    (CNN)Amid this winter surge of Covid-19 cases across the country, CNN is reporting on an important pivot at the White House and among some public health officials -- how to live with the virus instead of how to beat it.That shift is occurring as many Americans struggle to find easy and affordable testing and as pictures of hours-long testing lines emerged over the weekend.Testing is ever more important. The Omicron variant may infect vaccinated people more easily than previous versions of the coronavirus, although the risk of severe illness seems to be low in vaccinated people. The omicron variant causes over 73% of new coronavirus cases in the US, according to estimates posted Monday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That's a huge -- and fast -- increase. The week ending December 11, omicron was estimated at 12.6% of circulating virus, versus 87% for the Delta variant. Before that it was 3%. Live with it. Get vaccinated. If the new message is that Americans must learn to live alongside Covid-19, it is a "potentially stark shift in...
    HADDONFIELD, N.J. (AP) — There it was, the finish line, beckoning me to cross it. There I was, running at top speed, eager to be over it. I’d been on my best behavior since March 2020, when the pandemic reached the United States. Twenty months of not setting foot inside a restaurant or getting on a plane or seeing my 88-year-old father-in-law on the other side of the country. Twenty months of eyeing people who wore their masks dangling off one ear (or not at all), or packing together for birthday parties, baby showers and weddings. I’d lost co-workers to COVID-19. Earlier this year, I lost a beloved aunt. We spent last Thanksgiving at home, just the four of us. Same for Christmas. My husband and I juggled our full-time jobs while trying to get our two sons through remote learning, me editing stories while cursing under my breath as I coached my 10-year-old through long division. When I became eligible for the vaccine, I desperately searched for an appointment and drove an hour to Atlantic City to get the...
    Culture war on education rages in Virginia governors race Pelosi considering adding former GOP congressman as adviser to Jan. 6 committee By Paresh Dave © Reuters/JORGE SILVA Softball - Women - Opening Round - United States v Canada FUKUSHIMA, Japan (Reuters) - U.S. softball pitcher Monica Abbott had one regret on a day she threw a dazzling shutout to beat Canada: She had no idea she was supposed to be on the lookout for a bear. Load Error Locked in for her Tokyo Olympics start on Thursday, Abbott must have missed headlines late Wednesday in which local authorities said security near Fukushima's softball venue saw a brown bear two consecutive mornings this week. "I'm kind of disappointed I didn't get to see it," Abbott, who has played in Japan's national league since 2009, told a news conference after her start. Teammates and coach Ken Eriksen treated the bus ride to the stadium like a tour back home of Yellowstone National Park. "We were actually looking to see if we could find another bear," said Eriksen, who comes from...
    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — Texas’ top health official, Dr. John Hellerstedt, sent a message to health care providers Tuesday labelled “urgent”. It continued, “All providers that have received COVID-19 vaccine must immediately vaccinate healthcare workers, Texans over the age of 65, and people with medical conditions that put them at greater risk… No vaccine should be kept in reserve.” Concern is growing that much of the vaccine could be sitting unused. The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) website shows only one-quarter of the doses received have been administered. And, yet for many who qualify, the vaccine hasn’t been easy to find. “I have not been able to find anyone who actually has the vaccine,” said Michael Calder, a resident in Allen, who said he qualifies under the state’s criteria. The DSHS website recommends anyone who qualifies for vaccination, a group which includes more than 8 million Texans, look up providers who’ve received the vaccine on an interactive map and call them. Calder did just that, phoning three locations near his home. Two said they’d run out of doses —...
    As California’s summer surge of coronavirus cases fades and more schools transition from online distance learning to in-class instruction, it’s likely some students and teachers will be infected. And there’s no guarantee the public will find out about it. Weeks after classrooms began reopening across the country, there’s been little comprehensive information about how many have had outbreaks — and California is one of a number of states saying they aren’t planning to release such information. Instead, parents are being left to rely on scattered news accounts that give little sense of how prevalent clusters of infections are among students and teachers. “A lack of information for sure,” said Amber Lewis of San Jose, who has a daughter in 6th grade at Willow Glen Middle School and a son in 4th grade at Booksin Elementary. “It’s hard to understand when you hear some of those individual stories. With how many schools that are back live, is it just this one and they had some sort of incident?” It’s been a problem nationally, something researchers, teachers and school officials are trying to...
    From the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis, people have wondered if Denver home costs, which have risen steadily in recent years, would finally come back down to earth amid widespread economic turmoil sparked by the pandemic.  But prices have continued to climb, particularly at the lower end of the scale, in surprising ways. An example: For the first time since 2016, when Westword published the inaugural edition of what have become regular updates about the least expensive properties available in the market, no standalone house (as opposed to a duplex, condo or the like) was available within Denver city limits for under $250,000 on August 3. Not a single one.Related Stories Denver Homes Selling for Under $250K Right Now These Are the Denver Homes You Can Buy for Under $250K Today Denver Has Worst Home Affordability of Any Big County in America Moreover, on that date the Homesnap website, our regular source of information, spotlighted just two houses for under $300,000. That definitely wasn't the case when we looked at prices in May, and in our first installment in this...
    Forget beach bod envy. This summer is all about beach chair envy. “You can’t find a beach chair anywhere,” Brooklyn-based mom Dawn Mark told The Post. She said she scoured the Web for three days before she finally scored one — for $90. “It was really overpriced, but I had no choice,” said the 41-year-old, who wanted to sun herself in her backyard while watching her 5-year-old play. To add insult to injury, she got an e-mail days later that the delivery was pushed back — to Jan. 5. “What am I going to do with a beach chair in January? It’s laughable.” Beach chairs are this summer’s hot seat now that socially distant hangouts — in backyards, on beaches and in parks or even in parking lots — are the only way to play. And prices are getting jacked up due to demand from desperate beachgoers. “Someone offered me $500 for a beach chair,” said Butch Yamali, owner of Malibu Shore Club in Lido Beach, LI. “I don’t even have any to give! People try to take the chairs...
    (CNN)It's getting easier to shop for a new car again now that dealerships across the United States are starting to open up following the coronavirus lockdowns. But don't go shopping with your heart set on anything specific. It's going to be harder to find the exact car, truck or SUV of your dreams. Even though dealer showrooms were closed in many places, customers could still buy cars online and have them delivered to their home during the shutdowns. Many shoppers were attracted to the remarkable 0% financing and long-term auto loans -- a combination that made for low monthly payments -- being offered by auto lenders. And that helped to clean out dealers' lots."I don't think they realized how well [the financing deals were] going to work," said David Siebenaller, general manager at Findlay Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Findlay, Ohio. "And then now that's where we're running into, you know. New car inventories are so short, everywhere."Want to buy a used car? Rental car companies are offering up some good dealsIn an ordinary month, 0% financing deals represent about...
