In early August, more than 460,000 motorcycle enthusiasts converged on Sturgis, S.D., for a 10-day celebration where few wore facial coverings or practiced social distancing. A month later, researchers have found that thousands have been sickened across the nation, leading them to brand the Sturgis rally a “superspreader” event. “The Sturgis Rally was one of the largest in-person gatherings since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States,” said Joseph J. Sabia, one of the study's authors, a professor of economics and the director of the Center for Health Economics & Policy Studies at San Diego State University.
A South Carolina police chief was stabbed in the face with an ice pick when he answered his door, officials say. Franco Fuda was in his Charleston-area home — on-duty, putting on equipment and wearing his uniform — when he heard someone knock on Monday, the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office said in an incident report. That's when Fuda, chief of the Bonneau Police Department, saw a man in his front yard who had been on a “trespass notice” for his property, the report said.
A day after President Donald Trump accused the U.S. military brass of wanting to fight wars to keep weapons makers happy, the Army's top general said on Tuesday leaders of the armed forces would recommend sending troops into combat only when it is in American national security interests or as a last resort. Asked about Trump's Monday criticism of Pentagon leaders, U.S. Army Chief of Staff General James McConville declined to comment directly on it, saying the military should remain out of politics, especially close to an election. "Many of these leaders have sons and daughters that serve in the military, many of these leaders have sons and daughters who have gone to combat or may be in combat right now," McConville, who Trump appointed to his post, said during an online forum hosted by Defense One, a media organization focusing on the U.S. military.
A Wisconsin priest who condemned Catholic Democrats has the support of a Texas bishop. Father James Altman, pastor of St. James the Less Catholic Church, lashed out at Father James Martin, who participated in the Democratic National Convention. In a 10-minute video posted to YouTube, Altman called the priest a “hyper, confusing spreading heretic” and had harsh words toward Democrats.
In a tweet Tuesday, President Donald Trump pressured Twitter to remove a meme poking fun at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The meme, shared by a user with fewer than 200 followers, shows McConnell's face photoshopped onto a Soviet Union soldier with the caption "Moscow Mitch."

Elliott's father told Fox 5 San Diego that as an African American it was "frightening and upsetting" to have law enforcement arrive over the issue.

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko could be about to give away his country's independence by signing an agreement on deeper integration with Russia, Lithuania's foreign minister said on Monday. Russian President Vladimir Putin has for many years pushed for closer ties with Belarus under the auspices of a unified state, and raised the idea again last month. Lukashenko has in the past rejected such moves, accusing Russia of wanting to swallow up his country, but now faces protests and the threat of Western sanctions over an Aug. 9 presidential election which opponents say was rigged.
China's export growth accelerated in August while imports edged lower as the world's second-largest economy extended its recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. Imports declined 2.1% to $176.3 billion, compared with the previous month's 1.4% contraction. China's exporters have benefited from its relatively early reopening from a shutdown to fight the virus while competitors in many other countries still face anti-disease controls that disrupt business.
The sun may be setting on Democrats' hopes of picking up Florida. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has seemingly lost his advantage over President Trump in the crucial swing state of Florida, an NBC News/Marist poll released Tuesday found. A lot of that shift seemingly stems from Florida's Latino voters, who have gone from resoundingly supporting Hillary Clinton in 2016 to actually tipping in Trump's favor this time around, the poll showed.

The travel influencer said that people in hazmat suits had "dragged" her away from her friends when the test came back after a few days and that she was put in isolation in a hotel room.

The straight-line distance between Washington, D.C., and Dover, Delaware, is less than 85 miles. Because there is no room for error when handling the remains of a service member returning to the United States after being killed in combat. In retrospect, I recall noticing the silence of the rest of the casket team.
