    SOLANO COUNTY (BCN/CBS SF) — Solano County Sheriff Thomas A. Ferrara said this week that federal law enforcement officials found no evidence that his employees “are members of any extremist organizations” after an investigative report by the online news site Open Vallejo this past February found several sheriff deputies displayed support for an antigovernment militia movement.

    ROME – A top official at the European Medicines Agency says there is a causal link between AstraZeneca's coronavirus vaccine and rare blood clots, but that it's unclear what the connection is and the benefits of taking the vaccine still outweigh the risks of getting COVID-19. Marco Cavaleri, head of health threats and vaccine strategy at the Amsterdam-based agency, told Rome's Il Messaggero newspaper on Tuesday that the EU medicines regulator is preparing to make a more definitive statement on the topic this week. Based on the evidence to date, Cavaleri said there's a clear association between the AstraZeneca vaccine and the dozens of rare blood clots that have been reported worldwide amid the tens of millions of vaccine jabs that have been given out.

    Professor Neil Ferguson, an epidemiologist at Imperial College London and SAGE adviser, suggested AstraZeneca's coronavirus vaccine may not be suitable for young people AstraZeneca's coronavirus vaccine may not be suitable for young people if its link to blood clots is proven to be true, one of No10's top scientific advisers suggested today. 'Professor Lockdown' Neil Ferguson said older and middle-aged groups should 'very much' get the vaccine because the threat of coronavirus far outweighs the risk of the clots, thought to affect just one in 600,000 people given the jab (0.00017 per cent). But the SAGE epidemiologist, 53, who himself has had AstraZeneca's jab, said the balance of risk is 'slightly more complicated' when younger people who are less vulnerable to the virus are considered. The risk of blood clots from the vaccine may prove to be higher in younger age groups. British scientists say the risk of dying of Covid...

    Rep. Tom Emmer of Minnesota revealed the GOP’s efforts to link the Democratic Party to socialism and add women and minorities to the party in order to win back a House majority in 2022, The Hill reported. Emmer, the GOP’s campaign chief, said the Republican Party is strategizing to defeat Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections by labeling their agendas as socialist and targeting their latest legislative agendas that do not receive bipartisan support. House Republicans are planning to add more women and minorities to the party. “Nancy Pelosi and her socialist agenda are the most unpopular thing going on in this country, and it’s going to cost them their majority on their side,” Emmer told The Hill. The Democrats will suffer consequences in the midterm election for refraining from in-person learning, stripping thousands of jobs by ending the Keystone Pipeline, and tax hikes, Emmer told The Hill. He said...
    Drug regulators at the European Medicines Agency concluded that the AstraZeneca vaccine is safe and effective following investigations into possible links between the shot and cases of fatal blood clotting in patients who were vaccinated. Emer Cooke, the agency's executive director, said Thursday that "the vaccine is not associated with an increase in the overall risk of thrombotic events or blood clots." GERMANY JOINS COUNTRIES SUSPENDING USE OF ASTRAZENECA COVID-19 VACCINE AMID REPORTS OF FATAL BLOOD CLOTS The agency declared that the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks but cautioned that regulators “cannot rule out definitively a link” to a "small number of cases of rare and unusual but very serious clotting disorders."

    LONDON (Reuters) - There is a lot of reassuring evidence that suggests there is no increased risk of blood clots from AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine, England's deputy chief medical officer said, adding he expected the European Medicines Agency to agree. "Behind the scenes, there is a lot of work going on to look at whether there is a signal in relation to what we call venous thrombo-embolic events - clots," Jonathan Van-Tam said at a news conference on Wednesday. "And there's a lot of evidence emerging now that is reassuring that there is no overall excess signal or increased risk. And I expect, without prejudice to their absolute findings, those to be the final conclusions of the EMA and (Britain's) MHRA in due course."

