General Meetings
 


SHEERPOWER

We will quickly cover Sheerpower basics—and then a few fun uses  with spreadsheets and text files.

PANDEMICS: THEN AND NOW

August 6, 2020 @ 7 pm

Remote attendance via Zoom video conference (no meeting at Keller Williams).



Plan now to attend!

Plagues have infected humans from their beginning. The 1918 influenza outbreak stands out as the largest killer of humans in history, killing 50 million people around the world.

What made this virus so virulent? How did it spread so widely even before the advent of commercial air travel? How do these pandemics originate and why do they eventually disappear?

In this presentation by Murray Perl, we take a close look at the 1918 pandemic and compare it to our current pandemic. What did we learn from that outbreak,and just as important, what did we fail to learn from the 1918 outbreak?


For further information, email our program chair at
programs@wpcug.org
