    It is an occasion intended to demonstrate family unity and the Queen's position as Supreme Governor of the Church of England, but Prince William reveals that the Christmas Day church service at Sandringham has not always been as sober as the public might imagine. Beginning his walk at the 16th Century building, he says: 'So we're right outside St Mary Magdalene Church. The flag's up and I'm right beside the door we normally go in as a family. 'And what's very good about it is that we sit opposite each other as a family and, growing up, having my cousins sat opposite me has always been quite difficult to keep a straight face at times. Prince William revealed he has gotten the giggles 'many times' during the Sandringham Christmas Day church service.

    Having a recent tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis can skyrocket a person's likelihood of dying from COVID-19, a new study finds. Researchers from the California Department of Health gathered statewide data to identify how much of an increased risk of death TB patients suffered during the pandemic. They found a person who was diagnosed with both TB and Covid within 30 days was 20 times as likely to die than someone who only had the virus, and twice as likely to die when compared to someone diagnosed with TB before the pandemic. The findings show the high risk people with TB - a condition that can severely damage a person's lungs - face during the pandemic. Researchers found a direct correlation between how recent a TB diagnosis is and the likelihood of dying of Covid. A person diagnosed with TB within 30 days of Covid infection are 20 times as likely to die than the average person, and twice as likely to die as someone infected with TB before the pandemic TB is a potentially devastating bacterial infection that can cause permanent...
    A hypersonic weapon test carried out by China in July featured a missile fired at five times the speed of sound - a technological feat which no other country has demonstrated, according to US intelligence.   The hypersonic glide vehicle - a spacecraft with the ability to carry a nuclear warhead - fired a missile mid-flight over the South China Sea, catching Pentagon scientists unawares. Experts at Darpa - the Pentagon's advanced research agency - are apparently still baffled at how China was able to defy the constraints of physics to fire a weapon from the vehicle travelling at hypersonic speed, the Financial Times reports. Analysts are also attempting to piece together the purpose of the missile, which was fired with no obvious target before landing into the sea.  China is thought to have carried out two tests of a hypersonic orbital nuke - the first on July 27 and the second on August 13 this year Both Russia and the US have explored hypersonic weapons in recent years, but experts say China's firing of countermeasures is proof that Beijing's technology...
    Heat stress — a potentially fatal mix of warmth and humidity — will afflict fifteen times more people should global temperature rise exceed the 3.6°F (2°C) threshold.  At present, some 68 million people worldwide are affected by heat stress, but the shift would see this rise to around one billion, or one-in-every eight people. A 7.2°F (4°C) overall increase, meanwhile, would see half of the world's population living in areas that are at risk, a study from the UK Met Office has today warned.  The findings come in a series of maps that explore which regions would be affected by five different climate effects under both 3.6°F (2°C) and 7.2°F (4°C) of warming.  Based on data from an international team led by the University of Exeter, the maps also explore the impacts of drought, river flooding and wildfire risk. The Met Office's analysis looking specifically at where the more severe impacts might overlap with each other and areas today most vulnerable to food insecurity. The experts found that areas in the tropics will be the worst affected — with impacts from four or more...
    A California casino was fined $500,000 and is undergoing enhanced review after staff failed to alert authorities when a high-roller brought $100million in cash to use on games of baccarat. The high-roller, described only as a Chinese national, visited the Bicycle Hotel & Casino in Los Angeles County approximately 100 times over an eight-month period in 2016. Federal prosecutors say the gambler would play high-limit baccarat in a VIP room with large sums of cash that he would transport to and from the casino in duffle bags. The man would then have his assistant conduct cash-in or cash-out transactions on his behalf, totaling an estimated value of over $100million. Officials say the casino failed to file suspicious activity reports durning the alleged gambling incidents and improperly filed currency transaction reports in the name of the assistant instead of the high-roller. Hotel staff alerted management of the compliance failures in late July 2016, prompting the establishment to amend currency transaction reports to include the high-roller's name and regularly file reports questioning the 'suspicious nature of his source of funds'.  On Friday, federal prosecutors entered...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Meghan McCain says she decided to leave “The View” following her second day back from maternity leave in January when frequent foil Joy Behar said “I did not miss you” during a political argument. McCain, who left this summer after four years as the daytime talk show’s conservative voice, told that and other backstage stories in a new book, “Bad Republican,” and subsequent interview with Variety. McCain had announced on July 1 that she was leaving “The View” because she did not want to be uprooted from her Washington life with her husband, commentator Ben Domenech, and daughter Liberty when the show returned to its New York studio. She was more forthcoming in her book. “I had been unhappy at ‘The View’ for a long time,” she wrote. “My unhappiness was like this giant wave that had been building and building and finally crested after I returned from leave.” The outspoken McCain had been the show’s lightning rod since joining, and also helped “The View” reach a new level of popularity and influence.

    Former New York Times journalist Bari Weiss confronted CNN’s Brian Stelter about his network’s coverage of the COVID-19 lab leak theory when listing examples of why the world has gone mad during Sunday’s edition of "Reliable Sources."  Weiss has written that many Americans "feel the world has gone mad," so the left-wing CNN host asked her what she meant by that comment.  Brian Stelter was confronted by ex-New York Times journalist Bari Weiss over CNN’s coverage.  (CNN/FOX) "Where can I start?

    (CNN)Black Americans are incarcerated in state prisons at nearly five times the rate of White Americans, according to a new report by The Sentencing Project.The report found that one in 81 Black adults per 100,000 people in the United States is serving time in a state prison, using data and projections from recent years from the US Census, the US Bureau of Justice Statistics and information provided directly from some states."Truly meaningful reforms to the criminal justice system cannot be accomplished without acknowledgement of its racist underpinnings," Ashley Nellis, a senior research analyst for The Sentencing Project, wrote in the report. "Immediate and focused attention on the causes and consequences of racial disparities is required in order to eliminate them."The report released on Wednesday, found "staggering disproportionalities" among the rates of incarceration of Blacks and Latinx people compared to Whites.

