Quoted from Oaken:

My wife has gone from 36 hrs a week to 45 hrs with the expectation that in another week or so she will be bumped up to 50-60 hrs a week.
Also her pay will be cut in half at that point.
I am a house husband for the foreseeable future.

Wait....what? They are gonna double her work load and halve her pay? So work more for nearly the same amount of money? What kind of work does she do?

My sister in law had her pay cut by 20%, crazy.

Quoted from statsdoc:

To add to the article I linked, the main takeaway I have is that we may be undoing ourselves by wiping down groceries, where a low dosage might reside.
On a personal note, my wife and I went to the local Costco a couple weeks ago. Five days later (about 7 days ago), my wife suddenly developed a bad cough, was very tired, and couldn’t keep warm even with multiple covers and an electric blanket. I was extremely concerned. This lasted from late in the day and all through the night. She started feeling better the next day and within a few days had no more symptoms. She does not have seasonal allergies or really ever develop a cough. I know there is more than one possible way to explain this, but the oddity is that we have been completely isolated during that time and for the week prior. There was no other means by which she could have caught something to my knowledge. it is possible that she fought through a low dosage exposure.
Doc, I would be curious to get your take on all this.

It’s possible but we are still in cold and flu season in general. I’ve seen several patients in the last week that I would have bet money they had COVID based on their symptoms and they tested negative.

Only way to tell for sure would be an antibody test which we don’t currently have.

Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

Yep. Double work, halve the pay. So if she was hourly, it’s like she is making quarter her hourly wage. She is an internal medicine doctor.

Could beat the alternative.

I get the feeling that some of my team members would prefer to be laid off or furloughed. Some seem to think the US should just shut down, like they are entitled to some sort of break due to this crap. Ugh, it's so short sighted. I'd take a pay cut over a work stoppage. At least I *think* my company would make it right when things improve.

We got a memo from the CEO on the 26th saying we are having the biggest quarter we have had in many years. On the 30th, we got a memo that same CEO saying they are suspending 401k match. Never let a good crisis go without cutting some kind of benefit!

I'd rather be home than have to come to work with a bunch of plague rats and potentially catch something that can kill me. Call me selfish/lazy, but I need to look out for myself. The CEO's that get to work from home right now certainly are not looking out for me.

Made even more difficult by the apparent number of false negatives that are showing up on coronavirus cases.

I am not which is worse right now, false positives or false negatives.

I feel so lucky right now to work for a small company run by an intelligent and compassionate guy.

To be clear, my teams are working from home. And I know that's tough for some of them. I have offered to help any way I can - better home setups. But, for the most part, the show must go on. I know that's hard for some. It's hard for me. I'm putting in more hours now than I have in a long time....

#6812 9 months ago
Quoted from Jaybird815:

Did the Georgia governor really just say that he learned yesterday that people infected with Coronavirus can be asymptomatic? WTF?

No way that's real, it's been common knowledge since January that infected people can be asymptomatic.

#6813 9 months ago

You can watch the video in the story and that is exactly what he says.

I'm genuinely stunned.

#6817 9 months ago

I can't even begin to understand what I'm watching. How did that happen? How is it even possible that that just happened? Has this man been in a coma recently?

#6818 9 months ago
Quoted from PinJim:

I have to wonder, how many people are truly out of work? I'm working from home. People at my old company got furloughed for 2 weeks. At my current company, we are moving at 100 mph since we serve the parcel industry (FedEx, UPS, Amazon).
Are you out of work? With or without pay? Temporary or permanent?

My wife is a pilot and she's on reduced hours and will likely be demoted to a smaller aircraft then laid off. My hours have increased because I'm an online specialist in my department.

It's probably going to be like the 30s. About 30% of the population will be screwed. The rest will be fine.

Because....Georgia. Just like how the governor of Florida exempted religious gatherings from the stay at home order...so I guess 1000 person church services are a go. Some of the people participating may even get to meet god by Easter!

Also, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is located less that 30 minutes from the Georgia state house. He was also told to provide voting records from the 2016 election due to his close margin of victory and reported Russian interference. He destroyed the records instead.

This was already being done in Hong Kong.

I fear nobody will be fine for quite a long time after this is (temporarily?) over. Hope I am wrong.

Maryland 4/3 Covid Report.

Well, I'm being paid to stay home again today, but may be going back in next week.

