We Need a COVID-19 Vaccine. We Also Need Transparency About Its Development

The authorization of an effective vaccine will mark perhaps the biggest turning point in the battle against coronavirus, but only if enough people are willing to get vaccinated. There have been substantial declines in public willingness to get vaccinated against COVID-19, despite immense, unprecedented public investments in vaccine development. In one survey, barely half of Americans said they would get the vaccine as soon as it was available, numbers that will undermine the benefits of even a highly effective vaccine.It is no mystery why trust in a potential vaccine has plummeted. Operation Warp Speed, the Trump Administration’s $10 billion vaccine initiative, and other vaccine efforts have compressed processes that usually take years into months.

Trader Joe's Harvest Spaghetti Squash Spirals Have a Cozy, Fall-Approved Twist

Dude, I freakin' love spaghetti squash, but you know what I don't love? Nearly severing my fingers every time I attempt to slice into the heavy yellow gourd with one of my too-dull knives. That's precisely why I couldn't help but do a happy dance when I heard of Trader Joe's Harvest Spaghetti Squash Spirals, a frozen, gluten-free dish that stars the tricky yet tasty noodle substitute.

Each package includes a few so-called "nests" of spaghetti squash that's already shredded and cooked (my nonsevered fingers and I thank you, TJ), combined with a tomato-based sauce that features chunks of butternut squash, pumpkin puree, herbs, and Parmesan cheese. Umm, is your mouth watering yet?! The Fall-ready dish takes no more than 10 minutes to make - all you have to do is heat some olive oil in a skillet, cook a few nests of spirals, add in the other contents of the bag (aka the tomato sauce, pumpkin, and butternut squash), and then top it with cheese once everything's combined together. Talk about an easy-as-pumpkin-pie weeknight meal!
