Some states went against the tide and reopened in 2021 — but only partially, limiting attendance to higher grades and only half the student body on a given day. Each time cases surged, schools were the first to close and only restarted in person months after every other economic activity had resumed.

【环球时报特约记者 吕克】第94届奥斯卡颁奖典礼将于当地时间3月27日晚在洛杉矶举行。由于去年奥斯卡收视率创历史新低——仅1040万人观看,这给主办方美国电影艺术与科学学院以及转播方美国ABC频道带来不小的压力。“如今最大的挑战,就是怎么吸引人来看?”本届奥斯卡颁奖典礼制作人威尔·帕克表示,“今年的奥斯卡要和好莱坞之外的人相关联,也就是说,必须和影迷、粉丝们建立联系。”奥斯卡主办方既想讨好观众、提高收视率,又要维系学院和“小金人”的神圣感与声望——如何获取这种平衡?

从瘟疫噩梦到德堡疑云,美国为何对生物武器如此“迷恋”?
美国在俄乌爆发军事冲突前煽风点火。眼见火起,华盛顿一边火上浇油,一边尽量远离“火场”,生怕烧到自己。可是,人算不如天算,还是有一颗火星溅到美国身上,烧出一个大洞,引得大家纷纷围过来往洞里瞧,想搞清楚美国人到底在遮掩什么。俄罗斯总统普京说,乌克兰在美国军方的指导和支持下开展军事生物计划。中国外交部发言人也表示,中方呼吁美国开放在乌克兰的生物实验室供国际专家独立调查,并停止独家反对建立《禁止生物武器公约》核查机制。我们几乎可以肯定的是,这些合理要求不会被美国所接受,因为美国推动生物武器的研制、试验、开发和大规模使用,已有近百年时间了。在这段时间里,美国对这种武器的认知在持续加深。我们只有理清美国对生物武器深度认知的过程,才能透过纷纷杂杂的事件以及真真假假的信息,看清华盛顿的底层逻辑,明白美国“欲罢不能”的根本原因。
