The incumbent president track record whilst campaigning for office in 2016 and whilst in office is just real fresh in my mind. To m...

Re: Coronavirus - COVID-19 - 5392 cases, 101 deaths, 1459 active, 3832 recovered in T&T

Covid19 has truly worn us down and the silent invisible impacts are all too noticeable. Inability to sleep, feelings of fatigue, a sense of being confined, a feeling that everything is going down the drain and out-burst of anger. We are hearing from less and less cheer-leaders since they themselves...

Re: All Things US Politics Related in a Trump run White House.

This 2020 elections in the USA seems to be heading towards a real messy and possibly dangerous situation.
If the USA is supposed to represent democracy at its best, political scientist have some serious re-engineering to do.

Discharging of cargo from this storage tanker at this time could requir...

Well things are going as predicted and our ability to control the rate of infection is squarely on our collective shoulders.
We may be mentally and emotionally exhausted, but Covid19 will continue to take advantage of any weakness we leave in our management model.
Stay committed to the cause.

Re: Free led light bulb

Always wondered about quantity of bulbs per household.
4 bulbs each, for certain households may just provide lighting of 1 vanity light bar.
The hassle of making apptment to collect 4 bulbs to many makes no sense.

I am now assuming a domestic infected load of not less than 20,000 to govern my behavior.
Without any doubt, when I have to be outside, the assumption is I will cross paths with at least 1 infected person.
Hopefully these assumptions will help keep me focused on doing the right things.
