    A newborn baby's ear was nearly cut off after the doctor who delivered him via C-section opted to use three cellphones for lighting following a power outage at a hospital in Mexico. Karla Urizandi, 19, gave birth to Juan Adriel Solis on June 6 at Mexicali International Specialties Clinic in Mexicali, Baja California, after the medical facility lost power for about 26 minutes. Urizandi checked in at 11am and was transferred to the delivery room at 12:40pm. The power went out around 12:48pm and the backup generator reportedly was not activated.  The teenager recalled the anesthesia had already been applied when the lights suddenly went out.  #Estados | En una clínica particular de #Mexicali, #BajaCalifornia; médicos cortaron la oreja de una bebé recién nacida.

    This content is sponsored by PenFed Credit Union, federally insured by NFCU. Looking to buy a new home? There are many different mortgage options available to you – among them are FHA loans. Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans are backed by the U.S government so lenders can offer better deals, said the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. With FHA loans, interest rates are low, and you only need a 3.5% down payment, the experts at PenFed Credit Union said. “FHA loans have less stringent credit guidelines compared to conventional mortgages. First-time homebuyers tend to choose this type of loan because it’s easier to qualify for,” PenFed Credit Union said. In fact, according to FHA’s 2020 Annual Report, more than 83 percent of all FHA loan originations were for borrowers purchasing their first homes. With these types of loans, FHA only insures the loan — they don’t lend the money. To get an FHA loan, you have to go to an approved lender, PenFed noted. With an FHA fixed-rate mortgage, your interest rate will remain the same during the...
    A MONEY-saving expert has revealed which appliances use the most power when they’re switched off. It comes as households are set for a huge hit to their cost of living of up to £1,300 this year, according to the latest UK economic outlook. 1Remember to unplug or your bills could soarCredit: Getty And the energy price cap rose by a massive 54 per cent in April - meaning many Brits will this year be scrimping and saving to keep afloat. Now, Natalia Lachim from Discount Code has revealed what appliances Brits should unplug rather than leaving them on standby. Although fridges and freezers can obviously not be unplugged every night - Natalia still has some tips to cut their running costs, reports The Mirror. He said: "As a fridge/freezer needs to constantly be on, it is unsurprising that over 12 per cent of the entire household’s energy comes from the fridge/freezer alone, costing households around £114.24 per year.

    President Joe Biden was asked about a military response to a potential Russian chemical attack in Ukraine, and warned of a “severe price” if Russia were to commit that sort of atrocity. For several days, the Biden administration has raised questions about the prospect of a Russian chemical or biological attack on Ukraine, in response to things like Russia’s attempts to project such intentions on Ukraine. In a lengthy Twitter thread Wednesday, Psaki raised concern over the prospect of a Russian chemical or biological attack on Ukraine, in response to things like Russia’s attempts to project such intentions on Ukraine. “We took note of Russia’s false claims about alleged U.S. biological weapons labs and chemical weapons development in Ukraine,” Psaki wrote, and after noting Russia’s pattern of behavior on chemical weapons, concluded “Now that Russia has made these false claims, and China has seemingly endorsed this propaganda, we should all be on the lookout for Russia to possibly use chemical or biological weapons in Ukraine, or to create a false flag operation using them. It’s a clear pattern.” On Friday morning, Biden gave an ominous answer when he was...
    Chimpanzees do not automatically know what to do when they come across nuts and stones and must learn the complex behaviour from others, a study has found. Researchers said their discovery shows that ape culture is more similar to humans than previously thought, whereby skills accumulate over generations and become increasingly efficient or complex. The study found that a group of wild chimpanzees did not crack nuts when provided with stone tools, even though a separate, nearby community of the apes were using them. This suggests that the use of tools is not easily picked up by wild chimpanzees, the researchers said, and may hint that this behaviour has to be socially learned.

    WHEN texting our kids and teens it can sometimes feel like they're speaking a different language with the amount of emojis they use. But while you might think you know what they all mean, even the most recognisable icons can have hidden meanings you may not be aware of. 12Emojis are part of texting now, but it's not always obvious what each icon actually means Alfie Payne, Managing Director of Ape, a digital communications and web agency, says: “In the last couple of years, we’ve seen a rise in the acceptance of emojis. "They’re a quick, easy and a universally recognised way for individuals to express their feelings and reactions to situations.   "However older users may send different emoji responses, meaning things can get lost in translation or misunderstood between different generations."

