    Although many venues have been shuttered for the past six months over COVID-19, B-Side Live is opening this Friday, October 9, in the former Black Buzzard space in the basement of Oskar Blues at 1624 Market Street. Hayley Steiner, who paired bands with visual artists as founder of the RiNo Showcase, will act as the venue's operator and booking manager. She says her vision for the spot is simple: "Human beings need live music, and even in a time like this, there has to be a safe place for it." In keeping with Colorado state guidelines and local public-health orders, capacity will be limited to fifty people inside the venue at a time. The concerts will be socially distanced, and guests will be required to sit.

    Netflix has just officially launched the New & Popular tab for TVs, which it’s been testing for quite a while now, and it comes with a new section meant to keep users looking forward to upcoming shows and movies. The new row marked “Worth the Wait” will show members what’s coming to the streaming service in the next 15 to 365 days. It also gives them a way to set a reminder for any show or movie that catches their eye way ahead of their release. Netflix already has a Coming Soon section within New & Popular and as its own tab on mobile, but it only shows titles arriving on the platform within the next week or two. As Variety notes, the new feature was most likely designed to convince subscribers to keep paying for a membership even if they don’t watch as much anymore or even if nothing...
    Colorado State University-Pueblo will offer a new hemp agriculture degree program next fall, funded in part by the United States Department of Agriculture. CSU-Pueblo already offers other cannabis degree programs and has been home to the Institute of Cannabis Research since 2016; current undergraduates can pursue a bachelor's degree in cannabis biology and chemistry or a minor in cannabis studies. Starting next year, however, students can narrow their studies to focus on industrial hemp, thanks to a new research program starting up at several colleges around the country. CSU-Pueblo's Industrial Hemp Education, Agriculture and Research (InHEAR) program will require students to take courses specifically tailored toward agricultural hemp research and either do an internship with one of CSU-Pueblo’s hemp industry partners or conduct research at the Institute of Cannabis Research. Development of the new curriculum is funded by a $275,000 grant from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture; similar degrees are...

    Getty House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote a letter to her Democratic colleagues Friday, October 2, outlining five different priorities that she said were “needed to crush the coronavirus and protect lives, livelihoods and the life of our democracy” in a coronavirus relief bill. Pelosi and the Democrats recently passed an updated $2.2 trillion version of the HEROES Act. The bill was significantly lower than the $3.4 trillion HEROES Act Democrats passed in May and still more than the $1.3 trillion HEALS Act Republicans passed in May. Republicans most recently moved their estimate up by $600 billion in a new $1.6 trillion offer proposed by Republicans. The five items deemed priorities were described as points of disagreement between Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin the principal negotiators on a new pandemic relief bill. However, Pelosi and Republican leaders have expressed optimism that a deal could get...
    Cineworld, owner of the largest chain of theaters in the UK and Ireland and the second-largest in the United States — Regal Cinemas — will reportedly close all its theaters next week, according to Variety, The Sunday Times, and others. Variety reports that all 543 theaters in the US will be closed, which account for the chain’s 7,000+ screens in the region. The Sunday Times reports that it will close all 128 theaters in the UK and Ireland, too. Both say James Bond is the reason. Yesterday, the 25th James Bond film — No Time to Die — was pushed back to April 2021 due to the ongoing pandemic, denying theaters one of the last major tentpole releases due out this year. Apparently, theaters were counting on Bond, specifically, to arrive on time and help bail them out of poor ticket sales. The news is coming...

