    By Rodolfo León 0 COMMENTS 02/16/2021 4:28 pm No one in their right mind ever believed that Google Stadia it would have a successful future within the video game industry. Regardless, Google struggled to make this service reach gamers around the world, but it just didn’t work and as a consequence, last week they announced the closure of their development studios. As such, Stadia will still exist, but all programmers and developers who Google had hired to create exclusive games to the platform were fired. The saddest thing about it is that many of these people left their previous jobs to join Stadia, and in fact, a week before letting them go, Google told them that “they were doing quite well.” A former employee of Stadia shared an email that arrived shortly before they were fired: “Stadia Games has made great progress building a diverse and...

As soon as she sat down at the table, the interpreter commented that she felt “excited” since “In these times, finding yourself in a place in meeting with people is impressive”, referring to the audience in the stands of the set, who applauded him. “At some point we will value not having physical contact with people,” admitted Motos, adding: “These ten days locked up without being able to do anything … I have done yoga in my room: Do you also practice?”.

    Chinese medics have been secretly filmed admitting they knew how dangerous the coronavirus was when it began to wreak havoc in Wuhan - but say they were told to lie about it.  Medical professionals in Wuhan say they knew about virus deaths as early as December 2019, but it was mid-January before China first informed the WHO of a fatality.  They also realised that the virus was passing between humans, but hospitals were told 'not to tell the truth' and calls to scrap Lunar New Year festivities were rejected because authorities wanted to 'present a harmonious and prosperous society'.  The new testimony, which will be broadcast tonight in an ITV documentary called Outbreak: The Virus That Shook The World, flies in the face of China's denials that it covered up the epidemic in its earliest days.  It comes amid growing pressure on China after a WHO-backed panel said on Monday...

    Breonna Taylor, 26, was shot and killed by Louisville police in March  Cops investigating Breonna Taylor's ex-boyfriend as part of a drugs probe were repeatedly told that she was not receiving suspicious packages for him at her home, but they still listed it in their search warrant and raided it.   Taylor was shot and killed as three cops returned fire on her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, in March. The cops had broken down her door with a battering ram in the middle of the night as part of an investigation into her previous boyfriend, Jamarcus Glover.  According to the cops, Taylor's apartment in Louisville, Kentucky, was crucial to the investigation so it was a warranted raid.

During the clash between the two groups, an older woman was told to “check” her “f***ing privilege” and “get back over there.” She responded by saying left-wing protesters will “fall so hard they won’t know” what “hit them.” “You are a domestic terrorist group and we will see to it that you fall, and you fall so hard you won’t know what hit you,” the woman said, according to video posted by Daily Caller reporter Jorge Ventura. “Yo, lady,” a young male protester shouted, “Check your f***ing privilege and get back over there.” As the young man walks over to confront the older woman, a man intervenes, walking in front of the protester, holding his arms out to direct him away from the...
    TEL AVIV — Only 200 Palestinians showed up for what was supposed to be a massive demonstration in Ramallah against Israel’s plans to annex parts of the West Bank, AFP reported Monday. The Palestinian Authority invested a lot of resources into the success of the rally – including giving the day off for civil servants – but all its efforts were in vain as the crowds failed to gather. “[On the Palestinian street, mobilization against looming Israeli actions has been muted,” the report said. “There is fatigue,” Palestinian analyst Nour Odeh told AFP. “Fatigue from the usual — to stand in Ramallah and wait for the cameras to show how angry we are,” she added. “You’re talking to yourself, and then what?” The report noted there was a substantially larger rally in the West Bank city of Jericho last week, “where crowds sang in unison and hoisted banners declaring ‘Palestine...
    One heart attack, a 100 percent artery blockage and two procedures later, Nick O’Leary is planning his NFL return. The 27-year-old tight end, who signed with the Las Vegas Raiders in April, is hoping to return to the league for the 2021 season, following a May 19 angioplasty, from which he expects to make a full recovery. O’Leary, who split the previous five seasons with the Bills, Dolphins and Jaguars, was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list in May and said the Raiders informed him that the team would be open to bringing him back. “I feel good,” O’Leary told The Palm Beach Post. “I feel better than I did before.

    With so much rage from officials and community members directed at Lt. Bob Kroll, he had considered whether he should step down as president of the Minneapolis police union. He discussed it with the Minneapolis police chief, the Minneapolis Police Federation board and officers. “I thought if it might help calm the situation in Minneapolis, if that would do it, I would consider it,” Kroll said Tuesday. “And the feedback that I got back from our membership and our board was exactly the opposite — that it would just fuel more fire and they would take it as a victory, much like taking the 3rd precinct empowered them to … destroy South Minneapolis.” Kroll and other Minneapolis police union leaders spoke out publicly Tuesday — it was the first time since George Floyd died after officers pinned him to the ground, while he was handcuffed, on May 25.

