Proof that masks work against coronavirus

Compiling the knowledge I’ve acquired so far: Yes, N95 masks DO minimise the chance of getting the virus. Taiwan had planned and got itself fully prepared even as the virus had barely started. They were on the front foot and started mass production. By end February they were producing 4 million masks per day. Now […]

National parks closing for COVID-19

To combat the spread of coronavirus and encourage social distancing, many national parks are closing to the public or modifying their operations, including Yellowstone and Grand Teton. Although, thanks to their sizes, parks might seem somewhat safer than other public gathering places, they attract large numbers of visitors, which poses a health risk.

Wales national forest project

Wales is embarking on an ambitious ecological program to create a large national forest, extending across the entire country. The initiative, led by First Minister Mark Drakeford, would connect existing protected woodland with large-scale tree-planting projects, with the aim of restoring biodiversity loss, fighting climate change, and protecting the local community.

Ask me Anything — the Dolly Parton Edition

I love music It’s hard for me to convey precisely how much I enjoy music. I’d rather go without food for a few days than go without music for a day. Fortunately for me, that would never have to happen. I have music on my phone, my computer, laptop — and of course on Youtube. … Continue reading "Ask me Anything — the Dolly Parton Edition"

Hotel Industry Crisis: 8 Do’s and Don’ts for Distressed Hotels | By Jim Butler & Guy Maisnik

As the COVID-19 crisis grows in the US and elsewhere outside China, hotels and restaurants are among the businesses hardest hit. In select markets like Seattle and San Francisco, hotels are reporting single digit occupancies and crushed ADRs. Many hotels do not have the cash flow to keep their doors open. The major hotel companies are talking of furloughs for tens of thousands of hotel employees and many properties are looking at closure or skeleton team maintenance operations.

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...

Asian grocery stores during COVID-19

In the United States , we’re used to being able to get pretty much whatever we want, whenever we want it. Think about the last time your WiFi went out when you were trying to cue up Netflix, and you’ll know exactly what I mean. Which is why this past week, in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, was especially unnerving for a lot of people, who went to the store to pick up a few items they can usually find on-demand and found literally none of what they were looking for. Not just toilet paper...

Free online learning resources

Homeschooling is sweeping the planet as laws mandate that ever more people stay home during widespread shelter-in-place orders. But there isn’t much time for shock, as parents and children must quickly adapt to new routines. The good news is that, particularly during an isolating pandemic, screens are our friends. Don’t feel pressured to remain tried and true to the regimented school books and worksheets dished out to you. Get creative and use every resource available. Many experienced homesc...

Sex during coronavirus pandemic

Governments across the world have told us we should minimize contact with others to reduce the spread of COVID-19. It’s pretty much impossible to practice ‘social distancing’ with those we share beds with, so where does sex feature in all of this? According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus is mainly transmitted from person-to-person through respiratory droplets, which are produced when someone sneezes or coughs. It’s also possible to catch the virus by touching ...

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...
