An over-the-counter nasal spray MAY prevent or mitigate the effects of COVID-19

A medicine that may prevent or mitigate the effects of COVID-19 is being submitted to the FDA for trial approval.  And it's available now over-the-counter.

Xlear (pronounced "clear") is a nasal spray that requires no prescription. It's approved for sale for sinus relief.

But Florida pulmonologist Dr. Gustavo Ferrer, who founded the Cleveland Clinic Florida Cough Clinic, says preliminary tests at Utah State University show it works in fighting COVID-19.

Ferrer cautions it's not a vaccine. And has not yet been approved for use in combating the coronavirus.

Republicans - including former Bush White House staffers - are trying to TAKE DOWN Trump

Some 200 former George W. Bush White House staffers say they are endorsing Joe Biden for president.

Lincoln Project co-founder Jennifer Horn says there are more Republicans abandoning the president than many of us realize.

Horn says it's a matter of principle. She says the Lincoln Project ... formed by Republicans ... believes it's more important to protect the republic than the party. And she says the ex-Bush staffers are proof they are not alone.

The former New Hampshire Republican Party chair says there will be plenty of time to argue ideological differences with Democrats after the November election.

How would Einstein deal with the COVID outbreak?

Do we need global cooperation to successfully combat the coronavirus?

Albert Einstein predicted it would take a global pandemic to bring the world together.

The world's leading Einstein scholar, Hebrew University professor Hanoch Gutfreund, says Einstein would have been saddened at the global finger pointing and name calling.

But he believes there is still time for the nations of the world to partner. He suggests if the World Health Organization is right and the worst is yet to come, cooperation between nations may still take place.

Professor Gutfreund is a key advisor to Hebrew University's upcoming “Einstein: Visualize the Impossible” virtual experience in celebration of the centennial of Albert Einstein’s 1921 Nobel Prize in physics, allowing the public to interact with him as both a scientist and a citizen of the world.

Should we defund cops? Or should we put money into better training?

A former police officer and law enforcement reform advocate is arguing that defunding the cops is not the solution to police community relations problems.

Retired Detroit police Sergeant David Malhalab says instead of taking money away from the police, the focus should be on screening and training.

Malhalab says the vast majority of cops want to help, not hurt the minority communities they serve.
