The COVID-19 pandemic isn’t over yet — who the hell knows if it ever will be — but its early months have come to feel like a distant, drunken, collective nightmare, when everything we thought we knew about human behavior seemed to get turned on its head. At first glance, the Angelenos in Bernard Rose’s dreamy and marvelous Travel Light, which returns us to the summer of 2020, act like space aliens. They speak through each other even as they judge one another. They alternate between anxiety and frivolity, as if nothing is all that important but somehow everything is significant. They’re all incredibly weird yet embarrassingly familiar.

Rose’s film (which is opening theatrically in New York after a run in Los Angeles and will hopefully be more widely available soon) takes place over the course of

Traveling nurses poised to fill in if Minnesota nurses strike

While the pay can vary by region, recruiting agencies say traveling nurses can make $80 an hour or more.

ST PAUL, Min. — The Minnesota Nurses Association (MNA) says there are no formal talks scheduled with hospital leaders this weekend as negotiations continue in an effort to avert a strike.

The 15,000-member union voted this week to authorize a strike, but its leaders are still in discussions about when and if to call one at all. If they do, the union says it would be one of the largest in US history.

In that case, so-called rapid response agencies that retain strike nurses will be available to travel at a moment’s notice and are paid well for their time.

The MNA says it’s negotiating for better pay and working conditions.

“Our patients are sicker and more complex and our nurses are taking care of more of them at one time

What Happens When You Test Positive for COVID Before a Disney Cruise

  • My sister and I were supposed to sail on the new Disney Wish cruise ship in July.
  • But when we got to the port, my sister tested positive for COVID-19 and Disney turned us away.
  • We then received a cruise credit to rebook and were sent to the airport via a Disney shuttle.

I’ve been anticipating my first cruise vacation since the start of this year.

In January, I scheduled a three-day trip on Disney’s newest ship, the Disney Wish, for one of its earliest voyages in June. I invited my sister to join, and we started counting down the days until our sailing.

But one month later, Disney announced it was delaying its initial trips because the ship’s construction was not complete. Though we were disappointed, we were able to rebook our standard, inside stateroom for a sailing in July with a 50% off discount,
