The report, obtained Friday by NBC News, does not conclude that the directed energy was delivered intentionally, by a weapon, as some U.S. officials have long believed. Many reported hearing a loud sound and feeling pressure in their heads, and then experienced dizziness, unsteady gait and visual disturbances. CIA officials consider that a promising lead but not conclusive evidence. The study examined four possibilities to explain the symptoms: Infection, chemicals, psychological factors and microwave energy. Alexandre Meneghini / ReutersElectromagnetic energy, including frequencies such as radio and microwave, have been considered a leading possibility since the earliest days of the mystery.

(Reuters) - President-elect Joe Biden said Friday’s “grim” jobs report shows the economic recovery is stalling and warned the “dark winter” ahead would exacerbate the pain unless the U.S. Congress passes a coronavirus relief bill immediately. U.S. President-elect Joe Biden gestures to reporters as he departs after announcing members of his economic policy team at his transition headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, U.S., December 1, 2020. Earlier this week, he unveiled his economic team, led by his nominee for Treasury secretary, former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen. Transition spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters on Friday that Biden would announce more positions early next week, including members of his public health team. Trump, a Republican who has still refused to concede to Biden, is scheduled to headline a rally with Perdue and Loeffler on Saturday.

The pandemic has pushed millions of Americans to the cliff’s edge, with the ground crumbling at year’s end without further stimulus action by Congress. When federal emergency coronavirus relief protections expire, some as soon as the day after Christmas, 13 million Americans will lose their jobless benefits. “It’s another fiscal cliff when families have already gone over a fiscal cliff,” Diane Swonk, chief economist at Grant Thornton, told NBC News. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said Friday that there is "momentum" on Capitol Hill to reach a deal on coronavirus relief, further optimism that legislation could be approved before the end of the year. Laid off in March, her unemployment benefits — which expire on Dec. 26 — barely cover her rent.

ATLANTA — Former President Barack Obama and Vice President Mike Pence will hold dueling rallies courting Georgia voters on Friday, seeking to drum up support in the battle for control of the Senate. Obama is set to join 2018 gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams and the two Democratic Senate candidates, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, for a virtual rally Friday afternoon. President Donald Trump will hold a rally on Saturday in Valdosta with the two Republicans in the runoff, which is about a month away. If Republicans win just one of the Georgia seats, then the GOP will retain control of the chamber. Pence appeared earlier Friday alongside Perdue and Loeffler at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.

The cards are intended to fit into a wallet as a reminder when the second shot is due. Pfizer’s vaccine requires a second dose 21 days after the first and Moderna’s vaccine requires a second dose 28 days after the first. It's unclear whether the vaccine cards are intended only for people who get the Pfizer and Moderna shots. Not a vaccine passportThese vaccine cards are not intended to be used as a vaccine passport to get into bars, restaurants or airports. “Given the fact that we're in a pandemic and the seriousness of it, I don't know how much people will really need to be reminded about the second dose.”

LONDON — Hollywood actor Letitia Wright has triggered a wave of criticism from fans and followers after sharing anti-vaccination propaganda. Wright, who starred alongside the late Chadwick Boseman in the hit 2018 "Black Panther" movie,on Thursday posted a video on Twitter that makes unsubstantiated claims about coronavirus vaccines. The video Wright shared included a long monologue by Tomi Arayomi, a founder of a Christian ministry. Only 42 percent of Americans said "yes" to whether they'd get a Covid-19 vaccine when available, according to an August YouGov poll. Last month, eight prominent Black doctors wrote a "love letter to Black America" to encourage people to get the Covid-19 vaccine and overcome vaccine hesitancy and distrust.

The first shipment is expected to cover inoculations of 3.2 million people, nowhere near enough for the 21 million U.S. healthcare workers. That means some states’ health workers will be better protected than others. The approach would initially leave out around 190,000 healthcare workers in Alabama and more than 570,000 in Illinois, according to Kaiser Family Foundation data on healthcare workers by state. “We want to ensure our hospital capacity as much as possible through vaccination for those healthcare workers who are at highest risk for infection,” she said. New York state will receive 170,000 shots initially, enough for roughly 13% of its healthcare workers.

