 Of the 223,128 citizens of Itajaí considered for the study, a total of 159,561 subjects were included in the analysis: 113,845 (71.3%) regular ivermectin users and 45,716 (23.3%) non-users. Of these, 4,311 ivermectin users were infected, among which 4,197 were from the city of Itajaí (3.7% infection rate), and 3,034 non-users (from Itajaí) were infected (6.6% infection rate), with a 44% reduction in COVID-19 infection rate (risk ratio [RR], 0.56; 95% confidence interval (95% CI), 0.53-0.58; p

Posted in: Putin offers more talks with West to defuse Ukraine tensions See in context

If the Ukraine Gov continually disregards peace agreements with Russia by continually arming themselves then Russia will have little choice in taking the Russian areas of Ukraine and installing a new border.

When Kiev was shelling and bombing these people from the air Russia had to come in and secure these areas before.

Also the democratic sovereignty of these people should be respected. If they do not want to be part of Ukraine then so be it.

Posted in: Islamic State strikes from shadows in vulnerable Syria, Iraq See in context

This article is almost pure propaganda for foreign rebels in Syria. This prison uprising was mostly shut-down except for the hostages. Syria took care of the issue and most of these prisoners that did not escape were caught and/or killed. No one in Syria wants these iSiS, iSiL, "McCain's Army", Al-CIA-Eda "rebels" anymore and the American Bases in Syria should be shut down.

Posted in: Offshore wind farms could help capture carbon from air and store it long-term, saving money See in context

This CO2 capture makes little sense, but converting excess energy into hydrogen would work. Also shipping is getting away from bunker fuel and going to LNG and hybrid designs. =May have ships recharging off the shore in the future -that would definitely help with all the container ships sitting outside the Port of LA and Long Beach right now.

Eneti (NETi) and the "Jones Act" are the primary pivots on this. Search: "Capital Link Eneti"

Posted in: Coe discusses adding track meet in China; opposes diplomatic boycotts See in context

Track and Field has been growing as a sport especially with the new shoe tech allowing records to fall. Shoes have never been better especially at the consumer level. The common retail shoe is most likely better than a 80's running shoe (except Asics). Even some trail boots you can run in now.

Politics and track and field has never worked. If China has a growing running and racing culture it will continue to grow. -Maybe with less pollution it is growing.

Posted in: Japan entry controls to stay until more known about Omicron See in context

This Omicron variant is very catchy = if you are in a room with one your odds are very high of also getting it.

-You will see these next few weeks and months of how bad this situation is.

Japan Gov is making the perfect recommendations on this and will probably be updating info many times in the future. An temporary inconvenience to many, but you just plan around it.

Posted in: NFL could become trend-setter for COVID-19 testing policies See in context

This new omicron covid variant is very catchy. So much that they moved some NFL Sunday games to Monday and Tuesday for some teams.

Japan needs to stay on top of this covid variant to hopefully keep it out of Japan. = This will be a big issue this month and the next few. =Everyone will most likely catch this covid variant, -not the most dangerous, but the most contagious.

Just like when he brushed off honoring our Vets in France, Trump wouldn't have taken the time yesterday to show his appreciation, and the nation's appreciation, to those who fought and served, because he hates the military - it reminds him of all the qualities he lacks - dignity, integrity, courage....

-There was fog that day and they had to turn the helicopter back.

Posted in: Hints for fighting back against ballooning energy costs See in context

A thermal camera or phone/tablet add-on can really help you find the areas that are losing heat and seal your home better. $100+

Uniqlo sells thermal underwear that is exceptional.

Posted in: Weak yen morphs into new threat to Japan with surging energy costs See in context

Good time to be a farmer (except for high fertilizer costs) and/or have solar panels. Your heating and energy costs will still be much higher than now = have a winter plan in place to help keep your costs lower. Plastic film over windows etc, maybe a thermal camera to check for heat leaking out. =Seal your home or apartment up.

Posted in: GameStop mania severely tested market system, regulator says See in context

This article doesn't mention the RobinHood traders that were locked out of their accounts and/or had sales of their GameStop holdings without their knowledge. -Eventually their was a settlement on this.

When you short sell you may need to buy those shares back. =If no shares are available (GameStop) the price can go way up. There was lots of begging by hedgefunds to find or borrow GameStop shares. You even saw a billionaire hedge fund manager crying on CNBC or Yahoo finance --I have never seen that before.

-Biggest issue beside the RobinHood Sec violations is probably the naked shortselling.

Posted in: Japanese firms in China worry most about power shortage See in context

The power issues are real for most of China and companies already try to save energy during the peak energy day work times (work at night etc). Natural gas prices are also high and this will effect Japan this winter. Oil prices are going up. Worrisome since the China power shortage has been for months.

Many Japanese companies have already moved production away from China to other lower cost areas. =Not really that much of an issue.

EverGrande is not much of an issue since they actually have physical assets unlike a trading house like Lehman Brothers. Some of the company will need to be sold, recapitalized etc.

Posted in: How do you feel about targeted advertising online that shows ads for products and services that presumably meet your interests, based on your online search history and viewing habits? See in context

With YouTube (Google) and an Android phone (Google) your ads and preferences will sort of follow you. =The YouTube on my parents Roku has quite a few (odd) suggestions that are similar to mine. -Obviously YouTube knows when I am at my parents house. Mostly 80-90% different, but I am always surprised. Also these Smart TV's listen in on you so if you are always talking about "Toyota" etc = expect alot of direction that way or from competitors. -Even my parents noted that.

Ad placement (mostly Google) is much smarter/helpful now. =Used to be mostly 99% worthless ads, but now over half seem to make sense and 5-10% are interesting.
