    Serena Williams has shattered another record, and did so without lifting a finger. A 1999 trading card picturing the young tennis legend sold at auction for $117,000, according to the PWCC Marketplace.

    Microsoft announced on Thursday it has hired a law firm to review how the company has handled sexual harassment allegations against some of its top executives - including founder Bill Gates. The review will be conducted by Washington, DC-based Arent Fox LLP, which the board of directors selected because it has experience in dealing with sexual harassment allegations and has not conducted much work with the company in the past. 'Our culture remains our number one priority and the entire board appreciates the critical importance of a safe and inclusive environment for all Microsoft employees,' Microsoft Chief Executive Satya Nadella said in a statement. 'We're committed not just to reviewing the report but learning from the assessment so we can continue to improve the experiences of our employees,' she continued. 'I embrace this comprehensive review as an opportunity to continue to get better.' The move to hire an independent firm to review the company's investigations comes after activist shareholders demanded greater disclosure of the company's handling of sexual harassment issues. A resolution seeking greater transparency passed in November with support...
    Washington (CNN)Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas said at a Senate committee meeting on Wednesday that the next day was the "anniversary of a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol."Cruz's description of the January 6, 2021, assault as a "terrorist attack" was promptly criticized by some others on the right -- including Fox host Tucker Carlson, who is an influential figure in Republican politics. So in a remarkable moment on Thursday, Cruz went on Carlson's show to try to depict his Wednesday words as a careless slip.Cruz claimed, "The way I phrased things yesterday -- it was sloppy and it was frankly dumb." Carlson immediately interjected to say, "I don't buy that," noting that Cruz is known to be a precise speaker. Cruz insisted he had used "sloppy phrasing," saying he meant to accuse of terrorism only people who committed violence against police officers. Cruz continued, "It was a mistake to say that yesterday." But Carlson reiterated that he didn't believe that Cruz made an inadvertent error.Read MoreNobody should.Cruz's use of "terrorist attack" was not some sort of one-time accident....
    Fewer Covid patients in hospital are relying on ventilation compared to previous peaks during the pandemic, it has been revealed.   In a further sign that the Omicron variant is less severe than other strains of coronavirus, figures from London hospitals suggest a lower rate of mechanical intervention is needed among recent patients. Yesterday, there were 3,744 patients in London's hospitals with Covid compared to around 1,000 at the end of November. Yet despite this, the number of mechanical ventilation beds in use increased from 175 to just 230. This equates to around six per cent of people in hospital who require help to breathe - a significant drop compared to around 20 per cent during the summer.   While Covid admission in London hospitals have more than tripled since November, numbers in ventilation beds rose from just 175 to 230 London has fast become the UK’s Omicron hotspot, with one in 20 people testing positive in the week leading up to Christmas. Paul Hunter, professor of medicine at the University of East Anglia, said the reduced need for ventilation is a...
    (CNN)The US kicked off 2022 amid a massive Covid-19 case spike -- driven by the highly contagious Omicron variant -- that some experts warn will be different than any other time in the pandemic. "What we have to understand is that our health system is at a very different place than we were in previous surges," professor of emergency medicine Dr. Esther Choo told CNN on Saturday. "We have extremely high numbers of just lost healthcare workers, we've lost at least 20% of our healthcare workforce, probably more."The Covid-19 case surge is altering daily life across the US. Things will likely get worse, experts warn"This strain is so infectious," Choo added, "that I think all of us know many, many colleagues who are currently infected or have symptoms and are under quarantine."The high number of healthcare staff out with the virus will also have an impact on Americans' doctors appointments and could make for dangerous circumstances when people are hospitalized with Covid-19, Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of Baylor University's National School of Tropical Medicine, said Friday. "That's a different type...
    As the Omicron wave surges, governments worldwide face critical decisions. By all appearances, Omicron appears to be highly more contagious than previous variants, which has led to increasing panic among certain segments of the population. On the other hand, it also appears, based on preliminary data, that Omicron appears to be much less dangerous than previous variants, particularly the Delta variant which it is in the process of displacing.
    Christmas shoppers in London on Dec. 23, 2021.Hasan Esen | Anadolu Agency | Getty Images LONDON — Horrific scenes seen in previous Covid-19 waves are "now history," according to John Bell, a regius professor of medicine at the University of Oxford and the U.K. government's life sciences advisor. Speaking to BBC Radio 4 on Tuesday, Bell analyzed data from the U.K., where cases are breaking records and hospital admissions are at their highest since March. He said that the number of people in ICUs who are vaccinated remains "very, very low." "The incidence of severe disease and death from this disease [Covid] has basically not changed since we all got vaccinated and that's really important to remember," he told the BBC. "The horrific scenes that we saw a year ago — intensive care units being full, lots of people dying prematurely — that is now history in my view and I think we should be reassured that that's likely to continue." Discussing the new omicron variant, he added: "The disease does appear to be less severe, and many people spend a relatively...

