    White House press secretary Jen Psaki promised that negotiations on the Iran nuclear deal would reflect the best interests of the United States and its allies, despite criticism from some corners. The Obama administration brokered the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action in 2015, decreasing sanctions against Iran in exchange for the country reducing its stockpile of enriched uranium needed to fuel nuclear weapons. The Trump administration scrapped the pact in 2018, and the Biden administration is now looking to restore it. SENATE REPUBLICANS CHALLENGE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION ON IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL But many Republicans are challenging the deal, along with foreign leaders such as Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. "Unfortunately, there is still determination to sign the nuclear deal with Iran at almost any cost, including saying that the world’s largest terrorist organization [the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps] is not a terrorist organization,” Bennett told the Times of Israel. “This is too high a price.” Asked if that's what the U.S. is saying by pursuing the deal, Psaki defended the negotiations. "I'd say we are...
    Plant-based alternatives have been growing in popularity, as people become more conscious of their environmental footprints and the impact animal agriculture is having on the earth and animals. Because of the increased demand for plant-based foods, restaurants across the U.S. have been introducing more options for their customers. Just recently, Chipotle introduced a new plant-based chorizo, McDonald’s expanded the McPlant Burger to 600 new stores, and KFC partnered with Beyond Meat to offer vegan fried chicken. In an interview with USA TODAY, a campaign manager at World Animal Protection, Maha Bazzi, stated: “Restaurants are definitely trying to meet this rising demand for plant-based products by offering more meat alternatives on their menus. The industry is expected to stay the course in 2022 as meat alternatives evolve and become more widely accessible.” Because of the expansion of plant-based offerings and the consumer shift towards plant-based options, an estimated 700,000 animals were spared in 2021 alone. A report from World Animal Protection found that plant-based alternatives saved approximately 212,000 pigs, 92,000 cows, and 405,000 chickens. The non-profit came to the number...
    The FBI reportedly spent two years considering whether it should buy a spyware tool that would allow it to hack into any phone in the United States. US government agencies were contacted by the NSO Group, an Israeli cyberweapons firm, multiple times between 2019 and last summer, according to the New York Times Magazine. The firm, which has been accused of aiding human rights abuses in nations across the globe, demonstrated a new system, called 'Phantom,' during a presentation to officials in Washington, that could hack into any phone nationwide. While the country's top law enforcement agency ultimately did not purchase or procure the spyware software, an FBI spokesperson told the Times that investment in such technologies not only helps to 'combat crime' but also, apparently, can 'protect both the American people and our civil liberties.'  Several reasons have been offered as to why the FBI decided against procuring the device-hacking tool, chief among them a series of lawsuits and controversies that persisted against the software distribution firm at the time of negotiations.  The website of Israeli company NSO...
    Nearly 64,000 U.S. troops are at the ready in Europe to deploy to the continent's eastern flank if President Biden makes such a call to counter growing Russian aggression at the border with Ukraine.  As Vladimir Putin has deployed 100,000 Russian forces to the Ukraine border and continues to stoke fears he will invade, the U.S. may have to ready its troops and its cache of arms situated throughout Europe, including 40 warships, 175 aircraft and 90 tanks.  Military officials presented the commander-in-chief with a plan to deploy up to 50,000 troops if the security situation deteriorates and Russia launches an invasion into Ukraine.  At the same time, the U.S. told families of  U.S. embassy to go home 'due to the continued threat' of such an attack, the State Department said Sunday.  Though the number fluctuates due to changing withdrawals and deployments, the U.S. had about 175,000 troops stationed abroad as of September 2021. A total of nearly 64,000 of those service members were stationed in Europe.  The U.S. has about 750 military bases across 80 countries.  Command for the...
    Former special U.S. envoy to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad said the United States "still ha[s] unfinished business in Afghanistan" on "The Story with Martha MacCallum" Friday in light of the Taliban's takeover of the country last August. "The agreement that we made - which was condition-based under…[former President Donald] Trump['s] administration - some of those conditions have not materialized.," the author of "The Envoy: From Kabul to the White House, My Journey Through a Turbulent World" said. "The Taliban have not implemented those. We want to hold the Taliban accountable for those agreements. …I advocated that rather than disengaging, we need to press the Taliban to negotiate and reach an agreement on the implementation of the remaining parts dealing with terrorism…[and] the establishment of a broad-based government." TALIBAN-BRED TERRORISM WILL SPREAD TO US, REP. MIKE WALTZ SAYS: 'SHAMEFUL AND HUMILIATING' Khalilzad said he worried that "we were turning our back and not doing what we needed to do to protect the American interests still in Afghanistan." He argued that although President Biden's administration is "concerned" about combatting terrorism, it will fester...
