    Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy echoed the worried sentiments of CDC director Rochelle Walensky about how we’re not out of the woods on the Covid-19 pandemic yet. Walensky gave an impassioned warning during Monday’s White House covid briefing saying she’s alarmed by the current trajectory of cases and deaths. “We have so much to look forward to, so much potential of where we are in so much reason for hope, but right now I am scared,” she said. Murthy told Wolf Blitzer that Walensky was absolutely correct in putting into words the “deep concern” they all feel. “There is some good news, no doubt. We have been able to vaccinate millions of people. We have come down from an all-time high in terms of infections and hospitalizations and deaths,” he noted. However, he warned, “We have not come down all the way, and in fact, we have settled at a very high level of daily deaths. Nearly 1000. And now we’re starting to see cases go up again and starting to see hospital admissions go up again.” Murthy said they’re...
    Washington, DC (CNN)Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a vocal critic of Donald Trump who wants to save his party from the former President, thinks politicians have learned that "fear is the most compelling emotion.""Fear will make you do anything," the Illinois Republican said Thursday in a conversation geared toward students and young Americans, noting that politicians have successfully incorporated fear into their campaigns, even fundraising off the emotion."Both parties have to come to grips with the fundraising issue. We do need real financial campaign finance reform here," Kinzinger said, although he voted against passage of HR 1, a sweeping government, ethics and election bill that would require so-called dark money nonprofit groups that engage in politics to disclose their larger donors and would give federal candidates as much as a 6-to-1 match of public funds for small donations to spur more grassroots giving."If you send out an email that says, 'Please give me money so I can, you know, make the roads better, or your life better,' you'll raise a little money.

    Pablo Iglesias. (Photo: Daniel Ochoa de Olza / AP) It is worth it, but not everything goes and you can always break the deck.

    David Ismay, the undersecretary for climate change under Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker’s (R) administration, explained during a Vermont Climate Council meeting last month the majority of the Bay State’s emissions come from average people and there is “no bad guy left … to point the finger at, to turn the screws on, and you know, to break their will.” Rather, he told his fellow climate advocates, “We have to break your will,” a remark he admitted would not bode well publicly. “You know one thing we found through our analysis is that 60 percent of our emissions come from, as I have been starting to say, you and me — except you guys are in Vermont,” he told the climate advocates at the January 25 meeting. “60 percent of our emissions come from residential heating and passenger vehicles,” he said, repeating the percentage and emphasizing the majority of emissions that need to be reduced come from average people. “So let me say that again, 60 percent of our emissions that need to be reduced come from you, the person across the...
    MIAMI (AP) – As if losing the NBA Finals isn’t bad enough, there now seems to be a curse that stretches into the following season. The Miami Heat aren’t believing that quite yet — even after a disastrous start to the 2020-21 campaign. The reigning Eastern Conference champions are 6-12, matching the franchise’s worst 18-game start since opening 4-14 in 2007-08. The roster has been decimated by injuries and virus-related issues, and the current losing streak reached five games after a 108-105 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers in a game where Miami led by 18 points early but wound up trailing by as many as 19. “Heat Nation, we are going to figure this out,” All-Star center Bam Adebayo said. “Just bear with us. We are going to figure this out. I can promise them that we are going to figure this out. I know that they’re tired of seeing us lose. We’re tired of losing. We have to figure this out.” The next chance to get things right comes Saturday when Miami hosts Sacramento. The year after losing...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A Miami Gardens family said their home was destroyed after a fire swept through it. Three adults live in the home on NW 12th Avenue and two children, ages six and five months, were visiting. A woman who lives there said the fire was started by her son or another child who was playing with a lighter or matches. The woman said she was sleeping in her room when her son yelled out something was on fire. She said she jumped up, saw the fire, and then ran out of the house to a neighbor to have them call 911. “My son was still trying to put the fire out but it was too much, it was too big. I yelled for him to come out, come out, come out, and everything is gone. It’s ruined. We have nothing left,” she said.

