’I did some:

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – About a week after the Moderna vaccine, some people develop a reaction. “We’ve had a few cases. Folks have reached out because it’s a little unusual,” says Asti Drug pharmacist Chris Antypas.

It did itch.” An itchy, red rash pops up on the arm that was injected. This can happen up to a week later. “It is some sort of immune reaction,” says Dr. James DeAngelo of Allergy and Clinical Immunology Associates. “It’s technically not an allergy. It’s...
    On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci responded to a question on Florida having a lower coronavirus death rate than states that had far stricter restrictions by stating that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) did some things right, but also that DeSantis did some things that he didn’t agree with. When Fauci was pressed for more detail he said, “some of the things that were done down there by people at the local level really actually did work.” Host Erin Burnett asked, “In Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis, as you know, right, long opposed to mask mandates, lockdowns of any sort, school closures. But what’s interesting about Florida, and I wanted to give you a chance to talk about this, because Florida ranks 27th in the nation for per capita deaths from the virus. Some states that shut down, obviously, and had all those...
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has admitted it did not perform contact tracing on flights that some of the earliest patients with the UK and Brazil coronavirus variants were on. In one weekly report, the federal health agency discussed a patient who traveled to the UK and came back infected with the country's highly contagious variant. However, because nearly two weeks had passed between the person's arrival and the confirmation they had the mutant strain, the CDC decided against contact tracing and just sent an informal notification to states that a variant had been detected. In another report, officials documented the first two cases of Americans infected with the variant first seen in Brazil. Once again, the CDC declined to perform m a full investigation and instead contacted individual state health departments where some passengers lived to inform them. However, the agency said that is has found...
    Spotify Joe Rogan. Joe Rogan recently talked about how things have been going since his move to Spotify and claims from his fans that the streaming service is censoring him and deleting older controversial episodes from his catalog. Rogan said during a February podcast episode that it is true some of his past episodes weren’t moved over to the Spotify platform, but said the streaming service is not censoring him or dictating who he interviews. Rogan announced in May 2020 the Joe Rogan Experience would be moving to Spotify exclusively after previously posting his podcast episodes on YouTube, Apple podcasts and elsewhere, gaining a following of more than 9.5 million people. According to The Wall Street Journal, Rogan’s deal with the streaming service is worth more than $100 million. The deal included moving hundreds of episodes dating from his 11 years of podcasting onto Spotify alone. Rogan...
    Now it’s the Democrats’ turn to be mad at the media. And a moment of truth for journalists who have achieved fame and sometimes fortune during a state of virtual war against Donald Trump. I’ve been saying since the election that the country will be watching as the mainstream press, which openly allied itself with the Resistance, adjusts to the reality of a Democratic administration. And there have been some encouraging signs that journalists don’t just plan to roll over for President Biden. When Biden took no action against the Saudi crown prince for ordering the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to U.S. intelligence, he got more than just criticism from major news outlets and commentators. He drew moral condemnation for the first time in his brief tenure. Whether it was the editorial page of the Washington Post (where Khashoggi was a contributor) or New York Times or CNN’s...
    By Gus Russo Over the last four decades I have navigated the murky shoals of the JFK assassination, seeking to ascertain the truth with an open mind to all possibilities. The multitude of theories that have crossed my transom over all these years range from the ludicrous (Jackie did it) to the most plausible (Oswald did it.) On these treks, and in literally thousands of interviews, I have come to admire—with some exceptions—the men and women of our intelligence services. So it was with a degree of shock that I recently learned that former CIA Director R. James Woolsey had co-authored a new book that posits a conspiracy theory that resides much closer to the ludicrous side of the JFK spectrum than the plausible, i.e. Khrushchev did it. In Operation Dragon, co-authored with a former head of Romanian intelligence, the writers channel Qanon-style nonsense by contending that the Warren Commission...

    Luis Suarez is shining with its own light in the Atlético de Madrid. With 16 goals in 18 league games, the Uruguayan is the main offensive weapon of the de Simeone And, although he has a clause in his contract that would allow him to go free in the summer, he has acknowledged that he is enjoying the good time he is going through in the football elite because “being at Atlético you are still in the football elite.” The forward assures that he hopes to continue “this, next year and whatever years, competing to the fullest.” «I don’t see myself in MLS or in Qatar, I still see myself enjoying the moment I’m living today in the elite of football, because being at Atlético you are still in the elite of football. Some did not believe that he could continue to be. I keep seeing myself following with the...
    President Joe Biden told reporters Thursday that he thinks that House impeachment managers’ Wednesday arguments might change some minds on whether or not the Senate should convict former President Donald Trump. The president’s comments came during an Oval Office spray where he clarified that, as promised, he did not watch any of Wednesday’s proceedings live.

