Subscribe to our print magazine.Roe is dead. In the coming weeks, abortion will be banned in 13 states with trigger laws, and 13 more are likely to severely restrict or end abortion access. As my colleague Becca Andrews said earlier this week, it’s not an exaggeration to say “the sky is falling.” While a post-Roe world is now the reality nationwide, it’s already been reality in Oklahoma; in May, Republican Gov. Kevin Stitt signed a bill that bans abortion at fertilization and the bill went into effect immediately. Even before the bill, access in Oklahoma was dire, impacted drastically by patients fleeing Texas’ SB 8, which banned abortion at six weeks. When the Texas bill went into effect, the University of Texas at Austin found that 45 percent of patients unable to get abortions in the state traveled to Oklahoma. But now, those Texans and Oklahomans are traveling to other states, including Kansas. In fact, Kansas shares three borders with states likely or...

    BOSTON (CBS) – President Joe Biden warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s next escalation could be a direct cyberattack against the United States. So how can individuals and businesses protect themselves against the possibility? “The magnitude of Russia’s cyber capacity is fairly consequential,” President Biden said this week. “And it’s coming.” John Hammond, a threat analyst for Huntress Labs, told CBS News Boston that the comments are “a bit of a scare,” but said it’s a critical message to get across. “This doesn’t come as quite a surprise, but it is in my mind a good thing to see this proactive messaging,” Hammond said. President Biden wants companies, federal agencies, and individuals to shore up their cybersecurity. Hammond said that really comes down to the basics. “I wish I could come and say some groundbreaking new hot thing to bring a solution to folks. Ultimately this boils down to the barebone basics and cybersecurity hygiene. It sounds so trite when you hear cybersecurity professionals say this over and over again, but the reason we do is it’s the best thing...

Children clutched red carnations and candles, placing them beside a series of stark portraits running along the wall. The black-and-white images showed young and old faces: Ivan Horodniuk, 29, choreographer; Vladysym Zubenko, 22, railway worker; Bohdan Kalyniak, 52, entrepreneur; Antonina Dvoretska, 62, pensioner.

    NEW YORK, NY -- Did you know screen time can cause issues such as headaches, fatigue, blurry vision, dry eyes and more? It's called digital eye strain. "Your eye muscles are working harder to focus on images much closer" said Dr. Jennifer Tsai, optometrist and founder of Line of Sight.The real problem is that digital eye strain will likely affect the majority of people in time."In 10 years, half of the world's population will be nearsighted." As if we needed another worldwide worry. Personally, I noticed my vision getting blurry when looking at my screens toward the end of the day. I would notice rings of lights around images when editing. My friend Lataya, also an editor and producer, noticed the same issues.I thought I could combat the issue by myself with blue light blocker glasses, but it turns out I needed a little more help than that. So Lataya and I went to Line of Sight to get a full consultation. Dr. Tsai brings a lifestyle approach to eye care. She gets an idea of your day-to-day life and...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Mac Jones grew up in Jacksonville. He played collegiately at Alabama. He claims he’s played in some cold weather in his life, but what he’s about to embark on over the next month-plus is likely different from anything he’s ever experienced. The rookie, though, isn’t spending much time worrying about the weather. “I think just take each day day-by-day and try not to focus on it too much and just wear whatever you’re supposed to wear and take the advice from the older people that have played a lot in the cold. Just trying to figure it out,” Jones said this week when asked how he intends to handle the frigid temperatures. “It’s just another challenge, but you just have to look at it positively, like as if it was raining or really windy or whatever the situation is. It’s football, and you’re going to have days where it’s cold and days where it’s windy and days when it’s raining, so you have to be ready for all situations.” The temperatures were in the mid-to-low 30s for practice on Wednesday, which...

After a couple extended sabbaticals, he came back into the league last year at 32 years old and consistently manhandled whatever kind of coverage defenses threw at him: man (75.9% success rate in getting open), zone (82.7%), press (70.5%), it didn't matter.

