House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Monday picked five House Republicans to serve on the select committee that will investigate the Jan.6 insurrection at the U. S. Capitol. The California Republican named five out of the 13 members of the select House committee, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has the final say over which lawmakers McCarthy can appoint. McCarthy's picks include Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., who will serve as the ranking member of the panel. The other members include Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio., Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Illinois., Rep. Kelley Armstrong, R-N. D. and freshman Rep. Troy Nehls, R-Texas. The most well known of the five lawmakers is likely Jordan, who is a committed supporter of former President Donald Trump and is the founding member of the House Freedom Caucus, a group of conservative lawmakers. In January, Jordan helped lead an unsuccessful effort to prevent the House of Representatives from impeaching Trump for inciting the Jan.6 insurrection. McCarthy's picks come just a day before the committee is set to hold its first hearing, which will feature witnesses from the U. S. Capitol Police Department and Metropolitan Police Department. It also comes more than six months after the violent insurrection in which supporters of then-President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol to disrupt the certification of President Joe Biden's electoral victory. The five Republicans picked by McCarthy are not the only GOP members of the panel. Earlier this month, House Speaker Pelosi appointed Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo. as one of her eight choices. Cheney was one of the two GOP representatives who had voted to create the committee last month. She was also one of 10 Republicans who voted to impeach Trump in January. The decision to choose Cheney was notable, especially as McCarthy reportedly threatened to strip GOP representatives' committee seats if they accepted an appointment to the panel from Pelosi, according to NBC news. Pelosi also appointed Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., who will lead the panel. The other members include Democratic Reps. Pete Aguilar, Adam Schiff, and Zoe Lofgren of California, Jamie Raskin of Maryland, Elaine Luria of Virginia and Stephanie Murphy of Florida. The formation of the panel has been a flashpoint of debate between Democrats and Republicans. The select committee passed in a 222-190 party-line vote last month, after Senate Republicans blocked a previous bill that would have created an independent commission to investigate the insurrection. Many GOP leaders asserted that the select committee would only duplicate existing efforts by the Justice Department and standing congressional committees to probe the attack on the Capitol. Senate Republicans even blocked a previous bill that would have created an independent commission to investigate the insurrection. The committee will investigate what caused the attack on the Capitol, which includes examining activities of law enforcement agencies and technological factors that may have prompted the event. It will also issue a report on its findings and how to prevent another attempt to disrupt the transfer of power.

TORONTO — Canada announced Monday it will begin letting fully vaccinated U. S. citizens into Canada on Aug.9, and those from the rest of the world on Sept.7. Officials said the 14-day quarantine requirement will be waived as of Aug.9 for eligible travelers who are currently residing in the United States and have received a full course of a COVID-19 vaccine approved for use in Canada. Public Safety Minister Bill Blair, who said he spoke with U. S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Friday, said the U. S. has not yet indicated any plan to change current restrictions at the land border. Canadians are able to fly into the United States with a negative COVID-19 test. Asked in Washington if the U. S. would reciprocate,White House press secretary Jen Psaki said, “We are continuing to review our travel restrictions. Any decisions about resuming travel will be guided by our public health and medical experts.… I wouldn’t look at it through a reciprocal intention.” U. S. Democratic Congressman Brian Higgins, whose district includes Buffalo and Niagara Falls, said the U. S. has “neglected to give reopening the northern border the serious attention it deserves, and there is no excuse.” Canadian officials also announced that children who aren’t vaccinated but are travelling with vaccinated parents won’t have to quarantine, but will have to avoid group activities including schools and daycare centers. Transport Minister Omar Alghabra also said a ban on direct flights from India will be extended to Aug.21 because of the delta variant. “The situation in India is still very serious,” he said. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said last week that Canada could start allowing fully vaccinated Americans into the country as of mid-August for nonessential travel and should be in a position to welcome fully vaccinated travelers from all countries by early September. Canada leads G20 countries in vaccination rates, with approximately 80% of eligible Canadians vaccinated with their first dose and over 50% of those eligible fully vaccinated. “This weekend, we even passed the U,S. in terms of fully vaccinated people,” Trudeau said. “Thanks to the rising vaccination rates and declining COVID-19 cases, we are able to move forward with adjusted border measures.” Reopening to the U. S first is a “recognition of our unique bond, especially between border communities,” Trudeau said. In the early days of the pandemic, the U. S. and Canadian governments closed the more than 5,500-mile border to nonessential traffic. With increasing vaccination rates and dropping infection rates, some were annoyed the two governments hadn’t laid out plans to fully reopen the border. Canada began easing its restrictions earlier this month, allowing fully vaccinated Canadians or permanent legal residents to return Canada without quarantining. But among the requirements are a negative test for the virus before returning, and another once they get back. Pressure has been mounting on Canada to continue to ease the restrictions at the border, which have been in effect since March 2020. Providing exemptions for travel into Canada amid the pandemic is politically sensitive and Trudeau is expected to call a federal election next month.

The Canadian government expects to have enough vaccine delivered for 80% of eligible Canadians to be fully vaccinated by the end of July. The U. S. only allowed for exports of vaccines into Canada in early May. Commercial traffic has gone back and forth normally between the two countries since the start of the pandemic. The U. S. Travel Association estimates that each month the border is closed costs $1.5 billion. Canadian officials say Canada had about 22 million foreign visitors in 2019 — about 15 million of them from the United States.

