One of the ways the 60s was preferable to today is that people admitted that they were in public professions to get laid.

They still are, but all the feminist BS has forced them to pretend otherwise.

That's nice

The daffodil symbolizes rebirth and new beginnings...The Latin name for daffodil is Narcissus. It is believed to be named after the son of the river god from Greek mythology. Narcissus was celebrated for his beauty, but he was arrogant. The goddess Nemesis noticed this and lured him to a pool where he fell in love with his own reflection.

Scientists discover fossil of massive rodent-like animal called ‘crazy beast’

Scientists have discovered a remarkably intact ancient fossil of a bizarre new mammal species in Madagascar.

The remains are the first near-complete fossil of the badger-esque creature named “Adalatherium hui,” or “crazy beast,” that roamed the southern supercontinent of Gondwana 66 million years ago, according to a new study published Wednesday in Nature journal.

Even with the findings, scientists still can’t parse crazy beast’s anatomy and aren’t even sure how the animal walked. The creature is also oddly large for a mammal of its time — about 100 times bigger than the mostly rodent-sized mammals of the Mesozoic era.

Do you have an interest in the SCOTUS opinion in Georgia v. Public.Resource.Org? A fascinating 5-4 decision with the dissent led by Thomas joined by Ginsburg, Breyer and Alito. Strange bedfellows!

Initially I thought that no way, this case has to be decided 9-0. Then, remarkably (duh after reading the decision), I came around to Thomas's reasoning.

Canada has banned over 1500 "assault-style" weapons. Everything you'd think. Semiauto handguns and rimfire (I was curious about the Ruger 10-22, since those can get pretty "tactical" looking) don't seem to be on the list.

In the end, not all that difficult. Strange to see a government that can enact popular opinion.

Probably won't curb much violence, since the handguns are where it's at.

Down here in TN (Williamson County), we're on to the dessert of azaleas and rhodies.

Went to a late DINE IN lunch at our favorite bbq place, which had tables appropriately spaced out. Ate while the staff wore masks and diligently cleaned, at least while we were there. The local Target and Ace Hardware had packed lots. My wife's quilt store had a line to get in at opening. There is actually traffic again and people appear to be relaxing their social distances somewhat. It appears the psychological damage was only transient at least here while the extent of the economic damage is not yet evident. All our favorite places have reopened.

Meanwhile, Nashville/Davison County remains on extended lockdown with the Mayor asking for a 32% property tax hike.

DHS’ New Covid-19 Model Used In Supreme Court Case Already Collapsing

...
“There is no quantitative method for forecasting the COVID-19 outbreak over a six-month period; the JHU-IDD report states that its collection of scenarios is ‘not a forecast,’” according to the DHS document.
And yet, DHS officials presented this model to the State Supreme Court as an indication of things to come.
“Johns Hopkins University’s analysis shows that ending the Safer at Home order prematurely would produce a large peak in cases requiring hospitalization that exceeds current capacity. If the order is lifted and not replaced with a (still developing) containment strategy, the DHS modeling data suggests that peak hospitalizations in Wisconsin could exceed 25,000 patients during the summer—far exceeding capacity,” DHS wrote in its legal defense.
In its report on the JHU model, DHS acknowledges its numbers are far more alarming than other widely used models like those from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME). According to that model, Wisconsin reached its peak need for hospital resources on Apr. 11th, and the state’s death toll peaked on Apr. 5th.
“We note that the JHU-IDD scenarios suggest a more significant number of cases than does the Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) model. We strongly prefer the JHU-IDD scenarios based on our independent calculations,” DHS reports.
It is important to note that those independent calculations are not publicly available.
It is also important to note, again, JHU-IDD’s predictions for May 1st have been disproven as of today – May 1st. The JHU-IDD model predicted a possible May 1st death total of 1,600 – 7,500. IHME predicts 336 will ultimately die of coronavirus in Wisconsin. The actual numbers show a death total of 316 on the morning of May 1st. DHS insists this is no time to relax the shelter-in-place order and reopen Wisconsin.
“Given that the result of under-estimating cases is more Wisconsinites losing their lives, it seems prudent to be cautious,” DHS states.
Even though this second model is already falling apart, DHS needs it because the first model has already played out and also fallen apart.
That first model predicted 440 – 1,500 deaths and 22,000 positive cases by Apr. 8th unless Wisconsinites followed Evers’ Safer at Home order. That model has largely been discredited by Palm’s own statements.

More evidence that WHO and CDC completely screwed up in their treatment recommendations. More evidence President Donald John Trump was correct in his optimism.

How could this be? Actually, the answer to that is both simple and disconcerting to TDS sufferers. He’s a businessman and smarter than your average bear. (Aside: Who’s old enough to get that?) He’s used to drawing conclusions with incomplete evidence, and making decisions quickly. Quite the opposite of how politicians work. Furthermore, in his pre-presidential career, his decisions affected him and his family directly, whether they were right or wrong. Politicians are insulated from the consequences of bad choices. It’s why so many of them are socialists.

