Quote XXII

"This unanticipated shock to our business has been acute, forcing us to make difficult decisions to ensure that Under Armour is positioned to participate in the eventual recovery of demand," Patrik Frisk, CEO and president,Under Armour


Quote XXIII

“He lived on his own but would go out every day. Dan had diabetes and was classed as a high-risk person so after lockdown he was unable to go out which we think pushed him over the edge.

“We were concerned about him being in isolation and stayed in touch but were not able to see him. We tried our best and let him know we were there for him" Chelsea Furniss


My heart goes out to the Furniss family.

Quote XXIV

“That’s the real evil of this type of programming,” “We believe it delayed and interfered with a prompt and adequate response to this coronavirus pandemic within the state of Washington.”Arthur West


Quote XXV

“In just ten days, we discovered that neither the tampon issue, nor the participation of transsexuals in the Olympic Games, nor the climate emergency were real problems, nor emergencies, nor anything of the sort. They were just fictitious problems, the pastimes of a generation that hadn’t known tragedy.” – Itxu Diaz, National Review

Dear MisHum ...


Am guessing you -- and possibly the ONT coterie -- might enjoy this.

While I may not visit the ONT regularly, my soul is always warmed when I do.

Thank you,

No we thank you Kathy. A very nice Hat Tip.

We can't escape the Kung Flu. It is changing your sex life.

Most people in lockdown, as 75% of Americans are at the moment, are probably experiencing big changes to their usual routine. There’s no office commute, no school bus shuttle; there are no parties to attend, no group dinners to plan. It’s unsurprising, then, that for a lot of people, those changes may also be affecting their sex life.

For some, less sex during the pandemic is a given—for those who are self-isolating while single, making their usual sex lives too risky, or those whose partners are away or sickened by the virus. Meanwhile, those with the option of having more sex might well be taking it: Condoms may become the next item to be in short supply worldwide, while some have speculated that maternity wards will see an uptick in mothers giving birth nine months after the lockdowns began.

This is a Smart Military Blog TM. And there is probably a Moron who has $1.3 million burning a hole is his/her pocket. 1944 Gruman Wildcat for sale.

History: The F4F Grumman Wildcat began life on Grumman’s drawing boards as a biplane, but nevertheless became the Navy’s first monoplane fighter aircraft.

The Wildcat has no hydraulic system and a very simple electrical system. The landing gear is cranked up and down (28 cranks), and the flaps are vacuum powered.

Despite its simplicity, the Wildcat was a great technological advance over its biplane predecessors when it entered service in the late 1930’s.

Pretty cool plane.

Covid-19 Shmoid-19, let's have some fun. Now, that's an 'Ette.

You cannot invade a Zoom conference (Zoombombing).

Federal prosecutors are now warning pranksters and hackers of the potential legal implications of “Zoombombing,” wherein someone successfully invades a public or sometimes even private meeting over the videoconferencing platform to broadcast shock videos, pornography, or other disruptive content.

The warning was posted as a press released to the Department of Justice’s website under the US Attorney’s office for the state’s Eastern district with support from the state attorney general and the FBI.

More and more of the world is increasingly self-quarantining due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and core pillars of society like public education and policy are moving from in-person meetings to remote conference calls on platforms like Zoom. In turn, that’s led to an uptick in conference call hacking and pranks. The most vulnerable forums are those of school classrooms, political meetings, and other sensitive gatherings including minors or confidential information. And as The New York Times reported on Friday, the weaponization of Zoom, not just for pranks but for harassment campaigns, has become a pressing concern at the highest levels of law enforcement as growing online groups gather on Instagram, Reddit, Twitter, and 4Chan to coordinate attacks.


However, if you are the Federal Government, no f*cking problem.

The Department of Health, under amendments to the National Disaster Act, now has permission to keep a database and track citizens who have tested positive for COVID-19, are suspected to be positive or are in contact with a positive patient.

“The National Department of Health shall develop and maintain a national database to enable the tracing of persons who are known or reasonably suspected to have come into contact with any person known or reasonably suspected to have contracted COVID-19,” the regulations state.

