Well when Black Friday is in that week then I guess it could make a difference

Not from any scientific perspective related to the pandemic though.

People will just order online, ship to places like Blaine and Pt. Roberts, and pick up on the 30th.

Vancouver police arrested a woman for pretending to be a nurse, they launched an investigation in June, police say she gave medical care to patients at BC Womans hospital between June 2020 and June 2021, police are working with Provincial Health Services to determine how many patients she provided medical care to as currently police do not know.

She is also wanted in Ottawa for doing the same thing.

https://vancouversun.com/news/woman-...l-nurse-police


Looks like she has done it a few times since 2005.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calga...ation-1.907368

She has made a career out of being a fraud it seems, with her first known crime being in 1991, and she has a record in both Canada and US, attended nursing school but wasn't certified.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottaw...inic-1.6178773


One good reason to do fingerprint background checks rather than name based, seems they must not be doing fingerprint based background checks since she is able to use fake names to get away with this, maybe time to change hiring policies in healthcare.

There was a fake dentist out there running a clinic in his basement for ages. Maybe it's easier to hide as an imposter in a big city. In the image of Ferdinand Waldo Demara, cheek is the #1 requirement.

I honestly wouldn't think it be this hard to fix a radiator heating system so it I dunno goes on and off, its set at 1C but never goes off, at least in winter windows open = comfortable, but it better be fixed by summer or I am going to write a stern letter of disatisfaction to the government.

Most bizarre car transaction!

We sold my TT this week. Chap comes from Edmonton, looks at car. Yep this is what I want. Hubby tells chap what's wrong with it. Chap pays half agreed price. Hubby agrees to take it to Edmonton as we are going there anyway.

Take car to Edmonton, park outside apartments. Go inside, do paperwork, get other half of money. Put chaps plate on TT and leave.

At no point did Chap drive the car and he didn't even go outside to check it was there, when we delivered it.

Completely nuts.

He has a time machine that will transport him and car back in time where he will use the car for some crime. You, the owners of the car at the time of the crime will be framed.
Later, when you try to transfer ownership it just looks even more suspicious.
S'obvious.

Well that's interesting.

I just looked up red/white meat and and found that Lamb can be considered either.

Maybe the question should differentiate between African dinosaurs and European ones.

Al least now you know that all you have to do is to go back in time just before he does and stop him.

It's a repeat though.

Apparently there has been a lot of progress blocking scams and spam callers.
