All that stands between the reeling Rockies and the abyss is shortstop Trevor Story. But Story can’t save our Bad News Denver Bears, stumbling out of the gate so ineptly they seem bent on being mathematically eliminated from the playoffs before the calendar flips from April to May.

More than a year since its beginning, the true origin of the COVID-19 pandemic is still unknown, but investigations into the matter have uncovered new questions about a scientific practice known as “gain-of-function” research. Most of the scientific community still contends that the novel coronavirus wreaking havoc on the world is of natural origin . Others argue gain-of-function (GoF) research may have potentially played a role, though, and critics have warned for years the field was dangerous enough to cause a pandemic.
