to me," she continued. Jennifer also thanked readers for "understanding" her family's desire for privacy at this time.
Впрочем, надеюсь, что это всего лишь налоговая стратегия.

Эпидемиология

news.yahoo.com -- New York governor Andrew Cuomo implied at a briefing Monday that unvaccinated individuals could threaten the lives of their elderly family members by forgoing the inoculation. “Maybe you go home and kiss your grandmother and wind-up killing your grandmother,” Cuomo said referring to those who have abstained from vaccination.
Я думаю, надо обязательно вакцинироваться. Если 90% людей вакцинируется, им с Фаучи станет стыдно и они подадут в отставку.

Вопросы тоталитаризма и растениеводства

lenta.ru -- Юрист Татьяна Мацукова предупредила российских дачников о штрафах за мяту, одуванчик и ромашку на участке. «Перечень сорных растений определен постановлением правительства РФ от 18.09.2020 № 1482. К числу сорных растений относятся, в частности, борщевик Сосновского, мята полевая, осот полевой, одуванчик лекарственный, ромашка пахучая, чертополохи разных видов, амброзия разных видов», — пояснила Мацукова.
Начинать легализацию советую с одуванчика лекарственного. Разрешить не более пяти растений для личного пользования. Дальше само пойдёт.

Но есть и хорошие новости

foxbusiness.com -- Coca-Cola has paused its controversial diversity plan — that included penalties on outside law firms if they failed to meet racial diversity quotas — after intense backlash. The pause comes after the orchestrator of the plan, Coke’s former general counsel Bradley Gayton, abruptly resigned last month after less than a year on the job and as criticism of the quotas mounted.

Антропология

Отказ от вакцинирования работает: карантинисты умнеют не по дням, а по часам. Вот статья в Атлантике (кто бы мог подумать?!): "What are no-vaxers thinking", by Derek Thompson. По сравнению с предыдущими попытками - небо и земля. Я бы сказал, разом преодолены 3/4 расстояния к здравому смыслу.

For both yes-vaxxers like me and the no-vaxxers I spoke with, feelings about the vaccine are intertwined with feelings about the pandemic. I canceled vacations, canceled my wedding, avoided indoor dining, and mostly stayed home for 15 months. All that sucked. I am rooting for the vaccines to work.

Тhe no-vaxxers I spoke with just don’t care. They’ve traveled, eaten in restaurants, gathered with friends inside, gotten COVID-19 or not gotten COVID-19, survived, and decided it was no big deal. What’s more, they’ve survived while flouting the advice of the CDC, the WHO, Anthony Fauci, Democratic lawmakers, and liberals, whom they don’t trust to give them straight answers on anything virus-related. The no-vaxxers’ reasoning is motivated too. Specifically, they’re motivated to distrust public-health authorities who they’ve decided are a bunch of phony neurotics.

Да, да!.. Если смог понять так много, несоменно, сможет понять, что делать дальше. Осталось подумать совсем чуть-чуть! Правда, пока что этого не случилось: предлагает одни лишь бессмысленные глупости.
