  1. That's great, but my degree is in psychology so I not only know what you and the virologist are thinking, but why you are thinking it and what caused you to think it.
  2. Opening Statement of Professor Pamela S. Karlan (12/4/2019) ..."imagine living in a part of Louisiana or Texas that’s prone to devastating hurricanes and flooding. What would you think if, when your governor asked the federal government for the disaster assistance that Congress has provided, the President responded, “‘I would like you to do us a favor.’ I’ll meet with you and send the disaster relief once you brand my opponent a criminal.”?"
  3. Let's say you could go back in time to 9/10/2001. You would be the exact age you were on that day and you are given the ability to press a button and the attacks on 9/11 never occur. Not only that but the plot is never revealed so the post event restrictions and government changes never are implemented. BUT Everything about your life from that point on is different. You dont meet your current spouse or gf. Your kids arent the same. Events, parties, trips, everything changes from that point forward. You get to live your life from 9/10/2001 in this new reality with full memories of how your other, 9/11 post event life played out. Basically you get to redo from that point forward but remember the first go around. Do you do it?
  4. This is from a good friend of mine: www.checkforcorona.com For the past 2 weeks, my project team and I have been developing a COVID-19 screening software. The tool serves in two ways: 1) helps focus healthcare resources on patients that really need help, and 2) calms fears and reduces demand on the healthcare system from people who are unlikely to need immediate assistance or testing. My team is working remotely from various different locations to integrate the application with healthcare and governmental agencies’ back-end systems, starting with the agencies in Houston/Harris County, TX. We are doing this pro-bono. A freestanding version of the screener is now available at CheckForCorona. (A freestanding version not integrated with any city, state, or hospital, etc.) The tool leads you through questions relevant to COVID-19 and navigates you through the logic to reach guidance on your symptoms. The tool does NOT collect any personal information, although optionally sharing your zip code helps gather data on the potential level of exposure per region. (Please note that just because you don’t have symptoms does not mean you are not infected.) This is the *only* tool that is "official" using the up-to-date information on COVID-19. For example, for the Houston/ Harris County site launch (launched this Monday), my software project team (a collaboration of Luminare, Inc. and Cognitect, Inc.) has worked with doctors, nurses, city officials, state officials, call-centers, testing sites, police officers, judges, first responders, the Feds, Microsoft, etc. just to launch Houston/ Harris County. The next site is Fort Bend County, TX and more cities, hospitals, universities, etc. coming. I sincerely hope NC (or at least Raleigh) can get on board with this as we do not have a reliable tool in our region guiding our public and reducing unnecessary demand on our healthcare workers. Not to mention we do not want to waste any test kits while our country has so little of it.
  5. 4,400 Currently, the MC consists of over 4,400 active duty physicians representing all the specialties and subspecialties of civilian medicine. They may be assigned to fixed military medical facilities, to deployable combat units or to military medical research and development duties. 4500 active duty physicians are employed by the Army; 4000 by the Navy; and approximately 3500 by the Air Force.
  6. 827 in Italy so far. We are behind them in terms of time. I.E. if they are at day 20 we are at day 5. Expect it to get worse.

  9. Who is to say they haven't? The narrow directive on who to test just opened up in the past 2-3 days.
  10. Purely speculation here: Late January 2 of our kids had a high fever (101-102) for 4 days and a cough. Doctors said neither had strep or the flu (tested negative) but a lower respiratory rattling going on. They were both put on amoxicillin just in case it was pneumonia developing. Now I am thinking they both had the coronavirus and this has been floating around for a couple months longer then first thought.
  11. FWIW i live in Wake County so I am allowed to say it
  12. HAHAHA, Wake County NC just confirmed a positive test. SUCK IT DUKE BLUE DEVILS!