    During an appearance on MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show Friday evening, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel warned that President Donald Trump has a “substantial risk of dying” of coronavirus, Raw Story reported. Host Rachel Maddow dedicated the first 18 minutes of her show to Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis. The commander-in-chief and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for the dangerous virus on Thursday. Since then, his condition has gradually gotten worse, it seems. Per The New York Times, early on, the White House downplayed concerns about Trump’s health, saying that he is experiencing only “mild” symptoms. Then, Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean P. Conley, revealed that he is taking an experimental antibody cocktail. Shortly after that, news broke that the commander-in-chief is being transported to the Walter Reed Medical Center. He is expected to stay at the hospital, where he will reportedly undergo tests, for at least several days. As Raw Story noted, Maddow...
    President Donald Trump and first lady Melania have tested positive for the coronavirus early Friday morning after exposure to senior counselor Hope Hicks. Former White House physician Dr. Ronny Jackson told The Kyle Olson Show that both Trumps were asymptomatic. Breitbart News has since reported Trump is showing “mild” symptoms. Jackson said Trump does not have heart disease, lung disease, or any other condition “that would put him at risk.” He said 99.5 percent of everyone in that age category “will recover from this spontaneously,” adding that most people will not get any symptoms. “I fully expect … this to resolve itself in the next 7 to 10 days,” Jackson said. Jackson said he does not expect Trump to remain in quarantine for ten days because “quarantine is for people who have been exposed and tested negative,” and Trump is a confirmed case. He said the White House has an...
    (CNN)Two of the largest fires in California's history are now fully contained, but firefighters are still battling two other blazes that have scorched more than 100,000 acres. The SCU and LNU lightning Complex Fires were the third and fourth largest wildfires in California's history, charring an area close to the size of Rhode Island.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The nationwide discussion over racial inequality has people talking about another important issue in America: a lack of diversity in the workplace. Are companies doing enough to make sure the work atmosphere is inclusive? Some corporate leaders have blamed a lack of diversity on a limited talent pool. But local advocates and business executives say the workforce is full of qualified candidates who are simply being overlooked. “The Black talent pool is facing the economic crisis of today, on top of not having the opportunity to accelerate and be advanced in their organization,” said Jessica Brooks, co-founder of the Executive Action Response Network/CEO of Pittsburgh Business Group on Health. Brook has made it her mission to help people of color advance their careers and break the glass ceiling. “We have three percent or less of African Americans occupying C-level and senior-level roles...

    Vice President Mike Pence takes center stage next week when he debates Senator Kamala Harris for the only time in the campaign. While the debate is less than a week away, Pence stopped by Iowa on Thursday, a potential battleground state in this year's election but also the state that hosts the first presidential election contest —  of 2024.

    Hundreds of small earthquakes continue to rattle southern California, sending light shaking into San Diego County, as experts raise the odds that a much larger tremor could strike in the coming days.  The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported that hundreds of earthquakes had been reported by Wednesday night in the Salton Trough near Westmorland and more than a dozen more sizeable earthquakes on Thursday.   The swarm has registered only a few 4.5 magnitude earthquakes with many of the tremors falling below 3.0 magnitude. The largest so far was a magnitude 4.9.  The USGS has now listed the possibly of a magnitude 7 or higher earthquake hitting in the next few days as one in 300 as a result of the recent activity.  Hundreds of earthquakes swarm southern California raising fears that a larger one is coming.

    (CNN)The Atlantic hurricane season has exhausted the English alphabet and now is working on the Greek alphabet.A system moving north toward the Yucatán Peninsula and west of Cuba is likely to become the 24th named storm of the season. The system is not very strong now, but the National Hurricane Center (NHC) has given it a 70% chance of developing into a named storm in the next five days. If the system does get named it will become Tropical Storm Gamma, the third letter in the Greek alphabet. The NHC has resorted to using the Greek alphabet for only the second time in recorded history because the original list of 21 names has been used this season. Atlantic hurricane season has already been very active, but it's not over yet. Technically the season does not end until November 30, but some years storms have continued well after that.

