Heavy drinking is killing women in record numbers, and experts fear a coronavirus-related spike | Coronavirus

On her last day of consciousness, Misty Luminais Babin held onto hope. “I choose life,” the 38-year-old told her sister, husband and doctor from inside the Ochsner Medical Center ICU.

But her sister, Aimee Luminais Calamusa, knew it was a choice made too late. A former ICU nurse herself, she was trained to recognize signs of the end. Even after draining 3 liters of fluid from Babin’s abdomen, her liver — mottled and scarred by years of heavy drinking — couldn’t keep up. The fluid had started building up in her lungs and she gasped for air. Without oxygen, her other organs began to fail.

“When I left that day, I knew that would be the last time I talked to her, ever,” said Calamusa. “It was really hard to walk out that door.”

Babin died two days later, on June 14 of this year, after a long struggle with

Former Alabama wide receivers used to be like unicorns in the NFL, but Crimson Tide pass-catching alumni now dominate Fantasy football rankings each week. The Falcons have two former Alabama greats, as Matt Ryan can complete passes to both Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley. Amari Cooper highlights a shockingly deep wide receiver corps in Dallas, while rookies Jerry Jeudy in Denver and Henry Ruggs III in Las Vegas are off to solid NFL careers.

Fantasy Football Rankings Week 5, 2020: Model that beat experts says start Mike Davis, sit DeVante Parker

Running back depth has been tested by major Fantasy football injuries through the first several weeks of the season. Browns star Nick Chubb was the latest tailback to go down after he sprained his MCL in Week 4. Chubb was put on injured reserve and will miss at least six weeks, opening the door for former Pro Bowler Kareem Hunt to soar up the Fantasy football rankings. Jaguars running back James Robinson has also been a pleasant surprise, putting up 446 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns through four weeks.

Hunt has a tough matchup against a stingy Colts defense this week, but Robinson will attack a Houston defense that ranks dead-last in rushing yards allowed, potentially making him one of the most popular Fantasy football picks.

Women are excluded from global coronavirus coverage, experts say

“NEVER tell a woman (professional or otherwise) that she cannot speak with authority,” she wrote later on Twitter. “NEVER tell us we aren’t educated enough, experts enough, or good enough. We have every bit as much authority to speak.”

The exchange underscored a broader concern over the lack of female voices in media coverage of and policy debates on the coronavirus pandemic.

In coverage of the coronavirus, female scientists and doctors are cited far less frequently than their male counterparts, according to multiple multicountry studies. And when women are vocal, as with other policy debates and key areas of coverage, they often face online harassment and second-guessing of their expertise, several female scientists told The Washington Post.

The consequences are far-reaching. The marginalization of female experience and expertise colors the information available to policymakers forming coronavirus responses — which means interests and issues important to women may get underprioritized.

Australia’s English test for partner visas could leave women at mercy of abusers, experts warn | Australian budget 2020

The federal government’s plan to force people seeking a partner visa to learn English could leave them without a safety net from family violence, critics have said, despite the Coalition’s claim that the measure is aimed at protecting women.

The government announced in Tuesday’s budget that from late 2021 it would require partner visa applicants applying for permanency to have made “reasonable efforts” to learn English. The same test would apply to their permanent resident sponsors.

The acting immigration minister, Alan Tudge, said “reasonable efforts” could include taking 500 hours of the free adult migrant English program classes.

The government is boosting the number of partner visas available this financial year from just under 40,000 of the 160,000 overall visa cap to 72,300 in total. There will also be a new fee, with sponsors being charged $420 on top of the usual $7,715 partner visa application fee.

Experts call for including pregnant women in COVID-19 vaccine trials

More than 210,000 people in the U.S. have died from COVID-19, and tens of thousands are testing positive daily. The best way to defeat the pandemic is with a safe vaccine that can protect a large share of the population, especially people at higher risk of exposure, such as frontline health workers, and those more vulnerable, such as the elderly and, some health experts maintain, pregnant women. The data on whether pregnancy increases the risk for coronavirus infection or leads to more complications is incomplete, but there are preliminary indications that it is a potential risk factor.

By the workings of “herd immunity,” a vaccine wouldn’t even have to be given to everyone; if a large enough portion of the population is protected from infection, the virus won’t be able to keep spreading. The country is nowhere near that point at present.

It is encouraging to know that there are

If you had asked me a few years ago if I’d consider eloping, I would have raised an eyebrow in disapproval. While I love the intimate and romantic concept of escaping to say ‘I do,’ my favorite part of weddings has always been the people — the speeches, the dancing, and the events before the big day. But I couldn’t have predicted that 2020 would bring a global pandemic, rocking the wedding industry in its wake. And I also couldn’t have predicted that I would be newly engaged, weighing my options for a 2021 ceremony. Suddenly, eloping with my fiancé sounded much more exciting and alluring than ever
