    Friends and family have told of their shock and disbelief over the death of New York City escort Nicole Flanagan, the girl they knew for her '100-watt smile' and how she ended up 'thrown out like trash,' stuffed in a barrel by the roadside.  The 42-year-old's body was found naked in a 55-gallon plastic barrel in a New Jersey suburb on August 13. Today she was memorialized at a small service in St Mary's Catholic Church in the heart of her hometown of Greenwich, Connecticut - 40miles but a world away from the one in which her life ended.  One of Flanagan's oldest high school friends who asked not to be named told DailyMail.com: 'It's just hard to believe, it's so sad and so shocking. I keep remembering the girl I knew, with the 100-watt smile and I keep asking myself, "What happened"?'  'I was so shocked to learn what she was doing for a living but I don't judge her and no matter what a person does nobody deserves to end up like Nicole did.' The body of...
    In America and across the globe, COVID-19 is diminishing people’s prospects, exacerbating inequality and creating ever-more feudal societies as the pandemic ravages the health and the pocketbooks of the poor and the poorly educated. Globally developing countries are suffering from what The Nation describes as “a gargantuan north-south vaccination gap” between developing countries where fewer than 10 percent of people have been vaccinated compared to around 70 percent in Western Europe, Israel, Canada and US. And within affluent countries, there’s nearly as wide a gap between well-off and well-educated populations, and rural and urban backwaters still suffering from “a pandemic of the unvaccinated.” In the long history of pestilence and plague, French historian Fernand Braudel noted, there was always a “separate demography for the rich”. As today, the affluent tended to eat better and could often escape the worst exposure to pestilence by retreating to country estates, while the poor have been left to fend for themselves as “victims of the urban graveyard effect” that’s persisted since the fall of Rome.
    (CNN)A Manatee County Sheriff's Office investigation has found that its county commissioner's actions did not rise to the "level of a crime" when she created a VIP list for Covid-19 vaccines, and limited a drive to two affluent ZIP codes in her district earlier in 2021. The sheriff's office opened the investigation in February after a citizen watchdog filed a complaint accusing Vanessa Baugh, the chair of the Board of County Commissioners, of misusing her public position, official misconduct and misuse of confidential information, according to a news release by the office.Vanessa BaughBaugh has said she chose the ZIP codes herself and also selected some people for the vaccination list, so she and others could get the vaccine. Baugh ultimately, according to the report, chose not to get the vaccine at the drive because of mounting criticism and was vaccinated at the county's public safety complex."After nearly four months, numerous interviews and a review of hundreds of documents, investigators concluded that none of Baugh's actions rose to the level of a crime," Randy Warren, Manatee County Sheriff's Office spokesperson, said...
    Starting next week, the state fairgrounds will become a mass COVID-19 vaccination site where Minnesota will give out enough doses to fully vaccinate 100,000 people over eight weeks. While the administration of Gov. Tim Walz has nine large vaccination clinics in Minnesota, this is the first to spring from a partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), which has opened similar sites around the country. Eligibility for the site will notably be determined by where people live. Only those in 38 ZIP codes across Hennepin and Ramsey counties can secure an appointment through an invitation from the state’s Vaccine Connector website. Health officials say the ZIP codes were chosen based on a confluence of factors like racial demographics and poverty. In a statement Monday, FEMA’s acting regional administrator for Minnesota Kevin Sligh said in a statement that the site “will greatly expand and expedite vaccine to the most underserved and vulnerable populations.” Article continues after advertisement Those 38 ZIP codes reach a huge swath of the Twin Cities, including many neighborhoods and cities where people of color or lower-income...
