Burnout linked to potentially lethal heart condition

Scale it back — for your heart’s sake.

Burnout is not just an inconvenience. It can lead to a critical, possibly deadly heart condition, a new study has found.

Researchers surveyed over 11,000 individuals for burnout, or “vital exhaustion,” and then tracked their development of the heart condition atrial fibrillation over the course of 25 years.

Those with the highest rate of burnout also had the highest rate of developing AFib, which causes an irregular, faster heartbeat and can lead to strokes, blood clots and other complications that may result in death, according to the findings published recently in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.

“Vital exhaustion, commonly referred to as burnout syndrome, is typically caused by prolonged and profound stress at work or home,” study author Parveen K. Garg, of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, defines in a press release. “It differs from depression, which is characterized by low mood, guilt and poor self-esteem.”

While the concept and discomfort of burnout is well known, it received added validation last May when the World Health Organization recognized “burnout syndrome” as an official medical diagnosis for the first time.

The research brings more evidence that burnout is not just a mentally debilitating state, but a physically crippling one, too.

“The results of our study further establish the harm that can be caused in people who suffer from exhaustion that goes unchecked,” says Garg.

The large study found that those with the highest vital exhaustion levels were at a 20 percent higher risk for developing AFib.

The most common form of heart arrhythmia, AFib is estimated to currently impact up to about 6 million Americans, a number expected to rise as the population ages, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2017, 166,793 death certificates mentioned the condition, which can be permanent or occur in brief episodes.

Although the study did find a link between burnout and AFib, it failed to find a connection between the heart condition and anger, anti-depressant use or poor social support.

Garg concludes his commentary on the study with a recommendation that people invest in some self-care as a preventative measure.

“The importance of avoiding exhaustion through careful attention to — and management of — personal stress levels as a way to help preserve overall cardiovascular health cannot be overstated,” he says.

Experts worry about pandemic as coronavirus numbers increase: report

Experts believe the highly transmissible coronavirus will become a pandemic as infected numbers continue to increase in China and countries around the world, according to a startling report.

A pandemic is described as a disease that spreads across a large region, across continents and even the entire globe. The coronavirus is reportedly spreading at a similar pace to influenza compared to the slow-moving SARS and MERS, according to the New York Times.

“It’s very, very transmissible, and it almost certainly is going to be a pandemic,” Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease, told the paper.

CHINA SAYS US HASN’T GIVEN ANY SIGNIFICANT HELP IN CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, CREATED PANIC: REPORT

There are now 11 confirmed cases in the U.S.

As of Monday morning, there are six in California, one in Arizona, one in Washington state, one in Massachusetts and two in Illinois. No deaths have been reported in the U.S. and 99 percent of cases still remain in China.

Three more people were announced to have been infected in California on Sunday.

“I understand that people are concerned, but based on what we know today, the risk to [the] general public remains low,” said Dr. Sara Cody, Santa Clara County’s health officer. “A second case is not unexpected. With our large population and the amount of travel to China for both personal and business reasons, we will likely see more cases.”

The U.S. announced Sunday that Americans who traveled to China within the last 14 days would be sent to designated airports for enhanced screenings. Foreign nationals who recently went to China would be denied entry, other than the immediate family of American citizens and permanent residents.

FORMER HHS SECRETARY TOM PRICE, M.D.: CORONAVIRUS – THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY

China’s Foreign Ministry said on Monday that the U.S. hasn’t given the country any substantive help in its fight against the coronavirus outbreak. They added the U.S. was contributing to the international panic surrounding the illness, according to a report by Reuters.

Three people in New York City are also being tested for the coronavirus after they made recent trips to mainland China, according to the state’s department of public health.

“We are continuing to work closely with our partners at the CDC, State, and federal government as the coronavirus situation evolves,” said Health Commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot. “If you have traveled to the area affected by the outbreak in the last 14 days and feel unwell, call your doctor or visit a clinic, and you will be cared for.”

2ND CASE OF CORONAVIRUS CONFIRMED IN BAY AREA, MARKING 9TH CASE IN US

Test results conducted by the CDC will take roughly 36-48 hours to determine if the three people in New York City were infected with the virus.

