    President Joe Biden powerfully condemned white supremacy and the so-called Great Replacement theory pushed on the far-right in American politics, which was cited in a racist screed by the alleged shooter that killed 10 people in Buffalo over the weekend. Biden began his speech with an emotional tribute to the victims of the shooting, which is being investigated by authorities as a hate crime. The president then turned his focus, in remarks made in Buffalo on Tuesday, to the ideology that fueled the horrific shooting. “Jill and I bring you this message from deep in our nation’s soul. In America, evil will not win,” Biden said. “I promise you. Hate will not prevail. White supremacy will not have the last word. Evil did come to Buffalo. It has come to too many places. Manifest in gunmen who massacre innocent people in the name of hateful perverse ideology,” he continued. “It has taken so much. Ten lives cut short in a grocery store. Three other wounded by a hate-filled individual who had driven 200 miles from Binghamton, in that range, to...
    Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer wrote to Rupert Murdoch and other Fox News executives on Tuesday, demanding they denounce conspiracy theories like the 'Great Replacement Theory' and end any spread of white supremacist ideology on their network. 'I urge you to take into consideration the very real impacts of the dangerous rhetoric being broadcast on your network on a nightly basis,' Schumer wrote in the letter, where he called out Fox News' Tucker Carlson by name. 'For years, these types of beliefs have existed at the fringes of American life,' Schumer noted. 'However, this pernicious theory, which has no basis in fact, has been injected into the mainstream thanks in large part to a dangerous level of amplification by your network and its anchors.'  'I implore you to immediately cease all dissemination of false white nationalist, far-right conspiracy theories on your network,' he wrote.  Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer demanded Rupert Murdoch and other Fox News executives denounce conspiracy theories like the 'Great Replacement Theory' Schumer sent his letter to Rupert Murdoch and other Fox News executives Payton Gendron,...
    EXPERTS fear monkeypox could be passed on during sex, after the UK has seen seven new cases in a matter of weeks. Infections have risen rapidly, after the first patient travelled with the virus back into Britain from Nigeria. 3Case of monkeypox have risen in the last fortnight - with health chiefs probing linksCredit: Alamy Yesterday health chiefs warned gay and bisexual men to be on the lookout for new unexplained rashes. This came after four of the new cases identified as gay or bisexual, having all picked up the bug in London. It led to new theories emerging surrounding the spread of the virus, which could have been due to intimate contact, such as during sex. While it might not mean it is a sexually transmitted disease in the exact sense that HIV is, but in that very close contact means it is passed on more easily.

    In 2020, residents of long-term care (LTC) facilities accounted for 23% of Minnesota’s total COVID-19 cases and experienced 81% of total COVID-19-related deaths. More than $150 million has been spent in emergency health response at LTC facilities in Minnesota. It’s been just over two years since the pandemic. The omicron variant is still hitting long-term care facilities, with many reported cases in these facilities. Some of the main issues associated with this problem include the lack of total workforce vaccination, poor-quality control and regulation and the vulnerability of LTC facilities residents. However, there is an urgent need to address the low staff COVID-19 vaccination rates as data suggests a strong correlation between COVID-19 incidence among LTC facilities staff and residents. But how can Minnesota reduce the incidence and death rates of COVID-19 cases in LTC facilities in Minnesota as COVID-19 continues to linger in our communities? To connect the dots looking forward, we must look backward. Some of the problems that plague LTC facilities can tie back to their history in the United States. These include the historical social acceptance...
    SUPERMARKETS and eateries across the country have been forced to pull chicken products from their shelves due to salmonella fears. Salmonella is a nasty stomach bug that causes vomiting and diarrhoea.  1Certain products have been removed in supermarkets across the UK due to salmonella fearsCredit: Getty Once it enters the body, it will start causing symptoms in as little as eight hours - but not everyone gets sick. Brits have been warned to be on the lookout for signs and symptoms as Aldi, Sainsbury's, Pret and M&S have all removed chicken sandwiches and other poultry products. The chains have scrapped a range of ready-to-eat foods including sandwiches, wraps and salads over food poisoning risks.

    Startling footage has emerged of Broadway star Patti LuPone laying into an audience member for not wearing a mask properly after a performance of 'Company' in New York City. The two-time Tony award winner berated the individual in the audience who supposedly did not have her mask pulled all the way over her nose during an after show talkback. 'Put your mask over your nose, that's why you're in the theater,' the 73-year-old was heard barking from the stage. 'That's the rule, if you don't want to follow the rule, get the f**k out!' LuPone screamed crazily. Mask mandates have largely been dropped across the country, but NYC residents over the age of two 'who can medically tolerate a face covering' are still obliged to wear a face covering in a range of public settings. LuPone further berated the audience member: 'Who do you think you are if you do not respect the people that are sitting around you?', to which the audience member responded: 'We pay your salary!' 'Bull****, Chris Harper (the play's producer) pays my salary!' Lupone barked...

