    Young girls in America are going through puberty at earlier ages than before, and while the causes are still in question, some experts fear this could have negative effects on young women's health later in life - both mentally and physically. The average age of puberty in the U.S. has dropped from the typical, biologically recognized, age of 12, to 10 for females. Black and Hispanic girls in particular are going through puberty around year earlier on average. Experts tell DailyMail.com that America's growing obesity crisis could be the root cause, blaming poor diets for pushing up puberty. Others think it could be caused by violent childhoods, and there is also the theory that it is linked to imbalance of certain hormones.  There are also the negative long-term downsides, like an association between early puberty and developing cancer - which remains unexplained for now - and the traumatic experiences caused by a young girl growing up just a little too quickly.  The phenomena was first detected by Dr Marcia Herman-Giddens, a public health expert at the University of North Carolina,...

    WHEN kids misbehave, parents must come up with constructive ways to teach them why what they did was wrong. One of the most common kinds of punishments parents turn to is taking away their children’s electronics – but there's a better way. 3A woman revealed her favorite way to teach her kids a lessonCredit: Tiktok/geisianemartins8 3She advised parents not to take the actual electronics awayCredit: Tiktok/geisianemartins8 A mother named Geisiane Martins, who goes by @geisianemartins8 on TikTok, said she came up with a punishment that works even better than taking away the iPad — and the internet is hailing her a genius. “Parents, if your kids misbehave, don’t take their electronics away,” she began. “Instead, take the charger away so you could watch the fear in their eyes as the battery slowly dies.” Viewers found the idea brilliant: “I like it, that’s really cruel lol,” one person wrote.

    A MUM has been praised after sharing her amazing transformation of a second-hand playhouse she picked up for her daughter. Katie Burrows Rapinett took to the Family Lowdown Tips & Ideas group on Facebook to share a before and after look at the playhouse project, as well as revealing the paint she'd used for it. 3Katie Burrows Rapinett took to Facebook to share a picture of the tired playhouse she'd got for her daughterCredit: Katie Burrows Rapinett 3Once she'd finished with it, the house looked amazingCredit: Katie Burrows Rapinett "A bit of a revamp project today," she wrote. In the pictures, the playhouse looked tired and a little battered beforehand. But once Katie had applied the Painter's Touch Toy Safe paint, the house was the epitome of monochrome chic. She used black paint on the house roof, shutters and door, before using white on the rest of it, including the door handle.

