    "WandaVision" left us extremely satisfied, but we still have some left over questions. Marvel Studios Warning: There are major spoilers ahead for the "WandaVision" finale. Insider's Kirsten Acuna and Olivia Singh round up every remaining lingering question they have. What did Agatha want with Wanda's powers? Is a version of Vision still out there? Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. All season long, Insider's Kirsten Acuna and Olivia Singh have been theorizing how and where "WandaVision" may wind up. Some items we called such as the show being about Wanda's grief and processing loss. Others? Not so much. (See: Reed Richards, Mephisto, and believing Dottie could be another witch.) We've been keeping a running list of questions that we hoped to see answered by the finale. While some were resolved (Wanda received her superhero moniker), others were largely ignored or never addressed (What was Hayward's end goal?)....
              Senator Tim Kaine (D-Virginia) appeared on the Virginia Hospital and Healthcare Association (VHHA) Patients Come First podcast on Sunday. Kaine explained two upcoming financial relief packages, provided an update on Virginia’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution, explained his Medicare-X Choice Act, and detailed his COVID-19 symptoms. “It was very odd. So, I had my whole staff state to telecom on March 11, [2020] because there had started to be some spread of COVID in the Capitol,” he said. “In late March I all of the sudden got hit with like a blizzard of severe allergic reactions. Pink eye, skin rashes that would pop up on one part of my body and then go away and then pop up somewhere else.” Kaine said he thought it was an allergic reaction. “I didn’t have the traditional symptoms – respiratory problems or fatigue,” he said. When he got...
    Surely all mothers think their children are beautiful? Without a doubt, I’m hopelessly in love with my daughters’ faces. At 15 and 12, their skin is flushed with youth, their waist-length blonde hair shines and every time they smile, I am spellbound. I’m sure I am biased — but you can never be too sure. Perhaps a model agency scout is lurking around the corner, ready to pounce? I know it can happen. After all, it happened to me. I was 13 when I was sitting in a pancake restaurant on London’s King’s Road with my two sisters, debating savoury versus sweet. Two women stopped at the window to stare in at me and point, like they were eyeing up a yummy-looking cake in a patisserie. Then they came in and asked me if I wanted to join their agency, Models 1. Never before had I considered myself pretty. At school,...
    Godwin Aniagbo Complaints about brutal policing in Nigeria today echo the reaction to the shooting dead by colonial policemen of striking coalminers in 1949 and, as the BBC’s Nduka Orjinmo reports, there are some who believe there is a direct connection. When the ikoro sounded on the afternoon of 18 November 1949, schoolboy Godwin Aniagbo knew something was wrong. In traditional Igbo society, the ikoro, a huge hollowed wooden drum mostly carved out of the tough and dense iroko tree, sat permanently in the town square and only sounded in times of grave crisis or to summon people to an important meeting. Hours before, on his way back from school with some friends, Mr Aniagbo had run into members of the colonial police looking like they were expecting trouble. There had been days of tension following protests at a local coal mine. “I saw the Europeans, [about six of...
    The Nets’ blockbuster move to get James Harden has stunned the NBA and made them the betting favorites to come out of the Eastern Conference. Everybody from scouts to Las Vegas oddsmakers expect them to face the Lakers in the NBA Finals. But the move also left a bunch of questions that will need to be answered, some short term and some long. Q: Fans are having flashbacks of the ill-fated 2013 trade for Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett that set the franchise back. Why is this different? A: The downside theoretically could be as bad, certainly. But the ceiling is much higher. Garnett and Pierce were a combined 72 years old, and both were far past their primes. Harden, 31, is coming off three straight scoring titles. Kevin Durant is still just 32 and Kyrie Irving is 28. Besides, that Nets team was never going to be a...

Chipotle shares climbed nearly 1% in afternoon trading ahead of the release, adding to their more than 62% gain for the year.The stock's action on Wednesday brought it within 2% of its all-time high from early September. "The big question is can they sustain this massive growth?" Michael Bapis, managing director of Vios Advisors at Rockefeller Capital Management, told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Wednesday. Applauding Chipotle's ability to scale its delivery business during the coronavirus pandemic, Bapis listed several other factors working in the company's favor including its customer loyalty program.

    First lady Melania Trump will not be joining her husband, President Trump, on the campaign trail like she originally planned. The first lady was expected to appear at a rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, marking her first campaign rally appearance in over a year, but it will have to wait because she's dealing with a lingering cough weeks after she tested positive for COVID-19, according to the Associated Press. Her chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, said the decision for her not to attend the rally was made out of an abundance of caution given her recent coronavirus diagnosis. This would have been her first public appearance since being stricken with the virus along with her husband in early October. The Trumps were both sidelined for a week in October, when their family, including son Barron Trump, all contracted the virus, though it remains unclear where they got it....

