Amtrak News
Marshall Depot Board shares Amtrak’s plans to restore staffing that was eliminated in 2018 at the Amtrak station in Marshall, Texas and 14 other cities nationwide

Passenger rail advocates from the Marshall Depot Board of Directors shared exciting news on Wednesday that Amtrak is in the process of restoring, in the coming month to six weeks, the paid Customer Service Representative positions at the Marshall, Texas station, as well as the staffing of 14 cities nationwide, which were all eliminated by Amtrak in 2018.

Christina Anderson, member of the Marshall Depot Board and I-20 Corridor Council, who, along with her husband former Harrison County Judge and former Texas State Senator Richard Anderson, headed up the local and regional grassroot efforts in 2018 to urge Amtrak to not eliminate the important staffing at the Marshall station and the other stations nationwide, shared the following statement, on behalf of the Marshall Depot Board:

CORONAVIRUS INFO PROVIDED BY DR. JIM HARRIS – 5/28/2020
May 26, 2020

Harrison County Judge Chad Sims reported six new positive cases in his county, bumping that total up to 240. He said the county has recorded 71 recoveries.

Potentially overlooked due to the total volume of cases in the United States and the growing incidence in Brazil, Chile, and Peru, Mexico’s COVID-19 epidemic is also exhibiting a concerning acceleration. Mexico is currently #5 in the Americas in terms of daily incidence and #8 globally. Mexico has reported a total of 74,560 cases, including 3,455 new cases, its highest daily total to date.

‘It’s Not The Virus’: Mexico’s Broken Hospitals Become Killers, Too—FROM THE NYT

SARS-CoV-2 MONITORING IN SEWAGE Researchers from Yale University (Connecticut, US) published (preprint) findings from a study that evaluated the presence of SARS-CoV-2 virus in a local sewage system. The study aimed to determine the potential for monitoring SARS-CoV-2 presence and concentration in sewage systems to provide insight into the level of local community transmission.

Data Tool Launched to Provide Free Updates About Open Businesses Amid COVID-19

Edmund Wood is over my head with his mathematic ability. He is able to understand, analyze, compress, and chart meaningful data.

Right now, as I analyze this data, things are looking better locally. It will be interesting to rechart everything in a couple of weeks and see if we hurt ourselves over the holiday and with more reopenings. Notice that he is concerned today with ACTIVE CASES LOCALLY in the first graph and ACTIVE CASES IN TEXAS on the second chart.

FROM EDMUND WOOD: I am enclosing a couple of graphs – active cases of Harrison County, with a second line of a calculation by me of active cases based on: active cases = total of new cases added to active case count each day, LESS each day’s new cases deducted from the running total of active cases after 14 days, LESS each day’s fatalities, LESS unexplained deductions from the active cases by the TSDHS.

Decoration Day from THE ATLANTIC

By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Sleep, comrades, sleep and rest
On this Field of Grounded Arms,
Where foes no more molest,
Nor sentry’s shot alarms!

***

Ye have slept on the ground before,
And started to your feet
At the cannon’s sudden roar,
Or the drum’s redoubling beat.

CORONAVIRUS INFO PROVIDED BY DR. JIM HARRIS – 5/24/2020

Some new testing information: FURTHER CLARIFICATION ABOUT COVID 19 TESTS: The diagnosis of COVID-19 is typically made by detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in respiratory specimens using nucleic acid amplification tests (NAATs), primarily reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). (Best antigen or acute testJH)

Tests that identify SARS-CoV-2 antigen in respiratory specimens offer the possibility of point-of-care testing but are generally less sensitive than PCR. (More commonly used antigen test, cheaper, not as good, helpful if positive JH)

Serologic tests that detect antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in the blood may be able to identify some patients with current infection (particularly those who present late in the course of illness), but they are less likely to be reactive in the first several days to weeks of infection.(Best test to tell you if you have had Covid, or sometimes if you still have it)

smith: To my friends and political frienemies
By George Smith

To my friends and political frienemies who are hardcore on the Trump train. I feel for you, I really do. Carrying around that much angry and delusion is a burden.

And to those who believe immigrants are taking certain jobs:

Few WASPs over the age of 16 in this country would agree to do stoop labor or haul hay or pick peaches for anything less that $12-$15 an hour. And after one dawn to dusk shift, even that is iffy.

It’s called community culture. Some folks run to hard labor because it is necessary, while others run just as hard in the other direction because they hate hard work.

I decided to go to college when I was 14; that was the summer I tried picking tomatoes and cucumbers and hauling hay.

Nope. Nada.

Uh-uh. Nyet.

The fact that some folks think U.S. citizens raised on social media, video games and hip-hop are going to do stoop labor is laughable and ludicrous.
