  1. I can't speak for the validity of these numbers but.... Isn't that a 4.4% fatality rate? In other words... One out of 23 patients who enter the hospital with Covid19 have died. I don't gamble, but I don't think those are great odds.
  2. What did happen to it? Why don't you tell us? Having freedom of speech does not absolve the speaker from possible ridicule or embarrassment. Not sure either of those things have happened in this case.... I for one, am glad that Mr. Soloman gave us 'his take'. I think it goes to show the level of disparity in America today with regards to Covid19.
  3. This is not a debate about immigration. They weren't alone, until the very end. Their 'family' lives with them in the studio apartment. They know 'America', they work here. Are you suggesting they don't pay taxes or deserve anything for working in this country? How much does a pine box for a mass grave cost?
  4. So pretty much everyone in this 'conversation' except me. If I understand you correctly... Since these people are not 'supposedly' American citizens, their deaths are less significant? What difference does it make where they come from? They died on American soil doing jobs that are offered to them by other Americans. Did I misunderstand you?
  5. I think I know who you're talking about. If it's the same guy.... I purchased an 800 from him about 2 years back. A few months later, I was able to trade that 800 straight across for a 4000 and assorted coils. If it had been me, in your situation, I would have just bought a hat. Take care Mac.
  6. 328 million is a lot. Maybe if we subtract out 63 million, the task would be a bit more manageable.
  7. The brand name of your rear tire is a bit ironic. Nice gold !!
  8. Well then I guess it's time for me to just sit back and allow you guys to 'educate' me. I won't provide any more of my 'facts'. Take care everyone.
  9. What are you talking about? What do 'ratings' have to do with anything? Care to mention any names? I'm less concerned with the ones you 'ruled out' and would like to know which ones you trust. Honest question. Luke
  10. Here's a link: This is a YouTube link where a doctor debunks the other two doctors who had a 'press conference' the other day. This guy makes some good points and there's a little 'nugget' at the end which may satisfy some of you guys. Take a look.
  11. This does seem promising. I read through it twice, where did you get your 'timeline' from? Previously, 18 months was the benchmark for development of a new vaccine. I know we're all in a hurry and most likely some 'corners' will be cut along the way, but the time is based on how long it takes to test people and collect data. I don't believe you can speed up the immune response or lack thereof. Besides efficacy, safety is important too. Which is another reason why 18 months was the previous time. Hope it happens sooner than later.
  12. Weaver, Would you please at least summarize these links for us? What are you trying to say?
  13. “Preliminary data has demonstrated coronavirus killing. The coronavirus resides in human tissues, specifically in the trachea and all the way down into the lungs,” said Disbrow. “It is thought to primarily reside in the upper airway, where if you can kill it early and kill it within the cells while preserving the healthy cells, that would be the golden ticket. The idea is that we would get this down the trachea, where the coronavirus is going to primarily reside, and then you have a chance to improve outcomes by reducing the viral load.” How can you 'kill it early' when the patient
  14. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/live-updates-as-quarantine-fatigue-spreads-fauci-says-second-wave-of-coronavirus-is-inevitable/ar-BB13lEuR?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=edgsp Here are some bullet points from the above link: Here are some significant developments: The U.S. economy shrank by 4.8 percent from January through March as it saw the worst slowdown in growth since the Great Recession. Nearly half of the world’s workforce is at risk of losing their incomes as the pandemic continues to disrupt lives and economies around the globe, a U.N. agency warned. Japanes
  15. Why has it taken four years? It's still not approved. Still under testing. Still no proof it does more good than harm. The timing of this 'release' seems more like a smart marketing move than something that will actually be helpful in this situation. IMHO.
  16. Yes the Electoral College had a winner. But you're wrong about who the 65 million people voted for. The winner of the election only got 62,984,828 votes. The loser, had almost 3 million more with 65,853,514 Just under 60% of the eligible voting population cast a vote in 2016. Over 40% did not vote. Using simple math, less than 30% of the voting population supported the winner.
  17. Yeah, Slim.... I ridiculed it. How can the light get everywhere inside your lungs? Think about it. Even the 3-D model shows it just in the larynx. It's like saying, "I'm going to clean the bathroom." And then only mopping the floor on the way to the toilet. Say you actually 'disinfected' the lungs with the light. How do you 'clean' the other organs and tissues? I guess that's why the disinfectant was suggested. (Sarcasm) What would be a 'game changer' is if there was enough testing available like previously 'promised'. Once effective testing measures can be impl
  18. The Company is engaging with the research team at Cedars-Sinai and the FDA to determine an expedited regulatory process to potentially enable near-term use of the technology initially as a coronavirus intervention for critically ill intubated patients. Disbrow continued, “This first-in-class technology has the potential to be a game changer for clinicians treating patients infected with coronavirus and other respiratory conditions, and our team is working tirelessly alongside the Cedars-Sinai team to determine the safety and effectiveness of this device in humans.” Interesting
  19. I just wanted to 'follow up' with regards to the idea the UV light could be used inside the body for treating any disease. After consulting with 'the doctor' just now.... Even IF you were able to 'bathe' every nook and cranny in your lungs with UV light, the virus is in your bloodstream too. To take the absurd idea one step further.... UV light causes 'sunburns'. How would blistering your mucus membranes make it easier to fight Covid19? I won't bother to mention cellular mutation and cancer. Just think. Please.
  20. If you think that a couple of doctors have a better idea than all the rest..... Sorry to say, the damage is done. The economy is not going to rebound overnight. Or before the election.... What will make things worse is being in a hurry to undo what we did to reduce the numbers so far. A 'second wave' will cause more death and disruption which will cause the economic recovery to be further protracted. If only America could have been better prepared.
  21. Very nice !! When you know there's gold in the dirt, 'slowing down' takes on a whole new meaning. Congrats !!
  22. Congrats on those nugs !! You're on a roll.....
  23. Wow man.... Nice work, WTG, all of the above....