The notion of a contested election was a focus at a private client meeting held by Goldman Sachs leaders a few weeks ago, according to a person familiar with the gathering.  Some of their clients, according to a person familiar with the meeting, were trying to reposition themselves for what could be an extended period of volatility after Election Day, Nov. 3.  Since then, as Biden opened up a bigger lead in the polls, a handful of Goldman...
    (CNN)The 72 hours between President Donald Trump's acknowledgment early Friday morning that he had tested positive for Covid-19 and his wildly irresponsible parade by supporters gathered outside Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Sunday night have created more questions than they have answered.Yes, we know that Trump had a high fever on Friday and that he was given supplemental oxygen before being transported to Walter Reed. (Although we only know that thanks to dogged reporting, since the White House medical staff purposely obfuscated both his condition and the treatments required to deal with it.)And we know that at least eight people -- including Trump and first lady Melania Trump -- who attended last Saturday's announcement of Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court in the Rose Garden have since tested positive.But beyond that, there are still a LOT of unknowns -- questions that the White House either refuses to...

    The US Centers for Disease Control has admitted for the first time that coronavirus is airborne as it updated its guidelines on how the virus spreads. The agency previously said the disease was spread via large droplets expelled when a patient coughs and sneezes, infecting people in close contact with them.  But the new guidelines, updated on Friday, acknowledge 'growing evidence' that the virus can be spread via very small droplets that are expelled when a patient breathes, can linger in the air, and travel further than six feet. Airborne viruses 'are among the most contagious and easily spread', the CDC warns, while advising people to use air purifiers to clean the air in indoor spaces, in addition to wearing masks, washing hands, and isolating if you are sick. The CDC has acknowledged 'growing evidence' that coronavirus is airborne, meaning the virus can linger in the air and infect people...
    SANTA CLARA (KPIX) — As smoke blankets the Bay Area, the 49ers plan to play football at Levi’s Stadium even as a player didn’t practice Friday because of the poor air quality.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has extended Spare the Air alerts through Tuesday because of wildfire smoke that is still causing elevated pollution levels around the region. The air district has issued a long string of the alerts, which ban the burning of wood and other solid fuel both indoors and outdoors, after lightning strikes sparked wildfires around the Bay Area two weekends ago. Although the amount of smoke around the region has lessened thanks to on-shore breezes and crews making progress on containing the blazes, air quality is still expected to be unhealthy through the weekend, particularly near the fires in the North Bay and South Bay, according to the air district. “Unfortunately, over the next several days we’re expecting more of the same smoky conditions we’ve been experiencing from the wildfires that continue to burn in the region,” Jack Broadbent, executive...

    The second round of municipal elections will be the first post-Covid-19 electoral test in France on Sunday, with the main challenge of bringing the French to the polls despite persistent concern over the health situation. More than three months after the disputed first round was held on March 15, the vote will take place in 4,820 municipalities where the municipal councils have not been fully elected. However, the elections were again postponed in Guyana, where the situation remains, according to the government, “extremely worrying”. As a result of the crisis that led to the postponement in extremis of the vote, scheduled for March 22, the election campaign was carried out at a minimum, without the handshakes and proximity inherent in this election. Which induces additional uncertainty. Usually the second round confirms and amplifies the results of the first. “With a second round three months later, that leaves a lot of...

    Death records show that hundreds of Americans die from heat each year, but a new investigation reveals it may actually be thousands. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has estimated some 600 people lose their lives to extreme temperatures, but a new study suggests the real amount is more than 5,600. Researchers used data from the National Center for Health Statistic on deaths in populous areas in the US from 1997 through 2006, along with a model that estimates temperatures in these regions. The data shows moderate heat killed 3,309 people per year in the counties included in the study, and extreme heat killed 2,299 people each year. However, as the coronavirus linger across the nation, experts fear these numbers will increase, as publicly accessible air conditioned spaces are now longer available.

    NEW YORK (AP) - After another mostly peaceful night, more demonstrations over the death of George Floyd in New York City were planned for Saturday amid lingering tension between protesters and police over the city’s 8 p.m. curfew. On Friday night, demonstrators again remained on city streets hours after the curfew. With police generally allowing some leeway, crowds mostly dwindled on their own at various locations. But there were some minor flare-ups: About an hour after a Brooklyn protest ended, images on social media showed officers surrounding a group of protesters and chasing down some with batons.
