Re: CDC release study on masks during covid. Efficacy is 0.5-1.9 percent.

You’re not that naive. The parents were trying to score points by generating publicity against the “no mask” mandate, and the restaurant manager obliged them. He's tired of being told what to do by, you know, politics in the country, and so you're going to need to take the mask off," Wester sai...

Re: FAA IR to TC IR Conversion TC Problem - Help!

Most people who get an FAA licence from having a TC one don’t get the “based on a foreign licence” clause. The normal procedure between FAA and TC is via the bilateral agreement, called the IPL, which grants you a complete standalone licence in the other country. Does your FAA licence actually say “...

Re: In the ICUs, the unvaccinated are silent.

These health reasons may be why they didn’t chance the jab. Approximately 1% of the population has a legitimate medical reason to not get vaccinated. For anyone not part of that ~1%, "health reasons" is not why they didn't get vaccinated. Where did you get the 1% figure? I don’t think it’...

Re: Auto Thrust or Auto Throttle?

If it helps, only gasoline powered piston engines with a carburettor have a throttle - it’s the plate in the carb that’s angled to a greater or lesser degree across the exit of the Venturi and restricts the air/fuel mixture flow out of the carburettor to control the power the engine develops. It’s n...

Re: WHO children should NOT be vaccinated for Covid

I’ll stick my neck out and say I don’t think vaccinations for under-12s will be required (eg for school) or necessarily widely recommended.

Re: WHO children should NOT be vaccinated for Covid

Every single media outlet reported the child had significant underlying health conditions, and that he or she contracted COVID not in a childcare or school setting. As the second sentence in the report, usually. I’m not sure what evidence you could ask for that nobody is trying to leverage anything....

Re: In the ICUs, the unvaccinated are silent.

What suppression? Not happening. At least not in the western world and in regards to anything COVID. I don't know if you're aware, but we just had a bunch of protests outside hospitals. If there was to be suppression of opposing views, I'd like to think those assholes would be the first to go. Ah, ...

Why aren't simple, cheap methods which help, which you can't deny as factual, Sure we can. Because there's no evidence they help. And yes, we can be wrong.

Re: Ivermectin-Disinformation of the century

Science and realty isn't dictated by consensus, it isn't driven by dogma. We're going back to the dark ages the way people are(n't) thinking. You're taking a very 21st century view about what science is, and who does it. For all of mankind's progress, science has been "done" by a few indi...

I wouldn't have thought I would need to spell it out. Your post blames politicians, and media: you thereby make it a political issue. You try to summarize scientific data that you know full well is not widely accepted, and is full of nuance, as simple and settled, quoting only a brief conclusion tha...

Re: Ivermectin-Disinformation of the century

It is really disheartening to see how easily most of the population has become politicized over science and medicine. Our politicians and media should be ashamed of themselves for their role in this, as should we for allowing ourselves to be so easily manipulated. These covid discussions seem to br...

Re: Cost for Private Pilots Licence in Canada for International Students

So, the SPP can only be used - for training flights , under the direction of an instructor (i.e. the instructor directs you what to do) and if you need the PIC experience. It would be mighty hard though for anyone to prove a certain student did *not* need the extra PIC experience. Perhaps in this c...
