Emerging Diseases and Zoonosis at the World Health Organization (WHO), speaks during a news conference on the situation of the coronavirus at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, January 29, 2020.Denis Balibouse | Reuters The World Health Organization on Thursday warned that it is struggling to identify and track new Covid variants as governments roll back testing and surveillance, threatening the progress made in the fight against the virus. Maria van Kerkhove, the WHO's Covid-19 technical lead, said Covid is still circulating at an "incredibly intense level" around the world.

    The two children whose bodies were found rotting in suitcases abandoned in a New Zealand storage unit have finally been identified by detectives.  The chilling discovery was made earlier this month after the suitcases were bought at an auction of abandoned items from the Auckland lock-up. The children were aged between five and 10 years old and understood to have been dead for up to four years, New Zealand police said. Detectives believe they now know the identity of the children but they cannot be named publicly because to a legal suppression order.

    by Eric Lendrum   The Biden Administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) announced its plans to spend at least $1 million on a new center for so-called “two-spirit” youth, as part of its broader commitments to the LGBTQ agenda during “pride month.” As reported by Breitbart, the DOJ’s Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) is seeking out an organization to award the $1 million grant to, with the intent of creating a brand new “National Resource Center for Justice-Involved LGBTQ+ and Two-Spirit Youth.” The OJJDP’s website states that the proposed new center will “develop and disseminate resources (e.g., fact sheets, toolkits, online curriculums, webinars, training and guidance manuals, etc.)” in order to provide “training and technical assistance to juvenile justice practitioners to assist them in meeting the needs of justice-involved LGBTQ+ and Two-Spirit youth.” The center will additionally serve to “inform justice systems policies, practices, and/or programs.” The post further outlines the goals and expectations of whichever organization receives the grant. One such goal is to “increase the field’s knowledge of, and capacity to address, protective factors such as:...

    More than double the Americans in the U.S. say they identify as LGBTQ than they did a decade ago, a trend led by Gen Z adults, results from a new Gallup poll revealed this week.  A record 7.1 percent of Americans identify as straight or heterosexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender, a percentage which is up from 3.5 percent of Americans in 2012. It has been steadily increasing since the poll began.  The poll also found that 86.3 percent of Americans say they are straight or heterosexual, while 6.6 percent did not offer their orientation.   An estimated that a record 7.1 percent of all Americans now identify as LGBTQ A record 20.8% of Generation Z Americans now identify as LGBTQ, according to a new poll from Gallup published Thursday. Less than 3% of those born before 1965 do Gallup estimates from these results that within the entire US adult population, 4.0 percent of Americans identify as bisexual, 1.5 percent as gay, 1 percent as lesbian and 0.7 percent as transgender. The number of Americans identifying as bisexual is far higher among younger...
    (CNN)More adults in the US say they identify as LGBTQ than they did a decade ago, according to a new Gallup poll, a trend largely propelled by Gen Z adults. The percentage of adults who told Gallup they identify as LGBTQ has doubled since 2012, per the polling firm, from 3.5% of Americans then to 7.1% of Americans in 2021. The rise can be attributed to Gen Z, according to Gallup -- about 21% of adults born between 1997 and 2003 identify as LGBTQ. Meanwhile, 10.5% of millennials, the generation that includes adults born between 1981 and 1996, identify as LGBTQ, per the poll, and the percentages dwindle among the preceding generations. Among LGBTQ adults in the US, more than half of them -- nearly 57% -- said they were bisexual, according to Gallup's poll. That encompasses about 4% of all US adults. Gallup reported that 20.7% of LGBTQ respondents identified as gay, 13.9% as lesbian and 10% as transgender. Bisexuality is the most common LGBTQ identity among members of Gens Z and X and millennials, Gallup reported, with 15%...
    New Miami Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel’s race has been one of the most beaten-down topics surrounding his hire. It’s because it’s not as simple as black and white. Without knowing any better, one could just assume McDaniel is white, based on his appearance. But McDaniel’s father is Black. As that information came out during the NFL’s coach hiring cycle while McDaniel became a finalist for the Dolphins job, some still didn’t believe it until Andrew Hawkins, McDaniel’s former wide receiver for a year in Cleveland, posted a picture from his parents’ wedding that has since been deleted. Many have labeled him biracial. Some, including ESPN, have reported McDaniel identifies as multiracial. “It’s been very odd, to tell you the truth, this idea of identifying as something,” said McDaniel at his Thursday introductory press conference with the Dolphins. “I think people identify me as something, but I identify as a human being. And my dad is Black. So, whatever you want to call it.” The topic is at the forefront largely because of the NFL’s track...

