Patient’s death is possibly the first in the U.S. related to vaping – AOL

August 25th, 2019

Health officials in Illinois believe a patient’s recent death may be the first vaping-related one in the U.S., according to the Associated Press

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) announced last Friday that an adult patient died after contracting a severe lung disease. The person’s name, age and date of death were not released, although the state was notified of the individual’s passing last Thursday, said Dr. Jennifer Layden, the agency’s chief medical officer.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also noted last week that at least 193 people across 22 states have suffered from respiratory illnesses after vaping. That number has risen dramatically from the 94 cases that the CDC recently said it would investigate. 

In Illinois alone, health officials said in a release that the number of people who contracted a vaping-related respiratory illness had doubled in the past week, from 11 to 22. 

“The severity of illness people are experiencing is alarming and we must get the word out that using e-cigarettes and vaping can be dangerous,” said IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike.

News of the patient’s death comes less than a week after a Utah man suffering from lipoid pneumonia was placed on life support. The man’s family said he and his wife had been vaping daily for two years before he suddenly fell sick. 

Around the same time, a Texas teenager also came forward to share his own near-death experience, after his lung collapsed from excessive vaping. A pediatric pulmonologist who treated the teen told a local station that his lungs were so damaged that they had formed scar tissue. 

Though the American Vaping Association, an advocacy organization, told the Associated Press that “tainted, black market THC products” are at fault for the growing number of illnesses, the CDC said it still needs to collect more information to determine whether there is a direct link between the illnesses and vaping. 

“Investigators haven’t identified any specific product or compound that is linked to all of the cases,” said CDC official Ileana Arias.

Kevin Feige and Tom Holland Address Spider-Man’s MCU Exit – Collider.com

August 25th, 2019

tom-holland-spider-man-far-from-home

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and Tom Holland addressed Spider-Man’s inevitable exit from the Marvel Cinematic Universe following a breakdown in negotiations between Disney and Sony Pictures earlier this week. The two studios reportedly failed to reach an agreement over producer credits on future Spider-Man movies.

Feige and Holland both sat down with Entertainment Weekly during appearances at Disney’s D23 Expo over the weekend to share their thoughts on the result of the Marvel-Sony rift: Spider-Man’s inevitable exit from the MCU and what that means both for Marvel and for Holland’s future playing the character. Both men were pragmatic about the still fresh, ostensibly tense situation. It was especially brutal to see Holland have to go on record with a comment mere days after the split and deal with the implications of the fallout happened considering he was part of the collateral damage.

Feige was diplomatic in his comments but it’s hard to feel anything other than a sense of finality about the split, unlike folks like Jon Favreau who are holding out for a reconciliation between the studios so Spidey can return.

“I’m feeling about Spider-Man gratitude and joy. We got to make five films within the MCU with Spider-Man: two standalone films and three with the Avengers. It was a dream that I never thought would happen. It was never meant to last forever. We knew there was a finite amount of time that we’d be able to do this, and we told the story we wanted to tell, and I’ll always be thankful for that.”

Holland reflected on his time working in the MCU, telling EW:

“Basically, we’ve made five great movies. It’s been five amazing years. I’ve had the time of my life. Who knows what the future holds? But all I know is that I’m going to continue playing Spider-Man and having the time of my life. It’s going to be so fun, however we choose to do it. The future for Spider-Man will be different, but it will be equally as awesome and amazing, and we’ll find new ways to make it even cooler.”

An additional, albeit sentimental, twist of the knife into the Spider-Man fandom’s heart when Holland addressed the crowd during the Onward presentation at D23. Towards the end of the presentation, Holland turned to the crowd and told them,

“It’s been a crazy week but I want you all to know from the bottom of my heart I love you 3000.”

Holland’s remark recalls a memorable line from his now second-to-last MCU movie, Avengers: Endgame, said by Tony Stark’s (Robert Downey Jr.) daughter, Morgan, as a way of showing how much she loves him. For fans, the line is no doubt deeply wrenching if only because it’s a reminder Holland has to put on a brave face as he faces a transition period he was likely not ready for.

There are currently no announced plans for Spider-Man’s future at Sony. It’s similarly unclear what Holland’s next professional move will be. Feige already has his sights set on the future, juggling all of the projects tied up in the MCU’s Phase 5 and the soon-to-be-launched streaming service Disney+.

