    This Wednesday, Cuatro issued Horizon. The first part of the program was focused on COVID-19, and experts such as Dr. César Carballo expressed concern about something that the latest research points to: the new strains detected have a considerably longer active process than the acquaintance. Therefore, they were alarmed at how dangerous it is for those who suffer them to be subjected to isolation for 12 days, when they should be about 20 because they are still infective. In the second part of the format, the debate was raised as to whether the riots were a legitimate method of activism. The issue came after the controversial images that have been seen in many places on the peninsula after the arrest of Pablo Hasel. In addition to the most recurring guests, the youtuber joined the appointment A straight white guy and the political scientist Alán Barroso. For his part,...
    New York : Many Latino children play soccer in the parks, other baseball, and other sports. Photo: Juan Mabromata / . / . Many young people from minority communities in the city New Yorkers are big sports fans, like the Dominicans with baseball and the Mexicans with soccer, and some are talented enough to stand out in competitionsBut without sufficient support to develop their sporting potentials, a large majority of these athletes fail to reach the next level. And to change this reality, Councilor Ydanis Rodríguez is promoting a bill that would create the Mayor’s Office of Sports and Recreation, which would be responsible for creating strategies and initiatives to support the sports activities in five borough neighborhoods and create a single channel for underprivileged children to be placed in shows and competitions. “We do not have a single office that has been designated and...
    SINGLE Carol Vorderman has admitted lockdown restrictions have kept her out of the "mischief that keeps her young". The former Countdown star said her usual antics have been off limits since Covid rules have meant that she hasn't been allowed to invite anyone back to her home. 5Carol Vorderman admitted lockdown rules have kept her out of the 'mischief that keeps her young’Credit: supplied by Pixel8000 Speaking on Morning Live earlier today about how she has been coping alone in lockdown, Carol, 60, said: "My mum lived with me for decades, you know I was my mum’s full time carer.

    A long sequence takes us in the middle of a wedding between the two distinguished young men from wealthy families. But the story is not about a party, or romances or family relationships. Rebellion, chaos, repression and brutality are right around the corner, or on screen in a few minutes. The indigenous and the poorest have started a revolution against the old power that oppresses them. Although it is set in the indeterminate near future, New order of Michel Franco is inspired by the numerous social protests that take place all over the world, especially the #BlackLivesMatter, and so many other current and perfectly recognizable. A powder keg ready to explode anytime, anywhere, even if the setting here is Mexico. As a social and political parable about inequalities, the film spares no raw moments of barbarism and atrocities, with the voice of protest of the less favored, appeased in...
    GENTLE READERS: That it is acceptable to be rude so long as you provide a justification for your behavior is not, Miss Manners assures you, correct. But neither is it an unusual ploy. Take the cases of a young lady who detests carrots, a young gentleman recently converted to vegetarianism out of concern for the planet, and an older gentleman with a life-threatening allergy to shellfish. The older gentleman has spent a lifetime quietly avoiding shrimp cocktails. His friends and relatives know his situation and keep an eye out for him. But he must still wearily abide the rude dinner partner who insists on knowing why he is not eating the clam chowder — which she assures him is really delicious. The young gentleman is passionate that it is everyone else, not himself, who is at fault: They are either unaware of the cruel and destructive nature of the meat...
    (CNN)At age nine, Nicodemus Madehdou moved from Monrovia, Liberia to Philadelphia and discovered how video games could connect him to a new culture. Always a puzzle aficionado, Madehdou liked the ways that visual exercises could be translated into the virtual world through gaming. "I wasn't immediately into gaming because at first, I was trying to just understand my environment. But when I started, it connected me to things I'd never known about."First, Madehdou played individual games, but as he grew more comfortable, he competed with other people. In this way, video games became an immersive way to navigate a new culture and make friends. Now he creates space for other young people to bridge their own cultural gaps through his video game production studio. With hopes to diversify the industry and create games representative of the increasingly diverse gamers who may play them, JumpButton Studios is sparking change in an...
    Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt has reportedly resigned from its board amid scandal facing the anti-Trump super PAC. Schmidt's resignation on Friday, revealed by Axios, comes after former employees singled him out in an open letter accusing the Lincoln Project of mishandling sexual harassment allegations leveled against co-founder John Weaver. The former employees claim that Schmidt and others within the Lincoln Project knew last summer that Weaver allegedly tried to solicit sex from young men by offering them professional advancement.  The resignation comes as Fox News also reported he had bought a million-dollar home in Utah as the Lincoln Project raked in huge profits.
    An Oklahoma man shot dead his two young daughters while on the phone with his wife and told her ‘How do you like that?’ before eventually turning the gun on himself in what police are calling a murder-suicide. Investigators in Sand Springs said they received a call just before 1pm from the girls’ mother who was at work at the time. She told police that moments earlier she was on the phone with her husband. During their conversation, he threatened to kill their two daughters as well as himself, police told Sand Springs Leader. The woman, who works some 20 minutes away from the family’s home on South Walnut Creek Drive, asked officers to do a welfare check at the home. Police said the woman told investigators that she and her husband had been having marital problems for months and that her husband had made threats before, though nothing as...

    The deputy of the PP and future president of New Generations, Bea fanjul, has participated this Tuesday in a campaign act of the ‘popular’ in Mataró. Fanjul has charged against the pro-independence leaders, whom he accuses of being « selfish, manipulative, liars, who do not even care about the future of their young people. » In a campaign event with the candidate of the ‘popular’ Alejandro Fernandez, Bea Fanjul has assured that Catalan nationalism is « suffocating and prevailing » and manipulates young people. If there is anyone who knows what it is to suffer from harassment and nationalist pressure from a young age, it is Bea Fanjul, the only PP deputy for the Basque Country, and who for years has denounced in her land the situation of Basques who do not agree with ideals of the proetarras or the nationalism of the PNV. Now, it is time to denounce the same in Catalonia....

    When it comes to Covid, our lungs are ‘ground zero’. They are one of the primary routes the virus uses to get into the body. But early on in the pandemic, chest X-ray scans revealed something else: where the images should be black, indicating healthy air-filled tissue, in many cases there was a white mist described as resembling ‘ground glass’. It’s the telltale sign of pneumonitis – inflamed lungs as a result of the body’s immune response to the virus. But in the case of Covid, the damage often seems to be far worse and more extensive than with similar illnesses such as flu. This distinctive pattern became known as ‘Covid lung’, and many doctors now say they’re almost able to diagnose the disease just by looking at one of these images. The worst affected end up on ventilators in intensive care, fighting for breath. About a third don’t make...
    The Lincoln Project appeared to have scrubbed association with its co-founder John Weaver on its site after allegations that Weaver sent unwanted, uncomfortable and sexually suggestive messages to nearly a dozen young men. A search of The Lincoln Project’s “Our Team” page, where Weaver was listed, leads to a page that doesn’t exist. An archive of the page shows that it existed as of January 11, and listed Weaver. Two days prior, journalist Ryan Girdusky said in a tweet that young men had sent him screenshots of predatory messages allegedly from Weaver, a political consultant who formerly worked for the John McCain presidential campaigns and then on former Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s presidential campaign.

    “Laye is regularized! And he resumes work Tuesday!”, Assured Mr. Ravacley, reached by telephone after an interview with the secretary general of the prefecture. Stéphane Ravacley and Laye Fodé Traoré, an 18-year-old Guinean subject to an obligation to leave French territory (OQTF), were received Thursday in the prefecture of Haute-Saône. At the announcement of his regularization, the young man “practically cried”, confided his apprenticeship master. “He thanked his boss, his educators and the French state,” added Mr. Ravacley. “It’s a great joy, a victory. Now we will also fight for the others” who are in the same case elsewhere in France, he added. Supported in France as an isolated minor, Laye Fodé Traoré did not obtain a residence permit when he reached majority. The prefecture considered until now that the identity documents of the young man were not authentic. But their recent validation by the Embassy of Guinea, which...
    New York : Like other countries, Indonesia is implementing a massive, free COVID-19 vaccination program, but with a very different approach than the others. Instead of vaccinating the elderly in the first phase of application, the first doses – after health workers – will be for workers between 18 and 59 years old. President Joko Widodo, 59, has volunteered to be first in line. Vice President Ma’ruf Amin, 77, will not receive the injection soon, because he is too old. Why is this unusual approach? Professor Amin Soebandrio, who has advised the government on its “youth first” strategy, argues that it makes sense to prioritize the immunization of workers, those “who leave the house everywhere and then return home at night. with their families”. “We are targeting those likely to spread the virus “, he told BBC Indonesia. He explains that this approach will give the country the best...
    Israel has leaped ahead in the global vaccine race by squeezing every last dose out of its vaccine supplies and using its efficient health system to launch a 24/7 immunisation drive with military help - with Benjamin Netanyahu making himself as visible as possible as he bids for re-election in March.  Some 1.4million Israelis have already had a dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech jab, with nearly a sixth of the 8.7million population immunised against Covid-19 in less than three weeks.    Nearly 146,000 people received the jab on Monday alone - more than some Western countries including Italy, Spain and Canada have distributed in total - with jabs being given out in sports arenas and military reservists being drafted in to help.  While only Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines have been used so far, Israel has also had deals in place with Moderna and AstraZeneca since before any of the jabs were approved.  It has...
    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced Monday that all of the officers involved in the botched raid on Anjanette Young’s home have been placed on desk duty just a day after the city's top lawyer resigned amid claims he tried to hide the bodycam footage of the incident.  Footage of the raid showed Chicago police executing a search warrant at Young's apartment. Young, who is a social worker, was naked and continued to protest her innocence to officers during the February 2019 incident.  Lightfoot made the announcement during a press conference, telling reporters that 'justice delayed is justice denied' as she criticized the Civilian Office of Police Accountability (COPA).  The COPA will be conducting an investigation into the behavior of the officers involved.  'We must respect COPA's independence, but as I have repeatedly told COPA's chief administrator, I firmly believe in the value that justice delayed is justice denied and frankly...

    Word is that the Houston Rockets are exploring other James Harden trade partners than the Nets or 76ers. Where else could he go? Reports are that James Harden is seeking a trade to either the Nets or 76ers but both of those options are looking increasingly unlikely. There were reports yesterday that the 76ers were finally open to putting Ben Simmons on the table but that seems like an absurdly obvious leak by the Rockets to put pressure on Philadelphia. Especially when Daryl Morey said later in the evening that they were committed to Simmons. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski also reported that the Rockets were starting to look further afield for teams willing to trade for Harden. If Philadelphia and Brooklyn are off the table, what else is out there?Where else could the Houston Rockets trade James Harden?

    Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has admitted she knew back in 2019 about the botched no-knock raid where cops handcuffed an innocent naked black social worker and that the female victim did file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for the bodycam footage - one day after she denied it. Lightfoot claimed on Wednesday that she had only learned this week about the February 2019 raid on the home of 50-year-old Anjanette Young, the same day the shocking bodycam footage of the incident was made public.  'The first I knew of this incident was yesterday morning - the search warrant, the video, and the actions of the law department,' she said Wednesday, adding: 'The first thing I knew of any of this was yesterday morning.'  She also denied Young had filed a FOIA request with the Chicago Police Department for bodycam footage from the incident and branded media reports that she...
    A FATHER has been crushed to death by airplane equipment following a horrific accident in Chicago. Jijo George, 35, from Des Plaines, was struck while working in the hanger at O’Hare International Airport. 4Jijo George pictured with his wife, Annie Jose and young daughterCredit: GoFundMe 4The horrific accident took place at O'Hare International AirportCredit: Getty Images - Getty Mr George, a father of one whose wife is also eight-months-pregnant, suffered multiple injuries in the terrifying incident, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

    On May 3, 2016, Virginia Roberts was cross-examined in a U.S. court, having brought a defamation action against Ghislaine Maxwell, who had accused her of lying. Maxwell's lawyer asked her: 'Again, is there more than one truth, Miss Roberts?' She replied: 'No, there's not more than one truth.' Not more than one truth, perhaps. But there is sometimes more than one version of an alleged event. And on occasion these versions can seem to vary or evolve into a different scenario altogether. In 2011, Miss Roberts wrote the draft of a personal memoir. Titled The Billionaire Playboys' Club, it describes her life from sexual abuse in childhood, homelessness and drug-taking in her teenage years, through being 'recruited' as an underage 'sex slave' by Epstein and Maxwell to her escape and redemptive marriage to her Australian husband, Rob Guiffre. She offered the manuscript to at least two U.S. literary agents with...
    During the Victorian era, 'mummy parties' were hosted to unwrap the outer layers in order to take a glance at what mysterious lay behind the cloth, but today's researchers are working on new methods that do not 'destroy the integrity of the object.' A team from Northwestern University used powerful X-rays for the first time in the scientific community to see through the wrapping of a 1,900-year-old mummy. Researchers used a combination of computed tomography (CT) and CT-guided synchrotron X-ray diffraction mapping, which is capable to identifying different materials, objects and bones. The examinations provided a number of details about the mummy – the person was a girl about five years old and buried with a scarab amulet that was meant to spiritually protect the body as it travels to the afterlife. The analysis also revealed that the young girl's skeleton is still well preserved and shows no sign of...
    New The Young and the Restless spoilers tease that although Rey arrested Billy, he believes that Adam likely set up the man. However, not everybody in Genoa City agrees with the detective’s assessment of the situation. Head writer and co-executive producer recently told Soap Opera Digest about the upcoming storyline. Rey (Jordi Vilausos) stops by to see Adam (mark Grossman) and informs him that he arrested Billy (Jason Thompson) in Chance’s (Donny Boaz) shooting. The bullet was meant for Adam. There’s just one problem, though. Rey doesn’t believe Billy is the person who pulled the trigger. The evidence that pointed at Billy seems all a bit too neat. It reeks of a setup to Rey. Adam listens as Rey explains his theory that the actual shooter is still on the lamb because Adam himself made it out to look like Billy tried to shoot him. Unknown to both men, Chelsea...
    TIME Magazine has announced its first-ever Kid of the Year – 15-year-old scientist and inventor Gitanjali Rao.  Roa's love for science began at the age of 10 when she discovered carbon nanotube sensor technology, which uses molecules to detect chemicals in water, and her passion grew from there. Prior to being named Kid of the Year, Roa was listed on the Forbes 30 Under 30 List for developing a mobile device in 2017 to test for lead in drinking water – an innovation she made to address the Flint, Michigan water crisis. Her most recent project is an app called Kindly that uses artificial intelligence to detect cyberbullying online at an early stage. Roa was selected from a group of more than 5,000 nominees, but judges were astonished by her use of technology to combat a number of social issues ranging from contaminated water to opioid addiction and cyberbullying.

    New York Yankees: Buck Showalter recommends that the rotation should “go young” By: Nathan Solomon November 24, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditOn YES Network’s “Hot Stove”, analyst Buck Showalter suggested that the New York Yankees rotation should “go young”. The Yankees rotation is in a roster turnover, with many of their arms from 2020 hitting the free agency market this winter. They could choose to go to free agency to staff the rotation, or focus on in-house options. Some of those in-house options include Jordan Montgomery, Deivi Garcia, and Clarke Schmidt. All three of these guys have had opportunities in the majors, with Montgomery being on the roster since 2017. Montgomery pitched to a 9-7 in 2017, his rookie season. He had a 3.88 ERA 144 strikeouts and a 1.230 WHIP over 155.1 innings, finishing sixth in Rookie of the Year voting. He would...
    Jill Duggar's husband Derick Dillard told fans that the reason members of their family marry so young and so quickly is because they're in a hurry to have sex.

    A fundraising campaign for the babysitter tasked with looking after 'Borat's daughter' in Sacha Baron Cohen's comedy sequel has raised more than $54,000 after the woman revealed she thought the film was a documentary.  Jeanise Jones, a 62-year-old Oklahoma City grandmother, was recruited by the team behind 'Borat 2' to film several scenes with 15-year-old Tutar, played by adult actress Maria Bakalova.  Jones believed she had been hired to look after the girl as part of a documentary about child brides and women's rights, and only learned that the movie was satirical when a friend told her about the trailer in October.   Fans have now flocked to thank her by paying into a GoFundMe campaign started by her pastor, who revealed that she was paid only $3,600 and recently lost her job of 32 years because of the coronavirus pandemic.    Scroll down for video   Jeanise Jones, a 62-year-old Oklahoma...
    Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call/AP For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.Artist and prop-maker Dara Williamson visited the gynecologist for the first time when she was 25, after realizing that her health coverage on her mother’s high-quality insurance plan was set to expire on her 26th birthday. Williamson, now 34, says that an ultrasound that day in 2012 revealed “two giant cysts where my ovaries should have been”—so large that her doctor feared she could suffer ovarian torsion, in which the ovaries painfully twist around on themselves. A team of doctors decided that she needed a laparoscopic cystectomy, and she had the surgery just days before her insurance lapsed. Williamson was able to stay on her mother’s plan as long as she did in part because she lived in Illinois, which had passed a law in 2008 requiring insurance companies to...
    More Americans may be wearing masks than they did last spring, but other behaviors recommended to prevent the spread of the epidemic have not kept pace, a new federal survey has found. Data show that young people are less likely to take the necessary steps to prevent the virus. The proportion of American adults wearing a mask rose from 78% in April to 89% in June National Representative Survey Published Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But the survey found no change or decline in other behaviors aimed at preventing the spread of the corona virus, such as changing hands, social exclusion and avoiding public or crowded places. “Interesting data,” Dr. Carlos del Rio, Professor of Global Health and Epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University wrote in an email to NPR. Del Rio was not involved in conducting the survey, which appears...
    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said she considered being 'public enemy No. 1' on President Trump's list 'a good thing.' The Bronx congresswoman even called the label a 'badge of honor' while speaking with actress and activist Jane Fonda during a 'Fire Drill Friday' interview for Greenpeace. 'If the worst and most authoritarian, borderline — or probably, actually — fascistic president in modern history considers me public enemy No. 1, I think that’s a good thing. I’m doing a great job,' Ocasio-Cortez, 31, told Fonda.  Ocasio-Cortez and members of 'The Squad,' a group of four Democratic Congresswomen, have been repeated targets of President Trump.   Actress Jane Fonda (left) and Rep.

    A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study cautioned of the “urgent need” to combat the spread of the coronavirus among young Americans. The study, released Friday, said young adults infected with the virus often result in older, more vulnerable Americans contracting it as well. The CDC study “provides evidence that among young adults, those aged 18-24 years demonstrate the earliest increases in percent positivity; and underscore the importance of reducing transmission from younger populations to those at highest risk for severe illness or death.” The study added that “addressing transmission among young adults is an urgent public health priority.” The study contradicted rhetoric from President Donald Trump and other Republican officials, who have often advocated for allowing young and low-risk Americans to get back to their lives while simultaneously vowing to “protect the vulnerable,” The Hill reported. (RELATED: Celebs React To Trump’s ‘Don’t Be Afraid’ Remark) The study also found...
    COVID-19 isn’t the first hardship to affect many members of the Osage Cafe community, operations manager Lori Laurita says. Still, this year has proven to be a roller coaster that’s underscored the importance of listening to customers and adapting to their needs. Osage Café, supported by the Denver Housing Authority (DHA), serves the La Alma/Lincoln Park neighborhood with fresh meals while also operating a culinary arts training and employment program for underserved Denver youth. The nonprofit restaurant's holistic approach to both food and education has inspired staff to think creatively about how best to provide its services during stay-at-home and safer-at-home measures. Laurita says that mental health check-ins with trainees and people in the neighborhood have been just as important as providing food and employment opportunities. The idea for the cafe began over a decade ago at a food bank in the Platte Valley where DHA started the Youth Culinary...
    Prince Harry has frankly confessed to having a blazing temper — and as for his elder brother, well, he has proved no Sweet William when roused. In the years following her 2005 marriage to Prince Charles, William's new stepmother confided her surprise to her family and to her close friends at this unexpected side to Prince Charming — 'The boy's got a temper!' Camilla had been horrified by the ranting and raving that William could unleash on occasions against her husband — letting rip with no apparent inhibition in her presence. In the years following her 2005 marriage to Prince Charles (pictured), Camilla said she was surprised by William's temper The rows had been earth-shattering, by her account, with William doing the shouting and Charles submitting meekly. As she's described these distressing episodes, William would hold nothing back. He could summon up a wrath to match the importance that...
    Dwayne Haskins’ agent is publicly beefing with the Washington Football Team. Prior to Washington’s game against the Ravens this past weekend, a report came out from Ian Rapoport that Haskins might be benched if he didn’t play well.

    How 2020 became the summer of activism both online and offline An angry woman wrecked the wine display at a supermarket after being asked to follow COVID-19 one-way system The Secret Weapon That Frazzled, Frayed Parents Already Have at Home I went into labor on the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration, and my daughter, J., was born the day after, as women marched in numbers on the Capitol. She was a massive young lady, in the pink of health. Throughout her early childhood, I wondered many times whether her birthdate means she’s cursed to live in the worst America yet. In 2020, I’ve realized that whatever her timing might mean for her own quality of life, having a very young, very oblivious person to care for through these years of panic has been an absolute godsend for my own mental health. © Provided by Slate Photo illustration by Slate....
    More than 513,000 Americans aged 0-18 have been infected by COVID-19. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Tuesday that Donald Trump was "telling people the truth" when he claimed at a rally the night before that "virtually nobody" had been affected by coronavirus. Trump made his remarks while discussing the effects of the virus on young people. "Below the age of 18," he claimed, "like, nobody" had been lost to the virus, attributing this to possibly "strong immune systems." "Take your hat off to the young, because they have a hell of an immune system. But it affects virtually nobody," he added, before calling for schools to reopen.

    A year after the 2016 election, I overheard my first conversation in which two young men of color discussed the political issues of the day. I don’t remember what they were going on about, but the fact that they were going on about politics—and with such fervor!—was what struck immediately, as young men discussing politics was a rarity in my working-class Miami neighborhood, where typically it was older men who engaged in these sometimes heated discussions. Sitting across from them at Starbucks, I noted their interaction as an entertaining anomaly and chalked it up to the current hyper-politicized cultural moment in which anyone, at any time, might surprise you with their clearly newfound interest in politics. Which is to say that I expected to encounter no more than a handful of these political squabbles between young men of color in the ensuing years of the Trump era, as the possibility...
    A lifestyle blogger who lost her father to melanoma has issued a warning about the deadly disease after finding a tiny cancerous spot on her own leg a year later. Louise Hay visited Bondi Junction's Skin Cancer Clinic in Sydney three months ago for a routine check of her moles only to be told that one very insignificant-looking freckle was actually a dangerous cancer. 'This time last year I lost my dad to melanoma, so ever since then I've been super vigilant about getting my skin checked,' she said in an Instagram Story. 'Last week was my one year check up and they found a little mole on my leg which they removed and sent off to get checked, to find out what it was, and yesterday I found out it was a melanoma.'

    You only need ten minutes with a cat ragdoll to fall madly in love with this breed. They are one of the perfect cats to live with children for being so loving and docile. It could change their minds to those who say that “I am not very catlike” and not only because sometimes these animals adopt dog behaviors such as going to meet you at the door of the house but because they will give you so much affection that you will even have than tell him to stop chasing you around the house. This is the ragdoll cat, a feline that it can weigh 10 kilos and measure almost a meter from the whiskers to its tail. Its origin is highly questioned but it is said that arose in California in the 60s and that they became official breed from the 70’s. The person...
    Viewers have hit out at Netflix employees Meghan, Harry and the Obamas as the two couples stay 'silent' on controversial French film Cuties.   Thousands of people have already launched a call to boycott the streaming giant on Thursday over 'Mignonnes' - known as 'Cuties' in English - angry that its young stars were portrayed in a sexualized way. The film is directed by French-Senegalese director Maimouna Doucoure, and started streaming September 9. More than 200,000 tweets with the hashtag '#CancelNetflix' became the top trending topic one day later. Harry and Meghan signed a deal thought to be worth $150 million with the network earlier this year. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who have never produced a TV show, will make documentaries, films, scripted and kids’ programmes.  Former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama announced in 2018 they had entered a multi-year producing partnership with the online streaming service.  ...
    Vaping increases the risk of developing breast cancer, a new study suggests. In another hammer blow to the vaping industry, scientists from a group of American universities, including Yale, Johns Hopkins and Princeton, found exposure to e-cigarette vapour creates a 'tumour-promoting environment' in the breast and elsewhere in the body. Professor Kefah Mokbel, a surgeon at the London Breast Institute at the Princess Grace Hospital, said the findings should be a wake-up call to those who think the devices are harmless. 'This study provides a good level of evidence that vaping has the potential to induce breast cancer and promote its progression and spread to the lungs,' he said.

    Shutterstock Age is the most significant risk factor for cancer, and the median age for a cancer diagnosis is 66 years old. While cancer in kids, teens, and young adults is pretty rare, there are at least 11 different forms of cancer that are on the rise in young people. Doctors suspect that lifestyle factors like poor diets and extra body fat may play a key role in fueling some of these cancers, which include colon, kidney, and pancreas cases. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.   Make no mistake about it, age is still the number one risk factor for developing cancer. The median age for a cancer diagnosis in the US today is 66 years old. Usually, cancer hits older folks hardest, as cells age and sustain more cancer-causing DNA damage. But not always.  According to the American Cancer Society, fewer than 1 in 100 cancer...
    Trees with faster growth rates die younger across multiple countries and species, which reduces overall carbon storage capacity, a new study claims. Researchers analysed tree-ring data of more than 200,000 records of 82 species across Europe, Asia and the Americas.  They found tree faster growth is being offset by earlier mortality and release of the carbon back into the atmosphere.  Many scientists believe planting more trees will offset the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions generated from human activity.  But shorter lifespans of trees will actually make them grow fast and have a much shorter lifespan to absorb the CO2 than anticipated, the new study claims. The new study further calls into question predictions that greater tree growth means greater carbon storage in forests in the long term.        Nothofagus pumilio (southern beeches) forests around Lago Argentino, in the Andes of southern Patagonia, Argentina, showing groups of dead trees in relation...
    (CNN)The number of American young adults living with their parents is at or near an all-time high, and the coronavirus pandemic is likely the reason, according to a new analysis.A new report by the Pew Research Center found that a majority of young adults -- 52% -- lived with one or both of their parents in July. Pew's analysis of monthly Census Bureau data notes that this is higher than any previous measurement."Before 2020, the highest measured value was in the 1940 census at the end of the Great Depression, when 48% of young adults lived with their parents," says the report, published Friday. "The peak may have been higher during the worst of the Great Depression in the 1930s, but there is no data for that period."Pew defines young adults as 18- to 29-year-olds.

    SAN FRANCISCO — The first car has rolled into the station, but it’s the trains behind Bart that will give the San Francisco Giants a chance to operate smoothly into the 2020s. Top prospect Joey Bart arrived at Oracle Park with a bang on Thursday, delivering a 109.5 mile per hour double down the left field line in a 10-5 victory over the Angels. Bart’s highly anticipated debut will go down as one of the most exciting moments of the Giants’ 2020 season and not only because the team’s new starting catcher helped the club to its first three-game win streak of the year. Bart will remain in the lineup to help the Giants of the present, but it’s future teams that will benefit most from the 23-year-old dipping his toes into the water along the shores of McCovey Cove. Bart is expected to be a leader of the team’s...
    Former presidential contender Beto O’Rourke predicted the end of “Trumpism” if Joe Biden is able to notch a win in reliably red Texas. O’Rourke, the former Texas congressman who ran a closer-than-expected 2018 midterm challenge to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, said that if Biden is able to capture Texas, it would be a “seismic” event that would “once and for all end the Trump presidency and Trumpism in America” Tuesday at an Axios event. O’Rourke ran against Biden during the election primaries but eventually dropped from the race in November. The Texas Democrat said that if Biden wins Texas, it “will allow America to start the necessary next chapter for our country.” A Democratic win in Texas is a long shot and hasn’t been done since Jimmy Carter won the state in 1976, but polls are indicating that it could be a close race.

    You may have been impressed by a city you visited once on vacation or that you discovered while scrolling through a list of affordable places to live. But if you’re considering a move and looking for a new city to call home, a lot of factors influence your decision. Here are a half dozen questions to answer before landing on your next place to live, and where to gather the information so you can find a city that’s just right for you. 1. “What’s the cost of living?” Knowing just how far your hard-earned dollar will go in a new city is a priority when you’re looking to relocate.  As more companies — particularly those in tech, finance and insurance — allow their employees to continue working remotely on a full-time basis after COVID-19, more people have the option to move out of big, expensive metro areas and find more affordable places to live.

    Give Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a real speaking slot at the Democratic National Convention. Joe Biden’s favorable ratings in Civiqs polling among Democrats, broken out by age:    Biden favorables, Democrats Margin 18-34 61-26 +35 35-49 81-11 +70 50-64 89-6 +83 65+ 92-5 +87 The numbers are clear: While the presumptive Democratic nominee has sky-high approval ratings among middle- and older Democrats, his youth ratings are middling at best, half as positive as the next least favorable group.  Biden might be coasting to election, but why leave this natural constituency unattended? Why not work to maximize youth appeal and turnout, making Trump’s job harder, sure, but also every Republican’s job harder? If we win long-shot Senate races in places like Kansas, South Carolina, and Texas, it’ll be because we squeezed every last possible vote out of those electorates. Every youth vote we miss...
    At first, LaMay Axton thought her 2-year-old granddaughter’s cough was simply a cold. Cambria Tate had been fighting a virus for almost three weeks, with all the typical symptoms: fever, exhaustion and chest congestion. But then something truly alarming started happening to the normally rambunctious toddler. Her limbs stopped functioning. “As she turned the corner to head into the kitchen, her little legs fell from under her,” Axton said. “It was like watching a marionette doll.” Looking back on those first warning signs that sent Cambria to the emergency room near their home in Inland Empire, California, Axton now realizes the cough was a sign of what was to come: Her diaphragm was paralyzing. At the hospital, Cambria was diagnosed with acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), a rare neurological disorder that flares up mostly in young children every two years. Now 6 years old, she is a quadriplegic. AFM, which...
    Bundesliga He is so young that the law prevents him from debuting … but he already has a number to premiere: 18 Youssoufa Moukoko celebrates a goal with Dortmund. Youssoufa Moukoko (Yaound, Camern; 20-11-2004) is so young that, until January, I wasn’t even old enough to train with the first team of Borussia Dortmund. He was so young that the insurance didn’t take over. His earliness remains an ‘obstacle‘. The German League (DFL) established that a player, to debut as a professional, must be at least 16 years and six months old. However, the emergence of Moukoko has forced them to back down and they have lowered the minimum age to 16. The record of Nuri Sahin (16 years, 11 months and 1 day) is in danger. The Bundesliga boasts its new pearl: 39 goals for Dortmund U17 … at 13 years old! It is what some...
    By Caroline Pailliez QUIBERON, France (Reuters) - The Hacienda bar in this French seaside resort was heaving with Saturday night revellers: a crowd of people, beer glasses and smartphones in hand, moving to the sounds of pop and hip-hop music as red and blue strobe lights flashed. The scenes in the bar in northwest France in mid-July were captured in mobile phone footage. Reuters could not independently verify the video, but health officials said the dancing that evening breached hygiene rules and one person present described it as too full. One of the people there was a 19-year-old student working a summer job on the bakery counter in a supermarket. He had a headache and left early. Three days later, on July 21, the student was diagnosed with COVID-19. Over the following days, dozens of his friends, many of them regulars at the Hacienda, tested positive. Public health officials said...

