40 Just looking at the US Covid stats is a surreal experience.


US leads the world in every category except recovery rate, 4 pct recovery rate.


Virtually nobody is tracked, nobody recovers.


We've blown past the "models" in regards to fatalities, over 5000, most of them in NYC.


And yet you don't see any pictures of massive lines out side hospitals nor pictures of overflowing hospital beds.


This is all happening in silence and in the dark.


It's crazy.

Weird. I spent three weeks on the Mercy back in '90. For a guy that had
been deployed and living in tents for 8 months, it was like being on a
friggin' cruise ship. Lots more females than you would see in an
infantry battalion, to boot. And better chow. And we also make port call
(army guy, is that the right term?) in Bahrain, where there was a Navy
base and BEEER! Doc loaned me $20 and I drank rotgut $1/beer Filipino
beer that tasted like formaldehyde but dammit it was beer and when I took
the liberty boat back to the Mercy doc had to undress me and pour my
drunk ass back into my bed. I was there for kidney stones and had
undergone two Ureteroscopies on the Mercy, unsuccessfully. So I was
peeing pure red blood...until I went on shore leave. When I got back,
even though I couldn't undress myself, I was peeing clear. So, yay for
that.


I did, however, repay her the $20 when I got back to my unit.

Seeing this written out, that was the most Moronic Mercy Stay Evar.

I believe that Black Napkins, live, is my new favorite song.

Zappa was never real big in the PacNW for some reason, got drowned out by the British Invasion.

The hustlers were as awful as you would expect - did not like being challenged one bit - even had to bring on their own white lady lackey to explain to the other white ladies that weren't buying their shit to please shut up and buy their shit. Painfully hilarious.

93 How do you housebreak a new puppy? Ms K and I got a corgi, 4 months old in a week, from a national chain pet store that likely had her in the spacious "For Sale" display crate for between 4 and 5-1/2 weeks.

The problem is that the dog is so used to eliminating indoors that she seems mystified by the coarse St Augustine grass we have outside. So all she wants to do is lie in in and dig her nose into it.

And she sneaks off indoors and does her stuff. And we are taking her out as soon as we open her crate. Ten times daily last two days.

We are losing this battle.

100 Hi, everyone. Thanks for the ONT, MisHum. And honestly, thanks for the lack of Zappa. I don't hate the guy or his music, really--I've tried A LOT to appreciate what obviously resonates with a huge number of folks, and I just fail. I think he is (or, I guess, was) a first-rate producer and arranger, but his songs do little for me. (I liked "We're Only In It For The Money" though.)

Hope everyone is doing great tonight. I watched a movie I hadn't seen since it was in theaters--"The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother" and it was a lot of fun. Funny, and very clever, with only a bit of the expected crude humor. It's not laugh out loud, but it's funny and sweet.

Hope you're all in good spirits tonight.

101 40- This us what I've been asking. Where are the pictures of the overflowing hospitals? Video of people waiting in the ER, of anxious family waiting in the parking lots. We have pictures and video of every natural disaster and mass shooting, sometimes before it's even finished. The press could really convince people we are at the end of the world if they showed us the chaos. We have not been shown one hospital, clinic doctors office or triage center. I have a bad feeling about this.

Actually, I had a cardigan in the dry cleaners in the building, so my boss got it, boxed it and the rest of my cube stuff, gave it to the big bosses' Executive Assistant for her to wait outside visitor control.

109 Evening all.
I'm in the online retail cremation urn business and have been for roughly 17 years. When my wife brought this idea to me I thought she was crazy but I played along. At first it was slow, like a hobby, but eventually I was able to quit my job and we do ok. We work mostly from home with occasional warehouse and engraver visits so we know how to isolate.

The winter is our best time for sales due to, well I don't really know for sure but can guess just the regular flu and people that hang on until Christmas.

Business has been up for the last 3 months due to some advertising changes we made in December (meaning pay google more) but March was a record month by a lot.

We take a lot of calls and most people want to talk during normal times and they still do and will often tell us a story about how someone died if it's something other than normal causes. Some of them are crazy stories and we even had one lady last fall that was doing the assisted suicide thing that called us. A nice lady to the end but that was a first.

Anyway, we have been getting the death stories as normal but so far not one wuflu tale.

MisHum was just trying to do his best this last month, bringing musical icon Frank Zappa and the best of his works to his ONT readers, in good faith.

And what happened? He was mocked, derided, hissed at, and slandered.

Because he was trying to educate his fellow ONTers.


Remember, he could have done Yoko instead of Zappa.

I hope you Zappa haters are happy.

No more Zappa, and apparently, no more MisHum.

"He and I, instead of speaking by phone, can stand six feet apart, right on this stage. We'll use the camera crew, just them, right there, only them, none of you, and Joe and I can discuss things and see what he wants to contribute to this Wuhan situation."

