Some people who have gotten booster shots are experiencing swollen lymph nodes. This is a harmless side effect, but people getting a mammogram should let someone know because it could show up and cause confusion.
The committee issued four subpoenas to Trump aides and allies at the end of last month. One of those went to Steve Bannon, who is planning to ignore it. Trump is encouraging them all to do the same, citing executive privilege.
President Biden gave the go-ahead to the National Archives to produce related documents, choosing not to assert executive privilege.
Committee leaders said in a statement: “[W]e will not allow any witness to defy a lawful subpoena or attempt to run out the clock, and we will swiftly consider advancing a criminal contempt of Congress referral.”
Islamic State affiliate IS Khorasan (ISIS-K) took responsibility for the attack, the latest in a string the terror group has launched after the Taliban took over in Afghanistan. In an official statement, ISIS-K said the bombing targeted Shiites and the Taliban for expelling Chinese Uyghurs.
The Taliban claims to have killed nine ISIS-K members and detained five more in attacks targeting ISIS-K hideouts in central Afghanistan.
The US met with senior Taliban leaders this weekend in Qatar, but the group has said that it will not work with the US to address extremism in Afghanistan.

The September jobs report was pretty disappointing in the U.S. The country added fewer jobs than expected: 194,000. Not what was needed to get to pre-pandemic levels of employment.
But the unemployment rate was better than expected! 4.8% vs. the expected 5.1%. Let’s just have that moment of happy before…
The unemployment rate was likely lower than expected because people are just plain dropping out of the workforce. And when I say people I mean (mostly) women. 309,000 women, to be exact. In September alone. WAY more than the number of new jobs added. (And most of those 194,000 new jobs went to men.)
This is both a reflection of what a mess child care is in this country–especially in pandemic times–as well as how “normal” it is for women to take the brunt of child care responsibilities vs. work.
In his speech, President Xi said: "No one should underestimate the Chinese people's staunch determination, firm will, and strong ability to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity. The historical task of the complete reunification of the motherland must be fulfilled, and will definitely be fulfilled."
Yesterday, marking Taiwan’s independence with the National Day of the Republic of China, Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen officially pushed back, saying “there should be absolutely no illusions that the Taiwanese people will bow to pressure."
Crocodiles in the Southern Pacific are not fossils stuck in the time before dinosaurs. Or maybe they are. Recent data shows that crocodiles have evolved at a high rate over the past 2 million years.
Don’t worry–modern crocodiles are not growing extra tails or sharper teeth. Their skulls are getting smaller and more similar. They are circling back to ancient times when they all looked the same.
So crocs that aren’t closely related, like the Nile crocodile in Africa and the Morelet’s croc of Central America, are almost skull twins.
This is likely not the result of peer pressure, and scientists are still studying the findings to figure out what is happening. It seems that diet, which can change nose shape over time, is likely a large factor.
Unless humans go extinct or something else drastically changes the climate, crocodiles aren’t likely to rediscover their diversity any time soon.
