    Prince Harry's ghostwriter today defended Spare from damaging claims of inaccuracy and historical errors, insisting 'inadvertent mistakes' are common in memoirs where 'the line between memory and fact is blurry'. J.R. Moehringer, who has also authored autobiographies for Andre Agassi and Nike co-founder Phil Knight, came to the defence of the book he was reportedly paid $1million to write. Sharing an excerpt from Harry's book, emphasising that the exiled prince himself admits at times said he was unsure of all the details he shares, often blaming trauma in childhood. But in the same book he also insists: 'It's important that history has it right'. Mr Moehringer tweeted Harry's words last night: 'Whatever the cause, my memory is my memory... there's just as much truth in what I remember and how I remember it as there is in so-called objective facts'. He also tweeted a quote from Mary Karr, author of The Art of Memoir, which said: 'The line between memory and fact is blurry, between interpretation and fact. There are inadvertent mistakes of those kind out of the wazoo.'  Harry has been accused of...
    A mother has revealed how her baby sons became the UK's most premature twins - and were given zero per cent chance of survival - after they were delivered more than a week before the legal abortion limit. Harley and Harry Crane were conceived via IVF and were born at 22 weeks and five days. Babies born at 22 weeks are not classed as legally viable and medical intervention is sometimes not offered.

    (CNN)The American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas has filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of four inmates who claim they were given the drug Ivermectin to treat Covid-19 without their consent. The suit accuses the Washington County Detention Center, Washington County Sheriff Tim Helder, jail physician Dr. Robert Karas and Karas Correctional Health of administering Ivermectin to the inmates without prior informed consent as to the nature, contents or potential side effects of the drug. Plaintiffs Edrick Floreal-Wooten, Jeremiah Little, Julio Gonzales, and Dayman Blackburn allege they were deceived over a period of days -- and possibly weeks -- after receiving "high amounts" of Ivermectin. CDC warns against use of anti-parasitic drug ivermectin for Covid-19The lawsuit, filed on January 13 in the US District Court of Western Arkansas, states that the plaintiffs say they were given Ivermectin as early as November 2020, but didn't become aware of the treatment until July 2021 -- instead being told their treatment consisted of "vitamins," "antibiotics," and/or "steroids." In August 2021 at a county budget hearing Sheriff Tim Helder confirmed that Karas Correctional Health...
    One of the four inmates named in the suit, Edrick Floreal-Wooten, said he felt violated Four inmates at an Arkansas jail are suing the facility and its doctor after they were allegedly tricked into taking ivermectin to treat COVID-19 - despite the CDC warnings that the drug does not prevent or treat the virus, and can have serious side effects. The inmates at Washington County Jail were told the pills they were taking were just vitamins, antibiotics or steroids, according to a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas in federal court Thursday on behalf of the detainees. 'The truth, however, was that without knowing and voluntary consent, Plaintiffs ingested incredibly high doses of a drug that credible medical professionals, the FDA, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, all agree is not an effective treatment against COVID-19,' the lawsuit continued.  The suit states that inmates were given the drug as early as in November 2020 and in very high doses. One of the four inmates named in the suit, Edrick Floreal-Wooten, said he felt violated. 'It...

    An Arkansas doctor under investigation for prescribing an anti-parasite drug called ivermectin to jail detainees with COVID-19, even though federal health officials specifically warn against it, has said that those patients took the drug willingly. But several inmates at the Washington County jail say that is not the case — that they were given the pills with no indication of what they really were. CBS News spoke with 29-year-old Edrick Floreal-Wooten over a video call from the jail on Friday. After testing positive for COVID-19 in August, he said he and other inmates went to "pill call" and were given several pills with the explanation that it would help them "get better." He said he and others asked repeatedly what the pills were. "They said they were vitamins, steroids and antibiotics," Floreal-Wooten told CBS News. "We were running fevers, throwing up, diarrhea ... and so we figured that they were here to help us. ... We never knew that they were running experiments on us, giving us ivermectin. We never knew that." Edrick Floreal-Wooten, right, with his wife. Floreal-Wooten says he...

