    Facebook's parent company Meta is aiming to cut expenses by at least 10 percent over the next few months by reducing staff and reorganizing departments, days after it was announced CEO Mark Zuckerberg has lost $71 billion dollars this year.  The California company has been able to push out a number of staffers by reshuffling its departments and giving employees who are affected a 30 day window to apply for other roles in the company. The process allows the company to reduce the cost of employees while avoiding the issuance of pink slips as it weighs options going forward.  Meta executives recently discussed the need for 'ruthless prioritization' within the company and said hiring freezes are necessary, though at the time they avoided using the word 'layoffs.'  Mark Zuckerberg, 38, is seen on September 15 in Los Angeles after learning his wealth has dropped by $71 billion so far this year as his company aims to cut costs by at least 10% In February, Meta revealed no growth in monthly Facebook users, triggering a historic collapse in its stock price that...
    President Biden announced his his long-awaited student loan cancelation plan and an extension of the moratorium on payments Wednesday. Biden was long expected to announce plans to forgive up to $10,000 in student debt for those making up to $125,000, which he did, but he threw in another provision - $20,000 of debt forgiveness for Pell Grant recipients. In addition, borrowers will not be required to pay back loans until January 2023, marking the fifth extension of the payment pause.  Pell Grants are usually not repaid unless a student drops out early or does not take the proper number of credits.  Here's what the program will actually cost at minimum, based on models that did not factor in Pell Grant forgiveness:  One-time debt forgiveness of $10,000 per borrower making under $125,000 will cost about $300 billion. The cost increases to $330 billion if the program is continued over a standard 10-year budget window.  Disproportionately favors the well-off  Though the Biden administration plans to institute income caps to stave off criticisms that student loan forgiveness benefits the wealthy, between 69 and...
    Another record was set over the weekend when Customs and Border Protection's migrant encounter tracker for Fiscal Year 2022 surpassed the 2 million mark for the first time in U.S. history, according to reports. CBP sources told Fox News that the migrant encounters hit 2,001,034 this weekend, with the majority of the fourth quarter left to go. It comes after the agency released figures for July that showed encounters reaching below 200,000 for the first month since February. It was also the second consecutive month that saw a decline in encounters following four months in a row of increases. At this point in Fiscal Year 2021, encounter figures were at 1,277,177 – more than 700,000 less than the same point this year.

    An 'extreme heat belt' will form across the Midwest by 2053, according to a new study, leaving over 100million Americans regularly experiencing days over 125F. The intense heat belt will cover a stretch of country between the Appalachian mountains in western Kentucky and Tennessee to the eastern portions of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska, and consume nearly all of Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. Stretches of the Atlantic coast from Georgia to as far north as Delaware will be similarly effected, as well as swaths of Florida, Southern California, and Arizona. The study was released by the New York City based First Street Foundation as a part of an ongoing series of reports intended to show Americans how their homes could be effected by climate change. Previously the group released studies showing expected flooding and fire damage risks. The report comes after a crushing heatwave this year killed at least 19 people, according to Fox News, and left the nation sweltering throughout July. The tail end of a summer has also been marked by a string of unprecedented...

    An Ohio man has gone viral after he quit his teaching job of nearly six years to become a manager at the local Walmart, where he will make more money. Seth Goshorn, 28, posted a brief TikTok on July 18 holding up a Walmart vest like a professional athlete would hold up a new jersey, while wearing a blue polo shirt with the Walmart logo tucked into a gray pair of pants.

    Iran executed more than 100 people, including minors and women, within a space of three months in 2022, a report by U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres released Tuesday said. The report, which was presented at the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva by its deputy human rights chief Nada Al-Nashif, said that the numbers were on the rise and the reasons for executions were becoming more arbitrary. “While 260 individuals were executed in 2020, at least 310 individuals were executed in 2021, including at least 14 women,” Al-Nashif said. “At least 105 people were executed, many of whom belonged to minority groups” between January 1 and March 20 of this year. A total of 310 individuals were executed in 2021, compared with 260 the previous year.

    HUNDREDS of thousands of frontline workers are about to get some extra cash in their pockets. Lawmakers in Minnesota have agreed on a $500million bipartisan agreement on direct payments to frontline workers and relief for small businesses. 1Minnesota lawmakers have agreed on $500M to be distributed to frontline workers The Minnesota Senate voted, today, 65 to one, making it a step closer to landing on Governor Tim Walz's desk for his signature. Governor Walz said in a statement: "I am proud of this bipartisan agreement to provide hazard pay to frontline workers and relief for small-businesses owners, both of whom sacrificed a great deal during the pandemic to keep their communities safe and our economy strong." Additionally, it would also relieve businesses from any potential tax increases by allocating $2.7billion to replenish the state's Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund, restoring it to pre-pandemic levels. Details are still being established, but it's likely that nearly 667,000 workers would be eligible for the cash and would possibly apply through the Department of Labor and Industry.

