    MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski on Wednesday reacted to actor Matthew McConaughey’s White House press briefing the night before, in which he pushed for a series of gun control proposals. Brzezinski said that McConaughey’s remarks cut her to the “core” and suggested that Republicans who were reluctant to change gun laws should “go to the front lines here in America and actually show that you have some bravery.” “[I] guess I just would like to make a small suggestion to Republican senators, many of them who bravely walked the streets of Kyiv, the highly secured streets of Kyiv, to meet with Volodymyr Zelensky and to hear about the atrocities in Ukraine and lend their symbolic support, go to Uvalde, meet with the detectives who are gathering the evidence, taking pictures, maybe sit with Maite’s parents, hold her shoes and look at the pictures of this shattered child’s body who was unrecognizable because of the result of an AR-15 held by an 18-year-old who bought it on his birthday,” Brzezinski emphasized. “Sit with her parents and look at the evidence.

    You might want to think twice before purchasing a ultraviolet (UV) light steriliser that claims to kill the bacteria and viruses, including coronavirus, according to a new investigation. Consumer group Which? says some UV light products sold on online marketplaces may be ineffective or could pose safety risks to users. These include 'potentially dangerous' handheld UV 'wands', freestanding lamps, smartphone containers, tumble dryers and even mattresses.    It has long been known that UV light has a sterilising effect because the radiation damages the genetic material of viruses and their ability to replicate.    But UV light is a human health hazard because it can damage cells in our skin, potentially causing skin cancer, or eye problems like cataracts. Which? stresses the public to avoid buying devices marketed as providing UV sterilisation, and instead use the traditional soap and water and hand santiser to keep skin clean and virus-free.  Consumers should also opt for bleach and detergents when cleaning high-touch surfaces around the home, especially as the lockdown starts to end and guests become allowed into people's homes.  Which? is urging shoppers to think...
    PeopleImages Your insurance is up for renewal. Your cell phone contract could be coming to an end after a few years. Cable rates rise as regularly as the sun.

    If you’ve ever experieced heartburn and indigestion, you have likely experienced acid reflux as well. Acid reflux typically occurs due to some foods not digesting as they should. In all of our bodies, a ring-like muscle that acts as a valve is found at the top of our stomach and is known as the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES). This valve is supposed to close as food enters our digestive system, and when it doesn’t, stomach acid that’s supposed to help digest our food makes its way back up through our throats via the esophagus. This is what we call acid reflux. Symptoms and Causes of Acid Reflux and GERD The biggest symptom of acid reflux is a burning sensation, known as heartburn. Acid reflux is also often accompanied by indigestion, bloating, burping, and nausea. Some people may experience it occasionally, while others may have full fledge GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). Causes of GERD can include: consistently eating too much at meal times, lying in bed and eating late at night before going to sleep, eating too much fat at meals, and/or consuming too many acidic...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disorder qualified, speaks at a coronavirus endeavor drive briefing in Washington, DC, on June 26. Pool Contrasting some of the optimistic messaging coming out of the Trump administration in recent times, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s best infectious condition qualified, said it may well be time to “drop again a few yards” to feel about the primary reopening rules. He had a stark information for any one at ease with the dangers of Covid-19: “A danger for you is not just isolated to you mainly because if you get contaminated, you are element, innocently or inadvertently, of propagating the dynamic method of a pandemic.” Fauci commenced his feedback at the White House coronavirus job force briefing by admitting that some states could have opened as well quickly. “I will not assume there is time more than enough now all working day to try out and examine and determine out the multifaceted components that went into that,” Fauci stated. “Everything from probably opening a small bit far too early on some to opening at...
    Get all the latest news on coronavirus and more delivered daily to your inbox.  Sign up here.The recent surge of coronavirus cases and hospitalizations means states will need to "dial back" on reopening plans, Fox News medical contributor Dr. Marc Siegel stated Friday. In an interview on "America's Newsroom," Siegel pointed out that the numbers of cases and deaths "haven't caught up" partially because people -- mainly America's youth -- are being tested "earlier in the game," physicians have access to treatments that they didn't have in March, and they know how to handle COVID-19 in hospitals better than before. But he said the rising number of hospitalizations has forced states like Texas to halt elective surgeries again. LT. GOV. PATRICK HITS BACK AT 'FRAUD' CUOMO, SAYS TEXAS IS NOT CLOSE TO RUNNING OUT OF ICU BEDS Across the United States, 39,327 new coronavirus infections were reported by U.S. state health departments on Thursday — surpassing the previous single-day record of 38,115. Texas, Alabama, Missouri, and Nevada all reported daily highs.

