Nov. 8 is the date that U.S. will begin allowing visitors into the country based on vaccination status. Visitors from Europe, Brazil and India will once again be permitted —if they are vaccinated. Unvaccinated visitors and people inoculated with certain vaccines will be banned.

California, on statewide basis, is now experiencing its worst drought in observational record going back to late 1800s--narrowly beating out peak of last drought in 2014-15 (as measured by PDSI, a metric that takes into account both precip & temperature). #CAwx #CAfire #CAwater

Japan has dammed most of its rivers & lined them with concrete. Giant concrete jacks to fight erosion dot the coastline. Now some object to villagers' push to add a concrete wall to a pristine beach. @benjamindooley

United's Covid vaccine mandate has been remarkably effective. Fewer than 250 out of ~67,000 employees had not complied as of yesterday (or <.4% for those keeping official score). @NirajC and I tell the story of how it happened.

A month ago a patient buried a grandkid that died from COVID. A week later they buried their daughter. Two weeks ago they and their spouse felt unwell after babysitting another grandchild with a "little cold." All tested +. Their spouse died last week. They died tonight.

Or, rather, after mandating vaccination, United Airlines retains more than 99% of it's workforce.
