Dramatically shorter worship services. No sermons. Huge outdoor tents. Excitement that technology is enlivening and making more intimate an ancient Jewish holiday. Despair that technology is sucking the life out of an ancient Jewish holiday.

The High Holidays, which begin Friday night with Rosh Hashanah, are the latest tradition to be upended by the novel coronavirus pandemic. According to the somber, introspective liturgy, this is the period when God decides who will live and who will die, when Jews are commanded to look hard at their own mortality and to make amends. It is the time of the year that draws more Jews to the synagogue than any other.

Chicago-area native Jerry Harris rocketed to fame earlier this year as the breakout star of the Netflix docuseries “Cheer,” parlaying his contagious exuberance into talk show appearances, an Oscars gig and more than a million Instagram followers.

But the young star’s image was shattered Thursday when FBI agents arrested him on child pornography charges, alleging he repeatedly coerced minor victims to send him obscene photos and videos of themselves and solicited sex from boys as young as 13 at cheerleading competitions.

Harris, 21, of Naperville, was charged in a criminal complaint with one count of production of child pornography, which carries a minimum of 15 years in prison upon conviction.

Prominent Democrats are threatening to expand the size of the Supreme Court to cancel out President Donald Trump’s court picks if Republicans vote on late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s replacement this year.

Left-wing activists have been pushing Democratic politicians to endorse court-packing since Justice Anthony Kennedy’s 2018 retirement cleared the way for Justice Brett Kavanaugh to join the high court. Some congressional Democrats embraced the idea following Ginsburg’s death Friday night.

“If Sen. McConnell and @SenateGOP were to force through a nominee during the lame duck session—before a new Senate and President can take office—then the incoming Senate should immediately move to expand the Supreme Court,” House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler wrote on Twitter Saturday.

“Filling the SCOTUS vacancy during a lame duck session, after the American people have voted for new leadership, is undemocratic and a clear violation of the public trust in elected officials,” added Nadler, a Democrat from New York.

“Congress would have to act and expanding the court would be the right place to start,” he said.

LOS ANGELES — Democratic donors smashed fundraising records after the death on Friday of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, funnelling more than US$90 million to candidates and progressive groups in just over 24 hours.

>>As Democrats and Republicans braced for a nomination fight that has upended the November presidential election, the online fundraising organization ActBlue said grassroots donors gave US$91.4 million to Democratic candidates and causes in the 28 hours after 8 p.m. Friday, around the time the news of Ginsburg’s death broke.

That figure, coming from 1.5 million donations, broke the all-time ActBlue records for dollars raised in one day and dollars raised in one hour, said Erin Hill, the non-profit’s executive director.

>>Donors gave US$70.6 million on Saturday alone, and US$6.3 million in one hour on Friday night, Hill said, beating the group’s previous records of US$41.6 million in one day and US$4.3 million in one hour.

The death of Ginsburg so close to the Nov. 3 election has energized both the Democratic base and Republican President Donald Trump’s core supporters. If Trump is able to install a conservative replacement for the liberal Ginsburg, the move would cement a 6-3 conservative majority on the court.

Much of the Democratic money will be poured into key Senate races, as the party seeks to retake control of the chamber in November, and also to pressure vulnerable Republican incumbents into opposing a move by Trump to install a new justice before the election.

"Republican Senators, like working families across the country, had hoped the Senate would be spending this week completing more bipartisan pandemic relief," McConnell said, speaking from the Senate floor. "Since Democrats are stonewalling pandemic relief, the Senate is using our time to confirm more well-qualified judicial nominees to lifetime positions on the federal bench."

The Senate's effort this week mirrors a similar pattern from last week – confirming five other nominees.

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Tens of thousands of Belarusians calling for the authoritarian president to resign marched through the capital Sunday as the country’s wave of protests entered its seventh week.

Hundreds of soldiers blocked off the center of Minsk, deploying water cannons and armored personnel carriers and erecting barbed wire barriers. Protests also took place in several other cities, including Brest and Grodno.

The crowd in Minsk included about 100,000 people, said Ales Bialiatski, head of the Viasna human rights organization. He said dozens of demonstrators were arrested in Minsk and Grodno.

Protests began Aug. 9 after an election that official results say gave President Alexander Lukashenko a sixth term in office; opponents and some poll workers say the results were manipulated.

Lukashenko, who has repressed opposition and independent news media during 26 years in power, has rejected suggestions of dialogue with the protesters. Many members of the Coordination Council that was formed by the opposition to push for a transition of power have been arrested or have fled the country.

