    (CNN) — Health experts are doubling down on pleas for all eligible Americans to get vaccinated — and boosted — against Covid-19 as the Omicron and Delta variants spread. Less than two weeks after Omicron was first identified by South African scientists, it’s already become the dominant variant in that country and has been identified in at least 20 nations. It’s too early to tell whether Omicron is more contagious than Delta, which is still the dominant variant in the US. But the Delta variant is already fueling another increase in Covid-19 hospitalizations in some states as the weather gets colder and people spend more time indoors. Despite several unknowns about the Omicron strain, doctors say booster shots are the best weapon against Omicron, Delta and even more variants down the road. Here’s why: Boosters have worked well against other new variants Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech and Johnson & Johnson are testing the efficacy of their vaccines against the Omicron strain, and it might be two weeks before the results are known. But Dr. Anthony Fauci said there’s plenty of reason to...

    Whether you’re a chronic last-minute shopper or have had a ridiculously busy Q4, we’re all guilty of forgetting to buy a gift for graduations, anniversaries, Christmas, baby showers, and, well, the list goes on. Even if that’s not the case, it can be especially challenging to gift someone who lives far away and that you won’t be seeing in real life anytime in the foreseeable future, which is why finding last-minute gifts you can send online is frankly a game-changer. After all, having the forethought to shop for the appropriate gift for the occasion or event in question, wrap it and then send it off in time is something that can seem nearly impossible—regardless of what time of year it is. Because I too am a lifelong procrastinator (I literally wait until Christmas eve to do my gift shopping every damn year without fail) I’ve rounded up a few solid gifts you can send online—many of which arrive instantly via email. Best of all, these e-gifts, if you will, are actually thoughtful, so they won’t give away the fact that...
    Photo via Prince Midnight/InstagramHave you ever wanted to tell Lars Ulrich how you really feel about the drums on St. Anger? Do you feel some kind of monster brewing in your gut right now? A concert in Tampa will give you the chance to vent everything but your spleen on a toilet designed to look like the famed Metallica drummer. The unsettling design comes courtesy of Prince Midnight, a musician and sculptor who famously claims to have made a guitar out of his uncle's bones. While the provenance of his skeletal guitar is unclear, there's no denying the commode's resemblance to Lars (he even has little drumsticks if you're on the fence). The Lars toilet.

    AT first glance, this elephant tattoo seems quite sweet but the artwork is hiding something very X-rated. The black and white tattoo is of what appears to be a daddy elephant with an adorable baby elephant beneath its legs. 1The elephant tattoo has a rude mistakeCredit: Reddit Tropical leaves are used to decorate any of the spaces between the parent and the baby. But as you look closer, the elephant's trunk is not really a drunk but in fact drawn in the shape of a penis. The unfortunate mistake was shared on Reddit where users weighed in on the questionable image. One wrote: "Besides the penis trunk, the rest of the tattoo is pretty good" Another said: " Easy fix at least." While another user said they refused to believe the shape of the trunk was a mistake but instead, entirely "intentional".

    It's been a rough year to buy a new car and 2022 doesn't look much better. Average transaction prices hit a record above $46,000 in October due to low inventories and its going to be a while before the situation returns to normal. The increase is also the result of a market shift toward trucks and SUVs and many customers buying high end models, but there are still a few economy cars being offered with low suggested retail prices. That's not to say dealers won't try to squeeze a little more out of the sale. We've found examples of the three cheapest cars on sale with markups ranging from $1,000 to $10,000, but there are plenty listed at sticker price.NISSAN VERSA The Nissan Versa is the lowest-priced sedan available in the U.S. (Nissan) The Nissan Versa sedan's price increased by just $100 for 2022 to $16,055, which gets you a 122 hp four-cylinder engine, manual transmission and a surprisingly roomy cabin for the segment.MITSUBISHI MIRAGE The Mitsubishi Mirage is the least-powerful car on sale.

    GUESTS were left baffled after receiving these very strict rules from a bride ahead of her wedding. The list of ‘don’ts’ was included in the invitation to guests, stating all of the things that would be banned from her ceremony and reception.  1A bride has shared the very strict list of rules for her wedding guestsCredit: Redditt While some rules such as a ban on chewing gum, Apple watches and mobile phones seemed more than reasonable, other restrictions seemed less than so. Anyone attending the wedding must not wear any rubber bands on their wrists at the request of the bride and flip flops (specifically from Old Navy) will also receive a big thumbs down. Sneaking glow sticks into the venue is strictly prohibited as is drinking beer from a bottle on the dance floor. In fact guests have been asked to avoid drinking any beer at all until after the photographer has left. The bride signed off the instructions, writing: “Questions, comments, concerns not allowed.” The list of rules has since been shared on Reddit where it has left...
    CAN you spot the camouflaged snakes lurking in the grass in this image?

