    Fish-shaped 'microrobots' could be used to deliver chemotherapy drugs directly into tumours, sparing cancer patients from some of the worst side effects of the treatment.  The microscopic robots, which are one-hundredth of a millimetre in size, have been made my Chinese scientists using a special 3D printing technique, from a gel that changes shape when exposed to different pH levels. They then bathed the 'fish' in an iron oxide solution, which makes them magnetic, before loading its 'mouth' with chemo medication.  It could be injected into a blood vessel then guided my magnets to the location of a tumour. Cancer cells cause the pH levels in the fluids surrounding them to become more acidic and, reacting to this, the robot changes shape and opens it's 'mouth' discharging chemotherapy drugs contained inside.

    The feud between Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) escalated after a phone call between the two went sideways on Monday. Last week, Boebert apologized “to anyone in the Muslim community I offended” after a video of her surfaced referring to Omar as “jihad squad.” She also relayed an anecdote in which she shared an elevator with the congresswoman and allayed the alleged fears of a police officer about Omar, who is Muslim. “Well she doesn’t have a backpack, we should be fine,” Boebert told the officer in her recounting of the story, which Omar says never happened. Boebert did not directly apologize to Omar, but noted she reached out to her office to speak with her directly, which according to both lawmakers, happened on Monday. Omar said she ended the “unproductive” call. “Instead of apologizing for her Islamophobic comments and fabricated lies, Rep. Boebert refused to publicly acknowledge her hurtful and dangerous comments,” said Omar. “She instead doubled down on her rhetoric. I decided to end the unproductive call.” For her part, Boebert made a statement on Instagram...
    Most Americans say inflation is negatively affecting them and blame President Biden, a Yahoo News/YouGov poll released this week found. Over-three quarters of Americans, 77 percent, said inflation is affecting their lives, and a majority across all party lines say the same. That includes 90 percent of Republicans, 79 percent of independents, and 69 percent of Democrats: In addition to the nearly 8 in 10 Americans who now say inflation is affecting them personally (37 percent “a great deal”; 40 percent “some”), more than 6 in 10 (61 percent) say the same about “shortages of goods and services” (17 percent “a great deal”; 44 percent “some”). What is more, 57 percent, overall, directly blame President Biden. Respondents also identified inflation as the “most important issue facing America,” even more so than the Chinese coronavirus.  Per Yahoo! News: These results explain in part why the president’s overall approval rating has steadily declined to 43 percent in recent months while his disapproval rating has risen to 52 percent — and why, on the economy, Biden’s approval rating is even lower (40 percent). Since...
    Win McNamee/Getty Images House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R- CA) said Monday he spoke with Congressman Paul Gosar (R- AZ) about the crazy anime video he posted last week. Last week Gosar posted a bonkers video his office made inserting himself into Attack on Titan killing a character depicted as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D- NY). Gosar was widely condemned by many colleagues, and while he has since taken the tweet down, he has repeatedly defended it. Last week Democrats introduced a resolution to officially censure him over the matter. There was some criticism of House Republican leadership, particularly McCarthy, for not saying anything about this. Now McCarthy is saying that he directly spoke to Gosar about it. According to Politico, the House GOP leader said Monday, “He took the video down and made a statement that he doesn’t support violence to anybody. I called him when I heard about the video. And he made a statement.” Politico reported that, according to one Republican course, McCarthy “directly lobb[ied]” Gosar on the call to issue a statement. Gosar has come under serious...
    Joe Raedle/Getty Images The American Civil Liberties Union said Sunday it supported Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe in his battle with the Justice Department over “press freedom.” “Project Veritas has engaged in disgraceful deceptions, and reasonable observers might not consider their activities to be journalism at all,” spokesman Brian Hauss said in a statement, taking the opportunity to shred his organization’s ideological foe. “Nevertheless, the precedent set in this case could have serious consequences for press freedom.” The FBI raided O’Keefe’s home over allegations about a diary stolen in 2020 from President Joe Biden’s youngest daughter, Ashley Biden. O’Keefe suggested in an interview last week that a source offered the diary to his group, but that he did not accept it or publish any excerpts. A federal court subsequently ordered the feds to cease efforts to extract data from O’Keefe’s electronic devices, which the FBI seized during the raid. “Unless the government had good reason to believe that Project Veritas employees were directly involved in the criminal theft of the diary, it should not have subjected them to invasive searches and seizures,” Hauss...
    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — As Thanksgiving approaches a local man wants people to think about farmers in western Pennsylvania. READ MORE: Pittsburgh Police Comfort Dog, Zane, Visits Senior CenterSimon Huntley, who grew up on a farm in Greene County, has developed technology that allows customers to get fresh produce from farms delivered right to someone’s home. It’s an online service called, “Harvie” — short for harvest. READ MORE: West Virginia Opens First Medical Cannabis DispensaryIt involves 75 to 100 local producers that supply fresh grocery products door-to-door. Appearing on the Sunday Business Page with Jon Delano, Huntley says his service cuts out the middle man by eliminating supply chain issues and helping farmers succeed. “One thing that we see is that the UCA puts out … what they call the farmer share of dollar, so how much of each dollar you spend in the grocery store [that] goes back to farms. And in the national supply chain, it’s 14 cents. And at Harvie, it’s 55 cents, so like four times that, so we’re really proud we’re supporting...

