The National Rifle Association (NRA) filed for bankruptcy protection on Friday and announced that will move to Texas, as part of a restructuring plan to refloat its financial situation.

America’s largest conservative organization and gun lobby blamed “New York’s corrupt policy and regulatory environment”, where he faces a lawsuit from the state attorney general, Letitia James. New York has accused the leaders of the nonprofit organization of diverting millions of dollars for their personal use and declaring losses to the NRA worth 64 million dollars.

He District of Columbia has also sued the organization for improper use of funds obtained by donations to its foundation. “This movement will allow long-term and sustainable growth that ensures that the NRA continues to be the main defender of constitutional freedoms,” the organization said in a statement referring to the right to own and bear arms.

“The plan can be summarized simply: we throw New York in the trash and we are going to reincorporate the NRA in Texas, “said the organization’s leader, Wayne LaPierre, in an internal letter in which he denounced an alleged political persecution.

The NRA declared $ 500 million debt in your process to qualify for the suspension of payments of Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy law of the United States.

Although the NRA’s headquarters are in Virginia, it has been registered as a non-profit organization in New York since 1871.


The ″ miracle baby ″ of a mother in a coma with covid-19

A woman infected with covid-19, and in a coma, gave birth to a premature baby of 29 weeks at Hospital da Santa Maria, in Lisbon. It happened in November, but the case has only just been publicized, when the mother and baby have returned home in good health. This is one of the most extraordinary situations associated with the pandemic.

Elizangela, the 31-year-old woman, 27 weeks pregnant, had to be admitted to intensive care at Santa Maria Hospital in early November 2020. In a critical situation, with her lungs in a very serious condition, “she had to be placed in ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation, an end-of-line vital support technique) shortly afterwards, to maintain your oxygen levels and those of the baby “, explained on the Facebook page of the Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Norte.

At the same time, it is added that in the middle of November, with only 29 weeks of gestation, the worsening of his health led the teams of the Centro Hospitalar Universitário Lisboa Norte to move towards a procedure that had no records in world terms: a cesarean section of a premature infant with a pregnant covid linked to ECMO.

The operation took place in the gynecology block, adapted for this pandemic phase, and the plan resulted in a huge success. The baby, although premature, was born with about a kilo. The mother, in spite of having spent the last days of pregnancy in a serious condition, and with a “very uncertain” prognosis, according to the doctors at the Hospital de Santa Maria, was well and without sequelae, in the care of the Neonatology Service.

On December 7, Elizangela left intensive care, after a recovery that the specialists who accompanied her classified as “amazing”. Ten days later, he was discharged from Medicina II F and was able to spend Christmas at home, but still without his son.

Now, less than a week ago, the baby was also discharged from the Hospital de Santa Maria, where he will continue to be regularly monitored by Neonatology. The family is at home, happy as never before, and with a story of a true “miracle” in times of Covid-19.

Temperature rise will have unpredictable but negative consequences

Alfonso Delgado-Bonal, from the Goddard Space Flight Center of NASA, stressed that the immediate effects are already visible, in the form of increasingly more extreme weather phenomena, although the long-term consequences are unpredictable.

“If this trend continues, we cannot even measure or predict the effects. It is very worrying,” said this atmospheric physicist, a native of Salamanca, in an interview with Lorenzo Castro E., of Efe.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration USA (NASA, on the acronym in English) released on Thursday its annual report on the temperature of the planet, according to which the average of 2020 was 1.02 degrees Celsius (ºC) above the value recorded between 1951-1980, which is used as reference.

According to the National Administration of Oceans and Atmosphere of USA (NOAA, the acronym in English), the year 2020 had an average temperature of 14.88ºC, a hundredths below that of 2016, in contrast to the NASA, which points out 2020 as hotter than 2016, but by a difference so small that essentially the two years are tied.

Thinner-Bonal highlights what the NASA he pointed out, namely that the trend of the last seven years, the hottest since there are records, since 1880, bodes for new records, unless habits are changed.

“Our greenhouse gas emissions do not stop, the atmosphere continues to heat up and, moreover, it is a cumulative process,” said the scientist.

For this reason, mandatory quarantines in much of the planet, due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus, ended up having a residual effect on the global average temperature of the planet.

Delgado-Bonal highlighted the consensus of scientists on the effect of activity the temperature of the planet, which includes both activity industrial, as or abbe of trees in the Amazon rainforest.

The scientist stressed that the climate crisis will bring meteorological events “more frequent and more intense”, as was the last hurricane season in the Atlânative, with several records, including the number of named storms that formed, 30, two more than in 2005.

Of the 12 storms or hurricanes that hit land in the USA – Hanna, Beta, Laura, Delta, Zeta, Marco, Christopher, Sally, And, Berta, Isaías and Fay – there were seven that individually caused damage estimated at more than one billion dollars (828 million euros).

A report from the NOAA, broadcast this month, reveals that the damage caused by natural disasters in the USA in 2020 it exceeded 95 billion dollars (78,635 million euros), the fourth highest value in history.

Delgado-Bonal warned of possible seasons cyclonic, like that of 2020, with the foreseeable disastrous consequences for economies and, more importantly, the loss of human lives.

A teacher said in class that it was Antifa to invade Capitol Hill. Students laughed

Ostudents at a school in Florida recorded the moment when the teacher decided to teach about the attack on the Capitol, informing the class that the riot was caused, not by Trump supporters, but by members of Antifa (anti-fascist movement associated with the far left) ).

The students began to counter-argue, with one referring that they wore hats and other clothing in support of Donald Trump.

“They were paid to be there and cause a riot, they had to make it look like they were Trump supporters, so they wore hats and carried Trump flags,” replied the teacher, who was teaching that class in place of the permanent teacher at the school. Lake Wales.

The professor, says Yahoo, made reference to an article by the conservative Washington Times, who wrote that facial recognition identified Antifa members among Trump’s supporters, something that was later denied and the article was corrected.

Another student recalled that they were Trump supporters who were in Washington that day, and that they went to the Capitol to try to prevent the vote that made Joe Biden’s election official. The professor denied, claiming that Trump’s supporters were “trying to prevent the windows from breaking.”

After the video was released, the teacher was fired not only from that school, but also from the school group, as confirmed by Damien Moses, the school’s director, to TMZ. “We met with her and she was fired, not just from our school, but the entire school district,” she clarified.

It is recalled that at least 70 invaders who have already been identified, arrested and formally charged with the January 6 attack on the Capitol, which culminated in the death of five people, including an official.

Washington federal prosecutor Michael Sherwin has indicated, however, that he is expected to bring charges against “hundreds” of people. The charges range from theft of government property, illegal entry into a restricted building, disorderly conduct on Capitol Hill with the intention of preventing operation, trespassing and rioting.
