  1. Congratulations! A fabulous new website that I know took a lot of work to do. I love the metric and wide screen options. Scaling is easy using your computers zoom settings for those who have vision issues. On my computer I just need to move 2 finger's on my touch pad to zoom in or out - but everyone is different. So, most browsers have a drop down menu of options. Look for 3 horizontal bars, sometimes 3 dots stacked vertically, just click there and select you zoom option on the drop down menu. Thanks for doing this weather report !
  2. Well, I must say. I have had a different experience with Totalplay. I tried to sign up yesterday and have since got caught in a loop with their call back service to confirm my order. Telcel says they are blocking the calls, so I cannot answer them. Totalplay has responded to this by having a bot continuously call me back. 119 calls so far in under 24 hours, plus the 119 messages from Telcel saying I missed the call. Oy vay! I have called Totalplay but got caught in an answering machine loop. After the 10th try I finally reached a human who said they could not stop it. I had to get it cancelled through the salesperson (at Soriana) who I signed up with! Called her and She has since cancelled my request but the calls are still coming. What a nightmare!!!!! I am now off to Telcel to see if they can fix this. Any suggestions anyone?
  3. ALL vaccines will need to be redone, annually. In time it will become a component of our usual annual flu shots. If you received the Sinovac shot and are concerned or frightened by what the rumour mongers are spreading around, all you have to do is get an antibody test in a few weeks to see if you have the antibodies. If you do. You are protected. It is really that simple.
  4. Not quite true, every country varies. Canada is not accepting ANY proof of vaccination. It is simply too early in the vaccination process, and governments tend to move slowly. It is always safer to get your information direct from source. It can prevent a lot of confusion. Here are Canada's Guidelines at this link, an excerpt follows. To find the rules for your own country, just Google "Covid travel restrictions for ...." (add your country name). https://travel.gc.ca/travel-covid/travel-restrictions/flying-canada-checklist/covid-19-testing-travellers-coming-into-canada EXCERPT Pre-entry test requirements All travellers 5 years of age or older, regardless of citizenship, must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result. You don't require a test to fly within Canada. At this time, proof of having a vaccine does not replace a valid test result. You must: take the test within 72 hours of the scheduled departure time of your flight to Canada if you have a connecting flight: the test must be conducted within 72 hours of the scheduled departure time of your last direct flight to Canada you may need to schedule the test in your transit city provide one of the accepted types of tests, not an antigen test keep proof of your test results for the 14-day period that begins on the day you enter Canada Airlines will refuse boarding to travellers who are unable to provide a valid molecular test result. These tests are considered acceptable molecular tests: Exempt from pre-arrival testing for travellers arriving by land PCR - Polymerase chain reaction RT-PCR – reverse transcription real time PCR Quantitative PCR (qPCR) Nucleic acid test (NAT) or Nucleic acid amplification test (NAATs) Reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) Isothermal amplification Droplet digital PCR or digital droplet PCR (ddPCR) RNA (Ribonucleic acid) Ct (cycle threshold) CRISPR Sequencing Next generational sequencing (NGS) or whole genome sequencing (WGS) Oxford Nanopore sequencing (LamPORE) Detection of the N gene Detection of Orf1a/b Detection of the S gene Detection of the E gene Detection of the RdRp gene These tests use methods such as a nasopharyngeal (NP) swab, nose swab, or saliva sample. At this time, proof of having a vaccine will not replace a negative test result. NOTE: ALWAYS CHECK FOR CHANGES TO THESE REQUIREMENTS BEFORE YOU TRAVEL. THIS IS A DYNAMIC SITUATION SO THE RULES WILL CHANGE AS THE VACCINATION PROCESS PROGRESSES.
  5. You can follow sun activity here: https://spaceweathernews.com/ and here https://www.swpc.noaa.gov/products/alerts-watches-and-warnings
  6. I am rejuvenating this old thread to get updated info. This is now end of September, 2020. Has anyone heard if he is still working? He came to my house in early September where he confirmed Widesky's answer. I placed an order with him and then he fell off the map. This is so uncharacteristic of his usual reliability that I am concerned something has happened to him. Has anyone heard from him this month?
  7. Get the geological report on this part of the highway from the city. You will understand the problem and understand why you should not buy a house in that area.
  8. For those who think they are only reporting the deaths, this is not actually true. All you need to do is some math. Deduct the number of deaths from total contagions, and the remainder is how many people have recovered plus active cases. Sadly, they have stopped reporting active cases so we can no longer deduct that number to find all recovered cases. As for those who enjoy the percentages game, here is what 1% death rate looks like. You can judge for yourselves what this means against actual death rates and if that is acceptable to you.
  9. Some good advice above. If you do call the Covid hotline, be prepared with recent temperature reading and a list of all symptoms. You pretty much have tick all the boxes before they will send someone out to test you.
  10. I believe it's called "La Chamba". Essentially a make work concept.
  11. Its marches against the Mexican version of George Floyd where a young man was beaten and murdered by police in Ixtlahuacan de Membrillos for not wearing a face mask. There are organized protests over several days about it (s best to avoid GDL right now), at least one that did become violent. I am not sure this will get the same coverage internationally as the George Floyd case has been getting. Maybe someone else can fill in the details but there is a US consulate advisory about it.
  12. Lol, while you are at it, why not get Superlake to stop price gouging too. You will be just as successful.
  13. Ian Greenwood, so you say you have been tossed from 4 times just this week, and are now being blocked from your usual mountain trails, mind if I ask you why are failing to receive this message? Lol. is it plaque build up in those old arteries of yours?
  14. This link is put out by the Boston and Harvard medical centres. It is an effort to track potential cases of Covid, especially in areas where there is little to no testing. Please help them help us. By following this site you will see how many in your area have reported, who are positive, negative, feeling fine or feeling ill, etc. PLEASE, report only potential covid related illnesses! This works for ALL of North AMerica (Canada, USA, Mexico). https://covidnearyou.org/?fbclid=IwAR1051J9NhaF5eovG2eEr2isSfnKpPkkYFXGejfeXfQm2XTphtl_NneTMmA#!/ I am only posting this as a public service and will not be following this thread.
