    Actress Patricia Arquette, an outspoken critic of President Trump, says climate change is the one issue really keeping her up at night. It's "something we can't turn back the clock on," Arquette said Monday night in Washington, D.C. “Dismantling the [Environmental Protection Agency] and rolling back all these climate regulations … we’re going to pay a huge price for that." “I’m concerned with legislation, but I at least hope we can change that again. But as far as climate change, there’s no negotiating the devastating effects of disregard and destruction at that level,” she added. Arquette was one of four...

    The new series of Doctor Who will see the Time Lord joined by his first openly gay companion. Bill Potts's sexuality will be revealed pretty much straightaway in her second line of dialogue when the show returns to BBC One on 15 April. "It shouldn't be a big deal in the 21st Century. It's about time isn't it?" Pearl Mackie, who plays Bill, told the BBC. "That representation is important, especially on a mainstream show." She added: "It's important to say people are gay, people are black - there are also aliens in the world as well so watch out...

    Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren is not coming back to The Blaze, where she hosted a daily show on the conservative website's network. The decision, outlined in a published report, to permanently pull her comes less than a week after The Blaze suspended her without providing a reason. Lahren ignited anger from some conservatives for saying on "The View" that she believes in abortion rights and calling conservatives hypocrites.

    Just in time to go get his next NFL contract, Colin Kaepernick's national anthem protest is done. On Thursday morning, according to ESPN, Kaepernick, who spent all of last season kneeling during the national anthem in a polarizing and impactful protest of police brutality and minority oppression, is suddenly done kneeling. "Kaepernick no longer wants the past method of protest to detract from the positive change that he believes has been created, per sources," ESPN's Adam Schefter wrote.

    If there’s any doubt left that we live in divisive political times, know this: Some fans of Harry Potter are burning their copies of the books to protest author J.K. Rowling’s views of the U.S. president. And she’s fighting back on Twitter, insulting those very fans. That’s right, one of the most beloved series of books in modern history has now become a political prop. Is nothing safe? (TWEETS-AT-LINK) Rowling has been vocal about her feelings concerning President Trump for some time. She has mostly used Trump’s favorite platform, Twitter, to share her criticisms....

    About 40 potential vaccines for the Zika virus are being tested, but none are likely to be available for women of childbearing age before 2020, the World Health Organization said on Wednesday. WHO director Margaret Chan said the virus, linked to deformations in babies’ heads and brains, remained “firmly entrenched” in large parts of the world. Although progress toward effective prevention has been made, with some drugs now in clinical trials, “a vaccine judged safe enough for use in women of childbearing age may not be fully licensed before 2020,” Chan said. …

He made the announcement whilst speaking to Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 on Monday, as he revealed that it was 'time to move on' from the BBC series.

    Denmark’s development minister, Ulla Tørnæs, has expressed her disappointment in the Trump administration’s decision to reinstate a ban on US funding to health groups around the world that provide information about abortion. Following Trump’s move to reinstate what is formally known as the “Mexico City Policy” but more popularly described as the “global gag rule”, Tørnæs said that Denmark will not waver in its commitment to women’s rights and the belief that women should be allowed to choose what they do with their own bodies. […] The Danish government is being urged by some to join a Dutch effort to...

    Syrian state TV showed footage of ambulances and a long line of green buses leaving eastern Aleppo. BBC producer Riam Dalati says the first convoy has now arrived at a "handover point" in rebel-held areas to the west. Russia's defence ministry has said buses are taking the injured, civilians and rebel fighters to the neighbouring province of Idlib, most of which is controlled by a powerful rebel alliance that includes the jihadist group Jabhat Fateh al-Sham. The chief of the Russian military's General Staff, Gen Valery Gerasimov, told a news briefing: "A humanitarian corridor has been created for the evacuation...

    Single men and women without medical issues will be classed as “infertile” if they do not have children but want to become a parent, the World Health Organisation is to announce. In a move which dramatically changes the definition of infertility, the WHO will declare that it should no longer be regarded as simply a medical condition. The authors of the new global standards said the revised definition gave every individual “the right to reproduce”.

    There is grumbling in progressive circles over polls showing that Orthodox Jews will vote for Trump. Among non-Orthodox Jews, Hillary beats Trump by 66 to 23 percent. Among the Orthodox, Trump beats her 66 to 22 percent. In New York, Hillary scores 61 to 19 percent among Jews, but among Orthodox Jews, Trump wins 50% of the vote while Hillary lags at 21%. It’s no wonder then that Jewish Democrats for Trump is largely targeting Orthodox Jewish voters. Why Orthodox Jews? It might be tempting to attribute this support to Trump’s daughter having converted to Orthodox Judaism, but these same...

    She recently called out the double standards surrounding men and women who want to be viewed sexually. Emily - who shot to fame as one of the dancers in Robin Thicke controversial Blurred Lines video - recently accused the nation of being sexist in it's view of men and women expressing their sexuality. Writing in the October issue of Glamour magazine, she reasoned: 'It’s absurd to think that desire for attention doesn’t drive both women and men. Why are women scrutinized for it more, then? 'Our society doesn’t question men’s motivations for taking their shirt off, or shaving, or talking...

    More than two-and-a-half billion people are at risk of developing the Zika virus, scientists have warned. It comes as the World Health Organisation declared the outbreak of Zika remains an international health emergency and noted the virus is continuing to infect new countries. Malaysia has also confirmed its first case of the virus after authorities in Singapore confirmed they have detected more than 150 people with the virus. New analysis of travel, climate and mosquito patterns in parts of Asia and Africa found people in these regions were particularly at risk.

    Billionaire philanthropist and former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg has a new job — as global ambassador for the U.N. health agency with a mandate to help reduce deaths from prevalent diseases, traffic accidents, tobacco, alcohol and obesity. World Health Organization Director General Margaret Chan cited Bloomberg’s longtime support for its efforts to control smoking and tobacco use, improve road safety and prevent drowning in announcing Wednesday that he will be the agency’s Global Ambassador for Non-communicable Diseases. She said Bloomberg will help mobilize national and local political leaders, donors and the private sector to prevent and treat non-communicable diseases...

    t is, perhaps, a peculiar fact involving an obscure medical text, but it is one that is now taking on outsized importance: The World Health Organization, in a compendium of conditions and diseases, lists being transgender under the umbrella of mental illness. The WHO publishes a standardized coding system used around the globe to classify medical conditions, for research purposes and health-care billing. In the document, being transgender is currently included in a section with kleptomania (the overwhelming impulse to steal), trichotillomania (the compulsion to pull out one’s own hair), and pedophilia (a preference for having sex with children).