    A number of people who took part in the pro-Trump mob that overran the U.S. Capitol last month in opposition to the presidential election results did not vote in the race, a new analysis has found.  According to CNN, which reviewed voting records from states where rioters were arrested or had a history of residence, eight of those facing charges in connection to the Jan. 6 insurrection did not cast a ballot in the November race. Former U.S. Marine Donovan Crowl was one of those people, according to CNN. Crowl is reportedly a member of the right-wing extremist group Oath Keepers. The group, which the network described as a “self-styled militia organization,” has a reputation for trying to recruit service members and veterans. Crowl’s mother told CNN that the veteran said “they were going to overtake the government if they...tried to take Trump's presidency from him.” She also said Crowl...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Payton Pritchard remains sidelined with a right MCL that he suffered last Friday. But on Wednesday, just five days after the injury, the Celtics guard was putting up some shots on the floor. Pritchard did some light shooting ahead of Boston’s loss to the Spurs in San Antonio on Wednesday night. As you can see, he doesn’t have much lift at the moment, but it’s a fairly promising sign that he’s out there doing something.

    Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) heaped praised on President Joe Biden in a Tuesday interview with CNN’s Don Lemon and said he found at least some of former President Donald Trump’s voters to be “redeemable.” “Republicans are kind of thinking they did well, you know, in the state and local elections,” Kasich told Lemon. “They did. But you knoow why they did well is — they ran a campaign saying Democrats wanted to defund police, that they’re socialist, you know, that they’re going to completely wreck the economy. Now that we elected Joe Biden — and, you know, I think …. he’s getting pretty good grades from people who are not just in the political bubble.

    After four years of Donald Trump tarnishing the White House, many of us participated in a collective sigh of relief on Wednesday afternoon as President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris took office. Not everything is fixed, of course; we’ve lost more than 400,000 lives to the novel coronavirus pandemic, families have been torn apart due to heinous immigration policies, and countless marginalized folks have faced terrifying levels of discrimination, intimidation, and violence bolstered under Trump’s hateful rhetoric. Still, today feels like a gentle balm after an exhausting presidential term. Outgoing presidents leaving a note for their successor in the Oval Office is a bit of a modern tradition, starting with former president Ronald Reagan. Surprisingly, the 45th president did not blow off the Inauguration Day custom according to Judd Deere, a spokesperson for Trump. Deere told Politico that Trump did leave a note for Biden on the Resolute Desk. What...
    Opinion: The urgent question posed by One Night in Miami Strategic Petroleum Reserve Fast Facts As Trump exits Washington, he tells modest crowd, ‘We will be back in some form’ President Trump departed Washington for the final time Wednesday morning with a melancholy farewell — and a vow to return to the political arena — though he still did not directly acknowledge that voters had turned him out. Load Error Though Trump had imagined a showy military send-off that more resembled authoritarian pageantry than the placid rituals of American electoral democracy, those dreams were dashed as only a modest crowd of a few hundred aides and other loyalists showed up at Joint Base Andrews to see him off. “This is a great, great country. It is my greatest honor and privilege to have been your president,” Trump said, as his audience chanted, “Thank...
    In the 1990s and early 2000s, HBO's Sex and the City was just as well known for its influence on fashion, with revered stylist Patricia Field in charge of the wardrobe department, as it was for its racy scenes.  To this day, Carrie Bradshaw is a byword for iconic style in fashion bibles such as Vogue, and with the announcement that the show is making a comeback, fans have rushed to the internet to start recreating her looks.   Consumer shopping app LIKEtoKNOW.it recorded that searches for Manolo Blahniks, berets and Carrie Bradshaw have skyrocketed by as much as 2,900 per cent since the announcement the show is set to grace our screens once again.  However, revisiting the show today proves that some of the outfits showcased by Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte were more car crash than chic - namely tie dye leggings, dubious cowboy hats and baggy dungarees.  One dubious...
    CHICAGO (CBS) —  On Tuesday morning, the Chicago Teachers Union got together virtually to talk about the Chicago School Board’s decision to dock pay, if teachers don’t return to in-person classes. A North Side elementary school teacher said a staff member tested positive for COVID, after setting up her classroom last week. On Monday, CPS said 145 employees were AWOL, absent without leave. That’s out of 3,800 who were scheduled to show up. On Tuesday morning, one teacher said CPS is ignoring the health risks created by such a large school district with so many people. “I think it’s very irresponsible to compare what other school districts are doing and how successfully they’re doing it, when we being such a large school district with so many different types and sizes of schools, are rushing and not properly prepared,” said CPS teacher Diana Muhammad. Only preschoolers and special education students started...
    NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP/Getty Images President Donald Trump either took “some” responsibility for the Capitol insurrection or was blamed for it by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, depending on whose reporting you believe. McCarthy held a conference call with members of the lower chamber’s Republican caucus Monday, and according to Politico’s Melanie Zanona, he told those members that Trump accepted some responsibility for last Wednesday’s attack during a personal phone call. “NEWS: McCarthy tells Republicans on a call just now that Trump told him he does bear some responsibility for the Capitol riots, per source,” Zanona wrote on Twitter Monday, and cited a second source from colleague Olivia Beavers as well. And @Olivia_Beavers has a second source who confirms this as well. — Melanie Zanona (@MZanona) January 11, 2021 Nearly simultaneously, however, Punchbowl’s Jake Sherman reported that McCarthy told his conference that Trump “does bear some responsibility for the riot at...
    Last week was a cacophony of horrible Trump-related news, but this is the one that hit home hardest for me: a manatee with his name scraped into its back was found in the headwaters of Florida’s Homosassa river (via Citrus County Chronicle). At the moment it’s unclear whether the animal was actually injured, or if the name was just scraped into the algae on its back, but it’s a crime either way. While US Fish and Wildlife officials told the Chronicle that they “[could not] comment on a current, ongoing investigation”, they’re asking anyone who may have information about who did this to reach out to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The Center for Biological Diversity is also offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction. An investigation could be difficult, though — manatees are, of course, live creatures, and while this particular one was...

