7 Jobs That Increase Your Risk of Cancer

Could your job increase your risk of cancer? Nearly 40% of Americans will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives, according to the National Cancer Institute.

While most people are aware of the major risk factors involved with the disease, not many have stopped to think about whether or not their job could be making them sick — until now. Reader's Digest released a report listing several jobs that can increase your risk of cancer. We look at seven of those:

1. Flight attendant — Experts are finding mounting evidence that links the job of a flight attendant to an increased risk of cancer. This could be because at high altitudes, cabin crew are exposed to more ionizing radiation, which could lead to several types of cancer that affect the colon, breast, stomach, and liver.


2 Californians killed in alleged drunk-driving wrecks with illegal immigrants

Raul Gulliver and Margaret Abudawood are two Californians who were killed within hours of each other in different parts of the state by drunk drivers. Both of the suspects are illegal aliens.

The media make sure that every American knows the name of every illegal immigrant who dies in DHS custody. But they do everything they can to cover up the number of people in America killed by illegal aliens who should never have been in the country. Raul Gulliver and Margaret Abudawood are names that should be known to all Americans.

Raul Gulliver, 34, from Riverside County, was riding his bike Saturday morning when he was struck head-on by a pickup truck driven by Hector Manuel Polanco, a 32-year-old illegal alien from Mexico. Polanco was charged with two felonies. Not a single local media report mentioned the fact that Gulliver was an illegal alien or that ICE had placed a detainer on him. But this week, ICE spokesperson Lori Haley in California confirmed to me that ICE had placed a detainer on Polanco on April 27.


8th Place: A High School Girl’s Life After Transgender Students Join Her Sport

When two high school athletes who were born male but identify as female took first and second place at Connecticut’s girls indoor track championship this year, it wasn’t just a local news story.
To some, it was a story of triumph and courage. The winner, a junior from Bloomfield High School, set a girls state indoor record of 6.95 seconds in the 55-meter dash, and went on to win the New England titles in both the 55-meter dash and the 300-meter dash.
To others, it was a story of shock and disappointment: Is this the end of women’s sports?
To Selina Soule, a 16-year-old runner from Glastonbury, it was personal.

America's $1.6 Trillion Student Debt Crisis Triggers Suicidal Thoughts: Survey

There are currently 44 million student loan borrowers who owe approximately $1.6 trillion in student debt. Student loan borrowers are feeling the pressure of insurmountable debts as the economy slows, wages stagnate, and borrowing costs rise. As a result of taking out too much debt, new evidence shows an undeniable impact on borrowers' mental health.

Student Loan Planner surveyed 829 people, which revealed shocking data about debt load, student loan depression, and suicide.

As debt loads increase, so does the borrower's likelihood of suicidal thoughts, the study stated.

Researchers found 1 in 9 borrowers who owe $80,000 to $150,000 contemplated suicide because of their debt.

"The feeling of hopelessness gets you into a place where you feel like you can't recover," said Motlagh, a clinical psychologist with $300,000 in student loans.
The survey notes that borrowers with debt loads between $80k to $240k have the most suicidal thoughts.


Trump’s new border directives may stop fanning the flames. But it’s time to douse them

The situation along the southwestern border has long surpassed unsustainable or emergency levels and has ventured into uncharted, untenable waters. Looking back, the situation at the border that led to the five-week partial government shutdown now appears to be child’s play. What started out, around this time last year, as confusion over radical court rulings regarding prosecutions at the border and children being separated from parents has morphed into a full-scale invasion and the breakdown of our duly passed immigration laws. Now is not the time for blame, half-truth, or half-measures. It’s the time to decisively act! Nibbling around the edges on peripheral aspects of this issue might have worked to stem the greater tide a year ago, but the present situation calls for a complete shutoff at the border.

On Monday, the White House announced a new directive for the DHS and the attorney general to establish fees for asylum requests, to end work permits for those coming in at the border, and to establish regulations to adjudicate claims within 180 days. These measures are either vague, long overdue, and/or deal with the tangential aspects of the invasion and further accede to the premise that we can adjudicate our way out of this invasion.

