    In a surprising turn of events, the ‘bittwersweet’ triumph by the Japanese Space Agency JAXA has taken a turn for the better, as the SLIM spacecraft has regained power. The module performed a historical and very precise lunar landing a a little over a week ago, but ran out of electricity because it ‘ended up upside down in the moon surface’, with solar panels facing the wrong direction. But on late Sunday (28), JAXA finally re-established communication with its Smart Lander for Investigating Moon (SLIM). The spacecraft touchdown made Japan the fifth country to put a spacecraft on the moon,...

Fox News’s Sean Hannity, also airing in the 9:00pm slot drew 2.1 million viewers the same night. The entirety of the prime time line up for MSNBC and Fox News significantly outperformed the DeSantis town hall, with the Florida Governor drawing about half the viewers as the far-left conspiracy theorist Joy Reid.The DeSantis campaign has been plagued by an inability to connect with...

    Mayor Adams admitted Tuesday that his trip to Latin America may not have actually worked in convincing migrants to stop coming to the Big Apple, which was a key rationale offered by City Hall for making the sojourn. Hizzoner’s remarks came just hours after The Post and other outlets published interviews with migrants in the region who are desperate for jobs and were either unaware the mayor’s visit or undeterred from making the dangerous trip northward to the United States. “Was it successful 100%? I don’t know that. We’re not going to know,” he said when asked if he did...

It was a clear stand against presidential nominee DeSantis, whose legislation and legal feud with Disney sparked LGBTQ+ rights organizations to issue travel warnings on the Sunshine State. ...

Ron DeSantis’ handpicked board overseeing Disney World’s government services is gearing up for a potential legal battle over a 30-year development agreement they say effectively renders them powerless to manage the entertainment giant’s future growth in Central Florida. Ahead of an expected state takeover, the Walt Disney Co. quietly pushed through the pact and restrictive covenants that would tie the hands of future board members for decades, according to a legal presentation by the district’s lawyers on Wednesday. The Central Florida Tourism Oversight District’s new Board of Supervisors voted to bring in outside legal firepower...

    14 min clip from Viva/Robert Barnes podcast. Barnes explains why DeSantis is running for president, donors convinced him Trump would be kneecapped by numerous indictments (most have failed) and thus DeSantis would win the primary.