This will include:

First name
Last name
Identity number/Passport number
Residential address
Work address/Other addresses where they could be located
Cellphone number
COVID-19 test results
The personal details of all known or suspected contacts of anyone who has tested positive for the virus
As well any other information the department considers necessary for contact tracing.

No, I don't see any possibilities of misuse here whatsoever. I also have a Bridge to Nowhere for sale.

Now here's a perfect example of Zoombombing.

Zoom has become an indispensable communications tool while America is stuck in COVID-19 quarantine. From church services to "quarantini" cocktail hours, online "6-feet-a-partays," family reunions, college lectures and company meetings, the online meeting platform has met the demand for people hungering for a way to keep in touch while being sequestered.

Zoom is so popular that buyers have rushed to the NASDAQ to see how it's doing on the market and buying the stock, which, by the way, isn't the company with the ticker symbol ZOOM. Oops.

But someone always ruins the fun for the rest of us – or adds to it, depending on your sense of humor and tolerance.

It turns out that when you advertise the Zoom meeting link that anyone can access, you stand the risk of a prankster infiltrating the meeting. Strippers, hijackers, and sickos all have attended college lectures, classes and a man defending his Ph.D. thesis with bad jokes, pornography, and disgusting comments.

When The Sewer Twitter makes a mistake, why is always in favor of the big and powerful? Rhetorical.

A New York university was given access to the parody account of a student at the college who used the account to make fun of the school.

A Twitter account under the name @SUNYGeneeso that was operated by student Isaiah Kelly, according to Business Insider, had been using the handle to poke fun at the college for its handling of recent events on campus, which included a power failure and the library being closed due to an asbestos infection.

"Twitter determined the account violated their policy on account impersonation and turned access over to us." Tweet This
When the account had been locked initially, the student was sent a notification informing him that the email address had been changed.

According to Kelly, the email that had supposedly gained access to the account belonged to an administrator, which in turn allowed the person to edit the profile, which included changing the banner and removing some of the tweets from the account.

The student did get back access to the account, but it had been suspended for violating Twitter’s policy on impersonation.

Doctors are supposed to be so smart. Just what in the hell did you think was going to happen when you told people to stay put? Most of mankind is not prepared to be couch potatoes 24/7.

Doctors are urging Brits to avoid gardening or DIY jobs around the house during the coronavirus lockdown.

They are concerned that work may result in injuries that could add to the strain that hospitals are facing as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgeons is urging Brits to avoid starting any task that could lead in a traumatic injury as it could divert NHS staff and resources away for the current coronavirus crisis at hand.

Wankers.

After preparing tonight's ONT I found out first hand about our local hospital's emergency room. I didn't get bitched at. Needless to say The ONTs are going to be scant for a period of time.

Life continues, even in death.

Hundreds of mourners on motorbikes flouted the ban on large crowds and swarmed the streets outside a Queens funeral home Friday — while two NYPD cops even directed traffic, The Post has learned.

The streets were filled with the high-speed funeral procession at about 10:30 a.m. at the Leahy McDonald Funeral home at 111th Street and Atlantic Avenue — prompting outrage from leaders of one police union over the unsafe conditions amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Now more Lunacy!” the Sergeants Benevolent Association wrote as it tweeted a video showing scores of motorcycles and ATVs at the funeral.

What appears to be the perfect tool for social distancing, is in short supply.

You may or may not want babies, but sure as hell not right now. And you don't want STDs at any point in time. That's why you use protection. But you're not going to be able to maintain your reputation as a man who always traps his seed with the vigilance of a big game hunter if the coronavirus causes a world-wide condom shortage -- and it might.

The pandemic has shut down everything, including the Malaysia-based Karex -- the company that makes one out of every five condoms in the world in their three factories in China and India. Both countries are in heavy lockdown, to stop the spread of coronavirus, leading to all three factories going an entire week without making a single horny hoodie. A week-long disruption in the manufacturing line means there will be 100 million fewer condoms available in the near future to keep your streak of making your sperm feel like they've narrowly escaped an exploding Death Star only to be ensnared in another one of your dastardly latex contraptions alive.

