    Map of countries that have identified omicron variant of COVID-19 within their borders PytyCzech/Getty Images/iStockphoto Although scientists have detected few severe symptoms associated with the omicron variant, some countries are reacting with extreme measures to contain its spread. The United States, for example, imposed a travel ban aimed at a number of African countries and extended mask mandates for public transportation for weeks, working to get ahead of the variant as doctors scramble to learn more about its effects. Other countries have extended their already burdensome restrictions in light of the new variant, despite protests that have emerged in multiple countries against what some people see as heavy-handed measures. Here are some of the strictest COVID-19 requirements currently in place around the world. Germany German officials on Thursday announced a mandatory lockdown for unvaccinated people, keeping them from almost all public spaces and limiting their interactions with others. Under the new rules, unvaccinated Germans can only enter essential businesses, such as pharmacies, and can’t gather with more than two people from outside their households, even in private.

    Since the COVID-19 virus first appeared in December 2019, thousands of variants have emerged — but, until this month, Delta reigned supreme. The arrival of omicron — with the first U.S. case detected in San Francisco on Wednesday and more in New York, Minnesota and Colorado a day later — is a reminder that Delta isn’t the endgame. How do COVID-19’s two most recent and worrisome variants compare? Here’s a snapshot of what we know. Mutations Omicron has the most mutations of any variant of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. We still have to learn how those genetic changes behave. But they take hold for a reason — because they help a variant excel. Delta: It has 13 mutations. Of these, nine are in the spike protein, the protrusion on the surface of the virus that helps it latch onto human cells. Specifically, two are in a molecular hook, called the “receptor-binding domain,” helping it cling to cells more tightly, according to Suresh V. Kuchipudi of Penn State University, who studies viral evolution. Omicron: It’s a mutation monster —...
    Most Americans believe President Biden is responsible for dividing the American people, a Convention of States/Trafalgar Group survey released Tuesday found.  “To what extent do you believe President Biden is responsible for the divisions in the American people?” the survey asked. Overall, 54.2 percent said Biden is responsible for dividing Americans, and of those, 39.4 percent said he is “very” responsible.  Meanwhile, 45.8 percent said he is generally not responsible for the division.  The vast majority of Democrats, 78.7 percent, do not believe Biden is responsible for dividing the American people, but a majority of Republicans and independents, 88 percent and 64.1 percent, respectively, do. The survey, taken November 13 – 16, 2021, among 1,092 likely general election voters, has a margin of error of +/- 2.97 percent.  While Biden made several mentions of unity in his inauguration speech 10 months ago, his presidency has been plagued by divisive rhetoric coming straight from the commander-in-chief, as he as directly pitted vaccinated Americans against unvaccinated Americans. “We’ve been patient, but our patience is wearing thin,” he said in a September 9 speech, scolding unvaccinated...
    Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy advocated in favor of overturning the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade, calling it “one of the most poorly reasoned decisions” on the Senate floor Tuesday. Kennedy addressed the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take up in May. The case responds to a 2018 Mississippi law that bans abortion at 15 weeks of gestation, challenging the precedent that the right to an abortion is protected before fetal viability. Kennedy said that lawmakers have ongoing debates on ways to “protect” and “lift up” the powerless, including unborn and potential lives. The senator said Roe v. Wade gives the “managerial elite” the power to rule over moral decisions for the rest of the American people, stripping them of the right to make those decisions independently. “Now Roe v. Wade is about abortion, we know that. But it’s also about something else. Roe v. Wade is also about federalism. Roe v. Wade is also about the American people,” Kennedy said. “Roe v. Wade is about whether a...
    THE most vulnerable in the country are set to get four coronavirus jabs in a race to stop the spread of the Omicron variant, an NHS chief has revealed. It comes as more cases of Omicron were today detected in the UK - now totalling 22. 1Amanda Pritchard said more people will be eligible for booster vaccines with some groups also needing a fourth doseCredit: Reuters NHS England's chief executive, Amanda Pritchard, today said that millions more people are eligible for boosters. Speaking at a Downing Street press conference this afternoon she said that the NHS would be following new advise from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). She said: "The NHS Covid programme is in its most complex phase and is working at brake neck speed at this change in eligibility. "The JCVI has also recommended the introduction of a fourth jab for the most vulnerable, because they are undergoing chemotherapy or are having other problems with their immune system. "We will vaccinate the most vulnerable first and then open it up in other waves." It was yesterday...

