    A saliva swab before your hip replacement could predict if the procedure will work. British researchers have found that DNA signals lurking in saliva and blood samples are linked to an adverse reaction to materials in most joint implants. About 15 per cent of Britons have these genetic characteristics, which make the immune system attack tissue around the material, causing pain and swelling. Studies have long identified that roughly a fifth of people react badly to an artificial joint made from cobalt chrome. But until now experts didn't know why, which meant doctors had no way of telling if a patient would react badly to their new joint or not.

While thirty-three hotels on the recommended list for the World Cup, which opens in Qatar on November 21, accepted the male couple could book, the...

    A FORMER Trader Joe's employee has explained why workers will tell you to stop packing your bags if you use a certain checkout. The former crew member posted about the express lane on Quora saying, "for the sake of 'express' just stay out of my way and let me do it." 1These Trader Joe's employees were honest about how you can help them outCredit: Alamy The user, who posted under the name Natalie Mullin, said that at the normal check lanes, however, she did appreciate some help from customers. "In my experience, the customers who bagged were ALWAYS vastly more appreciated, regardless of skill, than those who stood there," Natalie explained. Apparently, Natalie had customers who, "watched their items pile up, spaced out and passed the time delay on to the other patrons in line."

    The headline news from a new Pew Research Center report is that younger women are out-earning men in some places. But the vast majority of women face a very different reality, the analysis of Census Bureau data shows. Women under 30 are paid at least as much as men under 30 in 22 metropolitan areas, a major advance for pay equality. But that’s 22 metropolitan areas out of 250, home to just 16% of young women working full time—and the story for women over 30 is different. RELATED STORY: Good news: It's the earliest Equal Pay Day ever. Bad news: Women are still screwed in this country In the New York City and Washington, D.C., metro areas, “young women earn 102% of what young men earn when examining median annual earnings among full-time, year-round workers,“ Pew reports.

    Thursday, during an appearance on FNC’s “The Ingraham Angle,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) warned if the United States was not successful in turning Russia into a “pariah state” and isolate it for the Ukraine invasion, it could send a green light to China’s Xi Jinping to invade Taiwan. Cotton was asked by FNC host Laura Ingraham if the the U.S. lackadaisical approach to the southern border situation was a message to Russian President Vladimir Putin. “Well, it’s told Vladimir Putin over the last six months that he can build up 200,000 troops on Ukraine’s border and invade,” he said. “And if we don’t bring the hammer down on Vladimir Putin, if we don’t turn Russia into a pariah state, and isolate them diplomatically, and economically and financially, it’s going to tell Xi Jinping, he can probably do the same thing in Taiwan. After all, he’s on the other side of the world.” “Taiwan doesn’t have the same kind of ties to Europe that Ukraine does,” Cotton added. “His economy is 10 times larger than Russia’s. It’s simply creating permission around...
    Barc adds bite FINALLY, a few signs of Boris Johnson taking measures to instil some order into his chaotic Downing Street operation. The PM’s shrewd appointments of Cabinet Office minister Steve Barclay as chief of staff, and Guto Harri — an old ally from his London Mayor days — as his spin chief, send a signal that the “grown-ups” are belatedly being given the reins. 1Finally, a few signs of Boris Johnson taking measures to instil some order into his chaotic Downing Street operationCredit: Getty An experienced operator, Mr Barclay’s stints at the Treasury have shown a determination to at least try to ensure taxpayers’ cash is properly spent.

    The nation's top infectious disease expert says he will be spending Christmas with his family and encouraged vaccinated people to celebrate the holiday with their loved ones. Over the weekend, Dr Anthony Fauci had said it was 'too soon' to say whether Americans can gather for Christmas. But just one day later, in an appearance on CNN on Monday, the director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases said his comments were 'misinterpreted' and that he was not telling people to forego family get-togethers.   'The best way to assure that we'll be in good shape as we get into the winter would be to get more and more people vaccinated,' Fauci said.  'That was misinterpreted as my saying we can't spend Christmas with our families, which was absolutely not the case.  'I will be spending Christmas with my family, I encourage people, particularly the vaccinated people who are protected, to have a good, normal Christmas with your family.'

