  1. Americans' optimism about country's direction over next year drops nearly 20 points As President Joe Biden completed 100 days in office, the country was optimistic about the coming year, but now, just after hitting the six-month mark, Americans' optimism about the direction of the country has plummeted nearly 20 points, a new ABC News/Ipsos poll finds. A majority -- 55% -- of the public say they are pessimistic about the direction of the country, a marked change from the roughly one-third (36%) that said the same in an ABC News/Ipsos poll published May 2. In the early May survey, Amer
  2. SoCal man, 34, who mocked vaccines dies of COVID A Southern California man in his 30s who openly mocked vaccines in social media posts has died after a hospitalization for COVID-19. Stephen Harmon had joked about the vaccine and declared he would never get one, tweeting modified Jay-Z lyrics "I got 99 problems but a vax ain't one." Even in his hospital bed, he remained defiant, declaring on Instagram "... I will not be getting vaccinated once I am discharged and released." Case numbers are skyrocketing once again, as the more-contagious Delta variant takes hold - and after the s
  3. If Canada is being a hypocrite, I post about it so others know. Unfortunately it happens too many times- from pollution, to racism, and the buried children.
  4. NASA investigates renaming James Webb telescope NASA is considering whether to rename its flagship astronomical observatory, given reports alleging that James Webb, after whom it is named, was involved in persecuting gay and lesbian people during his career in government. Keeping his name on the US$8.8-billion James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) — set to launch later this year — would glorify bigotry and anti-LGBT+ sentiment, say some astronomers. But others say there is not yet enough evidence against Webb, who was head of NASA from 1961 to 1968, and they are withholding judgement until the
  5. 'Nobody wants to work anymore' On a recent trip to Pennsylvania, I heard the phrase "Nobody wants to work anymore" over and over. The phrase has become common since businesses began reopening fully this past spring. Maybe you've seen it on a sign at your local Taco Bell drive-thru, or as part of a screed on social media: "Nobody wants to work anymore." The phrase has become strikingly common in current American society, and taken at face value, it stands to reason that everyone has collectively decided to stop working. On a recent trip near Reading, Pennsylvania, I he
  6. Biden goes too far in assurances on vaccines President Joe Biden offered an absolute guarantee Wednesday that people who get their COVID-19 vaccines are completely protected from infection, sickness and death from the coronavirus. The reality is not that cut and dried. The vaccines are extremely effective but “breakthrough” infections do occur and the delta variant driving cases among the unvaccinated in the U.S. is not fully understood. Also Biden inflated the impact of his policies on U.S. jobs created in his first half-year in office, misleadingly stating his administration ha
  7. Don’t Call Them ‘Shark Attacks,’ Scientists Say On the beaches of Western Australia, by California’s crashing waves and in sight of Hawaii’s blue depths, “shark attacks” are slowly disappearing, at least as a phrase used by researchers and officials who have been rethinking how to describe the moments when sharks and humans meet. Last week, two Australian states drew swift mockery when The Sydney Morning Herald reported that they were moving away from the phrase in favor of terms like “bites,” “incidents” and “encounters.” Shark scientists have long called for less sensational la
  8. It's utterly amazing how clueless some of you are, it's like you breath and walk, but that's about it. Young people are the ones avoiding vaccinations, and they largely vote for Democrats. They got marching orders not to trust the vaccines because of Trump. Yes, I have talked to some of them. For the really clueless living in Canada, try and get out more, it might help.
  9. Democrats said last year not to trust the vaccine because of Trump, so people don't. I have already posted them admitting it so it's not like I made this up. Why would anyone think the vaccine targets people based on skin color anyways? That's straight out of the democrats. PS Let's not forget that the Democrat states were the ones who started to spread this to begin with. The said this was nothing to worry about.
  10. Don't forget that smoke in the atmosphere is good for the climate as it blocks heating, so they should be cheering this news.
  11. Northeast Skies Turn Smoky Due to Western Wildfires Millions of people across the U.S. and Canada woke up to smoke-choked air on Tuesday. The source: intense wildfires burning thousands of miles away in western North America. Yes, the western wildfires are now everyone’s problem, proving for the millionth time that nobody will be spared from climate change and that the impacts can be seen with our very eyes (and felt in our very sore throats and clogged sinuses). Monster blazes ignited in Oregon and British Columbia earlier this month, with more fires exploding in California recently.
  12. 'I'm sorry but it's too late' - unvaccinated patients beg for shot An Alabama physician glumly says she is making "a lot of progress" in encouraging people to vaccinate – as she struggles to keep them alive. Dr. Brytney Cobia, a hospitalist at Grandview Medical Center in Birmingham, wrote in a recent Facebook post she is treating a lot of young, otherwise healthy people for serious coronavirus infections. "One of the last things they do before they're intubated is beg me for the vaccine," she wrote. "I hold their hand and tell them that I'm sorry, but it's too late." In her
  13. Fauci says polio would still exist in the US if the 'false information' If the health misinformation currently spreading regarding coronavirus vaccines existed during the days of polio, it would have never been eradicated, Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden's chief medical adviser, said Saturday. Asked by CNN's Jim Acosta about the misinformation spread by Fox News regarding the Covid-19 vaccines, Fauci said, "We probably would still have polio in this country if we had the kind of false information that's being spread now." He added, "If we had that back decades ago, I would
  14. NFL will play the ‘Black National Anthem’ before every game “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” widely recognized as the “Black National Anthem,” was written over 120 years ago by James Weldon Johnson The NFL has announced it will play the Black National Anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” before each game in the 2021-22 season as part of a $250 million investment towards social justice. The league will also continue many of the social justice initiatives implemented last season, including featuring messages of antiracism and unity on helmets and the field, and communicating to fans th
  15. Coal Shows Its Staying Power as Economies Bounce Back Coal use is surging in some of the world’s largest economies as electricity demand rebounds from the pandemic, illustrating the challenges to countries looking to wean themselves off the dirty but reliable fossil fuel. Coal was in decline for years in many countries, but its use is now picking up in the U.S., China and Europe despite growing pressure from governments, investors and environmentalists to curb carbon emissions. The leading reason for the uptick—which has pushed coal prices to multiyear highs—is rising power demand as
