'Rona Roundup: President Considering Mask-Wearing Guidelines; NYC Hospitalizations Fall; President Considers Quarantining NY and NJ

Judge frees illegal alien alleged murderer over fears he might catch the Chinese Flu.

This is NYC.

You can't quarantine this place fast enough.

A Manhattan judge on Thursday ordered the release of a career criminal charged with stabbing his girlfriend to death out of concern he could contract coronavirus at Rikers, the Post has learned.

State Supreme Court Justice Mark Dwyer freed Pedro Vinent-Barcia, 63, and 15 other inmates after the Legal Aid Society filed a petition arguing that their detention exposed them to serious medical harm in the midst of a pandemic sweeping through city jails.

Prosecutors objected, citing the brutality of the crime and the defendant's criminal record.

Assistant DA Patricia Bailey said Vinent-Barcia terrorized Bernice Rosado for months before tracking her to a cellphone repair shop in Harlem on June 29, 2018, and repeatedly stabbing her in the chest and back.

The gruesome attack was captured on surveillance video and witnessed by numerous bystanders, according to court papers.

After cops nabbed him, he allegedly asked, "Is she dead? I hope so."

The prosecutor told Dwyer that Vinent-Barcia was arrested in Florida for stabbing another girlfriend in 1993 and biting off a piece of her ear.

Note: The mask proposal is for purposes of re-opening the country. Many have pointed out that South Korea did not shut down, but kept the Wuhan flu well-contained. What did they do? They wore masks in public.

That was enough to contain it.

People screaming about this either don't know this, or want to keep the country shut down for months.

Our attempts to be humane towards prisoners has had the paradoxical effect of making things worse. Society would be far better if every town and city had a whipping post erected outside the town hall and people were given lashings for minor offenses.

18 When there is no Public Justice, Private Justice will become the norm. If the woman he murdered has any male relatives (or bold females) it's time for them to step up the plate and take care of this. It's also time for any officer who investigates to turn his head and say "I dint see nuttin', no evidence, no suspects."

that's the only answer left.

25 There's this general concept, which I think is going to gain more and more traction with the general public, of red pilled and blue pilled people.

I forget which pill is which.

The gist of it, of course, is that some of us are living in the matrix, and some people have awakened (which is not the same as being woke).

Society is turning on more and more to the notion that our reality is not what it seems, and there are so many aspects of what we do that seem to have been intentionally managed so as to put people into deeper and deeper sleep.

Is it a good thing if people wake up? That's an open debate, but the world sure does look awfully different when you sorta start with the assumption that NOTHING we are told is the truth, and everything is masking something else.

So yay, 2020.

31 I appreciate the county by county approach by POTUS. It's up to the county, city, and state officials to handle things. If things get out of hand, like with NYC with the explosion with failure from individuals through local and state officials, then POTUS has no choice but to step in and force a quarantine. Unfortunately it's like getting punished in team sports when certain individuals continue to fuck up so the entire team is punished to sort out the problem, and it works.

My wife's partner in her practice - his wife is an OBGYN.

She is getting BOMBARDED by expectant mothers coming up to Maine from NYC because they don't want to be in the hot zone. On the flips side, my wife who is a sports med physician (but who is also primary care board certified and has ventilator certification) is about to be furloughed on May 2nd if this sh*t doesn't turn around.

I have some close relations who have always been "jocks" for lack of a better word, and who have been full time into the Sports world. Work in it, eat it, live it sleep it, watch it, to the exclusion of almost everything else, sports has been their entire world.

It never once occurred to them, not once in their lives, that the entire sports world could just be turned off, like flipping a light switch. Now they are desperately racing to try to understand a world they've never even tried to pay attention to before.

Two school districts by me have changed to four-day weeks in the last 15 years. Test scores went up. We have been homeschooling for seven years. My daughter gets to go to private Catholic school next year in part because she scored above all the other students in English on their placement test, which scored her a scholarship. My eldest (autistic) daughter got a 29 on her first attempt at the ACT. The WaPo is shakin' in their boots at the thought that some folks might find out what my former teacher brother eventually understood: The less time your kid spends in a traditional classroom, the better they will do.

You can make your own masks almost as good as the N95s that will block out at least 90% of particles. Cut up old tee shirts to the that will cover your mouth and nose, take vacuum bags and cut them up to the same size, put the tee shirts on either side of the vacuum bag pieces, staple them together, use string or anything to tie it around your face. You have a reusable mask for when you go shopping or get in crowds. Just leave in the sun when you get home and spray with Lysol.

67 >>>yeah, sorry Mr. Two Scoops, but i'm not panicking and wearing a mask, just because the government tells me i have to.

well you can say that but I don't think many of you understand the police power of the government in an emergency -- a power that existed before the Constitution as well as after it.