So when you do eventually pin down a date that all your girls can do, you naturally want to take a photo to mark the momentous occasion. 2Can YOU spot the editing fail here?Credit: Tik Tok While they were enjoying a few drinks earlier this month, one group of women decided to pose for a quick photo which they could then share on the 'gram. But before it was ready to be posted, it naturally had to be approved by every member of the group.

    Q: We were due to close the sale of our home a week ago. The buyers are late getting a loan in place. In fact, we were all waiting for the buyers’ loan documents to be sent to escrow. Instead the buyer’s loan officer called our listing agent and asked if she had heard from the homebuyers or their agent? This sent shock waves through our side of the transaction. We had six other ready, willing and able buyers ready to purchase our home. It turns out the first-time homebuyers were uploading documents to their loan officer. Unfortunately, they also uploaded our seller disclosures and one to two inspection reports. As a result, the underwriters at the buyer’s bank insisted on seeing all the other reports and inspections referenced in our seller questionnaires. Upon seeing the termite, property, roof and chimney inspection reports, the bank underwriters and their supervisor(s) demanded that we make all the repairs before the close of escrow.  In the meantime, the buyers are applying at another bank for a home loan. We already granted a seven-day...

Here's everything you need to know about the bizarre natural phenomenon... 2 The flying ant invasion occurs when they set off on their 'nuptial flight'Credit: iStockphoto What is Flying Ant Day? A flying ant day usually occurs when a spell of wet weather is followed by hot humid weather. Although referred to as a day, the mating ritual can last for several weeks in high summer. By the end, billions of ants will have taken to the skies. What are flying ants? The most common type of flying ant is the black garden variety (the Lasius niger), whose nests have a single queen and anything from 5,000 to 15,000 workers. Workers are the ants you see during most of the year, collecting food. While workers, who are all female, live for around a month, queens can live for over 10 years. They spend most of their lives in their nest - only leaving for the "nuptial flight" as immature queens to...

But, this July has been anything but typical. Through just one week, Boston has more than 5” of rain, the second-most on record for July 1-7 (just shy of July 1915).  It has rained on five of the first six days and there are more showers/storms in the forecast for Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.

    The term “lab animals” often conjures up images of white rabbits and mice or rats. While most people might not know the specifics of what animals are used for in experiments, they are somehow comfortable with knowing these rodents are subjected to life in a lab. Well, we could only wish that these animals were ever only tasked with completing mazes in exchange for cheese, but sadly this isn’t the case. There are over 100 million animals subjected to painful cosmetic and pharmaceutical tests in the U.S. every year. If that came as a shock, what if we told you that a portion of those animals isn’t rats or rabbits, but dogs? Pretty crazy right? Well, unfortunately, this is reality. According to the American Anti-Vivisection Society, between 70,000 and 75,000 dogs are used for research in the United States each year.

    National College Decision Day arrives this year on Saturday, May 1. With the pandemic still lingering, many parents may wonder what college life will look like in the fall. Just over a year ago, students anticipated receiving college acceptance letters with the expectation of participating in a vibrant on-campus experience. As COVID-19 cases surged and the world shut down, many students had to face the reality of experiencing their first college classes from home or in their dorm rooms. During the fall of 2020, only 4% of colleges returned to fully in-person classes according to The Chronicle of Higher Education. However, early into 2021, with the increase of vaccine production and growing knowledge of COVID-19, universities across the country are announcing their plans to reopen in the fall. In short, many colleges are taking steps toward normalcy. Although we are still months away from the start of the 2021 fall semester, here’s what parents can expect from colleges and universities.

