The High-Risk Group Left Out of New York’s Vaccine Rollout
Health

When New York announced new vaccine eligibility guidelines two weeks ago covering millions of additional state residents, one particularly hard-hit group remained unmentioned: the nearly 50,000 people incarcerated in the state’s prisons and jails.Now, with state supplies dwindling and no clear plan for vaccinating incarcerated people, the virus that tore through the state’s correctional facilities in the spring is roaring back behind bars. At least 5,100 people living and working in New York’s prisons have tested positive and 12 have died in recent weeks, outpacing even the early days of the pandemic.But how and when to vaccinate incarcerated people as millions around the state wait has raised legal, logistical and ethical questions that the state has so far struggled to answer.

Mexicans Worry That Even Getting Covid Won’t Make Their Leader Take It Seriously
Health

MEXICO CITY — A day after the news that Mexico’s president had contracted Covid-19, frustration rippled through the line of Mexicans anxiously waiting Monday to refill tanks of oxygen for relatives who were suffering from the same illness and gasping for air at home. For nearly a year, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador had minimized the pandemic, claiming that religious amulets protected him, refusing to wear masks and even drinking from the same clay pot as supporters. It was only a matter of time until he got sick himself, some Mexicans said.With the president now infected, what most aggrieved many Mexicans was not only that he had flouted basic safety precautions, but that he also may go back to playing down the threat that the surging pandemic poses after his own illness.

Iran Blames Bitcoin For Massive Electric Grid Blackouts
Health

Iran’s capital of Tehran and several other Iranian cities have experienced major blackouts over the past few weeks, exacerbating an already serious phase of the coronavirus pandemic.Within days, the government decided to crack down on an unusual culprit for the power grid troubles: Bitcoin miners, as the Associated Press reports.The government shut down some 1,600 cryptocurrency centers across the country, including legally operating ones.These operations use warehouses full of industrial machinery to crunch numbers and solve algorithms, an energy intensive process more popularly known as cryptocurrency “mining.”Critics, however, argue that Bitcoin simply became the Iranian regime’s scapegoat — for not only the blackouts but for rising air pollution as well — and that far more evasive problems are lingering under the surface, according to the AP.

11 of the Best Compression Leggings That Won’t Flatten Your Butt
Health

When I'm trying on leggings, my brain pulls a Tina Belcher and immediately goes to "butts" because A) do they pass the squat test? and B) how does my butt look? While I prefer leggings with medium-to-high compression for my HIIT workouts because they feel very secure, I've found that many of them smoosh and flatten my butt. Ahem: Excuse me, I do not do deadlifts and squats multiple times a week to have my backside disrespected like that. Compression leggings also tout a variety of benefits; they purportedly can help increase blood flow to your muscles and reduce lactic acid buildup (aka what makes you sore after a workout). Here are 11 pairs of the best compression leggings that make your butt look good.There are times when I want to inject a little sexiness into my activewear look—like if my crush invites me to do a beach workout or if I'm promenading for a husband while walking my dog—and Koral always has what I need. Their new compression leggings are part of their first sustainable collection. The slippery-smooth fabric is quite compressive without being uncomfortable, and these leggings, of course, make my butt look really good.

UK officials: People who get the contagious virus variant may have a higher risk of death
Health

United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced last week that people infected with the coronavirus variant first reported in the country may face a higher risk of death than those who get the original virus."There is some evidence the new variant may be associated with a higher degree of mortality," he said at a press conference on Friday.Studies have shown that the variant, known as B.1.1.7, is more contagious than its viral predecessors. But evidence had not suggested the strain was deadlier until now.  "Whereas an average of 10 out of a 1,000 older people died of the old variant in the UK, this appears to have increased to 13 out of 1,000 people with the new variant," Patrick Vallance, the UK's chief scientific advisor said on Friday. He stressed, however, that the evidence remained "uncertain."

Biden Raises Daily Vaccination Target and Extends Travel Bans
Health

WASHINGTON — President Biden, under pressure to speed up the pace of coronavirus vaccination, said on Monday that he was now aiming for the United States to administer 1.5 million vaccine doses a day — a goal that is 50 percent higher than his initial target but one that the nation already appears on track to meet.The president made his comments just hours after he banned travel by noncitizens into the United States from South Africa because of concern about a coronavirus variant spreading in that country, and moved to extend similar bans imposed by his predecessor on travel from Brazil, Europe and Britain. Those bans were set to expire on Tuesday.Mr. Biden has vowed to get “100 million Covid-19 shots in the arms of the American people” by his 100th day in office. Because two doses are required, and some Americans have already been vaccinated, his promise would cover about 67 million Americans. To realize it, the United States would have to administer one million shots a day.

Dealing With Dry Eyes? Here's The Likely Culprit + 4 Expert-Backed Relief Tips
Health

Anyone who’s ever stared at a laptop all day and into the night can likely rattle off the symptoms of dry eyes—soreness, grittiness, redness, itchiness, blurriness, and for contact wearers, lenses that feel literally glued to the eyeball. While there are a number of culprits that can lead to dry eye, an often-overlooked issue tends to be one of the biggest triggers. The surprising cause of dry eyes. You probably already know that the base of our eyelashes plays host to countless bacteria. But contributing factors like, yes, way too much screen time, excessive dry air, hormones, and even aging can all create an environment ripe for bacterial overgrowth—especially if you’re routinely going to bed without washing off that eye makeup. “We end up with an overpopulation when we’re lax in our hygienic measures,” explains optometrist Mary Ann Ellement, O.D.

This Is the Best Meditation App I’ve Used—Because It’s Taught Me a New Way to Meditate
Health

I've always struggled to meditate. Carving out 10 minutes to simply sit and breathe always feels like time that might be better used for another purpose—even if that means I inevitably end up scrolling through my phone. When I do make the attempt, suddenly, I feel like I just can't sit still. It's for these reasons I know that I should develop a meditation practice, but it always seems like attempting the impossible. Still, I'm very familiar with all the proven benefits of meditation. I know that it's a psychological tool that can ease my anxiety and stress, boost my productivity, and help me to fall asleep. This is why, when I do happen upon a new-to-me meditation app, I am likely to try it out, on the off chance that I can finally get the habit to stick. And when I tried the MyLife app, for once I felt like I finally found something different.

Los estragos atroces de la pandemia del coronavirus son evidentes en todos los rincones del mundo. Por lo mismo, también debería ser evidente que se necesita hacer todo lo posible para averiguar el momento y el lugar en el que el virus dio su fatídico salto de animal a humano. Con esa intención, un equipo de la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) viajó hace unas semanas a Wuhan, China, donde se identificó por primera vez el coronavirus.Por desgracia, el Partido Comunista de China ha demostrado de manera constante que está mucho más preocupado por mantener un cierto halo de infalibilidad que por ayudar a encontrar el origen de la crisis. Al hacerlo, está obstruyendo los esfuerzos para prevenir otras pandemias y pone en peligro a toda la humanidad.
