    The NFL isn’t all that different than any other sport in that it comes down to getting star quality performances from your stars. The Raiders spent a lot of money in the off-season adding more talented personnel to their defense, with the cornerstones being linebacker Cory Littleton and defensive tackle Maliek Collins. Littleton received a three-year contract worth up to $36 million as the Raiders big-ticket item in free agency. Collins cost $6 million for one season, but was called the key to the defense by both coach Jon Gruden and defensive coordiantor Paul Guenther. And while there are extenuating circumstances in that there was no off-season for a head start on getting with the program, Littleton and...
    Courtesy If you’ve been to an art event at USF or popped into a reception at a local gallery—pre-quarantine times, of course—chances are you’ve seen Wallace “Wally” Wilson, Director of the School of Art and Art History at the University of South Florida with his signature sticky-uppy white hair.  USF’s SAAH plays a critical role in educating emerging artists and shaping the art scene of the Bay area with both undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Wilson, who has been Director since 1994, shares his perspective about what the role entails, how Tampa’s art community has evolved over time, and where he sees things going from here. “Almost 500 students in the department have entrusted their lives and futures...
    In addition to configurations with the new SQ2 processor, the Surface Pro X is also available today in a new silvery Platinum finish. There are also three new colors for the matching signature keyboard: Platinum, Poppy Red and that same pretty Ice Blue from the Laptop Go. Very little else about the new Surface Pro X is new — Microsoft is promising longer battery life of up to 15 hours across both configurations (up from 13 hours), and continues to call this the thinnest Surface yet.  That sleek profile might explain why there isn’t a 5G version available, by the way. The Pro X will only work on 4G and support gigabit LTE networks for connectivity, and that’s going to...

    Surprise! Visit Denver just announced a surprise, first-ever fall Denver Restaurant Week -- but then, this year has been full of surprises, all brought on by the unpleasant surprise of the coronavirus pandemic. When it was introduced sixteen years ago, Denver Restaurant Week was designed to help eateries through a typically slow period in dining: late February and early March. Now, of course, restaurants are anticipating business getting cold, very cold, as winter descends and those impromptu patios that have expanded seating for the last several months begin to look a lot less attractive.Related Stories Denver Extends Outdoor Dining Program Through October 2021 Beer Calendar: Get Out and Vote — for IPAs COVID-19 in Colorado Timeline: The First Six Months...

    Photo via Adobe ImagesNearly 40 percent of hotel workers in Florida have lost their jobs because of the coronavirus pandemic, and industry lobbyists warn that could reach 70 percent this winter without further assistance from Congress. State and national hotel industry representatives said in a conference call Tuesday that a second round of federal assistance is needed, even if it’s just freeing up unused money from what are known as the Paycheck Protection Program and the Main Street Lending Program.

    Governor Jared Polis's September 8 press conference about COVID-19 was dominated by discussion of a deal to allow a limited number of fans to attend the September 27 game between the Denver Broncos and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — a contest that turned out to be agonizing on every level. Nearly lost amid the pigskin talk was a subject that deserved much more time in the spotlight than it received: a partnership with Google and Apple to launch the EN Express program, which will provide mobile-phone users with access to COVID-19 exposure notification technology. Sarah Tuneberg, of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, noted that the interface, accessible with a click on iPhones and through a free app for Android devices,...
    While proponents of an official safe-camping site haven't yet been able to set up camp in the city, they want to show Denver residents what such a spot would look like. "I think people don’t understand what we’re proposing.

This weekend, Chandler and others pushing the initiative will host an open house at a safe-camping site model in the parking lot of the Belong Church at East...

    Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Donald Trump’s choice for some last-minute Supreme Court packing, spoke five times at a training program for young Christian law school students put on by a right-wing extremist organization. But, while it’s certainly troubling that a likely Supreme Court justice repeatedly participated in an event intended to teach law students a “distinctly Christian worldview in every area of law” including “how God can use them as judges, law professors and practicing attorneys to help keep the door open for the spread of the Gospel in America,” the significance of the event goes well beyond Barrett. Barrett’s own presentations at the Blackstone Legal Fellowship focused on originalism, The Washington Post reports. But over the years, the reading lists for the fellowship...