The Washington Post, on Monday, highlighted Hunter Biden's numerous ethical scandals with a full-page of artwork in their op-ed section. The op-ed promoted a fictional "art exhibition" by Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, that parodied recent scandals. Images within the piece included a framed photo reading "I Heart Burisma," referring to Hunter's time being on the board of the Ukrainian energy company despite his lack of experience in the industry. The feature also included an empty frame titled "Painters Who Would Appear in This Gallery if Not Named Biden." Washington Post editor Glen Kessler shared the piece on his Twitter account. "Wash Post op-ed page pulls no punches with biting and funny 'exhibition' of Hunter Biden’s art via Meghan Kruger," Kessler tweeted. Kessler previously mocked any investigation or media references to Hunter Biden’s ongoing scandals. In December, he referred to the investigation into Hunter’s foreign dealings as simply "laptop stuff." Kessler faced criticism for referencing Hunter Biden’s scandals only through a "humorous" piece months after the 2020 election. "It would be even more funny if the WaPo didn’t call these same suggestions Russian disinformation to protect Biden during the election," one user wrote. Another user tweeted, "Corruption makes me laugh almost as much as that time you used your fact check page to decide if Tim Scott’s family had really experienced racism. Remember that one Glenn? Classic." Mainstream media outlets largely underplayed Hunter Biden’s scandals claiming that reporting on the contents of his laptop was based on " Russian disinformatio n." The New York Post, which first reported the Hunter Biden laptop story, faced unprecedent resistance from social media companies like Facebook and Twitter, both of whom were censoring the sharing of the story. In addition, the New York Post was locked out of its Twitter account for sharing the story. As for Hunter Biden's artwork, Obama’s former ethics chief Walter Shaub previously denounced the White House’s ethics plans surrounding it. "So instead of disclosing who is paying outrageous sums for Hunter Biden’s artwork so that we could monitor whether the purchasers are gaining access to government, the WH tried to make sure we will never know who they are," Shaub wrote. "That’s very disappointing."

Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Yair Lapid demanded U. S. action against Ben & Jerry’s on Monday after the ice cream company announced they would no longer sell their products in Judea and Samaria, which they described as “Occupied Palestinian Territory.” “Ben & Jerry’s decision represents shameful surrender to antisemitism, to BDS and to all that is wrong with the anti-Israel and anti-Jewish discourse. We will not be silent,” Lapid tweeted. “Over 30 states in the United States have passed anti-BDS legislation in recent years. I plan on asking each of them to enforce these laws against Ben & Jerry’s. They will not treat the State of Israel like this without a response,” Lapid added. To date,35 states have passed legislation against the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel. Over 30 states in the United States have passed anti-BDS legislation in recent years. I plan on asking each of them to enforce these laws against Ben & Jerry's. They will not treat the State of Israel like this without a response. יאיר לפיד – Yair Lapid🟠 (@yairlapid) July 19, 2021 Ben & Jerry’s announced Monday that it would go against their values to allow their frozen treats to be sold in “Occupied Palestinian Territory.” Their statement read: We believe it is inconsistent with our values for Ben & Jerry’s ice cream to be sold in the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT). We also hear and recognize the concerns shared with us by our fans and trusted partners. We have a longstanding partnership with our licensee, who manufactures Ben & Jerry’s ice cream in Israel and distributes it in the region. We have been working to change this, and so we have informed our licensee that we will not renew the license agreement when it expires at the end of next year. Although Ben & Jerry’s will no longer be sold in the OPT, we will stay in Israel through a different arrangement. We will share an update on this as soon as we’re ready. Ben & Jerry’s have repeatedly made headlines over the years for issuing provocative political statements. In April, after Daunte Wright was shot in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, they tweeted that America’s police system “can’t be reformed” and “must be dismantled.” “The murder of #DaunteWright is rooted in white supremacy and results from the international criminalization of Black and Brown communities,” Ben & Jerry’s wrote. “This system can’t be reformed. It must be dismantled and a real system of public safety rebuilt from the ground up. #DefundThePolice.” The murder of #DaunteWright is rooted in white supremacy and results from the intentional criminalization of Black and Brown communities.

But you find out you are not allowed – Ben & Jerry’s has banned two scoops of the same flavor. You’d be furious! But this doesn’t even begin to compare to how furious you would be if you were told you were not allowed to marry the person you love.

(CBS New York) — The stock market can be like a rollercoaster ride. Unfortunately for many investors most of Monday’s ride was downhill. After topping 35,000 and reaching record highs last week, the Dow Jones plummeted over 700 points to finish the day at 33,873. The S&P 500 was off by about 1.6 percent, while the Nasdaq composite fell 1.1 percent. It was the market’s worst day of the year so far. But why was the market down so much today? The drop is attributed to multiple factors. Near the top of the list is the rise of COVID’s Delta variant, which is more dangerous and more contagious than other strains. Domestic vaccination numbers continue climb at a rate of about 500,000 shots per day. But while the U. S. population is 48.6 percent vaccinated, state percentages range from 66.9 percent in Vermont to 33.7 percent in Alabama. Outbreaks are increasingly occurring in areas where fewer people per capita have received shots. New cases increased by about 70 percent last week, with most states seeing rises. The U. S. economy is largely open, though some fear that could change if the Delta variant takes hold. Other countries, where vaccinations are harder to come by, have stricter limitations. Japan, for example, is the world’s third biggest economy, but only about 20 percent of its residents are fully vaccinated. The upcoming Olympics will be held completely without foreign or domestic fans in attendance. Outbreaks are growing increasing common across Southeast Asia as well. With such a tightly connected international economy, a virus outbreak in one part of the world can have far-reaching effects in other places. The domestic economy can’t continue its rise without goods from around the world and the smooth flow of supplies that go into making those goods. Look no further than the ongoing shipping delays that have backed up goods for months or the semiconductor issues that have wreaked havoc on car manufacturers’ production line. Economic slowdowns caused by COVID elsewhere will drag down the U. S. economy. Another concern is the tapering off of pandemic relief efforts at home. A fourth stimulus check is unlikely. The $300 weekly federal unemployment bonus is set to end on Labor Day, though 22 states have already discontinued it. Payments for federal student loans, many of which have been in administrative forbearance since March of 2020, will resume this fall. As well, the Federal Reserve looks poised to ease up its assistance to markets later this year. Some experts wonder if the recovery can continue its torrid pace without the help of the federal government. Stock market losses were felt across the board in Monday trading. But companies dependent on a strong recovery took some of the heaviest losses. United Airlines fell 6.2 percent, while Carnival Cruise Line fell 5.6 percent. At the same time, U. S. air travel remains strong, and consumer spending bumped up 0.6 percent in June, according to the Commerce Department. The Dow Jones sank over 10,000 points in the early days of the pandemic, falling from over 29,000 to just over 19,000. It lost about a third of its value in that span. The Dow has since regained all of that and then some in a run that’s lasted close to 16 months. Will concerns over the Delta variant and a slowing recovery end the run?

