Il Detachment Makes Us Hardhearted & Attachment Doesn't ll

Is it True ?

Sometimes people think “If I become detached, I will become hardhearted.!! "

However, what makes us hardhearted is not detachment, but its opposite: attachment.
When we become attached to something, we experience intense emotions in relation with that object. But those very emotions can impel us towards unbecoming, immoral and hurtful actions, especially towards those whom we see as threats to our attachment.

*The question reveals his bias* – the Pandavas too were his people, being his nephews....(but he was not concerned for them )...

The Seattle Mayor’s Seattle Transportation Benefit District renewal plan is out today. Here’s the details and TCC’s thoughts (1/16)
sdotblog.seattle.gov/2020/07/07/may…
STBD will expire at the end of 2020. This measure has drastically expanded service and brought a 10 min walk to 10 min service to 70% of households in Seattle, along with other affordability & equity programs. It was approved by 62% of the vote. (2/16) seattle.gov/Documents/Depa…
I-976 passed last year which now restricts Seattle’s ability to put vehicle license fees back to voters, and reduces STBD funds by nearly 50%. Seattle voters rejected I-976 by nearly 76% of the vote. (3/16)

यावर्षीचा निकाल ०.००११% लागला आहे. ही परीक्षा ३,६०,९९० विद्यार्थ्यांनी दिली त्यापैकी फक्त ४२० जणांची अंतिम यादी मध्ये निवड झाली आहे.राहिलेले ९९.९९% यांच्या पुढे प्रश्न आहे, आता पुढे काय..?आमची पालक, विद्यार्थी या सर्वांना विनंती आहे की, यातील वास्तव जाणून घ्या.
किती वर्ष यासाठी द्यावीत, हे आपण ठरवावे.आणि प्रत्येकाने स्पर्धा परीक्षेची तयारी करायला येत असताना आपली मनाची तयारी करून यावी. जर यश नाही आले तर मी नक्की दुसऱ्या क्षेत्रात कार्य करेल...सरकारी नोकरी म्हणजे हे माझ्यासाठी अंतिम सत्य नाही. स्पर्धा खूप वाढत आहे.
प्रत्येकाने एक पर्याय आपल्या सोबत ठेवावा. खूप विद्यार्थी गेल्या ५-७ वर्षापासून मेहनत घेत आहे. पण यश नाही..असे हजारोंनी विद्यार्थी नैराश्य मध्ये अडकले आहेत. पुढे काय ..? हा प्रश्न रोज त्यांना पडत आहे. वेळीच जागरूक होऊ जावे आवश्यक आहे. हे आपल्या साठी व कुटुंबासाठी खूप चांगले आहे.

⚠️Scientists estimate that "superspreaders" may account for most #coronavirus cases: “Probably ~10% of cases lead to 80% of the spread," and the virus may need to be introduced into a country 4 times to have an even chance of establishing itself.

sciencemag.org/news/2020/05/w…
Multiple “superspreading events” have occurred in the #CoronavirusPandemic:

▶️61 cases in a #WA choir
▶️800 cases in a Singapore dorm
▶️80 cases at a music venue in #Japan
▶️Ships, nursing homes, meatpacking plants, ski resorts, churches, restaurants, hospitals, and prisons
Superspreading events are ill-understood and difficult to study, but there is a much higher risk in enclosed spaces than outside. Outside the #Wuhan region in #China, there were 318 clusters of ≥3 cases btwn 4 JAN and 11 FEB: only 1 originated outdoors.💥

WE ARE NOT IN THE SAME BOAT ...

I heard that we are in the same boat.

But it's not like that.

We are in the same storm, but not in the same boat.

Your ship can be shipwrecked and mine might not be.

Or vice versa.
For some, quarantine is optimal: moment of reflection, of re-connection. Easy, in flip flops, with a whiskey or tea.

For others, this is a desperate crisis.

For others it is facing loneliness.

For some, a peace, rest time, vacation.
Yet for others, Torture: How am I going to pay my bills?

