    SAN MATEO COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) -- A Bay Area-based COVID testing company, plagued with long delays, will no longer be operating at the San Mateo County Event Center, following an ABC7 News I-Team investigation.County officials told the I-Team Virus Geeks will end its operations on Jan. 28 after thousands of residents waited nearly two weeks to get their COVID test results. Another company, Carbon Health, will open in the same space with a drive-through PCR test clinic.RELATED: Nearly 14K COVID tests left 'untouched for a week' in Bay Area lab; customers still wait for resultsThis all started with bio-health technology company Virus Geeks advertising to customers COVID test results would be sent back within 48 hours. But the reality? Thousands of Bay Area residents waited nearly two weeks."They have a right to be mad," said Lee. "I'm terribly sorry."Overwhelmed with heightened testing demands from Omicron, Virus Geeks CEO Frank Lee told us last week his company relied on another Pleasanton-based lab, DiaCarta, to process the overflow. Lee said nearly 14,000 tests were left unprocessed in the company's facility for a...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — There’s new information about the COVID testing company at the center of a federal investigation. Northshore Clinical Labs tested hundreds of thousands of samples leaving many with delayed results and in some cases no results at all. READ MORE: Chicago Weather Alert: Winter Storm Watch On The WayOn Wednesday, CBS 2’s Chris Tye broke the story of Northshore Clinical labs. He has new details on past problems that lead to contracts canceled with a Chicago suburb. In the weeks before Christmas 2020, the city of Berwyn hired Northshore Clinical Labs to run a few drive through testing labs. The city said the company failed to get them results in the agreed upon time. It lead the city to not only leave Northshore and find a new lab service. It changed its vetting process to make sure the Northshore issues never happen again. On the last day of last year, Northshore Clinical labs terminated contracts with all third party collection sites. Those pop-up testing locations that sent their samples to Northshore for results. The lab said they were...

    People can get better immune responses from COVID-19 booster shots if the dose doesn’t match the vaccine received during initial vaccination, according to a lead researcher on the matter from the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine. Only about 40% of Americans who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 have received booster shots, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data indicates. “If your primary series and the boost were the same, you got a good response. But you could increase that response if you mixed the vaccines,” said Dr. Kirsten E. Lyke, professor of medicine at UMSOM, and the co-chair and the principal investigator for the ongoing study. “For instance, if you got a Johnson and Johnson and you followed that with either a Pfizer or Moderna, you could really enhance your immune response,” she said. Lyke also presented data to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s expert vaccine panel in October that was pivotal in recommending adults and teens receive COVID-19 booster shots of their choosing starting in fall 2021. Lyke said the lowest boost of immunity in the ongoing...

