    (CNN)Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg wants the United States to lead the world on high-speed rail, a goal that's easier said than done.American transportation investments been car-dominated since hundreds of billions were spent to build the Interstate Highway System in the 20th century. But Buttigieg, echoing his boss, President Joe Biden (who is sometimes called "Amtrak Joe," thanks to his habit of riding the train between his home state of Delaware and Washington) has spoken recently of upgrading American rail. "We gotta take things to the next level," Buttigieg said on MSNBC last week. "I think we have a real opportunity to do that especially with the bipartisan appetite for real investments that we have before us this year." Buttigieg has a history of thinking differently on transportation. As mayor of South Bend, Indiana, he led an effort to re-orient its downtown around pedestrians and cyclists, rather than motorists.

    Operation Warp Speed Director Dr. Moncef Slaoui on Wednesday said he submitted his resignation at the request of President-elect Joe Biden. Operation Warp Speed, first announced in May, is the Trump administration's plan to coordinate with federal and private entities to quickly develop and distribute safe COVID-19 vaccines to all Americans.  "As you know, I'm very supportive of this upcoming administration and, really, of course, the operation and its mission," Slaoui told CNBC on Tuesday.

    President Trump's greatest contribution to the success of Operation Warp Speed in developing a coronavirus vaccine was getting "out of the way," House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., told "Your World" Monday.  "I give the scientists a lot of credit for that," Clyburn told host Neil Cavuto. "And I'm glad he [Trump] got out of the way and stopped talking and he stopped having those press conferences every evening ... the scientists were free to use their creativity." Clyburn, 80, added that he had received the vaccine "yesterday or day before, and I did because I believe in the scientists. I didn't put ... detergent in my veins [like] he advocated. You remember that. You remember him saying ... it would magically disappear. Why don't you talk about that?" The Democrat was referring to comments from earlier this year in which the president mentioned "disinfectants" and "light" as potential remedies for the virus. VideoClyburn added that...
    Dr Anthony Fauci insisted again on Tuesday that the COVID-19 vaccine was safe and told skeptics who say it can't be full-proof because it was developed so quickly that the fast timeline was down to 'extraordinary' science and investment, not cutting corners.  Speaking on Good Morning America on Monday, Fauci said he would recommend to President-elect Joe Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence that they should all get the vaccine.  He says he plans to get it himself and may even do so on television to  prove that it is safe.  On Monday, the first people in the US received the vaccine after months of waiting.  But some - including healthcare workers - are dubious of the research behind it. The Pfizer vaccine was developed in less than a year - which is considerably less time than most other vaccines. Its safety was...
    The chief scientist for Operation Warp Speed appeared Tuesday on Good Morning America morning and said that he doesn’t know what President Donald Trump’s vaccine executive order, which was put in place to ensure that all Americans have access to a vaccine before the United States begins aiding foreign countries, actually does. Host George Stephanopoulos began by asking about reports that the Trump administration had passed on an offer from Pfizer last summer to provide more doses of its vaccine. Operation Warp Speed chief scientist Dr. Moncef Slaoui said that their strategy was to build a “portfolio” of six different vaccines because at that time it was unclear which vaccines would work and which ones wouldn’t. “Now, in the summer, if somebody came to us and said, let’s buy more of this vaccine or that vaccine, no one reasonably would buy more from any one of those vaccines because we...
    The Chief Science Adviser for Operation Warp Speed admitted to George Stephanopoulos that he did not understand President Donald Trump’s planned Executive Order for prioritizing Covid-19 vaccines for American citizens planned for a Tuesday signing event. Dr. Moncef Slaoui appeared on Good Morning America Tuesday morning and discussed the current progress being made by the vaccine, in light of a recent New York Times report that suggested the Trump administration passed on purchasing vaccines from Pfizer last summer, which will make millions of doses available first for other countries that did. Stephanopolous opened the interview asking, “Let’s talk about this issue with passing on the vaccines from Pfizer last summer. What Happened?” Slaoui first reminded viewers about Operation Warp Speed’s initial strategy of building a portfolio of six different vaccines to “manage the risk that some may work and some may not work, but also ensure that as more than...
    Danny Garcia and Errol Spence Jr. Photo by Ryan Hafey/Premier Boxing Champions Errol Spence Jr. just wrote boxing's comeback tale of 2020. The American boxer was ejected through the windshield of his $300,000 Ferrari in October, last year, before the vehicle flipped multiple times in shocking scenes caught on CCTV. Spence was taken to hospital but escaped without any broken bones — just broken teeth, a twisted ankle, and a messed-up face. Dallas police slapped him with a DWI [driving while intoxicated]. Considering the wreckage and potential for mental trauma, there were questions as to whether Spence would be the same boxer he was before. But on Saturday, December 5, in front of 16,102 fans at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, he answered those questions in style with a comfortable decision win over Danny Garcia. "He's back," the former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis said on the Fox Sports...
    DOVER, Del. (CBS) — Gov. John Carney hinted Tuesday he could be taking more action against COVID-19 in Delaware.

