    The White House COVID-19 response team said Friday that all coronavirus vaccines currently available were safe and effective and urged Americans to take whichever one they had access to, after the mayor of Detroit reportedly declined an allocation of the Johnson & Johnson drug. At a news briefing Thursday, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said he was declining a shipment of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, adding that while it was a very good vaccine, he felt the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines were better and he wanted to get the people of Detroit “the best.” At a virtual news briefing Friday, coronavirus special adviser Andy Slavitt said that the White House reached out to the mayor and that there had been a misunderstanding. It was not Duggan’s intent to refuse the vaccine, said Slavitt, adding, "In fact, he is very eager for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.” National Institutes of Health...

    Insect-like drones have taken one large step closer to becoming a practical reality. Researchers at Harvard, MIT and the City University of Hong Kong have developed tiny insect-inspired drones that can not only maneuver in extremely tight spaces, but withstand bumps if things go wrong. The key is a switch to an actuation system that can flap the drones’ wings while surviving its share of abuse. To date, drone makers wanting to go this small have had to ditch motors (which lose effectiveness at small sizes) in favor of piezoelectric ceramic-based rigid actuators. The new drones rely on soft actuators made from rubber cylinders coated with carbon nanotubes. When you subject those nanotubes to voltage, they squeeze and stretch the rubber to beat the drones’ wings nearly 500 times per second. As you might guess, the combination is quite effective. While the drones are “centimeter-scale,” they can...

    A lot can be learned from looking back at recent sports odds history, and novice hockey bettors looking for an edge would be wise to note how recent matchups have been priced by the betting market. It’s a rather rudimentary approach to sports betting, but it’s simple and logical. Prices are shaped by sharp bettors and shouldn’t really change much on a game-to-game basis. For example, when the St. Louis Blues hosted the San Jose Sharks on Jan. 18, the Sharks were listed as +165 (37 percent chance) underdogs. Meanwhile, the Blues carried a price tag of -185 (63 percent chance) into the game. The Blues defeated the Sharks, 5-4. The two teams met again on Jan. 20, and just like the first matchup, the closing odds suggested the Sharks had a 37 percent chance of winning. This time the Sharks did win, 2-1. Note that injuries were not...

    “President Trump offered Kim a return flight on Air Force One,” Matthew Pottinger, Asia’s adviser to the former Republican president, told the BBC, which reported the information over the weekend. “The president knew Kim had arrived in Hanoi after a multi-day train journey through China and the president said, ‘I can get you home in two hours if you want.’ Kim declined. “ If the North Korean leader had accepted the offer, his presence – and probably that of part of his entourage – on board the official plane of the American presidency in the airspace of North Korea would have raised many questions. security concerns.

    Losing weight, losing fat, toning, gaining muscle or simply putting a sedentary life aside and starting to take care of yourself are some of the motivations that lead many people to include sport in their lifestyle.

    The New York Police Department deployed an additional 644 transit officers to the city’s subway stations in the wake of last weekend's fatal stabbings of two passengers and the wounding of two others, though the move is being slammed as inadequate. The chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, which runs the subways, said that the additional deployment is well short of the 1,500 cops necessary to make riders feel secure enough to return to the subway en masse. The NYPD this week said it would send 331 cops from the Transit Bureau as well as 313 patrol officers into 68 subway stations throughout the city. The department as a whole has more than 36,000 officers. ‘We are able to achieve this through overtime, deployment of officers normally assigned to administrative duties and re-assignment of other non-transit officers,’ NYPD Transit Chief Kathleen O’Reilly told the New York Post.

