There's a Huge Hole in Biden's Coronavirus Plan
Drew Angerer/GettyIn mid-March, former Vice President Joe Biden released a massive plan to combat the coronavirus pandemic and prepare the nation for future threats to public health and safety. The document outlined a wartime-style mobilization of the entire federal government to increase access to testing, deploy medical supplies to affected areas, and bolster American workers and businesses hit by the pandemic's ongoing economic nightmare.

But much of the plan—reopening the Affordable Care Act insurance exchanges, increasing funding for medical supplies and health infrastructure, creating a U.S. Public Health Service Reserve Corps—is predicated on Biden's election in November, an outcome that is far from guaranteed if American voters are forced to choose between civic duty and physical health.

Trump Taps Once Exiled 29-Year-Old Aide to Help Him Purge Enemies and Watchdogs From Government
Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast/Photos GettyEven in the midst of a global pandemic and economic collapse, President Donald Trump is charging ahead on his mission to purge his administration of watchdogs who are tasked with exposing waste, fraud, and abuse. And as he goes about this mission, he's leaning on a 29-year-old loyalist once exiled from the Trump administration for a reported gambling problem, as well as a cadre of conservative firebrands who have fed his paranoia that government careerists are trying to destroy him.

Early this month, Trump fired Michael Atkinson, inspector general of the intelligence community, who had been asked to handle the anonymous whistleblower complaint last year that triggered the president's impeachment at the hands of House Democrats. On Monday, the president used his daily coronavirus press briefing at the White House to take swipes at Christi Grimm, a Department of Health and Human Services inspector general, after being asked about her report documenting the "severe shortages of testing supplies" in certain U.S. hospitals during the coronavirus crisis. On Tuesday, the news broke that Trump had

Take a Walk, And Know What You're Talking About, With These Books
If you're lucky enough to live in a place where you can still go on social distancing hikes, I hope you've been spending plenty of time outdoors. Leaning and loafing, observing a spear of grass, can take up an entire day and sounds pretty excellent right now. But it's difficult to do. When I'm hiking, I feel like green is just flying by me. I'm in awe, but it's difficult to appreciate nature without the proper tools.  I've been fortunate enough to go hiking with some friends who know a ton about nature, and it's always an eye-opening experience. If you wish you knew more about nature, whether it's trees, birds, plants, wildflowers, or even the idea of nature itself, these books will help you gain a better understanding, and make your hikes, walks, and strolls, that much more enjoyable.
