WASHINGTON — Stephen Bassett and Mick West don’t agree on much. We don't know if it's an enemy. We don't know if it's an optical phenomenon," said new NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, a former astronaut and Florida senator, in a recent CNN interview. For him, it’s a question of national security and understanding whether rivals like China or Russia have developed advanced technology we don’t know about. Important people have had an interest in UFOs for a long time; they just didn’t really talk about it.

Critical Race Theory has become one of the most animating issues for Republicans nationwide. What is critical race theory? "Critical race theory is a practice. Republicans in a number of states have pushed to ban critical race theory from schools, misleadingly contending that the concept teaches kids to hate the US and each other. Coverage of critical race theory dominates Fox News coverage across daytime, primetime, and online.

Two passengers sharing a room on a Caribbean cruise ship tested positive this week for Covid-19, triggering safety precautions that enabled some 600 other passengers to continue eating and gambling on the ship. The passengers who tested positive are asymptomatic and are in isolation, the cruise line said. At the same time, cruise lines have said the detection of positive cases onboard indicates that their health and safety protocols are working. John Roberts, a travel writer, said passengers around him have generally reacted calmly since the captain announced the positive cases. “It suggests, at least, that the amount of virus circulating in their bodies is low enough not to create severe symptoms,” Dr. Pereira said of the two passengers who tested positive.

Pioneering CEO Ursula Burns Wants to Make Stories Like Hers Less Rare
  + stars: | 2021-06-11 | by ( Emily Bobrow | ) + 0.00   time to read: +2 min
As the first Black female CEO of a Fortune 500 company, her promotion was historic—not least because she was succeeding another woman, Anne Mulcahy. “I wanted the stories to go one step further, to try to understand why it’s so rare,” Ms. Burns, 62, said over the phone from her home in Manhattan. Ms. Burns says that Xerox was “very diverse,” at least comparatively. Just five Fortune 500 companies have Black CEOs, and the number will drop to four when Kenneth Frazier, Merck’s CEO, steps down later this month. A record 41 women now run Fortune 500 companies, but that is still less than 10%.

Reuters and the Minneapolis Star Tribune each won a Pulitzer Prize on Friday for journalism about racial inequities in U.S. policing, while the New York Times and the Atlantic were honored for chronicling the COVID-19 pandemic, the two topics that dominated last year’s headlines. The Pulitzer Prizes are the most prestigious awards in American journalism and have been handed out since 1917, when newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer established them in a bequest to New York's Columbia University in his will. Reuters Editor-in-Chief Alessandra Galloni said in a statement that the series shaped the debate over how to reform American policing. The Pulitzer Prize for Reuters, a unit of Thomson Reuters (TRI.TO), was the newsroom's ninth since 2008, and sixth in the last four years. loadingThe New York Times won the public service journalism honor, often seen as the most coveted of the 22 prizes, for its "prescient and sweeping coverage of the coronavirus pandemic."

Google and Facebook accounted for 54% of U.S. digital advertising revenue in 2020, according to eMarketer, a market research company. Under the Facebook Journalism Project, for instance, Reuters received funding to develop a digital media training course for journalists. Both Facebook and Google have made contributions to the news industry apart from the $600 million. Both Facebook and Google say publishers benefit just from using their platforms, which deliver traffic that helps drive advertising revenue and subscriptions. The Seattle Times publisher said his paper has participated in programs backed by Google and Facebook.

Most mayoral primaries typically feature bruising campaigns; ranked-choice was supposed to discourage that, with candidates wary of alienating each other’s base. That had largely been true this year, but the level of sniping and negative campaigning has increased in recent weeks. But the voting system also has its quirks. That is expected to take weeks, and officials have cautioned that a victor may not be declared until mid-July. “Ranked-choice voting has definitely added an unpredictability to the race,” said Ester Fuchs, a politics professor at Columbia University.

When she returns from her space flight, Gerardi hopes to help make sure the next generation of space explorers is a more diverse one, from a wide range of backgrounds and demographics. The space industry, like other STEM fields, has wide racial and gender gaps and is overrepresented by white men. "It wasn't an industry I saw myself necessarily as having a future in until I was a little bit older and discovered the commercial space flight industry," Gerardi said. But her chance to go into space came from her background in science communication, which turned into space research and more. Had those platforms existed when she was growing up, Gerardi says she may have joined the space industry sooner.

Biden's upcoming summit with Putin will be one of his biggest tests yet as president. Experts say it's unclear what Biden hopes to gain from Putin, who wants to keep the US as an adversary. If Biden doesn't come out with "clear deliverables," the summit could be perceived as a win for the Kremlin, a former US official warned. Experts warn that Putin has no intention of using the meeting to improve relations, and question what Biden has to gain via the summit. The Biden administration's actions to punish Russia, however, have yet to produce a demonstrable change in behavior from Putin.

Florida and Alabama will no longer report daily Covid cases and fatalities as vaccinations rise and states begin shifting to the "next phase" of the pandemic. "Florida is transitioning into the next phase of the COVID-19 response," the Florida Department of Health wrote in an emailed statement Monday. "As vaccinations increase and new case positivity rate decreases, the Florida Department of Health has moved to a weekly reporting schedule." Many states have moved away from daily reporting over the course of the pandemic, with nearly twenty reporting data five days a week, according to a list maintained by Hopkins.

"Right now, they are hair on fire," a former government official said of the Biden administration. The impact of ransomware attacks has grown since Biden took office, officials said. In a typical ransomware attack, hackers break into a corporate network and lock up data, demanding payment to release it. That's why the Biden administration is contemplating ways to deter ransomware gangs and the countries that give them sanctuary, principally Russia. The White House said Biden will tell Russian President Vladimir Putin at their summit June 16 that Russia must stop harboring criminal hackers.

But officials say criminal ransomware attacks from abroad, once a nuisance, have become a major source of economic damage, as the disruption of gasoline and meat supplies in recent weeks has illustrated. Officials say that intelligence collection puts the U.S. in a better position to target the groups if the president orders a strike. Russia allows the hackers to operate without interference as long as they are attacking the West, U.S. officials say. Since Biden took office, the impact of ransomware attacks has grown, officials say. Cyber security experts say successful ransomware attacks often take advantage of companies with substandard cyber defenses.

But many of the surveillance court’s opinions remain secret, and the U.S.A. Freedom Act does not ensure that the court’s future opinions will see the light of day. The surveillance court has made clear it believes the executive branch should have the last word on whether the court’s opinions should be published. challenged this conclusion, both the surveillance court and the appeals court that oversees it held that they lacked authority even to consider the A.C.L.U.’s claim. The surveillance court has exempted itself from this rule on the ground that it deals with national security matters. The petition we and our colleagues filed in the Supreme Court seeks to bring the surveillance court’s practices in line with the Constitution.

“It bridged a gap,” Ms. Ray said, while she waited for slower forms of assistance, like rental aid. In addition to providing for the test, Ms. Ray said, the checks brought hope. “Part of the benefit of the stimulus to me was God saying, ‘I got you.’ Spiritual and emotional reassurance. He also argued that hardship would have fallen anyway, since the last round of stimulus checks coincided with tax season, which sends large sums to low-wage workers through tax credits. Noting that the stimulus checks allocated as much to households with incomes above $100,000 as they did to those below $30,000, Mr. Winship called them inefficient and a poor model for future policy.

Posts show a picture of the microchip inside the tip of a needle, with captions and comments suggesting a connection with the COVID-19 vaccine. Some of these posts reference the “magnet challenge”, where social media users started posting videos of magnets attracted to the site of a COVID-19 vaccine injection claiming it proves the vaccine contains a microchip.
