    (CNN)The story from our colleague was familiar: He watched as Makaite, Tefu and the other men of the Andilukbo clan of Efe bow hunters returned empty handed. It was the third day in a row that they had gone hunting for forest antelope and not caught anything. A leaf bag filled with mushrooms and two giant tree snails was all that seven men had to show for over 200 person-hours of grueling work. Robert MwinyihaliIn the dense tropical forest near Wamba in northeastern Democratic Republic of Congo, Makaite has watched as outsiders strip his traditional lands of wildlife to supply a long-distance market for bushmeat that sees it transported 250 miles by road to Kisangani, and at times, a further 950 miles downriver to the capital Kinshasa. Jean Paul KibambeFor Makaite and his ancestors, wildlife has for millennia provided an essential source of food and, at times of need, cash....
    President Donald Trump has claimed that back in January and February, no one in the U.S. had any way of knowing that COVID-19 — which was spreading rapidly in Mainland China — would become a global pandemic and kill thousands of Americans. But in fact, medical and security experts were sounding the alarm, including a group that has been dubbed the Red Dawn Team. And according to ABC News reporters Matthew Mosk, Kaitlyn Folmer and Josh Margolin, the e-mails the experts sent one another in January and February “now read like a chilling foreshadowing of the unfolding deadly pandemic.” Their e-mail chain discussing COVID-19 started in January and was given the subject line “Red Dawn Rising,” which was a reference to “Red Dawn” — a Cold War-themed 1984 Hollywood action film in which a group of young Americans fought communist invaders. Members of the Red Dawn Team, according to the...

    Medicine or candy? Injury prevention specialists want you to always ask that question when storing and carrying the drugs and vitamins you take as part of your medical regimen. With families living in tight quarantine quarters for months now, medicine mix-ups are increasingly becoming a pediatric emergency room issue. The South Texas Poison Help Center’s latest data shows accidental poisoning with over the counter and prescription medications on the rise during the Covid-19 pandemic. As an example, calls to the center for questions about swallowing melatonin is up 47% this year as compared to last. It’s often mistaken for candy since many versions are gummy form. According to Jennifer Northway, director of injury prevention at University Health System, the mistakes can be sickening, or even deadly. She is part of a group of organizations and agencies that spread awareness of the problem called “Safe Kids.” RELATED: Calls to South Texas...

    Newly-released audio recordings from the investigation into the fatal shooting of Breonna Taylor reveal Louisville Police officers arrived at her home with battering rams despite it being considered a 'soft target' and cops admitting they did not 'anticipate a threat.'

    In fact, the U.S. has the seventh-worst coronavirus case-fatality ratio among the 20 countries facing the worst coronavirus outbreaks in the world, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. According to the data, the United States has a 4.4% case-fatality ratio. Numerous other countries have better case-fatality ratios than that, including Iraq (4.1%), Brazil (4%), and Colombia (3.7). When looking at the number of coronavirus deaths per 100,000 people in a country's population, the United States fares even worse. According to Johns Hopkins, there have been 39.82 deaths per 100,000 Americans in the U.S. That number is second only to the United Kingdom, which has seen 66.66 deaths per 100,000 people. Trump has made the mortality rate lie multiple times, including on Monday, when he tweeted: "Why does the Lamestream Fake News Media REFUSE to say that China Virus deaths are down 39%, and that we now have the lowest Fatality...
    There's been an uptick in shootings in New York City this summer. Reuters Shootings in New York City claimed the lives of at least 11 people over the weekend, police say.  The weekend follows an especially violent June: 250 people were shot in the first 28 days of the month, according to NYPD stats.  On Monday morning, Mayor Bill De Blasio attributed the spike in violence to what might be the "single worst combination of crises New York City has ever faced," including the court closure and coronavirus.  Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer attributed the spike in violence to the coronavirus shutdown and the recession it's caused. NYPD Chief of Department Terry Monahan said bail reform, anti-police rhetoric, and the release of prisoners from Rikers Island play a role. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    One of the three Colorado policemen involved in the killing of Elijah McClain in August was fired on Friday, after receiving photos of officers fooling around and re-enacting McClain's killing, which were shown to McClain's family. Jason Rosenblatt was fired on Friday for receiving the photo. The day before another officer, Jaron Jones resigned from Aurora police for staging the disturbing images. His two co-workers, Erica Marrero and Kyle Dittrich, were fired on Friday for appearing in the photo. The image shows Jones pretending to choke another officer, while Marrero and Dittrich look on and laugh. The police union reacted with anger to Rosenblatt's firing, saying he was only terminated for receiving the photos, which he had no part in making, and saying there had not been sufficient investigation.  McClain, 23, a massage therapist who loved animals and who taught himself to play the guitar and the violin, serenading animals to soothe them,...
    The Navajo Nation has been under lockdown the last two weekends as COVID-19 cases surged to dramatic highs across Arizona and Utah, potentially unraveling weeks of painstaking efforts to keep the virus spread contained. The pandemic has ravaged Navajo land. More people have died here than in 16 states, and the per capita death rate — a tragic toll of 177 per 100,000 residents — is higher than in any single American state. As outbreaks across Florida, Texas and elsewhere make national headlines, the virus rages here too, far from the national consciousness. This unfolding crisis, of course, cannot be separated from decade upon decade of neglect, broken promises and, yes, genocide, that has been inflicted on the Navajo and other indigeneous people by the United States of America. Those centuries of abuse have also created massive structural inequities and day-to-day living conditions that make it harder still to counteract...

