Iran has insisted its nuclear programme is to generate power and for other peaceful purposes. Intelligence agencies and the United Nations nuclear watchdog believe Iran once had a nuclear weapons programme that it halted. President Joe Biden’s administration is exploring ways to restore the 2015 nuclear deal that Iran signed with major world powers but that was abandoned in 2018 by former President Donald Trump, who restored sanctions..
Photograph: Alain Jocard/AFP/Getty ImagesThe vaccine offers as little as 10% protection against the Covid variant first seen in South Africa, researchers have suggested.Scientists who conducted a small scale trial of the vaccine’s efficacy said it showed very little protection against mild to moderate infection, though they expressed hope that in theory it would still offer significant protection against more serious infection.South Africa has halted the rollout of the jab, while a UK health minister indicated that an annual Covid jab could become the norm for many people as scientists work to stay a step ahead of the virus’s mutations.Prof Shabir Madhi from the University of the Witwatersrand, who led the trial, said that, while the study was small, it was designed to focus on determining whether or not the vaccine had at least 60% efficacy against Covid to any degree of severity.Efficacy 95% a week after the second shot. Pfizer says it is only 52% after the first dose but the UK’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) says this may rise to 90% after 21 days.The UK has ordered 40m doses and is rolling them out nowDoses Clinical trials involved two doses 21 days apart. May have up to 90% efficacy when given as a half dose followed by a full dose.
Janice is very ambitious, intelligent, tenacious, yet soft spoken and very nice! I was lucky enough to try most of the desserts on her menu and they are incredible. My fave was probably the water chocolate coral. She especially inspired by nature, forms such as rocks and coral and says that creating a dessert is all about of flavour, texture and temperature that order Below is an example of a sugar sculpture by Janice which strongly resembles coral or crystal formations.
In contrast, the data interpreting school views data, not as a sole object of inquiry but as an auxiliary means for interpreting reality, and stands for the processes that generate the data.I am not alone in this assessment. Leading researchers in the Science enterprise have come to realize that machine learning as it is currently practiced cannot yield the kind of understanding that intelligent decision making requires. However, what many fail to realize is that the transition from data fitting to data understanding involves more than a technology transfer; it entails a profound paradigm shift that is traumatic if not impossible.