How to Handle the Covid-19 Vaccine Breakthrough the Right Way

If Covid-19 vaccines were only 70% effective, a vaccine taken by 70% of people would protect roughly half of society. At 70% uptake (and combined with the immunity of unvaccinated people who have recovered from the virus), vaccination could end the explosive spread of the virus. A researcher works in a lab run by Moderna Inc., which said last month that its Covid-19 vaccine was more than 90% effective, based on interim data from a late-stage clinical trial. ”No serious adverse events have been identified among the tens of thousands of participants in clinical trials of the leading Covid-19 vaccines. Related Video The U.K. granted emergency-use authorization for Pfizer and BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccine and could begin distribution to the most vulnerable populations within days.

As the cannabis industry continues to take root state by state, Congress will consider whether to remove marijuana from the federal Controlled Substances Act once and for all. The House will vote Friday on the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act, or MORE Act, which would decriminalize cannabis and clear the way to erase nonviolent federal marijuana convictions. Friday's vote would mark the first time a full chamber of Congress has taken up the issue of federally decriminalizing cannabis. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has slammed Democratic efforts to include diversity studies as part of cannabis reform, saying this year that lawmakers should instead focus on providing relief from the coronavirus pandemic. Still, McConnell, who supports the hemp industry, met with cannabis industry insiders last year in California, signaling to some experts that perhaps cannabis reform is much closer to becoming reality.

"Without considering racial equity, we deepen the cracks that systemic racism has already created in our health care system." Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith, an expert on health care inequality at Yale University, said testing and vaccine programs must consider fairness and equity along with safety to be truly effective. Mays, who was an early HIV/AIDS researcher, said many of the disparities experienced today in Black communities during the pandemic mirror what she witnessed in the 1980s. "Structural racism is embedded in our health care system." "These anti-family policies that have been in place kept our communities away from the health care system," she said.

CDC Director Robert Redfield has estimated that the department urgently needs up to $6 billion to distribute the vaccine. Trade groups representing state health agencies say it's closer to $8.4 billion. There is no strong federal plan for what happens after the first critical round of Americans are vaccinated in December and January. Dr. Dan Hanfling, a biosecurity and disaster response expert, said: "You can't say you're going to leave it to the states. Hanfling was among experts on an email chain this year who sought to warn the Trump administration about the coming pandemic.

More than 211,762 new cases and 2,858 deaths were confirmed as of Thursday evening by a Reuters tally. The stay-at-home restrictions will begin with 48 hours’ notice and remain in place for at least three weeks once they are ordered. The public health crisis has taken on more dire dimensions following a week of Thanksgiving holiday celebrations in which millions of Americans disregarded warnings against traveling and large gatherings. Health experts predict that an even greater surge could kill about 3,000 people a day over the next two months. And if there’s repercussions along down the line I am going to say that it’s worth taking that risk.”

Stirrup is said to have engaged in other misconduct at the Justice Department, including offering allies top department jobs without White House approval. On November 7, the Justice Department said it would look into Trump's baseless claims that the US election was fraudulent.

In an interview with CNN on Thursday, President-elect Joe Biden was asked if he thinks it's important for President Donald Trump to attend his inauguration. Inauguration days traditionally involve the outgoing president hosting the incoming president for tea at the White House, before traveling to the event together. Only five outgoing presidents have skipped attending their successors' inauguration. President-elect Joe Biden said he doesn't personally care if President Donald Trump goes to his inauguration, but that the attendance would be important for the country. The outgoing president then leaves Washington, DC, at the end of the service, marking the beginning of their successor's first term.

SEE NEW POSTSRacial disparities create obstacles for Covid-19 vaccine rollout Despite the potential for a vaccine within weeks, distrust of the medical community by Black andLatino people, who have been disproportionately affected by Covid-19, remains high as elected leaders and public health professionals work to prioritize its distribution. Overcoming systemic racism and the collective trauma associated with it will be paramount as officials rush to distribute vaccines to hard-hit communities, they warn. "Without considering racial equity, we deepen the cracks that systemic racism has already created in our health care system." The previous record came just one day earlier when the county also saw the highest number of new infections and hospitalizations.
