    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky urged US President Joe Biden on Sunday to 'help the whole world by designating Russia as a state sponsor of terror - a move that the White House has previously declined to make. Senior Biden administration officials have been in close contact with Kremlin counterparts 'in the last few days,' White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan also said Sunday, after Russia's autocrat leader Vladimir Putin suggested he could use nuclear weapons in his months-long attack on Ukraine.  It comes amid international condemnation of Moscow's 'sham' referendums in parts of eastern Ukraine that are being occupied by Russia. Videos have appeared to show residents being forced to the polls at gunpoint to vote on whether to allow Russia to annex their home territories. Zelensky told CBS News' Face The Nation that Moscow following through with the illegal annexation would make it 'impossible' to continue to try ending the invasion via diplomatic talks with Kyiv. 'I think it's a very dangerous signal from President Putin that tells us that Putin is not going to finish this war,'...
    Liz Truss today vowed to make the 'special relationship' between the UK and the US 'even more special' amid claims of a freeze in transatlantic détente.  In an interview on CNN's State Of The Union programme, the Prime Minister was asked about concerns in US president Joe Biden's administration that she does not share the same belief in the special relationship as some of her predecessors in No 10. She and Mr Biden met in the margins of the UN General Assembly last week on issues including the political breakdown in Northern Ireland and the war in Ukraine. 'I do think our relationship is special and it's increasingly important at a time when we're facing threats from Russia, increased assertiveness from China,' Ms Truss told the US broadcaster. 'I'm determined that we make the special relationship even more special over the coming years.' She said she is a 'huge fan' of the US, and added: 'We are stepping up as an alliance to take on what is an absolutely appalling war created by (Russian president Vladimir) Putin'. She added that the West...

    North Korea has fired a suspected ballistic missile towards the Sea of Japan just days before US military drills and a visit by Vice President Kamala Harris to the region amid regional tensions, South Korea and Japan's leadership have said. South Korea's military have claimed North Korea has fired at least one unidentified ballistic missile toward its eastern sea.  Since the beginning of 2022, North Korea has dialed up its testing activities to a record pace - testing more than 30 ballistic weapons, including its first intercontinental ballistic missiles since 2017 - as it continues to expand its military capabilities amid a prolonged stalemate in nuclear diplomacy.  The launch came as the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan and its strike group arrived in South Korea for the two countries' joint military exercise to meant to show their strength against growing North Korean threats. It comes just days before a planned visit by the U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris.  A stock image of a ballistic missile previously used during a test firing of what state media reported as a North...
    Iranian Americans are staging demonstrations across the United States this weekend in solidarity with ongoing protests in Iran over the death of a 22-year-old woman who collapsed while in custody of morality police. “Join us in solidarity and be the voice of the Iranian people who are getting brutally suppressed for fighting for basic human rights while their access to internet is cut off,” read a flyer for an event on Saturday in Boston. Similar events are being held in California, Rhode Island and Florida, among other states. Protests erupted in the Islamic Republic earlier this week, following the death of Mahsa Amini last Friday. Days before her death, she was arrested by morality police in Tehran and taken to a “re-education” center to receive guidance on her attire. Iran’s morality police is a dedicated unit enforcing strict dress codes for women, such as wearing the compulsory headscarf. While in custody, Amini fell into a coma and died shortly thereafter. Police have called Amini’s death an “unfortunate incident” and denied she was physically harmed in custody, semiofficial news agency Fars...

