Saw this on The Daily Show

Shows all the data for COVID19 in one place.

Looks like it sources from https://cov19.cc

• N95 (United States NIOSH-42CFR84)
• FFP2 (Europe EN 149-2001)
• KN95 (China GB2626-2006)

An N-95 respirator is one of nine types of disposable particulate respirators.
Particulate respirators are also known as “air-purifying respirators” because they protect by filtering particles out of the air as you breathe. These respirators protect only against particles—not gases or vapors. Since airborne biological agents such as bacteria or viruses are particles, they can be filtered by particulate respirators.

Respirators that filter out at least 95% of airborne particles during “worse case” testing using a “most-penetrating” sized particle are given a 95 rating. Those that filter out at least 99% receive a “99” rating. And those that filter at least 99.97% (essentially 100%) receive a “100” rating.

Respirators in this family are rated as N, R, or P for protection against oils. This rating is important in industry because some industrial oils can degrade the filter performance so it doesn’t filter properly.* Respirators are rated “N,” if they are Not resistant to oil, “R” if somewhat Resistant to oil, and “P” if strongly resistant (oil Proof). Thus, there are nine types of disposable particulate respirators:

N-95, N-99, and N-100;
R-95, R-99, and R-100;
P-95, P-99, and P-100

In short, N95 masks are the US standards for respirator masks; KN95 masks are the Chinese standards for masks. These are the requirements that the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health requires manufacturers to meet in order to label their masks as N95s. Despite the long list of differences, the two masks are equivalent or nearly equivalent on the features that most people care about.

United States / Tipping
« Last post by jdaniele on July 03, 2020, 02:07:16 PM »
So this is a VERY passionate topic of mine that I feel most people don't truly understand why or when is the right time or way to tip. Some people say you should tip only in some situation based on performance and some say you should all the time and every time. I started a website (howtotip.org) to start a survey study but I don't think I'm getting enough or the right data. So I figured the best way for me to collect information would yet again be this forum since we can quickly post articles on it and report data.

My biggest issue is not having a system to go by. If there's one thing I can't stand is trying to do the right thing then having someone get mad at me for still doing something wrong. This all stemmed from when I got hair cut in my teens. I was just starting to drive and I never really have had to tip anyone besides a waiter before. So After my haircut I paid then went to leave. The cashier made a nasty comment about a tip and I immediately felt bad and started to reach for my wallet. I felt like shamed and started to do the math in my head but before I could grab anything the lady at the register made a second comment REALLY loud and I thought pushed it too far so I left without tipping at that point. In this particular situation I don't feel bad after being yelled at but rule one with tipping is voluntary based on performance and treating me like that just lost any tip I was going to give. Needless to say I ALWAYS tip and feel great about it. I always usually tip above the average because to me it just makes sense.

So what is the right thing to do? I'm going to post my survey and update this thread with links that I find. This should be tipping based on the area and the type of service. I don't want to see opinions outside of the survey and just use articles we find.

There IS actually a regulated system "on the books" for this but before I go into that I want to collect the information I'd mentioned. I also just want this to be based on within the United States since I know in other places in the world it can be drastically different.

Sex workers already adhere to strict health safety regulations in the Netherlands, but the industry has compiled a list of recommendations, including sexual positions to avoid.

Even with new guidelines, sex workers will be more exposed to the dangers of CODVID-19 than other professions, said Debbie Mensink, a public health advisor in Amsterdam.

“There is a heightened risk. Sex workers already have a heightened health risk due to their line of work... because people get so close to each other.”

Mona, however, said she is not worried and will take precautions.

i figured out alot of what the code means by just comparing several files with just one difference. i was thinking of modifying weapons and what not but i think my character with stats of 1.6 million each is enough.  my room mate was watching a youtube video of a guy playing the in the arena wave 1056 hitting for ~100k  with full gear. my character hits for 4million with his bare fists. i made it to wave 105 before the ps2 froze. i was hoping to be able to beat the arena but it looks like the game will just freeze and thats how the area ends. i had a character with 4k stats and i died at wave 75

How would I go about setting up this game?
its a ps2 game. to beable to mod the saved games files you need a memory card with freemcboot installed on it and a copy of the game. uelf launcher is the software that is needed to be use to be able in order to copy files from the flash drive to the memory card which is on the freemcboot memory card.  the game can be burned but some software needs to be ran on the disc image and loaded with ESR? which should be on the freemcboot memory card. you can run it off of a hard drive if you have the fat ps2 that has network adapter and using OPL software on the freemcboot memory card. the drives for the ps2 are pata, but you can get a pata to sata converter or buy an already modded network adapter that allows for sata. i bought a 300 gig pata drive off of ebay i think for about $20. you can also use the usb on the front of the ps2 but the usb is usb1 which is slower then the disc drive, i used it about once and said fuck this.
if you have a slim your stuck with the freemcboot and usb or esr.

i would be able to make a freemcboot memory card if you had a ps2 memory card laying around. i'm not sure if i have any that are just laying around. i do see them at the fleamarkets every once in a while. it has to be an offical sony memory card. the read write speeds of 3rd party memory cards are not fast enough and will not install on them.

i'm going to be looking at more ps2 saved game files and see if i can mod anything else. maybe i'll look at tony hawk next and see if i can change the ollie stat from 10 to 255
