PSA: Iowa was the 3rd state in the nation to ratify marriage equality

It's been a dumpster fire pretty consistently since then

Eh, even then, it was a State Supreme Court decision. I'd be shocked if it was met with majority agreement.

Yep, and it cost a whole lot of judges their seats.

Just learned we are moving 100% remote starting tomorrow. They say it will just be for 2 weeks, but we’ll see. We have 21 confirmed cases on campus as of Friday

Geophysics, he says?

I went ahead and read the paper. Spoiler alert: there is no geophysical data. He suggests that seasonal spikes in the flu are actually caused by clouds of germs that slowly but surely fall down on populations in cycles related to the weather. This hand waving is done to explain how Wuhan suddenly and abruptly had an outbreak, which of course, needs no explaining. There is no explanation as to how a meteor impact condensed into a cloud that decended on Wuhan. It makes absolutely no sense at all. Where did this come from!?

Apparently a theme of the rally this year was celebrating American freedoms or something and because of this there were almost no precautions taken, very few masks worn, people packing into bars, etc.

yeah events like this are a nightmare. take people from all around the country, pack them into a small town while they do everything possible to spread the virus, then have them fan out across the country to infect other people.

hope that it was worth it to see smash mouth.

Call me crazy, but I am going to default to being skeptical of the Russian vaccine until there's actual evidence outside Russia that it is effective.

All of the subjects died, but at least none of them had COVID.

Dane County has seen a spike in new cases of the virus, with 901 positive tests in the past week alone. Public Health Madison and Dane County said at least 71% of those cases stem from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Not quite the explosion seen in Alabama but I’m sure similar outbreaks are happening in college towns across the country. Did we really think college students wouldn’t party?

No legit outlet seems to be looking at this as more than a routine blip with these sorts of trials, if that. It's only one person out of 30,000.

And if they live on campus the schools are making them leave the campus for two weeks if they test positive (only giving them three hours to pack up at Ole Miss), which is bonkers since they’re just going to go home and possibly transmit it to people who aren’t 18-22 years old, but are 50, 60, or 70 years old. Some schools have “Covid dorms” for quarantine but I’m sure those are filling up or already have. I believe Fauci came out this past week and said the worst thing the schools could do is to force students to leave campus because of the possibility that they’re just going to go disperse it to their hometowns. He said they need to just try and quarantine responsibly in their dorms.

Thankfully, Alabama, Penn State, Ohio State, and like 15 other major schools in a study haven’t reported a single hospitalization from Covid among a student.

I just don’t see how those outbreaks stay contained on campus forever.

You could have bought Novavax stock for like 5 bucks a share back in March. At the height of its frenzy, it hit 175. Freaking insane.

They'd been far more likely to follow had safety rules at the urging of the President and Federal Government. We didn't have to be in this circumstance, I dare say Trump is the worst possible person in World history to be in a position of authority during a Nation wide emergency. Maybe a bit melodramatic of me on the last part.
