Topline

The nation’s top infectious diseases official, Dr Anthony Fauci, suggested at a virtual UC Berkeley event on Thursday that life may start going back to normal around fall 2021—but that hinges on getting a vaccine and adhering to social distancing measures, while he added that masks would likely still be necessary.

Louisville police release body camera videos showing night Breonna Taylor was killed: “My girlfriend’s dead”

Louisville police have released a batch of evidence from an investigation of the raid that killed Breonna Taylor in March. It raises new questions over why police targeted her home in an effort to prosecute her ex-boyfriend.

A police lieutenant who came to the scene after the shooting told investigators, “something really bad happened.”

The material includes more than 250 videos and more than 4,000 pages of documents. It was released Wednesday as the outcry for justice for Taylor continues.

Jupiter Killed Earth-Like Environment On Hellish Planet

KEY POINTS

  • Jupiter’s early gravitational pull may have killed Venus’ habitable surrounding
  • Venus has extreme temperatures that can kill any form of life
  • The case on Venus serves as a warning for Earth to avoid a similar temperature rise

Venus would have been capable of hosting life similar to Earth if not only for Jupiter’s interference in its planetary motion. The planet, named after the Roman goddess of love and beauty, was thrown off by the largest planet in our solar system from its original orbit around the sun.

The planet, also dubbed as Earth’s twin, was not as hostile to life forms as to how it is today, if not for Jupiter’s behavior in the solar system, according to a study published in the Planetary Science Journal. The study said Jupiter changed its planetary course, moving closer and then away again from the sun. Since it is a huge
