HAVANA: During some summers, as the Caribbean water temperatures climb, the luminous coral colonies of gold, green and blue that ring the island nation of Cuba give way to patches of skeletal white. The technicolor streaks of darting tropical fish flash less frequently. The rasping sounds of lobsters go quiet. While Cuba’s marine life has suffered from overfishing and pollution, there is mounting evidence that the warming of waters due to climate change may be taking a large toll as well - both off the island's coast and globally.

And in Israel, vaccinated people are already using an app to enter gyms, pools and cultural venues. So-called vaccine passports have been hotly debated around the world. These certificates proving one has been immunized against COVID-19 are designed to grant safe access to certain businesses and international travel. While critics fear segregation between vaccinated people and those who can't or won't get jabbed, many supporters point out that showing proof of immunization is already quite common, especially for travelers and migrants. In Israel, vaccinated people can attend cultural events with the so-called Green Pass. No vaccine? No immigration for some When former US representative Justin Amish tweeted that it was "dystopian" to carry around health records, and American media personality and physician Dr. Drew Pinsky asked what people's … [Read more...] about Are vaccine passports really that new?
