The PS4 is a forward compatible system, meaning most of its games and a selection of other accessories are playable on the PS5. All PS4 games released from this point on are guaranteed to be forward compatible with the PS5. Because the PS5 is largely backward compatible, this means that many elements of the PS4 experience are also forward compatible. In this case, many PS4 games are forward compatible, meaning they can run on a PS5. For compatible PS VR games played on PS5, the PS Move Motion Controllers and the PlayStation VR Aim Controller.

Only three US presidents have faced impeachment before him — Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998 were both impeached, while Richard Nixon resigned before he could be impeached in 1974. The House impeached Trump on two articles on December 18, 2019. Three other presidents have faced impeachment proceedings, but only two have been successfully impeached. On December 19, 1998, the House impeached Clinton for two of the articles — perjury and obstructing justice. Despite being impeached, Clinton refused to step down.

Since then, it's become clear this isn't just a paranoid quirk specific to overthinkers working multiple jobs, like me. A new year brings new pledges to improve our work-life balance amid chipper reminders not to make work your whole life. might sound fine in theory, but not if losing a shift means not being able to pay your rent; "work isn't everything!" "Unfortunately, there are many workers (essential workers, workers in blue-collar jobs, minimum-wage employees, gig workers) for whom the idea of work-life balance is utopic," González-Morales said. That long-shot reach for security is tethered to this anxiety — and the answer isn't to remind workers to take breaks that can feel impossible.

Recall Is Issued for Sportmix Pet Food After 28 Dogs Die
  + stars: | 2020-12-31 | by ( Christina Morales | ) www.nytimes.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +1 min
A pet food company is recalling several types of its Sportmix-brand dry foods for dogs and cats after 28 dogs died and eight others fell ill, possibly from ingesting fatal levels of a toxin that is produced by mold. The company, Midwestern Pet Foods Inc. of Evansville, Ind., announced the voluntary recall on Wednesday of some of its Sportmix products distributed nationally online and in retail stores after tests showed that levels of the toxin, aflatoxin, exceeded acceptable limits. Aflatoxin is produced by the mold Aspergillus flavus, which can grow on corn and grains that are used as ingredients in pet food, the F.D.A. At high levels, the toxin can cause pets to become ill or die, or cause liver damage without symptoms, the department said. “If a pet’s food contains aflatoxin, the toxin could accumulate in the pet’s system as they continue to eat the same food.”

PUNTA MORALES, Costa Rica (Reuters) - Some 200 workers from 27 nations are building a hybrid sailboat on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica designed to carry 350 tons of goods, hoping to demonstrate that in the 21st century it is possible to transport cargo without polluting the environment. The vessel is being built in Punta Morales, a poor fishing community 125 kilometers (78 miles) west of Costa Rica’s capital, San Jose. Doggett, a professional ship captain, founded the company with her partner Lynx Guimond, an adventurer and cabinetmaker.

HAVANA (Reuters) - Argentina football legend Diego Maradona said his hero, late Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro - whom he considered a “second father” and whose face he had tattooed on his leg - once urged him to go into politics. “Everything Fidel does, everything Chavez does for me is the best (that can be done),” Maradona said on Chavez’s weekly television show in 2007. Tedeschi recalls the time Maradona knocked on his door and proposed a spontaneous visit to Castro. “They would always talk about politics - Diego was really interested in politics,” said Tedeschi, adding that Castro would also pay spontaneous visits to his Havana home.

Instead, they would prevent him from achieving all that he might have done and, eventually, shorten his career. But if the flaws diminished what Maradona was, they burnished what he represented to those who watched him, those who adored him. Maradona was the platonic ideal of a pibe, all virtuoso skill and impetuous cunning. He was a pibe when Barcelona made him the most expensive player on the planet and when he took Napoli to not one, but two Serie A titles. He was a pibe even as he conquered the world.

Jeffrey Lowe, the man who took over the animal park at the center of the popular Netflix documentary “Tiger King,” was accused on Thursday of violating the Endangered Species Act and Animal Welfare Act, prosecutors said. On Thursday, the Department of Justice announced that it had filed a 110-page civil complaint against Mr. Lowe and his wife, Lauren Lowe and the park, the Greater Wynnewood Exotic Animal Park in Wynnewood, Okla. The complaint accuses the couple of violating the Endangered Species Act and the Animal Welfare Act by exhibiting animals without a license and jeopardizing the health of their animals. The complaint asked the court to require the couple to relinquish some of their animals to the government. Mr. Lowe’s lawyer, James M. Wirth, said in a statement that the couple were “consistently caring and kind stewards of animals in their care,” and that the government had constructed a “fictional interpretation” of the Animal Welfare Act.
