Are Vaccines Fueling New Covid Variants? The author of an op-ed published this week in the Wall Street Journal suggested COVID-19 vaccines could be fueling new variants, a theory posited as far back as August 2021 by vaccinologist Geert Vanden Bossche. The new mutation in XBB.1.5 also allows the virus to bind more tightly to human cells through the ACE2 receptor, the doors the virus uses to enter human cells, making it more transmissible.

A lawsuit says the bank helped conceal the exploitation of women and girls by the convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

Great Salt Lake on track to disappear in five years, scientists warn: Unsustainable water use is pushing the lake toward collapse, researchers say, imperiling ecosystems and exposing millions of people to toxic dust. Currently, the lake is losing an average of 1.2 million acre-feet each year. One acre-foot equates to more than 300,000 gallons of water, per the Water Education Foundation. Why it matters: If the lake dries up, it could result in major health, environmental and economic consequences, the report says.

America’s spy agencies failed to protect us from China’s bio-warfare program: The US has nearly 20 intelligence agencies tasked with protecting its citizens from global bio-terror, none of which has yet to determine exactly how the coronavirus originated. American taxpayers shell out billions each year to our 18 spy agencies, the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) and NSA (National Security Agency) the best-known of them, so they can protect us from foreign threats. And these threats include COVID-19, which originated in China. At minimum, these agencies must use their incredible human spy-power and powerful technology to collect (or even steal) secrets to determine where threats originate so we can neutralize them. Because if we don’t, we will be dealing with these threats again and again.

‘Shook me to the core’: Threats to San Antonio schools, real or not, more than doubled in 2022: The Uvalde tragedy left students, parents and staff more willing to relay their suspicions. “Recently we have noticed an uptick in the number of incidents that come to our attention,” says San Antonio-based FBI special agent Michelle Lee.

We’re not entering a new Cold War with China, though it might be better if we were. At least the 20th-century struggle between the West and USSR had clear sides and a single goal: world domination. After decades of deepening ties and building bridges to the West, China is turning inward. It’s expanding its military, developing sophisticated new weapons and growing more belligerent. It’s starting to feel as if the arms races and power struggles of the old Soviet-American rivalry have come roaring back, Beijing taking Moscow’s former place at the heart of the communist world.

# Chemicals
Why the government fails to limit many dangerous chemicals in the workplace: Before his shift at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber plant in Niagara Falls, N.Y., in May 2021, a worker peed in a cup. Before he clocked out, he did it again. Goodyear shipped both specimens to a lab to measure the amount of a chemical called ortho-toluidine. The results, reviewed by ProPublica, showed that the worker had enough of it in his body to put him at an increased risk for bladder cancer, and that was before his shift. After, his levels were nearly five times as high. It’s no secret that the plant’s workers are being exposed to poison. Paralyzed by industry lawsuits from decades ago, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has all but given up on trying to set a truly protective threshold for ortho-toluidine and thousands of other chemicals. The agency has only updated standards for three chemicals in the past 25 years; each took more than a decade to complete.
