Japan train rider pressed emergency button after passenger coughed with no mask amid coronavirus outbreak

A coughing fit by a train passager led to a delay in Japan – all because of the coronavirus.

A passenger managed to bring a subway train in the city of Fukuoka to a halt earlier this week after complaining about a fellow rider who was hacking away.

“There’s a person coughing and they’re not wearing a mask,” the Fukuoka City Transportation Bureau recalled the man saying after he pressed an emergency button, according to The Mainichi newspaper.

The train reportedly was delayed for three minutes before continuing its journey. The two passengers, the newspaper says, reconciled after the train pulled into a stop.

“We’d like to ask people to refrain from pushing the emergency notification button just because there is someone without a mask,” a Bureau official told The Mainichi newspaper. “We’re calling on passengers to show proper manners when they cough and want to publicize this more.”

More than 75,000 people worldwide are infected with the novel virus, now known as COVIS-19, according to Thursday estimates. Some 2,130 people have died.

In Japan, there are 727 cases of coronavirus, including 364 from a cruise ship docked in Yokohama. There have been 3 deaths, according to Thursday estimates.

Henninger argues socialist Bernie Sanders’ ‘vulnerabilities’ were exposed during Las Vegas debate

Westlake Legal Group Bernie-Sanders-Debate-Logo Henninger argues socialist Bernie Sanders' 'vulnerabilities' were exposed during Las Vegas debate Joshua Nelson fox-news/shows/americas-newsroom fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 88cc74f3-1e00-5eff-baea-83635497c46d

Fox News’ contributor Dan Henninger said Sen. Bernie Sanders’ weaknesses were on full display during the 2020 Democratic presidential debate last night in Las Vegas.

“I think some real Sanders’ vulnerabilities were opened up in that debate,” Henninger told “America’s Newsroom.” “Mike Bloomberg cited the fact that capitalism isn’t going away in this country made Bernie, frankly, say I am a Democratic-Socialist. Flat-out.”

AFTER EVENING RALLYING BASE IN PHOENIX, TRUMP JOINS DEMS IN PILING ON BLOOMBERG

Bloomberg said that Sanders’ failure to address the $25 trillion hole in his health care plan, pointed out by former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, was another “vulnerability.”

Furthermore, Henninger said Sanders’ vow to “ban fracking,” followed up by his assertion that workers in the fracking industry will just have to “get over it” hurts his candidacy.

“How is that going to play with those people that have jobs related to the energy industry in the Midwest?” Henninger asked.

Sanders also defended his label of being a Democratic socialist on Wednesday night at the Democratic debate in Nevada. The progressive senator has been enjoying a surge in the polls in recent weeks, including an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Tuesday that showed him with a national double-digit lead — 27 percent of support, which is well ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who earned just 15 and 14 percent, respectively.

During the debate, NBC News moderator Lester Holt asked Sanders about the poll result.

“Our latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released yesterday — two-thirds of all voters said they were uncomfortable with a socialist candidate for president. What do you say to those voters, sir?” Holt asked.

“What was the result of that poll?” Sanders countered. “Who was winning?”

Some in the audience applauded Sanders for challenging the question.

“The question is to you,” Holt continued.

“Well, the question was, ‘Was I winning’ — and I think by a fairly comfortable margin — might mention that,” Sanders added.

Kate Middleton recalls ‘terrifying’ moment she showed Prince George to the world for the first time

Kate Middleton is opening up about how scary it was to debut Prince George to the world for the first time.

The Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to her first child on July 22, 2013. Hours later, she felt it was her responsibility to show the newborn to the public that was eagerly waiting to lay eyes on the future King of England.

“It was terrifying. Slightly terrifying, I’m not going to lie,” Middleton explained during an appearance on the “Happy Mum Happy Baby” podcast.

KATE MIDDLETON ADMITS SHE SOMETIMES HAS ‘MOM GUILT,’ REFLECTS ON HER OWN CHILDHOOD IN RARE INTERVIEW

“It’s hard to decompartmentalize,” she added. “Because, you know, everyone had been so supportive.”

She explained that she felt obligated to reward the general public for showing her and husband, Prince William, support during a difficult pregnancy that saw her hospitalized for days. However, she also explained that she had all the fears of a protective new mom at the time.

“This was something that sort of everyone was excited about. And we’re hugely grateful for the support that the public has shown us and for us to be able to share that joy and appreciation with the public, I felt was really important,” she told the host. “But equally it was coupled with a newborn baby and sort of inexperienced parents and the uncertainty of what that held. So there was all sorts of mixed emotions.”

PRINCE WILLIAM, KATE MIDDLETON TO TAKE ROYAL BREAK TO SPEND TIME WITH KIDS

The tension was broken when it came time to get Prince George into a car seat while the world’s cameras flashed. William had a difficult time securing the baby but ultimately got the job done.

