  1. good thing i have him on iggy but i'm sure kos will have a lot to say about yet another glaring failure by our local health authorities
  2. math your numbers do not add up where did the other people come from that you added in but did not count as walking towards you ? (adding in people you saw on tv attending the trump rally is unfair )
  3. US Civil War II - 6.37 milion (projected)
  4. earliest travel cases in bc were from people returning from egypt, iran and china and then there was that dental conference as well this history of transmissions is shown in the early graphs when travel was tracked community cases soon came on and most transmission was local
  5. i agree and unfortunately in the usa it is politicized at federal and state levels though cuomo did a good job in new york he was a bit slow on the uptake but then really hit the ground running - impressive except, he did exactly what trump did hogged the spotlight - and being a politician - made the whole endeavour way way too political he should have done it bc style.. have the doctor start, do most of the talking, and take the lead in question answering and the cuomo could have filled in gaps but no, not in the usa cuomo did his own trump impression in his approach and in the optics he presented that country is so incredibly polarized their demise will be incredibly swift unless this recent round of protests really does make huge systemic changes but i doubt it will .. as only part of the problem is political systemic part of it is economic - multinationals that are immune to this sort of protest unless the protesting turns into boycotting certain economic entities and that sort of pressure is only being hinted at presently trump is an autocrat wanna be and the wealthiest in the usa are oligarch wanna bes makes sense that russia is so involved in assisting reshaping the usa political/economic scenery
  6. does not really matter which city the nhl designates as a hub city they could have chosen nyc at the height of its outbreak the protocols that the nhl and its player adopt are the key factors the weaker the protocols, the higher the need for a "safer" city rumour has it that many pros (not just nhlers) do not want to return to play due to the risk involved so it seems to me the protocols will be fairly strict let's see what the protocols are that each league adopts and let's see how they actually educate their players about absolute adherence to the protocols people will be the weakest link to any framework put in place by any pro league
  7. don't worry their fearless leaders says it is very much like the common flu nothing to see here
  8. for sure and don't forget about the additional benefit of being able to fill your tub just by opening the bathroom window
  9. yep i knew that which is why i posted that info there are very few places in the entire world that are more or less safe from the sun and rupert is one of them sucks for companies that sell sun screen up there though ps... my superficial knowledge of a vast variety of topics could fill a large library with very thin books
  10. yeah except the snow during that event was liquified in rupert a good day in rupert is when the clouds part enough so the sun can shine in to bounce off the rain droplets ok i'm being extreme but i was forced to fly up there when the airlines were on strike and had to locate some smallish airline that flew a few of us up there in a snowstorm an unhappy memory sorry rupertbo and chon.. nothing personal against people who live up there i do hear it is a preferred location for those who suffer from sun related reactions
  11. well he is likely somewhere on the north shore and those north shore mountain ice caps cool his heat and mask his activity level we know rupert has no snow or ice just constant., persistent, eternal rain (which is not effective at heat masking) oh, and btw, have you evolved enough yet to have webbing between your toes and fingers?
  12. it's not strange at all the map is most likely sourced in the usa and they do not expend any energy at all to look at places outside the usa canada is worthy of 1 red dot per province, without any breakdown at all, as was done with the meaningful territories of the world (the usa) we are fortunate they noted our virus stats by 1 dot and that we were not totally ignored they have the virus issue well in hand down south, and can learn nothing from us not even from bc or the excellent medical leadership provided by dr. henry i think they chose to locate the red dot in bc near where you are located due to the heat generated from that area by your heavy posting on here
  13. and there is some wisdom in having kids return to school now for a month or so as it will allow the system to address and adjust to covid related transmission problems that might occur so that when more kids return in the fall the environment can be made even safer
  14. well i have a wee bit of trouble with what you are suggesting just because the more extreme risks have not yet been realized here does not really provide much comfort all we have to do is look at what happened in nyc to see what could easily happen elsewhere i don't need it to actually happen here to accept it easily could and the dtes concern is real, and it has been actively addressed from the start and so far effectively you seem to infer that since these risks have not yet been realized here there are less real? i really don't think that is a wise conclusion to be reaching there is way way too much evidence that we have to some degree been lucky and to another degree the the effective virus management through testing, tracking, tracing by our health authorities has been very effective these risks continue to be very real and we are walking a very small tightrope in successfully navigating this risk so far the protests could be the tipping point we'll see in a couple of weeks what the fall out might be
  15. so it worked? trump is correct then? are you recommending such treatment for others as well? tell us all more details about the insertion technique
