He was there for less than ten minutes."Under Covid-19 restrictions at the time, indoor gatherings were not allowed, with people permitted only to meet outside in groups of up to six people.CNN affiliate ITN reported Monday there were two gatherings held to celebrate Johnson's birthday: one attended by as many as 30 people held at the cabinet office the afternoon of June 19, and another that evening that was hosted at Johnson's residence and attended by family friends. According to ITV News, Johnson's wife, Carrie, organized the small gathering in the Cabinet Room. A source who worked in Downing Street at the time has independently...

    As the Chicago Bears continue their methodical process vetting candidates simultaneously for their general manager and head coach openings, action should pick up soon. ESPN reported Saturday morning that Kansas City Chiefs executive director of player personnel Ryan Poles, a GM candidate, will get a second interview. It already was reported Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus will receive a second interview for head coach, something he already completed with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The first of four GM openings leaguewide was filled Friday when the New York Giants hired Buffalo Bills assistant GM Joe Schoen, who also interviewed with the Bears. Eight teams — one-fourth of the league — remain in the hunt for a head coach. Once the first domino falls in the coaching search, other teams could begin acting quickly. The Bears are proceeding at their own pace with hired gun Bill Polian leading the search, and they’ve been linked to nearly 30 combined GM and coaching candidates, something that has raised eyebrows around the league. “There aren’t eight head coaches in the group...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Seven restaurants have joined forces in a joint lawsuit against the city of Minneapolis, arguing for the immediate repeal of the city’s vaccination or test requirement for those dining out. The plaintiffs listed on the suit include Smack Shack, Sneaky Pete’s, Jimmy John’s, Bunkers Music Bar & Grill, The Gay 90’s, Wild Greg’s Saloon, and Urban Forage. READ MORE: Woman Killed In St. Paul's 4th Homicide Of 2022Minneapolis-based law firm Chestnut and Cambronne are representing the establishments. “When Jacob Frey’s ordinance came out, there was substantial consternation among the (restaurants),” said attorney Frank Rondoni. “They got together and contacted us and asked us to take action on their behalf.” Rondoni says while the city can dictate rules for bars and restaurants, he feels the way in which Mayor Jacob Frey created the rule violated his power. “There is a legislative process that he could follow, that he could always regulate bars and restaurants, but he didn’t follow that,” Rondoni said. “Mayor Frey’s approach is straightforward: keep our hospitals from being overwhelmed and keep our valuable small businesses...
    When President Joe Biden in March 2021 gave his first primetime address, he astutely pointed to the one thing that has united almost all Americans during the Covid-19 pandemic: a shared sense of sacrifice. "We all lost something—a collective suffering, a collective sacrifice, a year filled with the loss of life and the loss of living for all of us," Biden told the nation. Parents of school-aged children, like myself, are among those who have incurred a terrible cost throughout the pandemic, and continue to do so. Many students had no in-person instruction for a year-and-a-half. “Remote learning” is widely accepted to have been an abject failure. In places where schools are now reopened, rigid COVID-19 safety rules of questionable efficacy have made the typical school experience a shell of itself. The mental and educational tolls exacted on innocent kids may never be fully calculated. People are starting to notice. Despite all this, parents continue to be told they must be flexible, and so we have been. Most Americans learned to adapt because COVID and its variants couldn’t care...
    She was only a few days old when rescuers found her trapped in a ditch, dehydrated and in grave danger of dying from heat stroke. Beatrix the orphan baby elephant was nursed back to good health but her traumatic start to life had left her feeling timid all the time. Then Kadiki, an older orphan at the same sanctuary, stepped in to help. As our heart-warming pictures show, she even gently wrapped her trunk around Beatrix to reassure her the day she first met other - and much bigger - members of the herd at their haven in Zimbabwe. ‘Elephants never forget’, or so the old adage goes. In this case, Kadiki could perhaps have been remembering her own tough start when she dished out the ‘trunk cuddles’.

