Home cooking may be one of the underappreciated social benefits of the coronavirus thing. Instead of going to some overpriced eatery for low-quality food, one could stay home for a decent meal instead.

Invite some friends over if you prefer social interaction. Add some beverages...what's not to like?

For what it's worth...Microsoft has to write and test a "small" piece of hardware-specific code for each chipset combination before they release Windows 10 for a particular platform. That's literally hundreds of chipset combinations.

In other words, there is no such thing as a common code base for Windows 10 that is available for all platforms all at once. It doesn't work like that. In the interest of change control, Microsoft makes selective updates available for selected platforms a few at a time...for example all stuff made by Dell, HP, Lenovo one day...then maybe motherboards with xxx chipsets a few days later...and so on.

Windows Update should prevent the install from occurring at all if the hardware isn't qualified yet...but sometimes bugs happen.

"This PC can't be upgraded to Windows 10. Your PC settings aren't supported yet on this version of Windows 10. Microsoft is working to support your settings soon. No action is needed. Windows Update will offer this version of Windows 10 automatically when these settings are supported," his message reads.

Microsoft watcher Paul Thurrott ran into to the same error message when upgrading a machine from Windows 10 version 1809. "Never seen this before," he said.

Making matters worse, the issue arises when Windows 10 2004, also known as the Windows 10 May 2020 Update, is offered through Windows Update. According to Thurrott, the block message appears after the upgrade installs to 30%.

Covid Chronicles. Where did that cry of Herd Immunity disappear to? Remember that one.
_____________________________________________________

One week ago, when looking at the growing divergence between the number of new coronavirus cases in the US and shrinking number of fatalities, we referred to Nordea's strategist Andreas Steno Larsen, who observed that "we are entering “crunch time” on fatalities since they should start to rise in early July given the lead/lag structure versus new cases."

As Larsen further predicted, "if fatalities don’t spike early in July, then people will conclude that it’s probably spreading amongst a part of the population that is not as sensitive, or that it is a resulted of increased testing or that the virus has become less deadly as we move into the summer months. Governors in Texas, California and Florida seem to have concluded that the below correlation holds, but the jury is still out."

His conclusion was that "the next 6-10 days will be crucial."

Well, one week later, we decided to follow up on the current status and... there is still no spike in fatalities at either the federal level...

"Crunch Time" Arrives And... Was Everyone Wrong About The Coronavirus?

Submitted by Adam Andrzejewski, first published in Forbes

Yesterday, the Small Business Administration released data on which businesses received forgivable loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) in amounts between $150,000 and $10 million.

So, who received how much taxpayer money through the program? Our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com mapped the big loans – the nearly 83,000 loans between $1 million and $10 million. These businesses are located in 13,700 zip codes across the country.

Now, you can find out yourself, zip code by zip code, with an interactive tool we’ve built on our government transparency website.

Microsoft has published on Tuesday two out-of-band security updates to patch two vulnerabilities in the Microsoft Windows Codecs Library.

Tracked as CVE-2020-1425 & CVE-2020-1457, the two bugs only impact Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019 distributions.

In security advisories published today, Microsoft said the two security flaws can be exploited with the help of a specially crafted image file.

If the malformed images are opened inside apps that utilize the built-in Windows Codecs Library to handle multimedia content, then attackers would be allowed to run malicious code on a Windows computer and potentially take over the device.

The two bugs -- described as two remote code execution (RCE) vulnerabilities -- received patches earlier today.

A caravan of protesters, some carrying plastic pitchforks, gathered outside two Southampton billionaires' homes Wednesday, one owned by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, to demand that wealthy New Yorkers pay higher taxes amid statewide revenue shortfalls.

The protesters called for Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to raise taxes on the state’s 118 billionaires to help make up for a gaping revenue shortfall that has left state and local governments reeling from the coronavirus pandemic. They also called for the billionaires and the state to recognize Indigenous land rights, including the Shinnecock Indian Nation's claim to Shinnecock Hills and surrounding territory.

The group, which included Shinnecock Indian Nation members, New York Communities for Change, the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, the Long Island Progressive Coalition and the Poor People’s Campaign LI, cited Forbes figures that estimate billionaires statewide have seen their collective net worth increase by $44.9 billion from March 18 to May 15.

More than 100 people gathered outside Bloomberg's Southampton mansion Wednesday, where they referred to him as a "looter."

U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill imposing sanctions on banks that do business with Chinese officials involved in the national security law that cracks down on pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong, a move many lawmakers said violated the government’s promise to honor the autonomy of the former British colony.

