The outlook is grim for the movie industry at the moment, with cinema closures and postponed movie releases causing seismic shifts in the movie calendar.

    Let's be real, this latest implied move of aggression by the Trump administration, towards a sovereign nation, is all about the oil. Russia after all, effectively nullified Trump's Venezuela sanctions against oil company Rosnet, by transferring the Rosnet oil company assets in Venezuela to a company fully owned by the Russian government (Ron points this out). Looks like Putin plays 3d chess also.

    National Debt Could Surpass $25 Trillion Amid Spending to Combat Coronavirus By Jason Lemon On 3/23/20 The national debt is projected to reach or even surpass $25 trillion as the federal government attempts to combat the fall-out from the coronavirus pandemic with trillions of dollars in economic stimulus. States and municipalities across the country have shuttered restaurants, bars, gyms, cinemas, schools, and public gatherings, while ordering all non-essential workers to stay home in a bid to curb the rapid spread of the COVID-19. Due to the uncertainty, the stock market has tanked and unemployment has surged, with millions of workers expecting to go without paychecks for at least the next few weeks. In an effort to address the economic and public health concerns, Congress is currently working on a massive stimulus package to the tune of $1.3 to $1.4 trillion, according to President Donald Trump's economic adviser Larry Kudlow. In total, the White House has hinted at $2 trillion or more of economic stimulus. The stimulus spending will come as the U.S. was already planning for a budget deficit of about $1 trillion in the current fiscal year. As the national debt already stands at about $23.5 trillion, CNBC reported on Monday that the ballooning debt could grow to $25 trillion or higher in the coming months. https://www.newsweek.com/national-debt-could-surpass-25-trillion-amid-spending-combat-coronavirus-1493758

    Commander of aircraft carrier hit by coronavirus removed for 'poor judgment' after sounding alarm By Ryan Browne, Zachary Cohen and Jamie Crawford, CNN Updated 7:17 PM ET, Thu April 2, 2020 Washington (CNN)The commander of a US aircraft carrier that has been hit by a major outbreak of coronavirus has been relieved of command for showing "poor judgment" days after writing a memo warning Navy leadership that decisive action was needed to save the lives of the ship's crew, acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly announced on Thursday. "Today at my direction the commanding officer of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, Captain Brett Crozier, was relieved of command by carrier strike group commander Rear Admiral Stewart Baker," Modly said during a Pentagon press briefing.

    Timing might be coincidence but two days after very harsh attack from Congresswoman Maxine Waters, White House in today's briefing presented a strong public relationing message showcasing efforts led by First Son-in-law Jared Kushner to secure protective gear for NY hospitals on urgent basis. White House also took the higher road and did not respond to Waters disrespectful tweets. Kushner if delivers successfully on this front, that should also help negate some earlier nepotism claims by disgruntled Republicans like Ann Coulter and Steve Bannon. Kusnher had earlier led US Mideast Peace efforts in a high profile initiative but that initiative failed badly according to most observers. Jared Kushner says he secured N95 masks for NYC during briefing room debut By Ebony Bowde April 2, 2020 | 7:49pm Jared Kushner and Mike Pence speak earlier today.

    U.S. coronavirus deaths top 1,000 in single day, White House expected to recommend everyone wear masks Matt Zapotosky, Isaac Stanley-Becker and John Wagner, The Washington Post Thursday, April 2, 2020 A pedestrian wears a mask in Washington on Thursday, April 2, 2020. WASHINGTON - The death toll and economic devastation from the novel coronavirus reached staggering new levels in the United States on Thursday as officials reported more than 1,000 deaths from the pandemic in a single day and revealed that more than 6.6 million Americans had sought unemployment benefits in a single week. The White House is expected to urge at least some people across the country to begin wearing cloth masks or face coverings in public to dampen the spread of the virus. The potential reversal of earlier mask recommendations - which White House officials indicated Thursday were still being debated - signaled the seriousness of the outbreak and rising concerns in Washington about the effect it could have on millions of Americans.