This is not the AoSHQ Cob Dental Plan. Genius Award Winners.

An ex-receptionist says a New Jersey dental office is a hotbed of drug and alcohol use where her boss took hard liquor shots out of dental cups and threw a booklet at her for blowing the whistle, a new lawsuit alleges.

Nadia Zevallos says she was driven out of the American Dental Center in Union after complaining about the rampant party culture promoted by her supervisor Lilly Almeida, according to her Union County lawsuit filed Thursday.

The 39-year-old Belleville, New Jersey, woman says she saw Almeida drink hard liquor out of dental cups, eat marijuana jello shots and pot brownies while on the job, the court papers allege.

Almeida also allegedly pushed these edibles and drinks on other employees who partook in the partying, including a dental assistant who handled patients, the court documents say.

Zevallos was also offered the drugs and alcohol but passed, the court filings say.

96 So, Riverside County, California is requiring that you wear a mask if you leave your home.

Dr. Cameron Kaiser, the top health officer in the state's fourth-most populous county, said "not everybody's getting the message" about social distancing while in public, so officials were forced to "change from saying that you should to saying that you must."

The order issued Saturday also prohibits all gatherings except for family members living in the same home, according to a county statement. Police would enforce the regulations "as they deem necessary," the statement said.


You can be gardening by yourself in your backyard, and be arrested if you aren't wearing a mask.

Note that Riverside County was telling people a week ago that masks weren't necessary.

114 ARC, Riverside County is interesting.

Most of its population is in the far western portion of the county: Corona (yes really the name of the town), Riverside, Norco, Moreno Valley, Eastvale, et cetera.

Then there's not much until you get to Banning/Beaumont/Cabazon, then Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and finally, Indio (where Coachella takes place more or less). There's civilization but not nearly to the extent of Corona/Riverside.

Then there's nothing until Blythe, right at the Arizona border. Blythe isn't very big either.

Current FORTAN standard is Fortan 2018. Fortran is very much alive and well, and remains the lingua franca of scientific computing.

With this stupid WuFlu going around, I got interested in the SIR equations again. Among other things, I downloaded the Livermore Labs ODEPACK, public domain numerical solvers. Written in Fortran, of course, and I've been playing with then with the Intel Fortran compiler (2019 version) for the past couple of days.

Intel's compiler hiccuped on some of it, but some options fixed that, to tell the compiler to ignore some "questionable practices" that were common when the original routines were written.

158 ARC, Riverside County is interesting.

Dr. Cameron Kaiser, the top health officer in the state's fourth-most populous county, said "not everybody's getting the message" about social distancing while in public, so officials were forced to "change from saying that you should to saying that you must."

The questionable practices were simply using a big ol' array for multiple purposes. The main program, which calls the Livermore routines, must declare an array for works space. Different routines in the code use it for different purposes, declaring it as various different sizes and dimensions.

That's very bad to a modern compiler, but was common in the days of memory at a premium.

I dunno. I am of the opposite opinion. If the Left likes one of President Trump's people, it's not because that person is a help to President Trump.

Trump following Fauci's advice to shut down the economy, because this virus was supposedly so dangerous, is why Trump now has no possible way (politically) to start things back up again.

There will be cases and infections and deaths for months. The media and Democrats will blame every one on Trump for "not listening to his advisers" and "putting money over people's lives", etc.

After all, a disastrous economic downturn that brutalizes the peasants but gets rid of Trump is a very small price for the peasants to pay, and besides, maybe this time they will learn their lesson!

"This is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment, our 9/11 moment,'' U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams told "Fox News Sunday."

Funny, my friend on Staten Island did that very thing today. Mowed the grass, weeded the yard and the flower bed, put out mulch and some plants in pots, made the water hose 'orderly' by coiling it properly; general yard work. She felt happy to have done so, like she actually accomplished something. She also said she'll probably feel it tomorrow but at least she won't have to commute.

302 Hi everyone, hope you're all doing well. I apologize for being really drunk last night; tonight, I'm much, much less drunk.