Mike Braun, R-Ind., told "The Daily Briefing" Tuesday that both parties should find a middle ground on the issue of law enforcement reform after Senate Democrats described a Republican proposal as a "non-starter."

    Several minority corrections officers at the Ramsey County jail filed a discrimination charge Friday after they were allegedly banned from guarding former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin over concerns they faced “racialized trauma.” Minority detention center staff were allegedly told that they would be a potential “liability” around Chauvin, the white former police officer charged with murder for the death of George Floyd, according to the racial discrimination charges filed with the state’s Department of Human Rights, the Star Tribune reported Sunday. As a result, the 8 officers were ordered to a separate floor, distancing them from Chauvin, the charges claimed.

Chauvin was immediately fired after the incident and faces second-degree murder and manslaughter charges. He was booked at the Ramsey County Jail May 29 and transferred...

    Last week the Washington Post reported that their states were among 14 seeing their highest seven-day average of new coronavirus cases since the start of the pandemic. On Tuesday, Arizona, Florida, and Texas saw their highest-ever number of daily positive tests, according to Reuters. But rather than acknowledging that they moved too quickly, the governors of those states have sought to explain away the sudden spike in cases by casting blame on random culprits. Abbott complained on Monday that twenty-somethings in Texas were behind the abrupt shift. "What we're seeing there is that people of that age group, they're not following these appropriate best health and safety practices," he told a local television station. "They're not wearing face masks, they're not sanitizing their hands, they're not maintaining the safe distancing practices. And as a result, they are contracting COVID-19 at a record pace in the state of Texas.” DeSantis also...

    John McDermott is owner of Car Tender auto shop in Seattle's Capitol Hill — and it's located just outside the "autonomous zone" George Floyd protesters took over last week. But being outside the infamously lawless area didn't keep his business safe enough Sunday night when he said a suspect smashed a window and broke into their shop and tried to start a fire on the front counter, KIRO-TV reported. What happened next? McDermott and his son Mason told the station the suspect doused the counter with hand sanitizer and then lit it on fire, and the pair were able to quickly extinguish it.

    Mayor de Blasio has expressed concern that the George Floyd protests could boost the coronavirus pandemic just as New Yorkers have finally gained the upper hand — but City Hall doesn’t seem too interested in finding out for sure. Workers for the city’s contact tracing program are told not to ask those who’ve tested positive for the bug whether they’ve taken part in the demonstrations, instead relying on them to cough up the information themselves, officials said. “We’re doing everything we can to keep New Yorkers safe while respecting individual privacy,” said de Blasio spokeswoman Avery Cohen. “Over the course of their interview with a tracer, a person may be asked if they were in a large crowd or event in recent weeks, with full confidence that any information they share will be protected under the fullest extent of the law.” While there is no specific directive barring tracers from...
    WASHINGTON PARK — For weeks, business owners, residents and legislators have blasted city leaders for not doing enough to protect the South and West sides when looting and vandalism spilled out of Downtown and into their neighborhoods. On Thursday, many of them feel they received evidence they were right. A group of Chicago Police officers were caught on video entering the burglarized Englewood office of Rep.

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A high school teacher in Florida resigned from his job over allegations that he belonged to a hate group on Facebook and posted racist comments. Vernon “Chuck” Henderson, 40, told the Tampa Bay Times that he is innocent and that his Facebook account was hacked. The social studies teacher at Tampa’s Gaither High School said the Hillsborough County pubic school district pushed him to resign. “I didn’t really have a choice,” he told the newspaper on Thursday. “They called me at 3:30 yesterday. They said if I didn’t resign, they would put me before the school board, which would fire me and go after my pension and my teaching certificate. They gave me until 5 o’clock.” TOP STORIES Hillary Clinton: Trump is calling for violence against American citizens Van Jones: Forget the KKK, its the white, liberal Hillary Clinton supporter we should worry about Joe Bidens...
    Historian John Barry believes that one of the big lessons the government should have learned from the 1918 influenza pandemic is to "tell the truth." Barry, who wrote a book on the topic, called "The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Plague in History," does not think the current White House has learned that lesson. "Clearly, they have not told the truth, unfortunately," Barry told CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett on this week's episode of "The Takeout" podcast. Listen to this episode on ART19 Barry contrasted administration figures like Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's leading infectious diseases expert, with White House officials.