145 Our state says it is too complicated to show recoveries on their website, so we will never know the true numbers.

Basically the "Confirmed" and "Recovered" entries are eye wash. What you should care about is "Deaths" and the population in the county it was registered. With the last census nearly ten years ago, the population numbers are just WAGs too.

Unfortunately, there is a lot of incompetence and fraud in those numbers too. (mostly redistributing deaths)

158 93 How do you housebreak a new puppy? Ms K and I got a corgi, 4 months old in a week, from a national chain pet store that likely had her in the spacious "For Sale" display crate for between 4 and 5-1/2 weeks.


hey Les! congrats! Corgis are such sweet dogs

it sounds like she's trying, if she's going "off somewhere" to eliminate.

it's ok that she's used to going indoors, you just need to shift her thinking a bit? I'd recommend crating her, and starting out with having her go on scented puppy pads - or not scented - anyway those are nice b/c if you train her to go on them, you can just sort of move them slowly towards the door...then out the door...see what I mean?

but keep the little girl crated when you can't watch/work with her. that's really the best thing. she should be ok in there for max of x months old plus one hour - so if she's 4 months, she should be ok (at night) for 5 hrs. immediately take her out of the crate by carrying her outside to where you want her to go (or to the pad if you decide to try them). she should go right away (use a voice command like "Go Potty!") and just praise the heck out of her.

the key to house training is close monitoring, timing, crating, and LOTS of praise! and patience.

girls tend to be easier, they really want to do the right thing!

good luck with her

166 93 How do you housebreak a new puppy?

==

4 months is a bit old but here's what I'd suggest

one common trick is to tether ger to her human - that is, leash her to yourself so you keep a constant eye on her
this will help you read each other

another is confine her to a smaller space.- don't let her roam the house - just the room her crate is in, maybe

when you go outside, let her take her time and explore
at some point she will eventually pee - reward her by praising her effusively , saying a magic word (maybe "potty" frequently)
"good puppy potty! " etc - totally overdo it do she gets how happy you are

if it looks like she's gonna potty indoors interrupt and whisk outside

Recovered officially means over the disease, no longer infected and contagious. Outcomes there could be alive or dead.

The recovered numbers you see being reported are so inaccurate as to be meaningless. The only ones they publish are when someone has been officially declared recovered and put in some database.

Only a small fraction of those will actually be noted and recorded at this stage.

186 Les Kinetic,
Don't let her out of your site. I do this by keep them on a light, thin leash attached to a person at all times. Yes it can be a pain. Also attach a bell or something noise on the door handle hanging low enough for her to reach. When you do take her out show her the bell and ring it with her paw or nose so she makes the connection of ringing the bell to go out. Once outside make sure you watch her and she starts to go, say the word, "potty, potty, good potty" or something like that over and over while she's going. As soon as she's done praise her enthusiastically and give her a special little treat reserved just for going potty. If you keep her attached to you she can't sneak off, so if she does try to go in the house someone should be right there the reprimand her in the act. It's a hassle but it does work.

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

Hospitals and clinics around here want us to do virtual visits if we have any symptoms. In most cases, they'll just tell us to stay home, and isolate. They'll only test if the symptoms are severe.

So, the total numbers based on testing are going to be the more severe cases, and will completely skew the numbers.

YES! Les if you pick the pup up - usually - they will stop going. especially females

just if she is sniffing around, pick her up! take her right out! praise her like crazy for going outside!

they do sell "scent" that you can spray on areas you may want her to go. those can help sort of signal her to go there.

203 I keep hearing stories about hospital nurses and ER workers being laid off due to lack of work.

Posted by: Ladyl at April 01, 2020 10:17 PM (TdMsT)



So I was scrolling facebook today and on a Breitbart article was this poster talking about her daughter who works in a hospital. The daughter says they're being denied overtime. They deserve hazard pay during this.

Well first off if you're a nurse then your pay is your hazard pay. There are plenty of things in the hospital that could wind up infecting you and causing you plenty of problems. You could contract a flu you weren't vaccinated against. You could slip and accidentally get an infected needle poked into you.

But now lets move on to the "denied overtime." Almost makes it sound like they're working them long hours but not paying them overtime. She got called on that a bit and then responded that oh they meant they're working an 8 hour shift and being sent home. The hospital isn't letting the work extra hours. Meaning that the hospital is actually being responsible. It's not overworking the staff to the point they could make mistakes. And that because they're doing that now if there actually is a point where they need them to work a bit longer because shit really does hit the fan they're not already pre burned out because they've already spent weeks working long hours when it actually wasn't neccessary.