Walking along the local nature walk, it struck my how the Current Unpleasantness has really affected dogs. Dogs (for the most part) are very friendly and gregarious and love being petted and fussed over, and now they don't get that. I did the Vir Cotto finger wave at them, and it was obvious they wanted to jump on me and cover me with dog kisses, but it just wasn't feasible.

(The owners totally understood, by the way, and were really nice, but I bet the doggos were like, "I'm not getting petted? What the hell, what dark sorcery is this?!")

Hope you all have a great Monday. Nothing has really changed for me; I've been doing Social Distancing for decades now. I miss restaurants, though, as it means I gotta eat my own cooking.

Anyway, love you all, as always.

Some doc on bluprint/craftsy is recommending masks made of HEPA filters for those who need protection, and there's a video there.

I have a supply, but I made couple non-HEPA mask today and tried a new shape. The n95s are tough to seal on me, so I based my "shopping mask" on a cheap synagogue freebie yarmulke. I used a long garbage bag type twisty for the nose bridge and some elastic, and this shape gave me a better seal than the pleated one, as it completely covered my chin and went under the neck. I had no luck making a pleated one work well

I'm going to look around the house for HEPAS tomorrow.

I tried it just to see - I had better luck folding the bandanna differently. I turned it so it was like a diamond, pulled the top corner down about a third of the way, then pulled the bottom corner up about the same, then folded as in the video from there. After I slipped the hair ties on the ends, I tied the left and right corners together in the middle instead of tucking one end in the other as she did.

I hope that makes sense. It probably would make more sense if you had a bandanna in front of you.

313 I can attest catching the flu right now is not a fun experience, whether it's the China Lung Rot or not, because there will be a non-trivial percentage of your mind that thinks "I'm dead, aren't I".

Lots of fluids help, but they need to be electrolyte laced or you'll be pissing every five minutes, and that's no good.

Two tablespoons sugar and a teaspoon of salt in a liter of water works really well. I like to mix baking soda in sometimes. Sodium citrate if you have it.

Fever is scary, but it is necessary. Even 104 or more isn't really cause for concern, though I never saw that high. Lots of chills and night sweats though. That's where electrolyte replacement comes in.

Mixed nuts - almonds, cashews, hazlenuts, pecans, have lots of magnesium and zinc and potassium. Good protein too.

After all, a disastrous economic downturn that brutalizes the peasants but gets rid of Trump is a very small price for the peasants to pay, and besides, maybe this time they will learn their lesson!

Posted by: Commissar Hrothgar at April 05, 2020 10:24 PM

Yep, it seems he was faced with two bad options concerning the pandemic...

--- ride it out like we did with H1N1 and other viruses and have the media crucify him over every death, pointing out all the warnings he was given
--- crash the economy through encouragement of "social distancing", but still get blamed for everything

He chose option 2 probably because he felt he could make the case to the American people that the economy can be brought back, but can't do the same with someone who dies.

334 have a supply, but I made couple non-HEPA mask today and tried a new shape. The n95s are tough to seal on me, so I based my "shopping mask" on a cheap synagogue freebie yarmulke. I used a long garbage bag type twisty for the nose bridge and some elastic, and this shape gave me a better seal than the pleated one, as it completely covered my chin and went under the neck. I had no luck making a pleated one work well

-------

Both. I'm making the outside woven, and the lining out of a men's T-shirt because I read those are pretty effective.

I'm not worried about trying to put in a liner like a filter or vacuum cleaner bag, because I'm not making these for use in a hospital. It's really more to keep us from touching our faces and protecting others just in case we sneeze or something.

If it got to the point where I had to worry about liners, I know there are videos that show how to do those, plus wires for the nose, etc.

I enjoy both of the Zappa songs, never heard them before.

Being drowned by English rock and blues as a kid, I heard very little Zappa. Not that I'm complaining. Clapton is a little g god. Hendrix went to England and influenced a lot of them, after dropping out of Garfield HS in Seattle in the mid 60's.



Then again, I like the blues more than at least 60% of all self-identified Democrats. At least.

Here is an interesting bit of useless trivia:

UV light does not 'kill' viruses. What it does is render them sterile, so that they cannot reproduce.

