    Dr. Marc Siegel said Thursday the fresh Covid-19 variant out of Johannesburg, South Africa, appeared to be the “highly contagious” variant behind 2,500 new cases in the region. “I’ve said before … I’m not always as concerned about these variants of concern, but these — this one, B.1.1.529, does concern me,” Siegel said in an interview with Fox News’ Mike Emanuel. “It’s got 32 mutations in the spike protein, which is how the virus spreads. And in the province around Johannesburg, there’s about 2,500 new cases over the past day, and they think — not proven yet — that this is the predominant variant.” The new variant B.1.1.529 appears to replace Delta, as South Africa enters the 4th wave. The variant is concerning because it seems to be highly transmissable and can evade immunity, both.????

    Pledges to cut greenhouse gas emissions made at the United Nations climate summit in Glasgow would hold global temperature rises to 1.9C, an analysis showed yesterday. It is the first indication that the world's nations could meet a pact made in 2015 at the Paris climate conference to keep increases below 2C. A big breakthrough came when India, the world's third biggest emitter, promised to reach 'net zero' by 2070, although it is asking for financial aid for developing countries from richer nations to be doubled to £730billion. The analysis by the University of Melbourne said that if the promises were fulfilled, temperatures would be 1.9C higher than pre-industrial levels.

    For the majority of her life, Sarah—a 36-year-old woman who identified herself to reporters by first name only—felt “tortured” by severe, unrelenting depression. “My daily life had become so restricted,” she recalled at a press briefing last week, describing suicidal impulses that overtook her several times each hour. “I barely moved, I barely did anything.” Diagnosed with major depressive disorder (MDD) in childhood, Sarah’s symptoms were relentless, despite multiple antidepressants and even electroconvulsive therapy. Desperate, Sarah enrolled in a clinical trial at the University of California San Francisco, opting to undergo an experimental neuromodulation therapy called deep brain stimulation, or DBS. After two surgeries and weeks of data collection, she is no longer paralyzed by suicidal thoughts, and for the first time in her life she’s experiencing a positive outlook on life. Daily decisions like what to eat no longer overwhelm her , and she can also utilize coping skills she’s learned in therapy more effectively than before. Sarah and her treatment team at the UCSF credit DBS with effectively saving her life. It’s the first time ever that a...
    One billion children - almost half of those in the world - are at 'extremely high risk' from climate change, the United Nations has warned. A new report said that youngsters living in the Central African Republic, Chad, Nigeria, Guinea, and Guinea-Bissau are most likely to be affected by a 'deadly combination' of exposure to climate and environmental factors, plus inadequate healthcare and education. Sub-Saharan Africa makes up 24 of the 33 countries where children are most at risk of environmental shocks including cyclones and heatwaves, as well as being particularly vulnerable to the events based on their access to essential services such as water and sanitation.

    During an interview aired on Wednesday’s broadcast of ABC’s “World News Tonight,” President Joe Biden said “there was no consensus” on the intelligence on the Taliban taking over Afghanistan, and that intelligence reports said a Taliban takeover was “more likely to be some time by the end of the year.” ABC host George Stephanopoulos asked, “Back in July, you said a Taliban takeover was highly unlikely. Was the intelligence wrong or did you downplay it?” Biden responded, “I think, there was no consensus. If you go back and look at the intelligence reports, they said that it was more likely to be some time by the end of the year.” Stephanopoulos then said, “You didn’t put a timeline out when you said it was highly unlikely. You just said flat out it’s highly unlikely the Taliban would take over.” Biden stated, “Yeah. Well, the question was whether or not it — the idea that the Taliban would take over was premised on the notion that the — somehow, the 300,000 troops we had trained and equipped was going to just...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There’s more concern over the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus. As cases surge, New York City’s former health commissioner, Dr. Tom Frieden, has a warning. READ MORE: COVID Vaccine In New York: Javits Center Mass Vaccination Site Shuts Down After Administering Over 600,000 Shots On Twitter, he said, “The higher infectivity of Delta means the threshold for herd immunity will be higher.” He says while a 70% vaccination rate may have been enough to reach herd immunity against the initial strain of COVID-19, it “likely isn’t high enough against Delta, as shown by case increases in places like the UK and Israel, which have high vaccination rates.” The higher infectivity of Delta means the threshold for herd immunity will be higher. 70% may have been enough before, but likely isn’t high enough against Delta, as shown by case increases in places like the UK and Israel, which have high vaccination rates.