    A newly released infrared image showed a 'swarm' of three 'Tic-Tac shaped' UFOs chase four U.S. Navy destroyers off the coast of California.  The grainy image has been released by the Navy and shows what appears to be three small dots, representing unmanned aerial systems (UAS), hovering near the USS Paul Hamilton. It was one of the many occurrences Naval ships saw over the course of weeks, as many destroyers spotted these contraptions in July 2019.  These three UAS appeared near the ship around 8pm on July 17 shortly after the USS Paul Hamilton cut location broadcasting via the Automatic Identification System (AIS). Ships are not required to broadcast their location 24/7 and usually disable the transponder in situations that call for heightened security.  This decision was not reflected on the ship's deck log, but earlier in the month, logs indicate that other ships in the area also turned of AIS during UAS activity.  Additionally, the USS Paul Hamilton's log did indicate that the UAS appeared shortly after it had turned its navigation lights on.  Shortly before 8pm, one UAS...
    The Miami Dolphins introduced Mike McDaniel as their new head coach Thursday morning. McDaniel takes over for the recently fired Brian Flores, who has since hit the NFL with a lawsuit alleging racial discrimination within the league’s hiring process for head coaches. Much has been made about McDaniel’s race and ethnic background in recent weeks, which the new Dolphins coach admitted was “odd” during his introductory presser. “It’s been very odd, to tell you the truth, this idea of ‘identifying’ as something,” McDaniel said when asked about has racial background. “I think people identify me as something, but I identity as a human being and my dad’s Black.” “It’s weird that it comes up because I’ve just tried to be a good person,” McDaniel continued. “And I think my background opens my eyes a little bit. I don’t have any real experience with racism because I think you identify me as something close to — I don’t know. I know my mom experienced it when she married my dad. I know my dad experienced it and that’s in my family....

    Scientists in Cyprus have identified a new 'Deltacron' Covid strain in 25 patients that combines the Delta and Omicron variants.  Leonidos Kostrikis, professor of biological sciences at the University of Cyprus, said the strain has a similar genetic structure to Omicron with the genomes of Delta. His team has identified 25 cases of the hybrid variant so far and  it is still too early to assess its impact, Bloomberg reported. Scientists in Cyprus have identified a new 'Deltacron' Covid strain in 25 patients that combines the Delta and Omicron variants. Pictured: a vaccination queue in Cyprus Out of those identified, 11 of them were in patients already hospitalised with Covid and 14 were among the general public.  Kostrikis said: 'We will see in the future if this strain is more pathological or more contagious or if it will prevail.'  The scientists have sent their findings to GISAID, an international database that tracks viruses.

    In a first for cancer diagnosis, a cheap and simple-to-administer test has shown the ability to tell if a patient has the disease as well as if it has spread, or 'metastasised'. Developed by a team of researchers led from the University of Oxford, the test uses magnetic fields and radio waves to measure 'metabolites' in the blood. Healthy individuals, people with localised cancer and those with metastatic cancer have metabolomic profiles that can be distinguished by the team's algorithms. The test, the team said, works on a range of different cancers and can identify the presence of the disease even in patients with non-specific symptoms. Being both rapid and inexpensive, it may help overcome some of the usual barriers to early cancer diagnosis and improve the success rate of subsequent treatments. The approach is different to those traditionally used to test for cancer, which have typically relied on detecting the presence of genetic material from tumours. In a first for cancer diagnosis, a cheap and simple-to-administer blood test has shown the ability to tell if a patient has the...

