Public health officials and drugmakers must be transparent about the side effects people may experience after getting their first shot of a coronavirus vaccine, doctors urged during a meeting Monday with CDC advisors as states prepare to distribute doses as early as next month.

Dr. Sandra Fryhofer of the American Medical Association noted that both Pfizer’s and Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccines require two doses at varying intervals. As a practicing physician, she said she worries whether her patients will come back for a second dose because of the potentially unpleasant side effects they may experience after the first shot.

“We really need to make patients aware that this is not going to be a walk in the park,”

“Avengers” star Anthony Mackie will star in and produce an action film at Netflix called “The Ogun” that will find him traversing the criminal underground in Nigeria to rescue his kidnapped daughter.

Mackie will produce and star in the film from Madison Turner, a former stuntman-turned-screenwriter. No director has been set on the film.

Mackie plays Xavier Rhodes (not the NFL defensive star) in “The Ogun,” a man who brings his teenage daughter to Nigeria to find a cure for the rare genetic condition that he passed on to her. But when his daughter is kidnapped, Rhodes goes on a rampage through the criminal underworld to find her before it’s too late, testing his powers to the limit.

Bad Bunny Has Coronavirus

How else to say it? Bad Bunny has coronavirus. His rep confirmed the news on Monday, just a day after the reggaeton star won favorite male Latin artist and favorite Latin album at Sunday night’s American Music Awards, recognitions he accepted remotely.

Bad Bunny was also supposed to perform live at the award show, but ended up canceling “without explanation,” according to the Associated Press. Now we know!

His publicist says he’s symptom-free as of Monday, but that’s all the information we haves so far. It goes without saying that we hope Bad Bunny gets well soon and that his weeks in quarantine pass quickly. He was generous enough to give us two albums this year (and a crocs collab!), so karma is definitely on his side.


This is definitely a thirst trap, but is it

What is N.J.’ s favorite Thanksgiving pie? Social media takes a stab at the answer.

Americans will sit down to tables of pumpkin, apple and pecan pie this Thanksgiving, but that’s not all.

It seems that each state, or at least each region, has their local favorites that go beyond the usual fall harvest.

Instagram recently tried to take a cross-section — a slice, if you will — of the nation’s current pie preferences by tracking mentions and “likes” of various pie flavors over Instagram feeds and stories for the past month.

While by no means an accurate predictor of Thanksgiving pie choices — it’s not clear if the “pie flavors” being tracked were merely mentions of these fruits/foods alone — Instagram’s map, like all such dubious holiday food maps, whets the appetite for the home feasts to come.

The overall victor? It might be something of a surprise, but it’s one with a New Jersey connection:

Cranberry pie.

This type of pie drew the

ABC’s Stephanopoulos wants Trump revenge

This week’s Liberal Media Scream finds that the elites are looking for a little Trump revenge.

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Sunday advanced the liberal quest to further politicize political differences by holding Trump administration officials “accountable” for “wrongdoing.”

On his show, he pressed Joe Biden’s chief of staff Ron Klain about “criminality” during President Trump’s years. Stephanopoulos noted that Biden “has expressed a preference that he doesn’t want his presidency consumed by Trump investigations” but pointed out “that has raised some concerns” with Democrats.

He quoted a congressman’s claim that not holding Trump officials accountable “emboldens criminality by our national leaders” and enables “lawlessness and authoritarianism.” Stephanopoulos then asked: “How do you balance moving forward with getting accountability?”

From ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos:

“There’s going to be some tension between getting unity, getting things done, working with the Republicans, and investigating any wrongdoing that occurred during the

Click here to read the full article.

A recent movement toward unionization by workers at media brands and cultural institutions continued today as staffers at Film at Lincoln Center voted 29 to 4 in favor of forming a guild.

The National Labor Relations Board election included workers in film programming, development, communications and public-facing theater operations.

According to a news release from organizers, four additional employee ballots were set aside due to eligibility questions. The ballots remain unopened and their status will be resolved at a later date.

Film at Lincoln Center recently wrapped up a singular version of its annual New York Film Festival, which conducted screenings online and at drive-in locations outside of Manhattan due to COVID-19 precautions. The pandemic has forced all of Lincoln Center’s tenants to shut their doors in a devastating blow to their finances. In addition to its repertory houses, FLC has also derived

Mark Ruffalo is Ryan Reynolds’ dad (in a Netflix movie about time travel)

It’s been months since we heard about Ryan Reynolds’ time travel movie for Netflix, which we learned back in April will be about a guy who goes back in time to stop some villain, interacting with both himself as a teenager and his now-deceased father along the way, and now The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop on the rest of the film’s surprisingly famous cast. For starters, Mark Ruffalo will be playing Reynolds’ father, a “brilliant physicist” of some kind, with a kid named Walker Scobell playing young Reynolds in what is apparently his “first professional gig.”

Catherine Keener will also be there, playing a bad guy who stole “powerful technology” from Papa Ruffalo, with Alex Mallari Jr. playing her villainous sidekick. Zoe Saldana and Jennifer Garner will also be there, but THR doesn’t say who they’ll be playing. Maybe regular-age versions

Greek newspaper likens Pfizer’s Jewish CEO with the Nazi doctor Mengele

 A Greek newspaper whose publisher was convicted recently of antisemitic defamation warned its readers that Pfizer’s Jewish CEO will “stick the needle” into them while calling the pharmaceutical company’s prospective COVID-19 vaccine “poison.”

The front-page article, with graphics including a picture of Albert Bourla and the Nazi war criminal Dr. Josef Mengele, appeared Tuesday in the daily Makeleio. Its publisher, Stefanos Chios, was fined $2,200 fine last month for an op-ed in which he called a former leader of the Athens Jewish community a “crude Jew who runs a loan-shark firm.”

Bourla, a Greek Jew from Thessaloniki, also is a veterinarian.

“A Jewish veterinarian will stick the needle! Terror countdown for the mandatory vaccine,” read the article, which also defined the vaccine as “poison.”

Mengele was infamous for experiments performed on concentration camp inmates.

On Monday, the New York-based Pfizer announced that it has developed a vaccine for the coronavirus

Wolverine’s Arrival Teased in Bosslogic’s Deadpool 3 Fan Poster

After much speculation and an abundance of rumors, it was confirmed last week that Deadpool 3 is officially happening at Disney with Ryan Reynolds returning as the iconic Merc with the Mouth Wade Wilson. New writers are on board for the project, and some fans are really hoping that this movie will bring Wolverine into the fold. Though whether that is Hugh Jackman returning from his self-imposed Logan retirement or a new MCU actor being introduced is too far off in the hypothetical future to consider. That hasn’t stopped artist extraordinaire BossLogic from creating a new teaser poster for Deadpool 3 which definitely hints at Wolverine’s presence.

Starting out as a fan artist, BossLogic has gone onto much acclaim in recent years, and has even created official posters for the MCU. So there is an air of legitimacy behind this latest one-sheet which depicts a world where Wolverine and Deadpool