    In order to safeguard the United States from any criminal elements slipping in through the southern border, the Biden administration sought a "record" amount of investment in security measures, according to White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby. While underscoring that the Biden administration is "working hard to secure the border" and has troops stationed there to assist the Border Patrol, Kirby threw shade at Republicans for blocking the "record" level of border funding the Biden administration pursued from Congress earlier this year. DESANTIS ADMINISTRATION FACES LAWSUIT FROM FLORIDA LAWMAKER OVER MIGRANT FLIGHTS "We still have troops that are down there assisting Border Patrol officers to try to focus on this. We asked for record levels of funding for DHS. Unfortunately, there was no Republican support for that," Kirby told Fox News Digital. In April, Republicans opposed a funding request from the Biden administration to address the expiration of the pandemic-era Title 42 policy, which denied immigrants entry at the border to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Republicans had been opposed to allowing...
    NEW YORK — Russia's top diplomat accused the United States of acting like a dictator toward countries that threatened its political and economic dominance during his United Nations General Assembly address. "Washington erected themselves into an almost-envoy for God on Earth," Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told the U.N. Saturday through a translator. "Name a country where Washington interfered by force and, as a result of that, life improved." BIDEN MAKES HIS LONG-SHOT UN SECURITY COUNCIL REFORM PITCH Lavrov spoke at the U.N. days after Russian President Vladimir Putin announced he was mobilizing approximately 300,000 army reservists with training and experience for Ukraine and threatened nuclear escalation after Kyiv's successful counteroffensive campaign. The foreign minister criticized Western sanctions and dismissed concerns regarding referenda in Ukraine's eastern Russia-controlled Donbas region, as well as Kherson in the south, on whether they should officially become part of the Russian Federation, as "fits." "People living there are basically only reacting to what was said to them by the head of the Kyiv regime," he said, referring to democratically elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky telling...
    Seattle’s housing market is slowing faster than any in the country, a new study has revealed - as cash-strapped buyers increasingly shy away from home purchases.  The study, from real estate firm Redfin, ranked the nation’s most populous hubs using metrics such as prices, price drops, and supply - and found that the real estate market is cooling fastest primarily along the West Coast. Property prices along West Coast metropolitan areas are understood to be dipping because of a glut of properties on the market, amid a mass exodus of citizens deterred by rising mortgage rates, crime, and warnings of a looming recession. Costly Western locales that had seen their prices swell since the pandemic, such as San Diego and San Jose, helped round out the top 20 fastest-cooling cities, based on yearly changes in prices from February to August 2022. Also present were cities that surfaced as homebuying hotspots during the pandemic, such as Phoenix, Las Vegas and Dallas, whose markets have rapidly cooled as the recently surfaced advent of remote work continues to recede. Meanwhile, the market as a whole has swelled since going...
    The Brooklyn Public Library is offering access to banned books to teens across the country as more states restrict material deemed sexually explicit or racist. As more states moved to ban certain books in public schools, the Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) started a program called Books Unbanned, which offers those aged 13 to 21 access to a free e-card for a 'limited time.'  '[The BPL e-card is] providing access to our full eBook collection as well as our learning databases,' the library's website said. It provides access to 25,000 books to both residents and non-residents, according to Politico.  At the end of the day, the BPL says that disseminating information is part of its mission and it felt compelled to help as more states moved toward bans and has helped more than 5,000 people.  'We’re saying this is what libraries do, we provide access to these materials,' BPL CEO Linda Johnson told Politico.  'Literature is such a powerful thing and it’s something which allows you to get to know yourself better, your world, it allows you to see new things and we...

    Far right wing extremist, Christian nationalist, antisemite Andrew Torba, the founder of Gab, the social media platform that is popular with white supremacists, is telling the Republican Party that “80 percent” of its base is Christian nationalists, and warns them to not “condemn” or “disavow” them. Torba has ties to far right Christian nationalist Doug Mastriano, the Republican party’s nominee for governor of Pennsylvania. Torba has also “endorsed” Arizona GOP secretary of state nominee Mark Finchem, a an election-denier and member of the far-right antigovernment group Oath Keepers, and election-denying Arizona GOP state Senator Wendy Rogers. “We have the numbers, we are the majority. And we are done being the footstool. We are going to wake up the body of Christ in this country. And we’re going to do something about you castrating our children, about you sexually indoctrinating them in the schools, about, you know, taking over our culture and taking over our government and sending all of our money to foreign countries and allowing our border to be invaded,” he says in video published by Right Wing Watch....
    Some of the protests against the hijab have been met with violent repression by state police. Videos of the altercations have been posted to social media to bolster the worldwide effort to oppose laws enforcing the hijab and other religious garb. "Iranians may be silenced by their government, but that does not mean the world has to be silent," tweeted Iranian-American journalist Yashar Ali about the violence.

