How long can you safely be around someone with coronavirus? It's complicated
How long does it take to get the coronavirus if you’re around someone who’s infected? Unfortunately, there’s no magic number of minutes.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently revised how it defines a close contact, the people contact tracers track down and advise to quarantine and get tested. Previously, a close contact was anyone who spent at least 15 minutes within 6 feet of a person confirmed to have COVID-19. Now, those 15 minutes don’t need to be consecutive. Instead, a close contact is anyone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a minimum of 15 minutes within ...

Anne Hathaway “didn’t tell anybody” she was pregnant.The 37-year-old actress was expecting her son Jack, now 11 months, when she was filming her new movie ‘The Witches’, and has said she managed to keep her pregnancy a secret on set because her “costume still fit” even with her baby bump.She said: "I didn't really tell anybody that I was pregnant because I was still in my first trimester.

Police crimes making us very smart
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari recently announced that the murderous and corrupt police unit SARS, for Special Anti-Robbery Squad, would be disbanded.The action followed an intensification of the long-running #EndSARS protests, both at home and internationally with its fair share of stars. #EndSARS scored a rare victory. Like in most of Africa, the problem of police brutality and corruption runs so deep, dismantling a rogue unit offers only limited relief.Still, anyone who’s followed the brutality of the Nigerian police, and especially SARS, for long will agree that it is in a class of it...

UM's Lashlee unloads naked truth: 'We got whipped, I got whipped.' Clemson loss 'hurts.'
Coaches hurt, too.University of Miami offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said bluntly Monday what anyone who watched former No. 7 Miami at No. 1 Clemson saw Saturday night: Miami couldn’t protect, couldn’t pass, couldn’t catch and couldn’t run.“I don’t think there’s really any fairness to assessing one group over the other,” Lashlee said, when asked to assess the play of his offensive linemen, who were responsible for four of the five sacks. “We got whipped in every phase. We got whipped up front, we got whipped on the perimeter, I got whipped. I didn’t do a very good job.“Look, we got our ta...
Bill Madden: Good riddance to the Padres' Johnny Wholestaff approach, and beware to anyone who lets Travis d'Arnaud leave
So how are you enjoying these new age baseball playoff games of “we hardly saw you” starting pitchers along with the usual high volume strikeouts?It certainly seems rather ironic that in the week the baseball world lost Bob Gibson, perhaps the most durable and uncompromising competitor of them all, the first 65 games of the postseason were completed with only 12 starting pitchers pitching into the seventh inning, four into the eighth and, of course, zero complete games.

"I don't think she heard that from anyone reputable, like, that was really around us, because that wasn’t ever our policy on set... The one thing that we really were good about on our set was making people feel welcome and feel like they were a part of the family and what we were doing, and they were a part of the team. So I can’t imagine that at all." Brian Austin Green was shocked to learn Jessica Alba was told not to look at him or his castmates when she was a guest on Beverly Hills, 90210 in the late 1990s. Alba made the claim during a recent appearance on webseries Hot Ones.©2020 WENNProv...
