    Australian news sounded more dramatic than that BBC article

    Thousands locked in at Shanghai Disneyland. Police blocked the exits and secured the grounds as authorities sent in dozens of hazmat-clad workers to the park.

    On the list of things to watch out for ... Snakes on Planes!

    “And there could be snakes, more likely around the landing gear.”

    June was rattlesnake season in the Californian desert and Qantas engineering manager Tim Heywood says the team came up with a “wheel whacker” for each aircraft.

    “The area is well known for its feisty ‘rattlers’ who love to curl up around the warm rubber tyres and in the aircraft wheels and brakes,” he says, so maintenance crew stomp their feet and whack the wheels to scare them off.

    (The critical “wheel whacker”, part of the engineering kit, is a repurposed broom handle.)

    Metro Manila now on 87% of adults vaccinated, expected to reach all but 100% by December.

    Remember all those,stories about vaccine hesitancy?
