‘Multiple disasters all in one day’: New Mexico’s brutal week of fire and flood | New Mexico

[ad_1] It’s been a harrowing week of fire and flood in New Mexico. Just days after a pair of fast-moving fires roared across drought-stricken landscapes and into communities, a tropical storm swirled north, unleashing downpours and golf ball-sized hail over scorched slopes that had only just burned. As the dueling dangers of two weather extremes converged, charred debris flowed into neighborhoods, crews were temporarily evacuated from the firefight as emergency officials pivoted from fire support to flood rescues, and strong winds swept up dried soils to create one of the largest dust storms the state has ever seen. Across the arid south-west, where fire risks typically rise with the temperatures in the spring before they are doused in a summer monsoon, weather patterns like these aren’t unheard of. But the climate crisis has supercharged extreme conditions, setting the stage for new types of catastrophes that are increasing in both intensity and frequency. When they overlap, the dangers grow. “We are used to these disasters, but I don’t think this agency has ever dealt with anything …

Lucy Letby trial: Former nurse’s status as a multiple murderer is important evidence, jury told | UK News

Lucy Letby trial: Former nurse’s status as a multiple murderer is important evidence, jury told | UK News

[ad_1] Lucy Letby’s status as a multiple murderer and attempted murderer is an “important piece of the evidence” when deciding if the former nurse tried to kill another infant, a jury has been told. Letby, 34, is on trial at Manchester Crown Court accused of the attempted murder of a baby girl known as Child K on 17 February 2016 when she worked as a nurse at the Countess of Chester Hospital’s neonatal unit. She has pleaded not guilty to the charge. Last summer, the defendant was convicted in a “very long trial” of seven murders and seven attempted murders relating to six other children, the court heard. Opening the case on Wednesday, prosecutor Nick Johnson KC told jurors: “Those other cases that I have mentioned do have an importance in this case because we suggest it’s not because you should convict her because of what she’s done in other cases, but what we are asserting is the relevance that it gives you significant evidence of what her intention was at the time. We say, …

First human case of H5N2 bird flu died from multiple factors: WHO

First human case of H5N2 bird flu died from multiple factors: WHO

[ad_1] GENEVA: A man infected with H5N2 bird flu, the first confirmed human infection with the strain, died from multiple factors, the World Health Organization (WHO) said on Friday (Jun 7), adding that investigations were ongoing. The WHO announced on Wednesday that the first laboratory-confirmed human case of infection with H5N2 avian influenza virus had been reported from Mexico. Mexico’s health ministry said the 59-year-old man had “a history of chronic kidney disease, type 2 diabetes (and) long-standing systemic arterial hypertension”. He had been bedridden for three weeks prior to the onset of acute symptoms, developing fever, shortness of breath, diarrhoea, nausea and general malaise on Apr 17. The man was taken to hospital in Mexico City on Apr 24 and died later that day. “The death is a multi-factorial death, not a death attributable to H5N2,” WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier told a media briefing in Geneva on Friday. “The patient came to the hospital after weeks of multi-factorial background of multi other diseases.” His body was subsequently routinely tested for flu and other viruses, and …

Nicholas Galitzine Says He Feels ‘Guilt’ For Portraying Multiple Queer Characters

Nicholas Galitzine Says He Feels ‘Guilt’ For Portraying Multiple Queer Characters

[ad_1] After rising to fame by playing queer characters in the rom-com Red, White & Royal Blue and the drama miniseries Mary & George, Nicholas Galitzine is clearing the air about his own sexuality. “I identify as a straight man,” Nicholas said in a new British GQ interview published on Wednesday. “But I have been a part of some incredible queer stories.” The British actor admitted he felt torn about taking on so many LGBTQ+ roles because of his heterosexuality. “I felt a sense of uncertainty sometimes about whether I’m taking up someone’s space, and perhaps guilt,” he explained. “At the same time, I see those characters as not solely their sexuality.” Nicholas with co-star Taylor Zakhar Perez in Red, White And Royal Blue Jonathan Prime/Prime Video The Idea of You star went on to clarify that the characters he plays on screen are totally separate from who he is off the clock, adding: “I am Nick, and I’m not my role.” Speaking with HuffPost UK, the English actor explained the “plethora of reasons” why …

1 dead, multiple injured as powerful storms, possible tornadoes barrel across the U.S.

