Heroes & Zeros

 As of April 14, 2020, when I wrote this poem, global cases of coronavirus exceeded 1.8 million, and deaths topped 113,000.  What a difference a month made, long enough to know who the "heroes" are and to see the "zeros" starting to take advantage of the pandemic . . .  

Heroes & Zeros

Among mankind's best—
Brave, courageous
Heroes who do no harm
Assuaging our fear
With fellow feeling and care
Amidst viral strains' stealthy swarm

Among mankind's worst—
Mean, dastardly
Zeros who do know harm
Stoking pandemic fear
Scamming an unsuspecting ear
With a smiling swindler's charm

Heroes and Zeros
Best and worst of mankind—

What a dichotomy!
We'll keep hoping instead
For a bright future ahead
Daily coping with anxiety

  2. There are hordes of low-cost 3D printers within the $160-$300 vary. Most aren’t that reliable, and we recommend sticking with FDM Men's Boxers kits like the Ender 3 vary, Anycubic entry-level printers, and Elegoo or Anycubic resin printers for lower price printers that really work nicely. If you wish to print multi-color parts, you'll be able to|you possibly can} improve your Prusa i3 MK3S+ with Prusa’s multi-material improve 2.0 equipment, allowing you to print 5 colours or materials simultaneously, for $300.
