We are leaving back to the USA on Tuesday. Any reports of longer check in times etc?
Heh, why not change to Monday?
I would definitely allow for significantly more time on Tuesday. Why would there be reports now?

COVID-19 Discussion Board / Re: Dropping Antibody Levels

I wonder if it was boosted by further exposure.
Certainly possible. No way to know, as this was my first quant titer.
My son had COVID last month, but nobody else in the family tested positive on multiple PCRs each.

Anyone else going to take the Roche quant titer (Labcorp test 164090)? Would love to see comps.

How severe was your case? I thought they were saying that people with mild cases likely have lower antibody count.

From the PM office:


PM Netanyahu Holds Discussions on BGI Airport
(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, over the weekend, held discussions on the issue of Ben-Gurion International Airport and will submit a proposal to the Cabinet tomorrow on halting flights to and from Israel for two weeks in order to prevent the entry into Israel of additional coronavirus mutations.

It was agreed in principle, subject to Cabinet approval:

* A ban on incoming and outgoing foreign and Israeli passenger flights

* A reduction in arrival permits to Ben-Gurion International Airport, which would only be allowed in exceptional circumstances that would be approved by a committee headed by the Health and Transportation Ministry director generals

* Formulating a separate outline for humanitarian cases requiring special flights

* The restrictions will apply to passenger flights for 14 days and will take effect upon approval by the Cabinet
Is it different this time from all the past times he's said this?

Skip St Regis for now.
If he loved the Sheraton and the area, then that's still the place to go.

I haven't been able to get titer levels yet.

It only recently got EUA approval: https://www.labcorp.com/coronavirus-disease-covid-19/news/roche-receives-fda-emergency-use-authorization-new-semi-quantitative-test-measure-level-sars-cov-2
Took this, 192.6 U/mL. Anything over 0.8 is considered positive.
The total range is 0.4-250 U/mL.

Curious how this compares to other people who had COVID or had the vaccine. But it's excellent news that 11 months later I'm still at the high end of the range.

Credit Cards / Re: Purchases That Work For Amex Platinum Travel Credit

How to purchase these with airline credit.
I paid for the status match on Amex last year and it was not covered.
500 milers are covered.

Got your point, just don't think it makes sense for Samsung to bring it back on their phones unless it's a higher end version for professionals like the equivalent of iPhone 12 Pro.
AKA, Note 21 Ultra.
But it should have been on the S21 Ultra.

Not really relevant to the convo. SD card definitely makes sense in the Macbook Pro which is used by many pros and has a much narrower market than the iPhone. It should have never been removed. Macbook Air is somewhere in the middle, but given that size is the main selling feature and it's for more casual use they can get away with no SD card.
Magsafe is a huge mistake that they removed it, another obvious backwards step, glad that's back.

The SD slot in my MB Pro is a regular standard slot, no reason to assume it will be proprietary.
It's relevant in that companies can realize they made a mistake by alienating their power users by removing SD storage. Clearly Apple never did that on phones, but Samsung has zigzagged before.

We will, but not from Apple. None of the iPhones ever had one and Apple makes major bank on iCloud and internal storage upgrades.
Correct.

Specifically a regular SD card slot to accommodate photographers.
Either way, this "outdated" and "ancient" tech is being brought back. By Apple.
I daresay we'll see another flagship phone with SD storage again.

Credit Cards / Re: 75,000 point bonus on Chase Ink Cash and Ink Unlimited
« on: January 22, 2021, 12:02:00 PM »
I got this card and spent $7,500 the first month. If I utilize the 0% APR and only pay the minimum payment due for the first 12 months, when will I receive the bonus?
Chase awards points based on spending, not payback.
