    It is not a secret that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) does not think very highly of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci. However, while Paul continues to have doubts about Fauci’s insights and advice, he urged viewers of FNC’s “Hannity” to ignore Fauci on Friday. “Virtually none of the edicts or the promulgations that come from Fauci’s mouth are based in science at all,” he said. “Take the idea that we’re now going to test the day of travel. The rapid test is accurate about between 30 and 50% if you don’t have symptoms. So most people traveling, if they know they’re sick, are going to not travel. So, most of the people we’re talking about are traveling are without symptoms. The test is 30 to 50% accurate. The Omicron variant is already across the United States and across the world. No travel ban is going to stop it, and no amount of testing is going to stop it.” “But think about this — Fauci now says if you know someone’s been vaccinated, you don’t have...

    Bill Ackman, founder and CEO of Pershing Square Capital Management.Adam Jeffery | CNBC Billionaire hedge fund manager Bill Ackman called Friday for the Federal Reserve to begin reining in the support it has provided for the U.S. economy during the pandemic. In separate tweets, the head of Pershing Square Holdings, with $13.1 billion under management, said the central bank should start turning off the monetary juice right away. He teed up his position by saying he met last week with officials at the Fed's New York branch, which houses the trading desk that carries out the wishes of officials regarding interest rates and the monthly asset purchase program. "The bottom line: we think the Fed should taper immediately and begin raising rates as soon as possible," he said. "We are continuing to dance while the music is playing," he added, "and it is time to turn down the music and settle down." The statements come just a few days before the Federal Open Market Committee is set to begin its two-day policy meeting Tuesday. For Ackman, insisting on the...
    Britain’s health secretary is reportedly planning to make coronavirus vaccines mandatory for healthcare workers in the National Health Service (NHS), despite similar requirements for care home workers resulting in tens of thousands threatening to quit. The vaccine requirement for NHS employees has long been mooted, but has yet to be implemented over objections from unions and civil liberties advocates. A report in The Times claimed that Health Secretary Sajid Javid is looking to introduce a diktat with sway over the health service “as soon as possible”, potentially forcing many once hailed as “heroes” out of a job. Mr Javid is said to believe that requiring vaccinations for healthcare workers will slow the spread of the Chinese coronavirus in hospitals. While the vast majority of NHS staff have been vaccinated, a reported 106,351 healthcare workers have not. From early on in the vaccination drive, the NHS has said that employees from ethnic minority backgrounds were less likely to take the jab — meaning they may be the hardest hit if vaccines become mandatory for employment.

    State Department spokesman Ned Price said at a press briefing Thursday that the Biden administration wants to resume nuclear talks with Iran “as soon as possible.” Iran’s foreign minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on Wednesday told his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov at a meeting in Moscow that Tehran also has plans to resume nuclear talks “soon,” Reuters reported. Diplomats met in Vienna for multilateral nuclear talks earlier this year, although negotiations have stalled since former President Donald Trump withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal. President Joe Biden has signaled he would rejoin the 2015 deal under terms that could see the U.S. scale back the sanctions imposed under the Trump administration. (RELATED: Iran Says They Are Ready For Nuclear Talks But Without ‘Western Pressure’) “We have heard similar statements from the Iranian government at various levels over the past couple weeks,” Price told reporters. “We have heard from the Iranians that they expect negotiations to resume soon. We hope their definition of soon matches our definition of soon. We would like negotiations to resume in Vienna as soon as possible.” “We continue...
    ROME, Italy — Pope Francis hosted scientists and religious leaders in the Vatican Monday, where they signed a joint appeal calling for carbon neutrality and a radical change in lifestyles. “Scientists have warned us that there might be only one decade left to restore the planet,” the appeal declares,” urging the achievement of “net zero carbon emissions as soon as possible, with wealthier countries taking the lead in reducing their own emissions and in financing emission reductions from poorer nations.” The appeal, signed by a number of scientists and leaders from different faith traditions, is addressed in particular to participants in the upcoming COP26 U.N. Climate Change Conference taking place in Glasgow, Scotland, from October 31 to November 12.

