  1. Feeling this might end up in the Debate Forum... https://www.foxnews.com/media/pa-hospitals-use-weighted-lottery-to-distribute-lifesaving-remdesivir-in-favor-of-low-income-patients While it will be blasted because it is Fox, you can also read the Pennsylvania Dept of Health website: https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/disease/coronavirus/Pages/Guidance/Ethical-Allocation-Framework.aspx
  2. Well, if you glare or roll your eyes at someone the wrong way, dark goggles could prevent them from seeing your eyes and exhibiting violence in your direction.
  3. The only state I am aware that banned its use was Ohio, but they quickly rescinded that regulation. The ban was specifically for COVID use. I do wonder if the Ohio Board of Pharmacy, or the pharmacy board of any state, has the legal authority to unilaterally ban the dispensing of a legal medication.
  4. Most D3 conferences have shut down all fall sports. Some D2 and a handfull of D1 are shutdown. Many colleges still active are limiting to in-conference games only. Still active are generally in-conference only. NCAA seems on the verge of cancelling all championship except conference. All that said, if high school games are kept local, and shorten the season, they could safely play....at least in our neck of the woods. I assume no fans, incuding parents, but schools could livestream games.
  5. Glad I can make you laugh. Not enough joy in the world. I am fairly certain I will be able to afford the occasional pack of gum or two in my retirement years, despite ignoring your sage advice, using my current financial plan.
  6. Maybe you chose poorly when selecting a commercial bank. I get much better rates and fewer fees and less hassles with my commercial bank than my credit union. Guess is you get your knickers ripped cause you are a poor customer or an easy target. Maybe both.
  7. Tried the local credit union. Wasn't impressed. I like my local bank. I know everyone there and they treat me well.
  8. Coinstar. Up to a 12% fee. But, the fee is set by the store. During the TP Shortage of 2020, one of the local Walmart managers was joking about the surge in Coinstar usage because it was easier to wipe your butt with a dollar bill than a handfull of quarters. Banks, around here, as far as I know, don't have counting machines for public use in lobbies. Few banks accept loose change in large quantities from the general public or will also charge a fee. My bank will accept my periodic gallon jug(s) of change dropoff for no fee.
  9. Huh? Most banks I know remained opened, just the lobbies were closed. You could still make transactions at drive-through windows. Businesses remaining open could still make deposits and get money needed for change.
  10. The NFL has proposed testing every player, every day with a 24hr turnaround time. Team staff will be tested as well. This means the NFL will be consuming between 4000 and 5000 tests per day with a 24hr turnaround time. No doubt some lab is making big bucks to do all this. For those that want to be tested or must be tested, this is a real slap in the face. I know a few folks who have had to sit at home, without pay, waiting for over a week for their results to return. I like football as much as the next guy, but it is kind of twisted when frontline healthcare workers can't be tested on a regular basis, but a NFL player can. Not sure how often MLB and NHL players are being tested.
  11. On a semi-related side note, the PSAC has cancelled all fall sports and sports in general up to the end of 2020.
  12. Maybe just too sexy for his pants? I found worse.. ..
