    Dozens of protesters came out on Monday to walk down Calle Ocho to express their solidarity with the protests of the Cuban people. The meeting point was once again the heart of the Cuban exile, Little Havana, but this time the intersection of Calle 8 and Avenida 27 from the northwest. These protesters were unable to travel to Washington but say that from here they join the demands for Cuba that are heard in the country’s capital. Others were in Washington and back in Miami, they returned to the streets.

    LONDON (AP) — After 16 months of solo jogging, Saturday’s return of the weekly 5-kilometer mass runs in England’s parks was met with widespread jubilation. Days after all remaining lockdown restrictions were lifted in England, the organized 5K runs were allowed to resume for the first time since the pandemic struck in March 2020. The so-called parkruns — which are open to everyone, regardless of age, gender or ability — have become increasingly popular over the past few years and arguably have done more to improve the nation’s mental and physical health than anything in decades. The runs have also showcased a solidarity within a society that has fissured on many other levels. And the running isn’t even compulsory. Walking will do. And there’s even a few parents with strollers and babies. “It has been a lonely time for a lot of people with lots of lonely training miles, solo runs, along with virtual and cancelled races,” said 24-year-old PhD student Cameron Dockerill, who took just 16 minutes to become the first person to complete the run in Southwark...

READ MORE: Ford Recalls 850,000 Vehicles Including Explorers, F-350s, Lincoln Aviators Soliman has had little to no contact with his aunts and uncles who are currently in Cuba, and the images and videos of what’s happening there are frightening. “There’s always going to be anxiety there’s always going to be that thought in the back of your head that they could get killed at any moment and that’s really hard to deal with,” said Soliman. Soliman spoke to CBS4 News outside Versailles on Calle Ocho in Little Havana. Food and medicine shortages amid the COVID-19 pandemic are amplifying concerns as Cuba’s communist regime has also blocked internet access. “They shut off internet, imagine that,” said Soliman. “People have tried to do streams and stuff online but everything gets taken down.” Gov.

    GB News, a right-leaning British news channel that launched with a promise to “champion robust, balanced debate and a range of perspectives,” found itself the target of online mockery and criticism for their response to one of their own hosts taking a knee live on the air in solidarity with the UK soccer team. Similar to NFL players kneeling to show solidarity with criminal justice reform and racial justice movements, British soccer players have been a part of this debate in their own country. Racial issues cast a shadow over England’s appearance at the Euro 2020 final, with several Black players on the English team being the target of racist attacks after they missed penalty kicks and Italy won the game. The current controversy concerns Guto Harri, a GB News host who was previously a journalist with the BBC after a stint as a spokesman for then-London Mayor Boris Johnson (the current Prime Minister). “But having seen over the last few days, just how close to the surface, just how deep-rooted, just how hideously ugly racism among some English football fans...
    Two COVID-19 treatments do not seem to have any effect in helping patients recover from the disease more quickly, a new study suggests. Researchers looked at two therapies: remdesivir - which is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat Covid and hydroxychloroquine, which is not approved. They found that neither drug helped decrease the severity of COVID-19 in hospitalized patients nor lowered inflammation no matter what the patient's age was or how long they had had symptoms for.  The team, from Oslo University Hospital, in Norway, says the findings have the group 'questioning the antiviral potential' of the treatments. A new study found neither remdesivir and hydroxychloroquine reduced the degree respiratory failure or reduced inflammatory makers in COVID-19 patients (file image) Known as NOR-Solidarity, the study is affiliated with the World Health Organization's (WHO) Solidarity trial. The trial sees researchers from several different countries compare the effects of different drugs on COVID-19.  Included in the trial are remdesivir, originally conceived as a drug to fight Ebola, and an anti-malaria drug called hydroxychloroquine.  For the Norwegian...

    Former U.N.

    During the May 26, 2021, Senate Judiciary Confirmation hearings, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and ATF nominee David Chipman were in solidarity in push for “electronic traces” of firearms. Leahy jumped into the topic by complaining about laws that limit the tracing and tracking of firearms, saying, “Congress, at the behest of some in the gun lobby, prohibited the ATF from electronically searching gun sales records [even though] we have tens of millions of these records stored in metal containers in parking lots.” He added, “Anything else we want to trace we’d do it electronically…but the ATF is forced, by the laws we passed, foolish laws, to have this labor intensive process which, of course, hinders law enforcement all over the country. I think we have to act swiftly to bring the ATF into the 21st century.” Leahy then referenced his gun control, the Crime Gun Tracing Modernization Act, which he re-introduced on May 25, 2021. Chipman responded by thanking Leahy “for being so passionate about something that is just so critical to, not the only function of state and local...

    Recently, several leaders I greatly admire led “Fight the Hate” rallies, spurred by the growing hate crimes against our Asian-American neighbors. We’ve witnessed, with horror, similar attacks against Blacks and Latinos, and we must continue to stand in solidarity to rally against racism. Yet we must do more than “Fight the Hate.” We must also take positive, proactive steps to “Spread the Love.” In San Jose alone, where our population is nearly 40% Latino, 35% Asian and nearly 5% Black, we can show with our words, our wallets and our deeds our appreciation and admiration for the rich cultural and ethnic diversity that is the bedrock of our society. We can take proactive action professionally and personally, through our time, treasure and talent. Here are three immediate ways that we can act: • San Jose Aspires: Through the leadership of San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, SJ Aspires equips and empowers high school students in some of our most diverse yet underserved communities with some of the funds needed to successfully pursue a college degree. The mayor has personally raised more...

    BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union’ foreign policy chief expressed “solidarity” with the U.S. Thursday in the wake of the so-called SolarWinds hack, a breach of federal government agencies and American corporations that’s blamed on Russian hackers. At least nine federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security, were hacked, along with dozens of private-sector companies. The months-long cyberespionage operation was carried out largely through a hack of widely used software from Texas-based SolarWinds Inc. EU top diplomat Josep Borrell said in a statement that the “compromise affected governments and businesses worldwide, including in EU Member States.” “We share the concerns of our partners about the increasing number of malicious cyber activities,” Borrell said. He expressed particular alarm at the recent increase in activities affecting information and communication technology products and services, “which might have systemic effects and cause significant harm to our society, security and economy.” The Biden administration is expected to soon announce a response to the SolarWinds hack, and has also been occupied by an intrusion affecting Microsoft Exchange email software. The company has said...
