    New York : Johnson & Johnson’s Covid-19 vaccine requires only one dose. Photo: PHILL MAGAKOE / . / . A key advisory panel to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) unanimously endorsed Johnson & Johnson’s one-shot coronavirus vaccine for emergency use on Friday, a critical step that paves the way to distribute a third preventive treatment in the United States in the next week. The non-binding decision of the FDA’s Advisory Committee on Vaccines and Related Biologics occurs when Joe Biden’s administration works for increase the supply of vaccine doses and vaccinate Americans as quickly as possibleCNBC reported. The country’s health officials are increasingly concerned about new emerging variants of the virus, particularly the B.1.351 strain from South Africa, which has been shown to reduce the effectiveness of vaccines that are on the market and in development.

    Just twenty years after the publication of the map of the human genome, a group of researchers has given “a giant step” on the path to genomic medicine, the one that seeks the greatest individualization in the treatment of patients. The advance consists of having sequenced 64 genomes with “an unprecedented resolution”, which has made it possible to discover the most hidden face of DNA. “The number is not relevant, what is relevant is that they were sequenced with high quality. The genome is something very complex and there are regions that with the technologies that we were using up to now we could see blurred. It is as if we had put on glasses and now them let us see with every level of detail, “explains biologist Bernardo Rodríguez-Martín. This Asturian is one of the three Spaniards participating in the study, published this Thursday in the magazine Science....
    KATE Ferdinand has hit back at an "offensive" claim that she could love her baby son Cree MORE than her step-children. The 29-year-old star welcomed her first child with husband Rio Ferdinand in December. 6Kate welcomed Cree, her first biological child, in December Although Cree is Kate's first biological child, the beauty was already step-mum to Rio's three children with late wife Rebecca; 14-year-old Lorenz, 12-year-old Tate, and nine-year-old Tia. The former Towie favourite admitted that she was asked about the difference in her love for the four children "a lot" as she addressed the issue in an Instagram Q&A last night. One well-meaning follower had asked: "Do you love your own child a lot more than step-children? I fear this will happen to me." Kate reassured the fan: "People ask me this a lot, and I can only speak for myself as everyone is different… 6The star branded the...

    BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany will have difficulties making use of all available COVID-19 vaccines in April, Chancellor Angela Merkel said in an interview with broadcaster ZDF on Friday. Once a 7-day coronavirus incidence of under 35 per 100,000 people is reached, further relaxations beyond the opening of shops may follow, she added. "For the next opening step after retail, we have to be careful whether we stay stable below 35," Merkel said. "When we have opened up shops and we are ... stable below 35 for two weeks, then we can consider the next step." The number of new daily infections in Germany has been falling, prompting some regional leaders to push for a timetable to ease the lockdown, which has been in place since mid-December. But concerns are growing about the impact of more infectious variants of the virus on case numbers. (Reporting by Andreas Rinke; writing by Kirsti...
    Pigs are capable of learning how to play simple video games, scientists have demonstrated, showing the animals to be more intelligent than was thought. Researchers from Canada taught four pigs to manipulate a joystick with their snouts, moving a cursor on a screen around to reach one of up to four target walls. Each of the four pigs displayed some conceptual understanding of both the game and the connection between the movement of the joystick control and the cursor. This was despite the fact that pigs are far-sighted animals with no opposable thumbs — a feat which the animal behaviour experts called 'remarkable'. Past studies have established that pigs are capable of various types of learning, from simple obedience commands like 'come' and 'sit' to more complex behaviours.  One study even demonstrated that pigs could use mirrors to help them find hidden food within an enclosure, while another revealed that...

    (CBS) — The first time CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards dared do a story, nearly two years ago, on those alleging sexual assault by the famed Father John Smyth, his supporters rallied and railed against the reporting. That was one accuser speaking up. Now settlements are happening in real time, one by one. It’s the startling fall for a man who was once one of the most popular priests in Chicago. CBS 2 has learned there are now 20 accusers, maybe more. Father John Smyth wasn’t just a man, his omnipresence enveloped Maryville Academy. He turned the once money-hemorrhaging albatross of an orphanage into a gold standard.

