"From the CDC dog ban—a real crisis for our members with beloved canine companions." A facebook closed group opposing the CDC dog has been created. The group is made up of many of the dogs rescues being directly affected by the overhyped, US rabies hysteria charade being promoted and supported by a member of the CDC whose background is rabies.

The Arctic is a geopolitical hotspot and strengthening the U.S. presence in the Arctic is a foreign policy priority. To that end, in June 2020, U.S. diplomats reopened the U.S. Consulate in Nuuk, Greenland, 67 years after it had been closed. The American Foreign Service Association's "Diplomats at Work" is hosting Eavan Cully, the public affairs officer at U.S. Consulate Nuuk, to hear about her experience working to reopen a long-shuttered consulate in what is now a city that is becoming a center for Arctic issues. They will discuss the reopening as well as life and work in Greenland for a young U.S. diplomat. There will be opportunities for Q&A. The event is open to the public.
