    CBO Releases an Improved Interactive Tool for Analyzing the Military’s Forces and Resources

    CBO has enhanced its interactive tool for analyzing the U.S. military’s force structure. The tool now lets users alter the total defense budget to see the possible effects on military forces, as well as letting users alter the number of major units to see the effects on the budget. CBO has also created a tutorial to show how the tool’s new functionality can be used to explore various types of policy choices.

      Seems reasonable, but I didn't find an appropriate thread, and didn't want to start a new one for one article.

            CDC Warns Of Monkeypox. Here’s How It Spreads.

            Health officials are warning of a new possible rare disease outbreak called monkeypox. After dozens of cases have been reported globally, the first U.S. case showed up in Massachusetts and a possible case is being investigated in New York City. Dr. Kavita Patel explains how the virus spreads.

            For now, reported number of cases seems small. If it does break out more significantly, then perhaps the same well practiced precautions used to avoid COVID (masks, physical distancing, hygene, some self-isolation, etc.) might become useful in this too.

                            • The EU is slowly running out of Marlboro cigarettes right now.

                              Because the paper for the packaging is produced at obviously the cheapest supplier Philipp Morris could get. In a plant in Charkiv, Ukraine which for obvious reasons shut down end of February.
