Short Takes For August 1, 2021.

A Quick Look At Some Top of Mind Topics.

  • Vaccinated People With Breakthrough Infections Can Spread The Delta Variant, CDC Says. How much different information from the CDC, the WHO, and the NIAID can we absorb?

Can we please get consensus on the facts and recommendations?
  • At The ‘Quarantine Hotel,’ Olympians Deal With Isolation And Shattered Dreams. Stop bitching about Simone Biles not competing. She is the world’s GOAT – if she is not in the right frame of mind and does not want to compete, that is her choice and her choice alone. Leave her alone a remember what she has accomplished. She is the Greatest Of All Time.

Enough said…
  • Vast majority of ICU patients with COVID-19 are unvaccinated, ABC News survey finds. This survey was done by ABC News and here is the detail: Of the 271 total COVID patients in the surveyed ICUs, 255 patients, or approximately 94%, were unvaccinated against COVID-19. Again, don’t shoot the messenger.
  • Report: Hawks to acquire Delon Wright as part of three-team trade with Celtics, Kings. The Atlanta Hawks came very close to making the NBA Finals…and with the addition of Delon Wright, and draft picks Jalen Johnson and Sharife Cooper, look for some more great things starting in the Fall.
  • Flight attendants receive defense training as incidents with violent passengers rise. Amazing as I thought that everyone would just be happy to be traveling by air again?

What is next for flight attendants?
  • Skirts. Bikini bottoms. Leotards. Ahead of Olympics, athletes call out sexist uniform practices. When, why and how do Olympic Committee authorities get to decide what women must wear in order to compete? This is the Olympic Games, not a runway in New York City’s fashion district.

What goes around comes around.

That’s It For The First Sunday Of August. Adios, pay it forward, be safe, and have a Funday Sunday.

One thought on “Short Takes For August 1, 2021.”

  1. Gotta think we ought to be thankful that our national health agencies keep up with a very fast moving, mutating and – shown to be – hardest to predict virus that has been seen in over a 100 years. It appears they are following the data once they have time to analyze. Looks like American public is not doing their part – please get vaccinated and encourage others to do same.
    Then we can probably put this behind us – if this nasty beast has no new tricks.
