As medical professionals fighting coronavirus turn to RVs for isolation, one nurse risks $1,000 fine

In trying to reduce risks associated with the coronavirus pandemic, many people are practicing social distancing or self-isolating at home. For medical professionals and other hospital and clinic workers (including, for example, janitors), however, isolating away from high-risk areas is simply not realistic. Now, thanks to some community-focused creative thinking that turned into a Facebook group, some health care workers are being offered RVs to isolate in after leaving the hospital. At least one nurse, however, reports having a hard time in her own community, claiming her homeowners' association is threatening up to $1,000 in fines over her RV.

COVID-19: It was never about the numbers, but sometimes numbers are all we have

COVID-19: It was never about the numbers, but sometimes numbers are all we have

The story of the pandemic is the story of people. The soaring numbers on charts and tables aren’t numbers of cars rolling off an assembly line, or the distance between the Earth and some point in the night sky. They’re all people. Every digit is misery. Every measure, grief. As more than one Internet wit has pointed out, the time Americans have spent looking at exponential charts has risen … exponentially. That may finally be about to end. Not because the rate of growth is suddenly slowing. Because it’s not.

We're in a long-term fight to keep coronavirus from being the biggest weapon in the war on workers

The United States economy is crashing in historic fashion and that’s not even necessarily the worst thing going on—but one of the long-term dangers of coronavirus is that its damage to the economy, and the attendant fear and desperation, will be used to weaken the position of workers still further. The fate of workers has to be a major part of the policy discussion, and a focus of organizing, or we are so, so screwed even when and if COVID-19 stops being such an immediate threat to our health and lives.

Hello dearest ones! I hope you’re well. As COVID-19 finds its way to each corner of our nation and the world, there’s no denying that these are scary times.

A Massive Faux Staircase Punctuates A Glass-Sided Home Before Flowing into an Outdoor Garden

The design team at Nendo knew they’d need a way to connect the three generations—and eight cats—living inside a newly constructed home in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo, so they created an enormous staircase. Spanning from the outdoor garden to the third floor, the steel-and-concrete structure isn’t designed for climbing between floors but does serve as a multi-level garden area and space for the cats to lounge. It also conceals bathrooms and the staircase residents actually will use, while the white-paneled walls hold additional storage. More
