The Philippines and the struggle to maintain physical distance in lockdown – in pictures

The Philippines has taken drastic measures to combat the spread of Covid-19. The entire country is under strict quarantine and the army is on the streets to monitor compliance. According to official figures, there are 462 positive cases and 33 dead in the Philippines, but it is thought that thousands of cases remain undetected due to lack of resources in a country where millions of people have no access to health care.

Facebook's ads business is being hurt by coronavirus — even though the lockdown has caused unprecedented usage

Usage of Facebook has skyrocketed due to coronavirus lockdowns. But its ad business isn't getting boosted, as much of the activity is on unmonetized services, while advertisers are pulling back due to the pandemic. On Tuesday, the company published a blog post detailing how the coronavirus outbreak is affecting the business. Messaging and group video-chats are seeing particular spikes in usage. Usage of Facebook is booming. But its ads business isn't seeing the benefit. The Silicon Valley-bas...

A 95-year-old Japanese lady enjoying a stroll

In the current climate, a quiet stroll along the nearby canal seemed like a good idea. A decision that in the end turned out to be doubly good, as along with a nice walk, I also had the pleasure of bumping into the lovely old lady below. We only had a brief chat. Basically just the time it took to take a couple of frames from a suitably safe distance. But having the chance to meet somebody who has experienced the destruction — then recovery — of their country, and indeed the wider world from war...

Visitors

My Daughter in Law and Granddaughter are visiting us from Texas (this was before we all went into isolation. They were told to do self isolation when they returned to the States.) The first thing we did was walk from our place to the Eiffel Tower. A view with the Eiffel Tower behind the carousel. The Seine is running high as you can see. The ducks are in an area you can usually walk on and no boats are running as they can’t get under the bridge. We showed them the Statue of Li...

How USC football is continuing some workouts amid coronavirus quarantine

This wasn’t exactly the spring that USC football had in mind. The Trojans had just one spring practice, the beginning of implementing a new defense and a new physicality, before concerns about the spread of COVID-19 led to USC and the Pac-12 to suspend all team activities, including football practices, as part of social distancing. Now, most of the team has gone home for spring and is not allowed back on USC’s campus. So the Trojans have had to get creative with how they work out in quarantine. ...
