    (CNN)Both vaccination and prior infection help protect against new Covid-19 infections, but vaccination protects against hospitalization significantly more than natural immunity from prior infection alone, according to a study published Wednesday by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Researchers analyzed the risk of Covid-19 infection and hospitalization among four groups of individuals: vaccinated with and without prior infection and unvaccinated with and without prior infection. The study case data from about 1.1 million cases in California and New York between the end of May and mid-November 2021. Hospitalization data was available from California only. Overall, Covid-19 case and hospitalization rates were highest among unvaccinated people who did not have a previous diagnosis. Omicron might mark the end of Covid-19s pandemic phase -- unless a certain scenario happens, Fauci saysAt first, those with a prior infection had higher case rates than those who were vaccinated with no history of prior infection. As the Delta variant became predominant in the US in later months, this shifted and people who survived a previous infection had lower case rates than those...

    Britney Spears has formally accused her father Jamie of splashing millions of her hard earned dollars while in his role as her conservator.  Court documents filed by Britney's legal team yesterday brought a number of claims against James P. Spears - referred to as Jamie - after he petitioned to have Britney pay for legal fees associated with her conservatorship.  Chief among the allegations made by Britney's lawyer were that her father paid close to $6 million from her estate to a security firm which allegedly managed to obtain private phone records of Britney's mother Lynne.

    A study published in Biological Criticism estimates that between 7.5 and 13% of the two million known species on Earth may have been lost since the 1500s. It ranges from 150,000 to 260,000. One New studio Developed by biologists from the University of Hawaii in Manoa and the National Museum of Natural History in Paris, it was determined that the sixth mass extinction of the species was already underway. Unlike the previous five, this method will play a key role for man. Although extreme natural phenomena have caused massive destruction of biodiversity in the past, human activities today are to blame. As pointed out DWDespite the evidence that this horrific phenomenon is unfolding around us, there are those who do not believe in scientific evidence.

    boonchai wedmakawand | Moment | Getty Images Putting your purchases on plastic is about to cost you even more. The Federal Reserve is expected to raise rates three or four times this year, starting as early as March. That means anyone who carries a balance on their credit card will soon have to cough up more dough just to cover the interest charges. Most credit cards have a variable rate, so there's a direct connection to the Fed's benchmark. As the federal funds rate rises, the prime rate does, as well, and credit card rates follow suit. Cardholders see the impact within a billing cycle or two. These days, the average consumer has a credit card balance of $5,525, according to Experian, and pays an annual percentage rate of roughly 16%, which is high but still cheap by historic standards.

    Hong Kong (CNN Business)China produced more coal than ever last year as its power stations struggled to meet demand for electricity, undermining plans to curb carbon emissions.While the surge in output helped bring the power crisis under control, coal prices are creeping up yet again this year amid expectations that China is going to need even more of the fossil fuel to power its economic recovery.Coal output hit a record 4.07 billion metric tons last year, up 4.7% from 2020, according to data released by China's National Bureau of Statistics earlier this week. Imports of coal also rose last year, to their highest level since 2013.China is already the world's largest coal producer and consumer, but its record production is notable given that just a year ago the country was touting aggressive measures meant to seriously curb its emissions. In September 2020, Chinese President Xi Jinping declared that the country would become carbon neutral by 2060, and his government took drastic steps in the first half of 2021 toward making that a reality — including shutting down hundreds of coal...

    A calf born with three eyes and four nostrils in east-central India’s Chhattisgarh state last week has attracted masses of people in recent days who are lining up to worship the newborn cow as an “incarnation of God,” the Press Trust of India (PTI) reported Monday. The female calf was born to a cow owned by a farmer named Hemant Chandel in the Chhattisgarh village of Nawagaon Lodhi on January 13. “The calf has an additional eye in the middle of her forehead and also four holes in the nostril. Its tail looks like a ‘jata’ (heap of matted hair) and its tongue is also longer than normal calves,” Chandel told PTI on January 17. The calf received a clean bill of health from a local veterinarian, according to the farmer. Word spread of the newborn cow’s deformities soon after her birth on January 13. The news drew dozens of curious villagers from Chhattisgarh and its surrounding area to Chandel’s farm, many of whom simply hoped to catch a glimpse of the rare combination of physical features displayed by...
    The Georgia man whose toddler son died after he left the boy in a hot car for hours is appealing his conviction to the state Supreme Court, arguing that prosecutors presented "an avalanche" of inappropriate evidence before the jury, which ultimately found him guilty of murder and child cruelty, among other charges, according to records and a report.  Justin Ross Harris, 41, is arguing through attorneys that the judge overseeing his 2016 trial should never have allowed evidence of Harris' extramarital communications and in-person trysts presented at trial because his sexual misconduct had nothing to do with the death of his 22-month-old son, Connor, and were prejudicial.   "The sexual messaging acts did not make it more probable that Mr. Harris would intentionally kill his child," Harris’s attorney, Mitch Durham, told the Georgia Supreme Court during the Tuesday morning hearing, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.  FILE - In this Oct. 3, 2016, file photo, Justin Ross Harris listens during his trial at the Glynn County Courthouse in Brunswick, Ga.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minnesota man who authorities say is a self-proclaimed member of the anti-government “boogaloo” movement and had discussed a willingness to kill police was sentenced Tuesday to two years in prison. Michael Dahlager, 27, of St. Cloud, pleaded guilty last summer to illegally possessing a machine gun. He admitted during his plea hearing he possessed two devices that convert a semi-automatic firearm into an unlawful fully automatic firearm. Dahlager was a self-proclaimed follower of the “boogaloo,” a concept embraced by a loose network of gun enthusiasts and militia-style extremists. The FBI began investigating Dahlager in November 2020, after an informant said he had the devices, known as “auto sears.” According to an FBI affidavit, Dahlager told a confidential informant he was preparing to “defend” a rally at the state Capitol on Jan. 17. Dahlager allegedly traveled from St. Cloud to St. Paul in December 2020 to conduct surveillance at the Capitol building during a “Stop the Steal” rally by Donald Trump supporters. He scouted police numbers and noted which streets would be blocked by law enforcement, among...
