    Welcome to the Glean, MinnPost’s twice-daily roundup of Minnesota news. At MPR News, Kirsti Marohn says, “Post-election hand counts of ballots that Minnesota counties are required to conduct did not uncover problems with vote-counting machines. Counties are required by law to hand-count ballots in a few randomly chosen precincts after the election. … Administrative services director Deborah Erickson said about 10 people observed the three-hour process, which didn’t uncover any problems. Erickson said two ballots weren’t counted by the machines because the voter did not mark their ballot correctly, either because they filled in ovals for two candidates and crossed one out, or because they crossed out a candidate’s name.” In the Strib David Chanen writes, “A Minneapolis apartment building owner had a second vacant property damaged by fire last week, a few months after the first incident. On Saturday, the Minneapolis Fire Department spent hours fighting a large fire at 2313 Lyndale Avenue S., in a building owned by C. David George. In September, a condemned building in Loring Park owned by George was also damaged by a fire. Nobody...
    By CHRISTINA A. CASSIDY and GEOFF MULVIHILL The final day of voting in the 2022 midterms unfolded Tuesday without major disruptions or widespread problems, a relatively trouble-free end to the first nationwide election since a campaign of conspiracy theories and false claims began attacking public confidence in the way ballots are cast and counted. Scattered problems arose during the day that frustrated voters but did not appear to affect the ability to accurately tally the votes. In Arizona’s Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix, some machine tabulators were unable to scan ballots immediately, a temporary glitch that began fueling conspiracy theories. Voter roll snags at check-in delayed some voters in Detroit. In the Houston area, where voting rules have been targeted by Republicans, equipment problems, lack of supplies and too few poll workers were reported at several voting sites but were resolved quickly, said Harris County Elections Administrator Clifford Tatum. By afternoon, many sites around the county, which is the most populous in Texas, were reporting wait times of 14 minutes or less. Since the 2020 election, former President Donald Trump...

    ANTONIO CONTE has no fears any of his Tottenham squad would play within themselves with the World Cup on horizon.

From the start of October, Conte’s squad face 13 fixtures in just 43 days before Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min and Co head off to Qatar. The sheer volume of games has prompted the suggestion that some players could be reluctant to go full tilt due to the risk of getting injured and missing the World Cup.

    The nine-year-old son of former model Kelly McKee Zajfen was found 'unresponsive' at home and his cause of death remains a mystery, DailyMail.com has learned. The tragic death of George Zajfen came as a complete shock to his parents who are now waiting for the results of an autopsy, a close friend of the family told DailyMail.com. Zajfen, 42, announced her son George's death on Instagram on Friday, writing that she would try to keep going for the sake of his twin sister Lily who has a cardiac condition and wears a pacemaker.  The family friend, who asked not to be identified, said: 'George had no heart problems that they were aware of. Nobody knows what happened right now. 'They're still waiting on the autopsy results. I don't even think she [Kelly] knows right now. He was just found unresponsive. 'It's hard to believe that it's him when of course it's his sister who has had a heart condition since she was two years old. Right now, it's very much a mystery for everybody.'

    Nick Saban says he does not have a problem with Jimbo Fisher alright, so quit asking. In the wake of their high-profile NIL feud, Alabama head coach Nick Saban said he does not have any issues with Texas A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher. Tuesday was Alabama’s day to meet with the college football media at SEC Media Days in Atlanta. After an excellent first day in the Georgia state capital, Saban got the ball rolling in day two with this juicy Chick-fil-A nugget of a quote, alright.“I have no issues, problems with Jimbo.” said Saban at the podium Tuesday morning in Atlanta. “I always take criticism in a positive way … is there anyway I can do anything better? I have no issues and problems [with Jimbo].” Saban poked the bear earlier this summer when he basically accused Texas A&M of buying players with NIL money. While Saban is in favor of NIL compensation, he wants it to be equitable for all players involved, reserved for those who are already on campus. Pay-for-play is frowned upon and technically against the...