During a special appearance at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the new law "signals the death of the one country, two systems" model followed by China with respect to Hong Kong

"The law is a brutal, sweeping crackdown against the people of Hong Kong, intended to destroy the freedoms they were promised,"

June 30 (UPI) — Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top U.S. infectious diseases expert, told a Senate committee Tuesday the United States could eventually see 100,000 new COVID-19 cases a day.

Speaking at a hearing of the Senate health, education, labor and pensions committee with other members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, Fauci said the country is “not in total control” of the pandemic and could see daily cases more than double from their current average.

“I can’t make an accurate prediction, but it’s going to be very disturbing,” he said in a response to a question from Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. “I will guarantee you that, because when you have an outbreak in one part of the country, even though in other parts of the country they’re doing well, they are vulnerable.

“We are now having 40,000-plus new cases a day. I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around, and so I am very concerned,” he said.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WJZ) — Washington D.C. and Baltimore are among the worst-run cities in America, in a new study.

Wallet Hub looked at the 150 most-populated U.S. cities and looked at the efficiency of the city operation. They then assigned each city a “Quality of Services” score made up of 38 metrics grouped into six service categories — including transit, crime, and education — which was then measured against the city’s per-capita budget.

Washington D.C. was the worst-run city at no. 150 on the list.

San Francisco was no. 149, Gulfport, Miss, Chattanooga, Tenn. and New York City rounded out the worst-run cities.
Baltimore was ranked no. 128 on the list

Schools across the U.S. are coping with uncertainty for the year that begins in August or September as it’s largely unclear whether in-person courses will be offered given the rise in Covid-19 cases. Students at dozens of schools have already balked at the full price for last semester’s tuition with months of online classes, suing for billions of dollars in refunds. -Bloomberg

The richest liberal arts university in the country, Williams College, has slashed tuition by 15% "in recognition of the extraordinary circumstances and of this academic year and the uncertainty we face in the year ahead," according to Bloomberg.

"This reduction recognizes the fact that the pandemic and associated challenges are requiring us to cancel winter study as well as fall athletics competition and many student activities, among other opportunities that we usually encourage families to expect as part of their student’s education," said school President Maud Mandel.

Williams, which has a $2.9 billion endowment (as of June, 2019) will also be canceling sports competitions and travel for the season according to a Monday statement.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, Tuition, room and board will set back rich parents and lending institutions $63,200. Of note, four years at the university will set one back more than the average mortgage balance carried by millennials.

Of the approximately 50,000 genomes of the new virus that researchers worldwide have uploaded to a shared database, about 70% carry the mutation, officially designated D614G but known more familiarly to scientists as "G."

"G" hasn't just dominated the outbreak in Chicago - it has taken over the world. Now scientists are racing to figure out what it means.

At least four laboratory experiments suggest that the mutation makes the virus more infectious, although none of that work has been peer-reviewed. Another unpublished study led by scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory asserts that patients with the G variant actually have more virus in their bodies, making them more likely to spread it to others.

The mutation doesn't appear to make people sicker, but a growing number of scientists worry that it has made the virus more contagious.

Reopening of schools has been delayed until Aug. 17, and gatherings of 50 or more are prohibited statewide. Some school districts were due to start classes in less than a month. Gov Ducey cited safety concerns and a need for "consistency" in the state's numbers.

The company is led by Chairman Jia Zhihong, an intimidating ex-military man who is the controlling shareholder.

What could go wrong?

Well, plenty, as at least some of 83 tons of gold bars used as collateral turned out to be nothing but gilded copper.

Yelp makes a shocking claim: "Of all business closures on Yelp since March 1, 41% are permanent closures."

"Our data shows the largest spikes of permanent closures occurred in March, followed by May and June, indicating that the businesses that were already struggling had to permanently close right away and the businesses that were trying to hold on, but unable to weather the COVID-19 storm, were forced to shutter in recent months."

"Among those with the highest rate of business closures are shopping and retail (27,663 closed businesses), restaurants (23,981 closed businesses), beauty (15,348 closed businesses) and fitness (5,589 closed businesses).

"Retail was by far the hardest hit, experiencing the highest number of total closures, with the average daily rate continuing to increase since March. Of all closures on Yelp since March 1, 20% are for retail businesses and 35% of closed retail businesses are indicated as permanent on Yelp.

"In March, Restaurants had the highest number of business closures, compared to other industries, and have continued to close at high rates. Of the businesses that closed, 17% are restaurants, and 53% of those restaurant closures are indicated as permanent on Yelp. Restaurants run on thin margins and can sometimes take months or even years to break even, resulting in this higher rate of permanent closures."

Investor faith in the largess of central banks is about to be tested anew as the soaring rate of Covid-19 infections re-establishes itself as the chief obsession of markets.