Billionaire businessman Jeff Bezos said on Monday he is excited and curious but not very nervous on the eve of taking part in his company Blue Origin’s inaugural suborbital flight alongside the oldest and youngest people ever bound for space. The world’s richest person and three crewmates are due to fly from a desert site in West Texas on an 11-minute trip to the edge of space aboard Blue Origin’s New Shepard, a 60-foot-tall (18.3 meters) and fully autonomous rocket-and-capsule combo. The flight represents an important milestone in the establishment of the space tourism industry. Bezos did a round of televised interviews ahead of the launch, set for around 8 a.m. CT (9 a.m. ET) from Blue Origin’s Launch Site One facility some 20 miles (32 km) outside the rural Texas town of Van Horn. “People keep asking if I’m nervous. I’m not really nervous, I’m excited. I’m curious. I want to know what we’re going to learn,” Bezos, founder of Amazon.com Inc, told the “CBS This Morning” program. “We’ve been training. This vehicle is ready. This crew is ready. This team is amazing,” Bezos said. “We just feel really good about it.” Bezos and his brother Mark Bezos will be joined in the all-civilian crew by 82-year-old female aviator Wally Funk and 18-year-old Oliver Daemen, a recent high school graduate set to attend the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands to study physics and innovation management in September. Daemen is the company’s first paying customer. His father heads investment management firm Somerset Capital Partners. The flight comes nine days after rival Richard Branson, the British billionaire businessman, was aboard his company Virgin Galactic’s rocket plane for its pioneering suborbital flight from New Mexico. Bezos sought to downplay any rivalry with Branson. “There’s one person who was the first person in space. His name was Yuri Gagarin. And that happened a long time ago,” Bezos said on the NBC’s program “Today,” referring to the Soviet cosmonaut who reached space in 1961. “I think I’m going to be number 570 or something. That’s where we’re going to be in this list. So this isn’t a competition. This is about building a road to space so that future generations can do incredible things in space,” Bezos said.

The U. S. men’s national basketball team traveled to Tokyo on Monday without guard Zach LaVine, who entered coronavirus health and safety protocols. In a statement, Team USA said it was hopeful LaVine could rejoin the team later this week. The U. S. men’s basketball team reshuffled its roster last week after losing guard Bradley Beal to health and safety protocols and forward Kevin Love withdrew from participation. U. S. women’s basketball also suffered a blow with the news that Katie Lou Samuelson, a member of the 3x3 Olympics team, would miss the Games following a positive test result. Samuelson said she was fully vaccinated. “Competing in the Olympics has been a dream of mine since I was little girl and I hope someday soon, I can come back to realize that dream,” Samuelson,24, wrote in an Instagram post. Earlier Monday, the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee confirmed that an alternate on the women’s gymnastics team had tested positive for the coronavirus while in training in Chiba prefecture outside Tokyo. Despite being vaccinated, Kara Eaker,18, of Grain Valley, Mo., began a 10 to 14 day quarantine, her coach, Al Fong, said in a text message. He added that she “feels fine.” Fong also said that Leanne Wong, another alternate and Eaker’s teammate at his GAGE Center gym in Blue Springs, Mo., is also under quarantine, expected to last until about July 31, because she is a considered a close contact. Wong, who is 17 and from Overland Park, Kansas, said at the Olympic trials last month that she had not been vaccinated. The opening ceremony is Friday and the first competitions are Wednesday. But organizers of the Tokyo Olympics, delayed one year by the pandemic, are struggling to manage public anxiety about the Games after a cluster of coronavirus cases that threaten to overshadow the festivities. As about 20,000 athletes, coaches, referees and other officials have poured into Japan in recent days, more than two dozen of them have tested positive for the virus, including three cases within the Olympic Village. An additional 33 staff members or contractors who are Japanese residents working on the Games have tested positive. Olympics organizers have said their measures — including repeated testing, social distancing and restrictions on movement — would limit, but not eliminate, coronavirus cases. The Games, originally scheduled for 2020, were postponed a year in the hopes the pandemic would have eased and they would herald a triumphant return to normal. Instead, they have become a reminder of the staying power of the virus and have fed a debate over whether Japan and the International Olympic Committee have their priorities straight.

Chart updated: July 19, 2021 at 10 p.m. WTOP is tracking vaccination rollout in the D. C. region. D. C., Virginia and Maryland are working to inoculate millions while dealing with an unprecedented demand and constricted supply of dosages. In late 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention began reporting coronavirus vaccination data for all 50 states, various U. S. territories and federal agencies. Updated every afternoon, their dataset includes the total number of doses each state has been provided and the number of doses that have actually been used. Comparing both numbers gives valuable insight into how much of a state's vaccine stockpile has been deployed versus how much is still in storage. The chart above displays the share of each figure compared to the state's total population, including all ages. WTOP will be updating these numbers once every evening, excluding federal holidays. The federal government also provides statistics on the number of people per state who have received one or two doses of a vaccine. As of March 2021, two vaccines — Pfizer and Moderna — require two doses before a person can be considered fully inoculated. On Feb.27, the FDA granted emergency use authorization to Johnson & Johnson for the first vaccine to only require a single dose. To guarantee that data definitions do not vary between the states and the numbers can be compared directly, WTOP.com is using the CDC as its source for daily vaccination statistics. State health agencies in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia are also releasing numbers on their own dashboards alongside COVID-19 test results, including demographics on vaccine distribution and county-by-county breakdowns which the CDC does not currently provide as part of its national dataset.

