    First, they must make sure that the eggs survive the journey. The astronauts return to the Moon. This is a reality that has been known for some time and there are space agencies, such as the POT, which has already selected its chosen ones. But since the mission is not a touch & go, the issue of food must be solved. Therefore, there is an idea that proposes that eggs are raised on Earth’s natural satellite. For now the project is seen with good eyes and has the green light by scientists. The idea is that the first trips go with Sea Bass eggs and that these are raised with water from the Moon. Although they must first make sure that the embryos survive the trip into space. Daily Mail review that the project is called Lunar Hatch and for now they are in the first phase. This consists...
    Protesters attend a rally held by fast food workers and supporters to celebrate the California Labor Commissioner’s order for the company to rehire and compensate workers who went on strike for coronavirus disease (COVID-19) protections, in Los Angeles, California, February 18, 2021.Lucy Nicholson | Reuters It looks like the federal minimum wage won't be increased anytime soon — news that will hit women harder than men. Senate Democrats are dropping the $15 minimum wage provision from the latest $1.9 trillion stimulus package after the Senate parliamentarian last week decided that the policy couldn't be passed through a sped-up process called budget reconciliation. Some Democrats — including Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent — had proposed penalizing corporations that didn't pay their employees at least $15  per hour. Others voiced their support for Vice President Kamala Harris to overrule the parliamentarian and attempt to pass the bill through budget reconciliation —...
            by J.D. Davidson  While President Joe Biden’s administration continues a push to increase the national minimum wage and an Ohio proposal does the same, a statewide business group says an increase would mean higher prices, reduced hours and job cuts. Biden’s plan for a $15 national minimum wage continues to be one of the sticking points in negotiations over another COVID-19 relief package. In Ohio, House Bill 69 would increase the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2027. Ohio’s minimum wage stands at $8.80 an hour for nontipped employees and $4.35 an hour for tipped employees. “We can’t afford to stay stuck in the past with poverty-wage jobs that don’t let Ohioans live up to their full potential,” said Rep. Brigid Kelly, D-Cincinnati. “Ohio’s minimum wage needs an overhaul to meet demands of today’s new economy.” HB 69 bill, sponsored by Kelly and Sens. Cecil...
    An increase of the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour would result in the loss of 1.4 million jobs, according to a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) average estimate detailed in a report released Monday. The Raise the Wage Act would also raise the budget deficit $58 billion, according to the CBO analysis. That would potentially jeopardize the ability of Democrats to pass the bill through budget reconciliation, which is how Independent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders suggested he would try to turn it into law. CBO just released its new $15 min wage analysis—adds $58B to the deficit, kills 1.4M jobs. Have to look at how they reach these numbers, but it’s a bad blow for the Raise the Wage Act.

    Lawyer Alan Dershowitz said convicting former President Donald Trump on an impeachment charge would "raise questions" from the public about the legitimacy of the 2024 presidential election. The professor emeritus at Harvard Law School who was part of Trump's legal team the first time he got impeached argued that a Senate impeachment trial of a former president is unconstitutional and destructive to the democratic process. "In the event former President Trump is convicted and is disqualified, this will raise questions about the legitimacy of the 2024 election," Dershowitz told Newsmax on Monday. Dershowitz, who is not representing Trump this time, argued that the public would not support the next presidential election when "a group of Democratic senators with a few Republicans have denied the American public the right to vote for a candidate who they might want to see as president of the United States." Trump became the first president...
    Lev Radin/Pacific Press/LightRocket via Getty Images New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed raising taxes on the wealthy to a combined level of 14.7%, which would be the highest state-and-local tax rate in the nation. The tax increase would raise $1.5 billion for the state, Cuomo said Tuesday in an address unveiling his 2022 budget proposal.

    Veteran Republican Karl Rove warned that if President Trump chooses his personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, to defend him in the Senate impeachment trial, it would backfire on him. Rove, who served as deputy chief of staff under President George W. Bush, said he believes Giuliani's claims on voter fraud in the aftermath of the 2020 election hurt his credibility, and his role in an impeachment defense would drive more GOP senators to convict Trump. "With the Rudy Giuliani defense, there is a strong likelihood that more than 17 Republicans will because essentially that argument is, this was justified," Rove said on Fox News Sunday. "The attack on the Capitol and the attempt to end the congressional hearing on certifying the election was justified because all these charges are true. Frankly, they are not." The House impeached Trump last week on a charge of "incitement of insurrection" regarding the riot...
    SAN FRANCISCO -- A California coalition is proposing legislation to boost taxes on wealthy multinational corporations to raise more than $2 billion a year to house tens of thousands of homeless people, addressing what has become a worsening problem in the country's most populous state.Supporters say Assembly Bill 71 would reinvent California's approach to solving homelessness - providing for the first time an ongoing, sufficient state funding source to get people off the streets. Opponents say it would contribute to the perception that California is hostile to business."Our state is facing an unprecedented homelessness crisis that's on the verge of becoming a full-blown catastrophe due to the economic impacts of COVID-19," Democratic Assemblywoman Luz Rivas of Los Angeles said Wednesday, noting that one in four Americans experiencing homelessness lives in California.The state suffers from prohibitively high housing costs and wages that can't keep up, resulting in an ever-widening gap between...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said free college for all would cost $150 billion. His campaign later clarified that the former Vice President misspoke, noting free college for all would cost nearly double that amount. During a CBS “60 Minutes” interview, Biden claimed that he can raise $400 billion by ensuring every corporation pays a minimum tax of 15%, which could help provide free college for all. “I can send every single qualified person to a four-year college in their state for $150 billion. I can make sure every single person who qualifies for community college can go and we still have a lotta money left over,” he said. (RELATED: Biden Rivals Trump With Tax Proposal To Encourage Domestic Investment) However, CBS notes that after the interview “Mr. Biden’s staff told us he misspoke and that the cost of free public college could be twice as much as he...

