  • SPORTS MOMENT: I'm a highschool senior visiting a friend at OSU who just started his freshman year. I go to the OSU - Iowa game, when Iowa was #1. We're in the south stands. Byars, Carter, Pepper Johnson, Spielman. Rained quite a bit. Spielman gets a 4th qtr interception. We run down onto the field afterwards, patting the football players on their shoulderpadst. Goalpost comes down right on top of us. I actually have a hand on the goalpost as we carry it out of the stadium and down to Papa Joes. (I had no clue where I was at the time). I knew where I would spend the next 4 years of my life after that night.

I have a friend in London who got this from a fellow therapist in Scotland. This was sent out to all staff at the Princess of Wales Hospital. This is the hospital's guidelines and educational tool for all employees. There isn't a link available.

Here's the best dissemination of information I've been able to find regarding detection and prevention.  Everything is summed up very nicely, especially the detection part.  NHS was just sent this from Scotland.  Education is vital!

Virus Detection:

The simplest way to distinguish Coronavirus from a Common Cold is that the COVID-19 infection does not cause a cold nose or cough with cold, but it does create a dry and rough cough.
The virus is typically first installed in the throat causing inflammation and a feeling of dryness. This symptom can last between 3 and 4 days.
The virus typically then travels through the moisture present in the airways, goes down to the trachea and installs in the lungs, causing pneumonia that lasts about 5 or 6 days.
Pneumonia manifests with a high fever and difficulty breathing. The Common Cold is not accompanied, but there may be a choking sensation. In this case, the doctor should be called immediately.

Experts suggest doing this simple verification every morning: Breathe in deeply and hold your breath for 10 seconds. If this can be done without coughing, without difficulty, this shows that there is no fibrosis in the lungs, indicating the absence of infection. It is recommended to do this control every morning to help detect infection.

Prevention:
The virus hates heat and dies if it is exposed to temperatures greater than 80°F (27°C). Therefore hot drinks such as infusions, broths or simply hot water should be consumed abundantly during the day. These hot liquids kill the virus and are easy to ingest.
Avoid drinking ice water or drinks with ice cubes.

Ensure that your mouth and throat are always wet, never DRY. You should drink a sip of water at least every 15 minutes. WHY? Even when the virus enters water or other liquids through the mouth, it will get flushed through the oesophagus directly into the stomach where gastric acids destroy the virus. If there is not enough water, the virus can pass into the trachea and from there to the lungs, where it is very dangerous.

For those who can, sunbathe. The Sun's UV rays kill the virus and the vitamin D is good for you.
The Coronavirus has a large size (diameter of 400-500 nanometers) so face masks can stop it, no special face masks are needed in daily life.
If an infected person sneezes nearby, stay 10 feet (3.3 meters) away to allow the virus fall to the ground and prevent it from falling on you.
When the virus is on hard surfaces, it survives about 12 hours, therefore when hard surfaces such as doors, appliances, railings, etc. are touched, hands should be washed thoroughly and/or disinfected with alcoholic gel The virus can live nested in clothes and tissues between 6 and 12 hours. Common detergents can kill it. Things that cannot be washed should be exposed to the Sun and the virus will die.
The transmission of the virus usually occurs by direct infection, touching fabrics, tissues or materials on which the virus is present.
Washing your hands is essential.
The virus survives on our hands for only about 10 minutes. In that time many things can happen, rubbing the eyes, touching the nose or lips. This allows the virus to enter your throat. Therefore, for your good and the good of all, wash your hands very often and disinfect them.
You can gargle with disinfectant solutions (i.e. Listerine or Hydrogen Peroxide) that eliminate or minimize the amount of virus that can enter the throat. Doing so removes the virus before it goes down to the trachea and then to the lungs.
Disinfect things touched often: mobile phone, keyboard, mouse, car steering wheel, door handles, etc ....

Fun facts - 1 - We now have more 4 and 5 stars committed than the entire PAC 10 combined. 2 - We now have more 4 and 5 stars committed than the entire Big 12 combined.

I'm the same way with blue and yellow. My wife came home once with a blue and yellow sippy cup for our daughter, and I promptly threw it in the trash. If I'm eating M&M's, I make sure never to eat a blue and yellow one back to back. I also make sure my blue and yellow highlighters aren't next to each other in my desk. The orange or pink one is always in between. My wife thinks I'm nuts, but I think it's just using good common sense!

Luckily a friend of mine told me they were coming thru town, or I never would've known.  I love their self titled first album.  It has a live version of In A Daydream, and also my favorite song of theirs Peace by Piece.  The whole album is really good.

It's been a great year for seeing shows already!  Saw Umphrey's in Columbus. Mike Gordon, and The Freddy Jones Band in Cincinnati - all were in January.  Saw Greensky Bluegrass on Tuesday.  Railroad Earth is coming to Cincy in March, and Bruce Hornsby in April.  Will see DMB in June, and head out to Red Rocks sometime this year.  Phish will be in Noblesville as well, in August.

A minute and a half of nothing but machine gun fire.  The neighbors can here it every time I watch this.

Mickies Dairy Bar for breakfast.  You won't regret it.

As mentioned above,  State Street for going to a bar.  Last time I saw Ohio State up in Madison, they played Hang On Sloopy on the jukebox for a solid 15 minutes before someone turned it off.  All the buckeye fans were having a blast!

I can't think of a program that has historically done less with more.

right across the Ohio River to the northern tip of America's Cancer Belt, where Kentucky is one of 12 remaining states that still feature indoor smoking as a tourist attraction.

That's just straight up funny.
