    Researchers at the University of Bar-Ilan and the Ziv Medical Center in Israel have conducted a preliminary study in which they have observed that people previously infected with Covid-19 responded very strongly to the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, regardless of when they were infected and whether or not they had detectable antibodies against Covid-19 before receiving the vaccine, which has led them to conclude that a single dose produces a strong immune response. Although the data from clinical trials is encouraging, the real-world evidence regarding the Covid-19 vaccine it is still scarce. In particular, the response to the vaccine among those previously infected with SARS-CoV-2 is not yet fully understood. Hence, different research groups, such as this one from Israel, are investigating about it. The study, published in the journal Eurosurveillance, was conducted on a cohort of 514 Ziv Medical Center staff. Seventeen of them were infected...

    Don Cheadle says cancel culture is a 'fabrication' and believes people who 'cry' about it believe they are being treated unfairly. The actor, who is very vocal about his political beliefs on Twitter, made the comments in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday, in which he was asked whether he's ever hesitant to share his opinions out of fear his career may be impacted. 'I think if you live by the sword, you die by the sword,' Cheadle, 56, responded. 'I think that cancel culture, a lot of that is just a fabrication. It’s not really real. I don’t think a lot of people who are crying about being canceled are really "canceled."' The Marvel star went on to say that those targeted by cancel culture have merely received 'flack and blowback', but they want 'to talk about it in terms of something that is untoward or unfair.'  'To have...
    Reduces the risk of death by 62%. Different studies have detailed the benefits of regular coffee or green tea intake. And as the list continues to grow, we will tell you one more. This recent one was carried out by scientists from the University of Osaka, in Japan. It suggests that a single cup of either drink, daily, reduces the risk of death in two types of patients. The study details that one is the one who suffered and survived a stroke. While the other is the patient who suffered a heart attack. If you both have a cup of tea or coffee, you regularly reduce your risk of death by 62%, the study says. Daily Mail publishes that researchers from the Japanese institute analyzed data from approximately 46,000 patients. They selected those who were aged between 40 and 79 years. All the volunteers were given a survey in...

    At first, the body count was stunning. Eventually, it became numbing. Now, nearly a year after America’s first COVID fatality, about 2,400 Orange County residents are dead of coronavirus. On Friday, Jan. 15, the county reported a one-day record of 82 fatalities. But post-Thanksgiving surge has been compounded by a post-Christmas surge, so that record might not be our last. Of course, each spike on the graph is more than a number. They are real people who leave behind real families and real grief. The disease is spawning all manner of real-life nightmares. Health workers are trapped in a cycle of too many commitments and too few hands. Hospitals put up tents for surplus patients. Mortuaries rent refrigerated trucks for extra storage. The sickest patients endure the terror of the ventilator, knowing being hooked up could be the last stage of life. Some die without having seen a loved one’s face...

    Allow learner drivers to be approved if their driving teachers feel they are safe behind the wheel. This is what is included in the petition signed by more than 30,000 people and that affects all aspiring drivers in the United Kingdom, where the pandemic has caused the paralysis of reservations for driving tests. The debate is on the table, as the idea is somewhat controversial. The reason why this petition has started a signature collection is the following: “It is unfair for students who have not been able book a test Due to the pandemic having to wait a long time to access the reservation. “This is stated by one of the many people who are in favor of the request. From the page of the Parliament of the United Kingdom you can vote, and the rules establish that if it reaches 100,000 signatures, Parliament has to come to...

            by Victor Davis Hanson  The year 2020 witnessed a long series of writs lodged against an America beset with plague, quarantine, recessions, riot and arson, and the most contested election since 1876. What was strange was not so much the anarchist Left’s efforts in the present to wipe away the past to recalibrate our Animal Farm future. What was odder were both the absurdities of the complaints against American civilization, and the unwillingness or inability of Americans to rebut them and defend their own culture. Demonizing Our Past In just a year, thousands of memorials and icons have vanished. Names have changed, words are banned. Careers were ruined. As new totalitarian rules were enshrined, old freedoms became despised. Yet most of the country sat in lockdown quiet, as it was told that it, and its history, were toxic and culpable – and by whom exactly? Moralists like...
    New York City saw a record one in seven chain store branches, including Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts, close this year with Manhattan suffering the biggest blow as nearly 600 businesses shut their doors.    According to the Center for an Urban Future’s 2020 State of the Chains that was released Wednesday, the number of chain stores in the Big Apple declined by 13.3 per cent, which means some 1,132 businesses closed.  Two per cent have closed temporarily and 11.3 per cent haven't indicated whether the closures are permanent or temporary.  Dunkin Donuts, which is New York City's largest retail chain with 608 locations, lost 18 stores.

