    One coronavirus vaccine dose may protect COVID-19 survivors as much as two doses given to people who have never had the infection, a new study suggests.   Researchers from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill compared antibody levels among two groups of patients given either the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine or the Moderna vaccine. People previously ill with COVID-19 had twice as high levels after a single shot in comparison with people who never tested positive - and as high levels as those given a two-dose regimen. The results are consistent with those of several others that have been published over the last few weeks - suggesting that the tight supply of vaccine doses could be freed up so that more people can be immunized more quickly. However, Dr Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has refused to budge and says that, for now, all people should receive both doses.  ...
    A recently published working paper from the National Bureau of Economic Research includes a damning statistic: had the federal government instituted a nationwide moratorium on evictions from March to November 2020, deaths from COVID-19 could have been reduced by up to 40.7 percent. The move would have reduced infection rates by 14.2 percent. The finding underscores the tragic consequences of the government’s failure to respond swiftly and aggressively to the growing pandemic. Source: TODAY/YouTube Forty percent is a shockingly high number; however, one of the paper’s authors, Duke University economics professor Christopher Timmins, said that the estimate makes sense because instituting the moratorium early would have had a compounding effect. The researchers arrived at the 40.7 percent number by looking at the actual number of infections and deaths in counties that enacted moratoria on both evictions and utility shutoffs. They then extrapolated from these numbers to estimate what...

    New York Attorney General Letitia James released a report on Thursday alleging the New York State Department of Health may have undercounted nursing home COVID-19 deaths "by as much as 50%." "A larger number of nursing home residents died from COVID-19 than the New York State Department of Health's (DOH) published nursing home data reflected and may have been undercounted by as much as 50%," reads a press release from the attorney general's office unveiling the report.   According to James, the discrepancy is primarily due to the Health Department's nursing home death data not accounting for nursing home residents who died from COVID-19 in hospitals after being transferred from their nursing homes.   New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker released his own statement in response to the report on Thursday.

    (CNN)Between vaccination coverage and natural immunity among those who have recovered from an infection, about 12% -- and perhaps as much as a third -- of the US population may currently have some degree of protection against Covid-19, according to a CNN analysis. About 6% of the US population has been vaccinated against Covid-19, according to the latest data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Close to 20 million people have received at least one dose of the two-dose regimen -- which trial data shows can offer partial protection against the virus -- and more than 3.8 million people are fully vaccinated. Studies show that people who recover from Covid-19 are largely immune to the virus for a period of time. About 25 million cases of Covid-19 have been reported to the CDC, representing about another 8% of the population with some protection against Covid-19.Read MoreCovid-19 infection...

    CEO of Twitter Jack Dorsey testifies remotely during the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee hearing 'Does Section 230's Sweeping Immunity Enable Big Tech Bad Behavior', on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, October 28, 2020.Greg Nash | Pool | Reuters Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said on Wednesday that banning President Donald Trump was the "right decision for Twitter," but admitted that the internet shouldn't be controlled by a handful of private companies. In a series of 13 tweets, Dorsey said that online speech resulting in real world harm requires action even if a ban on an account is divisive "and sets a precedent I feel is dangerous." He wrote that if a company like Twitter makes a decision that people don't like, they can go elsewhere, creating an inherent check on its power. However, the across-the-board bans of Trump following the Capitol riot raised his level of concern. "This concept...

    The police officers who called the bomb squad to investigate the RV that blew up in downtown Nashville on Christmas morning and cleared the area before it exploded are being lauded as heroes on Friday. Police were responding to a call for shots fired in the early hours of Friday morning when they encountered the RV, which, according to Metro Nashville Police Chief John Drake, "had a recording saying a potential bomb would detonate within 15 minutes." Drake said officers began going door-to-door evacuating people from nearby residential buildings. The bomb squad was already responding when the RV exploded.

