[ Politics ] Open Question : Why did Rush Limbaugh tell his listeners on Feb 24, 2020: “I’m dead right on this. The coronavirus is the common cold, folks.”?

Isn’t that both misleading and dangerous? Could he lose his broadcast license for endangering the public in this way? Responding to Kathy is a Nurse: Thanks, I would believe that 1% (and dropping) mortality rate.  As hospitals get more experience, they improve treatment, and so mortality drops.  On the other hand, mortality from a bad flu like 2017-18 was 75,000/45,000,000 = 0.16%, so isn’t COVID-19 more dangerous than the flu and far more dangerous than the common cold? More to Kathy:  Also, the media has been saying 2% mortality, which was the early official rate, even if it may now be down to 1%.  Given those facts, it more dangerous to report double the mortality rate, 2%, or to report 0.001% as Rush Limbaugh did?  I think Limbaugh’s claim is worse. The CDC disagrees with Limbaugh https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html  “What is a novel coronavirus?” “The virus causing coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is not that same as the coronaviruses that commonly circulate among humans and cause mild illness, like the common cold.”

Way to protect from cold boot attack

After reading some research papers about cold boot attack, I got a big shock and start searching for ways to protect against that kind of vulnerability. I got one solution that is using BitLocker pin access to RAM. But I have still a concern.

  1. Windows 10 Latest patch can protect cold boot attack?
  2. DDR3 or DDR4 RAM still have vulnerability?
  3. Is there another way to protect rather than BitLocker pin?

What are the rules for cold exposure?

What are the rules for cold exposure?

The rules for cold in PHB p. 110, indicates that someone with winter gear could basically travel at extremely cold temperature (anything below 0 degrees Fahrenheit) for weeks or even months, sleep right outside in the snow, and as long as they have food and water suffer no adverse effects.

Am I missing something?

What is Cold Iron actually? [closed]

It came up in Dresden Files, but is not limited to that game, you can find the term in DnD as well. I would like to know what it means.

If you look for Cold Iron on Wikipedia, you only get iron: “Cold iron is a poetic and archaic term for iron.”
This would imply everything made mostly from Fe is cold iron. Clearly, this is not the case, in every game Cold Iron is something special, the every day sword is not made out of it.

The Dresden Files rulebook is not very specific about it:

something that anyone could reasonably get access to, but usually doesn’t carry on them (like cold iron) page 185.

What is cold iron?
How do I create cold iron?
How do I get cold iron?

To make the question easier to understand, compare Cold Iron to Holy Water. You know how it is different from usual Water, you know how you get it or create it.

DMG rules states Exterme Cold effect, but what of less extreme cold effects?

DMG P110 states that

Whenever the temperature is at or below 0 degrees Fahrenheit, a creature exposed to the cold must succeed on a DC 10 Constitution saving throw at the end of each hour or gain one level of exhaustion. Creatures with resistance or immunity to cold damage automatically succeed on the saving throw, as do creatures wearing cold weather gear (thick coats, gloves, and the like) and creatures naturally adapted to cold climates.

0F (-17C) is what they are referring to. But what if a party stays outside for a week at between 32F (0C) and 0F (-17C) ? That seems pretty cold to me and still could make a normal human suffer from exposure doesn’t it ? Did the game designer produced an errate ? looks like they missed the mark here.