    Q: A question for the traffic guru. How do the MTC and Caltrans think they are helping motorists with their commutes and vehicle exhaust when they steal a lane on the Nimitz Freeway between Fremont and Oakland for a so-called “toll lane,” which leaves one less lane? Traffic is now stop-and-go, pretty much from 7 a.m to 6 p.m. all day long. How is that efficient for the average commuter? Herman Betchart, Fremont A: Express lanes on 880 and elsewhere have not resulted in much traffic flow improvement yet, but the goal is to provide incentives for solo drivers to find or create carpools to cut traffic. That’s why two people carpooling get a toll discount, while three people in one car ride free in that lane. We won’t be able to fully assess the situation until the pandemic is over. Q: Has there been any thought by San Francisco to make their downtown streets alternating one-way boulevards to relieve congestion? It sure seems effective in Barcelona. Bill McDonald, Redwood City A: There is nothing like this currently planned, although...
    (CNN)On Wednesday evening, the US Supreme Court removed the last obstacle to a congressional committee receiving critical documents about the January 6 insurrection. The National Archives has already started turning over Trump administration documents to the committee investigating the January 6 attacks, with more to follow. The House select committee can use this trove of evidence -- including handwritten notes, daily logs and draft documents -- to pursue accountability and to shape legislative proposals to armor our democracy against further assaults.JUST WATCHED'Extraordinary rebuke of the former President': Toobin weighs in on SCOTUS decisionReplayMore Videos ...MUST WATCH'Extraordinary rebuke of the former President': Toobin weighs in on SCOTUS decision 02:48The speed with which this case moved through the courts validates the committee's urgent approach to its mission, and undercuts the weak executive privilege claims that former President Donald Trump's allies have used to try to hide the truth from the American people.But -- perhaps as a tradeoff for the decision's speed -- it does not signal entirely smooth sailing going forward.In October, Trump, continuing his pattern of litigation to evade accountability, sued...

    Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday backed bipartisan efforts to ban members of Congress from trading stocks, telling Breitbart News on a press call House Speaker Nancy Pelosi performing significantly better than the market is “not fair” to ordinary Americans. “She has inside information. It’s not right. It’s not appropriate. It shouldn’t be,” Trump said when asked by Breitbart News about Pelosi’s stock trading. “She doesn’t want to discuss that. She wants to discuss other things that shouldn’t be discussed. Some of the things that they’re proposing now, like impeaching someone for absolutely no reason for a perfect phone call. You look at that. You look at impeachment—both of them. But you get impeached for a phone call that was like perfecto. So many different things. I happen to watch her and see her and dealt with her a lot and I think she’s clever in one way and stone cold crazy. She should not be allowed to do that with the stocks. She should not be allowed to do that. It’s not fair to the rest of this country.”...
    Tax filers in 2022 will face the same frustrations and delays that have characterized tax season for years now, heightened by the pandemic. Treasury officials recently spoke to reporters in a conference to begin the process of lowering taxpayers’ expectations. The IRS, they told reporters, is dealing with the pandemic and the fact that it has just 15,000 employees tasked with customer services, expected to handle more than 240 million calls. That’s about 16,000 calls per employee. The workforce at the IRS in 2022 is about the same size as it was in 1970. The population of the country has grown by about 60% since 1970. Officials also said that fewer auditors are working in the IRS now than at any point since World War II—when there were something like 200 million fewer people in the U.S. Republicans have forced budget cuts on the agency for years, with Democratic help, that have resulted in a 25% cut in the workforce at the IRS. “By definition, no matter how much more efficient you are, you can’t lose 25 percent of the workforce and...
    Do you struggle to get a good night’s rest?

