  1. Past hour
  2. some headlines for the day as it relates to the economy: US jobs picture darkens as large employers axe staff https://www.ft.com/content/46f6cf45-488d-4704-88f3-b67fdef95a6d?segmentId=b385c2ad-87ed-d8ff-aaec-0f8435cd42d9 Jobs melting away fast as coronavirus wreaks havoc on economy https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/jobs-melting-away-fast-as-coronavirus-wreaks-havoc-on-economy Why the Global Recession Could Last a Long Time https://www.nytimes.com/2020/04/01/business/economy/coronavirus-recession.html?action=click&module=Spotlight&pgtype=Homepage
  3. Today
  4. Keep in mind that HIPAA means we don't know the background of these famous cases. Other medical conditions or even smoking might be a factor.
  5. Yeah, we need the testing. In addition, there are likely people who were exposed and had no illness, perhaps minor cold symptoms. I have a former co worker who got severe pneumonia. Mid 40s woman, works as a bartender, smokes like a chimney. This was late February. A HS classmate who is an RN in Houston thinks she had it in late December. My 9 year old daughter had a serious cough, a slight sporadic fever, and x-ray detected pneumonia in mid February. No serious breathing problems, but it took 3 weeks to clear up. No one in her family (including me) or AFAIK at her school, has been symptomatic. Never tested, too early. All three. Now we have the hydroxycloroquine thing. It clearly alleviates the symptoms, test after test has shown this. I may not be a medical expert but I have a science background and a very strong feel for statistics, and I'm feeling this is a game changer. To the point of making it no longer a crisis. Why the delays? I also don't think this is nearly as contagious when latent than when strong, and it is weakening as it spreads. These would explain a lot of things.
  6. LOL! Yeah she was all "okay we're done here.."
  7. Sad that they are so expensive. I know this is really petty considering what we are going through now, but I really wish they could have expanded the color palette of these houses. The colors are generally so bland and repetitious. I am not talking about "hey we need some neon pink!" or anything but really they could have a bit more color. My only real complaint-otherwise they are great infill. *And I hope we/the economy get over this in a year or two and these projects can keep on coming.
  8. To all of the people who think they may have had COVID-19 earlier this year and had a minor illness-I hope you did and are over this and have immunity. Maybe your antibodies could help those who have not had it yet-if we can ever get the TESTING!!!! that we need!!!! The testing aspect of this pandemic has been abysmal. We need to do better! We are shutting whole segments of the economy down but we can't get a segment oriented to nothing but testing-producing tests for the disease, establishing who has it/who has had it-especially apparently with so many asymptomatic people out there who have plasma with antibodies that could save lives. This is a serious dropped ball people.
  9. I wonder if we should have a separate thread for notable people who have/who have succumbed to COVID-19? Otherwise it will all get lost in here or different threads(entertainment, politics, sports, etc.)? Maybe a thread also for people one here who may end up having it or know people who have it? As it has evolved this thread can get very busy. Just and idea..what do people think? *RIP to Adam Schlesinger. He was way too young to die from something like this.
  10. ^ Gosh I sure wonder why that interview ended so abruptly....
  11. Damn. ROLLINGSTONE.COM Fountains of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger Dead at 52 From Coronavirus https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/fountains-of-waynes-adam-schlesinger-dead-obituary-coronavirus-975786/?fbclid=IwAR1YibN4JlVxhvZHHU0ASDI66I4gRTwb2HMGXDjw4E8gh3GafWdFfSIAWa0
  12. Where I went, SSU, is already back down to the enrollment level it was at when I was there in the late '90s/early 2000s after peaking in 2009-2010. People look at P-town and are like "No way will I find a job here unless it is at the hospital/middle school/MRDD/bar."
  13. Prosecutors: Engineer deliberately ran train off tracks in attempt to smash the USNS Mercy https://abc7.com/officials-engineer-tried-to-smash-train-into-usns-mercy/6069395/
  14. But, things that places like UC is doing with its innovation district or other urban area campuses can be a little more insulated because some of the university housing is going to be repurposed to young professional housing for those who work in some of the emerging tech companies in the incubators. The places that are going to get killed are the smaller liberal arts schools in small cities and rural areas. If there are not employment drivers in the city to keep alumni there, there is no way to absorb a 20% reduction in students. State schools like Miami and OU will be fine but will still struggle with some dip in enrollment. Being state schools help out there.
  15. County officials are predicting a 50-80% decline in sales tax revenue during the shut-down. We are going to see massive layoffs and difficulty in making bond payments. Watch them intentionally default on the Paul Brown Stadium bonds, for maximum impact.
  16. All in the name of Supermax security levels in the buildings.
  17. Agreed, except tons of college students are having their luxury apartments funded by living or deceased grandparents. This phenomenon didn't exist to the degree it does today during Gen X's heyday or certainly before. Meanwhile, we're seeing huge mortgage forbearance predictions:
  18. You mean like old used copies? I don't know if the Governor's Office is going to be too impressed with a stack of 3.5" floppies in a box. I don't think you can even get physical copies of Windows 10 or MS Office.
  19. Seems like a good place to film a Tik Tok later in the year.
  20. X

    Coronavirus Pandemic

    The thing is, they could easily add those things back into their selection, and --Bam!-- "essential".
