Over 700 refugee flights cancelled as Biden's admissions cap continues to be delayed no explanation

President Joe Biden in his first days in office issued an executive order seeking to put the U.S. on track to welcome 125,000 refugees in the first full fiscal year of his administration, from a historic low of 15,000 set by the previous occupant of the Oval Office. Until that first full fiscal year, Biden also proposed quadrupling the current fiscal year’s cap, to 62,500 refugees.  Daily Kos’ Laura Clawson noted at the time that Biden’s subsequent visit to the State Department “sen[t] an unmistakable message ... that priorities have changed in the federal government.” But two months later, CNN reports that Biden has yet to sign the presidential determination, which would begin to put his plan into motion. Lacking that final signature, hundreds of refugees in recent weeks have seen their flights to the U.S. cancelled.

Feds ask for brief hold on Johnson & Johnson vaccinations to push out new emergency guidelines

The Biden administration has announced that they are «recommending» a momentary pause in usage of the Johnson & Johnson one-shot COVID-19 vaccine after six U.S. patients out of 6.8 million administered doses developed a rare but «severe type of blood clot» in the weeks after vaccination. The pause is expected to last only days, but already Americans are reporting Johnson & Johnson vaccination appointments for today being cancelled. While the White House asserts that the increased supply of other vaccines means there will be little overall effect on vaccination rates, there's no question the cancellation of appointments will disrupt many Americans' own efforts to get vaccinated, and the news is likely to further convince some vaccine skeptics to avoid getting any of the available shots.

Whether depicting a birthday party or a child’s first steps, the expressive murals by Mohamed L’Ghacham (previously) enlarge sincere, unposed moments into monumental celebrations of everyday life. The Moroccan artist recreates vintage photographs as wall-sized artworks in locations across Europe that portray a woman readying for bed or the chaotic minutes before a family portrait at a massive scale. L’Ghacham tells Colossal that his relationship to the original images has evolved in recent years from a simple juxtaposition of the site and the quiet, unassuming beauty of the domestic scenes to a more complex understanding.
