    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow accused President Trump of making up and “just spitballing” that the massive explosion that rocked the Lebanese capital of Beirut earlier in the day was likely an attack caused by a bomb. “Here’s a thing that should never, ever, ever, ever, ever happen from the White House,” Maddow said. MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was particularly worked up on Tuesday night, accusing President Trump of “just spitballing” that the explosion that rocked the Lebanese capital of Beirut was likely an attack caused by a bomb. PHOTOS: HUGE EXPLOSIONS ROCK BEIRUT WITH WIDESPREAD DAMAGE, INJURIES “Not only should this never happen from the White House, it should never happen anywhere anyone is in any position of supposed authority,” she continued. “What happened today shouldn’t happen from a White House podium, but it also like shouldn’t happen from a teacher’s desk.

    Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson examined the phenomenon of left-of-center media urging presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to avoid a head-to-head debate with President Donald Trump. According to Carlson, Biden’s presidential chances rely on avoiding the public. Partial transcript as follows: Joe Biden’s handlers have claimed again and again that he will stick with the schedule set by the Commission on Presidential Debates and face off against the incumbent three times before the election, starting next month. They claimed that as recently as today, of course that promise is being taken as a threat by Democratic operatives around Biden. They know that their candidate’s poll numbers depend entirely on voters being unable to see or hear him speak. If Biden is allowed to talk in public, he will ruin everything. That’s why this summer, The New York Times ran a piece by Tom...
    David Salkever August 5, 2020 9:22AM (UTC) This article was originally published on The Conversation. Americans who lost their jobs because of the pandemic had been getting a US$600 bump on top of state benefits in their weekly unemployment checks since March. That ended on July 31, and lawmakers are debating whether to extend the program and if so by how much. Senate Republicans are arguing it's too generous to the 18 million who are unemployed and serves as a disincentive to returning to work. Their initial proposal in the ongoing negotiations would slash the benefit to $200 a week. : As an empirical economist, I wanted to see if their concerns about the disincentive were valid. So I analyzed data on earnings and unemployment benefits to estimate the share of benefit-eligible workers who could collect more on the dole than on the job. Replacement wages I started my...
    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow went after President Donald Trump in the opening monologue of her primetime show for “spitballing” about an explosion in Beirut Tuesday night that killed over 50 people. “Here’s a thing that should never, ever, ever, ever, ever happen from the White House,” Maddow said. “Not only should this never happen from the White House, it should never happen anywhere anyone is in any position of supposed authority. What happened today shouldn’t happen from a White House podium, but it also shouldn’t happen from a teacher’s desk. It shouldn’t happen from the voice of a cop giving you a parking ticket. It shouldn’t happen from a PA announcement at a supermarket about which car has its lights on in the parking lot.” The comments she’s referring to are from Trump’s news conference Tuesday night, where the president said the explosion in Lebanon was a “terrible attack.”  When...
    Donald Trump has relished making mail in voting a boogeyman during the coronavirus pandemic, denouncing the method routinely as part of his longstanding and evidence-free crusade over alleged voter fraud.  But that was before he realized how much Republican voters had started to listen to him. Now, with his re-election chances on line, the president is embracing the practice in the crucial swing state of Florida.  Within the senior ranks of Team Trump’s political and field operations, there have been significant concerns for weeks that the president and GOP’s crusade against voting-by-mail could actually backfire and result in a depression of absentee ballots cast for Trump come Election Day, according to three people familiar with the matter. However, all of these sources said that this growing concern has not convinced top advisers in the president’s vast reelection machine to actually stop this election’s legal, rhetorical, and advertising war—backed by tens...

    A Daily Wire host said conservatives should reject left-wing arguments that voting should be a permitted ability among those who "contribute nothing of substance" to society. During his Monday podcast, Matt Walsh, a Daily Wire conservative commentator with a significant online following and a public speaker with the Young America's Foundation, said voting should be reassessed as a privilege for those who have a stake in society and are reasonably aware of their political environment. "Voting ought to be a privilege reserved for informed, grown-up, contributing members of society. If you aren’t paying taxes, then you shouldn’t have any say in where tax money, other people’s money, goes. And if you are woefully ignorant of even the most basic facts of our system, then you shouldn’t be able to — by wandering into a voting booth, or worse, by mail from your home — muddy the waters by randomly...
    PEOPLE who have already had coronavirus shouldn't have to isolate even if they develop symptoms again, Sage scientists have said.

