COVID-19 Vaccines Work. Here’s the Real-World Proof

It’s one thing to test a vaccine, and another to see it in action in the real world. More than two months after the first vaccines were authorized in the U.K. and U.S., strong data have emerged showing that the shots are doing what they are supposed to do: protect people from COVID-19.

The Best Things To Do In Palm Springs/Palm Desert, 2021

If you’re going to be in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area you may be looking for something to do. We spent hours reading over reviews on Yelp so you don’t have to.

Russian Intelligence Cultivated Donald Trump For Decades, Says Former KGB Agent

The KGB Soviet spy agency and later Russian intelligence cultivated Donald Trump as an “asset” for 40 years, a former spy told The Guardian in a bombshell interview. And the Kremlin was delighted with the results, said former KGB major Yuri Shvets.

The strategy was typical: Focus on reasonably good prospects and hope one of the wooed Americans rises to a position of power or access that can be beneficial, said Shvets, who now lives in Virginia.

“People were recruited when they were just students and then they rose to important positions; something like that was happening with Trump,” explained Shvets, who worked as a KGB major in the 1980s in the U.S. with a cover job as a Washington correspondent for the Russian news agency Tass.

Sex and Cannabis | Ask a Scientist Ep. 2

When combining sex and cannabis, picking the right strain is important. If the effects are too heady, it might be difficult to enjoy the moment. Too sedating, and it might be hard to stay awake.

Florida has never seen a tax collector like Joel Greenberg.

Florida has never seen a tax collector like Joel Greenberg.

His Seminole County tax office was the only one in the state where employees were armed with pistols and body armor. He wore his own law enforcement badge and carried a sidearm at tax collector conferences. He let people pay property taxes with Bitcoin. He tweeted Islamophobic comments, installed a remote-controlled sprinkler system to spray petition gatherers he didn’t like and doled out fat contracts to his groomsmen shortly after winning the usually humdrum Orlando-area office with a campaign to stop “crony capitalism.”

Crowder, J. – NYJ (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Jamison Crowder, WR, New York Jets (6/23) Advice: At the time of publication, Jamison Crowder remains with the Jets, but there’s a chance he could be released or traded prior to training camp because his cap charge is a team-high $11.4 million, including a non-guaranteed $10 million base salary. The Jets also drafted his potential replacement in rookie receiver Elijah Moore, as well as adding Corey Davis and Keelan Cole this offseason. Now, if Crowder remains in New York, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him still be the Jets’ top slot receiver — and top receiver overall, like he was in 2020 despite appearing in just 12 games. He scored at least 11 PPR points in seven of those outings, and he’s a better Fantasy option in PPR. We’ll see how Crowder does with new quarterback Zach Wilson, but Crowder should be worth drafting with a mid-round pick in PPR and a late-round selection in non-PPR leagues. And even if Crowder changes teams, his Fantasy value will likely be the same given his ability to be one of the top slot receivers in the NFL over the past two seasons. (CBSSports.com)

Johnson, D. – Hou (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for David Johnson, RB, Houston Texans (6/23) Advice: Just about the only thing Johnson had going for him last season was that he had little competition for carries in an offense helmed by Deshaun Watson. Now he’s got Phillip Lindsay and Mark Ingram in the backfield with him and a ton of uncertainty about Watson’s status for the upcoming season. Johnson actually had a decent bounceback season in 2020 and could be a decent No. 2 Fantasy RB if he gets a similar role, with 12-ish carries and three-to-four targets per game. However, given the uncertainties around Houston’s offense, you can’t target him as anything more than a low-end No. 3 RB, preferably as bench depth. (CBSSports.com)

Packers reportedly agree to trade for Randall Cobb, fulfilling Aaron Rodgers’ request; Cobb tweets approval

The Green Bay Packers are completing a trade with the Houston Texans to acquire wide receiver Randall Cobb, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, fulfilling the request of quarterback Aaron Rodgers. This deal will become official once Rodgers’ revamped contract is official so that everything fits under the salary cap. Trey Wingo reported that Rodgers returning to the team was dependent upon the acquisition of Cobb. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jonathan Jones confirmed Wingo’s report adding that Chicago’s trade of wide receiver Anthony Miller to Houston was essentially completed with an understanding of upcoming events.

Dak Prescott – Dal (QB)

Dak Prescott Fantasy Football Outlook (2021) (7/7) Advice: Prescott was on pace to shatter records last season before his gruesome injury and it’s going to be fun to see what he can do again this year. With a litany of receiving weapons at his disposal, Prescott should consistently put up big numbers and we know that the passing volume is going to be there. As long as Dak is healthy heading into 2021, he’s absolutely going to produce for fantasy managers. (FantasyPros.com)

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.

