Travelers at New York's LaGuardia Airport. AP Photo/John MinchilloOver 1.1 million travelers flew on Sunday, breaking a record for pandemic travel for daily passengers not seen since March. Thanksgiving was largely successful in getting more flyers in the air as over 15 million passengers flew between November 19 and November 29, according to the Transportation Security Administration. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned against Thanksgiving travel but over a third of Americans told Insider that the guidance didn't change their plans. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The Transportation Security Administration is reporting that a record-breaking 1,176,091 passengers traveled by air on Sunday, likely returning home after the Thanksgiving holiday. It's the first time since March 16 that daily traffic numbers have been that high. Thanksgiving encouraged more people to fly following a lackluster summer for airlines, TSA statistics show. The days leading up to the family-oriented holiday that typically draws scores of flyers to the skies similarly saw passenger numbers exceed one million. From November 19 to November 29, nine days saw over 900,000 passengers, four of which saw over one million passengers for a total of 10,381,904 passengers. The same period in 2019 saw

Daily Beast editor-at-large goes on warpath in chilling editorial directed against Trump supporters
Rick Wilson, the Daily Beast's editor-at-large, says he and presumably others "won't forget" and "won't forgive" what Trump supporters did to America. In his rant, Wilson also appeared to compare the United States to a cheap hooker that President Donald Trump used and abused. What are the details? In a Sunday night editorial tagged "overdue penalties," Wilson said that it's simply "not enough to merely enjoy their agony and humiliation" as former Vice President Joe Biden is set to be inaugurated in January 2021. "It's not enough to hope they'll be shamed and correct their behavior," Wilson added in his short — but very pointed — remarks. "The dark is rising for Trump's sycophants, toadies, and enablers," Wilson wrote. "Their tough-guy acts and f***-your-feelings s***-talk have become a furious whine of complaints and recriminations as a toxic slurry of rage and despair has left a stinging bile in the back of their throats that won't go away." "Trump lost," he continued, "and they can't spin their way past it." Pointing to the Trump campaign's election fraud-related lawsuits against various states, Wilson added, "Even as his lawyers are all but chased out of each town where they file their absurd, doomed
LONDON (REUTERS) - People who refuse a vaccine for Covid-19 could find normal life curtailed as restaurants, bars, cinemas and sports venues could block entry to those who don't have proof they are inoculated, Britain's new vaccine minister said on Monday (Nov 30). Several major Covid-19 vaccines have been announced in recent weeks, raising hopes that the world could soon return to some semblance of normality after the coronavirus killed 1.46 million people and wiped out a chunk of the global economy. The British minister responsible for the vaccine rollout, Mr Nadhim Zahawi, said getting vaccinated should be voluntary, but that Google, Facebook and Twitter should do more to fact-check opposing views of vaccines. Asked by the BBC if there would be an immunity passport, Mr Zahawi said a person's Covid-19 vaccine status might be included in a phone app that would inform local doctors of a person's status. "But also I think you'd probably find that restaurants and bars and cinemas and other venues, sports venues, will probably also use that system as they've done with the app," Mr Zahawi told the BBC. "The sort of pressure will come both ways: from service providers
