      Damn, this one hit me hard, I was born and raised in Miami and Don Shula was an institution. My old man loved himself some Dolphins and Don Shula. I remember my dad would take my brother and I to the practices because they were free, we couldn’t afford the tickets but we didn’t care because it was the Dolphins. Sleep well Coach Shula….

    How do you post a photo on here? Sometimes a photo says it all.

    • May 4, 2020 at 11:44 am

      You have to use a third party service, like twitter or Instagram or a photo hosting website. You can’t directly post photos here.

    Funny happening the other day when I opened my small community mailbox. There was a package in it. I had to stop and think what it could be. When I opened the package the joke was on me. I had been scammed, but it was worth it for the laugh. 😂

    I am currently shopping at my regular grocery store online where I go pick the order up at the appointed time and they bring the groceries out and put them in my car. 🚙 The four times since Stay n Place that I have used the service they had no toilet paper. A friend looked in five different local grocery stores also with none available. So I turned to Amazon and found six rolls of tp on back order of a month and a half. It was through a private person working through Amazon. I ordered it.

    You guessed it! Upon opening the small package it was six rolls of miniaturized toilet paper. I placed one roll of regular toilet paper on top of them as that showed the difference words do not equate. One roll of regular tp is taller than the others and may be equal to four rolls of the miniature rolls as it covered all but two rolls.

    My question is in this time of shortages when there was a need for the regular product why would someone go to all the bother to make a product that would not have repeat business? Could it be opportunity, greed, and larger profit margins?

    “TEST THERE.”
    Maddow reporting that possibly 80% of the deaths in Minnesota are in nursing homes: “Test and ye shall find”.
    Then there are the prisons: Trousdale Turner Correctional Center TN has the 3rd largest prison COVID-19 outbreak = 1349 of 2700 people tested positive. Imagine if and when every prison is finally tested?
    We must test in order to find who is infected, whether symptomatic or not, and act to prevent spread of the virus. The Nebraska governor claimed the surrounding metro area Sioux City Iowa was not getting the spike in coronavirus from the meat plant in Dakota City. Then finally, testing turned up 669 positives at that meat plant.
    Maddow: “Not looking is not a safe way to hide this stuff.”

    • May 4, 2020 at 1:21 pm

      Maddow explains how the Epidemic Intelligence Service at the CDC:
      Sends “world class specialized disease detectives”, small teams of intrepid and great scientists to investigate root causes. The mo is “You invite in the CDC, they send their elite disease detectives, that team figures out what happened, they tell you in a short report in no uncertain terms with no minced words what you need to do to fix it, and then you fix it.”
      But the CDC report on the Sioux Falls Plant the CDC was not normal. It instructed the plant to “consider implementing…if feasible…when possible.” Wishy-washy instead of clear cut directives. And headed up with: “These recommendations are discretionary and are not required or mandated by CDC.”
      RM’s team narrowed down the abrupt change in CDC’s response to a 2 day window:
      Before: The normal straight forward CDC response to JBS Greeley CO on April 20th.
      After: The “Not required” CDC response to the Smithfield Sioux Falls IO on April 22nd.

    • May 4, 2020 at 1:24 pm

      Dramatic changes in CDC responses:
      JBS Greeley CO (April 20): Emphasize face coverings must cover nose and mouth at all times.”
      Smithfield Sioux Falls IO (April 22): “face covering are generally recommended.”
      CO (20th): “Provide all entrants (listed) to the plant with a face covering and show them how it needs to be worn.”
      SD (22nd): “If feasible, all employees should wear the face covering.”
      CO (20th): “teach workers to ask for new face coverings when tears becomes dirty, wet, and/or difficult to breathe through..”
      SD (22nd):“The facial covering should be discarded and replaced when dirty or wet, if possible.”
      CO (20th) “stagger breaks to minimize the total number of workers that are in common areas, locker rooms, lunchrooms and locker rooms at the same time.”
      SD (22nd) “staggering shifts, start times, and break time as much as feasible.”
      CO (20th): “Put hand washing stations near the outdoor break area and encourage hand washing…Install hand washing stations or additional sanitizer dispensers in the lunchroom.”
      SD (22nd): “Portable…hand washing facilities could be utilized.”
      CO (20th): “Physical barriers should not be used as a replacement for maintaining at least 6 feet between workers…if that is not possible, barriers, can be installed.”
      SD (22nd): “Consider the following actions to physically separate employees.”
      CO April 20 (20th):“Ensure all workers who have a fever (.1004oF) or one or more of the reported symptoms are sent directly to secondary screening…Provide specimen collection and ordering of COVID-19 testing on site for workers during secondary screening who are found to have fever and/symptoms. Entrants who are not workers at the plant who indicate they have a fever or symptoms should not be allowed entry into the plant.”
      SD (22nd) “If possible, ask employees about recent history of fever.”
      = Weak and watered down guidance in the middle of the biggest health threat.
      How did that happen in 2 days?

        SD (22nd) “If possible, ask employees about recent history of fever.”

        My god, my job won’t even let in the front lobby if my temperature is above a certain level AND I’m asked a series of medical questions. I’m not even allowed to enter the front lobby without a mask on and I’m required to wear it for the full shift. Even our cafeteria is closed for eat-in, to-go only, and we’re aren’t allowed to congregate unless its a full blown emergency.