The list of forbidden places to go has been growing, and I am now banned from traveling more than 100 miles from my home or I have a 14 day forced quarantine from work without pay.

I no longer see kids playing basketball or at the playground behind our house.

On the up side, my kids and I found 200 golf balls in the woods behind by the neighborhood golf course Wednesday/Thursday.

School curriculum is changing to online classes starting 15 April.

There are quite a few places near me near me offering "take and bake" food. Kids loved making and cooking their pizza yesterday.

Ran 8 miles this morning and saw very few cars.

I am now under the impression we will all be catching this bug, and sooner rather than later. I say the country opens back up for business for the 4th of July.

If anyone wants to raise cash without traveling and can ship backglasses, I'd be willing to pay for shipping for non perfect Paragon/DE Simpsons/Lost World/Space themed.

No Sees candy this Easter. They are shuttered.

Yesterday, I finally tasted a Fantasy omelet and broke out tools I haven't used since the early 2000s. Then we watched The Omega Man. Hoping today can top yesterday.

Hopefully it can for you mister but most of us are thinking of everyone else

Kentucky! I’d post a link to a .pdf, as there are many on the web, but not sure as to the safety of those links. But check out the following if you all have time. I had just reread this last month. It’s pretty entertaining:

Assuming having the virus gives immunity (which experts believe is true), herd immunity would likely mean around 50% to 75% of the population would get it and then the virus would have a hard time finding new hosts/victims.

https://news.sky.com/story/coronavirus-what-is-herd-immunity-and-how-will-it-help-prevent-spread-of-covid-19-11956941

Hopefully it is true that a very large percentage of infected are asymptomatic or have very mild symptoms.

This is disgusting. Not your post, the fact that they are going to have people gather in churches like that. People will catch it there. People will die. It really is that simple. I'm not an alarmist. Not everyone will die... but enough will. And then some of the people that care for those sick people will also catch it. And then some of them will also die. I assume at some point the pastors will be charged with manslaughter for each death. Because that is the correct charge when people die from your negligence, right? Or is there enough malice now to consider it murder?

Exactly. Politicians are professional liars. There's absofuckinglutely no way he hadn't overhear, read, or was just straight up told that information.

Our governor here in KY has admonished some specific churches by name in his various addresses. Including one he had family connections to.

He implored them with this (paraphrased) admonishment: "How are you going to feel come Christmas when this is hopefully behind us, but so much of your congregation isn't there because you implored them to show up while this virus was active?"

One take away from that chart is that the longer this goes on the more ridiculous China’s numbers look. It doesn’t help us moving forward, but one can only imagine how much lower the numbers would be throughout the rest of the world had they been honest, transparent, and supplied the rest of the world with accurate information as to what they were dealing with from the very beginning. Sure, every country most likely could have done things better, but the most egregious mistake was made by China and misled the entire world. Now is not the time, but China needs to be globally held accountable for their actions. Each individual country, including our own, will need to hold their respective governments accountable for any missteps as well. Once again, it doesn’t matter right now and moving forward in fighting this, unfortunately we are where we are, but God I wish China would have been truthful. We would be in a very different place right now as their negligence cost the world countless lives. This angers me to no extent...sorry for the rant...carry on...time to do some yardwork!

It’s straight up insanity, they traced 2500 cases to one religious festival in France.

Why is the US such a discombulated Covid mess right now? From that article I linked above about the trouble with church services, comes this telling quote:

"Some residents said Beshear had only urged churches to stop having services before the revival service, and didn’t issue an order requiring that until afterward."

Yep: that fuzzy distinction between an "urge" (or "strong dis/encouragement", etc etc) and an "order". Even the military has to clarify this distinction.

It's human nature to think things don't apply to you as a matter of personal convenience and interpretation.

Hindsight says the time to issue clear, direct orders passed a while back... but there's no excuse for not doing it now. We need a national policy on this, stat.

#6849 9 months ago

Watching the NY Governors press conference right now....discussing the allocation of ventilators in the state. This keeps coming to mind...

Yes that would be nice.

I'd also like a pony!

So we got any Floridians here? Have you tried to file for unemployment?

Apparently it's a huge disaster. The system down there was designed on purpose to make it harder to access UI to save businesses money, as well as reduce the number of people on UI so the numbers "look better" for the people running the state. Now, with the unprecedented demand, it's a "shit show."

Hope they can clear this up.