The renewed risk-off tone is likely to dominate when trading starts in Asia on Monday, according to analysts, though a report Sunday showing the first increase in profits at Chinese industrial enterprises since November may provide some support to stocks.

“Investors’ recent love of U.S. risky assets will soon reverse as the U.S. will battle the resurging pandemic,” “Stating the obvious: don’t fight the major central banks. They’ll remain in the game for years to come.”

Andrew Cuomo urges everyone who attended protests in the state to get tested, officials in California, in the Bay Area and LA County and the surrounding area, have warned that the protests over George Floyd's death have contributed to the increase in daily confirmed infection totals seen in recent weeks.

Now, less than a day after San Francisco mayor said she would put plans to ease more restrictions Monday on hold following a concerning uptick in new infections, Philadelphia city officials on Saturday have just warned that they are considering a similar delay, which would postpone the move into the "green phase" of the city's reopening, CBS News reports.

Don’t worry, those massive BLM protests in Philly, that were encouraged by the dem leadership, had nothing to do with it 🤪 https://news.yahoo.com/54-cases-coronavirus-montgomery-county-202458116.html …

Twentysomethings and thirtysomethings likely aren't going to bars - at least not in Philadelphia. So where are they getting sick?

"Patients that are in their 20s and even younger than that, and that’s a huge concern because that’s a population that everybody thought was somewhat protected and now we’re seeing those patients with more and more symptoms, not just asymptotic disease,” Pierce said.
Doctors say spikes in cases around the country, that now includes Pennsylvania, are mainly among younger people.

There only seems to be one feasible explanation.

This year, the dust is the most dense it has been in a half a century, several meteorologists told Reuters earlier this week as it crossed over the Caribbean.

The Saharan dust plume will hang over the region until the middle of next week, deteriorating the air quality in Texas, Florida and other states where the number of COVID-19 cases has recently spiked.

“There’s emerging evidence of potential interactions between air pollution and the risk of COVID, so at this stage we are concerned,” said Gregory Wellenius, an professor of environmental health at Boston University’s School of Public Health.

With various polls showing Joe Biden commanding a sizable lead over Donald Trump ahead of the November presidential election, and even online betting sites such as PredictIt representing Biden as a 14 point favorite, the stock market has clearly been surprisingly sanguine about a change in leadership to a Democratic president, even if it entails higher corporate taxes....

However, while stocks appear unfazed so far by political events, the same can not be said for FX traders who according to Bloomberg are "starting to contemplate the unthinkable": The possibility that the U.S. presidential election produces no clear winner, leading to protracted uncertainty.

According to yen implied volatility, there is a sharp jump in expected price moves around election day which is expected to persist into 2021. That is in contrast with the run-up to the 2016 election, when turmoil indicator in FX land reflected only a temporary minor uptick in volatility as investors broadly overlooked the likelihood of a Trump presidency - or any controversy surrounding the results - leaving them painfully exposed to those events.

Barring a landslide, what’s probably not coming on Nov. 3? A result in the race for the White House.

If voters remain reluctant to cast ballots in person, November is likely to bring an even more massive wave of voting by mail than what has swept across the country during primary season. That, in turn, means a close race between President Trump and former vice president Joe Biden in a pivotal state could take days, even weeks, to resolve, election officials across the country are warning.

Barring a landslide for either candidate, that scenario could invite an unprecedented test of the country’s faith in its elections: an extended period without a declared winner.

“It’s different this year. It’s dramatically different,” Mayor Rick Meehan said. “Typically, we have the graduating seniors, high school and even some college seniors here, but this is a different group. Rather than ages 17 to 21, really what we are seeing is 17 to maybe 31, 32, so it’s a different group all together.”

"who is worried more"...US businessmen whose businesses consist primarily of Chinese imports.

An anecdotal example: There is a fellow in my neighborhood who runs a multimillion dollar auto parts distributorship. His customers consist of anyone who repairs cars...professional auto mechanics, auto body shops, DIY people at home. As anyone in the trade can tell you, his merchandise consists primarily of Chinese imports.

He makes no secret about his Chinese business interests, and will lobby anyone about his perceived need for better relations with China. All his customers care about is getting good auto parts at a reasonable price, but he cares about getting the best deal with the Chinese. He wants to see the tensions end, even when nobody else in the neighborhood cares about the issue.

France: Public’s Trust in Science Suffers ‘Significant Decline’ over Coronavirus

“There’s a significant decline in confidence,” said Sylvain Brouard, research director of the National Political Science Foundation at Sciences Po and a member of the team tracking public reaction to the pandemic in France.

Thirty-six percent of respondents now say that scientists are hiding information about the coronavirus from the public.
According to Dr. Brouard, two controversies in particular have contributed to the change in the national mood.