    Selim Korkutata | Anadolu Agency | Getty ImagesSelim Korkutata | Anadolu Agency | Getty Images The Securities and Exchange Commission has rejected the VanEck Bitcoin ETF. The filing was done by the CBOE BZX Exchange, which wanted the SEC to make a rule change allowing it to list the VanEck bitcoin fund. The SEC said the CBOE had not done enough to demonstrate it could prevent fraudulent trading to protect investors. That rationale is in line with previous rejections by the SEC of proposed ETFs that would track bitcoin directly. The regulator had previously cited concerns around market manipulation that it wanted addressed before it could ever approve a spot bitcoin ETF. This is breaking news.

    ‘Never Have I Ever’ Stars Seeking Big Pay Raises for Season 3 (Exclusive) Here’s How Much You’d Save If You Didn’t Buy Christmas Presents Longtime NBA legend and outspoken Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar joined in on the chorus of sports figures slamming Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Monday morning. Abdul-Jabbar, in a Substack entry titled “Aaron Rodgers Didn’t Just Lie,” ripped Rodgers after he tested positive for COVID-19 and landed in the NFL’s health and safety protocols while unvaccinated — something he had misled the public about for months. "Rodgers’ ignorance regarding the science of immunology brings back to life the old stereotype of the big dumb jock," Abdul-Jabbar wrote. "His utter lack of even the most basic knowledge and logic is shocking." Rodgers, Abdul-Jabbar said, “directly and deliberately” lied when he said he was immunized against the coronavirus — and that he hurt the image of professional athletes in general by his actions. “What’s especially bothersome is that Aaron Rodgers didn’t just lie and threaten the health of those around him, he also damaged professional...
    President Joe Biden sent the head of the CIA to Moscow this week to warn the Kremlin that the US is keeping tabs on their buildup of troops near the Ukranian border. CIA Director Bill Burns made a rare trip to Russia to hold talks with their national security officials, who are directly involved in the troop buildup.  An energy crisis in Ukraine has been the cause of the increased fervor between Kiev and Moscow, as Ukraine believes Russia is purposefully causing the problems.   The United States is growing more and more concerned by the activity, multiple sources said, as the Biden administration tries to soothe tensions between Russia and Ukraine.  Burns also spoke to Ukranian President Volodymyr Zelensky by phone, a senior State Department official told CNN. A similar buildup in the spring did not lead to a return of the Russian invasions of Ukraine.   CIA Director Bill Burns made a rare trip to Russia to hold talks with their national security officials, who are directly involved in the troop buildup
    The Department of Energy announced a new "earthshot" initiative Friday aimed at scaling up the technology to remove gigatons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere in support of President Joe Biden's goal of cutting emissions 50% by 2030. The initiative, dubbed the "Carbon Negative Shot,” is targeting breakthroughs to enable the removal and storage of carbon dioxide for less than $100 per ton, much cheaper than technology allows now. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm detailed the initiative at the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow on Friday, saying that beyond proven clean energy technologies that can currently be deployed affordably and at scale, other technological advancements must be made. METHANE FEE TO SURVIVE IN HOUSE DEMOCRATS' SPENDING PLAN "We know that we do have to make some technological breakthroughs to get fully decarbonized," Granholm said. "We know that we still have to decarbonize in other ways, but this is, as we say, 'It's not a silver bullet. It's silver buckshot.' We have to do all of the above," she added.