    Tucker Carlson on Friday night mocked CNN executives for their optimistic subscriber targets for streaming service CNN+, saying their figures were 'even less plausible' than the numbers of those who voted for Joe Biden. Carlson, whose Fox News network has delighted in their rival's struggles, was gleeful about the demise of CNN+. The streaming service began on March 29, and ended on Thursday - less than a month after its launch. CNN plowed $300 million into the venture, but the new leaders who took over when parent company Warner Media merged with Discovery took a dim view of their efforts. Carlson on Friday discussed an Axios report stating executives believed they could tap into 29 million 'CNN super fans' who would be willing to pay the $5.99 monthly fee for the service.  Tucker Carlson on Friday night mocked CNN+'s viewer targets as implausible The Fox News host ridiculed the optimistic aims of the streaming service, which only lasted a few weeks before it was axed Internal estimates suggested two other 'buckets' of potential viewers: 24 million 'news and non-fiction...
    ASTRONOMERS have shared an image of an asteroid spotted at the last minute ahead of a close flyby with Earth later today. About the size of a school bus, the space rock poses no threat to Earth but will soar nearer to our planet than the Moon. 1The asteroid 2022 HB1 is highlighted with a white arrow in this image shared by the Virtual Telescope Project in ItalyCredit: VTP The object has been added to Nasa's "Close Approaches" database under the moniker 2022 HB1. It was photographed by astronomers at the Virtual Telescope Project ahead of its approach at 10:52 p.m. UK time (17:52 EST) tonight. "The near-Earth Asteroid will have a very close, but safe, encounter with us," Gianluca Masi, who heads up the project, said. It's one of the thousands of near-Earth objects (NEOs) that are being tracked by experts 24/7. They hope to provide us with an early warning if a space rock shifts onto a collision course with our planet. Any object that comes within 4.65 million miles of us is considered "potentially hazardous" by cautious space organisations. According...
    Friday on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson reacted to rhetoric from the Biden White House on efforts undertaken by states to restrict what can be taught in public schools regarding sexuality. Carlson honed in on White House press secretary Jen Psaki and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. According to the Fox News host, while there have been various motives ascribed to why Democrats oppose measures from states on sexuality, he suggested the real effort was to usurp parental rights. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: We’ve been assessing the Biden administration for more than a year, trying to figure out what the themes are and here’s the conclusion we’ve come to: There is, in fact, a single principle that guides the Biden administration. Here’s what it is: Your rights as an American are not, in fact, inalienable. We know this because Joe Biden himself has said it out loud several times. He’s reminded you that your constitutional protections extend precisely as far as he says they do. Now, the framers famously claimed that a citizen’s rights come from God and the...
    WHEN she opened up about the perils of being beautiful and how other women "hate" her for it, Samantha Brick caused outrage. Long before the term "trolling" was even a thing, the writer took a very public pile on, with her name being Googled more in 2012 than the Duchess of Cambridge. 3Samantha Brick caused outrage 10 years ago when she wrote about how women 'hate me for being beautiful' 3Now 51, she says she's even MORE beautiful now In a piece for the Mail 10 years ago, Samantha had "written that I thought I was beautiful, which in turn meant other women often disliked me for my confidence." In return, millions attacked her, saying "I don't find you attractive at all" or even suggesting she should be "bricked to death". But Samantha, now 51, who even went on Big Brother following the piece, won't let her haters silence her - and yes, she says "women still hate me". In a fresh piece for the same paper, she writes: "I still think I'm beautiful. In fact, I'd even say I'm...
    SLEEP is a non-negotiable when it comes to leading a healthy lifestyle, and there's a way to prevent that lingering sleepy feeling you get despite getting "enough of it." Addison Jarman, a life hacker, has revealed exactly why you go through the day groggy despite getting the recommended amount of sleep. 3You should be sleeping in 90-minute cyclesCredit: Tiktok/addison.jarman 3Count backward in 90-minute blocks to see what time you need to go to sleep at nightCredit: Tiktok/addison.jarman In a video shared with her TikTok followers, Jarman explained that you should be sleeping in 90-minute cycles. "You may not be going to bed at the right time for when you have to wake up," Jarman disclosed. And, as humans sleep in 90-minute cycles, you will wake up feeling significantly less tired if you wake up at the end of one of the 90-minute cycles. To do this, you simply have to figure out what time you need to wake up, then count backward in 90-minute blocks to see what time you need to go to sleep at night. Read more...
    Lakers guard Malik Monk revealed a concerning aspect of Los Angeles’ troubled chemistry including how veterans treat rookies on the team. The Lakers have looked far from championship for this season, in part because of injuries and in part because the chemistry of the team looks completely off-balance. Malik Monk may have accidentally highlighted that latter point in a profile written by Dave McMenamin for ESPN this week. The profile covered Monk’s disappointing four seasons with the Hornets and his resurgence with the Lakers. One section focused on the guard’s relationship with rookie Astin Reaves, who he has built a strong relationship with. Malik Monk revealed how Lakers veterans treat rookiesMonk and Reaves talk every day about a variety of subjects. “S—, everything,” Monk said. “Ups and downs. Rookie wall. Older guys yelling at the rookies because it’s their fault. Everything they do, it’s your fault out there because they know everything and you don’t and when you mess up, you just got to take it. You got to deal with things like that.” It’s that bit about “older guys...
    A HOLLYWOOD actor and filmmaker has told how he was catfished by his own dad, who posed as an attractive girl to connect with his estranged son. James Morosini was 20 years old when he received a Facebook message from someone who appeared to be a pretty girl named Becca, but turned out to be his dad. 5James Morosini made a film about his experience when his father catfished him onlineCredit: Getty Images - Getty 5Morosini's father (pictured) reached out from a fake profile after his son decided to cut him from his lifeCredit: Instagram/jamesmorosini 5In I Love My Dad, Patton Oswalt plays Morosini's fatherCredit: SXSW After realizing he and "Becca" seemed to share all the same interests, the two embarked on a romantic cyber romance that included sexting and cyber-sex.