    A saddening new state report is predicting that nearly half of New York City's 24,000 bars and restaurants could shut permanently in the next six months as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and slow response from the city to reopen.  State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli released the audit on Thursday. While there is no official tally for how many have closed permanently already, the report predicts between a third and half will shutter in the next six months which will cost 150,000 people their jobs.   Restaurants in New York City are currently limited to only allowing 25 percent of their normal capacity which makes it impossible for them to turn a profit. Bars, meanwhile, are still forbidden from opening.  The industry is up in arms about the rules, which are harsher than anywhere else in the state despite the fact that New York City commercial rent is the highest in the state. ...
    Who will be the next king of hockey in New York? By: Rob Taub ShareTweetFlipRedditYesterday marked the end of an era. Henrik Lundqvist, the goalie for the New York Rangers for the last 15 years and a surefire Hall of Famer, was bought out by the organization with one year left on his seven-year, $59-million contract he signed in 2014. The decision to buyout the 38-year-old was almost written on the wall ever since the arrival of Ilya Shesterkin — the organization’s highly-touted Russian goalie — towards the middle of the season, and the rise of 24-year-old Alexander Georgiev the past two seasons. Still, it was a painful day not just for Rangers fans, but for all hockey fans in the metropolitan area who watched his reign to becoming one of the greatest goalies ever. Lundqvist truly was a King. And New York...
    Barbara Jo Kammer finds therapy in music, and in better times, she and her band, The Hippie Buckaroos, can often be found playing to the residents of senior homes in and around Boulder County. Of course, COVID-19 has made that next to impossible. The Lafayette resident didn't want to let a global pandemic stop her from helping others. She's taken her act solo and plays just outside the window for elders, many of whom are stuck inside and in need of a distraction. "I've been working with elders as a music therapist since I graduated from Naropa in 2000," Kammer says. "It's been a wonderful experience for the elders, for the staff and for us especially." The past few weeks have even made playing outside a bit of a challenge because the smoke from nearby fires and those in California have forced many senior homes to close their windows....
    The home in Frederick where Chris Watts killed his pregnant wife, Shanann, in August 2018 before taking the lives of Celeste and Bella, their two young daughters, is currently being viewed by more people than ever before. But although the property, located at 2825 Saratoga Trail, spent well over a year for sale, it's now been taken off the market — and that's just as well, since a disturbing new movie about the tragedy creates even more doubts that anyone would ever want to live within its walls again. On September 30, Netflix launched American Murder: The Family Next Door, a documentary about the slayings that's assembled almost entirely of video or images shared online by Shanann or footage from the investigation into her disappearance, including body-camera clips that seem to capture every inch of the living space. The house is practically another character in a film that chillingly transforms...

    In the wake of a New York Times report claiming President Donald Trump’s tax returns show “chronic losses and years of tax avoidance,” former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen suggested on Tuesday that the president could spend “the next century” in prison. CNN “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota asked, “What did he say to you about his low tax burden, the fact that the only paid $750 the first two years he was in office, the fact that many years he paid zero, and the fact that he got a refund from the IRS? I mean, you had conversations with him about this.” Cohen detailed how Trump before being in office “flicked” a $10 million refund check to him and then recalled, “I said, ‘Wow.’ He goes, ‘Yeah, would you believe how f-ing stupid the IRS, this government is in order to give somebody like me a refund?” I said, ‘Well,...

    Former Trump fixer and personal attorney Michael Cohen said that President Donald Trump could end up spending “the next century” in prison over the tax issues revealed in the recent bombshell New York Times report. On Tuesday morning’s edition of CNN’s New Day, co-anchor Alisyn Camerota interviewed Cohen about the conflagration surrounding that NYT report, which revealed Trump paid just $750 in income taxes the year he was elected, as well as during his first year in office — and paid zero for 10 of the 15 preceding years. “What did he say to you about his low tax burden, the fact that the only paid $750 the first two years he was in office, the fact that many years he paid zero, and the fact that he got a refund from the IRS?” Camerota asked Cohen.

    The Louisville police officer who obtained the 'no-knock' search warrant that led cops to Breonna Taylor's home could be the next to potentially face charges as the police department and FBI launches an investigation into the case.   LMPD Detective Joshua Jaynes was identified as the officer who had requested a search warrant to Taylor's apartment hours before her death on March 12, in pursuit of her ex-boyfriend and drug suspect Jamarcus Glover.  Cops later carried out the raid in the early hours of March 13, bursting through the door and killing the 26-year-old EMT in a hail of bullets as she stood alongside her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker.  Meanwhile Glover, who was the intended target of the warrant, had already been taken into custody around the same time of the operation, ten miles away.  LMPD Detective Joshua Jaynes (left) requested a search warrant to Taylor's apartment hours before her death on...
    It's been a long time coming, but exit numbers on Massachusetts' highways are set to change in October. Announced a year ago, the plan to get Massachusetts’ highways in-line with the federal exit numbering strategy - a “milepost-based system” - will soon be visible to motorists, WCVB reports. Massachusetts Department of Transportation has created an interactive map - newmassexits.com - showing the new highway exit numbers.