    ESPN radio host Dan Le Batard apologized after posting a poll that made fun of Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac shortly after he got injured. Le Batard, the host of The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz, expressed remorse on Monday for creating a social media poll to ask fans if Isaac's injury was "funny," given that he was one of a few players who remained standing during the national anthem amid the league's restart in Orlando, Florida. “Is it funny the guy who refused to kneel immediately blew out his knee?” Le Batard asked, before deleting shortly thereafter. Le Batard, also the host of Highly Questionable, a show on the network, later shared on social media, "We apologize for this poll question. I said on the front and back end of the on-air conversation that I didn’t think it was funny. Regardless of the context, we missed the mark....
    Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac made headlines last week when he was the first NBA player to stand during the national anthem, and he didn’t wear a Black Lives Matter shirt during the anthem as well. Now, he is getting exposure because of his decision Two days after the Magic’s game on Friday, Isaac’s jersey sales surged on the NBA’s store. As of Sunday, Isaac’s jersey is the second-best seller on the league’s website behind only Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.

    Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Odell Beckham Jr. doesn't think the NFL should go through with the 2020 season. The superstar wide receiver told the Wall Street Journal, "it doesn't make sense why we're trying to do this" and that the United States is "not ready for football season." Beckham also suggested that team owners are willing to forsake players' health for profits because "they don't see us as human." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. NFL players have already reported to training camp in the lead-up to the 2020 season, but one of the biggest names in the game is still skeptical that it's worth the risk.

    SAN ANTONIO – A coalition of teachers unions is demanding that campuses remain closed for at least the first nine weeks of the school year and that districts focus on virtual learning during that time. That includes teachers and staff carrying out instruction at home “as the COVID-19 pandemic rages across the country,” the San Antonio Alliance of Teachers and Support Personnel wrote in a letter on Monday, the same day the group planned three rallies across the city. The rallies, with teachers, students and parents were held at the San Antonio Alliance office and the central offices of the North East and Northside independent school districts. The letter states it is “unacceptable” to ask teachers and students to return to campus. They’re calling on school boards, superintendents and city leaders to “change course immediately.” Gov. Greg Abbott says school districts should decide when, how to reopen As allowed by...
    A former press secretary for Bill Clinton has a strategy for Joe Biden in the upcoming presidential debates: Just don’t show up. Joe Lockhart penned an op-ed piece for CNN in which he advises the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate to ignore the three debates, which begin Sept. 29. “Whatever you do, don’t debate Trump,” Lockhart wrote last week. “Trump has made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post. It’s a fool’s errand to enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth. Biden will undoubtedly take heat from Republicans and the media for skipping the debates. But it’s worth the risk as trying to debate someone incapable of telling the truth is an impossible contest to win.” And Lockhart on Sunday wrote on Twitter: “Debating @realDonaldTrump is like debating the last drunk in a bar at closing time. Anybody ever win...

