If schools are closed until Sept what grade will kids be in when they return?

I heard CA state say that they can't pretend that the lost time is OK and go on from there. How will students make up for what they missed? Ditsy DeVos has no answers, of course.

Why do twice as many men as women die from the virus?

I must admit, tRump's "golden redemption" on Monday

was short lived and we all saw it coming. We have seen how one day he will say or act like he is a normal, thinking and functioning human being, then within 48 hours he lies, does a complete 180 and it is back to the same old, same old. This week was just like all the rest since he wasn't elected by the majority of Americans. I'm surprised Van Jones didn't make a fool of himself again and proclaim, "He is finally acting like a president".

DU Poll: Should the whole country be locked down at once?

Will Gov Newsom have to close CA borders if other

states or the whole country doesn't shut down?

CA Gov Newsom just announced state wide stay at home order.

Earlier today he said he expects 56% of state population to get the virus within next 8 weeks. I had a feeling this was coming.

she doesn't believe in accepting airline bailouts. Is it possible she is gearing up for a role as VP?


Can Smart Thermometers Track the Spread of the Coronavirus?

"A company that makes internet-connected thermometers has followed the flu more closely than the C.D.C. can. Now the devices may be turning up cases of Covid-19."

"The thermometer data “acts as an early warning system for illness spreading,” said Inder Singh, the company’s founder. The C.D.C.’s system lags because it relies on weekly reports from hundreds of doctors’ offices and hospital emergency rooms about what symptoms they are seeing in patients."

"Just last Saturday, Kinsa’s data indicated an unusual rise in fevers in South Florida, even though it was not known to be a Covid-19 epicenter. Within days, testing showed that South Florida had indeed become an epicenter."


Go to this link for the map...

"The map shows two key data points: (1) the illness levels we’re currently observing, and (2) the degree to which those levels are higher than the typical levels we expect to see at this point in the flu season. (Details on how we calculate this are available in our technical approach document.) We believe this latter data point — which we’re calling “atypical illness”, may in some cases be connected to the COVID-19 pandemic."

This was just reported on the Rachel Maddow Show.
