    The observable universe contains 40,000,000,000,000,000,000 stellar-mass black holes — that's 40 quintillion, or 40 billion billions, a study has estimated. Stellar-mass black holes are those that form at the end of the life of giant stars and have masses between a few and a few hundred times that of the sun. Experts from the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) used a new computational approach to estimate how many of these holes should have formed. Moreover, they said, these black holes account for 1 per cent of all the ordinary, or 'baryonic', matter in the observable universe, which is 93 billion light years across. The findings, the team said, pave the way to a better understanding of how stellar- and intermediate-mass black holes might evolve into supermassive black holes.

    Staffing shortages have forced more school closures around the country in recent days, and the locations of some of those schools should give pause to the flood of hot-takers wanting to blame it on teachers unions and Democratic lawmakers any time a school closes or goes remote.  Six elementary schools in Wichita, Kansas, were closing on Tuesday due to coronavirus-related absences. Three of the schools were public, three were private, and two of the private Catholic schools were planning to be closed Wednesday as well. A Wichita high school had to close last Friday. About 10% of students and 8.5% of staff in the district were in quarantine. Wichita isn’t unique in Kansas: Schools in Olathe, Kansas City, Eudora, Desoto, Manhattan-Ogden, Bonner Springs, and El Dorado have also had recent closures because of high COVID-19 rates. In Alabama, one in four students were on remote learning last week, and many schools in the state remained remote in the days following Martin Luther King Day. Elmore County, Alabama, was returning to in-person school on Tuesday, but anticipated school bus delays “due to a shortage of drivers and...

    WASHINGTON -- Under criticism after weeks of shortages, President Joe Biden's administration is working to make COVID-19 rapid test kits more available and accessible to Americans by boosting supply and lowering costs. A new federal website to request free test kits officially launches Wednesday - but was available to use Tuesday - with the first shipments going out to U.S. households by the end of the month. In addition, most Americans are now able to get reimbursed for tests that they purchase.Key details about the new programs:How can I request a free test?Free tests can be ordered at covidtests.gov or at usps.com/covidtest. The first tests will ship by the end of January. The White House says "tests will typically ship within 7-12 days of ordering" through the U.S. Postal Service. USPS reports shipping times of 1-3 days for its first-class package service in the continental United States. Shipments to Alaska, Hawaii, Army Post Office (APO), Fleet Post Office (FPO) and Diplomatic Post Office (DPO) addresses will be sent through Priority Mail.Importantly, given the shipping and process times, Americans will need...
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — The 2022 Grammy Awards will shift to an April show in Las Vegas after recently postponing the ceremony due to rising COVID-19 cases because the omicron variant. The awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 3, according to a joint statement released Tuesday from the Recording Academy and CBS. The show postponed its original date on Jan. 31 at the newly renamed Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles after organizers’ determined there were “too many risks” because of the virus’s latest surge. For the Grammys, it was attempting a back-to-normal show with a live audience, but the decision to postpone the ceremony came after “careful consideration and analysis with city and state officials, health and safety experts, the artist community and our many partners.” This is the second consecutive year the Grammys has been rescheduled due to the spread of the coronavirus. Last year, like most major award shows, the Grammys were postponed because of virus concerns. It was a big night for Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, but the live...
    Many migrants are being killed or brutalized on the global smuggling route created by President Joe Biden and border chief Alejandro Mayorkas, says Todd Bensman, a former intelligence official who now works with the Center for Immigration Studies. “A lot of people are dying,” Bensman told Breitbart News from the town of Tapachula in southern Mexico: I’ve been hanging out with Africans for the last two days — Senegalese, Ghanaians, Nigerians — and all had to come through the Darien Gap [the jungle between South American and Central America where] they saw body after body rotting on the side of the trail. “There are corpses rotting everywhere” – I’ve heard stories like that for two years straight from the Darien Gap. One group of Africans said their friend was shot in the chest by bandits on the trail because he could not offer them any cash, said Bensman, who tweeted a video of the conversation: This US-bound Senegalese migrant Who is among at least 100 in Tapachula, Mexico right now told me they all decided to journey when Biden entered...
    Black coaches are good enough to be coordinators in the NFL, but not head coaches. That’s the message the league has been sending, with hopes that it will change this year. There were eight openings soon after the regular season ended Jan. 9, leaving the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Mike Tomlin as the only Black head coach among the league’s 32 teams. Since then, there has been speculation about who will get hired and who has been interviewed, but that’s business as usual this time of year. And then no Black coach gets hired. Almost as tiring is the repeated line about “why do teams have to hire Black coaches? Why don’t they just hire the best candidate for the job?” That sounds good in theory, but maybe that question should be asked to the owners. Did former Jacksonville Jaguars coach Urban Meyer and current Carolina Panthers coach Matt Rhule have more professional experience than defensive coordinators Todd Bowles of Tampa Bay and Leslie Frazier of Buffalo? Really? The last time we checked, the Bills had the...

