    Jose Luis Pelaez Inc | DigitalVision | Getty Images If you have a flexible savings account for health-care expenses, it's probably worth checking whether any of that money is on the verge of disappearing. An estimated $1 billion in those accounts could be forfeited in 2022, according to an estimate from FSAstore.com. Some forfeitures could happen soon, due to a March 15 deadline at companies that have a 2.5-month grace period for spending the previous year's unused FSA funds. "We're concerned that if workers don't understand their deadlines … they're going to forfeit money," said Rachel Rouleau, vice president of compliance for Health-E Commerce, parent company of FSAstore.com.

    The Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G phone is presented at the hall of Samsung at the IFA consumer tech fair in Berlin, Germany, September 6, 2019.Hannibal Hanschke | Reuters BARCELONA - The vast majority of new smartphones on display at this year's Mobile World Congress — an event that tech giants use to showcase their latest handsets — looked remarkably similar to the rectangular slabs we're accustomed to. But there were a handful with a difference. These were folding phones — or flip phones — which appear to be making something of a comeback roughly two decades after the style first hit the market.VIDEO2:1202:12World leaders should really be focusing on climate, not war: Nokia CEOMobile World Congress"We're starting to see the emergence of foldable devices," CCS Insight Chief Analyst Ben Wood told CNBC, adding that more are on the way.

    Michelin is set to take the tire market by storm after announcing that it has been working with General Motors on developing airless tires that will be modeled and sold on the next-generation Chevrolet Bolt electric car in the next three to five years. The revolutionary invention from the French tire-maker could mark the decline of over 130 years of traditionally refilling air in regular car tires. Its design will rely on flexible ribs to spring into action, similar to the way pneumatic tires work. If a car's tire tread is pierced, then it would make little-to-no difference due to the tire not holding any air and its sides being completely open.  'We want to bring the next generation of the Chevrolet Bolt with airless tires,' Alexis Garcin, president of Michelin North America told CNN Business, 'and it's going to happen now in the next three to five years.'  General Motors (GM) plans to restart its Chevrolet Bolt production on April 4, the company confirmed on Tuesday after recalling its entire fleet for the car model in August due to...

    DjelicS | E+ | Getty Images If you still have money in your flexible spending account, be aware that you may have only another week or so to spend it. Congressional action loosened FSA rules for 2020 and 2021 as a way to give workers more time to spend unused funds, yet many companies did not adopt the temporary changes. This means you could face a Dec. 31 deadline to use any remaining money or lose it.  If you're unsure, "figure out what your plan specifically is doing or not doing," said Preston Farrington, CEO of Health-E Commerce, parent company of FSAstore.com. "See if you received any emails from your benefits provider or your employer," Farrington said. "Or you can check your [online] benefits portal or with your HR department."

    Fox News contributor Dr. Marty Makary called out New York Governor Kathy Hochul after she issued a state of emergency for the state over the new omicron variant.  NIH DIR. COLLINS: COVID VACCINES WILL 'MOST LIKELY' PROTECT AGAINST OMICRON VARIANT, BUT TOO SOON TO TELL DR. MARTY MAKARY: Elective surgery is not binary. It’s still very important to do elective surgery. Hip replacements, aortic aneurisms repair, cancerous sections. So when we stop elective surgery it has massive implications for health. And by the way, I think what’s driving a lot of that is just the staffing shortages that people are not willing to admit are from a non-flexible vaccine mandate. If it were a little flexible to account for natural immunity and some other exemptions, we wouldn’t have these massive walkouts that we’re having now and chemotherapy shortages nationwide. But, if we’re gonna have a halt on elective surgeries in New York because of a theoretical variant that may evade immunity, which is highly unlikely by the way, we’re gonna be in this thing in perpetuity because variants will form...
    Getty Images If you heard that the rules for flexible spending accounts are more generous this year, it's true. Just don't count on being able to take advantage of them. While congressional legislation expanded certain aspects of both health-care and dependent-care FSAs for 2020 and 2021, it's up to employers whether to adopt the provisions. With many companies holding open enrollment for employee benefit plans around this time of year, it's worth checking to see what your employer is (or isn't) doing before deciding how much to contribute next year.

    FORMULA ONE bosses have opened the door to more flexible race start times to ensure severe weather does not impact future Grands Prix. Last month's Belgian GP was controversially run for just two laps under the safety car, due to endless downpours over Spa. 1Fans were disappointed by the rain-ruined Belgian Grand PrixCredit: Alamy The Formula 3 season decider was then moved back a day at last weekend's race in Russia, amid predictions of heavy rain. Race director Michael Masi has stated that discussions will be held in the coming weeks about making race start times more flexible. But he refused to admit that these are a reaction to the Spa debacle, with the F3 move not solely decided by himself. On how start times are formulated, Masi said: "I think it’s something that we’re going to be discussing in the coming weeks. "We said following Spa that there’s obviously a whole lot of strategic discussions that need to take place between the FIA, F1 and the ten teams, and that’s going to be one of the discussions at...

