Amy’s Kitchen previously told NBC News it does not want workers to unionize because it prefers to have a direct relationship with workers. A worker pushes a cart stacked with bowls at an Amy's Kitchen facility in Santa Rosa, Calif., on June 24, 2020. Amy’s Kitchen was also cited in 2018 by OSHA at its plants in Oregon and in Idaho following separate complaints at each location. “We value our relationship with OSHA and look forward to connecting with OSHA about this complaint,” Resch said. The hazards described in Ojeda’s complaint “are preventable if Amy’s Kitchen takes necessary precautions,” the complaint said.

A Tennessee school board voted to remove "Maus," a Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel about the Holocaust, from the district's curriculum after officials objected to eight instances of profanity and an image of a nude woman. The district had sought to use the novel, first serialized in 1980 and later published in two volumes, as an "anchor text" for eighth graders studying the Holocaust. One board member, Jonathan Pierce, described himself as "probably the biggest sinner and crudest person in this room," but said the book didn't meet his "standard," which he described as: "Can I lay that in front of a child." I’m just an old country school board member and I think in our policy it says the decision stops with this board." Another board member asked if the district could strip the vulgarities, but a lawyer for the district cautioned against it, saying the edits could be outside the "fair use umbrella."

Two people have been charged in a shooting that killed an 8-year-old girl as she held her mother’s hand on a Chicago street over the weekend, police said Wednesday. A 16-year-old accused of firing the fatal shot that killed Melissa Ortega and the 27-year-old driver of the vehicle involved were arrested this week, police said. And it is unacceptable that she is the latest Chicagoan to fall victim to senseless, senseless gang violence,” Brown said at a news conference. The driver, Xavier Guzman, was arrested Monday and also charged with murder, attempted murder and unlawful use of a weapon, police said.

EU rejectionIn November 2013, Viktor Yanukovych, Ukraine's pro-Russian president, rejected closer ties with the European Union by refusing to sign an association agreement on the eve of a summit in Vilnius, Lithuania. Yanukovych was pressured by Russia, which subsequently offered Ukraine economic assistance to the tune of $15 billion.

Credit... Joseph Prezioso/Agence France-Presse, via Getty ImagesUnvaccinated health care workers in roughly half the United States are required to get a first dose of a Covid vaccine by Thursday under a federal mandate that has understaffed hospitals and nursing homes bracing to lose more workers. The Biden administration’s mandate, which is to take effect in stages, will ultimately affect about 10 million health care workers in 76,000 hospitals, nursing homes, home-health agencies and other providers that participate in Medicaid and Medicare. Thursday’s deadline follows a Supreme Court decision on Jan. 13 that blocked a vaccine-or-testing mandate for large employers but upheld a vaccination requirement for health care workers at facilities subsidized by federal funds. Health care workers in most of the remaining states, where a lower court had blocked the mandate, will have until Feb. 14 to receive a first dose. To keep their jobs, all health care workers must be fully vaccinated a month after their first dose.

It would be "insane" for Russia to invade Ukraine — but that scenario is "not impossible," says former Prime Minister of Sweden Carl Bildt. The effect on Russia's economy and society would be very substantial, and people would likely mobilize resources to help Ukraine, he predicted. There are rising fears of war between Russia and Ukraine as Moscow has boosted its military presence at the border between the two countries in recent months. But the former Swedish prime minister isn't hopeful. Carl Bildt Former Prime Minister of SwedenIf Nord Stream 1 is cut, Germany will be in a critical situation, he said.

Akos Stiller | Bloomberg via Getty ImagesRisk of death from Covid-19 is significantly higher in countries ruled by populist governments, a new study has found. They found that excess mortality was, on average, more than twice as high in populist-governed countries than in non-populist governed countries. For every 100 expected deaths in non-populist countries, Covid caused an additional 8 deaths, researchers found. But in populist-led countries, Covid led to an additional 18 deaths for every 100 non-Covid deaths. Populist governments' communications on Covid were also "designed to downplay the severity of the pandemic and to discredit scientific findings," the Kiel Institute, a German think tank involved in the research, found.

The Netherlands lifted some of Europe's toughest Covid restrictions with bars, restaurants and museums allowed to reopen their doors, Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on January 25, 2022. This is in spite of high levels of infections across Europe, largely caused by the spread of the omicron variant. While Covid cases have peaked and are falling in the U.K., cases in France and Germany are still near records. On Wednesday, France reported just over 428,000 new Covid cases over the previous 24-hour period. Germany reported a new record of 164,000 new daily infections on the same day, but this was trounced Thursday, with 203,136 new infections reported by the public health body, the Robert Koch Institute.

An underwater volcano eruption near Tonga wiped out entire villages and crushed the island nation's infrastructure. The eruption was felt around the world, including on the west coast of South America, where large waves stuck the coastline. In Peru, those waves had an environmental impact, causing an oil spill that is roiling the country's politics. One week after the volcano eruption, it declared a state of emergency, with rhetoric calibrated to respond to the accusations of incompetence and inaction.

