In order to overcome the fear, says the Immigration Coalition’s Hadler, local governments will also need to put into place “well-funded and well-thought-out public education and outreach campaigns” to counteract any negative concerns. And that messaging should be “culturally and linguistically competent,” Yu says, because language is often another barrier. Some states and cities have been better than others at addressing this: Washington State, which is also promising not to release identifiable data, has produced vaccine education materials in 37 languages. Philadelphia has been doing targeted outreach in ethnic media, including in Spanish, Russian, Chinese, and Korean outlets, according to James Garrow, a spokesperson from the city’s department of health. That sanctuary city is also working with its local FQHCs to spread the word. … [Read more...] about How will undocumented immigrants get the COVID-19 vaccine?

Already, Biden has said that he will open up vaccinations to more people, ramp up production of more vaccines, and withhold a small number of doses to ensure that people can get a second dose within the prescribed time period. The president also wants to increase the number of places where people can receive vaccines to include community health centers, mobile health units, pharmacies, and other locations like stadiums and school gymnasiums. He plans to erect a giant workforce of vaccinators using retired health workers, the national guard, military medical personnel, and first responders. … [Read more...] about Biden has inherited the worst health crisis in memory. Can he turn it around?
To get the boost in drive that autonomy provides, you need the freedom to control your sleep, work, and exercise schedule. You also need the autonomy to chase flow via an activity of your own choosing on a regular basis. Ideally, your work time will be devoted to activities that further your purpose, and the flow-producing activity is similar to surfing—meaning it’s actually a break from work. If this isn’t possible in your life today, start with the 3M plan: Devote 15% of your time to a project that aligns with your core passion and purpose. Fifteen percent is about an afternoon a week, though you can easily split this into a pair of two-and-a-half-hour blocks and get similar results. … [Read more...] about Why a free afternoon each week can boost employees’ sense of autonomy
Most instances of untitling are not as deliberate as the one in the Wall Street Journal op-ed but can be just as damaging. As Professor Claire Hopkins pointed out, omitting titles when introducing women is “a subtle form of unconscious bias that may appear trivial, but can adversely affect their perceived authority.” Professor Hopkins described being introduced as “Claire” in front of a 2,000-person debate audience, while her male opponent was introduced as “Professor Blogs.” In another example, Dr. Susan Fong, who holds two doctoral degrees—M.D. and Ph.D.—was mistakenly referred to as “Ms. Fong” in an article in a physicians’ magazine for which she was the lead author. Her male coauthor was referred to correctly as “Dr. Kossoff.” Similarly, female professors report that students address them using their first name or as “Miss/Ms./Mrs. Lastname,” even when these professors have introduced … [Read more...] about We need to stop ‘untitling’ and ‘uncredentialing’ professional women
The easiest way to find out if you’re getting a payment by mail is to check the IRS Get My Payment Tool, which should provide a scheduled date. If you check the tool and see the message “Payment Status Not Available,” that could indicate that you’re not receiving a payment, either because the IRS doesn’t have enough information or hasn’t finished processing your 2019 returns. (It could also mean that you were never eligible to receive a stimulus payment in the first place. Eligible taxpayers should receive separate letters in the mail, “IRS Notice 1444” and “IRS Notice 1444-B,” notifying them of their eligibility and how much they’re due to receive.) … [Read more...] about IRS stimulus check still not received?
