    The Orlando Magic could get a much-needed boost to their frontcourt depth vs. the Philadelphia 76ers at Amway Center. Rookie forward Paolo Banchero and big man Moe Wagner are available to make their returns Friday. Banchero was sidelined for seven consecutive games because of the sprained left ankle he suffered after rolling the ankle on a drive to the basket during the fourth quarter of the home loss to the Houston Rockets on Nov. 7. “I’ve just got to be patient,” Banchero said. “It’s my first time dealing with injuries. At first, I wanted to rush as quickly as possible trying to get back. I realized that wasn’t doing any good for me. I’m trying to learn to be patient and continue to be patient and listen to myself.” Wagner will make his season debut if he plays Friday. He hasn’t played since spraining his right midfoot during the preseason win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Oct. 14. Both Banchero and Wagner practiced Wednesday. “I haven’t heard Moe Wagner’s trash talk in a while,” Jalen Suggs said. “That was amazing. It’s...

    (CNN)As some public and school libraries pulled books from their shelves earlier this year, New York City's Brooklyn Public Library made access to thousands of books easier for teens across the country.In the past several months, the Brooklyn Public Library has issued more than 5,100 free electronic library cards to young people nationwide, Nick Higgins, the library's chief librarian told CNN. The library launched its "Books UnBanned" initiative in April as a way to stand against censorship and the growing number of book bans in schools and public libraries. Since then, readers between 13 to 21 years old in every state of the country and Washington, DC have applied for the electronic cards, Higgins said, and an estimated 18,000 e-books or audiobooks have been checked out every month."On one side, it's great that we were able to step in and support people in their time of need with access to robust library collections, but it's also really telling that there are significant censorship efforts going on across the country that a lot of us need to band together to push...

    Elon Musk, a man not known for thinking small, has taken to the stage at an energy conference to announce his goals for the rest of the year. The Tesla chief said that he hopes his company's self-driving cars will be 'in wide release' in the US and Europe by the end of 2022. Speaking at Offshore Northern Seas 2022 in Norway yesterday, he claimed that the launch of the autonomous electric vehicles depends on regulatory approval. The billionaire also said that he was focusing on the SpaceX Starship spacecraft, that had an orbital flight scheduled for this summer that has now been delayed. SpaceX was granted a license for this flight by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission earlier this month, and is now targeting a six-month window that opens on September 1. Musk told the audience: 'The two technologies I am focused on, trying to ideally get done before the end of the year, are getting our Starship into orbit ... and then having Tesla cars to be able to do self-driving.

    According to the governor’s office and the cities of Memphis and Nashville, more than 40 independent school districts have committed to allowing families to enroll in Education Savings Account (ESA) programs beginning in the 2022-2023 academic year. “There was an urgent need for school choice in 2019, and finally, parents in Memphis and Nashville won’t have to wait another day to choose the best educational fit for their children,” said Gov. Bill Lee (R). “I thank each school that has partnered with us to swiftly implement a program that will change the lives of Tennessee students, and I invite interested families to begin the enrollment process today.” The state explained the program’s purpose in an open letter to parents in Shelby County and Nashville. “In 2019, the Lee Administration pledged to ensure that every child in Tennessee had access to a high-quality education, no matter the zip code,” the letter said. “The Education Savings Account (ESA) program was built to support parents in Memphis and Nashville who urgently need access to options beyond traditional public school.

