Portland Riots Read-out: August 7
Activity in the vicinity of the Mark O. Hatfield Federal Courthouse once again remained peaceful - in sharp contrast to the violent nightly siege of previous weeks. Thursday evening marked a fifth consecutive night with zero attacks directed at federal officers or federal property. The change is directly attributable to the long-awaited cooperation from state and local law enforcement, which began last week, but should have been the case all along. 

However, Portland's rioters have not stopped and are instead focusing their attacks on local law enforcement officers and buildings elsewhere in the city. In doing so, violent anarchists have employed many of the same violent tactics previously used in the federal courthouse siege. Thursday night, Portland Police Bureau (PPB) reported that it had declared yet another unlawful and riotous assembly - the fourth in four consecutive nights - as rioters attacked state and local officers and the East Precinct building. Unlike the courthouse siege, however, the nightly violence against PPB officers and property has drawn the condemnation of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who said in a press conference that the activity "is not peaceful protests."

Once again, there were no attacks directed at federal law enforcement or property. Crowd size in the vicinity of the federal courthouse peaked at less than 100 people and remained peaceful.

DHS officers conducted zero arrests and reported zero injuries or damage to federal property.

Miles away from the courthouse, PPB reported that it declared an unlawful assembly just before 10 p.m. local time, after rioters vandalized the East Precinct building and attacked security cameras. The report also added, that after the declaration, rioters set a garbage can on fire and pushed it up against the building. As PPB and OSP officers worked to disperse the crowd, they were attacked with hard projectiles such as g

Black Voters Know Biden Is Clumsy—and That Trump Is a Menace
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/GettyOh, Joe. Let's clear up just a few things so we can move on.

A few weeks after telling Black people that "you ain't Black" if you're not supporting him over Donald Trump, the presumptive Democratic nominee this week declared that "Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly diverse attitudes about different things" — which many interpreted as his belief that there was little to no ideological or ethnic diversity among Blacks living in the U.S. 

As the author of Black Ethnics: Race, Immigration, and the Pursuit of the American Dream, I have a few things to say to Biden, and anyone who may be confused by this latest mini-tempest, which he apologized for on Thursday night. First, Black voters know who Joe Biden is. He's been a public servant for over 40 years and faithfully served as the number two to the first Black president.

DHS Initiating Crucial Research to Mitigate COVID-19
Washington - The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is conducting ongoing research that will help scientists better understand the coronavirus that causes the disease known as COVID-19, and methods to prevent its spread. In the Trump Administration's whole of government effort, this work is being done at the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC) laboratory in cooperation with the DHS Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office. As results become available, NBACC will provide updates on their findings to DHS and response agencies, especially those that may immediately impact efforts to mitigate transmission.

"With this critical research, we are advancing the country's top priority in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19," said William N. Bryan, DHS Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Under Secretary for Science and Technology. "This will help us understand many of the factors that influence the persistence of the virus on surfaces or in the air, and what methods are most effective for disinfecting potentially contaminated surfaces." 

There is currently only limited information available about the virus, so researchers at the NBACC are working very aggressively to answer the many questions experts have about its survivability and transmission. Using the lab's unique capabilities, the researchers are evaluating the impact of a range of conditions, like temperature and humidity, to determine the virus's survivability in the air, in respiratory fluids and on various types of surfaces.

The results of this work will provide essential information to protect those responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, including first responders and health care providers, as well as provide best practices for individuals to reduce potential for contamination. A disinfectant stu
