He Lost More Than 100 Pounds Before Catching Covid. It Likely Saved His Life

Mick Nardelli knew something had to be done. After weeks of pandemic apathy, wherein incentivized sedentary lifestyles at the onset of Covid introduced the “Quarantine 15,” Nardelli was nearing 300 pounds and had an uncertain future.
At 5’9″ and 295 pounds in his mid-40s, the D.C. suburban father of a 3-year-old watched with a body mass index of nearly 44, (14 points above the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s threshold for “obesity” and therefore qualified as medically “severe”) while the Wuhan virus wreaked havoc on patients who carried excessive weight.

A reflection on NYPD’s fallen officers and their sacrifices

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!
On Friday, January 21st, two young NYPD officers, Jason Rivera, 22, and Wilbert Mora, 27, were fatally shot in the line of duty.

Spend February reading Louise Erdrich’s pandemic novel of grief and ghosts

The Vox Book Club is linking to Bookshop.org to support local and independent booksellers.
We’re now far enough into the pandemic that the first wave of pandemic novels have come out, and if we’re being completely honest, most of them are bad. They’re too boring, or too simple, or too cruel, or they go on about sourdough too much, or they cheerfully announce that the whole thing ended in May 2021 and by now everything is back to normal. No thank you!
The only good pandemic novel I have come across so far is The Sentence by Louise Erdrich, who won the Pulitzer in 2021.
