    Elon Musk claims his Neuralink, a brain-interface technology company, is less than a year away from implanting chips into human brains. The news comes from the billionaire himself during a live-streamed interview with The Wall Street Journal CEO Council Summit on Monday, when asked about plans for the company in 2022. ‘Neuralink's working well in monkeys and we're actually doing just a lot of testing and just confirming that it's very safe and reliable and the Neuralink device can be removed safely,’ Musk said. ‘We hope to have this in our first humans — which will be people that have severe spinal cord injuries like tetraplegics, quadriplegics — next year, pending FDA approval. ‘I think we have a chance of being able to allow someone who cannot walk or use their arms be able to walk again – but not naturally.’ Scroll down for videos  Elon Musk’s Neuralink, a brain-interface technology company, claims to be less than a year away from implanting chips into human brains.

    Adolescents and young adults who experience myocarditis, a type of heart inflammation, after receiving COVID-19 vaccines typically have mild cases and recover quickly, a new study finds. Researchers at the University of Utah, Boston Children's Hospital, and other institutions evaluated health records from 139 patients under age 21 who suffered the condition following vaccination. Among these patients, fewer than one in five required intensive care, and none required external oxygen support or died.  The patients' median hospital stay was just two days. This study suggests that, while myocarditis is a serious side effect of Covid vaccines, it may be easily managed compared to the virus itself - and the benefits of Covid vaccination outweigh the risks. Still, researchers caution that future studies should look at long-term outcomes for these patients. Young adults and teenagers who experience myocarditis, a rare side effect of Covid vaccines, typically have relatively mild cases and recover quickly, a new study finds.

    At the age of 10, Tesha Christensen launched her journalistic career when her letter to the editor was published in her hometown paper. Now, more than 40 years later, Christensen has parlayed a life-long interest in community journalism into a successful business venture. The publisher of two community papers, Minneapolis’s Messenger and St. Paul’s Monitor, Christensen recently started a third paper, the Southwest Connector, to cover the South Minneapolis neighborhoods that had been served by the now defunct Southwest Journal. “I knew a potential market was waiting for me there, now that the Journal had stopped publishing. People in those neighborhoods were reaching out to me, telling me that they wanted to see a new publication in their area,” Christensen said. A former journalism instructor and a long-time newspaper freelancer, Christensen purchased her first two papers in 2019 at a time when community papers all across the country were struggling. “Tesha took ownership of the Messenger and the Monitor during a challenging time for print journalism,” noted Denis Woulfe, Christensen’s advertising manager, who served in a similar position for the...
    Carolyn Sharp is grateful that Berkeley Food Network has embarked on a dynamic quest during the COVID pandemic: end hunger in the iconic East Bay city. “The Berkeley Food Network is a main artery for this neighborhood,” said Sharp, who lives around the corner from the pantry near the corner of Ninth Street and University Avenue. “It’s a lifeline. People come here not just from Berkeley, but from Richmond and Oakland.” In February 2020, before extensive business shutdowns to combat the coronavirus, Berkeley Food Network was serving about 1,500 clients a week in its various programs. By May 2020, that number had climbed to about 5,000 people a week, said Sara Webber, the nonprofit’s executive director and co-founder. It also expanded its on-site pantry in the company’s home base on Ninth Street. “When COVID hit, most of the people who were adversely affected by the job cuts and layoffs came to our pantry,” Webber said. “That has become one of our biggest programs. We probably serve 70 families a day now at the pantry. We used to serve 30 a...
    London (CNN)Thousands of desperate Afghans were unable to flee the Taliban following the fall of Kabul because the British government's response to the crisis was disorganized and slow, a whistleblower has claimed.Britain's then-Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab took several hours to respond to urgent requests, while Prime Minister Boris Johnson insisted vital resources were used to evacuate animals instead of people, an ex-staffer at the UK's Foreign Office alleged in written testimony to Parliament published on Tuesday.His damning account paints a picture of dysfunction at the heart of Britain's government during one of the West's most urgent crises in recent times, and suggests that the department's bureaucratic complacency may have had fatal consequences.The staffer, Raphael Marshall, said the department was flooded with emails from people requesting urgent help to flee Afghanistan. At the time, crowds of people had gathered at Kabul airport, desperately seeking a route out of the country, as US troops prepared to withdraw and the Taliban took the city."Many of these emails were not read," Marshall wrote, estimating that between 75,000 and 150,000 people had requested help and...

