Why The World Needs To Go On Lockdown


It's 2021 and a plague has been killing off thousand in every country. There has been no effective way to combat the disease.


As countries around the world tighten lockdowns, impose curfews, ban large get-togethers and even halt alcohol sales to tackle a surge in coronavirus cases, officials in India and the U.S. announced some progress toward expanded immunization campaigns as infections rates continued to climb on multiple continents.


In the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Saturday said the country had administered more than 4.2 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines nationwide and had distributed more than 13 million doses.

The Covid-19 Pandemic Has Led China To Be The Biggest Foreign Investors

 


China overtook the U.S. as the largest recipient of foreign direct investment in 2020, a year in which overall global flows cratered by 42% as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, a United Nations trade agency said.


Flows fell to an estimated $859 billion from $1.5 trillion in 2019, according to the UNCTAD Investment Trends Monitor. It was the lowest level since the 1990s and 30% below the investment trough that followed the 2008-09 global financial crisis.


While the world as a whole struggled, China held on, said UNCTAD, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development. It became the world’s largest FDI recipient with flows rising by 4% to $163 billion.


A return to positive GDP growth and a targeted investment facilitation program helped stabilize investment in China after the first coronavirus lockdowns there, the agency said.

How Was They Able To Invade Capital Hill?

 


Will someone please explain to me how protestors were able to gain entry into Capital Hill? This is like saying any country could come here and take over all power. This shows weakness to America.


Rioters with Donald Trump and soviet flags stormed the U.S. Capitol Building while Congress met to certify electoral. Among that, Donald Trump our President was inciting the invasion of the US Capitol with his own Vice President inside.


President-elect Joe Biden also expressed his belief that had the crowds of men dressed in face paint and protective riot gear storming the Capitol been BLM supporters, the response by law enforcement would have looked differently.

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."
