    The Trump administration’s 'testing czar' says it’s 'time to move on' from hydoxychloroquine after President Donald Trump returned to tout the drug as a possible cure for COVID-19. Brett Giroir, the nation’s assistant secretary for health who coordinates the administration’s coronavirus testing, doubled down on Sunday that there is no evidence the antimalarial drug is an 'effective' treatment for virus. Giroir debunked new theories supporting hydroxychloroquine saying scientific experts agree it’s not a solution to the respiratory disease that has infected more than 4.6million and killed over 154,000. 'Most physicians and prescribers are evidence-based and they’re not influenced by whatever is on Twitter or anything else. And the evidence just does not show hydroxychloroquine is effective right now,' he said...
    Dr. Deborah Birx said Sunday that the COVID-19 outbreak is not under control in the U.S. because Americans "are on the move.”  When asked about why the U.S. has not been able to stop the coronavirus spread, Birx said on CNN’s “State of the Union” that she’s learned through studying epidemics that health officials need to spread a "tailored" message “on the ground.” The White House coronavirus task force coordinator said she’s seen through recent travel to 14 states that Americans “on the move.” “I can tell you across America right now people are on the move,” she said. “And so all of our discussions about social distancing and decreasing gatherings to under 10 – as I traveled around the country, I saw all...

    by Briony Horgan, Purdue University and Melissa Rice, Western Washington University This summer, NASA is taking the next giant leap in the search for signs of life beyond Earth. On July 30, if the weather in Florida holds, NASA will launch its most sophisticated and ambitious spacecraft to Mars: the aptly named Perseverance rover. This will be the third launch to Mars this month, following the UAE’s Hope and China’s Tianwen-1 spacecraft. Perseverance will look for signatures of ancient life preserved in Mars rocks. And, for the first time, this rover will collect rock samples that will be brought back to Earth, where they can be scrutinized in laboratories for decades to come. Mars is one the few destinations in...

    Texas students will still have to take the STAAR test next year, but fifth and eighth grade students will be able to move on to the next grade even if they fail, Gov. Greg Abbott announced Monday. State education officials announced earlier this summer that third through 12th grade students would take the state standardized exams, or STAAR, this upcoming academic year. Normally, fifth and eighth graders must pass the STAAR in order to move on to the next grade, or else they must retake it later that year or over the summer. But Abbott said that next spring, the fifth and eighth grade math and reading exams would only be administered one time, in May. Texas education officials told...

    As Daily Kos previously covered, Disney World reopened its Orlando, Florida, location on July 11. The Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom parks reopened that Saturday, with Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios a few days behind on July 15. Mind you, Florida’s coronavirus cases have been surging. Just today, the state reported more than 10,000 new cases. Even still, Disney’s Florida location reopened with additional safety measures: limiting how many people can enter the park at once, for example; using apps to order food and drinks; and canceling crowd-heavy events, like parades and fireworks. What else? All guests over 2 years old and employees are instructed to wear masks while in the park, with some exceptions. And it seems that those exceptions had to be tightened up...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Comparing herself to a mother who won’t simply turn the car around if her kids are acting up, but one who will make them walk home, Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Wednesday warned the city is “dangerously close” to possibly going back to Phase 3 of reopening, following a recent rise in new COVID-19 cases, particularly among young people. “The last thing I want to do is have to take steps back. I certainly don’t want to be like other places in the country where we’re shutting down commerce and business,” she said. “If we continue to see this uptick in cases, we’re going to have no choice but to go back into Phase 3. That means shutting...
    Ever pull that loose thread on your sweater? The whole thing unravels. That’s the state of America today, with the Politically Correct Police pulling on every thread in hopes of unraveling, well, everything. This summer, they came — again — for the Washington Redskins, and this time they succeeded. The NFL team on Monday announced that it will cave to pressure from the Left, which claims the Redskins name is offensive to American Indians, and change their 87-year-old team name and logo. But here are a couple of facts (not that those matter nowadays). A poll in May found that nine in 10 American Indians are not offended by the name, The Washington Post reported. And the son of Walter “Blackie”...
    The 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season seems like it has been Kevin Harvick’s one-man show. The 44-year old California local ruled the principal half of the racing season. He proceeded with his dash of solid completions on Sunday subsequent to taking his third win at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Kevin Harvick guaranteed his second consecutive NASCAR Brickyard 400 on Sunday with a wonderful exertion. Subsequent to exchanging intense overtakes with Denny Hamlin all throughout the race, it was evident that Harvick would miss the mark. However, Hamlin crashed seven laps before the finish, permitting Harvick to win the race. As reported by NBC, Kevin said: “We knew (Denny Hamlin) was gonna be really close on tires and (crew chief) Rodney...