    Boris Johnson and Joe Biden's new Atlantic Charter vows to revive travel between Britain and the US 'as soon as possible'.  Links between the two countries have suffered significant disruption during the coronavirus crisis, and the two leaders want to agree a fix to allow more flights to resume in the near future. A new travel taskforce to make recommendations on how to safely reopen routes will be set up as the UK and US 'closely share thinking and expertise' on the best method for bringing back international travel.  In a highly symbolic act, the Prime Minister and President revived the original charter signed by Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt in 1941, which is credited with laying the foundations for the post-war settlement. Mr Biden said the world was at 'an inflection point in history', adding: 'A moment where it falls to us to prove that democracies will not just endure – they will excel as we rise to seize the enormous opportunities of this new age.' He said the charter would address the 'key challenges of this century – cybersecurity, emerging...
    President Joe Biden and Prime Minister Boris Johnson will pledge to open a US-UK travel corridor 'as soon as possible' and open up Transatlantic travel restrictions when the two leaders met face-to-face for the first time on Thursday. They will also establish a new 'Atlantic Charter,' modelled on the one put together by Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt in World War II. International travel will be a top issue at this week's G7 summit, where the coronavirus pandemic has essentially halted traffic as the summer holiday season approaches. Johnson planned to press Biden about a 'green channel' between their respective nations so those who are vaccinated could travel without observing a quarantine.  Before the outbreak of coronavirus more than 5 million British subjects visited the US and over 4.5 million Americans visited the UK every year – more than any other country.  To restart transatlantic travel, the two leaders will launch a new travel taskforce that will make recommendations on safely reopening it. 'We’ve established two working groups of experts -- public health experts: one with the United Kingdom...
    Savannah Rychcik May 12, 2021 0 Comments Education Secretary Miguel Cardona believes students should return to the classroom as soon as possible. CNN’s Brianna Keilar asked Cardona on Wednesday if it is too late for schools to act on his call for students to return to the classroom by spring. “Not at all. The call has been there since we know students can come to school safely and that’s where they deserve to be. Every day that passes is a wasted opportunity… our data is showing that there are disproportionate access to school which is further widening gaps in opportunity and achievement for our students,” Cardona said. He continued, “So we have to act with urgency.” When asked for his response to schools who refuse to open, Cordona explained, “It’s really important for us to be seen as a support, to see how we can support them problem solving. The resources are there, the science is there, we have great examples of across the country where it can be done.” Watch Cardona’s comments below:...
    I know there’s a ton of other Apple news happening today, but if you’re reading it on a Mac, iPhone, iPad, or Apple Watch (okay, that last one may be a stretch), you should probably pause and update that device — today’s update fixes a security issue that Apple says may have been actively exploited. The updates contained in iOS / iPadOS 14.5.1, macOS 11.3.1, and watchOS 7.4.1 are meant to fix arbitrary code execution exploits present in WebKit, Apple’s framework that renders most of the web content you see on your device (unless you’re using, say, Chrome or Firefox on Mac). In normal language, the updates patch a hole that let malicious websites run unchecked code on your device, so it’s not the type of update you want to put off. If you have an older device, such as an iPhone 5 or 6, iPad Air or Mini 2 and 3, Apple also released iOS 12.5.3, which addresses WebKit flaws. If this story sounds a little familiar, it’s because there have been two recent updates, iOS 14.4...

The US-based YouTuber Josh Paler Lin and Russian influencer Leia Se had their passports seized and deported from Indonesia's resort island on Friday after they posted a video showing themselves duping supermarket guards with a painted surgical mask.  Lin and Se staged the stunt which has provoked a furious backlash in Indonesia after they were refused entry because Se was unmasked.

    Burma remains divided in two. The protests against the coup d’état do not stop and the military junta in command stops them with repression and deaths. For this reason, the Spanish authorities recommended this Wednesday to their citizens that they leave Burma (Myanmar) as soon as possible. “If you are currently in Myanmar: It is recommended to leave the country as soon as possible, using the available flights to leave Myanmar, “says the message from the Spanish Foreign Ministry.
