  1. “The QuantiFERON Product portfolio also includes tests for SARS-CoV-2 T-Cell immune response, CMV and QuantiFERON Monitor used for transplant applications. LymeDetect® is the newest expansion to this portfolio leveraging innovative CD4/CD8 T cell technology to enable immune response detection.†https://www.selectscience.net/product-news/...in/?artID=54482
  2. I read the BJA article and was assured, not alarmed.
  3. Not so much as COVID fatigue, more like fatigue from all the bullsh1t from RightWing groups. They said trust us, we know better. They failed to deliver on that trust. By RW I mean in general, the system that we have lived under for the last few decades, where inequality is a consequence of the culture wars. I see 2020/21 as being the period when RW suffers a recall for exceeding their use by date, dinosaurs like Trump will be indicted and interred, then stuffed and mounted in a museum somewhere. For amusement. The ultimate reality show. It’s a period of major disruption and for the most part, it’s all good.
  4. Whilst I’m thinking about it, Woolies owns their network and it will be hard for competitors like Aldi and Coles (cheapa cheapa) to compete. Woolies strength will be determined by the quality of their supply chain.
  5. Obviously they are getting a positive response to their home delivery - I see staff filling orders and it’s very labour intensive so I’m guessing that for the future shopping will be online and delivered from automated centres without all the costs associated with large centres.
  6. There could be a case to answer ie directors did not act in good faith.
  7. Yes but lies (alternative facts, junk science, conspiracy theories etc etc) have become an acceptable diversion to a more rational political discourse - life’s too confronting and complicated and Trump is entertaining and that’s what they want
  8. Haseltine has some runs on the board so his opinion is worth considering. (The link may need you to subscribe but it’s a free subscription). He argues that there may never be a vaccine for COVID-19. Link
  9. G’day :-) The CEO of Merck has warned against haste in vaccine development, he says a more realistic date would be 2024. Link Should this be the case the world will be very different by 2024.

  11. (But the change ... 15 for the five year period but only 12% over it's lifetime ... hides a huge wobble, when investors got nervous as Macquarie had to morph it's model, post GFC) But their ability to adapt to a new environment is remarkable.

    I got tired of the 2nd guessing and dumped the lot and am shifting into an offshore investment fund. AMP have had enough rope and it’s not my job to make excuses for them - they may have some good assets but their management of those assets has not been to the shareholders benefit.
  13. It’s my belief that judging today’s market performance, or any days performance, against historical “record highs†is meaningless unless inflation is factored in. The much discussed pre gfc ASX200 high of 6,828 happened about 11.5 years ago. Allowing for inflation at 2.1% that value would be in excess of 8,500 - and that’s not including any effect from compounding. So talk of a correlating correction is very premature.
  14. The RC has damaged the perception of banking and the banks are exposed to a public loss of confidence. I doubt that this will sustain as the banks are in control of the money supply. At the end of the day, we all need money.
  15. TBH I find the bonus issue mystifying.
