    CNN anchor Chris Wallace got the inside scoop on legendary singer/songwriter Gloria Estefan’s insistence that her soon-to-be hit song undergo a title change. In Wallace’s Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace interview, the host asked about several of Estefan’s hit songs — but disappointingly did not sing along. One surprising anecdote was the reason behind “Rhythm Is Gonna Get You”‘s title change from a more disturbing one: WALLACE: All right, you started in the 1970s with a group called the Miami sound machine. And here is one of your signature songs. (Music Video Clip — Rythm Is Gonna Get You) WALLACE: Is it true that the original name of that song was ‘Boogie man’s gotta get you’? ESTEFAN: Absolutely. My drummer had come to me with the idea of the hook. Because then I co-wrote it with him and I go ‘I have a small child. I am not singing the boogeyman is gonna get you. This is insane.’ So one night we were in a little hotel. I think it was somewhere near Chicago on tour. And I kept thinking what...
    Face the Nation anchor Margaret Brennan absolutely fricasseed Republican Congressman Tom Emmer over a #FirePelosi post featuring video of him firing a gun, repeatedly blocking his attempts at evasion. Just days ago, Emmer posted a tweet featuring video in which he fires a machine gun at a shooting range, and wrote “13 days to make history. Let’s #FirePelosi.” Within 48 hours, a suspect named David DePape allegedly broke into Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s San Francisco home early Friday morning and violently attacked her husband Paul Pelosi while asking for the speaker’s whereabouts, placing the tweet in a different light. On Sunday’s edition of Face the Nation on CBS, Brennan pressed Emmer about the imagery, and repeatedly pushed back at his attempts to evade the issue. Things got heated: MARGARET BRENNAN: I want to ask you about this when it comes to political violence. On your Twitter feed, you posted this video we’re going to show – just a few days ago where you’re firing a gun and it says, “Enjoyed exercising my Second Amendment rights. Hashtag Fire Pelosi.” Why is there a gun...
    There was a time when the appointment of a new Prime Minister and the bowing out of the Home Secretary would have been no match for the stellar pulling-power of the Duchess of Sussex. But that was when she just seemed like a rather glamorous addition to a slightly fusty Royal Family: A ray of LA sunshine to brighten our – and Prince Harry’s – days. Since then, a few truths have transpired – not all of them perhaps as she might have hoped. And the great British public – away from whom it seems the Duchess cannot get far enough – have, not entirely unreasonably, become somewhat more circumspect about her motives and intentions. And so, what even six months ago might have been a whirlwind of flashbulbs and flowers began quietly, as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex spent the night in Frogmore Cottage, just a short walk from Harry’s brother and his family, newly installed on the Queen’s Windsor Estate. Despite their proximity, they rather sadly spent the evening alone, before yesterday quietly boarding the 12.20pm Avanti...
    CNN’s Chris Wallace on Tuesday touted former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson’s testimony before the House Select Committee investigating the January 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Hutchinson testified that she was told former President Donald Trump tried to commandeer the presidential suburban during the riot and became borderline violent with the Secret Service. NBC News later reported that agent Bobby Engel was willing to refute that testimony under oath. As part of CNN’s coverage of the hearings, Wallace said Hutchinson “was a great witness” and “just brilliant.” Partial transcript as follows: Can we talk about Cassidy Hutchinson? First of all — and I bow particularly to you, Andy, as somebody involved in prosecutions — she was a great witness. She was absolutely precise. She told you – I mean, if she … overheard a conference session, she’d say, ‘Cipollone went in the room, he left the door open, he was standing in the transom. I was talking … I could hear when I went into the dining room, I stepped back, but the door was open. I could see Mark...
    CNN anchor Chris Wallace gushed over surprise January 6 committee witness Cassidy Hutchinson following her bombshell testimony, telling viewers “She was just brilliant.” Hutchinson, a former top aide to Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and a front-row witness to the events surrounding the day, was the nucleus of a hearing during which she delivered bombshell after bombshell about the actions of then-President Donald Trump and his inner circle before and during the attack on the Capitol. During CNN’s special coverage Tuesday, co-anchor Anderson Cooper asked Wallace for his take, and Wallace used the opportunity to extoll the style, substance, and character of the star witness: CHRIS WALLACE: Can we talk about Cassidy Hutchinson? First of all – and I bow to – particularly to you and the – as somebody involved in prosecutions. She was a great witness. She was absolutely precise. She told you – I mean, if she heard – overheard a conference session, she’d say – Cipollone went in the room, he left the door open, he was standing in the transom.

