    Washington (CNN)A Democratic member of the House select committee investigating the Capitol insurrection stressed Sunday that there are still a lot of unanswered questions about text messages sent by Secret Service officials on January 5 and 6, 2021."One would assume they had done everything possible to preserve those records, to analyze them, to determine what kind of things went right or went wrong that day and their practices and procedures. And, you know, we are looking into this, that's why we're subpoenaing them," Virginia Rep. Elaine Luria told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union." "We want to make sure that we understand the bottom line, like, where are these text messages? Can they be recovered? And we've subpoenaed them because they're legal records that we need to see for the committee," she added. The comments come as the select committee zeroes in on erased text messages from the US Secret Service sent on January 5 and 6, 2021, shortly after they were requested by oversight officials investigating the agency's response to the US Capitol riot, according to a...
    In this article .SPXVIDEO3:0703:07Fed will likely be more accommodative in the back-end of 2022: Kevin O'LearySquawk Box AsiaAs interest rates in the U.S. rise, investors can put their money to work by looking at companies in the S&P 500 that can "increase their prices" and "maintain margins," Kevin O'Leary told CNBC. "There's plenty of them. That's a good place to hide when you're getting a 2% dividend yield," the celebrity investor said Thursday on "Squawk Box Asia." O'Leary's comments came after the Federal Reserve increased its benchmark interest rate by half a percentage point on Wednesday, in line with market expectations. Fed Chair Jerome Powell had indicated that raising rates by 75 basis points "is not something the committee is actively considering," even though market expectations have leaned heavily toward the Fed hiking by three-quarters of a percentage point in June. Similarly, O'Leary cast doubts on such a steep hike, adding that markets are still "in the cycle of growth." "I don't think that's going to happen. You've got lots of concerns in Europe, you've got the Russian invasion of...

    Singer Grimes said Twitter is responsible for a lot of issues in 'public mental health' in an interview days after her ex-partner and 'best friend' Elon Musk bought the social media site for $44 billion. The 'We Appreciate Power' singer added that despite the platform's problems, she still has various 'fake Twitter accounts' that she uses to argue with people with different opinions.   'I, like, go into different algorithmic bubbles to try to, like, understand,' she told MIT artificial intelligence researcher Lex Fridman. 'I'll keep getting in fights with people and realize we're not actually fighting.' The Canadian artist, born Claire Boucher, mostly kept quiet about her thoughts on Musk's recent purchase.  Grimes and Musk began dating in 2018 and have two children, son X Æ A-Xii and daughter Y, who was born via surrogate in December.  Some Twitter employees and users are worried that the billionaire may simultaneously stifle free speech and give voice to dangerous ideas. 'Due to my proximity to the current dramas, I honestly feel that I should not have opinions about this because, if Elon ends up getting...
    OPTICAL illusions have kept us on our toes for centuries. They can be fun and frustrating, depending on how long you stare at them. 1Did you see a rabbit or a duck first?Credit: Shutterstock But this rabbit-duck illusion has been fooling viewers for years. What you see first can actually reveal a lot about your personality. Psychologist Richard Wiseman did a controlled test to find out how what we see in the picture links to our personality traits. He found that people who can see both the the rabbit and the duck were more creative. Read more on optical illusionsLOOK OF LOVE What you see first in this optical illusion tells a lot about how you love However if you are unable to flick between the two images with ease it says something very different about you.

You might be able to see both if you tilt your head, or move the paper, but you're still not as naturally creative as the...
    Actor Sean Penn said Tuesday on FNC’s “Hannity” that there were “a lot of reasons” he did not trust the host Sean Hannity at the beginning of their interview. Hannity said, “Thanks for coming in. I appreciate it. I made a phone call to you. I read you were there. The story interested me.” He continued, “I said I’m interested in the work you are doing and why you were there even before the war started and this documentary. Do you remember what you first said to me?” Penn said, “I do.” Hannity said, “What did you say?” Penn said, “I said I don’t trust you.” Hannity said, “Is there a reason you didn’t trust me?” Penn said, “There are a lot of reasons I don’t trust you. A lot of people don’t trust their spouse. But yet, we have to get on with life. I never felt this way about where our country is and what I experienced emotionally in Ukraine.

