Many months after racial justice protests swept across New York City & videos showed police punching, kicking & trapping demonstrators, the agency that investigates abuse revealed how many officers have so far faced serious disciplinary charges: Two. https://t.co/s7v0qmdmtv

“30 years later and nothing has changed.” The killing of George Floyd set off a reckoning over race and policing in America — but the outrage is not new. We watched Derek Chauvin’s trial with the families of Rodney King, Oscar Grant and Stephon Clark. https://t.co/ByjfdKK8Yb

After reaching 95 percent vaccination rates, the Blackfeet Nation is opening its reservation for the tourism season. Good news for Bf businesses who haven’t opened since summer 2019. How the virus affected seasonal business owners. My latest for @nytimes. https://t.co/OeMbExhjFA

NEW: Three years ago, Boulder banned assault weapons. Earlier this month, a judge overturned the ruling. “My heart is broken,” said former Boulder city council member Jill Adler Grano. “We tried so hard to prevent this from happening, yet here we are." https://t.co/1mXtkA6Lng

https://t.co/NUyzpPcsm8 Really powerful story by @elisaslow about an assistant principal who has made it his mission to track down the students who disappeared when school went remote last spring, and the many challenges students have endured since.

NEW: I spent months reporting on the death of Antonio Tsialas, a freshman at Cornell who was last seen alive at a frat party before his body was discovered at the bottom of a gorge. His phone was never found, and exactly what happened remains a mystery. https://t.co/042a7XHPVO

I thought I understood the Covid-19 death toll. Then I started spending time at an East Los Angeles funeral home with @AlexWelshPhoto. Off and on for several weeks, we watched the life of the death business at Continental Funeral Home. https://t.co/l49fBWQfbJ

CALLING ALL VACCINATED SENIORS (and their grandchildren on this site) I'd like to hear from you: How has being vaccinated changed your daily life? If you live in a multigenerational household, how has it changed the family dynamic? Write to me at sarah.mervosh@nytimes.com

“There’s a part of me that’s really excited that he’s back in school,” said one Chicago parent of her son, who returned to the classroom this week. But she was still concerned about safety, and how much longer the pandemic would continue. https://t.co/8Ke8VfQn80

The tiny @MalheurNews in a rural Oregon had 4 paid interns last year and will soon recruit for one remaining slot this summer. If unpaid seems your only choice, reach out to me. You could get a great gig - that pays. #Localjournalism

Residentes de la ciudad de Del Río, en Texas, se han sentido apartados de los centros de poder desde hace tiempo. Y la tormenta hizo que muchas personas se sintieran todavía más aisladas y olvidadas. Mi artículo sobre esta comunidad fronteriza, en Español: https://t.co/LQQsu6pm3i

ICYMI: Many Texans are facing skyrocketing electric bills. Scott Willoughby's lights stayed on during the storm. Now the Army veteran is facing a $16,752 bill. “My savings is gone,” he told us. There’s nothing I can do about it, but it’s broken me.” https://t.co/s9ReVirEmu

Each death has left an empty space in communities across America: a bar stool where a regular used to sit, one side of a bed unslept in, a home kitchen without its cook. This story by @juliebosman is about how these losses are felt by family, friends and communities left behind.

https://t.co/GaNUseypb3 We have nearly reached 500,000 deaths from Covid-19 in just one year. No other country has counted so many deaths in the pandemic. More Americans have perished from Covid-19 than on the battlefields of World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combined

I had the great honor and privilege of visiting a nursing home in Wheeling, WV, post-vaccination. For the first time in a year, my heart felt lighter. Allow me to introduce you to Betty Lou, Sally, "Father Joe" and Zita... 1/ https://t.co/Un8LuxAC7f
