A midwife from a maternity unit tells us why she and over thirty of her colleagues are refusing to have the Covid jab. We hear from the Royal College of Nursing who want the Government to pause the vaccine mandate for NHS staff immediately because of the threat to an already understaffed NHS. And we speak to Professor Ian Jones, a Virologist at the University of Reading about the science of infection and transmission. Almost 300 years after the Witchcraft Acts were repealed, a bill has been bought forward in the Scottish parliament to pardon those convicted. This comes after a two-year campaign to clear the names of nearly 4,000 people accused of witchcraft. We are joined by Zoe Venditozzi, co-founder of the campaign, and Marion Gibson, Professor of Renaissance and Magical Literatures at the University of Essex. Helen Pankhurst, the great-granddaughter of Suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst, talks about the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill which the House of Lords will debate on Monday. Reflecting on historical and global parallels, she talks about the role of protest in the fight for equality. Skin issues in adolescence can shape lives. We speak to Dr Tess McPherson, the current president of the British Society of Paediatric and Adolescent Dermatology, and Maia Grey, an acne positivity blogger who has lived with acne since her early teens. We are joined by British actor Adjoa Andoh and the award-winning British composer Julie Cooper, who have collaborated on the title track of a new album called Continuum. Julie wrote the music and Adjoa responded with a poem called "Hold out the Heart", capturing the emotions of the pandemic.

This is Covid 411, the latest on Omicron and other COVID variants, and new hotspots for January 11th, 2022.Free tests are coming for American citizens, perhaps just in time for you to not need them. Starting Saturday, private health insurers must cover up to eight home COVID tests per month for people on their plans. Everyone else can submit receipts for reimbursement. This depends on your ability to find COVID tests. Later this month, the government is launching a website to start making 500 million at-home tests available via mail. We all kinda figured out this was true, but it's still a little shocking to hear the Director of the CDC admit it. She said for the first time on CNN the vaccines are no longer effective at preventing transmission of the virus. And not just Omicron, for Delta as well. She said the vaccines are doing very well however protecting against serious illness and death.A new reason to bless people who sneeze. An Imperial College London Study found that high levels of T-cells from the common cold can protect against COVID. A reminder…the common cold is a coronavirus. The findings could lead to more effective vaccines. The study did not say how long protection from these T-cells lasts.Hospitals around the U.S. are letting more and more nurses and other workers currently infected with the coronavirus stay on the job. That's if they have only mild symptoms, or none. It's a way to cope with staffing shortages. That doesn't completely go against the CDC, which says asymptomatic health care workers can go back to work after seven days, but it can be sooner if there are staffing shortages. Is the Deltacron variant real or a myth like the Loch Ness Monster? Our apologies if you believe in Nessie. Health experts are leaning on the side of dismissing reports of a fusion of Delta and Omicron, saying it's probably just an error during genetic sequencing, specifically, the "lab contamination of Omicron fragments in a Delta specimen."In the United States, cases were up 216%, deaths are up 17%, and hospitalizations are up 83% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending up since December 14. The five states that had the most daily deaths per 100,000 are Delaware, Wyoming, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.There are 18,945,427 active cases in the United States.The five areas with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: The U.S. Virgin Islands 858%. Puerto Rico 429%, Louisiana 364%. Florida 300%. And Washington, DC 221%. The top 10 areas with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Miami-Dade, FL.

There have been at least 839,372 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related.The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont at 77.9%, Rhode Island at 77.3%, and Maine at 76.8%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are Wyoming at 47.7%, Mississippi at 48%, and Alabama at 48.2%.

