Assorted content for your weekend reading.

- William Anderson sets out a few of the most important realities about the Kraken COVID-19 variant and its place within the ongoing pandemic. Glen Pyle and Jennifer Huang confirm that infection results in a far greater risk of myocarditis than vaccination. And Julia Doubleday weighs in on the fact that the wealthy and powerful gathered in Davos demanded exactly the preventative measures for themselves that they've denied the rest of us.

- Meanwhile, Steven Lewis discusses how a focus on ensuring everybody has access to primary health care would alleviate both health inequalities and burdens throughout our health care system. But Taylor Noakes writes that the federal government may need to take the lead in building a public system where conservative premiers are solely interested in slashing and privatizing.

    I estimate exobiology is needed for things like glowing aquarium species in space. Simple plant breeding speciation should work for Nanaimo. The smallest possible biomes are needed, for eventual aquarium making. They might be made just with lasers and sapphire wafers. Food is needed, eel grasses and shrimp brine. Hydrogen fires may be averted by adsorbing nanomaterials. The hazards of radiation will assist human health. Magnetic arms would be better than linear motors for terrariums/aquariums. Some animals will get magnetic clothes for gravity experiments that benefit us.

    The inflation is edible aquariums and dulled pet praying mantii. Some animals can be made smarter.
