    New York : We all want to lose weight, as quickly as possible. Without a doubt when we start this path, one of the most relevant concepts is the calories, which have aroused enormous interest in their impact on health and silhouette. It is well known that the balance between the calories that are ingested and those that are expended is one of the nutritional balances most important and the body weight depends on it. The formula is simpler than we think, when the caloric income correspond to expenses, the weight is maintained. When they exceed the expense, the weight increases. The amount of calories your body uses to perform these basic functions is known as basal metabolism, is the process by which the body converts what we eat and drink in energy. During this complex process, calories from food and beverages are combined with oxygen to release energy...
    Getty Zach Wilson running on the field for a bowl game. Ever since the Detroit Lions revealed they would be trading Matthew Stafford at the start of the league year for Jared Goff, predictions have calmed down about the team perhaps selecting a quarterback within 2021 mock drafts. Even though the Lions seem to need other positions more such as wideout and perhaps even linebacker, would the team make the move for a quarterback if the opportunity presented itself in April? It’s more than possible if that prospect was an elite one. Recently, on a live mock draft on The Herd With Colin Cowherd, NFL.com expert Daniel Jeremiah and Cowherd had a live mock draft. During that draft, and intriguing player managed to slip all the way down the board to Detroit’s seventh pick. When Jeremiah was on the clock with the Lions pick, somehow, BYQ quarterback Zach...
    In normal years, you watch the Golden Globes only partly for the winners. It’s a party, dahling, and with the champagne flowing and Hollywood’s brightest stars crowded around the tables. It’s the people-watching that makes the Globes so much fun. Alas, fun is in quarantine during the age of COVID-19, or, at least, the kind of fun like we used to know. Still, the 78th annual Golden Globes will take place — virtually — and if the lesson of the Emmys last fall holds true, it can still be a night worth watching as hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler return and nominees beam in from hither and yon. So, what are we looking for this year? Read on for the Top 5 topics of note the Golden Globes this year. 1.

    When the new fiscal year begins in July, Metro will face a budget gap so big that it’s asking customers to consider some pretty serious service cuts. “The process is underway — please, please engage,” Metro General Manager Paul Wiedefeld said at a Thursday board meeting. Metro’s money-saving options include the rail system shutting down at 9 p.m. instead of 11 p.m., closing 22 stations, and 30-minute intervals between trains all day, every day except some stations on the Red Line. Metrobus service would be cut to 50% of pre-pandemic levels beginning in January 2022. Riders can find all the proposed changes to bus routes on the transit system’s website. There are multiple ways to weigh in on the proposed measures. One option is to take an online survey and offer written comments. Another option is to leave comments by calling Metro’s toll-free number at 844-468-5748. Riders can also offer...
    Austin, Texas — All the groceries spoiled and the water was out for days. Then Melissa Rogers, a believer in the Texas gospel that government should know its place, woke up to a $6,000 energy bill before the snow and ice even melted. "The roads were awful, but we were running around town trying to get money from every single bank we could possibly think of," said Rogers, 36, whose Fort Worth family of four was left with $80 after the charges drained her accounts and took her husband's paycheck. Now, the emerging response to a winter catastrophe that caused one of the worst power outages in U.S. history is not the usual one in Texas: demands for more regulation. On Thursday, managers of Texas' power grid, the Electricity Reliability Council of Texas, are expected to receive a lashing in the first public hearings about the crisis at the...
    HONOLULU (AP) — Hawaii lawmakers are considering legislation to accommodate traditional Hawaiian burial practices through a technology aimed at replacing burial or traditional cremation. Supporters of water cremation promoted the alternative while members of the funeral services industry said the technique could bring higher costs, Hawaii Public Radio reported Wednesday. Traditional Hawaiian burial practices involve the preservation and protection of bones in the belief that they carry a person's spiritual essence. Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, head of the Oahu Island Burial Council, said bodies were traditionally placed in underground ovens to remove flesh from bones, which were then wrapped and hidden to preserve the bodies' spirits. Democratic state Sen. Jarrett Keohokalole introduced two bills that would allow the use of water cremation, which is also known as alkaline hydrolysis. Kawehi Correa, president of Aloha Mortuary, said the technique using pressurized water chambers leaves 90% of bones “pristinely white.” Water cremation uses an...