    WASHINGTON (WJZ) — The U.S. House of Representatives voted Friday in favor of a bill that would decriminalize marijuana nationwide, a move Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby called in an op-ed a “critical step toward a more fair, just and trustworthy legal system.” The bill, known as the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act of 2019, passed by a vote of 228-164. All seven of Maryland’s Democratic congressmen voted in favor, while the state’s lone Republican congressman, Andy Harris, voted in opposition. The legislation removes marijuana from the list of scheduled substances and also removes criminal penalties for anyone who possesses, manufactures or distributes it. A 5% tax on cannabis products would be established, with the money going into a trust fund. In an op-ed published Friday in the New York Daily News, Mosby and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) said the country “must start by addressing one of...
    (CNN)The final ballots are still being counted and recounted in some states, but the outcome is already clear: Americans have voted for democracy.Not even the threat of constitutional crisis can diminish the heroism of the local election officials, mail carriers and poll workers who made this possible; the election that many feared might collapse was in fact the most secure in American history. In the middle of a pandemic, Americans turned out in record numbers to exercise "the most powerful nonviolent tool we have in a democratic society," to quote the late Congressman John Lewis. Stephen HeintzAmerica's next president must now heed their voices with conviction -- and answer them with a commitment to reforms that will enliven, reimagine and reinvent our democratic culture and institutions.

    Prince Charles will not 'willingly step down from his destiny' to be king, a royal biographer has claimed.  Yesterday it was announced Britain will get an extra Bank Holiday in 2022 to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee, when Her Majesty will become the first British monarch to have reigned for 70 years.  Robert Lacey, who recently released biography Battle of the Brothers and has acted as a historian on the Netflix drama The Crown, told Good Morning Britain it's a clear sign that the monarch, 94, is 'determined to go on to the end'.  Prince Charles, who turns 72 tomorrow, is the longest-serving heir-apparent to the British throne and will be the oldest-ever King when he is crowned, but Lacey said he doesn't believe the Prince of Wales has any intention of stepping aside.  However, he said that given the Queen has engendered such loyalty and respect, the 'popular' Duke and...
    Chicago is experiencing a worse coronavirus outbreak this fall than when the pandemic began in the spring and the number of infections shows no “signs of slowing down,” the city’s public health chief said Thursday. At a news conference Thursday, Chicago Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady said the city is registering an average of 1,395 cases per day, a number they had tried to keep below 200. Arwady said it was during the summer months when the city was able to maintain that figure. “I keep hearing from people here in Chicago who think we’re not talking about them … my goal is for each of you to recognize that when we ask you to duplicate efforts to prevent contagion, know that we are addressing absolutely everyone,” Arwady said. “There is not a single person in Chicago who is not in some way or...
    The Grammy Awards have changed the name of their best world music album category to the best global music album, an attempt to find “a more relevant, modern and inclusive term.” The Recording Academy said in a statement that the new name “symbolizes a departure from the connotations of colonialism, folk and ‘non-American’ that the former term embodied.” “As we continue to embrace a truly global mindset, we update our language to reflect a more appropriate categorization that seeks to engage and celebrate the current scope of music from around the world," the statement said. The step comes some five months after the Academy made changes to several Grammy Awards categories, including renaming the best urban contemporary album category to best progressive R&B album.

    BOSTON (CBS) – Fifteen more Massachusetts cities and towns have been forced to take a step back in their reopening because of a rise in coronavirus cases. Starting Monday, the 15 communities moving from Step 2 of Phase 3 back to Step 1 are Abington, Berkley, Canton, East Longmeadow, Fairhaven, Fall River, Hanover, Hanson, Hingham, Marshfield, Milford, Pembroke, Rockland, Wakefield and Weymouth. All have been in the high-risk red zone for three consecutive weeks, according to the Department of Public Health.

    BRENTWOOD — Brentwood took a first step toward beefing up fire services on Tuesday by tentatively agreeing to spend $1.5 million annually — but only if fire district partners Oakley and Contra Costa County put in their fair share. The joint funding arrangement, which the council unanimously approved following a long discussion, will give the cash-strapped East Contra Costa Fire Protection District what it needs to create a fourth crew of nine firefighters to operate out of one of the existing stations. Fire Chief Brian Helmick has said the district has half the recommended stations and firefighters that it needs to serve its 128,000 residents and 249 square miles. He and others have also looked elsewhere for more funds, including new community facility districts for all new developments, increased fire impact fees and possible revenue from existing residents. The district and neighboring Contra Costa Fire Protection District are considering consolidating...

