Damn it, of course I got CL’ed. Repost.

I want to apologize for getting something wrong earlier. I had mentioned the smallpox vaccine and how many lives it had saved. I knew that a vaccine had been developed in the 1700s (as it was pointed out by several of you), but I had thought that the vaccine had been “perfected” in the 1970s and had wiped out smallpox. What had really happened is the massive vaccine program that had started in the late 1960’s that led to the declared eradication of smallpox in1980. I also got the fatality numbers wrong. I had stated that 750 million had died in the 20th century. It’s said that it was actually between 300-500 million globally. Still a breathtaking amount. Anyway, I wanted to correct myself and thank you guys for pointing out what I had gotten wrong.

It was just 5 weeks ago that I went to Florida and celebrated my 70th birthday with all of my children around me!

All I ever wanted to do is enjoy my retirement, travel & spend time with my grandkids.

Now that is taken away from me.

I know. We’ve been strictly forbidden from seeing my granddaughter (and daughter and son-in-law) for our own protection, but it’s hard. She’s growing and changing so fast (as babies do.)

My in-laws had to wave at my kids through the screen door when they dropped off our St. Patrick’s Day feast. My parents may have to postpone their interstate visit. It’s horrendous to be a grandparent and to be forced to watch the grandkids from the separation of social distancing.

Here’s a link to an excel (download) of the doubling times per day in US & Italy. Per million numbers and new cases per day also graphed.
drive.google.com

The US #’s increased a lot today as testing is catching up with the underlying numbers. Below is the doubling times in the US over time, by fitting 4 days of numbers to an exponential fit (R^2 are good). Initial numbers have been noisy.

Different sites use different numbers, likely due to different cutoff times. I started with wikipedia’s global site, and use worldometers.info until wikipedia is updated. Once the US has things under control you will see the doubling time climb like in Italy. Its bad, but their controls are having an effect there.

Face timed with my mother today so she could see me and the kids. She’s in lock down in the nursing home I had to put her in just before this started and boy, do I feel like a pos.

I’m going to make sure we do a FaceTime this weekend with my folks so they can see my kids. It’s been 3 months since they’ve seen them in person, and if we’re limiting interstate travel and visitations, it might be 3 more.

The Internet is anonymous, therefore it’s okay to be an asshole. The thing is, I have always treated my online persona as if it’s easily linked to my real-life persona (mainly because it is, but still). Some people seem to think that they are immune from discovery because they are online.

Yes, it is, though it is still at Norfolk undergoing maintenance. It will still be some time before it can steam to New York.

The Mercy will be headed to San Francisco.

The problem with the two ships is much of the medical staff are reservists. To staff the ships properly, you have to strip them from their civilian jobs at clinics and hospitals. (This is similar to the problem presented when Gov. Cuomo demanded Army MASH units: They are also reservists and require the same.)

“…Next, somehow, the party of idealistic Teddy Roosevelt, pragmatic Bob Dole and heroic John McCain became anti-intellectual, by which I mean, almost reflexively opposed to knowledge and expertise. We began to distrust the experts and put faith in, well, quackery. It was 2013 when former Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal said the Republican Party “must stop being the stupid party.” By 2016, the party had embraced as its nominee a reality-TV host who later suggested that perhaps the noise from windmills causes cancer.”

My sister had a one-on-one talk with our Texas brother — and she’s banging her head. First he said that Trump did not disband the pandemic team — he just assigned them to different positions where they were needed more — and Trump was aware of the coming pandemic but he was trying to calm the public. Our brother is not uneducated and he’s not an evangelical — brainwashing can warp practically any mind, regardless of education.

Have mentioned this before — but a small business owner friend of mine said that Trump is no different from many business acquaintances of his: boastful, arrogant, racist, and misogynist. That’s why they all like him: he represents their ideal of a leader.

I get that people are looking for an outlet for their anger, but the Chinese didn’t invent this, and even if they did, it was a select group of assholes and not the average Chinese person. Certainly not Chinese-Americans. Shit happens. Pandemics will happen. We fight them and we move forward. It’s not anybody’s fault. Direct your anger into your efforts to support relief.