    Tens of millions of dirty, used, and counterfeit nitrile gloves - some of them stained with blood - have been shipped to the United States from Thailand in recent months as fraudsters look to take advantage of the surge in demand for medical equipment due to the COVID-19 pandemic. An investigation conducted by CNN has found that Thai companies are repackaging used gloves and reselling them worldwide, including in the US, where federal authorities are only beginning to understand the scope of the crisis. Earlier this year, Thai law enforcement agencies raided warehouses of companies who sold reused nitrile gloves abroad. Workers at the warehouses used dye to color the used gloves and laundry dryers to dry them after washing. In February and March, a US company warned the Biden administration that it had received shipments with visibly soiled gloves from a company based in Thailand. The warning was issued to both Customs and Border Protection as well as the Food and Drug Administration. Despite the warnings, the counterfeit shipments continued to be imported into the country as recently as...
    LinkedIn, the last major US social media platform operating in China, will shut down its networking service and transition to a job-seeking board after Beijing authorities reportedly gave it 30 days to better regulate its content. The decision, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, was announced on Thursday by parent company Microsoft. LinkedIn joins other popular Western social media apps like Facebook, Google, Twitter, YouTube, Reddit, Zoom, Instagram, WhatsApp, Twitch, and many more that are blocked in mainland China. Those companies have been banned in China for years after they refused government demands to censor user content. 'While we are going to sunset the localized version of LinkedIn in China later this year, we will continue to have a strong presence in China to drive our new strategy and are excited to launch the new InJobs app later this year,' a LinkedIn spokesperson told DailyMail.com. LinkedIn will no longer offer its networking platform to users in China due to increased censorship demands from the government in Beijing, it was announced on Thursday The announcement was made on Thursday by...
    The captain of the Afghanistan women's team has called on FIFA to help 'save' her team-mates from the Taliban after the country fell to the Islamist group.   The future of Afghan women remains uncertain after the Taliban took control of capital city Kabul earlier this week, with women's rights severely suppressed when the group last ruled the country between 1996 and 2001.  Previously, Afghan women were not allowed to work, study, or be treated by male doctors unless accompanied by a male chaperone. Individuals who violated the sexist laws were imprisoned, publicly flogged, and even executed. And with the lives of many of her football team-mates under threat, national team captain Shabnam Mobarez, 25, who is currently residing in the United States, has asked the world football governing body to intervene in the situation in her home country.  Recalling a conversation with one of her peers on Twitter, Mobarez posted her interpretation of the conversation, which started with her saying: '“are you okay?” Afghanistan women's team captain Shabnam Mobarez has made a plea to FIFA to help her team-mates in the...
    Republican lawmakers across the U.S. are pushing for the passage of laws that would give unvaccinated Americans the same anti-discrimination protections related to race, gender and religion. The slew of bills would stop private businesses and government entities from requiring coronavirus vaccines or potentially implementing so-called 'vaccine passport' initiatives. However, the laws and proposed legislation also could curb the growing political identity marker that has come to surround COVID-19 vaccination status. Most states, according to a list accumulated by Husch Blackwell, have proposed legislation or already-signed laws protecting people from discrimination based on if they have received the coroanvirus vaccine. The biggest difference between vaccination status and other identity markers, Husch Blackwell managing partner Lowell Pearson told Axios, is that the latter are 'inherent to you.' Arkansas and Montana Governors Asa Hutchinson (left) and Greg Gianforte (right) signed into law legislation that bans private and public entities in their respective states from discriminating on the basis of vaccination status against COVID-19 Eight GOP states have already signed legislation banning vaccine passports to show proof of inoculation for...
    Russian-based hackers launched a cyberattack on at least 200 information technology management firms in the United States and demanded up to $5 million in ransom, it has been revealed. The REvil gang, a major Russian-speaking ransomware syndicate that was linked to the meat processor JBS hacking incident, appears to be behind the attack despite President Joe Biden's threat earlier this month of 'retaliation' to Russian President Vladimir Putin if the hacks continued. The massive scale of the attack, which paralyzed the networks of at least 200 U.S. companies on Friday, was revealed by a cybersecurity researcher whose company was responding to the incident. John Hammond of the security firm Huntress Labs said the criminals targeted a software supplier called Kaseya, which earlier in the day had said in a press release that the 'potential attack' had been 'limited to a small number of on-premise customers only.' 'We are in the process of investigating the root cause of the incident with an abundance of caution but we recommend that you IMMEDIATELY shutdown your VSA server until you receive further notice from us,' the company wrote.