Ad company rejects calls to remove anti-immigration billboard featuring Maxime Bernier – Globalnews.ca

August 25th, 2019

The owner of billboards currently showcasing ads that promote the People’s Party of Canada’s controversial stance on immigration says the material is staying up.

The ads, featuring a photo of party leader Maxime Bernier, the slogan “Say NO to mass immigration” and a call to vote for his party, started popping up across the country late last week. They were criticized nearly immediately as promoting what some called hateful, anti-immigrant rhetoric.

Story continues below

Petitions have since sprung up to call for the owner of the billboards, Pattison Outdoor Advertising, to take the ads down, arguing that they violate the company’s own code of conduct.

But the company issued a statement Sunday saying that if people have a problem, they should contact the advertiser, True North Strong & Free Advertising Corp.

Pattison’s statement suggested they had reviewed the ad content and did not find it violation of the Ad Standards of Canada (ASC) code or their own policies.

“We take a neutral position on ads that comply with the ASC code as we believe Canadians do not want us to be the judge or arbiter of what the public can or cannot see,” the company said in a statement circulated on their social media accounts.

“Should advertising elicit a public debate, we encourage Canadians to voice their opinions directly to the advertiser who placed the message as it is our policy that their contact information must be a legible part of the ad.”

The company said they will monitor the signs to ensure the contact information remains up, and if it doesn’t, they will remove the campaign.

In their statement, Pattison Outdoor included a link to the People’s Party of Canada platform, prefacing it by saying it “outlines that they would prioritize economic immigration over mass immigration.”

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

WATCH: People’s Party of Canada leader Bernier says Canadians demand lower immigration levels

The People’s Party platform pledges to dramatically slash the number of immigrants Canada accepts, arguing the Liberals and Conservatives use “mass immigration” as a political tool to buy votes. On top of cutting the number of people admitted, the party would cancel a program that allows people to sponsor their parents and grandparents, and strictly limit other family immigration programs, as well as accept far fewer refugees.

“The billboards are not the product of the People’s Party of Canada,” Johanne Mennie, the party’s executive director, said in a phone interview Friday with Global News. “They are authorized by a third party and the PPC has not been in any contact with this third party.”

The billboards have been reported in Halifax, parts of Quebec, Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary, Regina and Vancouver. The People’s Party of Canada has said it is not associated with the group that put up the signs.

READ MORE: The battle for Maxime Bernier’s riding

According to a filing with Elections Canada, the third-party group behind the ads is run by Frank Smeenk, the chief executive of a Toronto-based mining exploration company.

The group filed interim financial returns with Elections Canada that show it spent $59,890 on billboards in “select cities in Canada” and received $60,000 from Bassett & Walker International Inc., a company that specializes in the international trade of protein products.

Last week, Smeenk declined to comment on the billboard beyond what appeared in the Elections Canada filing. The Canadian Press attempted to reach Smeenk again on Friday, but he did not respond.

Similarly, messages left at Bassett & Walker were not returned.

Bernier officially launched the party’s national campaign Sunday at an event about two hours outside Montreal.

Polls suggest the party has around 4 per cent of voter support heading into the October election, and thus far, Bernier has been excluded from the official leadership debates.

Negative reactions to the billboard were raised fast, especially in Halifax where local politicians took to Twitter to denounce both the board and Bernier.

Arshia Vosoughi’s family immigrated to Canada from Iran when he was seven years old. Vosoughi, who points out that his parents are doctors, says that there are many skilled immigrants who come to Canada from different countries.

“I think it’s ridiculous to say ‘no immigration,’” said Vosoughi. “It’s one of the least Canadian things I’ve seen in all my time in this country.”

Peace by Chocolate founder Tareq Hadhad, who came to Nova Scotia as a Syrian refugee in 2016, says that the billboard is both divisive and inaccurate.

“There is nothing called ‘mass immigration’ in Canada,” Hadhad told Global News in a phone interview Saturday.

“Saying ‘mass immigration’ is certainly trying to make an illusion to the public that, you know, like caravans and waves of millions of people trying to hit the border, coming through the airports, but this is not happening.”

Kanye West, Dave Chappelle bring Sunday Service to Dayton, Ohio, following mass shooting – Fox News

August 25th, 2019

Kanye West brought his Sunday Service to Dayton, Ohio, with the help of some famous friends.

TMZ reports that West, 42, led his weekly religious service in the city to bring the community together following the mass shooting there earlier this month.

