House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., removed her mask to take a photo with the newest congressman from Texas in what appeared to be a violation of Capitol Police’s mask guidance. Pelosi ditched her mask briefly while taking a photo with the newly minted Rep. Jake Ellzey, R-Texas, the day after Capitol Police were directed to arrest staffers and visitors who refused to wear masks on the House side of the Capitol. [cut] Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., told "America’s Newsroom" on Thursday that he’d rather take the fine than abide by Pelosi’s mask mandate. "Hell no, I’m not backing down," Massie,...

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Dan O'Conor, better known as the "Great Lake Jumper" decided to bring his talents to Lake Erie, jumping into the water to raise mental health awareness and bring money to concert venues struggling because of the pandemic.
"I want those venues to come back because that's how bands become great and then can play in a stadiums," O'Conor said.
O'Conor is from the Chicago area. During the pandemic, he says he was in a mental funk and decided that a dip in Lake Michigan would help restart his brain. It worked, so he has done it every day since, now inviting local musicians to perform while he jumps into the sometimes freezing cold waters.

Funky Taurus Media - Music Photo Agency & Products - Funky Taurus & George Clinton - The Brooklyn UFO

Rezension der “Funky Taurus & George Clinton” CD UFO Le F.U.N.K von Governor G ( 50 cent )
My name is Governor AKA Gio. I have written and performed songs with 50 Cent, T.I., Wyclef Jean and more! My relationship with 50 Cent goes way back. Currently I am in the process of creating my own brand of music, a soulful sound with a modern twist, it’s music that you can not only HEAR but music you can FEEL! I’m creating music and lyrics that will make the hairs on your arm stand up or give you chills, which is why I respect what FUNKY TAURUS is doing. Her brand of music is an interesting hybrid of characteristics from the past with an interesting peak into the future of music. Her song “Brooklyn UFO” sounds just as it is so cleverly named. This song is will surely allow you to keep your ‘radio blasting’….the UFO like sounds that surround your ears while her soft toned voice peers thru is like a “trippy” ride thru another demension in time, both future and past! It’s hynotic, it’s sexy and at the same time “bumping your speakers.” This song lulls you into a transe so to speak. Funky Taurus definitely knows how to set the mood on this tune! George Clinton is an ICON in our world of music and that fact that he chose to team up with Funky Taurus and lend his experience and creativity is a testiment and extreme compliment to her musical ear and talent! F_U_N_K_Y, Funky Taurus is surely in the house! This type of effort to break the stereotypical lines of music we hear brings on a fresh approach to the future of music. The fact that the musical productions and collaborations of Funky Taurus and George Clinton are actually made by two people that know the theory of music and are not just two “beatmakers” is even more refreshing. I respect the sampling art of music but there’s nothing like listening to music created by producers that actually know what the note “A” or “B/flat” is. I think through our fastly expanding culture of the digital era, it has almost disabled people in knowing the theory of music. Anyone can tap out a beat to a tempo and quantize it to stay consistent but bringing out emotion, creating mood swings and creating dynamics within the music is the mark of a true PRODUCTION! Funk is not DEAD! In a business world that thrives on a quick dollar and trends that die out from summer to summer, FUNKY TAURUS has created a sound that is TIMELESS and pure!

More Chicago Police Seek Mental Health Support Under New Stresses

More Chicago Police Seek Mental Health Support Under New Stresses
CHICAGO—Carrie Steiner’s mental health clinic in Lombard, a suburban town just west of Chicago, has seen a surge of police officers from Chicago Police Department and surrounding suburban police agencies. She added five new therapists in the last 18 months, each seeing 25 to 30 clients every week.
A new source of stress for Chicago police is the prolonged working hours, Steiner said. Since last summer, they have been repeatedly asked to work 12-hour shifts with no days off to cope with the civil unrest and rising crime. Many officers she knows sleep four to five hours a day—that is, if they get to fall asleep at all.

Violent Femmes 'Why Do Birds Sing' Gets A 30th Anniversary Make-Over

Violent Femmes ‘Why Do Birds Sing’ Gets A 30th Anniversary Make-Over
Violent Femmes fifth album ‘Why Do Birds Sing’ has been expanded with a chunk of previously unreleased material to mark the 30th anniversary of its release.
‘Why Do Birds Sing’ was produced by Michael Beinhorn, who came to Violent Femmes after working with Red Hot Chili Peppers on ‘Mother’s Milk’ and ‘The Uplift Mojo Plan’. “Beinhorn was the most eccentric producer we met with,” Brian Ritchie recalls. “More importantly, he understood our strengths as a trio, and the intimacy of the sound, and our improvisational nature, and wanted to focus on Gordon’s lyrics.”

Illinois Police Chiefs Association at Odds With Facebook Over Post

Updated 3 hours ago
NBC Universal, Inc.
The Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police wants more people to know about the person it just named officer of the year, but it is running into an issue with a social media giant.
The association wrote a Facebook post detailing East Peoria Patrolman Jeffrey Bieber’s life-threatening encounter with a domestic violence suspect in February.
Beiber was stabbed multiple times after the suspect pulled out a knife. Bieber tried Tasering the suspect with no luck before he fired four shots at the suspect, fatally wounding him.
"What happened with this officer was textbook of what we want from an officer before they use deadly force, and the community should be applauding and we want the community to know we’re doing our part as professionals to do things in a proper way," said Hazel Crest Police Chief Mitchell Davis, who is currently serving as president of the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police.

The Latest: Dallas judge says masks required in courthouses
By The Associated PressJuly 31, 2021 GMT
DALLAS — An administrative court judge has ordered that anyone entering a Dallas County courthouse must be wearing a mask to be admitted.
The order Friday by Administrative District Judge Maricela Moore requires masks to be worn in the common areas of the George Allen Courthouse, which houses the county’s civil courts; the Frank Crowley Courthouse, which houses its criminal courts; and the Henry Wade Building, which houses its juvenile courts. Those refusing could be barred from entering the buildings.
The order comes after Gov. Greg Abbott repeated his order banning any mask mandates by any state, county or local government entity. However, it cites as its authority a Texas Supreme Court order “that confirms the judiciary’s authority to take reasonable actions to avoid exposing court proceedings and participants to the threat of COVID-19.”

Acting Is 'Problem Solving,' Says Courtney B. Vance


This is FRESH AIR. I'm David Bianculli, professor of television studies at Rowan University, in for Terry Gross. Courtney B. Vance has been nominated for a guest actor Emmy for his role in HBO's "Lovecraft Country," a supernatural horror series inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft. The period miniseries set in the past in the segregated Deep South was truly scary, but also managed to probe deeply into such concepts as racism, identity and self-worth. Here's a scene in which Vance, as George Freeman, finds himself invited to stay in a remote mansion along with his nephew and his nephew's girlfriend. It's a mansion that generates dreams and anxieties.

OBGYN groups recommend COVID vaccine for pregnant women

Two groups on Friday said vaccinations in thousands of pregnant women over the past several months have shown the shots are safe and effective during pregnancy.

Two leading obstetricians’ groups on Friday recommended COVID-19 shots for all pregnant women, citing concerns over rising cases and low vaccination rates.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine said vaccinations in tens of thousands of pregnant women over the past several months have shown the shots are safe and effective during pregnancy.
COVID-19 during pregnancy increases risks for severe complications and can also increase chances for preterm birth. U.S. government data show only about 16% of pregnant women have received one or more doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.