    by Pallavi Banerjee, University of Calgary and Pratim Sengupta, University of Calgary On June 22, U.S. President Donald Trump ordered the temporary suspension of new work visas for temporary workers, including highly skilled workers (H-1B visa). Trump’s decision may appear to be based on his claim to protect American jobs, but the realities are more disturbing. Trump’s actions are in line with his racist, anti-immigrant, white nationalist agenda. While this move will surely solidify Trump’s support among his voting base, it will likely come at the expense of the U.S. economy and STEM research. Most governments announced that their border crossings would only be allowed for citizens and permanents residents soon after the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global...

    The Trump campaign has reportedly scaled up precautions to protect the president after several campaign staffers tested positive for the coronavirus, several campaign officials told CNN. The president has held two indoor campaign rallies in Arizona and Oklahoma in the past week, a move that goes against guidance from public health officials. Attendees at both the Arizona and Oklahoma events were required to agree that they would not sue the hosts if they contracted the coronavirus following the event. Campaign officials told CNN that although the president does not wear a mask in public, he has voiced increasing concern about contracting the coronavirus, and has insisted on upping precautionary measures in the White House and at campaign events.

    CITY HALL — Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s naming of an urban planner to guide her environmental agenda is receiving positive reactions from activists and community leaders. Nevertheless, they remain wary about whether the city’s new chief sustainability officer will be given enough power and resources to make meaningful change. As a candidate, Lightfoot promised to revive a fully operational city department of environment to tackle pollution after former Mayor Rahm Emanuel disbanded the unit to cut costs. While Emanuel said environmental enforcement would be dispersed to other city agencies, a 2019 Better Government Association investigation found inspections and citations plummeted during his tenure. Late last year, amid a massive budget deficit, Lightfoot scaled back her robust environmental promises. Instead, she created a...
    By MARK SCOLFORO and MARC LEVY, Associated Press HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Bills to give police departments information about an applicant’s disciplinary past and to train officers in how to interact with people of different racial and ethic backgrounds were approved unanimously on Wednesday by the state House. The House voted after an emotional debate to require thorough background checks and to mandate that an applicant’s former department must provide information on the officer’s job history, including disciplinary actions. It directs the Municipal Police Officers Education and Training Commission to maintain an electronic database with details about why officers have left employment. Agencies would have to check the database before hiring an officer. Philadelphia Democratic state Rep. Chris Rabb called...

    Elon Musk has told Johnny Depp and Amber Heard to 'bury the hatchet and move on' as he denied having a threesome with her and Cara Delevingne. An explosive new testimony claimed Musk and Delevingne had been involved in the secret relationship in late 2016.

    The District of Columbia is set to loosen even more coronavirus-related restrictions beginning next week, mayor Muriel Bowser (D) announced Wednesday. Bowser said the city has seen 13 days of sustained decrease in community spread of the virus, and if the infection rate continues to decline, new guidelines for phase 2 could take effect as early as June 19.  A final announcement will come on Friday, Bowser said.