    Donald Trump's attorney general Bill Barr said that his former boss is not up to the task of winning the 'transformative' 2024 election and should not again seek the presidency.  The former attorney general said that 2024's presidential election required a Republican who could usher in a new era as Ronald Reagan did in 1980, and said focusing on the 2020 election is not a winning strategy.  'I'm all for a new era. That's what I'm all about, is restoring the greatness of this country. And the principle threat is this progressive agenda. The only way to do that is not to speak about some other election and continue this trench warfare but instead a breakthrough election that will create and usher in an era just like Reagan did,' Barr told the Washington Examiner.  'I don't necessarily want to take a shot at Trump, but Trump is not that man,' he added.  'If you believe in the MAGA agenda, we've already punched the other guy in the nose. Now, how do we actually go about methodically restoring the United States?'...

    VIDEO14:4714:47Watch CNBC's one-on-one interview with California Gov. Gavin NewsomPolitics California Governor Gavin Newsom on Thursday said the state's in a "transformational moment" to shift away from fossil fuels, as climate change continues to fuel devastating wildfire seasons and historic drought conditions across California. The governor's remarks to CNBC's Yasmin Khorram come shortly after the state unveiled this year's budget proposal, which invests $22 billion in new climate change funding and allocates money from last year's budget for a total of $37 billion in climate investment over six years. "The magnitude of the challenge is self-evident," Newsom said. "The extreme droughts, the record-breaking heat that we experienced just 24 or so months ago, record-breaking wildfires ... require us to do more and to manage these existential threats more aggressively. We're doing everything in our power, not just rhetorical." Newsom said the budget's climate funding is an example of the state's willingness to do the hard work that other states and nations simply talk about. "A lot of jurisdictions talk a good game. They put out headline grabbing pronouncements of 'We're going to reduce...
    Stewart Rhodes, founder of the far-right militia group the Oath Keepers, has been charged with seditious conspiracy as part of the U.S. Department of Justice’s probe of the January 6, 2021 insurrection. Washington Post reporters Spencer S. Hsu and Devlin Barrett have described the 56-year-old Rhodes as “the most high-profile person charged in the investigation so far.” And according to Never Trump conservative Amanda Carpenter, Rhodes’ arrest explodes a MAGA talking about the violence that occurred during the Capitol riot.

    Chicago Teachers Union President Jesse Sharkey said that the mayor's opposition to remote learning is a "talking point" during a press conference on Saturday. During the press conference where the Chicago Teachers Union unveiled their new proposal to the Chicago Public Schools to get back to in-person learning, Sharkey said that Chicago Mayor Lori Lighfoot's opposition to remote learning is "just a talking point," adding that remote education is a "tool." "I hear the mayor say that she doesn't want to do remote. But honestly, that's just a talking point, it's an idea, ‘remote is bad.' Remote education is a tool. Teachers view remote education, yeah, it's not as good as in-person," Sharkey said.

    Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren told "Outnumbered" on Monday that New York's consideration of a race-based COVID treatment measure is "lunacy." NEW YORK SAYS IT WILL PRIORITIZE NON-WHITE PATIENTS FOR COVID TREATMENTS TOMI LAHREN: For the party that claims to want unity, they are sure sending some mixed messages here. And I think that we should all take a page out of the book of John Dutton. And if this is what progress looks like, we should be the world that progress runs into. This is not progressivism. This is just lunacy. It is ridiculous. And, again, this is race-baiting identity politics which is all the left has.  But I think that there’s a bigger conversation to be had here as we have all discussed. We need to be focusing treatments and therapeutics on those that are more vulnerable, but in the bigger picture for this nation, we need to be talking about overall health. If you recall, in the last two years of the pandemic, we have had gyms, AA meetings, and other things that have had limited capacity,...

    Donald Trump, who still believes he’s never lost an election and that windmills are still trying to kill him, loves to tell people he’s a “stable genius.” Yet if he wants to see what an actual genius can do, he should watch Jimmy Kimmel. Lauren Boebert made the mistake of trying to go toe to toe with Kimmel after he made fun of her in a segment a few days ago.  Boebert called Jimmy Kimmel sexist for making a joke about her. This is rich coming from someone who voted against the Violence Against Women Act and said the Equal Rights Amendment should be “thrown out like rotten milk.” The reaction on Twitter was swift, with people railing against Boebert for blaming rape victims for their own assaults by not being armed and saying rape victims should be forced to carry their rapist’s child. Oh, and the fact that her husband exposed himself to children.  I wondered how Jimmy would respond. Yet rather than going directly after Boebert, Kimmel simply used her own words to illustrate to everyone what a joke she is. The videos she makes...
    CNN anchor Jim Acosta grilled former presidential candidate Andrew Yang for granting Tucker Carlson an interview recently, and failing to call him out when he offered praise for the Unabomber. On Saturday afternoon’s edition of CNN Newsroom With Jim Acosta, Acosta concluded his interview with Yang by asking him about the interview, and playing a clip of Carlson offering qualified praise for the writings of Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber. Acosta asked Yang what he was trying to accomplish, and why he didn’t push back on the Unabomber praise. With a pained expression, Acosta said “I mean, Andrew, I just have to ask, I mean, Tucker Carlson, I mean, I mean, let’s just say he’s just a bad person, and he represents so much of what is wrong on, in television news these days.” “You know this all too well. He spouts off white nationalist talking points,” Acosta added, and asked “And so why? Why would you even go on his show, and why didn’t you go after him when he’s citing the Unabomber and talking, I mean, just crazy stuff?” “One...
    Remembering September 11, 2001 on its 20th anniversary, former ESPN host Trey Wingo recalled the impact sports had on the country’s ability to recover. A memory that stands out to Wingo was then President George W. Bush attending the 2001 World Series. Specifically, his walk out to the Yankee Stadium mound to throw the honorary first pitch with a crowd of 49,646 in the stands and millions more watching from home. Wingo referenced it as one of the most emotional moments after 9/11. “I don’t care who you voted for,” Wingo said on his podcast Half-Forgotten History. “I don’t care what you’re political affiliations are. That moment – when President Bush walked out to that mound and obviously he was wearing a flak jacket underneath, but stood there and basically said ‘hear I am, take your best shot.’ And delivered a bullet of a strike over the plate.” “We’re not gonna do the story of the Iraq war,” Wingo’s guest Bob Ley added, noting that there are much less admirable moments from Bush’s tenure as president. “It’s that moment....
    A Marine veteran who served in Afghanistan criticized people on TV saying the U.S. should be staying longer. Lucas Kunce, a Democrat running for Senate in Missouri, spoke with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell Monday night hours after America’s military withdrawal from Afghanistan officially ended. O’Donnell reflected on the speech George W. Bush gave a month after 9/11 on going into Afghanistan, and remarked, “I think when we were listening to that, whether people were in favor of it or not, it didn’t sound like this is going to be ten years, this is going to be even five years. This sounded like not exactly a surgical strike, but it sounded like it was going in there, not trying to build a nation, certainly.” Kunce argued that the Taliban was able to take over quickly because “they learned how to do all that” in the two decades since the U.S. went in. He went on to add this: The real tragedy for me here — like a huge tragedy — is that I still see on TV people talking about how we need...
    Chief White House medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said Monday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” in light of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granting full approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. It was now time for companies, governments and schools to mandate vaccines. Fauci said, “There was some poll that showed it, that about 30% of people who are not anti-vax, they were just waiting to get what they felt was the real final stamp of approval, which we just got today with the Pfizer product. And those 30% are saying when that occurs, they will feel very, very comfortable about getting vaccinated. So right away, you’re talking about 30%. I hope they come through with what the survey said.” He added, “But the other thing that you just mentioned now is they’re going to give a lot of incentive and backing for a lot of institutions and organizations and places of employment to mandate, and that could be colleges, university, the military, organizations that employ a lot of people, some of the big corporations are going to say if...
    RITA Ora and her boyfriend Taika Waititi are already talking about getting married, according to a new report. The couple started dating in March of this year after meeting in Australia and are now living in LA together as their whirlwind romance goes from strength to strength. 3Rita Ora and Taika Waititi are reportedly already talking about marriageCredit: AFP 3Rita is said to be besotted with her new man According to New Idea, an insider said: “Taika calls Rita "wifey" all the time and chats about how he's going to be her first and last husband. “Everyone around them downplays it as flirty banter, but Rita is definitely hoping he's for real.” Singer Rita has reportedly been joking with pals that they’ll marry in a “quick, hippy-dippy” ceremony before celebrating with a bigger bash later.  Taika was previously married to film producer Chelsea Winstanley but split in 2018, while Rita has never tied the knot before.

