    WOMEN who need medication to stop the symptoms of menopause are struggling to access the treatment they need, a minister has admitted. Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) is offered to women to help with hot flushes, mood swings, vaginal dryness and night sweats. 1HRT is offered to women who are suffering from symptoms such as hot flushes and mood swingsCredit: Alamy Health minister Marie Caulfield has now said that women face a postcode lottery with the treatment. The MP highlighted that some GPs don't even know they are able to prescribe the medication. The Sun's Fabulous Menopause Matters campaign was launched in October 2021 to empower women to demand the healthy menopause they deserve, calling for free HRT for everyone. The Department of Health announced that women would be able to get a year's worth of the drug for the cost of one prescription - £9.35.

    If you’re wondering how the Warriors have gone from a team that had to scratch, claw, and streetlight to make the play-in tournament — and then couldn’t escape it — last year, to now being a team that is arguably the best in the NBA, the last two games tell you everything you need to know. Curry is playing at an MVP level this season. He’s second in the NBA in points, and is pulling down six rebounds to go with his 6.5 assists per game. Is it the best basketball he’s ever played? Perhaps. The only hesitation there is that he has played so much brilliant basketball in his 13-year career. But without him in the lineup for the first time this season on Friday in Detroit, the Warriors were able to win. And without him doing crazy Steph Curry things on Sunday — he had two made field goals against the Raptors — they were able to win again. Last season, when Curry didn’t play for the Warriors, the team went 2-7,...
    A concerned mother whose son is being bullied over his school lunches has been met with some witheringly blunt answers after asking for help on social media. The woman, who is believed to live in the US, sought advice in a Facebook parenting group when her 10-year-old son admitted his classmates were 'making fun' of his packed lunch. A photo of his lunchbox uploaded to the group shows a plastic container filled with grapes, a peach and two hardboiled eggs in cupcake cases, all chopped into halves. The mother said she was baffled about why her son was being bullied, writing: 'Is there something I can do to help this? He seems to be picked on a lot.' Her plea sparked dozens of 'mum shaming' comments, with many criticising her for treating her 10-year-old like a baby by cutting his food and packing it in paper cases, while others urged her to avoid sending eggs and other foul-smelling snacks.  A photo of the 10-year-old's lunchbox uploaded to the group shows a plastic container filled with grapes, a peach and...
    (CBS4) – After the cleanup of three small debris slides in Glenwood Canyon, Friday morning’s re-opening of Interstate 70 is very good news to at least one business. “It affects all of our business and our employees,” said Ken Murphy, owner of Adventure Outdoors. There may be no other company with a bigger percentage stake in getting the highway open again. The company has many activities that are dependent on Glenwood Canyon; rafting, biking, ATV tours, horseback rides and jeep tours at the Bair Ranch in the canyon. In addition, Adventure Outdoors is the company that handles the reservation system for now-closed Hanging Lake. The company manages the entry point, looks after the facilities and monitors the bottom of the trail in addition to answering phone calls and emails. “We had to unfortunately tell everybody this morning ‘Listen there’s no chance it’s going to open up for this year,'” said Murphy on Thursday night. There’s no clear timeline for reopening the trail up to the lake, and thousands of reservations are now canceled. Some people are donating their fees to...

Smith Picks On Mitch Trubisky With Hilarious Rant: TRAINA THOUGHTS Much like her dad Lenny Kravitz, actress Zoë Kravitz loves tattoos. But over time, the star decided that some of the ink wasn't right for her anymore. © Provided by People Neilson Barnard/Getty "I think tattoos are a beautiful form of adornment, just like makeup or jewelry. There are some I like more than others. I have gotten a few removed," Kravitz, 32, told InStyle. While the actress has parted with some of her body art, that hasn't stopped her from wanting to add more ink in the future. "But I plan on getting more tattoos. Once you're into it, it's hard to stop," she said. © Neilson Barnard/Getty The 32-year-old actress admits she can't even keep track of all her tats anymore In fact, Kravitz said she's lost count of all of her tattoos. "It's funny because I don't even know how many I have," she said with a laugh. "I hardly see...
    (CNN)Dan Gannon wouldn't mind a full summer break. The Bronx high school history teacher is as drained as anyone by teaching remotely during the pandemic.He sympathizes with any educator taking the summer off. Many worked more hours than usual to adapt lessons and relearn how to instruct -- and carried the weight of their students' struggles with pandemic stress and isolation.But Gannon will keep working. He's helping lead his school's "summer bridge" program, which in normal years brings in rising freshmen for a few days in July to orient them to the school's policies and culture.This July, he hopes to invite rising sophomores, since they didn't have the chance last year. And he hopes to extend the program further into the summer, working with community partners to offer art and other activities. This program is in addition to normal summer school; Gannon says he wants teens to find social and emotional support after a year of "anguish and upheaval.""It's more important than ever that -- if you have the ability and platform -- you use that to make as much...

