Brazilian Supreme Court Justice Ricardo Lewandowski has approved an investigation into Health Minister Eduardo Pazuello's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic in the northern city of Manaus, according to a court document released on Monday. Lewandowski granted a petition for the probe by Attorney General Augusto Aras, and gave a period of 60 days for the probe to conclude. Manaus, in the northern state of Amazonas, has been hit hard by a brutal second wave that has pushed the city's emergency services to breaking point.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Cole Beasley was so committed to being part of what became the Buffalo Bills’ deepest post-season run in 27 years, the veteran slot receiver spent the past three weeks playing on a broken leg. The partially broken fibula will eventually heal without needing surgery. The pain of a 38-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC championship game might linger far longer. “I’d expect everybody to take that feeling in the off-season and do what they feel they need to get us to where we want to go,” Beasley said Monday, a day following the loss. “We’ve got to figure out what we’ve got to do to get better, because they ain’t going anywhere, but we aren’t either. We look forward to the challenge and look forward to another chance.” Though listed on Buffalo's injury report as having a knee injury, Beasley revealed he broke his leg in the fourth quarter of a 38-9 win at New England in Week 16. After sitting out the Bills’ finale, he was back on the field making seven catches for 57 yards in a 27-24 wild-card playoff victory over Indianapolis. “There’s no excuses for anything,” said Beasley, who finished the post-season with 14 catches for 145 yards. “It was bad the first game I played, but after that, you take a few meds and suck it up.” The same can be said of the Bills (15-4), whose visions of their first Super Bowl appearance since 1994 unraveled against the defending champions. In rallying from a 9-0 first-quarter deficit, the Chiefs exposed Buffalo's deficiencies on both sides of the ball. The Josh Allen-led offence, which set a single-season team record by scoring 501 points, sputtered in settling for field goals rather than touchdowns before the score got out of reach. The defence was no match against a dynamic Chiefs offence for the second time this season. After allowing a season-high 245 yards rushing in a 26-17 loss to Kansas City in Week 6, Buffalo surrendered 325 yards passing on Sunday, with Tyreek Hill's 172 yards receiving the most allowed by the Bills in the post-season. The outcome served as a reminder of the gap still separating Buffalo and the NFL’s elite. “Plain and simple, to get to where we want to be, that’s going to be the team we’re going to have to beat,” cornerback Tre'Davious White said. “That’s the standard there.” If that’s the case, general manager Brandon Beane has more work on his plate. Last off-season, following a 22-19 overtime loss to Houston in a wild-card playoff, Beane addressed the need for more offence by acquiring receiver Stefon Diggs in a trade with Minnesota. This year, he has holes to fill on a defence which took a major step back in finishing 14th in the NFL in yards allowed after ranking in the top three each of the two previous seasons. As evidenced by both losses to Kansas City, Buffalo experienced difficulties stopping the run and at the same time pressuring quarterbacks without having to blitz. The troubles stem in part from an off-season in which Buffalo lost defensive linemen Jordan Phillips and Shaq Lawson to free agency, and with top run stuffer Star Lotulelei opting out because of COVID-19 concerns. Equally troubling were the inconsistent play of middle linebacker Tremaine Edmunds combined with linebacker Matt Milano missing five games because of injuries. Though Lotulelei is under contract and expected to return, free agent Milano’s status is uncertain. On the bright side, the offence showed substantial growth under Allen, who set numerous single-season passing and scoring records. The third-year player took little satisfaction from a season in which the Bills won their first AFC East title and their first playoff game in 25 years. “Falling a game short of your goals is never fun,” Allen said. CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS Allen revealed his entire family has been stricken with COVID-19, with his father recently returning home after spending time in the hospital. “He’s doing better,” Allen said. “I think all my siblings have had it. Now my parents have had it. Obviously, it’s nothing to joke around with.” Co-ordinatOR QUESTIONS Offensive co-ordinator Brian Daboll is set to return for a fourth season after losing out on head-coaching vacancies with the Jets and the Chargers. The attention now turns to defensive co-ordinator Leslie Frazier, a Houston Texans candidate. “I don’t like the idea at all,” White said of the possibility of Frazier’s departure after four seasons. “I’ll definitely be an endorsee for him to get the job, but hopefully he’ll be back with us next year because he’s definitely a big part of our success.” FREE AGENCY Aside from Milano, Buffalo’s key players eligible to become unrestricted free agents include starting offensive linemen Jon Feliciano and Darryl Williams, gadget receiver Isaiah McKenzie, receiver/returner Andre Roberts, and backup cornerback Josh Norman. BY THE NUMBERS By finishing 28 of 48 for 287 yards against the Chiefs, Allen’s 20 incompletions were the most since going 24 of 46 for 264 yards in the playoff loss to Houston last year. ... The Bills led the NFL by converting 93 of 187 third-down chances during the regular season before converting just 11 of 36 in three playoff games. ... The defence allowed opponents to convert 22 of 44 third-down opportunities in the post-season after giving up a combined 38 of 120 over the final 10 regular-season games. ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL John Wawrow, The Associated Press

