America is a collection of individuals. In desperate times, though, we have to band together until we can ride out the storm.

The brilliant minds at MIT are doing what they can to help average Americans during the coronavirus pandemic.

One of the most pressing shortages facing hospitals during the Covid-19 emergency is a lack of ventilators. These machines can keep patients breathing when they no longer can on their own, and they can cost around $30,000 each. Now, a rapidly assembled volunteer team of engineers, physicians, computer scientists, and others, centered at MIT, is working to implement a safe, inexpensive alternative for emergency use, which could be built quickly around the world.

The team, called MIT E-Vent (for emergency ventilator), was formed on March 12, 2020, in response to the rapid spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. Its members were brought together by the exhortations of doctors, friends, and a sudden flood of mail referencing a project done a decade ago in the MIT class 2.75 (Medical Device Design). Students working in consultation with local physicians designed a simple ventilator device that could be built with about $100 worth of parts. They published a paper detailing their design and testing, but the work ended at that point. Now, with a significant global need looming, a new team, linked to that course, has resumed the project at a highly accelerated pace.

Well, it looks like we can file this report under DUUUUUHHHHHH!!! From The Daily Wire: Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels slammed President Joe Biden during a Fox News interview this week for the ongoing crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that Biden’s reversal of the last administration’s policies have caused a serious problem on the border. “When President Biden rescinded the emergency order on the southwest border, it stopped resources, and it stopped construction on our border,” Dannels said. “As a result of that, one area where the fence is not complete, we get five or six groups a day coming across there. It’s [opened up] the border. It opened up the message that it’s okay to come in this country. This administration owns this decision. And what it’s doing is it’s forcing us back to 2019, where we had the largest what I call crime scene in the country to include the largest humanitarian situation going on.” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mL6Hqonas7k And here’s your daily dose of random noise from Twitter… https://twitter.com/brandonwenerd/status/1368026400456732674 https://twitter.com/govkristinoem/status/1367944560580648967 https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1368046181721444352 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1368037566684033027
