RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

One distinct issue I see is a blasé attitude taken by the millaneals versus the life and death attitude taken by the >60 population. I incite controversy by inviting them to become a hospital volunteer.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

AstraZenaca had a heavily decalled trials box van running around Chula Vista CA two weeks ago. They were enlisting volunteers taking nose swabs administering vaccine and they were administering different dosages. Compromised elders like me were given stronger doses. Then 2-4 weeks after an even stronger booster is to be administered, then a blood sample taken

RE: New? Lithium Battery Advertisement

The philosophy of miracles is long on word count and mighty short in function. I've no doubt the final score evaluation with existing lithium examples will come up short when it comes to cycle lifespan versus total kWh for the money. There has been insufficient time and examples available to fuel an adequate verdict. Due to too much saturation of Shell gasoline with TCP, STP the racer's edge, The teflon and chlorine oil additives, the JC PENNEY forever battery, absurd tire claims, carbon in the battery, oil in the battery.. the gizmo claims are never ending. Time testing will separate hyperbole from reality. Two thousand full cycles equals many many years of boondocking. And virtually forever solar charging life where daily recharging starts off with 70% charged rate. Expecting active monitoring and control circuits to endure 5 years of activity is asking the moon. I build electronic power control circuits and even using cost and size is no concern attitude 5 years is asking a lot. The problem is I won't be around in 5 years to see it. If money is no object then this is a capitalist society. But please refrain from singing unproven rhymes of praise for an unproven product .

MISTER MODERATOR your request is becoming increasingly difficult. ;) There was an is no reason given for the rest of the world resuming testing of a Covid19 Phase III TEST while the USA BALKS for no given reason. The adverse reaction happened in Great Britain and they have long since resumed trials. Maybe our illucidated medical advisors can shed some light on this. ----------------- We understand the difficulty, we do. Politics have never cured anyone; science has. Keep in mind we, as moderators, have to continually bite our tongues on this issue as well as many others; we don't always succeed but we sure try. :) (Mod)

RE: New? Lithium Battery Advertisement

One thing about graphene, such as for a bulletproof vest. It may prevent entry of a bullet, but it does nothing to dissipate energy. A .44 mag round impact anywhere near the heart will induce cardiac infarction unless scientifically designed padding spreads the energy over a wide area. Very useful is the study of the US Navy and torpedo protection...the best way to prevent torpedo damage was to clad the hull with water filled blisters with relief valves. A solid hit on a battleship's armored belt prevented penetration but the shock transmitted caused propeller shaft misalignment, broken electrical components, and dozens of hatch closure failures. Every game changer needs to be taken with a grain of salt.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

There is an overabundance of factual evidence that masks and distancing works. Weddings with 100 atendees sans masks and distancing of which 20+ developed COVID within a couple of weeks. A cantina in the state of Oaxaca, which had 30 regular customers. No mask, no distancing, and little ventilation. Twenty four of the thirty developed Covid19, and four died including the bartender. I am sitting in a house, solo. In "cuarantina". A 75 degree breeze is flapping drapes and rattling venetian blinds. I shop fewer than weekly. Hoping my exposure amounts to less than critical dosage. No shopping at stores that do not satisfy my criteria for safe distancing (Like the absurdly packed checkout at Home Depot). COSTCO here has multiple celing fans in the checkout area and will forcefully eject "customers" who refuse to abide by the mask and social distancing guidelines. In the checkout area clearly marked distancing spacing exists on the concrete floor. One departure means one admitted density control. Temperature taking mandatory for admittance. And finally, the cops come and haul violators away. They go to the police station and pay a fine of forty six dollars and there is no monkey business with bribery. Isn't it amazing how much higher the rate of infection is for cities in Mexico that have subways that get packed during rush hour? And dismissal of concern by people age 30 or younger? I have two housekeepers, who alternate three days duty weekly. They understand clearly that they will receive full pay if they or anyone in their family shows signs of infection. I wish I knew post infection data that would show clear guidance of how long transmission danger exists after the symptoms of infection go away. When they work in one room I am in another. With a breeze in the house. I have aerosol Lysol and Clorox and they apply a cup of bleach to the toilet and wipe it down after use. I just turned 74. I intend to reach 75 so I can maintain a financial lifeline to my daughter and grand kids.

