Hi, Jon. #CASEAct is pro family in that it allows independent creators & small "mom-n-pop" businesses a means of possibly protecting their families' incomes against #copyright infringement. It is #Covid_19 related because... 1/2
... these same families livelihoods have been decimated w/ #StayAtHome orders cancelling events, photo shoots, etc. Pro photographers generally have two income streams: assignments & the licensing of #copyrighted material. (Same as musicians w/ royalties) so... 2/3
...#justOne Senator, @RonWyden, is hitting these families with a double slap in the face by: 1/ Denying them equal access to justice & 2/ Ensuring a primary income stream disappears or is at least minimized. The #CASEAct is common sense legislation that passed the House... 3/4

See firsthand the trauma and unfairness of voting via #VoteByMail in Oregon:
PS: And here, next door to the City Hall/Police Station where I dropped our ballots, is the local cannabis dispensary, for which an elderly city council member recently thanked God: "It's the only business generating enough taxes during COVID to keep our town solvent!" #Oregon

We have filed a motion seeking a temporary restraining order on behalf of clients in their class action lawsuit over handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in #Oregon prisons. It would force ODOC & the governor to take action now as we move forward with our litigation and trial #orpol
The order would require the governor and the Department of Corrections to take every action within their power to reduce the risk the disease poses to incarcerated Oregonians. We believe that our plaintiffs will suffer immediate irreparable injury unless the TRO is issued.
To inform the court about what is happening inside Oregon's prisons during the pandemic, we have submitted dozens of declarations or witness statements from incarcerated people alongside our motion for a temporary restraining order.

Live tracker: How many coronavirus cases have been reported?
Using data from the COVID Tracking Project, we’re following how each state is responding to Covid-19.

Scroll down to the photo of the States in this article & then click on the State.…
Iowa 3,159 positives on Monday. And now today Wednesday, 3748 positives, Iowa has a population of 3.18 million.
Georgia on Monday had 18,947 positives, today they have 20,740. Georgia has a population of 10.6 million.

But they have opened up their stay at home orders. Salons, restaurants, tattoo parlors now open. Expect these numbers to go way up. #Georgia #Georgians #COVID19

Oregon needs to close #PDX airport (to prevent those in pandemic-affected cities from bringing #COVID19 here) and then reopen the state as follows. 1/
1) Designate which hospitals will continue to treat covid patients
2) Reopen all other healthcare facilities and practices to non-covid patients, as soon as there are enough surgical masks to provide one to each patient.
3) Reopen all state parks, trails, etc to the public, with a caveat that citizens should continue to practice social distancing, step 6 ft off trails to let others pass, and wear a mask when running within 25 ft of others or when hiking with friends not in your household.

@CDCgov, it’s me again. This “report” you released is a flawed mess. If you’re attempting to address #RacialHealthDisparities then why are 12 of 14 states you cherry-picked ranked between 15-46th in terms of Black Population percentage. #TheLies…
Instead of analyzing outcomes from #DC, #Mississippi or #Louisiana, all with >30% Black population, you chose to pad the numbers and present #Utah, #Oregon, and #Iowa... all <3% Black population. We. See. You.
Remember the #HealthCareSystem May discriminate but #COVID19 does not Image

Nothing like a lawsuit to get the phones ringing! We are so appreciative of all of you who've been in touch since we filed a lawsuit on behalf of 7 clients over #COVID19 response in #Oregon prisons. Here's a thread of what you can do to help.
First, if you're thinking "Lawsuit, what lawsuit?" here's an article to get you up to speed.…
If you know someone in an #Oregon prison who wants to share what's happening, mail them our legal intake questionnaire to fill out and return to us as "legal mail." Next best option is for you to complete our online survey on their behalf. Find both here:

"At least six of Spain's 17 regions were at their limit of intensive care unit beds, and three more were close to it, authorities said. Crews of workers were frantically building more field hospitals."…
"Smaller U.S. cities are about to witness the rapid acceleration in coronavirus cases that New York is seeing."

"Nearly 15% (almost 13K) of all those infected in Spain are health care workers, hurting hospitals' efforts to help the tsunami of people gasping for breath."

If you live in OREGON this pertains to you, please read this thread and pass on the information.

"Governor Kate Brown today issued Executive Order 20-12

All non-essential social and recreational gatherings of individuals are prohibited immediately, "

"regardless of size, if a distance of at least six feet between individuals cannot be maintained. Gatherings of members of the same residential household are permitted."

"Closes and prohibits shopping at specific categories of retail businesses, for which close personal contact is difficult to avoid, such as arcades, barber shops, hair salons, gyms and fitness studios, skating rinks, theaters, and yoga studios."

This thread connects #China to US, Bill Gates and Michael Bloomberg and is incredibly essential to understand something greater that is going on. Most do not know that Vir Biotechnology is founded by @BillGates and @MikeBloomberg dollars through "Gates Family Fund". #coronavirus
FIrst of all, you should know that I started this research when I was looking into the funding behind #HB3063 in #Oregon. I connected the dots between Vir Biotech in Portland, to @ESHforOregon and @OHSUDoernbecher.
I then put the connection between OHSU, @Merck
, @GSKUS @pfizer and @OHAOregon. I learned that the @CDC was making r public health dpmts sign IGA's binding them to these agreemnts or else lose public health funding and their jobs. OHA gives more money for "cooperative funds"

Just met with @repblumenauer and #Oregon business leaders. A summary:

-Consumables hoarding is creating artificial shortages and disrupting orderly supply chains
-Most “small” businesses losing $1-10k/day
-Immediate, direct funding (not just loans) needed to save small entities
-Significant drop in investing and deal activity
-PDX stands to lose dozens of performing arts venues
-Xenophobic attacks on biz owners
-We can’t afford to NOT directly fund local recovery; as evidenced by prior recovery acts, it will prove more costly to rebuild than keep afloat
-The most marginalized and vulnerable must be first in line for assistance
-Washington is not trusted or expedient, thus we need to rely on community leaders to convey information
-Biz leaders have the appetite and ability to bridge comms gap between government and the public

⚠️The similar genomes of 2 #coronavirus infections in #Washington suggest #COVID19 may have been spreading in the state for ~6 weeks.

150—1,500 people “have either been infected and recovered or currently are infected now.”

Expect many more cases, soon.…
Unfortunately, community spread of #coronavirus has been occurring in MULTIPLE regions for weeks. In #Oregon, the infected school worker(!) had symptoms for a week before being tested — add the long incubation period, and this person likely was infected 2-3 weeks ago.

As I discussed, we cannot stop #coronavirus, but we can contain it.

But unfortunately, I expect many more #COVID19 cases for the next 4-6 weeks (at least).

If you don't live in #Oregon, you should pressure your state food bank network to create a program like Oregon's Free Food Market, something they have in addition to traditional food banks. This is where folks can get fresh produce…
It is available to everyone. The only questions asked when you go is what your zip code is, how many live in your household, and if this is your first visit. Nothing about your income or immigration status. This makes it welcoming & reduces stigma because anyone can go.
It happens once/month at each site, but there are 33 sites in Portland that have their Food Market each month. Food Banks are heavy on carbs, the Food Market/Harvest Share is about produce. Lots of produce.

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.