    SIX questions that can apparently reveal a lot about your personality and the way you act. Rather than just knowing if you're an introvert or extrovert, or night owl or an early bird, the questions can reveal fundamental points of your personality. 1These simple questions can tell you a lot about your personality One of the first questions of the test highlighted by Psychology Today was: Do you like to follow a recipe exactly or tweak it? If you enjoy tweaking recipes rather than following them directly, it could mean you enjoy doing things your own way. Others who follow the directions exactly and enjoy doing so can appreciate structure and rules in their lives. The second question posed was: When you're on vacation, do you enjoy a fully planned itinerary or just going with the flow?

    With more people returning to work, the D.C. region has seen an increase in drivers and that number could continue to shoot up. “It has been a steady climb,” said Mary DePompa, WTOP Traffic anchor. Despite the rise in gas prices, the boom in the number of drivers appears to be a recent trend. More Transportation News DePompa said the changes are week-by-week. “We have definitely seen a steady increase in flow in traffic since the beginning of the year,” she said. The traffic center expects this increase to continue as more federal workers return in-person, according to DePompa. She also said the morning rush traffic has increased “twofold since the beginning of the year.” WTOP’s traffic center has also seen an increase in calls from tipsters, which indicates an increase in drivers. An increase in motorists also means an increase in accidents and traffic incidents. “The more people on the road, the more accidents,” said DePompa. She described the region as unique, considering that a lot of people who work in D.C. may not actually live there,...
    HIDDEN in this bizarre optical illusion are two animals - but which one you can see reveals a lot about you. Social media users have been left scratching their heads after the mind-boggling image was shared on Twitter as people try, but fail, to see both creatures. 1There are two creatures hidden in the optical illusionCredit: Twitter / PamelaApostolo1 At first glace, the illusion appears to just feature scores of psychedelic looking lines. But if you squint, most people can either see a moose or cat. And according to the Twitter user who posted it, Pamela Apostolo, which creature you can see is all down to your brain. "Depending on how your brain works (left brain, right brain) you see a cat or a moose in this pattern," she wrote. "Whatever animal you see isn’t part of the image, just an optical illusion created by your own brain. "If you zoom in on any of the features you see, the illusion disappears."

    Police have concluded that actor Bob Saget died after hitting the back of his head on his bed's headboard, causing the major traumatic injuries that led to his death.  Saget was found dead of a brain bleed on January 9 in his hotel room at the Orlando Ritz-Carlton, though his autopsy report lists his injuries as being much more severe than a simple bump on the head.  Saget's family have filed an injunction to prevent the release of further records about the tragedy, though police are now saying he most likely slammed his head on a wooden portion of his headboard and went unconscious, sources close to the investigation told TMZ on Wednesday.  Saget’s death was ruled an accident with no foul play and sources told TMZ that the electronic front door lock to his hotel room shows no one else entered the room after him the night before. It was only opened again the next afternoon, when hotel staff found him dead.  Candace Cameron Bure, who was Saget’s co-star on Full House and its reboot Fuller House, said developments in the...

    Former congressman Jason Chaffetz reacted to Ghislaine Maxwell's conviction on five of six counts in the federal sex trafficking case involving her late lover, pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, on "The Five" Wednesday and said that there's a lot more to the story that the federal government should investigate.  "I'm glad she's going to essentially spend the rest of her life in jail. And I hope that it is," Chaffetz said. "But there's also a lot more to this story … There are a lot of other people that were complicit … If the federal government is going to do their job, they need to go after those people as well," he said.