Another week, another billionaire with a rocket company going to space. Last week, it was Richard Branson earning his astronaut wings riding a space plane from Virgin Galactic, a company he founded 14 years ago, to an altitude of more than 50 miles above the skies of New Mexico. On Tuesday, it will be Jeff Bezos, the richest human being in the universe, who will strap into a capsule built by his rocket company, Blue Origin, and blast off even higher, to more than 62 miles above West Texas. When is the launch and how can I watch it? Blue Origin is aiming for the rocket to take off at 9 a.m. Eastern time on Tuesday, July 20. The company will begin coverage of the launch at 7:30 a.m. on its YouTube channel. The date coincides with the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. What is the New Shepard rocket and what will it do? New Shepard, the Blue Origin spacecraft, is named after Alan Shepard, the first American in space. It consists of a booster and a capsule on top, where the passengers will be. Unlike Virgin Galactic’s space plane, New Shepard is more of a traditional rocket, taking off vertically. Once the booster has used up its propellant — liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen — the capsule detaches from the booster. Both pieces continue to coast upward, above the 62-mile boundary often considered to be the beginning of outer space. During this part of the trajectory, the passengers will unbuckle and float around the capsule, experiencing about four minutes of free fall and seeing views of Earth and the blackness of space from the capsule’s large windows. The booster lands first and vertically, similar to the touchdowns of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rockets. The capsule lands minutes after the booster, descending under a parachute and cushioned by the firing of a last-second jet of air. The whole flight should last about 10 minutes. Is New Shepard safe? Blue Origin has launched New Shepard 15 times — all without anyone onboard — and the capsule landed safely every time. (On the first launch, the booster crashed; on the next 14 launches, the booster landed intact.) During one flight in 2016, Blue Origin performed an in-flight test of the rocket’s escape system where thrusters whisked away the capsule from a malfunctioning booster. A solid-fuel rocket at the bottom of the crew capsule fired for 1.8 seconds, exerting 70,000 pounds of force to quickly separate the capsule and steer it out of the way of the booster. Its parachutes deployed, and the capsule landed softly. Not only did the capsule survive, the booster was able to right itself, continue to space, and then, firing its engine again, land a couple of miles north of the launchpad in West Texas, a bit charred but intact. Who else is aboard the flight? Mr. Bezos is bringing along his younger brother. Mark Bezos,50, has lived a more private life. He is a co-founder and general partner at HighPost Capital, a private equity firm. Mark Bezos previously worked as head of communications at the Robin Hood Foundation, a charity that aids anti-poverty efforts in New York City. Blue Origin auctioned off one of the seats, with the proceeds going to Club for the Future, a space-focused charity founded by Mr. Bezos. The winning bidder paid $28 million — and we still do not know who that was. Last week, the company announced that the auction winner had decided to wait until a subsequent flight “due to scheduling conflicts.” Instead, Oliver Daemen, an 18-year-old student from the Netherlands who was one of the runners-up in the auction, and who had purchased a ticket on the second New Shepard flight, was bumped up. The fourth passenger is Mary Wallace Funk — she goes by Wally — a pilot who in the 1960s was among a group of women who passed the same rigorous criteria that NASA used for selecting astronauts.

Richard Branson is scheduled to fly into suborbital space on Sunday, nine days ahead of a similar journey by a fellow billionaire, Jeff Bezos. These first flights for the space moguls will also launch without liability insurance, the DealBook newsletter reports. Brokers say neither Virgin Galactic nor Mr. Branson appears to have bought coverage should the British business mogul be hurt, or worse. (The craft is most likely covered.) The same goes for Mr. Bezos and his company Blue Origin. Virgin, Mr. Branson and Blue Origin declined or did not respond to requests for comment. “We have talked to those companies about insurance and regulatory issues a lot,” said Sima Adhya, the head of space insurance at Hamilton, a company that offers insurance through Lloyd’s of London. “But there have been no policies specifically written for these flights.” Liability coverage is required on international flights. But Virgin’s craft, the V. S. Unity, launches and lands in the same place in New Mexico, so Mr. Branson’s flight, despite rocketing to the edge of space, is technically considered domestic travel. Virgin has said passengers will eventually be required to sign a contract agreeing to be fully liable for their own safety, but American law makes it nearly impossible to transfer all liability in the case of personal injury or loss of life. Insurance providers say it’s very likely that regulators will soon require liability policies. Space travel wouldn’t be covered by a typical life insurance policy, industry experts say. And it could also be an issue for corporations if executives decided that they, like Mr. Branson and Mr. Bezos, would like to travel to space. So-called key person policies could theoretically cover the stock market fallout if something happened to a top executive. There aren’t a lot of options for casual space travelers, but some insurers are interested in developing such policies. Allianz first began designing space tourism policies in 2012, though there is no evidence one has been sold. (Allianz did not return a request for comment.) Space tourism is new, but experts say there is now more than enough data on rocket launches to know how to price these policies. Lloyd’s of London estimates that the space insurance market has averaged $500 million in annual premium payments over the past decade. But those policies have generally covered satellites and other nonhuman cargo. “The big question for the insurance industry is whether this is more like aviation insurance or more like current space policies,” said Neil Stevens, a senior vice president of space products at the insurance broker Marsh. “There hasn’t been a situation where insurance markets haven’t stepped up.” But for now, space travel is launching without an insurance net for passengers. Developing those policies is one more small step that is likely needed before space travel can leap into a fully functioning tourism market.

Reporters failed to ask President Joe Biden or White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about Biden’s worsening border crisis during their respective press events Monday, which comes after the administration released new numbers for June last week. Because the administration released June’s numbers toward the end of Psaki’s press briefing Friday, reporters were unable to ask about them, which worsened for the fifth consecutive month under Biden. Fox News reported: CBP said that 188,829 migrants were encountered at the southern border, an increase from the 180,034 encountered in May. It is also a sharp rise since when President Biden took office — there were 78,442 encounters in January.… The number of unaccompanied children encountered increased by 8%, with 15,253 encounters in June compared to 14,137 in May. Encounters of family units, meanwhile, surged by 25% to 55,805 from 44,746 in May. The numbers from Biden’s border crisis are the worst numbers ever recorded by the Department of Homeland Security, which was founded in 2002. Despite the catastrophe on America’s southern border, reporters failed to ask Biden about it when he took a few questions at the end of a press event during which he spoke in part about skyrocketing inflation. No reporters asked Psaki about the border during Monday’s White House press briefing. Polling has shown that a majority of Americans disapprove of Biden’s handling of his border crisis and recent local elections on the border suggest Democrats might be facing serious trouble in upcoming elections because of the border. Former top Department of Homeland Security officials blasted the Biden administration in response to the latest numbers on its border crisis.

Rural teacher-turned-political novice Pedro Castillo became the winner of Peru’s presidential election after the country’s longest electoral count in 40 years. H e defeated right-wing politiician Keiko Fujimori by just 44,000 votes. Electoral authorities on Monday released the final official results more than a month after the run-off election took place in the South American nation. Mr Castillo’s supporters included Peru’s poor and rural citizens, with the new leader known for popularising the phrase ‘No more poor in a rich country’. Peru is the world’s second-largest copper producer but its economy has been crushed by the coronavirus pandemic. The poverty level has increased to almost one-third of the population, eliminating the gains of a decade.

