  1. Not at all. But I do know the difference between a tax return and a balance sheet. I think I learned that my sophomore year of high school in an accounting class.
  2. How does a tax return show somebody’s balance sheet?
  3. Jefferson characterized people as falling into two group, liberal and servile. Modern conservatives fall into the liberal category, while people who currently characterize themselves as liberal/progressive fall into the servile category. Jefferson's direct quote on classic liberalism is "those who identify themselves with the people, have confidence in them cherish and consider them as the most honest & safe,...". His direct quote on serviles is "those who fear and distrust the people, and wish to draw all powers from them into the hands of the higher classes". Even though he wrote that 196 years ago I think it still rings true today.
  4. And we were told more testing was key in preventing cases.
  5. Follow Ari Fleischer on Twitter today for a fascinating minute by minute of the happenings of 9/11.
  6. It’s more so clean coal technology and tighter emissions that have led to better air quality. Particularly the reduction in sulfur containing compounds. I don’t have access to data on fossil fuel usage, but I don’t think there’s been a reduction compared to 40 years ago.
  7. There is actually pretty decent empirical evidence for this. Whether Trump can take credit for it is another story. It’s actually kind of ridiculous how ‘clean’ the air over the U.S. is compared to other developed countries.
  8. I don’t think this will really get sorted out until we have data regarding causes of death for 2020. Unfortunately the latest CDC data I can find is for 2017. The two categories to keep an eye on are ‘chronic lower respiratory diseases’ and ‘Influenza and pneumonia’. If there’s a decrease in those two categories roughly equaling COVID deaths we have definitely all been hoodwinked. We probably won’t know for a while though.
  9. What I’ve heard is she had a drug overdose two days prior to her death. Also had contracted MRSA and pneumonia prior to testing positive.
  10. That article was so two days ago. We’ve learned so much about the virus since then.
  11. Meh. Minot’s a red town and no decision has been made yet. Parents and teachers favor a full in classroom model though.
  12. I’m not positive but I don’t think NDSU is requiring face coverings. Not saying either approach is right or wrong, just interesting to see the differences. EDIT: Never mind. It looks like NDSU is requiring face coverings while in class. Not sure about all common indoor areas. The enforcement at both campuses might be interesting.