Three years ago, BBC radio broadcaster Helena Merriman received a shock diagnosis related to hearing loss after giving birth to her son. This prompted her to explore how people handle life-changing news about their health in a new radio series called Room 5 that airs on Radio 4 this week. Helena joins Emma to discuss the power of resilience. One of the first female bus drivers in the UK says she is fighting to keep her job after a new bus design left her unable to reach the pedals. Emma speaks to Tracey Scholes from Manchester who says that because of her height - five feet - she can no longer drive the new buses safely. The bus company involved say other staff of a similar height to Tracey are able to drive the vehicles safely. New figures from the Office of National Statistics show that an estimated 1.3 million people in the UK have "long Covid" – defined as symptoms lasting more than four weeks. We know that women are more likely to be affected by long Covid, and that it can also occur in children. Dr Nisreen Alwan is Associate Professor in Public Health at the University of Southampton. In Sudan, thousands of people have again taken to the streets of the capital, Khartoum, to protest against military rule, following the resignation of Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok. Reports from medics on the ground say more than 50 people have lost their lives since a military coup took place in October last year. For several years, there has been continued unrest in the country, and headlines around the world have shown women at the forefront of the revolution and pro-democracy movement - but is that the full story? And how are things for women there now? Raga Makawi, a Sudanese democracy activist and editor at African Arguments and Will Ross, the BBC's Africa Editor join Emma. Almost 300 years after the Witchcraft Acts were repealed, a bill has been bought forward in the Scottish parliament to pardon those convicted. This comes after a two-year campaign to clear the names of nearly 4,000 people accused of witchcraft, of whom well over half were executed. Zoe Venditozzi co-founded the campaign and co-hosts the Witches of Scotland podcast. Marion Gibson is Professor of Renaissance and Magical Literatures at the University of Essex and author of Witchcraft: the basics.

This is Covid 411, the latest on Omicron and other COVID variants, and new hotspots for January 10th, 2022.COVID cases might be beginning to slow down. Looking just at New York, for the first time since mid-December, hospitalizations decreased by almost 100 patients Saturday. The daily percentage of new positive cases declined slightly for the third day in a row. This mirrors the trajectory in South Africa, which was a large spike, followed by a steep decline. No steep decline yet in the U.S. but the numbers look promising. The director of the CDC clarified the number of COVID hospitalizations among children. Yes, they're rising during this surge, but it's still not nearly the levels seen for older Americans. She also said there are actually about 3,500 children with COVID being treated in hospitals, correcting misinformation from a Supreme Court justice that there are 100,000.Omicron is mostly mild, but it is not risk-free. Israel is seeing its first case of heart inflammation linked to an Omicron infection. A 43-year-old man who was fully vaccinated and boosted was infected and is being treated for myocarditis in intensive care. Other variants have been known to cause it and in very rare cases, it's shown up in young men after getting an mRNA vaccine.In one of the most cooperative vaccine states, California, uptake of booster shots isn't very impressive. In some counties it's as low as 23%. The state average is 38% but some high population counties including Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Diego, and San Bernadino are all lagging well behind that number. If you're having trouble finding a COVID test, try China. It began mass testing of all, that's right all, 14 million residents of the city of Tianjin. This after 20 people tested positive. The city is near Beijing where the Winter Olympics start February 4. Testing will get done in just two days. In the United States, cases were up 215%, deaths are up 16%, and hospitalizations are up 80% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending up since December 14. The five states that had the most daily deaths per 100,000 are Delaware, Wyoming, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Michigan.There are now over 18 million active cases in the United States, at 18,146,166.The five areas with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: The U.S. Virgin Islands 785%.

This is Covid 411, the latest on Omicron and other COVID variants, and new hotspots for January 7th, 2022.As with previous variants, Omicron is sidelining people we really need. More than 800 Los Angeles city police and fire personnel have been sidelined, which is adding to 911 response times. There's also the absent health care workers and teachers. One in six of San Francisco's 3,600 teachers were out Thursday. Administrators and substitutes are stepping in but there's not enough teachers for every classroom.Japan has asked U.S. military members stationed there to stay on their bases. It's not clear if a base curfew will be issued. Some officials are blaming them for the alarming rise of cases in Okinawa and Iwakuni where Americans have a large presence.Africa's top public health official said severe lockdowns aren't the best way to contain COVID anymore. He praised South Africa for not locking down when responding to the Omicron outbreak, saying, “We're very encouraged with what we saw in South Africa during this period where they look at the data in terms of severity of infections.” Less than 10% of Africa's population has been fully vaccinated.Three popular tourist destinations are now requiring visitors not just have proof of full vaccination, but boosters as well. On Maui, you'll need one to dine inside or work out at a gym. France has a booster requirement for all tourists 18 and up. And the Netherlands announced the only vaccine certificates they'll accept are those that show a booster dose on it. And if you're going to Hong Kong, you aren't going to Disneyland most of this month. It'll be closed from January 7 to the 20th. The park said the closure was "required by the government and health authorities in line with prevention efforts taking place across Hong Kong." This marks the fourth time the park has been closed during the pandemic.In the United States, cases were up 247%, deaths are down 3%, and hospitalizations are up 58% over 14 days.

