          • Meanwhile... waiting for Tier 5 to appear....

            Wider tier 4 curbs ‘inevitable’ as new strain spreads rapidly

            Pressure grows on PM after highest recorded number of positive results

            The only places in the UK mainland in tier 1 are Herefordshire and Cornwall.

                <<I was just on 280 Northbound between Magdalena and San Antonio exits. There are hundreds and hundreds of medical face masks all over the freeway. They must have fallen off of a truck.>>

                  Sentence reduced to 2 months: https://www.khou.com/article/news/he...7-001bf2fd7fba

                  On the surface of it, that still seems harsh ... until you look at it from the perspective where they had reduced their cases to zero in the summer and reopened all the schools and businesses, and now travelers into the islands are the only source of new cases. It only takes one tourist or returning resident breaking protocol to reignite a big spread across the nation.

                          You aren't the only who noticed....

                          I know. Even though this video is from @ 7 years ago, almost anytime I see a crowd scene I’m initially shocked if people aren’t wearing masks. COVID sucks!

                                Ye of little faith..

                                The researchers found that in videos it studied of this type of hunting session in the Red Sea near Israel and near Egypt, in 2018 and in 2019, octopuses were shown to engage in an “active displacement” of the fish during their hunt for food.

                                Multiple octopuses could be seen on various occasions performing “a swift, explosive motion with one arm directed at a specific fish partner, which we refer to as punching”, the report said.


                                Mr Sampaio said while the punching was sometimes done to allow the octopus access to prey it did not want the fish to have, at other times there seemed no logical reason apart from possibly keeping potentially mis­behaving fish in line so they could work better together in the long run.
