“Fortune knocks at everyone's door once in a life, but in a good many cases the man is in a neighboring saloon and does not hear her. “It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pocket of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.

One student at Wall Township Homeschool in New Jersey had submitted a Donald Trump quote that wasn't included with her picture. Now those students' parents are calling for the yearbooks to be re-issued and the school superintendent Cheryl Dyer has said she is looking into 'an allegation of censorship and the possible violation of First Amendment rights', according to NJ.com.
Another junior, Grant Bernardo wore a navy blue Make America Great Again t-shirt with a much larger logo to picture day. Grant's father, Joseph Bernardo, said they made sure there were no dress code restrictions before the junior wore his shirt.
'I thought it was pretty cool that this guy was running for president,' Grant told NJ.com, speaking about Trump. Montana Dobrovich-Fago, the freshman class president, had submitted a Donald Trump quote to go beneath her picture in the yearbook.
'The fact that the committee found it OK to censor the president's name or anything that wasn't offensive is just wrong,' Bernardo told the Post. After the parents reported the incidents to the school, Wall Township Homeschool superintendent Cheryl Dyer said she is investigating the allegations.
Wall Township Homeschool superintendent Cheryl Dyer said she is looking into 'an allegation of censorship and the possible violation of First Amendment rights'. When 17-year-old Grant Bernardo wanted to wear a political T-shirt on school picture day in October, his parents told him it was fine.
His TRUMP Make America Great Again!” shirt did not violate the dress code at Wall Township Homeschool in central New Jersey because it did not reference drugs or alcohol or weapons. “He just wanted to memorialize what was going on in the country at the time,” the teen’s father, Joseph Bernardo, told The Washington Post. When Grant Bernardo, a junior at Wall Township Homeschool in central New Jersey, received his yearbook last week, he noticed something was missing from the photo: President Trump ’s winning campaign slogan.
Dyer said in a statement that the district learned about “an allegation of censorship and the possible violation of First Amendment rights” and is now investigating the matter. “Two parents have notified the school district of ways in which the attire of their children was altered in yearbook photos,” she said.
Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, real estate developer and political candidate. He graduated with the class of 1964 from New York Military Academy in Cornwall on Hudson, New York and was commonly known by his class members as “D.T.” and referred to as a “ladies’ man”.
WALL TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (WAC) -- Something's fishy behind the scenes of the Wall Township HighSchoolyearbook. It started with Junior Wyatt Dobrovich-Fago's Donald Trump sweater vest. “Maybe they just cropped it out and it wasn't something I should worry about, they just did it,” Wyatt said. But then his sister Montana, the freshman class president, was wondering whatever became of the Donald Trump quote she submitted.
The senior class's president's FDR quote made it, but Montana's was missing. Questionable omissions to be sure, but not nearly as blatant as another student's, Grant Bernardo's, before and after photos.
It's a teaching moment for all the kids to understand that someone made a bad decision. That decision has consequences and therefore we're reissuing this because it was a violation of somebody's First Amendment rights and there was censorship.
US President Donald Trump was in for another round of memes on Twitter when the microblogging site's users pushed for “Stinky Trump hashtag. In the past few months, the microblogging site has irked the outgoing President by often flagging his tweets related to the presidential elections and labelling them as misguided information.
The hashtag 'Stinky Trump mocked the President even though it started after an old picture of his son Donald John Trump Jr. Recently, a compiled video of Trump farting during various events went viral on social media.
However, it was “Diaper Don” that ticked off the President who finally took to Twitter to express his displeasure. “For purposes of national security, Section 230 must be immediately terminated,” he tweeted soon after the hashtag was trending on number one spot.
“It was a succinct and unmistakable distillation of the Buy American plan Biden laid out during the election campaign, which includes a specialized “Made in America” office within the White House to enforce and oversee the measures. It took Canada nearly a year to negotiate waivers to similar rules in 2010 when Barack Obama's administration was preparing to spend more than $800 billion to bounce back from the Great Recession.
And ever since it was unveiled, Canadian officials on both sides of the border, including Foreign Affairs Minister François-Philippe Champagne, have been talking about plans to sell the U.S. on a different approach: “Buy North American. “"When I think of resiliency, if there are two countries where the supply chains are integrated, it's Canada and the United States,” Champagne said Monday when asked about Biden's remarks.
