    Finland's prime minister burst into international headlines this week when videos of her partying went viral in her home country. But who is Sanna Marin, and how did she find herself in the public eye? Marin was elected to the position of prime minister on Dec. 10, 2019, at 34 years old, making her the youngest person elected as Finland's premier and only the third woman to serve in the position. Before Marin became prime minister, she had been active in Finland's center-left Social Democratic Party since the age of 20, according to CNN. Born in 1985, her parents divorced when she was a child “because of my father’s alcohol problem,” Marin wrote in a 2016 blog post. Her mother then began a relationship with another woman, and Marin and her two mothers lived in a rented apartment where they had an “abundance” of love, according to a translation of the blog provided by the outlet.

    (CNN)With their once-sweeping budget reconciliation package whittled down to two health care measures, Senate Democrats are moving ahead with pushing the legislation through the chamber.Another hurdle, however, remains, and it's not Sen.

    Bonefish off the coast of Florida have tested positive for numerous pharmaceutical drugs, according to a new study. Source: WESH 2 News/Youtube The study was conducted over three years by researchers at the Florida International University and Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of bonefish and tarpon. The researchers found pharmaceutical contaminants in the blood and other tissues of bonefish in Biscayne Bay and the Florida Keys, according to the University’s news release. Since the beginning of the study, they have found an average of seven different pharmaceuticals per bonefish and a horrifying 17 pharmaceuticals in a single fish. The list of medications includes blood pressure medications, antidepressants, prostate treatment medications, antibiotics, and pain relievers. They also believe that many of the fisheries around the area have been exposed, which makes this an even bigger public health issue. “These findings are truly alarming,” said Jennifer Rehage, a coastal and fish ecologist and associate professor at the University. “Pharmaceuticals are an invisible threat, unlike algal blooms or turbid waters. Yet these results tell...
    (CNN)Bonefish off the coast of Florida have tested positive for a cocktail of pharmaceutical drugs, including anti-depressants and blood pressure medications, according to a new study.The three-year study was conducted by researchers at Florida International University and Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT), a nonprofit based in Miami focused on bonefish and tarpon conservation, says a news release from the university. Bonefish are a family of fish found throughout the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and tarpons are found in the Atlantic and Indo-Pacific oceans.Researchers took blood and tissue samples from 93 bonefish in Biscayne Bay and the Florida Keys since 2018, when the study started. They found each bonefish had an average of seven pharmaceuticals present, including blood pressure medications, antidepressants, prostate treatment medications, antibiotics and pain relievers, according to the release.

    If you come down with the coronavirus and are at high risk, how can you get access to anti-COVID drugs? The medications are becoming increasingly available, and there is no longer a shortage of the drugs in most locations, California health officials say. Here’s what you should know.‘Test-to-treat’ sites It’s important to know your coronavirus test status early in the infection and seek drugs promptly. For those who have a regular health provider, you can ask for a prescription. The U.S. government also has set up “test-to-treat” sites, which are meant to allow people to get tested and free anti-COVID pills at the same location, such as a pharmacy or clinic, as long as staff can either conduct a coronavirus test or evaluate an at-home test result and have on-site healthcare providers who can assess the patient. A list of sites offering test-to-treat services in L.A. County can be found at ph.lacounty.gov/covidmedicines or by calling the county Department of Public Health at (833) 540-0473 between 8 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. seven days a week.

    The 15-year-old figure skater at the heart of a doping row at the Winter Olympics had three different substances in her system at the time she failed a drugs test last December, a bombshell report has claimed.   In addition to testing positive for the banned angina drug trimetazidine, the New York Times report said the Stockholm laboratory that analysed Kamila Valieva's sample also found evidence of two other heart medications that are not on the banned list: hypoxen and L-Carnitine. The New York Times cited documents filed in Valieva's recent arbitration hearing and confirmed by someone who took part in the hearing. 'It's a trifecta of substances - two of which are allowed, and one that is not allowed,' United States Anti-Doping Agency Chief Executive Officer Travis Tygart said in the report. Tygart added that the benefits of such a combination 'seem to be aimed at increasing endurance, reducing fatigue and promoting greater efficiency in using oxygen.' Sportsmail have reached out to the Russian Olympic Committee seeking comment. More to follow.     
    After the great fall there was a little stumble and after the stumble came the tears of a child and the fury of her rivals. Perhaps that’s how it’s all going to be from now on for Kamila Valieva, a Russian prodigy who dropped from a cloud a week ago and has been lost in fog ever since. She will keep on winning for as long as the courts allow her, and who knows when or if that doping sanction will arrive. But for now it looks distinctly likely that she will soon add the individual figure skating title to the team crown, if only for a while.