Not that the Packers should need much convincing. Jones is a star, has been a star for some time now, and on Saturday night at Lambeau Field did what is expected of a star.  Jones finished with 145 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries, averaging an absurd 7.3-yard average in the Packers’ 24-16 win against the Carolina Panthers.

    Russell Wilson lamented “one of those days” after the Seattle Seahawks were stunned by the New York Giants on Sunday. The Seahawks fell to a 17-12 loss to mark perhaps the worst result of the Pete Carroll era. The Giants went into the game 4-7, while the NFC West-leading Seahawks were looking to extend their advantage. But the Giants – using backup quarterback Colt McCoy – had other ideas against Wilson and the Seahawks, who were outscored 14-0 in the third quarter. Wilson struggled on home turf in Seattle, where he was sacked five times and finished 27-of-43 passing for 263 yards, one touchdown and one interception. “It was one of those days,” said Wilson. “For me, I’ll go study the film and see where we can get better. I’m super confident about where we are, what we’re doing. I think that we’ve got to be cleaner. Hopefully, we get...
    Bryson DeChambeau felt like he shot 15 over after the American star failed to live up to his own hype at the Masters. DeChambeau stormed to his maiden major success at the U.S. Open in September but was unable to replicate his Winged Foot success in Georgia this week, finishing 2 under par at Augusta, where Dustin Johnson reigned supreme. The 27-year-old vowed to play the iconic par-72 course as if it were a par-67, yet found himself scrambling to make the cut on Saturday after opening efforts of 70 and 74. Renowned for his huge drives off the tee, DeChambeau seemed pent up throughout the tournament, and dropped 18 shots in total, including a triple bogey on Day 2. DeChambeau managed to card in the 60s on just one occasion from his four rounds, ultimately finishing tied for 34th place and 18 strokes adrift of champion Johnson on Sunday. Reflecting on his performance, DeChambeau...
    San Antonio – A San Antonio man has dedicated several months to cleaning and revitalizing some of San Antonio’s oldest gravestones. This man, who asked not to be identified, has cleaned at least 400 gravestones in the San Fernando Cemetery #2 since last May. He said there is a reason why he wanted to remain anonymous. “I am a good son of the church, so I want this to be for the greater glory of God,” said the man. “When I am doing this, I also want this to be about the people and their stories. I have no special talent for this or anything, it is just something I enjoy doing.” Some of the gravestones he’s cleaned are at least 100-years-old. “It is a very historic, beautiful place,” said the man. “I have a lot of family members buried there. I went to visit some people and noticed some...
    The youngest American adults are by far the worst at taking precautions to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, the Centers for Disease Control and PRevention (CDC) reports.  An average of 20 percent of people between ages 18 and 29 said they don't wear a face mask between May and June, and about 60 percent of that group said they took one or no other precautions to help protect themselves and others from COVID-19.    Young people are now the main drivers of increasing coronavirus cases across the U.S., which are now hitting record highs for daily infections.  COVID-19 is not particularly dangerous to young people, but they are far from invincible from it.  And as temperatures fall, social activities move indoors and families gather for the holidays (against the advice of many public health officials), the odds that younger Americans expose their more vulnerable elders to the virus will go...

    We're number one! And number two! And four and five! This week, U.S. News & World Report released its list of the "150 Best Places to Live in the U.S. in 2020-21," one of those rare listicle efforts that actually gets some respect. And this round, Colorado cities took four of the five top spots in the country. Boulder ranked first and Denver second; Colorado Springs came in fourth and Fort Collins fifth. The only city to stop a Colorado sweep was Austin, which placed third. In their Facebook comments on our story about Colorado's near sweep, some readers applauded...and some demanded a recount.

