    Persistent use of methamphetamine is the single biggest risk factor for HIV seroconversion among gay and bisexual men, according to a new study published in the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndromes. Using subjects from across the U.S., including Puerto Rico and Guam, researchers found that over 12 months of follow-up, 14% of study participants reported using meth, and 2.5% tested positive for HIV (115 new infections). More than a third of study participants (36%) seroconverting for HIV were persistent users of methamphetamine.

    The media are still feeling the impact of an executive order signed in 1917 that created ‘the nation’s first ministry of information’.. When the United States declared war on Germany 100 years ago, the impact on the news business was swift and dramatic. In its crusade to “make the world safe for democracy,” the Wilson administration took immediate steps at home to curtail one of the pillars of democracy – press freedom – by implementing a plan to control, manipulate and censor all news coverage, on a scale never seen in U.S. history. Following the lead of the Germans and...

    Ever win a bet with a friend and not been able to collect? Everyone knows a guy who owes you money but makes you feel like a jerk whenever you bring it up. Sooner or later, you just write it off and stop mentioning it. He lost the bet, but won in the long run. That’s the celebrities who promised to leave the country if Donald Trump won in 2016. The 2020 election is our chance to collect. Maybe they didn’t get the message last time, maybe they thought we were joking? We weren’t joking. Many people, me among them,...

    The Hasidic synagogue barred from holding a public wedding in Brooklyn over fears it would attract 10,000 people says the “unwarranted attacks” forced it to scrap the planned celebration to avoid a “paparazzi” event. The Congregation Yetev Lev D’Satmar was served an order Friday night from New York state barring Monday’s planned public wedding in Williamsburg of a grandson of its grand rabbi, Zalman Leib Teitelbaum. But the synagogue hit out at the order, saying it had taken special steps to ensure the wedding complied with coronavirus guidelines but “nobody verified our plans before attacking us.” “The unwarranted attacks on...

    Follow the science. Governor Cuomo, the media, and his supporters have claimed that his false accusation that the segregation of particular areas as hot zones, some appearing to target Orthodox Jews, was based on the work of health experts and statistics. But discovery is a wonderful thing. Even when judges refuse to do the right thing, the process provides invaluable insights into a deeply corrupt system. The Brooklyn Catholic Diocese sued Cuomo and produced some incredible admissions, via OJPAC. "NYGovCuomo’s Howard Zucker admits in a brief in the Brooklyn Catholic Diocese case that “there is no specific percentage threshold to...

    On Wednesday, three Orthodox Jewish congregations in Rockland County, N.Y., sued Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) for issuing a “blatantly anti-Semitic” coronavirus order restricting religious services in Jewish areas, just before three sequential Jewish holy days. Cuomo falsely blamed the Orthodox Jewish community for a surge in COVID-19 cases in New York, referring to the surge as “a predominantly ultra-orthodox cluster,” and he admitted the lockdowns were based on “fear” rather than science. According to the lawsuit, Cuomo’s October 6 executive order “is blatantly anti-Semitic, creating religious-observance based color coded ‘hot-spot’ zones directed towards particular Jewish communities.” The order “not only...

    This is the first time in my life I have lived in a place where the polls are not open on election day. Thanks to the diktat of Obergruppenführer Murphy here in New Jersey, we are being forced to "vote by mail" in this election. My wife and I did just that today. Only, we didn't put our ballots in the mail. I wanted to share with you all what we did instead, and what the procedure is. After voting my ballot, putting it in the yellow envelope, signing, sealing, etc., we took our ballots directly to the Camden County...

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy slammed President Trump for holding a high-dollar fundraiser in the state less than one day before he tested positive for COVID-19, accusing the president of needlessly exposing attendees to the virus. “The knowledge that they had before they left for New Jersey — that there was exposure to a COVID-positive individual — that trip was completely unacceptable, completely reckless and completely uncalled for,” Murphy, a Democrat, said during a press conference on Monday. “We don’t need folks coming in, knowingly exposed to a COVID-positive individual, and then be in the midst of a couple of...

    DENMARK (WGME) -- Two people from New Jersey have been issued a summons, after police say they stole pro-Trump signs from a home in Denmark. Video allegedly shows 25-year-old Christopher Svetik and 24-year-old Naomi Touchstone stealing three signs, including two Trump signs and one thin blue line flag sign, from a home on Wabunaki Road late Thursday night. The owner of those signs says nothing like this has happened to him before. “When I first saw the video, I was shocked, because in all the years we've been here, we've never had any incidents like that,” Denmark resident Chuck Flahive...
