Tesla shows how its building ventilators with car parts

Tesla is among a group of automakers retooling facilities to build ventilators for the Covid-19 crisis.

But the Guardian talked to Mat Bowtell, a former Toyota engineer in Australia who's using fourteen 3D printers to manufacture thousands of face shields for healthcare workers.

Governors across the nation tore into President Trump’s assertion that the federal government is a “backup” for states’ procurement of needed medical supplies amid surging COVID-19 cases, during Sunday morning interviews. During a White House coronavirus task force briefing on Thursday, Trump argued that states “have to stock up” on key medical supplies that they’re running short of and that the federal stockpile is a “backup” for them.

U.S. ‘wasted’ months before preparing for coronavirus pandemic

By MICHAEL BIESECKER WASHINGTON (AP) — As the first alarms sounded in early January that an outbreak of a novel coronavirus in China might ignite a global pandemic, the Trump administration squandered nearly two months that could have been used to bolster the federal stockpile of critically needed medical supplies and equipment. A review of federal purchasing contracts by The Associated Press shows federal agencies largely waited until mid-March to begin placing bulk orders of N95 respirator mas...

The toxic side effects of coronavirus lockdowns

Panic is dangerous. More people can be killed by the stampede than by whatever triggered it. Unfortunately, public officials in California have an incentive to fan the flames of panic. How else can a handful of elected officials with no specialized knowledge of anything except fundraising persuade millions of people to obey their directives to stay in their homes, watching from a distance as they lose their jobs and savings? It goes against human nature to sit quietly while being destroyed. Ther...

Zoom Seemed Too Good To Be True

And, turns out, it was. This is why New York just banned it as a tool for teachers: “Zoom contains a number of critical privacy and security flaws, as educators have been learning the hard way.