246 In-person clinic visits and non-critical surgeries are all being severely restricted, so practice and hospital revenues are taking a steep nosedive. Now we are seeing extreme cost-cutting measures being put into place. Clinical personnel are being platooned, ostensibly to reduce overall risk of exposure. They are being payed for the time off currently, but that may change. Payroll is a major outlay and we doctors are being told to expect pay cuts. Departments are cutting all the fat, no one is traveling; all meetings are cancelled anyway. Just pointing out that this huge contraction in the medical sector is going to take months to recover.

The poor dog has been taught to go indoors. My two suggestions: Duckduckgo "how to retrain dog that has learned to potty indoors".
Also, after she comes back indoors, keep her on a leash and with you anytime that she is indoors and not in her crate. It CAN be done. When I first moved in with my dementia father, I kept my beagle on a leash indoors, because my father would open the garage door and stand there looking outside. My beagle would have gotten loose.

277 I'm looking at some coming off lease. But, not a Chevy guy so I don't know much about them. I drive my vehicles until the doors fall off - are they, generally, a solid buy?
Posted by: Tonypete at April 01, 2020 10:47 PM (Y4EXg)

My newest one is an '08, so I cannot say much about the newer models. I think they still use the same six-liter engine as the '08, or an upgraded version of it. It's a good engine.

Suburbans are a full-size SUV built on a pickup frame, so they are solid. They have a pretty comfortable ride. My '96 Suburban, which I have with me here, can swallow 4X8 sheets of plywood or sheetrock lying flat, and the doors still close. The '08 cannot do that; they goobered up the folding second-row seat. I don't know if more recent models corrected that glitch.

281 Totally apropos of nothing, were any of you fans of The Ben Stiller Show on Fox like 30 years ago? It was like my favorite show ever at the time.

A lot of the humor is tied to 80's and early 90's pop culture, as expected, but what surprised me rewatching it is how utterly devoid it was of the usual immature leftist claptrap bullshit.

It was just funny for funny's sake. Even that commie whore Janeane Garafolo was funny. And honestly Ben Stiller is an incredibly underrated impressionist and overall talent. They put a ton of effort into the show, and Fox gave it a pretty raw deal. Airing it against 60 Minutes (when that mattered) and then stuff like moving it and not advertising the correct time. It was crazy.

I recently came across a small collection of "unaired sketches" and several of *those* were subtly pushing leftist bullshit (ha ha, look at the hillbillies!!!! ha ha, working in a restaurant is like, so unfair!!!). Seemed like the influence of David Cross who made a few appearances and is of course a giant hateful leftard douchebag. Kind of made me glad now that it only lasted one season. But it was good.

Nah. NHS is a religion there. Everyone bitches about it in the UK, but if you actually decide to, say, privatize it and tell the Brits that it is time to grow up and find a way to pay for their own doctors, the country WILL declare nuclear war on itself for the tantrums its "adults" will throw.

Seriously. EVERY BLOODY WEEK that PMQs take place, MPs bitch bitch bitch bitch bitch about NHS. And of course to the Labour party, the ONLY thing that will fix NHS is, well, only the entire GDP of the UK poured into the thing.

(I liken the UK's NHS to US public schools. There is a parallel private system that delivers goods far superior to the NHS but you STILL have to pay money to get it, and oh by the way, you are still paying taxes for a failed NHS. Much as in public schools here, whether or not you use them for your kids - or not have kids at all - you are forced to pay heavily for a crappy, inferior product, even though a privately run system runs in parallel and does a much better job of educating children.)

363 Eggs: a friend has hens, and he says that when fresh, eggs will not harden when boiled. They keep them on the counter for a couple of weeks before refrigeration. then they go through the usual AA, A, and whatnot, which spans weeks. Eggs actually have a pretty long shelf life. And the best by date you see on cartons is not an expiration date per se.

A Portland alt-weekly today interviewed a hospital respiratory tech (respiratory tech!) who has had his hours cut to 30 hours a week, due to lack of work.

Oregon has had 690 identified cases of CCP virus, so 150 hospitalizations at most. The hospitals have been clearing out the non-urgent cases, canceled all elective surgeries, and people are avoiding the ER's.

That's probably from egg laying until spoiled. Depending on the processing facility, they can possibly sit in the refrigerated storage for a couple weeks as well so that will eat into the shelf life.

In partial defense of Portland hospitals, if you are expecting to admit a bunch of CCP virus patients, clearing out the other patients protects the other patients from infection, since hospitals are excellent transmitters of infectious diseases. It is sort of ironic that hospital respiratory techs are having their hours cut, however.

405 Eggs can last weeks to months depending on the source. Store bought don't have as long a shelf life as farm/yard eggs. A simple test is putting the egg in water. If it sinks to the bottom it very fresh. If it hangs in the water or breaks the surface a little it's good. If it floats high above the water it's an old egg and probably iffy. Fresh eggs have a small air sac so sink. The older the egg the larger the egg sac and the higher it will float.

