    Florida's controversial surgeon general is drawing criticism for his handling of an elementary school's measles outbreak... ...Dr. Joseph Ladapo, nationally known for his outspoken skepticism toward the COVID-19 vaccine, sent a letter this week to parents at Manatee Bay Elementary School near Fort Lauderdale after six students contracted... The letter notes that when a school has a measles outbreak, it is “normally recommended” that unvaccinated students...be kept home for three weeks “because of the high likelihood” they will be infected. But the letter then says the state won't turn that recommendation into a mandate, at least for now. The Broward...

  • FBI informant Alexander Smirnov charged with lying about $10MILLION bribery scheme involving Bidens WILL appear in court today as judge considers whether he will remain behind bars over flight risk fears

    The former FBI informant charged with lying about a $10 million-dollar bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden´s family is set to appear in a California federal court on Monday. A judge will determine whether Alexander Smirnov, 43, must remain behind bars while he awaits trial. Special counsel David Weiss' office is pressing U.S. District Judge Otis Wright II to keep Smirnov in jail, arguing the man who claims to have ties to Russian intelligence is likely to flee the country. A different judge last week released Smirnov from jail on electronic GPS monitoring, but Wright ordered the man to be...

    New York Post ^ | Feb. 25, 2024 | Jonathan Sweet and Mark Toth
    But upcoming Biden administration and German decisions concerning the deployment of precision deep-strike weapons — namely ATACMS and the Taurus cruise missile — are likely weighing heavily on Putin’s mind, along with the coming introduction of F-16 fighter jets. Ditto bilateral security guarantees, some signed just days ago, with the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Denmark, Italy and Canada — and Sweden’s and Britain’s announcements last week of additional military assistance. Europe is not giving up on Ukraine. Propaganda wins aside, it was a losing week for Putin... As many as 65 soldiers from Russia’s 39th Separate Guards Motorized Rifle Brigade...
  • 'A fabulous ambassador' Flaco, the beloved New York owl, died after building collision

    Flaco, a Eurasian eagle-owl who became a New York celebrity known for escaping the Central Park Zoo last year and evading attempts to be recaptured, has died in an apparent collision with a building on the Upper West Side. Wild Bird Fund, a local rescue group, said the incident occurred Friday afternoon. When they arrived on scene, Flaco was unresponsive and lying face down in an apartment courtyard. The group's initial exam suggests that Flaco may have struck a window but there could be another underlying cause. The Central Park Zoo said the beloved owl has been taken to the...
  • I’d rather be caffeinated than depressed with $6’: Young Americans are rejecting Dave Ramsey’s financial advice — here’s why they say they’re ‘not willing to do anything to get out of debt'

    ave Ramsey has fervently preached financial advice to Americans for decades — but younger generations are now slamming the white-bearded radio host for offering counsel that doesn’t quite account for the current cost-of-living crisis. One frothy example is Ramsey’s vociferous renunciation of the daily cuppa Joe. In a 2021 blog post, he claims your coffee habit could be costing you $766 a year, and suggests folks should put those funds toward paying their your student debt, their investments or even a plane ticket.

    Some nationwide real estate investors, like Cardone Capital’s Grant Cardone, have started telling their teams to pack their bags and leave New York after the verdict in former President Trump’s fraud trial. "We thought this year was the opportunity to come into Chicago, California and New York City. I've been waiting for 40 years now to invest in that marketplace. I was completely confident this was the year to come," Cardone told Steve Doocy on "FOX & Friends" on Wednesday. "And when that ruling happened, it was like, pencils down. Don't touch it. Don't go there." The business leader gained...

    resident Biden's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently finalized an air quality rule that the manufacturing industry is warning could wipe out one million jobs and undermine efforts to build new manufacturing facilities in America. Jay Timmons, president and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), is set to sound the alarm about the regulation in his annual state of manufacturing address on Thursday in Roseville, Michigan, according to an advance copy of his remarks provided to FOX Business. "In his State of the Union Address next month, President Biden will probably take credit for what manufacturers have achieved. That's...

    Of the nearly nine million illegal migrants that Joe Biden has allowed into the United States since taking office, a significant percentage of them came here from Venezuela. There were 50.000 of them just in the month of September, setting a record that still stands today. The vast majority of them were simply allowed to stay, receiving court dates to make their asylum claims as much as a decade in the future. But to his credit, Biden managed to have a small number of the worst of the worst rounded up from time to time and put on planes to...

    Joe Biden attended a black-tie event at the White House, for governors who were in town for the National Governors Association Winter Meeting. But his confusion seems to be increasing. Even when he has a teleprompter, the speeches are becoming more rambling and disconnected. He spoke to the governors about working together to get things done and he referenced a quote from "the man behind me here." He claimed politics has gotten "too bitter." He made an attempt to quote Abraham Lincoln's "better angels of our nature" remark. It did not go well, and I wonder if he even forgot...

  • Study shows glucagon is key for kidney health (Fasting helps your body make more)

    02/25/2024 9:09:23 PM PST · by ConservativeMind · 2 replies
    Glucagon, a hormone best known for promoting blood sugar production in the liver, also appears to play a key role in maintaining kidney health. When researchers removed receptors for this hormone from mouse kidneys, the animals developed symptoms akin to chronic kidney disease (CKD). Researchers have discovered that cells in the pancreas produce glucagon when blood sugar, or glucose, dips below a certain threshold. This hormone migrates through the bloodstream to receptors on the surface of liver cells, prompting the liver to produce glucose that fuels cells throughout the body. More recent research has shown that the kidneys also bear...

    PJ Media ^ | 02/25/2024 | Matt Margolis
    In the wake of the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel on October 7, Joe Biden's public support for Israel has been a thorn in the side of the antisemitic wing of the Democratic Party. Since Israel has taken the fight to Hamas, Joe Biden has been under pressure to not only provide aid to Gaza (and thus Hamas) but to support a ceasefire. Joe Biden hasn't exactly been a friend to Israel, but that doesn't seem to matter to pro-Hamas Democrats. Public support of Biden's handling of the war has bipartisan disapproval, and there's likely little he can do to...

    On MSNBC “award-winning investigative journalist” (from Politico) Heidi Przybyla said this recently:Remember when Trump ran in 2016? A lot of the mainline evangelicals wanted nothing to do with the divorced real-estate mogul who cheated on his wife with a porn star and all of that, right? So what happened was, he was surrounded by this more extremist element. You’re going to hear words like Christian Nationalism, like the new apostolic reformation. These are groups that you should get very schooled on because they have a lot of power in Trump’s circle. And the one thing that unites all of them...

I’m claustrophobic, so when I first started wearing the cloth masks, I would have panic and anxiety attacks, particularly at the grocery store. Over time, I got used to it, and I started feeling safer by wearing my mask. Now, I don't think I will ever go into another crowded event without a mask. As a woman, we have our purses....
