Overwhelmed by stress, she's fallen back into bad habits to cope. Jessica, who is being identified by her first name only to preserve her anonymity, has struggled with bulimia for over a decade.  "I'm bingeing just so I don't snap like a stressed-out rubber band.

    (CNN)Democrats are reintroducing legislation to expand background checks on all commercial gun sales, the first congressional move on significant gun control since Democrats won the White House and the majority in both chambers of Congress.The bill, called the Background Check Expansion Act, would expand background checks for all firearm sales or transfers in the country. Currently, background checks are not required for gun sales and transfers by unlicensed and private sellers.The issue was a major Democratic priority that President Joe Biden campaigned on in the 2020 election.The likelihood of actually passing the bill remains a longshot, as Democrats hold a slim 50-50 majority in the Senate and would need significant Republican support to overcome a legislative filibuster. Congress has struggled for years to pass any meaningful gun safety reforms. But universal background checks have been one of the few plans that have actually garnered some bipartisan support."Obviously this isn't going...

    In theory, conditions are back in place for the Ibex to rebound within the short-term lateral movement in which the price has been embedded since mid-November.

    New York : People who make more than $ 100,000 a year may get absolutely no money from the third stimulus check. Photo: Thomas Cain / . The House of Representatives has made significant progress in passing the $ 1.9 billion stimulus package proposed by President Biden.

The targeted stimulus checks currently being proposed are intended to exclude high-income individuals from receiving the money., since, in theory, they do not need the support money, because with their own income they could be able to get ahead during the current crisis.

    The Biden administration is reversing course on changes the Trump administration made to a conservation program called the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), arguing that the Trump changes “undermined” the program. Acting Interior Secretary Scott de la Vega in an order issued Thursday revoked an order by then-Secretary David Bernhardt that required a “written expression of support” for land acquired through the LWCF from both governors and local governments, effectively allowing these officials to veto any land purchases.  De la Vega’s order also reversed course on a separate action that shifted money away from an LWCF grant program that benefits urban areas, a move that critics said took resources from low-income communities and communities of color.  “Interior’s actions today affirm our support for one of America’s most successful and popular conservation programs,” Shannon Estenoz, the Interior Department’s principal deputy assistant secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks, said in a...

    Saul Loeb/AFP/Getty Images A stunning 83 percent of Americans say they support a new Covid relief package, with nearly as many saying that President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion package is either the right size — or needs to be even larger. The latest CBS News/YouGov poll shows that very few Americans are balking at the price tag on President Biden’s relief proposal. Respondents were asked “From what you have heard or read, do you think the economic relief package being discussed in Congress right now” is “too much, not enough,” or “about the right amount,” and only 20 percent say it’s too much. Among the rest, 39 percent say the package is about the right size, and a slightly greater 40 percent say it should be more. That includes 61 percent of Republicans who say the relief package is the right amount or should be larger, and 78 percent of...

