Covid 19 Alert Better Safe Then Sorry 

 

Thinking of going out to eat during this pandemic? According to a recent study from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults over the age of 18 who tested positive for the coronavirus are “twice as likely” to have dined at a restaurant two weeks before reporting symptoms, CNN reports. 

The study used data from 314 adults throughout 10 states who experienced COVID-19 symptoms in July. Of those adults, 154 tested positive, and 160 came back negative. 

Patients were asked about their mask-wearing habits, as well as their daily activities, like going to the gym or grocery shopping. Though there were few differences between the positive and negative sets, one thing stuck out: those who tested positive were more likely to have dined at a restaurant 14 days prior to reporting symptoms. 

“In addition to dining at a restaurant, case-patients were more likely to report going to a bar/coffee shop, but only when the analysis was restricted to participants without close contact with persons with known COVID-19 before illness onset,” the study reads. 

The data also revealed that of the adults who tested positive, 42% said they had been in “close contact” with someone who had coronavirus. Just 14% of those with negative cases had reported being in close contact with a positive case, 51% of which were family members. 

Most of the adults used in the study — 71% of those with COVID-19 and 74% of those without — said they “always” wear a face mask in public. 

Researchers wrote that exposure in restaurants have been linked to air circulation. 

“Direction, ventilation, and intensity of airflow might affect virus transmission, even if social distancing measures and mask use are implemented according to current guidance,” the researchers wrote. 

When Michigan reopened indoor dining in June, Harper’s Restaurant and Brew Pub in East Lansing was linked to 138 coronavirus cases over the course of a weekend. (The restaurant blamed long lines and overcrowding beyond their control. Soon after, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer banned indoor service at bars, citing the fact that alcohol tends to get people to speak loudly, gather closely, and lower their inhibitions.) 

In August, six front of house employees of Birmingham sushi restaurant Adachi tested positive for COVID-19. Also last month, the State of Michigan began publicly publishing its outbreak data, which includes various services like bars and restaurants. The data is organized by region and shows if outbreaks were linked to staff or customers or both. 

The CDC labels dining out at restaurants with indoor and outdoor seating where capacity has not been reduced and tables are not spaced six feet apart as being the highest risk to contract or expose others to the coronavirus, as eating and drinking with a mask on is, well, impossible. Dining in or on patios, even where some precautionary measures are being enforced, still pose a threat for those dining and service industry employees. 

The lowest risk is, of course, ordering takeout, using drive-thru services, or curbside pick-up.

Check My Baby Mama 

Ok here is the deal I have two Baby Mothers right.I been with them threw thick and thin from Court Case's to School.I have been very respectful to the both of them,but I have come to the conclusion that they do not respect me at all.Respect is needed where it is given and with that being said I have an urge to put out a diss track with all the details and give you better insight on whats going on.Quick Question do you think I would be wrong if so please tell me.I feel that certain things can't go unaddressed.I feel like Aretha R.i.p. the Queen of Soul all I want is Respect is that to much to ask for from a Child Mother?I wish it didn't have to be like this but when it's only one side of a story the truth always get twisted so I feel the folks need to hear the other side as well.I mean it's some deep stuff that would make you think how.Im talking about a sane person couldn't manage to deal with this type of stuff it's enough to make anyone go crazy.Remember this one thing with ebery Action comes a consequence.

You Have The Right To Remain Silent 

I'm confused as to why do Ganster make statements.I really never could wrap my head or understand this.I know when Law Enforcement reads you your Miranda rights it clearly states anything you say or do will be used against you in the Court of Law!I have witnessed many Thugs,Gansters, Killer's write statements detailing there crime in specific details.Every time the made the statement it has been used against them in the Court of law.The Defendant then ask for the evidence to be suppress to no avail.To make matter's worse most of the Defendants say's someone snitched ratted told on them when in fact they made a statement telling on there self.So my advise to you Ganster,Thugs Murders or whatever you wanna call yourself don't do the crime of you can't do the time.To everyne in the Game just know Prison is a possibility.

Music Biz 101 

Hey just wanted to talk about the current state of music.The Music industry has changed so drastically in a short time period.Its not about who has the best c.d. anymore it's all about that single.With Streaming Music  at an all time high people are consuming music much differently now.Music is so easily available to stream by alot of difference Artist it's hard to focus on one.With that being said I suggest putting out a new single every three months or longer and promote that to keep the fans intrique then you can release an album if you choose to. That's just my thoughts on the new music Biz.

Keep The School Safe 

In wake off all the school shootings we're in need of prayer more then anything now.

I don't think stiffer gun laws will change much of what's going on.

As it's mainly students  of the school who is doing all the shootings.

Therefore I'm sure there not allowed to own a gun yet.

I mean sure metal detector's and added security will aide in making the schools safer but not fool proof.

I'm very much against armed Teacher's that's a no no for me.

To much power to the teacher which can be used in the wrong way.

 

 

On the other hand we do need some type of system in place.

I suggest having and armed law enforcement officer in every school.

Also have an monthly drill just like an fire drill for students and teachers.

I would like to see more counselor's in the schools as well.

I will suggest camera at every entrance of the school's

I think this would be a good start to cut down on the school violence.

 

 

As alot of you may not know I was a victim of an school violence shooting.

In which we had metal detector's and camera's as well.

The culprit snuck in an unlocked door that was propped open with a loaded gun.

Which he had all day in school until it was time for football practice as we was walking from class.

In the hallway the culprit pulled out his weapon during school hour's and fired a shot in the hallway hitting me in the abdomen.

As I was pronounced dead on the scene before being brought back to life.

I'm saying this to say there is no way to fully protect the school's but there is ways to make them safer.

 

 

Nerve Wrecking 

 The one thing that is so annoying to me is chain letters.

I mean I have been getting the letter's for the last five year's or more.

It's alway's pass this message share this.

If you love me share this and send me one back.

Mainly the chain letter's are sent threw messenger.

I just wish you would quit with the chain letter's I mean for real what is the purpose?

What are some of the things that annoy's you I would like to know?

Can you share with me let me in your world?

Post below in the comment section I'm interested to hear from you!

 

The Creative Process 

Making Music that matters I have been writing songs for a long time now. I find the process comes very easy to me.I start out with an Idea then it quickly turns to a vision.Ideas just pop into my head and soon as they come I write them down rather it be a phone pen and pad or voice recording anything so I don't forget.Thats where all the creative process begins for me.Everytime I write it's like im writimg a script for a movie or tv show but it's all real life and authentic. My music is basically about personal experience of mine and other friends and conrads growing up in Detroit.Mi poorest an proverty stricken neighborhood you will experience alot of things good and bad.Im thankful for being able to have been apart an to make me the person that I am today.
