"These conditions include, but are not limited to, strengthened screening and monitoring of participants who are at high risk of a blood clotting disorder," the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) said. SAHPRA said on Wednesday that it had recently reviewed data from Johnson & Johnson's local research study immunising healthcare workers and found no major safety concerns. South Africa suspended the rollout of the J&J vaccine in the "implementation study" on Tuesday, after U.S. health agencies recommended pausing its use because of rare cases of blood clots in six people inoculated with it, out of some 7 million people who have received the shot in the United States.
The Czech Republic's security row with Russia could influence a decision on whether Russia is invited to bid on building a new unit at the Dukovany nuclear power plant, Industry Minister Karel Havlicek told Reuters on Saturday. The Czech Republic is expelling 18 Russian diplomats over suspicions that Russian intelligence services were involved in an ammunition depot explosion in 2014. The expulsions come as the central European country looks to start a tender for the construction of a new block at majority state-owned CEZ's Dukovany plant, with the question of inviting a Russian bidder having already split lawmakers.
The Czech government said Saturday it would expel 18 Russian diplomats identified by local intelligence as secret agents of the Russian SVR and GRU services that are suspected of involvement in a 2014 explosion.

The man accused of going on a shooting rampage at a Southern California business, killing four people, should not have been allowed to buy or own guns because of a California law that prohibits people from purchasing weapons for 10 years after being convicted of a crime. Aminadab Gaxiola Gonzalez was convicted of battery in 2015, which should have kept him from possessing or buying guns or ammo at stores that conduct background checks. Police say Gaxiola had targeted Unified Homes, the mobile home brokerage company in Orange, and had personal and business relationships with the victims.

Steven Soderbergh was intentionally vague about whether nominees, presenters and guests will be wearing masks at this year’s Oscars, and that’s just one ingredient of the secret sauce that the producers are hoping will make this year’s awards show unique and unlike any awards show we’ve seen, one during a pandemic or otherwise. Soderbergh along with producers Stacey Sher and Jesse Collins for the 93rd Academy Awards discussed in a press conference Saturday how this year’s Oscars will “announce itself as being different” right from the start. And without giving away too many details, they clarified that the show will make do with “satellite hookups” in place of Zoom calls, and that by the end of the show, people “will be talking about how they made this happen.” Soderbergh said the hope for the show is to “get us out of this feeling that we’re trapped at home. We want to see something that does feel like a potential future.” Also Read: Oscars Song Contenders to Perform for Pre-Show, 'After Dark' Special Set for Post-Awards But as to the question of masks specifically, well you’ll just have to wait and see. “Masks are going to play a very important role in the story of this evening,” Soderbergh said. “If that sounds cryptic, it’s supposed to be.” There’s been some hand-wringing these last few weeks when it became clear that the Oscars would ask nominees and guests to attend the ceremony in person and that awards would not be handed out over Zoom. It led to the introduction of European hubs where international nominees could accept their prizes, and Soderbergh said simply that satellite hookups were a way for the producers to better control the image, and Zoom “doesn’t really fit” the image for what the producers are trying to achieve. That said, this introduced new technological hurdles that they’ve had to solve these last few weeks, but Soderbergh said that saying there would be no Zoom was “never about exclusion” or denying access to people who declined to attend the show. Rather, it was “about making it feel like it was part of a piece.” Also Read: Oscars: Andra Day, Maria Bakalova and More at TheWrap's Virtual Nominees Luncheon (Exclusive Photos) Collins and Sher talked about Soderbergh’s “manifesto” from the beginning of this process, and that’s culminated in the Academy touting this year’s broadcast as less of an awards show and more like a movie. They reiterated some details as to how they’ll make that a reality, including shooting in 24 fps, but also focusing on the shot composition, different over the shoulder shots and camera framings that aren’t strictly placing the person in the middle of the screen. He even touted that the work this year’s musical director, Questlove, will go a long way to making the show sound different and feel more cinematic. Sitting from the show’s space as the set is still being built, the producers touted just how beautiful a location it was and how there were no bad angles in the space. And he hopes that atmosphere will invite winners from the evening to open up and “tell a story.” “Emotion is up in your grill,” Soderbergh said. “It will be really intense.” This year’s show will bump the Oscar nominated song performances to the pre-show, which the producers said all the nominees were eager to participate in because it meant the songs could be performed in full rather than as part of a medley. Though every award will still be handed out on air, and the hope is that by the end, they’ll have provided a “template” for how other awards shows and film productions can hope to return to work. Also Read: Why Oscars Remain Big Money for ABC Despite Expected Record-Low Audience “People will see this show and feel like this is possible.” The producers were also asked about the decision way back last year to delay the Oscars by two months, and they agreed that what they’re doing today would have been “impossible” had they not made the shift. But because COVID is still a reality, they’re still cognizant of capacity issues and keeping the show safe, even if that means heavy hitters who usually are staples of the show won’t be invited. “Bog Iger won’t be there,” Soderbergh said, explaining the decision to limit the Oscars to just nominees, plus ones and the show’s presenters, and how even getting those people to the show has been an ever-evolving process. “It’s like building a plane while it’s in the air.” Throughout Saturday’s press conference, Soderbergh, Sher and Collins reiterated that next Sunday’s show will be an “optimistic” occasion and a celebration of movies, but it’s clear they’re taking chances we’ve never seen from an Academy Awards before. “It opened up an opportunity to try some things that haven’t been tried before,” Soderbergh said. “We want the show to have a voice.” The Oscars air on ABC on April 25.

SEVILLE, Spain (Reuters) -Lionel Messi scored twice as Barcelona thrashed Athletic Bilbao 4-0 in the Copa del Rey final on Saturday to win the trophy for a record-extending 31st time with all the goals coming in the last half an hour.

Messi suffered some rough tackles from Athletic but got his revenge with a spectacular goal in the 68th, tearing his way through the defence down the right wing and combining with De Jong before dancing around another defender to slot home.
The coronavirus pandemic and a trio of new producers have led to a reinvention of the traditional show where the world's highest movie honors are handed out before a seated theater audience of more than 4,000 A-list stars and industry executives. Much of the April 25 ceremony will instead be held at the Art Deco Union Station in downtown Los Angeles, where a stage is being built and where presenters will be doing more than opening an envelope with the winner's name. "It's not going to be like anything that's been done before," director Steven Soderbergh, who is producing the show with Stacey Sher and Jesse Collins, told a news conference.
Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss has dropped his bid for Tribune Publishing after his associates did due diligence by examining its finances, according to a report in The New York Times. According to the report, Wyss, who is a medical device manufacturer, “had come to believe it would be difficult for him to realize his ambition of transforming The Chicago Tribune — the company’s flagship paper and the one he was most interested in — into a national publication.” Hotel magnate Stewart Bainum Jr. is said to still be committed to making a bid for the whole publisher that would exceed the offer from hedge fund Alden Global Capital and is currently searching for alternative financing.

Under the agreement, Alden, which already owns about 32% of Tribune’s shares, will acquire the remaining shares it doesn’t already own for $17.25 per share. The Baltimore Sun will not be part of the acquisition and will instead be sold to Sunlight for All Institute, a nonprofit formed by Bainum. After the deal is closed, which is expected to happen in the second quarter of 2021, Tribune Publishing will become a privately held company.