I also don't think you understand that mask-wearing is an ALTERNATIVE to shutting everything down. South Korea stayed almost completely open-- they just wore masks when going back and forth to work.

If that's too much of an infringement of your liberty, well, whatever.

But I would note that the power to jail/quarantine people who refuse reasonable restrictions during an epidemic is older than the Magna Carta.

Oh one more thing: It's easy to get masks. Have you even bothered LOOKING?

But hospitals and schools and all sorts of other businesses are going to MANDATE their employees come to work, wearing these useless devices.

Why?

Not to stop the spread of disease.

167 Masks are not necessarily to keep you from getting the virus though a surgical mask is better than nothing on that front.

It is really to keep you from spreading it. Cough or sneeze into mask is better than trying to catch it into your elbow.

I think masks are a big part of the reason Asian countries slowed the spread. The learned the lesson of SARS and everyone masks up.

there can be more instruction, but even imperfectly worn, they do SOME good. Same with hand sanitizers ... depends on the strength ... or soap and water, 20 seconds and brush under fingernails is better, but 10 seconds may be enough 95% of the time.


It won't be perfect sterile technique ... it will be pretty clean technique.

A 28 or better at most places these days gets you an automatic half-tuition scholarship. 32 is more, but I don't know how much more. That's just from her recruiting emails that we've gotten from the universities that got her scores.

Back in the previous century, I paid for all of my education in college, and 95% of it was cash. No scholarships since my grades were terrible in high school, although my SAT score was nothing to sneeze at. But I could get a year of college for about $2k at a major university. That's basically a class now. I think the scholarships for those that can tie their shoes without help have increased as the tuition has. Like Insty says, if you pay the sticker price, you're the chump.

Other 18-year-olds I knew from school all were bragging about all the scholarships and financial aid they had landed, despite them all being totally spoiled rich kids with every aspect of their lives being paid for by mom and dad, including all college expenses -- and they all had worse SAT scores than me too.

I asked them how they had managed to get all those payouts, and in reply they were more confused than I was, asking back: How could you NOT get them?

Well, I said, I filled out the forms....

They laughed. Wait -- YOU filled them out?

Uh, yeah -- I filled them out. Is there some other way to do it?

More laughter. Of course, you idiot -- if you yourself fill them out, you'll never get any money. You let the pros fill them out.

The pros?

Yeah, the professional "mentors" and "counselors" your parents hire who know all the tricks and gimmicks to getting maximum financial aid and scholarships.

Me: Well, what does it matter who fills out the form -- the info you fill in is always gonna be the same.

Doubling over in laughter now: You fool! No one tells the truth on the forms! You need the pros to tell you exactly what numbers and lies to put on them! You told the TRUTH??? Hahahahaha!"

It was at that moment that I began hating all humanity and have never stopped since.

I had good grades, but I'm leery of them vs. standardized testing.

The test tells you whether the kid is smart. The grades tell you whether or not the kid liked going to High School.

If a student is motivated for college, smart works just fine on its own. When you put a gun to a smart kid's head and force him to spend four years in a child-prison where dreams go to die, he may well perform poorly in that environment.

I only got good grades to keep my parents off my ass. Given my own preference I would have ditched school every single day.

if you knew part of a case name but not the full name or proper name, yeah, that would help, but then, knowing the exact case name isn't such a huge thing.

the only area I can think of this being helpful in is in local civil procedure, which is mostly "you have 21 days to issue a reply and 14 days from receipt of the reply to issue a surreply" and very detailed nits like that. It would help with that stuff.

Back in grad school, NSF graduate scholarships were quite prestigious, and the recipients were impressive. Then we started noticing that some real shitheads were now recipients of them. WTF?

Turned out that NSF started using "additional" criteria, such as race, sex, geographical location, etc., that is, things that had nothing whatever to do with ability.

272 Ace-

It seems to me that if general population wearing surgical masks were to be effective, as is being alleged in regard to S. Korea, it should be implemented early in the course of the outbreak, not at this stage, when most European countries are showing signs of peaking and beginning to decline, with the U.S. perhaps 10-14 days behind that. If the wearing of masks is just a fig leaf (of sorts) to allow people to get out and about, so be it, but I don't think it will change the trajectory of the epidemic much at this stage.

I don't think we can discount other factors in the trajectory of S. Korea's apparent success.

275 I think an open book exam format might be really effective.

Because -- you know that your notes, your notebooks, the stuff you bring to the exam, will substantially effect your grade.

So that really forces you to be methodical and complete in your note-making and outline-making.

So: You basically teach yourself the material while making your notebooks and outlines.

And then during the test you don't look at your notes much (because you don't have time -- you either remember or you don't). but the process of making the notebooks has forced you to know most of your material.

