It’s like music to the ears; Old Man Winter is melting away, making room for warmer days. Sunshine kissed the faces of all who went outside on Friday.

    By ANDREA RODRÍGUEZ, Associated Press HAVANA (AP) — Business was booming for a trendy little clothing shop called Clandestina in the heart of Old Havana, one of thousands of new private businesses that had arisen in what was once a near-wholly state-run socialist economy. A torrent of tourists poured through the doors to pick through bags, sweatshirts, camisoles and caps — at least until the Trump administration turned off the taps that had been opened just a few years before by then-President Barack Obama. Today, those glass-and-wood doors swing open less often, with tourism choked both by U.S. sanctions meant to punish Cuba's government and a pandemic that has squashed tourism almost everywhere. With their business tottering, Clandestina's owners — Idania Del Río and Leire Fernández — subsist on hope that new U.S. President Joe Biden will reverse at least some of the restrictions implemented by his predecessor. “If Biden...

    Scott Emerson has heard the argument that pitchers should throw fewer innings in 2021 after an abbreviated 2020 season. The Oakland Athletics’ fifth-year pitching coach is not ignoring it. He just doesn’t subscribe to its reasoning. The way Emerson sees it, that line of thinking is incomplete. It lacks what he believes is critical evidence, something he thinks there is no way to collect until after the upcoming season is over. “There’s no data,” Emerson said on Tuesday. “Someone would have to really give me some data to support why we should look into guys not throwing as many innings as they did in [2019].” The A’s starting pitchers are expected to be ready to throw roughly 100 pitches by Opening Day and the organization has been preparing them to do so through simulated games against A’s hitters. Ramping up towards what is expected to...
    The researcher at IDIBAPS-Hospital Clínic Felipe Garcia leads a project together with other centers in Barcelona, ​​Madrid, Santiago de Compostela and Brussels to develop the first Spanish messenger RNA vaccine against Covid-19, which he hopes can start shipping next year. The mRNA method is the one used by Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, but the vaccine that is developed in Spain, says García, has some differences: “We have designed the RNA in a different way: they took all the complete protein S and we chose some pieces, those that generate the greatest response from the immune system, following a computational model “. Regarding its effectiveness, it considers that “it should be similar” or even “in the longer term”, but remarks that it is still too early to tell. In addition, researchers are studying how this vaccine does not require the ‘deep freezing’ that Pfizer and Moderna do. Human trials and efficacy...

    STOCKTON (CBS13) — California is now allocating 40% of vaccine supply to low-income communities. It’s a new curveball in an already rocky rollout for the coronavirus vaccine, as the state is striving for more equitable distribution.

    President Biden agreed to scuttle a resolution denouncing Iran’s secret nuclear research, as three European allies dropped a planned confrontation in another attempt to facilitate talks to rehabilitate the 2015 nuclear deal with Tehran. “The E3 decided, with the full support of the United States, that the best way to support the at the [International Atomic Energy Agency's] process was to refrain from putting forward the draft resolution,” State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters Thursday. “We are pleased with the outcome of the IAEA Board of Governors meeting with respect to Iran.” The United Nations watchdog’s quarterly meeting began Monday with a bang, as IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi declared himself “deeply concerned that undeclared nuclear material may have been present at [an] undeclared location.” That announcement spurred European officials to draft a new censure of Tehran, as Russia and China warned any rebuke would jeopardize...
    Pope Francis’ upcoming visit to Iraq will happen amid a pandemic and recent rocket attacks targeting air bases in the country, making it an especially dangerous trip.

    DENVER (CBS4) – CBS4 is partnering with the Denver Rescue Mission to spread the warmth this winter. Last year, the Denver Rescue Mission provided more than 380,000 nights of shelter. For nearly 4,000 guests, it was their first time in a shelter. (credit: CBS) “That’s kind of a misconception about a lot of guests who are experiencing homelessness, that they don’t have jobs. They just may not be able to afford a place to live,” said Kevin Baker, Director of Food Services at the Denver Rescue Mission. CBS4’s Spread the Warmth campaign collects money and raises awareness for the Denver Rescue Mission.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci cast doubts Tuesday on whether life would be back to normal by March 2022 as the coronavirus pandemic continues. “I don’t think we’re going to be completely normal a year from now,” Fauci said. “But I hope we’re well on the way to normality so that we can ultimately get the world protected at the same time as we get economic recovery so that all the unintended consequences of shutting down begin to normalize, including other health issues that have arisen because of the shutdown.” Fauci spoke about the fight against the coronavirus during an event organized by the University of Edinburgh. His comments clash with President Joe Biden’s prediction Tuesday life would be mostly back to normal in March 2022. “I’ve been cautioned not to give an answer to that because we don’t know for sure,” Biden said to a reporter. “But my hope is by...