    Gregg Williams said he believes Quinnen Williams has already taken “the next step” in his evolution as a player. The Jets’ second-year defensive lineman didn’t shoot down such praise from his defensive coordinator, yet there is so much more he feels capable of being able to do right now. Week 1, in his eyes, wasn’t good enough. “I got to do much more. I have to go out there and give it my all — every single play, every single down,” the 6-foot-3, 303-pound lineman said Friday. “I got to be a dog out there on the field, man.” After a lackluster rookie year in which he missed three games because of injury and produced 2.5 sacks and 28 tackles in 13 games, Quinnen Williams got into better shape in the offseason, dropping six pounds and adding muscle after changing his diet and training routine. In August, the third-overall pick...

And we are looking forward to more. That’s because it’s a blessing to be a foster parent, especially to a teenager. Older children in foster care need more New Yorkers to step up to fill the role.  As a foster parent 22 times over, I highly recommend it. We became foster parents when our biological daughter left for college over 15 years ago. Being empty nesters did not suit us; we loved the energy of having kids in the house and being able to offer guidance to someone who’s on the precipice of adulthood. New York City has made big strides in reducing the number of kids entering foster care by instituting interventions to keep families together....
    LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said Thursday that a proposed $600 million deal between the state of Michigan and residents of the city of Flint who were harmed by lead-tainted water is a step toward making amends for a disaster that upended life in the city. “What happened in Flint should have never happened, and financial compensation with this settlement is just one of the many ways we can continue to show our support for the city of Flint and its families,” Whitmer said, adding that she was “deeply sorry for the uncertainty and troubles” the crisis had caused. The disaster made Flint a nationwide symbol of governmental mismanagement. More than two years of negotiations between the state and attorneys representing thousands of city residents produced an agreement to create a fund from which victims will be able to seek payments. “Flint residents have endured more than most,...

    By JOHN O'CONNOR and SARA BURNETT, Associated Press SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — State Sen. Iris Martinez, a respected and influential state and national Democratic Party leader, on Thursday joined a burgeoning group of Democratic lawmakers — all women — calling for Michael Madigan to relinquish his decades-long grip on Illinois politics by resigning as party leader, House speaker, or both, since he was implicated in a federal bribery investigation. Two others making similar demands Thursday bring to seven the number of Democratic women in the General Assembly wanting Madigan to surrender his virtual control of the Capitol after federal prosecutors named him in a criminal investigation. In the July 17 deferred prosecution agreement, ComEd acknowledged it used bribes in Springfield to get legislation favorable to the utility giant and that it involved the speaker of the House, without naming the 78-year-old Madigan. “It’s very clear in what you’re reading in...
    MCKEESPORT, Pa. (KDKA) — Will students go back to school in a few weeks or not? It’s the big question that school administrations across the state and country are trying to figure out while the coronavirus pandemic rages on. “I have a doctorate, but it’s in education. It’s not a medical degree. I’m having to make medical decisions I’m just not comfortable with,” said Dr. Mark Holtzman. Holtzman is the superintendent of McKeesport Area School District. He said he’s just one of many school leaders in Allegheny County looking to the Health Department for specific guidelines. “It’s been very challenging. It would be very helpful if there were more standards or expectations that are clearer,” Holtzman said. Holtzman told KDKA that schools in Bucks and Chester counties received step-by-step instructions that each district can follow. “That was created by a request from his superintendents in Bucks County,” Holtzman said.

    The View hosts teamed up on Friday to praise Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and denounce sexism after her week-long spat with Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), which began when the congressman allegedly called her a “f*cking b*tch” on the steps of the Capitol. Yoho reportedly berated Ocasio-Cortez on Monday calling her “disgusting” and a “f*cking b*tch” over disagreements with the House’s crime bill. After facing criticism, the Florida representative later made an apology but denied the claims of name-calling, which earned him even more backlash. Ocasio-Cortez vocally rejected the statement as an apology, pointing out that he never mentioned her name. The New York representative then tore into Yoho on the House floor on Thursday — noting that he cited his daughters in his statement, adding, “I am someone’s daughter too. My father, thankfully, not alive to see how Mr. Yoho treated his daughter.” Yoho issued his own statement regarding the incident,...
    The coronavirus continues its unstoppable advance in South America, where Brazil and Peru are the worst affected while the rest of the region reports new records, according to the latest data on Sunday. Brazil, the second country most affected in the world by the new coronavirus pandemic after the United States, recorded in the last 24 hours 23,529 new confirmed cases and 716 deaths from COVID-19, as reported on Sunday by the Ministry of Health.

