I’m with Klurejr... this is 100% a case where the “in thing to do” is to blame the company for their default settings which were put in place to make the service easier to use. Until about 2 months ago, this is exactly what MOST people wanted when using the service... simplicity and ease of use. Those that were Read more

They are really digging deep into 80's nostalgia for this one. This game drove me nuts and the cartoon they made out of it for Saturday mornings was awful. I wonder if we will see a Kidd Video movie next... Read more

While there is no treatment for the virus itself, there are many treatments for the patients to manage their symptoms and the impact on the overall impact on the body. Depending on how it was presenting, being hooked to a ventilator or even just given oxygen (something urgent care facilities and EMS vehicles do have) m Read more

I can see the conspiracy theory side of this but, on the other hand, Oscar is probably pretty well positioned to help in this crisis. As is Kaiser Permanente and other large healthcare providers. The fact that Jared Kushner has a direct line to his brother to push him toward helping in the crisis isn’t exactly a bad Read more

I really love scientists that are given an award and immediately point out that there are so many others deserving of the award and that the community is built on each others work. They both seem like brilliant, humble, and decent men based on their reactions.

I think it is fair to say that if that process worked and was perfected, every bounty hunter would want to use it since it completely eliminates any chance of escape or really any problems at all during transport.

Oscar is a solid company but are you saying they are mis-attributing this stuff to Jared when it is actually Joshua that is running this thing for the administration? He would certainly be a better choice. At least he has experience in healthcare.

The tech and a few key employees will be picked up for pennies by Google in the end. As an investor they have claim in a liquidation and they are probably privvy to negotiations with other companies. It is pretty doubtful that anyone sane would drop a billion dollars on this company (let alone 6) when they have no Read more

Coronavirus is a generic term that encompasses many species of the virus including SARS, MERS, and others. Covid19 is more accurate as it refers to the exact name of the disease caused by the species of the virus called “severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2" or “SARS-COV-2" for short.

That would be quite problematic for e-commerce stores, the mail order business, and any other business that doesn’t rely on an in-person interaction in order to conduct business.

I will never understand why they don’t simply provide a major tax incentive to gas stations that have a charging station that meets the standards and requirements they choose. It would be pretty easy to leverage the existing infrastructure we have EVERYWHERE and simply add a charging station. Make them profitable and Read more

You are making a number of potentially unfair assumptions. It is entirely possible that they weren’t grantd access to the production database initially due to “security concerns” and were not given the access required to do the testing they wanted to do. We need to remember that there are a lot of people involved here Read more

A bigger issue is our definition of what it means to have anonymized data. There are valuable and socially beneficial uses for anonymous medical data and, frankly, I am hopeful that we will start using more of this sort of information for the public good. That said... it needs to be truly anonymized. Things like IP Read more

The sad reality is that from a cost standpoint they are measuring it the wrong way. Each early death is likely saving money due to the cost of healthcare in the last year(s) of a persons life. Read more