Not inescapable, but definitely thorny. I think he has made it plain that he leans towards firing the economy back up as soon as possible (ie, politically so).

While gone from our collective modern memory, we've been down this face mask road before. During the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, it became mandatory all over the country to wear masks. Fine and jail time for those who didn't.

Hell, the tobacco companies even made masks with little flaps to allow one to smoke.

If you look a pictures from that era, you'll see everyone wearing masks.

416 We know Arthur West here in Olympia, WA! He's been suing people to make a living for himself for a loooong time -- decades. At least back to when George W Bush was first elected. He sued the Port of Olympia multiple times, and many other businesses and entities on one pretext or another over the years. He knows they'll most likely cave and settle, and then he gets money. If they fight back, he doesn't lose anything and still gets liberal sympathy and publicity. When a 'group' (mostly it's just him) he forms gets too much negative notoriety, he disbands it and forms a new one. A real sleazeball.

457 So it's been a week since I came down sick. All the symptoms. High fever, racking cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, chest pains and headaches. Thought I was on the uptick yesterday. Went out to the garden and turned over a couple of compost piles. Forty minutes later I'm inside, flat on my back, feeling like someone had hit me with a 24. Mrs. Sock wanted to take me to the ER. I nixed that. Told the wife that I'll know if it's time to go. Daughter, the RN, came out this morning.and checked me out. She got me to agree that if my blood oxygen level goes down 2 pts I will go to the ER. Left one of her spares and Mrs. Sock sticks it on my finger every chance she gets. It's gone up 2 pts since this morning but I still feel like crap.

The IHME model is predicting about 94K deaths total from this, with the peak death rate occurring in about 11 days at 2600 deaths per day. The death curves have been pretty accurate so far. The hospitalization predictions have been high for most states by a factor of four.

When we hit the peak, total deaths will still be less than half of the asymptote, owing to the long tail of the death rate curve.

They're going to update it tomorrow with the past few days worth of data, refitting the curves, and we'll see what happens.

Set up centers in every major city in every state whereby healthy adults between, say, 21 and 45 are exposed to the virus then treated over the recovery period. Once they test negative, they donate a pint of plasma to treat those who are in advanced stages. We thus proactively flatten the curve, and build a stockpile of antibodies that can push back on this virus. It's already being done.. wwwdotksladotcom/2020/04/05 replace dots with punctuation...

Anybody else here ever play Jotto? Secret 5-letter word, and 5-letter word guesses give you clues to the letters.

When we were kids, we had the Official Jotto Pads, and you can find the game forms online, but you can play it with just a pen and paper...

...as long as you MAKE SURE that you confine yourself to five-letter words.

Back in HS, I was playing friend D, and I just could not make out what his secret word was no matter how many guesses I had. Turned out his secret 5-letter Jotto word had a double 'c' and a double 'h' - "church."

D was asshoe.

When they get those blood antibody tests up and running at scale, we can test the general population and see how many are recovered and immune. They can then go out and work without worry to themselves or others.

The Krauts are ramping this up now. Those who are immune will get a "certificate of immunity" and be allowed to go back in public.

This is also very good for doctors and nurses. Those who are immune won't have to worry with the PPE, and can be the ones who directly handle the WuFlu patients.

496 457 So it's been a week since I came down sick. All the symptoms. High fever, racking cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, chest pains and headaches. Thought I was on the uptick yesterday. Went out to the garden and turned over a couple of compost piles. Forty minutes later I'm inside, flat on my back, feeling like someone had hit me with a 2x4. Mrs. Sock wanted to take me to the ER. I nixed that. Told the wife that I'll know if it's time to go. Daughter, the RN, came out this morning.and checked me out. She got me to agree that if my blood oxygen level goes down 2 pts I will go to the ER. Left one of her spares and Mrs. Sock sticks it on my finger every chance she gets. It's gone up 2 pts since this morning but I still feel like crap.

Winston Churchill (indomitable, indispensable) had the exact right quote on that problem.

"..Experts must be on tap, and not on top. Specialists should be on tap, never on top. Scientists should be on tap, but not on top."