So... Lots of States have let their home arrest rules expire;
in Lots of other States; LARGE Numbers of people are VIOLATING Their governor's Orders

SO... In a Fortnight, if there ISN'T a LARGE (HUGE!) increase in Covid-19 cases...

Will All the Experts (Igna, Ken, etc) ADMIT that lockdowns were a COMPLETE WASTE of time and money?
Because tens (scores! (HUNDREDS!!)) of thousands of people are NOW doing the things that WERE SO TERRIBLE, that it was WELL WORTH destroying the world economy over

So Experts? Want to go ON RECORD, stating what
A) WILL HAPPEN in 14 days?
B) WHAT You WILL SAY, if those things Do NOT happen?

I believe that we have reached the time... to fish, or cut bait

Talking to one of my neighbors who's been listening to some program put out by WHO, "the authority on COVID-19." They are busy pushing the theory that the pandemic as a result of climate change and the effects it has had on the environment. I pointed out all the times the WHO has been wrong, denying human to human transmission, etc., and then my neighbor confided that she deeply believes "the virus was made in a lab maybe because the US owes China so much money." Very interesting. At the least you could make an argument that China would like democracies destabilized and destroyed.

Meanwhile a caravan of honking cars passed by with honking horns and displaying large signs, "STRIKE!" May day parade. Local Bernyites.

I am beginning to wonder if the WHO has political motivations, if it has been packed with communists, etc., like the way the UN Human Rights Council has been packed with totalitarian regimes guilty of the worst human rights abuses?

MJB Wolf: I'll give you full credit for the data and graph; but I have to mark you down for presentation. My own observation is that we've been plateaued at ~ 2,200 deaths per day for the last 20 days. How deaths are being counted is still a bit of a mystery, but you make your analysis on the data you have, not the date you wish you had.

Question for everyone here who lives in states with "loosened" stay-at-home or gradual re-opening.

Our Governor Snakeoil Inslee finally issued a "plan" (but no dates!!) for phased re-opening.

As I read it, if you are over 65 (like Althouse and me) you are automatically "high risk" and must stay home. You may not interact with anyone outside your house. You may not take part in essential activities. You may not take part in recreation.

The state will not fully re-open until Phase 4 at which "high risk" individuals may "resume public interaction with proper social distancing". Phase 4 will not start until there is a vaccine.

are other states restricting healthy seniors in their re-opening plans?

Surely there is a lawsuit somewhere in there re ageism

I've lived in Irvine for a couple years now -- long enough to gauge the local politics. It seems obvious to me that Gavin Newsom is singling out Huntington Beach and Newport Beach for their past non cooperation with Sanctuary City movements and coddling the homeless. Meanwhile, uber-liberal Laguna Beach is allowed to officially open their beaches on weekday mornings. It's all political theater.

"Good News. We've beaten back the scourge of Pneumonia."

To see Jon's link, you have to copy the link he provided and paste it in a new window. However, I will describe it- Jon's line provides a graph of US weekly pneumonia deaths that looks like it goes to mid-late March (week 11 of the year ends on March 17th). The graph includes the previous 6 years, and the data on Jan 1st ranges between about 5,600/wk (2015 and 2018) to about 4000/wk (2019 and 2020)- a pretty tight range for this kind of mortality data. Typically, pneumonia deaths subside after the 1st week of January, and all previous years showd the band tightening down to 3800-4500/wk by mid March. However, 2020 started dropping much more precipitously and by the week of March 10-17, had hit 2400 when the previous 6 years had all be above 3800- a difference of 1400 pneumonia deaths/week.

It will be interesting to see the data once it is updated from mid March to today's date. In the previous six years, pneumonia deaths are still above 3000/wk at this time of year- the graph for 2020 was dropping like a rock destined for zero pneumonia deaths week of May 1st. I suspect that this, right here, accounts for at least 20% of the COVID-19 deaths accounted for since March 10th, illigitimately assigned or not. In short, in accounting this way, a person either dies of pneumonia or dies of COVID- the coroner has to pick one for the tallies from the CDC.

Yancey Ward said...

Narciso's link has the story. When I saw Tennessee's new cases number, I was a bit shocked, but then I compared the county level data, almost 1000 of the 1156 new cases came from Truesdale County which went from 123 cases yesterday to 1102 today- when I saw that, I knew it had to be a prison, and sure enough, it was. This will be seen in prison after prison if you test for it- probably worse than a subway car for spreading it.

I went to my five-weeks-delayed annual physical today. I have A-fib! That's the worst, in fact so far the only bad, news--the full report ought to be done tomorrow, and my GP already set me up at the cardiac clinic Monday morning. And a new drug to take (blood thinner). I hate taking pills, legal or otherwise.

I've had a couple of treadmill tests in the last 25 years or so but they never show much.
They've probably gotten better while my heart has gotten worse.

I got a pneumonia vaccine--it might be the second since last fall, but I can't remember things like that and I was assured it won't hurt to get two.

But if course never be at zero, such is nature.

Unfortunately, in a completely unexpected development, several child molesters have already molested more children.

I hope those children understand that what happened to them was a necessary societal "good" and if it takes dozens and hundreds of children getting molested to save just one life, it will have been worth it.....according to the usual suspects.