I’m a millennial Charles. The hatred of the older generations creeps me out.

TPM published a letter from one:

[…]
The thing is, I accept my social responsibility, but am also keenly aware that all of these sacrifices are primarily to protect the older generations from an illness that poses only minuscule threat to my personal health. Many millennials hold those same older generations responsible for the dreams deferred after 2008, not to mention the chronic underfunding of social welfare and health systems that could have mitigated the impact of this crisis. […]

While I value the life of all people, I have to admit that the prospect of losing my job, my home, and all possibility of future retirement is a massive gut punch. All the more so when it is in service of protecting the future of a generation that has failed so miserably at protecting mine.

How many more days I can work remains to be seen. I can not work from home, it’s too much of a hands-on make the metal, grab the torch kinda thing. Our neighborhood is entertainment dollar dependent and that is crashed out. The LA County case count is still pretty low even if you have a multiplier in mind for lack of testing. But *shudder* I fear our very poor and homeless are going to be culled hard. Some cold hearts will welcome that.

The testing is being offered free of charge by UBI and c19 and will be administered by the Public Health Department of San Miguel County, with the goal of detecting and containing community spread, and providing a more accurate assessment of disease prevalence.

re: #69 Rightwingconspirator

I guess a lot of us will share our coping stories here. I just moved my wife who is high risk to her mom’s house with the expectation of being apart for months. How many more days I can work remains to be seen. I can not work from home, it’s too much of a hands-on make the metal, grab the torch kinda thing. Our neighborhood is entertainment dollar dependent and that is crashed out. The LA County case count is still pretty low even if you have a multiplier in mind for lack of testing. But *shudder* I fear our very poor and homeless are going to be culled hard. Some cold hearts will welcome that.

Hardest days in our lives, and it’s still early.

I said something downstairs. Summary: Those assholes are all of a piece. They hate on olds and disabled at the drop of a hat. They’re cute when they’re with friends and the mask slips. Disabled Twitter knows all about them; they’re the people who tell us to choke on plastic straws, who say that Mother Nature has no use for the disabled. We know.

Shanidar Cave shows us what humanity says to Mother Nature about that. F&ck the idiots with a rusty pitchfork.

re: #15 Quoth the raven, Covfefe.

My in-laws had to wave at my kids through the screen door when they dropped off our St. Patrick’s Day feast. My parents may have to postpone their interstate visit. It’s horrendous to be a grandparent and to be forced to watch the grandkids from the separation of social distancing.

I hate this term. It’s an oxymoron.

It’s the voluntary and government encouraged human detachment from the rest of humanity. It’s the total opposite of “social”.

Sounds good, though. Just another bullshit meme.

Best Buy is changing their hours:

The situation we’re facing as a company and as individuals is unprecedented and changing at a pace all of us are working to keep up with. We are making the best decisions we can with two goals in mind: protecting employees, customers and their respective families, while trying our best to serve the millions of Americans who rely on us for increasingly vital technology that keeps them connected to their school and work, and for the appliances necessary to help them store and prepare food. Demand is high for these necessities, including for the millions of children who will now rely on technology to continue their education online.

Even as we meet this demand, we’ve already adjusted how we operate in many ways to improve safety. We believe it makes sense to keep our stores open in those places where it is allowed and advisable. We are, however, making a series of changes:

Starting Wednesday, March 18, store hours will be reduced to 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time. We will revisit on an ongoing basis the decision to remain open with shorter hours, but our intention is to operate this way through Sunday, March 22.

Starting Monday, March 23, and at least for the next two weeks, we will serve our customers through limited access to our stores and curbside pickup. This will be done with the intent of substantially reducing the number of people in stores (only 10-15 customers at a time) and hours will remain 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time.

There will only be a few employees in the store, and customers will be able to:

Take advantage of limited services within the store, including finding a specific product. Customers will be escorted by an employee, maintaining the recommended social distancing separation of 6 feet and following the official guidance to not allow clusters of 10 or more people
Pick up a product at curbside that they ordered ahead of time on bestbuy.com or the Best Buy app
Drop off a product for Geek Squad repair
Of course, customers can still order on bestbuy.com and have their products shipped directly to their homes. Deliveries and installations will continue wherever permitted and under strict safety guidelines. All in-home consultations will be done virtually as of Wednesday, March 18.

