While President-elect Biden was talking earlier, I was crying.

I felt true hope again. The last four years has been so cold, like we were going backwards into dark times we evolved out of.

But Hope is back! We have a lot of work to do, but we can do it!

This song was running through my head as our leader talked. And I truly believe the best is yet to come, truly come.

Anyone able to help me understand this?

Why are there people out there that seems to believe covid is like the chicken pox? They seem to think that you get it once you have a lifetime immunity.

We know that it is not the case. It just make getting it again even more life threatening. They don't want to listen to doctors. Do they hate people and our country that much?

Yup. Can't agree more

Joe Biden
Wear a mask.

It's the easiest thing you can do to reduce COVID cases, hospitalizations, and deaths.

It's not a political statement — it's a patriotic act.

CBS- Biden officially secures Electoral College majority after California certifies votes

Biden officially secures Electoral College majority after California certifies votes
DECEMBER 5, 2020 / 7:26 AM / AP

California certified its presidential election Friday and appointed 55 electors pledged to vote for President-elect Biden, officially handing him the Electoral College majority needed to win the White House.

Secretary of State Alex Padilla's formal approval of Mr. Biden's win in the state brought his tally of pledged electors to 279, according to a tally from The Associated Press. That's just over the 270 threshold for victory.

These steps in the election are often ignored formalities. But the hidden mechanics of electing a U.S. president have drawn new scrutiny this year as President Trump continues to deny Mr. Biden's victory and pursues increasingly specious legal strategies aimed at overturning the results before they are finalized.

NBCNEWS- 'Rare' meteor triggers sonic boom, brilliant flash over Lake Ontario

'Rare' meteor triggers sonic boom, brilliant flash over Lake Ontario
“To have something so close to a major city, that's pretty rare,” an expert said.

A meteor crashed through the Earth’s atmosphere over New York state Wednesday, triggering a thunderous boom and a spectacular flash over Lake Ontario, officials said.

Bill Cooke, who leads NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office, said the meteor made its fiery entry traveling west and clocking speeds of 56,000 mph at 12:08 p.m. ET.

As the meteor broke into pieces at an altitude of 22 miles between Rochester and Syracuse, Cooke said, it created a sonic boom reportedly heard across New York.

Cyberattacks Discovered on Vaccine Distribution Operations

Cyberattacks Discovered on Vaccine Distribution Operations
IBM has found that companies and governments have been targeted by unknown attackers, prompting a warning from the Homeland Security Department.

Updated 7:12 p.m. ET

A series of cyberattacks is underway aimed at the companies and government organizations that will be distributing coronavirus vaccines around the world, IBM’s cybersecurity division has found, though it is unclear whether the goal is to steal the technology for keeping the vaccines refrigerated in transit or to sabotage the movements.

The findings were alarming enough that the Department of Homeland Security issued its own warning on Thursday about the threat.

Both the IBM researchers and the department’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said the attacks appear intended to steal the network log-in credentials of corporate executives and officials at global organizations involved in the refrigeration process necessary to protect vaccine doses.

A new metal monolith appeared out of nowhere in California, but it didn't last for long

How many of these are going to pop up and disappear?

A new metal monolith appeared out of nowhere in California, but it didn't last for long
David Williams and Kelsie Smith, CNN • Updated 3rd December 2020

(CNN) — A new metal monolith appeared in a California park just days after another mysterious monument disappeared from a remote spot in the Utah desert.

The silver pillar was reported Wednesday afternoon at the summit of Pine Mountain Loop at Stadium Park in Atascadero, which is nearly halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco

"We don't know how it got there and apparently its already disappeared," Deputy City Manger Terrie Banish told CNN. The Atascadero News reported that a group of men removed it early Thursday.

Banish said the city doesn't plan to investigate the monument, or its disappearance, but they will remove the rebar, or reinforcing rod, that was used to secure it to the ground because they don't want anyone to get hurt.

Want to give a DU shout out to Democrat Mayor of Tucson, Regina Romero.

She is in an uphill battle trying to protect the citizens of Tucson, including the homeless population.

Many of the citizens and some of those in city government is fighting her, but she still keeps trying to protect us during this pandemic.

Mayor Regina Romero, I thank you!
