Fight against the pandemic

https://www.businessinsider.com/dr-anthony-fauci-daily-routine-coronavirus-pandemic-2020-4

Few weeks ago read Dr Fauci interview where he described his daily routine during the coronavirus pandemic. He puts in like 20 hours/day all 7 days of the week. While that in itself is impressive, especially for a 79 year old person, and puts to shame many people much younger what impressed me most was him being able to squeeze in 4 hours of sleep each day! I dug deeper to find out how he makes that happen. He used to run 7 miles/day earlier. Now he has cut it down to 3.5 miles/day. Aha, the guy is slacking off! πŸ˜‚
Jokes apart, his background makes for interesting reading. Raised in a religious family, service to others was instilled in him very early in his life πŸ‘ Prior to attending medical school he studied the classics (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classics) giving him a well rounded personality. Learned to listen to critical views during the HIV/AIDS epidemic bringing out the humility in him. Speaking truth to power and holding on to job is a big achievement in itself these days which he has been able to do πŸ‘ Professionals like him may not get it right first always but give hope to ordinary citizens their heart is in the right place even as they let their scientific training guide their approach to work πŸ™

RIP Jerry Stiller πŸ™

Absolutely used to love and hate Frank Costanza on ‘Seinfeld’ – loud, foul-mouthed, always complaining curmudgeon dad of George Costanza played by recently departed great actor Jerry Stiller. Sign of a great acting if you can say “What a dickhead” and let out a loud guffaw at the same time πŸ˜‚
Apparently a very nice person too based on what his co-actors and those who interacted with him have said πŸ‘
RIP Jerry Stiller πŸ™

P.S. Got to youtube and watch the “touching” scene below described in the article:

When George Steinbrenner pays Frank and Estelle Costanza a visit to tell them that he fears their son is dead, Frank is distracted by a bigger, well, grievance. β€œWhat the hell did you trade Jay Buhner for?!” he yells at the Yankees owner.

In the midst of very personal grief after hearing about loss of his son, being a devoted sports fan, he still manages to give a piece of his mind to Mr. Steinbrenner 🀣

Among the most enduring mysteries in the past few years is the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight# MH370. Will the affected families ever get closure? Will the general ever know what really know what happened?
Sadly at this point the answer is still a No 😦

A long but interesting read on what could have happened