    At some point in the day, at many points in the day actually, we all have to use the bathroom. We use it for showers, for brushing our teeth, and… for the obvious. We also use it to put on makeup, fix our hair, and shave. In other words, with a room that we are in and out of so often, there must be ways we can make it eco-friendlier. Well, there are many things we can do to green up the bathroom. After all, it’s a room full of products — dental care, hair care, makeup, air freshener, etc. — as well as one that relies on multiple resources in the form of electricity, water, and possibly gas, depending on the water heater. Without beating ourselves up over whatever inefficiencies and pollutants our bathrooms currently have, there are lots of possibilities for most of us to do better there concerning the planet. And, it’s our actions, our personal choices, that will kickstart real change. 1. DIY Natural Toiletries Oddly, we use lots of chemicals to clean our bodies,...
    Ford is recalling some 2021 Expeditions and Lincoln Navigators over a defect that could spark fires under the hoods. The recall involves more than 66,000 vehicles in the US built between July 2020 and August 2021. At issue is a printed circuit board that is “uniquely susceptible to a high-current short” and was installed on the models during that time period, according to Ford. So far, there have been at least 21 reports of under-hood fires, including 18 involving vehicles owned by rental companies, Ford said. The defect has even affected vehicles that were parked and turned off. The company is advising owners to park their vehicles outside and away from structures until they can be serviced by a dealer. Ford said it had identified a remedy and was working “as quickly as possible” to make the necessary parts available to dealers, who will make the required repairs. Around one-third of affected vehicles should be able to get fixed immediately, while parts for the remaining recalled vehicles are expected to be available starting in early September, Ford said. Customers will...
    "This is an exciting moment for the coalition," says a group which calls itself Free the Pill. "[I]n July 2022, HRA Pharma announced that it has submitted the first-ever application to the FDA to switch Opill, a progestin-only, daily birth control pill from prescription to over-the-counter status. Free the Pill celebrates this important milestone and looks forward to continuing to work with coalition members to ensure that future OTC birth control pills are affordable, fully covered by insurance, and accessible to people of all ages in the United States." Members of the Free the Pill "coalition" include the ACLU, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Guttmacher Institute, NARAL Pro-Choice America, and Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Free the Pill and HRA Pharma both claim that about one-third of women who have sought a prescription for oral contraceptives have faced obstacles. They argue that an OTC option will liberate women from these obstacles and help them maintain their economic productivity without having to sacrifice an active sex life. Contraceptive use has been linked to "fuller participation in the workforce, career...
    (CBS DETROIT) — Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is asking President Joe Biden to make birth control available over the counter without a prescription. In a letter to Biden, Whitmer says moving birth control to over-the-counter would “mitigate inequities in our healthcare system.” READ MORE: 13-Year-Old Boy Charged In Fatal Shooting Of 14-Year-Old Girl In DetroitClick here to read the full letter. “We all need to get creative and use every tool in our toolbox to protect reproductive freedom in Michigan and across the United States,” Whitmer said in a press release. “Today, I sent a letter to President Biden urging federal action to make birth control available over the counter, without a prescription.

    A small community in Northern California will be among the first in the nation to receive free Amazon deliveries by drone this year, usually within 30 minutes of the order being placed, the company announced. Amazon selected the town of Lockeford, population 3,572, for the pilot program, as it was the home of Weldon B. Cooke, an aeronautical pioneer in the 1900s. The service will be for Prime customers only and is going to be called “Prime Air.” “We’re building something different,” Amazon said in a blog post. “We’ve created a sophisticated and industry-leading sense-and-avoid system that will enable operations without visual observers and allow our drone to operate at greater distances while safely and reliably avoiding other aircraft, people, pets, and obstacles.” The drones will change course if they see obstacles such as telephone poles or chimneys, and they will touch down in designated spaces free of any items. Customers must have an Amazon inspection beforehand to make sure their area is large enough to accept deliveries. NEARLY 70% OF TOP ECONOMISTS EXPECT A RECESSION NEXT YEAR The company...
    The Biden administration insists it's not 'too worried' about the slow number of pre-orders for covid vaccines for children under the age of five, saying they expect the pace to pick up after it's officially authorized for use. The administration on Thursday announced its highly-anticipated vaccine rollout plans ahead of the anticipated authorization for kids five and under to receive their shots. Next week, the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will consider whether to authorize and recommend the first COVID-19 vaccines for kids under the age of 5. Both agencies are expected to approve it. But the pre-orders for the dosage for those kids have been slow. Jurisdictions across the country have been able to pre-order since last week with 5 million doses available. Thus far, 58% of the available 2.5 million Pfizer vaccines have been ordered and just 34% of the Moderna vaccines, officials said.  President Joe Biden's administration not 'too worried' about slow pace of orders for covid vaccines for kids under the age of five RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next...
    Novavax's Covid vaccine for adults aged 18 and over received a unanimous recommendation from an independent panel at the Food and Drug Administration this afternoon, paving the way for it to become the fourth jab to be approved in the United States. Every voting member of the group — called the Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee (VRBPAC) — voted in favor of green-lighting the two-dose shot at the meeting Tuesday. It will now go to health chiefs at the FDA, who could sign off on the vaccine in the next few days. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) would then need to sign off on the shots before pharmacies can start rolling them out. If approved Novavax's protein-based vaccine — which uses the same technology as a flu jab — will become the fourth to be made available in the United States. Experts said they hoped having another shot available would help convince the remaining un-vaccinated 27million Americans to get the shot. Novavax requested authorization for its shot to be used in the U.S. in January....

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House on Thursday announced more steps to make the antiviral treatment Paxlovid more accessible across the U.S. as it projects COVID-19 infections will continue to spread over the summer travel season. The nation’s first federally backed test-to-treat site is opening Thursday in Rhode Island, providing patients with immediate access to the drug once they test positive.

