Return to college campuses triggers warnings over Covid-19's spread, financial motives
New research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention throws cold water on the notion that big colleges and universities can contain the coronavirus' spread on campus and the communities where they reside, raising an important question: Why are so many schools so gung ho when it comes to bringing students back for the spring semester?

The U.S. Fumbled Its Early Vaccine Rollout. Will the Biden Administration Put America Back on Track?
On a frigid morning in January, Trudy Ronnel settled into her favorite sofa chair at the Westminster Place senior-living community in Evanston, Ill., pulled down the neckline on her red blouse and braced herself for a shot she’d anticipated for almost a year.