    DENVER (CBS4) – The popular real estate listing website Zillow announced it will stop buying homes and flipping them for resale. The company owns several thousand properties across the country and dozens in the Denver area. (credit: CBS) For the last two years, Zillow has bought homes directly from sellers. “What they do is they kind of sidestep the real estate broker in the transaction and they make a deal directly with the seller. Sometimes they rehab them, sometimes they don’t, but by and large, they are a wholesale home purchaser,” said Matt LePrino of the Colorado Association of Realtors. The country’s current shortage on labor and materials hit Zillow hard. The company has struggled to renovate and resell the homes it purchased fast enough, creating a huge backlog. Zillow stopped contacting sellers with offers last month. This week, Zillow says the unpredictability in forecasting home prices is why they’re creasing their home flipping operations. The company reports a third-quarter loss of over $328 million related to its home buying unit. (credit: CBS) “When you’re not able to buy low...

READ MORE: Southwest Airlines Offers Explanations For Flight Cancellations, But Industry Expert Not Buying ThemHalloween travelers got more tricks than treats when American Airlines canceled 1,000 flights on Sunday, after scrapping nearly 900 over the previous two days. The news left many travelers wary about upcoming trips. “You just never know what you’re going to expect. So you just try to show up as early as possible,” said J.T. Barker of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. “I hope they don’t cancel my flight,” added Sammi Alboa of Katy, Texas. Much like other recent mass cancellations, the latest was caused, in part, by staffing shortages. Travel experts say airlines have been too aggressive about scheduling flights. CBS News travel editor Peter Greenberg called it a perfect storm. “When travel came back with a vengeance, the airlines doubled...
    Fox News’ Martha MacCallum repeatedly confronted an attorney for the Rust assistant director who is under serious scrutiny in the Halyna Hutchins shooting investigation. David Halls, assistant director for Rust, said in a statement to the New York Post, “It’s my hope that this tragedy prompts the industry to reevaluate its values and practices to ensure no one is harmed through the creative process again.” Halls reportedly was the one on set who handed the gun to Alec Baldwin before the tragic shooting of Hutchins. MacCallum spoke with Halls’ attorney Lisa Torraco Monday and went through the timeline of what happened on set and the chain of custody of the prop gun. Torraco said they have heard from witnesses that “they remember that the armorer or the armorer’s assistant brought in the firearm, brought it onto the set, so this idea that my client grabbed the gun off of a prop cart and handed it to Mr. Baldwin absolutely did not happen.” At one point MacCallum directly asked, “Did Dave Halls hand the gun to Alec Baldwin? That’s a very...

    Novelist Toni Morrison is presented with a Presidential Medal of Freedom by U.S. President Barack Obama during an East Room event May 29, 2012 at the White House. It’s not uncommon for the literary greats of earlier generations to speak wisdom that seems unbound by time, but the late Pulitzer Prize-winning author Toni Morrison seemed to just do so effortlessly. Such was the case when she had to educate journalist Jana Wendt in a 1998 interview and in turn, ended up speaking the kind of wisdom a GOP candidate or dozen could benefit from. Human rights lawyer Qasim Rashid suggested Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin as a Republican who could stand to learn from Morrison’s work. Youngkin is running a tight race against Democrat Terry McAuliffe. In predictable opposition to the rebranded version of critical race theory that Republicans are selectively up in arms about, Youngkin tweeted a campaign video on Monday that featured the outrage of Laura Murphy, a white mom who years earlier tried to get Morrison's classic novel, Beloved, banned from her son's Advanced Placement English curriculum. xWhat's it like to have Terry McAuliffe block you from...

