Well things are improving here daily. My airline announced the 40 days unpaid leave has been reduced to 15 days. We are at 75 flights a day and growing.

I remember buying one of those 30 day buckets of food for emergencies. It's mostly dry stuff like pasta and freeze dried soup like in a MRE. I received grief and eye rolls until very recently when the advice to stock up food for two weeks was given. I'm so trying not to act smug.

Currently receiving texts from our school district concerning the virus asking students and students that have family with flu like symptoms to stay home. A link to the district was provided.

They really are telling us here to stock up on food, medicines, and necessities. Might be a good time to at least prepare for a few things.

It's getting irritating to me.

I've got a mild chronic cough, and now every time I do somebody is giving me the evil eye.

Don't imagine it will be long before they are in my face over it.

I picked up some meats yesterday and the store here is fully stocked. Same next town over. Guess mass panic and stupidity is a big city thing.

Stocking up on bread? Yes, I want to eat that after 3 weeks

Our society seems to have become so sissified... everybody needs to be canceled, shamed, protested, fired or scared of the next flu. Life happens, when its your time.. its your time.

I've given up worrying about next week/month/year.. and have started worrying about today for the last few years as I get older.

There's always a silver lining/ a bright side to everything somewhere.

A global run on TP...
this means fewer trees.
A win for me.

Actually, paper production results in more trees, not less. A fact that is ignored by most of the Gretanistas.

Interesting data is showing up today.

Some (8 so far) new "retrograde"cases are showing up in the Shanghai area of China and the source of the new infections is not Wuhan, but instead, have been traced back to.............Italy.
https://nypost.com/2020/03/...o-italy-report-says/

Korea's cases are increasing, over 5300 now but only 28 have died.

Europe's cases are expanding and increasing in numbers. A few days ago, only Italy had much red in it. That has quickly changed and will likely get worse as testing increases and the 2 week window narrows.

Italy now has about 1/2 as many total cases as S. Korea, but 79 have died from it in Italy.

Sure, it's a lot of trees... but I'd hardly call it a forest.




I'm not against forestry, not at all. We need wood. But let's be honest... it takes a very long time to replace an old-growth forest.

I don't really want to go too far off topic here, but old growth forest, as far as their timber usefulness is concerned comes in board feet, and specifically large beams and wide width dimensional lumber. Paper comes from small and much younger trees and from the byproducts from medium size saw logs....trees with diameter greater than 10". I sold a lot of pulpwood (which is where paper comes from nowadays) that were trunks 3"-4"-8" in diameter. (Byproducts means the limbs and ends of the saw logs...what many mills call chip-N-saw. The mill saws the big part of the trunk into boards and chips everything else for paper and waferboard/MDF)

Here in the lower US, Southern yellow pine species is where most of the dimensional lumber comes from (the 2x4..2x6s...2x8s etc. Also where the majority of utility poles come from. 4 subspecies. long leaf, loblolly, shortleaf, and slash pine are all in the yellow pine family, which is different from white and ponderosa pine.
Utility pole production takes longer than normal pine timber for dimensional lumber, but even 40' tall x 12/13" dia utility pole trees can be grown in 10-15 years if managed correctly.

This kind of thing irritates me a good bit. Person A tested positive and was supposed to self isolate, but broke isolation..Now, if I understand the paragraph, he has infected someone else..a person B
https://www.thedartmouth.co...cond-person-infected

 
quote
A second Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center employee has tested positive for novel coronavirus and is isolated at home.

The man was in close contact with the first case in the state — a DHMC employee who had recently traveled to Italy — who attended an invite-only Tuck School of Business event at The Engine Room in White River Junction. DHMC has contacted anyone who might have been in contact with the first case during the private event.

The first individual attended the event on Friday despite being directed by health officials to self-isolate, and the state has since issued “an official order of isolation” to the man.


What a nice guy eh?

Makes total sense. It would be an absolute crime to use old-growth trees for pulp and paper production.

This is from the Daily Mail, so read this with caution. But, supposedly there are actually two strains of the Covid-19 virus.

OK, some personal experience.

I was in emerg from 9pm last night to 930 this morning.

I got asked a couple of questions on travel and symptoms on admission but that was it. No signs whatever of special precautions here or anything. Spent a few waiting hours chatting with a cop and cute paramedic and for them its aware but business as usual with the virus.

No it's not serious and nothing is broken but sure as hell feels like it is. Exrays were fine.