    WITH most coronavirus restrictions still in place, Mother’s Day 2021 will be like no other. But can Brits still visit their mothers on March 14, and what exactly are the rules? 3Mother’s Day 2021 will be like no otherCredit: Getty Images - Getty Can I see my mum for Mother's Day?  On Sunday March 14, a lot of lockdown restrictions will still be enforced, but there are still some ways you can see your mum. The government’s advice to ‘stay at home’ will still be in place, but there is some socialising allowed within the rules. From March 8 a one-plus-one rule will apply. This means that Brits can meet one other person from a different household for a coffee or a picnic outside. This means children can meet their mother’s on the big day for a stroll in a park. However, social distancing guidelines must still be followed. But if your mother is in a nursing home, you could be allowed to hold hands. As part of the government’s roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions, care home residents will be...
    (CNN)The acting chief of the US Capitol Police department acknowledged command and intelligence failures the day insurrectionists stormed the Capitol, but dodged questions from lawmakers trying to understand how the request for an increased budget would address those failures. Leaders of the department responsible for protecting Capitol Hill and federal legislators reevaluated their funding needs in the wake of the insurrection and asked for a 21% increase over last year's funding, from $512 million to $619 million. Acting Chief Yogananda Pittman, who took over the department after her predecessor resigned, testified before one of the US House of Representatives committees that oversees the police force on Wednesday morning. Other than her testimony, Pittman hasn't provided information about the day's events or changes to departmental operations in the two months since the attack. She's held no press conferences. She also testified to a need for money to fund, among other things, an increase in the number of officers available to work as "dignitary protection" and in analyzing intelligence.

So, if you have had enough of winter this year, no need to wait for the vernal equinox on March 20, just join us scientists and celebrate today! Why the difference in seasons? Meteorologists and climatologists group their seasons into three months each.

Astronomical winter is based solely on the rotation of the Earth around the Sun with the equinoxes and solstices marking the beginning of the seasons.

Hundreds of students lined up for their first day of in-person class in nearly a year. “They will practice routine like keeping distance when they are exiting [and] entering their classrooms, doing hand washing demos inside their classrooms, looking at how distanced their desks are,” said Tanja Jarrell, Paso Verdes’ principal. Students are divided into cohorts “A” and “B” to stagger class time. They will do distance learning two days a week as the district transitions back. “Next week, March 1, we’ll have...
    SUMMER holidays may be able to go ahead this year as MPs are "increasingly optimistic" about trips abroad. A popular destination which is likely to invite Brits back this year is Greece - here is everything you need to know about travelling to the destination. 2Holidays to Greece may be able to go ahead this yearCredit: Getty Images - Getty Can I travel to Greece right now?

    PANCAKE Day is nearly upon us and is the perfect opportunity to get your flipping skills at the ready. But what do we celebrate the occasion in the first place, and what activities can you do to make it special? 3Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday marks the start of LentCredit: Getty Images - Getty Why do we have a pancake day? Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is arguably the best part of Easter celebrations for many of us foodies. Pancake Day, Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras is a Christian festival that marks the beginning of Lent, a period of fasting that is meant to remind us of Jesus' time he was tempted by the devil in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights before his death. In French-speaking places it is often called Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) and refers to events of the Carnival celebration, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany (Three Kings Day) and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday. Shrove comes from the old English word "shrive", which means "to obtain absolution for...
    FEB 14th is a day of love, with Valentine's Day gifts often consisting of sweet cards, moody red roses and cuddly teddy bears. But one woman is fuming with the card her husband got her, admitting his last-minute attempt to woo her is not ok and that he should have made more effort. 3The man popped out to grab his wife a Valentine's Day card but the sweet gesture upset herCredit: Mumsnet While he certainly meant well - popping out to the store to pick up a card for his wife - the woman took particular aim at the design on the front of the card. It read 'handsome fiancé', and most suited for an engaged woman buying for her future husband - not a husband buying for his wife. Wondering if she was being unreasonable, she shared her concerns on Mumsnet, admitting she was a little upset. "My husband is a typical last-minute card and present-buyer, but this really takes the biscuit.," she wrote. 3She took to Mumsnet to ask if she was...