    As the vast majority of companies rush to reopen and people rush back to public life, they’re falling into the trap of “getting back to normal.”  They’re not realizing we’re heading into a period of waves of restrictions once again, due to many states reopening too soon. Indeed, some of the states to open early onward have already reimposed some restrictions. This shows that as I predicted in a newspaper editorial way back at the start of the pandemic on March 10, 2020, we will greatly underestimate the pandemic and need to prepare to face rolling waves of restrictions and shutdowns until a vaccine. To avoid the trap of normalcy, we need to understand the parallels between what’s going on now, and what happened at the start of the pandemic. Very many prominent business and political leaders downplayed the pandemic in its early stages. As a result, most business owners and plenty of ordinary citizens initially perceived...
    SNOWPIERCER could be set for its most explosive twist to date, according to the Netflix show's growing fanbase. The dystopian drama is set on a garangtuan train spanning 1001 carriages long, traversing the last of humanity across a frozen, post-apocalyptic Earth. 4 Fans thought they spotted signs of survivors outside of the train in one episode So far it has appeared as though Snowpiercer is the only vehicle of its kind, but after the release of the upcoming episode titles, fans suspect a collision with a rival train could leave the passengers in peril. In the original series of graphic novels, Le Transperceneige, which the series is based upon, it is eventually revealed that there are actually ten trains circling the frozen globe. The most formidable among them is the Icebreaker, which is roughly ten times the size of the Snowpiercer and is an empty , automated train used to...

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A New Hampshire court ruled Friday that some evidence related to the driving and drug use of the pickup driver whose collision with a group of bikers last year left seven motorcyclists dead was admissible in his criminal case. The Superior Court decided that evidence of Volodymyr Zhukovskyy, of West Springfield, Massachusetts, driving erratically earlier in the day of the crash was admissible. It also allowed prosecutor’s request to admit evidence of the defendant’s criminal past including an instance of illegal drug use. But the court denied a request to admit evidence of two instances of Zhukovskyy driving erratically in the past. Zhukovskyy has pleaded not guilty to multiple counts of negligent homicide and driving under the influence and awaits trial. Earlier this month, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu marked a year since the crash happened. Sununu remembered “the fallen seven” at a news conference in Concord...

    ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan’s aviation minister said Wednesday that “human error” on the part of the pilot, the co-pilot and air traffic control caused last month’s plane crash in the port city of Karachi that killed all 97 people on board. The announcement shed new light on the tragedy after Pakistani investigators had earlier said only that the crash resulted from engine failure.

    One of three Louisville, Kentucky, police officers involved in the shooting of Breonna Taylor has been fired from the Louisville Metro Police Department.  On June 19, the city's mayor announced that Brett Hankison would be fired. He was officially terminated on June 23. An official termination letter written by interim Chief of Police Robert Schroeder on June 23 said that Hankison "displayed extreme indifference to the value of human life" by firing rounds indiscriminately into Taylor's apartment while executing a no-knock warrant with two other officers in mid-March.

