Re: Wu Flu

Interesting tidbit in the thread: a fabric mask that would otherwise be ineffective, if you soak it in salt solution and then let it dry, it becomes very effective. Something about the salt penetrating the viral contaminate as it passes, and recrystallizing, destroying it. https://www.nature.com/art...

Nicholas Christakis has some great threads on twitter on several aspects of COVID19 that are worth reading. This one on immunity is particularly good:

DC is close to that. The business district is nearly deserted, restaurants are takeout only, and schools are closed/online classes only.

Two track. Three-ish chapters of the OT and slower through the NT. I like the two track for variety's sake, especially reading it before bed.

Re: Exercises for knee pain?

What kind of knee pain?

I had twinges in my knees when I would bend to do Ippons or Ogoshis in judo class. The twinges were at the top, around the insertion of the quad(s). Simple leg extensions helped.
