23:52 RFI.fr 'Grease' star Olivia Newton-John dies aged 73

Newton-John "passed away peacefully at her ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends," said a statement from her husband John Easterling posted on her official social media accounts. The entertainer, whose career spanned more than five decades, devoted much of her time and celebrity to charities after first being diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992. The British-born and Australian-raised star dedicated a number of albums and concerts to raise funds for research and early detection of the disease, including the construction of a health centre named after her in her adopted home Melbourne. "I don't like to say 'battled'," a defiant Newton-John told Australia's Channel Seven TV in September 2018 after revealing she had been diagnosed with cancer for a third time. "I like to say 'win over', because 'battled' sets up this anger and inflammation that you don't want." 'You're the one that I want' Newton-John is best-known for starring in the 1978 musical

New research builds the case that a Western-style diet -; rich in red and processed meat, sugar and refined grains/carbohydrates -; is tied to higher risk of colorectal cancer through the intestinal microbiota.

22:41 TheStar.com Vinay Menon: In the ‘peach tree dish’ of Republican politics, Marjorie Taylor Greene’s hatred of English is growing

Marjorie Taylor Greene’s public persona is defined by what she hates. Immigrants. Vegans. Gun control. Communism. Elites. Joe Biden. Globalism. CRT. Science. Abortion. Democratic elections. The media. George Soros. Anthem kneeling. Jimmy Kimmel. Education. Vaccines. Metal detectors. PBS. Good quality hair dye. And any theory that is not a deranged conspiracy. It’s only a matter of time until she lashes out at gravity as a liberal hoax. Fine. Whatever. I no longer have the energy to reason with the unreasonable. The kook-a-palooza wing of the Republican party is now headquartered on Mars. Reality has been choked out by bonkers fantasy.

02:54 RFI.fr Pollution behind 1 in 6 global deaths in 2019: study

Human-created waste in the air, water and soil rarely kills people immediately, but causes instead heart disease, cancer, respiratory problems, diarrhoea and other serious illnesses. The Lancet Commission on pollution and health said the impact from pollution on global health remains "much greater than that of war, terrorism, malaria, HIV, tuberculosis, drugs and alcohol". Pollution is an "existential threat to human health and planetary health, and jeopardises the sustainability of modern societies," it added. In general, the review found, air pollution -- accounting for a total of 6.7 million deaths globally in 2019 -- was "entwined" with climate change because the main source of both problems is burning fossil fuels and biofuels. "If we can't manage to grow in a clean and green way, we're doing something terribly wrong," said the report's lead author Richard Fuller, of the Global Alliance on Health and Pollution, adding that chemical pollution also harms biodiversity --

08:42 RFI.fr Relief and alarm as El Salvador rounds up 'gangsters'

But the clampdown has drawn complaints of rights abuses, and experts say mass arrests are but a stop-gap as long as so many Salvadorans have no feasible exit from a life of penury. With a poverty rate of 30.7 percent and sky-high unemployment that pushes ever more people to emigrate, a career as a gangster is one of few options available to those who remain. The most prominent gangs, Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) and Barrio 18, count some 70,000 members in the country of 6.5 million people. Almost half are thought to be behind bars. They eke out a living by extorting protection money from anyone who wishes to avoid harm and from drug dealing that brings them into regular conflict with one another. In a particularly bloody weekend in March, 87 ordinary civilians died at the hands of gangs in 72 hours of violence around the country. That bloodbath prompted President Nayib Bukele to announce a state of emergency that has allowed the police and military to round up more than 18,000 alleged

Tucker Carlson has new medical advice for his male viewers. It’s time to embrace “testicle tanning.” I will say this about the popular Fox News host: it takes a lot of balls to speak out of your ass every night. But Carlson is not a philosopher king so much as a gifted illusionist. His shtick is to feign outrage behind a constipated resting face while railing against liberal bromides and poisons. To his fans, he is an antidote to the MSM and despised “elites,” a sociological construct that apparently does not include heirs to frozen food empires who pad around country clubs in silk cravats and deck shoes. Carlson was born to more money than his fans will earn in their lifetimes. That they see him as a working-class hero is a magic trick that rivals Houdini. But let’s get back to the testicle tanning.

