    How the pandemic is reshaping universities and the economy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FM5HkpyXxsQ Under 20 minute interview with an NYU business professor from the US PBS show Amonpour and Co. US oriented but I suspect similar but different things happening in Europe and...

    While working for an aerospace company, I was told that, in France if I left my laptop in my room, it would be copied. There is a tale told inside of IBM of when someone in was visiting France and...

    any more credibility than I give to US government news outlets. Are you referring to Voice of America, one of the military news services (for the troops), or is there another one I'm not aware of?...

    Can we drop this? As long as you have the last work? Your conclusions/inferences don't fit the known facts....
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    They're either playing to win OR cooperating. Perhaps you left the word "not" out of your second sentence. When they cooperate it is with an end point in mind where they will be in charge and may or may not...

    but how does that change the risks of stroking out several years after being infected My question is how many people with mild or no symptoms have lost 5%-50% of their kidney, liver, spleen, heart, lung, or other organ functions....

    And now something that might be very useful. Tracking Covid-19 infection rates via sewage treatment plants. https://arstechnica.com/science/2020/05/pooping-for-public-health-coronavirus-in-sewage-could-warn-of-outbreaks/...

    Anyone need protection from the 5G menace? "The 5GBioShield makes it possible, thanks to a uniquely applied process of quantum nano-layer technology, to balance the imbalanced electric oscillations arising from all electric fog induced by all devices such as: laptops,...

  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Thatcher, today, would be seen as far too left-wing and collectivist -- not to mention international in outlook -- to fit in the Conservative party front bench today. Hell, she'd have difficulty getting past selection by a constituency party: she'd...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    But in terms of international cooperation, I'd note that the Chinese do not appear to have engaged any other nation in space cooperation, including their neighbors Russia, North Korea, and Japan. The Chinese seem to have a long memory...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    NYC has been using fist sized balls of dry ice (frozen CO2) for a while. Drop it into a rat hole where there is nothing people might be in below and they suffocate and are already buried. I suspect other...

    Cats. To me they are up there with deer in terms of we've altered the ecosystem by flooding it with a species that doesn't play fit well with others. Deer because we got rid of wolves. Cats because we like...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    They will make good pets if you can catch them before they've been abandoned for too long. I'm not convinced. Based on experience I think about 1/2 of the cats just don't want to be a "house" cat. And they...

    I'll likely not respond after this but Scarborough was in a different state at the time this all happened. Your doing just what you accuse Trump of doing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Scarborough#Conspiracy_theory https://www.nwfdailynews.com/news/20171208/from-archives-stories-from-2001-related-to-scarborough-aide-klausutis-death https://www.salon.com/2017/11/29/trumps-latest-bogus-conspiracy-theory-did-joe-scarborough-murder-his-aide/...

    Right now, the orange piece of shit is tweeting about some guy who lost his wife 15 or so years ago, claiming that she had been having an affair with Scarborough, the newscaster that turned on him a year or...

    Re periodic Cicada irruptions I've learned that oak trees (at least around here) have cycles. Every 5 to 10 years my huge oak in the yard goes nuts and drops huge amounts of acorns. Just to clean up the ones...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Poison is not a good idea. Catch & release is good for raccoons, opossums & squirrels and catch, neuter & release does seem to work for cats too feral for rescue & adoption. But many of those feral cats are...
  • Commented on Cough Cough
    Silly but serious question: Can rats eat cicadas? It is my understanding that rats can/will almost any form of protein. It's one reason they survive most anywhere. If anyone wants a new rabbit hole to go down there are lots...

    It seems like anyone carrying a large amount of cash is vulnerable. Not defending, just explaining. In the US for a while now anyone with over $10K (or a bit less see below) is considered to be up to no...

    And so how are rats dealing with the lock down in the UK? theguardian.com/world/2020/may/25/us-city-lockdowns-rat-aggression-lack-food-waste In the US it seems "Lord of the Flies" meets hungry rats. (Yes I know the real situation for LotF didn't work out that way.)...

    By contrast in NZ there was traditionally a small fee to see a doctor, which was originally brought in to weed out the hypochondriacs and bandaid brigades and make people value the service more, which meant you could readily get...

    Anyway, go cicadas! One of the world's great nitrogen cycle transfers will be screeching into the woods near you this summer! My wife and I were driving across Pennsylvania back around 87 and apparently a brood had emerged. We could...

    from anyone they come in contact with. Not true at all. As I said it IS a problem. But not in the manner protracted by that comment. There IS a process for how it operates. But still it sucks. I...

    (in the USA many police forces make significant money from taking valuable items, especially cash, from anyone they come in contact with. Ah, nope. Civil forfeiture is a big issue. And a big problem. But it does not operate the...

    NHS have made it even harder to sell off to the Americans in exchange for a trade agreement. This phrase, sell off the NHS to the Americans" gets tossed around a lot here. Would someone eliminate my guesses as to...
