    (CNN)The pace of Covid-19 vaccine administration in the US continues to improve, each day bringing the country closer to herd immunity -- the point at which enough people are protected against a disease that it cannot spread. This week, President Joe Biden said that the US will have enough vaccine for every adult by the end of May, and a CNN analysis of federal data shows that herd immunity is likely not far behind. At the current pace of about 2 million shots per day -- the latest seven-day average of doses administered reported by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention -- the US could reach herd immunity by summer through vaccinations alone. It will likely be even sooner, if factoring in individuals who may have some natural immunity due to prior infection. When will the US reach herd immunity and what will it look like?Herd immunity...
    I played a lot of Mafia as a kid. At recess and summer camps, it was a favorite because it required no equipment and no arena, and it wasn’t about feats of strength or speed; it was about lying, and noticing when others were lying. When I first heard about Gnosia, a single-player version of the traditional impostor social game, I wondered how it would capture that tension. From playground Mafia to recent crazes like Among Us, the thrill comes from trying to see through how your friends lie, and fooling them in turn. Amazingly, Gnosia pulls it off. Even though you’re playing against computers instead of humans, the game builds tension through its charismatic cast and turn-based debate scrums, then threads it all together with an overarching mystery. Though frustratingly paced at times, Gnosia still makes a single-player version of “find the impostor” work. ...

    Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that Senate Democrats should end the filibuster rule requiring 60 votes to end debate and pass bills. Mitchell said, “Senator, we’ve been talk here today about issues like climate change, like immigration reform, like the George Floyd bill. All of these pieces of legislation that are going to get through the House, not that comfortably given the margins, but get through the House and die in the Senate unless something is done because no matter how popular they are. That’s what’s so striking about this. And if you’re facing that kind of a roadblock, is it time to rethink the filibuster?” Sanders said, “If we cannot get Republican support in one way or another, we’ve got to go forward. Now, you asked me about the filibuster. It is my position absolutely that democracy has got to prevail in the...
    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — James Akinjo was 4 when his mother died of leukemia. He was 13 when his brother died. He’s known of friends getting murdered, seen family members go to prison, dodged gang violence while growing up. Akinjo easily could have ended up on the wrong path, spiraled downward from the pain, been caught up in the maelstrom of life on the tough streets of Oakland, California. Akinjo never wavered in his quest to become the best possible basketball player he could. If there was even a hint that he might be steering in the wrong direction, his family and friends were there to nudge him back. “My family steered me right, kept me on the right track,” the Arizona junior guard said. “Everybody from my neighborhood supported me, made sure I did the right things.” Akinjo has made a name for himself as one of college...
    With data from the space telescope, the causes of the low brightness Canis Majoris were resolved. The interstellar telescope Hubble it’s going to pull out of space activity in a big way. With only months remaining for its deactivation, scientists from the POT They solved a mystery that had been around for a long time. It’s about the low brightness I was registering VY Canis Majoris. Last year Hubble managed to resolve the low brightness of Betelgeuse, capturing data that demonstrated that the dust ejection influenced our gaze from Earth. Therefore, with VY Canis Majoris, apparently the same thing happened, as published by NASA on its website. VY Canis Majoris is a red giant star and larger than Betelegeuse. And although it is visible to the Earth, it is a celestial body that is further away. Then, in case of suffering events similar to those of Betelgeuse, its access...
    LONDON (AP) — Britain’s vaccines minister on Friday dismissed suggestions that the country was getting key COVID-19 jabs intended for poorer countries, insisting that 10 million doses coming from India were always intended for distribution in the U.K. Nadhim Zahawi, in an interview with The Associated Press, confirmed reports that the Serum Institute of India, one of the world’s largest vaccine makers, would be sending doses of the vaccine developed by Oxford University and AstraZeneca to the U.K. Non-governmental organizations such as Medecins Sans Frontieres have raised concerns that shipments from the Serum Institute would reduce supplies to developing countries. Zahawi insisted this was not the case. “We, of course, sought assurances from AstraZeneca and from Serum that our doses will not impact their commitment to the low-income and middle-income countries of the world,’’ he said. “And they are making about 300 million doses available to low- and middle-income countries....
    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Just three seasons removed from hoisting the Presidents’ Trophy, the Nashville Predators find themselves on the verge of rebuilding. The only question is when does the NHL’s winningest general manager start tearing down what he’s built. David Poile wants to see how the Predators fare over a stretch against the Central Division’s best. Poile recalled earlier this week Nashville’s run to the 2017 Stanley Cup Final, which the Predators followed by winning the Presidents’ Trophy the next season. Rebuilding isn’t a word Poile wants to use, not the GM who built this franchise from the ground up starting with expansion. “Obviously at the start of this season we were perfect fodder for any conversation for trades and a rebuild, and that’s going to continue until we either climb higher in the standings or we actually make a trade,” Poile said Tuesday on ESPN 102.5 The...