A federal judge has blocked a challenge to Indiana University's requirement that students get vaccinated against COVID-19 before returning to campus this fall. Indiana University is one of hundreds of colleges mandating COVID-19 vaccinations this year. According to university policy, students and staff must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless they qualify for a medical, religious or ethical exemption, or unless a student is attending a fully online program. Students who qualify for an exemption will need to take extra precautionary measures on campus by wearing masks, taking additional coronavirus tests and either heading home or quarantining in the case of an outbreak. Students who refuse the vaccine and don't qualify for an exemption can have their classes cancelled and access to online university systems revoked. Eight students sued the school in June, asking for a preliminary injunction to halt the university's policy. In the complaint, they argued the rules trample on their rights under the 14th Amendment, "which includes rights of personal autonomy and bodily integrity, and the right to reject medical treatment." The students, represented by the Bopp Law Firm in Terre Haute, Ind., had a range of reasons for opposing the mandate, including the relatively low risk of developing serious symptoms based on their age and the unknown long-term effects of the vaccine. (The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said serious side effects "are extremely unlikely.") In their complaint, the students compared the vaccination policy to the Tuskegee syphilis study, one of the most infamous abuses of medical ethics in U. S. history. They argued the university's mandate stood in opposition to modern medical ethics. This week, the court denied the motion for a preliminary injunction, which would have halted the vaccine requirement as the case worked its way through the courts. In his ruling, U. S. District Judge Damon Leichty wrote, "The situation here is a far cry from past blunders in medical ethics like the Tuskegee Study." It's important to understand, he said, that the university isn't forcing anyone to get a vaccine. It's offering students and staff options: They can either get the vaccine, apply for an exemption or find a new school to attend (or, in the case of staff, a new job). Since the policy only applies to the fall 2021 semester, students can also choose to take the semester off or attend all remote classes. In the complaint, multiple students said they have religious reasons for opposing masks, which they'd need to wear if they qualified for an exemption from the vaccine requirement. In response, Leichty wrote that while the right to exercise religion is fundamental, the university's vaccine mandate applies the same way to all students: "One may well applaud the university for going beyond what the constitution requires: courts have consistently held that schools that provided a religious exemption from mandatory vaccination requirements did so above and beyond that mandated by the Constitution." In a statement to NPR, Indiana University spokesman Chuck Carney said, "We appreciate the quick and thorough ruling which allows us to focus on a full and safe return. We look forward to welcoming everyone to our campuses for the fall semester." In an email, James Bopp Jr., one of the attorneys representing the students, told NPR, "An admitted IU student's right to attend IU cannot be conditioned on the student waiving their rights to bodily integrity, bodily autonomy, and consent to medical treatment like IU has done here." Bopp said the students plan to appeal the judge's decision.

Six people were hospitalized after a home in a Dallas suburb was leveled by an explosion Monday afternoon, fire rescue officials said. Plano Fire Rescue said on Twitter that an explosion was confirmed at the site, but they did not know the cause. Atmos Energy Corporation, one of the largest natural gas distributors in the nation, was assisting with the investigation. One resident was inside the home and was hurt, according to fire officials. The other five were neighbors. Witnesses told local news outlets that they heard a series of booms, which sounded like lightning. Most surrounding homes also sustained damage. “All of the sudden I heard what I thought was my sliding glass door breaking,” one neighbor told KTVT . “And I just noticed two picture frames on the wall fall down and the sound and that didn’t match up. When my husband pulled into our garage, the roof in our garage had caved in.” Plano police told the station that they were shutting off gas lines in the area. “We are saddened by today’s tragedy of a house explosion in our City. Several of our residents were injured," Plano Mayor John Muns said in a statement, reported KXAS-TV. "We are keeping them and their families close to our hearts and hoping for a swift and full recovery. Plano Fire-Rescue is working diligently to determine the cause of the blast. We’re asking all of you to keep the victims in your prayers.” Video footage from the scene shows rubble where the home once was with debris and lumber scattered across the yard and into the street. There were lightning storms in the area on Monday afternoon.

Prince Harry is getting at least $20 million upfront to publish his memoirs — with the very same über-publisher who gave Barack and Michelle Obama a $65 million book deal. As Page Six revealed, Harry has been secretly writing a memoir for nearly a year and has now sold it to Penguin Random House. While the renegade royal said Monday that he will be donating all the proceeds to charity, it’s yet to be made clear whether he will keep the multi-million advance — believed to be at least $20 million, according to publishing insiders. Meanwhile, we’re told that Harry’s co-writer, power ghostwriter J. R. Moehringer, is getting at least $1 million as an advance. It was Penguin Random House CEO Markus Dohle who snapped up President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama. The German father of two oversaw the record-breaking deal for their memoirs, with Michelle’s book “Becoming” 2018’s fastest-selling book, selling 725,000 copies on the first day of publication. President Obama’s lengthy 768-page memoir “A Promised Land” sold 800,000 copies in its first day last November. “But I’m not rubbing it in over dinner,” he told Jimmy Kimmel, adding that Michelle joked all his book sales could help pay for her shoe purchases. Dohle admitted to the Financial Times in March 2019: “There is always some risk when you do a big deal and this was a very big deal,” he says. “But commercial risk is part of our business… The first book has worked fantastically well and I have great confidence that the second book [President Obama’s memoirs] will also be a great success.” Markle also recently published her children’s book, “The Bench,” with the children’s division of Random House. Speaking of the company’s deal with Harry, Dohle said: “All of us at Penguin Random House are thrilled to publish Prince Harry’s literary memoir and have him join the world-renowned leaders, icons, and change-makers we have been privileged to publish over the years. “Prince Harry has harnessed his extraordinary life experience as a prince, a soldier, and a knowledgeable advocate for social issues, establishing himself as a global leader recognized for his courage and openness. It is for that reason we’re excited to publish his honest and moving story.” Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have followed in the Obamas’ footsteps since quitting the royal family and moving to California, similarly inking big-money deals with both Netflix and Spotify. But while insiders tell us that Harry and his wife Meghan Markle know the Obamas, they’re not believed to be “close pals”. Harry isn’t believed to be finished on his memoirs, which will be published in late 2022. Reps for Random House and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were unavailable for comment.

