Posted in: Japan to receive 2nd shipment of Pfizer vaccine on Sunday See in context

 So they could come in bottles of 5 or the newer ones of 6 doses and then be stretched to 7 doses,

They come only in one size vials of 5 doses per with regular syringes and up to 6 with special ones

No, it must be divisible by 6. So 452790 is possible, but 452789 is not.

Actually it's possible. You could get that number if youre 1 special syringe short

The bad news is google will most probably be paying only for the news they want

The news services that they don't want, theyre forced to cut them off if they re not paying

Google needs the content so they are paying for it.

Facebook doesn't need the content and, of course, doesn't want to pay for it so they removed it from their system.

What's the problem with that?

Good going government. Probably going to hurt a lot more news services than help them.

Probably ok in case of FB but small companies could be really hurt with being cut off from google.

Some posters before said that in France's case a lot of small news services weren't able to reach an agreement with google.

Agree. All countries need to make sure all media companies are properly compensated for their content.

Good thing the sites can still be searched thru google.

But when the law is passed, the media companies that have not reached an agreement with google will probably be cut off from the search engine as well, else google would have to pay them.

Approaches of the two big tech are different but the ends will probably be similar, media companies have to strike an agreement with them or be totally cut off

Seems to me that this is a good move by fb, good business move, seizing the initiative before the expected passing of the law.

When the law is already in effect then those media outfts who want to be back in fb will negotiate with fb, on fb's terms.

I think media outfits would be happy to be back and will be happier if fb didnt charge them and would be most happy if fb actually pays them

 I can only find this clear statement that there has been no link found between people dying and the vaccines being the cause.

That is what @virusrex was trying to explain to you.

Im for checking and regulating power of big tech but this doesnt seem about power just money, and thisfeels like extortion to me.

But only with fb, with google they actually use the content and profit greatly off it so they should pay, which is what theyll be doing

It must be nice to use Facebook the way it used be: just feeds from your friends. None of the propaganda.

Made a quick peek at reddit this pm, fb users talking about the change seems happy about the change, but ive only read initial posts

Good thing google didnt go the same way, otherwise those looking for news wouldn't find them as easy also.

Anyway, business on part of FB, they probably concluded they will lose more by paying media outlets than

They got exactly what they wanted, which is for FB to pay for content they use.

Of course, this is not good for FB also

Waiting for the number of deaths, hopefully goes down again.

Number of cases staying under 500 is probably a best case scenario

Posted in: Facebook unfriends Australia: news sites go dark in content row See in context

Users share news links and this generates traffic to the news sites.

Why should FB pay for the shared links?

Actually, if anyone has to pay for the shared links, why does it have to be FB?

Why is Australia late also?

Posted in: Japan begins COVID-19 vaccinations amid supply worry See in context

I don't get the logic of vaccinating 3.7 million healthcare workers before moving on to the elderly and vulnerable. Most of those 3.7M healthcare workers aren't going to be having anything to do with Covid patients, whereas the old and vulnerable are much more at risk.

They take care of the sick and the infirmed.

That is reason enough to prioritize them.

Not to mention theyare at an increased risk of contracting communicable diseases because of the nature of their work.

Do you really think it's not logical to protect first a cancer doctor, for example, or the nurse or the aide who helps the doctor?

Health workers are always the first to get vaccinated.

People who should know exactly what theyre getting and getting into.

Yet many still dont want to get the vaccine.

They choose to give more weight to their fears, or to what they dont know and dont understand,

rather than to what these health professionals represent, by injecting the vaccine into their own bodies.

A first shipment of the Pfizer vaccine that arrived last Friday is enough for 40,000 doctors and nurses from 100 selected hospitals across the country, he said. Half will participate in a health study by keeping daily records of their condition for seven weeks after their first of two shots.

“I feel like these vaccines are the trump card in COVID-19 countermeasures. I am very relieved that the vaccine has finally arrived,” said the hospital's director,

Both a Pfizer Japan spokeswoman and a Japanese health ministry official declined to say whether the contract to supply Japan with 144 million doses of vaccine by the end of the year is based on six doses being taken from each vial.

Hopefully not but most probably.
