    More than three in four American children and teenagers have caught COVID-19 since the pandemic began — the most out of any age group, a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed today. In the major study, the agency looked at the prevalence of Covid-fighting antibodies in more than 200,000 people across the U.S. over the last two years — but despite the heavy disease burden among minors deaths remain low. Official figures show 1,001 Americans under 18 years old have had the virus mentioned on their death certificate, accounting for just 0.01 per cent of the almost a million deaths reported since the pandemic began. Dr Monica Ghandi, a top infectious disease expert from the University of California, San Francisco, said the data was yet more evidence booster shots are 'not needed' for youngsters. They are currently being offered to everyone aged 12 years and older. Among people above 65 years old — who are most at risk from the virus — barely a third had been infected with the virus over the last two years....
    My Twitter feed has been full of arguments today about police shootings of suspects. I’m not sure why, but it’s as good a reason as any to go ahead and show how it’s changed over the past few years. Short answer: it hasn’t: It’s true that police shootings of unarmed suspects have declined considerably in the years since Ferguson. And that’s good! However, the overall number of shootings has been flat, and the huge overrepresentation of Black suspects killed has been flat too. That’s a lot less good.
    I don’t have any special reason for posting this except that Congress is getting ready to vote on an override of Donald Trump’s veto of the annual defense spending bill. So here is defense spending over the past 50 years: It goes up and down during wars and peacetime, but ever since we came down from the Vietnam peak it’s remarkable how steady it’s been. The American populace seems willing to spend about $2000 each for defense, and that changes only modestly and temporarily over time.
    There are 60 species of flightless birds walking the Earth today, but a new study reveals there would be at least four times the amount if not for human influences. These findings were uncovered by a team at the University College of London who compiled a list of every bird species known to have gone extinct since humans appeared on the planet. A total of 581 bird species have vanished since the Late Pleistocene, 126,000 years ago, and 166 of them lacked the ability to fly. The study determined that flightless birds thrived on most island groups around the world, with particular hotspots in New Zealand and Hawaii.  Scroll down for video  There 60 species of flightless birds walking the Earth today, but a new study reveals there would be at least four times the amount if not for human influences.

    Changes to the Antarctic ice sheet at the bottom of the southern hemisphere have been triggered by sea level changes in the northern hemisphere over the past 40,000 years, a new study discovered.  Researchers from McGill University found that ice sheets at opposite ends of the Earth can influence one another by tweaking sea levels in surrounding waters. Scientists have struggled to explain how ice sheets changed during the last ice age - the Last Glacial Period - running from 115,000 years ago to 11,700 years ago.   New models found that as the climate cooled in the northern hemisphere and more water turned to ice, sea levels in Antarctica dropped, making its ice sheet grow.  Likewise, as temperatures rose again, the ice sheets in the Northern Hemisphere retreated, causing levels to rise around Antarctica and its ice sheet to retreat. Polar ice sheets evolve on various different time scales and are in constant flux, with the ice growing and retreating depending on the climate and the surrounding water levels Senior author Professor Natalya Gomez at the McGill University said...
    Although many venues have been shuttered for the past six months over COVID-19, B-Side Live is opening this Friday, October 9, in the former Black Buzzard space in the basement of Oskar Blues at 1624 Market Street. Hayley Steiner, who paired bands with visual artists as founder of the RiNo Showcase, will act as the venue's operator and booking manager. She says her vision for the spot is simple: "Human beings need live music, and even in a time like this, there has to be a safe place for it." In keeping with Colorado state guidelines and local public-health orders, capacity will be limited to fifty people inside the venue at a time. The concerts will be socially distanced, and guests will be required to sit.

Housing in the US has not been able to keep up with buyer demand over the past decade © Provided by Business Insider Construction workers build a new home on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, in Houston. David J. Phillip/AP New US housing construction has shown strength amid the pandemic. July housing starts saw a third-straight month of gains and was the largest jump since 2016 before starts declined in August because of a drop in construction for multi-family units. However, starts for single-family units are still low relative to years before the Great Recession and the housing bubble. Business Insider decided to take a closer look at whether the US has been building enough homes to keep up with demand. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

    The South Pole has been warming at more than three times the global average over the past 30 years, a new study has found. That could have huge implications for the melting of Antarctic ice sheets, marine life in the region and the rising of global sea levels.The study, published in the journal Nature Climate Change on Monday, sheds new light on the most remote region on Earth. While scientists have known for years that the outer regions of Antarctica is warming, they previously thought the South Pole, being located deep in its interior, was isolated from rising global temperatures."This highlights that global warming is global and it's making its way to these remote places," said Kyle Clem, postdoctoral research fellow in Climate Science at the University of Wellington, and lead author of the study.Clem and his team analyzed weather station data at the South Pole, as well as climate models to examine the warming in the Antarctic interior. They found that between 1989 and 2018, the South Pole had warmed by about 1.8 degrees Celsius over the past 30...

    The Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) announced this weeek they have processed over 2.7 million regular UI initial claims in the past 14 weeks, more than the last seven years combined.  Of the processed claims, over one million were identified as valid claims with enough wages to establish a claim and 91% have been issued a payment. Based on seasonally adjusted percentages, Georgia ranked 1st in the South Region and 15th nationally for lowest unemployment rate of 9.7 percent for May 2020.  Further, Georgia ranked 6th (out of eight) in the South Region and 30th (out of 53 – including Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and Washington D.C.) in the nation with percentage change in employment of 1.9 percent from April to May.  Georgia ranked 3rd in the South Region and 12th in the nation, with a seasonally adjusted net job gain of 79,600 from April to May. The GDOL announced that jobs numbers for all of Georgia’s Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and regions.  The unemployment rate was down and likewise employment numbers were higher in all MSAs and all regions. “These positive indicators are promising for...
    The Holy Land grocery, butcher shop and deli has been kicked out of the Midtown Global Market in Minneapolis after past racist social media posts by the CEO’s daughter, an employee, surfaced. The Lake Street market posted on Facebook Thursday afternoon that it was “deeply offended and saddened” by the posts made “a number of years ago” by a family member of the owners of Holy Land. “These words in no way reflect the beliefs and ideas of the staff, management, and business owners of Midtown Global Market,” the post said. “We are home to 45 businesses representing 16 cultures, ethnicities, and countries of origin. We do not tolerate discrimination of any kind.” Two hours later, the market, which is housed in the former Sears building at Chicago Avenue, posted that it was “exercising its rights as landlord” by immediately closing the deli and terminating its lease. Holy Land had commented about the social media posts Thursday morning on it Facebook page, saying they had found out a “team member” had “posted racial slurs” onto social media before beginning...
