The medical license of an Oregon doctor who refused to wear a face mask despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has been revoked weeks after a video surfaced of him dismissing Covid-19 as a "common cold." Less than a month later, on Dec. 3, the Oregon Medical Board issued an emergency suspension after finding that LaTulippe "engaged in unprofessional conduct or dishonorable conduct," online records show. The medical board also found that LaTulippe and his staff refused to wear masks in the clinic and urged patients to remove their own masks. Medical board investigators who visited LaTulippe said there were no screening procedures upon entering the premises and no hand sanitizer was available in the waiting area. The suspension prevents LaTulippe, who was licensed in 2000, from practicing medicine anywhere in Oregon.

Viewed tens of thousands of times, a viral clip of fashion reality show Project Runway shows an outfit with a face mask designed by a contestant named Kovid Kapoor. While the 2019 scene is authentic, some users allege the video is evidence of “predictive programming”, implying that there was prior knowledge of the COVID-19 pandemic. For years, face masks have been commonly used in some Asian countries in response to airborne illnesses outbreaks and the increase of air pollution. The practice has even resulted in an Asian fashion trend known as “smog couture”, which features face masks as a fashionable accessory ( here , here ).

“We don’t need to go buy real estate, but focus on where kids actually are today, which is platforms like Roblox,” Mr. Williams said. With Roblox, “Ryan’s World” will earn revenue when players purchase “gems” that they can exchange for virtual gadgets and other in-game items. One challenge for “Ryan’s World” will be staying relevant as its young star grows older, said Mr. Gahan, the Mekanism executive.

I had expected the survivors to want to shut down Pornhub and send its executives to prison. Lydia, now 20, was trafficked as a child and had many rape videos posted on the site. “My solution would be to leave porn to professional production companies,” because they require proof of age and consent. She, too, thinks all platforms — from YouTube to Pornhub — should require proof of consent to upload videos of private individuals. If Pornhub curated videos more rigorously, the most offensive material might just move to the dark web or to websites in less regulated countries.

"We take aggressive steps to limit the spread of misinformation about COVID-19 and connect people with reliable information," it said, adding that it removed COVID-19 misinformation that "could lead to imminent physical harm." Facebook said Thursday it would crack down on COVID-19 vaccine misinformation on both Facebook and Instagram, removing posts that make false claims. The CCDH published a report in July on the audience growth of 409 prominent social media anti-vaxx accounts. Ahmed is also skeptical of Facebook's policy to take down COVID-19 vaccine misinformation. If COVID-19 vaccine misinformation picks up steam on Instagram, it could mean more scrutiny for FacebookFacebook's new policy on COVID-19 vaccine misinformation will apply to both Facebook and Instagram, but it remains to be seen how evenly it will actually play out on the platforms.

U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) takes questions during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, December 1, 2020. "This latest jobs report shows the need for strong, urgent emergency relief is more important than ever," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said in a statement. "Senate Republicans are increasingly understanding this urgency, and Leader McConnell should hear their pleas as well as those of the millions of struggling American families." The Senate leader wants to pass a more narrow $500 billion plan. It is unclear how much the jobs report will affect the contents of a relief bill — or how quickly Congress can pass it.

House passes bill to decriminalize marijuana, set up steps to wipe out convictions

The House passed a bill Friday to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level and set up a process to expunge past convictions. It marks the first time the House has voted to remove cannabis from the Federal Controlled Substances Act. The effort to decriminalize marijuana nationwide comes as more states legalize it for recreational or medical use. The legislation would require federal courts to expunge marijuana arrests and convictions and resentence Americans after a judicial review process, according to Blumenauer's office. As marijuana would no longer be considered a federal controlled substance, possession of it would not be a cause for deportation.

Beyond D'Amelio, Step has a brand ambassador program called Step Squad, which will work with middle and high school students to grow brand awareness. And in the app, users can send referral codes to friends and earn cash for each referral. Another reason is that processing fees (known as interchange) on a credit card, secured or otherwise, is typically higher than a debit card, MacDonald said.