    Bradley Cortright August 2, 2020 0 Comments As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has held few public events while hosting a lot of virtual events. However, as President Donald Trump has ramped up his attacks on Biden, he has suggested that the former vice president has not been doing many national TV interviews because he would not be able to handle it. On Sunday, CNN’s Brian Stelter pressed Biden campaign National Press Secretary T. J. Ducklo on the low number of interviews compared to Trump.  He noted that from June through July, Biden conducted 15 interviews while Trump sat for at least 30 interviews during that same time period.  He asked Ducklo, “Shouldn’t you be providing Biden to the press more often?”  “Well, we had a press conference this week,” Ducklo responded. “And since March 1st, Vice President has done nearly 100 interviews with every network including Fox...
    Fox News’ Howard Kurtz spoke Sunday with Hogan Gidley, Trump campaign national press secretary, and questioned him on the wisdom of some of President Donald Trump’s recent tweets. Kurtz first asked whether it was a “mistake” for the president of the United States to throw a tweet out there casually asking if the election should be delayed. “Absolutely not,” Gidley said, claiming Trump was just trying to call out the Democrats for “trying to absolutely and totally change the way we conduct elections in the country three months before election day.” He said there are plenty of issues with mail-in voting and the media just won’t cover it. Kurtz also brought up the president’s new push for hydroxychloroquine in the past week, retweeting video of one doctor who talked it up as a “cure.” Given subsequent reporting about Dr. Stella Immanuel (and the reason why everyone was talking about...
    As the National Basketball Association resumes its shortened season in Orlando, one player is pointing to his faith as the guiding principle in his refusal to follow the league-wide participation in kneeling during the national anthem. Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac, who chose to wear his Magic jersey instead of a Black Lives Matter tee sported by his teammates, said his belief in the Gospel of Jesus Christ outweighed participating in the display of unity. "For myself, my life has been supported through the Gospel," Isaac said on Friday. "Everyone is made in the image of God and that we all fall short of God's glory, and that each and every one of us each and every day do things that we shouldn't do, we say things we shouldn't say, we hate and dislike whatever we shouldn't hate and dislike and sometimes it gets to point where we point...

    Rapper and presidential candidate Kanye West called out abortion in the Black community and blasted his critics for getting so "concerned" about him crying over potentially aborting his first-born child. "I cried at the thought of aborting my first born and everyone was so concerned about me... I’m concerned for the world that feels you shouldn’t cry about this subject," he tweeted on Friday. His comments came after a viral campaign stop in which he cried while discussing how he and his wife apparently considered abortion.

    (CNN)I'm watching my third grader ride her bike out the living room window while I work. I'm equal parts enchanted by her imagination and saddened by it. It didn't used to be that way.

    Chances are you're storing some foods wrong. Chris Hondros/Getty There are certain storage techniques that can make everything from produce to bread last longer. Fruit shouldn't be washed before you store it in the fridge, and milk and eggs should never be kept in the refrigerator door. Highly gaseous produce items, like bananas, avocados, and apples, should be stored away from each other and other fruits and veggies.  Tomatoes, onions, and garlic shouldn't be stored in the fridge. The freezer is a great storage option for bread and uncooked meats.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Rummaging through your fridge to find that the "fresh" produce you bought earlier that week has gone bad can be disappointing. Luckily, there are ways to hack your way to fresher, longer-lasting groceries.  Here are some of the best ways to store your food for optimal freshness. 
    A Nevada sheriff walked back a letter in which he told a BLM-supporting library not to bother calling 911. EDUARDO MUNOZ ALVAREZ/AFP via Getty Images A Nevada sheriff responded to a local library considering support for Black Lives Matter by posting a critical open letter. In it, the sheriff said any support for the movement also supports violence and anti-police behavior. He also told the library that it shouldn't bother calling 911 and wished staff luck on dealing with disturbances on their own.

    YouTube host Austen Fletcher said on Wednesday that top Democrat Jerrold Nadler's comment that Antifa violence in Portland was a "myth" made him question the motives of the House Judiciary Committee chairman. “At the end of the day, political violence should be disavowed by both sides. This shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Fletcher told “Fox & Friends.” Nadler dismissed violence in Portland, Ore., in an impromptu interview when Fletcher randomly approached the congressmen on the street. “For the last 60-plus nights, we’ve seen the footage online, it is going viral. I think the echo chambers are the bigger problem here because the right is seeing the fires, the Molotov cocktails, the fireworks, the attacks on the police,” Fletcher said.

