PARENTS – READ BEFORE ENTERING

REDMOND'S REVIEWS are provided frequently at Universal Digest.

PARENTS WITH PERSONAL GUIDANCE

Parents are noticing child warning signs at restaurants. I want to start out by conveying to you that I agree with these two points: First, hearing and seeing a child running willy-nilly around a restaurant can be a bit of a distraction. Second, a screaming kid running up and down an aisle during a flight can hinder one’s attempt at a nap.

OK, now that we have that out of the way, I ask you is your “annoyance” at these situations involving children. Is it any different than when you hear an adult screaming for a waiter or waitress numerous times. Or, when the person next to you on a flight is taking off their shoes and socks and then proceeds to give themselves a foot massage?

PUBLIC BUSINESS SIGNAGE

I bring up the above points for a reason. Recently, I have noticed more and more signs in local restaurants both on the east coast and west coast, warning parents that their children are “on notice” and better behave or else. Where are we going as a culture, when people would find this some how acceptable.

Now, I am a pure Free Market person, so I would be against any governmental regulation not allowing such signs. But, my question really is this, why would people want to associate with a place that appears to look at our children as the enemy?

This opinion may not be popular, but I feel it needs to be put forth. Why are we putting our children on notice? What ever happened to a quiet respectful, one on one with a parent who may be allowing their child to run a muck, that would ask the parent to please rectify the situation? What is next? Signs warning that those who may eat loudly not to come in, or even worse? You get the picture. The slippery slope is indeed starting to get wet. Why would any one find it okay to warn paying customers “that thus and so” will not be tolerated or else?

PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND SIGNAGE

I worked in the restaurant and night club industry for well over ten years, and NEVER in those ten years saw such a sign in place where I worked. If children on a case by case basis got out of hand, than on a case by case basis we spoke to the parents with dignity and tact.

These are some examples of child warning signs at public businesses.

On the east coast this past Summer, I saw signs such as the one I referenced and just shook my head, Out on the West Coast I have seen similar signs as well. Where are we going as a culture where when a family walks into a place of business, they immediately are put ‘under watch’. Would you, who are reading this posting, feel comfortable if the word ‘child’ was replaced with some other word that describes a certain type of person? My guess is you would not, but somehow we think it is okay to “stop and warn” families before they walk into a business.

PARENTS AND CHILDREN ON GOOD AND BAD BEHAVIOR

For the record I have seen 6 year old children behave quite well in places that people 5 times that age have not. If we keep this up, unless a family doesn’t mind a spotlight on them as they walk into a place, what choices will the family have? With no real choices, I guess a family can now be forced to eat at a fast food place. So, now the same people that seem to judge their children’s POTENTIAL behavior, can now judge the parents for going to the only public choice the family may have to feed their children.

Again, I stress, I am a free market believer; the less regulation the better, so let’s do the math shall we? A family of four walks into a restaurant in the Hampton’s. Lets say, they may stay 35 minutes, spend about $80 to a $100 to leave and now that table is available for someone else to use. The other option is this, the one or two people that may complain at being burdened by the threat of loud children, most likely spent less, and stayed longer in the place of business. Thus, net per hour, that place of business made less money, not more.

PUBLIC BUSINESSES THAT GET IT RIGHT

I have seen examples of businesses that have welcomed families and the money they spend. Sandals Resorts seem to have figured out this perfect formula. Yes I agree it may be a bit pricey, but their all inclusive family resorts are a great example of what I mean. A few years ago, we took our family to Turks and Caicos through Sandals, and my children were received as welcomed guests, not a potential noise threat. They wanted my business, earned it, thus received it.

Many other local businesses on both coasts and in our heartland get it right, as well. Children are guests, who have parents who pay money. The child that acts out, is an exception not a rule and the businesses act as such. For myself, as do many parents, I hunt out family friendly or family neutral places, and quite frankly when I can, will pay even more for the knowledge they do not prejudge my kids. I ask you this, how would you like to be pre-judged?

NOVEL-nCOV ASTOUNDING UPDATE

It is novel to see the viral infection underway. This comes via the CDC (Center for Disease Control).

Novel-nCOV was one of the original names of the original SARS-CoV-2 designations. Well, matters have evolved much more from the beginning of this outbreak. But, that is not all. COVID-19 has been mutating, which is no surprise to medical experts. That is, medical experts who are willing to state the truth. This article addresses some of the latest revelations learned.