    Frederick Breedon/Getty Images Matt Barnes walked back Friday the comments he previously made about the suspension of Boston Celtics head coach Ime Udoka. It originally appeared that Barnes would be a prominent supporter of Udoka. This afternoon, however, Barnes posted a live video on his Instagram and retracted the comments he made last night and deleted his original take. “Last night without knowing all the facts I spoke on Ime Udoka’s defense,” Barnes said to his Instagram followers. Barnes gave no details on why he changed his mind, but it was enough to make him give an explanation to his followers. “After finding out the facts, I erased what I posted,” Barnes continued. “This situation in Boston is deep. It’s messy. It’s 100 times uglier than any of us thought.” Barnes argued it is not his business to share, but people should be thoughtful about what happened. “It’s not my place to tell you what happened,” Barnes said. “If it ends up coming out, it ends up coming out, but that was the reason I erased my post last night.”...
    Record-high housing prices in the US could collapse by up to 20 percent over the next year if a recession sparked by Joe Biden's inflation takes hold, a top Wall Street economist has warned.   Ian Shepherdson, a chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, pointed out that home prices have already declined by about five percent from their peak in May and will continue to tumble.  According to his previous work, there are now 40 percent more single-family homes available than four months ago - and previously occupied home sales have slowed for the seventh month straight. Prices for homes sank by 0.7 percent in August, but Shepherdson predicts a total decline of up to 20 percent by the middle of 2023.  He warned that the plunging trend in sales 'has further to go' and that prices are falling as the US enters the fourth quarter of 2022.  There will be an recession encompassing all aspects of the housing industry in the coming months, he claims.   Ian Shepherdson, a chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, warned about an expected fall in house prices...
    Retired NBA forward-turned-media personality Matt Barnes has backed off criticism of the Boston Celtics for suspending head coach Ime Udoka over an alleged affair with an unidentified female staffer. Barnes, 42, originally slammed the suspension on Thursday, only to reverse course on Friday when he learned the 'all the facts,' which he says are '100 times uglier than any of us thought.' Udoka was suspended late Thursday night for the upcoming 2022-23 season over 'multiple' violations of team rules, involving a single female team staff member. ESPN, The Athletic, and The Associated Press have since reported that Udoka was having in inappropriate, but consensual relationship with the woman.  However, The Athletic raised questions about the relationship Thursday night, reporting that Udoka was accused by the woman of making 'unwanted comments' to her, prompting the Celtics to launch internal interviews that ultimately led to his suspension. On Friday, in a self-shot Instagram video, Barnes explained that he deleted his previous post criticizing the decision because he learned more information. 'Since I'm a part of the media now, and I try not...
    Colombia President Gustavo Petro announced 'the war on drugs has failed' in his first address to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday while proposing changes to the nation's drug laws that could end in legalization cocaine. In a response to Petro's statements, the nation's former president, Ivan Duque, 46, told FOX News that he believes the current president's views could lead to the drug's legalization - and possible security risks in the United States. 'What worries me is that there is now the possibility of getting into the permission, or the legalization of, cocaine and consumption,' Duque said Friday. 'I think that it will be very bad for Colombia, and that will be very bad for the countries in the hemisphere, and I think that could generate also a majority security threat to the United States.' Petro, 62, who began his term on August 4, added that humanity's 'addiction to irrational power, profit and money' has been more damaging than drug addiction. 'What is more poisonous for humanity, cocaine, coal or oil?' he asked. 'The opinion of power has...
    Fraudsters stole more than $45 billion in unlawful unemployment claims during the pandemic, the Labor Department concluded on Thursday - while warning that the actual figure may be even higher. Criminals used inventive measures to access the COVID benefits, with more than 205,000 Social Security numbers that belonged to dead people being used to claim the cash. Some schemes saw the Social Security numbers of prisoners being used, despite them being ineligible for the unemployment benefits. The latest figure is more than double the earlier estimate, issued by the Labor Department last year, when they concluded that $16 billion had been stolen. Senator Ron Wyden, a Democrat representing Oregon who chairs the Senate Finance Committee, said the new report proved the urgency of improving security checks on unemployment benefits. 'I've long said we need a national set of technology and security standards for state systems to better prevent this kind of fraud, and we're going to keep working to get our reforms passed,' he said.

