The virus can linger in the air, suspended in tiny particles, for up to three hours.The research explains how infectious the coronavirus is it is actually similar to SARS in that way. This study also shows why Coronavirus may more infectious in a medical facility. Many treatments like Nebulizers, suction devices and C-PAP machines can generate aerosol transmission.Based on this research, frequent deep-cleaning of all surfaces could make a difference in prevention.The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine with support from the National Institutes of Health.

Buy Prescription Drugs at Costco Without a MembershipMembership warehouse stores like Sam’s Club and Costco have good prices on prescription drugs — and you don’t have to be a member to buy them. Because access to drugs is regulated by the federal government, warehouse stores aren’t legally allowed to require membership in order for customers to use the pharmacy. So go take advantage of the low prices and don’t worry about purchasing a membership. continue reading »
Have you seen the movie Apollo 13? In case you’re unfamiliar with it, it is not the sequel to Apollos 1 through 12. It’s a nail-biter of a movie that tells the true story of the ill-fated — and almost disastrous — Apollo 13 mission to the moon. At the risk of ruining it for you, the crew of Apollo 13 never made it to the moon. Instead, they nearly died when an onboard explosion made it virtually impossible for them to return safely to Earth.For the crew of Apollo 13, as well as the support personnel on the ground, this was the epitome of a high-pressure situation.And to successfully make it through this high-pressure situation — to solve the myriad seemingly insurmountable problems — they had to improvise. They had to come up with creative ideas, under severe time constraints (oxygen in the spacecraft was rapidly running out), and with the lives of three astronauts hanging in the balance.I know…sometimes it feels like that at your credit union too, doesn’t it?At times like this, you need what the crew and support personnel of Apollo 13 needed: ideas. And when everything’s hanging in the balance, it doesn’t really matter where the ideas come from.But some leaders don’t seem to get this.Some leaders, when faced with a high-pressure situation, shut everyone else out — or, at best, listen only to a tiny, select group of people at or near their hierarchical level.And that’s a mistake.Because the truth is that a good idea can come from anyone, at any level. If the idea from Joe, the third shift custodian, is the one that saves the astronauts, isn’t that what really matters?But too often, as leaders, we let our egos get in the way. We think that only we can solve the problem and that getting credit for the solution is more important than the solution itself. And that’s the kind of thinking that will kill the astronauts in your credit union.Harry Truman once said something interesting:“It’s amazing what you can accomplish…if you don’t care who gets the credit.”In a high-pressure situation, ideas (and options) can be your best friends. So why would you want to limit them?Once, when I was producing my comedy TV show Almost Live!, a guest canceled at the last minute. Okay, no astronauts were going to die…but it was still a high-pressure situation for me. The entire cast and crew contributed ideas, including my lowest-paid writer. His suggestion was that maybe he could fill the time on the show — if we could get some liquid nitrogen.By the way, my lowest-paid writer’s name was Bill Nye.And that night, he became Bill Nye the Science Guy.You never know where the great ideas are going to come from…or from whom. No matter what’s at stake in your world — whether it’s the lives of three astronauts, or seven minutes of dead air on a comedy show — solicit as many ideas from as many people as you can…and then pick the best option. 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Bill Stainton Bill Stainton works with extraordinary leaders who want to produce breakthrough results with their teams.

ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » Give me an example of drama in your workplace, and I bet there’s a 90% chance we can trace that issue back to poor communication—or lack of communication entirely.Last week, I was meeting with a leader who shared an issue she was having with one of her team members. Summarizing her experience, this leader said, “I feel like she’s pushing back and taking everything personally.” Then, being a wise leader, she quickly followed with, “I think it’s a communication issue.” She couldn’t have been more right.This leader did the right thing and scheduled a (virtual) one-on-one to talk things out. During the conversation, she realized this particular team member had a communication style that was quite different than her own. She also found out about an underlying anxiety issue that the team member was dealing with. “After confronting her on several issues, I realized that if I had approached her differently, I would have gotten a different outcome.” Now, thanks to a new perspective and mutual understanding, honest communication is flowing, the trust battery is filling, and this leader has a happier, more productive team member.Understanding the individual personalities and communication styles on your team is important on any day, but when you’re working remotely and don’t have the same opportunities for face-to-face interaction, it’s even more critical. If your team is struggling with remote work, there’s a good chance that common communication challenges are being magnified and piling on top of issues that were already present when everyone was in the office together.
The Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) has released an interactive Story Map tool to communicate the national significance of Louisiana’s Working Coast.According to CPRA, this visually focused Story Map tells the compelling story using narratives, photos and maps, and conveys diverse and poignant details that surround Louisiana’s vanishing coast and the necessity to create a more resilient coast through the State’s Coastal Master Plan.“We are excited about this innovative tool and encourage you to share it with others, to further spread awareness of Louisiana’s coastal story and the innovative work occurring in our state,” said CPRA in the release.Within the story, a variety of statistics and photos showcase Louisiana’s Working Coast and its criticality to the state and the nation. Historical references guide the reader through the progression of land loss and efforts to protect and restore Louisiana’s coast and demonstrate the need to protect and restore the $330B -$1.3T natural capital and ecosystem assets of the Mississippi River delta.Half of the state’s population, about 2.5 million people, live and work in Coastal Louisiana to facilitate the movement of $120B of goods and services to the rest of the U.S. Home to five of the largest ports in the nation, Louisiana exports $36.2 billion internationally.Altogether, the narrative reveals the significance of Louisiana’s coast and the necessity to create resilience in and around it, to protect resources that feed and fuel the nation.
Magseis Fairfield has secured a deepwater ocean bottom node (OBN) project with an undisclosed client in the Mexican sector of the Gulf of Mexico.This is the first deepwater OBN survey in Mexico following the 2013 Energy Reform, with work scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2020.The survey will be carried out in water depths of 2,000 to 2,600 metres, and should take approximately 60 days.The award adds further to the backlog for Magseis Fairfield’s ZXPLR crew, led by the REM Saltire node handling vessel.The new award increases the crew’s backlog into the fourth quarter 2020, following the two deep water OBN projects announced in December 2019.“The work is for a repeat customer who completed a survey in the US Gulf of Mexico earlier in 2020, and we very much look forward to working for them in Mexico later his year,” said Carel Hooijkaas, Magseis Fairfield CEO.

The NBA was the first major US pro sports league to halt games, shutting down the season on the night of March 11 after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert became the first NBA player to test positive for the virus.
