    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island's governor lashed out at 19- to 24-year-olds Wednesday for irresponsible behavior she said helped push coronavirus infections to their highest single-day levels since last spring. Gov. Gina Raimondo told a news conference she's appointing a young adult task force in hopes of persuading college students and others to avoid large social gatherings, wear masks and maintain social distancing. “You may be young and healthy, but you're spreading this to those who aren’t young and healthy,” the Democrat said. COVID-19 clusters have been reported at Providence College and the University of Rhode Island, where students have gathered in groups off-campus. ___ TRICK OR TREATING Raimondo said trick or treating will be allowed this Halloween despite...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — When the Preakness happens Saturday at Pimlico, 250 people will be allowed at the facility, but racing officials say it won’t be spectators, despite what Baltimore City’s mayor said Wednesday. During a press conference, Mayor Jack Young said up to 250 spectators would be allowed to watch the Preakness live at Pimlico. Young said Gov. Larry Hogan amended his executive order to allow minimal spectators at the horse race this Saturday. Large scale events have not been allowed throughout the coronavirus pandemic. “We look forward to the day when we can welcome fans back to all hilltop,” Young said. But Maryland Jockey officials said although up to 250 people will be allowed, it’ll be for event staff,...
    A lesbian couple in the UK has slammed Facebook for rejecting a video they posted of themselves gently touching their foreheads for its “sexually explicit adult content,” according to a report. Singer-songwriter Sera Golding-Young, 36, and her wife Frankie, 32, posted the video as a sponsored ad for a new album – but it was banned under the social media giant’s “Objectionable Content” clause, which forbids nudity or sexual activity, the Cavendish Press News reported. “This ad isn’t running because it can’t promote adult services or products that highlight sexual pleasure,” Facebook’s message read. “Ads must not contain adult content including nudity, depictions of people in explicit or suggestive positions or activities that are overly suggestive or sexually provocative,” it...
    There is no question that democracy is under attack on a number of fronts this election. That is why it is so refreshing that California voters have the opportunity this November to vote for Proposition 18, which will allow voters who will be 18 by the general election to also vote in the primary. Voting is a privilege and a responsibility in our country, and our nation is founded on this right. There is no reason why we would withhold the ability to participate in the full election cycle from first-time voters who want to cast a ballot in the primary as well as the general election. We already trust people this age with the responsibility to enlist in the...

    These thrill-seeking grannies are young at heart . . . and in the loins. A new documentary that premiered last night in the UK reports on a new tourism trend seeing older European women traveling to West African country Gambia for love and sex with younger men. In turn, the aspirational Gambian men may often receive gifts of tens of thousands of dollars for their company. British broadcaster Seyi Rhodes, host of the special on BBC’s Channel 4 network titled “Sex on the Beach,” described the Gambian nightlife scene as “hundreds of older white women with young black men.” “It’s paradise. You could have a different man every night,” said one tourist. But it’s not just about sex, according to 32-year-old...
    Tennessee has been in the news lately because the Nashville mayor was caught fudging data to keep businesses in the state's capital closed for longer than necessary. The outrage triggered by the story caused the mayor to relent and ease some of the restrictions. But new data compiled by Nashville for Rational COVID Policy shows that the entire premise of lockdown and mask-wearing is unfounded because the scope of the threat of the virus, as well as the effectiveness of the responses to it, are exaggerated. Josh Stevenson, a co-founder of Nashville for Rational COVID Policy, sent me a presentation that he shared with Tennessee lawmakers, showing how unremarkable the excess deaths have been in his state and...
    David Hogg, the 20-year-old survivor of the 2018 Parkland school shooting and co-founder of the March for Our Lives gun control advocacy group, apologized Monday for comments he made denouncing violence and looting. Civil unrest has overtaken many of America's cities this year as anarchists and Antifa have used Black Lives Matter anti-police brutality protests to engage in arson and looting. Protests in Portland, Seattle, New York City, Rochester, and Kenosha in response to police killings of black Americans George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Daniel Prude and the police shooting of Jacob Blake have all turned violent. Some Black Lives Matter protesters have justified the violence and called for police to be killed. Speaking out against...

    BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – Health officials in Boulder have made a significant adjustment to their public health order that blocks gathering for 18 to 22 year olds. The order was put into effect late last week after a big jump in the number or positive COVID-19 cases over the past three weeks, especially among University of Colorado students. After some residents voiced concerns they would be placed in unsafe situations in public settings, the order was changed on Monday morning and now bans gatherings of three or more people for anyone in that age group. Before, it blocked gatherings of any size for 18 to 22 year olds. The order only applies to people in the city of Boulder. LINK:...
    By JOCELYN NOVECK, AP National Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Misty Copeland has long told the story of the childhood ballet teacher who recognized her talent and took the young dancer, then 13, from the cramped motel room she was living in to stay in her own house for three years, so she could continue her training. Now “Miss Bradley” — Cynthia Bradley — is one of the key characters in Copeland’s new children’s book, “Bunheads,” a story based on Copeland’s own youth and introduction to ballet. In “Bunheads,” the story of young Misty's first ballet class and first dance production (the classic ballet “Coppelia”), the celebrated ballerina not only pays tribute to key figures in her youth, but explores...

    LONDON (AP) — As authorities sought to contain COVID-19 outbreaks at British universities Sunday, some students complained they were being “imprisoned” in their dormitories and politicians debated whether young people should be allowed to go home for Christmas. Students at universities in Glasgow, Manchester and Edinburgh — who have returned to campus in the past few weeks — are being asked to self-isolate in their residence halls, with security guards at some schools preventing young people from leaving their buildings. While students at Glasgow University greeted the lockdown with humor, posting signs asking passersby to “send beer,” those in Manchester had a darker message, taping “HMP MMU” in their windows, suggesting the dormitory had become “Her Majesty’s Prison Manchester Metropolitan...
    A lesbian couple have condemned Facebook after a promotional advert showing their foreheads gently touching was rejected for being 'sexually explicit adult content' - while an image showing a heterosexual couple in the same pose was allowed. Musical duo Sera Golding-Young, 36, and her wife Frankie, 32, had posted a video to announce the release of a new album - and made a sponsored advertisement in a bid to reach fans. But the post was said to have violated Facebook's Community Standards rules under its 'Objectionable Content' clause, which targets illicit images of nudity or sexual activity. The couple claim they uploaded the same video and copy but used a picture of a heterosexual couple in the same romantic pose -...

    CHICAGO (WLS) -- A few hundred people came together in Daley Plaza to call for justice for Breonna Taylor Saturday afternoon."I just feel like going to the protests, it's not enough, but it's going to do something.

    “The graveyards are full of indispensable men,” Charles de Gaulle is reputed to have said. Despite the mordant wisdom most of us see in that statement, an alarming number of people refuse to follow his implicit advice. Many of us, particularly in America, the land of rugged individualism, see ourselves as crucial in the grand scheme of things, and are reluctant to leave the stage. That may explain the real insecurity behind the common belief in the immortality of the soul. Admittedly, roughly two-thirds of the way through my career, I started to see myself as experienced, reliable, professionally knowledgeable, and possessing good judgment: all the ingredients for an inflated sense of indispensability. As retirement approached, I felt more than...
    (CNN)A British teenager has staged a protest against climate change inside the Arctic Circle. In the world's most northerly climate strike, Mya-Rose Craig, a passionate ornithologist and nature, climate and equal rights campaigner, was photographed protesting on an ice floe at the Arctic ice edge, north of Svalbard, at 82.2° North earlier this week. The 18-year-old, who lives near the southwestern English city of Bristol, held up a placard saying "Youth Strike for Climate." She spent five hours on the ice, a spokesperson for environmental organization Greenpeace told CNN.Craig, who says on her Twitter page that she is the youngest person to have seen half the world's birds, arrived in the Arctic on board the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise as...
    By Natalie Thomas ABOARD 'ARCTIC SUNRISE' (Reuters) - Jailed in Russia in 2013 for trying to halt oil drilling in the Arctic, a disillusioned Paul Ruzycki switched to working on cargo ships for a while before the words of Greta Thunberg inspired him to return to his life as a climate activist.

