Bringing back mask mandate is a good idea’: doctor on Delta variant

·Anchor

The World Health Organization’s decision to encourage those who are fully vaccinated to wear masks as a result of the highly transmissible Delta variant is "a good idea," according to University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix’s Dr. Shad Marvasti.

“We don’t want to wait until after the fact and get caught with this thing already ahead of us when we know that masks work,” Marvasti told Yahoo Finance Live. “To put this in context, the Alpha variant, which originated out of the UK, was about 50% more infectious and transmissible. The Delta variant is 60% more infectious than that.”

The Delta variant, which was first identified in India, has now spread to more than 80 countries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) officials warn it will likely become the dominant strain in the U.S. in a matter of weeks as infections attributable to the highly contagious variant spread rapidly nationwide. COVID-19 cases caused by the Delta variant currently account for about one-fifth of new coronavirus infections in the U.S., according to the CDC.

PERTH, AUSTRALIA - JUNE 29: Members of the public are seen wearing face masks in the CBD during Lockdown on June 29, 2021 in Perth, Australia. Lockdown restrictions have come into effect across the Perth and Peel regions for the next four days, following the confirmation of new community COVID-19 cases linked to the highly contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus. From midnight, residents in the Perth and Peel regions are only permitted to leave their homes for essential reasons, including purchasing essential goods, receiving medical care, or caring for the vulnerable. People may leave home to get vaccinated or to exercise within a 5-kilometre radius of their home. Weddings are restricted to five people, funerals to 10 people while gyms, beauty and hair salons, casinos and nightclubs must close. (Photo by Matt Jelonek/Getty Images)

“The CDC needs to act quickly, without waiting, to follow the WHO guidelines and ask everyone to put the masks back on so we can stay open, protect folks, and keep the economy going,” Marvasti said. “We’re already seeing preliminary numbers out of Israel where fully vaccinated people are getting sick.”

Preliminary findings by Israeli health officials found that about half of adults infected by the Delta variant in the country were fully vaccinated, the Wall Street Journal reported, and as it stands now, the Delta variant is likely causing about 90% of new infections in Israel.

Outbreaks of infections largely driven by the Delta variant have prompted governments from around the world to reimpose coronavirus-related restrictions. South Africa is imposing at least two weeks of lockdowns while about 10 million Australians are also under lockdown. Here in the U.S., Los Angeles County officials are urging all residents to wear masks in public indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status.

“We have gotten into this false sense of security thinking it's okay to take off masks,” warned Marvasti. “The best thing to do is to start putting the masks back on to prevent another surge from happening, and if you’re unvaccinated, now is the time to get vaccinated before this Delta variant comes for you.”

Feds indict rapper Pooh Shiesty, use Instagram pics of cash, car as evidence in robbery case

The feds have indicted rapper Pooh Shiesty over the alleged shooting and robbery of two men outside a Bay Harbor Islands hotel.

The rapper, whose real name is Lontrell Williams, is now in federal custody and made his first Miami federal court appearance on Tuesday afternoon. The charges: discharging a firearm during a violent crime, conspiracy and robbery under a law regulating commerce.

Williams, 21, had been charged and freed on bond in Miami-Dade state court over the same incident. But earlier this month, he was put back in jail on a separate charge over the alleged shooting of a security guard at the King of Diamonds strip club on Memorial Day.

“We have been in communication with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and we believe they have a federal detainer on him and are likely to file federal charges,” his defense attorney, Saam Zangeneh, told the Herald earlier this month. “That doesn’t change our position as to his 100 percent innocence, in both state and federal matters.”

Williams will be held in federal custody until a detention hearing on July 6.

In the federal case, Williams is charged along with two other men, Bobby Brown and Jayden Darosa.

According to a criminal complaint, the trio in October arranged to buy some marijuana and “high-end athletic sneakers” from two men at the Landon Hotel in Bay Harbor Islands. Williams showed up in a rented McLaren exotic car, Darosa in a black Mercedes Maybach.

During the deal, Williams and Brown shot the two men, one in the hip, the other in the rear end, according to the complaint. The robbery was captured on video surveillance, according to the criminal complaint by Miami-Dade Detective Elio Garcia, who is part of a FBI violent crimes task force.

Williams used a Draco subcompact machine gun, and “never paid either victim for the shoes or marijuana,” the complaint said.

Social media, the feds say, was critical in building the case.

Investigators also found a Louis Vuitton bag that fell out of the McLaren — it contained $40,912 dollars in cash. Just days before the robbery, the feds said, his Instagram featured photos of himself with “several long rifles and plethora of $100.00 bills.”

One of the bills in the bag had the same serial number as the one depicted on Instagram. His Instagram account also featured him posing with what appeared to be the the same green McLaren.

Despite victim recanting, Pooh Shiesty to stay jailed — and now he’s facing federal charges

Darosa’s Instagram account also showed him wielding the same Draco used by Williams, according to the complaint.

Williams, who hails from Memphis, Tennessee, is part of rapper Gucci Mane’s 1017 Records label and also has a hit song called “Back in Blood.” Williams is still facing an aggravated battery charged in the strip club shooting; the victim in the case is alleged to have recanted, although prosecutors have said they are investi

disaster

 

First off......my deepest sympathies to all those who are involved or victims of this tragic incident in surfside miami florida ........i sincerely hope that at the end of the day ....they do not attempt to re build on the mass grave yard ......and make it into a memorial park  for those who died  needlessly in this  disaster........

