    President-elect Joe Biden will “hit the ground running” on his first day at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, signing a series of executive orders to address the challenges of the coronavirus pandemic and roll back several initiatives from President Donald Trump’s administration. CNN’s Arlette Saenz reported on Biden’s plans in a segment with Wolf Blitzer, describing the roughly dozen orders he wants to sign on day one. Among the reversals of Trump policies: rejoining the Paris Climate Accord and revoking the ban on travel from certain predominately Muslim countries. “The President-Elect also administering what they’re calling a ‘100 day masking challenge’ and while the president-elect wants to promote mask wearing, he can’t exactly require it across the country, but where he can require it is in federal buildings and interstate travel,” said Saenz. Other executive orders focused on alleviating the economic troubles from the pandemic will include extending the pause on student loan payments and interest and the restrictions on evictions...

    (CNN) — Next year will be a crucial year for Erika Kirgios as she works to complete her doctorate, publish academic papers and try to land a faculty job at a university. Not surprisingly, one of her New Year’s resolutions is to focus on her career. In order to find some delight in what could be long nights working alone, she is applying her research in the science of behavior change to pair meticulous work — writing research articles — with a decadent temptation — in her case, a particular candle and cup of tea. “I’m really going to focus on writing,” Kirgios said. “I only light my favorite candle and drink my favorite tea when I’m writing because I need to make sure that I have the external motivations to get started. The doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School has an advantage — her research focuses...

    Realtors in New York City hope that President Donald Trump makes good on his plans to live at Mar-a-Lago in Florida after leaving the White House. They reason that they believe without him, real estate prices, which have fallen dramatically, will rebound in the Big Apple, according to a TMZ report. Since Trump’s win in 2016, realtors report that real estate prices in his signature building have dropped. For example, two of the units in the towering building fell from being worth $4.3 and $3.5 million to $2.495 and $3.3 million, respectively. The dramatic devaluation in the properties remains similar throughout the Trump Tower, and the agents struggle to sell them. While there are multiple reasons for the drop in value, like the pandemic and a poor market, those trying to sell them also blame New Yorkers’ general dislike of Trump. They believe that the president leaving the area and...
    As Donald Trump continues to contest the result of the 2020 election, many of his Republican allies are hoping that his “temper tantrum” is only temporary, Vice reported. “There are a lot of Republicans biting their tongues with the belief that Trump’s temper tantrum will subside in a week or so,” one Pennsylvania Republican close to legislative leadership told the publication. “We’re in the death throes of idiocracy,” they added. According to Vice, Republicans in Georgia, Wisconsin, and Arizona privately echoed these sentiments in recent conversations with the publication. Interestingly, a Thursday report from The New York Times claimed that Trump’s attacks on the election are part of a strategy to delay the certification of the results to maintain a grip on his base. Afterward, he allegedly plans to announce his plans to run for president in 2024. Despite apparently realizing he has lost, Vice noted that Republicans still feel...

    Senators Kelly Loeffler, R-Ga., and David Perdue, R-Ga., at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on July 15, 2020.Jonathan Ernst | Reuters Wealthy families have Georgia on their minds. That's because the outcome of two contentious races for the Senate could shape their plans to pass on millions of dollars to their heirs, as well as the strategies they may use to cut their income taxes. President-elect Joe Biden campaigned on a detailed tax plan that would raise taxes for high-income households. That plan would also overhaul the way wealthy families pass assets to future generations, subjecting large wealth transfers to steeper taxes.

    Do you want me to take 'em off? I'll do it. I'll do it right here. It's the last two weeks of the election, a pandemic is still sweeping unchecked through most of America, and there's an asteroid poised to pay us a visit on election eve—but who says we can't have some fun? McClatchy brings us some much-needed comic relief with this deadpanned gem for the ages, a look at Republican hopes for the debate tonight. "Republican operatives say they are hoping for a crisp, policy-filled contrast from the president Thursday," sez McClatchy. Ahahaha! Oh my God, you got us on that one. Did not see that one coming. Crisp! While McClatchy goes on to note that none of those operatives are "holding their breath" for that outcome—after all, some likely have families that love them, or at least tolerate them—there's little explanation of what would count as a...

    Reopening Campuses Is Not Working — and Important Voices Arent Being Heard, Writes UNC Professor Current CD Rates — September 2020 The Buccaneers are the NFL’s new free agent super team. Can it work right away? The decision on Thursday by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to sign Leonard Fournette is so patently on-brand for the team that it felt inevitable. This team wants to win, right now, and it’ll worry about the future when it comes. © Photo by Douglas P. DeFelice/Getty Images It flies in the face of all traditional football knowledge. In a league that rewards the patient grooming, and training of players inside a system — the Bucs are instead going all in on free agents, de-emphasizing the draft, and hoping this all comes together quickly. It’s a fascinating experiment, one we’ve seen before, but never quite to the prolific nature that Tampa is doing it....

    (CNN)In March 2018, a month after the film "Black Panther" was released, the fictional country Wakanda was the fourth most-mentioned African country on Twitter -- after Egypt, South Africa and Kenya -- according to a 2019 study by the University of Southern California. The fact that Africa's fourth most-talked about country doesn't exist confirms just how powerful pop culture is in shaping our understanding of the world around us. Moky MakuraSo when Beyoncé Knowles-Carter -- one of the most influential living artists on the planet -- released a teaser trailer for her new visual album "Black is King" in late June, featuring (as she described in an Instagram post about the project) "Black history and African tradition," some Africans didn't like it. With its imagery of face and body paintings, feathers and animal fur, in celebrating our African traditions "Black is King," perhaps a little naively, missed the pulse...
    I think some women might be in for a brutal reality check in September if they’re secretly hoping for the college football season to be canceled. It occurred to me that some women might be secretly hoping the season doesn’t happen out of some ill-conceived notion that it’ll mean they get more time with their boyfriends.

    Landowners in South Texas are launching another front in their battle against President Trump’s efforts to build a wall on the Texas-Mexico border. And this time, they’re using the president’s own words against him. In a federal lawsuit filed Monday in Laredo, Zapata County and two border landowners are alleging that the construction of the barrier is driven by little more than racism and politics and is therefore unconstitutional. “The action of the government is based on animus toward a group and that’s unconstitutional, you can’t make policy in governmental action based on animus toward a group,” said attorney Carlos Flores. "This is something that hasn’t really been brought up before" as a tool to fight the wall, Flores said. Flores filed suit on behalf of Zapata County, Laredoan Melissa Cigarroa, who owns an interest in more than 170 acres of land in Zapata County, and Zapata County resident George...
