The United States has the potential to become the new epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic due to a “very large acceleration” in infections there, the World Health Organization said on Tuesday. COVID-19 has infected more than 42,000 people in the United States, and more states have gone into lockdown. 

Over the past 24 hours, 85% of new cases worldwide were from Europe and the United States, WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris told reporters. Of those, 40% were from the United States. 

Margaret was asked if the United States could become the new epicenter for the virus, she said: “We are now seeing a very large acceleration in cases in the U.S. So it does have that potential. We cannot say that is the case yet but it does have that potential.” 

“…They (the United States) have a very large outbreak and an outbreak that is increasing in intensity,” Harris added. 

However, she identified some positive signs such as more comprehensive testing, and further efforts to isolate the sick and trace their immediate contacts exposed to the virus. These are the first good steps to a turnaround, so maybe the economy can open again and stocks can continue to rally like they did on Tuesday. 

Solar Keeps Taking Hits

Angry McConnell: ‘Tax credits for solar panels’ holding up critical economic relief package

Republicans Monday accused Democrats of holding up the coronavirus economic relief package by treating it like “a juicy political opportunity.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, said the $2 trillion measure was “this close” to passing until House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, arrived in the Capitol Sunday and demanded the bill include “unrelated issues, left and right,” to satisfy the party’s liberal agenda.

If true, this is disgusting. Oversight is one thing and normally not the best thing, but one of the pet projects some are saying was being pushed into the bills was tax credits for solar panels. “I’d like to see Senate Democrats tell all American seniors who’ve seen their hard-earned retirement savings literally melt away as the markets track toward their worst month since 1931 that they’re continuing to hold up emergency measures over tax credits for solar panels,” McConnell said.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat complained the bill still includes “large corporate bailouts with almost no strings attached” and wants “protection” for workers and oversight of the big companies who receive federal loans. 

Is McConnell or Schumer telling the truth? I want to know what you think. Reply to this email and tell me!”

Electric Cars, Gas Cars or Just Stay Home

Electric vs. fuel has been the hot topic as more and more electric cars start to pop up on the streets. There has been talk that electric cars contribute to the carbon emission just as much, if not more than fuel powered vehicles. There is also a recent study claiming that electric cars produce 30% less emissions in their lifetime than a fuel powered car. 

One of the problems is with the price of crude oil falling as quickly as it is, how do you argue with someone that wants to drive a big V-8? Gas-powered vehicles are still cheaper, and gas prices are falling like a led zeppelin.  

I think it’s safe to say that, yes, electric cars are in fact better for the environment. However, nothing electric will ever mimic the beautiful sound of a bad ass muscle car and its deep mean growl. Maybe the best bet is no car. Cheap and good for the environment, plus being stuck at home watching tv on your couch and eating whatever the heck you want sure beats dying from a virus or a car wreck. Stay home and stay safe and help the environment!

Old Soggy Bottom

You know how they say, tattoos are addictive? Apparently the same is true for 33-year-old Star Delguidice when it comes to plastic surgery.  She has undergone over 20 surgeries, has spent more than $280,000 and unfortunately, it’s left her looking worse than when she started. Her most recent botched operation was butt implants which now look like a soggy wet diaper in her drawers. 

Star stated that she gained weight specifically for the operation. They took out fat from her arms, stomach and thighs and injected it into her backside. Because she demanded the implants be twice the size of a generally recommended butt implant, things went sideways, and her butt now sags so low it smacks against the back of her legs when she walks. 

For all you ladies out there, a little word of advice. Accept yourself, love yourself, age gracefully, and if you want a bigger butt, build it! Plastic surgery may be the “easy way”, but nothing can replicate a juicy booty better than going to the gym and growing it yourself. And at least you know it will never look like a deflated balloon.

For all you men out there, Reply to this email and tell me….yes or no? That’s all, make the question what you want it to be.
