    Resist, Rishi AMID all the back-slapping about the vaccine roll-out, and hopes of returning freedoms, it cannot be forgotten that the economy is still in intensive care.

Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 3Rishi Sunak must know that no tax hike can immediately fill the black hole in Britain’s finances caused by CovidCredit: Reuters The Chancellor has played a blinder through the pandemic by keeping the fragile economy on life support, but a wrong move now could pull the plug on the crucial bounce-back. The respected Institute for Fiscal Studies is the latest to warn that any hike in taxes in the Budget could kill off the recovery before it has a chance to get going. At the same time, there is yet more evidence of the...
    SHE once claimed “England doesn’t like me any more” – but that could be about to change for Joss Stone after winning hit show The Masked Singer. The 33-year-old, who was unveiled as the Sausage on Saturday night’s final, has had plenty of flak since rising to fame as a 16-year-old soul-singing sensation. 12The Masked Singer winner Joss Stone says it was 'great not being judged' while dressed as the SausageCredit: David Venni / Chilli Media But she was the pick of the ITV show’s studio audience — albeit while disguised in a mask — in front of ten million viewers at home. After her triumph, a shocked Joss said: “Isn’t it amazing? I don’t think it’s the voice. I learned that at the beginning. It’s got to be about the laughs. “It’s really just being able to have fun and not be judged as well. “I know you’re getting...
    The Duchess of Sussex is ‘unlikely’ to accompany her husband, Prince Harry, when he plans to return to the UK in early summer. The sixth in line to the throne will almost certainly travel to see his family for the first time since the couple acrimoniously quit as working royals alone, multiple sources have told the Daily Mail. Insiders stress that the couple’s plans have yet to be finalised and much depends on the pandemic and whether travel restrictions remain in place at the time. Prince Harry is expected to fly back to the UK over the summer - depending on Covid-19 travel restrictions - though it is not known whether he will be joined by his wife and son In June and July there are some important dates on the royal calendar that Meghan might miss Sources were at pains to stress that Meghan’s tentative decision...
    The New York Times star reporter on the coronavirus pandemic, Donald McNeil Jr., 66, has been accused of making offensive comments, including using the N-word on a 2019 student trip to Peru The New York Times has stopped short of firing one of its most prominent reporters despite claims he used the N-word during a Times-branded student trip to Peru. Donald McNeil Jr., 66, whose writing on the coronavirus pandemic over the last year has been submitted for a Pulitzer prize, is alleged to have used the racial slur in front of a group of 26 students and some of their parents.  But the Times has decided not to fire him after its editor believed McNeil did not use the words with 'hateful or malicious' intent. The incident comes just a week after the paper ended the contract of an editor after she tweeted that she had 'chills' watching President-elect...

    Ex-FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb has weighed in on the vaccine distribution spat slamming the government for holding back Pfizer jabs from states saying it is 'not the right decision' while 'we're at the peak of the epidemic'.   Gottlieb, who headed up the Food and Drug Administration from 2017 until April 2019 and is now on the board of Pfizer, accused the government of 'throttling' the supply to US states and said it would be more effective to get 'as many shots in arms' as possible right now.  'They are being throttled, and I think the government has admitted they're doing that. They are holding back doses,' he told MSNBC Friday. His comments came one day after Pfizer said it had 'millions of doses' of its COVID-19 vaccine sitting in warehouses but were still awaiting shipping instructions from the federal government. Government officials then hit back saying this had been the plan all along...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Pfizer’s COVID vaccine has made it to Florida, with Jackson Health System expecting vials on Tuesday. Ahead of the vaccine rollout, CBS4’s Peter D’Oench spoke with frontline workers at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Some said they will take the vaccine right away, while others said they’ll will wait. “Would you be taking it?” D’Oench asked Dr. Mary Sokoloski, a pediatric cardiology at JMH. “Yes,” Dr. Sokoloski said. “Why?” D’Oench followed up. “I think it best for everyone over to take the vaccine,” Dr. Sokoloski said. Over in Broward, Memorial Healthcare System received its initial shipment Monday morning. As per CDC guidelines, it’s being used to inoculate South Florida’s frontline workers in contact with COVID patients. Dr. Sokoloski is grateful Jackson Memorial Hospital is next in line to receive the Pfizer vaccine. “Does it give you room for optimism?” D’Oench asked. “Yes, there’s a feeling of hope knowing it’s...
    A Florida megachurch pastor has urged his congregants against taking the COVID-19 vaccine,  falsely claiming it will 'alter your DNA' and be used to track people down, and to 'believe in divine immunity' instead. Guillermo Maldonado, who is the founding Pentecostal pastor of King Jesus International Ministry based in Miami and is an avid Trump supporter, preached conspiracies about the vaccine to his congregation on Sunday.   'That is exactly what’s happening with COVID-19. They’re preparing the structure for the anti-Christ,' he said in a live-streamed bilingual sermon. 'The vaccine. They’re going to demand for you to have a vaccine in your passport and seal it. Otherwise, you will not able to travel. Because they’re preparing the way in the vaccine. [The vaccines] are made to alter your DNA,' he added. The FDA is slated to make its recommendation today on the Pfizer vaccine, which has already been approved in the...

