What It’s Like For An ER Doc During The Coronavirus Outbreak

As the novel coronavirus continues to spread, more and more people are being directly affected by the disease. At least 412,500 people across 168 countries have contracted the virus, and roughly 18,482 have died. But the pandemic impacts more than our health. Our careers, our social lives, and the global economy have been upended since people diagnosed with the virus began falling ill in China last December.

We especially love pie around the holidays. We reached out to pie makers from across the country, dug through government declarations, and drew on our personal experiences to find each state’s signature pie. Some states share a pie style, proving that even though states have their differences, we’re also alike in m...

That’s in part because the past is what you carry through to your present whether you like it or not. The notion of the past hovering over you as an inescapable force is a theme that runs rampant in a new film and a new TV show, both of which share the same crea...
