Re: [Phys-L] covid modeling, LGBTQ risks

I agree with Larry. This list is about physics teaching. I don't think CV19
has anything to do with remote teaching during this time... We all get
enough news about this from other sources. The online lab resources were

I believe the criteria for posting should be less about whether we agree

relates to the mission/mandate/charter of the list — physics teaching in
this case. It is on that basis that I believe Bill should post elsewhere on
his LGBTQ suggestions.

1. Has the rate for exposure/infection/death increased for the LGBTQ
demographic? One might wonder, because:

2a. higher smoking rates.
2b. already having a higher HIV infection rate.
2c. already tangling with syphilis, gonorrhea etc.
2d. having a larger incidence of compromised immune systems.
2d. poorer general health.
3. Might this not be an ideal time for persons already contemplating
abandoning the LGBTQ lifestyle to set it aside and plunge headlong into an
almost obsessive holistic pursuit of optimal health?

HOWEVER, the data on /deaths/ is more meaningful

"Dr. Robert Kim-Farley, an epidemiologist at UCLA, said the numbers of
hospitalizations and deaths provide a more accurate indicator of the
outbreak’s trajectory than the number of cases identified through uneven

bc wonders how long it took for people to use this after the movie.

finally viewed the ’40 version (KQED, San Francisco) last year.

Nostalgia: In. 1966 I (we) rented a flat in Newcastle under Lyme
(More correctly: Basford) across the canal (long gone) from were the
original Wedgwood works shipped their pottery. The sitting room still had
a gaslight fixture. And the Newcastle corporation yard had a huge pile of
street gaslights. I forever regret not getting one and shipping it home to
Santa Barbara.
