I work in analytics for Polaris.
Just talked with a Polaris engineer who told me the check book is closed.

Talked with another engineer of an axle mfr who said he's on furlough, as sales dropped 80%....they are a supplier to the camper industry, which is basically shut down right now.

These are not exceptions. Plummeting demand + cash hoarding = zero capex spending for this year....and it will spill over to next year.

With gloves, make sure you dispose of them. They aren't meant to be used over and over as you are just transferring germs as you move from your house, to the store, etc.
I can't see gloves as being very helpful for shopping. Let's say you need milk. You use your gloved hand on a filthy door handle to open the dairy cooler. Now that glove is dirty. Then you pick up some other items. Haven't you transferred the germs from the door handle to the other items the same as if you were bare handed?
I get my groceries, keep my distance, use hand sanitizer in the car. When I get home wash my hands after getting the groceries inside. Put the groceries away rinse and repeat. The key is not touching your face.

Then sanitize the counter where the groceries were. I really don’t see why you need gloves if you are careful.

Also seeing more masked store employees and Cub has the glass divider at checkout. So many people have common sense and yet there always has to be a few dimwits out shopping.

Just heard Allina is furloughing all nonessential doctors and nurses after April 12th

Medical Device. The reason for the change is a drastic drop in demand as hospitals focus on sick patients, elective surgeries are be deferred and not done. Even in some cases, which are more severe like Italy, they aren't putting in Pacemakers after Heart Attacks as they dont ahve the capacity to deal with non-Covid cases

I used to be a "Scaffoldologist" during outages in a Nuke plant. The peocedures I had drilled into me then is good now. When we "dressed out" you had on rubber globes over cloth gloves. You worked taking off what had the potential to be " dirtiest" to cleanedt & then from top down. IE rubber protective booties over cloth boot covers were 1st off and into trash. Then yellow coveralls into laundy bin. Then paper hard hat cover to trash.
Now rubber gloves to trash.
Now cloth boot covers to trash.
Finally cloth inner gloves to trash.

Nitrile gloves under mechanic gloves is my eventual plan with the mechanic gloves being washed.
Every thing store bought is now washed 1st before being put away.
I never realized that I have a nervous habit of scratching my chin / pulling on mu goatee until I was "dressed out" doing millwright support on the MNGS turbine deck & a Rad Protection worker busted me touching my face with a rubber glove my first outage. Standing up against the contamination barrier ( a yellow caution tape hung on stanchion poles) while she reached in with a geiger counter type wand to see if I was clean caught my attention. I was given a break and didn't get walked out the gate.

Thought about putting this in the baseball thread, but it is Coronavirus related.

American Legion cancelled their summer baseball season already. Doesn’t bode well for my kids 12 year old season of Little League..
"Hard work will beat talent, if talent doesn't work hard"
Doug Woog - 1990

This quote was written on the chalkboard in a lockeroom in the old Ralph Engelstad arena my Squirt team used the day after the Gophers used it and came into the game ranked #1 in the nation and lost 6-1 to a second rate Whioux team.

Overhead on SiouxSports.com - Why does every thread always turn into a "Gopher" thread? Is there a secret infatuation with them?

A buddy of mine who works in IT at Delta seems to think United or American will not survive this for sure. Delta will take a handout, but United or American are in rough shape already and this will put them over the edge.

I just bought tickets to Orlando for the week before school starts. They were $216 round trip.

We figure even if this isn’t all sorted out we get a free change and the one year to complete travel will cover Spring Break next year. If it’s still a mess I’m sure they’ll extend cancellations again and we will use the tickets.

There are some interesting graphs and data on the MN Department of Public Health website around COVID 19, if you're like me and like to look at things from an analytical/statistical view. They have tons of breakdowns by age, transmission, location, and more:

I think lot of people see what's happening in New York and its starting to sink in. I see more people at work doing the social distancing thing on the job. I still have people at work that will walk right up to me and start talking. Management has given all the right guidelines from the bunker they are in, but I am doing less backing up each day.

Masks will be a national recommendation within 48 hours.

N95's will be reserved for those that need them most until there are enough for more than that.

I think I know the company and heard through aunts that the newspapers broke the news before employees knew.

My company will do 80% next, if not worse. 80% means 32 hours a week and therefore doesn't qualify for unemployment, so that will be a pretty common number.

My manufacturing company did across the board 10% pay reduction and no pay increases this next year cycle. 2 days off a month without pay is much better than losing your job. Top executives said they are taking a larger hit. All said and done, 57,000 employees throughout the world with my corporation affected. This occurring with most of our plants considered essential. Scary times.

My company (industrial supply) has seen business rise, due to paper products/PPE/etc. We received a pay bump (good from March 22 until at least the end of April), since we can't work at home, and just put in close to a 55 hour week (a hair shy of 36 hours in the last 3 days).

Since I work with only one other person (plus 4 truck drivers who pick up product) at my building (22.5K sq ft warehouse), the social distancing is easy at my building. Our main building, they are doing what they can, adding extra precautions like wiping EVERYTHING down about every half hour.

I get it.
But as new cases become old cases, and symptoms become more severe, I expect to have hospitalizations increase in the early stages with constant rate of positive results. It is nice to see we aren’t jumping by 100s yet.

Maybe this stay at home thing is helping.


On a side note a friends dad tested positive in FL. He is on the downhill side and his symptoms were mild. Fatigue and loss of appetite. No fever. I hope it goes that well for me.

