    Coronavirus vaccination efforts across the United States have prioritized the residents and staff of nursing homes, but a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Monday reveals that only 37.5 percent of caregivers at the homes accepted the vaccine when offered the shot, as covered by ABC News. This is the first national-level report on the topic and it studied 11,460 skilled nursing facilities that conducted at least one vaccination clinic between the middle of December and the middle of January. “The lower percentage of staff members vaccinated raises concern about low coverage among a population at high risk for occupational exposure to SARS-CoV-2,” read the report. The report looked to previous polls showing uncertainty among health care workers over concerns about the vaccine’s side effects and efficacy as an explanation for so many refusals.

    VIDEO4:2304:23Why Home Depot is a buy at these levels, according to traderTrading Nation Home Depot is marching its way back to highs. Its share price has added 7% this year and now sits just 3% from its all-time high set in August. The stock has been one of the best Dow performers over the past year, buoyed by a focus on home improvement during the pandemic. Those trends should continue to drive Home Depot even higher, according to TradingAnalysis.com founder Todd Gordon. One reason to be bullish, he says, is the latest housing data. Housing starts and building permits rose in December — up 5.8% and 4.5%, respectively — according to the Commerce Department.

At first blush, it seems like great news -- especially given the ever-dwindling supply of for-sale houses.

    Americans are looking around at the job landscape and realizing that a major upheaval like the coronavirus pandemic affects some companies more than others. “The COVID-19 pandemic shifted the focus of job-seekers toward larger and more resilient companies,” according to Shai Bernstein, an associate professor of entrepreneurial management at Harvard Business School; Richard Townsend, an associate professor of finance at the University of California, San Diego; and Ting Xu, an assistant professor of finance at the University of Virginia. They studied job-search behavior on the AngelList Talent platform and found one common denominator: They showed greater interest in job advertisements from larger firms, particularly among searchers with more education and experience, after the onset of the pandemic. Job hunters also showed more flexibility, becoming more receptive to lower wages or jobs requiring relocation. “The findings raise questions about how the pandemic, or other economic downturns, affect the flow...

    The city of Raleigh, North Carolina, reported spent $165,420 over 8 months on police protection for local Police Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown’s home this year. The publicly funded protection began immediately after protestors showed up at Deck-Brown’s home in March, according to a report by WRAL.

    A South Bay church that has repeatedly defied shelter-in-place orders and racked up more than $1 million in fines is planning an indoor Christmas Eve service during California’s worst coronavirus surge yet.

And yet Calvary Chapel leadership shows no signs of letting up, with plans to host an indoor service on Christmas Eve, according to its website.

    VALLEJO — Three people are facing federal charges related to alleged drug trafficking after Drug Enforcement Administration agents raided a home and found evidence that they were pressing up thousands of pills containing methamphetamine, authorities said. The pills were colorful and shaped like Batman, Superman, or handguns, according to an affidavit by a DEA agent. They were being allegedly manufactured with a pill press machine also found in the residence. On Wednesday, federal prosecutors charged two men, Darren Mitchell and Ronald John Garnes, with possession with intent to distribute at least 500 grams of methamphetamine, though authorities say several kilograms of meth were found in the home. Additionally, Mitchell is being charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. The charges relate to a Tuesday morning raid at a home on the 100 block of Kemper Street in Vallejo. According to the affidavit, when authorities knocked on the...

    FULTON MARKET — Tech behemoth Google has once again pushed back its employees’ return to its offices, recommending they continue to work from home until at least the fall to guard against the spread of coronavirus. The company policy affects tens of thousands of employees across the United States and globally, including those based at the company’s Midwest headquarters at 1000 W. Fulton Market in the West Loop. Google had more than 1,200 employees in Chicago as of November 2019, according to the Tribune. In an email to employees, Google CEO Sundar Pichai notified employees the company is extending its work from home option through September, according to The New York Times. When offices reopen, Google plans to adopt a “flexible workweek” with employees working from the office three days a week, according to the report. “We are testing a hypothesis that a flexible work model will lead to greater productivity, collaboration and...
    A budding rapper and father to five children died after a window of a home he was trying to burglarize collapsed onto his neck, leaving his body dangling outside of the house, according to sheriff’s deputies. Jonathan Hernandez, 32, was trying to burglarize a home in the southwestern Florida town of Lehigh Acres on Saturday when the fatal accident occurred, investigators said.

