Roberts again sides with Left-wing justices against California church trying to reopen
By Duncan SmithIt's a good thing that President Donald Trump very likely will get another term because he'll need it to fill more expected Supreme Court vacancies and counter the evolving Leftism of Chief Justice John Roberts.Nominated to be the top SCOTUS justice by President George W. Bush, Roberts has been somewhat of a disappointment to conservatives who believe the only way to restore the originalist intent of the founders is by packing the Judicial Branch with constitutionalists.From his outrageous decision in changing the Obamacare law to make it a 'tax' that was thus permissible by Con...

Returning Jeff Blashill: Wings must be 'fluid, flexible' in long offseason
DETROIT — The Red Wings have to be fluid and flexible as they head into a long offseason — maybe as long as nine months.Coach Jeff Blashill talked about the need to be ready for whatever is ahead during Thursday’s Zoom call with the media, one day after general manager Steve Yzerman confirmed Blashill will return for a sixth season as the Wings’ head coach.“One thing that’s important in any of this, our decision making, is we’re fluid and flexible,” Blashill said. “Because we don’t really know exact dates, which you’d have for a normal year, we’ll have to be real good about being fluid and fle...

Anger, and one way of handling it
In these days of Covid-19, everybody’s got an opinion about the virus. Some say it’s the worst thing that’s happened to humankind, “Look how it’s upended our lives!”Others say Covid-19’s giving the earth a chance to breathe again, “Just one look at formerly air polluted cities and you know that Covid-19 may wear the face of evil but its intentions, in the earth’s defence, is good.” Also, say the same group, “Witness how it’s brought families together, all under one roof, experiencing quality time.”Ah-ha!“Now, there,” says my mate Barney, “lies the point of divergence. Under the same roof.” Not...

"Pop entertainment means nothing to me... Madonna’s good. She’s talented, she puts all kind of stuff together, she’s learned her thing... but it’s the kind of thing which takes years and years out of your life to be able to do. You’ve got to sacrifice a whole lot to do that. Sacrifice. If you want to make it big, you’ve got to sacrifice a whole lot." Bob Dylan is a Madonna fan.©2020 WENNProvided by SyndiGate Media Inc.
Low-cal craft beer becomes vital during quarantine. We taste 18 and pick the winners and losers.
First, let’s get the thing that needs to be said out of the way: These beers come with an asterisk. They are what they are. And what they are is low in calories and low in carbohydrates.If you want big, flavorful beer, this generally isn’t the place to look. If you want beer that doesn’t pile up quite as quickly at your waistline while tasting better than most options ending in “light,” this is indeed the place to look.Spurred by the continuing success of Michelob Ultra Light and the hard seltzer category — both of which grow at phenomenal rates — craft beer low in calories and carbs was alrea...
David Murphy: The Jordan-Pippen Bulls offer relevant lesson for the Embiid-Simmons Sixers
One thing I’ve noticed about the pandemic is that it has made people more appreciative of any chance they get to talk to another human being instead of the plants on their window sills.Another thing I’ve noticed is that, in those moments, there really isn’t much to talk about except for the pandemic. Perhaps it is this infinite loop of psychological turmoil that ESPN can thank for the record number of viewers that tuned in to watch The Last Dance between mid-April and mid-May.While it is fair to wonder about the objectivity of any documentary that was produced with the level of cooperation tha...

Society and the science of COVID-19
The adjective “novel” was the first thing that struck most people about the early name given to the coronavirus that causes the disease we now call COVID-19. That word, in its common usage, is a synonym for “new.” But only a few were sure that that was all the scientists at the World Health Organization meant to convey. As things have turned out, apart from “corona,” referring to the crown-like spikes that adorn the virus, the term “novel” has become this virus’ defining characteristic.To call it “novel” is a confession of the limits of science, a humbling recognition of the vastness and compl...
