    When a doctor told Ivan that he needed to isolate himself and not share bedsheets to keep the MPX virus from spreading, he wondered: How? “It would be absurd trying to isolate while sharing a bed,” the Hayward, Calif., resident said in Spanish. The 43-year-old man, who is gay, had been splitting a bedroom with a female friend to save money in the San Francisco Bay Area, where rents are steep. He was grateful when another friend offered him somewhere else to isolate, but then there was the money: Doctors warned that isolation might last weeks as his lesions healed, and Ivan was out of sick days at the grocery store where he works. The virus racked him with pain and ultimately kept him away from work for three weeks — and that cost him almost $2,000 in income, said Ivan, who asked to go by only his first name to protect his privacy. Now rent is looming. A friend helped him cover his phone bill, but as of late August, he still needed $500 for a car payment....
    Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld mourned Brian Stelter’s position with CNN on Thursday following news that Stelter’s Reliable Sources is coming to an end. “Happy Thursday, everyone. But it’s really not that happy,” Gutfeld said at the top of his show. “First of all, we have some sad news for this show. Brian Stelter is leaving CNN. Apparently, he wants to spend more time with his food. I kid the popping fresh king. I’m going to miss him.” Proving how central poking fun at Stelter was for his show, Gutfeld played a montage of him ripping Stelter, mainly with jokes about his weight. Stelter’s exit from CNN comes amidst numerous major shakeups under the Warner Bros. Discovery umbrella. These have included the quick axing of CNN+, as well as nearly completed films like Batgirl being shelved in favor of tax write-offs for the company as they implement cost-cutting measures. After watching his montage, Gutfeld noted the departure of numerous media talking heads he’s long made fun of, including Stelter, Jeffrey Toobin, and Chris Cuomo — who will be joining NewsNation in the fall. “First Chris...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — If you’ve been working from home and returning to the office, you’ll notice the cost of your favorite lunch items going up while some companies are quietly shrinking the sizes of your favorite food products. “I can tell from having the same budget that I had before all of this, I would get less,” Darrina Carr, a deal-hunting mom, said. “It seemed like the bags would get smaller and smaller.” READ MORE: Woman Who Took Child In Virginia May Be In Frederick, Maryland, Police SayThe index for food away from home has increased 7.4% over the last year, according to a Labor Department report.

    Joe Biden was right for proposing free pre-K and free community college in his initial legislative package, rather than pushing for free public university education and the cancellation of college debt. All four progressive education initiatives would serve the public good by making education more available to millions. However, policies that promote university education do little to help the working class. They also feed into the false and damaging narrative that a college education is the right path to upward mobility for most people. While free public universities could be transformative in the very long term, most of the benefits would go to higher-income families. They are more likely to live in areas with high-quality K-12 schools. Their children are more likely to have the kinds of social and cultural capital advantageous for getting into and succeeding in college. Similarly, while forgiving all or some portion of existing student loan debt would likely benefit low- and middle-income young people, who are more likely to have higher levels of debt than their more affluent contemporaries, this too...

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi criticized President Trump for telling women voters he is "getting your husbands back to work." She said Thursday that the thinking was outdated and "removed from the realities of life." "What decade is he living in? What century is he living in? So completely removed from the realties of life. And that has caused death," Pelosi said during her weekly press conference. During a rally in Michigan on Tuesday, Mr. Trump tried to appeal to women in the audience, saying he was "saving suburbia." He said he was the best candidate for women because he was "getting your kids back to school" and "getting your husbands back to work."

    This fall, as colleges around the country wrestled with how to reopen amid the coronavirus crisis, officials in California required a cautious approach. Classes were put online, isolation rooms were set up on campus, and restrictions were placed on the number of students permitted to live in dormitories or come on campus. But what deans and provosts couldn’t control were the thousands of students who returned to fill apartments and houses in neighborhoods surrounding their schools, determined to salvage some semblance of a college experience. Unchecked by campus rules and safeguards, these students became fertile ground for the virus, which has spread rapidly on and around several California campuses despite sparsely populated dormitories and classrooms. From San Diego to Chico, the outbreaks have thrown universities into crisis mode as they scramble to slow the virus’ spread with tighter restrictions and attempts to cajole students into safer behavior. With so many students living in close quarters and often pressing ahead with parties and other gatherings that disregard social distancing guidelines, some experts said school officials’ hopes of keeping the virus...
