    “Why Arizona’s election ‘audit’ matters (even outside of Arizona)”
    “It’s tempting to roll one’s eyes at the new “audit” of election results in Arizona, but the dangers associated with this nonsensical circus are real.”
    “The idea, obviously, is to create a new truth for Republicans,
    at which point pro-Trump forces can exploit the lie to justify new voter-suppression efforts and perhaps even related efforts in other states, where Republicans can hire Cyber Ninjas of their own.”

    “A 10-year-old transgender girl and the supportive mother of a trans child are getting death threats after their testimony before the Texas legislature went viral.”
    “S.B. 1646 would redefine child abuse to include “consenting to or assisting in the administering or supplying of, a puberty suppression prescription drug or cross-sex hormone to a child,” as well as other gender-affirming health care procedures, even though puberty blockers are reversible and have been found to significantly reduce suicidal thoughts for trans people.”

      Growing veggies:
      “As humans expand space exploration farther from Earth, the ability to grow a supplemental food crop
      is a solution to the challenge of long-duration missions into deep space….”

      “The Vegetable Production System (Veggie) is a plant growth unit on the International Space Station.
      “The Veggie concept is a simple, low-power sys- tem to grow fresh, nutritious food for our astro-nauts to supplement their diet and use as a tool to support relaxation and recreation.”
      “There are two Veggie units aboard the station, along with a more sophisticated growth chamber,
      the Advanced Plant Habitat…the Veggie hardware and the VEG-01 experiment flew to the space station as commercial cargo, part of NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services SpaceX CRS-3 mission that launched from Kennedy Space Center on April 18, 2014….Veggie runs on about 70 watts for the lights, fans and control electronics.

    Rick Hasen,
    Election Law Blog:

    “Cyber Ninjas, hired by Arizona Senate to recount Maricopa County’s ballots,
    asks court to keep its procedures secret”

    “Lawyers for Cyber Ninjas, the Florida-based company the Arizona Senate hired to lead a recount of Maricopa County’s 2.1 million general election ballots, are asking a judge to keep secret its procedures for the recount and shut out the public as well as the press from a hearing in which the documents might be discussed.

    Judge Christopher Coury asked the company on Friday to turn over its plans and procedures amid concerns about the security of the county’s ballots and voter privacy.

    But the company argued on Sunday that filing the documents in court publicly would compromise the security of its recount. And it argued that the records include protected trade secrets. The company also maintained that the documents are protected by legislative privilege, as it is working on behalf of the state Senate.

    The push to keep details of the recount process under wraps comes as part of a lawsuit that the Arizona Democratic Party and County Supervisor Steve Gallardo filed against the state Senate to stop the recount altogether, contending it violates various state election laws.”

    WHY do Black folks keep watching the Oscars? How is it possible that once again the Best Actor and Actress are White People? They even snatched it from a dead Black Actor!!!

    Really?

    I don’t watch and I’m glad I don’t set myself up for disappointment.

      Though Anthony Hopkins is beloved and now 83 years old, clearly he wasn’t expecting to win last night. Everyone expected Chadwick would be the last face we saw. imo it was incredibly hard to hear another eff you speech from a white curmudgeon….at the tail end of an otherwise lovely and inspiring diverse night !

        I have access to it, but no desire to watch it. I’m also peeved that Anthony felt he needed to absolve himself. He knew that Oscar rightfully belonged to the late Chadwick. He should have declined it.

    HOW do you get to mess with certified election ballots 5 months after the election?

    Why was the Cyber Ninjas-QAnon “steal” crowd not asked to WAIT until AFTER their plans had been looked at?

    If any tom dick and harry can do this and in secret too,
    and funded by tax payers too…

    CENSUS

    Dale Ho, Director, ACLU Voting Rights Project,
    speaks to Rachel Maddow.
    Maddow: “I want to know if we should think of the 2020 Census as a count that has an asterisk on it because of all the different ways the Trump administration really seemed to try to be screwing it up.”
    Ho:
    “Well we never had seen so many efforts to interfere with the Census politically, but I think it’s too early to say whether or not these numbers are as accurate as we would like them to be. We have a lot of reasons to be confident. There was no citizenship question on the census. Immigration status count didn’t count in the Census. And the Bureau didn’t had the time that it said it needed to process the data after the collection of Census responses took place. Trump failed in his effort to cut that time short.
    But there are reasons for concern. We have the COVID-19 pandemic which obviously made responses and outreach a lot more difficult. We had horrible anti-immigrant, xenophobic rhetoric spewed forth from the last administration. Which probably contributed to some reluctance to participate in the Census. And then as you noted, Census outreach itself was cut short by the administration.
    So there are reasons to be optimistic, but there are also reasons to be concerned.”

    • April 27, 2021 at 12:26 pm

      correction: “And the Bureau had the time that it said it needed to process…”

    • April 27, 2021 at 12:27 pm

      Maddow:
      “And Dale as we get more detailed information – obviously we just got top line numbers today.
      We don’t know even age numbers, let alone ethnicity or race numbers. We don’t even know geographic numbers within specific states. We just know raw population numbers for each state and for the country.
      As we get more, will potential problems be evident? I mean how much transparency do we have to know for example, if there was a community in a specific state that was really left out? Or if there was some place that otherwise had some sort of warping of their representation.”
      Ho:
      “Well I think as you noted Rachel, it’s a little early right now to speculate as to what problems may emerge. When we look at the Census data a little bit more closely. We do know that in June, the American Statistical Association will release its own review of the procedures and protocols that the Census Bureau used for its operations this time around. And then towards the end of the year, we’ll get a study from the Census Bureau itself which does its best to try to estimate whether or not there was any kind of undercount of particular populations, either nationally, or state by state, or within individual states.”

    “Obama Calls Myanmar Violence ‘Heartbreaking,’
    Says There Should Be Costs to Generals”

    “WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former U.S. President Barack Obama, who championed engagement with Myanmar’s military while in office to promote democratic change, said on Monday he was “appalled by heartbreaking violence” it had used against civilians after retaking power in a coup.

    In a rare statement, Obama said he supported efforts by the Biden administration and like-minded countries to impose costs on Myanmar’s generals.”

    https://abcnews.go.com/live/video/special-live-3

    • April 27, 2021 at 2:13 pm

      President Biden:
      “Cases are down and continuing to fall…less than 1% of seniors were fully vaccinated when I took office…now two thirds…drop in death by 80% among seniors…saving thousands of lives and more and more as each day goes by…proportion of seniors vaccinated is equal between white and seniors of color.
      I said we are going to fight this virus with equity, equity for all.

      …Last week I announced that we had crossed the threshold of 200 million shots…now 215 million shots…
      Earlier today the CDC made an important announcement…Starting today if you are fully vaccine and outdoors and not in a big crowd, you no longer need to wear a mask…if you are vaccinated you can do more things safely outdoors as well as indoors…this is another reason to go get vaccinated – now, now.
      …Helping you to get back to more normal living…so go get the shot, it’s never been easier.
      …I want to thank our team…and everyone who’s got the vaccine for doing their patriotic duty.
      Go get your vaccination now.”

      President Biden spoke about India…”sending immediately a whole series of healthcare needs…
      secondly we’re sending the actual mechanical parts needed to build a vaccine…discussion when we’ll be able to send actual vaccine…be able to share nohow as well as vaccine with other countries.”