    Lilibet Diana is set to be 'headstrong and highly creative' while her older brother Archie Harrison Mountbatten Windsor will be 'highly sensitive and eager to please', an astrologer has claimed. Theresa Cheung, a UK based astrology and dreams author believes the day a child is born reveals surprisingly accurate details about the destiny of the adult they will become.  She uses a combination of Eastern and Western astrology, numerology and the science of the month a person is born to profile people and reveal their potential.  Speaking to FEMAIL, Theresa - author of The Encyclopedia of Birthdays - said the day the Royal Family children were born can offer us a glimpse of their future personalities.  'Of course, each one of us has a choice about how we develop that potential and that's why no person born on the same day are exactly the same,' she said. 'But knowing a child's inner most personality traits can really help parents and carers understand their child better and make decisions on their behalf that play to their strengths rather than their weaknesses.' Here she analyses...
    Scientists have identified a new species of the 'really weird' creature previously misclassified as the world's smallest dinosaur, reinforcing the belief it was actually a lizard.  The 99-million-year-old specimen — which is stunningly preserved in amber —  is in the same genus as 'Oculudentavis khaungraae', whose original description as a hummingbird-sized dinosaur was retracted last year. Both fossils were discovered in the same area of Myanmar.  Discovery: Scientists have identified a new species of the 'really weird' creature previously misclassified as the world's smallest dinosaur, reinforcing the belief it was actually a lizard. Oculudentavis naga is pictured in an artist's reconstruction following the analysis HOW IS A DINOSAUR DISTINGUISHED FROM OTHER REPTILES? Dinosaurs had an upright stance which allowed them to run faster and for longer than other reptiles the same size. This was because of their straight back legs which were positioned directly under their bodies. By comparison, other reptiles had legs that sprawl out to the side like today's lizards and crocodiles. Their thigh bones are almost parallel to the ground, meaning they walk and run with a side-to-side motion. Dinosaur...
    The Indian variant of Covid-19 could be the dominant strain of the virus in the United States in just one week, according to disturbing new data.  The highly-transmissible strain - known as B.1.617.2 or 'Delta' - now makes up about 10 percent of US cases, up from just one percent less than a month ago, Outbreak.info claims.   'When will B.1.617.2 (Delta) be the dominant variant in the US? Could be next week (or next 2 weeks) based on trends in our testing data & sequences available,' researcher Alexandre Bolze wrote on Twitter Thursday.  'It's about 40 percent more infectious than the original Covid-19, may make you more sick, and there's some data out of England, people are about two-and-a-half times as likely to end up in the hospital if they have it,' Dr. John Goldman from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center told FOX 43.  The strain, which was first detected in India, has wreaked havoc in the United Kingdom, where it now makes up 91 percent of all new cases.   It has caused Covid cases in that country to surge...

