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.

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.

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.

    • With the testing results thus far it looks like Red Bull really just decided, "Yeah, the zero pods were actually a good idea but Mercedes is just stupid." Both Newey and GP (Max's race engineer) were grinning ear to ear as Max went out and smashed every other time on the board by nearly a full second despite not being on a qualifying simulation run.

    • DAY 3:  Swing practice in the Golf Garage (52°, PW, 7i) for 30 minutes.  A little fall off from yesterday's gaudy numbers on the shot monitor, which I'm attributing to a little fatigue in the swing.  Post-op rehab continues! ☺️
    • I know of only a few instances where players signed an incorrect score card and my gut is the vast majority of those instances were simple errors and not intentional cheating BUT these are "Pros" and they need to be held to a high standard.  If several thousands of dollars, or millions, is at stake they need to be the professionals they are and take care.  I hate it when it happens but I'll say I agree with keeping the DQ for incorrect score card submitted. AND, since I am not in favor of bifurcation on other parts of the game I'll also hold myself and other amateurs to the same standard. Oh, and I do not year Jordan complaining about the rule.  In fact he said "Rules are Rules and I take full responsibility".  Also, see Scheffler's comments near the end of the attached.  I think this debate is more about fans & the media complaining and not so much about the Professionals complaining. Following Jordan Spieth DQ, debate rages over incorrect-scorecard rule Spieth was disqualified after signing an incorrect scorecard following Round 2.      
    • A few more issues with getting rid of validating scores, and PGA Tour players doing their own scores.  1) The PGA Tour does not run all the tournaments. Example, the Masters is run by Augusta National, the PGA Championship is run by PGA of America, The US Open is run by the USGA, and The Open is run by the R&A. How do you handle these situations? What if the US Open and The Open do not want to use electronic scoring? Do you want golfers to bounce between having to keep track of their scores or not?  2) What if you are on a course where it would be difficult to have score keepers on every hole?  3) What about the Champions tour, Korn Ferry Tour, PGA Latin America, PGA Tour Canada, PGA Tour China? There are other organizations under the umbrella of the PGA Tour, that use the same rules, that probably can't have the resources to do scoring on every hole.  4) Will a score keeper be versed in the rules of golf to know how to score the correct penalty? What if they miss a penalty?  5) Would the players want to validate their scores after a round? I would.  6) People are like, well other sports have it. How many balls are in play in other sports? Football, one. Basketball, one. Baseball, one. In Golf, if you have a 120 golfer field. You could have over 8500 shots taken on the course. Are we sure the PGA Tour can accurately keep track of all those shots? What if a golfer takes 5 hacks to get out of the trees and the scorekeeper missed 3 of them?  It is much more reasonable to keep scoring as is.  I still believe the penalty should be DQ. You can't prove intent of cheating. Not signing for a correct score is worth the highest penalty.
