"The distinction has confused the Finnish themselves, but it turns out that happiness, at least as it’s defined in this report,
is not a function of how well you express your emotions. Rather, it is a measure of general satisfaction with life and, more important,
the confidence that one lives in a place where people take care of one another" 8)

" 'When people get sick, the first thing in their body that actually gets depleted is vitamin C,'
said Dr. Steven Katz, a naturopathic physician in Scottsdale."

"Dr. Katz said the New York doctors are giving patients around 6,000 milligrams a day through IV and seeing positive results,
but warns that by pill, people shouldn’t take more than 2,000 milligrams of vitamin C per day unless told by their doctor."

Summary: Vitamin C by IV (medical procedure with complementary watchcare) is promising!
but a daily intake of natural Vitamin C (food) may help minimize virus vulnerability. ;)
Also, Vitamin C is water soluble, requiring good hydration for super doses :!:

N95 and N99 masks can also be effective."

of the section of the constitution that requires a majority of lawmakers to be present to conduct official business"

:idea: Massie has a good point ...
if citizens of this democracy still value their Constitution (vote needs to be legal as required by law);
a voting-without-quorum precedence can undermine the Constitution. He may have sacrificed his career

There's a big difference between how the coronavirus is spreading
and how it could spread (such as the virus remaining on surfaces).

:roll: Alarming news/predictions* seem focused on how it could spread,
but how it's actually spreading best determines defensive action. ;)

* effectively intensified by delayed testing! (what's reported
is rate of testing/confirmation - not rate of virus spread) :(

when you're too close to another person. Then change direction or "shelter in place" until the device tells you to move.

In BIG stores, you stay in a control booth and navigate a robot (kids will love shoppin') that gathers your items
... or you operate the robot from your vehicle with your laptop or cell phone (it's OK to tip robots). :roll:
The control booth is automatically fumigated when you leave (part of the shoppin' cost).
