This was an economic reset

And here’s a prediction: many of them will never reopen. What a wonderful opportunity Mr. Virus has presented to the banks to shutter expensive pieces of real estate staffed by costly humans. Life is so much more efficient and profitable when people embrace online banking – even if they’re forced to by closed doors.

Michael Bloomberg’s commandeering of the 2020 Democratic party nomination campaign is a dangerous moment for the party and the country. If Democrats give in, it will have horrific consequences. Michael Moore lays out the truth of Bloomberg’s record and how support for Bloomberg is an endorsement of the Trumpian values we claim to have been resisting.

The Shocking Truth About Defibrillators – IEEE Spectrum

A recent article on a AED scavenger hunt got me interested in the topic, since I am interested in heart health. Having a working app seems like a great idea, similar to the Plugin App for finding electric car charging stations.

Yet despite the enormous investment in these AEDs, the death rate from sudden cardiac arrest is no better than it was 20 years ago. It still kills more Americans than lung, breast, and prostate cancers and AIDS combined. Worldwide, it kills about 7 million people a year.

In November 2007, Anna Malofiy awoke in her Southampton, Pa., home to find her husband, Eugene, shaking and unresponsive. She called 911 and attempted cardiopulmonary resuscitation. A few minutes later, a police officer arrived with an automated external defibrillator (AED), the Powerheart model, made by Cardiac Science Corp. By administering an electric shock, such devices can save your life if your heart stops beating.

Bernie kill shot and oil is the devil’s excrement

If you associate Bernie for president 2020 with socialism approaching communism, which most do, then watching this look at the destroyed state of Venezuela will swing you hard to the right.

A good part of the video includes a quote from the Oil Minister of Venezuela from the 1960s. He states, “ten years from now, twenty years from now, you will see; oil will bring us ruin. Oil is the Devil’s excrement.”

My guess is that the US would rather have Venezuela look like Colombia, which appears to be at the other side of the spectrum.

Both countries are sad cases compared to here, but it looks like Venezuela’s situation is more dire.
