Biden to sign bill to expand benefits for veterans exposed to toxic burn pits

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden will sign legislation Wednesday to expand health care benefits for veterans exposed to toxic burn pits.The bipartisan bill, known as the PACT Act, is the most significant expansion of veterans' health care and benefits in more than 30 years, a White House official said. "Sometimes military service can result in increased health risks for our veterans, and some injuries and illnesses like asthma, cancer, and others can take years to manifest," the White House said in a release. "These realities can make it difficult for veterans to establish a direct connection between their service and disabilities resulting from military environmental exposures such as burn pits — a necessary step to ensure they receive the health care they earned."Veterans who have be...

Goodell says Deshaun Watson deserves one-year ban for ‘predatory behavior’ | cleveland browns

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he feels the league needed to keep pushing for a year-long suspension for Cleveland Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson because of his “egregious” and “predatory behavior” toward women.Speaking at the owners' meetings on Tuesday, Goodell addressed the league's decision to appeal a six-game suspension given to Watson by Sue L Robinson, a former federal judge appointed by the NFL and NFL Players Association as an independent league disciplinary officer.Robinson found Watson violated the league's conduct policy after he was accused by two dozen women of sexual assault or harassment while he played for Houston. Watson has settled 23 of the 24 lawsuits filed by the women, though he has denied any wrongdoing. The league has been seeking an indefinite suspens...

China enters the graphics card market determined to put NVIDIA and AMD on the ropes

China intimidates. The time when this gigantic Asian country was limited to following at a certain distance the steps that the West was taking in the field of technology has passed to a better life. Today it is not reasonable to question scientific and technical capacity of this superpower, so its entry into a market that until now was relatively foreign to it deserves to be observed with respect. This is the context in which Biren Technology, a Chinese company that we will probably hear about frequently from now on, has announced a series of graphics cards that, on paper, look surprisingly good.

The feud between Best and Charlton that shattered Manchester United | Man Utd

When Matt Busby retired in 1969, Manchester United's three exceptional talents, three winners of the Ballon d'Or, were in decline. Bobby Charlton was 31 and age was closing in. Denis Law was 29 but had never fully recovered from his knee injury. George Best was 22 but had already won his last trophy.“I represented the future of Manchester United – or should have done,” Best acknowledged. “Charlton represented the past.” That was not simply about age; it was also about attitude. Best once said that he was “grateful” to have been born in 1946 and not 1926. “We don't have to stick rigidly to the short back and sides and wear-your-club-blazer-at-all-times routine of the past,” he said.But those were the values ​​of Bobby, who had been born in 1937. “It's a great pity,” he said in 196...
