What todays Italian figures show is that 14 days of isolation is not long enough, the virus is present in people longer than that.

Even if we do not consider the fully asymptomatic issue, it is not even long enough to be fully sure people that people do not have them (there is case of 20 days before incubation), 14 should get the vast majority of them too.

 

Anyone that expressed symptoms should isolate for way longer obviously.

Another CLusterfuck of a news conference with Trump contradicting himself every second.

And his "as we near the end of our historic battle with the Corona Virus"....God to use a WW2 analogy, we have not even reached Dunkirk yet..

gross

Is this the same Disney and Universal that said they had no plans to delay their own films after No Time To Die jumped out of April?

 

EDIT: The article must have been updated after the tweet, because the tweet really misrepresents the article.

 

The April 1 date is tentative. There are no active plans at the moment to repoen. It's a date that can be pushed back as long as needed.

 

Also, article was updated to include this: "The plan for Universal was to reopen parks on April 1. However, on Tuesday, it was announced the both parks would be closed through April 19."

 

 

Soooo...... FAKE NEWS

I mean, I really want to believe that he's not an idiot and does know something about business and overall economy.

But some things he says and decisions he makes make him look like the entire circus.

Trump went bankrupt running a casino.

I repeat he lost money bigtime running a casino.

That takes a special kind of stupid.

I don’t think they are above the law.

 

I think they get a 3 day head start before the law catches up.

Disney's parent company is getting hammered with ESPN not showing any live sports and all the theme parks closed worldwide. I wonder if they are regretting investing so much of their liquid cash and assuming billions in debt in buying Fox.

One could speculate he purposely ran Trump AC in to the ground to sell it off and not give any workers severance.

Would have certainly be nice to buy them now versus then (if Viacom/Comcast/Verizon share price is any indication, price wise. But company buying stock right now is seen has a giant no-no PR wise for some yet to be explained to me reason.

 

I suspect those who bought Disney at 85$ will be really happy.

Isn't that extremely common in some era for Casino owning group to do so ?

 

Caesar of all place went into a bankruptcy recently.

So it shouldn’t be that shocking to learn that from July 1, 2017, to June 30, 2018, 289 Nevada casinos that annually gross over $1 million in gaming revenue lost a total of $1.168 billion.

 

In a period of 4 year's 33% of AC casino have went through it:

Lack of live sports isn't affecting ESPN as much as one would think.... at least not compared to, lets say CBS missing out on March Madness.

 

It's been several years since I last checked on it, but ESPN makes over 50% of their earnings from monthly subscription fees (as opposed to everyone else who is dependent on strong advertising revenue). ESPN commands by far the highest individual subscription fee in any television package. Last I checked a couple years back, it was around $8. There's a couple networks in the $1-$2 range, with many basic cable networks hovering around 75 cents. They don't depend on advertising revenue, so reduced advertising rates in prime-time hours because of the lack of games won't really pinch them much.

 

Additionally, ESPN doesn't have to shell out the tens of millions it would be spending right now in broadcasting rights, and they can replace those slots with their vast library of content. I know they are re-running their OJ documentary series this week, and I'm sure there are people who would tune in for that kind of content.

This guy was on Dr. Phil...a despicable excuse for a human being. He's an attention whore who loves nothing more than being talked about...

 

1. LICKING a toilet seat? I mean, what the fuck?

 

2. He deserves to get it for being so fucking braindead.

 

3. I think natural selection should take action with him.

Be that as it may, I refuse to believe he's this dumb, or to put it another way, he's not fully aware of what he's doing, and the consequences of it.

 

He's following orders. And/or he doesn't care.
