The Joker’s warning for Trump and Democrats

(CNN)The Joker told Batman, “This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.” “As the President faces an impeachment inquiry, he, like any individual facing a serious allegation, has a right to mount a robust defense,” noted Elliot Williams. “However, President Trump’s behavior toward those tasked with congressional oversight and investigations into his personal conduct, and his attitude toward the current congressional impeachment inquiry are all rooted in the same idea: that our country’s basic systems themselves are illegitimate.” Trump is relying on “public mistrust of government” and showing he doesn’t understand the limits on presidential power, Williams wrote. The problem for Democrats is that Trump’s approach may be working, wrote Susan Glasser in the New Yorker. …

How much will this be a climate change election?

But this year something has shifted dramatically, according to YouGov. Chris Curtis, one of its researchers, says that in the most recent poll 27% of voters cited the environment as one of three top issues – behind Brexit and health. That puts it on par with crime and the economy. Image copyright Getty Images The past summer saw record-breaking heatwaves and scientists making it clear that rising temperatures are not a problem for the distant future, but something that’s threatening now. And on top of it all, the revered tones of Sir David Attenborough have been heard by millions, including right now with his new series ‘Seven Worlds, One Planet’, warning that the threat of climate change is real and …

New Animal-Free Testing Method Saves Lab Rats And Advances Research

As beneficial as science has been for humanity, and even our favored animals, tens of millions of lab rats and guinea pigs pay the ultimate price. That toll is about to fall, however, with the development of an animal-free method for testing neurotoxins. Moreover, the new technique is substantially cheaper and vastly faster, offering its inventors a flood of information likely to lead to life-saving medications, and enhancing our understanding of animal evolution at the same time. Many of our most important existing medications come from venoms, most famously captopril, which has prevented millions of heart attacks after its predecessor was discovered in Brazilian vipers. From funnel-web spiders offering the potential to limit post-stroke brain damage to coral reef fish …

Woman Runs Through Swarm Of Flies, Ends Up With Parasitic Worm Reproducing In Her Eyes

A 68-year-old woman from Nebraska started to feel an irritation in her right eye back in March 2018. Upon flushing it with tap water, she found she had dislodged a moving roundworm about half an inch (1.3 centimeters) in length. Looking closer at her eye, she noticed a second moving worm, which she also removed by flushing it with water. She went to see an ophthalmologist the following day, and a third worm was found within her eye and removed. It seems there was quite the party going on in there. The ophthalmologist advised the patient – who was staying in Monterey County, California, at the time – to continue to flush the eye with water and manually extract the worms whenever she found …

‘I’ve been shafted twice’: Stasi victims and their quest for compensation

Systematic degradation by state police resulting in lost careers and poor mental health has been hard to prove for many seeking recompense On a summers day in 1962, a year after the building of Stasi archives documents in which the German Democratic Republics secret police instructed five unofficial collaborators to target her in bars and nightclubs: It is well known, the file said, that Herrmann likes to dance and is happy for her dance partners to invite her to the bar afterwards.

Republicans seek to overturn Key West ban on coral-damaging sunscreens

Backlash to prohibition on reef-harming chemicals frames issue as one of public health focused on skin cancer risk When city leaders in the Florida resort town of Key West voted earlier this year to ban the sale of sunscreens that scientists say are harmful to coral reefs, it was, in the words of mayor Teri Johnston, a black and white issue. Fearful of accelerating the decline of the fragile pursue legislation at the state level seeking to overturn the ban, using the same arguments that failed to stop Hawaii second in the nation for the highest rate of new melanoma cases, state senator Rob Bradley, sponsor of the bill, told the senates industry committee. He said the Key West ban, …

A New Strain Of HIV Identified By Scientists Thanks To Modern Tech

Researchers have identified a new subgroup of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) for the first time in almost two decades. The discovery comes from samples collected during the last 30 years in the Democratic Republic of Congo. As reported in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome, the new strain is called HIV-1 Group M subtype L. Its existence has been suspected for a long time given studies of two samples, one collected in 1983 and one collected in 1990. To confirm the existence of a new strain, it’s necessary to have three independent samples. A sample collected in 2001 showed some promising similarities, but it was difficult to fully sequence. Technological improvements over the last few years have provided researchers with the ability …

Michael Jordan dismissed load management controversy to Hornets players, ex-coach says

Charlotte Hornets coach James Borrego huddles with his team during a break in the first half of the team’s NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Charlotte, N.C., Thursday, Nov. 7, 2019.  (AP) Jordan played all 82 games nine different times in his career and averaged 38 minutes per game. Only 21 players played all 82 games last season, including former Hornets guard Kemba Walker. The number was down from 26 players playing all 82 games during the 2017-19 season. Load management is partially back in the spotlight due to how the Los Angeles Clippers have used Kawhi Leonard. The newly signed free agent sat out a nationally televised game Wednesday against the Milwaukee Bucks. While the NBA determined …

Only children are more likely to be obese, study says

(CNN)Only children may be at a higher risk for obesity than children who have siblings, according to a new study published Wednesday. “Why is that? While this study doesn’t provide the answer to that question, it is helpful in building the body of research that eventually will provide clearer answers,” Muth said. What it means to be an ‘only’ Singletons have long fascinated researchers. Early studies focused on the many negatives society falselybelieved about only children, like the idea that a child would become headstrong, selfish, egocentric, competitive, excessively spoiled and unable to share if raised by themselves. Or, that most would likely turn into self-absorbed hypochondriacs. “A lot of people assumed only children are defective, and so a lot …

Puppy Dies From Heart Attack After Being Terrified By Firework Display

Every year on November 5, the UK celebrates the death of a man who failed to blow up Parliament in 1605 by burning his effigy in a massive fire and setting off explosives willy nilly, needlessly injuring ourselves in the process. It’s a bizarre tradition, and one not short of unnecessary risks.  Over 400 years after Robert Catesby and his gang of plotters (including the much more famous Guy Fawkes) attempted and failed to blow up the Houses of Parliament, they may have claimed another victim: An 18-week-old terrier. A pet owner says that her puppy died of a heart attack after being terrified by firework displays in the local area. The dog’s owner – Susan Paterson – wrote in a viral post …

This Army veteran is helping to take the fight to lung cancer

(CNN)An Army combat veteran who is facing the fight of her life has joined forces with a former NFL player to raise awareness in the battle against lung cancer. 1 in 16 Americans will be diagnosed with lung cancer in their lifetime. One person is diagnosed with lung cancer every 2.3 minutes. More than 228,000 will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year. 60% to 65% of all new lung cancer diagnoses are among people who have never smoked or are former smokers. Source: Lungevity Foundation “I had zero clue I had lung cancer. I had a little dry cough that wouldn’t go away. It annoyed my husband more than it did me,” Downs said.

Flu vaccine delay for some schoolchildren

‘Flu is still dangerous’ say couple who lost son Biggest NHS flu campaign under way Flu vaccine delays ‘likely’ in no-deal Brexit AstraZeneca, which supplies the vaccine to the NHS, said it needed “to repeat some tests before a portion of our [Fluenz Tetra] vaccine supply can be released and delivered”. The delay would affect about a quarter of the overall vaccine ordered, Public Health England said, but the problems were not related to the safety or efficacy of the vaccine itself. Deliveries to some schools in Northern Ireland are also delayed, and likely to be around the UK, because PHE buys and orders vaccine stock for all the devolved nations. Dr Mary Ramsay, head of immunisation at PHE, said: …