    Women are far more likely than men to suffer from headaches. Researchers found that 6 per cent, or just over one in 20, have a headache for at least half of every month compared with 2.9 per cent of men. Their review of the global rate of headaches also concluded that women are twice as likely as men to suffer migraines. They found that 17 per cent of women suffer from migraines, which can last for up to three days and lead to vomiting and sensitivity to light and noise. But migraines affected only 8.6 per cent of men. Researchers found that 6 per cent, or just over one in 20, have a headache for at least half of every month compared with 2.9 per cent of men (stock image) Changes in hormones could be one of the reasons women are more affected, as any fluctuation in oestrogen can trigger pain in the head.  The research, from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, looked at 357 studies on headaches from the 1960s until today.  The researchers estimate that around...

    A hepatitis A outbreak that killed one person and is suspected in the death of another - after infecting more than a dozen people - has been linked to a popular Pennsylvania pizzeria with a history of health code violations.  Gino's Ristorante & Pizzeria in West Norriton, about 20 miles from Philadelphia, was shuttered Friday after it was identified by the Montgomery County Office of Public Health as the epicenter of the outbreak.   The recent cluster of the virus killed one person, infected nine more and may have killed another victim whose death is under investigation. Two additional potential infections are also under investigation, the department said.  The first exposure is believed to have occurred in late November.  Hepatitis A, a highly-transmissible infection of the liver, is generally spread from trace amounts of infected stool from food, drink or an object.  Gino's Ristorante & Pizzeria in West Norriton was identified by the Montgomery County Office of Public Health on Friday as the epicenter of the outbreak that killed one person, infected nine more and may have killed another victim whose death...

    The national average price of gas on Thanksgiving 2021 is at least $1.20 more than last year’s Thanksgiving. According to AAA, Thursday’s national average is $3.397. Last year on Thanksgiving, the price was $2.116. From October, the national average price of gas has increased about one cent. The price was $3.387 in October, less than November’s average. November’s increase in price is a part of a trend that has increased since President Joe Biden’s presidency. The price of gas has increased primarily to Biden’s war on American energy. In January 2021, Biden canceled the Keystone XL pipeline.

    Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc announced on Monday that its antibody cocktail can severely slash the risk of being infected with COVID-19 for up to eight months.  The combo therapy, REGEN-COV, was approved in November 2020 for emergency use to treat people with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 cases in the U.S. But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) expanded authorization in July 2021 so the drug can also be used as a preventive treatment. Late-stage trial data showed a single dose can lower the risk of contracting Covid by 81.6 percent between two and six-months after the cocktail is administered.  The FDA has previously stated that REGEN-COV is not a replacement for vaccination, but rather can be used in conjunction with people who develop a weak immune response to the shots. Regeneron say its antibody cocktail REGEN-COV (above) reduces the risk of contracting COVID-19 by 81.6% two to eight months after it is administered During this period, seven people in the treatment group developed Covid compared to 38 in the placebo group.

    Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, millions of Americans were skipping out on important vaccines, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) study finds. The agency published data earlier this year finding that up to 87 percent of American adults who were due a routine vaccine in 2018 missed at least one shot. Less than half of U.S. adults got the flu shot that year.  While the study is from before the pandemic, it shows that the issue of Americans not getting their shots proceeds the Covid crisis.

    Voters have turned against President Joe Biden on his handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal, according to a poll published on Monday, with more than a third believing that more than 500 Americans will be left behind after the August 31 deadline.  A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey found that only 32 per cent of likely voters rated the Biden administration’s handling of the current situation in Afghanistan to be good or excellent. Some 52% said it was poor.  The numbers come after Biden's worst week in office. On Sunday, he came to face to face with the consequences of his decision to bring home U.S. troops by the end of the month. He met families of 13 service members killed in a suicide attack outside Kabul airport and then watched in solemn silence as their remains were carried from a C-17 transport plane at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. The deaths of 13 U.S. troops in Kabul last week caused an outpouring of grief and anger at the Biden's administration's handling of the withdrawal from...

