As everyone surely already knows by now, Dr. Anthony Fauci made headlines the other day, when he called a press conference in order to say that “every member of the staff of the paper at Fordham University is the most essential worker in the entire country, and I would like to personally fly each one of them to DC and vaccinate them myself!” Badabing badaboom, and we’re vaxxed! Well, maybe it didn’t happen exactly like that
Several weeks ago, on February 1, LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers were in Atlanta to play the Hawks in primetime. But it was an interaction between LeBron and a fan sitting courtside that made the news.
Don’t put Justin Bieber in a box. Since coming into his artistic own with Purpose in 2015, Bieber has spread his artistry over the musical spectrum, with work ranging from sensitive electro-pop to obtuse, lazy R&B. His newest song, “Yummy,” falls into the latter. While reviews on the new single are somewhat mixed, the general consensus about it is that it is too dragged down by its simplicity and lyrical hollowness to be special.
Donald J. Trump has become the third president to be impeached. On December 18th, the House of Representatives voted to pass the two articles introduced, both on near-party line votes. The articles, for abuse of power and obstruction of congress, were passed on the strength of the Democratic caucus alone, with neither receiving a vote from a single Republican. An historic vote, Trump has now joined Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton as the only presidents to be impeached by the House. The charges stem from the July 25th phone call between President Trump and newly elected Ukranian President Vlodymir Zelensky, during which President Trump appeared to ask Mr. Zelensky to open an investigation into Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden, and his business dealings with large Ukranian companies. The caveat– that is, the quid pro quo of it all– is that routine military aid for Ukraine, several hundred million dollars of it, had been held up for the past few weeks before this, leading some to believe that Mr. Trump was conditioning the aid on Mr. Zelensky’s willingness to open an investigation into one of the President’s premier political rivals.
