# Animals / Pets / Alerts / Food Recalls
New bird flu strain threatens North American wildlife: Thousands of seabirds, geese, eagles and vultures are dead, as wildlife health experts recommend a revolution in disease management. Rresearchers have so far documented infections in 51 species, including bald eagles and great horned owls. That’s more than twice the number of species known to have been infected during the last North American HPAI outbreak, in 2014–15.

# Border / Immigration
Republicans Are Lying About Fentanyl to Scare Voters: By scapegoating migrants as a source of drugs at the border, demagogues obscure facts with a cloud of xenophobia

# Chemicals
Why getting PFAS out of our products is so hard, and why it matters: Found in products like food packaging, clothes and firefighting foam, PFAS have contaminated drinking water sources nationwide since becoming commercially available in the middle of the last century, building up in the environment where they won’t break down for a very long time.

# Covid / Pandemics / Biologicals
The Private Market Is No Place for Covid-19 Countermeasures: The U.S. will stop funding vaccines but says it wants equitable access. That’s not possible in a predatory system. Top: Officials recently announced Covid-19 ‘countermeasures’ – meaning vaccines, tests, and treatment would transition to the commercial market sooner than previously planned, with program funds set to run out as early as January 2023. Like handing over henhouse security to a fox and expecting more egg production in return.

Long COVID has forced a reckoning for one of medicine’s most neglected diseases: Many cases of long COVID are effectively ME/CFS by another name. The exact number is hard to define, but past studies have shown that 5 to 27 percent of people infected by various pathogens, including Epstein-Barr virus and the original SARS, develop ME/CFS. Even if that proportion is 10 times lower for SARS-CoV-2, the number of Americans with ME/CFS would still have doubled in the past three years.  “We’re adding an immense volume of patients to an already dysfunctional and overburdened system,” Beth Pollack, scientist at MIT

The Story Behind One of the Most Influential Scientific Articles in History: It took 15 months and a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to reveal that each of the five authors of ‘The proximal origin of SARS-CoV-2’ — the seminal article concluding COVID-19 didn’t escape from a lab had expressed private concerns about engineering or the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s store of novel coronaviruses.

The More COVID Shots You Get, the More Likely You’ll Get COVID. Here’s Why: Scientists warn that repeated COVID-19 boosters may result in lowered immunity through a process known as “original antigenic sin,” or “immune imprinting” — making you more susceptible to symptomatic infections.

# Education / Schools
In a surprise announcement Thursday, the Biden administration released a change to its plans to forgive student loans that will now exclude several million previously eligible Americans.

The Department of Education on Thursday tightened eligibility criteria for President Joe Biden’s student loan forgiveness plan as GOP-led states sued to block the relief. The department said those with privately owned federal student loans, including Federal Family Education Loans and Perkins Loans, can no longer apply for Biden’s student loan forgiveness, backtracking on a previous announcement that said those borrowers could consolidate their loans into federal Direct Loans to obtain relief money.

# Employment / Labor
Low-paid workers are unionizing. Corporations are spending a ton to stop them. A record number of workers are trying to form labor unions, a Center for Public Integrity analysis shows. Corporate America is alarmed.

Major government unions lose over 200K members: The top four public labor unions in the U.S. lost hundreds of thousands of members since a 2018 Supreme Court case that ruled government employees could not be forced to pay a union to keep their jobs. The Commonwealth Foundation released the report, which found that the top four public labor unions, AFT, AFSCME, NEA, and SEIU, lost nearly 219,000 members altogether since the Janus v. AFSCME ruling.

# Energy / Pipelines / Mining / Chemical
‘Their Price Strategies Are Bearing Fruit’: Oil and Coal Profits Surge 340%: A leading economist urged policymakers to “address corporate profiteering as a driver of inflation by reining in megacorporations and addressing the unsustainably high prices facing families around the country.”

# Environment / Climate / Interior / Infrastructure
Will the Supreme Court gut the Clean Water Act? The justices could remove federal protection from 80% of the Southwest’s streams. Industrial polluters asking the Supreme Court to exclude most wetlands and streams from Clean Water Act protections

River Deltas Are Running Out of Land: Estimates of many deltas’ stabilities in the face of sea level rise were overoptimistic. Millions of people live on river deltas, occupying land that exists in the delicate balance between a river’s push and the ocean’s pull. Deltas are inherently transient, but according to a new study, many may be even more precarious than once thought, with unexpectedly high levels of land loss threatening to submerge these low-lying landscapes.

More Than Half of Palm Species Threatened With Extinction, Study Finds: It’s hard to imagine a world without palm trees. Members of the recognizable Arecaceae family drop coconuts onto white-sand beaches, pierce their fronds through the greenery of rainforests and line glamorous boulevards from Los Angeles to Miami.

Mississippi Accused of ‘Intolerable’ Racial Discrimination in Jackson Water Crisis: The NAACP has filed a federal complaint with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) alleging violations of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and accusing the State of Mississippi of “gross mishandling” of the Jackson water crisis, a press release from the NAACP said. The complaint cited an extensive history of neglect and refusal to provide federal funding that amounted to racial discrimination.

