    Morsa Images | Digitalvision | Getty Images There's no turning back from the workplace changes brought about by the "Great Resignation," according to the expert who coined the term. Organizational psychologist Anthony Klotz predicted in May 2021 that the Covid-19 pandemic would lead to pent-up resignations. Since that time, millions of Americans have quit their jobs. A record 4.5 million walked away in March alone. The initial surge was due to the backlog of resignations since workers weren't quitting during the height of the pandemic, he explained. They were also burned out, unhappy and reevaluating their lives. Many employers have adapted to meet workers' needs, albeit it slowly in some cases. They are now addressing employee wellness, including mental and financial health, and are offering remote work opportunities. "The pandemic brought the future of work into the present of work," said Klotz, a management professor at Texas A&M University's Mays Business School.

    THE list of the top 20 Omicron symptoms has been updated, with two new signs of the variant you shouldn't ignore. Brits have been logging how they feel before and after testing positive on the ZOE Covid Symptom Study app. 2The top 20 symptoms of Omicron have changed slightly this weekCredit: Getty - Contributor It's especially helpful to know what symptoms they have when infected with the variant, as it helps others look for clues they too could be ill. Each week experts working on the study reveal the top 20 symptoms seen in Brits. This week earache and unusual joint points have been added to the list, with feeling down and loss of smell removed. Still in the top 20 are symptoms like runny nose, headache, fatigue, altered smell and skipped meals. Professor Tim Spector, lead scientist on the ZOE Covid Study app, said: "We have things like cough at number six, and other ones there that you might recognise worth looking at.  "You've got all these muscle aches, altered smell, skipped meals, chest pain, earache and lots of...
    Responding to questions about whether the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) should have been surging resources for COVID-19 testing months ago – before the omicron variant of the coronavirus began to infect individuals nationwide – Administrator Deanne Criswell said Friday that the agency was working to support states based on what they had requested.  Speaking at the White House press briefing, the leader said FEMA's role has always been to support hospitals, schools and public service agencies.  FEDERAL COVID TESTING WEBSITE LAUNCHES NEXT WEEK, 4 TESTS PER HOME "We have been supporting them through the delivery and reimbursement for PPE, for the medical staff that we're sending out. That has not changed and that support will continue," she replied.  "And, the additional support that's coming out for the general population is something that FEMA does not participate in and those are the items that you're hearing are going to be announced and available to the general public later," Criswell noted.  FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell, accompanied by White House press secretary Jen Psaki, left, speaks at a press briefing at...
    Washington (CNN)President Biden's efforts to remove the Senate filibuster in order to address voting rights was dealt another blow Thursday when Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema said she would not back off her position to uphold the current filibuster rules.Currently, 60 votes are needed to prevent a filibuster. The change in question, which is often referred to as the "nuclear option," would essentially do away with the filibuster and allow the Senate to pass legislation with just a simple majority of 51. To pass anything legislatively on voting rights, Senate Democrats would need that change to be made since they have no Republican support for the measure. Related interactive: Congress is at the mercy of one Senate rule, the filibuster Along with Sinema, one of the most vocal Democratic opponents of this proposal is Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia. When asked to explain his stance Monday, Manchin implied the rules shouldn't be changed because the 60-vote threshold is "what we've always had for 232 years." Facts First: Manchin is wrong. The 60-vote threshold required to invoke cloture (which...
    RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel criticized President Biden for his response to the rising number of omicron cases, saying his messaging has been unclear. On "Fox & Friends" Wednesday, McDaniel noted that Biden has changed his stance on vaccine mandates and has been unable to get a handle on the spread of the virus.  TRUMP ‘VERY APPRECIATIVE’ AND ‘SURPRISED’ BIDEN ACKNOWLEDGED HIS ADMINISTRATION'S COVID VACCINE SUCCESS RONNA MCDANIEL: He's underwater. His negatives are very, very high. And let's look at why. He said, one, you have to be masked or vaxxed. Now that's changed. He said, 'I'm not going to force vaccine mandates.' That changed. He said 'I'm going to shut down the virus.' Then he went on TV yesterday and said, 'We're going have a winter of death and despair.' This is a president who has not fulfilled any of his promises.  He has muddled his messaging. We have a testing crisis right now in our country. And first and foremost, he made a promise to the American people he'd shut down the virus. More people have died on his...
