Two Democrats want to decriminalize drug possession and expunge all drug-related criminal records. The bill comes as Senate Democrats prepare to unveil a sweeping cannabis bill. Matt Sutton, a spokesman for the Drug Policy Alliance, an organization that helped draft the Drug Policy Reform Act, told Insider the group spoke with lawmakers about the issue starting last year. Some state laws also prevent people from voting, and federal laws against drugs prevent immigrants from becoming US citizens. The agency would have to publish a report about how to prevent the prosecution of drug possession and distribution within 180 days of the bill's enactment.

A growing number of cyberattacks have occurred on US businesses, local governments, and public systems since the start of 2021. According to the report, the Chicago-based insurance company paid hackers $40 million to regain control of its IT systems. The company temporarily suspended operations at around 10 of its global plants due to the attack, according to a report from Bloomberg. A ransomware group named Grief took responsibility for the attack, according to the report. In total, the hackers claimed to have stolen 780 GB of data, according to Vice.

A federal court in Texas on Saturday dismissed a lawsuit by 117 hospital employees who challenged their employer's vaccination requirement. In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas' written decision, Judge Lynn N. Hughes said lead plaintiff Jennifer Bridges, a nurse, and 116 other Houston Methodist Hospital employees who challenged the requirement, had no case. On Tuesday, hospital officials said they had suspended 178 employees who refused to be inoculated. On the vaccination requirement violating due process, she wrote, "Texas does not recognize this exception to at-will employment." Hughes concluded by saying "plaintiffs will take nothing" from the hospital.

With Covid-19, he wasn't so sure the majority of his mostly Latino patients would be leaving that quickly. Guevara, who came to the U.S. at age 6, said her parents struggled to get access to health care, which motivated her to study health care disparities, including the lack of Latino providers. Yet the number of Latino nurses is disproportionate to its demographic's size. Adrianna Nava is the president of the National Association of Hispanic Nurses. Latino nurses have played an important role during the pandemic, Villarruel said, working in their communities and encouraging people to get tested and vaccinated.

Particularly coming out of World War II, the Soviet Union and the United States were the global leaders in vaccine science. So while the technology was developed in the United States, there just was no way to test this in the United States. And they visited with American scientists and asked for a sample of this new polio vaccine to bring back to the Soviet Union. And the live polio vaccine sample was carried to the Soviet Union by one account in the pocket of Mikhail Chumakov. And they decide that they will provide the live polio vaccine to their own young children on sugar cubes.

But when Sawyer tried to call her last month with the good news that she would be allowed into the United States, she couldn’t reach her – Jasibi had been kidnapped again. Biden has filled many key immigration advisory positions with high-profile migrant advocates, including some opponents of the Title 42 border restrictions. Since Biden took office, U.S. border authorities have recorded more than 300,000 expulsions under Title 42. U.S. officials have said the Title 42 border restrictions are partly needed to protect government workers. In recent weeks the United States began admitting asylum seekers whom migrant advocates had identified as being especially vulnerable in Mexico.

Multiple partisan groups are pouring millions of dollars into West Virginia in a bid to pressure conservative Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin over key pieces of his own party's agenda. Two of the groups are virtually unknown and have quietly been trying to make an impact in West Virginia in recent weeks. Its ad campaign urges support for the For the People Act, the Democratic-backed election bill that advocates say would curtail the influence of big money donors. CNBC reviewed a copy of a new ad the group will run this weekend in West Virginia. A relatively new group, the West Virginia Freedom Alliance Action Fund, also wants Manchin to support the For the People Act.

REUTERS/Issei KatoEmergency medicine experts warn first responders at the Tokyo Olympics could easily confuse heatstroke and coronavirus patients because the illnesses bear similar symptoms. Tokyo's emergency health system has already had a taste of the combination of heatstroke and COVID-19. In a study of heatstroke management during the pandemic, Yokobori found that around four people diagnosed with severe heatstroke among 1,000 cases later tested positive for COVID-19. That puts not only spectators but emergency responders at risk, Yokoburi said, calling for organisers to bar spectators from the Games. "When we take care of heatstroke patients, we also have to protect ourselves with heavy protective gear, because we cannot separate COVID-19 with heatstroke," Yokoburi said.

