Jeff Horseman got into journalism because he liked to write and stunk at math. He grew up in Vermont and he honed his interviewing skills as a supermarket cashier by asking Bernie Sanders “Paper or plastic?” After graduating from Syracuse University in 1999, Jeff began his journalistic odyssey at The Watertown Daily Times in upstate New York, where he impressed then-U.S. Senate candidate Hillary Clinton so much she called him “John” at the end of an interview. From there, he went to Annapolis, Maryland, where he covered city, county and state government at The Capital newspaper. Today, Jeff writes about anything and everything. Along the way, Jeff has covered wildfires, a tropical storm, 9/11 and the Dec. 2 terror attack in San Bernardino. If you have a question or story idea about politics or the inner workings of government, please let Jeff know. He’ll do his best to answer, even if it involves a little math.

Now company doctors can also “roll up their sleeves”: After the anti-corona vaccination campaign is gaining momentum in Germany, large corporations such as SAP or BMW have begun to vaccinate their employees in specially established in-house vaccination centers. The software group SAP started on Monday in Walldorf in Baden-Württemberg with about 300 vaccinations and will administer about 1,100 doses this week, as SAP company doctor Torsten Paul said on Monday. This figure could even amount to up to 11,000 vaccinations per week – this depends solely on the availability of the vaccines: “We are very pleased that the vaccination readiness here at SAP is over 95 percent. The 1,100 vaccination appointments we have for this week were fully booked in less than two seconds on our company website. Now we are in the starting blocks and are prepared for the big rush. And we hope that we can offer even more dates in the next few weeks.”The BMW car group also officially started vaccinations at the company doctor in Munich on Monday, under the eyes of Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder. He praised this approach. According to the federal government, around 80 percent of the adult population in Germany should be vaccinated by mid-July.
