    Share this: New York will ban people from carrying firearms into many places of business unless the owners put up a sign saying guns are welcome, Gov. Kathy Hochul announced Wednesday, describing a deal with state legislative leaders that is being finalized. Hochul said lawmakers have agreed on the broad strokes of a gun control bill that the Democratic-led Legislature is poised to pass Thursday. The legislation — hurriedly written after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the state’s handgun licensing law — will include provisions that make it harder to apply for a permit to carry a gun outside the home and create more rules around firearm storage in homes and vehicles.

    A new index ranks Luxembourg as the top passport in the world for aspiring global citizens.   The small European country ranked No. 1 out of 199 places in the "Nomad Passport Index 2022" published by the tax and immigration consultancy Nomad Capitalist. While many passport rankings focus solely on visa-free travel, this index adds taxation, global perception, ability to obtain dual citizenship and personal freedoms into its scoring. "I don't think visa-free travel is all that matters," said CEO Andrew Henderson. For example, U.S. and Canadian passports are similar in terms of travel strength, he said. However, "if you're an American, you're subject to taxes … no matter where you live, and so those two passports should not be ranked next to each other."Five factorsHere is the index's methodology: Regarding tax policies, 10 points were assigned to places with worldwide taxation (United States) and 50 points for those with no tax (United Arab Emirates). Those that placed other tax restrictions on passport holders scored somewhere in between.The listHere's the top 50 list: The top 10 rankings remained unchanged from...

    For years, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in Ukraine have fought to be recognized as equal members of society. But now, as Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion imperils Ukraine’s very existence—and amid fears that LGBT activists are on a Russian kill list the U.S. intelligence community exposed in recent days—international organizations are working to protect LGBT Ukrainians who are working to save a country that has not yet accepted them as full citizens. “The main fear at this moment is that if they will be successful, that we lose everything that we have,” said Jul Sirous, the volunteer coordinator of KyivPride, which organizes Ukraine’s annual Equality March and works to expand LGBT equality in the country, often at great personal risk to its members. “Unfortunately, if this city will be occupied like other cities, then there will be some persecution against LGBT people.” Speaking on a Zoom call from Kyiv, where she had gone three days without sleep as Russian forces closed in, Sirous told The Daily Beast while some are seeking safe haven in Western Europe, many LGBT...
    TRENDS come and go, but regret is forever, especially if you choose tattoos that age poorly and look outdated in just a few years. Herchell Carrasco, a California tattoo artist, shared five super-trendy tattoos that he expects the wearers to regret within a decade of putting the ink on their bodies. 5California-based tattoo artist Herchell Carrasco revealed the trendy designsCredit: Tiktok 5A classic infinity symbol was first on the list of regrettable inkCredit: Tiktok He presented a quick list on TikTok, showing example photos and explaining why some of the designs are ones to skip. INFINITY SYMBOL Herchell started out with an image of the all-too-popular infinity sign symbol. "Maybe wait on that infinity sign," Herchell warned. That includes its variants: an infinity sign paired with a cross, the word "love," or a flock of birds is just as tacky as the original formula. MICRO TATTOOS Another popular trend is micro tattoos, which Herchell says don't age well. The tiny lines of images or text tend to bleed and fade. Luckily, micro tattoos are small enough that coverups – or...
    MILLIONS of food stamp claimants are once again getting an automatic benefit boost as a majority of states have extended their support for February. The extension comes as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to hit throughout the country. 1Around 42million people currently receive food stampsCredit: Getty In April 2021, USDA announced that the federal government would provide an extra $1billion per month to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