    Valve has released a ton of data encouraging PC developers to consider adding gamepad support to their Steam games. We already knew that PC gamers like using controllers despite some of the competitive merits of a keyboard and mouse combo, but their popularity has only grown over the years. Overall, 48 million players have used a gamepad in a Steam game, with about 10 percent of daily sessions being played on them, according to the latest stats. However, the spread across genres varies wildly, meaning controller support is seemingly better suited for certain types of PC titles over others. For instance, racing games witness a high of 90 percent of controller-based sessions, while the number drops to below 1 percent for real-time strategy (RTS) games. That’s understandable considering the precision and range of movement a mouse has over a gamepad, both of which are crucial for RTS titles.  However,...
    Chris Godwin was integral to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Super Bowl win earlier this month, but the star wide receiver is exploring all his options as he is set to become a free agent in March.  Godwin said during an appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show" on Tuesday that he wants to remain on the Bucs, and while money plays a big role in that decision, it’s not the driving factor behind whether he decides to stay or move on.  STEELERS PRESIDENT STANDS FIRM ON BEN ROETHLISBERGER’S FUTURE  "I want to be here.

    (CNN)The Pennsylvania Republican state committee is holding a meeting Wednesday night with the expectations that the issue of censuring Pennsylvania GOP Sen. Pat Toomey over his impeachment vote will be discussed. Several Republican county committees across the commonwealth have issued censure resolutions against Toomey for his vote to convict former President Donald Trump at the end of his second impeachment trial.Now, the state GOP committee is scheduled to meet virtually Wednesday evening to possibly formally censure Toomey for his guilty vote, according to three counties' chairs. CNN has reached out to the Pennsylvania Republican Party for comment. A formal rebuke from the state GOP party would be largely symbolic and come at little cost to Toomey, who had already announced he does not plan to run for reelection in 2022. But it would serve as the latest reminder of the enormous influence Trump continues to yield in the party, and...
              Members of the Tennessee Senate State and Local Government Committee on Tuesday voted to advance Senate Bill 29 to allow first responders to live where they choose, allowing the bill to be placed on the calendar Thursday for the Senate.

The lawmaker said, in particular, it will help Tennessee address a deficit of police officers occurring throughout the country. “This bill will support our police, fire officers, and emergency medical service workers who keep us safe by allowing them to live where they choose,” said Kelsey. “This...
    (CNN) — Vaccine advisers to the US Food and Drug Administration will meet Friday to discuss whether to recommend Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine for emergency use authorization.

    During the past year, when covid-19 hit our country, motorcycles became a key element in combating infections, as many people opted for these vehicles to move and get away from public transport and others took advantage of the boom in deliveries to home, generated by confinement, to self-employment, which helped to sharply increase sales. Despite this, the issue of prevention continues to be of concern, because, according to the Mexican Association of Insurance Institutions (AMIS), only one in 10 motorcycles is insured, which has a direct impact on the finances of Mexican families. Many of those who acquired a motorcycle may consider a policy of this type as an economic burden, since they are usually more expensive than those of a car; however, it is a financial protection mechanism, since in an accident it can lead to loss of assets. According to the World Health Organization (WHO),...
    MOUNTAIN VIEW — A community of rent-controlled apartments built in the 1960s could soon get a facelift and new neighbors as the city council on Tuesday weighs a proposal to overhaul the site, get rid of parking lots and add new housing. First proposed in 2015, the project by AvalonBay Communities aims to completely transform the typical mid-century suburban apartment complex at 555 West Middlefield Road into a modern community of over 700 homes complete with a public park at its center.

    New York Giants: 3 pass rushers to consider in free agency By: Alexander Wilson February 22, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants suffered significant injuries at the OLB position in 2020. Both starters Lorenzo Carter and Oshane Ximines suffered season-ending injuries, as Carter tore his Achilles against the Dallas Cowboys and Ximines suffered a shoulder injury which kept him out for a majority of the season. Coordinator Patrick Graham was forced to utilize reserve options, including late-round draft pick Carter Coughlin and practice squad pass rusher Jabaal Sheard. While the Giants’ pass rush still managed to produce 40+ sacks, they lacked an elite presence on the outside to give more support to their interior defense. This off-season presents a solid opportunity for them to acquire a quality OLB they will upgrade the unit, especially with two of their starters coming off serious injuries. ...

