Canada’s travel rules unfair to first-year foreign students, U.S. parents say

jhon yudha

WASHINGTON — Parents of students in the United States who hoped to begin their university studies in Canada this fall are frantically trying to convince the federal government to relax rules that make it next to impossible for their kids to enter the country.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has closed the door to students with study permits granted after March 18, the day Canada and the U.S. announced a ban on non-essential cross-border travel, while students with pre-existing valid permits will be allowed in.

Some parents say that discriminates against first-year students, most of whom didn’t have time to get their permits approved before the deadline after receiving an offer of acceptance from Canadian schools.

“The way things are right now, the only ones that are not able to come into Canada are the freshmen, and that makes no sense to anyone,” said Anna Marti, a resident of New

5 Carrot Juice Benefits and Recipes To Make It At Home

jhon yudha

The wellness world has evolved immensely the past few decades. (Biggest understatement ever, right?) It wasn’t that long ago where tracking steps (and fitness trackers themselves) was a brand-new concept, and athleisure wasn’t even a word, much less a lucrative clothing category. But healthy juices have long been a staple among the health set—including carrot juice, one of the OG flavors.

However, unlike some other juicing trends, carrot juice benefits are the real deal. It’s no wonder that the drink has stood the test of time as a go-to beverage, despite so much else changing within the wellness world.

Here, registered dietitian Kim Melton, RD, highlights the benefits of carrot juice, which is exactly what it sounds like: juice produced with carrots. Plus, get tips on how to make sure you’re buying one that’s truly healthy and see recipes for how to make your own at home.

‘It’s my livelihood and it’s my coaches’ livelihood’: Gym owners weigh in on possibility of closing again

jhon yudha

Central District Health will discuss on Tuesday whether gyms will be shut down again as coronavirus rates continue to rise in Idaho.

BOISE, Idaho — During a virtual meeting earlier this week, Central District Health discussed that Ada County is still in the “red” zone, meaning community spread is significant in the area.

About 45 minutes into the board meeting, board member Dr. Ted Epperly suggested additional precautionary measures for the county.

“What I’d like for us to absolutely consider is, do we need to do more?” Epperly said. “We could consider draft language, have it come back at the next meeting so the public could see this, but in particular what I would bring up is decreasing community groups to less than 10 and the consideration for closing gyms.”

Prior to that statement, Dr. Epperly mentioned the coronavirus report card the white house issued several weeks ago on all

A college degree at 19. A medical school graduate with a Ph.D. at 27.

By the time he completed training in vascular surgery in 2014, Dr. Sapan Desai had cast himself as an ambitious physician, an entrepreneur with an MBA and a prolific researcher published in medical journals.

Then the novel coronavirus hit, and Desai seized the moment. With a Harvard professor, he produced two studies in May that almost instantly disrupted multiple clinical trials amid the pandemic.

One study’s findings were particularly dramatic, reporting that anti-malaria drugs like hydroxychloroquine, which President Donald Trump promoted, were linked to increased deaths of COVID-19 patients. But that study and another were retracted in June by the renowned

‘A day of hope.’ Pence visits Miami for launch of COVID vaccine trial.

With President Donald Trump’s poll numbers flagging in Florida and the state continuing to struggle with one of the nation’s highest rates of new COVID-19 cases, Vice President Mike Pence visited the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine on Monday to focus attention on one of the pandemic’s few potential bright spots: the rapid development of a vaccine against the disease.

Noting the president’s emphasis on speed, Pence said the federal government has positioned itself through public-private collaborations with drug makers to ramp up mass production of a vaccine at the first sign of its safety and effectiveness.

“We’re actually having these companies produce the vaccines as we speak, and as soon as they’re confirmed to be safe and effective we’ll have tens of millions of doses ready to distribute across the country,” Pence said, after he met with doctors and researchers at UM’s medical campus in downtown

Northwestern Wants 5,000 Volunteers For COVID-19 Vaccine Trials

CHICAGO — Northwestern Medicine is looking for 5,000 people at risk for contracting coronavirus to sign up for clinical trials aimed at preventing the spread of the virus.

The clinical trials run by Northwestern’s Feinberg School of Medicine are seeking people at least 18 years old working in jobs that put them at an increased risk for contracting coronavirus including health care workers, grocery and retail store employees, public transportation employees and factory workers. The registry is also seeking volunteers from racial and ethic groups disproportionately affected by COVID-19 including African Americans, Native Americans and Hispanic people with underlying health conditions.

“We want to recruit participants in the Chicago area who are at risk for exposure to COVID-19 and who are potentially interested in participating in different studies for prevention of the infection,” Dr. Karen Krueger, the principle investigator of the registry, said in a statement.
