Michael Stanley, a Cleveland-based rocker who with his namesake band reached the Top 40 in the 1980s with the hits “He Can't Love You” and “My Town,” and went on to a long career as a radio disc jockey, has died. Stanley died Thursday after a seven-month battle with lung cancer, his family said in a statement.
The investigation had hit a dead end,
Michael Stanley, who parlayed rocker stardom in the ’70s and ’80s into successful stints in radio and television in his later years, died Friday of lung cancer at his home. He was 72 and his death was confirmed by his manager. Stanley’s rock career was solid in Ohio and the Midwest, but never quite broke […]

Applause broke out in the Senate on Saturday afternoon as senators voted 50-49 to pass President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion (£1.3 trillion) Covid relief package. Not one Republican senator voted for the sweeping package, which provides direct payments to the majority of Americans and funding for states to distribute Covid-19 vaccines and ramp up testing for the coronavirus.

The World Cup qualifiers set to take place this month across South America have been suspended amid concern over the coronavirus pandemic and strict quarantine restrictions. A double-header for 10 South American nations were scheduled across March 25, 26 and 30, including Brazil's games against Argentina and Colombia, and the River Plate derby between Argentina and Uruguay. Any UK-based players who went to South America would face 10 days in hotel quarantine on return.
La rarissima variante Covid scoperta a Varese "non deve preoccupare, è una delle tante e ne vedremo di tutti i colori. Facciamo bene a cercale e a tenere tracciata questa situazione però dobbiamo continuare a farlo senza preoccupazioni o timori". Lo afferma all'Adnkronos Salute il virologo Massimo Clementi, direttore del Laboratorio di Microbiologia e Virologia dell'ospedale San Raffaele di Milano, docente all'università Vita-Salute. Il team di Clementi ha collaborato con il Laboratorio di Microbiologia dell'Asst Sette Laghi di Varese che ha scoperto la rara variante Covid. "Quella scoperta a Varese è una delle tre varianti che sono emerse negli ultimi tempi e in qualche modo rappresenta la minoranza visto che ormai in Italia è predominate quella inglese - spiega Clementi - Ora ci sono due questioni dal punto di vista biologico, il virus troverà sempre meno spazi per replicarsi perché, al contrario dei mesi passati, sta crescendo la popolazione con anticorpi, perché colpita dalla malattia, e stanno aumentando i vaccinati. Ecco perché diciamo che si deve correre con le vaccinazioni, non perché dobbiamo arrivare all'immunità di gregge ma per impedire al virus di trovare nuove strade per mutare. Queste varianti che vengono scoperte in tutto il mondo si somigliano un po' tutte, quella brasiliana ci preoccupa un po' di più ma sappiamo che il virus non potrà cambiare all'infinito". "Due giorni fa - ricorda Clementi - è stato pubblicato in pre-print, quindi ancora non accettato per la pubblicazione ufficiale, uno studio molto importante firmato da un luminare come David Oh, nel 1996 inserito tra i migliori scienziati per i suoi studi sull'Aids. Il virologo ha studiato le varianti Covid oggi più diffuse focalizzando l'attenzione su quella brasiliana verificando gli effetti su questa mutazione degli anticorpi monoclonali e del siero dei soggetti guariti e di chi è stato vaccinato con Pfizer e Moderna - prosegue Clementi - È emerso che gli anticorpi hanno qualche piccolo problema con questa variante, mentre i sieri dei soggetti guariti e di chi era stato già vaccinato, anche se con una minor efficacia, neutralizzano molto bene la variante brasiliana. È un risultato molto importante".
Egyptian president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi called on Saturday (March 6) for a binding deal by the summer on the operation of a giant Ethiopian hydropower dam. On his first visit to Sudan since the 2019 overthrow of Omar al-Bashir, Sisi said talks over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, or GERD, should aim at reaching an agreement before the next flood season. Both Egypt and Sudan lie downstream from the dam, which Addis Ababa says is crucial to its economic development.Ethiopia, which says it has every right to use Nile waters long exploited by Egypt, started filling the reservoir behind the dam last summer, after Egypt and Sudan failed to secure a legally binding agreement on how the dam will be operated.Khartoum fears the dam could increase the risk of flooding and affect the safe operation of its own Nile dams.Meanwhile, Egypt fears its supplies from the Nile could be hit.Years of diplomatic talks over the project have repeatedly stalled.But Egypt and Sudan's positions have drawn closer as Cairo has engaged in a flurry of diplomacy over the issue in the last two years. The Egyptian president also signalled support for Sudan in a dispute with Ethiopia over the unrest in the border area of Al-Fashqa, which has long been settled by Ethiopian farmers. Ethiopia has rejected Sudan's claims to be asserting its rights to control the area under a border agreement from 1903.

The US Senate passed Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package giving him the biggest victory of his presidency so far. Senators sat through the night on Friday and eventually passed Mr Biden's "American Rescue Plan" on Saturday afternoon. The final voter came after a marathon legislative process called a "vote-a-rama" in which any senator could attempt to add an amendment. Republicans, and some Democrats, sought to do so but many were voted down. During the all-night sitting several elderly senators appeared to doze off at their desks, sometimes burying their faces in their hands. The bill was held up for around 12 hours by a single Democrat - conservative-leaning Joe Manchin - until a deal was agreed after a personal phone call from Mr Biden.