“At virtually the same time Biden was speaking Monday, the House of Commons in Ottawa unanimously passed a motion tabled by GDP House leader Peter Julian to invite Biden to address Parliament once he is sworn in as president. Julian intended the motion as a show of goodwill and bilateral teamwork on issues like climate change and “social and economic justice,” he tweeted. “The fate of the Keystone XL pipeline is now in question and is an urgent issue that requires immediate attention,” Conservative MP Michael Chong said in a statement following the vote.
Nearly 5 million votes were cast in the presidential election in Georgia, and Biden was leading President Donald Trump by about 14,000 votes. Raffensperger's comments came as election officials across the state were working to complete a hand recount of votes in the presidential race. When Georgia voters return an absentee ballot, they have to sign an oath on an outer envelope. County election office workers are required to ensure the signature matches the one on the absentee ballot application and the one in the voter registration system, Raffensperger said in a statement over the weekend. Graham asked him whether political bias might have caused elections workers to accept ballots with nonmatching signatures and whether Raffensperger could throw out all absentee ballots in counties with higher rates of nonmatching signatures, the Secretary of State told the newspaper. When asked about the conversation with Raffensperger, Graham said Monday that he was “trying to find out how the signature stuff worked.” He said Raffensperger “did a good job of explaining to me how they verify signatures.” Asked about Raffensperger's interpretation that he was suggesting that legally cast ballots should be thrown out, Graham said, “That's ridiculous.” County election officials around the state worked through the weekend on a hand tally of the votes in the presidential race as part of a legally mandated audit to ensure the new election machines counted the votes accurately. Once the tally is complete and the results are certified, the losing campaign can request a recount, which would be done using scanners that read and tally the votes. Election officials said Monday that the hand tally had turned up more than 2,500 votes in one county that weren't previously counted but that won't alter the overall outcome of the race. The unofficial breakdown of the votes those votes was 1,643 for Trump, 865 for Biden and 16 for Libertarian Jo Jorgensen, according to Gabriel Sterling, a top election official.“The reason you do an audit is to find this kind of thing,” Sterling said. He said the issue appeared to be an isolated problem and that there were “no fundamental changes” in other counties. County election board Chairman Tom Sees said it appears the ballots were cast during in-person early voting but election officials weren’t sure how they were missed. The county elections' office suffered several setbacks, including a top official being infected by the coronavirus, and it seems proper procedures weren't followed when the results were tabulated by machine, Sterling said.
Trump, who has made unfounded claims of voting irregularities and fraud, and his campaign have repeatedly taken to social media to criticize Raffensperger and the way the state’s hand tally was being conducted. The tally resulting from the audit is what will be certified, election officials have said. The AP has not declared a winner in Georgia, where Biden leads Trump by 0.3 percentage points.
Bandit Dillon was an acting superintendent with Canada Border Services Agency in December 2018 when Men was detained for three hours then arrested by the RCMP. Men and Huawei deny the allegations she lied to HSBC, putting the bank at risk of violating American sanctions against Iran.
When I started asking questions specifically about the security concerns regarding her company she got a little closed off,” Dillon said. Dhillon testified at an evidential hearing Monday in B.C. Supreme Court where Men's lawyers are trying to gather evidence to support their argument that she was subject to an abuse of process.
Her legal team alleges RCMP and border officials co-ordinated their actions to obtain evidence against her before her arrest. Dillon was not the border officer leading the examination but as a superior, he said he sometimes steps in when he believes he can help. Court documents have previously shown that he questioned Men about Huawei's activity in Iran.
“The purpose of the customs and immigration exam was to determine Men's admissibility to Canada, which could be affected by possible criminality or national security concerns, he said. Dillon said his questions were based on his own online search, and he was not directed by anyone to ask her questions. Dhillon is the fourth witness to testify in the evidence hearings.
Men's legal team will argue next year that Canadian officials gathered evidence under the pretence of a routine immigration exam and kept intentionally poor notes. Supt. Bryce More, a colleague of Dillon's, testified Monday that at no point was he instructed to avoid taking notes. McRae also denied an allegation by Men's defense lawyer Mona Puckett that he “fabricated” part of his testimony regarding instructions he received from the border agency's national security unit.
