"Ten 53, next year, the U.S. will have a record number of female governors, 12 female governors of Maine, Alabama, Michigan, Iowa, South Dakota, Kansas, and New Mexico were all reelected on Tuesday. New York governor Kathy hochul becomes the first elected female governor of that state. Republican Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a former White House press secretary in the Trump administration, becomes the first female governor of Arkansas winning the job that her father once held. It's going to be a cold weekend, and you should prepare to take care of your body, both inside and out. Picking the right product. So ingredients are certainly important. Doctor Adam Friedman, George Washington University school of medicine. Look for an ointment or cream that has either jojoba oil, dimethicone, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, or lactic acid, to get the most out of it. The most important thing, however, is to apply to damp skin. As for what you put in your body, foods that are high on what's called the glycemic index that have a lot of sugar can create inflammation in your body and skin, leading to drier, more painful and itchy skin.

"The top stories we're following on double TOP, Nicole has weakened to a tropical storm now after making landfall along Florida's east coast early this morning as a category one hurricane. Airports and theme parks are closed, evacuations have been underway since yesterday. The storm is expected to move into southern Georgia today and into the Carolinas tomorrow. Governor Larry Hogan will meet with governor elect westmore today at the Maryland state House to talk about the transition. Meantime ballot counting resumes today in Maryland 6 congressional district where Republican Neil parrot maintains a 51 to 49% lead over incumbent Democrat David trone. The Labor Department is expected to report today that consumer prices jumped 8% from a year ago, and that means the Federal Reserve will have no incentive to ease up on its drive to slow price increases by steadily raising interest rates. A separate measure called core inflation which excludes volatile food and energy costs is expected to have surged 6 and a half percent over the past year. Stay with WTO for more on these stories in just minutes. A study of 72 school districts in the Boston area has found that mask mandates are linked with significantly reduced numbers of coronavirus infections among students. The New York Times reports infection rates were lower among masked students, even older public schools in low income communities than among unmasked students attending newer schools in higher income areas. The study was conducted by Harvard school of public health, Massachusetts general hospital, the Boston University school of public health, and Boston's public health commission. It was published in the New England New England Journal of Medicine. It's 7 18. Traffic and weather on the 8s and turning back over to Jack and the traffic center. All right, Jen, we'll start again with our closure of the Baltimore Washington Parkway going northbound beyond route 32 before one 75 there was an overnight serious crash the investigation is ongoing all traffic on the bottom of Washington Parkway north has the option early to jump off at one 98, but you will be taken off at route 32. You can get back on at one 75, you'll be beyond all the activity. Southbound rubber necking still with us, but you're traveling are available. The closure northbound is till further notice. 95 running a little heavier now through Laurel, headed northbound, possibly avoidance traffic riding up toward route 100 into Hanover. Again, avoidance traffic. A little bit of a delay riding in Odin tin going 32 west, as you head down toward fort Meade, look for delays on 50, going westbound, inside the beltway, just into Chevrolet. We'd been a little bit slow on the beltway, top side outer loop after 95 toward Georgia avenue, inner loop, you'll line up at saint Barnabas road, headed down toward the Wilson bridge. Very slow as you make the trip still on the southbound stretch of two 70, first right there at route 80, but then a bigger delay in Germantown, when south and middlebrook road, it's getting a little bit better toward three 70. There was a wrecking lothian, northbound route four, just after bayfront road, Maryland two 58. It had been just the right lane getting by, the delays easing back a bit, maybe the crash is clearing. The wreck coming out of Virginia in the Springfield interchanges on the inner loop after the Robinson terminal well before, Braddock wrote everything's over on the left, shoulder, 66, still heavy, eastbound and manassas, then again, fairfax county Parkway toward 50, 95, we'd had a little delay in a choir going north, then you're delayed again Dale City and woodbridge and slowing through lorton, riding into the Springfield interchange, slowly onto the inner loop of the beltway.

