    When I first met Katie Seawell, she was draped head to toe with PPE. A full body suit, rubber gloves, shoe covers—the works. You’d think she was preparing to walk into a COVID unit for patients, but we were about as far away from a healthcare facility as you can get, in a building located within a drab-looking office park under a bridge in Kearny, New Jersey. From the outside, it didn’t seem like there could be anything worthwhile going on here. Inside, however, were rows and rows of fruits and vegetables on top of each other in what looked like skyscrapers of produce. I saw lettuce, radishes, mustard greens, and a whole host of other crops easily found in a local grocery store. It was what the future of food is supposed to look like—at least, one version of it called vertical farming. For Bowery Farms, the company that runs this project, this is a critical part of the fight to keep people fed during tumultuous changes caused by climate change and supply chain challenges.

I think the most important thing is going to play a football game.” The Jets traded for Flacco on Oct. 25 after Zach Wilson suffered a sprained PCL, sending a sixth-round draft pick to the Eagles. Flacco didn’t report to the facility till Oct. 29 and the Jets cited personal reasons. Flacco is starting against the Dolphins on Sunday, making him the Jets’ third starting quarterback this season. When Flacco spoke to reporters in person after the trade, he broke NFL COVID protocols by not wearing a mask...

    WHILE the highly classified Area 51 might be the United States' most famous military base it's far from the country's most secretive. The covert Air Force base, located in Lincoln County, Nevada, was opened during the Cold War in 1955 but its existence was only officially acknowledged by the CIA in August 2013. 14Area 51 is arguably the US' most famous top-secret military baseCredit: Getty Images - Getty 14The secrecy surrounding the base has fanned the flames of the aforementioned conspiracies about aliens and UFOsCredit: Getty - Contributor Despite this, Area 51 has long been notorious, largely on account of its frequent association with alien mythology and UFO conspiracy theories. What precisely goes on inside the base is kept extremely secret, but it's thought the US military uses the site to develop cutting-edge aircraft.

    Thirty million to 50 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine reportedly rest idle in a Maryland facility waiting to be shipped. The vaccines are stored in Emergent BioSolutions Inc's Baltimore plant as the drug manufacturer waits on the Food and Drug Administration to permit the doses' release, according to a report citing sources "familiar with the matter." An exact estimate as to the number of doses in the facility is unable to be determined since Emergent merely manufactures the raw substance required for the vaccine without placing it in vials, a source said. MENTAL ILLNESS LINKED WITH SEVERE COVID-19 CASES: CDC Emergent's manufacturing of the vaccine was suspended in April when the Johnson & Johnson vaccine was discovered to have been contaminated by AstraZeneca's COVID-19 shots, Reuters reported. The corruption affected about 15 million doses and held back the vaccine's deployment for weeks, the report said. The material in the Baltimore facility, which has sat dormant since before the April suspension, might be enough to fill 50 million vials, according...

    Skunk Works general manager Jeff Babione Lockheed Martin's notoriously-secretive Skunk Works boss won't comment on a video that shows an enormous, saucer-like object parked at a Lockheed testing facility.  A video posted on Twitter showed the sleek and aerodynamic object being pulled on the back of a flatbed trailer in the Mohave Desert. It was likely spotted in Lockhead's Helendale Radar Cross Section Facility, said Twitter user Ruben Hofs, who analyzed the video.

    (CNN)When it comes to keeping Covid-19 at bay, few countries seem willing to go as far as China.As countries around the world reopen borders and loosen coronavirus restrictions, Beijing is doubling down on its zero-Covid strategy. The latest example: a $260 million, 5,000-room quarantine facility for incoming travelers set to open in the southern metropolis of Guangzhou in the coming days.Comprised of rows of three-story buildings topped with gray roofs in traditional Chinese style, the massive complex spans an area the size of 46 football fields and took less than three months to be built from scratch on the outskirts of the city.It will replace designated hotels located throughout Guangzhou to quarantine Chinese and international travelers arriving from overseas -- a move aimed at reducing residents' exposure to imported cases.Travelers will be transferred on buses directly from the airport, and confined to their rooms for at least two weeks. Each room is fitted with a video chat camera and an artificial intelligence-powered thermometer, with three meals a day delivered by robots -- all designed to minimize direct contact with staff...

Sullivan Dental Partners has operated since 1970, but staff wanted to thank members of the community for their past patronage and to let them know that they are moving forward with new innovations. “The two big things we pride ourselves on is our legacy and our traditions.

