  3. Apparently I have survived, I check the SMH obituary notices daily and have yet to appear. However, I have noticed something quite amazing (check the Sat SMH death notices) people in NSW actually die in alphabetical order. Also, don't believe what you read or hear, a friend of mine who is a baggage handler at Syd international terminal assures me that "case numbers are right down" And another thing while I'm at it, while essential shopping yesterday, I was intrigued by two large signs in the window of a very colourful variety store, one which read: STAY POSITIVE. I'm sure they mean

    The new Gladys presser template: Great news: vaccination rates up, gold standard More great news: the number of tests BTW: the number of infected people keeps going up but Even more good news: 400 plus was “disturbing”, but 1000 plus is not; it’s sorted: we changed the narrative (see above) Yes, a truckload was infectious in the community, and a few people died but hey, we looked into the crystal ball, and we’ve figured that we can open up soon, and go back to school And here is the medic now talking about the minor technicality of hospitalisat

    There is much being swept under the carpet or spun around these days, as FCB was saying. It was only 3 or 4 weeks ago Chant stood up in a press conf and said that numbers of around 200 were "deeply concerning and must come down". And yet here we are at the end of August with 1200+ cases and it seems that narrative around these numbers has been silenced, Chant and co have to sing from the same government hymn sheet eh.

FU 1 : Failure to secure vaccines early enough when given the chance....(...it's not a race.....fmd ! ) FU 2 : Failure of the quarantine regime that allowed a worker who broke no rules ( at the time ) by being unmasked and unvaccinated to move infected airline staff or infected people from OS. There was no mandate or law applying to his employer for employing proper health and safety protocols. There is now, but too little too late.

  14. Ok with this I have a bit of beef with. For me the states SHOULD NEVER be in charge of quarantine and is actually a federal responsibility because its o/s comming into the country. And again as much as I blame Gladys her rules were the last line in defence, Morrison was and is in control of quarantine and vaccines. Morrison has been very smart to shift blame to the states and take credit where he can as well. If there is one thing Gladys should have done I think is to improve the conditions of quarantine in hotels with air filters and air alarms to reduce risk like in Belgium. In hindsig

    Wilcannia average male life expectancy 35 years Distance to nearest fully featured hospital 550 km Household income half overall Australian average The pandemic has exposed the flaws in our society - east vs west sydney, salaried vs casual workers, public vs private schooling but the last few weeks have shined a light on the fact that there is an underclass living in 3rd world conditions in one of the richest nations in the world. We already have a pretty distinct caste system in place - vacc mandates will just add a little nuance to it.

    The NSW Premier’s gold medal double standard in action. 20 cases in guests who attended an illegal party in Maroubra, Sydney’s eastern suburbs, and 57 cases in their close contacts on August 14 and the police have not issued any fines or penalties. Yet there have been thousands of fines issued in southwest and western suburbs with thousands of extra police and ADF resources deployed there. https://www.smh.com.au/politics/nsw/eastern-suburbs-to-get-pfizer-priority-as-covid-19-cases-spread-in-record-numbers-20210829-p58mxc.html

I didn't expect it to last two days but I suppose I am getting older so no surprise there that I am more susceptible to such things. I managed to garner the energy earlier this afternoon to prepare a lamb casserole slow cooked meal with a shite load of veg. Spuds, onions, leeks, mushrooms, celery and fresh tomatoes, beef stock and canned crushed tomatoes. Some garlic and herbs as well. 30 mins prep and then nothing to do for 6 hours except the occasional stir. Oh, and lamb. It's been on for

    Helped by Smurf FCs handling of the cap. Corsica recently said: “I look at our current starting eleven and it’s the envy of the country.” Had the cap rules been applied to them they would not have been able to have that consistency over the years. What also made a difference was Arnie’s persistent interference from the sideline, his bullying of officials that remained unpunished over the years, and resulted into winning points. In contrast: Babbel’s red card at SCG. I am one of those who is kidding himself then. He is the manager I will not tolerate at WSW.

    She's ******* dumb 100%. Gold Standard Vaccination Program. (Yawn) Scomo shouldn't criticize the other states either, when it's his fault, we are where we are. And period all state premiers are playing childish games to be honest. Before this I wouldn't have known any other state premier other than Gladys. It's like they are all enjoying the power and their 5 mins of fame. Australia has never felt more disconnected and apart. We are in this together - is the most bullshit statement post initial lockdown.

    Hey Stokz, thanks for replying, it’s a bit forward of me to ask. The reason I asked was to make the point that often our points of view are driven by the lens we look through. Yours appears to be knowing some with a small adverse reaction, getting sick for a few days is common, and you didn’t mention whether you know many people with Covid. And so I imagine your perception of risk of Covid is low, so your perception of need for a vaccine is also low. For me, my job has been overrun with Covid issues.

    Pretty sure I saw Clapton on the front page of somewhere this morning. I don't think it's unfair we are a laughing stock.... there's no reason why, isolated as we are, and wealthy as we are, we shouldn't have been able to be in complete control of this., especially for our marginalised populations. That we aren't is worthy of some scorn.

    This is just my opinion but I get the feeling in NSW especially and Delta variant that the advice from the get go was hard lockdown and the NSW govt didn't want to after months of A) we're the Gold Standard B) Morrison praising NSW for not locking down....then for locking down ( lol ) C) Bad optics for them politically. after months and months of going after Victoria and Dan Andrews.

    So you live in a lockdown bubble for next 1-2 years, maybe indefinitely ? Not seeing anyone, Going into the office, Never going overseas, interstate ? etc? Or do you accept, living life carries some risk. There are all sorts of viruses in this world that could be deadly. Driving a car carries a risk, and yep if you do die in an accident, you are definitely one of the unlucky ones. Has that ever stopped you though. I think the world has realised you can not eliminate the virus. You do as much as can to be safe, but there is got to be a point when we accept some small risk.

    The Lowys went against the original recommendation and moved the club from West to East, put it in writing that there would not be a second Sydney team in Sydney for x amount of years, got shares in Smurf FC, and dressed them up in Hakoah colours. The team for all of Sydney, right? Thank goodness WSW is not like them.

  47. As a native Hungarian speaker, I can confirm that the category heading "Érkezőként felmerült" means that the players listed under it "were considered as potential arrivals [to the Hungarian club]", so you're correct. Interestingly, after Baccus's name, there is a comment in brackets "marad végül Ausztráliában 2022-ig" which translates to "[there were negotiations,] but will stay in Australia until 2022". Note that the other players in that category got more clear cut comments such as "was not approached", "was not given an offer" or "signed with another club". So what I read into th

A few years further back the world was going to come to an end because smoking was banned first on planes and then in pubs and restaurants. A few years ago the western world was going to come to an end because Merkel let a million Syrian refugees in Germany. All of these events are now non events.
