Virus cases spike in California county on Mexican border 1

EL CENTRO, Calif. (AP) — As much of California begins reopening businesses amid improved coronavirus conditions, a farming region on the state’s border with Mexico is experiencing a spike in hospitalizations that some believe is driven by American citizens who live in Mexico coming to the U.S. for care.

How quickly different parts of California reopen is driven by the ability by country officials to control the virus. So the surge in the Imperial Valley region could hurt its perpetually struggling economy, which is heavily intertwined with the large industrial city of Mexicali, Mexico.

Senate Stock Insider Trading Scandal

Four Senators are implicated in insider stock trading scandal.

  • Richard Burr, R-North Carolina, Intelligence Committee Chairman
  • Kelly Loeffler, R-Georgia (husband, who also sold stocks during this time period, is head of the NYSE)
  • James M. Inhofe, R-Oklahoma, Chairman of Armed Services Committee
  • Dianne Feinstein, D-California, Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee

Most shocking of all is Kelly Loeffler’s husband, Jeffrey Sprecher, is chairman of the New York Stock Exchange! He sold a bunch of stock, too.

Collegian, 20, Busted For Relieving Himself From Above Onto Pair Of Female Victims | The Smoking Gun

Meet Jack DeBrabander.

The Michigan State University student was arrested early Saturday morning on two battery counts after allegedly urinating off the balcony of a Florida nightclub and striking two women below “in the face, mouth, head, hands, and arms.”

The 20-year-old DeBrabander, cops say, was intoxicated when he “stepped to the railing” of a balcony above the 260 First club in St. Petersburg around 12:25 AM. He then “removed his penis from his pants, and proceeded to urinate on” the two victims, who were seated downstairs on a sidewalk bench.