    As far as holy grails in medicine are concerned, you don’t get one much more significant than a cure for dementia. It’s the condition many of us fear most, as the disease slowly but inexorably obliterates the mind. We’ve been waiting for a breakthrough treatment for decades, yet despite billions spent on drug development and research by governments and companies worldwide, the majority of candidates have fallen by the wayside. Some experimental medicines have even had the opposite of the intended effect, actually worsening brain function. And the only drugs currently available simply tackle specific symptoms of mild to moderate dementia — there is nothing that can slow down the disease or prevent it. So, understandably, there was huge excitement and hopeful headlines recently after the first new medicine for Alzheimer’s (the most common type of dementia) in two decades was approved by the U.S. regulator, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As far as holy grails in medicine are concerned, you don’t get one much more significant than a cure for dementia The drug, aducanumab (brand name, Aduhelm), works...
    RETIREES eligible for Social Security can choose when to begin claiming the benefits. Delaying that claim is proving to be a wise move for millions. 1Delaying your Social Security claim can lead to bigger payments Upon retiring, you can choose when to file for Social Security benefits. While the amount of your benefits is dependant upon your salary, opting to delay your claim can result in bigger monthly payments down the line. That's because claiming benefits before you reach full retirement age can come with penalties. Not only that but claiming before age 70 means refusing delayed retirement credits, which can boost monthly payments. The credits provide an 8% increase in benefits annually, so the longer you delay your claim, the more money you'll accrue. You can only earn these credits until age 70, so delaying your claim past then will not have any additional effect on your monthly payment. But the longer you delay your claim up to age 70, the bigger of a boost your monthly payments will receive. Most read in MoneyMONEY BAGS New 'stimulus' check to...

Experience gifts may be back again this year after becoming very difficult last year thanks to the coronavirus pandemic.

    (KHN)While developing a rapid test that detects the coronavirus in someone's saliva, Blink Science, a Florida-based startup, heard something startling: The Food and Drug Administration had more than 3,000 emergency use authorization applications and didn't have the resources to get through them."We want to try to avoid the EUA quagmire," said Peb Hendrix, the startup's vice president of operations. Its test is still in early development. On the advice of consultants, the company is weighing an alternative route through the FDA to the U.S. market."It's just the way our government works," Hendrix said, which is a challenge for businesses that are "anxious to get started and think they've got something that can help."The U.S. produced covid-19 vaccines in record time, but, nearly two years into the pandemic, consumers have few options for cheap tests that quickly screen for infection, though they are widely available in Europe.

But one expert has now claimed that you can also spot signs of the illness in the eyes. 1One expert has revealed the signs of diabetes that you need to look out for in your eyesCredit: Getty High blood sugar is a common issue for diabetics as the amount of sugar in the blood is controlled by insulin which is produced by the pancreas. If you are diabetic, you don't have enough insulin to move glucose and the insulin produced does not work properly. Dr. Shane Kannarr, leading medical reviewer for eyesight experts All About Vision said high blood sugar can actually affect someone's eyes. He explained: "High blood sugar can change the blood vessels in our retina or cause swelling in the tissues of our eyes which help us see, causing blurred vision.

    Every group of enthusiasts needs its conquering hero, and for the bulging-brained cryptic crossword community, theirs has always been Edward Powys Mathers. Edward, or Bill to his friends, was a balding, bearded chap who, in the 1930s, set fiendishly difficult clues as he sat in bed in his pyjamas with a cigarette and a contented smile. His 'reign of terror', setting crosswords for the Observer newspaper between 1926 and his sudden death in 1939, is still discussed in hushed awe by Britain's legions of cruciverbalists, as crossword fans are known. But it wasn't just crosswords. In 1934, he wrote a 100-page murder-mystery novel called Cain's Jawbone. This was named after the jawbone of an ass said to have been used by Cain to slay his brother Abel in the Bible. In Mathers' book, which recounts 'a series of tragic happenings during a period of less than six months', six people are slain by six murderers in six ways. Having written the mystery, Mathers then jumbled the pages and set readers the challenge of reordering them, not just to reveal a...

    The largest Social Security cost-of-living adjustment increase in decades is set to go into effect in 2022. The 5.9% pay bump was meant to help seniors cover the cost of rising inflation. If you want to see how future COLAs will affect your retirement, you'll need to figure out how much Social Security you can expect every month.  The size of your payment will be based on your income from your working years, the year you were born and your age when you decide to start receiving benefits. CNBC calculated a wide range of salaries to estimate future benefits for people who currently make $30,000, $35,000 or $40,000 per year but are planning to retire.
