Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Chile is flattening the curve, one way Canada has done it is keep the border with the US closed, we just got another 30 days..... Now Canada is in test and trace mode. I'm not sure about flattening, the excess death curve looks more like a downward slope now: Chile.jpg https://www.ft.com/content/a2...

Re: Creative Cooking ~ Sharing Our Experience

Looks crunchier than I expected, I was thinking it would be more like the “Mantecol” sold here. This is nothing to do with halva, but some time ago I followed this page: https://instagram.com/begyaramanci?igshid=ylzak5gpu2xg it’s all about pickles but since I don’t speak a word of Turkish I just loo...

Re: Peanut Halva ~ Makes Life Sweeter

Excuse my ignorance, but wouldn’t you normally use pistachios to make halva?

Re: Living in Chile, Working Remotely - My Experience

A 60-70% agency fee is crazy though, there are a bunch of agencies like Access Financial, Hecuba Dawn, Mauve / White Coral, just to name a few, who can provide solutions for situations like these, and fees are generally in the 15-20% range. Are you saying that these companies will engage in situati...

Re: Living in Chile, Working Remotely - My Experience

I think this is a UK-specific thing, I understand there was a reform of the IR 35 tax code there, with this important change: "IR35 – as the controversial tax reform is called – will see financial liability for defining the employment status of a freelancer shift from the employee to employer upon i...

Re: Internet in Rural areas

Finally catching up with this topic :-) Mem had excellent information, I agree that if you have mobile 4G service that's the way to go. You can use pretty much any mobile to check service at the location, on Android the application G-NetTrack Lite will tell you about the mobile environment, and on i...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The only reliable data is the excess death statistic, which was updated by the Financial Times again yesterday: https://www.ft.com/content/a26fbf7e-48f8-11ea-aeb3-955839e06441. This is taken from Chilean government data of course, they give the link at the bottom of the page. Interesting article fr...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Today I heard the press conference. The subsecretary requested urgently that people with symptoms do the test and gave that as a cause for the much lower amount of tests realized the last few days. To me, that sounds doubtful. 2 weeks ago Universidad de Chile said that test results are 14 days dela...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

so does this mean all the previous reported deaths were too low in reality? that the reason Chile has a low death rate vs total cases has bene just due to data reporting? to compare with old numbers, we need to look at the lower "old methodology" numbers. meaning real deaths are actually declining ...
