    They say it's "Invitational" ... but no clues on how to get a golden ticket.

    With the exception of one claim for an adverse reaction (Swine flu) those are all general concerns, and the latest is about July 2020. We now have the safety studies from two trials. I don't know what reports we will get from the…

    The Florida doctor who died of a condition that started 3 days after the vaccination had a rare platelet condition. I wonder whether this might be a PEG reaction. Googling PEG and Platelet gives lots of hits (albeit to PEG+XYZ…

    I saw a link to a tweet of a 'concerned virologist' pointing that a smaller dose / 1 dose could allow the virus to develop resistance.

    That is probably only because they have a four week gap vs 3 weeks. 33% more data. Confidence interval narrower.

    I don't know if either have been following the 1-shot people, or if they drop out totally.

    Pfizer :


    Efficacy against severe COVID-19 occurring after the first dose was 88.9% (95% CI 20.1, 99.7),
    with an estimated VE of 75.0% (95% CI -152.6, 99.5) (1 case in BNT162b2 group and 4 cases
    in placebo group) against severe…

    Wow ... I can almost see daylight on my work overload! After Saturday (a radio show) I'm almost free!

    But I don't think I'm going to dig deeper into Rossi history.

    A lot of this re-visiting/re-hashing derived from a question as to why *I* haven't written…

    Note that Rossi handed over the ecat to the "independent team". He may have been around, he may have helped tehm ... but any/all of them should have double/triple/quadruple checked the system.

    They are all (maybe except Levi) excellent professors and…

    That's where I got it .. zoomed in to the pixel level and couldn't see a current clamp (or a Bigfoot or a Loch Ness Monster ...) Ah well.

    I'd pay more attention to your posts if you stopped using words like "mafia" and "criminal" when most of us say "capitalist" and "ethical".

    It's certainly political and a trade-off --- is N*0.95 greater or smaller than…

    Note: g-factor has nothing to do with gravity! (My first thought) ... from the reddit post -- The g-factor is a fundamental property of a particle and represents the relationship between the particle's magnetic moment and angular momentum. ...

    Remember that a 30% efficacy was defined as a success. 95% was mind-boggling.
    I don't even know if a reduced-dose trial is even ethical now.
    An insider* told me that the race is usually over when the first candidate comes in.

    ISTR the intention was clear. He was making deals with various sources of funding, so plausible. I think UniBo even commented that a payment was due before any work could start. (This was before lenr-forum ... talked about on vortex, I think.)

    But then…

    The manual has examples of 3-phase 3-wire AND 3-phase 4-wire ... but that's for a 1-phase load hanging off one of the wires, which needs N.

    The 'indications' paper has two more shots of the instrument desk-top --- but I still can't see "current" wires…
