I was looking to quote someone there who predicted a Usyk win. Couldn't find one among the hindsight.

9 perfect strangers on Amazon Prime is very good, watched 3 of 5 episodes and really enjoying it.
Finished 9 perfect strangers (8 episodes) on Prime, very good show, really enjoyable.

Worth finishing then?

I think myself and the missus got five or six episodes into it, and just haven't been motivated to finish it.

It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either, at least that far in.
Nothing spectacular but good.

I've lost count of the amount of shows I've started and not finished, there's some amount of dung being produced these days, tempted to write a script myself.

Our boys did the business last night in the Armagh Minor Championship, wondering is there anybody in the know if St Paul"s plan to run their fantastic Ulster Minor Club tournament this year? (Assuming it would be U17)

I've lost faith in Covid death stats, I personally know of 4 people who have died in the past 3 weeks, 2 x Cancer, 1 x Alzhemiers and 1x (very) old age who've all went down as Covid stats and it was no more Covid that killed them.

Would they have died if they hadn't contracted Covid?
IMO yes. Deaths are recorded in NI as Covid deaths if you've had covid (at all) 28 days prior to death. Is that the same metric used for recording 'Covid' deaths in the US & ROI?

I've no idea what the medical practices for recording Covid deaths are in the US or Ireland.

But I do know that there are a multitude of illnesses which are routinely recorded as being responsible for the deaths of already medically vulnerable people which have never aroused this type of controversy.

Not having a go at you, but what's the point (and I've asked this here before)? Unless someone dies from something clearly completely unrelated like a gunshot or a parachute failing to open, then why would you discount the contribution of Covid, a very serious illness in many, particularly those already medically vulnerable? Regular old flu kills thousands of people every year who may be geriatric or immunocompromised already. Are we going to start discounting flu as a cause of death?
True.  I see the bigger picture, just lost a bit of faith after recent experiences (& it's not close family btw), also looking to know if NI's way of recording deaths is an outlier or standard practice. A quick Google of the US suggests a lot of Red v Blue nonsense (shock), can't find info on ROI

How did you get access to the cause of death of these people?
Friends and family of friends unfortunately, but a lovely question all the same, the sort you wouldn't say to a person's face, but hey you scored an Internet win

ROI weekly update. Another decent week

9245 cases (638 fewer cases than last week)
278 in hospital (37 fewer than a week ago)
63 in ICU  (4 more than last Sunday)
I've been watching the stats lately wondering why NI was having regular reports of daily single figure deaths and there were none from ROI, has it just been a case of them not being widely reported? I downloaded the ROI Covid tracker app to get the EU digi Vaccine Certificate & it gives you the death stats on it - 24 deaths last week.
How did you get on with this Benny? Is it up and running for Irish passport holders in the north to download the EU cert?
Yeah, check the holiday thread fior details

Perhaps 1% of people have Covid at any one time, maybe 3% in a month, and so you would expect perhaps 30-40 people to die each month with Covid, who perhaps were not killed by it. However, the rate in NI is that number of deaths each week because the likes of that DUP guy and other people in their 30s and 40s are dying.
As the Covid rate falls the stats become increasingly hard to follow, but I think NI is still above that level. Probably few enough are dying of Covid in the South.
Huge swathes of people (across the divide) in NI don't give a flying f**k about Covid. It's embarrassing, & sad that pigheadedness will be the end of a lot of people.

Is there any update on an EU Covid very for those vaccinated in NI but Irish passport holders??

There were articles about it early last week but nothing since.
Assuming that's Covid cert? To get the EU digi cert, If you have a NI online vaccine cert (or a paper version with QR code), you can already download the ROI Covid Tracker app and it will accept the NI cert if you scan it ( I got the daughter to scan mine, then I had to scan it again from the ROI app) uploaded no bother, I'm double app'd.

See Joshua 3/7 to beat Usyk (near 3/1 to win) next Saturday. Extremely dangerous opponent for AJ, fight to go the distance is 6/4 seems good value.
