  1. The chips they pushed in the middle are from just new printed money, more where that came from!
  2. Betsy DeVos to issue Title IX rules on campus sexual assault this week https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/betsy-devos-to-issue-title-ix-rules-on-campus-sexual-assault-this-week/ar-BB13DSfE?ocid=spartandhp
  3. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/did-the-coronavirus-really-escape-from-a-chinese-lab-heres-what-we-know/ar-BB13ADkC?ocid=spartandhp As NBC News has reported, U.S. intelligence agencies first detected signs of a health crisis in Wuhan in November, and began producing intelligence reports on the issue in December. The National Security Council began meeting about coronavirus in early January, according to NBC News reporting. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on ABC Sunday that "there is enormous evidence … I can tell you that there is a significant amount of evidence that this came from that laboratory in Wuhan." But he declined to detail that evidence. No one has credibly suggested the virus was engineered by humans. Pompeo said he accepted the scientific consensus that the virus was naturally occurring. Two labs in Wuhan were studying coronaviruses. Researchers from both facilities collected the virus samples from bats in caves. In the accidental release scenario, a worker at one of the labs could have become infected and transmitted the virus to others. Those who suspect such a lab release point to the following: A Jan. 24 study published in the Lancet medical journal found that three of the first four cases — including the first known case — did not provide a documented link to the Wuhan wet market. The bats that carry the family of coronaviruses linked to this new strain are not found within 100 miles of Wuhan — but they were studied in both labs. Photos and videos have emerged of researchers at both labs collecting samples from bats without wearing protective gear, which experts say poses a risk of human infection A U.S. State Department expert who visited WIV in 2018 wrote in a cable reported by the Washington Post: "During interactions with scientists at the WIV laboratory, (US diplomats) noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory." According to intelligence committee member Sen. Tom Cotton, R.-Ark., the Chinese military posted its top epidemiologist to the WIV in January. The Shanghai laboratory where researchers published the world's first genome sequence of the novel coronavirus was shut down Jan. 12, according to the South China Morning Post. According to U.S. intelligence assessments, including one published by DHS and reviewed by NBC News, the Chinese government initially covered up the severity of the outbreak. Government officials threatened doctors who warned their colleagues about the virus, were not candid about human-to-human transmission and still have not provided virus samples to researchers.
  4. Many over 65 are already going to gated communities is Messa. Just have to round up the last few.
  5. If the college season is suspended, postponed, or delayed, the NFL is considering playing games on Saturdays, according to a report by Andrew Marchand of The New York Post. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/report-nfl-eyes-playing-games-on-saturdays/ar-BB13r0DE?ocid=spartandhp
  6. Maybe we can count them as influenza patients then.
  7. Kinda seems like Queen Corona has taken control of much of our public lives for the long haul. This will takes months - - - to get things back to the way they were 3 months ago (January).
  8. Devils Lake: At bridges of Channel A and Mauvais Coulee are doing pretty good right now.
  9. Sounds great, may have to drive down for one. LOL I was thinking of going in for a test but passed, tomorrow is my 14th day since I meet with one of my tenants in GF, who's results came back positive Tuesday. Tenant was sick for a week prior to going in for a test, tenant felt OK when we met. I've felt OK, till 4:00 today; nausea, little couching, quezzy stomach, feel warm but only 99.6 temp.
  10. Unapproved Chinese coronavirus antibody tests being used in at least 2 states But some COVID-19 antibody tests, including those being used by public health departments in Denver and Los Angeles and provided to urgent care centers in Maryland and North Carolina, were supplied by Chinese manufacturers that are not approved by China's Center for Medical Device Evaluation, a unit of the National Medical Product Administration (NMPA), the country's equivalent to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, NBC News has found. Many of the unapproved tests appear to have been shipped to the U.S. after the FDA relaxed its guidelines for tests in mid-March, and before the Chinese government banned their export just over two weeks later. https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/unapproved-chinese-coronavirus-antibody-tests-being-used-least-2-states-n1185131
  11. After reading 150 pages of posts on this thread, I think that you may be on to something?
  12. CNN: BREAKING NEWS Flash across the bottom of the screen. 5 minutes before I posted it.
  13. It Is Important to Know This Virus’s Origins A few people sometimes ask whether it really matters whether this virus originated from someone being less careful than they needed to be with a bat in a laboratory or biological material from the bats. I assume these are good faith questions, and not some sort of effort to preserve the good name of the Chinese government. Indeed, to the doctors trying to save lives right now, and to those suffering the effects of SARS-CoV-2 right now, the scenario that brought the virus into humans doesn’t matter that much, at least at this moment. But if we want to ensure nothing like this happens again, we need to know how this virus first got into humans. The irony is that every possible transmission path paints the Chinese government as incredibly reckless and unconcerned about the risk to human life. https://www.nationalreview.com/the-morning-jolt/it-is-important-to-know-this-viruss-origins/
  14. Going to have to have the mating hogs practice self distancing.
  15. There were two semi loads of Canadian hogs that came down hwy #2 from the west yesterday, went through GF and headed south on I29, hopefully not Sioux Falls.
  16. No joke here, CNN actually credited FOX for breaking the story. This story by FOX claims "their sources believe."
  17. Sources also confirmed that China used the wet market theory, which was parroted by the World Health Organization, to disguise and deflect exploration into the origins of the virus. The Chinese Communist Party has restricted research into the pandemic’s origins, while documents obtained by The Washington Post this week show that in 2018, U.S. officials warned the lab’s work with bats and “shortage” of safety protocols could lead to a “future emerging coronavirus outbreak.” National Review has also detailed how job postings from November and December show the Wuhan Institute of Virology confirming “the origin of bats of major new human and livestock infectious diseases” with new research. https://www.nationalreview.com/news/costliest-government-coverup-of-all-time-growing-confidence-among-u-s-officials-that-coronavirus-emerged-from-lab/
  18. FOX broke the story, go back a few posts. You used to work for the Forum, WOW.
  19. US explores possibility that coronavirus started in Chinese lab, not a market https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/15/politics/us-intelligence-virus-started-chinese-lab/index.html