    An anorexia survivor has claimed social isolation as a result of Covid-19 has created 'safe havens' for some people battling eating disorders.   Marissa Pendlebury, 28, from Warrington, Cheshire, founder of the Nourishing Routes programme, warned great care must to be taken to ease these individuals back into society when lockdown ends to avoid painful relapses. Some eating disorder charities have argued that the pandemic has heaped pressure onto sufferers, with Beat reporting a 73 per cent rise in contact across all of their channels in May compared with February.   But Marissa, a graduate and ambassador for Liverpool Hope University, said it's important to remember that for a great many sufferers, lockdown could have come at the perfect time.

    MONTEREY COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) -- One week ago, restrictions on tourism in Monterey and Carmel were lifted, allowing some laid-off workers to return as businesses reopen.But it's going to be a slow process.A sea change happened when tourism reopened in one of California's most scenic and popular destinations.Monterey's Fisherman's Wharf has shown signs of life as sheltering restrictions lifted, but it's not as though the economy has recovered overnight."What we're missing is the out-of-state and foreign visitors that generally come to Monterey and stay for the week," said Chris Shake with Fisherman's Grotto.Just as the state's economy is reopening in stages, so is the return of tourism with a focus on coaxing day visitors who can drive in from the Bay Area, Sacramento and the Central Valley.Some are ready, others say they're hesitant.This is the first time friends Alyssa and Julie have gone anywhere in three months.They're visiting Carmel and wearing face masks."I wouldn't say I'm hesitant, but I just pay attention to my surroundings and, you know, trying to be respectful of others as well," said Menlo Park resident...

