    I'm not sure where to post this: https://www.yahoo.com/news/orthodox-jewish-rabbi-disguised-himself-191327858.html

    Basically the article is about how an Orthodox Jewish man accommodated a couple of his foster children during the coronavirus pandemic by "transforming" into Santa Claus (the children are Christian.) The kids couldn't visit any of the mall Santas this year (the gentleman usually brings them [he's Jewish, not them!])

    Here's the same/similar article (in case the other link is taken down: https://www.insider.com/santa-claus-rabbi-foster-kids-2020-12

    Just found out that a particular neighbor passed away Tuesday (it was posted in the main corridor of the complex.) He was the one who presented all of the movies (most of them I didn't go to due to disinterest) plus he would chat with one other neighbor about stuff that neither had any knowledge of (but that's another topic for some other day.)

    I'm not looking for sympathy or anything, just posting the news.

    A brother got Coronavirus. He is back home, still on Oxygen, walks with a crutch, and I am told that the hospital costs were very high even for him.

    Everything safe there. No damage to the building where they were making the vaccine. It was a building which was being constructed. However the loss to company is large, something like 137 million USD. I think the insurance company will pay.
    But really, it seems to be a small building. How can be the loss so large? Not my problem. It will be between the company and the insurer.
    But some other vaccines (tuberculosis, rotavirus) were destroyed, which is unfortunate.