    Evan Alberto has made almost a million dollars from SnapchatCourtesy of Evan Alberto Evan Alberto says he's on track to become a millionaire in just a few weeks thanks to his consistent Snapchat usage. Since late November, the company has maintained a $1 million daily pool which it pays out to the creators of each day's top-performing videos on its short-form video service, Spotlight. The company determines payout based on how many views a video gets in comparison to that of other highly viewed snaps. The move is meant to draw more creators to make videos for Spotlight, the company's TikTok competitor, which in turn will help Snap attract and retain users. Spotlight has grown to more than 100 million monthly active users, the company said on its latest earnings call, and has over 175,000 video submissions per day. Meanwhile, the app overall grew to 265 million global daily active users in its fourth quarter of 2020, from 249 million in Q3.

    C. Douglas Golden, The Western Journal March 15, 2021 0 Comments Good Pillow, the supposed liberal rival to MyPillow set up by anti-gun activist David Hogg, has been good for plenty of things — most of them involving laughs at Good Pillow’s expense on Twitter. My favorite moment came after the company announced anti-gun activist Brandon Wolf had been added to Good Pillow’s “activist advisory board.” “Brandon has years of experience in organizing for gun violence prevention, LGBTQ rights and he’s also just an awesome person,” Hogg tweeted. As a riposte, Jessica O’Donnell, social media editor for TheBlaze, asked this: I know this is a weird question, but do any of your board members know anything about pillows https://t.co/HRLJ2Xq9Sk — Jessica O’Donnell (@heckyessica) February 9, 2021 Of course, it was always assumed making pillows was secondary — perhaps even tertiary — for Good Pillow. In fact, most people have forgotten about it by now. According to the Media Research Center, however, making pillows might never have been a concern for Hogg at all. In case you’ve forgotten, Hogg,...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — A potentially life-saving treatment for COVID-19, but many patients don’t know about it. And others are simply skipping it on purpose. CBS 2’s Steven Graves report on why the recent rollout of the vaccine is adding to the skepticism. READ MORE: Police Sources: Gang Conflict Sparked Shooting That Injured 11-Year-Old In West Pullman Suguna Siramdasu and her husband contracted a mild case of COVID-19 last December. It only took a little more than a month before both were symptom-free. “My husband’s cough, everything went away. All my smell and taste came back,” Siramdasu said. “My fatigue went away. We don’t have any lingering symptoms.” The 70-year-old and her partner got a treatment called monoclonal antibodies at Advocate Christ Medical Center. It’s better known as an antibody cocktail. It’s a one dose treatment injected through the arm. “This is a miracle drug A lot of people do not know,” Siramdasu said. The medicine is only for less severe cases, in high-risk patients who are not hospitalized. The FDA gave it emergency use approval last year, around the same...
    Francisco Lindor in Mets colors is going to take some getting used to. Former Cleveland Indian, Francisco Lindor, was spotted in orange and blue for the first time during Spring Training and it was a strange sight to see, to say the least. Lindor was traded to the New York Mets during the offseason in a blockbuster deal and now the Mets are getting their fanbase acclimated with the new player. Francisco Lindor has reported to Port St. Lucie. Photos courtesy of the Mets: pic.twitter.com/kIwpmYROR6 — Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) February 21, 2021 The thing is, it’s not just jarring for fans to see Lindor as a Met, it’s a whole big thing for the coaches too. “He showed up today, the position players were doing their physicals today, they finished and they got clearance to go out on the field and do some light work,” Mets manager Luis Rojas told the media (h/t Yahoo! Sports) “They just went to the back fields and took some BP. He was apart of the group that went out there. It was just great to see...
    Joe Thornton made his Toronto Maple Leafs debut on Wednesday night against the Montreal Canadiens. Sports fans are bound to see a longtime face of the franchise depart to join another squad, and to be honest, it just feels weird. Some examples include Michael Jordan playing for the Washington Wizards, Tony Parker suiting up for the Charlotte Hornets and even Tom Brady donning a Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniform. When it comes to veteran center Joe Thornton, it’s just weird seeing the man called “Jumbo” wear a Toronto Maple Leafs uniform. NHL fans got their first look of Thornton sporting his new uniform in the Toronto’s regular-season opener against the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.

