Coronavirus live news: US suffers one Covid death every minute as global cases near 60m Nevada’s governor, diagnosed with Covid-19 himself earlier this month, said on Sunday he was tightening coronavirus restrictions on casinos, restaurants and bars, while imposing a broader statewide mandate for face-coverings over the next three weeks.

Review: NHL 21 scores with Be A Pro, but could still be better Playing NHL 21 makes me feel old. I say that as someone who used to religiously buy sports games starting way back in the NES days so my brother and I can play them to death, at least until the next new shiny sports title comes along. By the time the rivalry between EA Sports and Visual Concepts came about, there were times when we would actually buy their competing games during the same year.

Donald Trump Jr: The son who is Trumpier than Trump Image copyright Getty Images On the first night of the Republican Party convention, the president's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, took centre stage and commanded the nation's attention. "Trump's policies have been like rocket fuel to the economy," Mr Trump said during his speech, praising his father's leadership. But his most powerful lines were not about his the president; they were swipes at Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee for the presidency. "Biden's radical left-wing policies would stop our economic recovery cold," Mr Trump said. He warned conservatives that Democrats would undo the economic gains that people had made with his father in the White House.
Trump’s Pardon of Flynn Signals Prospect of a Wave in His Final Weeks in Office WASHINGTON — When President Trump pardoned Michael T. Flynn on Wednesday, he did more than wipe clean the record of his first national security adviser, who had twice pleaded guilty to lying to the F.B.I. He also bolstered the hopes of a wide array of clemency seekers that he might deliver a wave of pardons and commutations before leaving office. Among the others looking for pardons are two former Trump campaign advisers, Rick Gates and George Papadopoulos, who like Mr. Flynn were convicted in cases stemming from the special counsel’s Russia investigation. But lawyers and others who have been in touch with the White House say they anticipate that Mr.

'Don't fuel the fire': disinformation experts on how Biden should deal with Trump's election lies In the days since Joe Biden won the US presidential election, Donald Trump has rejected the results, spread lies about voter fraud, replaced key military leaders with loyalists, and encouraged Republicans at every level of the party to contest the vote counts showing that he lost. Americans are now debating how Biden should respond. Biden has called Trump’s refusal to concede an “embarrassment” and told voters that “the fact that they’re not willing to acknowledge that we won at this point is not of much consequence”. But some have called on the president-elect to go further, and furiously sound the alarm about an American politician adopting the tactics of a dictator. Some experts on disinformation say that Biden’s current strategy of downplaying Trump’s behavior may be the correct one at the moment, even if it can be “frustrating to watch”, said Becca Lewis, a research affiliate at Data & Society Research Institute, who studies misinformation.