    Navigating a sighted world with a white cane is a bitter life for some. But not Mac Coates. His cheerfulness is infectious despite a genetic eye disease that robbed him of his sight as a young man, leaving him in permanent darkness. “I’m happy because I’ve learned how to use my independent living skills. I’m glad I can do things for myself,” said the 71-year-old Pittsburg resident. Coates was in his late 20s when the gradual loss of peripheral vision forced him out of his job as a fry cook because he had earned a reputation for being accident-prone. He turned to the state Department of Rehabilitation for help, which taught him how to find his way around with a cane and sent him to community college. Coates found work as a substitute special education teacher, and eventually earned a four-year college degree. When he moved to Pittsburg in 2008 and reached out again to the state to find an organization that offered social activities for the blind, Coates was referred to the Lions Center for the Visually Impaired.

    The on-set medic for Alec Baldwin's Western film, where a camerawoman was killed on Thursday, immediately realized that there had been a terrible mistake, according to a report. Cherlyn Schaefer, the on-set medic, said that she was immediately surprised at the noise of the gunshot Cherlyn Schaefer heard a 'loud shot' which surprised her, according to the medic's report from the immediate aftermath of the shooting, reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. She said the noise was unexpected, because the team making the film Rust in the New Mexico desert was not meant to be using special effects at that point.  'Are we rehearsing? Because 'fire in the hole' wasn't called,' Schaefer said, according to the report. The phrase 'fire in the hole' means that special effects are being used for an explosion. After hearing someone say 'medic emergency' following the bang, she ran to a church on the set where the first scene after lunch was being set up.  Schaefer said she heard people saying that the cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, 42, had been shot in the chest. Baldwin, the film's...
    The remuneration received by the artists responsible for creating the comics that inspire the Marvel or DC films are ridiculously low, considering the profits that the films generate. The superhero cinema it has become a veritable money-making machine. A good part of the current films come from written stories, be they novels or comics, and the superheroes of Marvel and DC they have become the best example of it. Marvel Studios has released 24 MCU movies, and today premieres its fourth MCU television series on Disney Plus. The franchise has won more than 23 billion dollars worldwide, and some films alone have exceeded one billion, and even 2 billion in the case of Avengers Endgame. With such brutal numbers, anyone would think that the creators of the comics that the films are inspired by would get a good pinch for their original work, since without it, many of the productions would not exist. Disney + continues to release news, such as its STAR channel. If you sign up for the annual subscription, you will save the equivalent of two months...