    SCREAM is back with an all-new installment in the iconic franchise, and Friday's new release features a bunch of returning cast members, as well as a slew of fresh stars. With the 2022 slasher sequel now out in theaters, take a look at where the original 1996 cast – including Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox – is now, over two decades later. 9The original Scream movie came out in 1996Credit: Rex Neve Campbell (Sidney Prescott) 9Credit: Dimension Films/Kobal/Shutterstock / Getty The Canadian actress, 48, made a name for herself as the main character, high school student Sidney, in the Scream franchise, which kicked off in 1996. Aside from the slasher series, which sees masked Ghostface killers terrorizing Sidney and all those around her, Neve also starred on the popular family drama Party of Five, from 1994 to 2000. Most recently, she worked on Netflix’s House of Cards as LeAnn Harvey and also starred in the Disney+ musical drama, Cloud, which came out last year. She’s been married and divorced twice – to Jeff Colt, from 1995 to 1998, and to...
    Jim Harbaugh pretty much killed the narrative that he is leaving Michigan for the NFL. Ahead of the Paul “Bear” Bryant Awards in Houston, Texas on Wednesday night, Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh essentially ended any notion that he will leave the Wolverines for an NFL job this offseason. “I’ve got the whole family down here,” said Harbaugh on AM-610 Sports Radio in Houston. “Wife Sarah, sons Jack and John, Katie and Addie, we’re all down here and we’re here today. We’re going to maybe fined some fun stuff to do with the family tomorrow.” “Just got to enjoy these days with your family because we hit the road recruiting in the next couple of days. It’s kind of the last couple of days to spend with the family, and I couldn’t think of a better place to be.” The big key in Harbaugh’s quote is part about recruiting. Michigan is coming off its best season in a generation. Though the Wolverines are a blue-blood program, they have not had this type of recruiting momentum in years. This is how the Wolverines...
    Prince Andrew's reputation is 'damaged beyond repair' following a decision by a US judge to allow a civil case to be brought against him by Virginia Giuffre, experts warned. Specialists in reputation management told MailOnline that not only has Andrew been tarnished by the allegations but so has the rest of the Royal Family with legal proceedings against him set to get underway later this year. Simon Wadsworth, managing partner at Igniyte, a company which specialises in reputation management, said: 'I think it's a long slog from here regardless of the outcomes of any proceedings going forward and any gestures to redeem the situation may only worsen the situation.  'He (Andrew) may be best to stay out of the public eye for the foreseeable future.' He further warned: 'This has damaged the rest of the Royal Family by association. It's difficult for them to control the narrative, so hard for them to influence public opinion.  'The option of keeping him in a low profile looks to be increasingly difficult when this goes to a hearing.' Specialists in reputation management told...

    LONDON is “clearly past the peak” of Omicron, experts say, while cases are slowing in the rest of the country. The fast-spreading mutant variant caused chaos over the festive period, with millions of infections - but there are signs this was the worst of it. 1London may have seen the worst of the Omicron wave of infectionsCredit: w8media Professor Kevin Fenton, Public Health England’s regional director for London, said officials are starting to see a decrease in Covid prevalence in the capital. “We think we may have passed or are at the peak,” he told Sky News on Sunday morning.  “Data from the ONS [Office for National Statistics] suggests that the peak may have occurred at or just about New Year period and we’re seeing reductions in overall case rates across the city and the prevalence of infections within the community.” “Remember that infection levels are still very, very high… It means that we’re not yet out of this critical phase of the pandemic, although we may well be past the peak.

    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — On Sunday afternoon, there didn’t appear to be much left for interpretation regarding Antonio Brown’s status with the Buccaneers. “He is no longer a Buc, all right? That’s the end of the story,” head coach Bruce Arians angrily told the media. “I’m not talking about him. He’s not a part of the Bucs.” Yet it’s now Wednesday, and Brown remains very much a member of the Bucs. The wide receiver wasn’t released on Monday, and he wasn’t released on Tuesday, meaning his contract with the Buccaneers remains active. Why and how that’s the case has yet to be explained, but the Brown situation appears to be far from resolved. On the one hand, reporter Josina Anderson said that if Antonio Brown wants to play for someone else, there will be teams interested in his services. (Yes, despite … everything that comes along with Brown, he is that good at football.) If Antonio Brown wants a job on another team in the NFL, he can have one. That is not an opinion. That is what I know. —...

    BOSTON (CBS) — New England is warming up faster than the rest of the world, researchers say. A new study led by environmental sustainability professor Stephen Young of Salem State University finds average temperatures in the region increased 3.29 degrees between 1900 and 2020. The rest of the planet warmed 2 degrees over that same time period.

    Alabama football coach Nick Saban has made it clear the only thing that matters is what happens Friday against Cincinnati. According to Charlie Potter, the seven-time national champion revealed the team isn’t leaving the hotel in Dallas after players voted to stay in a bubble of their own making.

