It Turns Out Those Plastic Barriers Put Up To Stop COVID-19 May Actually Make It Easier To Spread
It turns out that plastic barriers that were put up at sales counters and order windows across America during the pandemic may actually be facilitating the spread of the COVID not protecting people from it. One study found that plastic screens around desks in classrooms were linked to increased transmission of COVID-19, while another study found that the barriers impeded air flow. Scientists say that under normal ventilation circumstances, exhaled virus particles are dispersed and replaced by fresh air every 15 to 30-minutes. With barriers in place that change air flow, dead zones can be created where the fresh air doesn’t travel and the virus particles concentrate leading to the spread of the coronavirus.

Half of Americans Think They’ll Never Have a Pain-Free Day Again

(Saved by Radio!) -- Man Claims $500k Powerball Prize… a Day Before it was Set to Expire!
A man from Massachusetts is a half a million dollars richer after cashing in on a winning lottery ticket which was set to expire. He had purchased the winning ticket last year and the winning numbers were revealed on Aug. 19, 2020. Powerball and other draw game prize winners have one year from the date of the drawing to claim prizes. The guy said: “I heard about a Powerball ticket expiring on the radio and then my nephew told me. I play at that store and have a plastic sleeve that I keep my tickets in. When I heard about the expiring ticket, I looked through the tickets in the sleeve and found a Powerball ticket from Aug. 19, 2020. I had it scanned at a convenience store and the clerk indicated that I had to go to the Lottery to claim the prize.” He plans to use his winning to buy a small house or year-round cottage.
New ‘Jeopardy!’ Host Now Has Old Podcast Remarks about Jews and Haiti to Explain
Mike Richards, the new permanent host of ‘Jeopardy!’ had been named in discrimination lawsuits during his time as a producer on ‘The Price Is Right’, was forced to explain past sexist remarks, and now he’s having to explain the content in some old his old podcast episodes. In the episodes he talks negatively about Jews, poor people, women, Haiti, and his admiration for white male TV hosts. Some of the eyebrow-raising remarks from 41 episodes of ‘The Randumb Show’ include:
While asking his podcast co-host if she'd ever taken nude pics of herself: "Like booby pictures? What are we looking at?"
Women who wear one-piece swimsuits: It makes them look "really frumpy and overweight."
On big noses: "Ixnay on the ose-nay. She's not an ew-Jay."
Regarding his co-host's apartment issues: "Does Beth live, like, in Haiti? Doesn't it sound like that? Like, the urine smell, the woman in the muumuu, the stray cats."
On his admiration for Survivor host Jeff Probst: "I like, you know, the average white-guy host."
On his admiration for American Idol host Ryan Seacrest: "He's actually made the world a safer place for what I like to call the 'skinny white host.'"
Additional cringe: in some of the podcasts, Richards used the r-word and a slur for little people, as well as said a homeless woman given a dollar by his co-host would simply use it for "some crack" or "meth."
He also made a prophetic statement: "See, what I am is horrible at all trivia. I don't have that kind of mind. If I had gotten on Jeopardy! Well, I never would have gotten on Jeopardy!, let's be square."
Richards said, "It is humbling to confront a terribly embarrassing moment of misjudgment, thoughtlessness, and insensitivity from nearly a decade ago.” He said the podcast was "irreverent conversations between longtime friends who had a history of joking around. Looking back now, there is no excuse, of course, for the comments I made on this podcast, and I am deeply sorry." He said that he's taken the episodes offline.

Waiter Surprised With $4,500 Tip 2 Days After Receiving Homophobic Message on Tip-Less Check
A Wisconsin waiter was surprised with a $4,500 tip, two days after a customer wrote him a homophobic message — without leaving a tip — on a check. On Sunday, a customer received a $142.95 check after having dinner at a restaurant in Madison. Even though the service was good, as the customer pointed out in a note, the patron decided not to leave a tip, writing: “Service was good but we don’t tip sinfull (sic) homosexuals." Two days later, Madison resident Eric Salzwedel went to the same restaurant, requested the waiter who lost out on a tip, and surprised him with the generous tip — which was the result of collaboration of more than 200 strangers. Salzwedel is one of the co-founders of Do Good Wisconsin, a local organization “dedicated to helping local non-profits, organizations, and teachers continue to make an impact in their community by supporting their efforts.” He posted a photo of the two checks on social media, writing “to the folks who felt it was necessary to write this hateful note and not tip… don’t worry.” He added that about 250 people had pitched in to “cover the tip for you.” The waiter, who didn’t want to be publicly named, was surprised and appreciative of the show of kindness and support.