    Senate Democrats are trying to get rid of the filibuster for voting rights legislation. This shouldn’t be a controversial decision, and in some ways, it isn’t; Democratic Sens. Krysten Sinema of Arizona and Joe Machin of West Virginia are the biggest obstacles. When Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer opened the Senate session on Tuesday, he reminded folks that the “eyes of the nation” will be watching what happens with voting rights, as reported by CNN. Specifically, the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act covers several important dimensions in terms of voting access. The package protects access to early voting, as well as voting by mail and makes Election Day a national holiday—changes that could be huge for the average working person or parent in the nation. The bill also allows the Justice Department to intervene if necessary when it comes to states that have a history of interfering with voting. So, why are Sinema and Manchin holding out? The bill allegedly has their support, but apparently not enough for them to get rid of the Republican filibuster using what is sometimes called...
    GOING to the shops is the place where you're most likely to catch Covid, experts have warned as they released a list of highly contagious activities. A Government-led study based on the daily activities of 10,000 people found outdoor sports was the next highest spreader. 1Doing the weekly shop is where you're most likely to catch Covid, a study has foundCredit: Getty SAGE's Virus Watch Study found this could be due to "social activities" linked to sports as well as the physical activity itself. The next most infectious place to visit are pubs and restaurants followed by using public transport. It comes as a string of hugely positive studies show Omicron IS milder than other strains, with the first official UK report revealing the risk of hospitalisation is 50 to 70 per cent lower than with Delta.

    COVID-19 symptoms are different depending on your age sex and profession, experts have revealed. The NHS states that the most common Covid symptoms include a new persistent cough, a high temperature and a loss of taste or smell - but new research says this could differ based on various factors. 4The new data revealed that women are more likely to suffer from a persistent cough - while men were more likely to experience shortness of breathCredit: Getty - Contributor Researchers tested a variety of symptoms and found that the most notable differences in symptoms was present between those aged 16-59 years compared to older age groups 60-80+.

    Expect to see a lot of people wearing Baby Yoda costumes from “The Mandalorian”. (CNN) – Halloween is fast approaching, and while it will be different this year due to the pandemic, that doesn’t mean that people won’t decorate their homes or dress up. Google has compiled a list of the top searches for Halloween costumes, and it should come as no surprise that outfits like Batman, Baby Yoda, Harley Quinn, and Fortnite are in the top 50. The trend meter list analyzes searches nationally, but can be filtered to a local search. Baby Yoda may have ranked higher if you had combined searches for Yoda and Baby Yoda, coming in at 43 and 47, respectively. Interestingly, Bear made the top 25, which could perhaps be a nod to the Bear 747 winning Fat Bear Week 2020. Google’s list is dominated by generic costume ideas, such as witches, angels, and demons, showing that people in the US are uncreative when it comes to selecting Halloween costumes.

    People are constantly moving into D.C., and constantly moving out of D.C. In the second quarter of 2021, 33% of apartment searches in D.C. were out-of-towners looking to relocate here, while 28% of D.C. residents searching for an apartment were looking out of town, according to apartments for rent listing site Apartment List. Some of the most common destinations moving either in or out are the same: Boston and New York City. “Those are big cities that have pretty closely intertwined local economies with D.C. So, a lot of professionals that work in D.C. probably have professional networks that expand into New York and Boston, and so I think we do see a lot of cross flow between those markets,” said Christopher Salviati, housing economist at Apartment List. D.C.’s big city nearest neighbor Baltimore is also in the top five for both inbound and outbound apartment rental searches between the two cities. Out-of-towners coming to D.C. often have bigger budgets for renting, according to Apartment List research. That can have an impact on the local rental market. “If you’ve got...

    (CNN)Amid a significant increase in the number of migrants showing up at the US southern border, a group of Republican lawmakers spoke on Monday in El Paso, Texas, to criticize the Biden administration's immigration policy.Among the more notable claims made were comments from GOP House leader Kevin McCarthy, who said that people on the terror watch list were now attempting to enter the US through the southern border."They're now finding people from Yemen, Iran, Turkey. People on the terror watch list they're catching. And they're rushing it all at once," McCarthy told Fox News. He suggested during a news conference that recently detained individuals on the terror watch list were also coming from Sri Lanka and China. Rep. John Katko, who was also part of the Republican cohort visiting the border, echoed McCarthy's claim on Fox News Tuesday morning, saying that the US Border Patrol told him they had encountered migrants on the terror watch list.

