    HONOLULU (AP) — When Japanese bombs began falling on Pearl Harbor, U.S. Navy Seaman 1st Class David Russell first sought refuge below deck on the USS Oklahoma. But a split-second decision on that December morning 80 years ago changed his mind, and likely saved his life. “They started closing that hatch. And I decided to get out of there,” Russell, now 101, said in a recent interview. Within 12 minutes his battleship would capsize under a barrage of torpedoes. Altogether 429 sailors and Marines from the Oklahoma would perish — the greatest death toll from any ship that day other than the USS Arizona, which lost 1,177. Russell plans to return to Pearl Harbor on Tuesday for a ceremony in remembrance of the more than 2,300 American troops killed in the Dec. 7, 1941, attack that launched the U.S. into World War II. About 30 survivors and 100 other veterans from the war are expected to observe a moment of silence at 7:55 a.m., the minute the attack began. Survivors, now in their late 90s or older, stayed home last...
    Hong Kong (CNN)Little is known about the potential dangers posed by the Omicron coronavirus variant but concern over its spread is already threatening to wreck reopening plans in Asia-Pacific. After more than 20 months of strict border controls and restrictions on daily life, many countries in the region had tentatively started to loosen up and live with Covid -- months after their European and North American counterparts fully reopened. But it took only a matter days to change that.Last month, after South African scientists detected a new variant, dozens of nations imposed travel bans on visitors from several southern African countries. Some countries in Asia-Pacific have gone further by extending mandatory quarantines or shutting their borders to almost all foreign travelers.Scientists in the United States say it will take at least two weeks to know more about how the variant impacts vaccine efficacy and Covid treatments. As public health experts wait for the data, governments across the Asia-Pacific region aren't taking any risks. Many are acting quickly over concerns the new Omicron variant could spread into their territories, even in...

    This time of year, if you have a yard with trees, it can feel like no matter how often you rake, there is always a layer of leaves covering your lawn within a blink of the eye.  The leaves can look stunning and give you a sense of nostalgia and coziness, but still, the one-going chore of raking them up becomes a reality. Then comes the question of what to do with all of these leaves.  Well, there are in fact a number of ways you can make the most of this wonderful resource. If you don’t have a yard full of leaves, ask around to see if neighbors or friends might be willing to share theirs.  If you offer to rake them up in exchange for taking them away, it becomes a win-win. Don’t think of leaf raking as a chore.  See it as the gathering of a natural free gift that can do wonders in your garden. 1.  Make Compost Fall leaves are the garden’s gold.  A good compost mix needs a mix of green and...
    Long Covid may lead to an increased risk of death in the year after a patient's diagnosis, a new study finds. Researchers at the University of Florida analyzed health records from over 13,000 patients, following them for 12 months.  Patients who had severe Covid symptoms were 2.5 times as likely to die over the next year after their diagnosis compared with those who tested negative for Covid. Younger patients (under age 65) who suffered severe symptoms had a particularly high mortality risk at 3.3 times as likely to die as patients under age 65 who tested negative. The study indicates that there's 'a substantial risk of dying' from unrecognized Covid complications, the study's lead author said. Vaccination can prevent such complications.  Patients hospitalized with severe Covid symptoms have an increased risk of dying - from all causes - in the next year, a new study finds. Pictured: Healthcare workers treat a Covid patient in an ICU in Tarzana, California, September 2021 It's now well-known among scientists and doctors that Covid infections can lead to symptoms for many weeks or months...
    SACRAMENTO (AP) — A new California policy could send dozens of quadriplegic, paraplegic or otherwise permanently incapacitated inmates from nursing homes back to state prisons. Prison officials say a change in federal rules led them to limit medical parole to inmates so ill they are hooked to ventilators to breathe, meaning their movement is so limited they are not a public danger.

