    President Joe Biden on Monday warned Americans they may need another shot to protect them from the Omicron variant of COVID-19 as he outlined the measures his administration was taking to respond to the latest threat. With scientists already beginning research on whether new vaccines will be needed, Biden also urged the unvaccinated to get their shots.    'We do not yet believe that additional measures will be needed,' he said at the White House.  'But so that we are prepared if needed, my team is already working with officials at Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson to develop contingency plans for vaccines or boosters if needed.' And he said he was directing regulators to push as fast as possible - without cutting corners - to approve rapidly any new vaccines.   He repeated the point in an evening tweet. 'In the event — hopefully unlikely — that updated vaccinations or boosters are needed to respond to Omicron, we will accelerate their development and deployment with every available tool,' he said.  'I am sparing no effort and removing all roadblocks to keep the...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s the time of year when we think about giving to others. And while this year the pandemic has created an even greater need for those less fortunate, charities say finding volunteers to roll up their sleeves and lend a hand isn’t. Hundreds of volunteers working five- and six-hour shifts are doing something that lets people feel the warm embrace of community.

    FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – More than 50 children joined new families Friday, Nov. 19 during the 20th Tarrant County National Adoption Day celebration. While a courthouse isn’t often a place filled with smiles, that was all you saw on faces filling two floors of the Tarrant County Family Law Center, and the tears were happy ones. Set up on the weekend before Thanksgiving, the day is meant to draw awareness to the need for child advocates, foster parents and adoptive families. More than 1,200 children have been adopted during the event over the last 20 years. Jennifer Jones had waited two years for a judge to approve the adoption of her 8-year-old son Chandler. He was one of her first foster cases after she became a volunteer. “He just fits,” she said after the adoption was granted to applause Friday. “He gets everybody, he understands the family. He feels like he’s supposed to be with us.” Shaula and Paul Shaffer had intended to add one child to their family. But as a dyslexia specialist at Norwood Elementary School in Burleson,...
    A married couple with eight children who moved to Atlanta to expand their businesses died in a murder-suicide weeks after the wife disclosed she was struggling to adjust to life in Georgia and asked for prayers.  The couple was home alone shortly before 9 pm on November 6 when Keianna Burns, 44, fatally shot her 46-year-old husband, Ronnell Burns. She then shot herself. Hours earlier, Keianna Burns shared a video online that showed her dancing and singing with her young daughter, who police said was with a relative at the time of the incident. Weeks earlier, on October 30, she called on her friends to help her through a difficult time.

    Tuesday night, political upstart Glenn Youngkin narrowly defeated former Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe in the blue-tinted Commonwealth of Virginia, 50.5-49%. Though imperfect, county-level results and exit polls suggest McAuliffe’s intransigence on education and gender ideology cost him the governorship. Virginia is a blue state, but not so cerulean that a majority could ignore what transpired in Loudoun County, where district policy led to a transgender biological male raping a female 9th grader in the girls’ bathroom and a subsequent effort to sweep the incident under the proverbial rug. Youngkin gained vis-à-vis previous GOP candidates with minority voters. He clawed back a substantial share of the suburban moderates around Richmond, Virginia Beach and in Northern Virginia who voted against Donald Trump in 2020. Most notably, Youngkin rolled up huge margins in rural Virginia despite his culturally moderate campaign and style. Combined, these factors put the be-fleeced Republican over the top in a statewide race for the first time since 2009. These are encouraging signs for Republicans nationwide, but they also warrant caution. Compared to the analogous 2009 off-year elections, this year’s...
    (CNN)Demoralized Democrats need a reckoning after a rough election night that sent serious warning signs that they have misjudged the nation's mood as their window closes before next year's midterms.While the party feuds over its vast social spending agenda, Republicans are highlighting issues that preoccupy voters more immediately, like a sluggish economy, high gas prices, expensive groceries, crime rates and concerns about the rights of parents to influence what is taught in schools. Those concerns in many cases have been exacerbated by a prolonged pandemic, which President Joe Biden declared all but over in July but that spiked over the summer in a new blow to an exhausted nation's morale. Virginia governor's race especially was seen as a one-year referendum on Biden's presidency in a state he won by a whopping 10 points a year ago. Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin didn't just triumph, according to a CNN projection, he showed Republicans everywhere how to win, keeping former President Donald Trump out of the state to make inroads in suburbs lost to the GOP in 2018 and 2020 elections. 8 takeaways...
    "Well, we need white people to step up and do that!" Goldberg replied. Tafoya offered that white people have been doing that very thing "since the Civil War," although not perfectly. It didn't matter to Goldberg, who officially got riled up: "No, no, no, no, they haven't! ... Listen, when you have a country — or let's talk about a state — where somebody can be hung from a tree, and it's OK?" "That's not, OK," Tafoya said. "Well, it was OK. It was OK in the South. People did it all the time. People would run you down. And not that long ago," Goldberg said. 'There are still lynchings going on today' Co-host Sunny Hostin interjected that "there are still lynchings going on today."

