Cowering in the bathroom: Some Afghans dread the Taliban knock at the door

Kudos to Charlotte Greenfield (Stabile ‘14) who has been reporting in the tumult in Afghanistan. Her latest story is on the families hiding from the Taliban. https://t.co/q4WrruywH7

When armed members of the Afghan Taliban knocked on the door of their Kabul apartment, the family of 16 inside had crammed into the bathroom, turned off the lights and mobile phones and covered the children's mouths to keep them quiet.

Heat Is Killing Workers In The U.S. — And There Are No Federal Rules To Protect Them

Great work by Brian Edwards and Scooty Nickerson (Stabile '20), who were part of a Columbia Journalism Investigations team that revealed rising numbers of deaths from environmental heat exposure.

Heat has killed hundreds of workers in the U.S., many in construction or agriculture, an investigation by NPR and Columbia Journalism Investigations found. Federal standards might have prevented them.

How much do mass vaccine clinics cost to run? Up to $400,000 a day

Using records obtained through FOI, Kyra Anne Senese (Stabile '20) found out how much it costs to run vaccine centers, about $400,000 a day in some cases. Her story was on Page One of the Chicago Sun-Times and is part of the Documenting Covid-19 project led by Derek Kravitz ('13).

While smaller sites can cost less to run, it can be exceedingly expensive, on a per-shot basis, to vaccinate those in more rural or underserved areas of the country.

Would like to receive last two articles on healthcare costs by Carolyn Johnson in the Washington Post for my suggested national plan. Allen Brodsky, Sc.D. [email protected]. Please help if you can.
Random acts of Islamic terrorism have now captured the world’s attention. “The Killing Rituals”, Amazon’s # 1 bestselling political thriller authored by a former Israeli Secret Service agent, will take you to where it all started. Back in the 80’s, in*******al romance was perceived as science fiction, international terrorism was a prelude to Al-Kaeada and ISIS, setting the stage for what has become the 21ST Century’s violent nightmare; and the two Superpowers were still engaged in the Cold War Tango. Based on true events this authentic political thriller provides you with a realistic rendition of the people and strategies deployed to combat global terrorism - and the politics that drive both. A Palestinian nationalist fighting for his cause. A female African American CIA Agent who falls for her Israeli MOSSAD partner. An ex-KGB Officer pulling strings behind a Middle Eastern terrorist organization. A Scottish Coast Guard Captain manipulated by a bunch of seemingly-amateur sea-faring women he saves from a storm. And an FBI Agent duped by the defector he’s assigned to guard. These are but some of the characters you’ll get to know when you read “The Killing Rituals”, The season’s bestselling surprise hit. Written by a former Israeli Secret Service agent, this suspenseful political thriller rocks you from one corner of the world to another while painting a realistic canvas of the war between Western democracies and the complex web of international terrorism. Dear friends, “The Killing Rituals” reached # 1 Amazon Best Seller status in the “Espionage Thrillers” category – as well as # 1 in the “Mystery, Thrillers & Suspense” and the “Action & Adventure” categories! It is available in Paperback and Kindle editions. http://www.amazon.com/The-Killing-Rituals-Thrilling-Espionage/dp/9655651053/ref=pd_rhf_dp_p_img_1