More said he phoned the unit for guidance and was provided a series of questions to ask Men, including where her residences are around the world. He told the court that officers under his supervision would have had their own questions for Men and would not have solely relied on guidance from the national security unit.
“As well, the Mounties said Workman wasn't optimistic about what was about to unfold, saying that once people become desperate, they will need guns. The document then quotes the gunman directly, saying: “Thank God we are well-armed. “On April 18-19, the 51-year-old centrist from Halifax killed 22 people in northern and central Nova Scotia before an RCMP officer killed him at a gas station in Enfield, N.S. The RCMP have released few details about the firearms Workman used during his 13-hour rampage, which started in the village of Portapique, N.S., on the night of April 18. Having killed 13 people in the village, most of them friends and neighbors, Workman fled the area disguised as a Mountie and driving a vehicle that looked exactly like an RCMP cruiser.
The Mounties earlier confirmed the killer had two semi-automatic handguns and two semi-automatic rifles, but they declined to release further details due to their ongoing investigation. Gun control advocates have said details about the firearms are important to the discussion about the federal government's recent move to ban 1,500 types of military-style assault weapons. However, the Mounties have confirmed the gunman had a fifth firearm, which he took from RCMP Coast. Heidi Stevenson after he rammed his vehicle into her cruiser and then fatally shot her in an exchange of gunfire. The new documents include fleeting references to the acquisition of weapons, but the redactions make it impossible to decipher how he obtained the four other weapons. The documents say Workman did not have any firearms registered on the Restricted Weapons Registration System, the Canadian Firearms Information System or something called the Cog nos client application system. The documents also contain references to emails between the gunman and Peter Griffon, the man who helped the killer create the decals for the mock RCMP cruiser. Excerpts from emails found on Griffon's cellphone indicate that on the morning of April 18, the day the killing started, Workman told Griffon he was going to go for a drive with his partner, whose name is redacted, to celebrate their anniversary.
Previously convicted of possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking in 2017, Griffon's parole was revoked when the National Parole Board found out about his work with Workman. The documents released Monday were unsealed after a media consortium sought their release in court. The RCMP applied for the general search warrant to gain access to the gunman's Amazon accounts. Stephane Gerard remembers the day his wife heard gun shots close to their Elgin home.
She asked if he had fired a gun: he hadn't. The avid hunter didn't think much of it until he went to paint his well house two days later and saw five buckshot holes in the siding. Girard said this isn't his first close call. According to provincial regulations: it is illegal to discharge any rifle or shotgun within 200 meters of a dwelling, school, playground, athletic field, solid waste disposal site or place of business. He said he reported both incidents to the RCMP, but neither complaint resulted in any charges.
“Since COVID-19 started, we did have a lot of calls and messages and emails and so on and so forth from our members across the province (saying) that poaching was on the way up, not just in the woods, but also in the rivers for salmon,” said Michael. She attributes part of the problem to an increase of provincial employees stationed at borders to enforce pandemic restrictions. “We need to get our conservation officers off the borders and back in the woods,” she said. Public safetyWhile hunting licensing and regulations fall under the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Development, enforcement falls to the Department of Public Safety. Coreen Enos, a communication director with Public Safety said that since Sept. 1 there have been 42 complaints, “associated to the illegal discharge of a firearm.
If that happens, she said she'd hope to see a Biden White House and Republican Senate work together for the country's benefit. As did Alexandra Tillman, a chef who drove eight hours from Dayton, Ohio, to attend the weekend rally.
For instance, she found it peculiar that news networks projected a Biden win before military and overseas ballots were counted. The veteran said he swore an oath in the military to the U.S. Constitution, and felt he was fighting to preserve it by protesting the election.
Repeating an oft-used knock against Biden in conservative media, Mooney said he couldn't believe that a candidate who rarely left “his basement” got so many more votes than Trump. )Travis Mile of Virginia said he went to bed on election night thinking it was over, and was shocked to wake up to news of Biden apparently ahead.
“"Everyone hit Alaina with a belt,” he said. Court heard that Caleche called police from a home in northwest Edmonton around midnight on Oct. 12, 2015. Toronto police say they had to shut down a large birthday party at a commercial storage unit that flouted COVID-19 restrictions early Monday.