# Environment / Climate / Global
George Monbiot: Environmental destruction is part of Liz Truss’s plan: The prime minister’s ideology encourages the extraction of as much income as possible from nature before abandoning it.

‘Dangerous Escalation’: Putin Condemned Over Illegal Annexation of Ukraine Territories. “Now more than ever,” said U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres, “we must work together to end this devastating and senseless war.”

# Gov / Politics / US
House Passes Funding Plan Hours Before Shutdown Deadline: The funding will holdover until Dec. 16, when Congress will face the same issue again.

Senate Approves $12.3 Billion in New Aid to Ukraine in Stopgap Spending Bill [I wonder what they are getting in return for all these billions of dollars being sent over there?] Latest round of spending on the war comes as Kyiv makes gains on the battlefield. President Joe Biden still has not used the remaining $2.1 billion in presidential drawdown authority to transfer weapons to Kyiv that Congress already approved in the Ukraine aid bill it passed in May. The authorization has an expiration date of Sept. 30. The Republican portrayal of that money as unused aid gone to waste is in dispute, though, as White House officials argue the new funding request builds on the old batch.

# Law Enforcement
Why Is a Neighborhood Street “Unsafe for Pedestrians or People Riding Bikes?”: An 8-year-old cycling was killed by a driver at a quiet intersection. Who’s really to blame?

# Legal / DOJ
DOJ Needs to Get Out of Its Own Way in Trump Investigations: DOJ’s defense of the ex-president in the E. Jean Carroll lawsuit contradicts Trump’s own lawyers and compromises the Mar-a-Lago probe.

Time to charge the true cost of fossil fuels: The laws of physics establish the rules on planet Earth. When scientists state that an increase in average planetary temperatures of 2 degrees Celsius will lead to irreversible climate catastrophes, this is not an opinion; it is based on well-established principles of climatology. Fossil fuel products have never been priced to include the true costs to society of the disease, death or planetary disruption they cause.

The U.S. Senate is expected to vote tonight on a spending bill that includes Sen. Joe Manchin’s energy permitting reforms.

# Covid / Pandemics / Biologicals
Differentiating between COVID misinformation and evolving science: The Western scientific enterprise is built upon the idea that a hypothesis’s power lies in its explanatory capability. It can never be fully “proven” but can be disproven. The hypothesis that fomites could transmit COVID was replaced by the hypothesis that it was spread primarily as a respiratory virus, which could explain more of the infections. The fomite hypothesis was not wrong or misinformation; it was midinformation.

Deep Investigation on Moderna’s Artificial human gene like SARS-Cov-2. Huge Plot EU, China, US Darpa, Fauci & Gates:
This study is grafted on the enormous suspicions and intrigues on the tests on chimeric superviruses carried out by Fauci himself between the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the University of North Carolina summarized in the dossier prepared by the American doctor David E. Martin who first detailed these very dangerous “dual use” vaccine-bioweapon trials (then confirmed by Russian experts)

They found many cases in which politicians or their close family members made stock trades in circumstances in which they could have had insider knowledge.

The Truth About Rainbow Fentanyl: It was never meant for kids, it’s not aimed at their Halloween basket, but it does represent a real threat for casual drug users. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50 times more potent than heroin and 100 times more potent than morphine.  Just two milligrams of fentanyl, which is equal to 10-15 grains of table salt, is considered a lethal dose.  Without laboratory testing, there is no way to know how much fentanyl is concentrated in a pill or powder.

An animal tranquilizer poisoning the heroin supply has drug policy experts worried: A tranquilizer used for animals is appearing more frequently in street drugs across North America, alarming drug policy experts and harm reduction advocates alike. When injected, the mixture of xylazine and fentanyl, sometimes called “tranq dope,” can also produce grisly injuries, such as lesions or open skin ulcers. Because they can be extremely painful, some individuals who use drugs will continue to inject into these open sores and wounds for relief. However, that can make things worse, causing the wounds to necrotize, or essentially rot on the body, often requiring amputation. Sometimes, it can even result in death.

Why is corn syrup in so many American infant formulas? “When we look on the scale, it’s roughly two out of 100  children who received this formula with corn syrup solids were obese compared to those who received the other formulas. And that was consistent at ages two, three, and four years,” Goran explained. “Of WIC participants, roughly 15 out of 100 will be obese by the time they age out of eligibility” at age four, said Christopher Anderson

Formulas for toddlers are a burgeoning business in the United States: Sales of the drinks more than doubled in recent years as companies convinced parents that their little ones needed the liquid boost. But many experts warn that these products, designed for children ages 1 to 3, fill no nutritional needs beyond what is available in a typical toddler diet, are subject to less regulation than infant formula, and are expensive.

The United States is a secular nation with no official religion, so the answer is No,” the editorial board wrote. “But to Republicans such as Florida Gov.
