    Every day, around a thousand people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer. And although those dealt this blow come from all walks of life, they will be united by one terrifying question: is there a cure? The answer isn’t simple because cancer isn’t a simple disease — there are more than 200 types. Though they share a common mechanism — the rapid division of abnormal cells, which then destroy healthy tissue — there are multiple variables, from genetics to where the disease occurs in the body, that help determine your chance of survival. Consequently some forms — such as skin or testicular cancer — have, when detected early, a ten-year survival rate of 98 per cent. For others the prognosis is more bleak. For pancreatic cancer — which is very difficult to detect, meaning it has more time to spread and become resistant to treatment — the five year survival rate is 7 per cent, with 90 per cent of patients dying within two years of diagnosis. Yet with so much global brain power devoted to waging war on...

    President Joe Biden will unveil another round of sanctions on Russia and tighten existing ones during his visit to Europe this week, his national security adviser announced on Tuesday. Biden is due to leave the White House tomorrow ahead of a N.A.T.O. summit in Brussels on Thursday. 'He will have the opportunity to coordinate on the next phase of military assistance to Ukraine,' said National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan. 'He will join our partners in imposing further sanctions on Russia and tightening the existing sanctions to crack down on evasion and to ensure robust enforcement.'  The president will also unveil additional help for refugees and for civilians inside Ukraine, many of whom are trapped in besieged cities, he added. 'From Brussels, President Biden will travel to Poland where he will engage with US troops, who are now helping to defend NATO territory, and he will meet with experts involved in the humanitarian response,' said Sullivan.  'He will also hold a bilateral meeting with President Duda of Poland.'
    Some colleges and universities are also following suit. Michigan State University announced Friday that it would lift mask restrictions in some on-campus areas beginning today. Notably, however, masks will still be required in classes. Even the state universities in Oregon, one of the most COVID-paranoid states in the union, announced that they would lift mask mandates in the upcoming week. These jurisdictions have pointed to the updated CDC guidance to explain their change in tone. However, critics have pointed out that no new research has been conducted showing that masks are any more or less efficacious than they ever have been, and circumstantial evidence suggests that the CDC may have been subjected to political pressure by Democrats who are concerned that continuing COVID restrictions would cost them at the ballot box in 2022. At the end of this upcoming week, the number of jurisdictions in this country still enforcing a mask mandate will likely dwindle to a small handful of holdouts.

Banks made the announcement Monday evening, though it was presaged by the popular reality show judge’s cancellation of his Las Vegas show Sunday.

The Biden administration announced on Wednesday that the president will reconvene the Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate (MEF) — an Obama-era forum meant to enhance dialogue between major economies on climate.  A senior administration official told reporters that it would be a leader-level conference but declined to specify who the participants will be. The Obama-era program included economies such as The U.S., the European Union, China, India and Australia.  It was reported this week that the U.S. and European Union had agreed to cut their emissions by 30 percent and that this could be announced in line with the forum.  The senior official described the methane push as a “collective global goal” in a call with reporters.  The official also said that the leaders’ meeting will not be livestreamed and that...
    LUCASVILLE – The Ohio State Highway Patrol announced today that troopers will operate an OVI checkpoint to deter and intercept impaired drivers this week.

If you plan to consume alcohol, designate a driver or make other travel arrangements before you drink. Don’t let another life be lost for the senseless and selfish act of getting behind the wheel impaired. Operational support for the sobriety checkpoint will be provided by local law enforcement agencies.
    A monorail train displaying Google signage moves past a billboard advertising Apple iPhone security during the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S., on Monday, Jan. 7, 2019.Bloomberg | Bloomberg | Getty Images Apple announced a system this week that will enable it to flag images of child exploitation uploaded to iCloud storage in the U.S. and report it to authorities. The move was hailed by child protection advocates. John Clark, the CEO of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, a nonprofit created through a congressional mandate, called it a "game changer" in a statement. But the new system, which is in testing in the U.S. now, was also vociferously opposed by privacy advocates who warned it represents a slippery slope and could be tweaked and further exploited to censor other kinds of content on people's devices. Apple isn't unique in its efforts to rid its cloud storage of illegal images of child pornography. Some other cloud services already do this. Google has used hashing technology since 2008 to identify illegal images on its services....
    The pandemic has been stressful on many and one company is hoping to curb burnout by giving its employees this entire week off. The more than 700 people who work at dating app Bumble will be offline this week.  The company originally announced the free vacation week in April, retweeting an opinion piece by Dodai Stewart, deputy editor of narrative projects at the New York Times, who made the case for a national one-week vacation.

