How the UK Aced Covid, sort of …

June 29, 2021

London yesterday. Spectators give a spontaneous standing ovation to Oxford Professor Sarah Gilbert (below), who was one of the scientists involved in developing the Astra-Zeneca vaccine and one of 100 key worker special guests on opening day. (The Age, 29 JUN, 2021)

Here are the Covid-19 Vaccination stats for the UK as of yesterday:

BBC, 29 JUN 2021

The UK recorded 22, 868 cases yesterday, but only 3 deaths.

The last time the UK recorded close to 23,000 cases was on 16 December 2020. That day, 613 deaths were announced. (The Age, 29 JUN 2021)

In 2019, in the UK, the total death toll was 616,014 or 1688 per day. Tragically but realistically elderly patients with multiple health issues are more likely to contract Covid and die from complications exacerbated by Covid-19 but not necessarily caused by the virus.

The death toll numbers are now encouragingly low in the UK despite the high infection rates from the highly contagious Covid Delta variant.

Godzilla vs Kong 2021: do the math! … USA Units

January 25, 2021

METRIC version here.

This is the teaser trailer for the Godzilla vs Kong movie out in MAY, 2021. The voiceover is a poem by UK poet W. B. Yeats called

The poem is a truly horrifying reflection on WW1.

What would happen if a middle school student grew as much as GODZILLA!!!!!!

Might need bigger chairs at school!!!

The problem for the 2021 film Godzilla vs Kong is that Kong has never been as big as Godzilla even in the obscure 1962 Japanese movie King Kong vs Godzilla (below).

So either The Zilla will have to shrink or Kong will have to grow for the 2021 film.  BUT HOW MUCH should Kong grow? Remember Kong was still a teenager in Kong Skull Island (2017) so he was still growing.