The Minsk demonstrators carried the red-and-white flags that were independent Belarus’ national standard before being replaced in 1995, early in Lukashenko’s tenure. Some bore placards depicting Lukashenko as a mustachioed cockroach.

Although protests have taken place daily since the election, the Sunday gatherings in Minsk have been by far the largest, attracting crowds of as many as 200,000 people.

>>“Every Sunday, you are showing yourselves and the world that the Belarusian people are the power,” Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, who was Lukashenko’s main election opponent, said in a video message from Lithuania, where she is in exile.

The marchers also carried portraits of Maria KolsenikPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>>“I hope you’re recording this, so you get it down,” Bob Woodward says, nary a hint of irony in his voice.

Indeed, relying solely on notes for a conversation with the celebrated Washington Post reporter and editor would border on journalistic malpractice, considering the starring role audio tapes have played in Woodward’s 49-year career.

At the beginning, of course, was Watergate, the definitive presidential scandal he exposed with colleague Carl Bernstein, culminating in 1974 with what Richard Nixon’s surreptitious microphones caught him saying in the Oval Office.

Some 46 years later, the sound of a president’s voice on tape is again making headlines, thanks to Woodward. This time, it’s Donald Trump, admitting in an interview his intentional efforts to “play down” the clear and present danger of COVID-19.

What was coming to the United States, what was here, was a pandemic very much like the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic. That’s the key moment,” Woodward, 77, said over the phone about the Jan. 28 briefing where Trump learned the gravity of the threat.

Ten days later, Woodward would learn the truth. The rest of the country found out the hard way.

>>“(Trump) failed to tell the American people the truth,” he said. “He failed to carry out his responsibility as president to take care of and protect the American people.”

That charge of nonfeasance is just one of several explosive revelations driving Woodward’s latest book, “Rage,” a sequel of sorts to “Fear,” a 2018 account of Trump’s first term that featured no direct interviews with the president.

For Rage, there were 19 of them ? only one wasn’t recorded; Trump called out of the blue, a reporter’s nightmare ? that give the book a remarkable WatergPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Syrian opposition sources said Russian jets bombed rebel-held northwestern Syria on Sunday in the most extensive strikes since a Turkish-Russian deal halted major fighting with a ceasefire nearly six months ago.

Witnesses said the warplanes struck the western outskirts of Idlib city and that there was heavy artillery shelling in the mountainous Jabal al Zawya region in southern Idlib from nearby Syrian army outposts. There were no immediate reports of casualties.

>>“These 30 raids are by far the heaviest strikes so far since the ceasefire deal,” said Mohammed Rasheed, a former rebel official and a volunteer plane spotter whose network covers the Russian air base in the western coastal province of Latakia.

Other tracking centers said Russian Sukhoi jets hit the Horsh area and Arab Said town, west of the city of Idlib. Unidentified drones also hit two rebel-held towns in the Sahel al-Ghab plain, west of Hama province.

There has been no wide-scale aerial bombing since a March agreement ended a Russian-backed bombing campaign that displaced over a million people in the region which borders Turkey after months of fighting.

There was no immediate comment from Moscow or the Syrian army who have long accused militant groups who hold sway in the last opposition redoubt of wrecking the ceasefire deal and attacking army-held areas.

The deal between Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin also defused a military confrontation between them after Ankara poured thousands of troops into Idlib province to hold back Russian-backed forces from new advances.

Western diplomats tracking Syria say Moscow piled pressure on Ankara in the latest round of talks on Wednesday to scale down its extensive military presence in Idlib. Turkey has more than ten thousand troops statiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

A white Nebraska bar owner indicted five days ago in the May killing of a Black man during protests in Omaha killed himself in Hillsboro on Sunday, authorities say.

Jake Gardner, 38, was found outside a medical clinic in the 300 block of Southeast Ninth Avenue around 12:20 p.m., according to Sgt. Eric Bunday, a Hillsboro police spokesperson. He declined to release any more information about the death Sunday, citing an ongoing investigation.

Attorneys representing Gardner held a news conference in Omaha on Sunday saying he killed himself. They maintained Gardner shot 22-year-old James Scurlock on May 30 in “a clear case of self defense” and that he fled Nebraska sometime before the indictment because he feared for his safety.

Gardner was indicted by a grand jury in Omaha on Tuesday on charges of manslaughter, attempted assault, making terroristic threats and using a weapon while committing a felony in the shooting of Scurlock. Gardner planned to return to Nebraska on Sunday evening and turn himself in to authorities, said attorney Stu Dornan.