CINCINNATI — Ohio Sen. Rob Portman said Monday that he won’t seek reelection to a third term in 2022, expressing dismay with the deep partisanship and dysfunction in American politics. The career establishment Republican with a reputation for bipartisanship cited a political climate that has made it “harder to break through the partisan gridlock and make progress." “Our country is very polarized,” Portman said, adding that former President Donald Trump did not help with the polarization. “It’s shirts and skins right now. We need to tone it down.” The decision is one measure of the difficult politics facing many Republicans in Washington as they cede power in President Joe Biden's administration and watch their party split between hard-right Trump supporters and others eager to turn the page. Portman, a moderate who might see growing influence as Biden looks for allies, did not appear optimistic about the prospect of a new political climate. Portman, 65, is among the longtime Republican lawmakers who often backed Trump, though not vociferously. Once dubbed “The Loyal Soldier” in a front-page profile story in his hometown Cincinnati Enquirer, Portman usually defended Trump or avoided criticism of him with carefully worded statements. After Trump called the presidential election rigged, citing no legitimate evidence, Portman said Trump had a right to a probe of any irregularities. But immediately after the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol by a violent mob of Trump backers, Portman said Trump needed to go on national TV to tell his supporters to refrain from violence. “Both in his words before the attack on the Capitol and in his actions afterward, President Trump bears some responsibility for what happened,” Portman said. His retirement adds another open seat for the GOP to defend in 2022 as it seeks to regain control of a Senate that Democrats hold by virtue of Vice-President Kamala Harris being the tiebreaking vote. Sens. Richard Burr of North Carolina and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, two other more mainstream Republicans in the Senate GOP caucus, have also said they won't seek reelection next year. “There goes the kind of really thoughtful public official who listens, who work both sides, who tries to get things done,” Republican pollster Christine Matthews said. “And right now the kind of candidate that’s going to come out of a Ohio Republican primary is not going to be that kind of candidate. That’s not the kind of energy that’s in the Republican primary electorate right now.” Indiana Sen. Todd Young, former chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, said he wasn't worried about moderates fleeing the party. “(Portman's departure) says nothing about the 2022 landscape," Young said. "It says a lot about Rob Portman that, two years out, he made the announcement so that Republicans have plenty of time to field a very strong candidate and to give that candidate sufficient time to run a strong campaign, which they will.” Eight-term Rep. Jim Jordan, an outspoken Trump supporter from western Ohio, and six-term Rep. Bill Johnson, from heavily pro-Trump southeast Ohio, are viewed as potential candidates for Portman's seat. Likewise, former Rep. Jim Renacci from central Ohio, a Republican who lost a Senate challenge to Democrat Sherrod Brown in 2018, is also considered a possible contender. Portman’s announcement came the same day that the Senate is receiving the House impeachment article against Trump for his role in the Capitol riot. While some Republican senators have criticized going ahead with the trial with Trump out of office, Portman said last week that he would listen to the evidence presented by both sides before deciding how to vote. Republicans have 20 seats up for reelection in 2022, compared to 14 for Democrats. Those GOP seats include presidential battlegrounds Wisconsin, where Trump narrowly lost in November, and Florida, where he won by more than 3 percentage points. Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson has not yet said whether he'll seek a third term. Meanwhile, six-term Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, who would turn 89 two months before the 2022 election, said he would decide this year whether to seek a seventh. Two-term Missouri Republican Roy Blunt has not said whether he'll seek a third. Ohio, a perennial battleground for decades, has become more reliably Republican, carried by Trump by more than 8 percentage points in 2016 and 2020. Portman, like many mainstream GOP lawmakers viewed as insufficiently supportive of Trump, was considered likely to face a primary challenge from the right. “Yeah, sure, some people are mad at him,” said Ohio Republican strategist Ryan Stubenrauch. “But he wouldn't have faced a credible primary challenge. He does his job. He's a really good campaigner and well known across the state.” Portman twice won election to the Senate by wide margins. Before that, he served seven terms in the House and a stint as President George W. Bush's budget director. Still, Portman's departure offers a glimmer of hope for Democrats in the state. Besides Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown, most other statewide officials are Republican. Tim Ryan, a 10-term Democratic representative from blue-collar eastern Ohio who ran unsuccessfully for the 2020 presidential nomination, said Monday that he is weighing a Senate campaign. “I haven’t made a decision yet but I’m looking seriously at it," he wrote on Twitter. Likewise, Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, a rising star who lost a 2018 primary