Your Thursday Briefing – The New York Instances
One million Americans have died of Covid-19
The US did something horrible on Wednesday, beating 250,000 coronavirus-related deaths, more than any other country in the world. That figure is expected to continue at an alarming rate, with experts predicting that every day 2,000 or more people will die.
There have been more than 11.5 million cases in the country, up from 6.9 million on September 22, according to the New York Times.
Health experts have cited the lack of psychiatry as the main cause of many problems in the country. Instead, state and federal agencies are being set up to address the HIV epidemic.
There is very little silver lining: These lawsuits support testing of a vaccine that can reduce the epidemic and have allowed manufacturers of Pfizer and Moderna products to speed up testing their vaccines, which appear to be effective in preventing Covid-19.
Boris Johnson ‘Green Industrial Revolution’
Britain on Wednesday took steps to address some of the country’s remaining remaining greenhouse gas emissions, announcing plans to end the sale of new gas and diesel cars within a decade and improve the way people heat their homes.
This could represent Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s efforts to force other countries to reduce their air pollution in preparation for next year’s climate summit in Britain. He could also highlight the causes for Britain and the US, as Johnson prepares for Biden’s upcoming management.
Climate experts have said it is a key part of Britain’s defense of the world since it decided to use coal five years ago, but doubted whether the amount would be enough.
Burning effects: A massive volcanic eruption burned oil and coal in Siberia, resulting in the destruction of the Permian-Triassic “Great Dying” conference, scientists have found.
Somalia fears relocation of US troops
Highly trained American troops could fall if President Trump withdraws U.S. troops from Somalia, as they should, leaving the country at risk of Shabab and other terrorist groups.
Following the Pentagon’s announcement on Tuesday that the US would reduce the number of troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, the defense secretary is expected to approve plans to eliminate, if not all, of the more than 700 American soldiers from Somalia engaged in criminal activities. .
Fact: The U.S. military is based on training, training, and support for Somalia’s 850-strong military force. The plan could be to relocate US forces to Djibouti and Kenya, allowing the radio stations to stage protests against Shabab.
Israel strikes Syria: Israel says the protests on Wednesday were originally controlled by Iran’s targets in Syria. It took place just hours before Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his Bahraini counterpart visited to commemorate a new US-based commemoration.

Russia’s war back at the World Cup
In front of a Swiss judging panel this month, six Russian athletes requested: Please do not punish us for what we did not do. Above, the 2018 Fifth Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Russia was banned from the race but its flag still hoisted.
In a bid to stop Russia from banning the four-year ban from the world of drugs, Russia placed its athletes as a player. If the state manages to curb its own sanctions, efforts to provide for fraudulent schemes will appear to have failed.
Here are some of them
Philippines floods: In the past two weeks, torrential rains have killed at least 70 people, leaving many towns in the Cagayan region under water.
The refugee problem: Greek authorities have blamed an Afghan man for the death of his 6-year-old son as they tried to reach the country by sea. Human rights groups say the move sets an alarming example and is one way to prevent migrants from moving to another country.
Birmingham bombing: Police have arrested a man in Northern Ireland over a bomb blast at two restaurants in England about 50 years ago, killing 21 people.
Boeing: On Wednesday, the Federal Aviation Administration devised a way for the 737 Max to resume flying, 20 months after it was suspended after two fatal crashes were hit by malicious programs and a proliferation of companies and governments.
Image: Armenian villagers paint a burning house before leaving Kelbajar, Azerbaijan, above. Posting from the Nagorno-Karabakh region, our correspondent describes the turmoil in which Armenians are fleeing what they see as their former homeland.
European perfumes: The project was announced this week and EU-funded funding will fund and restore European spices, surprisingly, from the 16th century to the early 20th century.
Souls of Life: British author Jill Paton Walsh, whose book “Knowledge of Angels” claims to be the first self-published book to be nominated for a Booker Award, has died at the age of 83.
What we read: This Grub Street leads to lox sherpa in New York City. Adam Pasick, an editor in our correspondence, described it as “a very sad story.”

Great week at our Book Group
As the release of Barack Obama’s commemoration of the “Promised Land,” the National Book Awards and Booker Prize, published and released in The Times ‘annual edition of Notable Books, our writers and critics at the Books’ desk are in high esteem this week or two. Pamela Paul, editor of The Book Review, and Andrew LaVallee, deputy editor at the desk, spoke of this difficult time.
How is it doing all over the world this year?
Andrew: It’s been crazy. We discuss the business and culture of the publishing world, which has been battling the epidemic, as well as the interest and courage in diversity and racial issues.
Pamela: This politics has also had a profound effect on books, with a return to the book “Fire and Fury” written by Michael Wolff in 2018. There have been many books published in Washington. This year alone we had the books of John Bolton, Bob Woodward and Mary Trump.
How long have you been working to make lists?
Pamela: All 100 Honorary Books and 10 Best Books are systems of all ages. The editors of Book Review begin meeting as a team in January, and then by August we have an hour and a half meetings in a few weeks to get the fighters back. Then we make the final decision with a vote that usually goes to the runoff, which it did this year.
Is there no competition this year?
Pamela: As for the whole culture, the books are doing well, really. Unlike the movie, theater and TV, this book is not confined to the middle. Most books changed their printing dates, but most came out this year as planned, soon after.
Are there clear targets?
Pamela: There has not been much crossover between the short and long lists that have emerged in some organizations so far. There has been only one book on the Booker Prize list and the final National Book Award, which is “Shuggie Bain” by Douglas Stuart. It does not make sense if there is a connector around one head.
Thanks for being your part this morning with The Times. Until tomorrow.