    Donald Trump on Tuesday evening said he was 'very appreciative' of Joe Biden paying tribute to his administration's efforts to create the vaccine - adding that he was 'surprised to hear it'. Biden several hours previously had commended his predecessor for leading efforts to make the U.S. one of the first countries in the world to get a vaccine against COVID-19. 'Thanks to the prior administration and our scientific community, America is one of the first countries to get the vaccine,' said Biden.  'Thanks to my administration, the hard work of Americans, we let, our roll-out, made America among the world leaders in getting shots in arms.'  Trump, who has frequently complained about not getting enough credit for his decisions in pushing the vaccine manufacture, said he was pleasantly surprised by the president's words.

    Some of Britain’s favourite biscuit brands are set to jump in price by up to 5 per cent as inflation soars in the UK. Some of the UK’s favourite brands of biscuits, such as Hobnobs, Jaffa Cakes, Penguin Bars and Chocolate Digestives, are set to see price rises of up to 5 per cent, according to manufacturer McVitie’s. The price hike comes as Brits — and nations across Europe — face the worst inflation in over a decade, with November seeing a 5.1 per cent rise over the previous 12 months, according to the National Office of Statistics. According to a report by The Mail, McVitie’s owner Pladis is blaming the sudden hike on a significant rise in costs faced by the manufacturer, along with a host of other factors. “Omicron disruption, absenteeism, and the rising cost of business going forward present a big challenge for us,” Pladis Managing Director David Murray said. “At the end of the day, like in many other categories, it will flow through to higher prices.

    The Omicron variant can still cause infection in people that have both received the COVID-19 vaccine and have have previously had the virus, one expert says. Dr Angelique Coetzee, chairperson of the South African Medical Association, told CNN on Wednesday that she has seen multiple people with both types of immunity test positive for the virus. She did note that the vaccine is effective at preventing severe Covid infection, with more than 90 percent of ICU patients in the medical center she works at, in Pretoria, being unvaccinated. The variant, discovered last month by officials in the nation, is believed to be the most infectious yet with the ability to bypass vaccine immunity due to its many mutations. Officials at Pfizer reported Wednesday that their vaccine had diminished capabilities of preventing infection from Omicron, though the additional booster shot could  South Africa has also suffered a massive spike in Covid cases since the variant was first discovered, though officials have continued to report that infections caused by Omicron are generally less sever than those of other variants.  Dr Angelique Coetzee (right), chairperson...
    There are only so many times you can bring up the past. That’s the case for Georgia this week, as they prepare for Alabama and the SEC Championship on Saturday. We can go back to the previous years and try to figure out whether past games will have any bearing on future performances, but make no mistake, these Dawgs are looking to finish what they’ve started. We all remember the 2018 national championship game when Georgia had backed up Alabama to a second and forever, only to see Tua Tagovailoa hit a bomb down the left sideline for a touchdown, and just like that, the Dawgs’ season was finished.

    If you’ve been following the SEC this season, you probably found yourself looking ahead and wondering what a conference title game between Alabama and Georgia would look like. We’ve all heard the talk. The Dawgs dominated each opponent this season, while the Tide found a way to get to Atlanta after a few close calls. But it’s always been about this game and whether Georgia could finally finish this thing off. Georgia opened as a 6.5 point favorite, according to FanDuel.  CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Georgia fans celebrate their 41-17 win over Tennessee in an NCAA college football game Saturday, Nov. 13, 2021, in Knoxville, Tenn.

Let’s face it, Georgia hasn’t had to play a four-quarter game in a while. So it could’ve been easy for them to look ahead. But they didn’t. Georgia players and coaches have been getting the question about the collision course in Atlanta for the past month now, but most...

    A white dwarf star has broken records after scientists discovered that it completes a full rotation once every 25 seconds. The star, called LAMOST J024048.51+195226.9 (or J0240+1952 for short), was analysed by researchers from the University of Warwick, who say it is the fastest spinning confirmed white dwarf. The previous record holder was a white dwarf that completed a rotation in just over 29 seconds, making J0240+1952 20 per cent faster. Dr Ingrid Pelisoli, who led the study, said: 'J0240+1952 will have completed several rotations in the short amount of time that people take to read about it, it is really incredible.'

