Audience members listen as Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden participates in a CNN town hall event on September 17 in Moosic, Pennsylvania. | Drew Angerer/Getty Images. Personnel is policy. The Biden team’s planning for a hypothetical administration is already well underway. And on questions of economic policy, the transition effort is already becoming a locus of a fight about what a Democratic White House should look like. On one side stand progressives, urging the creation of something like an ideological social democratic party. They want to draw a firm line between Democrats and the business community — leaning sharply against selecting personnel who’ve spent the Trump years working in the private sector in favor of career public.

Apple. Do you miss Myspace layouts? Great news! There was a time not so long ago when buying an Apple product meant buying into a very specific aesthetic, one designed by men in glass-walled offices who liked to think of themselves as high-minded futurists. Their vision for that future was almost always the same: sleek, minimalist, and above all, simple. But according to my TikTok feed over the past weekend, iPhones are now bastions of complex personal micro-identities. “How to make your iPhone home screen aesthetic AF!” begins a with 3 million “Likes.” On Twitter, users boast screenshots of their own creations, from to , to ,” and (a personal favorite). To do so, they’re using customizable widgets with Apple’s refreshed “Shortcuts” app as w.

Rosemary McCoy advocates for Amendment 4 at a Florida ACLU event on October 7, 2019, ahead of the state’s vote that November. | Bill Corbett. A conversation with the two Black women at the center of one of America’s most important felony disenfranchisement cases. After Florida voted overwhelmingly to let 1.5 million formerly incarcerated people regain the right to vote, Rosemary McCoy and Sheila Singleton, two Black women who had completed their sentences and probation for felony convictions, cast their ballots in 2019 for the first time in years. Just months later, they lost that newfound power: In May 2019, the Republican-controlled Florida legislature, backed by Gov. Ron DeSantis, enacted Senate Bill 7066. It required that formerly incarc.

It gave me the tools I needed to understand — and reckon with — my alcoholism. The last time I drank alcohol, I was found a full day later in the trunk of a car outside of a bar called Six Packs in rainy, rural northwestern Pennsylvania. We’d traveled to the region for my best friend’s wedding and I’d relapsed the night before the ceremony, sneaking off in the middle of the night to find a beer to calm my anxiety over being back “home.” One beer turned to many, and my last coherent memory of the spree was my decision to pop into a backcountry bar whose name gave me the drunken certainty that it contained hard-stomached male strippers (reader, I was mistaken). This latest relapse meant I’d missed my best friend’s wedding. To my horror, I rea.

Maine House Speaker Sara Gideon talks with the media during a press conference in her office at the State House in Augusta on June 30, 2017. Gideon is challenging longtime Sen. Susan Collins for her seat. | Gregory Rec/Portland Press Herald via Getty Images. Gideon could oust the Senate’s last moderate Republican from New England. Democrats have been trying to unseat longtime Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins for nearly 20 years and were handed resounding defeats each time. Sara Gideon could make 2020 different. Gideon, the Democratic speaker of Maine’s House of Representatives, is giving Collins the political fight of her life. Though she started out mostly unknown, apart from Maine political circles, polls show a very tight race with Gid.

Blacklight will show you which websites are sending your data to Facebook and other companies. | AFP/Getty Images. Enter a website address and Blacklight will tell you which trackers it has, what they do, and who else is getting your data. If you’ve ever used the internet (which I have to assume includes everyone reading this article on a news website), you’ve probably noticed that the things you do on one website tend to , or that certain social media platforms know a whole lot more about you than you thought you revealed. Meanwhile, you likely have no idea who knows what about you, or how they got that information. Data collection is the of the internet ecosystem, but it’s largely invisible to you, the average user, until you see its end r.

Quibi founder Jeffrey Katzenberg, left, and Quibi CEO Meg Whitman onstage at the Consumer Electronics Show, January 2020. | Robyn Beck/AFP via Getty Images. Quibi shows were supposed to be “quick bites.” But the company was supposed to last longer than this. Quibi was supposed to be revolutionary: A video service that was supposed to fill the gap between YouTube and HBO by bringing short, “premium” clips starring celebrities like Liam Hemsworth and Chrissy Teigen to your phone, for a price. But that was in the spring. Now, Quibi looks like it might be a fire sale: Just six months after launching — and after raising $1.8 billion — Quibi has started looking for a buyer. It’s a stunning admission that the high-profile service hasn’t found enoug.

