    More....still SMH

    https://nypost.com/2020/03/20/richa...or-selling-stocks-after-coronavirus-briefing/

    Feinstein, a California Democrat, sold $500,001 to $1 million worth of stock in a company called Allogene Therapeutics on Jan. 31, less than a month before panic about the virus caused markets to plunge, Senate records show. Her husband sold $1,000,001 to $5 million worth of Allogene shares on Feb. 18, according to financial disclosures.

    And Inhofe, an Oklahoma Republican, dumped as much as $400,000 worth of stock on Jan. 27, records show. He sold shares in five different companies including Apple, PayPal and Brookfield Asset Management, according to a disclosure report.

    Feinstein spokesman Tom Mentzer said her husband made the transactions, not the senator herself.

    FM's 'stay in' warning as virus cases rise

    Nicola Sturgeon has warned people to stay at home this weekend as coronavirus cases continue to rise.

    The number of positive cases in Scotland has risen to 322, a rise of 56 from Thursday. The number of deaths remains at six.

    The first minister urged the public to continue to follow the recommended measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

    She warned young people the advice to limit socialising "is not optional".

    Ms Sturgeon told a media briefing that she understood they were asking people to "fundamentally change the way we live our lives".

    "And these changes will become more apparent and more difficult as we head into the weekend," she added.

    "There will be some of you who are wanting to head out to the pub for a final night out or a meal out with friends.

    "But my guidance to you is crystal clear - please do not do this. You must not consider this vital health advice to be merely optional."

    She said she was concerned that young people would be disappointed that they will not be able to meet friends over the weekend.

    "But again I cannot be clearer," she said. "Please do not think this advice just applies to other people and not to you."

    The public have been asked to reduce social contact, work from home and stay away from crowded places.

    Those who are most vulnerable should stay at home as much as possible.

    I wish Governor Cuomo was my Governor. Wow. He’s fantastic.

    10,000 tests JUST LAST NIGHT!!!
    (Compare to 9,000 tests TOTAL to-date as of yesterday in California!!)

    He is so well-spoken and pro-active and shows such leadership for his state.

    NY

    Gov Cuomo:

    WA - 1000 cases
    CA - 1000 and change cases

    NY - 7000 cases

    Gov Cuomo: perhaps, NY may be testing at a multiple of the other states -
    We know we are doing more tests per capita, but don't know what the actual infection rate is

    NY has the tightest controls in the country

    Cuomo just announced a moratorium on evictions for 90 days.

    He also said we are all on “various levels of quarantine”. Moo.

    Yes, he has been wonderful. IMO, he is literally the only governer in the entire country that jumped all over this crisis.

    Other governers are all playing catch up.

    Yes, I had an oddly sleepless night, I just think its Pandemic Anxiety

    One thing that really does help me is listening to wonderful relaxing music when I go to sleep.

    Instead of listening to BBC Radio (which is just updating all the COVID-19 news), I went back to listening to an old favorite:

    Music from Hearts of Space. It's a subscription streaming site with a huge library of curated "new age", some classical, some ethnic music, without vocal lyrics. They create a set based on a theme, of 8-10 pieces that last about an hour total. I'm usually asleep befor it ends.

    The moderator, Stephen Hill is part of the famous Windham-Hill duo and has the most relaxing voice possible.

    I encourage you to look at their free content and consider this as a real break from your activities or a real sleep aid. You can also find it as an app.
