    A Virginia mayor is under fire and being asked to resign after a controversial Facebook post in which he opined that Joe Biden “just announced Aunt Jemima” as his running mate. Read More: Joe Biden introduces VP pick Kamala Harris at 1st campaign event According to NBC News, over the weekend Mayor Barry Presgraves of Luray, Virginia raised brows after he posted the racially charged comparison to his Facebook page. It’s been reported that members of the Luray Town Council and other residents were swift with their condemnation forcing him to take down the post that very same weekend. The latest census data shows that the small town – located about 90 miles west of Washington, D.C. – has...
    When you and your partner constantly argue about a particular issue and can't seem to resolve it, it can feel defeating. Understanding that these relationship standoffs and stalemates have more to do with how you fight than what you are fighting about can help, renowned therapist Esther Perel said. According to Perel, both partners have to understand the emotions and memories a particular fight evoked in the other, rather than viewing it as a battle to win or lose. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. When you and your partner can't seem to agree on a particular topic, whether it's who does the chores or how you discipline your children, it can become a lasting point of...
    (CNN)Covid-19 numbers are bad and getting worse. At the time of writing, there have been over 20.5 million cases and nearly 750,000 deaths worldwide. In the United States alone there are over 5 million cases, and the pandemic has now claimed more lives than those lost in the nearly two decades of the Vietnam War. Yet I continue to see headlines like "Young Americans Partying Hard and Spreading Covid-19 Quickly," "Parents cooperating with health officials after New Jersey teen party leads to Covid-19 cluster" and "300 teens exposed to COVID-19 at big party near Austin." As I am writing this, there are throngs of people at my apartment building's pool -- no masks and no physical distancing. Annika OlsonThis wasn't...

    I once committed the faux pas, at a gathering for business executives to discuss workforce investment, of proposing legislation that would require them to invest more in their workforces. “This group should not be in the business of changing the behavior of our businesses,” retorted an indignant participant unironically. The many comments preceding mine had suggested new public programs, partnerships, and tax credits that might reward employers for changing their behavior. Those were welcome. The prospect of a constraint, however, was heresy. Constraints are precisely what businesses need. They can come in many forms. Some are legal—requirements for what a firm must do and prohibitions on what it must not. Some are economic—the result of competitive pressures and the demands...
    On July 20 presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden spoke to Emgage Action, a Muslim advocacy group, in support of their “Million Muslim Votes” summit to boost voter turnout in Muslim communities. During his address he said, a “Hadith from the Prophet Muhammad instructs, ‘Whomever among you sees wrong, let him change it with his hand. If he is not able, then with his tongue. If he is not able, then with his heart.” (A Hadith is an authoritative saying by the Prophet Muhammad). As a former Muslim who wishes to see genuine reforms take place within Islam to make it a more tolerant and humane faith, it concerns me that Biden does not appear to realize the harmful significance of...
    Karrin Anderson August 12, 2020 12:22PM (UTC) This article was originally published on The Conversation. Joe Biden's promise to name a woman running mate has prompted familiar debates about gender and power. Are these potential vice presidents supposed to be presidential lackeys or understudies to the leader of the free world? Should they actively seek the position, or be reluctant nominees bound by duty? : After Sen. Kamala Harris' name emerged as a short-list favorite, CNBC reported that some Biden allies and donors "initiated a campaign against Harris," arguing that she was "too ambitious" and would be "solely focused on eventually becoming president." Claiming that people who want to be president make bad vice presidents might seem ill-conceived if...
    Alex Wong/Getty Images. President Donald Trump raged at his political foes from the intelligence community on Tuesday as he criticized former White House National Security Adviser John Bolton. John Bolton, one of the dumbest people I’ve met in government and sadly, I’ve met plenty, states often that I respected, and even trusted, Vladimir Putin of Russia more than those in our Intelligence Agencies. While of course that is not true, if the first people you met from so called American Intelligence were Dirty Cops who have now proven to be sleazebags at the highest level like James Comey, proven liar James Clapper, & perhaps the lowest of them all, Wacko John Brennan who headed the CIA, you could perhaps understand...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Philadelphia City Council Committee is holding an emergency hearing over the next two days to discuss the surge in gun violence across the city. The meeting will be virtual, so anyone can attend. Organizers say in order to fix the gun violence problem, they have to get to the root of it. “Anything that you know how to do you need to be teaching to a young buck,” said Solomon Jones with ManUpPHL. There was a call to action to reverse the trend of violence in Philadelphia on Monday afternoon. “Day in and day out African American young men and women, and pregnant women are shot and murdered,” Councilman Kenyatta Johnson said. “We go about our...
    Nick Saban, Alabama Crimson Tide. (Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images) With Power-5 conferences under pressure to decide whether or not they’ll have a fall college football season, Nick Saban is preaching patience Like most college football coaches, Saban wants to play a 2020 season for the sake of his players. The Alabama Crimson Tide are among the favorites in the SEC West, but if there is no season to play, then none of that matters. Saban, never afraid to speak him mind, thinks the SEC should take their time in making a final call on the fall campaign. The conference initially opted to wait until students returned to campus, especially after commissioner Greg Sankey delayed the start of the conference...
    SAN ANTONIO – Southwest Research Institute has received a $1 million contract from the U.S. Air Force, with Sabreliner Aviation, to continue maintaining an aging fleet of military aircraft.

