During my senior year of high school, I went home after school on a Friday in March, excited that we might have two weeks off. Even then I didn't think it was realistic to expect the full break, and I expected to go back to school the following Monday. But that Friday would be my last real day of high school ever.
The White House is blocking strict new coronavirus vaccine guidelines proposed by the Food and Drug Administration due to a provision that would likely prevent any vaccine from being authorized before the November election, several people familiar with the matter told The New York Times. The guidelines are intended to reassure the public that coronavirus vaccines are being held to a common standard, the Times reports. Per the guidelines, this would have to happen before authorization is granted for a vaccine, with FDA officials saying it's necessary to determine if there are side effects and to make sure the vaccine protects people for longer than a few weeks.
The announcement of Sen. Kamala Harris as the Democratic vice presidential nominee – the first Black woman and Asian person on a major party's presidential ticket – was met with more racist and sexist stereotyping in media coverage compared to both major parties' 2016 vice presidential nominees, according to a new report. One quarter of coverage of Harris included racist or sexist tropes, such as describing the senator as too "uncooperative" or "ambitious," according to the report from Time's Up Now, the political arm of TIME'S UP, which advocates to end harassment and discrimination in the workplace. “It demonstrates with numbers how normal we think it is for white men to run for these offices, and how unusual or subject to criticism we think it is for a woman of color to run for those offices,” said Tina Tchen, president and CEO of TIME'S UP Now.
A 65-year-old man in the Buffalo, New York, area faces charges after an 80-year-old man who had confronted him about not wearing a coronavirus face mask died following the dispute.

Flynn said at a news conference Monday.
Former CIA Director John Brennan briefed former President Obama on Hillary Clinton's “plan” to tie the Trump campaign to Russia as a means of distracting the public from her private email server scandal before the 2016 election, according to newly declassified documents. Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Tuesday declassified Brennan's handwritten notes along with a CIA memo showing that officials referred the alleged scheme to the FBI for potential investigation. Today, at the direction of President Trump, I declassified additional documents relevant to ongoing Congressional oversight and investigative activities,” Ratcliffe said in a statement.
The chairman of an Arkansas county Republican committee died from complications associated with COVID-19 on Tuesday—less than one month after his organization hosted a maskless gathering with other elected leaders. Steven Farmer, who served as the chairman of the Craighead County Republican Committee, died on Tuesday after a weeks-long battle with the coronavirus that resulted in a stay at the ICU and a ventilator, his daughter and the organization announced. The news comes just three weeks after his committee hosted an event with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX), who contracted COVID-19 in July, for Reagan Day.
One of the most fearsome “yakuza” underworld groups in Japan has been told it cannot hand out sweets to trick-or-treating children at Halloween.

The local authority was acting on a proposal from the prefectural police, which has been waging a war of attrition against the largest “yakuza” group in Japan.

Donald Trump | mail in voting Getty Images/Salon Trump campaign officials and legal advisers are reportedly preparing to appoint their own state electors as a way to secure victory in a contested election, a move that would precipitate an unprecedented constitutional crisis.

It is likely, given a raft of threatening public statements from President Trump, that he will reject unfavorable results.

An earlier universe existed before the Big Bang and can still be observed today, Sir Roger Penrose has said, as he received the Nobel Prize for Physics. Sir Roger, 89, who won the honour for his seminal work proving that black holes exist, said he had found six 'warm' points in the sky (dubbed 'Hawking Points') which are around eight times the diameter of the Moon. The timescale for the complete evaporation of a black hole is huge, possibly longer than the age of our current universe, making them impossible to detect.
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Gov. Kristi Noem claimed Monday that South Dakota has given the rest of the country an example of how to navigate a pandemic without heavy-handed government mandates. During a special legislative session in Pierre, Noem told lawmakers that while her resistance to statewide stay-at-home orders has drawn criticism, it's also provided a different approach to managing the pandemic than those taken in other states. "As you all might imagine, these last seven months have been quite lonely at times," Noem said.
MSNBC's Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski has questioned if President Donald Trump would face “manslaughter” charges for potentially infecting the Secret Service and members of the White House with Covid-19. The question was posed on Tuesday as Ms Brzezinksi and guests on Morning Joe discussed the president's dramatic journey back to the White House after he was discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday. “Maybe the president is immune from everything, because he said, 'Am I immune now?'” she said.
Supermarkets, food manufacturers and restaurant chains under pressure from campaigners over their environmental impact urged Britain on Monday to strengthen a plan to stop tropical forests from being cut down to grow cocoa, palm oil and soy. With the food industry under growing scrutiny for its role in driving deforestation in countries such as Brazil and Indonesia, Britain is drawing up legislation to force the sector to tighten oversight of its supply chains. In an open letter, some 20 large companies welcomed the plans as a "step forward" but said "it's not currently envisioned to be enough to halt deforestation and we encourage the government to go further to ... address this issue."

Chris Christie (R) have all tested positive for the coronavirus.
David Benioff and D. B. Weiss said they changed the scene because Martin's books go on to show how Khal Drogo repeatedly assaulted Dany in the weeks after their wedding. Weiss said that turnaround didn't make sense without the context of Dany's point of view in the books. This change was the beginning of a heavily criticized pattern in "Game of Thrones" in which three of the main female characters were sexually assaulted during scenes that didn't happen (or happened differently) in the books.
