28 of 70 UT Austin 'Spring Breakers' test positive for COVID-19

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Public Health is investigating a large group of people with a cluster of positive COVID-19 cases returning from a Spring Break trip to Mexico, the agency said Tuesday.

APH says about a week-and-a-half ago, the group comprised of approximately 70 adults in their 20s left for a spring break trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Currently, 28 of the 70 have tested positive for COVID-19, and more of them are under public health investigation. The University of Texas at Austin confirmed all 28 people who tested positive were UT students.


KXAN is the local NBC affilate in Austin.

An Alarmist Take on the Corona Virus - SARS-CoV-2, COVID-19

From the YouTuber who posted the video:

German mathematician Daniel Regenberg contacted me to share his data on how many people are likely to get infected. I was very skeptical and did not believe it. But when I checked his numbers against publicly available data, and checked his math, I could not find any flaws. I felt it was important to share this data and he agreed to let me do it.

Corporations can issue stock to raise money instead of grifting the government.

Corporations issue stock to raise money.

Unless there is something that is preventing them from issuing stock (shareholder greed, CEO greed, etc.), a corporation should be issuing stock to raise money instead of taking handouts from the government.

"Chevy Van" 1973

"Chevy Van" is a 1973 song, written and sung by Sammy Johns with instrumental backing provided by Los Angeles-based session musicians from the Wrecking Crew. The song was a hit single in the United States and Canada in 1975, reaching #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and becoming a million seller. It was played primarily on AM Top 40 stations in the 1970s; later re-recordings were done in a country vein.

It details how an unnamed male driver picks up an unnamed female, who then proceeds to eventually seduce him into a one-night stand in the back of his Chevrolet Van. At the end he drops her off "in a town that was so small, you could throw a rock from end to end. A dirt road main street, she walked off in bare feet", and laments "It's a shame I won't be passing through again." The song struck a chord with listeners in the sexually liberated early 1970s when Johns released it.

Nouriel Roubini: the US economy needs a fiscal stimulus of 3% of GDP.

NYU Stern Professor of Economics Nouriel Roubini (aka Dr. Doom), who, in 2006, correctly predicted the housing bubble and the stock market crash of 2008, says the US needs fiscal stimulus of 3% of GDP.


Nouriel Roubini is well recognized for his work, so his warning regarding a global recession and financial crisis shouldn’t be taken lightly. He is one of the few economists who predicted the financial crisis of 2008 correctly, and he could be right this time around as well. In September 2006, Roubini gave a speech in front of economists at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), saying that the U.S. economy will face a once-in-a-lifetime housing bust, plummeting consumer confidence, an oil shock, and a deep recession. https://www.lombardiletter.com/analysis-nouriel-roubini-right-causes-financial-collapse-2020/30284/

US GDP in 2019 was approximately $21,000,000,000,000.

$21,000,000,000,000 x 3% = $630,000,000,000.

There are roughly 260,000,000 adults in the US.

630,000,000,000 / 260,000,000 = $2,423 per adult.

Big Pharma Prepares to Profit From the Coronavirus

As the new coronavirus spreads illness, death, and catastrophe around the world, virtually no economic sector has been spared from harm. Yet amid the mayhem from the global pandemic, one industry is not only surviving, it is profiting handsomely.

“Pharmaceutical companies view Covid-19 as a once-in-a-lifetime business opportunity,” said Gerald Posner, author of “Pharma: Greed, Lies, and the Poisoning of America.” The world needs pharmaceutical products, of course. For the new coronavirus outbreak, in particular, we need treatments and vaccines and, in the U.S., tests. Dozens of companies are now vying to make them.


"...preparing for millions of hospitalizations..."

One slide in a leaked presentation for US hospitals reveals that they're preparing for millions of hospitalizations as the outbreak unfolds:
