There's another surprise buried in the emergence of Omicron. The variant is not a single strain, but rather a family of three: BA.1, BA.2, and BA.3.
Each of these variants is as different from one another as Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta are from one another. What this means for the current state of the pandemic is uncertain. However, one thing is clear: SARS-CoV-2 has an enormous capacity not only to continue to produce new variants, but variants that surprise us both in their number and their biological properties.
As with any variant of SARS-CoV-2, we return to the source of the virus: the wild-type Wuhan strain. This is the blueprint for all variants to come. The significant variant has no Greek letter name, but rapidly displaced the Wuhan almost everywhere in the world except East Africa. Here we call it the Triad, a name that denotes three mutations, the D614G mutation in the Spike protein, the P323L mutation in the NSP12 polymerase, and the C241U noncoding mutation in the 5’ end. The Triad is the founding variant of all variants of concern viruses.
FIGURE 1: Evolutionary distances between major variants of concern, the Omicron family of viruses, and select African “A” viruses. The number of unique mutations is noted for each variant, illustrating how different the sublineages are from each other compared to other major variants. We have shown the divergence of the African viruses early because of the absence of the Triad mutations.
We note that the Omicron variant significantly differs from other major variants of concern. We identify a precursor, which we call the Omicron parent, likely to have risen about March of 2021. The three sublineages share 39 mutations, which we include as the presumptive "Omicron parent.”
The Omicron parent diverged into the Omicron family: BA.1, which contains an additional 20 mutations; BA. 2, which includes an additional 27; and BA.3, which consists of an additional 13. Remarkably, all the family members were detected simultaneously in South Africa, although they likely diverged from one several months previously. This is a unique example of such highly divergent strains appearing in a population simultaneously.

I've ordered my zen and I'm wondering, am I able to get banned? In that case do certain scripts have a higher chance of getting banned than others?

2022.01.26 18:04 Plevin0101 MEB Question
I made my election two weeks ago on my initial issue (lower back pain) not meeting retention standards. I have been waiting on my VA ratings since then. I was under the impression that the process takes about 120-180 days. I am on a TRADOC post if that matters.
I’ve been getting mixed answers on when I will be officially separated from my PEBLO, VA reps, and fairly new MEB retirees. I keep hearing as soon as March 1st or as late as May 1st.
I know everything MEB related is situational because everyone’s issues are different. If anyone on here has gone through something similar what was your timeline? After you received your ratings, how long after were you completely separated?

Does anyone know any good laptops for gaming? I am interested in 3d gaming but I am under a budget and I am not looking to spend way too much. What are some available options? Anything good for processing speed and graphics to run smoothly? What about for maximum storage?

Playing on Namalsk, bump into a random guy and he says he’s starving and asks for food. I put some fat from a deer I dried out on the ground and he says “oooooh you’re doing that” and proceeds to shoot me in the head. I didn’t have any weapon out. Wtf was I doing?
