To stay with the trend of horrible analogies... the U.S. had a Frazee in goal.  A Frazee helps keep out most pucks, however some pucks can still make it into the goal. Other people can choose not to have a Frazee in the goal. Frazee is a sieve and everything shot by a Toews goes right through him into the goal.  Having a Frazee in the goal really makes no difference when facing a Toews.

nominee for post of the year.

The only people who need to be tested are health care workers, the elderly, and those with underlying health conditions.  If you are young (under 50) and healthy and are taking up a test kit, crowding

This country is being bright to its knees by fear....not the virus. Recovery from getting the virus is a couple weeks. Recovery of society from this hysteria will be years.

It’s sad that about half the country still believes outlets like msnbc and cnn.  You would think after they lied everyday for 3 years about Russian collusion, people would get the hint of what their t

New York has omitted an unknown number of coronavirus deaths in recent reports regarding residents of nursing home and adult care facilities, the New York State Department of Health acknowledged in a statement to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

In early May, those reports quietly began omitting long-term care residents who died of coronavirus in hospitals. Even so, New York still leads the nation with 5,433 reported deaths at nursing homes and adult care facilities as of Wednesday.

 

The revelation comes as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo faces criticism for ordering nursing homes and other long-term care facilities to accept patients from hospitals who had tested positive for coronavirus. Cuomo rescinded the March 25 order, which experts say led to higher levels of death among nursing home residents, on May 11 to allow such facilities to wait until a coronavirus patient tests negative before readmitting them.

 

Seems the Gov in NY has some explaining to do.

I have screens on all my windows. It helps keep out most bugs, however some bugs can still make it into the house. Other people can choose not to have screens on their windows. They will just have more bugs getting into their homes when they have their windows open. 

How do those screens work on farts?

You know, you are absolutely right if you completely ignore Frazees .961 save percentage in that semifinal game where he kept Toews off the score sheet until the overtime shootout. Give Toews 1000 shots on Frazee and he will score on every single one of them no doubt. Based solely on Toews going 3 for 3 in a shootout of course. It is absolutely 100% sustainable. Every coach should just not have a goalie in net when facing an elite forward, since it makes absolutely zero difference.

New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Delaware will all be opening beaches, for the Memorial Day weekend. States will have different specific rules about what happens on that beach.  For NY, local authorities can set stricter requirements but, in general: 50% capacity, social distancing, masks worn in proximity to others, concessions still closed, hand sanitizer must be made available, etc..

In other news, my covid antibodies came back positive (non-FDA approved test with specificity 93-100%), indicating that my diagnostic test was a false negative.  I was fairly certain I had it, since I had extremely labored and painful breathing for about two weeks plus total exhaustion, and obviously I had plenty of exposure risks.  No cough, no fever.  Unfortunately, I still can't donate convalescent plasma since they require both a positive diagnostic test and a positive antibody test.

It's a horrible analogy for a reason. Relax, Karen.

I almost wish newspapers would start laying off journalists too.  Then, I suspect we might hear a different tune from them via their social media, similar to everyone else who has been laid off or owns a business.

Do they test the ability of donor plasma to neutralize virus COVID in culture before administering it to patients where you are at or do they rely on ELISAs alone to confirm the presence of anti-COVID antibodies in donors?

I'm not 100% sure, but I would be very surprised if they test it in culture.  We're part of the Mayo Clinic's official study on convalescent plasma, so it's not an internal process for us, and I'm not privy to much of the behind the scenes info related to it.

Not agreeing/disagreeing with the action, but Walz is a retired Command Sergeant Major. So, yea, many do consider him an American Patriot.

Not print news, but MPR — volunteer furloughs and early outs.

Then he should know the significance of that order and those it should be reserved for.

For relevancy to what I am talking about we can go back in time to 1968 and the Hong King Flu.

Though largely forgotten, in 1968, the H3N2 (its technical name) pandemic killed 100,000 Americans (plus a million more worldwide), a figure that exceeds the death toll of both the Vietnam and Korean Wars. Moreover, the US population in 1970 was 209 million versus 330 million today, so adjusted for population the number killed was 136,000.

For unclear reasons, however, the 1968 “Hong Kong” flu passed almost unnoticed when it hit, conceivably over-shadowed by the Vietnam War and widespread urban rioting. Closer in time was the epidemic of 1957 that killed 116,000 and the 2009 flu epidemic—H1N1—affected 60.8 million Americans and the estimated death toll was around 12,000.

And this happened in the lifetimes of every American over 52 years of age. 

There were no shutdowns or economical maneuvers or reasons to make things political. There was no panic and no required mask wearing or social distancing.

Nothing was closed by force. Schools mostly stayed open. Businesses did too. You could go to the movies. You could go to bars and restaurants.

In fact, people have no memory or awareness that during the famous Woodstock concert of August 1969 was planned in January during the worse period of death – actually occurred during a deadly American flu pandemic that only peaked globally six months later. There was no thought given to the virus which, like ours today, was dangerous mainly for a non-concert-going demographic.

So what has changed?

Burgum moves state to moderate risk.......gatherings up to 250 people good to go at 50% occupancy at event venues.

 

On a side note playground equipment at parks in Fargo still a no-no.