    Today is Columbus Day in those states that still celebrate the federal holiday on the second Monday of October. Colorado is no longer one of them, even though this was the first state to officially observe Columbus Day, making it a holiday in 1907. After several earlier attempts, Colorado lawmakers finally voted to abolish Columbus Day early in the 2020 session, and on March 20, Governor Jared Polis signed a law officially abolishing the holiday in this state. Instead, on October 5, the first Monday of the month, Colorado observed the first Frances Xavier Cabrini Day, honoring Mother Cabrini, the Italian immigrant whose good deeds cannot be disputed. For years, Denver was the site of protests over Columbus Day, with organizers arguing that the explorer was no one to honor. Glenn Morris, currently director of the University of Colorado Denver's 4th World Center for the Study of Indigenous Law and...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) – Friends of a Los Altos woman say she is so generous, it’s as if she only has one organ: her heart. Marian Aiken had never sewn a mask until friends needed coronavirus protection.   “Then one of my sons, his hospice worker, came and said he couldn’t find masks, and from that point on, people just kept asking for more and more masks,” said Aiken.   The former teacher, who is deaf, organized several women from her church, Los Altos United Methodist.   Since sheltering in place in the Spring, they’ve sewn 2,000 masks.   They have sent the masks for free to whoever asks, from nurses to farmworkers, and even the Navajo Nation, in New Mexico. Aiken and a friend made almost 100 masks so each participant of Morgan Autism Center could have two. Adult Program Director Sue Taylor says the designs made participants want...
    Sen. John Kennedy told Fox News’s Sean Hannity that he thinks House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was one of the people who participated in the Tide Pod challenge. “Sean, with respect, there are times, particularly recently, when I think Speaker Pelosi is one of those people who tried Tide Pods,” the Louisiana Republican told Hannity. “I want you to think about what she proposed today, this is what the speaker is threatening to do.” Eating Tide Pods was a dangerous internet challenge that gained popularity in 2017. “She is threatening to keep the House Democrats in session and prevent them from going home and running for reelection unless the Senate Republicans agree to the speaker’s $3.4 trillion coronavirus bill,” the Republican continued. “On the one hand, we can vote for Pelosi’s $3.4 trillion bill, or we can agree to allow her to put the House Democratic majority...

    A CNN panel discussion following President Donald Trump’s acceptance speech that closed the RNC got particularly heated when host Anderson Cooper shut down David Urban’s defense of Trump and his base of supporters. In this episode of CNN’s “Panelists Yell Over Each other,” reliable Trump critics Van Jones and Jennifer Granholm blasted the president for ginning up divisive animus with irresponsible rhetoric. When challenged by Urban, Granholm cited a study that showed over 50 instances of hate crimes in which an assailant cited President Trump, which did not happen under Obama or Bush. Urban agreed that violent attacks motivated by politics were never a good thing. He then shot back that, in his view, it wasn’t the Trump supporters that were violently looting cities amid the civil unrest, most recently in response to the recent shooting of Travis Blake. “I don’t see any of those people burning buildings and looting,”...
    Hundreds of thousands of white Americans would have to die from the coronavirus for their life expectancy levels to fall to that of black people pre-pandemic, a new analysis finds. Results showed that as many as 420,000 Caucasians would have to die to match the lowest-ever death rate ever recorded among African-Americans. And to reach the highest life expectancy age seen among the US black population, COVID-19 would need to cause an additional one million deaths among whites. Roughly 25% of all American deaths from coronavirus have been among blacks despite this group making up just 13% of the US population. Pictured: A healthcare worker tends to a patient in the COVID Unit at United Memorial Medical Center in Houston, Texas, July 2 Between 400,000 and 420,000 more white Americans would have to die from COVID-19 to reach the lowest-ever recorded mortality rate for blacks (left).  An additional...
    Pro Football Hall of Fame running back Curtis Martin, who played for both the New York Jets and New England Patriots, says the two division rivals may have something in common.

    A lawyer for the ex-Atlanta police officer who fatally shot Rayshard Brooks criticized the Fulton District Attorney on Thursday for trying to obtain a search warrant that he said would provide details of Americans who donated to his client during an online fundraiser. Noah Pines, one of Garrett Rolfe’s attorneys, has already requested that Paul Howard, the prosecutor, be recused from the case due to his public statements about the shooting, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. TUCKER CARLSON WEIGHS IN ON CASE The paper reported that a judge denied the warrant due to a lack of “probable cause.” Prosecutors hoped to learn about the origins of the online fundraiser and what happened to the money that was collected, the paper said.  The paper, citing an official from the district attorney’s office, reported that prosecutors wanted to determine if there was any evidence to support a bail-jumping charge.

    The best State Fair in our state! THE GRAM WITH A THOUSAND RULES writes: “Subject: Memories of Heritage Square. “Hey! No fair!

    Australians have slammed a bride-to-be for ranking her wedding guests in order of who she would most like to attend and telling the 'least preferred' group to 'keep an eye on the website' in case seats become vacant. The controversy began when a woman posted a photo of an invitation titled 'Important Notice' in a bridal group on Facebook. Addressed to friends and family, the note began by asking recipients to understand that the wedding venue can only accommodate a 'limited number of guests'.  While it's not known when the note was written, it's likely to have been sometime since March when the pandemic forced the federal government to implement social distancing policies and strict limits on numbers attending public gatherings.

