In case the parents are doing things against the government's wishes, like disciplining your child so it does not become an a*hole tyrant like most children are brought up now, or preventing them from taking testosterone/estrogen then the state can take away your children, and decide for them.I would have thought it would be the parents that consent to this, not the kids themselves. It gets fuzzier as you get to 15 and above, but younger than that I'd have thought it would definitely be the parents who choose.
Ooh, I have strong evidence (almost proof, dare I say) for your theory.I’ve just heard an interesting theory that COVID-19 came from Greece.
If you see VISA and IOS in that text, then this might be of interest (but put on your tinfoil hat first):
That, I have to believe is an approximation. The actual shell of the virus is made up of proteins which are all kinds of shapes. I'd guess they repeat the same number of times as an icosahedron in the round, but they won't have straight edges like that, so it's not actually a platonic solid.
X-ray crystallography, cryo-electron microscopy and molecular simulations have elucidated atomic-level structure of several viruses. In view of this, a recently determined crystal structure of SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid has revealed its architecture and self-assembly very similar to that of the SARS-CoV-1 and the Middle-East respiratory syndrome virus (MERS-CoV). In structure determination, capsid symmetry is an important factor greatly contributing to its stability and balance between the packaged genome and envelope. Since the capsid protein subunits are asymmetrical, the maximum number of inter-subunit interactions can be established only when they are arranged symmetrically. Therefore, a stable capsid must be in a perfect symmetry and lowest possible free-energy. Isometric virions are spherical but geometrically icosahedrons as compared to complex virions that are both isometric and helical.
I don't want to cry wolf yet, but you may be a little too overconfident. Even if all cases in China can be contained, I believe the avian flu is already very widespread outside China (among wild birds and poultry). So it can jump to people anywhere in the world again and start spreading from person to person. COVID-19 has proved we have pitiful tracking in many places in the world. I have no idea how bad the avian flu is in humans, how deathly or how stealth, but it's bad news.You'd hope their contact tracing system is better than ours and well tested by now, so if they've found all of his contacts and nobody else has it, and now he's better, the contagion has been contained. If not, we all know how how to wear masks and keep our distance.
