The ordered was lifted even though the State does not meet their a priori metrics for re-opening, but is opening because a model projects they will meet those goals in 4 weeks. In fact, there are more daily new positive tests on January 25th than there were on December 7 when the lock down began.
The decision to re-open is based either on pseudo science or politics – a recall petition to remove the Governor is nearing its required signatures. Some joke that Newsom said all decisions are based on numbers – and in this case, his poll numbers – hah hah 🙂
The surge myth was created because of a very weak correlation without causation, which provided a convenient way to explain away what they could not explain (as one paper headline proclaimed “California has run out of reasons“). With new cases in CA and LAX peaking before the holidays, the “surge upon surge” meme collapses.
The single highest day of new positive tests was on December 15th. The 7-day moving average peaked on December 26th. There was no holiday surge and anyone claiming such is lying. The large increases in cases began in early November and rose steadily, unmodified by holidays.
The DJI Mini 2 quadcopter is quite a nice unit, and its under 249 grams. In some countries, that low mass exempts the unit from various regulations; in the U.S. that mass exempts it only from FAA registration and future Remote ID requirements – still need to fly it properly under FAA rules and regulations.
But being exempt from future (as yet unknown) Remote ID requirements is a big plus.