    ATLANTA (AP) — The expanded use of drop boxes for mailed ballots during the 2020 election did not lead to any widespread problems, according to an Associated Press survey of state election officials across the U.S. that revealed no cases of fraud, vandalism or theft that could have affected the results. The findings from both Republican- and Democratic-controlled states run contrary to claims made by former President Donald Trump and his allies who have intensely criticized their use and falsely claimed they were a target for fraud. Drop boxes are considered by many election officials to be safe and secure, and have been used to varying degrees by states across the political spectrum. Yet conspiracy theories and efforts by Republicans to eliminate or restrict them since the 2020 election persist. This month, the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s conservative majority ruled that drop boxes are not allowed under state law and can no longer be widely used. Drop boxes also are a focal point of the film “2,000 Mules,” which used a flawed analysis of cellphone location data and ballot drop box...
    Fairfax Water said customers in their Falls Church Service Area are experiencing water problems due to a water main break. The utility first shared reports of no water and low water pressure after 4 p.m. Friday, saying their staff was investigating the issue. More Fairfax County News Less than an hour later, it determined the problem was caused by a water main break at an unknown location. Fairfax Water doesn’t have an estimation of how many people were impacted by the break, and said an increased number of calls and site visitors have affected site functionality, including the outage map feature. Susan Miller, a spokesperson for Fairfax Water, said that these problems do not extend to the homepage, and updates will be posted there and to social media accounts. Repairs are ongoing. This is a developing story.
    A down market, record inflation, record debt, consumer anxiety — in just a minute and a half on Saturday, CNN’s Matt Egan ran through a litany of issues that made it another “brutal week” for the economy under President Joe Biden. “This was another brutal week for the American economy. Stocks are down, inflation and borrowing costs are up. All of this is causing real economic anxiety for families,” said Egan in the report. That anxiety has been showing up in polls, including a Fox poll out this week with only 18% of respondents viewing the economy as excellent or even just good. Inflation has reached several new record highs this year and May’s increase in prices hit 8.6% — a 40-year-high. Egan pointed out that “the jobs market is still pretty strong, and that there’s “historically low unemployment,” but for workers the huge spike in prices overall, and particularly fuel costs, are acting like a pay cut; without a pay increase most consumers see their purchasing power going down and down. “The bad news is even the White...

    On Monday’s broadcast of Newsmax TV’s “National Report,” Rep. Diana Harshbarger (R-TN) dismissed claims that the Department of Homeland Security has a plan to deal with the border after Title 42 is lifted, stating, “they have no plan. Because the border is wide open.” And wondering why, if there is a plan to deal with border problems after Title 42 goes away, the plan wasn’t implemented immediately to deal with problems at the border before they reached the point that they’ve reached. After viewing a clip of Mayorkas stating that there is a plan for dealing with the border after Title 42 is lifted, Harshbarger said, “Well, my first thought is, if he had a plan, why didn’t he implement it when he was sworn in as DHS secretary? Why didn’t he combat this before it ever got to this point? … But they want to act like we have a plan now that’s going to save the country. Well, they have no plan. Because the border is wide open. And the 42 terrorists that have been caught, we don’t...

    2S19 howitzers from the Western Military District's 138th Motorized Rifle Brigade. This is a Russian defense ministry file photo from a few years ago, but this unit is now operating (and killing) in Ukraine. Pressure inside Ukraine and among many of its allies for a no-fly zone over its skies has grown in recent days as Russia targets civilian infrastructure in a bid to terrorize Ukraine’s people into submission. No-fly zones have been used over Iraq, Bosnia, and Libya to limit the operation of offensive enemy aircraft, and there is a belief that Ukraine needs one to better protect itself against its Russian invaders.  However, a no-fly zone would be an overt declaration of war against Russia, creating a showdown between nuclear powers (NATO planes would be shooting down Russian violators), and it wouldn’t even protect against the weapons causing the most damage. For example, as of today, the Pentagon had counted “over 500” missile launches, most of them being these guys: the Iskander mobile ballistic missile.