She’s sad to hear about Trumka’s death. Her heart goes out to his family. They disagreed but he fought for what he believed was right … and then she gets going on the crudest Republican anti-worker talking points as she proclaims her intent to crush everything he fought for. “Jobs-killing mandated wages,” or, as we usually call it, the minimum wage. “Forced unionization,” also known as not allowing free riders. “Other socialist policies,” an umbrella term for anything that...
    Photo by Emma McIntyre/Getty Images Comedienne Chelsea Handler rebuked White people who would rather complain about cancel culture instead of addressing issues that cause public offense. During Handler’s appearance on the Call Me Daddy podcast this week, the comic tackled both ends of cancel culture by leading with her argument that people shouldn’t be ostracized outright if they genuinely attempt to address their objectionable behavior. By contrast, however, Handler called out those who refuse to apologize and don’t try to understand the controversy around them. I think that when people make an apology, and it’s sincere, that that should count for something. And the people that aren’t apologizing need to understand why they need to apologize, and actually address the issue head-on instead of trying to get back in under the door. All you have to do is say you’re sorry and mean it. Why’s that so f*cking hard? Handler argued that this trend is particularly common among “White men” — sarcastically stating, “why’s the f*cking party over? We can’t rape you guys anymore? You gonna tell on us?” “If...
    Former President Donald Trump refuted reports of a shouting match between him and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley, adding that he would have fired the general for simply “talking back.” The claims first arose in Wall Street Journal reporter Michael Bender’s new book “Frankly, We Did Win This Election,” set for release in August, with an excerpt detailing a heated exchange between the two regarding last summer’s violent Black Lives Matter protests, Newsweek reported Monday. The excerpt suggests that Milley and Trump had gotten into an expletive-filled shouting match after Milley told the then-president that he was an adviser and could not be put in charge of attempting to suppress the protests, Newsweek reported. Trump wanted Milley in charge of protests last summer, but the nation’s top general was a military adviser—not in command of troops. The argument erupted in a shouting match. “You can’t fucking talk to me like that!”@axios has the latest from my book: https://t.co/F0QIBfyFKi pic.twitter.com/IWsAUP21qA — Michael C.