    A study released Monday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) shows mRNA vaccines produced by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna are highly effective at preventing COVID-19 in “real world” conditions. The study was conducted among nearly 4,000 health care workers, first responders, and other essential workers in six states between December 14 and March 13. The results showed the risk of infection was reduced by 80 percent after one dose and 90 percent after two doses. Speaking during a White House COVID-19 response team briefing, CDC Director Rochell Walensky said the study showed the two vaccines can be effective not only in symptomatic infections but asymptomatic infections as well. She called it “tremendously encouraging,” and said it complements other recent studies in the New England Journal of Medicine and elsewhere.   But Walensky said that good news was tempered by the lasted virus figures from around the United States.  She said the daily average for infections rose by ten percent over the past week, to nearly 70,000 per day. Hospitalizations were up by more than four percent and deaths by...
    A new study may explain what motivates the 'self-focused nature of social media' – and people who constantly post selfies on Instagram.   From surveys of nearly 300 people, US psychologists found that narcissistic behaviour is linked to what they call 'vulnerable narcissism'.  Vulnerable narcissism can manifest itself as self-promoting behaviours – such as constant selfies – but is due to low self-esteem and extreme sensitivity to criticism, the researchers say.   According to the experts, from New York University, narcissism is 'not self-love' driven by an inflated sense of one's self, but 'self-loathing in disguise'.  Narcissism has been 'fundamentally misunderstood', they claim.   Narcissism is driven by insecurity, and not an inflated sense of self, the new study reveals. The authors say narcissism 'has been fundamentally misunderstood' RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Concerts and events are enjoyed MORE by people who tweet,...

    Brazil's 'super-covid' variant has arrived in the US with a first case in a Minnesota resident who recently returned from the hard-hit South American country.  The variant - known as P1 - is thought to be at least 50 percent more infectious.  It comes after President Biden reinstated travel bans blocking people travelers from entering the US from several countries with dangerous variants, including the UK and Brazil and added South Africa to the list.  But it was far too late. The Twin Cities resident tested positive for COVID019 on January 9 and was already ill by then   Brazil's variant is particularly worrisome because its mutations may render vaccines less effective.  The Brazilian variant has a mutation in its spike protein (circled in yellow) that makes it more contagious, capable of reinfection and potentially more immune to vaccines  The 
    Britain’s youngest terrorist, who was convicted of plotting to behead a police officer at the age of 14, is set to be released back on to the streets wit lifelong anonymity after serving just five years in custody. The terrorist is one of the few child criminals in Britain to be granted lifelong anonymity, meaning that upon his release the public will have zero knowledge that a terrorist is living in their midst. A Parole Board hearing for the convicted terrorist — referred to only as ‘RXG’ — will be held next week, and it is “highly likely” that he will be released on licence, The Mirror reports. ‘RXG’ was handed a “life” sentence with a minimum of five years in prison at Manchester Crown Court in 2015, after pleading guilty to inciting terrorism overseas. The court heard that he convinced 18-year-old Sevdet Besim to commit mass murder and behead a policeman in Melbourne, Australia during an Anzac Day, an Australian equivalent of Remembrance Sunday or Veterans Day. The two terrorists would have “in all probability” been successful had British police not uncovered...
    The drug remdesivir, long touted as a potential Covid-19 treatment, has been used to successfully cure a patient who suffered a rare reaction to the disease.  A 31-year-old man infected with the coronavirus experienced unusual symptoms due to a genetic disorder called XLA, which prevented him from making antibodies to fight infection.  The patient was twice admitted to hospital with confirmed Covid-19, with moderate but persistent symptoms. His condition was stable but did not improve on its own.  On both occasions, treatment with remdesivir rapidly led to improvement in his condition and allowed him to be discharged.  The researchers say the patient's inability to make antibodies offered a unique insight into the functioning of the drug in Covid-19 patients. Writing in Nature Communications they say remdesevir likely has antiviral properties and could be highly effective for some patients.   Remdesivir was initially developed to treat hepatitis C and then repurposed as a potential Ebola treatment, Due to the similarity in the structures of these viruses to SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes Covid-19, experts hoped it may be able to help...
    Reuters November 28, 2020 0 Comments The World Health Organization’s top emergency expert said on Friday it would be “highly speculative” for the WHO to say the coronavirus did not emerge in China, where it was first identified in a food market in December last year. China is pushing a narrative via state media that the virus existed abroad before it was discovered in the central city of Wuhan, citing the presence of coronavirus on imported frozen food packaging and scientific papers claiming it had been circulating in Europe last year. “I think it’s highly speculative for us to say that the disease did not emerge in China,” Mike Ryan said at a virtual briefing in Geneva after being asked if COVID-19 could have first emerged outside China. “It is clear from a public health perspective that you start your investigations where the human cases first emerged,” he added, saying that evidence might then lead to other places. He repeated that the WHO intended to send researchers to the Wuhan food market to probe the virus origins further. The...

