    The outbreak of new Covid variant Omicron in the province of Gauteng in South Africa has triggered the sharpest rise in hospitalisations of any previous wave, sparking concerns that a similar outbreak in the UK could overwhelm the NHS. Gauteng alone has seen over 1,000 hospital admissions in the past week, quadrupling the figure recorded just two weeks ago, while South Africa recorded a total of 1,802 hospitalisations in the past week to Friday - the latest day for which data is available.  The virus also appears to be more transmissible, with cases up from around 300 three weeks ago to nearly 7,000 on a seven-day rolling average.   Cases have soared by a massive 408 per cent in just one week while deaths rose from eight to 21 across the same time period, according to the latest figures.  The country's National Institute for Communicable Diseases recorded another 16,366 cases on Saturday, with the vast majority in epicentre Gauteng province - a 408 per cent increase from last weekend when just 3,220 new infections were registered across the previous 24 hours.  It is...

    On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks said Democrats have allowed themselves to get on the wrong side of education, even though “It’s a no-brainer” that “you’ve got to show you have room for all kinds of views in your party on that and you’re not some tool of the left.” Brooks stated that the issue is “are people from outside, or are certain teacher or education schools imposing values that we don’t agree with on us and imposing them on our kids?” He added, “And how the Democrats let themselves get on the wrong side of that issue is a bit of a mystery to me. It’s a no-brainer that people have very diverse views on gender and all this stuff. And you’ve got to show you have room for all kinds of views in your party on that and you’re not some tool of the left.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Some lovebirds looking to wed in the Big Apple are finding popping the question is the easy part, but getting the marriage license is a whole other story. Due to the pandemic, appointments are limited. Couples told CBS2’s Lisa Rozner on Monday they’re scrambling. When Sravanti Balaji scheduled her December wedding in Mexico, legally she had to get her marriage license within 60 days of that date. In September, she went online to schedule an appointment with the New York City Clerk’s Office. “There were no appointments for several weeks. Between meetings at work, I would just keep refreshing,” Balaji said. By luck, she got in when someone cancelled.