    We humans like to think we’re the cream of the crop when it comes to animal life on Earth, but the truth is we’re all a bunch of mutts. Many of our ancient ancestors mingled with Neanderthals, and the telltale signs of that “mingling” are still present in our DNA today. We didn’t know that many humans had Neanderthal genetic code floating around in their bodies until about a decade ago, but new research is helping to zero in on the effects of that DNA on our bodies. Now, a new study published in Stem Cell Reports takes things one step further by actually growing human brain tissue and then searching it for Neanderthal DNA. As it turns out, traces of early human-Neanderthal interactions have been waiting to be discovered all along. For the study, which was led by J. Gray Camp of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology and the University of Basel, used stem cells from a European biobank called the Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Initiative, or HipSci for short. The individuals that have submitted...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci believes that the United States faces a problem of “anti-science bias” and a lack of trust in authority from the general public. Fauci made the comments during an appearance on the Department of Health and Human Services podcast “Learning Curve” on Wednesday. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is a key member of President Trump’s coronavirus task force and has been influential in shaping the U.S. response to the pandemic. “One of the problems we face in the United States is that, unfortunately, there is a combination of an anti-science bias that people are, for reasons that are sometimes … inconceivable and not understandable, they just don’t believe science and they don’t believe authority,” Fauci said. “When they see someone up in the White House, which has an air of authority to it, who is talking about science, there are some people who just don’t believe that, and that is unfortunate.” “Science is truth, and if you go by the evidence and by the data, you are speaking the truth,” he...
    Everything is bad and we can't have nice things so, instead, please enjoy this long, drawn-out Twitter war between two of the least liked Republican lawmakers in America and ... um, famous actor Ron Perlman, for some reason. The pushing-off point was Florida man Rep. Matt Gaetz grunting that well, if there's going to be be kneeling during the national anthem, maybe we just shouldn't have soccer at all, you soccer meanies. It all went downstream from there because Rep. Matt Gaetz and Sen.(!) Ted Cruz both think they are crackerjack twitterers who can easily Own Any Libs they come across. And it's not like they have day jobs, right? xI’d rather the US not have a soccer team than have a soccer team that won’t stand for the National Anthem. You shouldn’t get to play under our flag as our national team if you won’t stand when it is raised.— Matt Gaetz (@mattgaetz) June 11, 2020 Which resulted in this response. After this point the tweets mostly speak for themselves, so I'm just going to insert running commentary about other things here like my...
    Michelle Myers is a college admissions adviser based in the East Bay. She has dozens of clients set to attend the University of California system in the fall, “gazillions” in the California State University system and others in colleges across the west. On a scale of 1 to 10, the level of concern among her clients about student housing for the fall is about a 17. “People are incredibly concerned,” Myers said. “They’re still focused on what instruction will be, what’s in person and what’s online and which courses they need to take. And that will help determine the housing plan… “They’re waiting to see where they’re going to be absorbed.” The angst isn’t limited to the students scheduled for dormitory life in the fall. Those hoping to live anywhere on campus are facing an unprecedented situation as coronavirus wreaks havoc on every facet of higher education. The physical distancing and mitigation requirements have forced universities across the country to reimagine campus life in the fall. How much instruction will be in person? How will the dining halls serve the...
    (CNN)Today the American flag turns 243, but it doesn't look a day over 200. Here are some fun facts and common misconceptions about the iconic emblem. Betsy Ross is a phonyBetsy Ross is considered an American hero, known for creating the American flag.The story says that she lobbied Gen. George Washington to change the design, giving us the historic mock-up we've come to know and love.The truth is there is ZERO proof that this ever happened, although it is taught to elementary school children as history. Ross is more in line with American mythic legends Paul Bunyan and Johnny Appleseed than historic figures like Clara Barton or Benjamin Franklin.Read MoreMarc Leepson, author of "Old Glory, Flag: An American Biography," wrote, "Every historical study has come to the same conclusion. There's no good historical evidence that she did. But that doesn't mean she didn't. There's simply a lack of documentation. Most historians believe the story is apocryphal."President Woodrow Wilson, in a ceremony recognizing the first national observance of Flag Day, was asked about his thoughts on Ross.He replied, "Would that it...
    Slowly, very slowly, live music has been returning to a few venues around Denver, including Nocturne, Dazzle and the Mercury, with proprietors careful to observe all the rules that allow restaurants to reopen...and also offer some musical entertainment. Or so they thought until June 12, when they received an alert that the earlier okay from Denver Arts & Venues had been an error. "With regard to performances in your Restaurant, the safer at home public health order requires that performance theatres, concert halls, and music halls remain closed," read the letter from the Denver City Atotrney's Office. "This also means you may not allow live performances at this time. We apologize for any previous guidance you may have received to the contrary. We encourage you to stay up to date on all state and city orders regarding this matter.” After more attorneys got involved, Dazzle was able to proceed with its grand opening that night. But owner Donald Rossa, as well as other venue proprietors, is eager for clarification of the rules from both the city and the state. And in...
    A CNN reporter was on the street in Seattle’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) speaking about how peaceful it was Thursday. “You have to worry about the potential for bloodshed,” he reported seconds later, speaking about if protesters had to be removed by force. “Now, if in fact there is going to be federal officers, or federal law enforcement come to this area it is not going to be a pretty situation. Short of some type of major concession they’re not going to leave voluntarily,” he continued. The reporter said that food is being served, medical tents are present, and people are camping out. He also reported that music played and some watched movies, calling CHAZ “sort of a contradictory situation.” “On the one hand, it began with force, but right now it’s peaceful,” he said. The reporter pointed out that Washington is an open carry state and added, “no doubt some of these protesters are armed, so you have to worry about the potential for bloodshed, the potential for violence” in the case that law enforcement does try and...
    Women Deliver, which champions gender equality and the health and rights of girls and women all over the world, just announced its newest class of 300 young advocates from 96 countries. Almost a third of this new class is made up of LGBTQIA+ individuals working on gender equality in their communities and countries. Below, six of the advocates—from Zimbabwe, Colombia, Nigeria, the USA, and Australia—talk about their lives and activism. All of them are passionate, eloquent, and determined. Some are risking their safety and their lives to do what they believe in. Especially in Pride month, their bravery when standing up to extreme prejudice and bullies should inspire all LGBTQ people and their allies to fight on. Tim Teeman Jordan Chanetsa, 23, Zimbabwe I grew up in Harare, Zimbabwe, for the majority of my life but I finished my final years of high school in Johannesburg, South Africa.

