Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

1000 piece ones work best for our dining room table. Springbok and White Mountain puzzles have become our favorites. I donated about a dozen various ones last summer to our local senior center. They have a couple of tables with puzzles being continuously worked on. Kind of interesting to see someone sit and work on one for an hour, then leave. Someone else comes along and works on it for a few minutes, then leaves. This might go on for days.
My wife used to tease me for sitting for hours on end working on one. She no longer teases me.[quoted image][quoted image]

Those logo puzzles tend to be some of the easier ones because the colors are so distinct in each area. I myself prefer art scenes or photographs of scenery.

"The Starry Night" is unopened I see. You have some work to do when you are not actually working.

Yeah, I got that one for Christmas. We usually work them during vacation in a beach house. We had a house rented in the Outer Banks this week, but I'm working from home instead.

#8303 9 months ago

I thought we were peaking. I read where we had 3 days in a row is less deaths. To me, it look like the trend is still intact. What am I not seeing?

Wow, you can't catch a break on those vacations. Isn't this the 2nd time in a couple years you had to miss out on a scheduled Outer Banks vacation?
I really feel bad for you having to change plans like that.
It is good to hear that you are still working.

[quoted image]

From what I can see the new case rate has been steady around 27-30000 over the past three days. That is down from a spike to 37000 several days ago but that may have been an anomaly. Deaths are steady around 1000 per day.

So, it’s some good news that new case rates aren’t accelerating anymore but we aren’t on a downturn yet.

The “peak” people talk about is probably the total case numbers which won’t peak until daily recoveries exceed new cases. That won’t be for a while.

I prefer to look at new cases and watch for new cases to start to decline, that’s probably the earliest indicator that we might be coming through this.

The unfortunate news is that even once you reach the peak there are still a lot of new cases and deaths that will happen as the epidemic resolves.

Quoted from Pinball_Gizzard:

Is that metric the number of new cases as a percentage of administered tests? It seems we're still in the phase of ramping up testing... but even still, not enough tests are being done because test availability and lab capacity is not in sync with presumed need. In which case, it could be a long while indeed.

But on a related note, what would you consider the threshold for proper number of tests? And if testing ramped up to "clear the young and/or typically unafflicted to send them back to work and restart the economy", could the lower percentage of cases overall be construed as a false sense of security since other demographics are still at risk?

I was debating the covid19.healthdata.org data with one of the secondary analytics guys I worked with previously. He seems to think we won’t see a peak as much as a long plateau where one state slows but another becomes a hot spot and takes its place. Makes for a much longer timeline for this and puts us at risk of having to play whack a mole if states let up on shelter in place too early.

Might change your perspective

Plenty of unintelligent people, bottom line, they heard that something would save them. It didn’t and should’ve never been promoted as such. Dangerous.

NBC News spoke to the wife, who said they learned of chloroquine's connection to coronavirus during a President Donald Trump news conference, which "was on a lot actually." They took it because they "were afraid of getting sick," she said.

I don’t know that there’s a specific number of test needed. Whatever is enough to test the symptomatic patients in a timely fashion. The US is too big to do universal testing in my opinion and even if you had universal testing the false negative rate of the tests would make “clearing” people to return to work problematic.

Assume, just assume, that the worst of this is over. How will you change your life? What will you do different?

Are you going start flying again?

What about a cruise ship?

Will you be buying a new $1,000.00 iPhone?

Will you be buying a new car?

Are you going to have a job to go back to?

Are you just going to keep hunkering down and hoard all of your money, or what money you have left?

In short, what will you be doing to help propel the economy back to health?

heh, until I got to your last sentence I thought this was more a philosophical question, like how has this experience changed how you think about the world, what you do, and your relationships to the people within it? How has it made you rethink the value of your possessions, over your relationships?

I just had another life changing moment observation. It's a beautiful sunny day in Colorado and I was going to take my mountain bicycle out for some trail rides. I've decided it's best to avoid anything extreme out of fear of crashing and landing in the hospital. On the other hand I can get distracted riding around our college town by sunbathing beauties with the same result.

My personal estimate at this time is that I will remain at least one step behind what is being officially recommended by the NY Gov, just like I was at least one step ahead of them when they started closing things down.

If they say restaurants are open, I won’t go. Once they say movie theaters are open, I may start going to restaurants. Once they say
nBA games are ok again, I may start gong to movies, etc.

Whatever the plan, they had better be measured. I will be more likely to go to a restaurant again if they are only allowed to operate at 50 percent capacity. Same with movies etc.

Flights? Really not sure. It’ll be a case by case basis. It’s not really the flights I dread it’s the airports. I’ll have to wait and see how things are managed, and whether or not I really have somewhere to go. I’ll probably be splurging on first / business class as well for a while.

