  1. And then there's this from YEG...interesting! Clinical trial for 1-minute COVID-19 test will be done inside Edmonton's airport https://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/clinical-trial-for-1-minute-covid-19-test-will-be-done-inside-edmonton-s-airport-1.5118656?cache=yesclipId104062
  2. More news on the Covid-19 pre-flight testing front... United Airlines Becomes First US Carrier to Make COVID-19 Tests Available to Customers Starting on October 15, customers traveling on United from San Francisco International Airport to Hawaiʻi will have the option to take a rapid test at the airport or a self-collected, mail-in test ahead of their trip. The launch coincides with Hawaiʻi’s start of a pre-travel testing program that enables travelers to get a COVID-19 test no earlier than 72 hours prior to their flight arrival in Hawai‘i to avoid the 14-day mandatory qua
  3. Boy, is Pelosi ever desperate...she sees the writing on the wall with Biden. "I don't think that there should be any debates," Pelosi said out of the blue at a news conference at the Capitol, saying she doesn't want the debates to be "an exercise in skullduggery." https://www.foxnews.com/politics/pelosi-says-biden-shouldnt-debate-trump-i-wouldnt-legitimize-a-conversation-with-him
  4. More good news...**(cost is estimated to be around $5 per test) Game Changer. https://www.abbott.com/corpnewsroom/product-and-innovation/detect-covid-19-in-as-little-as-5-minutes.html DETECT COVID-19 IN AS LITTLE AS 5 MINUTES Abbott has received emergency use authorization (EUA) from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the fastest available molecular point-of-care test for the detection of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), delivering positive results in as little as five minutes and negative results in 13 minutes. What makes this test so different is where it c
  5. I think that is good news, however I would set up the airport testing for passengers prior to departure...domestic and international. Much better to head it off in a travellers home area before they subject the flight crew and other passengers to the risk.
  6. From the same article... “They had a gang violence task force that are no longer funded, which is unfortunate because as soon as that defunding happened all of this really peaked up,” Sulimani told Fox 12." To paraphrase Wolfhunter...what did they think was going to happen. Morons.
  7. On anger; “Keep this thought handy when you feel a fit of rage coming on—it isn’t manly to be enraged. Rather, gentleness and civility are more human, and therefore manlier. A real man doesn’t give way to anger and discontent, and such a person has strength, courage, and endurance—unlike the angry and complaining. The nearer a man comes to a calm mind, the closer he is to strength.” – Marcus Aurelius I know this thread is about M.A. quotes...however regarding anger there was another great quote by Seneca (who time-wise was around just before Marcus, and was probably a great influence
  8. Texas Lt. Gov. Patrick, spot on... https://video.foxnews.com/v/6171271732001
  9. The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts...M.A. Can be a little hard to follow at times!
  10. Not so. Like most things scientific there are varying opinions. Rather than the general public (in Kip's example) having to prove 5G is harmful, the onus should be on 5G proponents to prove it is safe. Scientific American (partial excerpt): https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/we-have-no-reason-to-believe-5g-is-safe/ We Have No Reason to Believe 5G Is Safe The technology is coming, but contrary to what some people say, there could be health risks Since 5G is a new technology, there is no research on health effects, so we are “flying blind” t
  11. I've always enjoyed this clip from your reference above...
  12. Dan Bongino is a former NYPD Officer and Secret Service Agent. His comments on defunding the police in this video are spot on....particularly around the 6:15 mark. https://www.foxnews.com/media/dan-bongino-insanity-defund-police
  13. I'm a big fan as well. I'd love to try an Avalon, currently on the hunt for a nice acoustic...although a little cheaper!
