    Taking a multivitamin every day can slow an elderly person's cognitive decline by about 60 percent, a study has suggested.  Researchers at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, who carried out the three-year study on 2,000 over-65s said the pills likely helped because they prevented deficiencies of nutrients like vitamin D and zinc — vital for brain health. It was the first-large scale research to suggest multivitamins can protect the brain in old age, but the scientists admitted more research is needed before they recommend elderly people to start using the pills daily. Manufacturers and some scientists have been spouting the benefits of supplements for years, with the market already valued at up to $50billion annually in North America alone. Estimates suggest about 31 percent of Americans already thought to be at risk of at least one vitamin deficiency.  But the jury is still out on whether the tablets can slow mental decline. Some experts brand them a 'huge waste of money', while one warned earlier this month that some could even be triggering heart problems in people in their...

    Fox News contributor Richard Fowler was not letting anchor Harris Faulkner and Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell off the hook so easily after they claimed on-air that President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris had invited migrants into the U.S. The exchange began with Harris playing a clip of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) calling Harris “dead wrong” for saying the southern border was secure in a recent interview. “There’s certainly been unprecedented steps by this administration, which was when Joe Biden first got elected, inviting people into the country and they came in droves,” Caldwell began after Faulkner introduced the segment. “What this administration continues to do is lie and gaslight Americans on a weekly basis and people are fed up with it,” he added later in his remarks. “That’s why the Texas governor is shipping migrants to Chicago and New York and other places where they need to understand. This is the fact that the policies of the party which you support. So everyone needs to come together and do something about it,” Caldwell concluded. “A couple of things,”...
    Jerusalem and Abu Dhabi (CNN)The classic 1981 Marvel comic page shows the giant green Hulk, tears streaming down his face as he yells at Sabra, an Israeli superhero and agent of the country's Mossad spy agency. The corpse of a young Palestinian boy, killed in an explosion by apparently Arab "terrorists" at his feet. "Boy died because boy's people and yours both want to own land! Boy died because you wouldn't share!" the Hulk says. A few panels later, the woman in the white and blue costume with a Star of David on her chest kneels next to the boy. "It has taken the Hulk to make her see this dead Arab boy as a human being," the comic says. "It has taken a monster to awaken her own sense of humanity."

    A VETERANARIAN has revealed which animal she thinks people should never have as a pet. Izzy, known as Dogtor Izzy on TikTok, said these particular animals are bad pets because they smell terrible, are hyperactive, and have seriously sharp teeth. 2Dogtor Izzy has shared the animals she doesn't think people should have as petsCredit: TikTok As a vet, Izzy is clearly an animal lover.

    PORTSMOUTH — An event that has become all too familiar for most of Scioto County is gearing up for another day of change and prosperity. The event, Serve Day, has had thousands of volunteer hours donated to paint parks, feed children, wash clothing, spread joy, paint curbing, and so much more. The event is organized by local churches, with LifePoint serving as a sort of loose figurehead that got the ball moving many years ago. In fact, entering its 8th year, many people have a collection of the red shirts they give out to volunteers in their closets, since so many people see good in the event and return each year to give back to their community. One of those people is LifePoint’s Matt Seifert, who is excited to start his sixth year of giving back through the event. Seifert helps chair the LifePoint Committee and is also a member of the church’s Dream Team. “Something that helps bring me back to my faith is seeing organizations and churches do more than just show up for church on Sunday, but...

    Lesa Pamplin, Richardson’s godmother, is an unrepentant bigot. Pamplin ignited the Duke-BYU racial controversy when she posted tweets accusing BYU students of taunting Richardson with the N-word throughout the entirety of the volleyball match. Pamplin is a Democrat politician running for office in Texas. She was not in attendance at the volleyball match. She repeated the story her goddaughter told her. Pamplin’s tweet summoned the racial lynch mob. LeBron James, Stephen A. Smith, Dawn Staley, Ben Crump, and many others joined the manhunt to lynch BYU and its students. The mob zeroed in on a special-needs kid who briefly interacted with Richardson after the game. With no evidence and no investigation, the mob was satisfied with smearing a special-needs kid and BYU as mistreating Rachel Richardson. The autistic kid and BYU represent whiteness. We live in a time when it’s appropriate and fashionable to assume the worst of white people. The negative assumptions are taught in school under the pretense of critical race theory. Modern American culture programs us to hate white people, much the same way...

