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...

Small Alcohol Distillers Step Up to Meet Hand Sanitizer Demand

With hand sanitizers going out of stock in stores and distribution centers, it is leaving many without during the coronavirus outbreak. Alcohol distillers are trying to fill the gap. This is in part due to the Tax and Trade Bureau giving the green light for alcohol beverage producers a special exemption to make hand sanitizer. Before the coronavirus outbreak, the production of sanitizer was minimal due to low demand. However, the demand for sanitizers has peaked exponentially because of the gro...

Q: Dear 100 Hour Board,Okay, let's see if I can explain this in a way that is coherent... I was having a friendly political debate with my dad last night. About Trump. I expressed that women and minorities do not feel represented by President Trump. That they do not feel empowered by him.

Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary contest, many Democrats have shifted their attention to a favorite quadrennial parlor game: the vice-presidential search.Biden has shown his hand in a big and unusual way for a front-runner, saying he would pick a woman as a running mate. That has opened the path for Democratic officials to start picking favorites -- from a socially safe distance.In d...

It's over for Bernie Sanders

Whether or not Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders suspends his campaign for president in the coming days, he is not going to be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020.That began to become clear two weeks ago, on the night of Super Tuesday, when Sanders was bested by former Vice President Joe Biden in Virginia, Minnesota, Texas, and several other delegate-rich states. It became even more likely a week later, when Sanders lost Michigan and Missouri by sizable margins. But it turned into a near cert...

Suspending campaigns: A bug or a feature>?

One of the notable features of the present situation is the suspension of ordinary political campaigning (save for the debate I'm now watching between Biden and Sanders).  Why should we lament this, save in the states that have not yet held their primaries for state offices?  The campaign season in the US has become indefensibly extended.  I must get literally a half-a-dozen emails a day from the attractive Democratic candidate running against LIndsay Graham in South Carolina.  I have in fact co...

Why Sanders struck out with black voters

Many of us vividly recall the hotly contested 2016 primary race between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton, whom I strongly supported. Sanders' message of fighting income inequality and pushing for Medicare for all resonated with many Democratic voters, as it does now, and after winning the New Hampshire primary he seemed to have momentum on his side. But the race inevitably shifted to the South and its heavy contingent of black voters.

Bernie Sanders’s 16-point loss to Joe Biden in the Michigan primary came almost four years to the day after Sanders’s stunning upset of Hillary Clinton in Michigan on March 8, 2016, which became the most important moment of Sanders’s 2016 campaign. Michigan was the first really large state to Feel the Bern.

"What should Biden do now? (To me, it's obvious!)"

"I think he should get out now, not skew the voting any longer. He's not going to make it, and he doesn't deserve to make it.

It won't look gracious later, after 2 or more weeks of clinging to lost hope. He can endorse Pete or Amy and give one of them a boost now, when it will really count. But then, if what he secretly wants is to help Bloo...

Biden Seizes Bernie Battleground, Closes In on Trump Showdown

A 2016 win in Michigan helped save Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) presidential campaign.