    Marvin EllisonJim Spellman | WireImage | Getty Images When Lowe's CEO Marvin Ellison took the helm at one of the nation's largest retailers, he looked around and saw he was surrounded by mostly white executives at his own company and in the business world.  It was not a new experience for him. Ellison was born to parents who worked as sharecroppers. He grew up in a segregated community in the south. Now, he is one of four Black CEOs in the Fortune 500. But he said he's tired of seeing CEOs and others pledge to add diversity and fight racism, but do little.

    Reuters June 29, 2020 0 Comments More U.S. states and businesses on Monday rolled back plans to reopen their economies, citing surges in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations, as the government’s top infectious disease specialist blamed the spikes on Americans ignoring public health guidelines. The rises in confirmed cases and hospitalizations have been most pronounced in Sun Belt states such as Florida, Texas and Arizona that defied advice from health experts to wait longer before easing restrictions. “That’s a recipe for disaster,” Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told CNN in an interview broadcast on Monday. “Now we’re seeing the consequences of community spread, which is even more difficult to contain than spread in a well-known physical location like a prison or nursing home or meatpacking place,” Fauci said in the interview, which was recorded on Friday. The New York Times reported on Monday...

    President Trump said on Monday that he would be happy to meet with Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro, but only to get him to step down. “Unlike the radical left, I will ALWAYS stand against socialism and with the people of Venezuela. My Admin has always stood on the side of FREEDOM and LIBERTY and against the oppressive Maduro regime!,” the president said in a tweet. “I would only meet with Maduro to discuss one thing: a peaceful exit from power!,” Trump added. The US is among the countries that do not recognize Maduro as the leader of the South American country and have thrown their support behind Juan Guaidó, the opposition leader. The tweet clarified comments Trump made in an interview published Sunday night with Axios in which he said he would be open to sitting down with the authoritarian Maduro, who was charged earlier this year by the Department...
    Babies on board. As news broke that Kristen Wiig and fiancé Avi Rothman welcomed twins via surrogate earlier this year, the family was spotted out and about for a walk in Los Angeles on Wednesday. The “Bridesmaids” star and her husband-to-be each wore a baby carrier as they strolled through their neighborhood. They protected their babies from the sun with coordinating patterned bucket hats. Wiig, 46, also concealed herself with the help of an oversized hat and scarf around her face. Wiig appeared to hint at becoming a mom during the “Saturday Night Live” Mother’s Day special. “I don’t know if I truly appreciated my mom the first 45 years of my life,” she said. “But this year I’m feeling especially grateful for her advice, her love. I’m so thankful for all the things she’s taught me, like preparing me to be a mom myself.” Wiig and Rothman got engaged...
    The SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule that’s orbiting the Earth with two U.S. astronauts is the picture of New Space Age glamour. It’s a sleek, stylish commercially made capsule that’s destined to be featured beside Italian sports cars in future design textbooks. Just don’t tell that to Elon Musk, SpaceX’s chief executive and chief designer. “Is a Ferrari more reliable than a Toyota Corolla or a Honda Civic?” he once asked a space journalist. The answer, of course, is that the simpler sedans are far more reliable than the well-crafted sports car. So SpaceX, Musk made clear, was going to make Corollas. It’s a practically minded outlook for a company founded on the galactically large ambition to transform humanity into a multiplanetary species. But Musk and SpaceX implicitly understand something that national space programs haven’t really accepted: Success in space exploration isn’t, ultimately, about achieving “firsts” like the moon landing. Rather,...
    The filing of charges Wednesday against four fired Minneapolis police officers indicates the wheels of justice are turning quickly to hold accountable the individuals accused of responsibility for the death of George Floyd, a black man who was handcuffed on the ground and not resisting arrest. The charges are good news for Floyd’s family and good news for our nation, though tragically nothing can bring Floyd back to life or ease the pain of his loved ones and millions of people who never knew him but have been deeply affected by his death. Americans of good faith all welcome clear signals that police brutality is being taken seriously and addressed in a productive way. ROB SMITH: GEORGE FLOYD PROTESTS AND AMERICA'S LOST BLACK BOYS AND YOUNG MEN The announcement that former officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with second-degree murder (up from an original charge of third-degree murder) and that...
