‘This is how I’m going to die’: Officers describe horrors of Jan. 6 riot

Four police officers who defended the Capitol from a Jan. 6 riot by Donald Trump supporters spoke out Tuesday during the first hearing of the select committee investigating the attack, sharing harrowing details of their physical and mental trauma.

As the riot fades from public memory amid a new wave of Republican revisionism, select panel members aimed to cast the hearing — the first time Congress has heard publicly from law enforcement on the front lines of the response to Jan. 6 — as a vivid reminder of what happened.

Jim Cramer reacts to Apple car rumors: ‘The upside could be enormous’

“An electric vehicle merely gives you one more reason to own Apple, not trade it,” the “Mad Money” host said. “Hopefully, everyone will forget this story tomorrow and the stock will sell off, giving you another chance to buy into weakness.”

On Monday, Reuters published an article reporting that the iPhone manufacturer could build a car, potentially with its own battery technology, by 2024. Investors responded the day after trading the stock up almost 3% to a $131.88 close, giving it a more than $2.25 trillion market cap, the largest valuation on the market.

The Bachelorette: Why Blake Moynes Preferred Dating Tayshia Over Clare

The Bachelorette 2020 was a season like no other. First, the season got postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Secondly, once the season began, filming was seriously altered to comply with safety guidelines to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. To top it all off, leading lady Clare Crawley fell in love with Dale Moss only weeks into the season, paving the way for a second lead: Tayshia Adams. It was a lot.

Video: Voter Fraud Claims

Our fact-checking collaboration with CNN’s Jake Tapper resumes this week with a video looking at bogus claims about voter fraud made by President Donald Trump and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Campbell, P. – Ind (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Parris Campbell, WR, Indianapolis Colts (6/23) Advice: Since the Colts selected him 59th overall in 2019, Campbell has managed to play in just nine games due to injuries. In 2020, it was a knee injury suffered in the second game of the year that kept him out the rest of the season. You can still look back at his excellent senior season at Ohio State (90 catches, 1,063 yards and 12 touchdowns) for a sense of what he might be capable of, but unfortunately we just haven’t gotten to see much of that in the NFL so far. Campbell should go undrafted in most leagues, but he could be worth a late-round flier in deeper leagues as a post-hype sleeper. (CBSSports.com)

Claypool, C. – Pit (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Chase Claypool, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers (6/23) Advice: You shouldn’t count on 11 touchdowns on 72 touches again in 2021 from Chase Claypool. And with JuJu Smith-Schuster back, you may not get a big touch increase either. That makes Claypool a No. 3 receiver best avoided until Round 7 at the earliest. As long as he retains his red zone role he’ll have big weekly upside, but he’ll be more valuable where catches don’t count and most valuable in Best Ball leagues. The future is still bright for the young receiver and he’s a solid No. 2 receiver in Dynasty. (CBSSports.com)

Beer Lab HI

Just as awesome as the one on University. Staff is beyond helpful and friendly. Excellent selection of beer to choose from and plenty of seating. Wasn’t very crowded for a Sunday afternoon. Will stop again when I’m near this mall.

How Has President Obama Found Post-White House Life?

James Corden welcomes 44th President of the United States Barack Obama to the show, and the two recall some of First Lady Michelle Obama’s past adventures on the show. After, James asks the former president about what his life has been after his second term ended and what sense he gets from young people and how they feel about public service. And the “Promised Land” admits he hasn’t made his famous chili in nearly 20 years – he’s been a little busy for the kitchen.

Third Wave Automation raises $40M to bring its autonomous forklifts to warehouses

Fresh off a strategic partnership with Toyota Industries Corporation to build an autonomous forklift, Third Wave Automation has snagged another $40 million from investors.

The California-based startup, which was founded in 2018, has raised $40 million in a Series B round led by Norwest Venture Partners, including participation from prior investors Innovation Endeavors and Eclipse, along with Toyota Ventures, according to a Form D filed with regulators. Matt Howard, general partner at Norwest Venture Partners, will join Third Wave’s board of directors.

