The couple had a virtual chat with the former vice president and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, where they voiced their support for the Democratic nominee.

The superstar singer has announced she will be voting for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the upcoming November election.

She expanded on her decision to do so in the new issue of V Magazine, a preview for which was released on Wednesday.

"The change we need most is to elect a president who recognizes that people of color deserve to feel safe and represented, that women deserve the right to choose what happens to their bodies, and that the LGBTQIA+ community deserves to be acknowledged and included," Swift told the magazine. "Everyone deserves a government that takes global health risks seriously and puts the lives of its people first. The only way we can begin to make things better is to choose leaders who are willing to face these issues and find ways to work through them."

She added that she believes that under Biden and Kamala Harris, "America has a chance to start the healing process it so desperately needs."

Feds Are Saying R. Kelly Paid Someone To Attack Him


Feds are up to no good again in the R. Kelly case. After recent news that R. Kelly was attacked while behind bars, the Feds are saying the prisoners was paid through a unknown source for the attack to happen.

Here is the story:

Doug Anton, an attorney for Kelly, told CNN that the singer's legal team had been advised by the US Attorney's Office that the singer was on his bed in his cell Tuesday at Chicago's Metropolitan Correctional Center when another inmate came in and started to punch him.

Guards at the federal facility stopped the assault almost immediately, according to Anton. Anton said that R. Kelly did not sustain any injuries and that X-rays did not reveal any fractures.

Bill Cosby Files New Appeal In Pennsylvania


In court docs filed on Tuesday, his attorney argues that his trial was not fair because it allowed five accusers to give “decades-old” testimony that prejudiced the jury against him. They also argue it was “unfair” to have included a deposition he gave in an old civil suit “regarding [Cosby’s] use of quaaludes and his sexual behavior” because the disgraced comic believed the testimony was essentially immune from prosecution.

Rikers Island Jail Soon To Close It's Doors


Rikers, which has 10,000 beds, is a 400-acre jail complex located on an island in the middle of the East River, between Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx. The New York City Council voted Thursday to close the massive Rikers Island jail complex, one of the largest jails in the country, and replace it with four smaller jails across four of the city's boroughs.

"Rikers island is a symbol of brutality and inhumanity and it is time for us to once and for all close Rikers Island." "As a city we must do everything we can to move away from the failed policies of mass incarceration."

Rikers has become infamous for lack of oversight, excessive force and neglect. The jail housed some inmates with short sentences, but mainly served as a holding center for thousands awaiting trial.

Also: Should Bill Cosby Have Went To Prison

Opponents of closing the jail have worried about housing the inmates in residential neighborhoods. The new jails would only contain a total of 3,300 beds — compared to a current population of roughly 7,200 inmates.

The American Civil Liberties Union also celebrated Thursday's vote, calling it the "start of the long-overdue process."

1.7 Million Syphilis and Chlamydia Cases Reported


For all those who a sexually active with multiple partners need to be more careful. In 2018, rates of sexually transmitted diseases in the United States increased for the fifth year in a row, and combined cases of syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia reached a record high.

The past year has also seen a 40 percent rise in congenital syphilis, the type passed from mothers to their babies. Congenital syphilis can cause neurological problems, deformity, and death, and in 2018, 94 babies died from the disease.

In recent years, more than half of local STD treatment and prevention programs have faced budget cuts. Together, all of these factors point to roughly the same sentiment: Americans have stopped taking STDs seriously.

Local health departments play a crucial role in preventing the spread of STDs. Preventing congenital syphilis requires testing pregnant women for syphilis the first time they see their doctor. But since the 2008 recession, the municipal-health-department workforce has shrunk by almost a quarter.

Certain STDs had been declining in the 1990s, and in 2000 syphilis was close to being eliminated. STDs simply weren’t seen as much of a threat. And to the extent that they were, it was easy to blame the victims.

Public-health advocates say policy makers are essentially asleep at the wheel as STDs creep up slowly and claim more lives. “There’s a lack of public, provider, and policy-maker knowledge about what’s happening in STDs, and many consider these to be infections of a bygone era.”

$5 Million Worth Of Guns Destroyed


Now this is how you stand up in a fight to ban guns or reform laws. Dick's Sporting Goods CEO Ed Stack said his company destroyed $5 million worth of assault rifles as part of its tough stance on guns.