    Amazon’s incoming CEO, Andy Jassy, says he’s committed to Amazon’s video game development efforts, in response to a damning report from Bloomberg last week about the problems facing the team. “Some businesses take off in the first year, and others take many years,” Jassy wrote in a staff email seen by Bloomberg, “Though we haven’t consistently succeeded yet in AGS [Amazon Game Studios], I believe we will if we hang in there.” “Being successful right away is obviously less stressful, but when it takes longer, it’s often sweeter,” Jassy continued. “I believe this team will get there if we stay focused on what matters most.” “Being successful right away is obviously less stressful, but when it takes longer, it’s often sweeter” The message comes at a critical time for Amazon Game Studios, the e-commerce giant’s video game development arm. The decision to set up the division reportedly came directly from...
    President Joe Biden will not dismantle Space Force, press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday, one day after conservatives criticized her for laughing about it during a briefing.  'They absolutely have the full support of the Biden administration,' Psaki said. 'And we are not revisiting the decision to establish the Space Force,' she told reporters Wednesday afternoon.  On Tuesday, Bloomberg's Josh Wingrove asked Psaki if the president had made a decision on whether he would keep Space Force, one of President Donald Trump's favorite legacy projects, which was formally established in December 2019.  Press secretary Jen Psaki walked back comments she made at Tuesday's briefing mocking the Space Force saying Wednesday that the military branch has the 'full support' of the Biden administration  After two powerful Republicans complained, press secretary Jen Psaki sent out a tweet Tuesday night inviting members of the Space Force to provide an update on...
    Joe Biden doubled down on his $1.9 trillion COVID relief package, reassuring Democrats he has their back as they lay the groundwork to muscle through the president's proposal without Republican support.  Biden called into the House Democratic Caucus weekly meeting on Wednesday morning, where he reassured his party a Republican proposal for $600 billion in relief is 'not even in the cards.'  'I’m not going to start my administration by breaking a promise to the American people,'  he said.  The president, in his five minute pep talk, told House Democrats to stick together. 'I have your back and you will have mine,' he said according to Politico.  He also vowed to boost stimulus checks to $2,000, by adding another $1,400 in direct payments as part of his relief measure.  Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris will meet with Democratic senators on the COVID relief proposal later Wednesday in the Oval Office.   The...
    As Democrats work toward passage of President Biden's American Rescue Plan to address the coronavirus, polling from multiple outlets keeps reinforcing that they should put the pedal to the metal on that package and more. Fresh polling from Yahoo News/YouGov shows that most of Biden’s proposals are at least twice as popular as the opposition to them, and almost half of them are favored by more than 60% of Americans, a measure that should embolden Democrats. In essence, Biden's agenda is unifying Americans around a set of common goals—a notable achievement, particularly in these fraught times. Nowhere is that more true than with Biden's coronavirus relief package. The survey of 1,516 U.S. adults conducted Jan. 20 - 21 found overwhelming support for Biden's key relief initiatives and even those some consider to be more controversial: $2000 direct payments: 74% of Americans support it, 13% oppose Federal vaccination funding:...
    (CNN)On Monday, President Joe Biden met with 10 Republican US senators at the White House to discuss a roughly $618 billion recovery package they introduced to address the economic and health challenges created by Covid-19. The meeting should be one of many Biden has to make good on his campaign promise to work across the aisle and find a solution that can garner significant bipartisan support. A failure to do so risks not only eroding whatever goodwill he may have built with the calls for unity in his inaugural address, but also his opportunity to secure other bipartisan wins as his time in office goes on. Lanhee J. Chen At the same time, congressional Democrats are moving ahead with an effort to force through relief legislation without Republican support and on a strict party-line vote. Practically speaking, there are policy, political and procedural reasons for Biden to shun this...
    Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer introduced their budget proposal on Monday that also will pave the way for Joe Biden to pass his $1.9 trillion COVID relief plan without any Republican support.  The Democratic congressional leaders dropped their plan an hour before Biden was to meet with Republican senators at the White House to discuss a compromise proposal from the GOP - one that is considerably less than the president's, clocking in at $600 billion for coronavirus relief.   Pelosi and Schumer's resolution contains a provision for a process called 'reconciliation' - a legislative procedure that allows them to prevent the use of the filibuster in the Senate and lets the legislation pass with a simply majority of 51 votes.  With an even 50-50 split in the upper chamber and Vice President Kamala Harris the tie breaker, Biden would be able to get his $1.9 trillion plan without any Republicans on board.  Republicans...

    Large corporations have endorsed and lobbied for a $15 federal minimum wage in recent years, but while they can afford such a policy, small businesses would be harmed, multiple studies have shown. “More than doubling the federal minimum wage is one of the policies that would threaten the fragile small business economic recovery,” said National Federation of Independent Business Vice President of Federal Government Relations Kevin Kuhlman. The $15 minimum wage would result in 1.3 million workers losing their jobs, a 2019 Congressional Budget Office report estimated. Large corporations have endorsed and lobbied for a $15 federal minimum wage in recent years, but while they can afford such a policy, small businesses would be harmed, studies have shown.