    (CNN)As the pandemic stretches on, our collective ability to weather adversities and bounce back to emotional stability is being challenged daily. Many of us have suffered significant trauma from illness, hospitalization and death. Many more have experienced job loss, economic uncertainly and financial instability.

    (CNN)Early reports on the quick spread of the Omicron variant in South Africa were at first frightening, but then began to offer some hope. The new variant may have quickly overtaken other strains of the virus in South Africa as it enters the summer, but cases so far appear to have been overwhelmingly mild.Then came a report showing the variant carries a portion of genetic material that's very similar to segments seen in one of the types of coronaviruses that causes the common colds -- one called HCoV-229E. A few researchers said it just might indicate the variant is starting to look more like a nuisance virus than a big killer.It's a tantalizing idea. Many infectious disease experts have been predicting that the novel coronavirus, named SARS-CoV-2, would go in this direction, evolving into a milder form that joins the annual mix of seasonal respiratory viruses. South Africans brace for the worst amid Omicron surgeCould this be the variant that at least starts it down that path?It is way too soon to start thinking that, several experts told CNN....
    A man rides an electric bicycle near the pier in Huntington Beach, CA on Tuesday, April 6, 2021.Paul Bersebach | Getty Images Electric bicycles have soared in popularity in recent years, and a tax credit in Democrats' $1.75 trillion Build Back Better bill may fuel their rise even further. The version of the social safety net and climate bill that was passed by the House of Representatives offers some Americans a fully refundable, 30% tax credit on purchases of certain e-bikes. Individuals who make $75,000 or less qualify for the maximum credit of up to $900. Joint filers who make up to $150,000 can qualify for two bikes and up to a $900 tax credit on each. It phases out for taxpayers above those income levels. E-bikes with a sticker price of more than $4,000 don't qualify for the credit. The e-bike credit has multiple champions in Congress, including Rep. Jimmy Panetta, D-Calif., who earlier in the year introduced similar, standalone legislation to incentivize e-bike purchases. Because e-bikes are a low-carbon transportation option that can replace some car trips, particularly...

    COULD this tiny hut be a secret hideout for aliens on the moon? China's space agency has dubbed it the "mysterious house" after spotting the cube on the far side of the lunar surface. 2A lunar rover is now moving in to figure out what the "mysterious hut" really is Experts are now planning to make their way to the hut to see whether anything lurks inside, using their Yutu-2 lunar rover. Some think the odd box shape could be an alien crash site. But we'll have to wait two or three months before we know for sure, according to Our Space, a site linked to the China National Space Administration (CNSA). They say the weird object is roughly 80 metres away. "This object pierced through the winding of the skyline, like a 'mysterious hut' that appeared out of thin air," the site said. "There was a large 'baby' impact crater beside it. "Was it a home built by aliens after the crash landing? Or is it the pioneer spacecraft of the predecessors to explore the moon?" Most read in...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: My daughter was supposed to get married in November of 2020, and had sent out “save the date” cards in advance. When it became apparent because of the pandemic that she wouldn’t be getting married then, she sent cards asking people to save Aug. 15, 2021. But in April, she decided that the health situation was still too uncertain to get married in August, so she sent “wedding postponed” cards without any specific date. At this point, she is planning on getting married in August of 2022. Over this period, my daughter lost touch with a few of the friends to whom she had sent the initial “save the date” cards. They were friends from a job she left more than three years ago.

    Hong Kong (CNN)China has threatened the Biden administration with retaliation over its decision to impose a diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, warning the move could damage bilateral relations. The Biden administration said Monday it would not send an official United States delegation to the Beijing Winter Games as a statement against China's "ongoing genocide and crimes against humanity in Xinjiang." US athletes will still be allowed to compete in the Games.Prior to the official announcement, Beijing warned it would take "resolute countermeasures" against Washington if the diplomatic boycott went ahead."US politicians keep hyping a 'diplomatic boycott' without even being invited to the Games.