    EDITOR’S NOTE: Hall of Famer Julius Erving, an NBA and ABA champion, is considered one of the greatest basketball players ever and one of the sport’s finest ambassadors. He is an 11-time NBA All-Star and league MVP. As part of an Associated Press series on the NBA at 75, the player known as “Dr. J” shares some of the experiences that provided him with the foundation to help lead the transformation of the league during the 1980s.

    Lawrence Jones joined ‘Americas Newsroom' Tuesday slamming liberal DAs for supporting criminals over citizens after a 24-year-old UCLA graduate student was murdered by a homeless man in what was deemed a random act of violence.  MOTHER OF SLAIN NYC CASHIER DEMANDS JUSTICE, CALLS ON BURGER KING TO DO MORE LAWRENCE JONES: What we've seen consistently is a lot of these people on the street don't want help. You offer them services, they don't want; and you often offer them mental health support, they don't want it. And then you get a situation like this where they kill an innocent young lady that had a whole life ahead of her. These DAs don't care. They put the criminals before the actual victim. And you ask yourself, ‘When is enough going to be enough?’ …Look, I'm a reasonable person, and when there are civil liberties that have been violated, we can have a conversation on that. But that's not what's happening in this country. The criminals are getting the priority and the victims become an afterthought when they release these people.  WATCH FULL...
    Share this: Biltmore United Methodist Church is for sale. Already financially strapped because of shrinking membership and a struggling preschool, the congregation was dealt a crushing blow by the coronavirus. Attendance plummeted, with many staying home or switching to other churches that stayed open the whole time. Gone, too, is the revenue the church formerly got from renting its space for events and meetings. “Our maintenance costs are just exorbitant,” said the Rev. Lucy Robbins, senior pastor of the church in Asheville. “And we just don’t have the resources financially that we used to have to be able to do the kind of ministry work that we would like.”

    (CNN)As the US nears the start of a third year of the pandemic, many Americans are wondering when the ever-present disruptions Covid-19 has posed will diminish for good. But Dr. Anthony Fauci has cautioned that despite Omicron appearing to have less severe health implications, it's too early to predict whether we're approaching the endemic stage of when a virus becomes more manageable."When you talk about whether or not Omicron -- because it's a highly transmissible, but apparently not as pathogenic, for example, as Delta -- I would hope that that's the case," the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said Monday.The Omicron surge hasnt peaked nationwide, and the next few weeks will be tough, US surgeon general says"But that would only be the case if we don't get another variant that eludes the immune response to the prior variant," Fauci told the Davos Agenda, a virtual event being held this week by the World Economic Forum.A disease that is endemic has a constant presence in a population but is not affecting an alarmingly large number of...
    MSNBC’s Joy Reid compared Republicans who celebrate Martin Luther King Jr., but also oppose President Joe Biden on voting reforms, to segregationists on Monday. On The ReidOut, the host opened her show by sharing a number of statements from prominent elected Republicans from across the country on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Reid said, “Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a day when people who would have stood four square against everything Dr. King fought for — equal rights, civil rights the elimination of poverty, and especially voting rights — soberly repeat that one partial quote they memorized in high school.” She then shared statements from people such as Govs. Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) and Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR), Rand Paul (R-KY) and Marco Rubio (R-FL). Each had quoted King in either in-person remarks or on social media. Reid accused them all of either misinterpreting, selectively quoting or paraphrasing him to their convenience. Reid also aired a clip of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who had declared that no one in the Senate is threatening voting rights, before she...