    Wednesday, during an appearance on FBN’s “Mornings with Maria,” Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-OH), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, offered remarks on reported allegations that Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) had a close relationship with a Chinese spy, who later fled back to China without the FBI under the leadership of Robert Mueller and James Comey taking action. Wenstrup speculated that the FBI had a habit of “protecting Democrats.” “That is a major concern because if something like this took place, and if Mr. Swalwell is innocent in every regard, we would be warned that this type of activity is taking place, and we should be on guard for Chinese activity,” he said. “We get some of that information as members of the military. We understand that these types of things take place. But we didn’t get any of that information. And I want to know when — what did...
    Insider recently spoke with 12 Americans who moved out of the US because of President Donald Trump. They range in age from 21 to 61, and cited a number of reasons for their moves abroad — from fears for LGBTQ rights to access to healthcare.  Some said they experienced racial aggression from Trump supporters. Two women of color recounted terrifying road-rage incidents. They also discussed the difficulties and cost of moving abroad. While many of the expats were heartened by Biden's win, most said they have no plans to return to the US anytime soon.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Weeks before the 2016 election, Michelle Dallochio was driving home when she had a frightening encounter with an apparent Donald Trump supporter.

    Actor Matthew McConaughey has accused political 'illiberals' of 'completely 'illegitimising the other side' - saying that liberals are 'often being cannibalised' by hardliners on left and right.  The Oscar winner, who has been touted as a possible candidate for governor of Texas in the future, said there is 'no room for any consensus' and accused both sides of 'exaggerating' each other's positions into an 'irrational state'.  Speaking on ITV's Good Morning Britain, he did not identify himself with either Democrats or Republicans - saying that 'there are extremes on both sides that I think are unfair' - although he has previously been described as 'centre-right'.  'You need liberals, what I don't think we need is the illiberals and what I don't think that some liberals see is that they're often being cannibalised by the illiberals,' he said.  Actor Matthew McConaughey (pictured) has accused political 'illiberals' of 'completely 'illegitimising the other...
    Bryan Bedder/Getty Images for Sleep Number Former couple, Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen, at an event. Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen haven’t talked much about the specifics of their recent split, but there have been some subtle digs on social media. The latest came from Kufrin when she was asked on Instagram when she plans on starting to date again. “I will start dating preferably when restaurants start opening up again, and when I find somebody who is not offended if I keep my last name,” Kufrin said. With Kufrin relatively fresh out of a long-term relationship that was so close to becoming a marriage, it’s hard to imagine her comment about changing her last name being about anyone other than Yrigoyen. In a later question, Kufrin was asked how to avoid seeing social media posts from an ex. “So there’s this really awesome tool on Instagram, it’s...
    In the wake of the Mets’ selection of Jared Porter as their next general manager, I reached out to a longtime talent evaluator who has worked alongside Porter and got to know Sandy Alderson well during Alderson’s time at Major League Baseball’s central headquarters. “I can see how those two brains are wired pretty similarly,” the person opined, on the condition of anonymity, of Porter and Alderson. “They’re both very analytical, very process-oriented. I think that’s going to be a very interesting match together.” The Mets’ odyssey for a top baseball official, which started Nov. 7 when Alderson fired Brodie Van Wagenen and his top four deputies about an hour after Steve Cohen closed on his purchase of the team, landed on the 41-year-old Porter on Saturday, a long, strange trip from team president Alderson’s original plan — to land a big name to lead baseball operations — to tabbing...

    Giants’ Joe Judge channeling some of what Barry Trotz did to turn the Islanders around By: Rob Taub December 8, 2020 ShareTweetFlipRedditDon’t look now, but the New York football  Giants have crawled out of the abyss and are sitting in first place in the NFC East. Hats off to Joe Judge and the tremendous job he’s done so far to get things turn around and get all his guys to buy in. But where have we seen this quick transformation before? Look no further than when Barry Trotz took over behind the bench for the Islanders. From the moment he arrived, the entire atmosphere around the franchise had changed. The culture — most overused but important word in sports. Accountability. Attitude. Standards. All of it felt different. More than all of those things: he instilled belief in his players.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – It’s the law in Pennsylvania that dietary supplements can’t be taxed, but a KDKA Investigation found out some receipts say otherwise. “Whether it’s done or purpose or not doesn’t matter for purposes of this lawsuit,” said attorney Frank Salpietro. Salpietro filed a class action lawsuit against Target. It accuses the retail giant of disregarding state law and collecting sales tax on dietary supplements. The lawsuit uses the example of a client who bought the supplement 5-Hour Energy and noticed sales tax on the receipt. He also filed similar suits against Walmart and Giant Eagle. “The incentive is that they now have to make it right, not only under Pennsylvania law, but for the individual consumers and that could amount to millions and millions of dollars,” Salpietro said. Salpietro’s lawsuit highlights what he calls a kickback. The state gives retailers 1% back on all collected sales...

