‘I called him out on the fact he’s not paying 2 per cent, and I guess he’s not very happy about it,’ says US president

Rare public speech by Christine Blasey Ford

The Constitution mandates it. Most Americans believe in it. But today it is under threat as never before.

Church-state separation stands as one of the foundations of our Nation. Because of it, Americans enjoy unparalleled religious liberty and nurture one of the most vital religious communities in the world. Separation guarantees you the freedom to worship or not to worship as you choose.

But today, powerful religious leaders and misguided politicians have joined forces to undercut the First Amendment.

Spotify version of my 13 hour mix from last summer's Country Club. It vacillates between zero BPM ambient stuff and mostly mellow beats. It's highly compatible with Spotify's crossfade functionality. It'll work in the background, but it's designed to hold your attention.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted psilocybin therapy a Breakthrough Therapy designation for the second time in a year, this time with a view on accelerating trials testing its efficacy treating major depressive disorder (MDD).

Polls closed in Hong Kong with no major disruptions on Sunday after people turned out in huge numbers to vote in district council elections seen as a test of support for chief executive Carrie Lam following six months of pro-democracy protests.

"We can see why Mike Pompeo has refused to release this information to Congress. The evidence is only going to get worse."

They've adapted "The Rural Juror"? I'm a huge Kevin Grisham fan.

You can see why Buttigieg was a perfect fit from this line in a New Yorker profile: “for much of his life, Buttigieg has been giving those around him the impression of extreme promise.” The “impression of extreme promise” rather than “the evidence of extremely sound moral character” is what gets you onto those 30-under-30 or 20-under-20 lists. And so it is no surprise that, after informing us that he got the highest possible grade in his Oxford course, Buttigieg narrates his next move as follows:

"Knowing I would head back to America meant that there was less at stake for me in the grade, but I took pride in it even while sensing that the time had come to learn what wasn’t on the page and get an education in the real world.

Okay, pause for a moment. If you are Pete Buttigieg, at this point in your life you have the ability to take almost any job you want. These schools open doors, and you pick which one you go through.
