    About 35 years ago, if a shortstop drove in 99 runs and clocked 25 homers, they’d be tried as a witch. That’s exactly what Francisco Lindor has done this season though, and with 11 games to spare, the switch-hitting straw that stirs the Mets’ drink will finish the season with even prettier numbers. In 1987, the average MLB shortstop slashed .258/.315/.365 (.680 OPS) with an 80 wRC+, meaning as a collective, shortstops were 20% worse than the league’s average hitter. Entering Friday’s series opener in Oakland, Lindor is flexing a .271/.344/.454 slash line (.798 OPS) and 130 wRC+. With four more RBI, he will break Carlos Guillen’s single-season record for runs driven in by a switch-hitting shortstop. The evolution of the modern, slugging shortstop is one of many changes that have swept through the games in recent years, and Lindor is perhaps the most prime example of how a guy who hits like a corner outfielder but fields like a middle infielder is the most valuable type of player a team can have. His partner in the cleanup spot, meanwhile,...

    BURGERS are the go-to menu choice for one in five Americans, according to new research. In a poll of 2,000 self-identified hamburger enthusiasts, 58 percent admitted to frequently ordering burgers when dining out.  2A new study has revealed that most Americans love a good burgerCredit: Getty In fact, the average respondent eats about five burgers per month, with boomers eating the least at about three to four. This means the average respondent eats about 60 burgers per year. Respondents also seemed to care more about the quality of the patty (33 percent) than what type of meat or plant-based ingredients it’s made from (26 percent). While beef patties appealed to the largest number of respondents (52 percent), alternative options like chicken (45 percent) and even veggie (35 percent) weren’t far behind.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) –  Mental Health Awareness Month kicks off this weekend, and between the pandemic and the challenges of school and life, there is a mental health crisis among children in the U.S. Doctors said it is something parents need to discuss with their kids. READ MORE: Gabby Petito’s Family Claims Brian Laundrie's Parents Knew Their Son Had Killed HerA survey from Nationwide Children’s On Our Sleeves program shows most parents (93%) know it’s important to talk to children about mental health.

    After the meeting, reporters confronted Salazar and pointed out that McCarthy had lied to the press. But she shot back that the media was failing its duty by looking for "headlines" instead of reporting on issues that matter to Americans. "I did this job for 35 years and I loved being a journalist, but you know, let me share something with you, we have a problem in this country with the news media," Salazar told reporters.

    Appalled human rights defenders condemned Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Wednesday after the first bus of migrants he sent from the U.S.-Mexico border to the nation's capital arrived outside an office building that houses Fox News, which quickly provided glowing coverage of the far-right official's latest effort to demonize immigrants. "Of course Greg Abbott ordered the bus with migrants on it to show up in front of Fox News headquarters here in D.C.," Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, senior policy counsel at the American Immigration Council, wrote on social media. "It's an incredibly dehumanizing and cynical stunt." "This was all coordinated closely with Fox News, which had an article up immediately," Reichlin-Melnick continued. "One man said he was heading to Florida—[a] sign that Abbott's 'voluntary' bus trips were probably not." Last week, Abbott's vow to transport migrants to Washington, D.C. as a show of opposition to President Joe Biden's phase-out of Title 42—a pubic health order used by the Trump and Biden administrations to swiftly expel asylum-seekers from the U.S. more than 1.7 million times during a two-year period—was widely denounced. "Neither...
    EVANS, Colo. (CBS4) Chelsea Ramirez and her husband Ignacio, known best as ‘Nacho’ have a love story, decades in the making. (credit: Chelsea Ramirez) “We met back when we were 16,” she said. They married years later, building a home filled with memories, love and family. “Our 4th and final child was born June 30 about six weeks prior to Nacho’s death,” she said. Ramirez says her husband was having severe back pain and made plans to see a specialist. But that appointment was weeks out and looking for relief, he decided to try anything. “He reached out to this girl, and she delivered,” she said. Ana Maria Villa, Nacho’s sister, says it was someone he knew. “A really long time, he trusted her, they had mutual friends and went to school… a rapport that they built over the years,” she said. Nacho thought he was taking oxycodone for the pain. “Within minutes after taking that pill, after having that conversation, he was gone,” Ramirez said.