    The U.S.'s national drug problem has reached a harrowing mark. From April 2020 to April 2021, the first full year of the COVID-19 pandemic, a total of 100,306 Americans died of drug overdoses, according to a new report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It is the first time that more than 100,000 drug overdose deaths were reported during a 12-month period.  This is also a 28.5 percent increase from the 78,056 overdose deaths recorded from April 2019 to April 2020. Drug abuse, and specifically opioid abuse, has long been an issue in the U.S., and the pandemic proved to be a setback in the nation's battle against overdoses. In a statement on Tuesday, President Joe Biden called the figured a 'tragic milestone.'  'As we continue to make strides to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot overlook this epidemic of loss, which has touched families and communities across the country,' the statement read. 'As we grieve those we've lost and honor their memories, my Administration is committed to doing everything in our power to address addiction...
    COVID-19 cases among children are continuing to rise as the U.S. heads towards the holiday season, a new report finds.  A total of 122,229 kids tested positive for the virus during the week that ended on November 11, according to the American Academy and Pediatrics (AAP).  That figure is a 13 percent increase from the 107,000 cases recorded the previous week and a 22 percent increase over the past two weeks. Pediatric Covid cases have now increased for the second consecutive week after nearly two months of declines.  America as a whole is experiencing a slight increase in COVID-19 infections ahead of the holiday season, and some experts believe cold weather could be fueling the increase.

    "In this screenshot from the RNC's livestream of the 2020 Republican National Convention, U.S. President Donald Trump hosts a naturalization ceremony for new citizens in a pre-recorded video broadcasted during the virtual convention on August 25, 2020." Remember back in August 2020 when former unlawfully appointed acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf presided over a political stunt that used immigrants as human props as part of an effort to reelect the previous president? A number of the immigrants who were sworn in as U.S. citizens in that White House naturalization ceremony would later say they weren’t informed prior to the stunt that it would be broadcast as part of the Republican National Convention.

    COVID-19 antibodies in breast milk fade more quickly following vaccination than after infection, a new study suggests. Researchers from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in New York found that antibodies produced breastfeeding mothers whether they've previously been ill or have gotten their shots are both capable of neutralizing the virus. However, lactating women who are fully vaccinated against Covid see antibodies in their milk begin to decline about 90 days after the second dose. But new mothers who generate antibodies from previous infection see their levels either remain steady or increase three months after recovery. The team says the findings provide evidence for why, whether previously infected or vaccinated, women should breastfeed their children to pass on protection. Researchers from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry in New York looked at breast milk samples from women who have been previously infected with COVID-19 or have been vaccinated (file image) Women with prior infection had higher levels of first line of defense antibodies while vaccinated women had higher levels of antibodies that remember the virus (left)....

The man — Lennin Elizalde, 28 — had been discovered the previous morning in the Valley Springs house when the new residents were moving in, said the agency’s account. He refused to leave until they called 911 — and then he threatened them and said he would return. A sheriff’s deputy called by the owners found Elizalde in the area before noon Saturday and arrested him on suspicion of illegal entry into a dwelling, vandalism and possession of methamphetamine, all misdemeanors. While he was being taken to jail, Elizalde told the deputy that the home belonged to his family and that he intended to return there. Because of that threat, the deputy requested a bail increase. The judge denied the request, and Elizalde was released from jail at 6:20 p.m. Saturday. Around 12:25 a.m. Sunday, a 911 call was made by a person in the Valley Springs home. Deputies arrived to find two men in...

    "A section of the southern border wall is shown on September 23, 2021 in Del Rio, Texas." The Biden administration announced on Friday that its set to cancel all remaining border wall contracts in South Texas. CNN reports the agreements covered an estimated 44 miles of barrier, and were signed as part of the previous president’s U.S. taxpayer-funded, unlawful, destructive, racist, crumbling, and overall just very stupid vanity project at the southern border. “Consistent with the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) border barrier plan, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), in coordination with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), intends to cancel the remaining border barrier contracts located within U.S. Border Patrol’s (USBP) Laredo Sector and all border barrier contracts located in the Rio Grande Valley Sector,” the Biden administration said.

