Race & Nasal Resistance to COVID (A #GamerGirl Story)

those with wider noses should be more vigilant about wearing masks given their higher susceptibility

Although race is just a virtual construct in MMORPG, adapting to COVID19 requires that some phenotypic components of that social construct be considered.

Connectivism vs. Egoism in Humanity’s Most Digital Year

If you’ve ever used the internet — or utilized Zoom for anything this year — you know that our virtual public sphere is currently more interconnected than at any point in human history. So if you want to take individual extra precautions, please do so. If you want to take individual unnecessary risks because civil liberties… well, looks we won’t be fighting for parking spots at the mall for last minute Christmas shopping this year.

5 Ways To Be More Introverted

Dear introverts… it’s coming soon. Yes, socially distancing is easy (especially if you’re Black). Yes, you’ve been doing everything right. Yes, your life is being harmed due to the actions of others.

Reason #??? — Not sure where this one will go but…

Remember Reason 3 was Mask-ulinity & a key finding was that men are least likely to wear a mask when walking with women… because muscles are too big for virus & he doesn’t need a mask.

If only transhumanism could alter genes so everyone would #WearAMask

Ongoing COVID Sidenotes (this material is just going to be repeated in each article)

→ Mask Selection (Iahn Gonsenhauser, MD, Buckeyes)
“It’s best to use a mask that’s thick enough or has enough layers (two to three is recommended) that you can’t see light through it easily when you hold it up to sunlight. If light can get through it, respiratory droplets likely can, too.”

→ Don’t sing in crowded areas with alcohol (alcohol reduces immune functioning)

Emission rates for singing were compared with data for breathing and speaking. Significantly higher emission rates were found for singing. The growth rates between singing and speaking were between 3.97 and 99.54” (Murbe et al., the year is obvious)

→ Introverts are still doing fine

but would prefer if our lives weren’t held back again because some individuals decided partying on New Years Eve was worth the risk.