    DENVER (CBS4)– As Autumn transitions into Winter, COVID-19 case numbers are dropping nationally, but rising in Colorado. Those rising cases are taking a toll on Colorado hospitals. (credit: CBS) READ MORE: 2 Vehicles Struck By Bullets After Argument Ends With Gunfire At Bus Stop“This is probably the biggest challenge our hospitals have faced in the modern era,” says Cara Welch is the Senior Director of Communications for The Colorado Hospital Association. You may have heard stories recently of ambulances diverting to different hospitals because there are no more beds, or of elective procedures being canceled because hospitals need the staff. Those are actions hospitals can take when they get too busy to release some of the pressure. Cara says it happens all the time even before the pandemic. Now hospitals are taking actions like these nearly every day. It’s not a sign of failure, but it is a sign that hospitals and their staff are stretched thin. (File photo.

    Even as booster shots of COVID-19 vaccines become widely available in the U.S., some vaccine experts are not convinced that the shots are broadly necessary. While studies indicate that older adults have a higher risk of severe breakthrough Covid cases, limited data are available on the need for boosters among younger age groups. In addition, pressure from the federal government has made it difficult for some vaccine experts to make objective decisions about boosters, several experts said in interviews with the New York Times. Over 13 million Americans have received an additional vaccine dose as of October 25, including about 18 percent of seniors. Booster shots are now widely available for Americans, but some experts aren't sure they are widely needed. Pictured: A nurse receives a Pfizer booster in Miami, Florida, October 2021 Over 13 million Americans have received a booster dose so far, according to the CDC.

    Within a few hours of arriving in Tsavo East National Park we are surrounded by a herd of bull elephants with enormous tusks. They are turning and tossing their heads, jostling for places at the water hole, chasing off buffalo, zebras and reticulated giraffes for the prime spots at the water’s edge. Clouds of Tsavo dust hang in the air. It feels great to be back in the African bush on safari. By modern standards these are big tuskers, some looking like their ivory weighs 80 lb a side. In the old days, before poachers took out most of the large tuskers in Africa, anything under 100 lb a side was seen as common. Nowadays most elephants bear modest toothpick tusks, so these big Tsavo bulls are a rare treat — and a sign the area is in good shape. These are some of the biggest bull elephants I have ever seen.

    (CNN)The search for a rapid at-home Covid-19 test now might remind you of what it was like to hunt for toilet paper at the beginning of the pandemic. They've been hard to find for months. The tests are in such hight demand, and in such short supply, that CVS has put a limit on how many tests customers can buy. They're so precious, some people have even started bringing them to dinner parties to give away as hostess gifts, instead of wine or flowers.On Wednesday, the Biden administration announced that it will spend an additional $1 billion to get more at-home tests into the market, but the shortages could continue for months and, experts say, the additional tests might not be enough to make this tool as effective as it could be to help end the pandemic.What's the plan?Vaccines can protect people from becoming infected, but they are only one tool to can help stop the spread of Covid-19.The Biden administration has made testing a priority.