    By DANICA KIRKA and JILL LAWLESS | The Associated Press LONDON  — AstraZeneca said Monday that late-stage trials showed its coronavirus vaccine was up to 90% effective, giving public health officials hope they may soon have access to a vaccine that is cheaper and easier to distribute than some of its rivals. The results are based on interim analysis of trials in the U.K. and Brazil of a vaccine developed by Oxford University and manufactured by AstraZeneca. No hospitalizations or severe cases of COVID-19 were reported in those receiving the vaccine. AstraZeneca is the third major drug company to report late-stage results for a potential COVID-19 vaccine as the world anxiously waits for scientific breakthroughs that will bring an end to a pandemic that has wrought economic devastation and resulted in nearly 1.4 million confirmed deaths. Pfizer and Moderna last week reported preliminary results from late-stage trials showing their vaccines were almost 95% effective. But, unlike its rivals, the AstraZeneca vaccine doesn’t have to be stored at ultra-cold temperatures, making it easier to distribute, especially in developing countries. “I think...
    By Wayne Cole SYDNEY (Reuters) - South Australia's drastic six-day lockdown was triggered by a "lie" to contact tracers from a single individual and restrictions across the state would now be lifted much sooner than first planned, authorities said on Friday. The shock announcement came just two days after the state government ordered people to stay at home and shut many businesses to combat what was considered a highly contagious outbreak of coronavirus. South Australia state Premier Steven Marshall told a media conference that one man at a pizza bar tied to the outbreak had lied to contact tracers, claiming he had only bought a pizza there when he was actually working at the shop. Authorities had thought he had caught the virus during a very short exposure, when in fact he had been working several shifts with another positive case. Because of the lie, authorities believed the strain of virus was highly contagious, taking 24 hours or less for a newly infected person to become infectious to others. "To say I am fuming about the actions of this individual...
    The first radio burst discovered in the Milky Way is now repeating as it travels from a magnetar – a neutron star with a strong magnetic field – 32,616 light-years away. The initial flash of energy was first detected in April and scientist have identified two more, confirming fast radio bursts 'are emitted by magnetars at cosmological distances.' A team working with the Westerbrok Telescope in the Netherlands captured the signal, which came as two short bursts, each one millisecond long and 1.4 seconds apart. The bursts were also not emitted with the same strength, which suggest magnetars may have more than one process capable of producing fast radio bursts. Scroll down for video  The initial flash of energy was first detected in April and scientist have identified two more, confirming fast radio bursts 'are emitted by magnetars at cosmological distances' Fast radio bursts (FRB) are mysterious, brief pulses and although their origins are unclear, scientists use these flashes of energy to study space along their path to Earth.

    Cybersecurity researchers recovered 75,000 'highly sensitive' documents from USB devices auctioned off on eBay. The University of Aberlay purchased 100 secondhand devices and all by 32 of them contained 'deleted' files that could be extracted using publicly available tools. The files were collected using a USB Write Blocker, a forensic tool used to pull mass data from devices, and a standard computer.

    Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett tweeted on Friday afternoon that after sending a “highly critical” column about Democratic nominee Joe Biden, his internet service cut out. He called the incident “odd, if not curious,” and reassured his followers that he drove to a nearby store to safely dispatch the piece. “I find it odd, if not curious, that the moment I hit ‘send’ on my column that’s highly critical of Joe Biden my Wi-Fi service disconnected,” Jarrett initially tweeted. “Inexplicably, it will be out all day.

