    The last two years have been tough for just about everyone. President Joe Biden sees a silver lining to that, especially for recent college graduates. Speaking at the Naval Academy’s commencement ceremony in Annapolis on Friday, Biden said that the class of 2022 is particularly well-equipped to change the world due to the graduates’ proven ability to navigate uncertainty. “You faced added challenges to maintain a sense of mission and community and purpose when a global pandemic forced ... literally everything to change,” Biden said. That adaptability has prepared graduates to make sound, informed decisions in an “uncertain world,” Biden...

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Friday said he expects new laws to be enacted in response the shooting this week that killed 21 people at an elementary school. “Do we expect any laws to come out of this devastating crime? The answer is yes. Absolutely yes,” Abbott said. When asked about calling a special session for the legislature in response to the shooting, he said “all options are on the table.” Since the shooting, Republicans have focused their messaging on school security, while Democrats are advocating for more gun control.

    Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer convicted in the death of George Floyd, is seeking a new trial. In an 82-page brief filed Monday, Chauvin's attorney, William Mohrman, argued that it was impossible for his client to get a fair trial in Minneapolis amid the tense climate surrounding the proceedings and the pre-trial publicity. He said the media coverage of the case "glorified Floyd and demonized Chauvin."

As of late March, roughly 600 cases of it were identified.

    The Biden administration is delaying decisions on new oil and gas leases and permits after a Louisiana federal judge blocked officials from using higher cost estimates of climate change when making rules for polluting industries.The leasing pause is an unintended result of the Feb. 11 decision by U.S. District Judge James Cain, who sided with a group GOP-led states and argued that the Biden administration’s attempt to raise the real cost of climate change would hike energy costs and hurt state revenues from energy production.The ruling has prompted delays and uncertainty across at least four federal agencies that were using...

    Monday, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg responded to Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) maintaining that President Joe Biden’s so-called “Build Back Better” agenda was dead. Buttigieg told CNN’s “At This Hour” that the Biden administration can still do something “big” for the American people, although it would likely have a different name or vehicle.

    President Biden said Friday that Americans will have to learn to live with COVID-19 long-term but that things will “be better” — despite CDC Director Rochelle Walensky warning that US coronavirus cases are poised to hit new record highs almost two years into the pandemic. Biden erroneously told reporters his team is in the process of acquiring “500,000” tests to fight the highly contagious Omicron variant, misstating the actual figure of 500 million.

    A few months ago, when prices began to spike throughout the U.S. economy, Americans were told not to worry, it was just a temporary blip. On several occasions, President Biden and high-ranking officials in his administration claimed the current bout of inflation was “transitory” and would subside sooner rather than later. Yet, as the months tick by, inflation is getting worse, not better.

    In February of 2013, skywatchers around the world turned their attention toward asteroid 2012 DA14, a cosmic rock about 150 feet (50 meters) in diameter that was going to fly closer to Earth than the spacecraft that bring us satellite TV. Little did they realize as they prepared for the once-in-several-decades event that another bit of celestial debris was hurtling toward Earth, with a more direct heading. On Feb. 15, 2013, the Chelyabinsk meteor, a roughly 62-foot (19 meter)-diameter asteroid exploded over the city of Chelyabinsk, Russia, as it entered Earth's atmosphere at a shallow angle. The blast shattered windows...

    Though high vaccination rates may be spelling the end of the COVID-19 pandemic in Marin County, the county may never truly see the end of the disease, a public health official told the Board of Supervisors Tuesday.While only 68.3 percent of Californians are fully vaccinated, 90.1 percent of Marin County residents over the age of 12 are fully vaccinated, and 96.9 percent have received at least one dose.Still, Santora said, breakthrough cases reported in individuals with all three types of the vaccine administered in the United States — Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson — indicate that COVID-19’s presence in...

    The victory of the Taliban in Afghanistan, along with the sometimes-chaotic withdrawal of American forces from that country, has produced a gusher of conservative commentary comparing President Joe Biden to his 1970s Democratic predecessor, Jimmy Carter. "This is Joe Biden's Jimmy Carter Moment" the New York Post declared. "He is like Jimmy Carter on acid," Meghan McCain, the former TV host, announced on Twitter. The conservative Washington Examiner had two different columnists connect the legacies of Biden and Carter in recent weeks, but that was restrained compared to the Wall Street Journal, where opinion pieces identifying Biden-Carter similarities have become...
