Rep. Clyburn: We Will Set An Example With Biden Inauguration
Morning Joe | MSNBC
•Dec 8, 2020

Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-SC, has been selected to co-chair Biden's presidential inaugural committee, and he joins Morning Joe to discuss Biden's inauguration as well as a new bill he's introduced to provide Black WWII vets full GI Bill benefits.


Quote: "This inauguration will be 80% virtual".

I am soooo looking forward to four years (at least) of good example and NORMAL.

Gov. Beshear: Additional December Vaccine Shipments Expected

Gov. Beshear: Additional December Vaccine Shipments Expected
Both Moderna shipments will arrive in December, shortly after initial Pfizer shipment


This is copied from my daily email from the Governor:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 7, 2020) – Today, Gov. Andy Beshear announced the state is expecting two additional COVID-19 vaccine shipments before the end of the year. In total, the state expects at least 38,000 Pfizer doses and 109,000 Moderna doses in December.

The Governor expects more Pfizer allocations to be announced at a later date, possibly before the end of the month.

“The end of this virus is out there. We can see it, and we can feel it. But it’s still months away, and until then, we’ve got to do the right things to protect one another, knowing that when we work hard, we save the lives of those around us and ensure we have the health care capacity we need,” said Gov. Beshear.

The Governor expects Kentucky will receive approximately: 38,000 Pfizer doses the week of Dec. 13-19 (previously announced on Nov. 30); 76,000 Moderna doses the week of Dec. 20-26; and more than 33,000 Moderna doses from Dec. 27-31. Gov. Beshear reminded Kentuckians that while these numbers are the state’s best estimate at this time based on available information from the federal government, they are subject to change.

Each of these doses will go to a different Kentuckian; they are the initial shots that will be followed up with a booster vaccine about three weeks later. Both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s vaccines require an initial dose and a booster dose.

Case Information
As of 4 p.m. Monday, Dec. 7, Gov. Beshear reported the following COVID-19 numbers:

New cases today: 1,972
New deaths today: 10
Positivity rate: 9.60%
Total deaths: 2,082
Currently hospitalized: 1,700
Currently in ICU: 410
Currently on ventilator: 210

Top counties with the most positive cases today are: Jefferson, Fayette, Warren, McCracken, Boone and Kenton. Each of these counties reported 50 or more new cases; Jefferson County alone reported 343.

Coronavirus Vaccine Update With Paul Offit - JAMA video



Coronavirus Vaccine Update With Paul Offit
Streamed live on Dec 2, 2020 (30-minutes)

With the Pfizer and Moderna coronavirus vaccines reportedly under review at the US FDA for emergency use authorization (EUA), Paul A. Offit, MD of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, returns to JAMA's Q&A series to provide an update on what to expect, prospects for vaccine rollout and distribution in the coming months, and ongoing safety surveillance. Recorded December 2, 2020.


JAMA's YouTube video page: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheJAMANetwork/videos


JAMA's main web site coronavirus page: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Link: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/pages/coronavirus-alert

Fall 2020 is seeing continued global spread of COVID-19 with uncertainties about the effects of school reopenings on transmission and the prospects for dual COVID-19 and influenza outbreaks heading into colder months. Vaccine trials are heading into phases 2 and 3, and the FDA’s earlier-year reliance on emergency use authorizations (EUAs) under perceived political pressures to deliver pandemic solutions is raising concerns about the integrity of approval processes for vaccines potentially offered to millions of otherwise healthy people.

Browse the JAMA Network COVID-19 collection below, including Q&A's with NIAID's Anthony Fauci, an interactive map of the outbreak courtesy of The Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering, and past publications on vaccine development, infection control, and public health preparedness.

This update video and JAMA links were cross-posted to the Health Forum, along with a video primer on vaccine development.

Good primer and updates on COVID-19 vaccine development and JAMA links.

From the Journal of the American Medical Association YouTube channel:

Coronavirus Vaccines - An Introduction
•Oct 2, 2020


(10-minutes)

Leading COVID-19 vaccine candidates rely on new technologies that have fast-tracked development and testing. Vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna have completed early phase 3 clinical trials and are reportedly under review at the US FDA for emergency use authorization (EUA) although safety surveillance continues. This video explains the principles underlying the leading DNA, messenger RNA (mRNA), and viral vector vaccine candidates, and how they might induce immunity to SARS-CoV-2 infection.

Sad news anytime but especially near the holidays and during a pandemic. Hoping no one is injured or killed.

Ask them how it feels to help pay off tRump's massive debts.....

while they're likely paying off credit card debt, which tRump probably made worse....

At the same time, we're all slowly paying for the national debt.

Amazing and Hilarious Christmas Light Show! - Christmas Can Can


2013 Light Show
Tom BetGeorge

Featured twice on ABC's Good Morning America - song is "Christmas Can Can" by Straight No Chaser. This is my first year decorating and this is my first sequence ever. I built almost everything from scratch using wood and acrylic. I am a music/teacher director for a living (COVA Conservatory in Oakland and Centerville Presbyterian Church in Fremont), hence the massive instruments! The guitar is 17', the piano is 19' and the drums are standard. About 6,500 channels running around 70,000 lights. Come by and see it in person on the corner of Lafayette and Ruschin in Newark, California! Fair use for educational purposes. Merry Christmas everyone!

"Let It Go" (Frozen) Christmas Lights Show 2014 as Seen on Great Christmas Light Fight!

A fellow here in town built one of these back in the 90s and it was fantastic. We pulled up and parked to watch it and we got the music via our car radio.