    Dr. Anthony Fauci has just undercut one of the left’s favorite talking points: all their nonsense about how conservatives should shut up about hoaxes like climate change because the “science is settled.” Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the top federal bureaucrat guiding America’s response to the coronavirus epidemic, is in a lot of hot water over his emails. Obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the emails appear to show that what Fauci said and believed in private was very different from what he said publicly, including while under oath before the United States Senate. To explain away these contradictions, Fauci appeared on one of his sycophant’s cable news shows to argue that he was not saying one thing in private and another thing in public, but that his thinking evolved with the science and data. Here’s the meat of his argument [emphasis added]: [T]here is no doubt there are people out there, for one reason or another, resent me for what I did in the last administration, which was not anything...
    Fox News’ Harris Faulkner was shocked by Andrew Cuomo’s (D) audacity in light of the New York governor’s latest comments about elderly people being susceptible to the coronavirus because of those who aren’t vaccinated. The governor had a press conference on Monday to talk about New York’s strategy to vaccinate younger people and those who are otherwise hesitant because they believe they will be fine even if they catch Covid. Cuomo directed his remarks at such people — saying that “maybe you will get a long-haul syndrome that would not really be sure what it is yet, but a lingering consequence of Covid. Or maybe you’ll go home and kiss your grandmother, and wind up killing your grandmother.” Of course, these remarks came as Cuomo has been under pressure for months over his nursing home scandal, not to mention multiple allegations of sexual harassment. The nursing home scandal — for which Cuomo is facing an inquiry — revolves around claims of mismanagement and that his administration concealed data on how many elderly people died in connection with his policy directives....
    Officials in Iran once again debunked claims by the U.S. State Department and friendly media that the Biden Administration is in “indirect” talks with Tehran on Wednesday, stating the Islamic regime has nothing to discuss without an end to every American sanction on the rogue state. State Department spokesman Ned Price confirmed Monday that President Joe Biden approved travel for his top Iran envoy, Robert Malley, to Vienna, Austria, where the remaining signatories to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal would be meeting this week. While Price claimed Malley would be in town for “indirect” talks with the partners in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iranian officials quickly dismissed this claim, asserting that “no representative from the United States will attend the Joint Commission meeting or related expert meetings and no direct and indirect negotiations with the United States are on the agenda of Iran’s delegation.” Iranian officials Wednesday again repeated their clarification that they are not in discussions with any representatives of the Biden administration and that they will only address the Americans if the United States repeals...
    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Thursday defended President Biden's sprawling economic spending measure, even though just a fraction of the $2.25 trillion being billed as an infrastructure package goes toward rebuilding the nation's crumbling roads and bridges. "We're talking about roads and bridges, we're talking about rail and transit, we're talking about airports, we're talking about the grid," Buttigieg said during an interview on "America's Newsroom." "I don't know why anybody would say it's a mistake to invest in the grid after what we just witnessed in Texas." WHAT'S IN BIDEN'S $2.2T INFRASTRUCTURE AND TAX PROPOSAL? Biden unveiled the first part of his infrastructure proposal — dubbed the American Jobs Plan — on Wednesday, laying out a $2.25 trillion, eight-year spending plan that will be paid for by raising the corporate tax rate to 28% from 21% and increasing the global minimum tax on U.S. corporations to 21% from 13%. The plan calls for $621 billion in new spending on roads, bridges, rail, ports, waterways, airports, public transportation and electric vehicles. Just $115 billion, or roughly 5.6% of total spending, would go toward modernizing 20,000 miles of highways,...

    TEOFIMO LOPEZ called on his rivals Gervonta Davis, Ryan Garcia and Devin Haney to all fight each other 'instead of just talking about it'. The lightweight division is on the cusp of a golden generation with stacks of talent emerging. 4Lightweight world champion Teofimo LopezCredit: Handout - Getty Lopez, 23, is the current 135lb ruler having dethroned Vasiliy Lomachenko, 32, in a career-defining upset in 2020.

