Travel with family complicated by no COVID-19 vaccine for children

For most people, lockdown hasn’t been easy, but at least the choice to stay home was clear. As people start thinking ahead to traveling again, deciding when and how to go back out into the world is less clear.

For adults vaccinated against COVID-19 and unvaccinated kids, things can feel even more confusing. Will there be such a thing as a safe family vacation this summer?

“Even people with identical circumstances and risk tolerances can feel reasonable drawing different conclusions on how safe they might feel with various vacation scenarios,” says Dean Blumberg, chief of pediatric infectious diseases

How Do You Write an Anthony Bourdain Book Without Anthony Bourdain?

The countries of Ghana, Ireland and Lebanon get three pages apiece; the United States gets nearly 100. There is a chapter on Macau, but nothing on Indonesia or Thailand.

The net gain of 40 orders raised Boeing’s first-quarter total to 76.

Boeing orders have plummeted
