    Cuomo has not been seen since February 24, when he opened a vaccine site. His last briefing where he took questions was on February 22  New York Governor Andrew Cuomo will  finally reappear before the public on Wednesday after 'hiding' for more than a week amid claims he sexually harassed three women.  The governor is holding a 1pm press briefing, hours after being slammed by Mayor de Blasio for hiding from the public and media amid the ongoing pandemic.  It's unclear if he plans to take questions on either the nursing home scandal or the sexual harassment scandal which has erupted last week.  Cuomo's office alerted the media that he'd be holding a 1pm briefing at 12.11pm.   Before today, Cuomo, 63, had not been seen at a public event on February 24. He was opening a vaccination site in the Bronx but did not take any questions from the...

    NEW DELHI (Reuters) - A landslide 20 kilometres west of Nanda Devi, India's second-highest peak, resulted in a flash flood on Feb. 7 that left more than 200 dead, and swept away two state hydro-electric projects, according to satellite imagery reviewed by Reuters. Avalanches and flash flooding in the Himalayas are common during summer and monsoon months, as melting snow and heavy rains combine. But incidents like this are rare so early in the year, alarming scientists studying climate change that is rapidly heating the world's highest mountains. Scientists are still studying the details of exactly what happened, but said heavy snowfall followed by bright sunshine led to snow-melt in the area. That could have triggered a chain reaction that led to an avalanche and heavy flow of ice, water, rocks and debris surging down the Dhauliganga River valley and destroying villages. While at least 70 bodies were recovered, the...
    (Bloomberg) – Applications for state unemployment benefits in the United States fell more than expected last week to their lowest since November, indicating that job cuts are beginning to decline as COVID-19 infections decrease and the vaccination process is accelerated. Initial jobless claims in regular state programs decreased by 111,000 to 730,000 in the week ending February 20, according to data from the Labor Department on Thursday. The previous week’s figures were revised down. On an unadjusted basis, applications fell from 131,734 to 710,313. Economists in a Bloomberg survey estimated 825,000 initial applications. Continuing requests decreased by 101,000 to 4.42 million in the week ending February 13. The numbers, while still higher than application data during the darkest days of the most recent recession, indicate that job cuts from the pandemic may be starting to slow. Employment is expected to improve significantly as more Americans receive the vaccine. “Continued progress...

    New Jersey residents and others gathered early Wednesday morning on rooftops, at nearby venues, and in garage parking lots to watch the end of the Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, marking the end of Donald Trump’s imprint on the city. According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, some even watched from One Atlantic, a wedding venue on top of a pier. With arguably the best view, the closed wedding venue offered its space and auctioned 10 VIP seats to watch the event with proceeds benefiting the Atlantic City Boys and Girls Club. The auction reportedly raised more than $17,000. When Mayor Marty Small announced the planned implosion in a state-of-the-city address, crowds cheered at the opportunity to see another Trump failure fall to the ground. Small called it “exciting” and “truly a great day in Atlantic City.” Jokes on a “push the button” auction erupted on social media with many vowing to bid...

    New York : The magnetic power it had Johnny depp at the box office it seems that, finally, it has disappeared. And it is that, the new film of the former revered actor, Minamata, had an extremely disastrous opening weekend in the United States, starting last Friday, February 5. According to figures from the New York Post and Box Office Mojo, Depp’s name seems no longer a reliable promise of profitability, as the film has so far raised less than 15 thousand dollars. While the coronavirus pandemic has had a negative impact on film revenue across the industry, Minamata is not even in the Top 20 of the last 12 months. Serbian historical drama Dara of Jasenovac, which premiered this weekend, beat Depp’s film, grossing $ 15,111; 13 weeks ago, for example, the horror comedy Freaky made $ 25,000 during its first three days of release. Minamata is based...