            by Bethany Blankley  Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s proposed tax increases of nearly $4 trillion over the next 10 years, if passed, “would be the highest in American history – indeed, in world history,” an analysis of his plan determined. Lew Uhler, founder and chairman of the National Tax Limitation Committee and National Tax Limitation Foundation (NTLF), and Peter Ferrara a senior policy adviser to NTLF, made that conclusion in a new report published by The Hill. A separate analysis by the nonprofit, nonpartisan, Washington, D.C.-based Tax Foundation found that Biden’s tax plan would reduce the economy’s size by 1.47 percent in the long run. It would also shrink capital stock by just over 2.5 percent and reduce the overall wage rate by a little over 1 percent, resulting in a loss of 518,000 full-time jobs. Biden’s tax plan would raise roughly $3.05 trillion over the next...
    New marijuana business licenses for would-be entrepreneurs who lack funds but come with other credentials are closer to reality in Colorado. These micro-licenses are intended to raise social equity within commercial pot by making business permits more accessible to those harmed by the War on Drugs. While applications could become available in early 2021, a year after the law took effect, the state Marijuana Enforcement Division continues to hold rulemaking hearings. The new licenses will be connected to and housed within the facilities of established cannabis companies that agree to play host, and would come with discounted licensing fees. In general, stakeholders applaud the new opportunities. But some worry that they come with other expenses.

    Getty Former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. The tax plan from 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden has been attacked at both the first presidential debate and the vice-presidential debates, during political advertisements and by surrogates from Biden’s opponent, President Trump. During the first presidential debate, Trump said that Biden’s plan would hurt business growth and has continued to say Biden will raise everyone’s taxes.

    A new study finds that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s platform would raise taxes by $3.4 trillion on Americans and corporations over the next decade. The Penn Wharton Budget Model, a nonpartisan group at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, released the study on Monday. In addition to trillions more in taxes,  Biden’s platform would raise federal spending by about $5.4 trillion — or roughly 24% of gross domestic product by 2030, Fox Business reported. “The spending plan, which is more than double what Hillary Clinton proposed during the 2016 campaign, would be funded by a slew of new taxes, including a corporate tax hike. Biden’s trillion-dollar proposals signal that he’ll continue the unprecedented level of government spending that began in mid-March as American life came to a grinding halt because of the COVID-19 crisis,” Fox wrote. Biden has made no secret about hiking taxes, pledging to do so on...

    America's current outlook for an economic recovery following the coronavirus pandemic is positive, but that could change if former Vice President Joe Biden wins in November, White House adviser Larry Kudlow told "Your World" Thursday. Kudlow argued that Trump's agenda of deregulation and tax cuts boosted the American economy before the COVID-19 pandemic and added that the country was seeing a "V-shaped recovery." BIDEN WILL RAISE TAXES, 'CRATER' STOCK MARKET AND ECONOMY: KUDLOW "This will be a self-sustaining economic recovery with very big numbers in Q3 and Q4," he said. Kudlow added that by imposing higher taxes, Biden and running mate Kamala Harris may end up hurting America's ability to recover from the economic impact of the coronavirus. At one point, host Neil Cavuto had asked Kudlow about Biden's pledge to make the economy more fair as president. "What I make of that is higher taxes," Kudlow answered. "It's very clear the other team is going to raise taxes. It's in their...
    President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign on Monday released two new ads focusing on former Vice President Joe Biden’s radical plans for the country. The ads focus on Biden’s proposed trillions of dollars in new taxes and amnesty for 11 million illegal immigrants as well as his plan to reduce funding for the police “The radical left has taken over Joe Biden and the Democrat party, don’t let them take over America,” the narrator warns. Another ad features a woman displaying large cards of information about Biden’s radical proposals for the country, saying that as a mother of four, she’s concerned about his America. She also warns Biden’s trade policies have hollowed out American cities. She does not speak but the cards read that Biden is “weak” and he embraced the policies of the far left. “I’m afraid to say this out loud, I won’t risk my children’s future with...
    One of President Trump’s most important accomplishments in office has been the energy revolution that has led to sharply increased oil and natural gas production and job creation in the U.S. But our days of energy insecurity and dependence on other nations in unstable areas of the world to meet our energy needs will return if former Vice President Joe Biden wins the November election.   The Trump administration’s deregulatory policies, combined with a rapidly innovating domestic energy industry, led to the U.S. becoming a net exporter of petroleum products in 2019 — including gasoline, diesel fuel and crude oil — for the first time since 1949. Overall U.S. exports of all forms of energy exceeded energy imports last year for the first time since 1952. And in 2017, America exported more natural gas than it imported — for the first time in 60 years. TRUMP TOUTS AMERICA'S ENERGY INDEPENDENCE...

    Grocery conglomerate Albertsons expects to raise up to $1.3 billion when it goes public amid a coronavirus-related sales boom. Some of the Idaho-based company’s stockholders will sell 65.8 million shares at $18 to $20 apiece in the upcoming initial public offering, Albertsons said Thursday.