    JERUSALEM–Two decades of expanding operations against what United States Special Operations Command called a “global insurgency of state and non-state actors” has led to fatigue at home and questions abroad about U.S. strategy. The latest Trump administration deal with the Taliban, challenges to the U.S. role in Syria and Iraq, and a potential reduction of forces in Africa point to a global trend in how the U.S. will deal with counter-insurgency in the future.  What we’re looking at is a global drawdown in U.S. forces committed to counter-terrorist operations at the same time President Donald Trump is demanding other countries, including NATO allies, do more. The idea is for the U.S. to focus on using technology, such as drones,...

    EAST SIDE — An East Side alderman is calling on the state to suspend its permit reviews for General Iron and other applicants during the coronavirus pandemic, saying residents have not had enough opportunity to share feedback. The pandemic has created an “inability to provide real community input” on permit applications like General Iron’s, Ald. Susan Sadlowski Garza (10th) wrote in a letter. She wants to pause all environmental permits and licenses until “meaningful public engagement on these facilities can take place.” Metal scrapper General Iron plans to move from Lincoln Park to 11600 S. Burley Ave. on the city’s Southeast Side by the end of the year. Before the move, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency must grant an...
    President Donald Trump announced late Friday evening that his comeback rally scheduled for June 19 in Tulsa, Oklahoma will be moved to June 20 out of respect for people who suggested the rally would detract from the importance of Juneteenth, a holiday commemorating the Emancipation Proclamation and end of slavery in Texas.  “We had previously scheduled our #MAGA Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for June 19th – a big deal,” said Trump. “Unfortunately, however, this would fall on the Juneteenth Holiday. Many of my African American friends and supporters have reached out to suggest that we consider changing the date out of respect for this holiday, and in observance of this important occasion and all that it represents. ”I have therefore...
    George Floyd was killed in Minneapolis last week when a police officer used brutally excessive force to arrest him. It was the latest in a string of high-profile cases nationwide in which citizens, most of them African Americans, died from reckless police force. Once again, protests over police brutality turned violent and rioting ensued. The U.S. is torn apart over the national mass quarantine. Liberal blue states accused red restart states of recklessly endangering national health by allowing their populations to go back to work before the virus has left. Red states countered that blue states were hypocritical in wanting federal money to subsidize their locked-down residents while expecting other states to generate needed federal revenue. They also contended that...
    Cheers to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson for offering millions of Hong Kongers visas and a path to UK citizenship if Beijing goes ahead with its horrible new “security law.” The mainland is inflicting the legislation on the city without going through Hong Kong’s own legislature, in blatant defiance of the 1997 handover, which guaranteed the city’s autonomy until 2047. The law will effectively criminalize dissent and empower the mainland’s security forces to operate openly in the city. It is, as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Congress, the “death knell” for liberty and democracy in Hong Kong. London is in no position to stop the massive treaty violation. But Johnson’s riposte will still wound: If the law goes ahead,...

    In recent days, all America has watched in horror as violent rioters have assaulted bystanders, smashed store windows and set vehicles ablaze in their sick quest to destroy all sense of peace and safety in our nation’s cities. These criminals have killed several of our fellow citizens and injured scores of others. When you look in their faces and listen to their verbal tirades, you detect a cocky and cruel disregard for human life among these marauding miscreants. You might recall seeing that same smirking snarl somewhere else — in the expression of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who has been charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. That’s because the menaces terrorizing our cities right now share much in common with the bad cops they claim...
    JOHANNESBURG (AP) - As Minneapolis burns over the police killing of George Floyd and shock and disappointment in Africa grow, some U.S. embassies on the continent have taken the unusual step of issuing critical statements, saying no one is above the law. The statements came as the head of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, condemned the “murder” of Floyd and said Friday the continental body rejects the “continuing discriminatory practices against black citizens of the USA.” Africa has not seen the kind of protests over Floyd’s killing that have erupted across the United States, but many Africans have expressed disgust and dismay, openly wondering when the U.S. will ever get it right.
