Microsoft warned Bill Gates over 'inappropriate' emails to female staffer in 2008, report says

Bill Gates warned to stop sending emails to stafferMicrosoft executives warned Bill Gates to stop sending flirtatious emails to a female employee in 2008 but dropped the matter after he told them he would stop, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

According to the Journal, Brad Smith, then Microsoft’s general counsel and now its president and vice chair, and Lisa Brummel, former chief people officer, warned Gates that "the behavior was inappropriate and needed to stop." Gates, the Journal adds, didn't deny the exchanges and later told the executives that "it wasn’t a good idea" and said that he would stop.

The newspaper also reported members of the Microsoft board who were briefed on them declined to take further action because there wasn’t any physical interaction between Gates and the employee.

Biden administration asks Supreme Court to block Texas abortion ban

Biden administration asks SCOTUS to block Texas abortion ban

The Biden administration has asked the Supreme Court to take emergency action that would block Texas’ novel abortion ban from being enforced while litigation over its constitutionality goes forward.

The Justice Department’s new filing, submitted Monday, asks the justices to restore a preliminary injunction a federal district court judge in Texas issued earlier this month after concluding that the law violates longstanding legal precedent by seeking to ban abortions after about six weeks gestation.

“Allowing S.B. 8 to remain in force would irreparably harm those interests and perpetuate the ongoing irreparable injury to the thousands of Texas women who are being denied their constitutional rights,” acting Solicitor General Brian Fletcher wrote in the 39-page application. “Texas, in contrast, would suffer no cognizable injury from a preliminary injunction barring enforcement of a plainly unconstitutional law.”

Manchin meets with Sanders, Jayapal amid spending stalemate

Jayapal meets with ManchinSen, Joe Manchin  (D-W.Va.) met separately Monday with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Congressional Progressive Caucus Chairwoman Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) as liberals and centrists in the party struggle to cut a deal on President Biden's sweeping spending plan.

The meetings — he met first with Jayapal and then later with Sanders — come as the two leading progressives have grown increasingly frustrated with Manchin, a key holdout on the social spending bill that is still being negotiated.

A source familiar confirmed the meeting between Manchin and Jayapal, while Sanders and Manchin, leaving the Capitol on Monday night, told reporters that they had also met.

In-Depth: Can a simple technique during COVID vaccination stop myocarditis?

Aspiration techniqueSome newly published research suggests the rare cases of heart inflammation linked to the COVID-19 vaccines might be caused by an accidental injection in the wrong spot.

All of the authorized vaccines are designed to be injected into a muscle, not a blood vessel.

Research published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases in August found mice injected with mRNA into a vein developed heart inflammation, called myopericarditis. Mice injected in the proper location, the muscle, did not.

Although experts are cautious about drawing conclusions from animal studies, the paper has unleashed a long-simmering debate about whether healthcare providers should take additional steps to ensure a needle doesn’t inadvertently enter a vein during vaccination.

Trump Sues Jan. 6 Committee To Block Archived Presidential Documents

Trump sues to keep Jan 6 docs secretFormer President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection, an attempt to block lawmakers from accessing archived presidential documents.

In the Monday complaint that also addressed the National Archives, the former president called the committee’s probe into the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol an “illegal fishing expedition.” Violent Trump supporters attempted to infiltrate the Capitol with the intent of overturning the election.

Trump tried to cite executive privilege as a reason for keeping information out of the committee’s reach. The president is no longer an executive; he is a civilian.

Qualified immunity: Supreme Court sides with police, overturns denial of immunity in two cases

SCOTUSThe Supreme Court sided Monday with police in two cases in which plaintiffs claimed officers used excessive force, overturning separate lower court rulings that had allowed the officers to be sued for civil rights violations.

In two unsigned opinions, the court stressed police are entitled to be shielded from liability unless it is "clear to a reasonable officer" that their actions are unlawful. In both cases the court ruled that the officers were entitled to qualified immunity, the legal doctrine that protects police from liability for civil rights violations in many circumstances.

In one case, the Supreme Court overturned a lower court ruling that found an officer in California who placed his knee on a prone suspect could be sued. In another, it overturned a lower court ruling that two police officers in Oklahoma could be sued because their actions before a fatal shooting escalated the potential for violence.

Colin Powell, first Black US secretary of state, dies of Covid-19 complications amid cancer battle

Colin Powell dies at 84Republican administrations helped shape American foreign policy in the last years of the 20th century and the early years of the 21st, has died from complications from Covid-19, his family said on Facebook. He was 84.

"General Colin L. Powell, former U.S. Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, passed away this morning due to complications from Covid 19," the Powell family wrote on Facebook, noting he was fully vaccinated.
A source familiar with the matter said Powell had multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells that suppresses the body's immune response. Even if fully vaccinated against Covid-19, those who are immunocompromised are at greater risk from the virus.
"We have lost a remarkable and loving husband, father, grandfather and a great American," the family said.

90 Seconds of Rage Outside the Capitol on Jan 6th

90 seconds of rageThe American flag became a blunt instrument in the bearded man’s hands. Wielding the flagpole like an ax, he swung once, twice, three times, to beat a police officer being dragged down the steps of a United States Capitol under siege.

Other officers also fell under mob attack, while the rest fought to keep the hordes from storming the Capitol and upending the routine transfer of power. Sprayed chemicals choked the air, projectiles flew overhead and the unbridled roars formed a battle-cry din — all as a woman lay dying beneath the jostling scrum of the Jan. 6 riot.
