Yes, well, now... In reply to the question, " Suggest how you would resolve the staging difficulties inherent in the SIR model'" you have written, quote,

"Do it on Python. "

What "staging difficulties" do they have in mind? SIR is a clearly defined model - as such it has no "difficulties". One uses or designs a different model if SIR isn't right. Or am again I not catching up with the creative use of English grammar inherent in scientific speech?

Like capturing all ideas into one ODE.

You remember that I bought the Philips oxygen compressor to increase my survival chances if I catch Covid and develop pneumonia? (I also got oxygen masks for cat.) Good hunch! I used it on Leela when she was recovering - the lowest flow, and I could see that it was making her stronger :-)

I wonder if my hazmat suit will ever come in useful.

Very good that she is doing better.  

Here, a friend and I are taking care of a young orphaned raccoon. He is making great progress, intelligent and curious, marching around the woods in a large fenced enclosure, and sleeping in a converted rabbit hutch "den" whenever he likes. He enjoys blueberries, grapes, apples, salmon slices, and some specially-prepared gourmet meals. He is so happy when he is eating - it's fun to watch.

Will be working with a professional wildlife rehabber soon and I'll probably take the state exam and get my license too; have been thinking about it for years.

Such creatures cross one's path from time to time and it is good if you can help stabilize them, protect but keep appropriate distance, and then release back to the wild when they are ready to go. 
That's great! A rewarding experience and an opportunity to meet interesting people.

Wishing your first patient a speedy recovery!

This has been an avocation for decades and a good thing to come out of the pandemic has been extra time and property renovation (shed, barn, fences are good to have). : )

totally corona free up here i think, have not seen a living sole.  I advice using no socks in mountains as faster to dry toas after crossing some mountain streams....and who on earth has time to put on socks, or to clean socks.....people on the lower planes?
