Here’s why Australians don’t have to get a fifth Covid jab



Australians don’t have to get a fifth Covid-19 jab according to new advice

Australians will not be required to get a fifth Covid-19 jab as the nation’s top vaccine body releases its latest round of advice.

Australia is currently staring down the barrel of another wave of Covid-19 infections.

By the end of last week, health authorities reported almost 55,000 cases of COVID-19 across Australia, driven largely by new sub-variants of Omicron.

This is an increase of 47 per cent on week on week.

Some were speculating these stats may have led to a national adoption of a fifth vaccine dose.

However, that won’t be the case.

Today, the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation, or ATAGI, decided not to recommend fifth dose after “considering international evidence as well as local data.”

The country’s health minister Mark Butler anticipates new booster recommendations will be made in early 2023 as winter approaches.

All in all, five-and-a-half million Australians still need to get a Covid booster shot, with the chief health officer urging those who haven’t been boosted to roll up their sleeves.

It comes as ATAGI approves a brand new Covid vaccine for use in Australia offering protection from two strains of the virus – the original strain and the Omicron variant.

This will be available from December 12 for people 18 and older.

Ukraine prepares for a summer of violence



Is support for the war waning after the conflict has surpassed 1-year and millions of dollars?

After a Russian air assault on Kyiv in which one civilian was killed, residential buildings in wealthy districts of Moscow were hit by multiple drone strikes injuring two people.

The Kremlin is claiming that most of the drone strikes which happened during broad daylight—were intercepted.

A Russian politician said the attack on the capital was the most dangerous since World War II.

Russia says Ukraine launched the attack and has vowed to bolster their air defenses.

Meanwhile, Ukraine is denying direct involvement, having just recently suffered three air attacks within a 24-hour time span.

Last month, leaked Department of Defense documents revealed possible weak links in Ukraine’s military campaign against Russian forces.

Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine with tens of thousands of troops more than a year ago and there appears to be no end in sight.

“I think there is a great risk”: will AI steal our jobs?



Artificial Intelligence has become an increasingly powerful and pervasive force in our modern world.

Artificial intelligence is not a new concept. However, the growing advancements have the potential to revolutionise industries, improve efficiency, and enhance the quality of life.

Along with its promising advancements, artificial intelligence also brings certain risks and challenges that must be acknowledged and addressed.

It has become the focus of lawmakers, who are working towards greater regulation of the sector.

U.S. and European Union officials recently met in Sweden to weigh up the benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies.

“The AI process is creeping up on us,” said Dr Keith Suter, who is a global futurist.

“You’ve got competition between companies.”

It’s almost like some of us can see this raft that’s heading towards the rapids and a disappearance towards the waterfall, and we’re giving a warning but it’s not being heeded because everybody’s in this race to get down to the river,” Dr Suter said.
