    Authorities said at 1:35 am on Saturday morning, Kelete drove his Jaguar sedan up a ramp the wrong way, then drove at high speeds on the shoulder, and hit two protesters A 24-year-old individual, Summer Taylor, died at a hospital, while the second person was hospitalized in serious condition This is just one of several news stories in recent days of cars plowing through protesters

    Anthony Fauci said we are in the middle of the first wave of Covid-19 He said he is not thinking about a "second wave" because we are "knee-deep" in the first wave and that we have never gotten out of it He said the virus is a very complex situation because it affects people in so many different ways, sometimes causing no symptoms but sometimes causing death He said the virus is "spectacularly transmissible" The Ivy League, which includes elite universities such as Harvard, Princeton, and Yale, said they would postpone the upcoming college football season due to concerns with coronavirus

    There was a delay with the mural, but now it's painted It is the second "Black Lives Matter" mural painted outside of Donald Trump's residence – with the first being in Washington, DC in front of the White House George Floyd told Minneapolis police officers that he "couldn't breathe" almost 30 times, according to transcripts of body camera footage that was just released as a part of the criminal court proceedings against the four police officers who are accused of murder or aiding and abetting

    Floyd told officers that he doesn't want to be placed in a police car because he has claustrophobia and anxiety He told officers that he would do anything At one point Floyd said, "Tell my kids I love them I'm dead" Officer Derek Chauvin, the one who kneeled on his neck, said, "You're doing a lot of talking

    Please" Another officer, Thomas Lane, asked if Floyd should be placed on his side, but Chauvin said no Michael Cohen is now back in federal prison A NBC News reporter said there were pictures that show Cohen at a restaurant in Manhattan outside of his home Cohen was serving a three-year sentence based on financial crimes and hush-money payments to two women who claimed they had affairs with Donald Trump