    The Auburn Tigers had a certain victory in the Iron Bowl but choked it away in four overtimes to the Alabama Crimson Tide. Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, as the Auburn Tigers lost a very winnable Iron Bowl to the Alabama Crimson Tide in four overtimes, 24-22. Alabama did not score a single point until the fourth quarter. Auburn may not have had a banner day offensively, but Derek Mason’s defense came to play to at least give the Tigers a chance. Unfortunately, Auburn lost its Super Bowl at home as pretty much the whole college football world watched this choke job unfold. Auburn is now 6-6, while Alabama improves to 11-1. While the Tigers get ready for their meaningless bowl game, the Crimson Tide are very much alive to make the College Football Playoff entering the SEC Championship Game against No. 1 Georgia in Atlanta next Saturday.Auburn football: 3 people most to blame for choking away the Iron Bowl3.

    LABOUR MP Stella Creasy has been trying to fly the flag for women this week, taking her baby into a Commons debate – and being reprimanded by Parliament for doing so. This is not the first time the Walthamstow MP has done this. 6As an MP, Stella Creasy is on a basic annual salary of £81,932 (plus expenses) — a salary that is way higher than that of the average ­working mumCredit: PA She has taken part in other debates with three-month-old son Pip, and following the 2019 election was sworn in while holding baby daughter Hettie.  I always like to be a cheerleader for women but I don’t think Stella should bring her baby to work with her. After all, most workplaces do not allow staff to bring kids with them to work — so why should Parliament be any different?  Female police officers don’t take their babies on the beat.  Female teachers don’t take their babies into the classroom.  And can you imagine if female ­surgeons took their kids into the ­operating theatre?

    It is season over for the Ohio State Buckeyes, and these people are to blame for losing to the Michigan Wolverines. The Ohio State Buckeyes lost The Game to the Michigan Wolverines, 42-27. It had not happened since Jim Harbaugh was in his first year coaching the NFL‘s San Francisco 49ers. Seemingly a decade in the making, the Wolverines got the job done and will face presumably Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game next Saturday with a trip to the College Football Playoff on the line.

    This year Thanksgiving was rated a less important holiday than last year, according to a Rasmussen Reports poll released Thursday. In 2020, 46 percent of Americans ranked Thanksgiving as one of the “nation’s most important holidays.” That number has tumbled five points to 41 percent in 2021. But only 11 percent believe Thanksgiving is “one of the least important, while 45% rate it somewhere in between.” The polling results come as America celebrates its 400th Thanksgiving, 401 years after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock to escape religious persecution in Europe. Breitbart News’s Rebecca Mansour writes about Thursday’s momentous celebration: If this fact is news to you, I’m not surprised. After all, there was very little fanfare last year to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival at Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620, an event which President John Quincy Adams described as the “birthday” of our nation. But that seminal moment in world history passed with barely a mention. This year, you’ll see more about the inflated price of Thanksgiving dinner than about the 400th anniversary of the holiday. And while it’s...
    A majority of people say they hope to avoid discussing politics this year at Thanksgiving, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. Two-thirds of respondents said they do not wish to talk about politics with friends and family over the Thanksgiving holiday , according to the poll . On the other hand, 21% said they are looking forward to discussing politics. BLACK LIVES MATTER ACTIVIST WONDERS WHETHER WAUKESHA ATTACK LINKED TO RITTENHOUSE VERDICT: 'SOUNDS POSSIBLE' THE 'REVOLUTION HAS STARTED' About 50% of respondents said it was "not likely at all" they will engage in a heated political debate over the holiday, 24% said it was not so likely, 15% said it was somewhat likely, and 9% said it was very likely. "A heaping serving of political back and forth with your cranberries and stuffing? No way, say Americans, who would far rather feast on the big meal than feud with each other on Turkey Day," said Tim Malloy, a polling analyst with Quinnipiac University.