Around the world, games and events were canceled or postponed, forcing teams and organizations to adapt, CBS2’s Otis Livingston reported.

    (CNN)It may not feel like it right now after a horrific winter, but America has never experienced a moment this hopeful since the pandemic began.The tantalizing promise borne by the quickening rollout of new vaccines, however, is tempered by warnings from President Joe Biden's team that a new cycle of sickness, death and isolation may loom if the country tries to grab its freedom too fast.On Monday, it emerged publicly that three companies -- Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson -- will deliver sufficient doses to fully vaccinate 130 million people -- one-third of the population -- by the end of March. And the news gets better. The firms told a key House committee last week that they expect to provide enough vaccine for more than 400 million people -- way more than the US population -- by the end of July.Signs of optimism meanwhile in nations such as Israel...
    Miami : The Biden administration has reported that it will allow migrant families separated at the border during the tenure of its predecessor Donald Trump to regroup and remain on US soil. The information was released by Alejandro Mayorkas, during a press conference at the White House, who also reported that “We hope to reunite families, either here or in their country of origin. We hope to be able to give them the option… If, indeed, they seek to regroup here in the United States, we will explore legal alternatives for them to remain in the United States, ”he explained. It should be noted that the policy adopted by the Trump administration caused the separation of approximately 2,800 families in 2018, according to a count reflected by the newspaper The Hill.
    In his first 10 days as president, Joe Biden visited wounded service members at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. The visit was more than a somber return to the place where his son, Beau, died from a rare brain cancer in 2015. It was a sign to ailing veterans and advocacy groups that the president might deliver the care post-9/11 veterans have struggled for decades to get. “Beau Biden almost certainly died of exposure, probably to a burn pit,” said Afghanistan veteran Mark Jackson, who works on behalf of veterans suffering rare diseases and ailments after being stationed at a contaminated secret base in Uzbekistan known as K2. “Rare cancer is rare cancer,” he said. “And I know a dozen or more people that died of that same cancer.

    A United States airstrike in eastern Syria late Thursday should have targeted "something that threatened the United States of America," former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told "The Ingraham Angle". "You've got to protect your force, you've got to establish deterrence," Pompeo told host Laura Ingraham. "We did this a couple of times, it was effective. "I don't know what they struck or what targets they went after," Pompeo added. "I hope it just wasn't bombs in the desert. I hope it really went after something that threatened the United States of America. If not, it's useless." The airstrikes targeted facilities near the Syria-Iraq border used by Iran-backed militia groups. The strike came more than a week after a rocket attack in northern Iraq that killed a civilian contractor and wounded a U.S. service member and other coalition personnel.  US LAUNCHES AIRSTRIKES AGAINST IRAN-BACKED FORCES IN SYRIA On Monday, a rocket attack...

    Children in Maryland may soon be free to operate lemonade stands without restriction if a bill going through the General Assembly is passed. HB0961, introduced by Del. Neil Parrott, R-Washington, would bar local jurisdictions from stopping or regulating minors from selling nonalcoholic drinks on private property. “Basically it’s a protection,” Parrott testified during the bill’s hearing in the House Environment and Transportation Committee on Friday. “Lemonade stands are kind of like apple pie in America, and baseball.” Currently, Maryland law requires a person to acquire certain permits and licenses before they may operate a stand—or any food establishment, with a few exceptions—all of which would be “issued and enforced by local health departments,” Capital News Service learned from the bill’s fiscal and policy analysis. This is all to ensure that food supplied in the state is healthy and free of contaminants, according to the analysis. GianCarlo Canaparo, a legal fellow...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — A San Francisco woman has spent 21 years creating miracles for high-risk teenagers, helping transform campus truants into high school graduates. Dr. Teri Lynch Delane designed the dormitory on Treasure Island to look and feel like home. For two dozen students, it’s a safe place to live while they go to school next door with other students at the city-funded Life Learning Academy.