    Bob Saget's widow Kelly Rizzo said he had no health concerns and was feeling 'great' when he died suddenly on January 9. Speaking in her first set of TV interviews since the actor's death, Rizzo, 42, sobbed and described him as the 'best man' she has ever known.  The pair were about to celebrate their third wedding anniversary when he died in a hotel room in Orlando earlier this month. It's unclear what caused the 65-year-old's death.  Rizzo told Good Morning America's TJ Holmes that Saget was healthy. 'All I'll point to is that last post of his where he said he felt 26,' she said, referring to her husband's tragic final Instagram post where he talked about his joy being back on stage.  She said he had COVID recently but that it was 'nothing serious' and that he otherwise felt 'great'.  'There's only so many tears your body will let you cry,' Rizzo said, speaking from the L.A. home she shared with the comedian. The interview, taped yesterday, was the first day she said she was able to speak...
    The Joint Commission, which accredits U.S. health care organizations and institutions, states that in 2020 there were 68 reported incidents where the correct surgery was performed on the wrong part of a patient’s body, the wrong surgery was performed on a patient, or surgery was done on the wrong patient altogether. Reporting to The Joint Commission is voluntary, and the organization itself estimates their stats may represent less than 2% of total incidents. In April 2013, Jim Doyle of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch described the case of 53-year-old Regina Turner and a medical procedure that had gone horribly wrong. Turner had entered the St. Clare Health Center in Fenton, Missouri, for a left-side craniotomy bypass. However, that’s not what happened. Through what hospital officials later admitted was a breakdown in their procedures, Dr. Armond Levy performed surgery on the wrong side of Turner’s head. When the mistake was finally noticed, Turner received the correct surgery six days later, but by then, the damage was done. Turner, who entered the hospital “mobile, cognizant and able to care for herself,” was left...
              by Jamie A. Hope   The mother of a 10th grade student says the superintendent of Riverview Community Schools has violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by refusing to exempt her special needs daughter from a face mask mandate. She says the superintendent refused a request for an exemption from the requirement, even though he received a doctor’s note stating her child is unable to wear a mask. She says the superintendent is further violating the ADA by not offering acceptable solutions and allowing her daughter to return for the current school year. The student has numerous breathing issues and will have surgery this month to correct some of them. She also has been diagnosed with severe anxiety, which is triggered when she is singled out in any way. The mother says Russell E. Pickell (pictured above), the Riverview superintendent, attempted to have her sign a medical waiver to give him access to her daughter’s medical records. He also, she says, requested a Zoom meeting with the doctor, which he did not attend, though a school staffer did. The student’s...
    Violence receded Friday in the capital of the Solomon Islands, but the government showed no signs of addressing the underlying grievances that sparked two days of riots, including concerns about the country's increasing links with China.  Solomon Islands Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare sought to deflect attention from domestic issues by blaming outside interference for stirring up the protesters, with a thinly veiled reference to Taiwan and the United States.  External pressures were a "very big ... influence. I don’t want to name names.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Many parents are in agreement. Grandfather Lawrence Walker said, “They need to hire more bus drivers to get the kids back-and-forth to school.” Another mom told WJZ, “My daughter goes to the Baltimore School of the Arts and she takes an MTA bus home every day and this week the bus hasn’t shown up any of the days, so I submitted a complaint last night.” READ MORE: Harford County Restaurant 'The Local' Earns High Praise At National Cooking CompetitionThe nationwide bus driver shortage is very apparent in some Maryland counties.

Pennsylvania landed No. 21 on WalletHub’s States with the Biggest Bullying Problems survey.  As schools return to in-person learning this year, WalletHub measured the prevalence and prevention of bullying across 47 states and the District of Columbia in an effort to bring awareness to the harmful effects bullying has on America’s children and society as a whole.

