If you think the pandemic hasn’t taken a toll on the mental health of young people, ponder these two facts from a new review: one in four are suffering from depression, while one in five are struggling with anxiety.

“Being socially isolated, kept away from their friends, their school routines and extracurricular activities during the pandemic has proven to be difficult on youth,” said lead researcher Sheri Madigan. She is an assistant professor in the department of psychology at the University of Calgary, in Canada.

“An important consideration for keeping schools open should be the mental health and well-being of youth,” Madigan said.

Amazon Web Services recently won a secret government cloud computing contract worth about $10 billion from the National Security Agency, an agreement that’s being challenged by Microsoft, Nextgov reports.

The contract, which is codenamed “WildandStormy,” was not publicly announced, but Microsoft was informed of the deal in July, prompting the company to lodge a bid to protest with the Government Accountability Office.

These filings revealed the code name and show that the deal is the second major cloud computing agreement that the U.S. intelligence community has made in the last year, after the CIA split its C2E contract between five companies, including AWS and Microsoft, as well as Google, Oracle, and IBM.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, 3.87 million workers quit their jobs in June, which is close to the record set this past April of 3.99 million.

The Colorado-based star had been recording in Nashville when she and a friend shared a Lyft home from a girls’ night out, with the pal dropped off first, Dunn said.

The driver then pulled over less than a mile from her house, she said.

“Before I could even get my shoes off or get my phone to try and call 911, he grabbed me by the collar, ripped me out of the backseat and slammed me face-first down into a ditch,” she told People.

“Somehow in the scuffle, I thought I called 911, but I didn’t even get the number right. But it was a miracle. They called me back.

Boakye is free on $1,000 bond. He has been charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly physically removing a female passenger

Parent EVISCERATES School Board Over CENSORSHIP

Mike Lindell says Biden committed massive voter fraud even in states Trump easily won

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell on Tuesday alleged that President Joe Biden committed massive voter fraud even in the state of Texas — but apparently not enough fraud to defeat former President Donald Trump there.

Via Media Matters’ Bobby Lewis, Lindell showed the audience at his “Cyber Symposium” a series of slides showing what he claims are the “true” totals of the 2020 election.

In Texas, Lindell alleges, Trump actually received around 6.4 million votes, compared to 4.8 million for Biden.

This is a big discrepancy between the final tally in Texas, which showed that Trump received 5.9 million votes, compared to 5.3 million for Biden.

Cyber Symposium August 2021

Mike Lindell’s Cyber Symposium 2021 will be LIVE on FrankSpeech.com. Starting August 10th, a non-stop, 72-hour event will be held with a 5 million dollar challenge! Exciting, right? But why such a huge prize, and what is this event all about?

Most people are aware that Mike Lindell has ruffled a few feathers. After all, actively questioning the 2020 election results is a serious point of contention. Now with a billion-dollar lawsuit with Dominion and millions lost from big name companies pulling his pillows, Mike Lindell has prepared for battle. Between the release of hot-button documentaries that expose the problems with the results and gathering information, Mike Lindell is ready to begin his showdown.

For opposing the results, the Democratic Party and other dissenters have mocked this effort. Most of all, they’re saying that this data does not exist. However, Mike Lindell is willing to put his money where his mouth is with this upcoming Cyber Symposium!

Rand Paul is FED UP With the Left’s Hysterics – TORCHES Them in Rant

Rand Paul Slaps Back After YouTube Suspension

According to Senator Paul’s office, the video was removed by YouTube, with his account suspended from posting any new videos for seven days.

“Censorship by YouTube is very dangerous as it stifles debate and promotes groupthink where the ‘truth’ is defined by people with a political agenda,” Senator Paul stated in a video message which responded to YouTube’s alleged actions.

The video, titled “It Is Time For Unfiltered News,” was also removed by YouTube. “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines,” stated the Google-owned Big Tech giant.

During a press call earlier on Tuesday, Senator Paul condemned the apparent link between Big Tech corporations, such as YouTube, and the country’s legislature.

Trump rips McConnell as ‘overrated’ ahead of infrastructure bill’s passage

“Nobody will ever understand why Mitch McConnell allowed this non-infrastructure bill to be passed. He has given up all of his leverage for the big whopper of a bill that will follow,” Trump wrote in a statement.

“I have quietly said for years that Mitch McConnell is the most overrated man in politics—now I don’t have to be quiet anymore.”

“He is working so hard to give Biden a victory, now they’ll go for the big one, including the biggest tax increases in the history of our Country,” Trump added.

The Georgia Republican tweeted Monday night that the Food and Drug Administration “should not approve the covid vaccines.”

“There are too many reports of infection & spread of #COVID19 among vaccinated people,” Greene tweeted.

“These vaccines are failing & do not reduce the spread of the virus & neither do masks.

“Vaccine mandates & passports violate individual freedoms.”A Twitter spokesperson told CNN that Greene’s tweet “was labeled in line with our COVID-19 misleading information policy. The account will be in read-only mode for a week due to repeated violations of the Twitter Rules.”

Rep. Biggs introduces articles of impeachment against DHS chief Mayorkas over border crisis

“Certainly Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have a substantial amount of blame with this, they’re the ones who campaigned on this, but Mayorkas has not pushed back at all,” Biggs told Fox News in an interview. “So he is the guy who is responsible for the border security and national security and it is a disaster down there.”

“He has failed utterly in his duty,” he said.

The resolution introduces two articles of impeachment against Mayorkas. The first accuses him of having “engaged in a pattern of conduct that is incompatible with his duties as an Officer of the United States.”

The second article accuses Mayorkas of having “engaged in a pattern of conduct that has placed departmental personnel and American citizens at risk of exposure to and contracting COVID-19 by refusing to take necessary steps to prevent potentially contagious illegal aliens from entering the United States.”

Senate approves bipartisan $1T infrastructure plan in win for Biden

The vote was 69-30, with 19 Republicans – including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell – joining all Democrats to approve major investments to the nation’s roads, bridges, railways and more.

To mark the achievement, Vice President Kamala Harris came to the Capitol to preside over the Senate and announced the successful vote. 

“Big news, folks,” Biden tweeted immediately after the victory. “The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal has officially passed the Senate. I hope Congress will send it to my desk as soon as possible so we can continue our work of building back better.”

But the rare showing of bipartisanship was short-lived Tuesday, as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., quickly pivoted to advancing a massive $3.5 trillion budget bill. Minutes after the infrastructure bill success, Schumer immediately called a procedural vote to begin debate on the Democrats’ budget plan, which passed along party lines: 50-49.

This partisan budget proposal will be the vehicle for Democrats to pass liberal priorities such as universal pre-kindergarten, expanded Medicare access, two free years of community college, subsidized child care, legalizing undocumented immigrants and green climate initiatives.