    GETTING a picture-perfect sculpted stomach takes real work and dedication. If you're determined to rock some serious abs on the beach this summer, a mix of exercise and diet are the way to go. 1 A toned stomach takes A LOT of workCredit: Getty - Contributor How many sit ups a day do I need to do to get abs? Unsurprisingly, there's no magic number of sit-ups you can do to ensure envy-inducing abs at the end. But sit-ups are a great way of building core strength and increasing your overall fitness. According to Livestrong, combining three sets of sit-ups with 25 to 50 repetitions each is how to build and sculpt your abs. Better still, you only need to do your crunches three times a week if you're also combining this with cardio and strength training. How can I get abs? When it comes to getting yourself in tip-top shape, there is sadly no one foolproof formula to follow. Instead, achieving the sculpted stomach of your dreams takes a mixture of cardio, weight training and following a diet rich...
    Preet Bharara, a CNN legal analyst and the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, shared details from the prosecution of Aafia Siddiqui with CNN Newsroom host Jim Acosta. The 2010 case was back in the headlines on Saturday after Malik Faisal Akram, a 44-year-old British citizen, took four people hostage at a synagogue in Colleyville, Texas. After releasing one hostage in the afternoon, Akram was killed shortly after 9:00 pm CT during a standoff with the hostage rescue team. The remaining three hostages escaped unharmed. Before he died, Akram repeatedly referenced Siddiqui’s case and demanded her release from a federal prison in Texas. Bharara had led the prosecution team for the criminal case against Siddiqui, who is currently serving an 86-year sentence at a federal prison in Texas. Siddiqui has become “an icon among Islamic terrorists,” Acosta said, before turning to Bharara to share his recollections about the case. Siddiqui has been in prison for over 12 years, Bharara said. He described her as “a highly educated, extremely smart person who became a neuroscientist, educated at...
    Do you struggle to get a good night’s rest? In the wake of the coronavirus, millions more are reporting trouble sleeping — so much so that renowned consultant neurologist and sleep expert Professor Guy Leschziner believes we are on the brink of a global epidemic of sleep problems, as he warned on Saturday in the first part of his guide to help you beat insomnia. Whether your struggles with sleep are caused by stress, lifestyle changes, illness or are a symptom of long-Covid, there are many steps you can take to significantly improve your sleep — and pills are usually not the answer. We learned in yesterday’s Mail On Sunday how cognitive behavioural therapy techniques coupled with strategic sessions of controlled sleep deprivation can bring impressive results, helping to retrain your brain to view your bedroom as a haven of nourishing rest. But your lifestyle may also be contributing to your problems. In the third part of our series, Professor Leschziner helps you to identify your personal ‘sleep saboteurs’ — and offers his expert prescription of practical tips to help...
    HELSINKI (AP) — Denmark lifted a number of coronavirus restrictions and allowed the reopening of certain venues Sunday despite the spread of the omicron variant in the country. Cinemas, zoos, museums and theaters were among the places that could welcome visitors again. Limited numbers of spectators also were allowed to attend indoor and outdoor sports events. Visitors are required to wear masks at most of these places and provide proof that they have been vaccinated or have recovered or recently tested negative for COVID-19. The government is planning to relax coronavirus restrictions further in Denmark, a country of 5.8 million, on Jan. 31. Danish Health Minister Magnus Heunicke told reporters earlier this week that the government was monitoring the pandemic situation carefully and “wouldn’t have supported the reopening if it hadn’t been for a clear approach both from our own and from external experts.” The omicron variant is less likely to cause severe illness than the previous delta variant, according to early studies. Omicron spreads more easily than other coronavirus strains, and has already become dominant in many countries....
    How often do you charge your smartphone? Are you one of those kids who only has the privilege of going once every two days or do you feel like spending your life with a USB cable? Fast charging via USB-C with Oppo Find X3 Pro //: Frandroid It’s okay to charge your phone once a day … it’s starting to do twice!