    Barack Obama said in an interview that aired Wednesday that 'socialism' is still too 'loaded' of a word for Democrats to embrace, but he defended figures who identify themselves as such like Alexandria Oasio-Cortez. 'Socialism is still a loaded term for a lot of folks. Once again, instead of talking labels and ideology, we should focus on talking about getting certain things done,' Obama told Snapchat's 'Good Luck America' host Peter Hamby in part one of a three-part interview. He added that many people are unconcerned with labels and more interested in passing legislation that will benefit Americans – like minimum wage and tackling the climate crisis. 'Nobody really cares about the label,' Obama said. 'They care that that is something that is important to a lot of young people and a lot of older people alike.'  Barack Obama said in an interview that aired Wednesday that Democrats still...
    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Sunday that public schools are set to reopen in phases for in-person learning starting December 7. In-person learning at preschools, 3-K programs and elementary schools will open on that date. Then schools that serve children with special educational needs, known as District 75 schools, will open on December 10 and middle schools and high schools will reopen at a later, yet to be determined, date. The schools, which make up the country’s largest school system, have been closed since November 19 after the citywide rate of coronavirus tests coming back positive exceeded the three percent benchmark agreed to by the mayor and the teachers' union.  'It’s a new approach because we have so much proof now of how safe schools can be,' De Blasio said at Sunday's coronavirus briefing, saying the three percent benchmark was being scrapped.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci said on MSNBC Friday that coronavirus task force meetings are much less frequent now than they were months ago. Chuck Todd asked how often the task force meets now. Fauci said they’re meeting “less than they used to,” adding, “A few months ago when things pivoted around to more of the economic reopening of the country, the number of task force meetings have diminished and we’re averaging right now about one a week.” He said there was a meeting last week and that Vice President Mike Pence is still in charge of the meetings. Regarding the president himself, Fauci said the last time Trump attended a task force meeting was “several months ago.” “Do you brief him often anymore?” Todd asked. “Does he call you up? He says you guys still talk. How often does he ask you your advice? Do you feel like you have...
    Joe Biden leads Donald Trump in six battleground states the president won in the 2016 election with less than two weeks to go.  The Democratic nominee leads in most national polls on the race but the battleground contests are significant because they offer a tighter view of the state of the race. Particularly, Biden leads in three states - Florida, Pennsylvania and North Carolina - that are considered must win in order to take the presidency. He also leads in Arizona, Michigan and Wisconsin, according to the poll from Change Research.   All his leads are in the margin of error and both campaigns are fighting hard in those critical areas ahead of November 3.  Joe Biden leads Donald Trump in six battleground states the president won in the 2016 election But besides the lead in the polls, early voting returns show Democrats turning up in greater number than...
    By Anna Bahney | CNN Business Rents continue to drop in some of America’s most expensive cities. With more people working from home for the foreseeable future, many renters are seeking to live in more affordable areas that can offer them extra space. That has especially impacted San Francisco, which led the nation in rental price declines in September, according to a report from Realtor.com. The median rent for a studio apartment fell to $2,285 a month, down 31% from a year ago, the report showed. Median rents for one-bedroom apartments dropped 24% to $2,873 a month, and two-bedroom rents fell to $3,931, down 21% from last year. “Renters now have the upper hand over landlords in many of the nation’s most expensive cities,” said Danielle Hale, Realtor.com’s chief economist.

    Few artists have captured the world's imagination as much as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, whose work will be explored in a blockbuster Denver Art Museum exhibit, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism. The touring show, which comprises more than 150 pieces, includes more than twenty by Kahlo, thirteen by Rivera and others by Lola Álvarez Bravo, Gunther Gerzso, María Izquierdo and Carlos Mérida. The exhibit looks at how the Mexican Modernists used art to shape their country's national identity and culture after the revolution ended in 1920. Most of the works come from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection. The Gelmans collected a jaw-dropping body of art from their friends, including commissions from Kahlo and Rivera.