The site reports that a large crowd congregated in the city’s Riverscape MetroPark.

CELEBRITIES REACT TO DAYTON, EL PASO MASS SHOOTINGS

West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, and their daughter North, 6, and son Saint, 3, were reportedly in attendance, as was comedian Chris Rock.

Dave Chappelle, an Ohio native, addressed the crowd.

“Today the whole world is looking at you,” he said. “Gem City, shine!”

“Listen, we’ve been through a tough time,” he said. “There have been tornadoes, there’s been Klan rallies, there’s been shootings — but we’re still here and we’re still strong. And the only way — but not the only way — but the best way that we can honor our fallen is by getting up better than we were before.”

“We will not let those people die in vain,” he said. “They’re our heroes, they are our friends. This is our city. Gem City, shine. Let them know!”

Chappelle then thanked West for coming to the city.

A gunman armed with a rifle with the capacity to hold 100 rounds of ammunition opened fire outside a bar in Dayton, Ohio, killing nine people, including his sister, in what was the second U.S. mass shooting in fewer than 24 hours.

Connor Betts, armed with a .223-caliber rifle and wearing a bulletproof vest and earplugs, opened fire outside Ned Peppers Bar in the city’s Oregon District around 1 a.m. Officers in the area “neutralized” Betts within 30 seconds of the first gunshot being fired, police said.

Luck’s surprise retirement

Andrew Luck‘s plan to inform his teammates about his retirement after the Colts’ preseason game and then hold a press conference Sunday afternoon to announce it fell through when ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the stunning development Saturday night.

For as shocking as the news was, it was even more surprising to see some fans booing Luck as he left the field in Indy. A classless move by those in attendance and one that Luck admitted hurt him when he addressed the media after the game.

While many words will be written on Luck’s career and his decision to walk away, we’re here to break down what it means for fantasy managers, especially those drafting in the coming days. The next update to my rankings will be live on Monday, but until then, let’s take a quick look at what this means for the Colts’ skill position players.

Jacoby Brissett takes over under center and though he’s one of the better backups in the league, the drop off from Luck is immense. Brissett himself will be a fringe QB2 in fantasy around the likes of Andy Dalton and Marcus Mariota. It’s possible Brissett is more prepared for this moment than we realize, but he’ll need to prove that in real games before he can be trusted.

Every member of Indy’s receiving corps takes a hit, with T.Y. Hilton‘s value falling at least a full round into the fourth. Devin Funchess becomes nothing more than a touchdown-dependent weekly dart throw, and Parris Campbell‘s potential rookie breakout is now put on ice.

Eric Ebron was already slated for significant regression, especially with a deeper cast of pass-catchers around him, including a healthy Jack Doyle. Brissett’s presence lowers the upside of the entire offense, meaning those scoring opportunities Ebron thrived in will be even fewer and farther between. Ebron is a fringe TE1 and Doyle remains a bye-week fill-in at best.

Marlon Mack‘s stock is also negatively impacted. His touchdown ceiling is lowered and there will be less second-half carries due to poor game scripts. However, the Colts still boast one of the top offensive lines in the NFL and Brissett might be willing to dump the ball off to his backs more than Luck would have, which is notable given Mack’s increased role in the receiving game during the preseason. Consider Mack a low-end RB2 around the range of Leonard Fournette and Josh Jacobs.

Let’s hope Brissett can step up and help keep this offense rolling overall. He is facing the fourth-easiest schedule for fantasy quarterbacks in 2019.

Miller out for the year

Since arriving in Houston, it felt like Lamar Miller always left meat on the bone in terms of his production, and if you don’t believe me, just ask anyone who owned him in fantasy.

Even so, Miller was set up for another year as a borderline RB2/high-end RB3 given his status as the unquestioned lead back in a prolific offense.

On Saturday night, Miller’s time in Houston may have come to an end as he suffered what the team fears to be a torn ACL, according to Schefter. We already expected the Texans would move on from the 28-year-old rusher when his contract finished after this season, and now with the injury, that scenario is all but guaranteed.

Fortunately, Houston did recently trade for Duke Johnson – a superb change-of-pace back who has always wanted his shot to be a full-time ball carrier. This sounds exactly like Miller, who left the Dolphins for a chance to be a workhorse.

