    Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN)Two long lines -- one of men, another of women -- wind around a World Food Programme (WFP) aid distribution site in the Afghan capital, Kabul, in the heat of the mid-morning sun.Many of the people waiting for support in Khwaja Rawash, a middle-class neighborhood near the Kabul International Airport airport, are Afghanistan's new poor. They used to have decent jobs; now they lean on international aid to survive. The 3,800 Afghanis (just over $40) they receive from the WFP will help them make it through the month.It's calmer than it was on the first day of handouts this month in this district, Khalid Ahmadzai, a WFP coordinating partner at the site, tells CNN. Back then, on May 11, people clambered over the walls to get in. The WFP says it helped 3,000 households in that district on the first day, with each household having an average of seven people in it.Last Sunday, around 700 people waited patiently for up to two hours before their IDs were checked and the money was handed over.Men line up at the...

    The chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee is lying again about his 'Rescue America' plan. Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL), chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, continues to lie about his "Rescue America" plan. On Wednesday, he falsely alleged that President Joe Biden was "confused" after he accurately described the GOP proposal to raise taxes on more than 100 million Americans. In an appearance on Fox News' "Fox & Friends," Scott was asked about the unpopular tax hike provisions in his controversial plan for what Republicans would do if they regained a congressional majority in the November midterm elections. Host Brian Kilmeade noted that Biden had attacked Scott's plan  — which would require the majority of Americans to pay more in federal income taxes — on Tuesday and instead pushed to raise taxes only on corporations and those earning over $400,000. "Your plan, the 11-point plan — which [Minority Leader] Mitch McConnell didn't sign on to — you put out, says, 'All Americans should pay, have some skin in the game, even if it's a small amount because 50%...
    NairobiA former moderator working for Facebook owner Meta Platforms Inc (FB.O) on Tuesday filed a lawsuit alleging that poor working conditions for contracted content moderators violate the Kenyan constitution.The petition, also filed against Meta's local outsourcing company Sama, alleges that workers moderating Facebook posts in Kenya have been subjected to unreasonable working conditions including irregular pay, inadequate mental health support, union-busting, and violations of their privacy and dignity.The lawsuit, filed by one person on behalf of a group, seeks financial compensation, an order that outsourced moderators have the same health care and pay scale as Meta employees, that unionization rights be protected, and an independent human rights audit of the office.A Meta spokesperson told Reuters: "We take our responsibility to the people who review content for Meta seriously and require our partners to provide industry-leading pay, benefits and support. We also encourage content reviewers to raise issues when they become aware of them and regularly conduct independent audits to ensure our partners are meeting the high standards we expect." Meta agrees to pay $90 million to settle lawsuit over Facebook...
    She was able to stop wars, befriend presidents, build a global empire of orphanages and have sick prisoners released from prison. Yet Mother Teresa also covered up for the worst excesses of the Catholic church and seemed more attracted to poverty and pain than actually helping people escape it.  That's the claim in a compelling new three-part Sky documentary series Mother Teresa: For The Love Of God, which talks to some of her closest friends and bitterest critics and serves as a thorough reappraisal of one of the most famous women of the last century.  Born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in Skopje, now North Macedonia, in 1910, Mother Teresa's father died when she was eight, plunging the family into poverty. She took solace in the church and, aged 12, decided to become a nun.  At 18 she went to Dublin to join the Catholic Sisters of Loreto order, and a year later she moved to Calcutta, now Kolkata, to become a teacher. Witnessing the misery and death caused by the Bengal famine of 1943 – when scores of dead bodies were...
    The D.C. area got low marks for air quality, according to a report from the American Lung Association. This year’s “State of the Air” report, found that although there were some improvements from previous years, the area’s ozone pollution gets an F — ranking 30th-most polluted in the country — and drops from a B to a C in particle pollution since last year — becoming the 63rd-worst in the U.S. for daily particle pollution measure. The area was ranked 75th most polluted for year-round particle pollution—much better than its ranking of 39th last year. The worst ozone level in the region was reported in Harford County, Maryland. D.C. was worst in the region for the daily measure of fine particles, but still gets a passing C grade. “Where we need the most improvement is certainly, with respect to ground level ozone smog, there are about half a dozen different counties in the region that get F grades,” Kevin Stewart, director emeritus of Environmental Health with the American Lung Association, said.

    WESTMORELAND COUNTY (KDKA) — The collapse of the Fern Hollow Bridge in Pittsburgh has brought understandable concern about the state of infrastructure in the region. Surrounding areas have many of the same issues, including Westmoreland County. First built in the first decade of the last century, the bridge on State Route 2025 in Mount Pleasant Township is a small bridge, but a big deal for people living near it.