    CNN political analyst Carl Bernstein said Friday on CNN’s “New Day” that former President Donald Trump helped transform the Republican Party into a “secessionist movement” causing a “civil war.” Bernstein said, “Democracy is in peril because the Republican Party has become the party of Trumpism and the party of disenfranchisement. What we have seen in Idaho, what we have also seen in Arizona, in these supposed recounts ordered because of supposed voter fraud, is it doesn’t exist. It is part of the Big Lie. The Big Lie is not just about the lie that Donald Trump did not lose the election a few months ago, but rather it looks toward … 2024 and the idea that we are going to have another, quote, rigged election. They’re setting this up so that there can be no legitimacy in our electoral process.” He added, “The Republican Party has been taken over by this movement, that is the most radical political movement of our lifetime, that has come to power in any form in Washington, in our state legislatures. I think what we...

    Funding for Missouri’s need-based scholarship programs is “consistently and grossly inadequate” with awards to students with financial need “significantly less than those … without financial need,” according to a study produced by the Scholarship Foundation of St. Louis. The 21-page Report Card on the Scholarship Programs of the State of Missouri released Wednesday by the Foundation’s League of Student Advocates “reveals significant disparities” in how the state administers its four college scholarship programs. “Funding for Missouri’s need-based scholarship programs is consistently and grossly inadequate,” the report card states. “Awards to students with financial need are significantly less than those made to students without financial need.” The report card calls on lawmakers to adopt a series of reforms that include consolidating the four scholarship programs into one entity with enhanced need-based criteria for awards and a $130 million boost in annual funding for need-based scholarships. “If education is to be a top priority in the state, financial assistance must be fundamentally restructured,” the report card states. “Providing $130 million yearly for need-based scholarships would go a long...
    A dozen child and teenage female musicians in Afghanistan are in "grave danger" from the Taliban and need to be rescued after the U.S. withdrew its military from the country, according to Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello. The girls, ranging in age from 4 to 19, are members of a school called Girl With a Guitar, a music school in Kabul founded by Lanny Cordola, a songwriter, producer and guitarist for bands such as Giuffria and House of Lords. On Monday, Morello wrote an open letter to the music community asking it to help Cordola get the girls and their families out of Afghanistan. "I'm writing on behalf of some very special girls in Afghanistan who are in grave danger," Morello wrote in the letter, which Cordola sent to Billboard. "[Girl With a Guitar] takes in street orphans and other girls that have endured significant trauma and uses music as a rehabilitation tool and means of working through their problems, their histories, and their hopes." "I've had the honor of collaborating with these wonderful kids. Since the...
    (CNN)I drove up to the mechanic with a shaking engine on Thursday last week. It was one of the smallest issues an engine could have. He told me, "You can drive away, so we aren't going to help you." I didn't know a hurricane was coming until that moment.

Merissa Gerson Headshot On Friday, between class sections at Tulane, student after student wrote me that they were leaving.

    Monday, Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) urged President Joe Biden to quit “bowing down” to the Taliban when it comes to evacuating Americans out of Afghanistan. Ernst said on Fox News Channel’s “The Faulkner Focus” that if Biden cannot get every American and Afghan ally out safely by the August 31 deadline, then “we need to stay and make sure they are evacuated safely.” “We absolutely need to get our American citizens out of Afghanistan,” Ernst emphasized. “We know that the Taliban is impeding progress there. And we need to make it very loud and very clear with the Taliban that we are staying until we evacuate every American citizen safely — not to mention our Afghan interpreters, our partners. There should be no discussion about this. This should be America is going to do this. These are our citizens. We leave no one behind.” She continued, “Again, going back to a very weak administration. President Joe Biden shouldn’t be bowing down to the demands of the Taliban when we have American citizens’ lives hanging on the very balance. If our...
    Afghanistan Women’s soccer team Director Khalida Popal said she has “unfortunately not” heard from U.S. women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe or any other players “who have been activists.” “Have you heard from Megan Rapinoe the U.S. soccer player? Anybody reach out from that team to give you support or to offer more attention?” “Fox & Friends” co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy asked Popal on Sunday. “Unfortunately not. Not from the players. Not from the players who have been activists,” Popal said. Popal, who was a founder of the Afghanistan Women’s National soccer Team, has been urging female soccer players to burn their jerseys and to get rid of their social media accounts out of fear of being targeted by the Taliban. (RELATED:‘Bully’: Megan Rapinoe’s Former Teammate Rips Her Over National Anthem Protests) The women’s soccer team was founded “as standing against Taliban and standing against ideology that is against women,” she told Fox News. “We have called Taliban an ‘enemy of humanity’ in media numerous times.” “So who do you need right now?

