Ron DeSantis’ administration. The state will provide test kits free of charge so providers, which range from community-based group homes to institutions for people with disabilities, can test employees in an increased effort to keep the virus from spreading further in the residential facilities. Jim DeBeaugrine, interim chief executive officer of The Arc of Florida, said Tuesday his association had to “work” the DeSantis administration to get the change, explaining that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities are...

    Basketball is back, and that means it’s time for a special season restart edition of Sporting News’ NBA Power Rankings. Since the remaining 22 teams will be playing at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla., why not add a little Disney-Pixar twist to the list?

    Indianapolis Colts quarterback Chad Kelly thinks he’s the second fastest passer in the league. Kelly, who was a star at Ole Miss, tweeted, “Beside @Lj_era8, I’m faster than every quarterback in the NFL, race me!” (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Beside @Lj_era8 , I’m faster than every quarterback in the NFL, race me ! — Chad Kelly (@Chadkelly_6) July 18, 2020 Chad Kelly is at his best when he’s being incredibly cocky.

    REAL MADRID secured their 34th LaLiga title on Thursday night and Karim Benzema is the man they have to thank the most. While Los Blancos are traditionally an attacking side packed with star power, the Frenchman has been their only consistent goal-getting force. 2Benzema once again bagged a brace as Villarreal were swept asideCredit: Getty Images - Getty The 32-year-old has so far enjoyed his joint-second best season in the Spanish top-flight with 21 goals from 36 games. Real may be used to past heroes such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Raul beating that tally, but no other forward comes close to Benzema this season. In fact, he has four more league goals than every other Madrid forward combined. Vinicius Junior...
    ZINEDINE ZIDANE is on course to become Real Madrid's most-successful ever manager.

It was also the club's 34th LaLiga title, record haul. With the victory, Zidane has now won 11 trophies in just 209 matches in charge. That's the equivalent of a piece of silverware every 19 games - or half a domestic season. Zidane has now won LaLiga twice,...
    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has criticized President Donald Trump's administration over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic during a videochat with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the leading U.S. expert on infectious diseases. Speaking with Fauci in a Facebook live video on Thursday, Zuckerberg said some outbreaks of coronavirus were 'avoidable' and criticized the administration for 'calling into question' whether people should wear masks. 'Our government, and this administration, have been significantly less effective in handling this,' Zuckerberg said, comparing the recent surge in U.S. cases to other countries that have seen falling new cases. 'You know, I was certainly sympathetic early on when it was clear that there would be some outbreaks no matter how well we handle this,' Zuckerberg said. Facebook...
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri school districts will be allowed to have students attend every other day and learn remotely on alternating days, helping schools avoid fund penalties related to attendance. The State Board of Education passed two emergency rules Tuesday establishing hybrid instructions models paving the way for districts to reopen schools, according to KCUR-FM. Deputy Education Commissioner Kari Monsees said the new rules will allow schools to build on the contingency plans they already have for snow days and other short-term school closures. School districts can either have students attend class every other day or have one group of students attend in the morning and another in the afternoon. By dividing students into two groups to attend...
    One night, I was thinking about how weird it was to wander the empty streets during the pandemic, which made me think about 1984 post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie Night of the Comet, which made me think of other movies that use “Night of the” in the title. Then some guy on Twitter said I should rank them. I said I would. This was a foolish choice. There are a lot of movies that use “Night of the” in the title, even if you cut out short films and TV movies. But, hey, I’m in lockdown. This brings us here: a ranking of every single movie that starts with “Night of the,” from worst to best. Horror classics rub shoulders with serious...
    A young pro surfer was held captive on a squalid houseboat and raped every night for two months after she was kidnapped in India. Carmen Greentree was just 22 when she took time out from surfing to study under the Dalai Lama in the Himalayas in May 2004. After saying goodbye to her parents in Sydney, she touched down in New Delhi and fell victim to scammers posing as government tourism operators. Soon she was forced to sleep in a dingy bedroom on board where she was raped dozens of times and beaten whenever she asked to leave.  'I didn't think I was ever getting off that boat, I thought I would die there one way or another,' she told...
    RABAT, Morocco (AP) — Moroccans are re-experiencing a taste of the life before. In newly opened public spaces, every sip of coffee in a cafe, every dip in a river with friends, every moment of outdoor intimacy is savored. In the capital Rabat, people welcomed the end of more than three months of virus lockdown starting Thursday with the joy of a religious holiday. They met friends, planned days at the beach, and visited relatives. The pandemic left its scars on Morocco’s economy and Moroccans’ well-being, however, that will take a long time to heal. “Coronavirus is the least of my worries,” says Mohammed Tighiri, a waiter in the Best Coffee café in the city center, his mask resting...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Baseball is coming back, but it’ll look very different in more ways than just no fans. After more than six weeks of negotiations, the plan to resume baseball is in place. Each team will begin their spring training at their home ballparks beginning July 1, with a 60-game season expected to start on July 23 or 24, CBS2’s Steve Overmyer reported Wednesday. The format will be very regionalized. The Yankees and Mets, for example, will play 40 games against division rivals and 20 interleague games against regional teams, meaning the Bombers will play the NL East and the Amazins’ the AL East. There will be many on-field changes, including: Universal DH. The National League will...
    Nick Saban, Alabama Crimson Tide. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images) The Crimson Tide’s active AP Poll streak under Nick Saban is something to marvel. In 2019, Alabama found itself on the outside of the College Football Playoff looking in, surely a strange feeling given the annual championship expectations the Crimson Tide face under Nick Saban’s legendary leadership. The Tide still managed to go 11-2 with a No. 8 finish in the AP Poll last season, however, which is nothing to sneeze at. And a closer look at just how long they’ve been a mainstay of AP voting reveals the extent to which the rest of the FBS is still ultimately looking up at Bama.
    NBA teams will be tested every other day for the coronavirus beginning June 23 as the league prepares to resume the season, according to multiple reports. The league reportedly sent a memo to teams on Saturday, informing them that players and essential team personnel who will be involved in the restarted season will take both a COVID-19 test and an antibody test that day. The NBA plans to resume play on July 30 with 22 teams that have a chance of making the playoffs at Walt Disney World near Orlando, Fla. The season was halted on March 11 because of the coronavirus. With the worst record in the NBA, the 15-50 Golden State Warriors will not participate in...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio on Wednesday suggested blocking off every other seat on subways and buses to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Hizzoner floated the idea while speaking about keeping the public safe on public transportation when New York City reopens Monday. “It is crucial that every other seat be blocked off,” de Blasio said at his daily coronavirus press briefing. He also suggested markings along subway and bus platforms to show where people should stand in line with social distancing rules. The MTA has installed hand sanitizer dispensers at some subway stations ahead of the city reopening — though not all were operable. Face masks will also be given out, with the city pledging one million of them....
