Sinema has left DC. Medical appointment and fund raiser.

Sinema, a holdout on the social spending bill, returns to Arizona for a doctor’s visit and a scheduled fund-raiser.

With Democrats pleading for a deal on a hard-fought social safety net bill, one of the key holdouts, Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, left Washington on Friday. The reason, her spokesman said, was a medical appointment for a foot injury.

But on Saturday, she is also scheduled to attend her political action committee’s “retreat” with donors at a high-end resort and spa in Phoenix, three different sources confirmed, including an attendee. The hotel also confirmed the event, which kicks off with a cocktail reception at 5:30 p.m., Saturday, followed by a dinner.

Fund-raising for lawmakers is, of course, not unusual, but Ms. Sinema’s timing is sure to raise the level of frustration that her fellow Democrats are already feeling toward the senator. President Biden and congressional Democratic leaders are trying to hammer out a framework agreement on a climate change and social policy bill that can pass with the votes of every Senate Democrat and virtually every House Democrat.

"COVID restless anus syndrome" Google said it was a reading search so I looked it up

Yeah it’s the New York Post butt I just had to look it up. There are other sources too.

COVID-19’s latest bizarre side effect: ‘Restless anal syndrome’

A newly published medical report by doctors in Japan has revealed a mysterious condition associated with the disease called “restless anal syndrome.” Its name is likened to the more commonly discussed restless legs syndrome (RLS) and describes exactly one 77-year-old patient’s afflictions.

He told physicians that he began suffering “deep anal discomfort” in the area between his anus and genitals, prompting him with the “essential urge to move” his bowels — which gave him no relief, according to their paper, available to read via “BMC Infectious Diseases.”

That’s when doctors reckoned his awkward condition must be neurological, noting that his symptoms had manifested similar to RLS, which has been detected in at least two other recovered COVID-19 patients.

The connection between the disease and RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome) is not yet understood, said report author Dr. Itaru Nakamura. Nakamura’s patient, however, may be the first documented case of restless anal syndrome associated with COVID-19, he wrote.

The Problem with Jon Stewart - caught the the first 1/2 of the first show

It’s funny but he obviously couldn’t just redo the Daily Show. It’s like the last part of Jon Oliver’s show, a deep look into one topic. First topic was Military Veterans and Burn Pits. Not a very uplifting topic.

Panel discussion after his intro.

It’s still Jon Stewart though.

Former Olympic swimmer Klete Keller pleads guilty to storming U.S. Capitol

https://www.espn.com/olympics/story/_/id/32308155/former-olympic-swimmer-klete-keller-pleads-guilty-storming-us-capitol

WASHINGTON -- Five-time Olympic swimming medalist Klete Keller pleaded guilty Wednesday to a felony charge for storming the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot and faces 21 to 27 months in prison.

Keller acknowledged in court records that he tried to obstruct Congress' certification of President Joe Biden's Electoral College victory, brushed away officers who tried to remove him from the Capitol Rotunda and yelled profane comments about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer as he stood near officers wearing riot gear.

Keller, 39, who grew up in Arizona and now lives in Colorado Springs, competed in the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Summer Olympics. He won two golds and a silver as a member of the 800-meter freestyle relay, as well as a pair of individual bronzes in the 400 free.

He pleaded guilty to obstruction of an official proceeding and agreed to cooperate with authorities as part of his plea deal.

NBA: No pay if unvaccinated players can't play (SF & NYC)

Players who are forced to miss games due to the executive orders governing vaccination requirements in both New York and San Francisco will not be paid for any games they miss.

"Any player who elects not to comply with local vaccination mandates will not be paid for games that he misses," Mike Bass, the NBA's executive vice president of communications, said in a statement Wednesday morning.

Both cities passed executive orders in recent weeks that could affect the Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors. The order in New York, which applies to the Barclays Center, requires one COVID-19 shot. To enter San Francisco's Chase Center, a person must be fully vaccinated.

The executive orders governing the vaccine only apply to the players who play in those markets; out-of-market players are exempted from them.

The nuclear megayacht designed to save the world






If built, the new vessel, to be christened Earth 300 in reference to its length of 300 meters, or 984 feet, would dwarf even the world's largest superyacht -- the 590-foot long Azzam, owned by the Abu Dhabi royal family.

The preliminary design is sleek and bold, with a unique 13-story sphere that will house two dozen scientific laboratories. They will gather data from the ship's travels to hopefully come up with solutions to help mitigate the climate crisis.

Initially, the ship will use green synthetic fuels, but to satisfy the requirement of being completely emission-free, Olivera plans to eventually retrofit a molten-salt reactor, a modern type of nuclear reactor.

Flat-Earther NBA star Kyrie Irving misses media day due to vaxx requirements

Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving misses team media day due to NYC's COVID-19 proof-of-vaccine requirement

https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/32291549/sources-brooklyn-nets-star-kyrie-irving-miss-team-media-day-due-nyc-covid-19-proof-vaccine-requirement

BROOKLYN , N.Y. -- Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving did not attend the team's media day at Barclays Center on Monday because of New York City's COVID-19 protocols

Last month, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio issued an executive order that required New York City-area pro athletes to show proof of at least one vaccine shot to practice or play in the city.

“ That's on Kyrie and that's his personal decision. What he does is not on us to speculate what may happen," Nets star Kevin Durant said. "We trust in Kyrie, and I expect us to have our whole team at some point."

Last week, Nets general manager Sean Marks indicated that not all of the team's players have met that requirement, but he expected the team to be in compliance by the opening of the season next month.
