After Vice President Kamala Harris received her second dose of the COVID 19 vaccine in a televised event at the National Institutes of Health in January, Rep. Joyce Beatty (D Ohio) phone lit up with calls from constituents who were “newly curious” about getting vaccinated themselves, she told The New York Times. As Beatty explained, watching a Black woman receive the vaccine “gave people hope and gave people education.” Black Americans are nearly three times more likely to die from the coronavirus, the Times notes, but they are far less likely to be inoculated, in large part because of a lack of access, but also, some experts have pointed out, because of longstanding wariness about government driven health programs.

By lowering the air pressure on your tires, you’ll get better grip on rough or soft ground and improved shock absorption, too. Airing down is easy enough just press the tire’s valve stem and use a tire gauge to hit the right pressure but airing back up is a little more complicated. Watson uses a powerful all in one compressor from ARB with his truck.
Scientists say that while people who remain obese from childhood into adulthood were most at risk of dying, modest weight gains throughout a lifespan can increase the “probability of survival”. Experts said individuals who put on weight in later life often lived longer than those who remained trim. The findings were made following a study based on two generations of Americans followed over nearly seven decades.
Smashed Russian and European spacecraft litter the Martian landscape, meanwhile, along with NASA’s failed Mars Polar Lander from 1999. Getting into orbit around Mars is less complicated, but still no easy matter, with about a dozen spacecraft falling short. Mars fly bys were the rage in the 1960s and most failed; NASA’s Mariner 4 was the first to succeed in 1965.