    A mother adjusts the face mask of her child as she enters the St. Lawrence Catholic School, north of Miami, on the first day of school after summer vacation on Aug. 18, 2021. by Alexandra Martinez This article was originally published at Prism The World Health Organization has designated the new COVID-19 variant, omicron, as a variant of concern, with cases already being reported in California and Minnesota, adding another risk for educators in nine states where wearing a mask in the classroom is optional. In states like Oklahoma and Utah, students or their parents can opt out of school mask mandates if they choose, and local school districts can still determine whether or not they need a mask mandate. But in Florida, Gov. Ron Desantis signed a bill that explicitly forbids school districts in the state from requiring masks in the classroom. Parents are even allowed to sue the school district, ensuring they have sole discretion over whether their children wear a mask and placing their classmates’ and educators’ well-being in their hands. In Texas, a federal appeals court just...
    The fully vaccinated Minnesota man who became one of the country's first Omicron cases said he was 'taken aback' but feeling well after learning he was infected with the feared variant after coming back from a packed NYC Anime convention in November. Peter McGinn, 30, had met up with 35 people from a friends group - 15 of whom have since tested positive - to attend the convention at the Javits Center, which drew about 53,000 people from November 20-22.   It is unknown how many in that fully vaccinated group have the Omicron variant. The group had also all gone out to a bar following the event.  McGinn, a health care analyst  from  Minneapolis, was fully vaccinated and received his first booster shot during the first week of November.  'I felt perfectly safe with the people that I was with, and so it never really crossed my mind to think that I had COVID,' McGinn told ABC.

    Bentiu, South Sudan (CNN)Many of the main roads running through Unity State are now completely submerged, yet the traffic remains. There are no cars, just people, some of whom swim, others wade, pushing their way through the heavy silt-laden water. The more fortunate glide by on canoes with their livestock and whatever possessions they could salvage from the floods. In this traffic, between the cities of Bentiu and Ding Ding, is a group of women, pushing to dislodge their makeshift raft that has become stuck in mud, weighed down by six children. The men in the family went back north to keep their cattle safe, and the women were left to push for four days in the hope of reaching higher ground. Along the way, their food ran out, said one of the women, named Nereka. Her 5-month-old baby wails as she talks. "Of course, I'm worried about my children," she said. "That's why we keep moving."

    Former President Donald Trump went after the media Monday for continuing to report that he tested positive for COVID-19 three days before the first presidential debate and six days before he announced he had the disease.  'The Fake News continues to push the false narrative that I had COVID prior to the first debate,' Trump said in a statement. 'Biden goes around coughing on people all over the place, and yet the Corrupt News doesn't even cover it.'   Last week, the Guardian obtained a copy of Trump's former chief of staff Mark Meadows' forthcoming book, where Meadows revealed Trump had tested positive for COVID-19 the day of the Amy Coney Barrett 'super-spreader' event, which had previously been kept a secret.  Biden had a cold on Friday, which he said came from his grandson Beau, with the White House saying he had been tested for COVID-19 multiple times.   The Washington Post conducted an analysis of Trump's interactions following the initial Guardian report and found that he came in contact with more than 500 people from the day he received the positive COVID test...

    Travis Scott has asked a judge to dismiss at least one civil lawsuit brought against him after 10 people were killed and hundreds injured at his chaotic Astroworld concert last month.  The Sicko Mode rapper filed legal documents Monday requesting that a suit from festival attendee Jessie Garcia filed against him and several of his businesses be dismissed with prejudice.  Scott issued a 'general denial' to all the allegations in Garcia's suit, TMZ reported. Sources close to the star say he is planning to issue a similar response to the dozens of cases, worth billions of dollars, that have been filed against him in wake of the tragedy.  The move comes just one week after a motion was filed to consolidate the suits into one 'multi-district litigation'.

    In the wake of one of the most stressful periods of modern U.S. history, thousands of Americans suffered substantial increases to their blood pressure last year. Researchers from the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio gathered blood pressure data from 464,585 employees and family members of Quest Diagnostics from the years 2018, 2019 and 2020. They found that changes in both systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP) blood pressure increased by much more in 2020 than they did on average in 2019. Average change is SBP among participants increased by 2.5 millimeters of mercury (mm HG) - the standard measurement of blood pressure - compared to an increase of around 1.1 mm HG the year before. For DBP, there was an increase of 0.53 mm HG found, compared to an increase of only 0.14 mm HG the year before.

