Why has opposition to Covid measures become more of a conservative cause?

Covid measures have impacted everyone, regardless of politics. But a noticeable trend throughout this event has been that the opposition to Covid measures has been more pronounced among right leaning populations and politicians around the world, especially in the US. I would like to get some insight into why this particular stance has been adopted by conservative and right leaning populations?

ELI5: We measure space objects speed in relation to earth. But since earth is also moving through space, how do we know the true speed of objects without a universal "non moving" point?

The speed of an object is measure relative to the observer. But since all objects are moving in relation to all objects, how can we know the true speeds of things? Wouldnt two observers on different planets measuring an object in space come up with different answers?

[Rant] Getting sick and tired of the media encouraging and fostering a lack of understanding for safety measures.

Check this headline: https://www.hln.be/binnenland/kinderen-moeten-plots-kiezen-tussen-hun-hobby-s-ik-snap-het-niet-ik-zit-alleen-in-de-gitaarles~a96565ea/

>Kinderen moeten plots kiezen tussen hun hobby’s: β€œIk snap het niet, ik zit alleen in de gitaarles”

Phrasing, the manner of presentation, has an effect on the message. You can hide behind plausible deniability all you want, that doesn't change the fact that large masses of people are already expecting to hate it all and the way this is phrased feeds right into that.

"plots", "suddenly", implying inconsistency, rushed decisions and therefore unprepared work, and arbitrariness.

"ik snap het niet", "I don't understand", furthering the idea that the measure makes no sense, playing into the arbitrariness. Also furthering the idea that they weren't worked out properly.

The case in question being an edge case, yet presented front and center, and used to cast confusion upon the entire system.

Or that VTM interview I was unfortunate enough to have observed as it happened, the reporter asking the minister "doet u de kinderen nu geen hartverscheurende keuze aan?".

Holy shit, "hartverscheurend". Tons of people going to focus on that and not on how necessary these measures are.

The whole point of this is that people who go to multiple hobbies are then in groups that they're mostly only related to during that 1 instance. If 1 person in that group has it, you now have it. If you then visit more groups, now all of them have it. And repeat that for each person in each group, and the groups that they visit that you're not in. This is exponential.

This will slow the spread of the virus, but here's the media with tearjerker stories and messages phrased in ways that, even in the most positive interpretation, put emphasis not on slowing the virus, but on how bad it makes it feel and how the decision in question should be interpreted as arbitrary and rushed.

Completely ignoring the virus that has killed over 20000 people in Belgium alone. Over 2 million worldwide.

No, let's talk about how decisions, intended to protect us all, as hospitalization and infection numbers are rising again btw, make us feel bad. As if the virus doesn't exist.

The manner in which this all gets reported, the specific wording of the questions that get asked, the specific concerns that get their chance in the spotlight vs the ones that don't... these are all consistently feeding into the beliefs of a very specific group of people

Save your relationship, get a metric tape measure

This metric tape measure will save your relationship. Does your significant other want a picture hung EXACTLY in the center? Measure it out and divide by two!

Even if you don't know the metric system, it doesn't matter. The units are all in a logical base-10 which is what we all know which makes it easy to do math on. No messing with trying to do math on fractions. It is a lot faster to divide 848 by two, then make a mark at 424....rather than try and and figure out what half of what 71 9/16th is.

It gets even worse when you need to divide by 3 or greater.

This really reduces the stress (and arguments) when trying to evenly space out objects or calculate distances that involve a lot of math. I don't use it for cutting wood or anything, but it saves me a lot of time when I need to mark out evenly spaced points on something.

I had to buy mine off Amazon...nobody seems to carry them anywhere in town.

Niantic need to introduce better measures for countries in Lockdown

The current COVID bonus's are not sufficient to play Pokemon Go when you consider the types of events they are pushing in game, and the lockdown rules.

There are countries, such as the UK in a full national lockdown.

There are a few easy things they could do to improve this;

  • Uniform increased spawns everywhere
  • Increase gym/pokestop interaction range to anything visible on the map
  • Add a limited "drone" feature as they have done in Ingress to allow players to virtually travel a limited distance for a limited time.
  • Delay events such as Community Days and Kanto event until after lockdown has finished.

Some people will claim the above isn't necessary because Pokemon Go can be classed as a form of exercise.

Firstly, though I agree with that it is, police have already issued fines in places around the world for playing Pokemon Go during lockdown.

Second, COVID rules prevent play other than your local area:

  • "Exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area."

  • "If you do leave home for a permitted reason, you should always stay local in the village, town, or part of the city where you live. You may leave your local area for a legally permitted reason, such as for work."

Source

During events such as community day, kanto event, etc, it is extremely commonplace to see people leave their local area and travel to their nearest town or city centre due to the increased amounts of spawns and stops.

This is directly in violation of COVID rules, and increases risk to other people and strain on health services.

Niantic have the power to reduce the spread, it's time they acted appropriately.

Edit There's a lot of comments about how postponing events would be unfair on countries unaffected. My proposition is the events would only be postponed in countries affected by national lockdown. Niantic has done this historically due to bad weather - example here and here
