This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 5 WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House is planning for “dire” contingencies that could include rationing supplies of vaccines and treatments this fall if Congress doesn’t approve more money for fighting COVID-19. In public comments and private meetings on Capitol Hill, Dr. Ashish Jha, the White House coronavirus coordinator, has painted a dark picture in which the U.S. could be forced to cede many of the advances made against the coronavirus over the last two years and even the most vulnerable could face supply shortages. Biden administration officials have been warning for weeks that the country has spent nearly all the money in the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan that was dedicated directly to COVID-19 response. A small pool of money remains, and the administration faces critical decisions about how to spend it. That means tough decisions, like weighing whether to … [Read more...] about US sees risk of COVID supply rationing without more funds

When Angelyn Burk, a recently retired accountant, decided to crunch some numbers one evening last year, she made a stunning discovery: It would be cheaper for her and her husband to spend their retirement perpetually aboard cruise ships than to continue living on land. "This is how I want to retire," Angelyn, 53, decided in that moment. "Life is too short." She turned to her husband, Richard Burk, and said: "We can do this. Let's make cruise ships our home." To her delight, he was onboard. The couple had thoroughly enjoyed the nearly 10 cruises they had been on together in the past, and they have a mutual love for travel as well as a shared disdain for airports. They looked online and determined that, on average, they could string together voyages on various cruise ships for markedly less money than their collective cost of living on land. All they had to do was hop from ship to ship with some small breaks in between. "We calculated that we can probably live reasonably … [Read more...] about Accountant retires on cruise ships to avoid cost of land living
Things are always more interesting around here when the Yankees look like the YANKEES again, which means looking like they have a chance to be great again. That hasn’t happened in a while, maybe not since the American League Championship Series of 2019, one the Astros won with that buzzer-beating walk-off homer from our old friend, Jose Altuve. They’ve definitely looked great so far, as just about everything possible has broken exactly right for them. They’ve been carried by their pitching, both starting and relief, by Aaron Judge and their other starting forward, Giancarlo Stanton. Judge and Stanton, of course, are the only two guys with 50-home run seasons on their resumes playing for the Yankees at the same time since Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris were those guys in the ‘60s. They have also been remarkably healthy until Chad Green, one of the horses in Aaron Boone’s bullpen, came up with a sore forearm the other day in Baltimore. You add it all up, and there are plenty of … [Read more...] about Mike Lupica: How good are these Yankees? We’ll find out over the next month

As he walked off the Miami Heat practice court Monday, veteran forward and converted hockey fan Udonis Haslem shook his head. “Not good. Not good,” he said. “The Lightning, that’s not good for us, right?” He was talking about the Florida Panthers’ second-round matchup against the Tampa Bay Lightning, the two-time-defending Stanley Cup champions. And he recognized an intrastate rivalry percolating because of the Panthers’ rise to contender status. The day after Haslem’s forecast, ahead of what turned into 0-2 direness for his adopted Panthers, another intrastate rivalry received a jolt, with the Orlando Magic winning the NBA lottery, the first pick in the June 23 draft now theirs. That, of course, is a big deal. And the Magic certainly have done big things with such selections before, turning previous No. 1 selections into Shaquille O’Neal, Penny Hardaway (through trade) and Dwight Howard. The Heat, by contrast, with the notable exception of Dwyane Wade, largely have … [Read more...] about Ira Winderman: Based on how balls bounced, is a rivalry brewing for Heat?
