First defense against coronavirus: 20 seconds of proper hand-washing

Washing hands best way to counter aronavirusWhen people ask how to protect themselves against the alarming spread of coronavirus COVID-19, one of the first suggestions from doctors is a common-sense one: Wash your hands – but do it the right way.

"There are more bacteria on your hands than anywhere else," says Dr. Terry Platchek of the Stanford School of Medicine.

Your hands collect bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms from any nonsterile surface – or people – and transfer them to others, or to you.

Hands are “the body part we touch everything with,” says Dr. David Coil of UC Davis. “Most bacteria of interest are not growing on the hands, they're just being passed from place to place there.”



Police gun instructor's accidental death provides a final lesson, but questions linger

Gun instructor's death raises questionsManny Ortiz was more than just a cop.

By all accounts, he was great at his job. He served for 22 years with the Rochester Police Department and was as an instructor at the police academy, where he taught firearms and defensive tactics to a generation of cadets.

Ortiz was 52 when he accidentally shot himself while driving to work one evening in November. The accidental discharge of his weapon caused his sport utility vehicle to crash into a ravine. Despite heroic efforts by passers-by and responding deputies, Ortiz was declared dead at the scene.

Revered by his fellow law enforcement officers, he was also beloved within the local Hispanic community. Passionate about his Puerto Rican heritage, Ortiz was called on when relationships between that community and the police department were strained.

US neo nazis charged with harrassment

Leaders of a neo-Nazi group have been arrested and charged in a pair of federal investigations with conspiring to harass journalists, churches and a former cabinet official, among others, with phony bomb threats and other forms of intimidation.

In Seattle, prosecutors announced charges against a group of alleged Atomwaffen members for cyber-stalking and mailing threatening communications in a campaign against journalists with swastika-laden posters telling them “You have been visited by your local Nazis”.


Trump campaign sues New York Times for libel over 2019 op-ed

NY Times sued by Trump campaignPresident Trump's reelection campaign is suing The New York Times for libel, claiming that the newspaper knowingly published false information about the president in an op-ed last year.

The lawsuit, filed in New York State Supreme Court on Wednesday, accuses the Times of intentionally defaming Trump with an op-ed claiming that his 2016 campaign had an "overarching deal" with Russia.

"The statements were and are 100 percent false and defamatory," Jenna Ellis, a lawyer for the campaign, said in a statement.

"The complaint alleges The Times was aware of the falsity at the time it published them, but did so for the intentional purpose of hurting the campaign, while misleading its own readers in the process,” Ellis added.

TVNL Comment: Read the Mueller Report, Ms. Ellis. The truth hurts. Then sue anyone who tells the truth about your client.  It rarely works, but it can by really costly.

Trump tightens his grip on intelligence

Trump tightens grip on intel agencies

President Donald Trump is tightening his grip on the intelligence community as part of a post-acquittal purge of career officials and political appointees deemed insufficiently loyal, and the abrupt firing of his last intel chief is only the tip of the iceberg, current and former intelligence officials say.

Trump’s decision to replace acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire with a loyalist with no intelligence experience, Ric Grenell, shocked the national security world and has raised questions about who the president will nominate to serve in the post after Grenell’s “acting” status expires next month. In India, Trump hinted that his decision would come soon.

But it also revealed a deeper trend: namely, the steps Trump has taken to shield the public from intelligence that could be politically damaging for him, and keep the flow of information coming out of the agencies firmly under his control.

TVNL Comment: It gets scarier and scarier...

ABC News Suspends Correspondent David Wright Over Secret Video Footage

David Wright suspended bu ABC News

ABC News suspended one of its veteran correspondents late Tuesday for unguarded remarks he made in a video by operatives of Project Veritas, the conservative group that records “undercover” footage of mainstream journalists to bolster its accusations of media bias.

The network disciplined David Wright, who reports for ABC’s signature news programs, including “World News Tonight,” “Good Morning America” and “Nightline,” several people confirmed late Tuesday.

The choppy, poorly shot video, released Wednesday morning by Project Veritas, captured Wright on what appeared to be a hidden camera, seeming to complain in general terms about political coverage.