The DHS not only releasing hundreds of thousands of aliens, but providing them with work permits was an egregious policy of the Obama administration and was never even promulgated in a formal regulation. It should never have been continued by this administration. Yet the Trump administration handed out 750,000 work permits to bogus asylum seekers or those presumed to have a credible fear. And that was just through last September, before the large numbers began coming over. Even now, the president is calling on DHS to “propose regulations” barring work permits rather than immediately terminating Obama’s policy today. And while getting rid of this horrible policy is certainly a welcome move, it merely removes one gratuitous act of fanning the flames; it doesn’t extinguish the flames by flatly denying all credible fear at the border, as is within the president’s power.


Bannon: We're In An Economic War With China. It's Futile To Compromise

Getting tough with China to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States was the linchpin of President Trump’s electoral march through the Rust Belt during his 2016 victory. Today, the goal of the radical cadre running China — the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) — is to be the global hegemonic power. The president’s threatened tariffs on Sunday demonstrate the severity of this threat. But as Washington and Beijing wrap up months of negotiations on a trade deal this month, whatever emerges won’t be a trade deal. It will be a temporary truce in a years-long economic and strategic war with China.

These are six “understandings” that highlight why it is futile to compromise with this regime.

The first understanding: The CCP has been waging economic war against industrial democracies ever since China joined the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001, and now China has emerged as the greatest economic and national security threat the United States has ever faced.

As a framework for the current trade talks, China must agree to end forced technology transfers; intellectual property theft; cyberintrusions into business networks; currency manipulation; high tariff and nontariff barriers; and unfair subsidies to state-owned enterprises. However, if the CCP agrees to the United States’ demands in an enforceable manner, it would amount to a legal and regulatory dismantling of Chinese state capitalism.


Claiming to fear Trump, Nancy Pelosi lets the cat out of the bag about her real fear: Her own party

Orange man bad, orange man scary. Orange man will steal your election if it's close.

So goes the bluster Democratic House speaker Nancy Pelosi had for her fellow Democrats, revealed in the press, urging them to focus on staying in the center.

The press, of course, focused on the supposed Trump threat — here, here, here, and here, as did Glenn Thrush in his original New York Times report that is being cited:

WASHINGTON — Speaker Nancy Pelosi does not believe President Trump can be removed through impeachment — the only way to do it, she said this week, is to defeat him in 2020 by a margin so "big" he cannot challenge the legitimacy of a Democratic victory.

That is something she worries about.

"We have to inoculate against that, we have to be prepared for that," Ms. Pelosi said during an interview at the Capitol on Wednesday as she discussed her concern that Mr. Trump would not give up power voluntarily if he lost re-election by a slim margin next year.

Levin: ‘Tell me, why are the Democrats so defensive?’

Friday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin shared that the unemployment rate has reached 3.6 percent, the lowest unemployment rate in 49 years. Levin explained that because of variables such as job changes and maternity leave, such a low number is considered full employment — yet the mainstream media has not discussed it.

“People should be celebrating in the streets; people should be celebrating at happy hour. The media should be celebrating; their hosts should have smiles on their faces, ear to ear. This is incredible. It truly is. It truly is a massive economic upswing. Certainly compared to recent administrations, and unquestionably compared to the last administration. Capitalism works,” Levin said.


Book: Obama saw Trump's win as personal insult

Former President Obama viewed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's 2016 loss to President Trump as a "personal insult" and a defeat of his own legacy, according to new updates to a 2017 book.

Updates to New York Times correspondent Peter Baker's history of the Obama presidency, "Obama: The Call of History," published by the Daily Mail, detail how the president was overcome with anger in the days following Clinton's defeat to Trump, which Obama saw as a result of her inability to translate his policy successes into a winnable message.

"Obama may not have been on the ballot, but it was hard not to see the vote as a 'personal insult,' as he had called it on the campaign trail," Baker writes, according to Fox News.

