EU kicks off debate on vaccine travel certificates

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Union countries kicked off a debate on Monday on whether people who have received a COVID-19 vaccine should have greater freedom to travel in the summer than those not immunized. FILE PHOTO: A nurse prepares a dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus disease (COVID-19) vaccine at Matei Bals Infectious Diseases Institute in Bucharest, Romania, December 27, 2020. However, vaccination could become a condition for travel, like current requirements in many countries for a negative COVID test. Sefcovic said EU countries needed to be largely synchronised to help keep open its single market, which allows freedom of movement of people and workers. Many EU nations say they are receiving lower-than-expected supplies of COVID-19 vaccines and complain of uncertainty over future deliveries, EU officials have told Reuters.

ET Live Updates: As Biden’s Inauguration Approaches Pressure Mounts on Some Trump Appointees The director of the Census Bureau resigned after claims that he politicized his role. The bureau acknowledged this month that it would be unable to produce the immigrant count sought by the administration before Mr. Trump left office. The report denounces the project, as did Mr. Trump in his September speech announcing the commission. Mr. Trump’s administration reversed that decision in early 2017, giving a green light for construction of the project to begin. The three choices are either strong loyalists to Mr. Trump or fierce critics of Ms. Whitmer.

Opinion | A Ray of Hope in a Slimy Southern Cave
  + stars: | 2021-01-16 | by ( Michael Ray Taylor | ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -0.96   time to read: +1 min
Even a muddy, featureless tube teems with life in a Southern cave, if you look carefully. In a wide crack just beyond my head lay a shadow shaped like the letter “S,” darker than the blackness of the cave. I was looking at a slimy salamander, specifically Plethodon glutinosus, the northern slimy salamander. Its shimmering black eyes studied the intrusive light, its head broad and somehow childlike relative to its amphibian body. Slimies travel back and forth from cave to forest — a sign that I was still relatively close to the entrance.

A Second Economic Crisis for Biden, but a Different First Response

The Biden team and its allies are confident that, if they succeed, the economy will be poised for a roaring rebound. Other policymakers and forecasters, including Jerome H. Powell, the Federal Reserve chair, have predicted a swift rebound once the virus is under control. “This is a huge break from past mistakes.”The Biden plan is not, to be clear, the exact plan that many economists, including liberal ones like Mr. Furman, would have chosen. Some conservative economists say the package spends far more than is necessary to fill what economists call the “output gap,” which is essentially the value of lost performance in the economy because of the recession. “A package this size is inadvisable,” said Michael R. Strain, an economist at the conservative American Enterprise Institute.

ET Live Updates: Police Investigating Whether Lawmakers Gave Rioters Tour of Capitol Before Siege The Capitol Police are looking into whether members of Congress inappropriately gave visitors access to the Capitol ahead of last week’s assault. But Mr. Lindell’s ability to walk into the Oval Office and meet with Mr. Trump underscored the type of conspiracy theorists who still appeal to Mr. Trump, so long as they are saying what he wants to hear. Everytown for Gun Safety is calling for a ban on firearms in state Capitol buildings, polling places and vote-counting sites. Mr. Trump immediately seized on the investigation, using it as evidence to his false and discredited theories of widespread voter fraud. Lawmakers hid under their desks from violent protesters after President Trump encouraged them during a rally to head to the Capitol.

According to a criminal complaint, Parler cooperated with the FBI and turned over the phone number, email address, IP address, and email of a user who made death threats against President Donald Trump and Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett. Parler, the since shut down social media app designed as a bastion of "free speech", recently cooperated with the FBI so the Department of Justice could charge a user with threatening to kill President Donald Trump and Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett. According to a probable cause filed by FBI Special Agent Isaac Frost, the FBI received a tip to investigate Parler user "Raizor99" for his posts advocating for "murder and terrorism." After further review, the FBI found that the user had posted several threats against the president, a Supreme Court justice, FBI officers, and prominent Trump-supporting lawyers Sidney Powell and Lin Wood. Evidence that from a probable cause statement shows that Parler turned over personal information from a user to the FBI in a case against Michael Reyes of Texas.

Parler is sharing information with the FBI on federal investigations into the Capitol riot. A sworn FBI affidavit shows that Parler gave information that helped FBI agents identify, locate, and arrest a Proud Boys supporter making threats on Parler. But the cooperation could have unusually significant consequences for Parler users who organized violence at the Capitol on January 6. Parler is sharing information with the FBI in connection with the Department of Justice's investigations into the violent riot at the US Capitol. Parler provided the phone number associated with the account, the affidavit says, and the FBI used it, and info from T-Mobile, to identify Florea.

Christopher Black/WHO/Handout via REUTERS“We are going into a second year of this, it could even be tougher given the transmission dynamics and some of the issues that we are seeing,” Mike Ryan, the WHO’s top emergencies official, said during an event on social media. The worldwide death toll is approaching 2 million people since the pandemic began, with 91.5 million people infected. “I worry that we will remain in this pattern of peak and trough and peak and trough, and we can do better,” Van Kerkhove said.
