Baby boy and 2-year-old girl test positive for coronavirus in Florida

Source: The Hill

Florida's Department of Health announced Tuesday that a baby boy and a two-year-old girl have tested positive for the coronavirus.

The baby boy, who was listed by the health department as less than a year old, marks the youngest reported case of COVID-19 in the state, according to the Miami Herald.

Health officials did not say whether the boy or girl had been in contact with someone who tested positive.

While young children are susceptible to contracting the virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said children with confirmed cases generally exhibit milder symptoms than most adults, unless they have underlying medical conditions.

"Covered California projects premiums to rise 40% or more because of COVID-19"

Sorry folks, Covered California is Obamacare and it will not be adequate to our needs.

Let's hope that we win in November and that our new president recognizes that we need a whole different program.

12:30 p.m. Covered California projects premiums to rise 40% or more because of COVID-19: “Premiums in the individual and employer markets for 2021 — which are in the process of being set right now — could be 40 percent or more solely because of these unexpected COVID-19 costs in the absence of federal action, as insurers would seek to recoup unplanned for losses from 2020 and budget for pandemic-related costs in 2021,” officials said in a news release.

Not all coronavirus news is bad. Two good reads here:

First, from the good news network:

10 Positive Updates on the COVID-19 Outbreaks From Around the World

Second, from Atlantic:

What Americans Are Doing Now Is Beautiful

Governor Newsom gave a really encouraging public statement this week:

Stay safe and stay in, my friends. We can do this.

Why I like Warren (without tearing down other candidates)

I noticed that the debate moderators seemed to want to run their own show and pit one candidate against the other.
And it seemed that they didn't want to let Senator Warren in as they might have.
Of course, they disrespected other candidates in this way as well, but that's not the main point of this post.

I mention that, however, because when TPTB and the media ignore a strong candidate, it might indicate that they don't want her to be heard. Call this a conspiracy if you like but it's a pattern with the media.

I prefer Senator Warren because she seems to match sharpness with experience and consistency.
She's not susceptible to accusations of being too young or too old, or being too socialist or to being too Centrist.
This observation is about the media and the voting public and how I feel they would react to the various choices.
I love them all for different reasons but still pull a bit more for Ms. Warren.

If all of these candidates were in a conference room vying for position of CEO or Director of any organization, I would trust her to deliver on her rhetoric and face less resistance than the others. Not by a large margin but by enough of one that I'd be overjoyed.

I think she and Bernie might have the best chances of beating Trump but I might give her the edge if I was a betting man about this.

Amy Klobuchar is pretty sharp, too, and I think Mayor Pete if he became president would be a breath of fresh air.

Introducing the new self driving bicycle in the Netherlands.

Google Netherlands, the deputy mayor of Amsterdam, and director of the Dutch Cyclists Union conspired to create this visionary video. It's visionary, I tell ya!

I recently watched "Cowspiracy" and enjoyed it very much.

The impacts of animal agriculture seem to be under-reported by even the greenest of green groups.

I believe Sea Shepherd was the only group that wasn't caught cow-towing to the industry.

Has anyone else seen it?


It's on Netflix online.
