The runner in me is tempted to say 'here we go again' where the biologist in me thinks 'we're just getting started here!' Most of the world is now very much entrenched in the second wave.

I'm lucky enough to live in one of the places in the developed world with the lowest positivity rates for COVID right now. That comes with certain benefits like travel bubbles and a certain peace of mind. Part of the reason we're doing so well is adhering to strict social distancing rules, mandatory masking and...

There's a saying "Lightning never strikes the same place twice." It's a nice saying but it's categorically untrue. It's meant to inspire us to seize opportunities because we might not have them ever again. That's pretty much a false notion as well. It actually strikes the same tall object or even open area again all... Continue Reading →
