about me

I still love to play, altho I do worry about the future of our game; I am a neurologist, with a headache center just North of Chicago, and avid hockey player.....

I have won a # of national team titles, including the Trials in 1996(represented the US in Rhodes that year).....

There probably WILL be a Montreal NABC
The decision to hold the Nationals should not have anything to do with finances; in fact, if they hold it, and people are sickened, they would likely face multiple lawsuits.* The only consideration should be: how safe is it to hold the tournament? We do not know at this point ...
The Science of Coronavirus
yes, developing and testing these vaccines is remarkably complex HOWEVER: a group(U of Pittsburgh) has been developing a vaccine for other coronaviruses, they feel they are close to one for this, because it is not new(vaccines for coronaviruses), maybe 6 to 9 months instead of a year or ...
The Science of Coronavirus
yes, it is incredible that they had a (crude) "vaccine" in the 1790's...Edward Jenner(https://www.google.com/search?q=smallpox+vaccine+original&rlz=1C5CHFA_enUS805US805&oq=smallpox+vaccine+original&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l4.7230j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8 I do think(hope??) that with so many worldwide biotech and ...

USBF & Coronavirus
Jan, yes, of course, someone can pick up the virus at any time after testing; I highly suspect the Trials will be cancelled, and should be cancelled,but it could conceivably be viable with a lot of precautions: testing(maybe even three times: 3 days before the trials, and just ...
USBF & Coronavirus
I am assuming that we will have easy availability to tests by May; (I thought in late January that we would have these by mid-February) Besides a current test result, I think participants should also sign a legal waiver. The extent of the virus in the U.S. is unknown ...
R.I.P. Jim Mahaffey
Thanks Gary, he will be missed.....
USBF & Coronavirus
I suspect the trials will be cancelled; we are about to get a tsunami of serious cases. HOWEVER, I think it could be held IF: everyone, including all non-playing people, is TESTED (and brings certification) for the virus within days of the event. AND many precautions during the event.......it ...
Open Letter to the ACBL on Covid-19
1. We do not know the fatality rate, as we don't know the denominator; guesstimates are all over the place, from 0.5% to 3.4% 2. Mathematically we will probably have a Tsunami of cases in the U.S. starting in 2 to 5 weeks, give or take ...
Open Letter to the ACBL on Covid-19
Medically, it is very risky to hold the nationals; for the person, and for their myriad contacts back home. Legally: say someone dies; the ACBL could be looking at a lawsuit; not an unrealistic possibility. Logistically: afterwards, if someone is identified as positive; what do you do?..does the ACBL ...