    New York Giants: Can Daniel Jones take a Josh Allen-like jump in 2021? By: Alexander Wilson February 17, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants are in a state of limbo as long as Daniel Jones is not considered a franchise quarterback. Without confidence that Jones can be their long-term solution at the most important position on any given football team, the Giants will be in a state of rebuild. While Jones’ statistics might indicate regression in 2020, he actually became a more aware quarterback in the pocket and began to take developmental steps forward in his maturity. After recording 24 total touchdowns in 2019, that number dropped to 11, indicating a massive drop-off that will likely scare some people away. However, he threw two fewer interceptions and fumbled seven fewer times. His turnover problems are still present, but they are nowhere near as impactful...
    The usual response, when Iran’s well-practiced chant leaders bark rhythmic recitations of “Death to America!” and “Death to Israel!” is for the crowd to noisily repeat the chant. But politics in Iran are poisonously divisive, especially now, just four months before a crucial presidential vote and amid the frisson of a new U.S. president aiming to return America to a nuclear deal his predecessor discarded. At stake in Iran is which political faction will be able to take credit for any deal that lifts sanctions and delivers a thriving economy, without suffering the humiliations of outgoing President Hassan Rouhani, who has been pilloried for trusting the United States. Mr. Rouhani had once raised Iranian hopes of openness and prosperity, banking on the 2015 nuclear deal and engagement with the West, only to watch those dissolve into hopelessness as more U.S. sanctions crippled the economy. So in Isfahan, in a parade...

    Eighty years after California created separate incarceration facilities to spare teenagers from being locked up alongside adults, the state has pledged to begin the shutdown of its long-troubled and frequently violent youth prisons. The planned dismantling of the Division of Juvenile Justice, or DJJ, comes after years of scandal and mistreatment of young offenders, which spurred multiple reform efforts and more than a decade of state court oversight that ended in 2016. The shutdown mirrors changes across the country — embracing rehabilitation over punishment and confinement close to home, rather than in isolated state facilities. Three remaining DJJ prisons will stop taking new prisoners in July, with rare exceptions. California plans to close the facilities — twin lockups in Stockton and another in Ventura — in July 2023, under a state law passed last year and a budget directive issued in January by Gov. Gavin Newsom. Longtime critics of the...

This goes double for women’s boots, which are (or should be) as much of a fashion statement as they are an everyday staple — but in my opinion, few options actually deliver. The Merrell Shiloh II boot, however, has not seen the inside of my closet once. That’s because, ever since I got them this past fall, I’ve been wearing them constantly. Merrell Shiloh IIBuy at Zappos$104So what’s so special about these shoes? For one, they’re extremely versatile: I wore them when I went pumpkin-picking with my cousin. I wore them when my snow-blower crapped out during an unexpected blizzard and I had to shovel the driveway...
    After winning a grueling five-set second-round match, Taylor Fritz faces the toughest challenge in the third round of the 2021 Australian Open. The American will lock horns with the most successful player on the Australian Open soil, the defending champion, Novak Djokovic.

And it’s Novak here at the Australian Open,” said Fritz, aiming to reach the fourth round at a Grand Slam for the...
    UFC lightweight Bobby Green spoke to the media ahead of UFC 258 that takes place at the Apex Facility. ‘King’ Green takes on lightweight stalwart Jim Miller on the main card in what promises to be an exciting affair. Bobby Green takes no prisoners in the cage and certainly keeps the same energy when talking to the media. Green had a tremendously successful 2020 where he managed to go 3-1 and unfortunately broke his streak in October. Prior to the loss to Thiago Moises, ‘King’ had scalped three unanimous decision victories that were exceedingly exciting. His chaotic style that relies on blitzing his opponent rarely fails him, and he’s looking to carry the same momentum into the new year. LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – OCTOBER 31: (L-R) Thiago Moises of Brazil punches Bobby Green in a lightweight bout during the UFC Fight Night event at UFC APEX on October 31, 2020...
    A lifetime subscription to CBS All-Access and limited-edition “Star Trek” collectibles are up for grabs. All players have to do is face a seemingly impossible task — overcome the famed Kobayashi Maru test. In the “Star Trek” universe, the exam puts Starfleet Academy cadets in a desperate situation. It’s meant to measure character and resolve through thousands of no-win scenarios. It’s been mentioned a few times in the series and was beaten by James T. Kirk, who famously hacked it in order to win. Now, Scopely, the developer behind “Star Trek Fleet Command,” recreated the test and is letting public take it. It’s a simple web-based decision game. Players take on the role of a cadet and make several decisions in the test. It takes players through the Gamma Hydra section and eventually players reach the neutral zone, where they meet the vessel for which the test is named. Players...

