    At 6am the blaring sound of the national anthem wakes Alexei Navalny in his prison bunk.  Russia’s best-known political prisoner dons an ill-fitting black uniform and begins a day designed, like every moment of his nine-year sentence, to inflict exhaustion and humiliation. The worst thing about jail, says his loyal aide Kira Yarmysh, is that ‘everyone there has to be occupied all day long so you don’t have any free time’. A fiercely intelligent, eloquent lawyer, Navalny’s days are filled with menial tasks — sewing and shovelling snow. A small plastic sign on his bunk designates him as a terrorist, liable to indoctrinate other prisoners and forbidden to socialise with them.

Christian Cabrera, 40, of California, who went by the social media handle and stage name of 'Chinese Best Friend,' tested positive for COVID-19 sometime after Christmas.

If I could do it all over again I would do it in a heartbeat to save my life.'  Cabrera died on January 14 after succumbing to pneumonia from both lungs caused by the coronavirus, a day after making the regretful Instagram post where he wished he had gotten vaccinated.   Pictured: Christian Cabrera, 40, of California, as he lay in the ICU with an oxygen mask affixed to his face after contracting COVID 19 after Christmas...
