Homicide in Seattle autonomous zone being investigated; Statues of a Spanish missionary toppled in California

Police are investigating a homicide inside the Seattle autonomous zone. The shooting Saturday morning left one person dead and another hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.

Elsewhere, a mural of George Floyd in Salt Lake City was vandalized as San Francisco considers the future of statues and park art after protesters tore down statues.

On Saturday, President Donald Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma hosted a smaller-than-usual crowd, with empty seats in the 19,000-capacity BOK Center.

Trump’s campaign canceled planned outdoor speeches before his rally. Campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh said the cancelation was because of protests outside. But journalists on the ground refuted seeing large numbers of individuals turned away due to protesters.

A closer look at some recent developments:

  • Seattle Police are investigating a homicide that happened early Saturday in which one person was killed and another in critical condition in Seattle’s “Capitol Hill Occupied Protest,” or (CHOP) zone.

NYC Retailers Opening Their Doors to Shoppers in ‘Phase Two’

Click here to read the full article.

It’s fingers-crossed for New York City retailers entering “phase two” of restarting the local economy.

From Macy’s to Giorgio Armani and Vince, thousands of “nonessential” stores in the city reopen for shopping on Monday, hoping that their eagerness to get back in business is met by consumers eager to shop.

It won’t be Black Friday all over again, though some NYC retailers are expecting good turnouts based on a few factors. An estimated 300,000 office, retail and restaurant workers are returning to work Monday, the onset of New York’s phase two. Stores around the country, temporarily closed in mid-March due to the coronavirus, have been reopening in recent weeks and seeing better-than-expected traffic trends. And store executives sense some pent-up demand for their products, emphasizing that shopping provides an escape from sheltering in from the pandemic.

Trump had initially planned a campaign rally in Tulsa on Friday but later rescheduled to Saturday after learning about the significance of Juneteenth. The city is also where a white mob destroyed the “Black Wall Street” in 1921.

What’s the Difference and What Do They Do?

Dietician and nutritionist are often used interchangeably to refer to someone who works in the healthcare industry, specifically with regards to diet, food and eating habits. Though both are considered nutritional experts, these two professions have distinct qualifications that set them apart including education, certification and clinical experience. A registered dietician (RD) is federally regulated and requires specific and ongoing proof of credentials. A nutritionist, on the other hand, is much less standardized, meaning accreditation can vary from state to state and even region to region.

To help us learn more, we reached out to Brian St. Pierre MS, RD, CSCS and director of nutrition at Precision Nutrition, a digital coaching and certification platform.

What Is a Dietician?

Simply put, a dietician is an expert on diet and its effects on our health and wellbeing. Dieticians are licensed to assess, diagnose and treat nutritional problems, including chronic diseases like diabetes

I’m The Father Of A Newborn Baby Girl But I Won’t Be A ‘GirlDad.’ Here’s Why.

When you first meet your kid you feel love for her, but she’s mostly a screaming, helpless puddle of pudge. You love her but, also, you don’t know her. She hasn’t fully formed or come into being yet. How do you love a thing you do not know?

After a few months or so that little pudgeball starts to smile ― really smile ― at you, starts to chortle when you peekaboo in a funny voice, starts to turn and look and twinkle when you call her name. It’s the strangest and nicest feeling to have your heart swell with love as this happens and this tiny little human starts her journey of becoming.

With the birth of my daughter Molly, some might say I became a ”GirlDad.”  

That term was created in recognition of Los Angeles

Providence High baseball player didn’t finish senior season but wins player of year

Providence High baseball player Sam Fligel is the 2020 Charlotte Observer spring sports athlete of the year.

This year, the newspaper didn’t name all-star teams in individual sports like baseball, softball and track. The coronavirus pandemic ended spring seasons just after they got started.

Instead, we asked schools to nominate players who were stars in the classroom and stars in their communities. Some of the stories from the boys and girls candidates we got back were inspiring.

We named a boys spring sports team, which you will see below, and asked readers to vote for the winner.

Fligel won with a little more than 50 percent of the vote, topping Union Academy’s Jaden Sylvestre and Charlotte Country Day’s Foster and William Harris.

Fligel was Providence’s fourth catcher as a freshman. In his sophomore year, he split time on the junior varsity. By his junior year, a commitment to the weight

Yoga is not supposed to be about how you look. In fact, the purpose of this 5,000-year-old Indian practice is the very opposite: to combat the superficial with the spiritual and encourage mental transformation through movement.

But in recent years, it seems these intentions have fallen to the wayside.

Thanks to the advent of Instagram, millions of avid yogis around the world have taken to sharing daring and abstract poses online, accruing thousands of followers and launching careers as “yoga influencers” as a result. Search #yoga on the platform and you’ll find 75.5 million photos of people bending their limbs backwards, forwards and sideways in all sorts of Valencia-filtered locations. And celebrities are among them, with everyone from Britney Spears and Miranda Kerr to Miley Cyrus and Beyoncé demonstrating their finest yoga moves.

Some of the poses are harmless – a downward dog here, a lotus there –

A new Cuomo emerged amid a global pandemic, experts wonder if he can maintain his mojo

ALBANY — For three months, as a deadly virus gripped New York in its vice, Gov. Cuomo calmed a nervous and uneasy public during daily televised briefings that revealed a seldom-seen side of the governor.

For millions of Americans, a daily dose of Cuomo was just what the doctor ordered as the coronavirus ravaged the state and the death toll climbed. Concise, candid and full of PowerPoint slides, the gov’s data-driven press conferences offered a sense of stability amid the uncertainty.

The briefings quickly became must-see TV, 59 million online views alone, not to mention cable and network broadcasts, helping to send the third-term governor’s job approval and popularity rating soaring.

The daily on-camera appearances spawned satirical social media impersonations, Etsy shops stocked with Cuomo-themed goods and fawning from self-proclaimed “cuomosexuals.”

Longtime political observers, who described the governor as a calculating and meticulous manager obsessed with details and the machinations