Trump is the right man to have at the Top, right now.

He's positively Churchillian in his powers, energies and appreciations.

Trump would, like Churchill, take a walk through London during the Blitz.

Hillary would merely get blitzed, bombed and embollared.

It was interesting because she goes into great detail about her experience.

Re Herd immunity. From the basic SIR equations, that level is 1 - 1/R0. They've just upped the estimates for WuFlu R0 from 2 - 2.4 to 3.0 - 3.1

For R0 = 2, herd level would be just 50%. For R0 = 3, that gets it to 2/3. For R0 = 3.1, that's 68%.

606 I got to wondering if a HEPA vacuum bag would be too hard to breath through. Vacuums are operating under pretty good pressure. I didn't find a yes/no answer but did find some web article saying that if a mask is too non-porous air can only come in around its edges. Also warned that the vacuum bags are made with fibers that good be bad for your lungs. Decided I'd stick with fabric for any mask I craft. Probably something along the "t-shirt dust mask" (search youtube) We have a few flimsy dust (not N-95 or surgical) masks so can go out with one of those just for the ' yeah sure, I'm wearing a mask, keeping everyone safe ' kabuki theatre effect.

I think the main thing with masking is 'change em frequently. throughout the day and sanitize at the end of the day' Maybe put the paper ones in a warm oven. I read that they have determined 140 F for 30 minutes kills this virus'. Cloth ones could just be washed with bleach I'd think.

The Leftist Seattle Times, a lost cause except maybe for the sports section, has this as an article, and all slanted to the non-profit's side.

It is really pathetic if you were to learn the facts instead of what is claimed.

And the Times does not even allow a comments section to respond to the false information.

National aggregate curves have been updated now. Very considerable changes. Total nation death asymptote has come down to ~82K (range of 50K - 136K).

But the peak death rate number has gone up considerably to 3100 deaths per day on the 16th.

What that means is the death rate curve has been squeezed in, but the peak got pooched up. Total area under has come down, though.

You'll see the range curves and the main curve has gotten a little more raggedy and jagged. That's more real data, with it's more stochastic nature affecting the model run.

This is very good news.

Also, peak has moved from April 26 to April 14.

All terrific news, but so terrific and radical one wonders WTF.

Presumably a lot more test data being dumped into the machine?

You could see at today's briefing the principals looked kind of stuck - there will be a bad week the next 5 days, however (hopefully) less bad than earlier expected, but they might have been seeing the dramatic improvements in overall projections. They couldn't exult, because 1) uncertain 2) we're about to see the max death week, under all scenarios. But there were more vague guarded expressions of optimism than I've seen in any briefing so far.

The model has been adjusted all along, as it says, and of course data can suddenly change dramatically (look at France's new-case # two days ago - yeah, it's real, but it's entirely the result of suddenly including available data on nursing facilities, I think).

671 publius I've wondered all along if the resource capacity #s reflected the fluid situation (e.g., NYC getting X thousand new beds via field hospitals, temporary clinics, and the Comfort). But as for resource use #, must this not reflect a much lower rate of hospitalization/positive test?

That would explain all the changes in resource problems.

However it wouldn't explain the sudden back-dating of LA's peak, or the radical lowering of the overall event in CA.

MI looks better overall, but still high death # and gap in ICU capacity.

674 Sharing some interesting research, looks like COVID-19 does *not* easily transmit from surfaces. German researchers swapped surfaces in a home where the whole family was highly infected but could not grow the virus back in the lab (the virus strands were dead):

****

Streeck, who is director of the Institute of Virology at Bonn University, said he was able to detect coronavirus by swabbing remote controls, washbasins, mobile phones, toilets or door handles.

However, it has not been possible to cultivate the virus in the laboratory on the basis of these swabs. "This means that we have detected the RNA (or ribonucleic acid, which carries the virus's genetic information) of 'dead' viruses," Streeck said.

According to his previous research results, he believes "that a door handle can only be infectious if someone has actually coughed in their hand and then reached for it.