First, I've gone multiple years without getting any kind of bug.

Second, when I do get a bug, it tends to hit my nose and sinuses.

The two colds I got this winter were lung-centric. Plus, the time frame between the two were weirdly short. I never ran a fever, never was short of breath, but there were a couple of days that I was dragging ass. And for a week or so after feeling better, I was still coughing up lung-butter.

So. There it is. That might have been Wuhan. or not.

well but events need to be planned way way out. and there's literally no traveling AT ALL now and who knows when it will resume?

it sucks but there it is. large events this summer are going to all be cancelled - no time for logistics and planning to be done.

am kind of hoping if this things turns around quickly some of the things that get cancelled will be "on the fly" brought back or sort of half-assed. I used to work large events and I know what goes into them - you're in the midst of planning for july/august events right now. and you need to be onsite for some things. no travel means no events.

Long ago in office machine sales, there was a fellow commission salesman that would say to the office, "have a nice weekend, you all!".

On Tuesday, when leaving the office.

And he would be gone the rest of the week.

And he kept his job, because it was commission sales and he was nearly at the top of the closed sales list every month.

Survive this?

The old bat has survived three different cancers, one of them stage four.


And at 82, she apparently has a CrossFit routine that would put Matt Fraser to shame.


Her blood is probably composed of pure bat virus and she is immortal.

507 457 ... "What's your go to funny movie or shows you can still get that you enjoy?"

Fenelon,
Groucho Marx was as funny on TV as he ever was in the movies. If you can find any videos of the Jack Benny shows give them a try. Benny was a master of comedic timing. More recently, check Youtube for videos by Jeanne Robertson. She is an older lady and her stand up routines will leave you holding your sides from laughing.

508 You Bet Your Life was funny. On one show Groucho asked a contestant how old she was. She said, "I'm approaching 40." He asked, "From which direction?'

Guy and his gorgeous gal neighbor took a walk outside near a crowd and went home.

Guy started sweating and dry coughing. He was afraid that he got Covad19 and was scared.

Gorgeous girl neighbor called a doctor friend of hers,who happened to be an infection specialist, and asked if there was anything she could do, because he was looking worse and worse every hour.


"Look", the doc told her, "it sounds like your boyfriend has the worst kind, and the only effective treatment for this strain seems to originate from France. The treatment is that you are going to have to give him a blow job five times a day."

So she hangs up, silent and a tear starts down her cheek.

"What did the doctor say?"

Example: In Mississippi he has a throwaway line after an encounter with a thug and his friend hits the guy. When walking away Fields says "Had he been a bigger man, I would have hit him myself."

This is humor you have to pay attention to and it works on a big screen, but people are not as attentive when watching on TV with distractions.

They were engineering virus for bio war. They claimed they were doing this defensively, but a bio weapon would involve a brutal bug (like this) and a defensive vaccine, so mostly all research is "defense" since bugs mostly exist in nature and the weapon part is where you vaccinate your people before release. Possibly though, they engineered the bug as well to make it spread quicker.

The going theory is that they were injecting it into bats to study, had an accidental release (which was common in wuhan) and it got out. My theory is that someone who was infected was asymptomatic so they didn't realize it even got out until weeks later. j

Most of these pieces are proven and documented. They do do bio warfare research. They do engineer virus for more transmissibility, they do work with bats, they do have a lot of accidental releases, and they did have one in summer 2018 where several researchers were exposed to bat blood and urine.

I am staying with Tucker's guess a couple of weeks ago.

Lots of Covad testing on animals in the Wuhan Lab. (Hmmm, where did they get the disease to test - perhaps a Canadian Lab?)

The important doctors and lab specialists do their work and go home.

The night janitors have to clean the place, of course, but the work to properly dispose of infected dead animals is time-consuming and a lot of extra work.

So, after midnight when nobody else is around, the janitors just chuck the dead bats, or dogs, or whatever animals have been infected, into the regular garbage with the rest of the stuff.

And it gets tossed in the regular trash, into the dumpsters.

Where the Chinese bums, starving, scrounge through the dumpster and say "YES! MEAT!!"

And then they walk through the city of Wuhan, coughing and sneezing at thousands of Chinese people walking down the street.

Of which, dozens, or hundreds, or thousands of those Chinese get on airplanes from Sept 19 to January 20 and fly all over the world. Like the USA, where hundreds of thousands of Chinese-Chinese (not Americans of Chinese descent) live now, or Italy, where hundreds of thousands of Chinese have moved for work.

Never believe something complicated and sinister, when good old fashioned laziness and stupidity can occur instead.

600 Yeah, I knew a woman who cheated on her husband for years. She had two kids and didn't have to work outside the home, even after both kids were in school. She eventually divorced hubby and got half of everything.

