    This Thursday, February 18, the new American technological jewel should land on Martian soil. Perseverance will in principle land near a large crater called a “delta” by experts, where there would be water residues which an old lake is likely to be the source of. If there has been life around this location, there should surely be traces of it. This is where the American rover, whose main mission is to analyze Martian soil, comes into play. After numerous calibration tests, the analysis campaigns of the structure of the red planet can start between seven and ten days later. Perseverance will then be able to carry out laser shots, designed and developed by Thales. The objective of the mission is therefore to know … Follow La Tribune Share economic information, receive our newsletters

    (CNN)Nearly a week into his administration, President Joe Biden is focused on creating a path toward equity after inheriting a deeply divided nation. After picking the most racially diverse Cabinet in US history, Biden jump-started his efforts by proposing a sweeping immigration overhaul, disbanding the 1776 commission and reversing a Trump-era ban on most transgender Americans joining the military. "President Biden believes gender identity should not be a bar to military service and that America's strength is found in its diversity," White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday. "America is stronger around the world when it is inclusive."On Tuesday, Biden signed a range of executive orders that could potentially help bridge the gap in homeownership between people of color and White people, strengthen the fight against bigotry faced by Asian Americans and ease the anxiety of families with incarcerated relatives. "I firmly believe the nation is ready to change...
    In 2021, anything is possible — including a trade between bitter rivals. The Athletic’s Lindsay Adler reports that Yankees pitcher Adam Ottavino is shipping up to Boston in a trade to the Red Sox. The New York Post’s Joel Sherman reports that Ottavino and prospect Frank German are heading to Boston, with the Red Sox taking on Ottavino’s contract. Source: The Yankees have traded Adam Ottavino to the Red Sox. — Lindsey Adler (@lindseyadler) January 25, 2021 This marks the first time the AL East rivals have struck a deal since 2014, when the Yankees sent utilityman Kelly Johnson to Boston in exchange for shortstop Stephen Drew, very obviously a blockbuster deal (not really).

    Loading the player... Weeks away from the 2020 election and politics continues to be on Americans’ minds. As this election year is estimated to bring forth record amounts of early voter turnout, voter efficacy is still somehow a debate. Recently in California, Republicans were erecting mail drop-in boxes, where voters could turn in their votes. Whether the move was creating voter efficacy or ballot-throwing, many folks were alarmed including Attorney General Xavier Becerra and Secretary of State Alex Padilla, who ordered the GOP to remove said boxes because it’s illegal. Though the GOP said they have the right to launch mail drop-in boxes, it’s the Board of Elections that is truly in charge of collecting ballots.  Read More: LeBron James is encouraging young people of color to vote With many other states encountering similar issues—from the Texas Governor Greg Abbot attempting to reduce ballot drop offs to the...
    Berkeley being Berkeley, it’s probably no surprise that climate change and police reform would top the list of issues that candidates for mayor say they intend to tackle. Although they share similar priorities, the candidates offer different approaches. Mayor Jesse Arreguin, who has led the city since 2016 and is seeking another term in the Nov. 3 election, is being challenged by  Wayne Hsiung, an environmental attorney and co-founder of animal rights group Direct Action Everywhere; Aidan Hill, a UC Berkeley student and vice chairman of the city’s Homeless Commission; and Naomi D. Pete, who also ran in 2016. In recent interviews with this news organization, Arreguin, Hill and Hsiung all agreed climate change is an important issue for them and Berkeley.

    The case to fire Adam Gase is growing stronger by the week. When the Jets hired Adam Gase in 2019, eyebrows (and pitchforks) were raised, torches were lit and Jets fans around the world were left wide-eyed — coincidentally mirroring the eyes of their head coach. There was plenty of reason for the Jets to think Gase may have been the head coaching answer to lead New York back to the playoffs, but a difficult-to-stomach 7-9 season, followed by two weeks of disgustingly non-competitive football in 2020, have seemingly turned the heat up on Gase’s desk chair in Florham Park. According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the Jets are considering a coaching change should New York continue to sputter in the coming weeks. High-level #Jets’ executives have heard all the Adam Gase criticism and are starting to take notice, per @mortreport. The #Jets have the #Colts today and the #Broncos...

    Until recently, it was a safe bet that people rarely noticed the statues around them. They stood, scattered all over the city’s parks and public spaces: statues of people like Floyd B. Olson, Charles Lindbergh, Leif Erikson, or Nathan Hale in St. Paul; or Mary Tyler Moore, Kirby Puckett, “Hiawatha,” and Hubert Humphrey over in Minneapolis. Especially these days, with most noses buried in smartphones, they’ve been the often-unseen background of everyday life. Photo by Meg Spielman PeldoColleen SheehyBut things change quickly. Over the last few months, the role of statues in public life has become central to debates about structural injustice and how we understand history. Seeing statues be publicly challenged and even removed in places like Richmond, Virginia, or the Minnesota Capitol, it’s time to look again at the figurative monuments that surround us in the public spaces of our cities. “I really don’t think about statues that...

    Netflix’s Cursed is a retelling of the Arthurian legends that is firmly rooted in the fantasy genre and brings a fresh female perspective to a normally male-dominated group of legends. However, those that are looking for a replacement for The Witcher or Game of Thrones may not be entirely satisfied. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Cursed tells the myth of King Arthur from the perspective of the female character, Nimue. This character is played by Katherine Langford, of 13 Reasons Why fame. She portrays a Fey character who is gifted a magical sword and will, ultimately, become the Lady of the Lake.

    Wayne Jones was walking on the side of the road when he was stopped by police in 2013. Jones, a 50-year-old homeless black man diagnosed with schizophrenia, had violated an ordinance in Martinsburg, West Virginia, that requires all pedestrians to use the sidewalk. When an officer asked if he was carrying a weapon, Jones fled the scene, according to court documents. Officers caught up with Jones and tried taking him into custody. They tased, kicked and put Jones in a chokehold. Five officers surrounded Jones, and when one accused Jones of stabbing him, the officers stood back and ordered him to drop a knife that officers spotted. Jones, who remained motionless on the ground despite the officers' commands, was shot 22 times, the documents said. "The video was the second hardest thing I had to watch, the first was watching my mother in tears when I told her," Bruce Jones,...
