Fifty-six percent of travelers told Discover they'll use contactless payment methods more often while on trips this year. Most news about travel may have focused on health and safety since the pandemic hit over a year ago. However, cost and booking flexibility are now even more top of mind for Americans looking to finally get away again, according to Discover Financial Services. Additionally, 87% of those surveyed said cost was an important factor in booking, and 86% cited flexibility of cancellation policies. The survey also addressed which Americans are traveling and why (see chart below).

LaFranchi told the local outlet St. George News that he moved mainly to be closer to family and take advantage of obvious cost-of-living differences. "In St. George, they're $900." Every listed property in and around St. George is attracting multiple over-asking bids, Larkin said.

Interest in travel is picking up as the pandemic winds down, and cooped-up Americans are itching to hit the road again, two recent surveys have found. "Both Florida and Nevada no longer have travel restrictions for visitors and California anticipates its restrictions will soon lift, too," he said. "All of these destinations enjoy warm summer weather and have plenty of activities for people to enjoy after a quiet year." Crossey said he expects to see Americans continue to travel in their own backyard throughout 2021, and anticipates "a resurgence in foreign trips as soon as international travel restrictions relax and popular European destinations reopen." All but L.A. and the Big Apple, meanwhile, made's own list of top 10 destination searches for summer travel, which also featured seaside spots such as Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Ocean City, Maryland.

But a closer look reveals NFTs are no more than a pump-and-dump scheme designed to make a few crypto insiders rich. Beeple NFTs were being pumped by crypto bros months beforehand, only to culminate in a large sale that brought a media storm to NFTs and the world's attention to a graphic artist who few people previously had ever heard of. The Singapore native had been anonymously bidding up the price of Beeple NFTs starting in October. And he gave 2% of the B20 token supply — an index fund representing the value of those NFTs — back to Beeple. Similarly, buyers of NFTs will be left holding the bag, when people realize what people were convinced were collectibles, are better off being disposables.

That is one of the region's many ways of confronting a 21st century Colorado River with significantly less water than it had a century ago. "The allegory is built into the city," Ross said. Much of the West is mired in drought, with New Mexico, Arizona and Nevada among the hardest-hit states. While it's easy to imagine that the drought spells apocalypse, experts say what prolonged drought really requires is the appropriate response and a willingness to adapt. Irrigated agriculture consumes 74 percent of the state's water supply.

After decades as one of Britain’s most-read tabloids, Rupert Murdoch’s The Sun newspaper has had its value written down to zero, financial accounts filed on Thursday said. Annual accounts for News Group Newspapers, which is owned by News UK, part of Mr. Murdoch’s News Corp, also showed the company lost more than 200 million pounds in the fiscal year that ended June 2020. News Group Newspapers owns The Sun, The Sun on Sunday and The Sun’s website. A tabloid known for its conservative politics and sensational headlines, The Sun is the second-most read newspaper in Britain, after The Daily Mail. Because of the decline in print advertising and lost circulation, the company’s “publishing rights and titles” were written down with an impairment charge of £84 million.

A Chicago police officer was arrested on suspicion of participating in the January 6 Capitol riots. Karol Chwiesiuk, 29, has been a member of the Chicago Police Department since December 2018. Chwiesiuk is a two-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department and worked in the Harrison District of Chicago, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Court filings show the FBI first identified Chwiesiuk after the "FBI learned that a device" associated with Chwiesiuk entered the Capitol on January 6. After interviewing the people Chwiesiuk texted inside the Capitol, the FBI found texts from Chwiesiuk on January 3 saying how he was "busy planning how to f--k up some commies."

gives the pair an opportunity — and incentive — to work toward common ground as Johnson is eager for trade agreements. Johnson, until recently, was so unwaveringly close to Trump that it would seem hard for this not to color his relations with Biden. Back in 2019, after Johnson's Conservative Party won a majority in Parliament, Biden called the new British prime minister a "physical and emotional clone" of Trump. So Biden should be cultivating his relationship with Macron as carefully as the one with Johnson. These relationships across the ocean require constant reassurance, particularly in the wake of the four years of the Trump administration.

According to Tobin, there is no good evidence to make this suggestion when referring to “typical behaviour” in relation to topical sunscreen. She said: “Our skin produces Vitamin D when it is when it is exposed to UV rays from the sun, which helps build and maintain strong bones. But there is a balance to be struck, as too much exposure to UV radiation can also cause skin cancer. Ultimately, skin cancer is “a serious threat” to health, added Tobin, who said this was especially true for basal cell or squamous cell carcinomas and the “often deadly” invasive melanoma. There is no evidence that sunscreen is more harmful than overexposure to the sun.