    At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, essential workers were widely dubbed “heroes.” That didn’t mean they were treated well or protected with adequate safety measures, but people were talking about their contributions. Since then, company after company has rolled back already inadequate safety measures and benefits. Walmart already slashed the paid time off it gave workers with COVID-19, following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s gift to employers of an isolation period reduced from 10 days to five. Then Walgreens and CVS followed suit. Workers at a Washington, D.C., Trader Joe's say their managers have told them not to enforce a District mask mandate. Workers at Red Lobster restaurants say they've been pressured to work while they're sick with no paid sick leave, managers writing them up for absences, and “threats,” Judd Legum reports. The lives and safety of workers are treated with callous disregard—and management is basically hoping that customers who would rather not get sick don’t notice how their own health is being put at risk. ● The Park City Professional Ski Patrol Association came close to striking this week before reaching a tentative deal with...

'I am profoundly appreciative of the outpouring of support shown to me, my brother-in-law Don, and my family after the loss of my brother, Jorge Diaz-Johnston,' former mayor Diaz, 68, wrote of his brother. 'My brother was such a special gift to this world whose heart and legacy will continue to live on for generations to come.'  Diaz-Johnston's body was found the same day a missing persons report was filed by concerned family.  No arrests have been made as of Saturday morning, and police said an investigation is ongoing. ...
    London (CNN)There is never a good time for a sitting government to become consumed by a political scandal so severe that its leader faces daily calls to resign. But as Prime Minister Boris Johnson is embroiled in a crisis over allegations of numerous parties held in Downing Street while the rest of the UK was in lockdown, sparking national outrage, the timing is particularly tortuous for the governing Conservative party. For weeks, Johnson and his loyalists tried to wait out the scandal by refusing to answer even the simplest of questions related to some of the parties, as a steady drip of revelations emerged on an almost daily basis. But news of a "bring your own booze" party held in the Downing Street garden at the height of the UK's first coronavirus lockdown forced the Prime Minister to apologize this week and admit he attended the event. On Friday, the scandal worsened as it was revealed that a party was held in Downing Street the night before the funeral of Prince Philip. It was noted at the time that due to Covid-19...
    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) — With the omicron wave of COVID cases still surging, more downtown San Francisco workplaces are stuck trying to figure out if, how, and when they’ll return to their offices in some capacity. Leonid Plotkin, a small business owner in San Francisco’s Financial District, is watching closely. READ MORE: French Bulldog Stolen From Owner at Gunpoint In Oakland; Reward Offered“The most important thing probably is if offices just re-open their doors for their employees, at least part of the week,” he said. Plotkin has managed to keep his barber shop open throughout the pandemic, but as a business that relies on walk-in customers who work traditional 9-5 jobs in the Financial District, he has lost a huge portion of his clientele. “It’s been very up and down,” he said. “Last week was probably the slowest week for me since I came back from being shut down.” “Employers are kind of taking a pause and thinking, ‘What do we want our long-term plans to actually be?'” said Kelly Obranowicz with the Bay Area Council.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Some Brooklyn businesses have reached a breaking point after being burglarized multiple times in the past few months. Police say one man is responsible for most of the crimes. READ MORE: Westchester Housing Market 'Starved For Inventory' Means 'Intense Competition' To Buy Single-Family HomesRonny Jaramillo says his Park Slope restaurants were burglarized four times between November and December.