    Erik McGregor/LightRocket via Getty Images Fight disinformation: Sign up for the free Mother Jones Daily newsletter and follow the news that matters.On September 8, Queen Elizabeth II passed away. Since then, there has been a global outpouring of grief as Brits mourn the death of their longest reigning monarch.  However, I hope that in this time of grief, we can also take a moment to self-reflect. Recently, I’ve noticed a lot of people and publications using the term “rest in power” in lieu of the traditional “rest in peace” to memorialize the queen. Most notably, E! News used the term to eulogize the 96-year-old monarch in a now deleted tweet that read: “The end of a royal era. Rest in power Queen Elizabeth II.”  And they got criticized. Heavily. Hundreds of Twitter users called out the online magazine’s tone-deaf wording, noting that the turn of phrase is associated with racial and social justice movements and that it’s not really appropriate in this context. At first glance, what E! News did may not seem like a big deal. The queen was,...
    Monkeypox continues to spread across the U.S., but the pace of new cases has slowed over the last several weeks, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told lawmakers Wednesday. While the virus is still spreading at a rapid clip in certain regions of the U.S., the growth of new monkeypox cases across the country and globally has been abating in recent weeks, she testified before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions on Wednesday. "We approach this news with cautious optimism," she said at a hearing. The U.S. is working to contain the largest monkeypox outbreak in the world, with more than 22,600 cases across all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, according to data from the CDC. The disease is rarely fatal, but causes painful lesions resembling pimples or blisters. There has been one confirmed death in the U.S. as a result of the disease, according to Dr. Walensky. The Jynneos vaccine, manufactured by Danish biotech company Bavarian Nordic, is the only approved monkeypox vaccine in the U.S. Two...
    A Carnegie Mellon professor who has come under fire for wishing the Queen an 'excruciating death,' now says it is racist that white Irish people apparently celebrating the monarch's death are 'vilified' online. In an interview with The Guardian, Uju Anya, a black applied linguistics professor at the Pittsburgh university, said it is 'telling' that she received backlash online for her tweet, while videos of Irish people river dancing are being widely circulated. She was referring to a now-viral video of an Irish dance group called Cairde, in which five young men perform the River Dance outside Buckingham Palace to the song Another One Bites the Dust. The video was actually taken back in January, and was unrelated to the Queen's passing — but was given renewed attention in the aftermath when author Lauren Hough posted the clip with the caption: 'Holy s*** Irish Tiktok doesn't f*** around.' Twitter has since flagged the video as being presented out of context. Meanwhile, the Shamrock Rovers soccer club has condemned its fans for chanting 'Lizzie's in a box' at a recent game. 'I...
    The televised proceedings of the Queen's state funeral are expected to set smash all prior records and become the most watched live broadcast of all time. More than half the world's population are expected to tune in next week to watch the final chapter of the Second Elizabethan Age draw to a poignant close as the Queen is laid to rest at Westminster Abbey. Live coverage of the historic event will air on BBC One, BBC News and iPlayer throughout the day, while ITV will air the event live on its main channel.  Officials expect Westminster Hall will see almost half a million visitors coming to view the Queen's coffin in person, ahead of the state funeral on Monday. Those who are unable to visit the capital will instead switch on their televisions as they turn to 24hour streaming of the momentous event.  Industry experts have suggested a staggering 4.1 billion viewers could watch the funeral - smashing the previous record of 3.5billion who reportedly watched boxing great Muhammad Ali open the Atlanta Olympics in 1996.

    A BELGIAN artist has highlighted how easy it is to creepily track people using public CCTV feeds. Dries Depoorter created artificial intelligence (AI) software that matches up people's Instagram snaps to security footage. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Dries Depoorter (@driesdepoorter) The result is a series of compilation snaps of people posing next to landmarks around the globe. One half of the image shows their Instagram post, while the other shows them posing for the photo as seen through a CCTV camera. To create the project, called The Follower, Depoorter, 31, began by recording camera feeds that are public and broadcast live online. These included 24-hour CCTV footage captured at Times Square in New York City and outside of the famous Temple Bar pub in Dublin.