“It was quite hard to do that, I think, on the world’s stage,” Middleton said while laughing. “But no, he did a very good job.”

Middleton noted that she was eager to get back home after being stuck in the hospital for so long. However, she soon learned that there was no returning to normal once she’d had a child.

“I totally underestimated the impact and the change it had on our lives from that moment, really,” she concluded. “Unless you’ve got children, you don’t realize that no amount of preparation can get you ready for that moment.”

Heart attack survivor Bernie Sanders praises ‘free market ‘ health care system that he wants to abolish

Westlake Legal Group Bernie-Sanders-Dem-Debate-AP Heart attack survivor Bernie Sanders praises 'free market ' health care system that he wants to abolish Matt London fox-news/topic/fox-nation-opinion fox-news/politics/regulation/health-care fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/person/bernie-sanders fox-news/opinion fox-news/fox-nation fox news fnc/media fnc dac07892-e733-54bf-8c79-e61cb53a9ea3 article

On the debate stage in Las Vegas on Wednesday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., praised the same private health care system that he proposes to abolish, and on Fox Nation, he was called out for it.

“Thank you, Las Vegas, for the excellent medical care I got in the hospital for two days,” said the 78-year-old senator of the treatment he received at the Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center in Nevada, after suffering a heart attack on Oct 1.

“What I really liked was he thanked the health care system of Nevada, which saved his life, which is a private health care system,” said Brad Blakeman, a Republican consultant and former George H.W. Bush staffer, on Fox Nation’s live coverage of the debate in Las Vegas.

Sanders’ proposed Medicare-for-all plan would abolish almost all private health insurance coverage and create a national insurance program to provide health care coverage to all Americans.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has said that the overhaul would create a “risk” for patients. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Administrator Seema Verma said that the proposal amounts to “the biggest threat to the American health care system,” claiming the policy would lead to worse care and longer wait times.

“He had the best of the best. Why? Because it’s a free-market system,” continued Blakeman. “You go to DMV… that’s what I’m calling Medicare-for-all. If you like, going to the DMV, you’re going to love Medicare-for-all.”

Sanders’ plan has also received pushback from unions, including the Culinary Union Local 226, which represents around 60,000 housekeepers, porters, bartenders, and other workers in Las Vegas’ casinos.

The union reportedly distributed leaflets that claimed Sanders’ plan would “end culinary health care,” and arguing that “presidential candidates suggesting forcing millions of hardworking people to give up their health care creates unnecessary division between workers.”

Nationally syndicated radio host and Fox News Contributor Richard Fowler said that Sanders did not seem to be able to answer the most pressing questions about his plan on the debate stage.

“He was pushed on health care, not only by the moderators, but he was pushed on health care by Mayor Pete [Buttigieg], he was pushed on health care by Joe Biden, he was pushed on health care by Amy Klobuchar and he really… didn’t seem to have answers,” said Fowler.

Fmr. House Speaker John Boehner: Dems have a ‘serious problem’ with division in their party

The Democratic Party has a “serious problem” in the increasing divide between its progressive and practical wings, which will be made apparent in the 2020 presidential election, former Republican House Speaker John Boehner said Thursday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, as well as former Democratic caucus chairman Joe Crowley of New York, Boehner said that he was not surprised by the conduct of the Democratic candidates in the ninth presidential debate in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

BLOOMBERG UNDER SIEGE AT CHAOTIC DEBATE DEBUT, AS WARREN ATTACKS FIELD IN BID TO REVIVE CAMPAIGN

The Democrats came out swinging and most fists made contact with former three-term New York City mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who made his debate debut.

Bloomberg has been under fire over the last two weeks despite climbing in the polls. Between his newly unearthed comments on farmers and the controversial stop-and-frisking policing policy and his ongoing Twitter battle with President Trump, voters weren’t sure what to expect from the candidate.

But, it was likely not that.

“The mayor hasn’t been in the pit like these other candidates have been over the last year or so. And, it’s probably about what, eight [or] nine years, since he’s been involved actively?” Boehner stated. “So, he wasn’t on his game.”

“I think they knew going into this debate they were heading into a buzzsaw and they met the buzzsaw head-on,” Crowley remarked, although noting that Bloomberg seemed to “rebound” toward the end of the debate.

“I think folks …are really concerned about the nature of the debate itself,” he added. “It got almost like a food fight at one point and I don’t think any of us looked very good at that point. But, this is a way to go still.”

Boehner told the “Friends” couch that the Democratic Party is in serious trouble.

“You’ve got the whole progressive wing represented by Bernie and Elizabeth Warren and then you’ve got what I’ll call the more practical wing with Mayor Pete and Bloomberg, Biden, Klobuchar … and this continues to grow,” he explained.

“At one point, they’re going to have to have a nominee and whoever that nominee is is going to have a hard time bringing the party back together,” said Boehner.

