as one Twitter user put it, “one of the dumbest examples of performative activism in tech that I have ever seen” — side effects of this include allegedly wiping over 30,000 messages and files detailing war crimes committed in Ukraine by Russian army and government officials since the start of the invasion.
At the June 2021 AMA Special Meeting, delegates adopted policy to support “the development of an ICD-10 code or family of codes to recognize Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (‘PASC’ or ‘long COVID’) and other novel post-viral syndromes as a distinct diagnosis.” Read about the AMA’s support for more resources to help millions living with long COVID. The AMA’s What Doctors Wish Patients Knew series provides physicians with a platform to share what they want patients to understand about today’s health care headlines, especially throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. For this installment, AMA member Devang Sanghavi, MD, took the time to discuss what patients need to know about long-haul COVID. Dr. Sanghavi is an intensivist and medical director of the medical intensive care unit (ICU) at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. Since summer of 2020, he has seen about 100 patients with long COVID, many of whom take weeks to recover.
‘Long-COVID clinical features occurred and co-occurred frequently and showed some specificity to COVID-19, though they were also observed after influenza. Different long-COVID clinical profiles were observed based on demographics and illness severity.’
Handy, the HSE now offer the free 5 tests for a Irish primary school close contact online, no phone call required
This US-based anti-abortion and anti-gender-rights group is now operating in Ireland, receiving an annual income of nearly €1m per year. It “[runs] the anti-abortion pregnancy counselling service Ask Majella, campaigns against the use of contraceptives, and […] a host of other Catholic endeavours […] also been linked to a Russian oligarch closely associated with the Kremlin and Vladimir Putin.”
If true, this is going to be bananas:
The UK is, indeed, taking the “world-leading” stance – not duplicated by any other western nation – of requiring any business or organisation whose online presence could possibly be accessed in the UK to proactively monitor and scan for legal content. That means you and your business and your project, not just the five or six companies the people who cooked up this law think the Internet is. This hits everyone and everything.I’d have to agree with the poster that the likely result will simply be websites going offline for UK users.
“Find me a single electricity tariff in Ireland that provides electricity for as cheap as 5.3c/kWh for at least one hour during the daytime. *crickets*.”
Truly, truly horrific —
We are still flooded by messages from people wanting to learn the fate of loved ones we photographed and filmed. They write to us desperately and intimately, as though we are not strangers, as though we can help them. When a Russian airstrike hit a theater where hundreds of people had taken shelter late last week, I could pinpoint exactly where we should go to learn about survivors, to hear firsthand what it was like to be trapped for endless hours beneath piles of rubble. I know that building and the destroyed homes around it. I know people who are trapped underneath it. And on Sunday, Ukrainian authorities said Russia had bombed an art school with about 400 people in it in Mariupol. But we can no longer get there.
