there is a belief (one that i don’t believe is even close to being widespread) that a person in financial straits is more likely to compromise things entrusted to them in order to alleviate their financial woes. i’m sure it has happened, but they don’t often give the person the benefit of the doubt.

Only in America, you can call an organization an NGO (non-governmental organization) while it is 86% funded by the US government and get away with it. It was so in 2016.

Just one click further you have the definition of NGO: Non-governmental organizations (also known as NGOs,[3][4] or non-government organizations[5]) are organizations that are independent of any government.

 

Please define 'independent'.

this was in 1989 -----we are in 2020-  a lot has changed for the better for the average chinese person

 

Unfortunately, the current president, Xi Jinping, has changed the laws so he can remain in power. He has tightened everything up.

 

And... in addition to the Falun Gong, China is wiping out the history of the uyghur popuation in western China. Their centuries old graveyards are being bulldozed and the living put in training camps

 

Yup, getting better all the time

Did you notice that the Aljazeera article is almost four years old? March 11, 2018 was almost two years in the future at that time.

Ebola spreading in Democratic Republic of Congo during coronavirus fight, officials say

The Democratic Republic of Congo had its hopes dashed this weekend after several Ebola-related deaths were reported, further demoralizing the country as it battles the COVID-19 pandemic.

The country has been fighting an Ebola epidemic since August 2018. An officially tally cited by AFP puts fatalities from the viruses at more than 2,200.

For an outbreak to be officially declared over, 52 days must pass without any new cases – which is twice the amount of time it takes for the virus to incubate.

Speaking to France 24, Dr. Lusungu Mutuza described the psychological toll the two-front battle has taken on the country.

“Morally it’s very discouraging since we’ve worked for a year and a half, two years, on this epidemic and [we could finally] start to breathe easy,” Mutuza said. “Then suddenly we have to start from zero again. It's a psychological blow.”

Cleaners on Monday were roaming the streets of Kinshasa – the country’s capital and epicenter of the outbreak. The Palace of the People, which seats the National Assembly and Senate, was also fumigated.

The DRC, with a population of more than 84 million people, is particularly vulnerable to the COVID-19 pandemic because of its dilapidated infrastructur. As of Monday, its capital has confirmed 235 cases with 20 deaths, according to the latest figures from the Johns Hopkins University.e and inadequate health care services.

Why clean it if the covid 19 dies in 24 hours? just wait a day before you use it again.

Because it does not die in 24 hours. From the article linked above: 

 

"Method 1: Rotation

 

Dr. Tsai cites a study in the New England Journal of Medicine that uses a round robin rotation of masks so that each one is rested for at least 72 hours before being worn again. Tsai has not experimentally verified this method himself, but it relies on the widely held belief that the coronavirus should not survive more than 72 hours on an inhospitable host, like the surface of an N95 mask. The downside to this method is that you need four masks per wearer, and that's assuming you use only a single mask each day. But if you just make a single trip for essentials any given day, the numbers work."

 

I believe it has been found to survive for up to nine days on a hard metal surface like a door knob.
