Through his Twitter account he confirmed it. I publicly share that I have # COVID19. I started with symptoms last night, fortunately they are mild.

    The US may not reach herd immunity and return to some semblance of normalcy until Thanksgiving at the current pace of COVID-19 vaccinations and speed of variant spread, Biden administration officials told the Daily Beast.  That's far later than the end-of-summer target date by which Dr Anthony Fauci has estimated that American life might get back to normal.  Dr Fauci, however, remains 'cautiously optimistic' that that day could come by fall if the general public starts getting vaccines by 'April, May, June,' but admitted he's concerned that variants could stretch that timeline in an interview with the Daily Beast.  So far, 10.5 percent of the US population has received one or more doses of COVID-19 vaccine.   But if American officials were to follow Israel's model of reopening, restaurants, gyms and stores when 90 percent of over-50s are vaccinated, these businesses could be operational as early as June, a DailyMail.com analysis...

    MTV Chris "CT" Tamburello The first episode of the season in The Challenge: Double Agents featured two major teams getting voted into elimination, seemingly orchestrated by Kam Williams and her alliance: the partnership of Ashley Mitchell and Chris “CT” Tamburello and the Wes Bergmann and Natalie Anderson duo. It appeared to fans as though one of the two biggest names in The Challenge would be going home early until TJ Lavin announced that it was a female elimination. Wes Bergmann continued to be targeted and went home a couple of weeks later, but since the first week, CT has managed to fly under the radar and avoid getting thrown back into The Crater. However, Kam and her boyfriend Leroy Garrett recently revealed that this decision to keep CT out of elimination was their strategy, which changed after the first episode of the season. In their recap video following...
    Chinese President Xi Jinping attends the World Economic Forum WEF Virtual Event of the Davos Agenda and delivers a special address via video link in Beijing, capital of China, Jan. 25, 2021.Li Xueren | Xinhua News Agency | Getty Images An anonymous author, self-described as a former senior government official with deep China expertise and experience, published an extraordinary Atlantic Council Strategy Paper this week. Its aim is nothing less than to shape Biden administration strategy toward Beijing—with President Xi Jinping as its prime focus. What makes the paper worth reading, all 26,000 words of it, are the author's insights into China's internal workings and party fissures, the author's solutions to the current lack of any coherent U.S. national strategy toward Beijing, and the paper's controversial call that the Biden administration draw "red lines" that "should deterrence fail, will prompt direct US intervention." "The United States list of...

    BERLIN (AP) — The Austrian government on Thursday presented a national strategy on fighting rising anti-Semitism that includes improving the protection of synagogues, improved education about Judaism and stricter prosecution of hate crimes against Jews. The Alpine country’s Europe Minister, Karoline Edtstadler, stressed Austria’s responsibility to fight anti-Semitism regardless of whether it comes from the far right, leftists, immigrants or anybody else, Austrian news agency APA reported. The new measures intend to battle anti-Semitism in all its forms and wherever it expresses itself — from online chat groups to hate speech in corner bars or expressions of hatred against Jews at public protests such as the current rallies against coronavirus regulations, Edtstadler said. The president of the Jewish community of Vienna, Oskar Deutsch, welcomed the government’s initiative. “Jews are always the first ones who are affected” by discrimination, Deutsch warned, adding that the fight against anti-Semitism needs to be an...

LThe Biden administration unveils Thursday a detailed roadmap focused on scientific expertise to fight Covid-19 by increasing vaccinations and screenings, as the pandemic enters its “deadliest” phase according to the new US president. The Democrat will immediately sign, according to officials, 10 decrees and other directives to launch this national strategy which was sorely lacking under his predecessor Donald Trump, in the opinion of many experts. “For nearly a year, the Americans couldn’t find any strategy, let alone a comprehensive approach to deal with Covid, with the federal government,” said Jeff Zients, who coordinates the new administration’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic. “With President Biden taking office today, all that will change,” he told reporters.

