13 The sea otter cam that was linked a day or so ago from the Monterey Aquarium is quite relaxing.
The buggers seem to be happy messing around in the water.

There were for me, but then Inspector did something or other in settings (Chrome) and they are all gone. Pretty sure I can't go back to watching with commercials at this point.

19 A friend of mine's backyard looks like that. He's a vet, and people give him animals all the time. He has tortoises, red deer, an emu, kangaroos, a few dogs, chickens, and pot bellied pig. When the kids were little, we would visit the "zoo."

All camelids spit but alpacas are usually quite docile and non-agressive. I'd expect to see that from a llama if the dog was a stranger since llamas are actually used as guard animals since unlike dogs they don't require different food than their charges.

I think the opposite. The boxer fears the alpaca and the alpaca wants to stomp on it once or twice.

The Champion Farters of the Dog World.


Worse than vegans and vegetarians, who also fart almost constantly.


Maggie should've let loose and the alpaca would've keel over dead.

45 The flu Manchu has really opened my eyes to how social media truly perpetuates mental illness. I am resolving to completely go cold turkey from it and never look back.

Sad, for people like me that communicate better online, at its inception it was a novelty and a great way to connect with people beyond your social circle. Now its a disease.

Update on those two daughters of my mother's friend who are stuck in India.

The mother said it's in God and the State Dept's hands now. The girls are okay right now, but when they're going to get out is not clear. She said State said they are about 1000 Americans in the same boat stuck in India.

Note that India went full law of the jungle to foreigners when the balloon went up.

97 Evening all. Just got off the conference call put on by the JPMorgan Private Wealth Advisory Team on what the CARES Act means to small and medium businesses.

The long and the short of it is, if you run a small business, get with Small Business Administration immediately. They will shepard much of the loans and grants authorized by this act and can help you navigate the application processes. Some loans will be forgivable - others will not be but terms seem generous.

There are also a load of IRS regs that have been temporarily suspended to ease costs, penalties and reporting for those impacted businesses.

Also, force majeure is in play for many of the contracts you are under obligation to fulfill (if you negotiated your paper intelligently). Check it out with your company's leadership, lenders, suppliers and legal guys.

We now return you to our regularly scheduled Quarantine Cafe.

179 The Islamic revolution in 1979 signified the final inversion of an hourglass of stability in Saudi Arabia. Freed from a Pahlavi monarchy that bore many similarities to its Saudi analogue (wealth, relative modernity, political and social stability, comity with the West), the sudden Islamic overthrow and return of Islamic fundamentalism revealed to the Saudi state the precarious nature of its own rule in an *umma* that seemed willing--and quite able--to shrug itself free of the West, of the satrapy, of a vestigial, anachronistic monarchy. to its discredit, the Kingdom does not appear to hav eused the intervening 35 years prudently with respect to regime security and endurance.

210 Yeah, as I noted earlier, Garcetti, never to be confused with even a marginally intelligent public figure, will be "adjusting" his schedule, probably significantly. Once there's no acceleration in new cases (and acute care capacity has not been overwhelmed, the specific goal of the shutdown so far), a corner will be turned, and a much reduced level of restrictions will likely be introduced.

And this will follow what is likely to be a big relaxation (with some inbound travel limits, perhaps) on huge parts of the country, maybe by Monday. Trump said they'd be finalizing a system, maybe with "level" ratings, this weekend.

Neighbor in commercial and mortgage finance said only client group he worries might have trouble here are some doctor-owned diagnostic businesses (high fixed cost, reduced business flow) - most others are going pretty strong, hardly a hiccup.

But this reminds me, there was a hilarious to-and-fro from the LA County sheriff cretin about closing gun stores, need to see where that comedy sits at the moment.

They even fomented revolt in Iraq as part of this. And of course Syria, as unoccupied France, was sketchy. Favorite most obscure naval battle of the war - Royal Navy vs. French off Lebanon.

Headline:
Cuomo: Not sure if closing all businesses, keeping everyone home was 'the best public health strategy'

https://tinyurl.com/u92tzfn

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that his stay-at-home order for the entirety of New York State was "probably not the best public health strategy."

In a press conference in Albany, Cuomo said the smartest way forward would be a public health strategy that complemented a "get-back-to-work strategy."

"What we did was we closed everything down. That was our public health strategy. Just close everything, all businesses, old workers, young people, old people, short people, tall people," said Cuomo. Every school closed, everything."