On the other hand, her married boyfriend was supposed to divorce his wife and marry her. He divorced his wife and didn't marry her. So she ended up with no one.

Posted by: nerdygirl at April 02, 2020 12:11 AM (+lVUW)
-------------------------

Knew somebody who's wife cheated on him with another guy, and of course both couples got divorced, and my friend lost his house and plenty more, but paid it all out in a lump sum. It's over now and he's remarried to a younger, much better woman in every way.

The ex-wife and her bf got married, and she's still working while the new husband hangs out all the time with his buddies, playing in a garage band. He's finding himself, after years of being locked in his loveless first marriage, etc.

It's hard not to laugh, the way she was played. First wife was probably glad to see the back of him.

I'm reminded of the plot during WWII to turn bats into a sort of 'smart incendiary' by kitting them up with little fire bombs on timers, then releasing them over Japanese cities where they would roost in buildings setting off thousands of small fires...

But, some of the bats escaped before the mission whilst fused, returned to base, and burned the place down...

Now, at its worst the Wuhan virus is brutal but we are left to trust rather untrustworthy experts in putting our lives on hold and our economy in the dumpster, that it will be worth it. We've got to flatten the curve, you know.

Fine.

I, we, and most Americans are going along with this for the most part and for now.

However, the point and downside of flattening the curve is to buy time, so they better make damn good use of it. This virus will be waiting again in the fall, maybe sooner and this country's health infrastructure better damn well be ready for it next time. There better be enough masks, gowns hydroxychloroquine and zpak to go around, to keep from needing all those extra ventilators.

Because there's no fucking way we should have to be under house arrest again, ever.
How many millions have to have their entire lives, incomes, aspirations, hobbies, friendships and futures put on hold and at risk? Again?

625 People are calling for the release of the lab records because most of the incriminating stuff is well known, but the proof is hidden.

Knowns
China is doing bio warfare research, although they claim it is "defensive"
China, and the wuhan lab were working with bats
The wuhan lab was sloppy. They accidentally released SARS twice (!)
The had an accidental exposure of several researchers in summer 2019
They publish the genomes of much of the viruses they find in bats, but did not publish this one.
They were working on inserting ACE2 receptor ability into bat coronaviruses

Suspicious
One researcher who was exposed has disappeared. Many think she is dead.
Why were records destroyed and (reportedly) one building razed?
How did PLA know how serious this was so quickly that they shutdown local Naval academy?

Hidden
In that release, did people get sick? who? what symptoms?
Have they been tested for antibodies to Kung Flu?
What was PLA involvement in lab. Type of research and goals.
Were they injecting engineered viruses into bats?

Unknowns (TBD)
Was an engineered virus involved in the 2019 leak?
What are the sequences of all the engineered viruses.

Now it may turn out that a sick bat flew 900km (they are not native to region) and bit some fishmonger in wuhan. Or it may be that they were just sampling natural bats and accidentally got infected. Or it may be that they designed a virus, accidentally released it, and then covered it up.


But that last sentence is key - whatever else happened, this is so bad because of the cover up and lies.

Tucker is on with the delayed repeat of his earlier show, and is interviewing Adam Smith, D WA, who happens to be my US Rep.


Smith is lecturing, ranting on what we as a country do not have, as opposed to what we do have, and specifically depreciating FOX news and Tucker for somehow mis-reporting and being part of the problem.

Apparently, Smith believes that CNN, MSNBC, and CBS are the accurate ones, and FOX is mis-reporting the facts.


Smith is a fucking jackass piece of shit. He is a motherfucking liar that the Chinese Communist government can be proud of.


Proof? Because he quotes them so well, while degenerating Trump, and the national effort to solve Covad.

Twenty-five years ago, Mar 31, just before Midnight - which may have still been Standard Time back then - our little family of five, having fled the flaming wreckage of Chicago, arrived in Oklahoma.

None of the kids have indicated any interest in moving back. So, for all my bad decisions and failings, there's that.

In celebration, tonight, we had dinner at daughter & SiL2B's house, along with in-town son.

680 As for research, a likely scenario is that they design a virus like sars, but easier to transmit. The goal would be that it is locally devastating, like sars, but could be vaccinated against.

This could be used in any number of scenarios, but a likely one would be to infect an adversary to disrupt their ability to defend against attack, and then take over. You only have to vaccinate the front line troops since only they would be exposed. It could be used against a carrier group, an Island nation, or even an advanced major country since it could be deployed without proof of source and so not casus belli. This is key since the CCP always tries to avoid casus belli and such a weapon would be highly valued in their strategy.