    President Joe Biden said when pressed Wednesday that U.S. troops were 'going to stay' in Afghanistan until they get American citizens out, even if it means running through an August 31 deadline order. He made the statement despite his own order that U.S. troops will leave by an August 31 deadline, acknowledging the effort could run over if American citizens are still stuck in Afghanistan amid security and bureaucratic hurdles.       'We've got like 10 to 15,000 Americans in the country right now. Right? And are you committed to making sure that the troops stay until every American who wants to be out is out?'

'So Americans should understand that troops might have to be there beyond Aug. 31st?' the Good Morning America host asked him. President Joe Biden said U.S. troops would remain in Afghanistan to get all U.S. citizens out of Afghanistan, suggesting they would stay even beyond an August 31 deadline if necessary 'No,' Biden dodged.

    GREENSBURG, Pa. (KDKA) — The number of COVID-19 patients is beginning to increase in Westmoreland County. According to the CDC, the county joins Allegheny and a host of surrounding counties that moved from “substantial” to “high” COVID-19 transmission. The positivity rate for the county is roughly 6.7 percent, which means new infections are jumping into the double digits on a daily basis.

    LONG BRANCH, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, unemployment and food insecurity soared.

    (CNN)As Americans gear up for a new school year against a backdrop of rising Covid-19 cases, experts say there is no time to waste in getting already rising vaccination rates even higher.The US is currently averaging 486,332 people initiating vaccinations a day, which is a 10% increase over last week's pace and the highest daily average since June 18, according to data published Monday by the CDC. Though the improvements are promising, more Americans still need to get vaccinated as quickly as possible, especially considering that it takes six weeks from the first injection for people to be fully protected, Dr. Thomas Frieden said, former director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.But still just over half of the total population is fully vaccinated, and 31.2% of the vaccine-eligible population remains unvaccinated. The large swath of the population still unvaccinated is even more of a concern as cases rise. With an average of more than 116,600 new Covid-19 cases per day, it's the highest in about six months, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. 2 Texas...
    (CNN)A year and a half since the first Covid-19 cases were identified, many countries in Asia-Pacific feel right back where they started.While Britons hit the nightclubs after a long winter of coronavirus restrictions, millions of people in Australia and China are back in lockdown. Health systems in Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia are overwhelmed. And countries like the Pacific island nation of Fiji, which last year had only reported a handful of cases, are now battling major outbreaks.To some, it's hard to understand why Asia-Pacific is being hit so hard. Many Asia-Pacific countries turned themselves into hermit nations, closing off borders to almost all foreigners, imposing strict quarantines for arrivals, and introducing aggressive testing and tracing policies to catch any cases that slipped through their defenses. They lived with these tough border rules so cases could be brought down to zero -- and keep people safe.And it worked -- until the highly contagious Delta variant took hold. Now the fresh outbreaks are throwing the zero Covid strategy favored by China and Australia into question, and prompting a larger debate about just...
    More than 11 million Americans continue to report being behind on their rent. How much renters owe varies greatly from one state and county to the next, according to data provided to CNBC by Surgo Ventures, a nonprofit organization focusing on health and data. Across the country, the average renter household in arrears owes $3,700. The typical debt in Alabama is $2,700. In California, meanwhile, it's closer to $5,300. In some areas, renters face an even larger debt. In San Mateo County, California, the typical renter who's behind is $8,700 in the hole. Struggling renters in Bergen County, New Jersey, owe an average of $6,400. A study earlier this year by New York University found that thousands of renters in New York City have debts over $10,000.

