A bidet is another idea.

The global situation sure brings to mind Klein's "Shock Doctrine". I have no doubt that the pandemic will provide cover for all sorts of mischief. For example bailing out the failing fracking industry.

"With this move, Trump has rolled out a plan to prop up U.S. oil companies before he has even bothered to guarantee paid sick leave for US workers who are going to be on the frontlines of the coronavirus crisis for weeks to come."
—Alex Doukas, Oil Change International

Or what about the 1.5 Trillion dollar market bailout?

$1.5 trillion is more than the entire annual U.S. discretionary budget.
$1.5 trillion is enough to cancel all student debt in the United States.
$1.5 trillion is far more than enough to cover the cost difference between Medicare for All and our current privatized health insurance system.
$1.5 trillion is enough to build out all the renewable wind and solar capacity we need to replace all fossil fuel energy generation in the country over 10 years through a Green New Deal that takes on the climate crisis.

Then there's deregulation of Wall Street.

The Bank Policy Institute (BPI), a Washington-based lobbying organization representing many of the nation’s largest banks, released a set of proposals this week, the most important of which recommends that the Federal Reserve lower capital requirements to zero. This would mean banks could lend an unlimited amount without having any assets or wealth to back it up. It also advocated relaxing the so-called “stress tests” that force banks to show that they can withstand economic shocks. This, it claims, would help America fight the COVID-19 virus.

...And we haven't even touched on foreign policy shenanigans.

Of course the big news of the week is all about the COVID-19...
Friday's press conference put the corporate capture of government on clear display. The real cabinet was revealed. There was the department of Walmart, Target, CVS, and many more on display... all eager to profit off of the pandemic. They proudly proclaimed the development of tests in record time. The unsaid item is the WHO already developed a test which was effective. Re-inventing (ie privatizing) a COVID-19 test was simple profiteering IMO which delayed the US' ability to effectively contain the spread of the virus. As Dr John Campbell suggests few nations are following the WHO guidelines and there are many contradictions...

Also adding his Friday update
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYTFk34nhoI (21 min)

Lee camp gives his take in 10 min or so...

This week, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said 60 to 70 percent of the German population would likely be infected—potentially meaning the deaths of hundreds of thousands or millions of people. On Thursday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson declared, “I must level with the British public: many more families are going to lose loved ones before their time.”
...British Telegraph columnist Jeremy Warner stated openly what is being discussed within ruling circles when he wrote, “the COVID-19 might even prove mildly beneficial in the long term by disproportionately culling elderly dependents.”

https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2020/03/14/pers-m14.html

Neither the British nor the German government announced major additional allocation of funds to deal with the crisis.

The disruptions have arrived. Lots of good info including self care in this 30 min clip.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWEakkc_xxs
The situation in Italy is discussed in the clip referenceing this article...
https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)30627-9/fulltext

We predict that if the exponential trend continues for the next few days, more than 2500 hospital beds for patients in intensive care units will be needed in only 1 week to treat ARDS caused by SARS-CoV-2-pneumonia in Italy. In the meantime, the government is preparing to pass legislation that will enable the health service to hire 20 000 more doctors and nurses and to provide 5000 more ventilators to Italian hospitals. These measures are a step in the right direction, but our model tells us that they need to be implemented urgently, in a matter of days.

...and another warning from the clip above about why you don't want COVID-19
https://www.scmp.com/news/hong-kong/health-environment/article/3074988/c...

Hospital Authority releases its findings after observing the first group of discharged coronavirus patients. Some patients might have a drop of about 20 to 30 per cent in lung function, says medical director of Infectious Disease Centre at Princess Margaret Hospital

handshake.jpg

Jimmy calls out capitalist that wants to give us all the virus. And I must admit I was thinking getting the virus and getting over it was a good idea...That is until I realized lung damage can occur before you have real symptoms.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6DQBG8D4X4 (8.5 min)

I like this fellow's dry humor (15 min)

At this point focusing on building your immune system is a good idea. Some suggest various herb and vitamin supplements. Eating and resting/sleeping well is important, and perhaps the most difficult is to reduce stress as the 24/7 cycle tells you to worry...you might die. To which I say we are all going to die.

