    "Squad" member Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., admitted in an interview with Axios' Jonathan Swan that it would have been "unfortunate" had the filibuster not existed during the presidency of Donald Trump, as Democrats currently try to abolish the political procedure. The filibuster is a Senate debate tool in which a senator or group of senators can delay or outright prevent voting on a bill. The procedure typically benefits the minority party in the Senate and can broken by a cloture vote with 60 votes in favor. Tlaib has previously argued that supporters of the filibuster are motivated by racism.  President Joe Biden is greeted by U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) and U.S. Rep.

    The Italian influencer Chiara ferragni has denounced inequalities in the vaccination campaign in the Lombardy region (north) and accused the authorities of citing her husband’s 90 year old grandmother, the rapper Fedez, only after his criticism of the administration of vaccines. “Today Fedez’s grandmother will get the vaccine. And do you know why? Because after my posts criticizing the vaccination management yesterday, a person in charge called Luciana saying: ‘Are you Fedez’s grandmother? At 12 you can come to get vaccinated ‘”, explained Ferragni to his more than 23 million followers on the social network. The influencer disapproved of this performance, considering that, after the messages she shared on Instagram on Thursday judging the vaccination campaign in Lombardy and explaining that Luciana had not yet been vaccinated, “someone” was afraid that she might “stir public opinion“. “If yesterday I was angry, today I am even more“He wrote, while addressing a petition to the Prime Minister, Mario Draghi, (whom he said to appreciate and understand) and to the rest of the politicians:” Enough of the talk! “.

    Single injection of the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer / BioNTech or Moderna might be enough to provide immunity to people who have already been infected by the coronavirus, according to a work published in the magazine New England Journal of Medicine. Its leaders, researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine in Mount Sinai in New York, point out that the efficacy of a single dose “It would help stretch limited vaccine supplies.” Furthermore, this change could also avoid unnecessary side effects of a second dose of the vaccine, which, according to the researchers, “are significantly higher in people with pre-existing immunity to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes covid-19.” “We show that the antibody response to the first dose of the vaccine in people with pre-existing immunity equals or even exceeds the response in uninfected people after the second dose, “says Viviana Simon, author of the article. Therefore, he adds, “we believe that a single dose of the vaccine is sufficient so that people who have already been infected by SARS-CoV-2 achieve immunity. “ “Very fast immune response” In a...
    President Donald Trump called in to Fox News Wednesday to offer his tribute to talk host Rush Limbaugh – who he said shared his own beliefs that the election was stolen. 'Rush thought we won. And so do I,' said Trump in the extended interview. Trump used the segment to vent about the election, having skipped Joe Biden's inauguration after weeks claiming it had been rigged. 'I think it's disgraceful what happened. We were like a Third World country on election night,' Trump said. 'I was disappointed by voter tabulation. I think it's disgraceful what happened,' Trump said, in his first live comments since his Senate acquittal at the end of his impeachment trial on Saturday.  'I think we won substantially.

    Former President Barack Obama took to Twitter Friday to address why Civil Rights groups and lawmakers are furious over the vastly different approach law enforcement took to Wednesday’s U.S. Capitol breach compared to last summer’s Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests. Obama posted three articles to his Twitter that looked at different explanations as to why law enforcement and federal authorities were under-prepared for an event that led to the first time the Capitol was raided in over 200 years. BIDEN JOINS CLAIMS OF ‘WHITE PRIVILEGE’ DIRECTED TOWARD US CAPITOL RIOTERS A study reported by FiveThirtyEight found that between May and November last year, authorities were "more than twice as likely to attempt to break up" a left-leaning protest than a right-leaning protest. The study, conducted by the nonprofit Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project, also found that when law enforcement did chose to act, they were more likely to use force "34 percent of the time with right-wing protests compared with 51 percent with left-wing protests." President-elect Joe Biden also expressed his belief that had the crowds of men dressed in face paint and protective...

    There are 60 species of flightless birds walking the Earth today, but a new study reveals there would be at least four times the amount if not for human influences. These findings were uncovered by a team at the University College of London who compiled a list of every bird species known to have gone extinct since humans appeared on the planet.

