    Police in Albuquerque are investigating a possible serial killer, after three Muslim men were murdered within five miles of each other in the last nine months. The trio were all ambushed alone outside their home or work place, and killed by a gunman. They did not know each other, although the two most recent victims attended the same mosque. After the third killing, on Monday, Albuquerque police and the FBI held a news conference Thursday in front of the Islamic Center of New Mexico to announce investigators have found a 'strong possibility' the same attacker could have carried out all three murders. 'While we won't go into why we think there's a connection, there's one strong commonality in all of our victims — their race and religion,' said Deputy Cmdr. Kyle Hartsock. He appealed for the public's help in tracking down the killer. A funeral was held on Friday in Albuquerque for the two most recent victims: Aftab Hussein, 41, and 27-year-old Muhammad Afzaal Hussain, both from Pakistan Altaf Hussein cries over the grave of his brother Aftab Hussein at Fairview...

    While some may see vape and e-cigarette devices as safe alternatives to cigarettes, experts warn that users can develop the devastating condition 'popcorn lung' - and that those who suffer the most severe case are unlikely to survive. Bronchiolitis obliterans, the official medical diagnosis for popcorn lung, occurs when a person's lungs become significantly scarred due to the inhalation of dangerous chemicals or via an infection of some sort.  Experts are warning that many users of electronic nicotine devices - like Juuls - are developing the condition at alarming rates, especially at younger ages where these types of conditions are rare. Dr Panagis Galiatsatos, director of the Tobacco Treatment Clinic at Johns Hopkins University tells DailyMail.com that those who suffer the most severe cases of the condition will likely die from respiratory failure within five years of it developing. Controversy around these devices has reemerged in recent weeks after the Food and Drug Administration chose to pull Juul products from shelves, before allowing the company temporary reprieve as it reevaluated its decision. Experts was that users of vape and e-cigarette nicotine...

    A mosque in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad during a severe sandstorm on May 1, 2020. Sandstorms in the country have been part of a series of mind-bending extreme weather events around the world.Ahmad Al-rubaye | Afp | Getty Images There's a 50-50 chance of surpassing the critical global heating threshold of 1.5 degrees Celsius over the next five years, according to a new study. Climate prediction centers, led by the U.K. Met Office, said in an annual update that the chance of the planet temporarily exceeding the key global temperature limit has significantly increased. As recently as 2015, climate scientists had said there was zero chance of surpassing 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels in the next five years. However, the likelihood of exceeding this level was upgraded to 10% in the years between 2017 and 2021, before climbing to nearly 50% for the 2022 to 2026 period. "It's a 50-50 call," the U.K. Met Office said in a press release. That comes shortly after the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned that the fight to keep global...

    Presidential Candidate Eric Zemmour has promised to kick out one million migrants from France within five years should he be elected. Eric Zemmour, one of two populist firebrands contesting France’s ongoing presidential election, has promised to remove one million migrants from France should he be voted into office. The promise comes as Zemmour has fallen in the polls compared to his right-wing rival, Marine Le Pen, who is also promising widespread deportations should she be elected French head of state. However, according to a report by Le Monde, Zemmour plans on founding an entirely new ministry to help the process of repatriating unwanted migrants, which he has dubbed the ‘Ministry of Remigration’. Under the new ministry, migrants with criminal backgrounds would be deported, partially through the use of return agreements put in place with Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia, Zemmour claims.

    Police in a Nassau County city made five arrests within several hours ranging from the theft of a catalytic converter to nabbing a man in an alleged stolen vehicle. The arrests began around 11 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1, in Long Beach when officers spotted a vehicle traveling without tail or headlights.  After pulling the vehicle over, officers determined the driver, Dominick Stewart, age 32, of Queens, did not have a valid driver's license, and the registration for the vehicle was fraudulent, said Long Beach Police Commissioner, Ronald J. Walsh. Stewart was arrested and charged with possessing a forged instrument, aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, and a motor vehicle violation of driving without a license. About 20 minutes later, officers received an alert for a stolen vehicle registered in Pennsylvania. After locating the vehicle, officers told the driver, Lura Kearse, age 34, of Uniondale, that the vehicle was stolen and placed him under arrest, police said. Upon locating the vehicle and arrival of backup officers informed the driver the vehicle was stolen and placed him under arrest. During his arrest,...

