World AIDS Day to be recognized by several Las Vegas properties

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Several Las Vegas properties will go red Tuesday night in honor of World AIDS Day -- a day set aside to honor those affected by HIV/AIDS.

“Though great advances in treatment options have prolonged and improved people’s lives, every day at least one person is diagnosed with HIV in Southern Nevada.

Supreme Court to weigh Trump bid in census case

WASHINGTON (Reuters) — The Supreme Court on Monday is set to take up President Donald Trump's unprecedented effort to exclude immigrants living in the country illegally from the population totals used to divvy up congressional seats.

The challengers to Trump's July directive include various states led by New York, cities, counties and immigrant rights groups. They have argued that the Republican president's move could leave several million people uncounted and cause California, Texas and New Jersey to lose House seats, which are based on a state's population count in the decennial census.

Since first emerging nearly a year ago in China, the virus has killed more than 1.4 million people worldwide.

Moderna is just behind Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech in seeking to begin vaccinations in the U.S. in December. Across the Atlantic, British regulators also are assessing the Pfizer shot and another from AstraZeneca... Read More
