The Curiosity Index: Week 22

So my blogging along with my reading has ground to a halt in recent days but there’s a slow resurgence this week. This will be the first Curiosity Index in, I am ashamed to say, six weeks. Still we’re back and full of link laden goodness to stimulte, inform and amuse.


The Week’s Postings

Monday: Rested, renewed, revived
Tuesday: Sweden, this virus & protecting the old
Wednesday: The plague spreads (Locusts not coronavirus)
Thursday: Fireflies

And related reading


The Pandemic…

Well the world continues to be in the grip of this disease but I think the shift in the richer north back towards a more sustainable approach is under way. Yet there is a very wide range of views about Sweden’s approach.

A plateau.
