Great recession suicide death rate increase was *1* per 100k. Current Corona death rate in the US is **~30 per 100k**. Great recession peak was ~10% unemployment w/ 15m unemployed.

Facepalm. There is no physical advantage for rockets to be *built* near the equator. Launched, yes. But not built. There's a whole lot of empty space in texas Elon could have used.

The people of Taiwan and South Korea are voluntarily following social distancing and many more recommendations. Americans can't even do it when it's put into force of law...

Matt's tweet is disingenuous, but Uber's notice is 100% a political move on the same level. If Uber has an actual business problem they should quietly drop the service or raise prices. Sending this kind of email makes them fair game for criticism as they are making it political.

Mike why isn't Uber just increasing their delivery fees to compensate for long-distance deliveries??? Those aren't subject to a cap.

There's no cap on delivery fees, just restaurant commissions. Use your brain

If Uber is *actually* concerned about ops costs, why don't they increase the delivery fee?? Delivery fees are not capped by this order. This is political bullshit.

This seems like a somewhat bold claim. How much tax revenue would those jobs have directly contributed during this time?

Good source! Increase in overall suicide rate from 14.5 (avg) before to 16 per 100k after the recession = 1.5/100k. **Compare w/ C19 where any state that doesn't aggressively address spread is >10...**

There are many questions. Such as what is the safety record of the Wuhan Institute of Virology?? The main lab for studying Coronaviruses in China.

This makes no sense. Global demand for these goods *spikes massively* but export quantity drops. Despite a possible lack of officially announced bans, the gov takeover of factories and materials producers has a de-facto export ban effect as foreign orders were last in the queue.

I'm generally a fan but this is incorrect. The name of the market includes "seafood" but it's a standard wet market. It had live and dead animals, fish, mollusks, etc.

Good piece on the vital role of wet markets in day to day life in China. Makes the *critical* point that wet markets are not the reason for Coronavirus, but poor sanitation and handling of certain species. Hopefully any new regulation is sensible.

Parasite is such a profoundly personal film for me, not just as a Korean, but as someone who at one point grew up in not-too-different circumstances than the ones in the film. Here comes a thread about representation, and how pride and poverty coexist in Korean culture. 1/13