This is Covid 411, the latest on Omicron and other COVID variants, and new hotspots for January 6th, 2022. So what's really going on at hospitals? We hear Omicron is mild yet hospitalizations are so high systems are breaking. Mostly, the pain is from staff shortages, a combination of self-imposed shortages due to vaccine mandates and staff home sick with Omicron. ERs are getting crushed with people trying to just get tested for COVID. And two-thirds of patients in some places, test positive while in the hospital for something else. Hospitals are saying COVID patients aren't as sick as in previous surges, ICUs aren't as full, and ventilators aren't needed as much. In Chicago it's a win for teachers and additional losses for students and their parents. Classes were cancelled for a second day after failure to satisfy the teacher's union around safety protocols. The union wants remote learning, but Chicago's public school leaders say that didn't work and schools can safely stay open with protocols in place. It certainly won't help boost booster getting, but U.S. health officials said they are not changing the definition of “fully vaccinated” to include boosters. They're just urging Americans to stay “up to date” on their protection by getting booster shots. That means federal vaccination mandates for travel or employment won't require a booster. The number of Omicron breakthrough infections no longer supports the notion this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated, but France's President went on the attack anyway. Using French vulgarity, Emmanuel Macron said his strategy is to keep pressuring the unvaccinated. Lawmakers are currently debating whether or not to ban the unvaccinated from leisure activities like eating out. And the Grammy goes to…we'll have to wait til later to find out. The 64th annual industry self-celebration event is postponed due to Omicron. It was going to be January 31, now there's no telling when it will happen. Also, the famed Sundance Film Festival is moving all its in-person events in Utah online. In the United States, cases were up 254%, deaths are down 3%, and hospitalizations are up 51% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending up since December 14. The five states that had the most daily deaths per 100,000 are Wyoming, Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire.

This is Covid 411, the latest on Omicron and other COVID variants, and new hotspots for January 5th, 2022.The U.S. added more than 1 million people to its case count Monday that encompasses a surge in infections over the holidays. It doesn't really count as a single day record since much of the reporting was delayed and came in all at once. But on the other hand, many are testing at home and don't report to authorities, which means the numbers are probably being underestimated if anything. The CDC says Omicron now makes up around 95.4% of new cases. Speaking of those at home tests, you may not be able to find any. But if you do, expect to pay more. Walmart, Kroger and Amazon had been selling them "at cost" as part of a deal with the White House. Now the kits will go up to $23.99 for a package of two. And most places still have limits on how many you can buy. Things are getting very rough for residents of the Chinese city of Xi'an who are under a strict zero tolerance coronavirus lockdown. Business owners are suffering and many of the 13 million residents have started having trouble finding food as they are largely confined to their homes. And now another city, Yuzhou, has been placed under a similar lockdown after three asymptomatic cases were discovered.You have enough problems without your body attacking itself, but a new study of 177 health care workers indicates those who recover from even mild cases often have elevated autoantibody levels that can cause the body to mistakenly attack itself months later. Gender also appears to make a difference, with males carrying the risk of autoimmune activation after symptomatic COVID, and females carrying the risk after asymptomatic exposure.Add this to the list of things that no, you can't do that. A teacher in New York was arrested New Year's Eve for allegedly giving a vaccine injection at her house to a 17-year-old boy. And no, his mother did not give her permission. While the teacher was a science teacher, she was in no way authorized to administer vaccines.In the United States, cases were up 254%, deaths are down 3%, and hospitalizations are up 43% over 14 days.