The lightweight division is hot right now. "You got Garcia, Tank and Haney;...

    Parents who 'engage in conversation' with their babies can help improve their language development faster than simply talking when they are in the room. Researchers from Stanford University and others studied the brains of babies aged between five and eight months while they slept inside an MRI machine. Rather than simply overhearing adult words, parents who take it in turns to have 'conversations' with their babies can shape their future language abilities, they found. Scientists say that the brain's language networks may develop in two stages - in the womb they develop processing networks to process sound, then another network once they are a few months old to understand more complex language.    The amount and quality of the language babies are exposed to has a significant affect on their future language abilities, lead author Lucy King wrote. An infant wears the LENA audio recording device in a pocket on the front of a special vest - this was used to record language the infant was exposed to as part of the study Rather than simply overhearing adult words,...

George Springer is one of the most prominent of the many free agents the Blue Jays are reportedly exploring this offseason, but the Jays’ initial interest in Springer seems to be developing.  According to Sportsnet.ca’s Shi Davidi, the Jays have “progressed beyond just talking” with Springer, which would seem to indicate that Toronto has issued at least one offer to the former World Series MVP. Such a step doesn’t necessarily indicate that a deal could be close, or even that Springer is the Blue Jays’ top free-agent target.  However, the Jays already made one early signing in bringing Robbie Ray back to the club on a one-year contract, and the wide net Toronto is seemingly casting over so many free agents could indicate that the Blue Jays are looking to strike while many other teams are still figuring out their payrolls...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Do you know the feeling? Getting up from the Thanksgiving table and realizing immediately you may have overdone it. The owner of Active Eating Advice, Leslie Bonci, MPH, RD, CSSD, LDN says most people make a mistake long before they sit down for the celebration by not eating during the day. “Eat regularly. So if you’re going to have Thanksgiving ‘dinner’ do eat breakfast or lunch,” she warns. “If you’re going to have a Thanksgiving meal midday, do eat a breakfast so it’s kind of think about that as your appetizer, so there’s not as much room in your stomach and then you’re not quite as hungry.” Bonci says eliminate things you can, and do, have any other time of the year. “Why do you have to have crackers before a Thanksgiving meal, you don’t,” she said. “If you really want to sit and enjoy that food that you’ve created or somebody else has created for you and take the time to chew it to taste it, to enjoy it, instead of stuffing so...

    CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta offered up a pithy and devastating summation of President Donald Trump’s status as of 12:01 p.m. on Inauguration Day, 2021. During a Friday night appearance on Anderson Cooper 360, Acosta was asked about the president’s briefly-almost-a-concession Rose Garden address about the coronavirus pandemic earlier in the day, as well as his incessant grasping at ridiculous lawsuits and various conspiracy theories to try to flip the 2020 election in his favor. “This is the first time we have seen President Trump over a week, first time I have seen him talk about Covid for a while,” host Anderson Cooper pointed out. “His loss is further — the legal battles are falling apart. When is the inevitable going to happen?” “Well, he was pretending in his Rose Garden address that there is some sort of way for him to get back to the White House come January 20th, that’s not going to happen,” Acosta noted. “He was even talking about at some point he’s not going to let this country going into the lockdown, but thenproceeded whatever...
    The song “Facts,” from BG Lil Pat and Bando HotHead, has become the soundtrack for a TikTok trend about “problems” and “perks.” Hide The trend uses a snippet from the 2019 song, and Know Your Meme points to a late September TikTok from user frzyk as the origin of the audio. The sound has since been used in more than 470,000 TikToks and typically applies to videos where a person states a “perk” or “problem,” only to reveal a twist.

