    Alex Stein, a far-right social media personality, targets Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez walking up steps of the Capitol building on Wednesday. The disrespect people of color have to put up with just for having the skin color we have would likely be unimaginable if I didn’t happen to be a Black woman. It is infuriating to learn that a U.S. congresswoman, specifically Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, had to put up with that disrespect. ”I posted about a deeply disgusting incident that happened today on the Capitol steps, but took it down bc it’s clearly someone seeking extremist fame,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Wednesday. “It’s just a bummer to work in an institution that openly allowed this, but talking about it only invites more. Just really sad.” Video the Democrat tweeted showed Alex Stein, a far-right social media personality, filming while yelling from the steps of the Capitol that the congresswoman “wants to kill babies, but she’s still beautiful.” That unfortunately is the kind of backhanded compliment you might expect any congresswoman to encounter amid Democratic activism in light of the U.S. Supreme Court striking down Roe v. Wade abortion protections. But the...
    Test tubes labelled "Monkeypox virus positive and negative" are seen in this illustration taken May 23, 2022. Dado Ruvic | Reuters A recent monkeypox outbreak across the U.S., Europe, Australia and the Middle East has baffled health experts and is raising concerns of a wider outbreak. As of Wednesday, there were 346 confirmed and suspected cases in 22 countries outside of Africa, where the virus is endemic, according to Our World in Data. It marks the first known community spread of the virus. Prior to this outbreak, cases had been linked to travel to regions where the virus is endemic or imported animals carrying the virus. The majority of new cases have spread through sex, with a particular concentration among men who have sex with other men. However, the World Health Organization has cautioned that anyone could be at risk of contracting the virus. Children, pregnant woman and the immunocompromised are considered particularly at risk. "Anyone who has close contact with someone who is infectious is at risk," a release on the WHO's website said Wednesday. Monkeypox is a rare disease...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — In public and across social media, anger is boiling over. Arguments are quick to erupt and sometimes turn physical. We wanted to know: Are we angrier nowadays? And what can we do to manage it? Good Question. READ MORE: Where Have All The Workers Gone? And When Are They Coming Back?From chaos in the clouds with people fighting on airplanes, to brawls at school board meetings over mask mandates, to protesters clashing with counter-protesters in the streets, people are fed up.

    The captain of HMS Defender has warned the Kremlin he will do whatever is required to protect the 240 crew serving on his ship. Speaking exclusively to the Mail, Commander Vincent Owen strongly criticised Russian forces for threatening him and the men and women under his command. On Wednesday, a Russian patrol vessel fired repetitive thudding bursts from its 30mm cannon near the British destroyer moments after Cdr Owen ignored their orders to steer away from Crimean waters.  The dramatic incident witnessed first-hand by the Mail plunged UK-Russia relations to their lowest point since the Salisbury poisonings in 2018. Cdr Owen, 42, accelerated to overtake the Russian border vessels and continued his course through Crimean territorial waters. It was then the bursts of cannon fire were heard on her port side. It followed a series of radio messages that a gunnery exercise was occurring in the area. Cdr Owen said: 'I have always got the inherent right of self-defence, to defend the men and women aboard the ship. 'It is part of my orders delegated to me by the commanding...
    The nation's top infectious disease expert says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may recommend wearing two masks. Dr Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has endorsed the use of two masks, also known as double-making, in the past - particularly a cloth mask and then a surgical mask over it. In an appearance on The Washington Post Live on Tuesday, Fauci was asked by reporter David Ignatius if the public health agency would issue guidance for all Americans to do the same. 'That's possible...In fact, just discussions with my CDC colleagues yesterday, we were talking about the CDC is looking at doing a study of seeing whether or not two masks are better than one,' Fauci replied.

