  • William Shakespeare has gotten a coronavirus vaccine.

  • Sounds like a pretty good place to start a newscast.

  • Welcome to CNN.

  • 10.

  • Odd Coral Jesus.

  • This week, the United Kingdom became the first Western country to make a vaccine available to its citizens.

  • It approved the shot made by American pharmaceutical company Pfizer, though the vaccine still in its trial phase.

  • This is historic because researchers have been working on it for less than a year and experts say no other vaccine has ever been developed in less than four years.

  • The first person to get the shot outside of a clinical trial was a 90 year old Briton named Margaret Keenan.

  • Yesterday she received the first of two doses.

  • An 81 year old named William Shakespeare, who goes by Bill, was the second person to get vaccinated.

  • Britain has ordered enough vaccines for about a third of its 66 million people.

  • Not all of the doses will be available immediately.

  • Manufacturers still have to produce and distribute vaccines to the places that have ordered them, and not everyone who is eligible actually plans to get the vaccine.

  • Polls have indicated that some members of the public have concerns about its safety, and some question its necessity is.

  • More than 99% of people who contract coronavirus are estimated to survive it.

  • Though the disease has been blamed for contributing to more than 1.5 million deaths worldwide, the lockdowns closures and restrictions related to coronavirus have changed life as we know it.

  • One sector that's been hit particularly hard is the restaurant industry.

  • The U.

  • S National Restaurant Association says more than 110,000 establishments, or 17% of restaurants in America, have gone out of business because of forced closures and limits on the number of diners allowed.

  • It expects that 10,000 more restaurants will close in the months ahead to go.

  • Orders have made up for some of the lost revenue, and organizations like Gold Belly can connect mom and pop restaurants to customers across the country.

  • It's not cheap.

  • A meal for four can cost diners anywhere from 80 to $180.

  • But for the customers and the restaurants with the means, it's an appetizing connection.

  • What's so interesting about food is it's emotional and it's personal, so that's why we look for the most unique creative loved foods all across the country that when you get that box shipped to your door, you open it up.

  • You smell those smells, it transports you to a different time and place.

  • So I'm Joe Ariel.

  • I'm the founder and CEO of Gold Belly were an online marketplace platform where you can discover the most legendary and iconic regional foods all around the country and have them shipped to your door wherever you are in the U.

  • S.

  • We believe in the emotional power of food.

  • And when the pandemic hit, I think a lot of the world felt deep connection to restaurants and places that they've loved.

  • And we've built the first platform where a restaurant can access and reach customers that aren't in their local neighborhood.

  • So we've basically seen a huge influx on both sides of our marketplace, on the customer base and for restaurants who now really need to redefine their businesses and to open up a national demographic outside of their two or three mile radius of their neighborhood and local delivery radius.

  • All of a sudden allows a mom and pop restaurant to have Omni Channel e commerce capabilities.

  • Many of our restaurant tours and partners all across the country.

  • When the pandemic hit.

  • Talked about there's no longer butts in the seats, and so hundreds of our partners have actually turned.

  • They're indoor dining rooms that they can't really use into gold belly production, preparation and shipping facilities.

  • And for many of the restaurants they're actually doing Mawr covers now in gold belly orders than they were in customers coming into their shops.

  • Part of our magic value proposition for restaurants is the technology to power not only the front end but the back end dashboards for restaurants to take national shipping orders.

  • And so we're able with high level access with all the shipping carriers, to really be able to have a team that is monitoring every single package to make sure that it doesn't perish.

  • Now we work with more than 600 food makers, restaurants and artisans all across the country, the team has doubled in size since March, more than a million new customers this year.

  • Our mission as a company is to bring people comfort through food, whatever they dream of wherever they are.

  • So I think as people become now mawr accepting off beautiful food experiences in a box shipped across state lines.

  • I do think consumer habits will change and I think as people get more comfortable and we're seeing many more repeat orders, I think the gold belly experience will become much more ah, part of people's lives as we go forward.

