If you’re inclined to order a big dish of beef chow mein, everyone understands the compulsion.
If you hear him howling around your kitchen door, better not let him in. Just a cautionary note. And if you order a pina colada at Trader Vic’s, be advised that it’s a gay bar. If somebody offers to push your stool in at the bar, reject the offer – word to the wise.

Will the FBI PROTECT the US?
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued a joint warning to the public on Wednesday about Chinese hackers targeting organizations researching coronavirus.
The warning calls out Chinese state-affiliated hackers who were “observed attempting to identify and illicitly obtain valuable intellectual property (IP) and public health data related to vaccines, treatments, and testing from networks and personnel affiliated with COVID-19-related research.”
“The potential theft of this information jeopardizes the delivery of secure, effective, and efficient treatment options,” the warning added.
The agencies called on U.S. organizations to expect increases in cyber activity, and recommended those organizations strengthen cybersecurity measures and resolve vulnerabilities for their networks, as well as actively scan and monitor systems for unauthorized activities.
“Health care, pharmaceutical, and research sectors working on COVID-19 response should all be aware they are the prime targets of this activity and take the necessary steps to protect their systems,” said an additional FBI statement.
