    Male Surgeons Are More Likely To Kill Female Patients

    Polling data has revealed that women who are operated on by a male surgeon are 32% more likely to die from the surgery and 15% more likely to suffer complications or unintended outcomes from the surgery. Jayar Jackson, Adrienne Lawrence, and Ben Gleib discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. https://youtube.com/theyoungturks/live

    "Women who are operated on by a male surgeon are much more likely to die, experience complications and be readmitted to hospital than when a woman performs the procedure, research reveals.

    Women are 15% more liable to suffer a bad outcome, and 32% more likely to die, when a man rather than a woman carries out the surgery, according to a study of 1.3 million patients.

    The findings have sparked a debate about the fact that surgery in the UK remains a hugely male-dominated area of medicine and claims that “implicit sex biases” among male surgeons may help explain why women are at such greater risk when they have an operation."

    These Cats Are OBSESSED With Guarding Fancy Blender

    A couple who recently purchased a new high-tech Vitamix blender has yet to use the new appliance after their three cats refuse to move from atop the unopened box, holding the Vitamix hostage for almost a month now. They just don't have the heart to open that box just yet. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. https://youtube.com/theyoungturks/live

    Read more HERE: https://www.washingtonpost.com/home/2022/01/08/cats-took-vitamix-hostage/

    "On Black Friday, Jessica and Nikii Gerson-Neeves bought a blender. It was a Vitamix blender, a professional-grade splurge, and the couple was looking forward to a winter of smoothies and soups.

    It arrived on Dec. 16 at their home on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Jessica put the hefty box down on the floor in the kitchen, just for a second. Her 4-year-old tuxedo cat, Max, otherwise known as the “sentient soccer ball,” jumped up on the box. Jessica thought it was funny and snapped a photo.

    Then Max’s 13-year-old feline siblings, George: Destroyer of Worlds (“sentient potato”) and Lando Calrissian (“the questionably sentient dust bunny,”), demanded their turn on the knee-high box."

    "A U.S. labor official granted a request by Arizona workers at Starbucks Corp. to hold an election that could expand the new unionized foothold at the retail coffee chain, rejecting the company’s arguments against holding store-by-store votes.

    In a Friday ruling, the National Labor Relations Board’s regional director ordered that ballots be mailed out Jan. 14 to employees at a store in Mesa, Arizona, who will have until Jan. 28th to return them."

    EXPOSED: Cops Forge DNA Reports To Coerce Confessions

    Virginia Beach cops have allegedly been using forged DNA documents in order to coerce suspects into confessing or further cooperation during interrogations. Jayar Jackson, Adrienne Lawrence, and Ben Gleib discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. https://youtube.com/theyoungturks/live

    Read more HERE:

    "Cops in Virginia Beach have been accused of forging documents that tied suspects' DNA to a crime in an effort to coerce confessions or cooperation from people under interrogation.

    The “fake certificates of analysis” purporting to be from a state forensic agency were used on at least five occasions, Virginia Attorney General Mark R. Herring’s Office of Civil Rights revealed Wednesday. The certificates were often emblazoned with a seal, letterhead, or contact information, and two included the signature of a fake Virginia Department of Forensic Science employee. One forged document was even presented in court, though that case wasn’t elaborated upon."

    What To Know About Cannabis & COVID Prevention

    A scientific research paper from Oregon State University has gone viral online by presenting data that suggests compounds found in cannabis “prevented entry” of the coronavirus into isolated human cells. While this doesn’t mean smoking cannabis prevents COVID infections, it does show promise for future, more accessible treatments or preventatives. Jayar Jackson, Adrienne Lawrence, and Ben Gleib discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. https://youtube.com/theyoungturks/live

    Read more HERE: https://www.forbes.com/sites/chrisroberts/2022/01/13/no-sorry-smoking-marijuana-does-not-protect-you-from-covid-19/?sh=3199df524eee

    "Scientific papers don’t usually go viral, but this week, a team of researchers from Oregon State University published a study that contained the magic formula to blow up the internet: cannabis and Covid-19.

    According to research published Monday in the Journal of Natural Products (and subsequently rewritten in almost every news outlet on Earth) two compounds found in hemp plants—specifically, acids that become active cannabinoids only after heat is applied—“prevented entry” of the novel coronavirus that causes Covid-19 into isolated human cells.

    This could mean that certain cannabis-derived preparations, given in the right amount, might help people fight off Covid-19. Which is exciting stuff!

    What this research does not mean is that smoking cannabis helps protect you from the coronavirus, or that “weed stops Covid” (at least in the practical sense), or that the reason why someone got sick with Covid while someone else didn’t had anything to do with cannabis."

    WATCH: Joe Rogan Gets DUNKED ON During His Own Show

    Podcast mogul and staunch anti-vaxxer Joe Rogan got a healthy dose of public humiliation after one of his many anti-vax arguments was debunked live by guest Josh Zepps. Better yet, 270 scientists wrote an open letter to Spotify urging the company to address the COVID misinformation being promoted on Rogan’s show. Jayar Jackson, Adrienne Lawrence, and Ben Gleib discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. https://youtube.com/theyoungturks/live

    "Joe Rogan has admitted he was made to “look dumb” by ABC broadcaster Josh Zepps during a debate about the effects of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine.

    Rogan has come under fire for the past two years for inviting several vaccine skeptics onto his show, where he allows them to air unsubstantiated or dis-proven theories about Covid-19. This week, an open letter signed by 270 scientists demanded that Spotify address the misinformation shared on Rogan’s show. However, in this week’s episode, Rogan was left somewhat speechless after Zepps was able to point out he was incorrect in his claims about the effects of the coronavirus vaccine on children and young people."
