    Celebrate the Holidays Safely with Family and Friends Follow COVID-19 and Flu Prevention Measures   Atlanta – The COVID vaccine has helped make celebrating upcoming holidays together with family and friends possible again. To keep yourself and your loved ones safe, the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) urges all Georgians to plan ahead and take steps to reduce risk of exposure to COVID-19 and the flu as they celebrate.   The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommend several ways to enjoy holiday traditions while protecting your health.   The best protection against COVID and the flu is vaccination, and the vaccines can be administered at the same time. People are considered fully vaccinated for COVID two weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, or two weeks after the single-dose J&J COVID-19 vaccine. Likewise, it takes about two weeks after getting a flu vaccine for antibodies that protect against flu to develop in the body. For young children who aren’t yet eligible...

    Dr Anthony Fauci says that fully vaccinated Americans should be comfortable gathering for the holidays this year.  Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, believes it is safe for people to meet with family and friends this holiday season if they have completed their vaccination series. Last year, many Americans skipped out on traveling to see family for Thanksgiving and Christmas but, with safe and effective Covid vaccines now available, gatherings with loved ones are set to return. In 2020, the holiday season was followed by a massive Covid surge - the largest to date - and, with the weather getting colder, Fauci said he fears there could be an upcoming virus surge. Dr Anthony Fauci (pictured) said during a talk with the Bipartisan Policy Committee that it is safe for family and friends to gather for the holidays this year as long as everyone is fully vaccinated 'If you get vaccinated and your family's vaccinated, you can feel good about enjoying a typical Thanksgiving [and] Christmas with your family and close friends,' Fauci...

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: A dear friend of mine is an older woman who is very wealthy, generous and politically active. She invited four women to a fundraising dinner for a political candidate, for which we each paid $250. This was a big stretch for me, but I cared immensely about the cause and was thrilled at the chance to see this female politician speak in person. However, it soon came out that the entire event was a scam, set up by a fraudster who took all the ticket money and had no connection to the politician. It was all over our local news. My friend refunded each of us our $250 for the tickets. As I did follow this in the news, I know that the money was never recouped from the fraudster, so I believe my friend personally refunded us. I was so appreciative of this, and told her so. Related Articles Miss Manners: I can’t even stand to be around these work-from-home people Miss Manners: I asked them to do my sick wife’s chores,...

    COLLIER TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) — Louis Vignone was a popular figure in the Sheraden neighborhood for many years.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued guidance Friday for holiday celebrations, including on how to optimize air flow during indoor gatherings with people from outside the same household. Some “safer” ways to celebrate holidays, according to the CDC, include hosting a video chat party with friends and family, having an outdoor celebration with everyone at least six feet apart or taking food or gifts to family, friends and neighbors without actually having contact with them. The agency also recommended that, if celebrating indoors, Americans bring in fresh air by opening windows and doors and using a window fan to pull in fresh air. Other recommendations include driving or walking around the community to wave to neighbors from a safe distance, throwing a virtual dance party or watching virtual events and celebrations. (RELATED: Merck Seeks Approval For Experimental COVID-19 Pill) The agency said that people who are not vaccinated should be wearing masks at indoor holiday gatherings.

But things went dramatically downhill for the Australian - physically, emotionally and financially. Philippoussis, who had his sixth knee surgery in 2009 and saw his money dry up before officially retiring in 2015, said: "I was out for a few months. I couldn’t afford much, actually. I had to ask friends just to shop for food. "We would always, just, for seven days in a row we’d have this cabbage pasta that ends up being one of my favourites but my mum calls it ‘poor people’s food’ because it’s so simple, it’s just cabbage with some spices and pasta.

    A BRIDE-TO-BE has vented online because her wedding guests refuse to pay £3k to fly to Thailand for her wedding. Raging that only nine of the 150 guests invited accepted the invitation to the wedding in Asia, the bride changed the location to Hawaii, which saw her guest list deteriorate even further. 2A bride threatens she will delete friends from Facebook if they do not pay 3k to attend her wedding. After viewing her post on Facebook, one viewer decided to share the bride's rant to Reddit, with the caption "she sounds nice." The bride said: "When we invited our friends and family to our destination wedding in Thailand, only 9 people RSVPd.

    A DEVIOUS mum who faked having terminal cancer to her family and friends while stealing £16,000 in donations has been spared jail. Megan Scotcher, 28, admitted faking terminal cancer and saying she had just months to live to dupe money from well-wishers, a court was told. 3Megan Scotcher has now been sentenced Scotcher had genuinely been struck by cancer on three previous occasions - but had been cured by chemotherapy and surgery. However, in July last year, she claimed that a hospital check-up had revealed that the cancer had returned. The mum also said she had been told by doctors that because of previous treatments, her organs had been too badly damaged for another round of chemotherapy. Shocked relatives and friends began to raise money so Scotcher could have a good quality of life in her final months with her sons, then aged eight and two. Scotcher even took part in media interviews to speak of her 'devastation'. In total, £16,426 was donated to GoFundMe websites following a series of events, including a sponsored 1,000km bike ride, a court heard....
    He added that vaccinated Americans are "placing stricter boundaries around who they choose to spend time with. ... So expect to see cancellations and rerouted plans as vaccinated Americans avoid their unvaccinated friends and family." The alienation of the unvaccinated is part of a larger trend. Another survey conducted by Harris Poll recently found that roughly one-third of vaccinated Americans "have in some way stopped socializing with friends, family members, or acquaintances because they're unvaccinated." A separate poll found that those vaccinated Americans who have ended relationships since March 2020 believe their ex-friends to be "full-blown anti-vaxxers." Furthermore, the decision by the vaccinated to avoid unvaccinated family and friends is a perplexing one given that vaccinated Americans are protected against the virus. It's true that breakthrough cases have certainly been reported, especially alongside the rise of the Delta variant. But public health experts have consistently touted the vaccine as a reliable defense against severe illness and hospitalization. Nevertheless, many vaccinated individuals still appear to be wary of contracting the virus, and so are avoiding the unvaccinated at the expense...
    In a blur of laughter and tears, a packed crowd gathered at the HaHa Comedy Club in North Hollywood to pay respects to beloved L.A.-based comics Fuquan Johnson, 43, and Enrico Colangeli, 48, who died over Labor Day weekend with their friend Natalie Williamson, 33. Sitting at tables strewn with stiff drinks and crumpled-up tissues on Wednesday night, friends and family shared stories, old voice memo recordings, forgotten footage and other remembrances of the two funnymen. But even in the midst of sadness, a bout of unintentional comic relief reared its head in a way that felt like a sketch straight out of “SNL.” After several comics came onstage to lovingly roast their fallen friends, host and comedian Jack Assadourian Jr. prepared to show a tribute video for the two comics better known as Fu and Rico — but he couldn’t get the large TV on the wall of the club to work.

    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg resisted making changes to the social network’s algorithm even though his engineers were telling him that it was promoting divisive content and damaging the public’s mental health, it has been reported. Internal documents obtained by The Wall Street Journal indicate that Facebook employees were worried that the algorithm was promoting content that made users angrier and more likely to argue about politics or race. The internal memos seen by the Journal also indicated that Facebook officials were made aware that Instagram was toxic for young girls who struggled with body image issues. Facebook was also found to have been running a secret ‘whitelist’ which shielded celebrities, politicians, and other VIPs from enforcement of its guidelines even if they spread harmful and malicious content that would get others banned. The algorithm, which was introduced in 2018 after internal data showed a decline in user engagement, gave people incentive to post negative comments that sparked a reaction and debate. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (pictured above in October 2019) resisted calls from his own data scientists to alter...