"This stings," Obama said after the election, according to Baker. "This hurts."


SBY MSP Press Release 5-7-19 (DUI/CDS Possession)

Doorway to the Americas: One of Britain's finest Tudor homes where famed explorer planned 1607 Jamestown expedition to establish first English settlement in US hits market for £2.25m

One of Britain's finest Tudor homes where a historic 17th Century voyage to the US was planned has gone on the market for £2.25m.

Grade I listed Otley Hall in Suffolk was once home of explorer Bartholomew Gosnold who led the 1607 Jamestown expedition, which established the first English settlement in Virginia, US.

Its eye-catching oak panelling is reputed to have been moved from Henry VIII's lord chancellor Cardinal Wolsey's chambers at Hampton Court Palace.

In the wall of one of the bedrooms Tudor nails can be found from which silk tapestries were once suspended.

The spectacular 16th century moated property, in the idyllic village of Otley, was described by the scholar Sir Nikolaus Pevsner as 'perhaps the outstanding Tudor House in east Suffolk'.


Trump pardons ex-Army lieutenant convicted of killing suspected Al Qaeda terrorist in 2009

President Trump has pardoned a former Army lieutenant who was convicted in 2009 of killing an Iraqi prisoner suspected of being an Al Qaeda terrorist, the White House announced Monday evening.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders cited "broad support" for Michael Behenna, of Edmond, Okla., "from the military, Oklahoma elected officials, and the public" -- including 37 generals and admirals, along with a former Pentagon inspector general -- as the reason for Trump's clemency grant. Sanders also said Behenna had been a "model prisoner" while serving his sentence.

"In light of these facts, Mr. Behenna is entirely deserving of this Grant of Executive Clemency," Sanders concluded.

Very Disturbing...

My wife received a phone call on April 29 and May 5, 2019. The only thing they said was "hello ... this is social security please give us a call back at the following number."

My concern is that Social Security does not call just like IRS they mail you letters. I just dont want someone else to give out their information by mistake and these people drain their bank accounts, run up their credit cards, get their social security money, etc.

Thank you.

Study: Universal basic income doesn’t work.

A study published this week sheds doubt on ambitious claims made for universal basic income (UBI), the scheme that would give everyone regular, unconditional cash payments that are enough to live on. Its advocates claim it would help to reduce poverty, narrow inequalities and tackle the effects of automation on jobs and income. Research conducted for Public Services International, a global trade union federation, reviewed for the first time 16 practical projects that have tested different ways of distributing regular cash payments to individuals across a range of poor, middle-income and rich countries, as well as copious literature on the topic.

It could find no evidence to suggest that such a scheme could be sustained for all individuals in any country in the short, medium or longer term – or that this approach could achieve lasting improvements in well-being or equality. The research confirms the importance of generous, non-stigmatising income support, but everything turns on how much money is paid, under what conditions and with what consequences for the welfare system as a whole.

From Kenya and southern India to Alaska and Finland, cash payment schemes have been claimed to show that UBI “works”. In fact, what’s been tested in practice is almost infinitely varied, with cash paid at different levels and intervals, usually well below the poverty line and mainly to individuals selected because they are severely disadvantaged, with funds provided by charities, corporations and development agencies more often than by governments.

Experiments in India and Kenya have been funded, respectively, by Unicef and Give Directly, a US charity supported by Google. They give money to people on very low incomes in selected villages for fixed periods of time.

US to allow 30,000 more visas for seasonal workers

The Trump administration plans to let an additional 30,000 foreigners return to the United States through September for seasonal work, a move that reflects how the booming economy has complicated President Donald Trump's hard-line efforts on immigration.

Details of the plan were in a draft rule obtained by The Associated Press. It would benefit oyster shucking companies, fisheries, loggers and seasonal hotels. All use the visas to hire migrants for temporary work they say Americans won't do.