for governor, said she is weighing a Senate bid. “I've gotten a lot of encouragement, especially today, and will make my decision in the coming weeks,” Whaley told The Associated Press. Portman’s first federal government job started in 1989, when he served as an associate legal counsel in the George H.W. Bush White House. Portman considered Bush a mentor, one whose genteel style was far from that of the abrasive Trump and some of his Republican supporters in Washington Portman was elected to Congress from southern Ohio in a 1993 special election and won six more elections before President George W. Bush tapped him to serve as U.S. trade representative in 2005. He travelled the globe, negotiating dozens of trade agreements. Bush then nominated him to be White House budget director in 2006. ___ Beaumont reported from Des Moines, Iowa. ___ Follow Dan Sewell at https://twitter.com/dansewell By Dan Sewell And Thomas Beaumont, The Associated Press

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers said he's not sure what his future holds in Green Bay. That was all it took to raise concerns about the Packers' ability to contend in 2021 and beyond. Green Bay earned the top seed in the NFC behind an All-Pro season from Rodgers, who at age 37 put his team in ideal position to win its first Super Bowl since the 2010 season and the second of his brilliant career. But the Packers' season ended with a dispiriting 31-26 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Sunday's NFC championship game, and it didn't take long for questions about the team's long-term commitment to Rodgers to resurface. After the Packers' fourth NFC title game loss in seven seasons, Rodgers said “a lot of guys’ futures are uncertain, myself included.” Rodgers has three years remaining on the four-year, $118 million extension he signed in August 2018, but the two-time MVP has acknowledged on multiple occasions that his hopes of finishing his career in Green Bay were complicated by the Packers’ decision to select Utah State quarterback Jordan Love in the 2020 draft. “There’s a lot of unknowns going into this off-season now,” Rodgers said. “I’m going to have to take some time away for sure and clear my head and just kind of see what’s going on with everything. But it’s pretty tough right now, especially thinking about the guys who may or may not be here next year. There’s always change. That’s the only constant in this business.” Assuming Rodgers returns, the team around him could look quite different. The Packers’ list of potential free agents includes running backs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams, All-Pro centre Corey Linsley and cornerback Kevin King. Linsley was asked Monday about the progress of contract negotiations. “My agent hasn’t had any talks with the Packers,” Linsley said. “That’s obviously not to say something couldn’t happen, but up to this point it’s kind of been complimentary but nothing of substance.” MISSING BAKHTIARI The Packers boasted one of the league’s top offensive lines this season thanks in part to All-Pro left tackle David Bakhtiari, who suffered a season-ending knee injury on Dec. 31. The Packers initially thrived without Bakhtiari, as they allowed just one sack in a win at Chicago and none in a playoff victory over the Los Angeles Rams. Bakhtiari’s absence was much more noticeable Sunday. The Bucs recorded five sacks, matching their output from their 38-10 regular-season victory over the Packers. Green Bay allowed a total of 16 sacks in its other 16 games. TOUGH FINISH FOR KING, JONES If this was the last game in Packers uniforms for King and Jones, it will be a tough way for them to go out. King played through a back injury that had prevented him from practicing Friday. He was beaten on two touchdown passes — including a 39-yarder to Scotty Miller with 1 second left until halftime — and committed a pass-interference penalty that helped the Bucs run out the clock. Jones, who gained more than 3,000 yards from scrimmage and scored 30 touchdowns over the past two seasons, fumbled early in the second half to set up a Bucs touchdown. He suffered a chest injury on the play that knocked him out for the rest of the game. NO GOLD RUSH THIS TIME Green Bay had the NFL’s best red-zone offence this season, though the Packers referred to it as the “gold zone” due to offensive co-ordinator Nathanial Hackett’s love of the movie “Austin Powers in Goldmember.” That magic was missing Sunday as the Packers twice settled for field goals after having first-and-goal. Rodgers was 2 of 9 with two touchdown passes in goal-to-go plays Sunday. Through the first 17 games of the season, he had been 41 of 59 with 31 touchdowns and no interceptions in those situations. “Everyone’s obviously just very disappointed, very hurt,” wide receiver Allen Lazard said Monday. “Everyone thinks that they probably could’ve done something better at some point in the game that would’ve had a better result, but the truth is we’re sitting here today. So we’ve got to be able to bottle that up and keep moving forward.” STAFF DECISIONS Packers coach Matt LaFleur is 26-6 in his two seasons, and despite questions about his late-game decisions against Tampa Bay, he remains one of the bright young minds in the NFL and isn't going anywhere. LaFleur has had the same co-ordinators — Hackett, Mike Pettine (defence) and Shawn Mennenga (special teams) for his first two seasons. Now he must decide whether to bring them back. The NFC championship game reflected the occasional inconsistency of Green Bay’s defence under Pettine. The Packers intercepted three of Tom Brady's passes and allowed only three points in the last 28 1/2 minutes of the game, but they also gave up that long touchdown pass just before halftime. Green Bay’s most notable flaw during its seven-game streak was its occasional tendency to have a breakdown on special teams. ___ Follow Steve Megargee at https://twitter.com/stevemegargee ___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Steve Megargee, The Associated Press
