  • On GTU Hour 2 this morning – Here’s how long will it take to vaccinate enough adults to defeat COVID-19. According to the Deseret News, the United States reportedly needs about 75% of people to be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity. With the current vaccination rate, the U.S. would reach that number by February 2022. That’s if the current pace of vaccine distribution – 914,000 per day – is maintained. With that pace, all US adults would be vaccinated by summer 2022. However, if the U.S. inches up to releasing 1 million shots per day, herd immunity could be reached by the end of 2021.
  • Plus, it was the first U.S. presidential inauguration to feature all guests wearing masks and many eyes were on former President Bill Clinton’s nose. There it was – sometimes left uncovered as his mask slipped down his face, defying guidelines to cover both the mouth and the nose to stop the spread of COVID-19. That led The New York Times to ask on Wednesday: “Is mask-slipping the new manspreading?”
  • And doing four habits that take up just 21 minutes each day can be the key to more happiness in life, according to Shawn Achor, author of “The Happiness Advantage.” One of the habits, spending two minutes a day thinking of what you’re grateful for, can have dramatic results on your health and happiness, Achor’s research shows. Expressing gratitude to someone else once over the course of the day can do the same. We’ll tell you what else you can do.
  • Finally, Costco is finally testing out curbside pickup for groceries. The big box store has decided to test the waters when it comes to offering a service that has become a staple of several large retailers and grocery chains during the pandemic. So would you try it?