      “We need the real CDC back and we need it now.”
      Dr. Ashish Jha, Director of the Harvard Global Health Institute:
      One fiasco after another: “This has been baffling to all of us in the public health world.”
      Dr. Jha has always believed the CDC to be the best public health agency in the world. Now suddenly the CDC has “repeatedly they messed up testing, they haven’t collected the data, the guidance that you’ve been laying out has been mushy and often not evidence-based. And my sense is that the leadership at the CDC has been sidelined. It is really really harmful to the American people.”
      Maddow: “Shouldn’t there be a CDC briefing every day?”
      Dr. Jha: “You would think the CDC would be the source of data and evidence for this pandemic…The CDC has just been absent…There’s clearly been a decision to sideline the CDC to make sure that they’re not collecting and presenting data to the American people. And It makes the work of all PH officials across the country much, much harder. We need the CDC back we really do, or we’re going to have a much harder time getting through this pandemic without them.
      Maddow: “How do you imagine this getting righted, we really need them back.”
      Dr. Jha: “The good news is most of the great people at the CDC…they’re still there so we don’t have to bring them back. The bad news is they’ve been muzzled…we have to find a way to unmuzzle them…to let them do their job…Congress?…public pressure…Dr. Redfield the appointed head of CDC…Is this the public health agency he wants to lead in the greatest pandemic in a century? And if he can’t do it he should step aside and make sure that somebody else can lead that agency and help the American people to get through tis period.”

    Yesterday: “A Todos Con BIden Moderated Discussion”.
    With labor leader and civil rights activist Dolores Huerta, actor John Leguizamo, Congresswoman Veronica Escobar and Former Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis.
    Fab John Leguizamo kicked off the event: “Knowing your history is knowing your power.”
    LEGUIZAMO:
    “We came from some of the greatest empires the world has ever known, the Incas, the Mayas, the Aztecs.
    The Incan empire was times bigger than any empire at the time.
    Bigger than the Ming Dynasty, bigger than the Tsarist Russia, bigger than the Ottoman Empire.
    The Incas had invented brain surgery with anaesthesia, and they had a binary code that predated computers.
    The Mayans invented the concept of zero. Before them, there was no number to call nothing, and then we gave the world the most important foods. We gave you corn, potatoes, tomatoes, chocolate, and chilies – can you believe that.? There was no spicy food before us!
    And look let me give you a little run down…
    -We are 20% of the U.S. population.
    -25% of the U.S. box office…less than 1% of the stories being told by Hollywood.
    -And yet we contribute 2.3 Trillion dollars to the U.S. economy.
    -If we were our own country we’d be the 10th largest country in the world.
    -We’re bigger than England, we’re like the 4th largest estate in America.
    -Our women are number #1 in small business creations at 87%.
    –And we save the housing market with 68% of total sales.
    So if you know this about your history, about your people…
    you’ll know if they try to depress us, demean us, exclude us, we’re still contributing.
    And being Latin is having a superpower.
    Just know that.”

      Apparently filled with royal intrigue, rewriting history, and succession to the throne. Decodes mayan writings and describes the royal history and major centers, entangled as any court in Europe.

    Boogaloo:
    Extremists new slang term for a coming civil war.
    Christopher Mathias who studies the far right (Huffpo):
    Explained to Chris Hayes that the Hawaiian short worn by one of the groups protesting Government lockdown was code for Boogaloo = coming civil war.
    And that these protestors are ‘not normal’.
    Mathias thinks this group has come out of the woodwork in response to the instability created by COVID-19.
    That it will organize and recruit, should be reported on, is dangerous, anti-Muslim, connected to bombings and murders, has a big fear of guns being taken. He added that Trump supporters and the groups involved
    have “a long history of being connected to white nationalist groups.”

    May 4, 2020 7:10 AM SANTEE —

    A man was spotted wearing a Ku Klux Klan hood in a Vons in the San Diego County city of Santee on Saturday, igniting outrage from the mayor, the head of the Anti-Defamation League in San Diego and others.

    A corporate spokeswoman said grocery clerks repeatedly asked the shopper to remove the hood or leave the store, located on Mission Gorge Road.

    A supervisor found the man once he was in a checkout line and asked him again to take off the hood or leave, said Melissa Hill, a spokeswoman for Vons, Albertsons and Pavilions stores in Southern California.

    This is why only testing people with symptoms is dumb.

    It’s dumb in food plants, in nursing homes, anywhere you actually need to detect all infections.

    “More than 370 workers at pork plant in Missouri tested positive for COVID-19. All were asymptomatic.”

    “Leilani Jordan, a 27-year-old woman with a developmental disability,
    who worked as a grocery clerk at a satellite store of Giant Food — a chain throughout three states —died from the coronavirus disease when contracted when earning her final paycheck. That check was for $20.64.
    She worked without a facial mask”

      “The ideological disease that cripples the United States is the belief that society does not exist beyond its commercial activity, meaning profits for corporations and their owners or shareholders — as sacred.
      An entire set of religious assumptions follow, most significantly that people like Jordan are martyrs for the God of profit. Their deaths are acceptable losses in the name of God and country, which mutate together into the bloodless idol of commerce.”

      “COVID-19 is also having a disproportionate economic impact on African American families. African American small businesses have been hit hard, and over 90% of African American-owned businesses are estimated to be shut out of the initial relief program due to preexisting, systemic disparities in lending. This is especially dire given that African American families have less of a financial cushion to fall back on in hard times.”
