Starting Monday, employees here can start coming back to the office as they wish after consulting with their manager. The announcement said that all employees will be required to come back onsite at some point in mid June, and the exact date will be finalized when the new order is released from the ...

COVID-19

I’m guessing that doesn’t affect that vaccine’s “emergency use” categorization? ie employers still won’t be able to require it If it's fully approved, it no longer needs the emergency use categorization. Don't know what the laws look like to require getting it as over half the country has been vacc...

And the pay will go back down. Just is what it is at this point, I guess.

why was there expected to be that kind of influx? Vaccines and help wanted signs in a ton of windows... they reported on it this morning on NPR, and many experts thought it'd be well below the million some were calling. There's a ton of people that dropped out of the work force to take care of kids...

Pfizer is applying for full approval of their vaccine. Hopefully it's soon so the excuse not to get it because it's an experimental vaccine will go away.
The fun part is they're still part of the experiment.... they're the control.

Mike Trout, the best player in the game, is irrelevant.

I think I understand what you're trying to say; however, what you originally said and what you're currently trying to say are roughly 309000 miles apart.

I guess here's another way to think about my point: if Mike Trout didn't exist, the game of baseball wouldn't be any different than it is right now, other than 3 AL MVPs going to other players The list of people who "changed the game" of baseball is like 5 people or less, yeah? If your point is Mik...

Okay... then you get it in writing and if then they don't sign it, you drag 'em through the mud.

Like I said, I don't think IP rights are the bottleneck. If you think they are, all I'm saying is prove it.

Source of the post I do not think canceling these patents will affect business practices going forward.
I agree, but I also do not believe that opening the patents for use by others will solve the bottleneck considering Moderna already said they won't enforce their patent rights...

The comparison (on my end anyways) was made to highlight that out of all the major sports, MLB is probably the top of the list of where great players get passes for not winning championships (or even getting into the playoffs).

I certainly understand the intent of the filibuster, but (as with most things) the GOP uses it far beyond the intent, so rules need to be put in place.

Seems odd to do it now... there's a month left in school for most areas. Come back in the fall with fresh start. That said, I think one of the reasons you haven't seen spread in schools is because of the precautions put in place. If numbers in those communities are low, it'll certainly be something ...

Moderna has said they won't enforce their patent rights on their vaccine, but simply saying that isn't good enough.

I haven't read anything on the matter... seems odd to me that IP is the hold up. Pay the royalties for access to the IP and move on with production.
