    I’ve been following a thread about a pond at a closed/abandoned golf course. Even though the course was abandoned several years ago, only recently has the water to the pond been turned off. The water has been shut off and the pond is home to hundreds of turtles and fish. Hundreds! Crazy animal activists brainstorming ways to rescue the animals and/or transplant them (illegally, I’m almost 100% certain) to a nearby state park. High comedy.

    Some HOA near us has a clause in their bylaws that prohibits fireworks. We live in the unincorporated part of Houston, so fireworks are legal (and I'm talking about the really big ones that shoot up high and blow up three different times being legal). I guess the HOA decided to not enforce that specific bylaw and some of the people are freaking out. High comedy.

    But the best discussions were about masks...however it seems most people are now realizing that compliance is the best thing now so those discussion are more tame this weekend.

    Spoke to some associates that work in the DD world and there have not been any reports of deaths in this population and the Developmental Centers where many reside here.

    This is good news in comparison to what we have seen happen in the nursing homes. This was a major concern as they centers are essentially the same as a nursing home for people with developmental disabilities.

    It also raises questions on why they have been safe and not as infected as other congregate settings.

    So apparently Spain isn't happy giving up its title as originator of the latest large pandemic and are trying to take credit for it.

    South Korea Caught in Endless Coronavirus Whack-a-Mole

    South Korea long ago flattened its Covid-19 curve. But the staying power of the virus in the country, which has widespread testing and aggressive contact tracing, shows the difficulties with fully tamping down new infections, as governments remove public-health guardrails that had lowered the contagion risks.

    “It’s like a whack-a-mole that won’t end until the vaccine comes out,” said Alex Greninger, an assistant director of the University of Washington’s virology division in Seattle.

    The vulnerabilities of post-lockdown life have emerged elsewhere, too. China, where the virus first emerged, recently locked down large sections of Beijing in response to a new outbreak there. Germany and Portugal have also recently seen a rebound of new infections in their capital cities.

    “Reopening does not mean waving a victory flag and going back to normal,” said Josip Car, a population health expert at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, who has done work with the World Health Organization. “A one-off lockdown may not be enough to stem the Covid-19 pandemic.”

    Important safety tip... Don't unplug your relative's ventilator to plug in the A/C!

    The unidentified patient, a 40-year-old man at Maharao Bhimsingh Hospital in Kota in northern India, was admitted into an ICU unit on June 13 as doctors believed he had contracted the bug, the Indian Express reports.

    Two days later, the man was transferred to an isolation ward as a safety precaution since another ICU patient had tested positive for coronavirus, the newspaper reports. The man’s relatives then took an air conditioner to the hospital – as daytime temps reportedly topped out at 106 degrees — and allegedly unplugged the ventilator after not finding an open socket to cool down the room, according to the report.

    Hospital staffers had deactivated air conditioners in the unit in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19, Vice News reports.

    Maybe he's referring to antibody testing, which has been a fiasco. But they're not using antibody tests for COVID detection.

    He's really dumb.

    Great, as if it wasn't contagious enough.

    This coronavirus mutation has taken over the world. Scientists are trying to understand why.

    “G” hasn’t just dominated the outbreak in Chicago — it has taken over the world. Now scientists are racing to figure out what it means.

    At least four laboratory experiments suggest that the mutation makes the virus more infectious, although none of that work has been peer-reviewed. Another unpublished study led by scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory asserts that patients with the G variant actually have more virus in their bodies, making them more likely to spread it to others.

    The mutation doesn’t appear to make people sicker, but a growing number of scientists worry that it has made the virus more contagious.

    Ken Jennings wrote a book called Planet Funny, so he might be a comedian.

    Went to Home Depot in Riverton, UT this afternoon for a "curbside pickup". It took about 15 minutes for the order to come out. Masks are required at all retail establishments in Salt Lake County so I observed the people going in and out while waiting for the order to come. My unscientific observation was that 85% of people were masked up. A few people walking out of the store already had their mask off and in their hands but I only saw a small number folks that displayed zero evidence of a mask.

    I flew last week, and I felt sick upon my return. Got tested today, and it came back negative, which is a relief.

    My elderly parents (including my stepdad who smokes) had dinner three times last week with neighbors who tested positive with symptoms. Now, I'll start to panic a bit.