Another Covid variant has reportedly been found in France. The mutant strain has 46 mutations. About 12 cases have been spotted near Marseille, with the first linked to travel to Cameroon. But there's little sign it's outcompeting the dominant Omicron variant, which now makes up more than 60% of cases in France, and the strain has not spread rapidly since its discovery December 10.It's a little chaotic out there as schools and workplaces try to figure out what to do now that the holidays are over. For workplaces, the problem is so many people out sick with COVID they simply can't open or get the work done. For schools it's the now familiar debate between in person and remote learning. Some schools are doing neither because too many teachers and substitutes are sick. It's booster time for kids as young as 12. The FDA approved Pfizer's booster for that age whereas before, it was only available to those 16 and above. Now a CDC panel has to decide later this week whether or not to recommend the boosters but when has the CDC ever not recommended vaccine shots? Kids should be able to get the booster as early as five months after their last dose.We can argue as to whether or not they're essential personnel, but COVID has a lot of people in Congress sick as well. It's been recommended they go to a “maximal telework posture.” The seven-day average rate of infection at the Capitol's testing center went from less than 1% to more than 13%. Breakthrough cases have not led to any deaths or hospitalizations among lawmakers or their staff.If you think your Starbucks barista is more essential than Congress, the company's U.S. workers must now be fully vaccinated by February 9 or face weekly testing, and hopefully they'll get the names right on the tests. Starbucks' 228,000 U.S. employees must disclose their vaccination status by January 10. In the United States, cases were up 238%, deaths are down 3%, and hospitalizations are up 41% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending up since December 14.

This is Covid 411, the latest on Omicron and other COVID variants, and new hotspots for January 4th, 2022.Another Covid variant has reportedly been found in France. The mutant strain has 46 mutations. About 12 cases have been spotted near Marseille, with the first linked to travel to Cameroon. But there's little sign it's outcompeting the dominant Omicron variant, which now makes up more than 60% of cases in France, and the strain has not spread rapidly since its discovery December 10.It's a little chaotic out there as schools and workplaces try to figure out what to do now that the holidays are over. For workplaces, the problem is so many people out sick with COVID they simply can't open or get the work done. For schools it's the now familiar debate between in person and remote learning. Some schools are doing neither because too many teachers and substitutes are sick. It's booster time for kids as young as 12. The FDA approved Pfizer's booster for that age whereas before, it was only available to those 16 and above. Now a CDC panel has to decide later this week whether or not to recommend the boosters but when has the CDC ever not recommended vaccine shots? Kids should be able to get the booster as early as five months after their last dose.We can argue as to whether or not they're essential personnel, but COVID has a lot of people in Congress sick as well. It's been recommended they go to a “maximal telework posture.” The seven-day average rate of infection at the Capitol's testing center went from less than 1% to more than 13%. Breakthrough cases have not led to any deaths or hospitalizations among lawmakers or their staff.If you think your Starbucks barista is more essential than Congress, the company's U.S. workers must now be fully vaccinated by February 9 or face weekly testing, and hopefully they'll get the names right on the tests. Starbucks' 228,000 U.S. employees must disclose their vaccination status by January 10. In the United States, cases were up 238%, deaths are down 3%, and hospitalizations are up 41% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending up since December 14. The five states that had the most daily deaths per 100,000 are Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Arizona.There are now over 14 million active cases in the United States, at 14,517,726.The five areas with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Puerto Rico 617%, Louisiana 313%, Washington, DC 252%, the Virgin Islands 235%, and Florida 222%.

