Pregnant women aren't prioritized for coronavirus vaccinations, despite being a high-risk group for complications

A half-dose of Oxford-AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine initially could mean we have double the number doses available when it's approved by regulators. Siphiwe Sibeko/Pool via AP Pregnant women, particularly racial and ethnic minorities, are at increased risk for serious COVID-19 complications and death.  But they're not among prioritized populations for vaccine distribution because they've been excluded from clinical trials, which is typical of vaccine development.  Until it's known...

A Rare Trump-Era Climate Policy Hits an Obstacle: The Tax Man

WASHINGTON -- A rare policy enacted under President Donald Trump to address climate change has run into an unexpected hurdle: the tax man.In 2018, Congress approved a lucrative tax break for companies that use carbon capture technology to trap carbon dioxide produced by industrial sites before the gas escapes into the atmosphere and heats the planet.

British billionaire businessman Sanjeev Gupta will build the world's biggest battery in South Australia, officials said Friday, overtaking US star entrepreneur Elon Musk's project in the same state last year.
