  1. Just took a quick screengrab and changed levels in Adobe PS. With the original scan files one should be able to get a better grade, maybe use Premier or After Effects?
  2. A virus is actually predictable: https://www.healthline.com/health/r-nought-reproduction-number People are trying to do the right thing and prevent the virus from spreading. It really isn't that difficult to do.
  3. A ray of hope should be based on facts and not wishful thinking. Trump is a populist and says what many people want to hear. I am not a "sky is falling" type. I'm also not sticking my head in the sand. Here's a little ditty to cheer you all up.
  4. Scientists have used mathematical models based on the data that is known and 2.2 million deaths was the result. That is the science if you like it or not. Trump acknowledged it, hence his complete U-turn on his "Easter back to normal" prediction.
  5. I just quoted the report. You didn't say anything about Trump citing projection models that said potentially 2.2 million people or more could have died. Is he also being hysterical in your opinion?
  6. Exactly. Here is why: https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2020/3/18/21184992/coronavirus-covid-19-flu-comparison-chart
  7. Trump has now changed his mind again. This report from The Guardian: Trump cited projection models that said potentially 2.2 million people or more could have died had the country tried to “wing it” and not put social distancing measures in place. “I kept asking and we did models,” he said. “These are 2.2 million people would have died. “And so, if we could hold that down, as we’re saying, to 100,000 – it’s a horrible number, maybe even less, but to 100,000, so we have between 100 [thousand] and 200,000 – we altogether have done a very good job.” He has extended the national shutdown for a further month.
  8. The virus has so far spread to almost every country on the planet. Do you think there are areas in the US where it can't reach? I really doubt that.
  9. In Italy they are just now starting to see the effects of the lock down. There are less new infections. It takes a few weeks to notice results. Richard, last week you agreed with Trump that everybody should go back to work at Easter. He's gone awfully quiet about that. What do you think now?
  10. The shutdown. My wife and our newborn at her salon on the day she had to close it.
  11. Hah, great fun! Thank you for sharing.
  12. The Chinese wet markets are where the virus crossed species. Something clearly has to change. The wet markets where livestock, wild animals and meat are sold in one place are part of the Chinese culture. It would be a huge task to shut these down since they are a massive part of local economies. And that is the reason why nothing happened to them after the first Sars outbreak. Lots of farmers would have lost their livelihoods and since "only" ca. 800 people died from Sars, the ensuing economic hardship would have been much bigger. Do you recognize the argument? Hopefully this time economic considerations won't stand in the way of change. It is ridiculous to call someone racist who points out the problem. But it is not helpful to call the virus 'Chinese". Too many idiots out there looking to attack innocent citizens.
