Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

My concern was that you would be too young.

Hey MoAlpha that IHME site you posted for COVID19 projections is interesting, but they have not updated since 4/1 and there is lots more data rolling in. Got any better or more updated sites to suggest?

Here’s another model web site, at least:

https://covidactnow.org

Don’t know whether the inputs differ from the UW one or when they ran it last, but it does give outputs based on different social control scenarios.

airports are empty. Only a couple of restaurants are open in philly and charlotte. I’m catching a ride home now, and there are only 5 passengers on this flight.

Unclear if TN would currently fall under the limited action or poor compliance conditions.

No, guys. The model includes no actual data on what people are doing in a given state. These are the same what ifs for all states. All that differs by state is current estimated cases and number of beds.

I had a Trek sponsorship when they introduced the Matrix rims. A lot of cussing went on with those.

After managing three sub-20 mile rides last week, my wife has asked me to bring her bike up from the workroom. It hasn't seen the road since September 2018. It would be quite a milestone.
