Covid: Sajid Javid defends ‘swift action’ on Omicron variant – BBC News

Face masks will be compulsory in shops and on public transport in England, and UK arrivals are expected to have to take PCR tests from Tuesday in response to the new Omicron variant.

Health Secretary Sajid Javid said the measures would help to ensure that people can “enjoy Christmas with our families”.

Mr Javid said the government had acted “swiftly” and “in a proportionate way”.

But a doctor who treated the variant said there had been unnecessary panic.

Meanwhile, adults aged 18 and over “will have an offer of a booster earlier than we had previously envisaged”, the deputy chairman of the Joint Committee on Vaccines and Immunisation told BBC Radio 4’s Broadcasting House.

Professor Anthony Harnden said: “There is a very good, strong argument for raising the antibody level in the whole of the community. So accelerating the booster programme both by extending the age range and by reducing the interval between the second dose and the booster dose, would be a sensible strategy.”

The foundation currently holds the hunting rights to more than 14,000-square-miles of the B.C. coast – an area larger than the US State of Maryland.

SHUKAR AND SCIENCE

Timeless Mind

Shukar is a word from the Punjabi language. It is thankfulness, gratitude. When we say it to the Universe, ‘shukar’ recognises the eternal bond of pure love between the Omnipotence and us. An unconditional divinity.

It is not just an act of saying ‘thank you.’ Shukar is something which reforms our consciousness. Reconfigures it.

Research in the field of positive psychology indicates that just being grateful results in better health, enhanced well- being, optimism and positive changes in neural pathways. Some studies even indicate an increase in grey matter.

Modern science has researched much into this aspect. It has found that a consciousness of gratitude enhances mental health, fosters meaningful relationships, helps in catharsis and improves happiness quotient. Studies have shown hugely improved performance in athletes who regularly practice gratitude.

Research has also found that cardiac patients who kept Shukar (gratitude) journals for eight weeks reported better…

Robinsonii 2.0

Vivaldi translation of introduction: Tulum, 2019

On the Mayan Riviera, the sand is as fine as gold dust and greedy algae take over the shore.

ore de drum

Tulum, 2019

Pe Riviera Maya, nisipul e fin ca un praf de aur și algele lacome iau în stăpânire țărmul.

Încă din secolul 6, micul port de pescari Tulum este menționat ca posibilă etapă pentru călători.

Mayașii, care se îndeletniceau pe-atunci cu pescuit, comerț maritim și viață religioasă, au trasformat treptat această neînsemnată așezare bântuită, după spusele lor, de vibrații magice, într-un înalt loc de spiritualitate.

Prin 1200, și-a luat avânt într-o perioadă tulbure marcată de lupta pentru influență între triburi, dar îi pierdem urma la 75 de ani după cucerirea spaniolă, printre ultimele cetăți Maya atestate documentar.

Pe o fâșie de șase kilometri de-a lungul Mării Caraibelor, mărginită de jungla tropicală, dezvoltatori de turism americani, englezi, canadieni au defrișat liziera vegetației de pe țărmul mării ca să construiască hoteluri, baruri, restaurante, magazine etno.

Plaja astfel privatizată și îngustată găzduiește în fiecare seară nunți și petreceri felurite.

Dincolo de ele…

Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm | the odd icy shards of ambivalence (226) — SONGNGUTAITRAM

I was born 1971, Phu Nhuan, Saigon, Vietnam. My family and I were a part of the first exodus of boat people after the Vietnam war. In March 1981, we settled in Sydney, Australia. I graduated with a bachelor of Pharmacy at the University of Sydney. I have been translating Vietnamese literature for the past five years in my search to better understand my mother’s language and culture. My translations have been shared through blogging over the past year. I am still a registered pharmacist practicing in Western Sydney. I hope to continue translating, and continue to share Vietnamese art and literature, beyond borders on SONGNGUTAITRAM. (July 2021)
