WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT… TIME100 NEXT The 2021 edition of TIME100 Next in the March 1/March 8 issue drove much conversation on social media, with pundits and commenters hailing the honorees in politics, health, tech and other fields. On Twitter, Tom Steyer, 2020 presidential candidate, said the climate activists Vanessa Nakate, Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Julian Brave NoiseCat are “the future,” and actor Bradley Whitford called Harris County Judge Linda Hidalgo “an amazing public servant.” ‘Honored. Blessed. Prepared. Purposed. Next.’KIZZMEKIA CORBETT, immunologist and honoree, on Twitter In many instances, tributes to those featured were written by established trailblazers in their field. Amanda Gorman, the poet who spoke at President Joe Biden’s Inauguration, wrote that she was starstruck by the words Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote for her. “When we met [years] ago, I…

vaccines vs. viral variants

IT’S ONE THING TO TEST A VACCINE IN A controlled study, and another to see it in action in the real world. Since the first COVID-19 vaccines were approved at the end of 2020, more than 250 million people around the world have been vaccinated, and public-health experts are starting to see how the shots are faring when put to the ultimate test. That information is especially critical as new, more infectious versions of SARS-CoV-2 are starting to dominate new cases in certain countries—such as the U.K. and South Africa—raising concerns among both the public and health leaders over whether existing vaccines will work against these viral variants. So far, studies show that the vaccines are doing what they should. In two large data reviews—one conducted in Israel, where most people…

democrats can’t keep all their promises in the covid-19 relief bill

THE DEMOCRATS’ UNIFIED CONTROL OF Washington puts them within striking distance of passing President Biden’s coronavirus relief package, sending $1,400 checks to lower- and middle-income Americans, extending federal unemployment insurance until Aug. 29 and allotting nearly $130 billion to reopen K-12 schools. But it’s also notable what almost certainly won’t end up in the final bill: a $15 minimum-wage increase and a repeal of two tax breaks implemented under last year’s CARES Act that primarily benefited billionaires and millionaires. CHECKS AND BALANCES On the 2020 campaign trail, Democrats vowed to enact these policies, but that rhetoric is now meeting the reality of governing. The omissions are primarily being chalked up to procedural difficulties. Democrats voted overwhelmingly for the CARES Act last March, but aides later acknowledged that in the rush to…

why isn’t the u.s. sanctioning mohammed bin salman?

IN NEWLY DECLASSIFIED DETAIL, THE WORLD can now read why the CIA believes Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman dispatched the 15-man hit squad that killed and dismembered Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018. MBS, as the prince is known, “viewed Khashoggi as a threat to the Kingdom,” the report asserts, and “broadly supported using violent measures if necessary to silence him.” The plot, which saw Khashoggi lured to his death at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, turned MBS from a figure many hoped would modernize Saudi Arabia into an international pariah. But public shaming is where President Joe Biden’s campaign pledge to hold MBS—who denies ordering Khashoggi’s murder—accountable appears to end. On Feb. 26, his Administration announced new sanctions and travel restrictions for dozens of MBS’s alleged henchmen, but…
