    New York (CNN Business)Potentially abysmal air travel interruptions were narrowly avoided this week when wireless carriers made a last-minute change to their planned 5G rollout in response to fears that new cell service towers could interfere with a key component on passenger jets that allows them to safely land in low visibility conditions.Warnings of mass flight cancellations came as AT&T, Verizon and the airline industry hashed out a deal to delay 5G deployment around major airports. And on Thursday, the Federal Aviation Administration cleared a greater number of commercial airliners to fly in the situations where pilots consider possible 5G interference to be the most dangerous. Now, nearly 80% of the United States' entire commercial airliner fleet has that clearance.In the end, crisis seemed to be mostly averted. No planes fell out of the sky. And — with a few exceptions — air travel stayed mostly on schedule. But we're not in the clear yet. The 5G-airline snafu: Everything we knowThe agreement to delay 5G deployment around airports is only a temporary fix, and it's not clear if all the...
    DEAR MISS MANNERS: In place of “sir,” “madam” and “miss,” how should one address a nonbinary person or a person whose gender is unknown when you don’t know their name? I once asked this of a friend with a nonbinary child, and she became very defensive, insisting that saying “excuse me” was a good enough way to address someone. I just don’t think “excuse me” conveys the respect I want to afford a stranger, nor does it go beyond getting someone’s attention. GENTLE READER: “Sir,” “madam,” “ma’am” and “miss” all fail to narrow down the particulars, either — and run equal risk of offending: “I’m too young to be a ma’am!” or “Don’t define me by my marital status!” being the most common (and rude) retorts. Miss Manners will do her part in asking everyone to calm down and exercise tolerance when it comes to these inaccurate guesses. But if we can avoid guessing altogether, that would also be helpful. She therefore defends your friend’s option — if not its defensive delivery — of simply saying “Excuse me.” Related Articles...
    (CNN)Americans, according to polls taken last year, aren't likely to hold strongly formed opinions on the Senate's filibuster rules. Those who do have a preference are divided, with views generally following party lines, although there's plenty of room for opinions to solidify.President Joe Biden brought the procedural issue to the national forefront on Tuesday during a speech on voting rights, calling on the US Senate to change the current rules, which require 60 votes to end debate on legislation, in order for action to be taken on the issue."I support changing the Senate rules, whichever way they need to be changed to prevent a minority of senators from blocking actions on voting rights," Biden said. Mitch McConnell calls Bidens speech incoherent and beneath his officeHis speech followed a promise made by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer earlier this month that the chamber would take a vote on such changes by Martin Luther King Jr. Day on January 17. Doing so would require support from two of the Senate's most conservative Democrats, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Arizona Sen. Kyrsten...
    DEAR JOAN: Seven years ago, I lost both of my cats within weeks of each other. I took it very hard. They had been my constant companions for a number of years, and I just didn’t think I could open my heart again. But I missed not having cats, and when a friend found herself with two cats that she couldn’t take in, I decided maybe my heart had healed enough. I am so glad I decided to take the risk, even though I know I’m opening myself up to heartbreak later on. The cats are such a joy to me. They aren’t quite kittens and not yet adults, and they are so fun and playful. They both like to snuggle, one in my lap and one beside me in my chair. Having cats again has also reminded me of some questions I have about their behaviors. One rubs his head on me frequently, and I don’t know what that means. They both like to get in boxes and that made me wonder, because my other cats did it, too,...

    DEAR HARRIETTE: My daughter and her friends are stressing out as they wait to find out which colleges will accept them. Harriette Cole  Many of them did not get into their first-choice school through the early decision process and are waiting for the other decisions. Each time somebody gets rejected, there are lots of tears. I don’t know how to support my daughter or her friends.

"I was all excited — and you know, they have to test us — and so they sent people to test me, and they tested me, and it was like, 'Oh no, you’re not coming back.