Some were concerned about a brand of chocolate for Easter (this year there were no rich chocolates).

Others were concerned about the bread for the weekend, or if the noodles would last for a few more days.

⚠️New: US daily #COVID19 death toll continues to rise, now nearly 2,000 new deaths per day.

As I've warned, the daily death toll will keep rising until ~2 weeks AFTER we #FlattenTheCurve of new #coronavirus cases...but that *may* already be happening (thread).🙏🏼

📸@jburnmurdoch
Cautious optimism: we *may* have passed the peak of new daily US #coronavirus cases, and are now seeing *less* new #COVID19 cases each day for the past few days.🤞🏼

Sadly, the daily death toll will continue to rise for another ~2-3 weeks, as it takes time for people to succumb.😰
As warned, #NewYork’s daily #COVID19 death toll continues to rise, as new #coronavirus cases *appear* to be decreasing.

#NJ had a record-high death toll, and cases continue to surge. #WA appears to be heating up again.

Other states *may* be flattening, but are they testing⁉️

🚨Outbreak of #COVID19 in a #WA choir suggests that #coronavirus can be *transmitted via microscopic aerosols*, in addition to much larger respiratory droplets from coughs or sneezes.

Of 60 members: 2 died, 3 in hospital,45 tested positive/have symptoms.

washingtonpost.com/world/2020/03/…
Friends, all previous guidance was that this enveloped #coronavirus spread via respiratory droplets (secretions from your nose via cough, sneeze, touch).

Aerosols can come through normal talking (singing makes MORE), meaning it spreads MUCH more easily.

Prior guidance was based on #SARS, a close relative of this #coronavirus. Unfortunately, new #facts now suggest #COVID19 spreads more easily.

Masks likely will be needed to 1) decrease the release of aerosols, and 2) decrease exposure to aerosols.

⚠️#COVID19 deaths continue to surge in the U.S. as more #coronavirus testing comes online and viral spread continues to accelerate.

#Spain and #France locked down after ~200 deaths; #Italy after 800.

The US has >1,500 deaths and has NOT locked down.

WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR⁉️
New York and Catalonia (#Spain) have the fastest rise in #COVID19 deaths. #Louisiana (New Orleans) and south #Florida are emerging as new #coronavirus "hot zones," surpassing #WA.

#CA has relatively little testing but is also seeing a surge in deaths.

NATIONWIDE #LockdownNow‼️
⚠️#Coronavirus cases in the U.S. are now higher than *any* other country at the same point in its outbreak, with new cases DOUBLING nearly *every 2 days*.

Yet the U.S. still has NOT locked down.🤬

⚠️Death toll from #coronavirus surges in #NYC with deaths DOUBLING *nearly every day*, much faster than Northern #Italy (Lombardia) where hospitals are overwhelmed

#WA and #CA have less deaths, likely due to lower relative density of their populations.

#COVID19
📸@jburnmurdoch
The number of #coronavirus cases in the US continues to explode at the fastest pace at the same time point for *any* country.

Although #China likely covered up cases, the US still isn’t testing heavily.🤬

#COVID19 #CoronavirusPandemic
The total number of #coronavirus deaths in the US *appears* to be rising slower than other countries, but expect #COVID19 deaths to accelerate over the next few weeks, as more testing becomes available, and the virus continues to spread exponentially.

THREAD on #COVID19 testing: Keep getting asked why testing is so limited in America versus what S. Korea & others did. This is a good article that explains some of it. But here's my attempt to break it down more simply. propublica.org/article/how-so… 1./
To understand why testing is so limited here, there are 3 factors: 1) the availability of tests; 2) the ability to process tests; and 3) the restrictions that have been placed on testing, either from the federal or state levels. 2./
Instead of using WHO test that was already developed, CDC decided to develop our own. Delayed testing substantially, esp when CDC tests were flawed initially. #WA state worked quickly to establish instate testing & also set up lab at #UW, which helped tremendously. 3./