    For context, Rep. Waters harsh attacks on POTUS followed below media reports: Photo shows NY hospital staff using trash bags as protective gear By Justine Coleman - 03/26/20 A photo is circulating online showing Mount Sinai Health System nurses using trash bags as a form of personal protective equipment (PPE) after a nursing manager died of the coronavirus on Tuesday. The picture has garnered attention on social media as hospitals deal with a lack of supplies to treat the growing number of people diagnosed with COVID-19. A system spokesperson told The New York Times that they were not aware of nurses wearing trash bags as protective gear and noted the photos show the staff wearing other gear below the bags. In a statement to The Hill, a spokesperson said the hospital system "always" provides "all our staff with the critically important" PPE "they need to do their job."

    Rep. Waters has had tense relationship with Trump since at least pre-election days of so called "birther movement" but this time she has clearly crossed the line in a series of tweets.

    Statement was about potential health risks, some of us prefer to err on the side of caution given some evidence about risks and history of some coroprations downplaying of risks posed by their products.

    On an un-related note, H/T Drudge Report: White House projects 100K to 240K US deaths from virus President Donald Trump speaks about the coronavirus in the James Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House, Tuesday, March 31, 2020, in Washington. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon) ASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned Americans to brace for a “hell of a bad two weeks” ahead as the White House projected there could be 100,000 to 240,000 deaths in the U.S. from the coronavirus pandemic even if current social distancing guidelines are maintained.Public health officials stressed that the number could be less if people across the country bear down on keeping their distance from one another. “We really believe we can do a lot better than that,” said Dr. Deborah Birx, the coordinator of the White House coronavirus task force. That would require all Americans to take seriously their role in preventing the spread of disease, she said.

Trump defends $25 million in Kennedy Center funding in coronavirus stimulus By Brett Samuels - 03/25/20 President Trump on Wednesday defended the inclusion of $25 million in funding for the Kennedy Center as part of the massive economic relief bill aimed at boosting small businesses and workers harmed by the fallout of the coronavirus. Trump fashioned himself a supporter of the arts, arguing that the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is deserving of assistance given its inability to put on shows as officials ban large gatherings to try to curb the spread of the virus.

    Is risk at such distances even less the 0.1 W cell phone radiation? Not too long ago, it was claimed that not possible for cell phones radiation to cause health risk. BTW my comment was not to reinforce CV link claim but as a general statement related to potential risks of almost exponentially expanding radiation grid around us.

    Republican Socialists? Once Sanders bows out, many Democratic socialists may again vote Republican by Brian Stewart March 15, 2020 It was recently reported that in 2012, Bernie Sanders had to be pressed hard by then-Senate majority leader Reid not to launch a primary challenge against President Obama. For those who have been paying attention to the recent history of the political left, the surprise here is not that the Vermont Senator and self-proclaimed independent democratic socialist was tempted to revolt against the modern embodiment of the Democratic establishment, but that he was successfully persuaded to resist the temptation. The question is: why? This aborted insurrection may be a cause of lingering regret for Sanders after the Democratic establishment mobilized to deny him the party’s nomination in 2016 and has now again rallied behind the old guard in the figure of Joe Biden. Such machinations have led Sanders to openly declare his opposition to partisan elites in toto, and may lead him to stay in the race even after any hope of securing the nomination has vanished. Should he prolong his campaign after the Ides of March––as might be expected of a movement rather than a coalition––the chief effect will be to diminish his already-battered Democratic rival and to bolster President Trump. To a limited but energized segment of Sanders’s camp, this may not be the worst imaginable outcome. For this faction-within-a-faction, a conventional Democrat––what Sanders has derided throughout this campaign as a corporate Democrat––poses greater problems than a re-elected Trump administration. This explains why, either in a fit of pique or out of principle, more than 1 in 10 Sanders voters in 2016 pulled the lever for Trump. It’s not a big total, but it’s not nothing.

Once in a while WaPo does print news with potential to inform. Perhaps the Trump inspired growing wedge between moderate/left-wing, pro Iraq-war zionism of WaPo/NYT and hard-right pro-Israeli settlements zionism of the Kushner family is resulting in some infighting that might benefit tax payers in the end.
