    Quick google search says 4/23 is the first day of Ramadan, at sunset. Sounds like someone is reaching to fit their narrative, but I can’t quite make out what that is.

    For the purpose of this thread...if you can hold out a little bit, this may be a huge relief for small business. Basically two months of govt supported payroll, rent, and utilities. Supposedly will be approved in one day by any authorized SBA bank. Will count as a grant if you maintain your staff payroll within the formulas.

    Section 1106. Loan Forgiveness Establishes that the borrower shall be eligible for loan forgiveness equal to the amount spent by the borrower during an 8-week period after the origination date of the loan on payroll costs, interest payment on any mortgage incurred prior to February 15, 2020, payment of rent on any lease in force prior to February 15, 2020, and payment on any utility for which service began before February 15, 2020.

    Amounts forgiven may not exceed the principal amount of the loan. Eligible payroll costs do not include compensation above $100,000 in wages. Forgiveness on a covered loan is equal to the sum of the following payroll costs incurred during the covered 8 week period compared to the previous year or time period, proportionate to maintaining employees and wages:

    Payroll costs plus any payment of interest on any covered mortgage obligation (which shall not include any prepayment of or payment of principal on a covered mortgage obligation) plus any payment on any covered rent obligation + and any covered utility payment.

    The amount forgiven will be reduced proportionally by any reduction in employees retained compared to the prior year and reduced by the reduction in pay of any employee beyond 25 percent of their prior year compensation. To encourage employers to rehire any employees who have already been laid off due to the COVID-19 crisis, borrowers that re-hire workers previously laid off will not be penalized for having a reduced payroll at the beginning of the period.

    also a whole lot of wasted space in this thread today. please keep this thing to discussion on the crisis and response to it. if you have a disagreement with someone from a year ago, please take that elsewhere. I am keeping up with this thread pretty regularly and if I see people spamming this thing with useless shit then I will issue a 24 hr thread ban

    beer posts are ok

    really hope it doesn't get bad in Nashville. Thankfully they've got some really solid healthcare options in the city and surrounding counties

    got a neighbor in her late 80s who is like a grandmother to me and my parents are in their 70s so it's kind of scary having to just hope for the best

    even scarier when people with real local influence like Bob Corker are echoing that TX Lt Gov fool

    Corker contends that it's time for the country to quickly resume work and commerce.

    That's in an effort, he says, to save the economy from lasting damage imparted by measures intended to slow the spread of COVID-19, a highly contagious virus that has wreaked havoc on healthcare systems and killed nearly 20,000 worldwide.

    "Should my generation be willing to have a degree of sacrifice and risk so that younger generations can have a better life?" Corker, 67, said in an interview Tuesday evening. "I think so."

    I was impressed by Germany when I visited a couple years ago. Felt pretty much at home. Very easy transition. Guessing Scandinavian countries would be pretty ideal, too.

    So i just heard a stat that 287k people traveled on planes in the US today, (which is down 87%) and thought about those huge walled imaginary borders between all the states are super powerful against the spread of corona. The fact that Trump is holding onto any State being able to avoid this with these dumb policies is fucking criminal.

    True. POV and all that. My relatives in Wiesbaden spend $5,000/month for a 2 bedroom. Munich is very expensive. Berlin is not. Most cities in the old East are very reasonable. In rural Germany you can find good deals too.

    Yeah, I definitely noticed that Munich was pricier than Berlin, which is strange since it’d be like Chicago being more expensive than NYC. Of course, once you cross the border to Prague it’s almost impossible to spend a lot of money.