My company (engineering) has closed our offices and gone 100% work remotely. Some people have to go to sites and even meetings, but most client meetings are now done virtually. We had a department go-to-meeting with video for the first time yesterday (so I put on a nicer sweatshirt and combed my hair - one colleague had a dress shirt and tie on, but not pants when we made him stand up :lol: ) we've been doing them with just audio previously. Very few project delays or cancellations and, in fact, an uptick in RFPs. Most of our projects are considered critical, water and wastewater and roadwork. I only work half time and now I do it over 7 days instead of 3.

Read today that Walmart and Target will begin to limit the amount of customers in the store. Also heard Menards is thinking about taking temperatures of customers coming in.
That makes no sense to me as you could be asymptomatic and still carry the virus. Also seems a little confrontational.

This story from Illinois is insane. The state had to drop off a $3.4M check(!) in a McDonald's parking lot to someone that "knows a guy" in China so that they could get an order of masks 20 minutes before someone else sniped it from them.

I think that shows why it was a pretty bold step that Minnesota is putting all their PPE/ventilator information online while most states are choosing to keep that information as quiet as possible.

That makes no sense to me as you could be asymptomatic and still carry the virus. Also seems a little confrontational.
Or you could be showing a mild fever and not knowing you're potentially spreading it. You couldn't go anywhere in China without taking a temperature, although there they were whisking you away for 2 weeks if you had one.

So weird question after reading various “mask” stories. How or why does a N95 mask expire? I’ve read several stories about lack of permanent stockpile because they expire. How does a mask expire? Is it the fabric deteriorating? Or The elastic? Because that would take decades!

Looks like it's concern about the elastic bands, nose-piece etc... the N95 masks are meant to seal very closely against your skin, so if those parts of the mask deteriorate, that can stop the mask from being fully effective. The Institue that sets the guidelines seems to require some sort of expiration date as part of meeting the certifications. It's one of those "these components degrade, we have to put an expiration date on them or if someone uses an old one and it doesn't work right, we'll get sued" as near as I can tell. The filter material itself is inert, so even if it's "expired" it's still likely way better than a regular surgical mask, and infinitely better than some of the improvised solutions out there. (Standard caveats, not a doctor/lawyer/infectious disease or protective equipment specialist, etc)

I wear masks when working in a grain bin. The elastic straps break after repeated use. And you can only store new ones so long, maybe 2 years, before the elastic straps kind of rot.

Ether the storage area is really poor or they are ancient. I have perfectly good elastic that’s at least 10 yrs old. But I get the idea of “having” to have an expiration date. I just thought it was strange.
But I have good elastic, I’m sure the basic masks are very low buck. Cheapo elastic would give out.

They've been checking temps here for weeks and no one thinks twice. No it won't "catch" someone that's asymptomatic but that's no reason to not do it. And I'm surprised they weren't already limiting foot traffic.

Delta continues to impress me.

Just got an e-mail letting me know they have already decided to extend any status through 2021 regardless of if you requality, that any miles accrued in 2020 will just roll over into 2021 toward 2022 status, and flexibility with a number of other travel benefits.

I get we have about 2% choice in airlines here, but I'm glad it's Delta - they've tried to do right as much as they can considering their revenue fall off (again, bailouts aside). And I haven't seen United or American come out with anything close yet.

I actually look forward to when I can get on a plane again. Hoping my July 4th Vegas and August Sonoma trips can happen.

Also, any ecredits you have with them for cancelled flights/etc have been extended out to 2022. While it would be good to have some more competition here and lower some of the flight prices and such, overall, I've been very happy with Delta.

My understanding is that it doesn't affect animals as severely, making it fairly indistinguishable from other seasonal allergies/upper respiratory issues they regularly get. There are likely a lot of other animals (at least lions/tigers) that are/were infected in the New York Zoo system, but the symptoms were so similar to what they normally deal with it didn't raise any red flags. They don't seem to have much of a concern about contracting Covid-19 from the animals, but are worried about asymptomatic carriers and transferring it to the animals.

This would probably not be that hard of a query/report to run that they have run in the past... No "homework". It's just data.

It's possible their analysts are useless though, and they are simply running line items such that some restaurants say "Pepperoni", some "Pepp", some "Large Pepperoni", and so on, which results in only a simple side like garlic naan showing up consistently across restaurants.

There aren’t enough places in MN that serve garlic naan for this to be possible. I also don’t believe the top food delivery in Oklahoma is spicy tuna roll. Nor do I believe Iowegans are THAT in to large Poke bowls.

Kentucky doesn’t seem like a Pad Thai hotbed.

I love nachos as much as the next guy, probably more, but it isn’t exactly the best option for delivery, unless North Carolinans really like mushy chips.

My guess is they didn’t do a lot of homework on this.
This would probably not be that hard of a query/report to run that they have run in the past... No "homework". It's just data.

It's possible their analysts are useless though, and they are simply running line items such that some restaurants say "Pepperoni", some "Pepp", some "Large Pepperoni", and so on, which results in only a simple side like garlic naan showing up consistently across restaurants.
There aren’t enough places in MN that serve garlic naan for this to be possible. I also don’t believe the top food delivery in Oklahoma is spicy tuna roll. Nor do I believe Iowegans are THAT in to large Poke bowls.

Kentucky doesn’t seem like a Pad Thai hotbed.

I love nachos as much as the next guy, probably more, but it isn’t exactly the best option for delivery, unless North Carolinans really like mushy chips.
We love nachos 😂

Yeah, you wonder how it happened. Did an employee cough and sneeze on a tiger? Seems unlikely.

It could be too the folks that are using Uber Eats are more millenials and what not and those are their food choices as opposed to the most popular takeout