    Patients who recover from coronavirus may suffer from cognitive issues post-infection, particularly those who develop a severe case of the illness, a new study suggests. The study, which is not yet peer-reviewed, analyzed data from 84,285 Great British Intelligence Test participants who completed a questionnaire regarding suspected and biologically confirmed COVID-19 infection. The test is part of an ongoing collaborative project with BBC2 Horizon and was not advertised as a coronavirus-related questionnaire, the study authors noted. Of the test participants, 60 reported being put on a ventilator, 147 others were hospitalized but did not need a ventilator, 176 received medical assistance at home for respiratory difficulties, 3,466 had respiratory issues but did not receive medical assistance, and 9,201 were ill without respiratory symptoms.

    By Alan Charlish and Marcin Goclowski WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland has made it easier for Belarusians fleeing political persecution to enter, but for Seda Yunusova, a Chechen who was refused the opportunity to apply for asylum 16 times in 2016 and 2017, this is little comfort. "With all this that is going on I am fearful again," Yunusova told Reuters by telephone from the village of Dymna, near the Belarusian border city of Brest, where she has settled with her eight children. Like other places in Belarus, Brest has seen violent anti-government protests, and Yunusova says signs of conflict are present in her village. "God forbid we would have to seek refuge again." Yunusova says she and her family fled Chechnya after her husband refused to serve in the Russian army in Ukraine in 2014, having already been deployed there the previous year. She says his military service meant the...
    The first thing you notice when you see a bird is the amazing ability to fly. Modern birds fly using their “hands”, which are feathered and very strong Air muscles. But the ancestors of today’s birds could not fly. Birds evolved from a group of dinosaurs called theropods that walked on land. This includes such giant meat eaters Tyrannosaurus Rex, As well as very small, fast-moving dinosaurs. Fossils of many of these tiny dinosaurs show that they are simple Fluffy feathers, But their hands are too small or too weak to fly. Some too Giant dinosaurs There may have been feathers as well.Many Theropod dinosaurs had feathers like their predecessors, but certainly did not fly. Fred Diamond / Wikimedia Commons, CCBY-SASo what were the dinosaurs doing with their feathers if they did not use them to fly? Let’s look for clues in today’s birds. The short, fluffy feathers help modern...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota is seeing a brief glimpse of winter-like conditions Friday, with snowflakes falling hard in some areas. Some areas, like St. Augusta, reported a half an inch of snow accumulation on the grass Friday morning. A somewhat unusual sight in mid-October. Snow showers & squalls are moving through quickly, but the snow is also FALLING quickly in a handful of communities. Like St. Augusta, where our Weather Watcher Timothy says 1/2" accumulated on the grass! (CC: @NWSTwinCities) #mnwx pic.twitter.com/grCt9aJQAB — Mike Augustyniak (@MikeAugustyniak) October 16, 2020 So, what causes these conditions? According to meteorologist Mike Augustyniak, it has to do with the way air is moving upward, causing perfect conditions for a certain type of snowflake, called dendrites, to form. Here’s his explanation. At least twice a day @NWSTwinCities (and other @NOAA sites) launches a weather balloon to sample the temperature, humidity,...
    If TV networks want to air free infomercials to help Joe Biden — as ABC, CNN and NBC have been doing via their “town halls” — that’s their business. But pretending these events are even-handed is absurd. NBC this week even tried to fraudulently pass off blatant Biden backers as neutral, uncommitted voters. “We are surrounded by dozens of undecided voters,” NBC’s Lester Holt claimed. Yet what followed was a nonstop volley of softballs and loaded, anti-Trump questions: Was Biden surprised President Trump got COVID? How will Biden lead the nation when faced with “bullies” like Trump? Not asked were questions like: Does Biden embrace Democrats’ threat to pack the Supreme Court if Amy Coney Barrett is confirmed? And why hasn’t he blasted Antifa or Black Lives Matter violence? Nor did anyone ask about his waffling on fracking or the Green New Deal. Or grill him on the millions his...
    Fitness model Jen Selter took to Instagram on Friday night to show off her sculpted physique and share some motivational thoughts with her millions of followers. The 27-year-old brunette beauty embraced the fact that it was Friday and she made an effort to encourage her fans. She looked fabulous while doing it and everybody seemed to adore this post. The post consisted of a lengthy caption and a short video. Jen wore a gray sports bra and matching skintight textured leggings, a set that beautifully accentuated every curve of her incredible figure. For the duration of the clip, Jen stood outdoors on a balcony that overlooked the city. She leaned against the metal railing atop the glass panes of the enclosure and it seemed that a light breeze blew and whipped around some of her long tresses. Jen smiled as she gazed out over the city and looked toward the...
    Diego Maradona has slammed his critics after he took wearing a face visor to a new extreme in a bid to protect himself from contracting coronavirus during Gimnasia's friendly at San Lorenzo. On Wednesday, the Gimnasia manager arrived for their encounter with a huge clear face mask that covered the top of his head to beyond his chin. The Argentina legend had his seven-year son Diego Fernando alongside him on the touchline - and he too took similar precautions against the deadly virus. Diego Maradona (centre) has hit out at those who mocked him for wearing a large visor He and his son Diego Fernando (right) both did so to protect themselves against Covid-19 Many on social media compared his visor to that of Toy Story character Buzz Lightyear ???????? ⚽️ returns with a pre season game between San Lorenzo and Diego Maradona’s Gimnasia.