Riyadh: Saudi Arabia will allow citizens who have received two doses of Covid-19 vaccine to travel abroad from August 9, the Saudi Press Agency reported. The Saudi Interior Ministry’s decision comes as part of precautionary measures against the virus and its new variants, it said. The decision excepts children below 12 who should have a valid health insurance policy, approved by the Saudi Central Bank (SAMA), to cover the risks of the Covid-19, the Xinhua news agency reported. It also doesn’t apply to citizens who recovered from the virus in less than six months, and those who recovered and received one dose of the vaccine. Saudi Arabia lifted the travel ban on citizens on May 17 after a remarkable reduction in infection cases. The ban was lifted after more than a year of imposing it as part of a series of steps to deal with Covid-19 outbreaks. Get the news updates on WhatsApp & Telegram by subscribing to our channels.

Florida Rep. Vern Buchanan tested positive for Covid-19 after vaccination, according to a statement from his office Monday. Fully vaccinated entertainment journalist Catt Sadler warned her hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers not to "let your guard down," after she got sick after caring for someone with Covid-19 who wasn't vaccinated. Last Thursday, six players on the New York Yankees tested positive. This was the second instance of breakthrough cases on the team. Breakthrough cases are also already cropping up in the Tokyo Summer Olympics. An alternate member of the US Olympics gymnastics team, Kara Eaker, who had been vaccinated tested positive for Covid-19 Sunday, her father confirmed to CNN affiliate KMBC Monday. So had basketball player Katie Lou Samuelson who confirmed on her Instagram account that she would not be able to compete in Tokyo. The good news is that the number of breakthrough infections can be reduced, but it will take a much bigger community effort to protect people from getting Covid-19. A breakthrough infection by definition Someone with a breakthrough infection has tested positive for the coronavirus that causes Covid-19 at least 14 days after they have been fully vaccinated according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine full vaccination is after two doses. For the Johnson & Johnson vaccine it's a single dose. Breakthrough infections can cause disease with symptoms, and some people can have no symptoms at all. Research has shown that if people become infected after vaccination, typically they get a milder case. No vaccine is perfect Covid-19 vaccines are highly protective against lab confirmed infection and seem to provide protection against the variants; however, a tiny fraction still become infected, just like they can with any other vaccine. "There is no such thing as a vaccine that's 100% effective," said Dr. Amy Edwards, the associate medical director of Pediatric Infection Control at UH Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital in Cleveland. With other diseases like mumps or rubella, breakthrough infections are highly rare, Edwards said, because so many people have been vaccinated against those diseases, and mumps and rubella are in low circulation. "The chance that a person who happened to be a nonresponder to the vaccine would come in contact with those diseases is very low," said Edwards. "The reason why we are seeing more breakthrough infections with Covid is because there are so many unvaccinated people." Another example is the flu vaccine, which reduces the risk of getting sick between 40-60%, studies show. The Covid-19 vaccines are much more protective -- as much as 95% effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization and deaths. Breakthrough infections by the numbers We don't know how many mild or asymtomatic breakthrough Covid-19 infections there are in the US. The CDC stopped counting in May. The CDC still counts hospitalizations and deaths from breakthrough infections. The agency said it made this transition to "help maximize the quality of the data collected on cases of greatest clinical and public health importance." As of July 12, there have been 5,492 patients with Covid-19 vaccine breakthrough infections who have been hospitalized or died, according to the CDC. This is a small number among the more than 159 million people that have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19. It's hard to draw any specific conclusions about the rate of infection from these numbers, but they are likely an undercount, according to the CDC. Surveillance data relies on voluntary reporting, and not all reporting is complete or even representative of total infections. What scientists do know is that 99.5% of deaths from Covid-19 in the US right now are among people who are not vaccinated, US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy told CNN's Dana Bash Sunday. The CDC is monitoring breakthrough infections to identify which people are most likely to have breakthrough infections. The CDC said there are no unusual patterns so far. Who may be more vulnerable to breakthrough infections It's not totally clear yet. A study of breakthrough infections that caused hospitalization in Israel though found that 6% of the 152 people it studied had no underlying health conditions. On Friday, the CDC warned that vaccines may not protect people who are immunocompromised. People with weakened immune systems are those who have had an organ transplant, are receiving chemotherapy for cancer, are on dialysis or are taking certain medicine that suppresses the immune system. Generally, older people may be more vulnerable to a breakthrough infection, since studies show the immune system declines with age. A preprint, non-peer reviewed, study in England found that older adults were at greater risk of a breakthrough infection. Those Covid-19 cases were typically much milder than they were in the unvaccinated. People who live in parts of the country with low vaccination rates may also have a greater likelihood of a breakthrough infection since they would be encountering more people with the disease. What can you do to prevent a breakthrough infection "If we want breakthrough cases to stop, then we need to have everybody else get vaccinated, so there's no virus in circulation and then it won't matter anymore," Edwards said. Nationally, less than 50% of the US has been fully vaccinated against Covid-19, according to the CDC. If more people are vaccinated, the coronavirus has fewer people it can infect. It also limits the number of new variants that can develop. More variants in circulation increase the likelihood that the coronavirus can evade the protection of the vaccines. "If you are not vaccinated, you remain at risk," said CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky on Friday. "This is becoming a pandemic of the unvaccinated." When asked if people who are vaccinated should be doing anything different than they normally would on Sunday, Murthy told CNN that even with a breakthrough infection "which, again, happens in a very small minority of people -- it's likely to be a mild or asymptomatic infection." He did say he would wear a mask indoors out of an abundance of caution if he is in an area with a large number of unvaccinated people. "Again, even if the vaccine isn't offering full protection it is offering a lot of protection," Edwards said. "Even when they do not work as well in patients who are immunocompromised, they do provide some protection. That's why it's up to the rest of us to get vaccinated because we want to protect those people, the fragile and the elderly, and everyone else." "So please, I cannot say this enough," Edwards said "Get vaccinated."

