Dr. Anthony Fauci Says Staying Closed For Too Long Could Cause 'Irreparable Damage'

An anonymous reader quotes a report from CNBC: Stay-at-home orders intended to curb the spread of the coronavirus could end up causing "irreparable damage" if imposed for too long, White House health advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNBC on Friday.

California To Decide If Labor Law Applies To App Drivers

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A ballot initiative backed by business giants Uber, Lyft and DoorDash is now set to go before California voters in November, a multimillion-dollar shot aimed at excluding the companies from a law that would make them give more benefits and wage protections to their drivers. California approved the labor law last year, the strictest in the country around when employers can classify workers as independent contractors. It’s aimed at pushing businesses to put more freelance...

Even ‘Contagion’ Couldn’t Prepare Steven Soderbergh for How “Deeply Irrational” Everyone is Acting During the Pandemic

Directing Contagion may have prepared Steven Soderbergh for a pandemic, but not for the deeply stupid human behavior that people have had in response to a pandemic. The filmmaker’s acclaimed 2011 thriller was ahead of the curve — showing the breakdown of society and difficulties of curbing the spread of a deadly virus long before coronavirus (COVID-19) even existed. Contagion was a famously realistic take on the pandemic movie, with Soderbergh employing a team of researchers and consultants to ...

Wonder why Donald Trump is 6 months late on his annual physical?

It's curious, isn't it. It's now 6 months after impeached President Donald Trump said he was starting his 2020 physical.

Trump still hasn't taken his annual physical and it's starting to get weird

President Trump's aversion to taking his annual physical is starting to get … a little weird. It has now been six months since the president claims to have "started" his routine physical at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, NBC News reports, with Trump saying in early March that he is simply "too busy" to do the second part. But even his process is mysterious, since physicals aren't typically conducted in multiple stages over the course of several months.There is plenty of re...

After Trump’s Declaration, Gov. Newsom Says He’s ‘Days Away’ From Guidelines On Reopening Churches

YOUNTVILLE (CBS13/AP) – President Donald Trump’s declaration that religious services should be “essential” comes at a precarious point in the national balancing act that pits the call of worship against the risk of coronavirus.

The Journey Back to Reopening Your Business During the Pandemic

During COVID-19’s spread, the White House and public health officials urged people to stay home to flatten the curve.
