TODAY’s rate compared to yesterday’s.


For yesterday’s post.


In reality U.S. rate might be actually lower —
IF more tests had been done to identify more cases.

So, these numbers and rates STILL reflect inadequate testing.


I didn’t do all the countries today.

Just U.S. and Italy.

The rate is going UP. Not good.

Italy’s death rate defines explanation.

U.K. NOT doing too well either.

Interesting to note those of Germany, Austria & Canada. Countries noted for good health care.

His work, i.e., that of Egon Schiele, is being glorified in in Boston, at the MAGNIFICENT Museum of Fine Arts, alongside that of his mentor and compatriot Gustav Klimt.

But, the Austrian Tourist Board using his nudes to promote travel to Austria and that is not going down well in certain puritanical quarters.

While it would be crass to call his nudes controversial, they sure are provocative — and that is both good and bad. They definitely attract attention, which is beneficial but it also means that some  folks will take umbrage to them.

That the Austrians got the necessary permissions and permits from NYC is a miracle in its own right. Even if they are now forced to take the ads. down, Austria shure would have got their monies worth, if not more from the added publicity they managed to garner. It is very possible that they actually bargained that they might be able to provoke a controversy and with that lost of media coverage. Well they succeeded.

The British Captured ‘The Rock Of Gibraltar’ This Day 313-Years Ago From ; August 4, 1704, From Spain.

Claims that the capture took place on August 3, 1704 are one day OUT! The battle for ‘The Rock‘ started August 3 but the Spanish garrison did not capitulate until the next day, i.e., August 4.

Also note that it was NOT a straightforward British conquest as is often assumed. To start with it was a British-Dutch fleet that captured it and it was done on behalf of Austria!

Britain did not get ‘Gib’ did 9 years later, in 1713.
