Church battling coronavirus stay-at-home orders was burned to the ground

%name Church battling coronavirus stay at home orders was burned to the ground by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • A Mississippi church burning this week served as the latest flashpoint as coronavirus-related restrictions on gatherings around the country continue to generate extreme reactions and protests.
  • Local officials in Holly Springs, Mississippi, suspect the church burning was the work of an arsonist.
  • President Trump on Friday called for churches to be allowed to reopen immediately.

The smoldering embers left from a small-town Mississippi church fire this week — which authorities believe was the work of an arsonist due to parking lot graffiti that read: “Bet you stay home now you hypokrits” — comprise one of the starkest examples to date of how coronavirus-related strictures are prompting outlandish reactions in opposition to them.

The First Pentecostal Church in Holly Springs was burned down on Wednesday, about a month after a lawsuit was filed on behalf of the church against the coronavirus-related restrictions on large gatherings in the city. “We’ve kind of racked our brains and we have no idea,” church pastor Jerry Waldrop told reporters. “No enemies that we know of. We don’t know anyone that we even think could be capable of doing something like this.”

The top 10 Netflix shows everyone is binge-watching right now

%name The top 10 Netflix shows everyone is binge watching right now by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • One of the most-watched shows on Netflix this week is Dead To Me, a show about two grieving women who become friends which debuted its second season on the streamer earlier this month.
  • Rounding out the list of what else is hot at the moment are familiar favorites that range from Money Heist to Ozark, Breaking Bad, and Stranger Things.
  • This week’s list of the hottest TV shows on Netflix comes, as always, from the team at Reelgood.

On paper, you could argue that the sophomore season of Dead to Me which debuted on Netflix earlier this month doesn’t sound too much like the kind of hit series you’d expect a frustrated and traumatized public that’s going stir-crazy at home would want to binge in their free time during a months-long global pandemic. You’d be wrong, though, because not only is Dead to Me Season 2 — which stars Linda Cardellini and Christina Applegate — one of the most-watched shows on Netflix right now according to the weekly rankings we track. Its popularity also reflects two important truths about Netflix itself.

One of which is that, in case you needed any reminder, the streamer is masterful in its ability to create durable new TV franchises from scratch, whether it’s a docu-series like Tiger King, a raunchy reality show like Too Hot to Handle, or buzzy dramas that have global appeal, like Money Heist. The second thing is that it continues to be true that, especially during the time of the coronavirus, people are desperate for great storytelling from the entertainment mediums they support with their subscription dollars. Whether those stories offer up ridiculous central characters like a gun-toting exotic animal showman embroiled in a murder-for-hire plot, or two women who bond during therapy while each is grieving.

China has a vaccine candidate that can kill the coronavirus in humans

%name China has a vaccine candidate that can kill the coronavirus in humans by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • Coronavirus vaccine candidate Ad5-nCoV from Chinese pharmaceutical company CanSino is both safe and effective, according to the results of a Phase 1 clinical trial.
  • Researchers looking at 108 healthy volunteers who received the test drug in mid-March found the vaccine generates the kind of immune response that can kill the novel coronavirus.
  • The side-effects were mild and transitory, suggesting that the coronavirus treatment is safe to use. The Ad5-nCov drug has now moved to the next phase of clinical trials.

The coronavirus health crisis is still ravaging countries around the world. As European countries and US states start reopening, the virus is still raging in other countries, with South America and Russia being new epicenters for the disease. Even China locked down another region due to COVID-19 worries, and experts warn that a second wave is inevitable. The World Health Organization (WHO) said COVID-19 might be here to stay, but that’s not as bad as it sounds. An increasing number of therapies have yielded positive results, and researchers are quickly coming up with two other treatment avenues that might work. Some of them are working on antibody drugs that would work just like plasma transfusions from COVID-19 survivors, and others are creating vaccines that would hopefully train your immune system to produce its own antibodies capable of neutralizing the virus.

A series of reports in the past few days detailed the progress made so far on the vaccine front, with drugs from Oxford and Moderna showing promising results in pre-clinical and early-stage clinical trials. These are just two of the more than 100 vaccine candidates in development, and more than 12 drugs that reached clinical trials. They’re also not the only ones to show promise, as another promising vaccine candidate made in China appears to be safe and effective.

10 movies and shows to watch on Netflix before they leave in June

%name 10 movies and shows to watch on Netflix before they leave in June by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • Netflix is losing 72 movies and shows from its streaming service in June 2020.
  • Every season of all-time classics Mad Men and Cheers will be gone by the end of June.
  • The Disney exodus continues as well, with Tarzan and Avengers: Infinity War set to depart.
  • Visit BGR’s homepage for more stories.

If I had to pick the most impactful show that I discovered through Netflix, it wouldn’t be BoJack Horseman, Stranger Things, Mindhunter, or any of the other awesome original series that have debuted on the service over the years. No, the show that shot to the top of my list of all-time favorites after I watched it from start to finish on Netflix was Cheers. While some people discovered The Office, Parks and Recreation, Friends, or Schitt’s Creek for the first time on the world’s most popular streaming service, my classic sitcom of choice was slightly more ancient.