    Vladimir Putin could be 'finished' by the invasion of Ukraine after under-estimating military, social and economic resistance at home and abroad, a military expert has suggested. Professor Michael Clarke said that sending soldiers to take Kyiv was 'massively foolish' and could become a 'peak Putin' moment that leads eventually to his downfall. Russian forces are widely seen as having struggled in the face of Ukrainian military resistance and civil disobedience since entering the country 11 days ago. Today president Volodymyr Zelensky vowed that 'God will not forgive' and Ukraine 'will not forget' the slaughter of civilians by Russian forces, saying a 'day of judgement' is coming for them as Moscow was slammed for opening up 'humanitarian corridors' for civilians to flee - with routes leading into Russia itself. Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Westminster Hour, Prof Clarke said 'every day the Ukrainian government is still up and running and standing is a political victory for them and a political defeat for Russia'. 'The Russians can occupy the country at a superficial level. But given that the Ukrainians now hate them -...
    Robots performing delicate and complicated life-saving surgery was once an idea that belonged exclusively in science fiction. But it has now moved one step closer to being reality. Johns Hopkins University experts got a robot to perform one of the most 'delicate' types of operation on four pigs, tasking it with reconnecting two ends of a severed intestine.  Results showed the Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot (STAR), as it has been dubbed, was actually better than humans.  It marks a world-first, being the first time a machine has carried out keyhole surgery without the guiding hand of a human.   Senior author of the project, Professor Axel Krieger, said: 'Our findings show we can automate one of the most intricate and delicate tasks in surgery.'  Connecting two ends of an intestine is one of the most challenging gastrointestinal ops, requiring a surgeon to suture with high accuracy and consistency.   Even the slightest hand tremor or misplaced stitch can result in a leak which could have catastrophic complications for the patient. The Smart Tissue Autonomous Robot in action as it ties together two segments of pig...
    THE Queen has been hurt by all the criticism of the beleaguered Duke of York “far more deeply than anyone realises”, says a senior source within the Royal Household. The reason for the monarch’s sensitivity to the sorry saga of her second son’s tawdry involvement with billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein lies with the fact that quite simply, Prince Andrew has always been her favourite son. 3Prince Andrew is the Queen's 'favourite son' according to royal expertsCredit: Getty 3The Duke has been given the cold shoulder by his siblings since the Epstein saga unfoldedCredit: AP “And now, when Andrew desperately needs the approbation and support of his mother, she is not afraid to show it, not least by making herself available to listen to him whenever he calls or visits her at Windsor Castle. “This ghastly nightmare - and that’s the phrase she has used -  occupies her thoughts constantly and Andrew is, once again, her number one priority, never mind if it puts the noses of her other children out of joint.” The Duke of York cannot rely on the...
    A YOUNG grandmother gave birth to her son just months before her teenage daughter had her first child. Clare Milner, 34, from Newport, Shropshire, welcomed her one-year-old son, Hunter, last year, and within 12 months her eldest child, Elisse, who's 18, became pregnant with her son, Lucas. 4Clare and her son, Hunter, who was born just months before her first grandchildCredit: Caters According to the mother and daughter duo, the two are always confused as sisters by strangers when they are out and about, despite Clare actually being a grandmother as well as bringing up her youngest son too. Clare added: ''I've received funny comments all my life since being a young mum, as I had Elisse when I was 16.''

    What could be possibly more American than a group of cranky a-holes fighting for their God-given right to spread deadly diseases at fast-food restaurants? That’s peak 2021, folks; MAGA mites always save the best for last. As much as I’d like to dump most Burger King food into Boston Harbor (still a far better choice, I’d argue, than eating it), I don’t think this protest will have the historic impact these anti-vaxxers hope it will. This is neither a brave nor righteous stand, and the snowflakes involved appear to have melted faster than Frosty in that greenhouse. And bringing Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. into it—which, of course they did—is just sad. Besides, the civil rights icon famously said he hoped for the day when people are judged by the content of their character, not by the contents of their Underoos after the police show up.

