Watch It. Only 5 minutes. You will feel better, just like me! Don’t miss the part that starts at 3 minutes. It made me cry. There Is Hope!!
Interviewer (Stephanie Sy):
Social distancing may have defined 2020, but it didn’t stop spontaneous moments of joy from springing up and making us feel connected.
One of those moments was captured on video.
Avalina Whitlow, a (3 year old) toddler in Portland, Oregon, and her neighborhood mailman dance together every day while separated by the window in her family’s living room. It’s a video that has gotten millions of views, including the 30 times I watched it.
And Avalina, her father, David, who made the video, and Ian Simon, their mailman, joins us now.
Very effective vaccines will be available to many people by early winter. Phase I is for healthcare workers and others, next older people, and others. Note: the final decisions on what groups are in the phases have not been determined.
The Bad: The pandemic is out of control everywhere, just like the 1908 Spanish flu in the fall. I live in the Bay Area, which has always had strict requirements. Everyone wears face masks and does social distancing but cases are going way up.
My Holiday season advice for this year:
Skip getting together this year. By this time next year, probably earlier, many of us will be vaccinated, especially older people at high risk.
Do not get together with anyone outside your household. That is what we are doing in my family. Of course, we have a scheduled big Zoom meet up with all of us!!
Do not celebrate with anyone who is high risk, such as older people.
Posted on youtube 8/31/20 34 minutes. Tiffany Haddish is an actress and comedian. There was lots of smiling and laughing. She asked about all the stuff on his wall in the the rear. A question I always have ;> Quite a contrast to Fauci’s usually very serious interviews! Dr. Fauci answers questions many people have. I get these questions a lot when people find out I write about Covid.
If you, or someone you know, want understandable explanations from a widely recognized expert for questions that a lot of people have, email the link to them.
The first question was “Was the coronavirus manufactured in a lab or did it come from bats? “
You may have seen the “official” chart of CovidRisk Rating Charts, such as going to the grocery store, gym, or restaurants. This “alternate reality” graphic is Lotsa fun and includes weird stuff such as risk rankings for shoplifting at a grocery store and ax catching contest!! This Covid Risk Rating chart is very funny and sorta weird ;>
Excerpt: Vocalist Scott Hoying of the a cappella band Pentatonix performed a brilliant parody of the song “Alexander Hamilton” from the incredibly popular musical Hamilton.
The parody substitutes the original lyrics with the name, accomplishments, and expertise of acclaimed immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci. It also quite appropriately poses the question “why aren’t we listening to him?”. Hoying wrote the song along with comedy writers Brad Silnutzer and Joey Orton.
My name is Doctor Anthony Fauci and there are a million things I haven’t cured, but just you wait, just you wait. Just one quote from Parody of the Song ‘Alexander Hamilton’ With Dr. Fauci.
My comments: I am a Big Fan of Fauci, but he does tend to be a bit serious when speaking… Finally some humor plus some unexpected fotos. 359,221 views. Warning: Mentions Trump very briefly. I can’t always be NPA (No Politics Allowed) ;> Fauci is also NPA.
