  1. One big question. Why the old interview where time has proven many of the opinions to be demonstrably incorrect? I'm not dismissing Prof Petrovsky's credentials, but quite possibly he would not now hold the same views as he did over 4 months ago, given what has happened since. With May a week away, "urgency of need" in Australia is a different issue to what it was in early January, particularly with global covid cases now rapidly increasing (including in regionally significant countries like India and PNG) and the emergence of numerous more infectious variants.

  2. Anyone doing - Saturday racing ?? I am in for the Standard. Totally unfit and overweight - worst I've been in 10 years. Just hoping to survive. Totally piss poor from me and I know it. This will be my first race since WS 70.3 in Nov 2019. So that means since 1989, I have missed doing a triathlon in 2009 (accident) and 2020. I am looking to change my covid attitude during this winter.A few running races then hit WS 70.3 in September (well, that's the plan anyway). FM

  3. I'd just ride from Nundah crit track heading towards Redcliffe alongside the freeway - I'd guess you could probably do 20-30 mins each way along there with no stops. Better than riding around on the roads when you want to do efforts

  4. Still, you can imagine the problem getting healthy people with little probability of catching covid to vaccinate when the media report every week that someone is in a serious condition from it and that some people are dying, few though they be. this is the issue

  5. Doing some digging into the guys background there’s also a question as to whether or not he is conflicted - that’s not to take away that he might have valid points but it questions motive. Previous statements from him show that he’s been unhappy not to receive Federal funding for the vaccine development work he’s doing and has therefore gone at a much slower pace. It therefore could suit him for AZ jab to be undermined potentially offering him a future funding opportunity (I am not suggesting this was his motive but he’s clearly a bit upset). Paul’s observations I also agree are well thought t

  6. I'm also no expert, only studying the basics to 2nd year level - barely on the same planet as the experts. My understanding is that the vaccines have high efficacy against the variants they were developed for, but obviously unknown efficacy against those they weren't developed for. Variants develop as mutations in the existing infected community, and obviously if you were able to magically obliterate all existing infection then you've also controlled new variants. It has already been stated multiple times by the vaccine developers that we may well end up needing regular booster

  7. Very well argued. one thing that I do hope that is continuing is the research and development of new vaccines. I just get the feeling that very few of the vaccines may be a complete success and although I am no expert, it does appear this virus seems to be mutating at an alarming rate I know the flu mutates pretty regularly, but the flu has been around for years

  8. An easy to interpret, yet authoritative and nuanced analysis of risk profiles of the AstraZeneca vaccine (aka Vaxzevria). Annex to Vaxzevria Art.5.3 - Visual risk contextualisation (europa.eu) Comparisons are by age group in relation to risk of hospitalisation, ICU admission and death, versus incidence of vaccine induced blood-clotting. It also takes into account covid infection rates (high/medium/low), which may vary from country to country, or within a country over time. When you hear of medical experts or politicians talking of risk profiles for a vaccine and a

  9. I rode the crit track to the airport & then into the city & back out past the crit track. No problems at all. The bike path is good

  13. I did not enter. I am still stuck overseas. WA's reduction in quarantine spots for the next month might delay my return further. I am currently in a country where Covid cases, in just a few months, have gone from a few cases to over a thousand a day, 5+ deaths a day, over flowing hospitals and sports stadiums turned into make shift hospitals. WA and Australia has become complacent when it comes to mask wearing, hand washing and social distancing. If Covid gets into the community it will spread fast. I fully support the use of lock downs and reducing the number of returning trave

  14. Last pair I bought from here and got a good price...I needed the wider fit and they had/have plenty of options. If you know your size 100% go online, if not, pay a bit extra for the instore fit. https://www.runningwarehouse.com.au/

  15. Yep pretty much sums up where I think things are at. It's no longer a topic of easy conversation because, like religion, people are locked in positions which are impossible to debate and where we don't absolutely know what the result of a given action is likely to be. Having said that a government gets elected to lead rather than study opinion polls (I know, I know, I live in a fantasy world) and make the right decisions not just the popular ones. They said they'd follow the science but everyone is now only doing that if politically it suits them with the exception of Gladys. She's the

  19. @xblane It's also been previously mentioned on here by a coach that if you are training properly for long course Tri then you will not really need to have a "recovery" workout of sorts. ✌️✌️👍Each session should allow you to backup the next day. I have been told that "you should be able to complete the session again" immediately after completing it. That's how you know its "Easy". ✌️✌️ Hopefully I remembered that info from the said coach correctly 🤔🤔✌️ Instead of going for solid, go easy and drip, drip, drip the endurance into your muscles and system✌️✌️ Keep

  23. haha, sure........ So I steered away from gravel as such, as I refined more what I wanted to do and what I'd need. I ended up with Tumbleweed prospector custom build. 27.5 x 3.8, Rohloff rear hub and dynamo front, Jones H bar. I don't have it yet, but it's built! just waiting for the sinewave USB box connection, and the right days off work to get down to Melbourne to collect it - should be the week after next!

  33. Covid made me really value my time. I've had the kids on my own for a year, I've realised how slack I used to be with time and letting work and friends who were not real friends consume my time. The upside of this being mainly an aerobic sport is you can just keep going at low numbers and still get benefit. As I'm single parenting, time in the garage with a podcast on or even old football matches and documentaries makes time ok, only every 20 metres from the kids.
