    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Check out this screenshot. The spike is hitting NYC, but the kicker is we still don’t know how far into it we/they are. And resources were critical before the surge even got here. This is what unpreparedness and years of misappropriated funding looks like. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    Dakich under investigation

    Similar garbage happened to a former HS coach of mine and it was absolutely ridiculous. Luckily he’s moved on to greener pastures and remains a heck of a coach. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Trump said last night they will re-evaluate things after the 15 day period. Newsflash for him: we’re halfway though that and still climbing the mountain. We can’t break these shutdown measures early. We can’t. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Many sympathies, condolences, and prayers OF. This thing has taken away some of the most basic human rights and elements. I’m sorry you all had to suffer through the dementia. My grandmother suffered with this and thus did her children by extension. I see many families who bear the oft times long, drawn out, and just seemingly unnecessary course of that disease process. It sounds like she had a life well-lived and well-loved. Hang in there. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    South Korea and Japan are doing it right. Here’s one example. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Not at all. We just don’t have all the information, so I’m just looking at possibilities. A) Don’t fall for the connotations of ‘mutated’. A virus wants to live and replicate. By whatever means work best. Couldn’t it mutate into a more easily transmittable strain with less aggressive attributes? Sure. Any variant of those combinations. Virus gonna virus. B) Who’s to say the/a lesser strain didn’t get here first? Maybe a less severe and/or less transmittable strain? Because China sucks, we don’t have a true timeline on anything, nor do I trust anything they’ve put forth. Even hindsight sucks because the general public will never have the full truth on this thing, and that makes most arguments of ‘right and wrong’ useless. There is only now and how we deal with it. BTW, Here are Indiana‘a updated numbers as of this morning: Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Dakich under investigation

    They probably deserved to hear it from the school board politics standpoint. I’m not real upset with him. Obviously it meant something if people cared enough to complain. You or I could say it and no one would give it a second thought. Also: ‘trash-human’ is hilarious [emoji38]. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Coronavirus and Its Impact

    Not necessarily. It has mutated at least once since jumping from animal to human. Seasonal influenza does the same, hence the varying rates of the flu shot year to year and the occasional unlucky person who gets influenza twice in one season. But, we’ll never know. We’re only left with theory and assumption for that time frame. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners mobile app

    Dakich under investigation

    I would say if people are that easily offended they shouldn’t be listening to a guy like Dakich. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    https://es.pn/2woKd7I The Rivers breakdown makes sense and gives me more positivity than I had. Overall it’s a nice get when you consider the pedigree and leadership you’re getting for a rental (albeit an expensive one). EDIT: Even though I copied the link, it directs you to the wrong article. So just ignore me, ha. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

    I don’t know what anyone expected to happen. Nothing changes until McRobbie is out. I’ll edit this with I don’t know enough to know anything. The initial consensus seems to tell the tail, so I’ll trust you guys. Sent from my iPhone using BtownBanners

  14. 1) We don’t have ENOUGH of a sample size to assume the true mortality rate, especially when comparing to influenza. With the low and asymptomatic cases out there and limited testing, we currently have a falsely low number of total cases and subsequently the likelihood of a lower true mortality rate. The current sensationalized ‘15x more fatal’ than the flu won’t be true in the end (and really isn’t now). 2) Influenza is less selective. I’ve watched it kill the elderly, those with cardiopulmonary comorbidities, poorly controlled diabetics, the immunocompromised.... healthy middle aged adults, healthy young adults, and healthy children. Of course, weighted to the first group. Coronavirus is near exclusive in targeting the first group aggressively. And to my knowledge thus far, there hasn’t been a handful (if any) reports of critical pediatric cases or deaths. 3) It spread like wildfire in China because China is packed in shoulder to shoulder. It’s killing heavily in Italy because their population is top heavy (large geriatric percentage) and their healthcare system is less than stellar and easily taxed. 4) If more of us had a bidet the toilet paper crisis wouldn’t be a thing right now.

  15. I tried this angle earlier. It won't work here (or anywhere now).
