    The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) warned travelers Monday to expect long lines at airports this Thanksgiving and to 'pack some patience.'   The agency revealed that it has 4,200 fewer staff to deal with the increased traffic because 7% of employees have not complied with vaccine mandate that kicks in today.  However, airlines are putting on more staff to deal with the Thanksgiving surge with many offering overtime or bonuses for employees who work the holiday.    TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein tweeted on Monday morning that the vaccine mandate would not affect airline travel.  She wrote: 'Approximately 93 percent of @TSA employees are in compliance with today's deadline for the federal employee vaccine mandate and exemption requirements.

Plans to close the facility were first reported in August, with officials at the time saying it would be a temporary measure, while others have suggested it could be made permanent if the MCC...

    A powerful solar storm is due to hit Earth today and could cause havoc for power grids, weather agencies have warned.  The UK's Met Office and the US's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) have forecasted a coronal mass ejection (CME) – a massive expulsion of plasma from the Sun's corona (its outermost layer) at around 12pm EST (5pm BST) today.  Possible effects of the solar storm, caused by the CME, are power grid fluctuations and orientation irregularities for spacecraft in the form of 'increased drag' on low-Earth orbiters.   The aurora – a natural light display in Earth's sky, also known as the Northern Lights – may also be visible as low as New York in the US and the north of England in the UK.  A solar or geomagnetic storm is a major disturbance of Earth's magnetosphere - the area around Earth controlled by the planet's magnetic field - often caused by CMEs.

    Afghanistan's new Taliban rulers are set to unveil their new government today as the country's economy teeters on the verge of collapse amid food shortage warnings.

    Some 4.5 billion years ago, a lump of molten rock began to form in the solar system that eventually evolved into present-day Earth. David A. Roberts, an artist and computer scientist, created the evolutionary story of the planet in a mesmerizing video that puts billions of years of transitions into a four-minute simulation. The epic tale starts with an extremely hot and crater filled protoplanet that is still forming into a stable world.  The video transitions to a flat view of Earth, showing plate tectonics beginning to form, approximately 3 billion years ago. Moving along the evolutionary timeline, Robert shows viewers colorful features that represents water flowing on the planet and continents rising above the surface. The end of the video shows bright lights shining from continents worldwide, indicating that the once red hot world is now inhabited by humans. 'Concluding the prelude on the early earth, the pace slows to a cycle between day and night, terrain becoming fixed as tectonic movements become imperceptible,' Roberts shared in a blog post. 'Soon the night reveals unprecedented patterns of light, as...

After rolling out the ability for US users to directly buy and sell cryptocurrency directly from their accounts last November, PayPal’s new “Checkout with Crypto” allows users to instantly convert their Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, or Bitcoin Cash to US dollars (with no additional transaction fees) that PayPal then uses to complete the transaction. If a merchant doesn’t take US dollars, PayPal also converts those dollars into local currency at standard conversion rates set by PayPal. PayPal will support several types of cryptocurrency, including Ethereum and Bitcoin. PayPal is not the first payment app to offer support for cryptocurrency The feature will automatically appear in the PayPal wallet if a user has a “sufficient cryptocurrency balance to cover an eligible purchase,” and you’ll be able to see your crypto balances for each kind of coin in the app....
                      by John Singleton  Black Lives Matter. Believe All Women. Everybody wants to be on the right side of contentious civil rights issues — that’s why the debate over what that “right side” is becomes so intense. But the most quantifiable systemic injustice in our nation today is not black versus white, or male versus female. It’s old against young. During the coronavirus pandemic, abandonment of adult responsibility in respected institutions — medical, educational, and parental — is indicative of sweeping moral collapse. Making sacrifices for future generations used to make sense in a grown-up world. But baby boomers, those children of the ’60s who have controlled the country for 30 years, have desensitized our culture with their apathy and entitlement. Why should healthy children be held to the same medical standard as a 70-year-old “boomer” with multiple comorbidities? Why have young people, who beat COVID-19 quicker than the annual flu, been forced to surrender a year of their lives to satisfy the anxieties of a paranoid gerontocracy? The calculated hysteria...
    Sci-fi movies always give us a fictional and often exaggerated idea what the future or living in outer space might look like, including high-tech new inventions. And these retro pictures and drawings, collated by Bored Panda, show a 20th century view of what the future might look like, including their predictions for mobile phones and air travel. People from around the world have been sharing snaps of the futuristic inventions, which include an illustration from 1900 that predicted that by the year 2000, people would be using balloons to walk across lakes. Other inventions that were far from accurate included floating trains and airplanes that looked more like a cruise ship with a swimming pool in a glass pod.  However, predictions for high-tech self-driving cars, and a rather retro version of video calling, which included talking into a horn-like speaker, bear some relation to reality.  Here, FEMAIL shares the sci-fi version of present day society that was imagined by people from across the last century. Retro pictures, collated by Bored Panda , show what people from decades ago thought...
    President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will meet with Asian-American leaders Friday when they visit Atlanta, Georgia, as the trip shifted from politics to personal after a shooting spree left six Asian-American women dead. But the trip will include a meeting with Stacey Abrams, the failed gubernatorial candidate turned voting rights activist, whose work in the state helped give Biden a victory in Georgia last year. He was the first Democratic presidential candidate to carry the state since 1992.  Abrams is a rising star in the Democratic Party and was on the list for consideration as Biden's running mate. The speculation is she will make another gubernatorial run in 2022.  The president and vice president were already scheduled to be in the city for their 'Help is Here' tour - a way the administration is promoting its $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package.  But the trip shifted tone after Tuesday's trio of shootings at Atlanta spas left eight dead. Instead, a meeting was set up with Asian-American state legislators and community advocates. They will meet with Asian-American leaders at Emory...

She labeled the package as a "massive woke progressive Democrat wish list." "The GOP has messaged against this ridiculous bill. We should do everything to stop it.

    PREMIER LEAGUE club fears over the potential cost of European football’s planned revamp could break out into open conflict on Wednesday. The latest 'virtual shareholder' meeting of the 20 clubs will be dominated by a debate over Uefa’s latest proposals for a 36-team Champions League from 2024. 1Prem chief Richard Masters will have to act as peace keeperCredit: Getty Images - Getty Anger over the plans has been simmering for a fortnight with the Big Six pitted against a number of their rivals. Those outside the regular Euro competitors are furious at the concept of past performances in the Champions League and Europa League allowing a backdoor route into the elite even if clubs miss out on the top four. But there is rising concern over the financial repercussions of extending Europe’s biggest club competition from 125 games per season to 225. A number of Prem clubs believe that the Big Six are pushing a development which would benefit them at the expense of their domestic rivals by ensuring they take larger slices of a much bigger Euro pie.