    William B. Plowman/NBC NBC News retracted a story about a member of the Biden administration contributing to a pro-Israel political action committee — but curiously left the full story up on its website. NBC said that “in the interest of transparency,” it was leaving the story posted in its “archives” and provided a link to the full story. “Earlier today, NBC News published an article reporting that a family foundation linked to President Joe Biden’s senior director for cyber policy on the White House National Security Council donated more than $500,000 in recent years to AIPAC, the largest pro-Israel lobbying group in Washington,” the company noted in a message published on its website. “After a number of readers raised issues with this article, NBC News conducted a review and has determined that it fell short of our reporting standards.” “In order to warrant publication, it needed on-the-record quotes from critics, rather...
    Users caught between Apple and Microsoft may now have an easier time managing passwords: it looks like iCloud Keychain is coming to Windows 10 as a Chrome extension (via MacRumors). It’s already in the iCloud for Windows 10 app, but there’s just one small problem: the Chrome Extension isn’t available yet. The latest version of iCloud for Windows 10 includes “Support for iCloud Passwords Chrome Extension” in the list of new features, and when you open the app, there’s a new Passwords-syncing option. Checking the box will cause a login prompt to come up, along with a request for two-factor authentication. According to Apple’s support page, you’ll need to have two-factor turned on for your account to have access to the feature, which is probably a good choice since, in theory, you’re going to be syncing all of your passwords. I say “in theory” because after you log in...
    By Chauncey Alcorn | CNN Business Ben & Jerry’s two co-founders want to make it easier for Americans to sue police officers who abuse their authority, a move that reform advocates say is a key step towards substantive police reform.

Activist Shaun King and rapper Michael “Killer Mike” Render joined the meeting along with other reform advocates.

    Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell testifies before the Senate Banking Committee hearing on "The Quarterly CARES Act Report to Congress" on Capitol Hill in Washington, December 1, 2020.Susan Walsh | Pool | Reuters Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has a few nerves to quell among market participants wondering when the central banks will start tapping the brakes on all the help it's been providing. The big buzzword surrounding the Fed now is "tapering." It's a reference to pulling back on the monthly bond purchases that have helped keep the financial system flush with cash and have encouraged investors to continue to take on risk despite stock market valuations that are their highest since at least the dotcom bubble of the early 21st century. Markets figure that as long as the Fed keeps pumping, then it's safe to keep buying. Powell and other central bank officials say they're committed to keeping...
    VIDEO1:2801:28What $15 an hour minimum wage means for Main StreetPower Lunch While small business owners are cheering President Joe Biden's plans to direct more aid to a Main Street that has been ravaged by the pandemic, they're also debating another of his pledges — hiking the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour. Workers' rights groups are cheering the move, but advocates for America's smallest businesses are warning such an increase could stall an already challenging economic recovery on the road back to stability from the health crisis. Biden's plans would more than double the current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour, which has not moved since 2009, despite repeated efforts by Democrats to increase pay for low-wage workers. A 2019 report from the Congressional Budget Office projected that hiking the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour gradually by 2025 would increase pay for 17 million workers but...

    HOUSE Democrats are looking to introduce a bill that would offer at least $3,000 a month for each child a family - but President Biden would only support the bill for one year.

    Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser told  “Just the News” on Friday that the Democratic-led Senate and House will vote in favor of statehood for the District of Columbia and send the bill to President Joe Biden’s desk, who has expressed support for D.C. statehood in the past. Bowser said, “The nation’s capital, the federal enclave, continues to exist as the nation’s capital and everything outside of those new boundaries becomes the 51st state. Our congresswoman – we had our first successful vote on statehood in the House of Representatives last year. She reintroduced the bill. She has a record number of sponsors.” She continued, “It is going to be reintroduced in the Senate in a couple of weeks, and we expect to have a favorable vote in the Senate as well, and then it goes to the president of the United States.

And I intend to do everything I can to make that happen. I would love to have ten Republicans supporting that legislation.

