Well, here's an interesting website.  It's aggregated data from Kinsa, a 'smart' thermometer which sends all it's temperature readings back to the mothership.  Scroll down the page a little and you'll see a map showing trends, observed and atypical temperature readings.

https://healthweather.us/

In the Trends tab you'll see that temp readings all over the country are decreasing except for parts of Colorado and New Mexico where they are slightly on the rise.  Stay sheltered, 57.  (rising from a very low base as is evident on the Observed tab so not really alarming)

On the Observed tab you'll see that everywhere has only mild readings except for around New York City and Northern Michigan (Ypsi - shop at 7am!).  Both of these locations are still experiencing decreasing temps as per the Trends tab.

And on the Atypical tab you'll see that it's normal or below everywhere but around New York City and southern Florida (where a bunch New Yorkers have run to escape the virus and have now been put into quarantine by the local Floridian authorities).


It seems that not only are the increasingly stringent distancing and closure rules intended to slow the coronavirus but they are definitely putting a dagger in the heart of the regular sickness trends.

(EDIT: of course, this data runs against the theory that the CV is already widespread as fever is one of the most common symptoms.  Surprisingly, King County, WA reads as normal in the readings.  That place has seen the CV in the wild since January and until it took off in NYC was ground zero in the US.  I guess all data is interesting but nothing is easily definitive.)

Thanks for the advice, but post-retirement, 7 AM is a no-go zone!  If only Fresh Thyme (the store with an 11-12 senior time) had my bourbon! ;)  Evan Williams Honey bourbon is worth the risk - if anyone tries to invade my social distance, they'll be smashed by my cart!  (But both the dog and the cat need food, so the trip is on.)

Besides, Ypsi is about as far from northern Michigan as one can get without being in (shudder!) Ohio.

Here's a good development.  Let's hope it brings back a very good story.  Hoping for the best, as always.

https://www.smh.com.au/world/europe/game-changer-britain-days-away-from-releasing-millions-of-coronavirus-finger-prick-tests-20200326-p54dyy.html

Quote
The British government is just "days" away from releasing 3.5 million self-administered finger-prick tests that could prove a game-changer in easing the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic...

The public will eventually be able to take the test at home to determine whether they have had coronavirus and developed antibodies, meaning they can avoid lockdowns and go back to work because they are immune and cannot infect others...

Professor Sharon Peacock, the director of Public Health England's National Infection Service, told MPs the kits were in the final stages of testing at a laboratory in Oxford and could be approved for mass distribution by the end of this week...

Whitty last week said the antibody tests were an "absolute priority".

"We'll be able to say to somebody, 'You've had this virus, you're not likely to get it again at least in the immediate term, and now we can be confident you can return to work and now we can be confident you don't need to be taking some of the precautions you’ve been taking to date'," he said.

It looks like the battle between the epidemiology departments of Oxford and the Imperial College is on.  I'm cheering for the toffs of Oxford.

Well at least we’ve got Take Me Back Tuesday!!!
Man did SJU start out playing tight in this game!
https://youtu.be/8tj7WXsU54s

We had extra point issues in this game too!

I really enjoyed watching this, thanks for posting.  I wish the radio broadcast was still like this (with or without Linnemann).  Less bias, more professional for the most part.  My favorite line of the broadcast was, "we really don't know much about Porta yet."

Forgot about Johnson going for it on 4th and 2 at midfield and not getting it, setting up a short field for SJU to score before halftime.

Blake Elliot could absolutely take over, and he didn't even have the best game.  A couple of crucial drops.  Still a dominating performance. 

It's too bad that Kirchoff was injured before the last drive to see if Bethel could answer with a couple of minutes left.  Tough spot for the back up qb.

Am I imagining this or was this game supposed to be played at Bethel and they gave SJU the home game???

Porta definitely had some big days against SJU. Wonder where he ranks among the leagues best backs? Linnemann did sneak in a couple "cheap shots" in regards to Bethel. Mark was noticeably more reserved.
I forgot about that 4th and 2 as well. Found myself saying that was dumb but thanks.
I doubt Bethel would have give-up a home game on their grass field in November.
Watching it made me realize how lucky SJU was to win that game. Easily could have lost to U$T and BU and the 2003 would have been a faint memory. Imagine what a buzz kill John's 409 win would have been against Crown College????

The antibody test would definitely be a holy grail for testing in getting those back in the workforce.

My questions would be though, could we add another high volume test to are already stressed labs in the US? How quickly can production happen to where it expands to the US? And, with it being protected health info, how honest will employees be with tier employers? They might like the part-time work from home life. For the hourly’s that have faced pay reductions or job cuts this would be a GameChanger to get many of them back to work more quickly, but do they lie the other way?

