‘Fake news abounds’: ABC News suspends reporter after he FUMES over network handling Trump & corporate sell-out in new LEAK

ABC news has suspended veteran correspondent David Wright, after he admitted to an undercover cameraman that “fake news abounds” at the network, and that ABC’s reporters “don’t give [Trump] credit for what things he does do.”

Wright’s suspension came after conservative watchdog group Project Veritas released video footage of Wright complaining about the network to an undercover cameraman.

“David Wright has been suspended, and to avoid any possible appearance of bias, he will be reassigned away from political coverage when he returns,” ABC News said in a statement released on Wednesday. The network actually suspended Wright on Tuesday, even before Project Veritas’ video aired.

Buy now, pay later 'growing fast' amid debt fears

Buy now, pay later services for online shoppers are growing at 39% a year, a report says, despite worries that young consumers are sleepwalking into debt.

Operators such as Klarna and Afterpay allow customers to delay payment or buy through interest-free instalments.

Convenience and the ease to make snap purchases are behind their popularity, according to the report by payment processors Worldpay.

But consumer groups say many young people are ignoring the debt risks.

Confessions of a Recovering Neocon

I hate to admit it but just a few short years ago I was a Neocon, and I’m not proud of it. Like so many others today I was bewitched by what I thought at the time was patriotism. I genuinely believed that if we could just elect some good, God Fearing Republicans all would be well.

Vitamin D 'triggers and arms' the immune system

The researchers found that the T cells rely on vitamin D in order activate and they would remain dormant, ‘naïve’ to the possibility of threat if vitamin D is lacking in the blood.

Professor Carsten Geisler from the Department of International Health, Immunology and Microbiology, said: "When a T cell is exposed to a foreign pathogen, it extends a signalling device or ‘antenna’ known as a vitamin D receptor, with which it searches for vitamin D.

"This means that the T cell must have vitamin D or activation of the cell will cease. If the T cells cannot find enough vitamin D in the blood, they won’t even begin to mobilise.”

I supplement with 5,000ui vitamin D daily and I never get colds or flus. I am wondering if some viral infections are a symptom of vitamin deficiency.

Vitamin D crucial to activating immune defenses

Scientists have found that vitamin D is crucial to activating our immune defenses and that without sufficient intake of the vitamin - the killer cells of the immune system -- T cells -- will not be able to react to and fight off serious infections in the body. The research team found that T cells first search for vitamin D in order to activate and if they cannot find enough of it will not complete the activation process.

Low Vitamin D Levels Associated with Colds and Flu

Using data from almost 19,000 people, the researchers examined the relationship between blood serum levels of 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D)—a recognized indicator of the body’s vitamin D stores—and respiratory tract infections like colds and flus. Their analysis adjusted for other factors, such as the season of the year, age, body mass index and smoking history. Their work was funded by NIH’s National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI).

The team reported in the February 23, 2009, issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine that 24% of the participants with the lowest levels of 25[OH]D in their serum (less than 10ng/mL) had recent upper respiratory tract infections. In contrast, only 17% of those with the highest levels in their serum (greater than 30ng/mL) had recent infections. Of those with serum levels in between, 20% reported recent upper respiratory tract infections. These associations held regardless of the season.
