Finished reading: A Whole Life by Robert Seethaler 📚 Loved it.
Vaccine rollout going well now in Ireland. 84% of adults with at least one dose. 69.2% of adults fully vaccinated.
The message has finally got through. There is so much more that they can do to inform and educate.
By law, companies should be required to have their algorithms audited, just as their financials have to be audited. It’s time to end the unfettered power of algorithms specifically designed for one purpose only (revenue growth) without any regard for the common good or for any harms the algorithm may cause.
Excellent tally sheet for the count today. Looks like Ivana Bacik will be elected. Wondering if green transfers will push her over the quota.
Horrified by the UK Government decision.
This is the right decision. There will be a lot of outrage, but it’s the correct thing to do. We need to navigate our way out of this very carefully. The potential impact of delta variant given our current level of vaccinations should not be underestimated. The UK is not making it any easier for us given their decision to open up completely on the 19th July.
It’s tough for politicians in Government making these decisions and they need our support.
We spent some hours in Sligo town last week during a break in the North West.
The town has so much potential. The experience as a visitor though, would be soooo much better if all streets within one kilometre of the center were closed to traffic. A lot of the center was constantly full of idling cars stuck in traffic, mostly diesel, filling the air with toxic fumes.
We found it difficult enough at times to even cross streets.
Get traffic out of the center, provide community electric buses like we’ve seen in Bayonne and bike lanes for people to get around. It’s time to get rid of cars in these kinds of spaces.
Go Johnny go.
Good that EU countries are taking these actions. Lots more work to do.
Really good piece on BJ. Enjoyed it.
