Brooklyn Center protests: Police round up journalists

Journalists covering a protest in a Minneapolis suburb Friday night were forced on their stomachs by law enforcement, rounded up and were only released after having their face and press credentials photographed. The incident occurred hours after a judge issued a temporary order barring the Minnesota State Patrol from using physical force or chemical agents against journalists, according to court documents. It also barred police from seizing photographic, audio or video recording equipment, or press passes.

Colt said Minnesota state and local police were involved in the incident. The loudspeaker announcements came from the sheriff’s department, he said.

“The emergency order requires law enforcement to take certain steps to protect journalists… the order requires law enforcement to leave them alone,” said Adam Hansen, an attorney with Apollo Law LLC, who is working on the civil case with ACLU-Minnesota. “We absolutely see what happened last night as a violation of the court’s order and we’re doing everything we can to make sure that it doesn’t continue tonight and on into the future.”

Ontario’s new COVID-19 restrictions have science ‘absolutely upside-down,’ experts say | Globalnews.ca

“We know in Ontario that the huge drivers right now of transmission are workplaces, particularly industrial workplaces, warehouses, Amazon distribution centres, post offices,” said Fisman.

“We know a lot of the folks who are getting sick are lower income or have poor job security, can’t stay home if they feel sick.”

According to Fisman, what the premier should have done instead was to double-down on stronger ventilation in indoor settings, increased COVID-19 testing and paid sick leave for those in essential businesses.

“And I didn’t hear any of that today. I didn’t hear any of that in today’s press conference … It’s so ridiculous.”

Following spring break, Florida’s COVID variant cases explode – Orlando Sentinel

One month after the peak of Florida’s spring break, the number of residents infected with more infectious mutated strains of COVID-19 has exploded, rising six-fold since mid-March and leaving 122 people hospitalized.

The information, disclosed in response to a lawsuit by the Orlando Sentinel against the Florida Department of Health, shows the total as of Thursday reached 5,177 cases involving five “variants of concern” — a designation from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for mutations that make the virus more transmissible, deadly or resistant to treatment and current vaccines.

In 31 of those cases, the people infected died.

“This is kind of what a lot of public health folks have been afraid of, and why we’re trying to emphasize the need for continued caution as we move forward,” said Zinzi Bailey, a social epidemiologist at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. “My biggest fear is that, if we become more lax with our masking and our social distancing, we will actually start creating our own variant” — including, potentially, one that could evade current vaccines.

US regulators warn Peloton users to stop using treadmill after child death | US news | The Guardian – the treadmill 

If adults want to keep using the treadmill, the commission said, they should use it only in a locked room so children and pets can’t come near it. When not in use, the treadmill should be unplugged and the safety key taken out and hidden away. The commission also said to keep exercise balls and other objects away from it, because those have been pulled under the treadmill, too.

And it’s ultra-quiet too, never rising above a low-key 65 decibels.

Most of the time, the unit sits inside its docking station, a protective home when it rains, when it needs to recharge its battery, or just when its robo-mowing task is complete.