"If you rethought that or had time to analyze that public health strategy, I don't know that you would say quarantine everyone," Cuomo admitted. "I don't even know that that was the best public health policy. Young people then quarantined with older people was probably not the best public health strategy because the younger people could have been exposing the older people to an infection."


Well, duh.

They even fomented revolt in Iraq as part of this. And of course Syria, as unoccupied France, was sketchy. Favorite most obscure naval battle of the war - Royal Navy vs. French off Lebanon.

---------------

There was a revolt in Iraq. But Syria was under Vichy control at the time, and Vichy Admiral Darlan allowed the Germans to make use of French infrastructure in Lebanon and Syria. A serious revolt would have been counterproductive at that time (1941).

Interestingly, in response to Darlan's actions, the British launched an invasion of the region. The troops were a typical mix of Commonwealth units... and Free French. As a result, during the campaign, Free French and Vichy French units came into conflict with each other. In many instances, one side or the other was reluctant to fight their French opponents (particularly on the Free French side). But there were plenty of other battles in which French troops were in direct conflict with each other.

He's not quitting, but one person has jumped in to run against him for his reelection campaign. There may be others. He runs again this year, after completing his first four years. He has done very well, but upset some of the local power structure.

His opponents are using Gresham's Law to try and remove him. I and others will do out very best to keep him in office.

Thanks for asking.

I myself may be unopposed for reelection this year. I am sovereign in my smaller domain. When I ran the first time in 2016, I was the only one of my type in the entire county (1 of 17) with opposition. I won my election by 56 votes. What the hell was I thinking?

I have lowered the tax part of the mill levy I control; twice. I believe I have the best managed of these 17 entities in the county. And no one knows.

373 The big problem for the left with this whole situation is:

1. They need to be on the opposite side as Trump.

2. They have to be right when no one knows what the best option is.

3. If they guess wrong, they might be held responsible.



So they have resorted to saying Trump is wrong but giving no details about what he is wrong about or he should be doing.





I think you should be able to win an argument with most of those on
the Left these days by simply requiring them to define their terms.

She found out being a royal is a lot different that being a Hollywood A-lister.

Royals get a lot of perks, but they are also expected to represent the country and do work. They have to do shit like show up in Podunk and do publicity for things like children's hospitals and charities like that.

It's not about them, but it is really is about the needy children.

And he was short on positions that would be killed by shutting down everything.

Now, if it's any indication, Ackman has taken that $2B and is now going long, looks like.

468 @449She did a little porn, too. Obviously, the royal family knew all about her background pre-wedding.

That's the only thing that explains why she hasn't been kicked to the curb long ago--this was a Charles scheme, and now that its blown up they can't figure out how to get out of it.

477 The Imperial College guy did revise/tweak his model to produce less stupid projections, but mostly for the mitigation strategy cases rather than "do nothing" case. BUT the "do nothing" case was always a stupid, more or less mathematical exercise with zero basis in reality since it functionally equivalent to assuming that people would just keep stepping over the stacks of bodies in the street to go the pub with nary a thought of even popping into the loo to wash their hands.

However, that prick knew exactly what would happen when he included the "do nothing" result in his paper as the base case rather than something actually plausible. That eye popping figure is the news hook that'll get picked up and will get him on the BBC and in front of Parliament.

It is not conspiracy, I heard if from the head of accounts at the hospital and way before we were in such a "divided country".

509 I am feeling pretty sure that the urgent care where I am working at in SoCal currently, saw COVI-19 patients as early as the last week in December 2019.
I base my theory on the number of patients that presented with Hallmark symptoms of flu, yet tested negative for both Type-A and Type -B. And there were a number of them through the second week of January 2020. So many in fact, that I began to doubt my own testing methodology.(How can this person be negative...they have the flu for Pete's Sake)

Yet we treated them as flu because clinically...they were.

The entire world on government....not self imposed shelter/lockdown?

If we could quickly draw blood from those in the last 3 months that tested negative for A-B but were diagnosed as "Flu-Like-Symptoms" and did "IMMUNO-ASSAYS to detect the presence of COVI-19 antibodies (meaning they had it and their auto-immune systems killed it.)

Now plug THOSE numbers into the modeling.....bet we are on the back side of the Bell Curve.....not the front.
