The Navy Accuses A Sailor Of Starting One Of Its Worst Ship Fires Outside Of Combat

Navy charges sailor with arson of shipThe U.S. Navy charged a sailor Thursday with starting a fire last year that destroyed the USS Bonhomme Richard docked off San Diego, marking the maritime branch's worst warship blaze outside of combat in recent memory.

The amphibious assault ship burned for more than four days. Left with extensive structural, electrical and mechanical damage, the ship was later scrapped. Estimates to replace it ran up to $4 billion.

The sailor was a member of the crew at the time, Cmdr. Sean Robertson, a U.S. 3rd Fleet spokesperson, said in a statement. The sailor was charged with aggravated arson and the willful hazarding of a vessel, Robertson said. No name was released.

No other details were provided, and it was unclear what evidence was found or what the motive was.

US states brace for ‘avalanche’ of evictions as federal moratorium ends

Avalance of evictions coming in USFor months, Denise Forcer would get stressed just by opening her closet. The crush of belongings stuffed inside reminded her she didn’t know where she would go or what she would do if her landlord followed through with the eviction notices they kept posting on the door of her south Florida apartment.

“I thought I was going to have a breakdown, I really did,” Forcer, 51, told the Guardian. “I didn’t know when those people were going to come banging on my door or put up another paper.”

Biden Calls On States To Give $100 To Every Newly Vaccinated Person

President BidenPresident Joe Biden has called on state and local governments to give $100 to those who opt to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

The White House said the new plan will incentivize the vaccine-hesitant to go get their shots.

“When the grocery store Kroger started offering $100 to their associates to get vaccinated, it saw vaccination rates increase from 50% to 75%,” the White House said in a statement. “States like New Mexico, Ohio, and Colorado have piloted $100 incentive programs that have also helped move the dial on vaccinations.”

Along with offering $100 to get vaccinated, Biden also announced that small- and medium-sized businesses will be reimbursed for offering paid leave to employees who still need to get vaccinated.

The White House announced the new plan Thursday as the dangerous delta variant continues to spread across the U.S. and some states lag behind in vaccination rates.

Sunisa Lee wins all-around gold, a 5th-straight for U.S. in women’s gymnastics

Sunisa Lee wins all around gold  medal in gymnastics

Sunisa Lee wanted to quit during quarantine.

It all had become too much. The lingering pain from a broken foot. The deaths of two family members from COVID-19. Her father’s slow recovery from an accident that left him paralyzed.

The urge eventually passed. It always does. Still, less than two months ago the 18-year-old gymnast hobbled around the podium at the U.S. championships, getting by more on grit than anything else.

Tokyo seemed far away. The top of the Olympic podium, even further.

Then suddenly, there she was on Thursday night as a tinny version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” echoed across Ariake Gymnastics Centre. Gold medal around her neck. A watch party back home among the Hmong-American community in her native Minnesota raging. A victory she never envisioned not yet sinking in.

Rep. Tim Ryan defends mask mandate, blasts Kevin McCarthy: 'Just stop with this craziness'

Tim Ryan blasts McCarthy over mask mandateU.S. Rep. Tim Ryan blasted the top House Republican as immature on Wednesday, after GOP lawmakers criticized the reinstatement of a blanket mask mandate in Congress.

The Ohio Democrat's comments came after Congress' attending physician directed House officials to wear face coverings but issued only a recommendation for the Senate. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention this week called on Americans, regardless of vaccination status, to don masks inside if they live in areas with substantial or high transmission of the virus.

The agency previously said people who got the jab could ditch masks, but health officials have renewed the guidance as cases of the delta variant climb across the country — particularly in states with low vaccination rates.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy spoke at length against the new requirement Wednesday, accusing Speaker Nancy Pelosi and physician Brian Monahan of following bad science.

Ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick charged with sexually assaulting teenage boy in 1970s

Theodore McCarrick

Former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick has been charged with the alleged sexual assault of a teenage boy in Massachusetts, the first criminal charge to be brought against the prelate since he was accused years ago of abusing seminary students in New Jersey, making him the highest-ranking church official to face such charges.

Court records show that McCarrick was charged with three counts of indecent assault and battery on a person 14 years old or older — all related to incidents at a wedding in June 1974 in Wellesley, Massachusetts.

A criminal complaint says the accuser was 16 at the time and was later abused at other locations in Massachusetts and in other states, including New Jersey.

Breakthrough COVID infections after vaccination can lead to long-haul symptoms, Israeli study shows

Covid reinfections can last long time

Nearly 3% of medical workers in a new Israeli study contracted COVID-19 even though they were vaccinated, and 19% of them still had symptoms six weeks later.

Although the vaccines were never expected to be perfect, the findings raise questions about their protection and suggest that even vaccinated people could experience long-term symptoms such as such as fatigue, brain fog and shortness of breath.

Dr. Ashish Jha, dean of the Brown University School of Public Health, said he finds it concerning – though not conclusive – that people had lingering symptoms weeks after getting sick.

"There really may be a risk here, but we don't know how big a risk and how much of a problem it is," he said.

Most of the people in the study who got sick had mild symptoms, and none were hospitalized.