Their 2020 wedding was cancelled by the venue due to COVID-19 and now she’s on the verge of giving up on a city ceremony. “A simple piece of paper is like trying to win the lottery at this point,” Berkowitz said. “I...
    Laura Ingraham criticized the giant mess she believes was created by Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats on her Wednesday show.  She pointed to rising inflation, the plans for trillion-dollar spending, shortages, gas prices at record highs, and the declining energy independence as a few of many reasons the Biden administration is failing.  She said, "Things are falling apart because the Democrats are carrying out a vicious assault on our economy and our freedoms because they loathe our system and they love European-style socialism. To remake America they must break America." INGRAHAM: BIDEN AND FAUCI ARE QUINTESSENTIAL WASHINGTON SWAMP CREATURES Due to a series of bottlenecks in the supply chain, the U.S. is currently experiencing shortages that are expected to climb. Ingraham slammed what she called a "Turkey shortage" but lamented that there was no shortage of proverbial Turkeys in the White House. "Turkey shortages before Thanksgiving. Well, of course, the other turkeys of which there are, there's no shortage have their spin at the ready." Under all the pressure of mounting crises, Ingraham said that the media is going out...
    Days after she was banished from Twitter for a week, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene continued to spread COVID-19 disinformation, denying that hospitals are seeing a surge in COVID patients and also claiming COVID vaccines aren't working.  During a Wednesday appearance on The Water Cooler on the right-wing Real America's Voice, the Georgia Republican told host Anna Perez she had talked to hospital administrators in her district and in her state. 'Yes, the waiting rooms get full. But guess what, the waiting rooms are full of all kinds of things, not just COVID - car accidents, trauma, other illnesses, cancer and so-forth,' Greene said.  During a Wednesday appearance on The Water Cooler on the right-wing Real America's Voice, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed hospital waiting rooms are filling up with 'all kinds of things, not just COVID' She claimed that while news reports said hospitals  were 'slam-packed' with COVID, 'that's just not the case.'  'Everyone needs to get back down to common sense and remember that, you know, we're human, we can't live forever, we are going to catch all...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci said there seem to be "two kinds of America" as some people remain skeptical of COVID-19 vaccines even in the face of the more severe delta variant. The delta variant has ripped through the unvaccinated population in America, with Centers for Disease Control Director Rochelle Walensky claiming the variant is "spreading with incredible efficiency and now represents more than 83% of the virus circulating the United States."   The individuals who are hospitalized with infection are largely those who are unvaccinated – about 99% of individuals, according to Kristen Choi, an assistant professor at UCLA School of Nursing. WHERE TO FIND COVID-19 VACCINES "It's kind of like we have two kinds of America," Fauci said on CNN’s "State of the Union." "We have the very vulnerable unvaccinated part, and we have the really relatively protected vaccinated part, so if you were vaccinated, you were really in a very different category than someone who's not vaccinated." A recent poll showed that around 80% of unvaccinated Americans say that they probably will not or definitely will not get the...
    EDWARDS, Colo. (CBS4)- The high country is seeing a surge of job postings as businesses start to reopen. With a housing crunch in full swing, many employers are offering more incentives to hire and retain employees. “When the pandemic came, a lot of people left our workforce and they haven’t come back all the way, so we have more jobs than we do people to fill them and that’s why we’re seeing an increase in wages- people are trying to steal the employees that are available through higher wages, and that’s the way the marketplace works,” said Chris Romer, President and CEO of Vail Valley Partnerships.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci has been reluctant to say former President Donald Trump is the reason why the coronavirus impacted the United States so badly, but he came very close to blaming the former president for America crossing the threshold of 500,000 people now dead from the pandemic. The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases gave an interview to CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on Tuesday, who started things off by asking whether America’s political divisions led to the current body count. “Do you think that his denial and lack of facts contributed to this level of loss?” she asked. “I certainly think that that’s part of it,” Fauci said. “When you have such a common force, such a powerful force against you…you’ve got to do it together in a unifying way and not have any kind of political ideology divisiveness getting in the way of what we’re trying to do. That’s not the only thing that really was a problem, but that’s certainly in my mind, having lived through it, was something that I found really to be...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Ringing in this new year is forcing a lot of people at home to get creative during the pandemic. Some options may include going to a virtual party or concert, with a takeout meal. CBS 2’s Steven Graves is getting a gauge on how Chicago families are making it one to remember. We know it is recommended to stay at home. With that, some people feel like they’re missing out. But it means relying on old traditions and even creating new ones. For many in Chicago, the regular New Year’s Eve fireworks and festivities at Navy Pier is traded in for fun at home. It’s not easy for married couple Rick and Alexis Rosales. They moved to the city two weeks before the pandemic. “We definitely wanted to be safe and stay home. “We can’t do most of the things you’d do in a new city,” Alexis said. But no old traditions means new ones evolve. “For the holidays, starting with Thanksgiving, we’ve tried to support a new restaurant. We do a takeout, pick up order,” said...
    The 2020 presidential election is still undecided, as of this writing, and accusations about “fraud” are flying. The frustrating thing about these claims is that there is usually no way to verify them — partly because the people accused of fraud are often the same people who would have to investigate it. Democrats claimed “Russian interference” in 2016, though there turned out to be no actual “collusion,” and the actual effect of (small) Russian troll farms and alleged email hackers was difficult to determine. The sad reality is that there are already legal ways for partisan actors to interfere with the election. By far, the biggest factor in the 2020 presidential election seems to have been vote-by-mail, which is linked to six of the seven methods below. Democrats pioneered the use of vote-by-mail to turn out their own voters in a judicial election in Wisconsin in April, then went on what that New York Times called a “a virtual nationwide tour, extolling the virtues” of the system. They planned lawsuits and pressure campaigns to force key battleground states to adopt the new...
    Late starts, social distancing, reservation systems, crazy weather, fewer vendors, and mask, upon mask, upon mask — that's a good breakdown of this year's pandemic farmers' market season. But despite the changes, some things stayed the same, namely, the steadfast people who run things, the farmers who continue to grow great produce and the customers eager to get their heirloom tomatoes, organic kale and five kinds of radishes. “Kicking off this season amid a global pandemic felt as though the whole world was crashing down on us and nobody knew what to expect," says Liz Nail, co-owner of Mile High Fungi and a staple at the farmers' markets at Union Station, West Highland and South Pearl Street. "We are so grateful to have such a vibrant, supportive community that recognizes the importance of maintaining a healthy local food system.” EXPAND Croft Family Farm sells some nice-looking summer squash.

