  1. Including that you had your wife check your work made this post go from good to great.
     
  2. shouldn't it be israel will come out with the first vaccine and then shortly after china will come out with the generic equivalent that is roughly half floor wax?
     
  3. Tell JZ and JAD hello for me.
     
  4. Jet A-1 burned to haul the cloth bags from TX puts more CO2 into the atmosphere than manufacture of plastic bags. How can one claim to love marine life when one hates Gaia?

  9. Slight variance here... my wife and myself live in Prosper and our population like so many towns in Texas has exploded by the likes of residents from California, New York, Connecticut and Kentucky. All of them except those who came with the corporate headquarters move with Toyota are a bit over helmeing with their ideas. In short if I had the power I'd send them all packing back to NY, Cal, Conn. But from all of this has come the creative bumper stickers. Some have seen some good ones I'm sure, but the best so far is...DON'T CALIFORNIA OUR TEXAS.

    I hope the media is catching the attendance at some of sporting events. Big soccer event at the Frisco soccer stadium today and they are expecting a sell out! That stadium is large and for the last 4 to 5 years some lower division championship college football games are played there. A large crowd there is a large crowd. BTW that Toyota Stadium is a first class facility. Frisco is becoming a sports meca. Cowboys, Rangers, three to four high school stadiums that seat near 50 thousand. Professional golf is moving its headquarters there and building a spectacular facility. Word is on the street some 15 to 20 thousand trees have been ordered for the golf courses. The land being above Jerry's Star facility and tree less. It's no wonder we're getting people. Midland I understand is one of the hottest markets in the country placing itself above Austin, SanAntone re: zillow.

    Bless y'all
     
  10. your property taxes have to be frozen because the people i know who live in frisco are looking to get out because the school district taxes are absurd between the new admin building which is too damn lavish and jerry fleeced the voters into backing his practice facility.

  11. I don't think the school district taxes are materially higher any other city in the DFW area, at least not enough to make someone move. They are lower than in some suburbs.

  12. There's someone sucking people in, alright, but it aint the medjia:
    Trump says a vaccine is coming soon. Experts say not so fast.
    During a coronavirus roundtable Monday with his task force and heads of pharmaceutical companies, Trump appeared to suggest that a vaccine for the coronavirus could be just a few months away.

    "I don't know what the time will be. I've heard very quick numbers, that of months. And I've heard pretty much a year would be an outside number. So I think that's not a bad range. But if you're talking about three to four months in a couple of cases, a year in other cases," Trump said.

    At the same news conference, Trump said the number of cases "within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero. That's a pretty good job we've done."

    "We're going very substantially down, not up," Trump added."


    Meanwhile, experts involved with the development of vaccines, including the CEOs of the (U.S.) companies that will be making them, say it will absolutely NOT happen in calendar year 2020, in terms of having it hit the street. Best case according to them, with the most rapid possible development, would be greater than one calendar year FROM NOW. Something like 14-16 months.

    The "coming soon" thing is just Trump speaking out of his behind thinking he knows what he's talking about (what else is new?). This will take time. A lot of it. Especially since we know so little about it and the mutation schedule. (Not commenting on the severity of the virus. That's up for debate.)
     
  14. Lmao, so great. Post of the day for me.

  15. Ex-Trump Adviser Sounds Alarm on Coronavirus

    March 10, 2020 at 5:34 pm EDT By Taegan Goddard 127 Comments

    Former White House homeland security adviser Thomas Bossert, who coordinated the U.S. response to global pandemics before his position was cut, told NBC News that time is running out to control the spread of coronavirus.

    Said Bossert: “We are 10 days from our hospitals getting creamed.”
     
  16. I saw an interview this am with a doctor who coordinates such responses on a national level. The statement from him that jumped out at me was that 20 years ago, our hospitals had a bed capacity of either 1.3 or 1.4 million. Now it's under a million.

    In Hong Kong the hospitals have created "Covid response teams" made up of volunteers who work nothing but Covid cases for, IIRC something like 3 weeks at a time. Seems like a smart approach in terms of limiting staff exposure, but it robs the hospitals of specialists because they have to be quarantined themselves. The guy explaining the process was a cardiologist, who hadn't seen a cardiology patient in all that time.
     
  17. New York Presbyterian Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in the world, only has 100 ICU beds.

    Insane how low the medical infrastructure (inside the box: eg. hospital beds/equipment) growth rate is.
