    Carrier aircraft VMS Eve takes off from Spaceport America in New Mexico, carrying spacecraft VSS Unity on July 11, 2021.Virgin Galactic Virgin Galactic is delaying the beginning of its commercial space tourism service to fourth quarter 2022, with the company on Thursday announcing a reorganization of its development and test flight schedule. The space tourism company will this month begin work refurbishing and improving its spacecraft and carrier aircraft. Virgin Galactic had planned to begin the eight-month "enhancement" period after the next spaceflight, called Unity 23. But the company said a recent test "flagged a possible reduction in the strength margins of certain materials used to modify specific joints" in its vehicles that will require "further physical inspection." With the work on Virgin Galactic's spacecraft VSS Unity and carrier aircraft VMS Eve beginning this month, the process makes mid-2022 the earliest that the Unity 23 may fly. "The re-sequencing of our enhancement period and the Unity 23 flight underscores our safety-first procedures, provides the most efficient path to commercial service, and is the right approach for our business and our...
    Deaths from drug overdoses in the United States reached an all-time high over the course of a 12-month period at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, according to federal data. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a report Wednesday, with provisional data showing that over the course of a 12-month period ending in March 2021, the number of deaths from drug overdoses reached a high of 96,779. This rise in drug-related deaths marks a roughly 30% jump over a year that occurred at the height of the pandemic amid lockdowns, Axios reported . Though the majority of the states experienced a rise in deaths from drug overdoses, South Dakota, New Jersey, and New Hampshire recorded a drop in deaths during the 12 months, according to the data.

The numbers released Wednesday are provisional data, as drug overdose deaths require "lengthy investigation" to be recorded, according to the CDC.

    MEXICO CITY There will be an extraordinary period next week, in order to address the proposal to extend, 30 more days, the deadline for the entry into force of various provisions of the reform on subcontracting, reported Senator Ricardo Monreal. At a press conference, the leader of the Morena senators said that, if the majority of the Permanent Commission decides, in that same period of extraordinary sessions the appointments that the Senate has pending could also be discussed. To an express question about the extraordinary period to deal with the cases of lawlessness of the deputies Saúl Huerta, accused of sexual abuse of minors, and Mauricio Toledo, accused of illicit enrichment, he stated that it will be the Permanent Commission who will define the issues that are will board.

Ricardo Monreal specified that his proposal to postpone the entry into force of various provisions contained in the decree on outsourcing, intends to allow individuals...
    Jewish people saw “the most intense period of anti-Jewish hate” in the UK in recent years, most of which involved language, behaviour, or imagery linked to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian terror group Hamas. The British Jewish charity, the Community Security Trust (CST), which has been recording antisemitic incidents since 1984, released a report on Thursday exposing what it described as the “unprecedented wave of antisemitism” between May 8th and June 7th, during and after the conflict in the Middle East. Entitled The Month of Hate, the CST revealed during this time, it recorded 628 antisemitic hate incidents, the highest the charity had ever recorded in a month-long period, and four times the number of incidents to be expected for the period. In one incident a Jewish woman was driving in Hendon, north west London with her 4y.o. son when two cars with large Palestinian flags chased her down the road and rammed into the back of her car. Thankfully she was able to evade them. — CST (@CST_UK) July 15, 2021 “This was the most intense period...

    The Charging Bull or Wall Street Bull is pictured in the Manhattan borough of New New York, January 16, 2019.Carlo Allegri | Reuters The "sell in May, then go away" strategy isn't getting much love on Wall Street this year. Market pros acknowledge that history clearly shows the market's strongest six-month period is November to April, but they also say that's not necessarily a factor that should shape investors' plans in any year. "Any investment strategy that you can summarize in a rhyme is probably a bad strategy," said Jonathan Golub, chief U.S. equity strategist at Credit Suisse. Golub raised his S&P 500 target on Friday to 4,600 for year end from 4,300, based on strong earnings. He said on average the market's performance does follow the pattern of weakness between May and October, but it's not a reason to get out of stocks. "This would be perfectly reasonable if every single May looked the same as the May the year before," Golub said. Just comparing this year to last year shows a huge contrast.

    SAN JOSE — At the conclusion of their busiest month as a team in nine years, the Sharks looked like a re-energized and motivated group Wednesday night at SAP Center. The Sharks got second-period goals from forwards Rudolfs Balcers and Ryan Donato and another solid performance from goalie Martin Jones to beat the Minnesota Wild 4-2 and sweep the two-game series.

