Humans are not the only ones adapting to the effects of global climate change.

Animals are also adapting to the environmental changes — as some warm-blooded animals are beginning to "shapeshift" their bodies in response to shifts in climate, according to a recent study in Trends in Ecology & Evolution led by Sara Ryding, a researcher at Deakin University in Australia.

President Biden on Thursday unveiled a series of steps to combat the newly surging pandemic, including the announcement of a forthcoming federal rule that all businesses with 100 or more employees have to ensure that every worker is either vaccinated for COVID-19 or submit to weekly testing for the coronavirus.

Iconic American actress Jamie Lee Curtis has won the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice International Film Festival.

Curtis accepted her award Wednesday just before the premiere of her new movie Halloween Kills, in which she reprises her longtime role as beloved protagonist Laurie Strode. The film, which comes out next month, is the sequel to 2018's Halloween and the 12th movie in the horror franchise.

Former Trump administration officials are pushing back after the Biden administration sought their removal from military academy boards.

In a move to further protect workers and customers from COVID-19, United Airlines has told employees who are seeking religious or medical exemptions to the company's vaccine mandate that even if approved, they will be put on temporary leave starting Oct. 2 while the company works to institute safety measures for unvaccinated employees.

Employees granted religious exemptions will be placed on temporary, unpaid personal leave, and those granted medical exemptions will be placed on temporary medical leave, according to an internal memo.

If you have a baby at home or are expecting one in the next few months, you might be on edge for all sorts of reasons, but particularly because of COVID-19. The delta variant of the coronavirus has turned nearly every community in the country into a bright red hot spot of viral infection. Babies can't get vaccinated against COVID-19 yet — and the youngest age included in current vaccine clinical studies is 6 months old.

Today:  On this special edition of "Regionally Speaking," we have three conversations on the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.  State Rep. Ed Soliday of Valparaiso was an executive with United Airlines when the terrorists commandeered and flew aircraft into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a jetliner that crashed into a field outside Shanksville, PA on 9-11-01.  He recalls the events which followed.  Two of the four hijacked aircraft were United Airlines flights.  Purdue University Northwest associate political science professor Richard Rupp has some observations about the aftermath of the terrorist attacks and how it changed national and world policy.  (pictured: the 9-11 Memorial in New York)  And Indiana Public Broadcasting's Dylan Peers McCoy spoke with a Chesterton high school history teacher about how he  conducted his class on September 11, 2001.