    Monday’s White House press briefing got a bit testy after Press Secretary Jen Psaki took several questions from CNN’s M.J. Lee. Over the span of nearly five minutes, Lee asked Psaki questions about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s speech about Ukraine, First Lady Jill Biden’s visit to Kyiv, and a question about Covid-19 infections. After Psaki answered the last query, Lee asked a follow-up. One unidentified reporter apparently did not appreciate the number of questions Psaki was taking from Lee. As she attempted to ask a fourth question, he interrupted her. Lee began, “Would the White House be able to–” “Jen, can we spread out the questions a little bit?” he said, before apparently speaking to Lee. “Can you yield to your colleagues please?” Psaki replied, “I would be happy to, but I think it would be polite if you let M.J. finish her question.” “Several,” he shot back, before seemingly addressing Lee again. “Can you yield to your colleagues, please?” While reporters are generally mindful of their press corps colleagues, some one-on-one exchanges with the press secretary can run for...
    (CNN)An extremely critical, highest-level fire risk has been issued Monday near the Calf Canyon/Hermits Peak Fire, as powerful winds, combined with exceptional drought conditions, threaten to fuel the largest wildfire now burning in the United States.Places facing a Level 3 of 3 fire risk include northeast New Mexico, southeast Colorado and western portions of the Oklahoma and Texas panhandles.

    The number of biased crimes against the Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) community continues to increase nationwide. Several data reports have indicated an alarming surge across the country, with some major cities seeing over a 100% increase in AAPI targeted hate crimes. While crimes against the AAPI community are not a new phenomenon, a surge in targeted attacks has been connected to the spread of COVID-19 misinformation. A new report released Wednesday indicates that Americans continue to wrongfully accuse Asian Americans of the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. As a result, distrust of the AAPI community has increased. According to the report released by nonprofits Leading Asian Americans to Unite for Change (LAAUNCH) and The Asian American Foundation (TAAF), 21% of U.S. adults now say Asian Americans are at least partly responsible for COVID-19. xPerceptions of Asian Americans are worsening in the U.S.Here are some of our key findings from the second annual STAATUS Index, short for Social Tracking of Asian Americans in the U.S. ????Read the full report:https://t.co/BnJfrv3elV— go_LAAUNCH (@go_laaunch) May 4, 2022 Despite the increasing awareness around using...
    A MONKEYPOX case has been confirmed in the UK sparking an urgent warning from officials. The killer disease is spread by wild animals in parts of west or central Africa. 1Monkeypox has been confirmed in the UK Public Health England confirmed a case has been confirmed in Britain in a statement today. The patient travelled from Nigeria and is now being treated in a London hospital. It is the sixth-ever case of the rare disease in the UK after two patients were identified in North Wales in 2021. In 2018, more than 50 people were warned they may have been exposed to the disease. An NHS nurse caught the virus while changing the bedsheets of a patient in hospital, blaming "pathetically small" protective gloves. The disease is extremely rare and is not easily spread between people. However, it can be transmitted through contact with clothing or linens - including bedding - used by an infected patient. Direct contact with with monkeypox scabs or a person with a rash coughing or sneezing can spread the virus. Symptoms include fever, a headache, chills, exhaustion, aches and swollen lymph...
    A SECOND child's death has been linked to the mysterious hepatitis outbreak. Parents have been urged to watch out for signs of the serious illness, as cases rise all over the world. 1Children all over the world have been struck down by the mystery bugCredit: Getty - Contributor One tragic death had already been confirmed by the World Health Organisation, although it's not known which country the child was from. And now another death has been linked to the outbreak in the US. It has not been confirmed to be definitely due to unexplained liver damage, but it is part of a probe into a number of similar cases in Wisconsin.

    CANCER is still one of the biggest killers for people all over there world, with hundreds of different types. Skin cancer can be treated, especially if spotted early, but sadly thousands still die every year in the UK. 2Credit: Alamy There are various forms of skin cancer that generally fall under non-melanoma and melanoma. Non-melanoma skin cancers, diagnosed a combined 147,000 times a year in the UK, include basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, and they grow in the upper layers of the skin. It kills around 720 people a year in the UK. Melanoma, meanwhile, is diagnosed 16,000 times a year, but is the most serious type that has a tendency to spread around the body - around 2,333 people die of the disease in the UK every year. It is regarded as the "fifth most common cancer in the UK". Non-melanoma skin cancer stats are excluded because of known under-reporting, Cancer Research UK says. Skin cancer has become more common in the UK, thought to be because Brits have been going abroad on holiday more in recent...
    A 20-year-old Army Motor Transport Operator in training was killed in a car wreck at the Yakima Training Center in Washington state Monday.  Private First Class Joseph A. Marquez, a native of Dover, Delaware, died during a training exercise, according to a 7th Infantry Division press release.