We heard another update from Operation Warp Speed,” Carney said. “We heard another update from Operation Warp Speed on the progress of the vaccine is making for COVID-19.

    The 2007 season was a treat to watch for the Formula 1 fans, with both Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton being placed in the same team. The two lined up alongside each other in the McLaren. Consequently, it turned out to be one of the most intense rivalries F1 had ever faced; both stood equally on points by the end of that season. Hence, it is not a particularly easy task to figure who the better driver is of the two. However, McLaren’s principal car performance engineer, Mark Temple, felt that Lewis is better than Alonso in one aspect.

    A Utah man was busted for allegedly leading cops on a high-speed chase while drunk and high on drugs, claiming he was en route to kill former Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, police said. George William Stahl, 36, was busted early Wednesday morning in Summit County, where a Utah Highway Patrol trooper clocked him doing 115 mph on I-80, according to the Deseret News. When the trooper attempted to pull Stahl over, the driver booked it, going at least 130 mph as light snow fell, a police affidavit said. The chase came to a halt when another trooper used tire spikes to stop Stahl. The affidavit noted that Stahl, of Cottonwood Heights, was “belligerent and appeared heavily intoxicated” and reeked of alcohol. “There was an empty 12 pack of Budweiser beer in his vehicle as well as a partially consumed other 12 pack. Stahl stated that he was on Adderall and...
    Alex Azar, the secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, said Wednesday that he did not learn about Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine until the company announced the results of its clinical trials on Monday morning, a day after President-elect Joe Biden says that his advisers learned the same information. “I as secretary of health and human services learned about this from media reports on Monday morning,” Azar said in an interview on WMAL, a radio station in Washington, D.C. “That’s not a good sign,” said WMAL host Vince Coglianese. “If the Biden campaign found out Sunday night but you…didn’t find out until Monday, that sounds like there’s a problem there,” Coglianese continued. “There certainly was a gap in communication, let’s say,” Azar replied. Pfizer announced on Monday that its vaccine was effective in more than 90% of patients who took part in its clinical trials. The announcement was...

    The chief of the Trump administration's Operation Warp Speed says he believes the coronavirus pandemic could be under control in the US by next flu season. Dr Moncef Slaoui leads the government's plan to fast-track the production of 300 million vaccine doses in America by 2021. In an appearance on The Dr Oz Show on Thursday, Slaoui said he expects that, when a COVID-19 jab is eventually available, it will be between 80 percent and 90 percent effective. This can lead to herd immunity, in which enough people are vaccinated so that a disease is unable to spread, especially among high-risk groups. He also added that the US has plenty of experiencing distributing hundreds of millions of flu shots doses every year and, therefore, can easily dispense coronavirus vaccines across the country.

    Republican Sen. Steve Daines of Montana, who faces a tough re-election fight this year, received thousands of dollars from pharmaceutical companies while pushing Congress to fund a fast-tracked coronavirus treatment and vaccine development program that eventually awarded contracts to those companies, Federal Election Commission records show. The $10 billion program, dubbed Operation Warp Speed, was Daines’ marquee contribution to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), which President Trump signed into law on March 27. In the days and weeks that Daines worked on the bill, PACs affiliated with the pharmaceutical corporations Pfizer and Sanofi gave his campaign $2,500 and $2,000, respectively.
