From Pa. science fairs to coronavirus response coordinator: Deborah Birx's path to the White House
PHILADELPHIA — When Deborah Birx told classmates at Carlisle High School that she planned to compete in the local science fair, some laughed.It was the early 1970s, and Birx was a pretty girl with a bubbly personality. She waitressed after school at a Carlisle drive-in restaurant and went to school football games on weekends. Back then, few people in the Cumberland County town about 23 miles from Harrisburg were expecting her to be good at science.But Birx’s project on paleobotany in the Carboniferous period won a 1973 science fair, then won an international science competition in California. ...

The uneven spread of resources, technology and human capital means that different countries h...

Co-defensive coordinator Andre Patterson told him the Vikings envision a similar trajectory as Joseph, who as a premiere run stopper also delivered crushing blows to quar...

Dennis Anderson: Minnesota's path isn't so clear after wolves become delisted

Not so with wolves.That’s because, notwithstanding the science and, many would argue, common sense upon which the service’s delisting is founded, lawsuits from those opposing delisting — among them the Center for Biological Diversity headquartered in Arizona — are likely, if not guaranteed.At issue, fundamentally, is wolf hunting and trapping. When M...