    "Face the Nation" host Margaret Brennan had asked Fauci if the pandemic was "close to over" or if "we need to brace for another wave" as the holidays approach. Fauci answered that public health officials need to continue to look for COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths to come down. "The one thing that we don't want to do is that we don't want to become complacent and say, 'OK, now we need to pull back, we don't need any more people to get vaccinated,'" said Fauci on Sunday. "We need to continue to get those individuals, now 70 million people who are eligible to be vaccinated, vaccinated." Brennan then followed up with a question about studies that show "COVID's gotten better at transmitting through aerosols." "What does that mean? We're going into cold weather. We're going into the holidays. Do people need to start looking around and saying it's just too risky to gather with family members if there are unvaccinated children?" Brennan asked. Fauci replied that as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention...
    WASHINGTON (CBS) – The holiday season starts next month, but the pandemic isn’t over. So will it be safe for families to finally have large gatherings at Christmas this year?

    The Taliban has ordered barbers in Helmand province to 'stop following American styles' and has warned of punishment for beard cutting. 'No one has a right to complain,' said the notice posted in the blood-soaked province, warning that shaving was not tolerated by Sharia law. Similar instructions have been issued to barbers in Kabul, sources told the BBC. Requests for quiffs, mohawks, and crew cuts were commonplace under the American-backed government but since the Taliban seized power last month people have been living in fear. The jihadists shot dead four 'kidnappers' on Saturday before hanging their bodies from cranes in the streets of Herat province.

    Monica Lewinsky: Im nervous about Impeachment: American Crime Story 12 Colleges That Cover 100% of Your Financial Aid © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad The Raiders have compiled a record of 19-29 since Jon Gruden returned as head coach in 2018. As the team begins its second season in Las Vegas, no one really expects that Gruden will be on the hot seat if the season doesn’t result in a playoff appearance. But there are no guarantees in the NFL. So even as the Raiders have ostensibly made some significant improvements to their defense, their competitive division of the AFC West could leave them on the outside looking in when January arrives. In an interview this week with Vinny Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Gruden wouldn’t go as far as General Manager Mike Mayock did last week in setting playoff expectations. The head coach also said he’s not feeling additional pressure to succeed entering the fourth season of his second stint with the franchise. “I don’t really feel pressure,”...
    If until less than a week ago there was no official Microsoft tool to check the compatibility with Windows 11 of our systems, it seems that after what we think is the latest addition of compatible hardware to the list, now the time has come to make this information easier for all Windows 10 users. And the thing is that time passes very quickly, and before we want to know it, we are already in October, the month in which the deployment of the operating system will foreseeably begin. Thus, if yesterday we told you that PC Health Check is back (although at the moment only for insiders), today we can read in Windows Latest that said information will also be added to Windows Update, the Windows 10 feature you access to see available updates, and to decide whether or not you want to apply them. Soon, in addition to this information, you will be told if your system is compatible with Windows 11 and, one might imagine, after the launch of the operating system you will be offered the...
    "No, and if you get in our way when we are extracting Americans then we will kill you," he continued, adding, "That is the only message that Biden should be delivering to the Taliban." 'We will kill you': Congressman says U.S. should reject Taliban threats over Aug. 31 deadline www.youtube.com The lawmaker's simple message came after the Taliban recently threatened dire "consequences" should the deadline be extended or otherwise violated. Spokesmen for the group said on Monday that the Aug. 31 deadline is considered a "red line" that the U.S. ought not to cross. Then on Tuesday, they declared that Afghan nationals would no longer be allowed to flee the country. As the Biden administration continues to work on rescuing an undisclosed number of American citizens from Afghanistan, it has been inexplicably vague regarding the number of Americans evacuated thus far, leading many to question whether the mission can be completed before the deadline expires next Tuesday. According to a leaked cable, the administration has so far been able to evacuate roughly 4,400 Americans from the...

