Carville’s Warning to Democrats James Carville is a well-known Democratic operative, and yet he’s also capable of causing trouble for Democrats. That’s what happened in an April 27 interview, when he declared , “Wokeness is a problem, and we all know it.” A problem, that is, for the Democratic Party. As Carville explained: You ever get the sense that people in faculty lounges in fancy colleges use a different language than ordinary people? They come up with a word like “Latinx” that no one else uses. Or they use a phrase like “communities of color.” I don’t know anyone who speaks like that.

Gene therapy is a relatively new area of medicine designed to replace faulty genes in the body that are responsible for a disorder, and has been responsible for new treatments for blindness and certain types of leukemia. But the treatments are complex and costly, ruling them out as an option for most of the world. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, said the collaboration would focus therefore on "access, scalability and affordability" to make sure the … [Read more...] about US, Gates Foundation Plan $200M for Sickle Cell, HIV Cures

Prior to the announcement, Canada required recipients of the vaccine to be at least 16 years old. The outlet further reported that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may follow suit within the week and lower the age for receipt. In the U.S., recipients of the Pfizer vaccine must currently be at least 16 years old. Dr. Supriya Sharma, Health Canada’s chief medical adviser, told reporters that lowering the age of access to the vaccine “will also support the return to a more normal life for our children, who have had such a hard time over the past year.” The move comes after Pfizer, an American company, published a study in March detailing the effects of its vaccine on younger recipients which showed no infections among the roughly 2,200 U.S. … [Read more...] about Canada Becomes First to Approve Pfizer Vaccine for Children 12+
