COVID-19 and the False Science of Computer Models:

How to Demand Production of Necessary Materials and Understand the Difference between Science Fiction and Science Fact

TASA ID: 2409

Science fiction is alive and well in American science.  The perfect example of this is COVID-19 and the false science of computer models.  Understanding the language of science and how it is used to deceive the general public, juries and judges is critical for every attorney.  Every attorney must understand the language of science in order to show the judge and/or jury whether the science is fiction or fact.

Accident Investigations – Hiring the Right Expert at the Right Time

TASA ID: 16816

Investigating any accident is typically a complex endeavor in which there are numerous intrinsic processes and interrelated elements that have usually led to the accident.  Therefore, it is important that the expert investigating the accident has the training and experience to deal with that specific type of accident relating to your case.  Often, I see law firms reaching out for experts who have acronyms after their name (assumed to ensure credibility) but they do not possess the necessary background, experience or training related to the specific accident being investigated. Not all accidents are the same... construction, property or slip, trip and fall are all quite different.  The investigator has to have the experience with that accident type to be able to identify and analyze the individual elements that were or were not in place.  The investigator then must be able to piece the elements together to understand their relation to the “whole” of the accident to determine the root causes and liabilities associated with the accident. 

What We Can Learn from the 1918 Pandemic

TASA ID: 1056

The social impact of the Spanish Flu and Covid-19 are eerily similar. There are many things we can learn from the 1918 Pandemic’s impact on society, the economy and employee behaviors. Similar to Covid-19, businesses and schools were forced to close, social distancing was the new norm, economies took a terrible blow and production was slowed. One of the most important lessons we have learned from the Spanish Flu is that we cannot ease our guard too quickly. In the summer of 1918, we thought we had conquered the pandemic; however, it lasted through the spring of 1919 because we underestimated its resistance.

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.

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.
