    SAN FRANCISCO -- More than two years into the pandemic, scientists discovered a key aspect that could decipher why some people are more prone to getting severely ill from COVID than others."There are people walking around with vulnerabilities to COVID and they don't even know it," said Dr. Joe DeRisi, President of the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub in San Francisco.Researchers at the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub tested close to 4,000 San Franciscans and noticed that even though many did not have pre-existing health conditions their bodies were highly vulnerable.RELATED: US in 'a different moment' but COVID-19 pandemic not over, Dr. Fauci says"We were able to replicate and show that around .3 percent of the population actually have this autoantibody," said Dr. DeRisi. "However, if you look at the severe COVID patients or critical COVID patients in the hospital it's as much as 20 percent."They processed thousands of blood tests and discovered that a subset of the population has autoantibodies that compromise their ability to fight the virus."What is fascinating about these discoveries is that these autoantibodies, these antibodies against yourself uniquely attack...

    (CNN)Nearly half of House Republicans still won't say publicly​ whether they are vaccinated against Covid-19, even as new cases rise nationwide. Some of the 97 Republicans who aren't sharing their vaccination status told CNN they don't have a responsibility to model behavior to their constituents. "I don't think it's anybody's damn business whether I'm vaccinated or not," Republican Rep. Chip Roy of Texas told CNN. "This is ridiculous, what we're doing. The American people are fully capable of making an educated decision about whether they want to get the vaccine or not."Over the past few months, CNN has sent multiple inquiries to members of Congress and reviewed public statements but is unable to confirm the vaccination status of almost half the Republican conference.Still a few of them offered some explanations during hallway interviews with CNN this week.

Matt Gaetz of Florida told CNN "that's very nosy of you," when CNN started asking about his vaccination status, but the congressman cut off the question before it got to whether or not he was vaccinated.

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Jennifer Lopez's rendition of "This Land is Your Land" was hailed by many as a stunning performance. But for some tribal members in Southern California, the song hit the wrong notes for being a part of the inaugural celebration.Benny Wayne Sully, who is Sicangu Lakota Oyate, the song diminishes the history of Native Americans forced off their ancestral lands."That song just adds to the erasure...'This land was made for you and me.'

    Tallapoosa, Georgia (CNN)Sixty miles west of Atlanta, Haralson County sits a world away from Georgia's largest and booming metro area. Here, in the small towns that sit in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, Republican roots run generations deep. In November, the county voted for Donald Trump over Joe Biden, 87% to 13% -- making it one of the most Republican-leaning areas in the state.In the heart of the half-mile downtown of Tallapoosa, diners waited outside two food trucks and chatted about the upcoming January 5 Senate runoffs. But the conversation about next month's election began with November's results. "I honestly think Trump did," said Ralph Horton, when asked who he thinks won the election, despite no legitimate evidence to support that belief. Horton is not alone -- all across Haralson County, his neighbors feed off each other's inaccurate theories."I believe there was a little something shady going on," Cheryl Cantrell said about the election, reciting unsubstantiated claims.Read MoreFor these shell-shocked supporters of Trump, it's impossible to move beyond November with a continued deluge of misinformation from the President and...
    HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — It was a very hot, dry summer in the middle of a pandemic, but are those reasons enough for homeowners’ excessive use of water? Some water bills across Long Island have skyrocketed. Laura and Joseph Nappi, of Huntington, are taken aback at their eye-popping water bill. “When we got the bill, I said, oooh, water went up a lot,” Laura Nappi said. “It’s three or four or five times as high, so there’s something wrong someplace,” Joseph Nappi said. Across Long Island, homeowners are getting their quarterly bills from various water districts. RELATED STORY: Utility Customers Across Area Experiencing Sticker Shock As Bills Skyrocket The Nappis were billed for nearly 30,000 gallons this summer, up from 13,000 a year ago. “No swimming pool, no sprinklers, two people, wash the clothes once or twice a week,” Joseph Nappi said. The South Huntington Water District has seen a tsunami of customer complaints. “With the pandemic, people don’t realize, but they were home and water usage is up. Just think about showers, bathrooms, landscaping,” said Paul Tonna, chairman of...
    FatCamera | E+ | Getty Images You may have recently received a new disclosure form, as mandated by federal securities regulators, from your financial advisor. Or, maybe not. And from where some experts stand, that may not be a bad thing. While a broad swath of the nation's broker-dealers and registered investment advisors — known as RIAs — are required to provide clients with a disclosure document called Form CRS (for "client relationship summary"), there are also many RIAs who don't have to. The reason? They are not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission, but rather with state regulators — who, for the most part, have decided not to follow the lead from their federal counterparts. Form CRS was adopted by the SEC in mid-2019 alongside Regulation Best Interest, which is intended to raise standards of conduct among registered representatives — aka stock brokers — at broker-dealers.

    Just weeks before Election Day, at least 1,400 Virginia voters who had requested absentee ballots received duplicates in the mail. What are the details?According to the Washington Post, at least 1,000 registered voters in Fairfax County received multiple absentee ballots, while voters in Henrico County and the city of Richmond also received duplicate absentee ballots. Maurisa Potts told WRC-TV that she was shocked to find four ballots in her mailbox recently, two for her and two for her husband. "When I got the mail, we got four ballots — two for me, addressed to me, and two addressed to my husband, so for someone who is a first timer doing mail-in I was confused," she said. "With this year, with people are concerned about election fraud and being fair and counting ballots, this is an issue." Jean Brennan, a voter in Leesburg, told WTTG-TV that she received one ballot in the mail and her husband received two. "This is what [Trump's] concerned about and I am too and I wanted to bring it to your attention," Brennan told...
    In late July, Gloria Lopez, a weight checker at a frozen food processing plant in Vernon, noticed that a plexiglass divider was missing between workers on the production line. Two employees were left exposed to the coronavirus. Neither had said anything. “I said to one of them, ‘Do you feel comfortable the way you’re working?’ And she said, ‘No, but what do you want me to do?’” Lopez recalled. Within minutes, Lopez instructed an employee to hit a button to stop production. She told the line leader she belonged to a new safety committee at the plant owned by Overhill Farms, which has authorized the panel’s members to halt production if safety precautions were lacking. About 10 minutes later, the divider was back. “I thought to myself, ‘Yes, we can do something with our committee,’” said Lopez, from Huntington Park. “Yes, we can be safer where we work.” Photographs of people who lost their lives to COVID-19, including Celia Marcos, left, were part of a memorial erected in front of the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration.(Mel Melcon / Los Angeles...