    On a momentous week for the future of American foreign policy, a new poll conducted in all fifty states finds that Americans are united in their strong support for the United Nations. WASHINGTON, Jan. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — On a momentous week for the future of American foreign policy, a new poll conducted in all fifty states finds that Americans are united in their strong support for the United Nations. The poll comes on the eve of the inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris, upcoming Senate hearings on the nomination of Antony Blinken to be Secretary of State and Linda Thomas-Greenfield for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and the expected policy reversal of key global agreements such as rejoining the Paris Agreement and the repeal of the Global Gag Rule. “When it comes to America’s relationship with the UN, this poll shows there is no...
    MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has become the subject of a flurry of hilarious memes as he stands firm in his insistence that Joe Biden did not win the election, despite offering no proof. Lindell called for a military coup following a meeting with President Donald Trump at the White House on Friday, where he was pictured holding notes about martial law and the Insurrection Act. At the meeting, Trump's informal adviser - a former crack addict-turned pillow company boss - presented the president with new baseless theories regarding so-called election fraud. Yet even Trump was ‘disinterested’ and Lindell has found himself at the center of a new wave of online jokes, as companies also abandon his business because he refuses to give up the deluded claims.  MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell has become the subject of a flurry of memes as he stands firm in his insistence that Joe Biden...
    NYU professor Cristina Beltran wrote the op-ed for The Washington Post last week  An NYU professor has been slammed for claiming in a Washington Post op-ed that black and Hispanic voters supported Trump because of something called 'multiracial whiteness' which separates them from their own race.  Cristina Beltran - who describes herself using the gender neutral term 'Latinx' -  wrote last week that it was a surprise to see Latino and black faces among the MAGA mob that stormed the Capitol, and that it was also 'unsettling' that  'a quarter to a third of Latino voters voted to re-elect Trump'.  She rationalized their preference for him with the idea of 'multiracial whiteness' which is the idea that white is more than a race or racial identity.  'What are we to make Latino voters inspired by Trump? And what are we to make of unmistakably White mob violence that also includes...

    Multiple Democratic House lawmakers who tested positive for COVID-19 after sheltering in a secure room during last week’s Capitol riots have blamed their GOP colleagues for refusing to wear masks. But more than a week after that event, it remains unclear whether the Republican lawmakers who eschewed wearing a mask during the lockdown are responsible.   Although it is not certain where and when lawmakers got infected, the Capitol’s attending physician told House lawmakers of possible virus exposure while some of its members were cloistered together. FILE: Trump supporters try to break through a police barrier at the Capitol in Washington.  (AP) A video later released by Punchbowl News showed about six House Republicans on video huddled together and maskless during the lockdown as Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6.

    Nike joined the barrage of companies announcing financial sanctions against Republican lawmakers who opposed certifying the 2020 Electoral College results. In a statement, the shoe and athletic wear company said it “will not support any member of Congress … who voted to decertify the Electoral College results” through its PAC.

Nike’s PAC overwhelmingly supports Democratic candidates anyway. In the 2020 election cycle, over 75 percent of its $213,000 in political spending went to support Democratic candidates. Eighty-two percent of spending in House races went to Democrats. Only five Republicans who received money from Nike’s PAC voted against certification, David Kustoff of Tennessee,...
    (CNN)Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott, the new chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, defended President Donald Trump on Wednesday when asked if his ally bore any responsibility for inciting a riot at the US Capitol, putting the onus of last week's death and destruction instead on the mob."He's not the one who made the decision to breach this Capitol," Scott said.Scott's comments came as the pro-Trump riot has torn apart the Republican Party, setting off a backlash among some donors, a historic second impeachment of the President and a fight over how best to build a path back to power.After losing the House, Senate and White House in four years, Trump remains broadly popular within the GOP. But the riot has led a small group of House Republicans -- including Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 in GOP leadership in the chamber -- to support his impeachment. Republican senators...

    South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham spoke out on Wednesday against the second impeachment of President Donald Trump over whether he incited an insurrection, arguing that it could “incite further violence” and that his fellow Republicans supporting the effort were hurting their party. “To my Republican colleagues who legitimize this process, you are doing great damage not only to the country, the future of the presidency, but also to the party,” Graham said on Twitter. Supporting the impeachment of President Trump under these circumstances will do great damage to the institutions of government and could invite further violence at a time the President is calling for calm. — Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) January 13, 2021 The House began debate on whether to impeach the president for inciting an insurrection Wednesday afternoon.

