Remember how CBS aired inaccurate hospital footage last week?
Well they've done it again right here.
Oh, I wonder why people distrust the media.....pfffft.
Is she a real nurse, yes. Is this story or how it was presented even remotely true, apparently not. https://t.co/Y5Zgrb3ZuF
Working in Arlington VA right now. I’m an essential construction superintendent renovating an office space for people that won’t be back till June sooo super essential. My company has a Microsoft teams company wide messenger app. For the past 3 days all they do is complain and take about how hard it is to work from home while sharing pictures of there dogs and kids. Meanwhile I’m here on site everyday having to do my normal job while also policing people to stay away from each other and only 3 to an elevator. When one person coughs the whole site pauses. I can literally see the fear is people’s eyes when they come in for work in the AM. I make a decent salary and I’m really worried about my future. The laborers, framers and flooring guys don’t make much but they have to come in or they get fired and replaced. This whole thing is a big eye opener on how people that owns business will put people at risk to protect there bottom line. 85% of the construction work right now is not essential at all. My brother is a superintendent in California and he has to take temperatures every morning at a site with over 200 people a day. He said it’s an absolute nightmare. Oh and I asked for mask from my company and they said unless it’s for dust no you can’t have it because it will scare the clients.
It is a major international hub, just like NYC. If you look at the progression from 2.5 weeks ago when NY and NJ shut everything down, Philadelphia followed a week later. Wilmington, Baltimore, and then DC are the ends of the NE corridor.
**Betteridge's law of headlines**
Betteridge's law of headlines is an adage that states: "Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no". It is named after Ian Betteridge, a British technology journalist who wrote about it in 2009, although the principle is much older. As with similar "laws" (e.g., Murphy's law), it is intended to be humorous rather than the literal truth. The adage fails to make sense with questions that are more open-ended than strict yes-no questions.The maxim has been cited by other names since 1991, when a published compilation of Murphy's Law variants called it "Davis's law", a name that also crops up online (such as cited by linguist Mark Liberman), without any explanation of who Davis was.
