New York coronavirus: City set to bury dead in parks as morgues overflow by bradlux in news

[–]Nemacolin 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Didn't I just read in the Failing New York Times that burial in parks was not an option? Harts Island has lots of room. There are plenty of other places where such a think could be done in a more private & respectful manner.

==eta==

Nope, it was the Daily News.

A band of criminals -- Rockland, Idaho by Nemacolin in LettersToTheEditor

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Writing a letter to the editor is a possible sign of madness. Writing a long letter to the editor certainly is.

Are we led by a band of criminals?

Let us examine this question together.

× “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” (Declaration of Independence, paragraph 2)

If government is delegated powers by the people, it must hold that we cannot delegate a power we do not have. We can protect our property so we can elect a sheriff. We can protect our borders so we can muster an army. But elected officials can only exercise powers we the people give and we cannot give what we do not have.

Do I have power to force a private business to close down for even one minute? No! Then Gov. Brad Little has no such power. Do I have power to confine people to their homes? No! Then Gov. Brad Little has no such power.

If this abuse of power goes unaddressed by the people, then we are the people spoken of by Ben Franklin, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

James Madison is the primary author of the Constitution of the United States. If any man understood the intended purpose of government and the natural rights of men under the Constitution, James Madison is that man. I am concluding with “PROPERTY” a paper written by Madison. This should be required reading in every grade from kindergarten up through the highest collegiate levels.

This term in its particular application means “that dominion which one man claims and exercises over the external things of the world, in exclusion of every other individual.”

In its larger and juster meaning, it embraces every thing to which a man may attach a value and have a right; and which leaves to every one else the like advantage.

In the former sense, a man’s land, or merchandise, or money is called his property.

In the latter sense, a man has a property in his opinions and the free communication of them.

He has a property of peculiar value in his religious opinions, and in the profession and practice dictated by them.

He has a property very dear to him in the safety and liberty of his person.

He has an equal property in the free use of his faculties and free choice of the objects on which to employ them.

In a word, as a man is said to have a right to his property, he may be equally said to have a property in his rights.

Where an excess of power prevails, property of no sort is duly respected. No man is safe in his opinions, his person, his faculties, or his possessions.

Where there is an excess of liberty, the effect is the same, tho’ from an opposite cause.

Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own.

According to this standard of merit, the praise of affording a just securing to property, should be sparingly bestowed on a government which, however scrupulously guarding the possessions of individuals, does not protect them in the enjoyment and communication of their opinions, in which they have an equal, and in the estimation of some, a more valuable property.

More sparingly should this praise be allowed to a government, where a man’s religious rights are violated by penalties, or fettered by tests, or taxed by a hierarchy. Conscience is the most sacred of all property; other property depending in part on positive law, the exercise of that, being a natural and unalienable right. To guard a man’s house as his castle, to pay public and enforce private debts with the most exact faith, can give no title to invade a man’s conscience which is more sacred than his castle, or to withhold from it that debt of protection, for which the public faith is pledged, by the very nature and original conditions of the social pact.

That is not a just government, nor is property secure under it, where the property which a man has in his personal safety and personal liberty, is violated by arbitrary seizures of one class of citizens for the service of the rest. A magistrate issuing his warrants to a press gang, would be in his proper functions in Turkey or Indostan, under appellations proverbial of the most compleat despotism.

That is not a just government, nor is property secure under it, where arbitrary restrictions, exemptions, and monopolies deny to part of its citizens that free use of their faculties, and free choice of their occupations, which not only constitute their property in the general sense of the word; but are the means of acquiring property strictly so called. What must be the spirit of legislation where a manufacturer of linen cloth is forbidden to bury his own child in a linen shroud, in order to favor his neighbor who manufactures woolen cloth; where the manufacturer and wearer of woolen cloth are again forbidden the economical use of buttons of that material, in favor of the manufacturer of buttons of other materials!

A just security to property is not afforded by that government, under which unequal taxes oppress one species of property and reward another species: where arbitrary taxes invade the domestic sanctuaries of the rich, and excessive taxes grind the faces of the poor; where the keenness and competitions of want are deemed an insufficient spur to labor, and taxes are again applied, by an unfeeling policy, as another spur; in violation of that sacred property, which Heaven, in decreeing man to earn his bread by the sweat of his brow, kindly reserved to him, in the small repose that could be spared from the supply of his necessities.

If there be a government then which prides itself in maintaining the inviolability of property; which provides that none shall be taken directly even for public use without indemnification to the owner, and yet directly violates the property which individuals have in their opinions, their religion, their persons, and their faculties; nay more, which indirectly violates their property, in their actual possessions, in the labor that acquires their daily subsistence, and in the hallowed remnant of time which ought to relieve their fatigues and soothe their cares, the influence [inference?] will have been anticipated, that such a government is not a pattern for the United States.