    David Cordani, chief executive officer of Cigna Corp.Adam Jeffery | CNBC Heath insurer Cigna will stop giving money to elected officials who "encouraged or supported violence" during last week's siege of the U.S. Capitol by followers of President Donald Trump, CNBC has learned.

    By KATHLEEN RONAYNE | The Associated Press SACRAMENTO  — California Gov. Gavin Newsom added his support Monday for removing President Donald Trump from office through impeachment or the 25th Amendment. “I’m all for it,” the Democratic governor said in response to a question about his stance on both options, before quickly changing the subject. “That’s not my focus right now. My focus, candidly, is on you and your family, as it relates to issues associated with getting us through this very challenging wave in this pandemic,” he said, referencing the effort to vaccinate California’s nearly 40 million residents against the coronavirus. Newsom’s approval of removing Trump put him in line with U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California. The House will begin debate Wednesday on an impeachment resolution charging Trump with “incitement of insurrection.” While California has been at odds with the Trump administration since the Republican took office in...

    Savannah Rychcik January 10, 2021 0 Comments House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is reiterating her support for invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office. CBS’s Leslie Stahl pressed Pelosi during a “60 Minutes” interview scheduled to air on Sunday night on what will happen if Trump pardons himself. “He can only pardon himself from federal offenses. He cannot pardon himself from state offenses and that’s where he’s being investigated in the state of New York,” Pelosi said. Stahl argued it is possible there could ultimately be no punishment or consequences and he could potentially run for president again. “And that’s one of the motivations people have for advocating for impeachment,” Pelosi continued.

YouGov Direct conducted the survey on Wednesday night between 5:17 pm and 5:42 pm.

    Former FDA associate commissioner Peter Pitts says Americans should assume a new mutant strain of COVID-19 detected in South Africa is already in the States  A former FDA official has revealed he does not support imposing a ban on South African travelers to the US, despite fears a new, super-infectious COVID-19 variant detected in the country could spread to the states.  Peter Pitts, the co-founder of the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest, said Americans should assume the mutant strain already exists in the country.  'It's probably not nascent and it's probably been around a lot longer than South Africans think,' Pitts told DailyMail.com on Tuesday.   Both Britain and South Africa have detected new, more transmissible variants of the COVID-19-causing virus in recent weeks that have driven a surge in cases.  The US has imposed restrictions on travelers from the UK in an effort to reduce the spread of...

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are 'pointless in self-exile' and it would have been 'great to have heard' the Duke supporting the NHS during the Covid-19 crisis like the Cambridges have, a royal biographer has claimed. The Duke, 36, and Duchess of Sussex, 39, are currently living in their $14 million Californian mansion with eighteen-month-old son Archie, having stepped back from royal duty in March. Royal expert Hugo Vickers said Prince Harry is 'isolated from his family, the army, his friends, the Commonwealth' in the US, telling The Telegraph: 'It’s a pointless existence in self-exile.'

    A mother-of-three has admitted she takes support money she 'doesn't need' from her ill ex-husband - even though it means he will 'never be able to retire'.  The unnamed parent, from the US, took to Reddit's Am I The A******  to share her feelings of guilt and explain that her former husband was put in this position after he shunned their third child and refuses to meet her. The mother, who has three children, Sam, 19, Beth, 16 and Ann, 13, explained the duo had always planned to have that many, but that her husband 'changed his mind' during her third pregnancy, and urged her to give up their youngest for adaption. This led the pair to divorce and the unnamed father being forced by a judge to send a substantial amount of child support for all three children - despite trying to send less money by quickly changing careers.  The mother added...
    Congress rescue aid: A dose of support, but is it enough?
    I first wore the SKIMS maternity sculpting short for my gender reveal. Celia Fernandez/Insider/SKIMS Kim Kardashian West's shapewear brand, SKIMS, released its first maternity collection in September.  When it was announced, Kardashian West faced backlash from people who misunderstood the purpose of the maternity garments.  Kardashian West clarified that the SKIMS maternity products are meant "not to slim, but to support" pregnant bodies. I ordered the nursing bra ($42) in two different colors and the sculpting short mid-thigh ($34) and wore the latter on two different occasions.  Although I haven't tried the nursing bras yet, I've worn the pair of shorts several times. Despite how hard they are to put on, I enjoy that they have a convenient "pee hole" design, don't roll down, and smooth out and support my baby bump. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.
    By CHRISTOPHER RUGABER, AP Economics Writers WASHINGTON (AP) — The $900 billion economic relief package that emerged from Congress over the weekend will deliver vital aid to millions of households and businesses that have been struggling for months to survive. Yet with the economy still in the grip of a pandemic that has increasingly tightened curbs on business activity, more federal support will likely be needed soon. And it's unclear whether or when the government might provide it. For now, the package that congressional leaders agreed to Sunday will provide urgently needed benefits to the unemployed, loans to help small businesses stay open and up to $600 in cash payments to most individuals. It will also help families facing evictions remain in their homes. The measure includes no budgetary help, though, for states and localities that are being forced to turn to layoffs and service cuts as their tax revenue...