U.S.-backed Kurdish-led forces said they wrestled control of the last section of a prison seized by ISIS militants and freed a number of child detainees they had used as human shields. “The whole prison is now under control,” said Farhad Shami, a spokesman for the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces. After breaking into the prison late Thursday, ISIS militants were joined by others rioting inside the facility.

Agreements from betting firms and technology companies helped the NFL lure a record $1.8 billion in sponsorship revenue, sports partnerships consultancy firm IEG told CNBC. Sports gambling companies, casinos, and lotteries saw the most significant spike in NFL sponsorship agreements. "They've cut those categories (tech and alcohol) pretty fine," said Laatz, calling the NFL's sponsorship money a "runway revenue train." Laatz said he's "skeptical" of the NFL's overseas plan, which the league labeled the "International Home Marketing Areas." Laetz believes NFL teams' deals could be even more lucrative.

While some couples "spend down" their assets — paying off debt or making purchases that won't inhibit their Medicaid eligibility — in order to qualify, another option may be purchasing what's called a Medicaid annuity. This strategy basically allows you to convert countable assets (for Medicaid eligibility purposes) into an income stream for the healthy spouse — and not have it factor into the calculation. Jeffrey Levine Chief planning officer at Buckingham Wealth PartnersHowever, there are lots of details to know before running out to purchase an annuity for this purpose. What to knowWhen you apply to have Medicaid cover the cost of institutional care, the program takes a snapshot of your assets to determine eligibility. They would purchase an annuity with it that's payable to the healthy spouse, based on their own life expectancy.

Dan Kitwood | Getty Images News | Getty ImagesOmicron has almost completely replaced the previously dominant delta variant of Covid-19 in England, a new study has found, with the vast majority of cases being possible reinfections. The study found that 99% of sequenced positive swabs came from people infected with the omicron variant, with only 1% of infections being caused by the delta variant. Researchers noted on Wednesday that omicron's infectiousness had now led to the highest Covid prevalence ever observed in the REACT study. On Tuesday, the U.K. provisionally recorded 94,326 new Covid cases and 439 deaths within 28 days of a positive test result. In late December, Covid infections peaked in the country when it recorded 246,415 positive test results in one day.

Those interventions offer clues about what President Vladimir Putin may be thinking amid another buildup near Ukraine. Russian military action would likely be successful, but conditions now mean it would have high military and political cost. But the war would be extremely costly for Russia because of significant improvements in the Ukrainian military since 2014. Ukraine's military is far more capable now than it was in 2014. Satellite image ©2022 Maxar TechnologiesDespite the advances of the Ukrainian military, Russia's military, due to its sheer size, would still overwhelm the Ukrainians.

On January 16, a cluster of Afghan women marched near Kabul University to demanded the right to return to work and continue their education. A representative for the Kabul police did not respond to Insider's request for information on the location and condition of the young women. Afghan women march as they chant slogans and hold banners during a women's rights protest in Kabul on January 16, 2022. In addition, Afghan women have little resource if they experience domestic abuse – something that, women say, has been made worse by the soaring rate of unemployment and approaching famine this winter. They held signs urging Afghan women to "respect your worth" and saying that the protesters were not "representatives of chaste Afghan women."

The development came as NATO warned that Russia continued to increase its military presence along the Ukraine border. Russian officials have meanwhile, repeatedly called on the U.S. to prevent an eastward expansion of the NATO military alliance.

The US military has been winding down its operations in Iraq after years of battling ISIS. Iraqi special-operations forces are continuing that fight against the remnants of the terrorist group. Those Iraqi forces have been working closely with their US counterparts for nearly 20 years. Importantly, the Iraqi special-operations forces are separate from the Ministry of Defense and Ministry of Interior, giving them more flexibility and credibility as independent actors. Shortly thereafter, these commandos merged with the battalion-sized unit to create the first Iraqi Special Operations Force Brigade.

"After this seemingly non-stop pummeling, we finally have a bunch of stocks that are cheap enough to buy," he added. Cramer said he likes Etsy as a play on e-commerce and Enphase in the solar industry. He added that he thinks Twitter is "really interesting" and Pinterest may be a buy but it needs some time.

WASHINGTON — The Office of Congressional Ethics said Monday that Reps. Marie Newman, D-Ill., and Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., may have violated federal law and recommended that the House Ethics Committee further investigate their cases. Lamborn also "may have solicited or accepted improper gifts from subordinates,” which could also violate federal law, the report continued. The House Ethics Committee, which can reprimand lawmakers and recommend punishment for misconduct, said it would investigate the allegations in the reports. The ethics office said Chehade refused to cooperate with its review, and he did not immediately return NBC News' request for comment.

Russia has grown in both capability and confidence, and the combination seems to have convinced Putin that he is in the best possible position to reassert his demands, Giles said. The end result would be a continent that is dominated by Russian military power and held at risk by Russian missiles, he added. Ukraine is just an “unfortunate victim and the most convenient place for Putin to mount his demands with menaces,” according to Giles. Still, military action in Ukraine could be tricky to sell to the Russian public, especially if the standoff turns into a prolonged conflict. Experts and military analysts are divided on whether Putin intends to engage in a full-blown war with Ukraine.