NOVEL-nCOV OR NOW COVID-19 REVELATIONS

Novel-nCOV or not, there is a clambering from many sources who are questioning whether or not COVID-19 is a manufactured virus. Since, there is no direct evidence that it is, conjecture continues.

Also, even if the novel coronavirus was bio-engineered; its origin cannot be determined as an accidental or one of purposeful intent. In fact, mainstream news, science, and medical articles claim it was not lab-created. And, there is no evidence available other than what is claimed as conspiracy theories.

Recently, friends and colleagues have come forward with varying forms of information, as well as, personal experiences. We will cover this information, shortly. But, before that happens, we need to review recent events and references to a previous article.

Also, here are more links to this one and the first article posting on the Coronavirus, too.

IS IT REAL OR MEMOREX? THIS IS A NOVEL NOTION, YES?

The image below depicts the existence of 3 proteins contained in the coronavirus. Now, bear in mind there are billions of viruses and many live quietly inside the human body. The E-protein is involved in receptor binding for viral entry. And, it is found in Dengue viruses. The S-protein is an inhibitor of blood clotting. The M-protein is an immunoglobulin. So, when these proteins enter the boy in abnormal quantities, other maladies can occur. And, the abnormal levels can affect lungs, brain, and blood. But, including the coronavirus, matters are worse for the lungs.

This past few weeks has been a momentous challenge for billions of humans living on earth. But, many questions come to mind. How did this start? Why did this start? When did this really start. From where did the virus originate. And, what happened to it when it did? This writer will attempt to address these questions to best of ability.

HOW, WHERE, AND WHEN DID COVID-19 START?

This author is trying to keep from being too technical, but, it is difficult. At this time, it seems the latest coronavirus outbreaks started from bats in the Wuhan region. Now, researcher believe the virus was transmitted to an intermediary animal. Then, the virus was ingested when preparing and/or consuming the animal. Apparently, it started at the Huanan seafood market in late 2019. Then, the clusters of people purchasing from the market spread the virus, abruptly.

Remember, too, this was not long before the Chinese New Year began. Human travel to and from this area of China was massive. Since China’s economy had been bustling and growing, so did the extensive travel of its citizens, worldwide. To date, it is still unknown how many traveled to global locations, but, there were no restrictions from the Chinese government after the release of the virus into the human population.

In fact, there are speculations rampant from medical experts that the virus was wide-spread before anyone knew better. Reports are coming in from those who now believe they caught the virus and have recovered from it. Further, it is now believed that many people have the virus and don’t even know it.

WHY DID THIS VIRUS START?

That, as they say, is the big question. In keeping this separate, we can now visit some of the surrounding conspiracy theories. A common expression is: Everyone loves a good conspiracy theory. And, especially on the Internet there are NO shortages of them.

In not sounding trite or trivial with this connotation; this writer has read everything from Bill Gates to Bozo the Clown! Hiya kids! From individuals running for US Senate to world business leaders, it is no wonder that so many heads are spinning.

This writer is not saying there are no planned conspiracies; in fact, there are. The deep state is a known fact. And, there are ‘subterranean‘ plans underway, all the time. And, such plans have occurred throughout history. The sad news is we keep forgetting it once these plans are exposed.

NOVEL-nCOV MECHANISMS

Recently, one of the best and trusted of friends sent me a rather startling statement from someone who sells medical devices nationwide in the United States. Here is a synopsis of what he discovered. The doctors and those from medical firms say this is one bad-ass virus. It attacks the lungs, voraciously.

The viral mechanism is particularly targeting the ACE-2 receptors of the lungs. This is where the virus enters the cellular membrane. It causes severe congestion where the patient cannot breathe for the most part. This is particularly dangerous to people with pre-existing conditions. Further,  an ACE-2 receptor in the lungs is the entryway for the SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) in atypical pneumonia cases.

Here is the rub regarding Novel-nCOV. It attacks the ACE-2 receptors like its predecessor. The report I received said that 80% of people have ACE-1 receptors and COVID-19 does not attack them. If they did, we’d all be dead. So, it is known that 20% of the human population is vulnerable. 20% possibility of fatalities is unacceptable.

WHAT IS BEING DONE TO QUELL THE OUTBREAK?

Containment. It is all about containment. Most people don’t remember the outbreak of the Spanish Flu in 1918, just after WW I. It was estimated that over 500 million people (1/3 of world population in 1919) were infected with the H1N1 (Avian-related) virus. Of those infected, approximately 50 million people died. In the US, the fatalities numbered over 675,000.

