Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

So can they not just start selling food items also or something else that's considered essential? Or is there too much bureaucracy involved? I've seen small companies reinvent themselves elsewhere.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

This month's editorial in US Pharmacist discusses encouraging results with Vitamin D - another piece of the puzzle in the ongoing back and forth between "It's beneficial" and "It doesn't help", but now with strong documentation. https://www.uspharmacist.com/article/vitamin-d-might-lower-covid19-dea...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

Rune, same here in San Antonio. Yeah Lider, Tottus, Santa Isabel, Mayorista 10 and the two branches of a local supermarket chain can sell booze while all the PYME outlets are screwed. So can they not just start selling food items also or something else that's considered essential? Or is there too m...

Re: America on Fire

What do they intend doing with it? Maybe use it in their calculations to see what percentage of the population still believe the clown show? There have only been two candidates in the last 4 years who had the people's enthusiasm to pack out arenas. Trump and Bernie. Bernie was not allowed to be in ...

Re: America on Fire

Anyone paying attention to Seattle? The last time I paid attention to an armed group staking claim to territory owned by the slave masters, things didn't end well. Well, to be honest all land is owned by the slave masters, but that's getting into the details. Seattle.png seattle2.png Sounds interes...

Re: Should Schools Charge Less for Now?

I asked our school to give me 15%-20% from June and mentioned I was losing my job at the end of June and send a polite email and eventually, only after I followed up several weeks later, they agreed to 15% less monthly payment from June onwards until the return to school.
