    I'm a Christian and I don't think He meant not to take precautions from illnesses such as COVID-19. I think Christians who have symptoms of the virus should be responsible and stay away from the public to reduce infecting others.

    This bit of fact came to me in one of the newsletters I get and I was fascinated by how it was first discovered in the old days. Of course the problem with copper/brass fixtures and surfaces is they oxidize and look 'dirty' as they slowly turn green. The article surmises "so what? ... it retains its anti-microbial properties regardless of whether it has been polished or not." The realization is that most folks never realized why door knobs and the like used to be commonly made from brass. Of course now, if you look at most institutions like schools and hospitals avoid the brass fixture opting for stainless steel. The belief, I guess, is because you typically make surgical instruments out of stainless steel (medical folks typically sanitize them by dropping them in boiling water for a few minutes), people think of these items as 'clean' while brass/copper items would likely oxidize and look 'dirty'. This effect of brass is so powerful, there is even some outfit suggests that you can use something like a 3 oz brass coin that you rub on and around your hands for a minute and it will 'saniitize' your hands to one degree ... i.e. it will kill like 84 percent of the microbes on your hand by this action of rubbing on your hands like a bar of soap. This is not perfect but obviously in the game of odds, killing 84 % of the covid-19 virus is better than not. I don't know if it would work, but I suspect that you go to your old penny jar, take out the coins older than 1980, and shove some in each of your pockets. Then, stand around and 'wash' your hands in your pockets with coins like you're a poor duck named Donald whose rich uncle is known as scrooge. There are going to be some new things that may help us out of this, if the folks in charge are smart enough to make it happen. More on that in a later post.

    Apparently the ability of copper to act as a antimicrobial did not escape the attention of some 3D computer printer designers who've come up with an inherently copper-infused anit-microbial, re-usable N-95 mask. Since viruses can't tolerate the presence of copper, the designers created a 3D print medium that includes copper which kills coronaviruses including Covid-19. Because it is plasticized the resulting mask can be fitted to each individual's face by heating the unit, which gives it some remolding flexibility. Yep, it appears that relatively soon one will be able to buy some 3D printer filament and computerized design software (and a capable 3D printer) and print out this new kind of N95 mask that can be re-used many times.

    This Friday the public will be able to view the analysis of how the Covid-19 is progressing nationally on a zipcode by zipcode level using a somewhat randomly distributed internet app that uses data collected from two million Americans from a 'temperature' data pattern collected with a connected digital thermometer. The story about this development is here. The graphic below is an obviously not intended to show data on the county level and this may be an image using flu data ... but IF it is a close expression of how this is progressing, I'm seeing how it can show patterns. In any case, this KIND OF data set can be quite valuable as it may allow the maximization of limited resources. The link to the story is here: It includes numerous other interesting links. If you're using one of these, your data is what we're seeing. To maintain your anonymity, don't disclose your identity.

    China is a communist country that has and continues to imprison those in the country who voice support of freedom and liberty. Lets not forget the Chinese government has executed hundreds of thousands for opposing communism. This is also a country that first limited couples to have only two children and then later only one child in attempts to control its population and has violated basic human rights since communist took the country over. According to you though, this country should be trusted. You advocate a national health care plan and have stated in the past that health care is not rationed in countries that have one and that wouldn't happen with a national health care plan here. One now only has to look at Italy and how they are dealing with COVID-19 to see that isn't true, as they have now moved the elderly to the bottom of the list for ICU beds and ventilators, stating there is not enough of either to go around; because the mortality rate is higher with the elderly than it is with younger people. I think our government should put the people in this country first before they dole out billions of dollars to other countries in fighting poverty.