    GENEVA (AP) — The head of the World Health Organization called on Pfizer to make its COVID-19 treatment more widely available in poorer countries, saying Tuesday that the pharmaceutical company’s deal allowing generic producers to make the drug was insufficient. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a news briefing that Pfizer’s treatment was still too expensive. He noted that most countries in Latin America had no access to Pfizer’s drug, Paxlovid, which has been shown to cut the risk of COVID-19 hospitalization or death by up to 90%. “We remain concerned that low- and middle-income countries remain unable to access antivirals,” Tedros said, The WHO chief warned that the unequal distribution of COVID-19 drugs could ultimately mirror the grossly disproportionate distribution of coronavirus vaccines. For example, while countries such as Britain have vaccinated more than 70% of their populations, fewer than 16% of people in poor countries have received a single dose. Pfizer signed an agreement in November with the U.N.-backed Medicines Patent Pool to allow other drugmakers to make generic copies of its pill,...

    Getty Images Many employers offer their workers benefits beyond just health insurance and retirement planning. These perks can range from mental health services to financial advice and can be used to grow your personal wealth. But many workers don't know what benefits they're eligible for. In fact, some 32% of employees said they are confused about their workplace benefits, according to a study from Businessolver. This confusion can be even more prevalent when it comes to benefits that aren't part of the enrollment process, unlike medical and retirement benefits.

    COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) – Thursday marks the beginning of the next chapter in the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It includes a transition from mass vaccination and testing sites to providers, community organizations and mobile clinics. With the majority of Coloradans partially vaccinated, the lines at drive up sites like the one at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park are often empty, but for months, these were an important part of the state’s COVID-19 response. “I think it really was important and helpful as one of the many strategies to make vaccines accessible,” said Michele Askenazi, Director of Emergency Preparedness Response and Communicable Disease Surveillance for the Tri-County Health Department, which supported the state-run sites. But after this Thursday, shots will no longer be available at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. It’s one of 12 community sites closing as the state transitions its vaccination efforts to more traditional health care settings. According to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, people can still get their vaccines from more than 2,000 providers around the state. Those include private providers, pharmacies, community clinics and mobile...

    Pfizer and Moderna, manufacturers of the two most popular used vaccines in the United States and much of the rest of the world, are expecting to bring in $51 billion in vaccine sales this year, according to earnings statements published by the companies. Pfizer expects to lead the way, with $32 billion in expected sales, with Moderna projecting $19 billion in revenue from its Covid shots. Almost all of these sales are coming from the developed world, with major nations like the U.S., the UK, Germany and others having surplus of vaccines while many developing countries struggling to get their hands on the shots. The wide disparity between the developing and developed world has been noted by organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) and the People's Vaccine Alliance (PVA) who are continuing calls for the companies to make their shots more widely available in the developing world.  Pfizer and Moderna project a combine $51 billion in revenue from their Covid vaccines this year Large vaccine manufacturers have been criticized by the global health community for prioritizing profits over health....
    Superheroes continue to save American cineplexes that have been left hobbled by the pandemic. Following “Spider-Man: No Way Home’s” staggering box-office success comes Matt Reeves’ “The Batman” to the rescue. But will a dark DC epic persuade more folks to venture into movie theaters? You don’t need a Bat Signal to figure the answer is likely yes. Here’s our review of that much-anticipated entry and a few other releases, including an HBO Max series that’ll make you smile and a Hulu release that’ll make you want to remain single forever. “The Batman”: In what seems like the umpteenth film incarnation to deconstruct the shaky mindset of Gotham City billionaire Bruce Wayne and his tortured alter ego, Matt Reeves — the filmmaker who revitalized “The Planet of the Apes” saga — comes up with a timely reboot, a Gothic, violent “Hannibal”-like crime epic that unveils the id of the comic-book icon while tapping into America’s current messy zeitgeist.

The money from the U.S. will be used to support Ukraine's economic agenda and financial projects amid concerns about a Russian invasion.
    On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Your World,” Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said that ISIS-K, “particularly in Afghanistan, is trying to re-constitute.

    Workers produce N95 respirators at Protective Health Gear (PHG) in Paterson, New Jersey, U.S., January 14, 2022.Brendan McDermid | Reuters President Joe Biden will make 400 million highly protective N95 masks available to Americans for free at pharmacies and community health centers around the U.S., a White House official said. The masks will start to become available late next week, and the program will be fully up and running by early February, according to the official. The White House said the free masks are the largest deployment of personal protective equipment in U.S. history. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in updated guidance published last week, said N95 respirators are more effective at prevention transmission of the virus than cloth and surgical masks.