    A view of the Marathon Petroleum Corp's Los Angeles Refinery in Carson, California, April 25, 2020.Robyn Beck | AFP | Getty Images The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday voted to ban new oil and gas wells and to phase out existing wells over a period of five years, following decades of complaints by residents who have grappled with health problems from living near drilling sites. The measure, introduced by council members Nury Martinez and Paul Krekorian in December 2020, is part of a broader push by the county and the state of California to establish more distance between drilling and people and transition away from climate-changing fossil fuels. The region includes one of the largest urban oil fields in the country, with more than 5,000 active wells in LA County and more than 1,000 active or idle wells within city limits. More than half a million people in LA live within a quarter mile of active wells that release air pollutants like benzene, hydrogen sulfide, particulate matter and formaldehyde, and the pollution disproportionately affects Black and Latino residents.

    The White House is reportedly frustrated with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) wavering health guidelines and shifting messaging tactics. The CDC has altered its health guidelines multiple times over the course of the year, and CNN reported the White House is growing disconcerted over the CDC’s disconnect “between an inherently political operation and one driven by public health experts.” Moreover, within the CDC, scientists are reportedly disgruntled, seeing the ever-shifting health guidelines as overly “political” and based on “economic considerations” and not on science. A White House official told CNN the internal deliberations of the CDC are secret and go without feedback from “people who could help address real issues.” “They make insular decisions with the agency — or even within a small group within the agency — and then wait until the last minute to tell everyone it’s coming, so they rush it out without getting reasonable feedback from people who could help address real issues,” the official said.

    The NCAA has updated its recommended pandemic-related protocols for winter sports athletes and teams to follow the latest federal guidelines. Anyone will be considered fully vaccinated within two months of receiving a Johnson & Johnson single dose, within five months of completing both Pfizer doses or within six months of completing the Moderna doses. Under the guidelines released Thursday, anyone beyond those timeframes will have needed to receive a booster to be considered fully vaccinated. The NCAA is also recommending five days of quarantine after a positive test, which falls in line with recent guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The NCAA’s membership do not have to follow the guidance, but many have already taken similar steps when it comes to quarantine and isolation protocols. A growing number of schools are looking at a return to online classes and mandatory boosters for students and staff; Michigan and other schools are also requiring proof of vaccination for fans who hope to attend games or other big events.

    Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX, has reiterated his long-standing goal of landing humans on the surface of Mars within the next five to 10 years. The world's richest man also owns Tesla motors and the Boring company, and has a mission to make humanity a multi-planetary species, through a colony on Mars. He wants to achieve his goal as quickly as possible, to ensure Mars is sustainable before 'Earth gets too hot for life in about 500 million years.'  Musk made the remark during an appearance on the Lex Friedman Podcast, released yesterday, adding that the window is now open for humans to leave the Earth. The billionaire is worth an estimated $278 billion, and through SpaceX, is building the Starship rocket that will be able to take humanity to the Red Planet. However, Starship was hit by a setback this week, when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) pushed back the release of an environmental assessment of the proposed Starship orbital test in Boca Chica, Texas. This is now not due to be released until February 28, 2022, making the...
    Scientists have found worrying signs of weakness in the Antarctic ice shelf that holds back Antarctica’s most dangerous glaciers. Scientists have found evidence that the important ice shelf could potentially shatter in 3 to 5 years. This comes as a shock as the Antarctic ice shelf has until now been considered a very stable part of the Antarctic. The new data has shown that the warming ocean is eroding the eastern ice shelf from below, creating cracks that could more than likely spider out and put the shelf in danger of completely shattering. If the shelf shatters, it would spit icebergs into the water, raising the sea levels and putting millions of people in coastal areas at risk of flooding. Without the ice shelf, there would be a domino effect as it could cause ice cliffs to collapse in the Thwaites as well.  This is a grave concern for many scientists as the ice shelf holds a lot of responsibility and would cause severe and long-term damage if it were to shatter. The Antarctic has such a delicate...
    (CNN)As the rapidly heating planet alters the landscape of the Arctic region up north, scientists have discovered disturbing and alarming signs at the southern end of the planet, particularly in one of the ice shelves safeguarding the Antarctic's so-called "Doomsday glacier."Satellite images taken as recently as last month, which researchers presented at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union Monday, suggest the critical ice shelf keeping together the Thwaites glacier in western Antarctica — an important defense against global sea level rise — could shatter within the next three to five years. Antarctica's Thwaites glacier is known as the "Doomsday glacier," due to the serious risk it poses during its melting process. It has dumped billions of tons of ice into the sea, and its demise could lead to irreversible changes throughout the planet. The glacier, which equals the size of Florida or Great Britain, already accounts for about 4% of annual global sea level rise, loses roughly 50 billion tons of ice each year, and is becoming highly vulnerable to the climate crisis. The fall of the ice...
    The sun sets at the Davis Station, Antarctica.Rachael Robertson An ice shelf holding a critical glacier in Antarctica could shatter within the next five years, scientists warned on Monday during an American Geophysical Union meeting. The Thwaites Glacier is a Florida-sized sheet that's already responsible for about 4% of global annual sea level rise as it slowly melts into the ocean. But the glacier sits on an ice shelf vulnerable to failing due to newly detected fissures on its surface and a major fracture across the entire shelf, according to satellite images. Hotter ocean temperatures, fueled in part by human-caused climate change, are eroding the eastern ice shelf. If the shelf breaks apart, the glacier's contribution to sea level rise could eventually increase by as much as 25%, the scientists said. Ice loss in Antarctica has been growing worse in recent years and research suggests that a dangerous amount of sea level will occur if global warming reaches about three degrees Celsius (5.4 degrees Fahrenheit) above preindustrial levels. The Earth has already has surpassed one degree Celsius of warming.More from CNBC Climate:Read...

