WHAT WE LEARNED TODAY
“The number of test positives is increasing. That is a dramatically important signature that everybody is doing their job.”
“The supply has greatly expanded.”
“Yes, there are drugs in the pipeline.”
“We’ll see what happens.”
"...if even 10 or 15 percent of the population decides that what they’re doing today is more important than the health and welfare of the rest of the Americans, they can spread the virus in a very strong way because you know the level of contagion." Dr. Deborah Birx
“We’re announcing new guidelines for every American to follow over the next 15 days as we combat the virus… Work to engage in schooling from home when possible. Avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 people. Avoid discretionary travel. And avoid eating and drinking at bars, restaurants, & public food courts.”
“… the most important thing was if one person in the household became infected, the whole household self-quarantined for 14 days. Because that stops 100% of the transmission outside of the household.”
“We’re really entering a new phase of testing.”
“So it’s happened; the first injection was today.”
“… to be able to address this virus comprehensively that we cannot see, for which we don’t have a vaccine or a therapeutic. The only thing we have right now is the amazing ingenuity & compassion of the American people.”
Vice President Mike Pence referred to the new guidelines as "what our experts say is the best opportunity we have to lower the infection rate over the entire course of the coronavirus."
the next “online dating”?
“They were starting to feel the pressure of the biological clock, still single, and looking for a partner they can have a child with, whether they were married or not.”
“It’s a controversial approach to creating a family and there are people who balk at it, but the idealized version of a man and woman falling in love is shortsighted.”
LOVE American Style? Online mating may be new, but online dating is definitely not. 30% of adults have tried it and 12% have been in a committed relationship with someone they met online. WHAT DO YOU THINK? Are co-parenting websites the logical next step?
What you might not know about the best known Jewish holiday in America.

The kinks aren’t out of the system yet. We’ve just transferred more than 2,000 posts to this new website. In the coming days, we promise our info will be current, clean and clutter-free (aka: “smarter”)
Every 8 seconds in America, a baby is born. Here’s the first baby of the SmartHER Era!
The latest news from Venezuela: long gas lines, dying crops, and failing infrastructure.
It wasn’t always this way.
3 generations of native Venezuelans tell us what every American should know about one of the worst humanitarian crisises in the world.
“It’s really hard to think of a human tragedy of this scale outside civil war. This will be a touchstone of disastrous policies for decades to come.”
“It was a free Venezuela. It was paradise.”
“Last time I went to Venezuela in 2015, I wanted to cry, because grocery stores were near empty. Shelves were lined of vinegar and almost nothing else. For basic foods like rice, eggs and milk, people had to stand in long lines…”
“It’s complete misery. Even for those who have the means to buy food and basic necessities like soap and toilet paper, it’s a nightmare, because there’s a shortage of these items. That’s why people are fleeing to nearby countries like Colombia.”
“We are such a wealthy country, and yet there is no food, some days there is no currency in circulation. It’s quite ironic.”
Negotiations between current Venezuelan leadership (NicolA!s Maduro's gov't) & the opposition (led by Juan GuaidA3) are currently underway, looking for a political path forward. Read more on how Venezuela got to this current state.