Top federal health officials in the U.S. are now looking to add a negative test along with its five-day isolation restrictions for Americans who test positive but have no symptoms. You keeping up with all this? The CDC is adding the test not because of science, but due to pushback on its new recommendations of last week that isolation be shortened from 10 days to five.Does anyone want to be in charge anymore? The US President said recently he doesn't believe there's a federal answer to COVID and the states should handle it. Now the Governor of Colorado is saying there won't be any state restrictions and local municipalities should handle it. The state has had a nearly 250% increase in infections over the last two weeks. It may not be the most pleasant way to measure COVID but unlike at home tests, it sure is readily available, and more reliable. Health departments are increasingly using sewage samples for some coronavirus data that helps them better prepare. And bonus, you can also measure things like obesity, opioids, even polio. Coronavirus levels in those sewage samples across the country are higher now than at any point in the pandemic. Well now we're just making up words. It's been confirmed you can catch COVID and the flu at the same time, and that's being called “flurona.” A pregnant woman in Israel is believed to be the world's first case of flurona. Her symptoms are mild, but the message from health officials is…get COVID vaccines, get a COVID booster, and get the flu shot too. You know how to discredit conspiracy theories? Don't do exactly what the conspiracy theory says is going to happen. A tech start-up has a microchip that's to be implanted in people's arms so they can be scanned for their vaccination status. The managing director says he hears the criticism, but the technology is here to stay, like it or not.In the United States, cases were up 202%, deaths are down 4%, and hospitalizations are up 30% over 14 days.

Lots of concern about the number of children being hospitalized with COVID, and most of them aren't vaccinated. The CDC says during the week of Dec. 22-28, an average 378 children 17 and under were admitted daily with the coronavirus, a 66% increase from the prior week. While it's not being reported whether these cases are Delta or Omicron, the kids do seem less sick than those who came in during the Delta surge. As expected, Israel has approved dose number four the vaccine for the most vulnerable, becoming one of the first countries to do so. The Health Ministry said it will watch the data to see if the fourth shot needs to be expanded out to even more people.Germany is dropping the requirement that travelers from Britain quarantine and provide negative COVID tests January 4. And in South Africa, they've lifted a midnight to 4 a.m. curfew, saying they believe the country's passed the peak of its Omicron-driven fourth wave of the virus. South Africa's currently at the lowest of its five-stage COVID alert levels.Good news for you Johnson & Johnson recipients, two reports have shown those who get booster doses of that vaccine are well protected against severe disease and hospitalization from Omicron. One study showed vaccine effectiveness against hospitalization at 85% post booster. The other showed the vaccine stimulates a strong immune response from T-cells, which protect you even if the virus isn't completely blocked.If you think you can avoid the coronavirus by isolating yourself, try this on for size. Two-thirds of researchers in a remote station in Antarctica caught it even though they were fully vaccinated, PCR tested before arriving, and miles from civilization. So good luck with that isolation thing. In the United States, cases were up 153%, deaths are down 7%, and hospitalizations are up 14% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending up since December 14.

This is Vaccine 411, the latest coronavirus vaccine information for December 30th, 2021.Whoops. Germany's health minister said their infection rate is likely two to three times higher than the statistics that have been reported. He said there's a shortfall in staff that becomes particularly noticeable over holiday periods at local health offices, and that's a key part of Germany's reporting chain.France is taking the record-breaking surge seriously, increasing the pressure on the unvaccinated. The plan is to banish them from, well, society. Restaurants, cinemas, theaters, museums, and sports arenas, inter-regional trains and buses, and domestic flights. More than 4 million adults there remain unvaccinated, including more than 1 million who are over 65.Will France's strategy work? Let's look at China, which has a zero-tolerance policy toward the virus and a population that's in virtual total compliance. Cases rose for the fourth day in a row in the city of Xi'an, where 13 million people have been living under a comprehensive lockdown.And again, all this over a variant that is by nearly all reporting, mild, with symptoms akin to allergies. The CDC Director said COVID deaths and hospitalizations are comparatively low given how fast and broad Omicron has spread. And Dr. Anthony Fauci agrees.Let's check in with those unvaccinated folks and get the latest on why they aren't getting it. A new Census Bureau poll shows most, nearly half, are worried about potential side effects. Not trusting the vaccines and not trusting the government were also among the top reasons.