"After that, you have to reach for the door handle yourself and touch your face," he said. It is not yet possible to say how long the virus can remain on a door handle because not enough studies have been carried out.

Streeck added: "We were in a household where many highly infectious people lived, and yet we did not manage to detect a living virus from any surface."

He said these early research results would now be further developed in the current study in Heinsberg.

Virologist Christian Drosten of Berlin's Charite hospital had also previously pointed out in an NDR podcast that coronaviruses are extremely sensitive to drying out. They are also transmitted by droplet infection and must be inhaled.

Therefore, according to the virologist, there is little chance of transmission by contact with notes or coins, for example.

****

This fact might point out why Asian countries with very high mask use in public have done so well, almost all transmissions are happening from inhaling the respiratory droplets of a sick person.

677 >> But as for resource use #, must this not reflect a much lower rate of hospitalization/positive test?

Yes, that's exactly what *seems* to have happened. Again, the model's resource usage numbers were way, way off, only 1/4 th or less that what was being seen.

So, they've recalibrated the thing with the actual real numbers, and the result is this big change.

Now, so far, the death rates were pretty accurate.

So, we could naively assume that the overall mortality rate they were teasing out of previous data was fairly accurate, but the hospitalization rates were way high.

683 publius, good, but the CA and LA death projections have dropped radically - it's not just the timeline and hospitalization numbers that have changed.

The total US death projection has not dropped that much (a few thousand, IIRC).

And VA's timeline radically changed - from May 20 back to April 20.

One consequence of all this is that we may be having clarity on the total event much sooner than expected earlier.

Posted by: rhomboid at April 06, 2020 01:38 AM (El6T/)

684 >> The total US death projection has not dropped that much (a few thousand, IIRC).

~82K from 95K, or 14%.

Note how the shape of the death rate curve has changed as well. The nationwide peak death rate has increased, and by a good bit to 3100 per day, but the curve is much narrower. So, it got squeezed in and pooched up. Higher peak, but 14% less deaths overall.

Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion of a Poperin Pear at April 06, 2020 01:42 AM (rCwaK)

685 Yeah, and the total deaths were about 83k before they went to the 90k's....
Now they are back down.

Posted by: Deplorable Ian Galt at April 06, 2020 01:44 AM (ufFY8)

686 Good to keep expectations low, but another thing - these radically improved timelines and resource use, and significantly lowered total death number presumably reflect only more/better data (and possibly payoff for social distancing, reflected in the data) but do *not* of course yet include any impact of therapy innovations now being pursued.

If there's any substantial improvement in treatment, that could drive yet another big reset (in the right direction).

I got to looking the box office receipts detail. It started dropping off pretty good last week in Fed, with some drops of 40% and 50%.

Then, the week of March 20th, it dropped essentially 100%. Went to zero.

See the latest at ZeroHedge. This explains why Trump cut off Fauci. According to leaks, Peter Navarro went off on Fauci, yelling and screaming at him, at today's meeting of the task force.

Navarro was handing out reports of HCQ's success all over the world. Fauci spoke up and starting going on, again, about "that's just anecdotal".

Navarro exploded at him with that. He'd had enough of Fauci's "anectdotal" shit.

Pence and Kushner had to basically pull Navarro off Fauci, with "Pete, take yes for an answer", indicating that everyone save Fauci pretty much agreed with him.

696 publius, that box office data tracks with something I've mentioned here a few times - anecdata about hospitality (bar/brewery) traffic dropping dramatically well *before* any SIP orders were given.

My info came from the horses' mouths of bar owners and brewery staff, who were scrambling to reduce their crews and operations a week before CA's SIP directive - because traffic had disappeared starting earlier that week. So actual drop in business pre-dated evil nefarious commie guvamint shutdowns clearly motivated by a desire to derail the Scalp Weasel - or something - by 10 days or more.

Hard to believe it was that much different most other places.

Of course this means returning to normal for that hardest-hit sector may be quite difficult - not just a matter of flipping the switch to "on".

Shared sentiment, combined with Dumb Question.

Were the H'wood studios sufficiently astute as to have purchased insurance against just such an eventuality as this?