    Sarah Ferguson  has described her former mother-in-law the Queen as more of a mother to her than her own while speaking on a podcast.  The Duchess of York, 61, who divorced the Duke of York in 1996, has sparked a raft of royal scandals over the years, but said the monarch was her 'greatest mentor' and had always believed in her.  Speaking on the Tea with Twiggy podcast as she promoted her Mills & Boon romance novel Her Heart For A Compass, the duchess paid tribute to the Queen for being 'modern, flexible and forgiving.' Sarah compared their relationship to the one she had with her own mother Susan Barrantes, who passed away in September 1998, saying: 'I think to myself that honestly my mother-in-law has been more of a mother to me than my mother.' Her comments come days after she joined her ex-husband Prince Andrew at Balmoral to spend time with the Queen.  Sarah Ferguson, 61, has described the Queen, 95, as more of a mother to her than her own was while speaking on a podcast  ...

    BEIJING, Jul 31 (.) – China will maintain prudent, flexible and selective monetary policy in the second half of the year, its central bank said on Saturday, as it seeks to support growth while keeping the digital economy in check. The Chinese economy has seen a strong rebound after the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the latest data suggests that progress is waning. Factory activity in July grew at the slowest pace since February 2020, when the impact of lockdowns to control the coronavirus pandemic was first felt. New export orders have contracted for three consecutive months. Regulatory actions taken by China for months against a number of private companies have also left tech startups and tech startups that have been operating for decades in a new and uncertain environment. The People’s Bank of China (PBOC), in a statement posted on its website on Saturday after a meeting on its priorities for the second half, called for “rectifying” e-commerce and other technologies and said it would “maintain high pressure” on those that speculate with digital currencies. China will focus...

    THERE’S nothing glamorous about a toilet brush, but this cleaning fanatic has found a bog brush that’s super hygienic and easily stored - and it comes in pink. The cleaning enthusiast shared a clip of her new, silicone loo brush, and viewers can’t wait to try it for themselves. 3The brush has a totally new, more hygienic designCredit: Tiktok / @cleanwithabbi Mum-of-two and Tiktok user Abbi shared the video, showing exactly why her new toilet brush is a game changer. In the clip, she shows that the brush is made of silicone, so the bristles are more spaced out and smoother than a standard toilet brush, meaning that the product is far easier to clean. It’s also a flatter design and it’s totally flexible, so it can get into nooks and crannies. In a follow-up video, Abbi also explains that the brush can be stuck up on the bathroom wall, meaning your bathroom will look less cluttered. 3It can even be stuck on the bathroom wallCredit: Tiktok / @cleanwithabbi 3The brush head is flexible for better reachCredit: Tiktok / @cleanwithabbi...
    More On: ufc Jake Paul knockout was ‘f–king embarrassing’ for ex-UFC fighter Conor McGregor blasts UFC dopers while posting ‘animal’ training video Robert Whittaker dominates in UFC win UFC main event more evenly matched than odds suggest Jessica Andrade comes from the tail end of a different era in women’s MMA. Back when she broke into the sport, the UFC would not schedule women’s fights. Heck, most took fights in whatever division they could, often fighting the bulk of their careers a division or two up in weight than would be ideal. So as odd as it may look that Andrade spent more than half of her career competing at 135 pounds before dropping all the way to 115 and rising to become the champion, that’s all she could do when the 125-pound women’s weight class wasn’t available in the UFC at the time of her division switch.  That’s different today, of course, as Andrade (21-8, 15 finishes) readies for her first flyweight championship challenge against Valentina Shevchenko in one of three title fights on Saturday for UFC 261...
    It should come as no surprise that it’s taken me this long to get an ergonomic chair for working from home. It took me eight months into the pandemic, but I finally got myself a cushion to make the kitchen chair I had been working from a little more comfortable. So, it’s only fitting that it’s taken me an entire year to get a new chair. And it’s not just any chair — it’s a stylish, flexible chair called the Noho Move Chair. This chair isn’t the silhouette or material you might picture when hearing that it’s ergonomic, which is a good thing since this would be sitting smack dab in the middle of my living room. Instead of a traditional office chair-style, this chair actually looks a lot like the kitchen chair I swapped it out for. It has a sloped back and angled, modern legs (not wheels) to support it. The main part of the chair is made from recycled plastic from fishing nets, with an interlocking, almost mesh-like texture. If you don’t like this, you can even...
    More than two months after starting to vaccinate in nursing homes, data shows that immunization of the elderly is working. This has led to this Thursday the Government and the communities have decided to relax the rules of visits, activities or precautions in these institutions, although also warning that “the risk does not disappear completely” even if the vaccine has already been supplied. The Public Health Commission that has agreed on the plan for Holy Week this Thursday has also adapted the measures in nursing homes and other social service centers and as a first measure contemplates that “residents, workers and family members must be informed that, although there is a significantly lower risk after vaccination, it does not disappear completely since the vaccine does not guarantee total protection to all vaccinated people ”. In any case, the general directors of Health have agreed to allow group activities in the residences, the use of common areas and “make the visiting and outing regime more flexible after an individualized assessment of each resident and each center.” Unlike what happened at...
    The Community of Madrid celebrates four days this Sunday with a curfew at 11:00 pm and the flexible closure of the hotel and catering establishments. These restrictions were lowered last Thursday, after almost a month in force, due to the improvement that the region had experienced in epidemiological and healthcare indicators, as justified by the regional government at the time. The truth is that the Executive will have to review the measures again this week, since the scenario that came into effect last Thursday was only dictated until March 1. The Ministry of Health will reexamine the data on the evolution of the pandemic this week and will probably announce on Friday if it maintains the curfew at 11:00 p.m. or executes any change in light of the trend of infections. It will be the time of limitation of night mobility that determines the opening of bars and restaurants in the region, which in recent days have welcomed the flexibility of the measures because it allows them to provide a more complete dinner service. The Community of Madrid has...