    Ukrainian soldiers stationed along Ukraine’s border with Russia in the eastern Donbas region told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) on Tuesday they “don’t believe a [Russian] invasion is coming” to the region as speculated by Western media in recent weeks. The U.S. government-funded RFE/RL published a handful of interviews with four border soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on December 7 that “downplay recent warnings from Kyiv and Western intelligence agencies that Moscow may be planning a major new offensive.” “[M]ost soldiers don’t believe an invasion is coming,” a female Ukrainian soldier named Iryna told the broadcaster. “The front line doesn’t feel any different now than before,” she said. “Another reason they [Ukrainian soldiers] don’t buy these rumors is because there are a lot of lies in our country,” Iryna revealed. “Everyone in powerful positions lies. Our president promised to end the war within a week of coming to power. Now, two years on, here we are,” she assessed. Iryna referred to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, elected to the nation’s highest office in May 2019 amid an ongoing war between the...
    London (CNN Business)Managing America's relationship with its biggest economic frenemy is one of US President Joe Biden's toughest challenges.So when he holds a virtual summit with President Xi Jinping later on Monday, issues like supply chains, subsidies and tariffs, a pullback in China's vast property sector and the global energy crunch could feature prominently in discussions.The United States and China remain codependent, as American consumers snap up products manufactured in Chinese factories and companies scramble for parts sourced from Asia. Solving the climate crisis requires China's cooperation, while Wall Street money managers are drawn by the market's potential, even though many have been burned over the past year by a ferocious regulatory crackdown.With this in mind, Biden is expected to emphasize the areas in which Beijing and Washington can cooperate. But growing tensions over issues such as Taiwan, Hong Kong and human rights have also driven a wedge between the two countries and their economies, complicating the talks."One should not hold out false hope that the Xi-Biden virtual summit will fix the fundamental differences between China and America or change...
    (CNN)An Indiana couple says they took their family to get their annual flu shot at the local Walgreens last month, but all of them, including their 4- and 5-year-old, were given a Covid-19 vaccine by mistake. Mistakes like this can happen, but they're incredibly rare, public health experts say. Pharmacists and other specialists who give the shots say there are dozens of safeguards built into the system to limit the possibility of human error. And, in the case of Covid-19 vaccines, if someone is getting a second dose, for example, and accidentally gets a Moderna vaccine, when they had Pfizer's first, that likely won't cause side effects or other health problems, according to findings from an ongoing National Institutes of Health study.FDA vaccine advisers recommend emergency use authorization for booster dose of Modernas Covid-19 vaccine"A single bad situation like that gets a lot of coverage, but hundreds of millions of doses and second doses have been administered in a very effective, accurate and careful way," said Jennifer Kertanis, the director of health for the Farmington Valley Health District in Connecticut...

    ‘Borat’ Star Maria Bakalova Cast in Rom-Com ‘The Honeymoon’ 5 things to know before the stock market opens Tuesday © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Chandler Jones was back at Cardinals practice on Monday in a welcome development for the defense in Arizona this season. Jones’ trade request and absence from the field with an undisclosed injury cast some doubt about what his role would be for the Cardinals, but his return allows for thoughts of what he’ll bring off the edge this season. Markus Golden is going to be on the opposite edge much of the time and he shared his view of the year to come on Monday. Golden predicted “a lot” of sacks for the duo and sent a warning to opposing offenses. “Chandler, man, that’s the goat,” Golden said, via Bob McManaman of the Arizona Republic. “That’s one of the best players to ever play in the NFL. I’ve been playing with Chandler since my second year on the league, so I’ve learned a lot from...
    Olivia Newton-John has a new update concerning her health. The singer/actress was first diagnosed with cancer in 1992 and overcame the illness once more in 2013. In 2017, the "Grease" star was told that cancer had metastasized and spread to her bones. The 72-year-old recently told Closer Weekly that she feels "good." "There are a lot of herbs that I take," Newton-John explained to the outlet. "And over the last 10 years, I’ve used cannabis.

    Families mourn the loss of loved ones who hesitated on the Covid-19 vaccine Egypt souvenir market pins hopes on tourism resurgence Dr Death Joshua Jackson as Christopher Duntsch Peacock’s true-crime thriller Dr. Death might seem somewhat ill-timed, hitting the streamer at the tail end of a pandemic in which the medical community has been celebrated for treating the flood of patients who came down with COVID-19, not to mention the scientists who developed the vaccines helping people return to normal. But the team behind the limited series, based on the hit Wondery podcast of the same name, stresses that their show is based on a specific, true story, that of Dr. Christopher Duntsch (Joshua Jackson) a rising neurosurgeon in the Dallas medical community whose patients ended up seriously injured or dead. And, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter at the Tribeca Festival, they argue that it’s the series’ storyline about the other doctors, played by Christian Slater and Alec Baldwin, who worked to stop Duntsch that speaks to this time in which physicians have been hailed as heroes. “Yes, the...

