The Curious Case Of The Furious Mutton Handi

Weekend Stories by Trishikh

Quaintly nestled in a fairytale valley amidst the lofty mountains of the mighty Himalayan range, in the backdrop of the mystic snowcapped peak of Mount Kanchenjunga glittering towards the pristine cerulean sky, stood an old and beautiful Anglican Boarding School, in the Darjeeling district of India’s West Bengal state. It was a magical land where one could touch the moist ivory clouds during the day and wonder at the beauty of a million dazzling stars brightly lit up across the night sky.

Established sometime in the sixth decade of the nineteenth century, with only thirty-one boarders and a few day scholars, now in the year 1980, around 600 students walked the stone halls of this historic educational institute.

Violência Contra a Mulher comigo!

Não existe justificativa para a violência contra a mulher. Normalmente, essa é uma a condição que buscar punir, limitar e condicionar a mulher em nossa sociedade.

in the coming weeks, 1.1 million doses of the Jynneos monkeypox vaccine will have been made available to Americans.

“HHS is working to make these doses available to states and jurisdictions as soon as possible,” Becerra said in a press release. “This action by the FDA is a critical step forward in our plans to strengthen and accelerate our monkeypox response, which includes distributing a safe and effective vaccine to those at highest risk of exposure to monkeypox.”

The Biden administration now expects to begin a Covid-19 booster campaign with retooled vaccines in September because Pfizer and Moderna have promised that they can deliver doses by then, according to people familiar with the deliberations.

With updated formulations apparently close at hand, federal officials have decided against expanding eligibility for second boosters of the existing vaccines this summer. The new versions are expected to perform better against the now-dominant Omicron subvariant BA.5, although the data available so far is still preliminary.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) is facing backlash after bullying and body-shaming a teenager from Houston. His remarks toward the activist came after she responded to other controversial remarks the Republican congressman made about abortion rights activists at a Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Tampa, Florida, on Saturday.

“Why is it that the women with the least likelihood of getting pregnant are the ones most worried about having abortions?” the congressman asked the audience during the event. “Nobody wants to impregnate you if you look like a thumb.”

“These people are odious from the inside out. They’re…