    BOSTON (CBS) — There may not be a non-family member on this planet that Julian Edelman loves more than Tom Brady. But his love for the Patriots runs stronger.

    Dozens of anti-vaccination protesters gathered for a rally Saturday in front of Los Angeles City Hall, but unlike previous gatherings no counter-demonstrators turned out and things remained mostly peaceful. Some of those attending the “World Wide Rally for Freedom” carried American flags and signs that read “COVID 1984,” “Informed Dissent,” “I’m Not A Lab Rat” and “Forced Penetrations Are Always Wrong.” The crowd numbered about 200. Several speakers alternately recited psalms, praised members of the Los Angeles police and fire departments for refusing to submit to vaccine mandates, and urged demonstrators to persevere in their resistance to vaccines “no matter what names they call us.” One woman, who was introduced as a doctor, told the crowd: “If you silence your voices, you are giving your power away to the authorities who pretend they have your best interest in mind.” She urged the crowd to recognize what she described as “tyranny” masquerading as public health protections. At one point a caravan of cars pulled to the curb across the street from the demonstration, with signs taped to their sides that read,...
    Virginia’s vaccination coordinator, Dr. Danny Avula, said Thursday that if, as expected, a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot is recommended, residents shouldn’t have any problem getting it. “Whenever people become eligible, they will have access,” Avula said on a conference call. Federal health officials on Wednesday recommended booster shots for those who have had the two-shot Pfizer or Moderna vaccines eight months after their second shot. Federal officials said that before any booster program starts up, the Food and Drug Administration and a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory panel would need to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an extra dose. If approved, health officials are aiming to start the doses the week of Sept. 20. People who received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine will also probably need extra shots, health officials said, but they are waiting for more data. People with compromised or suppressed immune systems, due to various ailments and cancer treatments, were deemed eligible by the CDC for third shots starting last Saturday. Avula made a point of highlighting the difference between a third shot...

    Nearly 4,000 women have suffered period problems shortly after getting their Covid jab, Britain's vaccines watchdog has confirmed.  The issues, normally involving 'heavier than usual' bleeding or a delayed period, have primarily affected women aged between 30 and 49. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said it had received 2,734 reports linked to the AstraZeneca jab up to May 17. Another 1,158 reported menstrual changes after receiving Pfizer's and a further 66 were linked to the recently deployed Moderna jab.     Experts said the number of women suffering from period problems will 'definitely' be higher because many don't take the time to report them through official channels.  The figures, obtained by the Sunday Times, have raised questions about why menstrual changes are not included on the MHRA's list of Covid jab side effects.   But the regulator said a review into the issue concluded that the symptoms were not happening more frequently in newly vaccinated women than the general population. It said it would continue to 'closely monitor' the situation. Nearly 4,000 women have suffered period problems after getting their Covid...

    The White House repeatedly reassured Americans on Monday there was no gas shortage in the United States after the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack before acknowledging supply problems hours later. White House press secretary Jen Psaki brought Homeland Security advisor Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall and Deputy National Security Advisor for Cyber and Emerging Technologies Anne Neuberger to reassure Americans the Biden administration was on top of the crisis, urging Americans to remain calm. “Right now, there is not a supply shortage,” Sherwood-Randall told reporters at the daily press briefing. Psaki also note “at this point in time, I would just reiterate: We don’t see a supply issue.” President Joe Biden spoke about the issue later, reassuring Americans he was acting to “mitigate any impact on our fuel supply” with preparations for additional steps if needed. But as reports of gas shortages emerged and North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper issued an executive order declaring a state of emergency in the state, the White House admitted Monday evening there was a problem. “We are monitoring supply shortages in parts of the Southeast and are...
    The rev indicator on the dashboard should be always stay stable, which means that when driving (especially in vehicles with manual transmission), care must be taken to engage one gear more or reduce one less when appropriate to avoid the engine suffering. There are several causes that can lead to unstable engine revs, which means that the vehicle can accelerate or decelerate suddenly without the driver intervening in the speed and the gears engaged. This situation indicates problems at idle. The idle of a car is the minimum rpm rate at which an internal combustion engine is set for stable operation without the need to accelerate or fuel. When the idle is unstable, the driver notices that the car slows or accelerates without sense. One of the most common causes of unstable idling is the valve that controls the intake air, known by its acronym IAC. If dirt has accumulated on this part, the repair will be as simple as cleaning it with a specific product, although if it starts to fail due to a short-circuit problem, it...

