    The City University of New York deleted a profile of a graduate who was the youngest member of Johnny Depp's legal team in his defamation trial against Amber Heard.  Yarleyn Mena, 29,  a 2015 graduate of CUNY's Hunter College and a Brown Rudnick LLP associate, was originally touted for her work in helping Depp win a $10.35 million verdict in the heated trial that captured the nation's attention.  The show of support for the graduate, however, went out the door after CUNY said it received concerns from students and faculty over the profile piece as they offered an apology.  'We understand the strong negative emotions this article elicited and apologize for publishing the item,' the public university system said in a statement replacing the link to the story on Mena.  'The article was not meant to convey support for Mr. Depp, implicitly or otherwise, or to call into question any allegations that were made by Amber Heard,' CUNY added.  'Domestic violence is a serious issue in our society and we regret any pain this article may have caused.'  Yarleyn Mena,...
    Podcaster Joe Rogan slammed President Joe Biden for denying that the US is in a recession after two consecutive quarters of negative growth.  Rogan, 54, claimed the Biden Administration was trying to cover up the recession in order to make themselves look good on Tuesday's episode of the Joe Rogan Experience.  'They're literally changing the definition [of recession], which is terrible and it should be pushed back against in a big way.  'It is something people should get angry about, like: 'Hey, you're f**king with definitions in order to pretend you're doing a good job."'   In a July 21 blog post, the White House claimed that 'while some maintain that two consecutive quarters of falling real GDP constitute a recession, that is neither the official definition nor the way economists evaluate the state of the business cycle.'  The White House went on to say that it was measured by a more 'holistic' approach, using data from the 'labor market, consumer and business spending, industrial production, and incomes' to measure an economic recession. 
    Texas Senator Ted Cruz appeared to take a shot at President Joe Biden on Saturday by sharing a clip of his Democratic predecessor Bill Clinton stating that a recession is 'two quarters' of economic contraction. The Republican lawmaker retweeted a video clip of Clinton sitting at the White House on December 19, 2000, alongside incoming Republican President George W. Bush. Asked about his fears of an oncoming recession, Clinton replied, 'Well a recession is two quarters in a row of negative growth.' 'Bill Clinton was right,' Cruz wrote on Twitter. It comes as the Biden administration continues to deny that the US economy is in a recession, despite it shrinking for a second straight quarter late last week. President Joe Biden and his officials point to metrics like record job growth and steady levels of consumer spending to argue that the country is not yet in a recession - and previously claiming that such a downturn is not inevitable. The Clinton clip shared by Cruz goes on to show the former president presenting an optimistic view of the economy under...
    While the U.S. economy contracted for the second straight quarter according to preliminary estimates, President Joe Biden released a statement Thursday morning that did not include the word "recession." The country's GDP fell at a 1.6% annualized rate in the first quarter and by 0.9% in the second rate, meeting the common definition of a recession. But the Biden administration has been hard at work for the last week arguing that isn't really the case. ECONOMY IS RECESSION RANGE, WITH GDP CONTRACTING 0.9% IN SECOND QUARTER "Coming off of last year’s historic economic growth — and regaining all the private sector jobs lost during the pandemic crisis — it’s no surprise that the economy is slowing down as the Federal Reserve acts to bring down inflation," Biden's statement read. "But even as we face historic global challenges, we are on the right path and we will come through this transition stronger and more secure." Biden's statement avoids the R-word throughout, touting instead job market growth, the 3.6% unemployment rate, and the more than 1 million jobs...
    The fact that liberals and progressives — as well as right-wing Never Trump conservatives — were glad to see former President Donald Trump depart the White House on January 20, 2021 doesn’t mean that they believe President Joe Biden should be exempt from scrutiny. Many Never Trumpers who generally like Biden’s response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have been scathing critics of the way he handled the United States’ withdrawal from Afghanistan; many liberals and progressives wish that Biden favored a government-operated “Medicare-for-all” health care system rather than funding Obamacare. But Marvin Kalb, in an article published by the Brookings Institution’s website on July 21, argues that “bothsideism” serves no useful purpose for the media when it comes to Biden or any other Democrat. In fact, Kalb — a Brookings senior fellow known for his focus on foreign policy — describes “bothsideism” as a “journalistic curse” and stresses that there shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to covering politicians. “Not only does criticism not come in equal shapes and sizes, appropriate for all presidents and both political parties...