    SANTA ROSA (KPIX) – Whether they were technically allowed to or not, this was the day many people returned home on the eastern edge of Santa Rosa. “Left the water running when we left on Sunday night, so if the fire was going to come down I thought it might stop it from coming in the house,” explained Pat Travis Wednesday. Finally back home, the first thing Travis did was shut down his emergency fire defense. “Yes, just want to turn off the water,” Travis said. “And get a couple things out of the freezer that will probably go in a couple of days.” The areas where homes were lost are still closed off to everyone but emergency workers. That has a lot of people circling their neighborhoods, waiting for roadblocks to come down. “We’re just grateful our home is still standing,” said Leslie Davis. “We’re kind of worried...
    Thursday, during an appearance on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) predicted a sweep for Democrats in November. According to the former Nevada lawmaker, Democrats will take the White House, the Senate and the House — that is, unless Trump “figures some way to cheat,” he said. “Donald Trump knows he is going to lose the election fairly,” Reid said. “He is behind in every poll. This could be a change election. He is going to lose big time. Biden is going to be elected. Pelosi is going to build upon her margin in the House. We’re going to take the Senate. So, he knows that. So he’s flailing. When in doubt, raise your arm — wave your arms, scream, and shout. That’s what he’s doing. He has no chance whatsoever to be president unless he figures some way to cheat.” Reid also responded to...
    (CNN)Some federal buildings in downtown Louisville, Kentucky will be closed this week in a move believed to coincide with an expected announcement by Attorney General Daniel Cameron and his office's investigation into the killing of Breonna Taylor.The Gene Snyder United States Courthouse will be closed to the public through Friday, September 25, according to an order by Greg Stivers, US District Court for the Western District of Kentucky. All scheduled in-court appearances will be continued or converted to videoconference proceedings at the discretion of the presiding judge, the order says. The US Citizenship and Immigration Services field office in Louisville will also be closed during that period "due to a court order." Neither facility provided additional details for the closures.The closures come as a grand jury has been empaneled in Louisville, and sources have told CNN that it will at some point take up Taylor's case.What does justice for Breonna...

