Doctors looked at 305 hospitalized patients with elevated levels of troponin, a protein released when the heart has been injured. Death rates were 5.2% in patients without troponin in their blood, 18.6% when troponin was high but hearts looked normal, and 31.7% in those with high troponin plus so-called heart remodeling.

  • Veterans answer call to staff U.S. voting stations amid COVID-19 news

    A decade after Dan Berschinski deployed to Afghanistan to fight for freedom and lost his legs in battle, the former Army infantry officer is training for a key role in U.S. democracy: manning a voting station in place of elderly poll workers at risk of COVID-19. The retired Army captain, now 36, said a “perfect storm” is driving him and other former military members to volunteer at voting centers on Election Day, Nov. 3., where they will check IDs and bring people to voting booths. “Our infrastructure is undermanned and the people who traditionally do this job for us are at risk,” said Berschinski, a small business owner who lives in Atlanta with his girlfriend.

The vast region, comprising 46 countries at WHO, accounted for 46% of global cases and nearly one third of deaths, said Mike Ryan, the WHO's top emergencies expert.

  • County lines drug gangs recruiting children at the school gate, MP claims news

    County lines gangs are recruiting children at the school gate and targeting pupils as they leave detention, an MP has claimed. Labour Shadow Youth Justice Secretary Peter Kyle has said gang members wait outside school, hoping to recruit vulnerable children, and have even targeted pupil referral units. The term county lines refer to organised criminal networks involved in exporting illegal drugs into areas of the UK. The MP for Hove and Portslade said: “County lines drug gangs recruit the vulnerable. The drug gangs recruit outside schools waiting for the kids in detention." “They understand the vulnerabilities of children, they know the psychology of children.” "The criminals understand our child protection system better than the Home Office and the justice system.” The National Crime Agency says gangs often exploit children and adults with mental health or addiction problems to act as drug runners. In cases of 'cuckooing' the dealers will take over a local property, normally belonging to a vulnerable person, and use it as a base to operate their criminal activity from. Chief Superintendent Nick May from Sussex Police said: "Drug dealers recruiting young people outside schools is not a specific issue that has been reported to police in Brighton and Hove but I understand it is a despicable tactic that has been seen elsewhere. "County Lines is a complex issue, marring cities across the UK. In Brighton and Hove we are taking robust action to dismantle lines running into the city in order to disrupt the supply and prevent the vulnerable from being exploited.”

  • On the moon, water water everywhere and not a drop to drink (yet) news

    The moon lacks the bodies of liquid water that are a hallmark of Earth but scientists said on Monday lunar water is more widespread than previously known, with water molecules trapped within mineral grains on the surface and more water perhaps hidden in ice patches residing in permanent shadows. While research 11 years ago indicated water was relatively widespread in small amounts on the moon, a team of scientists is now reporting the first unambiguous detection of water molecules on the lunar surface. At the same time, another team is reporting that the moon possesses roughly 15,000 square miles (40,000 square kilometers) of permanent shadows that potentially could harbor hidden pockets of water in the form of ice.

  • Finnish psychotherapy patients risk having secrets made public after hack news

    Thousands of psychotherapy patients in Finland risk having their most painful and intimate secrets made public, after one of the country's largest private psychotherapists was hacked. Current and former patients of Vastaamo, which runs 25 centres across Finland, began receiving blackmail emails from Friday, two days after the company first went public about the data breach. "What makes this case unique is the large number of victims and how sensitive and personal the information is which the blackmailers have obtained," Marko Leponen, the police commissioner leading the investigation into the breach, said at a press conference on Sunday. He said that police could not yet rule out the involvement of both domestic and international criminals. The blackmail emails, which include the victims' personal numbers, demand a €200 bitcoin payment, which doubles to €400 if not paid within 24 hours. If the victim does not then pay within a further 24 hours, the blackmailers threaten to make their notes public, including full transcriptions of psychotherapy sessions. One victim told Finland's state broadcaster Yle that he had found the email when he searched his junk folder after the breach was publicised. "This blackmail message caused floods of tears," he said. "The situation is really distressing." There were several things he had told his therapist that he would not want to be made public, he confirmed. "I told him all my bad feelings there, but after that I said that I could do it alone, and I didn't go on." Vastaamo said on Wednesday that it had been approached by the blackmailers and decided not to meet their demands. In a further press release on Sunday, it said that it "deeply regretted" the breach, which it said appeared to have taken place between November 2018 and March 2019. Security experts told the Helsingin Sanomat newspaper that a 10-gigabyte data file containing psychotherapists' notes on 2,000 patients had appeared on websites hidden on the so-called 'dark web'. Victim Support Finland, a support line run by the Red Cross and five other charities, said that the number of calls from worried crime victims had leapt eight-fold on Friday as Vastaamo clients received the mails. The Red Cross has now launched a special line for victims of the leak, together with the charity Mental Health Finland.

    Sales of new U.S. single-family homes unexpectedly fell in September after four straight monthly increases, but the housing market remains supported by record low mortgage rates and demand for more space as the COVID-19 pandemic drags on. "While there could be some ups and downs along the way, we still look for strength in the housing market as low mortgage rates boost activity and earlier pent-up demand for housing is released," said Daniel Silver, an economist at JPMorgan in New York. New home sales fell 3.5% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 959,000 units last month.

  • U.S. early voting tops 60 million as historic pace continues news

    More than 60 million Americans have cast ballots in the U.S. presidential election with eight days to go, a record-breaking pace that could lead to the highest voter turnout in over a century, according to data from the U.S. Elections Project on Monday. The tally is the latest sign of intense interest in the contest between Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden, as well as voters' desire to reduce their risk of exposure to COVID-19, which has killed about 225,000 people across the United States. Democrats hold a significant advantage in early voting due to their embrace of mail balloting, which Republicans have historically cast in large numbers but have shunned amid repeated and unfounded attacks by Trump who says the system is prone to widespread fraud.

While Trump's administration acted on many rollbacks on Murray's wishlist, Murray's company, once the largest privately-held coal company in the country, went bankrupt last year as demand for coal from power utilities slumped.
