    A slim majority of Americans back the Senate convicting former President Donald Trump at his impeachment trial for inciting an insurrection, new polling found.   A CBS News/YouGov survey that was released Tuesday found that 56 per cent of Americans believe Trump should be convicted, with the same percentage saying the ex-president encouraged violence at the Capitol.  Polling on the matter falls in line with party preference, with just 8 per cent of Trump's 2020 voters believing he should be convicted, as well as 17 per cent of survey respondents who said they were Republicans.  A majority of Americans believe President Donald Trump should be convicted by the Senate and believe he was responsible for the violence at the Capitol Building, but the number of Democrats is much bigger than the number of Republicans and Trump supporters  New polling found a slim majority of Americans believe Trump should be convicted...
    School closures may do little to reduce the spread of coronavirus, a new modeling study suggests. Researchers found that preventing in-person learning only lowered the number of infections among young people by four percent in New York City. By comparison, social distancing of the entire population in public places lowered the number of cases and deaths by as much as 50 percent.  The team, from City University of Hong Kong and the Institute of Automation at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing, says its findings show how cases and fatalities can be  achieved 'without the need for so much social disruption.' Researchers from Hong Kong and Beijing looked at the impacts of the closures of various types of facilities, including schools, workplaces and public facilities in New York City in 2020.

    > The dossier: Telework, progress for all? Nearly a third of private sector employees (31%) teleworked full or part time before the Christmas holidays in December. On average, managers had opted for 3.6 days teleworked per week. This is twice as much as a year ago, says Malakoff Humanis in a study. A stable proportion The share of private sector employees who teleworked at the end of 2020 is thus stable compared to the pre-pandemic of Covid-19, since 30% of private sector employees were teleworkers in November 2019, recalls Malakoff Humanis, who is the fourth “annual barometer” on teleworking since the end of 2017.

    President Biden’s proposal to increase the FY 2021 refugee resettlement ceiling to 62,500, first reported by CNN on Friday, twists and contorts the Refugee Act of 1980, which authorizes the president to set the annual refugee resettlement ceiling for each fiscal year in a letter sent to Congress the month before the fiscal year begins. The law also allows the president to increase previously established annual refugee resettlement ceilings under “emergency” circumstances after consulting with Congress. Such authority has been rarely used during the four decades the Refugee Admissions Program has been in operation. The most recently updated version of the U.S. Code Annotated (Title 8, Chapter 12, Subchapter II, Part I, § 1157) which states the law regarding the establishment of annual refugee ceilings, essentially unchanged since it was first codified in the Refugee Act of 1980, reads: §1157. Annual admission of refugees and admission of emergency situation refugees (a)...
    Experts say it is possible that the U.S. may achieve herd immunity against the coronavirus as early as July. In a video for MedPage Today, Dr Monica Gandhi, of the University of California San Francisco, said the nation will only be able to curb virus spread between vaccination coverage and natural immunity. There are currently 27 million confirmed cases of the virus, suggesting 8.2 percent of the population has been infected. But Makary and Gandhi say they believe that the true figure lies closer to 30 percent of Americans. Most experts say at least 70 people will have to be immunized or infected for the country to see true herd immunity.  Between the number of infections and the 13 percent of Americans who have already received at least one vaccine dose, Gandhi say we could see herd immunity by the summer. Dr Monica Gandhi, of the University of California...
    Although a few months ago it seemed a long way off, the vaccine (well, vaccines actually) for the coronavirus has already arrived, and now is the time to streamline its production and distribution. Pfizer and BioNtech, Moderna, AstraZeneca and many others, both those already approved and those that could be approved shortly, They promise us a 2021 full of punctures that, unless things go wrong, could make 2022 a very good year, regarding the war against the damn coronavirus. A key element of the vaccines that have arrived so far, yes, is their dosage, two doses that should be separated in time between three and four weeks. It is not news nor is it a surprise, for many months researchers and laboratories have already reported that the correct dosage was this, and clinical trials have been carried out based on this approach.