    AS the US faces cyber threats from foreign countries, the FBI is calling for a heightened response from the US government. FBI Director Christopher Wray called on officials to step up their response to a series of cybersecurity attacks, comparing them to the 9/11 terror attacks. 4FBI Director Christopher Wray urged US officials to take the recent cyberattacks more seriouslyCredit: Reuters 4Wray compared the cyberattacks to the terror attacks on September 11, 2001Credit: AP The country has faced back-to-back cyber attacks in the last few weeks, which Wray compared to the 9/11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people. "There are a lot of parallels, there's a lot of importance, and a lot of focus by us on disruption and prevention," Wray told the Wall Street Journal. The Russia-based cyberattacks revealed vulnerabilities in US infrastructure, much of which is privately owned. There were critical shutdowns and delays to America's food and gasoline sectors. "There's a shared responsibility, not just across government agencies but across the private sector and even the average American," Wray said. 4The JBS hacking caused...

    Max Kellerman put a target on NFL Draft boards earlier this week, after noticing the stock of Black quarterback prospects tends to fall, while white signal callers see their value rise. Fox Sports Radio host and Outkick founder Clay Travis slammed Kellerman’s opinion, believing it was using sports as a way to divide us. “Guess who the latest, to jump on the NFL is racist bandwagon is? Max ‘the clown’ Kellerman” Travis said. “Kellerman said he was concerned and had his eye on, the fact that the first three picks in the NFL Draft could be white guy, white guy, white guy. Why does that matter?” “Now we are talking about it being racist that Trey Lance and Justin Fields both may end up in the top-10, but they didn’t end up one, two or three. Come on. This is such a clown argument,” Travis continued. “It seeks to use sports to divide us and continues to play the same identity politics cards that have led to the noxious nature of our current political environment.” Travis was responding to...
    (CNN)With millions of Americans being vaccinated against Covid-19 every day, a heated debate is underway -- do these people need proof of immunization in the form of a vaccine passport?Just like a national passport, a vaccine passport could allow the bearer entrance to a venue, like a crowded concert, or a foreign country that demands proof of vaccination in addition to a visa and valid national passport.Vaccination cards from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention aren't quite the same as a vaccine passport. Though they are a record of what vaccine a person got and when, they can easily be forged. What exactly is a vaccine passport?A vaccine passport is just proof that a person has been immunized against Covid-19. It could be in the form of a smartphone app or a written certificate, for those who don't have smartphones.

    The WHO-led team investigating COVID-19 was denied access to important data and much of the research for their report was gathered by Chinese scientists. It is unclear how WHO team members were chosen and Chinese participants approved the report before its release. The WHO’s director-general, the White House, the U.S. State Department and 13 other countries expressed concern that the WHO team’s report was compromised. A World Health Organization-led team released a report Tuesday on the origins of the coronavirus pandemic, but critics responded to its findings with skepticism. Chinese authorities silenced scientists, resisted and delayed an investigation, and deleted and denied access to data. Much of the research for the report was gathered by Chinese scientists, then presented to the WHO team. The WHO asked the U.S. to recommend experts for the team issuing the report, but it did not contact the three that the U.S. selected, and U.S. officials are unsure how team members were chosen, according to the Wall Street Journal. China has not made of its own participants public, according to the Journal.  Chinese...

    (CNN)The Biden administration is facing an increasing number of unaccompanied migrant children crossing into the United States, placing added strain on a system operating under limited capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic. US Customs and Border Protection has attributed the increase in arrests in part to instability in home countries, exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic and perceptions of instant shifts in US immigration policies. The pandemic has taken a dramatic toll on Latin America, where Covid-19 cases and deaths have soared and economies once projected to grow have been decimated. The region was also hit with two devastating hurricanes. The decline in economic growth in 2020, according to the Congressional Research Service, is expected to worsen income inequality and poverty in the region.Administration officials have urged migrants not to come to the US, arguing that changes to the US immigration system will take time to make. "They need to wait. It takes time to rebuild the system from scratch," Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Monday.

