    WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Good riddance to 2021. Let 2022 bring fresh hope. That was a common sentiment Friday as people around the world got ready to welcome in the new year. In many places, plans for New Year’s Eve celebrations were muted or cancelled for the second straight year due to a surge of coronavirus infections, this time driven by the highly contagious omicron variant. Even before omicron hit, many people were happy to say goodbye to a second grinding year of the pandemic. But so far, at least, the omicron surge hasn’t resulted in the same levels of hospitalizations and deaths as previous outbreaks — especially among vaccinated people — offering a glimmer of hope for 2022. In Japan, writer Naoki Matsuzawa said he would spend the next few days cooking and delivering food to the elderly because some stores would be closed. He said vaccinations had made people less anxious about the pandemic, despite the new variant. “A numbness has set in, and we are no longer overly afraid,” said Matsuzawa, who lives in...

    DENVER (CBS4)- The Denver Broncos kick off their 2021 season on Sunday, September 12 against the New York Giants. Entering a new season, there will always be a sense of optimism about what a team can do, but this is particularly true for the Broncos because of one big difference from last season: the health of the team. Von Miller and Kyle Fuller of the Broncos stand in the bench area during an NFL preseason game against the Los Angeles Rams at Empower Field at Mile High on Saturday. (credit: Dustin Bradford/Getty Images) With the preseason and training camp behind them, the Broncos have all 22 expected starters healthy and ready to go for their first game which is a far cry from last season when soft tissue injuries limited many players. That trend continued throughout the 2020 season as the Broncos were among the teams with the most games lost to injury in the league.

    HAD it not been for sod’s law Thomas Frank would have been meeting Brendan Rodgers this weekend as a Premier League equal. But if the Dane eventually does lead Brentford into the Premier League, it will be a fairytale to rival Leicester’s 2016 title triumph. 6Thomas Frank celebrates leading Brentford to last season's play-off final 6But Brentford's joy was to turn to despair as they suffered heartbreak in the Championship play-off final as Fulham clinched promotion to the top flight The heartbreak of losing to Fulham in August’s Championship play-off final still rankles slightly. Frank sighs: “As Brentford manager, I’ve faced Fulham four times, kept clean sheets in 90 minutes in every game and beaten them on three occasions. “And yet Joe Bryan scores their only goals against us in the space of 12 extra-time minutes at Wembley with a wonder strike and from a mistake. It’s the fine margins of football.” It is also the law of sod, Thomas. After an incredible eight-match winning streak where they swept aside all-comers including Fulham, they lost both their final league games...
    How early is too early to start drinking champagne? The world is weary after a year upended by the coronavirus pandemic, but some say the future simply must be brighter. Now, optimists on Twitter are finding faith in the month of December, seeing it as somewhat of a harbinger of better days as the countdown to New Year’s Eve begins.

    It’s not easy being in the Big Ten East. Maryland plays in arguably the second-most difficult division in FBS college football — behind the vaunted SEC West. While Michigan State is a sneaky-good program (just ask Michigan) and Indiana can light up the scoreboard with anybody, the Terps won’t realistically be competitive in the East until they can at least slow down the East’s three biggest bullies: Since 2015, they’re 0-15 against Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan while allowing 40.4 points per game to the Wolverines, 46.4 points per game to the Nittany Lions, and — GULP! — a whopping 59.6 points per game to the Buckeyes. And that doesn’t include other isolated games where they’ve coughed up 40 points to Purdue, 47 to Indiana and 54 to Nebraska. Until the Terps get better on D, they’ll never be above a C student in a highly competitive class. Last year’s defense finished 10th in the Big Ten stopping the run, 14th in containing the pass, 14th in yardage allowed and 13th in points surrendered. What gives sophomore safety Nick...
    By MAGGIE DRESSER, Flathead Beacon KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — When the height of the coronavirus pandemic first took hold last spring, forcing a nationwide shutdown, Flathead Valley seed potato farmer Steve Streich gave away 70,000 pounds of potatoes. As bars, restaurants, schools and cafeterias closed, frozen French fries began stacking up in freezers and loading docks. Unable to sell to their customers who were not operating, French fry processors immediately called their local potato growers to tell them to pump the brakes. Once potato farmers slowed down, they only needed a fraction of the seed potatoes they were purchasing from Streich’s 300-acre operation in Creston, Streich Farms. Since nearly all of Streich’s potatoes are shipped to farmers in Washington, later to become fries in restaurants and cafeterias after they are processed, Streich had nowhere to send his seed potatoes once everything shut down. “With the pandemic, we had a pretty large shakeup with potatoes in general,” Streich told the Flathead Beacon. "People quit eating in restaurants and food services and schools were shut down.” A few months ago, millions of...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade students and teachers are hoping for a better Day 3 after technical issues and a cyberattack caused problems on the first two days of the new school year. But there are no promises that the day will go any smoother. Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said Monday’s problems stemmed from the “catastrophic failure” of a Cisco software connectivity switch. He said, “the root cause was system operating hardware that ran the switch had bad code and required an upgrade.” He said they worked through the night with Cisco and the issue was resolved. Tuesday, the switch was working “fairly well.” On Tuesday, the issue was a malicious cyberattack that prevented students and teachers from logging in to their virtual platforms. Carvalho said there was an intermittent cyberattack that actually started around 8:00 a.m. Monday and continued through some of the day on Tuesday. It’s called a DDOS attack or a Distributed Denial of Service Attack. Carvalho explained the DDOS caused a critical bottleneck where no one was able to get...