    In the event of war, Ukraine hopes that its Western allies, including the United States, will keep it supplied with weapons, he said. The world is watching Russia, which for months now has built up troops on its border with Ukraine in what the country says are "military exercises." News reports have shown Russian personnel and equipment including tanks, artillery, and armored troop carriers deployed to the Pogonovo training area and Yelnya in Russia and Novoozernoye in Crimea. A U.S. intelligence report from earlier this month claimed that Moscow is planning a multi-front offensive against Ukraine that could begin as early as next year and involve as many as 175,000 soldiers. Russia previously annexed the Crimea region from Ukraine in 2014, though Moscow now denies having any intention of invading or seizing more territory, accusing the U.S. and Ukraine of engaging in destabilizing behavior. Putin has demanded that the U.S. guarantee that Ukraine will not be admitted to the NATO military alliance. He has also called on the U.S. and other Western countries to cease military activity near...
    MIKEL ARTETA may well have wondered where the last two years have gone in the moments before the first whistle. Certainly a lot of the players who featured on the first day he appeared as manager of the Gunners will have been doing so. 1Not much has changed at Arsenal in the two years since Mikel Arteta took overCredit: Getty Of the team that started a 0–0 draw with Everton on December 21, 2019 at Goodison just three of them still had their places as the teams kicked off tonight. Granit Xhaka, Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka were in the line-up as Arteta accepted back slaps in the main stand before officially taking charge for the next game – a Boxing Day 1-1 draw with Bournemouth. Emile Smith Rowe would have been out there, too, but for a knee injury. Yet while the former Everton midfielder has changed so many of the personnel he inherited the difference in his near-two years in charge was almost impossible to see. True enough, one of Arteta’s new boys, £35million Martin Odegaard, did score...
    The White House 's reaction to images of border agents on horseback blocking Haitians from crossing into Texas has not changed, even though reports migrants were being whipped have been debunked. President Joe Biden vowed the border agents "will pay" after photos in the El Paso Times last week were widely reported to show agents whipping migrants . But even though the paper has walked back those claims and it now appears the agents were simply twirling reins, White House press secretary Jen Psaki continued to condemn the agents. PHOTOGRAPHER: BORDER AGENTS WEREN'T WHIPPING MIGRANTS "I don't think anyone could look at those photos and think that was appropriate behavior or something that should be accepted within our administration," Psaki said, reiterating her comments from last week. "There's an investigation that's ongoing. We'll let that play out, but our reaction to the photos has not changed." Video showed the agents did not whip migrants, and a photographer who took the photos that touched off the controversy said the whipping claims were inaccurate. But on Friday, Biden condemned the agents...
    The White House said on Thursday that President Joe Biden’s position on expanding the Supreme Court to add liberal justices hasn’t changed after the court declined to weigh in on a new Texas law banning most abortions. Biden, a former chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, had kept his views on court-packing close to his vest during last year’s campaign but was viewed as reluctant to take this step. He appointed a commission to study court expansion and other related issues. “The president's view on the expansion of courts has not changed," White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters at Thursday’s briefing. She noted the Biden-appointed commission was reviewing a “range of questions” beyond the number of justices on the nation’s highest court, including judicial term limits. BIDEN AND TRUMP BATTLE OVER WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN IN AFGHANISTAN Court-packing has picked up steam on the Left after former President Barack Obama couldn't fill the vacancy created by Justice Antonin Scalia because of Senate Republican opposition, while former President Donald Trump appointed three justices.