    To say 2020 is a wild year is an understatement — aside from the obvious thing that’s defined 2020, in July, some people across the US received an unsolicited parcel from China containing seeds. Motherboard’s editor-in-chief went to great lengths to find out what people did with those seeds, and you should read his report. As you’d expect, the strange packages caught the USDA’s attention, urging people to mail the seeds to the agency or to their state’s plant regulator. Some people listened to the government and others, not so much. Here are some interesting details from Motherboard’s report on how overwhelmed agricultural authorities were and what likely happened to people who kept the seeds: A woman from New Mexico thought a seed company sent them to her, so she decided to plant the seeds and realized it was a bad idea because the seeds began to kill...
    CNN’s Jake Tapper pushed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on the Obama-Biden administration’s trade record and Trump’s renegotiation of NAFTA, pressing Biden into acknowledging that its replacement, USMCA, was an improvement. During a long, one-on-one interview on location in Michigan, the CNN host devoted a large chunk of an interview with Biden to challenge him on Trump’s 2016 appeal to working class voters and the loss of jobs from NAFTA that Biden supporters when it passes Congress. “Don’t you think that one of the reasons why President Trump has been able to appeal to the blue-collar workers that you talk about is because of his message on trade?” Tapper asked. “He pointed to NAFTA, which you supported. He pointed to Most Favored Nation status for China, which he supported. There are other factors, too, of course, automation. But the idea, the pitch that too many of these trade deals...
    MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace said President Donald Trump’s obsession with former President Barrack Obama is “some sick 50 shades of a racist pig stuff” on Tuesday’s broadcast of “Deadline: White House.” Wallace said, “Another bucket writing on which Cohen will be seen as credible because he was a participant was the racist attacks on President Obama.” Reading from a New York Times article on Michael Cohen’s book, Wallace said, “Trump was also obsessed with Mr. Obama. Cohen writes. The book describes Mr. Trump hiring a Faux-bama or fake Obama, were to record a video, Trump belittled the first black president and then fired him. A kind of fantasy fulfillment. It was hard to imagine any adult would spend serious money living out until he did the functional equivalent in the real world. The video Mr. Cohen describes appears to be a recording that was supposed to be shown the first night...
    NEW YORK (AP) — JPMorgan Chase said Tuesday that a number of its employees and customers may have abused the Paycheck Protection Program and other coronavirus stimulus programs. The New York-based bank said it is working with law enforcement in some cases, although in a memo sent to employees it did not state how many employees may have unethically misused the programs, or what exactly they did. The bank declined to comment beyond the memo. “Unfortunately, we’ve also seen conduct that does not live up to our business and ethical principles — and may even be illegal,” the memo said. JPMorgan, the nation’s largest bank by assets, was also the nation’s largest participant in the Paycheck Protection Program. The program, enacted in the first weeks of the pandemic, was designed to give small businesses forgivable loans that were to be used to cover payroll and other basic operating...
    Barry Trotz’s concern level for Mat Barzal’s availability for Thursday’s Game 6 of the Eastern Conference semifinals is “pretty moderate.” It sounds as if the Islanders’ first-line center already is improving after taking a stick to the face in the third period of Tuesday’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Flyers in Game 5. “I think everything is trending in the right area. Hopefully, by (Thursday) I can give you a more specific answer on that,” Trotz said Wednesday on a Zoom call. “But everything is trending in the right direction right now.” Barzal left the game with a bloodied towel over his face after being struck by Claude Giroux’s stick on a follow-through of a shot with a shade under five minutes remaining in regulation. Without their regular-season leading scorer, the Isles rallied from a 3-1 hole to tie the score on goals by Brock Nelson and Derick Brassard,...
    Bundesliga The Pole also thinks he should have won the Ballon d’Or In the changing room of Bayern Munich were convinced that they could defeat the Bara. In fact, the verb defeat falls short. What was cooking between the players was much more ambitious. Has revealed it Robert Lewandowski in an interview for the Polish media Onet: “Before the game, We knew we would win Bara. Some even said it would be 5-1, but 8-2 is a different result. “ Such was the trust within Bayern that through the heads of the players passed the thrashing to the Barcelona team. They did not doubt the victory, but the number of times he entered Ter Stegen in his goalkeeper to pick up the ball … “Before the game against Bara, Gnabry and Kimmich did not ask me if we won the match, but if we won...
    How did a rumor that Minneapolis police shot a homicide suspect — which police countered by releasing surveillance video showing he shot himself — lead to people breaking windows downtown and looting businesses? Minneapolis City Council Member Jeremiah Ellison said people’s assumption that officers killed the man, who was Black, “is rooted in a steep distrust.” Minneapolis City Council Member Jeremiah Ellison (Courtesy City of Minneapolis) “Seeing windows broken and items stolen can be beyond frustrating, especially when all that rage was sparked (this time) by misinformation,” he wrote late Wednesday on Twitter. “But so often our policing institutions have themselves been the source of misinformation. We forfeited our goodwill and this is the ugly cost.” The destruction Wednesday night and early Thursday came as Minneapolis and St. Paul businesses continue to try to recover from widespread looting, vandalism and arson that happened in the days after George Floyd died...

    Raptors team president Masai Ujiri said Thursday that video footage of him being treated “horribly” by a sheriff’s deputy in California at the end of last year’s NBA Finals reminded him that people feel they don’t have to treat him with respect because of his skin color. Ujiri added that despite his achievements in basketball, including building a championship team, “there are some people, including those who are supposed to protect us, who will always and only see me as something that is unworthy of respectful engagement. “And there’s only one indisputable reason why that is the case — because I am Black.” Ujiri made his statement through the Raptors the same week his legal team released bodycam footage showing the deputy, Alan Strickland, shoving Ujiri twice and not allowing him onto the court to join in the Raptors’ celebration after Toronto had defeated Golden State in Game 6 of The Finals.