    Trump attorney Sidney Powell speaking to the RNC on Nov. 18, 2020 On January 21, Politico published a draft executive order under which Donald Trump authorized a number of chilling actions, beginning with this military seizure of voting machines: “Effective immediately, the Secretary of Defense shall seize, collect, retain, and analyze all machines, equipment, electronically stored information, and material records … “  The draft order, which would have then also called for “federalization of appropriate National Guard support,” would have placed a series of Trump officials in charge of these machines, which would have remained under the supervision of the assistant secretary of defense, with a Trump-appointed “Special Counsel” to bring criminal charges against those deemed to have been involved in election fraud. This unvarnished attempt at employing the military in his coup d'etat—like all the other features of Trump’s attempted destruction of American democracy—has not received one one-thousandth the media attention it deserves. But on particular, there’s been a tendency to overlook the order’s opening paragraph; the one that makes it clear that all of this was based on false claims from...
    TheBlaze reached out to Tantibanchachai requesting a copy of the data cited in the press release. The FDA provided two fact sheets given to health care providers that reported the results of in vitro lab experiments with bamlanivimab-etesevimab and REGEN-COV. Experts confirmed the reports appear to show that in a lab setting, the monoclonal antibody treatments appear to less effective against the Omicron variant. "Regarding the sheets you sent, it appears to report the results of an in vitro lab experiment, which found that when Casirivimab and Imdevimab are used together versus a 'pseudotyped virus-like particle' (I assume the spike protein), they are substantially less likely to neutralize the simulated Omicron particles than they were versus simulated versions of particles from the previous variants," said Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University. Casirivimab and imdevimab are the names of the drugs used in Regeneron's REGEN-COV treatment. "These results suggest that mABs are less likely to work when given to patients with an Omicron infection than they did versus earlier variants, but the sheets do...
    A Republican lawmaker in Arizona is pushing legislation in the state's House of Representatives that would allow the state's Legislature to overturn primary or general election results. The legislation was introduced by state Rep. John Fillmore, a Republican, and it would be a significant overhaul of Arizona's voting procedure. If passed, the majority of early and absentee voting would be eliminated, and Arizonans would be required to vote in their respective home precinct, according to a report. PAIR LEADS POLICE TO DRUG BUST AFTER TRYING TO BAIL OUT FRIEND WITH FAKE MONEY However, the most dramatic change the legislation would bring would be the requirement to convene for a special session following an election to either "accept or reject the election results." Fillmore's effort is the latest in a series of those by Copper State Republicans who have sought to investigate the election of President Joe Biden and establish more stringent election policies. "We should have voting, in my opinion, in-person, one day, on paper, with no electronic means, and hand-counting that day....
    An arch conservative member of Arizona’s state House of Representatives has proposed a mammoth overhaul of the state’s voting procedures that would allow legislators to overturn the results of a primary or general election after months of unfounded allegations and partisan audits. The bill, introduced by Rep. John Fillmore (R), would substantially change the way Arizonans vote by eliminating most early and absentee voting and requiring people to vote in their home precincts, rather than at vote centers set up around the state. Most dramatically, Fillmore’s bill would require the legislature to hold a special session after an election to review election processes and results, and to “accept or reject the election results.” The proposal comes after President BidenJoe BidenNorth Korea conducts potential 6th missile test in a month Clyburn predicts Supreme Court contender J.

    CHICAGO (CBS) —  One of the Chicago area’s largest COVID testing labs Is currently under investigation as people who took their test at one of the sites never received their results. If you never received your results, there’s a reason why. CBS 2s Chris Tye found out the number of states who are now looking into Northshore Clinical Labs.

    By SETH BORENSTEIN | The Associated Press With 192 lasers and temperatures more than three times hotter than the center of the sun, scientists hit — at least for a fraction of a second — a key milestone on the long road toward nearly pollution-free fusion energy. Researchers at the National Ignition Facility at the Lawrence Livermore National Lab in California were able to spark a fusion reaction that briefly sustained itself — a major feat because fusion requires such high temperatures and pressures that it easily fizzles out. The ultimate goal, still years away, is to generate power the way the sun generates heat, by smooshing hydrogen atoms so close to each other that they combine into helium, which releases torrents of energy. A team of more than 100 scientists published the results of four experiments that achieved what is known as a burning plasma in Wednesday’s journal Nature. With those results, along with preliminary results announced last August from follow-up experiments, scientists say they are on the threshold of an even bigger advance: ignition. That’s when the fuel...
    (CNN)Mitch McConnell is a very careful politician. He rarely acts rashly or speaks without thinking first. Which means that when he does talk, it's usually worth paying very close attention to what he says.Which brings me to an interview CNN's Manu Raju and Alex Rogers conducted with McConnell, the Senate minority leader, about Republican prospects in the 2022 midterms -- and, in particular, former President Donald Trump's ongoing insistence that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him."It's important for candidates to remember we need to respect the results of our democratic process unless the court system demonstrates that some significant fraud occurred that would change the outcome," McConnell said.Which is 100% correct. There is simply no evidence -- at the state or national level -- that suggests that the results of the 2020 election were fraudulent. None.And McConnell is right that focusing on the idea of a stolen past election is the surest way to lose a future election. Elections are usually decided by a candidate's vision for what comes next, not by dwelling on what has already happened.Read...

