July 28, 2020 Ridley's Believe It Or Not World Hepatitis Day

Ridley’s Believe It Or Not July 28, 2020   
       CV World: The CV pandemic across the planet continues with 153,456 new cases  (a .93%  increase compared to a 1.27% increase yesterday) to bring the total nearing 17  million to 16,690,318 cases, 5,757,418   of  which  are active, 10,932,900 of which have been closed with 10,275,380 recoveries (93.99% compared to  yesterday’s 93.93%) and 657,520  deaths (6.01% compared to yesterday’s 6.06%) to continue the trend of increased recovery percentages and decreased mortality percentages.
      CV USA: New cases of 37,642 with total cases surging to over 4 million of 4,398,184 (a .86% increase compared to yesterday’s 1.22% increase) with 2,147,312 active cases of which 19,100 (18,997 yesterday) are in serious or critical condition a small increase, and 2,288,514 closures, 150,528 of which have been deaths (6.58% compared to yesterday’s 6.66%) and 2,137,986 of which  have been recoveries (93.42%  compared to yesterday’s 93.34%) (our death rate percentages continue to improve and are finally in single digits since Cuomo repealed his order sending CV positive patients on May 10 but remain higher than the world probably due to idiots like Cuomo sending positive CV patients into nursing homes to infect the residents and staff who then die and accounted for some 40% of our deaths with 55,805,416 tests (with almost a million more tests from yesterday so much for Biden’s claim of lack of testing by Trump and implications Trump is slowing testing to hide CV increases).
     Non CV News: On another front the Chinese reveal they may disregard international law as a massive fishing fleet is approaching the economic zone surrounding the Galapagos Islands; only in America can a disgraced and fired FBI agent Peter Strzok be able to ink a book deal that hopefully none of us will want to read but he has and his book on Trump and Russia will come out just before the election; Nadler was uninjured in a hearing delaying for an hour car crash that did not dampen his attempt to lynch Barr as a lawless AG unconstitutionally dispatching federal agents to cities like Portland that didn’t want them (what Nadler and his fellow hacks can’t accept is that there are damaging riots not peaceful protests exercising 1st Amendment rights in cities like Portland which has endure 61 continuous days of riots); the cancer of riots in Portland continues to metastasize with police battling “protesters” in Tempe and Austin where a BLM carrying an AK-47 like rifle pointed it at a motorist driving to drive through the area and was shot dead by the driver (sane blacks to no avail are saying burning down buildings or attacking police is not going to help black people but the rioters are not listening); on the policing front a South Bend white police officer helps a 12 year old black set up his lemonade stand and matched his sales but in Ridgewood, New Jersey, video of two officers pulling a 15 year old black off his bike and bringing him to the ground (prompting internal affairs review); the DNC is getting a reality check for police as more than 100 police agencies have pulled out of agreements to provide security for the DNC due to restrictions imposed by the leftists on crowd control (fortunately for Sanders supporters who want not to be eating bowls of S—t they are probably not violent);”Fair and Balanced” wins over Bias and Advocacy every time as Fox News Channel for the 49th straight month garners a the Number 1 Cable ranking while the Cack News Network could only place its most ranked show in 13th place (when does CNN tire of Chris Cuomo and his brother Andrew and let Chris go?); the wheels of justice move slowly but with the public help they move as Samantha R. Hamer, 26, and Kerida E. O'Reilly, 33, after being identified as the 2 who brutally attacked State Senator Tim Carpenter filming a violent protest in Madison in June, turned themselves in to face battery charges; Joy Reid demonstrated her stupidity by claiming Antifa did only what its name means anti-fascist like N. Korea is democratic as it has “Democratic” in its name.
     Chicago/Baltimore Gun Violence: In Chicago as of July 27, 2020, the number of shootings increased by 15 to 2,266, of whom 398 have died (so much for the defund the police movement and  for the effectiveness of Chicago’s stay at home order and a complete dereliction of duty by Mayor Lightfoot other than swearing at people outraged over the killings); Baltimore with a fraction of Chicago’s population and hoping against all hopes that 2020 will not be a record in terms of deaths but now seems to be shooting less and killing less and is now 208 behind Chicago now at 190 murders (when will Chicago and Baltimore get serious about this carnage or is this the case of true racism as a Blue run city turns a deaf ear and a blind eye to the slaughter of people of color by people of color and when will the left focus on the problem of color on color shootings in Blue run cities which have been more deadly and more numerous than shootings by police or random mass shootings?).
 As always, I hope you enjoy today’s holidays and observances, factoids of interest for this day in history,  a musical link to Toni Braxton, the fact that if you are not a peccable person,  and a quote from Willie Perkins on Wakins Glen Summer Jam, secure in the knowledge that if you want to find a gift for any memorable events like Father’s Day, college graduations, birthdays, weddings, or anniversaries, you know that the Alaskanpoet can provide you with a unique customized poem at a great price tailored to the event and the recipient. You need only contact me for details.
1. World Hepatitis Day—created by the World Health Association in 2010 to create awareness of the alphabet of Hepatitis A-B-C-D-E and what a person should do to avoid being infected by this potentially deadly disease. 
2. World Nature Conservation Day—creating awareness of the need to preserve and use wisely the planet’s natural resources but not who or when created this observance.
3. 1996 Number One Song— the number 1 song in 1996 on this day on a run of 1 week was “You Are Makin Me High” by Toni Braxton in her first number 1 song.  Here is recording of the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIgOL21S98o.  This very talented singer has sold some 67 million records and has overcome a false breast cancer diagnosis but a true diagnosis of Lupus.
4. Word of the Day—today’s word of the day is “peccable” which means liable to sin which sadly describes all too well the members of the House and Senate which trait may get worse the greater number of terms a person is serving.
5. Run Till You Die--celebrating the birth on this day in 1958 of Terry Fox who after a leg was amputated in 1977 due to cancer became an avid activist for cancer research and in 1980 declared he would raise money for cancer research with his Marathon of Hope by running across Canada. He started on April 12, 1980 running more that a marathon each day and became a national hero as the money poured in but sadly his dream ended in Thunder Bay, Ontario when it was discovered the cancer had spread to his lungs. His race stopped for good on June 28, 1981 but his memory and fund raising lived on with more than $750 million raised from cancer research in his name.
 On this day in:               
 a. 1917 the Silent Parade of some 10,000 African-Americans organized by the NAACP started at 5th Avenue in New York City to march in protest to the murders, lynchings and other violence perpetrated against African- Americans. 
 b. 1932 President Hoover ordered that the “Bonus Army” that had been camped out in Washington , D.C. demanding immediate payment of their bonus checks for servicein WWI be paid now be disbursed which Army troops under the command of Douglas MacArthur did.
 c. 1973 an estimated 600,000 music fans entered the Watkins Glen International Speedway  in Watkins Glen, New York to listen to a rock concert.
 d. 1984 the Summer Games of the XXIII Olympiad opened in Los
Angeles which in a tit for tat move, the Soviet Union boycotted in retaliation for the boycott by the U.S. of the Moscow Olympics 4 years earlier.
 e. 2018 Wendy Tuck became the first female skipper to win the Clipper Round the World Race finishing ahead of Nikki Henderson also a female who finished second. 
     Reflections on the Watkins Glen Summer Jam Festival: “When we first got there we were able to drive in and out of the site, but the road became like Armageddon overnight. It was like there had been a nuclear attack and people had just abandoned their cars.” Willie Perkins, tour manager of the Allman Brothers, one of the bands playing there.