    Neil Woodford, Woodford Investment Management.Woodford Investment Management LONDON — Neil Woodford, the former U.K. star stockpicker whose investment firm collapsed in 2019, has said "sorry" to investors for losses as he shared plans to make a comeback with a new business.  Woodford said in an interview with The Telegraph, published Saturday, that he was "very sorry for what I did wrong."  The fund manager also announced that he would be launching a new investment firm, Woodford Capital Management Partners, in Jersey. The firm will reportedly only raise money from professional investors and will focus on the biotech sector, British biosciences and health care.  Backing riskier early-stage and unlisted companies in these areas, compounded with poor performance from other stock picks, was what led to a wave of investor redemptions from the Woodford Equity Income Fund. This resulted in the suspension and eventual winding up of the fund, which forced the...
    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is taking too long to assess the safety of blood pressure drugs that may contain traces of a known carcinogen, potentially endangering patients who have long relied on the medication to treat hypertension, according to a consumer watchdog group. The FDA in March said it would temporarily increase allowable levels of the chemical in question, called nitrosamine, in so-called sartan drugs while it conducted a six-month investigation into their their possible toxicity. Since then, the agency has evaluated only 26% of blood pressure drugs on the market, the U.S. Public Interest Research Group said Thursday in an analysis of publicly available FDA data.  "Americans expect their blood pressure medication to treat their conditions, not cause cancer," said Adam Garber of U.S. PIRG. "The FDA has an obligation to meet its own self-imposed safety timeline to ensure that the millions of patients who need these drugs aren't...
    Norway said Monday no link had been established between Pfizer-BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine and any post-vaccination deaths in the country, but recommended doctors consider the overall health of the most frail before giving them the shot. Since the start of Norway's vaccination campaign at the end of December, the country has registered 33 deaths among elderly people who have received their first dose, according to public health authorities. "The reports suggest that common adverse reactions to mRNA vaccines, such as fever and nausea, may have contributed to worsening of their underlying diseases and a fatal outcome in some frail patients," the Norwegian Medicines Agency told CBS News' Steve Berriman. "The patients died from their underlying disease." Of the 13 cases analyzed in detail so far, "they are people of advanced age, are frail and have serious illnesses, all of them," the director of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, Camilla Stoltenberg,...
    WASHINGTON — House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called for Rep.

    Pfizer Inc said it is working on a new form of its experimental coronavirus vaccine that can be stored in the refrigerator. Currently, the vials, which use messenger RNA - or part of the virus's genetic code - have to be stored between -94F (-70C) and -112F (-80C). In an event held by the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations, on Tuesday, CEO Albert Bourla are developing a vaccine that does not need to be kept at freezing temperatures. 'We are working also on a new formulation that will be able to avoid the -70 and can be stored in simple refrigeration,' he said.

    A Friday report from NBC News claimed that Donald Trump is threatening to veto legislation due to the inclusion of a bipartisan provision to rename military bases named after Confederate leaders. According to intelligence analyst and author Eric Garland, the possible veto is motivated by a different factor. “Because one of the provisions of the omnibus bill will expose offshore Russian Mob money laundering,” Garland tweeted of the threat. “So of course he will. Has nothing to do with Robert E. Lee.” “MOB IDIOTS FROM QUEENS DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE CIVIL WAR. BUT THEY CARE ABOUT HOW TO LAUNDER MOB CASH,” he added. The military defense bill — the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) — is centered around 2021 defense priorities. It also includes funding for female-specific body armor and uniforms, a pay raise for troops, and money to support quality of life for service members and their families....
    VIENNA (Reuters) - Austrian police made 30 arrests in more than 60 raids on Monday as part of an anti-terrorism operation, but there was no link to a deadly attack in Vienna a week ago in which a convicted jihadist killed four people, prosecutors said. Austria has formally remanded in custody 10 suspects in connection with the attack by a 20-year-old gunman who had previously been convicted of trying to join Islamic State in Syria. Police shot him dead minutes after he opened fire on bars and bystanders in central Vienna. Monday's raids on apartments, houses, businesses and association premises in four Austrian provinces targeted people suspected of belonging to or supporting the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, the prosecutors' office in the southern city of Graz said. "The suspicion is of belonging to a terrorist organisation, financing terrorism, association against the state, criminal organisation and money...

That’s kind of one of the fun things about it is I like to see if people go deeper than just thinking that it’s about getting drunk and doing that kind of thing.” The song is part of an as-yet-unreleased three-track EP and is actually about love, and the overwhelming need for it.

    LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump offered to pardon Julian Assange if the WikiLeaks founder provided the source for the hacking of Democratic National Committee emails before the 2016 U.S. presidential election, a London court was told on Friday. Assange’s lawyer, Jennifer Robinson, said she observed a meeting where former Republican U.S. Representative Dana Rohrabacher and Charles Johnson, an associate known to have close ties to the Trump campaign, made the offer. "The proposal put forward by Congressman Rohrabacher was that Mr. Assange identify the source for the 2016 election publications in return for some form of pardon," Robinson said in a witness statement given to the court. Australian-born Assange, 49, is fighting to stop being sent to the United States, where he is charged with conspiring to hack government computers and violating an espionage law over the release of confidential cables by WikiLeaks in 2010-2011.
