OH GOD EVEN WITH THE BEST OF INTENTIONS ANY SET OF RULES COMING FROM 24 HOURS OF THOUGHT IS GOING TO BE AN ABSOLUTE SHITSHOW IN PRACTICE
PSA: cloth and paper masks worn to help prevent spread of Coronavirus (and other diseases) do not need to form a seal to be effective.
They do two things:
a. capture most of the droplets you exhale/cough/sneeze out
b. slow down (and thus reduce the range of) any droplets not caught
If you have two layers of fabric covering your nose and mouth, you are wearing a fabric mask correctly.
If breath reflects off of them and escapes around the edges, that is just fine -- the bulk of the droplets were caught, and those few that leave around the edges are slowed a ton. Mission accomplished.
Misinformation on this point (most of which seems to be repeating proper fit and donning for PPE masks, which do need to form a seal) is leading people to not wear masks because they believe they are difficult or impossible to wear correctly.

That's a good question!
The first big vuln with a name and logo was heartbleed. This made it easier to sell to news media, which in turn made patching easier to sell to executives.
The name and the logo make the vulnerability seem serious. Unfortunately, after the first one that does this, now managers won't authorize a maintenance window for any bug that doesn't.
So now every bug needs marketing.
The "quantum" marketing hype machine is here.
An upcoming Samsung phone is reportedly using "entropy from a quantum source" as an RNG for certain cryptographic operations. And this makes it "the first phone with quantum technology"
