  1. ... just see how the criteria has changed for the Phuket sandbox.
  2. The Cambodian delegation should also visit this, Angkor Wat replica made in Legos!
  3. It seems all this checking provides a big incentive to make new child porn that can't be matched! Also most iPhone users have backup to iCloud for their photos. So in effect Apple is checking the photos on your phone.
  4. Apple is also running image recognition software on the phone. Messages uses on-device machine learning to analyze image attachments and determine if a photo is sexually explicit. https://www.apple.com/child-safety/

    The Covid-19 thread

    The 51% was the number for the initial COVID virus, not for the Delta strain. The numbers in Indonesia, that relied on Sinovac, show it is ineffective. In Thailand a doctor died from COVID. She was fully vaccinated with sinovac. https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/2164367/dosed-city-doctor-dies-from-covid-19
  6. Why else would Thailand continue to buy Sinovac. It is ineffective against Delta, that is the dominant strain in Thailand.

    The Covid-19 thread

    Since sinovac is ineffective against Delta, 6% is the wrong number. It is much less for effective vaccination.
  8. I can think of possible backhanders for vaccine contracts and other COVID related contracts.
  9. Brexit got rid of this red tape.

    Staying clear of the Sinovac is probably a good idea, since it is ineffective against Delta.
  11. The sandbox can not bring in the million tourists. Too many hoops to jump through for a 1 or 2 week holiday. The threat of being sent to an ASQ hotel at an additional $2K USD, as a close contact, is ever present. Plus the possible 2 week isolation on returning home means very few will take the risk.
  12. Another island is opening up on July 1st, Iceland! If you are vaccinated, then no tests! You can stay at any hotel and go have a drink in the bars. Plenty of people want to go to Iceland and see the erupting volcano.