    HOLLYWOOD is saddened by the fatal shooting of cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins on the set of Alec Baldwin's "Rust." An investigation into the incident is ongoing. 1Actor Brandon Lee died on the set of The CrowCredit: Rex What has happened on movie sets in the past? Throughout the history of filmmaking, there have been a few tragedies on set. According to Sante Fe County Sheriff's deputies in New Mexico, Hutchins was killed and, director Joel Souza was injured when Baldwin discharged a prop gun on set.  Unfortunately, this isn't the first movie set accident. In 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of a martial-arts legend, Bruce Lee, was hit by a .44-caliber slug while filming The Crow in North Carolina. Hutchin's fatality has sparked the attention of many across Hollywood, even Lee's family. "No one should ever be killed by a gun on a film set. Period," Shannon Lee, the sister of Brandon Lee, posted on Twitter. How many actors have died on set? Before Lee's death in 1993, actor Jon Erik Hexum was killed on the set of the TV series...
    Michigan's Republican-controlled House and Senate passed a bill to create what they call Student Opportunity Scholarships, drawing fierce resistance from Democrats who claim the bill is another attempt at a voucher system. "In a voucher system… money is given to the Department of Treasury, then the Department of Treasury pays the schools through the vouchers," Michigan state Rep. Phil Green, a Republican lawmaker who introduced the legislation, told Fox News. "This is different… no money is given to the treasury, the money goes directly to a student granting organization, and from there, the scholarships are for approved uses inside of education." The bill, which Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has vowed to veto, creates tax credits and deductions for businesses and individuals who donate to the scholarship fund, which would be used to give grants to students to use the money for approved educational expenses.

    A helmet that zaps your brain with infrared light could help cure dementia, a study has found. Researchers from Durham University have developed a device which shines light directly into the brain through the skull. A trial found that wearing the helmet twice a day for six minutes at a time boosted memory, motor function and brain processing skills in healthy adults. The scientists said that if the results were replicated in people with dementia it could be a 'game-changer' in the fight against the incurable disease, which affects 850,000 Britons. The £7,250 helmet works through a process called 'photo biomodulation' where pulses of infrared light are directed deep into the brain. The study saw 14 healthy Britons wear the helmet (pictured) for six minutes twice a day for one month, with infrared light was beamed into their brains at a wavelength of 1068 nanometres Lead researcher Dr Paul Chazot (left), who has spent 20 years of studying particular infrared wavelengths for dementia treatment, pictured with GP Dr Gordon Dougal, who devised the helmet and Tracy Sloan who used it to...

    White House chief of staff Ron Klain is spreading the lie that inflation and the supply chain snarl are “high class problems,” which means we’re lucky to have them. On Wednesday, some Harvard idiot (excuse me for repeating myself) named Jason Furman tweeted, “Most of the economic problems we’re facing (inflation, supply chains, etc.) are high class problems. We wouldn’t have had them if the unemployment rate was still 10 percent.” He added that “We would instead have had a much worse problem.” Klain heartily agreed. This ???????? https://t.co/ymh53nEHAg — Ronald Klain (@WHCOS) October 14, 2021 This is just one more example of a breathtaking lack of empathy from the His Fraudulency Joe Biden’s White House. First off, it is not an either/or proposition. We don’t have to make this choice. Since Reaganomics kicked in nearly 40 years ago, America has enjoyed decades of low unemployment, low inflation, and healthy supply chains. Secondly, what is “high class” about an issue like record inflation? The answer is that there’s nothing high class about it. Few things hurt the poor more than...

