  • A new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that Zika-infected women who are in their third trimester have virtually no chance of having children with microcephaly. Troublingly, the same study shows that women who exhibit no symptoms can still give birth to babies with brain abnormalities.

  • The Zika virus has been tied to birth defects in the babies and fetuses of six women in the U.S. who were infected during their pregnancies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported on Thursday.

    Three of the women have given birth to infants with birth defects linked to Zika, such as microcephaly and brain damage, the CDC said, citing data reported to its U.S. Zika pregnancy registry as of June 9.

    Three others lost babies with birth defects, either through miscarriage, stillbirth or termination of pregnancy. The data are collected from U.S. states and the District of Columbia.

    Millions of people in america live in abject poverty yet america is meant to be the richest and most advanced country in the world - care to explain that? You cannot even care for your own because republicans have been too busy siphoning off that wealth to enrich the 1% while most others live in various degrees of poverty. Your health care system is broken, infrastructure falling apart etc and thats because you have been paying the lowest taxes in the western world. So yeah its been a great success right?

  • "One thing I've learned about the press is that they're always hungry for a good story, and the more sensational the better ... If you do things that are bold or controversial, the press is going to write about you." But what might have been entertainingly outrageous when it sprung from the rubbery orifice of some ephemeral campaign novelty becomes downright terrifying when there's a real chance this guy could become the most powerful person in the world.

    Trump appeared in Atlanta, two days after delivering a speech and multiple interviews in the wake of a mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando by a man claiming to be allied with the terror group ISIS. In his remarks, which were broadly criticized, Trump reiterated his call for a ban on Muslim immigration to the US, and effectively accused American Muslims -- as a group -- of willfully protecting what he said were “thousands of shooters” hiding in the US population. He called for surveillance of mosques and suggested that President Obama might be tacitly allowing terrorists to strike in the US.

  • Politifact from the Tampa Bay Times checks statements of candidates, politicians and advocacy groups for accuracy. It keeps a running breakdown of the results, which gives you a good, rough indicator of how often a person or group is lying to you.

    Ben Carson - Lying Frequency 100% (Pants on Fire 0%; 3 statements)

    Donald Trump - Lying Frequency 83% (Pants on Fire 21%; 29 statements)

    Ted Cruz - Lying Frequency 70% (Pants on Fire 8%; 49 statements)

  • On Tuesday, Kaiser Health News published a lengthy article about a potentially tragic piece of irony: that the U.S. states where the Zika virus will likely hit first, and hit hardest—Florida and Texas—are among the least prepared to minimize its impact.

  • Fear of the Zika virus today? No, those were Republicans in 2014 as they hammered the Obama administration in the final weeks of the midterm campaign for failing to react quickly and decisively enough to the possible spread of the Ebola virus, which never really became a domestic threat. The politically heated attacks cooled quickly after the election, but the message was credited with helping Republicans sow unease about the administration as they chalked up big wins in Congress.

  • Florida Sen. Marco Rubio told a reporter Thursday to “write a story on Zika” when confronted with questions on his support for Donald Trump.

    Rubio, who relentlessly attacked Trump while competing against him for the Republican nomination, was asked by a reporter for The Weekly Standard whether his support for the New York businessman was now unconditional.

    “I don’t have anything new to add from what I’ve already said. I’ve talked about it all week long,” Rubio said.

    That reply didn’t appear to satisfy the reporter. The journalist pressed Rubio again, asking for specific reasons Hillary Clinton would be worse for the US, considering the senator openly questioned whether Trump had the temperament to control America’s nuclear weapons.

    “I just don’t have anything new to add to the campaign. When I’m here in the Capitol, I’m trying to focus on my work,” Rubio replied.

    The senator then quipped: “Now I’m focused on [things] like Zika. Write a story on Zika.”

  • House Republicans are proud of the fact that their $622 million bill—one-third of the Obama administration’s request—has offsets built in. It siphons money from leftover Ebola funds and other programs to fund Zika through the end of this fiscal year, which ends in September. They say the roughly $600 million already diverted from Ebola coffers has worked well to tie public-health efforts over, and they plan to offer more money in next year’s appropriations package. The Senate’s bill, which would carry into the next fiscal year, is not offset at all.

  • Mosquitoes bearing Zika — a virus that can cause birth defects when contracted by pregnant women — are expected to reach the United States as soon as this summer, with Florida and Texas likely to be among the hardest-hit states.

    But support for women’s health care, along with family planning resources, has either been scaled back or significantly restructured, in part because of funding restrictions placed on women’s clinics that, in addition to other services, provide abortions. Also, both states declined to expand Medicaid. Those decisions, many advocates say, are putting a squeeze on the health care system’s ability to educate women about Zika’s risks and minimize its impact.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Republicans in control of negotiations on long-delayed funding to combat the Zika virus are promising a quick agreement, as behind-the-scenes negotiations have focused on a potential deal in the range of a $1.1 billion measure passed by the Senate last month.

    A trickier issue involves whether to pair the Zika funds with cuts to other programs as called for by House Republicans to defray the measure's effect on the budget deficit. Democrats, whose votes may be needed to pass the final measure, are against the idea.

  • Heath officials have confirmed two more cases of Zika virus in King County, and one of them is the mother of a teenager who recently learned she has the virus.

    That brings the total to four in the county and eight in Washington state.

    Public Health Seattle & King County said one of the new cases involved a woman in her 30s who had traveled to Honduras. Marla Evans of SeaTac also tested positive for Zika. Evans visited Haiti with her daughter, 17-year-old Olivia Evans, who also tested positive for Zika.

    Olivia Evans learned late last month that she had contracted the virus.

    "I was speechless, I didn't know how to react," she said. "I was very shocked and then I got very sad."

    Marla Evans said she's unhappy that she had to wait more than two months for her test results to come back.

  • You can’t buy a Zika test in a drugstore. But health departments are preparing to test patients exposed in affected countries or complaining of symptoms. Results take up to 20 days. New York City will be testing “very large” numbers of women for Zika, according to Deputy Health Commissioner Dr. Jay Varma. So far, 18 pregnant women have tested positive.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • An early report on Zika spread in Colombia reveals that close to 12,000 pregnant women have the virus.

    In the report released Wednesday in The New England Journal of Medicine, Colombian researchers and scientists at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that as of April, there were 65,726 cases of Zika reported in Colombia, with double the number of infections in women compared to men (this could be due to the fact that more women may be tested due to the risks to pregnancy).

  • Puerto Rico is ground zero in the U.S. fight against Zika. The CDC says a quarter of its population could be infected with the virus by the end of the year. But Puerto Rico is broke. Prevention is expensive. Congressional funding has yet to be passed. And Zika is creeping north. The mosquito that can carry it has been found all over the Gulf Coast and beyond. This hour On Point, the frontline of the U.S. battle against Zika – Puerto Rico.

    Scan Astoria Park with your eyes and it is hard to miss the high dive pool. The towering diving platforms have been closed to the public for years, but the pool beneath never stopped capturing rainwater.
    On a recent Thursday, you could see a faded basketball floating in the cloudy water, and knee-high weeds growing out of the pool.

    "It’s definitely a mosquito breeding ground,” said neighbor Ian Eastwick, as he walked by the abandoned pool. "That’s where they hang out. That’s where they come from."
    "I think they need to clean it up, man," added Les Fernandez, as he finished his workout in the park. "This is a popular park."