"I said, 'You know what? If we really think these things should be off the street, then we need to destroy them,'" Stack told CBS News.

In his book, "It's How We Play the Game: Build a Business. Take a Stand. Make a Difference," which goes on sale Tuesday, Stack wrote that rather than returning the firearms banned by the company to manufacturers, the chain "sawed $5 million worth of rifles into scrap."

Fentanyl Overdoses Rise In Ohio


The surge in overdose deaths prompted Franklin County officials to urge locals to carry naloxone — an overdose reversal drug — on them at all times in the event someone around them overdoses on opioids.

At least 10 people died of drug overdoses in a just over a one-day span in Ohio. "At this time we know fentanyl can be mixed into cocaine and methamphetamine. These can be deadly combinations for those who are using."

While Ohio often sees some of the highest overdose deaths, the opioid epidemic continues to plague much of the U.S. In 2017, Ohio had the second-highest opioid overdose rate in the country, with a reported 4,293 deaths.

Donald Trump Rants Off On Colin Kaepernick


When asked if he thought Kaepernick should get an opportunity to play again in the NFL, Trump said “only if he’s good enough.”

“Colin has always been prepared to compete at the highest level and is in the best shape of his life," a person familiar with Kaepernick's quest to return to the NFL told USA TODAY Sports on Friday. The person was granted anonymity because of the sensitivity of Kaepernick's comeback efforts. 

Kaepernick's last NFL appearance was in Week 17 of the 2016 season when he played for the San Francisco 49ers. Shortly after that season, Kaepernick opted out of his contract as he sought a better deal, but he has since remained a free agent.

“Only if he’s good enough,” Trump said outside the White House. “If he was good enough, they’d hire him. Why wouldn’t he play if he was good enough? I think if he’s good enough, I know the owners – I know (Patriots owner Robert) Kraft, I know so many of the owners – if he’s good enough, they’d sign him. ... 

“So I’d like to see it. Frankly, I’d love to see Kaepernick come in, if he’s good enough. But I don’t want to see him come in because somebody thinks it’s a good PR move.”

In August 2016, Trump said Kaepernick "maybe ... should find a country that works better for him. In September 2017, Trump said NFL owners should "get that son of a bitch off the field" when any players protest during the national anthem. Trump said in October 2018 that the NFL “should’ve suspended” Kaepernick for his protests of social inequality during the anthem.

In six seasons with the 49ers, Kaepernick, 31, threw for 12,271 yards and 72 touchdowns with 31 interceptions, and also ran for 2,300 more yards and 13 rushing scores.

Donald Trump Rants Off On Hollywood


U.S. President Donald Trump made a bold claim regarding the film industry while speaking to press outside the White House.

In the midst of discussing alleged anti-conservative bias in social media, Trump abruptly shifted the topic to entertainment, accusing Hollywood of “racism” without providing context.

Trump is criticizing Hollywood’s terrible history of whitewashing and perpetuation of harmful stereotypes. Considering that Hollywood has recently shown great commitment to diversity and inclusion, the statement seems untimely, at best.

Possible First-Ever Marijuana Overdose


Recently, we did a article on marijuana causing health problems and now according to the New Orleans Advocate, Coroner Christy Montegut claims that he's recorded the first-ever case of a marijuana overdose.

A police report noted the woman allegedly visited the emergency room with a chest infection three weeks before she died, with Montegut adding that nothing in the toxicology report pointed to other causes of death. He stated, "It looked like it was all THC because her autopsy showed no physical disease or afflictions that were the cause of death. There was nothing else identified in the toxicology—no other drugs, no alcohol. There was nothing else."

Former senior policy adviser at the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, Keith Humphreys, questioned the report, saying there would be more recorded marijuana overdoses if humans were able to consume that level of THC.

Marijuana has been used for years by smokers from all over the globe, but now THC is used in various new ways than before. Not only that, the Government is also experimenting with marijuana in ways we have never seen.

Who is to say what the future of Marijuana holds for household that use cannabis as a supplement. While the fight to legalize marijuana is still on going, there is another fight behind closed doors to keep it from becoming legal.
