  1. I am 52 and it’s hard to find peers that don’t have inactive children. I have many friends who have divorced recently and it seems inevitable that at least one of the spouses falls away. I have noticed at least two very active families from past wards who very publicly left the church. In my ward, we have many that went inactive during covid. The primary shrunk from 80 kids to 50.
  2. Approves for over 65 and at risk groups.
  3. Just an anecdotal story. My step sister who has had covid and been vaccinated has covid again and has symptoms. They should stay mild but Delta is very contagious.
  4. FDA panel rejects booster shots in a 16-2 vote. https://apnews.com/article/fda-panel-rejects-widespread-pfizer-booster-shots-1cd1cf6a5c5c02b63f8a7324807a59f1
  5. I sent the temple questions home with parents to prepare their child for their first interviews. An 11 year old does not need an in depth discussion from an adult male.
  6. I can tell you in this ‘educational ’ process, Bishops are offending young women. Teach them at home, in classes, in group settings, in firesides then stick to the temple questions. My husband was counseled to let people answer the questions. Even when he knew there was a question of honesty and of whether interpretations were accurate.
  7. Unless requested by the youth, I think the default should be for a parent to be there. My 17 year old was asked to explain the law of chastity in her last interview. My husband was there. I don’t know of any adult women who has ever been asked to do that in an interview. Bishops need to understand how embarrassing and uncomfortable this makes a teen girl or adult women feel. They need to understand personal space and boundaries. Their friendly overtures are not necessarily comfortable for a teen girl. Sexual topics in a one on one situation are not comfortable.

  9. https://www.jpost.com/health-and-wellness/israeli-scientists-say-their-antiviral-drug-could-stop-covid-19-679437 A team of Israeli scientists say that a drug previously used in an uncontrolled fashion to treat HIV has a direct antiviral effect against coronavirus, sending patients home virus-free within only a few days. Code Pharma, which is headquartered in the Netherlands but has its research and development office in Israel and an Israeli CEO, recently completed a Phase I trial of its drug Codivir for use against coronavirus. On Monday, the Israeli research team that will support the Phase II trial applied for permission from the Helsinki Committee to move forward at the Barzilai Medical Center. The Phase II study, which will involve around 150 patients and is expected to launch in the next month, will also take place in Spain, Brazil and South Africa. According to Code Pharma CEO Zyon Ayni, the goal is to complete the trial within about three to six months and then already apply for emergency use authorization of the drug.
  10. I was going to watch while waiting up for my daughter to come home from a date. 😬

  12. This is not about protecting women. The scriptures make it pretty clear where the problem lies.
  13. It could also be because of waning immunity and the elderly were vaccinated first.
  14. Interesting data out of the UK. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/three-quarters-covid-patients-under-194446142.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuYmluZy5jb20v&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAG5iCypqld7wZ9KLHfoCdUMMIyfY6AcXcN7tx6bhrA4N_A7EDwt7tdcr6UN1PjOXnKup6sYtioDMXqZMCWLUkTgGPMViswchm6yjW3ZhWhlveIsQ-lOvWWEmwWNi8Hoty37fMuyUPQHhwT5JomazEKjg1WgIopOTqFb1qMt7QywK For those over 50, 61 percent of hospitalized patients were vaccinated. For those under 50, 73 percent were unvaccinated. I do remember reading how the elderly, had a lower immune response to the vaccine than those who were younger. This is probably why a targeted booster shot roll out is happening.