    President Biden told House Democrats in a phone call Wednesday he's still committed to pursuing a large COVID relief package even as Senate Republicans are pushing him for a much smaller, more targeted relief bill, but he also expressed a willingness to negotiate. "You have my back, I'll have yours," the president said, according to sources on the call.   Mr. Biden met with Republican senators on Monday to hear their proposal for a $600 COVID relief package, roughly a third of the size of the $1.9 trillion package the White House crafted. While the two plans have similar dollar figures allocated for a national vaccination program, testing, and disaster relief, the administration wants to spend more on unemployment insurance, stimulus checks, and aid to state and local governments, among other things.   Mr. Biden did not mention the GOP's plan during his call Wednesday, sources on the call told CBS News. He expressed a willingness to be flexible about some of the numbers but believes his plan meets the country's current needs.  "The biggest danger isn't that we go...

    DEVON, Pa. (CBS) — Voters in the suburbs of Pennsylvania are playing a crucial role in this year’s presidential election as the commonwealth is a key battleground state.

    President Donald Trump told former Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren that the Republican Party has a number of options for changing the look of its presidential nominating convention next month if the Covid-19 pandemic continues to spread: “We’re very flexible.” In an interview for her program Full Court Press, Van Susteren pressed the president on the party’s response to the ominous pandemic situation in Florida, where coronavirus cases have skyrocketed in recent weeks. After North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper refused to guarantee that he would allow a full arena to attend Trump’s renomination speech, the GOP relocated the more prominent speeches and primetime TV events to Jacksonville. However, that city has been one of the biggest outbreak areas in Florida, experiencing a wave of emergency rooms admissions for Covid-19 as the city’s home country, Duval reported nearly 800 new daily cases just before the 4th of July weekend. As a result, the Department Health and Human Services announced on Tuesday that it was dispatching a temporary surge testing effort to Jacksonville, one of just three hotspots in the nation. “If the numbers...
    President Donald Trump signaled that he would be “flexible” about holding the Republican National Convention in Jacksonville, Florida, if coronavirus cases continue to rise across the state. “It really depends on the timing,” Trump said in an interview with Gray Television’s Greta Van Susteren. “Look, we’re very flexible. We can do a lot of things, but we’re very flexible.” Earlier this month, the Republican National Committee announced that most of the party’s convention, including Trump’s speech accepting the nomination, would take place in Jacksonville the week of Aug. 24. COVID-19 cases have been increasing across Florida. “When we signed a few weeks ago, it looked good,” Trump said in the interview. “And now all of a sudden it’s spiking up a little but ... that’s going to go down.” The convention had earlier been set for Charlotte, North Carolina, but the governor of that state declined to meet Trump’s demands to loosen safeguards against the virus. Several GOP senators have said they are skipping the convention, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he will attend. Senator Alexander joined Grassley in...

They have lightweight, non-slip rubber soles and removable, washable insoles so you don't have to wear...
    Coronavirus — The Ministry of Education has modified two of the recommendations for the return to classrooms that this Tuesday, together with the Ministry of Education, had been included in a document for the autonomous communities. The document was divided into three main blocks: limitation of contacts, personal prevention measures, cleaning and ventilation, and case management. The most important change has to do with bubble groups. At first it was envisaged that each one had a maximum of 20 students (ideally 15) who only interacted with each other. Now, at the request of the autonomous communities, the maximum number may vary and be higher “As long as the community health authority authorizes it.” The other change is related to the use of masks: in the first document, it was indicated that from primary school all students had to wear one if the distance of 1.5 meters could not be maintained, except within the bubble group. In addition, in school transport, from the age of six, it would also be compulsory. Now, the Ministry of Education has said that for...
    A diverse diet and flexible behaviour allowed a type of ‘land fish’ to make a dramatic transition out of the water, a new study shows. Australian scientists pooled data on hundreds of different species of blennies – a diverse family of fish, some of which are aquatic and others that have left the water completely. Some species of blenny – which typically has a slim and almost eel-like body – made their dramatic transition out of the water millions of years ago. While being a 'jack of all trades' allowed these species to make the journey onto land, they’ve been forced themselves to become specialised to survive. This has led to noticeable physical changes in their evolution, such as teeth suited to scraping rocks for morsels and mottled skin to help blend in with rocks and hide from predators.  The Kirk's blenny (Alticus kirkii) is a species of combtooth blenny. Kirk's blennies are found around the Indian Ocean, inhabit waters near the shore and often spend time out of the water.