    A psychologist has revealed why people are often more drawn to negative thoughts than positive ones, to the extent it can affect their mental health. Dr Gurpreet Kaur, a chartered clinical psychologist based in Surrey, shared her thoughts in a recent TikTok video on her channel, where she posts educational content about mental health topics. In the clip, she addressed a question asked by one of her followers, which touched on the topic of why some people ruminate on negative thoughts, which in turn affects their mood.  The question said: 'Why does our mind want to destroy us?' A psychologist has revealed why people are often more drawn to negative thoughts than positive ones, to the extent it can affect their mental health. Stock image Dr Kaur explained that it is down to a 'negativity bias', where people are more likely to fixate on negative thoughts than positive ones.  However, this behaviour can be changed and improved.   'If you get something positive and negative, and they are on an equal par, we are going to be naturally attuned towards looking...
    President Joe Biden has seen relatively few leaks during his first year -- however among the most visible cracks in his White House have been reports that Kamala Harris' staffers are unhappy with their treatment and the vice president's lengthy portfolio of issues President Joe Biden threatened to fire White House staff who were found to have leaked negative information about Vice President Kamala Harris after her gaffe-riddled trip to Guatemala, reports from a new book claimed on Tuesday. The first year of the Biden-Harris administration saw relatively few media leaks, an early morning Politico Playbook report noted, especially when compared to their Republican predecessors. But a forthcoming book from two New York Times journalists appears to uncover resentment and frustration between Biden and Harris' teams that forced even the president himself to get involved. Among the chief gripes Harris staffers had during their first year in office was a reportedly 'impossible' portfolio.  The president has on multiple occasions been accused of punting critical but over-broad tasks to his deputy, notably including solving the southwestern border crisis, voting rights, leading...
    One of the TikTok stars called upon to spread President Joe Biden's claim that Vladimir Putin and the invasion of Ukraine are responsible for inflation blamed misogyny for the negative reaction she received.  Ellie Zeiler, 18, said thousands of people have shamed her for her pro-Biden TikTok clip where she discussed soaring gas prices and Russia's effect on it earlier this week. The teen, who has more than 10 million followers for her fashion posts, claimed that out of all the 30 TikTok-ers who were contacted by the White House to attend the briefing unpaid, she has been singled out for being a young woman.  'Misogyny is very much alive and well in the media,' Zeiler said in a TikTok post on Thursday as she claimed reporters harped on her despite the fact that she was not the only young woman deployed in the White House's plan.  'Isn’t it interesting that out of all 30 creators, I’m the only one being body shamed and discredited for being a young woman interested in politics on social media.  'In the last couple...
    Former President Barack Obama announced Sunday afternoon: 'I just tested positive for COVID', but said Michelle is still clear of coronavirus. 'I've had a scratchy throat for a couple days, but am feeling fine otherwise,' the former president tweeted in describing his symptoms.  'Michelle and I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative. It's a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven't already, even as cases go down,' Obama tweeted.  He did not mention whether either of his daughters Malia, 23, and Sasha, 20 were tested for the virus, but both are currently in college and likely away at school.  The diagnosis comes at a time when case rates and deaths in the U.S. are on the decline following the winter Omicron surge. It also comes as COVID restrictions are relaxing in the U.S.  There were still 38,482 new COVID-19 cases reported on Friday, according to the most recently available data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  The popular Democrat was criticized in August of last year for hosting a glamorous birthday bash in...
    In a potential breaththrough for monitoring animal wellbeing, scientists say they have translated pig grunts into emotions for the first time.  Researchers trained an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm with 7,414 recordings of pig noises, gathered throughout the life stages of 411 pigs – including slaughter.   The algorithm could potentially be used to build an app for pig farmers that detects whether the animals are happy just from the noise they're making.   With enough data to train the algorithm, the method could also be used to better understand the emotions of other mammals, experts say.  Using thousands of acoustic recordings gathered throughout the lives of pigs, from their births to deaths, an international team of researchers is the first in the world to translate pig grunts into actual emotions across an extended number of conditions and life stages This image shows the classification of pig calls to 'valence and context', based on the algorithm.