Weeks after China announced the outbreak of the coronavirus, the international community has increased measures to prevent a widespread epidemic.

The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak a global emergency as it spreads to countries outside of China and the number of infected patients continues to grow.

Countries around the globe have increased travel restrictions to the infected mainland China and Hubei province — with the U.S. State Department increasing its advisory to level 4: “Do Not Travel.”

STATE DEPARTMENT, CITING CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, RAISES CHINA TRAVEL ADVISORY: ‘DO NOT TRAVEL’

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have advised travelers to avoid all nonessential travel to the country.

Coronavirus has now infected more people in China than were sickened during the SARS outbreak in the early 2000s.

Here are the latest figures.

How many have been infected or have died?

The death toll from the virus has increased to 361 on Monday, with a total of 17,205 infected — an increase of nearly 20 percent in the last 24 hours.

The first death outside of China was recorded in the Philippines on Sunday. The 44-year-old Chinese man from Wuhan was hospitalized last week with a fever, cough and sore throat, and died after developing severe pneumonia, according to the Philippines health department.

The WHO said the number of cases will keep growing as tests are pending on thousands of suspected cases.

Where is the virus?

Roughly 99 percent of new cases have appeared in China with the vast majority of the cases in Hubei province and its provincial capital, Wuhan — the epicenter of the virus.

About 150 cases have been reported in at least 25 countries globally.

The United Kingdom announced on Friday it has two cases of the virus, who are reportedly members of the same family.

CORONAVIRUS MAY HAVE SPRUNG FROM ‘PERFECT MIXING POT,’ INFECTIOUS DISEASE DOCTOR SAYS

“The patients are receiving specialist NHS [National Health Service] care, and we are using tried and tested infection control procedures to prevent further spread of the virus,” said Chris Whitty, England’s Chief Medical Officer.

France — 6 cases

Russia — 2

Spain — 1

Thailand — 19

Australia — 12

Germany — 10

Canada — 4

Japan — 20

Malaysia — 8

South Korea — 15

Taiwan — 10

United Arab Emirates — 5

Vietnam — 8

Sri Lanka — 1

Philippines — 2 (1 death)

Nepal — 1

Finland –1

Cambodia — 1

India — 1

Singapore — 16

Italy — 2

Differences between coronavirus and the flu?

The flu has estimated to have killed roughly 10,000 to 25,000 people with nearly 19 to 26 million infected in the U.S. between October 1, 2019, and January 25, 2020, according to the CDC. Coronavirus has impacted a far lesser number, although it’s not yet clear how many have been infected or how widespread it is.

There have also been reports it can be spread without symptoms showing up. In respiratory illnesses, people with the most symptoms are the most contagious, the agency said. Children and those over 65 are the most likely to get sick from the flu, the CDC added.

HOW IS CORONAVIRUS TRANSMITTED?

Unlike the coronavirus, there’s a seasonal vaccine for the flu. People over six months out are advised by the agency to get it during annual vaccination, with certain rare exceptions, such as severe allergies to the shot.

No vaccine has been developed for coronavirus as of yet, which makes it dangerous in that respect.

What are the current travel restrictions?

The U.S. declared the coronavirus a public health emergency on Friday with Trump signing an order barring entry to foreign nationals who recently were in China, other than the immediate family of American citizens and permanent residents.

CHINA SLAMS TRUMP’S CORONAVIRUS TRAVEL LIMITS: ‘NOT A GESTURE OF GOODWILL’

Officials at the CDC have advised travelers to avoid all nonessential travel to the country. The U.S. State Department raised its China travel advisory to “Level 4: Do Not Travel.” The U.S. expanded the screening of travelers arriving from Wuhan from five to 20 airports.

“Those currently in China should consider departing using commercial means. The Department of State has requested that all non-essential U.S. government personnel defer travel to China in light of the novel coronavirus,” The advisory said.

Vietnam stopped all flights to and from China.

Japan, Singapore, Indonesia, New Zealand, and Australia all have similar policies to the U.S. on restricting non-citizens.

Mongolia and Singapore have shut their borders.

Singapore said it would ban travelers from China’s Hubei province.

Pakistan says they’re halting all flights to and from China until Feb. 2.