    China’s northwestern city of Hotan recorded “the worst average air quality” in the world in 2020, India’s Business Standard newspaper reported Tuesday citing data from the air quality tracker IQAir. Hotan is located in a western Chinese region notorious for an extensive concentration camp system. Multiple world governments, including the administration of President Joe Biden, have deemed China’s actions against the ethnic minority Uyghur people there a genocide. The IQAir tracker, which measures harmful fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in the atmosphere, ranked Hotan as number one on its index of most polluted cities in 2020. Hotan posted an average PM2.5 rating of 110.2 for 2020. “Particulate matter contains microscopic solids or liquid droplets that are so small that they can be inhaled and cause serious health problems,” according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). “Some particles less than 10 micrometers in diameter can get deep into your lungs and some may even get into your bloodstream,” the EPA states on its website. “Of these, particles less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter, also known as fine particles or PM2.5,...
    THE UK's most dangerous regions for drivers have been revealed as thousands of Brits crash ever year - but do you live in a hotspot? Despite having some of the safest roads in Europe, around 70 Brits are seriously injured on our roads every day. 5Friday commuters are the most at risk for collisions 570 Brits are seriously injured in smashes every dayCredit: Getty Although road safety has improved dramatically, and accidents have fallen 92% in the past six years, in order to stay alert to avoid potential accidents this winter, here are the hotspots to be aware of.

    LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — A thick cloud of smog that enveloped Pakistan’s cultural capital on Wednesday has earned it the ignominious title of the world’s most polluted city, according to a Swiss air quality monitoring company. Platform IQAir said that Lahore now stands at the top of its polluted cities ranking — with an air quality index of 203 on the US AQI scale, versus runner-up Dehli, India, with 183. That standing was at 0949 GMT; the two cities had traded places at least once over the course of the morning. Increasing smog and particle-laden air has sickened thousands of people with respiratory and other illnesses, forcing many to stay at home on particularly dirty days like Wednesday. Dhaka, Bangladesh came in third, with an index of 169, and Kolkata, India at fourth, with a reading of 168. Lahore stood at third place a day earlier. Lahore was once known as the city of gardens, which were ubiquitous during the Mughal era of the 16th to 19th centuries. Intense urbanization and surging population growth have left little room for greenery...
    Dennis Prager dug in on his comparison between unvaccinated Americans and gay men who were pariahs at the height of the AIDS crisis. In a Newsmax appearance earlier this month, the conservative radio host said, “During the AIDS crisis, can you imagine if gay men and intravenous drug users, who were the vast majority of the people with AIDS, had they been pariahs the way the non-vaccinated are? But it would have been inconceivable. And it should have been inconceivable! They should not have been made pariahs. But this is kosher, this is okay.” Prager was immediately called out for his baffling take, and he doubled down with questions like, “Were there government mandates to fire every American with AIDS? Or fire every gay man?” During a recent event for Awaken Church, Prager riffed on how people were blasting him for those tweets, “because I had the chutzpah to say the unvaccinated are pariahs the way that gays were during the AIDS crisis.” He pointed to a “monopoly on victimhood” mentality to claim that’s why people rejected his comparison between...
    LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — Lahore on Tuesday became the world’s third most polluted city as increasing smog has engulfed Pakistan’s cultural capital, an air quality monitoring company said. The bad air has sickened hundreds with respiratory and other illnesses. Lahore ranked third behind Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, and Mongolia’s capital Ulaanbaatar on the pollution index, according to Switzerland-based air quality information platform IQAir. Increasing air pollution and smog have forced authorities to order a partial closure of schools in Lahore, once known as the city of gardens. Authorities said they closed some factories and some were fined for not using technology that helps in controlling pollution. Doctors are advising people to wear face masks to avoid respiratory related diseases. Rafeh Alam, a environmental expert who has been campaigning to create awareness among people about the dangers of increasing pollution, said many people, including women and children, have been exposed to toxic air, which causes several diseases. He urged the government to take measures to reduce air pollution. Adding to vehicle and industry pollution is the popular practice...

    During an interview that aired Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Life, Liberty & Levin,” former President Donald Trump tore into his successor over the “catastrophic events” that have taken place over the last 10 months. Trump, pointing to inflation, the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border and the Afghanistan withdrawal, argued President Joe Biden’s tenure in office had been “the most embarrassing and humiliating period in the history of our country.” “Inflation is eating our people alive,” Trump lamented. “The southern border has never been like this, ever — I mean in any country possibly. You know, you may go to most remote places in the world, and nobody has had borders like this. We have millions and millions of people. This isn’t hundreds of thousands or tens of thousands. These are millions of people that are just coming in here unchecked. And when you think of it, countries are emptying out their jails into the United States. We’re like a dumping ground. When you see that, then I think the single most embarrassing moment in the history of our country...

    Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson reacted to Friday’s Rittenhouse acquittal with a scathing rebuke of the media for its portrayal of Kyle Rittenhouse, which based on the trial proceedings turned out to be incorrect. Carlson also said it showed the diminished role the media play in America. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Here is how the story started, just so we all remember. Seventeen-year–old Kyle Rittenhouse wound up on the street in Kenosha in the first place with a gun for one reason. He was there because in the summer of 2020, the leadership of the Democratic Party endorsed mob violence for political ends. That’s why there were riots in Kenosha that night, because people like Kamala Harris supported those riots. More than a year later, as Rittenhouse stood trial for murder, those very same people implied there would be more violence if he was acquitted. So imagine being a juror on that case, imagine the pressure and the fear. It would take enormous moral courage for any juror to ignore the threats and follow the evidence to its logical conclusion,...

    Halfpoint Images | Moment | Getty Images More than a year and a half into the Covid-19 pandemic, many American workers are burned out. The remedy may be a four-day workweek, according to a survey from Eagle Hill Consulting. Of those U.S. employees polled, 53% said they are experiencing burnout, with women and younger workers showing the highest levels, at 56% and 62% respectively. Fully 83% said a shortened workweek would help. The survey included 1,010 respondents from a random sample of employees across the U.S. "Employee burnout has been simmering for years — and the twin problems of the pandemic and workforce shortage have exacerbated the problem," said Melissa Jezio, president and CEO of Eagle Hill Consulting. While not new, the idea of a four-day workweek has slowly been gaining ground since the Covid-19 pandemic struck. In July, Rep. Mark Takano, D-Calif., introduced a bill that reduces the standard workweek to 32 hours, from 40.

    The Oklahoma Sooners fell flat on their faces against the Baylor Bears. Who is most responsible for the humbling road loss? As the Oklahoma Sooners stumbled on the road against the Baylor Bears in the form of a 27-14 loss, several members of Oklahoma’s team fell short more than others. The entirety of Oklahoma underperformed Saturday afternoon, and it’s clear that the who team should share some blame, but some deserve a little more criticism than others. Oklahoma’s offense was atrocious and, unfortunately for the Sooners, its defense was particularly bad at stopping the run. So, who is responsible for that?

    Despite having the highest vaccination rate in the country, Vermont has been dealing with a dramatic increase of COVID-19 cases. Infections have risen by 55 percent over the last two weeks to an average of about 300 per day, according to a recent report from the state's Department of Financial Regulation. Yet 80.9 percent of the state's total population has had at least one dose - second only to Massachusetts - and 71.8 percent are fully vaccinated, higher than anywhere else, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). So why is The Green Mountain State facing its worst Covid surge? Experts say there are a few reasons for this including low vaccination rates among younger people, college students gathering unmasked for Halloween parties, and not enough residents with natural immunity.  Vermont is the most vaccinated state in the nation with 80.9% of the population with one dose and 71.8% fully vaccinated but cases are surging (file image) A new report finds that Covid cases have risen 55% over the last two weeks to an average...
    Strict lockdowns pushed by White House advisers Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx failed to stop the vulnerable dying from COVID-19, while families suffered and children lost out on their education, according to a forthcoming book by Trump adviser Dr. Scott Atlas. His is the latest contribution to unpicking how the Trump administration responded to the pandemic. And the former Stanford radiologist offers an unsparing account of dysfunction and political paralysis that allowed Trump's two most high-profile scientific advisers to publicly contradict the president and hijack the response. 'A Plague Upon Our House: My Fight at the Trump White House to Stop COVID from Destroying America,' is published on November 23 by Bombardier. 'People were dying from the virus, and the lockdown policies were not preventing the deaths,' he writes in a copy obtained by DailyMail.com 'The simple logic of assuming you could stop the spread of, and some said eliminate, a highly contagious virus by shutting down society after millions had been infected was worse than nonsensical.  'The idea of stopping all businesses and closing schools while quarantining healthy...
    The vice president attempted to explain how politics was different from science. "In government, we campaign with 'The Plan,'" Harris said in what is believed to be a French accent. "Uppercase T, uppercase P, The Plan!" "And then the environment is such we're expected to defend 'The Plan' even when the first time we roll it out there may be some glitches and it's time to re-evaluate and then do it again," she told the French scientists – again using a purported French accent.