    Alex Henderson August 9, 2020 4:30PM (UTC) This article originally appeared on AlterNet. President Donald Trump, recalling the law-and-order themes that President Richard Nixon and segregationist George Wallace used in their 1968 presidential campaigns, has been trying to frighten suburbanites into voting for him. In one of his tweets, Trump claimed that if former Vice President Joe Biden is elected president, he will use "low-income housing" to destroy suburbia as we know it. When Trump mentions "low-income housing," that's his way of warning white suburbanites that unless they want to see an influx of new African-American and Latino neighbors, they had better reelect him. But as the Rev. Al Sharpton has pointed out, Trump's claims about suburbia are not only blatantly racist —...
    Edward Enninful has denied criticism of Meghan Markle was racist as he suggested it 'took a minute' for the Duchess to 'understand the rules' of the royal institution. The editor-in-chief of British Vogue, 47, and the Duchess of Sussex, 39, collaborated on September 2019's special 'Forces for Change' edition, which featured a grid of 15 'incredible' women on the cover with articles commissioned by the royal inside.  Speaking in an interview with Sky News, Edward said he wouldn't put criticism of the royal 'down to racism', explaining: 'The Duchess of Sussex is a brave woman. I feel that it wasn't. Parts of it were probably racism, but it was more of an institution.' He added that while criticism was 'harsh',...

    Individual liberty, respect for private property and other freedoms are what made America great, but the new wave of progressivism threatens to cancel that history, Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., told Newsmax TV. "I give tours of the Capitol in the evening, and I talk about the great constitutional principles that are symbolized in our United States Capitol," Buck told Thursdays "Spicer & Co." "One of the movements thats going on at this point in time in our history is to try to deny our history, to try to cancel our culture," Buck said. "It is so important for Americans to try to understand what made us great, and why we need to make sure that before we move on before...
    This includes the idea that data and attention are the “new digital currency” — not just dollars. What we ‘spend’ on free services like Gmail and Instagram is our time and personal information, which data-driven firms commoditize as ad revenue. And the ‘rates’ we’re being charged — the endless infringements on our privacy — are rising. At yesterday’s five-and-a-half hour subcommittee hearing, there was partisan questioning on alleged bias towards conservatives, chatter about competing with China and occasional discussion of anti-competitive behavior. But Ghosh felt enough lawmakers had begun to grasp the notion of a new digital economy. “I think what is clear is that Congress does have some understanding of the business models that are at play here,” Ghosh...
    NBA star LeBron James is now focusing his increasingly political activism to allow felons in Florida regain voting rights. James, a Los Angeles Laker formerly with the Miami Heat, dumped $100,000 into the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition on Friday through his “More Than A Vote” organization, which is comprised of black athletes and artists working to combat “systemic, racist voter suppression,” and promoted the cause via his large social media platform. “This is a fight about their constitutional right to vote being denied,” James tweeted out, linking to the coalition.

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Indians, the Triple A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates, said Tuesday it will form a committee to consider changing the team’s longtime name. Team officials issued a two-paragraph statement that said the name is derived from Indiana, which translates to “land of the Indians,” and Indianapolis, which the team said translates to “city of Indians.” “We understand that our team name has not been endorsed by some but trust they understand the historic and respectful context in which it has been used over the years,” the statement read. “We are committed to engage, listen and exchange ideas.” The team has played in Indianapolis since 1902. Team officials said they will gather input from the community....
    Tree death Further research is needed to understand how changes in forests relate to future prospects for carbon storage. Many studies have examined the effects of photosynthesis on storage, but another critical piece of the puzzle is understanding the rates and causes of tree death on a large scale. “Until now, getting a global picture of this has been surprisingly difficult,” says Dr. Pugh. This is in part because trees can live hundreds of years, and even if death can be observed, the cause is often unclear, he says. If you can get that information for a tree, you need to make thousands of observations to understand trends. “In the same way, we know how long certain tree species...

The following is an excerpt: Esteemed Business Leaders — I write to you today as one who loves New York City, as one who loves the United States of America, to plead with you to accelerate the return date of your New York office personnel.

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the state is “going to be fine,” even though it is experiencing a surge of coronavirus cases.

    (CBSLA)- The Lakers played their first scrimmage of the NBA’s planned restart on Thursday night against the Dallas Mavericks. While the Lakers fell 108-104, the result on the floor didn’t matter nearly as much as LeBron James’ media availability afterwards. James took time to speak out about racial and social injustice, the death of Breonna Taylor and Black Lives Matter in his post game interview. First, he lamented the fact that the police officers who were involved in Taylor’s death have yet to be arrested. “The same energy we had on the floor is the same energy we have toward having justice for Breonna Taylor and her family,” said James. “It’s unfortunate.