    The British government on Thursday criticized the United Nation’s children’s fund (UNICEF) for what it described as a "political stunt of the lowest order" after the organization pledged money for food boxes in the U.K. UNICEF plans to give a £25,000 (or nearly $40,000) grant to the School Food Matters charity, which said it will use the money to provide breakfast boxes to schools over Christmas in south London. LONDON TO IMPOSE NEW CORONAVIRUS PREVENTION MEASURES AMID RISING INFECTIONS Leader of the House of Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg reacted angrily to the news. "I think it's a real scandal that UNICEF should be playing politics in this way when it is meant to be looking after people in the poorest and most deprived countries in the world where people are starving, where there are famines, and where there are civil wars," he said in the Commons. "And they make cheap political points of this kind,...
    Community members in California are upset after their local city council called the “thin blue line” flag a racist symbol. Upset at the city council’s declaration, these community members decided to protest by waving the pro-law enforcement flag in downtown Livermore, California, KTVU reported. Last week, a Livermore city council committee deemed the “thin blue line” flag, along with the Confederate flag, racist symbols. The committee — comprised of community members and council members — was conducting an “inventory of racist symbols.” The city council committee’s reasoning for taking inventory of these symbols had to do with making sure only inclusive symbols were displayed at city-owned properties. Officials involved in the discussions hoped to make things transparent by posting the discussion notes of the committee online, the Pleasanton Weekly reported. However, their plan backfired on them, ruffling the feathers of many residents. The Alameda County Sheriff was one of those people who begged...
    Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Jon Hatami, who rose to prominence as the lead prosecutor in the Gabriel Fernandez case, told "Fox & Friends" the newly elected D.A.'s directives are not supported by his own prosecutors or the citizens who voted for him. New District Attorney George Gascon is facing backlash for his extreme liberal policies, including ending cash bail and the death penalty, as well as lessening charges against those accused of violent crimes -- including child rapists and murderers. "It's shocking," said Hatami, a nearly 15-year veteran of the DA's office. "The new D.A. has no compassion for victims. He has spoken to no victims ... in my cases or any case that I know about." TUCKER CARLSON: GEORGE SOROS, GEORGE GASCÓN AND THE FALL OF LOS ANGELES There is growing support among the roughly 800 deputy district attorneys who work for Gascon to file a state bar complaint against him,...
    DONALD Trump's wife doesn't support him running in the 2024 election as a White House insider said it "might not go over well" with Flotus.

    Talk show legend Larry King has agreed to pay his estranged wife Shawn $20,000 in a lump sum, plus $33,000 a month in spousal support. The monthly payment - revealed in new court documents obtained by DailyMail.com - will last at least until the couple's next Los Angeles Superior Court hearing, scheduled for April 29 next year. While $33,000 per month may seem like a large sum, it only covers about a third of Shawn's monthly expenses, which she has listed in court papers as just under $90,000. That includes $25,000 per month for rent on her luxury home, $12,000 on clothes, $3,500 on groceries, $4,500 for 'hair, nails, pet care and gym', plus $6,300 a month for her vacation home in Provo, Utah.
