The Vintage Whiskey & Cigar Bar Opens in South End

I’ve smoked six cigars in the past 28 years and after the first four, I swore I would never do it again. That is, until I ended up at a VIP/media preview of The Vintage Whiskey & Cigar Bar in South End, where I figured I would indulge in another stogie just for the experience of it all. Maybe it’s because I am extremely sophisticated as a 28-year-old, or maybe it’s because The Vintage’s house blend — by cigar curator Giannis Koutsoupias — is of some extraordinary cultivation, but at the point when I should have left, I ordered another.

We’ve Unmasked the Oath Keepers’ January 6 “Operations Leader”

When members of the far-right militia network known as the Oath Keepers stormed the US Capitol on January 6, they were supposed to be under the command of a 37-year-old Black man from a poor neighborhood in Indianapolis—who says he doesn’t support Donald Trump. That man is Michael Simmons, an Army veteran who served in the Iraq War, and who currently faces the possibility of federal charges for his actions on January 6.

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.

Paradise Air Hawaii

This is an awesome experience for anyone wanting to do something thrilling and different. I was looking for something fun to do to get out of the house during the Covid 19 pandemic and I found Paradise Air Hawaii. It’s such an awesome thing to do. You and your pilot will take off together and fly around Kaena Point and the North Shore area by Dillingham. They will let you fly the aircraft yourself the entire time if you really want to. They really know what they are doing and you never feel unsafe. You are masked up most of the time and while you are in the air you have a visor over your face so you can pull your mask down and smile for photos and videos. If your local or students you can get photos or videos included in your package for free. It’s a great deal. It’s a much longer experience than skydiving and you are literally flying. Definitely check this place out and give it a try.

Cole Sr., K. – NYJ (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Keelan Cole, WR, New York Jets (6/23) Advice: There was a stretch in 2020 when Cole looked like the Jaguars’ No. 1 receiver, and it’s not out of the question he could be that for the Jets in 2021. But it’s pretty unlikely, given the presence of Denzel Mims, Corey Davis and Jamison Crowder. Cole will likely be just a role player for the Jets, and is not worth targeting outside of deeper PPR formats. (CBSSports.com)

Edwards-Helaire, C. – KC (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Kansas City Chiefs (6/23) Advice: After sky-high expectations in 2020, Clyde Edwards-Helaire returns as a post-hype breakout candidate with top-20 appeal in 2021. He actually started off his rookie season with some good numbers, averaging 11.7 non-PPR/15.1 PPR points per game in his first six. Then the Chiefs acquired Le’Veon Bell … and gave some work to fellow back Darrel Williams … and then Edwards-Helaire got hurt. No wonder his playing time, touches and Fantasy totals shriveled. So why trust him now? Despite Williams sticking around and the Chiefs adding long-time pass-down specialist Jerick McKinnon, Edwards-Helaire is still considered Kansas City’s best back. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him fall into 15 touches per week, and it would be most excellent if he could pick up the short-yardage/goal-line role he barely had last year. A much-improved offensive line and a fairly good schedule also helps. Edwards-Helaire is worth the late second-round price tag. (CBSSports.com)

Trump pumps $348,000 into Ohio GOP primary after Texas loss to avoid going 0-2

WASHINGTON — Former President Donald Trump’s political action committee bought $348,081 worth of advertising in the Republican congressional primary in Ohio’s 15th District, where a Trump-backed candidate is facing a crowded GOP field.

The large, last-minute ad purchase by the Make America Great Again Action PAC was made Tuesday, the same day another Trump-backed House candidate, Susan Wright, lost in a special election in Texas’ 6th Congressional District.

Rankings – Top Rookie Wide Receivers of 2021 [Pre-Draft]

We’re still a few weeks away from full-on NFL Draft season, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t start thinking about our dynasty fantasy football teams with NFL free agency kicking off in less than a month.

I broke down my top-five list at the wide receiver position in January, but it’s time to dig a little deeper. For those looking to go beyond even what we’ll cover here, PFF’s 2021 NFL Draft Guide has you covered — the current iteration breaks down the top 200 college prospects, and it will be updated throughout the offseason leading up to the NFL Draft in April.

For now, let’s dig into the top 15 wide receivers for dynasty fantasy football leagues in 2021. These rankings will certainly be affected by players’ landing spots, but it’s a place to start for those who might be trading rookie draft picks in the dynasty offseason.

Mayfield, B. – Cle (QB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Baker Mayfield, QB, Cleveland Browns (6/23) Advice: For Fantasy purposes Baker Mayfield is a No. 2 quarterback best rostered in Dynasty leagues or leagues where you can start more than one quarterback. Mayfield’s efficiency rebounded in his first year under Kevin Stefanski, but Stefanski’s run-heavy scheme severely limits a pocket passer’s upside. Mayfield threw 30 or fewer passes in 10 of 16 games and only topped 300 yards passing twice in 2020. It’s possible he could be your best bet as a backup, but only if the schedule lines him up for a shootout in your starter’s bye week. (CBSSports.com)

Toney, K. – NYG (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Kadarius Toney, WR, New York Giants (6/23) Advice: The Giants selected rookie receiver Kadarius Toney at No. 20 overall in the first round from Florida, and he will look to make an impact in a crowded receiving corps in 2021. Toney is worth drafting with a late-round flier in all seasonal Fantasy leagues, and he’s a second-round selection in rookie-only drafts for Dynasty formats. Toney might not make a huge Fantasy impact as a rookie since the Giants have Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton at receiver, and Toney will likely open the season fourth on the depth chart. But Toney will eventually take over for Shepard in the slot, although that might not happen until 2022. He’s a tremendous playmaker, and hopefully Toney can connect with quarterback Daniel Jones right away. If that happens, Toney can be a star. (CBSSports.com)

I RAN THE WHITE HOUSE PANDEMIC OFFICE. TRUMP CLOSED IT.

When President Trump took office in 2017, the White House’s National Security Council Directorate for Global Health Security and Biodefense survived the transition intact. Its mission was the same as when I was asked to lead the office, established after the Ebola epidemic of 2014: to do everything possible within the vast powers and resources of the U.S. government to prepare for the next disease outbreak and prevent it from becoming an epidemic or pandemic.
