Good day y'all
Covid global pandemic hit us hard and we are still not out of it. I found these articles interesting and feel free to add to the topic if interested. Like on how we can govern ourselves out of these crisis?
The world is making billions of Covid vaccine doses, so why is Africa not getting them?
In a shocking symbol of the west’s failure to honour its promise of equitable vaccine distribution, millions of Covid vaccines manufactured in Africa that should have saved the lives of Africans have been shipped to Europe in recent weeks. Indeed I have learned from African leaders that, this month and next, about 10m single-shot Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccines filled and finished at the Aspen factory in South Africa will be exported to Europe, at the very time that Africa is grappling with its deadliest wave of Covid-19 infections yet.Title: The Pandemic Is Showing Us How Capitalism Is Amazing, and Inadequate
Of the 4.7bn vaccines that have been distributed globally, more than 80% have gone to the richest G20 countries. The gap between rich and poor is now so wide that, while high-income countries have administered almost 100 doses for every 100 citizens, low-income countries have administered only 1.5 doses per 100.
To date, 496m vaccines have been administered across the European Union, which has a population of roughly 440 million people. Only 77.3m doses have been administered across Africa’s population, which is almost three times as large, at 1.3 billion people. And so, while 50% of European, US and UK adult populations have now been fully vaccinated, the figure for Africa is 1.8%, well behind India, which has only vaccinated 8% of its population.

President Joe Biden told visiting Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday that the United States will make a one-time donation of more than 17 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson (JNJ.N) vaccine to the African Union, the White House said.https://www.reuters.com/world/africa/us-donates-17-million-jj-doses-african-union-2021-10-14/
Biden said the 17 million doses will be in addition to 50 million the United States has already donated to the African Union.
The African Union, which has 55 member states and a combined population of over 1.3 billion people, has accused vaccine manufacturers of not giving its members fair access. Of 5.7 billion doses of coronavirus vaccines administered around the world by mid-September, only 2% had been in Africa.
The U.S. has donated and delivered more than 114 million doses of Covid vaccines to around 80 mostly developing nations across Asia, Africa and Latin America, the data showed. That's more than three times the 34 million that China has donated, according to the data.https://www.cnbc.com/2021/09/09/covid-us-is-the-worlds-largest-donor-of-vaccines-data-shows.html
China is the world's second-largest donor of Covid vaccines, while Japan came in third with around 23.3 million, data compiled by UNICEF showed.
A study by analytics firm Airfinity showed that rich countries have bought more Covid vaccines than they need. Airfinity projects that the U.S., European Union, the U.K., Canada and Japan will have a surplus of more than 1.2 billion doses in 2021 after inoculating all eligible people and administering booster shots.
Africa as a region has vaccinated just 5.5% of the population, the lowest globally, the data showed.

2021.10.16 16:54 Mkday013 Can I get a covid booster, flu shot, and hpv vaccine all at once?
Started hpv last year and honestly forgot to go back and get the third dose but I also wanted to get a flu shot and talk to my doctor about if a covid booster is needed. I’m leaning towards no on that one but on the off chance it’s recommended is it ok to get those at once?

2021.10.16 16:54 Mintyyeonjun Where to start?
Hey, new siege player here. I got the game not long ago so I could play it with my boyfriend ( he doesn’t know this ) however, I literally have no idea where to start. I’m not new to gaming but I almost never play first person shooters, the only other one I’ve played is overwatch but they’re kind of vastly different. Does anyone have any tips on where to start? Honestly I’ve tried watching videos and stuff but I feel like a lot of the terminology used is stuff they already expect you to know ( under the pretence that you’ve already played other similar shooters ) I’m all very new to this and any pointers as to what to focus on or how to familiarise myself would be awesome :))

2021.10.16 16:54 harleyb09 Spaniards, how do English-speaking foreigners sound to you when they speak Spanish?
I'm a Brit staying in Seville until December, and I've noticed that my accent seems to have gotten worse the more I speak Spanish. I don't know if it's just me being too critical but I worry that my accent in Spanish sounds really bad, definitely not like someone who is studying Spanish at university.
Most of the time people understand me which is at least some consolation, but I feel like my Spanish sounds really forced and not natural, which is something I'd like to avoid.

Let's answer this once and for all. Why do legendary and mythic guns have such an excellent hit registration but normal guns are just pea shooter?