    Two years ago, when Kanye West suddenly fired his manager and lawyer and professed his love for 'my brother' Donald Trump, his wife Kim Kardashian lashed out at the media for 'trying to demonize my husband.' In an angry series of tweets, she raged that the media's 'commentary on Kanye being erratic and disturbing' is 'actually scary'. She added: 'So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair.

    (CNN)Getting old is inevitable, but scientists at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) may be one step closer to being able to delay the aging process. A team of scientists studied aging in yeast -- chosen because its cells are easily manipulated -- to try and understand if different cells age at the same rate, and for the same reason.What they found was intriguing. Even cells made of the same genetic materials and within the same environment aged in "strikingly distinct ways," according to the scientists, who published their findings in the journal Science. Venus has crown-shaped hotspots that form its own Ring of FireAbout half of the yeast cells aged because of a gradual decline in the nucleolus,...

    (CNN)A seeming lack of considerable outrage from Black people over recent high-profile, anti-Semitic controversies stems from the desire to not be accused of "undermining and undercutting" the current racial justice movement, journalist Jemele Hill said."There are people who give no care about the Jewish culture, who are using DeSean Jackson, Stephen Jackson and some of the entertainers that Kareem Abdul-Jabbar mentioned as a way to undermine and try to eat at the credibility of the people who are out there fighting for justice," Hill, a staff writer at The Atlantic told CNN's Don Lemon on Thursday.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci said on Wednesday he did not understand the effort by some in the White House to discredit him and believes it was a big mistake. "You know, it is a bit bizarre. I don't really fully understand it," Fauci said in an interview with The Atlantic. "I think if you talk to reasonable people in the White House they realize that was a major mistake on their part because it doesn't do anything but reflect poorly on them. And I don't think that was their intention." (Reporting by Doina Chiacu; Editing by Steve Orlofsky) Copyright 2020 Thomson Reuters.
    LONG ISLAND, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – There’s a push on Long Island to uncover and learn from history that deliberately excluded people of color from the first suburbs. Restrictions were written into some of the earliest property deeds and still exist today, CBS2’s Carolyn Gusoff reported Monday. Levittown, the nation’s first suburb, was built for returning soldiers after World War II, but only for white soldiers. The roots of racism are buried in the deeds. “The tenant agrees not to permit the premises to be used or occupied by any other persons than members of the Caucasian race,” said Nassau County legislator Carrie Solages, reading from a 1948 lease. Levittown wasn’t the only place with restrictive covenants dating back to the...

Some states and cities have made wearing a mask a requirement in certain situations and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has advised that everyone "should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public."And as protests over racism and police brutality continue nationwide, Adams again raised his concern over mask wearing and...
    Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin accused the Republican Party of being a cult of President Donald Trump to the point they are denying the extent of the coronavirus pandemic to fit the president’s narrative. Host Joy Reid said, “Jennifer, I have to go to you, and I apologize to make you have to answer for the Republican Party, but you are my only former Republican that I know of guests here. Can you explain this to me because I have never understood why you would run for office and want to be a governor, be a public servant and then essentially condemn your own constituents to sickness and maybe death?

    SEATTLE (AP) — COVID-19 isn’t going away soon, so people need to learn to make protecting each other’s health part of daily life, King County’s top public health official said Friday. “It’s just critical that, as a community, we understand the long-term nature of COVID-19,” Dr. Jeff Duchin, health officer for Public Health – Seattle & King County, said at a news conference. “None of us asked for this, none of us wanted this.

    Michael Rapaport forged a career from slipping in and out of different people’s skins. He’s played a Southern mobster on “Justified,” a boorish man-child in “Beautiful Girls” and the father of an autistic teen in “Atypical.” His latest role? Political pundit.

    In the summer of 2016, 100 teenage girls in the Salinas Valley slipped silicone bracelets onto their wrists and kept them there for a week. Around the same time, 92 preschoolers in Oregon accessorized the same way. The bands also found their way onto the wrists of farmworkers in Peru as well as Houston residents working to rebuild after Hurricane Harvey. Aside from the color, the wristbands looked like the yellow Livestrong bracelets popularized by cyclist Lance Armstrong in the early 2000s. But this was not some fashion trend. The wristbands were research tools whose porous silicone made them ideal for soaking up chemicals in their surroundings. All were worn as part of a growing effort to understand what’s present...

    Scenes of President Donald Trump proclaiming himself the “president of law and order,” urging the deployment of the military to “dominate the streets,” and then having his path violently cleared of peaceful protesters so that he could hold a Bible in an awkward photo op have resurfaced the perennial question: How can “Bible-believing” white evangelicals condone the violence, racism, and cruelty at the heart of the president and his administration?   The apparent disconnect between theological beliefs and political allegiances invites charges of hypocrisy, but evangelicals themselves are able to hold in tension these conflicting values because for many, evangelicalism is first and foremost a cultural identity. Being evangelical means listening to Christian radio, reading Christian books, and purchasing Christian products...
