Subscription Problems Fix For iCloud.com Email Users: Several readers using iCloud email have reported they have stopped receiving daily email issues. They are still subscribed but iCloud is blocking the delivery of new blog issues. The problem is due to Apple vs Google compatibility issues.

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.


Daily coronavirus cases in Spain fall slightly to 9,419, while fatalities rise to 182: (Updated Friday 02Oct20, 09:28)
The Spanish Health Ministry on Thursday reported that 9,419 new coronavirus cases have been detected in Spain, down 1,597 from the day before. The number of new Covid-19-related fatalities, however, rose by five from Wednesday to 182. For now, the data is insufficient to confirm a rising or falling trend in either variables, given that the daily number of infections has been oscillating between 9,000 and 12,000 for the last few weeks in Spain, with daily deaths coming in above 100. That said, the latter data point has been very close to 200 in the last four days.

Trump joins growing list of virus-infected world leaders: President Donald Trump has joined a growing group of world leaders who have been infected with the coronavirus. At 74, the U.S. president is the oldest head of state to become infected with the virus, and his age puts him at higher risk of serious complications from COVID-19. The First Lady has also tested positive. Full article: https://apnews.com/article/virus-outbreak-donald-trump-health-jair-bolsonaro-boris-johnson-793fe8dc45d284f39389791783f3d64b


Trump gets experimental antibody cocktail to treat COVID-19. What is it? : President Donald Trump’s doctor gave him an experimental antibody cocktail to treat his coronavirus infection.
Dr. Sean Conley said the president was given a single 8-gram dose of a “polyclonal antibody cocktail” as a “precautionary measure,” in addition to “zinc, vitamin D, famotidine (Pepsid antacid), melatonin and a daily aspirin,” reads the statement tweeted by White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
Trump is also being transported to Walter Reed Hospital in Maryland “for the next few days,” McEnany said Friday evening, McClatchy’s D.C. Bureau reported.
So, what is a polyclonal antibody cocktail?
According to the developers, Regeneron, it’s a mixture of two different kinds of antibodies that can be administered before someone has been exposed to the coronavirus or as treatment once infected, as is the case with Trump.

E10 petrol is considered damaging for older cars according to Dutch reports: The problems with E10 (which replaced 95 fuel last year) which contains as much as 10 per cent sustainable bioethanol means that newer cars produce up to 2 per cent less carbon dioxide, but Dutch motoring organisation Bovag said prior to its launch that it would not be compatible with many older models.
Despite the Europe wide introduction of these new petrol types, pumps in Gibraltar and Spain still refer to 95 and 98 Octane fuel. Full story: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/10/01/e10-petrol-is-considered-damaging-for-older-cars-according-to-dutch-reports/


Paternity ruling nudges Delphine Boel to Belgian royalty: Artist and sculptor Delphine Boel is on the cusp of officially becoming a Belgian princess after a Brussels court ruled in her favor Thursday in a decades-old royal paternity scandal pitting her against former King Albert II.
Her lawyer, Alain de Jonghe, confirmed in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that the court gave his client full satisfaction, recognizing her as the former monarch’s daughter. A statement from her team of lawyers said she would be able to be called princess “Delphine of Saxe Coburg,” and will be set on the same footing as her royal brothers and sisters.
