  • Buttigieg Slams Trump Jr. For Saying COVID-19 Deaths Are 'Almost Nothing'

    Former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg lashed out at the eldest son of President Donald Trump on Friday. On Thursday, Donald Trump Jr. falsely minimized the deaths related to coronavirus, telling Fox News the Trump administration had the pandemic under control. Cases and deaths from the novel coronavirus in the US are rising rapidly. The US broke its single-day coronavirus case record last week with over 88,000 new COVID-19 cases in a single day, in addition to over 1,000 deaths. Business Insider reports Buttigieg criticized Trump Jr. for being 'out of touch' when he said US coronavirus deaths are down to 'almost nothing.' Tell that to any of the Americans who are confronting what is literally the worst mass casualty event in this country since World War II. Pete Buttigieg

  • Brazil, the country with the highest Trans killing rate in the world

    Sao Paulo, Feb 5 (EFE), (CAMERA: Wallace Carvalho) .- Since she was a child, Isabella Souza has suffered beatings and abuse, being a trans woman in Brazil, the country with the highest killing rate for trans people in the world. STATEMENTS Susy Muniz, 28 years old"Being trans is like killing ten lions a day. You have to fight against the whole world, against an entire society, against a policy that wants to exterminate you. You fight to exist, to have the right to your name. Basic things, basic struggles and that wears us down.""For me it was much more attractive for a man to find me sexy, to see me as a sexual object, to see me as a target who he could kill or spank at any moment.""The data from Antra and the homicides against trans women, the trans femicides, reveal the level of cruelty of the murders, which one does not imagine happens in Brazil. People burned, stoned, hanged, people who have their hearts torn out. So, besides the very high number of homicides, there is a cruelty in them ""It is very difficult to have to fight all the time. It hurts to have to fight all the time, it is tiring, exhausting having to fight all the time. We just want to live, be ourselves, be able to dream and be happy"Isabella Souza, 23 years old"My father always hit me because I'm a trans girl. I couldn't dress as a girl, he took me to the salon to cut my hair and he hit me every day. Once, I had to go to school with glasses because of the bruises, dark glasses""I sold my body to buy drugs and used drugs.""To endure the night awake on the avenue I have to be under the effect of chemicals. Because sober, I could not deal with the cold or the idiots who come to cause problems. There are people who come with a box of rotten eggs and throw them at us, with fire extinguishers, cups with urine. We have already been through a lot on the streets."Elasarah Madalena, 32 years old"The other day I was in the public service of the subway and a lady told me that it was a female bathroom. I asked her if she was seeing a man there. She immediately complained to the guard, who came and told me that I could not use the 'Women's bathroom'. If I go to the men's bathroom, what do you think they'll do to me? A thousand things can happen to me dressed like this. I'm not dressed in an ordinary way. I think I'm dressed like a woman my age.""Every human being who is transmuted suffers until they accept their selves. Many do not even succeed and take their own lives before, either because of religion or because of the family. Moreover, sometimes the family itself, the parents, take the life of their children for not accepting them."

  • Coronavirus pandemic: Ireland records highest transmission rate in the world

    In the midst of a third wave of coronavirus infections, Ireland now holds the unhappy title of the nation with the highest transmission rate in the world. The country of five million has suffered only 2,397 virus deaths to date and gained plaudits for the way it handled two previous pandemic waves. In December, it had the lowest incidence rate in the European Union after becoming the first member country to launch a second lockdown. But now it sits atop a world table tracking fresh infections. There were 1,288 confirmed cases per million of the population on Monday according to data compiled by Oxford University -- placing Ireland first, ahead of the Czech Republic and Slovenia.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
