When travel, concerts, ballgames, schools are closed or restricted, when we're stuck at home,when the world seems to be ending, we still have music.
Thanks Tom Edison, Guglielmo  Marconi, and all for the gift of recorded music.
Thanks Bill & Becca

U.K. Shields Its Economy From the Virus, but Not Yet Its People
As the total number of confirmed cases in Britain rose to nearly 500, the country’s aggressive economic rescue plan had contrasted starkly with its public-health response to the epidemic.

A top U.S. official said the nation cannot process coronavirus tests as quickly, easily or in the same volume as other countries — even as the virus spreads to 44 states — and that’s “a failing.”

“The system is not really geared to what we need right now, what you are asking for. That is a failing,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Thursday at a hearing on the nation’s preparedness for the outbreak.

“The idea of anybody getting it easily the way people in other countries are doing it, we’re not set up for that. Do I think we should be? Yes. But we’re not,” Fauci testified.

The virus has now spread across 44 states and Washington, D.C., Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, announced during the hearing. (...)

“The truth is we’ve under-invested in the public health labs,” Redfield said. “There’s not enough equipment, there’s not enough people, there’s not enough internal capacity, there’s no search capacity.”

Correct and/or/but this line of thinking pisses me off. Nobody's asking the government to take care of us. But the government does need to do a few things that are 100% in their purview: disseminate quality information and provide leadership. Prepare for closures and disruption. Order closures where applicable. Our local and state leaders look to the federal leaders for guidance; if that guidance is stupid, conflicted, or nonexistent, the people on the ground are less likely to take practical steps. And so hey we're Italy.

 


Regarding sirdroseph's post, Yes, agreed. However, it should be noted the usual big government haters are: (Wall Street) running to the Fed for rate cuts, (CEO's) demanding another round of tax cuts, (OPEC) wants to control Oil production and (Airlines) are currently lobbying for a bailout.  Apparently big government allows for save-the-economy 'rescue-bailouts' for them, but insists that same spending would be 'socialism' for the people.

What happened to the 'let the free market decide' meme?

The first link was posted yesterday and it's good so good for posting it again

The second one is from January and I didn't read it because of that; EDIT: I read it, it's good. Has some points I hadn't thought of but is basically first aid protocols re: BSI. But calling it the Wuhan Virus was part of the problem early on: a certain segment of the population, who live in White Houses especially, allowed themselves to think it was a Wuhan problem.

No, a certain amount of selfishness is warranted. What pisses me off is when asking people who work for me (in this case the gov't) to do the thing I hired them to do is equated with asking the gov't to take care of me. I didn't ask the gov't *for* anything, certainly nothing for myself. You, alone, can't do much to mitigate the effects of this thing in the community around you. Sure, you can protect yourself, as everyone should to the best of their ability. But most people have to go to work today. HAVE TO. Until someone in authority steps up and says they don't. You can wish all day long for everyone to do the exactly right thing without that authority voice, but that way lies madness. Lay madness. As it were.

They don't have to be mutually exclusive.   Governments can and should help limit the spread and support your "realm management" protocals.  Consumed...no, just looking for a bit of help from a stable genius and his wonderful, brilliant, rotating staff.

Instead of planning for meals in the bunker, maybe it's time to get ahead of these issues and pick leaders who might avoid or mitigate these issues. Pouring accelerants on the flames from the golf course via twitter rarely calms people down.

At least you'll have a payroll tax cut and a hotel industry bail-out while you're in hiding.

You can easily work from home, yes?
 
Not as easy (smaller monitor etc.) but I get by. But we don't have much retail traffic (customers in the office) and only 3 humans max. most days. Our social distancing is baked in at this point. Plus it's easier to disinfect the office, so I really think going to the office is a better choice for me. If I get sick with anything, then sure.

A guy was in a couple of weeks ago just sneezing all over the place. Pre-corona, but still. Pissed us all off and we had to shove him out. Over time, we just sort of let people come in and hang out but that's done. There's a little more stringent rule in place about people coming into the back. We say the dog bit someone. Good dog. Kill.


 
Some of my work right now can only be done from home and that meant I moved the rest of the task home, too. I needed to have a radio antenna and gateway set up and connected to the internet. The IT contractor wanted to charge $17K to do a security assessment, even though I had sent the information that I believed showed no security risk. So I attached the antenna to my chimney and set it up at home.

But previously the company IT department totally stuffed up my computer order and, after about a year, I ended up with 3 computers and six new monitors, plus a couple of older monitors. So now I have a pretty good setup to work at home.
