[Red State} Apparently, the guy couldn’t keep himself from calling together other party people for a pandemic-prohibited bash — twice.
Officials didn’t appreciate Shawn’s outgoing personality, so he was arrested.
His crime x2, as per the Charles County State’s Attorney’s Office: failure to comply with an emergency order.
As noted by The Daily Caller, the gregarious guy was sentenced by a district court judge to one year in prison.
Beyond his time in the joint, Shawn’ll enjoy three additional years of unsupervised probation.
No word on how many cases Shawn caused [from his March parties], but if Maryland follows New York’s lead in the future of our seemingly endless lockdown, we may see a situation where a man is released from prison because of the coronavirus, who went to prison because of the coronavirus.
A disease that 99.997% of those under 20 survive, and 99.98% of those 20-49 survive, 99.5^ of those 50-69 survive, and only the 70+ are at very high risk at 94.7%. And this does not even account for the health issues in the US like Obesity, Diabetes and heart/lung disease. If you are otherwise healthy, the numbers are even better than that.
32 million. Thas roughly 6400 possible fatalities below 50 or so, or maybe as many as 9,000 depending on the age distribution - and discounts the newer treatments and modalities for managing the disease, like not blowing up and damagining their lungs with a ventilator like the US was doing in NY.
The majority of cases never even show symptoms. And the disease itself is mutating to become more easily spread but less acute and less deadly, as predicted.
The age group of my grandchildren (0-24) contributed 0.22% of the deaths with an average of 2.82 comorbidities. My children's group (35-44) added 2.02% with an average of 2.66 comorbidities. My age group (65-74) kicked in 21.43% with 2.96 comorbidities. Over 75 (74-85 and 85+) have 57.59% with 2.88 and 2.68 comorbidities.
Deaths across all age groups have 2.66 to 2.96 comorbidities - remarkably consistent, IMHO.
I do not take this lightly, being in this this next group, but 79% of the deaths are folks over 65.
The most common cormorbidities are other (including at least 23 codes), pneumonia, and respiratory failure. For my kids and grandkids, obesity if fourth most common, and hypertension in my age group.
This is all very boring for my family, because they didn't read it in the media, (or it's too much information) but it's all out there, at the CDC site.
[BREITBART] The decision by Los Angeles-based Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to wade into the upcoming U.S. election by offering voting advice was a “violation” of their “Megxit” deal with the Queen and could further jeopardise their links to the monarchy, it was claimed Sunday by senior royal aides.
According to the Times newspaper, courtiers have been canvassing how the royal household could separate itself further from the pair.
The distance is required after the couple called on voters in America to “reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity” in “the most important election of our lifetime” — comments widely interpreted as a swipe at President Donald Trump.
She wears pretty clothes well, but otherwise is anyone interested in the silly things she thinks about anything?
The two spoke during an ABC broadcast special unveiling of the 2020 TIME 100, TIME’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people on Tuesday — National Voter Registration Day.
Markle is about to make history as the first British royal family member to publicly be known to exercise their right to vote, noted TIME.
Trump slammed Markle from the White House podium after the video message was released, while offering an observation of his own on the couple and their marriage.
“I’m not a fan of hers,” Trump said of the actress. “I would say this – and she has probably heard that – I wish a lot of luck to Harry because he’s going to need it.”
Although Prince Harry will be unable to vote as he is not a U.S. citizen, he feels less constrained when it comes to offering his own advice on climate and other matters.
[FoxNews] The exercise was a part of the Army’s Project Convergence 2020.
The U.S. military recently conducted a live-fire full combat replication with unmanned-to-unmanned teaming guiding attacks, small reconnaissance drones, satellites sending target coordinates to ground artillery and high-speed, AI-enabled “networked” warfare. This exercise was a part of the Army’s Project Convergence 2020, a weapons and platform combat experiment which, service leaders say, represents a massive transformation helping the service pivot its weapons use, tactics and maneuver strategies into a new era.
Taking place at Yuma Proving Grounds, Arizona, Project Convergence involved live-fire war experiments aligned in three distinct phases, intended to help the Army cultivate its emerging modern Combined Arms Maneuver strategy. Through carefully coordinated attack maneuvers, the force sought to hit and disable the outer defensive perimeter of an enemy system such as its air defenses.
Second, as explained by PC20 coordinator Brig. Gen. Ross Coffman, was a “disintegration phase” wherein operational aircraft including advanced helicopters, drones and mini-drone Air Launched Effects, found and attacked the enemy’s long-range precision fires apparatus. The third and final phase, as explained by Coffman, included the use of armored vehicle ground force fires to directly engage with, fire upon and destroy enemy assets and formations.
“This follows the multi-domain operations concept of how we plan to fight,” Coffman said.
The title of Rapid Deployment Forces is often associated with the US Marines. Members of the United States Marine Corps are stationed worldwide on ships, off the coasts of troubled regions and are already in place. That mission status usually places them into the category of "Forward Deployed"
...they did in the Philippines 1944-45. With the island hopping pretty much wrapped up, Marine air assets were available. The Army request their support as the Army Air Corps was just tied up in maintaining air superiority. The Marine air provided troop support and were the preferred choice of Army ground troops. - cite
[Jpost] The purpose of this new course is to offer a chance to anyone who has always dreamed of feeling what it is like to fly a real combat aircraft.
An online simulator squadron, the civilian equivalent of the Israeli Air Force (IAF) simulation squadron, is offering a unique, online combat flying course for the first time since its inception.
On normal days, the flight simulator squadron, based in Gillot Mall, offers a variety of different flight simulation courses to civilians.
Former IAF combat pilots and active-duty IAF simulator operators will take part in the new virtual course. "Following these challenging times, during which we are forced to stay at home and take care of each other, we felt committed to bring the simulation course to people's homes," said IAF Colonel (res.) Kobi Regev, who founded the squadron.
The purpose of this new course is to offer anyone who has always dreamed of feeling what it is like to fly a real combat aircraft a chance to do so, at least virtually. In this case, an F-16 fighter jet.
The course is designed to closely follow its military model. After the participants complete the early stages of training, during which they learn how to "fly" an actual combat aircraft, they move on to participate in simulated sorties.
Each session starts with a daily briefing, single or team planning, a simulated flight and a post-flight debriefing.
