Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who banned smoking in bars and restaurants during his first term, has dismissed cries that New York is crossing a line by trying to legislate diets

The board was poised on Tuesday to make New York the nation’s first city to crack down on the unhealthy oils, though it’s expected to give restaurants a slight break by relaxing what had been considered a tight deadline for 평창출장안마 compliance.

The restaurant industry argued that it was unrealistic to give eateries six months to replace cooking oils and shortening and 18 months to phase out the ingredients altogether.

«We hope that the board of health will have significantly changed the original proposal, taking into consideration the concerns raised by 24,000 restaurateurs in New York City,» said Sue Hensley, spokeswoman for the National Restaurant Association.

Trans fats are believed to be harmful because they contribute to heart disease by raising bad cholesterol and lowering good cholesterol at the same time. Some experts say that makes trans fats worse than saturated fats.

A common form of trans fats is partially-hydrogenated vegetable oil, which is used for frying and baking and also turns up in processed foods like cookies, pizza dough and crackers. Trans fats, which are favored because of their long shelf life, are also found in pre-made blends like pancake and hot chocolate mix.

The FDA estimates the average American eats 4.7 pounds of trans fats each year.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who banned smoking in bars and restaurants during his first term, has dismissed cries that New York is crossing a line by trying to legislate diets.

«Nobody wants to take away your french fries and hamburgers — I love those things too,» he said recently. «But if you can make them with something that is less damaging to your health, we should do that.»

Many food makers have stopped using trans fats on their own, after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration began requiring companies to list trans fat content on labels.

Fast-food restaurants and other major chains are particularly interested in the board’s decision on Tuesday because a trans-fat ban wouldn’t just involve substituting one ingredient for another. In addition to overhauling recipes, they would have to disrupt nationwide supply operations and try to convince customers that the new french fries and doughnuts will taste just as good as the originals.

McDonald’s Corp. has been quietly experimenting with more than a dozen healthier oil blends in some of its U.S. restaurants, but still has not committed to a full switch. At an investor conference last month, CEO Jim Skinner said the company is making «very good progress,» at developing an alternative, and vowed to be ready for a New York City ban.

Wendy’s International Inc. introduced a zero-trans fat oil in August and Yum Brands Inc.’s KFC and Taco Bell said they too will cut the trans fats from their kitchens.

Taco Bell worked for more than two years to find a substitute, conducting blind consumer taste tests and extensive research, the company said.

Chicago is also considering its own trans fat law, which wouldn’t ban them outright but would severely restrict the amount that kitchens can use. The measure would apply only to large restaurants, defined as those that make more than $20 million in sales per year.

New York’s move to ban trans fats has mostly been applauded by health and medical groups, although the American Heart Association warns that if restaurants aren’t given ample time to make the switch, they could end up reverting to ingredients high in saturated fat, like palm oil.By Sara Kugler

Mom who couldn’t see dying son due to travel ban granted waiver

A Yemeni mother who was denied entry to the U.S. under a controversial travel ban has been granted a visa and a travel waiver, the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) told CBS News.

CAIR had called for authorities to swiftly issue the visa to Shaima Swileh, 군산출장안마 a Yemeni national living in Egypt, so she can see her 2-year-old son Abdullah Hassan one last time.

The child, a U.S. citizen, has been on life support at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland for the past month. He was born with a brain condition that caused weekly seizures, according to his father, Ali Hassan. The Trump administration’s travel ban, which applies to travelers from mostly Muslim majority nations, has been keeping Swileh from entering the U.S. — «literally separating family from each other,» according to Hassan.

«I’m literally seeing my son dying in front of my eyes,» Hassan told CBS News’ Mireya Villarreal.

Hassan is a U.S. citizen living in Stockton, California. His son was born in Yemen and later became a U.S. citizen. In October, Hassan brought his son from Cairo to the U.S. for medical treatment. That was the last time the toddler saw his mother.

Doctors have indicated the child may not be able to survive on life support much longer.

CAIR told CBS News’ Villarreal that Swileh has been granted a visa for relatives of U.S. citizens and a travel ban waiver. The family was notified early Tuesday.