    A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests an uptick in COVID-19 cases among young people could put older populations at higher risk of exposure to the virus, which has proven to be more deadly for those who are older or have underlying conditions. There has been a documented shift in the infected population since May, according to the CDC study, published Wednesday. Those under 40 years old went from accounting for about 40% of nationwide cases in May to 55% in July and 53% in August. In that time, the age of the average coronavirus case fell from 46 years old in May, to 37 years old in July and 38 years old in August,...

    LONDON – The British government says it may take part in a study that tries to deliberately infect volunteers who have been given an experimental vaccine against the coronavirus in an effort to more quickly determine if the vaccine works. The approach, called a challenge study, is risky but proponents think it may produce results faster than typical studies, which wait to see if volunteers who have been given an experimental treatment or a dummy version get sick. “We are working with partners to understand how we might collaborate on the potential development of a COVID-19 vaccine through human challenge studies,” the U.K. Department for Business, Enterprise and Industrial Strategy said in a prepared statement. “These discussions are...

    LAUSANNE, Switzerland — Swiss authorities ordered 2,500 students at an elite hospitality management school to quarantine themselves due to a coronavirus outbreak allegedly linked to off-campus partying, the latest back-to-school sign of higher education’s place in the pandemic. Authorities in Switzerland’s Vaud canton, or region, said all undergraduates at the Ecole Hoteliere de Lausanne, or the Lausanne Hospitality Management University in English, were told to quarantine at home both on and off campus because the virus already had spread too widely for a more limited order. “Significant outbreaks of infection have appeared at several levels of training, making impossible a more targeted closure than that involving 2,500 students,” the Vaud regional office said in a statement. “Until Sept. 28,...

    This article was originally published by Agate magazine. The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare many weaknesses in our food system. In the spring, with the sudden closure of restaurants, schools, and hotels, farmers were forced to plow under their vegetables, dump their milk, and cull animals even as some supermarket shelves were bare. Although Americans were eating at home more, big farms found it too expensive and time-consuming to switch to packaging products for retail sale. As we watched the supply chains break down and avoided restaurants, many of us scrambled to join a CSA (Community-Supported Agriculture) farm or to find locally produced meat. We found ourselves wondering, “Why don’t we automatically get carrots grown locally or milk from the...

    By CASEY SMITH, Associated Press/Report for America INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Sens. Mike Braun and Todd Young said Tuesday that they support the Senate taking a confirmation vote on a nominee to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before the November election. “I think it’s important that we do this prior to the election,” Braun said during a news conference. “(Republicans) do control the presidency and the Senate. And I think the majority of Hoosiers who elected me would be disappointed if we didn't do the vote."

    More than 513,000 Americans aged 0-18 have been infected by COVID-19. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Tuesday that Donald Trump was "telling people the truth" when he claimed at a rally the night before that "virtually nobody" had been affected by coronavirus. Trump made his remarks while discussing the effects of the virus on young people. "Below the age of 18," he claimed, "like, nobody" had been lost to the virus, attributing this to possibly "strong immune systems." "Take your hat off to the young, because they have a hell of an immune system. But it affects virtually nobody," he added, before calling for schools to reopen.
    Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany accused CNN’s Jim Acosta of taking President Trump out of context during Tuesday's White House press briefing. CNN’s senior White House correspondent asked McEnany about a partial quote President Trump said during an Ohio campaign rally on Monday when speaking about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    President Trump was speaking at a rally in Ohio on Monday evening when he said the coronavirus "affects virtually nobody." On Tuesday, the U.S. reached the grim milestone of 200,000 COVID-19 deaths. The United States has for many months had the highest number of infections and deaths in the world, with more than 6.8 million confirmed cases as of Tuesday, according to Johns Hopkins University data.  When he made the false claim about coronavirus, Mr. Trump was addressing a crowd at Toledo Express Airport in Swanton, Ohio — one of two campaign stops that day in the battleground state. The president criticized how he thinks Joe Biden would handle the pandemic and impending vaccine if he were to be elected president, claiming Biden would...

