lol and a happy easter to you to Dan

I think the currently accepted hypothesis is that there was a migration of covid from Europe to NYC, much like after WW1 where returning serviceman brought the flu to philly. 

Wolfram has an interesting graph in the same notebook based on data from Singapore.

Re: Models for Covid-19

Oil and gas is easier. In the good old days when it literally gushed from wells and there was no self loathing over driving a gasoline powered vehicle, it was all ADI and peaceman + rachford. As it gets harder to extract and the price plummets due a generally flooded market and lower demand, it's n...

Re: Is the cure worse than the disease?

 lol nice sketch paul - the hospital needs the tesla logo on it tho.

My silicon valley experience was a lot like the tv show, but I did enjoy working on the hpc piece for a company scaling mri to whole population level. I admire tony stark, if anyone can get us out of this pickle, it's him.