    Chicago (CNN)During the Fourth of July weekend, Jacob Blake says he called 911 over what he later realized was an anxiety attack.The fireworks triggered what he felt had been a crescendo of pain over a difficult and turbulent year, particularly when it came to gun violence. Blake was in the Chicago area that weekend with family.He says the anxious episode "was the most painful experience" since he was shot seven times in his side on August 23, 2020 by Kenosha Police Officer Rusten Sheskey after he and two other officers responded to a call for a domestic incident.A year later, Blake tells CNN that he didn't want to call 911 during the holiday, but he had no other option."Before we even got to the 4th of July, the weekend was bloody already, Blake says.

    BIDEN'S 'BALD-FACED LIES' OVER AFGHANISTAN WITHDRAWAL President Biden claimed in his interview on August 18 that chaos in Kabul was inevitable, but just six weeks ago at a White House briefing he said the Taliban takeover was 'NOT inevitable'. On the Taliban  July 8: ‘The likelihood there's going to be the Taliban overrunning everything and owning the whole country is highly unlikely... it is not inevitable'.  August 18: ‘The idea that somehow, there's a way to have gotten out without chaos ensuing, I don't know how that happens.’  On the Afghan army July 8: ‘I trust the capacity of the Afghan military, who more competent [than the Taliban] in terms of conducting war.' August 18: ‘When you saw the significant collapse of the Afghan troops we had trained, that was -- you know I'm not -- that's what happened.'  The Taliban swept to power in Afghanistan in less than two weeks after they took their first provincial capital. On the evacuation  July 8: ‘Our military mission in Afghanistan will conclude on August 31st. The drawdown is proceeding in a secure and...
    This story was originally published at Prism. When Prism first reported on Susana Coreas in April, she was waylaid in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, with 43 other trans women, all of whom were waiting for their opportunity to request asylum in the United States. Coreas first arrived in Mexico after migrating from El Salvador with a group of trans women in January 2020. But because of the double whammy of COVID-19 and the Trump administration’s anti-immigrant policies, Coreas couldn’t safely undergo the asylum process. So, Coreas waited out her time in Mexico by building Casa de Colores, a shelter for trans and gender nonconforming migrants waiting for their chance to request asylum in the U.S. Coreas was Casa de Colores’ unofficial house mother. The others at the shelter called her “mom” and relied on her for food, resources, friendship, and support. While Coreas did want to eventually leave the shelter to request asylum and see her son in Minnesota, she also feared leaving the other women behind. But that day came on May 4, and the circumstances weren’t ideal. Coreas and a handful...
    The conversation regarding how detrimental fast fashion is to the environment is one a lot of people are starting to have. Landfills are being filled up with clothes we’ve hardly worn made by people who were not paid even close to enough for their time, energy, and sacrifice. The physical repercussions are undeniable – but what has fast fashion done to how we think about clothes and the fashion industry?  What’s the psychology behind cheap, mass-produced, and disposable garments?  Makes Us More Impulsive  There are constantly new styles and trends coming out from fast fashion companies. Unlike traditional fashion houses that release collections every new season, clothing brands like Zara or H&M have a steady flow of new garments coming out constantly. Because of this, customers never really know how long things are going to be available – so you better grab it immediately before it’s gone!  The combination of social media (including Youtube) and quick and cheap clothing has created a “snackable shopping” experience for customers. Watching your favorite YouTuber and they mention a top that’s linked down...
    Major League Baseball enforced a sticky stuff ban last month and probably expected a massive jump in offensive numbers. Well, surprise! Hitters are still having a difficult time putting the ball into play because — wait for it — pitchers are still throwing 100 miles an hour. Players were asked about the differences after the ban, and even they’re saying it hasn’t changed much. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM "It’s a little confusing because they stopped it ,and the pitchers are still really good," Cubs star Kris Bryant said. "They’re still really good pitchers." He did admit that breaking balls aren’t moving quite as much, but is it possible that won’t help? I think it’s fair to say less predictable breaking ball movement could be counter-productive to the success of hitters. Tough to predict where a pitch is breaking if the pitcher doesn’t even know. Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto was asked about the differences he’s seeing behind the plate as well as at the dish. "Maybe a little less bite on some curveballs? I guess what I’m...
