South Korea has received international praise for its swift and so-far successful response to the novel COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, so it's not shocking to hear the country is as scheduled while places like the United States are postponing their own for safety reasons. Life is slowly returning to a new normal around South Korea, but the government is averse to taking any chances, and caution is expected to on display next Wednesday during voting.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will not be the next president of the United States, and that's a . Her brand of leadership is exactly what these disastrous, pandemic-afflicted times require. But while she won't be ascending to the Oval Office, it's not too late for her to lead. Former Vice President Joe Biden would be wise to do whatever it takes to sign her up for his campaign and potential administration, and give her the job of helping guide the country's recovery from the coronavirus emergency. Because it's clear she is already preparing to help build a post-pandemic future. Warren demonstrated as much Monday in a with Vox 's Ezra Klein, discussing how she would have handled the COVID-19 outbreak. , Warren issued on how to deal with th.

I've never, not for a fraction of a second, considered homeschooling my children. They both thrive at school and, as a work-from-home parent all of the time — not just during global pandemics — I need that precious alone time. Plus, my kids learn all sorts of mathematical and scientific stuff I could never even try to teach them. But now — like millions of other parents across the world — I've found myself a reluctant homeschooler. And we're not just talking about the short-term. I could probably wing it for a few days with art supplies and a little help from Beverly Cleary and J.K. Rowling. Beyond that, I really have no idea what I'm doing. I've had to take a social media hiatus because pictures of other parents' lesson plans have me in a

Most of the world outside the United States has reached the end of the beginning of the novel coronavirus pandemic. New confirmed infections and deaths have plateaued and are beginning to fall in some of the hardest-hit countries like Italy and Spain, and Germany is beginning to draw up plans for re-starting its economy. (It seems that only Brazil, with its crackpot far-right president Jair Bolsonaro, is , with perhaps the U.K. in a close second.). We're beginning to see a glimmering of what it will take to be able to restore some semblance of normal life. Countries will need to keep a "test and track" apparatus going, and they will need to be ready to reimpose lockdown measures on a moment's notice. Unfortunately, there is no sign whatsoeve.

Murder House Flip is such an obvious idea for a show that — when I finally realized it wasn't a parody — I was stunned it hadn't been done before. The premise is exactly what it sounds like: Home renovators fix up houses where people were killed. "I'm all in," Stephen Colbert said, in January. "I'll watch anything with 'murder house' in the title.". In execution — if you'll pardon the pun — Murder House Flip is the most American thing I can think of, right up there with baseball, apple pie, and asking to speak to the manager. It is exactly the right doses of tasteless and irresistible, of tacky and weirdly compelling, of attention-seeking and un-self-aware. It is also the perfect metaphor for our country, where a fresh coat of paint and a ga.

The U.S. government's massive effort to provide coronavirus relief to small businesses got off . A crucial piece of is the Paycheck Protection Program. It's roughly $350 billion in super-cheap loans which will largely be forgiven, offered to businesses with 500 employees or less, so they can continue paying rent, bills, overhead, and — most crucially — keep their workers on payroll. The idea is to both stanch and make sure America's coffee shops, restaurants, bars, retail stores, and other small businesses are actually still around to start doing business again once the quarantines sweeping the country let up. Unfortunately, passing such a gargantuan aid package is one thing; implementing it is quite another. While the loans will be offered.

There was a brief period (it may have lasted for as long as 48 hours) when Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer went from insisting that Donald Trump posed an existential threat to the United States of America to insisting that he must assume unilateral authority over the whole of the United States in order to save us from an actual existential threat: the coronavirus pandemic.

This is the terrible predicament we face as coronavirus cases worldwide top one million: In order to avoid getting infected, we have to stay at home in a mass lockdown. But if we don't go out, we won't develop the "herd immunity” — the critical mass of recovered and immune people — that can limit the virus' spread. That means the minute we unlock and venture out, we risk getting attacked again. So are we doomed to stay locked up — watching our economy go up in smoke — till a vaccine or treatment emerges, months, perhaps years, from now? Or is there a way out in the interim? There may be if mass home-testing kits become available soon. That will allow near-universal and repeat testing, Sweden-based molecular biologists Jussi Taipale and Sten.

A lot of people have urged President Trump to invoke the Defense Production Act and compel companies to manufacturer more protective gear for health care workers as they combat the novel COVID-19 coronavirus.
