However, relative to the CDC’s contemporaneously reported state-level estimates, which did not include retroactive corrections, Delphi–Facebook and Census Household Pulse overestimated CDC state-level vaccine uptake by 16 and 9 percentage points, respectively (Extended Data Fig. 1g, h) in March 2021, and by equal or larger amounts by May 2021 (Extended Data Fig. 2g, h).

Relative estimates were no better than absolute estimates in March of 2021: there is little agreement in a survey’s estimated state-level rankings with the CDC (a Kendall rank correlation of 0.31 for Delphi–Facebook in Extended Data Fig. 1i and 0.26 for Census Household Pulse in Extended Data Fig. 1j) but they improved in May of 2021 (correlations of 0.78 and 0.74, respectively, in Extended Data Fig. 2i, j).

Among 18–64-year-olds, both Delphi–Facebook and Census Household Pulse overestimate uptake, with errors increasing over time (Extended Data Fig. 6).

The ordered filament core spans residues 282–360 in the TDP-43 low-complexity domain and adopts a previously undescribed double-spiral-shaped fold, which shows no similarity to those of TDP-43 filaments formed in vitro3,4

An abundance of glycine and neutral polar residues facilitates numerous turns and restricts β-strand length, which results in an absence of β-sheet stacking that is associated with cross-β amyloid structure

An uneven distribution of residues gives rise to structurally and chemically distinct surfaces that face external densities and suggest possible ligand-binding sites

As different stages of sleep are marked by different patterns of brain waves, the researchers were able to monitor, using an electroencephalogram (EEG), when the participants drifted from the N1 stage to the deeper N2 stage.

Once the resting stage of the experiment was over, the researchers asked the participants to solve more math problems.

They recorded whether the participants showed an increase in "insight," which meant they either started solving the math problems significantly quicker or they explicitly said that they figured out the hidden rule.

“The discovery of the planet in the b Centauri system and any other future results from BEAST will provide input for planet formation theorists to refine their theories, and hopefully find the physics that allow for the wide range of planets that are observed, both around massive stars and simultaneously around more Sun-like and smaller stars,” Janson said.

From an astrobiological perspective, Janson said b Centauri is “possibly one of the worst places in the galaxy to host life.” Together, the binary pair spew enormous amounts of UV and X-ray radiation, “which would sterilize any surface that is exposed to it,” so “life on any surface in the system is certainly not very likely.” Still, Janson did not rule out the possibility that life could exist in subterranean oceans, matching ongoing speculation about basic life existing on Jupiter’s moon Europa or Saturn’s moon Enceladus.

Ultimately, the new discovery “provides us with a new important piece of the puzzle as to how planets form, which is an understanding that we need to have if we are to understand where we come from and how we fit into the universe at large,” Janson said.

Apart from CODA, which premiered at Sundance way back in January, all these films are recent fall/winter releases, including the largest crop of December titles in recent memory for a list that covers movies opening in a shortened window of 10 months (March 1-December 31, 2021) due to the pandemic and last year’s extended batch over 14 months.

Another much-buzzed Oscar contender, Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast, did not make the formal list of 10 movies due to ineligibility in terms of its foreign origins (AFI sticks to American productions) but will receive an AFI Special Award to make up for that rather glaring absence at first glance.

Searchlight’s acclaimed documentary Summer Of Soul also receives a Special Award on the movie side.

January 6 committee says it is moving forward with criminal contempt for Mark Meadows
2 mins, 22 secs

Summarize

One of the issues Meadows' lawyer raised when explaining why his client would not be cooperating with the committee is because from their perspective, the committee had formally subpoenaed the phone records of more than 100 people "without even the basic courtesy of notice to us."

Thompson responded to this complaint by saying, "contrary to your assertion, that information does not implicate privilege, but rather concerns the date, time and dialing information about calls and messages sent or received by the specific phone numbers indicated on the subpoena."

Lastly, Thompson pushed back on a claim by Meadows' attorney that previous comments made by the chairman suggest "that a witness's assertion of 5th Amendment rights is 'tantamount to an admission of guilt.'"

"That is not an accurate characterization of my position on the 5th Amendment, nor is that interpretation of my comments consistent with our discussions about the purpose of tomorrow's deposition -- i.e., a proceeding in which your client can assert privilege claims with sufficient particularity for further consideration," Thompson wrote on Wednesday.

While Meadows has not indicated he will claim 5th Amendment protections, multiple witnesses subpoenaed by the committee, including Trump ally Roger Stone and former DOJ official Jeffrey Clark, have said they intend to do so.

Meadows was first subpoenaed by the committee on September 23.
