GoDaddy Q&A with Corona Mamas founder Erin King-Mullins

Soon after experiencing the traumatic birth of her daughter in February, Dr. Erin King-Mullins, a colorectal surgeon in Atlanta, Georgia, faced the coronavirus pandemic and sheltering-in-place. The anxieties and stressors associated with this prompted her to search for support and resources. She didn’t find what she was looking for, so she created her own — Corona Mamas.

During this time, the many disparities in the Black community were magnified and then topped off by significant social unrest. As a Black woman, she sees racism as much of a public health problem as COVID-19 and wanted to address both public health issues through her interviews and blog posts on her website.

Corona Mamas serves as a community for moms of all kinds to have a place of refuge during the pandemic and time of social unrest.

Can a Car Battery Go Dead from Sitting?

Nowadays, your car is probably staying parked in your garage for longer periods of time. While this can be nice for saving money on gas and other maintenance, it’s not an ideal situation for your car’s battery.

This leads to an important question: Can a car battery go dead from sitting? Yes, it can.
