NYC said today that the # of cases or deaths increase was less than the day before, first time that has happened. Not sure what this means, they think that things will be worse this week and possibly get better soon.
Sunny and cooler, still only in the 60’s but it was around 38 this am, and I’ve got all my plants outside on the deck now. Yikes.
Working at home today I got quite a bit more done as far as the web comments for raising canes. I also did the eye can see for the holding tank details but I know I’m missing something new that I have to put in another ASP file in order to actually get the data in there. I felt like I didn’t really put enough hours in I just need to finish off the iKMC stuff spent too much trying time trying to figure out what I messed up this far as getting a GMC the run on my local machine.it’s not like I didn’t really put enough hours in I just need to finish off the iKMC stuff spent too much trying time trying to figure out what I messed up just far as getting I can see the run on my local machine.
Decided this afternoon that it was past six that I would head on over to Taco Mac pick up some dinner see what they had as far as beers and a beer mug glass. I ended up getting a growler they seem to have growlers now they’re not returnable I guess but who cares about that. Ended up getting the Sweetwater train wreck IPA it’s actually a similar to the G 13 strain.
Cheryl was working the bar ordered myself up a train right now chose got a train wreck growler full of beer and had a reformation Ray imperial I PA that was too fruity into but like an IPAA. Couple other people were in an out some of the very logical most of them very logical. None of them came in masks in on whatever so I obviously they are there for them selves.
Nicki mentioned that Georgia is supposed to be under some sort of martial law kind of thing they’re going to have the national guard running around making people comply with staying long I’m not sure exactly what that means although we’re supposed to be able to go to the grocery store and go to gas stations drug stores also food but I don’t know if they’re going to decide if that’s not OK now. I think this is total motherfucking bullshit because honestly I think we should probably be turning around and just Sucking it up then seeing what happens
What’s funny about this to me is the idea that we should be at least aware of whatever the end game is. Which means at the end of all this how do they wanted to play out they just want us to slowly yeah they want like 10 people a day to get the virus and then just take care of them, I don’t know.
I cut the sections for the small wall in the attic upstairs off the master bedroom. Got them all screwed up as well. Almost looks like a little room now, although quite rough.
Watched some TV again, wow not like I’ve done much else at night lately. Watched an episode of Witcher, still not really into it.
On March 27, 2020, The US House of Representatives passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES ACT). The 2.2 trillion stimulus measure is the largest federal response in history aimed at providing much-needed relief to the American people and businesses in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The measure provides direct financial help to Americans; immediate assistance for hospitals, healthcare first responders, and patients; support for small businesses; and assistance for distressed industries. We expect President Trump to sign the bill into law in short order.
Ensures that all testing for COVID-19 is covered by private insurance plans, with free coverage of a vaccine within 15 days for COVID-19 when such a vaccine is available.
For eligible small businesses, sole proprietors, independent contractors, and other self-employed individuals the Act provides $349 billion through federally backed loans under a modified and expanded Small Business Administration (SBA) 7(a) loan guaranty program. These loans can be used to pay for utilities, rent, mortgage, and payroll. Borrowers are eligible for loan forgiveness for the first 8 weeks of the loan. The Small Business Administration has no more than 15 days after the date of enactment to issue regulations.
The measure provides $500 billion to the Department of Treasury’s exchange stabilization fund for use in loans, loan guarantees, and other investments for distressed businesses that do not qualify for the small business relief. This includes direct lending of $25 billion for passenger air carriers, $4 billion for cargo air carriers, and $17 billion for businesses determined to be important to national security. The remaining $454 billion is eligible for direct lending to distressed businesses meeting specified criteria. These provisions also include prohibitions on recipients of relief engaging in stock buybacks, and all loans must be used to retain at least 90 percent of the workforce.
For those who lost employment because of the pandemic, the measure provides robust unemployment insurance, including for self-employed, independent contractors, and those with limited work history. The assistance will include an additional $600 per week for each recipient and provides an additional 13 weeks of benefits to those who remain unemployed after state unemployment benefits are no longer available.
U.S. individual taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of up to $75,000 ($150,000 joint) are eligible for a full $1,200 ($2,400 joint) rebate, and an additional rebate of $500 per child. Americans will not be required to do anything to receive a rebate check, as the IRS will use a taxpayer’s 2019 tax return or their 2018 return if they have not yet filed. The rebate is reduced by $5 for each $100 of the taxpayer’s income that exceeds $75,000 and completely phases out at $99,000.