    1 / PERFORMANCE SHIFT Rising US Treasury yields have so far done nothing but shake equity markets from their all-time highs. This will change if “real” returns – adjusted for inflation – take off. It was the crash in real yields last year that sent the money flowing into stocks; Although they were expensive, they seemed like a good deal compared to the actual returns of minus 1%. But the government’s big spending plans and economic reopening prospects have lifted real 30-year Treasury yields to eight-month highs, just 11 basis points from 0%. Real ten-year returns are at five-week highs. There is little consensus on when returns will become a problem for equities. But some assets are already taking the hit: Gold, for example, struggles to compete with income-generating investments when yields rise and is down 6% this year.

    CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — More than 20 years after it was installed, the University of Northern Iowa is pushing plans to replace the UNI-Dome’s fabric roof. The estimated $7 million to $8 million project was advanced by the Iowa Board of Regents’ property and facilities committee earlier this week, The Courier reported. Regents are expected to approve the plan at a meeting Wednesday. Michael Hager, UNI’s senior vice president for finance and operations, told the committee that the project would replace only the fabric center portion of the roof of that stadium that opened in 1976.

Minor repairs were done last year, but a consultant advised that it needs to be completely replaced by 2024. “That...

Until that study is complete, I’ll use the language we’ve previously used, which was to say, an advanced threat persistent threat actor likely of Russian origin was responsible.” Neuberger said nine federal agencies and roughly 100 private sector...

    SAN FRANCISCO (BCN/CBS SF) — The proposed four-year extension of 150-foot SkyStar Observation Wheel in Golden Gate Park faces another hurdle Wednesday, when the San Francisco Historic Preservation Commission will review the Recreation and Park Department’s request for a certificate of appropriateness. Installed last fall to honor the park’s 150th anniversary, the Ferris wheel is scheduled to be removed in March. It only operated for five weeks before it was closed because of COVID-19 restrictions. Recreation and Park is proposing to extend the SkyStar Observation Wheel’s stay until March 1, 2023, to “offset financial hardship experienced by the vendor” and to March 1, 2025, to reinvigorate the city’s post-pandemic economy.