    Pfizer to seek approval from FDA within days after further analysis finds COVID-19 vaccine 95% effective Europe has half of worlds 4M new virus cases but sees hope CNNs Abby Phillip Is Finally Getting Some Rest CNN's Abby Phillip was understandably sleep deprived and just a little stressed out the week of Nov. 3. © Provided by Instyle Courtesy Coverage for election night ended up turning into a four-day television marathon. Many of us who were at home were glued to our TV screens for nearly 96 hours straight, until CNN finally named Joe Biden President-Elect on the morning of Saturday, Nov. 7. Yet, Phillip somehow managed to stay calm, cool, collected, and absolutely flawless while covering this tumultuous election cycle. Although I can't speak for everyone, I'm pretty sure several people can relate when I say I looked like the ogre emoji by the time the results came in.

    NORTH CENTER — Revere Park is getting a host of improvements to its field house and other facilities, construction that will cause some closures in the Irving Park Road park but provide more accessibility when completed. Construction is now underway, with a goal of completing the work by November 2021. The field house at 2509 W. Irving Park Road., designed by Clarence Hatzfeld and first dedicated in 1931, needed infrastructure improvements and accessible features for people with disabilities. The Chicago Park District requested $1.5 million in TIF funds for the work, which Ald. Matt Martin (47th) agreed to in January. “There’s two phases of this project. There’s improvements to the field house and improvements to the Boys and Girls Club house,” said Tiffany Sostrin, the Park District’s director of legislative and community affairs.  Improvements to the field house include a new accessible entrance with an elevator and stairs, masonry and concrete restoration, window and doors replacements, a new roof and gutters, exterior drainage system repairs, plumbing repairs and HVAC improvements and electrical upgrades.  Revere Park’s field house at 2509 W....
    GEORGIA'S vote counting in the 2020 election is slow because some counties "forgot to press the upload button," an election official on Thursday.

    Google’s Meet videoconferencing service is getting breakout rooms, but they’ll only be available to Google Workspace Enterprise for Education customers at first, according to a Google blog post (via 9to5Google). With the feature, teachers and educators will be able to break their classes into smaller groups for things like projects or focused discussions. Google will let you make up to 100 breakout rooms in a single call. Once you’ve decided how many breakout rooms you want, Google will randomly group up the people on the call into rooms, but moderators can manually add people to other rooms if they want. Meeting moderators can also hop between rooms to check in on groups. If breakout rooms are something you might want to try out, but you aren’t an Enterprise for Education customer, you might be able to use them sometime soon — the feature will be coming to other Google Workspace editions “later this year,” according to Google. (Google Workspace, if you haven’t heard, is Google’s recent rebranding of G Suite.) Videoconferencing rival Zoom already offers breakout rooms to all...
    Dan Froomkin August 14, 2020 8:45PM (UTC) This article was co-produced with Press Watch, a new website that monitors and critiques American political coverage. Please consider supporting Press Watch by making a donation. The reporting in the New York Times, the Washington Post and the Associated Press was uncompromising: Donald Trump on Thursday fueled a false and racist "birther"-style conspiracy theory about Kamala Harris. The Post and the AP also reported without hesitation that Trump admitted that he is starving the U.S. Postal Service of funds in order to block mail-in voting. (The Times, pathetically, reported that Trump's statement "stirred new questions.") : So that's progress, right? But on the major network evening news shows — with their huge audience of lower-information voters — Trump's Postal Service admission was "bold" and "direct." (His birther lie, which came just before showtime, didn't make any of the broadcasts.) The big print firehoses get the most attention from media critics like me. Maybe that's a mistake. : ABC's "World News Tonight" is the most-watched show in all of television, with nearly 9 million viewers a night. And there, namby-pamby both-sides-ism still rules.   On Thursday...
    BALTIMORE, MD - OCTOBER 13: Andy Dalton #14 of the Cincinnati Bengals throws the ball before the game against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on October 13, 2019 in Baltimore, Maryland. (Photo by Scott Taetsch/Getty Images) The first images of Andy Dalton in a Dallas Cowboys uniform are just weird At the end of the 2019 NFL season, it was a foregone conclusion that the Cincinnati Bengals were moving on from quarterback Andy Dalton, considering they held the first overall pick, putting them in prime territory to draft LSU’s Joe Burrow. Many thought Dalton would go to a team like the Jacksonville Jaguars, but were surprised to find out that he signed a one-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys. Months after the transaction, we finally got a look at what Dalton looks like in a Cowboys uniform, and to be quite honest, it’s going to take some getting used to.