During a Monday interview with CNN, Bezos took time to respond to critics who have asserted that he and Virgin founder Richard Branson, who recently completed the 22nd flight test for the VSS Unity, are turning space travel into "joyrides for the wealthy." "So what do you say to those critics?" she asked, to which Bezos replied that "they're largely right." Blue Origin's trip to space is about getting "really good at operational space travel," Jeff Bezos says. "If we can do that, then we'll be building a road to space for the next generations to do amazing things there. And those amazing things will solve problems here on Earth." pic.twitter.com/dU6qAR2ZJB "We have lots of problems in the here and now on Earth and we need to work on those, and we always need to look to the future. We’ve always done that as a species, as a civilization," he told CNN. "We have to do both." "And those amazing things will solve problems here on Earth," he floated. Our astronauts have completed training and are a go for launch. #NSFirstHumanFlight pic.twitter.com/rzkQgqVaB6 Bezos and his crew, which includes his younger brother and Blue Origin's first paying customer, is set to depart Earth at 9 a.m. ET on July 20.

White House spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris Symone Sanders was caught spreading misinformationn on Monday regarding the vice president’s coronavirus test. During the White House press briefing on Monday afternoon, press secretary Jen Psaki said that Harris had been tested for the coronavirus and that there was no detetion of the COVID-19 virus, attributing the information to the vice president’s office. “I think the Vice President’s Office put out that she was tested, and that she did — there was no detection of COVID-19,” she said. But that was not what the vice president’s office had said in a statement Sanders released on Saturday night. In that statement, Sanders wrote that Harris and her staff “do not need to be tested” after meeting with Texas state lawmakers on Tuesday — even though some of them tested positive for the virus. Sanders’ full statement read: On Tuesday, July 13th, Vice President Harris met with members of the Texas state legislature who are temporarily in Washington, D. C. Earlier today, it was brought to our attention that two of the members at that meeting tested positive for COVID-19. Based on the timeline of these positive tests, it was determined the Vice President and her staff present at the meeting were not at risk of exposure because they were not in close contact with those who tested positive and therefore do not need to be tested or quarantined. The Vice President and her staff are fully vaccinated. When Politico’s West Wing Playbook questioned the vice president’s office about the potential conflict, Sanders responded that both of the statements were true. Sanders told Politico on Monday that “the vice president is tested regularly as is her staff and that as a part of that regular testing, she was tested this weekend and Covid-19 was not detected.” “That is not in conflict with the statement we put out Saturday,” Sanders added. That statement demonstrates that Sanders deliberately misled the press on Saturday about whether Harris would or had taken a coronavirus test or that there were concerns about her contracting the virus after meeting with the Texas Democrats. The Vice President’s office has still refused to answer questions about Harris’s health or whether she met with the president on Monday. The White House failed to release any information about Harris’s activities on Monday and she did not appear publicly since she was last seen with President Biden on Friday.

After a dizzying rally this year, stock markets were hit hard on Monday as a spike in COVID-19 infections around the world reinforced the reality of living with a pandemic that refuses to go away. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, tumbled 725 points, or 2.1%, and had its worst day since October, while the S&P500 fell 1.6%. The losses mark a rare day of declines for a market that was at record highs as early as last week. Here are three key things to know about the market's fall. In a word, COVID-19. Though the rollout of vaccines has allowed some semblance of normality to return in the U. S., countries such as Indonesia continue to see surging infections, especially from those tied to the most recent Delta variant. The continued rise in cases is starting to spook investors as the world continues to deal with the economic and health fallout from the pandemic. Among the leading decliners on Monday were travel and leisure stocks like United Airlines, which fell 5.5% and cruise operator Carnival, which slumped 5.7%. The pandemic worries come at a time when investors were already concerned about inflation. Data last week showed consumer prices surging 5.4% in June from a year earlier, the biggest hikes in nearly 13 years. Although the Federal Reserve has insisted inflation is transitory, not all investors all convinced. Higher-than-expected inflation could force the Fed to apply the brakes to the economy earlier, including by raising interest rates earlier than in 2023, when it's currently expected to do so. It's hard to say with one day of falls alone. These types of declines are not uncommon, but they felt more jarring because markets so far have been on a dizzying run: As of Friday, the Dow was up 13.3% for the year while the S&P 500 was up 15.2% for the year, with both hitting a series of ever-climbing record highs. In fact, experts have been warning markets for a while that markets were due for a pullback, and chances are sentiment could remain volatile for a while. Savita Subramanian, the head of U. S. equity strategy and quantitative strategy at Bank of America Securities, says it is important to remember some market volatility is normal and called Monday's falls "not something to write home about." "It's actually kind of a normal market environment," she says. For the most part, analysts still expect gains in markets to continue but the pace might slow down if inflation and COVID-19 worries continue to take hold. Valuations are high and investors will likely want to see more confidence that recent gains are justified. A lot will depend on the trajectory of the economy and the pandemic. The economy is coming off a blockbuster first half of the year. That's likely to be reflected in the economic growth data for the April-June quarter due out next week, which is likely to show a blistering pace of expansion. That pace of gains is likely to be unsustainable especially as most of the impact from the government stimulus measures fade. Bond investors in fact have been betting for weeks now that they expect a slower economy in the second half, and those bets are starting now to be reflected in stocks as well. A slower – but still solid – economy is not a bad thing for markets. But a lot can still go wrong. COVID-19 infections could continue to spike. Key sectors of the economy also continues to be hobbled by supply chain disruptions and labor shortages. And inflation could prove harder to reverse. "I think common sense will tell you that there are going to be issues coming along," says Michael Purves, CEO of investment firm Tallbacken Capital. "And a lot of that will probably weigh on some part of the recovery story."

NEW YORK—New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday he does not plan to reinstate a citywide mask mandate even as COVID-19 cases increase, opting instead to focus on vaccinating more residents. There have been calls for New York City to follow the lead of Los Angeles County, which announced last week that it will require masks to be worn indoors amid a sharp increase in virus cases. But De Blasio insisted vaccinations are a better strategy for the nation’s most populous city. “Masks have value, unquestionably, but masks are not going at the root of the problem. Vaccination is,” the mayor said during a livestreamed press briefing. “So we do not intend a mask mandate. We do intend to double down on vaccination.”

