NY Times: The Power of Paxlovid

Greater use of Paxlovid could substantially reduce the number of Covid deaths. Dr. Jha estimates that if everyone over 50 who has Covid was properly treated with Paxlovid deaths would drop from 400 to 50 a day. Should be no paywall

NYTimes: An American in Ukraine finds the war he has been searching for.

After showing up in Poland last winter as a freelance journalist, he has built one of the biggest private military companies in Ukraine, The Mozart Group, and as the war has expanded in the past few weeks so has his repertoire of tactical services. The organization’s name was his saucy response to a Russian mercenary outfit that uses the name of another famous composer, the Wagner Group.

Mr. Milburn and his staff, mostly former special operations soldiers, are doing everything from rescuing civilians in the line of fire to conducting frontline training, nighttime training, officer training and workshops on the fineries of drone warfare.

Driven by the same pro-Ukrainian spirit that has put yellow and blue flags flying across the Western world, Mr. Milburn feels strongly that this is a just war. But there are other forces operating on him — boredom, guilt, his own sorrows and a quest for redemption, themes he explores, in quite searing detail, in a recently published memoir.

In Iraq and Afghanistan, he said, “our position was somewhat morally ambivalent; to many people there we were the invader. But here we’re repelling an invader. Here is something absolutely unambiguous. And how many wars in modern times are morally unambiguous?

Prof. Timothy Snyder Class 10 The Making of Modern Ukraine

Simply amazing stuff. This lecture is sort of self contained. You don't need to have seen the others.

The concept of empire right up to Stalin.

The Kerch Bridge 24 hours later

There is some video out this morning. It looks like the few cars that are crossing have police escorts. You can.see the damage to the RR bridge. 24 hrs and the fuel tanks are still there plus a crane.
I've read some claims that the video of the train crossing last night was fake. The Kerch Bridge has single gage track as opposed to double gage. I have no idea.
I thought by now we would see video of regular car traffic and at least one real train going across in daylight (It's 2:00pm over there now). I've looked for the latest video but this is all.Ive found. IMHO that bridge was righteously fucked.


Don't trust. Verify. You can go past the warning. All it shows are the bridges. Russian twitter trolls must be at work hoping you don't watch.

Today. That does seem to show a double gage I guess.

There are conflicting reports about what happened at the Crimea Bridge.
