    Eiza Gonzalez and Paul Rabil make romance Instagram official | Leisure

    Eiza Gonzalez made her relationship with Paul Rabil official on Instagram.

    The “Baby Driver” actress, who previously dated Liam Hemsworth and Timothee Chalamet, has been meeting the professional lacrosse player for over a month now.

    And over the weekend, the 31-year-old star congratulated her husband on his successful game and raved about how much she loves him.

    She wrote in her Instagram story: “Congratulations to the lacrosse [goat] on the nomination as the all-time leader with the most points / goals in pro lacrosse history !!

    “I love you [Paul]. Nobody works harder than you. “

    Eiza has been helping Paul, 35, at work and was recently spotted at a training camp for his team, the Boston Cannons.

    A source said at the time, “They went to training camp together in Massachusetts for breakfast because he had a game the next day.”

    They were also spotted together in Los Angeles last month visiting the Plant Food + Wine restaurant in Venice.

    Rabil divorced his lacrosse colleague Kelly Berger in 2017 after three years of marriage.

    Eiza, who also dated model Dusty Lachowicz in December and Josh Duhamel in 2018, recently announced that she had turned down a vacation opportunity to star in Hobbs & Shaw.

    The actress plays Madame M / Margarita in the spin-off film “Fast & Furious” and was grateful to be able to star in both the action film and the monster film “Godzilla vs. Kong”.

    Eiza said, “When I was doing Bloodshot I got a call and I was just being offered both Hobbs & Shaw and Godzilla vs. Kong. It was the same week, at the same time! And I really wanted to do both do, but they’d have an appointment conflict because the characters needed more time (for) both of them.

    “Dwayne (Johnson) and his team were so amazing because they said, ‘We really like her. We really want her to be in the movie. How do we do it?’

    “So they worked on my ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ plan, which basically consisted of moving from place to place, from Hawaii to Australia. And I said, ‘I’m ready not to have a vacation’ I remember thinking, ‘I’m ready not to have a vacation if I can do that.’ “

    Former Obama, Clinton official quits as Teneo CEO after drunken conduct at occasion

    Teneo CEO Declan Kelly speaks on stage during Global Citizen Presents Global Goal Live: The Possible Dream at St. Ann’s Warehouse on September 26, 2019 in New York City.

    The CEO of leading PR and consulting firm Teneo, who previously served as special envoy for Northern Ireland under the then Foreign Secretary Hillary Clinton, resigned Tuesday after the aftermath of his drunken behavior last month at a high profile charity event.

    Declan Kelly’s embarrassing departure came days later General Motors broke up with Teneo because of his behavior and resigned weeks after he stepped down from the board of directors of the nonprofit group Global Citizen that hosted the May 2 event in question.

    General Motors was a customer of Teneo, a 1,200-strong company co-founded by Doug Band, a former advisor to the ex-president Bill Clinton.

    Besides working for GM, The Teneo reportedly paid an amount of $ 250,000 per month, Kelly has also acted as a consultant for General electrics and coke.

    Kelly, who also chaired Teneo, is the brother of Alan Kelly, the leader of the Labor Party in Ireland.

    Declan Kelly, who previously worked as a reporter for several newspapers in Ireland, served Hillary Clinton as Special Envoy for Economics from 2009 to 2011 when she headed the State Department under former President Barack Obama. Kelly had also served as an advisor to Clinton during her 2008 presidential campaign.

    The Wall Street Journal reported last Friday that Kelly’s agent said the PR manager was “intoxicated and behaved inappropriately toward some women and men” at the Global Citizen event.

    president Joe Biden had made a video appearance at the event, chaired by Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle. Pope Francis also delivered a message to the congregation.

    “Since the event two months ago, Mr. Kelly has made an immediate sobriety, provides ongoing medical professional advice and has temporarily reduced his job responsibilities,” his representative said, according to the Journal.

    “He has the full support of his family, colleagues, partners and friends.”

    This wasn’t Kelly’s first embarrassing public episode.

    Kelly was previously seen sleeping with his mouth open in a social media video in the first quarter of the Super Bowl in February 2020 in the stands of Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

    This viral video came on for eight months after Teneo sold a slight majority stake in CVC Capital Partners in a deal that valued Teneo at more than $ 700 million.

    CNBC policy

    Read more about CNBC’s political coverage:

    In his own statement on Teneo’s website Kelly said, “On May 2nd, I made an unintentional, public, and embarrassing mistake for which I took full responsibility and apologized to those directly affected and to my colleagues and clients.”

    “A campaign against our company’s reputation has followed and may continue in the coming days,” said Kelly. “However, I do not want these matters, regardless of the correctness of such matters, to continually distract the conduct of our company.”

    “To protect Teneo’s employees and customers, and with the strong support of my family, I have decided to leave the company and step down as chairman and CEO,” said Kelly.