    Less than a fortnight ago, Sir Sean Connery died in his sleep, aged 90, and those who paid lavish tribute to the screen’s first and greatest James Bond have seemed determined to confer heroic status on him. Scotland’s First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, said she was ‘heartbroken’ to hear of his death, adding: ‘Our nation is today mourning one of our best-loved sons.’ Dame Shirley Bassey, who sang the Goldfinger and Diamonds Are Forever theme songs, said: ‘He was a wonderful person, a true gentleman, and will be forever in our hearts.’ ‘He was the hero of our times,’ agreed actor Andy Garcia, his co-star in The Untouchables, for which Connery won his only Oscar.

She continued, “Even if she were in a competition that was all men, she would have emerged because she is really the best person to be the vice president because of the confidence that Joe Biden has in her.” “You have to be able to be president.

    A new bill passed by the Michigan House of Representatives would make it illegal for companies to force workers to be implanted with microchips. The legislation, called the Microchip Protection Act, or House Bill 5672, would still allow employees to volunteer for microchip implants but making implants mandatory would be against the law.  The practice is still incredibly rare in the US, but some companies in other states have begun using small RFID microchips implants as a replacement for key cards, a way to unlock work stations, and a payment method in company cafes. The Michigan House of Representatives has passed a new law that would ban the forced implantation of RFID microchips in employees The Michigan bill was introduced by Representative Bronna Kahle, who worried implants could be used to violate workers' privacy.

It is in advanced stages of infection when it can attack the liver or kidney and become present in the bloodstream.

    "The Five" co-host Juan Williams said Monday that the shooting death of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks, a black man, by a white Atlanta police officer should help Americans "understand why people are crying out for reform" of police and law enforcement practices across America. "There was no problem until he refused to be arrested. Then when the scuffle happens, he grabs the Taser and runs away and sadly is shot in the back," Williams said. "Now to me again, it seems to me a situation where he said he was going to run [to] his sister's house. And I just wonder if it wasn't in the public interest to let him run to his sister's house. He could have been picked up later, I think. "Would the public have been less safe if he had run away?" Williams asked. "I don't think there would have been a problem there. But again, you have to cede something to the judgment of the officer. I will not cede the idea that he deserved to be shot in the back."

    Half a decade has passed since comedian Jon Stewart left “The Daily Show,” which he hosted for 16 years. Much has happened politically since Stewart’s departure from that program in 2015, and the political satirist (whose new film, “Irresistible,” will be coming out on June 26) weighed in on the political climate of 2020 during an interview with the New York Times’ David Marchese. One of the topics Stewart discussed during the interview was the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25 and the huge demonstrations that have followed it. “I’d like to say I’m surprised by what happened to (Floyd), but I’m not,” Stewart told the Times. “This is a cycle……. The police are a reflection of a society. They’re not a rogue alien organization that came down to torment the black community. They’re enforcing segregation. Segregation is legally over, but it never ended.” When Stewart was asked if the “scale and intensity of the protests suggest some positive strides toward accountability,” the 57-year-old comedian responded, “Maybe. Look, every advancement toward equality has come with the spilling...

    The English doctor Thomas Dimsdale was nervous. It was the evening of October 12, 1768, and Dimsdale was preparing the empress of Russia, Catherine the Great, for her procedure. From a technical perspective, what he planned was simple, medically sound, and minimally invasive. It required only two or three small slices into Catherine’s arm. Nevertheless, Dimsdale had good reason for his concern, because into those slices he would grind a few scabby pustules teeming with variola—the virus responsible for smallpox and the death of nearly a third of those who contracted it. Though he infected Catherine at her behest, Dimsdale was so concerned about the outcome that he secretly arranged for a stagecoach to rush him out of St. Petersburg should his procedure go awry. What Dimsdale planned is alternatively called a variolation or inoculation, and while it was dangerous it nevertheless represented the pinnacle of medical achievement at the time. In a variolation, a doctor transferred smallpox pustules from a sick patient into a healthy one because—for reasons no one at the time understood—a variolated patient typically developed...

His death has sparked nationwide protests against racism and police violence.Asked by CNN's Wolf Blitzer if he thought Floyd would still be alive if he were white, Cuccinelli said, "No, I don't think he would.""What I heard in that eight-and-a-half minute clip was someone who was a bully, who is abusing his position of authority and power in the law," Cuccinelli said in reference to a video of Floyd's death. "And I have a funny feeling, I don't know anything about his professional history, but I have a feeling that we're going to find that he wasn't necessarily that well thought of as a role model among law enforcement through the time of his career, to say the least."Read MoreHis comments provide a vastly different view of America than that of the thousands of protesters...