    Getty Khamzat Chimaev during UFC 273. Khamzat Chimaev put UFC 279 at risk after coming in overweight for his headlining bout against Nate Diaz. They had inked a contract to show up at 170 pounds and got an extra pound’s allowance for the nontitle welterweight contest. Chimaev tipped the scales at 178.5 pounds, a massive seven and a half over the agreement. Former rival Kevin Holland, originally on the card for a catchweight bout against Daniel Rodriguez at 180 pounds, stepped up to the task of facing “Borz” inside the octagon on a day’s notice. Chimaev dominated Holland from the start and finished him in the opening round without absorbing any significant strikes for the fourth time in his UFC career. As good as his performance was, there were concerns over his future in the division. Not many details were provided by either the promotion or the Chechen-born Swede, leaving the fans puzzled at why he failed to make weight for the first time as a professional.Coach Admits Food Is Chimaev’s WeaknessIn an interview with Brett Okamoto of...

    YouTuber and boxer Jake Paul laid into Mark Zuckerberg and claimed we don’t have “true freedom of speech anymore” thanks to big tech censorship during an event promoting an upcoming boxing match. The event diverted to the land of politics after a correspondent for the right wing Gateway Pundit asked Paul to comment on “attempts to censor Americans” and the “occupant” in the White House. “What do you think of attempts to censor Americans by big tech companies and the current occupant of the White House?” Jordan Conradson asked. Though Paul was promoting his upcoming match with Anderson Silva, the YouTuber has commented on the topics of censorship and President Joe Biden in the past. On Tuesday, he praised the “good question” and called social media platforms booting people from their platforms “fucked up.” He also feared he could be “censored” for even speaking out. “I think the state of our society is in a really interesting place and a bad place at that. Simply put, man, I don’t think there should be censorship; freedom of speech,” Paul said. “And...
    Cindy Ord/Getty Images A prominent author who wrote a biography of retired Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre disavowed his own book — calling the NFL Hall-of-Famer  “a bad guy.” Jeff Pearlman, a 10-time New York Times bestselling author, posted a thread on Twitter blasting Favre in light of allegations that the Green Bay Packers legend took welfare funds for a volleyball center in his home state of Mississippi, aided and abetted by former GOP Gov. Phil Bryant. According to Mississippi Today on Tuesday: [N]ewly released texts, filed Monday by an attorney representing Nancy New’s nonprofit, show that Bryant, Favre, New, [former Mississippi welfare head John] Davis and others worked together to channel at least $5 million of the state’s welfare funds to build a new volleyball stadium at University of Southern Mississippi, where Favre’s daughter played the sport.

Lee, 57, has spent 44 years at the Glenwood Resource Center, a state-run institution for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities. He has autism and epilepsy, and his parents decided when he was 13 that he needed the structure and constant oversight offered by a large facility. Theirs was a common decision at the time. It no longer is. The number of Americans living in such institutions has dropped more than 90% since the late 1960s. Seventeen states have closed all their large public institutions for people with disabilities.

    OAKLAND — Just a year after he was allowed to serve the remainder of his 12-year prison term at home, Derick Almena, the master tenant of the Ghost Ship warehouse where 36 people died in a 2016 fire, may be on the verge of another stint in jail. On Sept. 1, Alameda County prosecutors formally began the process of violating Almena’s probation after he was allegedly found with deadly weapons, during an Aug. 25 probation search of his Ukiah home. Mendocino County probation officers allegedly found a machete, 10 bows, more than 50 arrows, and an “unsecured” live .38 caliber bullet on top of a dresser, court records say. It is that last item, the bullet, that may land 52-year-old Almena in legal hot water. Prosecutors have filed paperwork alleging that by possessing it he committed a felony by violating the portion of California’s penal code forbidding felons from possessing any ammunition. In January 2021, Almena pleaded no contest to 36 counts of involuntary manslaughter, one for each person killed in the fire. He was sentenced two months later, with...
    R&B singer Jesse Powell has died at the age of 51 at his home in Los Angeles, his family announced Wednesday. “It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of our beloved son, brother, and uncle Jesse Powell,” his sister, Grammy winner Tamara Powell, wrote on Instagram. “Jesse loved music and he especially loved his fans who supported him throughout his career. We want you all to know that you meant the world to him,” she wrote. News of the ’90s crooner’s death sparked an outpouring of tributes on social media, where fans mournfully shared clips of their favorite slow jams by the singer-songwriter.