    DENVER (CBS4)– Travelers flying in and out of Denver are listening to reports about the potential of a COVID-19 testing requirement for domestic air travel. The White House said as of now, a testing requirement is not in the works. (credit: CBS) “I’d be OK with that. It’s a minor inconvenience. The fact is, if you’re positive for COVID you probably shouldn’t be on the plane anyway,” said traveler Dave Donahower, who arrived back in the United States from Spain after getting a test, required for international travelers heading to the U.S. “It doesn’t dissuade us from travelling.” RELATED: Colorado Education Association Responds To New CDC Guidelines: We Need Resources But others see it as a threat to the return to air travel. “It’s going to totally kill the industry,” said domestic traveler William Bryant, who had just arrived from Phoenix. “Until they try it we won’t know,...
    DUBLIN — Attorneys for Alameda County have been given 15 days to respond to allegations by a local attorney that COVID-19 restrictions at Santa Rita Jail are impeding on lawyers’ ability to hold private meetings with their clients. The problem is two-fold, according to a legal petition filed this week by attorney Daniel Shriro: for the first 14 days after they’re arrested, people incarcerated at Santa Rita are placed on quarantine and disallowed from meeting face-to-face with their attorneys. After the 14 days are up, many local attorneys have refused to visit the jail out of fear that they will catch the virus, leading to further complications. Jail staff have attempted to mitigate the problem by allowing for phone visits and video chats on tablet devices, but Shriro’s petition calls into question whether those are truly confidential. He cited multiple instances from his own cases where the inability to meet...
    He’s a pass rusher, a veteran, a future Hall of Famer. J.J. Watt is on the open market, agreeing to part ways Friday with the Houston Texans and available to the highest bidder. He’s got 101 career sacks and the Raiders are desperate for a pass rusher. Watt had just five sacks in 2020, but played almost every snap and graded out well in terms of analytics. He’s a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year. The Raiders have a salary cap to contend with, as they are projected to be $18.9 million over according to overthecap.com. But room can be created with a few strokes of the pen, with $11.6 million assumed by wide receiver Tyrell Williams coming right off the top when he is released. Williams’ impending release, reported by NFL Media, was a foregone conclusion. Other potential reductions belong to Trent Brown ($14...
    Dear Moneyist, Due to the 2020 global pandemic my wife and I have been concerned about indoor exposure to others. We are fortunate enough that we can work from home so we are always here, and no one else is allowed in our home. Because of this, we have tried to make arrangements to be out of the house when our housekeeper comes to clean. This isn’t always possible so over the year, we asked that she skip cleaning our house on the days when we were home. Understanding that times are tough, we have continued to send her payment for the weeks where we asked her to stay home. My question is this: Because we gave her money but no work was done, should she consider this income or a gift? While it doesn’t change my taxes any, it would definitely affect hers. Would it help...
    The open borders lobby is urging President Joe Biden’s administration to consider releasing nearly every illegal alien in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody. A group of 120 open borders organizations — including the American Immigration Lawyers Association, Catholic Migration Services, Center for American Progress, and United We Dream — are asking Biden’s administration to implement an ICE review process that would “reconsider the custody determination for every person currently” in the agency’s custody. There are currently more than 14,000 detainees in ICE custody. “We are heartened by the early steps the Biden-Harris Administration has taken to reorient the U.S. immigration system toward a framework that embraces human rights and compassion,” the letter states: However, we are concerned that these policies have not yet been implemented in a meaningful or systemic way with regard to the approximately 14,000 people in ICE detention. Leaving behind the thousands who continue to suffer...
    A number of mostly former Republican officials are discussing how to move the party forward in the aftermath of the Trump presidency, raising the possibility of a formal split from the GOP, according to two people leading the discussions.  Reuters first reported that dozens of these party faithful are in talks to form an anti-Trump third party. Two of the leaders, Evan McMullin, a former chief policy director for the House Republican Conference who ran for president in 2016 as an independent, and Miles Taylor, a former Trump administration Homeland Security official, told CBS News that that a decision on this has not been made yet. The discussions may also result in creating a faction within the GOP. The group holding the talks consists of current and former elected officials, some from the past four Republican presidential administrations, as well as GOP leaders at the state and national level.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/BCN) — San Francisco’s motorists may have to start pumping their brakes more frequently when driving in the Tenderloin, which could become the city’s first neighborhood to reduce the speed of traffic to 20 mph in order to abate vehicle collisions. The proposed rule changes would reduce the speed limit from 25 to 20 mph, in addition to barring right turns on red in many intersections in the neighborhood, which has been plagued by frequent collisions. According to the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, all of the streets in the Tenderloin are in what the city considers its High Injury Network, which identifies 13% of San Francisco’s streets that have 75%of its severe traffic collisions and fatalities. The SFMTA’s Board of Directors will vote on approving the speed reduction proposal on March 16, and if the directors pass it, the rule will be implemented in April. The...

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are Super Bowl Champs for the second time in franchise history, but that might have been different if head coach Bruce Arians listened to the advice of family and friends.  Arians told The Los Angeles Times in an article published Wednesday that his wife, Christine, had asked him to seriously consider opting out of the season because of his age and health, both of which made him high risk.

    New York Giants: Kyle Pitts not the only tight end draft choice to consider By: Anthony Rivardo February 8, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants are focusing on improving their offense this offseason. Heading into the 2020 regular season, fans were fairly optimistic about the future of the Giants’ offense. There was a lot of excitement surrounding players such as Saquon Barkley, Darius Slayton, and Evan Engram. Unfortunately, Barkley tore his ACL in Week 2 and missed most of the season. Darius Slayton struggled to stand out consistently and seems to have fallen into a secondary wide receiver role. Tight end Evan Engram was expected to have a big breakout season. This was the first year where Evan Engram was able to stay healthy and play in all sixteen games. Unfortunately, Engram did not break through the ceiling as most fans expected him to....
    Getty The Ultimate Fighter season one alum and longtime UFC fan favorite Chris Leben had a storybook ending to his combat sports career last Friday, however he’s seemingly prepared to write another chapter should the right opportunity present itself. “The Crippler” fought in the UFC for nearly a decade, fighting the likes of Anderson Silva, Wanderlei Silva and Michael Bisping. Leben (22-12) retired from mixed martial arts in 2013 after his loss to Uriah Hall at UFC 168, and around five years later, he transitioned to the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship (BKFC). He went 3-1 as a bare-knuckle boxer, with all his wins coming via KO or TKO. In what was billed as the last fight of his combat sports career, Leben took on Quentin Henry during BKFC Knucklemania on February 5. It was a wild brawl, and in typical Crippler fashion, Leben knocked out Henry in the...
    February 8, 2021 5 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Most advice for aspiring entrepreneurs these days pays homage to the notion that they must get “out of the building” and talk to potential customers. Whether they subscribe to design thinking, lean startup, agile, or a similar school of thought, the argument goes that the only way you will know if you are creating something that people will end up paying money for is by asking them. Makes sense, right? Well, yes and no. Advocates of involving customers are correct in claiming that only the customer knows what she truly wants, so asking them seems like a no-brainer. Of course, not all of that knowledge is readily communicable as some of it often lies in the subconscious. As such, each of these approaches provides a useful means by which the entrepreneur can...

