Michele Voelkert from Roseville, California, wrote a letter to Biden after she lost her job at a startup clothing company. He read it, then called her. The White House on Saturday released a short video clip of their chat. That video is kicking off a return to the tradition of presidents speaking to the American people weekly, which had lapsed under Donald Trump. Also Saturday, Biden’s doctor reported that fractures in the president’s right foot have healed. Biden broke the foot in late November while playing with his dog Major.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Scattered showers continue to work through the state today, but we should see them decrease in intensity and coverage the closer we get to sunset. Combined rains from this event, including what started in some areas last night, will be from .25″-.75″ across 70% of the state.  We turn fully overnight dry tonight and stay dry through tomorrow and Sunday afternoon. Temps really climb this weekend. With strong south winds, we will see temps in the 80s statewide, and perhaps the warmest temperatures in 8 months. The map at right shows highs on Sunday. Scattered showers arrive a little faster on Sunday showing up mid to late-afternoon in western and NW Ohio, then continuing through the evening and overnight into Monday morning We are looking for a large part of the state to pick up a few hundredths to .5” with coverage at 70%. Thunderstorms are possible, especially in southern and southwest parts of Ohio A large part of our forecast for next week remains dry. Sunshine dominates for Monday and Tuesday morning. Sunshine also dominates from Wednesday afternoon through next Sunday. That leaves our “thorn in the side” of Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. We are going to leave a chance of scattered showers with 60% coverage in for that period, but think that moisture totals will be under .25″ in most of Ohio. We should end up in the best position of any state in the corn belt next week. We still think there is a good chance that the moisture stays well west in IL, but models are not coming around to that though process yet, so since we are at a critical juncture on planting…we need to be up front about the threat so we can plan. There still looks to be a good window behind that threat through the rest of the week over a majority of the state. The map at right shows rain potential through the next 10 days combined. The rest of the extended period features no change in our thoughts. We remain on track to see a little more activity returning as we finish the Memorial Day holiday weekend. For Memorial Day, we turn out cloudy to partly sunny with a few scattered showers and thunderstorms moving in. We are raising rain totals for Memorial Day to .25”-.75” with 60% coverage. Tuesday the 28 still looks like the wettest day of the period as we are upping our rain potential there to half to 2 inches and coverage at 80%. The rest of the extended period we are keeping dry with partly to mostly sunny skies the 29th through the 31stlast_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – A former soldier facing a murder charge in Ontario has lost a bid to halt his trial over concerns about delays in the case.The Supreme Court of Canada declined to hear Adam Picard’s challenge of an appeal court decision dismissing his arguments about the time it took to bring the case to trial.Picard was arrested in December 2012 in the killing of 28-year-old Fouad Nayel, who went missing in June that year.The trial was set to begin in 2016 but the Ontario Superior Court of Justice stayed the first-degree murder charge in light of new time limits established by the Supreme Court.In its appeal, the Crown argued the judge mischaracterized the nature of the delays, failed to consider the complexity of the case and did not properly account for a transitional period in applying the new rules.The Ontario Court of Appeal allowed the appeal last September and ordered the trial to proceed, prompting Picard to take his case to the Supreme Court.last_img read more
