US denies involvement in Iran strike
Several unidentified drones attacked a military workshop in the city of Isfahan over the weekend
The Pentagon has denied that any US forces took part in a drone attack late on Saturday that lightly damaged an Iranian defense ministry complex in the city of Isfahan, in the central part of the country. The statement follows reports that the US and Israel could be involved.
According to the Iranian Defense Ministry, a number of drones targeted a military workshop, but air defenses successfully repelled the attack. It also claimed there were no casualties, and that the facility was continuing normal operations.

UN chief calls for renewal of Ukraine grain deal, progress at COP27
UNITED NATIONS, Nov 4 (NNN-Xinhua) — UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for the renewal of the Ukraine grain deal, and for the application of the same spirit of multilateralism at the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference in Egypt, or COP27.
At a press encounter, Guterres called for the renewal of the Black Sea Grain Initiative as Russia has agreed to resume its participation.
“Now that the initiative has fully resumed, I appeal to all parties to concentrate efforts in two areas: first, to renewal and full implementation of the Black Sea Initiative; second, to removing the remaining obstacles to the exports of Russian food and fertilizer,” said Guterres.
“I am fully committed — along with the entire United Nations system — to the achievement of both these essential objectives,” he said.
The War-Zone Mentality — Mental Health Effects of Gun Violence in U.S. Children and Adolescents
Does gun violence affect the mental health of U.S. children? That question has the same answer as most inquiries about child and adolescent development: it depends. Rarely does a simple cause–effect relationship apply to the same degree to all children, and the same exposures may even have opposite effects on different children. Such variability is an essential truth of the “ecological perspective” on child and adolescent development. But from this perspective, consideration of gun violence’s effects on the mental health of young people highlights two issues among the many facing U.S. society: traumatic responses in children directly exposed to gun violence and contamination of the consciousness of young people, particularly those with serious mental health problems.
