# Covid / Pandemics / Biologicals
Thromboembolic events and hemorrhagic stroke after mRNA (BNT162b2) and inactivated (CoronaVac) covid-19 vaccination: A self-controlled case series study: A total of 5,526,547 doses of BNT162b2 and 3,146,741 doses of CoronaVac were administered. A total of 334 and 402 thromboembolic events, and 57 and 49 hemorrhagic stroke cases occurred within 28 days after BNT162b2 and CoronaVac vaccination, respectively.

Acute Arterial Ischemic Stroke Following COVID-19 Vaccination: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis:  Acute arterial-ischemic-stroke (AIS) has been reported as a rare adverse-event following COVID-19-vaccination with mRNA or viral-vector vaccines. However, data are sparse regarding the risk of post-vaccination AIS and its potential association with thrombotic-thrombocytopenia-syndrome

Myocarditis Cases Reported After mRNA-Based COVID-19 Vaccination in the US From December 2020 to August 2021: In this descriptive study of 1626 cases of myocarditis in a national passive reporting system, the crude reporting rates within 7 days after vaccination exceeded the expected rates across multiple age and sex strata. The rates of myocarditis cases were highest after the second vaccination dose in adolescent males https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2788346__;!!On18fmf1aQ!zrw9FYYtVIjNAln3PankC3QI2ivwR0Wi01vTZo3tNcPjdAwLleWEut2C5Tzf7tn30ZVND9t0D8noNhUCGkhru6Qqe13POC6T$

# Economy / Finance / Trade / Banks
Social Security Overpays Billions to People, Many on Disability, Then It Demands the Money Back: During the 2022 fiscal year, the agency clawed back $4.7 billion of overpayments, while another $21.6 billion remained outstanding, according to a report by SSA’s inspector general. One consequence is a costly collection effort for the government and a potentially devastating ordeal for the beneficiary.

# Employment / Labor
UAW Strikes at Select Plants: The ‘Stand Up Strike’ is intended to keep the Big Three automakers off-balance. At midnight, the United Auto Workers began targeted work stoppages at plants across the United States.

Biden To Deliver Remarks On United Auto Workers Strike After Talks Collapse: White House officials have stressed that Biden believes in collective bargaining and has wanted a deal that bolsters middle-class jobs.

# Energy / Pipelines / Mining / Chemicals A new Biden administration rule gives states and tribes more power to block pipelines and other projects that could affect water quality: States and Native American tribes will have greater authority to block energy projects such as natural gas pipelines that could pollute rivers and streams under a final rule issued by the Biden administration.

Inside The U.S.-China War Over Clean Energy: Tensions from the US-China tech war have spilled over into green tech and climate efforts. The pivotal role of Indonesia’s vast nickel reserve in the global electric vehicle (EV) revolution and the high-stakes geopolitical chess game the mineral has ignited.

‘It’s just crazy’: How the U.S.-China energy race imperils the climate fight: Beijing’s control of the technology behind batteries and solar panels is complicating Washington’s efforts to make a swift transition from fossil fuels.

Pipeline problems could cut off nation’s 100-year gas supply:  A recent analysis determined the United States sits on a century’s worth of gas supply, but industry experts warn there aren’t enough pipelines to access it. The report from the Potential Gas Committee, part of the Colorado School of Mines, found that the country had technically recoverable gas resources of 3,353 trillion cubic feet, a 0.5% decrease from its 2020 estimate.

# Environment / Climate / Interior / Infrastructure The US and China must unite to fight the climate crisis, not each other: Climate change is a global crisis and cannot be solved by any one country alone. If the United States, China and other industrialized countries do not come together to dramatically decrease greenhouse gas emissions, the world we leave our children and future generations will become increasingly unhealthy and uninhabitable.

U.S. Should Not Surrender Clean Energy Technology to China, DOD Official Says: China has made it very clear that clean energy technology also results in geostrategic power, the deputy assistant secretary of defense for environment and energy resilience said.

How Rising U.S.-China Tensions May Hurt Efforts to Fight Climate Change: A lack of dialogue between the world’s two largest emitters is worrying, and the politicization of the climate agenda is a dangerous new road. A rift may make the U.S. clean energy transition more difficult, given its dependence on China’s technology exports; it may also hurt global efforts to stop climate change.

Manufacturers, efficiency advocates reach agreement on rules for refrigerators, other appliances: The joint support ‘clears the path ahead’ for new standards, said Appliance Standards Awareness Project Executive Director Andrew deLaski, and together will lobby the U.S. Department of Energy to adopt them.

Cities and Indigenous communities in the Great Lakes region are grappling with a host of problems related to severe climate change-related flooding: Archaic wastewater systems, crumbling infrastructure and segregated housing in the region create a perfect storm of flood vulnerability amid excessive rain, overflowing rivers and storm surges. Six newsrooms, all members of the Institute for Nonprofit News, joined forces to explore various issues throughout the region, from flood-vulnerable neighborhoods to archaic infrastructure to wild rice harvests.

Earth is no longer a ‘safe operating space for humanity.’ Climate change isn’t even the biggest problem: Human activities are causing dramatic effects on Earth’s environmental conditions. From logging to plastic pollution to greenhouse gas emissions, we’re changing the living conditions on the planet. Study looks into the planetary boundaries and how we are affecting them https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://www.zmescience.com/ecology/earth-is-no-longer-a-safe-operating-space-for-humanity-climate-change-isnt-even-the-biggest-problem/__;!!On18fmf1aQ!zrw9FYYtVIjNAln3PankC3QI2ivwR0Wi01vTZo3tNcPjdAwLleWEut2C5Tzf7tn30ZVND9t0D8noNhUCGkhru6Qqex3eYCCe$

# Environment / Climate / Interior / Infrastructure / Global Environmental activists are being killed all over for trying to protect the planet: Every other day, an environmental defender is killed. At least 177 land and environmental defenders (or one person every other day) were killed last year for safeguarding the environment.