    2020 action representing children who remain apart from parents due to the previous administration's separation policy Families forcibly separated at the southern border by the previous administration have already experienced trauma on top of trauma. Being ripped apart without so much as a chance to say goodbye. The months—often years—of separation. The danger that caused them to flee their homes in the first place. While some families have been reunited in recent months under the Biden administration, a number of them have had to deal with yet another added, completely unnecessary trauma. “So far, families from the first group of reunifications have reported homelessness shortly after entering the country, according to the documents,” BuzzFeed News reports. Some of the reasoning appears to be financial challenges stemming from work permit waits and other factors. Earlier this summer, The New York Times reported how work permit waits for certain visa applicants had stretched out to as long as five years due to government backlogs. While BuzzFeed News reports that reunited families are on a speedier process, it could still be months of waiting. Lisy is among those waiting, BuzzFeed News...
    Blood thinners help treated patients with moderate cases of COVID-19 but not those who are severely ill, a new study suggests. Researchers at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), part of the National Institutes of Health, looked at more than 5,500 hospitalized patients infected with the virus. They found that a full-dose blood thinner lowered the need for organ support for moderately ill patients and improved their chances of leaving the hospital.  However, critically ill COVID-19 patients in intensive care did not have the same outcomes when they received this treatment.  A full-dose blood thinner lowered the need for organ support for moderately ill patients and improved their chances of leaving the hospital, a new study found The same did not hold true for critically ill patients who received a high dose 'These results make for a compelling example of how important it is to stratify patients with different disease severity in clinical trials,' said Dr Gary Gibbons, director of the NHLBI, in a statement. 'What might help one subgroup of patients might be of no...

Scattered in order. As the epidemic has re-emerged, US companies are forced to revise their plans. Food company Tyson Foods has recently announced “All employees in the United States need to be vaccinated against Covid 19”, Or 120,000 employees, report The Wall Street Journal. “We did not take this decision lightly,” he said.

    Harare, Zimbabwe (CNN)Pauline Chinyandura adjusts her face mask as she rushes to serve lunch to a group of men visiting her makeshift canteen in Domboshava, a rural area around 25 miles northeast of Zimbabwe's capital Harare. The chatter around the canteen is all about the death of a popular health official from Covid-19 in a nearby village. Panic has slowly set in this part of rural Zimbabwe as news of the death spreads in a place where people had previously considered themselves safe from a virus mostly concentrated in the country's bustling urban areas.

It says it needs the details to properly defend him in his child porn case  Attorneys for Josh Duggar say the government is withholding evidence in the child porn case against the former 19 Kids and Counting reality star. In a motion filed Monday by Duggar's lawyer, Justin Gelfand, he says federal prosecutors are refusing to turn over details regarding a one-page piece of evidence, which they described as a screenshot that belonged to Duggar.  Gelfand is seeking additional information regarding the screenshot, which was gathered by detectives with the Little Rock police department, such as the date when it was taken, a native version of the file and details about how it was obtained.  Duggar's defense was notified of the screenshot's existence on June 2, but since then, Gelfand says its requests for more information have been rebuffed.  The government argued, he said, 'the information you requested further detailing the downloading...

'The increase in weakened immunity, chronic illness and degenerative diseases in the last 100 or so years can be attributed to a cluster of poor lifestyle choices - these seven are largely to blame,' she said.

    Yankees’ patchwork lineup couldn’t get anything going against Boston: ‘We are in a hole’ Andres Chavez July 17, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Yankees were forced to play with lots of reserves and minor leaguers on Friday night’s series opener against the Boston Red Sox. A COVID-19 outbreak took Aaron Judge, Gio Urshela, and Kyle Higashioka from the lineup, plus pitchers Jonathan Loaisiga, Wandy Peralta, ad Nestor Cortes Jr. On top of that, first baseman Luke Voit was placed on the 10-day injured list with knee soreness and there is no timetable for his return. As a result, the Yankeed had to play the likes of Trey Amburgey, Hoy Park, Brett Gardner, Tim Locastro, Chris Gittens, and Greg Allen. Not only that, but DJ LeMahieu, Giancarlo Stanton, Sánchez and Gleyber Torres combined to go 1-for-15 as the Yankees fell to 0-7 against the Red Sox. “We’re in a hole,” manager Aaron Boone said to MLB.com. “We’ve got to play really...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami Mayor Francis Suarez and President Joe Biden are joining other prominent elected officials and Cuban exiles in speaking out about the protests in Cuba. They responded Monday to the unprecedented images of thousands of people in the streets of Havana and other Cuban cities calling for an end to the dictatorship and demanding more food and vaccines as coronavirus cases have soared. There is also a dire shortage of basic necessities in Cuba. Hundreds of Cuban exiles and others demonstrated in Miami on Sunday as well in support of those in Cuba. READ MORE: Surfside Condo Collapse: A Look At Those Recovered And Identified On Monday, Miami Mayor Francis Suarez told CBS4’s Peter D’Oench that Sunday’s demonstrations in Cuba were “a spontaneous uprising that has never happened in the last 60 years.