CORONAVIRUS DEATH IN PHILIPPINES SADI TO BE FIRST OUTSIDE CHINA

The United Kingdom and New Zealand advised their people against nonessential travel to China.

Russia has signed an order to close the border between them and China. They also blocked tour groups from China.

China has cut off access to Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, trapping more than 50 million people.

Japan bars foreign nationals who had been to Hubei province.

Carnival and Royal Carribean denying boarding of people who travel to China within 14 days.

Italy suspended all flights to China.

“I am directing all APA pilots to cease flight operations between the United States and China,” said APA president Eric Ferguson. “Until further notice, if you are scheduled, assigned, or reassigned a pairing into China, decline the assignment by calling your Chief Pilot or IOC Duty Pilot. Inform them you are declining in accordance with the CDC and WHO declarations.”

Some San Francisco 49ers fans find a Super Bowl scapegoat: the officials

Westlake Legal Group SB-21 Some San Francisco 49ers fans find a Super Bowl scapegoat: the officials fox-news/sports/nfl/san-francisco-49ers fox-news/sports/nfl/kansas-city-chiefs fox-news/sports/nfl fox-news/news-events/super-bowl fox news fnc/sports fnc Edmund DeMarche article 07b3f646-d57f-5b8a-97c8-382cc721355e

Some San Francisco 49ers fans took to social media late Sunday to vent their displeasure over what they say appeared to be missed or questionable calls by the Super Bowl LIV officials that at the minimum contributed to their team’s demise.

CHIEFS WIN SUPER BOWL LIV

The SFGate website pointed to a few calls in particular that came back to haunt the  49ers in their 31-20 loss to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas  City Chiefs in Miami Gardens.

Perhaps the most momentum-changing play was when 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo took a major hit from a Chief’s linebacker that some fans said should have been called for helmet-to-helmet contact. There was no call and the website pointed out that Mahomes, on the ensuing drive, led the Chiefs to a go-ahead touchdown.

The report also pointed out an offensive pass interference call on tight end George Kittle that turned around a 42-yard gain that would have set the 49ers up for a field goal attempt before the half.  Some on social media claimed Kittle extended his arm to create separation, but the call was nonetheless painful for 49ers fans. The NFL has been criticized for being inconsistent with the rule.

Besides those two plays, SFGate spotted a missed offside call and a handful of roughing the passer no-calls.

Despite some criticism on social media, many viewers posted congratulatory tweets for the Chiefs after they managed to climb back from a 10-point deficit against one of the league’s most formidable defenses.

Mahomes and the Chiefs were down 20-10 heading into the fourth quarter. The quarterback threw a 1-yard touchdown pass to Travis Kelce with 6:13 left to cut the score. Then, with 2:44 left, Mahomes found Damien Williams on a 5-yard touchdown pass to put the Chiefs ahead.

Williams would then put the dagger into the hearts of the 49ers with a 38-yard rushing touchdown to put the game out of reach.

It’s the first Super Bowl victory for the Chiefs in 50 years. Kansas City hadn’t won since Super Bowl IV.

Charles Robinson, an NFL columnist at Yahoo Sports, wrote an article that denied the claim that officiating cost the City by the Bay a title.

“When it was all over, the 49ers’ brief survey of the damage in their 31-20 loss told them that most of what happened Sunday night was self-inflicted,” he wrote. “Whether it was blown coverages, inopportune turnovers or simply missing game-changing opportunities (see: Garoppolo overthrowing Emmanuel Sanders late in the game), San Francisco’s deflated locker room had simply accepted the Super Bowl loss for what it was. Leading 20-10, the 49ers didn’t close the way they needed or wanted.”

Mary Anne Marsh: Brexit and impeachment outcome make for a very good day – for Putin

Westlake Legal Group AP-Brexit-Day-3 Mary Anne Marsh: Brexit and impeachment outcome make for a very good day – for Putin Mary Anne Marsh fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/politics/senate/republicans fox-news/politics/senate fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 9525d88c-3df3-5fe9-bad3-2e51036df19f

Vladimir Putin had his best day ever last Friday when he achieved two of his longest-held goals: a divided Europe and a divided United States. Putin succeeded without any shots fired or missiles launched.

