Majority report being denied careAlthough many insurance companies and some politicians describe gender-affirming surgery as cosmetic, major medical organizations say it is medically necessary. For example, TRICARE, the military’s self-funded health insurance for service members, “generally doesn’t cover surgery for gender dysphoria,” according to its website. “I just remember thinking this is crazy — that Starbucks has better trans health care than military family members,” they said. Lindsey Dawson, an associate director at KFF (formerly the Kaiser Family Foundation), a nonprofit organization focused on health policy, described state laws as a “patchwork.”Twenty-four states and Washington, D.C., prohibit transgender exclusions in health insurance coverage, according to the Movement Advancement Project, a nonprofit think tank. She cited Washington, which passed legislation in May that requires all insurers in the state to cover gender-affirming care, including operations.

UNITED NATIONS — Chinese leader Xi Jinping said on Tuesday that China would not build new coal-fired power projects abroad, using his address at the United Nations General Assembly to add to pledges to deal with climate change. And I’m absolutely delighted to hear that President Xi has made this important decision," Kerry said in a statement. "It is clear the writing is on the wall for coal power. I welcome President Xi’s commitment to stop building new coal projects abroad — a key topic of my discussions during my visit to China," he said on Twitter. Xi spoke after U.S. President Joe Biden gave his first United Nations address.

Demonstrators play drums outside the Ministry Labour building, during a protest in demand of an increase in the minimum wage, welfare plans and jobs, during the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), in Buenos Aires, Argentina October 14, 2020. REUTERS/Agustin MarcarianBUENOS AIRES, Sept 21 (Reuters) - Argentina on Tuesday raised the country's minimum wage to 31,104 Argentine pesos ($316.51) a month starting in September, as persistent inflation eats away at purchasing power. In October, the minimum monthly wage will rise to 31,938 Argentine pesos, and then to 32,616 Argentine pesos in February 2022, the government said. Overall in 2021, the minimum wage will have risen 55.3%, Economy Minister Martin Guzman said on Twitter. The increase in the minimum wage is in line with inflation.

From 2001 through April, about 66,000 Afghan military and police members were killed in Afghanistan, alongside 2,448 U.S. service members. The abrupt U.S. exit from Afghanistan likely forced the Afghan military to fight under unfamiliar conditions, ultimately leading to collapse — and the humanitarian catastrophe we are now witnessing. Our military allies in both countries simply do not know how to fight effectively on more conventional battlefields without U.S. support. If we are willing to maintain huge troop numbers to support our allies in Europe and East Asia, then why not even a small footprint in the Middle East?

PHOENIX — Latinos are perpetually absent in major newsrooms, Hollywood films and other media industries where their portrayals — or lack thereof — could deeply impact how their fellow Americans view them, according to a government report released Tuesday. U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, has made the inclusion of Latinos in media a principal issue, imploring Hollywood studio directors, journalism leaders and book publishers to include their perspectives. Castro says the lack of accurate representation, especially in Hollywood, means at the very best that Americans don’t get a full understanding of Latinos and their contributions. That could engender violence against Latinos, like the killing of 23 people in El Paso in 2019 by a gunman who was targeting Hispanics. “American media, including print journalism, has relied on stereotypes of Latinos.

Rocha is a native Spaniard, but he has family in Cuba and feels inextricably linked to what has taken place there.

The U.S. and European and Latin American countries have denounced the lack of human rights and democracy on the island. “It doesn’t have to be with [United Nations Secretary-General] António Guterres; it doesn’t have to be with [United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights] Michelle Bachelet.

But while the homeless are eager to grab up backpacks, some are less enthusiastic about getting a vaccine. With so few homeless people fully vaccinated, Newman fears the worst. As of the end of February, the New York City Department of Homeless Services documented 113 deaths of homeless people from Covid, 101 of whom died in shelters. To incentivize them, the group offers $25 McDonald’s gift cards, and volunteers share their own stories about getting the vaccine. The city is also working on getting more homeless vaccinated.

Mark Zuckerberg said he would avoid fact-checking political posts if Trump didn't impose heavy regulations, a new book says. Peter Thiel told an associate that Zuckerberg cut the deal during a meeting at the White House in 2019, the book claims. Zuckerberg denied that such a deal had been made, according to the book, saying the notion was "pretty ridiculous." During the meeting, Zuckerberg pledged to Kushner that he wouldn't fact-check political posts on Facebook as long as the Trump administration steered clear of regulating the platform, Thiel told a confidant, according to the excerpt. Last year, Facebook also confirmed to The Washington Post that though the fact-checking policy was officially announced in September 2019, Facebook formally put it in place in September 2018, prior to the conversation that Zuckerberg had with Thiel, Kushner, and Trump.

Legal experts see a lack of evidence — and other problems — with a Trump-era special prosecutor's latest case. But while the indictment marked the first overt sign of activity in months from Durham, several legal experts weren't impressed. In interviews, legal experts described Durham's case against Sussmann as unusually — even remarkably — thin. Prosecutors in Durham's office allege that Sussmann was, in fact, representing a technology-industry executive and the Clinton campaign. "Man, the Michael Sussmann indictment seems thin.

Amazon is lobbying the US government to legalize cannabis, the company announced Tuesday. The company ended pre-employment drug testing earlier this year and said it supports national legalization. Amazon's warehouse employees have a high turnover rate, and national legalization could help with hiring. Amazon first announced support for federal cannabis legalization back in June. Notably, Amazon said on Tuesday that part of the reason it's pushing for legalization is to make hiring a bit easier.

Trump pushed false vote-rigging claims for weeks after his campaign had internally discredited them. A November 13 memo on the claims was revealed as part of a lawsuit from a former Dominion employee. The campaign couldn't substantiate claims that the company was part of a global election-rigging conspiracy. Coomer's suit, filed in Colorado, names as defendants individuals affiliated with the Trump campaign, including Powell, conservative commentator Michelle Malkin, Colorado-based activist and online personality Joseph Otlman, the website Gateway pundit, and One America News. While Powell's claims and theories eventually became too much for Trump's own legal team, the Trump campaign didn't formally cut official ties with her until 10 days after Parkinson's staff's memo on November 23, 2020.

If energy prices (particularly natural gas) stay where they are today, expect this to rear its head again. Now, investors may chortle given the recent performance of clean energy stocks. (That's exactly why OPEC exists--not just to keep the oil price high enough to make a profit, but also to keep it low enough to keep the world addicted to it.) Betting on the clean energy transition can also imply not just the companies but also the commodities, like copper, aluminum, and nickel, which will be critical in producing it. Andurand thinks oil demand more broadly will peak "around 2027."

CNN this week published a two-page memo he wrote for Trump's legal team. A longer version, obtained by Insider, claims Mike Pence could have handed the election to Trump. "We knew this theory was out there, but it's alarming to see that it was written up and presented to Trump's legal team and presumably taken seriously by them," he said. Even if there were dual slates of electors — there were not — "it's a fringe view to say that the vice president gets to decide which is valid." He has never argued the vice president alone can determine the legitimacy of a state's electors.