The news came to the joy of local organizers like the #NoBorderWall Coalition, which called the fight against the federal government and...
    Baltimore Ravens Kicker Justin Tucker broke the NFL record for longest Field Goal ever made in the most dramatic fashion possible Sunday. As time expired and down one point against the host Detroit Lions, the Ravens lined up on SIXTY-SIX yards away from the uprights. As the clock ticked to zero, Tucker’s kick hit the CROSSBAR of the uprights and bounced up and over the net for the Ravens win and Lion’s heartbreaking loss. Tucker’s 66 yarder breaks the previous record held by Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater who kicked a 64-yard field goal at Denver’s Mile High Stadium, where many believe the high altitude helps the ball carry further. The previous record was a 63 yarder held by New Orleans Saints kicker Tom Dempsey. Watch above via CBS Sports. Have a tip we should know? tips@mediaite.com

    GENEVA — The U.N. human rights chief says her office has received credible allegations of reprisal killings by the Taliban of former Afghan security forces, as well as instances in which officials in the previous government and their relatives were arbitrarily detained and later turned up dead. Michelle Bachelet, speaking on Monday to the Human Rights Council, warned of a “new and perilous phase” for Afghanistan as she criticized the Taliban for a disconnect between their words and actions. She cited “multiple” allegations of Taliban house-to-house searches looking for officials from the previous government and “people who cooperated with U.S. security forces and companies.” Such searches took place in at least a half-dozen cities, Bachelet said. U.N. staffers have also reported increasing attacks and threats, she added, without providing specifics. “My office has received credible allegations of reprisal killings of a number of former ANSF (Afghan National Security Forces) personnel, and reports of officials, who worked for previous administrations and their family members being arbitrarily detained,” she said. “In some cases, the officials were released, and in others, they...
    When managers at National Steel installed hidden cameras at an Illinois mill to guard against theft, they ended up being the ones on the wrong side of the law. The United Steelworkers (USW) reported the illicit surveillance to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), and in a 2001 order that remains a major check on corporate abuses, the agency ordered an end to the secret spying. To USW Local 1899 President Dan Simmons, that still-important case is a constant reminder of how much Americans need the NLRB to ensure justice in the workplace. So he's pleased that after veering wildly off course during the previous administration, the agency under Joe Biden is getting back to its vital mission of enforcing labor rights. On his first day as president in January, Biden fired the board's general counsel, Peter Robb, a corporate pawn who used his powerful position to turn the agency against the very people it was created to help. With the support of the Democratic-controlled Senate, Biden replaced Robb with Jennifer Abruzzo, a respected labor lawyer who's expected to bring...
    We're only four days away from Apple's next product launch, but iPhone rumors are still running wild in advance of the September 14 'California streaming' event. The latest states Apple will switch up color options on the Phone 13 lineup, offering the standard and mini editions in pink, replacing the green available for iPhone 12. The iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 will also reportedly be available in black, blue, purple, white and PRODUCT (RED), MacRumors reported. The Pro and Pro Max will reportedly deliver in silver and gold, as well as black and bronze, replacing graphite and pacific blue from the iPhone 12. Now for the bad news: The ongoing chip shortage could hike up the price for iPhone 13, which TrendForce previously reported would maintain the same pricing as the 12: from $699 for a 64GB Pro Mini up to $1,999 for a tricked out Pro Max. But the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), which controls over half the global foundry market and is Apple's largest chip supplier, has announced its 'biggest price hike in a decade,' according...
    The “Looking Glass” ponders economic and real estate trends through two distinct lenses: the optimist’s “glass half-full” and the pessimist’s “glass half-empty.” Buzz: A migration out of urban California has created the nation’s biggest rent gains in Golden State counties far from the coast as bargain-seekers move inland. Debate: When my trusty spreadsheet peeked inside ApartmentList data on rents for the 50 most populous U.S. counties, it found a curious split among the 10 California counties on the list. San Bernardino, Fresno and Riverside topped the rent-hike rankings with Sacramento at No. 9. Meanwhile in the six counties closer to the coast — Alameda, Contra Costa, Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego and Santa Clara — rents have, at best, moved sideways. What’s behind this divide? Remember, the pandemic’s business limitations cost many tenants their jobs. Such economic pressures forced certain households to move to cheaper and less dense communities away from the coast. Others sought new living arrangements such as doubling up with family or roommates. Some apartment dwellers with solid finances became homeowners, taking advantage of historically low...

Government experts said today England's R rate - which indicates whether the pandemic is growing or not - is estimated to be 1 to 1.1. 2Covid cases are on the rise once more. Pictured: Passengers arrive at King’s Cross Station in central London, August 20Credit: LNP It's up from 0.9 to 1.2 last week - the first increase in six weeks - and the first time it's at least 1 or above in four weeks.