In many cases they are the SAME EXACT people.

Posted by: Yudhishthira's Dice


You must have grown up in a different world from me. Grades might indicate that you were good at school, but (even back in my day) they also were likely to indicate that you were in a preferential minority group ushered through school with inflated grades in mick classes and private tutors paid for by the district who hand-hold you through every test. Nowadays this is even more commonplace, but it started long long ago in "progressive" school districts. At my school one kid won the "Student of the Year" award because (repeat: BECAUSE) he was illiterate and yet was so brave to "keep trying" and not drop out of school. His GPA was 3.9+.

Illiterate.

285 A month or so ago I was anti-cheap paper mask in the sense that they really don't do much to prevent you from getting the virus. They aren't form-fitting and are open on the sides, plus you can get the virus through your eyes and ears just as well. People wearing them either grew up in Asia where this is standard practice a lot of the year during normal times, or were virtue signalling.

Now, I'll say that wearing the cheap paper masks is helpful, particularly to stop all the asymptomatic carriers of the virus (who we now know are out there) from spreading it.

It's about preventing spread rather than protecting yourself per se.

I was witness to a pneumonia death, which included the medically-induced coma and intubation. And then there was brain damage due to either the coma or a long loss of oxygen, and doctors said that even if the person ever came out of the coma, it would be as a near-vegetable.

And then eventually the person was left to just die.

It's a very bad kind of death.

Posted by: illiniwek


***********

My suspicion is that is one reason the U.S. has higher daily rate of new cases than every country in Europe. The geographic extent of the U.S. with multiple population centers is causing what you describe.

Another possible factor is the extent of actual testing (and reporting) giving an elevated count of cases, including less symptomatic cases. Different methodologies give different results.

My business partner and I were literally right in the middle of our first round of financing when the world shutdown. Our current daily expenses are pretty light but we need the money to keep going and to really launch the business. We also have some substantial expenses that can't be extended for things like patent renewals in numerous countries.

Needless to say we have no idea if and when the investor sector will reopen so we are teetering on extinction. It also doesn't help that our biggest customers are large cities and municipalities including London and NYC, both of which are closed.

Posted by: BurtTC at March 28, 2020 02:44 PM

First thing that came to my mind when I heard about prisoners being released is the scene in Batman Begins. Where they deliberately released the prisoners, because they wanted the drug they were releasing into the city to affect the bad guys and cause chaos to destroy the city.

In this case, we have a virus that is in America's cities, so what better way to spread it even more than to release a bunch of criminals who refuse to obey laws and 'stay-at-home' orders.

Ironically, in Batman Begins, the solution was to blow up the bridges to keep people from leaving the city to limit the spread.

367 there must be studies on viral transmission ... via breathing versus eye contact, versus touching infected surfaces.

All the Asia pictures in my mind at least, have the mask but not eye protection ... except maybe normal % with glasses. Just guessing, masks and hand washing are more vital than catching the stray virus particle (viron?) in the eye ... more likely it gets pushed there by a finger. There must be Real Science on all that, even if there is some variation for each virus.

392 Mark Dwyer is an "Acting" judge, whatever that means, and he is the same judge who sentenced two men to prison for daring to fight with Antifa thugs last fall. The two men, sentenced to FOUR YEARS each, called themselves "Proud Boys" and Dwyer didn't like them defying Antifa one little bit.

But, stalking a female and gruesomely murdering her (captured on video)? Not a big deal.

416 FWIW I'm a landlord and I told all my tenants that

1) If they're employed and collecting their normal check, no change in rent.
2) If they got laid off and provide written documentation: April rent is deferred until they can collect unemployment, and then it will be split up among the rest of the rent payment for the year.

None of my properties are in a position where I need to worry about paying the mortgage. I did tell my tenants however that major maintenance issues may take longer to be addressed - so far none have complained.

I spoke to my lender this past week and they said they can work with me if my tenant situation puts the loans under stress. I've been a really good source of revenue for my (local) lender and there's a lot of motivation on his part to keep these properties in my possession.

The rules differ from place to place in the country, BTW.

Where daughter is --- a very low risk area ---masks are only legally required on public transportation, I think, and for food handlers. But many people, especially the elderly, wear them anyway.

They DO quarantine outsiders, though. If you travel from Seoul or certain other (relative) hotspots to a cool-spot, they will make you stay home for a while. (It was two weeks when I last heard.)

And they can take your temperature at will --- on the street, in a store, at a park, at school. Anywhere, anytime.

He says the chief danger is touching something, then touching your face. The point of a mask isn't its protection, but that it keeps you from touching your face. Lots of other good stuff. 40 minutes of lecture then questions from a couple dozen people on the call.

