Protesters march against evictions in New York, in September 2020. WASHINGTON: Millions of Americans could find themselves homeless starting Sunday as a nationwide ban on evictions expires, against a backdrop of surging coronavirus cases and political fingerpointing. With billions in government funds meant to help renters still untapped, President Joe Biden this week urged Congress to extend the 11-month-old moratorium, after a recent Supreme Court ruling meant the White House could not do so. But Republicans balked at Democratic efforts to extend the eviction ban through mid October, and the House of Representatives adjourned for its summer vacation Friday without renewing it. Several left-wing Democrats spent the night outside the Capitol in protest -- calling out their colleagues over the failure to act. "We slept at the Capitol last night to ask them to come back and do their jobs. Today’s their last chance," tweeted Congresswoman Cori Bush, who has herself experienced ... » Learn More about Millions of Americans risk eviction as virus cases spike

BITCOIN hit its highest level since mid-May and continues to build momentum. The largest cryptocurrency is gaining for a 10th day in the past 11 and traded up to $42,390 on Saturday, its highest level since May 20. Market watchers have pointed to $40,000 as an important inflection point. "A run like this certainly suggests some flow backing,” said Jonathan Cheesman, head of over-the-counter and institutional sales at crypto derivatives exchange FTX, in a note Saturday. "Of course, it now needs to stabilize here -- and above the high from May 20 would be further confirmation.” Bitcoin, which for weeks trended downward from its mid-April record near $65,000, has now spent more than a week building back as supportive comments from Elon Musk and Cathie Wood helped bump it out of a declining trend. Digital-asset-related jobs postings by Amazon.com Inc. and resulting speculation helped as well. Oanda Corp. senior market analyst for North America Edward Moya offered a note of caution ... » Learn More about Bitcoin rallies past key $40,000
There are two broad ways that dictionaries define "discrimination". The first, and perhaps the more commonly-understood way, frames discrimination as something that is always bad. An example of this first way of defining "discrimination" can be found in the Oxford dictionary : "The unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people, especially on the grounds of ethnicity, age, sex, or disability." If someone practices " discrimination " in this way, they might be described as " discriminatory ". The second kind of definition however, simply focuses on the ability to understand the difference between things. Thus, "discrimination" according to the same Oxford dictionary entry, can also mean: "Recognition and understanding of the difference between one thing and another." Here, " discrimination " is not " discriminatory ". Instead, someone practising it could be described as " discriminating ".
