Happy Almost Birthday to the Newsletter

Quick notes

  • Reminder: webinar on vaccines today at 1pm EST. Register here.

  • If you follow this newsletter for information on schools, a reminder you can see the COVID-19 School Dashboard here and if you missed it, my latest thoughts on this topic in the NYT here.

  • I got a lot of nice feedback to the risk discussion last week, including a lot of people who wanted to think about how to modify the calculations for their own situation (or to play around with the assumptions). It cries out for a spreadsheet, or something fancier. If you have any interest in building this, reach out!

Year in Review

The first official issue of this newsletter dropped Feb 24, 2020. At that point, I had about 2000 subscribers; that number is now over 50,000 (for which I am very, very grateful). But a result of this is that I often get emails asking about topics that I covered in the past. And while the COVID-19 posts tend to be more timely, many of the non-COVID posts are not.

So, today, a quick post highlighting a few posts (mostly non-COVID) that you might have missed.

And, finally, the top COVID posts:

Thank you to all of you for reading. You can see all past posts here.

People sometime ask how they can support the newsletter. All of the content here is free. I do not currently plan to enable paid subscriptions. If you do enjoy the content and want to support more if it, the best way is to buy my books. Especially to pre-order the new one, The Family Firm, which is out in August. You can read more about it here.

Please keep the suggestions coming for both COVID and non-COVID topics. Gas stoves coming later this week, I hope. Unless I get distracted by Phthaltes.

Weigh in!

Keep the thoughts coming. I don’t always write back, but I read everything.

Write to Me!