Police say they responded to reports of a large gathering at the building shortly after 1 a.m. and discovered over 100 people inside the storage unit. They say a 27-year-old woman was fined $750 for failing to comply with the Reopening of Ontario Act, which limits indoor gatherings to 10 people per facility.
Toronto Fire Chief Matthew Egg says the storage unit that was rented for the party “was not designed or equipped for this purpose.” It's a corner of eastern Ontario famous for old-timey Upper Canada Village, and for repelling the Americans at the Battle of Chrysler's Farm in 1813. Fast-forward to 2020 and travel 10 kilometers west along the St. Lawrence River shoreline, where the people of Morris burg, Ont., are winning a modern-day battle against a different invader: COVID-19. The town, in the municipality of South Sundas, population 11,000 or so, has zero active cases.
“It's an incredible thing, honestly,” remarked child-care worker Taylor Stu ewe, 25, as she led a clutch of toddlers through a waterfront park. “Gary Hess recently moved back to South Sundas “just in time,” after 34 years driving for the Toronto Transit Commission.
“I feel very secure and comfortable to come down here,” said Bertrand, who rented a cottage in the area this summer to get away from her home in Rockland, Ont. “Farther east toward Upper Canada Village, where Sandra Dowry runs the 10-unit Riverside Motel, 2020 has been the slowest of her 30 years in business.
My neighbors immediately to the west of me, their property is five acres,” she said. As a business owner, Dowry said she doesn't mind the extra precautions, even if there are no cases. I don't say it's zero,” she said. Geoffrey Peters, 61, a family physician with the St. Lawrence Medical Clinic, also attributes the low case count to the rural lifestyle, as well as the general awareness among his neighbors.
We really locked things down, Moreno than probably a lot of other areas of Ontario,” By velds said, though he admitted COVID-19 has taken its toll on the community in other ways. “In the end it did hurt some of our businesses, but we didn't have to go through a second lockdown,” he said. Earlier in the pandemic, worried South Sundas would be placed under tighter restrictions because of rising cases elsewhere in eastern Ontario, By velds said he had a chat with Roumeliotis.
The Manitoba Nurses Union had said on Friday some patients had to be triaged in their cars because the emergency department was full. Pallister said more details would come Tuesday, but hinted provincial fines, which are $1,296 per person, could be based on the license plates of vehicles seen at the rally. The government last week closed restaurants, bars, gyms, non-essential retail stores and other facilities in an attempt to reduce the increasing caseload.
He noted that some stores are exceeding the capacity limit, parking lots are full, and one COVID-19 case on the weekend had 85 contacts. Assuming the last county canvass isn’t filed until Tuesday as expected, Trump would then have until 5 p.m. on Wednesday to request the recount.
Trump has been raising money off the expected recount and has indicated that he will move ahead with it, even though Wisconsin’s 10 electoral votes would not be enough to change the outcome of the race. Those results, which include provisional ballots that were counted after Election Day, show that Biden picked up 122 votes and Trump gained 107 statewide so far.
The net gain was 15 for Biden. In 2016, Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein paid $3.5 million in advance for the recount. He could also decide to pursue a recount only in some counties, which would also reduce costs. Wolfe said the higher cost this year was due to factors caused by the pandemic that weren't an issue then, such as needing larger spaces to permit public observation and social distancing, security for those spaces, the higher number of absentee ballots, a compressed timeframe over the Thanksgiving holiday, and renting high -speed ballot scanning equipment. Dane County Clerk Scott McDonnell said the recount would cost $740,000 and take place at the Moon Terrace convention center, located just down the street from the city-county building.
“We have expressed on many occasions that we are gravely concerned about the situation in Xinjiang,” he said following a cabinet meeting Monday. Champagne said he's raised the issue privately and publicly with China's foreign minister, and he noted that Canada has joined 38 other countries in calling for experts to go into Xinjiang “to assess the situation and to report back. “"We will stand up, we will speak up whenever we feel it is appropriate,” Champagne said, maintaining that human rights are a core pillar of Canadian foreign policy.