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Caitlyn Jenner’s earnings have fallen precipitously in the last several years from a high of $2.5 million in 2016 when she had her own reality TV show to $550,000, tax filings show. Jenner is among those running in California’s upcoming recall election of Gov. Gavin Newsom. All candidates were required to release their tax returns for the past five years by last Friday, though Jenner and many of the other hopefuls only submitted four years because they haven’t yet filed their 2020 returns. Jenner was the 1976 Olympic decathlon gold medalist who married Kris Jenner and appeared with her on the reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Jenner came out as a transgender woman in 2015. Her tax returns offer a glimpse into how her fame benefitted her financially. She made $1.9 million in 2017, when her memoir “The Secrets of My Life” was released, and $2.5 million in 2016, which was the second season of her reality show “I Am Cait.” She made roughly $1.5 million on the book. It wasn’t immediately clear from the tax returns how much Jenner made from the show. Jenner’s income was about $550,000 in both 2018 and 2019. Much of it came through an entity called Team Tours Inc. and her business, Cait’s World. Her campaign did not respond to request for comment about what type of work Jenner did for either business. She also earned income and paid taxes in Australia, Greece, Indonesia, the United Kingdom and Ireland. She made by far the most in Australia, where her 2019 tax filings show $320,000 in gross income. That year she appeared on the British show “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here,” which was set in Australia. Jenner is currently in Australia forming a celebrity version of the reality show “Big Brother.” All of Jenner’s charitable giving went to her Caitlyn Jenner Foundation, which says on its website it provides grants to organizations that empower transgender people. Candidates for governor were also required to file statements of economic interest that show their investments. Jenner’s forms show she holds stock in dozens of companies, including investments worth $10,000 to $100,000 in California-based Facebook and Google. She has up to $10,000 worth of investments in Boeing, Wells Fargo, Berkshire Hathaway and many other companies. The statement values Cait’s World and CJ Memories, her publishing entity, between $100,000 and $1 million. She also has an aircraft holding company called Caitlyn Aviation and is a passive investor in Luma Sun Care Inc., a skin care company run by her associate Sophia Hutchins. Newsom released his 2019 tax returns in May, which showed he made $1.7 million, about a half-million more than he earned the year before, his last as lieutenant governor. Newsom’s campaign said he released his tax returns to the secretary of state, though they have not been posted online. Since Newsom is technically not a candidate in the recall, he was not required to file them. The recall election is Sept.14. Here’s a look at tax information for other major Republicans among the 41 candidates: –Kevin Faulconer, a Republican and the former mayor of San Diego, took home between $69,000 and $80,000 in mayoral salary annually from 2016 to 2019. He also hasn’t filed his 2020 returns. Faulconer filed jointly with his wife, who runs an events business in San Diego. The couple’s charitable giving was donations to Goodwill. John Cox, a multimillionaire Republican businessman who lost to Newsom in 2018, had $0 in taxable income in 2019 after recording losses on some of the apartment complexes he owns and taking deductions including $139,000 in charitable giving. —Assemblyman Kevin Kiley reported $113,000 in income in 2020, which included about $1,400 from the sale of cattle from Ose-Kiley Cattle, the company he owns with former Republican U. S. Rep. Doug Ose, another candidate in the recall election. He also reported receiving over $10,000 in loan repayment assistance from his alma mater, Yale Law School. Kiley paid about $18,000 in federal tax that year and was eligible for a refund of about $1,600. He is a Republican. —Real estate investor Ose and his wife, filing jointly, reported about $717,000 in income in 2019, the most recent year available. Their tax bill was $193,000 but they had made total payments of $260,000 so were eligible for a $67,000 refund. __ Associated Press writer Michael R. Blood contributed from Los Angeles.

Fox has implemented its own version of a vaccine passport — a concept that Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham have rallied against. Fox Corporation, the parent company of Fox News, asked employees in June to self-report their vaccination status to receive a “Fox Clear Pass,” The Hill’s Ryan Grim reported Monday. Human resources notified Fox employees via email that it had “developed a secure, voluntary way for employees to self-attest their vaccination status.” Employees with the “Fox Clear Pass” are not required to wear a mask or social distance while at work, according to the email. But unvaccinated employees or those who have not uploaded their vaccination status are required to wear a mask and social distance while at work. Unvaccinated employees must also complete a daily COVID-19 screening. On Monday, Emergency Room Doctor Rob Davidson urged unvaccinated people to turn away from sources like Fox News that he believes are encouraging them to avoid getting vaccinated. Last month, Carlson likened vaccine passports to segregation as the “Medical Jim Crow.” “If we still had water fountains, the unvaccinated would have separate ones,” Carlson said. Ingraham has also shared anti-vaccination sentiments, even calling the vaccine an “experimental drug” earlier this month. Fox Corporation’s representative did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment. Fox News referred TheWrap to Fox Corp. when asked to comment.

MILWAUKEE — High atop the outside of Fiserv Forum – way above even a leaping Giannis Antetokounmpo’s reach – blares the Bucks’ postseason motto. “HISTORY IN THE MAKING” it reads, a sign and a situation that’s now impossible to ignore. And yet, that’s exactly what the Bucks are trying to do. They can indeed make history Tuesday night as Milwaukee’s first NBA champion since 1971. But the Bucks have to resist thinking about what happens if they beat the Phoenix Suns in Game 6. “It’s hard, because you work so hard to be in that moment, which is tomorrow,” Antetokounmpo said Monday. “It’s hard not to get ahead of yourself. But this is the time that you’ve got to be the most disciplined.” The Bucks have won the last three games to set up a potential party 50 years in the making. Around 17,000 fans are expected inside the arena and the Bucks announced Monday that the Deer District has been expanded to allow up to 65,000 fans to stand shoulder-to-shoulder outside. Barricades line the sidewalks around the arena and restaurants within walking distance were contemplating how to get employees into and back home from work through the anticipated crowds. It’s a scene that couldn’t have happened for much of this season that has been played during the coronavirus pandemic. The Bucks only began permitting a limited number of fans at games in February, nearly two months after the season began. Even when postseason play started in May, capacity was capped at 9,100, a little above 50%. Whatever the number is Tuesday, it will sound a whole lot louder if the Bucks are lifting the Larry O’Brien Trophy. “But we got to focus, we got to do our job,” Antetokounmpo said. “Then they can do their job celebrating at the end. But we got to do our job first.” The Suns are excited, too. That’s how Chris Paul said they feel, despite blowing a 2-0 lead and facing elimination for the first time in this postseas