    Editorial: Gaming / Facebook / Twitter / YouTube / Instagram / News / Discord / Forums Regulatory bodies in the United States and Europe have already approved Microsoft’s acquisition of Zenimax Media, which means that the deal can now be officially finalized. This is why before the end of the week, Microsoft will have a presentation related to Bethesda, according to sources. Jeff Grubb published an article on VentureBeat in which he assured that on Thursday, March 11, there will be a video presentation by Xbox. In it they will clarify many of the doubts that have arisen since it was announced that Bethesda will be part of the Xbox family. It is very important that you avoid getting excited and that you keep your hype low. We say so as Grubb sources say it is highly unlikely that Microsoft will give details on upcoming Bethesda releases. So do not expect news from Starfield, The Elder Scrolls VI, much less the Indiana Jones game that MachineGames prepares. Find out: Check out the best gaming content that Solar Power brings you...

    AEW Dynamite regular, for being one of the main stars of Tony Khan’s company, When Jon Moxley’s involvement in AEW Dark was announced last May, a server believed that such presence was surely due to an upcoming remodeling of this show, in order to place it as the second television program of the Elite.

    Just as a spike in coronavirus sweeps across the nation, so too, the United States Capitol. Five House members and one Senator have announced they’ve contracted Covid-19 this week:  Senate Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa Grassley, age 87, announced Tuesday he’d tested positive and would be quarantining at home but that he was “feeling good.” As president pro tempore of the Senate, Grassley presided over votes and attended leadership meetings one day earlier.  Elected to his seat 30 years ago, Grassley’s diagnosis marked the second time he has ever missed votes. The first time was in 1993 to survey flood damage in Iowa, and before Tuesday, he held the record for the longest streak without missing a vote.  FEINSTEIN SPOTTED WALKING AROUND CAPITOL WITHOUT MASK  House  Rep.

    Changes to the restrictions on New York’s coronavirus clusters could be announced later this week as the surge in cases continues to recede, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Sunday. “We’re going to watch the micro-cluster data,” Cuomo told reporters in his Midtown Manhattan office. “We can adjust what is in that cluster. We can make it a little bigger. We can make it a little smaller. We can relax some regulations. We can increase regulations. We’ll do that all based on the data.” Cuomo said that any such alterations would be announced Wednesday, just over two weeks after he announced a color-coded system of restrictions — including closures of schools and non-essential businesses — to tamp down burgeoning outbreaks in Brooklyn and Queens, as well as pockets upstate. The latest data from those zones shows that that effort appears to be working. In the week of Sept. 27 through Oct. 3, the coronavirus positive rate in Brooklyn’s so-called “red zone” was 6.69 percent. By Saturday, that figure had dropped to 4.92 percent. Queens — which has two distinct outbreak zones...

The awards will subsequently be presented online in the fall.  “The Girl from the North Country” and “West Side Story,” which both had their opening nights right before Broadway shut down, will not be eligible for nominations, apparently because an insufficient number of Tony nominators and voters got to see them in time.  Multiple postponements follow shutdown extension Following last week’s confirmation that Broadway will remain shut down until at least the end of May, the producers of the Michael Jackson bio musical “MJ” and the revival of “The Music Man” starring Hugh Jackman announced that those shows will not begin performances until at least next fall.

    Surprise! Visit Denver just announced a surprise, first-ever fall Denver Restaurant Week -- but then, this year has been full of surprises, all brought on by the unpleasant surprise of the coronavirus pandemic. When it was introduced sixteen years ago, Denver Restaurant Week was designed to help eateries through a typically slow period in dining: late February and early March. Now, of course, restaurants are anticipating business getting cold, very cold, as winter descends and those impromptu patios that have expanded seating for the last several months begin to look a lot less attractive.Related Stories Denver Extends Outdoor Dining Program Through October 2021 Beer Calendar: Get Out and Vote — for IPAs COVID-19 in Colorado Timeline: The First Six Months The fall Denver Restaurant Week, set for November 13 through November 22, is designed to heat up the dining scene with creative menus, offered both in-house and to-go. “For the past sixteen years, we have been able to applaud the phenomenal growth of Denver’s culinary community with Denver Restaurant Week,” says Richard Scharf, president and CEO of Visit Denver,...