Psalm 84.10 NLT 'A single day in your courts is better than a thousand anywhere else! I would rather be a gatekeeper in the house of my God than live the good life in the homes of the wicked.' I wonder if you've ever experienced home sickness. I certainly have. I loved the years I spent in India and my Indian friends couldn't possibly have been more kind or welcoming. But there was still a deep longing to see my family and friends and, if I'm honest, to experience cold weather! At the time, the phone connection between India and the UK was very poor and in two years I only managed to make one call to my parents and it was incredibly expensive. The line was very crackly and it was very difficult to hear anything, but there were tears rolling down my cheeks as I succeeded in hearing the distant voices of my parents. I think the only significant information that we shared that could be clearly heard was them telling me that it was raining in Essex, and me informing me that it was hot in India!! The psalmist was thoroughly homesick when he wrote this particular psalm. And the home that he longed to be in was the temple. We don't know why he was unable to get there but he couldn't have described his anguish more powerfully. He wrote, “I long, yes, I faint with longing to enter the courts of the Lord. With my whole being, body and soul, I will shout joyfully to the living God.” (Psalm 84.2) Clearly the temple itself was incredibly precious to the psalmist but his longing was to be close to God. He spoke of the joy for those whose strength comes from the Lord and then movingly described the way that even “when they walk through the Valley of Weeping it will become a place of refreshing springs” (Psalm 84.6). Even the worst experiences of life can, miraculously, be transformed when we place our lives in God's hands. No wonder that the psalmist concluded that it would be better to have the lowest job of all in the presence of God, than to have all power and wealth and live at a distance from God. The psalmist's words are a good reminder for us all of the incredible blessing and privilege of spending time with God. QUESTION: How important is it to you to spend time with God? PRAYER: Lord God, we praise you for the blessing of your continual presence with us. Amen

The US Tuesday broke the previous record for most daily cases as infections accelerate. And most experts are saying Omicron is going to make for a very difficult January. One CNN medical analyst thinks the US could see half a million cases a day sometime over the next week to 10 days. The rate of booster doses has actually fallen in recent weeks. Only 32.7% of the U.S.'s fully vaccinated population is boosted. As it often has, the new CDC guidance around isolating and quarantining has left many Americans confused and many medical experts critical. They want to know why let people leave isolation without getting tested in the middle of a wintertime spike in cases. They think the answer might be pressure from the private sector. Speaking of the CDC, it's revised down its estimates for how many US infection are caused by Omicron. Revised it down by a lot. They now say it accounts for about 59% of all cases, not 73% like it said previously. Want some more good news? Another leading immunologist in the UK says Omicron is “not the same disease we were seeing a year ago” and high Covid death rates in the UK are “now history.” A small CDC study shows people who had Covid and later get reinfected with Omicron appear to experience fewer symptoms. And a special envoy for the World Health Organization says that in pandemics, the expected pattern is the virus becomes more transmissible but less serious, and Omicron might be a step toward our relatively safe coexistence with the virus. If you're having trouble finding a rapid test to see if you have Omicron, don't stress too much about it. The FDA says that when it comes to detecting the new variant, they're more likely to give you a false negative anyway. So how do you know if you have a cold, the flu, or COVID? An attending physician at Children's National Hospital tells CNN the early signs are alike for all three. Flu symptoms include fever, fatigue, body aches, sore throat, shortness of breath and vomiting or diarrhea.Covid-19 infection can be distinguished by headaches and a dry cough. Maybe loss of taste and smell though that's not common with Omicron. Night sweats are more common with Omicron. The best way to determine if it might be COVID is to factor in possible exposure you've had. In the United States cases were up 105%, deaths are down 5%, and hospitalizations are up 6% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending up since December 14. The five states that had the most daily deaths per 100,000 are Alaska, New Mexico, Michigan, Arizona, and Ohio.There are 11,981,273 active cases in the United States.The five areas with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Puerto Rico 225%, Washington DC 111%, New Jersey and Louisiana 60%, and Florida 57%.

