    JERUSALEM, June 23 (Reuters) - Israel empowered health officials on Wednesday to quarantine anyone deemed to have been exposed to an especially infectious variant of COVID-19, even if they were previously vaccinated or recovered from the disease with presumed immunity.The decision followed a warning by Prime Minister Naftali Bennett on Tuesday over new outbreaks caused by the Delta variant, with daily infections rising after weeks of low plateau credited to Israel's record mass-vaccination drive.Under the updated Health Ministry directives, vaccinated or formerly infected people can be ordered to self-isolate for up to 14 days if authorities believe they may have...

    President Biden raised eyebrows Thursday in North Carolina with a bizarre statement in which he claimed that “Latinx” people are less likely to get vaccinated against the coronavirus because “they’re worried that they’ll be vaccinated and deported.” Biden traveled to Raleigh as part of a a nationwide “month of action” campaign meant to boost vaccination rates before the July 4 holiday. However, the president’s exhortation for people to get the shot was overshadowed by his strange aside, in which he also confused the Tuskegee Airmen — the heroic African American pilots of World War II — with the victims of...

    Associated Press via Yahoo News ^ | 06/24/2021 | CARLA K. JOHNSON and MIKE STOBBE
    Nearly all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. now are in people who weren’t vaccinated, a staggering demonstration of how effective the shots have been and an indication that deaths per day — now down to under 300 — could be practically zero if everyone eligible got the vaccine. An Associated Press analysis of available government data from May shows that “breakthrough” infections in fully vaccinated people accounted for fewer than 1,200 of more than 853,000 COVID-19 hospitalizations. That’s about 0.1%. And only about 150 of the more than 18,000 COVID-19 deaths in May were in fully vaccinated people. That translates...

    President Biden has been branded a racist after claiming Latinx Americans are afraid of getting vaccinated out of fear of deportation. Biden made his comments in a speech on Thursday in North Carolina where he toured a mobile vaccine unit in North Carolina. Speaking to a crowd mainly made up of African Americans and Latinos, President Biden was greeted with shouts of 'Uncle Joe' and 'We love you' when he made his remarks on the pandemic at the Green Road Community Center.

    President Joe Biden has urged state and local governments to use $350 billion in COVID-19 funding from the American Rescue Plan to fight crime by hiring new police officers. Biden pushed for the increase in police funding during a White House press conference with Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday. The president stressed that money already included in the legislation that he signed into law on March 11 could be used to help reduce gun violence amid the nation's recent surge in violent crimes.

    The death has sparked a review of building security. The man managed to climb an “outer architectural structure” on the front of the Hollenbeck station shortly after 6 p.m. Tuesday, then was able to access a small walkway leading to the tower, said Officer William Cooper, an LAPD spokesman. A witness then saw the man fall from the tower to the pavement below, Cooper said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The man was later identified as Jonathan Joseph Martinez of Los Angeles.

    Last summer, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases chief Anthony Fauci was reportedly sent mail containing white powder that "literally blew up in his face," Politico writes, per a preview of the new book Nightmare Scenario by Yasmeen Abutaleb and Damian Paletta. Fauci believed the mysterious white substance to be one of three things: a prank "to scare him;" anthrax, which would make him "seriously ill but which he could probably survive;" or ricin, which would make him a "dead duck." Luckily, chemical testing came back negative for both anthrax and ricin, but not before Fauci was hosed "down...

Wang's Mars roadmap consists of three stages for colonizing the Red Planet, with the first using robots to find possible sites for the base on Mars and building systems to source resources. Humans...

    Former Vice President Mike Pence reiterated at a speech at the Reagan Library on Thursday he did not have the constitutional authority to stop the count of the electoral votes on Jan. 6. “Now there are those in our party who believe that in my position as presiding officer over the joint session that I possess the authority to reject or return electoral votes certified by the states,” Pence said. "The Constitution provides the vice president with no such authority before the joint session of Congress." Some Republicans, including former President Trump, called for Pence to reject electoral votes on...
