The Times noted that since the series launched in July, its main protagonist “has combated wildfires caused by climate change, thwarted a high school shooting, and protested the deportation of refugees in Metropolis.”

She then reproduces Asante’s ad seeking from the public referrals for “top-notch healthcare professionals.”

If a worker is hired through the process the referrer is promised $750.

The image shows a young woman in a canoe on a lake, with the logo, “Help build our team and get a bonus!” and it’s signed “Asante.”

Therrien continued, “Asante is now using a photo of me to advertise replacement of my exact position. After almost 6 years of working for this company and being thrown away like I am nothing this is just another slap in the face.

Vaccine Mandates | Full Measure

Covid-19 vaccine mandates have set up the ultimate showdown.

If you don’t comply, you might not be able to earn a living, get an education or take part in society.

Smith recorded video of herself getting handcuffed, which her father, Andy Smith, shared on social media. The video shows the interactions between Smith and police officers were polite. 

“When asked if they’re arresting her for [not wearing] her mask, they’ll say, ‘No, we’re arresting her for her violation of failure to comply in accordance with their trespassing ordinance,'” Andy Smith told Bouchard.

Smith said that she’s faced three separate two-day suspensions over refusing to mask up and received $1,000 in trespassing fines for refusing to leave the campus, saying that she had a right to be on school grounds to continue her education.

The New York Times Spreads Misinformation About COVID-19

The paper of record had to print a lengthy correction to a big error in a Thursday news article. The story was about other countries’ approaches to vaccinating young people, and whether one shot would be better than two given the risks of heart inflammation in teenagers.

This wasn’t a junior reporter new to the job. The author was the paper’s lead coronavirus correspondent, Apoorva Mandavilli.3

This isn’t Mandavilli’s first questionable article. In early August, FiveThirtyEight‘s Nate Silver accused her of framing the Provincetown study of the delta variant’s spread in a “misleading and sensationalist way.”

Mandavilli also tweeted, as recently as May of 2021, that the lab leak theory of COVID-19’s origins is “racist” at its roots. She eventually deleted that tweet but doubled down on the sentiment.

In general, her pandemic reporting has manifested a paranoid slant. But the Thursday article wasn’t just slanted; it was wrong, wrong, wrong.

DES MOINES, IOWA – Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley cut straight to the chase when asked if he’d gladly accept the support of former President Trump as the longtime lawmaker from Iowa runs next year for an eighth six-year term in the Senate.

“Anybody who’s got the approval rating of 91% of the Republicans in Iowa, you surely wouldn’t be stupid enough to turn down that help,” Grassley told Fox News on Saturday at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, minutes before Trump’s first rally in the Hawkeye State since last November’s election got underway.

Grassley, in a speech to the crowd a couple of hours earlier, tied himself to the former president, showcasing that “President Trump and I were proud to deliver for the hard working people of Iowa and the United States, people just like you, policies that make a difference in the United States of America to continue America First.”

“While our ISF heroes focused on securing the elections, their INIS [Iraqi National Intelligence Services] colleagues were conducting a complex external operation to capture Sami Jasim, who was in charge of Daesh finance, and a deputy of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi,” Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi said in a statement on Monday, one day after the country held a parliamentary election. Daesh is another name for ISIS.

Jasim, an Iraqi national and one of ISIS’s core leaders, may offer valuable information on the terrorist group’s operations, said Hassan Hassan, an expert on the group. He is only the second senior ISIS leader to be taken alive, he added.

A reward of up to $5 million for his capture was offered by the U.S. State Department’s Rewards (RFJ) for Justice program, according to its website. The department said Jasim, who was also known as Hajji Hamid, is a legacy member of al-Qaeda in Iraq.

“This is the rightful homeland for the people of Israel here in Judea and Samaria,” Pompeo said Sunday, The Jerusalem Post reported.

“We recognized that this is not an occupied nation, this is not an apartheid country. It is a democracy where faiths can be practiced from all of the Abrahamic traditions.”

Pompeo spoke during a visit to the Psagot Winery, located on a hilltop outside of Jerusalem.

Less than a year earlier, Pompeo visited the West Bank and announced a historic change in U.S. policy that allowed for settler products produced there to be labeled “Made in Israel.”

Global arbitrators tackle naval incident that ratcheted Russia-Ukraine tensions

Ukrainian naval ships are seen anchored in a port in Kerch, Crimea, in December 2018. The boats, which had been seized by Russia the previous month, were eventually returned nearly a year later.
Ukrainian naval ships are seen anchored in a port in Kerch, Crimea, in December 2018. The boats, which had been seized by Russia the previous month, were eventually returned nearly a year later.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (CN) — Moscow got in the first word Monday as the Permanent Court of Arbitration kicked off a week of hearings into the capture of three Ukrainian naval ships in the Kerch Strait, a narrow pass that connects the Sea of Azov to the Black Sea.

As the Russian Federation fights the jurisdiction of a United Nations tribunal, which had previously ruled Moscow was in the wrong, Dmitry Lobach, Russia’s ambassador-at-large, argued Monday that the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea doesn’t cover military activities.

The dispute has made an appearance at more than the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea. There is also a case pending before the European Court of Human Rights, one of six complaints between Ukraine and Russia before the Strasbourg-based court. The incident has also been mentioned in proceedings before the UN’s top court, the International Court of Justice, which is housed in the same building as the PCA. 

Government’s COVID Lockdowns Spiked Global Rates Of Anxiety And Depression By More Than A Quarter

According to the report, authored by a worldwide team of academics led by Dr. Damian Santomauro at Australia’s University of Queensland, researchers attributed 53 million new cases of major depressive disorder and 76 million cases of anxiety disorders to the pandemic — and the government’s isolating lockdowns and mandates.

“The locations hit hardest by the pandemic in 2020, as measured with decreased human mobility and daily SARS-CoV-2 infection rate, had the greatest increases,” the authors wrote in the paper published by The Lancet.

Women and young people were shown to be most affected by the onslaught of draconian lockdowns triggered by the novel Wuhan coronavirus.