The visas, known as H-2Bs, will go only to returning foreign workers who have had the visa before, over the past three budget years. Many go back to the same employers year after year. Those workers have had background checks, are trusted and are not likely to stay past their visa, officials said.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will begin taking applications from employers on behalf of the workers once the temporary rule is published in the Federal Register. That is expected Wednesday.


ICE Program Lets Cops Detain Illegal Migrants For Up to 48 Hours

Immigration and Customs Enforcement reportedly has a new program to let local police cooperate in turning over illegal immigrants even if the officers are limited by sanctuary city policies.

The Washington Times reported that under the program, police won’t be involved in asking about legal status or citizenship, but will have permission to detain someone for up to 48 hours to give ICE a chance to take custody.

According to the news outlet, the Warrant Service Office program piggybacks on an existing program that trains local police to enforce immigration law. But the WSO requires less training, and instead of making local police start the deportation process, lets them hold targets for pickup under an ICE warrant, the news outlet reported.


ICE launches program to strengthen immigration enforcement

LARGO, Fla. – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced today the creation of a new collaborative program intended for local law-enforcement that wish to honor immigration detainers but are prohibited due to state and local policies that limit cooperation with the agency.

The Warrant Service Officer (WSO) program was launched during a signing ceremony with Lieutenant Governor of Florida Jeanette Núñez, Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, National Sheriffs’ Association Executive Director Jonathan Thompson and ICE Deputy Executive Associate Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) David Marin. The effort, also intended for rural jurisdictions that lack the budget and personnel resources to become 287(g) partners, has gained interest from several other local law-enforcement agencies, which also attended the ceremony, and additional signings are expected soon.
“Policies that limit cooperation with ICE undermine public safety, prevent the agency from executing its federally mandated mission and increase the risks for officers forced to make at-large arrests in unsecure locations,” said Acting ICE Director Matthew Albence. “The WSO program will protect communities from criminal aliens who threaten vulnerable populations with violence, drugs and gang activity by allowing partner jurisdictions the flexibility to make immigration arrests in their jail or correctional facility.”
Once a WSO officer serves an administrative warrant and executes an arrest on behalf of ICE, the agency has 48 hours to conduct a transfer of custody unless an Intergovernmental Service Agreement exists. If ICE does not take the alien into custody within 48 hours, the individual must be released. WSO officers will only make arrests within the confines of the jail at which they work, and ICE will still issue immigration detainers with partner jurisdictions.

Walker: Republicans need to wake up to Democrats’ nationwide judicial power grab

Former President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder won’t tell the truth when it comes to their redistricting strategy, but here it is: Pick a state, any state, and sue until it’s blue. They have spent years and millions of dollars selling the false narrative that Democrats draw “fair maps” while any and all Republican-drawn maps are “partisan gerrymanders.” While rhetorically cute, their primary goal has nothing to do with fighting gerrymandering as they repeatedly claim, but to put redistricting in the hands of unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats and lifetime-appointed judges.

Their strategy makes sense. There are plenty of unelected federal judges presiding over these redistricting cases who will enthusiastically toss out constitutionally drawn maps to help elect more Democrats. That’s exactly what happened recently in both Michigan and Ohio, despite the entirely dubious and suspect arguments from the left. It will also not be a surprise if liberal federal panels do the same thing in other states in the coming weeks.

Subject: Dark Money Org Created Fake Facebook News Groups to Reach Nevada Voters

A group promoting progressive health care policies in Nevada paid for Facebook advertisements in which the source of the content appeared to originate from a pair of local, state-based news organizations—news organizations that did not exist in any meaningful sense.

While the ads in question rolled out in 2018, the tactics of Health Care Voters for Nevada have contemporary importance as recent reporting has revealed the scope and influence of the organization's dark-money parent group, the Sixteen Thirty Fund.

"Trump's new tax law will hurt Latinos the most," one such ad reads, which appears to emanate from a posting by "Nevada News Now." However, there is no world wide web URL for Nevada News Now, and if it was a Facebook group, it has since been deleted.

Similar ads also appear from a group called "Silver State Sentinel" but little proof such an organization is real exists.

