100% -- Remember H1N1, more commonly known as Swine Flu? This was the most recent pandemic (besides HIV/AIDS, which is still considered a pandemic). It began in early 2009 and lasted through late 2010. Between April 2009 and April 2010, there were approximately 60.8 million cases, 274,304 hospitalizations, and 12,469 deaths in the United States alone! Globally, it likely infected between 700 million and 1.4 billion people, resulting in 150,000 to 575,000 fatalities. While this loss of life was tragic, more than a decade later, many scarcely remember Swine Flu. The same will hopefully happen with COVID-19.

Хорошая новость

During live video captured by a Boca Chica resident near SpaceX's operations, the version of Starship known as SN1 could be seen during a pressurization test around 10 p.m. Friday. But before it could be completed, the prototype failed to contain the liquid nitrogen, sending the cylinder flying off its stand and crashing to leave behind a mangled pile of stainless steel.

Прекрасный запуск, хоть бы и остальные были такие же.

У нас гастролирует лондонский Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique, и, среди прочего, они устроили workshop в нашей музыкальной школе, репетировали и играли первую часть Седьмой симфонии Бетховена. Было две репетиции, в том числе сегодняшняя открытая.
