As you know, X5 of COIVD deaths are people over 65. So, it’s super important we keep this demo safe. So, this drone delivery is just what we need. We want to keep those centers safe and free from new contacts, including those who have the necessary prescriptions for seniors.
Each drone can carry up to 5 lbs. each and travel up to 12 miles. They fly autonomously from a CVS location to nearby assisted living and nursing homes, then drop off the packages from a hover height of around 20 feet above these locations.
These are scary times, and it’s fascinating to see how some great minds and companies are being creative and coming up with technical solutions so we can be in contact with our loved ones, without getting too close.
An example I saw yesterday:

Trump has now posted an unfathomable 200 tweets or retweets today — the most of any day of his presidency

There’s a report about the masks worn in Japan and how that, because its part of its culture, it was a big reason they were able to avoid the massive deaths that we and others have seen
Still thinking about how people were like “not all cops!” then literally all cops in Buffalo were like “no, it’s all of us”

I want to remind you that statues aren’t history books and that taking one down isn’t erasing history. It’s more like finally taking a Sublime poster off your wall. It’s over. Let’s move on.

At My House
Diane has been handling the kiddos during the day and I’ve been in the garage working. During a typical day we don’t actually talk that much. It’s a problem. To fix it we’ve brought back Date Night.
How did we do it? This past week we cleared out our storage shed and set up a place to eat and hang out. We also talked to Hunter (age 7) about being in charge for two hours and making sure Sasha (age 5) and him ate their dinner, watched a movie and were generally happy. He loved the responsibility.
We then ordered some sushi and went to the shed at 5pm and had a great time together until 7pm, just the two of us. Intentionally making time to connect was one of the best things I’ve done over the past few weeks. It’s such a simple idea, but given that we have two little kids that usually dominate our attention, we were able to talk and connect in a way we can’t on a typical night. Super fun.
I want to go on record with obvious point: large gatherings of people facilitate spread of contagious disease. The *reason* for the gathering (whether street protests for a cause I support, or GOP convention, or a sporting event) is not material to the spread of the virus. 1/

In North Carolina and Arizona, increased testing suggests that infections are still climbing quickly and may spike further as more people venture out.
In New York, a ‘big sigh of relief’ as the daily death toll falls to 35, but you can see from the graphs below that cases spiked yesterday. We’ll see what that means in the future.
That’s it. Hope you have a great Sunday!