After 47 years, Britain left the European Union following a 2016 referendum that passed with a slim four-point margin and a fractious debate over the last three years. The choice pitted urban vs. rural, young vs. old, white people vs. people of color, and Tories vs. Labour. The election itself was called into question with reports of Russian interference that sowed doubt about the results.

With Brexit now official, it will likely harm Britain’s economy. In fact, the referendum alone did just that, as well as reduce the country’s per capita income. As a result, Britain is weaker politically and economically.

JESSICA TARLOV: IOWA CAUCUSES EXCITING, UNPREDICTABLE – DON’T COUNT THESE CANDIDATES OUT JUST YET

Also on Friday, 51 GOP senators voted against allowing witnesses to testify before the Senate impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump, even though 72 percent of all Americans wanted witnesses, including 67 percent of Republicans. It is the first time in American history that an impeachment trial didn’t have witnesses.

As a result, Trump is likely to be acquitted later this week, even though some GOP senators are saying that his actions – withholding military aid in an effort to have Ukraine investigate a political rival – were wrong. But the senators didn’t think the actions constituted an impeachable offense, even though it is a crime to solicit foreign aid for a U.S. election. So the senators voted against calling witnesses, effectively ending the trial.

More from Opinion

Many Americans disagree with these Republican senators. In the latest Fox News poll, 50 percent of Americans think Trump should be removed from office. But it seems unlikely he will be when the Senate votes on Wednesday. As a result, the country is roiled by political divisions created by a president that hasn’t been seen since Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal.

All that makes Putin very happy.

Remember his two major goals to divide the West.

First, he hopes to increase his own power by dividing Europe, and Brexit certainly helps him in that effort. Of course, he would also love to end NATO, and many experts have pointed to  Trump’s derogatory comments about the alliance as detrimental to its unity. Withdrawal from NATO by the United States would certainly make Putin happy by further weakening Europe.

It is time to ask some hard questions of every House and Senate Republican, on the record, about their support of Trump’s conduct that led to his impeachment.

Second, Putin hopes to exacerbate divisions in the U.S. That is happening now with impeachment proceedings that will likely see Putin’s friend and ally Trump stay in office. As that process unfolds, Putin openly continues to sow discord in the 2020 election online and in our election systems, assisted by Senate Republican accomplices who refuse to pass legislation to protect our upcoming election. This is the best of all worlds for Putin.

So now what?

It is time to ask some hard questions of every House and Senate Republican, on the record, about their support of Trump’s conduct that led to his impeachment. The following questions go to the heart of the allegations against Trump, and the answers will reveal Republicans’ intentions in support of this wrongdoing:

  • Have you ever solicited, accepted or received anything of value, including donations, from a foreign government for your election?  
  • What are you doing to restore the Federal Election Commission so it can enforce campaign finance laws? 
  • Do you support security reforms to protect our elections, including 2020, from foreign interference similar to Russia’s in 2016? 
  • What are you doing to bring election security legislation passed by the House last year to a vote in the Senate? 

The answers to these questions will provide the true motivation behind Republicans’ support of Trump as well as demonstrate where their loyalties lie. Every American should want to know where each of them stands.

To understand the full import of the Senate vote last Friday consider historian Jon Meacham’s view of it:

CLICK HERE TO GET THE OPINION NEWSLETTER

Donald Trump, he said, “has such a standing with his political base that senior United States senators have decided that though he is guilty, they are not going to risk the wrath of the people in order to follow through on what is clearly spelled out in the Constitution.”

Meacham continued, “President Trump is functionally a monarch at this point. If the king does it, it’s okay. That’s what we’re seeing unfold in Washington right now.  And I think all Americans, whether you support the president or you don’t should pause significantly and think about the long-term implications of having a president who is above the law.”

Britain still has a monarchy but its future is in doubt.

The United States is barely hanging on as a republic and its future is in doubt, too.

That makes Friday one of the best days for Putin so far. And he is very happy indeed.

China says US hasn’t given any significant help in coronavirus outbreak, created panic: report

Westlake Legal Group Coronavirus-montage-thumb China says US hasn't given any significant help in coronavirus outbreak, created panic: report fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/health fnc David Aaro article 54a643e6-d548-5971-9d49-9726058dbe5f

China’s Foreign Ministry said on Monday that the U.S. has failed to give China any substantive help in its fight against the coronavirus outbreak and instead contributed to the international panic surrounding the illness, a report said.

