Trump’s COVID Task Force Concedes They’ll Never Get Trumpers to Wear Masks

As President Donald Trump received treatment for the coronavirus at Walter Reed Medical Center last week, he and his aides worked on the stagecraft for his big return home. It needed to be showy and it would require television networks to have their cameras pointed at the White House during the beginning of their primetime shows.Disembarking from Marine One, Trump walked across the lawn, climbed two flights of stairs to the balcony of the residence, looked directly at the cameras and removed his mask. It was as overly dramatic as it was medically dangerous.

For scientists, doctors, and even those who work

4 Essential Decor Elements to Every Room

Posted on

(4 min read) See, as much as I’d like to start this post with “I was visiting so and so the other day blah blah blah”, I can’t do that with a clear conscience. First of all, we all know it would be a blatant lie because the world is quarantining and secondly, it would send a bad message to everyone out there who are trying their best not to leave their homes. On the same note, I figure this type of post will do us some good, because we are bound to get sick of our home interiors at this point, so some renovations will be in order once all of this is over.

Keep these basic, yet essential cleaning items for a germ-free home.

USA TODAY

STAUNTON – On Saturday morning, the Lowe’s on Richmond Avenue was abuzz. The parking lot was full and people were flocking to the main entrance or garden center. 

Even after Virginia Governor Ralph Northam gave an executive order to stay-at-home last week, people were still filling their truck beds with mulch and other gardening items. Some donned face masks and gloves. Inside, some workers had gloves and masks, while others did not. Large plastic screens had been put up near registers and customer service areas.

Lowe’s, Home Depot and other home improvement stores have been deemed essential (which are home improvement, hardware, building material and building supply) retailers.

Here are some of my all-time favorite gadgets to make your cooking life better.
