When you’re stuck at home in a life-threatening situation, it can feel like the future will never come. The fight for survival overrides any plans for a future that seems so distant. For that reason, I wanted to focus on stories from other countries where people are planning for the future. Life might not be back to normal, it may not be quite “normal” for a long time, but for now we can hope and ...
Our marbles are placed inside a large circle drawn with green string, and as I roll mine out from ten feet across the floor I somehow get the closest, surpassing the younger members of the household who are surprised at the feat of the first shot.

For today's news briefing is going to be highlighting the different ways that people are dealing with being stuck indoors as the world deals with the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Everything from how human beings are trying to use (or not use) public space, to the way that scientists make observations while respecting social distancing mandates has changed. Some stories might put a smile on your face, and some might make you angry, but each highlights the strange and sometimes unpredictable responses people are having to this new world. 
The focus of today’s news briefing is on the services and frontline workers facing exposure to the ongoing pandemic. From healthcare, to postal services, and even to international shipping, there isn’t a sector of the economy without workers in harm’s way. And this could have disastrous consequences for the rest of society. All stories courtesy of the front page curation at newseum.org and their respective newspaper...