    The $12,994,444 of dead space the Rangers are carrying into and through the 2020-21 season has effectively reduced the club’s working cap to $68,505,556. And now it appears that the CBA’s bonus regulations will likely reduce that figure by up to another $4.8 million, thus diminishing general manager Jeff Gorton’s working capital to approximately $18.3 million of space this offseason, rather than the virtual $23.1 million that is essentially an illusion. That is because the sum of potential bonus payouts cannot exceed 7.5-percent of the cap. That calculates to $6,112,500 on the $81.5 million cap. The Rangers could be on the hook for $10,912,500 in total potential entry level bonuses. The hypothetical $4.8 million difference would be applied to the Rangers’ cap at the start of the season. The $10,912,500 incorporates maximum payouts to Igor Shesterkin ($2.85 million), Kaapo Kakko ($2.65 million), Adam Fox ($850,000), Filip Chytil ($350,000), Julien...

    Military suicides have increased by as much as 20% this year compared to the same period in 2019, and some incidents of violent behavior have spiked as service members struggle under COVID-19, war-zone deployments, national disasters and civil unrest. While the data is incomplete and causes of suicide are complex, Army and Air Force officials say they believe the pandemic is adding stress to an already strained force. And senior Army leaders - who say they've seen about a 30% jump in active duty suicides so far this year - told The Associated Press that they are looking at shortening combat deployments. Such a move would be part of a broader effort to make the wellbeing of soldiers and their families the Army's top priority, overtaking combat readiness and weapons modernization. The Pentagon refused to provide 2020 data or discuss the issue, but Army officials said discussions in Defense Department...
    (WJZ)- It’s hard to pick out much that went wrong for the Ravens in their 38-6 Week 1 victory over the Cleveland Browns. Quarterback Lamar Jackson threw for 285 yards and three scores earning AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors. The defense held the Browns to just six points, sacking Baker Mayfield twice, picking him off once and hitting him six times. But, even in victory, as the Ravens would likely tell you themselves, there are always things to improve upon.

    More evidence has emerged about the dangers of asymptomatic patients with the novel coronavirus.  Researchers found that the viral load of those without symptoms is just as high as infected people who cough and run fevers. What's more, because asymptomatic patients contained as much of the virus, known as SARS-CoV-2, in their noses and and throats, they were just as likely to spread the disease. The team, from Soonchunhyang University Seoul Hospital in South Korea, says the findings further suggest the importance of ramping up testing and contact tracing so that people without symptoms can quickly isolate and decrease the risk of transmission. A new study found that the viral loads of asymptomatic coronavirus patients were very similar to those seen in patients with symptoms (above) For the study, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, the team looked at 303 patients infected with the virus between March 6 and March...
    Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) could lower the risk of breast cancer for some women, but raise it for others, a new study finds.  Researchers found that women who had had their uteruses removed and were taking HRT were about 25 percent less likely to develop cancer than those being given a placebo. What's more, this same group of women was more than 50 percent less likely to die from breast cancer.  But, the team, from University of California Los Angeles Medical Center, also found that women who had not had their uteruses removed raised their risk of cancer by almost one-quarter by taking HRT. Women who had undergone hysterectomies and taking hormone replacement therapy had a 25% lower risk of breast cancer than women with no uteruses but taking a placebo (file image) There are two main types of HRT: combination HRT, which contains both estrogen and progesterone, and...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – After weeks of being caught in the crosshairs of surging gun violence, protests and new laws to rein in the NYPD, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea offers a stinging rebuke to city leaders who, he says, have no idea what it takes to keep the city safe. His blue blood boiled over, CBS2’s political reporter Marcia Kramer reported. “I don’t know that there’s ever been a period exactly like this, where so many systems of government are literally cowards and won’t stand up for what’s right. They’re failing at every possible measure to be leaders,” Shea said. “How dare they?

    "The Five" co-host Brian Kilmeade said Friday that White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci is ignoring the sacrifices made by Americans during the pandemic when he discusses the spike in cases across parts of the U.S. In Senate testimony earlier this week, Fauci said he was "very concerned" by the increase in cases, adding: "We are now having 40-plus-thousand new cases a day, I wouldn't be surprised if we go up to 100,000 [cases] a day if this does not turn around." "In California and Florida, you can't go to the beach," the "Fox & Friends" host said. "Bars in Texas are shuttered again, fireworks displays across the country are canceled. So basically, Anthony Fauci and company said the best thing we could do was nothing and so far, for four months, he seems disappointed with us. "Really?" Kilmeade went on.