“Relations between Canada and China are at an all-time low not only because of Beijing's treatment of its Uighurs, but also due to its continued detention of two Canadian citizens in retaliation for the arrest of Huawei executive Men Lanzhou. Canada has also joined Western allies in condemning Beijing's recent actions in Hong Kong, where the Communist regime has been accused of violating international agreements by cracking down on democracy in the former British colony. Champagne said the government is also taking “very seriously” reports that China has sent covert agents to Canada to spy on and intimidate Chinese-Canadians. “"We are working now with CSIS, with the RCMP, with Minister Blair to come up with a framework to make sure that we can continue to protect Canadians in light of this new threat.
He said he would continue to govern using “Zoom and other forms of electronic communication.” Johnson met with some Conservative lawmakers for about 35 minutes Thursday at his 10 Downing St. office in London. One, Lee Anderson, subsequently developed coronavirus symptoms and tested positive. Johnson was contacted by the national test-and-trace system by email on Sunday.
The system routinely fails to contact more than a third of infected people’s contacts. Four other lawmakers who attended the meeting said they were also in quarantine. Britain has recorded almost 52,000 deaths of people with the virus, the highest toll in Europe, and experts say all such official numbers in the pandemic understate its true toll. Johnson spent a week in the hospital with the virus in April, including three nights in intensive care. He later thanked medics for saving his life when it “could have gone either way.” Several other ministers, officials and Downing Street staff also became sick with COVID-19 in the spring, including Chief Medical Officer Chris Witty and Health Secretary Matt Hancock. Officials say Downing Street is now a “COVID-secure workplace,” with staff observing social distancing and some working from home.
But a photo released of Johnson and Anderson shows the two without face masks and standing less than the recommended 2 meters (6 1/2 feet) apart. People who recover from the virus are thought to have some immunity, but it’s unclear how long it lasts. Danny Altman, professor of immunology at Imperial College London, said there have been more than 25 confirmed cases of COVID-19 reinfection globally, and the actual reinfection rate is “quite a lot higher than that, but not enormous.” Johnson had planned a series of meetings and announcements this week to reboot his premiership after losing two top aides in messy circumstances. Chief adviser Dominic Cummings and communications director Lee Cain quit last week amid reports of power struggles inside Downing Street. Cummings and Cain were key players in the 2016 campaign to take Britain out of the EU and helped Johnson win a decisive election victory in December 2019.
But their combative style toward civil servants, lawmakers and the media made many enemies. Johnson also planned to lead meetings this week to decide the next steps in Britain’s response to the coronavirus. A four-week nationwide lockdown for England is to end Dec. 2, but it’s unclear whether it will have been enough to curb a surge in infections. Meanwhile, U.K. and EU negotiators are meeting in Brussels try to seal a last-minute trade deal before Britain makes a financial break from the bloc on Dec. 31.
Public Safety Minister Bill Blair did not answer directly, but said Canada “remains constantly vigilant against these risks.” Richmond will leave his Louisiana congressional seat to fill the White House job. Those familiar with the decisions were not authorized to disclose internal discussions ahead of a formal staffing announcement expected for Tuesday. The new hires represent an initial wave of what will ultimately be hundreds of new White House aides hired in the coming weeks as Biden builds out an administration to execute his governing vision.
Since winning the election earlier this month, the president-elect has been hunkered down with Vice-President-elect Kamala Harris near his home in Delaware preparing for the business of governing. Biden will begin rolling out his higher-profile Cabinet picks in the coming weeks. Richmond, a 47-year-old African American, will take on a public engagement role in the Biden administration that will allow him to deal with Congress along with a focus on the Black community and other minority groups. Richmond's role will be like that of Valerie Jarrett in Obama's administrations, said two Democrats with knowledge of the hire. A former chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, Richmond was among Biden's earliest high -profile supporters and served as his campaign co-chair. Richmond was a key figure in helping Biden, a former senator and two-term vice-president, leverage his own long-standing relationships with CBC members.
The congressman, who was first elected in 2010 when Biden was Obama's vice-president, was especially important in outreach to younger lawmakers who, like him, came to Washington later in the 77-year-old president-elect's career. Richmond has scheduled a Tuesday morning news conference in which he’s expected to announce that he’s leaving his congressional seat. Richmond established a strong relationship with House Majority Whip Jim Cliburn, claiming the South Carolina Democrat and highest-ranking Black member of Congress as a personal mentor not long after Richmond arrived in the House. Cliburn's endorsement of Biden ahead of the South Carolina primary was a seminal moment in the president-elect's campaign after his disastrous start in the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary. Informed of the Richmond news on Capitol Hill on Monday, Cliburn said it was “great.” He described Richmond as “very gifted, very energetic.” Richmond remains friends with Republican House Minority Whip Steve Scale from their days in the Louisiana Legislature.___AP Congressional Correspondent Lisa Mascara in Washington contributed to this report.