  • 12th Trivia.

  • Which of these nations borders both China and India?

  • Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Vietnam or Nepal, situated between India and the Tibet Autonomous Region of China, is the nation of Nepal, and sitting on the border between Nepal and the Tibet Autonomous Region of China is the highest peak on the planet.

  • But exactly how high is Mt.

  • Everest?

  • There's a long running debate about that.

  • Different countries have had different estimates of Everest tight.

  • A Chinese survey done in 2005 estimated Everest altitude at about 29,015 ft.

  • But because Nepal didn't authorize that research, it stuck with the measurement of 29,029 ft than an Indian survey determined in 1955.

  • In more recent years, China and India have re examined Everest measurements.

  • They agreed to cooperate with their findings and after different teams examined leveling instrument gravity meter and GPS information.

  • They just announced the mountains.

  • Official height together.

  • Drum roll, please.

  • Mount Everest stands at about 29 0 32 ft tall and climbing.

  • It is probably effective, if also extremely dangerous and expensive.

  • Exercise climbers typically pay between 30 and $90,000 to risk life and limb on the mountain, and only about 29% of those who try actually make it to the top.

  • But amid all the restrictions imposed this year because of the coronavirus pandemic, a lot of folks can't even climb the rock wall at a gym.

  • Does that matter?

  • Yes, according to CNN 10 contributor Chris James.

  • Hey, Carl, there are three things that will keep many of us glued right here on our couches through the near future winter, the yearly flu season And, of course, the second wave of the Cove in 19 Pandemic I, for one, have been spending more time inside the walls of this apartment than ever before.

  • But with so many of us staring down the next few months indoors, it's important to develop a plan now to remain physically active during the long winter ahead.

  • Here's what you need to know While we're all keenly aware of how important it is to engage in some regular forms of exercise, you might not realize how damaging and ultimately expensive reduced physical activity can be on our bodies.

  • It can lead to poor sleep, increased body fat, reduced muscle mass and even insulin resistance, which is a common warning sign for the development of type two diabetes.

  • Physical in activity can also be a big factor towards developing mental illness.

  • This is also something we need to make sure we talk to our parents and grand parents about because, according to a study from McMaster University, once an older individual loses muscle, it's much harder for them toe.

  • Ever restore it.

  • Even when the studies older research subjects went back to their normal daily routines, they did not regain that lost muscle.

  • But just because we may not want to leave the house right now for a variety of different reasons, does not in any way mean that we can't keep an even build muscle right now.

  • Here it home.

  • It's important to remember to make sure we're eating foods high in protein and engaging in resistence exercise.

  • If you don't have access to a gym.

  • There are loads of videos on YouTube where you can literally follow along.

  • Tow a free guided workout.

  • And don't forget we can always manage to fit body weight exercises in some easily accessible options to help meet the World Health Organization's latest physical activity.

  • Guidelines include push ups, lunges, stair climbing and yes, of course, everyone's favorite squats Back to you, Carl.

  • Upcoming Olympic events, sports climbing, extreme canoe, slalom and break dancing.

  • It will make its debut at the 2024 Summer Games in Paris, France.

  • The International Olympic Committee made the announcement this week.

  • It says it's part of an effort to make the games more youthful and more urban.

  • Some athletes in excluded sports like squash strongly disagree with the decision.

  • But the IOC says the host countries have some influence over what's included, and France apparently proposed break dancing.

  • How will it be judged?

  • I mean, it's not like judges can just freeze and lock into whatever down rock makes the floor rock or try to decipher all the hand spin he'll spend or backspin that makes their heads spin like a windmill.

  • Or maybe it is a long as they have a firm foundation for breaking down all the hype.

  • I'm Carl Azuz for CNN 10.

  • And let's be Frank Frankfurt High School is awesome.

  • Shout out to our viewers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and thank you for subscribing and leaving a comment on our YouTube channel.

  • We'll see you tomorrow.
