  1. I visit friends in the area and had to ask what was up with the racket. Feel sorry for you folks that are permanently near it. I live on a street with over 50 dogs in a two block area. House dogs, not kenneled, and it's nothing like that.
  2. Panaderia Scandinavia has various types of rye. They slice on request. Centro Laguna Mall, across from Walmart. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g499405-d10546311-Reviews-Panaderia_Scandinavia-Ajijic.html
  3. The WHO has walked back that quote above from Monday that asymptomatic carriers don't spread Covid 19. There's a big breaking article in WaPo, and I get a lovely paywall there so that's out as a source. . KTLA.com: “What I was referring to yesterday in the press conference were very few studies — some two or three studies that had been published that actually try to follow asymptomatic cases, so people who are infected, over time, and then look at all of their contacts and see how many additional people were infected,” Van Kerkhove said. “And that’s a very small subset of studies. So I was responding to a question at the press conference. I wasn’t stating a policy of WHO or anything like that,” she said. “Because this is a major unknown, because there are so many unknowns around this, some modeling groups have tried to estimate what is the proportion of asymptomatic people that may transmit.” https://ktla.com/news/nationworld/who-walks-back-comments-about-rare-asymptomatic-transmission-of-coronavirus-calling-it-misunderstanding/
  4. Excellent resource for evaluating risk. Thanks for posting.
  5. You're not sure where you saw it, but you'll post it here as if it's legit? Why don't you guys make a section called Political Musings or something along those lines and stop with the contortions, pretending that what you say isn't political, but anyone disagreeing with you is.
  6. Death rate is higher in younger people in emerging countries. "A closer look at the data raises questions about the widely held idea that COVID-19 is mainly dangerous for the elderly. Of Brazil's victims, 69 percent were aged 60 or older, compared with 95 percent in Spain and Italy, according to official statistics." https://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2020/05/22/in-brazil-covid-19-hitting-young-people-harder.html
  7. ICYMI Lakeside Shopping Services, which is a weekly Costco order and delivery service, is open to new customers again. Questions and Information requests should be referred to them and not this thread. https://www.lakeside-ss.com/ The weekly deadline for orders is Sunday, 6 p.m.
  8. The shop was opened yesterday when I drove by.
  9. One of the issues with herd immunity theory is that infection survivors must be immune to reoccurrence of the virus. This is not confirmed with corona virus. "After testing different scenarios, the Harvard group concluded that their projections of how many people end up getting covid-19 in the coming years depended “most crucially” on “the extent of population immunity, whether immunity wanes, and at what rate.” In other words, the critical factor in projecting the path of the outbreak is also a total unknown."

  10. Naw. It's okay, Rick. I'm good. I'm figuring out what media is censoring the news. Making a list for myself. So I don't get misled. To be thorough, I'm starting at the bottom. Paint chips. Maybe oil paints. Edit: Bad choice to start. Too granular. A bit boring. But cleared as misleading media to my satisfaction. Well, I wasn't mislead, YMMV. I'm done with the vetting of media though. My bad. I don't have the patience. I'll just blunder around, evaluating media as it pops up.
  11. MC, seriously? "Americans and Europeans have had enough of this failed policy". Lots of polls available when you google. This one 87% of Americans support stay at home. I could have chose from 3 others with the same results. There is a tiny minority of protesters in the US. Certain political interests and media are trying to make them look mainstream. Not even close. https://www.forbes.com/sites/jackbrewster/2020/04/22/americans-overwhelmingly-support-stay-at-home-restrictions-new-poll-finds/#3cdd78762e12
  12. I do understand that the world is trying to grapple with these questions. The lock down is not endless. Authorities everywhere are trying to save lives based on the best information they can get at the moment. https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-lockdowns-successful-evidence-from-around-the-world-2020-4?r=MX&IR=T
  13. This is good, balanced info to add to Ian's point. It was complied by researchers. They add cardio as part of prep also, so your entire system is stronger, better able to fight for you. https://necsi.edu/respiratory-health-for-better-covid-19-outcomes
  14. Two doctors with sketchy data aren't equal to the other side of the question. This goes through the data, from a left position given the source. https://www.alternet.org/2020/04/a-pair-of-doctors-just-proved-that-medical-training-doesnt-keep-you-from-being-amazingly-ignorant/ The issue has been politicized based on its nature. Also it is being discussed as such here. I thought politics where verboten on this board. Why the exception for this issue?
  15. Chris Hayes on MSNBC spent a segment on these guys tonight (Tuesday). He had epidemiologists on who did refute their position and questioned their integrity. The show will repeat tonight if anyone is interested.
  16. It sounds crazy to expats, living here as senor singles or in couples. It might not be a hardship at all for large extended Mexican families. All the basic supply issues would generally be easily handled by the younger generations.
  17. What a great find, Ferret. I recognized his name and logo from the "Moving Art" series on Netflix. It is this wonderful cinematography, mostly or all landscapes and he matches it with different musicians and types of music. There is no spoken word, so it's not this type of meditation, but beautiful and calming.
  18. Superlake has also tucked away reasonably priced breakfast cereals. The 200p imports are where they always were. Lower priced Mexican brands are at the end of the aisle and where the cheaper cookies used to be in the corner.
  19. The silver lining: If we die of a contagious illness, we won't be in good health. We might be dead, but our train of logic will be impeccable.
  20. Could you be some specific? What is the problem or issue? That's a pretty broad condemnation. I'm not putting you down. I'm personally interested in the answer.
  21. You're going to have trouble figuring out the speed from Telmex in that area. I had 3 mbps for ages and got bumped to 20 tops. The clerk at Telmex said she lived a few blocks from me, presumably was on the same server and couldn't get the increase. Also she couldn't get an explanation that satisfied her on why. Based on people posting on this forum, I know what some other people are still stuck at 3mbps. (Which is unstable on weekends and evenings when people are streaming. I used to call it hiccuping disconnects) Start by taking the exact address where you plan to move to Telmex and see if they can give you information.
  22. Yeah. It's a crap shoot. When Ilox first made their offer, I had 3 mbps from Telmex. That's not enough for streaming internet content. Barely enough for online games. I got constant disconnects on weekends. Out of desperation tried Telecable also. That was a bust, because... Telecable. So that summer after Ilox took contracts, Telmex suddenly offered some parts of SAT faster service. Some parts. People a few blocks apart are getting different speeds, that old 3 mbps. But I finally got lucky and got 10 and then 20 mbps. I'm sure these better speeds were forced by Ilox's entry into the market. Now, if I still had 3 mbps, I'd be keeping that Ilox contract and put a lot of energy into working with them. So I'm dragging on Ilox a bit now, because I can afford to speedwise, but I am eternally grateful to Tom for working with them and bringing them into the area. It made a huge impact on the quality of my internet service.
