Protesters Prevent Police from Investigating Stabbing Outside of Portland Courthouse
A "hostile crowd" prevented Portland police from investigating a stabbing at the site of nightly racial justice protests and rioting on Monday. A woman had walked into Lownsdale Square park in downtown Portland and was taking photos or recording video just before 6:30 p.m. when an argument began between the woman and other people in the park. The woman who had been taking photos then brandished a knife and stabbed another woman in the chest.Officers were met with a "hostile crowd" on the scene and were forced to bring in reinforcements to the area. As police were trying to secure the crime scene, someone picked up the knife used in the stabbing and ran off with it, Portland police said. Supervisors made the decision to disengage after officers could not safely conduct an investigation in the presence of the crowd.The suspect fled the area but later returned and was interviewed by police. The victim, whom officers found a few blocks away at SW 5th Ave and SW Taylor Street, was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The city has experienced months of rioting and unrest following the death of George Floyd, leading to the deployment of federal agents to the city. Rioters have repeatedly used violence to target the federal courthouse there, attacking federal law enforcement with various weapons including Molotov cocktails, and in some cases blinding officers with lasers.While Oregon elected officials demanded the removal of federal

Prominent Muslims to grace Hindu temple ceremony on contested India site
In a gesture of reconciliation, two prominent Muslims who lived through deadly riots following the razing of a mosque in northern India in 1992 plan to attend the foundation-laying ceremony for a Hindu temple on Wednesday on the same site, they said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, whose Hindu nationalist party has been leading the demand for a temple there dedicated to the god-king Ram, is expected to be the chief guest at the event in Ayodhya town. Construction was made possible by a verdict late last year from the Supreme Court of India awarding the disputed site to the Hindus, and the planned visit by the two well-known Muslims underscored an easing of animosity between followers of the two religious faiths in one of Hindu-majority India's most communally sensitive regions.

Navarro Throws Another White House Health Expert Under Bus Over Hydroxy
White House trade adviser Peter Navarro publicly bashed yet another White House public-health expert on Monday while touting an unproven anti-malarial drug, saying he took "exception" to coronavirus testing czar Brett Giroir dismissing hydroxychloroquine as an effective coronavirus treatment.Days after CNN cut short a Navarro interview after he kept repeating the racist phrase "China virus," the network invited him on for yet another contentious segment that featured the combative Trump aide disseminating coronavirus disinformation.Navarro, who has been an outspoken proponent of hydroxychloroquine and has repeatedly attacked top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci for warning about the drug's lack of efficacy, doubled down on his embrace of the drug while taking aim at Giroir."One of the president's chief advisers on the coronavirus pandemic, Adm. Giroir, he said given five studies now that have found the drug hydroxychloroquine—that there's no proof that it helps with COVID-19 patients," host Jim Sciutto noted. "I just wonder, given your past public support for it, is it time for the administration to focus on proven treatments for COVID rather than one that has not been proven?"Navarro—who recently groused that the government is "sitting on millions of doses" of the drug—shot back that he takes "exception to Giroir's analysis, adding that the HHS official "hasn't looked at the data" within the past two weeks."It's his job to look at data," Sciutto interjected.After demanding that C

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly star in Holmes & Watson as the legendary detectives in a funny and surprising take on the team's pairing. Really, though, it's more about the chemistry between the actors, who previously starred together in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Step Brothers, as it is about any sort of mystery. (By the way, Reilly also appeared in a cameo role in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, which featured Ferrell in the starring role.) Two upcoming comedies offer new different, surprising takes on material that has been previously told. The third is a sequel that may be the final installment in a long-running series and may offer a big surprise in its resolution. Here's what we know about three movies that we hope will amuse us...
