Times | Camera-mounted cameras will be able to capture early signs of cancer
The new system, which will be tested in the UK, will provide thousands of patients with small cameras to swallow. With these cameras, the body can be examined for early stage cancer. The cells, housed in pill-sized capsules, can be removed from the body through the toilet after a cancer test.

New York Times | Congress approved a $ 1.9 trillion aid package; Sent to Bidet
Washington Post | The House of Representatives is sending an incentive package to Biden
The Biden administration’s $ 1.9 trillion coronavirus aid package was approved by Congress, and there were deep disagreements on many issues. The bill’s long-debated passage was hailed as President Joe Biden’s first major victory in the legislature.
The package was passed between 211 and 220 votes, with members of Congress voting more in line with their party’s views. All Republicans voted against the package, but one Democrat was not with them. The bill, which includes an aid package, will go to Biden’s desk to be signed in accordance with this result.
Republicans have argued that the package is bigger than expected and that Washington is too big to pay.
Shortly after the vote, Biden shared the words “Help has arrived.” Biden will sign the package on Friday.
Biden later said the adoption of the package was a “historic legal step” and that the aid would “give the people who make up the backbone of this country a chance to fight.”
Under the incentive package, hundreds of billions of dollars are planned to be spent on vaccine distribution, schools and unemployment benefits, and direct payments to U.S. citizens and small businesses. The $ 1.9 trillion aid package will be one of the largest aid packages in US history.