    (CNN)Pfizer is expected to seek authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration for its vaccine booster shot for those who are ages 16 and 17, a source familiar with the plan told CNN on Monday.Currently only those 18 and up are eligible for booster shots six months after their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.Pfizer didn't immediately respond to CNN's request for comment.The development comes as scientists in the US and around the world are racing to learn more about a new coronavirus variant called Omicron. President Joe Biden urged Americans earlier Monday not to panic over the new variant, and encouraged those who have not yet gotten a booster but are eligible to do so.Biden had hoped to have boosters made widely available months ago, but emergency booster authorization ultimately didn't happen until October, and widespread booster shots have not been available until this month. Asked on Monday if making boosters available to everyone sooner could have helped with the current dynamic, press secretary Jen Psaki referred the question to medical experts.Read MoreThis story is breaking and will...
    Vain people with big egos and a sense of entitlement have poorer visual memories, a study suggests. They may struggle to remember faces and objects because of the way they focus on themselves, researchers said. In the study, 1,435 participants were tested for levels of the ‘grandiose narcissism’ personality trait which involves pronounced self-focus, egotism, vanity, a sense of entitlement and a tendency to disregard the needs of others. Vain people with big egos and a sense of entitlement have poorer visual memories, a study suggests. A stock image is used above [File photo] In the first of six experiments, participants were briefly shown pictures of 40 men before being given other tasks to complete.  They were then shown these photos again as well as another 40 in random order and asked whether they had seen each face before. Those who were more narcissistic tended to perform worse than their more modest peers. Further tests showed narcissism also led to poorer visual memory of common objects, houses and cars which showed it was not just social stimuli, such as faces,...
    Reynisfjara is a world-famous black-sand beach located on the south coast of Iceland.Luis Cagiao Photography | Moment | Getty Images Iceland has been a focal point of my wanderlust for the better part of two years. The country is a dreamscape of natural beauty: the black sands of Reynisfjara, towering icebergs of the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon and the steep, jagged peaks of Vestrahorn. I was forced to shelve a meticulously planned trip there in 2020, like so many other globetrotters who set aside excursions during the Covid pandemic. Since then, I've wondered: When will an adventure overseas be feasible again? Perhaps soon. The 2022 outlook for travel abroad is rosier than ever, especially for Americans booking trips in the summer or later, according to travel experts. But they should expect to do more advance planning and remain flexible. "Since March 2020, there hasn't been a time as promising as it is now," Sebastian Modak, editor-at-large of Lonely Planet and the New York Times 52 Places Traveler in 2019, said of travel overseas. "It really comes down to the traveler's own...
    WORKERS earning less than $75,000 a year in one state could be in line for an early Christmas present - a stimulus check worth $200. People in Illinois could be getting the extra cash after the proposal was made by Republicans in the state's House of Representatives. 1Republican lawmakers in Illinois have proposed a $200 stimulus check for Americans earning less than $75,000 - just weeks before ChristmasCredit: Getty Should it become law, single taxpayers earning less than $75,000 would receive a $200 check, while the amount is $400 for joint filers earning less than $150,000, according to WCIA. GOP State Representative Tom Demmer said the support would "mirror" some of the financial aid given by the federal government in the past couple of years. He added: "$400 won't make all the problems go away but it could have a positive impact. "It could be an extra week or two of groceries, it could be a few extra utility bills or it could make the difference between being able to buy new shoes or winter coats for your kids." Illinois...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia health officials say they are working with a family-owned pharmacy to re-vaccinate patients after the pharmacies in Hancock County distributed “overly-diluted” shots of the Pfizer and BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Denmark has joined other European nations in offering a third COVID-19 vaccination shot to everyone over the age of 18 amid a rise in coronavirus cases. The Danish Health Authority said Thursday the “decline in immunity is also happening for people in the younger age groups.” Helene Probst, deputy head of the government agency, said “revaccination is offered at the same interval to everyone over 18 years of age.” Denmark, like many other countries in Europe, has seen an uptick in infections, with health authorities saying the numbers of cases and hospitalizations have risen faster than expected. “When we see the epidemic flare up right now, it is primarily due to the transition from summer to autumn and winter, and at the same time we have an open society with only a few restrictions. Combined with the fact that the effect of the vaccines decreases over time, it is expected that the infection will increase,” Probst said in a statement. In Denmark, which already has offered booster shots to older people and the vulnerable, the...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Public Works officials say Thanksgiving is the worst time of year for sewer blockages as fats, oils, and greases (FOG) make their way down the drain. “It’s that fat that comes off that food.

Put (FOG) in the trash can.” READ MORE: Man Dies After Being Shot In The Head In West BaltimoreMcNair said “FOG” is to blame for small blockages and big ones, like the 2017 “Fatberg” in a midtown sewer line on Charles Street.

    COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Sweden recommended Wednesday that everyone between the ages of 18 and 65 should get a booster shot against COVID-19 six months after having received the second jab. Social Affairs Minister Lena Hallengren said about 7 million people in Sweden, which has a population of 10 million, have had both shots. But she expressed concern about the uptick in coronavirus infections. “The government takes the spread of infection around the world seriously,” Hallengren said. “The purpose (of offering a third shot) is to be prepared for a possible deteriorating situation.” Karin Tegmark Wisell, head of the Swedish Public Health Agency, said the vaccine was ”our most important tool for dealing with the pandemic.” “Two shots provide good protection against serious illness and death, but the protective effect diminishes over time,” she told a news conference. Sweden had previously stood out among European nations for its comparatively hands-off response to the pandemic. All people above age 65 have already been offered a third shot. Authorities say 26% in that age group has received a booster so far. The...

    Getty Images Dr. Marty Makary slammed the “farce” of mask usage in a Tuesday interview, arguing that they had become part of a caste system in which the rich were exempt. “I don’t wear a mask,” the pancreatic surgeon and Fox News contributor noted in an interview for former New York Times editor Bari Weiss’ Substack. “I don’t wear a mask in public or with friends unless I’m at a bingo night at the local geriatric gathering where there’s a lot of people that have organ transplants. I wear a mask out of courtesy but look at the farce of what’s happening. Not only do you have to wear a mask for the nine steps to walk to your table at a restaurant, but when you go to a gathering the workers are wearing a mask and no one else is.” While most states have rolled back rules that required private establishments to enforce mask mandates, six states — Hawaii, Illinois, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington — still have such rules in place, and the federal government is still enforcing...
    Americans with certain mental disorders are at an increased risk of dying from COVID-19, a new study finds. Researchers from the University of Texas found that people who suffer from schizophrenia are four times as likely to die of Covid than the general population. Additionally. those who have anxiety or mood disorders are almost three times as likely to die from the virus as people without these conditions.  What's more, people with psychiatric disorders were also found to contract COVID-19 at lower rates, which researchers believe is a result of social isolation associated with the conditions.

    Photo by Dave DeckerFor those who recall the grotesque circus of George Zimmerman’s 2013 trial, Kyle Rittenhouse’s acquittal felt painfully familiar. Like Zimmerman, the self-appointed neighborhood watchman who stalked and shot a Black teenager, Rittenhouse claimed self-defense after provoking a confrontation. Rittenhouse, a white teenager, took an assault rifle to “defend” Kenosha, Wisconsin—a city 45 minutes from his Illinois home—against a Black Lives Matter demonstration. After lying about his medical credentials and pointing his gun at a bystander, Rittenhouse fatally shot a protester who chased him, then another who struck him with a skateboard, then shot an armed paramedic in the arm. “Initial aggressors” aren’t supposed to be entitled to claim self-defense. But the legal lines are blurry enough that aggression lies in the eye of the beholder—in other words, whom the system deems the “right” vigilante or the “right” victim. Even the three Georgia men who killed Ahmaud Arbery while making a “citizen’s arrest” for Jogging While Black nearly escaped prosecution; until video footage surfaced exposing what happened, the cops and the district attorney were happy to sweep the...

    The judge presiding over the case against Kyle Rittenhouse criticized on Wednesday misinformation and the media for the “grossly irresponsible handling of what comes out of this trial,” as jurors deliberate a verdict. “Some of the other misinformation about the case … is widespread, and you gentlemen are aware of it as I am,” Judge Bruce Schroeder said while speaking with the defense and prosecution. Schroeder first touched on a report from the Milwaukee Sentinel Journal that included commentary from several law professors speculating why Schroeder had not yet responded to the defense’s motion to dismiss with prejudice. Rittenhouse’s defense filed the motion Monday alleging the prosecution deliberately withheld high-quality drone footage of one of the key moments of the shooting. Schroeder had not responded to the motion, per the report, leading several professors to tell the outlet it was “odd,” and unusual. “I didn’t rule on the motion to dismiss, I haven’t even had a chance to read the motion, I just got it yesterday,” Schroeder said. “I really think before I rule on a motion I should let...
    MSNBC anchor Joy Reid on Tuesday compared the Kyle Rittenhouse trial to Jim Crow-era cases. Rittenhouse was 17 years old when he shot three men, killing two, during riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, a Black man. Rittenhouse is facing multiple charges related to the shootings. Rittenhouse’s attorneys have argued that Rittenhouse was acting in self-defense, while the prosecution has claimed otherwise. As of Tuesday morning, the jury has been deliberating the charges. On The ReidOut, teeing up NBC and MSNBC legal contributor Katie Phang, Reid said, “It’s stunning, Katie, this feels like those cases in the 1950s where it was in and out, in and out, you know, somebody white male killed someone and they were in and out fast and acquitted. That’s how it feels to me.” Phang concurred: Yes. And I feel like people are going to be intellectually dishonest if you’re to say that it would be the same result if it was a young black male carrying an AR-15 on the streets in the middle of what is happening. You’re being dishonest intellectually, socially, in every single way, if...
    Germany is planning new Covid restrictions for 14 million unvaccinated citizens as it battles soaring coronavirus cases, mirroring a health apartheid imposed in Austria. The country is battling a ferocious fourth wave of coronavirus and recorded 32,048 new infections on Tuesday, a rise of 47 per cent compared to a week ago, as well as another 265 deaths.   The incoming Social Democrat (SDP) government today warned that unvaccinated people will be barred from going to work and travelling on public transport.    The new government will also recommend that everyone should work from home unless they have a 'compelling business reason'.