If the United States mean to obtain or deserve the full praise due to wise and just governments, they will equally respect the rights of property, and the property in rights: they will rival the government that most sacredly guards the former; and by repelling its example in violating the latter, will make themselves a pattern to that and all other governments.

Comet is Coming -- New Jersey by Nemacolin in LettersToTheEditor

OK

The COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic has become the menacing catalyst for panic, hysteria, confusion and uncertainty.

It has become readily apparent that our national infrastructure is incapable of handling a national health crisis. The economy has suffered. The retail pipeline is strained. Our medical capabilities are stressed to the point of near collapse.

During these troubling times, there are those who look to the stars for answers and guidance.

The Atlas Comet may be become visible to the naked eye in May. The comet is designated C/2019 Y4. If you use a bit of imagination, the comet’s designation comes close to reading COVID-19. I can just see “cult mania” exploding over this bizarre “coincidence.”

Comet Hale-Bob gave us the Heaven’s Gate tragedy. Given the current circumstances, the confusion and uncertainty generated by this virus, God only knows what tragic episode C/2019 Y4 (Atlas) would bring us.

Maybe something to ponder.

Is the US helping any other nation?

The flat-deck casualty receiving ship RFA Argus has set sail for the Caribbean to support the British Overseas Territories during the upcoming hurricane season and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Argus is a converted container ship fitted with an aviation deck and a 70-bed hospital facility. As she is an armed fleet auxiliary she is not formally classified as a hospital ship, but she has extensive medical capabilities, including ICU beds and medical imaging equipment. She has previous experience with infectious disease response, as she was deployed to Sierra Leone in 2014 to provide aid during an ebola outbreak.

RFA Argus’ current deployment to the Caribbean had been scheduled for the hurricane season, but she will now be able to play a part in ensuring the UK government can support its overseas territories during the pandemic.

“The Armed Forces are taking decisive and coordinated action both at home and overseas to respond to the Covid-19 outbreak. The Royal Navy and Royal Fleet Auxiliary have worked hard to ensure that RFA Argus is ready for the hurricane season in the Caribbean and now also able to support the UK’s Overseas Territories during the pandemic," said Minister of State for Defence Jeremy Quinn. “The deployment of this ship is just one way the UK Government is supporting communities at home and overseas as together we face the biggest public health emergency in a generation.”

Dolly Parton is donating $1 million for coronavirus research efforts by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

She is a wonderful person. One of the best.

Dolly Parton has announced plans to donate $1 million to Vanderbilt University's COVID-19 research efforts.

"My longtime friend Dr. Naji Abumrad, who's been involved in research at Vanderbilt for many years, informed me that they were making some exciting advancements towards research of the coronavirus for a cure. I am making a donation of $1 million to Vanderbilt towards that research and to encourage people that can afford it to make donations," she wrote in an Instagram post.

Parton and Abumrad have been friends since 2014, when he treated her after a minor car accident.

The years-long friendship between the two was explored in the podcast Dolly Parton's America, hosted by public radio veteran Jad Abumrad.

"At some point, Jad realized that there was someone calling on his father's phone and their name was an interesting pseudonym. He asked his dad about it and he says, 'Oh, it's Dolly. I just help out when she needs some advice,'" Dolly Parton's America producer Shima Oliaee said in an interview with Pocket Casts. "He's a good friend that advises her when she has a question. So that was the first step."

Doctor Warns of Bnei Brak 'Catastrophe', Army Begins To Evacuate Patients - Israel by Nemacolin in news

An insular community that does not trust secular authorities. Fits the Narrative; Enjoy.

A doctor who was transferred to working on the Bnei Brak coronavirus epidemic spoke to the Makor Rishon newspaper and said that “a catastrophe is developing in the city due to lack of cooperation from patients, intentional misleading and insulting remarks. We spend hours and hours explaining in an attempt to curb a virus which seems to have spiraled out of control, but despite this doctors see people ignoring or intentionally causing harm.

“The compliance level of residents is low. Many patients who are called and told they are positive were out in the street and not quarantined as required by law and others intentionally close their phones so they will not know the results of the tests they underwent.

“Some of the patients have recovered somewhat but are still positive and could infect others. However they deem themselves healthy and refuse to evacuate to isolation or maintain proper isolation in their homes, which is almost impossible in these neighborhoods. Those that do agree to evacuate to a hotel come with unreasonable demands and don’t seem to understand that this is no vacation. They wear down doctors with irritating requests regarding food, choice of place etc. They ask for esoteric Kashrus, demand to be in a hotel with friends or try to organize evacuation for their entire family.”

