If Madison loses tonight he is welcome to appear on @thereidout tomorrow night to release the names of all the Republican congress members who took part in the cocaine orgies.


Seriously, I wonder how he is going to react.

Fetterman wins Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary

Source: The Hill

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman on Tuesday was projected to win the state’s Democratic Senate primary, overcoming a high-profile challenge from Rep. Conor Lamb in the race to fill retiring Sen. Pat Toomey’s (R) open seat.

The Associated Press called the race at 8:54 p.m. ET.

Fetterman, who also bested state Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta, held a consistent double-digit polling lead for much of the primary.

The three candidates were largely similar in their policies, but Fetterman was viewed more as a progressive candidate in part due to his past support for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), sharp barbs against Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), staunch advocacy for a $15 minimum wage and legalized marijuana and more. Lamb, a buttoned-up former marine and prosecutor, was largely pegged as a moderate.

Astrophotographers Around the World Share Their Best Photos of the Milky Way

The Milky Way has long been a source of fascination for scientists and astronomy lovers alike. And while researchers are busy imaging black holes in our galaxy, there are many astrophotographers who also focus their attention on the Milky Way. From Tibet to Utah to New Zealand and Chile, there are so many spectacular locations to view our galaxy. Luckily, Capture the Atlas is back with its annual roundup of the best Milky Way Photographers of the Year to show off just how amazing it is to see the galaxy from Earth.

Whether high up in the Alps or in a remote part of the desert, all of the photographers went to great lengths to get their Milky Way images. New Zealand, known for its incredible landscape, was a popular destination, as was Spain's Canary Islands. Both provide the clear sky and expansive environment needed to get a picture of the Milky Way that does the galaxy justice.

Of particular note is Uroš Fink‘s photograph, which was taken in Slovenia's Mangart Saddle. Located in the Julian Alps, it was the perfect place for the photographer to not only capture the Milky Way, but also the Perseid meteor shower. The result is an image where falling stars dance around the arcing bow of the Milky Way. Another standout is Alvin Wu‘s magical photo of the galaxy shining brightly over a frozen lake in Tibet. The fuchsia hues of the Milky Way contrast beautifully with the icy lake.

See more of our favorite Milky Way photographs from this year's roundup below. The full gallery of winners can be found on Capture the Atlas.

BREAKING: Michigan court stops enforcement of state's 1931 near-total abortion ban, which could go back into effect if Roe v. Wade is overturned. It's an early court win for Planned Parenthood.

Defendant in case is AG Dana Nessel, who agrees 1931 ban is unconstitutional & says she won't defend law. The judge, Elizabeth Gleicher, disagrees with AG's contention that there's no 'actual controversy' to resolve yet. (Plaintiffs said they needed a ruling now - judge agreed.)


#Breaking 🚨: The Michigan Court of Claims just granted our request for a preliminary injunction against Michigan's 1931 criminal abortion ban. This means abortion access is protected in Michigan while our full case against the outdated and unconstitutional law proceeds.

This is a victory for reproductive freedom in Michigan, and we will not stop until this dangerous law is blocked once and for all!