    GONZALO HIGUAIN has been labelled 'pathetic' and 'terrible' by a fellow MLS star. The Argentine veteran drew a blank in Inter Miami's season opener against the Chicago Fire this week. 3Gonzalo Higuain's body language has been criticisedCredit: AP Higuain, who skippers Phil Neville's side, cut a frustrated figure up top during the 0-0 draw. And his 'negative' body language has been savaged by Chicago ace Fabian Hebers. The German, who played the first 80 minutes for the away side, was asked on his Zee Soccer Podcast if he swapped shirts with former Chelsea and Real Madrid striker Higuain after the game. He scathingly replied: "F*** that guy, man. "This guy is so pathetic. Obviously, he's a presence on the field and every time a team-mate of his makes a wrong pass or something or doesn't pass the ball exactly to him, he's just standing there looking in a negative mood.

    As Florida once again becomes the top state in the nation for coronavirus cases U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz is ratting out a local music festival that is requiring attendees to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test. The Florida Republican congressman sent fellow Republican, Gov. Ron DeSantis, a letter on his official congressional letterhead stating the 30A Songwriters Festival is in violation of DeSantis’ executive order for trying to protect attendees and participants from the deadly virus. The festival is funded in part, Gaetz says, by taxpayers. “Vaccine passports should not be funded by taxpayer dollars,” Gaetz writes – despite the unvaccinated being able to provide proof of having a recent negative test. READ: There are disturbing parallels between the 2020s and 1940s in the U.S. That’s not good enough for the pro-COVID congressman. “Your executive order…does not permit different treatment for the vaccinated and unvaccinated,” Gaetz writes.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci takes part in a meeting with U.S. President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris and other members of the White House COVID-19 Response Team on developments related to the Omicron COVID-19 variant from the State Dining Room at the White House in Washington, U.S., December 9, 2021.Leah Millis | Reuters The U.S. is considering recommending that individuals exposed to Covid end isolation if they've tested negative for the virus after five days, U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci said Sunday. The move could come after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention faced harsh feedback for its decision last week to reduce Covid-19 isolation periods for asymptomatic people to five days from 10, even if the individual continues to test positive. "There has been some concern about why we don't ask people at that five-day period to get tested," Fauci said on ABC's "This Week." "That is something that is now under consideration." "The CDC is very well aware that there has been some pushback about that. Looking at it again, there may be an...
    VIDEO1:4601:46Jim Cramer suggests investors buy Friday's market dip a little bit at a timeSquawk on the Street CNBC's Jim Cramer said on Friday he's looking at this week's stock market drop as a buying opportunity. "We're trying to figure out what the heck to buy, not what to sell," Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street," as the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq were all falling more than 1%. "I am looking and looking and looking," he added. A short time later, Cramer told his "CNBC Investing Club" members that he added to his charitable trust holding in Boeing, which now makes up more than 2.5% of the portfolio. The "Mad Money" host feels there's still a good chance of getting a so-called Santa Claus rally, saying on TV that historically rallying into year-end has basically been a "perfect call since 2008." For other ideas on what to buy, Cramer said, "Take a look at the banks. Take a look at the chip stocks. Take a look at the oils. They're all starting to act...
    It’s the kind of thing that regularly happens in Russia, China or North Korea. When journalists stray too far above their totalitarian-controlled station and dare to hold their political leaders to any form of proper account, they get a visit or phone call from shady Government officials. In the covert conversations, the errant journalists are informed that their entirely accurate and justified criticism is in fact totally wrong and unjustified, and the ‘truth’ is that everything is going fantastically well in the country thanks to the masterful leadership. The tone of these messages is polite but firm, with just a hint of menace. The journalists are left in no doubt there may be ‘unfortunate repercussions’ should they decide to resist the directive to ‘re-calibrate’ their coverage of the regime. Journalists in the United States are allowed to be as critical of Governments as they wish without fear of being killed for what they say or write. Nor should they ever have to worry about being lent on by Government officials to censor their criticisms. Yet that’s exactly what’s been happening...
    Sleep deprivation, a negative attitude and playing mind games when dating are the top three ways known to reduce sex appeal. Leading relationship expert Louanne Ward, from Perth, Australia, said sex appeal hones in on key characteristics of one person - including facial composition, life stability, kissing technique, voice and smell. But to boost your sex appeal, it's important to manage your stress levels, limit complaining to others and take note of your posture.  'Body language has a direct correlation with charisma, and showing positive physical indicators like a smile, bright disposition, expressive eyes or friendly voice can significantly determine one's sex appeal,' Ms Ward wrote.  Relationship expert Louanne Ward (pictured) has revealed the top characteristics that lower your sex appeal - including body language, sleep deprivation and playing mind games 1.

