    Donald Trump vetoed a plan to get vaccinated against COVID-19 alongside former presidents during the final weeks of his time in office, according to a new book by a husband and wife who worked at the heart of the White House pandemic response. At the time, late 2020, the president had recently recovered from the virus.  But journalists were bombarding officials with questions about when he would be given the new vaccine. 'So we started brainstorming potential scenarios in which the president could receive the vaccine in a public way,' writes Brian Morgenstern, White House deputy press secretary and deputy communications director at the time. 'One of the ideas was to have the president invite the former presidents to the White House—or to some other site—to have all of them receive the vaccine together in a show of unity.' Aides figured that although the president might still have antibodies from his tussle with the virus, the event demonstrate his confidence in the safety of vaccine.  Morgenstern and another aide were tasked with taking the idea of appearing alongside Bill Clinton, George...
    Hillary Clinton has insinuated in a new book by an NBC News reporter that she believes her former 2016 Democratic primary rival Bernie Sanders is a sexist, remarking 'I know the kind of things that he says about women and to women.'  Clinton made the remarks to NBC News Capitol Hill correspondent Ali Vitali in her new book 'Electable: Why America Hasn’t Put a Woman In the White House … Yet.' In an excerpt published by Politico on Friday, the journalist recalls Clinton's comments that followed a widely televised heated clash between Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who were both on the ballot for the 2020 presidential election. Warren accused Sanders during the debate of telling her in private that a woman couldn't win the presidency. He denied making the comment, which pushed Warren to confront him onstage after the debate while their microphones were still on.  Clinton, who watched it all unfold, told Vitali: 'I believed her, because I know Sanders, and I know the kind of things that he says about women and to women. So, I thought that she was...
    Android mascots are lined up in the demonstration area at the Google I/O Developers Conference in the Moscone Center in San Francisco.Beck Diefenbach | Reuters Google, the developer of the Android, is increasing the pressure on Apple to adopt RCS, a next-generation standard for text messaging. It argues that Apple's support of RCS would help prevent some of the problems that arise when iPhone users text with Android owners. Currently, images and video don't show as clearly as they could, for example, and texts can't be sent over Wi-Fi networks. Google executives have suggested that Apple won't support RCS because its own system, iMessage, helps the Cupertino company retain iPhone users by locking them into the Apple ecosystem. In a website and publicity campaign on Tuesday, Google blamed Apple for creating a substandard experience when iPhones text Android phones or vice versa. "We're hoping that Android users stop being blamed for ruining chats," Google global vice president for integrated marketing for platforms, Adrienne Lofton, said. "This is Apple that is responsible, and it's time to own the responsibility." The...

    The organisers of the prestigious Wimbledon tennis tournament have banned Russian and Belarusian players from competing in their Grand Slam this June.  The ruling, after months of deliberation, marks the first time since the ending of the Second World War that a major sporting event has banned a player because of their birthplace. In 1946, Japanese and German players were not allowed to compete. Three quarters of a century later, surely there is room for a more nuanced approach?  The Beijing Winter Olympics took place earlier this year despite China's appalling human rights record towards Uighur Muslims - gold medals are seen by global leaders as an important way of promoting nationalism. Although the UK and USA publicly condemned China and refused to send diplomats to attend the games, they allowed their national teams to compete. Which seems cynical, to say the least.  Three of the women's world top 20 will be banned - including Aryna Sabalenka (pictured) President Putin is said to have delayed the invasion of Ukraine until the Russian team had completed their efforts in Beijing and brought home...
    Astronomers have discovered a new kind of stellar explosion that would be powerful enough to destroy the equivalent of 3.5 billion Great Pyramids of Giza. The so-called 'micronova' is a blast that lasts for just a few hours, which makes it very difficult to observe, but it could be commonplace in the universe. These explosions take place on the surface of certain stars and can quickly burn through huge amounts of material, scientists claim. Experts believe the discovery may change our understanding of how eruptions in stars occur. Astronomers have observed a new kind of stellar explosion (pictured in an artist's impression) that would be powerful enough to destroy the equivalent of 3.5 billion Great Pyramids of GizaHOW DO STARS FORM? Stars form from dense molecular clouds - of dust and gas - in regions of interstellar space known as stellar nurseries.  A single molecular cloud, which primarily contains hydrogen atoms, can be thousands of times the mass of the sun.  They undergo turbulent motion with the gas and dust moving over time, disturbing the atoms and molecules causing some regions to...
    ATLANTA (AP) — Marcus Mariota has already addressed the most immediate issue with his new team. He’ll wear No. 1 for the Atlanta Falcons, not his usual No. 8. Pro Bowl tight end Kyle Pitts already had Mariota’s preferred number. The quarterback wasn’t about to ask Pitts to give it up, so he plans to go with the digit he wore when he first started playing football as a kid in Hawaii. “It’s kind of a full-circle moment for me,” Mariota said. “When I started playing Pop Warner, the first number I got was ‘1.’ I’m going to go back to that, which is kind of cool.” Mariota will soon have more pressing matters than the number on his jersey. A former No. 2 overall draft pick, he’s looking to get his career back on track after spending much of the last three years as a backup. Mariota has some huge shoes to fill in Atlanta, where Matt Ryan started at quarterback the last 14 years. “Something I’ve learned over the course of my career is you can’t compare...
    In this article GM TSLA A Tesla dealership in Colma, California, on Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2022.David Paul Morris | Bloomberg | Getty ImagesFor consumers who have found that costlier insurance is just one of the expenses that make electric cars trickier to love, this is the year when relief may be coming. Tesla says its company-backed insurance, now on the market in just five states, may reach 45 by the end of the year. GM, which revived its old GMAC insurance unit as OnStar Insurance in 2020, says it hopes to hit $6 billion in yearly insurance revenue by decade's end. Auto insurance is unlikely to ever be the largest business at either company, or even close. But insurance is shaping up as a way that the finance side of automakers' business can help drive innovation and make adoption easier – as the data generated by the cars themselves is captured to deliver lower insurance prices and, automakers hope, cement customer loyalty. Wedbush analyst Dan Ives says Tesla could insure 300,000 cars by 2025  "This is a 2024-25 initiative, but they...

