    BOSTON (CBS) — At Douzo Modern Japanese restaurant in Boston, it’s far from business as usual, but CEO Jack Huang has been staying positive throughout the pandemic. “End of the tunnel there’s a light for us so we will hang in there until that comes up,” he said. Some of the coronavirus restrictions that were put into place back in November are being lifted on Monday, meaning restaurants like Douzo no longer have to close at 9:30 p.m. “It’s giving people something to look forward to. In the past, they say, ‘I need to home by 9:30,’ now it’s a little different, now it’s ‘I can go in at 9 o’clock or 8:30,’” Huang said. For a while, the latest reservations at Douzo were at 7 p.m. Huang has been in business in the Back Bay for 15 years. This is no doubt the most challenging time of his career....

    She may be 51, but with her smooth skin, wrinkle-free forehead and impressively unlined eyes, Jennifer Lopez doesn’t look a day over 40. In fact, she looks no different than she did a decade ago. Yet when one fan recently took to social media to claim that her youthful glow must be the result of wrinkle-zapping Botox injections, the singer was quick to shoot them down. ‘For the 500 millionth time . . . I have never done Botox or any injectable or surgery!!’ she wrote in reply. ‘Just sayin’.’ Miss Lopez is not the only celebrity whose face seems to be frozen in time. Here, ALISON BOSHOFF looks at the stars who still look the same as they did a decade ago — leaving us all wondering how do they do it?

    WINSTON SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Dana Evans hit a driving shot for the go-ahead three-point play with 8.0 seconds left to help top-ranked Louisville barely avoid a huge upset by holding off Wake Forest 65-63 on Sunday. Evans’ driving shot against Gina Conti and free throw finally gave the Cardinals their winning margin. But Louisville had to survive a final shot from the Demon Deacons, with Ivana Raca missing a 3-pointer from the right at the horn that would’ve given Wake Forest its first-ever win against a No. 1-ranked opponent. Instead, the Cardinals survived to remain unbeaten less than a week after ascending to the top spot in the AP Top 25 poll for the first time. Evans scored 25 points for Louisville (14-0, 7-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), who trailed by nine midway through the fourth quarter before going on a 14-2 run to push back in front and set...
    Drew Angerer/Getty Images In the past year of the Trump administration, there were plenty of calls for Dr. Anthony Fauci to resign, given how President Donald Trump and people around him were saying things very different than he was. In a new interview with the New York Times, Fauci says he “never” did. “When people just see you standing up there, they sometimes think you’re being complicit in the distortions emanating from the stage. But I felt that if I stepped down, that would leave a void. Someone’s got to not be afraid to speak out the truth,” he said. Fauci argued that by staying there, he was “the skunk at the picnic” pushing back against overly optimistic talk from others. “Even if I wasn’t very effective in changing everybody’s minds, the idea that they knew that nonsense could not be spouted without my pushing back on it, I felt...

The biggest personalities from Hollywood, MMA, and even wrestling have chimed in with their picks. One such personality was fellow Irishman and WWE Superstar Becky Lynch. Becky Lynch sends a message to Conor McGregor ahead of his UFC 257 fight WWE Superstar Becky Lynch took to Instagram earlier today to send a message to ‘The Notorious’ Conor McGregor ahead of his fight against Dustin Poirier.