But Democrat Rita Hart is contesting the result with the Democratic-led House of Representatives, which has the final say on contested elections.

    The Supreme Court on Friday listed several high profile election lawsuits for consideration at its mid-February conference. The cases include challenges to the 2020 election from Trump lawyers Lin Wood and Sydney Powell, as well as Republican Rep. Mike Kelly's Pennsylvania lawsuit. Nearly every lawsuit takes issue with the expanded use of mail-in ballots by many states. The decision came after the court declined to fast track all election-related litigation in early January. In nearly every plea for expedition, lawyers backing former President Donald Trump told the court that if the cases were not heard before President Biden's inauguration, their success would be unlikely. But after the court pushed them off, many lawyers said that the challenges were still important, and could have long-term implications for election fairness. Trump lawyer John Eastman told the Washington Examiner that even with Trump out of office, it was important to settle...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A bid to amend the Pennsylvania Constitution to give victims of child sexual abuse a new legal window to sue over otherwise time-barred allegations got new life Thursday, days after the disclosure of a paperwork error threw it into disarray. Rep. Mark Rozzi, D-Berks, told colleagues during a state House session that Republican leaders in both chambers were working with him and he hoped to get the proposed amendment on the spring primary ballot through a rarely used emergency process allowed in the constitution. “We’ll be able to pass a standalone quickly and get this on the May ballot as originally intended,” Rozzi said. Rozzi, a prime backer of the amendment who has told of his rape by a priest when he was 13, said the top-ranking senator in the GOP-majority Senate, President Pro Tempore Jake Corman, supports an emergency amendment process.

    CNN is attempting to cozy up Americans to the idea of masks sticking around for the long run, likening them in an article Wednesday to a best friend whom people “cherish and appreciate for a good, long time.” The piece addresses questions individuals who receive a vaccine for the Chinese coronavirus will likely ask. “The day has finally come. You’ve received the second dose of a Covid-19 vaccine currently on the Western market — Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech or Oxford-AstraZeneca,” the February 3 piece began. The outlet quickly threw cold water on any sense of hope of returning to a state of normalcy by making it clear that a return to pre-pandemic life is not in the imminent future. “Sorry, there is no immunity passport yet, experts told CNN. There are still safety precautions you need to follow in order to keep you, your loved ones and everyone else safe and protected from...

