SECOND DEMOCRATIC DEBATE LINE UP Tuesday, July 30 - from left of screenMarianne WilliamsonTim Ryan Amy Klobuchar Pete Buttigieg Bernie Sanders Elizabeth Warren Beto O'Rourke John Hickenlooper John DelaneySteve Bullock Democrats debating in Detroit on Tuesday teetered between slamming President Donald Trump and attacking each other, unsure whether to spend their time onstage trying to win the primary contest or the 2020 general election. 'Ultimately we have to beat Donald Trump,' Minnesota Sen Amy Klobuchar said.' But a moment later she tried to drive a wedge in the middle of her own party, between the left-wing progressives and the moderates to their right. 'Yes, I have bold ideas,' she said, 'but they are grounded in reality.' Massachusetts Sen Elizabeth Warren wasted no time clobbering Trump, saying he 'disgraces the office of president every single day.'

Dixon envisaged shrews that use their tails as parachutes, flying monkeys (or “flunkeys”), super-long coiled snakes that strike out to snatch birds mid-flight, nightgliders that impale their prey with long spikes on their chests, and flower-faced birds and bats that fool pollinating insects into landing in their hungry mouths. … [Read more...] about Strange evolution: The weird future of life on Earth
James R. Carroll Special to USA TODAY Published 12:00 PM EDT Jun 3, 2019 ROCKPORT, Mass. – You could battle the traffic out of Boston onto Cape Cod, or you could come to Cape Ann. You could join the throngs on long, crowded beaches on Cape Cod, or you could find a little spot all to yourself on Cape Ann. You could try to find something undiscovered on Cape Cod, or you could come to Cape Ann – which, even to a large swath of New England natives – might as well be stamped “terra incognita” on the map. Just under an hour’s drive – or a little more than an hour’s train ride – northeast of Boston, Cape Ann is a smaller version of Cape Cod. It has the same Atlantic vistas, sandy beaches, seaside eateries and colonial history as its better-known neighbor, but a much rockier coastline, artists’ colonies, the birthplace of fried clams and a graceful, settled charm in a more compact space that has drawn knowing … [Read more...] about Cape Ann, Massachusetts: A charming alternative to Cape Cod
Barack Obama did his level best to nudge Joe Biden out of the 2016 presidential race, after concluding that Hillary Clinton was more electable. The then-president 'gently pressed' his vice president during a series of weekly lunches, according to a report in The New York Times, tapping him toward the conclusion that he wasn't up to the grueling task of running. And then came the hammer: Obama sent political aide David Plouffe to talk him out of it. It worked. Biden scrapped an announcement speech he had drafted. Instead, he declared alongside Obama in a Rose Garden speech that the time he spent grieving the death of his son Beau from brain cancer had closed the path forward. Now, at age 76, Biden has decided his time has come. But days after he launched his third White House run in earnest, an Obama endorsement still seems a great distance away. The former vice president gamely responded to the lack of a legacy-nod by telling reporters on Thursday that he wanted it that way. 'I … [Read more...] about Obama sent an aide to talk Biden out running for president in 2016