    By BOB CHRISTIE, Associated Press PHOENIX (AP) — Two independent audits of election equipment in Arizona's most populous county found no modified software, malicious software or incorrect counting equipment, and none of the computers or equipment were connected to the internet. However, the state Senate wants its own audit and a judge will decide if it gets access to ballots and other materials that Republican lawmakers are seeking. The independent audit results released by Maricopa County on Tuesday also included a “logic and accuracy test” by one of the certified firms that examined the equipment. It confirmed multiple earlier tests overseen by the county and the Arizona secretary of state's office that found the tabulation equipment properly counted votes. Hand counts of a sample of ballots als came out perfect. A review of the county's contract with its machine provider, Dominion Voting Systems, by an accounting firm is expected to be completed March 31. Republicans who control the Arizona Senate are demanding the county turn over the vote-counting machines and 2.1 million ballots so it can audit the results that...

    New York : He was vaccinated before assuming the presidency Photo: Alex Wong / . Joe Biden admitted yesterday that life may not return to normal in 2021 due to COVID-19 mutations and potential disruptions in US vaccine production. In a separate statement, also yesterday Dr. Anthony Fauci said that the new variations of the virus mean that the government and companies “will have to be agile to adapt easily to make versions of the vaccine specifically targeting any prevalent mutation. ” Fauci is considered the most important infectious disease doctor in the country and has been an advisor to the governments of Donald Trump and Biden, on the pandemic. Biden stated when visiting a Pfizer vaccine factory in Portage, Michigan that virus mutations and unforeseen failures in vaccine production could extend the social and economic consequences of the pandemic. “I believe that we will get closer to normal later this year. God willing, this Christmas will be different from the last. But I can’t commit to you. There are other strains of the virus....
    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – With extra law enforcement on standby, Gov. Ron DeSantis said Tuesday there remains no indication of potentially violent protesters arriving at the state Capitol to mark President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday. “We have more law enforcement at the state Capitol. I don’t think anyone showed up at the state Capitol all week. Maybe someone will come tomorrow. I don’t know,” DeSantis told reporters during an appearance in Cape Coral on Tuesday. “So, we’ve basically heeded some of those warnings. But I can tell you nothing’s materialized so far.” On Friday, DeSantis activated the Florida National Guard to assist state and local law enforcement, in response to an FBI warning of potential violent protests in state capitals in the wake of the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump. Contrary to expectations that protesters would gather outside of the Florida Capitol on Sunday and Monday, the scene was relatively quiet. State and local law enforcement officers could be seen in doorways and on the rooftop of the Capitol building, along with...
    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer—soon to be the Senate majority leader—is calling for the domestic terrorists who attacked the Capitol to be added to the no-fly list. Schumer urged that move in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray additionally calling for the insurrectionists to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Videos of rioters learning they couldn't fly home have become popular online content after American Airlines banned some and others were blocked or removed by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).  As tempting as it is to think about these violent terrorists being banned from air travel, and as much as they should absolutely face consequences for their actions, there are serious problems with the no-fly list, as the ACLU has highlighted repeatedly over the years. For instance, “innocent, law-abiding Americans have found themselves subject to relentless hassles, interrogation and searches every time they try to travel by air.  They may share similar names with those who have been placed on suspect lists, or be the victims of random error, malicious discrimination, or mysterious bureaucratic...
