  6. US government routinely sues companies for language that mirrors Trump's racist 'go back' tweets "Eric Bachman, a former Department of Justice Civil Rights Division prosecutor who specializes in anti-discrimination cases, told ABC News that the president's tweets would be "as close to a slam-dunk discriminatory claim as you can get" if he had uttered them as the head of a private company rather than as chief executive of the United States. "Frankly, if there was a board of directors, they would be taking action to fire him if he were the president of a company," Bachman said. "This would almost certainty violate Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and a host of other civil rights-related laws." https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/american-workers-face-legal-jeopardy-racist-back-insult/story?id=64389774

  21. The rainbow flag that is the symbol of the LGBTQ community was set to be raised at Reading, Pennsylvania, City Hall to kick off the city’s weeklong Pride celebration. But the mayor called things off just minutes before the ceremony because, he says, it’s a political movement. Mayor Wally Scott told CNN affiliate WFMZ that he doesn’t have anything against the LGBTQ community but that he doesn’t believe flags should be raised at City Hall for political movements. Ben Renkus, president of the Reading Pride Celebration, said dozens of people had gathered for the event on Monday but were let down when it didn’t happen. “We are angry and disappointed that our beloved city and the support that we have received over the past years has been tainted by a single person, Mayor Wally Scott,” Renkus said. The LGBT Center of Greater Reading also issued a statement: “What was supposed to be a proud and historical moment in history today for the City of Reading, the LGBTQ+ community and our allies, turned into a show of blatant, unacceptable discrimination.” Scott’s office has not responded to CNN’s request for comment. In June, the Reading Pride group asked City Council Member Donna Reed to help organize a flag-raising ceremony. After going through the proper channels within the administration, she said, the ceremony was set for 4:45 p.m. Monday. Just 15 minutes before the ceremony was set to take place, she said, she received a call from the public works director and the council president saying that the mayor refused to have the flag raised. Both City Council President Jeff Waltman and Berks County Commissioner Kevin Barnhardt attempted to change the mayor’s mind but were unsuccessful, according to Reed. The issue caught the attention of Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, who had ordered the display of the Philly Pride flag at the Capitol in Harrisburg in June. He asked Scott to reconsider his decision in a tweet. “Looking forward to attending Reading Pride to affirm our administration’s strong support for LGBTQIA+ community in PA,” he tweeted. Andrew Kearney, mayor of neighboring West Reading, told the LGBT Center of Greater Reading and Reading Pride that they could bring their flags to the steps of West Reading Borough Hall, he said. “I don’t think [Scott’s] actions were discriminatory,” Kearney said. “I just think that he thought that the better decision was to not allow them to do it … but his decision disappointed a lot of people.” Renkus said the Reading Pride council decided to file a formal discrimination complaint with the city’s Human Relations Commission. Kathiria Zorrilla, a member of the LGBTQ community in Reading, posted a video interaction with Scott four hours after the ceremony was canceled. “By saying we cannot raise our flag, by never showing up to Reading Pride, is you telling us the LBGTQ community is not supported and is not loved here in Reading when we are,” Zorrilla says in the video. Scott responds, “everybody has a mission or a movement that they’re doing, and I don’t get involved in movements.” View the full article
  22. The world of poker has a new champion. Hossein Ensan won the the 2019 World Series of Poker Main Event late Tuesday night in Las Vegas, earning himself $10 million and the prestigious bracelet to go with it. “It’s unbelievable, I cannot understand this moment. … I must go to sleep and wake up, and then maybe I know I have the bracelet,” Ensan told ESPN. “Maybe it’s a dream. I don’t know.” Ensan, who is from Germany, beat out 8,568 other players during the 10-day competition. It was the second-largest Main Event of all time, according to WSOP.com. The 55 year old is the oldest player to win this event in 20 years. Dario Sammartino of Italy took home $6 million for his runner-up finish. “He’s a really good guy,” Sammartino said of Ensan to ESPN after the tournament. “I met him a long time ago; we are friends and I really love him, so I’m really happy for him. Of course I wanted to win this, but he is the winner, so bravo.” View the full article