    Country singer Travis Tritt has canceled tour dates in an act of protest against vaccine and coronavirus testing mandates.  On Monday, the performer announced on his website that he has canceled upcoming shows in Muncie, Indiana on Oct. 23, Philadelphia, Mississippi on November 6, Peoria, Illinois on Nov 11 and Louisville, Kentucky on Nov. 13. All of which were reportedly requiring COVID-19 mandates in some form or another.  "I’m putting my money where my mouth is and announcing that any venue or promoter mandating masks, requiring vaccinations, or pushing COVID testing protocols on my fans will not be tolerated," he said in a statement. "Any show I have booked that discriminates against concert-goers by requiring proof of vaccination, a COVID test, or a mask is being canceled immediately." The 58-year-old continued by noting that he believes there are more than enough venues around the country that are willing to ignore COVID-19 safety guidelines that he will continue to book and perform at.  COUNTRY STAR TRAVIS TRITT INVOLVED IN FATAL ACCIDENT, 2 DEAD AND ONE INJURED Travis Tritt won't perform at...
    Friday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” network anchor Maria Bartiromo reacted to the Labor Department reporting a 61% labor participation rate in the United States. Bartiromo said the jobs report showed the United States had created a “welfare state” as a result of all of the stimulus money “being thrown at people.” “Unfortunately, there are 11 million jobs, but employers can’t get the people to come back to work to take the jobs,” Bartiromo stated. “So, you can have all the jobs in the world, but if an employer actually can’t find that skilled person to put in that job, you are out of a job, and you are out of a person getting that job. So, that’s why I’m focusing on this labor participation rate. It sounds complicated. It’s not. Sixty-one percent of those people are actually participating. That means they’re either looking for a job or they’re in the workforce right now. This is the number that sticks out to you in this report because it underlines the negative impact of all of that stimulus being thrown at people.” “Even...

    The immobilization of our vehicle it is a serious cause for concern. If the agents decide to physically deprive us of the possibility of driving our car, it is because there are compelling reasons for them, whether at an administrative level, at the level of the driver’s state – presence of alcohol or drugs in the body, without going any further – or for serious deficiencies in the vehicle. In the list of 10 reasons why a car can be immobilized, we want to delve into the vehicle physical deficiencies. Which are? For what deficiencies can it be immobilized?

    As much as Hollywood does its best to deliver quality movies to viewers, although sometimes it doesn’t seem like it tries very hard, there are movies that when they hit theaters we discover that they have failed and others that seem destined to fail since the beginning. very moment they are announced.

    PROVINCETOWN (CBS) — A coyote that bit a small child on North Herring Cove Beach in Provincetown this week has tested negative for rabies. The U.S National Park Service made the announcement Friday morning. The biting incident took place around 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The child, whose age has not been made public, was taken to Cape Cod Hospital with injuries deemed by the Park Service as “non-life-threatening.” Park Rangers later shot the coyote, and then found the dead body of the animal on Thursday. Cape Cod National Seashore Ranger Ryan Wright says there have recently been more reports than normal about aggressive coyotes. He advises that people “do not try and feed these animals because the progression of behavior is that they lose this fear of human beings”.

On Tuesday, the 35-year-old star took to her Instagram story to speak directly to fans as she lounged in a multi-colored robe to share "two things that I think are funny right now." "One: People in my comments that are mad that there's not enough angry comments in my comments," she said.

    Kamala Harris did get tested for coronavirus following a meeting with the runaway Texas Democrats, the White House revealed Monday, but her office insists it had nothing to do with the potential exposure to two of the five infected lawmakers.  Jen Psaki, Joe Biden's spokesperson, told reporters during a briefing Monday that the vice president did get tested and 'there was no detection of COVID-19.' A White House official told DailyMail.com on background that Harris always intended to get tested for the virus before her previously scheduled routine doctor's appointment at Walter Reed Medical Center over the weekend. They also insisted that the vice president's test had nothing to do with the fact that she met with at least two Texas state lawmakers who later tested positive for COVID-19. The two are not connected, the official said. Psaki assured on Monday: 'We take these precautions incredibly seriously and abide by the health, the guidance of our health and medical experts. 'We, of course, hope everybody abides by public health guidelines,' she continued. 'That's what we certainly recommend, but the vice president...

