  • Extreme heat takes withering toll in teeming Philippine jails

    Jun 18, 2024

    MANILA - Amid a historic heat wave in the Philippines, few places have been harder to bear than the country's overcrowded jails and prisons. As temperatures rose past 122 degrees in parts of the country last month, jails reported thousands of cases of boils, rashes and skin disease among inmates. Authorities raced to reduce the crowding, which was caused by a draconian six-year campaign against drugs started by Rodrigo Duterte when he was president. Philippine detention facilities are the...

  • What research actually says about social media and kids' health

    Jun 18, 2024

    There is no clear scientific evidence that social media is causing mental health issues among young people. Public health officials are pushing for regulation anyway.

Murthy on Monday called for social media platforms to add warnings reminding parents and kids that the apps might not be safe, citing rising rates of mental health problems among children and teens. It follows an advisory Murthy issued last year about the health threat of loneliness for Americans, in...

The ad then displays Trump's Georgia mug shot taken following his indictment for...

  • Russia's Putin to visit North Korea, amid growing military cooperation

    Jun 18, 2024

    SEOUL - Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit North Korea for talks with leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday, furthering concerns about the growing military cooperation between the two states at a time when Moscow is hungry for munitions to use in its war against Ukraine. The pair will likely use the visit to again pledge public support for each other, rebuffing U.S.-led efforts to isolate Putin over his invasion of Ukraine and Kim over his pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles....

  • Celtics run away from Mavericks, secure a record 18th NBA championship

    Jun 18, 2024

    BOSTON - The Boston Celtics saw 16 years of accumulated playoff pressure lifted in one glorious instant. For the first four games of the NBA Finals, the Celtics couldn't dial in their three-point offense. Open shots rimmed off; contested shots completely missed the rim. But shortly before halftime of Monday's Game 5 against the Dallas Mavericks, back-up guard Payton Pritchard pulled up from behind midcourt and swished in a buzzer-beating heave. Pritchard had made little impact in the series,...

"Entering the summer of 2024, the market appears strong for young workers," said Oriane Casale, assistant director of the Minnesota Labor...

  • Bill aims to ease teacher shortage at tribal schools by granting federal pensions to educators

    Jun 18, 2024

    WASHINGTON – Teachers have been in short supply across Arizona. Nowhere is that felt more than at schools run by Native American tribes. Arizona has 34 such schools, plus 20 others operated by the Bureau of Indian Education, or BIE. Most of the tribally controlled schools are in remote parts of the state, far from towns or metropolitan areas. That makes finding teachers tough, and the pay and benefits tribes can offer – often less than other schools – makes it even more challenging. "It's extre...