    When I first got with my now husband, I was so deliriously besotted with him and our sex life, I shared an extremely intimate video of us with a few of my closest friends. My friends are used to me being open about sex and asking them all sorts in the interest of research for my books, but this was one step too far in the completely wrong direction. It was way, way, WAY TMI. Why did I do it? Mostly because I was happy and excited about my new relationship and wanted to share this with my friends. Was I wrong to do it? Hell, yes! I still have no idea what I was thinking. (OK, I do. Lust and love send you barmy at the beginning.) My friends were amused and indulged me but they were also shocked to be shown something so personal. I feel hot with...
    Rinsing dishes before stacking them in the dishwasher is likely to leave them dirtier than loading them straight from the table, an Australian cleaning expert has claimed. Ashley Iredale, a consultant with consumer advocacy group CHOICE, told the ABC there is 'absolutely no need to pre-rinse' plates and encouraged people to skip the widely practiced step if they want to avoid deeply ingrained food stains. That's because most dishwashers have built-in sensors which detect how dirty items are so they can blast them with an appropriate strength of water and detergent. All you need to do is scrape solid food into the bin before stacking plates on the bottom shelf of the dishwasher, he said. Mr Iredale's claim is supported by cleaning experts from lifestyle website Bon Appetit, who called the concept of pre-rinsing an 'urban myth' earlier this month.  Scroll down for video Cleaning experts claim pre-rinsing dishes before...
    Virtually every poll showing presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden up over President Trump in a swing state brings a version of a familiar retort: "Remember Michael Dukakis." Biden, the two-term vice president and 36-year Delaware senator, is comfortably ahead of Trump in a slew of national and state-based polls less than 100 days before Election Day. Yet as Dukakis, the 1988 Democratic nominee and then-Massachusetts governor found out, such leads hardly guarantee a White House win. Dukakis is a natural comparison point with Biden, having held a double-digit advantage in national polling on the GOP nominee in waiting, Vice President George H.W. Bush, during the summer of the 1988 election. Democrats are pushing the antidote as a warning that their party shouldn't be complacent. Republicans are clutching onto it as a reminder that there's more than months left in the race. "32 years ago today: Dukakis 55 Bush 38,"...
    5 CORONAVIRUS has encouraged a disturbing new wave of cancellation and condemnation which is now being transferred to folk like me who have the "audacity" to take a holiday overseas.

    Less than 24 hours after the Wild touched down in Edmonton, the hub city for Western Conference games throughout the postseason, the NHL announced it has not received any positive tests for COVID-19 over the past week. It administered 4,256 tests to more than 800 players in that span. That’s obviously a great sign for the NHL as it prepares to return to play with exhibition games this week and actual games this weekend. It’s even more encouraging that the results take into account the time before teams arrived in their respective hub cities. That means players across the league have been following protocols while at home on their own. That obviously includes the Wild, who consistently wore masks around TRIA Rink in St. Paul over the past few weeks, and maintained social distancing as best as they could. Looking back on it now, coach Dean Evason wasn’t surprised about...

    Like many conservatives, Cotton is unhappy with the Times' project, which is an ongoing multimedia look at the role slavery has played in the history of what is now the United States. The project, conceived as a wide-ranging examination of the 400 years since the arrival of the first enslaved African people in Virginia, was created mostly by Black contributors. While some historians have disputed parts of the project, its creator, Nikole Hannah-Jones was awarded the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for commentary for the project. The board praised her "sweeping, provocative and personal essay for the ground-breaking 1619 Project, which seeks to place the enslavement of Africans at the center of America's story, prompting public conversation about the nation's founding and evolution."

    Coronavirus patients should not rely on negative test results for exiting quarantine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday, and instead should leave based on symptoms. “Studies have not found evidence that clinically recovered persons with persistence of viral RNA have transmitted [COVID-19] to others,” new CDC guidance said. “These findings strengthen the justification for relying on a symptom based, rather than test-based strategy for ending isolation of these patients.” People with mild or moderate symptoms of COVID-19 are infectious no longer than 10 days after showing symptoms of infection, according to the CDC. Patients who have stopped experiencing symptoms may still test positive for having the coronavirus genomes for up to three months after getting sick, but at such small concentrations that the patient is no longer infectious. The CDC suggests that instead of relying solely on diagnostic test results to determine if the...