    TAMPA – Aaron Boone and his pacemaker are ready to get back in the Yankees dugout. Now he just needs to wait another day or two to get through COVID-19 intake testing. The Yankees manager said Friday he is already feeling the difference from his procedure to address a low heart rate, and is itching to get back after being away from the team since Wednesday. “I can’t believe how good I feel,” Boone said Friday morning in his first public comments since the surgery. “It makes me really glad that I got this done because I certainly, the last couple months, have not felt anywhere close to how I felt this morning, even [Thursday] morning getting out of the hospital.

    Going through a personal experience can define you and the way you help others. That’s what happened to Bianka Solorzano, who overcame hardship with work and perseverance, and now looks forward to helping others do the same. There are certain things in life that you can never fully grasp if you don’t go through them yourself. You can study a subject and become really good at it, but there are things that only first-hand knowledge will help you fully understand.

    Sen. Steve Daines, R-Mont., is introducing an amendment to the Senate Reconciliation Bill to ensure the nearly $130 billion in federal COVID-19 relief for U.S. schools is spent in 2021. The Senate is holding a marathon "vote-a-rama" session on Friday for President Biden's $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package during which Republicans can offer unlimited amendments to the bill and force Democrats to take politically tough votes on everything from abortion to border security.

    Rep. Eric Swalwell filed a new lawsuit Friday in DC's federal District Court against Donald Trump and his closest allies for inspiring the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol that claimed five lives and injured more than 100 police officers. The second federal suit of its kind, it accuses Trump, Don Jr., Rudy Giuliani, and GOP Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama of violating federal civil rights and anti-terrorism laws by inciting the riot, aiding the rioters, and inflicting lasting emotional harms on members of Congress, according to CNN. Last month, Rep. Bennie Thompson of Mississippi filed a lawsuit against Trump, Giuliani, and the right-wing extremist groups the Oath Keepers and Proud Boys.

    Getty Bears quarterbacks Nick Foles and Mitch Trubisky The Chicago Bears aren’t coming right out and saying they’re through with Mitch Trubisky, but based on recent comments made by head coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace, the team may see more of a future with Nick Foles.

    After Emma Coronel was arrested on February 22 in Virginia, United States, the Mexican group Los Tigres del Norte mentioned that they could probably release a song in honor of the wife of Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán. According to statements made in an interview on the Univisión network’s Primer Impacto program, when asked about the possibility of writing and recording a Coronel song, they answered that they did not close the door. “The stories are sung by different characters, we may be interested in something like this, but let the authorities let them be the ones who give the last word,” said Jorge Hernández, a member of the group. The Chiefs of Chiefs have been characterized by their musical career, which already has more than 50 years, and also by placing in the taste of many people the well-known drug corridors, those stories about drug traffickers and facts related to...
    The Pasadena Unified School District on Thursday joined a growing number of Los Angeles County school systems that are swiftly putting plans in place to begin bringing elementary students back to campus by the end of the month, ending a year of pandemic-forced closures. The discussion in Pasadena typified those unfolding in many school districts in the county as board members consider a host of issues: safety measures, vaccines for teachers and staff, parent decisions — some who are eager to send their children back and others who are worried and want to continue distance learning. “This weighs heavily on us,” said Pasadena Supt. Brian McDonald, after three hours of public comment, with many people voicing concern about returning to in-person instruction. Some teachers pushed back against the idea of reopening campuses without fully vaccinating staff. But the board agreed it is time to begin a phased-in reopening in...
    BLUE BELL, Pa. (AP) — Firefighters in Pennsylvania saved a bride's wedding, already postponed by COVID-19, from going up in flames. The fire broke out Thursday night in the ceiling of a building at the historic Normandy Farm Hotel. Inside the building was Caitlin Kerezsi's wedding dress. She was eating at a restaurant across the street when she saw the smoke and started running, she told WPVI-TV. “The dresses were in there and the firefighters did an incredible job. They got everything out. Got the dresses out, my brother-in-law’s suit, luggage, money," Kerezsi said. She had canceled the wedding last March because of the coronavirus pandemic and feared she'd have to postpone it again. The bride-to-be said her Friday wedding was “destined for greatness.” “If we can get through COVID and we can get through a fire, I think we can get through just about anything,” she said. The fire...
    Highlights: What’s changed in the Senate’s virus relief bill WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate is beginning debate on a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill, after Democrats made eleventh-hour changes aimed at ensuring they could pull President Joe Biden’s top legislative priority through the precariously divided chamber. Democrats were hoping for Senate approval of the package before next week, in time for the House to sign off and get the measure to Biden quickly. After the Senate voted by the slimmest of margins Thursday to begin the debate, Democrats were encountering opposition from Republicans arguing that the measure’s massive price tag ignored promising signs that the pandemic and wounded economy were turning around. Democratic leaders made over a dozen late additions to their package, reflecting their need to cement unanimous support from all their senators — plus Vice President Kamala Harris’ tie-breaking vote — to succeed...