    A Social Security Administration office in San Francisco.Getty Images When the Covid-19 pandemic set in last year, one of the unintentional effects from the deep economic downturn included a potential reduction in Social Security benefits for one group of people. And now, as the U.S. economy is beginning to repair itself, signs point to those benefits perhaps falling less dramatically, if at all. Average wages in the U.S. fell sharply in 2020 as the economy came to a near halt amid a national shutdown. Those numbers — known as the average wage index, or AWI — are used to calculate Social Security benefits. The 2020 data applies to people born in 1960, who would first be eligible to claim their monthly checks when they turn 62 in 2022. Your total monthly benefit is a formula based on the total number of years worked, your wages over that time, the AWI and other criteria, such as the age at which you claim.

    (Photo: Morsa Images via .) Teleworking has come to stay, at least sporadically, and judging by the data from the new CIS barometer, this change in trend would be to the liking of citizens. According to the report Trends in the digital society during the covid-19 pandemic, published this Friday, 49.9% of Spaniards positively value teleworking. Among the advantages that respondents cited are avoiding travel (76.8%), favoring family conciliation (75.5%) and owning their time to organize their schedule (63.5%). On the other side of the scale are 19.2% of citizens who believe that telework is negative for workers because it encourages isolation (69.4%) and they work more hours than established (63.4%) . The labor scene has changed radically since March, when teleworking was only common in 2.5% of Spaniards. That percentage, according to this study, has skyrocketed in the last year among the workforce to 46.3%. 62.2% of those surveyed believe that teleworking has been positive for companies because it reduces costs Judging by the data released by the CIS, this change in trend has helped Spanish families, since...
    New York : In my college years I suffered from bullying. This was my first contact with the “bad vibes” of other people. Later, in my adulthood, I also faced challenging situations in the work environment. Life is made up of challenging situations since each and every one of us has a free will (in my opinion, this, after being able to live one more day of life every time I open my eyes, is the most wonderful gift that God gave us to co-create with Him our experiences in this world). And precisely because of that free will, each being has the power to decide how to act, how to speak, how to feel and how to behave with others. The good news, even if it doesn’t seem like it sometimes, because many things happen in the world every day, is that there are more good human beings than those who are not. Even so, sometimes people have to face experiences with others that are not the most pleasant because they are born from low vibration feelings –...

This is likely the first recorded case of COVID-19 being transmitted via organ donation, according to a report about the case by doctors at the University of Michigan.

According to Abisay Sosa in an interview for the Ventaneando program, after meeting the former RBD through an application, she decided to go out with him and have a sexual encounter, from which her contagion derived. What happened to us occurred when there was a closer encounter, I did completely agree to do so, but here the fact is not that I agreed or not, but that he was aware that he was already a carrier of a disease and his responsibility was to have told me or simply to protect himself and me ”, explained Sosa in the television broadcast. Abisay said that he is sure he was infected through Christian because the people with whom he had previously had unprotected sex tested negative for HIV. “The first two people with whom I had unprotected relationships, I spoke with them, one told me that he was fine,...

You have excess gas and bloating Bloating occurs when large amounts of air or gas build up in the gastrointestinal tract. Gas is normal, it enters...
    Bad experiences with food, like a dodgy curry that makes us ill for days, triggers a switch in our brains that means we never want to eat it again, a study reveals.   UK researchers have managed to replicate the effect of a negative experience on eating behaviour, using sugar-loving snails as models in the lab.  They used 'aversive training', which involved tapping the snails on the head when sugar appeared, as a proxy for food poisoning in humans, while being filmed.   Aversive training flicked an appetite-suppressing switch that meant the snails refused to feed on the sugar, even when hungry.  The experts think something similar is happening, leading to 'persistent physiological change' that's specific to a certain food for the rest of our lives.     That dodgy chicken tikka masala from four years ago may make us never want to eat the dish ever again - and researchers think they know why  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next A 'game-changer' in the fight against obesity: Weekly jab...

