S.Korea's beaches face threat from development, rising seas

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2021, our list of ideas, by topic, by recipient and by price, to help you discover the perfect gift.

Black Friday isn’t just one day — it’s a season, and that season seems to arrive earlier and earlier each year. Retailers such as Target, Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart and others have already outlined their full plans for sales and deals for the big Black Friday event. That includes massive price cuts on favorites including Apple devices, Sony and Bose headphones, and we’ve even got details on when we can expect online availability of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S. Thanks to retailers announcing their discounts either online or or through more classic newspaper circulars, we now know some hard dates: 

Pfizer’s vaccine for kids is one-third of a regular dose, a slightly different formula and given with a smaller needle. It was authorized by the US Food and Drug Administration last week after data showing an encouraging safety profile and high effectiveness (90.7%) was reviewed by an independent committee for the FDA. In an ongoing trial that tested the vaccine in about 3,100 children ages 5 to 11, no serious side effects were reported. 

Early development plans lacked environmental protections, and the Coast Management Act of 1999 failed to protect shorelines, unlike tighter measures imposed in places like the United States and Japan, said Kim In-ho, a professor who has been leading Gangwon province’s survey.

Should I worry about myocarditis?  Myocarditis and pericarditis, or inflammation of the heart muscle, is an uncommon side effect linked to the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines and is mostly seen in adolescent males and men under 30. After looking at data and weighing the risks of vaccination and benefits of protection from COVID-19, the CDC still recommends everyone, including children as young as 5, get vaccinated. 

Research by packaging retailer RAJA UK revealed that 35% of Brits found decluttering their home to be a therapeutic experience – and one that can help people feel more at easy during the chaos in December.  

When will kids be able to get a COVID-19 vaccine? Now that both the FDA and CDC have signed off on COVID-19 shots for kids ages 5 to 11, children in that age group can get vaccinated. It may have taken a few days for your local pharmacy or health clinic to get Pfizer’s vaccine for kids in stock, however, because it’s different from Pfizer’s vaccine for everyone else (more on that below). However, this week was the deadline from the White House to have the program “fully up and running,” so the vaccine should be widely available to kids ages 5 to 11 right now. 

Sacheonjin, in the eastern Gangwon province, is one of 43 such beaches designated as having “serious” coastal erosion as of 2020, up from 12 in 2018, according to a survey of 250 beaches by the oceans and fisheries ministry.

Another 15,000 migrants are thought to be in Belarus and heading for the border, having been brought in from the Middle East to flood into Europe by president Alexander Lukashenko in revenge for EU sanctions

Prior to the CDC’s official recommendation, experts that give guidance to the agency and vote on whether to recommend vaccines discussed the risks versus benefits for children as young as 5 years old. Although they do not have data to show the absolute risk of myocarditis for kids ages 5 to 11 (drug trials of all kinds may not always pick up on rare side effects, because it sometimes takes hundreds of thousands of people for one to show up), experts noted that baseline myocarditis is much lower in kids ages 5 to 11 than other groups. By contrast, they have a much higher risk of MIS-C, a potentially serious complication of COVID-19. 

Kids age 12 and up have been eligible for Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine for a while. The other mRNA vaccine, Moderna, and the only single-dose vaccine on the US market, Johnson & Johnson, aren’t available to kids yet.

“Spikes in on-chain profit-taking during bullish impulses are to be expected as price climbs to new highs, and are typical for any bull market. As the realization of profits increase, so too does the probability of establishing a macro top,” Glassnode said.

However, if you have a teenager or child old enough to express a desire to get a COVID-19 vaccine and you haven’t given consent, they may have legal precedent to seek one out, depending on which state you live in.

There are also racial disparities in how sick children get from COVID-19. Children ages 5 to 11 who are Black, Native American or Hispanic are three times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19 than white children, according to the presentation. Of children ages 5 to 11 hospitalized with COVID-19, about one in three will require an ICU admission.