    The two U.S. Senate runoff elections in Georgia that will determine whether Democrats or Republicans are the majority party in the chamber remained too close to call early Wednesday morning. But regardless of the outcome, President-elect Joe Biden will face a closely divided Senate that will make it difficult for him to govern. If either of the two Republican incumbents — Sens. David Perdue or Kelly Loeffler — winds up winning, the GOP will hold a narrow 51-49 majority over Democrats in the Senate. If both win, Republicans will hold a 52-48 majority. This would enable a united Republican Party to block legislation backed by Biden and his fellow Democrats, forcing the incoming president to compromise on key initiatives.  But if Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock both win their races (Ossoff against Perdue and Warnock against Loeffler) Biden will face an emboldened progressive faction of Democrats intent on pushing their unpopular far-left polices. Biden's embrace of these policies could lead to Democratic losses in the 2022 midterm elections, possibly giving control of both the House and Senate to Republicans....
    (CNN)Trump administration officials admit Operation Warp Speed fell well short of its target to get coronavirus shots to 20 million Americans in 2020, but there's no sign of an aggressive federal push to address the problem. Officials tell CNN they are sticking with their policy to leave it up to states to carry out vaccination campaigns. They are encouraging states to open up vaccines to a wider population -- beyond frontline health care workers and long-term care residents -- and urging them to more swiftly move vaccines to pharmacy settings in the hopes of speeding up vaccination rates. One American dies from Covid-19 every 33 seconds as the vaccine rollout hits snagsStates, meanwhile, say the federal government has been slow to realize the problem and should have given states more money earlier to develop specific plans. The presidential transition has made things more complicated as well, some officials said. More than 17 million vaccine doses have been distributed to states but just 4.8 million Americans have received their first dose of the vaccine, according to data from the Centers for...
    A self-driving Tesla prototype has successfully driven from San Francisco to Los Angeles with almost no human intervention. A time-lapse video from Whole Mars Catalog shows the driver's view of a Tesla Model 3 Performance upgraded with the company's Full Self-Driving (FSD) technology making the 380-mile journey. The electric sedan encountered numerous traffic environments, from highways to urban streets. It wasn't a completely driverless trek, though: In the video the human driver take control to avoid road debris and to charge the car along the way. There was also some 'erratic' driving on San Francisco's Market Street, Engadget reported. Introduced in October, FSD is billed as an 'advanced driver assistance system' that uses external cameras, radar, ultrasonic sensors and a powerful onboard computer to steer, change lanes, park, navigate on and off highways, and slow and stop at traffic lights.     Scroll down for video   Tesla aficionado Whole Mars Catalog used the carmaker's still-beta Full Self-Driving (FSD) tech to take a Model 3 from San Francisco to Los Angeles A select number of Tesla owners have been invited to test the technology...
    A small number of recovered COVID-19 patients who had no previous history of mental health problems are developing severe psychotic symptoms, the New York Times reported.  Medical experts have observed multiple instances in the U.S. and globally of patients who’ve recovered from COVID-19 later developing “profound psychosis,” The Times reported. One New York City patient tried to strangle his cousin in bed after experiencing delusions about his cousin murdering him, and another patient in North Carolina developed paranoia about her children being kidnapped. The mother tried to save them by passing them through a fast-food restaurant drive-through window. Murder plots, hallucinations, paranoia: post-Covid psychosis is emerging in a small number of patients. While it’s expected to remain rare, doctors worldwide have reported a smattering of cases. https://t.co/i1Tn4Avfp9 — Pam Belluck (@PamBelluck) December 28, 2020 A British study has found that 10 of 153 patients hospitalized with COVID-19 experienced “new-onset psychosis,” while another study identified 10 patients with similar symptoms in one hospital in Spain.
