Americans Should Brace for 100,000 New COVID Cases a Day, Experts Say
"You should be prepared for how bad it's going to get."The words of Dr. William Haseltine, an internationally renowned infectious disease expert, summarized the resounding—and sobering—takeaway from several public health experts and epidemiologists who spoke to The Daily Beast on Saturday, hours after the U.S. smashed its previous record of new daily COVID-19 cases. The country hit 83,757 reported infections in one day on Friday, while hospitalizations skyrocketed across the nation by 40 percent.The problem, experts say, isn't Friday's number. It's the upward trajectory."It's going to get a lot worse," said Dr. Haseltine, who was at the heart of the U.S response to the HIV/AIDS and anthrax crises. "We're looking at easily an excess of 100,000 infections a day and overwhelmed hospitals all over the country."Haseltine said that prediction was supported by several factors: The weather will only get colder, forcing people indoors. Flu season is approaching. The holidays will tempt people to gather in groups. There are no silver bullets coming. The smaller—but still devastating—peaks in the spring and the summer were largely contained to specific regions of the United States."Now it's just about everywhere across the country," said Haseltine, noting that cases are impacting more age groups, environments, and facilities. While many states saw clusters originating in meatpacking plants, prisons, and retirement facilities earlier in the year, they're now being traced more often back to private family gather

Rep. Stefanik: ‘Joe Biden Is Lying to the American People' about Hunter's Business Dealings
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is "lying to the American people" about his son Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings, claimed Representative Elise Stefanik (R., N.Y.) on Saturday.The House Intelligence Committee member's comments came during an appearance on Fox & Friends Weekend, in which she accused the former vice president of lying when he issued his denial of wrongdoing during Thursday night's presidential debate. Stefanik detailed her experience asking each witness in President Trump's impeachment hearings whether there was a conflict of interest, or an appearance of one, created by Hunter Biden's role on the board of Ukrainian natural-gas firm Burisma Holdings during Joe Biden's time as vice president. All of the witnesses said yes, she recalled.She said the Obama administration "proactively brought this up as a conflict of interest" while preparing former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch for her Senate nomination. "This is Joe Biden running from his record and trying to wipe away this very clear conflict of interest," Stefanik said."This is not just a Hunter Biden scandal. This is a Joe Biden scandal, and it's not just Burisma. It's also now the Chinese Communist government and the Chinese Communist Party," she added, referring to allegations of a business arrangement between a Chinese company and the Biden family.During Thursday's debate, the former vice president claimed there was "nothing unethical" about Hunter

Robin Williams Comic Genius


The title of this DVD goldmine for fans of Robin Williams' stand-up and improv work can be described with a word that Williams used frequently in his acts over the decades: Redundant. After his singular success in stand-up, film, and TV, everyone should know at this point that the Comic Genius description comes prepackaged with the name. It was for me when I first came to San Francisco for grad school in late 2002, but I mostly knew of Williams' genius through his film roles, a cornucopia of comedic and dramatic work that showcased his immensely versatile talent.

But I didn't know much about his stand-up work, coming from a country where his HBO specials weren't available. A San Francisco native who became a beloved figure of the city as his fame rose; he represented the perfect welcome for me as I bought his 2002 Live on Broadway special on DVD on my first day in th...Read the entire review
