  • Missouri Bill Prevents Doctors Being Disciplined If They Prescribe Ivermectin Or Hydroxychloroquine For Covid

    Missouri lawmakers passed legislation that prevents state licensing boards from disciplining doctors who prescribe ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.Sponsored by Rep. Brenda Kay Shields (R-Mo.), HB 2149 also bars pharmacists from questioning doctors or disputing patients regarding the usage of such drugs and their efficacy.With a convincing 130–4 vote in the House, HB 2149 passed both chambers on May 12 and currently heads to the office of Gov. Mike Parson to be potentially signed into law.“The board shall not deny, revoke, or suspend, or otherwise take any disciplinary action against, a certificate of registration or authority, permit, or license required by this...

    A molar discovered in a cave in Laos shows where the enigmatic Denisovans could have interbred with the ancestors of modern humans. A tooth found inside of a mountain cave in Laos has solved one of the biggest scientific mysteries of the Denisovans, a branch of ancient humans that disappeared roughly 50,000 years ago. Since 2010, when Denisovan teeth and finger bones were first discovered, DNA testing has revealed that the enigmatic hominins were among the ancestors of people alive today in Australia and the Pacific. But scientists didn’t understand how the Denisovans, whose scant remains had been found only...

  • Luke Guzelis: The worst, most dangerous, most destructive invasive species? Meow

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | May 17, 2022 | Luke Guzelis
    Many news stories stress that our ecosystems are under assault by Burmese pythons and Asian carp. This leads people to conclude that it is the less charismatic fauna such as reptiles and fish that are the most threatening of invasive species. Proposed amendments to the Lacey Act that the U.S. House passed Feb. 4 seem to perpetuate this narrative, with a proposed ban on all exotic animal species moving across state lines. (The 122-year-old Lacey Act bans trafficking in illegally taken fish, wildlife, and plants.) But one animal that the International Union for Conservation of Nature considers among the world’s...

  • Pollution's fatal threat gains urgency after 9 million died in one year

    Pollution cuts more lives short worldwide than war, terrorism, malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, drugs or alcohol.That's the takeaway of a report published Tuesday in The Lancet Planetary Health, which analyzed the combined health risks of air, water and toxic chemical pollution in 2019. The results show that pollution is responsible for around 9 million premature deaths each year, or one in six globally. That puts its toll on par with smoking."We haven't been yelling from the top of the streets, saying, 'Look at this!' loud enough,'" said Richard Fuller, the report's lead author and the founder and CEO of the nonprofit...
  • University of Illinois Chicago wants to ban the word 'obesity' because focusing on body size is 'rooted in racism'

    Multiple woke academics now claim the word 'obesity' is racist and should be dropped in favor of 'people with larger bodies. The University of Illinois Chicago's school of public health published a health brief titled: 'Addressing weight stigma and fatphobia in public health' that explored 'the association between racism, weight, and health.'

    Princeton University is planning to fire one of the most distinguished classics professors in the country, Joshua Katz, after his criticism of the school’s racial politics made him the target of student protests and the subject of two separate university investigations. University president Christopher Eisgruber—who in 2020 alleged that Katz had failed to exercise his free speech "responsibly"—passed his recommendation that Katz be stripped of tenure and fired to the university’s board of trustees last week, according to three sources with firsthand knowledge of the situation.
  • Hillary Defeated Again: Hulu Passes On ‘Rodham’ After Nearly 2 Years In Development

    Published 3 hours ago on May 18, 2022 By Chief Editor Hillary Clinton took another loss as Hulu has passed on a show about her that had been in development at the network for nearly two years. “Rodham” is based on the novel of the same name, which tells the story of an alternate universe in which Hillary does not marry Bill Clinton, but instead serves as a Northwestern University professor before running for president in 2016. “Rodham is a nauseating, moving, morally suggestive, technically brilliant book that made me think more than any other in recent memory about the...

    On Saturday, a couple with a beautiful home in Rancho Peñasquitos, located in San Diego, California, decided to go out for lunch. Normally, they’d spend their Saturday afternoon lounging in their backyard oasis, swimming in their pool, but on that particular day they decided to go out instead — a choice that ended up making all the difference. That’s because at about 1:00 p.m. that same day, a blue BMW went off the road, crashed through a fence and landed upside-down in their once-perfect, sparkling pool.