    Former Trump administration officials deserve gratitude for their service to America, not a campaign to hound them from public life, former White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove told "Your World" Friday. Rove, now a Fox News contributor, was reacting to the circulation of a letter signed by hundreds of authors and publishing professionals that called on publishing houses to consider "participation in the administration of Donald Trump ... a uniquely mitigating criterion ... when considering book deals." KARL ROVE: It's way too far, and particularly when we owe, to some of those people, we owe them thanks for going into the administration and taking on a tough job and keeping bad things from happening. That's one of the things that just, you know, have we come to this as a country, that we're going to blacklist people? I thought we agreed even when people were Communists, even when they were conspiring with an international force that wanted to pull down the United States, there was angst on the left against blacklisting people in Hollywood who had joined the Communist Party and...
    The Associated Press and news networks are being justifiably cautious in projecting state-by-state winners in the presidential race, but here’s what we know so far, based on the AP. Donald Trump has won Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wyoming. Joe Biden has won Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Virginia. That gives Biden 131 electoral votes and Trump 108 to this point.
    Fox News host Chris Wallace said Thursday on “America’s Newsroom” that if the allegations that former Vice President Joe Biden had financially profited from his son Hunter’s foreign business dealings that would have been discovered by now. While discussing tonight’s presidential debate, Wallace said, “It’s certainly going to be brought up tonight.” He continued, “If Kristen Welker doesn’t bring it up — and I think she will — the president will bring it up.” He added, “It is interesting you saw yesterday Governor Huckabee say if you want to bring it up fine, but you have to talk about what people’s concerns, their daily lives are, healthcare, economy, jobs, all that stuff. Marc Thiessen, the former speechwriter for George W. Bush, said the same thing. I think the president has to be a little careful because you heard Barack Obama yesterday point out that The New York Times had revealed that Donald Trump has — not had, but has — a secret bank in China. And said that, you know, if that had come out when he was president, people would have called him Beijing Barry....

    President Donald Trump raved about Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) to his face during a roundtable about the West Coast wildfires on Monday. Newsom has praised Trump on numerous occasions during the coronavirus pandemic, and largely avoided criticizing him. Many presumed the governor was making nice in order to get his citizens what the needed from the federal government, such as ventilators and PPE. As a Democrat in one of the bluest states, Newsom was a notable critic of the president prior to the coronavirus outbreak, often bashing Trump during his addresses and cable news appearances. Now, as California needs more help from the federal government, the two were acting very cordially during the president’s briefing on the raging wildfires. “I want do thank the governor for the job he’s done,” Trump said. “We have a great relationship. I know we come from different sides of the planet. We have a good relationship. A good man.” “It’s great to have you back in the state, Mr. President,” Newsom said. “Thank you for being here in particular … Just an example of the partnership between...
    The latest installment in the Microsoft Flight Simulator series is definitely beautiful in terms of the visuals. It presents a hyper-realistic rendition of the world. In fact, Nvidia GeForce recently launched an updated graphics driver to provide the best experience for the game. The previous installment of the series had released around 15 years ago and featured quite impressive visuals for its time. A comparison between that and the current installment was inevitable. It does not just show the evolution of the game, but also how far graphics and detailing have come in the evolution of gaming. From Microsoft Flight Simulator X to Flight Sim 2020: Improved lights, terrain, and vivid details In this comparison, we will look at the difference between the quality of the graphics of the two games.

    CASTLE HILLS, Texas – While teachers, students and parents across the city gear up for the first day of school, classes at one North East ISD school are already underway. For students at Castle Hills Elementary School, a year-round school, the first day of class was on July 21. The hallways have been empty, and all 470 students enrolled at Castle Hills Elementary have been learning virtually. Elisabeth Myers, a third-grade teacher at Castle Hills Elementary School, says starting the school year with a concrete plan and schedule has been helpful. In addition to "live virtual" instruction, teachers are making videos and posting them online for students. "The kids that aren't able to be live during the times that we have scheduled, they can go back and watch the videos," Myers said. "They can still communicate with teachers. So the flexibility is really nice, and I think parents love that too." As far as advice for going back to campus, Myers says patience is essential, and parent communication is more important than ever. "I think with all of us as...

    Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger, an Air Force veteran, joined "Fox Report" Saturday and reacted to a new poll showing American pride is at a 20-year low and also addressed the call to remove historical monuments and statues. "I think it's insanity and I think it's maybe a symptom of, we have not emphasized our history enough," Kinzinger told anchor Jon Scott. "There are some that are more interested in talking about how all these men and women were flawed. Well, we live on the Earth. Until we get to heaven, there's going to be wars. There's going to be shortcomings and we want to send a message to people that, you know, you can change and you can get better as a society. We can get better." Kinzinger said he agreed that most statues could come down if local governments agree to remove them. He also said he felt like the call to remove statues of past presidents was due to the fact that President Trump was in office. "I think it's a political thing. I mean, honestly... if President Trump was not...
    What do your orgasms smell of? Gwyneth Paltrow’s smell of “tart grapefruit, neroli and ripe cassis berries”, apparently. But aside from the marketing behind Goop’s new This Smells Like My Orgasm candle, it is at least making female arousal a talking point. 3It took Kate a long time to realise her own orgasmic potential A study found that only 65% of heterosexual women are regularly orgasming, compared with 95% of men.* Could the “orgasm gap” be the next frontier of feminism? It took me a long time to realise my own orgasmic potential. Like many women of a certain age, I got most of my sex education from watching Sex And The City. Although I wasn’t a Samantha, who climaxes every time she has sex (“When I RSVP to a party, I make it my business to come”), there were times when sex felt more amazing and also not so amazing, even if I didn’t really understand why. It didn’t help that TV and films (not to mention porn) give the impression that it takes women only...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday there must be no stigma against wearing a mask as a precaution against the coronavirus and urged people to wear them when leaving the house or when getting close to other people. In a floor speech, McConnell said Americans must continue to be cautious and wear masks, but he made it clear that the U.S. needs to come up with a new strategy for how to conduct business amid the pandemic, saying “We cannot go back to April, and we cannot go right back to normal. We need new routines, new rhythms and new strategies for this new middle ground in between. It’s the task of each family, each small business, each employer and all levels of government to apply common sense and make this happen.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) puts on his face mask after speaking to members of the media following the weekly Senate Republican Policy Luncheon at Hart Senate Office Building June 23, 2020 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

    Nelson Mandela's widow Graca Machel has implored anti-racism campaigners not to tear down statues because they serve as grave reminders of past atrocities. The activist said: 'I believe even it might be much more positive to keep them because you are going to tell generations to come "this is how it started and this is how it should never be."' Her remarks put her at loggerheads with the Archbishop of Canterbury, who today revealed he would be reviewing statues at Canterbury Cathedral. Justin Welby said monuments would be looked at 'very carefully' to see if they all 'should be there'.  In a wide-ranging interview, he also urged the West to reconsider its prevailing mindset that Jesus was white, and pointed to different portrayals of Christ as Black or Middle Eastern in different countries. The two figures waded into the heated statue debate at a time when monuments of controversial figures are under the microscope. But Machel, the widow of the former prisoner-turned-South African president, who campaigned against apartheid, stressed that historic sculptures were important to learn the lessons of the past....
    Angela Underwood Jacobs, the sister of a federal law-enforcement officer in California who was shot and killed amid violent protests over the death of George Floyd, told “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday that the issue facing America right now “is regarding humanity and a blatant disregard for life.” Patrick Underwood, 53, was shot and killed at the US courthouse in Oakland on the evening of May 29 after a vehicle pulled up outside the Ronald V.

And behind the guardsmen stood Little Rock Central High School, which had resisted desegregation since the Supreme Court ruled public school segregation unconstitutional three years earlier.