    Close to a year ago, life as we previously knew it changed overnight as the COVID-19 pandemic hit the United States. As cases arrived and spread across Minnesota, many of our daily routines came to a screeching halt as difficult choices were made in our communities over whether to continue functioning as “normal.” As a private Catholic high school based in Victoria, determining what our “normal” should look like was the immediate question. We understood the seriousness of COVID-19, and saw the pain and risk experienced by many as a result. We also knew that to continue in-person learning as safely and effectively as before, we would need to do so with the full support of our teachers, staff, students and their families.

    Pablo Reyes Altamira / 02.14.2021 13:13:51 During Donald Trump’s period in the United States, the export of Altamira’s cattle decreased due to the fact that they increased the padlocks in the Free Trade Agreement and asked to do the health and safety studies twice before sending, which represented an increase in spending. Dimas Salazar Rodríguez, livestock representative and former Altamira trustee, specified that before it was done once and the heads of beef were sent, but now a previous one and a second must be done already when they go out, so many chose to send less. « It is not that we have stopped sending cattle to the United States, it only decreased because it began to be more expensive, now we have to do the studies twice when before it was only done once, I hope that everything improves with the new president, that is...

    Pentagon authorizes more troops to assist with vaccine effort As impeachment trial ends, GOP senators face big decision Column: How often have tax cuts for the rich trickled down to the rest of us? Never We can probably stipulate that almost no one really believes that tax cuts for the rich are good for the economy. © (Associated Press) Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) proposed a wealth tax during her presidential campaign in 2020. (Associated Press) The claim has become so closely identified with Republican ideologues and their patrons — that is, the rich themselves — that it no longer has much purchase in public debate. It's still GOP orthodoxy, however, so a new study published by the London School of Economics debunking it with hard data is useful. The effect size of major tax cuts for the rich on real GDP per capita is close to...
    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – What’s normally a time of celebration has many members of the Asian American Pacific Islander community on edge this year. With a surge of violence nationwide and in the region, California lawmakers hope to change that. “One of the hardest years of my life,” said Huan Tham, owner of Pho Bac Hoa Viet.

Recently, there have been violent attacks on elderly members in the Bay Area and racist graffiti seen on restaurants here in Elk Grove. The Stop AAPI Hate Project tracked nearly 3,000 hate crimes against California communities...

    President Joe Biden charmed reporters with stories about his “love affair” with First Lady Dr. Jill Biden and praise for his dogs, Champ Biden and Major Biden, and even gave one reporter his own personal cup of coffee.

    By DAVID SHARP, Associated Press FALMOUTH, Maine (AP) — Donald Verger has been putting heart into his art during the pandemic. And images of those intricate hearts made from vibrant sea glass are flowing back to schools and hospitals that have been hard hit by COVID-19 during the pandemic. “The hearts hit a sweet spot for people," Verger said. "People love sea glass, the color, the patterns.” Across the country, many artists find themselves struggling during the pandemic, but they're also finding ways to give back during a health crisis that has claimed more than 465,000 lives in the United States. Verger's efforts represent his small but colorful contribution to the effort to bring people a smile, or maybe a moment of calm and peace, amid the isolation of the pandemic. He’s sent about 25,000 postcards of his hearts and landscape photography to schools and hospitals. He delivers them at...

    Rudy Giuliani discussed former President Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial on his radio program on Thursday afternoon, saying that he hoped Trump’s lawyers were “competent” — but he defined “competent” as being willing to put forward the same election fraud conspiracy theories he had on his website. “I would like to see in this impeachment that his lawyers do a good job of separating [Trump] from the riot because there’s no connection between the two things,” Giuliani said. He then claimed to have “a good deal of material that shows that outside people organized that riot, and they were organizing for days and days and days, and many of them are enemies of his,” saying that he had put the evidence on his website, including “text messages from Antifa people to come there and get rid of him, get him out of office.” This reporter perused the ironically-named “Rudy Giuliani’s...
