[NYPOST] A teen murder suspect in the slaying of Barnard College student Tessa Majors is expected to plead guilty Wednesday for his involvement in her botched mugging death, according to an official.
Zyairr Davis, 13, has admitted to helping Luchiano Lewis, 15, and Rashaun Weaver, 15, rob the 18-year-old college freshman in Morningside Park in December, but has denied being the one who stabbed her.
Lewis allegedly put Majors in "a bear hug or headlock" during the robbery, while Weaver allegedly stabbed her with such fury that feathers flew from her winter coat, authorities have alleged. The pair were arrested in February some two months after Davis.
The hearing is scheduled to be held before Family Court Judge Carol Goldstein at 2 p.m. Wednesday in Manhattan court, where Davis plans to make an admission of guilt in the case, New York courts front man Lucian Chalfen confirmed. The hearing will be held virtually by video, he said.
[Found rooting around in the disorganized mess that is WhatFinger] Resolution HJR074, drafted in March, requires the state to "[extend] a safe harbor to Virginians and other United States citizens whose constitutional rights are being violated by elected officials." It also affirms that citizens have a right to maintain arms equivalent "to those of their government's basic infantry unit." Does this mean I can finally get that AT4?
#2 Clem. Yes, no income taxes but sales taxes are a little high.
"It does, however, have a tax on income from interest and dividends on stocks and many bonds, which in most cases will affect retirees. Bottom line, as a retiree you will probably be better off tax-wise retiring in Tennessee than almost any other state. Tennessee's state and local tax burden is one of the lowest in the U.S. The Tax Foundation estimates its total tax burden at 8.3% of income, 44th highest nationally."

Thanks for the invite, Deacon. Can I use your name when they stop me at the border for being a blue state swamp yankee?

To be fair, the problem would have been considerably less deadly had Italy a) not had a large resident population of illegal Chinese workers going back and forth to Wuhan during the critical time, and b) had a grossly inadequate medical infrastructure to cope with the normal patient load, never mind a pandemic, leading them to send patients home untreated unless they were otherwise healthy, under 60, and in severe distress.
[Time] Hundreds of demonstrators have gathered in Rome shunning masks to protest against the Italian government's measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

general have emerged as a virus-denial camp in Italy, the first Western country to be hit by the global pandemic.
The leader of the so-called Orange Vests told the protest crowd assembled in the Piazza del Popolo on Tuesday that children shouldn't be made to wear masks and he threatened to ‘'slap'' anyone who did.
Antonio Pappalardo added that he refuses to wear a mask himself and said: ‘'These lungs mine. I will take care of my lungs. Breathing is sacred.''
The people packing the square didn't adhere to social-distancing guidelines set by the government.
Pappalardo portrayed such containment measures as an infringement of freedom. Other speakers at the protest asserted that the pandemic ‘'never existed'' and alleged that politicians had played it up to enhance their own powers.
Italy went into a nationwide lockdown in early March. The country enters a new phase in emerging from the virus emergency with the opening of regional and external borders on Wednesday.
Oh, it existed and exists. It's just not the apocalyptic horror show it was sold as. That is coming, and when it does. masks, social distancing, St. Fauci, Scarf Woman and Bill Gates will not be able to stop it, gummint directives won't be able to stop it. See: Last Man on Earth and Omega Man

Based on the numbers we have now -- as distinct from the computer models used a few months ago -- you could never justify a lock down.
[AP] Throughout January, the World Health Organization publicly praised China for what it called a speedy response to the new coronavirus. It repeatedly thanked the Chinese government for sharing the genetic map of the virus "immediately," and said its work and commitment to transparency were "very impressive, and beyond words."
But behind the scenes, it was a much different story, one of significant delays by China and considerable frustration among WHO officials over not getting the information they needed to fight the spread of the deadly virus, The Associated Press has found.
Despite the plaudits, China in fact sat on releasing the genetic map, or genome, of the virus for more than a week after three different government labs had fully decoded the information. Tight controls on information and competition within the Chinese public health system were to blame, according to dozens of interviews and internal documents.
Chinese government labs only released the genome after another lab published it ahead of authorities on a virologist website on Jan. 11. Even then, China stalled for at least two weeks more on providing WHO with detailed data on patients and cases, according to recordings of internal meetings held by the U.N. health agency through January — all at a time when the outbreak arguably might have been dramatically slowed.
WHO officials were lauding China in public because they wanted to coax more information out of the government, the recordings obtained by the AP suggest. Privately, they complained in meetings the week of Jan. 6 that China was not sharing enough data to assess how effectively the virus spread between people or what risk it posed to the rest of the world, costing valuable time.
"We’re going on very minimal information," said American epidemiologist Maria Van Kerkhove, now WHO’s technical lead for COVID-19, in one internal meeting. "It’s clearly not enough for you to do proper planning."...
