Getty Images. Vaccine nationalism is real. But so is vaccine multilateralism. When SARS-CoV-2 started spreading, the countries of the world had no vaccine plans in place. But a lot can happen in six months. Today, there are — including nine in the final phase of testing. There’s also the world’s first attempt at a global effort to ensure that, when we have a working vaccine or vaccines, all countries have access, no matter their GDP. The initiative is called , and it aims to support the development and equitable distribution of 2 billion doses of Covid-19 vaccines before the end of 2021. It’s the biggest multilateral effort since the , according to Seth Berkley, the CEO of Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, one of the partners behind Covax, along w.

Niche streaming platforms are all the rage. | Aja Romano for Vox. Crunchyroll or Funimation? Acorn or Britbox? Criterion or Mubi? Go beyond Netflix and Hulu with our guide to niche streaming platforms. As the streaming wars between major platforms like Netflix, Disney Plus, and HBO Max have expanded, so, too, has the world of smaller, more specialized streaming services. These boutique streaming platforms focus on serving a specific niche, to fans who want more than the bigger mainstream players have to offer. Since they aren’t trying to appeal to as wide an audience as possible, these boutique services can offer carefully curated selections that cater to the special interests of their viewers. But because these services also tend to fly und.

Tara Jacoby for Vox. Mail-in ballots, safe polling locations, and fraud allegations are only a few of the concerns in the pandemic election. Lettie Fickling, of Colorado, has always voted by mail, a process she says she enjoys. But with this year’s election, she’s not so sure. She’s concerned that could prevent her ballot from getting in on time. She also has fears about voting in person and potentially being exposed to . She’s still not sure how she’ll vote. “I’m having all these worries despite living in a state with some of the best voter protections, best mail-in voting infrastructure, and highest voter turnout,” Fickling told Recode. “I can’t even imagine how worried people must be in places like Texas.”Because of the pandemic, more Am.

Tara Jacoby for Vox. During a pandemic that’s made in-person campaigning a public health hazard, influencers aren’t just fun. They’re a campaign necessity. In 2016, when traditional American campaign activities like and were centerpieces of presidential campaigns, a viral post of support from a social media star would have been for candidates. Four years later, amid an ongoing , much of the electoral battleground has moved to the internet — and getting a boost from influencers on Instagram, TikTok, or YouTube is an increasingly important campaign tactic, particularly for Democrats. That’s because Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is at a digital , which is bolstered by who stand ready to amplify its messaging — misinformation and all.

Compared to center-right parties in developed democracies, the GOP is dangerously far from normal. The Republican Supreme Court power grab after Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death should be shocking, given the naked hypocrisy involved. The only reason it isn’t is that we’ve come to expect this from Republicans — and not just under Trump. Republicans and impeached President Bill Clinton over far less than what Trump has done in office. Under Obama, they , to force spending cuts, and elevated to the level of governing principle. At the state level, they have to block Democrats from voti.

Trump speaks in Ohio on Monday. | Matthew Hatcher/Getty Images. Trump’s Covid-19 rhetoric hit new heights of irresponsibility in Ohio. Instead of taking a moment to grieve the nearly 200,000 Americans who were confirmed to have died from Covid-19 as of his rally Monday evening in Swanton, Ohio, President Donald Trump erased them. “It affects virtually nobody,” Trump said of the coronavirus. “It’s an amazing thing.”By Tuesday morning, the disease had — a number more than the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican-American War, the Spanish-American War, World War I, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, the Afghanistan War, and the Iraq War combined — and “affected” even more. The president was trying to highlight how deaths.

Photo Illustration by Jakub Porzycki/NurPhoto via Getty Images. The brick-and-mortar retailer is trying to invent a digital future where it’s a leader of Amazon rather than a follower. For the past five years, nearly every one of Walmart’s big moves has seemingly had one goal: to narrow Amazon’s embarrassingly huge lead in e-commerce. From Walmart’s $3 billion acquisition of in 2016 to in 2018, as well as its recent , Amazon and its Prime membership service seemed to always be at the forefront of Walmart’s corporate mind. For the first time in a long time, though, the giant brick-and-mortar retailer is expected to make a big bet that isn’t solely about chasing the Seattle-based tech giant founded by Jeff Bezos: a multibillion-dollar investme.

A crowd on New Yorkers gathers at Washington Square Park for a candlelight vigil and memorial to mourn the loss of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. | Erik McGregor/LightRocket via Getty Images. How polarization is cracking America apart — and what to do about it. David French is a senior editor at the Dispatch, a columnist at Time, and one of the conservative commentators I read most closely. French and I have rather different politics — he’s a Christian conservative from Tennessee, and I’m a secular liberal from California — but his upcoming book, , tracks some of the same problems I’ve been obsessing over for years: political polarization and the way it’s cracking America apart. But French goes further than I do: He fears not just.

A failed government response and America’s structural disadvantages contributed to the highest coronavirus death toll in the world. The number of Americans confirmed to have died in the has now reached 200,000, according to the most authoritative public databases — a larger loss of life than many public health experts thought possible in the spring. The actual number of victims is significantly higher. The New York Times last month that from March 1 to July 25, there were about 60,000 more “excess deaths” than confirmed Covid-19 deaths in the US. That means about 60,000 more people died over that time than expected, on top of all of the r.

The president portrayed the US as a benevolent, responsible world leader — and China as the world’s aggressor. President Donald Trump used his fourth, and perhaps final, United Nations General Assembly speech to portray himself as a benevolent, responsible world leader and China as the world’s aggressor. “America is fulfilling our destiny as peacemaker,” he said in a , touting US-brokered normalization-of-relations deals between Israel and two Arab nations, ongoing talks to end the Afghanistan war, and a Serbia and Kosovo pact signed at the White House. “As we pur.

The Biden team’s planning for a hypothetical administration is already well underway. And on questions of economic policy, the transition effort is already becoming a locus of a fight about what a Democratic White House should look like. On one side stand progressives, urging the creation of something like an ideological social democratic party. They want to draw a firm line between Democrats and the business community — leaning sharply against selecting personnel who’ve spent the Trump years working in the private sector in favor of career public.

Apple. Do you miss Myspace layouts? Great news! There was a time not so long ago when buying an Apple product meant buying into a very specific aesthetic, one designed by men in glass-walled offices who liked to think of themselves as high-minded futurists. Their vision for that future was almost always the same: sleek, minimalist, and above all, simple.

A conversation with the two Black women at the center of one of America’s most important felony disenfranchisement cases. After Florida voted overwhelmingly to let 1.5 million formerly incarcerated people regain the right to vote, Rosemary McCoy and Sheila Singleton, two Black women who had completed their sentences and probation for felony convictions, cast their ballots in 2019 for the first time in years. Just months later, they lost that newfound power: In May 2019, the Republican-controlled Florida legislature, backed by Gov. Ron DeSantis, enacted Senate Bill 7066. It required that formerly incarc.

It gave me the tools I needed to understand — and reckon with — my alcoholism. The last time I drank alcohol, I was found a full day later in the trunk of a car outside of a bar called Six Packs in rainy, rural northwestern Pennsylvania. We’d traveled to the region for my best friend’s wedding and I’d relapsed the night before the ceremony, sneaking off in the middle of the night to find a beer to calm my anxiety over being back “home.” One beer turned to many, and my last coherent memory of the spree was my decision to pop into a backcountry bar whose name gave me the drunken certainty that it contained hard-stomached male strippers (reader, I was mistaken). This latest relapse meant I’d missed my best friend’s wedding. To my horror, I rea.
