February 2021

A General Overview February it’s really the shortest month out there! Came and went with, yet again, no major news. Here in Europe we are struggling with COVID vaccines, apparently because the negotiations with the pharmaceutical industries didn’t go that well. Actually we should say that they made a mess of it, and in the… Read More February 2021

January 2021

A General Overview To be honest, nothing major to write this month.
