    Highlights from the ballot … For what might be the first November weekend in my long relationship with the AP poll, the top-10 teams on my ballot were unchanged from the previous week. Related Articles Cancellations mount in the Pac-12: This wasn’t supposed to happen. What went wrong? Saturday Night Five: CFP now out of reach and why it matters; officiating woes; Oregon State’s statement; UCLA’s forward leap Alabama’s on top, followed by Notre Dame, Clemson and Ohio State — then comes the next tier.

The combination of wins (seven) and cancellations (three) left me with no reason to tweak the order, or yank or insert a team.

    (CNN)Thanksgiving is "potentially the mother of all super spreader events." That's the verdict from CNN medical analyst Dr. Jonathan Reiner, as millions of Americans travel to be with loved ones this week, risking an explosion of Covid-19 infections in the coming days. The US has been here before. Reiner pointed to the fallout from the Sturgis motorcycle rally in South Dakota this summer, which sparked a spike in cases in the Midwest. "Now imagine that on a massive scale -- people leaving from every airport in the United States, and carrying [the] virus with them," he added. And a negative test result should not give Americans the confidence to travel for the holidays. Tests can return either false positive or negative results, Department of Health and Human Services official Brett Giroir said Tuesday. "If you do get a negative test, it doesn't give you a free pass," he said, explaining...

An expedition sent out by the American Museum of Natural History in New York has just reported the resurrection of the largest flesh-eating land animal thus far known to the world. This constitutes one of the most remarkable finds in the recent history of paleontology. The curator of the Department of Vertebrate Paleontology of this museum, Professor Henry F. Osborn, under whose direction the expedition was sent out, has conferred upon this newly discovered monster the title ‘Tyrannosaurus Rex.’ In plain English this means the ‘Tyrant King Saurian,’ or the King of Tyrant Saurians.

    Government officials in Sudan appealed for international assistance on Monday to deal with surging numbers of Ethiopian refugees fleeing the country’s recent internal conflict. In Sudan’s southeastern Al-Qadarif state, which borders Ethiopia, Governor Suleiman Ali Muhammad Musa told reporters on November 16 that the response from international aid donors has so far been insufficient to meet the needs of an estimated 25,000 refugees that have flooded the border to cross into neighboring Sudan since early November. Musa said that the region he governs is currently hosting 15,500 refugees from Ethiopia, “with 2,500 harbored at Umm Rakuba camp and another 13,000 staying in village number Eight al-Fasqa, the controversial area where both Sudan and Ethiopia have haggled on the extent of their boundary,” Kenyan newspaper the Daily Nation reported.

    The House is expected to vote Saturday on legislation that would provide an additional $25 billion to the U.S. Postal Service and reverse recent operational changes that critics say delayed mail delivery. The bill, titled the "Delivering for America Act," would also ensure the Postal Service would not be able to implement any operational changes until January 2021, after the November election.  The rare Saturday session highlights the importance of the agency during the coronavirus pandemic and ahead of November's presidential vote.  The House passed a massive $3 trillion coronavirus relief bill in May which would have provided $25 billion for the Postal Service. However, Senate Republicans have refused to consider the legislation, and congressional Democrats and White House officials have not reached a deal on a relief bill.

    A staggering 25 percent of mail-in ballots cast in Brooklyn for June’s primary elections were declared invalid, it was revealed on Tuesday, as Mayor Bill de Blasio called on the Board of Elections to shape up by November. More than 120,000 absentee ballots were filed in Kings County for the June 23 primary but about 30,000 were initially disqualified — and it wasn’t the fault of the voters, according to Rodneyse Bichotte, head of the Brooklyn Democratic Party. Bichotte — also a state assemblywoman whose district includes Flatbush, Ditmas Park and Midwood — said the disqualifying issues included a lack of postmark or late arrival. The BOE was still untangling the mess six weeks after the primaries and was unable to provide hard citywide figures on Tuesday. But the Brooklyn debacle suggests a troubling failure in a system that may be relied upon to a elect a president this...