    Washington, DC (CNN)The brightly-colored robotic boats made by Saildrone seem to have a death wish. Saildrone makes autonomous ocean vessels to study the environment. This summer, the Silicon Valley startup sent five of its vessels directly into the path of hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean. While airplanes can fly through hurricanes, the screaming winds kick up such huge waves that attempting to sail boats right into them is something best to be avoided.Saildrone's vessels are uncrewed, and built to survive hurricane winds and huge waves. Scientists are excited that the vessels could improve our understanding of how storms intensify. "If you're in the center of a hurricane at those type of wind speeds, the ocean is just this big, frothy mess right there where the water begins and the air ends," National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration director of engineering Chris Meinig told CNN Business.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami is the Magic City, but could it soon be the crypto city? “Where is the crypto capital of the United States? And that’s definitely in Miami now,” said Jeff Sekinger. Sekinger is the president of Orca Capital, a Miami-based cryptocurrency fund. Sekinger got involved in crypto just a few years ago and it catapulted him into starting his own business. He’s also CEO of ZeroPercent.com, which is a financial education company. “The biggest thing that I think is pulling people in is the overnight success,” said Sekinger.

    WASHINGTON -- While the concept of the debt ceiling might seem "in the weeds," it actually poses a very real threat to millions of Americans in a precarious economic period.If lawmakers on Capitol Hill remain deadlocked on raising the debt ceiling, the government could go into default -- essentially, unable to pay bills. That would directly impact the wallets of millions of Americans, including those who invest in the stock market and those who benefit from government programs such as Social Security and Medicaid."It would be disastrous for the American economy, for global financial markets, and for millions of families and workers whose financial security would be jeopardized by delayed payments," Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned lawmakers in a hearing on Sept. 28.Raising the debt ceiling, she said, is "necessary to avert a catastrophic event for our economy."But if you've ever wondered what exactly the debt ceiling is, you're not alone.

    U.S. Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., took aim at Education Secretary Miguel Cardona for controversial comments Cardona made about parents voicing their frustrations at school board meetings. "I was a little disturbed, and I want to see if you really meant the comment. And it was in relation to … ‘Why are they doing this?' And I'm going to quote this your response for that engagement was, ‘I think it's a proxy for being mad that their guy didn't win.'" the Indiana Republican told Cardona during a hearing Wednesday.  "And I know you probably didn't mean that, and I'll give you a chance to retract it," Braun said. "Is that something you'd want to take back?" Cardona responded by touting school boards’ commitment to returning students to classrooms but did not directly address the statement Braun was referring to. "What about the statement? And I agree with you 100% there, but would you want to take that back … not politicize something where I think it's an honest and sincere difference of opinion across the country, and I don't know that...

    In this article AAPLApple launches the iPhone 13 in the UK at its Regent Street store on September 24, 2021 in London, England.Ming Yeung | Getty ImagesThe latest version of the iPhone operating system, iOS 15, has several new features that use artificial intelligence to analyze the content in a photo. While object recognition has been around for a while, Apple says that its implementation differs because it happens on the device, instead of on a cloud server. Plus, it's built into the operating system. One of the handiest applications of this new technology is the ability to copy and paste text from a photo — so, for example, users can take a photo of a page in a book and then grab that text and put it into a document or a note.

    The New York Mets collapse coincided with the team bringing back their black jerseys for the first time since 2012. The New York Mets should burn their black jerseys right this minute because they’re cursed. At the end of July, the organization made the decision to bring back the black jerseys for the first time in nine years. Looking back, the jerseys should’ve stayed in 2012. New York decided to sport all-black during Friday games for the reminder of the season. It turned out that the season would end a lot sooner than the Mets anticipated back in July.

