Let Them Eat Dirt
Author: BobR    Date: 05/27/2020 13:26:36

The coronavirus pandemic has hit the U.S. incredibly hard. As of this writing, there are 1.7M cases, and over 100K deaths. The effects are not just devastating to the health of those who catch it - it has also pushed our health care "system" to the limits (including those front-line workers dealing with the sick). Businesses of all types are going under as workers (and customers) are forced to stay home.

One of the most disturbing aspects of this is the effect on farmers. They too are being affected by a lack of customers (restaurants) and lack of workers. The former is hard to understand - people still need to eat, but will be doing so at home. Why would the demand for food decrease?

Good Morning.

Here is a bowl of delicious "Trippa alla Romana". A depression-era food that can be classified as "Italian Soul Food". It's a longtime favourite for 3 generations of the Italian side of my family.

Schrödinger's tRump
Author: BobR    Date: 2020-05-20 12:00:00

Most readers of this blog are familiar with "Schrödinger's cat". The idea is that if you put a cat and something that could kill it into a box, you won't know whether the cat is dead or alive until you open the box and look inside. It's a thought experiment meant to demonstrate the problem with trying to measure quantum mechanics. The idea is that the act of observing (or measuring) something can change its state, thus making the observation measurement flawed. This notion can be applied to measuring electrical current, temperature, etc., although to a much lesser degree.

How does this apply to tRump? Monday, tRump declare that he had been taking hydroxychloroquine for about 10 days. That would correspond to the date when it was announced that tRump's personal valet had tested positive for Coronavirus. He stated subsequently that he was taking it as a "preventative".

Never mind that tests show that it's efficacy is nil, and positive results are strictly anecdotal. The few somewhat controlled studies have showed no difference in rates of improvement between the drug and a placebo.
