I have compiled some links below for you to explore over the weekend.
During these times, I believe it is important to find some humor and keep our minds sharp. To this end, I find “paraprosdokians” helpful. Paraprosdokians are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected, usually in a humorous way.
In fact, Sir Winston Churchill loved them. Moving forward, I intend to include some of these figures of speech in my updates, so we can all keep our minds sharp, and hopefully find some humor as well!
“Since light travels faster than sound,
some people appear bright
until you hear them speak.”
Tips for Grocery Shopping and Eating Take Out
I found this informational video helpful. It has tips to help reduce your risk when you go out in the marketplace. Specifically, he recommends using the “sterile technique” to reduce your risk of contracting the virus as you bring food into your home.
State by State Data
This site has the state by state breakdown on cases, including projections for the next few months ahead. I would encourage you to check it out!
Real Time Global COVID-19 Data: Check This Out
In addition to the local data, you can check out www.ncov2019.live/data, which tracks the total number of COVID-19 cases by country, including confirmed cases, daily changes, confirmed deaths, and recoveries. The website is designed and managed by a 17-year-old high school student from King County named Avi Schiffmann.
Please note, the website pulls data from public health websites around the world every minute, but not every country reports the data uniformly.
Stay Healthy. Stay Strong.
