    Makers of mobile game Plague Inc. say the game is no longer available in the China App Store. In a blog post Thursday, Ndemic Creations said the app, which lets players simulate and strategize the spread of disease globally, was taken down because it "includes content that is illegal in China as determined by the Cyberspace Administration of China." "It's not clear to us if this removal is linked to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak that China is facing," the company said in the post. "However, Plague Inc.'s educational importance has been repeatedly recognized by organizations like the CDC." In 2013,...

Twenty-three precincts were recounted after the campaigns for Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg made the request. The party hasn't said when it'll release the final count.
  • Elizabeth Warren wants to defund Trump’s border wall and use the money to fight coronavirus

    CNBC ^ | 2/27/20 | Jacob Pramuk
    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., unveiled a bill Thursday to divert money from President Donald Trump’s border wall to the U.S. coronavirus response. As concerns rise about the outbreak spreading in the U.S., the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate argued the $1.25 billion in emergency funding sought by the president is inadequate. With the proposal, Warren not only aims to confront a budding public health crisis but also looks to knock a Trump policy she has called racist and divisive. “The coronavirus outbreak poses serious health, diplomatic, and economic threats to the United States, and we must be prepared to confront it...

    (CNN) Some national and state Democratic party leaders concerned about Sen. Bernie Sanders' candidacy are willing to risk a messy, brokered national convention this summer, which could be potentially damaging to the party, to prevent the self-described Democratic socialist from becoming the nominee, The New York Times reported. Of the 93 superdelegates the Times interviewed, a majority expressed an "overwhelming opposition" to naming Sanders the party's nominee if he wins a plurality of pledged delegates before the Democratic National Convention in July. The vast majority also predicted that no candidate would secure the party's nomination during the primaries and that...

    As the Wuhan coronavirus continues to spread like wildfire across the globe, a National Taiwan University (NTU) professor on Saturday (Feb. 22) said the virus is likely man-made, based on its unusual structure. At a seminar on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) hosted by the Taiwan Public Health Association at NTU, Fang Chi-tai (方啟泰), a professor at NTU's College of Public Health, addressed the many theories circulating that the virus somehow leaked from or was released from the Wuhan Institute of Virology biosafety level 4 laboratory (BSL-4 Lab). He said that what is known is that there are many deadly viruses...

    A new proposal on the docket in Boston on Wednesday could determine how much residents pay for parking tickets. The Boston City Council was to meet at noon Wednesday to discuss new legislation which will include a hearing order for potential income-adjusted fines on parking violations. Recently elected city councilor at-large Julia Mejia filed the hearing order on Monday and has been vocal about the idea on Twitter. "I am introducing legislation on income-adjusting parking tickets so low-income families don’t have to decide between paying a parking ticket or putting food on their table," she wrote.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 2/26/20 | Anthony Leonardi
    A group of Sen. Bernie Sanders supporters attempted to intimidate an Illinois Democratic congressional candidate into supporting the socialist's agenda. The Vermont senator's supporters on Monday live-streamed their activity on social media while Betsy Dirksen Londrigan concluded a campaign appearance in Champaign, Illinois. Following the event, the group challenged Londrigan to debate Illinois socialist candidate Stefanie Smith. "Where did she go?" one person in the video can be heard asking. "She's going out. Let's go." The Sanders supporters then surrounded Londrigan's vehicle, telling each other to "block her in" and to "get by her window!" One of the agitators can...

    Charleston, South Carolina got a glimpse of its potential future in September when Hurricane Dorian grazed the South Carolina coast, bringing the three-headed monster of heavy rain, storm surge and extreme high tides with it. Tuesday night, seven Democratic candidates for President will take the stage in Charleston and try to make their cases for how they’ll stem the intensification of climate change, which is fueling that future marked by increased risk of powerful storms and chronic flooding across the Southeast. It’s been less than a week since the last Democratic debate in Nevada, where six candidates - former New...

    Leaks have emerged of classified comments that an American intelligence official made to the House Intelligence Committee about efforts by Russia to "help" President Trump win the 2020 presidential election. It's the latest in a string of alleged illegal leaks of classified information from Democratic committee members, including Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif. It is long overdue for the Trump administration to stop these leaks by cutting off Schiff’s access to sensitive intelligence. According to House Republican intelligence committee members and Trump officials, there is no evidence for the intelligence official’s claim that Russia wants Trump to win the election and...

I am so sorry.” The conclusion of the video shows Pugh, with her hands clasped in front of her face, with a voice-over of her saying: “When I think about me and my capacity and my capabilities and all...

    MOSCOW—The Russians were excited once again for a U.S. presidential election in which they could interfere to sow division and discord, but their excitement soon turned to dismay when they found an election already too chaotic for them to follow. “Everyone is ready to tear each other apart in the Democratic primary,” commented Aleksei Teplov, a Russian hacker. “It seems like if we tried to add any more chaos, it would just be a drop in the ocean.” Teplov described how anytime they tried to get people to turn against each other, it was always overshadowed by a grassroots campaign...

    WILMINGTON - The two Republican candidates squaring off in the primary race for District 20 are at odds over one of the candidate’s YouTube videos, which portrayed his female employees wrestling in a small tub of grits, apparently to secure a promotion. **SNIP** Prior to their removal, several videos - narrated by LaNasa - appeared to show two of LaNasa’s female employees, one clothed and one wearing a bikini bathing suit, wrestling in a tub of grits.

    **SNIP** Radical optimism echoes an organization the authors formed, Global Optimism, to combat pessimism and denialism. Endless abundance is the sense that there are resources enough for all, to combat competitiveness and tribalism. Radical regeneration means caring for both nature and oneself, to combat exploitation and burnout. Then the authors get to action. “We have discussed the mindset everyone needs to cultivate in order to meet the global challenge of the climate crisis, but on its own, this is not enough,” they write. “For change to become transformational, our change in mindset must manifest in our actions.” **SNIP** 1 Let...

    Q is the result of the sacrifices and commitment of countless patriots to win back our captured country from the Deep State and achieve the transformation President Trump promised in this campaign video. President Trump has said the awakening of the public is key to this transformation. Q describes this awakening as follows: "The Great Awakening ('Freedom of Thought’), was designed and created not only as a backchannel to the public (away from the longstanding ‘mind’ control of the corrupt & heavily biased media) to endure future events through transparency and regeneration of individual thought (breaking the chains of...

    Just did a quick check on the four tv stations in Miami. If you didn't know, Crazy Bernie praised the communist regime in Cuba on 60 Minutes. Lots of people fled Cuba for south Florida. You might think the local Miami media would be interested in such a story, but not so much. The CBS station did cover it--after all, 60 Minutes is on CBS. The NBC station WTVJ also has a story on the web site mentioning Bernie's dumb remarks. ABC and Fox have not.
