quote [ One Twitter user tweeted that ?there are angry ladies all over Yankee Candle?s site reporting that none of the candles they just got had any smell at all.? ]

-1 can't smell.

Dr. Opioid: The Well-Heeled Philadelphia Doctor Harboring a Dark Secret

quote [ William O?Brien was a well-heeled doctor with a thriving Philadelphia medical practice. He was also at the center of a massive painkiller supply chain run by an outlaw biker gang. ]

The image of the opioid epidemic is that it is something that happens out in rural areas and undercover - can't get more mainstream than downtown Philly.

is you chicken like Tyson?

Saints once did abortions ? it was a lesser sin than oral sex

quote [ Today?s repeated refrain that ?you can?t be Catholic and pro-choice? indicates an ignorance of history and a disregard for the views of the majority of Catholics themselves, who hold much more progressive values than church leaders generally allow, including in Ireland. ]

Sorry, another religiously motivated stance on the subject

Poland's abortion ban is a cynical attempt to exploit religion by a failing leader

quote [ Kaczy?ski?s populist move aims to keep the Catholic church on side, but mass protests suggest he?s gone too far, say historians Karolina Wigura and Jaros?aw Kuisz ]

So while pondering on how to neutrally post some hiphop track, this current protest movement in Poland seemed a more relevant hook.

Music in extended.

Hundreds of people waited hours in the cold for buses after Trump rally in Omaha

quote [ Trump campaign officials said they had enough buses ready nearby to shuttle people back to their cars, but said a larger-than-expected crowd slowed the buses return. Paramedics took six people to local hospitals "due to a variety of medical conditions," said Tim Conahan, police chief for the Omaha Airport Authority. ]

The charter bus company that was going to give them rides back reported that the credit card given them by the Trump campaign was declined, repeatedly.

Never has a campaign been so frequently a metaphor for itself.

FAQs on Protecting Yourself from Aerosol Transmission

quote [ Where should I stand around someone with a poorly fitting mask? ]

This is a very good resource! Jason Kottke has a nice summary with links to some background on the creators.

The smoke analogy helps explain examples like the thumb: a well-fitting cloth mask might capture your breath better than an industrial one.

On Being Bipolar | The Walrus

quote [ There are many benefits that one gets, being the good sick. And there are compromises one makes to remain the good sick. And then there is the fear of becoming the contagion ]

Somehow these reads make me value my own, emotionally less complicated life a little more. Seems like acting as a projection for other people is at the centre of this article though.

This Overlooked Variable Is the Key to the Pandemic

quote [ Japan thus carried out a cluster-busting approach, including undertaking aggressive backward tracing to uncover clusters. Japan also focused on ventilation, counseling its population to avoid places where the three C?s come together?crowds in closed spaces in close contact, especially if there?s talking or singing?bringing together the science of overdispersion with the recognition of airborne aerosol transmission, as well as presymptomatic and asymptomatic transmission. ]

Somehow many of these reasonable articles originate in the same magazine, oh well.

The gist is that the reproduction number might not be the best metric for the spread, as it lags on clustered outbreaks and that instead of tracing current contacts, backtracking clusters seems a more efficient measure.