The Merck logo is seen at a gate to the Merck & Co campus in Rahway, New Jersey, U.S., July 12, 2018. REUTERS/Brendan McDermidMerck & Co Inc (MRK.N) said on Wednesday the U.S. government has agreed to pay about $1.2 billion for 1.7 million courses of its experimental COVID-19 treatment, if it is proven to work in an ongoing large trial and authorized by U.S. regulators. The oral antiviral treatment, molnupiravir, aims to stop COVID-19 from progressing and can be given early in the course of the disease, similar to Tamiflu to treat influenza. The treatment course being tested in the trial is an oral dose given every 12 hours for five days. The drugmaker announced a change of plans and said in April it would no longer pursue use of molnupiravir in hospitalized patients.

WASHINGTON — The White House announced Tuesday that it will establish a task force to address supply chain challenges in key sectors where “a mismatch between supply and demand has been evident.”The task force will focus on “homebuilding and construction, semiconductors, transportation, and agriculture and food” and will be led by the secretaries of commerce, agriculture and transportation, the White House said. As the U.S. has reopened its economy, changes in demand have caused the disruptions, the White House said. “While these short-term supply chain disruptions are temporary, the president has directed his administration to closely monitor these developments and take actions to minimize the impacts on workers, consumers, and businesses in order to bolster a strong economic recovery,” it said. The actions come as the White House released the findings of a 100-day review of critical U.S. supply chain issues in a 250-page report Tuesday. The administration will also establish a new trade “strike force” that would propose unilateral and multilateral enforcement actions against unfair foreign trade practices.

WASHINGTON—The Biden administration Monday threatened to sue Texas over an order from its governor to pull state licenses from shelters that house unaccompanied immigrant children. Greg Abbott on May 31 gave state officials 90 days to end state licenses for any child-welfare shelters where the federal government has been housing the immigrant children after they cross the border. There are 52 such shelters in Texas—about a quarter the total around the country—and they collectively house approximately 5,000 children, according to a Department of Health and Human Services spokeswoman. Under immigration law, the federal government is responsible for caring for unaccompanied immigrant children—defined as migrants under 18 who crossed the border without a parent—in state-licensed shelters until it can find a suitable adult guardian to care for them. In a letter to Mr. Abbott and other Texas officials sent Monday evening, HHS Deputy General Counsel Paul Rodriguez wrote that moving ahead with stripping the licenses from federal immigration facilities would interfere with the federal government’s exclusive control over immigration matters.

The Congressional Review Act allows lawmakers to eliminate recently finalized regulations quickly, requiring only simple majorities in both the House and the Senate. During the Biden administration, Senate Democrats passed resolutions to eliminate only three Trump rules during the same period — and the deadline for Senate action closed the last week of May. "Democrats in Congress were definitely reluctant to make aggressive use of the Congressional Review Act," he said. Democrats may have been reluctant to target the related Trump rule before the decision, said Buchert of Lambda Legal. Democrats also faced political obstacles in using the Congressional Review Act.

WASHINGTON — The Biden administration is set to announce a series of steps designed to strengthen critical U.S. supply chains on Tuesday, building up domestic manufacturing capabilities for key products and addressing existing vulnerabilities. In February, President Joe Biden ordered a 100-day interagency review of domestic supply chains. The Department of Interior will lead a task force to identify sites where critical minerals could be produced and processed in the United States." Along with these efforts to bolster domestic supply chains, the Biden administration will also announce new steps to combat "unfair foreign trade practices," which it says have contributed to the erosion of supply chains around the world. "We're looking at very targeted products where we think there are effective tools we could deploy to strengthen our own supply chains and reduce vulnerabilities."

The US economy has been hit with crippling supply shortages, and Biden has a plan. The efforts aim to address immediate supply-chain problems and bolster domestic production. The so-called strike force led by the US Trade Representative will propose enforcement actions against unfair trade practices committed by other countries. Boosting production at homeMuch of the plan's long-term goals hinge on boosting domestic production, particularly for items in short supply today. The Department of Energy's Loan Programs Office will immediately leverage roughly $17 billion in loan authority to support the domestic production of vehicle batteries.