    (CNN)Mounting evidence suggests the more contagious coronavirus variant first identified in the UK, which experts believe is partly driving an uptick of cases in places like Michigan, may already be dominant across the US."I think we are there," said William Lee, vice president of science at Helix, a company whose tests have identified a large share of variant cases across the country. "But at the end of the day, it's hard to say for sure," given gaps and delays in the data.Lee is one of the authors of a study published Tuesday in the journal Cell estimating that the variant, known as B.1.1.7, would cause the majority of Covid-19 cases in the US by March 19. Its possible to reach herd immunity, then lose it. Repeatedly. Heres what you can do to help prevent that from happeningAccording to that study, B.1.1.7 cases are expected to double every week and a half as a percentage of the country's total coronavirus cases.

    New York : Profile smaller families Photo: Andrés Correa Guatarasma / Courtesy Despite being at home longer due to the pandemic, U.S. couples will have fewer babies in 2021, based on a demographic projection. The U.S. birthrate has been falling for nearly a decade and 2019 was the lowest rate in 35 years, but the final numbers for 2020 and 2021 could fall further. It is estimated that 300 thousand fewer babies will be born in 2021, warn experts from the Brookings Institution, a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, DC. “Our mission is to carry out in-depth research that leads to new ideas to solve the problems facing society at the local, national and global levels,” according to its portal. “When the labor market is weak, aggregate birth rates go down; when the job market improves, birth rates improve, “concluded study authors Melissa Kearney and Philip Levine. The fall in the birth rate occurs when the pandemic has created a turbulent job market that has disproportionately harmed women, whose labor market share has...

    Monday, CNN “Cuomo Prime Time” host Chris Cuomo admitted journalists do their job “based on who’s in power.” Right before handing it off to Cuomo, “Anderson Cooper 360” host Anderson Cooper highlighted that Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) claimed last week he would “step in” to ensure former Vice President Joe Biden would receive U.S. intelligence briefings by last Friday. Friday passed, and Biden did not yet have the briefings, but Lankford, in a Newsmax TV interview, slammed the mainstream media for twisting what he meant by “step in.” Cuomo said that it will be “very interesting to see how the narrative unfolds” now. “State TV has got some new competition, Anderson. It’s going to be very interesting to see how the narrative unfolds. You know, for people like us, we do the job based on who’s in power. But this is going to be very interesting,” Cuomo told Cooper. “You notice what Lankford said there, how the media, not this network, is playing his words which were he would get involved,” he continued. “And now he isn’t. And we know...

    Data released Tuesday by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the actual number of coronavirus infections in some parts of the United States is anywhere between two to 13 times higher than what has been officially reported.  The CDC based its conclusions on blood samples collected from people who were given routine clinical tests across 10 geographic regions, including New York City, south Florida, Missouri and the western states of Utah and Washington. In Missouri, for example, the estimated number of actual infections was 13 times higher than the number of confirmed cases, while in Utah, the actual number was at least twice as high.    The authors of the study, which was also published on the website of JAMA Internal Medicine, said many infected people did not seek medical care or get tested because they likely had mild symptoms or none at all, and likely spread the virus among the population.  At least 40% of people who are infected do not develop symptoms.    The CDC researchers also found that only a small number of people in many...
    The memorandum marks the Trump administration’s newest work to adjust the way US populations are counted and advance the President’s immigration agenda. And like preceding attempts, the challenge will close up in court. “I have accordingly established that respect for the legislation and defense of the integrity of the democratic course of action warrant the exclusion of unlawful aliens from the apportionment base, to the extent possible and to the most extent of the President’s discretion under the regulation,” the order states. The American Civil Liberties Union options to challenge the memo, Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Task, said in a statement. “(Trump’s) most current attempt to weaponize the census for an attack on immigrant communities will be discovered unconstitutional. We are going to see him in court docket, and win, all over again,” Ho explained. Trump has very long sought to use the US census as a way to progress his immigration priorities but the Supreme Court docket rejected an endeavor to request respondents if they are US citizens in 2019. The administration, nonetheless, is authorized...

    (CNN) — Cities, states and nations have been turning to sugar taxes as a potential way to improve public health in their communities, but the jury has been out on how best to implement the fine. Taxes on sugary drinks, a new study has revealed, can lead to major health gains and reductions in health care costs — but just how much of a benefit they provide can vary by the design of the tax. Many sugar-sweetened beverage taxes are volume-based, meaning the tax may be 2 cents per ounce of the beverage’s overall volume, for instance, or 3 cents per teaspoon of sugar, which aims to reduce the consumption of a product by increasing its cost. The city of San Francisco and the nations of Mexico, Norway and the Philippines have implemented such tax designs, according to the study. Yet a tiered tax, which the study noted are in effect in the United Kingdom, Chile and France, can have differing volume tax levels based on the drinks’ sugar content per ounce of its volume. There also are taxes based...

    A fire was burning Monday in a hazardous materials warehouse at a major US air base on the island of Okinawa in southern Japan, according to the United States Army. The fire started in the morning at the building, located in the center of Kadena Air Base, and was still active a few hours later, although it was contained within the perimeter of the base, according to a statement from the US Air Force. Images broadcast on a Japanese television station showed dense columns of gray smoke coming out of the building, identified as the 18th-century Hazardous Materials Apothecary. The area was closed and area personnel were evacuated while firefighters controlled the flames, according to the statement. No injuries had been reported. The cause of the fire was unknown, the statement said. Kadena is the United States’ largest air base in the Far East. More than half of the 50,000 military in Japan are stationed in Okinawa, under a bilateral security pact. Many residents of the island have long complained about base-related environmental risks, noise and crime. The environmental impact...
