Americans Quitting Jobs At Highest Rate Since 2000

Wall Street Journal: “More U.S. workers are quitting their jobs than at any time in at least two decades, signaling optimism among many professionals while also adding to the struggle companies face trying to keep up with the economic recovery.

“The wave of resignations marks a sharp turn from the darkest days of the pandemic, when workers craved job security while weathering a national health and economic crisis.”


California is back, baby.

It is now June 15 in the Golden State and we can now reap the rewards of sound policies under Joe Biden and Gavin Newsom.

Delta variant 60% more transmissible, reduces vaccine effect, UK experts say

The rapid surge in cases during Delhi’s fourth Covid-19 wave was mainly driven by the Delta variant, which likely has immune-evasion properties and accounted for 60 per cent of the cases in April, according to a new study.

The Delta variant, B.1.617.2, is 50 per cent more transmissible than the Alpha variant, B1.117, first discovered in the UK, say researchers from the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the CSIR Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology (IGIB).
Prior infections, high seropositivity and partial vaccination are “insufficient impediments” to the spread of the Delta variant, found the scientists. They traced the factors contributing to the scale and speed of the fourth wave that started in April in Delhi and compared them to the preceding three waves last year.

“We find that this surge of SARS-CoV-2 infections in Delhi is best explained by the introduction of a new highly transmissible variant of concern (VOC), B.1.617.2, with likely immune-evasion properties," the researchers noted.

The variant may have led to insufficient neutralising immunity in people, despite high seropositivity, and social behaviour may have augmented the surge by promoting transmission, they added.

'Loki' Debut Tops 'WandaVision' And 'Falcon And The Winter Soldier'

oki has reportedly beaten out WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in its debut on Disney Plus.

Since the debut of The Mandalorian, Disney Plus has proven itself to be a force to be reckoned with in the streaming industry, with subscription numbers beating out all expectations. Earlier this year, both WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier both became big hits for the platform with the latter becoming the first Disney Plus series to top Nielsen’s streaming charts. But now it appears that Loki may be beating out both of these series.

According to a new report, the debut of Loki on Disney Plus has beaten out both WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. WandaVision debuted with over 655,000 viewers and Falcon and The Winter Solder came in with over 759,000. Now Loki has beaten that out with a reported 890,000 views. The report sites SambaTV as the source of this information which measures streaming viewership on 3M smart terrestrial TV households for at least five minutes. It is noted however that this did not include mobile views.