    Rosanna Arquette has warned that there are 'a lot more Harvey Weinsteins' in an interview to launch her new podcast.  The Bafta-winning actor and activist said that the Hollywood producer's conviction and 23-year jail sentence in March last year for decades of sexual assault was 'the tip of the iceberg' and that 'there are a lot of spiders in that web'.  The 61-year-old, who rose to fame in the 1980s and is known for her roles in Desperately Seeking Susan and Pulp Fiction, said that the perpetrators would be named 'in good time' but that she feared further damage to her career, even after the launch of the Me Too movement.   Many women spoke up about how the powerful producer, known for a string of Oscar-winning hits, allegedly 'ruined' the careers of the women who spoke out against him, including Arquette.   Actor and Me Too activist Rosanna Arquette, pictured at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, has warned in a new interview that there 'a lot more Harvey Weinsteins' Arquette gave the interview to launch...
    Rosanna, you’re making a big mistake. Those were the words Harvey Weinstein is said to have uttered to Rosanna Arquette after she refused his predatory advances. Following that disturbing encounter, Arquette—who rose to stardom in the ‘80s with stunning turns in Desperately Seeking Susan, Silverado, After Hours, and The Big Blue—saw her pay slashed for the Weinstein-shepherded Pulp Fiction, and a false rumor spread that she was difficult to work with (which she suspects Weinstein started). Arquette was one of the first women to speak out against Weinstein, relaying her story of abuse to The New Yorker and The New York Times, and subsequently appearing in the Hulu documentary Untouchable. Later, journalist Ronan Farrow revealed that Weinstein’s defense team had hired the Israeli intelligence agency Black Cube to compile a dossier on Arquette. Even though Weinstein is behind bars, serving a 23-year prison sentence for his reign of terror, Arquette still believes that she’s lost professional opportunities due to her speaking out. “It’s like a spiderweb, and there are a lot of spiders in that web,” she tells me. But...
    Yankees’ ace Gerrit Cole sees potential in team’s pitching prospects: ‘There are high ceilings out there’ By: Andres Chavez December 19, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditNew York Yankees‘ ace Gerrit Cole is a seasoned veteran still in the prime of his career, at 30. However, he was once a rookie with the Pittsburgh Pirates, so he knows the value of having some experience and guidance in the staff to help young pitchers adjust to a very noticeable jump in competition level. According to what the Yankees frontline starter said in his appearance in Yankees Hot Stove this week, he plans to be a mentor to the young pitchers that are fighting for roster and rotation spots, most notably Deivi Garcia, Michael King, Nick Nelson, and Clarke Schmidt. With Cole in the fold and veterans AJ Burnett, Francisco Liriano, and Charlie Morton, the Pirates made the playoffs twice in the early 2010s. “Early in my career, I had a real blessing to play with a lot of veterans,” Cole said. “Some of the habits that...