    Manhattan parents were outraged when they learned that city officials stuck five registered sex offenders, including two convicted pedophiles, into a homeless shelter last year about a block away from an elementary school. City officials placed registered sex offenders Thomas Libby, Lonzel McNeil, Lee Jackson, Francis Harrison and Curtis Thompson in the Radisson Hotel at 52 William St. in 2020 amid the pandemic.  The shelter is a one-minute walk away from the $36,000-a-year Pine Street Elementary School, in Manhattan's Financial District, and both McNeil and Jackson have history of sex offense crimes involving minor. 'I am not opposed to helping those in need and providing shelters for the homeless in my community, but I am against placing violent pedophiles with a block of schools,' one local mother told the New York Post.

    Women who live within five miles of an abortion clinic are significantly more likely to have the procedure, a new study finds.   Researchers from the University of California-San Francisco looked at county-level abortion data across the U.S. from 2015. They compared the abortion rate of each county to the distance of the closest abortion clinic, and noted the population of women over the age of 15 in each.    One abortion took place for every 47 women who lived within five miles of an abortion clinic that year. Comparatively, one abortion took place for every 249 women who lived over 120 miles from a clinic, a five-fold difference. The research shows the staggering factor distance and ease of travel can have on whether or not someone has an abortion, and that laws that close abortion clinics are effective in preventing women from receiving the procedure.  San Francisco based researchers found a clear correlation between the likelihood of a woman receiving an abortion, and the distance she resides from an abortion clinic Aggregate data from counties who report abortion data,...

    President Biden sent mixed messages in remarks Monday, announcing that most adults in the US will be eligible for vaccinations in three weeks, but also saying that states should pause their reopening efforts. Speaking at the White House, the president said “at least 90 percent of all adults in this country will be eligible to be vaccinated by April 19.” Biden also said his administration is working on an initiative to make sure a vaccination site is within five miles of 90 percent of all Americans by April 19. “Three weeks from today 90 percent of adult people who are 18 and over will be eligible to get vaccinated and 90 percent of all Americans will be living within five miles of a place they can get a shot,” he said. As he walked away after his remarks, a reporter shouted out to ask if he believed states should pause reopenings. “Yes,” Biden replied. The president, speaking shortly after Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky warned of “impending doom” as COVID cases begin rising again, addressed the nation’s...
    A nationwide survey from former President Donald Trump’s pollster examined the five different “tribes” within the Republican Party. The survey, conducted by Fabrizio, Lee and Associates, examines the different groups’ opinions on the GOP, prominent Republicans, the Party’s future and Trump himself. The five “tribes” discussed included: “Trump Boosters,” “Diehard Trumpers,” “Post-Trump GOP,” “Never Trump” and “Infowars GOP.” Despite the five distinct groups, all but the “Never Trump” group held an overwhelmingly favorable view of the former president, according to the survey. Among Republicans overall Trump’s favorability rating was 81%. “Trump Boosters” made up 28% of respondents and was the largest group. The group consisted of Republicans who overwhelmingly supported the former president and believed he did a good job while in office, but were more supportive of the Republican Party than they were of Trump himself. However, while they said that they were more loyal to the party, 55% said that they would vote for Trump if the Republican primary were held today. “Diehard Trumpers” made up 27% of respondents, and unlike “Trump Boosters” were more supportive of the...

Thus, “it is expected that this figure will decrease to only 19% for institutional investors and 25% for private investors in the next five years”, underlines the first edition of a study by the asset management company Robeco which analyzes the positioning of investors in the face of climate risk.