The doctor added that there was not enough enforcement from authorities and not enough internalization of the danger to old and sick people. Whoever feels good thinks that they have won.”

I disagree with this closure, but nobody asked me.

Grupo Modelo, the brewer of Corona beer, will temporarily halt production and marketing operations in Mexico to comply with a coronavirus health emergency declared by the government.

Grupo Modelo, a subsidiary of Belgium-based AB InBev, said late Thursday it will stop production of its popular Corona brand and other beers beginning Sunday and is already in the process of scaling down operations to a minimal level.

The brewer operates eight plants in Mexico producing 46 national brands. it said it considers itself part of Mexico's agricultural sector, which has been deemed an essential service during the emergency. Brewers are considered non-essential.

"The government recognizes agro-industry as an essential activity, with beer being one of the most important components of this industry and the main agro-industrial export product," Grupo Modelo said. "More than 15,000 families benefit from the sowing of 150,000 hectares a year of malted barley."

The Bosses Never Change.

An internal Amazon memo proposed a smear campaign against the employee leading coronavirus protests over conditions at the retail giant’s Staten Island warehouse, according to a report

The company’s general counsel David Zapolsky, in notes taken at a meeting from a daily update with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos about COVID-19, discussed a plan to single out fired worker Christian Smalls as “not smart or articulate” — and to raise questions about his behavior.

“We should spend the first part of our response strongly laying out the case for why the organizer’s conduct was immoral, unacceptable, and arguably illegal, in detail, and only then follow with our usual talking points about worker safety," wrote Zapolsky in comments leaked to the website Vice.com.

Zapolsky issued an immediate mea culpa to Vice, but the African-American ex-employee wanted no part of it.

“They’re digging their own grave,” Smalls told the Daily News. “It’s borderline racist. These people are disgusting. They should be ashamed of themselves. It’s like a vendetta against me ... For what? For doing the right thing?”

The leaked notes also recounted a discussion among Amazon executives about using Smalls to discredit the wider labor movement at the company. Staten Island workers at the JFK8 warehouse began efforts to unionize two years ago.

NY funeral homes struggle as virus deaths surge by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

An interesting story.

Pat Marmo walked among 20 or so deceased in the basement of his Brooklyn funeral home, his protective mask pulled down so his pleas could be heard.

“Every person there, they’re not a body,” he said. “They’re a father, they’re a mother, they’re a grandmother. They’re not bodies. They’re people.”

Like many funeral homes in New York and around the globe, Marmo’s business is in crisis as he tries to meet surging demand amid the coronavirus pandemic that has killed around 1,400 people in New York City alone, according to a tally from Johns Hopkins University. His two cell phones and the office office line are ringing constantly. He’s apologizing to families at the start of every conversation for being unusually terse, and begging them to insist hospitals hold their dead loved ones as long as possible.

His company is equipped to handle 40 to 60 cases at a time, no problem. On Thursday morning, it was taking care of 185.

“This is a state of emergency,” he said. “We need help.”

FDNY EMS ordered not to transport cardiac arrest patients that can’t be resuscitated in field by Nemacolin in news

This is a big change. No need to waste Hospital capacity on the Dead.

FDNY EMS personnel have been ordered to not transport cardiac arrest patients if they cannot be resuscitated in the field.

The order was made in a letter Tuesday by the Regional Emergency Medical Services Council of New York, which oversees FDNY EMS, to preserve hospital and ambulance resources amidst the COVID-19 crisis, according to the New York Post. Officials said the order is binding and effective immediately.

EMS providers will be instructed to begin compressions and artificial ventilation immediately when the patient is determined not to have a pulse, according to the letter obtained by the Post. However, if the patient cannot be revived on the scene, providers are ordered to stop CPR and declare the patient dead, at which point their body will be turned over to the NYPD.

The order applies to all adult non-traumatic or blunt traumatic cardiac arrests, according to the letter, but patients can be transported is there is a return of spontaneous circulation, a direct order from a medical control physician or imminent physical danger to the provider on the scene.

Amazon apologizes for Hitler book disguised as dog-training manual --UK by Nemacolin in news

Oops.

Amazon on Wednesday apologized to a British customer who called on the online retail giant to “immediately” remove from sale a book disguised as a puppy-training manual that in fact contains a full reprint of a 1930s Nazi propaganda book eulogizing Adolf Hitler’s achievements, ideology and work.

“We apologize to the customer for this issue, which was caused by a one-off printing issue with a supplier. Our supplier has confirmed that steps have been taken to ensure it doesn’t happen again,” Amazon said in a statement.

