Pragmatic Prophet: Recent Trends in COVID Cases and Deaths in the United States and California . by Alice B. Clagett

Imaged on 31 October 2020; published on 1 November 2020

Dear Ones,

Here are recent trends in COVID cases and deaths in the United States, as compared to California. For my analysis of these trends, please see the caption below the image …

Image: Recent Trends in COVID Cases and Deaths in the United States and California,” by Alice B. Clagett, 31 October 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0 … DESCRIPTION: For the United States, I note that new COVID cases have greatly increased this autumn (as expected because of the flu season) but that new COVID deaths have plateaued at less than half what they were in the Spring of 2020. That may mean that the COVID virus has become less deadly, as was the case with the Influenza virus after the first few years. It might also mean that those most susceptible to COVID were first hit and passed on because of it. Or both might be true: COVID may be less deadly now, and as well, the most vulnerable sector of the United States population may, in the main, already have passed on. In comparing the California graphs to the United States graphs, I note that new California cases are now down-trending, whereas new United States cases are up-trending. New California deaths rose to a new high in late Summer, but are now steadily declining. Comparatively speaking, both the new Cases and the new Deaths graphs bode well for California … CREDIT: Rough sketch based on New York Times statistics.

Lady Face Trail – 360 Degree View . by Alice B. Clagett

Filmed on 24 October 2020; published on 27 February 2021; revised
Location: Lady Face Trail, Agoura Hills, California

Dear Ones,

Here is a 360-degree scenic view at a high point on Lady Face Trail. There is a Summary after the video …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Image: “Lady Face Trail, Agoura Hills, California 1: Trailhead,” by Alice B. Clagett, 24 October 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0

Image: “Lady Face Trail, Agoura Hills, California 1: Trailhead,” by Alice B. Clagett, 24 October 2020, CC BY-SA 4.0All right! This is where I came from. [Pans to right; shows trail behind her.] This is a 360 degree view. And it is relatively untrodden country … mostly little used horse trails. [Continues panning to the right.] And this is where I am going. [Shows trail ahead of her.] And this is the rest of the 360 degree, going around here. And there we are back where we came from. [Shows trail behind her again.] Nice, huh?

From the scat, I would say there are just a lot of big coyotes on this trail … and they are very well fed, which is certainly ease to the heart, and balm to the Soul.