    Dear Amy: I am the maternal grandmother of a sweet, intelligent 5-year-old boy, “Danny,” who, because of divorce, spends time at his paternal grandma’s house in a conservative area of our state. Amy Dickinson  She and I have a good relationship, despite this very contentious divorce. She is a wonderful grandmother, not only because she is kind, intelligent and empathetic, but also because her career is in education. She’s a principal at an elementary school. I recently discovered that she has not received the COVID-19 vaccine, nor does she have any plans to get it. When I asked her why, she just shrugged and said it was all blown out of proportion and she didn’t need it. The rest of the family (the child’s parents and myself) have all been vaccinated, so we can feel safe going between homes, but now we have this added situation with Danny spending time with his unvaccinated grandmother for long weekends.

    Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that Republicans opposing the so-called January 6 commission will impact the GOP in the 2022 midterm elections. Anchor Chris Wallace asked, “Why do you think that Senate Republicans lead by Mitch McConnell are going to apparently block this commission. Do you think it’s all about politics on their part, and don’t they have a point that one of the reasons the Democrats are pushing so hard for this commission is because they want to bring the controversy over what happened on January 6th and over the alleged role that Donald Trump played in it, they want to bring that into the 2022 midterms?” Kinzinger said, “Well, here’s a revelation, this is going into 2022 midterms anyway, particularly if us as Republicans don’t take ownership for what happened. If every other day there’s a new conspiracy theory about what happened in the Capitol, anybody but what it was, and so yeah, then I think it’ll go into 2022, and we will look like we are just sitting here denying reality and facts.” He...
    Drew Angerer/Getty Images The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) homepage currently includes a prechecked recurring donation box, which if unchecked, will allegedly force the committee to tell Donald Trump that “you’re a DEFECTOR” and have sided with the Democratic party. The Bulwark’s Tim Miller reported on the NRCC’s questionable fundraising strategy, noting that they are asking supporters to sign up for Trump’s currently nonexistent social network alongside a prechecked donation box that would double the original amount given, and make it a monthly charge.

    Good Morning America host Michael Strahan blasted his ABC colleague Bachelor host Chris Harrison on Thursday morning by suggesting Harrison's apology for defending a racism scandal on his show were insincere and just a means of getting his job back. Harrison took an indefinite leave of absence from the show after defending contestant Rachael Kirkconnell, 24, for an attending an 'Old South', plantation-themed party in 2018.   He defended her during an interview on February 10 with Rachael Lindsay, the first black Bachelorette, saying: 'Is it a good look in 2018 or is it not a good look in 2021? Because there's a big difference.... the woke police are out there. They are ripping this poor girl's life apart.'   Harrison apologized for the remarks on Instagram over the weekend after uproar.  He then appeared on Good Morning America on Thursday in an interview with Strahan to directly apologize to Lindsay for being so 'insensitive' and to announce that he would be returning to the show and 'be part of the change'.

    New York : Currently, the IRS is already accepting 2020 tax returns. Photo: ADEK BERRY / . / . The proposal for the third most recent stimulus check states that the IRS will determine what your total payment will be based on the total income you reported in 2019 or 2020. That is, what the IRS most recently recorded when the check was mailed. This can have several implications for you. For example, if you made more money in 2020 than in 2019, but the IRS uses your 2019 return, the IRS will give you more money on the stimulus check. Fortunately, if this happens to you, you will not have to return any of the extra money they gave you, as reported by CNET. On the other hand, if you should be given a third full check for $ 1,400 based on your 2020 taxes, but the IRS gives you less money based on your 2019 return, so you can claim the money owed to you within a year, when you file your 2021...