The people of Cuba need medicine. They are starving. They are in need of international help. Unless...
    (CNN)A historic neighborhood threatened by plans for a sports arena, a bodega that became a hub for Dominicans in Rhode Island and a park where Mexican American students gathered to call for equitable access to education.Those locations are among the seven Latino heritage sites that preservation scholars say are in need of protection due to their deep cultural and historical ties to the Latino community in the United States. In a report released earlier this week, the Latino Heritage Scholars, an initiative of the Hispanic Access Foundation, said the sites in Arizona, California, New Mexico, Rhode Island and Texas are currently threatened by multiple factors, including weathering of structures, development plans and gentrification. Locations that embody the contributions of Latinos and their history are not often protected by federal laws and entities, said Manuel Galaviz, co-author of the report and an anthropologist at The University of Texas at Austin. He previously authored the nomination of Chicano Park in San Diego as a National Historic Landmark, which was approved by the Department of the Interior in 2017. "Even though for generations...
    (CNN)Against the backdrop of unprecedented heat waves and deadly wildfires, the West's historic drought has ranchers fighting another problem besides water shortages: a prolific hoard of grasshoppers is competing with cattle for food. Around 93% of the West is in some level of drought this week, and a bizarre impact of this pernicious dry condition is the explosion of the grasshopper population. Grasshoppers have devoured so much vegetation that many ranchers fear rangelands could be stripped bare.A 2021 grasshopper hazard map from the US Department of Agriculture shows each square yard of land contains at least 15 grasshoppers in parts of Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, Colorado, and Nebraska. "Climate change is a concern to all of us, and when we see extreme events such as a very bad drought, we see natural phenomenon increase such as grasshopper outbreaks," Sharon Selvaggio, a former US Fish and Wildlife Service biologist, told CNN. "It's very concerning."Drought conditions in Arizona have left cattle with little water.Grasshoppers, which thrive in hot, dry weather, have been defoliating trees and competing with cattle for food —...
    Signing Ben White won’t electrify Arsenal’s passionate fan base, but he’s just the sort of sensible transfer that Mikel Arteta needs to make this summer.  Arsenal are heading into the 2021-22 campaign without the promise or burden of European football. That will have a significant impact on the club’s transfer policy. Fortunately for supporters of the Gunners, their favourite club are already close to just the sort of boring move they need to focus on. According to Football London, Arsenal are involved in advanced negotiations with Brighton regarding a move for centre back Ben White. The 23-year-old defender isn’t going wow fans at The Emirates with a litany of world-class goals, but he can help Arteta’s side keep more clean sheets for years to come. White is clearly keen on the move to North London, but the two clubs have not yet agreed to a suitable transfer fee. Brighton officials correctly understand that White can walk right into Arteta’s starting XI next season. He can provide the Gunners with a significant upgrade over the quality of play they received from David Luiz...
    Joe Manchin agreed Tuesday to vote with his fellow Democrats to begin debate on the voting rights bill – but 10 Republicans would still need to hop on board to progress the legislation. 'Today I will vote 'YES' to move to debate this updated voting legislation as a substitute amendment to ensure every eligible voter is able to cast their ballot and participate in our great democracy,' the West Virginia centrist Democrat said. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said: 'We worked it out.' The bill, however, needs 60 votes to avoid a filibuster and allow the Senate to begin debating the measure – and not one Republican has said they will join the 50 Democrats in voting to move forward. A vote on H.R. 1, or For the People Act, is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening. Manchin previously said he would not vote for the partisan bill, and didn't seem convinced otherwise after a meeting with President Joe Biden at the White House on Monday. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin, pictured at the Capitol on June 22, said...
