There was a time, not too long ago, when many people could only name one, maybe two, poets -- often a long-dead White man named William Shakespeare, Robert Frost or Walt Whitman.โ  โ  But now, a shift has occurred. Amanda Gorman -- after reading her striking poem at President Biden's inauguration in January -- inked a modeling contract and was invited to the Met Gala. Rupi Kaur, whose poetry first became prominent on social media, has appeared on celebrity-dominated "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" and has a special on Amazon Prime.โ  โ  Tap the link in our bio to find out how young poets of color are leading the charge.โ  โ  (๐Ÿ“ธ : Rob Carr/Getty Images)

The owner of a bakery in northern England has been told by authorities to stop using banned sprinkles sourced from the US. West Yorkshire Trading Standards said the sprinkles contained an artificial coloring which isn't approved for use in sprinkles in the UK. โ  โ  "I thought it was a joke at first, I thought it was someone pulling a prank," Rich Myers, the owner of the bakery, said. "It's quite an intimidating process really, being interviewed by Trading Standards. It's not something you expect to happen when you run a little bakery." โ  โ  The situation has led to jokes and puns in the UK, with the saga spawning social media posts about #sprinklegate.

Throughout August, the risk of dying from Covi19 was 11 times higher for unvaccinated adults than for fully vaccinated adults in the United States, according to new data published by the CDC.โ  โ  Unvaccinated adults faced a six times higher risk of testing positive for Covid-19 throughout the month, and in the last week of August, the risk of being hospitalized was nearly 19 times higher for unvaccinated adults than fully vaccinated adults.โ  โ  Some states and local jurisdictions have recently started publishing Covid-19 case, death and hospitalization rates by vaccination status on their own dashboards, and the CDC has been working with health departments to link case surveillance data with immunization information systems for their own analysis.

Bitcoin prices continued their October surge on Friday, topping $60,000 on hopes that the Securities and Exchange Commission will soon approve a bitcoin futures exchange-traded fund.โ  โ  Cryptocurrency investors were excited by a tweet from the verified account of the SEC's Office of Investor Education and Advocacy late Thursday that said, "before investing in a fund that holds Bitcoin futures contracts, make sure you carefully weigh the potential risks and benefits."โ  โ  Bitcoinโ€™s price is now only about 5% below the all-time high of just under $65,000 that it hit earlier this year.โ  โ  ๐Ÿ“ธ: Ozan Kose/AFP/Getty Images

Vaccine advisers to the US Food and Drug Administration voted unanimously Friday to recommend a booster dose of Johnson & Johnson's vaccine at least two months after people get the first dose. The FDA's Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee voted 19-0 to recommend the extra dose for all recipients of the J&J Janssen vaccine, 18 and older. The FDA will now consider the committee's advice. Then the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's vaccine advisers will be asked to consider it.โ  โ  Johnson & Johnson says studies have shown boosting at two or six months can bring that effectiveness up to 94% and it says its effectiveness does not wane over time in the same way that effectiveness from Pfizer's vaccine does.โ  โ  ๐Ÿ“ธ: Patrick T.

The discovery of a distant Jupiter-like planet orbiting a dead star reveals what may happen in our solar system when the sun dies in about 5 billion years, according to new research. This unusual duo was discovered 6,500 light-years away, near the center of our Milky Way galaxy. โ  โ  A white dwarf is what remains after a sun-like star swells up to a red giant during the star's evolution. Red giants burn through their hydrogen fuel and expand, consuming any planets near their path. The findings of the study show that planets can survive this incredibly violent phase of stellar evolution. Tap the link in our bio for more on this story. (๐Ÿ“ธ :Adam Makarenko/W.M.