The goal would not be global pandemic. The experience with sars is that a contagion can be easy to control outside the immediate region. Once intl. travel is halted it does not spread. Sars was nice because people did not (mostly) infect others before they had symptoms, or after being cured. It was also a well understood family of virus with high potential for vaccine (not developed since sars was eliminated as a threat before hand.)

So everyone in the field could understand an evil regime using sars and bat coronavirus as a starting point. They could also understand adding the ACE2 receptor capability to make it transmit much easier. Really, the main problem with sars was not that it was too easy to control, but that it took a bit of effort to get. The ideal weapon could be released in vapor over target and the next week everyone is sick.

The problem appears to be two-fold. Not saying it *was* engineered, but the difference between this and what someone would want to engineer is as follows. By attacking the ACE2 receptor it is now in the respiratory system. that makes it easier to get, but also makes it easier to give, meaning an infected person can now transmit before symptoms are obvious. This is very different animal since now it is no longer easy to keep the infection localized. Control (in my theoretical scenario) would be based on keeping people with symptoms from traveling and when found under control. That is no longer enough.

The second problem is that this virus has many asymptomatics. This is something which can not be controlled short of an impervious barrier to travel erected before anyone gets past. IOW, it can not be controlled.

What I describe is a theoretical path toward a weapon (sars like virus with ACE2 characteristics) and how the kung flu deviates from an ideal weapon. Of importance is that those deviations are not obvious before starting down the path of development. That means that it is logical that this was an R&D project gone wrong. It is not proof, but importantly it is "consistent."


(Oh, I forgot to add to my list above that China also WAS developing vaccines for the kung flu on a timeline which appears to have started before Dec. 2019. If true, damning.)

Also since LA has been an entertainment town since the 20s or 30s, not sure it was ruined by that, so much. Lots of wheels turning there. Death of aerospace, persecution of manufacturing by CA, NAFTA, mass illegal migration, nation-wide pathologies like lawfare, rule by courts, apathetic/lazy voters, hijacking of education.

And I know it's popular here to imagine CA ruined by outsiders but every single moonbat or coastal clueless lib I know is a native.

697 I think the modeling is pure crap.

Problem is everyone seemed to ignore the Diamond Princess, and the Korean incident that showed (a) that it is more transmissible than anyone assumed, and (b) not everyone gets sick.

What good are models in such a case?

I know modeling (not epidemics) and I think these modelers are all used to modeling history, not in real time.

I was clued in to their cluelessness when they started using Ro to predict. Ro describes a model and not reality. It can not describe reality. It can only describe a curve of what has already happened.

They seem to be getting better though.

698 Gentlemen this is democracy manifest (hereafter GTDM for efficiency) - was just talking with the Boss over dinner about how the US and others will handle the public side of this once we're past the kinetic, deadly phase.

The intel analysts (in this case, the technical side that you touched on will be much of the question, so "open source" scientists and docs will be part of the "team", as the biological aspects of this critter will be known to all) will have to give an assessment: engineered, or nay?

Trump has settled on the somewhat bizarre (but entertaining, and probably effective) schtick of a permanent charm offensive towards Beijing ("Xi, love that guy, he's the best, a friend, I mean he's really amazing").

But what will be the first concrete, important decision that will be made that touches on the virus debacle?

Resuming admissions to travelers from China. That will be an affirmative, concrete action. Trying to imagine the memo to POTUS that recommends this, and lays out the biomedical and public health rationale. It will imply some kind of conclusion as to man-made, and also of course a serious final call on China's reliability on this (Trump has given indirect implicit thumbs-down on this question in the briefings, when asked about Chinese #s).

But of course, since sports is cancelled, the host and the callers can't help but bring it up. Generally it's the same pablum, we'll be back stronger, blah blah blah. But one caller said that "500,000 unemployed is better than 500,00 dead", and it was all I could do to not smash the radio. If some of us are guilty of thinking that there's an overreaction going on, there are plenty more who are blithely downplaying the effects on the economy. 500,000 unemployed? There were 3.2 MILLION claims last week. And God knows how many more this week. The return of MLB or the other sports is gonna be way at the bottom of the worry list by that point.

My point was only that it will present Trump with a fairly early decision. Cotton and Rubio can Bad Cop from the Hill, the compromised "press" and think tanks can continue driving their semis through the gigantic gaps in the FARA - but all that jibber-jabber won't necessarily require any action or decision.

Back long ago the Japanese made all Christians disavow Christ or die. This was effective since Christians have integrity and would not easily go against conscience. They understood that their local power could not survive an invasion of foreign power (not getting into the merits,...)

Right now many 1st gen. Chinese are Chinese first. They, like another group I will not mention, see themselves as the first wave in a move which will lead to China taking over the world.

I say start with the students, but finish with anyone native to China. Make them make a choice. If they chose the US, they are on probation and can not travel to China, or communicate with family back home. Us or them, like the past immigrants had to chose when travel was on a boat and communication was airmail.