    Sunday on New York WABC 770 AM radio’s “The Cats Roundtable,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) reacted to Disney CEO Bob Chapek’s support of transgender instruction for children from kindergarten through third grade after the Florida legislature passed the Parental Rights in Education bill. Blackburn told host John Catsimatidis that parents take their children to Disney World in Florida for fun rather than “have their kids go through some kind of nightmare.” She lamented that Disney also took out its famous greeting of “Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls.” “You know, one of the things that we have looked at with Disney World is I say people go there to walk the ‘yellow brick road and have a day in fantasy land. They’re not going there to walk on eggshells. They’re not going there to have their kids go through some kind of nightmare,” Blackburn declared. “And this business of no longer saying ‘Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls’ in their greetings — I think that is something that you have to look at and say this is how the woke-left extremists...

    CNN medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen said Tuesday on CNN’s “Inside Politics” that parents who have made the decision to vaccinate themselves should also “vaccinate their children.” Wen said, “We have failed our children. Throughout this entire pandemic, we have not prioritized our kids, and now we’re seeing the effect. We’re seeing the mental health impact as you mentioned, but we’re also seeing the impact on nutrition and physical activity. These studies are also showing that school lockdowns have an impact on increasing childhood obesity which also has implications for diabetes and heart disease for these kids growing later on in life as well.” Anchor John King said, “Sixty percent of the 16 to 17-year-olds are vaccinated, a little more than half 12 to 15. What do you think explains the lagging? It’s only 18%, a little more than that of children aged 5 to 11 who are eligible and not vaccinated. Why is that number still below 20%?” Wen said, “There’s been a fallacy that somehow children don’t get very ill from COVID-19, which we know is just not true. Yes,...
    Twins Emily and Christina Taylor had the same group of friends, the same thoughts and instincts and were each other's biggest fans from day one. Emily was by her sister's side when she began to feel unwell out of the blue and booked in for some routine tests in 2018, by her side when she was hospitalised, when doctors found a tumour and when she died just over a year after their nightmare began.  She was there when Christina found out she had what is commonly referred to as an 'old man's disease', when the faint idea that 30-year-old's can't die from bowel cancer evaporated before their eyes. 'Going through something like cancer is tough on any family member, but being a twin it's just unimaginable,' Emily, now 32 and living in Newcastle, told Daily Mail Australia. 'Being a twin is a different bond, that really only twins can understand. It's those gut feelings you get or those thoughts in your head and you just know what each other are doing, thinking or feeling.'  'Going through something like cancer is...

    (CNN)A 12-year-old Boy Scout in Hawaii takes the organization's motto "be prepared" very seriously and used his knowledge to help rescue a couple and their injured dog on a trail. David King was on the way back from a 15-mile hike near his home in Kailua with his mom, Christine, trying to earn his Hiking merit badge when they came across a couple, lost on the trail and trying to aid their dog Smokey, in August. "We encountered them with about two to three miles left in the hike," David told CNN. "It wasn't obvious (that something was wrong), but then the dog was on the ground, and we asked if they needed anything and they said yes." The couple had run out of water and their phones were dead, plus Smokey's paws had been cut up from the trail and he couldn't walk, David said. The couple tried to carry him out but the blue nose pit bull weighed almost 100 pounds. Hawaiis famous Haiku Stairs will likely be removedChristine said the couple was in danger of being stuck...

    Two Los Angeles couples experienced an IVF nightmare in which the mothers each gave birth to the other's biological baby after a fertility lab mixed up their embryos. Musician Alexander Cardinale, 41, and his wife Daphna, 43, spent months raising another couple's child before their suspicions that something was wrong grew so great that they performed a DNA test. That's how they discovered that their little girl was not, in fact, biologically theirs — and the couple she did belong to had been raising their biological daughter as well. The parents made the harrowing decision to swap babies when they were four months old, and now that Cardinales are suing their IVF clinic for medical malpractice, negligence, and fraud. 'This is something that's just changed who we are,' Daphna, 43 told People this week. 'It's still a daily struggle and will continue to be.'

    Former D.C. Metropolitan Police and Philadelphia police chief Charles Ramsey slammed the president of Chicago’s largest police union for directing members to disobey the city’s Covid-19 vaccination policy. He also took to task officers who have threatened to walk off the job over the order. The policy does not require employees to be vaccinated. Rather, city employees can choose between the vaccine and being tested twice a week. The policy, which goes into effect today, also requires employees to enter their vaccination status in an online portal. John Catanzara, the head of the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police, has directed members to ignore the city’s directive. “It is an improper order. It’s illegal,” he said. “I don’t care if it’s Superintendent [David] Brown. If somebody orders you to go into the portal, refuse that order.” City employees who fail to comply will be designated as being on non-disciplinary non-paid status. Ramsey, a 30-year veteran of the Chicago PD himself, called the Catanzara’s actions “incredibly unfortunate” on CNN Friday. “Police officers have an obligation much higher than this political nonsense that seems...
    "Hopefully there's a lot of people out there that are stronger than me and keep fighting and stand for what they believe, and hopefully it works out for them," he said. Wiggins also explained that he previously contracted COVID-19 and said that the respiratory infection "wasn't too bad." What else?The forward, who has a history of allergic reactions, said that he has to carry around an EpiPen in case he comes into contact with something that triggers an anaphylactic reaction, and worried that he might have a negative response to the shot. "I know a lot of people get reactions or injuries from getting the vaccination, so I don't know what it's going to do to me in 10 years," he explained. "I feel like I could go on for days about why I didn't want to get it. Most importantly, I don't know what's going to happen or what it's going to do to my body in 10, 20 years. ... But I guess it's something that had to get done." He said that...
    "I don't think you can pressure anybody into doing things, or putting things in their body," he said. But in a follow-up media interview on Tuesday, Beal wanted to clarify his perspective. He assured reporters that he is still considering getting the vaccine and is not locked into an anti-vaccination stance. "I believe what I said, it's my opinion," he said. "[But] one thing I want to get clear is that I'm not sitting up here advocating or campaigning that, 'No, you should not get that vaccine.'" "I'm not sitting up here saying vaccines are bad, I'm not sitting up here saying this vaccine is bad. I'm not sitting up here saying that you shouldn't get it," he continued. "It's a personal decision between every individual [and their families], that's it," Beal argued. "And I have that personal right to keep it to myself." According to CBS Sports, similarly to the NFL, the NBA is not outright requiring its players to get vaccinated but is encouraging such behavior by imposing stricter guidelines for those who refuse the shot.

    Many common names for species of plants, animals and insects, including the gypsy moth and Scott's oriole, have been dubbed 'racist' by scientists who want a change. In July the Entomological Society of America (ESA) removed the term 'gypsy' from the names of a moth and ant due to the fact it is seen as a slur for Romani people.  The association have since launched a public call for alternative common names for the moth Lymantria dispar and ant Aphenogaster araneoides.  Many species were named by early naturalists and explores for the things around them, people making a mark at the time and using terms acceptable to them.  'We can choose language that reflects our shared values,' Jessica Ware, president-elect of ESA told ScienceNews, speaking of the Better Common Names Project. It already prohibits new names that 'perpetuate negative stereotypes' and is asking for public input on which existing names should be changed in the future. The association have since launched a public call for alternative common names for the moth Lymantria dispar (pictured) and ant Aphenogaster araneoides NEW RULES FOR...
    In any creative industry, there are only a handful of people that do something different and out of the ordinary. Hence, there are only a few names that make a turning point within the creative world. Let’s take a look at the visual artist Bolli Blas, who is doing just that. Bolli Blas is a 34-year-old British visual artist born and raised for a short time in Poland. After moving to the UK, Bolli graduated with a master’s degree in accountancy and economics but found her way in life through art. At the very beginning, her art represented visions that had been done before. She believed that as a new artist, recreating works that had already been done was the way forward. Fortunately, her vision turned to her own thoughts and ideas. Bolli Blas wanted to create something new, utopian-inspired, and something that represented all people. The artist created her artistic trademark, which she named Bollis. The work displays wide-eyed characters which closely reflect the windows of the soul and act as a mirror to modern society. Through her paintings,...

    When we talk about safe sex, we usually mean protecting ourselves against STI's or making sure there's enthusiastic consent. But nearly 62 per cent of us have sustained sex related physical injuries, according to a recent poll (Superdrug). Those moans of ecstasy can rapidly turn to an infuriated 'Ouch!' or screams of agony. Accidentally hitting or punching your partner, tripping or falling, sprained ankles, dislocated shoulders…sex can be dangerous! 'Rough sex' was the reason most cited by people admitting to sex injuries but even conservative sex can have dire consequences. The sex positions that most lead to injuries for most people are missionary for men and doggy style for women.  The logical assumption is that the more complicated, athletic style positions are attempted far less, so fewer injuries occur. Tracey Cox shared her top tips for treating sex related physical injuries, as research reveals 62 per cent of us have sustained accidents (file image) Want to avoid injury at all cost? Spend a long time on foreplay, use lots of lube, keep thrusting slow, choose unchallenging positions and be wary...
    Dear Amy: I’ve been into genealogy for over 20 years. I’m the keeper of my father’s side of the family tree. Amy Dickinson  Recently, because of DNA testing, I’ve discovered that my cousins have African ancestry, coming from my aunt’s husband’s line. I’ve done some research and I think I know in what generation this happened. Growing up I remember my mother saying they had Native American ancestry (they have none). So I don’t know if my cousins or my uncle even knew, or if this was the story they’d been told because it was more “acceptable.” How do I ask them about their ancestry without being intrusive?

    American Greatness senior writer Pedro Gonzales said Friday that Republicans need to take control of their own party or Democrats “are going to continue getting everything they want.” WATCH: “They’re going to realize that when they start to feel afraid of their voters,” Gonzales told Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” when asked why the GOP appears to be drifting leftward. “And I think this is not going to change, because you and I can burn the house down every night on TV but it’s not going to change until Republicans feel afraid, feel accountable, in other words, to their own voters.” The journalist said “Republican voters need to stop viewing the party as an ally and start viewing it as an instrument, something to be whipped into shape and not relied upon, because there is no plan but what we make.” (RELATED: House Preps To Pass Two Immigration Bills As Border Crisis Intensifies) Gonzales argued that the Republican Party is failing its voting base who must demand that it reflect their values and policy positions because otherwise the party...
    A $30,000 a year Miami private school has told COVID-19 vaccinated teachers to stay away from students because they 'may transmit something' to them.  Centner Academy co-founder Leila Centner wrote to staff last week telling them: 'Reports have surfaced recently of non-vaccinated people being negatively impacted by interacting with people who have been vaccinated.' Leila, who set up the school with her husband David Centner in 2019, said their decision had been made with 'with a very heavy heart'. Staff were asked to fill out a form on their vaccine intentions, The New York Times reports.   She said those who receive the shot 'may be transmitting something from their bodies' and could harm 'reproductive systems, fertility, and normal growth and development in women and children.'  Centner added: 'Even among our own population, we have at least three women with menstrual cycles impacted after having spent time with a vaccinated person.'  Since the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, conspiracy theorists have made baseless claims that the crisis was orchestrated by various people and entities.  The CDC says COVID-19 vaccines are safe and...

CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "The vast majority of our players and staff opted for the vaccine and continue to follow the protocols around mask wearing, and that’s something we’ll continue to encourage and support. But in the end, people are free to make their own choices and decisions," Antonetti said. Karinchak shared a post on his Instagram Stories on April 6, writing "NO FREEDOM UNLESS YOU GET A VACCINE." He also used a quote from Nazi Hermann Goering while he testified before the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg in 1946.

    A 23-year-old has revealed that she has the back of someone in their fifties — and her doctor believes her spinal disc degeneration may be the result of her vaping.  Megan McTigue, who is known as @meg_mctigue on TikTok, warned about the dangers of vaping nicotine in a now-viral video that she posted earlier this month after getting her alarming MRI results.

    It took Indie and Joel Akerblom eight months to convert their camper van. Courtesy of Indie & Joel Akerblom Indie and Joel Akerblom converted a camper van during the pandemic and ran into lots of issues. They struggled with electrical and insulation, and then they ran out of money.  The couple said, "We fought and we cried so much over this van," but they think it was worth it. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Indie and Joel Akerblom traveled all over the world full-time for several years, but when the coronavirus pandemic started, they wanted to do something different.  In early 2020, they flew home to Sweden and got to work on converting a camper van — something they've been dreaming about for years. The couple told Insider that van life was a way to have something permanent without settling down in one location.  When they started converting their Mercedes-Benz Sprinter during the pandemic, they figured they could do the project themselves, but they quickly realized they were in over their heads and it wasn't as...
    AS unwanted gifts go, Ricky Gervais’s corpse definitely beats the novelty socks grandma got you for Christmas. The straight-talking comedian recently shocked fans by saying he wanted to be fed to the lions at London Zoo after his death in order to “give something back” to the animal kingdom. 4Ricky offered up his body to the lions at London Zoo when he diesCredit: PA:Press Association But sadly, Ricky’s generous donation has been refused by the 193-year-old animal park – because they say he wouldn’t make a particularly appetising meal. Instead, conservation charity ZSL, which runs both London and Whipsnade Zoos, has urged him to gift some of his £102 million fortune after the attractions were left “fighting for survival” due to three forced closures amid the ongoing Covid crisis. Kathryn England, Chief Operating Officer of ZSL London Zoo said: “I suspect Ricky may be a bit gristly for our lions. “But we are struggling financially because of lockdown so if anyone wants to ‘give something back’ we welcome donations that will help us keep our lions fed on a more...
    The Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff on the campaign trail together. If you check out the issues section of Georgia Republican Kelly Loeffler’s Senate campaign website, you’ll find the thinnest of statements on a variety of subjects ranging from immigration to trade. But not a word about the climate crisis. Republican Sen. David Perdue’s campaign website provides more detail about his views and actions on issues, but there, too, not a word about the climate crisis despite the impacts it’s already having on Georgia. Perhaps that’s because when Perdue does talk about climate, everybody gets to see scientific illiteracy in action.  Meanwhile, both their foes in the Jan. 5 election runoff—Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff respectively—have put dealing with climate among their highest priorities. Which is a key reason the League of Conservation Voters and Climate Hawks have endorsed Warnock and Ossoff. Said Brionté McCorkle, director of the Georgia Conservation Voters, ”We need leaders in the Senate like Ossoff and Rev. Warnock who put people over polluters and prioritize climate justice, clean energy, and clean water. [...] Climate change is an...

    GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – At times, seemingly small gestures can be magnified when viewed through the prism of perspective. Such was the situation in Grand Prairie when Kathy Adler put out a call for secondhand suitcases. “My daughter is a foster parent,” said Adler, “and she kept seeing that they were bringing their clothes in a trash bag… and it just doesn’t feel right for a child to have their belongings in a trash bag! It’s just not right.” No question, Adler was bothered. “There’s something about a trash bag… you look at it and you think, that’s trash. Well, who owns it? Then they’re trash, and you make this association and it’s just not acceptable. It just makes me sick… the one thought of a heart looking at that trash bag,” she said. So, Adler decided to do more than be bothered. She got busy working to do something about it, putting out a call on the neighborhood social media app NextDoor. The response from her neighbors has left her stunned. “My phone is blowing up, my text,...

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — The vibe is the same. The jokes. The freewheeling banter. In that way, the daily meetings for the Pittsburgh Steelers’ offensive line haven’t changed a bit even with the group being forced to get together over Zoom instead of in the same room, a move necessitated by the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols. Still, there is something offensive line coach Shaun Sarrett admits is lacking: the comfort in knowing he has each player’s undivided attention as he tries to get a point across. “When I am explaining something, I can’t look at the guy in the eyes,” Sarrett said Wednesday. “That’s the big thing. That’s just something we have to adapt to as coaches.” In many ways, the NFL’s first “virtual” offseason last spring prepared the Steelers for what amounts to a lockdown of sorts. Pittsburgh entered the league’s “intensive” protocol last week when Baltimore defensive back Marlon Humphrey received a positive test result hours after the Steelers had edged the Ravens on Nov. 1. They will remain in the protocol this week after tight end Vance...
    CHRISTEN PRESS and Tobin Heath have finally reacted to the bombshell news that their shirts outsold EVERY male star at Manchester United. Shirts for the American superstars were so popular in the first three days of their release, that they even surpassed the likes of Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford. 1Shirts for Christen Press (left) and Tobin Heath (right) were the club’s most popular of any player, male or femaleCredit: Getty Images - Getty The American superstars arrived at the Red Devils last month, in a major coup for the Women's Super League.

    March and April weren’t great months for Chad Moore. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, all of Colorado’s restaurants and bars were ordered to close their doors on St. Patrick’s Day, with in-house service forbidden and only to-go and delivery allowed. That was particularly tough on Moore and Jordan Fink, who own Woods Boss Brewing. Not only had they built their three-year-old brewery’s reputation on community get-togethers and live events in a gorgeous taproom, but their only means of selling beer to go was with Crowlers, 32-ounce aluminum vessels that are labor-intensive to fill. With no on-site customers and no way to get their beer out the door in large-enough quantities to make ends meet, the public-health crisis looked like it could put them out of business. But in May the clouds cleared a bit. The brewery began working with a mobile canning company to package its best-selling beers, which it could then sell in greater quantities, not just from the taproom, but to liquor stores, which had remained open. Then in June, the brewery — which was now allowed to...
    Jill Duggar had admitted that she's 'not on the best terms' with her whole family these days, after previously revealing that they're 'not always' supportive of her decisions. The 29-year-old former reality TV star has been sharing some surprisingly candid details of her life in a series of YouTube Q&As with her husband Derick Dillard, 31 — and in a new one uploaded today, Jill opened up more about strained relationships with members of her family.  'There's been some distancing there,' she said. 'We’re not on the best terms with some of my family. We’ve had some disagreements and stuff, but we’re working towards healing, definitely, and restoration, but we’re having to kind of just take some time and heal.' Distance: Jill Duggar had admitted that she's 'not on the best terms' with her whole family these days Since Jill and Derick stopped appearing on TLC's Counting On — and Jill has started the process of departing from some of her family's stricter beliefs — things have become strained between the Dillards and some of Jill's family, including her...
    After six long months of taping his show from his attic and then his in-laws’ house, Seth Meyers  finally returned to his 30 Rock studio Tuesday night to take “A Closer Look” at the damning report about President Donald Trump and the U.S. military.  The Late Night host caught up on everything he missed during a two-week hiatus at the end of the summer before arriving at Trump’s “most brazen and infuriating act of reality distortion” this week when he “tried to con people into thinking he’s an anti-war president.”  Meyers argued the Atlantic report that Trump called American soldiers “losers” and “suckers” was not only confirmed by multiple news outlets but also by “common sense.” He added, “I mean, it sounds exactly like something Trump would say. He probably thinks anyone who dies is a sucker.”  Nor did the host buy Trump’s attempt to rebrand himself as an “anti-war activist,” calling it an “especially infuriating lie coming from a guy who has repeatedly touted billions in arms sales to a brutal regime in Saudi Arabia, vetoed a bill...
    The Alvin Kamara contract situation in New Orleans appears to have escalated quickly. On the heels of the 25-year-old missing multiple practices over the past week, a string of unexcused absences reportedly tied to his entering a contract year, ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Tuesday reported that the Saints are “open to trading” Kamara should an offer present itself. Kamara is scheduled to earn just $2.133 million in 2020, the fourth and final year of his rookie contract after New Orleans selected him in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft. In terms of cash, that 2020 salary places him in a tie for 30th among NFL running backs. IYER: Best fits for Leonard Fournette after release from Jaguars Fellow top NFL running backs Christian McCaffrey, Ezekiel Elliott and Derrick Henry, for example, each will earn north of $15 million in 2020 on recently extended contracts. Kamara’s recent absences from Saints practices have come as a surprise given his previously lax attitude toward his contract situation. “It’ll happen when it happens,” Kamara said when New Orleans’ training camp opened last...
    Doctors are better at diagnosing cancer if they trust their ‘gut feeling’ rather than relying on official symptoms, a study shows. Patients referred to hospital with suspected cancer after seeing a doctor were four times more likely to have the disease if their GP had acted on an instinct that something was wrong. The Oxford University research found that the intuition of doctors, who pick up cues from observing a patient, was a better predictor than specific symptoms used in guidelines. The study pooled data from 12 previous European studies covering 60,000 patients. Overall, when doctors referred a patient to a cancer specialist based on a ‘gut feeling’, the patient was more than four times as likely to be diagnosed with the disease than when no gut feeling was recorded. Doctors are better at diagnosing cancer if they trust their ‘gut feeling’ rather than relying on official symptoms, a study shows (stock image) This association increased the more experienced a GP was and the better they knew the patient. The study said gut feelings could be described as an...
    Black Lives Matter protesters appeared to march through a suburban Seattle neighborhood demanding white residents give up their homes, claiming white residents gentrified the area, according to a video shared on Twitter.