I think in between all of this  there will be  findings  of  negligence  somehow..... A building simply does not collapse  like this .......it is   sad .....tragic and  unnecessary ........i hope these people  find   peace and  semblance  at the end of this  tragedy........


A woman standing on her balcony was on the phone to her husband as the Miami condo began to collapse and described the unfolding disaster before the line went dead

A woman stood on the balcony of her fourth-floor apartment as the Florida condominium collapsedtold her husband on the phone that she could see the pool "caving in" seconds before the line went dead, Sky News reported.

Cassie Straton was speaking to her husband, Michael, from their balcony on the south side of the Champlain Towers when she noticed the building started shaking in the early hours of Thursday, her older sister Ashely Dean said.

"Suddenly she says, 'honey, the pool is caving in. The pool is sinking to the ground,'" Dean said, according to Sky News.

"He said, 'what are you talking about?' And she says, 'the ground is shaking, everything's shaking' and then she screamed a blood-curdling scream and the line went dead," Dean added.

Straton is among the 159 apartment residents who are still unaccounted for as of Saturday, the BBC reported.

The official death toll currently stands at four people.

"We've never been able to see her again because she's in there. She's trapped in there," Dean told Sky News. "I have to be realistic; my baby is gone, my baby sister is gone."

Dean said that her sister had reportedly been complaining about the state of the apartment for months.

"My sister told me about all kinds of water leaks and people on her roof with heavy equipment," she said.

The condo was the subject of a 2015 maintenance suit by resident Matilde Fainstein, who said the building's owners "failed to repair or negligently repaired the common elements and the outside walls of the building," according to court documents seen by Insider.

It's unclear if the issues indicated there affected the collapse.

‘Redneck Rave’ Descends Into Throat Slashing, Impalements, and Mass Arrests

A massive country music festival in Kentucky this past weekend started off on rocky footing: Police found meth, marijuana, and an open bottle of alcohol in the first vehicle they stopped at a traffic checkpoint. One of the people in the car had two active warrants out for their arrest.

“We were like, ‘Well, this doesn’t bode well for the weekend,’” Edmonson County Sheriff Shane Doyle told the Lexington Herald-Leader.

Police said that by the end of the five-day bash, dubbed the “Redneck Rave,” one man had been impaled, one woman had been strangled to the point of unconsciousness, and one throat had been slit. In all, Edmonson authorities arrested 14 people, and charged four dozen people from five states.

The event, organized by country rapper Justin Time, took place in Blue Holler Offroad Park and drew a crowd of tens of thousands, doubling the population of the unincorporated town of Ollie, which is so small it does not have a stoplight. Redneck Rave promoters bragged that they had sold more than 20,000 tickets. The lengthy getdown, advertised as the “biggest country party you’ll ever go to,” boasted a demolition derby, goldfish racing, and a full-scale football game as well as a series of concerts.

The details of the Redneck Rave’s incidents are grisly. One person slit a friend’s throat and remains at large, a 29-year-old man had allegedly strangled a woman until she passed out, one person lost the better part of a finger, and another was impaled when he drove a side-by-side over a 2-3 inch log that broke through the bottom of the recreational vehicle. Paramedics left the log inside him as they airlifted him to a hospital.

Justin Time, whose legal name is Justin Stowers, wrote on Facebook, “This was the biggest event we’ve ever done and with as many people and random things that popped up unexpectedly I feel like we all handled it very well.”

Doyle told the Herald-Leader last year’s Redneck Raves—there were two—“overwhelmed” his staff. He ordered all his deputies to work mandatory overtime this year and requested assistance from the Kentucky State Police. At least one person died at the event last year. Another Redneck Rave is scheduled for October of this year.

“There were so many intoxicated people, we just decided, ‘If dispatch sends an ambulance in, we’re sending a deputy in with them,’” said Doyle.

Six of the festival-goers face felony charges, and the sheriff’s office filed roughly 30 charges stemming from drug and alcohol violations.

'We're going to hell': 'Fear Factor' producers talk Joe Rogan and other secrets of the grossest reality show ever

David Hurwitz remembers the exact moment he knew his name would be enshrined in the annals of television notoriety. The year was 2001, and he and his creative collaborator, Matt Kunitz, were watching a woman drink worms out of a martini glass on the set of their NBC reality show Fear Factor. “I think the glass had, like, three earthworms and a silkworm in it,” the producer tells Yahoo Entertainment now. “We watched her try to drink them, and then her gag reflex kicked in. We looked at each other and went, ‘We’re going to hell.’”

Where the duo actually went was to the top of the Nielsen charts. When Fear Factor — hosted by podcast king Joe Rogan — premiered on June 11, 2001, the series was an instant success story, giving NBC a reality franchise that could compete with hits like Survivor and Big Brother on CBS. "Everyone was saying, ‘All the networks are looking for the next Survivor,” recalls Kunitz, who had gotten his start working on such pioneering MTV reality fare as The Real World and the inaugural Real World/Road Rules Challenge.

"At the time, it was really just Survivor and Big Brother,” agrees Hurwitz, whose early reality credits included The Man Show and Before They Were Stars. "There was no such thing at NBC
