1,400 Seattle students without updated vaccinations could be banned from class: report

Students in Seattle who do not have the required vaccinations could be prevented from returning to class when school resumes on Jan. 8, officials said.

As of Friday, some 1,400 students did not have up-to-date vaccination records, according to officials with Seattle Public Schools, as reported by Q13 Fox. 

THE FLU HAS SICKENED THIS STATE THE MOST, REPORT FINDS 

“It’s going to be a matter of the district and the school, principals and teachers and nurses doing everything they can right here at the finish line to get all the students’ records updated come January 8,” Tim Robinson, a spokesperson for Seattle Public Schools, told the news station. Free vaccination clinics were offered over winter break, he noted, adding the number of students without up-to-date vaccination records is expected to decline before the Wednesday deadline.

That said, those who do not meet the deadline will not be allowed to return to school “until the required information is provided to the school nurse,” according to a December statement on the Seattle Public Schools website.

The news comes after a new Washington State law that does away with personal and/or philosophical exemptions to the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine went into effect over the summer. The law “also requires that students are fully vaccinated, be in the process of completing immunizations or have a signed Certificate of Exemption (religious or medical exemption) in order to attend school,” as per the statement.

Any missed days over outdated immunizations records will be counted as unexcused absences, the district said, noting they will be marked as excused only after updated records are submitted.

The Seattle Public School District is comprised of 50,000 students and 104 schools, according to CNN.

“I think as responsible parents, we all should be responsible for our children,” one parent, Marieck Garcia, told Q13 Fox. “I think that’s important to keep everybody healthy.”

TV mixup has Russian fans celebrating despite losing

Westlake Legal Group Russia-U20 TV mixup has Russian fans celebrating despite losing fox-news/world/world-regions/russia fox-news/sports/nhl fox-news/sports fnc/sports fnc Associated Press article 90c5d34d-e33f-5571-ae56-86288eab3ae0

Some Russian hockey fans were celebrating victory despite losing at the world junior hockey championships because of a confusingly timed TV repeat.

Two state TV channels showed Russia-Canada finals at the same time on Sunday. One was live, and the other was from 2011.

While most fans, and Russia’s players, commiserated after a 4-3 loss to Canada on Channel One, many Russians watched a nail-biting, 9-year-old 5-3 comeback win on rival broadcaster Match TV.

Some fans posted celebratory messages on social media, or complained media outlets were reporting the wrong score. It became hard to tell who was genuinely duped and who was in on the joke.

Soccer player Dmitry Tarasov wrote on Instagram: “Well done guys, congratulations on the win.” After the post was widely mocked, Tarasov said it was meant as a joke after he forfeited in a board game he was playing with family.

Yana Tarasenko, a lifestyle blogger who is the wife of St. Louis Blues forward Vladimir Tarasenko, posted on Instagram that her husband had watched the 2011 game for 10 minutes in the belief it was live — at least “until he saw himself in the game.”

Tarasenko was on the winning Russian team in 2011, but at the age of 28 he is now far too old for world juniors.

It wasn’t immediately clear why Match TV decided to show the 2011 final at the same time as the live broadcast. It had shown live world juniors games earlier in the tournament, but the medal rounds were only on Channel One. Match TV didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

NASA loses contact with satellite searching for distant planets

This may be a big year for NASA with a number of upcoming projects, but 2020 is off to a rocky start for the space agency, as it announced it lost contact with the ASTERIA satellite, a small spacecraft that’s designed to look for planets outside the Solar System.

NASA JPL said it lost contact with the Arcsecond Space Telescope Enabling Research in Astrophysics (ASTERIA) satellite on Dec. 5. The craft, smaller than a suitcase and known as a CubeSat, was observing “a handful of nearby stars” and was able to demonstrate “that it could achieve precision measurements of the stars’ brightness,” the agency said in a release dated Jan. 3.

“With that data, scientists look for dips in a star’s light that would indicate an orbiting planet passing between the satellite and the star. (This planet-hunting technique is called the transit method.) Mission data is still being analyzed to confirm whether ASTERIA spotted any distant worlds.”

NASA 2020: MARS, RETURN TO THE MOON AND MORE

Since it completed its initial mission in February 2018, ASTERIA has been used to test a variety of functions to make CubeSats more autonomous, including the use of artificial intelligence, NASA said. “ASTERIA also made opportunistic observations of the Earth, a comet, other spacecraft in geo-synchronous orbit and stars that might host transiting exoplanets,” the space agency added.

“The ASTERIA project achieved outstanding results during its three -month prime mission and its nearly two-year-long extended mission,” said JPL’s Lorraine Fesq, current ASTERIA program manager, in a statement. “Although we are disappointed that we lost contact with the spacecraft, we are thrilled with all that we have accomplished with this impressive CubeSat.”

