First detected in South Africa, the omicron variant could be more contagious and resistant to the vaccine, but researchers say much remains to be learned about this latest coronavirus variant. Plus, an appeals court has temporarily halted San Diego Unified’s vaccine mandate. Also, records show there’s a vast disparity in where police shootings occur. They tend to happen more in communities where more Black and Latino people live. And, UC and CSU applications are due tomorrow, but as with many things during the pandemic, things look a bit different this year. For one, SATs and ACTs are no longer required. Finally, in this excerpt from the Cinema Junky podcast, host Beth Accomando and guest Nora Fiore look past the iconic femme fatale character type to explore the diversity of women in noir.