    Curt Schilling fell short in the Hall of Fame voting this year but his reaction to former Red Sox teammate David Ortiz getting in was a bit surprising.  Curt Schilling’s final Hall of Fame ballot came and went, and he’ll remain on the outside, looking in. His former Boston Red Sox teammate, David Ortiz, was the only candidate from this year’s ballot to get the call to Cooperstown. In the past, Schilling’s reactions to Hall of Fame candidacy and results have ranged from “I don’t care” to “Take me off the ballot,” never anything diplomatic. But when this year’s results were announced, Schilling had a surprisingly classy and kind response: Every year the conversation revolves around who didn’t get in. Like all star voting, who got cheated. I say it every year and especially this year, focus on who did get in. @davidortiz deserved a 1st ballot induction!

    Google has blocked any "made in USA" or "made in America" product searches for the past few days on its Shopping platform, thereby disallowing users to specifically find and buy items that have been made in the United States. Google said the blockage is a mistake attributable to errors in its server systems. "Entering a location in Shopping search will help a user find products for sale in a particular area, and will map to those when possible," a Google spokesperson said in an email to the Washington Examiner. "As such, the 'made in the USA' query was locating the desired products for sale in an especially broad location (the 'USA',) which caused an error in our systems. We’re working to resolve this," the spokesperson added. Search Screenshot The search error was brought to Google's attention by a request for comment by the Washington Examiner.

    NBC News national security contributor Frank Figliuzzi said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the “big lie” that former President Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential race coupled with racism was fueling a “semipermanent violent insurgency inside the United States.” Anchor Nicolle Wallace said, “It was our sense it could radicalize people who thought there was fraud. And efforts to do that kind of recounting in other places most likely contributed to, I think, a swelling, is putting it mildly. There is an explosion in support and a renewed acceptance and mainstreaming of the January 6 insurrection and adherence to the big lie.” Figliuzzi said, “The whole domestic terror movement and violent extremism movement is really based on two pillars, hate, race and ethnic-based hate, and we will throw in white nationalism and then the big lie, the deception is and disinformation that they have been suckered into accepting.” He added, “The problem is because we live in our own echo chambers because they are so hard to break through into and expose to sunshine truth and show them the court...
    Tim CookSource: Apple As the largest U.S. companies get set to report earnings, investors are torn between two ways of thinking about the technology industry. Microsoft is set to report after the bell on Tuesday, followed by Tesla on Wednesday and Apple the day after that. Amazon, Meta and Alphabet all report next week. The stocks are each down between 9% and 15% so far this year. Amid the slump, the bull thesis hasn't changed much. The world's digital transformation is in its early innings and has decades of growth ahead, whether it's from the transition to electric vehicles, the surge in demand for connected devices or the emergence of the crypto-economy and the metaverse. Cloud computing and artificial intelligence will transform every industry in the coming years, and investments in cybersecurity are required at an unprecedented scale. Tech's bellwethers are poised to capture huge amounts of consumer and business spending. The bear camp, meanwhile, has soured on high-growth tech stocks, particularly those that soared during the pandemic. Investors are witnessing inflationary pressures as the economy opens, and they're awaiting...
    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer on Tuesday said he agrees with President Joe Biden’s assertion that the results of the midterm elections may not be legitimate to Democrats if they are unable to pass two election and voter overhaul measures. “I think President Biden is correct,” the Maryland Democrat said during a virtual event with Politico. ARIZONA DEMOCRATS CENSURE SINEMA FOR OPPOSING FILIBUSTER REFORM “This is about our democracy,” Hoyer added. “This is about an America that really believes in making sure that the people's voice is heard and reflected in the outcome of the elections.” Biden, during a White House press conference last week, would not confirm that the results of the midterm elections will be legitimate. Instead, Biden said, it depends on whether Congress is able to pass two voter and election overhaul measures authored by Democrats. The measures would roll back voter integrity laws in 19 states that Democrats fear will limit access to the polls. The legislation would also reinstate and even broaden federal oversight of election laws and redistricting...
    Seat heat and wallet width don’t necessarily move in lockstep. Arizona State coach Bobby Hurley is out $20,000 following sweeping sanctions by the Pac-12 (reprimand, fine and one-game suspension) for his behavior towards officials following a loss Saturday at Stanford. Yes, the free throw disparity was something to behold (41 attempts for ASU, nine for Stanford). But Hurley’s abdication of leadership after the game was inexcusable: While players confronted the officials — one made contact — Hurley did nothing to calm the situation. Instead, he turned away, continued to rage and walked off the court, leaving responsibility for separating players from officials to an ASU staff member. It was a bad look for a coach under increasing scrutiny as his program staggers and stumbles for a second consecutive season. But Hurley’s accomplishments are too great, and the program’s downturn too short, for the school to seriously consider a coaching change. In our view, only a complete stretch-run cratering, with the players quitting on their coach, should move Hurley to the brink of losing his job. Now, let’s step out of...
    A new poll offering insight into Republican voters' outlook for the upcoming presidential election signals a major problem for the political party if it hopes to replace former President Donald Trump. Polling USA's assessment of a collection of polls conducted since November 2021 suggests Trump is still widely supported by the Republican Party as a potential presidential candidate for 2024. According to Newsweek, Trump appears to hold an average of 54% of Republican voters' support across multiple polls. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) trails behind him at 16% and former Vice President Mike Pence is third in line with just 7.8% of voter support. A Harvard CAPS/Harris poll, based on 1,815 registered voters, also produced similar results, showing "Trump has the backing of 57 percent of Republican voters to be the next GOP candidate for the 2024 election, with DeSantis and Pence polling at 12 percent and 11 percent, respectively."

