Notoriously unreliable way to poll anything. That’s a worthless stat and the TV station knows it.A local TV station here ran a Facebook poll today with over 9,000 responses so far about the new mask requirement. 70% say they won't wear one. This should be fun to enforce...
I am not particularly sympathetic with banks. Closing branches and limiting hours, resulting in HUGE lines at the few remaining branches. I fail to understand why they are doing this for ********* reasons. I have to bank for work reasons so am familiar with their new hours. But for regular customers who come every once in awhile, they can be surprised by the new hours.
I wore a mask, as did the security guards out front and the staff, but I was really surprised that almost none of the customers had a mask.
Can it get more absurd? Like "catch it and I'll give you funds..." facepalmNebraska’s governor told local governments they will not receive any federal money to help fight the effects of the ******** ********* if they require people to wear masks in public buildings.www.1011now.com
In the words of Alanis Morissette, "Isn't It Ironic?" A major rallying cry of the protesters is, "I can't breathe!" So many without masks shouting out as forcefully as possible. Perfect superspreader scenario. "I can't breathe!" is what many infected with *********-19 will be gasping from their hospital beds.
But here’s the idea: Tear gas makes people cough, so even if they have *********-19 but are asymptomatic or presymptomatic, now they’re spraying *****-laden droplets into the environment. Tear gas and pepper spray make it almost impossible to breathe while wearing a mask, so those come off, increasing other people’s likelihood of inhaling those small particles. What might have been a lower-risk context becomes a high-risk one, primed to become the sort of “superspreader event” that has characterized *********-19’s worldwide spread. “You take a smaller-risk thing, and multiply it by time,” Chin-Hong says.
And if any of the police tactics include mass arrests or detainment, the risk is even greater, because it’s back to the classic bad-news situation for *********-19: big groups spending long periods of time in enclosed spaces. This was already a problem in jails, even before the protests. “In the presence of a *********, arresting and incarcerating someone unnecessarily can turn into a death sentence, not just for the people arrested but the jail staff, the court staff, the family members of the staff, and the protesters,” says Steffie Woolhandler, a public health professor at City University of New York’s Hunter College who studies infectious disease and prisons. “This is a doubly serious human rights violation.”

I don't know the exact numbers off the top of my head, but 70% of this country DID NOT vote for trump. HILLARY WON THE POPULAR VOTE.70% of this county voted for Trump and 70% think wearing masks is government run amok for a "hoax." Coincidence?
Actually, in this case, I think it's pretty much dead on. 70% of this county voted for Trump and 70% think wearing masks is government run amok for a "hoax." Coincidence?
It's not a random sample, it's whoever decided to answer the poll - usually people who feel strongly about an issue and that seems to be the anti-maskers these days. So yes, if it matches, it is a coincidence.
My every fourteen days shopping trip is today. I mainly go to two grocery stores. At one of them about 1/4 to 1/3 of the customers have been wearing masks and all of the employees. The other one had about 1/4 of the customers wearing masks and about 1/3 of the employees. I'll see if anything has changed. I feel sorry for the businesses because I would bet that they are worried about angry customers with guns, which is probably why only two stores in the city required masks already - Costco and Trader Joe's. It might be too soon to see any changes, though, as probably the stores haven't had time to prepare their signs, etc. yet.
I love sports and I especially love baseball (Alex Rodriguez said those people who don't care about sports should imagine a world without music) and I keep hoping against hope that something of this season will be salvaged.
Once again my hopes have been smashed. The Phillies training camp has 8 positives.
Five Phillies players who had been training at the team’s facility in Clearwater, Florida have tested positive for ******** in recent days, multiple sources tell NBC Sports Philadelphia.
In addition to the five players, three staff members have tested positive. The identities of those infected is not known.
I really wonder how all the organized sports leagues are going to handle this kind of situation. I really doubt it's limited to just one training camp in one sport.
Well governor Ricketts has made CNN's front page for his uselessness/stupidity for saying that cities can't receive funding if they require masks. What a dumbass.
