Re: COVID19

The reasons why the U.S. isn’t on track to open up Labs nationwide are overwhelmed by patient samples flooding in as they continue to face a shortage of critical supplies. https://www.politico.com/news/2020/04/07/coronavirus-testing-173607?fbclid=IwAR1bnaRsWQmjgN5vsJqA41w_sRKs6TsqyeD_1kRKKTXNZE4thb...

Re: Plaza move-ins (ongoing)

Yeah the timing may be right to sell Plaza in pieces and allow it to evolve organically, while still having some form of a district/neighborhood association for big picture planning and establishing aesthetic standards.

Re: COVID19

There's no great rush to get the workforce back -- most of what "the economy" produces is completely superfluous.
Wow, OK.

Re: COVID19

^Hope you're right but we need to find creative ways to get workforce back as so far there's no sign of contact tracing effectively in place in US yet or when this started. And you're saying we shouldn't start until conditions are right, right? We need to find other ways to get workforce back, not w...

Re: COVID19

Literally my entire argument was that we need to work to create conditions where contact tracing can be effective. My response head on was that the US as a whole likely can't effectively pull off contract tracing at *any* point due to cultural and discipline differences vs. Asia - the two links pro...

Re: Sprint Center opening day pictures

Though with no sports anchor outsiders may not go for it. And if we head toward a recession/depression, chances even lower. Telcom likely to be less impacted by economic downturn so Tmobile might end up keeping the contract and add it to their Sprint rebranding efforts over time. As Fang mentioned, ...

Re: COVID19

On US employment impact, 10M jobless claims in last 2 weeks, which puts employment level down to upper 140Ms. If we get another 6M or more reported this week (Thursday), could be about 142M or lower. In 2 weeks hopefully jobless claims slow down but potentially we may see 10 years worth of job gains...

That's the Singapore/S Korea tracing method you've been touting, and agree it's the most ideal but they managed this before out of control. We're already past that and US/state govts may not be disciplined enough to pull off that method, especially with domestic flights still active and hotspot regi...

Re: COVID19

^So how many do you think need to be tested before allowing non-essential workforce to return? There's about 160M in labor force. And might need random tests every week of those previously tested as well.