    MORE than 40,000 people died at home last year than usual – but most didn’t have Covid. Figures show the number of people passing away in their own homes surged by a third in 2020 to 166,576. 1More people than usual died at home last year, the ONS foundCredit: Getty Meanwhile, deaths in hospitals and care homes were below average for much of the year as people stayed away. Sarah Caul, of the Office for National Statistics, said: “Unlike in hospitals and care homes, the main cause of death has not been Covid-19.  “Instead we have seen big increases in people dying from other things such as heart disease, dementia and Alzheimer’s and various cancers.” The ONS found at-home deaths in England and Wales were 41,321 higher than an average year and 29 per cent higher than in 2019. Between January 2020 and June 2021 the total was 252,486, which was 63,000 more than in a normal 18-month period. Heart disease, including heart attacks and strokes, was the main cause of the deaths.

    A RISE in dog attacks have sparked fresh concern about the threat that canines pose to the general public.

Pitbulls Pitbulls have historically been bred to fight and therefore their fighting instincts can be a serious concern for owners and neighbours alike. In November 2021, a boy from Caerphilly South Wales, was reportedly mauled to death by a pitbull while visiting a school friend. Locals described the animal as “trouble" as it was later terminated by officers on the scene.

    Although Republicans are feeling bullish about their chances of retaking Congress in 2022, they're experiencing some problems in recruiting top-tier Senate candidates to run against Democratic incumbents. Politico reports that Republicans are feeling particularly upset about New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu's decision to forsake the Senate and to run for another term as governor. Although the current political environment is favorable to Republicans, GOP consultants tell Politico that good candidates matter, as evidenced by the current troubles facing Trump-endorsed Pennsylvania Senate hopeful Sean Parnell, who this week is facing allegations of physical abuse from his wife in a courtroom custody battle. "People are demoralized. People are saying, 'This is devastating. What's our plan?'" one GOP operative tells the publication. "Everyone is kind of like, 'What are we doing here? What is going on?'" Another McConnell ally tells Politico that the Sununu decision was a "recruiting failure" on the GOP's part, and Senate Republicans were particularly stung by Sununu's claim that he didn't want to go to Washington because he didn't believe he could do anything productive there. "This was handled...

    Everyone should undergo a mid-life ‘brain MOT’ in the future to spot those most at risk of developing dementia in their later years, says one of Britain’s top researchers. They should be offered the check-ups regularly from the age of 40, says Professor Bart De Strooper, in just the same way as we are currently invited for an ‘NHS Health Check’, which focuses on cardiovascular fitness. The brain check would combine a mental quiz and a blood test that looks both for biomarkers that betray the very earliest signs of brain degradation, and genes that predispose us to dementia. That would enable doctors to spot people at high risk of developing dementia before the vast majority of the damage has been done, Prof De Strooper told The Mail on Sunday. They could then be given new treatments, which are most likely to work best very early in the course of disease to stop the development of full-blown dementia, he said.

    British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and U.S. President Joe Biden react during the "Accelerating Clean Technology Innovation and Deployment" session during the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland, Britain November 2, 2021.Jeff J Mitchell | Reuters GLASGOW, Scotland — Climate campaigners and environmental activists have sharply criticized the organization of the COP26 climate summit, describing U.N.-brokered talks as the most exclusionary they have ever known. The meeting, which formally opened on Sunday, has been billed as humanity's last and best chance to prevent the worst of what the climate crisis has in store. The U.K. is presiding over the talks in Glasgow, Scotland through to Nov. 12. Logistical difficulties, the exclusion of people with disabilities and a lack of attendees from the Global South are just some of the criticisms leveled at the event organizers. The COP26 presidency was not immediately available to comment when contacted by CNBC on Friday. "I'd like to be polite," Asad Rehman, a spokesperson for the COP26 coalition, told CNBC Tuesday when asked about his experience of COP26 so far. "But it will...

    China is suffering its most widespread Covid-19 outbreak since the virus first emerged at the beginning of the pandemic in Wuhan in 2019.  The country's new locally transmitted Covid cases have spiked to a near three-month high amid what the Chinese government called a 'serious' new outbreak of the highly infectious Delta variant. Now, more than 600 locally-transmitted cases have been found in 19 of the country's 31 provinces, reports Bloomberg.  The National Health Commission confirmed on Wednesday 93 new local symptomatic cases for Tuesday, up from 54 a day earlier and the highest daily count since August 9 at the peak of China's last major outbreak. Most of the local cases were found in Heihe, a city in the northern province of Heilongjiang, where 35 infections were recorded on Tuesday. Three new provinces detected cases: central Chongqing, Jiangsu and Henan, reported Bloomberg. The spread and rise in Covid infections comes despite the Chinese government enforcing tighter curbs to contain the cases.