The CFL team with no name now doesn't have a coach. Scott Milanovich resigned Monday as the head coach of the Edmonton Football Team to explore NFL opportunities. The move came just over a year after Milanovich stepped down as the quarterback coach with the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars after three seasons to return to the CFL, where he got his first opportunity to become a pro head coach. Milanovich, who turned 48 on Monday, is expected to become the quarterback coach with the Indianapolis Colts. That position became vacant after Marcus Brady — who served as the Montreal Alouettes' receivers coach from 2009-11 when Milanovich was the offensive co-ordinator and assistant head coach on Marc Trestman's staff — was promoted to offensive co-ordinator on Monday. Edmonton GM Brock Sunderland said while the timing of Milanovich's resignation wasn't ideal, it didn't come as a huge surprise. "Scott was transparent throughout the process," Sunderland said in a telephone interview. "When Marcus Brady was in the mix for a promotion starting last Thursday and Friday, Scott called me and we had some candid discussions about what the potential may be. "We talked a couple of times over the weekend and (Monday) morning he called and was officially offered the job and he let me know. It wasn't a completely out-of-the-blue call where I was shocked. It's not April or May so it certainly could be worse." And Sunderland said part of a GM's job is planning for every contingency,. "If you're a GM you should always have a list of candidates because you just never know whatever circumstance may pop up and I always have a list ready," he said. "You always hope you don't have to go to it but that's why you prepare and do your due diligence and have those names ready to go." Milanovich's departure creates two problems for Edmonton as he also was the club's offensive co-ordinator. So Milanovich's successor would have to be someone with an offensive background if they were to handle both jobs because the offensive assistants currently on staff likely don't have enough experience to assume responsibility for the unit. Two potential candidates could be Jaime Elizondo and Jim Barker, both offensive-minded coaches with extensive CFL backgrounds. Elizondo has served as an offensive assistant or offensive co-ordinator with Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. Barker has been a CFL head coach with Calgary and Toronto (twice) and won four Grey Cups. And it would seem former CFL head coach Chris Jones has thrown his hat into the ring after a tweet Monday. Jones, an assistant coach with the NFL's Cleveland Browns, was Edmonton's head coach in 2015 when it won the Grey Cup. ""@EdmFootballTeam would love the opportunity win another one! #GreyCup2021," Jones tweeted above a picture of himself with the Grey Cup. Edmonton defensive co-ordinator Noel Thorpe is another veteran CFL coach, having also served with Montreal (defensive co-ordinator/assistant head coach from 2013-17) and Ottawa (defensive co-ordinator 2018-19). But like Jones, Thorpe doesn't have an offensive background. "It's going to be the best candidate overall," Sunderland said. "There's no exact timeframe, we're going to make sure we do our due diligence and get the right person and we're not going to rush it. "The only prerequisite I have is I want someone who's familiar with the CFL. It doesn't mean they've had to be a co-ordinator but they've had to have coached in this league. I think it's a big jump to go from four-down football with zero CFL experience, especially in a timeframe we're under." Milanovich guided the Toronto Argonauts to the 2012 Grey Cup title in his first year as a head coach. But he never got the chance to coach Edmonton as the CFL didn't play in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Milanovich is also good friends with Colts head coach Frank Reich. Both were quarterbacks collegiately at Maryland and served as backups in the NFL before getting involved in coaching. Milanovich actively courted Reich to join his Toronto staff in 2012 before the latter accepted a job as receivers coach that year with the Arizona Cardinals. Brady, who replaced Milanovich as Montreal's offensive co-ordinator, reunited with Milanovich as Argos offensive co-ordinator (2013-17) before being hired as the Colts assistant quarterback coach in 2018. Milanovich and Brady won two Grey Cups together as coaches (2009-10 with Montreal) while Brady added another CFL title in 2017 as Toronto's offensive co-ordinator. Before entering the coaching ranks, Brady was a CFL quarterback with the Argos (2002-03), Hamilton Tiger-Cats (2004-05) and Alouettes (2006-08) and met Reich in large part because of the Colts coach's relationship with Milanovich, the '12 CFL coach of the year. Brady replaces Nick Sirianni, who left Indianapolis to become the Philadelphia Eagles' head coach. Brady becomes just the third Black offensive co-ordinator in the NFL after Kansas City's Eric Bieniemy and Tampa Bay's Byron Leftwich. Kansas City and Tampa Bay square off in the Super Bowl on Feb. 7 at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium. Milanovich was a former NFL quarterback with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1996-99). He also suited up with NFL Europe’s Berlin Thunder (2000), the XFL’s Los Angeles Xtreme (2001), Arena Football League’s Tampa Bay Storm (2002), and Calgary Stampeders (2003). "Scott and I were friends when he was hired and that remains intact," Sunderland said. "He's doing what he feels is best for him and his family and I respect and understand that."

