    For those of us still earning an income.... https://www.msn.com/en-us/foodanddrink/foodnews/this-app-lets-you-send-pizza-to-health-care-workers-while-theyre-on-the-job/ar-BB11OpHc?li=BBnb7Kz This app lets you send pizza to health care workers while they're on the job There's a new way to show some appreciation for health care workers on the front lines battling the coronavirus outbreak while simultaneously supporting local pizzerias.Pizza delivery app Slice has partnered with Slice Out Hunger and Pizza to the Polls to create a new campaign that the groups are calling Pizza vs. Pandemic. It allows thankful citizens to feed the tireless workers who are putting themselves at risk everyday by sending them some love in the form of cheesy goodness.In less than a week, the campaign has sent over 1,600 pizzas to hungry doctors, nurses and other hospital staff members.Scott Wiener, the founder of Slice Out Hunger spoke to TODAY Food and said that the collaboration between the three organizations happened quickly after he received a call from Ilir Sela, the founder and CEO of Slice. "Within a few hours we hashed everything out and had it up and running," Wiener said of the campaign. "It's 100% volunteer-run. I'm literally sitting here with a Google Sheet and our nonprofit credit card placing orders.Here's how it works. When people make a donation online, they can designate any hospital or medical care center nationwide to receive pizzas. The number of pies and specific toppings are determined by what the center requests. After people donate sufficient funds, Slice reaches out to its local network of pizza shops and places orders at restaurants best equipped to serve a medical center nearby. Many of the smaller eateries, which have been suffering due to mandated restaurant closures, are grateful for the influx of new business"Our team calls the center you choose to make sure they can receive outside food," Wiener said. "We can't just send pizza willy-nilly," he added, referring to the constraints the coronavirus crisis has placed on personal interactions. "Once the team has confirmation, they link up with a local pizzeria and the order is placed." "We are sending 20 to 50 pizzas at a time." Wiener told TODAY. Currently, a lot of pies are being sent in New York, which, as of Friday, had the most confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. However, the campaign has also sent quite a few pies to hospitals in Indiana, Arkansas and California.Wiener said he hopes the free food will make a difference in the lives of those working so tirelessly to save others."It’s so frustrating being separated from everything and only hearing bad news," he said. "With this concept, we’re able to concentrate on positivity and people helping other people."At first, Wiener did worry that the massive pizza deliveries would be an intrusion on workers' busy schedules. So far, however, he said the response from those receiving pies has been nothing but grateful.

    Despite your given name does your mother refer to you as 'Daddy's Ballsack' or 'My Uterus'? And just to be specific, if you were born in Wuhan China and your parents named you Yoa Ming...your name would be Yoa Ming...not 'China Person'...this doesn't change no matter how desperate the attempts to defend the sheer idiocy.

    I'm for putting up a banner the same size as the 2017 Natty. One with a BIG #1in AP and WBCA Coaches polls and the overall record on it. The ladies should also get championship sized rings w/ #1 on them surrounded by diamonds. Treat everything as if they won the Natty w/o claiming they won it all. Raise that banner to the rafters and it will be shown on TV during every game and I guarantee a couple times or more a season, that banner will be a conversation starter for a broadcast team to talk about how great that '19-20 team was, possibly Dawn's best, and what a shame it was that they didn't get to compete for a championship. USC has to make sure that team's accomplishments are memorialized b/c the national media isn't going to do it. In they're minds this was the season of Ionescu and Oregon and what a shame she's leaving Eugene without a NC.

    If you are one who goes to bars or eats out often it might be worth putting your normal tip per drink in a jar then donating to the bartenders guild or local place. I was reading a movement that was suggesting for every drink you have at home instead of going out, take that tip that you would have given while out and donate it to the people who are out of work.

    Thank you guys for making it crystal clear for everyone. The US was best prepared for a global pandemic. We currently have the most cases and the virus is exploding, so we are handling it the worst of any country. So.....best prepared and doing the worst - how can that be? Simple answer: Leadership. Or complete lack thereof. We had a President that did not fiddle while Rome burned, but rather golfed and went off to do rallies while the disease arrived and spread across the country. All while saying that it was overblown and we had it under control. Doing that for two months destroyed our edge in equipment and preparation and resulted in a disaster for our country. And it still continues. Trump's concern is for opening everything up for Easter - not making sure that the virus is controlled.

    Well put. Trump was not even supposed to be in the loop with the 391 million that was going to Ukraine - all the approvals had been done and the executive branch was just sendin the money out. But Trump figured out a way to ILLEGALLY stop the money from flowing so he could use the money for extortion. And Moscow Mitch and his big business buds in the Senate wanted to give Trump over 1200 times that much money, with complete control and no oversight?? And he did not even have to tell the American public who was getting the money for 6 months?? The most corrupt President in the history of our country - by far - is getting his hands on 500 BILLION so he can extort, punish and reward to his heart's desire?? And the Democrats were bad because they did not rubber stamp that crap - which was set up without their input?? And then Trump says "I am the oversight"????? The guy is an egotistical lying crook and has been his entire life. Wake up, people.