    A company called Expanscape has created the most Inspector Gadget-like device that I’ve ever seen. It’s a laptop prototype called the Aurora 7 (a working title), and attached to its humongous black box of a chassis are six extra displays that extend out in every direction away from the main screen, each showing its own windows and applications. If you’re like me, the first thought that comes to mind is “that poor hinge!” Yeah, poor hinge, indeed. Many laptop hinges don’t gracefully handle having one screen attached, let alone seven. Piggybacking on the main 17.3-inch 4K display are three other screens of the same size and resolution. Above the left and right displays is a single seven-inch 1200p monitor. You’ll also find one more seven-inch 1200p touchscreen display mounted into the wrist rest. This prototype weighs about 26 pounds and is 4.3 inches thick. It has an imposing, intimidating...
    To those watching Super Bowl LV on television, it may well appear that the event was occurring before the pandemic. Miami World / Infobae While the stadium capacity was limited to a third, there were still 22,000 people in a single stadium. Many of them were medical workers who had already been vaccinated and who received the ticket as a gift as a thank you for the hard year they faced, and they were all asked to wear masks covering their mouths and noses. However, social media was filled with videos of people hugging without a mask in and around the stadium in Tampa, Florida. Interestingly, Sunday’s data was released in Florida this morning regarding new COVID 19 infections, and the state became the first in the nation to exceed 200 cases of the new variants of the virus (especially that of the Kingdom United, South African and Brazilian)....

    (CNN)Poll of the week: A new Axios/Ipsos poll finds that 63% of adults say they have had or are likely to get the Covid-19 vaccine as soon as it's made available to them. That's the highest ever recorded by Ipsos. When given the option of getting the vaccine immediately or at a later date, 50% of Americans say they'll get it as soon as it's available compared to at a later date.

    You’ve surely seen it everywhere you’ve looked as the Super Bowl approached: “LV.” Those two letters accompany this year’s Super Bowl everywhere, because it’s Super Bowl LV. No, it’s not in Las Vegas, and what fun would that be during a global pandemic? Honestly, still probably pretty fun. Maybe not that safe, though. Regardless, you’re here to know what that “LV” means, and you probably know that it’s a number being displayed in Roman numerals. But what number? And why Roman numerals?

    A nun of the Xavières congregation, Nathalie Becquart, 52, was since 2019 “consulrix” of the synod, the assembly of bishops responsible for studying since 1965 the major doctrinal questions of the Catholic Church. Her appointment reflects the pope’s desire to promote “greater participation of women in ecclesial discernment and decision-making processes,” said the secretary general of the synod, Cardinal Mario Grech, in an interview with media from the Holy See. . “During the last synods, the number of women who participated as experts or listeners increased. With the appointment of Sister Nathalie Becquart and her possibility of participating with the right to vote, a door was opened”, added the cardinal Grech. The synod is led by “synod fathers” (bishops or cardinals) having the right to vote. It also has auditors and experts, without the right to vote. In October 2019, nuns participating in a synod dedicated to the Amazon...
    Google just revealed that it is adding heart rate and respiratory monitoring features to the Fit app on Google Pixel phones (with plans to expand to other Android phones in the future), using the smartphone cameras. As the company clarifies, these functions are only intended to allow users to perform a follow-up of your general well-being, and not an assessment or diagnosis of medical conditions. A measure that never ceases to surprise us since, currently, other companies such as Samsung have opted for the elimination of these functions in their latest phones, perhaps to make room for the increasingly capable smartwatches. In this way, taking measurements will be a very simple task. To measure the respiratory rate (the number of breaths someone takes per minute), we will have to point the front camera of the phone to locate our head and chest; while to measure the heart rate, we will...

    Britain’s Chancellor of the Exchequer is “concerned” that health technocrats are “moving the goalposts” in order to justify keeping the country locked down, reports suggest. Rishi Sunak, technically the Second Lord of the Treasury — Boris Johnson is the First — but in practice the country’s chief finance minister, is reportedly keen to see the lockdown ease as soon as possible, as small business owners and workers buckle under the strain of a third national lockdown (and, for many, multiple rounds of punishing regional lockdowns). The Chancellor is “concerned”, however, that the scientists and public health officials driving much of the government’s coronavirus response are “moving the goalposts” in order to justify staying locked down, according to a source who confided in the Telegraph. “Rishi remains where he has been throughout the pandemic – he is pro opening as quickly and as safely as possible,” said the source, described by...

    By Sarah Rankin | Associated Press RICHMOND, Va. — The Virginia Senate passed a bill Wednesday that would abolish the death penalty, a measure that if passed into law would mark a major policy change for a state that has historically led the nation in the number of executions it has carried out. The Democrat-controlled chamber approved the bill on a 21-17 vote, which came after a lengthy, emotional floor debate. “I cannot think of anything that is more awful, unspeakable and wrong for a government to do, than to use its power to execute somebody who didn’t commit the crime they’re accused of. The problem with capital punishment is that once it’s inflicted you can’t take it back, it can’t be corrected,” Sen. Scott Surovell, the bill’s sponsor, said as he introduced it. Republicans spoke against the bill, saying it wouldn’t give victims’ families a chance at justice...

