“Defendant Shall Not Attend Protests”: In Portland, Getting Out of Jail Requires Relinquishing Constitutional Rights
A dozen protesters facing federal charges are barred from going to “public gatherings” as a condition of release from jail — a tactic one expert described as “sort of hilariously unconstitutional.” - https://www.propublica.org/article/defendant-shall-not-attend-protests-in-portland-getting-out-of-jail-requires-relinquishing-constitutional-rights
Led by Northwestern University, the research team conducted a statistical analysis of data from hospitals and clinics across China, France, Germany, Italy, Iran, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom (UK) and the United States. - https://news.northwestern.edu/stories/2020/05/vitamin-d-appears-to-play-role-in-covid-19-mortality-rates/

Trump promotes a doctor who has claimed alien DNA was used in medical treatments. The woman (doctor???) said masks don't work and there is a cure for Covid-19, both of which health experts say is not true. She's also made videos saying that doctors make medicine using DNA from aliens, and that they're trying to create a vaccine to make you immune from becoming religious - https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/29/politics/stella-immanuel-trump-doctor/index.html
Is Robbie Williams stupid?? A baseless claim about a child sex-trafficking ring, a Washington, DC pizzeria, and Hillary Clinton has been passed around among conspiracy theorists for more than three years. No evidence has emerged to support any part of the story. But last month, British pop star Robbie Williams used his voice to argue that the claims deserved more attention. https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/30/tech/qanon-europe-covid-intl/index.html

For the first time in three months, Germany has registered more than 1,000 confirmed coronavirus infections in 24 hours.
A total of 1,045 confirmed cases of Covid-19 were recorded in Germany by the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) within a day, the disease control agency said on Thursday August 6th.
The last time the number of new infections rose above 1,000 was on May 7th. The numbers steadily fell after that. However, in the past week the rate has been rising.
The peak of new infections came at the beginning of April when Germany saw more than 6,000 new cases in a day. https://www.thelocal.de/20200806/germany-sees-more-than-1000-new-coronavirus-infections-in-24-hours
America’s COVID-19 death toll is expected to reach nearly 300,000 by December 1; however, consistent mask-wearing beginning today could save about 70,000 lives, according to new data from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington’s School of Medicine - http://www.healthdata.org/news-release/new-ihme-covid-19-forecasts-see-nearly-300000-deaths-december-1
US response to the virus is met with incredulity abroad. The United States’ failure to contain the spread of the coronavirus has been met with astonishment and alarm in Europe, as the world’s most powerful country edges closer to a global record of 5 million confirmed infections.
Perhaps nowhere outside the U.S. is America’s bungled virus response viewed with more consternation than in Italy, which was ground zero of Europe’s epidemic. Italians were unprepared when the outbreak exploded in February and the country still has one of the world’s highest official death tolls at 35,000. - https://apnews.com/2a03a4e685316eb7d5a6e7181000fbfe
Beer culture — this is how Germany drinks
Only hops, barley, yeast, and water can be used to make Germany's favorite beverage, according to the Beer Purity Law. To mark International Beer Day, we'll show what else is part of German beer culture. https://www.dw.com/en/beer-culture-this-is-how-germany-drinks/g-54478368
People in China are back to buying German luxury cars. Europe’s assembly lines are accelerating. Now the global economy is waiting for the United States to get its coronavirus outbreak under control and boost the recovery, but there’s little sign of that. - https://apnews.com/07e84915d417309fd4b4593bdb2cb90f
Why did the United States’ Covid-19 containment response fail, particularly compared with the successful results of so many nations in Asia, Europe and even our neighbor Canada? - https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/07/opinion/coronavirus-lockdown-unemployment-death.html