    Jimmy Kimmel went off on NBC for hosting a town hall with President Donald Trump that directly competes with ABC’s Joe Biden town hall — questioning if the network is going to air a “new Bill Cosby special” next. Kimmel, who works for ABC, noted that there should have been a debate tomorrow night, but the president refused to settle for a virtual format once he tested positive for the coronavirus. The host then explained that because there would be no debate, Biden agreed to do a town hall on ABC Thursday night, but now, Trump is also doing a town hall on NBC at the same exact time as the Democratic presidential nominee. “So, that settles it — now I know what I’m gonna do: I’m going to vote for both of them, right?” Kimmel joked. “Thanks, NBC. First The Apprentice and now this. Why not a new Bill Cosby special while...
            by Anthony Gockowski  A journalist for Alpha News was harassed and assaulted Monday night while covering a Black Lives Matter protest in downtown Minneapolis. Rebecca Brannon, an independent journalist who contributes video and photo stories for Alpha News, was identified by several agitators who recognized her from her coverage of previous events. The group then proceeded to follow Brannon as she walked to her car, shouted profanities at her, and eventually assaulted her. “Get the f—k out of here! You’re not welcome here,” the group of demonstrators shouted at Brannon, who attempted to explain that she didn’t need to leave because she was on a public sidewalk. “I think you need to go. It’s not going to go well for you,” added one man who was walking with the perpetrators. The agitators later stole Brannon’s phone from her and tossed it into a fountain. Although...
    In terms of drama, the doubleheader Sunday between the Reds and Tigers was closer to a couple of episodes of “The Sopranos” than a back-to-back marathon of “The Godfather” and “The Godfather, Part II.” On “The Sopranos,” there always was the sense that the end of the program was coming soon, so stuff was going to happen quickly. It was like that in the two games the Tigers and Reds played, the first-ever MLB doubleheader in which the two games were scheduled for seven innings. Reds centerfielder Nick Senzel told Sporting News “for sure” there was more urgency to the two games of the doubleheader, which Cincinnati swept. “Those seven innings, everyone’s really locked in to every single pitch,” he said. “Because you erase two innings, so much is going on. I think the intensity is there, for sure, in both those seven-inning games. “The seven-inning doubleheader, we kind of liked.”...
    This week, public school teachers in DC — who, you understand, care for nothing as much as educating the children and equipping a new generation with the tools they will need to succeed in life — protested the plan to possibly reopen schools in the fall by placing fake body bags outside of the school district’s offices. Striking a careful balance between absurd melodrama and shameless self-aggrandizement, one of the bags was accompanied by a cardboard gravestone that said “RIP Favorite Teacher.” Others read “killed in the line of duty” and “how many will you let die?” Many activist teachers across the country have been engaging in similar theatrics for weeks now. A recent CNN article warns that educators are preparing their wills in anticipation of going back to work, an act apparently tantamount to being sent to death row. Indeed, a recent article on a website for educators called Bored...
    Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York City For 22 years, brother-owned company Top Trenz has been a one-stop-shop for kids’ products. A real soup-to-nuts shop. So when the pandemic hit in April, customers began flooding the inbox of owners Corey and Jamie Glassberg with requests for protective masks.  As a seasoned designer, manufacturer, and distributor of consumer products, Top Trenz answered the call and introduced a line of face-covering, Mask Appeal. The masks can be worn during the summer months thanks to a breathable premium polyester blend. Each mask has a second inner layer of 100% cotton for added protection and comes with a moldable nose bridge and adjustable earloops for a secure fit. There’s also a built-in pocket for the optional insert of a filter.  “Our goal was to make face masks that would be less scary...
    John Bolton claimed Sunday morning that Donald Trump denying a report claiming he knew Russia paid the Taliban to kill U.S. troops is ‘unconnected to the reality,’ but asserts this is the standard for the president.  'There's a lot we don't know so we should be cautious, but from what we do know from the president's own tweets this morning, to me it looks like just another day at the office in the Trump White House,' Bolton told NBC News' Meet the Press. The former national security adviser is on a media tour promoting his new book, 'The Room Where it Happened: A White House Memoir,' about his 17 months as one of Trump's top aides. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded that Trump confront the Russians, telling ABC News on Sunday that his denial of the report is 'as bad as it gets.' 'This is as bad as it gets...
    Patients are being offered cosmetic surgery to banish stubborn eye-bags – while awake and with their eyes wide open.  While certainly not for the faint-hearted, the method involves three minimally invasive procedures, each lasting less than two hours. Unlike normal under-eye lift surgery, which involves incisions below the lower lid and the removal of bulging tissue beneath the skin, the new technique involves just three tiny cuts close to the eyelashes. Dr Sabrina Shah-Desai, who pioneered the technique, says: 'Interfering with the fat pads in the cheek means patients often need to be put to sleep because there's a risk of nerve damage if the patient flinches. But I avoid excessive touching in this area, which allows me to keep patients awake.' Kimberly James, 51, from Essex, pictured left before the procedure and right after, describes the results of her treatment as 'life-changing' Keeping patients lucid also gives surgeons a...

    In a stunning display of hypocrisy and low self-awareness, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, who himself participated in protests that are themselves a giant violation of the city's COVID-19 guidelines, scolded New York police officers who, according to him, were not wearing masks during the course of controlling the crowds. On at least one of those occasions, as noted by the featured image in this story, de Blasio was not wearing a face mask at all. According to the New York Post, de Blasio made the comments on Sunday. In the remarks, which were carried on C-SPAN, de Blasio claimed, "We've seen too many officers who just have [masks] off, and it's painful to people because it feels like they're flouting the rules. The issue of masks and face coverings remains the subject of considerable scientific debate, particularly whether such masks are efficacious and whether they might, in...
