  1. They should talk to the people I have heard telling stories about "the elites" engineering this to reduce the planet's overpopulation and save the environment.
  2. https://www.al.com/business/2020/03/another-rural-alabama-hospital-is-closing.html Pickens County.
  3. "An aging workforce A July 2019 article in the New England School of Medicine showed that from 2000 to 2017, the number of physicians younger than 50 years old living in rural areas decreased by 25%, and by 2017, more than half of rural physicians were at least 50 years old. More than a quarter were at least 60. By comparison, in urban areas only 39% of physicians were older than 50, and only 18% were older than 60." https://www.valdostadailytimes.com/news/local_news/aging-country-doctors-as-rural-physicians-age-out-health-care/article_ef4f188b-e1ba-5f5d-b4df-4bbd7a8519f2.html This is something I am keeping in the back of my mind. There is already a doctor shortage in a lot of the country, and older, overworked doctors are going to be at greater risk. Plus a lot of rural hospitals have closed in the last few years. Another one here in Alabama just announced it will close.
  4. It works fine, but it is a bit expensive. We make our own with koolaid packets, sugar, salt, and fake salt.
  5. We are following all of our high maintenance levels for respiratory care here. Obviously that would depend on someone's individual needs. For us it is BiPap/CPap to help keep lungs open, oxygen as needed, suction, regular chest percussion, etc. We are trying to keep everyone's lungs as healthy as possible, and hoping it helps.
  6. Yeah, I have also been shocked by the response we have gotten for living in a black neighborhood. My mother's current husband is obviously off the deep end. He started making comments that were "jokes" when we called him out, but then moved on to blatantly packing his gun on the few occasions he came here. We don't invite him here anymore. He is either rubbing off on my mom, or she is more comfortable expressing nastiness she used to keep to herself? She started making comments also when she visited but stopped when I called her out. She never commented on race in my boyfriends, but had plenty to say about my niece's father who is Hispanic. I didn't care about that, just that the guy treated my sister like crap before he ran off. I don't know if it is age. They are more racist than my grandparents ever were. I'm not sure how that happens.
  7. I was just talking to my BFF from NZ about this. She had originally been hoping they would have less contact than most countries because they aren't a travel hub like Europe, but I guess that's not the case. The domestic flights this person took a week after getting back are going to risk a lot more spread.
  8. Is it better or worse that these mistakes are based out of utter ignorance, and not only an attempt to manipulate what kids learn? This wasn't crafting a narrative intentionally. This was a complete lack of basic background knowledge.
  9. @Lang Syne Boardie I am under 40, educated in the US, and very concerned about what I have been reading.
  10. We use sugar to make homemade Gatorade when we are sick, but we use even less than you would use to make regular koolaid. 250 lbs of sugar would last us a long time. I know people who buy a lot for hummingbirds but that probably isn't what is going on LOL! I was in the same doctor office today as last week, same time of day, same people working. The phlebotomist who was coughing last week was wearing a mask today. I saw lots more sick people in the waiting room today. From my time waiting it sounds like a lot of people are wanting to get seen for symptoms they would usually completely ignore. The stores here in Alabama have been low on some things but overall shopping has been normal. Not too many extra people shopping, but all the sanitizing wipes my husband uses at work are gone. Their usual supplier is also on backorder. Our fedex driver had a big delivery to drop off for us the last couple days, but made a comment that he knows it is normal for us. It sounds like a lot of people are taking advantage of online ordering from what he said. We don't usually get deliveries after dark except during the holiday season. At the same time I am also hearing a lot of, "It is just the media. It isn't a big deal."
  11. I've seen a few posts in Facebook groups from families deciding to withdraw from their local schools and homeschool in response to this. That surprised me.
  12. Here is part of the problem. There are a few different photos of people helping transport patients that come up with that article. Some of those people are only wearing regular loop masks. We know what is going on and we are still putting people at risk.
  13. Thank you! Just our backyard, but our house is practically a zoo!
  14. This is a couple years old, me with a few of my boys.