    Tucker Carlson would like to know more about Vice President Kamala Harris’s relationship with Montel Williams 20 years ago because reasons. On Monday night the Fox News host began a segment on the vice president by saying, “There’s a lot we don’t know about Harris.” He said that because the vice president went to school in Canada, she’s not really from the United States “in that sense.” Whatever that means. “She really grew up in Canada,” said Carlson. “That’s where she went to high school. She’s not from this country in that sense.” He then asked, “Why haven’t we heard that?” (Some of us have.) The Fox News host then strongly intimated that Harris has slept her way into prominent positions. “By the way, how did someone who clearly is not liked by the people around her and clearly isn’t very good at her job, get so high up?” Carlson proceeded to rehash the history of Harris’s relationship with Willie Brown. In the early 1990s, Harris and Willie Brown, then the Speaker of the California State Assembly, began a romantic...

Goldstein, a retired attorney, described what it felt like losing her hair to an autoimmune disease called alopecia areata. “I have lost basically, I have little stubble, but hair all around here. So it’s from like the middle of my head down over my ears,” Goldstein said. Goldstein makes it sound like she still had some hair, but she virtually had no hair at all.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Twice as many kids were homeschooled during the 2020-2021 school year than the year before, and there is new research on the pros and cons of homeschooling. Researchers at Harvard looked at more than 12,000 children between 1999 and 2010 and found those who were homeschooled were 23% less likely to attend college than those in public school. However, homeschooled children were more likely to volunteer, and tended to be more forgiving, and were more likely to attend religious services in young adulthood, which has been associated with a lower risk of substance use, depression, and suicide. Parents who homeschool often cite concerns over safety, drugs, and negative peer pressure in schools, so researchers say that the gaps may be growing even wider with the rise in social media use, cyberbullying, and sexting in public schools.
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — On this Veterans Day, a group of paralyzed vets is sounding the alarm about the dangers they encounter when traveling on planes. The group is called Paralyzed Veterans of America. They are fighting for better access on planes, not just for vets, but for anyone who uses a wheelchair. READ MORE: From Trash To Treasure: Cramer Hill Waterfront Park, Built On Old Harrison Avenue Landfill, Providing Gem In CamdenTraveling by air is cramped, uncomfortable and a hassle for everyone, so imagine the difficulties for someone in a wheelchair. “Sometimes it’s inhumane, it’s dangerous,” group member Charlie Brown said. Charlie Brown has been in a wheelchair for 35 years and says planes are a nightmare, noting that even the bathrooms on the aircraft are not wheelchair accessible. “I can’t use the bathroom, so I have to dehydrate,” Brown said. He says that doesn’t always work, adding that “it’s embarrassing.” Brown was in the Marines when he dove into a pool and broke his neck. Now, he’s president of Paralyzed Veterans of America. “We’re advocating for the air carriers...
                      by Thomas Spoehr  Thursday is Veterans Day. We celebrate Veterans Day on the 11th day of the 11th month of the year, the day the guns fell silent in Europe following the armistice that ended World War I. For some, it’s a day off from school or work, but for the majority of Americans, it means so much more. Veterans Day is the chance to thank and honor those who have selflessly served their country. Support for veterans has been mixed through our nation’s history. But today, through the efforts of great Americans, respect and assistance for veterans has never been stronger. In increasing numbers, veterans are returning that support by continuing their service to their communities and country. The term “veteran” comes from the Latin, vetus meaning “old.” In America and elsewhere, we use the word to describe those who have served in the military. But you don’t need to be old to be considered a veteran. A veteran is a person who has served honorably in the U.S. military....
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Northeast Philadelphia martial arts studio is bringing karate to people with special needs after some pandemic pivots. Last year, we met Mark Gallagher and his wife Alicia. They founded the AmeriKick Cares Foundation. In January 2020, they started a free weekly class for people with special needs, ages grade school to adult.

