  1. Past hour
  2. Due to something going on the Middle East all these films will hit the net soon (before anyone goes on binge, we dont knoe if these filns will be censored). Drake Doremus’s Endings, Beginnings Hirokazu Kore-eda’s The Truth with Ethan Hawke Misbehaviour with Keira Knightley, The Assistant, starring Ozark’s Julia Garner.
  3. Spain - Monday 135,032 positive cases (+4,273 relative to Sunday) +3.27% 13,055 deaths (+637) +5.13% 40,437 healed (+2,357) +6.19% 81,540 active cases (+1,279) +1.59% A bit muted numbers, probably because during weekends numbers are underreported as I said yesterday. Tomorrow, we will probably have some rises, but the trend continues being good. Last Monday we had 6,400 new positive cases against today's 4,200. It is a 33% lower. Lowest daily death number since March 25th Daily new active cases keep dropping. Barely over 1,000 increase. Healed people already over 40,000.
  4. Today
  5. @DeeCee many many thanks, that is exactly what she needed. I also sent the text to a few other people I know who are already sewing, I think quite a few might have some of those fabrics on private storage
  6. there are articles that explain details in e.g. Chicago Tribune and NYT, but the combination of my location and maybe some security details... I can not open those beside even trying to subscribe https://www.nytimes.com/article/coronavirus-homemade-mask-material-DIY-face-mask-ppe.html Chicago wont even allow the link, that is what O manage to read Commentary: Quilters are patching together hope through mask-sewing effort Chicago Tribune|9 days ago Turns out that high thread count, tightly woven cotton fabrickeeps out about 74% of airborne gunk. Home-sewn masks ... filter of the possible. The library stocked newly published books about ... Can someone do a screenshot please?
  7. Yeah, that's the thing. Movies that are made will be released everntually. But there's a large number of movies slated for 2021 and 2022 whose shooting is delayed indefinitely. Also, how many movies they can shoot at the same time? A number of these 2021/2022 released was supposed to shoot this year, which is completely up in the air. I guess they'll have to do a triage and shoot priorities and the rest push further.
  8. I just came across this great info graphic with various breakdowns for cases in Australia. https://www.health.gov.au/sites/default/files/documents/2020/04/coronavirus-covid-19-at-a-glance-coronavirus-covid-19-at-a-glance-infographic_0.pdf
  9. Lmfao if robot parks gets more Emmys love and Lindelof gets shunned again
  10. Can someone help find me the description which kind of fabrics and filter materials got tested as rather good for sewing masks? I remember it was quilting fabrics, something mentioned like their batics being proven to be far better than normal fabrics and so on I mentioned something about the article/tweet/post to aA passionate quilter friend of mine, she’d love to read that herself (some additional hints, especially about the filter materials mentioned) I can not remember if I have read it here or elsewhere, it was in English and done by an US
  11. @TMP HBO copying their own shows. Westworld season 3 gonna have a black and white dream (caused by taking a drug) episode like Watchmen Episode 6.
  12. All you have to do is look at the difference between California, Washington, New York, and Florida (yes there are some extenuating circumstances, I'll get to those) : WA median projection: 84 deaths per million people. CA median projection: 45 deaths per million people. NY median projection: 801 deaths per million people. FL median projection: 315 deaths per million people. California was the first state in the union to have a blanket stay at home order (parts of Washington did issue one before even Cali, it should be noted). New York state waited five more days. However, NYC is much more reliant on subways and is denser population wise than most of California. Florida has been debated to death, so I'll set that aside for the moment. That California is even ahead of Washington on the optimistic model makes me, sadly, hella suspicious that this is too good to be true. HOWEVER, I do have something of a thought. Lots of folks have been bringing up California's car culture and our more wide open spaces. But I think there might be another factor. California just had its driest February... EVER. At least as far back as Anglo records go. For instance, for the first time ever, Sacramento didn't get a drop of rain in the month of February. Not a single rain drop at all in one of our rainiest months we get. March wasn't that hot for rain, either (about half of what we normally get). In fact locally, we just in the last couple of days got our first real amount of rain at any one time (one and a half inches so far in the latest storm) since January. What I'm wondering is if the much drier than normal Jan/Feb/March slowed down the spread of the virus in this state so by the time we did go to stay at home land, we were in much better shape than other more humid climes. The compare and contrast here could be Washington. They shut down King County before Cali even got in on the act. They're going to be, again if this model is right, leaps and bounds ahead of places like Florida and New York. But California still leaves it in the dust. Maybe the drought like conditions statewide helped out. Hell if I know. But it's as good as explanation as any as to why we might be doing better than expected. (FWIW, Arizona is projected for 78 deaths per million people, but they put their stay at home policy in place on March 30th - Could be California will come up roses, if it does, because it got its act together quickly and it had favorable weather conditions)
  13. Shoot I completely forgot to do this. I can get a list tomorrow if you’re still accepting them last minute
  14. Strange times.... Households get paid to use electricity. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/apr/05/thousands-to-be-paid-for-daytime-green-electricity-use-during-lockdown
  15. Ivory Coast People living nearby thought the new center to analyze is too near to their houses, so they destroyed what was already build. Abidjan has roughly 5 million inhabitants, that equlas roughly 20% of the country’s population In a way the economic capital acc Wiki
  16. Good news! Always remember: lockdown DOES work, it's working in every single country where it's enforced. At least we're not damaging our economy for nothing, there are lives saved (a lot) and pressure taken away from the health systems everywhere.
  17. I wouldn't say that there's any particular political group that needs to hear this, because it's basically just IDIOTS who wanna yell and scream. Doesn't matter their political/religious/ideological affiliations, everyone is susceptible to stupidity. Criticizing the Chinese government is NOT racism! Being racist to ethnic Chinese people IS racism! Know the difference!
  18. Decided to check out Quibi since they have a 90 day trial. Watched "Most Dangerous Game" and it's not bad. The pacing is ultra quick because of episodes being about 8 minutes each. In 3 episodes there's more plot progression than most prestige shows hit in more than 90 minutes. The landscape to portait thing is pretty nice although you lose a lot of the details from the full picture when you go portrait. WaPo nails it
  19. UW site was finally updated tonight. A decent jump down in the median deaths for the US overall by Aug and a significant drop in deaths by Aug for California. Too good to be true drop, probably. Just for Cali, the model was projecting around 5k deaths as of April 1st for early August (5,068 to be exact). Now as of April 5th for Cali the median line is 1,783 (1,430 - 2,396). Almost certainly due to the surge of test numbers that came in the last few days. I know I have been... Skeptical isn't the right word so instead I'll use the phrase "cautious to accept" some of the worst case scenarios floating about. This number, while exceedingly welcome, strikes me as overly optimistic. Still if it is even remotely true as of Aug, it'll show that California did a lot right in during this catastrophe.
  20. Exactly. Indie/festival films will definitely go to VOD for the most part, but big horror and action blockbusters? No way.
  21. Lack of oxygen to the brain means covid kills no one. Checkmate libs! For the record that grifter was a Bernie bro. As was CJ Pearson.
