Fact check: Biden falsely claims journalists had all said his vaccination goal was impossible to meet

  • News source: CNN.com - RSS Channel - Politics
  • Replies: 0
Washington (CNN)President Joe Biden delivered a factually accurate Thursday speech about the coronavirus pandemic. But then, after he signed a series of executive actions intended to address the crisis, he was asked by a reporter whether the vaccination goal he announced in December -- 100 million doses administered in 100 days -- is sufficiently ambitious.

The question of whether the goal is too modest has arisen in part because the US is approaching a 1-million-doses-administered-per-day level even before Biden gets to implement his plans. The US...

Why It Can Be Harder To Fight Hookworms In Alabama Than In Argentina

  • News source: Susan Brink
  • Replies: 0
This story definitely has a yuck factor.

It's about hookworms.

When hookworm eggs land on moist, warm ground, via human feces, they develop into larvae, raise their tiny selves upward, and wave back and forth, looking for bare feet to latch onto. The parasites penetrate the skin, enter the bloodstream, and eventually migrate to the small intestine — where they settle in, mature and start sucking blood and laying eggs. When the worms and their eggs are passed in a host's stool, the cycle begins anew.

Hookworm disease flourishes in hot, moist...
