PSA: cloth and paper masks worn to help prevent spread of Coronavirus (and other diseases) do not need to form a seal to be effective.
They do two things:
a. capture most of the droplets you exhale/cough/sneeze out
b. slow down (and thus reduce the range of) any droplets not caught
If you have two layers of fabric covering your nose and mouth, you are wearing a fabric mask correctly.
If breath reflects off of them and escapes around the edges, that is just fine -- the bulk of the droplets were caught, and those few that leave around the edges are slowed a ton. Mission accomplished.
Misinformation on this point (most of which seems to be repeating proper fit and donning for PPE masks, which do need to form a seal) is leading people to not wear masks because they believe they are difficult or impossible to wear correctly.
Unfortunately, my original recipe for Pierian Spring, the rhubarb hefeweizen I made Summer of '15, was lost when Brewtoad shut down. However I do recall most of it, re-brewing is an opportunity to apply what I've learned, both on the day and in re-formulating the recipe. This is going to be a fun beer.
Do you know what Cell Site Simulators are? They are a privacy risk
A CSS is a device that mimics a legitimate cellular tower. Police around the world use this technology primarily to locate a phone (and therefore a person) with a high degree of accuracy, or determine who is at a specific location.
Lazy fediverse question: Is anyone aware of voice or video chat that has or uses any kind of environmental audio? Thinking of large virtual gatherings at $day_job and how they collapse after a certain size. Something that literally lets people move towards/away from topics of interest/disinterest could be super useful.