    During an interview in early August, CBS correspondent Errol Barnett asked presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden if he had taken a cognitive test. The former vice president bristled at the question, and compared it to the journalist being asked if he had taken a drug test. BARNETT: Have you taken a cognitive test? BIDEN: No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man. That’s like saying, you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think, huh? Are you a junkie? In the days following the interview, Biden’s reply has served as a kind of political Rorschach test. On one end, many commentators simply ignored the segment, while on the other, several prominent political pundits, writers, and social media figures have claimed or implied that Biden’s comment was somehow...
    They called him "Mr B" - Billy Eckstine Everyone loves a love song, and there is a long musical history of “crooners” who caused hearts to beat a bit faster, leading to mass swooning at their performances. Where Black male artists were concerned, the long history of racial segregation in the U.S. had a significant impact. The fears of “race-mixing” engendered by antimiscegenationists to “protect the purity of white-womanhood” (while hypocritically and simultaneously having no problems with the rape and concubinage of Black women by white men), prevented many early Black male vocalists from achieving the level of stardom and fortune attained by white artists of equal or lesser talent.  In spite of those racial barriers, we still have a lengthy catalog of sexy Black singers of love songs, and ballads (along with the concomitant heartbreak) to explore and celebrate. My mom adored Billy Eckstine, thought I don’t think my dad did—even though they looked...
    This article is reprinted by permission from NextAvenue.org. Ever since I wrote the viral 2017 Next Avenue post, “Sorry, Nobody Wants Your Parents’ Stuff,” I’ve been a little obsessed with Americans’ love/hate relationship with their possessions and downsizing. So, I was fascinated to read University of Kansas sociology and gerontology professor David J. Ekerdt’s new book, “Downsizing: Confronting Our Possessions in Later Life,” and to have a chance to interview him about it. Ekerdt has actually conducted exhaustive interviews with Americans over 50 about their experiences shedding their stuff. In 2002-2003, he and his researchers spoke with 38 people age 60 and older who’d moved in the previous year within, or to, the region around Lawrence, Kansas, and Kansas City, Mo. They also interviewed 98 people 60+ in the area around Detroit and again in Kansas and Missouri between 2008 and 2013. And in 2010, they put questions about relocation and...
    President Donald Trump called Sen. Kamala Harris 'angry' and 'mad' from the White House podium Wednesday directly after she made her debut in Wilmington, Delaware as former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate.   'I didn't watch, I saw a moment of him speaking, a moment of her speaking and it was enough,' the president told reporters gathered in the briefing room.  Trump continued to push the narrative that he was surprised by Biden's pick because 'she said far worse [things] about Biden than I ever did.'  President Donald Trump ridiculed Joe Biden's pick for vice president, Sen. Kamala Harris. He made the comments in the hours following the Democratic ticket's first campaign event together  The president was referring to Harris' time on the 2020 campaign trail when she went after Biden over race.  Biden had talked about working with with southern Democrats who supported racial segregation in his early...

    There has been some confusion over whether or not some school districts in New York have or have not submitted their reopening plans to the Department of Health as they prepare to reopen for in-person learning. Before reopening, all 749 school districts in New York had to submit their reopening plan that includes guidance on how they plan to handle potential remote learning, testing, and contact tracing for teachers and students. During a conference call on Monday, Aug. 10, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said more than 100 school districts have yet to submit reopening plans, setting a deadline of Friday, Aug. 14 for districts to come into compliance. If districts don’t meet the deadline, Cuomo said they will not be permitted to reopen.

    Laura Marie went full bombshell as she sported a skimpy ensemble that showed off a ton of skin in her most recent Instagram snap on Sunday. In the caption of the post, she revealed that she was doing some heavy lifting. In the racy pic, Laura looked hotter than ever as she rocked a tiny bright orange string bikini. The tiny top fastened behind her back and around her neck as it flashed her muscled arms and shoulders. It also clung tightly to her ample bust and exposed a bit of underboob in the process. The matching thong bikini bottoms wrapped snugly around her tiny waist and rested high on her curvy hips as they showcased her round booty and long, lean legs. Her flat tummy was also spotlighted in the photo. She accessorized the style with a small pair of earrings and some clips in her hair. Laura posed...
    Children under the age of 17 were eligible to receive $ 500 on the first stimulus check The government began to deliver the missing money from today. Photo: ADEK BERRY / . / . Some people who qualified for stimulus checks encountered the bad news that they did not include the $ 500 payments that were due to them for their children under 17, according to CNBC. However, the government is going to take responsibility for this mistake, and as of today began to send this missing money. This applies to those individuals and couples who are not required to file a tax return and used the ‘IRS non-filer’ tool to provide information about the children they have. If you entered your information before May 17 and did not receive payment for your children, reyou will receive that money from this week, according to the IRS....
    (CNN)Vice President Mike Pence and members of his staff met Tuesday with some of the doctors who were featured in a video that was later removed from social media for misinformation, those doctors said on Wednesday.The video, which was shared by President Donald Trump before being removed, featured members of the group America's Frontline Doctors standing on the steps of the Supreme Court claiming that masks aren't necessary to prevent the spread of coronavirus and promoting hydroxychloroquine as a cure. Both claims are contradicted by scientific studies.The most prominent person featured in the video, Stella Immanuel -- who has said in the past that DNA from space aliens is being used in medicine -- did not meet with Pence.But several others who have actively promoted hydroxychloroquine and downplayed the virus did participate in the late afternoon meeting in the White House Roosevelt Room, as did the head of a conservative...
    As school officials try to figure out whether to open classrooms this fall, the science they need to make these tough choices is still evolving. A few things are clear: That most kids don’t become as seriously ill from Covid-19 as adults, and have much lower fatality rates. That’s according to data from the US and China published by the Centers for Disease Control. Everything You Need to Know About the CoronavirusHeres all the WIRED coverage in one place, from how to keep your children entertained to how this outbreak is affecting the economy. But the question of how likely children are to spread it to teachers, staff and other students still hasn’t been settled. One large new study from South Korea found children under the age of 10 appear to not transmit the virus very well. While it's not exactly clear why, the pediatric infectious disease experts contacted by WIRED...
    Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Sen. Ted Cruz squared off in an online dunking contest while feuding over the NBA’s relationship with China.

