    For many, feeding birds at ponds and parks is a cherished childhood memory; one they lovingly recreate for their children and grandchildren. Tragically, thousands of birds die annually due to a condition overwhelmingly caused by people who don’t know this beloved activity can be deadly. What is Angel Wing? “Angel wing” is a deformity commonly found in ducks, geese, swans, and other waterfowl. There has been little scientific study done on the condition, yet most wildlife and waterfowl experts agree the overwhelming cause of angel wing is an unhealthily-high protein and/or carbohydrate-based diet. The disorder causes the last joint in one or both wings to unnaturally twist outward, rather than lying flat against the bird’s body.

    When President Trump’s medical team first appeared outside Walter Reed Army Medical Center for a press briefing last Saturday, the sight of those white coats was comforting to many people. With the president checked into the hospital, diagnosed with COVID-19 and experiencing symptoms, his doctors were our only source of reliable medical information. Most of us, when afflicted with health issues, cherish a zone of privacy, but the president is different. A president’s medical condition is not only a matter of public interest. It’s a matter of national security, capable of shifting global markets. So, on the question of how much to tell the public about the president’s condition, history would recommend transparency.

    In an interview broadcast on Sunday, CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, accused President Donald Trump’s medical team of withholding information from the public, Raw Story reported. State of the Union host Jake Tapper began the discussion by arguing that “there is a long and ugly history” of doctors and health professionals helping presidents hide information about their health and asked Gupta to weigh in on Dr. Sean Conley’s behavior in recent days. During a press conference on Sunday, contradicting his prior statements, Conley — who is head of Trump’s medical team — admitted that Trump experienced a drop in blood oxygen levels and that he was put on supplemental oxygen. A day earlier, he repeatedly dodged questions, refusing to say whether the commander-in-chief ever needed to be put on oxygen, which created confusion. “I have to say, they are hiding things,” Gupta charged, suggesting that Conley should not...

    During a press conference on Sunday, White House physician Dr. Sean Conley revealed that President Donald Trump is being treated with dexamethasone, BuzzFeed News reported. As a a corticosteroid that suppresses the immune system, dexamethasone is typically used to for the treatment of COVID-19 in patients with severe disease. Conley noted that Trump is being treated with the drug because his oxygen levels dropped twice since he was diagnosed with coronavirus. According to Bob Wachter, chair of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, “both of those pieces of data tell us you cannot call this a mild disease.” Conley and White House officials have been releasing conflicting information about the president’s condition and dodging questions from the press, but when Conley revealed that Trump was given two liters of supplemental oxygen it became clear why he was treated with dexamethasone, Wachter said. “Obviously, he’s getting world-class care, but...

    WASHINGTON — Democratic senators are highlighting that COVID-19 is the newest pre-existing medical condition. That means people who had the disease could be denied health insurance if the Obama-era health law is overturned. See:Coronavirus update: U.S. death toll tops 201,000, as daily tally more than doubles The death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg means there are no longer five justices on the court who have previously upheld the Affordable Care Act. That law forbids insurers from turning down people with health problems or charging them more. “Any diagnosis of COVID will likely become a pre-existing condition,” said Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn. “We will see rates skyrocket for anybody who has had COVID.” The U.S. flag flies beside the Capitol dome.

If they have other problems, that’s what it really affects, that’s it. You know, in some states thousands of people, nobody young. Below the age of 18, like nobody. They have a strong immune system. Who knows? Take your hat off to the young, because they have a hell of an immune system. But it affects virtually nobody. It’s an amazing thing.” Cooper replied, “It affects elderly people. That’s it, he says. Among anyone else, it affects virtually nobody in his words — virtually nobody. Actually, Mr. President, it has affected and sickened and killed people in every age group, from toddlers to the oldest Americans. We’ve...

    For years I have harbored a shameful secret: I once helped solve a Rubik’s Cube, but it was entirely by accident, and I’ve been too proud to ever try to complete the puzzle again. I wish I could brag and say I mastered the puzzle of the Rubik’s Cube through sheer cerebral power. Yet the nine-year-old version of myself who accomplished this feat was barely paying attention at the time. I was spending a weekend afternoon with my friend, Casey, who had been intermittently turning its various faces for several minutes. When he  shouted an unrepeatable expletive, I looked down to see that I had almost solved the damn thing. We studied it together and finished it in a few minutes, then bragged about it to our elementary school chums. They expected us to repeat the task. We never could. I’d always wondered what the cube’s creator, Ernő Rubik, would think of my experience, and I finally got...

    Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid. (Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images) Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid made headlines during Week 1 when he wore a face shield in the team’s season opener against the Houston Texans. In theory, it was ingenious. In concept, a little problematic for the veteran playcaller. It wouldn’t stop fogging up. Andy Reid vs. his face shield ???? #ChiefsKingdom pic.twitter.com/AV8c25JDmU — The MMQB (@theMMQB) September 11, 2020 Though he’ll be keeping the face shield for Week 2, ESPN reported Sunday Big Red will be making a slight modification. Per Chiefs equipment manager Allen Wright, the reigning Super Bowl victor will be using a product beloved by professional hockey players to defog their masks. So, expect less jokes and more touchdowns in the weeks moving forward. The malfunctioning mask didn’t seem to deter the 62-year-old from doing his job. Kansas City...

    SAN ANTONIO – Diabetes and heart conditions are the most common underlying medical conditions for people who have died from and been hospitalized with COVID-19 in Bexar County. San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg announced the new data from Metro Health during Wednesday evening’s briefing. The data showed that 37 percent of people hospitalized with COVID-19 have diabetes, and 15 percent have a heart condition.

    Receiving oral sex may trigger the condition bacterial vaginosis because germs in the mouth can disrupt those that occur naturally in the vagina. A study has found that a bacteria that is commonly found in people's mouths, and can contribute to gum disease, is linked to the embarrassing infection. Bacterial vaginosis only causes symptoms in around half of women who get it but those who do show signs complain of a 'fishy' smell and unusual discharge. Scientists say a woman may be more likely to develop the condition, known as BV, if she receives unprotected oral sex. The mouth bacteria have been found to 'support' the growth of vaginal bacteria that cause BV and the two form 'mutually beneficial relationships', researchers said. Not much had been known about how bacteria from other parts of the body contributed to the infection and scientists now say studies should be done to see...
