He Has 17,700 Bottles of Hand Sanitizer and Nowhere to Sell Them
Amazon cracked down on coronavirus price gouging. Now, while the rest of the world searches, some sellers are holding stockpiles of sanitizer and masks.

hobbitt's employer shared the hurt several times over the years, keeping the talent employed but on lower wages. The lower paid employees had the smallest hurt, and corporate officers were on minimum wage. It got the company through several tough times.

You have a nice gig there. Sounds very social. Ish.
 
Talent, this is the operative word.  If our department were not so essential this would not be happening.   The less talented and important to the company will not be so fortunate just as the rest of the business world.  I know I am blessed, I also know that I am good at what I do and others that are not will not fare so well.  It is called capitalism.

They shut down the schools in Los Angeles, San Diego and Riverside county school districts here in California.
My wife who works within the Riverside county district is happy for a break.

Foreign tests and foreign masks... 
With the United States struggling to meet coronavirus testing demands, China, which appears to have made progress managing the outbreak, has tried to become a resource for other nations.

On Friday, the Jack Ma Foundation and Alibaba Foundation said they would donate 500,000 testing kits and one million masks to the United States to help it deal with the pandemic. Alibaba is China’s biggest online retailer, and Mr. Ma is the company’s co-founder and former executive chairman.

“Drawing from my own country’s experience, speedy and accurate testing and adequate personal protective equipment for medical professionals are most effective in preventing the spread of the virus,” Mr. Ma said in a statement.

Mr. Ma said that the two foundations had, in recent weeks, also donated similar resources to Japan, Korea, Italy, Iran and Spain.

But, but, Don the Con said he would extend paid sick leave. On television.

offee Robot at SFO.  Must have a credit card to use it.  The wife is currently on a 3 plus hour layover before she gets on the next leg to home.  She says the place is deserted.  It was pretty busy on the way out 10 days earlier.  The plane from Santa Ana to SF was pretty much empty.  On a UAL plane both ways.  The lady who pushed her wheelchair to the next gate said that overall traffic has gone way, way down.

Overall she says she feels safe and from what she could tell, everything was being kept pretty clean.  Hope so because she goes back out a week from Saturday.

BTW, in doing some searching for her return flight on Southwest this time, there are plenty of $66 flights from CLE to LAX coming up at the end of the month and though at least April
 
There's a company in Austin called 'Briggo' with a similar machine. You order on your smartphone then go pick it up. First installation was on the Dell campus, it was wildly successful. There's one in the Austin airport too, not sure if there's any others.

I've also heard about a smoothie-making robot, but it may only be in development.

We're supposed to go to Italy end of April. Who knows what things will look like by then.