Sandwich Girl opened across the street two months ago. Just before Christmas, an iPad was stolen — the owner says by the same man who broke into Jaramillo’s businesses. “I had passed out wanted posters,” owner Shreen Elkenani said. “He came to apologize.” Police said the “he” is 58-year-old Charles “Chuckie” Wold, who lives in the neighborhood and has a drug problem. Since September, he’s been arrested for burglarizing at least 10 business — mostly in Brooklyn and a few in Lower...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Following the release of a comprehensive investigation into the disgraced Gun Trace Task Force, Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said the department has already enacted many of the 25 recommended reforms and will implement a series of others. Led by former Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Bromwich, the investigation offers a 20-year history of events and decisions that led to the Gun Trace Task Force scandal, including “persistent weaknesses in supervision and accountability” in the department.

    THE DAILY NEWSLETTER – FRIDAY, JANUARY 7, 2022   MEDIA WINNER: Brian Kilmeade “Good for Brian Kilmeade.” That’s how Mediaite’s Colby Hall began this column about the Fox & Friends host’s comments Friday morning imploring the nation to accept the results of the 2020 presidential election, and your friendly neighborhood Mediaite newsletter correspondent agrees wholeheartedly with that sentiment. With last year’s attack on the Capitol being perpetrated by supporters of former President Donald Trump who bought into his baseless claims of election fraud (along with a long list of elected officials and election workers around the country who have been subjected to harassment and threats), it’s clear the “Big Lie” is not some harmless frivolity, but a conspiracy that has sparked real — and deadly — harm. However, as Hall notes, for the 14 months since the 2020 election, Fox News has mostly shied away from clearly stating that Trump lost fair and square. Kilmeade bucked that trend Friday, telling his audience that American needed to “get past questioning election results” and “we have to, as a country, accept...

    Critics are speaking out against liberal soft-on-crime policies after a Baltimore man who was originally charged with 18 counts of arson was let out of jail after serving only six months.   Luther Trent set his ex-girlfriend’s house on fire while three people were inside. In a video he recorded after his release, Trent was surprised by his lenient plea deal, admitting, "I shouldn’t be out right now."  DAN CRENSHAW: AMERICA'S MOST BEAUTIFUL CITIES BEING 'RUINED BY LIBERAL POLICIES Marilyn Mosby, the state’s attorney for Baltimore, Maryland, is now under fire for only charging Trent with one count of arson, pleading him down from the original 18 charges to only one.  "This plea was just so disturbing on so many levels," said Roya Hanna, a former prosecutor who is running to unseat Mosby.

    NASA is running out of astronauts and will need more to complete all its space missions, according to a new report. The US space agency's Office of Investigator General revealed that the astronaut department is stretched as thin as it was in the 1970s. 1Nasa needs more astronauts, according to a new reportCredit: Getty Nasa has just 44 astronauts as of 2022. In 2000 it hit a peak of 150 astronauts. With nations all over the world in a space race to explore the Moon, it doesn't seem like an ideal time to have less people to send. Nasa has some ambitious crewed mission coming up including the Artemis Mission, which aims to put a man and woman on the Moon in 2024. It expressed its concerns about being understaffed in a new report. It stated: "The Agency may not have a sufficient number of additional astronauts available for unanticipated attrition and crew reassignments or ground roles such as engaging in program development, staffing Astronaut Office leadership and liaison positions, and serving as spokespeople for the Agency.

