Read previewPresident Joe Biden's ditched election bid has gone viral in China, where online consensus is veering toward former President Donald Trump's campaign rhetoric. AdvertisementVice President Kamala Harris met briefly with Chinese leader Xi Jinping in 2022 at her request during the APEC forum that year. As for Trump, the former president is often the subject of memes in China, mocking him as a secret agent for Beijing. Montages of Harris laughing on camera have also surfaced in China, though most are not derogatory. Most July polls put either Democratic leader behind Trump, though typically by a slim disadvantage of one to five percentage points.

Read previewThe Trump-Vance campaign is seemingly operating under the assumption that President Joe Biden will quit the race soon and let his Vice President Kamala Harris run for president. "To do so would be unfair to Gavin Newsom, JB Pritzker, Gretchen Whitmer, or whoever Kamala Harris picks as her running mate," Hughes added. Biden-Harris communications director Brian Fallon told Business Insider that the Trump-Vance campaign was trying to back down from having to debate Harris live. Representatives for the Trump-Vance campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment from BI sent outside regular business hours. In anticipation of a switch of candidates, Trump has already come up with nasty nicknames for Harris, including "Laffin' Kamala Harris" and "Cackling Copilot Kamala Harris."

During the event, he fumbled — with gaffes like calling Vice President Kamala Harris "Vice President Trump," and mistakenly addressing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy as "President Putin."

Trump has been lasering in on Vice President Kamala Harris in the weeks following Biden's stumbling performance at their debate on June 27. "I got him out the race, and that means we have Kamala," Trump said in the clip. "Respects to our potentially new Democrat Challenger, Laffin' Kamala Harris," Trump said, using a new nickname for the vice president. AdvertisementIn fact, "Laffin' Kamala Harris" isn't the only nickname he's coined for her. Trump has applied his penchant for name-calling to his Democratic rivals too, dubbing Hillary Clinton "Crooked Hillary" and Joe Biden "Sleepy Joe."

Then, he added, in a clearly insincere display of sympathy toward Mr. Biden, “it’s a shame the way they’re treating him. After talking about his proposal to remove taxes on tips for hospitality workers, he urged Mr. Rubio to vote for it. Mr. Rubio had so far this year appeared infrequently on the campaign trail with Mr. Trump. Instead, Mr. Rubio used his time to echo Mr. Trump’s mocking of Mr. Biden’s debate performance and his frequent attacks that Mr. Biden was not mentally fit to lead the country. Richard Siu, 57, said he liked the idea of Mr. Rubio as Mr. Trump’s running mate.

We were corresponding until she wrote that they’re inside the house. And she was hiding in her safe room. She — about the stuff she should have had in the safe room, like a toilet or a knife. I just – I love you.” And I wrote her, “I love you.” And that’s it.

How Covid Affects the Heart

Others may develop because Covid is also associated with the onset of risk factors for heart disease, most notably hypertension. How vaccines reduce the riskResearch has shown that people who are vaccinated are roughly 40 to 60 percent less likely to have a heart attack or stroke following a Covid infection than those who are unvaccinated. This may be because vaccinated people are less likely to develop severe Covid, which in turn lowers the risk of many of these heart-related issues. There is a small risk of developing myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) in the weeks after getting an mRNA Covid vaccine made by Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna. For males 30 and older, the risk of myocarditis was 28 times higher from Covid than from the vaccine.

For more than a year, civilian doctors in Ukraine have been swapping their white coats for military fatigues, joining thousands of combat medics — from nurses to anesthesiologists to pediatricians — who are putting their lives on the line to treat an endless stream of casualties. In this exclusive video, New York Times journalists spent a week inside a military field hospital in eastern Ukraine, filming a team of combat medics as they raced to save the lives of wounded soldiers. “We’re working on two front lines,” said Oleksiy Nazarishin, a Ukrainian surgeon and the chief medical officer. For the medics, it’s a grueling cycle of trauma, death and exhaustion. And when an injured enemy Russian soldier arrives at the field hospital, the medics must set aside their anger and uphold their medical oath to treat him like any other patient.

The war slogs on in the meantime: Russian soldiers kill or wound as many as thousands of Ukrainian troops a week, adding to the invasion’s toll. My colleagues Yousur Al-Hlou, Masha Froliak and Ben Laffin published a striking video today from the front lines, following Ukrainian combat medics. I urge you to watch the video, which changed how I look at the sacrifice Ukrainians have been forced to make. I spoke to Yousur and Masha about their experience following these medics for a week. German: What is the mood among Ukrainian medics, more than a year into the war?

Video For Valentyn, a Ukrainian soldier in the Donetsk region, the war’s death toll is more than a statistic. He is tasked with moving wounded troops — and dead bodies — away from the front lines, often under Russian fire. On the horizon, a military vehicle moves along a dusty road and screeches to a halt when it reaches the trees. A soldier named Valentyn parks it there for natural camouflage from Russian drones scouting for Ukrainian military positions. “This is a big tragedy for us.”“One more body is left behind with the Russian soldiers,” he added.

In August, we spent a day driving around with Mr. Cook and his Tesla to assess the progress of this experimental technology. Tesla is driving But watch as the Tesla struggles to make sense of its environment, veering from the road into a motel parking lot. The experiences of beta testers like Mr. Cook are a window into the enormously ambitious and expensive bet that Tesla is making on self-driving technology. Guided by Tesla’s self-driving technology, the car drove along the river and over a bridge before reaching an intersection lined with trees. These companies are now preparing self-driving car services that will operate without backup drivers in places like San Francisco and Austin, Texas.
