@anthracite Yeesh. Had no idea it was getting that bad. Yeah I'll be moving ship but not 100% made up my mind where yet cause the number of "instances run by people I know and personally trust count" (of which yours is one) is hilariously high.
@Ratttz I mean, considering the brain trick at work you might not even need to actually have like, those exact componets butj ust some little ritual that says "I have completed Work" should do the trick.
covid-19 vaccine adverse reaction details, Oxford candidate, reason for pausing phase three trials
Serious Adverse Event Time | In the Pipeline https://blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline/archives/2020/09/09/serious-adverse-event-time
So it looks like the adverse reaction was indeed very adverse, and is likely from the vaccine but could be from other things.
I really don't have enough information or background knowledge to say how this will affect development of this vaccine, or other virus-based vaccines. Virus-based vaccines are one of the most popular frontrunners, with (from memory) one of the US, the oxford, the Russian, and the canadian/chinese effort all being based on it. However a lot of them are using different viruses which could have different safety profiles, and we do have DNA and RNA based ones at similar levels of development, so if it turns out that these viral vectors are not useful we are not screwed, and may not even be delayed in when we get a working vaccine.

questions about meditation group
@DialMforMara . So SKY meditation is a front for Ravi Shankar's Art of Living Foundation who is one of your standard heavily commercialized (see: paid workshops) transcendental meditation cults. Their biggest claim to fame in the US is a first amendment lawsuit against some anonymous blogger ex-employees that got settled out of court, by trying to claim the information these people posted were proprietary trade secrets. The EFF got involved, it was a whole thing.
questions about meditation group
TLDR version: Yes, they're a cult and on a scale of cult benign-ness 1-10 where 1 is "Parrotheads" and 10 is "Scientology" they're like a 4. Haven't murdered anyone or tried to infiltrate the government but still kinda shitty.
Longer version: Next post.