Lorraine Phipps purchased on Amazon Puppy Training by Jenna Jimenez on March 2 and was shocked to find instead, printed inside the book, Adolf Hitler, 1931-1935: Pictures From the Life of the Führer, originally published in 1936 with a foreword by leading Nazi party figure Hermann Göring. It contains 203 photographs and has accompanying text authored by some of the highest-ranking Third Reich officials, including propaganda chiefs Joseph Goebbels and Otto Dietrich.

“When my husband and I went to read it, despite the cover being as expected, it was actually a reprinting of a 1936 pro-Nazi propaganda book,” she said.

Study doubles Italian province's virus deaths by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

It all depends on how you count 'em.

A new study quantifying the hidden toll from coronavirus in the province of Bergamo, at the epicenter of Italy’s epidemic, has found that the number of deaths linked to the virus is double the official tally.

The study by the daily L’Eco di Bergamo with the InTwig data analysis agency puts the number of virus deaths last month at 4,500, compared with the official toll of 2,060, in the province of 1.1 million people.

Mayors have warned that the official numbers fail to take into account the many people dying at home or in rest homes who have never been tested for the virus. Under current policies, only those who arrive at hospitals manifesting strong symptoms are tested.

Lombardy accounts for 40% of Italy’s cases and more than half of its deaths, with Bergamo the hardest-hit province in the heavily populated industrial northern region.

Italy, which as recorded the most deaths of any nation, has extended a strict nationwide lockdown, including a shutdown of at least 60% of heavy industry, until April 13. But authorities caution that any return to normal movement will be a slow process.

This was in the 31 March Washington Times. On that day, this virus killed 912 Americans.


I sympathize with those who have gotten sick from the coronavirus or even the normal flu that happens every year. That said, some of the precautions being mandated are tantamount to yelling “Fire!” in a crowded theater — when there is no fire.

I believe two things have been exposed by the pandemonium caused by the coronavirus. The situation reminds me of all the warnings put out for a hurricane that either doesn’t hit or is not as damaging as was forecast. This, and situations like it, lead people to not take future warnings seriously. Second, everything that has been done, including shutdowns, cancellations and postponements, has shown what ringing a media-driven, government-supported alarm can lead the masses to do. To me, this is scarier than the virus. Just think what a media/government collusion could lead to. What could government use as a reason to curtail or disrupt all of society?

Those who say the government would never be able to suspend the U.S. Constitution or our freedoms are wrong. This is exactly what has been happening. Just ask those confined to cruise ships and quarantine facilities in the name of prevention, or those whose vacations were ended or cancelled. Wake up; we are only one alarm from a complete change of society.

Swedish virus coffins get special mark by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Let's Blame Immigrants!

The Swedish association of funeral directors has introduced a special marking for coffins containing the remains of people who have died due to the coronavirus.

Ulf Lerneus, who heads the association, said on Monday the symbol shows three drops signifying the infectious droplets that spread the virus, Stockholm daily Aftonbladet reported.

"It should alert those who are going to transport the coffin from the mortuary that there is potential infection risk if it is opened," he was quoted as saying.

The association represents about 430 funeral directors across the country.

The number of coronavirus disease cases in Sweden rose to about 4000 on Monday, while 146 have died, the Public Health Agency reported.

The Swedish association of funeral directors last week secured an agreement with the main local newspapers allowing next of kin to - free of charge - publish revised funeral notices, for instance if a funeral has been postponed or cancelled in line with new limits on public gatherings.

Sweden as of Sunday limited gatherings to 50 people, which also applies to funerals.

Some people have opted to livestream the funeral ceremony to limit the number of people in attendance, and to shield the elderly and other risk groups from possible infection.

A person who has died due to COVID-19 cannot be viewed, and according to Swedish legislation adopted in 2012, a funeral must take place within a month, with few exceptions.

Four dead in ferocious three-alarm Bronx blaze that gutted top floor of apartment building by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Horrible news, it might have been a space heater.


A raging fire gutted the top floor of a six-story Bronx apartment building on Tuesday night, killing four women and injuring another victim, officials said.

The blaze started in a sixth-floor apartment on Grand Concourse near E. Mount Eden Ave. in Mount Eden, with smoke pouring into two neighboring apartments, officials said Tuesday night.

The thick smoke killed two women in one neighboring apartment, and two more in another, police said. Witnesses said firefighters pulled all four women from the building, but all were unconscious.

One witness watched as medics frantically tried to revive one woman.

"They were pumping the chest of the woman. She wasn’t responding. She didn’t look good,” said one witness, who didn’t give his name.

One of the victims, Maribell Turner, 70, was a nurse practitioner, her grieving sister told the Daily News.
