    If you do not want to drink your own urine you can buy it at basically all liquor stores. It is sold under the brand name “Heineken”.

    China's mass lockdowns left one woman in nightmare: Being stuck at blind date's home for a week
    https://www.businessinsider.co.za/l...an-stranded-blind-dates-home-four-days-2022-1
    13 Jan. 2022

    "A Chinese woman's blind date turned into a nightmare scenario when large swathes of her hometown of Zhengzhou were suddenly locked down, leaving her stranded at the man's home for a week.

    The 34-year-old with the surname Wang documented her experience in several videos on Douyin, China's version of TikTok. In the clips, Wang, who describes herself as an executive at an electronics company in Guangzhou, said that she was set up on a series of ten blind dates by her parents on a recent visit home.

    Matchmaking is common among more traditional families in China. Single women over 27, who are sometimes derogatorily referred to as "leftover women," are often considered particularly dire cases by parents.

    One of Wang's blind dates took an unexpectedly dramatic turn. The man invited her to his house to enjoy a home-cooked meal. But after districts in Zhengzhou city were suddenly locked down after 42 Covid-19 infections were reported, she found herself stranded with him.

    "He wanted to demonstrate his cooking skills and invited me over to his home for a meal. However, the Covid-19 pandemic caused a swift lockdown in the district we were in," Wang told Chinese media outlet The Paper on January 10.

    "During quarantine, apart from finding him so quiet that he's almost as mute as a wooden dummy, the guy is all right. He cooks, cleans, and works. Even though the food he makes isn't too great, he still is willing to cook. So that's okay, I guess," Wang added...

    As of January 12, Wang appears to be still stuck at the man's home... "

    No clear indication of when SA's lockdown will end as vaccine targets change – again
    https://www.businessinsider.co.za/when-will-south-africa-end-lockdown-with-vaccines-2022-1
    14 Jan. 2022
    • Just under 16 million people – or 40% of the total adult population – have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in South Africa.
    • South Africa's health department had initially hoped to reach at least 67% of adults by December 2021, but this target was later revised to March 2022.
    • Now, the deadline to reach herd immunity has been abandoned and, instead, age differentiated targets are being formalised.

    We set unrealistic targets (knowingly) and we boast about them. Then we obviously don’t achieve so we don’t seek efficient ways to improve our performance no, instead we change our targets keeping the same failing strategies….

    Emirates are suspending some flights to the US, apparently the 5G spectrum some providers there are wanting/going to be using interferes/may interfere with aircraft altimeters, something you don’t want as it’s one thing to be 1000 ft in the air, but if your altimeter is wrong you flying blind.

    Question: Must the booster be taken within a specific time period, after having had the 2nd shot?

    I could get my booster today or tomorrow, but for some reason it's not being offered in Yzerfontein, but in Darling. I can't bear the thought of going to Darling in this heat - I really don't do well in hot weather. Although Darling is only a 20 minute drive away, it is much hotter than Yzer. I'd rather wait until it's offered again, by which time the weather will be cooler.