    LONDON -- With each passing hour, new restrictions were being slapped on travel from countries in southern Africa as the world scurried Saturday to contain the new omicron variant of the coronavirus that has the potential to be more resistant to the protection offered by vaccines.A host of countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada Iran, Japan, Thailand and the United States, joined others, including the European Union and the U.K. in impose restrictions on southern African countries in response to warnings over the transmissability of the new variant - against the advice of the World Health Organization. Pharmaceutical companies expressed optimism that they could finesse their vaccines to deal with the new variant though that would clearly take some time.Despite the banning of flights, there are mounting concerns that the variant has already been widely seeded around the world. Cases have been reported in travelers in Belgium, Israel and Hong Kong.On Saturday, Britain confirmed two linked cases of the new omicron variant while Germany indicated it has a probable case. Dutch authorities are also checking for the new variant after 61...
    State Department officials are “deploying technology” to diplomatic posts around the world to detect the origin of mysterious ailments known as "Havana Syndrome" amid congressional complaints that the health incidents are not being taken seriously enough by the administration. “We’re developing, obtaining, and deploying technology to the field to protect our personnel,” Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Friday. “New, technology is helping us more quickly and thoroughly evaluate a variety of potential causes of these incidents, and we’ve distributed it across posts so that we can respond rapidly to new reports.” Blinken was at pains to demonstrate that State Department leaders regard "Havana Syndrome" as a real phenomenon. The mysterious rash of apparent brain injuries afflicting U.S. personnel, first detected in Cuba, has been attributed variously to causes as wide-ranging as a novel weapon deployed by a foreign adversary or merely crickets — and the nature of the reported symptoms complicated initial efforts even to describe the ailments. “People have been profoundly, profoundly affected by this,” Blinken told reporters in an unscripted exchange after his prepared remarks. “And when...
    Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill Monday that bans transgender athletes in public schools from competing alongside the gender with which they identify, mandating that they must compete as the sex listed on their birth certificate. Texas became the sixth state to enact such restrictions by signing the bill on Monday, with proponents saying the bill, named HB-25, will 'protect girls', while critics have branded it a 'cruel' and 'discriminatory' measure that further 'stigmatizes' trans athletes. The bill, which becomes law in January, overrides a previous provision to state law that allowed trans students to get a court order permitting them to compete as the gender with which they identify with the help of an amended birth certificate.  However, trans athletes in Texas were already barred from vying in state competition under guidelines from its University Interscholastic League, which governs high school sports. The new law was passed 76-61 in the House of Representatives and a 19-12 vote in the Senate before reaching Abbott, who declined to publicly comment on the bill while signing it.  Transgender athletes in Texas...

    Forensic experts will use breakthrough DNA technology on the fragmented human remains of the unidentified 1,109 victims at the World Trade Center with the hope of providing closure for their families as the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks approaches.  The technique called Next-Generation Sequencing, or NGS, uses a device about the size of a desktop printer, which analyzes different components of DNA than longer-standing methods - instead of using the nucleus of a cell the machine looks at genetic materials found in  mitochondria. While experts have said that some of the remains have been rendered unidentifiable by the damage they're incurred, the new technology could identify samples that could not previously be analyzed.  Presently, the unidentified 7,882 fragments of the victims are stored in a 2,500- square-foot repository on bedrock between the two footprints of the Twin Towers at the National September 11 Memorial Complex - a total of 21,906 fragments were recovered.  Of the 2,754 victims of the September 11 attacks, the remains of 1,644 have been identified - Michael Haub, a member of FDNY's Ladder...

    NEWPORT BEACH (CBSLA) – Detectives have used genealogical DNA evidence to identify a man who allegedly killed an Irvine woman aboard a boat in Newport Beach more than 40 years ago. The late Kenneth Elwin Marks has identified as the killer in the shooting death of 42-year-old Judith ‘Judy’ Nesbitt, Newport Beach police reported Monday. Marks passed away in 1999. On Nov. 26, 1980, Nesbitt was killed while showing a family boat to a potential buyer, believed to be Marks. According to police, Marks followed Nesbitt into the boat’s sleeping quarters and shot her after a violent struggle. He also stole her credit cards, checkbook and cash, police said. For decades, investigators were unable to identify Nesbitt’s killer. In 2002, roots from the suspect’s hairs were used to create a limited DNA profile, which was entered into the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System. In 2018, Green Laboratories, an independent testing lab, extracted DNA from the suspect’s hair shafts to create a more expanded DNA profile. According to Newport Beach police, it was the first such DNA extraction of its kind...

