Jesse Benton worked as a campaign staffer for former Rep. Ron Paul, as well as Sens. In 2016, he was convicted of campaign finance crimes related to his role on the Ron Paul campaign. In an unsealed indictment, dated September 9, prosecutors allege Jesse Benton "conspired to illegally funnel thousands of dollars of foreign money from a Russian foreign national" into the campaign. In October 2016, Benton received a $100,000 wire transfer from the unnamed Russian national, the indictment states, promising him that he would get to "meet a celebrity" at a fundraiser in Philadelphia on September 22, 2016. The Russian national attended the fundraiser, according to the indictment, his travel to the United States facilitated by an alleged co-conspirator, Roy Douglas Wead, a conservative author.

At Shukette, the line between dips and nondips can be a fine one. You may be lukewarm about the ginger-scented meatballs of fresh albacore but compelled by the stiff bed of yogurt under them, salty with preserved lemons. For those crusts, Shukette has four kinds of bread, all baked or grilled or griddled to order. Shukette’s approach to Middle Eastern cooking — built around extremely fresh produce, laced with smoke, and profligate with herbs and spices — is overdue in New York. The city’s chefs, though, have been slow to take a modern approach to the cooking of the Mediterranean’s eastern and southern rims.

After his career as a major league outfielder wound down, Anthony Gose decided to give pitching a chance. The move seemed like a long shot, a bid to extend a career that was realistically probably over. On Monday, Gose made his major league pitching debut for Cleveland at age 31. Gose was a great pitcher in high school in Southern California, but chose outfield because he wanted to play every day. He wound up hitting .240 with almost no power, which wasn’t good enough for a major league outfielder.

As delivery start-ups race one another to be the speediest, Gopuff co-founder and co-CEO Yakir Gola said Tuesday that it has staying power to outlast rivals. He said the venture-backed company not only wants to get diapers, snacks and more to customers' doors quickly. He said it also wants to deliver a better customer experience and build a profitable business that can scale across the globe. Gopuff is part of an increasingly crowded field of start-ups that resemble an online version of convenience stores and grocers. Unlike other delivery companies, such as DoorDash and Instacart, GoPuff doesn't retrieve merchandise from retailers' stores.

Investigating Immune SystemsFor much of the pandemic, doctors could only guess why children's immune systems were so much more successful at rebuffing the coronavirus. That allows kids to immediately activate their innate immune system, releasing interferons that help shut down the virus before it can establish a foothold, Eils said. When innate immunity fails to control a virus, the body can fall back on the adaptive immune system, a second line of defense that adapts to each unique threat. While the adaptive immune system can be effective, it can sometimes cause more harm than good. And both children and adults who are sick with Covid tend to have fewer of these repair cells, Luban said.

The unanimous recommendation of boosters for a limited group of Americans was the second vote called by the Vaccine and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee, or VRBPAC, during its meeting Friday. Members overwhelmingly voted against that recommendation, citing concerns about the level of evidence showing the boosters are safe for younger people. People at high-risk of exposure at work, such as health care workers and teachers, will likely also be eligible for a booster dose. The panel's recommendation will now go to the FDA, which is not required to follow VRBPAC's vote, but usually does. “I have a serious concern about myocarditis and young people,” Dr. James Hildreth, CEO of Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, and a member of the advisory committee.

Following the advisory committee meeting, the booster question will go to a group of advisers to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which will take up the issue in a two-day meeting next week. The FDA advisory committee also raised questions about the safety of an additional dose, particularly in regard to the risk of myocarditis, a rare side effect that’s been seen primarily in males younger than 30. “I have a serious concern about myocarditis and young people,” Dr. James Hildreth, CEO of Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, and a member of the advisory committee.

An extremely rare official first-edition printed copy of the U.S. Constitution as adopted by delegates to the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia in 1787, which will auctioned off in mid-November 2021 by Sotheby’s in New York, is seen in this handout image provided by Sotheby’s. Sotheby's, announcing the upcoming sale of the document on the 234th anniversary of its signing by delegates to the Constitutional Convention, estimated its value at $15 million to $20 million. Copies from that first printing, bearing no signatures and believed to have originally numbered about 500, were also furnished to delegates of the Constitutional Convention itself. The Constitution's first printing is considerably rarer than even the first edition of the 1776 Declaration of Independence, Sotheby's said. "The Goldman Constitution ranks as one of the most rare and coveted historical documents that has ever come to auction," Selby Kiffer, senior specialist in Sotheby's books & manuscripts department, said in a statement.
