California Governor Gavin Newsom wants to be the boss of you. But he’s not a very good boss of himself. He showed up at The French Laundry restaurant in wine country to celebrate a birthday without a mask. And he partied there with a dozen friends. But he got busted breaking his own rules. And now the governor is very sorry.

 

Don’t be like Gavin. Go here for your holiday mask needs!

Lebron won his fourth NBA title but nobody saw it. Well, not exactly nobody – in addition to the cardboard cutouts, 8.29 million breathing people watched on ABC. But that was 57.6% drop in viewership since LeBron’s last NBA Finals performance with the Cavs in 2018 .

Commissioner Adan Silver seemed to think that another area where LeBron execells, social justice messaging, had something to do with it. So next season the players will be asked to message on their own time.

Here’s the 60 foot gold standard of first pitches at game 3 of the 2001 World Series in Yankee Stadium. It turned out to be the last time the country was united.

Germs build immunity. That’s because your body remembers pathogens. And it hates them. So when your body sees a pathogen it recognizes, it gets very upset and kills it. At least that’s how Harvard professor of microbiology Michael N. Starnbach, PhD sees it.

And if you don’t believe Dr. Starnbach, just ask George Carlin.

But how’s your body going to meet new germs if it’s holed up behind a mask in your basement? Besides that, hiding out from germs could drive you crazy.

Issues and Insights reports on a study that claims there could be 75.000 or more deaths due to the Covid-19 shutdown. It blames depression and stress.