ASTERIA could also aid with missions such as the Transiting Exoplanet Satellite Survey (TESS), the replacement for the Kepler satellite. TESS has made a number of exoplanet discoveries, including its most recent find of an alien world that “should not exist” in its current location.

NASA: ANCIENT MARS OASIS COULD HAVE SUPPORTED LIFE

Even if NASA is unable to regain contact with ASTERIA, it said scientists will still be able to conduct experiments on the autonomy programs utilizing the mission testbed, a replica of the craft’s internal hardware.

ASTERIA has been sending data to NASA since 2017. Since completing its initial mission in February 2018, it has performed three mission extensions. NASA said attempts to contact the craft “are expected to continue into March 2020.”

Stocks Fall as U.S.-Iran Tensions Mount

Westlake Legal Group 06markets2-facebookJumbo Stocks Fall as U.S.-Iran Tensions Mount United States Defense and Military Forces Stocks and Bonds Politics and Government Oil (Petroleum) and Gasoline Middle East Iran gold Futures and Options Trading

The aftershock of the American killing of a powerful Iranian general rippled through financial markets on Monday, as oil prices surged and investors turned to safe havens like gold and Treasury bonds in the face of rising tensions in the Middle East.

The S&P 500 dropped 0.6 percent in early trading, a second day of declines since the killing of Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani. Iran pledged to retaliate for the killing while President Trump raised the specter of additional strikes on Iranian cultural sites if it did so.

The State Department warned of a “heightened risk” of a missile attack near American military bases. Iran later said it would abandon a nuclear agreement and Iraq vowed to expel American troops from the country.

The sudden escalation in tensions in a region that supplies much of the world’s petroleum has roiled oil markets.

The price of Brent oil, the international benchmark, jumped above $70 in futures trading before falling back slightly. The price is about 5 percent higher than before the killing last week.

West Texas Intermediate, the American oil benchmark, rose 1.6 percent to $64.04 a barrel in futures trading.

Analysts at Capital Economics have warned that the price of oil could spike to $150 a barrel if the bellicose rhetoric between the two countries turned into action.

“The price of oil would soar in the event of full-blown military conflict in the Middle East,” said Alexander Kozul-Wright, a commodities economist at Capital Economics.

“However,” he added, “this rally would probably be short-lived as supply networks would adjust and demand would slump in the wake of higher prices.”

The price of gold, considered a safe haven investment, reached its highest level since April 2013. The spot price of bullion hit $1,588.13 an ounce, up more than 2 percent, in early trading before coming down slightly.

Stocks also fell in financial capitals across Asia and Europe. In Tokyo, shares fell by 2 percent, while major stock markets in Hong Kong, Taipei and Seoul inched down about 1 percent or more.

Markets in Frankfurt, London, Paris and Amsterdam were all down about 1 percent.

Australia star Kerr makes incident-filled debut for Chelsea

Westlake Legal Group Sam-Kerr Australia star Kerr makes incident-filled debut for Chelsea fox-news/sports/soccer fox-news/person/sam-kerr fnc/sports fnc Associated Press article 3d971ab3-5221-5362-a7ee-d6647e643058

Sam Kerr failed to score on her debut for Chelsea in the Women’s Super League but the Australia star certainly made her presence felt on Sunday.

One of the game’s most prolific scorers, Kerr missed two great chances – the first inside the opening 90 seconds and another in the second half – but had a role in Chelsea’s first two goals in its 3-1 win over Reading.

She also was wiped out by a bruising challenge from Grace Moloney that earned the Reading goalkeeper a straight red card in the 18th minute and led to Kerr requiring treatment on her left shoulder.

Kerr’s deft backheel set up Beth England for Chelsea’s equalizer at Kingsmeadow, and she had a shot saved – after being played clean through on goal – from which Guro Reiten scored a brilliant lob off the rebound to make it 2-1.

Soon after Chelsea scored a third goal, Kerr was substituted in the 77th minute and given a warm ovation.

Kerr, who made her debut for Australia at the age of 15, joined Chelsea in November on a 2½-year contract after playing for Chicago Red Stars in the National Women’s Soccer League. She was only eligible to start playing in the second half of the WSL season from January.

Russell Wilson’s ‘Class’ Words To Eagles Coach Put Win In Perspective

Westlake Legal Group 5e132eb725000045bad31e98 Russell Wilson’s ‘Class’ Words To Eagles Coach Put Win In Perspective

Instead of just exchanging “good game” pleasantries, Wilson expressed concern for Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who left the game a few plays after a controversial but unpenalized hit from Seattle’s Jadeveon Clowney.

“Carson OK?” Wilson asked.

The brief encounter was watched by millions of fans on Twitter, many of whom applauded Wilson for a “class” move.