If, for whatever reason, you have never given Cheers a chance, I’m begging you to reconsider before it leaves Netflix. It’s astounding how well Cheers holds up almost 40 years after its premiere, and once it grabs you, you won’t be able to stop until you’ve watched all 11 seasons. Thankfully, you have a whole month to watch it, too.

There’s something you need to know about coronavirus and face masks

%name There’s something you need to know about coronavirus and face masks by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • Face masks are advised during the novel coronavirus health crisis, whether they’re homemade or disposable. Several studies have shown the virus can travel in the air with ease, and face masks can reduce the risk of transmission.
  • But the COVID-19 virus can survive on surfaces, including the exterior and interior sides of face masks.
  • New data shows that the virus can survive for up to 7 days on face masks, so reusable masks should be cleaned after each use and disposable masks should be discarded.

The novel coronavirus can live on a variety of surfaces for anywhere from a few hours to several days, as was reinforced by a new study a few weeks ago. That’s why we’ve all trained ourselves to treat surfaces as possible contaminants and why we’ve been cleaning counters, door handles, and basically anything that may contain traces of the virus more often than before. That’s also why we’ve been more apprehensive about packages the delivery person drops off, and why we’ve been wiping down certain products purchased from grocery stores and other places. The CDC a few days ago updated one of its COVID-19 pages to make it clear that the novel coronavirus spreads mainly from person to person, and surface transmission is less likely. That doesn’t change the fact that it can happen, and that the virus can survive on some surfaces for long periods.

A new report from an Italian health authority explains that SARS-CoV-2 can survive on the interior of face masks for as long as 4 days, which is an important reminder that masks have to be handled with care, especially if you’re handling them for a loved one who is infected.

HBO Max launches next week with hundreds of movies and TV shows

%name HBO Max launches next week with hundreds of movies and TV shows by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • The HBO Max lineup for June has just been released, and it includes “hundreds” of movies and TV series, according to the company, for what will be the streamer’s first full month of operation.
  • HBO Max officially launches on Wednesday, May 27, with everything HBO has ever released plus a library of third-party shows and movies — as well as HBO Max originals.
  • The new service will cost $14.99 per month. HBO Now and Charter video subscribers will get HBO Max for free, and so will millions of AT&T customers.

A new heavy-hitter joins the streaming video landscape next week, with the launch of HBO Max coming as a culmination of plans by HBO’s parent WarnerMedia to transform the premium cable network into more of a mainstream, Netflix-like player as opposed to the boutique identity HBO has cultivated since its inception.

HBO Max will cost $14.99 per month when it launches on May 27, which puts it on the expensive side relative to other streaming services like Netflix and Disney+, but it will come storming out of the gate right away, nonetheless. At launch, for example, the HBO Max lineup will include more than 10,000 hours of content, including every original series, movie, and documentary HBO has ever released — plus a wide variety of licensed content from Warner Bros. Down the line, the long-awaited, much-hyped director’s cut of Justice League that has long been the subject of a viral #ReleaseTheSnyderCut rallying cry online will debut on HBO Max in 2021.

A bunch of space junk just lit up the skies over Australia

%name A bunch of space junk just lit up the skies over Australia by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • A massive fireball appeared in the skies above Australia on Thursday night, prompting many witnesses to believe they were witnessing a meteorite entering Earth’s atmosphere.
  • After a closer look by experts, the object was declared to be nothing more than a heap of space junk left by a Russian rocket launch earlier in the day.
  • Roscosmos, Russia’s space agency, launched a military satellite on Thursday and the object seen by witnesses is believed to have been a discarded rocket stage.

For Australians in some parts of the continent, Thursday night brought with it a light show of cosmic proportions. Multiple reports from Victoria to Tasmania claimed that a meteorite could be seen streaking across the sky, leaving a long, bright tail in its wake as it burned up in Earth’s atmosphere.

Witnesses believed they were seeing a chunk of space rock meet its end right before their eyes. Unfortunately, the reality is a little bit less awesome: It was probably just a bunch of Russian space junk.

Doctors might already know which drugs can kill the coronavirus

%name Doctors might already know which drugs can kill the coronavirus by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley
  • Researchers looking for a coronavirus cure have figured out how the new pathogen interferes with the immune response once it infects cells.
  • The doctors showed that SARS-CoV-2 can inhibit interferon cells that would be able to slow down the viral replication, but allows other proteins to call for help from B and T cells.
  • A possible COVID-19 treatment could include interferons, these studies suggest. One other study that showed a triple-drug combo that includes interferon is effective against the novel coronavirus.
  • Visit BGR’s homepage for more stories.

Getting rid of the novel coronavirus infection is one of the priorities of doctors treating COVID-19 patients. Several therapies are in trial phases, as physicians have been using various drugs to address COVID-19 symptoms and help the immune system kill the virus. Some of these drugs, like remdesivir and a triple-combo therapy, can hasten recovery times. Blood thinners can prevent complications by preventing blood clotting.

But scientists have started figuring out how the virus attempts to neutralize the immune system’s response, and think they know what drugs could actually kill the virus.
