2:00PM Water Cooler 10/20/2021

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. Bird Song of the Day Media notes: “Trilling made by a chick which has just left the nest hollow for good and is taking its first flights. At least one if not both of the adults were present the entire time while the chick left the nest and climbed higher up the nest tree. Occasionally one of the adults would fly further afield only to return. The adults did not vocalise. The chick eventually flew into one of the nearby trees (paperbark).” * * * #COVID19...

2:00PM Water Cooler 10/19/2021

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. Bird Song of the Day * * * #COVID19 Patient readers, I have started to revise this section, partly to reduce my workload, but partly to focus more as an early warning, if that is possible. Hopefully I will have a variant tracker map soon. In the meantime, I added excess deaths. Vaccination by region: Coercion works? Or boosters? (I have also not said, because it’s too obvious, that if by Bubba we mean The South, then Bubba has done pretty well on vax.) 57%...

2:00PM Water Cooler 10/14/2021

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. Bird Song of the Day * * * #COVID19 Patient readers, I have started to revise this section, partly to reduce my workload, but partly to focus more as an early warning, if that is possible. Re workload: I eliminated charts for positivity, because I think private tests make those numbers useless. I cut back to a single hospitalization chart, because I think state-by-state data is more useful than a national aggregate. I retained vaccination (new administrations...

2:00PM Water Cooler 10/8/2021

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. Patient readers, this is my promised pantry clearout of Health Care and Biosphere links. Presumably anything important in politics today will take the form of a 5:00 horror, and so I will move on to a pantry clearout on Class Warfare. –lambert UPDATE Not all done, exactly, but enough for today. Bird Song of the Day For our Mauritius readers. * * * #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added these daily charts from 91-DIVOC. The data is the Johns Hopkins CSSE data....

Hopefully tomorrow I will be back in form. –lambert Bird Song of the Day Another duet! * * * #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added these daily charts from 91-DIVOC. The data is the Johns Hopkins CSSE data. Here is the site. I feel I’m engaging in a macabre form of tape-watching. I think it’s time to do some tinkering with the charts. I want to improve the...

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. Patient readers, because of the festivities on Capitol Hill, I have an enormous backlog of material on both health and the biosphere. I’ll have to do a pantry clearout shortly. Not today, I don’t think. –lambert Bird Song of the Day * * * #COVID19 At reader request, I’ve added these daily charts from 91-DIVOC.

By Lambert Strether of Corrente. Patient readers, I will have more under politics shortly.
