    “The NFL’s Covid-19 Finding That Saved the Season”
    “The coronavirus gospel of ‘within six feet for more than 15 minutes’ wasn’t enough—and the NFL had the data
    to prove it.”
    (https://www.wsj.com/articles/super-bowl-nfl-covid-cdc-11612104460)
    —Interestingly, the very brief encounters between players on the field had not resulted in infections. As for the rest of us…after looking at tons of data the NFL found that 6 feet distancing is not enough, and 15 minutes of interaction may be too long. CDC has published the findings..
    = new protocols needed especially now that we’re getting flashing lights about the U.K. variant.

    A Black History Moment:

    Frederick McKinley Jones – “Mr. Freeze”

    While at the supermarket, most people take for granted that their food and its additives not only had to be transported from another location, but that it had to be kept at a low temperature to prevent spoilage. Refrigerating food is a very old idea, but up until the middle of the 20th century, nobody had figured out how to transport perishables over a long distance. Frederick Jones found a way and transformed American industry.

    Inventor Fred Jones’ contributions during his lifetime were momentous, and can be felt to this day. A naturally gifted mechanic, Jones was self-taught, which helped him to invent a portable air-conditioning unit for trucks in 1938. This unit could be used to preserve perishable foods during transport, and the patents Jones were awarded for the product led to the formation of the Thermo King Corporation. His inventions were increasingly vital during WWII, when they were used to transport blood and medicine to battlefields and hospitals.

    In total Jones was granted more than 60 patents for inventions including a defroster, a two-cycle gas engine, and a thermostat system. He later served as an consultant to both the U.S. Defense Department and the U.S. Bureau of Standards on refrigeration. Thirty years after his death in 1961, Jones was posthumously awarded the National Medal of Technology, engineering’s highest honor.

    “Text Messages Show Top Trump Campaign Fundraiser’s Key Role Planning the Rally That Preceded the Siege”
    “Caroline Wren, a Trump fundraiser,
    is listed as a “VIP Advisor” in a National Park Service permit for the Jan. 6th rally at the Ellipse.
    Text messages and a planning memo show the title downplays the active role she played in organizing the event.
    “In the week leading up to the Jan. 6 rally in Washington, D.C., that exploded into an attack on the Capitol, a top Trump campaign fundraiser issued a directive to a woman who had been overseeing planning for the event.
    “Get the budget and vendors breakdown to me and Justin,” Caroline Wren wrote to Cindy Chafian, a self-described “constitutional conservative,” in a Dec. 28 text message obtained by ProPublica.”

    “Russian Activist Navalny Sentenced to More Than 2 Years in Prison”
    “A Russian court sentenced Aleksei A. Navalny, Russia’s most prominent opposition leader, to more than two years in prison on Tuesday, a decision likely to send him for a lengthy term in a far-flung penal colony for the first time….The authorities previously tried to contain him with short jail terms of a few weeks to avoid making Mr. Navalny into a political martyr.”
    —how scared is putin…in any case negative keeps him in the news…we know that strategy.

    It’s just what it is and acting any differently is no different than acting as if you can walk into Interstate highway traffic and survive.

    Also, this is the consequence of 55 years of refusing to convict and jail Presidents for their crimes.

    Some complexity is real, some is merely the result of skillful obfuscation and distraction.

    Never before have we had the expertise and tools to obliterate the sources of obfuscation and distraction that are enabling literally a few thousand (< 3000) humans to pursue their unbridled greed at the expense of 99.99998 % of the total human population alive today.

    What we need to do is laser focus on leveraging the expertise and SCALING the tools.

    A dedicated educator who happens to be First Lady of the United States is just the person to champion such an unprecedented education endeavor.

    Speaker Pelosi:
    Statement on Passage of Rule Change Mandating Fines for Refusing to Follow New Chamber Security
    Screening Protocols:

    ““Four weeks ago tomorrow, a deadly insurrection was waged against the U.S. Capitol and those who work and serve in this temple of our Democracy, in which several people died and nearly 140 police officers were seriously injured.

    “We all have a solemn responsibility to honor the service and sacrifice of the Capitol Police for the valor that they showed that harrowing day. Yet, just days after the assault, many House Republicans began disrespecting our heroes by refusing to adhere to basic precautions keeping members of our Congressional community safe – including by dodging metal detectors, physically pushing past police, and even attempting to bring firearms into the chamber.

    “It is beyond comprehension why any Member would refuse to adhere to these simple, commonsense steps to keep this body safe. It is sad that we have been forced to move forward with a rule change imposing fines on those who refuse to abide by these protections, but the People’s House must and will be safe, so that we can honor our responsibility to do the People’s work.”

    A fine might be a slap on the wrist for those who can afford it and might do little to deter them. Too bad removal from committee assignments up to expulsion/suspension can’t be a remedy after a certain number of violations.