    Tesla announced that it will dramatically reduce the cost of its battery cells and packs — which means the company’s new goal is a $25,000 electric car. The company’s CEO Elon Musk said its new “tabless” battery cells, as well as by changing the materials inside the cell, will allow Tesla to “halve” the price per kilowatt-hour, which will make electric cars roughly the same price as combustion engine ones. The price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) is the unit of energy most commonly used to measure the capacity of the battery packs in modern electric vehicles. Those prices have been falling dramatically over the last decade, from $1,100/kWh in 2010 to $156/kWh in 2019, a drop of 87 percent. Tesla will “halve” the price per kilowatt-hour, Musk said Experts predict that the price will hit $100/kWh by 2023, but Musk said Tesla will kick off a three-year process to...

    The Islanders’ goaltending situation is the best it has been in a long time By: Rob Taub ShareTweetFlipRedditIt’s been a few days now since the New York Islanders’ fantastic playoff run came to an end. That time has allowed for a lot of reflection on how they got as far as they did and what the future may hold heading into next season, whenever that begins. One of the keys to the future — and hopefully more success for the organization — is their goaltending situation. Even with the news this morning that Thomas Greiss — whose been a soldier for the team the last five years and is an unrestricted free agent going into next month — will most likely test the market, the Isles’ situation in goal is as good as it’s been in a long time.

A new Politico-Morning Consult poll taken immediately following Ginsburg’s death last week shows 50 per cent of voters want to hold off on replacing the late justice, while 37 per cent say Trump should move forward with filling the seat before Election Day. Twelve per cent of voters say they have no opinion on the matter. Those who want to hold off on the nomination, according to Politico, reason it’s too close to Election Day, lamenting the “election is fewer than 50 days away.” But the other voting bloc say Trump should pick the next justice “since he is the current president.” Predictably, the two parties...

    The US Congress has waded into the ongoing row over the Elgin Marbles and called for their return to Greece. In a letter to the Prime Minister, eighteen members of the House of Representatives urged Britain to open talks 'in earnest' over the sculptures in the British Museum. They said said: 'The Marbles have been the source of controversy among western allies for many decades. Greece has long wanted these Parthenon Marbles back. 'Today we write to you as members of the congressional caucus on Hellenic Issues to urge your government to negotiate with the Greek government in earnest on the return of the Parthenon Marbles to Greece.' The 7th Earl of Elgin, Thomas Bruce, removed the Parthenon Marble pieces from the Acropolis in Athens while serving as the British ambassador to the Ottoman Empire from 1799 to 1803 The group of congressmen contained both Republicans and Democrats and...
    Gardner faces stiff re-election against Democrat John Hickenlooper. Former Governor Tweet Friday Gardner was urged to “maintain the commitment he had four years earlier and allow the president-elect to make this decision in November.” Michael Colerado, another Colorado senator and Democrat, has changed his position as Gardner faces pressure to retain his previous position. A Bennett spokesman said the senator was of the opinion that the room should not guarantee a new justice before the election or during a lame-duck session (months between the election and the inauguration). In 2016, Bennett urged Republicans to do their job and consider Merrick Carland. That is the difference for Democrats this time around McConnell’s insistence on 2016 Caused a new fate. However, Bennett told volunteers over the weekend that if McConnell thought he could do this, he would. “Any compulsion, embarrassment or humiliation will not change what he does,” he said. “It’s a...
    The document explains the kind of scientific tests the astronauts have to conduct (and the samples they have to collect) when they get to their destination. It also details the role the Lunar Gateway will play to establish a permanent presence on the Moon, such as how it will provide basic life support needs for astronauts preparing for their trip to the lunar surface. For those who’ve been keeping a close eye on the Artemis program, NASA also included additional details, including a new test it plans to run during the Artemis II mission. Artemis II will be the program’s first crewed flight and will take astronauts on a lunar flyby. The new test will be a “proximity operations demonstration” to assess Orion’s manual handling capabilities and all related hardware and software.

