Michigan man plans to steal helicopter for hospital attack to free COVID-19 patients, police say

Source: WDIV

BAY CITY, Mich. – A Michigan man devised a plan to steal a helicopter from the Coast Guard in order to attack a police station and shooting up a hospital to disrupt the power and free the coronavirus (COVID-19) patients, authorities said.

Jesse Theodore McFadden, 70, is accused of calling Arenac County dispatchers around 8 a.m. Sunday to say he was on his way to the United States Coast Guard Station in Bay City, Michigan, to steal a helicopter, according to officials.

Coronavirus: French brothers strike gold under lockdown

Most parents will have come to appreciate the increasingly tricky task of keeping the kids entertained.

But as the weather warms up, plenty of children will be looking to the garden for new ways to pass the time.

And for two French brothers, that resulted in a valuable discovery.

Their parents decided to leave Paris when France imposed a lockdown and move to a family home in the town of Vendôme, south-west of the capital.

The boys, both aged about 10, asked to build a makeshift hut in the garden using branches, leaves and sheets.

Their father, a businessman in his 60s, told them that they could use their late grandmother's sheets, which were in a spare room.

When they went to collect them "two fairly heavy objects" fell out, Philippe Rouillac, a local auctioneer, told BFMTV. "They didn't pay attention to them and put them back."

But the boys soon told their father about the discovery.

"He asked them to go and get them," Mr Rouillac said. "But he initially believed they were knife holders that belonged to the grandmother."

He contacted Mr Rouillac's company to double check and, after sending a few photographs, he was told the good news.

he objects were not knife holders, but two gold bars weighing 1kg (2.2lb) each.

Both bars are now listed on the auctioneer's website with an estimated value of 40,000 euros (£35,800; $43,800) a piece.

It turned out that the bars were purchased by the grandmother in 1967 and even come with a proof of purchase.


Researchers: Nearly Half Of Accounts Tweeting About Coronavirus Are Likely Bots


Nearly half of the Twitter accounts spreading messages on the social media platform about the coronavirus pandemic are likely bots, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University said Wednesday.

Researchers culled through more than 200 million tweets discussing the virus since January and found that about 45% were sent by accounts that behave more like computerized robots than humans.

It is too early to say conclusively which individuals or groups are behind the bot accounts, but researchers said the tweets appeared aimed at sowing division in America.

"We do know that it looks like it's a propaganda machine, and it definitely matches the Russian and Chinese playbooks, but it would take a tremendous amount of resources to substantiate that," said Kathleen Carley, a professor of computer science at Carnegie Mellon University who is conducting a study into bot-generated coronavirus activity on Twitter that has yet to be published.

Researchers identified more than 100 false narratives about COVID-19 that are proliferating on Twitter by accounts controlled by bots.

Among the misinformation disseminated by bot accounts: tweeted conspiracy theories about hospitals being filled with mannequins or tweets that connected the spread of the coronavirus to 5G wireless towers, a notion that is patently untrue.

Such bogus ideas on the Internet have caused real-world harm. In England, dozens of wireless towers have been set on fire in acts officials believe have been fueled by false conspiracy theories linking the rollout of 5G technology to the coronavirus.

Three Russian doctors fall from hospital windows, raising questions amid coronavirus pandemic

Source: CNN

Moscow (CNN)Three frontline healthcare workers have mysteriously fallen out of hospital windows in Russia over the past two weeks, heightening public attention to the working conditions for doctors and medical professionals amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Two of those healthcare workers are dead, and one remains hospitalized.
All three incidents, which are being investigated by Russian law enforcement authorities, have prompted intense discussion in the Russian press and on social media.

Alexander Shulepov, an ambulance doctor in Voronezh, a city about 320 miles south of Moscow, is in serious condition after falling from a hospital window on Saturday. Local state television, citing regional health officials, said he fell out of second-floor window of the Novousmanskaya hospital, where he worked and was receiving treatment after testing positive for coronavirus.

Shulepov was hospitalized for coronavirus on April 22, the same day he and his colleague Alexander Kosyakin posted a video online saying that Shulepov had been forced to continue working after testing positive for coronavirus.

Kosyakin had also previously criticized hospital administration for protective gear shortages on his social media and was questioned by the police for allegedly spreading fake news.

White House economic adviser says additional coronavirus stimulus package might not be necessary

Source: CNN

(CNN)White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett said that another round of coronavirus relief legislation might not be necessary, as Democrats push for Congress to provide more federal funding to cash-strapped state and local governments.

Congress has already passed trillions of dollars in unprecedented legislative relief in response to the pandemic, but the scale of the devastation that the crisis has inflicted has led lawmakers to consider another round of aid. Several states have started lifting their stay-at-home orders and reopening their economies, despite health experts advising otherwise and testing not yet being readily available.

"I think right now, because there's been good news really, that the opening up is starting to happen faster than we expected, appears to be doing so safely, then there is a chance that we won't really need a phase four," Hassett said on Fox News Saturday morning.
Negotiations are underway over a fourth stimulus package -- or "phase four" of the coronavirus response -- and Congressional Democratic leaders have made clear that a top priority for them is funding for states and localities.

Trump to travel to Arizona Honeywell facility next week amid push to lift coronavirus restrictions

Source: USA Today

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump will travel to Phoenix on Tuesday, leaving the confines of Washington for the first time in more than a month as the administration begins pushing states to ease coronavirus restrictions that have crippled the U.S. economy.

The president will visit a Honeywell aerospace facility that is expanding its production to meet the demand for the critical N-95 respirator masks needed for health care workers on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, according to White House spokesman Judd Deere.

"The visit will highlight Honeywell’s investment in critical medical equipment production within the United States and the addition of 500 manufacturing jobs in Arizona," Deere said in a statement. "President Trump and his Administration, and the Coronavirus Task Force continue to lead the fight for Arizona and the country against this invisible enemy."

The president revealed his travel plans earlier Wednesday during a roundtable discussion with business executives from companies including Hilton, Waffle House and Wynn Resorts.

Alabama to partially reopen despite rising coronavirus

Source: The Hill

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) said Tuesday that she will allow retailers, some businesses and state beaches to reopen on Thursday, despite acknowledging that Alabama’s number of COVID-19 cases is still rising.

Ivey said she will not extend the state’s expiring stay-at-home order, but will issue a new “safer at home” order, effective Thursday, that encourages, but doesn’t require, people to stay home.

Businesses will be allowed to open if they follow sanitation and social-distancing guidelines, but “higher-risk” establishments — including gyms, theaters, bowling alleys and night clubs — will remain closed. All retail stores will be able to open at a 50 percent occupancy rate.