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: In a world where families live in separate parts of the country, I have a hard time keeping up with members of my own, especially nieces and nephews. I am not on social media, but even if I were, that would not give me addresses to send birthday cards or baby gifts. I have politely and repeatedly asked parents for details when they mention that Lily or Leo has a new house or baby. But physical addresses or the date of a birth are difficult to come by. Are new address notices or birth announcements no longer done? I understand that the families may be too busy to write letters to an aunt, but I enjoy sending cards and small gifts when appropriate. I need an address to do so.

    Sony’s latest PlayStation 5 update seems to have fixed one of the biggest issues with cross-gen games on the console: making it clearer when players have the PlayStation 4 version of a game installed and notifying them when there’s a PS5 version available to download. The feature, spotted by Twitter user Tidux, aims to clarify one of the more frustratingly complex parts of the PlayStation 5. Because the console offers backwards compatibility for all PS4 games — including ones that offer free next-gen PS5 updates, like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or Destiny 2 — it’s pretty easy to accidentally install the older version of the game. Microsoft has taken a simpler approach to the system, with its Smart Delivery program that will automatically install (or update) a game to the best version for a console. While Sony’s method isn’t quite as easy, it’ll at least make it clearer to players when they have the wrong version installed. The new feature will likely be particularly helpful in the future, as more developers continue to release PS5-optimized versions of their PS4...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Nearly two weeks after Thanksgiving, Gov. JB Pritzker said he’s encouraged that Illinois hasn’t seen a new wave of COVID-19 cases, but he warned that it’s too say for sure if a holiday surge is coming. Pritzker said the state’s average positivity rate has remained relatively flat over the past week, and at the same time the number of people getting tested for the virus in Illinois has gone down, likely due to an uptick in demand for tests in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. As of Monday, the state’s average case positivity rate stands at 10.3%, compared to 10.9% two weeks ago. The state’s case positivity rate climbed as high as 13.2% during the second wave of the pandemic, which started in early October. “So far we haven’t seen our positivity rate start to creep back up, which is a good sign, but we also haven’t seen it substantially fall; not a good sign. It may be that our mitigations are working to offset the expected surge in cases, but we won’t know that for...
    There is a line of demarcation that cannot be looked up in any reference book (ask your parents) or found by any Google search. We know it is there by what we’ve seen and how that image is imprinted on the lists we compile in our heads. There are athletes who thrive in pressure situations and those who do not. Some wilt when the heat rises late in games and late in seasons. Some wipe off the sweat and stay cooler than the rest. There is no more revealing petri-dish sample than the rigors of a postseason chase. Coaches say they are all big games, regardless of standings and playoff chances, but we all recognize there is big and there is bigger, and what awaits the Giants after Thanksgiving is bigger than anything they recently encountered during the holiday season. “For me, it’s different being here the last three years in the situations that we’ve been in,’’ tight end Evan Engram said. “I know it’s different for a lot of the young guys that are here that are just coming...

