NATO unity faces challenges amid leadership uncertainty

More news - Recent news As President Biden and his team prepared to celebrate NATO’s 75th anniversary, starting Tuesday night in Washington, the goal was to project unity and confidence. The intention was to send a clear message to Russian President Vladimir Putin and other adversaries that, despite more than two years of war in Ukraine, NATO had become stronger and more resolute in its mission to deter aggression. But as 38 world leaders began arriving on Monday, that confidence seemed to be wavering. Even before the summit officially began, doubts were raised about Biden’s potential for a second term and the specter of a possible return of former President Donald Trump. Trump, who once labeled NATO “obsolete,” has threatened to withdraw from the alliance and suggested he would give...

What warning signs made you leave your therapist? Share your story.

Related media - Breaking news Many people who have undergone mental health therapy often highlight the positive aspects of it, such as developing better coping skills, building stronger relationships, and achieving a calmer mind. But what happens when a therapist fails to help or even causes harm? A psychologist might send warning signals to a client by yawning during sessions, consistently arriving late, or offering poor advice. Patients can report unethical behavior to a counselor’s state licensing board, but there isn’t always a recourse for those who feel a therapist is poorly trained, inexperienced, or just bad at their job. Currently, no federal agency is charged with regulating psychotherapy. Have you ever started therapy but dropped out because the treatment was ineffective o...

Why does Oswaldo Cabrera wear a pearl necklace?

More news - Latest news In his first week in the majors, Oswaldo Cabrera showed off his versatility by playing multiple positions for the Yankees. With the ability to fit into four different positions, Cabrera stood out not only for his performance, but also for his distinctive No. 95 jersey and a faux pearl necklace that added a touch of style to his uniform. Ron Marinaccio, another Yankees rookie, praised Cabrera for his authenticity and indifference to other people’s opinions. Cabrera received the handmade necklace from Milton Ramos, an infielder he met in the minors who founded PawGripz, a company that makes rubber grips to protect players’ hands. Ramos also decided to create something stylish and sent the necklace to Cabrera, who has worn it ever since. The necklace, known as th...

Ferrari Ventures Into Electric Age Amid Industry Challenges

Related media - Breaking news In a new factory in northern Italy, Ferrari chassis slide onto robot trucks as engineers in cherry-red uniforms add components like the engine block, dashboard, and steering wheel, turning these bodies into hybrids. Soon: fully electric. There’s a lot at stake in Ferrari’s €200 million “e-building,” which opened last month. Almost twice the size of Rome’s Colosseum, the factory aims to propel the 77-year-old sports car maker, famous for the roar of its combustion engines, into the age of electrification. However, this effort comes at a delicate time for the auto industry. The transition to electric vehicles, which should have quickly ushered in an era of climate-friendly transportation, has been slowed by costly investments and slowing global demand. Oth...

Political changes in France after early elections

Related media - Latest news After Sunday's snap legislative elections in France, the nation faces a deadlocked parliament and significant political uncertainty. No major political faction, left, center or right, has won an outright majority. The left-wing New Popular Front emerged as the leading group with 178 seats. President Emmanuel Macron's centrist coalition followed with 150 seats, while Marine Le Pen's anti-immigration Rassemblement National party and its allies secured 142 seats. Contrary to expectations, the National Rally did not win a clear victory. A strategic move by centrists and leftists to form a "republican front" against the National Rally in the second round of voting proved effective. Candidates across France withdrew from three-way races to consolidate votes agai...

Viktor Orban visits Xi Jinping in China after meeting with Putin in Moscow

Related media - Breaking news Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán visited Chinese leader Xi Jinping in Beijing on Monday, following his recent talks with Russian President Vladimir V. Putin in Moscow. China's state-run news agency, Xinhua, announced Orban's visit, saying Xi would engage in "in-depth discussions on issues of mutual concern" with him. The two leaders last met two months ago, when Xi visited Budapest to boost Chinese influence in Europe. Chinese state television reported that the meeting took place at the Diaooyutai State Guesthouse, but gave no further details. The meeting offers Xi and Orban, who often diverges from the European Union on Ukraine and other issues, a platform to encourage the EU to distance itself from Washington. Hungary recently began its six-month ...

Gilead Shot Provides Full Protection From HIV in Study of Young African Women

Related media - Breaking news It can take years for generic drugmakers to be ready to produce a drug, and they need to have a sense of the potential market to commit to investing in production. So in the meantime, Gilead will aim to ship "sufficient volumes" of lenacapavir to low-income countries as soon as it gets regulatory approval, he said. Lenacapavir and the two pills studied are all known as pre-exposure prophylaxis drugs, or PrEP. Another effective injectable PrEP drug is available in some African countries, but its introduction has been plagued by access issues. Long-acting cabotegravir, which is injected every two months, has also shown excellent results in clinical trials in Africa. It is made by ViiV Healthcare, majority-owned by pharmaceutical giant GSK; the com...