    On the same day legislation requiring North Carolina schools to resume full in-person learning started advancing in the state Senate, Gov. Roy Cooper said all K-12 schools in the state should allow in-person instruction. Cooper announced Tuesday updated guidance on the state's school reopening plan to allow students in fifth through 12th grade to attend in-person classes under the state's Plan B, with smaller classes to allow for more social distancing. K-5 schools can have full classes, and students who want to stay home can continue remote learning conducted by teachers who are at high risk for severe COVID-19 complications. "This pandemic has tested us in different ways, but our educators and school staff have never stopped showing up for our students," Cooper said. "Our teachers have worked to engage our students, whether remotely or in-person. Our custodial staff has worked to keep schools clean and safe." ...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada officials will consider next month whether to rename McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas after former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada. The Clark County Commission, which is composed entirely of Democrats, is set to consider the proposal at a Feb. 16 meeting. Reid, a Democrat and the former Senate Majority Leader, retired from the Senate in 2016. There have been longstanding calls to rename the airport from its current namesake, former Nevada Sen. Pat McCarran. He served as one of Nevada’s senators from 1933 until his death in 1954, and was known for anti-immigrant and anti-Semitic views. The name change proposal was made Tuesday by Commissioner Tick Segerblom, the Las Vegas Sun reported. Segerblom previously made a similar proposal while serving in the Legislature but the bill fizzled out. The county commission oversees the airport and would make the final...
    Ministers should consider vaccinating children against coronavirus to protect them from getting 'long Covid', top scientists said today. Dr Anthony Costello, a paediatrician and member of Independent SAGE, warned experts are still baffled by the long-term complications of the disease, which poses little threat to youngsters.  He described children as a 'very special risk area' because there was a chance they may face effects that last for decades as a result of the mysterious illness. Children are not currently on No10's vaccine priority list because the jabs approved are only proven to block symptomatic illness and severe bouts of the disease that may prove fatal.  Youngsters barely get ill and statisticians have calculated they face a greater risk of being hit by lightning than dying of Covid. Dr Costello said studies the Government should consider vaccinating children to protect them from long Covid. He said studies suggested that 15 per...
    BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota lawmakers are considering adding another 6 cents to the state's 23-cent a-gallon gas tax, which hasn't been raised since 2005. The House Finance and Taxation Committee on Monday endorsed the hike to help pay for improvements to roads and bridges. “I don’t think anybody sitting here enjoys the need to raise any tax, but what are we to do?” said Republican Rep. Craig Headland, who chairs the committee. “We have roads that are crumbling and we haven’t had an increase in 16 years.” A higher fuels tax is expected to bring in tens of millions of dollars more annually, with the bulk going to a state highway fund, the Bismarck Tribune reported. The bill more than doubles the road user fee for electric and hybrid vehicle drivers. The electric vehicle fee would jump from $120 to $250 annually. The hybrid fee would increase from...

    By IRIS SAMUELS, Associated Press/Report for America HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montanans who say they spend hundreds of dollars a month on insulin spoke Monday in favor of a bill that would require insurance companies to cap their monthly copayment at $35 for the medication that helps them regulate their blood sugar and prevent dangerous health complications. The cost of insulin has been rising rapidly for years, including tripling between 2002 and 2013, according to the American Medical Association, even though the drug is largely unchanged. Two of Bri Runde’s six children have diabetes and she testified the cost of insulin is “outrageous.” Runde is hoping lawmakers get her and other families drowning in insulin costs some relief. “Our boys cannot live without insulin and it feels as though the companies manufacturing it are taking full advantage of that,” she said.

    People wearing masks outdoors in New York Noam Galai/Getty Images It's possible to socialize safely outdoors, but no interaction is risk-free. Semi-outdoor settings, like restaurant tents, are riskier than open-air spaces. A prolonged, close conversation can pose some risk even if you're outside. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Public health experts have encouraged increased caution as at least four new variants of the coronavirus have spread around the world, but going outside is still a safe social option if done carefully. Some of the burgeoning strains are more transmissible, while others might be able to evade the defenses built up by existing vaccines. As the virus continues to spread, it's more important than ever to wear a face mask (or two), practice good hand hygiene, and physically distance yourself from others. However, it's not realistic to ask people to refrain from socializing completely, especially at a...
    Most of us can agree that rabbits are adorable. You can find images of rabbits on greeting cards, clothing, food, decorations, you name it. Something about that twitchy nose and those big ears make us feel all gooey inside. And so they should! Rabbits are amazing creatures. They have an excellent sense of smell and boast a 190-degree field of vision. Not only are their ears structured to give them extremely acute hearing, but the large surface area of each ear also aids in the regulation of body temperature. The largest known rabbit resides at a horse sanctuary in the United Kingdom and weighs in at 55lbs. It is estimated that as of 2014, there were somewhere between 6-9 million pet rabbits in the United States. Rabbits are typically viewed as the perfect pet for a child – cute, fluffy, low-maintenance. All you need is a cage, some sawdust, and some brightly...
    SAN JOSE (CBS SF) — Grocery workers in Oakland and San Jose could soon earn hazard or “hero” pay for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic. “I’ve talked to grocery store workers, they’re scared because there’s a new strain of COVID and because the cases continue to rise,” said Oakland City Council President Nikki Fortunato Bas. Bas is backing the proposal in Oakland, which would impact establishments with at least 500 employees, if passed. In San Jose, council member Sergio Jimenez is behind a similar proposal that would affect grocery retailers with at least 300 employees. Both Jimenez and Bas are proposing an extra $5 an hour for grocery workers. “They’re risking their lives to serve us,” said Bas. “Hazard pay would make a huge difference so if that if they get sick or a loved one gets sick they have a little bit of extra money to pay the...
