Needless to say, it’s not just restaurants. The piece showcased Busy Bodies, a playspace for children in Brooklyn, and Bank Street Bookstore, a children’s bookstore, as among the casualties. From the article:

U.S. officials have sai

By Chris Baraniuk & Leo Kelion TikTok's time in the US may be running out, with President Trump and other senior officials talking of an imminent ban. But other Chinese-owned apps and software-based services could also be targeted. On Sunday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo alleged that some of the Asian nation's technology companies were “feeding data directly to the Chinese Communist Party". So who else is at risk? The most obvious target is Te

In the Soviet Union there was a debate in the 1960s about where they were in this regard, and the solution was that, although they were not yet in full Communism, they were also no longer in the lower stage (Socialism). So, they introduced a further distinction between lower and hi

The order will ensure that Federal agencies prioritise hiring American workers and not people on an H-1B visa.“We believe jobs must be offered to American workers first,” Donald Tr

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who is

U.S. health authorities hope by late next month to have some draft guidance on how to ration initial doses, but it’s a vexing decision. “Not everybody’s going to like the answer,” Dr. Francis Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health, recently told one of the advisory groups the government asked to help decide. “There will be many people who fee

It was justified by lies that form the bedrock of 21st century U.S. war propaganda, casting a new enemy, and target – China. By John Pilger in Sydney, Australia When I first went to Hiroshima in 1967, the shadow on the steps was still there. It was an a

The engineer and inventor was born in 1929 in Kentucky and studied electrical engineering at university before joining the US Navy. He built the first mouse in 1963, using an idea put forward by his colleague Doug Engelbart while the pair were working on early computing. It would only become commonplace two decades later, when personal home computers became popular. Mr English's death was confirmed

The snaps that were shared by Merve Özcan on Twitter show a mother cat bringing her sick kitten to the human hospital. The paramedics can be seen surrounding the poor mama cat and petting her. Luckily, the Turkish people are known for th

Selling weapons to the allied was a way to help them without getting overtly involved. I dislike Roosevelt for some of his policies like the camps but I do not blame him for trying to keep his country out of the war.