    HomeAboutIHOP Atlanta Resources PodcastVideosBooksWatchmen on the WallDevotionals BlogConnect Partner Coronavirus: Current Statistics and a Biblical Perspective The Covid-19 Coronavirus is on virtually everyone’s mind right now. My oldest son came home from college yesterday telling me it was the conversation in each of his classes. My recent Google searches for generic subjects are returning results randomly including Coronoavirus details. In the midst of this, I want to offer the current data from the World Health Organization as well as a biblical perspective on this outbreak. As of today, March 10, 2020, the World Health Organization is reporting 113,672 confirmed cases of Covid-19, with 4,012 deaths worldwide since October 2019. The countries with the largest number of cases in order are: China(80,924), Italy(9172), South Korea(7513), Iran(7161), and France(1412). As of today the U.S. is reporting 472 cases. The number of infections globally is growing at around 3,000 per day. (https://experience.arcgis.com/experience/685d0ace521648f8a5beeeee1b9125cd) I understand we have not seen the end of the spread of this virus, since there currently is no known vaccine. At the same time I think it’s helpful to recognize that these numbers are incredibly low when compared to influenza for instance. In the United States alone this year there have been an estimated 32,000,000 influenza infections with approximately 18,000 deaths (https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/index.htm#ILIMap) Influenza kills approximately 300,000 – 650,000 people worldwide annually (https://www.medicinenet.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=208914). With the statistics as they are and with such a huge disparity in the number of covid-19 cases verses influenza, why is there such fear associated with covid-19 and why are the health organizations issuing warnings about self quarantines, public event and school closings? Check out the response to the above question from Otto Yang, M.D., who is one of the infectious disease experts at UCLA, “I think a big part of it is fear of the unknown. The enemy you don’t know is much scarier than the enemy you know.” (https://www.latimes.com/science/story/2020-03-05/flu-killed-more-people-coronavirus-covid-19) In the same interview Yang said it’s “certainly possible” that the number of infections may actually be ten times higher than the confirmed cases being reported by the WHO. If that is true the fatality rate of Covid-19 could actually be as low as 1%. So according to Yang, the main reason for the current hysteria is…fear? That’s astounding. And at the same time it’s incredibly prophetic. Let’s consider what Jesus said regarding the end of the age from Matthew 24:6-7: “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.” Jesus told us to make sure that we (believers) are not troubled by these types of events. “Not troubled” equals not being swept up in the fear and hysteria surrounding these things but instead understanding that these things must come to pass before the Lord returns. He told us these things would happen way ahead of time so that we would be alert and aware, without fear. Consider again His words in Luke 21:26, “People will be fainting from fear and from the expectation of what is coming on the world…” The unsaved respond in fear because they have no other hope, no anchor of their soul. They only have human means to combat the spectre of the unknown. For believers this is not the case, our hope is in Jesus alone. Simply said, fear is not the way we are to respond in times of crisis and hysteria. I believe we are going to see many more “pestilences” and global calamities before the Lord returns. While the world is gripped with fear, there must be a witness from the church of confident love and faith in Jesus’ leadership. Jesus called believers to live a life of watchful, prayerful, expectation in light of the events leading up to His return (Mark 13:32-37). This is the hour to give ourselves to prayer, fasting, and intimacy with Jesus. It’s only through having a vibrant heart, burning in love with the Lord, with clarity in the Word, that we’re going to be able to stand firm, without fear and without offense in the times of great crisis that are coming on the earth. Perfect love casts out all fear! I encourage you lean into Jesus and find yourself anchored in love and faith in this hour. “And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!" – Jesus Billy HumphreyMarch 10,

    The reference above of a 50-50 chance is something I saw on one of the news channels and I can't verify its veracity. I do suspect it was mortality for those with underlying health conditions like heart disease, COPD or diabetes. The chart below sets the mortality by age range which still looks pretty dire for those 70+ ... particularly on the older end of that scale. The above is an image captured here. I think it important to note that this is based on early data and while the sample size is pretty large (I understand in the tens of thousands) it is still subject to change for a variety of reasons from seasonality of the malady to relative health of elderly Chinese vs. American's or other nationalities. I think it also important to know that say the typical seasonal flu that kills about 35,000 people annually and its overall mortality rate is about 0.15 overall while Covid-19 is about 2.0 percent. That would imply that if it spreads and infects as many people as the seasonal flu, the resulting death toll could be over a half-million people if we don't get a handle on this. Considering how younger people seem to have few symptoms, it is going to be a very BIG challenge to keep this from spreading rapidly everywhere.

    Scientists discover Earth has a second (very tiny) moon... A visiting mini-moon is circling Earth, according to astronomers who discovered the cosmic squatter in our planet's orbit. The tiny asteroid, dubbed 2020 CD3, was spotted by astronomers in Tucson, Arizona, on Feb. 15. "BIG NEWS," Kacper Wierzchos, a researcher with the Catalina Sky Survey at the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Lab, tweeted Tuesday. "Earth has a new temporarily captured object/Possible mini-moon called 2020 CD3. On the night of Feb. 15, my Catalina Sky Survey teammate Teddy Pruyne and I found a 20th magnitude object."

    In full disclosure...many years ago when my business was young, I was living in a west Cobb subdivision and working out of my home. I was starting an installation division in my company, and I bought a box truck so I could carry the materials and equipment needed for that type of work. I parked the box truck on the end of my house every night, and eventually poured concrete to extend my driveway to handle it. A neighbor in the back of the subdivision started to complain about my truck. He first came down to announce to me that he disapproved of my truck and didn't want it there, and when I advised him that I really didn't care what he thought, he tried to have the county force me to park my truck elsewhere. Problem was...the county ordinance only applied to truck 1.5 ton and over, and my truck was 1.25 ton, so it fell under the law. There was nothing he could do about it. The man continued to pitch a fit; went around the neighborhood trying to get signatures on a petition, which he failed at. He even sent out flyers, trying to build support to oppose my truck. But the other neighbors knew that my truck didn't bother them, and that I was a good friend to them. But that didn't stop the guy, one 95 degree day, from calling me, begging for help when his air conditioner was down and he couldn't get anyone to come out for a few days. I was the bigger man; I went and fixed his air conditioner, and charged him a fair price. He didn't complain about my truck after that, but I really didn't care if he did because he was the jerk in the situation. I rose above the petty crap and was a good neighbor to him. We sold that house a few years later at more than asking price and moved to Paulding. We bought acreage, in part because of that guy who though he should be able to tell me what I could and couldn't do on my own property. I will never again live in a subdivision, much less one with a covenant. I've built my own little piece of paradise here and my neighbors have nothing to say about it. But they wouldn't anyway, because I have helped them out on multiple occasions, and they know that I'm a good guy that they can count on. Live and let live.