    Traders work during the IPO for Chinese ride-hailing company Didi Global Inc on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) floor in New York City, U.S., June 30, 2021.Brendan McDermid | Reuters BEIJING — Half a year since the rush of Chinese IPOs to the U.S. dried up, many details remain unknown for companies wanting to pursue such international listings. Since the fallout over Chinese ride-hailing app Didi's IPO in late June, authorities have increased their scrutiny of Chinese companies raising billions of dollars in U.S. public markets. A 10-year high of 34 China-based companies listed in the U.S. this year, but only three of the IPOs have occurred since July, according to Renaissance Capital. Regulators in both countries have issued clarifications this month on what's needed from Chinese companies to go public in the U.S. While it's a start, many questions about implementation remain. Over the Christmas holiday weekend on Wall Street, the China Securities Regulatory Commission released proposed rules for domestic companies if they want to list overseas. The public comment period ends Jan. 23. The CSRC's proposed rules...
    HOLLYWOOD (KABC) -- The new origin story "The King's Man" is packed with all sorts of peril. It takes us back to World War I. Director Matthew Vaughn says this story is really the foundation of what the franchise is about. It's when the first independent intelligence agency, the Kingsman agency, is formed to preserve peace and protect life.Vaughn says he got the right cast to make his kind of movie."It's always about the chemistry between the actors. And you never know until you start shooting. I don't like boring movies. I don't like boring books. I don't like boring anything. I like to be stimulated. So I do try and put that into the movies," said Vaughn.Djimon Hounsou and Rhys Ifans offer plenty of that in a big fight scene in the film."We were all experiencing the difficulty in putting this, you know, this sort of choreography together. The contribution of the stunt team and the body doubles and all that was absolutely, you know, brilliant," said Hounsou.Ifans had a blast playing the Russian mystic Rasputin."There's something very kind...

Sands Australia, a support service for bereaved parents, put together a list of things people commonly tell people who has lost a child.

    Throughout our lives as students, we work hard to get a good education that will lead us to a solid job and fruitful career. But we aren't prepared for what happens after graduation — responsibilities such as finding a place to live, getting that first job and paying rent and other bills. You can't just take the first job offer that comes along and assume it will all work out. It's important to find the right job that will pay enough so you can afford your rent and bills – plus have enough left over to spend and save. And what a lot of college graduates don't realize is that you can – and should – negotiate your first salary. "I think many students are more concerned about getting a job that they simply accept the first offer," said Anna Berrios, a licensed professional counselor at Ohio State University's Buckeye Careers. Just 38% of new graduates negotiate with their employers when they get that first job offer, according to personal finance site nerdwallet. But meanwhile, most employers actually expect to...

    IF you’re not sure what to do if you keep getting letters from debt collection agencies – a money expert on TikTok has come up with a solution.

    During the town hall, Fauci claimed that the new variant's emergence in the U.S. shouldn't cause Americans to change their holiday travel plans. But he did use the news as a platform to encourage adult Americans to receive booster shots and children aged 5 to 11 to receive their first dose of the vaccine. "If you can, just get vaccinated as soon as you can, and right now is the time to get boosted," Fauci said. The public health official has been a vocal supporter of the widespread administration of booster shots. Last month in an interview with Axios, he remarked that it's "extremely important for people to get boosters" and indicated that boosters would ultimately become "a part of the standard regimen" in fighting off the pandemic.

A new variant named omicron (B.1.1.529) was reported by researchers in South Africa on Nov. 24, 2021, and designated a “variant of concern” by the World Health Organization two days later. Omicron is very unusual in that it is by far the most heavily mutated variant yet of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Article continues after advertisement The omicron variant has 50 mutations overall, with 32 mutations on the spike protein alone. The spike protein – which forms protruding knobs on the outside of the SARS-CoV-2 virus – helps the virus adhere to cells so that it can gain entry. It is also the protein that all three vaccines currently available in the U.S. use to induce protective antibodies. For comparison, the delta variant has nine mutations.

    Chinnapong | iStock Editorial | Getty Images Cryptocurrency investors may face higher taxes as the infrastructure bill cracks down on future IRS reporting, financial experts say. The $1.2 trillion deal calls for mandatory yearly tax reporting from digital currency brokers starting in January 2023 to help pay for President Joe Biden's domestic spending agenda.  The measure may bring in nearly $28 billion over a decade, according to an estimate from the congressional Joint Committee on Taxation. While House lawmakers want to narrow the scope of which "brokers" must follow the rule, experts still expect a costly surprise for crypto investors who haven't been tracking activity.

