A worldwide pandemic, mass unemployment and nationwide protests over racial injustice — there are many important issues occupying our collective attention. Sadly, this kind of large-scale distraction is fertile ground for hackers.

“We have the COVID disaster combined with the economic disaster combined with the protests,” said Adam Levin, cyber security expert and founder of CyberScout, to Yahoo Life. ”We are now in the middle of what can be considered a perfect storm for scammers.”

Levin says that the current climate of our nation has set the stage for an online scam trifecta: motive, means, and opportunity.

Melinda Gates didn’t exactly say Black people ‘must’ be vaccinated for COVID-19

frank lampard

The claim: Melinda Gates says Black people must be vaccinated first for COVID-19 after health care workers.

Melinda Gates, philanthropist and co-founder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, says that after health care workers, Black people must be next in line for vaccination for COVID-19, according to a story on Live24.

Gates, in a Time magazine interview on the eve of global vaccine summit in early June, discussed how anti-racism protests following the death of George Floyd, an African American man, while in custody of Minneapolis police fits into health equity, especially with development of a COVID-19 vaccine.

“The first people that need this vaccine are the 60 million health care workers around the world. They deserve to get it before anybody else. Then you start tiering,” 24Live quoted Gates as saying in the Time story, written by Jamie Ducharme.

The best virtual escape rooms to play online with friends

frank lampard

We could all do with a bit of escapism from reality at the minute, as lockdown continues in the UK.

Escape rooms are very popular with groups who love a challenge, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, all of them in the UK have closed their doors for the foreseeable.

But in the past few weeks, escape rooms have come online instead to make socialising with your friends adrenaline-pumping.

Even the World Health Organisation is urging everyone to stay at home and play games, so if you need some more inspiration we’ve rounded up the best apps that you can play games on with friends and family here.

As with physical escape rooms, the mission is as the name suggests – to escape the room – through a series of problem-solving missions and teamwork. Here are a few of our favourites.

How spas will look when they reopen after lockdown

frank lampard

After months of lockdown spent juggling working from home with parenting, health concerns and financial woes, many of us have been left feeling anxious, fatigued and highly strung.

If there was ever a time for self-care it is now. The ultimate spa experience is something many of us are desperate to indulge in, with our sunlight-starved skin and poor posture longing to be pacified by the hands of a professional while surrounded by lavender scented spritzes and soft music.

But with the hospitality industry closed for business due to the coronavirus outbreak, a deep tissue massage or aromatherapy facial is sadly off the cards.

Just like hairdressers and beauty salons, all spas have been closed since Boris Johnson imposed a nationwide lockdown on 23 March and while many of the restrictions have started to ease, spas are likely to be one of the last outlets to open.

From 15 June 2020, wearing a non-medical face mask or covering while on public transport will be mandatory for adults and children. Only children under the age of two and those with respiratory issues will be exempt from the rule.

The World Health Organization also advises protective gear should be worn in public where social distancing is not possible to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Finding an adult-sized face mask or covering online is fairly simple now as numerous big name brands, including Mango and Anthropologie, sell them in addition to numerous smaller brands. However, there are less options for children.

Don’t let online education turn into the next crisis that hits people of color hardest

frank lampard

When historians look back at 2020, they might see some important lessons about how problems become really big problems when left to fester. 

First, COVID-19 shut down the American economy and killed over 112,000 Americans — disproportionately African American — because we failed to establish the proper public health response early to address it. 

Then, intense national protests erupted in every major city because of our persistent inability to address systemic racism, which manifested itself this time in the brutal police killing of George Floyd.

Problems don’t go away if we try to sweep them under the rug. They just get worse.

Another crisis now looms. Since tens of millions of Americans began sheltering in place in March, the nation’s schools have switched to remote learning. Many teachers, students and parents were unprepared for distance learning, which could become a permanent fixture of education. And once again, communities of color

Public health workers fighting virus face growing threats

frank lampard

Emily Brown was stretched thin.

As the director of the Rio Grande County Public Health Department in rural Colorado, she was working 12- and 14-hour days, struggling to respond to the pandemic with only five full-time employees for more than 11,000 residents. Case counts were rising.

She was already at odds with county commissioners, who were pushing to loosen public health restrictions in late May, against her advice. She had previously clashed with them over data releases and control and had haggled over a variance regarding reopening businesses.

But she reasoned that standing up for public health principles was worth it, even if she risked losing the job that allowed her to live close to her hometown and help her parents with their farm.

Then came the Facebook post: a photo of her and other health officials with comments about their weight and references to “armed citizens” and “bodies swinging