The cement and steel structure has seen better days. While a bit rough looking on top, once you get under the bridge you really get to see the problems up close. For instance, this bridge has large pieces of rust and steel you can actually pull off the structure. You can also stick your fingers through the beams that are holding the bridge up. There are a lot just like this in Westmoreland...
    The Omicron wave swept through Los Angeles over the last two months with unprecedented speed, but ultimately traced a grim path that is becoming increasingly familiar two years into the pandemic. Cases first exploded in affluent communities, where air travel likely introduced the latest coronavirus variant, which got a head start in places like South Africa, London and New York. At first, it appeared the variant might be a “great unifier,” spreading equally throughout the county, but then it took a hard turn toward lower-income communities of color that had already suffered the most throughout the pandemic. By January’s end, officials with the L.A. County Department of Public Health said South and South Central Los Angeles, East L.A. and parts of the San Fernando Valley once again had the highest coronavirus case rates in the county. The shifts “likely reflect the fact that we’re now seeing increased transmission among those whose jobs are putting them in close contact with others and who often live in crowded housing,” L.A. County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said. The findings...
    REDWOOD CITY (KPIX 5) — For nearly five decades, he’s been fighting poverty and planting seeds so others can expand the work. Each week, a truck unloads 5,000 pounds of food weekly from the South San Francisco produce terminal. The fresh produce, from apples to tomatoes, is not ideal for stores to sell, but still good to eat.

    Working from home under current government guidelines means it's easier than ever to do work out of hours over this festive period.  But a new report warns of the costly physical and mental effects of letting work creep into your schedule over the Christmas holiday. Researchers at the University of South Australia surveyed 2,200 academics and professional staff this year across 40 Australian universities.  They found that checking your work emails over Christmas could lead to burnout, mental distress and poor physical health – and can even affect family relationships.   Will you check your emails over Christmas?

    BORING, Ore. —  For 24 years, Jaime Villegas left his mobile home in the Central Valley every summer to follow a path paved by generations of California farmworkers. He would get into a car packed with duffel bags of clothes and coolers with food and embark on a 14-hour journey through acres of agriculture fields, past giant sequoias and unmarked dirt roads to their final destination: Oregon’s blueberry harvest in a town called Boring. He was a boy when he first started doing this trip with his parents, and in later years he went with his wife, Enedina Ventura, and their children. But the ritual was almost always the same. Friends would run into each other on the way up north. The fathers drove the cars; mothers helped in the fields while children attended school until they were old enough to help with la cosecha. “It felt nice,” Villegas, 38, said on a recent October evening. “The good thing is family supports you.” But that ritual has been upended. Fewer and fewer Californians are now showing up for the blueberry...
    Stress can seriously affect your wallet. Photo: . The high levels of stress that we handle in today’s societies, and that have exploded with the Covid-19 pandemic, affect our mental and physical health, our energy … and also our personal finances. The pandemic has not only brought frustration, uncertainty and suffering, but also salary cuts, layoffs, loss of loved ones, neighbors, acquaintances, and for a good part of the population combining work with home, children’s school or simply the confinement has skyrocketed their stress levels. Here are some of the ways stress can directly affect your wallet, according to GoBankingsRates. Thus, knowing it, it is easier to prevent it from happening to us: Spending money to ‘solve’ stress If you feel that shopping or just spending money from home makes you feel better when you are overly stressed, you are not alone, but you are wrong. This is only going to give us a fleeting sense of relief, but it immediately increases our stress levels when we see the impact on our finances and feel bad about acting...
    The prohibitions that apply to women in Afghanistan violate their freedom and dignity. Photo: WAKIL KOHSAR / . A former judge of Afghan origin, Najla Ayoubi, revealed that in the north of the Asian country the Taliban set a woman on fire after being accused of not knowing how to cook. The above dramatizes the abuse and oppression to which women are subjected in that country, a panorama that is not expected to change under the new Islamic regime despite the promises of radical militants. Women are sent in coffins to neighboring countries to become sex slaves “They are forcing people to feed them or cook for them. Also, in the past weeks, many young women are being sent to neighboring countries in coffins to be used as sex slaves, “Ayoubi told Sky News after speaking with several women in the country. “They are also forcing families to marry off their young daughters to Taliban fighters. I do not see where the promise is that they think that women should be able to work...
    A SELF-made millionaire has controversially claimed that "poor people" only have themselves to blame for their dire financial situations. Derek Moneyberg believes that poverty is a "lifestyle choice" and can be overcome with hard work and perseverance. 5Derek Moneyberg claimed that poverty is a lifestyle choiceCredit: Instagram/derekmoneyberg 5He also said that being rich is a lifestyle choice that he madeCredit: Instagram/derekmoneyberg Your current circumstances are a reflection of your past thoughts and behaviors. He is a testament to this ethos and dragged himself out of poverty after being born into a broken home in the Chicago area with a "crazy" mother and father who was jailed during his formative years. Despite these setbacks, the 42-year-old was determined to be successful and channeled all of his efforts into education – both formally and informally. This saw him excel academically whilst the entrepreneurial awareness he learned through setting up multiple businesses made him a millionaire by the age of 29. After vastly changing his lot in life solely under his own steam, Derek believes that being poor is a "lifestyle choice."...
    A Nebraska Burger King has gone viral on social media, after the staff put up a sign reading: 'We all quit. Sorry for the inconvenience.'   Employees at the Lincoln franchise claimed it had been understaffed for months, while they have had to work in a kitchen with no air conditioning, even as temperatures reached above 90-degrees.    Now ex-general manager Rachael Flores said employees decided to pull the stunt after she put in her two-weeks notice earlier this month, and eight other employees followed suit, she told KLKN. 'They wanted to put up a sign to say, you know "Sorry, there's really not going to be anyone here,'" Flores recounted. 'Just kind of a laugh at upper management.' They joked on July 9 that they should put up a sign outside the store in the Havelock neighborhood telling customers the store wasn't open because they all quit.  The next morning, the employees followed through with their plans, she said. 'I didn't think anyone was going to notice it, because we just did one sign,' she said, and then it went crazy...
    London (CNN Business)The children of immigrants from minority ethnic groups in the United Kingdom are better educated than their White British peers but less likely to be employed, according to new research published Tuesday.Despite coming from poorer economic backgrounds on average, the children of Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi and Black Caribbean immigrants have higher educational qualifications than the White majority.But that has not fully translated into labor market success, according to a report by the Institute for Fiscal Studies, an independent research organization that specializes in public policy analysis. "After leaving education, [second-generation ethnic minorities] are less likely to be employed, and some ethnic groups are less likely to reach managerial/professional occupations, than the White majority," the IFS said in a statement announcing the report's findings.The employment gap remains a problem even when comparing families with similar economic backgrounds, despite educational differences becoming more pronounced. The UK should be having a racial reckoning.

