    Greenhouse gases in the atmosphere hit a record high last year despite temporary declines during the pandemic. Greenhouse gas concentrations grew at a faster pace than the annual average from 2011 through 2020, according to the World Meteorological Organization's (WMO) Greenhouse Gas Bulletin published Monday. Specifically, levels of carbon dioxide, the most important greenhouse gas, surged to 149 percent of the pre-industrial level or the levels before 1750, when humans “started disrupting Earth’s natural equilibrium.”

    A record number of container ships are stuck waiting to enter California’s two largest ports as labor shortages and COVID-19 disruptions continue to roil a supply chain that’s being pushed to its limits ahead of the busy holiday shopping season. A total of 46 freight ships are at anchor or in a drift area waiting to enter the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the Marine Exchange of Southern California, which operates the Vessel Traffic Service for those two ports, reported late Monday evening. “Trend at anchor and in drift areas is essentially steady next 3 days,” the group...

    Pi has been calculated to an astonishing 62.8 trillion figures by a team of Swiss scientists who spent 108 days working it up - 3.5 times as fast as the previous record. The previous record was calculated to 50 trillion figures, and was set in 2020, said experts from Graubuenden University of Applied Sciences in Chur, Switzerland. Researchers haven't revealed the exact numbers involved in the extra 12.8 trillion digits, as they are waiting on the Guinness Book of Records to certify their achievement, but say the final 10 digits they discovered are '7817924262'. The number π (pi) is a...

    Less than six months into a tenure bogged down by the coronavirus pandemic, soaring gun violence and a crisis at the southern border, President Joe Biden has already spent more weekends away from the White House than any of his modern predecessors at the same point in their term. Speaking with CNN under the condition of anonymity, a source familiar with the president's thinking said Biden sees the White House 'more like a Monday-through-Friday kind of place.' The building that was once home to nearly all of Biden's predecessors, including his former boss President Barack Obama, is now more like...

    The growth of small businesses in the U.S. was held back in April because small businesses could not find enough workers, the National Federation of Independent Businesss said Tuesday. “Small business owners are seeing a growth in sales but are stunted by not having enough workers,” said NFIB Chief Economist Bill Dunkelberg. “Finding qualified employees remains the biggest challenge for small businesses and is slowing economic growth. Owners are raising compensation, offering bonuses and benefits to attract the right employees.”

    Young people are far less susceptible to both Covid-19 infections as well as serious symptoms. Healthy people, such as track and field stars, are also considered to be safer than most. Being outside away from others is a surefire way to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Why, then, did Oregon force high school junior track star Maggie Williams to wear a face mask while competing?It’s an asinine policy that has thankfully been reconsidered, but only after Williams passed out at the finish line of a record-breaking race.Oregon high school junior breaks 800-meter school record and falls face-first at finish line...

    Federal agents on Thursday raided one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of ghost-gun parts, a sign that federal law enforcement is cracking down on kits that allow people to make weapons at home. The raid target, Nevada-based Polymer80, is suspected of illegally manufacturing and distributing firearms, failing to pay taxes, shipping guns across state lines and failing to conduct background investigations, according to an application for a search warrant unsealed Thursday after the raid took place. The probe focuses on Polymer80’s “Buy Build Shoot Kit,” which includes the parts to build a “ghost” handgun. The kit, which Polymer80 sells online,...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says President Donald Trump's claims on Fauci's stance on masks were "taken out of context" at Tuesday's presidential debate. During the debate Trump claimed Fauci initially said "masks are not good. Then he changed his mind." When Democratic nominee Joe Biden said if all Americans wore masks, and social-distanced between now and January, 100,000 lives could be saved, Trump responded, "Dr. Fauci said the opposite

    The Florida Department of Health on Sunday reported 15,299 new Wuhan coronavirus cases. This is the largest number of cases reported in a single day.

In total, 18,271 people were hospitalized as a result of the virus. As of now, 2,576,813 people have been tested for the Wuhan coronavirus. That puts the Sunshine State's infection...