    I must start by making a clarification, when I say that Mars is closer than ever, I’m not talking about the distance between the earth and the red planet and that can be measured in kilometers, miles, light seconds, and so on. Yes, the one that is constantly changing (after all we are talking about two bodies orbiting in space), sometimes getting closer and sometimes moving away. No, I’m talking about how close or far we can, as humanity, feel from Mars. And this February it is undoubted that we will be closer than ever. The reason? In July of last year, there was a rapprochement between Earth and Mars, providing the most favorable circumstances for launches to be made to the red planet. And without a doubt the moment was well used, since there were no less than three missions: NASA’s Mars Perseverance, China’s Tianwen-1 and the United Arab...
    More than 700,000 Georgia residents who voted in the November election did not turn out for the Senate runoff election, according to an analysis from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The analysis revealed that the dropoff in turnout from the November 3 presidential election to the January 5 runoff election was highest in northwest Georgia and southern Georgia, both Republican-leaning regions of the state. Counties in northwest Georgia, including Walker, Whitfield, and Catoosa, voted 70–80 percent in favor of former President Donald Trump, for instance, but parts of that region saw a 19–24 percent decline in voters from the presidential election to the runoffs. The analysis also found that, of the 752,000 voters in total who stayed home for the runoffs, a majority were white. While this correlates to white voters comprising a majority of the electorate, the dropoff percentage was steepest in that demographic. Eleven percent fewer white voters did not...

    Students earning degrees at Pasadena City College participate in the graduation ceremony, June 14, 2019, in Pasadena, California.ROBYN BECK Millions of Americans got an early Christmas present this year – on Friday, the U.S. Department of Education extended the coronavirus pandemic-induced pause on student loan payments through January 2021. Accruing interest will also be on hold and the department will not resume collections on defaulted federal student loans until February. Monthly payments for most federal student loans have been on pause since March, when the Trump administration stopped them due to the coronavirus pandemic. Later, the CARES Act continued the same halt through September, and in August, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that pushed the deadline through December. The moratorium was set to lapse at the end of the year until the education department's recent action. The extension gives more than 42 million student loan borrowers, including more...

    (CNN) — If 95% of Americans wore masks in public, more than 100,000 lives could be saved from Covid-19 through February, a new modeling study suggests. The study — from the Covid-19 forecasting team at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation — notes that, in September, only about 49% of US residents reported that they “always” wear a mask in public. If mask-wearing is 49% through February and states continue with removing social distancing mandates, the Covid-19 death toll across the United States could reach about 1 million deaths by February 28, according to the study, published in the journal Nature Medicine on Friday. Yet under the assumption that states shut down when their daily death rate exceeds 8 deaths per 1 million people in the population but mask-wearing doesn’t change, the study’s model projections forecast the death toll could reach 511,373 deaths by February 28. The scenario that 95%...
    A new study published in Nature has claimed that wearing face masks could save more than 100,000 people from dying of the novel coronavirus by the end of February in the U.S. Around 223,000 people have already died from COVID-19 across the country, and cases are beginning to increase again as the nation begins to re-open once again. Though health experts had originally been wary of touting the use of face masks at the beginning of the pandemic — with even the CDC not recommending the use of facial coverings until April 3 — scientists have since amended their previous suggestions. In fact, the latest study has claimed that wearing facial coverings reduces infection by as much as 40 percent. As a result, researchers have dubbed the use of face masks a “considerable” health benefit. The researchers used models to predict how many lives could be saved if the population...

    BRUNO Fernandes might not be the only Manchester United star facing burnout after it emerged that Harry Maguire is the hardest working player in the Premier League. Old Trafford chiefs are reportedly worried about the demands put on Fernandes, 26, since he joined in January and the toll they have taken on his physical and mental wellbeing. He has already notched up 26 games, scored 14 goals and provided ten assists since his £55million move from Sporting Lisbon, and walked off with last season’s player of the year as a result. But he was taken off at half-time during Sunday’s 6-1 thrashing by Spurs in a clear sign that he needs a break.

Humana Inc., the Kentucky-based insurance giant, says it recently received word that the health systems starting next year intend to leave the company’s Medicare Advantage network. Networks are important in Medicare Advantage plans because patients typically pay more out of pocket if they want to visit an out-of-network doctor or hospital.” The AP reports: “The Legal Marijuana Now Party has nominated Paula Overby to run in Minnesota’s 2nd Congressional District after candidate Adam Weeks died last month, according to a court document filed Tuesday. Weeks’ Sept. 21 death triggered a Minnesota law that moved...

