Pandemic be damned, Secret Service just signed a new golf cart rental contract with Trump's VA club

During the months of January, February, and into March, President Donald Trump spent many of his weekends golfing at his favorite golf clubs, all of which he happens to own. Even on March 7, as COVID-19 was beginning to sweep through New York City’s metro area with a population of more than 18,000,000 residents, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was issuing a state of emergency, Donald Trump was still golfing. Even worse, he was attending a 51st birthday party for his son’s girlfriend alongside his bestie, Lindsey Graham. The party took place at Mar-a-Lago and the $50,000 tab for the party was reportedly paid for by Trump campaign donors. The grift never ends.  Now we know Donald Trump had been briefed for weeks or even months on the projected loss of life in the U.S. due to COVID-19. Top Army brass warned the White House on Feb. 3 that their analysis showed a loss of life between 80,000 to 150,000. And Donald Trump still golfed.

Synchronized Starling Flocks Undulate in Mesmerizing Patterns Captured by Photographer Xavi Bou

 For starlings, there’s truth to safety in numbers. “In winter, starlings join in flocks of thousands of individuals to try to confuse the hawks that attack them, doing a mesmerizing dance,” said Barcelona-based photographer Xavi Bou, who recently released a video chronicling the birds’ synchronized swooping. In “Murmurations,” a name that refers specifically to the phenomenon, Bou captures the avian movements through a series of gray lines that swell and undulate with each obfuscated turn. More

Witness to MLB history: 101-year-old Phil Coyne even saw 'The Babe'

In a nine-decade career ushering at Pittsburgh Pirates home games, 101-year-old Phil Coyne witnessed the grand achievements of baseball royalty: Babe Ruth’s final three home runs; Bill Mazeroski’s World Series-winning walk-off blast in 1960; and Roberto Clemente’s stellar play in right field. Because of his advanced age, Coyne says he may not make it to a Pirates game this season. If so, the Pittsburgh native has thousands of baseball memories to hold tight.  Opening day has always been a favorite day for Coyne, who retired at 99 in 2018 after 81 years as an usher. The Pirates were to open at home Thursday against the Reds, but all MLB games are postponed indefinitely because of the coronavirus pandemic. "Whether it was in the stands or in the bleachers, that was always the big day, just like it is today,” said Coyne, whose ushering career spanned three Pittsburgh ballparks — Forbes Field, Three Rivers Stadium and the Pirates' current home, PNC Park. Coyne's first opener came not as a fan, but as an usher at