    MSNBC’s Chris Hayes condemned the Trump administration’s deadly negligence over Covid-19 and called it out for exacerbating the pandemic, pointing to explosive, newly-released White House memos that openly encouraged a do-nothing, “herd immunity” approach. On Wednesday, Politico obtained email records from a top HHS official, Paul Alexander, that repeatedly pressed for a “herd immunity” strategy that would encourage the spread of the coronavirus, urging as a policy perspective that “we want them infected.” “It’s a strategy we have seen unfold before our eyes. We’ve talked about it here on the show,” Hayes said t the outset of his show. “It’s been apparent to all of us reporting on this and watching. We now have the smoking gun evidence, e-mails obtained by Politico, in which the very people at the center of this say what exactly they were doing. That they wanted people to get the virus.” Pointing out the ongoing death toll under...
    Judge Emmet Sullivan. Hero. The sore loser in the White House is likely to pardon former national security adviser and traitor to Russia Michael Flynn before he leaves office, multiple outlets report. CNN has three sources telling them that, though they "cautioned that Trump could change his mind about making such a move." Others he is considering pardoning are other traitors: George Papadopoulos and Paul Manafort. Axios has two sources with "direct knowledge" who say "Trump has told confidants he plans to pardon his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to the FBI about his Russian contacts." Specifically, in the weeks before Trump's inauguration, Flynn had three calls with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak about how Russia should respond to the Obama administration’s sanctions in response to election interference, about future relations between the countries, and about a UN resolution condemning Israeli settlements on the West...
    BARRANQUILLA, Colombia Nov 13 (.) – Uruguay’s sweeping 3-0 win over Colombia on the third day of the South American qualifying tie for the Qatar World Cup was built on a well-planned strategy that limited the home team, the coach said on Friday of the Celeste national team, Óscar Washington Tabárez. With the victory as a visitor in the Caribbean city of Barranquilla, Uruguay reached six points that place it in fourth place, while Colombia was left with four units in seventh position. “We play a strategy to try to limit it to the Colombian team (…) When a match is planned, if one is right or not, it is seen at the time it is played,” Tabárez said in the press conference after of the meeting. “We did things well from the beginning, we got an early goal that set a course and obviously increased...
    LONDON (AP) — The head of the World Health Organization warned against the idea that herd immunity might be a realistic strategy to stop the pandemic, dismissing such proposals as “simply unethical." At a media briefing on Monday, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said health officials typically aim to achieve herd immunity by vaccination. Tedros noted that to obtain herd immunity from a highly infectious disease such as measles, for example, about 95% of the population must be immunized. “Herd immunity is achieved by protecting people from a virus, not by exposing them to it,” he said. Some researchers have argued that allowing COVID-19 to spread in populations that are not obviously vulnerable will help build up herd immunity and is a more realistic way to stop the pandemic, instead of the restrictive lockdowns that have proved economically devastating. “Never in the history of public health has herd immunity been...
    The San Francisco Giants will send a rookie starter to the mound against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday, but it’s not the rookie who was initially expected to pitch. Giants manager Gabe Kapler announced left-handed reliever Caleb Baragar will make his first career start on a day when Logan Webb’s turn in the rotation is up. Webb owns a 5.73 ERA in 11 starts this season and has battled command issues in recent outings, but Kapler said Webb is healthy and hinted he would be available to pitch in relief on Wednesday. Aside from naming Baragar the starter, the Giants’ first-year manager did not want to provide any details on how the team was planning to deploy pitchers in Wednesday’s game. “As much as I want to be forthright and answer the question and talk game strategy here, I’m probably going to keep that more internal for...
    Three months before Election Day, James Barnes teleconferenced into a strategy meeting about how, exactly, to persuade people not to vote for Donald Trump. The 32-year-old wore his hair loosely gathered in a man bun and had the sober expression of someone who, as a hazard of his occupation, thinks about the president nearly all the time. Other faces popped up on his monitor, offering glimpses into millennial apartments, until someone started a screen share. They were here to review a series of video testimonials by conservatives who had decided to oppose Trump. Barnes and his colleagues wanted to know which ones resonated most with prospective voters on Facebook. Were testimonials from men or women more effective? Midwesterners or Southerners?

