Huge restaurant and hotel chains can get coronavirus stimulus loans intended for small businesses

The big source of coronavirus-related government help for businesses with 500 or fewer employees is a $350 billion loan program. But somehow big restaurant and hotel chains got themselves included in the program, leaving small businesses worried they’ll be edged out. Franchise owners will also be eligible for the small business loan program, no matter how big the company they’re franchisees of—and no matter how many franchises they own. For instance, the owner of 68 Massage Envy franchises, who employs 2,000 people, can apply for loans just like the owner of two breakfast spots in Chicago. “This stuff is meant for me, the little person,” says the breakfast restaurant owner. “We’re a collection of small businesses,” says the guy who owns 68 of the same massage business.

Trump's daily stream of coronavirus lies are all about to hit a wall

I take no joy whatsoever in writing this particularly grim post, but Donald Trump's relentless string of lies about the coronavirus going away, being just like the flu, being a media hoax, and being a problem that governors and governors alone should handle are all about to hit a wall as the death toll mounts across the country.  Americans of all stripes will have the opportunity to see with their own eyes the deadly results of a president who was too incoherent, too incompetent, and too inhumane to worry about leading an unprepared nation into an ambush blindfolded. And no region will be spared, not even those that rabidly support Trump.

Horrific Twitter thread by New York City health committee chair raises concerns on COVID-19 deaths

As the death toll resulting from the novel coronavirus continues to rise, some New York cemeteries are facing difficulties despite the ability to operate 24 hours a day. New York City has begun to store bodies in freezer trucks to accommodate the number of victims the pandemic has claimed. In a series of viral tweets Monday, Mark Levine, the chair of the New York City Council Committee on Health, claimed that officials are considering temporarily burying people who die from COVID-19 in local parks due to the number of increasing dead bodies and lack of space in freezers at Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME) facilities in the state. “A typical hospital morgue might hold 15 bodies. Those are now all full. So OCME has sent out 80 refrigerated trailers to hospitals around the city. Each trailer can hold 100 bodies. These are now mostly full too. Some hospitals have had to add a 2nd or even a 3rd trailer,” he wrote. The thread spoke about the difficulty grieving families are having in burying loved ones as funerals and cemeteries are unable to accommodate the increasing number of deaths following the coronavirus pandemic. “NYC’s healthcare system is being pushed to the limit. And sadly, now so is the city’s system for managing our dead. And it, too, needs more resources. This has big implications for grieving families,” Levine wrote. While he emphasized that the burials would be temporary and “tough for NYers to take,” he noted the goal was “to avoid scenes like those in Italy,” in which military officials have had to collect bodies from the street and churches. “Soon we'll start ‘temporary interment,’” Levine wrote. “This likely will be done by using a NYC park for burials (yes you read that right). Trenches will be dug for 10 caskets in a line.”

Hopefully, the birds flocking to Bob Verschueren’s wooden housing complex won’t mind if their neighbors stay up late chirping or make too much noise as they head out in the morning to look for worms. Resembling a dense apartment building with shared walls and common perches, Vershueren’s “Implantations” features rows of stacked homes that vary in size for multiple birds to live in simultaneously. They’re a stark contrast to traditional single-family birdhouses. More

A Massive Wave of Luminous Figures Scales a Dark Wall in Ataraxia by Eugenio Cuttica

One-hundred five fiberglass figures stand atop white chairs in rows that extend from the floor to the ten-meter high ceiling. Part of an exhibition titled Ataraxia, the LED-lit installation invokes the ideas behind the Greek phrase, which roughly translates to imperturbability, equanimity, and tranquility. The glowing project by Argentinian artist Eugenio Cuttica was on view in 2018 at the MAR Museum in Buenos Aires and explored the ways subjects can achieve balance and happiness through freedom from desire.
