Associated Press reports that the bill will now head to the Senate for approval before President Biden can sign off on it. Without the certainty of a final vote to avoid a shutdown this week, railroads will begin to halt the movement of critical materials like chemicals to clean our drinking water as soon as this weekend, Joe Biden, President of the United States, via Associated Press. Let me say that again: without action this week, disruptions to our auto supply chains, our ability to move food to tables, and our ability to remove hazardous waste from gasoline refineries will begin, Joe Biden, President of the United States, via Associated Press. According to business groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, every day that rail service was halted would deliver a $2 billion blow to the economy. . The legislation imposes a deal that was voted down by four of the 12 rail unions. . Politically powerful labor unions have criticized Biden and Democratic leaders' support for intervening in a contract dispute and blocking a strike. .

Over 50 Million Birds Killed By US Avian Flu Outbreak [Video]

Over 50 Million Birds Killed By US Avian Flu Outbreak

Over 50 Million , Birds Killed , By US Avian Flu Outbreak. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) says that more than 50 million birds have died from avian flu in 2022. BBC reports that the total of 50.54 million birds includes chickens and turkeys and surpasses the previous high set in 2015. Avian flu has struck flocks in over 40 states, more than twice the number of states in previous outbreaks. Wild birds continue to spread HPAI [highly pathogenic avian influenza] throughout the country as they migrate, so preventing contact between domestic flocks and wild birds is critical to protecting US poultry, Rosemary Sifford, USDA chief veterinary officer, via BBC. Authorities have warned that while the risk to humans remains low, safety measures should be taken near birds. On November 3, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advised Americans to take "preventative measures." . This applies not just to workplace or wildlife settings, but potentially to household settings where people have backyard flocks or pet birds with potential exposures to wild or domestic infected birds, Rosemary Sifford, USDA chief veterinary officer, via BBC. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), only 868 cases of transmission from birds to humans were recorded between 2003 and 2022. . The current outbreak has contributed to the rising price of poultry, with the American Farm Bureau saying the average price of a turkey has risen 21% compared to last year. Meanwhile, record avian flu outbreaks have also been recorded in the U.K., Europe, Africa and Asia in 2022
