    As the coronavirus pandemic continues to surge across the United States, several states are rolling back premature plans to loosen restrictions and finally promoting advice medical experts and scientists have been pushing for months: wear face masks.  To date, approximately 131,000 people have died and 2.9 million more have been infected with the virus as top infectious disease experts warn residents the nation is still “knee-deep” in the first wave of the pandemic.

But while Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said Tuesday he is “strongly in favor” of local governments...
    Attorneys representing the family of Andres Guardado, who was killed by a sheriff’s deputy in Gardena, said an independent autopsy has found that the 18-year-old was shot five times in the back.

    The Philadelphia arm of the Black Lives Matter movement has called for the "complete abolition" of the police department in five years, the scrapping of military bases abroad and build social work from the ground up to tackle problems in the community.

    (CNN)US health officials are increasingly proposing pooled testing -- mixing several people's biological samples and examining them in a single test -- to drastically boost the country's capacity to identify and contain coronavirus cases.The benefits could be plenty. Health experts say more surveillance testing -- especially to find infected people who are without symptoms -- could help contain the spread and let places like schools stay open safely.It isn't feasible to continually test everyone at a whole test per person. There simply aren't enough resources and supplies.But pool testing, under the right circumstances, could ultimately involve fewer tests and supplies, yet cover many more people than are tested now."Pooling would give us the capacity to go from half a million tests per day to potentially 5 million individuals tested per day," Dr. Deborah Birx, a White House coronavirus task force official, told the American Society for Microbiology last month.Read MorePreparations...

    One night, a man who had trouble figuring out the “opposite of North” called 911 to report a “sketchy,” unarmed man in a ski mask he’d passed on the street. The caller noted that no one’s life was in any danger and that the person under the mask could be a “good person” or a “bad person.” The responding Aurora, Colorado, police were somehow unable to de-escalate a situation with the unarmed, 5 foot 6 inch, 140-pound man—one who’d been wearing that ski mask due to a health condition and who pleaded with them to understand he was simply “different” and not the menacing person with superhuman strength the officers seemed to believe he was. By the time the police had finished responding to the call, they’d killed 23-year-old Elijah McClain, a young man who played the violin for kittens and brought light to those around him.

    Seth Colegrove, who lives in Newburgh, is the creator of EmpireExplorer.com, which profiles more than 600 historic destinations in New York state, including 18 in the Highlands, such as the Nelsonville Union Free School, The Grove and The Birches.