    States have begun lifting eligibility requirements for COVID-19 vaccines as regular shipments continue to climb. So far, roughly 72 million people have received at least one dose of a vaccine, or roughly a quarter of the adult population, at a rate of about 2.4 million shots given each day. The United States is on pace to cover 75% of the population in about five months. Nearly half of all adults to have received at least one dose are 65 and older, the age group at highest risk of severe cases of COVID-19. The total number of seniors to be vaccinated so far has reached about 18.7 million, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The pace is ahead of President Biden's goals. His early objective was to administer 100 million shots in 100 days, a goal considered unambitious by public health experts. Below are the states that have taken steps to make the vaccine accessible to all adults. Note that the two-shot Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine has been deemed safe for people 16 and older, while...

Public health experts in the area say the town had to clamp down on rule breakers in order to see a reduction in cases. Rhosyn Harris from Northamptonshire public heath said daily meetings were taking place in the town involving people from the police department as well as environmental health....
    CASES of the coronavirus are still rising in 51 areas across England and this interactive map reveals if your area is on the list. Official data from Public Health England (PHE) shows that cases have fallen in 83 per cent of areas, with four remaining unchanged over the last week. This time last week, just 16 areas were recording a rise in cases with Newark and Sherwood in Nottinghamshire the worst affected. But the latest report from PHE for the seven days to February 20 shows that 51 of the 315 local authority areas in England have seen a rise in rates. Four have remained unchanged with Doncaster in Yorkshire remaining at 186.3 cases per 100,000. Wyre Forest in Worcestershire has stayed at 132.2, Oxford is at 100.4 and Warwick is at 99.5 The infection rates across the country comes as Education Secretary Gavin Williamson is scheduled to address the House of Commons today as kids are set to be back in the classroom in a matter of weeks.

    THINGS change, don’t they? Back in my day it was the kids who didn’t want to go to school. And the teachers who got really cross about them playing truant. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates... 14Getting our children back to school and educated is vitally importantCredit: AFP - Getty In 2021, though, it’s the children who are apparently desperate to be back at their desks. And the teachers who are, how shall I put it, a bit, y’know, reluctant. Well, I say “the teachers”. I heard one Welsh headmistress on the radio saying how lovely it was to see the little faces of her infant pupils making their way through the school gates. My guess is that quite a lot of ordinary teachers would feel the same way. It’s the unions that are the problem. There have been plenty of heroes during this pandemic. THWARTED PLANS Obviously, the frontline medical staff in our hospitals. The bus and train drivers. The brilliant British researchers breaking their necks to create a vaccine as soon as...
    CASES of the coronavirus are still rising in 13 areas in England and this interactive map reveals if your local authority is on the list. Data from Public Health England (PHE) states that over the last seven days cases have fallen in 96 per cent of places. ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates... The fall in cases comes as Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to launch an advertising blitz which will urge Brits to give it one more push in the third national coronavirus lockdown. Mr Johnson will reveal his roadmap out of restrictions on February 22 and the new adverts will urge people to stay at home in order to get Brits over the line when it comes to curbing infection rates. Mr Johnson vowed to be driven by data not dates in his “cautious and prudent” lifting of Covid restrictions, starting on March 8 with reopening schools. He has repeatedly stressed that restrictions will be eased cautiously - and urged Brits to show patience in the months ahead.  Data from NHS Test and...
    COVID-19 infections are still rising in 16 areas in England and this interactive map reveals if your local authority is on the list. Official data from Public Health England (PHE) states that cases have fallen in 95 per cent of areas (298). ???? Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates The latest data from PHE comes as a major study revealed that infections have dropped two thirds since January. Scientists hailed the plummeting cases as “really encouraging” yesterday, but warned pressure on hospitals must ease before we unlock the country. Britain’s biggest virus infection survey found the R rate is down to 0.7, even as low as 0.6 in London. The React study, by Imperial College London, carried out swab tests on 85,000 people across England between February 6 and 13. They revealed all regions of England have seen a fall in cases - with London, the South East and West Midlands seeing the biggest dip. Around 52 people per 10,000 are testing positive for the virus now, which is similar to the rates we saw in...
    ANOTHER 1.7 million Brits have been told to shield from Covid-19, joining the 2.2 million already on the list. People who were already shielding included those with severe respiratory conditions or people undergoing treatment, but the new list takes into account your ethnicity and weight. ????

