The vast majority of Covid-19 infections were still confined to China, and the United States had confirmed just one death. Sporting events, bars and restaurants teemed with life.

    By David Shepardson and Nandita Bose (Reuters) - Amazon.com's new chief executive, Andy Jassy, who joined the company in 1997 and has overseen its fast-growing cloud computing business, says the key to long-term success is reinvention. "You want to be reinventing when you are healthy, you want to be reinventing all the time," Jassy, 53, said in December at a company forum. "You have got to be manancial and relentless and tenacious about getting to the truth.... You have to know what's working and what's not working." He cited Netflix's decision to cannibalize its own DVD rental business in favor of streaming.

    For almost half a century, New York City held the title for the world’s tallest building. Between 1931 and 1972, the iconic Empire State Building remained the highest — standing at 1,454 feet tall. But those days are long gone.  China is slowly overtaking the world with massive high-rise property developments that house financial institutions, retail and residences. In many instances, ghost cities in China are on the rise, with many developed buildings remaining vacant. In the past 10 years alone, China has amassed more than 300 new skyscrapers. Of those, 5 out of 10 make up the tallest building structures in the world.  But the country has yet to claim the No. 1 spot. That title goes to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which soars a grand 2,717 feet.  Overall, for the first time in three decades, high- and mid-rise apartments are overshadowing low-rises.

    Two patients in Brazil have tested positive for more than one strain of coronavirus at the same time in what is believed to be the world's first double Covid infection.  Researchers at Feevale University made the discovery after swabbing 90 infected people in Rio Grande do Sul, southern Brazil.  One of the patients tested positive for two Brazilian strains which evolved separately in different states, known as P.1 and P.2.  P.1 has caused international alarm because it appears to be somewhat resistant to vaccines, which has led to Britain banning all travel from South America. Another patient tested positive for P.2 and the B.1.91 strain, which first appeared in Sweden, at the same time.   Fernando Spilki, the lead researcher on the study, said he feared the co-infections would 'generate combinations and generate new variants even more quickly'. Dr John McCauley, director of the Worldwide Influenza Centre at the Francis Crick...
    You can blame Microsoft Flight Simulator for the flight stick shortage we’re experiencing. Logitech, Thrustmaster, and many of the big name manufacturers are out of stock everywhere you look. What little product is actually available — even used equipment — is going for wildly inflated prices. Still other manufacturers are taking pre-orders, and then banging out new units as quickly as they can. So what’s a budding flight or space sim enthusiast to do? My advice, of course, is to give the scalpers a wide berth. If you’re stuck on Microsoft Flight Simulator — especially the big commercial airliners — give Honeycomb Aeronautical a try. If you’re playing a more hardcore flight simulator, like something from the DCS World portfolio, you probably already know about VKB. Its high-end equipment is currently in stock. But, if you’re looking to spend a relatively modest amount of money on a more general purpose...

    AIDS has claimed more than 33million lives and its causative agent, the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), has thus far proved impossible to find a vaccine for.  Drugs which prevent transmission of the virus and squash symptoms are now readily available in many countries, but 1.7 million people became infected with HIV in 2019.  Professor Jacques Pepin, an epidemiologist at Université de Sherbrooke in Canada, has been trying to discover the origin of HIV for decades, since his time as a GP in Zaire (today the Democratic Republic of Congo) in the 1980s. Previous studies found the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) in chimps first crossed over into humans in South-East Cameroon at the start of the 20th century.  Simian immunodeficiency virus can be fatal to chimps and is exactly the same as HIV, the only difference between the two is the host it lives inside.  HIV is an example of zoonotic...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami/CNN) — Thanks in part to shark attacks reported in Florida, the US was once again the shark attack capital of the world in 2020. Last year, the US reported 33 unprovoked shark attacks, accounting for about 58% of the total number of unprovoked shark attacks that occurred worldwide, according to the Yearly World Shark Attack Summary from the International Shark Attack File (ISAF). This is a decrease from 2019, when 64% of the global unprovoked bites occurred in the US. ISAF categorizes shark attacks by first deciding if they were provoked or unprovoked. “Unprovoked attacks are defined as incidents in which an attack on a live human occurs in the shark’s natural habitat with no human provocation of the shark,” ISAF said. “Provoked attacks occur when a human initiates interaction with a shark in some way. These include instances when divers are bitten after harassing or trying to...
