We need to talk about the mass migration wave at the US border. I don't mean the wave coming in, I mean the one going out. Yes, a lot of people are attempting to enter the United States, but it turns out that the total number of undocumented immigrants in the country has remained pretty stable (even if our discourse about the topic hasn't). This is depart you don't hear as much about. NYT (Gift Article): Many Undocumented Immigrants Are Departing After Decades in the U.S. "Departures have recently accelerated, beginning with crackdowns on immigrants under the Trump administration and continuing under President Biden as many older people decide they have realized their original goals for immigrating and can afford to trade the often-grueling work available to undocumented workers for a slower pace in their home country."
HAVANA BONE TO PICK
After investigating 1,500 cases in nearly one hundred countries, US intelligence reports that there's no sign that adversaries are behind Havana syndrome. "Many of those cases, officials said, have been linked to other potential explanations aside from a foreign campaign: medical illnesses, malfunctioning air conditioning and ventilation systems, or electromagnetic waves coming from benign devices like a computer mouse." When you hear people describe their debilitating and long-lasting symptoms, it's pretty hard to believe they were the result of a rogue computer mouse. I recently recommended the Vice podcast, Havana Syndrome. It gives a good overview of what we know so far and will leave you wondering about today's finding.
"I have colleagues who say cryptic things like, 'The weather's really nice in New Mexico right now. You should go check it out.' Or, 'I've heard traveling to Colorado is really nice this time of year.' ... Patients have to be well-educated enough to pick up on these hints, do their own research, and figure out what to do next."

STROKE OF GENIUS
There's a new-ish procedure that is creating much better outcomes for stroke patients. It turns out developing that technique is the easy part. NYT Mag (Gift Article): This Revolutionary Stroke Treatment Will Save Millions of Lives. Eventually. "The challenge is that this medical innovation isn't as deployable as a new pill or device. It can't be manufactured by the thousands, packed into shipping containers and distributed to every hospital whose administrator clicks Add to Cart. For a qualified specialist, the extraction of the clot itself can be fairly straightforward — but getting the patient to the table in time is a highly complex process, a series of steps requiring layers of training and a rethinking of the protocols that move people around within the medical system. The new 'miracle treatment' is the easy part. Bringing it to the people who need it, around the world? Achieving that will be miraculous."
Port in a Storm: "The danger in the streets complicates everything: When gangsters with bullet wounds show up at the gates, doctors ask them to check their automatic weapons at the door as if they were coats. Doctors cannot return safely to homes in areas controlled by rival gangs and must live in hospital dormitories. Patients who are too scared to seek basic care due to the violence arrive in increasingly dire condition." It's hard enough to provide emergency medical care under the best of conditions. Try doing it in the middle the middle of Port-au-Prince's gang wars. AP: In heart of Haiti's gang war, one hospital stands its ground.
+ Greek Rail Disaster: "At least 43 people have been killed after a passenger train and freight train collided in Greece, in one of the country's worst rail accidents. Greek PM Kyriakos Mitsotakis has said in an address to the nation that it appears the accident was due to 'tragic human error." The latest from BBC.
+ Leak Detector: "The FBI has for quite some time now assessed that the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident." Christopher Wray is the latest in the intel community to suggest a lab leak led to Covid.
+ This One Goes to 11: "Scientists largely from the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom looked at data from 196 studies, amounting to more than 30 million adult participants who were followed for 10 years on average." What did they find? That 11 minutes of daily exercise can have a huge impact on your health. (My beagles usually lie down in the middle of the sidewalk at minute 9, but I guess I can always jog in place.)
"Cooper says he checks email and does online searches for information to settle dinner table arguments. However, 'there are many things that I have not yet learned,' he said. 'I still don't know what TikTok is.'" Most 94-year-olds probably don't. But Martin Cooper is no ordinary nonagenarian. He's credited with inventing the cell phone. Whoops.

Entertainment blogging is a type of online content creation that focuses on providing readers with news, reviews, and commentary on various forms of entertainment, such as movies, music, television shows, and celebrity gossip. Entertainment blogging is a popular form of online media that has gained significant traction over the years, and it has become an essential part of the entertainment industry.
In this article, we will explore the world of entertainment blogging, its history, its impact, and its future.
History of Entertainment Blogging
Entertainment blogging began to gain popularity in the late 1990s and early 2000s, with the rise of blogging platforms like Blogger and WordPress. At that time, most entertainment news was only available in traditional media outlets, such as newspapers, magazines, and television shows.
However, with the emergence of the internet, bloggers saw an opportunity to provide a new type of entertainment news that was more accessible and up-to-date. Early entertainment bloggers were mostly enthusiasts who wrote about their favorite movies, music, and celebrities as a hobby.
