3 VACCINATED TEXAS DEMOCRATS TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID AFTER FLEEING THE STATE


3 Texas House Democrats Test Positive for COVID-19 After Fleeing to DC

Three of the Texas Democrats who flew to Washington this week to stymie efforts to pass election reform legislation have tested positive for COVID-19.

One member tested positive on Friday night and immediately informed colleagues, the Texas House Democrat Caucus said in a statement to news outlets. Caucus members and staff took rapid tests, which all came back negative, but two more members tested positive on Saturday morning.

In a statement on late Saturday, Harris spokeswoman Symone Sanders said it “was determined the Vice President and her staff present at the meeting were not at risk of exposure because they were not in close contact with those who tested positive and therefore do not need to be tested or quarantined.”

Harris met with some Texas state legislators on July 13 after they fled the state.

NEW YORK CLAIMS WOMAN MADE FALSE CLAIMS AGAINST OFFICERS


Bellone says allegation cops assaulted woman after Dix Hills shooting was ‘false’

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone on Friday said the preliminary results of an internal affairs investigation into an allegation that police assaulted a woman who was attempting to assist a shooting victim at a Dix Hills graduation party was found to be “false” based on fire department dashboard camera video.

“The fact is that the evidence gathered in this investigation reveals that the allegation that officers physically assaulted this individual for no reason is false,” said Bellone, speaking at a news conference at Suffolk government headquarters in Hauppauge. “The evidence, in fact, indicated these officers acted in the best interests of this victim.”

Cindy M. O’Pharrow, president of Cops N’ Kids Long Island — a police-youth mentoring program — last week filed a notice of claim against the county and the police department, alleging she injured her arm when she was forcibly removed by police from the rear of an ambulance on June 27.

O’Pharrow had also alleged police swore at her, refused to provide their names and shined their flashlights into her cell phone camera as she attempted to take photo and video of officers at the scene. Those allegations were not addressed Friday and remain under investigation.

DAWG SAYS: TYPICALLY, THEY RELEASE THE VIDEO RIGHT AWAY WHEN THEY ARE RIGHT BUT HAVE NOT YET.

ANOTHER PET PEEVE IN CONGRESS


Fish Species Getting New Name to Combat Racism Concerns — and Make It More Appetizing

The dish hasn’t caught on with U.S. consumers, despite its popularity in much of the world

Minnesota state Sen. Foung Hawj was never a fan of the “Asian carp” label commonly applied to four imported fish species that are wreaking havoc in the U.S. heartland, infesting numerous rivers and bearing down on the Great Lakes.

But the last straw came when an Asian business delegation arriving at the Minneapolis airport encountered a sign reading “Kill Asian Carp.” It was a well-intentioned plea to prevent the spread of the invasive fish. But the message was off-putting to the visitors.

Hawj and fellow Sen. John Hoffman in 2014 won approval of a measure requiring that Minnesota agencies refer to the fish as “invasive carp,” despite backlash from the late radio commentator Rush Limbaugh, who ridiculed it as political correctness.

DAWG SAYS: APPARENTLY, WE HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO WORRY ABOUT THAN A NAME OF A FISH.

BILL GATES FINANCES RESEARCH TO INJECT MEDICAL INFORMATION UNDER THE SKIN


Storing medical information below the skin’s surface

 

Every year, a lack of vaccination leads to about 1.5 million preventable deaths, primarily in developing nations. One factor that makes vaccination campaigns in those nations more difficult is that there is little infrastructure for storing medical records, so there’s often no easy way to determine who needs a particular vaccine.

MIT researchers have now developed a novel way to record a patient’s vaccination history: storing the data in a pattern of dye, invisible to the naked eye, that is delivered under the skin at the same time as the vaccine.

“In areas where paper vaccination cards are often lost or do not exist at all, and electronic databases are unheard of, this technology could enable the rapid and anonymous detection of patient vaccination history to ensure that every child is vaccinated,” says Kevin McHugh, a former MIT postdoc who is now an assistant professor of bioengineering at Rice University.

The researchers showed that their new dye, which consists of nanocrystals called quantum dots, can remain for at least five years under the skin, where it emits near-infrared light that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone.
The research was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Koch Institute Support (core) Grant from the National Cancer Institute.
