*CIGARETTE SMOKING MAKES COMEBACK DURING CORNOAVIRUS PANDEMIC:

Americans are smoking more during the coronavirus pandemic because they are spending less on travel and entertainment and have more opportunities to light up. They are also switching back to traditional cigarettes from vaping devices in the wake of federal restrictions on e-cigarette flavors. Executives at Marlboro maker Altria Group Inc. pointed to the trends Tuesday and said they have been significant enough to slow the yearslong decline ina U.S. cigarette sales. Altria now expects U.S. cigarette unit sales to fall by 2% to 3.5% this year compared with its previous projection of a 4%-to-6% decline.

Pandemic lockdowns have meant fewer social outings and more time to smoke at home, Altria Chief Executive Billy Gifford said. Though unemployment rates are high, stimulus checks and increased unemployment benefits have helped ease the financial hardship for low- and middle-income cigarette smokers, he added. Adult cigarette smokers are making fewer trips to the store, but they are stocking up on packs when they do go. “Fewer social engagements allow for more tobacco-use occasions,” Mr. Gifford told analysts on an earnings call Tuesday. The company’s Marlboro brand accounts for 43% of all cigarettes sold in the U.S.


*SEATTLE POLICE CHIEF SENDS SIMPLE MESSAGE TO BUSINESSES DURING RIOTS:
‘YOU’RE ON YOUR OWN’

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best told local businesses Friday that due to new city council regulations, the police force won’t intervene in the event of more riots. “Please also know that the City Council Ordinance 119805 Crowd Control Tool goes into effect this weekend on Sunday, July 26, 2020. This ordinance bans Seattle Police officers the use of less lethal tools, including pepper spray that is commonly used to disperse crowds that have turned violent,” a letter addressed to businesses and residents in the city stated. Best argued that this has resulted in her police officers having “NO ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd.” On Thursday, Best also informed the city council that she believes it has hamstrung the Seattle police and that she will have to avoid crowd control measures in the future in the interests of officer safety. Best noted that the city remains under attack. “It is a fact that there are groups and individuals who are intent on destruction in our City. Yes, we also have seen weeks of peaceful demonstrations, but two recent events (Sunday, July 19th and Wednesday, July 22nd) have included wide-scale property destruction and attacks on officers, injuring more than a dozen, some significantly,” according to the correspondence.


*” I’M OUTTA HERE”: JOE ROGAN SAYS HE’S LEAVING LA FOR TEXAS

  Prominent podcaster Joe Rogan said that he’s had enough of Los Angeles and is leaving for Texas. “I’m outta here,” Rogan said during a Friday interview with CEO of Spartan and Death Race Joe De Sena. Rogan told De Sena he is leaving L.A. for Texas “soon” because he wants to live somewhere that is “in the center of the country, somewhere it’s easier to travel to both places, and somewhere where you have a little bit more freedom.” Rogan also cited L.A.’s overcrowding, which he says proves problematic in the age of COVID-19. “When you look at the traffic, when you look at the economic despair, when you look at the homelessness problem that’s accelerated radically over the last six, seven, ten years, I think there’s too many people here,” said Rogan. “I think it’s not tenable. I don’t think it’s manageable. I think every mayor does a sh*t job of doing it, because I don’t think anybody could do a great job of it. I think there’s certain things you’re gonna have to deal with when you have a population of whatever the f**k L.A. is, it’s like 20 million plus people.”

*DOGS CAN SNIFF OUT CORONAVIRUS INFECTIONS, GERMAN STUDY SHOWS:

Dogs with a few days of training are capable of identifying people infected with the coronavirus, according to a study by a German veterinary university. Eight dogs from Germany’s armed forces were trained for only a week and were able to accurately identify the virus with a 94% success rate, according to a pilot project led by the University of Veterinary Medicine Hannover. Researchers challenged the dogs to sniff out Covid-19 in the saliva of more than 1,000 healthy and infected people.  “We think that this works because the metabolic processes in the body of a diseased patient are completely changed,” Maren von Koeckritz-Blickwede, a professor at the university, said in a YouTube video about the project.