    Archaeologists digging at the ancient Egyptian site Taposiris Magna unearthed 16 burials in rock-cut tombs, with one containing a mummy bearing a tongue made of gold. The team speculates that after the person's tongue was removed during embalming it was replaced with the object so the deceased could speak to Osiris in the afterlife. The burial shafts, dating back some 2,000 years, were popular in ancient Greek and Roman eras, which held remains inside of a mountain or natural rocky formation. Within the tombs were a number of mummies and although the remains have since deteriorated, the stone funeral masks are still intact - allowing the team to see what each person may have once looked like.  Scroll down for video  Archaeologists digging at the ancient Egyptian site Taposiris Magna unearthed 16 burials in rock-cut tombs, with one containing a mummy bearing a tongue made of gold The excavation...

They were able to easily identify him, the FBI said. Faulkner attended the insurrection wearing a jacket with his phone number on the back. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. One of the people who stormed the Capitol building during January's failed insurrection wore a jacket advertising his phone number on the back, according to an FBI affidavit. Troy Faulkner, who was arrested and jailed Friday on several charges, apparently attempted to overthrow the US government while wearing a jacket advertising his Ohio painting company. The fashion statement made it easy for FBI agents to identify him through public YouTube videos, according to the affidavit, which redacts the full phone number. "On the back of his jacket, there is...
    They had his number. Federal authorities identified an Ohio man as a Capitol invader by merely looking at the name and number on the jacket he was wearing while storming the Capitol and kicking in a window. As a result, Troy Faulkner, 39, now faces several federal charges. The FBI said that it saw Faulkner on a YouTube video kicking in a Capitol window. But before that happened, the defendant was facing away from the camera and his jacket was exposed. This was important because that was a jacket identifying his painting business: In the video, before jumping up on a ledge to kick in the window, FAULKNER could be seen facing away from the camera with his back turned. On the back of his jacket, there is the name of a company “FAULKNER PAINTING” and the telephone number “XXX-XXX- 6985.” Your affiant was able to confirm through the Ohio Secretary...

    By The Associated Press JERUSALEM — The Israeli Cabinet has voted to extend a nationwide lockdown for at least five more days as it struggles to bring a raging coronavirus outbreak under control. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office announced early Monday that the restrictions, which have forced nonessential businesses and most schools to remain closed for the past month, will remain in effect until at least Friday. A ban on nearly all incoming and outgoing flights will remain in effect for another week. The Cabinet is to meet on Wednesday to decide whether to extend the restrictions even longer. Israel has launched one of the world’s most aggressive vaccination campaigns, inoculating more than one-third of its population in just one month. But the vaccine has had little effect so far in controlling the outbreak, which has spread quickly with the arrival of foreign variants of the coronavirus and continued violations...
    BOSTON (CBS) – State Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr tells WBZ-TV political analyst Jon Keller that the state’s bumpy COVID-19 vaccine rollout is in part due to the lack of vaccine availability from the federal government. The second issue, according to Tarr, is that the front-end system to make an appointment for the vaccine needs is not user friendly. “One of the things that’s been concerning to us are the number of vaccines that have not gone out and there are a number of reasons for that, those are being addressed right now.