  23. Amazon said this year’s Prime Day was “once again the largest shopping event” in its history. The company said sales from its two-day shopping event surpassed its sales for last year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. Amazon didn’t reveal specific figures, like revenue. It also doesn’t typically disclose numbers for specific shopping days, with the only glimpse of sales being in its quarterly earnings. A record number of Prime members in the United States shopped during the extravaganza, according to Amazon. In total, Prime members globally bought more than 175 million items. Prime Day was also successful for Amazon’s line of deeply discounted gadgets. It was the “biggest event ever” for the electronics, which encompass the Fire TV Stick, Echo smart speakers and Fire tablets, among others. “Members purchased millions of Alexa-enabled devices, received tens of millions of dollars in savings by shopping from Whole Foods Market and bought more than $2 billion of products from independent small and medium-sized businesses,” CEO Jeff Bezos said in a release. “Huge thank you to Amazonians everywhere who made this day possible for customers.” In the United States, Instant Pots and DNA kits were the top-selling items. Prime members in the United States also bought more than 100,000 laptops, 200,000 TVs and more than 1 million toys. Prime Day also had a halo effect on Amazon’s competitors. Large retailers, or companies that generate more than $1 billion in revenue, had sales jump 68% over the two-day period, according to Adobe Analytics. Smaller retailers’ sales also spiked 28% for the same period, a reversal compared to last year when sales declined. “This suggests that people are comparison shopping more than ever and will open their wallets to those who offer the best deals, regardless of the size of the retailer,” said Jason Woosley, vice president of commerce product and platform at Adobe in a release.

  25. ST. LOUIS – A man charged with sexually assaulting a toddler is also a St. Louis-area doctor, as some of his patients are just finding out. Dr. Matthew S. Miller is charged with predatory criminal sexual assault of a child. Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons says the victim is a 2-year-old. “The allegations in these cases are horrific,” Gibbons told KTVI. “These are allegations of biting and physical abuse and sexual abuse. They’re shocking.” The alleged assault happened on June 23 in Madison County, Illinois. Patients at the Padda Institute Center for Interventional Pain Management clinic began wondering if he was also their doctor. Dr. Gurpreet Padda confirmed it’s the same person and added that he was just as shocked as anyone. Padda told KTVI off-camera that Dr. Miller won’t be coming back to his clinic. He said Miller sometimes did joint injections and minor surgeries for many clinics and surgery centers in the St. Louis area. KTVI found Miller was licensed as an osteopathic physician in Michigan until December 2018 when his license lapsed. Missouri shows he has an active license as an osteopathic physician and surgeon. Neither state lists any discipline. “People involved in medical professions – they’re caregivers. They’re the people who we entrust our lives and health to and we put so much faith and trust in them and to think that somebody who people have gone to for help might’ve been involved in something so horrific,” Gibbons said. “What’s charged here in Madison County, that’s pretty surprising.” Dr. Miller worked in St. Louis, which is a different jurisdiction, but Gibbons says he will connect with outside law enforcement if Miller’s profession put him in contact with other potential victims. “It’s important to know who they were in a bigger picture, to understand whether there were other things going on that people might want to be concerned about,” Gibbons said. Miller's public defender has filed a demand for a speedy trial. He’s scheduled for his first court appearance on Wednesday. View the full article
  26. WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Washington Monument just got even more iconic. On Tuesday, the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch, the 555-foot national symbol lit up with an image of the moon-bound shuttle blasting into space. The 363-foot projection of the Saturn V rocket will appear for two hours every night during the anniversary of the mission that put the first two humans — both Americans — on the moon. On Friday and Saturday, the celebration of this historical milestone will culminate in a 17-minute light show taking viewers back to July 16, 1969 when Apollo 11 made its giant leap for mankind from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center. And yes, that is a 40-foot-wide re-creation of the famous Kennedy Space Center countdown clock at the monument’s base. The illuminating display was launched by the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum and the US Department of the Interior. View the full article
  27. COLUMBUS, Ind. — A man accused of breaking into a garage to steal thousands of dollars in tools made it easy for police to find him. Columbus police said Chaz G. Berger, 24, left his wallet at the crime scene. Officers responded Tuesday morning to a home on Pearl Street after a homeowner said someone broke into his garage and took $4,000 in tools along with other items. The homeowner also handed over a wallet that Berger had dropped during the break-in, police said.