China said it is unreasonable that the U.S. is preventing people from entering its borders, according to Reuters. The virus thus far is blamed in 361 deaths and 17,205 infections, mainly in the area around Huwan, China, the virus’ epicenter. The foreign ministry added that some countries, like the U.S., overreacted to the outbreak and Beijing hopes nations around the world begin to make reasonable, calm and science-based judgments, the report said.

“All it has done could only create and spread fear, which is a bad example,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said, according to the news agency. He said countries like the U.S. have “strong epidemic prevention capabilities and facilities,” but instead of following World Health Organization guidelines, the U.S. concentrated on travel restrictions.

Trump said in an exclusive interview with Fox News on Thursday that his administration is working closely with China during the deadly coronavirus outbreak and said the U.S. was in “great shape” thus far in dealing with the illness.

Speaking before his rally in Des Moines, Trump said he was “dealing very closely with China.”

TRUMP SAYS US WORKING CLOSELY WITH CHINA ON CORONAVIRUS

“We are in great shape. China is not in great shape right now, unfortunately. But they’re working very hard,” Trump said. “We’ll see what happens. But we’re working very closely with China and other countries.”

CHINA SLAMS TRUMP’S CORONAVIRUS TRAVEL LIMITS: ‘NOT A GESTURE OF GOODWILL’

There are now 11 confirmed cases in the U.S. as of Monday morning. although no deaths have been reported. There are six cases of infected in California, one in Arizona, one in Washington state, one in Massachusetts and two in Illinois.

The U.S. declared a public health emergency on Friday, with Trump signing an order barring entry to foreign nationals, other than the immediate family of American citizens and permanent residents who visited china within 14 days — its longest incubation period. China criticized that decision.

The State Department also issued its highest level do-not-travel advisory for China.

“Just as the WHO recommended against travel restrictions, the U.S. rushed to go in the opposite way. Certainly not a gesture of goodwill,” said Chunying.

Trump mistakenly congratulates Kansas after Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl win

President Trump late Sunday caught flack on Twitter after he mistakenly congratulated the “Great State of Kansas” after the Kansas City Chiefs, whose home field is Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., won the Super Bowl LIV.

That tweet was quickly deleted and replaced with a corrected one.

“Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on a great game and a fantastic comeback under immense pressure,” the corrected tweet reads. “We are proud of you and the Great State of Missouri. You are true Champions!”

Both cities do, however, share the same border along the Missouri River.

The Twitterverse had a field day. Stephen Miller, a podcast host,  tweeted, “Trump is going to release a map tomorrow  with Kansas City in Kansas, isn’t he?” Another user wrote,  “Make Kansas City Kansas Again!”

Comedian Gilbert Gottfried wrote, “Like  Dorothy said in The Wizard of Oz, “I don’t think we’re in Kansas anymore.'”

Man behind London stabbing spree wanted girlfriend to behead her parents, report says

The man shot dead by London police on Sunday after stabbing three people in a “terrorist-related” incident once posted messages in support of the Islamic State, justified the rape of Yazidi women and encouraged his girlfriend to behead her parents, according to a report.

Sudesh Amman, 20, is the man identified by London authorities as the attacker in the town of Streatham who had been under surveillance, Reuters reported. Authorities learned about him after he pleaded guilty in 2018 to possession of terrorist documents and sentenced to more than three years in prison.

Sudesh Amman, 20

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said measures will be introduced Monday to bring “fundamental” change to the way people convicted of terrorism offenses are handled in prison and afterward.

Reuters reported that officials looked through some of Amman’s personal devices and found the troubling messages. Among them was an eagerness to discuss with family and friends his ambition to carry out a knife attack, the report said.

Authorities said Amman made good on the goal and attacked individuals in Streatham, which is south London. A man reported by witnesses as wearing what appeared to be a suicide vest was then subsequently shot by armed officers.

Gulled Bulhan, a 19-year-old student from Streatham, told Britain’s Press Association that he witnessed the attack.