Ashton, 43, and Mila, 37, admitted they only give daughter Wyatt, six, and son Dimitri, four, a scrub when they look physically grubby.  And even when the youngsters are allowed a quick dip in the tub, they hardly ever use soap because they don't want to dry their delicate skin out.  Mila and Ashton also revealed that they avoid using soap on their own bodies too.   They discussed their family's approach to hygiene on the latest Armchair Expert podcast, which is hosted by Dax Shepard and Monica Padman.  Candid: Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis admitted they only give daughter Wyatt, six, and son Dimitri, four, a scrub when they look physically grubby; the family are pictured in 2017 At one point Dax told Monica that she should not be excising the natural oil on your skin with a bar of soap every day.  In response Monica replied: 'I can't believe I am in the minority here of washing my whole body in the shower....
    Bats that use echolocation as they fly through the dark have special genes that protect their cochlear hair cells, keeping them from going deaf from their own ultrasonic shrieks.The findings, published in the Journal of Genetics and Genomics, could lead to treatments for certain kinds of hearing loss in humans. Echolocation happens when an animal emits a sound that bounces off objects in the environment, returning echoes that provide information about the surrounding space— how far away an object is, it's size, shape and density, and the direction it may be moving. Most, but not all bats use echolocation to navigate and find food sources in the dark, with some emitting sounds up to 140 decibels—equivalent to a jet engine taking off.    Extended exposure to anything above 80 decibels can cause ear damage in most mammals, according to New Scientist. Above 120 decibels can be painful and cause permanent damage to the fine hairs in the inner ear, or cochlea, which help with hearing. Researchers in China found that, in bats that use echolocation, genes protecting cochlear hair cells are...
    On Wednesday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Evening Edit,” Rep. James Comer (R-KY) reacted to Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry admitting that China uses slave labor to produce solar panels by stating that it’s “very troubling” that the Biden administration wants to strike a climate deal with China. Comer said, “Now, we’re learning that much of the solar panel — the materials used for solar panels are made with slave labor in China. So, the fact that they want to sign another climate agreement with China, who uses slave labor, much less the fact that China is the world’s largest polluter is very troubling and I’m glad to hear John Kerry admit that under oath today.” He added, “China is hacking into a lot of our technology right now and now they’re — we’ve proven that they’re using slave labor to produce [these] Green New Deal solar panels that Democrats are obsessed with converting our energy policy into. And I just think it’s a terrible precedent to try to do any major agreement with China when we...
    Basic income programs that exclude white people could prove to be illegal if public money is used to fund them, an expert has warned.  Libby Schaaf, the mayor of Oakland, California, last week announced a privately funded program that will give low-income families of color $500 per month with no rules on how they can spend it. It was then reported that the non-profit Marin Community Foundation in Marin County would also $1,000 monthly grants to 125 women of color with children.  The Marin County Board of Supervisors has said it will provide $400,000 to the program following a vote last Tuesday, The San Francisco Chronicle reports.  But Walter Olson, a legal expert at the Cato Institute, argues that federal and state law bars race-selected schemes and warned that Marin County's scheme could be 'racially discriminatory' following its decision to award public funding.  Olson told Reason: 'The structure of the program is racially discriminatory. It will probably not make it over the threshold for when government is allowed to discriminate.'  As for the Oakland scheme Olson says that is more complex, adding: 'The...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — So many Chicago restaurants and bars had to shut down during the beginning of the pandemic, but they still had to pay the city for a liquor license. One alderman wants owners to get some of that money back. As CBS 2’s Tara Molina reported Monday, Ald. Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25th) is looking for millions of federal stimulus dollars to pull off this relief.

    New York : Since the health emergency due to Covid-19 began, we all began to wear masks to prevent contagion. However, doctors were already used to using them long before this whole situation started. Because of their work, they wear a type of special-use mask, as Yahoo Life points out, but it was not until last year that they also had to wear it, like all of us, outside of healthcare centers. Medical masks to combat the emergency In their workplaces, doctors must wear special masks, such as those for surgery, or the famous N95. There are those who even use them in their day-to-day lives outside of their work, as they feel more secure. However, some have opted for other options due to the recommendations of the health authorities to leave these for the exclusive use of medical personnel to attend to emergencies. The masks, now mandatory worldwide use, have favored merchants and entrepreneurs. Photo: Pixabay This recommendation was made due to the shortage that began to occur due to the high demand for masks by the general...

    First, let me offer my sincere congratulations to Meghan and Harry on the news that they're going to have another baby. Any pregnancy is a wonderful blessing, though as Jerry Seinfeld once cautioned: 'Make no mistake about why babies are here - they are here to replace us.' It's an especially joyful moment for a couple who suffered the pain of a miscarriage last summer, and as a father-of-four myself, I wish them nothing but happiness with their new addition when he or she arrives. But I can't have been the only one who was somewhat surprised by the manner in which we learned of this delightful development. The statement from their spokesman, saying the couple are 'overjoyed to be expecting their second child', was perfectly standard. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are preparing to welcome their second child, a spokesperson confirmed However, accompanying it was a photograph of Meghan lying in Harry's lap under a tree in the Californian sunshine, with her Hobbit-like bare-footed husband grinning broadly as he cradled her bump.

    Regularly using marijuana has long-term harmful effects regardless of how old the person was when they began smoking, a new study suggests Researchers looked at people who began smoking or vaping cannabis routinely in high school or in their early 20s in comparison with non-users. They found that, by age 35, pot users who began at any age were more likely at least three times more likely to be high-risk alcohol drinkers, at least seven times more likely to smoke cigarettes daily and 20 times more likely to use other drugs. The team, from the University of Queensland, in Australia, said the findings should be used to send a clear message to the public about the risks of regular cannabis use .

