8/26/2020 5:55:08 PM

By Ellen Knickmeyer, Cathy Bussewitz and John Flesher   Thousands of oil and gas operations, government facilities and other sites won permission to stop monitoring for hazardous emissions or otherwise bypass rules intended to protect health and the environment because of the coronavirus outbreak, The Associated Press has found.

By Marilynn Marchione   HONG KONG—University of Hong Kong scientists claim to have the first evidence of someone being reinfected with the virus that causes COVID-19. Genetic tests revealed that a 33-year-old man returning to Hong Kong from a trip to Spain in mid-August had a different strain of the coronavirus than the one he’d previously been infected with in March, said Dr. Kelvin Kai-Wang To, the microbiologist who led the work. The man had mild symptoms the first time and none the second time; his more recent infection was detected through screening and...

About 1,500 people took part in the experiment run by the University Hospital in Halle, each taking a coronavirus test ahead of time, testing negative, and having to wear protective masks throughout the day's testing. Researchers equipped each volunteer with...

8/20/2020 12:51:28 PM

By Darlene Superville and Alexandra Jaffe   WASHINGTON (AP)—At the 2016 Democratic National Convention, former first lady Michelle Obama told party members that “when they go low, we go high.” After four years of President Donald Trump, she came back to give it to them straight. “If you think things cannot possibly get worse, trust me they can; and they will, if we don’t make a change in this election,” Mrs. Obama told her party in a blunt and emotional appeal that capped the first night of the Democrats’ convention. The former...

8/20/2020 12:41:59 PM

By Kathlleen Ronayne and MaryClaire Dale   SACRAMENTO (AP)—Hours before Kamala Harris took the stage for the first time as Joe Biden's vice presidential pick, she received a text message from a childhood classmate with photos from their school days. A pensive Harris sits on the floor, dutifully looking ahead, a child in the center of an experiment in racial integration. She was among students who took the bus from their neighborhoods to school in the more affluent hillsides of Berkeley, California. “That's how it started. There's no question!”...

By Kat Stafford   DETROIT (AP)—China Cochran met Kamala Harris at a campaign event in Detroit last year and was swept away by her ambition, charisma and leadership. She hoped the California senator would advance in politics. So when Joe Biden named Harris on Tuesday as his running mate—making her the first Black woman on a major party's presidential ticket—Cochran wasn't just struck by the history. It represented a full-circle moment for Black women, who for generations have fought for their voices to be heard and political aspirations...

8/20/2020 11:42:37 AM

By Ryan Pearson   LOS ANGELES (AP)—Chris Evans became the most politically prickly “Avenger” a few years back with withering tweets about President Donald Trump and his Republican supporters. But the “Captain America” actor is staying relatively quiet during this presidential campaign. He wants to amplify the voices of elected officials instead. Last month, Evans launched a civic engagement app and website called A Starting Point, featuring short videos from both Republican and Democratic members of Congress and other U.S. politicians sharing...