    Getty: "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) demonstrators stand outside the US Supreme Court in Washington, DC, on June 15, 2020." The Trump administration is hell-bent on filling the seat of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, against her deathbed wish that she not be replaced until a new president is elected by the American people. But when it comes to honoring the rulings made by that same Supreme Court, the Trump administration is in no rush. Immigrant rights advocacy organization America’s Voice notes that Friday, Sept. 25 marked 100 days since the Supreme Court ruled the Trump administration unlawfully ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program—and for 100 days, officials have defied the Supreme Court’s ruling and refused to reopen the program...

    It's been 131 days since the House passed the $3.4 trillion HEROES Act, which Mitch McConnell has refused to take up. The election is in 41 days. But there appears to be an agreement on government funding that provides minimal coronavirus relief and puts us in a potential government shutdown fight in December, while we could also be fighting Donald Trump's efforts to throw out the election results. This could have gone much better. The House passed a continuing resolution that lasts until December 11.

    Plans are unfolding for NASA’s Artemis mission, including a plan to land the first female astronaut on the moon in 2024. The news comes after 18 months of preparation since NASA first announced the Artemis program, which will see the first American on the moon since the Apollo lunar mission in 1972.

    Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley stare bleakly ahead as Trump speaks. In May, the House passed the HEROES Act, an extensive $3 trillion package that provided emergency funds to state and local governments, sent every American a second $1,200 direct payment, extended sick leave and unemployment benefits, expanded the paycheck protection program to keep small businesses intact, provided extra pay for essential workers, funded the Postal Service, and funded an extensive plan for testing and contact tracing. Naturally, that bill sat on Sen. Mitch McConnell’s desk for two months while Republicans came up with their counterproposal—a bill that was one third the size, provided no funds for individuals, state or local governments,...

    With all the other things in the news, it is easy to overlook the fact that the president’s proposal to defer Social Security payroll tax payments went into effect on Sept. 1. Specifically, employers can stop withholding the 6.2% employee share of the Social Security tax through the end of the year for those earning under $104,000. Of course, the employer must recoup those deferred taxes from the employee in early 2021. What if I'm in my 40s and don't have a retirement fund? The proposal is a bad idea on so many fronts. • First, those fortunate enough to keep their jobs are the lucky ones and the least in need of financial relief. • Second,...

    Needless to say, there's no proof that any of this is true. Donald Trump baselessly claimed on Tuesday that Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) will be put "in charge" of a program to "destroy suburbia" if Vice President Joe Biden wins the presidential election in November. Trump's claim, of course, is not based in reality and bears no resemblance to any proposed plan from Booker or Biden. Trump has previously made similar claims about Booker, who is Black, invoking the racist "suburban housewife" trope to claim women "want safety & are thrilled that I ended the long running program where low income housing would invade their neighborhood."

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is proposing to expand Medicare by lowering the eligibility age from 65 to 60. But the program can't afford the bill for its existing crop of beneficiaries, much less the $100 billion that would be required to enroll 22 million more under Biden's plan. That's among the conclusions to draw from a new Congressional Budget Office report. The agency now projects that Medicare's Part A hospital insurance trust fund will run out of cash in just four years – two years earlier than previous estimates. This fiscal emergency was predictable. After all, Medicare has flirted with insolvency since its creation more than half a century ago. But the economic turmoil resulting from the COVID-19 lockdowns has brought the program's already shaky finances even closer to collapse. SALLY PIPES: CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN BENEFITS...

For taxpayers who pay quarterly estimated taxes, Sept. 15 marks the due date for this year's third-quarter payment.

PPP loans, which were established by the CARES Act, require that at least 60% of the proceeds be applied toward a business's payroll expenses to qualify for forgiveness.

    On 9/11, many political officials—people like Donald Trump and Mike Pence—make appearances around the country. They make speeches and take solemn photographs near memorials. They make it a point to remind people how brave our country’s police and fire departments and other first responders are. Now The New York Daily News has a depressingly explosive story about the Trump administration’s way of remembering. According to the report, millions of dollars have been withheld from the Fire Department of New York’s (FDNY) World Trade Center Health Program, a program that was set up exclusively for them and which “tracks and treats FDNY firefighters and medics suffering from 9/11 related illnesses.” How much money?