    US Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams on Tuesday departed from President Donald Trump’s opinion about reopening schools, saying that the return to classrooms should wait until the country’s Covid-19 transmission rate drops. Adams shared his views on CBS This Morning, about 10 days after Trump threatened to withhold federal funding to schools if they don’t reopen in the fall. “What I want people to know is the biggest determinant of whether or not we can go back to school actually has little to nothing to do with the actual schools—it’s your background transmission rate," Adams said. Adams said that “folks need to wear face coverings, folks need to practice social distancing,” if they want to go back to school, places of worship and regular life in general. “Those public health measures are actually what's going to lower the transmission rate,” he said.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of President Donald Trumps coronavirus task force and the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is set to throw out the first pitch when Major League Baseball resumes this week. But Fauci just last month was warning that the National Football League, not to mention college football, might not need to play at all, unless players are kept in a "bubble" to keep them safer from coronavirus. "Unless players are essentially in a bubble — insulated from the community and they are tested nearly every day — it would be very hard to see how football is able to be played this fall. If there is a second wave, which is certainly a possibility and which would be complicated by the predictable flu season, football may not happen this year," Fauci told CNNs Dr. Sanjay Gupta in early June.

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said Sunday that wearing masks to help stop the spread of the coronavirus shouldn’t be about politics. When asked during an interview on ABC’s “This Week” about whether President Donald Trump was sending out mixed messages on wearing masks, Hutchinson said “that example needs to be set by our national leadership.” Trump didn’t wear a mask in public until a visit to a military hospital on July 11. “I’m a Republican governor. Democrat governors have all -- we’ve put in mask mandates based upon the circumstances of our state,” Hutchinson said. “It’s not popular. It’s not something we want to do. It’s not the first lever we pull. But it is one that, when the data says it’s necessary, we do it.” Hutchinson last week signed an order requiring masks in public when social distancing isn’t possible. The order takes effect...

    South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem told Fox News on Friday that states shouldn’t “lay down mandates” to protect against the spread of the coronavirus during the ongoing pandemic. "I think what we did here in South Dakota is really remarkable because we gave people their freedom," Noem told “Fox & Friends” in an interview.

The report also points out that this doesn’t mean that one alcoholic drink per day is recommended, just that it should be considered the limit.

    This article is reprinted by permission from NerdWallet. As colleges figure out how to structure classes this fall, many students are questioning whether to enroll at all. The idea of taking a gap year might sound enticing, but returning students should think twice. Many colleges have official gap year or deferred enrollment policies for incoming freshmen. But returning students who choose to take time off and re-enroll once the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic have passed aren’t “gappers.” They’re “stopouts,” and they face risks that don’t come with a traditional gap year. The president and founder of The Institute of Student Loan Advisors, Betsy Mayotte, explains that colleges have individual leave of absence and withdrawal policies for students who want to take time off. Students who don’t follow those rules might end up with unexpected debt and be blocked from accessing their academic transcripts. “I see a lot of students...

    Idris Elba has an idea for handling movies and TV shows with racist content. The actor recently spoke to the Radio Times magazine and said that instead of pulling racist content from streamers and on-demand services, they should instead come with a warning. “I’m very much a believer in freedom of speech.

    Malcolm X once observed: “I don’t even call it violence when it’s in self-defense; I call it intelligence.” A St. Louis couple — Mark and Patricia McCloskey — recently chose to arm themselves for self-defense after a mob entered their property and allegedly threatened their lives. They insist they were acting justifiably and … yes … intelligently.

    ROME—Just when Europeans were trading masks for bikinis, COVID-19 seems to be rearing its ugly head. In Spain, Germany and Italy, new hot spots of the virus are causing concern that the virus is on its way back. What makes the resurgence even worse is that Europe has been rightfully gloating about how well they have handled the pandemic so far. Strict lockdowns in hard-hit countries like Italy and Spain led to a flattened curve, albeit at an astronomical cost to the local economies. But for the most part, socially distanced Europeans who are now going back to work and kickstarting the economies, felt the sacrifice was mostly worth it as they look across the pond at the careless mask-free Americans at their bars, restaurants, and beaches as the contagion rate soars. Europe should have known better than to brag too soon. China gloated too when they were past the...

