    I spray my masks with silver dihydrogen citrate to leave a residual amount of silver both outside and inside the mask. Since SDC is non-toxic, I also apply it to my face and hands.

      Coronavirus and the economy II

    Bank shares are tumbling this morning after the British Prudential Regulation Authority wrote to lenders asking them to halt dividend payments. HSBC, Standard Chartered Plc, Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc, Barclays Plc and Lloyds Banking Group Plc all canceled outstanding payments and said there would be no dividends in 2020. Regulators in Europe are also pushing back against bonus payments to to senior staff.  April 1, 2020

      Silver skin protection?

    I bought it from Puregreen24. https://puregreen24.com/

    Sneaky Amazon used to list the product, but has dropped it.

    Pure Bioscience used to maintain its own online store. Perhaps you can call the company, which recently sent a shipment to an Asian distributor.

      Is there really a chance that this is being overblown?

    If you were the average person, what would you pay attention to — in terms of the news and the numbers?

    One signal to watch out for is if the first case in an area is a death or a severe case, because that suggests you had a lot of community transmission already. As a back of the envelope calculation, suppose the fatality rate for cases is about 1 percent, which is plausible. If you’ve got a death, then that person probably became ill about three weeks ago. That means you probably had about 100 cases three weeks ago, in reality. In that subsequent three weeks, that number could well have doubled, then doubled, then doubled again. So you’re currently looking at 500 cases, maybe a thousand cases.

    Three weeks ago, Italy had less than 20 cases, now over 10,000. San Francisco had a death last week of a 90-year-old man, which indicates the city now has hundreds of cases.

      "Reasonable" is the key word

    Terry V. Ohio required there be a reasonable suspicion for a police officer to stop an individual. Under Bloomberg’s stop and frisk, individuals were stopped simply because of location, sex, race, and appearance. The judge did not consider those criteria as reasonable and therefore not constitutional.

    To the writer who feels that being stopped and frisked is a big deal. It is the first time. Having been frisked at least ten times in my youth, after the first couple it was just an annoyance. During recent years, I have been frisked a half dozen times at the airport. Although I am a senior, a couple of times I had to dump my carry-on bag and backpack and open every container including unscrewing the tube of toothpaste. My petite wife had a chemical test on her shoes in Mexico City!

      Guns & weapons

    NY Times:

    Stop-question-frisk, which the Supreme Court of the United States has found to be constitutional, is an important part of that record of success. It has taken some 8,000 guns off the streets over the past decade, and some 80,000 other weapons. 

    Supreme Court Ruling, interesting, which indicates that the stop and frisk policy in NY City was unconstitutional.

    Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1 (1968), was a landmark decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in which the Court ruled that the Fourth Amendment’s prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures is not violated when a police officer stops a suspect on the street and frisks him or her without probable cause to arrest, if the police officer has a reasonable suspicion that the person has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a crime and has a reasonable belief that the person “may be armed and presently dangerous.”

    For their own protection, after a person has been stopped, police may perform a quick surface search of the person’s outer clothing for weapons if they have reasonable suspicion that the person stopped is armed. This reasonable suspicion must be based on “specific and articulable facts” and not merely upon an officer’s hunch. This permitted police action has subsequently been referred to in short as a “stop and frisk,” or simply a “Terry frisk”. The Terry standard was later extended to temporary detentions of persons in vehicles, known as traffic stops; see Terry stop for a summary of subsequent jurisprudence.[citation needed]

    The rationale behind the Supreme Court decision revolves around the understanding that, as the opinion notes, “the exclusionary rule has its limitations.” The meaning of the rule is to protect persons from unreasonable searches and seizures aimed at gathering evidence, not searches and seizures for other purposes (like prevention of crime or personal protection of police officers).[citation needed]

    I was stopped and frisked back in the early 60s before the Supreme Court decision.

      Body makes it own glucose

    When you’re not eating – especially overnight or between meals, the body has to make its own sugar. The liver supplies sugar or glucose by turning glycogen into glucose in a process called glycogenolysis.

    Has there been any studies that ingesting hydrogen peroxide kills viruses? No, there isn’t because the chemical never enters the bloodstream. You can sanitize your skin with it, but alcohol is better.

    Another example of fake science on this website.

      re: Antibiotics for bacterial secondary pneumonias

    Don’t forget there are two vaccines for pneumonia. If you are a senior, you should get injected immediately.
