Carrie Ann Inaba doesn't care what fans think of her critiques on "Dancing With the Stars." The 52-year-old television personality opened up about receiving backlash over her judging on "DWTS" during Tuesday's episode of "The Talk." "I still get bullied. Right about this time is when people start to bully me because of the way I judge people. I can’t believe it still happens as adults,” she said, per Us Weekly. The star caught flack online for criticizing the dance performed by Kaitlyn Bristowe and Artem Chigvintsev.

USPS disregards court order to conduct sweeps in 12 postal districts after more than 300,000 ballots can’t be traced – The Washington Post

USPS disregards court order to conduct sweeps in 12 postal districts after more than 300,000 ballots can’t be traced – The Washington Post

But in a filing sent to the court just before 5 p.m., Justice Department attorneys representing the Postal Service said the agency would not abide by the order, to better accommodate inspectors’ schedules. Attorney John Robinson, writing for the Justice Department, noted that the daily review process was already scheduled to occur from 4 to 8 p.m. on election night. “Given the time constraints set by this Court’s order, and the fact that Postal Inspectors operate on a nationwide basis, Defendants were unable to accelerate the daily review process to run from 12:30 pm to 3:00 pm without significantly disrupting preexisting activities on the day of the Election, something which Defendants did not understand the Court to invite or require.” The agency disclosed Tuesday morning that 300,523...
Lung damage found in COVID dead may shed light on long COVID: study – Yahoo News

Lung damage found in COVID dead may shed light on long COVID: study – Yahoo News

By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - A study of the lungs of people who have died from COVID-19 has found persistent and extensive lung damage in most cases and may help doctors understand what is behind a syndrome known as 'long COVID', in which patients suffer ongoing symptoms for months. Scientists leading the research said they also found some unique characteristics of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, which may explain why it is able to inflict such harm. "The findings indicate that COVID-19 is not simply a disease caused by the death of virus-infected cells, but is likely the consequence of these abnormal cells persisting for long periods inside the lungs," said Mauro Giacca, a professor at King’s College London who co-led the work. The research team analysed samples of ti...
Mitch McConnell wins Kentucky Senate race, defeating Amy McGrath – Vox.com

Mitch McConnell wins Kentucky Senate race, defeating Amy McGrath – Vox.com

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has defeated Democratic challenger Amy McGrath in the 2020 battle for his Kentucky US Senate seat. Even with McGrath’s stunning fundraising numbers and in a year widely expected to be good for Democrats, McConnell was a favorite in the race. Kentucky is a very conservative state, which President Donald Trump won by nearly 30 points in 2016. The polling consistently showed McConnell ahead, sometimes by double digits, and FiveThirtyEight’s election forecast gave McConnell a 95 percent chance to win. Still, McConnell could lose in another way: With other Senate races across the country, it’s possible — even likely, based on the FiveThirtyEight forecast — that Democrats could win control of the Senate. That would effectively demote McConnell from...

How Masks, Hand Sanitizer and Covid-19 Have Affected the 2020 Election – The New York Times

CLEVELAND — They voted from cars and at outdoor tables. They stood in lines spaced far apart. They strapped on masks and pumped sanitizer into their palms. All across America on Tuesday, voters cast ballots in a presidential election in which the uncontrolled coronavirus pandemic was both a top issue and a threat. As millions of Americans turned out to vote, the nation was facing a rapidly escalating pandemic that is concentrated in some of the very states seen as critical in determining the outcome of the presidential race. From Wisconsin to North Carolina, infections were on the rise as the nation barreled toward 10 million total cases. The virus that has left millions of people out of work and killed more than 230,000 people in the United States will be one of the most significant cha...

A candidate needs to win 270 electoral college votes (50% plus one) to win the election. In every state except two – Maine and Nebraska – the candidate that gets the most votes wins all of the...

Comcast, Walmart in talks to develop and distribute smart TVs – Fox Business

Comcast Corp. is in talks with Walmart Inc. to develop and distribute smart TVs, according to people familiar with the matter, as the cable giant looks to become a dominant hub for streaming apps, not just TV channels. Under the terms the companies are discussing, retail giant Walmart would promote TV sets running Comcast software, and would get a share of recurring revenue from Comcast in return, the people said. A third party would likely manufacture the sets, and one possibility is that they could carry Walmart branding,...