    Every once in a great, great while, life is more delicious than you’d dared to hope.  I was reading early Wednesday afternoon about what may be the big scoop from Bob Woodward’s new book on the Trump administration: that on February 7, while Trump was pooh-poohing the virus publicly, he told Woodward: “This is deadly stuff.” In fact, five times as deadly as the normal flu, he said. There’s no denying that Trump said this; lordly, there are tapes. So I asked myself the question that any journalist would : What was Trump saying publicly on that day? When the president of the United States was acknowledging to America’s most famous reporter that the coronavirus was far more deadly than your average flu, it was hours after he’d sent out these two successive tweets, at 5:31 a.m.:
    TheaDesign/Shutterstock A Black man in Ohio was sitting in his car talking on his cellphone when police approached him about having a gun, Record-Courier reported.  An unidentified woman had called in a tip to the Raveena Police Department claiming that the man, Darren Cooper, was "holding a pistol," as he sat in the car in the parking lot where he worked. Police videos obtained by the Record-Courier, showed Cooper explaining to officers that he was talking on his iPhone and was unarmed. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.   Police were called on a Black man who was talking on his cellphone while in his parked car of being armed with a pistol, Record-Courier reported.  The incident occurred last month in Ravenna, Ohio, on August 13, after a woman — whose identity is unknown— was at a dentist's office across the street from Cooper's workplace and called in a tip to the Ravenna Police Department about a man "in a black Mustang with a gun," according to the Record-Courier. The woman told police that she was "pretty darn...
    NEW YORK (CBS) – Duke University Medical Center researchers say their new study confirms coronavirus can be spread just by talking, without coughing or sneezing. They wanted to test how easily germs can spread even during normal conversations. They used a box, laser, lens and cell phone camera to visualize droplets And filmed people speaking into the box. “It’s astounding how much stuff comes out of you when you just speak, you didn’t have to sneeze or cough. It’s the speaking itself that already generates lots of droplets,” said Duke researcher Martin Fischer. “You may not know that you’re spreading the disease, you won’t see it,” said Dr. Eric Westman, another Duke researcher. Fischer and Westman’s team tested several types of face coverings. N95s without valves were the best protection and surgical masks were also adequate. Popular double-layer cotton masks provided good coverage as well. But coverings like bandanas and neck fleeces did not block droplets much and may actually spread them more. “You have this mesh in front of you, these big droplets that you emit, actually get broken...

    Nicholas Kamm/AFP/Getty Images Thursday afternoon, President Donald Trump followed up on his morning tweet suggesting the November election could be delayed — comments that drew immediate condemnation from both sides of the aisle — with another tweet seemingly dismissing the entire thing as a big 0l’ prank on the media. Trump’s original tweet came as part of a thread complaining about the so-called risks of mail-in ballots — risks which he has highly exaggerated — and ended with a question about delaying the election “until people can properly, securely and safely vote???” After several hours of criticism and reporters seeking comment from the White House, Trump tweeted that his real purpose was to “get the very dishonest LameStream Media to finally start talking about the RISKS to our Democracy from dangerous Universal Mail-In-Voting (not Absentee Voting, which I totally support!).” Glad I was able to get the very dishonest LameStream Media to finally start talking about the RISKS to our Democracy from dangerous Universal Mail-In-Voting (not Absentee Voting, which I totally support!). — Donald J.

    President Donald Trump claimed his bombshell attempt to delay November's election was merely a way to get the media to talk about his allegations against mail-in voting and added that he expects to know election results the night of Nov. 3. 'Glad I was able to get the very dishonest LameStream Media to finally start talking about the RISKS to our Democracy from dangerous Universal Mail-In-Voting (not Absentee Voting, which I totally support!),' he tweeted.  Trump took to Twitter to try and clean up an electoral mess stemming from an earlier tweet Thursday suggesting the November 3rd general election be delayed. Presidents have no power to change the date of the election. That must be done through an act of Congress. And Republican senators, including several Trump allies, were quick to say it wasn't going happen. President Donald Trump claimed his bombshell attempt to delay November's election was merely a way to get the media to talk about mail-in voting Trump then argued he wanted to bring attention to his argument that mail-in...