    Teneo’s board of directors has named another co-founder of the company, Chief Operating Officer Paul Keary, to succeed Kelly as chief executive officer.

    “We would like to thank Declan for his leadership and dedication over the past decade in building Teneo into the world’s leading consulting firm for CEOs,” the company said in a statement.

    “Today, thanks to Declan’s leadership and the efforts of its excellent management team, Teneo serves the world’s leading companies with a large number of experienced consultants in a range of disciplines.”

    Paul Mescal has officially announced with Phoebe Bridgers.

    The “common people” star took his girlfriend from the US for a romantic weekend in East London and confirmed that he is officially off the market.

    A source spent a holiday weekend in London with The Sun in an odd column: “Paul and Phoebe were in Shoreditch and they looked very handsome.

    Last August, a source claimed Paul was “engaged” to Phoebe.

    The insider said:

    The alleged couple met in May when a 24-year-old actor took part in Phoebe’s Instagram live podcast. Paul and the 25-year-old singer stayed with Zoom after the live, where they drank together for several hours.

    The actor reportedly joined Raya last month, where he also used Phoebe’s song “I Know The End” on his profile.

    Sources said at the time, “Paul became so famous for his lockdown that at the time almost any woman he wanted could have. He knew he would soon be recognized on a regular dating app. So I turned to a more exclusive and understated Raya.

    “He was invited by one of his new celebrity friends and had to sign up before opening an account, but he has a lot of lovely people.”

    Former HHS official applauds ‘data-driven’ easing of CDC masks steering

    Former health and social worker Dr. Mario Ramirez cheered President Joe BidenSupporting the masking of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Updates on Tuesday.

    “I think the president made the right point today, namely that today’s guidance is not about politics, but rather a data-driven recommendation based on how these vaccines behave in the wild,” said Ramirez.

    The CDC said fully vaccinated people can exercise and participate small outdoor gatherings to wear without a face mask. Biden The new recommendations underscore the progress the US has made in the fight against Covid.

    Ramirez, a former HHS Pandemic and Emerging Threat Coordinator in the Office of Global Affairs, told CNBCs “The News with Shepard Smith” While the US is leaning in the right direction on vaccination, officials must run an “persistent messaging campaign” to convince skeptical Americans to vaccinate.

    In the United States, 232 million vaccine shots were reportedly put into guns CDC data43% of the total population received at least one dose, and nearly 20% of the country is fully vaccinated.

    “One of the things we’re looking forward to this fall is whether vaccine makers can actually pool a flu and a coronavirus vaccine together. If we can, it will go a long way toward improving vaccine uptake,” he said Ramirez.

    Deshaun Watson’s first official response calls the lawsuits towards him a “cash seize”

    Getty Images

    The battle was joined.

    After weeks of press conferences and attorney’s statements, and a skirmish over whether plaintiffs would go on their own behalf (they are now) in cases alleging wrongdoing during massage sessions, Texan’s quarterback Deshaun Watson filed a formal response to the first lawsuit filed against him last month. The document filed by Watson’s attorney in the case filed by Ashley Solis calls the entire effort a “money robbery.”

    The document, entitled “Deshaun Watson’s Original Answer,” appears to have been written much more for the media than for the court. The first page summarizes alleged facts that Watson’s attorneys have learned since receiving the plaintiffs’ names. Watson alleges through his attorneys that: (1) eight of the plaintiffs “boasted, praised, and were excited about massaging Watson”; (2) seven of the plaintiffs “worked willingly or offered to work with Watson”, “after their alleged incidents”; (3) three plaintiffs “lied about the number of meetings they actually had” with Watson; (4) five plaintiffs “lied about their alleged trauma and the damage it caused”; (4) Five plaintiffs told others they wanted to get money out of Watson. and (5) five plaintiffs “cleaned or completely deleted their social media accounts”.

    At the top of page 2 of the document is the claim: “It was only when plaintiffs saw an opportunity to rob money that they changed their stories to turn therapy sessions they bragged about into something much more nefarious.” the document claims that the characterizations of Watson’s behavior range “from misleading to fraudulent to defamatory”.

    The document paints all of the plaintiffs with this brush, claiming that they are all working to secure money from Watson. The document also lists specific issues with numerous plaintiffs’ allegations on pages 3 through 5, although the document was filed in a case that is only relevant to the Ashley Solis allegations.

    With regard to their allegations, the document relies solely on a “general disapproval” without answering the various allegations in paragraphs. Presumably, Watson will submit a similar document in response to each of the other 21 cases.

    The aim of such an aggressive position could be to motivate plaintiffs to settle down before the discovery process results in the investigation of documents and the questioning of each plaintiff under oath. If the cases are not resolved, that is exactly what will happen. All plaintiffs, as well as Watson, will have aggressive questions and other investigations as both sides attempt to prepare for eventual trial in each of these 22 cases.