    Though June tends to get much of the attention because of Pride Month, holidays and days of recognition for LGBTQ+ people don’t begin and end in just one month. For example, on Wednesday, July 14, we celebrate International Nonbinary People’s Day, which honors and centers folks who are nonbinary. Nonbinary, as a basic definition, refers to people whose gender does not fit into the binary of male and female. Nonbinary refers to gender identity, not sexual orientation. So as a few examples out of many variations, a person could identify as a nonbinary lesbian, a nonbinary queer person, or a nonbinary bisexual man. Some nonbinary people identify as transgender, but not all do.  The Trevor Project, a mental health nonprofit aimed at LGBTQ+ people, released the results of a research survey about nonbinary youth on Monday, as covered by Time. According to the new research, more than one in four LGBTQ+ youth identified as nonbinary, coming in at 26%.  Here’s a closer look at numbers from the online survey, conducted between October and December of 2020. 26% of respondents between...
    WASHINGTON (WJZ) — The FBI’s Washington Field Office has released 11 new videos of suspects who forcefully attacked federal law enforcement officers during the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol and is asking for the public’s help in identifying them. Saying identifying suspects in the attacks has been a priority, the FBI has arrested more than 500 people who took part in the riots.

    (CNN)There are more than 1 million nonbinary adults in the US, a new first-of-its-kind study found.Approximately 1.2 million people living in the US identify as nonbinary, according to a new study by the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law. Of those 1.2 million people, the majority are under 29 years old and White. "Identities and terms related to gender and sexuality shift across time," said study author Ilan H. Meyer, senior scholar of public policy at the Williams Institute, in a statement. "Our study found nonbinary adults tend to be younger, but as the use and acceptance of gender nonbinary terms continue to grow, we may see changes in numbers and characteristics of LGBTQ nonbinary people."The research team used data from two population-based surveys of LGBTQ+ people in the US. The team then examined the demographics of those who identified as nonbinary, and released those results on Tuesday.More than half of nonbinary adults are White, at approximately 58%, but 16% are multiracial, 15% are Latinx, 9% are Black, and 2% are AAPI, American-Indian or belong to other groups, the...
    By The Associated Press HANOI — Vietnam has discovered a new coronavirus variant that’s a hybrid of strains first found in India and the U.K., the Vietnamese health minister said. Health Minister Nguyen Thanh Long said Saturday that scientists identified the variant while examining the genetic makeup of the virus that had infected some recent patients. He said lab tests suggested it might spread more easily than other versions of the virus. Long says the new variant has spread to 30 of Vietnam’s 63 municipalities and provinces, and could be responsible for a recent surge in confirmed cases. Viruses often develop small genetic changes as they reproduce, and new variants of the coronavirus have been seen almost since the one that causes COVID-19 was first detected in China in late 2019. The World Health Organization has listed four global “variants of concern” – the ones found in the U.K. and India, plus two more identified in South Africa and Brazil. Vietnam initially stood out in its success battling the virus. As of early May, it had recorded just over 3,100...

Doctors suspect it could be more contagious and may be resistant to existing vaccines. The new variant originated in India where it's credited with a recent 55% surge in cases in the Maharashtra state, home to Mumbai, after months of declining cases. It contains two key mutations, which scientists call E484Q and L452R, that have been found separately in other variants but not together in a single strain, according to Dr. Benjamin Pinsky, medical director of Stanford's clinical virology laboratory, which discovered the new variant in the U.S. CNBC Health & ScienceRead CNBC's latest coverage of the Covid pandemic: Top Indian vaccine maker's production capacity is reportedly 'stressed' as Covid-19 cases rise Goldman downgrades India's growth forecast...
    LOS ANGELES (CNS) -- A team of researchers from the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center has been awarded two research grants totaling $6 million from the National Institutes of Health to identify new ways to treat pancreatic cancer, it was announced Thursday.Pancreatic cancer is the third leading cause of cancer-related mortality in the United States, accounting for more than 47,000 deaths annually. Only one in 10 people diagnosed with this particularly aggressive disease live beyond five years, and most therapies -- including conventional chemotherapies, targeted therapies and immunotherapies -- are largely unsuccessful in treating it, doctors say."Pancreatic cancer is one of the most challenging cancers to treat,'' said Dr. Caius Radu, a professor of molecular and medical pharmacology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. "The lack of effective treatments suggests there is an inadequate understanding of the biologic complexity of the disease and the mechanisms behind its resistance to therapies that work in treating other types of cancers.''The two grant-supported projects, which will be co-led by Radu and Dr. Timothy Donahue, a professor of surgery and chief...
