    President Biden and Anthony Fauci address the Omicron variant in late November Guardian: Omicron seems to carry higher Covid reinfection risk, says South Africa Scientists warn of higher rate of repeat infections but say vaccines appear to protect against serious illness As the EU’s public health agency warned that Omicron could cause more than half of all new Covid infections in Europe within the next few months, evidence was emerging, however, that vaccines still appear to offer protection against serious illness. According to new evidence collected in South Africa by its National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) the latest epidemiological evidence suggests that Omicron can evade immunity from infection with earlier variants and is causing reinfections at three times previous rates.

    Royal sources have indicated there is concern at the palace that the full scale of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s involvement in a sympathetic biography written about them may yet be revealed in court. “A lot more” could emerge on “what was briefed for the book” if the case she has brought against Associated Newspapers over publication of material from a letter written to her father proceeds, the source told the U.K. Sunday Times. This week, Meghan apologized for “misleading” a British court, saying she had forgotten that she had briefed her then press secretary Jason Knauf on material to be passed to Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, authors of Finding Freedom. A royal source also told the Times: “There is frustration all the way to the top, because a lot of people told them that it was unwise to proceed with the case. Now you have been found out. They [the royal family] will think they should never have taken it to court.” “Before Harry and Meghan pulled the trigger, we wanted to walk them through what...

    U.S. Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy expressed his strong support for vaccinating children against Covid-19 after actor Matthew McConaughey said he opposed mandating inoculation for kids. “I couldn’t mandate having to vaccinate the younger kids. I still want to find out more information,” McConaughey, who is considering a run for governor of Texas, said at the New York Times’ DealBook summit on Tuesday. McConaughey is vaccinated along with his wife. They live with his 90-year-old immunocompromised mother. His eldest son, who is 13, is vaccinated, according to the Times.

    REUTERS/Johanna Geron/IllustrationFrom online extremism that triggered the U.S. Capitol riots to false coronavirus claims and vaccine misinformation, it’s no secret that social media platforms like Facebook spread outrageous and erroneous content. What’s more, the Facebook Files, a collection of documents released by former Facebook manager Frances Haugen, show that the company played down these harmful effects. If there’s ever a moment to push for social media reform, it’s now. So far, companies like Facebook say they just need to continue hiring more content moderators to screen and remove dangerous posts or lies. However, content moderation still hasn’t stopped lots of extremism and misinformation from spreading. In fact, it remains an endless game of whack-a-mole. Here’s why. First, consider the problem of scale. Facebook, for instance, has billions of users, many who post daily. The resulting magnitude of user-generated content makes it impractical to hire a team of moderators large enough to screen and remove all harmful posts. Second, consider another problem working against content moderators: the social media algorithms distributing content online. Algorithms that make Facebook so effective for advertising...

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota’s Government Accountability Board called Monday for more information in at least one ethics complaint against Gov. Kristi Noem as it weighed multiple requests from the attorney general to consider whether the governor twice abused the powers of her office. Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg asked the board to consider two issues: Whether Noem’s use of state airplanes should be investigated for breaking the law and concerns about whether she interfered in a state agency that was evaluating her daughter’s application for a real estate appraiser license. The board also considered a third complaint, but the details of who made it or whom it was against were not public. After meeting for nearly an hour in a closed-door session, the four retired judges on the board dismissed one of the complaints, but did not make public which one. It is sending the other two complaints back to the people who made them with requests for more information. Attorney general spokesman Tim Bormann said the office had not heard anything from the Government Accountability Board following...
    Facebook researchers are said to have had extensive knowledge that coronavirus and misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccine existed on the company's apps, yet did little to combat it let alone share the information with the White House. Documents presented by Facebook whistleblower Frances Haugen show how multiple studies were run producing a number various number detailing the types of users who were most likely to share fake news. Lawmakers, academics and the White House urged Facebook to share such information publicly.      Facebook employees also knew misinformation about the coronavirus was dominating parts of the social media platform creating 'echo-chamber-like effects' ultimately reinforcing hesitancy over the vaccine.  Researchers at Facebook were well aware that misinformation about coronavirus was spreading across its platform but did little to prevent it White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Wednesday that it is 'unfortunately not surprising' for the administration to learn that Facebook knew of its problems with vaccine misinformation The trove of documents shows that in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Facebook carefully investigated how its platforms spread misinformation about life-saving vaccines.