The district attorney in Douglas County, where Omaha is located, initially declined to file charges against Gardner, saying evidence showed the killing was in self defense. A special prosecutor in the case said surveillance video, messages from Scurlock’s phone and Facebook account and other evidence showed otherwise and that the grand jury had access to more information in the killing than the district attorney did months earlier.

Scurlock’s killing and the initial decision not to charge Gardner became a focal point of several racial justice rallies in Omaha during the summer.

Nebraska authorities said Gardner shot Scurlock outside his downtown Omaha bar during protests for law enforcement and social justice reforms in the wake of the Minneapolis police killing Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Industries that serve people in person are at risk of being left for dead as the pandemic grinds on into the fall.

The situation facing restaurants, bars, gyms, movie theaters, and other such businesses is far more dire than that of the economy as a whole.

Overall unemployment is at 8.4% and trending down — very bad, but not the apocalypse once feared. And some sectors and industries, such as housing and grocery stores, are holding up well or performing during the pandemic.

But places where people gather for fun and recreation are in big trouble. They will be the first to lose business or to be shut down by authorities amid virus outbreaks because time and money spent at those places are thought of as discretionary.

The hospitality and entertainment sectors face the prospect of the pandemic and government restrictions stretching into the fall and winter, depriving them even of the possibility of moving business outdoors.

“Spending on services that typically require people to gather closely, including travel and hospitality, is still quite weak,” Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell noted Wednesday.

At the same time, it’s been months since Congress extended aid.

>“Spending on services that typically require people to gather closely, including travel and hospitality, is still quite weak,”

but also

>Since the 1970s the American economy has moved away from producing goods to providing services, and the service-producing sector has accounted for an increasing proportion of workers. In 1970, for example, there were 48.8 million service-providing workers, and 22.2 million people in the goods-producing sector, representing a service-to-goods ratio of 2.2 to one. (See Table 2.2.) By 2000, the number of workers in the service-providing sector was 107.1 million, compared with 24.6 million in the goods-producing sector, representing a service-to-goods ratio of 4.4 to one. In 2005, according to preliminary statistics compiled by the Bureau of Labor Statistics and published in Establishment Data Historical Employment (2005), workers who provided services (111.5 million) outnumbered workers who produced goods (22.1 million) by a ratio of five to one.

Government airstrikes in northern Afghanistan killed 24 civilians, including children, and wounded six others, witnesses told The Associated Press on Sunday.

The two witnesses contacted by the AP said most of those killed in Saturday’s airstrikes, which struck the village of Sayed Ramazan in northern Kunduz province, were civilians. The Khanabad district in the province where the village is located is Taliban-controlled.

The Afghan Defence Ministry, however, said the airstrikes killed 30 Taliban fighters, but added an investigation was being made into claims that civilians were among those killed.

The airstrikes come as Taliban and government-appointed negotiators are meeting for the first time in Qatar to discuss the future of Afghanistan and an end to decades of war and conflict.

Villagers said an initial airstrike targeted a house belonging to a Taliban fighter, whose home doubled as a checkpoint for stopping and frisking people to ensure they were not connected to the government. The explosion set fire to a nearby home, trapping a family inside, said Latif Rahmani, who witnessed the airstrikes and spoke to the AP by phone.

Rahmani said farmers and villagers ran to douse the fire and rescue trapped family members inside when a second airstrike hit, killing many of them.

Rahmani, who said he was working on his house at the time of the airstrike, warned his neighbours against running toward the burning buildings for fear of a second airstrike.

>>“I yelled at people and told them not to go because maybe there would be another bombing, but they ran to help and to put out the fire,” Rahmani said.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says the United Nations will not support reimposing sanctions on Iran as the United States is demanding until he gets a green light from the Security Council.

The U.N. chief said in a letter to the council president obtained Sunday by The Associated Press that “there would appear to be uncertainty” on whether or not U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo triggered the “snapback” mechanism in the Security Council resolution that enshrined the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six major powers.

The Trump administration declared Saturday that all U.N. sanctions against Iran have been restored, a move most of the rest of the world rejects as illegal and is likely to ignore. The U.S. announcement is certain to cause controversy during the U.N.’s annual high-level meetings of the General Assembly starting Monday, which is being held mainly virtually this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The U.S. announcement came 30 days after Pompeo notified the council that the administration was triggering “snapback” because Iran was in “significant non-performance” with its obligations under the accord, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA.

But the overwhelming majority of members in the 15-nation council call the U.S. action illegal because President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the plan in 2018.