    Chinese officials took the anniversary of the violence at the U.S. Capitol as an occasion to extol the communist system of governance as an alternative “path to democracy,” in a potential portent of Beijing’s public diplomacy. “The storming of the Capitol Hill one year ago shocked the world and set people thinking,” Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said Thursday. "No democracy is superior to others and no democratic model fits all scenarios. The exploration of a path to democracy by a country’s people in light of national realities is the only right way to achieve and develop democracy.” Chinese officials long have denied that the United States has the standing to criticize their system of governance or object to the repression of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang, which the State Department has deemed a genocide. Yet the insistence that their political model qualifies as a democracy represents a diplomatic innovation, according to analysts, that could forecast their plan to forge additional political links with fellow travelers in other governments. “They're doing three things at the same time: They're discrediting U.S....
    As we enter into the final few weeks of 2021 and a new year, I can't help but feel an underlying sense of anxiety and hesitation about what 2022 could possibly bring us. I am not trying to sound like The Grinch but I, like most of you, remember the excitement and jubilation of New Year's 2020 as we were entering a new decade, 'the roaring twenties' if you will. My husband and I were heavily tipsy on a rooftop in Barcelona, Spain watching fireworks and I remember feeling blissfully happy and full of anticipation and optimism for the new decade. We all know what happened next, and for that matter, what has happened in the two years that followed. I don't need to tell any of you how much has changed for all of us. My daughter is 14-months-old and I am dreading her turning two-year-old because I have no idea how I could keep a mask on a child for an extended period of time. She can barely keep a headband on her head. I also don't want...

    TOTOWA, New Jersey (WABC) -- Two fire departments in New Jersey delighted onlookers with their annual holiday parade on Saturday night and gave spectators a chance to 'Be Kind.'More than 100 vehicles signed up for the Totowa and West Paterson Fire Department's Holiday Parade.Spectators were asked to bring gifts to donate to hospitalized children, which were collected by Santa's helpers along the parade route."To be able to give a toy to perhaps a child who may not have toys at the time of this particular season is really important, and it demonstrates a humanness, if you will, that we are all in this together," said Totowa Mayor John Coiro."I truly saw the spirit of the holidays in every kid that we passed along the parade route, the kids had a great time tonight," added Woodland Park Mayor Keith Kazmark.The parade was also a way to get people out - to eat at local restaurants.Both fire departments are still accepting toy donations -- all you have to do is drop off an unwrapped toy worth at least $20 at either fire...
    Martin Fry is every bit as intriguing on Zoom as he is on those amazing ABC albums from the ‘80s. The ever-dapper frontman — known for giving voice to such heartfelt new wave gems as “The Look of Love” and “Poison Arrow” — begins our video interview by giving me a tour around his home office area. “These are my collection of bikes,” says Fry, pointing over to a number of cool two-wheelers hanging from hooks in the background. “Sometimes people think I’m in the back shed, but, no, I’m inside my Edwardian house in the center of London.” He also shows off the art on his wall, with the highlight being a vintage Sex Pistols tour poster. “I stole that one off a wall in Sheffield and I believe it’s worth a lot of money now,” the vocalist remarks. It’s a fun intro into the interview, conducted in advance of ABC’s long-awaited return to California this month.

