Is anyone having issues with viewing tweets?

I didn't have any problems earlier, but now I can only see a link.

I have had this issue in the past, but discovered what was causing the problem (it was Ghostery). This is new.

NEW-- here is McConnell's revised coronavirus relief plan, being circulated among Republicans,...

NEW— here is McConnell’s revised coronavirus relief plan, being circulated among Republicans, obtained by WaPo. This one is supposed to have administration approval

McConnell now circulating a plan with:

- no state & local aid;
- only 1 additional month in PUA & PEUC for jobless Americans;
- no additional stimulus checks;
- Sen. Cornyny's proposed liability shield;
- no money for transit agencies

Elliot Page, star of 'Juno' and 'The Umbrella Academy,' comes out as transgender

Elliot Page, who currently stars on Netflix's "The Umbrella Academy," came out as transgender on Tuesday.

"I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey," Page, who was previously known as Ellen Page, wrote.

"I can't begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self. I've been endlessly inspired by so many in the trans community."

Page went on to write that although he feels "profoundly happy" about sharing his story, he's also scared "of the invasiveness, the hate, the 'jokes' and of the violence."


Hey Michiganders... guess who went hiking at Sleeping Bear Dunes?

We can now officially call him the "former loneliest elephant in the world"! Seeing Kaavan interacting with other elephants is a huge moment for us but more importantly for Kaavan.
We are extremely moved!


Bipartisan group of senators prepares $908 billion stimulus plan, aiming to break partisan logjam

Source: WaPo

A bipartisan group of senators is expected to unveil an approximately $908 billion stimulus proposal on Tuesday, aiming to break a months-long partisan impasse over providing emergency federal relief to the U.S. economy, according to four people aware of internal negotiations.

Congress has faced increasing pressure to approve additional economic relief since talks between the White House and House Democrats collapsed, first over the summer and then again in the fall ahead of the Nov. 3 presidential election.

Failure to reach an agreement could have serious consequences for the economy and millions of Americans. A number of critical relief programs are set to expire at the end of the year; 12 million Americans are on pace to lose their jobless benefits, and protections for renters and student borrowers are also set to expire.

With negotiations between congressional leaders at an impasse, rank-and-file senators in both parties have for several weeks quietly discussed putting together a bipartisan proposal that could break the logjam. Several centrist and dealmaker types in the Senate — including Sens. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.), Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) — are expected to push their new bipartisan agreement as a template for legislation that could pass Congress as the economy faces increasing strain from a winter surge in coronavirus cases.
