          I see LL shared an article over on the darkside regarding Israel’s new green badge policy: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/02/18/w...e=articleShare

          Without getting bogged down in the legality of how something like this could be applied, I’m curious of peoples opinions on it.

          On its face I understand the ethics around the greater good but a couple of pieces don’t sit well with me.

          If we look at this methodology as a global solution, it is clear that 3rd world countries will be those marginalised under this regime.
          Vaccines will be rolled out years quicker in 1st world countries creating further inequality.

          The other aspect is the data side which I’m not quite sure about.
          There is currently a bill being pushed to allow local authorities to identify the unvaccinated.

          It is one thing for governments or private institutions to choose to only allow certain facilities to be available to those green badged but another to make the circumstances of citizens known.

          In the Israeli example, clearly Palestinians are not being provided the vaccine at the same rate so not only are their opportunities restricted through no fault of their own but their position is public knowledge.
          Perhaps that is not intention but that may arise as a further means of marginalisation.

          Just initial thoughts but interested on how others might view it.

                thanks for this, really cool little docu. Had the video of warriors as a kid and watched it so many times.

                  Oh once mighty BBV perhaps you may impart some personal knowledge on shopping during lockdown.

                  I need to buy new Hiking boots . Any new fancy ones worth investing in plus does anywhere do click and collect or do I have to await delivery. I'd like my new boots ASAP.
                  I dedicate the purchase to balfejohn whose tip sent me on a bit of a heater

                                  BJ should take the chief tipster tag from GAB. Deserves it imo.

                                        I see what is happeneing here, every time I miss a tip it wins. When I back it they lose. You are all welcome.

                                        I assume DP is missing them too as for a man his size he could stop a runaway train.

                                          I could do a thesis about this

                                          Today I stuck a few quid on this one before I went out, came back and I don't know whether the price shortened and never got matched or I forgot to press something but no bet recorded... FFS!

                                            Bought a €14 Euromillions ticket last night.

                                            €14.

                                            Just checked it there and it's not a winner.

                                            How is that even possible?

                                                Did the same inspired by the Euromillions talk in here. Got an email to say I'd backed a winner.. Logged in to see I'd won €6 to book a cool €8 loss.

                                                  Apparently the WTO rules around IP are preventing the production of generic equivalents.

                                                  SK have decided to produce everything in-house but not sure if that’s production or IP too

                                                    Was actually thinking about this earlier. They really need to do way with these paltry €3 or €4 wins. Utterly pointless. Minimum prize should be €50.
