Florida braces for presidential primary amid a health pandemic

Since the novel coronavirus outbreak was declared a pandemic on Wednesday, state election officials have made a number of changes, from relocating polling sites to encouraging more early voting, to protect the health of the state’s 4 million people who are over the age of 65 and represent one-fifth of the total population of the state.

“Our recommendation would be if there’s a polling location in assisted living facility, allow the residents to vote there,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said at a press conference on Wednesday. “But maybe the general public should have the option or be directed to go to a different polling location.”

Some of the changes being implemented by election officials across the state include relocating polling sites away from assisted living senior communities.

Hillsborough County, on the west coast of the state, immediately announced changes to polling locations that were set to be at large assisted senior living communities.

The county also has prepped extra staff in the event poll workers drop out on election day because they fear exposure to the virus.

“We’ve trained an extra group of people that are ready to work on election day if needed. Our staffing levels are good, and our locations are good. This is a very fluid situation, I can’t see if there will be more changes or not, but things right now are very manageable,” Gerri Kramer, Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections spokeswoman, told CNN.

At least two senior poll workers in the county have already dropped out of working on March 17 because of “compromised health situations,” Kramer noted.

Election officials in Pinellas County, another area of Florida located on the Gulf of Mexico, has implemented similar measures, as elderly poll workers begin to drop out due to fears of being exposed to the virus, according to The Tampa Bay Times.

State election officials have also stressed early voting and vote-by-mail options for those who want to be extra safe. Florida Secretary of State Laurel Lee on Tuesday tweeted a reminder to voters that they can drop off their vote-by-mail ballots up until 7 p.m. on election day or choose to vote early up until one day before the primary.

Early voting in some counties started as early as March 2. Florida’s Democratic voters have a history of coming out ahead of election day. In 2016, more than 2 million Democratic voters had already cast their ballot out of the states estimated 12 million voters three days ahead of the presidential primary

Additionally, election officials this week were supplied with hygiene guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which included washing of hands, using hand sanitizer and wiping down voting machines.

The Florida State Department provided county election officials with information and guidance on recommended precautions, which included wiping down voting equipment and practicing frequent hand hygiene.

Still, such health precautions have caused unintended consequences elsewhere. In one county in New Hampshire, the use of too much hand sanitizer clogged ballot machines during

Demon Dentist by David Walliams

Twelve-year-old Alfie hates going to the dentist. His teeth are yellow and brown and he loves sweets. He had an awful experience at the one-and-only dentist in town, Mr. Erstwhile, and has refused to go since then. Erstwhile croaks and a new dentist, Miss Root, shows up at Alfie’s school to promote good dental hygiene. Or so it appears. But something is off… she’s an odd tooth, saying that she will not give gory details on Erstwhile’s death, but then gives the gory details: Erstwhile was found in his surgery room lying in a pool of blood with a dental probe through his heart.

Irony abounds as Miss Root sniffs out Alfie’s rotten mouth-full of teeth in the school auditorium like a bloodhound. He gets pegged for an appointment at her office that he is determined to miss. Alfie describes the creepy dentist as, “The pupils in her eyes shone black. On second look, they were blacker than coal. Blacker than oil. Blacker than night. Blacker than the blackest black. In short, they were black.” Like a stand-up comedian, the author has great timing that includes some hits and misses. This book needs a “snort-laugh ALERT.” If you like silly books with exaggerated characters, then you’ll like this comedy.

Alfie teams up with Gabz when he sees Miss Root acting suspicious. She is younger than him and he calls her his “girl friend” which all they adults interpret as his girlfriend. The two sputter in anger every time this happens and I laughed every time as it got more preposterous. Take Raj, the endearing dork of a newsagent, who says to Alfie: “‘Your girlfriend?! Ooh…’ cooed Raj. ‘No, no!’ exclaimed Alfie. ‘She isn’t my girlfriend. Gabz is just a friend who’s a girl.’ ‘Your friendgirl*?'” The author puts an asterisk with a footnote: “*Made-up word ALERT (any letters of complaint to be addressed to Raj.) Move over spoiler alerts.

David Walliams pokes fun at evolving social cultures such as the boy who misses out on all the action at school because he texts 24/7. Or the drama teacher that thinks the social worker, Winnie, driving a moped throughout the school is part of an improv act. Or Winnie, the social worker, that eats and drinks like a piston with no sensitivity or respect to others. Then there is some toilet bowl humor with farting (that is in the top five next to “poop” and “butt” for kids at my school) along with some terrific scary parts, the need for false teeth, and “witchestry*”. A snortingly* fun at the beach book. Okay. I would not make team Walliams made-up word list.

When kids at school start receiving gross items like bat wings, an old man’s toenail, and an eyeball under their pillows from the tooth fairy, Alfie is sure it is connected with Miss Root. He teams up with Alfie, Raj, and Gabz to solve the mystery. The straightforward plot is easy to follow and Miss Root is a one dimensional

Kuo expects ‘AirPods Pro Lite’ to be Beats, AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro 2 as soon as next year [U]

Update: Kuo has issued an update to his report, saying that AirPods 3 will go into mass production during the first half of 2021, not the first half of 2020. We’ve updated our piece below as well.

Reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has published a new investor note today focused on Apple’s growing AirPods business. According to the analyst, Apple’s over-ear headphones will enter mass production sometime this summer. There are also new AirPods and AirPods Pro on the way.

Apple’s over-ear headphones are expected to be available later this year with a unique magnetic design. Kuo says that the high-end headphones will enter mass production in mid-2020, which suggests a release in late summer or early fall.

This follows a report from Bloomberg last week, which said that Apple’s over-ear headphones will feature swappable magnetic parts. Apple is said to have developed at least two variations of the headphones, one using leather fabrics and another with lighter materials more suited to fitness use cases.

Meanwhile, Kuo also expects third-generation AirPods to enter mass production during the first half of 2021. These AirPods are expected to switch to a production process that’s similar to the existing AirPods Pro, but other details are unknown at this point. It is expected that the external design will stay roughly the same, though.

Apple released AirPods 2 just over a year ago, bringing the new H1 chip, wireless charging case, and hands-free Siri. AirPods Pro were then released in October with a new in-ear design and noise cancellation.

Kuo adds that second-generation AirPods Pro will enter mass production late in 2021 or early 2022. Again, details here are unknown, but it is notable that we’re more than a year away from new AirPods Pro at this point.

Kuo also casts doubt on expectations for a “new AirPods model” coming in the second half of 2020. Sources such as Digitimes have said that “AirPods Pro Lite” earbuds are coming this year, but Kuo says these are “more likely to be” a new Beats model than AirPods.

What do you think of this report? Do you have any hopes for third-generation AirPods? Let us know down in the comments.