They point to Security Council Resolution 2231, which endorsed the nuclear agreement. It states that “a JCPOA participant state” can trigger the “snapback” mechanism. The U.S. insists that as an original participant it has the legal right, even though it ceased participating.

Guterres noted in the letter that “the Security Council has taken no action subsequent to the receipt of the letter of the U.S. secretary of state, neither have any of its members or itsPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

After months of harassment and racist remarks, the doctor at the centre of a COVID-19 controversy that rocked New Brunswick says his life has been changed entirely.

Dr. Jean Robert Ngola, a physician of Congolese descent, said in a recent interview the fallout from allegations he was “patient zero” responsible for an outbreak put him under an uncomfortable spotlight.

>>“Since May … everything has changed in my life,” Ngola said by phone.

And now he wants the province to investigate his case to ensure nobody else endures a similar fate.

On May 27, in the face of a growing outbreak in Campbellton, N.B., Premier Blaine Higgs referred to an “irresponsible” health-care worker and said the matter was being handled by the RCMP. The outbreak eventually affected 40 people and resulted in two deaths.

News got out that Ngola, a family doctor working in the northern New Brunswick town at the time, was the suspect in the RCMP’s investigation after his positive COVID-19 status was leaked on social media.

Ngola says a deluge of harassment and racist taunts followed, both online and in person, as the investigation unfolded into an overnight trip he took to Quebec.

Before he tested positive, Ngola had driven to Montreal to pick up his daughter, because her mother was travelling to Africa to attend a funeral.

On his way back to New Brunswick, he met with two colleagues in the Trois-Rivieres, Que., area before completing his trip, according to his lawyer, Joel Etienne. He did not self-isolate for two weeks when he returned, as provincial health guidelines direct, but Ngola has said that was consistent with the practice of other physicians at his hospital.

The United States on Monday will sanction more than two dozen people and entities involved in Iran’s nuclear, missile and conventional arms programs, a senior U.S. official said, putting teeth behind U.N. sanctions on Tehran that Washington argues have resumed despite the opposition of allies and adversaries.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official said Iran could have enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon by the end of the year and that Tehran has resumed long-range missile cooperation with nuclear-armed North Korea. He did not provide detailed evidence regarding either assertion.

The new sanctions fit into U.S. President Donald Trump’s effort to limit Iran’s regional influence and come a week after U.S.-brokered deals for the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to normalize ties with Israel, pacts that may coalesce a wider coalition against Iran while appealing to pro-Israel U.S. voters ahead of the Nov. 3 election.

The new sanctions also put European allies, China and Russia on notice that while their inclination may be to ignore the U.S. drive to maintain the U.N. sanctions on Iran, companies based in their nations would feel the bite for violating them.

A major part of the new U.S. push is an executive order targeting those who buy or sell Iran conventional arms that was previously reported by Reuters and will also be unveiled by the Trump administration on Monday, the official said.

The Trump administration suspects Iran of seeking nuclear weapons — something Tehran denies — and Monday’s punitive steps are the latest in a series seeking to stymie Iran’s atomic program, which U.S. ally Israel views as an existential threat.

Former President Barack Obama inserted himself Friday night in the political fight over former Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s replacement.

After celebrating Ginsburg’s legacy, the former president reasserted in a statement that Ginsburg requested that President Donald Trump not be the one to name her replacement.

“[S]he also left instructions for how she wanted her legacy to be honored,” Obama wrote.

According to her granddaughter, Clara Spera, Ginsburg dictated to her that her “most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.”

Obama recalled that Merrick Garland, his own choice to replace Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia after he died in 2016, was denied a confirmation vote by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on the notion that a president should not have a Supreme Court appointment in an election year.

Obama complained that Republicans “invented the principle that the Senate shouldn’t fill an open seat on the Supreme Court before a new president was sworn in.”

The former president argued that Republicans should be consistent about their approach, “not based on what’s convenient or advantageous in the moment.”

“The rule of law, the legitimacy of our courts, the fundamental workings of our democracy all depend on that basic principle,” he said.

But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell argued Friday night that the precedent set by the Senate in 2016 was that voters elected a Republican majority in 2014 to check Obama’s power in his second term, denying him a third Supreme Court nomination.

> Barack Obama Suggests Delay of Ruth Bader Ginsburg Replacement Until After Election

He's not the only gibbering liberal who wants that, but if Trump delays appointing one and doesn't win re-election, we're going to be stuck with yet another degenerate until he or she eventually dies at 194. I wonder how many white teenagers' blood was stolen just to keep her living as long as she did?

If she wanted control over who picked her replacement she should have retired when Obama was president and Dems had both houses.