    London (CNN Business)From the English Premier League to the NFL, sport is a multibillion-dollar industry, and top teams are increasingly turning to technology to give them the edge.Until recently, gathering athletes' performance data was a laborious process. Coaches and sports scientists would spend hours compiling information from games and training sessions, pulling out the information relevant to their players' development. But technology-based performance analytics has changed all that.These days, athletes can wear devices or vests with GPS-tracking capabilities that record the speed and distance they run, as well as the impacts on their body. The information helps coaches develop training plans to avoid athlete fatigue and maximize performance for match days. STATSports, a company based in Northern Ireland, is a leader in the performance analytics industry. Most teams in the English Premier League (EPL) use its technology, as do top rugby and American football teams. In 2018, the firm secured...
    Satechi has released a new USB-C hub for your laptop to add all the ports that it arguably should have included in the first place. Although the port selection on the $99.99 USB-C On-the-Go Multiport Adapter is similar to other hubs, the high spec of each port makes Satechi’s device worthy of attention. As well as laptops, it also works with USB-C tablets like recent iPad Pro models. The hub’s got HDMI, which offers a maximum resolution of 4K and refresh rate of 60Hz, and there’s USB-C PD pass-through charging at up to 100W (though you have to provide your own power brick). The cable for attaching it to your device isn’t fixed like it is on some hubs, and Satechi supplies two USB-C to USB-C cables with the hub. One’s 1-m long, and there’s a second short cable that can be tucked into the hub when you’re traveling. Rounding...
    (CNN)For Jayashree Krishnan, who has painted more than 150 portraits of first responders across the globe since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the eyes tell the story. "Each person's set of eyes that I have painted so far, they tell their own story," Krishnan said. "My goal was to just capture that emotion." If she spends two hours on a painting, Krishnan has guessed that half of her time is spent on the eyes alone. And that isn't just artistic choice; Krishnan often can only see the eyes of the subjects she paints. That's because those subjects are the doctors, nurses and first responders who have been hard at work nearly every day since the start of the pandemic. Their faces are mostly covered by masks and shields. Krishnan, who turned 50 in March 2020, when the pandemic sent the US into lockdown, works from a studio in downtown...

    A man in England taking pictures of Cornwall’s coastline, snapped a photo recenelty of what at first appeared to be a ship floating through the clouds. Photographer David Morris said he was "amazed and very baffled" by the optical illusion but admitted he had seen something similar before, according to the U.K.’s ITV. The ship looked like it was floating because of the similar coloring of the distant sky and sea, according to ITV. "Superior mirages occur because of the weather condition known as a temperature inversion, where cold air lies close to the sea with warmer air above it," BBC meteorologist David Braine said.

    We’d say the last time something like this happened was when John Tortorella benched Marian Gaborik in the third period of Game 5 of the Rangers’ 2012 conference finals against the Devils, except doing such a thing was pretty much standard operating procedure for the coach. Hence, no shock value there. This, though, on Thursday night in Newark was different. This was different with David Quinn, who for the first time in his three seasons behind the bench brought down the hammer on one of the Rangers’ marquee players by dramatically reducing Mika Zibanejad’s ice time in the first period before sitting him for the first 10:46 of the second. Finally, after weeks of giving Zibanejad the benefit of the doubt he had earned not only down the stretch last season, but through the entirety of the center’s work under Quinn, the coach had seen enough, following another period in...

