Govt increases New Zealand's coronavirus COVID-19 alert level

If only we had a president like this... oh, wait, we should. Thanks Vlad, and FOX, and Republicans

Sure, he wants "America" back in business by Easter

NEW: What happened before @realdonaldtrump called for re-evaluating lockdowns? His company had to close 6 of its top 7 revenue-generating clubs and hotels.

I didn’t realize until today how corona closures have hit @realdonaldtrump ’s biggest revenue generators. Six out of the top seven. (And the one that’s open is doing pretty bad, too).


"Wartime president" is going to call the "All Clear"...

...before all of the waves of bombers have passed.

Result: a lot of people caught out in the open, and nobody trusting the "All Clear" again.

Quick question about RW argle-bargle point

It looks like they're trying to hold a halo above their heads by claiming the Democrats are attempting to pile a lot of Green New Deal stuff into a relief package.

Is it pure Base Buzzword Bingo, or are there some provisions where if you look at them sideways while squinting real hard and clapping your hands even harder that you could get enough GND to have a pebble of factoid in that mountain of BS?

'Nature is taking back Venice': wildlife returns to tourist-free city

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/mar/20/nature-is-taking-back-venice-wildlife-returns-to-tourist-free-city

Look down into the waters of the Venice canals today and there is a surprising sight – not just a clear view of the sandy bed, but shoals of tiny fish, scuttling crabs and multicoloured plant-life.

“The water is blue and clear,” said Gloria Beggiato, who owns the celebrated Metropole Hotel a few steps from St Mark’s square and has a view over the Venice lagoon. “It is calm like a pond, because there are no more waves caused by motorised boats transporting day-tripper tourists. And of course, the giant cruise ships have disappeared.”

Under Venice’s strict rules of self-confinement to prevent the spread of the coronavirus – all journeys but a trip to walk the dog or buy food are forbidden – the ancient city has been transformed almost overnight.

The clarity of the water has improved dramatically. Swans and cormorants have returned to dive for fish they can now see. At the Piazzale Roma vaporetto stop, ducks have even made a nest. “Someone has put up a sign saying, ‘Don’t tread on the duck eggs,’’” Beggiato said. “All totally unimaginable a while ago.”

Trump equates sickness with weakness...

...and even acknowledging sickness under his presidency means he is weak.

That is the pathetically idiotic line of his so-called thinking.

It's really as simple as that.

Sorry, TOON posts suspended pending image hotlinking issue resolution

Hi all.

In case you haven't seen the announcement, the admins have temporarily disabled image hotlinking (i.e., seeing an image from another site in DU, not just its URL) while they work on a potential security issue that could exploit it. As one of us who was here during the 2016 hack and ensuing down time, I don't mind the inconvenience at all. Go Team DU! Patch that bug!

However, I'm not going to spend 30-40 minutes compiling a bunch of raw URLs, either. So, I'm suspending my TOON posts until the issue gets sorted out.

To tide you over, below is my source list. Check them out yourselves for your daily fix.