Immune support strategies...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CpUlcOppbjg (28 min)
He kinda has an ad for his supplements but it is pretty good advice. He recommends saunas and cold showers, probiotics, green tea, mushrooms, and various supplements.

Looks like a sauna won't cure you but fend off the disease.
A Sauna might be a good idea if you have access to one.

Experts caution that the sauna may not help after the virus infects the lungs, but it may play a role in the early stages and prevention of the virus.

Regular sauna users have fewer colds and illness.

What if you do get the virus? Vitamin C especially when injected seems beneficial...
http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v16n12.shtml
Zinc may also combat the virus..
https://www.reddit.com/r/Supplements/comments/fbcrvz/zinc_vs_coronavirus...
Here's another article confirming the anti-viral abilities of zinc
Zinc seems to be better absorbed into cells where it exhibits virus suppression by some anti-malarial drugs like chloroquine https://www.drugs.com/pro/chloroquine.html

I'm not a doctor but these ideas might be worth looking into if you become infected.

biden horse.jpg

One of the virus disruptions is going to be in the election. Will folks tune in to the debate tonight? Will Biden unravel? Will Bernie be allowed to make his case?

Perhaps Chris hedges says it best...

Only one thing matters to the oligarchs. It is not democracy. It is not truth. It is not the consent of the governed. It is not income inequality. It is not the surveillance state. It is not endless war. It is not jobs. It is not the climate. It is the primacy of corporate power — which has extinguished our democracy and left most of the working class in misery — and the continued increase and consolidation of their wealth.
... The longer we are fooled by the electoral burlesque, the more disempowered we will become.

Chris Hedges discusses with Professor Rashid Khalidi the long, disingenuous role the United States has played in the Israel/Palestine conflict, including the latest so-called peace plan. Khalidi is the Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia University and author of Brokers of Deceit: How the US has undermined peace in the Middle East.

So the world is different as COVID-19 makes impact in the US and around the world. The pandemic has ushered in new age. It feels a bit like after 9/11 to me. Be aware, I think they will use our fear to manipulate the system to be even more unequal, violent, and repressive. So let's prepare as best we can. Take precautions. Focus on our health and work to build immunity (and community). Consider starting a garden or using containers to grow lettuce and other healthy leafy greens. Get outside when you can. Sunlight is deadly to this virus, and being in nature reduces stress. Wishing you all good health and happiness! Think I'll try one of those Quarantinis...

Was the first calming piece of news I've heard since this started. Which is definitely in short supply these days as I'm surrounded by people who have lost their minds. So much so, some Trader Joes stores are temporarily closing as our vendors cannot keep up with the demand. I don't think that will be an issue for my store for a few reasons, but in that unlikely event, TJ's will pay us for all the days we are scheduled. Even so, this is brand new territory a lot of us "wage slaves" will have to navigate successfully. As I plan to, panic be damned. In any case, need to get ready for work now but wanted to check in. Be well, my friend.

From Caitlin Johnstone:

Chelsea Manning Supporters Raise A Quarter Million Dollars In Two Days

...
In just two days after Manning was released from prison, more than six thousand donors banded together to pay off the $258,000 fine assigned at a thousand dollars a day by a federal judge on top of imprisonment to coerce her to testify. Fundraising was so enthusiastic that it had overshot the goal and reached $267,002 before the GoFundMe was closed.
...
Now there’s a much humbler task of raising funds for Manning’s living expenses, which is a GoFundMe for a trust of $30,000. This fundraiser is just hours old and as of this writing it’s at $6,870, so we should have her set up with that in no time.

I think the runs on tp are due fear of the runs. It is a frequent enough symptom of illnesses that nobody wants to risk being without.

CALIFORNIA — California is asking all bars to close and residents age 65 and older, along with those with chronic health conditions, to stay home in an effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Sunday.

The policy applies to bars, nightclubs, wineries and brewpubs. Restaurants have not been ordered closed, as they have been in Illinois and Ohio, but Newsom said the state will require them to reduce capacity by half and practice "deep social distancing" by separating patrons by about six feet.