I dropped an air conditioner on my foot wearing running shoes.

You can all stop laughing now.

What? You are putting in an air conditioner at this time of the year? I know you Canadians have a different metabolism, but most air conditioners won't even work if below 45 *F.

Least expensive time to purchase an air conditioner is usually in the middle of winter.....inversely, buy heaters in August.

So true! A few years ago (in late spring or summer) I was across the border picking up eBay items from US vendors that were shipped for me to Blaine Washington, and I dropped into Walmart to look around. In an aisle was a pallet piled high with oil-filled radiator space heaters that they were clearing out for $7 apiece.



I didn't even need a space heater, but I bought two! I would've bought more... but I was driving the '88 Formula and I figured no more than two heaters would fit (along with the rest of the stuff I had already picked up).

20 bucks for a 1-year old window unit from a guy who sold his house and the new one has central air. Nice one with remote.

I'll use the new one this year and sell the old one in July when they get top dollar.

Interesting part here is the Canadian Forces are preparing for a 25% absentee rate. I'm betting they know one hell of a lot more than we do or has been publicly released.

I don't think that can happen here with our HIPA rules. Of course I don't know what Canada has for rules though.

Did you bother reading it?
It clearly stated the patient ALSO had encephalitis, an illness that has always been known to cause brain inflammation. Any viral infection (and some bacterial infections) can cause encephalitis, where the person's own immune system mistakenly attacks the brain. It's been around forever and most certainly way before Covid-19.

I fervently hope this thread soon dies from lack of new input,but doesn't seem like it will happen very quickly.
https://www.cbsnews.com/liv...-updates-2020-03-05/

3 new cases here in my state in the last 2 days 1 in Fort Bend County (immediately SW of Houston) and 2 in Harris County which is the county that most of Houston is located in. All 3 are people that recently traveled to and returned from Egypt. None had symtoms at first so they went about their business for a couple of weeks before becoming symptomatic and being diagnosed with it, so it's likely there will be more cases in this area from those 3.

https://www.click2houston.c...ed-in-harris-county/

 
quote
HOUSTON – Harris County officials say a man and a woman are confirmed to have coronavirus Thursday and are currently hospitalized. The female patient is a staff member of Rice University, officials said.

These cases are the second and third cases confirmed in the greater Houston area.

A “presumptive positive” case was announced in Fort Bend County Wednesday. All three patients returned from a trip to Egypt in late February where officials say they contracted the virus. They didn’t show symptoms immediately and so they went about their business as usual for a few days, officials said.

Officials are working to determine who else was on the trip with the three people and some people they came in direct contact with are under self-quarantine, officials said.

All three patients are currently hospitalized and are in stable condition, officials said. The patients from Harris County are from an unincorporated area of northwest Harris County, outside of the city of Houston.

"These cases are travel-related and, at this time, there is no evidence of community spread,” officials wrote in a press release.

maryjane, I hope it does too. It actually is on the down slide in China, but these infections are going to be around for a while. Unfortunately.

Europe and South Korea are exploding right now. And we in the US hope that doesn't happen here.

Researchers associated with China's Peking University of Beijing have published a report that they say is based on evidence that the coronavirus Covid-19 has evolved into two different strains.
 
quote
Known as types L and S, type L made up around 70% of the cases the team sampled, which they described as the more “aggressive” of the two.

But other researchers and scholars are disputing the significance of that report.

Oh, I just checked. I guess I kind of duplicated something that has already been singled out by MadMark.

If your dear leader doesn't want to protect you Canadians, fine. But, we might just build a wall to keep you and your countrymen from contaminating the US.

Things not to do these days:

When in Walmart getting the groceries and you grab the beer. It's probably a bad idea to holler down the isle to the wife "I've got the corona".

(I am so damn tempted to do it)

Does the "L" strain of the virus come with a lime?

There might be a silver lining to it. With any luck Comrade Idiot falls victim to his own stupidity.

Wow, is Iran getting hit now. They have been hit pretty hard already, but today they have registered over 1200 new patients of Covid-19. This is not a good sign for them. And of course as pointed out above, they are blaming the US for this. I guess if you don't have any real idea of what is going on or how to handle it, you just blame it on someone else. And of course you would blame it on the Great Satan if you are an Iranian leader. The US has agreed to help them out, but they are being true to their beliefs and refusing help until the US drops all the sanctions. Would you call that cutting off your nose to spite yourself?