    The WHO wants fully vaccinated people to wear their masks and practice social distancing to protect themselves against the delta variant, but the CDC hasn't followed suit.  The World Health Organization made the announcement Friday, and Dr. Mariangela Simao - WHO assistant director-general for access to medicines and health products - said, 'Vaccines alone won't stop community transmission.'  'People need to continue to use masks consistently, be in ventilated spaces, hand hygiene ... the physical distance, avoid crowding,' Simao said during a press conference from the WHO's Geneva headquarters, CNBC reported.  'This still continues to be extremely important, even if you're vaccinated when you have a community transmission ongoing.'  The WHO's recommendations clash with what a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention official told Fox News on June 15, which is that fully vaccinated people have a 'high degree of protection;' although those who aren't vaccinated are at risk.  The World Health Organization urges people to continue wearing masks and social distance to protect against the delta varant CDC officials haven't changed guidelines for fully vaccinated people and have...
    (CNN)Barbara Poma, owner of the former Pulse nightclub, woke up on the five-year anniversary one of the worst mass shootings in US history to news of more mass shootings.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention walked back a statement its director made on Friday about the agency's recommendation surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine during pregnancy, clarifying that the agency's recommendation for pregnant people considering the vaccine has not changed. Speaking at a White House COVID-19 briefing on Friday, CDC head Dr. Rochelle Walensky  said that the "CDC recommends that pregnant people receive the COVID-19 vaccine," citing a new study that found no evidence to suggest that the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines pose risk during pregnancy. On Tuesday, the agency walked back that recommendation. In an email to CBS News, a CDC spokesperson said the CDC's guidance for pregnant people had not changed from its March recommendation, which is that "pregnant people are eligible and can receive a COVID-19 vaccine" and clarified that the guidance "has always been and remains CDC's recommendation." "If facing decisions about whether to receive a COVID-19 vaccine while pregnant, people should consider risk of exposure to COVID-19, the increased risk of severe infection while pregnant,  the known benefits of vaccination, and the limited...
    The State Department on Tuesday threw cold water on the idea that the U.S. would boycott the 2022 Beijing Olympics.  "Our position on the 2022 Olympics has not changed. We have not discussed and are not discussing any joint boycott with allies and partners," a State Department spokesperson said in a statement to reporters, hours after State Dept. spokesman Ned Price had another message.  "The State Department Spokesperson did not say we had, contrary to some reporting. As the Department said, we regularly discuss common concerns vis-à-vis the PRC with our allies and partners. We will continue to do so, cognizant that a shared approach will always be in our interest." Reports circulated earlier that the State Department was considering a possible joint boycott, as calls have grown for the U.S. to back out of the Chinese-hosted event due to human rights violations.  SEN. RICK SCOTT SLAMS BIDEN FOR BEING SILENT ON MOVING OLYMPICS OUT OF CHINA  "It is something that we certainly wish to discuss," Price said.

    For the second time in three months, the people who knew Latasha Harlins best and who miss her most gathered in front of her mural at Algin Sutton Recreation Center. Thirty years ago, the 15-year-old Black girl from South Central walked into Empire Liquor Market and Deli, grabbed a $1.79 bottle of orange juice and put it in her backpack. A Korean-born merchant, Soon Ja Du, accused her of stealing it. Latasha had $2 in her hand. Du grabbed Latasha’s sweater. Then Latasha punched Du in the face and headed for the door. Du picked up a handgun and fired a shot into the back of Latasha’s head. Shinese Harlins-Kilgore, cousin of Latasha Harlins, is hugged by her stepfather, David Bryant, as family, close friends and community members marked the 30th anniversary of Latasha’s death.(Al Seib / Los Angeles Times) Police later confirmed that there was “no attempt at shoplifting.” A jury found Du guilty of voluntary manslaughter, but instead of serving a maximum of 16 years in prison, Judge Joyce A. Karlin gave Du probation. For killing a...