The song shot to No. 2 on the R&B Billboard charts and took 10th place on the Billboard...
    The Biden administration has launched a new website that shows how climate change is causing disasters across the country. The Climate Mapping for Resilience and Adaptation (CMRA) website shows how five major climate disasters are affecting the US. The map is also supposed to help local policymakers to see how they can adapt in the coming decades. The map is divided into five key threats: extreme heat, drought, wildfire, inland flooding, and coastal flooding. On the map, users can interact and zoom in on the impact on areas and even enter an address to pull up data organized by census tract, county, or tribal land. The CMRA Assessment Tool provides information on past, present, and future climate conditions. It can and should be used to understand exposure in your area so that effective planning can be done to create more resilient infrastructure in communities. According to the website, 114,119,787 people are currently experiencing drought in the US. 36,850,190 people are experiencing inland flooding, while 4,578,228 people are experiencing coastal flooding. There are currently 305 wildfires across the country. The...

    By Amir Vera | CNN The death of rapper PnB Rock in Los Angeles this week stunned the hip-hop community, but brought up familiar conversations that have been taking place for years. The rapper was shot while eating with his girlfriend at Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘N Waffles in what appears to be a robbery, according to Los Angeles Police Department Chief Michel Moore. Notably, Moore said a picture of the pair’s meal had been posted on Instagram, with the location tagged. PnB Rock isn’t the first rapper to die by gun violence, but his death is another addition to a trend that dates back to at least 2018. Each year since then, gun violence — whether through robbery or disagreement — has killed at least one rapper who was either already famous or on the cusp of crossover fame. “The ppl around these rappers gain so much.

Andy Byford, TfL's organisation's commissioner, said planning for the Queen's lying in state and funeral is more complicated than the 2012 Olympics. 4Transport for London have warned it is facing the 'biggest event and challenge' in its history as mourners pour into LondonCredit: Getty 4Mr Byford said TfL is 'used to dealing with big crowds' and will take measures such as temporarily restricting access to the busiest Tube stationsCredit: Reuters He said this was largely because it is "impossible" to accurately predict crowd sizes.

    A: My husband and I commuted on BART daily about 20 years ago. Since then, we have ridden BART periodically. Last Thursday we had our most miserable ride ever. It started out fine at Antioch station around 5 p.m. We got off at the Pittsburg transfer station and noticed a crowd of people waiting to get on. It was about 110 degrees. A fellow passenger commented that the people waiting to board looked like zombies. We soon discovered why. Jennifer Young A: Tell me more. Q: We ended up waiting in the 110-degree heat for 20, if not 30 minutes. We could not clearly hear updates because of the hot wind, and the board that shows how long it will be until the next train was not functioning. When we finally boarded the SF-bound train, we realized the air conditioning was not working. We were sweating profusely and would have turned around, if it wouldn’t have meant missing the Lady Gaga concert we were going to. We talked about going home or getting an Uber/Lyft, but it was too late to...
    San Francisco is sunk in a rancid drug-ravaged pit of human misery and city leaders have no idea how to pull themselves out of it. Here's an idea – quit digging. In the City by the Bay, 1,700 people have died from drug overdoses since the beginning of 2020. That is nearly 700 more fatalities than the county suffered from the Covid pandemic. Mayor London Breed says she's now ready to get serious about the problem, by putting an end to open-air drug markets, where users and dealers go about their crimes in full view of the public without any fear of law enforcement. That's because the progressive lunatics running the city believe that every criminal is a victim. Don't arrest them, they say, give them a hug. Now, as the bodies pile up and people flee the city they've apparently had enough. Good. So, what's the plan to clean-up the city? They don't really have one. City supervisors released a resolution for a vague 'soft-touch' initiative called 'San Francisco Recovers.' And here's the catch, and it's a doozy: the...

    A WOMAN who ended up in hospital after getting her lip filler dissolved in a botched beauty disaster has told how people compared her to Donald Duck. Ruby, 23, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, wanted to have her fillers dissolved after finding that they had migrated, which is when the material moves from its injection site to another part of the lip. 5Ruby, 23, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, wanted to have her fillers dissolved after finding that they had migrated.

Seconds after a nurse administered the dissolving agent, her lips began to grow – and minutes later, Ruby was rushed to hospital. "I told the clinic that I wanted more shape and definition but was told that if I wanted that, I'd have to get the lips dissolved and start over again as they were too full," she explained....

