'You just never know what's going to happen next,' she says delightedly. 'I had not exactly given up on falling in love.  But I had always been a little cynical about this idea that it completely takes a hold of you.

    Spending less time outside of homes does more to reduce the number of COVID-19 cases than school closures, a new study suggests. Researchers found that shutting down classrooms was linked to a 3.5 percent decline in cases. However, behavioral changes, such as not going to restaurants or to offices, was associated with a 9.3 precent decline - almost three times as much. What's more, staying at home prevented seven times as many cases and six times as many deaths as having students learn remotely. The team, from the University of California, Los Angeles, says the findings show that the decision to close schools was 'reasonable' given the uncertainty surrounding the early days of the pandemic, but that it did not play the most important role in slowing the severity of COVID-19. A news study from the University of California, Los Angeles found that school closures were linked to a...
    Former President Donald Trump invited North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un for a ride on Air Force One after the men met for a summit in Vietnam in 2019, insiders have revealed.   That offer and other details about Trump's extraordinary relationship with Kim were brought to light in the third and final part of the BBC docu-series 'Trump Takes On the World', airing Wednesday.   Trump and Kim held their second historic meeting in Hanoi, Vietnam, in February 2019 to negotiate North Korea's nuclear program.  The summit abruptly ended when the leaders failed to agree on what Kim would be willing to give up in exchange for sanctions relief, with Trump telling reporters: 'Sometimes you just have to walk.'   But Trump apparently left things on more cordial terms that he let on in the press, the BBC docu-series revealed.   'President Trump offered Kim a lift home on Air Force One,' Matthew Pottinger, the top...
    New York : After stringing together 10 games without defeat in La Liga and adding 447 days without losing at home, the Atlético de Madrid, which seemed an invincible team, fell in the Wanda Metropolitano against the I raised by 0-2.

    DETROIT (AP) — General Motors’ net profit fell 4.5% in 2020, but a strong second half more than offset the effects of pandemic-related factory closures and a costly air bag recall. The Detroit automaker said Wednesday it made $6.43 billion as demand for its vehicles surged late in a year dominated by coronavirus upheaval. In the fourth quarter, the company made $2.85 billion. After GM’s North American factories reopened in May, the company ran many flat-out but couldn’t make up all the lost production. As customers returned to buying again, inventory was short and GM’s U.S. sales for the year fell 12% from 2019. But because buyers bought more expensive trucks and SUVs and loaded them with options, the company was able to turn the big profit. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    Total household debt fell on a quarterly basis for the first time since 2014, as Americans tightened their belts amid the coronavirus pandemic. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York reported that total household debt fell by $34 billion, or 0.2%, in the second quarter. It was the largest decrease on record since the second quarter of 2013.