    A PROFESSIONAL cleaner shared a story of a nightmare ‘Karen’ client who thought she was being ripped off. Cleaner and TikTok user Kate, who goes by the username @KatesGreats, is known for sharing her tales of nightmare clients. 2Kate tells stories about her nightmare clientsCredit: @katesgreats/Tiktok 2She had to deal with this house, which was covered in drywallCredit: @katesgreats/Tiktok In this case, she reenacted a conversation she had with a “Karen” client who didn’t want to pay full price for Kate’s cleaning services. Kate said that she arrived at the apartment she was meant to be cleaning and it was covered in construction mess: drywall and dust were everywhere. When she phoned her client she asked: “Did you mean to schedule this as a regular turnover clean?” The client emphasised that the job was a normal clean, not a construction clean up, despite the evidence. Even when Kate showed the client videos of the apartment, displaying pieces of drywall lying around, the client wouldn’t concede that the job was more extreme than a standard clean. They even tried to claim...
    L:Elsa/Getty Images – R:Alex Wong/Getty Images The Committee to Protect Journalists has issued a special report praising President Joe Biden as a huge improvement over former President Donald Trump, but raising a laundry list of concerns. The introduction to CPJ‘s report — entitled “‘Night and day’: The Biden administration and the press” and written by Leonard Downie Jr. — says it all: President Joe Biden’s approach to U.S. media is a stark contrast to Donald Trump’s vicious rhetoric. However, one year into the Biden administration, press freedom advocates remain concerned about issues like the president’s limited availability to journalists, the administration’s slow responses to requests for information, its planned extradition of Julian Assange, restrictions on media access at the U.S. southern border, and its limited assistance to Afghan journalists. That quote in Downie’s headline comes from ABC News White House correspondent Jonathan Karl, who told Downie “It’s night and day,” and that “We’ve reverted to close to normal. In the late Trump days, you couldn’t talk to any officials on the record.” Downie’s report also trashed the responsiveness of agencies...
    DOTTED along a cold desert mountain valley lies a group of perfectly camouflaged snow leopards. To the untrained eye they are almost impossible to spot - but once you see them you'll wonder how it wasn't so obvious. 4Perched in an idyllic setting sits a group of snow leopards scattered across the mountain 4A second image shows more hidden snow leopardsCredit: Caters Living up to their name as the "world's most elusive cat", the group of scattered snow leopards can only be seen to a very sharp - and patient - eye. Ismail Shariff, 41, a wildlife photographer who specialises in capturing snow leopards in their natural environment snapped the incredible pictures in the Spiti region in Himachal Pradesh, India. Ismail’s collection of images have been taken over the last eight years. His brain teaser pictures have gained him the title ‘snow leopard man of India.’ He said: “Seeing them in their natural environment in the world, takes a trained eye but every time I do, it’s like spotting one for the first time.” Ismail...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: I am an older gay man, and married my husband three years ago. A college friend, female, invited me, just me, to her family’s lakeside cottage for the weekend. I spent many wonderful times at that cottage ever since college. This friend’s entire family considered me family, right up until I got married. I invited her, her family and their significant others to my wedding, but they all refused. So they definitely all know I’m married. This is the first I’ve heard from her since then. I wrote back and declined the invitation, stating, “I’m sorry, but I haven’t spent a night without my husband since we married, and I couldn’t imagine doing so now. But thank you so much for thinking of me.” Related Articles Miss Manners: They reached out to touch me and my brain screamed ‘no!’ Miss Manners: I think my brother’s quiet generosity should be acknowledged Miss Manners: We like the new neighbor but her hints make us uncomfortable Miss Manners: Did I come off...
    GRANIT XHAKA'S sending off against Liverpool on Thursday took Arsenal's tally to THIRTEEN red cards in the Mikel Arteta reign. Xhaka was given his marching orders for a waist high kick on Diogo Jota in the 0-0 Carabao Cup semi-final first leg stalemate at Anfield. 2Most red cards by Prem teams since Arteta took over 2Xhaka picked up the thirteenth of the Arteta era for a brainless challenge on JotaCredit: EPA The sending off was Arsenal's thirteenth in all competitions under Arteta - FIVE more than any other Premier League team. Arteta took over in December 2019, so in just a little over two years the Gunners have been shown nearly double the amount of red cards as anyone else. Southampton are the next most ill-disciplined team with eight reds, but the Saints are nowhere near Arsenal's tally of thirteen dismissals. Manchester City and Brighton take joint-third place, with seven red cards each since December 2019. Luckily for Xhaka his latest moment of madness at Anfield didn't end up being too costly, as his...