In fact, this whole area is part of scientific work to help farmers cut down on their use of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilisers. "I felt that these products were dangerous," said farmer David Bonneau as he hunched over the little wildflowers -- veronica and hickweed. And "the general public is asking for reductions". One of his experimental plots is treated the standard way, with chemical weedkiller; another he weeds mechanically with a harrow whose teeth tear up the wild plants; while a third will not be treated at all. He is part of a project involving 400 farms and around 40 villages in the Deux-Sevres region of western France, where scientists are experimenting with different techniques to cut pollution. Researchers from the French research agency, CNRS, support volunteer farmers to reduce the use of pesticides -- probable sources of cancer and fatal to birds -- as well as water-polluting chemical fertilisers, the prices of which are exploding.

Pinching closed the perogy — or the perogi or pierogi or pyrohy, for that matter, for a bumpy transition from Cyrillic to English has made spellings as varied as fillings — is the final step in the process, and a critical one. The dough must be tightly sealed around the golf-ball-sized orb of potato and cheese, or the whole thing could burst when it hits the boiling water. “There’s nothing worse than putting all that effort in and then having it break open,” Moussienko says, sitting in a church basement as she moves swiftly onto the next, and the next. “I could pinch these all day.” If you want to start an argument, head to the Canadian Prairies and form a strong opinion about perogy size, filling, cooking method or even spelling.

23:19 TheStar.com The myth of zero risk: Have two years of a pandemic taught us anything about navigating uncertainty?

In the months before September 2008, as physicists were getting ready to test-drive the Large Hadron Collider, a massive machine designed to smash bits of atoms together at high speed, public panic set in, fuelled by a debate between a handful of physicists about a theoretical possibility. What if the device, the most powerful ever made, created black holes by mistake that would swallow Earth? Physicists calculated that the chances were infinitesimal, but they couldn’t absolutely guarantee that the risk of such a surreal catastrophe was zero. That led to lawsuits to have the $6-billion machine mothballed, death threats against one scientist, a spate of media stories, and tearful calls from distraught parents to the Swiss-based European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, where the collider is housed. At 10:28 a.m. on September 10, 2008, physicists turned the collider on anyway. The end of the world has not yet arrived. The black-hole panic is an

For the chef, if they spend too much time chopping vegetables and neglect the main course cooking on the stove, the result is a burnt dish. Similarly, if the protein hub spends too much time interacting with one protein and is not given a break to accomplish its other important tasks, it can lead to disease states such as cancer.

Bullying at school over his weight -- the nickname Meat Loaf came early -- was followed by the devastating loss of his mother to cancer while he was still a teenager. He told Classic Rock magazine that he grabbed her body at the funeral, screaming: "You can't have her!" Not long after he was on his way to New York, looking for ways to channel the angst and histrionics into performance. There, he teamed up with composer and playwright Jim Steinman who provided the wild, theatrical backing music to accompany Meat Loaf's bellowing voice.

The island country has been in the grips of a severe economic crisis, with a lack of foreign exchange triggering shortages of food, crude oil and other essential goods. On the weekend, authorities lifted a ban on pesticides and other farming goods, after food shortages saw the price of vegetables double and supermarkets began rationing rice. Sri Lanka completely banned the use of glyphosate -- classified as a "probable carcinogen" by the World Health Organization -- in 2015. It later carved out a limited exemption for the tea industry, the country's main export earner, after plantation owners predicted crop failure and huge unemployment.

They drew on meat import and export figures from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to find out where in the world red and processed meats had become more available. They then checked these findings against health data from the Global Burden of Disease project. "The increased intake of red and processed meat products via trade caused the abrupt increase of diet-related non-communicable diseases," the study published in the British Medical Journal concluded. The adverse effects of a diet high in red and processed meats is well known.