    For Russian teenager Kamila Valieva, it took less than 30 seconds to make history at Capital Indoor Stadium in Beijing last week when she became the first female figure skater to successfully land a ‘quad’ at an Olympic Games.  Just 17 seconds later, she did it again. Propelling skywards and spinning, she once more completed four mid-air rotations before landing on one leg and whizzing gracefully across the ice to the tune of Ravel’s Bolero.  The fiendishly difficult jump is regarded as a sort of Holy Grail in the world of women’s figure skating, and Valieva’s flawless execution not only cemented Russia’s victory in the prestigious team event, but also the elfin 15-year-old’s status as a global sensation.  Nicknamed Miss Perfect, Valieva was virtually unknown outside the inner circle of her sport before debuting on the adult circuit four months ago. But she has since gained considerable celebrity — and fast.  An Instagram account, on which she has occasionally chronicled her training regime and the daily life of her pet Pomeranian dog, Leva, now boasts more than 545,000 followers.  'Today,...
    The Russian skating phenomenon in the eye of a major doping scandal, Kamila Valieva, will find out on Monday if she can continue competing at the Winter Olympics. On a day when the International Olympic Committee faced calls from within to impose a total Games ban on Russia after its latest drugs woes, it was confirmed the Court of Arbitration for Sport will meet on Sunday to discuss the case of 15-year-old Valieva. It emerged this week that she tested positive last Christmas for the banned substance trimetazidine - a violation that only came to light the day after she was the star performer as Russia won gold in the team discipline on Monday.

    The contentious-administrative court number 1 of Pontevedra considers it “irrelevant” to analyze a driver’s hair to show whether he has used drugs, understanding that only saliva tests and blood tests should be valid. It is the first sentence that deals in depth the reliability of the hair test in determining drug use in drivers. The Pontevedra court has confirmed the fine of 1,000 euros and the loss of six card points imposed on a driver who, in December 2018, was intercepted by Traffic while driving under the influence of drugs on the AP-9 highway. The magistrate rejects the appeal presented by the driver, who alleged that he had not used drugs and provided a hair analysis test performed at the University of Santiago that had tested negative for drug use in the last five months. Based on the statements of three specialists, the judge concludes that the hair test is used to check if a person is a habitual drug user, “but it does not allow to verify a punctual consumption, in an isolated and determined day, if the...
    TWO of the Queen’s senior guardsmen are being kicked out of the Army after testing positive for cocaine. The Coldstream Guards sergeants were caught in a targeted drugs test and given their marching orders by commanding officer Lt Col David Marsham, a viscount pal of Prince William. 2Sgt Carl Mortimer, a decorated veteran of the war in Afghanistan, was named as one of the men to fail a drugs test One of the men was named as Sgt Carl Mortimer, a decorated veteran of the war in Afghanistan. The second soldier was a Lance Sergeant, whose rank is the equivalent of corporal in other regiments. A source said: “These are the guys who are supposed to set an example to the junior ranks.” The incident is the latest scandal to rock the regiment, founded in 1650 and said to be the oldest in continuous service in the British Army. Last month, two of its soldiers were arrested by the Flying Squad on suspicion of stealing ammunition. Both Sgt Mortimer and his colleague were responsible for guarding the Queen at Buckingham...
    A DRINK-driver was caught going the wrong way down a dual carriageway at 10mph. Sax Foster, 29, could have a caused a “catastrophic” accident if he had not been stopped by cops within seconds of joining the slip road, a court heard. 1Police stopped Sax Foster as he went down the slip from the A379 near Kennford at just 10 mph Police said Foster had slurred speech and the car stank of cannabis. He was twice the alcohol limit and refused to give a blood or urine test for drugs. Foster, who had a passenger, was aggressive and uncooperative after being stopped on the A38 near Kennford, Devon, near midnight on December 13. He spat at an officer during the breath test back at the police station. The spittle missed the cop but hit his boot and he was concerned over the risk of Covid. Judge Peter Johnson told Foster at Exeter crown court: “You were heavily under the influence of alcohol and no doubt drugs. “It was late at night and the weather was dreadful with heavy rain. Most...
    Mike Tyson has revealed he used to use a fake penis in order to avoid failing drug tests during his heavyweight boxing career, relying on urine from family members to help him deliver clean samples. Tyson has previously admitted to taking recreational drugs throughout his career, with the former world champions admitting to using marijuana and cocaine while at the top of boxing in his 2013 book Undisputed Truth.  With top boxers under regular anti-doping checks, Tyson devised a plan to avoid a positive result by using a 'whizzinator' to deliver his samples.

    THERE is one sure-fire method to judge how immoral or pure you or a friend are - by taking the Rice Purity Test. During periods of lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic, people have been sharing and quote tweeting each other with their ‘purity score’, showing how many immoral, or even unspeakable acts they’ve done. 2The Rice Purity Tests is a self-graded survey that assesses a person's participation in issues such as sex, drugs and crime What is the rice purity test? It was actually started as a survey of a hundred questions at Rice University, Huston, Texas. The purpose of this was to gauge how the experience of university life was shaping individual life and whether they had made progress during their time spent in a university environment. Alternatively, it was a way for university seniors in collaboration with the Pathetic Losers club to see how innocent the incoming influx of students was. It is a self-graded survey that assesses the participants' supposed degree of innocence in matters such as sex, drugs, deceit, and other activities assumed to be...
    Shortly after the publication of a bombshell New York Times article reporting that President Donald Trump has paid little to nothing in income taxes for years, he held a press conference Sunday and used the opportunity to attack his Democratic opponent Joe Biden, claiming that “plenty of people” on the internet have said Biden is “on performance-enhancing drugs” and should have to take a drug test before the presidential debates. “Do you really believe Joe Biden will be on any type of performance-enhancing drug ahead of the debates or are you just joking?” a reporter asked Trump, noting he had made this claim “numerous times.” “No, no, I’m not joking,” replied Trump. “I’m willing to take a drug test. I think he should, too,” adding that Biden has “very uneven” debate performances against “Pocahontas and Harris, who treated him so badly,” meaning Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), where he was “out of it,” and then did “okay, not terrible but okay” against “crazy” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). “I said, how did he go from there, with those horrible performances, to...
    Disgraced heavyweight boxer Jarrell Miller has claimed his most recent failed drugs test is down to a sexual performance pill he'd been using. The undefeated American had been given another chance after serving a six-month suspension under the WBA for failing multiple drugs tests ahead of his world title showdown with Anthony Joshua last year, only for his comeback fight against Jerry Forrest in July to be cancelled due to another positive test for a banned substance.  It was Miller's fourth failed test in 12 months and several figureheads in boxing called for a lifetime ban to be issued after his license was temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC). The substance in question was GW501516 - often used illegally to aid endurance and boost aerobic power - which Miller had also tested positive for along with EPO and Human Growth Hormone (HGH) ahead of his scheduled fight with Joshua in 2019. Jarrell Miller has claimed his latest failed drug test is down to a sexual performance pill he took Miller said he ingested a Blank Ant King...
    During a campaign rally on Saturday night, President Donald Trump alleged that his general election opponent, Democrat Joe Biden, is taking performance-enhancing drugs, Mediaite reported. Addressing a crowd of supporters, Trump claimed that the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee is being drugged before public appearances. “I got a debate coming up with this guy,” he began. “You never know. They gave him a big fat shot in the a**… and for two hours, he is better than ever before. Problem is, what happens after that?” Trump then argued that both him and Biden should be tested for performance-enhancing drugs before taking the stage. “We’re going to ask for a drug test. We are. I’d like to have a drug test. Both of us, I’ll take it, he’ll take it,” he said, prompting cheers from the crowd. Trump has previously accused Biden of taking mind-enhancing substances. In an August interview with The Washington Examiner, Trump said that Biden performed badly in the first few Democratic primary debates, but appeared far more alert and coherent during his one-on-one debate versus Sen. Bernie Sanders...
    President Donald Trump suggested Joe Biden might take debate-enhancing drugs, and said he would like a drug test administered prior to their upcoming presidential debates. “I got a debate coming up with this guy,” Trump told the crowd. “You never know. They gave him a big fat shot in the ass… and for two hours, he is better than ever before. Problem is, what happens after that?” Trump added, “We’re going to ask for a drug test, we are.

    Almost one in 20 US workers tested positive for drugs in 2019, marking the highest proportion of drug use among the nation's workforce in 16 years, according to research.  Stark new data from drug testing lab Quest Diagnostics reveals a worrying trend in the drug habits of the American workforce, with 4.5 percent of workers found to have drugs in their system last year. The spike in positive results was driven by a surge in marijuana use, while there are some signs of progress in America's battle against opioids with positive tests down for another year.   Fears are mounting that the worst is yet to come as experts warn the coronavirus pandemic has piled on the stress for the nation's workers and left recovering addicts isolated without their much-needed support networks.

    The NBA reportedly won’t test players for recreational drugs when games start July 31. According to Shams Charania, recreational drugs won’t be tested for by the league after a deal reached between the league and players’ union. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Performance enhancing drugs will still be tested for when games start back up during the coronavirus pandemic. Sources: The NBA and NBPA have agreed to conduct performance-enhancing drug testing during resumed 2019-20 season in Orlando — but tests for recreational drugs will remain suspended. — Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 8, 2020 This is a great decision by the NBA. As I’ve said forever, who the hell cares if NBA players are smoking weed? Who cares if any pro athlete in any league is smoking weed? If they want to dabble with marijuana, then let them. There are much bigger issues to be focused on than testing adult men for whether or not they’ve consumed marijuana products or smoked up. After all, these players have had to find ways to cope...
