Report Claims Huawei Finance Chief Meng Wanzhou Could Be Set Free In Exchange of Admitting Guilt

Shortly after that arrest, Canadians Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor were detained in China, where they remain in detention and face charges of spying for Canada.

The report also says the proposed deal could pave the way for China to return Kovrig and Spavor, which is a factor that is in part motivating the discussions, according to the paper's sources.

In a report in the Wall Street Journal -- which CBC had not independently verified -- sources say the agreement with Meng would require her to admit to criminal wrongdoing.

The newspaper reports that if she does that, U.S. prosecutors would defer the charges against her, and could even drop them at a later date.

How safe are the new COVID-19 vaccines

Offit added, "What you're going to be able to say now, when these vaccines roll out, is you're going to be able to say that, at least in tens of thousands of people, there were no uncommon serious side effects that were seen within two months of getting a dose."

'Very reassured' Offit said skyscraper-high reams of documents tend to be generated during clinical trials, and the FDA advisory board painstakingly reviews all that data before recommending vaccine approval.

Offit is a member of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration advisory board that will review the clinical trial data for both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines within the next two weeks.

Average folks can take comfort from the safety data that's already been gathered in clinical trials, and additional data expected to pour in from millions more people participating in the earliest waves of COVID-19 vaccine distribution, said Dr. Paul Offit.

Lucas died on October 29 in hospital because of “catastrophic” head injuries, the court was told.When hospital staff told the family the baby died because of “non-accidental” injuries, McDonald said nothing.

McDonald lied to a doctor at the intensive care unit about what happened and instead claimed the baby appeared “pale, breathing very quietly” after a routine medical check-up.

When the child’s mum Samantha Duckmanton heard her baby’s piercing cry she checked on him, but McDonald said the cry happened because he was “swaddling him”.

COVID-19 vaccine efficacy depends on distribution, public confidence, experts say

Although clinical trials to date indicate both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are up to 95% effective at preventing new COVID-19 infections, with few side effects, questions remain about how long the immunity will last.

The key will be taking steps to work with community leaders and health officials to build trust and educate the public on what to expect in terms of vaccine safety and effectiveness, Yamey and others said.

Dec. 3 (UPI) -- The effectiveness of new vaccines developed to prevent COVID-19 likely depends on how well they are distributed and the degree to which the public is willing to take them, public health experts from Johns Hopkins University and Duke University said Thursday.

More than 80% of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine doses "have already been purchased by rich nations," Yamey, professor of practice, global health and public policy at Duke, said during a call with reporters Thursday.

The UK has approved a COVID-19 vaccine, but the US is still waiting. Here's why.

The MHRA reviewed data from the laboratory preclinical studies, clinical trials, manufacturing and quality controls, product sampling, and testing of the final vaccine, the UK government said.

Though the UK approval process has been faster, the UK regulator remains confident it has fully assessed the vaccine.

The FDA and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, the UK regulator, have different processes to review vaccines, Dr. Penny Ward, a visiting professor in pharmaceutical medicine at King's College London, told The New York Times.

The UK has approved the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech — but regulators in the US are yet to make a decision.

The UK approved Pfizer and BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine Wednesday morning, making it the first Western country to authorize a shot against the virus.

BuzzFeed News has separately been pursuing other Freedom of Information Act lawsuits related to the special counsel office’s activities, obliging the government to release a significant volume of other documents.

Despite that record, Trump has consistently tried to discredit the work of the special counsel, which he has frequently dismissed as a “witch hunt,” and excoriated Mueller and prosecutors, declaring them to be "angry Democrats."

The documents have shown what hundreds of people told the special counsel’s office during its inquiry into Russian interference in the presidential election and Trump’s alleged attempts to obstruct justice.

The final batch of summaries of interviews conducted for former special counsel Robert Mueller's two-year criminal investigation into the 2016 election has been released by the government six weeks before President Donald Trump is set to leave office.

Social media must prepare for flood of Covid-19 vaccine misinformation

Some social networks have already put policies in place specifically against Covid-19 vaccine misinformation; others are still deciding on the best approach or are leaning on existing policies for Covid-19 and vaccine-related content.

(CNN Business) Nearly two years ago, public health experts blamed social media platforms for contributing to a measles outbreak by allowing false claims about the risks of vaccines to spread.

"We allow content that discusses Covid-19 related studies and vaccine trials, but we will remove claims that there is a safe and effective vaccine for Covid-19 until global health authorities approve such a vaccine," a Facebook spokesperson said.

In October, YouTube updated its policies to include removing videos that contain misinformation about Covid-19 vaccines, such as any claims that go against expert consensus from local health officials or the World Health Organization.

TikTok said it removes misinformation related to Covid-19 and vaccines, including anti-vaccine content.

The Curious Origins of the AK-12 Rifle

The heart of the new AK-12 is practically unchanged from the first AKs that rolled off the production line in the 1940s: it features largely the same fire control group, long-stroke gas operation and rotating two-lugged bolt.

They also have spawned the AK-200 series for export, which incorporates many ergonomic features and the fixed picatinny dust cover from the AK-400 modernization but retains the gas system and barrel setup of the AK-100 rifles.

Even then, the VDV and marines preferred the AK-12 in trials as the ZiD rifles were found to expel too much gas during firing, disrupting the shooter’s vision.

Under this new leadership, development was halted of the clean slate AK-12 and development began of a more traditional modernization of the AK rifles, under the name AK-400.

The simple, old-school diet that still works

Ice cream is, though, and one study gave subjects snacks of low-fat or full-fat ice cream, thereby varying the energy density but not the volume (the inverse of the Wheaties study).

And, according to Rolls, the upshot is that people eat fewer calories of the less-dense food, and they don't tend to make it up later.

Out in the real world, there's some evidence that people who eat diets low in energy density take in fewer calories (and also lose more weight in diet trials), but it's hard to draw conclusions from that.

How to make foods less calorie-dense I like energy density because it's the Unitarianism of diets.

Almost regardless of how you're eating – low-carb, keto, low-fat, paleo – you can focus on whichever foods in those diets are low in calorie density.