    This September 11 is different. Every year, Americans have remembered the largest terrorist attack on American soil by coming together – to read names, to pray, to hold hands.   But this year, one of the most trusted remedies for grief – togetherness – is not available because of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic. In New York City, even the twin columns of light that traditionally shine into the Manhattan sky on the anniversary will not appear this year. A spokesman for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum told the New York Times that the decision was made in order to avoid the health risks of a crew of nearly 40 people working closely together to install the lights.  One could argue that the pandemic, like 9/11, has changed everything.  FILE - Spectators look across the Hudson River from Jersey City, N.J., at the Sept. 11 tribute lights in New York City on the 18th anniversary of the attacks on the twin towers of the World Trade Center, Sept. 11, 2019.Seven months into social distancing and stay-at-home orders, long...

    Sleep Standard is offering people a decent amount of money to simply have sex on different kinds of mattresses. According to Men’s Health, the sleep website is offering $3,000 to people to have sex on different mattresses and then review them. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes) A description on the Sleep Standard website explains, “We’re looking for 5 lucky couples that can take part in our experiment.

    Anal penetration devices There are also dildos designed for the male anatomy, somewhat smaller and curved, to find the misnamed ‘G-spot’, where the prostate is located, which provides great pleasure in men. In the same way, women also have the option of exploring their anal sexuality with devices specially made for it. If you are part of a homosexual couple, or you want to try anal sexual stimulation alone or with a partner, such a sex toy can open many possibilities for enjoyment. Dilators If you are starting in anal sex, a great help may be anal dilators. Anal sex is a delicate practice that requires careful anus work to perform painless dilation. For this, the sex toy market offers dilators of different sizes and soft designs, to perform this stimulation carefully and progressively. Other erotic games Outside of the sexual apparatus itself, there are all kinds of toys to enhance sexual desire, alone or with a partner. From all kinds of costumes, handcuffs and items that help create sexual fantasies, to lubricants of all kinds,...
    Donald Trump’s tweet the week before last that the 75-year old man who was shoved to the ground by police in Buffalo and wound up in the intensive care unit “could be an ANTIFA provocateur” was just one latest example of Trump’s use of language to demonize others. His call a week earlier that “when the looting starts the shooting starts” not merely glorifies violence, as Twitter noted. It predictably creates conditions that lead to violence. It is all part of a predictable pattern. I am a communication and leadership professor and have spent the last 18 months carefully studying Trump’s language in preparing for a forthcoming book. I have documented 12 kinds of communication that have historically preceded acts of violence against groups, critics or rivals — and that have led to civil unrest. Trump uses all 12 forms. These include: Dehumanizing a group: He dehumanizes groups: Mexicans, Muslims, migrants. He calls them animals and says their presence among us is an “infestation.” Demonizing a rival or critic: He tells four congresswomen of color to go back to where they came from; all are...
    New York (CNN Business)As the US reopens in phases, more and more jobs are being added back to the economy. Unemployment officially fell to 13.3% in May as employers added 2.5 million jobs, the best month for job growth since the Bureau of Labor Statistics started tracking the data in 1939.The Labor Department noted that during the pandemic, millions of workers were misclassified as "employed but not at work," when they should have been counted as "unemployed on temporary layoff." If it weren't for those misclassifications, the unemployment rate would have been higher — around 19.2% in April and 16.1% in May, not including seasonal adjustments.From retail to restaurants across America, people are returning to their old jobs or finding new ones.
