  1. Senate Can't Vote On $15 Minimum Wage, Parliamentarian Rules Senate Democrats will not be forced to confront an internal political battle over increasing the federal minimum wage to $15 following a decision by the primary keeper of Senate rules. The Senate parliamentarian ruled that a plan to gradually increase the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2025 does not fit the complicated rules that govern budget bills in the Senate. House Democrats included the measure in a $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill that is expected to be the first major legislative act for President Biden.
  2. Cuomo denies former aide's sexual harassment allegations New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is denying allegations from a former aide who accused him of sexual harassment, including an unwanted kiss, in a Medium post on Wednesday. Lindsey Boylan alleged that in 2018, the Democratic governor kissed her on the lips following a one-on-one briefing in his New York City office. "As I got up to leave and walk toward an open door, he stepped in front of me and kissed me on the lips," Boylan wrote, describing the encounter. "I was in shock, but I kept walking." Boylan first accused the governor
  3. A mister no more: Mr. Potato Head goes gender neutral Is it Mr. Potato Head or not? Hasbro created confusion Thursday when it announced that it would drop the “Mr.” from the brand’s name in order to be more inclusive and so all could feel “welcome in the Potato Head world.” It also said it would sell a new playset this fall without the Mr. and Mrs. designations that will let kids create their own type of potato families, including two moms or two dads. But in a tweet later that afternoon, Hasbro clarified that while the brand is changing, the actual Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head char
  4. What Is Hyperloop and When Will It Be Ready? The two passengers strapped into their seats inside the gleaming white interior of the Pegasus as the pod lifted into the airlock. In the time it takes to finish reading this paragraph, the pod accelerated to 100 miles per hour (160 km/h) down a length of track, before delivering its first passengers to a safe stop. The ride lasted only 15 seconds and was in no danger of breaking any land-speed records, but Virgin Hyperloop One nevertheless made history as the first company that has successfully tested hyperloop technology. A hyperloop, as
  5. Texas was "seconds and minutes" away from having blackouts for months, power grid official says As the deadly winter blast hit Texas earlier this week, the top official at the state's power grid said the system was "seconds and minutes" away from leaving residents without power for months. Electric Reliability Council of Texas received intense criticism for leaving some 4 million customers without power this week. Bill Magness, the president and CEO of the council, told the Texas Tribune on Wednesday that it could have all been much worse. Magness told the outlet that grid operat
  6. Italy landslide drags 200 coffins into the sea near popular tourist resort Hundreds of coffins were carried away and plunged into the seas after a landslide on Tuesday hit a graveyard in a village near Genoa. Firemen and rescuers in Camogli, a cliff-side village near the northern city of Genoa, scrambled to rescue the coffins, many of which were damaged or destroyed after falling on the rocks about 50 metres below the cemetery. Only a dozen coffins out of the more than 200 swept away had been recovered as of Tuesday afternoon. Images of open and partially destroyed coffins f
  7. There is a book and movie called Farewell To Manzanar that shows how badly they were treated. All were assumed to be guilty, including children. Many families were broken up, and some thrown in prison. They even forced some to enlist to "prove" they weren't collaborators. Meanwhile FDR was making pacts with Stalin.
  8. Third Stimulus Check: Will Your Next Relief Payment Be $1,400? A third stimulus check, worth $1,400, is part of the Biden’s administration’s $1.9 trillion relief package. The American Rescue Plan, in its initial form, would also include more unemployment benefits, an improved child tax credit and additional aid for millions of Americans facing dire economic straits brought on by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The specifics are currently being hammered out. These decisions will determine how much money actually reaches people’s bank accounts. Another relief payment in the near future i
  9. Texas judge deals Biden another blow on 100-day deportation ban A federal judge in Texas on Tuesday blocked President Joe Biden’s 100-day moratorium on most deportations, the latest blow to Biden on one of his signature campaign promises. U.S. District Judge Drew Tipton, in a late-night ruling, granted a preliminary injunction that blocks the moratorium the Biden administration announced on its first day. It’s a victory for Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who filed a lawsuit against the federal government over the 100-day pause, which was announced in a memorandum from the Departme
  10. Biden commemorates 500,000 U.S. lives lost to COVID-19 Hours after the U.S. crossed the threshold of 500,000 deaths from COVID-19, President Biden commemorated the lives lost over the past year on Monday night. No other country has lost more lives to the yearlong pandemic than the U.S. "Today, we mark a truly grim, heartbreaking milestone," he said in a brief speech at the White House. "500,071 dead. That's more Americans who died in one year in this pandemic than in World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combined." Remembrance, Mr. Biden said, is an important part of the
  11. The PC energy doesn't carry the same load in winter, it works at a reduced rate when energy needs are high for heating and other uses. So it cannot take over the grid like democrats claim. If the texas grid had been entirely PC, the whole system would have gone down instead of rolling blackouts. Too many in here are being political about something that affects millions of lives.
  12. If he plugs in his electric PC car to charge on the electric PC grid it will only cost him $1000 for a fill-up, that sounds about right. Many of us warned about this years ago and now it has happened. A warm cup of coffee probably cost him $45.
  13. Texas Man Hit With $16,000 Electricity Bill After Storm Hits The State A Texas man has been whacked with an eye-watering $16,752 electricity bill after the state was hit with severe weather conditions which took out huge swathes of the power grid. Millions of Texans were left with no heating or electricity when a devastating storm hit, but some of those who were lucky enough to still have power are not feeling quite so lucky now their energy bills are arriving. Scott Willoughby, 63, told the New York Times he was hit with a $16,752 electric bill - a whopping 70 times what he usuall
  14. 90,000 Packages Are Stolen in NYC Every Day. “Hello — My package was stolen on 10/1/2020. I came home to find the empty box (item removed) in the trash. It was a nice, gray women’s blazer. Please return to 5C, no questions asked.” This veiled accusation set in motion a building-wide campaign to stop the petty theft afflicting the lobby of my unattended East Village walk-up, where I have lived since the 1990s. Package theft wasn’t an issue when I first moved in during the Grunge years, although crack vials routinely littered our stoop. Sleepy addicts sometimes blocked the door. Bu
  15. Go play some violins about it, you know it's true.