The first involves the benefit of using face masks to mitigate contagion. The government said initially that there was no scientific evidence favoring the use of masks, a position that was echoed by official scientific advisory groups. Later on, however, the government position changed 180 degrees and now it mandates the wearing of face masks on public transportation.

“It’s a complete reversal of policy,” Brouard said.

The second controversy revolves around the figure of Professor Didier Raoult, director of the Mediterranean Infection Foundation in Marseilles and author of a study on the benefits of hydroxychloroquine as an effective treatment for COVID-19.
While France’s top public health council decided in late May to halt the use of hydroxychloroquine on patients, Professor Raoult has continued to defend the efficacy of the treatment in the French media.

That confusion was further aggravated by The Lancet medical journal’s retraction of a major study on hydroxychloroquine after revelations that the study was based on faulty data.
As a result, a survey shows the French public currently has greater confidence in Professor Raoult than in France’s minister of health.
The public see “one prominent medical professor saying he has a good answer to the disease and the government doesn’t want to use it,” Dr. Brouard said.

"To facilitate lending to small businesses via the Small Business Administration's Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the Federal Reserve will establish a facility to provide term financing backed by PPP loans, the Fed said in a brief statement. “Additional details will be announced this week.”

Effectively, the Fed will establish a secondary market for loans guaranteed by the Small Business Administration’s Payroll Protection Program, and where the end buyer will be the Fed itself.

And so, what was supposed to be a no string attached rescue of America's small business, the PPP program has now mutated in yet another massive handout to the big banks, who will collect servicing costs ranging from 5% for small loans to 1% for larger ones, using Treasury capital (no origination risk) and then immediately selling these loans to the Fed if they turn sour (no balance sheet risk).

Singapore Retail Investors Use Cheap Cash to Load Up on Stocks - BBRG

(Bloomberg) -- Record low interest rates are tempting some retail investors in Singapore to load up on debt to buy shares, just as the coronavirus outbreak creates the most volatile markets since the global financial crisis.

Earlier this year, 31-year-old insurance agent Heng Kai Sheng got advances on three separate credit cards to the tune of S$150,000 ($105,000). With the money, he opened a share-financing account at a local bank and pledged the lot as collateral. He was granted leverage of around 3.5 times, a S$500,000 kitty Heng’s plowing into the stock market.

“As Asians, our parents always tell us ‘Don’t borrow money, repay your mortgage as soon as possible’,” said Heng, whose initial S$170,000 share portfolio now totals about S$135,000. “But money is so cheap.” .../..

Melodramatic, but poor article.
However, the main theme is correct, of course:
If you watch world history you see the most empires, large systems, greedy business people have collapsed when corruption, avarice, spoiledness have gone wild
Rome collapsed under corruption...
Malcolm McLean collapsed believing oil will go to 150...
Most children of very rich people--turned to zeroes ...
The great Prophets of the Bible (Isiah, Amos,Jeremiah...) pontificate against excess corruption of judges and wealthy people...
Hitler died from the overdose of drugs Theodor Morell injected him several times a day...

OVER INDULGENCE NEVER added to the strength and sturdiness of a nation or any society.
We have reached a stage where the LUXURY industry (cruises, restaurants, lavish cosmetics, grandiose homes, clothes, cars, parties....) has become the largest part of our economy. It is also the LEAST crucial part of life--and therefore most fragile! On Maslow's hierarchy of needs---greed and avarice rate very low. This is why the whole economy came to a halt just because cruise industry failed.

Most likely it is mother Nature (whom it is NOT NICE to fool) saw it fit to correct this imbalance. Maybe, after the Corona, humanity will realize that modesty, unselfishness, introspection, are not so bad. That the blue bird is actually in our own backyard and that a Maserati is NOT the raison d'etre of life.
Nahhhh.

Corporate America on lockdown now conducts business on the Internet using aps. Zoom stock has taken off
______________________________________________________
The latest findings landed earlier today when Citizen Lab researchers said that some calls made in North America were routed through China — as were the encryption keys used to secure those calls. But as was noted this week, Zoom isn’t end-to-end encrypted at all, despite the company’s earlier claims, meaning that Zoom controls the encryption keys and can therefore access the contents of its customers’ calls.

Zoom admits 'mistake'

OPEC and its allies will likely postpone emergency meeting to April 8 or 9, sources say - cnbc, APR 4 2020 4:42 AM

“The Russian Minister of Energy was the first to declare to the media that all the participating countries are absolved of their commitments starting from the first of April, leading to the decision that the countries have taken to raise their production to offset the lower prices and compensate for their loss of returns,”

Prince Abdulaziz said in a statement.