Tony Evers on Tuesday, coupled with the declaration of a public health emergency.

    The first question White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany fielded during Tuesday’s press conference was not about the Supreme Court fight, but rather about the milestone of 200,000 deaths from COVID-19 that the United States has now reached. CNN’s Jim Acosta began by asking: “What do you say to Americans who are outraged over this and blame this administration for so many lives lost in this country?” After McEnany responded by saying that the number of dead Americans could have reached two million by now, Acosta specifically brought up the president’s most recent attempt to downplay the severity of the coronavirus. At his Monday evening rally in Ohio, the president told supporters that the virus “really affects” elderly people with...
    CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta asked Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany to explain some controversial comments made by President Donald Trump Monday night during a political rally in Ohio that the coronavirus — which has killed 200,000 Americans and infected nearly 7 million — “affects virtually nobody.” “It affects elderly people, elderly people with heart problems, and other problems. If they have other problems, that’s what it really affects, that’s it,” Trump said. “You know, in some states thousands of people, nobody young. Below the age of 18, like nobody. They have a strong immune system. Who knows? Take your hat off to the young, because they have a hell of an immune system.” Acosta cited this before...
    Bradley Cortright September 22, 2020 0 Comments The nation’s top infectious disease expert is pushing back on President Donald Trump’s false claim that COVID-19 “affects virtually no one.”  Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was asked about Trump’s claim during an interview on CNN on Tuesday. He said, “It’s very disrespectful to me because I’m in my 70s … It isn’t just the elderly and those with underlying conditions. It can be serious in young people.” “Quantitatively, for sure, it’s much, much, much less serious as a group in young individuals,” he added. However, he admonished Americans to remember that COVID-19 poses a threat to elderly individuals and people at “any age” with...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci knocked down President Donald Trump’s claims about the coronavirus affecting only older people. The infectious disease expert apparently took umbrage to the president’s assurance to rallygoers Monday in Ohio that only “elderly people with heart problems and other problems” can get sick from the COVID-19 pandemic. “In some states, thousands of people — nobody young,” Trump told his supporters. “Below the age of 18, like, nobody. They have a strong immune system, who knows? Take your hat off to the young, because they have a hell of an immune system. But it affects virtually nobody. It’s an amazing thing.” Fauci appeared the following morning on CNN, where medical expert Sanjay Gupta took exception to the president’s remarks...
    It's Trump's latest lie about the coronavirus, which has ravaged the country and tanked the economy. Donald Trump said Monday night that the coronavirus "affects virtually nobody" — his latest lie about the virus that's to date killed more than 200,000 people in the United States, the most of any other country in the world. "Now we know it, it affects elderly people, elderly people with heart problems, other problems, if they have other problems, that's what it really affects," Trump said at a campaign rally in Ohio. "You know, in some states thousands of people — nobody young, below the age of 18, like nobody. They have a strong...
    President Donald Trump falsely claimed that the coronavirus affected “virtually nobody” at a campaign rally in Ohio, prompting the internet to point out that around 200,000 Americans have died because of the pandemic. Hide “Now we know it, it affects elderly people, elderly people with heart problems, and other problems. If they have other problems, that’s what it really affects, that’s it. You know, in some states, thousands of people—nobody young. Below the age of 18, like nobody,” the president told the crowd. “They have a strong immune system. Who knows? Take your hat off to the young, because they have a hell of an immune system. But it affects virtually nobody. It’s an amazing thing.” Hide The...
    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The North Hills School District has filed a lawsuit against Juul. According to the Tribune-Review, the district alleges that the e-cigarette maker purposely targeted its products to young people, forcing the district to reallocate resources to battle what the CDC is calling an ‘epidemic.’ Nine other complaints have been filed in Western Pennsylvania. The North Hills School District complaint includes claims for public nuisance, negligence, and racketeering.
    President Donald Trump told a rally crowd in Ohio that the coronavirus that has killed 200,000 Americans and infected nearly 7 million “affects virtually nobody.” On Monday night, Trump spoke before yet another packed and mostly-maskless crowd in Swanton, Ohio, where he promised to “end the pandemic” that has raged for months. He then went on his familiar and false riff about the effects of COVID-19 on young people — whom he has previously called “virtually immune” to the disease — but added a little something extra. “We now know the disease. We didn’t know it, now we know it,” Trump said, seconds before demonstrating he does not know it. “It affects elderly people, elderly people with heart problems...

