Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The problem with straight numbers, such as x% of those in ICU have been vaccinated is you don’t have any age or underlying pathology break out, many ICU patients that are fully vaccinated may be +70 with underlying medical conditions, beware of the numbers, at the other end you hear about a 28 year ...

Re: how to use Catastro de Bienes Nacionales?

The flat Kansas like topology of Uruguay and centralized shape probably lends itself to an exhaustive cataloguing But as other mentioned the terrain of Chile is far more varied and out of reach (a peak in the distance that noone has summited that is supposed to be a land marker). Well peaks dont ex...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Last I saw, Pfizer was at about 15%. Nearly all the rest is Sinovac with a bit of AstraZeneca in the mix. I'm over 45 but don't have any condition that qualified me for Pfizer. I showed the woman at the entrance table my ID that indicated that I was born in the US. I told her I wanted to see about ...

Re: Kodkod / güiña cat, coolest animal encounter yet.

If they weren’t so tiny I would think twice about standing in front of one, I think as they are not strictly nocturnal they have watched people from cover and aren’t impressed by us. They also go up a tree like a squirrel so they are probably comfortable in forested areas......

Re: Kodkod / güiña cat, coolest animal encounter yet.

You will probably see it again, we had a regular visitor years ago down on the rio negro, it would sun on a concrete pad in front of our office, I must admit we use to leave fish out for it, I don’t think it was a normal part of their diet but it came around regularly so we where part of it hunting ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The frigen Minsal, and the university of chile, plus a pile of other talking heads were representing this as a full phase lll trial. just more PR bullshit.

Re: The Big Patagonia Resettlement Idea

Example: Agro project done in a boat only access site in north coastal BC cost 40% of the exact same development done in Patagonia, and the Patagonian site had road access for heavy equipment and trucks...... Much of the primary crew for both projects were the same, the Chilean project had twice as ...