    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) — Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Thursday that the state has begun purchasing doses of a monoclonal antibody treatment directly from the pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline, after the federal government last week took control of distribution of the COVID-19 treatments produced by other companies. DeSantis said the first purchase was for 3,000 doses of the drug sotrovimab, which was given emergency-use authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in May. READ MORE: What Is Regeneron COVID-19 Monoclonal Antibody Treatment? The governor said last week that he would pursue a direct-purchasing agreement with GlaxoSmithKline, as the state is unable to directly buy doses of Regeneron’s monoclonal antibody treatment. Monoclonal antibodies are man-made proteins that act like human antibodies in the immune system. The treatment provides a temporary, but immediate boost to the immune system which can help reduce chances that a patient will develop serious complications. DeSantis in recent months has touted the Regeneron treatment as being effective for patients with COVID-19 symptoms and set up 25 sites to administer it.

    In this article 3333-HK .HSI Outside the China Evergrande Group Royal Mansion residential development under construction in Beijing, China, on Friday, Sept. 17, 2021.Gilles Sabrie | Bloomberg via Getty ImagesThe Chinese government is not likely to step in to give direct support to debt-ridden developer China Evergrande Group, according to S&P Global Ratings. "We do not expect the government to provide any direct support to Evergrande," said the S&P credit analysts in a Monday report. "We believe Beijing would only be compelled to step in if there is a far-reaching contagion causing multiple major developers to fail and posing systemic risks to the economy." "Evergrande failing alone would unlikely result in such a scenario," they added.Even in Evergrande's home province, the developer is insignificant to Guangdong's vast local economy — it is not too big to fail.S&P Global RatingsFears over a potential contagion from Evergrande into the broader Chinese economy and beyond dragged down the Hang Seng index in Hong Kong by more than 3% on Monday. The sell-off continued across the globe. "We believe the Chinese banking sector...
    The Los Angeles Lakers have LeBron James to thank for recruiting his longtime friend Carmelo Anthony with a phone call LeBron James is determined to win an NBA Championship with the Los Angeles Lakers next season. If James pulls it off, he’ll have Carmelo Anthony by his side in what will be Anthony’s first Championship title. It appears that James is so motivated to see this outcome, that he personally called Anthony himself to ask him to come play for the Lakers. In the most recent Million Dollaz Worth Of Game podcast episode, Anthony revealed the details behind the call that got him to LA. “I mean we talked about it years before about getting together with each other, but now I heard it. ‘Yo, I need you.’ Say less. You ain’t gotta say nothing. I already know what time it is. You hit me direct… ‘Yo champ, the time is now.’ I felt it. The time is now”LeBron James was very direct when he called Carmelo Anthony to ask him to join the LakersThe conversation between the longtime friends was...