But AmeriKick Cares didn’t stop. By late spring, their classes had moved to local parks, and the class is once again back in person. “They just continue to keep the ball rolling for our kids,” mother Dawn Powell said. Powell’s son Anthony is just one of the students back in class. “He loves it. My...
    ROME (AP) — Italy is expanding the number of people eligible for a booster vaccine as the 4th wave in the COVID-19 pandemic grips Europe. Health Minister Roberto Speranza told lawmakers in the Chamber of Deputies on Wednesday that anyone 40 years or older can get the booster shot starting on Dec. 1. Italy has already offered boosters to those 60 years old and older who received their last vaccine dose at least six months earlier. The country hasn’t been hit as hard in the latest wave of the coronavirus pandemic as some northern countries including Austria and Germany as well as several nations in eastern Europe. Italian authorities are scrambling to keep it that way. Experts credit in large part Italy’s vaccination rate. Nearly 84% of those 12 and older and eligible for the shots are fully vaccinated. Since early in the pandemic, Italy has also required masks to be worn indoors in places like supermarkets, cinemas, churches and on mass transit. Other anti-pandemic measures include the requirement starting this autumn for a so-called...

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Eagles are partnering with a youth sports charity to open a new warehouse for those in need of sports equipment. In a press release, the Eagles stated that research shows the participation of children in youth sports leagues has decreased over the past few years because of the costs, time commitments and competitive nature of youth sports leagues. In an effort to get children involved and keep them engaged in sports, the Eagles and Leveling the Playing Field will open the new LPF Philadelphia warehouse on Tuesday. The Eagles are partnering with LPF for an on-site volunteer event where local high school football players from the Boys Latin Charter and members of the Eagles community will work together to help build out the new warehouse space. The event is being held Tuesday from 4 to 5 p.m. at the warehouse in Sharon Hill.

    CAIRO (AP) — Two leading international rights groups urged Sudan’s military in a joint statement Tuesday to release government officials, activists and others detained during the army’s coup last month. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International also appealed for an end to “further arbitrary arrests” and the crackdown that has been taking place on anti-coup protests. This was the first time the two groups issued a joint statement; they had each separately appealed on Sudan’s military to free those arrested during and after the coup. On Oct. 25, the Sudanese military seized power, dissolving the country’s transitional government and detaining more than 100 government officials and political leaders, along with a large number of protesters and activists. The army also placed the country’s prime minister, Abdalla Hamdok, under house arrest in his residence in the capital of Khartoum. Since the takeover, at least 14 anti-coup protesters have been killed due to excessive force used by the country’s security forces, according to Sudanese doctors and the United Nations. On Sunday, security forces tear-gassed demonstrators and rounded up more...
    People who believe they have Covid, but do not have a confirmed positive test, are more likely to report symptoms of the virus, a new study suggests.  A research team from the Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale - the French National Institute of Health - found that those who believed they had Covid were up to 16 times likely to experience symptoms as a person without the virus, and eight times as likely as someone confirmed to have had Covid. The only common symptom of COVID-19 found to be more frequent among those with a confirmed case was anosmia, loss of sense of smell.  The team believes medical professionals may not want to ascribe all potential Covid symptoms a person may feel to the virus itself, and should instead screen for other potential causes that could be going undetected.  Researchers also believe that because some people reporting symptoms may have never had the virus, some diagnoses of 'long Covid' may be incorrect.    Researchers found that people who believe they have Covid but did not confirm...
    President Joe Biden snapped at a Fox News reporter who asked about compensation being negotiated for families who were separated by President Donald Trump’s administration. On Saturday morning, the president took to the State Dining Room of the White House to celebrate the passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill, and took questions from reporters. One exchange turned heated when Fox News reporter David Spunt asked about reports that migrants separated under Trump could receive settlements of up to $450,000 per person — a report that the president disputed earlier this week. An impassioned Biden clarified that he was disputing the amount reported, and said those families “deserve compensation” for what Trump’s administration put them through: Spunt: You said last week that this report about migrant families at the border getting payments was garbage. President Biden: No, I didn’t say that, get it was straight. You said everybody coming across the border gets 500, $450,000.00. Spunt: So the number is what you had a problem with. President Biden: The number, I was referring to. Spunt: OK. President Biden: Now here’s the thing....