    The Eviction Ban Worked, but It’s Almost Over. Some Landlords Are Getting Ready. ProPublica is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative newsroom. Sign up for The Big Story newsletter to receive stories like this one in your inbox. As tenants across Florida lost their jobs and incomes during the coronavirus pandemic, executives at Axiom Realty Partners LLC, whose portfolio includes at least nine apartment buildings throughout the Southeast, applied pressure on some tenants to either pay rent or move out. One Axiom tenant, who asked that her name not be used for fear of retribution from her landlord, told ProPublica that she fell behind on rent in early April when her 4-year-old’s day care closed because of the pandemic. She was forced to leave her job at a staffing firm to take care of the child, who has severe autism. She relied on $275 per week in state unemployment benefits to support herself and her two young children, but money was still tight. She hasn’t met the eligibility requirements for an additional $600 per week in federal assistance. “People think you...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Only on 2. They stood in line for hours Monday, trying to pick up their missing mail. In some cases, it’s letters and packages. They’ve been waiting weeks for. CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot reports, more viewers are reaching out saying they’re getting the runaround from the post office. In the past four months, CBS 2 heard from people in Park Manor, Hyde Park, North Lawndale and Arlington Heights. Fredricka Williams had a certified letter for a July 15 court date, mailed to her on June 5th. She got the letter after the court date and a month and a half, after it was mailed. “I’ve had to pick up our own mail, simply because it wasn’t being delivered,” said Williams. “This is ridiculous! This is really ridiculous! We can’t count on the mail. I am a taxpayer, said Erma Houston. “We were having meetings with the post office about our mail, not getting our mail, getting the wrong mail,” added Juanita Eason.

    The U.S. is still "knee-deep" in the first wave of the coronavirus pandemic, as officials continue to announce record-breaking surges of new cases in some parts of the country, Dr. Anthony Fauci said Monday. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the resurgence in places like Texas, Florida, Arizona and California, where cases have skyrocketed at an alarming pace over the last few weeks, "would not be considered a wave." "It was a surge or a resurgence of infections superimposed upon a baseline," he clarified. "If you look at the graphs from Europe, the European Union as an entity, it went up and then came down to the baseline. Now they're having little blips, as you might expect, as they try to reopen. We went up, never came down to baseline, and now we're surging back up."

    EXCLUSIVE: Alicia Malone is thankful that Anna May Wong, who is considered to be Hollywood’s first Chinese-American movie star, is getting rediscovered by new fans nearly 60 years later since her death.Ryan Murphy’s newest series, Netflix’s “Hollywood,” reimagines the history of classic cinema post-World War II in which a group of aspiring actors and filmmakers try to make it big, overcoming unfair biases across race, gender and sexual orientation. The show, which features portrayals of both fictional and real-life actors, highlights Wong’s career and the mistreatment she endured. “I’m glad people are rediscovering her,” Malone, who is a Turner Classic Movies (TCM) host, told Fox News. “She was just a beautiful figure, an absolutely talented actress. She had an effect, an undeniable characteristic that just drew your eyes to her whenever she was on the screen. I think she will forever be an icon. And it’s a shame because she didn’t get to see that for herself in her lifetime. “You wonder what could have happened if Hollywood gave her the chance to play a role that was worthy of her talent,”...
