    Just the thing to ask at a place dedicated to sumo

    There was a time when I could do three of them with a lot of will power and effort. That was fifty pounds and fifty years ago.

    We seem to be wandering into material for the General Corona Banter topic.

    They seem to prefer devices that look like this.

    Banzuke for Natsu(?) 2020

    The Kyokai site does not have a banzuke release date for the July basho. Has it been confirmed that the banzuke released for Natsu will be the one used for July? Is there any indication what name they will assign to the former Nagoya basho?

    Probably still getting henka'd.

    Tampa is part of the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area. The four-county area is composed of roughly 3.1 million residents,[4] making it the second largest metropolitan statistical area (MSA) in the state, and the fourth largest in the Southeastern United States. The state of Florida is a real political melting pot (remember the Al Gore vote fiasco). The Republican governor defied the Democratic powers in the state to break the lockdown. His opponents and most of the national media came unglued and predicted a disaster. Massive testing funds have flooded the state to drive up the infection numbers, and there has been massive book cooking on both sides since the decision. There is no way now of knowing who, if anyone, is generating legitimate numbers.

    Hillsborough County is essentially the city of Tampa, FL. In the US., the larger cities have had, by far, the highest infection rates. The county is also in the state of Florida which has become a Covid political nightmare in the last few weeks. Any numbers that are reported out of Florida are highly suspect depending on which side of the fence the reporter is sitting on.

    Wearing a mask increases the number of times the face or mask is touched. A contaminated mask would contaminate the hands. Contaminated hands would contaminate both the mask and the face. Contaminated hands also touch items that are commonly touched by others. How many times an hour are you willing or able to wash your hands. The mask theory sucks. I'm done.

    For those who wear a mask for disease protection, it should, in theory, be loaded with contaminates. How many times per hour do you touch that damn thing?
  11. @Moderators. This topic definitely belongs in the Sumo Information forum.

    Mask wearing countries/cultures tend to take many steps to void contagious diseases. The masks, by themselves, are not necessarily the prime factor in their successful battle against covid. The primary value in masks is that they reduce the area that is contaminated by a coughing/sneezing virus carrier. They are of very limited use for asymptomatic carriers.

    The vast majority of the non-politicized medical professionals agree that the wearing of masks will do little or nothing to protect against acquiring the virus, and it may reduce the chance that a symptomatic patient would spread the virus. My wife and I are both approaching 80, and she is asthmatic with COPD. I volunteer to deliver meals to a bunch of 80 and 90 year olds. I wear a mask when near strangers and when delivering meals on the remote chance that I might acquire and spread the virus. It also gives comfort to those near me who might be in the throes of needless virus panic. I also use nitrile gloves and hand sanitizer when I am in a location that I might touch or handle something which may have recently been touched by others. This is probably much more effective than the mask, but, strangely, it is not emphasized in the media panic pieces.

    A Wrestling question for you

    How many people would pay to watch a set of legitimate matches? What do you do with a boxing ring when there is no scheduled boxing?