These changes also require fewer employees working at any one time, and we intend to give employees not working two weeks’ pay. We have also relaxed our absence policy and will not penalize employees for missing work.

No real service is going to be universally embraced! Just go full on-line delivery, and pay your employees until this blows over.

I still like to buy stuff in person if I can, especially electronics. Yes, I will probably have to change that some, but I would also prefer to pick up some things at a store rather than have them delivered and left on my porch. This was also in the email that had a link to what I copied:

As for our employees, let me start by saying this: We will not make any employee work if they aren’t comfortable doing so. Further, if an employee is sick or needs to take care of their children home from school, we are paying them. Additionally, with our reduced hours and less staff in the stores, we are paying affected employees for their regularly scheduled hours.

We don’t have any Best Buy stores here, but “order on-line” does not work in an area where “on-line” costs a minor fortune. (Aside from food, Internet service is our highest expense. It costs more than gas, electric, water, and telephone put together.)

I went and had dinner with my brother and mother today. I realize that sounds kind of nuts, but we’ve been isolating for a week and have already come to the conclusion that if mom gets sick, we’re both going to have to be there. If my brother gets sick, I will have to be there to take care of mom.

My brother finally sat down and had the coronavirus discussion with mom, explaining what was happening. What really got through to her was the Bay Area shelter in place order. She was born in Contra Costa County and lived there half her life, so this really hit home. She’s also (still) smart as a whip, and once you get through her severe hearing impairment, she asks the right questions about what’s going to happen and what do we need to do and have you gotten your sister (not me, my sister who lives in Houston) on the phone so I can talk to her? I suspect my sister is overworking herself for the huge medical company that is even larger than my too big to fail employer.

My brother is still obsessing about paper money as the carrier of the virus. Seriously, I don’t think it’s quite the issue he thinks it is. The next time he brings it up I’m going to ask him when was the last time he used paper money. I have paper money but it’s in my wallet. This isn’t Japan, where having paper money is necessary for so many things.

Who’s handed their credit card over to a clerk in 4 years?

Oh, crap. Me, because I used the drive-thru at CVS on Sunday, but I mean before that it’d have to be the last time I personally paid when going out to eat someplace that didn’t yet have a card scanner at the table.

But aside from restaurants, where you’d already be boned anyway from the food were the server infected, I pretty much don’t see anywhere where there isn’t a scanner available to the customer directly. And in fact, none without a chip slot for 19 months.

I happen to be an apartment resident. Small building, two dozen units or so. One thing I happen to have at hand is an extra “pesticide sprayer” in 3-gallon size. We use it to water orchids with R.O. water. It’s a spare so starting tomorrow it’s a bleach-based disinfectant spray gun. That sprayer will be used to spray all the common areas. Front and rear gate, mailboxes, stair rails. Laundry room etc. This is an all-hands “not a drill” time. Bring what ya got to the effort.

Well, the few places here which do take credit cards do have the personal pads (except for the places which use Square and have a little doodad plugged into something where they have to swipe the card).

No one’s card readers accept the chip thing. (They all have something like a card inserted in the slot with Do Not Use or something on it.)

As for the card reader itself, how many people wipe down the buttons and the stylus for signing the screen before using them?

Bernie Sanders signaled Wednesday that he was open to ending his presidential run after another round of landslide losses to Joe Biden, and new signs emerged of communication between the two camps as some Democrats hoped for a swift end to a bruising primary.

Sanders campaign officials said the senator from Vermont planned to leave Washington and return home, where he and his wife, Jane, would talk to supporters and determine the future of his presidential run. The campaign also suspended its Facebook ads and, uncharacteristically, made no request for donations in an email to backers updating them on the situation.

Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said that aides to the two candidates have been in touch regularly to discuss the public health crisis that has gripped the country, disclosing talks that could form the basis of a broader agreement on policies and might make Sanders more comfortable leaving the race.
