Broadcast Studio Help

The other day I asked for help selecting items for my broadcast studio.
This is what I have so far. Am I on the right track?

I have an opportunity to set up an at home broadcasting studio.


I need some help. The deadline for submission is this Friday and I am completely overwhelmed.

If you could set up your own from home, zoom type studio with all the needed hardware, what would you buy? The set up should include cameras, laptop, microphones, lighting and any software and hardware to set up an office, like a three way print, copy and fax machine. Add in things like supplies; paper, pens, resource books for, in this case, seasonal arts and crafts for children. What would you buy?

Money is no object.

I have to submit my proposal this Friday, October 23rd. I know that's short notice but I just found out about it.

Thanks for your help.

Slow Covid



NCDHHS APP https://covid19.ncdhhs.gov/slowcovidnc

SlowCOVIDNC Exposure Notification App

It’s easy. All you have to do is download SlowCOVIDNC and you can help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Download the SlowCOVIDNC Exposure Notification app, enable your Bluetooth and Exposure Notification settings, and be notified if you have been in close contact with someone who has shared a positive COVID-19 test result in the app.

Once you opt-in to the notification system, you can also anonymously share a positive COVID-19 test result in the app. SlowCOVIDNC protects your identity and privacy while empowering you to protect yourself, your family, and your community.

How it Works

•Download the SlowCOVIDNC Exposure Notification app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store and enable Bluetooth and Exposure Notifications. Bluetooth must be on for the app to work. After opting-in to receive notifications, the app will generate an anonymous token for your device. A token is a string of random letters which changes every 10-20 minutes and is never linked to your identity or location, but is linked to date. This protects your privacy and security.

•Through Bluetooth, your phone and the phones around you with the SlowCOVIDNC app work in the background (minimizing battery) to exchange these anonymous tokens every few minutes. Phones record how long they are near each other and the Bluetooth signal strength of their exchanges in order to estimate distance.

•If you test positive for COVID-19, you may obtain a unique PIN to submit in the app. This voluntary and anonymous reporting notifies others who have downloaded the app that they may have been in close contact with someone in the last 14 days who has tested positive.

•PINs will be provided to app users who receive a positive COVID-19 test result through a web-based PIN Portal, by contacting the Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) call center, or by contacting their Local Health Department (LHD).

•SlowCOVIDNC periodically downloads tokens from the server from the devices of users who have anonymously reported a positive test. Your phone then uses its records of the signal strength and duration of exposures with those tokens to calculate risk and determine if you have met a threshold to receive an Exposure Notification.

Your Privacy is Protected

Using SlowCOVIDNC is entirely voluntary, and you can enable or disable it at any time. When using SlowCOVIDNC, your privacy is protected. Tokens will collect and share date, time, signal strength and duration of proximity. No location data or personally identifiable data will ever be collected or stored.

By enabling Bluetooth and Exposure Notifications, you can anonymously share a positive COVID-19 test result to help slow the spread of COVID-19. You may also be notified if you have been in close contact with someone who has shared a positive COVID-19 test result in the app.

Step By Step: How To Vote Absentee By-Mail In North Carolina

Step By Step: How To Vote Absentee By-Mail In North Carolina

WFAE | By WFAE
Published September 22, 2020 at 11:27 AM EDT


With the coronavirus causing many of us to stay away from crowds, an unprecedented number of people are expected to vote absentee for the Nov. 3 election. Are you voting absentee by-mail for the first time? Do you have questions about how to do it and want to make sure you do it right so your ballot is accepted? Follow this step-by-step guide.

First, collect your absentee ballot. (Want to know how to request one? Do that online here, or by submitting a completed request form via mail, email, fax or in person to your county board of elections.)

You'll receive a ballot like the one below.

Make sure you follow directions and mark each vote with a black ball point pen. Fill in each oval completely to the left of your selection.

Coronavirus can survive on skin for 9 hours

By Rachael Rettner



Snip


SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, remained viable on samples of human skin for about 9 hours, according to the study. In contrast, a strain of the influenza A virus (IAV) remained viable on human skin for about 2 hours.

Fortunately, both viruses on skin were rapidly inactivated with hand sanitizer.

The findings underscore the importance of washing your hands or using sanitizer to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

"This study shows that SARS-CoV-2 may have a higher risk of contact transmission [i.e. transmission from direct contact] than IAV because the first is much more stable on human skin [than the latter]" the authors wrote in their paper, which was published online Oct. 3 in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases. "These findings support the hypothesis that proper hand hygiene is important for the prevention of the spread of SARS-CoV-2."
