- I’m starting to get the hang of this new editor for WordPress, but two little things still make me scratch my head: The scheduler for posts never really seems to work and having my favorites on the + button.
Every time I go to schedule a post, it either goes immediately or it resets for earlier than I wanted and the post stays in draft mode (this happened on my last post this morning, as it was supposed to post last night at 10, but this morning it was thinking it needed to wait until 10 am yesterday!??
- This one is related to a blog post I read from Boganwald last night. It’s COVID related. This past weekend, and this summer, when my in-laws were visiting, they have repeated the same story about Hospitals benefiting monetarily from just listing COVID-19 on a chart regardless of the cause of death. The example given is always of a motorbike accident where the dead rider is tested for COVID so the hospital can get more money.
When pressed, the facts of how this would work get fuzzy, but it is used a way to downplay the pandemic. So I finally jumped out to factcheck.org and found this article explaining the false story. If I had to guess, these false social media antidotes got picked-up by FoxNews and presented as fact (for my non-US readers, FoxNews has become the number one “news” source for Trump supporters and rarely presents the truth if it shows him in a bad light).
I’m posting this here, because I know my Mother-in-law reads my blog from time to time, and she and her husband need to know the facts, and they won’t listen to science, so maybe reading an independent fact check will help them understand that this pandemic is real.