Facebook did not respond to requests about whether Nevada News Now or Silver State Sentinel was ever a Facebook group, but parts of the content suggest they both were.

A Tale Of Two Americas... Going South Together

A 25 percent tariff on Chinese goods coming into the USA. That’ll git her done, all right - if you mean pulling the plug on America’s holographic economy. For about thirty years this is how it worked: China sent a massive volume of finished goods to us and we paid them with a massive volume of US Treasury bonds at ever-lower interest rates. A great deal for us while it lasted. Or so it seemed. Eventually, China caught onto the swindle and began liquidating its US bond holdings to buy gold and other real goods like African mining rights and farmland, Iranian oil, and port facilities in strategic corners of the world.

Now China has obviously designed a policy to dissociate itself as much as possible from the losing trade racket with us and replace the American market by increments with whatever customer base it can cobble together from the rest of the world. The Belt-and-Road initiative to physically link China with Central Asia (and beyond) with railroad lines and highways through some of the most forbidding terrain on earth was an out-front part of the plan, which we haplessly financed by buying all that stuff they sent over here for decades, and giving them the time to complete that colossal project.

Buying all those cheap toaster-ovens, patio loungers, sneakers, sheet-rock screws, alarm clocks, croquet mallets… well, you name it, naturally made it uneconomical for America to make the same stuff, with all our silly-ass sentimental attachment to union wages, eight-hour workdays, and pollution regs, so we just steadily let the lights go out and the roofs fall in, and ramped up the “financialized” economy, with Wall Street parlaying Federal Reserve largess into an alternative universe of Three-Card-Monte scams using multilayered derivatives of promises to repay loans (that have poor prospects of ever being paid back).


Booker Plans Gun Registry And Bans; Dodges Question On Jailing Those Who Refuse

Democratic 2020 contender Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) on Monday announced a plan for gun control that calls for a ban on so-called 'assault weapons,' federal licenses for gun owners, and a probe into the nonprofit status of the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Booker's campaign called it the "most sweeping gun violence prevention plan ever put forth by a presidential candidate," reports the Washington Examiner's Emily Larsen.

"As president, we will make commonsense changes to our gun laws such as requiring a license to purchase a gun that includes universal background checks, banning assault weapons, and closing the loopholes that allow domestic abusers and people on terrorist watch lists to get their hands on a gun," Booker said in a statement. "I am sick and tired of hearing thoughts and prayers for the communities that have been shattered by gun violence — it is time for bold action."
Several other Democratic presidential candidates, including Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., have proposed universal background checks and a ban on "assault weapons" as part of their campaign platforms, but Booker goes further in proposing a national firearm licensing system.

Under the plan, individuals would need to submit fingerprints, complete a background check, and show completion of a certified gun safety course in order to obtain federal gun license. It would also limit gun purchasers to buying one handgun per month and ban "assault weapons," high-capacity magazines, and bump stocks. -Washington Examiner

University Provides 'Therapy Donkeys' To Students Ahead Of Finals

Move over goat yoga — the latest way for college students to de-stress before final exams is … therapy donkeys.

That’s right. The State University of New York Plattsburgh recently brought in a small herd of miniature donkeys to help students cope with the anxiety and pressure that comes with typical end-of-semester responsibilities such as tests and massive 10-page papers that are due.

A video of the recent festivities at the SUNY campus showed students laughing, petting and playing with the little donkeys, with Ken Besaw of Thera-Pets telling a local ABC news affiliate: “Spend 10 minutes with them. You’ll chill right out.”

Florida woman pulls alligator out of her pants during traffic stop

A Florida woman pulled an alligator out of her yoga pants during a traffic stop Monday morning in Punta Gorda.

The gator appeared after deputies asked the 26-year-old woman, "Do you have anything else?"

Deputies pulled over a pickup truck after the 23-year-old male driver failed to stop at a stop sign around 3:15 a.m., according to officials, WBBH-TV reported.