“We think that the dogs are able to detect a specific smell.” Dogs, which have a sense of smell around 1,000 times more sensitive than humans, could be deployed to detect infections at places such as airports, border crossings and sporting events with the proper training, according to the researchers. The study was conducted jointly with the German armed forces, the Hannover Medical School and the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf. Von Koeckritz-Blickwede said that the next step will be to train dogs to differentiate Covid samples from other diseases like influenza.

*BORIS JOHNSON: ALL THESE ANTI-VAXXERS ARE ‘NUTS’

Boris Johnson laid into the anti-vaccine movement on Friday while calling on people to get the flu jab ahead of a potential second surge of the coronavirus this fall. “There’s all these anti-vaxxers now,” Johnson told a group of nurses. “They are nuts, they are nuts.” British scientists hope they made a breakthrough in the hunt for a coronavirus vaccine earlier this week, but it could still be many months before it’s available for widespread use. “We have still got the threat of a second spike on COVID, and it’s vital therefore to keep that pressure off the NHS by everybody getting a flu jab and I really hope everybody will,” Johnson said.

*EXAMINER – LENS:

A polar bear stands on an ice floe in the Arctic Ocean. The majority of polar bears will likely disappear by the end of the century if greenhouse gas emissions are not curbed, according to a new study published Monday. While scientists have long known polar bears are threatened by global heating, this latest study published in Nature Climate Change is the first to identify when and where the bears will disappear.

*EXAMINER – INVESTIGATES:

People are always going to care about the Kennedys, and as the years stretch on from that mythical time in politics we called Camelot, memories can be tested. How else to explain the widespread reaction to the release of a set of taped interviews recorded 47 years ago by Jackie Kennedy that reveal a woman who sounds more like one of the Real Housewives of (pick your city) than the Jackie we knew or thought we knew? Our Jackie is embodied forever in that bloodstained pink suit. She bore the grief of a nation with such dignity, and then guarded her privacy until she died in 1994 at age 64. This Jackie is harshly judgmental, dispensing petty opinions that say as much about her as they do the objects of her disdain. She calls Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “a phony” who the FBI had discovered was arranging trysts with women even as he proclaimed himself a man of the cloth. She describes Lady Bird Johnson as so deferential to her husband “she was sort of like a trained hunting dog,” and she denigrates her brother-in-law, Edward M. Kennedy, for being the best politician in the family. “Jack never—he never said, ‘Hi fella,’ or put his fat palm under your armpit, or, you know, any of that sort of business. It was embarrassing to him.”

NOT JUST U.S – COVID-19 AROUND THE WORLD

It’s not just the U.S. struggling to stamp out the coronavirus. Nearly 40 countries reported record single-day bumps in cases over the past week, per Reuters. Here’s the latest.

Spain: As new hotspots crop up, the government instituted new restrictions on nightlife in Barcelona and neighboring areas. The UK also made the surprise move of putting Spain on its “unsafe” travel list, meaning that travelers coming back from Spain must self-quarantine for 14 days. 

North Korea: A city near the border with South Korea has been placed under lockdown after someone was found with coronavirus symptoms. It would be North Korea’s first confirmed case, but few experts actually believe that. 

Germany and Taiwan: Both countries sent cruise ships sailing for the first time since the lockdowns began. Germany’s ship had 1,200 passengers compared to the typical 2,900.

*MADNESS IN THE STREETS!- RIOTS ACROSS PORTLAND LEAD TO FIRE BEING SET INSIDE POLICE UNION BUILDING:

Riots in Portland continued Saturday evening, with one leading to a fire being set inside a police union building and another continuing to target the federal courthouse. Portland has seen over 50 days of protests and rioting, and Saturday proved to be no different. Daily Caller reporters were at the scene where rioters squared off with officers after tearing down fencing and using it to barricade the federal courthouse. Meanwhile, another riot in the city led to the bureau’s union headquarters being broken into and briefly lit on fire, according to police. Outside of the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse, hundreds gathered and immediately began removing fencing surrounding the park and courthouse that had been erected by officers. Some rioters barricaded the building and began to taunt officers by banging on the walls and yelling for them to come outside. Small fights broke out between those who wanted to continue tearing down fencing and a small group trying to prevent further destruction.  

