A vaccine works by mimicking a natural infection. A vaccine not only induces immune response to protect people from any future COVID-19 infection, but also helps quickly build herd immunity to put an end to the pandemic.

A fast charge makes the cars much more appealing for consumers who are comparing it to cars that run on gas, and that can help speed the transition to electric vehicles that’s already underway. … [Read more...] about This Gates-backed startup is building a better battery for electric cars
Directors Lisa Cortés and Liz Garbus use charming animation to reenact Abrams’s story of being a high-school valedictorian briefly barred from attending an event at the Georgia governor’s mansion, because a guard thought she “didn’t belong” there. This formative experience with Georgia government helps send Abrams down a path to fierce political activism, eventually burning the Georgia state flag over its Confederate imagery (after securing a burn permit) and speaking alongside Coretta Scott King at an event in 1993 commemorating the 30-year anniversary of the March on Washington, when she was merely a college junior. … [Read more...] about ‘All In: The Fight for Democracy’ is the only documentary you need to see before this election