701 >> Their fate depends on the answer to that Dumb Question, doesn't it?

One would think that, being the smartest people in the room (in their own minds) they would've hedged for some risk events.

However, this is the type of event known in the insurance industry as a "tail risk" event. Way out their on the tails of the distribution at vanishingly small probability.

Now, insurance companies are required to properly hedge for the centers of the distributions, but not the tails. They couldn't do business if they had to be sound for essential "100% loss to everybody" situations.

And so, the whole country backs them up for the tails. Reinsurance and ultimately Uncle Sam.

The idea is that if a tail risk event occurs, it will be local or regional, and so the rest of the companies with Uncle Sam behind them, are on the hook to back them up per law.

Now, what happens if everyone suffers a tail event at once. Well, that's a tail of the tail event, a black swan's black swan.

SMOD or full nuclear exchange would be an example of that. There, you figure nobody would much care, because everybody would be dead.

If Hollywood had hedged/insured against this "drop to zero" thing, then guess what? It means their counterparties have just suffered one of those big tail events I was talking about.

And with the whole damn country shut down, we might just have ourselves a tail of the tail event.

712 Publius.

I do not want the U.S. Taxpayer buying off the Black Swan for Hollywood.

But I'd be thrilled to buy a bucketload of lenses for pennies on the Franklin.

Not on the dollar. But on the HUNDRED dollar.

Bodies and systems do go obsolete.

Seldom though, does a Nikon or Hasselblad lens reach the end of it's days.

And I would encase an Arriflex camera under glass, if only as a museum piece.

Think of a Swiss Watch that ran 16mm film behind the finest Zeiss lenses.

At it's zenith, the mechanically timed and regulated camera industry produced the absolute pinnacle of precision engineering.

Rivaled ONLY by the brass geared and nickel-steel cams of the analog Fire Computers of the Iowa Class Battleships.

Nikon's F-2 35mm camera, with it's 1/2000th second titanium shutter speed.

Or a 2,200 lb. shell, fired at 2,800 feet per second, from a platform speeding along at some 34 mph, and a minute later, impacting a target also breaking the waves at 30+ mph, on a slightly different heading.

I daresay the Analog Fire Computer from the 1940s had a bit of the more difficult task?

Difference being. The Nikon weighed about the same as a Smith & Wesson revolver of it's era.

Just over 2 pounds.

The Iowa's Fire Control Computer, weighed in at about a ton and a half.

And Iowa Class BBs deployed FOUR of them.

I'd rather carry the Nikon, all in all?

727 Trump wasn't taken seriously (except by me) when he announced. He proceeded to methodically make every Republican candidate for Prez either his subordinate ally or his bitch and win the "pennant". He then proceeded to endure broadsides from nearly every direction and then was spied upon by his own government. Refusing to fold, he stayed on message with iron determination. He then took Hillary to the Electoral College and schooled her so hard, she was named its mascot. Trump then breezed through graduate and post-graduate studies in handling treason, sedition, and conspiracy to overthrow the government of the United States of America all while Making America Great Again. Who the Hell else should be running this country now?

That's a good article and worth a read.

Short version: Yes, it came from specific bats. No, there weren't any of those specific bats being sold in the wet markets. But - in an amazing coincidence - there were lots of those bats being researched in the labs, and they were specifically researching exactly what is going around the world right now.

788 It's important to remember something about "escaped from a lab", btw.

News reports, like they do with everything, shape the stories. They will say the virus is natural and not something that "escaped from a lab" in order to force the topic into one about manmade bioweapons.

This probably isn't manmade, but that doesn't mean it didn't escape from a lab.

Posted by: Moron Robbie got the Kung Flu Grippe at April 06, 2020 05:26 AM (DVfUO)

Masks are the new virtue signal.

Went to the store yesterday and maybe 3/10 folks were wearing a mask. None of the store personnel were masked. The cops on the street at the stop light aren't masked. People out walking their dogs and walking with their kids aren't masked.

Be interesting to see if the the governor and his minions are masked when they're giving their briefing today.

It was interesting because she goes into great detail about her experience.