    (CNN)The posts come every few minutes. Members from South Africa to Arizona report their coronavirus symptoms. Someone asks for vitamin suggestions. Another user asks for prayers for their mom.This unlikely support group began as a way for 32-year-old Andrey Khudyakov, from Paris, to keep in touch with his family members during the pandemic, some of whom live in New York, others in Sweden and some in Italy. They began inviting friends to the Facebook group, who added their own friends and soon the online community grew to more than 28,000 members."It's very hard when you're all alone by yourself at home locked down. And maybe sometimes you don't have family support," he says. "And you just need to share with someone what's going on and have feedback."Coronavirus support groups, like Khudyakov's, have multiplied in recent weeks.

    CDC director Robert Redfield says the current spike in COVID-19 infections in the South may have been caused by people from the Northeast traveling there for vacation and not due to states reopening too quickly.  Addressing the alarming surge in coronavirus cases, Redfield said on Tuesday that infections in Sun Belt states 'simultaneously kind of popped' in the second week of June after reopening in various phases.  Redfield compared it to the initial outbreak in the Northeast in March, which he says spread out to various states from epicenter New York.  'We tried to give states guidance on how to reopen safely. I think the guidance we put out was really sound,' he said in an interview with Dr Howard Bauchner of The Journal of the American Medical Association. 'I think if you look critically, few states actually followed that guidance, although I don't think the reopening's actually what's driving the current...
    The risk of death to patients with the coronavirus drastically increases with age, according to a new study. The study puts hard numbers to trends that have played out globally as governments and individuals attempt to protect the most vulnerable populations. The study found that the elderly, those with certain comorbidities, men, and people of black and South Asian ethnicities are at higher risk from the virus. The science journal Nature published the study on Wednesday, in which the authors analyzed troves of data from primary care records covering roughly 40% of Britain’s population. The researchers compiled a data base of 17,278,392 primary care records, including 10,926 patients that suffered COVID-19-related deaths. “A lot of previous work has focused on patients that present at hospital,” Oxford researcher Dr. Ben Goldacre, one of the study’s authors, told The New York Times. “That’s useful and important, but we wanted to get a...
    DENVER (CBS4)– It’s no secret. Matt Kemp loves to hit against the Colorado Rockies and he loves to hit at Coors Field. “I see the ball really good here,” said Kemp. “I like the background, the batter’s eye with the trees, it’s just one of those ballparks that I can get locked in at.” (credit: CBS) The numbers support Kemp’s claims: In 178 games vs. the Rockies, Kemp has a .314 batting average, 46 home runs, 154 RBI and a .611 slugging percentage. All those numbers are the highest he has against any other team in his career. “If I was struggling at any time and I knew we were coming to Colorado, I thought this was a place that I could really get locked in,” said Kemp. At 35 years old, there is some question as to how much Kemp has left. Last year he played in only 20...
    Republican Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs engaged in a lengthy debate with Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto over mandatory masking requirements and the fight against COVID-19. The Thursday “Your World with Neil Cavuto” debate came as more southern and western states, including Texas, issue mandatory masking orders as an attempt to curb recent coronavirus spikes. “I have to tell you I’m reticent to believe that if masks work so well then why is L.A. spiking and surging with COVID cases where they’ve had a mandatory mask regulation in effect for seven weeks now,” Biggs said, responding to Cavuto’s question about whether masks should be required. “There is no empirical evidence that that is the case.” After the Fox News anchor interrupted and insisted that many “were ignoring” the Los Angelas mask order, Biggs pointed to “over 90 studies” that all point to the n95 as the only one that actually “has...
    President Donald Trump said this week that he not only supports another round of direct payments to US taxpayers, but he wants them this time to be “much more generous” than the $ 1,200 checks sent in March through the CARES Act. “I actually support a higher figure than the Democrats’ proposal, but it must be done correctly,” Trump told Blake Burman, a reporter for FOX Business. “I want the money that reaches people to be greater so they can spend it. I want money to come quickly.” The current proposal on the table is the HEROES Act, which was passed by the House, but remains stagnant in the Senate. The HEROES Act promises a stimulus payment of $ 1,200 per stimulus check per adult and $ 1,200 per qualifying dependent, including up to three dependents per family, for a maximum of $ 6,000...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Coronavirus pandemic has presented many challenges no one saw coming. One of which was how to say goodbye to loved ones. For many, that wasn’t possible with gathering limitations and restrictions. On Sunday, the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh held a memorial Mass for members of the church community who died during the pandemic. Hundreds of names sat before the altar as Bishop David Zubik performed the Mass. “This is meant to be a time of consolation and comfort for everybody as we celebrate this Mass for all those people,” Bishop Zubik said. Many of those that passed away were not able to have a funeral Mass because of the Coronavirus lockdown. Bishop Zubik said it was spiritually one of the harder parts of the pandemic. Priests are now working with families to plan individual memorial Masses. “We look for lots of different ways in which we...