A US Bradley armored personnel carrier drives near the town of Tal Tamr in northeastern Syria on November 10, 2019. | Delil Souleiman/AFP via Getty Images. About 100 US service members are going to northeast Syria to defend against Russian aggression. Despite President Donald Trump’s clear desire to and , the Pentagon will imminently send around 100 more service members to the war-torn nation to better confront Moscow’s forces. On Friday, the Bradley fighting vehicles, radar, and more fighter jets to conduct patrols would be on their way to northeast Syria. The decision comes just a month after during a with a Russian convoy that wasn’t expected in the area. The altercation clearly moved the Defense Department to provide reinforcements for t.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. | Stefani Reynolds/Getty Images. The practical and strategic considerations around a Supreme Court vote. Election Day is just over six weeks away. Can Senate Republicans hold a vote to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg before then? The short answer is yes, they can, if they — meaning, at least 50 Republican senators — want to. In recent decades, the Supreme Court confirmation process — from nomination to the final vote — . Typically, this time is taken up by vetting of the nominee’s history, writings, and career, and then hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee (which can last several days), before Senate leaders attempt to line up sufficient support for a floor vote. But there’s no

From left: Annie Murphy, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, and Dan Levy. | Pop TV. Schitt’s Creek was the first comedy ever to sweep its Emmys category. Here’s how to watch it. The first half of Sunday night’s might as well have been named the Schitt’s Creek awards. The Canadian sitcom swept cleanly through all seven categories it was eligible for during the televised ceremony, including Best Comedy Series, making it the first comedy in Emmys history to pull off such a feat. It was a classic Emmys move: In one fell swoop, the Television Academy (which oversees the Emmys) turned a comedy that could have been accurately described as under-the-radar for most of its six-season run into an overexposed behemoth of a show, to the point that you could

Efi Chalikopoulou for Vox. The new normal requires more work, patience, and good humor — from both new hires and the companies bringing them on. Good news! You’ve landed a new job at a time when the has put millions of people out of work. The bad news: You’ve landed a new job during a pandemic that’s forced millions of people to work remotely — including you. You’re not going to meet your co-workers for ... quite some time. That’s the scenario many Americans have found themselves in for the past six months, with no clear end in sight. Major companies such as they should not expect to return to their offices until July 2021 at the earliest; other employers haven’t made any projections at all. Work from home is the new normal, which means new

Signs displayed at a January 4, 2020, rally in Times Square organized by anti-war groups. | Erik McGregor/LightRocket via Getty Images. “This may be a peace election without a peace candidate,” an expert told Vox. For the first time in years, the foreign policy fight in the 2020 US presidential election isn’t about which candidate would best win wars, but rather which would most quickly end them. President and former Vice President are both trying to position themselves as the leader who will finally extricate America from its “forever wars” and focus more on domestic issues. In essence, in what has turned into a “peace election,” they’re both pushing to be the “peace candidate” despite having track records that make it hard to claim such a

US Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. | Nicholas Kamm/AFP via Getty Images. Our various undemocratic institutions are reenforcing each other in a deadly spiral. On a blustery November day, I found myself on the Boston Common with what turned out to be a . Our view was that Al Gore, who had clearly gotten more votes than his opponent, should be seated as the next president of the United States. It didn’t happen, and in fact, the line of argument we pursued — that democratic legitimacy ought to count for something — wasn’t even taken up by the Gore campaign or Democrats. They instead pursued a legalistic argument that was denied by a 5-4 majority of conservative Supreme Court justices. Two decades later, we’re staring down the barrel of e.

Trump speaks in Fayetteville on Saturday. | Melissa Sue Gerrits/Getty Images. Trump’s Minnesota rally featured praise of “good genes” and an extended apologia for Robert E. Lee. President Donald Trump is traveling around the country and holding packed campaign rallies in the middle of a pandemic with . These campaign rallies serve as snapshots of the president’s messaging as he heads into the home stretch of his flagging reelection campaign. The picture isn’t pretty. From the podium, Trump routinely mocks local regulations against large gatherings, which he refers to without a sense of irony as “.” Instead of touting his accomplishments or outlining a second-term agenda, Trump is praising white people for their genes and suggesting women of

Efi Chalikopoulou for Vox. Economist Richard Baldwin thinks Covid-19 could inspire a global shift to remote work. Since Vox Media ordered its workers to stay at home on March 12, I haven’t set foot in an office. I’ve been doing my job as a journalist from home, from the comfort (or, increasingly, back-aching discomfort) of my couch. This is not unusual. According to the , more than a third of American workers — 35.4 percent — teleworked in May as the country was in full lockdown. The share is lower now as some states have attempted to open up, but the Covid-19 crisis has nonetheless prompted the biggest expansion in telework in American history to date.

Wearing a mask while in an enclosed indoor space: still a good idea. | Stephanie Keith/Getty Images. The CDC said aerosols and small droplets were the “main way” the virus spreads. Then it retracted that guidance. Here are the facts. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the World Health Organization has stressed that primarily spreads through very close personal contact. The virus-laden droplets exhaled from a sick person’s mouth and nose, the thinking goes, are heavy, and fall to the ground before they can get much farther than 6 feet. But as the pandemic has unfolded, contact tracing studies have shown this isn’t always the case. In China, an air across three tables in a restaurant, infecting people seated at each one.
