  1. Chest CT images of COVID-19 lung involvement in a 44-year old Huanan Seafood worker. Day 13 of symptom progression (died 7 days later) The patches are (predominantly) diffuse alveolar damage. That leads to edema (a fluid build up in the lungs,) and the beginnings of fibrosis (excess connective tissue.) Due to all of the replication and damage going on, there is also a build up up extra proteins and dead cells which clog up the lungs.
  2. Isn't PlutoTV better already though? In a way it's just the past repeating itself..... back in 1985 we had the choice to buy cable with no ads / or less ads.... OR just turn on the regular TV and look at the TV guide. Here we are back at it.....although this time no rabbit ears... LOL
  3. Redbox Free Live TV) for some users. You don't need to sign in -- you just have to use Redbox's website or mobile app to tune in. You'll eventually see the service reach other platforms where Redbox is available, including smart TVs, Apple TV boxes and Roku players.
  4. Chinese Propaganda Outlet Confirms WHO Team Will Not Be Allowed to Visit Wuhan or Hubei
      Hello guest!
  5. Xi Jinping Knew Of The Coronavirus 2019-nCoV Threat Weeks Earlier Than Expected
      Hello guest!
  6. Interesting to hear actual Virologists discuss this Coronavirus...... much different type of conversation that most of us have about it.... very enlightening... and scary at the same time.

  8. Naval University of Engineering (PLA Uni) announced lockdown 18 days before government announced epidemic.
  9. CV is no joke... "My aunt and uncle were Americans on the Princess Cruise ship in Japan. They are obsessively healthy people in their 60s and early 70s. They are now both in the ICU in the hospital in Japan. My uncle is having a hard time breathing and my aunt is a week behind him with all her symptoms. This virus is no joke. These are people who go hiking and walking for miles everyday. They had zero health problems. They looked younger than their age. Now they are fighting for their life. If they are both ok and make it through I can’t imagine the level of PTSD from this." - Reddit comment
  10. The average person needs to see something about 9 times before it reaches the brains consideration zone, which is why companies bombard us with advertising non stop... Eventually it works
  11. "The reason it's so hard for most people to understand is that most people don't really understand money. Money isn't wealth. It's an accounting system used to facilitate the exchange of wealth. (The paradox of money is that while everyone wants it, no one actually wants it - they want the stuff they can buy with it!) Many people are put off by the fact that Bitcoins are 'just data'. But that's what ALL money is, information! More precisely, money is a means for credibly conveying information about value given but not yet received (or at least not yet received in a form in which it can directly satisfy a person's wants or needs). To put it yet another way, money is a ledger. With fiat currencies like the dollar, that ledger is centralized. And that gives the central authority responsible for maintaining that ledger tremendous power, power that history has proven will inevitably be abused. With Bitcoin, the ledger is decentralized. And that means that no one individual or entity has the power to arbitrarily create new units (thereby causing inflation), freeze (or seize) your account, or block a particular payment from being processed. We've had decentralized money before. After all, no one can simply print new gold into existence. And the 'ledger' of gold is distributed because the physical gold itself (the 'accounting entries' in the metaphor) is distributed. But with gold, that decentralization comes at a heavy price (literally). The physical nature of gold makes it hugely inefficient for global transactions. And this is why bitcoin is important! It is the first currency in the world that is both decentralized and digital. It is more reliably scarce than gold and more private and transactionally efficient than "modern" digital banking. This is why people are excited about bitcoin, it has the potential to completely revolutionize money." I thought I'd share it with you. Have a good Sunday everybody!
  12. the 5G robotic scanner at airports in China concerns me.... I notice governments are creating these devices for mass control of populations rather than for preventive healthcare.

    If China REALLY cared for their people and had this technology.... why did they wait until now to deploy it? Weren't there other pathogens before this that they should be protecting against?

  13. Add facial recognition and laser weapons and we could start zapping all pestilence from society. Sounds a lot like Skynet forming a new node.