*DISGRACED ATTORNEY, MICHAEL AVENATTI, IS BROKE & CAN’T AFFORD LEGAL FEES:

Michael Avenatti is broke and can’t pay his legal fees, the California attorney who has represented the discredited lawyer for more than a year claims. Dean Steward filed a motion in federal court Saturday detailing Avenatti’s financial woes and is now asking for taxpayer help to cover his costs.  “The bottom line is that Mr. Avenatti has run out of funds, and faces a complex trial lasting as long as six weeks,” Steward wrote in a filing to the federal judge overseeing one of Avenatti’s three ongoing criminal cases. This isn’t the first time Avenatti has run into legal or money issues in the case. For a short period last year, Avenatti was represented by lawyers in the federal public defender’s office after his retained counsel departed. It was then that Steward — whom Avenatti called “incredibly well-qualified” — entered the case.

“[B]ut the retainer has long since run out and defendant does not have funds to pay counsel,” Steward says. He’s proposing to stay on as Avenatti’s lawyer and get paid under terms of existing rules for indigent clients. “Such an arrangement would save considerable taxpayer funds, over starting fresh with new … counsel.” A detailing of Avenatti’s financial straits was also filed with the court — but under seal from public view and for now from prosecutors as well. It wasn’t immediately clear when Judge James Selna in Los Angeles would rule on the matter.


*HUNGER GAMES – MAN ACCUSED OF PUNCHING NYPD CHIEF, COPS ON BROOKLYN BRIDGE, RELEASED WITHOUT BAIL:

A violent attack on several members of the NYPD, including police chief Terence Monahan, left one officer with broken bones in his face. In less than a day, police identified and arrested two men suspected of assaulting the officer and the chief. The man who is charged with hitting the chief was released without bail. “Quran Campbell, 25, is accused of socking the highest-ranking uniformed cop several times in the face as Monahan tried to arrest him after Campbell had allegedly punched another NYPD officer and lieutenant near the Manhattan approach to the bridge. Campbell was arraigned on assault charges in Manhattan criminal court and was granted supervised release.” — NYPost.com. Ever since Mayor De Blasio’s removal of bail for most arrests, crime has been on the rise in NYC. And since the riots and protests following the George Floyd killing, crime — especially violent crime — has greatly increased. Allowing criminals who are willing to attack police to be back on the street is likely to embolden other, similarly-minded individuals.

*PEOPLE WHO LIKE EMBARRASSING OR ANGERING OTHERS FIND SOCIAL MEDIA MORE ADDICTIVE:

Large swaths of the internet are a cesspool. Before today, this led to glum assessments about the state of humanity. But a new study out of Michigan State University and California State University at Fullerton, says not so fast: The heaviest users of social media have personalities that enjoy angering and embarrassing others. This is good news! It means that humanity, on the whole, might suck far less than people on the internet. A fascinating study of 472 university students tracked their usage on two top platforms for 18-to-24-year old: Snapchat (2.64 hours per day) and Facebook (2.28 hours per day).

Researchers found that users displaying addictive behavior were also more likely to be motivated to be cruel and callous and to use others for personal gain. “Our results demonstrate that individuals who have a greater preference for these types of rewards display greater problematic use of both platforms,” write the researchers, who note that these traits are also associated with narcissism and psychopathy and have previously been correlated with addictive internet use. They write that social media sites unwittingly “cater to people who seek rewards from being cruel, such as through cyberbullying or various aggressive online behaviors.” The researchers hope that their study will help clinicians treat addicted patients by better understanding the social rewards that may be driving them. The same study also found users logging longer hours with more addictive behaviors on Snapchat, but more frequently attempting to quit Facebook.

* ‘WISHING ME DEATH’: SYRACUSE STUDENT DISHES ON THREATS, DISCRIMINATION OVER HER CONSERVATIVE VIEWS:

Adrianna San Marco, a Syracuse University student in New York opened up about the bias and threats she says she experiences on campus for her conservative views. “I’ve gotten it mostly on Twitter and Instagram with people threatening to assault me, beat me up, I had someone say they hope I get shot in the head, other people wishing me death, wishing that I burn in Hell,” said San Marco. “Most of these are coming from Syracuse University students.” She said that she has reported the death threats to police and had sent a letter to administrators in June to bring attention to what has been happening to her and other conservative students on campus, as she says this isn’t an isolated incident. San Marco says officials never responded to her letter, which is why she won’t return in the fall.