    A year-long study in Australia found companies that fail to prioritize their employees' mental health increases the rate of depression among staff by 300 percent. Researchers at the University of South Australia analyzed psychosocial safety climate (PSC), which refers to policies, practices and procedures for protecting employees' mental health and safety. The team found workplaces that fail to acknowledge employees' hard work and impose unreasonable demands  places workers at a higher risk of developing depression.  Men are also likely to become more depressed because most workplaces tend to overlook their psychological health.

    Bruce Springsteen is the recipient of the 2021 Woody Guthrie Prize for his work carrying on the folk singer's legacy of using his music to highlight the plight of the poor and disenfranchised in the world. Guthrie, who grew up in Okemah, Okla., was one of the most important figures in American folk music and penned hundreds of songs, including some that The Boss has performed over the years. "Woody wrote some of the greatest songs about America’s struggle to live up its ideals in convincing fashion," Springsteen said in a statement Tuesday. The New Jersey rocker called Guthrie, who died in 1967 at age 55, "one of my most important influences."

    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce called on Congress Friday to terminate the additional $300 weekly unemployment benefits after Joe Biden’s poor April jobs report. The Chamber’s Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley stated in a release: The disappointing jobs report makes it clear that paying people not to work is dampening what should be a stronger jobs market. We need a comprehensive approach to dealing with our workforce issues and the very real threat unfilled positions poses to our economic recovery from the pandemic. One step policymakers should take now is ending the $300 weekly supplemental unemployment benefit. Based on the Chamber’s analysis, the $300 benefit results in approximately one in four recipients taking home more in unemployment than they earned working. “The disappointing jobs report makes it clear that paying people not to work is dampening what should be a stronger jobs market."

    A pundit on CNN suggested on Friday that a "factor" that resulted in the disappointing jobs report is that people don't want to be "assaulted" by anti-maskers at work.  The April jobs report released on Friday shocked the nation, which saw just 266,000 jobs created and a rise in unemployment after economists expected roughly 1 million jobs to be created amid the country's economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. When asked why she thought the report resulted below expectations, CNN economics and political commentator Catherine Rampell responded by saying "we don't know exactly." WASHINGTON POST FACT-CHECKER CALLS OUT BIDEN'S SPIN ON DISAPPOINTING JOBS REPORT "Certainly the numbers were much lower than had been expected," Rampell said. "I think there are a number of reasons to be concerned about labor supply being suppressed in some way. You know, workers wanting jobs but still being hesitant to take the jobs and offers." Rampell continued, "Some of that might have to do with, of course, with the fact that they are getting more generous unemployment benefits, but there are a lot of other factors too including lack of access to...