Night Owls, a themed open thread, appears at Daily Kos seven days a week Alexis Goldstein at The New Republic writes—Canceling student debt will prevent irreversible wealth loss in younger Americans. But they’re not the only ones who would benefit: There’s a looming student debt cliff awaiting us in 2021. With America in the teeth of the Covid-19–enabled economic downturn, lawmakers suspended federal student loan payments for 80 percent of federal student loan borrowers. This measure, which President Donald Trump extended a few weeks ago, is set to expire on New Year’s Eve, which means...

    As Democrats continue to assert that President Donald Trump should not move forward with a Supreme Court nomination until after the 2020 election, the president said “losing an election has consequences.” “That means the other side gets to pick Supreme Court justices, judges, it’s a big deal,” he said Monday on “Fox & Friends.” on Monday. “The bottom line is we won the election, we have an obligation to do what’s right and act as quickly as possible,” Trump said. “It sets the tone.

    Here’s an activity I used to run with my middle-school students during our journalism unit: Someone would describe an event, real or imagined, and the rest of the class would collaborate to make editorial decisions around how the story should be covered. Whose story is it? I would ask them. What’s the context? What’s at stake? Most of the time, students would throw out a scandal from the lunchroom or the plot of an Avengers movie, and we’d spitball for five minutes, ten, until they eventually brought it to something like: Hours after the Empire committed genocide against the planet Alderaan, rebel pilot Luke Skywalker successfully destroyed the Death Star in a major blow to intergalactic tyranny.

    By George Morris, The Advocate BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — As a child, Myra Richardson says she was always involved in causes at school. When she was 17 and her hometown was roiled in racial tension, she couldn’t stay on the sidelines. Richardson and fellow high school students Raheejah Flowers and Jeanette Jackson planned and organized a peaceful, 8,000-person protest over the shooting death of Alton Sterling during a confrontation with two Baton Rouge Police officers in 2016. “Alton Sterling’s murder was a catalytic moment for me and transformative,” Richardson said. “I think I tapped into some of my innate talents, which were mobilizing people and getting people to empathize with situations they previously weren’t thinking about.” Richardson hasn’t stopped....

    Former first lady Michelle Obama took a swipe at the Trump White House this week in an episode of “The Michelle Obama Podcast” on Spotify. Obama claimed she and her husband, former President Barack Obama, faced too much pressure from their “community” to be able to replicate unspecified actions of the Trump administration. “When we were in the White House, we could’ve never gotten away with some of the stuff that’s going on now,” she said. “Not because of the public,” she added, “but our community wouldn’t have accepted that.

