The reason the quarantine is lasting so long is because we have such an inexperienced president. Elect Biden to return back to normal?

The lock-downs, quarantines and deaths due to the virus is that it is a nasty virus and scientists, world organizations, experts and political leaders have been stumped from time to time in determining what is going on and how to respond. China created it, and they have not been forth-right is getting important information out. The WHO and CDC both have flubbed their responsibilities from time to time. World Leasers, state and local leaders have been playing politics and not listening to the ‘experts’ out there. And even the experts have made many mistakes about the virus. Biden would not have done any better. His mind is just not up to even simple daily tasks, let alone a large issue like this.

How to determine the reason for unconsciousness?

Can visual inspection tell the reason a creature is unconscious? Is there a difference between a creature that is sleeping normally, sleeping magically, or unconscious due to dropping to 0 HP? Does a stable creature at 0 HP look or behave different to an unstable one?

This came up in game last night after a character in darkness cast sleep on themself. Another character moved to the unconscious figure. The player said “I shake them awake”. My question was, “How do you know they are sleeping? They might be at 0 HP, in which case wouldn’t the appropriate action be to use Lay on Hands?” The player knew what had happened but all the character knew was that they moved to within darkvision range and saw their friend unmoving on the ground.

Give me one good reason Trump shouldn’t be president?

Notice that the only things close to a “good” reason, given was the laundry list of “charges” lodged against Trump which were debunked during the impeachment inquiry! I’m guessing @Andre L didn’t know that.

Those who use COVID-19 deaths NEVER explain when he should or could have done differently! Everything else is personal unvalidated bias that is ignorant of the things he’s accomplished or guts he has shown since the beginning of his presidency( listed below)!. Why do you think that is.

Conservative voters got fed up with politicians who forgot why they got elected when they went to Washington. They get caught up in the politics, the political minutia and lose the nerve to do what they feel is right. Many Conservative voters thought they saw something in Trump and thought he wouldn’t be prone to that. They turned out to be very right, more so than they ever thought. This is why support for Trump has done nothing but grow since 2016, even by those who are put off by his bloviating antics.

What Trump has done in the last 3 years is turn the economy around into the strongest economy the country has seen in the last 15 years at least. He has taken on tough problems other presidents kicked the can down the road on for decades. This includes illegal immigration. It includes trade issues with China on issues like American intellectual property, trade imbalances and too much dependency on them in areas manufacturing, this now on full display due to COVID-19. He pushed through a major new US, Canadian, Mexican trade partnership (USMCA), eliminating a number of problems with the old one (NAFTA). He has taken a very visible stance with the pro-life movement.

Even though the economy, the stock market and American lives in general have taken a serious hit from the coronavirus. The economy is still fundamentally strong thanks to Trump’s work over the past 3 years (at least for a while longer). The market is starting to come back. Although some stocks will be legitimately adversely effected for the near future due to supply chain and travel issues. This fundamental strength is what will help it recover. States are also slowly starting to let business reopen. This is unlike the crash of 2008, where the economy had systemic problems that needed fixing before it could recover.

Trump implemented restrictions on travel from China in January. Liberals called him “racist” for doing so. They were the ones who still hadn’t got a grasp of the danger presented by the Chinese coronavirus yet, not Trump. More travel restrictions from other regions as well as other actions were implemented soon after. Trump has been ahead of the game from the beginning.

The reason behind IPv6 adoption rate dramatical drop in China according to Google measurements?

Google has an IPv6 measurement page that reports that their numbers report on the percentage of users that access Google over IPv6.

According to the report by Jan 2020 0.3% of users in China used IPv6 to access Google

However, looking at this metric in dynamic we see the substantial drop starting from June 2019.
enter image description here

I failed to find any solid news that may cause such behavior. I have two hypotheses in mind.

  1. Also as it is a percentage metric, they can adjust their calculation on the total internet penetration rate in China.
  2. Previously open discussions between netizens took place on Google Plus groups. In April 2019,
    Google shut down Google Plus. Technical discussions continue on
    Chinese-language blogs, forums, and groups. For obvious reasons,
    discussions must be hosted outside China, and posters must register under pseudonyms. So probably that caused the shift from Google services but I hardly believe that it may cause such plummet.

Is there any legitimate reason for Dem to believe Joe Biden can beat Trump in November?

Yes, if the media keeps up with all the fake  news, Biden could win the election. 

And, if he does, people  need to hold onto their hats  because life as you knew it will never be the same. You just wait and see what the Democrats have in store for you.

Besides, Biden”s mental decline is obvious, so when you vote for him, remember, his VP will be promoted to President soon enough. Then the demo can have a big coo to have the first female President. They still are licking Hillary wounds from 2016 Democratic Presidential fail. 

Reason why too small photos are not uploaded to Google Photos

When I sync a local photo directory with Google Drive / Photos, Google Backup and Sync cannot upload small photos.

I think this is due to Google's choice rather than technical considerations with small photos. Is my assumption correct here? If so, what would be the reasons why Google refused to upload small photos with Backup & Sync?

Can the 2019-20 coronavirus pandemic be a reason to reject my Schengen visa application?

I am planning a trip to the Netherlands in mid-April, and I have already made reservations. I understand that due to the current coronavirus pandemic, I may have to postpone my trip or cancel it entirely.

However, instead of deciding now, I would like to decide later (in April) whether I should continue with my travel plans or cancel it (depending on travel warnings issued by my country (India) and the Netherlands, which would apply at that time hour). Which requires that I proceed with my visa application now (since I must apply at least 15 business days before). I understand that it is very likely that I will have to cancel or postpone my trip (the global travel situation seems unlikely to improve next month, but I want to remain optimistic, or at least not regret that I could have applied for the visa in March if the situations to mid-April are favorable for a trip).

My concern is whether the current coronavirus pandemic can be cited as a reason for visa refusal by the embassy of the Netherlands. That is, does the current pandemic increase the probability of visa refusal compared to normal circumstances? Are there any rules in the Schengen Area visa policy that relate to situations like this?

UPDATE: To clarify, my concern here is whether the current pandemic will increase the probability of visa denial. (Whether or not I can travel to the Netherlands in April is a different matter.) The reason I am separating these two concerns is because with the new EU visa rules, I am able to qualify for a long-valid visa (as I have been granted multiple Schengen visas in the past), so if in the unfortunate case I have to postpone my April trip, I can do it and plan again with a much shorter notice. Whereas if I don't apply for a visa now and do it later, I will have to plan weeks in advance again (since I have to apply for a visa 15 business days / 3 weeks in advance).

UPDATE: If the Netherlands issues a travel restriction in the near future, will that result in a visa denial or application denial?

Can liberals articulate a good reason why they don't like Trump, which isn't just what CNN tells them?

In addition to CNN, I watch MSNBC, CNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, PBS, BBC America, listen to NPR, read WSJ, NYT, Washington Post, LA Times, Chicago, SF and Dallas, Bloomberg Business Week, Time, and they all say almost the same.

FUX News channels are completely different. I laugh about it a lot.

seo: Google can't crawl the URL and there is no obvious reason why

I am trying to crawl a website using the url inspection tool from google search console.

it has three URLs:

the first two urls were crawled correctly and now when i search for them they are indexed immediately but the third one is not crawled and the result says

The URL is not in Google. This page is not in the index, but not because of an error. See details below to find out why it wasn't indexed

And when I look at the coverage there is no clear indication of what is wrong. Also, if I take a live test, mark the entire section and get green circles for everyone

Here is a long list of coverage:
