    BOSTON (CBS) — Millions of patients who have had COVID-19 — many with only mild illness — still have symptoms months later. One local hospital has established a program dedicated to helping these patients heal. In March of 2020, Phil Baczewski developed fever, a cough, and trouble breathing. When the 47-year-old father of four went to the hospital, the doctor didn’t mince words.

He had COVID-19, was in pulmonary failure, and was given a 10% chance to live. He spent 28 days in the hospital, 16 of them in a coma. “I couldn’t walk,” he explained. “My body was really weak still from being in a coma. From when I woke up to the day I left, it was like it was a struggle to even just use my hands to feed myself.” Over a year later, Phil still suffers from nerve pain, weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath, anxiety, depression,...

    The racist cellmate of disgraced R&B singer R Kelly has created a comic book detailing the pair doing yoga in jail. Brendan Hunt, 37, served time with Kelly at the Metropolitan Detention Center as Hunt faced a 10 year prison sentence for threatening to kill Democratic Congress members following the January 6 riots.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles neighborhood just outside the nation’s busiest port complex has become a perpetual traffic jam, with trucks hauling cargo containers backed up day and night as workers try to break through an unprecedented backlog of ships waiting to unload. About 40% of all shipping containers entering the U.S. come through the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports. The logjam of ships has interrupted the global supply chain and last week prompted the Biden administration to allow the port complex to operate 24 hours a day to try to get goods unloaded and out to consumers. Since then, residents of the Wilmington neighborhood just north of the ports have complained that trucks are backed up in the streets at all hours. Meanwhile, cargo companies running out of space to store containers off-loaded from ships are stacking them outside overloaded warehouses and in parking lots. This week a container slid off a truck making a turn on a narrow street, pancaking a parked car. Nobody was hurt, but local officials say with so...
    This glamorous robot, designed to create works of art, may seem harmless enough – but she appears to have caused a diplomatic row. Ai-Da, a British-made humanoid who is named after the 19th century scientist and mathematician Ada Lovelace, has been detained by Egyptian security forces on suspicion of being part of a spying plot. She and her Oxford-based creator Aidan Meller were on their way to take part in an exhibition next to the pyramids in Giza this week when they were stopped by border guards after landing in Cairo. A brush with the law: Robot artist Ai-Da (pictured) has been held by the Egyptian security forces in Cairo on suspicion of being part of a spying plot According to Mr Meller, officials seized Ai-Da and demanded the removal of her eyes, which contain cameras. He claims she is being treated as a ‘security issue’, which may include fears that she is part of a broader espionage plot. Now Gareth Bayley, the British ambassador to Egypt, has been drawn into the row, with Mr Meller saying last night that he...
    BALTIMORE, Md. (WJZ) — Everyone who works for the city of Baltimore must now provide proof they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19, or else they’ll be required to undergo routine testing under a new city policy. The COVID-19 vaccine mandate took effect Monday and covers all 14,000 city employees. READ MORE: Maryland Lawmakers Introduce New Legislation To Better Protect Witnesses, Reduce IntimidationBut after raising concerns about the policy’s implications, unions representing the city’s firefighters and police officers are calling for the deadline to be pushed back until they get answers to their lingering questions. “We just want to know how they’re going to do this,” said Rich Langford, who serves as president of Baltimore Firefighters IAFF Local 734, a firefighters and paramedics union. The policy was announced in late August by Mayor Brandon Scott. It calls for all city employees, including part-time staff and contractors, to prove they’re vaccinated or be subject to weekly testing. Since the policy was announced, Langford said, the union has tried unsuccessfully to get details about the mandate. He cited problems that have arisen from “not...
    What happened next? The Siggs filed a police report and placed a new set of security cameras pointed right at the tombstones, WLS reported, adding that the couple hopes the added surveillance will discourage any future vandals. The couple also repainted their signs and put them back up on the lawn, the station said. Image source: WLS-TV video screenshot And while the Siggs told WLS they intended the display to be more fun than serious, they told the station they do hope it encourages people to get vaccinated. "If there [is] vandalism again, we thought about putting 'free speech' on one and setting it in there," Juanita Sigg noted the station.
    California Gov. Gavin Newsom signed a sweeping package of police reform laws on Thursday aimed at increasing accountability and removing "harmful techniques." In total, Newsom signed eight separate bills regarding law enforcement reform. The legislation creates harsher consequences for officer misconduct and increases transparency in law enforcement records. JENNER PLANNING 2022 RUN IF UNSUCCESSFUL IN NEWSOM RECALL “Today marks another step toward healing and justice for all,” Newsom said in a press release . “Too many lives have been lost due to racial profiling and excessive use of force. We cannot change what is past, but we can build accountability, root out racial injustice and fight systemic racism. We are all indebted to the families who have persevered through their grief to continue this fight and work toward a more just future.” California Attorney General Rob Bonta called the package of new laws "an inflection point in how we provide for public safety." "By building trust today, we are ensuring officer and community safety for tomorrow," Bonta said. "Trust generates safety and safety generates...
    A WOMAN has gone viral after she created a PowerPoint presentation to tell her parents that she was working as a stripper. Lexi, from Portland, wanted to find the perfect way to let her parents know that she’s a sex worker, and settled on a slide show. 3Lexi created a PowerPoint presentation to let her parents know that she's a stripperCredit: @mildwestsami/Tiktok 3Her sister captured her parents' reaction in a TikTok videoCredit: @mildwestsami/Tiktok Her sister Sami captured their reaction on camera, sharing the footage on her TikTok account where it has since received over 5.4 million views.

    Carol Germain lives on a quiet, tree-lined street in Pasadena a few houses down from the brother of Robert F. Kennedy’s murderer. For 30 years, she has watched TV crews pop by the middle-class neighborhood, where Munir Sirhan’s fenced-off home was featured on a Pasadena true-crime bus tour. At the brother’s request, she recently signed a letter supporting Sirhan Sirhan’s release. “He’s 77,” she said. “He probably just wants to come and sit in the backyard.” But Germain understands the whirlpool of emotions surrounding the decision last month by California parole commissioners to recommend the release of the man convicted in one of the most infamous political assassinations in American history. The recommendation has stirred intense debate in many corners — among the Kennedys, others who remember the killing, and even in the Pasadena neighborhood where the convicted killer hopes to settle with his brother if he is freed. At its core is the question of how much mercy should be shown to people who commit horrific crimes, including those that may have changed history. Kennedy was a leading...

    Thanks in part to an epic foreign policy blunder by the Biden administration, Afghan nationals have been forced to flee the brutal rule of the Taliban, spurring another humanitarian disaster primed to exacerbate an already record-breaking border crisis, not to mention jeopardizing our country’s national security. The unfolding turmoil from the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan has provoked elected officials and political commentators to urge the Biden administration to allow thousands of Afghan nationals to enter the United States unchecked. In response to the botched withdrawal, the Biden administration is contemplating bringing as many as 50,000 unvetted Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) applicants and refugees into the country. While the United States undoubtedly has an obligation to help our Afghan allies, it is to nobody’s benefit to resettle individuals who have not been properly vetted into the United States, especially given the history of fraud and abuse in both our SIV and refugee programs. According to a June 2020 report by the State Department’s Inspector General, many SIV applications were rife with fraud. The same report also revealed the State Department does not rely on official documentation and databases to...
    A SMUG bloke who set out to prove that he could do better than his girlfriend was left extremely red-faced when it backfired beautifully - realising that she was actually quite the catch. In what he claims to be a "joke", the man set up a Tinder profile for his girlfriend using photos of her, which swiftly proved popular with interested singletons. 2The man revealed the 'joke' it played in on girlfriend which backfired leaving him red-faced Within one hour, her profile had racked up over 1,300 likes, according the the man, who later explained what he'd done online. Realising he'd made a mistake after noticing how many blokes were interested in his girl, he began to grovel, even offering to "run her a bath, cook her dinner, fold the laundry and rub her feet." The post appeared to be written on his personal Facebook account, but it's since been shared on various Instagram pages, as well as Twitter. "Attention men," his post began before continuing: "If you're feelin' like you can do better than your...

    (CNN)President Joe Biden said Friday the Texas state law that bans abortion after as early as six weeks into pregnancy is "almost un-American," pointing specifically to a provision allowing individuals to take civil action against people who help a woman get an abortion.Biden told reporters at the White House he has asked the Justice Department to see if there are ways within existing law to limit the independent action of individuals enforcing a state law. "The most pernicious thing about the Texas law, it sort of creates a vigilante system," Biden said. The President added: "It just seems -- I know this sounds ridiculous -- it's almost un-American, what we're talking about." John Roberts has lost control of the Supreme CourtThe Texas law is one of the strictest abortion laws in the nation and it prohibits abortion providers from conducting abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which is around six weeks into the pregnancy and before some women know they are pregnant. It also allows private citizens to bring civil litigation with a threat of $10,000 or more in damages against providers...
    Former UFC middleweight champion 37-year-old Luke Rockhold is returning to the Octagon after undergoing multiple surgeries and even dodging the idea of ​​retirement. The native of California, USA, is scheduled to fight on November 6 against Sean Strickand at UFC 268. True to his style, the American fighter spoke about everything without mincing words and criticized the UFC and its president Dana White Warning “The UFC creates interim belts that are worth nothing. That’s the kind of thing we have to deal with. I don’t want to deal with this all the time. I will always say what I think and what I feel. Like it or not, fuck you », the fighter started. And followed: “Guys like Francis Ngannou are in the ‘refrigerator’ for asking for wages according to what they are worth.” “That’s the common narrative that Dana White and the UFC created: criticize the fighters and criticize the champions. It was made to make fans want to hate the wrestlers, and it’s a clown. You have to go there, respect yourself and get...

