But when Sawyer tried to call her last month with the good news that she would be allowed into the United States, she couldn’t reach her – Jasibi had been kidnapped again. Biden has filled many key immigration advisory positions with high-profile migrant advocates, including some opponents of the Title 42 border restrictions. Since Biden took office, U.S. border authorities have recorded more than 300,000 expulsions under Title 42. U.S. officials have said the Title 42 border restrictions are partly needed to protect government workers. In recent weeks the United States began admitting asylum seekers whom migrant advocates had identified as being especially vulnerable in Mexico.

An advisory panel to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention voted Wednesday to recommend Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine for use in kids ages 12 to 15. But most major pharmacies and clinics said they would wait for the CDC's input before vaccinating kids ages 12 to 15. The shots will be given in the exact same way they're given to adults — three weeks apart — with the same dosage. However, the CDC currently advises against people of any age getting other types of vaccinations within two weeks of the Covid-19 vaccination. Meanwhile, the American Academy of Pediatrics released a statement in favor of giving children vaccinations for both Covid-19 and other illnesses concurrently.

In this article GOOGLABI-BEAMZNBMBLCompanies like TikTok and Bumble are hiring college students to work as brand ambassadors on campus. And, in a hyper-competitive internship and job market, brand ambassador experience is one way to stand out, the students said. "Even the place that I currently work at, they specifically hired me because I had experience as a TikTok brand ambassador." Cedoni Francis, a 2020 graduate of Vanderbilt University, worked as a student brand ambassador for TikTok, Bumble and Anheuser-Busch.

(CNN) Vaccine advisers to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention voted Friday to recommend resuming use of the vaccine. On Friday, members of the CDC's Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices agreed the benefits of the vaccine outweigh the risks from rare blood clots linked with the vaccine. Of the 15 US cases of rare blood clots associated with the J&J vaccine, 13 were in women under the age of 50. The result is blood clots along with a low platelet count. Moderna's and Pfizer's vaccines have not been linked with blood clots at all, the ACIP panel heard.

On Friday, a federal advisory committee will vote on what to do with Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccine. The vaccine is on pause across the US after six reports of rare blood clots in young to middle-aged women who'd recently been vaccinated. Insider spoke with five of the 15 CDC vaccine advisory committee members who are meeting on Friday to vote on whether to continue the J&J pause across the US. Almost all of the reported cases of CVST in women who had the J&J vaccine started out with a headache. CDC ACIPThe clots, cases of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) are especially worrisome because they come with low blood platelet levels (thrombocytopenia).

Erick Williams, the executive chef and owner of Virtue, a Southern restaurant in Chicago, said his staff of 22 employees is about half the size it was before the pandemic. The starting wage for kitchen employees at Mr. Acheson’s Atlanta restaurants is $14 to $15 per hour, he said, up from $12 before the pandemic. He said this is particularly true in the Northeast, where restaurants on the coast are hiring for the tourism season. Many restaurateurs are also concerned that resuming indoor dining too quickly could cause another spike in Covid infections. (This week, the Aspen Institute’s Food and Society Program released a set of safety guidelines it developed, in partnership with other industry groups, for diners and restaurant employees to continue following.)

There are many ways a company's reputation — and thus its business — can take a hit, from a publicly shared controversial opinion to a major data breach to poor customer service. Threats to a company's reputation can come at any moment, from anywhere or anyone, Korschun added. Businesses build and maintain trust by setting and delivering on consumer expectations. Product quality used to differentiate companies, Korschun said. And being honest and transparent when a negative situation happens will help you regain consumer trust.

Softbank-backed delivery startup goPuff on Thursday said it will acquire alcoholic beverage chain BevMo! The agreement also means goPuff, which currently provides on-demand delivery of household goods in 500 cities, will significantly expand its infrastructure with the addition of BevMo! GoPuff was started by co-founders Yakir Gola and Rafael Ilishayev seven years ago when they were students at Drexel University. "Both in-home alcohol consumption and food and beverage delivery are up, which indicates demand," said Darren Seifer, food industry analyst at The NPD Group. As a result, Gola says goPuff can purchase at scale, keeping delivery fees at $2 per delivery, and making deliveries within 20 to 30 minutes.

You know all those snacks and personal-care items you need or want, at say, 11 p.m. but don't want to go out to get? Last year goPuff opened its 150th distribution facility, nearly tripling the number in one year. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the company has hired additional drivers to meet the demand for items such as toilet paper, cleaning supplies and over-the-counter medicine. The company even partnered with a distillery to source and distribute hand sanitizer. To help customers feel safe, goPuff launched noncontact delivery as an in-app option so that orders can be left on a customer's doorstep.