    PARIS (AP) — Jonathan David’s early goal was enough to help second-place Lille secure a 1-0 win at Rennes on Sunday and stay level on points with league leader Paris Saint-Germain. The Canada forward pounced in the 15th minute after goalkeeper Romain Salin failed to properly clear a corner, and the ball fell to him to sweep into the left side of the net. After a slow start to his Lille career, the 21-year-old David has four league goals. David made a sharp run behind the Rennes defense midway through the first half and was awarded a penalty after being knocked over by defender Nayef Aguerd. But referee Eric Wattellier reversed the decision after a video replay showed that David was fractionally offside when making his move, and rescinded the yellow card shown to Aguerd. The home side threatened little after the break and it was a comfortable win for...
    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The Bay Area has experienced the largest ICU capacity swing in several weeks — jumping to 23.4% availability from just 6.5%. So when will the restrictive COVID-19 surge stay-at-home order be lifted? “I really want to stress this, that I firmly believe this is our last surge and this is the last time that those restrictive lockdowns will occur, because of the availability of the vaccine,” said UCSF Infectious Disease Expert Dr. Monica Gandhi. “Because of the new administration and the federal government pushing it out, signing the National Defense Act.” Gandhi is encouraged by the region’s ICU availability. She is seeing hospitalizations drop first-hand at Zuckerberg San Francisco General, where she also works. “We did not see the surge that was predicted. We did from Thanksgiving, and then it was not as bad at Christmas and New Year’s at all that was predicted,” she...
    By Laura Schweizer | KITV Maui, HI — Monday at about 7:45 a.m., a 73-year-old man was bitten by a shark while snorkeling at Ka’anapali Beach on Maui.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — As the coronavirus pandemic rages on, so does the battle over returning to in-person learning at Chicago Public Schools. Kindergarten through eighth-grade teachers are scheduled to return to classrooms this Monday, Jan. 25. Students in kindergarten through eighth grade are set to return a week later, on Monday, Feb. 1. As CBS 2’s Jeremy Ross reported, some parents are urging educators to stick to that timeline. But the Chicago Teachers Union is holding a vote that could change everything. It has been about 10 months since some students have seen the inside of a classroom. Those 10 months have been long for 6-year-old Constantino Torres and his 6-year-old sister, Olivia. Both are relying on e-learning, and both have special needs. “My daughter she has issues with speech and a learning disability, so I’m not a speech therapist; I’m not a special education teacher, and besides not being...

    The negotiations were simple: I begged. “No,” they said. I pleaded. “Nope,” they replied. I bargained: Let me stay up until 9 o’clock, and I’ll go to bed a half-hour earlier tomorrow. Swear to God! “A half-hour tonight in exchange for a half-hour tomorrow. You’ll shake on it?” my father asked, overruling the far more draconian leanings of my mother — to whom an 8:30 bedtime for a generally hyper 7-year-old boy seemed perfectly reasonable. I extended my hand. My father shook it. So it was that on the evening of April 8, 1974, inside the modest house at 669 Thrush Avenue, West Hempstead, a deal was struck: I would be allowed to stay up past my bedtime to watch two Hank Aaron at-bats on a night when a Braves-Dodgers baseball game would be televised on Channel 4. I was too young to know just how much leverage I really...
    Q: Self-driving cars will bring new business for psychiatrists! John Dannenberg Like Mr. Roadshow’s Facebook page for more questions and answers about Bay Area roads, freeways and commuting. A: Why is that? Q: Your column is replete with narcissistic complainers who retch about road boulders, speeders, lane-changers, dive-bombers, and tailgaters. But these denizens of the vanishing manual control era will be cast into a deep depression when their new autopilot vehicle obeys speed laws, maintains safe separation, won’t weave in and out of traffic, run red lights, or cut others off. Predictably, as the limited road real estate fills to capacity with ever-longer trucks and SUVs, autopilots will announce the sad news as to when your vehicle will be permitted to enter traffic. But hark, relief is on the horizon! You will be able to outbid those less fortunate for favored routing privileges. Aggressive driving will be replaced by...

    In what has been described as “emotionally manipulative propaganda”, the British government has released a high-production lockdown ad campaign, attempt to guilt the public into obeying the country’s lockdown restrictions. On Saturday, the official Number 10 Downing Street account for the office of Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Twitter published a dramatic video of sickly coronavirus patients and National Health Service (NHS) workers, demanding that Britons “Stay home. Protect the NHS. Save Lives”. As ominous Hollywood-esque piano plays in the background, the video pans in close to the eyes of coronavirus patients, and the narrator says: “Look them in the eyes and tell them you’re doing all you can to stop the spread of COVID-19.” The shock ad was accompanied by the message: “COVID-19 hospital admissions are higher than ever. It’s likely someone near you has it. So only go out if it’s essential. Sticking to the rules stops the...