Then, let's build our own Chinese wall around China. Stop all travel, control all commerce, and control the internet pipe. For China, and any country in their grip. Us vs. Them. Just like the cold war, only this time we have to make the choice while in the past the soviets made it for us.

So I don't see much of that happening.

I'd settle for strict limits on Chinese national employment in technology or science - but even that is hard to imagine.

724 I saw the daily NYC mortality report early today, it was 70% with underlying conditions, with another 20% "pending" on that issue (awaiting more info).

Was trimming some 30-06 cases earlier, heard Old Yeller (Levin) on the radio, he was fulminating about this issue - he didn't know the term "co-morbidity", but that's what he was getting at.

NY/NJ set to peak (deaths, resource demands) next week - some states not projected to peak until mid/late May (!!).

If by mid-April, when the carnage is mostly already booked in NY/NJ - and peaking in MA - and it's looking like 90% of victims are *not* healthy people under 60, I can see selective modification/relaxation of distancing policies. Add therapies (cloroquine/zinc cocktail, others) that have a material effect on 1) rate of infected becoming acute 2) duration of acute care for those who recover, these changes become even more likely.

Have never thought the April 30 one-size-fits-all guidance would survive unmodified, until April 30. One (of several) reasons I've also found the apocalyptic economic panic unpersuasive.

If any are interested in the basic SIR equations, which model an epidemic, it's fairly easy with Scilab, which is a free open source alternative to MATLIB and similar. There's also a GNU clone, the name of which I forget.

Anyway, I dicked around last night and got a simple Scilab script running, and just cleaned it up a big tonight.

The following Scilab script will run the ODE solver and generate a plot.

Input parameters are at the top, R0 the basic transmission number, and Td, which is the time to recovery when someone is infectious. N is the number of people, and Tend is the end time. This will have to be adjusted depending on the width of the curves, which depend on the first parameters. Finally mo is the case mortality rate.

Results are split into two plot windows. First has four curves, blue is susceptible, green is infected, red is recovered, and black is cumulative dead.

The second plot contains the death rate. It's so much smaller in magnitude that a separate scale is needed to see it well.

Time unit is days.

I'll post the script in the next post.

728 Here's the Scilab script. Again, basic parameters are at the top, which can be played with to see how it affects the curves:

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

R0 = 4;
Td = 10;
N = 1000;
mo = 0.1;
Tend = 100;

function xdot = f(t, x)
xdot = [ -R0/Td * x(1)*x(2)/N; (R0*x(1)/N - 1)*x(2)/Td; x(2)/Td ]
endfunction

x0 = [N - 0.1; 0.1; 0];
t0 = 0
dt = 0.1
t = 0:dt:Tend;
t2 = 0:dt:Tend-dt;
x = ode(x0, t0, t, f);
dx = mo*diff(x(3,)/dt;
clf;

Thanks, I had not seen that.

This is very true and documented in English and Chinese. They were playing with these virus claiming to be working on vaccines. One study was under NIH grant, and the US panicked at the result and cut off funding. There is a lot of intrigue, with the stolen samples from Canada, and the work on adding the spike protein (for ace2 respiratory attack) and PLA involvement. None of that is disputed. None of it is proof, either.

Friend of mine works in the office of a large commercial/residential real estate company in NYC. She tells me how the Chinese 'students' going to school here plop down $75,000 one year up-front rent checks because they have no credit. Now who in China has that kind of money to spend here? Connected ChiCom families, that's who. She can't believe the amounts of money these 'students' drop on rent and tuition, not to mention day-to-day living expenses. But no one in our government blinks an eye or bothers to question who they are and why are they here.

You will understand that whenever the weather is favourable, waves of Wuhan virus, protected and promoted by their Media, often three or four hundred at a time, surge over this land, especially the promontory of New York, in the hope of attacking political and other objectives by daylight.

However, they are met by our fighter PDT squadrons and nearly always broken up; and their losses average three to one in machines and six to one in cable pilots.

GI covfefe is more like it. the good cooks used to save egg shells from breakfast, rinsed, and put them in the bottom of the 35 gallon pot to make the overnight coffee. (neutralizes the acid in it).

bring the 30 gallons to a boil, shut off the flame. stir the water clockwise, and pour the ground coffee in.

wait, then, as the circulation slows, counter pour cold water in to settle the grounds.

after that, keep the pot on just enough heat to keep it drinkable.

i was never near the late night LOGPAC, so i just dumped creamer, sugar and C-rat coffee on my tongue, and slugged canteen water after it.

True story.....