    I never got to meet legendary CBS and NBC correspondent Roger Mudd. That’s a regret of mine. Mudd died last week at age 93. I always wanted to meet Mudd because he covered Congress for CBS. I read Mudd’s 2008 book "The Place to Be." What intrigued me about the book were his tales about covering Congress for so many years. I generally don’t seek out celebrities or public figures. I report on a lot of them. It’s part of the job. So I never reached out to Mudd. ROGER MUDD, LONGTIME NETWORK TV NEWSMAN, DIES AT 93 But after reporting on Congress for decades, I could understand every syllable of Mudd’s book. Growing up, I recall watching Mudd substitute for Walter Cronkite on the CBS Evening News and report from Capitol Hill – long before I ever had any notion to visit Washington let alone report on Congress. Mudd lost out to Dan Rather to succeed Cronkite as anchor of the CBS Evening News. Mudd then bolted for NBC. As a young adult, I sometimes saw Mudd appear on...
    GEORGE Holliday woke up after midnight in his bed in Los Angeles to the sound of cop car sirens and a low-flying helicopter – something serious was unfolding outside his apartment. It was March 3, 1991, and he was about to witness one of the most important events in American history. 15Holliday filmed Rodney King being beaten by LAPD cops in a video which shocked the worldCredit: CNN - Getty Exactly 30 years ago today, Holliday, a plumber, grabbed his video camera and went out on to his balcony and filmed white LAPD officers savagely beating an unarmed black man, Rodney King. His video tape of the incident would be shown endlessly on news channels around the world – and would become a crucial factor in the local community's sense of outrage when the officers were acquitted at trial in 1992. The uproar sparked furious rioting in LA, which lasted six days and led to 63 deaths, 12,000 arrests, and over $1billion in damage. Now 61, Holliday fears race relations in the US haven't come very...
    Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday reacted to the World Health Organization rejecting the notion that the coronavirus came from a lab in Wuhan, China. Pompeo said on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom” that “not a thing” has changed his belief that the virus originated in Wuhan because “there was significant evidence.” “I must say the reason we left the World Health Organization was because we came to believe that it was corrupt. It had been politicized. It was bending a knee to General Secretary Xi Jinping in China,” Pompeo outlined. “I hope that’s not the case here with what they have announced today. I will look forward to seeing their reports and analysis. But I don’t believe it’s the case that they got access that they needed.” He continued, “I hope that they got to see all the data and science, into the lab, talk to the doctors, interview them … in private in places where they could actually tell the truth about what took place, not under the supervision of a communist party person sitting in...
    Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Tuesday that he still believes the novel coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab despite the World Health Organization (WHO) saying that theory is unlikely. Pompeo appeared on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” and watched as host Bill Hemmer played clips from a May 2020 interview, where he stated that “there is a significant amount of evidence” that the virus came from a lab in the Wuhan province of China. (RELATED: Chinese Ambassador Calls For WHO Investigation Into US Over Coronavirus Origins) “How do we look at that now, sir?” asked Hemmer after playing the clips. “Well Bill, I’ve seen that headline and I must say the reason we left the World Health Organization was because we came to believe that it was corrupt. It had been politicized. It was bending a knee to General Secretary Xi Jinping in China,” Pompeo responded. “I hope that’s not the case here with what they have announced today. I’ll look forward to seeing their reports and analysis.” The WHO began an international mission to China in...
    The feeling of opening Twitter and noticing that something’s off probably isn’t a new one, but it usually isn’t related to the site’s color scheme. Yet some users (and News Brig staff) are now seeing that Twitter’s desktop dark mode has gotten darker, or worse, been changed to light mode. Twitter tells The News Brig that the change from blue to black was intentional — it’s part of an update to make the Tw itter website respond to the light and dark modes on your OS. Of course, if you miss the dark blue, you can bring it back by going to Twitter’s display settings and choosing Dim mode (instead of the inky black Lights Out or the bright Default), and the site should remember that preference. If your Twitter switched from dark mode to light, though, the company says that wasn’t supposed to happen. That was caused by a bug, and could’ve happened to you if you had Twitter set to Dim or Lights Out mode but had your OS in light mode. Head to your display settings...

