  1. Coronavirus

    It seems that the government is finally going to close bars and restaurants! If they had closed bars and limited opening hours for restaurants 2 weeks ago, we would not be in this mess again!

    Let´s get these corona virus down and you´re on!

    It is a cultural problem. I see at my kid's school what they offer for lunch! My kid refuses it half the time.  We feed him Portuguese food, with soup (real soup, not what they have in Germany!), lots of vegetables, lots of fish, lots of fruit and different types of meat. He drinks water and once a week orange juice. Today he ate a complete Dourada with oven potatoes. Once, on a birthday party at Macdonalds (we were not there), he refused to eat the burger, it tasted really bad in his opinion!   But even in Portugal this is going bad. Uneducated and poor people just use premade meals, lots of carbs, etc.

    TBH CNN fails as the vast majority of news sources in America: they give much more opinions than factual news. It is as cringing to watch Anderson Cooper as someone from FoxNews. Can they stick with facts and at least pretend to be unbiased?

      BTW, what is the age limit? 12?

      Take a copy and post it on the building's entry! Maybe the asshole reads it and backs off! You can strike the names and dates, he/she will still know what it means.

    BTW, one more detail. The virus itself does not "fly" but can be suspended in the air with droplets or it can hang itself to particles in the air. That is why a constant flow of fresh air, or a room with a particle filtration system reduces infection. This is something the German government will do: install HEPA filtering machines in schools. On the other hand, a place like a bouldering venue, where they heavily use that white powder, it is probably a place where the virus lingers in the air longer.

    I read it as being only required if the number is above 100. Stairs were outside the venue, doubt they are responsible for it.
  9. The 2020 US Presidential candidates

    I find it hard to believe that 40% of voters are uneducated. You have tens of millions of educated people voting for Trump, so clearly more education would not do anything for it. For that argument to be valid, the vast majority of Trump voters would have to be uneducated, which is not true.   Not only that, the conclusion is not so obvious, please read this article: https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/education-not-income-predicted-who-would-vote-for-trump/   Reminds me of a Portuguese friend who was a member of the right wing christian democratic party and quickly changed to radical left wing when entered the psychology course. His own words: "Nobody would take a right wing psy seriously and I have to make a living".

    There were less than 100, so does not seem applicable.   I guess it is as I suspected: legal, but stupid.
  11. The 2020 US Presidential candidates

    Nice phrase, but I don't think this has anything to do with education. Trump is for many white Americans the last opportunity to maintain a white, Christian power. Because they value that over everything else, they can withstand any stupid thing Trump says or do.   One example: Trump praises Putin or another dictator. His supporters have absolutely no problem with that, by the contrary. Logically, if white Christians are losing vote majority, the only way to regain power is through a non democratic process, like dictatorship. This is not being stupid or uneducated. It is simply a perfectly logic reasoning when they are 100% behind their goal of white Christian power.   Another point is that if, as good voters, you have read Clinton's and Trump's electoral program, you would see that half what Trump wrote there were not bad ideas. But he simply did not execute them.   This is all about race and religion, not education.

    Do you know where I can? And the rules for the space? Thanks! My current assumption is that it was stupid, but legal.

    Ok, your gyms made adjustments. Good for you and them. But what I saw on Wednesday was pure madness! Almost 100 people jam packed in to two rooms, no windows open, you could smell the sweat! Going out, there were 2 staircases of people waiting for the next round!

    Yep. No LIDAR, no HD maps, and yet it works!   Mark this: they just won the autonomous driving race! It will still take 2 years or so to make it robust, Mobileye is probably be as good as they are, but in the end they are the car company with more than 1 million cars on the road ready for it.
