COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

@MJB_SF @nitashatiku Agreeing with you and expanding, his expertise in immigration is less than the subtopics he spoke on.

Looks like Gramscians like @craig_montuori & @nitashatiku are eating their own - @wadhwa - over diversity. Nature's way. #immigration #lol

.@ctsinclair: those like @Wadhwa would deprive Africa of the doctors they need to fight #ebola. Will you oppose him over that? #immigration

Most interesting question @thisjw asked was whether robots will also want to get high. They surely hung out in bars in Star Wars :)

But @wadhwa (ie, Vivek): what abt work that ISN'T getting done? Roads, bridges, potholes, eldercare, childcare, massage therapy, meditation?

From @wadhwa
.@paulsolman The roads and bridges can be fixed by robots; they can also provide better eldercare and therapy than humans. We can meditate!

.@wadhwa A shorter work week makes sense, but HOW SOON will robots fix roads, bridges, potholes? Elder- & childcare? Massage? I doubt it.

@paulsolman @wadhwa We have 314 million people & more want to come here. Our only limitation is our imagination.

@Nick_Zen @wadhwa "We have 314 mm people, more want to come. Only limit: our imagination." Or fears, founded or not, of losing what we have.

.@paulsolman: there are only ~150 doctors (2004 per cap) in #Liberia. @Wadhwa wants them to come here rather than stay & fight #ebola. #tcot
