With stories like what happened in Brooklyn New York you can see how bad it likely is in other countries around the world

especially in places like South America and Africa where conditions often are very different than in the United States. I was reading a few weeks ago now about hundreds of bodies in Guayaquil, Ecuador that had either died in their homes or were put on the streets because they had no refrigeration for them in the hospital and didn't want to smell up the hospital there. So, they put bodies in the street there in front of the hospital covered in Plastic weighted down so animals and birds couldn't eat the bodies and spread the infection to other mammals or humans

So, it isn't surprising to hear of funeral homes being overwhelmed in this way in places like New York City somewhere or in the future other places that have opened up too soon within 3 to 4 weeks of now.

Here in California too many people weren't watching the social distancing rules and Governor Newsom felt forced by people not doing this to shut all the public beaches and state parks in California once again. Which though it will make millions very sad who might not have air conditioning in southern California, it might reduce the load on doctors and nurses in emergency rooms and ICUs all over California too because after all we have 40 million people that live in this state and about 25 to 30 million of them live between Santa Barbara and San Diego and the Border at Tijuana, Mexico.

New York (CNN)Four trucks containing as many as 60 bodies have been discovered outside a Brooklyn funeral home after someone reported fluids dripping from the trucks, a law enforcement official told CNN.
The Andrew Cleckley Funeral Home was overwhelmed and ran out of room for bodies, which were awaiting cremation, and used the trucks for storage, a second law enforcement source said Wednesday.
At least one of the trucks was unrefrigerated, according to one law enforcement official. One source said the bodies were put on ice.
The Department of Environmental Protection issued two summonses to the owner of the funeral home for a foul odor.
    CNN reached out to the Andrew Cleckley Funeral Home, and someone who identified himself as the owner would not comment.
    "They were like almost everyone doing their best to cope," one source said.
    The city has been the epicenter of the US coronavirus outbreak for weeks, with 17,589 confirmed and probable Covid-19 deaths, according to the city website.
    Authorities are waiting for tarps and equipment to move the bodies into a larger truck, two sources said.
      New York has freezer trucks that funeral homes can use if they are overwhelmed, and the city sent one to hold the bodies, CNN affiliate WABC reported.
      "Funeral directors are required to store decedents awaiting burial or other final disposition in appropriate conditions and to follow their routine infection prevention and control precautions," the New York State Health Department said in a statement regarding the incident.

      An Easy way to find the level on your property

      Let's say you haven't built a road to your property yet and you have to hike there and want to build a cabin that is level. One easy way to do this is to take a garden hose long enough to reach any two points you want to find the level for. Then buy some clear tubing from Ace Hardware or someplace like Home Depot or something like that and buy about 6 to 8 feet of clear tubing about the same diameter as your hose. Then you get some grey tape (duct tape) and tape the tubing that you cut in half on either end of your hose. At this point you have 3 to 4 feet of clear tubing on either end of your hose. Then (you are going to need a water source near or on your land to do this). You fill your hose with water.

      If you have stakes you can drive a stake into the ground wherever you want to show level in your rectangular or round or square or whatever shape you pick house or building you want to build. Then with water in the hose enough to come up into the clear in two places (this is much easier with at least 2 people by the way. However, if you taped or tied one end you might do this alone too.

      So, since water ALWAYS will find the level anywhere on earth if you see water in one clear end it is going to be level always at the other clear end as long as the water is still and not being moved around by anyone like a child or something.

      YOU take and mark where level is on one stake and then walk over and mark where level is on any other stake you have driven into the ground and as long as no one messes with those stakes you have a level for your land where you want to build from then on.

      Always trust the level of the water because it will find level between any two points on your land even if it appears to be an optical illusion on some pieces of property around the world.

      I haven't watched any of these so I don't know if they are any good but here are some online videos regarding all this:

      The History of Car Window Tint and Tinted Windows

      You might think car window tinting is a relatively new feature in the world of automotive customization, but the slick shaded glass you see on cars today is the result of literally centuries of development. So the next time you slip into your cool car on a hot summer day, thank the UV-blocking film on your windows, but also the innovators through history who made it happen.

      CAR WINDOW TINTING IN 3000 B.C. – 1300 A.D

      The earliest known tinted glass originated in ancient Egyptian and Mesopotamian cultures, which developed processes for tinting and coloring glass for beads and decorative pots. Around 100 A.D., Romans began using clear glass for windows, and by the medieval period in Europe and the Middle East, the process for coloring glass by adding metallic oxide powders was widely used to make stained glass windows for palaces, churches, and mosques.

      CAR WINDOW TINTING IN 1940 – 1960

      The invention of automobiles in the early 20th century changed the face of transportation, but cars didn’t proliferate across the consumer landscape until the post-war period. And as more people included cars in their daily life, more people began to notice how temperature and glare from the sun were magnified through glass. It was only a matter of time before EZ Eye, one of the first tinting manufacturers in the US, introduced factory window tint in a few car models, including the popular ’58 Chevy Impala.

      CAR WINDOW TINTING IN 1960 – 1966

      Because window tinting was only available from auto manufacturers, a small industry of DIY window tinting started to crop up. Spray-on tinting was the most popular alternative window tint, but the result was a dark and often uneven shading that was difficult to install and prone to streaking. Some rudimentary dye-based window films were also introduced around this time, but not only did they have a tendency to turn purple and bubble in the sun, but they would also absorb heat into the car instead of reflecting it away.

      CAR WINDOW TINTING IN 1966 – 1969

      Adhesives and laminates manufacturer 3M—best known for Scotch Tape—finally unlocked the key to sun control film in 1966 with technology that added metallic coatings to clear polyester for a flexible film that blocked much of the sun’s harmful UV rays and heat. Three years later, in response to terrorist bombings in Europe, 3M introduced clear security window films that held broken glass in place—a standard feature of window film today.


      The energy crisis of the 1970s prompted further innovation in heat reflection, and low emissivity films started to become popular in commercial building windows, as well as for automotive use. But it wasn’t until the late 1970s that tinted car windows became the top choice for privacy—limousines all over the U.S. started utilizing dark tints, some with shading of 80% or more.


      Darker tints were great for privacy, but not so great for visibility. By the early 1980s, most U.S. states developed their own laws regulating the tint level allowed on car windows to reduce accidents. In the early 1990s, a second generation of window film was introduced: a “hybrid” film using metal, which reflected the sun’s rays, and dyes, which absorbed heat. Together, the film components reduced heat by about 50%.


      Although hybrid window films revolutionized UV-blocking capabilities, the development of other technologies posed a problem for metallic tints: they often interfered with electronic devices like radios and, later, GPS systems. To solve this problem, the window tinting industry developed the latest in window films, which use ceramics instead of metals. Ceramic-based window tint lasts longer, rejects heat and UV rays better, and doesn’t interfere with electronics at all.


      So what’s next for the development of window film? Innovators are already approaching 100% UV and heat blocking technology, and while modern tint holds broken glass together, perhaps future film will prevent the glass from breaking in the first place.