The state said that the number of people in the hospital with COVID-19 slipped below 14,850 — a drop of more than 25% in two weeks. The 18,974 new confirmed cases are about one-third the mid-December peak of 54,000. With hospitalizations and confirmed cases falling, health officials are optimistic that the worst of the latest surge is over. Deaths remain staggeringly high, however, with more than 3,800 in the last week. It took six months for California to record its first 10,000 deaths, then four months to double to 20,000. In just five more weeks the state reached 30,000. It then took only 20 days to get to 40,000. On Sunday deaths rose to...
    By The Associated Press ATHENS, Greece — Greek authorities have confirmed the first detection of the South African variant of the new coronavirus in the country, prompting top health officials to fly to the area where it was found for meetings on Sunday. The minister leading the government response to the pandemic and the head of the country’s public health body met with doctors and the local bishop in the northern city of Thessaloniki. The variant is believed to be more contagious than the original type and it was detected in a 36-year-old deacon in a suburb of the city. “We will be doing screenings to isolate the persons who have been in contact with the patient,” said Panayiotis Arkoumaneas, head of the National Public Health Organization. There have also been 173 cases of people affected with a variant first detected in the U.K., authorities said Sunday. Authorities announced 484...
    After just one week in the White House, the Biden administration is already buckling under the pressure from the coronavirus pandemic as officials are still yet to locate the 20million COVID-19 vaccine doses distributed to the states last month.   A Politico report on Saturday painted a picture of what officials have described as a messy transition for the Biden team that has been confronted with a worse-than-expected situation on all fronts.  Prior to taking office, Biden had promised to tackle the pandemic with an effective COVID-19 response plan and later announced a rather ambitious goal to inoculate 100million Americans in his first 100 days.  But the president and his team have since found themselves floundering and grappling to keep the virus under control while simultaneously dealing with a vaccine shortage.  The team is also still trying track down the 20million doses that were...
    (CNN)Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is doing everything possible to save the filibuster now that Republicans have lost control of the upper chamber. This rule allows senators to keep speaking on the floor to delay or block legislation that has majority support. The only way to stop a filibuster is for a certain number of senators to vote to invoke "cloture," which today requires a supermajority of 60 votes — a high threshold that is rarely reached. Julian ZelizerDemocrats, who hold 50 seats in the Senate along with Vice President Kamala Harris' tie-breaking vote, are eager to push through big-ticket items on President Joe Biden's agenda, from legislation that tackles climate change to Covid-19 relief. Wary that Republicans will use the filibuster to block everything they bring to the floor, a growing number of Democrats now support doing away with this "Jim Crow relic," as former President Obama once called...
    THE EU flag has been taken off British driving licences and car number plates and replaced with the Union Jack. But motorists will still be able to use the new-look document to drive on the continent. 2Number plates carrying the EU flag will soon be a thing of the past Scare stories that UK licences would become invalid after Brexit have been nailed as a myth. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has struck a deal with the 27 EU states to avoid the need to obtain a £5.50 international driving permit. Holidaymakers will also be able to drive their cars in Europe if it has the new reg plate with the Union Jack and GB on it. While existing licences and reg plates will still be valid, the new versions — which mark a year since Brexit — will be issued to everyone renewing a licence or getting their first one....

    Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden will soon reveal the membership and agenda of a commission that would take the first modern-day look at reforming the Supreme Court, according to officials familiar with the commission. The move comes as liberals are calling for additional seats to balance out the conservative-dominated bench that is increasingly going to the right on abortion, immigration, voting rights and religious freedom cases. Biden first proposed a presidential commission as a candidate last October, partly as an alternative to immediate "court packing" demands from Democrats, as proposals for more seats on the nine-member bench are dubbed. Another idea that scholars have raised in recent years, and could be under consideration, is term limits for the justices, who currently enjoy life tenure. Trump transformed the Supreme Court that mostly helped advance his agendaLiberals pressing for dramatic change are trying to generate a sense of urgency by emphasizing just...
    You look at the food bank lines and you know it's true. It hasn’t been hard to see some of the ways the coronavirus pandemic has made inequality worse in the United States, from healthcare inequities and racial disparities in who has gotten sick and who has lived and died, to the way many retail companies saw profits rise—then poured that money into stock buybacks while stiffing workers on hazard pay—to women, and especially women of color, being forced out of the paid workforce. But don’t expect it to end there. Oxfam surveyed 295 economists from 79 countries on the pandemic’s impact on inequality that they are seeing and expect to see going forward. Nearly nine out of 10 of them—87%—said there will be an increase in income inequality, while 78% predicted a rise in wealth inequality, 66% predicted a rise in racial inequality, and 56% predicted a rise in gender inequality. Two...
    New mutant variants of the coronavirus could be running rampant undetected in the US due to a low level of genetic sequencing on positive COVID tests in the country, health officials say.  There are now more than 350 reported cases of 'super-covid' in the US from the three strains that were first detected in Brazil, UK, and South Africa.  However, health officials say it is very likely that the number of new variants circulating around the country is much higher since viruses by nature are constantly mutating as they spread. Some mutations can be detrimental to a virus, causing it to die out, but it's the fact that some can be more fatal, or even resistant to vaccines, that is cause for concern.  Scientists are typically able to monitor different strains through genetic sequencing which allows them to examine the virus from active cases and study how the particular strain...
    Vince McMahon said it best: It’s all about the money. Certainly in the closing stages of his career, Ben Roethlisberger is entering the last year of his current contract with the Steelers, and many are expecting “Big Ben” to return to the Steel City for at least one more season. There is, however, a massive hurdle to clear in order to make that happen, one that may cause player and team to grapple this offseason: the money he’s owed. “Ben wants to come back,” team president Art Rooney II said in his end-of-season Zoom call. “We’ve left that door open. I think we’ve been up front with Ben in letting him know that we couldn’t have him back under the current contract. I think he understands we have some work to do there. “We’ll have more conversations internally, and we’ll have more conversations with Ben, and we’ll have to know what...
    New York's Attorney General has accused the Cuomo administration of undercounting the number of people who died from COVID-19 in nursing homes by as much as 50 percent.  In a report released on Thursday, AG Letitia James said that the New York State Health Department only ever counted people who physically died in nursing homes, rather than people who contracted the disease in nursing homes but then died in hospital too.  According to the state department's data, 8,500 people died have from COVID in nursing homes to date. But when using the Attorney General's estimate that 50 percent more died, that number goes up to more than 12,000.  The report also says that Cuomo's March directive that nursing homes had to accept COVID-19 positive patients 'may' have contributed to a higher number of infection, but that it is impossible to directly attribute it to him.  Instead, her office is focusing on...
    Tom Brady was prepared to make a change if necessary when he joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the 2020 offseason: play out the year with a new number. Brady had played as No. 12 throughout his entire career with the New England Patriots and built a successful business off of that -- TB12. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Coming into the season, wide receiver Chris Godwin had that number. Godwin said in March that if Brady didn’t want the number he was  going to keep it, but "I think just out of respect for what he's done, what he's accomplished, just kind of the career he's built for himself… You've got to kind of lean into that respect." Buccaneers general manager Jason Licht opened up Wednesday about Brady changing his number. Licht told NBC Sports’ Peter King of his conversation with Brady.