    A museum creator at the Queensland Museum in Australia discovered a previously unknown mollusk with an appetite for meat. Called Amoria thorae, the creature is part of the carnivorous Volutidae family of marine snails and is a new species of Amoria, which is a type of mollusk with a wavy shell. The Amoria species, is so rare, scientists have yet to find a live specimen and have only been left with empty shells, according to the study published in Nature. Amoria thorae's shell is much smaller than other carnivorous volute mollusks and is a cream color with darker lines that form a wave like pattern that runs top to bottom. The museum says the mollusk inhabited parts of Cape Moreton, Queensland and Tweed Heads, New South Wales.

    Fans of Velvet Lounge and Dodge City are mourning the pandemic loss of those D.C.-area hangs. But a new nightclub hopes to revive the D.C. nightlife scene in the months ahead. The Asian-inspired secret garden oasis Sachi invites you to its grand opening Friday. “It’s a full-on nightclub,” founder Beau Biabani told WTOP. “It’s kind of a jewel box of a club. … It’s basically like an Asian den — a beautiful, ornate space, an immersion like a garden, a place to kind of get lost.

    Pro Football Reference has unveiled the results of a long-running stat project, and the Minnesota Vikings came out nicely. Before 1982, quarterback sacks were not an official NFL stat. That has led to a lack of data to fully show (at least statistically) how great the greatest pass rushers who played before that were. Unfortunately, that has included the key pieces of the Minnesota Vikings‘ “Purple People Eaters” defensive line. Until now. On Monday, Pro Football Reference revealed the results of a long-running project to tabulate sacks from 1960-81. It’s still unofficial data, in a league record sense. But the results are as eye-opening as one might expect, as some all-time greats (like Deacon Jones) get better statistical backing.The Vikings truly dominated the new sack dataThe unveiling of the unofficial all-time NFL sack leaders was kind to the Vikings. Alan Page was credited with 148.5 sacks for his career (1967-81), which puts him eighth all-time (unofficially, of course). He had 108.5 of those sacks as a Viking, before tallying 40 sacks over his final three-plus seasons as a Chicago...
    Two adventure-loving friends from Utah have donated $10,000 of their own money to create a treasure hunt to cheer people up after the pandemic. John Maxim and David Cline launched their first treasure hunt last year, burying $5,000 in the mountains of their native Utah to uplift their community during a difficult year of COVID-19 and lockdowns.  The treasure hunt ended after the money and silver was found only four days later, Cline told Fox News. Now, the pair have done it again as of last week, but this time burying $10,000. 'We just kind of sensed that morale was down as a community, just because everyone had been locked in for everything for a long time,' Cline told the news outlet. And so we were like, man, what would be a safe, fun way to get people outside? And we just kind of thought, what about a treasure hunt?'  'We had no idea what kind of response we’d get,' he revealed. 'It’s just blowing up.' David Cline said he 'cooked this whole treasure hunt idea up while traveling through...

    The Oakland A’s blew a late lead in a 7-5 loss to the New York Yankees on Saturday afternoon in the Bronx. Chris Bassitt wasn’t working with his best pitches, but held the Yankees to two runs through six innings. Gio Urshela hit a two-out RBI single for New York’s first run off him. Gary Sanchez’s towering home run was the second. Bassitt had five strikeouts. The A’s bullpen couldn’t hold the lead. Burch Smith allowed a run and departed the game in the seventh inning with two outs and a runner on for Yusmeiro Petit. But DJ LeMahieu hit a game-tying single off Petit. Jesús Luzardo became the first A’s reliever in team history to allow a home run in five straight appearances when Urshela struck again in the eighth with a solo home run to make it 5-4. After walking the next two batters, the only out Luzardo recorded was a sacrifice bunt with the pair of runners on. The A’s went to Sergio Romo in a strikeout situation with two in scoring position, and...

