    SNIP They asked the NFL to accommodate this request. The NFL did not. And so, as a result, the Giants play their only “Monday Night Football” game of the 2022 season on Sept. 26 at MetLife Stadium and any Jewish fans wishing to observe the High Holiday of Rosh Hashanah will not be able to attend that heated NFC East rivalry matchup. “I am well aware of that and not happy about it,” John Mara, the Giants co-owner, told The Post on Tuesday. “I made my feelings known to the league as soon as I saw the schedule. We have...

    David Boulware, who submitted the EUA for fluvoxamine, argues the agency is "behind the times"The FDA rejected an emergency use authorization (EUA) application for the use of the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluvoxamine to treat COVID-19 on Monday. In a brief summary of their decision, attached to their detailed analysis of the evidence for the rejection, the agency noted that "the data are insufficient to conclude that fluvoxamine may be effective in the treatment of nonhospitalized patients with COVID-19 to prevent progression to severe disease and/or hospitalization." When David Boulware, MD, MPH, an infectious disease physician and researcher at the...

    The cascade has begun. For those who have read at least several books on famine, little if any of this is suprise. Those who have read, say, 5-10 books on famine can go ahead and take the written test and likely be pretty predictive of what is too unfold. Witness how accurate I have been since January 2020 on food issues. Incredibly accurate. Reading history is like cheating. Soon, people will begin to die in small areas by the hundreds, then thousands. More countries will begin to shut food exports, as should the United States. To be clear, this exacerbates...

    GULF SHORES, Ala. (WALA) - In the most unlikely of outcomes, a Wisconsin man who lost his dentures in the Gulf of Mexico last Monday will be getting them back thanks to a bizarre stroke of luck. A Mississippi man, vacationing in Gulf Shores later the same week just happened to find them while snorkeling near the shore. The odds against finding the false teeth were tremendous, especially once you actor in the teeth were lost on a Monday. They weren’t found until that Friday and had moved more than two miles to the west. “They actually scared me,” said...

    A single mother of a biracial son is suing his school over its 'anti-racism' programme, saying he now sees things that don't go his way as racism. Melissa Riley, from Charlottesville in Virginia, said that her 13-year-old boy never saw himself as different to other students until the Albemarle School District introduced an 'anti-racism' programme to his middle school last spring. Speaking to Fox News, she said it was then that he began thinking in terms of race. 'We didn't have issues before. He is in eighth grade,' Riley told Fox News host Jesse Watters on Monday evening.

    Hulu has passed on “Rodham,” writer-producer Sarah Treem’s adaptation of the 2020 Curtis Sittenfeld novel that’s been in development at the streamer since summer 2020.

  • A Single Hormone That Can Help Increase Lifespan Has Been Identified in Mice

    Low-protein diets appear to have incredible benefits for the health and lifespans of rodents, fruit flies, and yeast. A new study in mice has now identified a single hormone that is essential for these curious anti-aging effects. The hormone is called fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21), and it is secreted by the liver. In recent years, studies have shown that FGF21 responds to protein restriction in male mice, improving energy expenditure and glucose tolerance while reducing body weight. Now, the same team of researchers has found FGF21 is required for the anti-aging effects, too. "Indeed, mice that are FGF21 deficient...

    The data about police shootings just didn't add up, but no one at Thomson Reuters wanted to hear it. If you are a devoted reader of Common Sense, by now you have surely noticed a trend: workplaces—in some cases, storied institutions—that turn hostile to independent thinking seemingly overnight. That’s what Paul Rossi experienced at Grace Church School. It’s what Jennifer Sey went through at Levi’s. It’s what Antonio García Martínez dealt with at Apple. And Roland Fryer at Harvard. And Gordon Klein at UCLA. And Maud Maron at Legal Aid. Now comes the story of Zac Kriegman, who, until not...

    CNBC ^ | 5/16/22 | Silvia Amaro
    The United States and the European Union are looking at how to improve food supply chains with export restrictions from India and other nations accentuating global problems, the EU’s trade chief told CNBC. G-7 foreign ministers warned over the weekend that the war in Ukraine is increasing the risk of a global hunger crisis. This is because Ukraine has been unable to export grains, fertilizers and vegetable oil, while the conflict is also destroying crop fields and preventing a normal planting season. This has increased the reliance on nations from other parts of the world for these products. But some...

    American Thinker ^ | 16 May, 2022 | Patricia McCarthy
    George C. Leef has written a wonderful, definitive book that lays out the difference between self-identified progressives and conservatives. The Awakening of Jennifer Van Arsdale, A Political Fable for Our Time is a fictionalized narrative about a Washington Post journalist -- a progressive leftist, of course -- who is chosen to write an official biography of the first woman president, Patricia Farnsworth. The facts of this woman’s eight years in office are essentially the Obama/Biden two terms in all but name. Their destructive policies, briefly interrupted by the successful presidency of Donald Trump, are all in play again. The Supreme...