    London (CNN Business)Airlines are poised to reduce their emissions and reap huge fuel savings on transatlantic flights in the coming weeks as air traffic controllers experiment with giving pilots free rein to chart their own paths across skies that have been cleared out by the pandemic.For decades, planes going between Europe and North America — one of the busiest routes globally before the pandemic with around 1,700 flights a day — have followed a handful of designated paths, forming what is essentially an invisible high altitude road network.But reduced traffic is allowing air traffic controllers to throw out the old rules. NATS and NAV Canada, which are responsible for UK and Canadian airspace, say they won't designate specific routes on days when traffic allows, letting airlines select paths "based entirely on optimum route, speed and trajectory."

Perhaps during a regular year, you and your dearest might have gone out for a romantic dinner, or somewhere special like the theater, a concert, a horse-drawn carriage ride.

    By MARILYNN MARCHIONE, AP Chief Medical Writer Can I take painkillers before or after a COVID-19 vaccine? It's best to avoid them, unless you routinely take them for a medical condition. Although the evidence is limited, some painkillers might interfere with the very thing the vaccine is trying to do: generate a strong immune system response. Vaccines work by tricking the body into thinking it has a virus and mounting a defense against it. That may cause arm soreness, fever, headache, muscle aches or other temporary symptoms of inflammation that can be part of that reaction. “These symptoms mean your immune system is revving up and the vaccine is working,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in a recent news briefing. Certain painkillers that target inflammation, including ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin and other brands) might curb the immune response. A study on mice...

    Madison Summers February 1, 2021 0 Comments Michigan is reopening indoor dining with limits and curfews, and Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) says it is “because of the strong position that we’re in.” Starting on Monday, restaurants in the state will be allowed to have 25% indoor capacity and will have a 10 p.m. curfew. Appearing on CNN’s “New Day” Monday, Whitmer said, “This virus poses a unique threat to places that are indoors where you mix households and people take off their masks. It’s not the restaurant industry’s fault that they are the place where this virus can spread fast.” “But that is in fact the case,” she added. “And that’s why we’ve been trying to get Congress to give us more support so we can help these struggling businesses.” Whitmer pointed to the state’s “strategic, targeted and temporary pause” in November, adding that it helped Michigan’s...

    Just months into his presidency, I argued President Trump should keep the United States in the Paris Climate Accord under new conditions. As an elected official from an energy-producing state, I believed then – as I do now – the United States has a leadership role to play on the world stage. If we recuse ourselves, we diminish our opportunities to advance America’s interests and play into the hands of competitors like China whose influence will grow as we merely shout from the sidelines. Lest we forget, China emits more than the United States and the European Union combined, and they are not expected to reach peak emissions for another 10 years. How will we ever hold them accountable if we do not assert ourselves? Part of President Biden’s energy platform focuses on nuclear energy and carbon capture technology, areas in the energy industry with bipartisan support at home and...

    Getty Wayne Gallman (L) & Saquon Barkley (R). Ottis Anderson knows a thing or two about toting the rock. The former 15-year pro amassed over 10,000 rushing yards during his NFL career. A perceived home-run threat early on with the St. Louis Cardinals, Anderson evolved into an efficient bruiser as father time began to creep up on him. The former No. 8 overall pick in the 1978 draft, Anderson’s willingness to alter his game kept him effective well into his mid-30s, even taking home a Super Bowl MVP in the New York Giants‘ Super Bowl XXV victory along the way. Anderson sees a bit of both of these play styles occupying the Giants’ current backfield. On Wednesday, Anderson joined the Valentine’s Views podcast where he told Big Blue View’s Ed Valentine what the home-run hitting Saquon Barkley can learn from his running-mate, Wayne Gallman.

    The resulting “sPot” features both WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, allowing it to connect to both wireless speakers and headphones, in addition to a color display and 1,000mAh battery. If you’re an audio purist, you’ll hate this next part: the headphone jack at the top of the device is for show and doesn’t work. At the heart of the device is the $10 Raspberry Pi Zero W. There’s also a motor that creates haptic feedback when using the click wheel. For charging the device, there’s a Micro-USB port. While we would have preferred a USB-C connection, Micro-USB is definitely an improvement over Apple’s 30-pin connector (remember those?).   All told, all the components set him less than $100. Coming in at $40, the most expensive part was the color screen Dupont used to replace the iPod’s original display (the 4th-generation model was the last one to ship with a monochromatic screen).

