    That is what is needed. Something we are all going to have to live with for the next year or two.

    Is there money in it though? What can you really get at a foodbank that you can flip and make money both for you and your cohorts?

    Those kind of schemes makes sense when there's a decent resell value. I guess some people are bored enough to waste that time for a dollar.
    Some dude around Lago Vista went around buying up all the eggs in the stores to resell at a farmer's market. Local businesses got wind and offered eggs to consumers at their cost. Never underestimate the lengths someone will go to scam.

    This is from an older article in San Francisco...

    "Visit the farmers market in downtown San Francisco on Sundays, and you may see, past the stands of organic lettuce and fresh flowers, a few elderly women hunched over a random assortment of condiments and canned goods. As security approaches, they quickly scatter, only to set up shop on the opposite corner a few moments later.

    “It’s like throwing sand into the ocean, it just comes right back,” said Ken Hurst, security officer for the Heart of the City Farmers’ Market at U.N. Plaza.

    According to several food pantries, elderly recipients of free food disbursements are turning around and selling the donations at various locations throughout San Francisco. Those who work in the business of handing out food say that the practice is a sign of how bad the economy has gotten for seniors trying to survive in the city. Others agree, but also say that at some food pantries, the desperation has intensified the compe ion for food.

    A woman selling food near U.N. Plaza acknowledged that she goes all over the city to pick up food at the pantries. She then sells the items to help make ends meet.

    “We don’t get enough money for rent or for daily use,” said one woman who was selling food donations she had picked up earlier. The elderly woman spoke through an interpreter and asked to remain anonymous."

    Director of key federal vaccine agency says his departure was retaliation
    Updated 5:18 PM EDT April 22, 2020
    CNN

    The director of the office involved in developing a coronavirus vaccine says he was abruptly dismissed from his post in part because he resisted efforts to widen the availability of a coronavirus treatment pushed by President Donald Trump.
    Dr. Rick Bright had led BARDA, the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, since 2016 until Tuesday, when was reassigned to a narrower position. He also announced he will file a whistleblower complaint with the Department of Health and Human Services' inspector general.

    "I believe this transfer was in response to my insistence that the government invest the billions of dollars allocated by Congress to address the Covid-19 pandemic into safe and scientifically vetted solutions, and not in drugs, vaccines and other technologies that lack scientific merit," Bright said in a lengthy statement issued Wednesday. "I am speaking out because to combat this deadly virus, science -- not politics or cronyism -- has to lead the way."

    He cited "clashes with political leadership" as a reason for his sidelining, as well as his resistance to "efforts to fund potentially dangerous drugs promoted by those with political connections."

    Bright clashed directly with Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and Bob Kadlec, the assistant secretary for preparedness and response, two people familiar with the situation told CNN.

    One source said the "political leadership" Bright referred to in his statement is Azar.

    Bright previously did not respond to repeated requests for comment on his departure by CNN. The Department of Health and Human Services did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment on Bright's statement.

    Bright said he "limited the broad use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, promoted by the administration as a panacea, but which clearly lack scientific merit."

    Trump repeatedly promoted that therapeutic treatment for coronavirus, touting its possible effects at White House briefings as recently as April 13.

    A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed Bright's move in a statement to CNN Tuesday and said he will now lead a new government project: a public-private partnership on vaccine development and treatment.

    "On April 17, the National Ins utes of Health (NIH) announced a new public-private partnership -- the Accelerating COVID-19 Therapeutic Interventions and Vaccines (ACTIV) partnership -- to accelerate the development of COVID-19 vaccine and treatment options. At the same time, given the simultaneous importance of accelerating the development of diagnostic tests for COVID-19, Dr. Rick Bright will transfer the skills he has applied as Director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) to the National Ins utes of Health, as part of a bold plan to accelerate the development and deployment of novel point-of-care testing platforms," the HHS statement said.

    Bright had been with the agency as its influenza and Emerging Infectious Diseases Division director since 2010 before he was tapped to lead it in late 2016.

    BARDA is a small, but powerful agency with remarkable purchasing power. Though little-known, it is especially critical during a pandemic, which is why Bright's abrupt departure surprised his colleagues.

    Bright was removed from his position but is not resigning, the source familiar said. He said Wednesday he will request that the HHS inspector general "investigate the manner in which this administration has politicized the work of BARDA and has pressured me and other conscientious scientists to fund companies with political connections as well as efforts that lack scientific merit."

    He has not yet filed the request, according to the source, but intends to do so in the next day or so.

    His lawyers said in the statement that that they will request a stay of the termination and that Bright "be permitted to remain in his position" pending the investigation's findings.

    This unaualified, incompetent POS Trump is trying to kill as many Americans as is humanly possible.

    What happened to free market and anarcho capitalism? I thought scamming and price gouging was fair game.

    Yeah, outdoor dining would be a nice alternative to bring back some of those server jobs. And the movie industry seriously needs to start looking into outdoor drive-in solutions. They're fooling themselves if they think people will comfortable in a few month returning to indoor theaters.

    Yeah...I know a lot of people are die hard "have to see it in theaters" people. But I think there's also a lot that are always border line about going to the theater or waiting for it to stream. I'm sure the COVID is enough to be the tie breaker for a large % of them.

    For sure this thing circulates super easily in HVAC and enclosed environments (elevators, tour buses, subways, nursing facilities). If they can space tables out >6', wear masks, check temps on entry, I don't see why it wouldn't be a possibility. All that follows the guidelines.

    Typical Chumpy, not at all interested in the content, just the presenters. And since he waited 7 minutes to respond to the latest, he actually watched part then pretended to guess the contents as a defense to his first knee jerk reponse.

    Another display of dishonesty by the dishonest hermit troglodyte.

    He didn't read the study correctly. Even less % occurred outdoors.

    Abstract

    Background: By early April 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had infected nearly one million people and had spread to nearly all countries worldwide. It is essential to understand where and how SARS-CoV-2 is transmitted. Methods: Case reports were extracted from the local Municipal Health Commissions of 320 prefectural cities (municipalities) in China, not including Hubei province, between 4 January and 11 February 2020. We identified all outbreaks involving three or more cases and reviewed the major characteristics of the enclosed spaces in which the outbreaks were reported and associated indoor environmental issues. Results: Three hundred and eighteen outbreaks with three or more cases were identified, involving 1245 confirmed cases in 120 prefectural cities. We divided the venues in which the outbreaks occurred into six categories: homes, transport, food, entertainment, shopping, and miscellaneous. Among the identified outbreaks, 53.8% involved three cases, 26.4% involved four cases, and only 1.6% involved ten or more cases. Home outbreaks were the dominant category (254 of 318 outbreaks; 79.9%), followed by transport (108; 34.0%; note that many outbreaks involved more than one venue category). Most home outbreaks involved three to five cases. We identified only a single outbreak in an outdoor environment, which involved two cases. Conclusions: All identified outbreaks of three or more cases occurred in an indoor environment, which confirms that sharing indoor space is a major SARS-CoV-2 infection risk.

    Was I right?

    Didn't watch. I just guessed. Even Dr. Oz flipped on this one. She could probably still get Dr. Phil.

    "a Chinese trial showed that Gilead Science’s (GILD.O)

    remdesivir did not improve patients’ condition or reduce the pathogen’s presence in the bloodstream.

    Gilead said the results from the study were inconclusive as it was terminated early."

    Now Sasse can apologize for costing us $3.2 trillion with the tax cut he voted for that went largely to stock buybacks. Ooh but the people that got laid off got a few crumbs.
