Daily review is also your post.
This provides Standardistas the opportunity to review events of the day.
The usual rules of good behaviour apply (see the Policy).
Don’t forget to be kind to each other …
Great. Stand by for a run on already hard to get Isopropyl alcohol and Aloe Vera gel.
Honestly, who writes this shit?
And, what's wrong with soap?
In my neck of the woods there's not squirt bottle of sanitiser to be had but iso is available by the drum and aloe grows wild.
Of course. Everyone, there's a barrel on every street corner, right next to seven types of wild Aloe.
We have lots going for us here in the provinces.
It's a useful recipe, and we need others. The aloe will run out pretty quickly if that one goes viral.
while we're at it. If you think you might run out of toilet paper, remember that millions of people use water instead, google ahead of time so you know what to do in a hygienic way.
A bucket of water and a ladle. Or a bum gun.
Vodka and aloe works too.
Aloe is only in the recipe to soothe the skin.
There probably won't be enough aloe to go around is my point (eg if we end up with 6 months or a year of this).
Also no chance of the bat virus, neither.
But I'm 100ks closer to Inglewood than I'd like to be.
Not sure why you'd promote an American meme when it has no relevance here whatsoever.
I grew up in Taranaki. There's something going on in Inglewood.
Second-hand furniture shops, for one.
Do you mean you think we won't come into contact with COVID? Possibly, but also quite possible that we will.
Eco-warriors upset Oily Jones.
Awesome, they're at it again.
Interesting read. It is legal for OMV to put them separate rooms with a guard on the door so they can't leave or talk to each other?
They're at sea. The skipper is god.
do you mean legally? Even in NZ waters?
Yup, a skipper’s authority is absolute. Same goes for aircraft, too.
Repug’s dry run putting the fix in. They'll pull all the stops in November..
The 50 counties that saw the highest growth in black and Latino population had 542 polling sites close between 2012 and 2018, while the 50 counties with the lowest black and Latino population growth saw just 34 closures. The closures came despite the population in the top 50 counties rising by 2.5 million while the 50 counties that had just 34 closures saw their population fall by 13,000.
"This is voter suppression — plain and simple," said the progressive advocacy group MoveOn.
WTF is wrong with Patrick Gower and Mediaworks?
He doorsteps Bernie Sanders on Super Tuesday. What was he hoping for – to be invited in for breakfast and a global exclusive?
The pot has gone to his head.
Wonder how much that ego-driven jaunt cost the company? Perhaps they should have paid the power bill instead…
It's embarrassingly poor. And extremely low percentage journalism. He stalked Sanders like he was a criminal for his own gain.
Mediaworks execs signed off on this. They have been making some seriously shitty decisions lately. Hannah Tamaki for instance…
As if we didn't know already, Gower does stunts for Gower only, not for the public.
What an arsehole.
Simon gets savaged by Siouxsie Wiles, an associate professor in molecular medicine and pathology.
My Sharona was the song which stood in the way of Split Enz going global.
Time to mobilize and put the army territorials on the streets I think, they'll be far better responding to a health crisis than the Keystone Docs approach currently in place.
Not even simon the scaremonger is going that far. Chill out and wash your hands more often.
Great to be back maui, my friend.
Look forward to some interesting discussions.
Sounds like you and I agree on the correct response to corona virus.
Socialism, not the free market, is best placed to deal with existential social crises.
Time for the government to take control of the economy and nationalise key state assets in the interests of the many.
"The Amazon could turn into a source of carbon in the atmosphere, instead of one of the biggest absorbers of the gas, as soon as the next decade, owing to the damage caused by loggers and farming interests and the impacts of the climate crisis, new research has found."