    After testifying Wednesday at the House Judiciary Committee's hearing on police reform, Fox News contributor Dan Bongino said that members of Congress were actively considering "really stupid" ideas that seemingly were not carefully thought through. In a Thursday morning interview on "Fox & Friends" with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, the former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent noted that a handful of Democratic lawmakers were not there to "solve any problems" or listen to experience or expertise. DAN BONGINO, A CONSERVATIVE FORMER SECRET SERVICE AGENT, TO TESTIFY AT HOUSE JUDICIARY HEARING Bongino recalled that, although the sympathies expressed for the families of George Floyd or Patrick Underwood were unanimous, some on the left were in attendance just to "stoke the flames of division." Bongino explained that part of what was on the chopping block was qualified immunity for police officers. Under the judicially created doctrine and as applied to police, officers are shielded from being personally liable for constitutional violations –­ like the right to be free from excessive force –­ for money damages under federal law so long as the officials did not violate “clearly established” law. The...
    It’s been less than six months since the first known case of coronavirus surfaced in China, and less than two since the threat of the virus overtook normal life stateside and phrases like “social distancing” and “contact tracing” became lodged in our collective vocabulary. From rising unemployment statistics to promising drug trials, new information about this pandemic emerges constantly, and dozens of theories about how the disease spreads and can be treated get advanced or disproven on any given day. In recent weeks, protests against police brutality have erupted nationwide just as more places have started to reopen, and a major hydroxychloroquine trial showed the drug has no prevention benefits for Covid-19. We’ve put together a guide to everything you need to know about this pandemic—be it how to keep your children entertained or how this outbreak is affecting the economy.

    On Tuesday, at the funeral of George Floyd held in his hometown of Houston, Texas, among talk of grief there were also some ministers who took the opportunity to make political statements and slam President Trump. Rev. William ‘Bill’ Lawson, the pastor emeritus of Wheeler Baptist Churchin Houston, stated, “Obviously the first thing we have to do is to clean out the White House.” The Reverend Al Sharpton went further, saying, the White House represented “wickedness in high places.’ Lawson said: I have seen any number of struggles against racism and they have all ended up with relatively little outcome. So the question is valid; it’s a reasonable question: Is this going to be like so many other movements, a moment of anger and rage and then back to business as usual? You could say that because the prejudiced and the bigoted are not going to change. But we can do some things to change them. And that’s what I hope we will do. First of all, we can make sure that we don’t stop the fight, that we stay...
    If you’ve found you’re no longer disinfecting your hands as often or becoming more lenient toward unnecessary trips outside, you’re not alone. This unintentional phenomenon is “caution fatigue” — and you have your brain to blame. You were likely vigilant at the pandemic’s outset, consistently keeping up with ways to ensure you didn’t get infected with the coronavirus or infect others. The threat was new and urgent to your brain. And driven by the human instinct for self-preservation, fresh fear motivated you to eagerly adhere to recommended safety precautions. Fast-forward three months, and that sense of immediacy may have faded. Caution fatigue “occurs when people show low motivation or energy to comply with safety guidelines,” said Jacqueline Gollan, who holds two professorships at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine: one in psychiatry and behavioral sciences, and another in obstetrics and gynecology. “It’s reflected when we become impatient with warnings, or we don’t believe the warnings to be real or relevant, or we de-emphasize the actual risk,” she added. “And in doing that, we then bend rules or stop safety...
    Imagine that you are an unborn spirit in heaven. God condemns you to a life of poverty but will permit you to choose the country in which you will spend your life. Which country would you choose? I would choose the United States of America. A recent study by Just Facts, an excellent source of factual information, shows that after accounting for income, charity and noncash welfare benefits such as subsidized health care, housing, food stamps and other assistance programs, “the poorest 20% of Americans consume more goods and services than the national averages for all people in the world’s most affluent countries.” This includes the majority of countries that are members of Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, including its European members. The Just Facts study concludes that if the U.S. “poor” were a nation, then it would be one of the world’s richest. As early as 2010, 43% of all poor households owned their own homes. The average home owned by persons classified as poor by the Census Bureau is a three-bedroom house with one-and-a-half baths, a garage...
    Sharon Stone is offering her two million Instagram followers some nifty tips on how to create a safe room in your home during a riot. “Probably the safest bet that you have might be your bathroom because you have maybe the least windows or you’re the most tucked in there,” the 62-year-old actress said in an Instagram video on Monday. “And if that’s the case, the least windows and the place that you could lock yourself in the most.” Clad in a turban, sunglasses and bright red lipstick, Stone advised people to “put some blankets and pillows in the tub in case you’re going to need to sleep there,” and a “few non-perishable things that you can eat, some fruit or protein bars.” The “Basic Instinct” star counseled people to bring their computers, phones and chargers. She also suggested boarding up the room, if possible, and perhaps, most importantly, “Don’t panic, and if you think you’re going to panic, take any panic medications or anything that you would like to have in there and just have that place prepared for...