    DENVER (CBS4) – Most city and county offices in Denver will be closed on Friday for a previously announced furlough day. Denver Health and Denver International Airport will remain open. The furlough days were announced in May to help a financial deficit caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Mayor Michael Hancock said city employees must take furlough days, but that did not include the mayor, himself, city council or the judges. (credit: CBS) However, Denver County Courty judges said, in June, they are voluntarily taking eight furlough days. The mayor, a majority of city council and the judges plan to work through the days, but not be paid. Denver faces $226 million budget shortfall according to the memo. The furlough days will reportedly save the city $16 million.
    (CNN)Michigan officials are expected to announce a major settlement in the Flint water crisis as early as this week, according to multiple reports, including from The New York Times and news outlets in the state. The settlement of civil litigation stemming from Flint's water lead contamination could reach as high as $600 million, The Times reported, quoting sources with knowledge of the matter. Other details will still have to be worked out, due to the large number of cases and defendants, the Detroit Free Press reported. The Michigan attorney general's office wouldn't confirm or deny this week to CNN the reports of a settlement, saying it and the governor's office have been involved in an "ongoing collaborative mediation effort" in the cases for more than a year.

    Samsung’s next midrange phone to get 5G connectivity is the Galaxy A51. Originally launched back in April, the A51 costs $400 normally and sits comfortably in the zone occupied by the now-discounted Pixel 3A and newly announced Pixel 4A (of which there is also a 5G version coming). But the new 5G version of the A51 will go for $500 and work on T-Mobile and Verizon’s 5G networks, Samsung says. Samsung originally announced that its Galaxy A-series lineup would get 5G back in April, and the A51 is the second device after the A71, which costs $600, to get the faster network treatment. Sporting slightly less impressive specs compared with the A71, the A51 has a 6.5-inch FHD+ OLED Infinity-O display with a hole-punch camera in the screen, a totally fine quad-camera system on the back, 128GB of onboard storage, 4GB of RAM, and a 4,000mAh battery. It has an understandably midrange processor, the octa-core Exynos 9611, but is otherwise a very decent midrange device with an impressive screen (and also a headphone jack). Samsung says the A51...
    A White House economist who just announced this week that he will be leaving his post said he tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this month. Tomas Philipson, who said this week he will resign as acting chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, confirmed in an email to The Wall Street Journal that he experienced a “very mild case of one day of fever” and that the White House had a “very capable medical team that managed my case exceptionally well during the infection.” He added that his health is now back to normal, but did not clarify when he was diagnosed or whether he had returned to work prior to his announcement this week.  The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment inquiring if it was aware of any person with whom Philipson had been in close contact.  A White House official told The Journal that Trump and Philipson spent little time together, though the two were seen standing close to each other on June 5 at an event in the Rose...

    THE £300million deal to buy Newcastle is reportedly edging closer with a potential Premier League announcement this week. League bosses have been investigating the Saudi Arabian-led takeover for over two months after Mike Ashley agreed to end his 13-year spell in charge. 3 Mohammad Bin Salman could soon be allowed to buy Newcastle United A number of issues have dogged the deal with the Public Investment Fund backed by Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman criticised for its human rights record. And in an attempt to address the significant concern over Saudi football TV piracy, the country's authorities have vowed to tackle the matter. According to the Mail, those close to the takeover feel that the intervention is designed to help push it over the line. It is also said that UK Government officials are leaning on the Premier League to help increase its ties with the Arabian nation. Therefore, the expectation is that the league will give the green light to the deal when their verdict is delivered, potentially in the coming days. Broadcasters such as beIN Sports and the...
    (CNN)US authorities are pulling back on their threat to block Chinese airlines from flying into the US after the Chinese government changed its own policy. Friday's announcement from the Department of Transportation follows a decision by Chinese civil aviation regulators on Thursday to allow in a limited number of flights from US carriers. What devolved into a tit-for-tat between the two countries began when interest in flying from the US into China dropped off due to the coronavirus pandemic. American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, and United Airlines eventually suspended their service between the two countries. The US government eventually imposed some travel restrictions. When Delta and United sought to resume service, they found Chinese government restrictions would not permit it, according to the Transportation Department. Chinese carriers, however, conducted limited service between the two countries. So on Wednesday, the Transportation Department determined the Chinese government was violating an international travel agreement between the two countries, and said it would soon restrict Chinese flights into the US.Read MoreChinese officials responded on Thursday by easing their restrictions in a way that will...
