    Washington DC and Virginia are both set to be hit by another snow storm, just days after Frida brought eight inches of snow and travel chaos to the area.    The latest extreme weather will see temperatures drop to the upper 30s from Thursday evening. Snow is expected to fall later, after 8p.m. and melt by sunrise on Friday. For those who will be at work or need to travel, between one and three inches is expected to fall, and it is expected to be softer and lighter than the Frida inundation, meaning it should melt much more quickly.   Weather alerts on Thursday's storm have been issued to most residents through text messages in the National Capital Region ahead of the snowfall. While not as much snow is expected to fall on Friday like it did on Monday, it is still expected to affect people's commutes early Friday morning.  'Plan on slippery road conditions,' the Weather Service writes. 'The hazardous conditions could impact the Friday morning commute. The heaviest snow is expected between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. when snowfall rates...

    Heathrow passengers today had a taste of the new normal as they underwent swab tests before boarding flights to the US. Passengers were seen flooding into the London airport this morning, despite a series of travel bans on UK passengers. More than 50 countries across the world have imposed restrictions on UK travel - with some banning flights entirely - after the identification of a mutant Covid-19 strain in Britain. However flights to New York can continue, so long as passengers provide a negative Covid test before they fly.  Virgin Atlantic yesterday doubled-down on the policy, announcing its passengers will have to provide a negative test to fly to any part of the US from tomorrow. But as the announcement was made, it was revealed one of Heathrow's on-site PCR testing facilities - operated by Collinson - was forced to partially shut due to a 'plumbing issue'. Some passengers were moved across to different terminals to take a test and faced longer waits for their results. Heathrow bosses say the issue has now been fixed. But airport chiefs today warned travellers to...

    Conspiracy theories that billionaire philanthropist George Soros has been organizing and funding the nationwide anti-police brutality protests sparked by the death of George Floyd are gaining traction online among the far right. The baseless theories involving Soros range from him hiring protesters and renting buses to transport them to demonstrations, to stashing piles of bricks around protest sights so that activists can hurl them into glass storefronts or at police. Amplified by a growing number of people on the far right, including some Republican leaders, online posts about Soros have skyrocketed in recent weeks. They have been accompanied by online ads bought by conservative groups that call on authorities to ‘investigate George Soros for funding domestic terrorism and his decades-long corruption.’ The 89-year-old has donated billions of dollars of his personal wealth to liberal and anti-authoritarian causes around the world, making him a favored target among many on the right. The Hungarian-American, who is Jewish, has also been the subject of anti-Semitic attacks and conspiracy theories for decades. The baseless theories involving Soros, 89, range from him hiring protesters...