    The Democrat’s presumptive nominee Joe Biden named his former primary opponent Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as his running mate Tuesday, despite her notoriously poor performance in the 2020 primaries. The California Democrat launched her presidential campaign in January 2019 with great fanfare. But despite the fawning media coverage hailing her as the “frontrunner” and the “candidate to beat,” Harris’ campaign crashed and burned two months before a single vote was cast.

    Leaked hospital admission data suggested Iran’s coronavirus toll is much higher than is officially reported – AP Iran has dramatically underreported the extent of its coronavirus epidemic, according to leaked government figures showing nearly three times as many people may have died from Covid-19 than Tehran has officially acknowledged. The secret data suggests the government recorded 42,000 people dying with coronavirus-like symptoms up until July 20, whereas the health ministry reported 14,405 deaths in the same period.  That data also showed 451,024 cases of the virus, a figure nearly double the 278,827 officially reported in that time. The documents were obtained by BBC Persian and published on Monday as the health ministry reported that Iran faces a resurgence of the disease. Even by the government’s public figures, Iran is the worst affected country in the Middle East. Health ministry spokesperson Sima Sadat Lari rejected the report, claiming that foreign...
    When we last saw Stephen Piscotty — six feet away one March day in Mesa before baseball shut down — he lamented the “perpetual cycle of hurt” he couldn’t escape. With the shutdown providing time for recuperation and refocus, Piscotty emerged in spring training 2.0 as one of the most locked in hitters. “My season, from a personal perspective, was a bit of a disappointment last year,” Piscotty said in a call with reporters. “Now, I’m looking to bounce back.” Piscotty’s eternal struggle with injury began in June 2019 when he sprained his knee in a game against the Angels. His return was met with a sprained right ankle sustained in August that kept him off the Wild Card roster. He didn’t get a single spring training at bat in February and March due to an intercostal strain he sustained in the cages. Piscotty can’t fully appreciate...
    The coronavirus is demonstrating the wisdom of a key point of Donald Trump’s economic vision: the necessity of having a thriving manufacturing sector. Manufacturing added 356,000 workers in June and 250,000 in May. April was virtually unchanged. Two hundred and ninety thousand of the most recent gains were in durable goods manufacturing, largely reflecting the reopening of auto plants. Manufacturing jobs held up much better than the broader economy, suggesting that they are more reslient in the face of a public health care crisis. Compared with a year ago, manufacturing employment is down 5.8 percent. Total private sector employment is down 9.8 percent. Alan Tonelson points out that this same pattern holds up when measured against February, the last month before the pandemic hit the U.S. economy. Further, overall manufacturing’s record of pandemic-era resilience continued in June. Its monthly jobs growth was only 3.03 percent – slower than the rate...
    Blood samples taken from New Yorkers reveal some antibodies against the novel coronavirus much earlier than previously believed, a study suggests. Researchers found that residents of the Big Apple had been built up an immune response in late February. That's about one week before the first case was confirmed on February 29 and  announced on March 1 by Gov Andrew Cuomo. The team, from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, says the findings could mean the virus was circulating in New York in late January or early February.  Coronavirus antibodies were detected in about 2.3% of samples for the week ending on February 23, with 1.4% in one group (above) and 0.9% in another group This means the virus was likely circulating in New York as early as late January or early February. Pictured: A graph showing 0.9% of patients testing positive for coronavirus antibodies for...

    The U.S. economy entered a recession in February, a group of economists declared Monday, ending the longest expansion on record just as the novel coronavirus began swiftly spreading across the country. The economists said employment peaked in February and fell sharply afterward, marking the beginning of the downturn as cases of COVID-19 metastasized throughout the U.S., soon killing thousands, shutting down millions of businesses and sparking stay-at-home orders for much of the nation's population by mid-March.  What a difference a pandemic can make: Just weeks earlier in February, the jobless rate stood at 3.5%, the lowest rate in 50 years, and employers in February had added 273,000 workers. The subsequent job losses — tens of millions of newly unemployed Americans from March to May — were the steepest ever seen in the U.S.  Coronavirus: The Race To Respond It's official: U.S. recession began in February Watch live: Cuomo gives update on pandemic and...
