Yes, the Federal Government Can Force You Into Quarantine

For many Americans stuck at home due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, the idea of being quarantined now feels strangely normal. But just a few months ago, the thought was unbelievable.

Jarred Evans, an American professional football player, was playing in a league in China when COVID-19 first broke out in Wuhan. In January, he and other Americans were flown to a military base in California, where they were forced to quarantine for weeks. Turns out, they were the first Americans to be forcibly quarantined by the federal government in more than fifty years.

“It would either be that or I guess in jail,” Evans told VICE News.

Although President Trump has not taken the step of issuing a nationwide quarantine order, the federal government does have the authority to do so. It rarely flexes the power, choosing to delegate the responsibility to state and local authorities. People subject to quarantines can challenge them in court. And in the past, many have won.

In this time of a global pandemic, VICE News looks back at government attempts to impose orders of isolation and quarantine to find instances when it was successful — and when it failed.

The Juicero Founder Is Really Into Raw Water (HBO)

Just a couple years ago, Doug Evans was making his Silicon Valley dreams come true when he raised over $120 million in venture capital for his juicer startup, Juicero. Now, after the company collapsed, he’s trying to figure out what to do next.

You might have heard of Juicero. The $700 wifi connected home juicer became the embodiment of Silicon Valley excess, and shortly after a Bloomberg story revealed you could squeeze the company’s juice packs with your hands instead of the expensive juicer, the company folded. Juicero was ridiculed for its price tag and the fact that it required a wi-fi connection to work. But Evans says the media got it all wrong, and never gave the company a chance.

Now, Evans has a new obsession: raw water. Evans garnered new scrutiny earlier this year when he announced on his Instagram that he was partaking in a five-day “raw water cleanse.” As he ponders his next gig, Evans joined VICE News to harvest raw water in Northern California.

Why pink used to be a boy’s colour and blue a girl’s

Business Insider spoke to writer, lecturer, and colour expert Gavin Evans about the reversal of pink and blue on traditional gender roles.

Mr. Evans said; “In the early part of the 20th Century and the late part of the 19th Century, in particular, there were regular comments advising mothers that if you want your boy to grow up masculine, dress him in a masculine colour like pink and if you want your girl to grow up feminine dress her in a feminine colour like blue.”

“This was advice that was very widely dispensed with and there were some reasons for this. Blue in parts of Europe, at least, had long been associated as a feminine colour because of the supposed colour of the Virgin Mary’s outfit.”

“Pink was seen as a kind of boyish version of the masculine colour red. So it gradually started to change however in the mid-20th Century and eventually by about 1950, there was a huge advertising campaign by several advertising agencies pushing pink as an exclusively feminine colour and the change came very quickly at that point.”
