  1. I am starting to have flashbacks of 2016 election, yikes! BERNIE SANDERS LEADS DONALD TRUMP BY WIDEST MARGIN OF ALL 2020 CANDIDATES: ELECTION POLL https://www.newsweek.com/bernie-sanders-trump-poll-election-2020-biden-bloomberg-1483423
  2. Another story for Philly fans to add to their illustrious list of misdeeds. Throwing snowballs and batteries at Santa check Throwing up on little kids check Punching a police horse check Climbing utility poles despite being covered with crisco check Jumping in to fight Tie Domi check Having judge and court at the Veterans stadium check Urinating in sinks check Mascot attacks little kid check
  3. Watching impeachment is like having colonoscopy, after few minutes you are asleep.
  4. Very few indeed especially in the U.S, Canada is more responsible with the gun laws. I like to start small, you can’t have more guns than teeth.
  5. No doubt, although as i get older my preferred destinations include Canada, Austria, italy, Australia, Switzerland, Scandinavia etc. Any place that has murder rate way higher than the U.S I stay clear off. Jamaica, Columbia, RSA, Mexico etc.
  6. Sorry to hear that my friend, corruption is rampant down there. Very good friend of mine just left for Cancun, been going down there for almost 30 years. Due to my job, I have worked with thousands of people from Mexico, hardest working people in my experience. But as long as narco cartel war rages on, I have no plans to visit.
  7. Mexico almost hit 35 000 homicides in 2019, life is very cheap down there. If Mexican lives are that cheap, you don’t want to know what happens to people from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras etc.

    NFL thread

    Rooting for the K.C to win, their fans deserve it. Plus is the 49ers win, I am sure we are going to see resurgence of life long S.F fans that live in B.C. Just like we had with Seattle and N.E.
  10. New Chinese virus 'will have infected hundreds' By James GallagherHealth and science correspondent 18 January 2020 Share this with Facebook Share this with Messenger Share this with Twitter Share this with Email Share Image copyrightGETTY IMAGES Image captionThere were six coronaviruses known to infect people before the latest discovery The number of people already infected by the mystery virus emerging in China is far greater than official figures suggest, scientists have told the BBC. There have been more than 60 confirmed cases of the new coronavirus, but UK experts estimate a figure nearer 1,700. Two people are known to have died from the respiratory illness, which appeared in Wuhan city in December. "I am substantially more concerned than I was a week ago," disease outbreak scientist Prof Neil Ferguson, said. The work was conducted by the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis at Imperial College London, which advises bodies including the UK government and the World Health Organization (WHO). 'Sars-family' virus claims second victim in China Mystery Chinese virus: How worried should we be? Singapore and Hong Kong have been screening air passengers from Wuhan, and US authorities announced similar measures starting on Friday at three major airports in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. How were the numbers calculated? The crucial clue to the scale of the problem lies in the cases being detected in other countries. While the outbreak is centred on the central Chinese city of Wuhan, there have been two cases in Thailand and one in Japan. "That caused me to worry," said Prof Ferguson. He added: "For Wuhan to have exported three cases to other countries would imply there would have to be many more cases than have been reported." It is impossible to get the precise number, but outbreak modelling, which is based on the virus, the local population and flight data, can give an idea. Wuhan International Airport serves a population of 19 million people, but only 3,400 a day travel internationally. The detailed calculations, which have been posted online ahead of publication in a scientific journal, came up with a figure of 1,700 cases.

Prof Ferguson said it was "too early to be alarmist" but he was "substantially more concerned" than a week ago. Chinese officials say there have been no cases of the virus spreading from one person to another. Instead they say the virus has crossed the species barrier and come from infected animals at a seafood and wildlife market in Wuhan. Prof Ferguson argues: "People should be considering the possibility of substantial human-to-human transmission more seriously than they have so far. "It would be unlikely in my mind, given what we know about coronaviruses, to have animal exposure, be the principal cause of such a number of human infections." Understanding how a novel virus is spreading is a crucial part of assessing its threat. The WHO's China office said the analysis was helpful and would help officials plan the response to the outbreak. "Much remains to be understood about the new coronavirus," it said. "Not enough is known to draw definitive conclusions about how it is transmitted, the clinical features of the disease, the extent to which it has spread, or its source, which remains unknown."

And officials in China and the World Health Organization have concluded the infection is a coronavirus. Coronaviruses are a broad family of viruses, but only six (the new one would make it seven) are known to infect people. At the mild end they cause the common cold, but severe acute respiratory syndrome (Sars) is a coronavirus that killed 774 of the 8,098 people infected in an outbreak that started in China in 2002. Analysis of the genetic code of the new virus shows it is more closely related to Sars than any other human coronavirus. Skip Twitter post by @EcoHealthNYC Report End of Twitter post by @EcoHealthNYC The virus has caused pneumonia in some patients and been fatal in two of them. What do other experts say? Dr Jeremy Farrar, director of the Wellcome medical research charity, said: "There is more to come from this epidemic. "Uncertainty and gaps remain, but it's clear that there is some level of person-to-person transmission. "We are starting to hear of more cases in China and other countries and it is likely, as this modelling shows, that there will be many more cases in a number of countries." Prof Jonathan Ball, from the University of Nottingham, said: "What's really important is until there has been widespread laboratory testing it is very difficult to put a real number on the cases out there. "But this is a figure we should take seriously until we know otherwise, 41 animal-to-human 'spillovers' is stretching it a bit and there probably is more underlying infection than has been detected so far."

  11. Most of these scumbags should have been taken out behind the shed. Cops should be ashamed of their actions as well.
