How I’ve Grieved My Mother’s Death During the Pandemic

This year on my mother’s birthday, in October, I woke up from one of many dreams I’ve had about her since her death. I’d been sitting with family and friends in my grandmother’s backyard, our lawn chairs scattered across a carpet of sun-dappled grass. We were all talking, sharing memories of my mom. I don’t remember the specific stories, but I know there was joy, more laughter than tears—even though, in my dream, my mom was also gone.

Like so many grieving families in 2020, we haven’t been able to gather or mourn together. My mother died of cancer in May, and my husband, kids and I had to watch the small funeral service via livestream from across the country. Until the day before, I wasn’t sure we would be able to do even that—two months into the pandemic, the funeral-home representative told me they had never set up

Death toll at 37 in Uganda unrest after Bobi Wine’s arrest

KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — The death toll from protests over the arrest of Ugandan opposition presidential hopeful and musician Bobi Wine has risen to 37, police said Friday. This is the country’s worst unrest in a decade, and more is expected ahead of the election early next year.

A weary-looking Wine was granted bail in the eastern town of Iganga after being arrested on Wednesday and accused of flouting COVID-19 guidelines that require presidential candidates to address less than 200 people.

“Let (President Yoweri) Museveni know that we are not slaves and we shall not accept to be slaves,” Wine said. “We shall be free.”


The 38-year-old opposition figure, who has been arrested many times in recent years, has captured the imagination of many Ugandans with his persistent calls for Museveni to retire after 36 years in power.

His lawyers brought the torn clothes the singer wore the day of

Jeremy Kyle may have ‘caused or contributed’ to death of TV guest | Jeremy Kyle

The television presenter Jeremy Kyle “may have caused or contributed to” the death of a guest suspected of killing himself after failing a lie detector test on the show, a pre-inquest review has heard.

Steve Dymond, 63, died at his home in Portsmouth, Hampshire, seven days after taking part in The Jeremy Kyle Show in an attempt to prove he had not cheated on his fiancee.

The coroner Jason Pegg said he had made Kyle an “interested person” for the inquest, saying the presenter was someone “who may have caused or contributed to the death of [Steve] Dymond”.

He added: “It might seem ludicrous not to have Mr Kyle to give evidence to give his take on the situation.”

The barrister for Dymond’s family, Caoilfhionn Gallagher QC, told the hearing in Winchester that Dymond became “distressed” after he failed the lie detector test.

She said he went on the show

False claim about Amy Coney Barrett ruling in teen’s death

CLOSE

Amy Coney Barrett was President Donald Trump’s third Supreme Court nominee, following Associate Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.

Wochit

The claim: Amy Coney Barrett ruled a police officer was not responsible for a Black teen’s death because ‘breathing is not a constitutional right’

Text on an image of now-confirmed Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett posted to the Instagram account @blklivesmatter makes a claim about one of her previous appeals court opinions: “Amy Coney Barrett Once Ruled That a Cop Wasn’t Responsible for a Black Teenager’s Death Because Breathing Isn’t a Constitutional Right.” It is credited to The Root writer Michael Harriot, who authored a piece with that title.

Harriot offers a scathing critique of Barrett’s background centered on a case where she  ruled in favor of qualified immunity for two police officers after a Black teenager died in their custody.

‘Mind Numbing’ 250,000 Death Toll Could Jump To 300,000 By End Of Year, Former CDC Chief Warns

Topline

As the country reels from surpassing 250,000 Covid-19 deaths on Wednesday, Richard Besser, the former acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned that at its current rate, the U.S. could reach an even more shocking figure of 300,000 fatalities by the end of the year.

Key Facts

During a Thursday appearance on Good Morning America, the former CDC chief called the 250,000 figure, surpassed Wednesday as the country reported its deadliest day since May, “mind numbing,” but predicted a downhill trajectory. 

“I worry that if we don’t change what we’re doing, we’re going to be having a conversation before the end of the year about 300,000,” Besser told host Robin Roberts. 

That would mean an additional 50,000 deaths in the next six weeks—since May, that number of fatalities