The drug was developed for patients with mild cognitive impairment, not severe dementia, and intended to slow progression of Alzheimer's disease -- not just ease symptoms. The pharmaceutical company Biogen and its Japanese partner Eisai developed aducanumab, administered through intravenous infusion to treat early Alzheimer's disease. "This drug targets the earliest symptomatic phase of the disease, called mild cognitive impairment due to Alzheimer's. Since then, Alzheimer's disease researchers, doctors and patients have been waiting for the FDA's decision. We have never had a medication that would slow down Alzheimer's disease progression," he said.

Biden turns to Obama to help boost health care enrollment

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden turned to his old boss, former President Barack Obama, on Saturday to help him encourage Americans to sign up for “Obamacare” health care coverage during an expanded special enrollment period in the pandemic. Biden used his weekly address for a brief Zoom chat with Obama to draw attention to the six-month expanded enrollment period that closes Aug. 15. The White House says 1.2 million people have now signed up for health insurance through the government marketplace during the special enrollment period that began in February. That number includes people who would have qualified for a sign-up opportunity even without Biden’s special enrollment period. Biden, in the conversation with Obama, spoke about the 2015 death of his son Beau Biden from cancer.

For years, the US government gave grants to a nonprofit called EcoHealth Alliance, which in turn funded gain-of-function research — including studies at the Wuhan institute. Both NIAID director Anthony Fauci and NIH Director Francis Collins have said that US agencies never funded gain-of-function research at the WIV. "But again, we have not funded gain-of-function research on this virus in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The US has funded gain-of-function research beforeAnthony Fauci listens as President Joe Biden speaks at the National Institutes of Health. "If you ban gain-of-function research, you ban all of virology," the official said, adding, "Ever since the moratorium, everyone's gone wink-wink and just done gain-of-function research anyway."

Professor Beth Jameson believes COVID-19 has exposed the flaw in havingone school nurse for every 750 kids. When many people think of a school nurse, they imagine a person who hands out Band-Aids for boo-boos. As a former school nurse and current nurse scientist and professor of nursing, I know that this one-size-fits-all model does not consider the full role and responsibilities of the school nurse. I now research how school health policies and practices effect the work environment of school nurses, and the challenges and barriers they face. I believe school nurses need more manageable workloads in order to provide the safe care needed for better student health and academic outcomes.

Fauci responded: "This pandemic has been extremely challenging for many countries around the globe including China and the USA.

Fauci then emphasized that the email was sent to him, and he noted the origins of the coronavirus are still uncertain. I still do think it is, at the same time as I'm keeping an open mind that it might be a lab leak." In another email sent to Fauci on April 16, NIH director Francis Collins wrote "conspiracy theory gains momentum," a reference to the lab-leak hypothesis. But much of the email is redacted, and Fauci said he did not remember its substance. Berman asked Fauci.

West Virginia is moving to expand its Covid-19 vaccine incentive program, Gov. West Virginians who have already been fully vaccinated will need to register to be entered to win the prizes. That incentive program started with over 20,000 registrations, but has since declined. The new incentive program featuring a plethora of prizes comes amid a push to get more West Virginians vaccinated. Justice's “Call to Arms” initiative sets goals of vaccinating 65% of all eligible West Virginians, 75% of West Virginians age 50 and older, and 85% of West Virginians age 65 and older with at least one dose by West Virginia’s 158th birthday on June 20, 2021.

While Bryant’s killing further heightened tensions in Ohio’s capital city over the fatal police shootings of Black people, her death also cast a light on the state’s foster care system. Among the parts of her foster care experience under scrutiny include Bryant being placed in five different foster homes within two years. “I mean so many questions that have to be answered.”Days after Bryant’s shooting, Franklin County Children Services said it had an obligation to make changes.

The Washington Post obtained Dr. Anthony Fauci's emails from March and April 2020. In one, a US health official told him that "doggie cones" could be used as PPE. A US health official suggested to Dr. Anthony Fauci early in the pandemic that medical workers could use "doggie cones" instead of personal protective equipment, according to emails obtained by The Washington Post. At the time of the emails, the US was struggling to provide doctors, nurses, and other frontline workers with enough PPE. A survey conducted by National Nurses United in February 2021 found that 81% of nurses said they had reused single-use PPE.
