    President Joe Biden might think he is the president of "unity," but this is another high-pressure election year, and legal expert Alan Dershowitz on Newsmax predicts a "summer of violence," with more unconstitutional abuses of power and politicized justice in America. "I'm afraid we will have a summer of violence if the Supreme Court overrules Roe v. Wade, and we will see the Justice Department and this administration selectively enforcing the law," Dershowitz told "Saturday Agenda." "You won't find congressional committees controlled [by] Democrats evaluating whether there was incitement, whether by Black Lives Matter — or women's groups." Dershowitz denounced...

    As the US marks Memorial Day weekend and the unofficial start of summer, the seven-day average for COVID-19 cases in the U.S. are more than six times what they were a year ago. The Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center showed a seven-day average of 119,725 cases as of Saturday. That figure held at 17,887 cases on May 28 of last year. Despite the rising infection rate, COVID-related deaths were down from last year, a sign of increased immunity through vaccines and prior infections, along with wider availability of treatments.
  • Consumers Face Summer Of Hell As Power Bill Costs Set To Jump

    The last thing consumers want to hear is an increase in power costs this summer following the news last week of rising threats of rolling blackouts across half of the US. Tight supplies of natural gas, crude, and coal have pushed up residential electricity rates this year. A nationwide weather outlook for this summer forecasts extreme heat — all of this will force households to crank up their air conditions, resulting in oversized power demand that could stress national grids. Bloomberg cites new data from Barclays Plc that says monthly power bills could be 40% more than last year’s. The...
  • One Billion People At Risk Of Power Blackouts As Global Grids Stretched

    This summer, power grids worldwide won’t produce enough electricity to meet the soaring demand, threatening more than one billion people with rolling blackouts. Grids are stretched thin by fossil fuel shortages,/B>, drought and heatwaves, commodity disruptions and soaring prices due to the war in Ukraine, and the failed green energy transition where grid operators retired too many fossil fuel generation plants. Combine this all together, and a perfect storm of blackouts threatens much of the Northern Hemisphere. The power crisis, affecting a large swath of the world and top economies, could be less than a month away when summer begins...
  • Drought Will Impact Pacific Northwest This Summer, Experts Warn

    05/24/2022 9:14:29 AM PDT · by blam · 27 replies
    Drought is expected to impact much of the Pacific Northwest this summer, including areas in eastern Washington, southern Oregon and southern Idaho, according to climatology and water officials. A recent map from the U.S. Drought Monitor shows that about 54% of Washington is experiencing abnormally dry or drought conditions, with about 25% of the state in severe or extreme drought, the Yakima Herald-Republic reported. Washington and Oregon recorded above-normal precipitation levels and below-normal temperatures in April, which brought gains to snowpack in some areas. But state climatology experts predict it will be warmer and drier than normal in summer months....

    Tens of millions of Americans could be thrown into a summer of hell as a megadrought, heatwaves, and reduced power generation could trigger widespread rolling electricity blackouts from the Great Lakes to the West Coast, according to Bloomberg, citing a new report from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), a regulatory body that manages grid stability. NERC warned power supplies in the Western US could be strained this summer as a historic drought reduces hydroelectric power generation due to falling reservoir levels and what’s expected to be an unseasonably hot summer. Compound the hellacious weather backdrop with grids decommissioning...
  • J.P. Morgan Predicts ‘Cruel Summer’ of Gas Prices Above $6

    The U.S. national average for regular gas could top $6.00 per gallon in the coming months, J.P. Morgan predicted this week in a report titled “Cruel Summer.” The national average for regular gas has continued to climb for ten consecutive days, standing at $4.589 on Thursday. That reflects a 2 cent increase over the last day, 17 cent increase over the last week, and a nearly 49 cent increase over the last month. What is more, J.P. Morgan predicts that it will only worsen in the coming months, topping $6.00 per gallon nationally. “With expectations of strong driving demand …...

