Mississippi governor signs 'heartbeat' abortion ban

Mississippi's Republican governor signed one of America's strictest abortion bills on Thursday banning women from obtaining an abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can often occur before a woman even realizes she is pregnant. Dubbed the 'heartbeat bill,' this is the second legislative attempt in less than a year aimed at restricting abortions in a state with a single abortion clinic. The Mississippi law joins a wave of similar Republican-backed measures recently introduced in Iow...

Mississippi governor to sign 'heartbeat' abortion ban

Mississippi's Republican governor was due to sign one of America's strictest abortion bills on Thursday banning women from obtaining an abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can often occur before a woman even realizes she is pregnant. Dubbed the 'heartbeat bill,' this is the second legislative attempt in under a year aimed at restricting abortions in a state with a single abortion clinic. In a tweet earlier this week, Governor Phil Bryant thanked the state's legislature for "prot...

Solar and wind firms call the 'Green New Deal’ too extreme

WASHINGTON/LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. solar and wind power companies may have the most to gain from the Green New Deal, an ambitious proposal backed by several Democratic presidential candidates to end U.S. fossil fuel consumption within a decade. Representatives of America’s clean energy companies are withholding their support for the climate-fighting plan, calling it unrealistic and too politically divisive for an industry keen to grow in both red and blue states. It also underscores a new...

America Vs. Adam Levine's Nipples: All The FCC Viewer Complaints About The Super Bowl Halftime Show

I’ve been FOIAing viewer complaints to the Federal Communications Commission about the Super Bowl every year since M.I.A. flipped off the world in 2012, and this edition was bountiful indeed, drawing the most complaints since that first year. The FCC received 94 complaints regarding last month’s CBS broadcast, and 58…

Donald Trump is using Stalinist tactics to discredit climate science

A panel to promote an alternative explanation for climate change would be disastrous. Yet that’s what White House officials want ‘The creation of the new panel of climate change deniers echoes the campaign by Joseph Stalin’s regime.’ Photograph: Czarek Sokołowski/AP Americans should not be fooled by the Stalinist tactics being used by the White House to try to discredit the findings of mainstream climate science. The Trump administration has already purged information about climate change fro...

Bioterror fears over Marburg virus, Ebola's deadlier 'cousin', as US begins $10m vaccine project

America has begun a $10m project making a vaccine to a deadly cousin of the Ebola virus considered a potential bioterrorism weapon. Finding a way to stop Marburg virus is “an urgent public health and biodefence need”, the US government said. The haemorrhagic fever virus has caused a string of deadly outbreaks in Africa since it was discovered in the 1960s. Several outbreaks have had high mortality rates, killing four-out-of-five infected. “In addition to the threat of naturally occurring infecti...

Climate Change Strikes? This Critical U.S. Air Force Base Is Now Flooded

America, the Moon, and National Memory

Three days after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas in 1963, the nation watched an elaborate state funeral unfold with great pomp, circumstance, and majesty in Washington, D.C. Americans, like most of the world, were in shock, and probably never gave a thought as to what it took to organize a major event like this on such short notice. Our British cousins, however, were incredulous.London had been planning Winston Churchill’s funeral since the 1950s (he would not die until two ...

The "What-If" YF-23 Stealth Fighter Debate: We Are All Missing a Bigger Point

"So it perhaps is natural that we'd ask whether the F-22 was the right choice. Maybe, just maybe, the F-23 could've succeeded where the F-22 failed. What if the Air Force had picked the other stealth fighter design? What if America were stronger? What if we were safer? What if the whole world were a better place?"

While the Bear Cam bears hibernate, the Trump admin weighs a big plan to mine their world

When the peak of summer arrives in Alaska and the radiant midnight sun hangs in the northern sky, tens of millions of salmon make their move. They race up rivers, leap over waterfalls, and clog narrow streams with their hefty, five-pound bodies. It is then that Alaska's Bristol Bay — home to the largest run of sockeye salmon on the planet — comes to life. Wolverines, foxes, lynx, and bald eagles descend upon this untrammeled realm. And the most dominant creature of the land, the brown bear,...

America first: Trump boosts domestic spending on HIV but slashes help for those overseas

The US government has pledged nearly $300m to help end HIV transmission at home but has also announced a huge cut to foreign aid programmes fighting the disease around the world.  In his new budget, unveiled on Monday, Donald Trump made good on promises to provide new money to fight HIV in the United States but slashed funding to the State Department and USAID, which describes itself as the world's "premier international development agency", by 23 per cent.  In his State of the Union address...

Something fishy: study alleges fraud in US seafood labeling

One in five fish sold in America may be mislabeled, according to a report Thursday by an NGO that tested samples from several hundred markets and restaurants and alleged fraud runs through the entire fisheries supply chain. The NGO Oceana said it analyzed the DNA of 449 fish purchased from March to August 2018 in half of the US states and found that 94 were incorrectly labeled. Oceana said it looked at species which for the past year have not been covered by a limited tracing program implement...
