We’re about to enter uncharted waters with regards to unemployment claims. Depending on the duration of the pandemic the same will happen with mortgage and credit defaults.

Those of you with cash on hand should watch the market and the numbers and buy low (whether that’s 6 months from now, or 18 months from now). After the spike in the market, those of you who are still invested should consider getting out when markets open today. Just my $.02.

Well, we're going to have to make a tough decision soon on a few thousand deaths versus a great depression. Which one will have a worse effect? You can't realistically shut down the planet for three months and then just turn the lights back on. Businesses are going to have to re-open sooner than that.

My hope is that we can come out with some medications that will combat the severe symptoms of the disease so that we can manage it for now. If you can get the mortality rate below 1%, then that would at least be something positive.

Must spread some rep.

Love Curb, we might have just got the last episode ever 2 days ago unless they do another season.

Rumor is that the season will be cancelled.

Probably not terrible for the Mavs. We're kinda living and learning. Got our big guys secured and just looking for the next two offseasons to really grow into a power team.

Lakers on the other hand? Mortgaged the next 5 years for this year and the next. They may miss one of their two windows for success.

I hope they don't. We need more solutions for living with this virus versus just cancel everything. Honestly, the world's economy really can't survive this past June 1 as far as I'm concerned. Sitting home being afraid isn't a realistic solution long term.

The new reality is mask wearing, and I'm pretty shocked the CDC told people they didn't need masks for this long. Every person needs an N95 like yesterday, and of course, there is a current shortage but EVERY person needs to get them. I truly believe if every person worse a mask that the numbers would level off considerably.

The RKI ( one of the notable institutes on viruses and influenca), told us, mask were not necessary ( when there was a shortage ). Now, they say, masks can help ...