    VIRUSES are always circulating and can cause nasty symptoms. Dozens of kids have been struck down with hepatitis all over the world, and experts think it could be down to a strain of adenorvirus. 1Adenoviruses can cause cold-like symptoms in people, but one strain has been linked to hepatitisCredit: Getty There are around 50 mutations of the bug but experts at the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) say it could be the 41F strain. Hepatitis is an extremely rare side effect of the virus, with 114 kids in the UK having tested for the illness. Most children who have been catching 41F have been having symptoms such as sickness and diarrhoea, following by yellowing of the skin (jaundice).

    (CNN)Americans are abandoning their masks. They're done with physical distancing. And, let's face it, some people are just never going to get vaccinated.Yet a lot can still be done to prevent covid infections and curb the pandemic.A growing coalition of epidemiologists and aerosol scientists say that improved ventilation could be a powerful tool against the coronavirus — if businesses are willing to invest the money."The science is airtight," said Joseph Allen, director of the Healthy Buildings program at Harvard University's T.H. Chan School of Public Health. "The evidence is overwhelming."Although scientists have known for years that good ventilation can reduce the spread of respiratory diseases such as influenza and measles, the notion of improved ventilation as a front-line weapon in stemming the spread of covid-19 received little attention until March. That's when the White House launched a voluntary initiative encouraging schools and work sites to assess and improve their ventilation.Read MoreThe federal American Rescue Plan Act provides $122 billion for ventilation inspections and upgrades in schools, as well as $350 billion to state and local governments for a range of...
    A recent attack on U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene serves to expose what appears to be a new religious battlefield: your airline flight. Rep. Omar focused on a viral video that shows evangelical Christians singing worship music. According to TMZ, the video “shows a packed flight with a good handful of passengers singing what appear to be Christian songs to the rest of the cabin … jamming out on a guitar and walking up and down the aisle in high spirits.” Some of the passengers, however, are clearly uncomfortable and displeased. Rep. Omar posted the video and said, “I think my family and I should have a prayer session next time I am on a plane. How do you think it will end?” Greene’s ugly response implied that all Muslims – or at least Omar’s family – are terrorists: “Would that be kind of like when ‘some people did something?'” Over on Twitter, a very popular freelance reporter who goes by the handle Fifty Shades of Whey posted the video, which has already received tens of...

    (CNN)A recent outbreak of Covid-19 cases among officials in Washington, with dozens testing positive after attending the Gridiron Club Dinner, has put the concept of Covid-19 superspreading back in the spotlight.Covid-19 superspreading, which involves the virus spreading at a single event on a larger scale than what is typically expected, is still possible and poses a risk. But in this stage of the pandemic, a large event may not necessarily be an invitation to widespread, unchecked illness -- if people use tools now available to limit risk, according to public health experts.Now, there are more tools to curb the spread of Covid-19: authorized vaccinations that limit illnesses and infections, robust supplies of at-home tests that can indicate whether someone needs to isolate, face masks to wear in high-risk situations and therapeutics that can reduce severe disease. "We used to be concerned because these superspreading events would put a lot of people in the hospital and as a consequence, some in intensive care units, and even some people dying. This is less likely to happen now," said Dr. William Schaffner, a...
    Members of a 'Boogaloo' militia protest group gathered on the steps of the Michigan Capitol in August 2020 to protest Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's COVID-19 restrictions. A jury’s refusal late last week to convict four Michigan militiamen for plotting to kidnap and assassinate Gov. Gretchen Whitmer—with two men acquitted outright, while the jury was hung on the other two—may have come and gone from the national media radar already. But it’s a decision that will have long-term ramifications for public safety and national security, particularly law enforcement’s ability to effectively deter and prevent domestic terrorism. The verdict was disturbing in no small part because nearly the entirety of the evidence in the case was presented by prosecutors. The defense rested after only a relative handful of witnesses, arguing throughout that the whole affair was a case of entrapment—and it was disturbing and damning, showing a group of men who not only freely indulged in violent fantasies but set about making them realities. But the outcome did not happen in a vacuum. It was only the latest in a string of similar verdicts...