    PARIS (AP) — South Korea’s ambassador to France said his country managed to enforce a quick response to the coronavirus based on its previous experiences of major epidemics, at a French parliament hearing on Wednesday. Speaking before a Senate’s commission of inquiry into how authorities handled the COVID-19 crisis, Choi Jong-moon detailed South Korea’s effective actions to fight the spread of the virus, including quickly ratcheting up testing. “From the start of the crisis and even before the first case was confirmed, the government and local biotechnological companies started working together on developing test kits,” Choi said. “A month later, we were able to test up to 40-thousand people per day.” South Korea’s authorities were able to deploy hundreds of centers to test people with symptoms and to quickly develop smartphone apps tracking the virus, he added. Choi said authorities relied on a key 2015 law which allowed the KCDC...
    The Los Angeles Lakers put away all doubts about their abilities to rest on Thursday’s game 2 of the playoffs. They blew the Portland Trail Blazers right out of the water with a 111-88 victory. Anthony Davis‘ whopping come back from Game 1 was a sight for sore eyes. He bagged 31 points, grabbed 11 rebounds, and absolutely killed it defensively. The Blazers have to hit back with a stronger response to this game. However, this could be tricky with Damian Lillard’s status probable for the next game. Damian Lillard reveals what Lakers were trying to do Unfortunately for the Blazers, Lillard dislocated his left index finger in the third quarter. His availability for the game on Saturday remains clouded in mystery. Even if he does, it’s quite unlikely to play in the same form that he did before. During game 1, the Lakers were having a hard time stopping Damian...
    The world is nowhere near achieving herd immunity against coronavirus, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned. Dr Michael Ryan, the no-nonsense Irish epidemiologist in charge of the WHO's health emergencies programme, told people to stop pinning their hopes on the theory as a Covid fix-all. Scientists believe at least 70 per cent of people need to have caught and recovered from the virus to reach herd immunity — when a disease runs out of room and can no longer spread because enough of the population have been exposed to it. More optimistic experts estimate community protection could be established if 40 per cent of people had antibodies against Covid-19. But studies suggest only about 10 to 20 per cent of the people living in badly-hit countries such as the UK have the disease-fighting proteins.  Dr Ryan dismissed the controversial strategy of herd immunity as a viable policy at a press...

    House GOP leaders are considering pursuing ethics charges against Democrat Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) for alleged misconduct he engaged in against Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) at an Intelligence Committee meeting on Wednesday morning. “He was very rude,” Rep. Rick Crawford (R-AR) told Breitbart News on Wednesday evening of Maloney’s behavior towards Nunes and others during the committee meeting earlier in the day. “Members don’t question other members in hearings. This wasn’t on the agenda for the meeting. It was really inappropriate in my opinion, and pretty childish.” Others familiar with the incident told Breitbart News that when a transcript of the incident—with the exact words of Maloney’s accusations and questions of Nunes during the meeting—becomes available, House GOP leadership lawyers familiar with parliamentary rules will consider bringing formal ethics charges against Maloney for his alleged misconduct toward Nunes during the meeting. The standing rules of the House of Representatives...
    Panama, Jul 28 (EFE) .- The private sector of Panama, a country experiencing an explosion of cases of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, is promoting a plan to bring food and monitor isolated patients in their homes, similar to the one implanted in Guayaquil and helped control the epidemic in that Ecuadorian city that became one of the most affected in the region by the disease. The Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture of Panama (CCIAP) is structuring the strategy, a spokesman for the union told Efe on Tuesday, which establishes the participation of businessmen, doctors, professionals from different branches, representatives of civic clubs and civil society in general. The idea, indicated the Chamber, is to support on-site the work carried out by the Health authorities in early care and promotion of sanitary measures, especially in the areas of greatest contagion, which are mainly the Panamanian capital and the neighboring province of...
    By MARC LEVY, Associated Press HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania's Republican-controlled House of Representatives moved Wednesday to ensure that it can block Gov. Tom Wolf's effort to impose a price on greenhouse gas emissions from power plants as part of a consortium of states. Wolf, a Democrat, has made joining the 10-state Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, or RGGI, a centerpiece of his strategy to fight climate change in a major carbon-polluting state. But it is opposed by lawmakers who are historically protective of Pennsylvania’s coal and natural gas industries. Republicans joined with 26 Democrats from western and northern Pennsylvania, as well as Democrats aligned with blue-collar labor unions, to pass the bill, 130-71. Four Republicans from southeastern Pennsylvania joined most Democrats in opposition to it. Under the bill, legislative approval is required to join the consortium, after six months of public comment and four public hearings on the governor’s proposed...

(Peter Chumakov via The New York Times) MOSCOW — To the boys, it was just a sugary treat. To their parents, prominent medical researchers, what happened in their Moscow apartment that day in 1959 was a vital experiment with countless lives at stake — and their own children as guinea pigs. “We formed a kind of line,” Dr. Peter Chumakov, who was 7 at the time, recalled in an interview. Into each waiting mouth, a parent popped a sugar cube laced with weakened poliovirus — an early vaccine against a dreaded disease. “I was eating it from the hands of my mother.” Today, that same vaccine is gaining renewed attention from researchers — including those brothers, who all grew up to be virologists...
