President Donald Trump said last week that a vaccine would be available before the end of this year. His prediction was supported by Moncef Slaoui, the newly appointed leader of Operation Warp Speed, the administration effort to speed vaccine development. At a briefing last week, Slaoui, a former member of Moderna board of directors who resigned when he took up his new government post, said he had seen preliminary research data that convinced him that a vaccine could be created by the end of the year.
Jon SnowOne of the main characters in George R R Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire cycle of novels, Jon Snow is the illegitimate son of Lord Eddard Stark, a Westerosi nobleman who is also known within the books as Ned Stark of Winterfell. He is unfailingly morally correct and decent, even when he has to make impossible choices, and this as well as his courage, unwavering dedication, considerable conscience and prowess in battle tends to endear Jon Snow to the reader all the way through the books. Jon Snow’s parentage is withheld from the reader all the way through the series of novels, indeed it is unkown even by the character himself; since Ned Stark is executed at the close of A Game of Thrones, he appears to take the tantalising secret of who Jon Snow’s mother is with him to the crypts beneath Winterfell.

Above: Rainfall outlook (in inches) for the week long period from 8 am EDT Friday, May 29, 2020, through 8 am EDT Friday, June 5. This outlook is derived from all members of the GFS model (GEFS) from 12Z Friday. Ensemble output tends to smooth out errors that can crop up in a single run, so it tends to be more reliable than an individual model run for large scale patterns going out more than several days.
How the EU Should Fix the ResponseIn general, the EU should heed UNHCR calls for a more humane and legal response to the refugee crisis. It is important that humanitarian admission and at the very least temporary protection be expanded, while improving the legal routes for refugees to seek asylum (Orchard Miller 9). The status quo of discouraging and preventing refugees from making it to the EU and deportation cannot go on in order to mitigate the crisis.
