In order to make sure that our students are receiving reliable, up-to-date information about the COVID vaccine, we’re invited the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to conduct a workshop on COVID-19 Vaccination in Cantonese for our Cantonese-speaking students. Here are the resources they shared with us. Future workshops will also be in Mandarin and Spanish!
The UK has begun one of its largest vaccination drives and 81-year-old namesake of the Bard of Avon, William Shakespeare, became the second citizen in the West to receive the Pfizer-BioNTech Coronavirus vaccine.
Shakespeare, who was vaccinated in front of the cameras, said he didn’t even feel the needle and was glad he could contribute. “It could make a difference to our lives from now on, couldn’t it?” he said.
‘Bill’ William Shakespeare received the vaccine in the University Hospital in Coventry in the Midlands, not far from Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of the Bard.
Every couple years we publish a collection of writing from our Advanced Writing Class taught by NYU Gallatin Professor June Foley. Our latest collection is called Remember, and it’s full of stories and poems about NYC, technology, family, art, and the pandemic. Here’s a sample for you:
Counting Hours Mariana Lemos Duarte
I am not sure why this memory returned. Maybe because of the silence in the street, Or because of the fear dancing in the air, Or because of the sun that insistently invades the floor of my kitchen.
When I was a girl, I used to count the hours.
I used to wake up early just to have more hours to do nothing. I used to sit on the top of my bunk bed just to have a different point of view of things. I used to look out the window to find the Cristo Redentor. I used to stop whatever I was doing just to see the sunset.
Now, I always have an unfinished task on my to-do list. And these billions of incomplete to-do tasks grow in a way so fast and deep that I lose the joy of doing nothing, And these billions of incomplete to-do tasks grow in a way so fast and deep that I forget to look at things from a different perspective. And these billions of incomplete to-do tasks grow in a way so fast and deep that I find myself thinking: Why does the sunset take so long?
Suddenly the time goes so fast that I lose the ability to count it.
Stop! The world has stopped To remind me of those days When I used to count the hours.
