    I get emails from family members about the latest cartel shootings, and I point out that at one point I lived a mile away from the Century 21 theater in Aurora and sometimes shopped at that King Soopers in Boulder before retiring here. They have mass shootings - we have Cartels.

    Really don't care where you lived, and I don't see where anyone else asked for your 2 pesos. :D

    What does it have to do with Mexico?  I will try to make my point..

    It is just as unsafe in many places in the USA but Canada doesn't post travel warnings about say Chicago where more innocent people are murdered in a month than the places in Mexico listed. Toronto has crime ridden areas, but the US Department of State has no Toronto travel warnings.  WHY?

    It is a huge coincidence that many of the times these "safety" travel alerts are posted by the US or Canada is shortly after the Mexican government offends them in some way. Check out AMLO's current try to change the rules regarding electricity and how the proposed changes could cost billions of dollars to Canadian and US companies invested in Mexico,  not to mention the violations to the TMEC agreement.   US Senators have sent a strong letter to AMLO.... Canada announces travel safety problems... Coincidence?   

    Nothing has substantially changed in a long time in the areas listed so why now??  Coincidence? or hit Mexico's huge tourism industry as punishment. 

    AMLO suddenly announces he is now open to negotiation on the proposed changes....  Coincidence?

    I believe that the persons responsible for these nonsensical dire warnings from the US and Canadian gummints know diddly squat about Mexico or both those countries have a covert department whose responsibility is to keep the tourist $'s domestically and to hell with whatever the function of the renamed NAFTA is.

    At least Mexicans and Canadians can cross by land into the USA again. Looking a a vax certificate should tale all of 30 seconds. Should be able to recognize a US, Canadian, or Mexican certificate in the first few minutes of the day. 

    Means millions of dollars in economy for the border cities on both sides.

    Silent protest?    Are you kidding?  Border agents get paid by the month, not by the number of vehicles they inspect. Makes absolutely no difference to them to look at a visa, or in the trunk.

    Obviously, they do not get paid by the car, if you have ever been in a line crossing where the line next to you passes 10 cars and you have not moved yet. I think they will just ask if you are fully vaccinated or not, and that is all for that. Everyone will pass.

    What is the reasoning for preventing people over 60 to enter ? Do we carry larger viruses ?  Do we carry more viruses ? If anything this is turning in to a "nanny state" situation. (Welcome to Socialism).

    People over 60 are no more likely to catch the virus than those under 60. The only difference is that IF they catch it, they have a greater chance of severe infection/death.

  7. Yet another variant, this one originating in Brazil, dubbed P.1, has shown up in the U.S., specifically in Minnesota. The individual had recently traveled to Brazil. Scientists seem even more concerned about this variant than they were about the South African variant. A study in the journal Science estimated that 76% of the population of Manaus, Brazil had already been infected, which should bring it close to herd immunity. But there are concerns that the P.1 variant is able to dodge the human immune system, although there isn’t much evidence to support that yet.

    The Brazil variant “is probably the one causing the most concern among people watching this,” said William Hanage, an epidemiologist at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health. “It is fair to say that P.1 is the object of very, very serious attention and concern among epidemiologists. We don’t know why it has been so successful in Manaus.”

  8. There’s good news and bad news on the vaccine front. The good news: Test results for Johnson & Johnson’s (JNJ) COVID-19 vaccine showed 72% effectiveness in the U.S., and Novavax (NVAX) said its vaccine was 90% effective in the U.K. While these are not up to the 95% standard of Pfizer’s (PFE) and Moderna’s (MRNA), they are still considered pretty good. Johnson & Johnson’s and Novavax’s vaccines won’t be available for distribution in the U.S. until April or later.

    The bad news: Scientists had suspected that the current vaccines are less effective against the South African virus variant, and now test results are showing how much less. Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine was only 57% effective against it, and Novavax’s was only 49% effective. The World Health Organization has suggested that 50% is the minimum level needed to combat the pandemic. The South African variant has been found in two cases in South Carolina recently.

    Mutations like the South African variant are not unexpected, but it is likely that booster shots or new vaccine designs will be needed to combat them. This means continued monitoring of the virus for future mutations, and possible continued vaccination campaigns. Moderna has already announced that it is designing a booster shot to its vaccine.

  9. My wife is the oldest of 14, but 4 is the most any of her brothers and sisters have. One young niece has 4 already and her young sister has 3 already. Both just as poor as can be, but get that free milk. No education, just like both parents. Sad.

    "Mexico eyes delivery of Russian Sputnik V vaccine next week

    FILE PHOTO: A medic of a regional hospital receives Russia's 'Sputnik-V' vaccine

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico is very close to signing a contract for Russia's Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine and the first shipment of around 200,000 doses could arrive next week, a Mexican official said on Tuesday.

    Juan Ferrer Aguilar, a senior health official, was speaking at a regular government news conference a day after President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador telephoned his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, and announced Russia would supply Mexico with 24 million doses over the next two months.

    Ferrer said the finishing touches were being put on the contract for the deal, and that it could be signed on Tuesday.

    Mexico is trying to secure as much vaccine supply as possible amid delays of some products and has said it plans to administer 7.4 million doses of Sputnik V through March.

    However, Mexican health regulators have not yet authorized the use of Sputnik V."

    I don't believe the AMLO Adm. has the money to buy much vaccine. That is why they are dragging their feet.

    What's his treatment, a talisman? 

    All these people who downplayed the seriousness of the virus, and especially those who shirked their duty to protect their constituents, should be barred from receiving any treatment at all.

    Exactly what one would expect from people like you. :(

    Agree, and be responsible to others who are more at risk than you are.     And avoid places like La Coveda.     

    It is the selfish ones who become asymptomatic carriers who are causing the majority of the increases out there.

    I think it is the ones doing socialization. They are young and healthy and are not afraid of getting the virus. Their job is not to look out for us, that is solely our job. You can't blame others if you get it, although you can try. :D

    Many times you can buy the parts at Autozone and Synthetic oil on sale at Costco.  Plugs, oil filter, air filter, gas filter, synthetic oil and maybe fuel injector cleaner, then find someone to change it all out.  Your car will be very happy and you can control price and quality of parts. 

    Or, do it yourself. I still enjoy doing those things myself, even at almost 80.

    To amplify my previous response:

    It is for poor Mexican citizens. You need an INE to register, so that rules out non citizens or foreigners.

     

    You must pass an eligibility interview. For example; If you have a Seguridad Social pension you are not eligible.

    I thought foreigners who became citizens got an INE, no? But father-in-law gets both ! Hummm!