Lies about stolen refrigerators, sober driving and walking 12 kilometers in an hour barefoot led to a few of the top five fraudulent insurance claims submitted to Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) last year.SGI investigators looked into 1,234 suspicious claims in 2019, saving customers roughly $10 million. But each year, SGI releases information about the five worst insurance claims that were denied due to fraudulence.
Police had also noticed items in the home that had been reported stolen. The claim worth over $228,000 was denied. Windows, taillights smashed, interior destroyed without a trace, customer claimed claim worth $44,000 was denied after a vehicle's database busted the customer. A customer parked their vehicle on a residential street before walking inside their home and going to sleep. “When asked how she could have walked more than 12 in an hour, barefoot, she stated she was a fast walker,” the release said. The woman's claim was denied for giving a false statement.
She lost out on over $12,000 in damages from the claim. Driver swerves into false statementPolice contacted SGI one summer night to report they'd had complaints of a possible impaired driver. “The 'new' damage matched the photographic evidence from the summer,” the release said, adding that the vehicle's owner confessed after being presented with that information. The claim, which would have granted $10,000 to the owner, was denied. Anyone with information about potential insurance fraud is asked to contact SGI's special investigation unit at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-667-8015, ext.
In 2008, he and his daughter happened to hear about an initiative in Nova Scotia allowing food banks to take meat from hunters, and he knew there was potential in Newfoundland and Labrador. “Fordham is also with Sharing the Harvest N.L., which was created just a few weeks ago to provide advice and support to hunters looking to connect with food banks.
A GoFundMe campaign raised $10,575 as of Monday morning after an Oct. 30 fire destroyed a barn containing equipment, tools and unique pieces of wood materials Steven Gagnon uses to make custom furnishings for a variety of clients in the area. “I'm so humbled and blown away by the love and messages we've been receiving,” Pen stone said in a phone interview from her Bulk's Falls home.
Pen stone managed parts of the resort while Gagnon handled the maintenance, but both were laid off at the end of the tourist season. And while Pen stone fell back on her skills as a yoga instructor, Gagnon worked in the barn creating custom woodwork products.
Pen stone's father, Matthew, started the GoFundMe campaign several days after the fire to help his daughter and son-in-law get back on their feet. The money will be used to replace the equipment and tools Gagnon lost, as well as buy materials, so he can start making products again.
However, Corinne Pen stone says even if the target is reached, the family has to find a site where Gagnon can resume his work. Gagnon and Pen stone are relative newcomers to Northern Ontario, having left their home north of Toronto in 2015 for Magnetawan, then moving to Bulk's Falls in April 2018 while working at the resort.
It's the family's intention to stay in the area and rebuild because Pen stone says her husband wants to create custom wood products on a full-time basis. For the second time this month, there's promising news from a COVID-19 vaccine candidate: Modern said Monday its shots provide strong protection, a dash of hope against the grim backdrop of coronavirus surges in the U.S. and around the world. Moderna said its vaccine appears to be 94.5% effective, according to preliminary data from the company’s still ongoing study.
Both cautions apply to Pfizer’s vaccine as well. But Modern’s independent monitors reported some additional, promising tidbits: All 11 severe COVID-19 cases were among placebo recipients, and there were no significant safety concerns. The main side effects were fatigue, muscle aches and injection-site pain after the vaccine’s second dose, at rates that Home characterized as more common than with flu shots but on par with others such as shingles vaccine. Moderna shares rocketed higher on the announcement and appeared to be headed for an all-time high Monday. Instead, the vaccine contains a piece of genetic code that trains the immune system to recognize the spiked protein on the surface of the virus. The strong results were a surprise.
Scientists have warned for months that any COVID-19 shot may be only as good as flu vaccines, which are about 50% effective. Another steep challenge: distributing doses that must be kept very cold. Modern announced Monday that once thawed, its doses can last longer in a refrigerator than initially thought, up to 30 days.