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Maryland Zoo reopened the oldest section of the zoo Wednesday as a footpath for visitors to dive deeper into the history of the facility. The path is also a sort of scenic shortcut from the front gate to the most popular zoo habitats. The “Main Valley” is where the zoo began in the mid-1800s as an informal menagerie of random animals entrusted to the Park Superintendent by locals, the zoo said. But in 1876, the Maryland General Assembly agreed to formally create âa zoological collection within the limits of Druid Hill Park for the purpose of public exhibition for the instruction and recreation of the people.â READ MORE: 'Justice Has Been Served,' Hogan Says Of Capital Gazette Shooter's SentenceThe zoo closed the Main Valley in 2004, and the antiquated area became a service drive for employees.

There will be signage so visitors know what they’re looking at. âWith the...

    'Cult mom' Lori Vallow, is still unfit to stand trial for the murder of her two children and has been ordered to remain at a psychiatric facility for at least another 180 days.  During a virtual conference call on Wednesday, District Judge Steven Boyce could be heard addressing Vallow's husband and co-defendant Chad, who was on the call with his lawyer. Meanwhile, Lori, 48, was conspicuously absent from the Zoom call, as the judge addressed her competency. Daybell has been confined to a state hospital in the care of the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare since June 8 after the judge found her incompetent to stand trial following a psychological assessment performed by a clinical psychologist, according to Fox 13. 'The completed assessment determined that at this time the Defendant is not competent to proceed, and recommends restorative treatment,' the District Court of the Seventh Judicial District of Idaho wrote of the assessment, which had been ordered March 8. Further details of Vallow's alleged mental illness have not been shared.   Lori Daybell, 48 (pictured), is still not fit to...
    Demonstrators protest outside the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) headquarters to demand the release of immigrants families in detention centers at risk during the coronavirus pandemic, in Washington, D.C., on July 17, 2020. Immigrants are no longer being detained at the notorious Georgia facility currently the focus of a federal investigation for medical abuses against detained women. While Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas said in May that it would be terminating the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) contract for the private Irwin County Detention Center (ICDC), last month, advocates revealed that immigrants continued to be imprisoned there. But now, in a major victory for advocates who for years have pushed for Irwin’s permanent closure, there are no more immigrants remaining at the LaSalle Corrections operated facility. Roughly 40 were moved from the detention site last week, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. “All ICE detainees have been removed from the facility,” Irwin Warden David Paulk said in the report. “Yesterday morning, we grouped them up for removal.” Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative lead attorney Maura Finn said the “actions reflect a promise to ensure an immigrant held in detention will not...
    ROCK HILL, S.C. (AP) — The new home of the Carolina Panthers’ state-of-the-art team headquarters and practice facility is beginning to take shape. Just over the South Carolina state line in Rock Hill, steel support beams are emerging from the ground on a rocky, dusty 240-acre plot of land. Dug-up boulders have been cast into a huge pile, construction vehicles scurry about and large cranes hoist metal beams into place on a site that the workers call “The Rock” because the architectural design of the building was meant to depict the image of a rock jutting out of the ground. The prized idea of Panthers billionaire owner David Tepper, the entire project (including added highway infrastructure) is approaching $800 million in public and private money to build and is expected to rival that of the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings, arguably the best team headquarters in the NFL, when it is completed in 2023. “The Rock” will host all of the team’s offices and training/locker room facilities, along with three outdoor grass practice fields, one indoor artificial field and another...
    Doha, Qatar — Afghanistan's Taliban rulers have been quashing scattered protests with gunfire, whips and sticks, while the group's leaders insist they will not harbor terrorists in the country again. At Kabul airport, people were seen handing young children over the perimeter wall to U.S. troops this week, desperate for their kids to avoid life under the Islamic extremists who've retaken control after 20 years, hot on the heels of the American withdrawal. Taliban vows women's rights under Sharia law. What's that mean?

    New video taken by border patrol agents show a border holding facility with massive overcrowding where migrants lay packed together – some not wearing masks. 'They are way past capacity – so aliens sit outside because where do you take them?' a source told Townhall Media in sharing the jarring images. 'Logistically it's a nightmare,' they continued, 'people want to go to the bathroom, need to eat, women need to breastfeed, and the list goes on.' 'This has surpassed the point of sustainability – this is lunacy,' the border agent added. The images from the Rio Grande Valley Sector shows the overcrowding that has led to migrants apprehended in that area being held instead under the Anzalduas International Bridge in Mission, Texas.
