Now my company is finally talking about actually going paperless for real.
No one is going paperless until the government passes a law declaring it so......a law that will no doubt be written on paper.
Such potential!

Some here will appriciate this:

AA worldwide is using Zoom to hold meetings. I'm going to a San Diego meeting tonight with a friend (I'm in VA). I haven't been to many meetings in the last couple of years, so this will be fun maybe. Plus I can turn the volume down on the blowhards. They've always had some level of virtual meets but it's really catching on now, or so I hear. I don't know how they're passing the basket but I'm sure it will be easy.

P.S. I don't want to push this thread off-topic with the AA subject so if you want to comment on that specifically, here's an Award Winning Thread on this board

Thanks Witness, but interlopers are always welcome at AA meetings. If they want to streak through our zoom meeting butt-ass-naked, we'll grade them accordingly and continue our conversations.

It occurs to me.

This would be the absolute best time to knock over a Museum Collection.

Gotta think on this.

Moderna Announces Positive Interim Phase 1 Data for its mRNA Vaccine (mRNA-1273) Against Novel Coronavirus
https://bit.ly/3g9Rzi2

https://investors.modernatx.com/news-re ... na-vaccine
After two doses all participants evaluated to date across the 25 µg and 100 µg dose cohorts seroconverted with binding antibody levels at or above levels seen in convalescent sera

mRNA-1273 elicited neutralizing antibody titer levels in all eight initial participants across the 25 µg and 100 µg dose cohorts, reaching or exceeding neutralizing antibody titers generally seen in convalescent sera

mRNA-1273 was generally safe and well tolerated

mRNA-1273 provided full protection against viral replication in the lungs in a mouse challenge model

Anticipated dose for Phase 3 study between 25 µg and 100 µg; expected to start in July
