Queen Elizabeth II beloved by U.S. Presidents

After 70 years on the throne, Queen Elizabeth II dead at 96

The longest-reigning monarch in British history, Queen Elizabeth II, met with 15-British Prime Minister’s, seven Roman Catholic Popes, and 13 sitting U.S. presidents during her lifetime.

She especially struck a string of cordial relationships that helped strengthen the ties between American and the United Kingdom.

She died Thursday at age 96.

According to Harry Truman, she “captured the hearts” of the American public.

Former President Barack Obama called her “truly one of my favorite people.”

Among the last 14 presidents, Lyndon Johnson is the only one whom she did not meet.

Awarded a medal by Elizabeth’s father, King George VI, for his work as an allied commander during World War II, Dwight Eisenhower welcomed her to the United States during her first “official” visit as Queen in 1957.

President Joe Biden and the First Lady Jill said in a statement released by the White House that “Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was more than a monarch. She defined an era.”

“In a world of constant change, she was a steadying presence and a source of comfort and pride for generations of Britons, including many who have never known their country without her,” the Bidens said.

“An enduring admiration for Queen Elizabeth II united people across the Commonwealth. The seven decades of her history-making reign bore witness to an age of unprecedented human advancement and the forward march of human dignity.”

TikTok implements stricter guidelines on weight-loss drug promotion

Published

on

TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

With over 170 million users in the US, the app aims to prevent the spread of potentially harmful content related to rapid weight loss.

Starting in May, TikTok will prohibit influencers from posting “before-and-after” photos and restrict minors from accessing weight-loss content deemed risky. The crackdown extends to any content promoting drastic weight loss methods, aiming to combat the promotion of unrealistic body standards.

However, some influencers, like Dave Knapp and Kim Carlos, criticise the move, arguing it discriminates against those with health conditions. Others fear losing their income as TikTok takes down their content, prompting concerns about the platform’s future amid potential US bans.

As TikTok enforces stricter guidelines, influencers may seek alternative platforms to share weight-loss content. Despite the popularity of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, the crackdown reflects growing concerns about the impact of such promotions on user health.