“I was crossing the road when I saw a man with a machete and silver canisters on his chest being chased by what I assume was an undercover police officer — as they were in civilian clothing,” he said.

Besides encouraging his girlfriend to behead her parents, in 2017, he reportedly used the Koran to make a case that raping a Yazidi woman is permissible. The Yazidis are a religious minority with unique beliefs that distinguish them from Muslim and Christian worshippers.

IS militants, who seized control of north Iraq in 2014, said the Yazidis were “apostates” and killed hundreds of men while enslaving thousands of women and children. The U.N. called the attacks genocide.

Bernie Sanders makes closing pitch for solidarity before Iowa caucuses

Sen. Bernie Sanders took to Twitter on the evening of the momentum-building Iowa caucuses to make a final appeal to potential supporters to join his movement that he says will fight for social causes and for “human solidarity.”

WHAT DEMS LEAD THE POLLS LEADING INTO MONDAY’S VOTE?

He made his appeal while he was either leading in polls from the state or near the top. There is reportedly some concern in the Democratic Party of the possibility of the self-described democratic socialist becoming the party’s standard-bearer. Hillary Clinton has recently been a harsh critic of her former opponent and last week claimed that Sanders did not do enough to help her unite the party in 2016 after she won the primary. Sanders’ supporters are known for their loyalty, but much of his success in 2020 will hinge on whether or not he can broaden his appeal.

CANDIDATES MAKE THEIR CLOSING ARGUMENTS

“By joining our movement, you’re joining a fight for human solidarity,” he tweeted. “You’re standing against all forms of racism, bigotry and discrimination. You’re working towards criminal justice reform, a humane immigration system and disability rights. That’s what this campaign is about.”

Perhaps Friday night’s concert for the Vermont Senator illustrates the uneasy relationship of the progressive wing of the party has with the moderates. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., according to the AP, led sustained booing from the stage at the mention of Clinton. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., another Sanders supporter, said the Democratic establishment should conform to the progressive movement, not the other way around.

“We aren’t pushing the party left,” she said. “We are bringing the party home.”

Former Secretary of State John Kerry, who is in Des Moines as a Joe Biden surrogate, was overheard in a hotel restaurant Sunday warning of the very real “possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party — down whole,” according to an NBC News report. He reportedly remarked that “maybe I’m f—ing deluding myself here,” but that he could conceivably launch a run for president now that donors “have the reality of Bernie” surging in the polls.

He later denied the report in a now-deleted profanity-laced tweet.

Clinton, for her part, also made news earlier in January when she told The Hollywood Reporter, “nobody likes” Sanders. “Nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” she claimed.

She at first didn’t say if she would support him if he were the nominee, but later responded to a backlash, clarifying she’ll do whatever she can to “support our nominee.”

Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi posts photo wearing Kaepernick shirt hours before Super Bowl

Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi on Sunday posted her support of ex-NFL star Colin Kaepernick just hours before his former team, the San Francisco 49ers, lost to the Kansas City Chiefs.

The photo was posted to her Instagram account with the caption, “Shout out to courage @kaepernick7.”

Kaepernick hasn’t played since 2016. He helped start a wave of protests about social and racial injustice that season by kneeling during the national anthem at games.

Lakshmi has more than 640,000 followers and her support seemed to divide some of her followers.

“What courage? Kneeling for the national anthem? Wearing a shirt with Fadel Castro’s picture on it? Making more money bashing the U.S. than playing football?” one person commented.

“Yasssss queen‼️” another supporter wrote. “I’ve been rockin’ my 7 [Kaepernick’s number] tee‼️”

Back in November, it appeared Kaepernick was making a comeback, but his representatives called an audible less than an hour before he was scheduled to work out for 25 NFL teams, moving the workout from the Atlanta Falcons training facility in Flowery Branch, to a high school football field in Riverdale, Ga.

“What is courage, when the name on your shirt wants so bad back into the NFL, and then changes the workout venue at the last minute when coaches are waiting to see him?” a user said in reference to the workout change.

Other people commenting on Lakshmi’s post described it as “Awesome” and “very lovely,” while another said, “Sorry gotta disagree with you on this” — attached with a thumb down emoji.

Last February, the NFL settled a collusion grievance filed by the quarterback.

The 49ers lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV on Sunday.