    Four years ago, Mitch McConnell infamously refused to consider the nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. Instead, McConnell twisted a never-employed 1992 comment from Joe Biden into a “rule”: Nominees to the Court should not be considered in the year before an election. There was absolutely no justification, in law or in practice, for this rule, and while Republicans trotted out statement after statement claiming that they were following some sort of “tradition,” the truth was that McConnell invented this faux tradition whole cloth. Even before Donald Trump, McConnell recognized the fundamental flaw in the American Constitution—at too many points, it counts on the participants in the process of government to act with a sense of honor and commitment to the nation. The authors of that document assumed that commitment to country, and a fair dose of public pressure, made it unnecessary to cross every “T” on the to-do list. They did...
    Even before the pandemic, with the exception of a pair of weekly classes I taught at NYU, I spent most days working in my apartment. I’m a writer; I don’t like doing it at a Starbucks or in a Writer’s Room. I prefer being at home where I at least have some autonomy on the distractions. My place isn’t large—a compact one-bedroom—but I didn’t feel claustrophobic because I was spending most nights out meeting friends for dinner, squeezing in a workout at the gym, and going to the theater. A lot.  Now mostly unable—and for a while cautiously unwilling—to spend evenings out to balance my days in, I needed to find ways to make my life work ‘round the clock in less that 500 square feet. I had Zoom happy hours, Zoom game nights, Zoom workouts, Zoom yoga (both clothed and nude), and even a couple of Zoom dates (I’m...
    “You’re brilliant, you’re beautiful, and you’re bad a–” With those words from older sister Angela, 16-year-old phenom Victoria Lee entered the most watched fight promotion on the planet. The controversial signing of the Singapore-based Canadian-Hawaiian fighter to the ONE Championship MMA fight promotion on Thursday night divided the internet — but those who know the rising star aren’t in the least concerned. Victoria was confirmed as the newest member of her family to join the ONE Championship only for fight commentators who immediately questioned her safety fighting at that level. The promotion is yet to announce when Lee will join sister Angela, who is the women’s atomweight world champion, and brother Christian, who is the lightweight world champion, in making her debut in the ONE Championship. ONE chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong was forced to defend the decision to hand a fight contract to a high school student knowing...
    Novak Djokovic was being pushed so hard in the first set by Filip Krajinovic that he urgently needed somewhere to sit down and catch his breath. Since it was 5-5 and not time for a changeover, he plopped down on one of the new boxes installed behind the court for players’ towels — which are there because ball kids are no longer providing towel service amid the coronavirus pandemic. It would take Djokovic quite a bit more work before he finally closed out the first set in 1 hour, 28 minutes and went on to finish off a 7-6 (7), 6-3 victory for a spot in the Italian Open quarterfinals for the 14th straight year on Friday.

    (CNN)Tropical Storm Wilfred formed in the eastern Atlantic on Friday, marking off the last name on the 2020 list of Atlantic hurricane names.The storm is just over 600 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands, according to the National Hurricane Center. It poses no threat to land and is forecast to weaken over the Atlantic next week. With Wilfred, the list of 2020 Atlantic hurricane names has been entirely used up for only the second time in recorded history. The NHC does not use the letters Q, U, X, Y and Z because there aren't enough names to fill those letters. To name additional storms, the NHC will use the Greek alphabet, so the next storm would be named Alpha. This has only happened once, in 2005 when the NHC had to use 6 letters of the Greek alphabet for a record number of storms. Two of them -- Beta...