The travel ban includes certain exemptions and allows for waiver applications for undue hardship if entry is denied, if the admission is in the national interest and won’t pose a national security risk, according to the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

The visa Swileh was issued will allow her to stay in the U.S. regardless of what happens to the boy and continue with the process of becoming a citizen, Villarreal reports.

«It’s not a magic bullet, but a potentially important intervention,» agreed Dr

The National Institutes of Health said Wednesday it closed the studies in Kenya and Uganda early, when safety monitors took a look at initial results this week and spotted the protection. The studies’ uncircumcised men are being offered the chance to undergo the procedure.

The link between male circumcision and HIV prevention was noted as long ago as the late 1980s. The first major clinical trial, of 3,000 men in South Africa, found last year that circumcision cut the HIV risk by 60 percent.

Still, many AIDS specialists had been awaiting the NIH’s results as a final confirmation.

«Male circumcision can lower both an individual’s risk of infection, and hopefully the rate of HIV spread through the community,» said AIDS expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

But it is not perfect protection, Fauci stressed. Men who become circumcised must not quit using condoms nor take other risks — and circumcision offers no protection from HIV acquired through anal sex or injection drug use, he noted.

«It’s not a magic bullet, but a potentially important intervention,» agreed Dr. Kevin De Cock of the World Health Organization.

Male circumcision is common at birth in the United States. But in sub-Saharan Africa, home to more than half of the world’s almost 40 million HIV-infected people, there are large swaths of populations where male circumcision is rare.

The WHO plans an international meeting early next year to discuss the studies’ results and 수원출장안마 how to translate them into policies that promote safe male circumcision — done by trained health workers with sterile equipment — while teaching men that it will not make them invulnerable.

If male circumcision were widely adopted, officials predicted that could help to avert tens of thousands of HIV infections in coming years; Fauci cited one model from South Africa that suggested possibly up to 2 million infections could be averted over a decade.

«This is tremendous news, and it could help millions of men while in turn reducing the risk faced by millions of women,» said Paul Zeitz of the Global AIDS Alliance.

Why would male circumcision play a role? Cells in the foreskin of the penis are particularly susceptible to the HIV virus, Fauci explained. Also, the foreskin is more fragile than the tougher skin surrounding it, providing a surface that the virus could penetrate more easily.

Researchers enrolled 2,784 HIV-negative men in Kisumu, Kenya, and 4,996 HIV-negative men in Rakai, Uganda, into the studies. Some were circumcised; others were just monitored.

Over two years, 22 of the circumcised Kenyans became infected with HIV compared with 47 uncircumcised men, a 53 percent reduction. In Uganda, 22 circumcised men became infected vs. 43 of the uncircumcised, a 48 percent reduction.

The researchers are offering all of the studies’ uncircumcised men the chance to undergo the procedure, and 80 percent of the uncircumcised Ugandans already have agreed, said lead researcher Ronald Gray of Johns Hopkins University.

Side effects were rare, including some mostly mild infections that were easily treated. The rate of side effects was comparable to those seen in circumcised U.S. infants, said Robert Bailey of the University of Illinois at Chicago, who led the Kenyan trial.

