Joshua Lipke, Owner, Leaning Cask Brewing Company told KDKA, “If it is actually a thing that’s out there right now, the only thing that I can attribute it to is the fact that we’ve...

    By MICHAEL R. BLOOD | The Associated Press SACRAMENTO — Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Wednesday the state would keep in place a planned jump in the state’s minimum wage to $14 an hour next year for larger businesses, saying it would help hard hit lower-income workers even as many companies struggle to survive amid the coronavirus crisis. The Democratic governor had the authority to suspend the scheduled increase given the state’s troubled economy. Since mid-March, California has processed nearly 6.8 million claims for unemployment as many businesses, especially restaurants and retailers, have been idled or forced to cut back operations while contending with government rules intended to limit the spread of the virus. For hourly workers, Newsom said the increase...

    The fixed 30-year home mortgage interest rate has dropped below 3 per cent for the first time, reported Freddy Mac Thursday, adding that the historic drop has led to an increase in homebuyer demand during the coronavirus outbreak.

    Finland, Sweden and Norway have noted unusual low levels of human radioactivity in recent days, a harmless increase for humans who, according to a Dutch institute, have their source in western Russia, while a French NGO has ruled out a track leading to Latvia.

    Coronavirus — Surviving covid-19, a second chance 4:51 . – Despite warnings from public health officials, new research suggests that Black Lives Matter protests across the country have not led to a rapid increase in coronavirus cases. A new study, released this month by the National Bureau of Economic Research, used data from protests in more than 300 of the largest cities in the United States and found no evidence that coronavirus cases increased in the weeks after the start of the protests. In fact, the researchers found that social distancing behaviors actually increased after the protests, as people tried to avoid them entirely.

With 2,926 cases in the past 24 hours, Florida surpassed 100,000 coronavirus-infected, amid growing concern that collides with the authorities’ firm stance against any measure that halts economic activity. This increase on Monday follows a week in which the disease count increased by more than 24,500 cases, when it is assumed that the danger had already subsided after the quarantine and Florida was on its way to the third phase of the reopening....

Fire and EMS spokesman Vito Maggiolo said with pools are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, more people are going to the river for a swim.

    In normal times, no one would feel the need to point out the total absurdity of a movement called “Defund the Police.” The insanity of such a concept would be self-evident to anyone possessing the faculty of reason. The move to cut funding for police departments around the nation is motivated by the brutal and clearly unjustified May 25 killing of George Floyd, a black man who died when a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes. Floyd was handcuffed on the ground, not resisting arrest and posing no threat to the four officers who arrested him for allegedly committing a minor crime – passing a counterfeit $20 bill. All four officers have since fired and...