    The first ever photo of two exoplanets orbiting a young Sun-like star 309-light years from the Earth has been captured by astronomers using a ground-based telescope.  The European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope in Chile was used to capture the image of the two giant exoplanets orbiting a very young star.  Astronomers say this image of two exoplanets orbiting a star is a snapshot of an environment similar to our Solar System  - but at an earlier stage in its evolution.  The two gas giants are much larger and much further away from their host star than Jupiter or Saturn are in the Solar System, according to researchers. The star is incredibly young at just 17 million years old, emerging just 50 million years after the death of the dinosaurs on Earth - our Sun is 4.6 billion years old. By studying direct images of such a young planetary system...
    Hackers involved in the high-profile hijacking of Twitter accounts earlier this week were a group of young pals with no links to state or organized crime, according to a new report. The attack, which Twitter and the FBI are investigating, started with a playful message between hackers on the platform Discord, a chat service popular with gamers, according to the New York Times. Cybersecurity experts were stunned by the startling revelation that Wednesday's breach, unprecedented in scale for the social media site, seemingly amounted to youthful hijinks.  'An incident such as this could have extraordinary serious consequences - manipulation of the markets, disinformation relating to an election, etc,' Brett Callow, a threat analyst at cybersecurity firm Emsisoft, told DailyMail.com.  'However, in this case, reporting suggests that the hack was carried out by a group of young people who may have done nothing worse than execute a bitcoin scam,' he said....

    Bear populations have been growing all across North America, bringing them in closer and more regular contact with humans each year.  That trend is putting bears at far greater risk than humans, according to a new study from the University of Alberta, led by Clayton Lamb. Lamb and his colleagues tracked 2,669 grizzly bears across British Columbia between 1979 and 2019 and found that the mortality rate for bears who lived near humans was 7.5 times higher than it was for those that lived in the wild. A new study found that bears that lived close to towns and cities had mortality rates that were 7.5 times higher than those that lived further into the wild According to the team, only one in 30 grizzly bears that lived in regions with frequent human contact would live to be 14-years-old, roughly middle aged for bears. In wild areas with less...

    The dramatic arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell last week would have been a proud moment for Bradley Edwards, the US lawyer who has devoted his life to securing justice for young women abused by Jeffrey Epstein. In his gripping book, Relentless Pursuit, stories from which we summarised earlier this year, Edwards revealed the appalling scale of Epstein’s crimes. Now, as Maxwell faces up to 35 years in jail and contemplates helping the FBI, we reveal the book’s shocking claims about Maxwell’s involvement in Epstein’s years of abuse…  With her high society connections, Ghislaine Maxwell had everything financier Jeffrey Epstein needed at the height of their relationship. And in material terms, he had everything she could possibly want, and more. This strange, intense pair were inseparable for almost two decades, sleeping in the same bed and travelling together on private planes all over the world. Maxwell was the one woman who, by...
    Pew Research published a national poll this week that showed Biden with a ten point lead over Trump, much as we’ve seen from other polls. But when they broke the responses down by age, the most startling result was that with 18-29 year-olds, Biden’s lead is 40 points (68-28). That might not be surprising. But here is a comparison to previous Democratic candidates. Pew also found that for Biden supporters, 67 percent said that their choice is more about opposition to Trump. I’m sure that is probably true for the subset of voters under 30 years of age. In other words, young people really don’t like Donald Trump. We watched that play out when young people used social media to troll the Trump campaign into thinking there would be a massive crowd at his Tulsa rally. The small attendance was related to people’s concerns about the coronavirus, but the groundswell...
    On Sunday, the New York Young Republican Club rallied around the statue of Theodore Roosevelt to defend the 26th president of the United States outside of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. “You'll never be able to make a better future if you erase our past. And that's something that happens in tyrannical regimes,” Gavin Wax, president of the New York Young Republican Club told Fox News. “I’ve never heard of a free society that wants to erase the past.”TRUMP SAYS GOVERNMENT IS 'TRACKING DOWN THE TWO ANARCHISTS' WHO THREW PAINT ON WASHINGTON STATUE Wax says it's about more than just Roosevelt's statue, or any of the statues that have been taken down or defaced by riots and protesters.“They're trying to judge people, premodern people, by postmodern standards of morality and by that rate we'll have no future because we'll have to erase all of human history,” Wax said. “You have to look...

