    The San Francisco archbishop who banned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi from Holy Communion has denied that the timing of the Supreme Court's leaked draft opinion indicating it may overturn Roe v. Wade had anything to do with his decision. Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone said during a Friday interview that the California Democrat lawmaker's views on abortion are getting 'more extreme' and said his 'conscience' made him act against her within the church. He's been called on to step down over the decision by an op-ed by the San Francisco Examiner's Editorial Board, who accused Cordileone of acting 'in open defiance' of the Catholic Church's current leader Pope Francis on Saturday.  'The leaked decision and the Dobbs case really have nothing to do with the timing of it,' Cordileone told the Jesuit publication America Magazine, adding that Pelosi 'did meet with me and speak with me over the years a couple of times.' 'But more recently, her advocacy for codifying the Roe decision into federal law—it’s becoming more and more extreme and more and more aggressive.' The archbishop suggested he tried to...
    Simon Cowell has admitted that the fear of getting burnout forced him to scale back his huge workload, remarking that it was 'all becoming too much.' In recent months, the music mogul, 62, has been cutting down on his work commitments having downsized Syco and quit a judging role on Walk The Line as he reportedly 'edges into semi-retirement'.  And in a new interview, Simon detailed how putting his health first was a 'priority' and shared his delight that he's now able to spend more time with his beloved son Eric, whom he shares with fiancée Lauren Silverman, 44.

    As the U.S. closes in on its second year of the pandemic, the COVID-19 death toll in red America has surpassed that of blue America, a new analysis finds. DailyMail.com looked at data from 40 counties where Donald Trump or Joe Biden won at least 60 percent of the vote in the last presidential election in the four most populous states: California, Florida, New York and Texas. At the beginning of 2021, the cumulative Covid death toll per 100,000 people in blue counties was higher than that in red counties, but not by much. The two started to diverge in the spring and, by November, Trump counties were recording death tolls 1.3 times higher than Biden counties were. This is similar to the pattern seen on state-by-state basis.  In Florida, for example, the per capita death toll in Trump counties this month is 1.6 times higher than in Biden counties. The main reason for the disparity is vaccines. COVID-19 death tolls were similar in red states and blue states at the start of the year, but this changed after the...
    Anthony Fauci has been criticized for insisting that children must still wear masks outdoors, with one opponent accusing him of speaking 'total, complete, blood-boiling nonsense'. The nation's top public health expert, who has been appointed Joe Biden's chief medical adviser, spoke to Today on Wednesday morning. In an interview that left viewers with more questions than answers, host Savannah Guthrie tried to get clarity on the new Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) guidelines. On Tuesday the CDC updated its advice, to say that fully-vaccinated people could now be outside safely, in small groups, without a face mask. In large crowds, face masks are still recommended. Fully vaccinated means having had the full course - two shots for Pfizer and Moderna, one for Johnson & Johnson - and waiting two weeks for it to take effect. People under 16 cannot yet be vaccinated, and so must continue to wear face masks in public - indoors and out. Guthrie told Fauci she found the CDC guidelines confusing, describing it as 'a strange situation'. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday morning appeared...
    Angela Merkel has said she will not take the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine because she is too old, despite begging residents to take the jab.  The German chancellor, 66, was asked if she would take the jab to set an example to a country where many are refusing to take the Oxford jab and 1.2million of the shots are lying unused in storage.  ????

"In addition to the particularly vulnerable and elderly, I think it is correct to first invite population groups who cannot keep a distance in their jobs to be vaccinated," she said.

    The CEO of Whole Foods Market says the US is experiencing more COVID-19-related deaths because Americans are fatter than the rest of the world. John Mackey, who co-founded the organic supermarket chain in 1980 before selling it Amazon in 2017, said it is likely the country has been hit worse by the pandemic due to the higher cases of diabetes and heart disease brought on by poor diets.  The 67-year-old, who is a well known advocate for the organic food industry, told The New York Times on Thursday that the US has 'moved in the wrong direction' when it comes to changes in eating habits over the last 50 years.   Whole Foods CEO John Mackey says the US coronavirus problem is closely tied with the country's issue with obesity  Mackey co-founded organic supermarket chain Whole Foods Market in 1980 before selling it to Amazon in 2017  'Statistically, we definitely moved in the wrong direction. The whole world is getting fat, it's just that Americans are at the leading edge of that. We're getting fat, and we're getting sicker,'...
    Covid-19 cases could be missed if people are screened for a fever in the morning, scientists have warned.   US experts found flu patients were 44 per cent less likely to have a temperature in the early hours of the day, compared with the afternoon to evening. Researchers analysed a decade's worth of data from almost 300,000 people who visited emergency departments across the US.  They concluded that morning checks could result in up to half of people who have a fever being missed. And they warned this would apply to other infectious diseases like Covid-19, even though the study only looked at patients with a fever from flu.  A fever is one of the tell-tale symptoms of Covid-19. If it is not spotted, it could lead to someone going undiagnosed and potentially spreading the virus.  Hospitals regularly take patients' temperatures, and now screening is set to become commonplace in work places, schools and airports. The study researchers urged for a twice-a-day approach, and for checks both before and after a long-haul flight.  Researchers looked at patients representative of the US...