    JUCO Defensive Back Marcellas Dial, 2019 graduate out of Woodruff, SC High School. Dial (5-11, 180) is projected as a Cornerback, but as we all know with Coaches Muschamp and Robinson's defensive schemes, he's likely to spend time at all secondary positions. Dial played at Georgia Military Junior College. 247Sports.com article on his commitment

    He did a very BAD job until about a week ago (a week ago was his disastrous talk from the Oval Office, filled with misstatements, that sent the Markets dropping after hours). I believe that he has done much better in the last week, but we are still behind with things like testing and preparedness because he ignored the virus for so long. He even took the Democrats to task for crying wolf - saying that their concerns with his lack of response was their latest hoax. And remember that, back in 2018, he shut down the pandemic task force that was part of the NSC. But he is responding now and we need to get behind him, and also hope that representatives from both parties will work together and forget about party differences.

    yes, that NC Board of dentistry has made that call...the problem with the ADA making the call is that it has lumped everyone into the same boat. I am doing everything I can to shut down ASAP but it is not as simple (for me at least) as just rescheduling everyone. I wish that our board of dentistry would put out a statement to the general public. The ADA probably represents 30% of all dentists while the Board of Dentistry represents 100% of dentists in the their respective states. My area (east of Knoxville up to maybe Whytheville, VA and over to all othat part of VA and TN has one case thus far). I know that it is coming...it is a matter of when and not if...shutting down practices for 3 weeks no big deal...shutting down for 6-10 weeks will mean massive layoffs in our field. I will do whatever is best for the community!

    In a laboratory setting (more on this below), coronavirus can survive on metal for up to five days, glass for four to five days, and plastic for up to nine days, according to a study recently conducted by the Journal of Hospital Infection. Fortunately we do not live in a lab. Real world results may differ. CV spread is slowing down after the infection rate hits 60%-70% of the population as seen in China, Italy, and Iran. We can expect that here as well. Our best hope is to flatten the infection curve, spread the infections out from days to weeks and months. That would keep the hospitals from being overwhelmed. Otherwise half of new cases will have to be triaged for treatment and the other half for death.

    “He has done a really nice job of being on balance in the pocket, trusting his protection, and I think that comes with understanding his protection and being able to sit in that pocket and be calm. He’s been very very accurate up to this point today." “I’ve been really pleased with Luke,” Bobo said Thursday. “Him and MarShawn (Lloyd) probably fall in the same category of being very conscientious, want to learn, want to put themselves in a position to compete. Luke has been accurate. I think two days ago he was 11-of-11 in practice, which was awesome. He hit every target. He made some nice throws today and completed the ball on third down. He has pulled the ball down a couple times when everyone has been covered and had explosive runs." https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/south-carolina-football/mike-bobo-south-carolina-quarterbacks-2020-spring/amp/

    Here’s my assessment... we don’t need to have Moss or Leveque playing tonight. Ride Bolden ALL THE WAY to the end of the game. Frink needs to play more, rotating with McCreary. Best lineup tonight is Kotsar, Frink, Bryant, Bolden and Cousinard. Rotate Bolden and Lawson for offense and rest. Rotate Bryant and Frink for defensive rebounding and rest.

    Well let's see what he "said or did" about this virus so far... Denied it existed for three months, calling it a democrat hoax. Lied throughout the month of February about it being "an issue we have well under control", and even stating it's safe for people to go to work when they're sick. When it became an obvious pandemic and unequivocal threat to the US, only then did he approve the CDC to start working on research and a cure, in the month of March. When he had no choice but to acknowledge it's existence, his go to was to make it an immigration issue, saying his plan was to shut down the borders so no immigrants can come over and infect America, which is not at all the issue. And now he stands at the podium talking about how he has "a great plan", and Mike Pence bumbles on about how Trump has been so proactive and in control. He even went to the lengths of complimenting Trump on "being the one who took charge to address the situation before it could become serious", which is grade A horseshit. The only thing Trump can do at this point that will be of any help is to just get out of the damn way. His egotistical denial of the virus for months, refusing to allot government resources to combat it, is what currently has us looking at empty grocery stores, the stock market crashing, and possibly millions dying because it may be too late to flatten the curve and have enough hospital beds with respirators. He did jack shit to be proactive. Had he acknowledged it months ago, we could be in much better shape right now instead of everyone hoarding supplies/food and being confused about what proper protocol is. Shit, half of the nation is still saying it's hardly a big deal and going on with normal life. He did a horrible job of raising awareness and preparing people. This shit should not be a partisan issue and he made it one.

    If the President held any public confidence, having a briefing would be good. But since he doesn't, his words would fall ineffective. And if it isn't a rally where he is blaming someone else, then his base isnt listening. SO maybe he could have daily rallies at the White House?