    The nation’s capital has been suffering for almost 18 months under harsh coronavirus lockdown protocol but D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser opened up the city just in time for the LGBT annual Pride event. “Muriel Bowser delivered remarks at the rally, condemning recent legislation in other states’ that’s taken aim at the rights of LGBTQ+ students and calling on D.C. to be an model of acceptance [sic],” the DCist reported. “We are going to make sure that D.C. is a leader in LGBTQ issues,” Bowser said. “I’ve had the privilege of going literally around the world to tell people that we are the gayest city in America. That requires us to take on that position of leadership to tell other cities what they should be doing.” This year’s Pride parade was for vehicles only, but photos accompanying the DCist story show large crowds in close proximity, most without masks.  The DCist, which is under the umbrella of the tax-payer funded National Public Radio (NPR) affiliate WAMU, reported according to the LGBT agenda by using “preferred pronouns” that don’t correspond with biological sex or even...
    College campuses will look different this fall when it comes to health and safety protocols. So far, over 200 colleges across the country have issued vaccination requirements, while other universities have announced plans to return to a pre-pandemic normal with the possibility of eliminating masks and social distancing altogether.  As a college parent, you may feel overwhelmed by the amount of information universities are putting out there. Ultimately, you and your child will have to make a decision based on what college you believe fits your standard for safety measures and your personal beliefs on the pandemic. VideoOver the past few months, with evolving information, safety precautions have become highly politicized, including the effectiveness of masks and social distancing. There’s also a growing number of people, particularly younger populations, who don’t plan on getting vaccinated.  Keep in mind, the college demographic is one with a lower death rate. The 18- to 29-year-old age group makes up 0.5% of all COVID-19 deaths in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  MARINE SURPRISES SISTER AT COLLEGE...
    Some House Republicans flaunted the rule to wear face masks on the chamber floor and three of them racked up $500 fines in the process. 'Best $500 I ever spent,' Republican Rep. Brian Mast told NBC News. He refused to put his mask on even after a member of the House Sergeant at Arms' office approached him on the chamber floor Tuesday evening, in full view of C-SPAN's camera, and asked him to wear one.   Mast was one of several GOP lawmakers seen on the House floor without a face covering as part of the protest of the rule after the CDC issued its new mask guidelines. House rules require lawmakers to wear a face mask unless addressing the chamber.  Conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene and three other Republican lawmakers took a selfie of themselves standing in the well of the House, bare faced, and tagging it with the hashtag #freeyourface 'Proud to join these Patriots for a peaceful protest on the House floor against mask mandates!,' Greene tweeted with the pic. 'Enough is enough! #FreeYourFace,' wrote Republican Rep. Mary...

    LEICESTER’S chances of winning their first FA Cup will be dampened if Jonny Evans is not fit. Brendan Rodgers has come out and said that even if the Northern Irishman is not 100 per cent, he will be on the pitch at Wembley. 4Experienced Jonny Evans is essential to Leicester's preferred system of playing three centre-backs so it's vital he's fit to face ChelseaCredit: AFP 4Wesley Fofana and Caglar Soyuncu showed vs Man Utd they are superb defenders but the Foxes gel better when Jonny Evans plays next to themCredit: Getty And that is because he knows just how instrumental he is to this Foxes side. Since their 3-1 home defeat to Arsenal in February, Rodgers changed Leicester to a 3-4-1-2 formation. Injuries to wide players Harvey Barnes and Ayoze Perez forced his hand into playing wing-backs. The switch saw Kelechi Iheanacho come into the side alongside Jamie Vardy and we all know how well he has done. But what it also did was show Evans’ worth to this team as he became the orchestrator of the three-man defence. Sitting...