442 South Korea not only wore face masks they did aggressive contact tracing.

They not only published the locations of where infected people had been they provided an app with live mapping.

They gave out specific information about locations and published the locations of transmission clusters so that people could not only avoid contact risk at those known locations but also could self report for testing if they were exposed to those locations.

South Korea, Taiwan and Singapore did this. They used cell phone location data, credit card data and other data stripping it of personal identification and then publishing it.

Masks was only one of the components. Wide testing capacity with little to no barriers to testing, publication of locations and specific transmission clusters and mask wearing.

South Korea and Singapore also did do localized lockdowns with deep cleaning. South Korea did lock down of the city of Daegu in addition to all the above measures. And the US military did lockdowns of our bases in South Korea.

South Korea and Taiwan also provided live maps of where masks would be in stock so people would not have to risk exposure to multiple locations trying to hunt for them. Singapore provided four free masks per family a week IIRC.

Probably the most important factor is detailed information about the specific locations and associations of transmission clusters.

Posted by: ace at March 28, 2020 03:41 PM

This is a very good point to remember. The Left likes to demonize companies over "too high" profit. But I imagine businesses that have been doing well with profit will have more in cash reserves and will be more able to withstand this hit to the economy.

That needs to be hammered home to the anti-business, class warfare people.

Also helpful would be to bring up Dave Ramsey's suggestion to build up a 3-6 month "emergency fund" for personal finances. i.e. a savings account where you have enough to cover your expenses for 3-6 months of no income.

487 At my school one kid won the "Student of the Year" award because (repeat: BECAUSE) he was illiterate and yet was so brave to "keep trying" and not drop out of school. His GPA was 3.9+.

Illiterate.

Nothin' left to say.

488 CDC is all over the place--I'm not really criticizing; they've got a lot going on. But trying to find one answer to one question is tough at their site.

Here's one version of their advice about facemasks:

If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider's office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room. Learn what to do if you are sick.

If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.

490 Massee ( hope thats right) was on Rush's show with Ken Matthews Friday,
made a good account why he did it and the constitutional reasons for his
proposal. We have no idea if this boondoggle goes south who voted for
it now.



But it was just "procedural".

493 CDC recommendations on masks seem to be to discourage their use to keep them for medical professionals.

It will be tough when the new public guidance will be to wear them.

497 So in order to go back to work, we have to wear masks. Okay, time to break out my old Rorschach costume from The Watchmen. I'll be looking forward to my coworkers' looks when they see me in that mask and hat.

In all seriousness, I imagine there will be a lot of people trying to have fun with this, decorating their masks like football players decorate their mouth guards.

498 Maybe the mask doesn't protect you from the virus.....it keeps you from sticking your finger in your various orifices.

Dim plan is to just handcuff us. So there.

499 Massie voted present on Obama's Iran deal.





He was the only R to vote against anti BDS bill.

Posted by: Hmmm


Don't give a shit. Not talking about the man himself. He may or may not have had good reasons for his prior votes.

Conservative Review gave him an A rating while Toady McCarthy and Turtle McConnell gave the Dems handjobs under the table time and time again.

I will stand up for anyone who cites Constitutional grounds for legislation.

No matter how loud old farts whine for their handouts.

501 61 It never once occurred to them, not once in their lives, that the entire sports world could just be turned off, like flipping a light switch. Now they are desperately racing to try to understand a world they've never even tried to pay attention to before.

This. Sports are a First World luxury.

The virus is necessitating a lot of much-needed rethinking about what is valuable, and what is not.
Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at March 28, 2020 02:55 PM (YqDXo)

Allows me to restate one of my patented rants:

The fact that we have all this 27 genders nonsense (and Woke-ism in general) is proof that we are a wealthy and prosperous society that can tolerate idiots. If we were poor enough that people typically had to do productive work in order to survive, it would shut many of these parasites. In a perverse way, we should celebrate that Brie Larson and Talcum X thrive, because it means we are thriving too.

502 Regarding masks, I found this explanation of how different masks work at, of all places, a Quora question answer.

From supposedly a Dr. Amy Chai, MD, Internal Medicine, MS Epidemiology. Posted back in FEB 26, 2020.

504 Can I jury-rig the mask to fit better?I
am glad you asked. Okay, you didn't ask, and it was a set up. YES you
can mess with the mask to make it seal better. You can use gel designed
to make snorkeling gear seal, or you can try Vaseline around the edges. I
would not suggest double stick tape unless you want to peel your face
off at the end of the day. And Vaseline might be kind of greasy. But
there are a number of products out there that could enhance the seal of
your "respirator."


Fantastic resource , Clyde . Thanks! Answered my biggest question ie to "rubber cement or not to rubber cement?"