    No songs of freedom. Chinese authorities have announced a "blacklist" for karaoke songs that will go into effect at the start of October, according to state-run media. "On the list are songs containing content that endangers national unity, sovereignty or territorial integrity; violates China's religious policies and spreads cults and superstitions; and advocates obscenity, gambling, violence and drug-related crimes or instigating crimes," Xinhua announced earlier this week, citing the country’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

    Darío Pérez@ Ringsider2020 Last Sunday, we denounced what was perhaps the worst score of some boxing judges so far this year, and that this dishonorable qualifier was difficult to beat. Our readers can remember the chronicle of the PBC evening’s semi-background fight, a world title of the dozens sanctioned by the WBA without being the one that determines, even for them, the best boxer in the category. In this case, the interim world super lightweight, disputed by a Venezuelan like Gabriel Maestre, an excellent amateur who already in his professional debut disputed a zone title organized by said organism; it is already curious. Last Saturday, Maestre had as his rival Mykal fox, a fighter who completely disarmed Maestre, knocking him down in the second round and winning at least nine of the twelve rounds they disputed. However, the scores were insane, as the entire world press on boxing and angry fans on social media unanimously said. 114-113, 115-112 are cards that shouted for an investigation and suspension of the judges in charge, but 117-110 is, at least for...

    From the right: The Needless CDC Panic In the face of the Delta variant, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention should have reiterated that vaccines overwhelmingly prevent serious COVID illness and death, period — instead, the agency created a ­“fiasco” by offering “murky new guidance without backup evidence,” fumes The Wall Street Journal editorial board. “The CDC should be a source of fact and reason, not a hair-on-fire spreader of fear. The agency could start by explaining that COVID cases have been increasing across the US and that more vaccinated individuals are testing positive. But most of these ‘breakthrough’ cases are mild or asymptomatic.” As for the re-masking guidance, “the risk is that some people may conclude from this new CDC guidance that, since we still need masks, there’s no need to be vaccinated,” thus undermining the vaccination drive. “Time and again in this pandemic, the CDC has been a source of confusion or ineptitude. And Washington wonders why Americans have lost confidence in COVID experts.” Libertarian: Adult Irrationality Hurts Kids Again The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s...

The Shurat HaDin Law Center in Tel Aviv has applied to distribute Ben & Jerry’s frozen desserts in the West Bank under the name “Judea and Samaria’s Ben & Jerry’s” — arguing that the Vermont-based company forfeited its trademark rights when it said it would be freezing sales in “the Occupied Palestinian Territory.”  In a July 23 letter to the CEO of Ben & Jerry’s parent company, Unilever, the Law Center said it registered a trademark for Judea and Samaria’s Ben & Jerry’s with Israel’s Justice Ministry.  New flavors might include “Frozen Chosen People,” the legal group said. The Shurat HaDin Law Center “We...

The Poland international scored seven goals in 32 games last season despite his so-called intuition, which shows 23-goal Kane is doing something the Pole is not.

    Former New York City Police Department officer Dan Bongino said Wednesday that defunding the police will lead to the chaos depicted in the novel “Lord of the Flies.” “What do you want? “Lord of the Flies?” You want Piggy?

    Franz Josef Land, Russia (CNN)The Russian military plane touched down in heavy wind and light snow, then slid across the icy tarmac. That the large, four-engine Ilyushin Il-76 airlifter could land at all on the Franz Josef Land archipelago in the middle of the Arctic Ocean, is a testament to Moscow's growing military might in this remote part of the world. Russia recently expanded the runway at its Nagurskoye air base on the archipelago to 3,500 meters long, meaning it can land and refuel most of its military aircraft here, including jet fighters to patrol the polar skies. Asked whether this also meant Russia's heavy strategic bombers, like the TU-95 "Bear," were able to operate from here, Maj. Gen. Igor Churkin proudly confirmed they could. "Of course they can," he boasted, pointing to a briefing chart of the base. "Have a look. We can land all types of aircraft on this base."
