The CDC Suggests Cutting COVID-19 Isolation From 10 To 5 Days, Twitter Has Suspicions

HipHopWired Featured Video CLOSE Source: SOPA Images / Getty COVID-19 cases are averaging close to 200,000 cases per day due to the aggressive Omicron variant, prompting public health officials to scramble for widespread testing and other mitigating measures. The CDC, one of the leading voices regarding the deadly virus, suggested that COVID-19 isolation be cut from 10 to 5 days, but only if the subject is asymptomatic. The CDC made an announcement this week that isolation and quarantine time after a positive COVID-19 test can be cut from the formerly routine 10 days to just five. Earlier, it was suggested that healthcare workers could return to work sooner after exposure to the virus, which prompted some pushback last week when that instruction was first announced. However, this latest mi...

HipHopWired Featured Video Source: piola666 / Getty COVID-19 is still very much a part of our daily lives and while vaccinations and other mitigating factors have helped, the world is still in the grips of a pandemic.

Study Finds Racial Discrimination Leads To Anxiety, Depression & Suicidal Ideation In Black Men

HipHopWired Featured Video Source: FatCamera / Getty When it comes to the leading causes of death of Black men in America, heart disease and cancer are often brought up as they should be since they’re at the very top of the killer list across ages. Homicide is also often brought up, especially by white people who lean on it as an illogical justification for their racism. But one relatively common cause of death among Black men and boys that is rarely discussed is suicide—the leading cause of death for Black males ages 15 to 24, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  According to a study conducted by Janell R. Goodwill, an assistant professor at the University of Chicago Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy and Practice, suicide is a leading cause for Black...

Listen to Health and Poppy’s First Collaboration on ‘Dead Flowers’

Health released their single in collaboration with Poppy “Dead Flowers.” Poppy’s darkly angelic voice glides through the industrial clouds of Health’s instrumentals. She opens the track: “Erased some stuff / And now they’re fighting me / ‘Cause we fade apart / Moon is soft to see,” which is seemingly the opposite route taken in The Rolling Stones’ 1971 track of the same name off Sticky Fingers. Health’s ethereal blend of searing guitars and snapping drums delicately elevate Poppy and lead vocalist of Health Jake Duszik while taking on the chorus. [embedded content][embedded content] “Every time we release a new track we get asked to give a quote about it,” Health said. “Truthfully, I’m not sure it makes much of a difference.” Health will release a sequel ...