But first, Stacey Abrams rides again, that's the focus of tonight's angle.All right, let's say you're lucky enough to be driving a newer model, let's say, a Porsche SUV with low mileage in pristine condition.

    SHIFT work can be tiring but it can also increase your risk of illness, experts have claimed. Many people work overnight, from nurses, engineers, paramedics and police officers. 1Many people work overnight shifts and experts have warned that they could be at risk of diabetesCredit: Getty Experts in Massachusetts, US, found that people who work overnight are actually at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. With type 1 diabetes, a person’s pancreas produces no insulin, but in type 2, cells in the body become resistant to insulin, so a greater amount of insulin is needed to keep blood glucose levels within a normal range. But shift workers can avoid developing type 2 diabetes if they are able to control their blood sugar levels, the experts say. They suggest that to do this, shift workers should eat only in the day time, between 7am and 7pm. During a small trial, the experts found that those who only ate between these hours had lower blood sugar levels after a meal test. The workers tested worked overnight and abstained from food during...
    PORTSMOUTH – About a year and a half ago, Happy Pot owner Cinamon Wellington began a new program in partnership with the Counseling Center (TCC). The program services folks in TCC’s recovery pipeline by giving them group art projects to work on together. “It can be pottery, canvas, wreaths, no-sew blankets, Thanksgiving Day cards – anything I think sparks some joy and they can learn a lesson from,” said Wellington. “That’s important. I want them to learn a lesson in each program that they can take back and expand upon in group therapy.” Wellington, a former employee of Job and Family Services, is a champion for folks in addiction recovery and treatment. Each week, she teaches four classes and services 40-70 individuals. “Last week, we made 18 no-sew blankets for the homeless,” explained Wellington. We are donating them to Catholic Social Services so they can give them to people in need. We also made 140 Thanksgiving cards and distributed them amongst local nursing home residents. November was our month of giving back to show people how thankful we are. And,...

    An elegance coach has revealed the aspects sophisticated women never divulge - including future plans, finances and 'controversial' opinions. Anna Bey, who splits her time between London and Geneva, explained in her most recent YouTube clip what classy ladies should avoid sharing - from repeating rumours to showing off about their good deeds.

    Former President Donald Trump came in contact with more than 500 people from the day he received a positive COVID-19 test until his hospitalization.  The Washington Post conducted an analysis of Trump's interactions following his former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows shocking revelation that the former president tested positive for COVID three days before his first debate with President Joe Biden. Because Trump tested negative the same day, the president kept his full slate of engagements, which included rallies, an event with Gold Star families, press briefings and the debate.  President Donald Trump (left) tested positive for COVID-19 three days before his first debate against now President Joe Biden (right) on September 29, Mark Meadows reveals in his forthcoming book  Despite Meadows saying that Trump knew he tested positive for COVID-19 on September 26, the president would go on to suggest that he caught the virus from Gold Star family members at an event on September 27 'Had I been there, and Dr. Conley would have told me they would have received a positive test, I would have assumed...
    After becoming accustomed to popular downtown streets being blocked off to allow restaurants and other retailers to expand their operations outdoors, cities across the Bay Area are now making some difficult decisions over where to go from here. While Pleasanton and Palo Alto recently reopened their main downtown roadways, other cities like Mountain View are looking for ways to turn their popular restaurant and commercial corridors into a permanent pedestrian mall for people to enjoy car-free for decades to come. Finding new ways to activate public spaces, such as the scattered use of parklets, has been a hot topic for years — even before the COVID-19 pandemic. But the lockdowns, which led to severely diminished vehicle traffic, allowed cities to quickly implement these initiatives. To learn more about pedestrian malls and what factors might inform city officials’ decisions on whether to keep them around for the long term, we sat down with Gary Black, an urban planner and President of Hexagon Transportation Consultants. His comments have been edited for length and clarity. Q: What do you think cities need to...

