In Echo of Flint, Mich., Water Crisis Now Hits Newark 

 

For nearly a year and a half, top officials in Newark denied that their water system had a widespread lead problem, despite ample evidence that the city was facing a public health crisis that had echoes of the one in Flint, Mich.

Even as the risk persisted in the spring, the officials in Newark, New Jersey’s most populous city, took few precautionary measures, instead declaring on their website, “NEWARK’S WATER IS ABSOLUTELY SAFE TO DRINK.”

But this month, facing results from a new study, the officials abruptly changed course, beginning an urgent giveaway of 40,000 water filters across the city of 285,000 people, targeting tens of thousands of residences.

19 sickened after chemicals overcome swimmers at California pool 

 

Authorities said 19 young people were injured — and 12 transported to the hospital — after they were overwhelmed by pool chemicals at a swim school in Thousand Oaks, California, CBS Los Angeles reports. Officials said seven of the injuries were critical but none of the injuries was described as life-threatening.

Most of the victims were teens and kids between the ages of 11 and 15, said Ventura County Fire officials.

The exact cause of the incident is under investigation.

LGBT Community Has Poorer Health Outcomes, Assessment Finds 

 

"LGBT people experience the same stressors that anyone else does and when you add their internalized feelings and perceptions of discrimination, there are obvious implications for overall health," Stepleman says. "This assessment is meant to provide an overview, but it helps establish an important baseline and will help us look at the impact of minority stress on a lot of other health variables."

Minority stress describes chronically high levels of stress faced by members of minority groups and can be due to things like poor social support and low socioeconomic status. Many studies have shown that it can contribute to health problems like high blood pressure and anxiety.

How Does the LGBTQ Mind Age? 

 

Most of us don’t like to think about getting older, although we admit it beats the alternative. But there are a lot of older LGBT people — and will be even more in the next decades — and as we age, we have to think about age-related conditions and whether they affect LGBT people differently than straight and cisgender folks. Unfortunately, there's a dearth of information on this subject.

A new study from the University of California, San Francisco, and Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland is a start toward rectifying that. At the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference last month in Chicago, they presented the first dementia prevalence data from a large population of lesbian, gay, and bisexual older adults.

“It’s important for us to make sure that all populations are studied and included in research,” Rebecca Edelman, director of scientific research at the Alzheimer’s Association, told The Advocate.

As millennials, especially Latinos and blacks, own fewer homes, wealth gap will grow 

 

Angely Mercado, 26, who has a master's degree in journalism, makes a living as a freelance writer; she hopes to land a full-time job at some point.

The Queens, New York, resident was clear when she was asked where home ownership stood on her list of priorities. “I wish it could be higher, but it's not financially possible,” said Mercado, who describes herself as very budget conscious and someone who obtained scholarships so she wouldn't have student loans like so many young people her age.

Still, Mercado has to live with her parents in the home they own. She's part of a generation of millennials who are less likely than previous generations to buy homes, according to a new report from Better Mortgage, a digital lender focused on improving access to home finance, and the Urban Institute, a nonprofit organization with a focus on social and economic policy.

McDonald’s Pulls Salads From 3,000 Locations After Midwest Food Poisoning Outbreak 

 

Dozens of people appear to have contracted an intestinal parasite after eating McDonald’s salads in the Midwest in recent weeks, prompting the chain to pull salads from 3,000 locations.

According to USA Today, since mid-May, 20 people became ill after eating salads in Illinois, alongside another 15 who ate salads in late June or early July in Iowa. Other outlets are reporting as many as 90 cases in Illinois, although not all reported eating McDonald’s salads.

Specifically, these individuals contracted the cyclospora parasite. Symptoms can take over a week to appear, and can stick around for anywhere from days to months — they include most of the food poisoning standards like vomiting and cramps, alongside “diarrhea and frequent, sometimes explosive bowel movements.” In some cases, patients may improve and fall ill again over time.

The Era of Affirmative Action May Not Last Much Longer 

 

On Tuesday, the Trump administration made its official position clear: Schools should limit their use of race as a factor when determining admissions. The administration is moving to rescind seven guidance documents from the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights and the Department of Justice, according to The New York Times. These Obama-era memos encouraged elementary, secondary schools, and colleges to use race in efforts diversify their student bodies, and outlined how to do so within the law. The Trump administration will break with this precedent, and will not actively encourage schools to diversify, the Times reported.

The HIV-positive man who stopped thousands getting the virus 

 

Greg Owen wanted a new drug, not available through the NHS, that would stop him becoming HIV-positive. But it was too late - he already had the virus. Despite this, he and a friend worked on an ambitious plan to help thousands of others get the new treatment.

"You know when you do one thing… when your whole life changes? Pressing that send on Facebook was actually the moment my whole life changed."

Greg Owen grew up in Belfast, the eldest of six children. It was the 1980s, the height of the Troubles, and he was, as he puts it, "very gay".

Puerto Rico pushes for statehood, calling it a civil rights issue 

 

Puerto Rico is making its biggest push for statehood in years, filing legislation in Congress that would make the island the 51st state by 2021.

Rep. Jenniffer González-Colón (R) filed a bill on Wednesday that would pave the way for the island to become a state no later than January 2021. The measure is co-sponsored by 21 Republicans and 14 Democrats and fulfills the promises of González-Colón and Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló, who campaigned on a statehood platform and said statehood is a civil rights issue for Puerto Ricans.

“No longer do we want ambiguity. No longer do we want this kicked down the road,” Rosselló said at a Capitol Hill news conference. “In Congress you’re either with us or you’re against the people of Puerto Rico.”

The Next Time You Crave Chicken, Remember That Chick-fil-A Is Still Very Much Anti-Gay 

 

In September 2012, after years of publicly opposing same-sex marriage and donating millions to anti-LGBTQ groups, Chick-fil-A — the Christian-founded fast-food chain known for their chicken sandwiches and billboards of half-literate cows encouraging folks to “EAT MOR CHIKIN” — said that it had “ceased donating to organizations that promote discrimination, specifically against LGBT civil rights.”

According to ThinkProgress, the Chick-fil-A Foundation’s most recent IRS filings from 2015 reveal hundreds of thousands in donations to anti-LGBTQ groups. They gave $1 million to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a religious organization with “a strict ‘sexual purity’ policy, prohibiting any ‘homosexual acts.'”

They also donated $200,000 to the Paul Anderson Youth Home, a Georgia-based group that runs a “Christian residential home for troubled youth.” The organization believes that the “sexual, physical and mental abuse of children” resulted in “the explosion of homosexuality in the last century.”