    High Chinese language official admits vaccines have low effectiveness | Your Cash

    BEIJING (AP) – China’s top disease control official said in a rare appreciation that current vaccines offer poor protection against the coronavirus and that mixing these vaccines is one of the strategies being considered to increase their effectiveness.

    China has distributed hundreds of millions of doses of domestically manufactured vaccines overseas and relies on them in its own mass vaccination campaign.

    However, the director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention Gao Fu said at a conference on Saturday that their effectiveness rates needed to be improved.

    “We will solve the problem that current vaccines do not have very high protection rates,” Gao said in a presentation on Chinese COVID-19 vaccines and vaccination strategies at a conference in southwestern Chengdu. “We are currently looking into whether we should use different vaccines from different technical fields for the immunization process.”

    He also praised the benefits of mRNA vaccines, the technology behind two of the most widely recognized vaccines, Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna, months after asking if the untested method was safe.

    In a message to The Associated Press late Sunday evening, Gao said he was speaking about efficacy rates for “vaccines in the world, not specifically for China.” He did not answer any further questions about the vaccines he was referring to.

    He referred the AP to an interview with the state-run Global Times, which published several articles that cast doubts about the safety of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine. Gao was quoted by the point of sale on Sunday as saying that he had been misunderstood and was simply talking broadly about improving the vaccine’s effectiveness.

    Beijing previously tried to cast doubt on the effectiveness of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine, which uses the genetic code known as messenger RNA, or mRNA, to boost the immune system.

    Health officials at a press conference on Sunday did not directly respond to questions about Gao’s comment or possible changes to official plans. However, another CDC official said Chinese developers are working on mRNA-based vaccines.

    “The mRNA vaccines developed in our country have also entered the clinical trial phase,” said Wang Huaqing, official. He did not give a schedule for possible use.

    Experts say mixing vaccines or sequential immunization could increase their effectiveness. Researchers in the UK are investigating a possible combination of Pfizer-BioNTech and the AstraZeneca vaccine.

    Gao ended his presentation on Saturday with praise for mRNA vaccines and called for innovation in research.

    “Everyone should consider the benefits mRNA vaccines can bring to humankind,” said Gao. “We have to follow them carefully and not ignore them just because we already have several types of vaccines.”

    Gao previously questioned the safety of mRNA vaccines. He was quoted by the official Xinhua News Agency as saying that he could not rule out negative side effects in December as it was being used for the first time in healthy people and said, “There are safety concerns.”

    Chinese state media and popular health and science blogs also questioned the safety and effectiveness of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine, although large-scale studies and the introduction of the vaccines in the US have proven its safety.

    China currently has five vaccines in use as part of its mass immunization campaign, three inactivated virus vaccines from Sinovac and Sinopharm, one one-shot vaccine from CanSino, and the last one from Gao’s team working with Anhui Zhifei Longcom.

    According to the companies, the effectiveness of the vaccines is between a little more than 50% and 79%.

    The shot by Gao’s team was approved for emergency use a month ago and has not yet publicly disclosed any data on its effectiveness.

    Studies have shown that Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, which are mainly used in developed countries, have about 95% protection against COVID-19.

    As of April 2, around 34 million people in China have received full two doses of Chinese vaccines, and about 65 million have received one, according to Gao.

    Globally, public health experts have said that any vaccine that is 50% effective would be useful, and many governments have been eager to use Chinese vaccines as rich countries around the world have taken pictures of Pfizer and Moderna.

    WHO director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreysus said Friday that while one in four people in rich countries received a vaccine, only one in 500 people in poorer countries received a dose.

    The coronavirus pandemic, first spotted in central China in late 2019, marks the first time the Chinese drug industry has played a role in responding to a global health emergency.

    Vaccines from Sinovac, a privately held company, and Sinopharm, a state-owned company, make up the bulk of China’s vaccines, which are sold in several dozen countries, including Mexico, Turkey, Indonesia, Hungary, Brazil, and Turkey.

    However, the companies have not released publicly peer-reviewed data on end-stage clinical trial research and have been criticized for a lack of transparency.

    For example, Sinovac’s vaccine gave cause for concern when it was found to have different rates of effectiveness ranging from 50% to over 83% in each of the studies conducted in different countries.

    A Sinovac spokesperson, Liu Peicheng, admitted varying levels of effectiveness were noted, but said it could be due to the age of the people in a study, the strain of the virus, and other factors.

    Beijing has not yet approved foreign vaccines for use in mainland China.

    Sinovac spokesman Liu said studies have shown that protection “may be better” if the time between vaccinations is longer than the current 14 days, but gave no indication that this could be made standard practice.


    Wu reported from Taipei.


    This story has been corrected to show that Chinese vaccines have been donated or exported to several dozen countries, not 22, and that Sinovac is a private, not state-owned company.
