It's not ideal and a lot more needs to be done, but Republicans are the hold up. Particularly Mitch McConnell.
This is exactly the type of case that could have benefited from the activation of the Defense Production Act.
When the Select Committee on the COVID-19 Disaster gets underway next year in the Biden administration, all of these deadly missteps will come to light. And the former AG Barr won't be able to cover it up. #VoteBlue
In the early days of the pandemic, the U.S. government turned down an offer to manufacture millions of N95 masks in America:
I'm taking a break from my light project.
I'm fairly disappointed in the CIEXYZ colour sensors I've tried so far. None of them will output correct XYZ colours without correction matrices. The sensor I'm currently using does come factory calibrated, but clearly not precisely enough, because when I try to capture saturated primary colours, the calibrated output errors out because it's out of range... which shouldn't be possible in the CIEXYZ colour space...
My doctor says I need to contact NAV, the Norwegian welfare agency, to get something that we call Work Clarification Benefits, a kind of benefit you receive with the intent of them helping you fit into the workforce.
I don't want a fucking 9-to-5 job. I want the freedom to create good stuff.
I'd gladly work on something like Ardour or Krita if it could sustain me. I have skills within the fields of digital signal processing and image processing that could be put to good use there.
The jungle, by Upton Sinclair was read by me in community college for history class in the 1980s. It left impression on me since then. With what is happening with the meatpacking plants and the lack of protection for workers reminded me of this book. Read it.

We are putting meat above the lives of fellow Americans.

Florida will not let allow the release of the true numbers of Covid-19 deaths. They are hiding the truth to make it look rosier than it is. Who does that help?, not the people of Florida but helps Trump look a little better. He stinks to high heaven and nothing will make him smell better. Send him (Trump) packing in November
Congratulations to the winners of the Ohio primaries.
Also, voting by mail works. The majority of voters support it and trust it.
The Week: Joe Biden wins Ohio Primary and So Does Mail-In Voting:
Physicians don’t think it’s safe for people to gather in DC, just like everywhere else with a lot of potential for COVID spread.
But leave it to Mitch McConnell to risk it to try and confirm a couple of unqualified Trump nominees. #voteblue