    When Gov. Doug Ducey, a conservative Republican, was certifying Joe Biden’s presidential victory in Arizona on Monday morning, November 30, 2020, then-President Donald Trump tried to reach him on the phone — but Ducey didn’t answer. Even after that certification, Trump and his allies kept trying to throw out the election results in Arizona. And newly released e-mails from December 2020, according to Rolling Stone, underscore efforts by Trump supporters to steal Arizona’s electoral votes from now-President Biden. “The technology was complicated, but the plan was simple: Scan mail-in and absentee ballots in populous Maricopa County, remove the ‘invalid votes,’ and recertify the state’s 2020 election count, surely declaring then-President Donald Trump the rightful winner,” Rolling Stone’s Andy Kroll reports in an article published on January 23. “This scheme to subvert the election outcome in Arizona is laid out in newly released e-mails obtained by Rolling Stone.

    Trump spokesperson Liz Harrington shouted out Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, whose team was eliminated from the NFL Playoffs this past weekend, for casting doubt on the 2020 election, which Joe Biden indisputably won. During Steve Bannon’s War Room Pandemic podcast on Monday, Bannon asked Harrington, “How do you asses the first year of the Biden regime? About a year ago, you took off and went to work for President Trump or shortly thereafter 2020. What’s your assessment of what’s going on? What’s your assessment and the inner-circle assessment of the first year of the Biden regime?” Harrington said: It sounds like someone who ran for president three times and never finished better than fourth in [the] Iowa [Caucus]. Not like someone who got 81 million votes, which exactly right as you said, the country knows, the good news. There’s not a lot of good news. We see what happens after one year of an illegitimate regime in place. The only good news is the American people know it. I mean, you had four years of them saying the...

    UFC 270: Francis Ngannou vs. Ciryl Gane live results and highlights. Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane are undoubtedly two of the best current, if not the very two best, heavyweights in the UFC currently. But at UFC 270, when they face off, only one can walk away from the Octagon as the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and the title of “baddest man on the planet.” Ngannou won the heavyweight title in his last bout, which came in a rematch against Stipe Miocic at UFC 260 last March. Ngannou knocked Miocic out in the second round, giving “The Predator” UFC gold at last. It was Ngannou’s fifth straight win and the first time he went past the first round in a victory since 2016. Ngannou and the UFC couldn’t agree on a date for his first title defense. And so, the UFC booked Derrick Lewis and Gane in an interim title fight at UFC 265 in August. Gane finished Lewis late in the third round to score the interim gold. After winning the TKO heavyweight title in his first...
