    Yes use a manual treadmill that is powered by you running on it, these actually give you a better exercise as you have to use your own energy to make the treadmill belt turn. The faster you run the more energy you can create and store in the battery.

    IMO

    I'm not sure that's the best place to be 'storing' your mask when you're not wearing it as you're supposed to sneeze/cough in your elbow. Funny vid though :)

    Dollar Tree, Family Dollar reverse mask policy again. Now requiring customers wear masks amid COVID-19.

    Maybe they have been reading the threads on NamePros :xf.wink:


    Policies that are based on logic and compassion are ultimately going to win despite all the nastiness that is thrown into the debates by some people along the way. (y)


    @Kenny , I believe that you and all the other members here who have been trying their best to create awareness around the necessity of wearing Masks have done some good for Humanity.:angelic:

    IMO

    https://edition.cnn.com/2020/08/09/world/doctor-runs-with-mask-on-trnd/

    Dr. Tom Lawton wore a three-layered cloth mask during two runs, totaling 22 miles.
    (CNN)A doctor in England wanted to prove that face masks won't impair your oxygen levels. So he ran for 22 miles while wearing one.

    Throughout his running journey, Tom Lawton used a pulse oximeter to monitor his oxygen levels. The medical device measures the saturation of oxygen in a person's red blood cells and typically clips to your finger.
    "The mask didn't come off at all (no food or drink) -- and oxygen levels were stubbornly 98% every time I checked," he tweeted last month.
    In an on air interview with CNN Sunday morning, the ICU doctor said he wanted to show everyone that masks are safe to wear and are a necessity in curbing the spread of the coronavirus.

    Top health officials have changed their minds about face mask guidance -- but for good reason

    Health officials urge people to wear a mask not only for themselves but to protect others. This guidance has been met with controversy over the past few months as people are refusing to wear them.
    "I was frustrated because I've seen some photos where people who sat at a desk wearing a mask and claimed that the oxygen levels dropped just simply wearing a mask," Lawton said.


    Duly inspired, Lawton donned his three-layered cloth mask one day and then ran 8 miles to work while monitoring his oxygen levels. After work, he ran another 14 miles. While he does admit the mask was rather uncomfortable, he says his oxygen levels never dropped.
    "I don't think that masks are going to solve this on their own," Lawton said. "We need to keep distance, comply with isolation, wash hands and wear a mask."

    thanks @abdulbasit

    1) I have no time to read through all of that
    2) do you trust a .news? having not even a good keyword?
    -I don't-
    3) I have evidence from other sources, that masks offer great protection
    4) I now heard, that even simple masks grant protection not only to others but to the owner, too.

    to me it's obvious

    and even if they don't protect
    ( which is unlikely )
    I can see no harm in giving it a try

    I wear a mask, but I can't see where I'm going half the time because my glasses fog up!

    I once worked a couple of months spraying crops in Sydney in humid 35-40C heat.
    I was wearing one of these masks and an agri spray suit.
    These masks can be quite physically draining if worn for extended periods of time.
    Make sure you get the correct filters!

    the trick is fixing the metal part on top of the nose
    in a way that it doesn't leak

    I went to the dentist today - she was wearing two masks - one n95 under a surgical mask, which IMO would seem sufficient.

    This article was sent to me re face masks and a ranking of the various types of masks, best on down.

    https://www.komando.com/coronavirus...ium=nl&utm_source=notd&utm_content=2020-08-12

    We use the second top ranked mask because the top ranked mask is near to almost impossible to acquire in any quantity.

    Thought it was a pretty good article about masks, testing and might be interesting or useful to some here/

    Yeah, never seems to work for my nose.
    I'm just using the medical disposables - it's more about protecting others than myself.
    I've heard that wiping an oil or anti-fog solution works, so must give that a try :)

    I just checked, yup, mine has a one-way valve so no go. I'm flying cross country this week, so rather concerned. I figure I otta be okay with two layer masks (n95 under surgical).

    I find if I tie a knot in the ear straps (on a surgical mask) into an open hook, slipped on to my eye glasses arms prevents irritation behind ears for extended wear. :brb:

    Duke University Face Masks Study: Which Work the Best?

    The study found that the most effective mask when it comes to reducing the transmission of respiratory droplets was the professionally fitted, non-valved N95. Three-layer surgical masks and cotton masks were quite effective as well. Surprisingly, a few masks were found to be quite ineffective, specifically folded bandanas and knitted masks. Valved N95 masks also “decrease protection of persons surrounding the wearer” because of “the exhalation valve, which opens for strong outwards airflow.”

    Our governor said if you don't have a mask, you can use a bike helmet. Ha!

    We should be happy that the World has now moved from whether to wear Masks or not to debating as to what kind of Masks are better to wear, I believe that that's a big improvement in people's mindsets and attitude.

    IMO

    I'm sitting in an airport surrounded by a sea of masks. Interesting to see the plethora of designs. Last time I flew in March, I was only one of two passengers that I saw with a mask on. People looked at me very strangely then, and now it's mandatory on flights.