    In exchange for pleading guilty to violating George Floyd's civil rights when he knelt on his neck for nine minutes, former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin made one request: to do his time in a federal prison. He'd prefer to stay in a federal prison - even though it would require a lengthier jail sentence - because it's safer and nicer than state prisons, sources said. Chauvin - already serving time for second-degree manslaughter, third-degree murder and second-degree unintentional murder - must serve a minimum of 20 years in prison and a maximum of 25, per an agreement he signed in U.S. District Court in St. Paul Minnesota last Wednesday.  Currently, Chauvin is housed at Minnesota Correctional Facility at Oak Park Heights, a maximum-security state prison. There, he is being held in the administrative segregation wing, isolated in a cell for 23 hours a day.  Corrections officers make rounds to check on inmates every 30 minutes around the clock, according to the facility's website. The white room contains a chrome toilet, a futon mattress, a small shower and a thin sliver...
    Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer predicted that the effects of climate change could be so 'horrible' that every year could top 'awful' 2020, when COVID-19 first ravaged the United States and the world.   'I tell my constituents, last year with COVID was awful, but in a few years, because of climate change, each year will be worse than COVID and each year will be worse than the next if we don't do anything about it,' the New York Democrat said at a press conference Wednesday on Capitol Hill, which was organized by the League of Conservation Voters and Climate Power.   Schumer, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other top Congressional Democrats spoke at the event, as the party tries to pass the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better social spending bill, which includes a number of key climate change provisions.  Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer predicted that the effects of climate change could be so 'horrible' that every year could top 'awful' 2020, when COVID-19 first ravaged the United States and the world 'The effect of climate change is just going to...
    Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who was known for crazy anti-vaccine views even before the pandemic, downplayed covid-19 in an interview Monday with Tucker Carlson. For years Kennedy has pushed the flat-out false assertion that vaccines can cause autism, and he has fear-mongered about vaccines on many occasions. In 2019 several of his family members penned an op-ed calling out his dangerous misinformation. On Monday night Carlson queued up a clip of his interview with Kennedy by describing him to viewers as “one of the smartest and most articulate chroniclers of the erosion of our civil liberties.” They spoke for Carlson’s Fox Nation series Tucker Carlson Today, where Kennedy spread nonsense about the covid-19 vaccines. In comments appearing to reference Dr. Anthony Fauci, Kennedy said, “It was just a doctor who has never treated a covid patient saying one week masks don’t work and a month later, everybody putting them on, and not citing one study to justify that change.” He claimed that last year the U.S. “literally got rid of every amendment of the Constitution except the Second Amendment.” And...
    The social media giant Facebook has banned advert for a political book because it contains the word 'penis' in the title. The book penned by a former aide to the former Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo and outgoing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, isn't as raunchy as the title  and Facebook's algorithm believes. Rather it is about sexism experienced in government.  Karen Hinton's publisher had planned for ads for the book, Penis Politics: A Memoir of Women, Men and Power, to be placed on Facebook, but the word for the male genitalia appeared to set off alarm bells and the postings were rejected.   Facebook has banned a tell-all political book by former Cuomo and de Blasio aide Karen Hinton. The book, Penis Politics, has been banned because of the title which is about sexism in government rather than anything sexual Hinton aired her grievances with Facebook online saying the actions were 'not surprising' 'Today Facebook banned ads for my upcoming book Penis Politics because the company objects to the title,' Hinton told Page Six.

    WE'RE living in a modern age where women are no longer expected to do all the cooking and cleaning and men are no longer the sole breadwinners. Well that's what one woman thought when she asked her husband to help out a bit more around the house as was told he didn't believe it's his place to tidy. 1The upset woman took to Reddit to explain that her husband didn't think it was his job to help around the houseCredit: Getty - Contributor The upset woman took to Reddit, to explain that she works seven days a week to maintain her start-up business and her partner works in a cinema. A while her fella was fine to chip in around the house while the cinema was closed for the pandemic, he's now decided he doesn't want to help out as he's back at work. Writing on Reddit, she said: “The chore dynamic at home was always heavily skewed; I'm very neat and like cooking, so I handled the lion's share of chores on top of my job. "After...
    For months, far-right conspiracy theorists and supporters of former President Donald Trump hoped that Cyber Ninjas' audit of the 2020 election results in Maricopa County, Arizona would show that he really won the state — only to be disappointed when the audit showed what election officials already knew: President Joe Biden won Arizona. The Cyber Ninjas didn't find what they were hoping to find, to be sure. But according to a newly released report by three elections experts, the entire review was flawed and unreliable anyway. According to New York Times journalists Michael Wines and Nick Corasaniti, "The experts, a data analyst for the Arizona Republican Party and two retired executives of a Boston-based election consulting firm, said in their report that workers for the investigators failed to count thousands of ballots in a pallet of 40 ballot-filled boxes delivered to them in the spring. Investigators went through more than 1600 ballot-filled boxes this summer to conduct their hand recount of the election in Maricopa County, the most populous county in the state. Both they and the Republican-controlled (Arizona)...