Frank Rajkowski was reminiscing about this game on Twitter a few days ago and talked about how the St. Cloud Times wanted to run a commemorative print if SJU won the game.

"It had been decided that we would print a commemorative issue to hand out to fans at Clemens Stadium leaving the game if the Johnnies won. But the call to go to press or not had to be made at halftime when SJU was up 19-14. I think I was the one who had to make the call. So we printed and the game swung back and forth in the second half with Bethel leading late in the 4th quarter. Blake Elliott returned a kickoff 50 yards to set up the game-winning TD and I was spared the blame for having to dump a whole run in the Mississippi River or something."

Thanks for the advice, but post-retirement, 7 AM is a no-go zone!

I don't know, my dad still gets up at 5:30-6:00!  :D

I went grocery shopping at 7:30 a.m. today.  Wasn't too bad.  It boggles my mind that there was literally no sugar, flour, or rice, though.  Doesn't there come a point when everyone has enough of these?  I ended up going to Byerly's to get the two things that Cub was out of, but other than that, I shouldn't have to go to the store for at least 2 weeks.

Crown was sooo bad.  I remember watching their receivers warm up and thinking, "I could run better routes than that," and I have never run a pass route in my life.

I did a 7AM target run a few days ago.  There were probably 30 or so ppl lined up to get in the door, and 100% of them went straight back to the toilet paper section.  It was bizarre.  I was there for groceries, and got everything we needed.

I'm sure that some of them were legitimately running low, but I can't help but wonder how many of them are making a daily habit of making sure that they're one of the people who can buy TP.  One guy who was loading up when I left had a suburban filled with paper towels and TP.  Seems like this activates some weird mental health issues in some people.

We're good for a few more weeks on TP in our household...wondering if it will have tempered by the time we need some, or if I'll have to join the hoard rushing to the back of the store when the open the doors.

We thought this too when it all started. When we got to the last pack we started looking. Nothing. Down to the last role. Begged a pack off some friends (they were happy to give it but we all appreciated the joke when he put it at the end of the driveway for pickup but stood his 6 year old halfway down with a water gun to drive off the scavengers!). Ended up on the last roll of that pack before we could finally get some at a store. Have enough for 2 weeks now. So I'm going to start looking again tomorrow.

If anyone is in desperate need of toilet paper I can spare a square.  I'm in Highland Park.  PM me.

Yeah, I think the odds of angry mobs with pitchforks and torches after this is all over is increasing.  The same Imperial College scientist who scared the world ten days ago when he predicted 400k dead Britons, 18 months of lockdown and peak infection in three months requiring 30x the supply of critical beds available in Britain now says just ten days later?  Deaths in the UK are unlikely to exceed 20k and could be much lower.  That's flu territory.

So, the big changes in his model?  He didn't include any widespread testing but now sees it is possible.  And it now appears from data out of Europe that the virus is more infectious than he modelled 10 days ago, meaning far more people are infected now that he modelled, decreasing the severity of the bug.  He also assumes most people are not asymptomatic.

That second article on his change of heart has him specifically mentioning the Oxford analysis.  It looks like the doomsday assumptions are being tested.  Go Oxford.  I sure hope they are right.

EDIT:  A small correction.  His original model said up to 510k dead in Britain and 2.2 million in the US.  He's also the modelling behind the covidactnow.com website.  Hmm... We're up for a very interesting two weeks.

And of that 20K, he says that half of them would have likely died by the end of the year regardless due to age.

Yes, that's quite a reversal in only ten days.  It will be very interesting to see how the next ten days go.

I saw an old lady (my age) at Walmart with 36 rolls of TP. If she really needs all those, I suspect covid-19 should not be her main concern. Are these people nuts or what?

I spent 3 days in isolation at Alliance Hospital. Wasn't feeling well and I'm old! After many IV's, shots and numerous pills I was released. Got tested for the Coronavirus and it came back NEGATIVE! I do have a rhinovirus (cold) and pneumonia. Working on those at home with numerous medications. 57Johnnie is right- getting older is not for sissies.

I direct my prayers to all the other people affected one way or the other by this pandemic.

As a small child, I remember WWll. The country joined together to fight an enemy we all knew. Now we must join together to fight an enemy we've never seen.

God Bless all you guys, your families, your friends and everyone touched by this virus. I'm lucky. I don't have it, others are not so lucky!

Oh! Go Everybody! That includes doctors, nurses, nurses aides, techs, nurse practioners and anyone involved with the battle of this horrific Iillness.

STAY SAFE! STAY WELL!