The Sharks play the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center on Friday and Saturday. Brent Burns assisted on both...
    How it all began 11 years ago. The first thing newly minted Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra did in his job was to mark Tuesday's 11th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act by extending the pandemic enrollment deadline for ACA plans by another three months, until August 15 for the 36 states using Healthcare.gov. (The other 15 states are determining their own deadlines.) "Through this Special Enrollment Period, the Biden Administration is giving the American people the chance they need to find an affordable health care plan that works for them," Becerra said in a statement. "The American Rescue Plan will bring costs down for millions of Americans, and I encourage consumers to visit HealthCare.gov and sign up for a plan before August 15." It gets better. Thanks to the American Rescue Plan, the COVID-19 relief bill signed into law this month, those signing up for individual coverage through the marketplace will see substantially reduced premiums. "As a result of the American Rescue Plan, additional savings will be available for consumers through HealthCare.gov starting April 1," HHS...

An espresso-lover who suffered from severe cramps during menstruation revealed her doctor told her to stop drinking coffee in the lead-up to her period - and it changed her life.

    Northern Ireland Brussels appears poised to reject the UK’s calls for a two-year extension of the grace periods for post-Brexit trade in Northern Ireland. Multiple Whitehall and EU sources have told The Telegraph that the European Commission is likely to agree to only a three to six month extension of the arrangements in place for traders moving goods between Britain and the province. Ahead of a crunch meeting in London on Thursday, EU figures also accused the UK of exploiting an international backlash against Brussels over its aborted move to erect a hard vaccine border on the island of Ireland. While the UK argues the controversy has highlighted the need for urgent solutions to the problems being experienced in Northern Ireland, EU diplomats claimed the issue was being used to try and force through a renegotiation of the agreement. The mooted extension falls far short of Mr Gove’s request for the EU to agree to extend measures in place to reduce red tape on supermarket goods, chilled meats, parcels and medicines until January 2023. It has also reignited calls...
    bymuratdeniz | E+ | Getty Images With all of Medicare's different rules for enrolling, it's not unheard of to miss your signup deadline. Now is the time to remedy that. During a general enrollment period that opened Jan. 1 and closes March 31, anyone who did not enroll when they should have (as defined by the government) can do so. The downside is that coverage won't start until July. And, you may face a late-enrollment penalty. This opportunity for late enrollment is separate from a concurrent three-month window for beneficiaries who want to drop their Medicare Advantage Plan or switch to another.VIDEO4:2904:29Retiring early: How much health insurance will costInvest in You: Ready.

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Managers of New Mexico's health insurance exchange have scheduled a special open enrollment period from Feb. 15 through May 15 in response to a federal mandate from President Joe Biden. Nearly 43,000 residents of New Mexico rely on the marketplace for health insurance, with the promise of federal subsidies for consumers with low and moderate incomes who make too much to qualify for Medicaid. State health exchange CEO Jeffery Bustamante said Thursday that the new open enrollment period provides a unique and streamlined opportunity for people to purchase health insurance amid the pandemic. Coverage is available to people who don’t have job-based health insurance. Open enrollment typically takes place only in November and December at the insurance exchange known as beWellnm. There are five insurance carriers that offer coverage in every county in the state. State legislators are considering a proposal to expand subsidies to the state’s health insurance exchange through a state surtax on insurance premiums. Those proposed subsidies would not take effect until 2023. New Mexico residents have flocked to Medicaid health care,...
    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota’s state-run health insurance exchange said Wednesday it will open a three-month special enrollment period to help uninsured and other Minnesotans obtain coverage. MNsure said the open enrollment will begin Feb. 16 and run through May 17. The announcement follows a nationwide special enrollment period ordered by President Joe Biden last week for states that participate in the federal exchange. “COVID-19 is still with us, so having access to comprehensive health care coverage is critical at this time,” MNsure CEO Nate Clark said in a statement. MNsure ran a similar special enrollment period for uninsured Minnesotans last March just after the start of the pandemic and enrolled nearly 10,000 Minnesotans into private coverage. Additionally, MNsure’s annual open enrollment period, which ended Dec. 22, saw increased enrollments. The exchange said Minnesotans currently enrolled in health insurance coverage outside of MNsure should confirm their coverage options through MNsure before making changes to their current coverage. The state-run exchange is the only place where Minnesotans can apply for public subsidies to lower their premiums and out-of-pocket costs. (©...