With Delta surging, America is dangerously divided over vaccines

HEFLIN, Ala. — Peyton Thetford straddles two Americas.
Inside the intensive care unit at the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital, the 27-year-old nurse has witnessed a dramatic uptick in new COVID-19 patients struggling to breathe. But after grueling 12-hour shifts — moving patients from their backs to their stomachs and then turning them onto their sides every two hours to keep their oxygen levels up — he leaves the hospital and sees hardly anyone wearing masks or practicing social distancing.

“It’s kind of like the movie ‘Groundhog Day,’ where you wake up and everything’s the exact same and you can’t do anything to change it,” he said. “You’re just coming to work and watching people die.”

Rashod Bateman Draft Scout

The Gophers football program’s “Pro Day” has been scheduled for April 1 at the U’s indoor facility in Minneapolis, the NFL said Thursday. This date is especially important for aspiring NFL players this year due to the league’s pandemic-related decision to not host workouts at its scouting combine in Indianapolis. This will be the best chance for players – primarily receiver Rashod Bateman and cornerback Benjamin St-Juste – to display their speed, strength and agility in front of NFL front-office personnel. – Pioneer Press

Cowboys news: Tagging Dak Prescott twice and could Michael Gallup become trade bait

With the NFL franchise tag window opening Tuesday, the Cowboys can officially place the tag on Prescott for a second season. It has been highly expected Dallas will do so by the March 9 deadline, in hopes of coming to an agreement on a long-term deal that has eluded the two sides for the last two offseasons. NFL Network’s Ian Rappaport stated his belief, “The Cowboys do want to workout a long-term deal with Prescott before they have to tag him”.

Waffle and Berry

Yum! Located on the farthest left corner of the store when you enter the main doors. Friendly service and delicious fresh waffles. There’s outdoor seating area and they can also pack the ice cream and whipped cream separately if you want to take away. Love the one with fresh sweet berries. If you take it to go, you can warm the waffles up in the oven and it’s just as good as if you eat it right there. Highly recommended!

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.

Harry, N. – NE (WR)

2021 fantasy player outlook for N’Keal Harry, WR, New England Patriots (6/23) Advice: N’Keal Harry will likely be the No. 4 receiver in New England this year at best, and he’s not worth drafting in most Fantasy leagues. The Patriots added Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne this offseason, and along with Jakobi Meyers, all of them could be ahead of Harry on the depth chart. Since being selected in the first round of the NFL Draft in 2019, Harry has been a bust, and things aren’t likely to change for him in New England, which should remain a low-volume passing attack. Hopefully, Harry proves us wrong and could become a waiver-wire addition during the season, but we need to see it first over a solid stretch of games. (CBSSports.com)

Gaskin, M. – Mia (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Myles Gaskin, RB, Miami Dolphins (6/23) Advice: Myles Gaskin looks like the starting running back for the Dolphins again this year. If he stays in that role then he could be a standout Fantasy option in all leagues worth drafting as early as Round 4. In 2020, Gaskin was among the best waiver wire additions in all formats. He had eight games with at least 12 PPR points in the 10 games he appeared in, and he had six games with at least 19 total touches. Keep an eye on what happens with the Dolphins backfield prior to training camp, but Gaskin could be a No. 2 Fantasy running back if he’s the starter in Week 1. (CBSSports.com)

What I Heard in the White House Basement

I knew the president had clear and straightforward talking points—I’d written them.

One phone call changed my life.

On Thursday, July 25, 2019, I was seated at the table in one of the two Situation Rooms in the basement of the West Wing. The bigger room is famous from movies and TV shows, but this room is smaller, more typically businesslike: a long wooden table with 10 chairs, maybe a dozen more chairs against wood-paneled walls, and a massive TV screen. This was the room where President Barack Obama and his team watched a feed of the Osama bin Laden raid. This morning, the screen was off. We were all focused intently on the triangular conference-call speaker in the middle of the table. President Donald Trump’s communications team was placing a call to President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine, and we were there to listen.

Trump made congressional investigations almost impossible. This time is different.

The House of Representatives doesn’t exactly have a great record when it comes to fights with former President Donald Trump. Over the course of two years, Trump managed to scuttle, stymie or stonewall every investigation into his misconduct that congressional Democrats threw his way. That included not one but two impeachment inquiries, the biggest gun in Congress’ constitutional arsenal.

Trump counted on the separation of powers to shield him — the head of the executive branch — from legislative branch inquires. But the investigation that kicked off Tuesday has the potential to be different. This time around, the House may not be willing to take no for an answer.
