The AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science--"triple A S") annual meeting is this week. I just watched Anthony Fauci give a talk (nothing too new; just recapping the various studies) followed by a Q&A with science journalist Jon Cohen. But first, Jon Cohen's 91-year-old mom Esther wanted to ask Fauci if she can play mahjong with her friends now that she's vaccinated.
At the end, she said, "I love you!" And Fauci responded, "I love you, too!"

"Advocacy groups in Black and Hispanic communities see advantages in joining forces with largely white and low-income communities in the Appalachian region, which includes West Virginia and about a dozen other states stretching from New York’s southern tier to Alabama."
"And an imagined split between lower-wealth white communities and communities of color is a narrative embraced by polluting industries including coal mining operations and coal-fired power plants, said Mustafa Ali, who headed the EPA’s environmental justice office. Ali and other advocates argue that such a split was an attempt to dilute the combined political power of both communities.
Ali, who now heads the National Wildlife Federation’s environmental justice efforts, said Appalachian communities need assurances amid increasing calls for moving the U.S. away from fossil fuels toward renewable energy."
