A study of more than 600,000 children in Denmark has found that the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella does not increase a child’s risk of developing autism, adding to a substantial body of evidence that refutes some parents’ fears about a possible connection.

The new study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, is one of the largest of its kind, according to NPR’s Rob Stein. Using data from population registries, researchers looked at 657,461 children born in Denmark between 1999 and 2010; the children were followed from the age of one until August 2013. Ninety-five percent of the young study subjects were vaccinated, reports Lisa Rapaport of Reuters. Of the children involved in the study, 6,517 were diagnosed with autism.

But the researchers did not find any increased risk of autism in children who received the MMR vaccine, compared to those who did not. Crucially, the study authors also looked at subgroups of children considered susceptible to the disorder due to several risk factors, like having siblings with autism and being born prematurely. “A concern about observational studies is that they do not often take into account the possibility of MMR vaccination triggering autism in susceptible subgroups of children,” the study authors acknowledge. But even among these subgroups, the researchers did not observe any connection between MMR vaccination and autism risk.

A strict mother in China reportedly abandoned her 12-year-old son in the middle of a busy street in Luoyang City after he only managed to score 81 percent on an exam, which apparently wasn’t good enough.

Police officers in Luoyang’s Gucheng district found the boy wandering the streets close to where his mother dropped him off before driving away. They had been alerted by passers-by who saw the woman stopping her car in the area, pulling the boy out and then scolding and hitting him before leaving him there by himself. CCTV footage shows the officers approaching the disoriented child in an attempt to find out what happened. They later told local reporters that the boy had been abandoned for not achieving the 95 percent score that his mother expected on a recent exam.

“Was it your mother who beat you?” one police officer can be heard asking the boy, surnamed Yang, in the police car, to which the 12-year-old answers “Yes, I didn’t do well in my exam”.

After interviewing eye-witnesses and identifying the woman who abandoned the boy by her car’s license plate number, officers took the boy to the station and contacted the woman to come pick him up. Shockingly, the mother told police that she did not want him back, and that she would not come to get him even if they threatened to charge her.

‘I don’t want him anymore. You can do whatever you want with him. You can even charge me,” the strict mother said during the phone call.

According to the police report, the 12-year-old boy spent about an hour at the station before being picked up by an uncle. It is unclear if he was taken back by his mother, or if the police plan to charge her with anything.

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s unfavorable rating has spiked after just months in Congress, with most of the public viewing her negatively rather than favorably, a new poll shows.

A Gallup poll released Friday shows that Ocasio-Cortez's unfavorable rating has risen by 15 points since last September, when she had yet to win the general election, increasing from 26 percent to 41 percent of the American adults polled.

She has also managed to increase her favorability rating, but only by 7 points. About 31 percent of surveyed people view her favorably, compared to 24 percent in September.

Since September, Ocasio-Cortez became more widely recognized across the country, with half of the respondents saying they have never heard of her before. Now only a fifth of surveyed people says they aren’t familiar with the self-described Democratic socialist.

The poll notes that Ocasio-Cortez’s name recognition is growing compared to that of other politicians at the same point in their careers in Congress. More surveyed people know the New York Democrat than they knew Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz as freshmen.

Nearly three-quarters of Republican respondents say they view her negatively, with only 5 percent having a positive view. Among the Democrats, 56 percent of respondents had a favorable view of Ocasio-Cortez, compared to only 15 percent of the Democrats polled who don’t support her.

She’s also favored by adults 18 to 34, people of color and women. Yet she’s facing a favorability deficit among men (-24), whites (-24), and adults 55 or older (-22).

Among self-described independents, she has a negative net rating of 5 percent .

Correction: it is a proposal to let rich people keep their money while they bleed the middle and lower class dry through rent hikes, stagnating wages, gutting benefits and retirement savings, and not paying anything remotely resembling their fair share of taxes on income they wouldn't have if it weren't for the working class they drain.

What's the story? Modern slaves?

>Erdogan, while campaigning for local elections, presented the attack as part of an assault on Turkey and Islam and warned anti-Muslim Australians would be "sent back in coffins" like their grandfathers at Gallipoli - a blood-drenched WWI battle.

>More than 8,000 Australians died fighting Turkish forces at Gallipoli, which has a prominent place in Australia's collective memory.

>Morrison said Australians travelling to Turkey should exercise common sense and cautioned that travel advice for Turkey was under review.

In the wake of the Christchurch shooting, New Zealand began restricting access to several websites for New Zealand citizens. The ban targeted less popular websites that were hosting footage of the attack without incentive or resources to remove the content as it appeared.

Twenty hours ago, Telstra also began pulling down sites for general Australian access. These now include several Chan-forums, Live-Leak, and 0 Hedge. Vodafone and Optus are two other major providers that have since restricted access to these sites as well. At this time, iiNet has not restricted consumer access to websites.

A New Zealand teenager is also facing court charges over distributing footage of the attack online. The teenager, whose name was suppressed by the judge, was also charged with publishing a photograph of the mosque with the message "target acquired". He faces a maximum of 14 years in prison for each charge, prosecutors said.
A judge did not grant him bail and he is due back in court on April 8.

>A 19-year-old woman involved in a traffic stop committed suicide after shooting herself through the mouth while her hands were cuffed behind her back, Virginia police said.Sarah Wilson and her boyfriend were arrested during a stop in Chesapeake in July 2018 after cops allegedly found drugs in the 1996 Lexus the couple were driving. Police said they handcuffed Wilson and, while attempting to apprehend her boyfriend, 27-year-old Holden Medlin, he became combative and ran away from the scene.

>Cops then reportedly left Wilson handcuffed with her hands behind her back as they ran to catch Medlin. While unattended, police say, she was able to grab a weapon out of the Lexus, "contorted" her body and shot herself through the mouth. An internal investigation was launched after her death, which has since been concluded, though police have declined to comment on its outcome.

I'm convinced that circumcision supporters are just desperately trying to cope with the fact that they were cucked out of being allowed to decide what THEIR OWN DICK looks like. It's really sad, when you think about it, being denied such a basic right as a man before you're even able to wipe your own ass. It's like castrating boys when they're young and then they grow up and defend it like "Well the planet has too many people anyway, I'm GLAD I'll never be able to have children, I don't even have to wear a condom!" It's not about dick cheese or jews, it's about being allowed to CHOOSE whether the most primal, most basic representation of your entire life gets altered or not, and people are being denied that. If you grow up and want your foreskin cut off, that's awesome, go for it, more power to you, you're a man and it's YOUR penis and YOUR choice. Lopping that shit off of babies is some kind of cruel caste-society type shit.

Trump retweeted an article about the possible involvement of National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU) in discrediting his election headquarters during the presidential elections in the USA in 2016.

A high-ranking member in the Verkohvna Rada of Ukraine is accusing the head of the country’s anti-corruption bureau of leaking information about associates of Donald Trump to the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016.

In the link that Trump distributed, there is an audio recording of a person with a voice similar to NABU chief Artem Sytnik, who claims that he "helped Hilary".

Manafort, one of the important people in the Trump campaign, was in the middle of the scandal. Because of so-called black bookkeeping of the Party of Regions, it became known that he was allegedly financed by representatives of ukrainian president.