By the time deputies arrived on the scene, Hernandez was dead, his right arm hanging at his side while his entire body was limp as his head was stuck in the window at a height of some 5.5ft off the ground. Hernandez was known to his friends and fans as 'Taz UFO' or 'UFO'...

    Americans are looking around at the jobs landscape, and realizing that a major upheaval like the coroanavirus pandemic affects some companies more than others. “The COVID-19 pandemic shifted the focus of job-seekers toward larger and more resilient companies,” according to Shai Bernstein, associate professor of entrepreneurial management at Harvard Business School, Richard Townsend, associate professor of finance at the University of California, San Diego, and Ting Xu, assistant professor of finance at the University of Virginia. They studied job-search behavior on the AngelList Talent platform, and found greater relative interest in job advertisements from larger firms, particularly among searchers with more education and experience, after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Job hunters also showed more flexibility, becoming more receptive to lower wages or jobs requiring relocation. “The findings raise questions about how the pandemic, or other economic downturns, affect the flow of talent to start-up entrepreneurial firms,”...

    A real estate investor in Portland, Oregon, said he would sell a foreclosed home back to its occupants after anti-gentrification protests barricaded the building for three days. The Kinneys, a black and indigenous family, have lived in the home since the 1950s. They purchased the house with cash at a time when the city's redlining policies prevented them from securing a mortgage, according to a website set up to support the Red House on Mississippi. Roman Ozeruga bought the home in 2018 for $260,000 at a foreclosure auction, according to WRAL. "We are a small family business — we don’t seek to hurt anyone, of course,” Ozeruga said. "We’re overwhelmed by the attention to this. We’ve already offered to sell back the property at cost because, of course, we’ve paid taxes, legal fees, bank fees, etc." In the intervening years between the Kinneys' purchase of the home and their...
    Money isn’t enough of a motive to keep young adults engaged at work during a global pandemic, a new report claims.  Forty-two percent of adults aged between 18 and 49 working from home say it’s been somewhat or very difficult to find motivation since the coronavirus pandemic began, according to a survey published recently by the Pew Research Center. That’s significantly more than the 20% of adults 50 and older who said their motivation was lacking during the new normal. The survey found there were myriad factors for why young people felt less on track at work while remote including distractions from lack of childcare and working in a more confined space. 42% of adults aged 18 to 49 working from home can't stay motivated, new research suggests. (iStock) Indeed, while more companies are allowing employees to work remotely, a number of those younger than 50 have said it's been...
    The runoff for Georgia’s Senate seat between Republican David Perdue and Democrat Jon Ossoff has consisted mostly of David Perdue hiding out and ducking questions concerning how much of a swamp creature he is. The levels of corruption that Perdue has reportedly been involved in seem to be newly revealed every day. It makes sense that Perdue was too cowardly to appear against Ossoff at a recent debate. Many of the questions Perdue faces these days are connected to his very prodigious stock trading activities and their proximity to the companies that he oversees in his Senate committees. His willingness to profit off of the misery of the American public and Georgians in particular is truly sociopathic. Now, ProPublica reports that the diversity of Sen. Perdue’s stock portfolio may only be rivaled by the diversity in his ability to leverage his position of power for personal profit. Georgia’s runoff election...
    NEW YORK – One by one, the fears creep in as Aura Morales rides the bus to her job at CVS in Los Angeles. A passenger boards without a mask but she doesn't dare confront him. More riders board and it's impossible to stay six feet apart. Driving to work isn't an option; Morales can't afford a car, especially after her work hours were cut. “I get on the bus, I just pray," said the 53-year-old. As the coronavirus rages across the U.S., grocery workers, health care professionals, university staffers, cleaning crews and others who don’t have the option to work from home must weigh safety against affordability when deciding how best to commute to their jobs. Those who can have ditched public transportation and drive to work instead, contributing to a boon in used car sales in the U.S., which spiked to their highest level on record in...