Fredericks, a 16-year-old ward of the state, was at a juvenile residential facility in Kalamazoo called Lakeside Academy, and he was being restrained for allegedly throwing a sandwich at a staff member. After about 10 minutes, he lost consciousness and went into cardiac arrest. Twelve minutes later, someone called 911. Fredericks was sent to a hospital and put on life support, where he died about 30 hours later, on May 1.  According to a lawsuit filed last week, Fredericks’ death was just one instance in a long-standing pattern of negligence and...
    Hansel Hernández Galiano was killed by a police shot on June 24. But since last week, the island’s social networks have echoed an alleged act of police brutality on the island against a young African-American man who, until a couple of days ago, was little or nothing known, at least from the point of official view. It all started on July 25, when a woman posted on Facebook a photo of a dead Afro-Cuban youth who, she said, had been the victim of the national police a day earlier. “I feel deep pain for the murder of my nephew Hansel Ernesto Hernández Galiano committed yesterday morning in La Lima, Guanabacoa (in eastern Havana), by two patrolmen (police),” he wrote. “We, the family members, ask with mercy that this cruel act at the hands of our supposed national security does not go unpunished in any way.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore Orioles General Manager Mike Elias said he’s excited to embark on the upcoming baseball season set to begin July 23 after being delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Workouts at Camden Yards will begin this week. The last time the team met for practice was on March 12 in Sarasota when spring training was canceled. The team will play in an abbreviated 60-game season with all games happening in the Eastern time zone to limit travel amid the pandemic. The O’s are in rebuild mode, trying to develop young players for the future, but a short season can lead to unpredictable team performances. They could take advantage of a long season turning into a sprint and maybe win more games than expected. “It makes things a little less predictable,” Elias said Monday. “The fact that the pitchers may not be totally built up at the beginning...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is proposing to slash the city’s police department budget by $1 billion, even as crime is spiking in the Big Apple. In a Monday morning press conference at City Hall, the Democrat said the saved money would be diverted to “young people.” “My office presented to City Council a plan that would achieve the billion in savings for the NYPD and shift resources to young people, to communities in a way that would help address a lot of the underlying issues that we know are the cause of so many problems in our society,” he said. His plan is in line with the city council leaders, who have also called for a billion-dollar cut to the police department’s budget. With COVID-19 still sweeping the U.S. and more than 40 million Americans still out of work, De Blasio said New York City faces “the toughest budget...

    MACON, Ga.

    What do you see? Public domain A 2018 study conducted at Flinders University in Australia put forward a theory about a classic optical illusion called "My Wife and My Mother-in-Law." It's also known as the Boring Figure. The drawing shows both a young woman looking away and an old lady's profile. The study claimed that whichever woman you saw first depended on your age — people between 18 and 30 tended to see the young woman first, whereas people over 30 first spotted the older woman. It concluded that "own-age biases affect subconscious face perception." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. "My Wife and My Mother-in-Law" is one of the most well-known optical illusions in the world. It hinges on facial perception: You can either see a young woman turning away or the profile of an older woman staring solemnly towards the left side of the drawing. However,...
    There have been many WWE Superstars who have terrorized opponents over the years. Possibly, one of the most successful wrestlers among that list would be Brock Lesnar. He has been in the company for years. Let’s take a look at where it all began. The Beast Incarnate’s debut Brock Lesnar made his debut on March 18, 2002. He appeared in an episode of RAW and proceeded to attack Spike Dudley, Al Snow, and Maven. He came into the company as a “Paul Heyman Guy”.  In his debut, he attacked all three Superstars in the ring. Lesnar delivered a spine buster to Al Snow and picked up Maven for his signature F-5. Dudley tried to take advantage over the top rope but he was mauled by Brock Lesnar. Lesnar would then go on to deliver three consecutive powerbombs to Spike Dudley. Heyman was later revealed as Lesnar’s agent and the...

    This chart shows the growth trend of COVID-19 cases vs. COVID-19 deaths: Cases and deaths were following a roughly similar trend until mid June, when cases suddenly started to skyrocket while deaths continues to steadily decline. What’s going on? Part of the answer, of course, is that deaths are a lagging indicator, and you don’t really expect them to increase until cases have been high for two or three weeks. It’s possible that the death rate will turn upward next week. But there are a couple of other things that probably explain what’s going on. First, during the initial outbreak of COVID-19 a huge number of cases came in nursing homes, whose residents are by far the most vulnerable to the virus. We now know that nearly half of all COVID-19 deaths came in nursing homes, which eventually created a sort of herd immunity. Starting around June, there...

    The Capitol Hill Occupied Protest zone was almost entirely a peaceful affair until early Saturday morning. The largely peaceful and cooperative sense of community that had been building around Seattle’s Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP) zone was largely shattered over the weekend by a shooting incident early Saturday morning in which two young black men were shot, one of them fatally. The source of the violence was ascribed to an alcohol-fueled late-night dispute among a group of people who were not directly affiliated with the CHOP project. However, there was another shooting that night: two hours later, only a block away, an African-American man claimed that a group of white men who used racial epithets shot him five times. He told KIRO-7 TV that he believed the men were some of the “Proud Boys” who have been prowling the fringes of CHOP and assaulting people. DeJuan Young, 33, told reporters...