    A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. And rule-breaking by any other name is still rule-breaking. Which is why Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona still have a big question to answer. The two Democrats made headlines this week when they said they would not vote to kill the legislative filibuster. Those declarations seem to put paid to liberal Democrats’ plans to blow up that longtime Senate rule requiring 60 votes to pass most bills. Mr. Manchin went out of his way to assure that there were no caveats. "I will not vote to bust the filibuster under any condition, on anything that you can think of," he told the Washington Post. Ms. Sinema likewise reassured that she is "not open to changing her mind."

    You can get a flu shot at your doctor's office or local pharmacy. Yuqing Liu/Insider Flu shots are the safest and most effective way to protect yourself from the influenza virus.  The best time to get a flu shot is in October, so it will last through the entirety of flu season, which ends around March.  It's especially important for high-risk groups to get a flu shot every year, as they are more likely to experience serious health complications from the flu.  This article was reviewed by Jason R. McKnight, MD, MS, a family medicine physician and clinical assistant professor at Texas A&M College of Medicine.  Visit Insider's Health Reference library for more advice. It's more important than ever to get a flu shot this year, with experts warning of a "twindemic" — a potentially deadly combination of COVID-19 and influenza viruses.  While being vaccinated against the flu won't protect you from COVID-19, it will help prevent you and others from getting sick, which could save lives and help lessen the burden on our healthcare system. Here's everything you...
    (CNN)The question is not whether Russia and China will try to influence Western elections -- it's whether Western governments have the wit and will to do something about it.In Washington, Democrats are warning of a fresh Russian effort to interfere in the upcoming US election with the apparent goal of helping President Donald Trump -- a reminder of the 2016 Russian hacking and social media campaign that the President still refuses to acknowledge. And speaking of indifference, a new UK parliamentary report says government ministers "actively avoided" investigating whether Russia meddled in the 2016 Brexit referendum.Even assuming that Trump in 2020 is interested in protecting American democracy before his own political interests, getting in position to repel such foreign attacks is an excruciating task. Republicans rebuffed attempts by the Obama administration four years ago to issue a bipartisan condemnation of Russia's actions. And while US and UK security agencies took heat for not doing more to protect their countries from meddling, using spies to keep elections free and fair is a slippery slope: Look at how the reputations of the...
    NEW YORK (WABC) -- Mayor Bill de Blasio said he will not allow President Trump to send federal law enforcement to New York City to protect property or deal with any unrest.Trump said that federal law enforcement has done a good job in Portland and he was considering the same approach in other U.S. cities, including New York, where police "are restricted from doing anything."De Blasio tweeted Monday evening that "We've seen the chaos secret police are creating in Portland. We won't let it happen here." We’ve seen the chaos secret police are creating in Portland. We won’t let it happen here. https://t.co/ata6VwJUHu— Mayor Bill de Blasio (@NYCMayor) July 20, 2020There have been days of unrest in Portland as demonstrations that have been taking place since the death of George Floyd continue to intensify. At one point last week, federal officers deployed tear gas and fired less-lethal rounds into a crowd of protesters in Oregon, hours after the head of the Department of Homeland Security visited Portland and called the demonstrators "violent anarchists.""It has been a fiasco, sending in federal...
    A year ago, almost to the day, writing for a 5-4 majority, Chief Justice John Roberts upheld the constitutional right of a property owner divested by a local government ordinance to sue for just compensation. The owner in Knick v. Township of Scott had failed to seek compensation in state court before filing her federal lawsuit. That meant her federal case should have been barred under the court’s 1985 ruling in Williamson County Regional Planning Commission v. Hamilton Bank. But no, reasoned the chief justice. If the justices upheld that precedent to foreclose Knick’s suit, they would be elevating their own wrongly decided precedent over the Constitution’s prohibition on government takings without just compensation. JOHN YOO: SUPREME COURT SWING VOTE – WHAT'S BEHIND JOHN ROBERTS' LEGAL GYMNASTICS? Yet Monday, in June Medical Services v. Russo, Roberts clung to stare decisis, the principle of upholding precedent, in order to protect the putative “right” to abortion, a wholesale invention of willful progressive justices that is bereft of constitutional grounding. There are, of course, four uber legislators on the court — Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor,...