Milton Friedman on Guaranteed Income / Negative Income Tax

Milton Friedman supported a guaranteed minimum income with a Negative Income Tax (NIT). While NIT and Universal Basic Income (UBI) are both guaranteed minimum incomes, the difference is a UBI goes to everyone automatically, while a NIT is distributed based on income. That’s why I made sure to refer to Friedman’s NIT as a guaranteed income rather than UBI. Even though they are very similar and the arguments for universal basic income and negative income tax are nearly the same.

The new politics of climate change

A billionaire, a novelist and a professor all write a book about climate change. 

That may sound like the start of a joke but it is not, especially for philanthropist Bill Gates and author Jonathan Franzen. Their books have come out just as Michael E Mann, one of the world’s best known climate scientists, has published a book accusing each of abetting new forces of inactivism slowing efforts to tackle climate change.

How The Gaza Violence Marked A Shift In The American Political Debate Over Israel

For decades, Democrats and Republicans alike have stood by Israel, almost unconditionally, insisting the country has a right to defend itself.

President Biden did that throughout the recent conflict as Hamas militants fired thousands of rockets into Israel. Now, Biden has pledged to help replenish Israel’s air defense system while promising humanitarian aid to Gaza, which was pounded by fierce Israeli airstrikes before a cease-fire took effect early Friday.

But this latest violence marked a shift in the American political debate over Israel. The criticism from the left was louder than in the past, with progressives pressuring Biden to speak up forcefully in support of Palestinians, who saw a far greater civilian death toll in recent days.

Fantasy fallout: Bengals release RB Giovani Bernard

With Bernard gone, it appears that Samaje Perine will get the first crack at the backup job after averaging 4.8 yards per carry on 63 attempts for three touchdowns. But Trayveon Williams also has a shot at picking up work. Of course, the team could also draft a running back to compete with those two. Perine did impress the team though, and if Mixon were to have injury trouble again, he’s first in line at the moment.

Etienne Jr., T. – Jax (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Travis Etienne, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars (6/23) Advice: The Jaguars selected Travis Etienne 25th overall in the NFL Draft, and, while he should be a very good Fantasy player in the long run, this might not have been the best landing spot for his immediate value. Etienne figures to play plenty but will split time with James Robinson and is probably more of a fourth- or fifth-round pick in re-draft leagues. Obviously, there is huge upside here, because Etienne is a big-time playmaker in all facets of the game, averaging 7.2 yards per carry and 11.3 per reception over his four years at Clemson. The good news is that he’ll be lining up next to his college QB, Trevor Lawrence, and that combination could be especially fruitful in the passing game, which is likely where Etienne will have to make his primary impact, at least at first. Robinson figures to see most of the early-down work, with Etienne handling a lot of the third downs (and occasionally splitting out wide or lining up alongside Robinson in two-RB sets), and he can be a viable Fantasy starter in that role, maybe as a better Nyheim Hines. Etienne will cost a lot more than Hines on Draft Day — and in Dynasty leagues, he’s probably a top-five pick in most formats — because his upside is so much higher. Maybe it’s a situation where he starts out slow but eventually becomes the No. 1 RB for Jacksonville — and a league-winner for your squad. (CBSSports.com)

GOP Rep. Says ‘Nobody Actually Believes’ Election Was Stolen From Donald Trump

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) said Wednesday that the vast majority of his Republican colleagues don’t believe ex-President Donald Trump’s election lies, even though they may continue to peddle them in public.

“Save one or two maybe out here, nobody ― and I think it’s very important to repeat ― nobody actually believes the election was stolen from Donald Trump, but a lot of them are happy to go out and say it was,” Kinzinger told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

Javonte Williams Highlights

North Carolina RB Javonte Williams
Junior 5’10 220 lbs

North Carolina RB Javonte Williams had a record-breaking 2020 season despite splitting carries with another NFL prospect in Michael Carter. Williams rushed for 1,140 yards & 19 total TDs. Williams is built like a tank. He’s a strong back who is still shifty and quick, which he showed many times like his “beast mode” run against Miami.

Waller dedicates big game to ex-teammate who died Wednesday

Raider’s tight end Darren Waller wasn’t sure he wanted to take the field Thursday, a day after friend and former teammate Lorenzo Taliaferro died. He decided to play in Taliaferro’s honor and provided quite a tribute. Waller caught nine passes for 150 yards and a touchdown.