    New Jersey’s reopening plans are threatened, Gov. Phil Murphy said, because of “extreme knucklehead behavior” by young people who he said could be “substantially” spreading the coronavirus. Murphy specifically expressed fear over what he said could turn out to be a superspreader event staged by a group of YouTube pranksters at the popular “Jersey Shore" house in Seaside Heights, as well as a pop-up car show that attracted 2,500 people. If such behavior continues, he said, the state won’t be even “remotely close” to reopening bars – and could see a rebound in cases in its schools. Murphy repeatedly has warned young people since June that they are “not invincible.” “On Monday in Seaside Heights, extreme knucklehead behavior was on...

    A surprisingly high number of young Americans polled nationwide displayed profound ignorance about the Holocaust, with a sizable percentage even believing that Jewish people were responsible for it, according to the results of a survey released on Wednesday. In the first-ever survey of young people between 18 and 39 in all 50 states about the topic, the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany discovered that nearly two-thirds of those polled did not know that 6 million Jews were killed in the Holocaust. Nearly half could not name a single concentration camp or ghetto. Almost a quarter either did not believe the Holocaust happened, that it was exaggerated, or were unsure. About 12% had not heard about the Holocaust at...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – On Monday night, the Fridley City Council voted 4-1 to restrict the sale of flavored tobacco products and update the existing tobacco ordinance. Now, flavored tobacco products, including menthol, will be sold in adult-only tobacco stores. The council also voted to update the tobacco ordinance to meet state requirements that raise the tobacco sales age to 21. Flavored tobacco products are especially popular with young people; a study released in October of 2019 revealed a jump in the rate of teens vaping in Minnesota. Starting in 2017, youth tobacco use started trending upwards for the first time in 17 years, largely due to e-cigarette and flavored cigar use. “I would be much happier if the state would take...
    The mainstream media has spent months hyping the dangers of COVID-19. But let’s take a quick look at some numbers, shall we? For the record, the coronavirus COVID-19 has killed 0.058% of the U.S. population. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said last week that there have been 175,866 deaths “involving” COVID. Of those, 139,009 were 65 years old or older — 79% of the deaths. Add in Americans 55 to 64 years old and the elderly share of the fatalities rises to 91.7%. The percentage of deaths that are 34 years old and younger — 0.99%. To be clear, the virus is a danger — to older Americans and those with pre-existing conditions. The CDC said this...

    World-class universities are among America’s most treasured institutions. Unfortunately, several universities have recently announced their plans to shut down in response to new COVID-19 cases among students. That’s wrong: Universities should stay open, even when they see an increase in cases. Virtual learning is a poor substitute for the education and development that happen on campus. The students most at risk of falling behind from distance learning are those from lower- and middle-income families. Minority students are 50 percent less likely than others to return if colleges close campuses. We can’t afford a generation forever disadvantaged by higher-education institutions’ decisions to limit in-person classes. As President Trump has said repeatedly, the cure can’t be worse than the disease. Science tells...
    Paul Rudd plays the guitar in a mask PSA. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo/YouTube Paul Rudd recently starred in a PSA that was posted on Governor Cuomo's social media accounts reminding viewers to wear masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus. In the PSA, Rudd pretends to be a "young person," throwing around and deliberately butchering slang. Much of the slang that Rudd uses to pretend to be a "young person" is actually Black slang, demonstrating a tendency for Black culture to be appropriated and redefined as "internet culture." The advertisement paradoxically targets millennials while seemingly spoofing Gen Z teens, playing out as a tired iteration of the "hello fellow kids" meme.

    Minority children and young adults account for an overwhelming majority of coronavirus deaths among Americans under 21, a new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report reveals.  Although children and young people have not been hit as hard by he virus, disparities seen in older adults are even more exaggerated in the fatality risks of younger victims, the new report suggests.  Few under 21s killed by the virus were in perfect health, however. The CDC report found that 75 percent of the young people who died of the infection had at least one underlying health condition.  As children and young adults head back to K-12 schools and colleges, the findings, published Tuesday are reassuring for those in pristine health...