    Former President Trump blasted President Biden's handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal in a sit-down interview with Fox News as he told told Sean Hannity a story of why the Taliban feared him too much to take over the nation.  'Under my conversations with Abdul, who's the leader of the Taliban, for 18 months, we didn't lose one soldier,' Trump said Thursday night, referring to Abdul Ghani Baradar, co-founder and senior member of the Taliban.  Trump then told Hannity he threatened to 'obliterate' Abdul if he did not follow his orders.  'Didn't you at one point tell him, 'I know exactly where you are,' and give him the exact coordinates where he was?' Hannity asked.  'No,' Trump replied. 'I sent him a picture of his house.'  'He said, 'But why but why do you send me a picture of my house?' I said, 'You have to figure that one out.''  'Didn't you at one point tell him, 'I know exactly where you are,' and give him the exact coordinates where he was?' Hannity asked. 'No,' Trump replied.

    A COUPLE has shared how their romantic getaway turned into a nightmare after their Wizz Air flight was diverted to a different airport 400 miles away. Ben Hall, 42, who was looking forward to a short break in Dubrovnik, Croatia with his wife said their getaway was ruined after the airline diverted their flight to Zagreb and "abandoned" them. 3The pair was looking forward to their romantic getaway but got stranded in ZagrebCredit: Getty 3Passengers were forced to sleep on the floorCredit: Twitter 3Passengers were promised they would be taken by bus to their destinationCredit: Twitter Ben, from Sheffield, said the pair, alongside other stranded passengers, were left to their own devices and were forced to spend the night at the airport.

    "There are so many socioeconomic differences in the country," said Chelsea Carter, a Democrat who took part in the poll. "It really depends where you were born on the strata," she said. "When you really look at what has given you a leg up, it is people who were able to support and supplement my life in a way that isn't fair," she remarked, pointing to how she had the opportunity to go to private college and get assistance with student loans from her parents.
    The comparisons were all over social media this week. Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields has 28 pass attempts in two games this season. Every other team in the league has at least 28 completions and 52 attempts. New York Jets quarterback Joe Flacco has 103 pass attempts. Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp has been targeted more times (29) than Fields has attempted a pass. And on and on. The Bears’ measly passing-game numbers, which total 15 completions and 191 yards, have dominated talk at Halas Hall in the lead-up to Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans at Soldier Field, with coach Matt Eberflus saying the Bears need to strive for a better balance in the running and passing games. Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy understands it: “I love to throw because I’m a quarterback guy, right?” And surely Getsy knows Fields needs to throw to develop in his second season. But Getsy also believes in following a plan tailored to what a defense is presenting them. “I truly believe in evaluating the matchups each week and saying, ‘OK,...
    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Thursday that inflation will 'certainly' come down by next year, but denied the country was entering a recession because the labor market is so 'tight.'  'A full-scale recession is a period when there's excessive unemployment. You don't have a strong labor market,' Yellen said during an appearance at the Atlantic Festival in Washington. 'We have really one of the tightest labor markets right now we've had in American history.' She was asked by the Atlantic's Ron Brownstein if inflation would be in control by the end of next year - or if it could become a theme during the 2024 presidential election.  'I believe it's going to come down, certainly next year,' she told Brownstein. 'Let's be clear that there are risks.'  The example she gave was whether Russian President Vladimir Putin kept up his assault on Ukraine.  'I think it will be better,' she said. 'Perhaps we will get through next year, but I certainly expect to see inflation come down.'  Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said Thursday that inflation will 'certainly' come down by next...
    By Brenda Goodman, CNN (CNN) — Influenza is always unpredictable. Infectious disease experts like to hedge their forecasts with a caution: When you’ve seen one flu season, you’ve seen one flu season. But when forecasters try to get a bead on what influenza might have in store for North America in any given winter, they look to countries like Australia and New Zealand, where the season typically runs from April to October — winter months in the Southern Hemisphere. This year, Australia had its worst flu season in five years. Cases peaked about three times higher than the average for that period, and they topped out about two months earlier than they normally do, according to official government surveillance reports. Rates of influenza-like illness have also been higher in New Zealand this year than they have been for the past two years. The US should take heed, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told Bloomberg News. “The Southern Hemisphere has had a pretty bad flu season, and it came on early,” Fauci...