# Gov / Politics
Hawks want Biden to take the fight with Russia global: Whatever Biden has done in support of Ukraine, hawks complain that he has been too slow and too stinting in what the U.S. provides, and they have often urged Washington to intensify or widen the war. Fortunately for the U.S. and Europe, Biden has ignored their most aggressive demands and slow-walked the rest.

How Much Aid Has the U.S. Sent Ukraine? Here Are Six Charts.

Before Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy even started his address to Congress, Republicans had settled on their response: President Joe Biden is too weak on Russia.

Biden asks Congress for $24 billion in more Ukraine assistance: President Joe Biden is asking Congress for more than $24 billion for Ukraine and other international needs as he works to sustain support for the war amid signs of softening support among Americans.

Biden: ‘Ukraine Will Never Be a Victory for Russia. Never’: After an unprecedented visit to Ukraine, President Joe Biden told a Warsaw crowd that “brutality will never grind down the will of a free Ukraine. Ukraine will never be a victory for Russia. Never.”

Nearly $2 million in ‘dark money’ pours into historic Virginia campaigns: Independent political groups backed largely by “dark money” organizations and wealthy donors have spent nearly $1.7 million on Virginia candidates this election cycle, raising concerns about transparency and the influence of outside money in the tightly contested battle for control of the General Assembly.

# Juvenile Justice System
Incarcerated Youth at Angola Shed Spotlight on Louisiana’s Cruel Juvenile System: Louisiana has until Friday to remove children from its notorious state penitentiary at Angola after a federal judge found they were being held in “intolerable” conditions that included prolonged solitary confinement, punishment with mace and handcuffs, and inadequate education and mental health care. Children, some as young as 15, incarcerated at notorious Angola prison, which has reputation for brutality and violence

# Medical Alternatives / Herbology
Poisonous Yellow Oleander Found In Alternative Weight-Loss Drugs: Tests in a lab in Oregon showed that in nine out of 10 diet pills and health food products, what was labeled as Tejocote root was yellow oleander, which is poisonous and sometimes deadly. Some products have been withdrawn, but the FDA has warned that other, similarly-labeled ones remain on sale. The wave of Ozempic and Wegovy is hard to ignore. Constant demand has led to supply shortages and those seeking quick results have found themselves making rash decisions and purchasing unregulated alternatives.

# Medical / Health
Rural Nursing Home Supporters Fear Proposed Staffing Standards Will Trigger More Closures: Good Samaritan Society President Nate Schema said he fears the proposed federal staffing standards would spark more closures, forcing rural residents to seek care far from their hometowns. Family members would not be able to visit as often, he said. “Are they going to have to drive 20 or 30 or, God forbid, 100 miles?”

ER visit times stretch longer as hospitals face staffing crunch: Increasing ER visit times are an indication that a hospital may be understaffed relative to a community’s need or is facing other issues. “Long stays in the emergency department before a patient leaves may be a sign that the emergency department is understaffed or overcrowded,” per CMS.

Alzheimer’s disease is partly genetic − studying the genes that delay decline in some may lead to treatments for all: Despite decades of starts and stops, new treatments and key genetic discoveries are giving researchers great hope for slowing or eventually preventing Alzheimer’s disese. In 2019 and 2023, researchers identified changes in at least two other genes that markedly delayed the onset of disease symptoms in people with familial Alzheimer’s disease mutations. These mutated genes were found in a very large family in Colombia whose members tended to develop Alzheimer’s symptoms by their 40s.

# Medical Science
Public perspectives about pharmacogenetic testing and managing ancillary findings; Pharmacists explain the risks and benefits of pharmacogenetic testing:  Pharmacogenetic (PGx) tests are intended to improve therapeutic outcomes through predicting a patient’s likelihood to respond to or experience an adverse effect from a specific treatment. In addition, PGx testing may also generate ancillary, or incidental, disease information unrelated to the purpose for which the test was ordered. Pharmacogenetic (PGx) testing is considered to be one of the most promising clinical applications in personalized medicine, with the potential to improve therapeutic outcomes through reduction of adverse drug responses and increased likelihood of response https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3306589/__;!!On18fmf1aQ!zrw9FYYtVIjNAln3PankC3QI2ivwR0Wi01vTZo3tNcPjdAwLleWEut2C5Tzf7tn30ZVND9t0D8noNhUCGkhru6Qqe5b3I7Px$

# UFO Disclosure / Other
NASA joins the still controversial search for UFOs: NASA officially joined the search for UFOs, but reflecting the stigma attached to the field, the US space agency wouldn’t identify the director of the new program . The official’s appointment is the result of a year-long NASA fact-finding report into what NASA calls “unidentified anomalous phenomena (UAP).”

UFO Disclosure: The Most Significant Law in Human History? After hearing sworn testimony on evidence of alien intelligence, Congress is now drafting a law that will require agencies to disclose information to the public. That Congress is taking the matter seriously in the first place, implies that the testimony and further evidence provided behind closed doors has a substantial basis in fact.

U.S. recovered non-human ‘biologics’ from UFO crash sites, former intel official says: Three military veterans testified in Congress’ highly anticipated hearing on UFOs, including a former Air Force intelligence officer who claimed the U.S. government has operated a secret “multi-decade” reverse engineering program of recovered vessels. He also said the U.S. has recovered non-human “biologics” from alleged crash sites.