Sir Simon Stevens, chief executive of the NHS previously said high levels of obesity may have fuelled Brit fatalities. The UK is the second fattest nation in Europe, after Malta. More than a quarter of Brits are obese – with a body mass index over 30. It compares to just one in 35 in the 70s. He warned that overweight Brits were twice as likely to be killed by Covid-19 than those at a health weight. Studies have also...

In July 2020, they were given the all-clear to meet up to six people outdoors while observing social distancing with those from different households. Anyone who lived alone was allowed to form a "support bubble" with one other household, meaning they could spend time with each other inside their homes. The shielding policy was paused in August 2020, but it was reintroduced - in the form of advice -...

    NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) — First in, first out. Securing the call for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment is as simple as signing up and waiting for a few hundred-thousand people to get theirs first while your name creeps toward the top of the list. That list however — which right now is supposed to only contain healthcare workers, seniors and those with underlying medical conditions — likely has others on it too. Public health officials acknowledge young, healthy people are getting on the list, and getting doses. “It’s technically possible that people are gaming the system,” said Matt Richardson, the director of Denton County Public Health. “I think that’s minimized. We’re asking people to do the right thing.” Public health officials are asking, but no one is really checking. There is no system to confirm if those enrolling really meet the eligibility criteria, and vaccine distributors are consumed with the logistics of getting the shots out. “Our goal is not to get in the way,” said Vinny Taneja, who heads public health in Tarrant County. “But we do know there are...
    THE NHS is being urged to add so-called "Covid tongue" to its list of official coronavirus symptoms. Experts fear as many as one in five cases of Covid-19 are being missed because the unusual sign isn't being formally recognised. ????

It can include a swollen tongue, small red or white bumps and unusual mouth ulcers. Prof Spector, an epidemiologist at King's College London (KCL), said on Twitter: "One in five people with Covid still present with less common symptoms that don't get on the official PHE [Public Health England] list - such as skin rashes. "Seeing increasing numbers of Covid tongues and strange mouth ulcers." It means that up to 20 per cent of...

    YOU know how it goes, good kids get presents from Santa at Christmas while those who misbehave get coal - with no child EVER wanting to end up on the big man's naughty list. But one mum was sick of her sons' constant fighting and, instead of presents, gave her kids a brutal letter from Santa explaining why their stockings were empty. 5The mum explained that her kids were on Santa's 'naughty list' this yearCredit: Getty Images - Getty Posting in the Christmas Mums Facebook group, the Australian parent revealed that she wanted to teach her kids a lesson to help "curb their bad behaviour".

The whole 'Santa wont come' thing… pretty sure kids know we are full of cr*p." 5She gave them the brutal note and explained that...

    Get ready to hear some doggone silly pandemic pet names at your local dog park this year. New pet owners have tapped into the 2020 zeitgeist to name their newly adopted dogs and cats, according to Rover, with some dubbing their furry quarantine buddies with names like “Covi,” “Rona” and “Corona.” The site for pet sitters and dog walkers released its annual list, the 100 Most Popular Male and Female Dog Names, for 2020 and found that pandemic-inspired names were trending for new pawrents, with the moniker Covi up 1,159% in popularity, followed by Rona (69%), Corona (24%) and Covie. “Honorable mentions for the handful of dogs and cats named COVID and Fauci, and a very special shoutout to these two unique pets: a dog named Rona Von Covid and a cat named Dr. Fauci,” wrote Rover in its report. Another pandemic pastime also made its way onto the list, with the name Sourdough gracing the list for the first time after the much-hyped bread-baking trend. Pet adoptions were through the roof from the start of the pandemic, with...