The CDC shortened its isolation and quarantine recommendations for Americans based on data that if you're infected, you're most contagious two days before and three days after symptoms show up. If you're infected, regardless of vaccination status, when you test positive you should isolate for five days, instead of the previously recommended 10. After that, if you have no symptoms, you can go back to normal but wear a mask everywhere — even at home around others — at least five more days. If you were in close contact with an infected person but haven't tested positive yourself and aren't fully vaccinated, you should quarantine 10 days at least. If you've had your booster, you can skip quarantine if you wear masks in all settings at least 10 days.About those masks. If you're wearing those blue surgical cloth kind, they're now saying that's not good enough. They reportedly don't provide enough protection against Delta and especially Omicron. So you might run into places that require you have an N95 mask, which is great news for N95 mask companies because they run about $2 each. Why is COVID testing such a mess? An anonymous insider at an Australia pathology unit gives us one inside look at why it takes so long to process PCR tests, and their account has been verified by healthcare experts and other healthcare workers in pathology. It's the largely meaningless and unsuccessful travel restrictions. With negative tests required for interstate travel, it's crushing the system with high demand. The equipment used isn't meant for this kind of volume, and people are being worked inhumanely and quitting. Testing clinics have been relying on batch testing which lumps a lot of tests together and only separates them out if there's a positive. But now there's too many positives to make that work.Have anxiety and depression about getting vaccinated? Then what you need is a vaccination!

Remember all those healthcare workers the government wanted fired if they didn't get vaccinated? Turns out they now realize that created a real problem. With the Omicron wave coming and hospitals understaffed, federal officials loosened the rules that health care workers have to stay out of work 10 days if they test positive. They can now get back it after seven days if they test negative and don't have symptoms. Yesterday we told you about the Pfizer at home treatment pill getting approved to fight COVID, now they've authorized a second pill. This time it's Merck's molnupiravir. But it's been made clear Pfizer's Paxlovid is preferred because Merck's pill's ability to head off severe COVID is much smaller than initially announced and the label will warn of serious safety issues, including the potential for birth defects.China put a city of 13 million people into lockdown, part of the country's “zero tolerance” policy just weeks before it's set to host the Winter Olympics. In the northeastern city of Xi'an, one person from each household will be allowed out every two days to get necessities. Everyone else stays home around the clock. People who were in hotels at the time became stuck there.If you have a fake vaccine card in New York, you're no longer a clever scamp, you're a criminal. The governor signed legislation criminalizing fake Covid vaccination cards. The new law makes the falsification of cards a misdemeanor and creates a new felony of "computer tampering in the third degree for intentional entering, alteration or destruction of 'computer material' regarding COVID-19 vaccine provisions." We leave you with the frequently asked question of the week, so is everybody going to get COVID sooner or later? The experts say not necessarily. You'll probably be exposed, but whether or not you get infected and what it does to you still depends on public policy and how you behave. Bottom line, even if you're fully vaccinated, mentally prepare to test positive at some point. But no need to get overly alarmed when, or if, you do. In the United States cases were up 38%, deaths are up 6%, and hospitalizations are up 11% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending up since December 14.

In Spain and Its Achilles' Heels: The Strong Foundations of a Country's Weaknesses (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2021), Koldo Casla asks: Why was Franco exhumed from the Valley of the Fallen in late 2019? How is it that he was there in the first place? Why did Catalonia erupt suddenly in October 2017? Why don't you hear so much about the Basque Country anymore? How did Podemos gather momentum so quickly in 2014-15, and why did half of that support vanish five years later? Isn't it counterintuitive that a Catholic-majority country also has the most LGBT-friendly society in the world? Understanding the most significant events in recent Spanish politics requires spelling out the unspoken but enduring foundations of the country's deepest fears and weaknesses, its Achilles' heels. In Greek mythology, an Achilles' heel is a vulnerability that can lead to downfall despite the apparent general strength of the full body. Casla uses this term to define the underlying factors that, while by no means unique, are characteristic of a particular society, delimit what is possible and shape the political debate. They are the primary political frailties without which a country's politics cannot be properly comprehended. Koldo Casla is a Lecturer in Law at the University of Essex and the Director of the Human Rights Centre Clinic Kirk Meighoo is Public Relations Officer for the United National Congress, the Official Opposition in Trinidad and Tobago.