    US Soccer has come under scrutiny for not being vocal on Qatar's human rights - but the body has signaled its intent to join the UEFA Working Group, according to reports. Human rights atrocities have occurred in Qatar ahead of the flagship tournament in November and workers' rights are a major issue. But the United States Soccer Federation has been criticized for its 'deafening silence' on human rights, according to The Athletic.  Human Rights Watch condemned the lack of public action by US Soccer and also fears for the 2026 World Cup, hosted by the United States, Canada and Mexico.

    On “60 Minutes” on Sunday, President Joe Biden declared “the pandemic is over.” Well into our third year of battling COVID-19, we all wish that were true. But unfortunately, that is a fantasy right now. All the data tell us the virus is not contained. Far too many people are dying and suffering. And new, worrisome variants are on the horizon. There are 400 to 500 Americans dying of COVID each day, and that high daily death toll has remained constant for the last six months. In July 2021, we were down to just over 200 deaths per day, half of where we are now. A daily toll in the hundreds is a tragedy, because most COVID deaths could have been prevented by vaccinations, boosters and early treatments. It’s not just the deaths. There have been more than 2 million confirmed new COVID infections in the last month, and considering the untested and unreported cases, the real number is a multiple of that, most probably at least fivefold. This means the virus is still fulfilling its principal objective of finding...
    A Malaysian defense contractor nicknamed 'Fat Leonard' who orchestrated one of the largest bribery scandals in U.S. military history has been arrested in Venezuela after fleeing before his sentencing, authorities said Wednesday. The international manhunt for Leonard Glenn Francis ended with his arrest by Venezuelan authorities Tuesday morning at the Caracas airport as he was about to board an airplane for another country, the U.S. Marshals Service said. Interpol Venezuela Director General Carlos Garate Rondon said in a statement posted on Instagram that Francis came to Venezuela from Mexico. Rondon said he was headed to Russia. The arrest came on the eve of his scheduled sentencing in a federal court in California for a bribery scheme that lasted more than a decade and involved dozens of U.S. Navy officers. There was no immediate word on when he might be extradited to the United States. Francis was under home arrest in San Diego when he cut off his GPS ankle bracelet and escaped on Sept. 4. Ten U.S. agencies searched for Francis and authorities issued a $40,000 reward for his arrest....
    (CNN)More people are surviving cancer than ever before in the United States, according to a new report from the American Association for Cancer Research.In the past three years, the number of cancer survivors in the US -- defined as living people who have had a cancer diagnosis -- increased by more than a million. There are 18 million survivors in the US as of January, with that number expected to increase to 26 million by 2040, the association said. The report notes that there were only 3 million US cancer survivors in 1971. For all cancers combined, the five-year overall survival rate has increased from 49% in the mid-1970s to nearly 70% from 2011 to 2017, the most recent years for which data is available.The overall cancer death rate, adjusted for age, continues to drop, with reductions between 1991 and 2019 translating into nearly 3.5 million deaths avoided, the association said.Declines in smoking and improvements in catching and treating cancer early are driving the change, according to the AACR Cancer Progress Report 2022, released Wednesday.Biden to deliver Cancer Moonshot speech...

    A SPIRIT bear has recently been seen in the US for the first time in more than fifteen years, appearing in Michigan. These white bears are being called a one-in-a-million sight, and its recent appearance on camera in the woods is acting as a hopeful symbol for conservationists. 1The first spirit bear outside of its British Columbia since 2004 has been spotted on an anonymous hunter's camera. The bear is nearly entirely white, with some cinnamon coloring on its neck and head.Credit: Facebook This special bear sighting was captured by a camera located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, according to Newsweek. "It is a sign of great change," Austin Ayres told MLive. Ayres is a wildlife technician at Michigan's Keweenaw Bay Indian Community Natural Resources Department. "Some stories say the bear only comes when it is time for Anishinaabe to embrace their role and step away from their distractions," he added of the animal's symbolism in Native America culture.

