Former President Donald Trump condemned President Joe Biden’s administration for pausing the delivery of the Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine Tuesday. “The Biden Administration did a terrible disservice to people throughout the world by allowing the FDA and CDC to call a ‘pause’ in the use of the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine,” Trump wrote in a statement sent to reporters. The decision to pause administration of the vaccine was announced by the Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday morning citing “extremely rare” cases of blood clots among recipients. Trump defended the “extraordinary” results of the vaccine but lamented the company’s vaccine would never recover its reputation after the pause was announced by federal regulators. The former president floated a theory that the decision was done for political reasons or due to “the FDA’s love for Pfizer.” “The FDA, especially with long-time bureaucrats within, has to be controlled,” he wrote. “They should … [Read more...] about Donald Trump: FDA Pause of Johnson & Johnson Coronavirus Vaccine a ‘Terrible Disservice’ to the World

RIBS protect some of the most important organs in the body, like our heart and lungs. They are flexible so that we can breathe, but that makes them fragile. They are so delicate that you can fracture a rib by sneezing. How many ribs do humans have? Humans have 24 ribs in total, 12 on each side. They are symmetrical so come in pairs. The ribs mostly attach to the breast bone in front, and the backbones at the back. All 12 pairs of ribs are collectively called our rib cage and there are three layers of muscle between the bones. Some people, about five in every hundred, have more ribs, and others, about three in every hundred, have less. Slightly more or less ribs doesn’t usually cause any problems. A cracked rib usually repairs itself, but ribs that have actually broken need attention. You can crack a rib by coughing a lot, but blunt trauma, like a road accident, is the most common cause of broken ribs. What is the myth of women having an extra rib? … [Read more...] about How many ribs do humans have?
THE Jurassic Coast saw its biggest rockfall in 60 years as 4,000 tonnes tumbled from a 430ft cliff. The rubble has completely blocked off a beach along a stretch of Britain's historic Jurassic Coast. A huge chunk from a 430ft sandstone cliff gave way causing boulders the size of cars to plummet near Seatown in Dorset. Rangers have been assessing the damage throughout the day and Dorset Council is warning people to stay away. The 'gigantic' landslip affecting almost 1,000ft of cliffside took place overnight, with whole trees seen floating out to sea. It is believed to have been caused by natural erosion, not helped by recent mixed weather. Jake Lanning, from West Bay Coastguard, said: "We have been aware of this since this morning and it is a very very substantial fall. "The county council are aware of it and I know their rangers have been out assessing the damage. "I believe it was caused by substantial cracks around the cliff, which have occurred as part of … [Read more...] about Jurassic Coast has its biggest rockfall in 60 years after huge 4,000 tonne chunk drops from 430ft cliff