    The NYC Schools Chancellor warned Thursday that the city's schools will not be able to reopen unless another 2,500 teachers are recruited, hired, and trained in the next 12 days. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio had previously said that the city will need to bring in 2,000 additional teachers, bringing the total number needed to 4,500 if in-class and at-home live learning was to be successful.  Chancellor Richard Carranza told parents leaders on Wednesday night that talks were underway with City University of New York to hire laid-off adjunct professors and graduate students, yet no further details were offered on how the mass hiring is expected to take place in less than two weeks. Even if that number is hit, some warned that thousands more will still be needed to ensure that middle schools and high schools can properly open. The news was met with anger from parents who learned...

    After they got eliminated by the Miami Heat in the second round of the 2020 Playoffs, rumors linking the Milwaukee Bucks to Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Chris Paul started to heat up once again. To keep the face of the franchise, Giannis Antetokounmpo, happy in Milwaukee, they should show that they are serious in surrounding him with quality players that could help him in fully dominating the Eastern Conference and capturing the Larry O’Brien Trophy next year. Though he’s older, Paul is still a better player than Eric Bledsoe and would give the Bucks a massive upgrade at the point guard position. However, bringing CP3 to Milwaukee wouldn’t be easy. Aside from giving up previous trade assets to convince the Thunder to engage in a trade deal, the Bucks would also be needing to sacrifice multiple players to match Paul’s massive salary. With the cost of adding him to...
    At the end of today’s PlayStation 5 event (in which Sony finally announced pricing and a release date for its next console), there was a big tease of a surprise at the very end. The next God of War game will arrive sometime in 2021. As with past games, it’s being developed by Sony’s Santa Monica Studios. It appears to be a direct sequel to the outstanding 2018 series reboot — and while we saw no game footage, it’s clear that we’ll be dealing with Ragnarök, a world-ending conflict between the gods and their enemies. Indeed, a screen simply said “Ragnarök is coming” in the teaser, a message that came after an icy version of the God of War logo and some words from protagonist Kratos. Such a fate was teased in the original game, and while we know virtually nothing about how things will unfold, it seems like Kratos...

Many people can't afford to buy or rent stand-alone homes, reverting to apartment living until their finances change. When we think about apartment living, it's easy to imagine investing in a city building or series of buildings.

But thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, a lot of people -- young ones in particular -- are looking...

Season two picks up right after season one ended, with Pedro Pascal's the Mandalorian setting off to find a home for "the child," affectionately known as Baby Yoda by fans.  A new character ominously asks Mando: "Show me the one whose safety deemed such destruction."

    Bill GatesCNBC Bill Gates expressed confidence that a coronavirus vaccine will be available by 2021. But he remains concerned that doses won't be made available to lower-income groups, particularly in less developed countries.  On a conference call, Gates told reporters that the "next big question" his foundation is thinking through is how to manufacture and distribute the vaccines to those most in need. "It shouldn't just be the rich countries winning a bidding war," he said. "Misallocating the vaccine would cause dramatic additional deaths." Wealthy countries, including the United States, Japan and the United Kingdom, have pre-ordered more than 2 billion doses of coronavirus vaccines, which could leave limited supplies in the coming year. But international efforts are underway to ensure that poorer countries still have access to the vaccine, spearheaded by groups such as the World Health Organization.  Without a vaccine, the coronavirus could do more to hurt the...

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) — We are in the heart of hurricane season and the tropics sure are busy with six tropical systems brewing. That’s right, there are six active systems including a pair of tropical storms moving across the Atlantic. Starting closest to home, there is a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms extending from near the Central and Northwest Bahamas eastward over the western Atlantic for a few hundred miles associated with a surface trough of low pressure.  This system is forecast to move westward, crossing the Bahamas and Florida later today and moving into the eastern Gulf of Mexico over the weekend.   Upper-level winds are expected to become conducive for development, and a tropical depression could form while this system moves slowly west-northwestward over the eastern Gulf of Mexico early next week. Regardless of development, this system is expected to produce locally heavy rainfall over portions of South...

