    Andrew Cuomo wants to return to power. Ha! He doesn't have a chance. Right? Don't be so sure. Other politicians recovered from pretty awful scandals. Former Virginia governor Ralph Northam allegedly wore blackface in a medical school yearbook photo, unconvincingly denied it was him and finished his term. His Lt. Gov., Justin Fairfax, was accused of sexual assault by two women – he also completed his term. Marion Barry was caught on infamous FBI sting video allegedly smoking crack-cocaine. He was re-elected mayor of Washington after a drug conviction and jail sentence. If there's one thing going for Andrew Cuomo, it's that he's got nothing else going for him. He craved the spotlight as New York Governor – he believes he was bred for power. He's got nothing else to lose. The question is – would Cuomo be welcomed back? Only voters can keep him unemployed. In hindsight, the heir to the political legacy of his father, Mario Cuomo, was never truly remorseful for his behavior and always plotting a return. (Above) Then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo after announcing his resignation, Aug....

Andrew Cuomo when asked if the Democratic governor should resign.

White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told MSNBC earlier Sunday that "Every woman that comes forward ... they should be heard, they should be listened to and they should be respected. That's what the President believes, that's what the Vice President believes."Vice President Kamala Harris has yet to explicitly weigh in on the allegations.This is a breaking story and will be updated.
    Protesters hold signs near the Yulin Dog Meat Festival as the annual fair takes place, in Yulin, China, June 22, 2020. Handoout/Du Yufeng/Bo Ai Animal Protection Center Beijing — China's annual dog meat festival is underway in the southwestern city of Yulin. This year, however, the fair is taking place with the backdrop of a coronavirus pandemic, and in defiance of a government initiative to improve animal welfare and reduce the risks associated with live animal markets. With rules and attitudes changing, activists hope this year could be the last for the Yulin dog meat festival. The 10-day fair was first held in 2009 to celebrate the summer solstice. It has attracted thousands of visitors every year, many of whom pick live dogs from cramped cages to cook and eat. Cat meat, fresh lychee fruits and liquor are also on offer.

    Is it safe to stay in hotels as reopenings get underway? It depends on the precautions both you and the hotel take. It’s best to call ahead to see how the place you’re considering is working to minimize the risk of COVID-19. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests asking if the staff is wearing face coverings, for example, and whether cleaning practices have been stepped up. To reassure potential guests, many hotels — from luxury resorts to budget brands — are sharing the changes they’re making on their websites. New practices may include adding hand sanitizer stations in lobbies, disinfecting surfaces like elevator buttons more frequently and removing extra items in rooms, such as pens and paper. Breakfast buffets may also be replaced with prepackaged meals. Once at a hotel, Dr. Albert Ko at the Yale School of Public Health says guests should continue to follow social distancing guidelines, since the virus spreads mainly from person-to-person contact. Dine outside if possible, he says, and don’t crowd into elevators. The CDC also suggests taking the stairs when...
    London (CNN Business)Record stimulus efforts are facilitating the global recovery from the steepest economic downturn since the Great Depression. That means it's time to spend even more, investors and economists say.What's happening: The US jobs report for May showed that the US economy, which had been expected to shed another 8 million jobs, actually added 2.5 million jobs, pushing the unemployment rate down to 13.3%. Wall Street economists said this indicates that the job market — and perhaps the broader economy — is healing faster than expected."While it may still take a year or longer for activity and employment to return to prior levels, the path now looks both shorter and more direct than most had assumed," Citigroup's Andrew Hollenhorst and Veronica Clark told clients Friday.Joseph Brusuelas, chief economist at RSM, said it's a sign that stimulus programs such as the Paycheck Protection Program, which provides emergency loans to struggling small businesses, have been effective.But just because some people are returning to work doesn't mean the heavy lifting from policymakers can end, Brusuelas warned.Read More"Sustained policy attention" is still needed...
