    Speculation from Radio Free Asia (US govt funded), that the Chinese mortality rate in more like 40-50 thousand: https://www.rfa.org/english/news/china/wuhan-deaths-03272020182846.html
  3. Bolsonaro is 65, so hopefully he will catch it ASAP.

    Both are used to treat malaria: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chloroquine https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydroxychloroquine And compare the diagram of the molecule at the upper righthand corner of the page. It is almost identical.

    A certain longtime dz.commer posted this to his FB page with the comment: "My City! My people!" https://www.mtlblog.com/people/canada/qc/montreal/montreal-grocery-store-visited-by-latex-clad-ai-from-the-future-video
  8. For example, we have learned via the Ogle Mole Network that ImageNet Consulting – an Oklahoma City-based “Information Technology Solutions” firm that sells high-dollar copiers, scanners, and IT services to companies all across the country – wanted their remaining employees to forfeit a portion of their April paycheck that is equal to the amount they will receive from their government-issued Coronavirus stimulus payment. https://www.thelostogle.com/2020/03/29/imagenet-consulating-stimulus-payment/

    60 people show up for choir practice. Physical contact is avoided. Now 45/60 have COVID-19 and 2 are dead. https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2020-03-29/coronavirus-choir-outbreak

    That would be a shame. This is the same Fox whose owner called off his birthday party out of concern about COVID-19 while the Fox talking heads were calling it a hoax, right? https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/23/business/media/fox-news-coronavirus-rupert-murdoch.html

    Q

    For most of my life I thought "patriot" meant someone who loved their country and wanted to defend it. But over the last 4 years I've learned there are people who actually think it means someone who wants to abolish democracy and its freedoms, replace it with a fascist autocracy/theocracy, and banish anyone who is the wrong color, or religion, or has the audacity to believe data and facts override faith and dogma.
  12. The Cadillac "Super Cruise" uses LIDAR to assist GPS in pinpointing immediate location, and works only on major highways that have been previously mapped by LIDAR. I think that is more economical approach than trying to make the highways smart. https://techcrunch.com/2019/06/05/gm-is-opening-up-its-super-cruise-hands-free-driving-system-to-more-roads/
  13. Bwahahaha! I can show you plenty of places where I ride in the mountains that don't even have cell service yet, let alone smart roadways.
  14. In conclusion, while both tobacco and cannabis smoke have similar properties chemically, their pharmacological activities differ greatly. Components of cannabis smoke minimize some carcinogenic pathways whereas tobacco smoke enhances some. Both types of smoke contain carcinogens and particulate matter that promotes inflammatory immune responses that may enhance the carcinogenic effects of the smoke. However, cannabis typically down-regulates immunologically-generated free radical production by promoting a Th2 immune cytokine profile. Furthermore, THC inhibits the enzyme necessary to activate some of the carcinogens found in smoke. In contrast, tobacco smoke increases the likelihood of carcinogenesis by overcoming normal cellular checkpoint protective mechanisms through the activity of respiratory epithelial cell nicotine receptors. Cannabinoids receptors have not been reported in respiratory epithelial cells (in skin they prevent cancer), and hence the DNA damage checkpoint mechanism should remain intact after prolonged cannabis exposure. Furthermore, nicotine promotes tumor angiogenesis whereas cannabis inhibits it. It is possible that as the cannabis-consuming population ages, the long-term consequences of smoking cannabis may become more similar to what is observed with tobacco. However, current knowledge does not suggest that cannabis smoke will have a carcinogenic potential comparable to that resulting from exposure to tobacco smoke.

  16. And it will also know about the landslide that is blocking the road, or the elk that are standing there?
  17. A paper published in the New England Journal of Medicine looked at more than 1,000 COVID-19 patients in China and found that people who smoke are 2.4 times more likely to become critically ill and require ventilation than those who don’t.

    Kudos to Germany for not only having a remarkably low fatality rate, and even taking in some patients from Italy: https://thehill.com/policy/international/europe/489819-germany-takes-in-some-coronavirus-patients-from-italy https://www.cbsnews.com/news/coronavirus-death-rate-mystery-germany-italy-covid-19/

  24. Hell, I didn't realize that two different Tesla's have crashed into a tractor-trailer broadside. I only recalled the 2016 incident.