[ad_1] One person was killed and others were injured after a suspected tornado struck the Columbia, Tennessee, area south of Nashville on Wednesday, authorities said. Columbia Mayor Chaz Molder said in a statement that one person died in the storms that hit near the community of around 41,000. “The city of Columbia did appear to avoid the worst of the storm in the city limits but very close by was a different story,” he wrote on social media. Maury Regional Health said it had received five patients, including the person who died. One of the injured was in serious condition and three suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, the hospital in Columbia said. “This is a developing situation with multiple agencies responding,” Maury Regional Health spokesperson Rita Thompson said. The possible tornado that touched down at around 5:55 p.m. tracked for approximately two miles, Maury County Fire Department Deputy Chief Richard Schatz told reporters Wednesday night. “Multiple houses have been completely destroyed,” he said. He said there was one death and multiple injuries, but did …

JFK’s Grandson Dons Multiple Personas to Call RFK Jr. a Lying “Prick” Who Goes “Way Freaking Back” With Trump

JFK’s Grandson Dons Multiple Personas to Call RFK Jr. a Lying “Prick” Who Goes “Way Freaking Back” With Trump

[ad_1] Last month, a large number of Kennedys endorsed Joe Biden for president, a turn of events that presumably stung fellow 2024 hopeful Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Now, another member of the family has made his feelings about Kennedy’s candidacy clear, albeit in a slightly more unorthodox way: Jack Schlossberg, a.k.a. John Bouvier Kennedy Schlossberg, a.k.a. John F. Kennedy’s grandson. In a series of videos on Instagram, Schlossberg alternatively inhabited a number of stereotypical personas to criticize his mother’s first cousin. “Jimmy” is a Kennedy fan with a thick Boston accent; “Wade,” a Southerner who works with horses; “Anthony,” an Italian American from Long Island; “Joshua,” an older Jewish man from New York; and “Tiny Tim,” appears to be a…beach bum/east Londoner. As Jimmy, Schlossberg tells viewers, of RFK Jr.: “You know, I’m a fan of his father. And you know his uncle? Rest in peace. I remember where I was the day he was killed, I mean it was a tragic day, the entire country wept. But listen, that guy, he’s a prick. The …

New research could revolutionize treatment of multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and brain cancer

New research could revolutionize treatment of multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and brain cancer

[ad_1] Scientists have shed light on a previously obscure aspect of brain biology, which may have profound implications for treating a variety of neurological conditions. (CREDIT: Creative Commons) In groundbreaking research from Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), scientists have shed light on a previously obscure aspect of brain biology, which may have profound implications for treating a variety of neurological conditions, including multiple sclerosis (MS), Alzheimer’s disease, and certain brain cancers such as glioma. Published in the prestigious journal Nature Neuroscience, this study investigates the intricate synapses between neurons and oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs), revealing their crucial role in myelin formation. Myelin, a protective sheath surrounding nerve cell axons, is essential for the efficient transmission of electrical signals throughout the nervous system. Disruptions in myelin production can lead to severe neurological issues, as seen in diseases like MS. The research team at OHSU, led by Kelly Monk, Ph.D., professor and co-director of the Vollum Institute, utilized cutting-edge single-cell imaging techniques on zebrafish to explore these neuron-OPC synapses. The transparency of zebrafish bodies provides a …

“Stunning On Multiple Levels”: DOJ Admits To Evidence Tampering In Trump Classified Docs Case

“Stunning On Multiple Levels”: DOJ Admits To Evidence Tampering In Trump Classified Docs Case

[ad_1] Special Counsel Jack Smith’s team admitted on Friday that key evidence in Trump’s classified documents case was altered or manipulated – leaving two different chronologies; one that was digitally scanned vs. what’s in the actual boxes. Smith also misled the court, after originally telling U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon that the boxes remained “in their original, intact form as seized,” when in a footnote they conceded that they removed classified documents and left placeholder sheets, which prosecutors acknowledged has created an “inconsistent” record – in which some of the documents are no longer in the same order as they appear in digital scans made in the fall of 2022. “The Government acknowledges that this is inconsistent with what Government counsel previously understood and represented to the Court,” the footnote reads, according to Just the News. The finding comes after Cannon ordered a review into whether the FBI may have seized legally privileged records in response to a request from Trump co-defendant Walt Nauta. “Since the boxes were seized and stored, appropriate personnel have had …