As blogging became more popular, some bloggers started to monetize their sites through advertising and sponsorships, paving the way for a new generation of professional entertainment bloggers.
Impact of Entertainment Blogging
Entertainment blogging has had a significant impact on the entertainment industry. It has provided a new platform for artists and celebrities to promote their work, interact with fans, and build their brand. In some cases, bloggers have helped to launch the careers of new artists and actors by providing exposure to a wider audience.
Entertainment bloggers have also played a role in shaping public opinion about movies, music, and television shows. Their reviews and commentary can influence whether people choose to watch a particular film or listen to a new album. Bloggers have also been known to call out problematic behavior by celebrities and hold them accountable for their actions.
The rise of social media has further amplified the impact of entertainment blogging. Bloggers can now share their content across multiple platforms and engage with their followers in real-time. This has created a more intimate relationship between bloggers and their audience, making it easier for fans to discover new content and interact with their favorite bloggers.
Types of Entertainment Blogging
There are several types of entertainment blogging, each with its own focus and style.
Celebrity Gossip: This type of entertainment blogging focuses on the personal lives of celebrities, including their relationships, scandals, and fashion choices.
Movie Reviews: Bloggers who specialize in movie reviews provide in-depth analysis of films, including their plot, cinematography, and performances.
Music News: This type of blogging covers the latest music releases, concerts, and music industry news.
Television Reviews: Bloggers who write about television shows provide commentary on the latest episodes, analyze the plot, and provide their opinions on the show's quality.
Pop Culture Commentary: This type of entertainment blogging covers a wide range of topics related to popular culture, including fashion, trends, and social issues.
Tips for Starting an Entertainment Blog
If you're interested in starting an entertainment blog, here are some tips to help you get started:
Choose Your Niche: Before you start blogging, it's essential to decide on your niche. Determine which type of entertainment you're most passionate about and focus on that niche.
Create High-Quality Content: To build a successful blog, you need to create high-quality content that provides value to your readers. Focus on providing unique insights and opinions that aren't available elsewhere.
Be Consistent: Consistency is key when it comes to blogging. Develop a schedule and stick to it. This will help you build a loyal audience and increase your traffic over time.
News is a term that refers to current events and happenings that are of interest to the public. It can include stories about politics, entertainment, science, technology, and more. The news is typically delivered through various media, including newspapers, television, radio, and the internet.
One of the key purposes of news is to inform the public about events that are happening locally, nationally, and internationally. It is important for people to stay informed about what is going on in the world around them so that they can make informed decisions and participate in their communities. News can also help people understand the causes and effects of events and how they may be impacted by them.
Another purpose of news is to hold those in power accountable for their actions. Journalists investigate and report on stories that uncover wrongdoing or corruption in government, businesses, or other organizations. This can help prevent abuses of power and ensure that those responsible are held accountable for their actions.
News can also serve as a watchdog for society by highlighting issues that may not otherwise receive attention. For example, investigative journalism can uncover social injustices or environmental problems that may be overlooked by mainstream media. This type of reporting can raise public awareness and encourage action to address these issues.
In addition to providing information and holding those in power accountable, news can also help to shape public opinion. The way in which stories are reported can influence how people think about issues and events. For example, the way in which a news outlet chooses to frame a story can influence whether readers or viewers are sympathetic to a particular viewpoint.
News can also be used as a tool for propaganda. Governments or organizations may use news outlets to spread their own messages or influence public opinion in their favor. This can be done by selectively reporting certain facts or by presenting information in a biased or misleading way.
The role of news has changed dramatically over time with the advent of new technologies. With the rise of the internet, news can now be accessed 24/7 from anywhere in the world. This has led to the proliferation of fake news, where false information is presented as fact. This has created challenges for journalists and readers alike, as it can be difficult to distinguish between real and fake news.
In response to these challenges, many news organizations have implemented fact-checking processes to ensure the accuracy of their reporting. Additionally, many social media platforms have started to take steps to combat fake news by removing false information and promoting credible sources.
Despite these challenges, the importance of news in informing and shaping public opinion remains. The way in which news is reported and consumed may continue to evolve, but its fundamental role in keeping people informed and holding those in power accountable will remain crucial.
In conclusion, news is an essential component of modern society. It serves to inform the public, hold those in power accountable, and shape public opinion. While the way in which news is delivered and consumed may continue to change, its importance in promoting a well-informed and engaged citizenry remains paramount. It is up to journalists, news organizations, and individuals alike to ensure that news continues to serve its vital role in our democracy.
