Sacha Dench, a scientist dubbed “the human swan” for flying a paramotor—a motor-powered paraglider—in an attempt to raise awareness about climate change, has been seriously injured in a mid-air crash. Her support paramotorist, Dan Burton, was in a separate air-vehicle and was killed in the accident. They were in the final stages of a record-breaking 3,000-mile expedition around the United Kingdom, to mark an upcoming U.N. climate summit in November. Dench is in the hospital but is expected to survive. She is best known for raising awareness about declining swan populations by paramotoring from the Russian Arctic to the United Kingdom. In 2016, she set a world record, becoming the first woman to cross the English Channel by paramotor. Both Dench and Burton were said by authorities to be “highly experienced paramotorists.” An investigation into the accident is underway.Read more >Similar articles >

Early results and an exit poll show that Russia’s ruling political party will score an easy victory in parliamentary elections but likely by a smaller margin than in previous elections, with a rise in opposition showing that President Vladimir Putin’s party has lost some ground. Thirteen percent of ballots have been counted so far; an exit poll published by Russia’s RIA news agency projected that United Russia will win just over 45 percent of the vote—more than enough to hand them the win. If that number is accurate, though, it would be a more fragile result than the previous election, held in 2016, when the party nabbed 54 percent of the vote.
The elections were marred by a brutal crackdown by the Kremlin, which outlawed imprisoned opposition leader Alexei Navalny’s movement, banned his supporters from running for parliament, and labeled critical media outlets and NGOs as “foreign agents.” But United Russia was significantly weakened this cycle anyway, as allegations of ballot stuffing and fraud circulated on social media. Navalny’s allies have been outspoken in their criticism of Putin and his government regardless, going so far as to organize a tactical voting campaign in an attempt to consolidate the opposition vote.Read more >Similar articles >

More Radical Than Roe: House Abortion Bill Would Repeal Existing Laws, Prohibit Future Pro-Life Laws
- In response to pro-life policy victories like the Texas Heartbeat Act and an upcoming Supreme Court case asking the justices to provide a constitutional course correction to America’s arbitrary and unworkable abortion jurisprudence, pro-abortion legislators in Congress are advancing a deceptively named piece of legislation called the Women’s Health Protection Act. The radical, far-reaching proposal would entrench unfettered access to abortion in federal law.
- If enacted, the Women’s Health Protection Act would endanger essentially all state-level abortion restrictions, existing state and federal conscience protection laws, and various provisions limiting taxpayer funding for abortions.
- Thanks to recent reporting from The Guardian, an amicus brief filed with the Supreme Court in the Texas anti-abortion law case is getting the attention it deserves.
- However, if Roe gets overturned, Mitchell suggests that women in states that ban abortion would simply visit another state, ignoring the significant cost, hardship, and inconvenience that entails.