    A family-run 'ministry' in Florida has been accused of fraudulently obtaining more than $8.4million in pandemic-related loans, which they allegedly planned to put towards a new home in Disney World before fleeing to Canada.   Prosecutors say ASLAN International Ministry in Orlando allegedly used false documents to obtain the funds through the government's Paycheck Protection Program in April.  The loan program was created as part of the CARES ACT earlier this year to provide relief to small businesses struggling during the pandemic.   According to a federal court filing on Monday, ASLAN Vice President Joshua Edwards initially applied for a $6.91million loan, using documents to paint the church as a successful organization that had $51million in revenue last year.  The Edwards family is accused of fraudulently obtaining $8.4million in PPP loans through their church, ASLAN International Ministry, based in Orlando, Florida  The church was reportedly founded in 2005 in Ohio, but later applied to conduct business as a foreign nonprofit organization in Florida in 2018 Business records show ASLAN operated as a family-run nonprofit 'foreign ministry' with father Evan Edwards as...
    And can you blame them? Americans turned out in massive numbers this election, and while the details are still in doubt, we now know the broad themes of their message: Americans want soft drugs and entrenched political incompetence, damn it, and they want them both right now. Five states had ballot measures loosening or removing restrictions on marijuana usage in 2020. All five of them won. Recreational usage will soon be legal in Arizona, Montana, New Jersey, and South Dakota. South Dakota and Mississippi passed separate measures legalizing medical use. Washington, D.C., and Oregon went farther. Measures to legalize psychedelic mushrooms for medical use passed in both, due to heightened interest in therapeutic usage. Oregon also decriminalized the position of "harder" drugs like methamphetamines, in small "non-commercial" amounts, in a move intended to shift law enforcement resources away from the prosecution of petty offenders. Those offenders will instead be redirected towards anti-addiction programs. None of this resolves the continued conflict between the states, which continue to steadily shift towards soft-drug legalization, and a conservative federal government resistant to those moves. Voters, however,...
    (CNN) — Millions of young people vape. How aware are their parents? Not very, says a new study. Parents and guardians are less likely to know or suspect when their children vape or use other tobacco products than they are when they smoke cigarettes, the study, published in Pediatrics, said. About 70% of the parents and guardians of children who smoke reported being aware or suspecting it. For kids who use e-cigarettes, the percentage is about 40%, the study said. “When parents think about tobacco, many will picture smoking a cigarette but other tobacco and nicotine products may not come to mind,” said Dr. Benjamin Chaffee, a senior author of the study and associate professor at University of California San Francisco School of Dentistry. “E-cigarettes, in particular, may look like a tech device and don’t produce a lasting odor.” Other types of tobacco products more likely to go unnoticed are non-cigarette combustible products or smokeless tobacco. Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine, according to the CDC. “Any tobacco or nicotine use by children is concerning,” Chaffee told CNN. “Any product that delivers nicotine has a...

    Access to public space has been restricted in the pandemic, from libraries to parks to transit to sidewalks. While it's still too early to predict exactly how public space will evolve, some concerning patterns have emerged. Who gets to exist in these spaces and how will likely be drawn along race- and class-based lines, experts told Insider. "Who knows if we'll ever be able to do the things we used to do?" one library director said. "I hope we can." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. On a Friday in early March, Jennifer Pearson looked around her library in Lewisburg, Tennessee. "The library was full of older people," Pearson, the library's director, said. "I thought, if I don't close this space, they will never stop coming to it, so I have to close it, for their good and for my staff." The Marshall County Memorial Library closed in mid-March due to the pandemic — and with its closure came the shuttering of one of the county's only public spaces. "In my rural area, and in lots of rural...
    Source: Microsoft Imagine Patrick Mahomes staring at you after he scores a game-winning touchdown for the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs. Now picture yourself staring back, as you sit in front of a screen, and then giving Mahomes a virtual high five. That's what'll happen starting with the beginning of the NFL season Thursday when Microsoft launches a new version of its fan cheering sections through its Teams video chat app. Microsoft describes the NFL version of the cheering section "as a virtual mirrors," or LED screens will appear in each end zone during NFL games, allowing players to celebrate with fans who are not in attendance. (Most NFL teams will play in empty, or mostly empty stadiums due to local restrictions from the coronavirus pandemic.) After a team scores, players can gather around the screen to view themselves celebrating with fans in Teams.
