    (CNN)Everyone seems to agree the US debt ceiling should be raised to pay for tax cuts and spending the government has already approved -- and to avoid the economic calamity that would likely result from a US default.But Congress is tied up in knots. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who wants to use this issue to catapult himself back into the majority in 2022, offered a two-month reprieve Wednesday. He'll allow Democrats to set a new debt limit to pay US bills until December. But that's hardly a solution since the debt scare would be back shortly. Read more here.Republicans see a political advantage in standing in the way of raising the debt limit and are trying, somewhat disingenuously, to make a political point. Democrats have stubbornly rejected the one parliamentary avenue available to them.It's a totally normal snafu, except the stakes are the full faith and credit of the US and the stability of the US economy.Read MoreThere are a growing number of creative solutions being thrown around as the parties stick to their guns and tempt economic calamity....
    On the tail of the Spanish influenza pandemic that killed some 50 million people worldwide at the end of World War I, a strange crippling illness spread through Europe, causing severe lethargy, nerve problems, headaches and confusion. Scientists named the syndrome encephalitis lethargica — and it is estimated to have afflicted more than one million people at the time, according to the journal Brain. Thousands were left with permanent neurological damage that rendered them all but comatose. The 1990 hit film Awakenings dramatised the neurologist and author Oliver Sacks’s attempts to revive victims who had been trapped for decades in motionless, speechless passivity. Many experts believe that encephalitis lethargica was an after-effect of Spanish flu and that the virus travelled to victims’ brains through their noses, triggering the syndrome’s devastating symptoms. Now we are starting to witness something alarmingly similar in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, and neurological experts fear history could be repeating itself. Many experts believe that encephalitis lethargica was an after-effect of Spanish flu and that the virus travelled to victims’ brains through their noses,...

    Hed: Phamaly Matters Dek: The disability-affirmative theater troupe finds ways to adapt during the pandemic. By Khaleel Hayes This summer, Denver's Phamaly Theatre Company had big plans to produce Alice in Wonderland, with original music by rapper Kalyn Heffernan of Wheelchair Sports Camp. Those were scuttled when COVID-19 forced artistic director Regan Linton and managing director Sasha Hutchings to postpone. Now, like most theater groups, the company, whose name stands for Physically Handicapped Amateur Music Actors League, is trying to figure out how to continue offering productions and stay afloat through coronavirus closures. Part of carrying on is finding a new way to host the troupe's annual fundraiser, Phamaly’s Big Night, which will take place virtually at 7 p.m. on Saturday, October 18. The company hopes to raise at least $180,000 to make up for lost revenue. But while donations are encouraged, the fundraiser is free and will stream live on Phamaly’s YouTube channel.

    By FRANK WILKES LESNEFSKY, The (Scranton) Times-Tribune SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — Churches throughout the region see fewer donations, smaller crowds during pandemic Churches quickly adopt online services, find new ways to raise funds BY FRANK WILKES LESNEFSKY STAFF WRITER Oct 4, 2020 Updated 10 hrs ago Comments As the looming threat of COVID-19 became apparent, the Rev. Shawn Walker had one concern: keeping his congregation safe. He made the difficult decision to close Shiloh Baptist Church’s doors in March, shortly before government mandates brought life to a halt, leaving his small church in North Scranton with deserted pews and empty collection plates. “We didn’t know what to do, then it got very serious really quickly,” Walker said of the pandemic. Walker wasn’t alone. Turning from in-person fundraisers to collecting donations online, congregations and their leaders across the country have spent six months working to stay afloat during the pandemic, placing their faith in their religion to see them through. SS. Cyril and Methodius Ukrainian Catholic Church in Olyphant will likely be forced to cancel its major fundraiser this year, compounded...
