Brexit has brought a lot of uncertainty to the UK economy, and a new analysis confirms how much investments have dropped. A new study by the Department of International Trade shows that there has been a drop of 24% in jobs created between 2018 and 2019, as well as a drop of 14% in foreign investment. This data is a reflection of other surveys that suggest companies are putting off big spending decisions until after the Brexit due to the uncertainty it would bring.

Democrats in the House of Representatives in the U.S. have passed a bill approving $4.5 billion in humanitarian aid for migrants at the southern border. Due to the recent deaths and the scandal over the detained children, lawmakers decided to toughen up the bill which will see that the money won't be spent in migration raids, detention beds, nor the border wall. Now, this bill is expected to hit a rough patch at the Senate because it will be fighting alongside another bill with fewer controls that Republicans might end up favoring.

Boeing was expecting to return the 737 Max to service late this summer, but that timetable has been pushed after a recent finding. The Federal Aviation Administration said it spotted a potential risk during simulations and, although it didn't specify what kind of issue it was, experts believe this setback might keep the plane grounded until the end of the year. Boeing has been working on upgrading the aircraft's anti-stall system that has been blamed for the two deadly crashes that claimed more than 300 lives. Boeing stated that test pilots took longer than expected to stabilize the plane after the anti-stall system activated.

Ford is already testing small fleets in different cities in the US to see how plausible it is to expand the technology to other parts of the world.

A study made by the Yale School of Medicine shows that women in the U.S. are taking more 3D mammograms than 2D mammograms due to their alleged effectiveness, but not all regions can afford it. In the study, the rates of 3D scan went up from 13% to 43% in 2017, showing that most of the women who took them were white, wealthy, and educated. Only 18% of black women were able to take the 3D mammograms; most of them resided in the southeast region of the country. Doctors say 3D scannings are not necessarily better than 2D ones, but they do discard any future visits to the hospital for suspicions of tumors.

When the fossils were taken to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, experts confirmed that the partial skeleton was comprised of a limb bone and several ribs. Moreover, scientists explained that discoveries of triceratops remains were common because Colorado was a hotbed for fossils.

Donald Trump has ordered that all hospitals and health providers must reveal the real cost of medical procedures and treatments for patients to know what the best price for their treatment is. The order also includes insurance companies to bring transparency to patients as well as giving them the best options on where to get treatment. However, many healthcare providers say the order could have a negative consequence on hospitals taking out the current discounts to bring the price up to pair with other health facilities. Patients often look for quality instead of price; people with advanced illnesses look for the most efficient treatment, no matter the cost.

The Food and Drugs Administration has issued a warning against Kramton products that claim to treat opioid withdrawal symptoms as well as depression and anxiety. Kramton is a Southern Asian herb that is sold in powder or capsules and shipped to different parts of the world. The FDA states that previous products made with the herb have contained salmonella, affecting people who take them for other purposes. It has also been found that Kramton can have the same effect as an opioid in the brain, which can be counterproductive. The agency also blames Kramton companies of falsely advertising the products on social media as a cheap method to fight opioid addiction.

Now, five of these rhinos are being transported to Rwanda where they will finally be introduced into the wild. Scientists explained that they would be studying how this species adapts to their new surroundings in the first few weeks, and they hope the rhinos would have a positive impact to the ecosystem.