    Israeli researchers are warning the world will witness another coronavirus outbreak this summer with either a new strain or a return of the Delta variant. A peer-reviewed modeling study published last week found while Delta eliminated the variants that preceded it, Omicron did not do the same for Delta. The study from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) isolated variants in wastewater, indicating where the virus is still active.
  • Biden to allow E15 ethanol-blended gas to be sold throughout the US this summer to counter soaring fuel prices

    President Joe Biden will allow E15 ethanol-blended gas to be sold throughout the US this summer, the White House said Tuesday, as part of measures to tackle soaring fuel prices in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. E15 gasoline, which is gasoline blended with 15% ethanol, is banned in most of the US during the summer because of air pollution concerns. But the White House said that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is planning to issue a national emergency waiver which would allow E15 to be sold between June 1 and September 15.

    Fruits of the Midi, Renoir, 1881‘Tis the harvest season: eggplant, peppers, tomatoes – all at their peak. Here’s a dinner idea using some of them. It’s a concept more than a recipe and can be modified to taste and ingredients on hand. It’s a bit of a mashup of two of our favorite pasta dishes - garlic sausage linguine and penne with eggplant - from The Earle in Ann Arbor. It’s been our go-to favorite since 1980 and until last year was still headed by the original chef and sommelier. But hey, 40 year years on and I guess you...

I would love to push through as the last bloom of the season, luxuriating in the sand’s warmth accumulated over the long summer. Lathyrus Japanicus, wild, common name: Beach PeaBut I’m a bit spent for that. I will just sow a few seeds in the sand and trust that they will germinate in a better clime. Somewhere, sometime.

Despite having strewn little hints and clues of her intent throughout the long hot days and nights she catches you off guard when you see her astride the window, awaiting a strong wind to carry her aloft for points south. And while it feels like betrayal it is simply the fulfillment of her promise: to nurture, warm and fortify you well enough for what lies ahead. So you can thrive while she’s gone and endure well enough until such time as she returns with all...

    After more than six months of work combating the coronavirus, negotiating a bipartisan infrastructure bill and repairing the U.S. image abroad, President Joe Biden should be heading out on vacation and a traditional August break from Washington. But with legislative work on the infrastructure bill keeping the Senate in session for a second straight weekend, and likely through next week, Biden hasn’t gone far — just home to Wilmington, Delaware, as he has done often since taking office. “Every president is always working no matter where they are,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said, explaining that presidents can’t ever...

    A coronavirus outbreak linked to a Cape Cod summer vacation hotspot prompted local health officials on Monday to institute a new mask advisory, a report said. Residents in Provincetown, Massachusetts, are being advised to wear the face coverings indoors following the cluster of 132 cases that is believed to have stemmed from Fourth of July celebrations, NBC Boston reported. Many of those infected are fully vaccinated and 89 of them are Massachusetts residents, the report said. As part of the advisory, passed Monday by the Provincetown Board of Health, high-density venues are urged to enforce vaccination status upon entry, the...

  • Embrace the Escapism of a Good Summer Read

    07/04/2021 3:35:22 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 1 replies ^ | July 4, 2021 | Salena Zito
    Whether your vacation is in your backyard, on a sandy beach, or camping in a majestic national park, the summer read is as essential a part of your getaway as your sunscreen, fishing rod or road atlas. Americans crave tales of adventure, mystery, love and tragedy as a summer rite of passage. The more noble prefer to dive into highbrow literature, but many are looking for that page-turner escapist novel that twists the emotions but ultimately lands the reader safely with an ending that delivers redemption. This is one of the few touchstones left in our culture in which you...

It is a lovely, ancient rhythm, you just need to get used to it. One way or another we all do. My languid day begins at the dentist so I bid you adieu for the time being.

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said Friday on MSNBC’s “Hallie Jackson Reports” that the Biden administration has “to deliver this summer” with an infrastructure package passed through Congress. Jackson said, “You have progressives in the words of Politico, losing their minds over President Biden waiting to get some kind of a deal with Republicans. On the other side, you have Senator Joe Manchin making very clear with NBC News this morning. He is not down to go it alone. He wants Republican support. If this June 7th deadline, if you will, comes and goes and Republicans aren’t where Democrats want them...

  • The CDC's Guidance for Summer Camps Is Insane

    Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new guidance to help summer camps mitigate their coronavirus risk. Given that summer camps involve both children and the outdoors—two factors that render COVID-19 significantly less worrisome—and will be opening in the wake of widespread vaccination, one might have expected the CDC to depart from its characteristic over-caution.
