    The study, "Working memory capacity predicts individual differences in social-distancing compliance during the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States," assessed the working memory, personality, mood and fluid intelligence of test subjects; the researchers surveyed 850 U.S. residents between March 13 and March 25..."The decision of whether or not to follow social distancing guidelines is a difficult one,...This decision critically relies on our mental capacity in retaining multiple pieces of potentially conflicting information in our head, which is referred to as working memory capacity," study author Weizhen Xie (Zane) told PsyPost.

    Rush Limbaugh is literally in the fight for his life as he continues to battle Stage 4 lung cancer, but it isn’t quite “game over” for the conservative talk radio icon. “I’m very confident that this is gonna go into extra innings,” Limbaugh said Monday during his syndicated radio program, “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” using America’s pastime as an analogy to update his audience on his health. “It was in late January that we learned of the diagnosis,” he said. “That means we learned of a really tough opponent. So, it was time to go up to bat, time to...
  • Deodorants vs. Antiperspirants: Benefits & Risks

    07/10/2020 3:01:45 PM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 21 replies
    The aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants — their active ingredients — keep sweat from getting to the surface of the skin by blocking the sweat glands. There’s a concern that if the skin absorbs these aluminum compounds, they can affect the estrogen receptors of breast cells. However, according to the American Cancer Society, there’s no clear link between cancer and the aluminum in antiperspirants because: Breast cancer tissue doesn’t appear to have more aluminum than normal tissue. Only a tiny amount of aluminum is absorbed (0.0012 percent) based on research on antiperspirants containing aluminum chlorohydrate... Antiperspirants and deodorants work in different...

    Comrades, the ministry of COVID compliance in New York has now been given permission to issue subpoenas requiring the general public to comply with COVID compliance contact tracers. Any New Yorker who refuses to answer the interrogation questions by the COVID compliance police is now subject to arrest. You do not have the right to remain silent, and everything you say will be guaranteed to be used against you as the state takes control over your life. The process of “Contact Tracing” permits the state authority to identify the travel, contacts and associated risks presented by anyone who tests positive...

    HAMILTON COUNTY, Ohio — Hamilton County Commissioner Victoria Parks released a draft of a resolution to declare racism a public health crisis in the county on Tuesday. The move, which follows weeks of protests over police brutality, calls for expanded training for county employees, a disparity study specific to the county and expansion of the Office of Economic Inclusion, in addition to supporting collaborative health efforts that reduce racial inequities.

    Count Liz Cheney and her dad among those attempting to shame all Americans into wearing face masks in the age of the coronavirus. The Wyoming representative tweeted a photo of former Vice President Dick Cheney on Friday in a cowboy hat and mask, captioned, "Dick Cheney says WEAR A MASK. #realmenwearmasks." CNN calls it "a shot at the manhood of people who refuse to wear face coverings in a seeming jab at President Donald Trump." It's not the first time the younger Cheney has bucked the president: in March, she called for the US to deal first with the coronavirus...

The bandage brand, which is owned by Johnson & Johnson, said it plans to roll out the new product in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement

    Deaths from COVID-19 are dropping, but we probably can't resume normal life until someone develops a vaccine. Experts say it will take at least 12 to 18 months. Why so long? Because to make sure a vaccine works, researchers must recruit lots of volunteers and wait for them to get sick. First, they inject the volunteers. Half get the test vaccine; half get a placebo. Then, the test subjects resume their normal lives, and researchers watch to see who gets sick. For that research to work, there must be enough of the coronavirus around for enough volunteers to get the...
  • A Strange Thing Can Happen When You Use Mouthwash After You Exercise

    In ads on TV, it all looks so simple. People use mouthwash, it instantly neutralises all the nasty bacteria hiding in their mouths, and – just like that – their dental hygiene is assured. But what's really going on when you rinse a cap-load of antibacterial chemicals around your mouth? What does that to your body, and to other kinds of microorganisms that may actually be beneficial to health? As a study showed last year, the downstream effects can be surprising, and far-reaching too, affecting much more than just your dental wellbeing. In an experiment led by scientists from the...

    Going without sleep for too long kills animals but scientists haven’t known why. Newly published work suggests that the answer lies in an unexpected part of the body. Feeling dead tired? Scientists may finally be on the verge of learning why too little sleep is inevitably fatal. Inside a series of tubes in a bright, warm room at Harvard Medical School, hundreds of fruit flies are staying up late. It has been days since any of them have slept: The constant vibrations that shake their homes preclude rest, cling as they might to the caps of the tubes for respite....

    Democratic lawmakers in Ohio have proposed legislation to declare racism a public health issue amid nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd . . . “What we are witnessing around the country is a community simply begging to be seen and heard,” said Democratic Rep. Stephanie Howse, of Cleveland, and the caucus president. “Racism is real and it is the biggest public health threat citizens of color face.”

    The science of the coronavirus is not disputed. It is well documented and openly admitted: Most people won’t get the virus. Most of the people who get it won’t display symptoms. Most of the people who display symptoms will only be mildly sick. Most of the people with severe symptoms will never be critically ill. And most of the people who get critically ill will survive. This is borne out by the numerous serological studies which show, again and again, that the infection fatality ratio is on par with flu. There is no science – and increasingly little rational discussion...

    President Donald Trump went to church Monday. That isn’t exactly accurate. There was no chorus of worship, no corporate prayer, no holy reverence, no gathering of believers, and thus no church. Just the leader of the free world and the charred, boarded-up shell of a building, marred with fire at the hands of mutinous rogues. Amid nationwide protests and riots over the needless death of George Floyd at the hands of dishonorable officers, the president stood outside the vandalized historic structure. St. John’s Episcopal Church isn’t the only desolate house of worship today. Church buildings across America stand as empty...

    Gun control legislation has been all the rage in Richmond since Democrats took over the Virginia General Assembly last November. The Democratic majority teamed with Gov. Ralph Northam in their ambitious efforts to cross items off the gun control checklist, such as enacting a “red flag” law, banning private firearm transfers, reviving a handgun purchase limit, and even implementing a modern sporting rifle ban that was thankfully defeated in committee — for now. It should come as no surprise, then, that the governor who wouldn’t let his past use of blackface stop his political pandering would also not let a...

    Back in April, the captain of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, Brett Crozier, was relieved of command after sounding the alarm about an outbreak of COVID-19 aboard his ship. The news made national headlines and catalyzed a spirited debate.Since then, news of the Theodore Roosevelt has largely faded, with hardly anyone acknowledging the most important part about the COVID-19 outbreak: More than 1,100 sailors were infected, and only one died.From the time the outbreak began and up until early May, the Navy offered daily updates regarding the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases on the Theodore Roosevelt. Once the Navy had completed...

    Bishops are keeping sacraments suspended indefinitely and allowing Washington churches to be treated differently than other establishments in terms of opening. Washington state Catholic leaders would rather stick it to the president than let him defend their right to celebrate Mass. Following President Donald TrumpÂ’s direction on Friday for states to allow houses of worship to reopened and to declare public worship as essential, Gov. Jay Inslee immediately thumbed his nose, and Washington bishops quickly follow suit.In a disappointing response, the bishops demonstrated that rather than stand up for their flock and acknowledge the presidentÂ’s commitment to religious freedom, they...