    Correctional officers at the federal prison complex in Victorville are suspected of creating an Instagram page spouting racist, homophobic and misogynistic memes, causing a stir in the national prison system and catching the attention of officials in Washington, D.C. The anonymous web posts accuse female Bureau of Prisons employees of trading sex for promotions, joke about sexually assaulting female prisoners and deride Blacks and Mexicans. The Instagram site goes under the name “good verbal.” “It’s a blemish to the agency,” said Don Shults, former president of the 1,000-member Victorville correctional complex union and now the local’s fair practice coordinator. “It’s unconscionable that people would do this.” In an online post, the “good verbal” writers defended their memes as dark humor by people with difficult, little appreciated jobs. “Our humor is not for everyone. This is how we deal with the horrible things we must see to earn money,” said the post. “We are the modern day sin eaters. We try to manage those who are unfit for society.” Others, however, say the memes themselves are unfit for society. One post...

    SADLY, one in two of us will develop cancer at some point during our lifetime. But some cancers are much more deadly than others, which is why it's vital to know the signs and catch it early - when you have the best chance of treating and surviving it. 1Catching cancer early is vital, so treatment can start as swiftly as possibleCredit: Getty Images There are around 167,000 cancer deaths in the UK every year, that means nearly 460 people die of the disease each day. According to the World Health Organisation the three cancers that killed the most people worldwide in 2020 were lung, colorectal and liver cancer. However, these cancers aren't necessarily the most deadly. They just happen to be quite common, so their chances of killing more people is more likely.

    FLOYD MAYWEATHER insists he decided against knocking out Conor McGregor early so the pair could have a money-spinning rematch. The 43-year-old American came out of retirement to beat the UFC star in ten rounds in 2017 before hanging up his gloves again. 3 Floyd Mayweather claims he avoided beating Conor McGregor earlyCredit: AFP or licensors McGregor started well, winning some of the opening rounds before the exhausted ring novice was picked apart by Mayweather, who barley shed a sweat until the finish. Mayweather - who claimed he only did push ups and sit ups as training for the fight - is adamant he could have ended the bout whenever he pleased. But with the possibility of a lucrative rematch taking place afterwards, the multi-millionaire decided to keep the fight competitive.

    WHEN your child is screaming and crying it can be difficult to know exactly what they want to soothe their emotions. Thankfully, one psychologist has revealed the four different types of tantrums to spot so you can deal with it appropriately. 1If you can spot what tantrum they are having it can be easier to calm them downCredit: Getty Speaking to Nine Honey, psychologist Donna Cameron revealed that with a little planning you should be able to get through their meltdowns with ease. Over-tired The first tantrum to look out for is the 'over-tired' one, if your toddler has skipped a nap or not slept well then all rationality leaves. This is the kind of tantrum where toddlers start hating the colours of their blueberries or their favourite toy. The best method to use is the 'planned ignore', where you give no attention to the behaviour.

    Washington (CNN)The Biden administration has worked with Switzerland and Afghan economists to set up a new fund that could eventually serve as a mechanism to put billions of dollars in frozen Afghan money to use to promote economic stability in the country, according to two senior US officials. The US is moving $3.5 billion to the new "Afghan Fund," but officials said they won't release the money imminently because there is no trusted institution in Afghanistan to guarantee the funds will benefit the Afghan people, the officials said.Transferring these funds to the Afghan central bank will depend on two key factors: responsible management of the bank and assurances that the funds will not be diverted to terrorists or criminals, the officials added. "We do not have that confidence today," said a senior US official. At minimum the Afghan central bank will need to "demonstrate its independence from political influence and interference." It will also need to demonstrate it has "instituted adequate anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism controls" and "complete a third party needs assessment and onboard a...
    IT is normal to feel a bit fuzzy-headed and tired in the days and weeks following a bad bout of Covid, like you would with flu. But in some cases, it appears the virus may actually bring about a serious and potentially deadly brain disease. 1It's estimated that in the UK, around one in every 14 people in the population aged 65 and over already have a form of the diseaseCredit: Reuters A new study has revealed the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease almost doubles in older people for up to one-year after having Covid. The research, from Case Western Reserve University in the US, found people over 65 are between 50 to 80 per cent more likely to develop the brain disease after catching Covid than those who don't. Experts do not know if Covid itself triggers the disease or if the virus just accelerates the onset of Alzheimer’s in people who were always going to develop it. The study, which was published in Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, found that women over the age of 85...
