During early Eastern Standard Time hours, today, the Wall Street Journal’s John D. McKinnon wrote Pentagon Weighs Ending JEDI Cloud Project Amid Amazon Court Fight ( link ).

Dumont released the IEEE SPECTRUM article How Control Theory Can Help Us Control COVID-19 ( link ). Stewart, et. al. wrote, “As we write these words, several billion people, the majority of the world’s population, are confined to their homes or subject to physical-distancing policies in an attempt to contain on of the worst pandemics of modern times” (Stewart, Heusden, Dumont, 17 Apr, 2020). This is a reflection against the COVID-19 pandemic’s recorded measures. The Reproduction Number of COVID-19 Against other recent disease outbreaks, Stewart, et. al. wrote that the COVID-19 pandemic is unique: the reproduction number, or Ro (“R naught”), that is, the infection rate per infected person during infection. The Cost of Easing Social-Distancing Restrictions About easing social-distancing standardization, Stewart, et. al. wrote a commonly cited
