The Lead: Biden's Dark Closing Message

President Biden is trying to rally his party in the last few days before the midterm election, but he’s not trying to catch any flies with honey. Instead, he is going full speed ahead, attacking the opposing party. 

Former President Trump isn’t running for anything in this election, but that hasn’t stopped President Biden from playing against him. He indicated that the attack on Paul Pelosi was a political attack brought on by MAGA Republicans, even though it is not clear if the attack was political or if MAGA was the politics of the attacker. 

In a speech last night in Washington, D.C.President Biden condemned rising violence in the U.S., even though Democrats are in power and arguably should be held responsible for it. He called Republicans “dark forces” who “thirst for power.” 

The media seems to agree with him. A recent study found that the mainstream media was more likely to present negative reporting for Republicans than they were for Democrats. They were also far less interested in being critical of President Biden in the runup to his midterm elections than they were in being critical of President Trump during the runup to his midterms. 

Well That Didn't Go Over Well

The U.S. Federal Reserve raised interest rates by another 0.75% on Wednesday in order to combat inflation. 

This is the fourth straight hike at this rate. Fed Chair Jerome Powell indicated that the next hike in December could be smaller but the increases will likely continue because they just can’t get a handle on inflation. 

“The inflation picture has become more and more challenging over the course of this year, without question,” Powell said. “To the extent rates have to go higher and stay higher for longer, it becomes harder to see the path” without a recession.

The U.S. stock market was largely down on this news. 

The Bank of England is set to raise interest rates today and many expect it to be the biggest increase since 1989.

Our Hunchback Future

Could human bodies evolve because of technology addiction? A new study shows that this is a possibility. 

Overuse of the Internet could change our bodies to have hunched backs, clawed hands, and a second eyelid! The average American is online for seven hours per day. Researchers used this to render 3D models of what could happen to the human body. They say something called “tech claw” could develop from constantly holding a smartphone. That means a clawed hand and a permanently bent elbow. 

And the second eyelid? This would be your body adapting to try harder to get that blue light out of your head. 

Excuse me while I go run outside like this!

News By The Numbers

One month. That is the prison sentence for the climate activists who glued themselves to a famous Dutch painting last month. 

11. That is how many pet food bags were examined for forever chemicals by the Environmental Working Group. They found them in all the bags they studied. 

10-25. That is how many times the water you drink has been recycled through another living thing by the time we drink it in the year 2022, according to a new study from a London School of Economics professor. He calls this the piss ratio. 

Peace in Ethiopia?

A peace agreement was reached in Ethiopia between the government and the Tigray rebel group known as the TPFL. This was confirmed by Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

If the agreement is honored, it would end two years of bloody fighting in a conflict that has claimed hundreds of thousands of lives. 

Last month hundreds of thousands of people protested in Ethiopia in favor of the government and against Western intervention, which they say has supported the rebels and dragged the conflict on. The U.S. says that it supports the peace terms so hopefully that means that they will stick. We will discuss the terms and outcomes in today’s episode of Redacted with journalist Hermela Aregawi.