    A Washington State inmate was sentenced to an additional 24 years for murdering his cellmate - a convicted child rapist who had abused his sister. Shane Goldsby, 26, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder charges, and was sentenced last week for beating his cellmate Robert Munger, 70, to death in June 2020.  Munger was serving a 43-year prison sentence at the Airway Heights Correctional facility on multiple child molestation and child pornography charges, when Goldsby was assigned to his cell. Goldsby said he snapped after hearing Munger brag about his crimes, and while in a prison common area, came up from behind and attacked Munger, knocking him to the ground, before punching and kicking him in the face 14 times and then stomping on his head another four times before walking away.  Munger died three days later from his injuries.  Shane Goldsby, 26, (left) was sentenced to an additional 24 years in prison after he beat his cellmate, Robert Munger, 70, to death upon discovering he had sexually assaulted his sister.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — There is no way to know how many Chicago Public Schools staff members have received the COVID-19 vaccine. The district believes it is about 34%, but as CBS 2’s Dana Kozlov reported two weeks ago, the Chicago Teachers Union has asked members not to take the CPS survey. A new vendor has been chosen to replace Innovative Express Care, which had been distributing vaccines to CPS employees. READ MORE: Ald. Anthony Beale Calls For City Council To Return Threshold For Speed Camera Tickets To 10 MPH As of Wednesday morning, there were 1,000 appointments still available for Thursday for Chicago school staff, but it’s not just school staff that is affected.

    ALL that the dunderheads in charge of giving out “free” packed school lunches had to do was call up a few mums and ask what they needed. Instead they put together a meagre, miserly package as insulting as it was useless. 7Meagre food packages given to families were as insulting as they were useless, writes Lorraine KellyCredit: BPM Media It looked like something the poor souls in post-war Russia would have had to put up with, and there wasn’t even the wherewithal to make a decent, healthy, warming pot of soup. And may I ask what utter genius decided to include small plastic ­bottles of water in these food parcels? We are in the incredibly ­fortunate position of having clean, safe water on tap here in the UK. There’s absolutely no need for such expense, not to mention the effect on the environment of all that packaging. It honestly looked like they were taking the p*** for a particularly unfunny sketch show. The private company responsible should be ashamed of themselves for such incompetence. But let’s not forget that...
    LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) – More than 30,000 Americans volunteered for Stage 3 of the Moderna vaccine clinical trial. More than 200 of them are in Colorado. (credit: CBS) Half got the vaccine and half a placebo, a saline solution. The biotechnology company has proposed unblinding the study, telling participants which shot they got and offering to vaccinate those in the placebo group. Four West Metro firefighters at Station 2 are especially interested in what’s next. They are enrolled in the clinical trial. Lt. Aaron Johnson said volunteering was an easy decision. “Because we thought the benefit was going to protect us and our families,” Johnson told CBS4 Health Specialist Kathy Walsh. (credit: CBS) Fire crews have dealt with potential Covid cases since the start of the pandemic. “We’re walking into an unknown situation all the time,” said Johnson. “So we’d have a good chance of testing the efficacy of the vaccine,” said Lt. Mike Binney. In the study, they had just a 50/50 chance of getting the vaccine, but Binney was on board. “I thought this was incredibly important as...

    Residents in nursing homes across the country will now be allowed to welcome visitors for the first time in six months.  The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced a ban on family members visiting nursing facilities back in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Exceptions were made only for critical care and end-of-life situations.  But on Friday, the organization lifted that ban, effective immediately,  following widespread complaints that nursing home patients were suffering from anxiety and depression without visits from loved ones.  All nursing homes across the United States must now allow outdoor visits or risk potential sanctions if they refuse to do so.  Residents in nursing homes across the country will now be allowed to welcome visitors for the first time in six months following changes made by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on Friday.

    'The only thing they told me was: 'You're going to go to sleep and when you wake up, we will have finished.'' Sitting across from her lawyer at an immigration detention center in rural Georgia, Mileidy Cardentey Fernandez unbuttoned her jail jumpsuit to show the scars on her abdomen. There were three small, circular marks. The 39-year-old woman from Cuba was told only that she would undergo an operation to treat her ovarian cysts, but a month later, she's still not sure what procedure she got. After Cardentey repeatedly requested her medical records to find out, Irwin County Detention Center gave her more than 100 pages showing a diagnosis of cysts but nothing from the day of the surgery. "The only thing they told me was: 'You're going to go to sleep and when you wake up, we will have finished,'" Cardentey said this week in a phone interview.
    A £5 steroid reduces the risk of dying from coronavirus by a third in patients on ventilators, a major British trial has found. In the biggest coronavirus breakthrough to date, dexamethasone was also shown to save the lives of a fifth of Covid-19 sufferers with moderate illness receiving oxygen.   The results from the RECOVERY trial suggest the steroid can prevent death in one in eight ventilated coronavirus patients and one in 25 on breathing support.  But the drug had no benefit for people who were hospitalised with the virus but did not require oxygen, the study of more than 6,000 Covid-19 patients found. Dexamethasone, which is given either via an injection or as a once-a-day tablet, becomes the first drug proven to treat the incurable viral disease. It was first discovered in 1957 and is commonly prescribed to patients with allergic disorders, skin conditions, ulcerative colitis, arthritis and some types of cancer.  The steroid prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation, a nasty symptom of coronavirus infection that makes breathing difficult.  In seriously unwell Covid-19 patients, the lungs become...