An evaluation was undertaken to assess the reliability of a meta-analysis examining the association between red and processed meat and selected human health effects (all-cause mortality, cardiovascular mortality, overall cancer mortality, breast cancer incidence, colorectal cancer incidence, type 2 diabetes incidence). Methods: The number of statistical tests and models were counted in 15 randomly selected base papers (14%) from 105 used in the meta-analysis. Relative risk with 95% confidence limits for 125 risk results were converted to p-values and p-value plots were constructed to evaluate the effect heterogeneity of the p-values. Results:

This is an adapted excerpt from “The Two Michaels: Innocent Canadian Captives and High Stakes Espionage in the U.S.-China Cyber War,” to be published next month. Early in the summer of 2018 a historic meeting between U.S. president Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un unfolded in Singapore. It was the first time that a sitting American president had met with a North Korean leader. The meeting was a coup for Kim, who had been denied face time with Barack Obama, who didn’t want to give the despot a soapbox or a platform. Previous American presidents had similarly snubbed Kim’s father. Trump had no such compunctions. His ambassador to Canada at the time, Kelly Craft, said that her president was determined to “carry the water” for a Western world determined to make peace with North Korea; he was determined to succeed where others had failed. So the president walked into a luxurious Singapore hotel to meet the waiting Kim. He mugged and deadpanned for the

14:18 RFI.fr 'Worried and anxious': Conflict-hit Ethiopia confronts new year

Tesfaye Hagos usually rings in the Ethiopian New Year by buying embroidered cotton dresses for his wife and young daughters, slaughtering a goat and inviting friends around for a feast. But not this time. With war raging in the country's north and ethnic Tigrayans like himself fearing arbitrary arrest, Tesfaye plans to keep his head down during Saturday's holiday. "The new year is coming, but it's far from my mind," he told AFP. "I'm just going to stay at home and pray for peace." Africa's second most populous country adheres to a unique 13-month calendar that begins in September and runs seven to eight years behind the Gregorian version. Saturday will mark the first day of 2014 for Ethiopians. The celebrations are usually merry, with families singing and dancing as small children gather bouquets of the bright yellow daisies that bloom every year. But this year's festivities have been dampened by the conflict -- particularly for ethnic Tigrayans -- and related economic woes, notably

19:43 RFI.fr By chance, ozone treaty prevented 'scorched Earth' climate

A 1987 treaty to repair a thin layer of ozone in the atmosphere that shields life on Earth from cancer-causing ultraviolet rays probably had the unintended benefit of preventing runaway climate change, even if that danger persists for other reasons, researchers said Wednesday. If the Montreal Protocol had not banned the manmade gases that dissolve naturally occurring ozone, by 2100 they would have heated up the planet's surface 2.5 degrees Celsius above-and-beyond warming caused by the carbon pollution humanity is struggling to curb today, they reported in the journal Nature. An increase of barely 1C since the mid-19th century has seen climate change amplify deadly heatwaves, rainfall and coastal storms made more destructive by rising seas. Even if nations manage against all odds to cap global warming below the Paris Agreement goal of 1.5C, the extra heat avoided thanks to the ozone treaty would have created an unliveable 4C world, the modelling study suggests.

02:02 RFI.fr Researchers find biological links between red meat and colorectal cancer

Eating less red meat is standard medical advice for preventing colorectal cancer, but the way it causes cells to mutate has remained unclear, and not all experts were convinced there was a strong link. A new paper in the journal Cancer Discovery has now identified specific patterns of DNA damage triggered by diets rich in red meat -- further implicating the food as a carcinogen while heralding the possibility of detecting the cancer early and designing new treatments. Prior research establishing the connection was mainly epidemiologic, meaning that people who developed the condition were surveyed on their eating habits, and researchers spotted associations with colorectal cancer incidence. But a lack of clarity around the biology meant that the case wasn't quite slam dunk, and in 2019, one team of researchers made waves when they declared they only had a "low" degree of certainty that reducing consumption would prevent cancer deaths. "When we say red meat is carcinogenic, and that it

