Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread Am I the only one?

It seems to me that most people have lost patients in watching this impeachment.

I won't be surprised if the News Network ratings won't be some wow numbers. 

How long can you sit and watch these managers repeat the same stuff over and over again.

At least if they would have had different rules, like 1 hour rebuttal times continuously, then maybe it would be interesting, but to see Schiff just repeating the same stuff is highly boring.

I am not talking a R or D. I would say the same thing when the Trump team will have their 3 days. I mean, this is not some kind of complicated case where you need hours and hours of deliberations.

Its either you think its a problem what he did or not.

Re: US Politics/2016 Election Pick Your Poison Master Thread I loved how this guy on Fox put it down. "The same people who want medicaid for all and want to control 73 trillion dollars to fund it, can't figure out how to count 200k votes with hundreds of millions of dollars invested in it in a timely fashion"  'Here you have the green deal in action.."

Re: Cell Phones in Israel FYI. Whoever uses travel pass, be aware that cellcom works very bad. My first day the service was crazy bad it was set that I should let Verizon choose the best network. After a day I tried finding manually a different network and pelephone came up. I right away switched and everything is working great. So make sure to manually select pelephone.

Re: Famous People With Coronavirus
Incubation period doesn't mean he can't get tested accurately. It just means that someone with the virus might not show symptoms for up to 14 days (and for 1% of people, even longer than 14 days).
I don't believe so. Why do people isolate for 14 days? They can just take the test and if they are neg go on with life. I believe the test may not pick up within 14 days. But it may still be in development...

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread People still don't get it. I was just told that at the wedding which I attended yesterday there was a guy who tested positive today.

What the hell is wrong with people?  This guy was not feeling well and went Motzei Shabbos to get tested. Why go to a wedding and kis and hug others? (yes, I watched him doing that)

Re: Is there any good news in the fight against COVID-19?
Not what he said.
He said from severe to moderate cases. Whatever that means. It's obviously not a perfect miracle with 100% success rate. Look at eli beer. Thursday he was saying he started the drug and is doing better and he got worse and is on  a respirator now

March 22, 2020, 02:39:59 AM
Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread Do they have a test yet to see if you are immuned?

Since most people don't get tested they won't know if they had it and if they are immuned.

Watch the R senators press conference from 3 hours ago. The way it is right now people will have to be stupid to work. And our economy will go to hell. Why the hell do Ds have to play politics with this? They have time to do it when Bernie becomes POTUS.

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread In NYC the problem is not that they can't get tests. It's that our beloved mayor has adopted the Russian Method. Don't test, don't know. The mayor is NOT ALLOWING local doctors to order tests. Heard directly from 2 local doctors.

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread
yes but it’s not your choice to not stay home when you might have it yourself and give it to others
Whoever doesn't want to get it should stay home. The same way you can say to stay home to save countless lives every day from car accidents, construction accidents etx

Re: Delta to tlv opening May 8
Says more about our education system than anything else.

But for once instead of getting 100 comments where I need to say "read the post," 100 TAs got those comments and had a day in my life. And they've been harassing me ever since then.

Nunu. Not going to apologize for having readers that can't read.
While being part of the 100 travel agents getting these crazy panicking calls I do believe that you did a perfect job. Now that UA continued operations people are busy how wrong you were. However, it makes zero sense for UA to continue this flight. I'm sure they have some reason why they are continuing (maybe Israeli government paying something or some other behind the curtain reason) but when everyone saw what was happening and UA zeroing out inventory, of course you gotta assume that ua will cancel and warn people that they gotta pack up and fly home or else they may stay stuck.

So now that we got lucky and ua is continuing to fly literally empty planes it makes zero sense to say that you made us panic for no reason. Just my 2c

Re: Calculating The Actual Fatality Rate
This is definitely some availability bias. A more systematic way of doing this (though also not scientifically sound), would be to go through your shul membership list and see if you can count 50%. You cant count 50, assume you have 100 in the population, and come up with a prevalence.

Or at the very least - take a random sample of people in your shul list, and see who had it within that sample. In stats, you can only determine prevalence when starting with a cohort not with a case.
From my shull? 75% had it. I'm not joking. And it was closed the whole time. There is really no point in arguing about this.

You can say that this is just Boro Park and Williamsburg. I have no idea. But whoever lives here knows this to be true.

Re: SBA PPP and EIDL Small Business Loans (some money is forgivable)
Just to understand, everyone here who says they got EIDL just got a deposit to their account after applying, with no personal/specific contact with/from the SBA since applying?

What this basically means is that I should hope for funds to suddenly show up? Nice.
Yeah. But it seems that if you are a business owner with no employees and when they asked for number of employees you put 0, then you will get 0. Wish there would be a way to update the app and put 1 employee.

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread
Kool-Aid FOX is trying to spin and defend this idea.
Can you point me as to where he said that people should do XYZ?

Let's say that he was not sarcastic, where do you see him instructing? I am seeing him posing a question and saying that he is not a Dr and saying they should look into it.

