    Just how I personally felt after seeing him talk at other events - no ties to any campaigns.

    Combination of both, you'll see read receipts, etc. for signal participants, but everyone else gets plain sms/mms

    Any comment on 2:08-2:16 of this video? What of all the women who've come forward and said his actions made them uncomfortable?

    Can I suggest that Biden putting his forehead against somebody else's, holding a woman's hands, or calling someone "pretty" doesn't really hold up to the Reade allegations?

    I personally felt like Biden actually attacked just as much if not more than Bernie in the last 'debate'. But I also felt like Biden was so much more composed than usual that it was suspicious.

    FWIW I'm not a Bernie or die fanatic. I just hate the fact that I'm going to have to vote for someone who I think is a morally questionable person for the second time in a row. The more I get into politics, the more I find out that the skeletons in most of their closets are disgusting.

    I think you phrased it fine. My point is simply that we shouldn't be giving anyone a free pass because we have a lot of issues we need to systematically fix before we go on and make the problem even worse and more difficult to undo.

    But that's just my extremely jaded take on humanity.

    Given that a variety of republican institutions have already been found to be repeatedly doing this, this is almost a certainty.

    Trump would abuse this power to further hurt communities of color and activists.

    That's what happens when you let for-profit businesses run your country. They do everything they can to consolidate power.

    That's part of creating the whole view that government-run things are bad, and government is bad, while private completely profit-focused business is good. It's disheartening to see how pervasive or even "natural" view that is among many.

    Would you say the majority of problems on earth were/are caused by issues that are mostly social in nature or of a different source?

    As I said, there are obvious issues with mining on the moon, but they are mostly social in nature.

    If you're not an expert on this, maybe don't go on the internet and argue that it's 'probably okay'. This is not the kind of thing we should be encouraging in any way shape or form. What necessary...

    There is no environment on the moon to take care of - the only environmental concerns (I can think of) are a) literally mining the moon away which I have trouble taking seriously as a concern and b) inhibiting potential scientific usage of the moon (kicking up dust that obscures moon-based telescopes, for example. It's unclear whether this could even be a problem).

    If you're not an expert on this, maybe don't go on the internet and argue that it's 'probably okay'.

    This is not the kind of thing we should be encouraging in any way shape or form. What necessary good does mining the moon do for humanity? If we can't learn to live with the resources we have access to, or at the very least learn the slightest bit from our blunders on earth than we certainly don't deserve to be destroying the rest of the universe. Let us destroy only ourselves with our own stupidity, greed, and unchecked egos, please.

    You can bake it in the oven to get an effect similar to an autoclave, however, this might degrade the filter material, depending on what it's made out of. Otherwise exactly how long it survives depends on the surface and new information that we keep getting from testing (general rule of thumb is currently 72 hours). If you let it sit around for about a week, any surviving virus would likely be dead by then. If you're just letting it sit around, try and be sure to expose it to sunlight as that will often degrade viral material faster.

    This page has some information on re-use techniques currently being employed. More information can be found on a Stanford page devoted to COVID-19 related evidence.

    More stores need to implement limits on items. No family needs 200 rolls of toilet paper. No family needs 20 bottles of sanitizer. If you're a business and need to buy in bulk, go do so from the source please.
