Letter obtained by CNN shows FDA defended new monkeypox vaccine strategy to vaccine maker

quote [ The FDA also detailed other options that the agency had considered. But the use of alternative vaccines to prevent monkeypox "was determined to be either impractical or inadvisable at this time," according to the letter. Specifically, the ACAM2000 vaccine, which is FDA approved for prevention of smallpox, "may not be appropriate now for a potentially immunocompromised population," the letter said. ]

A potentially immunocompromised population? Huh. I wonder how that happened?

The Car-Replacement Bicycle (the bakfiets)

quote [ When we were moving back to Canada, we knew we'd need a car, but we couldn't afford one after the move. Thankfully, we found an electric bakfiets, and not only did it take the place of a car, it also saved us thousands of dollars in the process. ]

Kinda want one now. If I didn't have my cat I might just settle on a bike and a tent instead of my van.