    Anne Schuchat, director of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), speaks during a U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions hearing at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.Stefani Reynolds | Bloomberg via Getty Images The coronavirus is spreading too rapidly and too broadly for the U.S. to bring it under control, Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said Monday. The U.S. has set records for daily new infections in recent days as outbreaks surge mostly across the South and West. The recent spike in new cases has outpaced daily infections in April when the virus rocked Washington state and the northeast, and when public officials thought the outbreak was hitting its peak in the U.S.  "We're not in the situation of New Zealand or Singapore or Korea where a new case is rapidly identified and...
    The Dallas Cowboys aren’t going to be willing to pay as much for Jamal Adams as the New York Jets are going to want in return for the star defender. That’s according to former NFL player turned analyst Darren Woodson. The former defensive back appeared on the Pat McAfee Show this weekend and he appeared to throw some “cold water” on the Adams to Cowboys rumors, according to Braulio Perez of Fansided. Woodson’s comments come after what Perez said feels like years of Cowboys fans waiting for some good news on the Adams front. The team reportedly tried to trade for him at the deadline in 2019 but a near deal fell through. Since then the team had apparently moved on, signing wide receiver Amari Cooper to a long-term deal and getting Dak Prescott locked in for at least one more season with a franchise tag contract. With rumors continuing...
    BENJAMIN MENDY feels title fatigue is behind Manchester City’s Premier League failure this season. Defeat at Chelsea on Thursday officially ended their bid for three in a row. 2 Mendy has blamed title fatigue for Man City failing to win this season And defender Mendy admits winning so much can take the edge off the hunger. The Frenchman, whose error led to Chelsea’s opener — and ultimately to the defeat which crowned Liverpool as champions - said: “When you’ve won two consecutive titles you’re naturally a bit lower mentally. “In some games we didn’t have the same determination we have now.” Boss Pep Guardiola will be disappointed to hear one of his players claim they have struggled for motivation. But he knew the game was up a long time ago and admitted his main focus is now on cups — with both domestic and European glory still a major goal....

     A new private sector report is warning anew of continuing damage to the economy if Washington doesn’t deliver several hundred billion dollars in budget relief to states and local governments amid the coronavirus pandemic. But Wednesday’s report by Moody’s Analytics, a private sector economic research firm, could also help illustrate a path for bipartisan agreement in Congress on next month’s fifth, and possibly final, COVID-19 response bill. The study warns that doing nothing to address the economic perils of state layoffs and cutbacks could cost 4 million jobs. But it also says that significantly less money is needed than whats being called for by House Democrats, who passed almost $1 trillion in help for cash-poor states and local governments as part of a sweeping $3.5 trillion rescue package last month. The Democratic bill combines $500 billion for state governments — as requested by the nation’s governors — and $375 billion...

    Michael Osterholm, director for the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, said it is “wrong” to hear that Trump administration officials don’t want to have coronavirus testing in the U.S.  “To hear the fact that, we don't want to do testing, is wrong. Absolutely, we should be testing as much as possible,” Osterholm said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”  Osterholm did not specifically reference President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump mocked for low attendance at rally Trump suggests legislation that would jail people who burn the flag for a year Trump makes defiant return to campaign stage amid controversies MORE, but during his first campaign rally in months on Saturday in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the president told the crowd he encouraged administration officials to “slow the testing down.”  "Testing is a double-edged sword.

Emotionally, it’s very, very stressful on everyone. We will do what it...

"Our position is that we should enable as much expression as possible unless it will cause imminent risk of specific harms or dangers spelled out in clear policies," Zuckerberg wrote.   Mr. Trump posted on Twitter and Facebook early Friday that Minneapolis protesters were "thugs" and wrote "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." The second tweet in the thread was quickly flagged by Twitter as "glorifying violence."   Mr. Trump's full Facebook post remained visible one day later. Zuckerberg wrote that he has been "struggling with how to respond to the President's tweets and posts all day. Personally, I have a visceral negative reaction to this kind of divisive and inflammatory rhetoric."
