    India variant could seriously disrupt lifting of lockdown, says Boris Johnson
    The final stage of the lifting of coronavirus lockdown restrictions across England could face “serious disruption” due to the India variant, the prime minister has warned, as he announced plans to accelerate the vaccine programme to curb its spread.Boris Johnson said the gap between the first and second Covid jab would be cut from 12 weeks to eight for all over-50s and the clinically vulnerable, admitting: “The race between our vaccine programme and the virus may be about to become a great deal tighter.”
    He announced that the army would be deployed to two variant hotspots – Bolton and Blackburn with Darwen – to help with vaccinations, and urged residents in those areas to “think twice” before taking advantages of the freedoms allowed again from Monday.
    Johnson said the India variant appeared to be “more transmissible” than the dominant strain in the UK, which originated in Kent, but that it was not yet clear by how much. If it is significantly more, then, he warned, “we’re likely to face some hard choices”. Asked whether the lockdown easing would have to be paused during a press conference, he added: “The truth is, we cannot say for certain … The situation is very different from last year, we are in the throes of an incredible vaccine rollout … We just have to wait and see … We rule nothing out.”The PM’s words came as new documents released by the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) revealed just how worried scientists are about the variant. Modelling by Sage suggested it was “a realistic possibility” that it could be up to 50% more transmissible than the Kent variant.If that was the case, they said, progressing to stage 3 of the road map – due on Monday – would “lead to a substantial resurgence of hospitalisations (similar to, or larger than, previous peaks)”. The variant’s spread will raise questions about perceived government delays in adding India to the “red list” of countries from which arrivals have to quarantine in hotels.Johnson’s announcement came following calls from councils in Lancashire and Greater Manchester to let them roll out vaccines to all over-18s in some variant hotspots, including Bolton and Blackburn with Darwen.

    NdM : la dépêche est tirée du journal personnel de l’auteur, complétée des premiers commentaires suscités.

    Suite à une diatribe de ma part à l’encontre de la mauvaise qualité de beaucoup de tutoriels consacrés à GnuPG, on m’a suggéré de créer le mien. Alors, without further ado, le voici. lien n°1 : Journal à l’origine de la dépêchelien n°2 : Site de GnuPGlien n°3 : Blog de l’auteur : la carte openpgpSommaire

    • Enfin un tutoriel clair et complet pour utiliser GnuPG (valable pour Linux / MacOS / Windows)

      Voir aussi la man page de gpg en français : http://www.linuxcertif.com/man/1/gpg

      Notes pour les Windowsiens·ennes utilisateurs·trices de Gpg4win (le GUI de GnuPG pour Windows) : la modification d’expiration des sous-clés d’une clé privée n’est pas gérée par Kleopatra : il faut donc passer par la version en ligne de commande de Gnupg.
      ...sauf que le répertoire utilisé comme HOME par la commande gpg ... (C :\Users\toto\.gnupg) n’est PAS celui utilisé par Gpg4win (C :\Users\toto\AppData\Roaming\gnupg) ET que les fichiers de lock ne sont pas compatibles entre les 2 implémentations !

      La soluce est donc :
      – aller dans le HOME de gpg4win (C :\Users\toto\AppData\Roaming\gnupg) et renommer tous les fichiers *.lock
      – lancer gpg en ligne de commande en lui spécifiant l’option --homedir ...cheminAppData...
      Ce qui peut donner en utilisant un terminal « unix-like » tel que gitbash :

      #lister les clés privées disponibles
      gpg --homedir /c/Users/toto/AppData/Roaming/gnupg/ -K

      #passer en mode interactif pour édition de la clé ma_cle
      gpg --homedir /c/Users/toto/AppData/Roaming/gnupg/ --edit-key ma_cle

      – une fois les modifs d’expiration des sous-clés faites, renommer les .lock à leur état initial

      (...et après on s’étonne de la sous-utilisation de GPG par le grand public !)

  • La listériose cause des dizaines de morts en Afrique du Sud
    http://www.lemonde.fr/planete/article/2018/01/29/la-listeriose-cause-des-dizaines-de-morts-en-afrique-du-sud_5248641_3244.htm

    Depuis que l’épidémie a été officiellement déclarée, le 5 décembre 2017, le nombre de décès a doublé. A mesure que les informations sur les patients concernés vont remonter, le bilan pourrait encore s’alourdir. Dans son dernier rapport sur la situation, l’Institut sud-africain de santé publique précise que les données finales sont disponibles pour seulement 29 % des cas (soit 238 sur 820), dont 34 % d’entre eux, soit 82 patients, sont décédés.

    La #listériose se transmet le plus souvent par l’intermédiaire d’aliments contaminés par la bactérie #Listeria_monocytogenes. Celle-ci peut se retrouver dans les sols, l’eau, la végétation et certaines selles animales. Principalement présente dans les produits laitiers non pasteurisés et dans certains aliments prêts à consommer, elle est capable de se développer même réfrigérée.

    Another such hack is the Gulf paid promoter of #Takfiri “rebels” in Syria, Charles #Lister: Russia’s Baghdadi Claim Needs Verification

    By Charles Lister
    “Russia’s claim to have killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in an airstrike in Raqqa on May 28 should be taken with a heavy grain of salt.
    ...
    Russia has a long track record of issuing fake claims and deliberate misinformation during its campaign in Syria.
    ...
    Beyond Russia’s likely bogus claim, ...”

    Cruickshank and Lister both spread factless propaganda sold as conclusion of the news content of an AP report. But the AP report was fake news.

    Un article du mois dernier de David Ignatius, commenté ci-dessous par Gareth Porter

    US intervention in Syria ? Not under Trump
    http://www.middleeasteye.net/columns/syrian-army-only-option-us-if-it-wants-fight-terror-1775504124

    The Ignatius account reflects a fundamental reality throughout northern Syria, from 2013 onwards, that was simply ignored in media coverage: all of the opposition groups have been absorbed into an al-Qaeda-controlled political-military order. The idea that the “moderate” groups could be a bulwark against al-Qaeda, which is now being peddled by #Lister, Cafarella and CNAS, no longer has any credibility even in those quarters in Washington that were once open to it.

    A tell-tale sign of the shift in attitude toward those groups’ mood in Washington is the fact that Ignatius used the past tense in referring to the CIA’s programme of arming the “moderate” groups in Syria in his article last month.

    The US military leadership was never on board with the policy of relying on those armed groups to advance US interests in Syria in the first place.

    It recognised that, despite the serious faults of the Assad regime, the Syrian army was the only Syrian institution committed to resisting both al-Qaeda and Islamic State.

    It seems likely that the Trump administration will now return to that point as it tries to rebuild a policy from the ashes of the failed policy of the Obama administration.
