Some because I've spent some time in the UK, and some because we watch BBC and the ads are always there.

What I found funny was how quickly I read it in the Shipping Forecast voice and speech pattern  ;D

They cut the Megabus service that was still running back and forth from here to NYC.

Now if they could give Philly back to New Jersey and cut that line as well.

Logging in to work it seems
we have shut the school runs  :confused: schools have been closed for two weeks
 gone from normal service to weekend service all week. Seems as ridership has fallen 90% DUHHH
Passengers are only boarded and disembarked from the rear doors coupled with free fare
But operators are not allowed to wear facemasks ??? gives the wrong message  :bash: :nuts: seriously WTF  theses brave folks should be given bonus pay and full protective gear.

OH well crazy town continues, week after next I have a hydraulic brake class scheduled to teach and 4 confirmed attendees so far  :o

Seems that the SOP on how to decontaminate a bus I wrote during the swine flu som years back has gone into effect big time

Italian Researchers Identify New SARS-CoV-2 Gene Variants
Quote
The findings, ..., increase the likelihood that future coronavirus vaccines can have a higher rate of effectiveness and could help the global scientific community's effort to better understand the epidemiology and spread of COVID-19.

The two independent research teams ... sequenced multiple samples and identified the presence of gene variants when compared against the original Wuhan coronavirus reference genome. Viruses that mutate rapidly over short periods of time make it challenging to develop effective vaccines that protect people against infection. The low number of variants discovered in the Italian samples two months after the virus was first sequenced in China suggests that SARS-CoV-2, which has infected more than an estimated 64,000 people in Italy and 380,000 globally, is a relatively slow-mutating pathogen.

"Had we investigated other viruses we might have expected up to dozens of new mutations after so many infectious cycles in patients. Our initial data show that this is a very stable RNA virus, with only five novel variants. A virus with a stable genome is good news for vaccine development because it indicates that the effectiveness of vaccines could be more consistent, possibly over many years," Professor Stefano Menzo, head of Virology at Ancona University Hospital, said.

LA County finally went legal, filing charges against 4 businesses that wouldn't close -- 2 smoke shops, a shoe store, and a discount electronics store.  Next door here in Orange County, we haven't started that yet.

And I read where they fined a paddle-boarder in Malibu. 

I understand the paddle-boarder was practicing social distancing; unless circumstances arose that required a First Responder.  Can't people think beyond their own self-interest and sacrifice a small bit of personal liberty for the greater well-being of others?

I know, makes me sound like a communist.

I work right by the AT. Every day I see a bunch of cars in the parking lot. They put up road closed signs and they park by the signs.  I am torn on the hiking thing. Seems like a good sanity check and it wouldn't be hard to step off the trail to let someone pass...  I get the hardliners saying stay home but I also get a walk in the woods if done properly. Glad I have property.

Actually, the lifeguards spent half an hour trying to get that guy out of the water and he ignored them. If he'd listened to them at any point in there, there wouldn't have been a ticket. They really are trying to do this without going all law enforcement. You get a ticket when your behavior crosses over into doucheland.

Years ago we were at a nightspot when Douche and his party walked. He tried to pick up one of the girls (a musician) that was in our group. He told her he"could take her career places". She told him "just don't take me for a ride".  Douche and party left immediately.

The coast guard was searching for two Kennedys lost in the chesapeake while canoeing.



The sad and unfortunate full story on that one.  They were doing the right thing staying at home.  The mom and kid were in the backyard kicking a ball around.  When the ball went in the water, they had the not-so-bright idea to throw the canoe in the water to go retrieve the ball.   

I had survey crews that were supposed to be working in Chesapeake Bay last week and they were shut down by strong winds and choppy water, so I have no freaking what the hell she was thinking.   :facepalm:

We were there when he took Mary Jo swimming.

For years after that tourists would see us playing and ask how to get to "the bridge". Even at age 10 I knew enough to give them perfect directions.

To the dump.


Douche would anchor his boat like right of our beach, yes, OUR beach four the fourth of July and along with him came his douche friends all being douchey.

We used to throw cherry bombs at his boat from our little motor dingies.

Perhaps it's just my impression, but it seems as if the extended Kennedy family has a much higher percentage of deaths from "misadventure" than most. Both my and my wife's extended families have their share of broken bones and crashes, etc., but we have to go back a few generations to find a death by accident as opposed to old age or medical issues.  For example, I have a cousin who broke a leg while skiing, but a Kennedy relative died while skiing.  I am curious whether this observation would be backed by actual numbers if accidental deaths were tracked by family?

Luckily she did so I gave her my list. There’s no point in us both going really

 :lol: Nice!

I can’t believe the government are relying on models to forecast the pandemic, they should ask scientists instead, they’re not as pretty but they know a lot more

And to think  "socialised medicine" was voted down until it became overpriced and useless and then got rid of what was left. Poor old USA is not well placed to cope with this. I feel for you.

OH good God, what crazy talk is that, we in the States have the greatest healthcare in the world! If anyone wants to access it all they need to do is buy a policy from a insurance company. Many policies are available from a vast pool of providers all there for the pickins. "Socialized medicine" is the devils work! I have no intention of giving my hard earned money to assist some rich folks who have never done anything for me, just so they can have healthcare at the same rate I pay. No No No We have private insurance companies that are set up to provide what the common man needs at a price that they can afford. They can set the prices and dictate treatments better than any small town doctor could ever dream of. Trust in the system, it's there to help you and show a profit to the shareholders.

You are treading on thin ice there, Bro, because you fail to recognize the benefits of our system.

One of the clients I work for makes a drug product that is sold internationally.  All of the product is made exactly the same way at the same facility here in the USA.  The obvious advantages of domestic production - besides providing jobs and income for people like me - allows this product to to be sold at a high markup.   That pays for lots of television commercials, large bonuses for pharmacy benefit managers, dividends for insurance company shareholders (of which I am one), and not to be overlooked, a very nice motorcycle for me. !

Interesting post circulating on social media.  Important to keep in mind this data is not from a scientific study.  The rates of testing are not the same; the criteria for getting tested are not the same; the sampling methodology is not the same, etc.  I'd just as soon believe the data coming out of China or Swampy Bottom.  Not only that, but it was posted on the internet, so it can't possible be true.

Still interesting to contemplate.  Linky here

So … the business news is reporting that corporations will be releasing earnings reports soon, and predicting that the stock market will likely dive again.  Now, I thought it obvious that a good many businesses would experience lousy sales back when the closure orders were put in place weeks ago, and therefore smart money people had already priced lousy first quarter earnings into the market so the market should already be there.  My question is: who among financial professionals didn't think that corporate earnings were going to drop through the floor, and why are these people still working in finance?  It's like a Northerner being surprised by winter.

Should this have been a rant?   ;)

And Captain Obvious just told me that most of the businesses that were first hit in the Great Recession will be hit hard now.  That is, any product that people can put off buying will be put off, so expensive adult toys such as motorcycles, campers, boats, will be sitting on the lots.  If you still have a job, it could be a good time to buy both investments and other stuff soon.
