Some Great Digital Yoga Resources If Your studio is Still Closed

Everyone has their own routines for trying to stay sane and healthy during quarantine. Some people work on their sourdough skills, some get weights and lift at home, some Netflix and cocktail. For me, yoga has been a big help. I’ve loved practicing yoga for many years, but I had always been someone who went to classes at yoga studios.

Family members of demonstrators killed in Kenosha have filed a lawsuit against Facebook, alleging a failure to remove a Facebook group event organized by a local militia, some of whose members allegedly later committed violence.

Very few states have the infrastructure in-place to de-dupe dupliccate voting in a short timeframe. By suggesting that his supporters vote twice, Trump has accomplished his objective, casting doubt on mail in vote tallies. This assures that there is nearly ZERO chance that a winner can...
