Opinion | The most anti-refugee president in modern history might not be Donald Trump - The Washington Post Halfway through fiscal 2021, the United States has admitted only 2,050 refugees, State Department data show. At the current pace, about 4,100 people would be resettled here this year. That would be the lowest number since the modern refugee resettlement program began in 1980; the previous record low came last year, under Trump alone, at 11,814. Amazingly, monthly admissions have slowed since Biden took office. To put these numbers in context: Over the previous four decades, refugee admissions averaged about 78,000 annually, or roughly 19 times the total were on track for this year.

Finding From Particle Research Could Rewrite Known Laws of Physics - The New York Times not the next Higgs bosonyet.

The result, physicists say, suggests that there are forms of matter and energy vital to the nature and evolution of the cosmos that are not yet known to science ... But the muons did not behave quite as predicted by the Standard Model, the suite of equations that enumerates the fundamental particles in the universe (17, at last count) and how they interact ...

At Biden's first news conference, it wasnt the president who was out of touch
Eschaton: So Predictable Reporters spent a month complaining about Biden not having a press conference. It's reasonable that Biden has them sometimes, but they aren't really important, largely because the press corps behaved as every critic expected they would ... in the case of the border, Biden now has to fact-check the media, after four years of the opposite ... It was a shit press conference and the reporters are why
Reporters hype -- then waste -- Bidens first press conference

Eschaton: We'll Pull Laughter From The Skies A major problem is that most of the people in elite perches in The Discourse are barely affected by policy, and in fact consider their lack of personal stake in the outcome to be a point in their favor, as lack of a personal stake in the outcome gives them the purity of intellect that only such detachment can provide. Objective observers from the mountaintop. Critics reviewing the show. I shouldn't be surprised anymore, but even after All This...
Eschaton: It's All Around Us Trying to to push Biden into participating Trump/Biden WWE match, and then when he didn't bite, pretending he did anyway. Pretending to believe the bullshit Republicans pretend to be concerned about, despite knowing they didn't care about those things a month ago. The treatment of any policy dispute as mere partisan bickering, rather than something with severe consequences. Tiptoeing, at best, around the contempt for democracy Republicans are displaying in statehouses all around the country, even after there was organized massive attempt to assassinate the (former) Vice President and numerous members of Congress just 2.5 months ago in order to end the democratic experiment in this country. The light goes on for about 24 hours, then they are back on their bullshit.