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow spoke about Tucker Carlson — the controversial Fox News host who was once a close colleague of hers at MSNBC — in a new interview with Mediaite. In this week’s episode of The Interview podcast, Aidan McLaughlin asked Maddow about her opinion of Carlson — given their history working together — a question that elicited a disclaimer from the MSNBC star. “I don’t watch his show,” she said, joking that she sounds like Republican senators claiming they missed President Donald Trump’s latest controversial tweet. “I think the thing that Tucker gets a knock for — that he doesn’t deserve — is this idea that he’s evolved and changed in some radical new direction,” Maddow said, speaking on a common criticism of the Fox News host. “Tucker has always been that guy. He is legitimately that guy. He is not faking it. He comes by his beliefs and his convictions and even his tone of voice quite naturally. He is not putting it on.” Carlson hosted MSNBC prime time show Tucker from 2005 to 2008, before leaving the network for Fox...
    Kubrat Pulev is heading into a massive title fight against world champion Anthony Joshua. While this fight should have happened in 2017, it fell apart and is happening now. Pulev and Joshua had a very tense weigh-in and had to be kept apart. Pulev explained what happened in the interaction and what he said to AJ. “I am ready for tomorrow. I tell him I respect him. Olympic champion, world champion, I respect him so much. But I am better boxer and tomorrow I show him. That’s what I tell him because I’m amazing. Tomorrow I show… I think he didn’t like that. But, time is changed. Nobody can stay the same. Time is changed, people is changed, everything is changed.

    Entertainment : Time passes curiously fast and slow at the same time in this 2020 pandemic, but a year ago, on November 12, 2019, Disney Plus saw the light. That is to say, Baby Yoda, The Mandalorian, was beginning to show the leg, see the seasons of The Simpsons subjected to Disney standards and have in a single app an unthinkable catalog assembled of classics from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, without forgetting the quality of National Geographic documentaries. Disney Plus was born. Disney entered the so-called ‘Streaming Wars’ with a massive landing of its own content, a demolition price that could also join ESPN and Hulu in the United States, and the promise of original Marvel and Star Wars series on the way. It was not difficult to foresee that Disney Plus would work, at least in the way in which it was focused on two very specific audiences: followers of great sagas like Marvel and Star Wars, and families, for whom the content was more than appropriate. A year later, its number of subscribers...

    FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Democrats have been hoping to flip Texas for years – first in 2014, then 2016, 2018 and of course 2020, – but once again this election proved to be a disappointment for the state’s minority party. Expectations were high, but there was no blue wave in the Lone Star State. “One of the net takeaways from this election is that in Texas, not a lot changed,” said Kimi King, a political science professor at the University of North Texas. President Donald Trump beat Democrat Joe Biden in every county in North Texas, except for Dallas County. It’s still a close race in Tarrant County, where the president has a 2,000 vote lead and defective mail-in ballots are still being counted. “I think it’s definitely a function of the urban areas that are flowing into the suburban areas, and it’s making Texas potentially purple, look a little purplish,” King said. King says that helps explain why the margins in the presidential race were narrower than they’ve been in decades. The president won the state by just six...
    BOSTON (CBS) – It has been months since emergency rooms in Massachusetts were packed with coronavirus patients and now the Centers for Disease Control says the death rate from COVID-19 has dropped to roughly .65 percent from 2 or 3 percent earlier in the pandemic. “My reaction to that is that that’s exactly what we would expect,” said Dr. Shira Doron, Infectious Disease Expert and Hospital Epidemiologist at Tufts Medical Center. Doron says there are a number of reasons why the COVID-19 death rate could be trending down. “We are seeing shifting infections into younger populations. That will lower the death rate,” she said. Increased testing is catching infections earlier and doctors have learned how to better treat the virus. Doron and others do not believe that the virus has gotten milder. “I would not at this point say that COVID has changed, that the population has changed or is becoming more resistant to COVID-19. We just don’t see that,” said Dr. Cassandra Pierre, an epidemiologist at Boston Medical Center. The death rate...
    Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) confirmed in a Sunday statement that she opposes replacing the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the November election. “For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to the election. Sadly, what was then a hypothetical is now our reality, but my position has not changed,” Murkowski said, according to The Hill. “I did not support taking up a nomination eight months before the 2016 election to fill the vacancy created by the passing of Justice Scalia. We are now even closer to the 2020 election – less than two months out – and I believe the same standard must apply,” she added. In an interview with Alaksa Public Media, Murkowski had expressed the same opinion just hours before Ginsburg’s death was announced Friday, saying it “was too close to an election and that the people needed to decide. That the closer you get to an election, that argument becomes even more important.” “So I would not vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee,” Murkowski...
    WHEN Katie Hirst was diagnosed with cervical cancer two years ago, her whole world fell apart. But the 26-year-old from London says she actually considers herself lucky as had she gone for her smear test any later the deadly cancer would not have been detected. 4Katie Hirst was diagnosed with cervical cancer despite her HPV results coming back clearCredit: Instagram/ Katie Hirst The NHS has now changed how they test for cervical cancer meaning that Katie’s tumour would never have been detected. Here she speaks exclusively to Fabulous Digital about her petition to have changes made to cervical cancer screenings, and her terrifying ordeal. Sitting at my desk I saw the four words that would change my life pop up on my screen. I had stage one cervical cancer. At just 24 it was traumatic to say the least, but actually I consider myself incredibly lucky. 4Katie had her cervix removed and is now cancer-free Credit: Katie Hirst/Instagram I had my smear test just before the NHS made radical changes to its screening and had I gone just a month...
    In the last week, the number of major scandals that have been uncovered is so astounding that any attempt to list them all would certainly leave out something vital. However, there are two that stand out: The confirmation that Donald Trump knew of the threat posed by COVID-19 and chose to cover it up; and the revelations that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) understood the rising danger from white supremacist groups, but deliberately hid that information. These may seem like disconnected items from a White House that generates scandal at a breakneck pace. They’re not. They’re absolutely of a piece. It’s been clear since even before he sat down behind the Resolute Desk that Donald Trump intended to use every instrument of the government to benefit himself and his friends. That’s included crushing environmental regulations to benefit fossil fuels, providing weapons to authoritarian regimes to improve his own business relationships, and undermining both intelligence and justice to protect his cadres of white collar crooks. But the biggest thing that Trump set out to achieve is to complete the struggle he began almost half a century ago....
    President Donald Trump’s daughter and Senior Adviser Ivanka Trump introduced her father on the final night of the Republican National Convention on Thursday. “Washington has not changed Donald Trump. Donald Trump has changed Washington!” she said. Ivanka Trump delivered a lengthy introduction, recalling the first four years the president and her family spent in Washington, DC, and the administration’s successes. Her remarks were warmly received by a crowd of supporters gathered on the South Lawn of the White House for the president’s speech. “For the first time in a long time, we have a president who has called out Washington’s hypocrisy — and they hate him for it,” she said. “Dad, people attack you for being unconventional, but I love you for being real, and I respect you for being effective.” She reminded Americans that the president refused to align with the political elite in Washington. “Our President refuses to surrender his beliefs to score points with the political elite. To my father, you are the elite,” he said. “He only cares about scoring points with you.” She also took...
    Covid-19 has not become less deadly, according to research that rubbishes claims the life-threatening disease has weakened over time.  Scientific theory suggests viruses may lose potency in a bid to survive — if they kill or cripple all their human hosts they will run out of road. But Italian scientists who tracked the outbreak between March and the start of May say that there is no evidence the coronavirus poses less of a threat.  Around 9.5 per cent of infected patients (157 of 1,658) who were hospitalised in the provinces of Ferrara and Pescara in March died.  In comparison, the mortality rate was only slightly higher at 12.1 per cent in April (101 of 835). But academics implied the rate was down to patients being slightly older, skewing the results to make it seem like the virus had actually became more aggressive.  The average age of those who died was 78 in March but rose to 84 in April. Experts did not explain why this may have been. Coronavirus has not become less deadly over time, contrary to recent suggestions,...