    (CNN)As Covid-19 hospitalizations reach new highs, more states and health care systems are cutting back services and relying on National Guard members to fill gaps in staffing.The surge from the Omicron variant, which was first detected in the US just over six weeks ago, has left frontline workers in the medical industry and others at higher risk for exposure. As health care employees need time off to isolate and recuperate, the need to treat those with Covid-19 remains. In Washington state, Gov. Jay Inslee said Thursday that hospitals will temporarily halt non-urgent procedures "so as much capacity and staff can be dedicated to emergent needs, the people who need this right now." Supreme Court blocks nationwide vaccine and testing mandate for large businesses, allows health care worker vaccine mandate to take effectMore than 155,900 Americans are hospitalized with Covid-19, according to data Thursday from the US Department of Health and Human Services, surpassing records set in last winter's surge. And hospitals are needing additional people to help provide care. In Wisconsin, National Guard members will be trained as certified nursing...
    This year after 2021 will see many orbits to the moon, not a single lunar orbit. Follow and follow the messages, press Live Messages This year after 2021 will see many orbits to the moon, not a single lunar orbit. The United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is launching the Artemis program and supporting a number of missions to send equipment and materials to the moon. For future use of astronauts India, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the United Arab Emirates. Both have been traveling to the moon this year as well. There are many companies making trips to the moon this year. All of these missions go into space without humans. And most will lay the foundation for sending humans to the moon within a decade. But that is not the end goal. Setting up a space station on the moon is only one step on the path to sending humans to Mars. Dr. Joe Leonard, an astronomer from the University of Bristol, hopes to launch a new international space race this year. Although these missions are...
    (CNN)You're ready to swap your old cloth masks for N95s as some experts recommend, but the higher price tag and two little words -- "single use" -- are giving you pause. How long can you really wear an N95 and still protect yourself and others from Covid-19 risk?"I wear mine for a week," said Linsey Marr, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech.An N95 mask's material and filtration ability aren't "going to degrade unless you physically rub it or poke holes in it," Marr said. "You'd have to be in really polluted air ... for several days before it lost its ability to filter out particles. So, you can really wear them for a long time."People have been talking about 40 hours -- I think that's fine. Really, it's going to get gross from your face or the straps will get too loose or maybe break before you're going to lose filtration ability," she added.The reason why N95 masks are designated as single use is because they're categorized as medical masks, said Erin Bromage, an associate professor...
    Sen. Joe Manchin on Thursday issued a lengthy written statement reiterating his support for the filibuster amid calls from some Senate Democrats and President Joe Biden to eliminate or scale back the rule to pass voting rights legislation. The House passed the voting rights legislation earlier Thursday ahead of an expected Senate vote. But without the requisite number of votes, Senate Democrats cannot pass it without changing filibuster rules. Manchin’s comments came shortly after Arizona Sen. Krysten Sinema reiterated her support for the 60-vote threshold in a speech on the Senate floor. The opposition from Manchin and Sinema leaves Democrats unlikely to pass their voting rights legislation at present. DEMOCRATS' AGENDA PLUNGES INTO UNCERTAINTY FOLLOWING BIDEN VISIT In the statement, the West Virginia Democrat cited May 2010 testimony from then-Sen. Robert Byrd, who was asked by “then-Chairman Chuck Schumer” to testify on the filibuster “because of his ‘unsurpassed knowledge’ on the subject.” Manchin said Byrd quoted James Madison who argued, “The purpose of the Senate was ‘first, to protect the people against their rulers,...