    It is one thing for the House of Representatives to pass H.R. 5 by a vote of 224 to 206. It is quite another for Democrats to steer their bill banning discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity through the Senate and into law, as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer knows only too well. When asked when he would put the Equality Act to a vote, he told a reporter: “At the exact right time.” Given that it has no chance of drawing sufficient Republican support to muster the 60 votes needed to pass, his answer suggested that “the exact right time” would be never. And so Democrats are discovering that although they have the thinnest possible majority in the Senate, it remains a graveyard for their progressive agenda just as surely as it was when Sen. Mitch McConnell was the majority leader and boasted last year about...

    TOKYO (AP) — Japan’s government will extend a state of emergency in the Tokyo region for another two weeks because its medical systems are still strained by COVID-19 patients, the minister in charge of virus response said Friday. “For two more weeks, we will keep the measure in place … so that we can firmly ease strains on hospitals” to meet conditions for lifting the emergency measures, economic revitalization minister Yasutoshi Nishimura told reporters. Nishimura said the government has received preliminary approval from experts to extend the emergency through March 21 for Tokyo and three neighboring prefectures.

    CLEVELAND (AP) — Kevin Love’s devotion to raising awareness and advocating for mental health during isolating times has earned him another honor. The Cavaliers forward and five-time All-Star received the first Humanitarian of the Year Award on Thursday night at the Greater Cleveland Sports Awards, an annual event that brings out the city’s top sports names but was held virtually this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Love first went public with his own mental health issues in 2018, chronicling those struggles in an essay. His openness and willingness to share his personal story since has helped erase stigmas about mental issues and led to the NBA adopting programs to assist players. During the pandemic, Love, who has been sidelined most of this season with a calf injury, donated $100,000 through his foundation to assist team employees and workers at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

    Vaccine sites specifically for teachers, drive-through options for disabled people and an appointment site that’s now available in Spanish, Vietnamese and Korean — these are just some of the recent updates to the Orange County’s COVID-19 vaccination effort. It was a challenging start, but as of Feb. 25, more than 425,000 people have gotten at least one vaccine dose in Orange County, and more than 165,000 have received both doses. In a county with more than 3.1 million residents — and an estimated 450,000 seniors and 477,000 people who work in education, childcare, food and agriculture or emergency services — there’s still a long way to go. But after President Biden’s announcement that the U.S. would have enough COVID-19 vaccines by the end of May to inoculate every American adult, Clayton Chau, the director of the Orange County Health Care agency, said he’s hopeful that the county...
    By Alan Fram | Associated Press WASHINGTON — The Senate voted Thursday to begin debating a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill, after Democrats made eleventh-hour changes aimed at ensuring they could pull President Joe Biden’s top legislative priority through the precariously divided chamber. Democrats were hoping for Senate approval of the package before next week, in time for the House to sign off and get the measure to Biden quickly. They were encountering opposition from Republicans arguing that the measure’s massive price tag ignored promising signs that the pandemic and wounded economy were turning around. Democratic leaders made over a dozen late changes in their package, reflecting their need to cement unanimous support from all their senators — plus Vice President Kamala Harris’ tie-breaking vote — to succeed in the 50-50 chamber. It’s widely expected the Senate will approve the bill and the House will whisk it to Biden for...
    While New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo faces investigations over his coronavirus response and allegations of sexual harassment, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul waits in the wings in case he falls. Cuomo said on Wednesday that he will not resign, but he’s still facing significant pressure to do so from Democrats on both the state and national stage. If Cuomo goes, Hochul is next in line. Her ascent wouldn’t be the first time she has benefited from another party member’s blunders. Hochul, 62, hails from Buffalo and stepped into national politics almost by accident. In 2011, Christopher Lee, the Republican congressman representing the Rust Belt city, abruptly resigned when the gossip website Gawker revealed his extramarital exploits. Lee, who had a young son, posed as a divorced lobbyist and sent shirtless pictures of himself to a woman on Craigslist's “Women Seeking Men” online forum. When Lee resigned, Hochul won what had...

    After a , Plex’s Apple TV app integration is now live, the company told News Brig. The feature allows you to use the Apple TV app or Siri to play content that’s available through Plex’s free , with the added bonus that once you start a movie or show it will appear in your “Up Next” queue.  As expected, the integration is only available in the US, and you can’t access content on your personal Plex server through Apple’s software. Live TV is also off the table, as is any other content that you can watch through Plex. That limits the appeal somewhat, but if you already use your Apple devices to watch content from the platform, you get another way to access it.
