  1. So what about this guy? He seems highly qualified to speak on the subject. https://www.newsweek.com/key-defeating-covid-19-already-exists-we-need-start-using-it-opinion-1519535
  2. We have several tall palms and it scares me to watch someone climb them! One time, we hired the Subic Bay Freeport tree crew to trim them, and they had excellent safe equipment. Heavy duty harness and special boots with spikes. Their price was quite fair and they even had a chainsaw to cut the trunks into pieces. They also arrange a truck to pick it for only p1000, I think it was. So I thought that was the way we would go from then on. Then one day a year ago, one of the construction workers from next door told my wife "I'll climb up and trim it" for whatever she wanted to give him for it! I didn't know until I went outside and saw him way up there! This tree is near a concrete area too, and that made me even more scared! He lived to tell about it. We have coconuts drop quite often. I don't let the kids place in those areas.
  3. Yes, they just released the results of their stage 4 double blind study. Looks promising!
  4. Same here. We do have a few spats about money but almost always it is about me spending too much on something she could have gotten cheaper. She still thinks like the CPA she used to be and the very poor child she was. I have a hard time convincing her to spend MORE money! Honestly, I have a hard time imagining spending only 20k a month, let alone 8k. During normal times I spend 8k every month for fuel. I dropped 6k at the grocery store yesterday, but we have a family of 5 and my keto diet is expensive.
  5. That is my thought too. If I had to be quarantined, I think I would go for the guard at my home too.
  6. I think everyone has been learning from the beginning until now. Everyone including politicians, scientists, economists, doctors and us, the everyday man. Given hindsight, and foresight, and the identical pandemic / virus, what would your personal plan be to handle it, if you were in charge? Don't need it here but perhaps I will start a new topic for this. I think it would be interesting to see all the ideas.
  7. I know a few people who think they had it but never got tested. I'm not sure, but I think here in the Philippines, if you tested positive for anything (anti-bodies or the virus) you are going on a 14 day quarantine. Is that a correct statement? Here in the Freeport, two residents tested positive without symptoms and were required to be in a quarantine facility. The Freeport Covid rules are probably more strict than other areas for how the quarantine is done. However, one of them refused and thus had to pay for 24 hour security at his house, for the duration of the quarantine.
  8. I was curious to look at charts for just Victoria, but they don't have it on Worldmeters. When you look at the Australia charts, they are somewhat unique in that you can really see the second wave. In some U.S. states where some are saying they are having a second wave, they never had much of a first wave. So is that second wave in Australia mainly caused by Victoria? Did they have a mild first wave in Victoria?
  9. The timelines of when an outbreak starts and peaks are important to analyze. The U.S. is a big place with widely separated areas, in many cases. So you see the start and peak at much different times. Sweden was on the uphill slope when thread this started. Here is the latest.
  10. Yes, closing down only slows it temporarily, at great cost. Until there is a vaccine, the only way it can really go down to almost nothing is through herd immunity. Of course Tommy. That is their objective. Find the most negative things possible and push them hard until November. More shutdowns is their goal too. Anything to change the result in November. Consequences be damned. Economy, school, kids health, suicides, other diseases, police. Anarchists rioting, look the other way or call them peaceful. These are the sacrifices that they are willing to make.
  11. In the Philippines, what would be the optimal month to get the annual flu shot? In my records, we had them later in the year, like Sep / Oct / Nov. I remember part of this, not sure which year(s), was due to the kid's pediatrician telling us the new shot was not available yet.
  12. I will add one thing that could impact your ability to do a check deposit as described. When I installed the Chase Bank Mobile App and started it for the first time, it asked to know my location. I didn't think that would be a good idea, so I backed out. I then installed Express VPN for my phone, set it for California, and restarted the Chase App. This time it did not ask for my location and I proceeded with the check deposit. Some U.S. banks may not care if you are overseas, but I did not want to chance it. I will always use the VPN when using the Chase App.
  13. Honestly, I don't know what to think or believe anymore. "Experts" say one thing and a month later say the reverse. I am certain everything is highly politicized. Especially the going back to school issue. As far as the drug is concerned, I don't think it should be so restricted because of possible side effects, after it has been in use for 60 years. Perhaps the FDA notice on it is because they know that so many Americans have heart problem comorbidity. I'm taking Arcoxia for my hip pain and it is not approved by the U.S. FDA due to possible heart side effects. However, the entire rest of world uses it successfully and it is the only thing that works for my hip pain. By coincidence, hydroxychloroquine is also an arthritis treatment.
  14. I think that would work, provided the e-deposit software accepts it as legit. You would need pictures of the front and back of the check, print them, sign the back, then take pictures of the front and back with the e-deposit app. Chase has some verification in there and when you submit the pictures, it tells you it has read the routing number and account number. And a personal check would be on hold for a while too. The one I deposited was a major business check. Chase also offers Zelle. I don't know exactly how it works, but it is free, uses phones, and is almost instant. I think both parties have to have it. https://www.zellepay.com/how-it-works
