Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Crusher of Sacred Cows – Rolling Stone
With its silly swipes at AOC, the American political establishment is once again revealing its blindness to its own unpopularity [...] The mortification on the Republican side has come more from media figures than actual elected officials. Still, there are plenty of people like Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) doing things like denouncing “this girl, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whatever she is” for preaching “socialism wrapped in ignorance.” A group of GOP House members booed her on the floor, to which she replied, “Don’t hate me cause you ain’t me, fellas.” [...] The latter issue, of course, is the real problem most of Washington has with “AOC”: her self-generated popularity and large social media presence means she doesn’t need to ask anyone’s permission to say anything. [...] She doesn’t have to run things by donors and she doesn’t need the assent of thinkfluencers like Cillizza or Max Boot (who similarly compared her to both Trump and Sarah Palin), because she almost certainly gains popularity every time one of those nitwits takes a swipe at her.

Top US student loans official resigns over 'open hostility' from White House | US news | The Guardian
“You have used the bureau to serve the wishes of the most powerful financial companies in America,” Frotman wrote, addressing his letter to Mulvaney. “The damage you have done to the bureau betrays these families and sacrifices the financial futures of millions of Americans in communities across the country.” [...] The student loan office is not alone. Under Mulvaney, the bureau has scaled back its enforcement work and has proposed revising or rescinding all of the rules and regulations it put into place under the Obama administration.

Sugar industry withheld research effects of sucrose 50 years ago, study claims | Science | The Guardian // See the Vegan Cardiologist Kim Williams arguing that it is fats meat beef and processed starches food sugar - // and the problem w evidence-based medicine and statistics and research manipulation // and see the new guidelines when to prescribe statins (now earlier) re chronic sick population v side effects v benefits // The problem could be much bigger than the two ISRF studies the researchers have scrutinised. The researchers conclude that the debates we now have on sugar’s effects on our health are potentially rooted in six decades of the sugar industry’s manipulation of scientific evidence.

Cancer tests in supermarket car parks to be launched by NHS | The Independent
- see the caveat of boosing your survival, measured by 5 years only from diagnoses, to diagnose earlier ... patient will still die from mostly majority of lung cancers anyway after the 5 year mark. but statistically counted as survivor. it is farcical. unethical moral especially considering anyways deadly diseases. does not help mental and well being. especially normal folk don't understand medical statistics cancer and evidence-based medicine. and ct scan(s) are NOT harmless, duh. Sure you identified a risk group smokers and ex smokers. but you don't do active screening for tgct for undescended testicle patients. see also the debate and conclusive evidence about breast cancer self-examination and mammography (nil benefit for the patient, over treatment over mis diagnoses, unneccesary interventions). &!
