'Jessica then Tova'
That Vinny Eastwood is a piece of work...
stumbled on a live you tube of him soon after the Chchch massacre - he was crowing, and saying it was CGI, he was juggling about 12 conspiracy plates up in the air and all his 'followers' were egging each other on - a nest of vipers.
...a bewilderbeest running with fake gnus...
That Davies road address seems to be the MIT building and station (not that it’s numbered) – though it does seem to have other tenants – there is at least one law firm in the building – and both organisations (Say Nope to dope and FamFirst) have the same phone number…
David Farrier has done some sterling work in this area this year...
'Statues" - That's trigger word for me - I just go Bonzo!
Novel - it doesn't get much newer than that
this year sure has bolstered McKenna's 'Novelty theory'
Crown - for the virus and the TV show and a one party govt
I fail to see the relevance of your spurious cavil regarding The Lancet Public Health article.
The Lancet Public Health is one of many specialist titles under the umbrella of The Lancet and all are held to the same high standards - "as trusted sources of information, the Lancet journals set extremely high standards for publishing, and we are committed to ensuring that our editorial processes meet our standards of excellence. "
Ergo the content of The Lancet Public Health is in no way a diminished or somehow less reliable source of quality information or comment.
I am puzzled by why you would try to blatantly claim or infer such a thing.
Others may also be interested in this fine piece from the same source about Lessons from New Zealand's COVID-19 outbreak response
(NB the author Alexis Robert is affiliated with the Centre for Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, London - no alleged log-rolling there then)
and from another journal under the same umbrella - The Lancet Regional Health Western Pacific there is this fine analysis of NZ and Taiwan's responses and yes, naturally there are New Zealand and Taiwanese authors - one of which is Dr Lucy Telfar Barnard, a long time member of this parish I believe.
