US ‘actively looking’ at requiring COVID testing before domestic flights

US ‘actively looking’ at requiring COVID testing before domestic flights

first_imggerenme/iStockBy MINA KAJI and CONOR FINNEGAN, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — The Biden administration is “actively looking” at requiring COVID-19 tests before domestic flights, a senior Centers for Disease Control and Prevention official said on Tuesday.“These are conversations that are ongoing,” CDC Director for the Division of Global Migration and Quarantine Marty Cetron told reporters, “and looking at what the types and locations of testing might be. We’re actively looking at it.”This would be an expansion of the administration’s mandatory testing requirement for U.S.-bound travelers that took effect on Tuesday. All travelers flying into the U.S. must now provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test, taken no more than three days before their flight, or they will be denied boarding.The order was initially announced by the CDC on Jan. 12 and formalized in an executive order President Joe Biden signed last week.“We urge folks to postpone their trips if they’re able,” acting Assistant Secretary of Consular Affairs Ian Brownlee said Tuesday, “and if they absolutely must travel to equip themselves with information.”Brownlee warned travelers will be responsible for covering their own lodging and medical costs if they test positive or cannot get a test while overseas.“The bottom line message is this is really not a time for people to be engaging in discretionary travel, and that all travel should be postponed until we get a better handle on getting this virus under control and accelerate our vaccination strategies,” Cetron said.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

All or Nothing

All or Nothing

first_imgAs vices go, nothing gets the adrenal glands pumping quite as much as gambling. Thoughts of vats of chocolate and gallons of liquor might send tingles down your spine; dalliances with the law might give you kicks; I’m sure sex in public places is an acquired thrill; but you can’t beat gambling: the anticipation of wining big – it’s a vice that really lets you know you’re alive. And so having a flutter, at first sight, is harmless enough. It won’t add two hundred pounds to your already ample frame, won’t put you in a coma, won’t get you arrested. But, as with all vices, if indulged in often enough it will still pave the way to your ruin. It was with this in mind, and a hundred quid in my pocket, that I headed to Las Vegas, Mecca for gamblers the world over. Vegas: the city of vice, the centre of hedonism, the place to party. Vegas is the celebration of sin. They’ve made it legal, made it 24 hours, dressed it up with whistles and bells. There are many great gambling tales set in Vegas, glorious examples of fortunes won and lost. Kerry Packer, the Australian Billionaire, once lost $20 million at the Bellagio playing poker at $200,000 a hand. But of course, there’s a flip side to the coin; he also won $26 million at blackjack at the MGM Grand. Bond himself, Sean Connery, once aquired $27,000 (in 1963) playing Roulette and betting on number seventeen three times in a row – odds of fifty-thousand to one. It’s the idea of beating odds like that that gamblers live for. For, as all hard-core gamblers will tell you, gambling is not about the money. It’s not even about the win. It’s about the odds. The psychological impulse behind the drive to bet is the sense of achievement and victory at beating the house. Without the chance of losing, wining would mean nothing. And the bigger the odds the bigger the victory rush. An old episode of the Twilight Zone showed this perfectly: a gambler, having lost all his life, dies and in the afterlife finds himself once again at the gaming tables. He’s delighted to discover that he wins every hand he plays. Then his delight begins to wear off. He can’t lose. The ‘gamble’ has been taken away from him. He is in Hell: destined to spend eternity playing the same game with the same result. Without the chance to lose, all the gratification of winning has been taken away. It’s an empty victory. This poses an interesting question about human nature and the nature of happiness. Most people (bar the odd sadomasochist) would, given the opportunity, wish to be happy for the rest of their lives. But would that really be Heaven? Perhaps we need the lows in life to have the highs. Perhaps without them life would flatten out into a serious of meaningless moments, accentuated and heightened by nothing. Remember that when you’ve just been dumped, your tutor says you’re the dumbest student he’s ever had and you’re forced to spend your summer working in MacDonald’s to pay your tuition fees while the rest of friends are sunning themselves on a beach in Maui. Tell yourself that these moments are the necessary stones that’ll pave your way to the days of utter bliss and joy ahead of you. It’ll be small consolation no doubt, but consolation nonetheless. In Vegas every gambler I met could instantly be put into one of these two categories: hard-core – those in it for the odds, and soft-core – those in it for the money. The sort of people who played the tables hoping to make their fortunes are the same sorts who play the National Lottery. This is not gambling. No self-respecting gambler would play odds of 14 million to one. The odds have to mean something. And the lottery winner doesn’t jump up and down screaming “I’ve beaten the odds, what a sense of achievement!” unlike those who aim at cheating the system. They jump up and screaming “I’m a f***ing millionaire!” And every week the other five million or so unfortunates who didn’t win tell themselves they’ll have better luck next time. It is often said, with much justification, that the National Lottery is a tax on the stupid. There was also a third category in Vegas: the ludicrously rich. These are those sad folks who have so much money they have a hard time spending it. Once they’ve bought all the fast cars they can reasonably drive in a lifetime, a couple of Leer jets, and a small island in the South Pacific, they turn to other things: trading their millions for a few seconds of thrills. As with US shock-jock, Howard Stern, who attempted to place a $1 million bet on a single hand of blackjack. Unfortunately for him he had to squander his wealth elsewhere since every gaming house in Vegas refused to take the bet. However you choose to waste your money, remember this: gambling is only a mug’s game if you actually expect to win.ARCHIVE: 0th week TT 2004last_img read more

Umphrey’s McGee Welcomes Warren Haynes, Marco Benevento At Mountain Jam

Umphrey’s transitioned into “Higgins”, and brought out Mountain Jam favorite and co-host Warren Haynes to play guitar on the reggae-tinged song.  Following a run from “The Linear” into “Booth Love”, the band segued into a rousing cover of “Breathe” by Pink Floyd, which featured a guest appearance by Marco Benevento, who served as the evening’s other headliner.  “Breathe” flowed into classic Umphrey’s track “Mulche’s Odyssey,” which ended the first set.Umphrey’s began the second set with consecutive classics, opening with “40’s Theme” and following that up with an epic segment that moved from their classic “Bridgeless” into the uplifting former lyrical Jimmy Stewart “Upward”.  After the newer song “Speak Up”, UM dance favorite “The Triple Wide” appeared out of nowhere to get the crowd moving.  The proggy “Educated Guess” was up next, with the groove-heavy “Conduit” following it up.  Umphrey’s brought things to a close with a rare cover from their Halloween mashup tradition, busting out “Thunder Kiss Relax”, otherwise known as “Frankie Zombie”, blending together White Zombie’s “Thunder Kiss ‘65” with “Relax” by Frankie Goes To Hollywood, with a little bit of Pink Floyd’s “Have a Cigar” thrown in for good measure.The Chicago rockers returned to the stage for a two-song encore, beginning with “Hajimemishite” and then finally completing the “Bridgeless” that opened set two.  What a rockin’, fun show to open up Mountain Jam!Check out the setlist below, via All Things Umphrey’s.Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee at Mountain Jam, Hunter Mountain, NY – 6/2/16Set 1: Similar Skin, Rocker Part 2, Attachments, Little Gift > Higgins[1], The Linear > Booth Love, Breathe[2] > Mulche’s OdysseySet 2: 40’s Theme, Bridgeless > Upward, Speak Up, The Triple Wide > Educated Guess, Conduit, Frankie ZombieEncore: Hajimemashite > Bridgeless[1] with Warren Haynes on guitar[2] “dub” version; with Marco Benevento on keysDay One Gallery (by Patrick Hughes): Load remaining imageslast_img read more