At the same time, their family was still growing to now include four children - Nathan, eight; Emma, six; Lily, four; and Caleb, two. Kristen said: "I started realizing how prices had changed, but I'd never really looked at a huge number of products and compared them across the board. "I didn't really shop at Walmart [at the time], and Aldi was becoming more popular." Read more retail exclusivesEVERY...
    Apple Watch Ultra.Sofia Pitt I've been testing Apple Watch Ultra ahead of its release on Friday. The Ultra is designed for extreme athletes and outdoor adventurers. I appreciated a lot of what it has to offer, especially the noticeably improved battery: It's got 36 hours of battery life when used normally and lasts up to 60 hours when in low-power mode. That's way better than the 18 hours you get with the Series 8, the newest edition of the regular Apple Watch.related investing newsNvidia CEO tries to soothe investor angst over gaming as new graphics cards are set to launchKevin Stankiewicz13 hours agoThe water resistance, scuba-diving computer, redesigned compass and precise GPS for endurance athletes are pretty remarkable technical feats for a smartwatch.

    Fox News led the competition on Monday as coverage of Queen Elizabeth II's funeral in the UK took place largely during the first half of the day. The network pulled in 1.74 million average viewers over the coveted 5am to 1pm hours as they covered the end of her reign and the dazzling funeral procession that followed. CNN and MSNBC also received a boost from the monarch's death according to Nielsen Media Research as they raked in  1.32 million viewers and 890,000 viewers respectively.  CNN did well in the 25 to 54 age demographic, in some places better than Fox News, but were beaten out overall as they averaged 232,000 viewers in that demographic to Fox News' 243,000. MSNBC fell way short in this area, as they only averaged 85,000 viewers in that age demographic.  At the end of the day, Fox News grabbed the lion's share of viewers with 1.94 million total viewers, while MSNBC placed second with 1.44 million.

    A Texas sheriff who has launched an investigation into possible human trafficking by the governors of Texas and Florida, after they flew a group of Venezuelan migrants unwittingly to Martha's Vineyard, on Tuesday said the United States should welcome migrants because restaurants needed the staff. On Tuesday, the 50 Venezuelan migrants who were flown to Martha's Vineyard filed a class action suit against Ron DeSantis, Florida's governor, who arranged the flight from Texas - arguing that they 'experienced cruelty akin to what they fled in their home country'. Javier Salazar, a Democrat whose district, Bexar County, includes the city of San Antonio, said the U.S. needed to rethink its attitude towards migrants, and said flying them across the country was not the solution. 'I think at some point you're going to have to embrace the fact that this is happening, to a certain extent,' he told CNN. Speaking hours after new Customs and Border Protection data showed that migrant arrivals had surpassed two million this year for the first time ever, Salazar said they were needed, as workers. He said...
    Republican Rep. Jim Jordan said FBI whistleblowers have come forward to tell him that the bureau is  'deliberately manipulating' how case files related to January 6 are maintained to fit the 'political narrative' that domestic extremism is on the rise in the U.S. Jordan shared a letter he wrote Monday to FBI Director Christopher Wray where he claims that the FBI is running cases out of the local field offices where January 6 suspects reside - instead of from Washington, D.C., where the Capitol attack occurred - 'in order to create a false and misleading narrative that domestic violent extremism is increasing around the country.' 'Instead of hundreds of investigations stemming from a single, black swan incident at the Capitol, FBI and DOJ officials point to significant increases in domestic violent extremism and terrorism around the United States,' a whistleblower is quoted by Jordan in the letter, obtained by Just The News.  Republican Rep. Jim Jordan (left) wrote a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray (right) saying that whistleblowers had come forward and informed him the way the FBI is treating...
     Juul Labs, the vaping company blamed for much of the crisis gripping the nation's teens, has sued the U.S. Food and Drug Administration over the agency's refusal to disclose documents supporting its order banning the company. In a complaint filed on Tuesday, Juul accused the FDA of invoking the 'widely abused' deliberative process privilege to improperly withhold scientific materials that are 'central' to understanding the basis for the June 23 sales ban. Juul said the materials would show whether the FDA conducted a legally required balancing of the public health benefits and risks of its products. The materials would let the company see the findings of whether they help smokers quit cigarettes, and whether the agency's reasoning was scientifically sound. 'The public deserves a complete picture of the scientific facts behind one of the agency's most controversial and closely scrutinized decisions in recent years,' Juul said.