And after it went the full eight round distance, the social media sensation technically avoided defeat.

    Florida State had not had an 0-3 start to the season in nearly five decades — until Mike Norvell’s team clinched it on Saturday. Things are not going great for the Florida State Seminoles for the 2021 season. There was promise after the team lost a heartbreaking, overtime game against Notre Dame for their season opener, which then vanished after they lost to Jacksonville State on a Hail Mary. As it turns out, things got even worse for head coach Mike Norvell. After Florida State’s 35-14 loss to Wake Forest, the Seminoles have started off the season with an 0-3 record for the first time since 1976, which was the first year Bobby Bowden was head coach of the program.

    “Trophy hunting is leading to the extinction of a number of species. Scientific studies have demonstrated the links between trophy hunting and population declines. Yet exports of hunting trophies continue to increase. The annual lion hunting quota is now equivalent to one-third of the males that can be hunted. For the good of conservation, the days of the ‘Great White Hunter’ should be brought to a close.” — Jane Goodall It’s easy to understand why trophy hunting is bad. Tourists, who are typically white and rich, pay thousands of dollars to kill rare, endangered, and beautiful animals in the wild. Lions, elephants, gazelle, and several other species are all at high risk of being shot down for an adrenaline rush, a picture, and maybe a new mantlepiece to boast about. But there are also horrible sides to trophy hunting that aren’t related to the death of wild animals. It’s also addictive and represents how white privilege and wealth are destroying the livelihoods of the less fortunate.  Addiction  There have been accounts of trophy hunting being addictive. Paul Roberts, a trophy...
    Safe, age-appropriate, and affordable gender-affirming medical care is crucial for transgender and nonbinary folks. Affirming care can be a number of things, ranging from a medical professional supporting the use of pronouns to prescribing hormonal treatments to surgery. Sometimes trial and error are involved to find the best fit, and sometimes people pause and restart treatment over the course of a lifetime. All of that is normal and valid. Sadly, however, it’s considerably difficult for trans folks in the United States to access gender-affirming care to begin with, and according to a new survey published in PLoS One journal in July, as covered by Julia Métraux at VeryWell Health, during the COVID-19 pandemic, many trans and nonbinary folks struggled to find affirming care and services. Some reported having to delay treatment because of finances and 15% reported losing their job due to the pandemic. Researchers suggest reductions in gender-affirming care may have increased mental health symptoms, including anxiety and depression, as reported in their sample. Let’s check out more findings below—and go over how to help. Before we get into more numbers, here’s some background on...

    Recent shootings in Atlanta, Georgia, and Boulder, Colorado, are driving a renewed push to ban “assault-style” rifles like the AR-15 — but according to FBI data, far more murders are committed with handguns, knives or even hands and feet. The FBI’s most recent data from 2019 shows that while firearms account for the vast majority of homicides overall — 10,258 — the number of homicides committed using a rifle (364) is much smaller. (RELATED: FBI Stats Show Knives Kill Far More People Than Rifles In America – It’s Not Even Close) Handguns were listed as the primary weapon in 6,368 cases, and shotguns accounted for another 200. There were 45 cases that named “other gun” as the weapon, and 3,281 cases in which the type of firearm was not specified. Assuming the unspecified cases follow the same ratio as the reported firearm types, the number of cases in which a rifle was used would increase by approximately 120 — bringing that total number to 484. In addition, 600 people were killed in 2019 with what the FBI refers to as...