    Tashi-Delek/Getty Images New research suggests probiotics — food or supplements containing beneficial microbes — might help improve mental health, reducing depression and anxiety.  Previously, probiotics have been touted to boost everything from weight loss to athletic performance to general health, and companies often market products based on these claims.  Experts say that while there's promising research on the benefits of probiotics, these claims go far beyond what the evidence can prove yet.

    A falling-out between TikToks biggest stars led to a wave of creators unfollowing and subtweeting each other Walmart Surges Higher, Dow Slides New $89 Air Cooler Is Flying Off Shelves In The US Ad Microsoft Full screen 1/7 SLIDES © Getty Images Easy comparisons between Mahomes, Prescott Mahomes has been a better quarterback than Prescott, and he's already proven capable of leading his team to a championship. In many standard volume and rate statistics, Mahomes' numbers dwarf Prescott's, yet in other categories there are fair comparisons to be made. In general, Prescott has started twice as many games. Their interception totals (36 to 18) bear that out. Total touchdowns skews heavily to Mahomes' favor (118 for Prescott, 80 for Mahomes). Per-pass rate stats are ridiculously in Mahomes favor, with at least a...
    The CDC's guidance for schools is focused on ways to slow the spread of coronavirus, and notes that it is not meant to be used in place of local, state, or federal dictates. It states that "full sized, in-person classes" put students, teachers, and staff at the highest risk for spreading the virus. The lowest risk is for teachers and students to participate in virtual classes, the agency writes. In addition, the CDC guidance advises schools to consider closing for short or long durations in the event of outbreaks at the school or in the wider community. "You will likely dismiss students and most staff for 2-5 days," the CDC states about what to do if a student or staff member has a confirmed coronavirus case. In the event of widespread community transmission, the guidance states schools may need to consider dismissing school for two weeks or longer. The...

However, WHO officials warn that there's a lag between rising cases and rising deaths. It takes weeks after contracting the virus to fall seriously ill and potentially die from the coronavirus.  "Some of this may be lag, we may see deaths start to climb again because we've only...
    Dara Khosrowshahi, CEO of Uber, speaking at the 2019 DealBook Conference in New York on Nov. 6th, 2019.Photo: Mike Cohen Nothing Uber does in food delivery can conceal a critical quandary facing the company — Covid-19 is wreaking havoc on its core business. On Monday, Uber announced that it's buying Postmates for $2.65 billion, weeks after failing to acquire larger rival GrubHub, which opted to take a go with a bid from Europe's Just Eat Takeaway. Uber said the Postmates deal will bolster its Uber Eats delivery unit, bringing in key markets like Los Angeles, Phoenix and Las Vegas and 10 million active customers. With more consumers ordering food to their homes to avoid potential exposure to the coronavirus, Uber is tapping into a growing market where it already has a large presence. The problem for Uber is that those people are staying home, meaning they're not taking rides to restaurants, bars,...

    One of Disney Plus’ biggest attractions opened just in time for Independence Day. The streaming channel debuted the Tony Award winning production “Hamilton” on July 3. The hip-hop musical is hailed as a creative modern retelling of Alexander Hamilton’s journey to becoming a Founding Father of the U.S. Created by composer, playwright, performer, and producer Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton won 11 Tony awards in 2016 as well as the 2016 Pulitzer Prize in Drama. Viewers can’t even leverage a free Disney Plus trial to see it. It’s full price or bust. But wait… We’ve spent the last month seeing American statues spray-painted or toppled. Confederate symbols got thrown into the circular file along with the president who fought a Civil War to free American slaves. Even Mt. Rushmore is under attack, both by Native American activists and The New York Times. As the 1619 Project bravely taught us, America was built...
    SAN ANTONIO – In this instance, hand sanitizer is not the way to go. Safety officials are reminding people ahead of Fourth of July celebrations that hand sanitizer and fireworks are a dangerous mix. While hand sanitizer has become the go-to precaution amid the coronavirus pandemic, it contains alcohol, which is highly flammable. “Alcohol and fire do not mix,” National Safety Council spokeswoman Maureen Vogel told CNN. “You shouldn’t pair flammable items; it’s the proverbial recipe for disaster.” How San Antonio celebrates Fourth of July will impact COVID-19 wave, officials say Vogel recommends people wash their hands “the old fashioned way” with soap and water. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advises keeping a bucket of water or a water hose nearby in case of a mishap. The commission also says young children shouldn’t handle fireworks, including sparklers, as some sparklers are hot enough to burn certain metals. In 2019,...

