    Addiction among older adults

    At this point with all my years I've known or seen too many addicts up in age. One of the things they had in common is that most had prior substance abuse issues and/or showed signs earlier in life that addicted or addictive would be in their future. Until the addict wants to get sober for...

    Alabama students throwing 'COVID parties' to see who gets infected: Officials

    As long as they are hanging around other students and not friends and family who cares. I don't want to see these muts running to an ER the second they get a sniffle or crying online it was stupid help me blah blah. Well see how 'strong' this group is.

    Has anyone ever tried to censor what you were saying?

    Many are like a politicians and celebrity pr teams always trying to control the narrative. That's why some always talk fast and loud. Their fear of losing control of it motivates them to speak up not necessarily in a courteous fashion. Also if a narcissists I was reading always try to control...

    Gilead prices COVID-19 drug candidate remdesivir at $2,340 per patient

    That's exactly what will happen. Or they'll price gouge. Many of those other countries should've worked to procure those drugs as hard as the US did. But many can't even a attempt such a feat. Every country should be helping others without the economic or logistical capability to acquire these...

    Despite All Precautions At Restaurants....

    Restaurants and other businesses need to set up somekind of exhaust system. Also many will probably wind up converting much or more of their floor space to out door dinning with large windows that can opened or making a porch environment.

    Cocaine prices rising. Coca leaf prices dropping

    Cocaine prices rising because of fewer drugs being smuggled into the US. That includes a stockpile of cash and drugs waiting at the US border waiting to go their separate ways. Coca farmers in South America has seen a 73% drop in prices. As usual the little guy gets the short end while the rich...

    NYC cuts police budget by 1 billion dollars

    One of the issues with numerous government jobs at the local and state level in particular is that many are handed out/traded like favors in many a locale. Around here it was known if you wanted to be so much as a sanitation worker or secretary one had to have a politician as a reference written...

    NYC cuts police budget by 1 billion dollars

    If these "zones" are any indication they'll be begging for any police department to come to their town. I think a lot of towns will start contracting out their policing duties to other towns, the county or state to wash their hands of the liabilities. In the end some organization will be...

    Two Friends in Texas Were Tested for Coronavirus. One Bill Was $199. The Other? $6,408.

    This is why there should be somekind of menu pricing. How anyone get a true cost on anything if everyone is charged a different price. That actual provider can charge what ever price it wants but it shouldn't very customer to customer. If they want to offer a cash price and insurance price they...

    More than 200 people are advised to quarantine after possible Covid-19 exposure at gym

    1 person tests positive so 200 are supposed to alter their lives for 2 weeks. That will go over well. Planet Fitness says they going to reclean but I doubt surface transmission will be the issue. Gyms should be required to vent the air outside ie an exhaust system. I've heard stories of gyms...

    Gilead prices COVID-19 drug candidate remdesivir at $2,340 per patient

    I thought I heard someone say if you are put on it you already in deep poop probably on a ventilator in an icu so a few extra grand probably won't be the final blow to one's budget if it's still there. But yes why the resistance to the hydroxy, antibiotic and zinc cocktails. One has to wonder...

    Europe Not Opening Borders to the U.S. because of Coronavirus

    The big problem with overseas travel isn't the individual is that those same individuals have to travel in a confined space with others who might be contaminated to get there? The town they came from might be fine but not all on those flights or cruises are healthy. It's that final leg of the...

    Wonder what Baseball season will be like?

    It would be a sham season. Millionaires are skipping a years pay and they have health concerns. On one hand I don't want to hear millionaires cry about safety concerns when retail employees or any essential worker has been risking their health for a lot less for months on end. That being said...