    London (CNN)When members of an English town's local government committee met to discuss planning matters before Christmas, they had little idea that their Zoom call would become the cinematic event of the decade.But on Wednesday, still recovering from their reluctant brush with fame, members of Handforth Parish Council convened again to give the people what they wanted: A sequel.The group's first meeting went viral around the world earlier this month thanks to its enthralling dysfunction, petty disagreements and Machiavellian maneuvers, as councilors vied for power and senior officials were dramatically ousted to the virtual waiting room.Their follow-up meeting was widely anticipated. And, if possible, it unraveled into deeper chaos still, as members of the public butted in and the main characters reckoned with their newfound celebrity.Jackie Weaver, Britney Spears and a local coup détat: A breakdown of the worlds worst Zoom callBut it was notably missing the lead character from the original -- Jackie Weaver, an adviser to local councils, who won plaudits for rebuffing the abuse of some members, booting the council's chairman Brian Tolver from the discussion and...
    You look at the food bank lines and you know it's true. It hasn’t been hard to see some of the ways the coronavirus pandemic has made inequality worse in the United States, from healthcare inequities and racial disparities in who has gotten sick and who has lived and died, to the way many retail companies saw profits rise—then poured that money into stock buybacks while stiffing workers on hazard pay—to women, and especially women of color, being forced out of the paid workforce. But don’t expect it to end there. Oxfam surveyed 295 economists from 79 countries on the pandemic’s impact on inequality that they are seeing and expect to see going forward. Nearly nine out of 10 of them—87%—said there will be an increase in income inequality, while 78% predicted a rise in wealth inequality, 66% predicted a rise in racial inequality, and 56% predicted a rise in gender inequality.

Facebook Messenger, for instance, has come under fire in recent weeks for its lax attitude to user privacy. 4Facebook Messenger collects plenty of data on its usersCredit: Getty - Contributor The chat app, which has 1.3billion users worldwide, tracks your precise location, reads your private messages and even scans your calendar app. The app's troubling privacy terms were highlighted by cyber security expert Zak Doffman in an article for Forbes over the weekend. He described Messenger's data harvesting as "significantly more alarming" than WhatsApp's. WhatsApp was subjected to a social media firestorm last week over enforced changes to its terms of service that permit it to share more user data with Facebook. 4This table produced using information on the Apple App Store shows the private data collected by popular messaging appsCredit: Apple Some fans expressed concerns that their messages would be snooped on by the social media giant, though WhatsApp strongly denies the allegations.

    By Brian Stelter | CNN Business News outlets are publishing more and more videos, photos and testimonials from Wednesday’s pro-Trump riot on Capitol Hill. And it’s becoming clear that as heinous as the attack looked in real time, on live TV and in our social feeds, it was even worse than we knew then. It was even more violent. It was even more treacherous. And Trump’s behavior was even more disturbing. On Wednesday we witnessed history through a handful of soda straws, to borrow a metaphor from the 2003 Iraq invasion. Journalists bravely covered the riot in real time and deserve enormous credit for doing so. But in the fog of chaos, it was impossible to see the full picture as it was happening. The public didn’t find out that a US Capitol Police officer was gravely wounded until Thursday, for example. Officer Brian D. Sicknick died Thursday night, and federal prosecutors have now opened a homicide investigation. As is the case with many traumatic events, it has taken some time for the reality to sink in. “I was in...

    Alexandra Botez has been called the "real-life Beth Harmon." Courtesy of Alexandra Botez; Netflix The modern-day Beth Harmon Alexandra Botez told Insider that "The Queen's Gambit" was the "best portrayal of chess" she's ever seen on screen. Botez also relates to how Harmon's character wasn't taken seriously as a female player. But Botez said the show wasn't nearly as sexist as the actual chess world, especially given the time period. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Netflix's "The Queen's Gambit" is the most accurate portrayal of chess in Hollywood, but it doesn't go far enough to depict the sexism ingrained in the culture of the sport, female chess influencer Alexandra Botez told Insider. Botez is a Twitch chess streamer who started training with her dad when she was just 6 years old. By the time she was 8, Botez won her first national championship. She said she went on to win six more championship titles by the time she graduated from high school. She holds the International Chess Federation title of Women's FIDE Master. "It's wild what...

    A South Dakota nurse who cares for COVID-19 patients says one of the hardest parts of her job is convincing a number of those who are critically ill that the deadly virus is actually real. After sharing a thread of her experiences to Twitter over the weekend, nurse Jodi Doering appeared on CNN’s New Day on Monday to describe how many of her patients are still in denial about coronavirus, willing to believe almost anything else has made them sick. ‘I think the hardest thing to watch is that people are still looking for something else and they want a magic answer, and they don't want to believe that COVID is real,’ she told the network. ‘People want it to be influenza, they want it to be pneumonia, we’ve even had people say, “I think it could be lung cancer.”’ She continued: ‘Even after the positive test results come back, they still don’t want to believe it.’ Doering added that, in some cases, her patients’ dying words have been: ‘This can’t be happening, it’s not real.'

    Raising children is expensive, but that hasn’t stopped Nic and Court from keeping their annual expenses below $25,000, even with a 2-year-old daughter. It helps that the two are masters at the FIRE movement, short for “Financial Independence, Retire Early.” The Calgary, Alberta, couple officially became financially independent two years ago, when their daughter was born. Nic no longer works, and Court works part-time. Even still, they save half of her salary. From smart moves in their 20s to financial independence in their 30s They live well below their means. The couple, who blog at Modern FImily, have $890,000 put away for their future, including five years’ worth of expenses in cash, and spend less than $25,000 a year. “What we are able to do now in our 30s with a child, a lot of it stems from setting us up to be in this position when we were in our 20s,” Court said. Back then, they did it so that they could pay down debts such as student loans and a mortgage while also traveling, but the...
    He is a broke loser. Back in July, newly installed Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien kicked off his stewardship of the USS Trump by proclaiming: “With 109 days left, our goal is clear – to win each day we have left until election day. If we win more days than Joe Biden wins, President Trump will be re-elected.” Aside from the stupidity of that statement—that’s how presidents are elected—it’s hard to see any day that impeached president Donald Trump has “won,” right? And now we’re one week closer to the election, and Trump is once again on the defensive in the wake of the explosive New York Times revelations over his tax returns. It’s the last place he wanted to be since, to be perfectly clear, he’s getting his ass whooped electorally.  We can start with the two presidential candidates’ approval numbers. Trump is headed the wrong way:  x Civiqs Results That -14 net job approval is tied for the worst he’s seen all year, and the only time it’s been worse in his presidency was in March 2017 when he tried to...
    There’s one way parents can arm their families against getting sick this fall — but many moms and dads don’t want to do it. Vaccinating children against the flu is “more important than ever” this year, according to the new American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendations for preventing influenza during the 2020-21 flu season. But one in three American parents plan to skip getting flu shots for their kids during the pandemic, according to the National Poll on Children’s Health released Monday. What’s more, two-thirds of the surveyed parents (66%) said they did not believe that getting their kids vaccinated against the flu was more important this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. That runs counter to what many pediatricians have been saying. Public officials are concerned about a “twindemic” of both the novel coronavirus causing COVID-19 and the seasonal flu overwhelming hospital beds and emergency services this fall and winter. More than 189,215 Americans have died from COVID-19, according to the latest data from Johns Hopkins University. And the flu is responsible for between 12,000 and 61,000 deaths...
    President Donald Trump on Monday attacked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as 'crazy' after she refused to rule out impeaching him in a gambit that could be used to stall a Supreme Court confirmation process.  Trump blasted the idea – which has some political risks and practical flaws – as he defended his infamous July 25, 2019 call with the president of Ukraine that was the subject of the Democratic impeachment effort as 'perfect.' '@SenateGOP Crazy Nancy Pelosi wants to Impeach me if I fulfill my Constitutional Obligation to put forth a Nominee for the vacated seat on the United States Supreme Court. This would be a FIRST, even crazier than being Impeached for making a PERFECT phone call to Ukrainian Pres,' Trump tweeted Monday morning. The blast came hours after Pelosi refused to rule out impeachment as one of the 'options' Democrats could avail themselves of in an effort to try to stall a vote on the judicial vacancy.    Pelosi on Sunday refused to rule out pushing forward a privileged impeachment resolution that would have the effect of eating...
    A woman has performed Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's hit 'WAP' in American Sign Language (ASL) - and the resulting footage is even more graphic than the song's raunchy music video.  YouTube star Libbey Ketterer, 22, from Ohio, has more than 527,000 subscribers to her channel, The Daily Sign, where she posts footage of herself signing to popular music, including Taylor Swift's 'Lover' and Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Call Me Maybe.' But she had a surefire hit on her hand when she took on the highly-sexual lyrics to 'WAP' in a video she posted on her channel on August 28.  Scroll down for video   Going viral: Libbey Ketterer, 22, from Ohio, has performed Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's hit 'WAP' in American Sign Language (ASL Hit: The YouTube star, who learned ASL in high school, has more than 527,000 subscribers to her channel, The Daily Sign, where she posts footage of herself signing to popular music Considering that Ketterer has to sign 'wet a** p***y' multiple times in the chorus alone, it should come as no surprise that the performance is far...
    Several weeks ago, Netflix began promoting a new film from French director Maimouna Doucoure called “Cuties.” The poster, featuring scantily clad children posing suggestively, caused well-deserved outrage. The Sundance Film Festival — which honored the film with a directing award — provided a synopsis that didn’t do much to quell the anger. According to Sundance, “Cuties” tells the story of an 11-year-old girl named Amy who, “through an ignited awareness of her burgeoning femininity, propels the group to enthusiastically embrace an increasingly sensual dance routine, sparking the girls’ hope to twerk their way to stardom at a local dance contest.” It is perhaps worth mentioning that Sundance was co-founded by a man who is now in prison for child sexual abuse. The film’s official description from Netflix was only slightly less grotesque-sounding: “Amy, 11, becomes fascinated with a twerking dance crew. Hoping to join them, she starts to explore her femininity, defying her family’s traditions.” After the backlash, Netflix apologized — not for the film itself, but simply for the “inappropriate artwork.” The streaming service also changed the synopsis, getting rid...
    When I first got my quip toothbrush, I was immediately smitten. The low profile, sleek aesthetic that the brand adheres to fits my bathroom (and lifestyle) perfectly. It’s easy to use, to store, to travel with, and it’s an affordable electric toothbrush anyone can use. Now, the brand has upped the ante with their newest smart toothbrush. The Smart Electric Toothbrush from quip has all the features that the original quip has, like timed sonic vibrations (to let you know you're brushing 30 seconds in each quadrant for two minutes total), an easily replaceable battery, and a holder that sticks to basically any flat surface. But with the new smart features, you can connect via Bluetooth to the new quip app. The app lets you track and improve your brushing habits, while earning rewards towards quip gear like a storage case or refillable. You can see how many brush strokes per minute you get, your brushing vigor, and how much time you’re spending on your top and bottom teeth. But what really blew me away is that quip is offering...
    LESS than HALF of American adults said they would get a coronavirus vaccine even if it was approved by the government, a new poll reveals. While 44 percent of those surveyed said they would get vaccinated, nearly a quarter answered a full-stop 'no' and about 32 percent were undecided. 3New data from NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Tracking Poll shows only 42 percent of American adults would get a government-approved COVID-19 vaccine In the latest poll conducted from August 10 to 16, more than 30,000 American adults were selected to share their thoughts on a COVID-19 blocking shot. The shocking responses divided along political, racial, income, and educational lines. A majority of Democrats, seniors, Asians, those making at least $100,000 and those with college degrees all say that they would get a vaccine if it's approved by the government, NBC News reports. For every other demographic group, a majority say either that they aren't sure whether they would get an approved vaccine or that they wouldn't. 3Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci said coronavirus vaccine...
    THE SECOND stimulus package could see Americans receiving even more money than the $1,200 checks - if the bill is passed. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said Democrats and Republicans are working to come to a deal on coronavirus checks before heading into a month-long recess on August 7. 3The stimulus package might be more than expectedCredit: AP:Associated Press The Senate is currently discussing providing additional benefits to residents on top of the stimulus checks. Negotiations between the two parties have slowed to a crawl as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to back down over the amount of unemployment relief on offer. "I think that the number, the $600, is related more to the unemployment rate. If the unemployment goes down, then that number can go down," she told CNN over the weekend. At his weekly Senate Republican leadership press conference, McConnell was asked about Pelosi's refusal to budge on the newly proposed stimulus package. 3McConnell might support the unemployment checksCredit: Alamy Live News "Wherever this thing settles between the president of the United States and his team, who has to sign it...