We know now that Miller was far more suited for a committee role than a true lead back, as he tended to break down late in seasons. If the Texans attempt to deploy Johnson in a similar fashion, the results will likely be the same.

Johnson is an outstanding pass-catching back, but he’ll need help carrying the workload. Whether that comes in the form of rookies Damarea Crockett and Karan Higdon or via a free agent like Jay Ajayi remains to be seen. Crockett is the more enticing of the young backs, but adding a veteran could be a smart move.

It’s also possible the team once again delves into the trade market, though a major deal for a star like Melvin Gordon seems like a long shot.

For the time being, Johnson is moving up to Miller’s former spot in my rankings, around RB30. If you want to stash one of the rookies, Crockett would be my choice.

Instant impressions

  • You can’t overreact to one play, but Dalvin Cook breaking an 85-yard touchdown in the third preseason contest has to make fantasy managers feel good about his outlook. It’s the first game action we’ve seen from Cook in 2019, who is a top-10 back in my rankings and one of my favorite targets in the second round. With Minnesota shifting to a more run-heavy approach, Cook could be a fantasy MVP – if he can stay healthy.
  • Assuming Kyler Murray sits out next week, the rookie completed the preseason with one strong performance, one weak outing, and one average display. It’s been tough to assess Murray, since we know head coach Kliff Kingsbury isn’t showing his cards before the real games in September and is running a basic offense. The first overall pick remains a high-variance fantasy option with an enticing top-five ceiling if everything comes together for him in Year 1. His offensive line is a concern, though.
  • We’re clinging to the belief Ezekiel Elliott is likely to reach a new deal with the Cowboys at some point before Week 1 or at least early in the season. If he doesn’t, Tony Pollard is going to smash in fantasy. The rookie has racked up 103 yards from scrimmage on 18 touches this preseason and deserves a role in this backfield even when/if Zeke returns.
  • Michael Gallup continues to flash in the Cowboys’ offense. His box score may only show one 12-yard touchdown catch on the night, but he actually crossed the goal line again on the next drive for a 21-yard TD that was taken away due to a penalty. Amari Cooper‘s foot issues make Gallup an even more intriguing late-round target for fantasy owners.
  • Sam Darnold has been outstanding in August, completing 17 of 25 attempts for 211 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. The sophomore often goes undrafted in fantasy, despite having breakout potential in a new offense with a better array of weapons around him. Keep him in mind if you’re waiting until the last rounds to address quarterback. His emergence would be a boon to Robby Anderson‘s fantasy stock, as well. The duo connected on a 41-yard reception on Saturday, part of a two-catch, 60-yard night for Anderson, who has low-end WR2 appeal this season.
  • Jimmy Garoppolo responded to recent struggles in preseason and practice by going 14 of 20 for 188 yards and a score on Saturday. It’s a relief to anyone associated with the 49ers, but Jimmy G is still a low-end QB2. We need Garoppolo to hold up his end of the bargain in order for the rest of the offense to thrive in fantasy. Dante Pettis had his best night of the preseason with three receptions for 36 yards and is an upside pick in the eighth round.
  • There’s value to be had in the 49ers’ backfield. Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida are being underestimated at their current ADPs in the fifth and 10th round, respectively. Coleman had a quiet night Saturday, but Breida went off for 44 rushing yards and 31 receiving yards, including a 20-yard diving touchdown. Both backs could potentially finish as top-30 fantasy options, which makes Breida a must-target.
  • Though Darwin Thompson has received most of the recent hype in the Chiefs’ backfield, Damien Williams reminded everyone he’s the lead back in Kansas City with a catch down the sidelines that he broke back into the middle of the field for a 62-yard touchdown. Williams will enter the year as an RB2 in fantasy and owners worried about Thompson can scoop him up as insurance in the middle rounds.
  • The Russell WilsonTyler Lockett tandem is one you’ll be hearing about a lot this season. Fresh off a breakout campaign, Lockett is set to take over as the clear top target in Seattle as an increase in volume is guaranteed with the departure of Doug Baldwin and injuries to D.K. Metcalf and David Moore. On Saturday, Lockett hauled in two passes for 50 yards, which was just a taste of his looming production in 2019. I’m so confident in Lockett, I’ve been willing to wait until the fourth round and take him as the No. 1 WR on some of my teams. With the aforementioned injuries, Jaron Brown is a sneaky pickup or late-round selection who could be a flex option early in the year.
