Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

Is UK requiring written consent. maybe its just the way the medical system in Oz is set up to work. Sort of makes sense that no one is holding your arm down forcing the needle in. In respect to China, lets assume the Sinovac works similar ways to the 4 or 5 'western' ones. There is a technical thoug...

Re: CLIMATE CHANGE AND GLOBAL WARMING

I can understand why scientists are worried about increasing numbers of forests fires. Geologists and palaeontologists are well aware of how in the past when the climate warmed it reached a point where forest fires contributed to a runaway rise in temperature - forests burn away in days but take hu...

How about this for an unintended consequence of electric cars. Obviously we will burn less fossil fuel and therefore less carbon dioxide.

When I started my business in the early 1990s by law all my paperwork, promo material etc had to have a street address.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid19) Corner

there were a few 'bumps in the road' on the UK AZ supplies, a mix of batch testing and approval, glass receptacles production for fill and finish, batch brewing and movement. Nothing in itself that became an actual problem, but could have done if resolution had not been timely.