    The generation that did everything it was told to do is keen on burning down the very culture which sold them a lie. Perhaps you too are devastated by this week’s crushing news—Meghan Markle’s Netflix show has been canceled. The show, of course, a one-word title by the name of “Pearl,” is about an oppressed young woman who deigned to overcome obstacles such as someone not validating her every whim, not affirming nor flattering her every thought. I wrote this before bothering to Google the name and premise of the now regrettably canceled show—unremarkably, my assumptions were faultless. Meghan would...

    Once again, Florida’s Ron DeSantis proves he has all the right enemies. If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, you just might be named Ron DeSantis. Let’s recap. On April 22, the Florida governor signed the “Stop WOKE Act,” which, in the words of USA Today, “prohibits any teaching that could make students feel they bear personal responsibility for historic wrongs because of their race, color, sex or national origin.” The law was necessary because, as you can see in any number of YouTube videos of school-board meetings around...

    When are conservatives going to fight back against the violence of the left? It's glaringly obvious that the radicals in the Democrat party are using tactics that put many people in fear of physical assault or damage to their property. This became clear during the Trump presidency, when proud Americans were beaten up in public for wearing hats supporting him. Viral videos of hats being snatched from the heads of people in restaurants, in shopping malls, or just walking along a street became common. Did we ever think the time would come when people wearing caps that read "Make America...

    "Anti-racism" is a totalitarian religion dressed up in noble language. It is not uncommon in today's racially saturated political climate for a student of higher education to receive a handful of emails from their university's president or provost with a reminder that it is no longer satisfactory to unostentatiously declare yourself "not racist." Instead, you must "do the work" (as Karl Marx would say) and be a fervent "anti-racist." Students with little or zero understanding of their university leaders' unadulterated ignorance, or a calculated warped propaganda campaign (which is more likely the case), would be forgiven for taking the term...

    When last we heard from Fairfax County, parents were trying to get the school board to prohibit books with pornographic sexual descriptions (a criminal act in Virginia). Now, parents have something new to worry about: On May 25, the school board plans to approve a set of rules that will make it a Level 4 offense—right up there with assault, battery, and arson—for children in grades K-12 who “malicious[ly] misgender” or commit an “outing related to gender identification.” SNIP I recommend an article at The Federalist for its rundown of the gender madness that has infected Fairfax County schools going...

    Sundance is raising the alarm that John Durham is not going to prosecute FBI and DOJ officials for their role in perpetrating the Russia Hoax. Opening arguments were presented Tueaday in the trial of Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussman for lying to then-FBI general counsel James Baker, claiming that he wasn’t working for the campaign when he brought charges of ties between Donald Trump and Russia to the FBI. Sundance writes: As noted by Charlie Savage, prosecutor Deborah Shaw, a member of the Durham team, delivered the opening remarks to frame the government position in the case. The telling remarks...

    The data is clear: Residents of Democrat-run states are fleeing at alarming rates. Many are choosing Republican-run states as their destinations of choice. And while it’s not clear yet what this mass migration of “leftugees” means for the power of blue and red states, one thing is clear: Liberal policies are failing in real-time on a spectacular scale that this country has never before seen. Studies Show Blue States Are Hemorrhaging ResidentsAccording to a new survey that studies the migration patterns of Americans within the United States, liberal-run New Jersey led the nation with 70 percent of all people involved...

    The proposed amendments by the U.S. to the International Health Regulations do not degrade the sovereignty of the United States. The proposed amendments will reduce the power of a country to prevent the World Health Organization from declaring that a public health emergency exists in this country. There is nothing in the proposed amendments that obligates the U.S. to accept any such declaration by the WHO. I cannot find anything in any American law or treaty to which the United States is a signatory that obligates any part of the federal government or any state government to agree with any...

    Philadelphia's School District encouraged its staff to attend the largest free transgender wellness conference in the world, where extremely explicit content was shared in the name of breaking down barriers. The annual event was held online, organized by the Mazzoni Center, which under the leadership of Sultan Shakir works to improve health and wellbeing among the LGBTQ community in Philadelphia. The School District, led by Superintendent William Hite, emailed teachers and school staff on their mailing list in July 2021 to invite them to attend, describing it as an opportunity to 'learn more about the issues facing the trans community.'...
