    Goldman Sachs CEO has slammed working from home as an 'aberration' and said it is not the 'new normal' as he revealed the company is not likely to be offering it as a permanent option.

    While research into emerging coronavirus variants is ongoing, one expert cautioned that they are "not magic," and the measures in place to mitigate current spread will still work against the new strains. Mutations also aren’t out of the norm for a virus, especially one with such high community spread, Dr. Gigi Gronvall, a senior scholar at John Hopkins Center for Health Security and associate professor at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, said in a media briefing Thursday. "What we are seeing with SARS-CoV-2 is not unexpected," she said, during the "COVID-19 Variants: What They mean for Testing and Vaccines, Reaching Herd Immunity and Driving Down Transmission," briefing.

    Gina Carano has been in the eye of the hurricane for a few months for some posts she made on her social networks in which she revealed her political positions -supporting Donald Trump- or her ideas about transgender people, however they had not gone beyond hashtags and campaigns on Twitter. But now, LucasFilm has signaled that they will not be working with Gina Carano again for either The Mandalorian or any of the Star Wars spinoffs.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) criticized the minimum wage increase and funding for state and local governments in President Joe Biden’s coronavirus relief proposal and said that he will not vote for a coronavirus relief package on a party-line vote. Manchin said, “I don’t think that’s [a minimum wage increase to $15] going to make it in. Because it doesn’t fit within…the Byrd Rule. The only thing we can do during this reconciliation is anything that comes within the financial realms of what we’re dealing with. It’s called a budget reconciliation. It has to be within the budget lines. That does not come within that at all. And it really needs to be debated. It doesn’t work in — different states are different. Some states already have $15.

    Last December we reported that Christopher Nolan, a frequent contributor to Warner Bros. Pictures, was not at all happy with the studio’s decision to release his films for 2021 simultaneously in both US theaters and on HBO Max. The criticism came from all quarters, to the point where it was raised whether the strategy would cause more damage to WB than they might initially think. According to the latest news from the Wall Street Journal, the filmmaker is unwilling to work with the studio again, mainly due to the enormous disappointment he has been caused by the company’s decision to sacrifice the movie experience. In this way, the 2020 science fiction film ‘Tenet’ would be the last joint project for Nolan and the studio after 18 years of collaborating together. The acclaimed director began working with Warner Bros. in 2002 on the psychological thriller, “Insomnia,” starring Al Pacino,...

    Dear Moneyist, I am writing because I have been reading so many different questions, answers and as much general information I can find, but I just want one simple answer — and quickly! My husband and I and our child received the first stimulus check from his 2018 tax return. My husband works any kind of side work he can find. He has had past criminal felony charges and is now listed as a felon, which makes it difficult for him to find full-time work. But when COVID-19 hit, his work died so he could not file a 2019 return. We were not aware of the non-filer registration, file $0 income return, or whatever you call it, so now we are wondering if we’ll be getting a check in our mailbox or not. We are very frustrated and feel excluded. The Moneyist:My wife has a degenerative neurological...
    People who have survived COVID-19 may have some protection against getting reinfected after all, a new study suggests.  Scientists at Rockefeller University found that a type of immunity, from memory B cells, lasts at least six months.  B cells 'remember' how to make antibodies against viruses, including the one that causes COVID-19.  And these cells are likely less easily duped by mutations in the spike protein of 'super-covid' variants like the more infectious UK form, B117, compared to antibodies themselves.  The variant has now been found in at least 17 US states, according to DailyMail.com tracking.  At least four other variants have cropped up on American soil, and others from South Africa and Brazil could arrive and fuel a surge in cases any day - especially now that the Trump administration has lifted its travel ban.  Scientists are concerned that mutations to the spike protein that allows coronavirus to infect...
    On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) reiterated his promise to oppose packing the court or ending the filibuster. After viewing a clip of his earlier vow, Manchin responded, “It’s all the same. Nothing’s changed.” Manchin added that if incoming Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) tries to pressure him to end the filibuster, he’ll tell Schumer to try to work with Republicans. On the issue of statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico, Manchin stated, “I’m happy to look at all of these issues, but I’ve said what I’ve said on the others.” And that the Senate is supposed to work with input from the minority party.

    Citing pandemic hardships, Los Angeles school officials on Monday deferred any failing grades from this semester until at least Jan. 29, giving students additional time to avoid receiving an F in their classes. The move is the latest effort by the nation’s second-largest school district to avoid penalizing students under strain during a public health and social crisis that continues to upend their education and worsen family hardships. Most district students are from low-income Latino and Black neighborhoods that have borne the brunt of a dangerous recent surge in coronavirus infections. The move extends a modified version of the district’s “no fail” policy of the spring semester, when campuses first shut down at the onset of the coronavirus emergency. The new policy grew out of district concerns about the dramatic rise in D and F grades, a pattern that is mirrored across the country in school systems that...

    CDC Director Robert Redfield has walked back his Senate testimony that masks work better against COVID-19 than vaccines, after Donald Trump called him 'confused' and 'mistaken' and dismissed his claims a vaccine will not be available until next year.

    Nearly one in 10 city principals are likely to work remotely next year, The Post has learned. A total of 157 city school leaders — or 9 percent — have applied for COVID-19 medical exemptions to work from home, according to the Department of Education.

    ENGLAND international Maro Itoje does not believe Swing Low, Sweet Chariot should be banned at Twickenham. The Rugby Football Union are reviewing the popular anthem because of its association with slavery. 1Maro Itoje wants fans to understand the background behind the songCredit: Getty Images - Getty The song has been chanted by England fans at Twickenham for over three decades. Itoje finds it "uncomfortable" that it was first introduced to celebrate the achievements of two black wingers - Martin Offiah and Chris Oti - in the 1980s. But the Saracens star wants fans to be educated about the song's origin - rather than have it banned.