(Bloomberg) -- Apple Inc. said top hardware executive Dan Riccio is stepping down from his role to lead a new project at the company and John Ternus, one of his top lieutenants, will replace him.Riccio has been senior vice president of hardware engineering since 2012, overseeing development of the hardware in the iPhone, iPad, Mac and audio products like the AirPods and HomePod. Ternus, who Bloomberg reported last year was poised to replace Riccio, has been vice president of hardware engineering since 2013, and was most recently leading the iPhone, Mac and iPad engineering groups.Riccio will remain at the company as a vice president of engineering and focus on a new project reporting to Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook, the Cupertino, California-based tech giant said Monday in a statement. “I’m looking forward to doing what I love most — focusing all my time and energy at Apple on creating something new and wonderful that I couldn’t be more excited about,” Riccio said in the statement.Apple didn’t specify Riccio’s new assignment, but the company has at least two major hardware initiatives in the works: a self-driving car and headsets for augmented reality and virtual reality. In his previous role, Apple’s head of AR and VR hardware reported to Riccio, while the car project was moved under the leadership of John Giannandrea, the company’s machine learning chief, last year.Apple is working on a consumer-oriented self-driving car, but it won’t launch for at least five to seven years, Bloomberg News reported earlier this month. Apple is however inching closer to announcing its first VR-focused headset as early as next year, whereas lightweight AR glasses won’t launch until several years later.Read more: Apple Plans High-End VR-Focused Headset as Prelude to AR GlassesRiccio joined Apple in 1998 and succeeded Bob Mansfield as hardware engineering chief nine years ago. When Mansfield left that job, he also remained at Apple and in 2016 became the head of the car project before retiring last year. Riccio briefly oversaw the car project in its early stages.Apple in recent years has pushed Ternus into the public eye. When the company was criticized several years ago because its Mac computers had been updated infrequently and lacked features demanded by professional users such as photo and video editors and app developers, Ternus was the prime executive responding to the complaints and pledging to improve the machines. In November, Ternus announced new Mac laptops that were the first to use company-designed chips.Read more: Apple Launches Three New Macs to Kick Off Switch From IntelA person who knows Ternus told Bloomberg in September that he is a well-respected manager who understands the technology, and despite his rising profile, has remained unassuming — all characteristics of a potential future company division head or even CEO.Around the beginning of 2020, Ternus’s responsibilities expanded to include the iPhone. Prior to that change, Riccio spent the bulk of his time on the handset, the product that generates the bulk of Apple’s sales. He also worked closely with Jony Ive, Apple’s former design chief who departed in 2019.Riccio is the second top executive to leave Apple’s leadership team in the past year while remaining at the company in another role. Phil Schiller, Apple’s former senior vice president, was named an Apple Fellow last year leading the App Store, public relations and the creation of Apple product announcements.Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams remains the only holdover from the executive team that served under former CEO and co-founder the late Steve Jobs. Every member under Cook has been either promoted to or hired for the executive team since Cook was named CEO in 2011.(Updates with more context on Ternus transition in ninth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.
Asian stocks came under pressure on Tuesday as worries about U.S. stimulus and surging coronavirus infections led to a mixed Wall Street session, while the dollar consolidated overnight gains. The choppy trade reflected concerns about new strains of the deadly virus, along with uncertainty about the $1.9 trillion U.S. fiscal stimulus plan that has hit opposition from Republicans in Congress. Those factors tempered earlier optimism stoked by the roll-out of vaccines and anticipation that new U.S. stimulus would give the world economy a much-needed fiscal shot in the arm.