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire will not miss the rest of the season, which should be considered a win for Andy Reid and Co. CEH suffered what appeared to be a severe shoulder injury in Sunday’s win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. While Edwards-Helaire is expected to miss some time, he should be back in time for the postseason assuming he doesn’t suffer a setback. Per Adam Schefter, “Chiefs’ RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire is now considered week-to-week with a bruised shoulder, per a league source. It will be challenging for Edwards-Helaire to play Sunday vs. Cincinnati but the fact that it is on the table is a win for CEH and the Chiefs.” This is considered good news for Kansas City. In the meantime, expect Darrel Williams to get the majority of the carries in the backfield behind Patrick Mahomes.

    CBS News’ Jan Crawford on Sunday said she believed that closing schools for fear of Covid-19 had a “crushing” impact on American students. “My kids hear me rant about this every day,” Crawford said in a Face the Nation segment about underreported stories. “So I may as well tell you guys. It’s the crushing impact that our Covid policies have had on young kids and children, by far the least serious risk for serious illness.” Citing Surgeon General Vivek Murthy’s assessment that there was an emerging “epidemic” of “mental health challenges” among young people who had lived through Covid-19 lockdowns, Crawford argued that the cost of closing schools had outweighed the benefits. “Even teenagers, I mean, a healthy teenager has a one-in-a-million chance of getting … and dying from Covid, which is way lower than dying in a car wreck on a road trip,” Crawford said. “But they have suffered and sacrificed the most, especially kids in underrepresented and at-risk communities. And now we have the surgeon general saying there’s a mental health crisis among our kids. The risk of...
    There’s no denying that the month of December is peak eggnog time. The sweet and spicy beverage has been a holiday staple for hundreds of years, but not everyone knows what it’s made out of, where it comes from or why we drink it near each year’s end. That’s not the case with "eggspert" Jim Chakeres, an executive vice president at the Ohio Poultry Association, who knows the history behind the seasonal drink. 9 DOWNRIGHT DELICIOUS EGGNOG DESSERT RECIPES TO BRIGHTEN UP YOUR HOLIDAY "Eggnog, which is actually a drinkable form of custard, originated in medieval Britain where locals created a hot, creamy ale-like drink," Chakeres told Fox News. "The name, ‘Eggnog,’ is a combination of ‘noggin,’ a wooden cup, and ‘grog,’ a strong beer." There’s no denying that the month of December is peak eggnog time. (iStock) He continued, "Early colonists traveling to America helped the drink become popular during the holidays as locally farmed eggs and milk, in addition to locally made rum and whisky was readily available." Americans went on to create eggnog recipes of their own,...

    (CNN)The ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum has been ordered to pay his ex-wife Princess Haya bint al-Hussein more than $728 million (£500 million), in one of the largest divorce settlements ever handed down by a UK court.The figure will be used to cover Princess Haya's security costs for the rest of her life, as well as ongoing costs for her and Sheikh Mohammed's two children -- Al Jalila Bint Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Sheikh Zayed Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum -- with an upfront payment of $333 (£251.5m) due in the next three months.There is no fixed value on the total settlement, as the court found Sheikh Mohammed should pay the annual security costs for his two children, aged nine and 14, for the rest of their lives or until a further court order is issued.

    Omicron cases in the South African ground zero peaked on December 6 but are still rising in the rest of the country. Three weeks after the start of the wave, cases of the variant reached their highest level in Gauteng, which was first to feel the full force of the variant.  A total of 68,181 tests were conducted in the last 24hrs, according to The National Institute For Communicable Diseases Of South Africa (NICD). It said there were 20,713 new cases, representing a 30.4 per cent positivity rate.  Charts tracking the rate of Omicron across South Africa show cases are falling in Gauteng, while rising elsewhere. After reaching a peak of 10,100 per day on December 7 on a seven-day moving average, cases are now around 8,000 per day, according to Louis Rossouw, who has written a scientific paper on the Omicron variant in the country.

    Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson missed practice for the second straight day Thursday as he continues to recover from an ankle sprain he suffered against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Ravens offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Jackson is receiving treatment around the clock and his status for Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers could go down to the wire. “He’s a good healer, but we will have to see what the [doctors] say,” Roman said. If Jackson can’t go, backup quarterback Tyler Huntley will start for the second time this season. Veteran quarterback Josh Johnson, who the Ravens signed off the New York Jets’ practice squad Wednesday, practiced Thursday. Jackson is among 10 players who did not practice Thursday. Tight end Nick Boyle, defensive tackle Calais Campbell (thigh), fullback Patrick Ricard (back/knee) and offensive linemen Alejandro Villanueva (knee), Ben Powers (foot) and Tyre Phillips (illness) were out for second straight day. Wide receiver Marquise “Hollywood” Brown (illness), safety Chuck Clark (reserve/COVID-19 list) and defensive Brandon Williams (rest) also did not practice. Offensive lineman Patrick...
    Fox News' Tucker Carlson joined "Fox & Friends" Thursday to discuss the Kyle Rittenhouse case, challenging the media for ‘lying about what happened.’ Carlson sat down with Rittenhouse in an exclusive interview for Fox Nation's 'Tucker Carlson Originals.'  TUCKER CARLSON’S EXCLUSIVE RITTENHOUSE INTERVIEW DRAWS NEARLY 5 MILLION VIEWERS TO TOP CNN, MSNBC COMBINE TUCKER CARLSON: I mean, the whole story was so shocking. First of all, it was a tragedy. People died, so that really kind of stopped us in our tracks. Any time an American dies you feel sad about it the matter who the person is, but we had the tape within hours that showed this guy was being pursued by three people, all convicted felons who are trying to kill him. It was a scene that was filled with people with guns running around.  … Here was a kid who was trying to help his own community. He defends himself and he is charged with murder; so from day one, it was really clear that this had a deep implication for the rest of us - with...
    A Missouri school area district has been ordered to pay a transgender student $4million in a sex discrimination pay out after refusing to let him use the boys' restrooms. A jury in Jackson County ruled on Monday that the Blue Springs School District had discriminated against the student, known as RMA, who reportedly transitioned from female to male at age nine. Despite changing his name in 2010 and his birth certificate in 2014, the boy was still not allowed to use the boys' restroom and locker rooms at several schools, including Delta Woods Middle School and Blue Springs High School Freshman Campus, Fox News reported. The jury has awarded the former student $175,000 in compensatory damages as well as $4million in punitive damages. The plaintiff has also requested the school district cover the attorney fees.

    As we enter into the final few weeks of 2021 and a new year, I can't help but feel an underlying sense of anxiety and hesitation about what 2022 could possibly bring us. I am not trying to sound like The Grinch but I, like most of you, remember the excitement and jubilation of New Year's 2020 as we were entering a new decade, 'the roaring twenties' if you will. My husband and I were heavily tipsy on a rooftop in Barcelona, Spain watching fireworks and I remember feeling blissfully happy and full of anticipation and optimism for the new decade. We all know what happened next, and for that matter, what has happened in the two years that followed. I don't need to tell any of you how much has changed for all of us. My daughter is 14-months-old and I am dreading her turning two-year-old because I have no idea how I could keep a mask on a child for an extended period of time. She can barely keep a headband on her head. I also don't want...
    PHILADELPHIA — The record soon to be broken encompasses only a fraction of Steph Curry’s success from beyond the 3-point arc. For every one of the 2,964 3-pointers he has made over the last 14 seasons, hundreds more swish through the net every week in practice. Yet, for his teammates and coaches, past and present, one shot stands out. You know the one. Bang. Bang. “The Oklahoma City shot will always stand out,” coach Steve Kerr said. “That half-court game-winner versus OKC,” said Kevon Looney, who witnessed it from the bench as a 20-year-old rookie. Curry will enter Saturday night’s game at Philadelphia — against his brother, Seth, and the 76ers — needing 10 3-pointers to pass Ray Allen for the NBA career record. With one shot, on Feb. 27, 2016, Curry cemented his place in Warriors lore. On a bad ankle, Curry completed a comeback in an overtime thriller against a Thunder squad at home and at the height of its powers Its heroic nature — and ESPN commentator Mike Breen’s...

