I wasn't sure if the Coffee Corner was the appropriate place for this but here it is, https://www.gallery.ca/collection/search-the-collection?f%5B0%5D=field_object_medium%3A4787.

This is a link to the Photography Search page of the National Gallery of Canada. You can simply browse all photos or search by photographer name or time period, etc.. You can also search by medium, painting, print, sculpture, etc., but I to picked photography as a starting point. Site navigation is straightforward.

They have announced that in the following weeks (months) they will be releasing digital content based on their collection, which is large. If you keep checking the web site, they will make announcements if and when.

I think many museums around the world are doing something similar.

On france24.com they mentioned that you can now get into the same seat as the film critics, and get access to a massive list of movie shorts for free. Unfortunately, I forgot to make a note of the name of the organisation and haven't the patience to look because I'm tired and want to go to bed. I also have a pain in my left eye, and as I had both eyes done for cataracts in August, there should not be a problem today. Frankly, I'm kinda sick of the entire business: Corinna, my eye, my stomach echo-sound test that will probably not come any time soon because everything is on the back burner everywhere because of Dame Corrie. It all fucking sucks. I watched the daily Brit govt. spiel earlier today and marvelled at the total bullshit that spews forth from the triumvirate at the lecterns: they speak with such political conviction that they will get this job done, that they are ahead of the curve, and that all that's needed is tumbling off the production lines as they speak. And incessant praise for the medical world, the shopkeepers, everybody including his wife. Of course those medics deserve praise, but the daily praise is now the daily distraction, the look on the bright side of life shtick. Crap. They are putting champagne corks in the holes of the Titanic. And over here in cyberland we still get Trumpista excuses for the same shit the rest of the world wasn't prepared to handle, but it ain't his fault, no way no how, just an accident of timing that it was on his watch. Never thought a common, grasping politico would become a god.

There were news conferences where medical experts came on right after Trump and corrected his fabrications. I saw those conferences live...nothing to do with your instance about fake news.

It's such BS that Trump did not know anything about this virus back in February. He had all his medical experts providing every piece of information he needed to make the right decision...but instead he came onto nation TV and played down the virus as if it was the common cold. South Korea was under major attack in February and took action...was Trump busy watching the three stooges on TV rather than taking notice of what was happening.

There is zero excuse for this major blunder that will cause many thousands of deaths that could have been prevented if there was someone with intelligence at the head of the helm.

Everyone down played the virus too. 

If you disagree, please post one article from any news organization pre-March where anyone in power was suggesting we take it as serious as we are right now.  Please provide me one article on some politician back in February was calling for a national shut down of the economy and other measures we have put in place since Italy. 

Just one.  Give me one politician who took this seriously in February and was calling for major action like we have taken.

Just keep on pushing that narrative man and ignore the fact that no one actually prepared for this.  Not a single government in the West took this seriously until Italy happened.  Some got lucky; some countries are so far north it gets dark at 2:30 PM in the winter and no one wants to travel there because of it.  But that does not mean they took any more seriously. 

You can say that Trump handled this poorly, but the fact is, considering how the Dems were talking about this back in January and February, they would have screwed the pooch just as bad.  Since the House is a co-equal branch, you can argue they are just as much at fault.

That's the Trump way, blame everyone else except that person staring back at you in the mirror.

"We only have a few cases"

"We got it under control"

"It will go away like the regular flu"

"We'll be done by Easter"

Not exact words...but you get the drift. And the beat goes on.

"It will be a great victory if only 100,000 people die"

How the hell can anyone defend this bozo?

LOL Bernard, singing the same old song.  It's all Trump's fault.  Do you ever get any new material? 

Fact is, everyone was caught by surprise by this, every single person with the exception of (in my country) Tom Cotton and the governor of CT.  Tom Cotton, a republican, actually held a Senate meeting on the virus and its potential effect in the beginning of January and only republicans showed up, albeit not all of them.  All the dems accused him of trying to divert attention away from impeachment. 

But even outside the USA, there is not one country in the West that foresaw this prior to Italy making it blatantly obvious. 

So there is plenty of blame to go around on both sides. 

And if this scientific data was really all over the place back in February, please send me the articles.  Vox (left wing new site), the NYTs, Washington Post and every other news media all down played this up until March.  No one was calling for any serious actions anywhere; De Blasio was telling New Yorkers to continue living their lives as normal. 

The real reason for this screw up is China. 

All western models that were developed on this virus were based on the data coming out of China, which was purposely inaccurate.  Dr. Deborah Birx even commented on this during a recent press briefing.  It was this deceiving data, from both China and WHO (which the Japanese PM just said WHO should be renamed the Chinese Health Organization) that lead many to have false models and not take it seriously enough.  I believe Birx said the data made it look more like SARs, which did not have a high transmission rate and why it was not originally taken seriously.

I have read only a part of this thread but I am surprised by the lack of deeper questioning of the deeply rooted mindsets of the Trump industry and, more broadly speaking, the right winged Republicans/religious groups.

But what has happened in the last month with the corona is just an accelerated version of whatís going to happen on broader subjects such as climate change or the removal of democratic control in the US.

The core issue is a refusal of facts and truth in favor of a romanticized version based on wishful thinking, lack of empathy and selfishness.

Trump and his supporters ignored all the scientific data brought to them and was attempting to align facts with his wicked theoretical views of the world. The reality came back to bite him big time confirming that science was right, that the focus on economy kills, that those actually suffering are the poor elderly people... yes the core Trump electorate.

And guess what, the exact same thing is going to happen for climate change and the slow but clear undemocratization of the US.

As a final comment, watching Fox news litterally kills these days. Stop watching it for your own good. Itís time to head back towards reality and away from dreamland.

Cheers,
Bernard

I might add that both Birx and Fauci are not politicians and can not be fired by Trump, so they have no reason to fluff up the story for Trump.

Then you wonder... wasnít black in swapping just a way to sell more ink and waste ink tanks?

Cheers,
