UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA SHOOTING-MENTAL HEALTH

Police awoke Indiana State athletic director Sherard Clinksdale early on Aug. 21 with tragic news. Two of the university’s football players, and another student, had died in a car accident. Clinksdale immediately began devising a plan to console and support the teammates and friends of the deceased teenagers. “There is no playbook for something like this,” Clinksdale said. But those who have experienced the unexpected death of a college athlete under their supervision say the increased emphasis on mental health care in athletic departments and universities at large — spurred in part by the pandemic and lessons learned from other tragedies — helps when responding to a crisis.

LOCALIZATION:

DISASTERS BY COUNTY-LOCALIZE IT — Ninety percent of the counties in the United States suffered a weather disaster between 2011 and 2021, according to a report published Wednesday. Researchers had access to data from contractors who work closely with the Federal Emergency Management Agency, allowing them to analyze disasters and payouts down to the county level. The report includes some 250 maps. They also looked at who is most vulnerable and compared how long people in different places are left without power after extreme weather. We show you where to find the data and offer reporting tips.

COP27-CITY TREES-LOCALIZE IT — Cities worldwide have promised to plant more carbon-absorbing trees to help fight climate change. Research has shown the shade from mature trees also helps reduce unhealthful “heat islands,” especially in poor neighborhoods. President Joe Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act infused $1.5 billion into the Forest Service’s urban tree program — money for cities to do more planting and maintenance. But life in a city can be especially hard for a tree, and those challenges are escalating with global warming. We offer ideas and resources for localizing the story.
