The dominant Influenza strain this year is H3N2. This particular strain has a history of causing more hospitalizations and more deaths. The Current Flu Has Already Killed 44,116 People. This Year’s Vaccine Is Even Less Effective than Prior Years. Many hospitals are reaching what is called “surge capacity”; the ability to handle a sudden and dramatic increase in the number of patients needing immediate care.

This is happening because there are more patients seeking out emergency care, and they are staying in the hospital longer leading to a scarcity of hospital beds and available staff.

Brazil's ex-President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was barred Thursday from leaving the country after an appeals court upheld his corruption conviction, the Globo television network said.

Lula denied on Wednesday receiving a seafront apartment from a construction company in exchange for bribes after three judges increased his jail term from 9.5 years to 12 years and a month.

The Brazilian Workers’ Party (PT) said it would still nominate Lula, who was president from 2003 to 2011, to run in next year’s election despite his confirmed conviction.

Billions of pieces of plastic on coral reefs send disease soaring, research reveals

Scientists examined 125,000 corals across the Asia-Pacific region, home to half the world’s reefs, and found 89% of those fouled by plastic were suffering disease. On plastic-free reefs, 4% of the corals were diseased.

The work is highly significant because it is the first to examine the impact of plastic on disease in any marine organism and also the first to produce a large-scale estimate of how much plastic pollutes the sea floor.

At least 8 million tonnes of plastic are dumped in the ocean every year. Microplastics, formed when plastics are broken up, can be mistaken for food by sea creatures.

The Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) has reached a significant growth rate and should continue its development, Russian President Vladimir Putin has told leaders of the five-state bloc, according to the Kremlin website. “We assume it is necessary to accelerate implementation of the whole ‘digital agenda’ of the union, and to coordinate efforts on development of the ‘internet economy,’ creation of general digital trade rules, equal standards of exchange, and protection of information,” he said in the statement.

Putin called for the enactment of high technologies in public administration, industry, customs regulation systems and other areas, as well as “launching joint competitive, innovative and knowledge-intensive industries.”

According to the Russian president, it is important to “continue working jointly with our integration partners to remove the remaining barriers, limitations and restrictions in the way of building a common economic space. Our task is to intensify efforts towards creating single markets for goods and services, and providing conditions for free capital and workforce flow.”

The bill, however, doesn't set up a commercial market for the sale of marijuana.

All cases were related to patients had also come from either the Horn of Africa or Sudan.

Trump cites federal report on foreign-born terrorists to urge immigration reform

President Donald Trump on Tuesday used a new report from the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security — revealing that nearly three out of four individuals convicted on international terrorism charges in the U.S. were foreign-born — to call for immigration reform.

The DHS and DOJ released the report to “be more transparent with the American people,” abiding by the guidelines of Trump’s March 6 executive order, known as the travel ban.

According to the report, at least 549 people were convicted of international terrorism-related charges in the U.S. between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2016. Of those convicted, 254 were not U.S. citizens, 148 were foreign-born and received citizenship and 147 were citizens by birth.

DHS in 2017 denied U.S. entry to 2,554 people on the terror watch list.

Forbes: Cannabis Could Be The Most Profitable Ingredient In Skincare, If The U.S. Government Allows It

Lord Jones co-founder Cindy Capobianco describes her luxury cannabis-infused product in the same manner as any maker of a prestige natural skincare brand: it's made in small batches, organic ingredients, medicinal value of said ingredients. With a body lotion and face products slated for release later this year, Lord Jones is trying to be a prestige natural skincare brand. One major difference: Lord Jones employs a team of lawyers to ensure they don’t have to tussle with the DEA over a moisturizer.

Though cannabis is more mainstream than ever with 29 states and Washington, D.C. having legalized medical and/or recreational marijuana, the fact that it's still classified by the federal government as a Schedule I drug means companies like Lord Jones are racking up the legal fees as they attempt to navigate the grey area of selling cannabis-based skincare products. Cannabis has at least 80 different cannabinoids, a group of active compounds which give the plant its medical and psychoactive properties.
