With 2022 just around the corner, it's time to dig up some of the ancient astrologer Nostradamus' harrowing predictions — and rest assured, things are not looking any brighter next year.
By now, most of us have probably quit our wishful thinking and are just taking life (COVID) wave by wave, but we can't help taking a sift through some of the 16th-century astrologer's predictions from his 1555 book Les Prophéties, just in case.
But the taming of the coronavirus conceals failures in public health
I hope it all works out. I hope Covid19 evolves to be another treatable flu. I hope there are enough jobs for people to raise their families in safety and dignity. I wish you the very best. And if any of the above rubs you the wrong way... I hope very much that I am wrong. Peace.
With all this anxiety swirling around us, is it any wonder that tarot readers, astrologers and other divinatory practitioners say they’ve never been busier? All of us want to know what will happen next.
The astonishingly rapid development and rollout of coronavirus vaccines has been a reminder of the power of science and technology to change the world. Although vaccines based on new mrna technology seemed to have been created almost instantly, they actually drew upon decades of research going back to the 1970s. As the saying goes in the technology industry, it takes years to create an overnight success. So what else might be about to burst into prominence?
If 2020 and 2021 were not the weirdest, most challenging two years of your professional life, we’re glad we don’t have your job. The global COVID-19 pandemic, roiling economic disruptions, uneven vaccine rollouts and constant political controversy have made the last 24 months a white-knuckle ride. With any luck, 2022 won’t have quite the skydiving-without-a-parachute feel, but it’s guaranteed to have more than its share of challenges.
After a year filled with unprecedented challenges and uncertainty, experts hope lessons learned from 2021 can prepare us for a stabler 2022. But professors across Northwestern University say to expect the year’s highs and lows to follow us into the new year.
More COVID deaths, more variants, and more uncertainty — no wonder this year was less than stellar.
2021 was an incredibly hard year for many people, including me, but I’m hopeful that 2022 will be better.
The new year brings promises of novel treatments and more convenient testing.
