The Backside of COVID-19, or What The World May Look Like After The Virus Peaks©

TASA ID: 826

There is, we believe, a false expectation that after the virus peaks in a few weeks or days, that things will go back to normal.  That is most likely not the case.  In perhaps a year or longer, we should have a vaccine, which based upon our experiences with other viral vaccines may be partially effective against COVID-19 . Based upon the influenza vaccines, the effectiveness in preventing an infection is between 23% and 60% depending upon the virus and the vaccine. Essentially, entire countries will have to be immunized.  The alternative is that enough of us get the virus so that our society develops the “herd immunity.”  We also don’t know how effective or long-lasting that vaccine will be.  It is possible that the treatment could provide life-long immunity, but the prospects for that are, at this point, unknown, and probably very low- based upon the experience with influenza.

10 Ways Restaurants Can Survive and Thrive through the Pandemic

TASA ID: 2534

The restaurant industry is not dead.  It just became a temporary tragic victim within a global traumatic condition that threatens its very survival.

There is a difference.

There will be many restaurants that will end up closing permanently due to how they handle the overwhelming challenges now facing them and the industry.  However, there will also ultimately be survivors and some of those survivors will once again thrive as vibrant hospitality operations. They will find a ways to navigate these crippling conditions and make their way back to dry land where they can begin to securely build up their businesses again.

Forensic DNA on Guns

TASA ID: 16621

As DNA profiling has become increasingly sensitive, I have seen a steady increase in the use of DNA evidence in felon weapon cases. Often the weapon is recovered in the suspect’s home. In other cases, the weapons are found in a glove box or under the seat of a vehicle. The weapon is swabbed, the DNA is profiled, and more often than not, the resulting profiles are a mixture of 2-4 or more individuals.

The prosecution theory is: The suspect’s DNA is on the weapon; therefore, the suspect must have handled the weapon. The question for the defense: Is this always true?


COVID-19 and the False Science of Computer Models:

How to Defeat Them in Court

TASA ID: 2409

America and the world have devastated their economies based on the false science of computer models, which outputted millions of potential deaths from a respiratory virus known as COVID-19.  In America alone, economic damages to small businesses and farmers are in the trillions of dollars.  How did this come about?

CPS Checklist for Discovery

(While this applies primarily to California Child Welfare Agencies, it can be applicable to Child Welfare Agencies in the counties of other states as well.)

TASA ID: 1220

If you have not had a great deal of experience in litigation against county child welfare agencies, then there are some things which are helpful to know up front.  Like most people being sued, CPS agencies don’t like it.  They see themselves as “on the side of the angels” for children being abused and neglected and as proponents for strengthening families.  And indeed, the vast majority of the time, they are.  However, owing to a number of factors, including caseloads, insufficient staffing, divergent levels of skills, personal bias, ill-serving mindsets, and lack of resources; to name a few, mistakes will occur.  Sometimes; most of time in my experience, they are unintended. They may be deliberate owing to the press of work that rushes a judgment or fails to look at all the details, including exculpatory evidence.