    Former police officer Anthony Napolitano said on Tuesday that the notion of defunding the police is “ridiculous” and communities, especially in Chicago, need to “step up” to address crime in their own neighborhoods. “I want to see more outrage.

    The coronavirus pandemic has hit Richmond hard. It has caused more cases of COVID-19 and more deaths than in other cities in Contra Costa County like Concord or Walnut Creek. Dr. John Balmes  Why? Richmond is a city that has large Latinx and African-American populations, the groups we know are at most risk of dying from COVID-19. And the neighborhoods in Richmond where people of color live are exposed to more air pollution than many other places in the county. The pollutant that we are especially concerned about in Richmond neighborhoods is fine particulate matter (PM2.5) or “soot.” Where does PM2.5 come from in Richmond? It comes from highways, trains, ships, the Chevron oil refinery and the dust blowing off the coal and petcoke piles at the Levin Terminal. Evidence is building from around the world, including the United States, that living in an area with increased PM2.5 increases the...
    “As many of you know… a Taser is considered as a deadly weapon under Georgia law.” Those are the words of Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard two weeks ago – before he announced murder charges Wednesday against the fired Atlanta police officer who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks on Friday during a confrontation outside a Wendy’s restaurant. Howard’s adamant pronouncement that a Taser is a deadly weapon came in an unrelated criminal case and was made in front of television cameras and microphones. His words will surely come back to haunt him as he attempts to prosecute former Officer Garrett Rolfe on 11 criminal charges including felony murder, which carries the death penalty. The law of self-defense in Georgia is clear: deadly force may be met with deadly force. In fact, deadly force can be used to defend against force that is likely to cause serious bodily injury.

Just two weeks ago, the same DA in the Rayshard Brooks case charged officers with aggravated assault for using a taser on protesters “A taser is considered a deadly weapon under Georgia law”https://t.co/OHYzPQMCJk — Greg Price (@greg_price11) June 17, 2020 Tatum told the Daily Caller that he believes the police shooting of Brooks was justified after analyzing the videos and information available to the public.

    Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano told "Your World" Wednesday that Atlanta authorities likely intend to use former police officer Garrett Rolfe's felony murder charge in the death of Rayshard Brooks to secure conviction on a less serious charge at trial. "The reason you charge all the lesser included offenses, some of which are inconsistent with others because murder requires intent and they have non-intent crimes in there," Napolitano told host Neil Cavuto, "is to give a jury ... an opportunity to compromise. So, the state might actually be gratified with a compromise verdict." RAYSHARD BROOKS KILLING: FORMER ATLANTA OFFICER GARRETT ROLFE CHARGED WITH MURDER, COULD FACE DEATH PENALTY In addition to felony murder, a charge Napolitano said would be "very difficult" to prove, Rolfe is charged with five counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, first-degree criminal damage to property, and four counts of violating his oath as a public officer. If convicted of felony murder, Rolfe could face life in prison or...

    After a destructive April that made 2020 the deadliest year for tornadoes in nine years, the typical peak of severe weather system ended up being on the calmest in decades. The National Weather Service's (NWS) Storm Prediction Center (SPC) did not issue a moderate or high tornado risk for the entire month of May. Evan Bentley, a severe weather meteorologist at the SPC, said last Tuesday on Twitter that he was not able to find any records of such event happening going back through 1995. "Given the pattern for the next 5 days, 2020 will likely be the first," he tweeted. WHERE ARE TORNADOES MOSTLY LIKELY TO HAPPEN IN MAY? That is a rarity in what is usually one of the most active months in "tornado alley." The most active areas for tornadoes in May are in the Plains.

    Ahmaud Arbery. Breonna Taylor. And now, George Floyd. These promising young Americans had their whole lives ahead of them until two white male vigilantes, a rage-filled law enforcement officer, and a no-knock warrant cost them everything. These Americans, who were just like me, were killed simply because they happen to be black in the United States of America. I know that some will attempt to view the lives and deaths of Arbery, Taylor and Floyd in a vacuum. These individuals will also attempt to flip the stories and make you believe that these three Americans’ deaths were standalone incidents that don’t describe the general American experience for people of color. They will also try to urge you to hold judgment until we get all the facts, while bringing up facts about the victims’ past mistakes as if those indiscretions should somehow excuse their deaths. The truth is that the apologists...