*EXAMINER – WHAT’S UP by Sarah Garcia:


*** NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio is publicly blaming the police unions for the hatred and violence taking place in New York City. He’s not blaming the release of prisoners, unequal enforcement of laws and rights (by his order), or the allowance and encouragement of riots. He’s not blaming the people who are violently attacking random people on the street or even police officers. No. He blames the police that he’s handicapped, consistently, from the beginning of the riots. Amidst videos of police getting brutally attacked, he’s consistently attacked the police. “The Sergeants Benevolent Association has only practiced division. They foment hatred. … They do not try to help us move forward,” de Blasio said during a press conference Thursday. “They don’t try to create anything good. I have no respect for the leadership of the SBA.

⚡EXAMINER FLASH⚡


It appears that the networks are beginning to think that their, er, outspoken reality stars are more of liability than an asset. A a number of networks had hired a PI to probe their own talent’s social-media feeds for signs of racism, we’re now told that networks are offering stars “good-behavior bonuses” in their contracts. Since reality TV seems to rely almost entirely on bad behavior for its entertainment value, we asked our source why networks would want to cultivate a bunch of goody-two-shoes. “They’re talking about ‘behaving well,’ as in not using racial slurs on social media and not getting into fights with castmates. It’s not a high bar.”

*WOKE ALERT!-WASHINGTON POST EDITOR SAYS TEXAS RANGERS’ ‘VIOLENT & RACIST’ NAME ‘MUST GO’:

A Washington Post editor said Monday that the Texas Rangers team name “must go.” On the same day that the National Football League’s Washington Redskins announced it would do away with its 93-year-old team name, Global Opinions editor Karen Attiah said that the Major League Baseball team must deal with “the violent and racist implications of its name.” “To know the full history of the Texas Rangers is to understand that the team’s name is not so far off from being called the Texas Klansmen,” Attiah wrote in an op-ed for the liberal newspaper. Attiah, who grew up in Dallas, reminisced about going to Rangers games with her father as a child, but said at the time she didn’t know the Rangers “were a cruel, racist force when it came to the nonwhites who inhabited the beautiful and untamed Texas territory.” The Texas Rangers were unofficially created by Stephen F. Austin in 1823 as a statewide investigative law enforcement agency, headquartered in the capital of Austin. The Rangers stopped the assassination of President William Howard Taft and pursued such outlaws as Bonnie and Clyde. More than 120 have died in the line of duty.

*FUN CITY – NEW YORK CITY’S ARROGANT RATS KEEP ATTACKING DINERS WHO’VE BEEN FORCED OUTSIDE BY PANDEMIC:

New Yorkers are rapidly discovering why European-style outdoor dining isn’t really a thing there. According to a report from NBC New York, diners who have been forced outside by pandemic restrictions keep getting attacked by the city’s greedy rats. Giacomo Romano, who owns an Italian restaurant in SoHo, told the network: “We have this big restriction of only outdoor seating… Last night, a customer had a baby rat running on his shoe and I let you just imagine his reaction.” Romano said he’s written to city leaders begging them to do something about the rodents if his customers are going to be eating outside for the foreseeable future. “If they know every month they need an extermination—do it,” said the restaurateur. NBC New York asked the city if it plans to do anything to tackle the rats, but reports that it has, so far, heard nothing back.

*SLEEPY AMERICA: 60% OF ADULTS SAY THEY’RE MORE TIRED THAN EVER BEFORE:

The coronavirus pandemic has many Americans saying they’re more tired than they’ve ever been before. According to a new survey, six in 10 Americans say their sleep routine during quarantine has them feeling more exhausted than they’ve ever felt in their life! The poll of 2,000 adults, commissioned by Leesa Sleep, finds nearly 70 percent agree their sleeping habits have become quite inconsistent. Another 63 percent think their sleep schedules might be permanently ruined by the pandemic. Working remotely has its benefits, like sleeping in later, but it may be creating some bad habits too. Forty-four percent say they stay up later since they don’t have to commute to work. Nearly half of respondents admit they get out of bed only 10 minutes before their remote workday starts. It’s no wonder so many people are tired. Many are staying up late to binge watch their favorite TV shows. Researchers report 67 percent of Americans are staying up until the early hours of the morning to sneak in a few more episodes each night. The poll also finds Americans are also to getting an average of two naps per week during their workdays.