    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...

    Tom Brady will be wearing his classic No. 12 jersey when the Bucs face the Chiefs in Super Bowl 55, but he was willing to change. When Brady arrived in Tampa Bay, there was already a player wearing that number. And it wasn’t some random player — it was Pro Bowl receiver Chris Godwin. While Godwin may have been able to force the issue to keep his jersey number, he kindly allowed Brady to wear 12 as he opted to wear 14. While Brady accepted, he was also willing to change.

    Q: You asked if any readers had something positive to say about the Interstate 880 toll lanes. Yes, I do. The conversion of carpool or HOV lanes to toll lanes has the very positive effect of drastically reducing the number of HOV lane cheaters. Previously, it was nearly impossible to catch cheaters due to darkened windows, lack of enforcement, and the ability to easily jump in and out of the HOV lane. But express lanes require the use of FasTrak transponders, and license plate recognition cameras at frequent intervals record and bill vehicles using the lanes. Also, double white lines prevent (or at least reduce) lane hopping. Sure, you can jump into a toll lane without FasTrak, but then you get charged as a single driver via license plate recognition. So cheat all you want, but be ready when that bill arrives! Mike Harrigan, San Jose Like Mr. Roadshow’s Facebook...

    Getty 'Survivor' contestant Kelly Wiglesworth attends the 'Survivor: Thailand Castaways: Finale and Reunion Show' A lot of Survivor fans always thought that the reason Kelly Wiglesworth lost season one of the show was because Greg Buis asked her and fellow finalist Richard Hatch to pick a number between one and 10 at the final Tribal Council and that’s what determined his vote. Wiglesworth would then go on to lose to Hatch by a vote of four to three. But in a recent interview, Wiglesworth revealed a rather shocking bit of information she learned during the live finale as to why she actually lost.

    BEIJING — Chinese airlines are offering refunded tickets as the coronavirus continues to spread in the country’s northeast.

    London (CNN)People in the United Kingdom have been living under lockdown for the past three weeks, hoping their sacrifice would bring the country's latest coronavirus surge -- caused by the new, more contagious variant of the virus -- under control. But despite the harsh restrictions, case numbers are not dropping as fast as experts have hoped. Deaths continue to rise and public health experts and government are starting to warn people that the country will be in this battle for the long run.The new variant, known as B.1.1.7, has wreaked havoc in the UK, fueling a surge in cases towards the end of 2020 despite a national lockdown being in place. Data showing an uptick in cases in younger people suggests this was largely because schools had stayed open, enabling the variant to spread rapidly.
