    News feeds online have filled up with photos of used personal protective equipment strewn about on sidewalks, streets and other public areas. And beyond the obvious environmental impact, there's a larger concern that the once-worn items have touched contaminated surfaces and could pose a biohazard threat for those who eventually clean them up. "Gloves protect you against contact with infectious materials. However, once contaminated, gloves can become a means for spreading infectious materials to yourself, other patients or environmental surfaces," the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in its PPE guidance. The World Health Organization has said people are...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Following more than a week of protests over the death of George Floyd in police custody in Minnesota, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Sunday a series of police reforms in New York City. The reforms come at the suggestion of the mayor’s task force on racial inclusion, which is co-chaired by first lady Chirlane McCray. De Blasio said the city will be moving funding from the NYPD to youth initiatives and social services.

    The one size fits all solution is going to ruin us as a nation. This needs to stop!! Below are what I propose as a common sense approach to dealing with COVID-19. Breaking us up into risk groups makes sense, at least to me. Group 1: Ages 0-40 This group does not need to practice social distancing or change any behavior with respect to each other in this group. This group can work, play and go about their daily lives as normal with the exception of respecting the practice of social distancing with group 2, 3 and 4. Group 2:...

    May 1999 | dead
    Author’s Note: Twenty years ago this week, I posted this parody screenplay for “Citizen Kane”, changing it into an all-Clinton cautionary tale. For 1998, some of it was a bit prophetic, some not so much. Many of the players have since died, others, unfortunately have not. It's pretty long, but 100% accurate. CITIZEN CLINTON Artwork by Registered.EXT. DREAMWORKS STUDIO - NEAR DAWN - 2023 The camera pans up a dark, cast iron gate. The camera zooms in on the giant initials “DW” at the top of the gate, before moving over the gate and into the park. In the distance,...

    At first, Safiya Wazir couldn’t believe what she was hearing. A second later, it sunk in – after a long day on her feet, Wazir, a pregnant 27-year-old refugee from Afghanistan, defeated lifelong Heights resident and four-term District 17 state incumbent Rep. Dick Patten, overcoming an opponent who said her lack of experience and status as a refugee would hurt her campaign. Instead, Wazir said those very things – as well as her drive to connect with voters through doorknocking, thank-you notes and election reminders – buoyed her campaign. “They were very excited there was someone new running for the...

    A female employee at Fremont Middle School in Las Vegas died of tuberculosis in mid-July after potentially exposing more than 100 people to the highly contagious disease, school and public health officials said Monday. Ann Schiller, the school’s principal, sent a phone message to parents on July 11 saying that “an individual at our school” had recently been diagnosed with an active case of tuberculosis. It said that public health officials would contact families “within the next few days” if their kids needed to be tested. Lynn Row, the chief nurse for the Clark County School District, said she could...

    Edward Snowden Tweeted the following: "If you're writing about the CIA/@Wikileaks story, here's the big deal: first public evidence USG secretly paying to keep US software unsafe." During the time of the dust up over Snowden, I wrote my Seminal article dealing with this. Under the 1996 Telecom Act, Software and Equipment manufacturers are required to provide backdoor access and were compensated to do it. Why? Because, it is unconstitutional to make such a demand. However, as "an Investor" in these companies, the givernment has the right of ownership and access to technologies they "invest in". That is how...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Of all the reporters with whom Donald Trump sparred during his campaign, a favorite target was NBC’s Katy Tur. Trump called Tur out by name more than once, as here and here. So it was fascinating to hear Tur, appearing on today’s Morning Joe, report that Trump was very friendly to her behind the scenes. She described two anecdotes. In the first, said Tur, Trump tried to pull her up on the stage to wave to the crowd “as if I was his wife or something.” View the video here.

    Rep. Lamar Smith is pushing ahead in his committee's effort to hold Hillary Clinton accountable for her private e-mail server while she was secretary of state. On Thursday, Smith, chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, announced that he is going to hold the Platte River Networks, which set up and maintained Clinton’s server, in contempt of Congress when lawmakers return to Washington following the November election. “Platte River continues to obstruct our committee’s investigation into the possible misuse security of former Secretary Clinton’s private e-mail server,” Smith told a packed press conference on Capitol Hill."
  • Was The 'Circle Of Fire' In The Sky Over Jerusalem Just Before Rosh Hashanah Real Or Fake

    At first I thought that this was fake, but now I don’t know what to think. On October 1st, a video was posted to YouTube that claimed to show a very strange “circle of fire” in the clouds that seemed to respond to the blowing of the shofars in the city of Jerusalem below. When this video came out, many immediately dismissed it as a fake because it is only 20 seconds long and because computer-generated graphics can produce these kinds of effects. If you have not seen the video yet, you can see it right here… Since so many...

    An Air France plane was being escorted to JFK airport in New York City this morning after an anonymous threat was made against the flight, a senior U.S. official told ABC News. The Maryland State Police Fusion Center received an anonymous call of a “chemical weapons threat” aboard Air France Flight 22, which is en route from Paris and is expected to land at the New York City airport later this morning. The threat is not considered to be credible at the moment, but when officials tried to reach Air France representatives they were unsuccessful because it is also a...