Speaking to Deadline, the actress explained that Garson - who succumbed to pancreatic cancer in September at the age of 57 - had confided in Sarah Jessica Parker before revealing his diagnosis to the rest of the cast.

    Jeffrey Epstein victim Sarah Ransome has said she wants to see Ghislaine Maxwell 'behind bars for the rest of her life'.  She claims Maxwell, who is on trial for recruiting and grooming underage girls, 'tortured and abused' her and 'other survivors' while trying to shore up his 'social credibility'.     'Jeffrey's dead. Ghislaine's here. I want Ghislaine behind bars for the rest of her life purely because she is that sick. The public are not safe with her on the street,' Ransome told CBS News.     Ransome has said she was introduced to Epstein aged 22 in 2006 after being approached by a woman in a nightclub in New York.  She was later lured to the disgraced billionaire's island on Little St James in the Caribbean, where she spent five months being abused and was raped three times a day.    Jeffrey Epstein victim Sarah Ransome has said she wants to see Ghislaine Maxwell 'behind bars for the rest of her life' in an interview with CBS News Ghislaine Maxwell is on trial on six counts, including sex trafficking of a minor, and faces...
    Corey Davis has been ruled out for the rest of the season after injuring his core muscle against the Eagles on Sunday. Davis will have surgery on the muscle, Robert Saleh said Monday. Davis was already questionable with a groin injury heading into that game, but Saleh wasn’t sure if playing through that injury caused this season-ending one. “It’s a fair question. He was cleared. Went through a lot of different procedures to try to get that thing ready to roll,” Saleh said. “It’s unfortunate it just finally gave out.” Davis was injured early in the fourth quarter when Zach Wilson floated a pass to him down the sideline that fell incomplete. Davis tumbled and crashed on the sideline before getting up gingerly then limped away. Davis dealt with a hip injury that caused him to miss the Bengals and Colts matchups in Weeks 8 and 9. He returned against the Bills and caught five passes for 95 yards. Davis played against the Dolphins on Nov. 21, hurting his groin in that afternoon, which caused him...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh on Monday confirmed the team’s top cover man, Marlon Humphrey, will be out for the rest of the season after suffering a torn pectoral during Sunday’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. “I’d prefer to have him, for sure,” Harbaugh said. “We’ll go on with the guys we’ve got, we have really good players that can step in and play. We’ll be ready to go.” READ MORE: Pending Regulatory Approval, Sportsbook At Horseshoe Casino Could Open FridayHarbaugh said the team would spend the week determining who will take Humphrey’s place in coverage.

    Justin Fields’ performance in the stretch run of the season will set the tone in terms of what the Chicago Bears roster looks like going forward. Complicating that is the ribs injury he suffered Nov. 21 during the aggravating 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Fields missed the Thanksgiving Day victory in Detroit and Andy Dalton is set to start again Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals at Soldier Field. If you are compiling a list of young players not named Fields in position to offer hope for the future, start with outside linebacker Trevis Gipson. The 2020 fifth-round pick hasn’t gotten the attention given to wide receiver Darnell Mooney, tight end Cole Kmet, cornerback Jaylon Johnson, offensive tackles Larry Borom and Teven Jenkins or even running back Khalil Herbert, but Gipson is a player the Bears need to take a large step forward in the final six games. The others, of course, have carved out niches for themselves or are working to do that. Gipson has flashed on occasion, and with 17 games of experience entering...
    "Let me be clear, not a single vaccine dose America ever sends to the rest of the world will ever come at the expense of any American," Biden said. "I'll always make sure that our people are protected first. But vaccinating the rest of the world is not just a moral tool – a moral obligation we have – in my view. It's how we protect Americans." The president also addressed the Omicron variant of coronavirus, which was discovered by South African scientists last week and now has confirmed cases in Colorado, Minnesota, and California. "As I explained on Monday, this new variant is cause for concern but not panic," Biden said. “We have the best tools, the best vaccines in the world, the best medicine and the best scientists in the world. We are going to fight this variant with science and speed, not chaos and confusion.” He added: “We don’t yet believe that additional measures will be needed. But so that we’re prepared if needed, my team is already working with officials at Pfizer, Moderna...
