The nuanced Kremlin reaction made clear that Russia was not rejecting the U.S. and NATO responses out of hand or closing the door to diplomacy. The Russian foreign ministry said the best way to reduce tensions was for NATO to withdraw forces from eastern Europe, but also sought to quash fears of an invasion. Russia is the world's second-largest oil producer, and the crisis over Ukraine has fanned fears that energy supplies to Europe will be disrupted. Ukrainian, Russian, German and French diplomats discussed the conflict in eastern Ukraine in Paris on Wednesday and agreed more talks should be held in Berlin in two weeks. He said Moscow believed Washington was preparing to deploy short and intermediate range missiles to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

But he said U.S. and NATO statements that Russia's main demands were unacceptable did not leave much room for optimism. The nuanced Kremlin reaction made clear that Russia was not rejecting the U.S. and NATO responses out of hand or closing the door to diplomacy. Russia denies planning to invade Ukraine but says it wants to enforce "red lines" to protect its own security. He has warned of an unspecified "military-technical response" - something defence analysts say could relate to missile deployments - if Russia's demands are ignored. Ermakov said Moscow believed Washington was preparing to deploy short and intermediate range missiles to Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

DIALOGUEIn Paris, diplomats from Russia, Ukraine, France and Germany held more than eight hours of talks on ending a separatist conflict in eastern Ukraine, part of the wider crisis between Moscow and Kyiv that risks becoming a full-scale war. 1/3 U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken speaks about Russia and Ukraine during a briefing at the State Department in Washington, U.S., January 26, 2022.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow, which has massed troops near Ukraine, would not rush to draw conclusions after Washington formally responded to Russian proposals for a redrawing of post-Cold War security arrangements in Europe. Describing tensions on the continent as reminiscent of the Cold War, Peskov said it would take time for Moscow to review Wednesday's response from Washington. But he said U.S. and NATO statements that Russia's main demands were unacceptable did not leave much room for optimism. Russian and Ukrainian dollar bonds, which have been hammered in recent weeks by the mounting tension, both rose in response to Peskov's comments. 1/4 A Russian army service member fires a howitzer during drills at the Kuzminsky range in the southern Rostov region, Russia January 26, 2022.

New York (CNN Business) A Manhattan restaurant where Sarah Palin was spotted dining indoors while unvaccinated over the weekend confirmed that the former Alaska governor returned to dine outdoors on Wednesday, just a few days after testing positive tor Covid. At issue are current local guidelines that advise people who tested positive to remain in isolation for five days after their positive test. "Our goal has always been to incentivize isolation for those testing positive for Covid and providing them multiple resources," a New York City Hall spokesperson said. Palin, who is in Manhattan for her defamation trial against the New York Times, tested positive for Covid-19, a federal judge presiding over her case said Monday, delaying the start of the trial. It's unclear what day Palin first tested positive.

I have schizophrenia, so I have to be proactive about my wellbeing and practice self-care. I don't eat out, I work out and test my blood pressure at home for free, and get plenty of rest. I monitor my own blood pressure so my doctor doesn't have toFor less than the cost of a $35 co-pay to my primary care physician, I bought an at-home blood pressure cuff because taking antipsychotics can also cause hypertension . I have saved hundreds of dollars over the years with this small self-care practice. Also, if my blood pressure started to trend high, I would know it quickly and alert my doctor instead of waiting for a scheduled appointment to discover the health risk.

The Federal's Reserve timing of interest rate rises doesn't matter, Howard Marks told CNBC Wednesday. "The only thing that matters is the general direction and the themes, in my opinion," the legendary investor said. The Fed has paved the way for at least four rate hikes this year, with the first set for March. In its long-awaited policy update Wednesday, the Fed paved the way for a bare minimum of four interest rate hikes this year. Higher interest rates make companies' future profits look less attractive, which weighs on equity prices.

(CNN) Once you get past the astonishing makeup and prosthetics, "Pam & Tommy" essentially functions as two miniseries in one, the first devoted to the central couple, and the latter to the hapless guy who turned them into a pioneering Internet sensation. The former works better, in a limited series that sprinkles social insight (if not quite enough) in with its salacious qualities and breezy nostalgia. When Lee fires him and stiffs him on payment, Gauthier decides to seek compensation and a measure of revenge by pilfering items from the property. Among them he finds the videotape, capitalizing upon his convenient ties to the porn industry through an unsavory producer (Nick Offerman) to try to wring every last buck out of its exposure. (In a particularly amusing moment, Gauthier rails against a guy selling bootleg copies in the Tower Records parking lot, as if there's no honor among literal thieves.)

A video showing a convoy of trucks has been widely miscaptioned in social media posts that have described it as showing truck drivers from South Carolina heading to join a protest convoy in Canada.

Claims on social media that mask mandates have triggered an over 350% surge in childhood speech development delays are missing context. Experts consulted by Reuters said there is as yet no significant evidence to confirm masks cause speech development delays in children. Claims reference a report published by The National Pulse, (archived here: archive.is/BlGpL ) with a headline that reads, “REPORT: Mask Mandates Causing Over 350% Surge In Childhood Speech Delays.” This headline. It says that although worries are valid, there is no evidence to suggest face masks "interfere with speech and language development or social communication." National experts in speech and child development say there is yet no concrete evidence to support claims that masks cause delays in speech and development in children.

There is no evidence that an Australian boy called Lachlan Leary was killed by a COVID-19 vaccine, contrary to claims on social media. In the original post, Leary explained how his son Lachlan became unwell with a fever after receiving the shot. When he began experiencing breathing difficulties, the boy was taken to Sydney’s Westmead Hospital in New South Wales, Leary wrote - but was later sent home. “Friday morning at 4am, we heard him yell out, he was on his bedroom floor, he then collapsed, he was not breathing,” the now-removed Facebook post read. Leary claimed that Lachlan died of a “massive heart attack” on his way to hospital, using it as warning against children being given the vaccine.

Social media users are claiming that COVID-19 case numbers are much higher than before there was a COVID-19 vaccine, suggesting that the vaccine has caused the high number of cases. Reuters Fact Check has previously debunked claims that the COVID-19 vaccine does not give the person receiving the vaccine a new COVID-19 infection (here), (here) . It is true that COVID-19 case numbers are at their highest, as seen in a graph by the CDC (here). A study published on Jan. 11, 2022 (here) found that the Omicron variant caused fewer and shorter hospitalizations overall, as discussed (here). COVID-19 case numbers are high due to the Omicron variant, not because the COVID-19 vaccine causes the virus.