    The Biden administration on Wednesday announced plans to increase the COVID-19 tests available to schools by 10 million each month to help keep them physically open amid a new wave of cases fueled by the omicron variant. The White House said the administration would send five million free, rapid tests to K-12 schools each month. The additional tests are designed to help support schools implement testing screening and “test to stay” programs, which involve using regular testing instead of quarantining for students who have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus. Additionally, the White House announced that the administration would make available 5 million lab-based PCR tests each month for schools to perform testing in classrooms. The test would be funded by the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief law.

Heather Wade, donor recruitment manager for INOVA Blood Donor Services, said a triple whammy has resulted in a critically low blood supply in the region. “The increased cases of the Omicron variant, along with historically low collections during the holiday period, and then we added the snowstorm,” all contributed to a critically low blood supply, Wade said. The American Red Cross said in a news release that giving blood prevents doctors from having to make difficult decisions about who will receive transfusions or wait for more blood to become available. Wade said it’s easy to donate and appointments are available almost every day. She adds that all the blood given in the D.C. region stays local. “Your donation stays here in the Washington D.C. metropolitan region, so you truly are going to save a neighbor’s life,” she said. You can make an appointment to give blood on INOVA Blood Donor Services’ website, or by calling 1-866-256-6372. There will be a blood drive...
    Donald Trump on Tuesday evening said he was 'very appreciative' of Joe Biden paying tribute to his administration's efforts to create the vaccine - adding that he was 'surprised to hear it'.

'Thanks to the prior administration and our scientific community, America is one of the first countries to get the vaccine,' said Biden.  'Thanks to my administration, the hard work of Americans, we let, our roll-out, made America among the world leaders in getting shots in arms.'  Trump, who has frequently complained about not getting enough credit for his decisions in pushing the vaccine manufacture, said he was pleasantly surprised by the president's words. 'I'm very appreciative of that - I was surprised to hear it,' Trump told Fox News.  Joe Biden is seen on Tuesday speaking about COVID-19 from the White House.

    By Priscilla Alvarez | CNN The Biden administration will make an additional 20,000 seasonal, guest-worker visas available for the winter season for the first time, the Department of Homeland Security announced Monday. DHS has previously upped the number of available visas for the summer season, which is among the busiest for bringing in workers, citing labor shortages. Monday’s announcement of 20,000 visas are in addition to the 33,000 visas made available for people employed the first half of the fiscal year, October 1 to March 31. The H-2B visa allows employers to bring foreign workers to the United States for temporary non-agricultural jobs, such as landscaping, hospitality and other industries “DHS is taking action to protect American businesses and create opportunities that will expand lawful pathways to the United States for workers from the Northern Triangle countries and Haiti,” said Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in a statement. The visas will be set aside for employers looking for workers on or before March 31. DHS will also carve out 6,500 visas for people from Haiti and the Northern Triangle countries...

    Republicans in the House of Representatives introduced a bill on Thursday that would require all federal agencies to make records related to the COVID-19 pandemic available for public review within 100 days. The Answer COVID FOIAs Now Act, sponsored by Texas Rep. Chip Roy, would order the head of each federal agency to clear all Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests related to COVID-19 treatments, as well as anything related to gain-of-function research. It was inspired by a Food and Drug Administration request to keep all documents related to the approval of the Pfizer vaccine under wraps until 2097, he explained. “The American people have been misled, and information related to COVID vaccines has been hidden from the public eye or delayed in perpetuity by our public health ‘experts,’ throughout this pandemic,” Roy said. “The FDA’s request to have until 2097 to fully release documents related to the approval of the Pfizer vaccine is absurd. The American people deserve transparent and honest information; that is why I am proud to introduce this bill to bring necessary accountability and transparency for...

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was grilled a second time about why she dismissed the idea of sending free Covid tests to every American household. At Tuesday’s briefing, USA Today White House correspondent Joey Garrison revisited a contentious exchange between Psaki and NPR’s Mara Liasson from the day before. ” Yesterday, you seemed to dismiss the idea of sending COVID-19 tests to all Americans, but other countries have taken similar aggressive steps to make free test — testing free, available to all citizens,” Garrison said. He gave a few examples, and asked “why the administration doesn’t think that sending tests — COVID-19 tests to all Americans is a good strategy?” Psaki delivered a lengthy response in which she listed six or seven ways in which the administration has made free testing available to Americans, including by requiring insurance companies to reimburse them for at-home tests. Garrison acknowledged those efforts — then asked “Wouldn’t it be a good idea to just send them to all American homes?” Psaki replied that the administration believes its efforts are the best way to...
