Apparently there are dozens of antibody tests in production, but I can't order one delivered to my house. That needs to be fixed right now.

Trump sez he will rescue oil. Will that be via free market Capitalism, or by some evil Socialist trick?

I was thinking tonight as I enjoyed chicken cacciatore is that capitalism is no match for a pandemic, is it?

Hmm

I'm working from home. Attending a lot of training classes and taking a few refresher classes. Working on projects that have been put on the back burner. For me, this slow-down has allowed me to catch a breath and catch-up at work.

Great idea! Lots of professionals need CE credits to maintain their license. My wife (the vet) would be doing that if she wasn't retired. Not as much fun as the giant Western States Conference in Los Vegas, but something they can do from home.

Rescuing oil is rather silly. If there isn't a market and no place to store any more, they just have to stop pumping for a while. They don't make any money in the meanwhile, but they already have most of the money on Earth. Funny that short-term future contracts have negative value. That means whoever holds the contract is going to have to accept their oil and pay for somebody to store it until it can be sold. Commodity traders are filling their pants because they have always sold their contracts before delivery, and have no infrastructure to actually receive the oil. I guess you could fill your backyard with oil barrels, but then you have to actually buy the barrels and pay for the freight from the port.

I heard, this morning, that there is one on Amazon for 150.00

Then I read your post again. There is a test for covid-9 (if you have it) for 150.00 not for the blood test thing.

I also heard that there were over 70 full blown tests for vaccines going on - right now.

There are also, apparently, 5 ongoing tests for medicines to deal with Covid-19 and, again apparently, they are all showing promise.

The UofW is also rolling out an antibody test by Abbot Laboratories 15 hours ago this was posted:

Apparently you can order a test, from the University of Washington, at (for 200.00):

Things are moving right along!

I think I heard him say that he had restored our oil reserve by thousands of barrels. Not sure but thought I would post this.
