What To Consider Before You Start “Quaranteaming” With Friends
Abby Moore
April 25, 2020 — 12:04 PM
There’s no question that many people miss spending time with friends and family. And let’s face it, many people are probably sick of seeing their roommates or family members who live with them. As a solution to both cases, some people are choosing to move in with people outside of their normal household. The term has been dubbed “quaranteaming,” and though it may be fun, is it safe?

What to Consider Before You Try ‘Quaranteaming’
Written by Brian Krans on May 7, 2020 —
. As shelter-in-place orders continue in many states, some people are giving up their isolation to join a “quaranteam.”
. A quaranteam is a bubble of people who create their own tight-knit social circle that doesn’t interact with others outside their group.

6 Pandemic Portmanteaus (Electric Mile)
Feb 5, 2021
Palm Springs Linguist
Visit Insomniac’s Electric Mile while counting down 6 pandemic portmanteau words.  Many new words have been coined to discuss the COVID-19 pandemic including several frankenwords.  Learn some of the most popular portmanteaus including a killer one in Spanish!  Think of the Electric Mile as a drive through combination of Disney’s Electrical Parade and a 1990’s rave.  Who says you can’t have fun and still social distance?