    A POPULAR TikToker thinks she knows a WhatsApp sign that can indicate whether you're considered to be an "annoying friend". The theory is quite prevalent online and lots of people in the TikTok comment section agree. 1This TikToker thinks she knows how to tell if you're the "annoying" friendCredit: TikTok / @ natashamachucaw TikToker @natashamachucaw, who is often creating funny videos, posted her WhatsApp theory in a TikTok video which sees her dancing underneath a message. The message states: "Every groupchat has a smaller groupchat without the annoying people. "If you disagree I have bad news for you..." The theory implies that if you're not in a separate groupchat to chats that you have with your larger group of friends then you may be the one being left out.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont reportedly asked his Democratic colleagues a pointed question on the floor of the U.S. Senate on Tuesday: "So we drop what's most popular?" Sanders was referring to a proposal to add dental and vision benefits to Medicare coverage, a plan that U.S. voters identified as their top priority for Democrats' emerging reconciliation package, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll released Tuesday. Last week, however, the Biden administration released an updated reconciliation framework that excluded dental and vision for Medicare recipients as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), dental industry groups, and large insurers objected to and lobbied against the proposed expansion. The new Build Back Better framework would still add hearing benefits to Medicare. Sanders, the leading champion of Medicare expansion in Congress, vocally criticized the administration's decision to drop the dental and vision coverage and indicated that he would continue working to include the benefits in the final reconciliation package. On Tuesday, HuffPost's Igor Bobic tweeted that he saw Sanders showing Senate Democrats the Morning Consult/Politico survey, which found that 41% of U.S. voters see adding...
    JIAOZUO, China (AP) — Wang Yuetang’s sneakers sink into the mud of what was once his thriving corn and peanut farm as he surveys the damage done by an unstable climate. Three months after torrential rains flooded much of central China’s Henan province, stretches of the country’s flat agricultural heartland are still submerged in several inches of water. It’s one of the many calamities around the world that are giving urgency to the U.N. climate summit underway in Glasgow, Scotland. ”There is nothing this year. It’s all gone,” Wang said. “Farmers on the lowland basically have no harvest, nothing.” He lost his summer crop to floods, and in late October the ground was still too wet to plant the next season’s crop, winter wheat. On other nearby farms, shriveled beanstalks and rotted cabbage heads bob in the dank water, buzzing with flies. Some of the corn ears can be salvaged, but because the husks are moldy, they can be sold only as animal feed, bringing lower prices. The flooding disaster is the worst that farmers in Henan...
    Despite recent unfavorable media coverage and intensifying Congressional scrutiny, social media interactions with news stories about Facebook declined over the course of 2021, according to data from NewsWhip reported by Axios. The most popular news stories about Facebook since March 2021 each involved former President Donald Trump, Axios reported. The Facebook Oversight Board’s decision to uphold Trump’s ban from the platform in May, for instance, coincided with the largest spike in social media engagement with Facebook-centered news stories. Later, the former president’s July lawsuit against Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg produced the second-highest jump in engagement. Meanwhile, stories surrounding internal company documents leaked by former Facebook employee Frances Haugen did not produce a significant increase in social media interactions, the outlet reported.

    “Hello, human diary! This is Mitt Romney, your better.” Nine years ago, in what feels like a much simpler time, The Chronicles of Mitt satirized Romney and his presidential campaign. These 120 treasured stories have become part of the Daily Kos canon and a benchmark for sly humor from the writer who recently motivated Community member Gaelsdottir to exclaim, “Dammit Hunter, I laughed so hard I almost fell off my chair, and it’s been a LONG, LONG TIME since I laughed that hard. Why are there no Pulitzers for making people laugh until they cry while reading the regular news!” In the first edition, Hunter set the tone with his insipid characterization. “My adviser units have advocated that I begin writing a diary of my experiences during this election. They believe the exercise will encourage the development of human-like emotions, which according to focus groups are a desirable quality.” The fan-favorite feature of the Chronicles, still praised nostalgically nine years later, kicked off with Hunter reporting Mitt’s “Every Town Counts” bus tour. Let’s look back to Romney’s 2012 election campaign...
