Photos of Richart Ruddie

Few random photos to upload of myself (Richart Ruddie) ranging from volunteering at an orphanage in Costa Rica feeding hungry children who were delighted to have visitors and to play soccer and try out flappy bird on an iPhone.

Other miscellanous photos of family, friends in Las Vegas and California, a Cat, and screenshot from that time I was on a DJ radio station as the top donor for the fan giveaway with Jauz, Alison Wonderland, and in another DJ show I would be on the same show as Eric Prydz.

What is Prurient Sexual Nature

Looking at the disaster relief package and seeing that it heavily emphasizes something called: "prurient sexual nature" and now you're wondering what the heck is Prurient Sexual Nature and what does that mean?

Prurient is defined as: "
having or encouraging an excessive interest in sexual matters." So strip clubs, pornography related businesses, and sex workers are absolutely excluded from getting that disaster relief that the other industries are in need of.

Will Coronavirus Actually Save Lives because of less road activity?

Last year in the world there were approximately1.25 million traffic deaths globally according to the World Health Organizations latest stats (2013

In the world the number one cause of death among youngsters 15-29 years of age is car crashes. With the Coronavirus in full force locking down the world and emptying the roads I am eager to look at the data in 2021 or 2022 when it's available and measure the total road deaths vs. previous years and then calculate if more lives were saved because of inactivity during COVID-19 vs. people going out and living.

While COVID-19 is currently the 3rd leading cause of death in the country Heart Disease and Cancer are still far outpacing this and we should shift focus (not right now) to resolving these causes of death of which many are preventable (90% I believe the number is).

Overall the question we can look back at and ask is Was less activity creating less deaths even with the increase in COVID-19 deaths? Approximately 101 people die in the USA a day on the road. What is that number going to be for April 2020 the month the USA took a pause.