I still have my job so my financial decisions haven’t been altered too much. Pinball-wise, yes I will not be looking to spend big money on things like that, especially since I expect my pinball sales to be much slower for a while.

Quoted from Luckydogg420:

From my previous link
Why lie? (a brief history)
Sometime in the 1960s the Networks realized that over 60% of their profits came from news. Growing up, I had believed that "News" and "Entertainment" were separate things. The truth, it seems has been that "news" is a form of entertainment. It is also a 
tool used to control what facts and information people have access to. More importantly, it is a profit generating mechanism for media moguls like Rupert Murdoc. 
In the 70s and 80s competition between news networks became more intense and eventually lead to sensationalism and spin to reach more of an audience and sway opinions in a general direction. Instead of just reporting facts, it was found that by 
emotionally charging an argument, they could increase viewership.
Types of Lies
There are a number of ways in which media lies to you. Sometimes directly, other times indirectly.
Truth by Repitition - This kind of lie is when something is repeated enough times, particularly a headline, so that the actual truth becomes irrelevant. This can be attributed to a human flaw known as "confirmation bias". If a "fact" is confirmed enough times by enough sources it becomes subjectively true. In this case, one cannot blame the media directly, except for their own eagerness to "get the story out". Remember, they are in the business of making money. After you read the first story, subsequent stories will likely only get a "headline" view
Lie by Deflection - This is when media sources deliberately report on information that is not relevant or attempt to distract from factual information by creating an emotional spin on it. This happens when the people in charge want to push their opinion on their readers and form an "Us against them" with their readers. Watch out for the next lie, because it often is found in the same agency, and next to the deflection.
Lie by Omission - This is when important and relevant facts are deliberately removed from an article to focus on the agenda the reporting agency has in mind. Support this candidate, hate this person, or even buy this product, amongst other things, are all agendas networks and news have pushed.
Focus on Opinion - is a lie where the media repeats its news and offers no dissenting views, particularly when it comes to reporting on an opinion piece. The objective here is to isolate people whose ideas differ from the reporting agency and magnify the representation of ideas they want to go through. Liberal news talks with liberal supporters to show how many people support liberal ideas. As does conservative news. This lie is often followed up with "Truth by Repetition". Together, they create an environment that the reader may be in a minority opinion group, and thus more willing to "go with the flow" of the majority.
Distortion of Fact - is when the media reports heavily on facts as though they are far more important than they actually are.
Misrepresentation of Facts - this is classic "taking out of context" to purposefully or inadvertently change the meaning of factual
Sensationalism - is when the news reported has wording meant to excite its reader. 
Spin - is when the "direction" of the news is turned towards something else. An example might be that, instead of focusing on a particular fault of their own, a company may redirect attention to the shortcomings of a competitor.
Truth and Fiction - The best lies are told with a grain of truth. This is when news presents some factual information with added information that is not true. Usually it serves the purpose of guiding the viewer into having a particular opinion about the subject. The factual information lends credibility to the fictional information. In the end, people tend to forget information and remember more of a feeling about something. Therefore, once this information is proven false, most people are still left with the original impression the article gave them, thereby distorting their opinion of the subject unfairly.
Lies through "Trolling" and Commentary - Modern media has had the onslaught of people able to express their opinions and views on reported information. If you think these are all honest individuals you are mistaken. If you think they're just people with a sick sense of humor, you are also wrong. Here are some reference articles that talk about it:
https://www.cracked.com/blog/6-things-you-learn-getting-paid-to-troll-peopleonline/
http://politicalomnivore.blogspot.com/2012/02/how-do-i-get-paid-to-be-on-linetroll.html
I would like to note at the end of the second link's article, the author personally does not feel paid trolling is an extensive business. As I'm inclined to agree, I would still like to point out that in some cases I also believe there have been incidents. Here is a link to an article on Snopes.com (link below) that asserts protestors received money, but were not "paid".
https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/paid-protesters-kavanaugh-hearings/
While this kind of thing may be rare, it still occurs. Furthermore, as the posters are not really held accountable for expressing their opinions or "facts", it is often dismissed. Regardless, it does have an impact on a reader's interpretation of an article. 
The main point here is that there are many ways in which the media either deliberately or inadvertently lies to
What is the Problem exactly?