    Back in April, Bill Gates warned that the United States could be facing a “nightmare scenario” with the coronavirus pandemic, but offered some hope that “we should be able to get out of this with the death number well short of” the projections “if we do the social distancing properly.” Since then, Gates has been critical of the U.S. response, including serious ongoing issues with testing and saying the credibility of the CDC and FDA have been hurt, and even arguing that the travel ban President Donald Trump has touted in cracking down early during the pandemic may have made things worse. In a new interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd — taped for this Sunday’s Meet the Press — Gates warned, “There are lots of additional deaths coming if we don’t get our act together.” He slammed continued delays in testing results and said, “We are running the worst testing system, in terms of who gets access to it, of any country.” Gates added it’s “not that hard to fix”: “You do have to admit that you haven’t done a good...
    Cardi B took Offset back once after he allegedly was caught cheating, and he publicly admitted he had been “a selfish, messed up husband.” But her husband reportedly continued to be unfaithful and not live up to his promise “to be a better person,” so the “WAP” rapper decided she was done, People reported. Cardi B, 27, on Tuesday filed for divorce from Offset, 28, in an Atlanta courthouse. “Offset has pretty much cheated the entire time (they’ve been together) but Cardi looked the other way because of the baby,” a source told People. “She also didn’t want to be embarrassed. But she’s had enough.” The couple has a 2-year-old daughter, Kulture, and Cardi B filed documents asking for legal and primary physical custody. TMZ, however, reported that Cardi B’s legal team will amend the documents because she wants Offset to have joint custody so that they can work out an amicable, co-parenting divorce. Cardi B also doesn’t want any financial support from the Migos rapper. Nonetheless, Cardi B’s documents also make it clear: She’s done with the marriage, according to...
    Ferrari’s operational woes have been seeping into their drivers’ performances throughout this season, and the aftermath of the same is painstakingly obvious. Sebastian Vettel has left a crater in his fans’ minds following a chain of disappointing outings. However, Charles Leclerc has managed to thrive throughout this ordeal, hinting at a bright future for the Prancing Stallion. Leclerc, in his first season with Sauber in 2018, managed to bag points on 10 different occasions. The young Monegasque attracted the attention of the scarlet side and prompting the Formula 1 behemoths to sign him in 2019 alongside Vettel. Charles Leclerc considers Ferrari his family Since arriving at Ferrari, Leclerc was overwhelmed and unsurprisingly so. The thought of competing with a 4-time World Champion breathing down your neck will seem daunting to even the most talented drivers. It had been his dream to race for the historic Italian automobile giants. During his early days at Ferrari, Leclerc maintained an arm’s distance to ensure that he didn’t interfere with the proceedings. He kept his head down and did what he was asked to do....
    DENVER (CBS4) — The Centers For Disease Control sent letters to governors across the nation — including to Colorado Gov. Jared Polis — telling them to have vaccine distribution sites ready by Nov. 1. The FDA has not yet approved a vaccine, and Colorado’s epidemiologist says there are still a lot of questions about how it will work. (credit: iStock/Getty Images) According to CBS News, the government is contracting with the company McKesson to distribute the vaccine to local health departments and doctors’ offices. The vaccine would be free to high-risk groups including healthcare workers, national security personnel, and nursing home residents. “I would say we have a lot to learn still about reinfection,” said Dr. Rachel Herlihy, State Epidemiologist, at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. “We know now that that seems to be possible but I think we have a lot to learn about what that means for long term herd immunity.” UCHealth is just one Colorado facility involved in testing a vaccine. That trial involves the vaccine being developed by Moderna.

    VIDEO3:3903:39Jim Cramer: This is a 'Tale of Two Cities' marketMad Money with Jim Cramer The stock market does not appear as strong as the headline numbers in the benchmark index may portray after taking a look at the performances of its components, CNBC's Jim Cramer said Thursday. While the big tech stocks have made significant gains that carried the S&P 500 back to record levels, most of the stocks in the broad average are down this year, he said. "When you get down into the weeds of this market, what you see is that there are a lot more losers than there are winners," said the "Mad Money" host, likening the stock market to a patch of grass. "That's the nature of the Covid economy, and now that there's no one in Washington willing to play gardener, maybe it's only a matter of time before the weeds overrun the entire patch." The major averages climbed in Thursday's session, despite the negative news of 1.1 million new unemployment claims that were filed in the week ended Aug. 15. More than 1...

    (WJZ)- The Washington football team name is in the process of being changed. For Indigenous people, the changing of the name is a long overdue victory. For author Stephen Graham Jones, whose book The Only Good Indians, released the day after the team announced it would be changing its name it was an odd feeling and one that seemed like an intertwining of fate. “It felt weird that this book came out one day after the Washington Redskins said they were going to change their name, which I’m thrilled about of course. I was always quite insulted by that,” said Graham Jones in an interview with CBS Local’s DJ Sixsmith. “The world is changing right now. I’m not at all saying my book is part of that but the whole world is being swept forward with the change. My book is just part of that world being swept ahead.” The new name of the team is still yet to be determined but, the organization has already said it will not be using Native American imagery in its new logo.