brother, Bubba Hiers, saying she suffered from sexual harassment and racially offensive talk and employment practices that were unfair to black workers during her five years as a manager of Uncle Bubba’s Seafood and Oyster House. The dismissal deal came less than two weeks after Judge William T. Moore dismissed the race discrimination claims, ruling Jackson, who is white, had no standing to sue over what she said was poor treatment of black workers. He let Jackson’s claims of sexual harassment stand, but those were dropped in the deal between the lawyers. «While this has been a difficult time for both my family and myself, I am pleased that the judge dismissed the race claims and I am looking forward to getting this behind me, now that the remaining claims have been resolved,» Deen, 66, said in a statement Friday. While Deen said in her statement that «those who truly know how I live my life know that I believe in kindness and fairness for everyone,» she also promised to take a closer look at how her employees are treated. «Moving forward my team and I are working to review the workplace environment issues that were raised in this matter and to retool all of my businesses operations,» Deen said. «I look forward to getting back to doing what I love.» Deen is co-owner of the restaurant, which is primarily run by her brother. Jackson also claimed that Hiers sexually harassed her when she worked at the restaurant from 2005 to 2010. Regardless of the truth behind Jackson’s claims, her lawsuit resulted in serious damage to Deen’s public image. It was Jackson’s lawyer who questioned Deen under oath in May when she acknowledged having used racial slurs in the past. A transcript of the legal deposition became public in June, and the backlash against Deen caused the Food Network and other corporate sponsors and business partners to drop her. Her upcoming book was dropped by the publisher and companies including Wal-Mart, Target and Caesars Entertainment Corp. severed ties with her. The deal to resolve the suit comes little more than a month after Deen and Hiers dumped their attorneys and hired a new legal team. In her lawsuit, Jackson had claimed Hiers frequently made jokes containing racial slurs at work and prohibited black workers from using the restaurant’s front entrance and customer restrooms. She said she was personally offended because she had biracial nieces. Attorneys for Deen said in court filings that Jackson’s lawsuit was based on «scurrilous and false claims.» They said before Jackson filed suit, she threatened to embarrass Deen publicly unless she paid the ex-employee «huge sums of money.»

More in The fight against ISIS Helped by more than 270 airstrikes from a U.S.-led coalition and an American airdrop of weapons, the Kurds have succeeded in halting the militants’ advance and now believe that a corner has been turned

KOBANI, Syria — Blocks of low-rise buildings with hollow facades, shattered concrete, streets strewn with rubble and overturned, crumpled remains of cars and trucks. Such is the landscape in Kobani, where the sounds of rifle and mortar fire resonate all day long in fighting between Islamic extremists and the Syrian town’s Kurdish defenders.

Kurdish fighters peek through sand-bagged positions, firing at suspected militant positions. Female fighters in trenches move quickly behind sheets strung up to block the view of snipers. Foreign jets circle overhead.

An exclusive report shot by a videojournalist inside Kobani offered a rare, in-depth glimpse of the horrendous destruction that more than two months of fighting has inflicted on the Kurdish town in northern Syria by the Turkish border.

There, Kurdish fighters backed by small numbers of Iraqi peshmerga forces and Syrian rebels are locked in what they see as an existential battle against the militants, who swept into their town in mid-September as part of a summer blitz after the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria overran large parts of Syria and neighboring Iraq.

More in The fight against ISIS

Helped by more than 270 airstrikes from a U.S.-led coalition and an American airdrop of weapons, the Kurds have succeeded in halting the militants’ advance and now believe that a corner has been turned.

Several fighters with the YPG, the main Kurdish fighting force, spoke confidently of a coming victory. Jamil Marzuka, a senior commander, said the fighting has «entered a new phase» in the last week.

«We can tell everyone, not just those on the front lines, that we are drawing up the necessary tactics and plans to liberate the city,» he said.

A YPG fighter, who identified himself only by his first name, Pozul, said only small pockets of militants remain. Still, he said he and other fighters must remain wary as they move around because snipers with ISIS, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, lurk amid the ruins and the militants have booby-trapped buildings they left behind.

«They are scattered so as to give us the impression that there are a lot of them, but there are not,» he said.

The Kurds’ claims of imminent victory may be overly ambitious. But the AP’s reporting has found that ISIS’ drive has at least been blunted. Hundreds of militants have been killed, most of them by airstrikes.

On Friday, activists said ISIS militants withdrew from large parts of the so-called Kurdish security quarter, an eastern district where Kurdish militiamen maintain security buildings and 전라남도출장안마 offices. Militants had seized the area last month.

Zardasht Kobani, a 26-year-old YPG unit commander, has been fighting day and night for weeks. Often he and his fellow fighters were short on ammunition and sleep, he said. Now he feels an important victory at is at hand. The battle of Kobani has had a crucial symbolism for both sides.

He said the militants have failed in Kobani and are looking for a way out.

«But IS knows that escaping from Kobani will spell their downfall,» he said, referring to ISIS by an abbreviation for what the group calls itself, the Islamic State.
