Read through our list to keep your family safe. 1 / 12 Taj Mahal, India India The radical disparity in wealth and class may explain some of the risk of scams and theft in this country. But according to John Gobbels, vice president and chief operating officer for Medjet (an international emergency service), it’s medical safety that actually makes India so dangerous. He explains that the U.S. State Department gives the country...

    A senior Aeroflot flight attendant told the publication that employees were instructed "not to record any breakdowns encountered during flights in the Cabin Log Book (CLB), but rather to verbally communicate the details of the issues and their location," according to a translation by independent Russian media outlet The Insider. A former pilot told Proekt that on a flight in January, he found a fuel leakage while starting the engines of a Boeing 737. When he called technicians to investigate the leak, they said it had been there for a while. "It had happened several times before, but there were...
  • BMW recalls 90,000 vehicles over "dire" risk from explosive Takata air bag inflators

    BMW is warning the owners of about 90,000 older vehicles in the U.S. not to drive them due to an increasing threat that the air bags might explode in a crash. The warning covers vehicles from the 2000 through 2006 that previously had been recalled to replace faulty and dangerous air bag inflators made by Takata. The company used ammonium nitrate to inflate the air bags in a crash. But the chemical can deteriorate over time when exposed to heat and can blow apart a metal canister, hurling shrapnel that can injure or kill drivers and passengers. Models involved in...

    Geoffrey Hinton was an artificial intelligence pioneer. In 2012, Dr. Hinton and two of his graduate students at the University of Toronto created technology that became the intellectual foundation for the A.I. systems that the tech industry’s biggest companies believe is a key to their future. On Monday, however, he officially joined a growing chorus of critics who say those companies are racing toward danger with their aggressive campaign to create products based on generative artificial intelligence, the technology that powers popular chatbots like ChatGPT. Dr. Hinton said he has quit his job at Google, where he has worked for...

    As Americans prepare to pack up their books and hit the beaches, many are hearing an increasingly strong warning from the U.S. government: Think twice before traveling to Mexico. As of today, the U.S. State Department has issued its strongest possible “do not travel” warning for five Mexican states — Colima, Michocan, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas and Zacatecas — due to “crime and kidnapping.” Of the 32 Mexican states, only two have a “normal precautions” designation, the lowest level. The popular tourist state of Quintana Roo, which includes vacation hotspots such as Tulum, Playa Del Carmen and Cancun, has a Level 2...

    Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the electoral college “has become a danger not just to democracy, but to the American people.” Partial transcript as follows: MARGARET BRENNAN: This is an incredible body of work, all coming to this conclusion now, what do you think Americans at home need to know? RASKIN: It’s a story of some real villainy and some real danger to democracy, but also of real heroism and commitment to American democratic freedom. And with democracy under attack all over the world, like with Putin invading Ukraine, and the Ukrainian people...

    Late last month an eight year old boy was attacked and taken away by a large crocodile while swimming in a river with his family outside of Cuatro Millas de Matina, Limon. After nearly a month of waiting for officials to find the boy and the animal, local residents took matters into their own hands. They formed a hunting party over the weekend and set out to find the crocodile they believed was responsible for the attack. They found the crocodile and they killed it. The crocodile was over four meters in length. The crocodile was cut open and they...

    For almost two years, COVID-19 vaccine holdouts have been the objects of earnest pleading and financial inducements, of social-media shaming and truth campaigns. They’ve missed weddings, birthday celebrations and recitals, and even forfeited high-stakes athletic competitions. Until last month, they were barred from entering the United States and more than 100 other countries. Now the unvaccinated are suddenly back in the mix. They’re dining in restaurants, rocking out at music festivals and filling the stands at sporting venues. They mingle freely in places where they used to be shunned for fear they’d seed superspreader events. It’s as if they’re no...

You have described it as it may be the last investigative public hearing, where we will try to round out the factual narrative. Could you put any meat on those bones for us?”
  • Routine childhood vaccines may raise the risk of asthma by a THIRD, shock Government-funded study finds

    09/28/2022 9:21:08 AM PDT · by algore · 10 replies
    Now a federally-funded study has found a possible link between vaccines containing aluminum and a higher risk of asthma in children. Results showed children who received all or most of their routine childhood shots had a 36 per cent higher risk of being diagnosed with persistent asthma by age five than kids who got fewer vaccines. Experts and health officials say the research has important shortcomings and is not a reason to change current vaccine programs that are proven to save lives. The study doesn't claim aluminum causes the breathing condition and instead suggests a casual association. More work is...

    We have been warned. The Washington Post on Monday published an editorial board piece that sought to pinpoint all the perceived dangers posed by the rise of Giorgia Meloni to become the next premier of Italy. While generously conceding “it would be a stretch to regard Ms. Meloni, who would be Italy’s first female premier, as a fascist,” the determinedly left-wing outlet still found plenty of space to set out its argument that the single mother could be the sum of all fears for Europe.

    Monday on FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich slammed the progressive left’s efforts to stop Tesla CEO Elon Musk from his attempt to take over social media giant Twitter. Gingrich praised Musk for wanting to fight for free speech and said the billionaire “represents a danger” to the left “because he doesn’t follow the rules.” He argued that Musk would not only be a “genuine threat” to Twitter but also to Facebook and Google because he would open up dialogue on those platforms.

    How Dangerous Are Masks for Children?Our public health agencies such as the CDC and NIH, and television medical experts seem unable to address key health messages that could have a dramatic effect in reducing risk of severe sequelae in higher-risk populations such as the minority and African-American population to the scourge of SARS-CoV-2. These agencies and media echo chambers squandered many opportunities to inform the public on simple yet very effective messaging (vitamin D supplementation, obesity control, early treatment etc.) that could have reduced morbidity and saved lives. They continue to. Not just for Covid-19, but for many other illnesses....

    Australia is currently suffering the largest rise in Covid-19 cases, hospitalisations and deaths across the country since the pandemic struck in March 2020, despite adopting strict Draconian policies that only allow the vaccinated to participate in society because authorities are wrongly labelling the unvaccinated a danger to public health.But according to official New South Wales Government data, it isn’t the unvaccinated population who are to blame, instead Australia is very much experiencing a pandemic of the vaccinated, with 9 in every 10 cases, and 8 in every 10 hospitalisations and deaths since November 26th 2021 recorded as being among the...

    A Maine medical licensing board has temporarily suspended the license of a veteran physician for allegedly spreading "misinformation" about COVID-19 as it conducts a 30-day investigation that will require her to undergo a psychological examination.Dr. Meryl Nass, who been a board-licensed internal physician for more than 40 years, was the subject of two complaints based, among other things, on her statements that the vaccines have serious safety issues and are ineffective at stopping infection and transmission of the virus. She called the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention a "criminal agency," pointing out that federal health officials have suppressed the...
