  1. Fire Colome into the same galaxy as Luplow just hit that ball.......might as well send Rocco and Falvine with him.
  2. To be honest, we’re not going to eliminate that thought from the people who want to propagate it. Personally it’s time to move away from giving that notion any airtime, let alone brain power. It’s not the flu, there is plenty of data out there in many forms to safely make that statement. There is gathering data in many other areas as well imo. I think more is being learned and known about the virus daily, which I believe is useful and solid enough to help guide decision making. It strikes me that so many people are still highly focused on infection prevention for everyone at all costs, as o
  3. Little more freedom coming in my neck of the woods. I like the approach, although still a few too many vagaries and conflicting restrictions. It’s a start. https://www.gov.mb.ca/covid19/restoring/phase-one.html
  4. I find it unfortunate that there seems to be no room for people to put forward alternate, thoughtful ideas, without the price of a life argument being thrown at them. It’s a false equivalence and a lot of people with reasonable ideas are unfortunately being accused of it.
  5. Minnesota being considered as one of the venues for games with a possible NHL return in June or July.
  6. As Michael Osterholm indicates, we're going to have to focus on living with this virus, instead of focusing on dying from it. A big part of that is going to involve educating the public. Freedoms are not going to come to everybody equally, it just can't work that way. Some people will have to bear this longer than others. It's an ethical dilemma based on the principles of equality, but there are many other costs involved that need to be considered as well. I think this is something the United States will uniquely struggle with relative to most other nations. There is such a strong value
  7. Luck has played and continues to play a major role during this. How does one health worker in a hospital get infected and not others? Why weren't more people infected with this before social distancing and lockdown measures enforced? Perhaps there are answers but my guess is they are a long way off. Once restrictions are loosened the focus has to shift away from keeping everyone from getting infected to managing the rate of infection, particularly amongst those most at risk of serious complications.
  8. Yes, I'm suggesting we give hairdressers PPE...….give your head a shake and try to have a rational argument. A healthy 55 year old is in a high risk category? I think you need to check some data friend. As tragic as all the deaths of younger, healthier people are, they are in the vast minority. The narrative that the virus is an equal opportunist and nobody is safe from critical care is a false one and detrimental to a more nuanced approach to moving things forward. Once testing becomes more widespread the approach has to involve more demography to inform policy. it needs to focus heavily on t
  9. What if his hair stylist wants to go back to work, and like needs to? What if they feel they aren't in a very high risk category for getting critically ill from the virus? What if they took as many realistic precautions as possible to try and reduce possible transmission? At some point a certain level of personal risk is going to enter into the equation, rightly or wrongly it is going to happen. Once the R0 factor of the virus gets to an acceptable level, social distancing is going to decrease and it will be up to individuals to be responsible. If getting a haircut is too risky, don't get o

  11. https://www.pnas.org/content/early/2020/04/15/2004911117 This is what needs to happen
  12. Well they were from Michigan, so that lessens the head scratching.
  13. Measures simply need to be put in place to keep transmission to a manageable level for hospitals. Testing needs to be widespread and efficient enough to be able to contain a potential outbreak. People in high risk categories will need to live under stricter guidelines and have safeguards put in place to protect them from both a medical standpoint and a financial standpoint. Lower risk segments of society need to be able to help move things forward. The notion that transmission needs to be prevented between absolutely everyone is a false one, nor is it remotely possible. Part of finding more
  14. Every situation isn’t the same, to draw any parallels you would have to examine a number of variables.