Much of the problem with all this lies in a relaxing of Ethics in Journalism by governing bodies. After all, if journalism is a category of entertainment, there is no need to legislate or control what is actually said. As media moguls are in private business to turn profit, they are free to report on whatever they wish and in the manner they see will turn that profit. Ethics in Journalism ceases to exist because it's just another private business. Asking the government to handle journalism isn't a solution either as thegovernment is seen as having its own agenda to push. There needs to be a clear distinction between news and entertainment and the articles presented as news should aptly reflect the same ethical standards of teachers and reference materials (such as old school encyclopedias). The articles that are presented for entertainment need to be clearly labeled as such and recognized as an unreliable source of information. Facts need to be presented without bias, without emotional language, and without spin or other forms of misdirection.
Here is a list from the Ethical Journalism Network (EJN) on what ethical journalism is:
1) Truth and Accuracy
2) Independence
3) Fairness and Impartiality
4) Humanity
5) Accountability
You can read the full article here: 
https://ethicaljournalismnetwork.org/who-we-are/5-principles-of-journali
What Can I Do About It?
As modern journalism seems to further lack standards, let alone ethics it becomes important that readers in general take up some fact-checking on their own. Here are some strategies to confirm factual information from fictional accounts.
No.1
Read articles from conflicting sources. That is, find any two articles on a topic from two sources whose motivation is opposed. Perhaps an article from Fox and CNN about the same event. The truth will be on the shared information they agree on. Everything else is garbage meant to cater to the reader's sense of right or wrong. The more articles you read on a particular story, from differing sources, the more you'll be able to find the "common thread" connection. Those are likely the facts. It's been argued recently about where COVID-19 started. However, what every source agrees on is that the first known outbreak started in Wuhan China. No one disagrees about that. As you explore this, you will find, little by little, what is actually known and what is speculation. 
No.2
Look for articles that post their references and sources. Check on those sources. Most writers know you aren't likely to read twenty articles to fact check them or their interpretation of an article they read. Yet that is exactly what you need to do. Why is this source credible? How does the author make that particular statement? Why does the author say this? 
No.3
Shared opinions doesn't equal a fact. Realize the difference between subjective reality and objective reality. Sharing a subjective reality can make you feel connected but it won't do anything to help you find the truth. Unfortunately, too many people enjoy living in a bubble reality where everyone agrees with them and they don't have to support their statements. Too many people don't like to have their beliefs challenged and go into cognitive dissonance when they are presented with facts that don't match their reality. Don't be among them. Keep an open mind.
No.4
Learn more about critical thinking. Openly challenge ideas and information until you can prove it to yourself. Know what it will take to prove something to you. Set your own standard, but do so earnestly. If information presented qualifies your pre-set condition 
of proof, then accept you were wrong. Neil deGrasse Tyson tells a story in his MasterClass (available on the website: Masterclass.com) about a man that wanted proof of the moon landing. Neil asked him what he would need to prove the moon landing. The man said he would need a photograph. When Mr. Tyson presented the evidence, it was still not enough. The point of this is, there is no way to prove something to someone that wants to believe otherwise. Incidentally, I highly recommend Mr. Tyson's "Scientific Teaching" masterclass.
No.5
Eye-witness testimony is worthless unless it's your own or been documented via video where you can also see and evaluate what happened.Understand however, even videos can be subject to the above "Lies" and misrepresentation.
No.6
Ask yourself, why is this news and what is the article's agenda? Are they honestly trying to share information with me or is it geared towards a particular opinion? How many adjectives are used in this article and for what purpose? Yes, adjectives indicate subjective truth, and in the case of factual information, irrelevant: does it matter what race or color the man who robbed the bank was? However, it might make a difference when reporting that a suspect is wanted for questioning and in giving a description so as to track them down.
About the Author:
I am not a reporter. I am not a journalist. I am a freelance writer. I write under the pen-name Victor. I do not have a "rosey-view" of the world as has been suggested by some commentators, but I do believe in the better nature and logic of mankind. People do what they do for a purpose, usually to meet some need they have that is lacking otherwise. Before you judge someone, consider where they have been and what they have learned in their lives. Conflict is resolved by understanding, not accusing or judging. Likewise, I am not perfect. I'm just another person wandering this road and trying to make sense of it.

TL/DR: Turn off the TV and read quality newspapers with quality investigative professionals, photo journalists, editorial boards and fact checkers.

If it is in fact true that you are immune once the virus has run its course on you; then couldn't the survivors/immune return to work covering as many essential jobs as possible?

I get to read about your cooking, your puzzles, your booze, baseball, etc.

Quoted from cottonm4:

OK. So I assume you are flying for business.
What do you think about all of this tele-computing stuff going on as a substitute for pressing flesh. ? Is a virtual handshake going to replace actual face-to-face? Any chance at all? We all know that the airlines needs the mothers' milk the business traveler provides by booking at the last minute.
Does this tele-commuting have a snowball's chance of replacing an across country flight?
