    Cowboy Basketball (9-4, 3-4): With Cade and Walker out, Baylor Defeats the Pokes. Next up ISU on MONDAY

    I don't think its quarantine protocols, but other health protocols he has to clear for competition, which seems appropriate given the potential uncertainty with things like myocarditis

    Covid-19

    I'm a bit ambivalent about the news releases. The clinical trials I work on would never get press releases before a full manuscript was prepped, but I've never worked on anything anywhere near this scale of importance. If I were confident in the data, I'd be fine working with the science comms...

    Covid-19

    You are right that we can't tell anything really from that data because it's being focused on old and at risk people right now. It's also why we rely in clinical trial data. So far, deaths are reduced among those who get the vaccine vs those who don't and there's no evidence of an increase of...

    Covid-19

    Very interesting. I know it's not in the report, but any guesses on how it will perform across risk categories (e.g., age or with cardiovascular disease)? Given the anti inflammatory mechanisms, made me wonder.

    In short, yes. But, politics being politics they could claim victory in reaching 100 total even though their goal is clearly 100 plus what had been done previously.

    Covid-19

    Was that number supposed to be in the article? I'm not seeing it. Also, it's tough to know at this point if running out is an allotment issue by the feds or a manufacturing issue given somewhat conflicting reports.

    Covid-19

    Yes, nationally. Biden's goal is 100 million doses in 100 days, as the previous poster referenced, ergo 1 million per day. Edit: spotting some confusion in the last post, over the last week we have averaged 900k doses PER DAY.

    Covid-19

    Don't the feds store them after getting them from pfizer and Moderna? If so, it easily could be that things went so slowly that the feds stopped storing them and Pfizer has extra doses. It seems like doses are only part of the problem and the logistics have been a much bigger problem. We...

    Covid-19

    Nationwide declines have definitely started. How long they will be sustained and when/if we plateau or rise again is anyone's guess.

    Covid-19

    Related to this, I don't see how modeling doesn't support the expansion of testing through these devices. Would you use it in the ICU? No, but that's not the point of this kind of expansion. It's to make testing easier, literally less painful, and more accessible so that you massively expand...

    Covid-19

    From other articles I've seen on the topic, that's unfortunately not that high. I'll see if I can track down the articles on it, but the denial rate in the Rio Grande Valley (Edinburg and nearby towns) and El Paso was something like 40 or 50%. Unfortunately, those are also places that were...

    How about Baker yesterday? How'd he do?

    Lurked in this thread for a while because I started out loathing Baker. He was a completely classless a-hole in college and I wanted him to fail. That said, it seems like he grew up this season, though maybe I'm wrong. Johnny football flamed out spectacularly by now and Baker was #10 in QBR...

    Jeremy Pruitt fired for cause . Tennessee

    If I'm Matt Campbell, I'd rather be at Iowa State. Pruitt cheated a lot to go 3-7. Three things are possible and they aren't mutually exclusive: there's rampant cheating in the SEC (maybe all of college football), Pruitt is a terrible coach, and/or it's that hard to win at Tennessee. I'll...

    What will the republicans do?

    If it disrupts food supply and costs, it's a problem for all of us.

    Obamagate will be declassified!

    And what if I think the Russians had a favorite but Trump didn't collude? He openly invited help and guys like Manafort may have had a heads up about Wikileaks releases. That's different from trying to collaborate on some voter suppression scheme. I also think Russia prefers chaos and...

    What will the republicans do?

    I'm not sure it's that as much as it was a signature issue for Republicans that seems now obliterated. Republicans don't really have the high ground there, though maybe they will when they retake Congress in 2022 (just based on history that seems like a lock). Whether coincidence or a causal...

    It will help, but it may complicate things a lot (see link in above post) and they are apparently pretty far behind in production. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/13/health/covid-vaccine-johnson-johnson.html
