US buys up world stock of key Covid-19 drug remdesivir


https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/jun/30/us-buys-up-world-stock-of-key-covid-19-drug


Quote:
No other country will be able to buy remdesivir, which can help recovery from Covid-19, for next three months at least

The US has bought up virtually all the stocks for the next three months of one of the two drugs proven to work against Covid-19, leaving none for the UK, Europe or most of the rest of the world.

Experts and campaigners are alarmed both by the US unilateral action on remdesivir and the wider implications, for instance in the event of a vaccine becoming available. The Trump administration has already shown that it is prepared to outbid and outmanoeuvre all other countries to secure the medical supplies it needs for the US.

Superman's cape for sale - can I borrow some money please?

Christopher Reeve's Superman Cape Can Be Yours—For a Sky-High Price
Quote:
There’s been no shortage of memorabilia from the Superman film franchise starring Christopher Reeve, but a new item being offered by Julien’s Auctions could be considered a cut above other film props. It’s a cape worn by Reeve for sequences in the Superman movies, and it could fetch up to $40,000 at auction.




Quote:
The auction house is also offering a space suit from 1968’s 2001: A Space Odyssey ($200,000 to $300,000), a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am used for appearances as KITT from Knight Rider ($100,000 to $200,000), and hazmat suits worn by Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul in Breaking Bad ($500 to $2000).

I get in trouble when an amazon box turns up with a blu ray, or another usb cable, but a car transporter with KITT? Wow, to have that much disposable income.

RE: [VIDEO] What are you listening to now??? (Music recomendations)

this gets a lot of play on the radio



really like it, I think I first heard her on Jools Holland last year, listened to the Grey Area album a lot. Kind of funny hearing the "proper" version after being used to the radio edit. bit like when you hear the proper version of "Paris" by Kanye and Jay - Z after knowing the radio edit :O

Flu virus with 'pandemic potential' found in China
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-53218704

Quote:
So far, it hasn't posed a big threat, but Prof Kin-Chow Chang and colleagues who have been studying it, say it is one to keep an eye on.

The virus, which the researchers call G4 EA H1N1, can grow and multiply in the cells that line the human airways.

They found evidence of recent infection starting in people who worked in abattoirs and the swine industry in China.

Current flu vaccines do not appear to protect against it, although they could be adapted to do so if needed.
it never rains but it pours, these viruses are coming along like busses.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: 2019/2020

i saw the 'highlights'.

You took advantage of our sloppiness first half, probably should have done so a bit more.

Then second half was businesses as usual for us, great attacks until the goal is in sight then it's stage fright :(

Olympus quits camera business after 84 years

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-53165293

I think like Kodak, they assumed their name would be enough to survive on, and never really got the hang of making good digital cameras, and then with so many ppl happy to just use smart phones that was the end.

Margarita Pracatan: Cuban singer beloved of Clive James dies at 89

She can carry on entertaining Clive James now, a name I haven't heard in donkey's years (well actually probably heard it mentioned when Clive James died), but still remember watching her on Clive James, never quite sure what was going on :)

RE: So... what are you playing just now?

Played a bit of Marvel Strike Force over the weekend, good fun if you like these games. What has become painfully obvious is, is that the "best" game, is the one where you know/like the toons.

i.e. I'm not going to switch from Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes to MSF, or Disney Arena, not just because I'm so invested in my roster, but because I know/care about the toons more. I've collected some toons in Marvel and Disney, but I don't know who they are, so it's hard to "care" about them.

Also most annoyingly, you can tell that the Star Wars developers know they have the "Biggest" franchise, as there are certain aspects of the other games which are so much better, not just from what I've played but from some of the youtubers who comment, some "defecting" to cover non star wars games due to various soap opera style antics with the Star Wars developer Capital Games.

There's a few games which use the same engine for a fantasy game, but I can't see myself being interested in random dwarf/troll whatever against someone else.

it's bad enough using a team of 5 different Clone Troopers, trying to remember which one does what ;)

RE: The Premier league 2019/2020

I know you mean, it was like watching a friendly, or when you have the World Cup on in the initial group stages and you're watching 2 countries you have no knowledge of.

The empty stadium looks weird, i thought the crowd noise was ok, seems to go up and down at the right points, but is not "aggressive" enough at times.

I guess the person who presses the buttons for crowd noise is new to this as well, maybe it's like VAR, will take a while to work properly?

On the plus side, Pick is my new favourite channel, much better than Sky, BT or BBC ;)

Fontaines DC are certainly one of the better bands on R1 at the moment, really like this song, and the Later with Jools Holland version is nicely different:
