    Yuliia “Taira” Paievska is a Ukrainian medic who spent the initial part of the war in her home country in the besieged city of Mariupol before she was captured and held as a prisoner of war for months. During the beginning of the war, she recorded 256 gigabytes of videos via a body camera that showed her team's efforts in saving lives. Paievska then provided the clips to Associated Press journalists, who were the last international reporters in the city of Mariupol, one of whom sneaked the video out in a tampon, according to a report from the outlet back in May. She was captured by Russian forces a day after giving the footage to the journalists and was held for three months.

    By Hanna Arihova | Associated Press KHARKIV, Ukraine — For 22 days, Serhiy Chornobryvets barely slept and rarely took off his red paramedic uniform. Day and night, he raced around his hometown of Mariupol, rescuing those wounded by the Russian bombs and shells that pummeled the southern Ukrainian city. When he finally escaped Mariupol — whose residents endured some of the worst suffering of the war during a nearly three-month siege — he still did not rest. Instead, he joined an organization that sends medics to the front lines in eastern Ukraine, where the fighting is currently concentrated. “Me before Mariupol and me after what happened: It’s two different people,” the skinny, fresh-faced 24-year-old said during a recent interview with The Associated Press in Kharkiv, another city that has endured intense bombardment. “If I had not survived Mariupol, I would not have gone to work as a paramedic now. I wouldn’t have had enough courage,” explained Chornobryvets, who is simply called “Mariupol” on the battlefield and now wears a patch that bears the symbol of the port city, a yellow...

    Pennsylvania Republican Senate hopeful Dr. Mehmet Oz went after his Democratic rival John Fetterman on Monday, claiming the progressive populist has yet to agree to a single debate ahead of November's midterm elections. Oz's campaign released a statement claiming he himself has agreed to five different face-off opportunities against Fetterman, who only recently returned to the campaign trail in-person after suffering a stroke in May. 'Doctor Oz has agreed to five debates. John Fetterman has agreed to zero debates,' Oz communications director Brittany Yanick said. 'If John is too sick to debate and is concerned he can not stand in front of cameras for more than 10 minutes, then he should just say so. We’re sure voters would understand and so would we.' She added, 'Otherwise, he should pick some of the many debates Doctor Oz has agreed to or explain why he won’t agree to debate on KDKA on September 6th.' In an earlier statement, Oz's campaign lists debates he accepted including that date, another on September 9, a Nexstar match in early October and two more from FOX 29...

    A Ukrainian medic who was tortured and held captive by Russian forces for three months says a phone call from Prince Harry after her release inspired her to 'continue fighting' for her country. Volunteer paramedic Yulia Paievska, 53, was kidnapped by Russian soldiers in March while she was heading to treat injured members of public after a bomb attack on a theatre in Mariupol. She described being interrogated for three months and being told lies that Ukraine had been eradicated in the invasion, The Telegraph reports. Ms Paievska, a member of Ukraine's team for the Invictus Games, received a phone call from the Duke of Sussex one week after she was released by her captors.

    A woman who was sexually-assaulted by a New York neurologist during treatment told of her relief after he was convicted of sex attacks against six women. Hillary Tullin spoke out after Ricarco Cruciani, 68, was convicted of 12 attacks on Friday, which included sexual assaults and rapes. He faces life behind bars. Tullin told the New York Times she was 'beyond happy' and added: 'To finally be vindicated, to finally know that this man will never hurt another person, to finally know that I might be able to sleep at night — it’s a great sense of relief.'  Tullin, a former ABC producer who was attacked after seeking treatment for chronic pain, added: 'As much as I’ve gone through trauma counseling and therapy. 'I don’t think it was until I got this verdict that I could finally say, I can start healing. I can start trying to rebuild my life again.' She spoke after jurors agreed that Cruciani got his patients hooked on powerful opioids and sexually assaulted them at their most vulnerable.  The attacks that he faced trial over...
    DONETSK REGION (AP) — All over the Donetsk region, close to the front lines of Russia’s war in Ukraine, Nataliia Voronkova turns up at Ukrainian field positions and hospitals wearing high heels. A colleague bought her running shoes, but Voronkova gave them away. A helmet and a protective vest aren’t part of her uniform, either, as she distributes first-aid kits and other equipment to Ukrainian soldiers and paramedics. She is a civilian, the founder of a medical non-profit, and looking like one is something no one can take from her, even in a combat zone. “I am myself, and I will never give up my heels for anything,” Voronkova said of the red strappy sandals, beige pumps and other elegant footwear she typically pairs with full skirts and midi dresses as she makes her dangerous rounds. The former adviser to the Ukrainian Defense Ministry with graduate degrees in banking and finance is a familiar sight to officers and troops in eastern Ukraine. For eight years after Moscow seized Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula in 2014, Voronkova dedicated her life...

    By Lori Hinnant and Vasilisa Stepanko | Associated Press KYIV, Ukraine — The captive Ukrainian medic’s eyeglasses had long since been taken away, and the face of the Russian man walking past her was a blur. Yuliia Paievska knew only that her life was being traded for his, and that she was leaving behind 21 women in a tiny three- by six-meter (10- by 20-foot) prison cell they had shared for what felt like an eternity. Her joy and relief was tempered by the sense that she was abandoning them to an uncertain fate. Before she was captured, Paievska, better known throughout Ukraine as Taira, had recorded more than 256 gigabytes of harrowing bodycam footage showing her team’s efforts to save the wounded in the besieged city of Mariupol. She got the footage to Associated Press journalists, the last international team in Mariupol, on a tiny data card. The journalists fled the city on March 15 with the card embedded inside a tampon, carrying it through 15 Russian checkpoints. The next day, Taira was taken by pro-Russia forces. Three months...
    A female soldier’s rant about Roe v. Wade is sweeping the internet as she struggles with serving a country that treats women as “second class citizens.” The video, uploaded by @racalwheezy on TikTok, features the unidentified soldier saying, “I just extended my contract to continue serving this country a week ago. How am I supposed to swear to support and defend the constitution and a country that treats its women like second class citizens?” “How am I supposed to do that? How am I supposed to do that with pride? How am I supposed to do that with love and honor?” she asked. “How am I supposed to wake up every day and put on a frickin’ uniform that says United States Army, when the United States doesn’t even give a rat’s ass about me, it gives more of a rat’s ass about the guns they’re allowed to buy that kill the children that I’m forced to give birth to — think about that!” The soldier began to discuss the effect the decision by SCOTUS will have on service women....

    She questioned whether Supreme Court justices or politicians could "support the troops" if they are in favor of overturning Roe v. Wade and giving states the ability to determine their abortion laws. She claimed the overturning of Roe v. Wade would "greatly lessen the retention of women in the ranks of this military" and "ruin some women's careers." The Army medic asserted that she has "extremely limited access to birth career" and she "can't get an ultrasound without traveling off base." "I signed that contract, so I will serve my country," she continued. "But you bet your ass you're going to hear my voice because I will not stop, I will not rest, and I will not be silent because this is not an attack on reproductive rights. It is an attack on women in this country," she concluded.

    A US Army medic 'enraged' by the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has gone viral over her TikTok blasting national leaders for treating 'women like second-class citizens'. Sgt. Rahasenfratz, in a now-viral rant, questioned how she is supposed to 'defend the Constitution and country' when policy shows it doesn't 'give a rat’s a** about me.' The medic, who just renewed her contract with the Army last month, argued that removing federal abortion protections with have an 'unintended consequence' of lessening the retention rates for female military members who already have 'extremely limited access to birth control' and 'are more likely to experience unplanned pregnancies.' Last month, in the case known as Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, the high court overturned the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling, which guaranteed a woman's right to an abortion.  President Joe Biden on Friday signed an executive order to ease access to abortion services after mounting pressure from fellow Democrats. The president revealed on Sunday he has also asked his administration to consider whether he has authority to declare an abortion-related public health emergency....
    A well-known Ukrainian paramedic who was held prisoner by Russian and separatist forces for three months after being captured in the southeastern city of Mariupol has accused her guards of psychological and physical torture during her time in captivity. Yulia Paievska, 53, widely known in Ukraine by her nickname Taira, has reached folk hero notoriety. She said the abuse started immediately after she was recognized at a checkpoint near Mariupol and taken prisoner, along with her driver, on March 16. “For five days I had no food and practically did not drink,” Paievska told CNN on Tuesday, almost three weeks after she was released in a prisoner exchange on June 17. The abuse, including beatings, she said, was “extreme” and “did not stop for a minute all these three months.” From mid-March until mid-June, the pair were held in occupied territory in the Donetsk pre-trial detention center by a combination of forces from Russia and the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, she said. “Constantly you are told that you are a fascist, a Nazi,” she said, comparing the conditions to...
    NEW YORK CITY -- A Manhattan woman was awarded over $400,000 on Friday by a federal jury after suing New York City and its police department, saying she suffered a traumatic brain injury when she was thrown to the ground by a police sergeant while serving as a medic for protesters during 2012 Occupy Wall Street events.Mary Tardif, 33, won the $431,250 award nearly a decade after suing in 2013. She had sought unspecified damages for injuries she incurred as a medic for protesters at multiple rallies staged by the grassroots movement that began in Manhattan, spread globally, and was known for its refrain: "We are the 99 percent."In an interview, Tardif called the verdict "very vindicating.""I feel like I have actually known justice for the first time," said Tardif, who works at Broadway Advocacy Coalition where she does sign language interpreting for Broadway shows and serves as a disability adviser.Tardif, who has had epilepsy since she was 19, said she considered the verdict, which found "battery" had occurred but no assault, a win for those "occupiers who never got...
    TALLINN, Estonia (AP) — A celebrated Ukrainian medic whose footage was smuggled out of the besieged city of Mariupol by an Associated Press team was freed by Russian forces on Friday, three months after she was taken captive on the streets of the city.

    KHARKIV, Ukraine (AP) — A celebrated Ukrainian medic recorded her time in Mariupol on a data card no bigger than a thumbnail, smuggled out to the world in a tampon. Now she is in Russian hands, at a time when Mariupol itself is on the verge of falling. Yuliia Paievska is known in Ukraine as Taira, a moniker from the nickname she chose in the World of Warcraft video game.

    A New York City school pediatrician with a cushy 9-5 job has been accused of lying about treating COVID-stricken children on the hospital frontline. Dr. Risa Hoshino was hailed on many top physician influencer lists, and was dubbed 'a veteran of using social media to debunk scientific falsehoods' by the Scientist magazine.  But she has now been accused of lying about working 12-hour hospital shifts and taking care of children suffering from long-COVID in an investigation by Substack blogger Sarah Beth Burwick. Hoshino tweeted about long shifts in full PPE while treating children suffering from long COVID and handing out injections. But Burwick has called her out, saying the job Hoshino does involves no such work. She also flagged social media photos of the medic enjoying herself which didn't tally with Hoshino's claims of back-breaking shifts.  Hoshino, whose LinkedIn claims she works for Mount Sinai, was found out to be a city-employed school pediatrician who mostly worked a remote job for around $170,000 a year during the pandemic.  Dr. Risa Hoshino has been accused of lying about working on the frontlines of...

    "Rust" key medic Cheryln Schaefer has filed a lawsuit against the movie's producers as well as several crew members, claiming she can no longer work following her experience on the movie set. Assistant Director Dave Halls, property master Sarah Zachry, armorer Hannah Gutierrez Reed and firearm supplier Seth Kenney have all been named in the suit, alongside Rust Movie Productions, LLC, and the location that production was being filmed on, Bonanza Creek Ranch. In the lawsuit, which was filed in Santa Fe County late last week, Schaefer alleges that "Gutierrez Reed loaded the revolver with the round containing the bullet that killed [cinematographer] Halyna Hutchins." Furthermore, the suit claims "Zachry assisted Hannah Gutierrez Reed in handling the revolver prior to the rehearsal."

    The National Transportation Safety Board has released a preliminary report detailing the events leading up to the Drexel Hill medical helicopter crash, nearly three weeks after launching an investigation into it. All four people on board the Eurocopter EC135 that crashed outside of the Drexel Hill United Methodist Church on Jan. 11 survived, according to the FAA and Daily Voice sources. One of the occupants included a two-month-old baby. A flight medic and nurse were out of their seats treating a patient when a loud "bang" was heard, and the helicopter "banked sharply right and continued into a right roll," according to the report released on Jan. 31. The medic said that the helicopter rolled inverted and he and the nurse were "pinned to the ceiling" and internal communication was lost, the report reads. Once the chopper was leveled out, the patient was secured and crew members braced for landing, according to the report. All were able to self-extricate, but the pilot suffered the most serious injuries. A self-proclaimed aviation enthusiast who lived close to the crash scene told investigators that his...

    Nearly 17 years ago, Jennifer Saginor published a book exposing the dark side of Hugh Hefner’s Playboy mansion: the drugs, the sex, the parties, and the bikini-clad women running rampant. The "Playground: A Child Lost Inside the Playboy Mansion" author was more than just a visitor at Hefner’s sprawling playground. She first set foot on the famous property of the late Playboy founder in 1975 at age 6, and by age 11, she had her own bedroom. She’d continue to be a regular there until 2010. As Saginor puts it, "I wasn't like the girlfriends and the Playmates who were there to advance their careers, who were there for fame and fortune, or love." Instead, her one-of-a-kind upbringing at the mansion was due to the fact that her father was Hefner’s physician and best friend, Mark Saginor, also known as "Dr. Feelgood," or simply, "Doc." Now, years after being one of the first to reveal a behind-the-scenes look at Hefner’s empire, Saginor appears in the 10-part A&E docuseries that premiered last week titled "Secrets of Playboy." In an interview with Fox News Digital, Saginor revealed the...

    Lara Logan has been dropped by United Talent Agency over her November remarks comparing Dr Anthony Fauci to the Nazi 'Angel of Death', Josef Mengele. Seth Oster, chief communications officer for UTA, confirmed to Mediaite that the agency cut ties with Logan several weeks ago. Logan was let go over her 'highly offensive' and 'unacceptable' comments, which sparked outrage within the agency, a source told Mediaite. South African-born Logan, 50, angered many with her November 29 appearance on Fox News, with the conservative network now scrubbing her from its broadcasts.  And last week, she told a podcaster that she doesn't know whether her relationship with the Murdoch-owned media giant even remains intact.  Host Pete Hegseth, a known critic of coronavirus vaccine mandates and masking policies, accused the Biden administration of overhyping Omicron.  'There's no justification for putting people out of there jobs or forcing mandates for a disease that's ultimately very treatable, it's cheap to treat, medicines are available all over the world, and it has death rates that compare very much to seasonal flu,' said Logan.  'In that moment, what...