    A citizens’ group devoted to battling racism in Fairfax County, Virgina, held a discussion about redirecting police funds to other agencies during an online forum Wednesday. As racial justice protests have erupted following the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis and sparked growing calls to “defund the police,” the Fairfax Communities of Trust Committee sponsored an online which, among other topics, featured a discussion about the idea of redirecting funds away from police agencies and toward other government programs. “We have to rethink what we call a crime and we have to re-imagine how we respond to the community on public health issues,” said Claire Castanaga, executive director of ACLU in Virginia. “We can’t be sending the police when somebody has a mental health crisis … We shouldn’t be asking the police to address homelessness by arresting people for vagrancy and trespass. We shouldn’t be addressing substance abuse disorders by criminalizing...

    Coronavirus antibody tests that can be done at home would get the results wrong a third of the time, a damning study has found. A review of research found that rapid 'have you had it' coronavirus kits, which screen the blood to look for signs of past infection, have major flaws.  They correctly identify someone who has had the disease only 66 per cent of the time, on average - and this could drop as low as 49 per cent in some cases. Officials in the UK have refused to offer antibody tests to the public because they fear people will stop following social distancing rules if they think they're immune to Covid-19. In reality, there is no proof that people cannot get the illness twice. The study in the British Medical Journal found that lab-based tests were more accurate but still not perfect, correctly identifying positive results between 84...
    A city supervisor in San Francisco is calling for Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's name to be removed from a public hospital, citing his refusal to place restrictions on President Trump's posts. "Massive advertising boycott of Facebook for failing to regulate hate speech & disinformation," a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, Matt Haney, said in a string of tweets on Sunday. "Huge staff walk outs & protests. Cozy relationship w Trump, $ to Republicans. Much of it seems directly tied to Mark Zuckerberg Why is his name still on our SF public general hospital?" Zuckerberg, one of the country's richest businessmen, donated $75 million to the hospital in 2015. The facility is known as the Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center. Critics, including some Facebook employees, have expressed outrage that Zuckerberg has not taken more steps to curb statements...
    The European Commission on Tuesday released its much-anticipated list of countries whose residents will be permitted to travel into the EU starting tomorrow. Who's in? Residents of Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Montenegro, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, Serbia, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay. If China reopens its borders to EU residents, it will also be included. Who's out? Everyone else, including the United States. The announcement was a heavy blow for Americans — and not just those with summer travel plans to Europe. What happened?When EU draft lists failed to include the U.S. among countries likely to be welcomed next month, media reaction was swift. It was "embarrassing," a "blow to U.S. prestige," and a "stinging rebuke to the Trump administration's management of the coronavirus scourge." It was also entirely expected. On June 11, the European Commission published a four-part checklist that set forth "objective criteria" to create a "common list"...
    Actor Terry Crews has said the Black Lives Matter movement shouldn't turn into Black Lives Better as anti-racism protests continue to be held across the United States.   The America's Got Talent host made reference to the BLM movement in a tweet on Tuesday when he said that anyone who was a child of God was his brother and sister.  'If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn't enthused at the idea of taking down statues of Christopher Columbus, saying the fight over historical monuments is better fought by erecting new ones. It's important to ask, "'Why is there a statue of Christopher Columbus, but not what one? Or, why don't we honor the Lenape people of whom New York City originally belonged in the same or even similar proportion?” the first-term New York Democrat told the Washington Examiner on Monday. A statue of Christopher Columbus stands in New York City’s midtown Columbus Circle. It is currently under review on whether it will be removed following a decision by a commission headed up by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife, Chirlane McCray. “For me, it's less a question of statue up statue down. It's more a question of white supremacy is when we only acknowledge when we only have...