In recent trading sessions, the timers have beaten one of their most rapid retreats I’ve seen in more than 40 years of tracking investment newsletters. The upshot is that the average market timer is now closer to the “extreme bearishness” end of the spectrum than to the “extreme bullishness” where he had been just a few days ago. That’s encouraging from a contrarian point of view. The average timer now has 70% of his equity trading portfolio out of the...
    House Democrats plan to advance climate change legislation in the next Congress quickly if Joe Biden wins the White House in November. A Democrat in the White House and perhaps in charge of the Senate will give House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the chance to advance a liberal wish list her rank and file have been drafting for two years. Legislation to address climate change and to impose green energy initiatives is at the top of that list and will be among the first bills the House votes on in January, the California Democrat said last week. "Yes, it will be an early part of the agenda," Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. Pelosi opened her weekly press conference lamenting the worsening fires in Oregon and California and the recent destructive hurricane in Louisiana, which she said was the fifth-strongest to hit the United States. "I mentioned these in...
    The Taurus Raging Hunter .44 Magnum revolver is a super accurate revolver that takes handgun hunting to the next level. First off, the Raging Hunter is a beautiful firearm. Its two-tone finish is complemented by an angular, ported barrel and recoil absorbing grips that are as pleasing to the eye as they are beneficial to weight reduction and control. The weight of the gun—55 ounces—is also a benefit in that it too contributes to less felt recoil, and therefore more stability, during second shot acquisition. So it is not surprising that even with open sights, the Raging Hunter delivers an incredible level of accuracy. Target shooting with .44 Special ammunition is a great way to hone shot placement with the Raging Hunter on paper. We used DoubleTap Ammunition’s 200 grain .44 Special and immediately enjoyed shooting tight patterns at 15-18 yards with open sights. (AWR Hawkins/Breitbart News) The Raging Hunter...
    Friday is the six-month mark of the Knicks’ last regular-season game. With the draft being pushed back from Oct. 16 to mid-November, league sources told The Post that the season opener will almost certainly be pushed back until after Jan. 1 – with no consensus on even the month. According to a source, some league executives would like to see next season’s opener land on Martin Luther King Day on Jan. 18 — considering the climate of the times. However, sources have suggested the NBA is completely open-minded about a starting date for February – and March has not been completely ruled out either. “The league may want to wait as a long as possible so fans can be there,’’ one NBA source said. “They may want to wait for a vaccine and that may not happen by mid-January.’’ Frank Ntilikina and RJ.

    The Charlotte Hornets power forward spoke to FanSided about a variety of topics, including what he thinks the team needs to do to make the playoffs next season. Back in March, the Charlotte Hornets were trying to make a push for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. On March 11, the Hornets earned a huge win over the rival Miami Heat by the score of 109-98. That would turn out to be their final game of the season, sadly, as the NBA was shut down that night after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19. When the NBA and NBPA agreed to terms on a return-to-play plan, 22 teams were invited to Orlando, Fla. to participate in playoff seeding games. The Hornets, however, were not one of those teams.

    (CBS Detroit) – Campaign 2020 is back in Michigan as democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden makes a stop in the Detroit area. An ailing economy, millions of jobs lost, and a pandemic that could have been controlled.

    Four tropical systems with different evolution forecasts could gain strength next week in areas of the North Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, which at the moment are not dangerous for South Florida. As meteorologists finished tracking Omar and Nana and with the rupture of the Sahara air layer that remained for several days, tropical systems are rapidly increasing their formation. The largest systems are closer to Africa, and these are the ones that have a chance to become the next two named storms. According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), a low pressure area located midway between the west coast of Africa and the Leeward Islands is gradually being defined and is expected to develop. A tropical depression is likely to form in the next day as it moves west or west-northwest across the tropical center of the Atlantic. Your...

    Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott’s optimism for the return of Pac-12 football hasn’t faded in the 48 hours since announcing the partnership with Quidel on rapid-result Covid tests. “I’m now highly confident we’re going to be able to start in January, at the latest,” Scott told ESPN’s GameDay on Saturday morning. “Whether we could start late-November, early-December, we’ll have to figure out. It’s got something to do with our public health authorities in California and Oregon saying it’s okay and blessing it.” The conference cleared one hurdle: The Quidel tests, conducted the day-of-competition and expected to be available in late September, will prevent asymptomatic players from taking the field.