Ingen sjunger om kärlek som Sade Adu. För Sade handlar det framför allt om en livslång kamp, där känslorna mellan trohet och svek, resan mot det oundvikliga slutet resulterat i ljuva besvärjelser under en snart 40-årig karriär. Sade skulpterade en egen form av soulmusik, och en ny bild av kompromisslöst artisteri. Under en lugn yta fanns en tyst storm. Till skillnad från många stora vokalister höll hon tillbaka, och skänkte lyssnaren ett välbehag genom lågmäld passion och tidlös minimalism.Sade berättade för Mats Nileskär om rasismen som påverkade henne som barn i Essex, känslor av övergivenhet under Thatcher-eran, rötterna till en brittisk stil som bidrog till att förändra soul i Amerika, förbannelsen som hindrade henne att leva ett harmoniskt liv, och vad som hände när hon insåg att framgång inte per automatik innebar tillbedjan.Avsnittet innehåller även intervjuer med Anita Baker, Greentea Peng och Fatback Band (Bill Curtis).

A ship that passes in the night is like a thought in slow motion. A thought travelled in, from across the ocean. A thought made of bulk timber upon steel. Made of engine, rudder and wheel. That moves, not at any recognisable speed, but in nautical miles, in other worldly miles, and is nothing more than a string of twinkling lights.   From this place upon the seawall, the nocturnal transit begins, as a warm, pulsating hum. As a low down sound rising slowly, in the east. A vast, gradually approaching hulk, that to the in-flowing tide, is nothing more than a drifting feather. To it, a feather, adrift. To us, a ship.   This section is another from the twelve hour overnight recording we made last summer in Essex, about seven miles inland from the North Sea along the tidal River Crouch. The mics, which we tied to a seawall railing while we slept in a nearby inn, captured this chance event in total darkness, an event that we feel makes for one of the most compelling listens, of all the river sounds. A passing ship! a ship that comes, and never seems to go. A hum, among the washing waves.

On November 24th,  27 migrants died trying to cross the Channel to the UK in an inflatable dinghy. This was one of the deadliest incidents of this kind.  The UK's prime minister Boris Johnson blamed France for not taking stricter measures to prevent those who enable such journeys. People trafficking gangs were “literally getting away with murder”, he said.  But are the people smugglers really the ones to blame for these deaths? Would tougher sentences on those who offer such services be warranted? Are tougher measures likely to benefit migrants in any way? Or would they end up putting them in situations of even greater danger? Mollie Gerver is an assistant professor in the Department of Government at the University of Essex. From January 2022 she will be an assistant professor in the Department of Political Economy at King's College London. Her philosophical research focuses on two main topics: consent, and immigration ethics.  She is the author of the book The Ethics and Practice of Refugee Repatriation and a number of papers on the Ethics of Immigration, one of which we discuss on the podcast: Decriminalizing People Smuggling.

Next time we will be back with a wrap-up episode for our 19 for 2022 Reading Challenge. The Literary Life Commonplace Books published by Blue Sky Daisies are back with new covers for 2022! Coming up on The Literary Life podcast in the new year, we have Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dreamcoming up in January and after that, Abolition of Man by C. S. Lewis. Then we will be reading The Enchanted Aprilby Elizabeth von Arnim and Charles Dickens' Hard Times later in the year. Our children's classic novel this year will be The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame. Commonplace Quotes: The artist must be in his work as God is in creation, invisible and all-powerful. One must sense him everywhere, but not see him. Gustave Flaubert There reigns thro' all the blank verse poems such a perpetual trick of moralizing every thing–which is very well, occasionally–but never to see or describe any interesting appearance in nature, without connecting it by dim analogies with the moral world, proves faintness of Impression. Nature has her proper interest; and he will know what it is, who believes and feels, that everything has a Life of its own, and that we are all one Life.  Malcolm Guite The principle behind modern methods of reading is stated in the form: if there is to be a meaning, it shall be ours.

Each kit contains an affirmation to work with as you stitch to help infuse your mindful intention into your art.

See the entry > Examples: "Oil derricks dot the coastline, often scattered in between residential and shopping centers with views of the ocean." — The Examiner (Washington, D.C.), 22 Oct. 2021 Did you know? During the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, London was the home of a notorious executioner named Derick. Among those he beheaded was the Earl of Essex, Robert Devereux, who supposedly had once saved the life of the ungrateful executioner. While members of the nobility were accorded the courtesy of beheading, it was the lot of commoners to be hanged, and those sent to face the rope at the hands of the executioner Derick nicknamed the gallows after him. Today, derrick is commonly used for a framework, but one that supports equipment used in drilling for oil.
