The best LGBTQ online entertainment

Before social distancing became the new normal, April was chock-full of major LGBTQ events, and while the coronavirus has caused massive cancellations (RIP Black Party 2020!), queer community leaders aren’t letting COVID-19 get in the way of their spring flings. LGBTQ outlets around the world have created virtual community centers, concert halls, and dance clubs to combat the isolation caused by the pandemic, and the options for connecting seem endless. The only problem? With a wealth of no...

Courtroom access: High-profile cases, live audio and public interest

Long lines were a hallmark of high-profile oral arguments at the Supreme Court this term, in cases involving issues ranging from abortion to gun rights to employment protections for LGBT employees. Because the Supreme Court does not normally release the audio of its oral arguments until the end of the week, attending the oral argument in person is the only way to hear the justices and lawyers in action in real time. On March 31, the Supreme Court was scheduled to hear two oral arguments in a...

When first case of coronavirus appeared in NYC — a woman who'd flown in from Iran (via Qatar) — Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio "promised that health investigators would track down every person on the woman’s flight. But no one did."

Writes J. David Goodman in "How Delays and Unheeded Warnings Hindered New York’s Virus Fight/The federal response was chaotic. Even so, the state’s and city’s own initial efforts failed to keep pace with the outbreak, The Times found" (NYT).A day later, a lawyer from New Rochelle, a New York City suburb, tested positive for the virus — an alarming sign because he had not traveled to any affected country, suggesting community spread was already taking place.Although city investigators had traced ...

80% of NYC's coronavirus patients who are put on ventilators ultimately die, and some doctors are trying to stop using them

Some doctors are trying to reduce their reliance on ventilators for some coronavirus patients as the death rate for patients using the machines is abnormally high. New York officials say 80% of coronavirus patients who used ventilators in the city have died, the Associated Press reported. Unusually high death rates have also been recorded elsewhere in the world. Ventilators are typically only used for the worst-affected patients and there are no drugs to help treat coronavirus, so this could e...

Mehr Pickel trotz Make-up-Pause: Diese Tipps helfen bei unreiner Haut

In der Zeit des Social Distancings gibt es viele Dinge, die wir vermissen. Brunch mit Freund*innen zum Beispiel oder das Feierabendbier mit den Kolleg*innen. Eine Sache vermissen dagegen wahrscheinlich nur wenige: Den morgendlichen Stress, wenn man den Wecker mal wieder nicht gehört hat und dann innerhalb von 15 Minuten duschen, sich anziehen und sich schminken muss. Da du jetzt aber entweder das Glück hast, von zuhause aus arbeiten zu können oder aber gar nicht arbeitest, kannst du dir fr...

San Fernando Valley mother turned 110 and coronavirus couldn’t stop family from celebrating

“I love you, too.”  The words came from the then 109-year-old lips of Ruth Mendelson as she said goodbye to her son, Earl, about three weeks ago in her room at The Village at Sherman Oaks — a senior living community. Concern was swirling about the coronavirus, and its devastating effect on seniors. But for a determined Earl Bender, he was going to see his mother. He was going up there. It was the last time Bender, 78, would be physically up close to her in the same room, before physical distanci...

Some Doctors Fear Ventilators Could Be Harming Certain Patients

NEW YORK (AP) — As health officials around the world push to get more ventilators to treat coronavirus patients, some doctors are moving away from using the breathing machines when they can. The reason: Some hospitals have reported unusually high death rates for coronavirus patients on ventilators, and some doctors worry that the machines could be harming certain patients. The evolving treatments highlight the fact that doctors are still learning the best way to manage a virus that emerged on...

Knotel is scrambling to pay millions in bills that started stacking up before the coronavirus hit, and it's late on payments to some of New York's biggest brokerages

Knotel has stopped paying rent on some of its huge New York City portfolio of office space and cut off other payments to key partners such as CBRE and Cushman & Wakefield, sources told Business Insider.

The city will survive coronavirus

In a recent essay, New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman asked “Can City Life Survive Coronavirus?” It seems an apt question in this extraordinary time of mandated retreat from public life.  City streets and spaces normally teeming with people are nearly deserted now, evoking scenes from a Terry Gilliam film.  In an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 we have shut down the sites where the rituals of daily urban life unfold, “third places” like cafes and bars and community center...

The Fitness Guru? I went from fat to that. You can too. No excuses. Make the decision.  CHAPTER 6 – PART 1  THE FITNESS GURU? Losing a human being can be an exhilarating experience.

You Should Be Wearing a Face Mask

Have you been wearing a face mask when going out in public recently? There’s been a lot of debate recently about whether they are effective in keeping people safe from COVID-19 infection, and it’s been really challenging to find good information. After reading several things over the past few days, I have concluded that wearing a mask in public is a helpful step I can take to help keep myself and others safe, with the important caveat that healthcare workers need access to masks before the res...

‘Nothing Works’: Hospitals Race To Train More Docs To Operate Ventilators

With COVID-19, it’s one step forward, two steps back. That’s what doctors battling the devastating viral lung infection on its frontlines are saying, as hospitals face shortages not only in ventilators to keep patients alive, but in doctors to operate them. The problem is particularly acute in the hotspot of New York City, which is projected to run out of ventilators this week. One doctor at a Manhattan hospital told TPM that he had been put on ventilator duty, despite being trained — and wor...

Cuomo Suggests ‘Possible Flattening of the Curve’ in New York

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was cautiously optimistic at his Monday briefing, stating the number of coronavirus-related deaths has been “effectively flat” for the past two days, indicating a “possible flattening of the curve” in the Empire State.“While none of this is good news, the possible flattening of the curve is better than the increases that we have seen,” Cuomo said at a press conference in Albany. “The big question we are looking at now is, what is the curve?

Coronavirus: Paid sick days save all of our lives

Adam Schlesinger and his Fountains of Wayne co-writer Chris Collingwood created better, sadder, funnier songs about the angst of lonely women amid the awful blandness of office culture than anyone in American pop music. Their only contemporary rivals at making short-story like workplace scenes within the tiny confines of a tune are the English band Squeeze. For those who are less than fan-boys, the Schlesinger songs you know are the MTV hit “Stacy’s Mom,” who definitely had it going on, and the ...
