The Biden administration will begin making 400 million N95 masks available for free to Americans starting next week. The White House says the masks will come from the government's Strategic National Stockpile, which has more than 750 million of the highly protective masks on hand. The masks will be available for pickup at pharmacies and community health centers across the country.

How much will the government spend to send us these "free" masks, one per person?

The Department of Energy issued a final rule to replace Trump-era energy efficiency rules meant to allow for dishwashers and clothes dryers with shorter cycle times.

Why does the government need to regulate the time it takes for your washer and dryer to run a cycle? And I don't mean to imply "keep it short". People got paid to do this.

The Supreme Court could have ruled that the lower courts' stays on the mandate should continue, yet the justices remain silent on the vaccine mandate.

When you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

Everyone’s heard it by now. California’s got a housing shortage, with prices within 50 miles of the coast among the highest per square foot in the world.

Tax the hell out of 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. homes and vacation rentals. Corporations making a ton of money off temporary housing at the expense of the rest of us. They really should be ashamed.

A new study in Wisconsin suggests the predators keep prey away from roads, reducing crashes by 24 percent

Another study that is 100% based on "models" (in this case equations) that doesn't even bother to look at any empirical data like the real number of wolves, or the number of deer, or the number of collisions. This information would be so easy to find to validate any of their equations. This isn't just fake news, it's fake science.

ZeroHedge - On a long enough timeline, the survival rate for everyone drops to zero

Eastern Oregon should calve off into its own state and get 2 more senators. Counterbalance DC statehood. Make the Democrats vote to show their hypocrisy.

The liberal Chicago suburb of Evanston, Illinois, officially approved the first spending for "reparations" for black residents.

Just redistributing the wealth from the youngsters who are smoking dope to the Boomers that were born before 1969. Going to be kind of difficult to prove you lived in the city between 1919 and 1969, or that you are a direct decedent of one. That right there is racists!

(Missoula Current file photo) Saying the organization is on firm footing, Amy Allison Thompson is ready to relinquish her role as the director of the Poverello Center to someone with fresh energy and new ideas, and whoever steps in will have the pieces needed to tackle the challenges ahead.

Five years after signing on as the director of Missoula’s homeless shelter, Thompson on Monday announced her plans to step down come July. The time was right, she said, to move on and pass the organization on to someone new.

“I have been here for five years now and I really feel the Pov is in a good place,” she said. “We have a good leadership team and we’re in a strong place financially. I just decided that if I was going to leave, right now is the right time to do that so someone else could step in and take us to the next level.”

Thompson replaced Eran Pehan as shelter director in 2016, though she wasn’t new to the facility or the line of work. She worked at the old downtown shelter running the Joseph Residence. Thompson stepped into the role as the Pov’s director about one year after the new shelter opened on West Broadway.

Since then [2016], the shelter has seen its population run at or beyond capacity. Over the winter of 2019 and 2020, the Pov reached its capacity of 175 people nightly, even during a relatively mild winter.
