  1. No, I haven't seen any movement on their part for the majority of airlines. It is looking like there will not be any tourists traveling here until 2022 with the way things are going now. Just when things were looking good the COVID cases go up.
  2. Finally they have arrived for us. COVID vaccines are rolling out in waves today. It’s about time. http://cnnphilippines.com/news/2021/3/1/COVID-19-vaccination-Philippines-PGH.html
  3. https://www.axios.com/fireeye-kevin-mandia-cyberattacks-solarwinds-ea717ece-4839-4b7f-b966-c9c6f5ad9d03.html Any future real-world conflict between the United States and an adversary like China or Russia will have direct impacts on regular Americans because of the risk of cyber attack, Kevin Mandia, CEO of cybersecurity company FireEye, tells "Axios on HBO." What they're saying: "The next conflict where the gloves come off in cyber, the American citizen will be dragged into it, whether they want to be or not. Period." "Apps won't work. Appliances may not work. People don't even know all the things they depend on. All of a sudden, the supply chain starts getting disrupted because computers don't work." Why he matters: As CEO of the company that was first to discover the massive SolarWinds hack, Mandia sits at the nexus of online security and attempts by criminals, mischief makers and foreign governments to break into computer systems around the world. Mandia warns that unclear rules or criteria for retaliation will lead to continued attacks that leave us "shocked but not surprised." "The problem is nobody knows what the rules are. There's no written document on what the rules are," he said. "And I don't know if you will get people to agree to rules on espionage because of the asymmetry where most countries can't beat us with tanks, can't beat us with airplanes. But in cyber, maybe that's where they can make investments and beat us." The bottom line: "It's as simple as if you can be hacked, you are hacked." "We're in an environment right now where we're playing goalie and there are slap shots coming at us every millisecond. And, by the way, blocking 99.99999999% of all the attacks means you're gonna get compromised everywhere."
  4. @Banjo Yeah I saw that. But the problem will be vaccinations are very slow to roll out world-wide. Places like the Philippines and Japan have yet to even give one shot to anybody. Also with these new variants the vaccines appear to not be working on them. The effectiveness on the new strains is extremely low as in this news article: https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2021/01/31/world/coronavirus-variants-vaccine-fears/
  5. It seems vaccines are rolling out now in most Western countries, while here it doesn’t look promising until towards the end of the year for the vaccine to get to all of us down to Cat C “Rest of Population”. Everyone over 60 will be in the A2 category so it should be by summer. I was reading this article today from the JPost and I just hope that doesn’t come to fruition. It basically says with the lack of vaccines for the developing world we will not see worldwide travel open up until 2024. Anyone else have some thoughts? https://www.jpost.com/health-science/coronavirus-in-israel-vaccination-doesnt-equal-liberation-657898
  6. Which ones have you seen go by the way side? This site will pick back up again once travel resumes.
