    one thing we have learnt is that children are certainly, in the five to 15 brackets from school to early years, are minimally involved in the epidemiology of this virus. They are probably less susceptible and vanishingly unlikely to end up in hospital or to die from it.
    there is increasing evidence that they rarely transmit. For example, it is extremely difficult to find any instance anywhere in the world a single example of a child transmitting to a teacher in school. There may have been one in australia but it is incredibly rare.

    Yeah. I once listened entranced as a pair of "regular" school teachers, one teaching 5-6-year-olds and one teaching 15-16-year-olds, locked horror-story horns with a special-education teacher. There was a lot of dismissive "Ha!" and "Ho!" going on (and at one point a comparison of scars), but I came away with no clear winner.

    I don't know how Music and Art teacher do it in a special education setting. It's sort of insane the amount they have to know.

    There's also a Space Adventures Crew Dragon mission for a few days in orbit.
    I can't help but think of this:

    In Soviet Russia, vaccine tests you.

    From the Broken Cable Damages Arecibo thread.

    The one in Doctor was suppose to be the Jodrell Telescope, but they couldn't afford it, The Lovell telescope is an optical telescope.
