Thanks for the share.   This is very informative.    It makes us realize we aren't out of the woods yet.

Looking at the data models showing the differences in "letting it ride" vs. social distancing controls is very eye opening.

It looks like the US along with other countries are declaring war on the cartels.   They are saying the cartels are trying to take advantage of the pandemic.

The city of Flint, Michigan just announced a curfew from 9 pm to 6 am for all non-essential people.

How is that a restriction? Why not make it 7pm to 9am or something?

Of course they are. A lot of the stimulus money is going to end up in the pockets of drug dealers.

Flint curfew

I can't speak for the mayor but there are still a lot of people ignorant about the virus.

My point was restricting people from 9pm to 6am isn't really much of a restriction. Why not actually put some teeth in it - what could someone non-essential be doing at 6:15 am that they can't do at 9am?

I completely agree with you but they were saying there was a lot of inner city young people hanging out at party stores late in the evening.   This curfew really doesn't do much.    Most of the stores including fast food places have changed their hours around here.

Yeah, okay, at least it'll give some teeth to the enforcement of that if it's going on.

The virus threatens to spread widely across Africa, where several countries have seen hundreds of positive tests, according to Johns...

So currently, even with China's fake numbers, it appears the mortality rate is about 5%.  That's scary.

Random Coronavirus thoughts...

Are we going to do all of this again when the 2nd (mutated) strain of coronavirus (COVID-20?) starts spreading? What about the 3rd... Is this the new normal?

I'm tired of hearing commercials stating that "We are in this together." We should be in this separately, right? Too literal?

If I am going to get COVID-19, assuming that I haven't already, I would rather get it now and get it over with.

What the media and policymakers are not telling us is that the longer we delay the development of herd immunity, the more high-risk people will die.

    • Just starting fresh on this thread, since I’m getting serious about my practice routine ... I thought I should do the challenge. Let me know if I’m doing anything wrong.... here we go. Day 1 start....   Worked through the takeaway and full swing flow drills at the range today for a couple hours with and without ball using driver, hybrid, iron, and wedge. Then, worked on the leading edge chip and pitch drill at the practice green for 30 min along with putting flow paying attention to torso rotation. 
    • Which watches do you use for this?
    • Someone posted a photo of Sleepy Hollow's 16th on the golf subreddit and I never realized there is a donut like indentation in the middle of the green. It's almost like a miniature golf hole.
    • Day 184: Didn’t intend to play today, but when I got to the course, it was empty. Hit some balls working on center-face contact and the course was still empty. So I played 18 solo. It was quite windy and seeming making all the long holes longer. Shot an 84, but can’t post solo rounds. Finally saw someone on 10 when I was finished.    I went back to my car and noticed the basket of balls I left was still there along with an alignment stick I left behind. So I hit a few more to get the ‘swing out from the top feel’ back down. Playing tomorrow morning again.
    • Day 12 (4/12/21) - More "Steady Head" drills today, without a club. I'm focusing on this aspect of the full swing for right now, but have begun the "Weight Forward" drills also.
