I spend so much time each day gathering information for articles and posts that it seemed silly not to compose a newsletter.
Below is a summary of all the most fascinating articles and information I’ve come across in the last 48hrs.

First half of summaries are available to all. The second half is paywalled as these naturally take time to put together.
Spot Of The Day:
Researchers analysed data from 33 state prisons between January and July 2023 to evaluate the effectiveness of bivalent COVID-19 shots introduced in fall 2022. Of 96,201 inmates with available testing and vaccination records, 2,835 cases were identified. Among these cases, 1,187 occurred in individuals who had received bivalent vaccines, compared to 568 cases in the unvaccinated group. The group that had received only monovalent vaccines was excluded from the analysis. While the number of bivalent vaccine recipients was higher (36,609 vs. 20,889 unvaccinated), the infection rate was still higher in the bivalent group due to nearly double the number of infections.
“The highest SIR was 25.6 (15.5-37.5) in the 5-19 years age group, following the second dose of the vaccine, with an estimated five additional myocarditis and pericarditis cases per 100,000 persons vaccinated. A statistically significant increased SIR of single organ cutaneous vasculitis (SOCV) was also observed following the first dose of BNT162b2 in the 20-39 years age group only.”
Some workers faced misconduct charges for defying the mandate, resulting in denied unemployment benefits. No religious exemption requests were approved. Now, a nonprofit hospital that left employees jobless and without unemployment insurance is sending text messages to these individuals, urging them to return to work. The MaineGeneral Health Recruitment team reached out to former registered nurse Terry Poland, stating, "You were once a proud member of the MaineGeneral team. Would you consider rejoining us? We would be pleased to discuss options with you."
The UK's pledge marks its largest single funding commitment yet to combat climate change, according to a government statement. The Green Climate Fund (GCF), the world's largest such fund, was established under United Nations climate negotiations to help financially support less affluent nations in achieving carbon emission reduction goals, promoting cleaner energy sources, and adapting to climate change. Britain has committed to allocate £11.6 billion ($14.46 billion) for international climate finance from 2021 to 2026. Sunak's office stated, "Today’s pledge represents a 12.7% increase on the UK’s previous contribution to the GCF for the period of 2020-2023."
The reason for the auction's low interest lies in the fact that, for the first time, bidders cannot retract their bids at will. Previously, they could submit low offers, boast about their affordability, and then later opt for the higher market price. The Government has now challenged this practice, forcing bidders to acknowledge that wind farm operations require higher electricity prices to be profitable. The expense of subsidising wind energy is substantial, as is the cost of transmitting power from remote wind farms to populated areas. Additional costs include grid balancing and supporting wind energy with gas plants during low-wind periods. Moreover, expenses are incurred in compensating wind farms for reducing output on windy days when the grid cannot accommodate excess power.