    Most coronavirus vaccine projects are in developed countries, prompting WHO to encourage developing countries to join efforts to find a cure. (Free Press Photo: .) A total of 17 candidate vaccines against coronavirus they are in clinical trials, but the time it will take until some of them are ready to be used on a large scale is still uncertain, declared on July 2 the World Health Organization (WHO). “We are encouraged by the progression these candidate vaccines have made through clinical evaluations and look forward to the results. Whether or not we will have a vaccine in a certain time will depend on factors that we cannot anticipate, “said the person responsible for monitoring these investigations at the WHO, Ana María Henao. However, he considered that he is on the right track because “There is a lot of consensus, a lot of joint work and a lot of collaboration” among all the instances that participate in these investigations. The WHO today concluded a two-day remote meeting to assess progress in global research on the technology needed to...
    NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says his league still is continuing with plans to restart the pro basketball season on July 30 amid the lessening restrictions due to the novel coronavirus, but “a lot of cases” could cause it to stop. Silver, in a Time 100 Talks interview on Tuesday, would not quantify “a lot” nor would he define the term “significant spread” that he used in a press conference with reporters on Friday. “Honestly … I’m not sure,” Silver said in the Time interview. “We have a panel of scientists, doctors, experts that are working with us. We’re going to see as we go. “Certainly, if we have a lot of cases, we’re going to stop. You cannot run from this virus.” Twenty-two of the NBA’s 30 teams are due to report to Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Bay Lake, Florida, near Orland on July 7 with the intention of playing a hybrid season/playoff closed-door competition at the resort without spectators beginning at the end of July. The NBA suspended its season on March 11 after Utah...
    VIDEO4:2704:27How social media is helping drive retail investors to stocks: BettermentETF Edge The rush of retail investors to the stock market has been a hot topic on Wall Street. Individual investors have increasingly taken advantage of trading platforms such as Robinhood during the Covid-19 crisis, with some of their top stock picks outperforming those of hedge fund managers. Some, like Astoria Portfolio Advisors' John Davi, ascribe the action to historically low interest rates driving buyers to find new sources of income. "The Fed has anchored interest rates near 0%, so, it's kind of forced people out [on] the risk curve," Davi, his firm's founder and chief investment officer, said Monday on CNBC's "ETF Edge." "I think that's ... a big catalyst to get a lot of people taking their money out of the bank and going into the stock market." But many retail traders have taken a liking to penny stocks and plays at risk of bankruptcy, suggesting they have higher risk appetites than they did in past economic slowdowns. One possible explanation for the phenomenon could be the rise...
    Tapping home equity is typically done through a cash-out refinance or a HELOC. (Photo by Melanie Stetson Freeman/The Christian Science Monitor via Getty Images) More homeowners are considering tapping home equity, either out of need or as a hedge against potential need, amid the economic uncertainty that the coronavirus pandemic has caused for millions of U.S. households. For homeowners with equity to tap, there are two basic ways — a cash-out refinance or a Home Equity Line of Credit. Both earned a bad reputation leading up to the housing collapse and financial crisis a little over a decade ago, but both are good personal finance options for responsible borrowers. A cash-out refinance gets the borrower an up-front pile of cash, dependent on the amount of home equity the owner has and how much of it a lender will allow to increase the new mortgage amount. But taking that lump sum also means a larger mortgage payment. A HELOC is like a really big credit card that can serve as an emergency lifeline. “Sometimes the cash-out refi is the best option...

    A Chicago pastor told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday that the violence and looting in the city in recent weeks “only destroys the things that we are striving so hard to advance in our community.” Pastor Corey Brooks of New Beginnings Church made the statement days after Chicago reportedly recorded 18 murders on May 31, the city’s deadliest day in 60 years. The grim milestone was reached on a day Chicago was roiled by another round of protests and looting following the Memorial Day death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis. The 18 deaths tallied by the University of Chicago Crime Lab made May 31, 2020, the single-most violent day in six decades, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday. The Crime Lab numbers go back only to 1961. On May 29 and May 30, there were seven murders. The 25 murders on those three days made for the most violent weekend in Chicago’s modern history, according to the paper.
