For today I’m not calling your attention to a specific article but to an online source that I think is worth following.
It’s The Conversation and it is a compendium of research papers from authors at various universities. In the posting on Jan. 16, the subjects range from Covid-19, to white supremacists, to the rollout of the polio vaccine.
Briefly, The Conversation is a nonprofit, independent news organization dedicated to unlocking the knowledge of experts for the public good. “We publish trustworthy and informative articles written by academic experts for the general public and edited by our team of journalists.”
Here are some of its current articles:
- Does reopening schools cause COVID-19 to spread? It’s complicated
- The great polio vaccine mess and the lessons it holds about federal coordination for today’s COVID-19 vaccination effort
- What is the ‘boogaloo’ and who are the rioters who stormed the Capitol? 5 essential reads
- Cities can help migrating birds on their way by planting more trees and turning lights off at night
