By Zachary R. Mider, Jason Grotto and Phil Kuntz, Bloomberg When it comes to federal aid for small businesses, U.S. states are learning a lesson already familiar to shoppers on the hunt for toilet paper: It pays to be first in line. Over the last nine days of March, the Small Business Administration handed out 1,790 disaster-relief loans, for a total of $357 million, most of it for businesses disrupted by the coronavirus. The data was disclosed April 4 on a government website. Businesses in all ...

Brennan Center urges all Governors to use executive authority to "release vulnerable people who pose no risk to public safety from incarceration"

The title of this post would make plenty of sense even in a world without COVID, as vulnerable people who pose no risk to public safety really ought not be kept behind bars even in the best of times.  But, of course, right now we live in a world with COVID, and that has prompted the Brennan Center to produce this new seven-page letter, addressed to "the Honorable Governors of the fifty states," which includes these passages at the outset: However, the almost 2 million people behind bars at the ...

iLiad iRex iLiad for sale

I am selling my iRex iLiad. It is in excellent condition, powers on and works correctly. It has the original power adapter and a aftermarket soft zippered case.

I'm mainly looking to get rid of it and put it in the hands of somebody who has a use for it. I am located in central Iowa, but can ship anywhere, with appropriate reimbursement for shipping costs.

Whicker: Mike Bohn hears USC fans loud and clear, then sends his own message

Mike Bohn came to USC and said his ears were wide open. The blood notwithstanding, they still are. The new athletic director detonated the Internet when he decided Embattled Clay Helton should coach the football team in 2020. He didn’t realize he would trigger such a torrent of #FireBohn hashtags. A Holiday Bowl loss to Iowa, with quarterback Kedon Slovis again knocked to the sidelines, added kerosene. So did a low-rated recruiting year. Bohn’s ears are still attached. He has been face-to-face w...

Rams’ Austin Blythe has lost free-agent teammates, but not his optimism

The medium was unusual. The message, coming from a Rams player, was familiar. Offensive lineman Austin Blythe spoke from his house in Williamsburg, Iowa, in a video-stream press conference Wednesday, the Zoom hookup replacing the customary in-person appearance by a newly re-signed free agent. Blythe said he has enjoyed the forced time at home with his wife, Kylie, and their 3-year-old son and 3-month-old daughter, and has been able to improvise a workout routine using the weight rack and treadmi...

Why Rural Areas Are In A Particularly Tough Situation As Coronavirus Spreads

CARROLLTON, Ala. (AP) — As the coronavirus spread across the United States, workers at the lone hospital in one Alabama county turned off beeping monitors for good and padlocked the doors, making it one of the latest in a string of nearly 200 rural hospitals to close nationwide. Now Joe Cunningham is more worried than ever about getting care for his wife, Polly, a dialysis patient whose health is fragile. The nearest hospital is about 30 miles away, he said, and that’s too far since COVID-19 alr...

Do I Have to Pay My Rent or Mortgage During the Pandemic?

As March winds down, at least 250 million Americans have been told to stay home or “shelter in place” to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Problem is, many can’t help wondering if they can still afford a place to shelter in—if they ever could.Long before the coronavirus pandemic, generous swaths of the United States faced an affordable housing crisis.

Joe Biden Is Smart to Get the Hell Out of the Way

For weeks now, I’ve been worried about Joe Biden. Yes, the deadly coronavirus presents serious political problems for Donald Trump (despite his current glowing approval ratings, this crisis undermines the one thing he had going for him: a good economy), but consider how quickly the pandemic killed the Joe-mentum. It wasn’t that long ago that Joe, not COVID-19, was the talk of the town—and rightly so. After a campaign season when Biden barely managed to tread water, and when we nearly wrote him o...

The number and type of employees triggering the workers’ compensation insurance requirement varies, and each state has different exceptions to that requirement. The Number of Employees You Have Matters. In most states, if you have just one employee you must carry workers’ compensa...
