This will go down in history as one of science and medical research's greatest achievements. Perhaps the most impressive.
I put together a preliminary timeline of some key milestones to show how several years of work were compressed into months.

This West Point graduate is Alex Idrache. He grew up in a slum in Haiti, and he tells of how U.S. soldiers were deployed to his neighborhood following the earthquake there several years ago. He says their presence was the first experience of "hope" he recalls in his childhood.

#HappyThanksgiving to one an all! This year, and every year, I am thankful for God, family, friends, and country. 🙏🏽

HAPPY COLLEGE BASKETBALL SEASON!

Mark it down, the 2021 Final Four:

Students & teachers are safer in school full time & kids won’t lose massive development. The unions don’t have kids’ backs. Good on @nedlamont for holding his ground. | CT Teachers Union Calls For Remote Learning https://www.courant.com/coronavirus/hc-news-coronavirus-teacher-unions-call-for-remote-learning-20201123-zs5b5osjr5dt3ilp6bugvpwsyu-story.html

Not good. CT issues few charters & funds them ~$5k less per pupil than district schools. Despite this, arguably the best primary school in CT is an inner-city charter. CT pols & journos who talk big about helping low-income & racial minority kids, but ignore this, are posturing.

Ineffective charter school laws and overregulation are strangling education opportunity.

The persistent idea that Republicans doubled down on Trump populism is not correct. The top issues in final ads were taxes, economy, & health care. Trade & immigration were less emphasized. Rep House margins outperformed Trump & Reps continued using lots of conservative rhetoric.

Prospective observational study finds enormous association between Vitamin D levels at admission and mortality, recommends mass supplementation. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-020-77093-z

After a deep dive into multiple sources of data from the 100 largest cities, my conclusion is that 2020 has been an extremely violent year. The murder rate will rise substantially this year (red = increase in fatal shootings relative to same period last year, green=decline)

Once the heart of Yankee Republicanism, Fairfield County, Connecticut has seen a rapid leftward shift in the Trump era. Joe Biden carried this county with 63% of the vote. Biden doubled Clinton's margins in once staunchly GOP Darien and New Canaan.

U.S. Missile Defense Agency says it shot down an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in space for first time using interceptor missile fired from a warship in successful test

The $600 UI bonus expired almost 4 months ago. @paulkrugman, can you tell us when to expect that "more than 4% GDP" hit you promised?

Uncle Milton’s entire Free To Choose series is on @PrimeVideo! Thoughtful documentaries+debates about political+econ topics in each ep. To think I bought the entire 10 DVD series when I was 14. Great viewing for the whole family this holiday season 🙃🗽 https://watch.amazon.com/detail?gti=amzn1.dv.gti.0cb26424-7e09-1b47-1056-e6d3dcc98a56&territory=US&ref_=share_ios_season&r=web

This is fantastic. Not a single recipient of the Moderna vaccine candidate developed a serious COVID case https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-11-16/moderna-vaccine-is-found-highly-effective-at-preventing-covid-19 $MRNA

My 13yo is running for class president, and her speech has a blistering opening: “Everyone knows Middle School is the worst time in anyone’s life.”

Unfortunately, one big story of the 2020 election is the further polarization of the country by population density, with cities/suburbs moving left and rural areas moving right. This will make our institutions even less representative and could exacerbate affective polarization.

BREAKING. Still can’t call the 36 senatorial race in Connecticut between @RyanFazio and Alex Kasser. We are pending final absentee ballot counts from Stamford, New Canaan as well as a few from Greenwich.

VOTED! Picked up two big votes in my home precinct with @fcamillo. It’s been an honor to have Fred’s unwavering support since the beginning of this campaign. He knows that it’s time for a change in Hartford! 5.5 hours left to VOTE! 🇺🇸

Great campaigning this year with @ryanfazio. He’s an impressive candidate & will be an even more impressive senator fighting to reduce CT spending, stop Dems from raising taxes &bring reasonableness to state government. But first you need to vote tomorrow for Ryan Fazio.

#BREAKING @GovNedLamont rolls entire state back to "Phase 2.1" as of Friday:

Restaurants:
- 50% capacity, 8 people/table max
- Close by 9:30pm

Salons:
- 75% capacity

Event Venues:
- Capacity: 25 indoors, 50 outdoors

Worship:
- 50% capacity/100 people max

Change in individual behavior & socializing in Euro, & more gradual change in the US, is likely behind a major surge in Euro COVID cases & (lesser) growth in US. I assume much more of that socializing occurred indoors in Sep-Oct. Useful article. https://www.wsj.com/articles/pandemic-fatigue-is-realand-its-spreading-11603704601?st=htqyo0ki0cjq2qf&reflink=article_copyURL_share

Shots fired are up 225% yoy for the last four weeks in New Haven and 343% in Hartford. Horrible. Violence was rising this summer when @CTDems set a negative tone against policing, but it is surging after the police bill started going into effect Oct1.

.⁦@CTDems⁩ run *from* their record. They think 49th place in job creation is the best our people can do.

I am running alongside local GOP candidates because we know that CT can do better. Good op-ed by @mspilo.

SPILO: Greenwich Democrats Are Afraid of Their Record

I have been around @ryanfazio for months and this interview solidifies why I support him. In it he tackles the tough issues in a calm thoughtful way outside of the chaos of a campaign. Please listen, share and vote.

My opponent has accused me of the horrid crime of...not believing America was *founded on* heinous bigotry. Guilty as charged! I’m happy to be the only candidate in our race unwilling to malign the honor of our great nation.

I had a well known Democrat in Stamford tell me she is not voting for @Alex4CT on November 3rd. She said she felt Alex was not doing a good job representing our district. @ryanfazio your doing a great job connecting with voters.

Last night over 50 signs supporting our Greenwich Police were vandalized. Its not about the cost of the signs, but the disgusting message sent to our community, our GPD & their supporters. Many signs are still up for all to see what some people think of the GPD #GRTC #BackTheBlue
