EU approves Danish vaccine to treat Monkeypox



A Danish company has been given the green light by the EU to market its vaccine as an effective treatment for Monkeypox

Danish company “Bavarian Nordic” says the European Commission has given it permission to market its vaccine as an effective Monkeypox treatment.

The USA and Canada had already granted permission for it to be used.

The European Union had – until now – only allowed the Imvantex vaccine to be officially allowed to be marketed as a smallpox treatment.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the most recent cases were being detected among gay and bisexual men and men who have sex with men.

The vaccine had already been supplied to several European countries for official “off-label” use.

The World Health Organisation announced in recent days that Monkeypox was a global health emergency and raised it to the WHO’s highest level of alert over the weekend.

But he also cautioned against stigma,

Over 2200 monkeypox cases have already been identified in the United Kingdom.

The UK has already begun rolling out pop up vaccine centres in several locations to populations most at risk.

Around 98 per cent of identified cases in the UK are among gay and bisexual men, as well as men who have sex with men.

It is being distributed via sexual health clinics.

It is important to recognise that just one or two genital or anal lesions, or lesions in the mouth, can be signs of monkeypox, especially if you have had a new sexual partner.

Monkeypox is not strictly a sexually transmitted disease – requiring only physical contact or prolonged close proximity.

According to one recent study by researches at the Queen Mary University in London, sexual transmission is the largest factor.

But it can be transmitted via touch, droplets, or even coming into contact with surfaces that an infected person has touched.

Parents buying houses for their adult children



Rise in parents purchasing homes for adult children sparks concerns

A growing trend of parents buying houses for their adult children is causing a stir, raising questions about the potential downsides of such arrangements. While the gesture may seem benevolent, experts warn of the pitfalls associated with this practice.

Financial advisors express concerns about the impact on both generations’ financial independence. By providing ready-made homes, parents might inadvertently hinder their children’s ability to learn crucial financial lessons, such as budgeting, mortgage management, and property ownership responsibilities.

The trend also sparks debates on the long-term implications for the housing market. Critics argue that such parental interventions can distort property prices and exacerbate existing affordability challenges, particularly for younger individuals aspiring to enter the property market independently.

There’s a call for a broader societal discussion on the balance between parental support and fostering financial autonomy. While the intention is often rooted in care, the unintended consequences of sheltering adult children from financial realities are prompting a reassessment of this well-meaning practice.

Victoria’s Secret criticized for trans woman’s apology



Victoria’s Secret is facing backlash after issuing an apology to a transgender woman who had a negative experience while trying on bras at one of their stores.

The incident has ignited a debate about inclusivity and sensitivity in the fashion industry.

The controversy began when the trans woman, who remains anonymous, visited a Victoria’s Secret store to shop for bras. She reported feeling uncomfortable and discriminated against by store staff.

In response to her complaint, Victoria’s Secret issued an apology, acknowledging the incident and expressing their commitment to diversity and inclusion.

However, the apology itself has come under fire from both supporters and critics.

Some argue that the brand’s apology is insincere and merely an attempt to save face, while others believe it is a step in the right direction towards a more inclusive shopping experience for all customers.

The incident raises important questions about how brands should handle situations involving discrimination and whether their apologies are genuine or performative.

It also highlights the ongoing challenges faced by transgender individuals when accessing spaces traditionally designed for cisgender customers.

As the fashion industry continues to evolve, many are calling for a deeper examination of inclusivity and sensitivity, not just in policies but in practice.
