Mayorkas will be the first Latino and first immigrant to head the Department of Homeland Security, if confirmed by the Senate. Much of Trump’s immigration policy was the work of his adviser Stephen Miller, who cited and promoted white nationalist beliefs in emails leaked to the Southern Poverty Law Center last year. This summer, the General Accounting Office found that Chad Wolf, acting secretary of DHS, was not legally qualified to hold his job. Mayorkas became DHS deputy secretary in 2013, after Obama had revised his deportation policy and authorized DACA. Mayorkas went through the Senate confirmation process when he was nominated for DHS deputy secretary and also to head Citizenship and Immigration Services.

A man showed signs of a heart attack after swallowing a battery, doctors reported Monday in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. An X-ray revealed the object, where it appeared to be stuck in the man’s stomach. Oddly, the EKG pattern was similar to one that’s commonly seen when someone is having a heart attack. However, the man had no other heart attack symptoms, including chest pain, and other test results showed no signs of any heart issues. Still, "swallowing batteries is really dangerous — particularly in kids — but there's not really a whole lot of cardiac things that we worry about," Laffin said.

REUTERS/Christopher Aluka BerryNEW YORK (Reuters Breakingviews) - In some ways, Janet Yellen is a safe choice as Treasury secretary. Yet her ability to evolve means she could prove a surprisingly bold pick if circumstances require it. While she ran the Fed, the U.S. unemployment rate fell around 2.5 percentage points, from over 6.5% in early 2014. In that regard, the new Yellen looks different from the old one. The only other former Fed chair to make the move to Treasury secretary was G. William Miller, appointed by then-President Jimmy Carter.

The dollar index was last up 0.05% at 92.366, after earlier dropping to 92.013, the lowest since Sept. 1. It is hovering just above technical support around 92, a conclusive break below which could usher in new weakness, analysts said. Analysts at Brown Brothers Harriman said that if the index breaks its September low, there is little support until its low from February 2018. The Reuters dollar index showed the greenback falling to a more than two-year low of 91.737 on Sept. 1. Based on the Reuters dollar index, the next target for the euro is likely its September high near $1.2010, followed by the February 2018 high of $1.2555, Brown Brothers Harriman said.

John Heilemann and John Battelle's news startup The Recount is expanding its coverage from politics to areas like technology and culture as it looks to grow its short-form video journalism. Last year, veteran media entrepreneurs John Heilemann and John Battelle launched a video startup called The Recount. Its quick takes on politics have amassed more than 485 million video views this year. Wilson, an investor as well as cofounder, told Business Insider earlier that he thought The Recount could be a $200 million business in seven years. In his new role, Battelle plans to meet with advertisers, media execs, and execs at platforms to talk about new distribution models for The Recount.

The dollar index was last up 0.18% at 92.482, after earlier dropping to 92.013, the lowest since Sept. 1. A conclusive break on the dollar index below support at around 92 could usher in new weakness, analysts said. Many analysts see the dollar as likely to underperform next year when global growth is expected to improve as vaccines against the novel coronavirus are rolled out. “That spells dollar weakness for us given the dollar’s countercyclical characteristics,” said Vassili Serebriakov, an FX strategist at UBS in New York. The dollar index dipped slightly after the Wall Street Journal reported that U.S. President-elect Joe Biden plans to nominate former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen to become the next Treasury Secretary.

"I use individual characteristics — say, one bear has a nick in its ear or a scar on the nose," she said. Clapham teamed up with two Silicon Valley-based tech workers and together they created BearID , which uses facial-recognition software to monitor grizzly bears. So far, the project has used AI to recognize 132 of the animals individually. Clapham said she has more images of some bears than others, so her team is trying to get more of the bears that are less represented in the dataset. They're considering how BearID could go beyond bears to other animals as well.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with a Taliban delegation hours after mortar shells slammed into different parts of Afghanistan's capital, Kabul, on Saturday, killing at least eight people. The mortar barrage came as Pompeo was preparing to meet with representatives of the Afghan government and the Taliban, who are holding talks in the Arabian Gulf nation of Qatar, though progress has been slow. Abdullah Abdullah, the Afghan government's chief negotiator in peace talks, condemned Saturday's attack in a tweet calling it a "cowardly" act. Members of Taliban's peace negotiation team met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the Qatari capital Doha, on Saturday.

Oil versus climate change: The economics of drilling in the Arctic

Those people are at the center of the controversy over drilling for oil in the Arctic. The Trump administration is now starting the formal process of selling leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil companies, according to the New York Times. The move comes after the Trump administration opened the refuge for oil drilling in August 2020. "The Arctic provides the entire world with climate stabilization, and in the absence of that, we may well see changing growing seasons, more hurricanes, more droughts and more unstable climate," O'Garra told CNBC. Watch the video above to learn about how the Arctic is valued, and how the potential for more oil drilling may impact the region.

A person who tests negative one day might turn positive just a day later, or even an hour later. People can spread the virus in the days before they first start feeling ill, and can also spread the virus even if they never develop symptoms. “The challenge then for the individual is that a negative test today does not mean that a person will be negative tomorrow or the day after that,” said Natalie Dean, an assistant professor of biostatistics at the University of Florida. In an informal survey of 670 epidemiologists, just 6 percent said that if they recently tested negative for the virus, they would be comfortable spending time indoors with others without precautions. And a full 64 percent said that even if they tested negative, they would not be comfortable spending time indoors with people they don’t live with.

ZURICH (Reuters) - Swiss doctors have urged those vulnerable to COVID-19 complications to record their wishes for end-of-life care in advance to help ease pressure on intensive care units, drawing criticism from an advocacy group. Nobody should face pressure, but refraining from talking with them may actually prevent them from getting treatment that matches their wishes, she said. In Switzerland, COVID-19 numbers have exploded during the second infection wave, rising from 100,000 weeks ago to more than 290,000 cases on Friday, when 4,946 new infections were recorded. So far, the system is stretched thin, but holding up, with spare ICU capacity in much of the country, official data shows. “We are now under the 600 mark of hospitalised COVID patients,” Bertrand Levrat, director of the Geneva University Hospital, told Reuters.

U.S. Considers Moving Forces Out of Somalia

The Trump administration is considering a plan to pull hundreds of U.S. troops out of Somalia, reposition them in neighboring countries and shift the focus of their mission from training Somali government forces to directly combatting the al-Shabaab militant group. The roughly 700 troops stationed in Somalia would move to bases in Kenya and Djibouti and travel to Somalia to conduct shorter counterterrorism missions, primarily against al-Shabaab, a jihadist group allied with al Qaeda. Mr. Esper favored drawing down U.S. forces operating in the volatile Sahel region of West Africa while maintaining the American presence in Somalia, according to a senior U.S. official. It wasn’t known whether Mr. Miller has formally signed off on the change, but the troops could be moved as soon as early next year, defense officials said. Pentagon officials said that while there are ongoing conversations, “no DoD decisions have been made” about the force posture on the African continent, a spokesman said.

Dusty Miller, a special forces medic who testified at the inquiry, told the Australian Broadcasting Corp that hearing the country’s defence chief publicly confirm his claims was “complete vindication”. Prime Minister Scott Morrison warned earlier that the report would be troubling for Australia and its military but has not commented since its publication. Overnight, the office of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said on Twitter that Morrison had “expressed his deepest sorrow” over the allegations.