    Two days into the new year, Los Angeles County’s battle with the relentless post-holiday coronavirus surge appeared destined to intensify as health officials reported 138 more deaths linked to the disease, which has now infected more than 800,000 people in the region. The county’s death toll climbed to 10,682 on Saturday, Dec. 2, continuing to outpace resources at local funeral homes and morgues, officials said. Longtime broadcaster Larry King, 87, is among the 806,210 people who have been infected with the disease, officials said Saturday. The 87-year-old former CNN host is hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, according to reports. Such cases have doubled in just over a month — the fastest rise of new infections throughout the pandemic’s 10-month siege. The county’s daily report did not include updated numbers for Long Beach and Pasadena, which operate their own health departments. Pasadena reported 72 new cases for a total of 6951, but its death toll remained at 167. As of Thursday, Long Beach reported 401 deaths and 33,271 cases; the city didn’t issue new numbers on Friday and Saturday. Once again,...
    The United States recorded over 81,000 drug overdose deaths in a 12-month stretch, the worst year-long total reported in American history. The U.S. has long been struggling to combat the opioid epidemic, but experts say that the total between May 2019 and May 2020, published in a CDC report last week, can be at least partially attributed to the coronavirus pandemic. Specifically, experts attribute the total to the pandemic’s disruption of in-person treatment and recovery when it began to spread nationwide in March. Americans who suffered from drug use were also increasingly likely to use drugs alone once they entered quarantine and were kept away from others, upping the risk that an overdose would prove fatal since nobody was available to contact already-burdened emergency services, the CDC report outlines.

At the end of October, the British government had been planning to end the Job Retention Scheme, which saw it pay the majority of the salaries of people who had become idle due to the coronavirus pandemic but were kept on payroll by firms. That program was eventually extended until the spring after the government announced a second national lockdown for England during November as infection numbers spiked. Those eligible for support will get 80% of their salaries paid for by the government. “The labour market continued to deteriorate as infections grew — and restrictions increased — in the run-up to the second lockdown,” said Nye Cominetti, senior Economist at the Resolution Foundation think tank. “Hospitality continues to...

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The number of traffic collisions in Los Angeles is down nearly 42% in the first nine months of this year, according to a report released Friday. Between January and the end of September, the city recorded 24,541 collisions, a steep drop from the 42,279 accidents during the same time last year, according to Los Angeles Police Department data analyzed by Crosstown. The decline began in March, the month that Mayor Eric Garcetti ordered all nonessential businesses to close, leading to more people staying home due to the coronavirus pandemic, Crosstown reported. In March, there were 2,917 collisions, a 41% drop from the same month a year ago. The difference is most stark between April and July, when far fewer people were driving to work or to run errands. This year, the LAPD recorded between 1,723 and 2,159 collisions each month. The 2019 figures were all at least twice as high, bouncing between 4,487 and 4,858. As traffic began to start again, the number of collisions in August climbed to 2,983, a boost of more than 800...

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Republican Kimberly Klacik isn’t just criticizing her opponent, Rep. Kweisi Mfume, in a Maryland congressional race in a heavily Democratic district: She’s blaming Democrats for more than five decades of difficulties in Baltimore and other cities that have been troubled by high levels of crime and poverty while led by Democrats. Klacik drew President Donald Trump’s attention in August with an ad on Twitter, which shows her walking by a blighted section of Baltimore criticizing Democrats for hurting Maryland’s largest city. The result: a coveted speaking role at the Republican National Convention. A still image from a campaign ad for congressional candidate Kimberly Klacik in August 2020. “The Trump family saw it. They loved it,” she said in an interview. “I run into people all the time who say, ‘What you said was spot on.’” Her ads and the president’s support have generated more than just buzz. Klacik now holds a huge fundraising advantage over the former NAACP leader. She raised nearly $6.5 million from July 1 to Sept. 30, and she has about $3.6 million...
    Last month, the Denver Film Festival announced that its 43rd edition would unspool virtually as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. But now, there are a trio of exceptions. During the October 22 to November 8 event, DFF will screen three high-profile flicks using a drive-in format at Red Rocks that was pioneered over the summer for the 2020 Film on the Rocks program. The flicks include Nomadland, starring Frances McDormand, the Winston Duke-Zazie Beetz vehicle Nine Days, and Ammonite, a period romance headlined by Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan. Denver Film Festival director Britta Erickson says the idea of including in-person screenings as part of this year's offerings was cemented by the success of the Film on the Rocks experiment. "There's no beating the environment of Red Rocks and the way we had such a huge screen up there with our LED system," she allows. "They were pretty evenings."Related Stories Denver Film Festival Closes Out on a Winning Note Previewing the Denver Film Festival's Biggest Opening Night Ever Inside the Denver Film Festival's Salute to the Late Brit Withey Marijuana...
    The next full moon, the harvest moon, will shine on Thursday night, Oct. 1, reaching peak light at 5:05 p.m. Unlike other moon names, the harvest moon is not associated with a specific month. It usually occurs in September, but may occur in October as much as this year. This is the lunar eclipse closest to the fall equinox on September 22 this year. It is called the harvest moon because on many evenings the moon rises soon after sunset, blowing bright moonlight across the land in the early morning, which has traditionally helped farmers to harvest. Supermoons, blue moons, lunar eclipses and many more reasons to see the sky in 2020 The harvest moon is the first of two full moons in October, the second Halloween, Oct., 31, a blue moon. “A blue moon is a rare phenomenon that involves the appearance of additional moons within a certain period of time.” Space.com. “But what period?

    HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Democratic Lt. Gov. Mike Cooney again received more donations than Republican U.S. Rep. Greg Gianforte in the most recent campaign reporting period in the race for Montana governor. However, Gianforte has outraised Cooney $3.3 million to $2.5 million overall. Gianforte has also loaned his campaign just over $3.5 million, including $1 million during the most recent reporting period. The governor’s seat is open because Gov. Steve Bullock cannot seek re-election due to term limits. Bullock, a Democrat, is looking to unseat Republican U.S. Sen. Steve Daines. Cooney reported raising $678,000 from Aug. 16 through Sept. 15. Gianforte raised $334,000 during the same period. With six weeks until Election Day, Cooney has about $450,000 remaining while Gianforte has just under $400,000. Millions of dollars in outside money are also being spent on ads for and against the candidates in the governor's race. During the last reporting period, which covered two months ending August 15, Gianforte reported raising $582,000 from donors and Cooney reported raising $725,000. Copyright 2020 The Associated Press.

    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) — Smoking is gaining popularity among Florida’s medical marijuana patients. Physicians wrote nearly 1.4 million orders certifying medical marijuana for 232,586 people between Oct. 1, 2019 and March 30, 2020 a new report released by the state shows. Members of two of the state’s medical licensing boards were set to discuss the data during a Zoom conference call on Aug. 27. But officials shut down the meeting in less than five minutes, after a hacker interrupted the call. The boards will produce a final version of the report with data ranging from Oct. 1, 2019 through Sept. 30, 2020 before the end of the year. The six-month report released in August provides members of the Board of Medicine and Board of Osteopathic Medicine a snapshot of the state’s medical marijuana market, along with physicians’— and patients’— behaviors. During the six-month period ending March 31, 2,604 physicians were qualified to authorize qualified patients to receive medical marijuana. To qualify, a physician must take education courses about medical marijuana. Qualified patients are Florida residents with a qualified patient-identification card...

    Lockdown-free Sweden has recorded its highest death toll in a six-month period for 150 years - with 4,500 of its 51,405 fatalities being Covid-19 related.  Its the highest tally from January to the end of June since 1869 when 55,431 people died, largely because of a famine. The population of Sweden then was just 4.1million, compared to 10.3million today. It should also be noted that Sweden remained neutral during the two world wars, whereas most European countries were experiencing the equivalent of a six-month coronavirus death toll in the course of a single battle 75 years ago.  Nevertheless, coronavirus means Sweden's deaths are around 10 percent higher than the average over the last five years, the country's statistics office said on Wednesday.   People enjoy boat rides, canoe paddling and stand up paddle in the nearly 30 degrees Celsius summer weather at the Palsund canal in Stockholm, Sweden. The country has been unique for its liberal approach to the virus, avoiding locking the country down  In April the number of deaths was almost 40 percent higher...
    President Trump has taken 555 more questions from reporters than presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden since mid-July as pressure mounts for the former vice president to face the media, according to a new study. Biden has been criticized for weeks for declining to sit down with reporters for unscripted interviews, with everyone from far-left CNN pundits to “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace questioning his decision to avoid the press. The campaign’s decision to largely skip Sunday morning political programs on the eve of the Democratic National Convention has drawn more attention to the strategy -- and the Washington Examiner reviewed coverage to determine how much more accessible Trump is than Biden. BIDEN TALKS TO CARDI B AS PRESSURE MOUNTS TO FACE TOUGH QUESTIONS FROM REPORTERS “A review of interviews, transcripts, and videos shows that since mid-July, Trump has taken 635 questions from the media and Biden just 80, an 8-1 divide,” Washington Examiner columnist Paul Bedard wrote Monday in a piece headlined, “Clammed up: Trump takes 700% more questions than Biden in one month.” “During a 28-day stretch from July 19 to Aug. 15, Trump took questions on 24 days,...