    Bradley Cortright August 10, 2020 0 Comments As presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden narrows in on his vice presidential pick, there is no shortage of people voicing their opinion on who he should choose. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) says that she will be “highly supportive” of whoever Biden picks to be his running mate, and he has a large pool of impressive contenders to choose from. During an interview on CNN on Monday, Klobuchar was asked her previous comments on Biden’s vice presidential search process, where she shared her belief that Biden should choose a woman of color to be his running mate. CNN’s Poppy Harlow noted that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) recently met with Biden, and asked, “What do you think, senator, an all-white ticket would say about the Democratic Party right now?” “You know, Poppy, Joe Biden is going to pick the best person for that job. And there are so many incredibly qualified women — including the governor of Michigan — they are all qualified,” Klobuchar responded.  She continued, “What I was trying to capture here was that this is a...
    Ghislaine Maxwell has won a legal fight to keep  secret 'highly intrusive' documents about her sex life - just hours before they were due to be released. The British socialite, 58, argued it could destroy her chances of a fair trial against charges she facilitated the late financier Jeffrey Epstein's sexual abuse of girls. Maxwell's deposition had been taken in April 2016 for a now-settled civil defamation lawsuit against her by Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who had accused Epstein of having kept her as a 'sex slave' with Maxwell's assistance.  Maxwell made last ditch scrambles on Thursday urging the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to keep the deposition about her sex life sealed. Her lawyer argued that the potentially embarrassing details could make it 'difficult if not impossible' to find an impartial jury, out of the public eye. The appeals court delayed the release of the dossiers until at least September 22 when Maxwell's appeal will be heard on an expedited basis. Ghislaine Maxwell appears via video link during her arraignment hearing where she was denied bail for her role aiding Jeffrey...

    (CNN)The head of the government's effort to develop a vaccine against Covid-19 says he expects the vaccine to have efficacy rates "in the 90%" range -- but that there might not be enough vaccine available for all Americans until the end of next year. "I think it will be a very effective vaccine. That's my prediction," said Moncef Slaoui, chief adviser of Operation Warp Speed.

    An additional page of notes believed to be written by ex-FBI agent Peter Strzok pertaining to former national security adviser Michael Flynn have been found by prosecutors. The notes were mentioned by Acting U.S. Attorney Michael Sherwin in a new court filing, though the notes themselves were not included in the filing. Journalist John Solomon reported on his website Just the News that the notes from Strzok were believed to have been written in early January, before the FBI spoke to Flynn and accused him of lying. “This page of notes was taken by former Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok. While the page itself is undated; we believe that the notes were taken in early January 2017, possibly between January 3 and January 5,” Sherwin wrote in his court filing to U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan, who has refused to dismiss charges against Flynn even though the U.S. Department of Justice dropped its case against Flynn. An appeals court on Wednesday ordered Sullivan to drop the charges against Flynn. “A source directly familiar with the discovery of the document told Just the...
    Legal professional Common William Barr’s declaration he changed Geoffrey Berman of the US Attorney’s Office environment for the Southern District of New York renewed the debate about the extent to which Barr is acting on President Donald Trump’s interests rather than the nation’s. The office of Berman, who is refusing to quit, is major a probe into Trump’s attorney Rudolph Giuliani and associates and has also indicted a Turkish point out-owned company concerned in an Iran sanctions-busting situation which Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has elevated with Trump. Scores of former Justice Department officers experienced now known as for Barr to give up more than a sequence of interventions that seem especially created to advantage Trump politically. Berman’s refusal to go quietly in the meantime set off a new crisis and governmental showdown for an now reeling administration that is struggling to cope with a pandemic, a consequent financial disaster and a nationwide reckoning on race. The President had been wondering of eliminating Berman for two a long time and thinks that the investigation into Giuliani is an try...