    Reuters November 14, 2020 0 Comments U.S. President-elect Joe Biden solidified his election victory on Friday by winning the state of Georgia, and President Donald Trump said “time will tell” if another administration takes over soon, the closest he has come to acknowledging Biden could succeed him. Edison Research, which made the Georgia call, also projected that North Carolina, the only other battleground state with an outstanding vote count, would go to Trump, finalizing the electoral vote tally at 306 for Biden to 232 for Trump. The numbers gave Biden, a Democrat, a resounding defeat of Trump in the Electoral College, equal to the 306 votes that Trump, a Republican, won to defeat Hillary Clinton in a 2016 victory Trump called a “landslide.” At a White House event where he predicted a coronavirus vaccine would be available for the whole population by April, Trump edged closer to acknowledging he might leave the White House in January but stopped short. “This administration will not be going to a lockdown. Hopefully the, uh, whatever happens in the future – who knows...
    VIDEO9:4209:42German health minister on new lockdown measures: The second wave will be strongerClosing Bell German Health Minister Jens Spahn told CNBC on Wednesday it's "too early to say" whether the country will extend its partial lockdown beyond the month of November, contending more time is needed to determine if the latest round of coronavirus restrictions has adequately reduced transmission. "We need patience, actually, because the numbers of today actually are the infections that have taken place one week or more days ago," Spahn said in an interview that aired on "Closing Bell." "It will be the end of this week that we might see the results of the new lockdown light we have now." Germany's seven-day average of new coronavirus is up almost 22% compared with a week ago, according to CNBC analysis of Johns Hopkins University data. The daily average of nearly 19,800 new diagnosed infections in the last week is an all-time high in the country, according to CNBC's analysis. "We still have an increase, yes, but a very much lower one than we have...
    ​It is “too early to tell” whether a UK-US trade deal will be a priority for Joe Biden, a Cabinet minister has said, amid growing concerns that Boris Johnson faces an uphill battle to establish himself within the new White House administration.  George Eustice, the Environment Secretary, confirmed the pair still had not spoken but played down Mr Biden’s comments about the Prime Minister as part of campaign rhetoric. He told the BBC “I suspect that now Joe Biden is President, he and the Prime Minister will want to cement a very important relationship”.   He said he hoped the new administration would be “happy to pick up” on the work already carried out on a UK-US trade deal, but admitted: “It remains to be seen how much priority Joe Biden would place on trade in general… but it is too early to tell.”  Mr Eustice stood by the controversial Brexit legislation that is likely to make that relationship harder, telling Sky News the UK Internal Market Bill was not “about undermining Belfast agreement, it is about standing by it.” Any clauses...
    Khabib Nurmagomedov. Photo by Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLC via Getty Images Only time will tell whether Khabib Nurmagomedov actually sticks to his retirement plan or not. That's according to his long-time trainer Javier Mendez, from the American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, California. Mendez said he was unaware Nurmagomedov was going to announce his retirement, but added that the fighter was emotionally "all over the place" on Fight Island last weekend. One of Nurmagomedov's lightweight rivals Tony Ferguson doubts Nurmagomedov will stay on the sidelines, and said he'll stay ready should he ever return to the UFC Octagon. The Russian Boxing Federation also said that their door would be open if Nurmagomedov wanted to take part in a charity exhibition, or a pro boxing match. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Khabib Nurmagomedov's coach said only time will tell whether the UFC fighter will stay retired as he was emotionally "all over the place" after his fight on Fight Island Saturday.

Fake label.Bill Oxford/iStock/Getty Images For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.The first COVID-19 vaccines will be approved in the next few months, but many Americans say they won’t immediately take them. A STAT/Harris poll this week found that 42 percent of respondents don’t trust the vaccines in development—up from 31 percent in August. Among Black Americans, who have suffered disproportionately from the coronavirus, the number is even higher: 57 percent of Black respondents said they wouldn’t get the vaccine right away in the October poll, compared to 35 percent in August.   Americans’ hesitation is understandable: Top officials at the White House have been pushing for months to speed up the vaccine review process—most recently, they tried to bar safety measures proposed by the Food and Drug Administration. (They failed.) The Trump administration has applied pressure on scientists in myriad other ways, from meddling with CDC coronavirus guidance to downplaying the risks of climate change. In...

    (CNN)Former Vice President Joe Biden headed into the Democratic National Convention with a clear lead over President Donald Trump. But even as Biden continued to hold about a 9-point advantage in an average of CNN approved live interview polls conducted in August, a weak spot remained clearly visible for Biden: Black voters. Although Black voters propelled Biden to victory in the primary, his lead with them continues to be noticeably smaller than Clinton's edge at the end of the 2016 campaign. One clear way to deduce if Biden had a successful convention is if he starts at least matching Clinton's numbers with Black voters. The convention was, of course, the first big opportunity for Biden to share the limelight with his running mate, California Sen. Kamala Harris. Harris, the first Black and South Asian woman to be on a major party ticket, was selected in part because of the clamoring among the base for Biden to pick a woman of color as his running mate.