He even goes on to say later that the fake news will put out headlines "TRUMP SAID TO DO XYZ" and he said very clearly that he is not a Dr and not suggesting anything.

Re: COVID-19 (Wuhan Novel Coronavirus) Pandemic Master Thread Something is not right... As much as we are saying that we don't know yet, we probably know even less....

I had strong covid symptoms for about a week. I was exposed to my wife during that week. I mean, really really exposed... She had some back pain for 2 days a week after that but was never tested for covid. I was like, there is no way in the world she did not get it.

Today her antibody test came back. She is negative. She never had it. Are there certain people who due to their blood type or something else, won't get it?

Where they are now? And now we have way more than we had by Kavanagh.

Re: Dropping Antibody Levels While Dr Ditchek is a very respected dr he has been talking too much....

I think it's unnecessary fear...

Its likely faulty testing. The testing keeps on being updated and we know that some tests are showing false negetives.

Most doctors believe that you will stay immuned for some time.

He just wants people to still wear masks and not make minyanim so he is spreading these videos. He should go back to do his job. Some of his videos / messages were absolutely nuts.

Re: Dropping Antibody Levels
Yeah, for sure, you know better than all the doctors who are out there on the front lines. Are you anti-vaxxer, too?
Huh? Better than all Doctors? Who's taking about all doctors? Ditchek is actually not saying here what all doctors are saying.

May 15, 2020, 12:50:44 AM
Re: Dropping Antibody Levels
He is saying what all the doctors that certain people with selective hearing hear. There is a very loud minority of doctors that are saying you can't trust antibodies etc.
Can you repeat what you just said in simple English please?

Re: EMT MASTER THREAD Catching up.

I'll be very blunt. I did not donate to Hatzolah.

While the rank and file are one of the best people in society, the people on top stink.

I know many great EMTs who offered crazy amounts of money to get in and were denied. Just because the people on top want to hold a power grip.

Why should I give them money when they have where to take it from but simply refuse for political reasons?

Same goes for Ezras Nashim.. Why spend so much time and effort to stop them.

Unfortunately the leadership stinks to high heaven.

Sorry for being the one to take off the soft gloves.

People should know the truth

Re: Stocks Cramer is a TV anchor. Of course he has some knowledge otherwise he wouldn't be anchoring that show.

Re: So How Was Your Shul This Week? I'll be the first to break the ice I guess...

In BP most shulls were open, packed with no social distancing what's so ever.

Corona is a thing of the past. Not a single new case in weeks... (the official new cases being released is probably people retesting)

Hospitalizations rate (which is the only accurate indicator) of suspected covid cases in New York City is about 20 a day.

 I passed by munkatch which was packed and a police car was in front of the shull doing nothing..

Re: Re: So How Was Your Shul This Week?
“Tatty, can you tell me a story?”

“Sure! My neighbor’s father locked himself in his house for 3 weeks before Purim. His kids and wife got “fed up”, so on Purim, he came to his son’s house for the seuda (staying a few feet away from everyone, of course). He died. Now my neighbor needs to keep his outdoor minyan going because there are too many chiyuvim in Shul and he needs to daven for the Amud. The end.”

*names and identifying details have been changed
This is precisely the stories people are fed up from hearing.

While the sad stories are beyond, the fact is that it's not Purim anymore. The fact is that there was a mere 20 hospitalizations in NYC yesterday on suspected covid cases.

I have a feeling that some people will be damaged from this forever. Soon there will be available surgery for masks implants.

On what basis is this stock worth so much? On what basis is the market cap 63bb?

To value zoom based on what's going on now doesn't make sense to me.

Re: Rayshard Brooks, another black man gunned down! What is this teaching black youth? That you can take away a taser from a law enforcement officer and get away with it?

People comparing this to Floyd's story are doing a disservice to this whole movement.

When you are being shot by a taser you can't move for a couple of seconds. Which means that the officer was at risk of having his gun taken away......

If you would do anything different at that situation, by all means please explain! Other than letting yourself being shot with the taser.

Re: COVID-19 Reinfection
He writes positive PCR, negative PCR, antibodies and donated plasma, now headache and positive PCR. Mild symptoms the 2nd time.
Can very well be false positive. I know people who were positive on pcr with no symptoms, retested the next day and were negetive. Same goes with antibodies, a lot of false positives.

He had a headache and tested positive. And felt better right after. Might very well be fake positive and by chance had a headache.

Im not doubting this whole reinfection thingy but I believe we are missing facts. We are going through a change of weather now which causes colds. People get a cold and they think it's reinfection. They confirm it via pcr which is possibly false.

My main problem with this reinfection thing is how come the NYT hasn't picked it up? They only found one guy in Nevada out of the who US.

Florida early results will lean Biden. Everyone expects that. Because they are counting EVs right away. Same for Georgia.

In PA it will be the other way around. First reporting election day vote which will be pro Trump. And will shift towards Biden as more early votes come in