RE: Bad air quality--finally taped a house filter on the A/C

I left my Holmes HEPA 2 filter behind. It would filter dust, smoke, pollen and yes, Covid19 from the air. Not just "so much" but greater than 99.9%. Yes, even the virus. All of it. It was a large unit not all tall but every bit as fat as a wheeled battery charger. The replacement filters are not cheap either. But for unexcelled purifying a "HEPA 2" filter is the cat's meow. Every few years we had a bloom of a nocturnal plant. Even with Loratadine, an effective oral antihistamine, I could not sleep. After I smuggled the Holmes filter, the symptoms stopped 100% and I ceased the medicine. The stupid virus seems like it's going to be around long enough to almost justify the purchase a HEPA 2 filter, with fan. It takes a strong, well made blower to push air through the HEPA 2 media. The EPA, the CDC, and JAMA has proven the effectiveness of HEPA 2 against the COVID Virus It would filter out contaminated air from a fire, no sweat. It filtered out the intense aroma of a Night Blooming Jasmine just outside the bedroom window. A rough guesstimate for cost, would place the cost for a 5 story 100 bed hospital at seventeen million dollars purchase and installation and fifteen thousand dollars a w e e k to renew elements. So that thought flies out the window, never mind Hazmat disposal of used filters. HEPA 2 is a great option despite it's cost for RV use. I love how it filters out fish fry odors from the galley. It would take a half horsepower ball bearing squirrel cage blower and 20" square, filter element to satisfy the needs of a 35' 5th wheel trailer.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

I wish more could be done to prevent cytokine storm death and damage re: Johns Hopkins et al. Autoimmune disease medications verbatim Hydroxychloroquine is usually taken twice daily. The pills are 200-mg. each. The usual dose is 1 or 2 pills daily. This medicine should be taken at the same time every day. It will take 1 to 2 months to begin working. At least one month of medication of hydroxycloroquine is required 200mg BID before onset of efficacy begins. My rheumatologist warned me it would take 90 days. The drug began to work after day 70 Senior Covid patients >50 years should be asked if they are currently Rx Hydroxycloquine. If evidence suggests they became victims of a cytokine storm then the medication proves that it is utterly ineffective, and it should be limited to rheumatology patients only. I suffered a 6-month shortage of Plaquenil, then resultant cost of FIFTY DOLLARS for 20 pills for utter social pressure. Rheumatoid Arthritis is horrible. But a cytokine storm is a critical AUTOIMMUNE reaction in a few Covid patients. The question of any effect on a cytokine storm on a long term hydroxycloroquine user would come to a screeching halt should they suffer a cytokine storm. Let the clinical analysts decide the relevance but for goodness sake gather relevant data. A few days of hydroxycloroquine administration is worthless. Any Lupus, or rheumatoid arthritis patient would raise eyebrows at the idea. The results of a valid study are are irrefutable. And all it takes is one simple question upon admittance. It would take a great number of patients to quantify an answer. Thousands of check marks. How hard is that? Administration of antimarials for months as a prophylactic against Covid is equally absurd even if studies show it has a beneficial effect in lessening the damage of a cytokine storm. The link was enhanced when it was discovered between a steroid and cytokine storm damage. Why does an antimalarial work for autoimmune disease? Most importantly failure to prevent a cytokine storm takes relatively few positives to utterly disqualify the medication. Leaving no shortage for qualified usage.

RE: Head light not working.

Since the low beam works, wouldn't that rule out the ground (-)? This must be a very very old rig. 4 rectangular headlights? The way the OP phrased the question threw me, Thanks for pointing it out.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Suseptibility is heavily influenced by social habits. Parents that do not filter social contacts of young children put them at higher percentage risk of infection. Many young children forget to distance themselves or even to wash their hands. Calculations of severity of an individual's infection are based on statistical averaging and trends and tendencies. Educated guessing. But educated guesswork is a far cry from oujia guesswork.

RE: Head light not working.

You need to test not guess. A cheap test light probe. Available at any parts store. Remove the electrical plug to the rear of the lamp The cord of the test probe has an alligator clip. It needs to connect to ground Find a ground and then shine it up with rough sandpaper Beware of selecting metal not connected to the frame, or the test won't work. Switch on the headlights. Verify the other headlamp is lit. Stick the needle probe into all three terminals on the headlight wiring PLUG No light? Advance to wiring diagnostics. If the test light lights up, you have a ground wire problem Note which wire the test lamp lights up on Switch dimmer switch to other beam. Note the other headlight Does the test light now light up on a second terminal of the headlight plug? The REMAINING terminal is the ground and it's connection to ground is damaged.

RE: We are Drowning in our...

This very issue is what scorned me away from RV'ing the states decades ago. Since the mid seventies I went strictly backpacking and horsepacking. And in Mexico if I couldn't live around my rig instead of cooped-up inside, I left for greener pastures. When Mexico went full-bore to eliminate roadside littering in the 1980's they didn't screw around. Hundred dollar littering fines and real recycling money paid for scrapped cars that used to be found alongside roadways and filling canyons. At the hotel a simple sign worked wonders for RV'ers LIDS MUST FIT TIGHT, OR THERE WILL BE BITING FLIES.
