- why is the NHL looking at high infection areas for game sites? This whole thing is a TV related issue and it doesn’t matter if it’s being played in the Yukon. As long as there are ice rinks and hotels, there not be any need for anything else. Places like Toronto and even all of the US should be a NO!
 

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

 

Spoiler

in theory the league and players could agree

to implement china type health security measures

and weld closed the front doors of the hotels where the players stay

and transport them to practices via helicopter

Good luck with that when there are millions lining up for that same job you want. Better yet since businesses are exploiting workers so much why don't you start your own business and show the world a better way? 

Yep.  The “man” - or employers are the only reason anyone have a job in the first place.   We live in a country that anyone who’s willing to work hard enough they can build a nest egg and start a business.  It’s those types (the ones who are willing to put 60-80 hours a week in to establish themselves) that provide the 35 hour “full-time” work week for everyone else.   If your not fond of your job or employer spend the time to learn the skills to get a different one.   And there are 1000’s of good corporations to work for too.   The only one stopping anyone from this in Canada at least, is in the one in the  mirror looking right back at you.   Sure times are hard.   Not the first time - but I’m sure the first time for many.   Hopefully we as a species will come out of it stronger and more prepared for the next times.  
 

Grew up hearing about the Great Depression.   Snacks in our house consisted of dried old bread - mostly crusts hard a rocks that were eaten with worchestire sauce - because nothing was wasted and thats one of the things my grandparents ate during those times and passed on.   Couldn’t pass it on to my kids though - now it would probably constitute as “abusive”.  Then they had to go fight a war for five years.   Made them tough.   Even during this pandemic there is still a lot of excess as far as food goes, maybe that will change but for now at least it’s available and it’s affordable.   And at least the government is forking our billions to keep the wolves at bay for a lot of folks.   Don’t re-call any stories of that during the Great Depression ... times have changed.   Hopefully this will give some lazy folks a kick in the ass.   But I’m sure a lot of them will just use this as an excuse to blame someone or something else.   Natural selection also works in the job market...baby bombers and next up generation x can’t work forever, the next generations need to step up its their turn now and soon.

This contact tracing app is going to be useless if it's voluntary, especially given the hysteria around data privacy here. All of the data is anonymized.

 

All of these people paranoid about their privacy is completely asinine. How self-centered do you have to be to think the government is out to breach your personal data in light of a pandemic. The government doesn't care about your embarrassing internet history, my god.

 

Contact tracing has been proven to be a wide success in Korea and Hong Kong. The proof is in the number of cases in those countries.

I find there are a lot of people who forget what living under a democratic government entails. 

 

As a democracy we're entitled to several rights and freedoms, but we also agree to give up some by virtue of electing a government into power. 

 

Provinces have mostly been put under a "state of emergency." It's a phrase we throw around a lot these days, but I hope everyone understands that it gives the government extraordinary powers to use in order to stop the spread of COVID. We all seem to be doing fine with this reality and then suddenly there are people out there up in arms with a god damn app that's been proven to help stop the spread. 

 

The hypocrisy makes me livid.

So, you're afraid for your privacy should the government enact the same level of tracing as China, Taiwan and Hong Kong?

Trump rally at NOK was expected to draw upwards of 100,000 with the activities scheduled for the overflow crowd outside.

 

The arena is half full of maskless dolts. Outside it’s crickets. 

 

The blaming and excuses are already being crafted by team dotard. 

 

At least puts a bit of a damper on the spread of the virus.

US coronavirus cases rise 1.6% vs 1.2% seven-day average

Sun 21 Jun 2020 00:29:12 GMT

 

Highest rate of change since June 1

US virus cases rose 34,284 in the past day. It's the second day in a row above 30,000 after ranging from 19-28K in the prior week.
 
  • California 3893, or a 2.4% rise
  • Arizona 3109 or a 6.7% rise
  • Florida cases rose 4.5% compared to the seven-day average of 3.4%
  • Texas hospitalizations have hit a record for nine straight days and 4430 new cases
Highest rate of change since June 1
Texas
 
 
An equally hot spot right now is Brazil where cases jumped 34,666 in the past day and 1022 people died.
 
In Beijing there were another 22 confirmed cases on Saturday.
 
Meanwhile six members of Trump's staff tested positive for the virus ahead of his rally in Tulsa. Crowds were smaller than anticipated. This was purportedly as he took the stage:
Trump rally empty

for reference close to 22 million people live in Beijing.

$&!# hole countries being dragged through even more $&!# because of fanatical right wing populist leaders. Conservatives were quick to bash Cuomo but with Arizona having 1/3 the population of New York, they're very soon to pass them in number of cases. He clearly did the right things at the advice of the doctors.