    THE INTERNAL Revenue Service (IRS) could take money from Americans’ second stimulus checks if they owe taxed - despite the agency’s pledge it would not.  The IRS promised it would not snatch the $600 direct payments to offset any taxes owes to the government. 3The IRS can offset any taxes owes to the government by drawing from the stimulus paymentsCredit: Getty Images - Getty However, the direct payments are technically an advance tax credit, called the Recovery Rebate Credit, on 2020 tax returns, according to Fox Business. The tax credits are approved to be distributed filers in two advance payments, one in 2020 and another at the start of 2021.  That means the IRS will factor in filers’ overall tax return including liabilities, when they claim the credit on their 2020 return during the tax season starting Feb. 12.

    The answer to “What team should try to trade for Deshaun Watson?” is pretty much every team that doesn’t already have one of the NFL’s few elite quarterbacks. File the 49ers near the top of the list. Even though Jimmy Garoppolo has been highly effective when healthy the past three sesons, there’s a good chance San Francisco is seeking an upgrade to get to the next level of Kyle Shanahan’s dynamic offense. Watson, still only 25, would offer just that — and it would be hard for Watson to find a team with a better offensive system that also isn’t too far away from winning the Super Bowl. The 49ers are positioned to get out of Garoppolo’s contract before paying him again in 2021, especially coming off a season derailed by a high ankle sprain. Whether he’s released or traded after the new league year starts in March, the 49ers...
    Can the New York Rangers take advantage of a depleted Penguins defense? By: Jim Bay January 22, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditWhen the New York Rangers face the Pittsburgh Penguins Friday night, the one thing that they know is that they will have to deal with Penguin superstars Sydney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. Crosby, in typical Crosby fashion, swept in a rebound 1:11 into overtime Tuesday for his third point to help the Penguins overcome a pair of two-goal deficits to defeat the Washington Capitals 5-4. However, Pittsburgh played the third period of that game with only four defensemen. Marcus Pettersson left late in the second after taking a blindside hit from Washington’s T.J. Oshie at center ice. Juuso Riikola‘s injury status was uncertain as he did not return to the bench for the third period. The Penguins already had Mike Matheson (undisclosed) and Zach Trotman...
    Want to keep your job in 2021? That may depend on whether you’re willing to be vaccinated against COVID-19. Employment attorneys Peter Brown and Alex Volberding of the Los Angeles-based law firm Liebert Cassidy Whitmore say an employer can legally mandate the vaccine under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. But there are exceptions. “Employees with disabilities who can demonstrate that they cannot take the vaccine and employees with sincerely held religious beliefs that prevent them from being vaccinated can lawfully refuse it,” said Brown, a partner in the firm. “At that point, the employer would be obligated to go through the process to see if they could accommodate them.” ‘Undue hardship’ and workplace safety Accommodations for those who cannot be vaccinated could range from situating the worker in an area away from other employees to having them work from home....

Believing that the millionaire had incited his supporters to revolt, they filed an indictment against him this Monday to launch a second indictment. The vote in the House of Representatives will take place this Wednesday, where the debate began in broad daylight. Even among Republicans, if voices are in favor of the head of state being prosecuted for Capitol’s events, others believe this choice is not very fair.

    New York (CNN Business)Pandemic travel restrictions and shelter-in-place orders have made it difficult to access cultural experiences. But a virtual tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City could help ease some of those stuck-at-home blues. Verizon (VZ) and The Met are launching a platform that lets viewers visit the museum and see many of its famous works of art from home, an experience that can be enhanced through 5G and augmented reality technology. Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg announced the partnership during a keynote address at the Consumer Electronics Show on Monday. The tool, called "The Met Unframed," is one way for Verizon to show off some of the uses for 5G — which boasts higher bandwidth, faster speeds and lower lag time than 4G LTE networks.