    Rescue crews searched desperately Sunday amid shattered homes and tangled debris for dozens of people still missing after record-breaking rain sent floodwaters surging through Middle Tennessee. At least 22 people were killed and more than 50 were still missing as of Sunday afternoon, according to Humphreys County public information officer Grey Collier. Authorities feared the death toll could rise. The flooding in rural areas took out roads, cellphone towers and telephone lines, leaving families uncertain about whether their loved ones survived the unprecedented deluge. Emergency workers were searching door to door, said Kristi Brown, a coordinator for health and safety supervisor with Humphreys County Schools. Humphreys County Sheriff Chris Davis said many of the missing live in the neighborhoods where the water rose the fastest. Their names were on a board in the county's emergency center.

    The U.S. vaccination rollout has picked up the pace with the country now averaging more than 700,000 vaccinations a day - the highest rate in over a month. The daily average for Americans getting their first doses is more 500,000, the highest in over two months, according to the White House COVID-19 data director. More than 195 million Americans have now received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine, representing just over half of the population. Many of the states with high vaccination rates are also those currently facing a COVID surge. In Louisiana, for example, vaccination rates have tripled in the past three weeks. But it will take months to make up for vaccination deficits if the U.S. continues administering shots at its current pace. The U.S.'s daily vaccination rate is now the highest in over a month.

    CHICAGO — More than 70 percent of adult Chicagoans have now gotten at least one shot of a COVID-19 vaccine, and the same is true for more than 50 percent of kids 12-17. The city’s health department celebrated the milestones, which come as officials push people to get their shots so they can be protected against the virus’s Delta variant. The vaccines are free and do not require insurance. They have been shown to largely prevent serious illness and death from COVID-19. The city and state have seen a surge in cases and hospitalizations due to the more contagious Delta variant. But the latest wave of COVID-19 — which has been fueled by the highly contagious Delta variant — has had the deepest impact on unvaccinated people. In June, 96 percent of people hospitalized with COVID-19 in Illinois were not fully vaccinated, and the majority were younger than 60, Gov. JB Pritzker said Wednesday. In Chicago, about 97 percent of people who have been hospitalized with or died from COVID-19 since January were did not have all their shots,...
    August 4, 2021 0 At least 11 people died Wednesday when a pickup truck carrying 30 people crashed in the Encino community of Brooks County, Texas, according to local authorities. Another 13 people who were traveling in the van were injured. Several have been transferred to hospitals in the area, including at least three in very serious condition. The driver died at the scene. County Sheriff Urbino Martinez said the vehicle is believed to be carrying immigrants, likely without documents. Among the objects they found were things that migrants usually carry with them, such as water, food and clothing for the trip, explained Christopher Olivares, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety. “We are trying to identify everyone and we are also checking with the Mexican consulate to see if they are from outside the country or not,” said Sgt. Nathan Brandley. 0
    ENCINO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – An overloaded van carrying 29 migrants crashed Wednesday on a remote South Texas highway, killing at least 10 people, including the driver, and injuring 20 others, authorities said. The crash happened shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday, August 4, on U.S. 281 in Encino, Texas, about 50 miles north of McAllen. Sgt. Nathan Brandley of the Texas Department of Public Safety says the van, designed to hold 15 passengers, was speeding as the driver tried to veer off the highway onto Business Route 281. He lost control of the top-heavy van, which slammed into a metal utility pole and a stop sign. The van was not being pursued, said Brooks County Sheriff Urbino. Martinez said he believed all of the passengers were migrants. Brandley said the death toll was initially announced as 11 but was later revised. He also said the 20 who survived the initial crash all have serious to critical injuries. The identities of the 30 in the van were being withheld until relatives can be notified, Brandley said. No information about the van, including...
    More than a quarter of COVID-19 patients say they are experiencing symptoms several months later, a new study suggests. Researchers looked at data on more than 400 people who tested positive for the virus and had since recovered.  They found that 26.4 percent still had symptoms six to eight months after first being being diagnosed with fatigue being the most common symptom. The team, from the University of Zurich in Switzerland, says the results leave many questions unanswered about so-called 'long-haul Covid' including who is more at risk or why it develops in the first place. A new study found that 26.4% of 431 COVID-19 patients still had symptoms six to eight months after first being being diagnosed with the virus 'Long-haul Covid' appears in patients that have recovered from the virus and continue exhibiting symptoms for weeks, or potentially months or years, after clearing the infection. There are a wide-array of symptoms that can appear, including continued loss of taste and smell, long-term fatigue and long-term sensory issues. The causes of the condition remain unknown and several studies...
