    Dr. DiCenco says the numbers in a state health department alert about STD’s and HIV among 15-24 year olds in Beaver County are “quite concerning and we, in our practice, have seen an uptick in the number of Gonorrhea and Chlamydia cases.” The state alert says the cases of Gonorrhea among 15-24 year old men and women were up 34 percent in 2017 compared to 2016. HIV was up almost threefold. “The HIV rate increasing 300 percent is very concerning,” says Dr. DiCenco. So why are the numbers among young people rising? Students on the Carnegie Mellon Campus had these...

    There will be no medal for American skier Lindsey Vonn in the Olympic super-G at the Pyeongchang Games. She had a fast run going before a mistake near the bottom cost her valuable time. Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein leads after the opening eight racers. Vonn will have another chance in the downhill. At age 33, she is trying to become the oldest woman to win an Olympic Alpine medal. She won bronze in the super-G at the 2010 Vancouver Games — to go with her downhill gold — but missed the 2014 Sochi Olympics after surgery on her right knee.

    Men are scared, and feminists are delighted. But the urge to call out and punish male sexual transgression is bound to clash with an inescapable truth: We’re all in this together, men and women. Consider what’s happening in the capital of Florida. Female staffers and lobbyists have found “many male legislators will no longer meet with them privately,” reported The Miami Herald. “I had a senator say, ‘I need my aide here in the room because I need a chaperone,’ ” lobbyist Jennifer Green told the paper. “I said, ‘Senator, why do you need a chaperone? . . . Do you feel...

He says they're suspected to have taken so-called bath salts, which are chemicals that mimic the effects of cocaine and other powerful drugs.

    A German woman who joined ISIS was sentenced to death by an Iraqi court Sunday, becoming the first female foreign fighter to face capital punishment for links to the terror group. The unnamed woman was sentenced to hang for providing logistical support to the militants and participating in attacks on security forces, said Abdul-Sattar al-Birqdar, a spokesman for Iraq’s Supreme Judicial Council in Baghdad. The woman can appeal the sentence. Germany, which has previously called on Iraq to abolish the death penalty, has yet to comment on the case. Al-Birqdar said the woman, of Moroccan descent, admitted she joined the...

The California governor revealed that he has a “hunch” legal proceedings could pave the way for cuts to public employees’ benefits. “There is more flexibility than there is currently assumed by those who discuss the California rule,” Brown said during the briefing.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s job security is in question after taking withering fire from fellow Republicans this week, including from two prominent House conservatives who called on him to resign. Two leaders of the House Freedom Caucus, Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), called on Sessions to step aside in an op-ed Friday, charging he has lost control of the Department of Justice and the FBI. Sessions has also come under criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike for his decision to rescind the Obama-era Cole memo, which gave states the space to legalize marijuana without fear of federal...

    An antifa agitator who had been spouting off about virtues of communism while counter-protesting a pro-Trump “March For Jesus” in Portland, Oregon, was run over by a small pickup truck. The unidentified, uhh, person (gender unclear) apparently had some kind of weapon, as you can hear some of the pro Trump command the person (?) to get rid of their weapon. The communist then bolts across the Hawthorne bridge, only to be HIT SQUARE ON by a pickup truck, who had just emerged beyond the trusses of the bridge, and was likely unable to see the person (?) running through...

    In the first century, a doctor called Aretaeus of Cappadocia described the rotting smell of "Egyptian ulcers." Ancient Chinese medical literature mentions a disease called "children-killing carbuncle." In 17th century Spain there were references to an illness known as "the strangler." They were talking about diphtheria, a highly infectious respiratory disease that colonizes a person's nose and throat, creating a thick layer of dead cells that can block the airway. It has always had a reputation for sickening children. With the introduction of a highly effective vaccine in the 1920s and early '30s, diphtheria faded away in much of the...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton commented Thursday night on longtime NBC host Matt Lauer's firing, remarking that she believes in the concept of karma a little more "every day," Philly Voice reports. Clinton was speaking in Philadelphia as part of her national book tour promoting her memoir, "What Happened," which looks at her unsuccessful 2016 presidential campaign. “Every day I believe more in karma,” Clinton said when asked about Lauer's firing, before lumping him in with several other “men who shaped the narrative” who have been fired over similar allegations of sexual misconduct. “The only way we will get...

Rose told the Post that he was "deeply embarrassed" and apologized for his behavior. Rose's PBS show features his in-depth interviews with newsmakers....

From The Ringer’s Kevin Clark to Bill Barnwell of ESPN to that old NFL bible—The Weekly Standard—this week saw a ton of NFL observers examine the league’s quality of play as well as the perception behind that. The headline of Clark’s piece didn’t hold back: How Football Stopped Being Fun. How does that correlate with NFL ratings, which is more the focus of this column? Well, that depends on how you want to...
