In March, he, his students and his family wrote letters to local hospital workers, and they started getting responses back.

“I talked with a couple and told them if you’d ever want to tell your story, I would be glad to hear it,” said Tuccio, a social studies teacher for Jamestown Public Schools.

He posted on Facebook, asking people if they wanted to be interviewed. The post was shared more than 100 times. 

Tuccio talked to some by phone but soon realized it would be too time-consuming to interview each person individually, so he made a questionnaire for them to fill out. He

Best Albums of 2020 | Time

Despite—or perhaps because of—everything, 2020 has been the ultimate year for albums. The one thing many of us were newly blessed with, amid all of the difficulties of this year, was stretches of time: to sit, to think, to listen. And artists delivered, with projects rich in subtext, excising anger, pain and loneliness. Some helped us to find joy, offering up celebration, creativity and sensuality. Whether released before the world changed or after, the albums that stuck with us—from Afrobeat projects to dystopian fantasies to the long-awaited return of a beloved American trio—hit their mark as worlds into which to disappear when we most needed refuge.

Below, the 10 albums we’ve loved living with in 2020. Also read TIME’s lists of the 10 best fiction books, nonfiction books, YA and children’s books, podcasts, songs, TV shows, movies and video games of 2020.

In March 2020, the pandemic hit the health of the Portuguese, as well as their pockets. Layoffs, dismissals, situations of serious economic individual crisis, were all the cause of concern for a group of Swedish people who wanted to make a difference in the world.

The problems facing Portugal led to the creation of Food & Supplies Lagos, an organisation able to support the needs of Portuguese most affected by the crisis.

Following a few conversations at the Clube de Ténis e Padel de Lagos, the group began to share ideas about the catastrophic situation that was going on in Portugal, namely in Lagos, with many people losing their incomes. From these concerns, an associative movement arose to feed people in serious need situations. In Lagos the predominant economic activity, direct and indirectly, is tourism, which suffered big

Although art galleries in which to display her work are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, artist Doris Arellano Manzo is reinventing the painting of sports shoes with an eye toward México’s traditional Day of the Dead.

“Since I love painting, I can paint for you a big canvas in a small format. When I’m here with my paints and brushes I’m in heaven; an artist’s work is like being a little closed off. We go out when there are expositions when you have to show up in public or for interviews,” she said.

Living in the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca, she said that, as an artist, she can’t just sit around and, as she talked to EFE, she decorated the side of a tennis shoe with a dark Catrina – the
