Fourth of July: Divided we stand on everything from flag to heroism

Welcome to the divided states of America. Get ready for an earful. We don’t agree on much in 2020. Need evidence? Just talk for five minutes to your neighbor, or your relatives, or people in line at the grocery store, or people protesting in the street. Ask people how concerned they are about the coronavirus pandemic, or what politicians should do to try to stop it. Maybe the only thing we can agree on is that we have the right to disagree.

Loosened Stay-At-Home Restrictions, Holiday Weekend To Test California

SAN DIEGO (AP) – George Cruz relaxed at an outdoor beach restaurant as a waitress wearing surgical gloves and a face covering rushed by, carrying a tray with a Pina Colada in a pineapple-shaped cup. An employee in a face covering stood nearby with cleaning supplies in his gloved hand, ready to sanitize any empty tables. The odd mix of pumping music, cocktails and health precautions did not seem to deter anyone. Beach House Grill – known for its ocean views and fire pits – was already filling up ...

Cool New Coronado Collection by Zachary A.

The formula for Zachary A.’s Coronado Collection is simple enough: Crushed Glass + Resin + Gravity. While the formula may be simple, the process is anything but. Zachary A.’s artisans must manipulate resin and pigments around grains of crushed glass within the context of a rotating mold and an expiring clock: “As the resin hardens, the formation phase slows to a crawl and then ceases.” The expectation is part and parcel of the excitement. Each piece is a unique rendering of a c...

Washington establishment freaks out as Modern Monetary Theory gains currency

Modern Monetary Theory (previously) is an economic philosophy based on the idea that all state spending is "deficit" spending, since money comes into existence when the government spends it, and when the government raises taxes, it does so in order to take that money out of existence, both in order to control inflation and to limit the concentration of power in the hands of the wealthy. The corollaries of this are many, but the two standout ones are: 1. The government can create money to ...

"A group of LGBT migrants who were part of the massive caravan slowly marching toward the U.S. made it to the coastal border city of Tijuana on Sunday."

Reports NPR. I'm surprised to see NPR using the word "marching," which reinforces the idea that the caravan is an invading army. But maybe the NPR writer is thinking of something more like a civil rights march. We're told this group of 80, "the majority of whom identify as LGBT, splintered off from the larger group in Mexico City after weeks of what they say was discriminatory treatment by local residents and other travelers."The LGBT migrants gravitated toward one another within the caravan and...

The 7 best US cities to see by bike

Driving can be a cumbersome way to see a city, what with traffic congestion and expensive parking. And while walking gets you up-close and personal, it’s hard to cover a lot of ground on foot — especially when the places you want to visit are far apart. Touring a city by bike, on the other hand, gives you that closer look while getting you farther in less time. Plus, fantastic cities like Seattle and Washington, DC, are becoming even friendlier to cyclists by adding bike lanes, welcoming bike...
