Politically polarized brains share an intolerance of uncertainty — ScienceDaily

Since the 1950s, political scientists have theorized that political polarization — increased numbers of “political partisans” who view the world with an ideological bias — is associated with an inability to tolerate uncertainty and a need to hold predictable beliefs about the world.

The Harley Street doctors charging for cannabis treatments 

The smart entrance to the Sapphire Medical Clinic looks much like any other private practice on Harley Street in London. But there is something very different about this one.

Will US reach herd immunity soon? Some experts say it’s unlikely

Despite the Biden administration’s celebration of 100 million Americans fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the U.S. may never reach the ultimate goal of herd immunity because 20 percent of Americans don’t want the shots and variants have pushed the immunity threshold above 70 percent of the population.  As of Monday, 31.6 percent of Americans are inoculated […]

A summer third wave: it’s the nightmare scenario we all are hoping won’t happen when Britain opens up for business on June 21.

Covid: Russia says Sputnik jab DOESN’T cause rare complication linked to AstraZeneca and J&J’s jab

Russia waded into the coronavirus vaccine safety debate today with a PR blitz to claim its Sputnik jab does not cause the rare blood clots that have blighted others.

In just over a week, millions of Britons will be dining at restaurants, returning to exercise classes and, at long last, getting a haircut.

Opinion: Potato Head is getting with the times. So should Congress

Hasbro has announced it is dropping the gendered honorific “Mr.” from the brand name of its popular Potato Head toy.

Opinion: Obama and Springsteen’s podcast reveals a key problem

The podcast’s release comes in the midst of a bit of controversy caused by the musician half of the duo (Springsteen’s Super Bowl ad for Jeep had been pulled after news broke that he had been charged with a DWI; that charge has been dropped and the ad returned to airwaves). But even before the […]

Questions grow about discrimination’s role in the hurdles Biden’s nominees are facing

It’s not yet possible to make hard data comparisons with past administrations, in part because the confirmation process is ongoing and in part because Biden’s picks have been more diverse overall. But there is a growing sense of frustration about the obstacles that some of these nominees are facing. “The principle here is — is […]

Biden doesn’t penalize crown prince despite promise to punish senior Saudi leaders

The choice not to punish Prince Mohammed directly puts into sharp relief the type of decision-making that becomes more complicated for a president versus a candidate, and demonstrates the difficulty in breaking with a troublesome ally in a volatile region. On Friday, Biden’s administration released an unclassified intelligence report on Khashoggi’s death, an action his […]

Khashoggi’s fiancé says she is more “devastated than ever before”

The US intelligence community just released a report on Jamal Khashoggi’s murder. Its basic conclusion was not expected to be a surprise.

House vote key first step for Democrats’ stimulus plans

This package, the culmination of weeks of behind-the-scenes work by a dozen committees, a strategic and aggressive lobbying campaign targeted both inside and outside the beltway, and the “iron fist” of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi keeping her troops in line, is major. If it felt smooth, uneventful or quiet, it’s because you are dealing with […]

Covid relief bill: The House is set for a historic down payment on Biden’s legacy

Yet the extreme circumstances of a pandemic, an ex-President’s impeachment trial and a partisan split over the contents of the legislation have so far tended to obscure the Covid relief plan’s significance. The bill, which the House of Representatives is expected to pass Friday with Democratic votes, has the symbolic weight and financial power to […]

Nancy Pelosi’s first months of the new Congress: ‘Captain of a ship in uncharted waters’

It’s a sign of Democrats’ willingness to back the President on his first big legislative push and a reflection of Pelosi’s firm hold on the caucus that may prove her most challenging yet. In her fourth term as speaker, Pelosi is managing the slimmest majority in her tenure, a challenge even for a seasoned leader […]

Proud Boys leader has no sympathy for lawmakers targeted by Capitol riot

 ”I’m not gonna cry about people who don’t give a crap about their constituents.

Congressional Republicans risk backlash as they unite against Biden’s Covid relief plan

Democrats and GOP at odds over scope of commission to investigate Capitol riots

Republicans are balking at a plan put forward by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to create an outside commission with more Democrats than Republicans, and one whose mandate they say would go beyond just the security failures of the January 6 insurrection.

Congress rocked by consequential battles that will shape Biden’s presidency

After four years of politics by tweeted decree, normal service is resuming inside the Beltway in all its brutal, hypocritical, and high-stakes glory as everyone with power tries to wield it to set the tone for the coming years.

Fracking and Deb Haaland: How to view the Senate debate

The immigration debate has a blind spot

“Without immigration it becomes increasingly impossible to sustain entitlements, much less a functioning health care system, or a local tax base in rural and suburban cities and communities across the country,” says Ali Noorani, president of the National Immigration Forum, a centrist immigration advocacy group. After Trump sought to slash legal immigration through legislative and […]

$15 minimum wage debate: Everything you need to know

Improving worker pay is unrelated in that raising the minimum wage has long been a Democratic priority. It is completely related in that the Covid economy has hurt low wage workers — those in food service, child care and home health care, for instance, who can’t work from home — more than it’s hurt people […]

Malcolm X: We can finally meet the real man (opinion)

No less than Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X hovers over this national moment of reckoning around racial justice.

Lawmakers call Biden’s Yemen policy ‘historic shift’ in US foreign relations

In 2017, Khanna, a progressive Democrat from California, introduced a measure that came to be known as the Yemen War Powers resolution.

Opinion: Mitch McConnell may still get the last laugh

Why the Republican Party is poised to tear itself apart

“Mr. Trump may run again, but he won’t win another national election. He lost re-election before the events of Jan. 6, and as President his job approval never rose above 50%.