“As a matter of fact, Donald Trump won in 2016 because a lot of Bernie supporters did not show up to vote for Hillary Clinton. You’re going to have the same problem in this election,” he predicted.

À la Hillary Clinton, Bloomberg brags about closing coal-fired power plants, likely eliminating jobs

Westlake Legal Group Bloomberg-Hillary-Clinton-AP À la Hillary Clinton, Bloomberg brags about closing coal-fired power plants, likely eliminating jobs Matt London fox-news/us/environment/climate-change fox-news/us/energy fox-news/topic/fox-nation-opinion fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics fox-news/opinion fox-news/fox-nation fox news fnc/media fnc c0ff8420-031a-5aed-8ad4-d8cba9499e5c article

Billionaire Mike Bloomberg appeared to take a page out of Hillary Clinton’s playbook on Wednesday night during the ninth Democratic presidential debate when he bragged about his role in shutting down hundreds of American coal-fired power plants.

“Already we’ve closed 304 out of the 530 coal-fired power plants in the United States, and we’ve closed 80 out of the 200 or 300 that are in Europe, Bloomberg philanthropies working with the Sierra Club,” said Bloomberg, boasting about the impact of his multimillion-dollar contribution to the “Beyond Coal” initiative.

“That reminded me of Hillary Clinton in 2016, saying I’m going to do away with these coal jobs.  That did not sell in the middle of this country,” said Fox News co-anchor Ed Henry on Fox Nation’s live coverage of the debate in Las Vegas.

LIMITED TIME ONLY! RECEIVE A FREE COPY OF MARTHA MACCALLUM’S NEW BOOK WITH ANY YEARLY FOX NATION PLAN

“No, and it’s not going to [sell] again,” agreed Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren, who was reporting live from the debate venue at the Paris Las Vegas hotel and casino.

In March 2016, at a Democratic town hall in Ohio, Clinton said, “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”

In her 2017 memoir, “What Happened,” which detailed her failed 2016 presidential campaign, Clinton argued that her “coal miners” comment was taken out of context and that she was “intensely concerned about the impact on families and communities that had depended on coal jobs for generations.”

“It wasn’t just Bloomberg,” added Tomi. “They’re all talking about some form of cutting off jobs.”

For example, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., stood behind his calls for a ban on federal agencies issuing new permits for fracking of oil and gas.

“I think what was actually really interesting … was that the United States had the sharpest decline in emissions of any other nation. And we did that without a government mandate,” said Lahren. “We did it without some phony-baloney Paris Climate Accord.”

Last week, the International Energy Agency announced that the U.S. led the world in reducing carbon emission from energy, in absolute terms, in 2019.  The U.S. produced 140 million fewer tons of carbon emissions, while the output of the rest of the world grew by nearly 400 million tons, mostly driven by developing countries in Asia.

THE CHART THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN SHOULD BE ‘PLASTERING ABSOLUTELY EVERYWHERE’: DEIRDRE BOLTON

“So it just goes to show that what we’re doing through innovation, capitalism, the free marketplace and through freedom is actually what’s going to save the environment, not these government mandates,” continued Lahren.

“They really do need to answer to the people in the middle of this country,” concluded Lahren, “especially those people that were Democrats who voted for Donald Trump… to be able to sustain a high-paying job and a lifestyle that they’ve had for generations, and these people would cut that off from them in the name of climate change and tree-hugging. And I think that they really need to answer for it.”

Texas man calls 911 after being impaled by two-inch fence post during car crash, reports say

A Texas man who was critically injured when he veered off the road after crashing into a deer was able to phone 911 himself despite being impaled by a two-inch metal rod, according to reports.

Jake Tabor, 25, was driving to work in Willis, just 50 miles north of Houston, on Tuesday at around 4 a.m. when he struck a deer on Highway 75 north near Sheperd Hill Road and lost control of his car, KHOU reported.

FLORIDA POLICE INVESTIGATE AFTER ‘SEVERA; TONGUES PRESERVED IN JARS FOUND IN CRAWL SPACE: REPORTS 

Tabor, a pipefitter, crashed into a fence and was impaled in the abdomen by a two-inch pole.

He was able to call 911 himself and when first responders arrived, they found him conscious.

“We have a thing called the golden hour. In the golden hour, you want to get him extricated (and) get him to the hospital as quickly as possible to prevent any life-threatening injuries,” North Montgomery County Fire Department Battalion Chief Bill Derks told KHOU.

3 TEENS KILLED IN MAINE AFTER UNLICENSED RIVER, 16, SKIDS OFF ROAD AND SLAMS INTO TREE

But it took firefighters 30 minutes to get Tabor out of the truck as they were forced to cut the fence off to get access to him.

“If someone were to move that pole or take it out of his chest, it would cause a major loss in blood,” Derks said.