    (CNN)NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has doubled-down on his stance to not release more information from the Washington Football Team (WFT) investigation.In July, the league fined the team $10 million after an investigation found the club's work environment was "highly unprofessional," especially for women. The league's investigation found that team owner Dan Snyder was responsible for the club's unprofessional and intimidating culture. Snyder was subsequently replaced by his wife, Tanya Snyder, who assumed responsibility for the day-to-day operations but a full written report was not released by the league.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — One person has died and more than a dozen others are hurt after a shooting inside a bar on the 200 block of West Seventh Street in St. Paul. The shooting started just after midnight early Sunday morning at the Seventh Street Truck Park. Police said multiple 911 callers “frantically begged for help” moments after the attack. (credit: St. Paul Police Department) One woman who police said was in her 20s died. Fourteen other people were taken to area hospitals for treatment. All of them are expected to survive. Good Samaritans worked with police to help victims while paramedics made it to the scene. Police said early Sunday that no suspects have been arrested, but preliminary information indicates there were several shooters. A motive has yet to be determined. “My heart breaks for the woman who was killed, her loved ones and everyone else who was in that bar this morning,” said St. Paul Chief of Police Todd Axtell. “In an instant, they found themselves caught in a hellish situation. I want them to know that we have...

                        Arizona State Treasurer Kimberly Yee sent a letter to Arizona’s Democratic Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly urging them not to vote for legislation that would allow the IRS to monitor Americans’ bank accounts for transactions of $600 or more in withdrawals and deposits. The proposal is part of the Biden administration’s $3.5 trillion American Families Plan, the so-called “human infrastructure” bill. Scott Earl, the CEO & president of Mountain West Credit Union Association, also signed the letter, representing multiple credit unions. Yee, who is running for governor of Arizona, said, “As it stands now, this proposal would threaten the financial security of more than 100 million Americans from all demographics. If it passes, the government will conduct one of the largest data mining exercises in American history, risking the security of the banking system.” She warned, “This proposed fishing expedition fundamentally changes the nature of the information that financial institutions are required to report and forces financial institutions to provide the government with information that is not related...
    West Virginia state treasurer Riley Moore said that no state should comply with a Biden proposal to force banks to hand over transaction data over $600 to the IRS, which he describes as an 'unconstitutional invasion.'   'The impact this is going to have on community banks, this is like Dodd Frank on steroids,' Moore told DailyMail.com.  Moore said big banks who supported Biden would be the beneficiaries of the proposal.  'In terms of compliance, a community bank, to be able to be in compliance, to set that type of regime up is just going to put them out of business,' he said. 'So who wins? The big banks win. The same banks that were bankrolling Biden's campaign in 2020.'   The proposal, backed by $79 billion in additional funding, would allow the IRS to peer into the aggregate inflows and outflows of a bank account with over $600.  This crackdown on unreported income is expected to generate $463 billion over the next decade, according to the Office of Tax Analysis. That money would be used to partially fund Biden's $3.5 trillion...

    (CNN)"Fauci" celebrates a life devoted to public service and the politicization of the response to Covid-19, in roughly that order. A National Geographic presentation premiering on Disney+, the documentary was shot with Dr. Anthony Fauci's cooperation (but not his creative input or financial benefit), consciously seeking to humanize the man while capturing the absurd levels of vitriol heaped upon him.Although the last 18 months figure prominently in public perceptions of Fauci, the film devotes considerable time to his role as the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director combating the AIDS epidemic -- which also saw him attacked, in that case for the pace of the government's response -- and Ebola, just two of the public-health crises that have punctuated his long career.Still, a bizarre shift occurred as Fauci's role addressing coronavirus clashed with then-President Trump's political priorities. Conservative politicians and pundits have vilified him, creating an atmosphere that his wife, Christine Grady, and daughter Jenny call surreal and "strange." (Fauci is shown arriving at work with a bodyguard, a tangible reminder of the threats he has faced.)Asked about...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/CNN) — Millions of Neiman Marcus Group customers are being alerted that their online accounts — including very sensitive information — may have been breached. The Dallas-based company said in a news release that it is notifying 4.6 million customers that information associated with their online accounts may have been obtained by a third party in May 2020. That information includes contact details, payment card numbers, gift card numbers and usernames and passwords, Neiman Marcus said.

    BOSTON (CBS) – WBZ has learned that 59% of vaccinated Massachusetts residents who end up in the hospital with COVID, 59% had underlying conditions. And the average age of a breakthrough patient is 82. “All of our metrics are flawed,” said Tufts Medical Center infectious disease Dr. Shira Doron. “Even in the hospitalization data, we have people who are in the hospital for COVID, and people who are in the hospital with COVID and not due to COVID.” READ MORE: Amherst Becomes First School District In Massachusetts To Require COVID Vaccine For Eligible StudentsWBZ viewers have repeatedly asked for more information, especially a side-by-side comparison showing how many COVID cases are vaccinated, and how many are not. If you try to do the math yourself, adding up the numbers the state puts out every week, it can look like about 30% of new COVID cases are among people who have had shots. But the Department of Public Health says don’t be misled. That math is flawed because its weekly breakthrough numbers sometimes include cases from prior weeks, making...
