Coronavirus updates: Bernie Sanders calls for $2,000 cash payments

Bernie Sanders calls for monthly $2,000 payment to every US household during coronavirus crisis

Sen. Bernie Sanders called Tuesday for a monthly $2,000 payment to every U.S. household for the duration of the coronavirus crisis. 

“We can do it. We can address this crisis. We can minimize the pain,” the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said during a livestream on a night when Florida, Illinois and Arizona hold primary elections.

The senator also called for unemployment insurance of up to 100% of a worker’s prior salary with a cap of $75,000. He proposed a moratorium on evictions, foreclosures and utility shutoffs, and a waiver on all student loan payments as workers face job losses. 

Sanders also called for Medicare to handle all costs for emergency coverage during the crisis. He pushed for the government to use emergency authority to spur increased production of supplies such as masks and ventilators. 

Officials in Washington have scrambled to head off economic disaster as the restaurant, travel and entertainment industries take a drubbing from the outbreak. Many cities and states have shut down schools and regular activities to encourage residents to stay home and prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease. 

Congress is working on a massive stimulus package that could cost more than $1 trillion, with more measures to combat the outbreak likely ahead. The Trump administration’s stimulus proposal could include a one-time cash payment to all Americans, an idea that has gained traction among Republicans.

103-year-old woman becomes oldest person to beat coronavirus

A 103-year-old woman has become the oldest person to beat coronavirus and return home.

Zhang Guangfen recovered from the disease after receiving treatment for just six days at a hospital in Wuhan – the Chinese city at the centre of the outbreak.

The centenarian’s quick recovery was down to her having no underlying health conditions apart from mild chronic bronchitis, her doctor Dr Zeng Yulan told reporters.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

She was diagnosed at Liyuan Hospital, Tongji Medical College, in Wuhan on 1 March, Chutian Metropolis Daily reports.

The newspaper published a video showing the woman being escorted out of the hospital to a waiting ambulance by a group of medical workers as she was discharged on Tuesday.

Older people and those with pre-existing medical conditions are more at risk of developing severe coronavirus symptoms.

The grandmother has become the oldest person to recover from the deadly disease so far – days after a 101-year-old man also beat the virus in Wuhan.

A 100-year-old man with Alzheimer’s disease, hypertension and heart failure also recovered from the virus in Wuhan this week after being treated by military doctors.

Wuhan’s 11 million residents have been in lockdown since late January.

The disease has infected more than 80,700 people in China and killed more than 3,000.

What Filmmakers Should Probably Know About Film Festivals – Daniel Sol [HollyShorts Co-Founder]


In this Film Courage video interview, Hollyshorts Film Festival Co-Founder Daniel Sol talks about making short films in today’s online landscape, submitting to festivals, and other filmmaking tips for filmmakers making short films.










Stuff we use:
CAMERA – This is the camera we have used to film 90+% of our interviews (over 200 interviews and counting) It continues to be our workhorse –

LENS – Most people ask us what camera we use, no one ever asks about the lens which filmmakers always tell us is more important. This lens was a big investment for us and one we wish we could have made sooner. Started using this lens at the end of 2013 –


Rode VideoMic Pro – The Rode mic helps us capture our backup audio. It also helps us sync up our audio in post

Audio Recorder – If we had to do it all over again, this is probably the first item we would have bought –

LIGHTS – Although we like to use as much natural light as we can, we often enhance the lighting with this small portable light. We have two of them and they have saved us a number of times –

COMPUTER – Our favorite computer, we each have one and have used various models since 2010 –

EDITING – We upgraded our editing suite this year and we’re glad we did! This has improved our workflow and the quality of our work. Having new software also helps when we have a problem, it’s easy to search and find a solution –

150 Years of Human Rights in Minnesota

In 1858, Minnesota was admitted to the Union. Its constitution declared that “there shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude in the state.” Thus, Minnesota joined the ranks of 16 other free states in a nation that also included 15 states where the slavery of African Americans was legal. Only three years later, Minnesotans would be among the first to answer the call to fight in a bloody Civil War, a war that would settle the matter of slavery, yet leave much work undone—work that continues today, as America still seeks to fulfill the promise of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness guaranteed to all.

In this look back at Minnesota’s 150 years of statehood, we recall some of the milestones that have marked the struggle for human rights in our state. It’s an epic story, a blockbuster, with twists and turns and fascinating characters—and it’s still being written. It’s a story to which we all can still contribute, but to do so, we need to know what’s happened so far.
