    WASHINGTON (AP) — Through seven hearings this summer, the House Jan. 6 panel has maintained two consistent themes: Donald Trump’s stubborn resistance to advisers who told him that Joe Biden won the election, and the former president’s role in inciting the Capitol insurrection. Each hearing has had a separate focus — this week’s was domestic extremism — but the nine-member panel investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack has not strayed from its central findings: that Trump made historically unprecedented moves to overturn his 2020 election defeat and then turned a blind eye as his supporters beat police and broke into the Capitol to defend him. A rundown of what we’ve learned so far from the public hearings of the select Jan. 6 committee — and what’s next: TRUMP IGNORED HIS ADVISERS At every hearing, the panel has played video testimony from White House aides and Trump associates who said they told Trump that Biden won the election and advised him to drop his false claims of widespread voter fraud. Many were emboldened by former Attorney General Bill...

    I have been reading and reporting about good news stories for many years now, and I thought I had seen my share of spreading sunshine, but then coronavirus happened as I was halfway through writing my book "Make Your Own Sunshine," and incredibly, I started to notice more stories than ever before about kindness and goodwill of others during this time of crisis. It’s one of the main themes I’ve seen in my own experience and documenting others’ that it is during the most challenging times – and the darkest of moments when the goodness of others shines the brightest.  As we were all in quarantine, socially distancing ourselves from the world and each other, I was talking by phone and video-chat to some inspiring people. I interviewed Rebecca Mehra from Washington State who bought groceries for an elderly couple in the parking lot who were too afraid to go in to get items themselves.

    (CNN)For the past four years, tech giants including Facebook (FB), Google (GOOGL) and Twitter (TWTR) have invested massively in beefing up their election security efforts — creating new rules for political advertisers, hiring thousands of content moderators and building ties with law enforcement. The aim has been to avoid a repeat of the 2016 campaign, which was marred by foreign meddling and highlighted how woefully unprepared social media companies were for an attack on US democracy leveraging their platforms. Now, as they gear up for the most consequential presidential race of the decade, the internet's largest platforms are eager to show they are ready. On Wednesday, the companies met with federal officials to discuss how they're monitoring their platforms for foreign interference and preparing for the Republican and Democratic national conventions. And on Thursday, Facebook, Google and Twitter all announced new or forthcoming efforts to promote voter registration and participation. Facebook told reporters on a conference call Thursday that it has engaged in tests and exercises to try to anticipate certain election night scenarios.But for all their efforts to hunt...
    LOS ANGELES -- When the coronavirus swept the world earlier this year, becoming a pandemic and major health crisis, it caught many off guard. Similarly, the HIV/AIDS pandemic that seemingly appeared out of nowhere in the early 1980s also caught the world by surprise, none more so than the LGBTQ community who seemed to be hit hardest first.However, unlike HIV and AIDS, which was largely ignored for years in the United States by the government and population at large, COVID-19 got people's attention immediately."Within sixty days there was a lockdown, then a quarantine and the country stopped," Dr. Chris Donaghue said about COVID-19.When AIDS was discovered, the opposite reaction happened. The disease was dismissed - often being referred to as the "gay plague"."It wasn't spoken about, information wasn't shared. Gay men died alone and isolated due to fear," Donaghue added.However, despite the difference in virus, there are some similarities."Coronavirus also owes a debt to the HIV or AIDS activist community which pushed the government to fund the science that opened an entirely new field of viral studies that has lead...