According to a GoFundMe page, Tabor underwent surgery and is now in stable condition but is expected to have several more surgeries to “reconstruct several organs that were damaged from the fence post.”

Tabor, a father of two, is said to be in ICU, where he will remain for some time as he faces at least six months of recovery.

His wife said that the rod just barely missed his heart.

Whereas we showed last night in the Bernie Sanders movement that we have the most diverse, multigenerational, multiclass, multiracial coalition that is going to bring new voters into the process while at the same time, taking any voters away from President Trump,” Zahn said.

As the candidates targeted debate stage newcomer Michael Bloomberg, President Trump stoked his base in a raucous “Keep America Great” rally in Phoenix Wednesday night, before joining the attacks on the former New York City mayor.

Trump later joined the chorus of attacks against Bloomberg, who has spent over $400 million on his campaign, over how the Democrat performed in the biggest moment of his quest for the White House so far.

In an explosive moment during the Las Vegas debate, attendees cheered when Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., called on Bloomberg to release women from nondisclosure agreements they have signed concerning their civil complaints that he harassed them in the workplace.

“I think Bloomberg proved that he is not ready for the primetime last night,” Zahn said.

Artificial intelligence spotted 11 ‘potentially hazardous’ asteroids that NASA missed

An asteroid hitting Earth is one of humanity’s greatest existential threats, making it imperative that asteroid detection is a vital task for government space agencies around the world. Using advanced artificial intelligence, researchers in the Netherlands have discovered several “potentially hazardous objects” that were not spotted by humans.

The research, published in Astronomy & Astrophysics, looked at space objects more than 100 meters in diameter that were likely to come within 4.7 million miles of Earth. The AI ran simulations 10,000 years into the future and discovered 11 asteroids that are not on NASA’s list of “potentially hazardous” near-Earth objects.

“The resulting instrument, named the Hazardous Object Identifier (HOI), was trained on the basis of an artificial set of known impactors which were generated by launching objects from Earth’s surface and integrating them backward in time,” the researchers wrote in the study’s abstract. “HOI was able to identify 95.25 [percent] of the known impactors simulated that were present in the test set as potential impactors. In addition, HOI was able to identify 90.99 [percent] of the potentially hazardous objects identified by NASA, without being trained on them directly.”

POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS ASTEROID THAT ZIPPED PAST EARTH HAS ITS OWN ‘MOON’

“Potentially hazardous” NEOs (Near Earth Objects) are defined as space objects that come within 0.05 astronomical units and measure more than 460 feet in diameter, according to NASA.

One of the study’s co-authors, astronomer and simulation expert Simon Portegies Zwart, said that now that the method works, further research is needed.

“We now know that our method works, but we would certainly like to delve deeper in the research with a better neural network and with more input,” Zwart said in a statement. “The tricky part is that small disruptions in the orbit calculations can lead to major changes in the conclusions.”

According to a 2018 report put together by Planetary.org, there are more than 18,000 NEOs.

NASA has been preparing for planetary defense from asteroid strikes for years. A recent survey showed that Americans prefer a space program that focuses on potential asteroid impacts over sending humans back to the moon or to Mars.

In April 2019, NASA awarded a $69 million contract to SpaceX, the space exploration company led by Elon Musk, to help it with asteroid deflection via its DART mission.

MILE-LONG ASTEROID COULD BE DANGEROUS TO LIFE ON EARTH IN MILLIONS OF YEARS IF IT BREAKS UP: SCIENTISTS

NASA has recently expanded its planetary defense protocols, including last year’s unveiling of a bold new plan to protect Earth. In June 2018, NASA unveiled a 20-page plan that details the steps the U.S. should take to be better prepared for NEOs such as asteroids and comets that come within 30 million miles of the planet.

Lindley Johnson, NASA’s planetary defense officer, said at the time that the country “already has significant scientific, technical and operational capabilities” to help with NEOs, but implementing the new plan would “greatly increase our nation’s readiness and work with international partners to effectively respond should a new potential asteroid impact be detected.”

In addition to enhancing NEO detection, tracking and characterizing capabilities and improving modeling prediction, the plan also aims to develop technologies for deflecting NEOs, increasing international cooperation and establishing new NEO impact emergency procedures and action protocols.

ANCIENT ASTEROID STRIKES ON MARS MAY HAVE ‘PRODUCED KEY INGREDIENTS FOR LIFE’

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine has warned that an asteroid strike is not something to be taken lightly and is perhaps Earth’s biggest threat.

“We have to make sure that people understand that this is not about Hollywood, it’s not about movies,” Bridenstine said at the International Academy of Astronautics’ 2019 Planetary Defense Conference in College Park, Md., according to Space.com. “This is about ultimately protecting the only planet we know right now to host life, and that is the planet Earth.”