But the question of which ones are has become one of the thorniest issues for courts to decide, more than two weeks after a pro-Donald Trump mob attacked the US Capitol.Four times so far, judges across the country have disagreed with the Justice Department's attempt to keep locked up alleged rioters who breached the Capitol on January 6. The latest ruling came Friday night in Tennessee, where a judge decided to release a man who's become known for the zip-tie-like restraints he carried and the black helmet and body armor he wore into the Senate chamber that day.At least three other alleged rioters whom judges said should be released still remain in custody, and will be brought to Washington, DC, according to court records.

    Five California businesses are suing Gov. Gavin Newsom, Attorney General Xavier Becerra and public health officer Dr. Erica Pan over the state's coronavirus stay-at-home orders.  Lawyers representing Pineapple Hill Saloon & Grill, Luxury Nail Lounge, Pomp Salon, Bella & Harmony and Coachella Valley Hospitality Unites argue that the restrictions violate the merchants' constitutional rights.

But with the state starting to emerge from its worst surge, his administration won’t disclose key information that will help determine when his latest stay-at-home order is lifted.

Dr. Lee Riley, chairman of the University of California, Berkeley School of Public Health infectious disease division, disagreed. “There is more uncertainty created by NOT releasing the data that only the state has access to,” he said in an email. Its release would allow outside experts to assess its value for projecting trends and the resulting decisions on lifting restrictions, he wrote. Newsom, a Democrat, imposed the...

Education Minister Niki Kerameus on Friday said high schools would follow the reopening of primary schools on Jan. 11 and a limited opening of retail stores a week later.

    (CNN)Construction on an enormous trench across Libya, dug by Russian-backed mercenaries Wagner, is raising fears that foreign fighters will not withdraw from the country by Saturday, as a UN-brokered peace deal insists.US officials are also concerned over the long-term goals of the Kremlin ally in the war-torn state. One intelligence official notes that the trench is a sign that Wagner, which, the official said, has its largest global presence in Libya, is "settling in for the long haul."The trench, which extends dozens of kilometers south from the populated coastal areas around Sirte towards the Wagner-controlled stronghold of al-Jufra, can be seen on satellite imagery and is bolstered by a series of elaborate fortifications. CNN has contacted the Russian government for comment and received no response.

    The city’s largest charter school operator has thrown in the towel on classroom learning for the remainder of the academic year due to the coronavirus, officials announced Thursday. Success Academy — which enrolls roughly 20,000 city kids — will also end the year early in order to move up the resumption of classes next summer. “Like everyone else, we desperately want to be back on campus, but we are prioritizing a consistent, productive learning experience by staying remote now,” said founder and CEO Eva Moskowitz. “By opening early, we can take full advantage of the safer summer months to make up for what we believe will be some degree of learning loss, while also giving teachers and families a break.” The vast majority of Success Academy schools are co-located with traditional public schools and are thus tethered to Department of Education’s dictation on building availability.

    Reuters January 21, 2021 0 Comments Facebook Inc said on Thursday it was referring its decision to indefinitely suspend the accounts of former U.S. President Donald Trump to its independent content oversight board. Trump will remain suspended while the board, a recently created body that can overrule the company’s decisions on content, reviews the decision. The social media company blocked Trump’s access to his Facebook and Instagram accounts following the storming of the U.S. Capitol by the former president’s supporters earlier this month. It said at the time the suspension would last at least until the end of Trump’s presidential term and perhaps indefinitely. Trump’s term expired on Wednesday when Joe Biden was sworn in as president. Twitter Inc has suspended Trump permanently. “We believe our decision was necessary and right. Given its significance, we think it is important for the board to review it and reach an independent...
    A ruffled Boris Johnson squirmed when asked about whether Joe Biden is 'woke' and insisted there is 'nothing wrong' with being right-on as he prepares to speak to the new US President on Zoom as early as today. The Prime Minister was visibly uncomfortable and dodged the question about America's left-wing successor to Donald Trump hours after his inauguration in Washington yesterday.   Sky News reporter Sam Coates asked whether he considered Mr Biden to be 'woke' – a US term originally used to describe those concerned about social and racial injustice but now also increasingly aligned with political correctness. The flustered PM replied there was 'nothing wrong with being woke' – but said he would always stand up to those wanting to tear down statues of historical figures like Churchill. He said: 'What I know is that he's a firm believer in the transatlantic alliance and that's a great thing....