    Meet Bearsun, the real-life teddy bear on a journey from Los Angeles to San Francisco Sleeping 7-year-old boy killed, mom wounded after shooting following dispute in Florida LAS VEGAS — Kelvin Gastelum is among the longest-tenured fighters in the UFC. After winning Season 17 of “The Ultimate Fighter” with an upset of Uriah Hall, Gastelum has been a mainstay in the UFC for more than eight years. He’s had a series of significant wins during that time, and participated in one of the greatest slugfests in UFC history. He’s got wins over former champions Michael Bisping and Johny Hendricks among his biggest victories. But Gastelum, who will meet former middleweight champion Robert Whittaker on Saturday at Apex, is often a frustrating fighter because so much is expected of him. He has shown remarkable talent at times, but he’s the first to admit that consistency hasn’t been his strong suit. Part of it, he said, was trying to put on a show rather than simply focusing on finding a way to get a victory. “I feel like after the fight...
    Bolu Babalola knows all about love.  The Nigerian-British television writer, novelist and Twitter mastermind spoke to CBS News about today's American release of her first book, "Love in Color: Mythical Tales from Around the World, Retold." The collection of short stories features colorful and whimsical depictions of some of the world's most famous folklore.  "Love In Color" takes both well-known and long-ignored myths from around the world and transforms them into full-bodied stories that center women's agency and people of color — an exploration, Babalola says, paid homage to origins that people might be less familiar with and allowed her to creatively emphasize the depths of the romance genre. The characters are plucked out of ancient tales like Ghana's "The Princess's Wedding, Lesotho's "How Khosi Chose a Wife," and China's "The Cowherd and the Weaver Girl," and dropped directly into modern worlds.  Bolu Babalola Folaju Oyegbesan On the day of the interview, she spoke from her childhood bedroom in Lagos, Nigeria, surrounded by the books that she spent each summer reading.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP/CBS13) — A new California data warehouse system unveiled Wednesday should help policymakers better understand and address the issue of homelessness in a state that has the most unhoused people in the country, officials said. This is the first time the information has been collected at a state level, according to the state’s homeless coordinating and financing council. The announcement comes two months after a state audit that criticized California for an approach so fragmented and incomplete as to possibly hinder efforts to get people into stable housing.

I want them to see a beginning, middle and end, not just the Dorinda they think they know.’ I think that gives you a full understanding of me not only as a ‘Housewife,’ but as a woman and a mother and a wife and a widow and a business person and a daughter. “I didn’t write the book because I was a ‘Housewife,’” Medley affirmed. “I wrote the book because I think after standing and living for so long and having so many incredible experiences in life,...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Josh Reynolds looked at his offers and saw plenty of opportunity in Tennessee with the Titans. A high-powered offense anchored by the NFL’s back-to-back rushing leader Derrick Henry with a veteran quarterback in Ryan Tannehill who throws the ball down the field regularly. Reynolds couldn’t pass up the chance to show exactly what he can do in this league. “I felt like I can kind of just bring that different piece to help the Titans,” Reynolds said Thursday. ” Go above and beyond what they’ve been doing … I’m hoping I can bring that and help them continue to win.” The Titans signed Reynolds to a one-year deal that will allow him to hit the market again in a year. He should get a chance to catch plenty of passes with Tennessee losing two of its top three pass catchers to free agency. Corey Davis had a career-high 65 catches for 984 yards and five touchdowns and now is with the New York Jets. Tight end Jonnu Smith ranked third with 41 receptions...

He’s not sure who sent the message, just that it was jarring. It didn’t take long to find out it was false, too. “When you get a text that says something like that, it’s like, ‘Whoa.’ That might kind of mess with me a little bit,” he said. Bryant appreciated the open line of communication he and agent Scott Boras had with Cubs president of baseball operations Jed Hoyer and the quick response from the team.

    (CNN)The Australian state of Victoria will lock down for five days in a bid to curb the spread of a more contagious coronavirus variant, meaning the Australian Open will go without fans during what is usually its busiest few days. Authorities have identified 13 new cases tied to an employee of a quarantine hotel in Melbourne, who tested positive for the so-called United Kingdom coronavirus variant on Monday. Five of those cases were identified in the previous 24 hours, Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews said at a news conference Friday. Andrews that "this hyper-infectious variant is moving at hyper-speed," and to stop it the government needed to enact a short, strict lockdown so people do not unwittingly infect others before they realize they have contracted the virus themselves."We are facing a new kind of enemy. A virus that is smarter, and faster, and more infectious," Andrews said of the variant. "Until we have a vaccine, we need to do everything we can to keep this virus at bay." Australia has not yet begun rolling out coronavirus vaccines.Read MorePlay at the Australian...

But besides being an actor, Winter is also an accomplished director - and the man behind the new critically-acclaimed new documentary, "Zappa.""I grew up a fan of him as both a musical artist and as kind of cultural icon," said Winter.The late Frank Zappa was considered a complicated musical genius. He was outspoken, a rebel, a perfectionist, an original.When Winter approached his widow about what he wanted to do, she opened the Zappa vault- something she'd never done before-and gave him free rein."And it's an enormous amount of material and we had to spend a couple of years just preserving a lot of it. A lot of it was deteriorating film and video media mostly," said Winter. "The family had done a very good job preserving the audio and the masters and his great musical work."In the end, it took more than five years to make this movie."It was by far the biggest and most challenging thing I've done but it...