    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) criticized President Biden on Tuesday, questioning why the U.S. is requiring international travelers to undergo a coronavirus test and wield negative results but allowing illegal aliens at the U.S.-Mexico border to enter the country without testing. “Can’t fly into USA w/o showing negative test for virus but Pres Biden will let ppl who illegally walked across the border do so w/o testing,” the 87-year-old lawmaker said. “Is that protecting our citizens?”: Can’t fly into USA w/o showing negative test for virus but Pres Biden will let ppl who illegally walked across the border do so w/o testing. Is that protecting our citizens? — ChuckGrassley (@ChuckGrassley) February 9, 2021 Last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that it would require international travelers entering the United States, including U.S. citizens, to present proof of a negative coronavirus test prior to boarding flights en route to the country. The requirement went into effect on January 26. In a guidance last updated February 5, the CDC advised: If you plan to travel internationally, you will need...
    Diego Pablo Simeone, coach of the Atlético de Madrid, he lamented the way his team was left without two points that had been worked after turning the scoreboard against him Celta Vigo. MATCH ANALYSIS “I have a lot of positive things left. The opportunity of the boys who come without playing and played a very good game. The second part of Lodi, Kondogbia, Torreira… Correa’s confirmation that he works and demands the rival from where he can appear. Those are important things for the future. The complex match began. They have a good associated game. I think there were not so many goal situations in the first half for anyone. But they did feel more comfortable with possession. In the second part we improved with the change of system to have one more in the middle and take one from behind. Kondogbia and Torreira managed to press higher. The second goal arrived, we took the game within what was seen, quite well. And they trying to hurt in some situation. They did it on that...

    Kansas City nearly paid the “Patrick Price” for a haircut this week ahead of Super Bowl 55. The team’s barber — scheduled to cut hair of more than 20 Chiefs players and staff members — tested positive for COVID-19 and nearly caused the team to force quarterback Mahomes to be deemed a close contact. That raises the question of why Kansas City would allow the barber to cut players’ hair before confirming they were negative for the coronavirus. (To be fair, the barber had tested negative for the disease for five days straight prior to the positive test). Regardless, an unintentionally funny detail from the episode is that the barber was pulled midway through cutting center Daniel Kilgore’s hair. Though he was deemed a close contact, Kilgore at least had fun with the situation. What’s less funny and more spooky is the fact that it was eerily predicted in the form of a mean tweet. Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday revealed that Mahomes — who reportedly was next in line for his cut before the barber was pulled — joined an all-NFL...
    (CNN)More than 82% of American doctors say they believe patients with significant disabilities have a worse quality of life than people who don't have disabilities, according to a new study. Those negative perceptions can have big impacts on the quality of care patients with disabilities receive. Researchers at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital found that negative perceptions of patients with disabilities are widespread among physicians -- to a degree they say is "disturbing." Just 56.5% of doctors strongly agreed that they welcomed patients with disabilities into their practices, and only 40.7% of doctors surveyed reported feeling very confident about their ability to provide the same quality of care to patients with disabilities, according to the study published in the journal Health Affairs. "You would think that doctors should be very confident in their ability to provide equal quality care to all the patients that they agree to see, so that's a troubling finding," said lead study author Dr. Lisa Iezzoni, a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. Assumptions lead to worse careRead MoreNegative physician attitudes lead to...
    The president of the United States, Joe Biden, presented his strategy to face covid-19 on Thursday. Miami World / infobae In a ceremony at the White House, the president harshly questioned the approach of his predecessor, Donald Trump, and signed a series of decrees to implement the keys to his plan. These include the need for those arriving in the country to present negative tests and quarantine; the order to set up vaccination centers throughout the country – to speed up inoculation and reach the goal of administering 100 million doses in its first 100 days – and the requirement to use masks in federal jurisdictions. The requirement for a test prior to boarding the ship had already been ordered by the previous government, but isolation was only a recommendation. Biden once again emphasized the current impact of the pandemic in the country and backed his criticism of the previous government with figures: “We could not count on the federal government to act with the necessary speed and we see the consequences of those failures: we have 4 percent of...

    Violent or other negative articles on well-known news websites have no harmful effect on the brands advertising alongside them, a study found today. The content around adverts does not matter as long as they are placed in trusted environments rather than on social media, according to the publisher Reach. It comes after publishers saw digital revenues hit by restrictions on adverts next to Covid-19 content last year which came at a time of huge audience demand for news. The 'In Safe Hands' report released today tested the claim that advertising against 'intense' stories in a trusted news environment does not negatively impact brands. It carried out a 'forced exposure study' on the impact of advertising alongside news content of three levels of intensity or 'safety' - low, medium and high. Readers of Reach's national websites were shown content of one of the three levels of intensity of 'safety' - low, medium and high - and had the reactions displayed in the graphic above Reach said responses to the news content did not transfer to the advertised brands when...
