    According to a federal official and a source familiar with the procedure, the US Food and Drug Administration is likely to approve Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 12 to 15 by next week, allowing many to get vaccines before the start of the next school year. The announcement comes a month after the organisation discovered that its shot, which is already approved for those aged 16 and up, still offered security for the younger generation. The federal official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to preview the FDA's decision, stated that the department planned to extend its emergency...

    Hall of Fame gymnastics coach Bela Karolyi and his wife, Martha, face fresh allegations of physical and psychological abuse of young female athletes dating to the 1960s in a newly published book, according to the Daily Mail. Romanian author Stejarel Olaru wrote in “Nadia si Securitatea” that Romanian gymnast Nadia Comaneci — the first gymnast to score a perfect 10 at the Olympics, in 1976 — is among the victims who were starved to the point of developing eating disorders, slapped, and denied medical treatment, according to the report. Comaneci was Bela Karolyi’s first prodigy and his gateway to defecting...

    GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – Teens in South Carolina ages 16 and over will be eligible to schedule an appointment to receive their COVID-19 vaccine starting Wednesday.

    “To them, it’s just a game, like ‘Grand Theft Auto,’?” Chicago Police Chief of Detectives Brendan Deenihan said in an interview. “They’re extremely young, terrorizing people, and a lot of them feel, ‘It’s just somebody’s car, it’s no big deal.” The Washington D.C. area experienced 345 carjackings in 2020 alone, compared to 142 the year before. The trend doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon though. So far, D.C. area police have recorded 46 carjackings in early February alone. Experts say that the rise in crime nationwide can be linked to the increase in unemployment nationwide. But the increase in...

    The U.S. government plans to use the downtown Dallas convention center to hold up to 3,000 immigrant teenagers as sharply higher numbers of border crossings have severely strained the current capacity to hold youths, according to a memo obtained by The Associated Press. The announcement comes amid comments from Texas Governor Gregg Abbott on March 9 who called the situation at the border an ongoing humanitarian crisis. “This crisis as a result of President Biden’s policies invites illegal immigration and is creating a humanitarian crisis for Texas,” said Gov. Abbott. “His administration is helping the cartels make money and grow...

    Kaye Watson is not a demanding parent intent of strictly imposing her will on her children. Instead, she tries to gently nudge them in the right direction. Watson comes from a family of music lovers. Not professional musicians, these are folks that just love listening to all kinds of music (though predominately traditional country) and singing along, sometimes to the top of their lungs. As she was home-schooling her two youngest boys a few years ago while living in Marissa, she wondered if the siblings would be interested in taking their musical intrigue to the next level, causing her to...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — White supremacists plotted to attack power stations in the southeastern U.S., and an Ohio teenager who allegedly shared the plan said he wanted the group to be “operational” on a fast-tracked timeline if President Donald Trump were to lose his re-election bid, the FBI alleges in an affidavit that was mistakenly unsealed. The teen was in a text group with more than a dozen people in the fall of 2019 when he introduced the idea of saving money to buy a ranch where they could participate in militant training, according to the affidavit, which was filed under...

I pray he is okay,” Atlanta City Council President Felicia Moore said Monday in a social media post, nearly 48 hours after yet another incident outside a local shopping facility. It’s not solely the harrowing footage that some find disquieting. It’s not only the...

    At the end of October, a 73-year-old man was beaten so badly by a group of teenagers in the Dutch city of Arnhem that he later died of his injuries. Dutch police say it’s the latest and most serious example of “pedophile hunting,” which is sweeping the country. According to local police, the man, who was a retired teacher, was in an online chatroom where he agreed to meet a 15-year-old boy for sex. The man knew the boy was a minor, authorities say, but there was no evidence that he’d had past sexual contact with underage boys. The man...