    All Americans adults under the age of 65 should be regularly screened for anxiety, a leading panel of U.S. doctors said Tuesday. The U.S. Preventative Service Task Force published a draft guidance recommending doctors to screen patients even when they do not show symptoms. While the document will be open to public comment until October 17, it is like likely the group will affirm the guidance. The group had been exploring guidance regarding anxiety screening since before the COVID-19 erupted in early 2020, but the pandemic - and the surge in mental health issues across America that came as a result of it made them even more relevant to the moment. Anxiety disorders are among the most common mental health complaints, affecting about 40 percent of U.S. women at some point in their lives and more than one in four men, Lori Pbert, a task force member and co-author said. The Anxiety & Depression Association of America estimates that nearly 20 percent of American suffer from an active anxiety disorder with women and people under the age of 45 at most...

The draft recommendation is not final, but will now enter a public comment period.The panel found "that screening for anxiety in adults younger than 65, and that includes those who are pregnant and postpartum ... can help identify anxiety early," Lori Pbert, a task force member, told CNN. "So it's truly exciting." The 4-7-8 method that could help you sleepThe task force defines anxiety disorders as "characterized by greater duration or intensity of a stress response over everyday events." Recognized types include generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and agoraphobia.

    Eva Shainblum was just 16 when she and her entire family were rounded up and sent to Auschwitz death camp. Loaded onto cattle trucks in June 1944 from a ghetto in Nagyvárad, Hungary, with Soviet and Allied troops closing in, upon arrival almost all of her family were immediately sent to the gas chambers. Only Eva and her sister Ela survived. In the filthy, disease-ridden conditions of the extermination camp which would eventually claim an estimated 1.1 million lives, the sisters existed on a miserable diet of rotten vegetables and bitter liquid.

    By Keith Laing | Bloomberg Traffic fatalities on US roads declined in the second quarter, halting an almost two-year rise even as Americans are driving more. Some 10,590 people died in car crashes from April through June, down 4.9% from the same period in 2021, according to estimates released Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Fatalities had been increasing since the third quarter of 2020. “Although it is heartening to see a projected decline in roadway deaths in recent months, the number of people dying on roads in this country remains a crisis,” Ann Carlson, NHTSA’s acting administrator, said in a statement. Carlson recently assumed the role after Steven Cliff stepped down to return to the California Air Resources Board.

    Ukraine has captured its first village in Luhansk as its counter-offensive presses further into Russia-occupied territory, refusing to slow after snatching back thousands of miles in east Ukraine from the Russian war machine. The occupied country said its troops have marched farther east into territory recently abandoned by Russia after its six-month campaign, paving the way for a potential assault on Moscow's occupation forces in the Donbas region as Kyiv seeks more Western arms. The village lies only a dozen or so miles from the towns of Lysychansk and Severdonestsk, regions that took Russia five months to conquer — with the Ukrainian army stating its intent to take back all of Luhansk, much of which has been occupied since 2014. In a sign of nervousness from a Moscow-backed administration in Donbas about the success of Ukraine's recent offensive, its leader called for urgent referendums on the region becoming part of Russia. 'The occupiers are clearly in a panic,' Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a televised address late on Monday, adding that he was now focused on 'speed' in liberated areas....
    Beer drinkers across the United States are staring glumly into their pints, knowing that the costs are likely to rise due to a nationwide shortage of carbon dioxide - thanks in part to issues at a Mississippi volcano. The extinct volcano, the Jackson Dome, has since 1977 provided carbon dioxide to the food industry, among others. Yet in recent months the supply has become contaminated due to raw gas from a mine seeping in, meaning it cannot be used in food. As a result, the beer industry is facing another shortage - coming after trouble that first bubbled up in 2020, when the pandemic caused problems in the supply chain and drove up prices. 'We've been running delivery to delivery for the past few weeks, and we are certainly concerned about the supply,' said Ronn Friedlander, co-founder of Aeronaut Brewing.

Not by those of us who witnessed it, not by generations yet to be born. Yet beyond all the pomp, pageantry and ancient ritual, it felt strangely personal.
