2) When Covid-19 is in Your Prison

I was a prison doctor for 30 years and battled a different virus at the start of my career in 1987. It was HIV, and killed many young men before we had any drugs that worked. COVID-19 can kill more AND medical and custody staff can bring it into their homes and the community. WHICH WAY WHAT WE DO NOW MATTERS. If you have ever worked in a prison you know that 'social distancing' will not work. How do you do that when 120 men sleep in one room, share 10 toilets, one urinal and 12 showers (when they are all working, which is rare.)

4) After Covid 19 - The World Will Never be the Same Again, It Will be Better

Let's put all that bad stuff aside for a few minutes and focus on some good news. • Overnight, opportunities will present themselves to those who are looking, the US economy will take off like a rocket, faster than it fell when Covid 19 became a household word. Millionaires will be made as the world finds and adjusts to doing business in new and better ways.

• Much like what happened after 911 with security, there will be almost unlimited funds available for cleaning, sanitation, and maintenance. Being a janitor, housecleaner or maid will go from being seen as a dead-end job (by some), to a profession that is in demand, important and respected, based on science and the need to maintain a safe and healthy environment in the future.

• The education system as we know It will cease to exist. Replaced by homeschooling, on-line training, and alternative learning programs that challenge, entertain and develop minds much better than butts in chairs for 12-20 years.

• Everybody who can, will work from home (at least most of the time), saving transportation costs, reducing the use of fossil fuels and clearing highways like they were in 1964, leaving office buildings empty for yet unidentified uses.

• No more cash, checks or visits to the bank or cash machine. Financial transactions will be done electronically, even our beloved credit cards will disappear as money goes online, touch-free and wireless.

• No more filling out needless forms and waiting to see the Doctor, Tele-medicine, remote testing and monitoring will speed up the process, give better results and lower costs.

• Shopping on-line will replace retail stores and shopping centers, until 3D printers make what you need, when you want it, at home, for 1/3 of the cost.

• There will be a mass exodus from major metropolitan areas as people spread out, looking for more space and once again seek a simpler, slower, safer life, out of town.

• Transportation will change, there will be far less travel. Conventions, trade shows, seminars, and workshops will be online to expand reach, reduce costs and travel. You won't go places unless there is no other way to get the job done.

• Restaurants, hotels, casinos, and amusement parks will see a substantial drop in business as consumers go local and learn to enjoy take out and dining at home. • Family, community, and faith will replace parties, drugs, fighting, and destructive anti-social behavior because it leads to a better, safer and more satisfying way to live longer.

• Research, ingenuity, passion, and compassion will find ways to end or at least manage crime, homelessness, and disease.

• Realize that it's going to take at least 30 – 45 days to break the chain of viral transmission if everyone applies the basic principles of safety and infection control.

Enjoy your 30-day paid vacation, just don't go anywhere. You've probably never taken 30 days off since you started working, do it now. This will give you time to clean your glasses. Chances are you'll see your life, family and situation differently after looking at yourself in the mirror for 30 days. What may shock you the most is how fast things will change. No segment of business or society will remain untouched or unimproved by the changes that will take place over the next few years. Welcome to the future! What was yesterday's norm will be gone forever as old ways are replaced by Apps, software and robotics.

6) Five Ways Marketers Can Mobilize and Find Inspiration During the Pandemic

This story, 5 Ways Marketers Can Mobilize and Find Inspiration During the Pandemic, was originally published by Adweek.

There's no other way to say it: We are facing an unprecedented international crisis in COVID-19, a pandemic that's rapidly unfolding before our eyes. The information evolves daily. The road ahead is tough to see. But one thing is clear: The hard work has just begun. Stopping the spread requires each and every one of us, with cross-sector industry support. As I continue to think about how best to help in the days, weeks and months ahead, I recognize how much I've learned as I've watched our partners show up, raise their hands and go all-in. We're all in this together, so I want to share what I've learned so far with the hope that these insights help others.

Everyone who can help wants to; they just need a job to do

A member of my team told me that her neighbor built a spreadsheet to give fellow neighbors a way to share the specific ways they could help each other, anything from "I can tutor geometry over FaceTime" to "I'm happy to pick up groceries for anyone who is unable." They also included any specific needs they might have. Everyone wanted to help, and many have unique skills—they just needed the spreadsheet to translate goodwill into action. In less than 24 hours, it had nearly 600 contributors. This example holds true at the corporate level, too. Some CEOs are able to say, "Use our production resources." Others are able to deploy their creative teams or donate media. They just need the spreadsheet. This is the power of convening. When messaging can change overnight, do what you can today As our understanding of COVID-19 evolves so rapidly, the wait-and-see approach can be tempting. What if we create messaging that quickly becomes outdated?

During catastrophes like 9/11 or Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, our efforts were more about recovery than prevention. The COVID-19 crisis is different. The virus is spreading so quickly that there's no time to worry about the expiration date of today's message, not if it's needed today. 

There's no such thing as a competitor Media, tech and digital companies are generating unbranded, platform-agnostic creative that can be used by anyone who wants it because getting out the message about social distancing, personal hygiene and mental health is the priority right now.

The uniting principle is that it's all hands on deck time. Peer pressure can be positive We can't just meet people with the right message at the right time. We have to get people to relay that message to others who trust them: in texts, on phone calls, in workplace Slack channels, on social media accounts.

Scale and speed are imperative.

The message must spread faster than the virus. This is a moment for irreversible empathy Before this pandemic, millions of people woke up not knowing how they'd put dinner on the table or how they'd pay their medical bills.

As the number of people who find themselves in this situation soars, so too does the number of people who understand at a visceral level what instability feels like.

As we move through these next weeks, it will be critical to reflect on how we can deploy what we learn not just to address the coronavirus pandemic but also to recognize severe hardship, insecurity and inequality in all forms as we rebuild.

And we will rebuild. No one can offer us certainty right now, and increased empathy doesn't pay anybody's grocery bill. But as I see the unprecedented response rise up to meet this unprecedented crisis—each time I speak with someone desperate to help in any way they can—I am reminded of my hope.