    GENEVA (AP) — The Biden administration has taken quick steps to keep the United States in the World Health Organization and reinforce financial and staffing support for it — part of his ambition to launch a full-throttle effort to fight the COVID-19 pandemic in partnership with the world.

    THE term "woke" has been thrown around as a way to describe someone as aware, but it is also sometimes used as an insult. But the term is not a new trend, and has been used for a number of years now. So what does woke mean? 5 Woke is often used to mean someone is aware of social injusticesCredit: Getty Images What does 'woke' mean? According to the Oxford English Dictionary "woke" is defined as: "Originally: well-informed, up-to-date. Now chiefly: alert to racial or social discrimination and injustice." "By the mid-20th century," says the OED, "woke had been extended figuratively to refer to being 'aware' or 'well informed' in a political or cultural sense." The Urban Dictionary adds: "Being woke means being aware… knowing what’s going on in the community (related to racism and social injustice)." To summarise: woke means a person is consciously awake.

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – It’s now been five days of armed troops on the streets of Sacramento with national guard soldiers guarding the capitol, state, and federal buildings. The armed forces showed a larger presence than protestors on Inauguration Day. “It’s an important lesson that you can never be too prepared,” said Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg. Necessary steps according to Steinberg to protect the capitol and those who live in its city from possible violence. “For these several days especially given what happened in Washington DC on the 6th of January, I do think it was appropriate and the precautions were appropriate,” explained Steinberg. Enhanced law enforcement only came against non-violent crowds Wednesday. “The juggling act is evaluating your intelligence, looking at how big of a response you want to have and then deciding, it wasn’t that really big of a response so we are going to start pairing this down...

    House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., declined Tuesday to take a stance on whether China is committing genocide against ethnic Uighur Muslims in the northwestern province of Xinjiang, telling "America Reports" that "I try to stay out of these foreign affairs matters." "I have not made that a particular endeavor of mine here in the Congress," Clyburn told co-host Sandra Smith. "I listen to these things and I usually reserve comment when they are bordering on international issues, and I will today as well." Earlier Tuesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that he had determined the Beijing government "has committed genocide against the predominantly Muslim Uighurs and other ethnic and religious minority groups in Xinjiang. "I believe this genocide is ongoing, and that we are witnessing the systematic attempt to destroy Uighurs by the Chinese [Communist] party-state," Pompeo said in a statement. "The governing authorities of the second most economically, militarily...

    National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases The new SARS-CoV-2 variant’s increased transmissibility is believed to come from a change in the spike protein, visible here in yellow under an electron microscope. A fast-spreading variant of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 has been found in at least 20 states, and people are wondering: How do I protect myself now? We saw what the new variant, known as B.1.1.7, can do as it spread quickly through southeastern England in December, causing case numbers to spike and triggering stricter lockdown measures. The new variant has been estimated to be 50% more easily transmitted than common variants, though it appears to affect people’s health in the same way. The increased transmissibility is believed to arise from a change in the virus’s spike protein that can allow the virus to more easily enter cells. These and other studies on the new...

    Some of the world's biggest tennis stars are finding ways to stay match fit ahead of the Australian Open - in spite of many of them being quarantined in their hotel rooms following a Covid outbreak ahead of the grand slam.