    In the stock market, each tool has a specific potential return, risk level, and attractiveness to investors. While stocks are very popular, they can require people to handle various concepts to understand how the value of the portfolio can change. Then there are exchange-traded mutual funds (ETFs), which have a wide variety of assets within themselves. For this reason there are several types, each with its own characteristics: Bond ETF As their name implies, they have a variety of debt contracts from governments and companies, as well as local administrations. They tend to be the lowest risk. At the same time, they are also usually the lowest performing, compared to other options. Industry ETF Perhaps the most common among ETFs, they basically have shares of several firms in the same sector. For example, companies in the banking, energy or technology sectors. They can be a quick way to dedicate a portfolio to a specific sector of the economy. Commodity ETF As its name implies, these funds allow grouping several basic resources, such as gold or oil.

    One in five diabetes patients hospitalized with COVID-19 die within 28 days of admission, an ongoing study found, according to numerous sources. The study by the University of Nantes in France also found that one in eight diabetes patients admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 were still in the hospital 28 days after being admitted. The results are from the CORONADO study that analyzes the outcomes of patients with diabetes who are admitted to the hospital with COVID-19, according to a news release from the medical journal Diabetologia, published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

    THE Premier League have pledged to have at least one BAME person on their board within five years as part of their No Room for Racism action plan. The Prem have made six commitments to improve diversity within the game – with the headline being new targets at executive level at the league. 1Prem chief Richard Masters launches No Room For Racism action planCredit: Getty They want one woman and one BAME to be part of their board by 2016, with a target set for female representation at 40 per cent within ten years. And the plan is to have 20 per cent of the board coming from a BAME background by that time, which is almost certain to mean the size of executive increases from four currently in place. But the targets are only for the league as a business itself to fulfil – there is nothing in place which mandates any of the clubs to increase representation from the black community in senior positions of their own. Instead they have pledged to offer support to help clubs set...
    Some babies develop COVID-19 within hours of their birth, but it's not yet clear if the deadly virus was passed on during pregnancy. A University of NSW-led review of existing COVID-19 infection data found five out of 139 newborns from infected mothers were diagnosed within several hours or just days after birth. But confirming COVID-19 transmission from mother to newborn is difficult to verify and further research is needed to find out, senior study author Dr Nusrat Homaira of UNSW said in a statement on Wednesday. Some babies develop COVID-19 within hours of their birth, but it's not yet clear if the deadly virus was passed on during pregnancy (stock) 'More research is needed to understand if children born to women who have Covid-19 during pregnancy have an increased risk of acquiring the infection and what the long-term outcomes are for newborns with the disease,' she said. The findings could influence Australia's plans to vaccinate the population against the deadly disease in terms of vaccinating young children and mums-to-be. 'As the vaccine is being rolled out to the whole...

    Women are 20 per cent more likely to die in the first five years after their first heart attack than men, a study has concluded. Researchers from Canada studied 45,064 patients from Canada who had been hospitalised after their first heart attack, monitoring them each for around six years.  The team found that women are receiving poorer treatment than men on average — with less surgeries performed, specialist consultations and medications prescribed. Women are 20 per cent more likely to die in the first five years after their first heart attack than men, a study has concluded. Pictured, a woman experiencing chest pains (stock image) Heart attacks come in two forms — a life-threatening form called an ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, or STEMI, and a less-severe version called non-STEMI, which is more common. In their study, the team found that the development of heart failure after a STEMI or a non-STEMI — whether in hospital of following discharge — remains higher for women than for men. Specifically, women were 9.4 per cent more likely to die in hospital following a...
    THE Navy will install 4,000mph hypersonic missiles on his high-tech submarines by 2025, a top Vice Admiral has said. Vice Adm. Johnny Wolfe, head of the Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs, said the futuristic rockets will replace long-range nuclear weapons on attack subs. 5US attack submarines will come equipped with hypersonic missiles by 2025Credit: US Navy Photo Hypersonic missiles can travel more than five times faster than the speed of sound. Wolfe said installing the weapons “is very much a priority within the Navy” after conducting “extremely successful” flight tests. Speaking yesterday to the Naval Submarine League, he said the missiles would be deployed to the Ohio-class guided-missile submarines (SSGNs) by 2025. The US currently has four SSGNs. He said that by 2028 the weaponry, dubbed Conventional Prompt Strike (CSP) capability, would also be installed in more attack submarines. Wolfe said: “In Conventional Prompt Strike we are focused on how do we … take all of the successes that we’ve had in the research development and flight testing and start production and transition that into a military capability that we can...