    Life is worse than the virus? Facebook is a menace. COVID-19 is a menace. Conservatism is a cesspool. Together, those three ingredients have created a toxic stew of malevolent death and devastation. We can talk about all those things in the abstract, look at the numbers and statistics, and catch the occasional whiff of seditionist right-wing rhetoric. But I hadn’t really fully understood just how horrifying that combination of right-wing extremism, Facebook, and a killer virus was until I became a regular at the Herman Cain Awards subreddit.

    The coronavirus pandemic continues, and in some parts of the country and world cases are rising again — not news anyone wants to hear as the holidays approach. But after more stringent advice last year to stay home, experts say the public is now armed with more information and defenses and might consider an extended gathering of family or friends. More people are vaccinated, or like newly eligible younger children, might have at least one shot. Older or sicker people can get boosted. There is a bit more availability of home COVID-19 tests, though imperfect and costly as they can be. Decisions on how large a group to gather and how far to go this year might come down to individual risk tolerance, said Dr. Kawsar Talaat, a vaccine researcher and associate professor in the department of international health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Here is an edited and condensed interview with Talaat. The pandemic isn’t over, so even if everyone is vaccinated, are there any precautions needed to travel or dine with relatives or friends?

    New York (CNN Business)The information landscape about Covid-19 is bewildering, with factual and fictional claims competing for attention. And most American adults have heard at least a couple of the fictions, according to new data from the Kaiser Family Foundation.Kaiser, which is widely respected for its top-notch work on this subject, tested eight false statements about Covid. Nearly 80% of Americans surveyed said they had heard of at least one of the falsehoods and either believed it or are unsure whether it is true."Most commonly," the report's authors wrote, "six in ten adults have heard that the government is exaggerating the number of Covid-19 deaths by counting deaths due to other factors as coronavirus deaths and either believe this to be true (38%) or aren't sure if it's true or false (22%)."One-third of respondents "believe or are unsure whether deaths due to the Covid-19 vaccine are being intentionally hidden by the government (35%)," the authors wrote, "and about three in ten each believe or are unsure whether Covid-19 vaccines have been shown to cause infertility (31%) or whether Ivermectin is...

    New Jersey State Senator-elect Ed Durr, the truck-driving Republican who ousted the state’s Senate majority leader, said in an interview he was not sure what he’ll do upon arriving in the state Capitol. “Ed, what’s the first thing you’re going to do when you get to the capitol in Trenton?” Fox News’ Rachel Campos-Duffy asked Durr in an interviewing Wednesday evening. “I really don’t know,” Durr said, before paraphrasing the late Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld‘s famous quote about “unknown unknowns.” “That’s the key factor,” said Durr, “I don’t know what I don’t know, so I will learn what I need to know. And I’m going to guarantee one thing. I will be the voice, and people will hear me. Because if there is one thing people will learn about me, I got a big mouth and I don’t shut up.

    TIFFCOM: Netflix Picks Up 30 Japanese Titles From Nippon TV How Much a No-Gift Christmas Could Save You This Year and Throughout Your Lifetime © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad Bengals cornerback Mike Hilton was flagged for lowering his helmet to initiate contact on Jets running back Ty Johnson late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game and the penalty helped the Jets run out the clock on a 34-31 win. The call generated much criticism from those watching the game who noted the timing of the rarely called penalty and Johnson lowering his head among their complaints. Hilton appeared to ask what he’s supposed to do while speaking to officials on the field and referee Craig Wrolstad got the same question from a pool reporter after the game.

Here’s what Kyle Shanahan, Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers said about the victory. KYLE SHANAHAN I felt the whole offense was in a rhythm, which makes me in a rhythm when I’m calling plays. The guys made a ton of plays out there. And then we were able to make some key ones on third down.

On zero punts: “We were just messing with Mitch because he had a baby yesterday and we flew him out here to punt. At least he held, though.” On Mitchell’s touchdown: “That was really cool.

    DEAR MISS MANNERS: I came out of work in a heavy rainstorm. As I walked to my car, a man who works at the same place, but whom I barely know, came up behind me, put his hand on my umbrella and pulled it toward him. At that point it was half on me and half on him. I wanted to tell him off or pull it away from him, but since he works near me, all I said was that I was getting soaked. He ignored me and did not take his hand off the umbrella. We walked all the way to the cars and I was pretty much drenched. Miss Manners, am I obligated to let someone share my umbrella? If not, what should I have done or said? Related Articles Miss Manners: Who’s my friend? I really don’t want to tell you.