    Rhode Island, Duquesne meet in conference play Surprising facts about the Secret Service Home Improvement Stock Volatility: What Does It Mean? © Provided by Millionacres Home Improvement Stock Volatility: What Does It Mean? In the early days of COVID-19 lockdowns, many home improvement companies, from Pool Corporation (NASDAQ: POOL) to Home Depot (NYSE: HD), saw their stock climb. People were determined to make the most of the homes where they were confined, increasing their living space by making outdoor improvements. But the share prices for major outdoor living product companies, including Pool, Azek (NYSE: AZEK) and Trex (NYSE: TREX), have begun to fluctuate noticeably in recent months -- no longer riding the steady "stay-home stock" tailwind they were in during the first six months of the pandemic.What does this volatility indicate?Conceivably, the jagged rises and drops in stock prices could correlate with ever-changing, unpredictable changes in COVID-19 community rules...
    Nazifa Mahbobi worked for years Afghanistan's capital as a journalist with Radio Free Europe. She fled her country last month after repeated warnings from the national intelligence agency that insurgents were plotting to assassinate her.  She only made the difficult decision to leave after a would-be assassin, disguised as vaccination worker, made it into her home. "The angel of death made it to my apartment doorsteps," Mahbobi told CBS News. "I thought I was dying gradually from the inside when the threats turned out to be serious." Afghan officials have confirmed to CBS News that a terror cell was established jointly by the Taliban and the ISIS branch in the country and tasked with disguising themselves as social workers, including vaccine administrators, to assassinate journalists in Kabul. Family members and relatives take part in the funeral procession of Afghan journalist Rahmatullah Nekzad, in the Khoja Omari district of...
    ROME (AP) — Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte is facing a second round of voting Tuesday to determine if he can hold onto power after a junior coalition partner pulled his party’s ministers from the government to protest Conte’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Conte on Monday won what amounted to a confidence vote in the lower Chamber of Deputies, securing a 321-to-259 victory in favor of his government with 27 abstentions, including from the defecting Italia Viva (Italy Alive) party of ex-Premier Matteo Renzi. Conte went before the Senate on Tuesday to urge continued backing, but support in the upper chamber for his coalition government headed by the 5-Star Movement and Democratic Party is slimmer. Even if Conte survives the vote, his already fragile coalition will be weakened. The opposition center-right is demanding an early election, but that option is considered the least likely outcome of the political crisis,...
    VIDEO2:5702:57U.S.-China tech war has already been going on for years, says professorSquawk Box Asia SINGAPORE — China's investment deal with the European Union could pave the way for Beijing's "dual circulation" strategy of being self-reliant in technology while still remaining a part of the global supply chain, a professor told CNBC. Last year, the Chinese government came out with a batch of policy terms to bolster its economy, putting them under a vague umbrella term of "dual circulation." The phrase refers broadly to two circles of economic activity — internal and external — with greater emphasis than before on business at home. "Dual circulation is such an important point in the middle of this China-U.S. tech war," said Winston Ma, an adjunct professor of law at New York University. The two superpowers continue to fight for technological dominance and superiority. Reuters recently reported that in its final days, the Trump...
    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The likelihood of Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll staying in Buffalo for at least more season has increased after he was passed over in filling the Los Angeles Chargers coaching job, two people with direct knowledge of Daboll’s plans told The Associated Press. The people spoke to The AP over the past two days on the condition of anonymity because Daboll declined to discuss his future during his weekly video conference call on Monday. One person said Daboll isn’t expected to consider the NFL’s remaining vacancies, in Detroit, Philadelphia and Houston, and will now place his sole focus on preparing the Bills to face Kansas City in the AFC championship game on Sunday. The second person said Daboll has no interviews scheduled for the coaching openings. The person said that while it’s more likely Daboll will return for a fourth season in Buffalo, nothing is...
    With less than 48 hours left in his presidency, President Trump announced late Monday he’s lifting COVID-19-related travel restrictions he placed on foreign nationals coming from much of Europe and Brazil. Travel restrictions will continue for most coming from China and Iran. The restrictions would be lifted as of January 26, after President-elect Joe Biden comes into office, and Biden spokeswoman Jen Psaki tweeted Monday that the new administration does not intend to lift the travel conditions on January 26. “With the pandemic worsening, and more contagious variants emerging around the world, this is not the time to be lifting restrictions on international travel,” Psaki wrote. Mr. Trump cited coordination with U.S. officials and transparency as the justification for lifting travel restrictions on Europe and Brazil. The president’s proclamation said that “unrestricted entry into the United States of persons who have been physically present in the Schengen Area, the United...