"Great. Thanks so much. We are more than two and a half years into the COVID-19 pandemic. And there's a great deal that we still don't understand about the virus and how it changes over time. So it's of little surprise that academic labs across the world are actively studying the virus. That's certainly true, but one research project out of Boston University became subject to criticism this week after the team published a preprint on a hybrid version of SARS CoV-2, it had created that was more lethal to lab mice than the omicron strand. On top of that, there's this whole question whether the project got the proper sign off from federal officials. So stat senior writer Helen branswell has, as usual, given her expert insight into the uproar and she is here with us now to break down the situation, Helen, welcome back to the podcast. Hi folks, glad to be here. So Helen, the initial, I guess somewhat misleading headline that I think it came out in the UK press. That kicked off this whole incident was that the hybrid COVID-19 virus that these researchers had created killed 80% of mice in a lab experiment. So put that into context for us, what exactly was created in Boston University's lab and what did they find? Yeah, so that story was in the British tabloid the daily mail, a bastion of science reported. They took a break from curing Alzheimer's and cancer to report on this, I think. And from making the lives of the royal family miserable. Yeah, so they had spotted this pre print that had been posted by scientists from the from Boston University that did report on work on a hybrid. SARS two virus that contained the omicron spike protein on a backbone of the original SARS virus, the Wuhan strain. And what these folks were trying to do was try to figure out what is responsible for pathogenicity with these viruses. Like what parts of the virus are triggering pathogenicity. The omicron spike has tons of mutations. This work was going to help them look at whether or not omicron lesser severity in people was caused by these mutations. What they found when they tested this hybrid or chimeric virus in mice was that it was actually more lethal to the mice, than omicron was. But it was less lethal to the mice than the original Wuhan strain. And that latter part that it was less lethal than the original Wuhan strain was kind of left off the left out of the story, or at least out of the headline, right? And that's kind of created some of the uproar. Yeah, certainly. It was, it wasn't played up. The other thing that wasn't played up is that these mice are sort of exquisitely. Formulated to be very sensitive to the SARS two virus. They have all sorts of ACE2 receptors all over them, which is the receptor that this virus uses to attach to cells. And so. It makes them useful for studying things, but it doesn't recapitulate what happens in people. When you think about it, a 100% of the mice died when they were infected with the original strain of SARS two. That's not what happens to humans who were infected with the original strain of SARS two. The infection fatality rate in people was under 1%. So, you know, the fact that. 80 percent of these mice died doesn't tell us that this was a Frankenstein virus that was going to destroy all of mankind. This clearly inflamed some sort of fear that is out there around more dangerous pathogens being created in laboratories across the world. And I don't want us to go down the rabbit hole of the COVID-19 origin debate in Wuhan, but why do you think that this experiment at BU garnered so much attention knowing what we know about how it this strain compares to the original Wuhan strain? Well, you know, the gain of function debate goes back much further than the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic about a decade ago. It became very inflamed when a couple of very highly respected research groups, one in the Netherlands, one of the university of Wisconsin, we're trying to publish some work looking at H 5 N one bird flu viruses and what might make them become more transmissible among people. There was a big objection over whether or not that work should be published. The feeling was that it was, it could be used, was dual use research that it could be used for by publishing it effectively, you could be giving bad actors a recipe for creating a pandemic virus of incredible danger and so that debate has percolated ever since. The national Institutes of health came up with a policy of framework document for how work that could potentially make pathogens more dangerous should be conducted that framework requires groups that are planning to do this kind of work with NIH money to get it cleared by the Department of Health and Human Services first. The important part of that is that we're talking about research that's being done with NIH money. And on Monday, when the daily mail story came out, it wasn't terribly clear whether or not this work had been done with NIH money. So what have we learned in the days since that initial reaction, both in terms of whether this was done with NIH money and also what the fallout has been? So on Tuesday, I managed to speak to Ron corley the director of the BU lab where this work was done. And he explained that the BU team didn't go to NIH for their approval to do the work because this work was not done with NIH money. Some of the grant money that they received from the NIH was used for some stuff that you might consider sort of foundational to this work, but it wasn't exclusive for doing this work. This work itself was funded by the university and was cleared by the universities review committees and by the Boston public health commission.

A 12 year old girl went to police and reported a man yelled at her through his car window, repeatedly trying to get her into his vehicle.

Businesses all over the country are weighing in on the president's broad new vaccine rules. Any business with more than 100 employees will have to mandate covid vaccines or weekly testing. NBC's today gets reaction from one hotel in New Mexico Black is the general manager of La Fonda on the Plaza Hotel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. He estimates about 85% of his staff are fully vaccinated. He says. The federal vaccine mandate takes the pressure off getting shots in the other 15%. I think they'll be broad acceptance and approval. All of this going across when I was a little worried If I mandate it, just for my hotel, say, I don't want to get a vaccine. They would go to my competition, so this mandate will help us across the board as many as 100 Million Americans could be affected by the rules, but it's unclear how many of those are unvaccinated Todd Aunt, ABC News, Another virus has stayed health officials on alert.
