Bernie Sanders blasted Baltimore as ‘Third World country’ and ‘disgrace’ in past comments | Fox News

President Trump drew a torrent of criticism from Democrats on Saturday over a series of Twitter messages aimed at U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., and the Baltimoredistrict that Cummings represents in Congress.

But just a few years ago, Sen. Bernie Sanders — a candidate seeking the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination — took his own shots at Baltimore, a struggling Northeast city grappling with high rates of violent crime, drug abuse, poverty and political corruption.

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation,” Sanders said during a visit to the city’s West Baltimore section in December 2015, the Baltimore Sun reported. “You would think that you were in a Third World country.”

8 Wisconsin teens hospitalized with severe lung damage due to vaping, doctors suspect

Eight teens were hospitalized in July with seriously damaged lungs in Wisconsin, the state Department of Health Services reported Thursday.

“We suspect that these injuries were caused by vaping,” said Dr. Michael Gutzeit, chief medical officer at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin where the teens were admitted, at a press conference.

Their symptoms, including cough, shortness of breath, and fatigue, worsened over days or weeks before the patients arrived at Children’s Hospital. Some reported fever, anorexia, chest pain, nausea and diarrhea. Scans and X-rays showed inflammation or swelling throughout both lungs, said Gutzeit.

All eight patients, who live in Milwaukee, Waukesha and Winnebago counties, tested negative for infectious diseases and reported vaping in the weeks and months before their hospital admission.

“The severity of health condition has varied, with some patients needing assistance in order to breathe,” said Gutzeit. He added that the teens have shown improvement after treatment, but any long-term effects are not yet known. With “an exponential increase in the number of teens vaping,” Gutzeit is concerned that more teens will develop similar lung damage that requires hospital treatment.

The Anti-Illegal Immigration Agency in the Tripoli said up to 350 migrants were on board boats that capsized Thursday off the town of Khoms, around 75 miles east of Tripoli, in an incident described by a U.N. official as the “worst Mediterranean tragedy” of the year to date.

The migrants include nationals from Eritrea, Egypt, Sudan and Libya.

Rescued migrants rest on a coast some 100 kilometers (60 miles) east of Tripoli, Libya, Thursday, July 25, 2019.

Hong Kong: Defiant protesters return to site of subway violence for 8th weekend of marches – CNN

Yuen Long, Hong Kong (CNN)Tens of thousands of protesters descended Saturday on the small town near Hong Kong’s border with China that was hit by some of the worst violence seen during the past eight weeks of tumultuous protests.

On July 21, after a demonstration in downtown Hong Kong against a now-shelved extradition bill was broken up by police, protesters returning to Yuen Long were attacked by a mob wielding iron bars and bamboo sticks.
Footage of the attack posted on social media showed the marauding masked gang, wearing white T-shirts, attacking crowds on the platform and inside train carriages at Yuen Long MTR station, in the far northwest of the semi-autonomous Chinese city.
About a dozen men have been arrested in connection with that violence, some of whom have links to organized crime groups, or triads. Protesters were reportedly at the mercy of the mob for almost an hour before police arrived and at least 45 people were injured, some seriously.

Moscow police detain hundreds over election protests – YouTube

Russian police arrested more than 600 people, including prominent activists, around a political protest in Moscow to demand that members of the opposition be allowed to run in a local election later this year. The protest, which authorities declared illegal beforehand, did not represent a major challenge to President Vladimir Putin and his allies who have the resources to break up such demonstrations and jail people. Chants of ‘Russia without Putin’ and ‘Putin resign’ echoed through central Moscow as guardsmen clad in riot gear beat back protesters with batons and roughly detained people. Jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny had called for the protest, near the Moscow mayor’s office, to persuade authorities to allow opposition-minded candidates to run in a Sept. 8 vote in Moscow, which they have been barred from.

Hordes of grasshoppers descend upon Las Vegas, experts blame wet weather | Fox News

Wet weather to blame for the hordes of grasshoppers that have descended upon Las Vegas this week.

“It appears through history that when we have a wet winter or spring, these things build up often down below Laughlin and even into Arizona,” Jeff Knight, an entomologist with the Nevada Department of Agriculture, said on Thursday.

“We’ll have flights about this time of the year, migrations, and they’ll move northward,” he added.

This year, the Las Vegas area recorded more rain in six months than the annual average of just under 4.2 inches per year.
