Norway under 400 confirmed cases of CV per day
Finland under 500 cases per day.
Norway 5000 cases / day.

Sweden with an infection rate 7x greater than Finland and 6x Norway.
Quite a success.

This is useless information when compared to the US geography and the makeup of its society. But thanks for sharing. It'll make the likelihood of taking a Viking ocean cruise in the Baltic Sea more enticing for some.

I disagree.

It is illustrative of the differences in how things are handled and the results they get.

We have seen the same things from one state to another in the US, as well.

So, question. I live in one of three Northern NJ counties which border each other, and each has a far greater (two to three times as many people per square mile) population density than LA County. So, wtf is wrong with California that it is struggling far more than these counties here?

What's that smell? Rudy?

https://www.businessinsider.com/rudy-giuliani-fart-on-camera-confirmed-by-michigan-state-representative-2020-12

The fart heard around the political universe from Rudy Giuliani this week was no deep fake, according to a Michigan lawmaker.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney went viral overnight Wednesday over a clip of him apparently passing gas during an election hearing. Later, a second video emerged showing a different fart.


This information is more useful than the Scandinavian COVID-19 numbers, clearly.

Fuck you, josh. People need a laugh. too, you morbid bastard.

He's comparing Sweden to other Scandic countries.  Making a point about the dubious efficacy of the "herd immunity" approach,  which Sweden has finally abandoned.

All fine, but becoming an irrelevant tale, given the emergence of the vaccines.

It really isn't.

It has both application to the hundreds of thousands of additional Swedish citizens who will catch COVID-19 between now and the vaccine, compared with so many fewer in its neighbors and to any states willing to learn from it in the US.

But it also instructive for future pandemics.

The former vice president has picked Antony Blinken to be his Secretary of State and Janet Yellen to be his Treasury secretary, and the frontrunner to be Biden's Secretary of Defense is Flournoy. All three are White.

I'll try to come back to this question after my class that starts in 45 minutes, but perhaps the ~25% greater percentage of infected individuals in NJ than CA might have something to do with it.

China Bought Dominion In October


Russia bought trump in 1987. The GOP threw themselves in as a bonus gift in 2016.

“All cybersecurity experts who have given electronic voting machines any thought agree that these machines have got to go,” Halderman says.

President Trump also agrees, having stated in the past that there should always be paper backups to go along with every vote, even when people vote electronically. This can be done both by printing out a receipt for voters, as well as keeping a paper log at polling places.

None of this occurred in 2020, however, especially in nearly every key swing state where President Trump was leading, only to have it stolen away from him with mystery votes for Biden that were delivered in the middle of the night.

Amazingly, the same Dominion voting machines used in the 2020 election can be purchased by anyone on eBay. This is how Halderman obtained the ones he used for his mock election.

“These were archetypes of the very same equipment used today in many states – Georgia, and parts of Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Florida and Pennsylvania,” wrote Nicole Casal Moore for The Michigan Engineer News Center.

The moral of the story is that these Dominion machines should not be used in American elections, or in any elections for that matter. Halderman says so, and so does every other election expert out there who knows how these machines work and how easily they can be hacked

I happen to agree that the Dominion machines should go.

But the Chinese news is old, not new, Kid.
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/all/chinese-parts-hidden-ownership-growing-scrutiny-inside-america-s-biggest-n1104516

Nor are theirs the only voting machines that should go, and I've been saying that for years.

They are vulnerable, which is not the same as hacked.

He will, but in this case, he is only guilty of consuming the news late.