    Olympia! Hudson! Edu! See Which Celeb Babies Celebrate Their Birthdays in September How to Inflation-Proof Your Retirement Lifelong Chicago Cubs fan Colin Sullivan prepared his entire life for this moment. The instant he picked up the home run ball and chants of “throw it back” erupted from the Wrigley Field bleachers, Sullivan, 31, had a plan. Prior to the game, Sullivan — a teacher in the Chicago suburbs — managed to snag a ball during batting practice. With an assist from his brother, Sullivan pocketed the real ball, grabbed the batting practice ball and chucked it back onto the field to satiate the ravenous fans. It was the perfect crime, or so Sullivan thought. Shortly after picking up the home run ball, Sullivan was approached by what looked like a security guard wearing a Cubs jacket. Sullivan didn’t realize it in the moment, but he was in possession of Francisco Lindor’s first home run as a member of the New York Mets. Sullivan admitted to his scheme, telling the man he swapped the balls, and that he still had...
    Former Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is a paid contributor to CNN,  and appeared on the network in that capacity Thursday morning to discuss Saturday’s planned demonstration in support of January 6th rioters. Curiously, however, McCabe was never asked about the FBI’s mishandling of the gymnast abuse scandal that literally took over CNN’s air with stunning congressional testimony on Wednesday. McCabe played a central part in the investigation of former President Donald Trump and whether his campaign had inappropriate and illegal help from Russian intel officials to rig the 2016 election. He is an expert on all things FBI, is the author of  The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump, and appears frequently on CNN to discuss all things FBI. So he is an ideal expert to discuss the failure of his department to handle the abuse that gymnasts suffered under Larry Nassar, the handling of which led current FBI Director Christopher Wray to apologize, and to the dismissal of at least one FBI agent for his mishandling. And yet… New Day didn’t...
    The Department of Homeland Security has flagged more than 40 Afghan evacuees over possible security risks. Forty-four evacuees were flagged over the last two weeks, according to DHS vetting records reviewed by the Washington Post . Fifteen of them have been transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and sixteen others have not been cleared to travel to the United States. SERVICE MEMBERS KILLED IN KABUL SUICIDE BOMBING POSTHUMOUSLY AWARDED PURPLE HEARTS There are 13 other evacuees who remain in the custody of Customs and Border Protection as they await additional screening. In addition to the 44 who were flagged, two Afghan nationals were transferred to ICE because they had previously been deported after felony convictions, according to the Post. A third, Muhamed Haroon Bahaduri, 25, is facing deportation after being charged with grand larceny by Virginia State Police for an incident at Fort Pickett on Wednesday. Biden administration officials have touted the multifaceted vetting process for the evacuees who left Afghanistan during the end of August as the U.S. and its allies withdrew their troops while the Taliban came...
    Washington, DC (CNN)The brightly-colored robotic boats made by Saildrone seem to have a death wish. Saildrone makes autonomous ocean vessels to study the environment. This summer, the Silicon Valley startup sent five of its vessels directly into the path of hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean. While airplanes can fly through hurricanes, the screaming winds kick up such huge waves that attempting to sail boats right into them is something best to be avoided.Saildrone's vessels are uncrewed, and built to survive hurricane winds and huge waves. Scientists are excited that the vessels could improve our understanding of how storms intensify. "If you're in the center of a hurricane at those type of wind speeds, the ocean is just this big, frothy mess right there where the water begins and the air ends," National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration director of engineering Chris Meinig told CNN Business. "I cannot imagine purposely flying a plane or a ship into a hurricane. I'd much rather send these robots in there and have them do their work."Saildrone has a partnership with NOAA to study how hurricanes...
    The Biden administration unveiled a plan to lower prescription drug prices for Medicare recipients on Thursday that would include backing a proposal in Congress that enables the federal government to directly negotiate with pharmaceutical companies and then passing those rates on to the private sector. 'High drug prices result in access and affordability challenges for many Americans. Twenty-four percent of adults taking prescription drugs say they are hard to afford, and nearly 10 percent of adults report not taking medication as prescribed in order to save money. Some have died as a result,' the plan's introduction reads. More than 61.2 million Americans are covered by Medicare, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. That includes people over the age of 65 and younger people with disabilities.  Biden officials have long promised to tackle the issue of rising drug prices as part of the president's Build Back Better agenda.  The new plan led by Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra (right) makes good President Biden's campaign promise to tackle surging prescription drug costs In the plan released...
    "Woke Inc." author Vivek Ramaswamy called out Big Tech censorship on behalf of the federal government during an interview on "America's Newsroom" Tuesday, saying "George Orwell is rolling in his grave" over the coordination between the two. Ramaswamy continued by explaining the hybrid relationship is a real threat to individual liberty, just days after a Gold Star mom was temporarily kicked off of Instagram after blaming the Biden administration for her son's death in Afghanistan.  RIGHT TO PRIVACY IS INTACT, BUT AMERICANS MUST FIGHT FOR IT: LARA LOGAN VIVEK RAMASWAMY: George Orwell is rolling in his grave. We live in a country where you're supposed to be able to criticize the people in power. That is what freedom means, and yet here is a woman whose son died on a humanitarian mission in Kabul and blames the President of the United States and is silenced by Instagram for doing it. Here is what George Orwell didn't imagine- he thought it would be government directly doing the censorship, and what neither our Founding Fathers nor George Orwell ever imagined was that...
