Beautiful Leigh Sales piece on unhinged Twitterati , it is fascinating to hear the ABC reporters are bullied and harassed by extreme left and I stand with Dan types. ABC survey has Twitter users about the same as reddit at 6%, best thing media and journalists can do is stop reporting twitter reactions as though they matter. abc.net.au/news/2021-09-14/twi

Found via Albrechtsen article lamenting the drowning out of healthy debate due extremists on the fringe

Barnet were instrumental in Vic lockdown policy, they seem to be tuning their model to assume lockdowns are the solution
Rrate in Melb was higher than NSW while under full lockdown
They comment 30% of households had had guests in the data eval period.
Fairly certain their model doesn't account for the 20+ kids playing in the park all day
They are modelling on the assumption their previous models are valid.
If curfew, house arrest and 80%+ fully Vax still sees hospital overrun. Model is broken

The conclusion Barnet reached is
a high chance of hospitals being overrun if lockdown eased at 80% 2 dose Vax. With stated limitations in certainty due to effect of lack of testing & contact tracing on case numbers..
Even at 80% or 95% vaccinated, is VIC gov going to track, trace, isolate every case? For how long?
Every other country is tracking hospital/icu/deaths not counting individual cases.

VIC is still pursuing an elimination strategy into 2022..


According to the Burnet VIC would kill 964 people if we relax lockdowns before Christmas, even with current target dates for 70/80% vaccination. Modelling says peak of 1960 cases (rolling 7 day average), 24% chance hospitals overrun
Why? Uses bad or old data used for UK lockdowns. Very pessimistic on CFR /vax

Compare: NSW has lost 128 people to covid since June 16th (based on latest weekly summary) mostly the elderly. Daily cases of 1303 (9124/7)
Can I move to NSW?

Didn't we go through this nonsense last year.. At least the original doom models had the excuse of limited data. 18 months in to be that pessimistic is just deliberate scare mongering.

Holy Sh** #Microsoft has installed the simplest backdoor in your #Linux VMs without you knowing about it.

Microsoft Azure silently install management agents on your Linux VMs without an auto update mechanism, so you have to update manually but you don't know they exist because you didn't install them? 🤔

Simply remove the auth header and you are root. Remotely on all machines.🤯
