Would you consider zero sugar cola ?

Avoid the chemicals! Better to eliminate sugar drinks.

Hi,

>Would you consider zero sugar cola ?

No, don't like that stuff at all. I'm also not sure it is actually better for you.

Sanuk!

Strange that no CCP leaders have been affected, even they are much closer to it than any foreign leaders and celebs.

That would be considered a State secret. Just like there are no numbers for the USA military infected with the virus.

Excellent results. Meds are inexpensive and available NOW!!!

As Americans die needlessly, and in many cases perhaps even purposely, the war against COVID-19 is overshadowed by the despicable actions of overreaching bureaucarts and model worshipping medocrats as it has become obvious that they value personal profit and party power over the well-being of the people. Dr. Corsi interviews Andrew Schlafly, J.D., and Dr. Karladine Graves as they expose the wrongdoing of the tyrants who seek to control US. In the interview, the nepharious nature of the vehement leftist response to the use of a proven, safe, and cheap medication, hydroxychloroquine, to prevent illness and save lives has been crystal clear. It is time to take the country back, to focus on the health of American citizens, and to Make America Great Again...Again.

India has used hydroxychloroquine for its first responders. This is tens of thousands first responders! Hmmmm...and the USA is blocking this medication?

11 April

India has recorded 7,529 active cases, 242 deaths, 653 cured cases, according to the latest update released by the Union Ministry for Health and Family Welfare on Saturday evening.

You mean secret like the USS Theodore Roosevelt? Or secret like Boris Johnson caught the bug?  Or only secret as in the CCP never admits to anything?

An interesting outlook:

Coronavirus: The good that can come out of an upside-down world

Our world has changed immensely in the last few weeks but amid the upheaval and distress, there are reasons to believe we can emerge from the crisis with some human qualities enhanced, writes Matthew Syed.

A few years ago, Michael Michalko, a former US army officer, came up with a fascinating idea to sharpen creativity. He called it "assumption reversal". You take the core notions in any context, subject, discipline and then, well, turn them on their head.

So, suppose you are thinking of starting a restaurant (obviously not possible right now!). The first assumption might be: "restaurants have menus". The reversal would be: "restaurants have no menus". This provokes the idea of a chef informing each customer what he bought that day at market, allowing them to select a customised dish. The point is not that this will turn out to be a workable scheme, but that by disrupting conventional thought patterns, it might lead to new associations and ideas.

Or, to take a different example, suppose you are considering a new taxi company. The first assumption might be: "taxi companies own cars". The reversal would be: "taxi companies own no cars". Twenty years ago, that might have sounded crazy. Today, the largest taxi company that has ever existed doesn't own cars: Uber. Now we are living through a disruption (you might even call it a reversal) of unprecedented scale.

Which is why I suppose a good education is so precious.  There is no need to invent another term, or write a best seller that preys on people's ignorance - it is called thinking.  I always chuckle at the American term 'think tank', an explicit acknowledgement that most of the time they are NOT doing that. 

And perhaps a better example for Uber would be, "How can we help people with little to no opportunity, given all the headway we've made via the slow erosion of worker's rights since WWII".  The reversal would be, "let's make them mortgage their only tangible asset by getting them to hire it out and taking all the risk".

Besides I wouldn't call losing $20 billion a year that smart a business idea.

Has anyone else noticed a lot of the, "Things will never be the same again", stories that are doing the rounds in the media.  What an incredibly naive and ignorant point of view!  We've always been on the brink of a thousand extinctions.  And no, we don't want things to be the same again.  Those halcyon days - of what?  yesterday, where you could frolic in free air, trample over the homeless, and charge exorbitant rents for a cubicle - ahhh, those good ole days.  

It is really horrible this whole pandemic, but if there is one silver lining in this is watching the rent-seeking class wrenching their hands in despair.  Suck it up!

Crap. We are not looking at a failure of the system (except in usa) but at something like an earthquake. it might take a year and Africa probably finally failing completely but the basic structures are intact due to giant funding. The good thing is that it shows that the populist heroes have nothing to offer .
