As the rest of the world learns to live with Covid-19, China’s top leader, Xi Jinping, wants his country to keep striving to live without it — no matter the cost. China won a battle against its first outbreak in Wuhan, Mr. Xi said last week, and “we will certainly be able to win the battle to defend Shanghai,” he added, referring to the epicenter of the current outbreak in China.

This is the time of year that we reach a decision on Dolphins rookie coach Mike McDaniel — crunch time — as Miami faces its final stretch of crucial games with so much at stake. Everyone likes McDaniel. We enjoy his wise-cracking answers during press conferences. He’s funny. He’s refreshing. We enjoy his creative offense. It’s unique. We applaud his innovative ideas such as rearranging the locker room seating so that running backs now sit next to linebackers and defensive tackles instead of other running backs, cornerbacks sit next to guards instead of other cornerbacks, and so on. It’s a way of forcing players out of their comfort zone and into getting to know other teammates. Yes, McDaniel, who wore Supreme x Nike Air Force Ones in the opener vs. New England, has been different. But the Dolphins don’t need different, they need a coach who can take them to the next level and, ultimately, on a path toward a Super Bowl. The next few weeks will determine whether McDaniel fits … [Read more...] about Chris Perkins: Mike McDaniel has proven he’s different, now he must prove he can take Dolphins to next level
Every Tuesday and Friday, Ezra Klein invites you into a conversation about something that matters, like today’s episode with Anne Applebaum. Listen wherever you get your podcasts . Transcripts of our episodes are made available as soon as possible. They are not fully edited for grammar or spelling. [MUSIC] EZRA KLEIN: I’m Ezra Klein. This is “The Ezra Klein Show.” So much of what we imagine to be new is old. So many of the seemingly novel illnesses that afflict modern society are really just resurgent cancers, diagnosed and described long ago. That’s how Anne Applebaum, the Pulitzer Prize winning historian and journalist at The Atlantic, begins her introduction to a new edition of Hannah Arendt’s 1951 classic, “The Origins of Totalitarianism.” Why do people keep going back to this book? What is it about Arendt that matters, and that keeps mattering decade after decade? I think it’s this. Arendt was the master theorist of liberalism’s most fundamental blind spot, its … [Read more...] about Transcript: Ezra Klein Interviews Anne Applebaum

KABUL, Afghanistan — A foretaste of what would be in store for President Hamid Karzai after the election of a new American administration came last February, when Joseph R. Biden Jr., then a senator, sat down to a formal dinner at the palace during a visit here. Between platters of lamb and rice, Mr. Biden and two other American senators questioned Mr. Karzai about corruption in his government, which, by many estimates, is among the worst in the world. Mr. Karzai assured Mr. Biden and the other senators that there was no corruption at all and that, in any case, it was not his fault. The senators gaped in astonishment. After 45 minutes, Mr. Biden threw down his napkin and stood up. “This dinner is over,” Mr. Biden announced, according to one of the people in the room at the time. And the three senators walked out, long before the appointed time. Today, of course, Mr. Biden is the vice president. The world has changed for Mr. Karzai, and for Afghanistan, too. A White House … [Read more...] about Leader of Afghanistan Finds Himself Hero No More
close Video NYC resorts to involuntary hospitalizations of mentally ill homeless people to alleviate crime New York City public advocate Jumaane Williams weighs in on New York City’s growing crime problem and the current efforts that the city is implementing to attempt to lessen the crisis. New York City Mayor Eric Adams recently announced a plan to combat homelessness and surging subway crime that includes possible involuntary commitment of homeless individuals, which several experts told Fox News Digital is a cause for concern and could exacerbate problems in other key areas. " While I understand where the mayor is coming from, the problem that I see it's like slapping a Band-Aid on a gaping wound that needs surgery," Dr. Tania Glenn, president of Tania Glenn and Associates in Central Texas that specializes in mental health treatment for first responders, told Fox News Digital. " And so to me, I think it's pretty extreme. I understand … [Read more...] about Experts react to NYC plan to involuntarily commit mentally ill homeless: ‘Band-aid’ on ‘gaping wound’