Took a break from work and went out to get 'esssentials' yesterday and decided to stop by the local mom and pop operated burger joint for lunch. It's literally a shack with a walk up window and picnic benches. People doing their best to stay 6 feet apart and not impede the traffic into/out of the gas station and garage it shares the lot with. Cash only and don't ask for anything special. Burger. Cheese. Bacon. Fries. Everything fresh from scratch, not a single Sysco food product in the kitchen.

The place was packed. People eating in their cars and trucks and listening to the radio. I did, in fact have a cheeseburger. With bacon. And a cold root beer.

Friend of mine works in the office of a large commercial/residential real estate company in NYC. She tells me how the Chinese 'students' going to school here plop down $75,000 one year up-front rent checks because they have no credit. Now who in China has that kind of money to spend here? Connected ChiCom families, that's who. She can't believe the amounts of money these 'students' drop on rent and tuition, not to mention day-to-day living expenses. But no one in our government blinks an eye or bothers to question who they are and why are they here.

The best things from China I have seen is stuff that went around the CCP filters. One guy was using traffic apps to measure street traffic compared to normal levels and another had internal output numbers for some manufacturers (American owned and actually shipping goods) in Wuhan. As of about 2-3 weeks ago, those numbers were in the 40-60% range. I haven't seen any updates.

==========

That was actually the secondary accusation, with the primary one being Kerry is advising the Iranian government and doing a terrible job of it. PDJT indicated he (Trump) wants to make a deal with the Iranians, and wants to offer them Wuhan Attack Virus help, but he thinks "they don't know how to start" making a deal with America because they are getting bad advice from Kerry. By implication he sort of accused Kerry of advising Iran to persist in terror and nuke research. Or maybe that's my accusation.

Also, she will be in Detroit this evening for a Q&A session with media at 7:00pm and it will be live-streamed on 94.7FM WCSX (and I imagine many other places).

Should be interesting to get her latest take on allowing the malaria drug for COVID-19 patients, especially after all the success it has had so far.

Also a rumor that she has thought about a 70-day 'stay-at-home' order.

My tiny little state actually does have a few distinct regions, the whole Providence Plantations and Rhode Island thing.

Up by Providence and the surrounding cities and towns is the hot spot for us with the really dense outbreaks. Down in the southern part of the state where there population is much less dense and there are natural barriers it's much lighter and then you get out to Block Island which is miles offshore there are 0 cases.

Sort of a visual representation of social distancing.

1015 Stunning Report Confirms China Had Hillary's Emails in Real Time

April 28, 2018

https://bit.ly/341wpNo

The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) in 2016 Charles McCullough III found an "anomaly on Hillary Clinton's emails going through their private server, and when they had done the forensic analysis, they found that her emails, every single one except four, over 30,000, were going to an address that was not on the distribution list," Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas said during a hearing with FBI official Peter Strzok."

It was going to an unauthorized source that was a foreign entity unrelated to Russia," he added.

Two officials with the ICIG investigator Frank Rucker and Attorney Janette McMillan met a number of times with the FBI to warn them. One of the FBI officials was Peter Strzok as the bureau's top counterintelligence official.

When ICIG investigator Frank Rucker spoke with Strzok, he nodded but was remarkably uninterested in what Rucker had to say, Gohmert said. [ ... ]

The breach was discovered in early 2015. They found the actual metadata that a "courtesy copy" was being sent to China. There was probably some phishing involved. From there, they embedded the code. It's something the Chinese are well-known for.

Fox News reported that the emails contained "operational intelligence," which is information about covert operations to gather intelligence as well as details about the assets and informants working with the U.S. government.

John Schindler confirmed the Fox News report. He wrote at The Observer: Discussions with Intelligence Community officials have revealed that Ms. Clinton's "unclassified" emails included Holy Grail items of American espionage. This included the true names of Central Intelligence Agency intelligence officers serving overseas under cover. Worse, some of those exposed are serving under non-official cover.

1044 628 Maybe the Chinese ones are bigger, but the only ones I've ever seen up close are tiny little things, considerably smaller than squirrels. There couldn't be more than a couple of mouthfuls on one... hardly worth the trouble to clean.

Doesn't matter the size. And, "cleaning?" Hah.
Have you seen the video of the Chinese woman clipping some hedges, finding a birds' nest, pulling the baby birds out one by one, and eating them? They will jam *anything* into their mouths, regardless of size or cleanliness. Fuck China.

As for the plaquenil "clinical trials" I wonder how they're ethically structuring the control group? Seems like a face off between plaquenil and remdesivir would be better that standard ineffective treatment v plaquenil

1052 Letting prisoners go is perhaps the stupidest **** I've ever heard of in my life. They're probably more safe from FluManchu in their more isolated locations than the rest of us. So, release them into the wild where the virus roams free!
------------------------------
My guess is they are avoiding lawsuits should the prisoner catch the Trump Did It Plague. The fact that they get to scare the proles is just an added pleasure for them.