Signs like these novel ones are popping up around the world.

So, perhaps more people can see the stark reality of social-distancing, staying home (shelter in place), and wearing masks. Look at many of the Asian countries citizens who wear these rather frequently? This is real, my friends. With global cases approaching 2,000,000 with a death rate approaching 120,000, severe measures are underway to beat the hospital case load issue. Well over 405,000 people have recovered, so far.

In the US, the number of cases have now become the most of any country. There are well over 530,000 cases with over 21,000 deaths and counting. Spain and then Italy follow.

SEVERE STEPS ARE BEING TAKEN TO STEM THE TIDE

The United States leads the way in measures being taken to slow and then stop the Novel-nCOV virus. This is uncharted territory in the 21st century. Much is being learned from what has happened in other parts of the world. Where the virus started, China is pretty much back in business. It is ranked sixth in the countries affected, now.

As if President Donald Trump in the US has had the worst problems from political wranglings from before he was even elected; this is potentially even more foreboding of a task to undertake. This is not a time for politics. It is a time for teamwork. Pure and simple.

President Trump took on the challenge very early. The US economy has almost suddenly drawn to a grinding halt. Everyone has been affected. Why? Again, the number of cases must be reduced in order to start working. When it is known that the ‘case curve’ is on its way back down, hard decisions must be made as to lifting the ‘shelter-in-place’ phenomena.

WHEN WILL A NORMAL HEALTH, WELLNESS, AND ECONOMY ENSUE?

Some say this virus will be with us from now on. Until a vaccine is developed, no one really knows. The estimate for the vaccine creation and implementation may be around 12-15 months. Knowing medical ingenuity as it is today, especially in the United States; it may take less time. But, until all counter-measures are in place, especially with medications and ‘compassion drugs’ being used (Chloro-quine, Z-PAC, and Zinc Sulfate; examples), getting back to work is problematic.

This is where the president and medical experts come in handy. Like it or not, this is a path that must be taken. Hopefully, very soon, we will see a public return to the streets with a flurry of activity and economic development underway.

One thing for sure is, the cure cannot out-way the disease. Tough decisions must be made as to when to lift the restrictions from public contact and travel. And, they must be made soon. No economy, anywhere, can soon last past a certain time. Bear in mind, too, that extra debt is being borne to give aid and stimulus to those without work, companies, and non-profits who are surely suffering, mightily.

ANOTHER CONSIDERATION

It is about the human condition. Governments in the past, as well as, present have perpetrated restrictions on its populations. Without getting into such ‘Draconian’ and ‘Machiavellian’ measures, we must learn from history. This author believes President Trump is on the mark about what to do.

Civil disobedience is a crucial consideration of which to be aware. Although, it seems rather remarkable how every leader of every government (more-or-less) have moved in locked step, recently to take such similar measures to contain COVID-19 from spreading; remember, we do live in a global, interdependent world. Such ‘social-distancing’ has not been observed in history. So, give it a chance.

Those who break the rules with hoarding and indiscriminate social gatherings are not helping in the least. Again, when the H1N1 Spanish Flu outbreak occurred, most cases hit the 20-40 age group, as well as, the 65+ age group. Do not take this likely. We will get past this problem with the least number of deaths, possible. Again, it is a team effort. This is not a time for rebellious behavior. One has plenty of time for that, after the fact. Get healthy, first.

SUMMATION

This has been the most difficult of articles to write, to date. How may one be objective, honest, and transparent; devoid of agenda. There is so much more to add, but, it is not prudent in this writer’s humble opinion.

Sticking to the facts; adding what is pertinent; covering the bases, and adding some color and humor, where appropriate is the agenda.

Sticking with your able government leaders (where they exist) and abiding by measures taken that do positively affect everyone’s welfare is at a critical stage. If anyone has a better idea; step forward now.

Note: With at least one country leader issuing ‘shoot-to-kill’ orders of its citizens; oh my! And, am receiving notices of extraditions of country friends and family trying to get home. Airlines are paralyzed, pretty much. Pray.

After so much research, time, and consideration, it is time to pull together to help rid the negative and deadly affects of the novel-nCOV scourge that affects us all.

Please remember, hang tight; hang tough. We’ll get through this. God Bless all of you and pray for those affected.
