Trump Floats ‘Enforceable’ Quarantine On Entire New York State To Contain Coronavirus

President Donald Trump said on Saturday that he’s considering ordering a quarantine on New York as the number of COVID-19 cases continues to skyrocket in the state. “Some people would like to see New York quarantined because it’s a hot spot,” he told reporters during a press pool on the White House lawn. “New York, New Jersey, maybe one or two other places, certain parts of Connecticut quarantined. I’m thinking about that right now.” Trump said the potential quarantine would be a “short term”...

LPGA players face distinct stress from delays due to coronavirus

Alana Uriell tried to sneak onto a golf course the other day. The second-year LPGA Tour member ventured out onto Aviara Golf Club in Carlsbad, her home course, which this week was supposed to host the LPGA’s Kia Classic.

Crowds At Parks, Beaches And Trails Force Closures As COVID-19 Spreads

OAK PARK, Ill. (AP) — It was a sunny day, the first in about a week when temperatures had climbed past the 50-degree mark, and people in Chicago did what they always do on such a day: They flocked to the shores of Lake Michigan. Mayor Lori Lightfoot did not consider that the kind of postcard perfect scene that attracts visitors from around the world. She saw danger. She saw “packs” of people and worried about the possibility that the coronavirus that has killed more than 25,000 worldwide was spr...

Ransomware attacks are causing panic and chaos at overwhelmed hospitals struggling with COVID-19, and it may be about to get worse (LH)

Organizations from the World Health Organization to little clinics across America are being hit with malware that locks up their computer systems. As COVID-19 peaks, this could fuel public panic because hospitals may not be able to process patients' paperwork or provide test results.  New Hampshire Senator Maggie Hassan tells Business Insider that is an urgent concern and DHS admits it must do more to help local agencies.  Hospitals often have no good option in responding to attacks, as ransom...

Prison Guards And Inmates Are Pleading For Reforms To Combat Coronavirus

WASHINGTON (AP) — When a federal correction officer geared up for duty recently at a Florida prison complex, he added an N95 mask amid coronavirus fears. He has a sister who had an organ transplant and an elderly mother at home. But a supervisor ordered him to take it off and threatened disciplinary action if he refused. At other federal prisons, though, he would have been told to wear one. Rules on protective gear vary widely from prison to prison. And inmates say there is little guidance on wh...

Revisiting the Rangers’ Ryan McDonagh – J.T. Miller Trade

The New York Rangers’ mega-trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Feb. 26, 2018, wasn’t the first big move of their rebuilding project, which had been formally undertaken with a letter to fans from team management early that month. No, their first big deal had occurred the day before, when the Rangers sent forward Rick Nash to the Boston Bruins for three players and two draft picks. However, that trade was hardly surprising to the Blueshirts’ fan base, with Nash’s contract set to expire at the...

Home in a Bowl of Granola

Normally baking a batch of granola makes me think of home. This week thinking of home made me bake a batch of granola.  You ask how can granola have anything to do with “home”?   Where do you call home anyway? For me I have two homes. Home is here in France now. Home is back in the States then. Mentally there is room for both. The other day when it became apparent that we had to cancel our trip to visit with family in Virginia and Florida I consoled myself...

Garry Tan and Alexis Ohanian on how to survive these crazy days (and what to learn from them)

Garry Tan and Alexis Ohanian founded Initialized Capital roughly nine years ago and they’ve closed four funds since, including most recently in late 2018. That $225 million vehicle is roughly twice the size of their previous fund, but because of the coronavirus, the firm, and its portfolio companies — some of which include Opendoor, Instacart and Coinbase — could be facing a tougher road in 2020. Certainly, that’s true of nearly ever other venture firm and startup right now. To get a sense...

Who Should Star in the Inevitable ‘Tiger King’ Movie?

Netflix’s Tiger King is generating a ton of buzz lately, with viewers absolutely gobsmacked by the strange, wild, disturbing docuseries. The series takes us into the surprisingly lucrative (and altogether questionable) world of big cat collectors, focusing primarily on the eccentric Joe Exotic, a private zoo owner who was convicted of ordering a contract killing on an animal rights activist. But Joe is just our gateway into a whole world of unconventional, and in some cases downright loathsome,...
