Some parents lobbied to refuse them admission; others urged tolerance for children not guilty for what they saw as the sins of their grandfather. Once in, Ms. Trump and Mr. Kushner tended to violate the unspoken rule of the Washington private-school world, that parents with heavy security details keep disruption to a minimum, four parents said. Three people, including two who were present, spoke about a birthday party Mr. Kushner decided to attend with his children. According to a person familiar with the discussions, talks faltered on the couple’s reluctance to answer basic questions, including when their children were last exposed to Mr. Trump. The family withdrew from the school on Oct. 19 and enrolled in another Jewish elementary school in the Washington suburb of Rockville, Md.

With hopes of an effective COVID-19 vaccine just around the corner, private firms say there is appetite again for digital health passports. Speculation around COVID-19 health passports was rife in the early days of the pandemic, but sidelined due to insufficient knowledge around the strength of immunity. As scientists race to develop a vaccine capable of immunizing the population from COVID-19, insiders at tech firms say there's "growing appetite" for health passports among industry and officials alike. While officials have emphasized the need for caution, the prospect of a COVID-19 vaccine rollout for 2021 has raised a new set of questions: Who will get it first, how will it be distributed, and when will life go back to normal? The original premise of health (or, as they were controversially called, "immunity") passports was to link an individual's digital ID to their COVID-19 test results.

The University of Oxford and AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine can be stored at normal fridge temperatures for at least six months. Unlike Pfizer and BioNTech's candidate, Oxford and AstraZeneca's vaccine doesn't have to be stored and transported at ultra-low temperatures. Moderna's vaccine can be transported and stored at fridge temperatures, but only for a month: Oxford and AstraZeneca's vaccine can last six months at these temperatures. For Moderna's vaccine to last this long, it has to be stored at minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit. The last potential advantage for the Oxford vaccine comes in manufacturing.

Cutting aid budget would hit UK influence, two former PMs say

FILE PHOTO: Britain's former Prime Ministers Tony Blair and David Cameron attend a memorial service for Lord Paddy Ashdown at Westminster Abbey, in London, Britain September 10, 2019. “Abandoning the 0.7 target for aid would be a moral, strategic and political mistake,” Cameron, prime minister from 2010 to 2016 and a member of Johnson’s Conservative Party, said. The two former leaders argued that any move to cut spending on aid would undermine Britain’s position when it hosts the G7 summit in 2021. The decision comes as the country embarks on a new future outside the European Union. Blair, a Labour prime minister from 1997 to 2007 who introduced the 0.7% target, said the spending had tackled disease, boosted education and helped to increase living standards across large swathes of Africa.

Elon Musk detailed a new type of train service in a low-pressure tube that would reach speeds up to 760 mph. Virgin Hyperloop is among the companies attempting to develop hyperloop technology, which they say will improve on existing trains. This pneumatic tube center at the New York office of Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Beane is shown in a 1955 photo. Pneumatic tubes were popularized in the 1800s, scholars say, as an alternative to ground transportation. So pneumatic tubes were often used between telegraph offices and key destinations such as stock exchanges, the scholars say.

Hong Kong (CNN Business) More than 500,000 Australians have signed a petition calling for an inquiry into the dominance of Rupert Murdoch's media empire. The petition to parliament was launched by former Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd a little over three weeks ago and closed on Wednesday. It calls for a Royal Commission — Australia's highest form of public inquiry — to "investigate threats to media diversity." "We are especially concerned that Australia's print media is overwhelmingly controlled by News Corporation, founded by Fox News billionaire Rupert Murdoch, with around two-thirds of daily newspaper readership," the petition said. "This power is routinely used to attack opponents in business and politics by blending editorial opinion with news reporting."

REUTERS/Matthew Childs/File Photo(Reuters) - Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage will relaunch the group as an anti-lockdown party called Reform UK in an attempt to fight anti-coronavirus measures imposed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s government. The Brexit Party was set up in early 2019 by Farage, whose years of campaigning against membership of the European Union played a major part in delivering the 2016 referendum in which the UK voted to leave the bloc. That is why we will campaign for Reform”, Farage and Tice wrote. The name reflects the ambition: Reform UK”, they added.
