    AUSTIN (KXAN) — The honoring of a homecoming king and queen is a long standing tradition for many schools across the nation, but some schools are breaking tradition to be more inclusive. Westwood High School is dethroning the title of king and queen during its homecoming ceremony this year. “Our students brought it up and said, ‘Hey Austin High just did this, what do you think about us doing it?'” said Westwood High School Principal Mario Acosta. “I said, ‘Hey if that is where we want to go, and that is where the student body is interested in going, I...

    Texas Sen. John Cornyn became the latest GOP senator to distance himself from President Trump this weekend ahead of a surprisingly tight reelection battle. In an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram editorial board published on Sunday, Cornyn said that he has confronted Trump privately, rather than publicly, on disagreements over issues such as budget deficits and debt, tariffs, trade agreements and border security.

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie admitted it was a “big mistake” to let his “guard down” by going mask-free at the White House event where he contracted the virus. In his first televised appearance since his coronavirus diagnosis, Christie, 58, said he had a “false sense of security” in believing that everyone at the event for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett had been tested for COVID-19. “For seven months, I was able to avoid the virus in one of the worst-hit states in the country, New Jersey,” Christie said on “Good Morning America” Friday

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has its work cut out investigating how the virus spread and infected the President. But the experts in the cheap seats have fingered the culprit: Abbott’s ID Now test. The White House uses the portable device to screen guests because it can return results in 15 minutes. Many experts who have suggested that businesses and schools use the Abbott test now complain it is less accurate than PCR lab tests and not reliable enough to identify asymptomatic cases. But lab tests typically take a day or longer to return results. Someone who tests...

    House Democrats are launching an investigation into President Trump’s treatment of the Secret Service during his bout with the coronavirus. Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, accused Trump of disregarding the safety of his protective detail when he left Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for a short drive in his limousine to greet supporters who were outside the facility. Thompson called Trump’s Sunday night trip a “joyride” that risked the health and safety of the agents who had to accompany him on the trip. “So we can know more about how these events have affected the...

    I’m watching Comey Senate Hearings. Comey says he still believes Trump is a Russian Agent (with no evidence) and the Republicans, some of who told fond Jim Comey stories of their time together, said they are “disappointed” in Comey! Disappointed! This is worse than a disaster, Graham is doing painfully bad acting, and this is just over the top bad.
  • Herd immunity to COVID-19 and pre-existing immune responses

    Watts Up With That? ^ | 09-22-2020 | Nic Lewis
    I showed in my May 10th article Why herd immunity to COVID-19 is reached much earlier than thought that inhomogeneity within a population in the susceptibility and in the social-connectivity related infectivity of individuals would reduce, in my view probably very substantially, the herd immunity threshold (HIT), beyond which an epidemic goes into retreat. I opined, based on my modelling, that the HIT probably lay somewhere between 7% and 24%, and that evidence from Stockholm County suggested it was around 17% there, and had been reached. I then showed in a July 27th update article[1] that mounting evidence supported my...
  • Did Global Warming Play A Significant Role in the Recent Northwest Wildfires?

    Watts Up With That? ^ | 09/22/2020 | Charles Rotter
    A number of groups and individuals are claiming that the recent major wildfires in the Pacific Northwest are predominantly or significantly the result of climate change produced by increasing greenhouse gases. In fact, many have called these conflagrations “climate fires.” Did global warming (a.k.a. climate change) have a significant impact on the Northwest wildfires of the past few weeks? Consider the key fires in the Northwest U.S. this month: the huge, rapidly expanding fires on the western slopes of the Oregon Cascades. The fires that not only burned hundreds of thousands of acres, but produced most of the smoke that...

    It seems there is suddenly a movement in media to silence anyone who speaks out against George Soros—and, specifically, his funding of radical prosecutors seeking to change the criminal justice system by simply ignoring certain crimes. This happened to me personally this week while I was being interviewed on Fox’s Outnumbered. When I brought up Soros’s plan to get pro-criminal, anti-police prosecutors elected across the country, two of the show’s participants interrupted me and forcefully asserted that Soros was not involved. ... Soros’s plan to elect these prosecutors has been well documented ... There are plenty of specific examples of...

    A 19-year-old Florida woman urinated in front of a police car and offered oral sex to an officer to get her confiscated Juul e-cigarette back, authorities say. Madison Ann Bryant was charged on Sunday with disorderly intoxication, a misdemeanor and offering a bribe to a public servant, a felony, according to The Smoking Gun. Sheriff's deputies found Bryant around 2.20am sitting on the median of the US 27 highway in Leesburg, a city 45 miles from Orlando. Bryant said she exited a nearby truck after getting into a fight with the driver, her boyfriend, about 'their relationship issues.' Deputies spoke...