The majority of parents in the poll say it’s difficult to maintain their child’s sleep schedule. Only 35 percent report having an easier time putting their kids to bed during quarantine. Kids may be just as tired as their parents, it seems. Around half of American couples report they’re sleeping in separate rooms more frequently than usual, but a third of respondents add they’re having more sex during the lockdown. “Sleep is as important to your overall health and wellness as diet, exercise and managing stress. Many Americans struggle to get a good night’s sleep, and a good mattress is essential,” says Leesa CMO Jim Geikie in a statement.

*JESUS H. CASH! – THE CATHOLIC CHURCH RAKED IN $1.4 BILLION IN CORONAVIRUS LOANS:

The Catholic Church raked in at least $1.4 billion in taxpayer-backed loans meant to help small businesses survive the coronavirus pandemic, a new report says. Catholic dioceses, parishes, schools and other entities made extensive use of a loophole in the feds’ Paycheck Protection Program to snag at least 3,500 forgivable loans as the pandemic scuttled worship services across the country, an Associated Press review found. Some $200 million went to roughly 40 dioceses that have paid out hundreds of millions of dollars to victims of sexual abuse in recent years — including the Archdiocese of New York, which got at least $28 million for its executive offices while its iconic St. Patrick’s Cathedral received at least $1 million, according to the Friday report.

The so-called PPP loans were generally limited to businesses and nonprofits with fewer than 500 employees. But Catholic officials helped lobby the Trump administration to exempt religious groups from that rule, which would have disqualified many dioceses, the AP reported. Data released this week indicate Catholic institutions may have bagged as much as $3.5 billion in forgivable loans that helped them retain at least 407,900 jobs — placing the church among the program’s largest beneficiaries, the news service found.

*SCIENTIST HAVE  CALCULATED HOW MANY HOT DOGS A PERSON CAN EAT AT ONCE:

Over the Fourth of July weekend, with streams of sweat pouring down his face, Joey Chestnut broke his own world record for hot dog eating, by downing 75 hot dogs (with buns) in 10 minutes at the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. It was his 13th win at the annual contest. And Miki Sudo set a women’s record, 48.5 hot dogs, to grab her seventh straight Nathan’s win. Because of the coronavirus crisis, the event was held virtually this year, and Dr. James Smoliga was glued to his screen, rooting for new records.

For the past few months, Dr. Smoliga, a veterinarian and exercise scientist, had been working on a mathematical analysis of the maximum number of hot dogs that a human could theoretically consume in 10 minutes. “The answer is 83,” said Dr. Smoliga, a professor at High Point University in North Carolina. He has now published the full analysis, which calculated this number based on 39 years of historical data from the Nathan’s contest, as well as on mathematical models of human performance that consider the potential for extreme athletic feats.

WELCOME TO EXPERT CLICK!

Mitchell P. Davis, member of the Circumnavigator’s Club — Shanghai
Mitchell P. Davis, editor from ExpertClick, is known as the matchmaker between people who want to be interviewed and the media members who need to talk to someone knowledgeable about today’s issues. This symbiotic relationship came into existence when Davis started the Yearbook of Experts, Authorities, and Spokespersons in 1984. The New York Times called it: “Dial-an-Expert” Since then, the hundreds of thousands of news releases issued via his Broadcast Interview Source and News Release Wire have garnered interviews in international, national, and local print and electronic outlets.
Due to his longevity in the business and his strategic location in Washington, DC, Davis has access to the journalists who want to talk to the people who can answer important questions. Journalists and experts know that Davis is highly selective in who’s included in his directory so both parties know the other has “skin in the game” Neither has time to waste trying to determine the validity of each other’s credentials.

Paul Dickson has been a member since 1996 and when he published his book, Hidden Language of Baseball—How Signs and Sign-Stealing Have Influenced the Course of Our National Pastime, he issued a release through Davis’s ExpertClick.com site and he was interviewed on Business Week, AP, Fox News, and Bloomberg Radio.

Shortly after completing Georgetown University business school in 1982, Davis was hired by a company that was destined to cease business. They guaranteed interviews which attracted clients who otherwise would never warrant an interview and the talk radio market was just too new. In the meantime, Davis has never guaranteed an interview and the talking head business has grown exponentially, with great thanks to Mitch Davis.
