She also ran in a special election to represent the district following the death of incumbent Elijah Cummings but lost to Democratic candidate Kweisi Mfume.  The candidate also made an appearance during the 2020 Republican National Convention to show her support for President Donald Trump and criticize her state’s former Democratic leaders. “I want Baltimore to be an example to Republicans around the country that we can compete in our inner cities if we reach out to the citizens and deliver real results,”...

    A gynecologist dubbed 'the uterus collector' performed hysterectomies on 'everybody he saw' at a Georgia immigrant detention facility, a whistleblower nurse has claimed.  The complaint to the Homeland Security Department's internal watchdog relies on accounts of Dawn Wooten, who worked full-time as a licensed practical nurse at the Irwin County Detention Center until July, when she was demoted to work as needed.  'Everybody he sees has a hysterectomy - just about everybody,' Wooten said. 'He's even taken out the wrong ovary on a young lady. 'She was supposed to get her left ovary removed because it had a cyst on the left ovary; he took out the right one. She was upset.

    Steve Kirsner was 39 years old when he began putting on concerts and events at the SAP Center in 1996, back when the venue was known as the San Jose Arena. Yet, he began prepping for the job at a much earlier age. “I like to say that I started working in the entertainment industry when I was in the third grade,” says Kirsner, longtime vice president for booking and events at SAP Center. “I played the bass fiddle in the school orchestra but had zero talent. But they kept me around because I made myself useful by fixing instruments and setting up chairs and music stands for class performances.” Related Articles Marcus Shelby named artistic director for Healdsburg...

    Maine’s biggest COVID-19 outbreak is linked to a wedding officiated by the pastor of a distancing-defying church who says masks are part of a “socialistic platform.” Now more than 144 COVID-19 patients have been linked to the event, and three people are dead. Todd Bell is pastor of the Calvary Baptist Church in Sanford, Maine.

    SAN FRANCISCO - These are nail-biting days for the millions of people in the U.S. who use TikTok, the wildly popular video sharing app owned by a Chinese firm.    The stakes are high.   The U.S. government, citing national security concerns, has given the firm until Sept. 15 to sell itself or leave the country.   ByteDance, the Chinese firm that owns TikTok, is reportedly talking to several potential buyers including Microsoft and Walmart, which have joined forces to possibly make a bid, as well as Oracle.   And the Chinese government has changed its export rules about what parts of the firm’s technology can be included in the deal to exclude the app’s powerful recommendation algorithm. It powers the “For You” feature in the app that suggests...
    NORRISTOWN, Pa. (CBS) — You may call this the perfect setting for a stage production of “Tarzan.” The Prism Theatre is performing an outdoor, socially-distanced production at the Elmwood Park Zoo. For months, the magic of live theater has been reduced to a memory. In Montgomery County though, art is alive once again. Thursday was the last rehearsal before “Tarzan: The Musical” opens in Norristown. It will do so on a custom-built outdoor stage on the grounds of the Elmwood Zoo, where almost all rehearsals have been held. Due to bad weather, the final run-through was moved indoors — just another way the cast and crew with the Prism Theatre Center have had to adapt. “First of all we were...
    During the 2020 Republican National Convention last week, it was painfully clear that President Donald Trump was emphasizing white grievance along with fear-mongering. Some of the speakers tried to soften Trump’s image and show empathy, including First Lady Melania Trump and White House Senior Adviser Ivanka Trump (the president’s daughter). But journalist David Ignatius, in his Washington Post column, stresses that Trumpism continues to be a very bitter and angry ideology. Republicans, Ignatius writes, “dressed up their rage in prettier colors at this year’s convention.” “Speakers from First Lady Melania Trump to Vice President Pence tried to make the GOP sound like a party of healing and tolerance,” Ignatius explains. “But smoldering at the center of the populist Republican Party,...
    (CNN)From Ecuador to Egypt, Ghana to Guyana, The Carter Center has been supporting democratic elections around the world since 1989 to ensure they are free, fair and transparent. This year, for the first time in our history, we will be turning our attention to the US, where we plan to launch a campaign to strengthen transparency and trust in the election process. Why? Americans are losing faith in the US electoral process. The country is deeply polarized, and people on both the right and left are concerned about threats to the security of the election and the credibility of the process. Many groups, especially minorities, face obstacles that make it difficult to vote. These challenges are even greater because of...

    Amanda Marcotte August 20, 2020 12:35PM (UTC) The official theme of the third night of the Democratic National Convention, the night that Sen. Kamala Harris of California accepted the nomination as Joe Biden's running mate, was "A More Perfect Union." It soon became clear, however, that the real theme of the evening was Ladies Night.

    Public sex is a thrill because it can happen anywhere. House parties, gay bars, parked cars, single-use restrooms, leather parties, the Wendy’s near City Hall, the hotel bathroom at a gaming convention. Each of these locations is loaded with memories. Maybe the encounters there were spontaneous and completely unexpected, like running into a friend at a queer bookstore and fucking after drinks. Spontaneous public sex is a way of life for many queers across genders. It’s also risky as hell. One misstep—fucking in the wrong bathroom, going too fast for your partner, hooking up in a gay bar that’s more “LGB” than “LGBTQ”—can spell disaster. Hide Then again, simply being in public can be a disaster when you’re queer. Having...