    An investigation has been launched into a Florida county commissioner who created a 'VIP list' of vaccine recipients from two wealthy zip codes - and added herself to the exclusive group.  The Manatee County Sheriff's Office said it has launched a probe into Manatee County Commissioner Vanessa Baugh to determine if she broke state laws in her organization of the three-day pop-up vaccination drive at the Premier Sports Campus in Lakewood Ranch last week.   Governor Ron DeSantis had selected the site for the drive-thru vaccine site, but Baugh admitted last week that it was her decision to limit the rollout of the 3,000 doses to seniors living in the 34202 and 34211 zip codes. Both postcodes are among the wealthiest in the entire state. She also bumped herself, Lakewood Ranch developer and GOP donor Rex Jensen, Jensen's father and two of her former neighbors onto the list.  Under the county's rules, the vaccine recipients should have been chosen at random.   The probe comes after a complaint was filed to the sheriff's office Monday by Sarasota paralegal and president of the executive committee of...
    (CNN)A Florida sheriff's office is investigating whether a Manatee County official broke the law when she organized a Covid-19 vaccine drive limited to two of the county's most affluent ZIP codes. The Manatee County Sheriff's Office said it has launched the investigation after a citizen watchdog filed a complaint regarding County Commissioner Vanessa Baugh, who last week admitted she chose the ZIP codes herself and also selected some people for the vaccination list, so she and others could access the Covid-19 vaccine. Florida county commissioner limited vaccine drive to the two richest zip codes and then created a VIP listIn a complaint to the sheriff's office, Michael Barfield, a paralegal consultant and resident of neighboring Sarasota County, said Baugh, who chairs the commission, may have violated three statutory provisions, including misuse of her public position."When Baugh inserted individuals and herself on a Covid-19 vaccine distribution list she acted contrary to the adopted Vaccine Standby Pool and used her official position to secure a special privilege, benefit, or exemption for herself and others," which could constitute misuse of her government position,...

    Matthew Rozsa June 23, 2020 5:10PM (UTC) A new study published this month in the academic journal Nature Communications argues that, despite all of the talk about using green technology to address man-made environmental problems, the only way for human consumption to become sustainable is if we rein in the affluent. "The key conclusion from our review is that we cannot rely on technology alone to solve existential environmental problems – like climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution – but that we also have to change our affluent lifestyles and reduce overconsumption, in combination with structural change," Professor Tommy Wiedmann from the University of New South Wales Engineering told that college's newspaper regarding the study. : The paper itself argued that "the affluent citizens of the world are responsible for most environmental impacts and are central to any future prospect of retreating to safer environmental conditions." The authors added that "existing societies, economies and cultures incite consumption expansion and the structural imperative for growth in competitive market economies inhibits necessary societal change" and advocated "a global and rapid decoupling of detrimental...
    Matthew McConaughey opened up in a recent interview about parenting, his own upbringing and why he started a foundation to help kids below the poverty line have a chance at success in America. The 50-year-old “Dazed and Confused” star and his wife, Camila Alves McConaughey, started the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation in 2008. The program provides kids with a place to practice physical activities and focuses on teaching gratitude and service projects. According to Town and Country, the program has since blossomed to include 84 teachers in 37 high schools servicing close to 3,000 students in six states and Washington D.C. Although the actor has a history of philanthropy, having previously helped rescue pets stranded by Hurricane Katrina and, more recently, donating 80,000 face masks to coronavirus first-responders, he said that he always wanted to do something to help high school kids specifically. MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY ASKS EMMANUEL ACHO HOW HE CAN GET OVER HIS 'WHITE ALLERGIES' “I always knew I wanted it to be kids, because I wanted the entire foundation to provide prevention before we needed a cure," he...
    Organizers of protests in Los Angeles against police brutality say they have deliberately avoided South L.A. in order to focus on more affluent areas like Hollywood and Beverly Hills. Los Angeles, like other major cities nationwide, has been dealing with mass protests sparked by the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, who died after a white police officer held his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. Many of these protests have been peaceful, but others have descended into rioting and looting that has left some businesses and buildings in ruins. Demonstrators put their hands behind their heads before being taken into custody after the city's curfew went into effect following a protest, Tuesday, June 2, 2020, in Los Angeles over the death of George Floyd.  (AP) The civil unrest, and its racial implications, has been compared to the 1992 Los Angeles riots, which broke out after a jury acquitted four white officers in the beating of Rodney King, who was black. The subsequent violence lasted five days and resulted in more than 60 deaths and...
