  1. I'm not in medicine, but I have relatives in nursing homes and memory care. Most die there because they have elected to not have unnecessary procedures done on a "health care directive." They are made comfortable normally using hospice.
  2. I don't know if you would ever find me in that line. My hope was, this was the body fighting off the virus after a second infection, but I'm not a monkey either.
  3. A prototype vaccine has protected monkeys from the virus, researches have found. A prototype vaccine has protected monkeys from the virus, researchers reported on Wednesday, a finding that offers new hope for effective human vaccines. Scientists are already testing virus vaccines in people, but the initial trials are designed to determine safety, not how well a vaccine works. The research published Wednesday offers insight into what a vaccine must do to be effective and how to measure that. “To me, this is convincing that a vaccine is possible,” said Dr. Nelson Michael, the director of the Center for Infectious Diseases Research at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. Scientists are engaged in a worldwide scramble to create a vaccine against the new virus. Over a hundred research projects have been launched; early safety trials in humans have been started or completed in nine of them. Next to come are larger trials to determine whether these candidate vaccines are not just safe, but effective. But those results won’t arrive for months. In the meantime, Dr. Dan Barouch, a virologist at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and his colleagues have started a series of experiments on monkeys to get a broader look at how coronaviruses affect monkeys — and whether vaccines could fight them. Their report was published in Science. In one series of experiments, each monkey received pieces of DNA, which their cells turned into viral proteins designed to train the immune system to recognize the virus. Most coronavirus vaccines are intended to coax the immune system to make antibodies that latch onto the spike protein and destroy the virus. Dr. Barouch and his colleagues tried out six variations. Some of the vaccines provided only partial protection, but other vaccines worked better. The one that worked best trained the immune system to recognize and attack the entire spike protein of the coronavirus. In eight monkeys, the researchers couldn’t detect the virus at all. “I think that overall this will be seen as very good news for the vaccine effort,” said Dr. Barouch. “This increases our optimism that a vaccine for Covid-19 will be possible.” https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/20/us/coronavirus-live-updates.html?action=click&module=Spotlight&pgtype=Homepage
  4. You asked for it, you got it. Picture of it on valley news website
  5. My neighbor is Dr at Sanford, he showed me a picture of it from his phone Saturday. (We were standing 6 feet apart)
  6. FYI, they did set up the Fargodome. The entire football field is covered in beds.
  7. I'm a little surprised no one has mentioned Frenchy's. Best spot in town
  8. I am a reader of the forum. (Obviously not many posts.) The date I was told was October 17, 2020. But maybe that was shared in this thread already. That's the date I have blacked out in my calendar.
  9. Looks like it is delayed, IIHF U18 Men's World Championship Russia Vs. Usa from 4/14/2016 #1 Thursday, April 14, 11:00 pm on NHL Network USA Duration: 2:00:00 [HD][CC]
  10. Find a someone with a Suite. Hello, There have been a few inquiries about additional parking passes for suites. Each suite is given one parking pass per four seats in their suite. As a premium seat holder you also have the opportunity to purchase a parking pass for the UND Wellness lot for all Men’s home hockey games at a cost of $225, for the season. The parking passes for the UND Wellness lot are game specific, they are actually a parking ticket valid for each UND Men’s home hockey game, verses a hang tag. Feel free to contact me if you would like to purchase a UND Wellness parking pass. Thank you Julie Frey Suites and Catering Operations Manager Ralph Engelstad Arena One Ralph Engelstad Arena Drive Grand Forks, ND 58203
  11. Nationals championships for DII volleyball are by region. Even if you have the top 8 ranked teams in your region, they are going to play each other. Champion from each region goes to the national final four.
  12. I believe the NSIC was closing in on the NCC in most sports except football and maybe womens bball. I don't think the old NCC would compete in the last years with mens bball with Winona or Vball with Concordia St. Paul. These sports have been stronger for a couple years previous to UND's move. Now with Bemidji's trip to the frozen 4, it looks like a great year for them as a DII conference(granted Bemidji is DI hockey). What I have heard is there will be some more additions to their conference, including Morningside and University of Sioux Falls, with that said, their conference will become tougher to schedule with because of the size of the conference, causing more scheduling difficulties for the Sioux for non conference games. I think the NSIC will become very popular because the local kids will be playing in this conference, be it Northern State University, UMD, or Bemidji State. They are competitive nationwide as a conference, and the locals love to see the local kids do well and the NSIC has done very well with national champions in Vball, womens bball, mens football, and who knows....Bemidji hockey..Yo, Walrus, gotta love the volleyball right?
