An international team of scientists have identified antibodies that neutralize omicron and other SARS-CoV-2 variants. These antibodies target areas of the virus spike protein that remain essentially unchanged as the viruses mutate. By identifying the targets of these “broadly neutralizing” antibodies on the spike protein, it might be possible to design vaccines and antibody treatments…Scientists identify antibodies that can neutralize omicron
I didn’t know there was a competition for that
Sometimes I come across a sport/activity that one would never think would be at the level of world championship, or even a regular championship for that matter.
The Slippery Stairs Championship
World Chase Tag – yup, the old schoolyard game has a championship.
National Air Guitar Championship – maybe the least surprising, but I didn’t expect that one could even judge air guitar in order to pick a winner.
Dods Championship – looks like the opposite of Olympic diving.
Ostrich racing. I knew you could ride on them!
And my favorite, the medieval knight fights. There are many videos of this new (old) form of MMA. It looks like no matter how strong/big you are, it’s still going to be an exhausting endeavor.
