Business news news latest news business updates Tucker Carlson’s college yearbook entry referenced groups that appear to be named after Harvey Milk’s killer and an anti-gay GOP senator

Business news news latest news business updates

Summary List PlacementFox News host Tucker Carlson’s college yearbook photo was circulating on Twitter this week, with some pointing out the groups listed in the entry.
Beneath Carlson’s photo and name, the entry included the “Dan White Society” and the “Jesse Helms Foundation,” implying Carlson was part of the groups.
Dan White was an American politician who assassinated San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk, California’s first openly gay elected official, in 1978. Jesse Helms was a conservative US senator who spoke out against LGBTQ rights and the civil rights movement.

Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, Carlson’s alma mater, confirmed to The Wrap that the yearbook entry was authentic. The entry can also be seen on page 186 of a digital copy of the 1991 yearbook.
Representatives for Carlson did not respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Perhaps this is the story that @TuckerCarlson was trying to get ahead of. In his college yearbook, he listed himself as a member of the “Dan White Society.”Dan White was the man who murdered Harvey Milk. pic.twitter.com/TYklyfC8tS — Travis Akers (@travisakers) April 21, 2021

 
It is unclear what exactly the “Dan White Society” or the “Jesse Helms Foundation” were, though the latter could be related to an organization founded in 1988 that is now called the Jesse Helms Center. According to their website, the group’s mission is to “promote our nation’s founding principles that Senator Jesse Helms advanced throughout his career.”
Helms was a polarizing figure in American politics. The New York Times obituary for Helms, who died in 2008, described him as “against civil rights, gay rights, foreign aid, and modern art.”
“Nothing positive is likely to happen to America if our people succumb to the drumbeats of support for the homosexual lifestyle,” Helms said, according to The Times.
Carlson’s yearbook entry also mentioned his history major and a “Christian Fellowship.”
On his show Tuesday, Carlson addressed the topic of his college yearbook and criticized a journalist from the Washington Post, as well as the outlet’s owner.
“Jeff Bezos had one of his minions, a mentally imbalanced middle-aged man called Erik Wemple, pull our dusty college yearbook and see if we’d done anything naughty at the age of 19,” he said. “That sounds like fun. Let us know if you hear any good stories.”
In 2020, Carlson criticized Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam for his own surfaced yearbook photo, calling him “Governor Klan Robes Blackface,” The Wrap reported.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Inside a $3 million doomsday condo that can sustain 75 people for 5 years

Business news news latest news business updates A Pentagon panel recommended that commanders shouldn’t get a say in whether service members are prosecuted for sexual assault

Business news news latest news business updates

Summary List PlacementRecommendations from a Pentagon commission may drastically change how the US military handles sexual assault cases, suggesting commanders stay out of decisions on whether service members should be prosecuted. 
The panel says that independent authorities — not military commanders — should be the ones to decide if service members are taken to task by the justice system. 
The Associated Press reported on Thursday that the commission was recommending that sexual harassment claims be investigated outside of the chain of command. It also proposed that if charges are deemed credible, the process to discharge a service member should begin immediately. 
In addition, the panel said victims should go through a streamlined, expedited process to obtain protection orders, and that the investigation and judicial process for sexual assault cases should follow a set timeline. 
CNN reported that the commission is helmed by Lynn Rosenthal, former White House adviser on violence against women. Twelve members sit on the commission, including prosecutors, activists, and prevention specialists.
It remains to be seen if these proposals will be taken on board, as the Washington Post reported that Pentagon leaders have been resistant to any plans that could strip commanders of their ability to discipline service members in their ranks, saying their authority could be compromised if they cannot make the final call on whether or not to prosecute cases of sexual assault.
This proposal was one of several recommendations submitted to Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Thursday, as part of an ongoing 90-day review of sexual assault in the military. Austin in February called for “outside views and ideas” to be proposed by the commission, to hold the military more accountable where sexual assault cases are concerned. 
According to the Defense Department’s annual report on sexual assault, the number of reported assaults in the military has gone up — from 4,736 cases in 2015 to 6,236 cases in 2019. 
The panel’s recommendations come a day after it was announced a US Air Force general is facing a court-martial based on charges linked to allegations of sexual assault against a civilian. Air Force Maj. Gen. William Cooley, former commander of the Air Force Research Laboratory, is the first individual in the force’s history to ever be court-martialed. He is accused of kissing and touching a civilian woman in New Mexico in 2018 without consent.
This recommendation from the Pentagon’s commission also comes one year after Spc. Vanessa Guillén went missing from a military facility in Fort Hood, Texas, in April 2020. Her body was found buried in a shallow grave along the Leon River in Texas two months later. A federal affidavit names a fellow soldier as a suspect in her death.
The Washington Post reported that Guillén had confided in her family before her death that she was being sexually harassed. 
Her death sparked a #MeToo movement in the military, where servicewomen came forward en masse with their own stories of sexual assault.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Sneaky ways Costco gets you to buy more

Business news news latest news business updates A COVID triple-mutant found in India could be much more deadly, and may be resistant to existing vaccines

Business news news latest news business updates

Summary List PlacementAs India contends with its second major wave of COVID cases and a double-mutated variant of the virus, it now faces a new threat — a triple-mutant variant. 
Scientists found two triple-mutant varieties in patient samples in four states: Maharashtra, Delhi, West Bengal, and Chhattisgarh. Researchers in the country have dubbed it the “Bengal strain” and say it has the potential to be even more infectious than the double-mutant variant. 
This is because three COVID variants have merged to form a new, possibly deadlier variant. 
The Times of India spoke to Vinod Scaria, a researcher at the CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology in India, who said that the triple mutant was also an “immune escape variant” — a strain that helps the virus attach to human cells and hide from the immune system. 
He added that it could have evolved from the double-mutant variant — which experts say is likely behind the recent surge of COVID in the country. 
Sreedhar Chinnaswamy, a researcher from the National Institute of Biomedical Genomics in India, told the Times of India that the variant also carried the E484K mutation, a characteristic found in both the South African and Brazilian variants.
“In other words, you may not be safe from this variant even if you were previously infected by another strain, or even if you have been vaccinated,” said Chinnaswamy. 
This new threat is worrying. India’s healthcare system has already reached a breaking point as it grapples with the second wave of COVID cases. Hospitals across the country are dealing with critical shortages of medical oxygen supplies. Yesterday, six hospitals in the country reportedly ran out of oxygen as the country grappled with a sudden surge in patients. 
Oxygen supplies have been diverted from shipbreaking facilities and steel plants. Still, hospitals remain overwhelmed — with some desperate families even resorting to stealing oxygen cylinders from hospitals to keep their family members alive. 
India recorded a daily high of 314,835 COVID cases on Thursday, but that worldwide record was broken within 24 hours when the country announced that it recorded 332,730 new cases and 2,263 deaths on Friday. The country now has over 16 million COVID cases, second only to the US’s record of 32 million cases. Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: Why scorpion venom is the most expensive liquid in the world
