  1. 5 states just asked for a trillion dollars says Newson. So we'll need 10 trillion to bail out all 50 states. And I didn't even realize I had been smoking crack before his speech today but that's the only thing that could explain it. @GavinNewsom · 57m NEW: Without federal support, states will be forced to make impossible decisions. Today—CA, OR, WA, NV, CO, and our legislative leaders have joined together to ask the federal government for $1 trillion to protect our schools, public health, an
  2. Reading Jeff on Twitter he says L-shaped, Fed powerless because banks won't create credit period, output crashing - decades long depression - compares to the 1930's and Japan... says the fragility has been building for years and the virus was just the trigger. In other words he's a bundle of joy! https://alhambrapartners.com/2020/05/04/eurodollar-universitys-making-sense-episode-6-shocking-to-some-fragility/ https://twitter.com/JeffSnider_AIP Oh and Elon Musk says he's pulling Tesla out of California and moving it to TX or NV and is using Alameda County, C
  3. California doom: Staggering $54 billion budget deficit looms The Newsom administration now predicts a jobless rate of 18% for the nation’s most populous state — 46% higher than the height of the Great Recession a decade ago. https://www.ktvu.com/news/california-doom-staggering-54-billion-budget-deficit-looms
  4. Members of congress should totally divest of all publicly traded shares. I am sick and tired of these people getting rich in office and clinging to power until they are in their 90's. Now they complain they are not fit enough to serve in the House before they are too old during a pandemic. They are a disgrace and should resign if they are not fit enough to lead in the middle of an unmitigated disaster.
  5. Who is Peter Daszak & Eco Health Alliance? Who is Edward Holmes? What is PREDICT? Be safe!
  6. o·mer·tà /ōˈmertə/ noun (as practiced by the Mafia) a code of silence about criminal activity and a refusal to give evidence to authorities. "loyal to the oath of omertà" Used in a sentence: Q: Did the Wuhan lab leak a virus? A: Stick to the Omertà! Who is Peter Daszak?
  7. Finding the origin of any epidemic is considered one of the top priorities. You can't stop it from happening again until you local and render the source safe. If the source was the lab, the wet market or someplace else we need to know.
  8. The rewilding may be closer at hand than we would like to believe.
  9. We had some "social unease" today when some nut jobs showed up with guns (open carry) inside the Michigan State House.
  10. He claimed today with high degree of confidence the virus came from the Wuhan Lab. That was a first.

  13. The Lancet Remdesivir in adults with severe COVID-19: a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicentre trial 29 Apr 2020: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)31022-9/fulltext#.Xqmlt9dsTmw.twitter Not looking as good as the market is making it out to be. It doesn't seem to really budge the needle that much in adverse effects which is what I was hoping for - see table 4. We're still seeing significant thrombocytopenia. And oddly they only found 1% had DVT whereas in most studies in the US - serious cases have an alarming rate. What is going on
  14. This is just a press release - let's wait for the medical journal article and then we'll see the true stats laid out.
  15. April 29, 2020 Gilead Announces Results From Phase 3 Trial of Investigational Antiviral Remdesivir in Patients With Severe COVID-19 -- Study Demonstrates Similar Efficacy with 5- and 10-Day Dosing Durations of Remdesivir - https://www.gilead.com/news-and-press/press-room/press-releases/2020/4/gilead-announces-results-from-phase-3-trial-of-investigational-antiviral-remdesivir-in-patients-with-severe-covid-19
  16. Jimi Quest Diagnostics has started antibody testing for $119. You don't need a doctor's prescription see questdirect.questdiagnostics.com. Let us know if you have the superpower! Stay safe!
  17. This was a truly random study: About 6 percent of Miami-Dade’s population — about 165,000 residents — have antibodies indicating a past infection by the novel coronavirus, dwarfing the state health department’s tally of about 10,600 cases, according to preliminary study results announced by University of Miami researchers Friday. https://www.miamiherald.com/news/coronavirus/article242260406.html
  18. It will be interesting to get antibody testing there. It depends so much on the circumstances. If you are in a subway, bus, mass gathering, etc. packed in with lots of people you see a really high infection rate. Then packing people at home with one person who is ill is very bad news. Hospitals, nursing homes, prisons - all very bad. But outside with moderate distance the chances of infecting each other is much lower. Age has a lot to do with it as well.
  19. Yes, and herd immunity varies by R0. We don't know - but this virus may have been in NYC much earlier than we thought spreading. With a lower R0 you can get herd immunity at 30% assuming you don't overshoot. With a high R0 it'll require over 90% again if you don't overshoot. Overshoot is where you actually pass beyond herd immunity because the spread is just so fast everyone get's contact on the first pass.
  20. No - monkey kidneys have no 5g exposure or vaccine participation and they get totally screwed by this virus. I will not claim that high band 5G (24-39GHz) has zero biological reliance. But that has nothing to do with this virus.
  21. Low population density like Sweden - although Sweden is taking off by keeping the lights on it is nothing like NYC would have been had NYC left the lights on. It has always been about population density and isolation.
  22. A lot of epidemiologists I know are pounding the table saying that can't be! I haven't seen the details of how they selected people to test yet and which test they used so I can't say what the bias may be. Regardless it is actual data for once. I think lot of these epidemiologists convinced themselves about that which they had no evidence and are now stuck with egg on their face. But we'll see. I am always evidence based. I want to see a wider samples. But I think that's very good news for the area around New York and makes sense to me. Although I wonder if flyover country will have much lower
