    1. President Trump Challenges Anthony Fauci Comments on COVID-19 Surges

      President Trump Challenges Anthony Fauci Comments on COVID-19 Surges

      President Trump on Saturday publicly rejected Anthony Fauci's analysis of why the United States has experienced a surge in coronavirus cases, claiming that the nation's top infectious disease expert wasn't accounting for the country's testing capacity. 

      "Wrong!" Trump said in a tweet that linked to a video of Fauci's Friday testimony before Congress. 

      In a hearing focused on the federal response to the global health crisis, Fauci said the U.S. was experiencing a much more severe resurgence in coronavirus cases than countries in Europe because many states failed to completely shut down. 

      "If you look at what happened in Europe when they shut down or locked down or went into shelter in place ... they ...

      Pelosi Announces She Has No Confidence in Top COVID-19 Advisor

      House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared Sunday that she has "no confidence" in top White House coronavirus adviser Deborah Birx, just days after Pelosi reportedly called Birx "the worst" in a closed-door meeting and said the White House coronavirus team was in "horrible hands."

      At the same time, Pelosi has praised Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIH), as a "hero." Democrats have largely turned on Birx after a thinly sourced article in The New York Times criticized her for defending President Trump -- but Fauci, who has repeatedly changed his view on key aspects of the pandemic, is now seen as more willing to challenge the president.

      Birx Says the Coronavirus has Entered a "New Phase"

      Dr. Deborah L. Birx, the Trump administration’s coronavirus coordinator, said on Sunday that the nation was in a “new phase” of the coronavirus epidemic that was much more sprawling across the country than last spring’s outbreaks in major cities like New York and Seattle.

      She recommended that people living in communities where cases are surging should consider wearing a mask at home, if they live with someone who is especially vulnerable because of age or underlying medical conditions.

      “What we are seeing today is different from March and April — it is extraordinarily widespread,” she said on CNN’s “State of the Union” news program. “It’s into the rural as equal urban areas. So everybody who lives in ...

      Kamala Harris Talks Personal Attacks Received During Biden's VP Search

      Sen. Kamala Harris on Friday appeared to address the personal attacks on whether she would be a trustworthy partner to presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

      The criticisms of the California senator's ambition have come in the closing weeks of Biden's vice president search -- and have provoked complaints of sexism and racial bias.
      "There will be a resistance to your ambition, there will be people who say to you, 'you are out of your lane,'" Harris said during a livestream conversation for the Black Women Lead 2020 conference. "They are burdened by only having the capacity to see what has always been instead of what can be. But don't you let that burden you."

      Trump Wants Death Penalty for Boston Marathon Bomber

      “Rarely has anybody deserved the death penalty more than the Boston Bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev,” Trump tweeted. “The court agreed that this ‘was one of the worst domestic terrorist attacks since the 9/11 atrocities’. Yet the appellate court tossed out the death sentence.” 

      “So many lives lost and ruined. The Federal Government must again seek the Death Penalty in a do-over of that chapter of the original trial. Our Country cannot let the appellate decision stand,” the president added. “Also, it is ridiculous that this process is taking so long!”

      Whole Foods Workers Walk Out Over Anti-Rascism Firing

      A Whole Foods worker walkout took place at a Portland store on Sunday afternoon after an  employee said he had to resign for refusing to take off a button that said “racism has no place here.”

      Dylan Woodruff, 23, said he was told on July 27 not to come back to work because of the button, 360aproko news reported. Woodruff worked at Whole Foods’ Laurelhurst store east of downtown Portland and was expected at Sunday’s walkout, a spokesperson for Portland Jobs with Justice, a group supporting the walkout, told 360aproko news.

      Lord and Taylor Files for Bankruptcy

      Lord & Taylor is bankrupt.

      After months of speculation, the struggling department store chain as well as its parent company Le Tote today became the latest fashion players to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection — in the U.S Bankruptcy Court in Richmond, Va. Bloomberg News first reported the move this evening.

      Lord & Taylor, which was acquired by Le Tote less than a year ago, has been on the bankruptcy watch list for some time, so the filing isn’t a surprise. In the past few months, JCPenney, Neiman Marcus and J. Crew have filed for bankruptcy as the coronavirus crisis hit footwear and apparel players hard — and stores shut down for months.

      Police Officer Charged for Stealing Firearms from Dead Person's Home

      Authorities in a Maryland county have arrested a police officer on burglary and theft charges involving stolen firearms and other property.

      Anne Arundel County police said late Saturday that Cpl. Jacob Miskill has been charged with first-, third- and fourth-degree burglary, theft and misconduct in office. 

      "The actions of this individual are contrary to the sacred oath that we as police officers take to protect and serve our community and to uphold the laws of the state of Maryland. This Officer’s criminal actions tarnish the badge worn by every Anne Arundel County Police Officer and the actions are inexcusable," said the county's police chief Chief William Lowry.

      Microsoft Continues to Talk Acquiring TikTok

      Microsoft on Sunday announced it was still participating in talks to acquire US operations of the video app TikTok.

      The company said in the statement that it planned to complete these "discussions" with the app's parent company, ByteDance, by September 15.

      The announcement came after President Donald Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One that his administration would ban the Chinese-owned app because of security concerns, sparking panic among creators on the popular social-media platform.

      According to a Friday pool report, Trump said he had the authority to ban TikTok "with an executive order or that" — apparently referring to emergency economic powers. It's unclear how exactly he might try to ban the app.

      Nikola Decided to Merge with a SPAC

      Special-purpose acquisition companies, or SPACs, have made a splash in 2020. The so-called “blank-check companies” are on pace to raise more initial public offerings, bring in more money, and complete more deals than ever before.

      And the industry is seeing more famous and more sophisticated investors, sponsors, and underwriters getting involved, continuing a long-term trend. But underpinning it all is a greater willingness from sellers of private companies to take the SPAC route to going public.

    1. Nassau County Jury Returns $1.45 Million Verdict for Client of Pegalis Law Group

      Nassau County Jury Returns $1.45 Million Verdict for Client of Pegalis Law Group

      New Hyde Park, July 2020… On March 16, 2020, in one of the last civil jury verdicts due to the Corona virus, a Nassau County jury returned a $1.45 million verdict against Dr. Louis Tiger—a Massapequa physician—in favor of the Estate of Alexandra Hernandez—a 52 year old wife and mother. According to trial attorney Robert V. Fallarino of Pegalis Law Group, “The jury found the doctor negligent for failing to perform a simple blood test to evaluate Alexandra’s kidney function, before giving her an injection of Reclast to strengthen her bones. This is a very common treatment for post-menopause osteoporosis, but it is known to cause kidney damage if given to at-risk women.” A kidney ...

      U.S. Hits 5th Year in a Row With Under 30 Executions

      By Maryland Criminal Defense Attorney Oleg Fastovsky of Oleg Fastovsky Attorney at Law

      Oleg Fastovsky

       

      For a fifth straight year in the United States, fewer than 30 people were executed. Additionally, less than 50 new death sentences were handed out, continuing the recent trend in a decline in capital punishment throughout the country. In 2019, states executed 22 prisoners, making it the second fewest total in nearly three decades.

      A History of the Death Penalty

      The death penalty in the United States dates back to the days of the Jamestown colony. Britain was a major influence in the implementation of capital punishment in the United States, as it was a common practice at the time throughout Europe. The first recorded ...
