I believe this has nothing to do with sports and concerts. The real target is maga rallies and I’m sure you will see lots more of this...

So, 249 people won't pass on the virus, but 251 will. Dems really do have problems with math. Did they all have talking Barbies when they were kids? "Math is hard!" Apparently for Dems whose brains reject logic, and are fueled entirely by emotion.

#3, there actually is a logical reason to set the number somewhere around 250. With that number it will generally be possible to identify everyone who made contact at the event with a person who later tests positive for the virus. Now, I am not convinced that this is a useful thing to do at this point, but it is not completely illogical.

Nothing like this was ever even mentioned when H1N1 was killing 12K people in North America. Because, of course, OBAMA was President. This is all BS to slow the economy to portray Trump in a bad light. It's a completely politicized media manufactured non-crisis.

Where does he come up with these idiotic ideas? Why was he slow in getting people tested where he knew where there was a problem? This idiot is dangerous. Are there 250 people in homeless camps? Are you aware of laws he signed that help create that mess. Here are a couple things I learned. A home owner must rent to the first person that applies The home owner can not evict during the months with bad weather. I don’t know if this is true but I know I would let my house stand empty before I would rent it out to someone who might hurt my neighbor

In the decade since the Great Recession, cloud computing became the de facto information-technology strategy for startup companies and, increasingly, large corporations alike. The business of renting remote computing power has grown into an enormous industry and, with No. 1 player Amazon and No. 2 Microsoft based in the Seattle area, a mainstay of the region’s broader tech-driven economy. As fears of a recession mount with the spread of the novel coronavirus, cloud analysts are considering how this $263 billion industry would fare in its first significant economic downturn since reaching maturity. The short answer: fairly well, especially for the market leaders.

Gov. Jay Inslee’s campaign to clamp down on greenhouse gas emissions from the state’s transportation fuels, a high-profile goal throughout his two terms in office, faces a difficult road as the Washington state Legislature heads into the final two weeks of its session. Legislation passed by the House of Representatives calls for a 20% reduction of the carbon intensity of these fuels by 2035 over 2017. (snip) But for a second year in row, the House legislation risks dying in the state Senate Transportation Committee, where the chairman, state Sen. Steve Hobbs, D-Lake Stevens, has been hostile to this clean-fuels standard.

Years and millions of dollars in the making, a draft federal report on hydroelectric dam operations in the Columbia Basin will not settle the decadeslong fight over saving imperiled salmon in the Columbia and Snake rivers. Federal agencies found that taking out the dams would “provide a long-term benefit to species that spawn or rear in the mainstem Snake River habitats,” but also would have adverse impacts, including increased power costs, a rise in greenhouse gases and reduced reliability of the electric grid. The report rejects the idea of removing the dams to save endangered or threatened salmon.

With some K-12 school districts and administrators across America panicking and attempting to get ahead of any ‘outbreak’ of the coronavirus, more districts are opting for students to stay home. I’d be willing to bet that most students thoroughly enjoy this. It’s kind of like having ‘snow days.’ However, what might be in store for these students could be far more important than a snow day, as it’s possible that the virus may herald a revolutionary shift in education. Throughout the years, American homeschooling and online K-12 education has become far more popular and realistic than ‘brick and mortar’ public schools want to admit.

In recent years, discussion about homelessness has been circumscribed around a set of premises acceptable to progressive opinion. The homeless were thrown onto the streets, we’re told, because of rising rents, heartless landlords, and a lack of economic opportunity. Activists, journalists, and political leaders have perpetuated this line of reasoning and, following it to its conclusion, have proposed investing billions in subsidized housing to solve homelessness. But new data are undermining this narrative. As residents of West Coast cities witness the disorder associated with homeless encampments, they have found it harder to accept the progressive consensus—especially in the context of the coronavirus epidemic, which has all Americans worried about contagion.
