Northeastern dismisses 11 first-year students for partying. They won't get their $36,500 tuition bac

Northeastern University has dismissed 11 first-year students after they were caught violating social distancing rules, the school announced Friday, the latest and most aggressive attempt to prevent the pandemic from disrupting plans to return to Boston’s campuses this fall.

The students were caught at the Westin Hotel, which is being used as a temporary dormitory this semester, on Wednesday night without masks and not social distancing, according to university spokeswoman Renata Nyul.

The dismissed students will not be allowed to take courses from home this semester but will be permitted to return in the spring, Nyul said. They were part of a special one-semester program for freshmen that was prepaid and cost $36,500. That money will not be refunded.

The students were asked to move out immediately, be tested for COVID-19, enter quarantine if they test positive, and then leave. Their university housing payments will not be refunded, per university rules.

Vaccine Makers Plan Public Stance to Counter Pressure on FDA

Source: Bloomberg

Drugmakers are planning a public pledge to not send any Covid-19 vaccine to the FDA for review without extensive safety and efficacy data, according to people familiar with the effort.

The joint stance is seen as a bulwark against political pressure being applied on the Food and Drug Administration to get a vaccine out as soon as possible. It is likely to be announced in a multi-company statement as soon as next week. The plans, which could still change, were described by people involved in the effort on condition of anonymity.

The companies involved in the discussions include Pfizer Inc., Moderna Inc., Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline Plc, Sanofi and possibly others. All are developing vaccines for Covid-19.

The drug industry has long relied on the FDA as a gold-standard seal of approval for its drugs and vaccines, assuring patients that the products are safe and effective. But in the middle of the pandemic, the agency has made several controversial decisions to allow emergency use of therapies without rock-solid evidence they work.

Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-Utah) wife Ann will join former first lady Michelle Obama on a prime-time special encouraging voting this month.

The two are both slated to appear on ABC’s Sept. 14 hourlong “VOMO: Vote Or Miss Out” special. The program is a joint production of Michelle Obama’s nonprofit When We All Vote as well as ATN and production company Sara + Tom.

“We have a societal responsibility to participate in our country’s democracy,” producer Tom Werner told the Salt Lake Tribune. “This nonpartisan special will, through comedy, encourage people to vote this November.”

“We hope that we can create an event that will speak to all generations, young and old,” ATTN: co-founder Matthew Segal said.