    AT THIS point, bridezillas have become a stereotype – many expect that the bride-to-be is the one making all these ridiculous demands. However, the manager of a wedding venue claimed the worst meltdown she's ever seen came from a groom. 2A general manager at a catering company revealed she watched a bride and groom almost break up because of the amount of money she was spendingCredit: Getty Taking to Reddit, where she could remain anonymous, the manager shared: "I am the general manager of a restaurant often rented for weddings and other events. "Bride has paid full balance on the event space. The package she purchased was ONLY for the space and the outside catering fee along with the other service charges…etc. She and her wedding coordinator ran through the contract with a fine-tooth comb. "Yesterday we had our final meeting prior to the wedding which is in a little than two weeks." She then claims the bride informed her that some things had changed. Forty more people had RSVPed to come to the wedding, upping the headcount...
    The past decade has seen voter suppression and partisan gerrymandering grow dramatically worse, while the Supreme Court has undercut efforts to fight back through litigation — both by striking down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act and by declaring that partisan gerrymandering is not a matter for the courts. But the courts aren't the only avenue for protecting America against democratic erosion. Congress has a key role as well — in fact, it has an urgent duty to act, according to a recent article about the U.S. Constitution's "Guarantee Clause" by Carolyn Shapiro, a professor at the Chicago-Kent College of Law. Democrats in the Senate are reluctant to act, because that would mean altering or ditching the antiquated filibuster, which has been tinkered with repeatedly before. What they haven't taken seriously, at least so far, is the constitutional obligation enshrined in the Guarantee Clause, a topic also recently addressed by New York Times columnist Jamelle Bouie: "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government." For more than a...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s becoming a familiar sight: chaos in the Loop. It happened again Saturday night with large crowds, a shooting and beatings. An officer was left with a broken arm, and police arrested more 21 young people. Dozens flooded the streets near Millennium Park in a similar sight to last summer. A Chicago Transit Authority bus driver was beaten in the road and injured. A teenager was shot in the arm when a gunman fired after the victim bumped into him. A convenience store worker was also punched in the face.

    On a recent morning, as the blanket of fog lifted into the sky, Aracelly Cauich hurried up a grassy knoll at Hollenbeck Park in Boyle Heights. She recognized a man pacing nearby with a sandal on one foot and a frayed tennis shoe on the other. She smiled and the two caught up for a minute. “I had housing,” the man told Cauich in Spanish, “but I lost it.” “I know, I know,” she said, reassuringly. “But you’re on the list.” Cauich, 49, lives a short walk from Hollenbeck Park and spends much of her free time there, often arriving with a jug of water or homemade tortas for the homeless people she has befriended in the park. She gives everyone her cellphone number and stays in touch with people who recently moved into rooms at the L.A. Grand Hotel Downtown after officials cleared out a large encampment at Hollenbeck. This fall, she hosted several events in the park where people from the community could get linked up to mental health services, and in the future she hopes to open...

    Prince Harry today claimed that people around the world 'stuck in jobs that don't bring them joy' should quit to put their mental health and happiness first. The Duke of Sussex said that 'with self-awareness comes the need for change' and that the many job resignations during the pandemic 'aren't all bad'. Harry added that the world was at the 'beginning of the mental health awakening' and people putting happiness before their job was 'something to be celebrated'. He was speaking in an interview with US business magazine Fast Company about his role as 'chief impact officer' with California-based mental health start-up BetterUp. And Harry's comments will be seen as a reference to how he and wife Meghan Markle stepped down as senior royals last year and left Britain for North America. The Duke of Sussex was unveiled in March as the chief impact officer at BetterUp with this corporate black and white photograph of him released at the same time The Duke and Duchess of Sussex leave the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey in London on March 9 last...

    BRITS have been urged to come forward for flu jabs this year in order to tackle a 'challenging winter'. But if you've still not booked yours, experts have warned you have just four days to get the jab in order to ensure protection for Christmas. 1Many Brits have already come forward for their flu vaccines and experts have urged others to get protectedCredit: Getty Flu can lead to serious complications for people living with underlying health issues. Experts at the UK's Health Security Agency (UKHSA) have said that you need to get the jab by December 10 in order to have protection on Christmas Day. More of us will be mingling this year, which makes it easier for infections and viruses to spread. If you're living with a condition such as diabetes, kidney disease, liver disease or a chronic neurological disease like multiple sclerosis or cerebral palsy, then you're more susceptible to the flu. Data shows that people with these underlying health issues and respiratory and heart conditions are 11 times more likely to die if they catch the flu,...
