Are coronaviruses bioweapons of bats?

by Janice Nigro If you had asked me a month ago what I knew about bats, I would have said, “They are the only flying mammals on Earth.” That’s it. While the world has been spinning out of control in the last two months over the Covid-19 pandemic, I have spent a portion of my... Continue Reading →

The Lockdown Diaries: Enlightenment

by Janice Nigro I’ve been doing my part during the lockdown. Staying indoors for most of my days. Fooling myself that I am doing some exercise in 500 square feet of space. Working on my projects.