And Latinx individuals are incarcerated in state prisons at a rate that is 1.3 times the incarceration rate of Whites, according to the report.The Sentencing Project found that...
    Babies born during the COVID-19 pandemic were more likely to have shorter hospital stays, but there was no change in the risk of readmission, a new study suggests. Researchers from the Children Hospital's of Philadelphia found that 28.5 percent of all newborns had short hospitals stays pre-pandemic compared to 43 percent during the pandemic. However, the share of infant rehospitalizations within a week of being discharged did not increase last year. The team says the findings show say that despite the change in hospital policies, it did not seem to worsen outcomes for babies.  A new study finds 43% of babies born during the pandemic had short hospital stays compared to 28.5% of babies born pre-pandemic (file image) Prior to the pandemic, it was not uncommon for babies to remain in the hospital for a week before being discharged.

    Horrifying surveillance video shows the moment when a woman pushed a fellow commuter into a train at the Times Square subway station on Monday morning.  The victim, a 42-year-old woman, was shoved from the platform and into the train as it approached the station in what is believed to be an unprovoked attack. The woman was taken to a nearby hospital in stable condition after sustaining facial injuries during the attack.

    It was billed by the Los Angeles Times as an “unprecedented” endeavor. The “Black L.A.: Looking at Diversity” project would be a window into the lives of ordinary Black folks, who were neither criminals nor celebrities. The series would be reported and written entirely by the newspaper’s small contingent of Black journalists. The year was 1982 and, like most of my Black newsroom colleagues, I was still wounded and fuming over an incendiary front-page series The Times had run the year before titled “Marauders from inner city prey on L.A.’s suburbs,” depicting young Black men as “savage” inner-city “marauders” preying on the city’s wealthy white suburbs. That project was produced with no Black input; reported, written and hyped by white colleagues who seemed oblivious to its promotion of vile stereotypes. So if our Black series was “unprecedented,” that’s only because distorted coverage like that had been the norm. California The Times’ 1982 series ‘Black L.A.: Looking at diversity’ In the summer of 1982, The Times published a series on Southern California’s Black community called “Black L.A.: Looking at...

"Many of them are world-class journalists and experienced professionals to whom we owe tremendous gratitude and who are wonderful colleagues.

The company had also allegedly vastly inflated its monthly unique visitors, a metric used by media companies to attract advertisers. On Wednesday, This...
    California has always had a fire problem; now that problem is a constant crisis. Among California’s solutions is a nearly invisible workforce of inmate firefighters. Depending on the year, inmates make up as much as 30% of California’s wildland fire crews, says author Jaime Lowe. In her new book, “Breathing Fire,” Lowe takes readers to the front lines of California’s wildfires through the experiences of the women inmates who volunteer for intense fire training and risk their lives to save a state in peril. Lowe joins the L.A. Times Book Club at 6 p.m. PT today for a conversation with Times columnist Erika D. Smith. You can watch the free, live-streaming event on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. Sign up on Eventbrite. Please share your questions in advance on Twitter @latimesbooks or by email to bookclub@latimes.com.

Jones, serving a three-year sentence for violating probation after a...

    Sea levels around the world are rising at an 'alarming rate' of 0.12 inches per year, according to a new European Commission-backed report. This is the fifth Ocean State Report published by the Copernicus Marine Service, using a combination of satellite observations, measurements at different ocean locations around the world, and a series of computer models. The report reveals ways in which the ocean is changing and the consequences of those changes, including rising sea levels, ocean warming, and sea ice loss.  They found that warming oceans and melting land ice had caused sea levels to rise by 0.12 inches (3.1mm) per year - higher than observed any time in the last century.  The report revealed that Arctic sea ice extent is decreasing, finding that from 1979 to 2020, it lost sea ice equivalent in area to about six times the size of Germany. Dr Alex Arnall, environmental researcher at the University of Reading, not involved in the report, said level rises are no longer a 'future problem' and are already causing problems for coastal communities around the world, including the UK. ...
    The coronavirus is evolving to become better at spreading through the air, scientists say.  People infected with the Alpha variant, which triggered Britain's devastating second wave in January, expel up to 100 times more of the virus into the air than those who caught the original Wuhan strain.  That is according to researchers from the University of Maryland, who say Delta likely transmits even easier through the air.  Lead author Dr Don Milton said the findings indicate variants 'just keep getting better at travelling through the air'.  The study, which was based on monitoring the air that infected volunteers exhaled into a machine, also claimed cloth and surgical masks can halve the amount of virus that an infected person exhales.  Participants in the study breathed into a machine called a Gesundheit-II - for 30 minutes without wearing a mask and 30 minutes while wearing a mask to determine how face coverings impact the spread of the virus The experts focused on the Alpha strain – which emerged in Kent last autumn and became dominant in the UK by January...

    In 2020, heart inflammation cases at U.S. hospitals rose 43 percent - with over 40 percent of cases occurring among COVID-19 patients - according to new data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Patients admitted with Covid were 16 times more likely to experience heart inflammation than those admitted with other conditions. Older men and teenage boys were the most likely to face the condition.  Covid patients under age 16 had a 0.13 percent chance of experiencing heart inflammation, compared to a chance under 0.1 percent for adults ages 16 to 39. The CDC's data suggests that heart inflammation is much more common as a repercussion of Covid itself than as a side effect of the vaccine.  Covid patients are more likely to experience heart inflammation than patients for other conditions - or recipients of Covid vaccines - according to new CDC data.