    COMO, Miss. (AP) — Authorities say a shooting killed two people and wounded others during a concert in a small northwest Mississippi town. Gunfire broke out about 2:30 a.m. Sunday during a rap concert at LP's Ball Park in the town of Como, District Attorney John Champion told WREG-TV. There are currently no suspects, he told WMCA-TV. Champion said several people were wounded but did not give a number, WREG-TV reported. Como is a town of about 1,200 located about 45 miles (72 kilometers) south of Memphis, Tennessee. Champion did not immediately respond to a phone message from The Associated Press about the shooting. He is prosecutor for the five counties in Mississippi's 17th Circuit Court District.

    John Bolton insisted Sunday that Donald Trump needs to learn about history so he can better conduct national security and foreign policy. The former national security adviser made the comments Sunday morning during an interview with CBS News' Face the Nation when defending his decision to follow the 'Libyan model' when dealing with North Korea. 'I don't think I could be clearer in talking about the Libya model of 2003-2004, we had a clear strategic decision for Muammar Qaddafi to give up Libya's nuclear weapons program, we have never had that from North Korea,' Bolton told host Margaret Brenner. 'One day the president will learn a little history and we'll be better for it,' he added. Trump and Bolton often clashed on how to deal with foreign leaders, especially North Korea's Kim Jong Un – with whom the president claims to have good rapport. Former National Security Advisor John...
    On the eve of this Fourth of July, there have been two cautionary tales playing out before our eyes. The first is the brutal crackdown by the Chinese Communist government on Hong Kong. The other has been the closing down of CHOP in Seattle. Visuals of the police in action imposing order in both cases might look similar. But in fact, they express two very different political traditions — and two radically different revolutions. JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: OUR DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE AND THE DECISION TO REVOLT AGAINST BRITAIN In Hong Kong police powers are being used to shut down freedom and to impose a totalitarian regime. It’s the ugly legacy of the French revolution in 1789, and its various communist offspring. In Seattle, the police had to act to protect freedom under the rule of law, and even preserve life itself. That’s the legacy of the American Revolution of 1776.More from Opinion Kay Coles James: Nation's values...
    In the four months America has been in the grip of an international pandemic, health care officials have encouraged people to wear face masks in order to reduce the disease’s spread. Masks, of course, prevent the spread of droplets carrying the virus from an infected person to others. The messaging on masks has not been entirely consistent, however, and President Donald Trump has refused to wear a mask in public. In the process, some people have started to look at mask-wearing as a kind of symbolic, political act. On Thursday, Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy expressed a certain level of curiosity for why that is. “For some reason, over the last couple of weeks, a month, masks have become political. But the science of masks is not,” Doocy said on the president’s favored morning show. Later in the show, co-host Brian Kilmeade laid the blame on those pushing...
    LOS ANGELES, California — Mayor Eric Garcetti told a press briefing on Wednesday afternoon that the recent Black Lives Matter protests in the Los Angeles area were, in fact, partly responsible for a recent spike in coronavirus cases. “Some of the spread did come from our protests,” Garcetti admitted, in response to a question from Breitbart News. Garcetti had enthusiastically supported the protests and participated in them at close quarters, even removing his mask at one point to address a crowd. However, he had also warned demonstrators about the risk of COVID-19 at the protests. Those warnings appear to have been correct, as cases have spiked within the Los Angeles area in recent days, prompting a return to closures for some businesses and for public beaches over the upcoming Fourth of July holiday weekend. Another journalist followed up to ask Garcetti if he knew precisely how may coronavirus cases...
    This weekend was "like a slurry" of all the worst aspects of Donald Trump: Treason, racism, incompetence, and a ban on his fanboys' one-time Reddit HQ.  Rick Wilson and Molly Jong-Fast have some thoughts on these matters in Episode 21 of The New Abnormal. “It's not just treason. It's historic treason,” Rick says about the revelation that the Russians offered bounties on U.S. soldiers—and Trump kissed up to the Kremlin anyway. “This is a guy who was already going down into the dustbin of history. And now there's going to be a line at his grave where they're going to have to throw cat litter down. Because people are gonna piss on it for all time,” he adds.  Plus! Democratic Rep. Connor Lamb talks up his favorite Republican and what it’s really like to be a “moderate” and a Marine in a grossly bipartisan Congress. Then, Minnesota Attorney General Keith...
    On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” Rep. Chris Stewart (R-UT), who was briefed on the intelligence about Russian bounties on U.S. soldiers, stated that the intelligence “isn’t something that just popped up in the last few weeks or the last few months. Some of this intel actually goes back for several years.” And that “Nancy Pelosi had this presented to her as well, in much the same format. So did Adam Schiff. All of us did.” Stewart said, “The truth is, is that we don’t know. Could Russia have done that? Absolutely. … Do we know they did that? We just don’t know yet. Which is why the president and other senior leadership haven’t acted or done anything on this yet. Because, once again, Chris, we just don’t know. We’re trying to find out for sure. But this is something that goes back a long time too. This isn’t something...
