Trump Is the Loser

“Biden is relying on these states for his phony claim on the White House, but once the election is final, President Trump will be reelected.” Some Republicans, who belie their party’s name by putting partisan allegiance over loyalty to the republic, have rallied around Trump, including Senator Lindsey Graham, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and Senator Ted Cruz, though other Republicans have condemned Trump.

The world is in an “era of pandemics” and unless the destruction of the natural world is halted they will emerge more often, spread more rapidly, kill more people and affect the global economy with more devastating impact than ever before, according to a report from some of the world’s leading scientists.

The emergence of diseases such as Covid-19, bird flu and HIV from animals was entirely driven by the razing of wild places for farming and the trade in wild species, which brought people into contact with the dangerous microbes, the experts said. “The risk of pandemics is increasing rapidly, with more than five new diseases emerging in people every year, any one of which has the potential to become pandemic,” the report says. It estimates there are more than 500,000 unknown viruses in mammals and birds that could infect humans. The current approach to disease outbreaks is trying to contain them and develop treatments or vaccines, which the scientists say is a “slow and uncertain path”. Greta Thunberg Hears Your Excuses. She Is Not Impressed. Greta Thunberg has become so firmly entrenched as an icon — perhaps the icon — of ecological activism that it’s hard to believe it has been only two years since she first went on school strike to draw attention to the climate crisis.

Greta Thunberg Hears Your Excuses. She Is Not Impressed.

In that short time, Thunberg, a 17-year-old Swede, has become a figure of international standing, able to meet with sympathetic world leaders and rattle the unsympathetic. Her compelling clarity about the scale of the crisis and moral indignation at the inadequate political response have been hugely influential in shifting public opinion. An estimated four million people participated in the September 2019 global climate strikes that she helped inspire.

A camouflage hat droops over his ancient, wire-framed glasses. Trump stages corrosive attempt to undermine 2020. Using the briefing room to espouse baseless claims he is being deprived a second term by fraud, Trump thrust into question the democratic notion of a peaceful transition of power should Biden win.

Instead he suggested he would fight in the courts until the election is decided in his favor. "This is a case where they're trying to steal an election, they're trying to rig an election, and we can't let that happen," Trump said in a dour monotone, providing no evidence and departing the room without answering for his false claims.

The Path To Peace Is Paved With Empathy

With the isolation brought on by the pandemic, that may seem harder than ever, but it will truly take togetherness to emerge as a more peaceful world. Where unity is perhaps most crucial right now, is with regard to the climate emergency — and it is an emergency. As we watched the entire West Coast of America burn out of control, there was an added ache in knowing the wildfires didn’t have to be that bad.

IRISHTIMES Kevin Rowland: ‘I woke up at 3am with my chest so tight I thought that was it’ “I’ve been waiting to talk about this for years,” says Kevin Rowland. “There are so many myths and misunderstandings around it.” He’s referring to his 1999 covers album, My Beauty, a record mocked by the music press at the time for the choice of songs, Rowland’s earnest delivery and, above all else, the fact he chose to wear stockings and a pearl necklace for the cover image.

When it first came out, critics claimed the Dexys Midnight Runners frontman was in the middle of a nervous breakdown, that the record only sold 500 copies, that he was bottled off stage at Reading festival, that Bruce Springsteen was so appalled by his interpretation of Thunder Road he had personally rejected Rowland’s lyrical changes. The only thing was … none of it was true. “There was this idea that I was mad, that this was all part of some crack-up,” says Rowland.