Johany Perez, a stretcher-bearer at a hospital in Caracas, earns a "starvation wage" of the minimum $2.20 a month in a Venezuela wracked by a severe economic crisis. However, like many staff at the Clinical University Hospital, one of the most important doctor training centers in the South American country, he won't quit. "I love my hospital," said the 30-year-old, who has spent 14 years working there. But he laments the "starvation wage that they call minimum and has become even more minimum because you can't eat with this." "We're working free for the state," he added bitterly. Many working in the public sector need to take second or even third jobs to make ends meet. The highest monthly salary for someone working in public administration is less than $10, despite a 300 percent raise ordered by President Nicolas Maduro. In Venezuela, the minimum wage is not even enough to buy a kilogram of meat. Meanwhile, the average private sector salary is around $50. Hyperinflation and monetary

It won’t wipe away the sting of another first-round disappointment, but the accolades are still coming in for Maple Leafs star centre Auston Matthews. The 23-year-old is a finalist for the Hart Trophy as the most valuable player to his team, as voted on by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association. It’s his first nomination for the most prestigious individual award in hockey. He’s also the first Leaf nominated for the award since Doug Gilmour was a finalist when Mario Lemieux won in 1993. The voting is based on regular-season performance, and his 41 goals led the league, netting him the Rocket Richard Trophy, the first Leaf to win the award since it was introduced in 1999. Matthews was the first Toronto Maple Leaf to lead the league in goals in 75 years (Gaye Stewart, 37 goals, 1945-46) and the first American player to do so in 24 years (Keith Tkachuk, 52, 1996-97).

The bulk of my family gatherings as a kid took place at a buffet. The house wasn’t big enough to hold 20 people, nor did we always have the money for a set dinner at a banquet hall. For us, the buffet was less of a place to test our stomachs’ capacities and more of a relatively affordable (but still fancy-feeling) way to celebrate our grandparents’ birthdays. Personally, as an incredibly shy child, having a valid excuse to leave the table every 20 minutes and not make small talk with relatives was amazing. The reunions stopped when my grandparents died, but buffets and family are forever linked in my mind. The same goes for The Host at 670 Highway 7 in Richmond Hill. It’s an Indian buffet by day and a table service restaurant at night (before the pandemic, anyway).

Anne Douglas, a philanthropist and widow of Hollywood legend Kirk Douglas, died Thursday at her home in Beverly Hills, her family said. She was 102. Kirk Douglas, who died in February 2020 at the age of 103, met his future wife in Paris in 1953, while filming "Act of Love." After a whirlwind courtship, the couple got married in Las Vegas on May 29, 1954. "It wasn't romantic, but it was legal and her new husband vowed that someday he would marry her again in a big celebration," the Douglas family said in their statement. Kirk Douglas, one of the last superstars of Hollywood's golden age of cinema renowned for performances in "Spartacus" and "Paths of Glory," fulfilled that promise in 2004 for their 50th anniversary. The couple were married for 66 years and had two sons, Peter and Eric. Their family also included two other sons, Michael and Joel, children from Kirk Douglas's first marriage.

Not long before he turned 40, GTA mobster Gaetano (Guy) Panepinto found a job that seemed perfect: discount casket salesman. His company, Casket Royale on St. Clair Avenue West, had the motto: “Do not make an emotional loss a financial loss,” and earned the nickname, “The Discount Casket Guy.” Casket Royale’s caskets included the “George,” a $295 fake wood model; the denim-covered, cowboy-themed “Tucson” (a.k.a. the “Bubba Box”) for $1,550; and the Basilica, a steel model with an image of the Last Supper and a $2,325 tab. The top of the line was the “Windsor,” with plenty of bronze and a $4,900 price tag. Casket Royale’s owners boasted all of their prices were about half of what customers could expect they pay at a funeral home — and kids got their casket for free.

Now over two decades later she will celebrate the expected passage on Thursday of a bill allowing euthanasia in Spain under strict conditions.

China has experienced rapid economic growth in recent decades that has profoundly changed eating habits -- massively popular online delivery apps make cheap, calorie-rich meals available to city dwellers at all hours. That growth now means that more than 50 percent of people are overweight for the first time, according to a National Health Commission report published Wednesday, out of which 16.4 percent are considered obese. That proportion is nearly double the 29 percent of adults classified as overweight or obese in 2002.
