Johnson & Johnson pauses COVID-19 vaccine trial after participant experiences unexplained illness

Noble Horvath

Johnson & Johnson says it has temporarily paused its COVID-19 vaccine candidate clinical trials due to an unexplained illness in a study participant, delaying one of the highest-profile efforts to contain the global pandemic.

The participant’s illness is being reviewed and evaluated by an independent data and safety monitoring board as well as the company’s clinical and safety physicians, the company said.

J&J, which reports quarterly financial results on Tuesday, said that such pauses are normal in big trials, which can include tens of thousands of people. It said the “study pause” in giving doses of the vaccine candidate was different from a “regulatory hold” required by health authorities. The current case is a pause.

However, J&J’s move follows a similar one by AstraZeneca Plc. In September, AstraZeneca paused late-stage trials of its experimental coronavirus vaccine, developed with the University of Oxford, due to an unexplained illness in a UK

Amazon pitches early holiday shopping with fall ‘Prime Day’ event

Noble Horvath

(Reuters) – Inc on Tuesday began 48 hours of promotions as part of “Prime Day,” a closely watched marketing event the company had postponed due to operational challenges from the coronavirus pandemic.

The event, typically held in July to boost summer sales, is now a kickoff to what will be an earlier holiday shopping season. The member-only discounts are a key way Amazon markets Prime, a fast-shipping and media-streaming service that incentivizes subscribers to do more shopping on Amazon.

Rivals Walmart Inc and Target Corp are meanwhile hosting promotions at the same time. Online sales may prove critical for retailers as the pandemic forestalls the typical crowds at stores after the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday.

At the pandemic’s outset, Amazon was focused on shipping essential items to shoppers. Now its aim is to help customers with their holiday lists on Prime Day, said Jamil Ghani, a company vice president.

Bundesliga’s Destination for Young Soccer Stars

With their transformation into the Bundesliga’s swashbuckling title contenders, Borussia Dortmund has made themselves a destination for exciting, young soccer stars. There’s something in the water at Westphalia that turns potential into proven articles. Few teams in top European leagues place so much emphasis on youth talent as the Black and Yellow, and it’s been entirely to the benefit of club and player.

It is reminiscent of another powerhouse club, this time in the Netherlands. Ajax have famously had youth players come in and introduce themselves to the soccer world. Frenkie de Jong, Matthijs de Ligt, and Donny van de Beek are just a few of the Dutch side’s recent standout young talents. And both Ajax and Dortmund are known for taking diamonds in the rough and polishing them to shine on soccer’s biggest stages.

Vatican Court Hears Graphic Description of Sexual Abuse | World News

Noble Horvath

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – (Graphic content in paragraph 6)

A Vatican court heard graphic descriptions of sexual abuse on Wednesday as two priests went on trial, one charged with repeatedly raping an altar boy in a youth seminary and the other of covering up the attacks.

The first hearing lasted only eight minutes as charges were read to Father Gabriele Martinelli, 28, who was a minor for most of the time of the alleged abuse, and Father Enrico Radice, 72, who was rector.

Neither of the two defendants has responded publicly to the accusations and the defence has not yet entered a formal plea.

The abuse took place between 2007 and 2012 in the Pius X Pre-Seminary, which houses altar boys who serve Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica, sometimes for the pope, and are thinking of becoming priests.

Martinelli later went on to become a priest and the prosecution says

Prepping for ‘the Shipathon:’ With online holiday shopping amid the pandemic, how busy will shipping get?

Noble Horvath

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Since the coronavirus pandemic began in March, Americans have largely been staying home — and ordering goods online. The U.S. Post Office and shipping companies like FedEx and UPS have been running at full-tilt ever since.

Now with holiday season approaching, delivery services are preparing for perhaps their busiest seasons ever by expanding services and hiring seasonal employees.

FedEx spokeswoman Jennifer Caccavo Cordeau says the company is preparing for a “The Shipathon,” heading into this unprecedented peak season.

“With the onset of COVID-19, we have been operating at peak levels since March, and there is no sign of slowing down,” Cordeau said.

FedEx has opened over 70,000 positions in key markets. It accelerated its seven-day residential delivery and made more investments in automated facilities.

UPS will hire more than 100,000 seasonal employees. Already, UPS spokesman Matthew O’Connor said, the company has been working at a holiday-peak level.

Dr. Guangyu Wu is dissecting the molecular homing that enables a nascent protein to ultimately find its way to the surface of a cell as a mature receptor type that helps us taste, smell and even regulate our mood and immunity.

“These receptors are essential for normal body function, many diseases use them and many drugs target them,” says Wu, pharmacologist in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University.

Wu is talking about G protein-coupled receptors, or GPCRs, that with more than 800 types in the human genome, are the largest of three classes of cell surface receptors involved in an also large number of essential functions and targeted by at least a third of the drugs out

This story was reported by Catherine Carrera, Matthew Chayes, Bart Jones, David Reich-Hale, Joie Tyrrell and John Valenti. It was written by Jones.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said Tuesday that Ohio, Michigan and Virginia were added to the list of states and territories with high levels of COVID-19 infection and from which travelers must quarantine for 14 days upon arrival here.

No places were removed from the list, which numbers more than 30 states and territories.

More schools on Long Island responded to new cases, while New York City schools reported a “really encouraging” result from recent testing, New York City Mayor de Blasio said Tuesday.

The positivity level from tests completed Monday across all of New York was measured at 1.2% outside of the “micro-clusters” the state is targeting, but rose to 4.13% in about 20 “hot spots” that the state is targeting in