But the roughly 12-inch gator wasn't the only creature in the vehicle.


Admin Halts Disability Dues Scheme

Labor organizations will no longer be allowed to skim dues money from the checks of Medicaid patients under new rules adopted by the Trump administration.

The Department of Health and Human Services's Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services adopted a new regulation that will prohibit states from siphoning money from caregiver reimbursements to third parties. The rule takes direct aim at state policies enacted to enrich union coffers.

"State Medicaid programs are responsible for ensuring that taxpayer dollars are dedicated to providing healthcare services for low-income, vulnerable Americans and are not diverted in ways that do not comply with federal law," CMS Administrator Seema Verma said in a release. "This final rule is intended to ensure that providers receive their complete payment."

Several states have used forced dues schemes in the past to automatically deduct union fees from the reimbursement checks intended to pay for the care of disabled citizens. In many cases that money has gone to family members who serve as full-time caregivers to their severely disabled relatives.


Treasury Secretary Mnuchin denies House Dem's request for Trump's tax returns

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, in a letter Monday, denied House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal's request for President Trump's tax returns, saying the request lacked a “legitimate legislative purpose.”

“As you have recognized, the Committee’s request is unprecedented, and it presents serious constitutional questions, the resolution of which may have lasting consequences for all taxpayers,” the letter read.

Mnuchin told the Massachusetts Democrat he'd relied on the advice of the Justice Department. He concluded that the department was “not authorized to disclose the requested returns and return information.”


Migrant Paid $130 to ‘Rent’ Boy to Cross Border as Family

A Guatemalan man allegedly paid a family the equivalent of $130 to “rent” their eight-year-old son so that he could go to the U.S. as a “family,” federal prosecutors told a Tucson grand jury in March. He also allegedly paid another $130 (about 1,000 quetzales) to another person who created a false birth certificate for the child.

In a federal indictment reported on by, Maynor Velasquez Molina sought out a Guatemalan child he could use to get into the U.S. because he was told that would be “easier to get into the United States with a child,” a federal agent stated in a criminal complaint. Velasquez crossed the border with the young boy as part of a large group of 101 migrants who illegally crossed the border on February 18 just west of the Lukeville Port of Entry, the Arizona news outlet reported.

They made the illegal border crossing after traveling across Mexico by bus, the special agent stated. After being processed in the Tucson Sector, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents began talking to the man and eventually learned he paid for the use of the boy and for the false documents used in the smuggling case.


Hillary Clinton Heckled on Speaking Tour: 'You're Going to Jail'

Hillary Clinton had just settled on stage for the last night of her nationwide speaking tour with husband Bill Clinton in Las Vegas on Sunday when a man stood up and began yelling that she was going to jail.

Video footage of the incident was posted to Twitter by @DEPLORABLEHILL, a man who identifies himself as a Trump supporter and combat veteran. In the clip, the man can be heard shouting at Clinton during the opening stages of the evening.

"I’m a deplorable! I’m a deplorable! You’re going to jail, lady!" he yells. "You've all been deceived," he says to the audience.

The man, who was escorted out by security, drew a curt response from Hillary.


Trump Doubles Down: 'We're Not Going To Lose To Beijing Anymore'

Just when US equity futures were finally starting to move higher after Dow futures had lingered around the -500 level for most of the morning, President Trump doubled-down on his antagonistic stance toward Beijing, tweeting that the US was done losing "500 billion dollars" a year in trade to China.

The message was clear: Trump isn't backing down from his threats to hike tariffs and impose new ones, even after sending global markets into paroxysms with a series of tweets on Sunday.
"The United States has been losing, for many years, 600 to 800 Billion Dollars a year on Trade. With China we lose 500 Billion Dollars. Sorry, we’re not going to be doing that anymore!"
Trump latest tweet follows reports that Beijing was still planning to send a trade delegation to the US this week, but that Vice Premier Liu He, the official who has led the Beijing side during the now ten rounds of talks that have been held over the past year, might either delay a trip to Washington by a few days, or not go at all.
