    Coronavirus Cases Are Accelerating Across U.S.

    A friend just sent me this video, which I think others may appreciate here. It’s shows why masks work, and does so with various scientific experiments. If you’re at all concerned about masks, please watch it, and if appropriate send to your family and friends. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    In all fairness, this applies to most of the frequent posters here, including you. ETA: I note that you laughed at this post. Seems you can dish it out but don't like it when it bounces back, eh?

    Coronavirus Cases Are Accelerating Across U.S.

    I certainly respect that you wish to keep your thoughts to yourself, but if you won't participate then do us the courtesy of not criticizing others, either. That includes insulting us by declaring our posts are "man-splaining" when we are simply trying to help educate our fellow TUG members.

    Coronavirus Cases Are Accelerating Across U.S.

    In regards to interpretation of the numbers, could it be that we are (all) confused by what the numbers actually indicate? A friend told me about the Simpson's Paradox and how it may apply to C19 numbers, and sent me a post by a doctor which basically said (I'm paraphrasing the posts below): In...

    How do you define "strength"? :P There is some evidence to support that it has become more infectious. New, more infectious strain of COVID-19 now dominates global cases of virus: study https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-07-infectious-strain-covid-dominates-global.html

    Coronavirus Cases Are Accelerating Across U.S.

    No matter how you look at the numbers, more is not good. We likely had significantly more cases than were counted (as I and others postulated on TUG back in March). It seems silly to me to even discuss the question if there are more than we are counting...of course there are! 15 states broke...

    Coronavirus Cases Are Accelerating Across U.S.

    I appreciate that. I would suggest that part of the issue here is that when I (and others) post comments with links and quotes it's not uncommon for others to respond to the manner in which the post was made and not the facts. Like the one which prompted your comment. You were obviously upset...

    Coronavirus Cases Are Accelerating Across U.S.

    I was going to research Arizona, California, and Texas (with Florida these are the four hot spots right now, though I expect that to change) next but it seems this info isn't desired. So much for critical thinking on TUG! Moving on... I'll chime in if needed (ie. when I next see questionable...

    Coronavirus Cases Are Accelerating Across U.S.

    I read info from many sources, including local governments (I quoted one in my post earlier today). Sadly, local governments are often not the best source for info any longer since they are also interpreting data. In Florida’s case, they are also not classifying certain data so it’s even harder...

    Coronavirus Cases Are Accelerating Across U.S.

    I found the earlier misleading posts about state reopening plans disquieting. If those whom I had thought were well informed (based solely on their historical posts on TUG, as I only have met a few members over the years in person) are not, then it changes my perception of the value of TUG posts...

    So one year after the price increase...

    I find significant value in Amazon. I may not like what it's doing to small businesses, but I have yet to find an alternative acceptable solution. I am curious what my total order count will be by the end of this year. There's a reason their stock price is increasing. In addition to the...

    Glad to see you are no longer posting fake news. Ask yourself why the states reopened without meeting their own requirements. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    False. The majority of states started to follow the recommendations and then reopened before they met them. This info is everywhere... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    The majority of states did not follow their own minimum guidelines for reopening. We did not follow the recommendations, so don’t even pretend that we did! Your statement is simply laughable. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Schools reopening or not

    The safety of teachers and staff is absolutely one of the issues those involved are considering.

    Schools reopening or not

    Common ground is always good to discover. I'm sure we agree on many issues. Contentious TUG posts are naturally isolated to extreme situations with strong opinions.
